Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Things That Make You Go Hmmmmm....


Although the spell had removed most of the ice Ulthok was still disappointed. He'd read in this spell it could cut through ten feet of stone to open a passage ten foot by foot by ten foot. He'd used it to destroy the catapult that was used against Castle before they had left on this mission. But there stood the doors with still a few inches of ice on them.

But be that as it may things were as they were and they needed to to continue to gain information and move on quickly. Ulthok took the time to search the door threshold, pillars and space for tricks and traps. The tall female statues reminded him of Valkyries that had aided them and he hoped this was more a reference to them and not other Amazon warriors. The thief in him knew to check to see which way the doors were hinged and would move. This would help to figure how best to try to open them.

The clues they had discovered so far had not pointed them in sure direction. This way was as good ...or bad as any.

In one last test the mage pounded on the ice where to two great doors met to see if his strength was enough to flex and crack the remaining layer of ice, this should be its weakest spot. If he felt movement or saw cracking then perhaps Cor's mighty hammers would work to clear the last ice quickly.

Sorry for not being much help but I've been traveling for business a lot. Not much time to think about "What ifs."

We can add another character, but Lum may not be as warm to him as the rest. If we have no history with his character then to Lum he is an outsider. Lum will protect the party from him as well as the creatures they encounter.

Lum's trust is not easily earned. There are rumors of other party members that disappeared and never returned, but Lum still had their loot for the boss.

This month has been tough for me too. I've been traveling for business a lot recently and when I get back I've been a bit fried. I have to go to Mexico week of the 28th so between prep and keeping up at the office my down time hasn't been very productive.

Made good start with Haemis, but got little away from finishing it. Hope to still get my reply finished.

Subject: What's Behind Door Number One..........


Ulthok called out to party that he saw small streams of air showing the water to be indeed warm but not appearing to be scalding hot. He could not guess the exact temp without testing, which he would leave to others.He described that the water was quite clear, as if almost transparent like a pane of glass. he told that he could see the water flowing in and out from a pair of large holes just below the waters crest. Though the holes were to small for a giant they were big enough for even Lothor to swim through if desired. Perhaps some sort of natural intake outtake system?

Turning to north end of the room he drew near the doors with the odd looking pillars. These too seemed covered in perhaps a foot and half of ice. Chiseling through that hard thickness would take time and the party needed to make a choice on how to leave this room. So deciding make it easier if they wanted to go this way he called a spell of disintegrate and removed the ice from the steel doors.

(Spell will clear a 10x10 space around the door, or maybe even take out the doors to make a 10x10 opening.)

Subject: Bad Kitty..........


Lum had moved himself between the spellcasters and the robots and fired his heavy blaster, but missed as the creature zigged and zagged towards him. It leaped at him and attacked with its blade like claws, piercing through his armour and causing some painful injury (Light Wounds) to his chest and sides. The cat moved away rapidly and swung around to attack again.

Lum held his ground to stay between these creatures and his party.

As the cat fought the light in its middle grew brighter, this was not good. It may be learning,intensifying or calling for help. There sounds now coming from the other side of the pile.

The cat had moved more rapidly than Lum had anticipated but now he knew better and wouldn't be so kind. As cat leaped off him and away so he took his opportunity and fired again with heavy blaster as the cat was about to land and turn to attack again. The cat would need a moment touch something solid before it could move or change direction.

(O.O.C. Hopefully Lum's Quick Relexes and +2 for Accuracy will help here.)

Subject: It's OK....


It was just quick thought. The others could attack the paused cat.

Maybe as the cat that just attack lept away in might give Lum the opportunity to blast it as it turned back to attack.

So I'll go with that and just keep pressing the attack on the one that hurt him.

Boo if you have something that could affect the paused cat this is the time to use it. You get first action and that cat gets second so you can hurt it that would be great. Tann might be able to finish it off.

Subject: The Spell....


Well Tann wasn't any help on if the spell would take out both the ice and the steel door. He just said try it and see what happens.

So I'll have Ulthok blast the door with gnarly pillars. The frost Giant can go beat on the door with the lady pillars. Once the ice is gone we can choose a direction. But sure Alyia gets the Endure spell, it shouldn't make any difference if she polymorph she is still her just in a different body form.

Go ahead toss the coin to see what happens. This should get more information.

Here's a thought, how about Rhy casts a blast on the cat attacking Lum and Lum blasts the the one now paused. The heavy blaster may do some damage.

Not sure what to make of the lights in the cats getting brighter. Hope it isn't a bomb.

Just thought that the water could be sea water with lots of salt that would help prevent the freezing.

Any ideas on how to check that?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: If We Choose The Doors......


Ulthok has a disintegrate spell that he could use on one of sets of doors.

