Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: She more than a healer............

I just looked up Sirene and she has 70 spells available.

She has a bunch that could help. Dispel Evil and such.

Wow what a bunch of great choices.



Protection From Evil
Sphere: Protection
Range: Touch Components: V, S, M
Duration: 3 rds./level Casting Time: 4
Area of Effect: 1 creature Saving Throw: None
When this spell is cast, it creates a magical barrier around the recipient at a distance of 1 foot. The barrier moves with the recipient and has three major effects:
First, all attacks made by evil or evilly enchanted creatures against the protected
creature receive a penalty of -2 to each attack roll, and any saving throws caused by such
attacks are made by the protected creature with a +2 bonus.
Second, any attempt to exercise mental control over the protected creature (if, for
example, it has been charmed by a vampire) or to invade and take over its mind (as by a
ghost's magic jar attack) is blocked by this spell. Note that the protection does not prevent
a vampire's charm itself, nor end it, but it does prevent the vampire from exercising
mental control through the barrier. Likewise, an outside life force is merely kept out, and
would not be expelled if in place before the protection was cast.
Third, the spell prevents bodily contact by creatures of an extraplanar or conjured
nature (such as aerial servants, elementals, imps, invisible stalkers, salamanders, water
weirds, xorn, and others). This causes the natural (body) weapon attacks of such creatures
to fail and the creature to recoil if such attacks require touching the protected creature.
Animals or monsters summoned or conjured by spells or similar magic are likewise
hedged from the character. This protection ends if the protected character makes a melee
attack against or tries to force the barrier against the blocked creature.
To complete this spell, the priest uses holy water or burning incense.
This spell can be reversed to become protection from good, with the second and third
benefits remaining unchanged.
The material components for the reverse are a circle of unholy water or smoldering

Protection From Evil, 10' Radius
Range: Touch Components: V, S, M
Duration: 2 rds./level Casting Time: 3
Area of Effect: 10-ft. radius Saving Throw: None
around creature touched
The globe of protection of this spell is identical in all respects to a protection from evil
spell, except that it encompasses a much larger area and its duration is greater. The effect
is centered on and moves with the creature touched. Any protected creature within the
circle can break the warding against enchanted or summoned monsters by meleeing them.
If a creature too large to fit into the area of effect is the recipient of the spell, the spell
acts as a normal protection from evil spell for that creature only.
To complete this spell, the caster must trace a circle 20 feet in diameter using
powdered silver. The material component for the reverse is powdered iron.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Thanks alot......

Gee Keeper... "With Ulthok leading"....

He was just getting use to having a "meat shield" for a change, .

Looks like I'll have to teach some else how to find traps for the next adventure.

Tann says we are up against very strong "black" magic. I take that as the warning that magic against magic will be tough. I'm thinking we will need to have united attacks, combination attacks that distract, disrupt and drain the spells and magic of those creatures. That can leave openings for melee attacks. Timing and strategy is becoming more important.

So I'm thinking about:
1.) Protection and strengthening of Althena
2.) Support and strengthening of Melee fighters and spell casters
3.) Disruption of Magic attacks
4.) General attacks.

So check Ulthok's spells and give me your thoughts. Magget's spells are almost the same so they came compliment each other easily. If you need I can email the list that has the description of each spell. I use that to help me pick my spells.

To make it easier here's Ulthok's list from his character sheet. He has a ring that doubled his level 1, 2, and 3 spells.

1st LvL: 4 [8] / 2nd LvL: 4 [8] / 3rd LvL: 4[8] / 4th LvL: 3 / 5th LvL: 3

Lvl 1: Audible Glamour / Burning Hands / Change Self / Chill Touch / Detect Magic / Detect Undead / Enlarge / Find Familiar / Jump / Magic Missile / Read Magic / Sleep / Shocking Grasp / Spider Climb / Wall of Fog.
Lvl 2: Blindness / Continual Light / ESP / Invisibility / Knock / Locate Object / Melf's Acid Arrow / Mirror Image / Rope Trick / Shatter / Spectral Hand / Summon Swarm / Web.
Lvl 3: Blink / Dispel Magic / Fireball / Flame Arrow / Fly / Hold Person / Invisibility 10’Radius / Lighting Bolt / Monster Summoning 1 / Non-detection / Secret Page / Sepia Snake Sigil / Tongues / Vampiric Touch / Wraithform.
Lvl 4: Confusion / Dig / Dimension Door / Emotion / Fear / Fire Trap / Ice Storm / Improved Invisibility / Monster Summoning 2 / Polymorph Self / Rary's Mnemonic Enhancer / Solid Fog / Wall of Ice / Wizard Eye
Lvl 5: Advanced Illusion / Animate Dead / Cloudkill / Cone of Cold / Distance Distortion / False Vision / Hold Monster / Major Creation / Monster Summoning 3 / Mordenkainen’s Faithful Hound / Sending / Summon Shadow / Teleport / Wall of Force.

DM EDIT: OK my fault here as I have slowly been updating player spellbooks this past month to reflect all the time traveling and the towns the party has been through as far as spells possibly learned and Ulthok was the last and I forgot to update his book. AS such the above spells in Ulthoks spellbook are now correct and have also been added to his character sheet.

