Subject: When Is Door Not A Door?


Peri watched as Ulthok seemed to become concerned and maybe even angry when the door did not open again. They had planned so well and this was such a disappointment.

Flying up closer to the stone structure something didn't seem correct. As she stared at the lines of the door she noticed that it just a slight bit crooked.

"Look here... the door didn't close completely. It's a bit ajar. Maybe it is a little stuck or something from slamming closed?"

She hoovered at the edge seam and tried to pull on it. "Well ..is someone going to help here?"

Subject: Mulligan..........


I clarified some information with Tann.
when he posted:

With the Wall of Fire's sudden hot temperature blasting the room, the ice holding the coffin door in place instantly melted. With a loud crashing sound the door slammed back into place, steam and smoke rising from it.


His intention was for us to know (figure out) the door broke from the freezing and quick thaw of the hinges from the hot fire spell. I told him as I read it seemed normal for a stuck / frozen door to slam shut and didn't get a clue of it possibly having broken mechanics when it was a magic operated door. I may have got it if there had been some sound or something when Ulthok tried the gems again.

He's allowing a mulligan and we shall discover that the door needs to be pried open.

I will post that Peri notices the door ajar.

So start to thinking on how to pry open the door.

BTW, from Sirene's spell on the door we should have noticed that the "Evil feeling" in the room was gone. Tann told me that the Evil was in a trap that would have sprung had we tried to open the tombs any other way than using the gems. We avoided a really ugly battle that some most likely would not have survived.

Stardate 2365.02.09 (Tuesday - 42137.6)
USS Peregrine; Deck 5, Gym - 1805



They approached the box and took a glance at the interior, they could even smell the stain that was used coming out of the box, it was subtle but there. It brought a smile to the man's lips, he nodded and plucked one of the staff from the box and felt its weight. "Not exactly my area of expertise, but I think I can manage to put up a decent fight." he said, and began putting on the safety gear. "Where did you learn this art?" he asked moving toward the other side of the mat, taking a few swings with the staff. He turned and set himself, allowing the staff to hang across his body in one hand while he did the strap to the head guard.


"When I was eighteen I attended a Scouting World Jamboree in Gilwell England,. I meet some local Scouts that told me about their "Master At Arms" merit badge,. One of the skills was to learn to use the Quarter Staff. ,..They gave me a copy of a vintage pamphlet that showed the six offensive strikes and the six defense parries,, They are all swing moves but they can be made into thrust moves. So for the next couple of weeks they showed me the left leg strike, right leg strike, left flank, right flank, left cheek and right cheek and how they used to tool,I took my share of bruises but it was so fluid and so fun. ,..With that I'll only use swing moves."

Haemis took the staff in both hands, and gave him a salute and held the staff at the ready. He was not prepared for the agility of John, his first strike coming swiftly, it was all Haemis could do to get his stick up to stop his opponent from smashing him across the head or shoulder.

Shifting his feet he nearly took another blow that came from the side, then found himself on his back looking up at John. He had been swept from his feet in a fluid motion on what Haemis could only have guessed was a pivot and back swing low at his feet.

Slowly he got to his feet, and took a deep breath and set himself again. This was a lot more swift than a sword that was certain. But his eyes were starting to play catch up, blocking a bit more easy but still not exact. He circled the man and smiled. "Your very good!" he said.

John could tell that the man before him was taking it all in. Forgetting a basic of his training John tried faint left and his opponent took the advantage and place resounding smack to his right thigh. John's leg buckled slightly. ,. Spinning to avoid the next blow he had to throw up a parry as he man had reversed his staff to a two handed down ward strike,.. Rolling his staff john drove the attacking staff tip to floor. Putting up his guard John stepped back quickly. "Well you're learning quickly."

Need to look back a bit. We missed something.

Stardate 2365.02.09
USS Peregrine; Lt. Reid's Quarters - 1700



The cabin light draw up from night time dark to morning glow as the wake setting transformed Lt. Reid's quarters. Since before the Peregrine had docked at star base 118 John had been awake. The events that unfolded had kept him up forty eight hours, longer than he had planned. Coming off Gamma bridge duty he had caught a brief snack with Nurse Miraan, but fatigue forced him to cut their time short. Now after a glorious sleep he was ready to start again.

Catching a quick shower John fetched a coffee and sticky bun from the replicator and sat at his com station to catch up on events. After a few minutes he let out low whistle. John knew that the Captain's Mast was required and the sentence was just, but it stuck in his craw that P.O. Crane was in the brigg and Ensign Agris was assigned to the Coronado.

Deciding he needed to loosen up and perhaps vent a little anger he grabbed his workout bag and headed to the gym.