I feel Ulthok should know enough about the spell to know if it would take out both the ice and the steel door or just the ice in a 10x10 to the doors. I've asked Tann to clarify the effect.

This would either get us through the doors or at lease to the doors. Someone else could then do something to open the doors.

As for the water, that really concerns me. If it is -40 in the room and the water doesn't freeze then it must be pretty hot coming in. It cools fast but goes out. Maybe the group could move over the table and chairs and grab a chair to stick in the water to test the temperature. It may not do anything.

If we were to try the water escape we'd need air and Sirene's temperature spell.

We are doing a 5.0 table top in the Ravenloft theme.

Subject: Information.........


Well we got some good advice and a bit more information.

Ice on doors is about 18 inches thick, may be a bit tough to crack.

The pool may be warm and a possible exit from the room.

Mild magic coming through the doors but may be being blocked by the ice.

We may not want to stay here too long but need to think through the options.

Any ideas on how to test the water without exposing skin?

We only got info on the West door, we still need to examine the other.

USS Peregrine; Deck 5, Gym – 1805


Haemis laughed again, reaching across he slipped his hand around the mans wrist and shook it in a good proper warriors shake. "Haemis McTavish, chief engineer." he released the mans grip and laid back on the mat. "Pleased to meet you Lieutenant Reed. Yer pretty good with a stick laddie. Be interesting to see what you could do with a sword." he took a moment, then slowly sat back up. "How long have ye been aboard the Peregrine?" he slowly stood up and walked over to pick up the staff and return it to the case they were kept in.

John got up and followed the Scot to the equipment locker. "Well I've been with the crew about nine months now ,but with all that's been going on in the last couple of days it is starting to feel much longer," John said with a sigh. "Its been fairly quiet and I've been learning the Tac and Com chair under some really good folks.... My last CTO and the Captain have been great examples and even better teachers....One thing about a smaller boat is that there are plenty of chances to sharpen your skills or learn new ones."

John toweled off a bit more, "I don't know which shift you're coming off but would you care to share a meal?"

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Pool Room.......


The party finally reached the bottom of the stair and found a large room. The group was able to stay close to Sirene and her control of the temperature had kept them warm. But now Ulthok needed to explore and check the room.

Cor then spoke up."Well, lets take a look around and see what this room holds. Careful ta not touch anything that looks interesting" casting a looked at Ulthok as he said, "Once we get more information we can chose our next step"

"Well give one of those Endure Cold spells so I can leave Sirene's protective cocoon....Peri, you stay close the Sirene and anyone else wanting to explore have Cor or Rayne give you an Endure spell too."

(assuming Cor casts the spell..Ulthok will check the pool and the doors to see how they work. He'll check table and look for any traps in the room.)

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Warm Metal.........


There is a Warm Metal spell that can be cast on the doors we want to open. That should melt the ice and allow us to open that set of door.

Also rereading Tann's notes he is implying we did not expressly say we have an Endure spell cast on each of us. So don't venture off from Sirene without asking to have that spell cast on you.

Subject: Cold Water?


Cor should check the water before he jumps in, if he plans to jump in. It could be the source of the minus 40 temp, might be a bit of a system shock.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Cold......


It is minus 40 in the room so if we don't search as a group around Sirene in her warmth spell bubble we will take a little bit of damage. So if you venture away scurry back as long as the spell lasts.

I plan to have Peri stay close to Sirene.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Sorry...............


RL got real tough at work for me recently so I'm sorry about not being around so much. We need to post searching the room so we can get more info from Tann. To exit the room we have four choices. To go back up the slippery stairs, to figure how to open a door (two choices) and pass through or to go through the water to see if it leads somewhere.

If we wish to check the water I believe Cor can do that as of his magic thing that says he doesn't need to eat or breath. Is there anyone with something that allows underwater breathing so at least it is a team?

The doors will take some study and a choice made from the answers we get from Tann.

We may find something else in the search that was not obvious enough for Tann to tell us in his post of this room.

We still have not found what is causing the cold. If the door for the room to the stair was a portal to a distant cold region Tann would have told us that, I hope, because of the searching Sirene did should have discovered its magic. Tann said the cold is natural, not magic, so it makes sense to go to a cold region of the world.

Ok, there is some food for posts, we need intel to decide our next major move.

Tann, how about a room drawing?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Map.............


How about a quickie map or area layout. Sort of give us the relationship of the stairs, the doors and the pool.

Is the pool water warm? Can we see steam? If this is such a minus 40 degrees cold area there must be something keeping the pool fluid. Is the pool salt water? You said it looks like a bath, is it sculpted / built or a natural pool?

How thick is the ice on the iron doors? Are the doors taller than the pillars? How wide are the doors? Do the doors look like they have a lock? Do the doors look like they swing in or out?


I'll think of more later.