I've been having one those weeks that everyone else usually has. Customer visits, prospective buyers visits, new product layouts and our ISO audit starts tonight and finishes on Monday. I'm my stress level will drop Tuesday when much of this is past.

I have done some home work and pulled slang and Chinese phrases from the ref. books so I can start using them more.

I'll get a post up by Sunday night. Mostly looks like Jon going on about the baby, about not worrying now about who goes to the party and preparing for the flight. There are other things besides the Feds to worry about.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Ideas........

Hearing Althena’s words to stay gave Ulthok comfort, she had defeated that impulse and now they could rest and refresh the skills they would need to their next challenge. But true to “his” nature the Halfling Thief had to see what was behind those doors.

The allure of treasure, useful weapons or a alternate way to the sword drew him to peek into rooms that lined the chamber. With skill, stealth and cunning Ulthok made a quick appraisal of each room.

To his disappointment there wasn’t much of great service for the band. Those great double doors that had appeared from behind hovel of the roaches were those same mysterious doors that the party had seen from so far away and were the main entrance. Imagine their surprise had they tried to enter the temple through them just to crash into that mass of debris, goo, stink and bugs.

Returning to the group he told them of the weapons and that they were still in good shape but none of magical advantage. As he settled in to rest and study, the thought occurred to him that they be better prepared if they could coordinate their spells.

“I know that our spells are often our most guarded secrets and possessions, but now perhaps we would serve ourselves best by talking over what spells we have so as to strengthen our defense. This evil has thwarted our offensive spells, but perhaps a few well chosen spells backed up by others, we can control our surroundings and aid our warriors. I’m willing to open my list to my friends if it will add to our strength.”

Ulthok pull his book of knowledge from his pack and waited for his companions to respond.

Second, I got to promote the Motto, so count me in when you restart.

I need more practice doing things outside my comfort zone so this is a good story line.

Now if someone starts a "Dresden", I may run to that, I really like those books and there are bunch of cool character ideas.

Okay dokay......

Here a chance to team up on spells, look at others available spells and let share ideas on how to build a strong mix of spells.

We'll need our best, but don't forget that Tann always has surprises.

BTW Tann, in Ulthok's quick search did he also check those big double doors at the end of the room? It sounded like they were different, not just room doors, but then I've been wrong before. I was hoping for an option to the stairs, you know us thieves don't like a frontal attack. i was hoping for a secret back stair.

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: "Move Out....."

The natural impulse to help drove Doc to aid the scared lab tech. But when he man broke down and ran Jack just stood there staring.

The man reached doors just as they burst open from the force of massive tentacles. Bellowing an angry cry the mote monster grabbed the man and yanked him from the room. The terrified screams were cut short by the gut wrenching crunch and ripping of flesh and bone.

The Doc stood helpless as Brutal yelled, "SONOFABITCH!"……, ""How often do we have to kill this!?"

As they all drew weapons Romo yelled, “Hold fire!, hold fire!” ….."“Move out of reach, don’t waste your ammo!” “Captain we need to move out of this area now!, ……What are your orders sir!"

Grabbing his gear and weapon Jack ignored the pain to follow the sergeant and the captain’s orders.

The Captain looked to team’s guide for advice, “Miss? Is it possible that creature’s are still coming from this rift as we stand here? If so, we need to kill the power as soon as we can. Any idea where we can find these generators that poor fellow was talking about?”

"The crypts below!" She shouted over the growling of the creature. "The stairs by the armour is the fastest way!"

Tentacles thrust into the room again, searching blindly, thrashing wildly, they break through mortar and blocks. The structure shakes and rocks.

Brutal was moving forward when the Sarge called, “Halt”. Jake snapped to a stop as a large block lands where he would have been.

Jack gasped as he saw the building stone just miss him comrade. “Geeze, I’m glad you listen to someone, now get your a** down them steps and clear the way.”

"It is going to bring the roof down!" Greta yells and starts moving toward the stairwell.

Moving out Doc followed to the stairs.

"Great googoly moogoly” Ulthok moaned.

“Rest, don’t rest. Explore, don’t explore! “

“ I am here to follow My Lady. I will follow you as needed, but My Lady those stairs were glowing red hot. Only enchanted metal could cool so quickly to allow all passage in fifteen minutes. Our brave Paladins have made many of their own their own weapons and would know how long it takes metal to cool. I fear the forces are once again driving us and this time focusing on you. The forces speaking to you may be using half truths to drive us to rush in. You are sensitive to this evil and now it may be trying to use that against you. I for one know this force, it drove me when I should have known better, but I am a poor fool of a Halfling.

Would it be so unusual to think that it would also hide that could be used against it, say behind the giant home of enchanted roaches? Why would those doors be the last in the room? Could it be a different way to the sword, less protected, less obvious?

I simple propose a choice to charging head on into a waiting enemy.

Subject: Yikes................

Nothing like being caught in the open at close range. I'm seeing some real painful happenings.

Getting behind WWI is not going to be easy, so it looks like a bunch of toe to toe blasting. For J.B. he only has clear shots at 1,2,5,& 4. Trader is between him and rest. Hummer crew 3 & 4 also has clear shots at 1 & 2.

Hummer crew 1 & 2 have clear shots at W & GP. Jak & Kristy seem clear to W, GP & 9. Ryan and Trader to 9, 8, 6 & 5.

The other badies, including the lady driver are in the back row using the front row as cover.

If J.B. survives the first round and is able to run, I'm planning to try and get to H1 and it's 50cal. Cover and firepower. Or if the door to WW1 is just behind J.B. maybe diving in there and using the gun ports.

I would guess everyone is going to seek some kind of cover.

Those are my first reactions, but I'm open to ideas.

Ok group, what are your thoughts on the attack?

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: "Good Stew"..............

After making his announcement to the crew Jon went to finishing his preparations.

Loosing himself in the simple tasks of preparing the food gave Jon the time he needed to clear his mind. As he worked someone enter to galley. The familiar fragrance that now filled his senses was not from the bubbling concoction on the heating area.

Jon flashed back to the morning when he awoke in the hospital bed with an angel‘s face hovering over him. It was Doctor Stephanie Young; her perfume and the smell of her hair filled his senses. She gently touch him as she examined the dressing she had placed over his wounds. Jon had gotten himself shot up pretty badly and Doctor Stephanie had saved his life. He had always been grateful to her but there was something more. Whenever she came around, well he just felt better; no that’s not it, he felt….. well …something nice.

Now somehow the Doc had asked to join.. his crew. She said she needed to get away and find herself, well that was fine with Jon.

Her softly accented voice asked, "Great mind or fools?" .... "I was thinking the same thing. Mind if I make some sweet Boa alongside you?"

Jon looked over his should and saw Stephanie’s smiling face. As he opened his mouth the words plopped out in their usual clumsy way when he tried to talk casually to the doctor, “Sure.. ah .. I mean. . No.. ah… no I mean it’s fine, yeah sure come on.” Jon sighed heavily as he blushed and turned back to the stew. They continued to work side by side in small cooking area of the galley.

Jon turned to get some more water and found himself face to face with the doctor, they had both turned to move at the same time. Jon had stepped forward, pitcher in one hand, ladle in the other, Stephanie had a pot in one hand and spoon it other; they stood there arm out like wings. Jon gasp as Stephanie’s soft body was pressed up against him.

As the doctor smiled up at him Jon said, Ah.. sorry.. okay.. you go left and I’ll go right.” Stephanie laughed and said, “That will just keep us in the position only over there.” Jon blushed again and said,” Oh..yeah…right … ah…well you stay there and I’ll go around.” With their arms still out to the sides Jon slide across Stephanie as he move causing her to laugh softly, Jon blushed again. At this rate the heat from his face would have been enough to cook the stew.

Although Jon was a bit embarrassed he had enjoyed the closeness, he had momentarily looked into Stephanie’s clear green eyes as they stood face to face, there had not been any alarm or displeasure. Jon set the pitcher in the sink and turned to speak to Stephanie. As she walked away from him he was struck again by her beauty. The words were forming on his lips as Ken bounded into galley.

Recovering quickly Jon said to the crewman, “If you’re hungry grab a bowl, let’s sit and talk.” Jon hoped the redness was gone from his face or at least it looked like he was working hard to make the meal.

As the rest of the crew arrived they each grabbed some food and started telling what saw and felt. Jon listened closely as his crew went over the events of evening.

Grace’s assessment of the barrels alarmed him. If she could feel something odd about them then so could the marshal, but why hadn’t he said anything, especially after that remark about smuggling. Grace was right to be twitchy this time.

Jason seemed to be a bit over political, but then he seemed did know that world better than the rest of them. When Jason have finished Jon step forward.

“Thanks, we all need to be sharing our thoughts, I hope no one got offended by honest assessments. I didn’t hear any bitter talk so let’s just chew on the facts. Grace, you got a point about them barrels and Jason I’m sorry but we need to know if they’re hiding something. Feds won’t care if we say we didn’t know, we’d be guilty until proven innocent. So Doc if your stuff will help see inside those things then I feel we got to do that. We’ll decide what to do after a peek.

As for the party, well we still need to get there first before we worry about who goes, who stays, who talks and such, but I remember that there are invites for all of us. So if we go, we all go, heck we may never get the chance to see that kind of thing again. Jason, for what its worth we’ll let you tell us some about proper party manners, but it ain’t like it would become a regular thing. If they get their wine to them, the Baron will be happy, so we don’t have to hobnob, just smile, eat , drink and tell'um how fast we can deliver. Good place to find more work from folks with credits. We just try to stay out of trouble, right Ken?” Jon shot a quick smile as his PR man.

“Okay, so if you think of anything else bring it, we don’t need any surprises that from something we didn’t mention because we didn’t think it was important.” With that Jon grabbed his own bowl of stew and started to chow down. “Say, this boat has a hellava good cook, hope its captain is as good.”