Stardate 2365.02.09 (Tuesday - 42137.6)
USS Peregrine; Deck 5, Gym - 1800



John stepped into gym to in time to see new crew member step away from the heavy bag ,. He picked up a large weighted chunk of metal, much like a sword with a hilt, but a round barrel instead of a blade. It was weighted for training as if it were a sword but more for the weight. He began dancing around the mat as though running through exercises he had done so many times before. He swung the chunk of metal and it rebounded bouncing off the punching bag stopping him. He stood staring at the bag, for a good long time the chunk of metal held much as if he was squaring off with an opponent, close to his body, upright ready for what was to come.

With a bit of admiration and a slight chuckle John said, "I think you killed it!"

In a warm brogue, "Not entirely." he said taking a step back and a deep breath. His cheeks were a bit rosy. "But tha will teach it!" he said pointing his practice weapon at the bag. "Shouldn't sneak up on unsuspecting individuals swing'n large weapon's." he said shaking the sword at it. He moved back towards the middle of the mat hazarding a glance at who it is that was addressing him.

Setting his bag down John advanced to the mat extending his hand. "I'm John,ya care to try to hitting something that hits back?........ I need to work off a bit a steam,,,care to indulge a bit in the "Manly Art" of quarter staffs?

(Allowing Haemis to respond.)

"We have a nice selection of equipment in the storage next to the boxing gear. " Walking the case John open the door revealing several eight foot staffs and required head and body gear. "Star Fleet requires curtain precautions, but it's pretty much the same as it was back in 1880's England. Head gear and padding."

Showing the man a variety of staffs, "As it is my challenge, I'll let you have first choice of weapon." Stand in brilliant array were gleaming hardwood and bamboo staffs from various planets.

Seems that about once a year I get a bit depressed and start to wallow in self pity. It's easier to just push away than to buckle down.

So if we can find a character that suits Duncan74 then I will see if I can get our randy dandy back it play.

Luckily he has been sleeping so after two months he should be well rested.

Thank you for your support.

Subject: Fashion Week......


The cleric set about to heal the party from the cold. Before pulling out his spell book for study Ulthok took his bedroll.
Cutting section from the bottom he doubled it over and cut slots. "Peri, this may not be the best in winter coats but it may help some to keep out the cold." The mage slipped the garment over the little dragon and secured it closed with a bit of rope. The fey creature smiled up at her companion, "It may not be the height of fashion, but for now it will have to do."

Chuckling to himself Ulthok took the remainder of the roll and fashioned a robe for himself. Slipping off his Elven cloak he dawned the new garment, securing it too with a bit of rope and replaced the cloak over the robe.

"There we are matching...sort of.... Let us rest and study. We must prepare to try that again but hopefully the Cleric spells will protect us some from the dreadful cold."

(O.O.C., Assuming that the party healed, rested and studied. Then the Cleric cast Endure on each member as they prepared to try the door again.)

When the party was ready again Ulthok pulled the gems and placed them in the holes.

(Assuming the door opens and nothing different happens.)
(Assuming the Endure spell is working.)

Pulling his Elven cloak close over his bedroll robe Ulthok lead the party into stairwell. Cautiously but rapidly he moved forward, check for traps and triggers. The party needed to locate the source of the cold and do what they could stop it.

Peri had hung back a bit with Valene and when the cold blast engulfed the room she tried to hide behind the cleric. Dropping to the floor she pulled in her wings and began running in circles to warm herself.

"Not fair", she squeaked, "I don't have a winter coat."

As Valene pulled out her blanket and wrapped it around her Peri trundled up and tried to sneak under it's edge.

When I checked Sirene's spell list I didn't see it in her spell book.

The Endure only does so much as listed for "unprotected".
If we add some "protection" it will reduce the changes or amount of damage.

Once we figure how to stop the cold we can put the clothing in our bag of holding.

Also if the spell gets cancelled the protection will help until spells get cast again.

Subject: Endure Spells..........


So here's my suggestion, since only the clerics can do the Endure spell we need them to prepare and cast the spells on the party before we open the door again.

We need nine spells because it takes one per character, including Peri. Cor and Rayne have eight level one spells each. Roan and Valene have seven.

We should have a second batch ready just in case, so if Cor and Rayne prepare five each and Roan and Valene do four then we will be covered for a bit.

The mages may want to get an extra Wall of Fire to provide heat if needed.

================================
Being a Cleric maybe this would be a good thing for Cor to say in game.

I had really fallen behind in playing John and it wasn't flowing as well as it should so with T_Catt's blessing (sent him PM to ask his approval) the part of Assistant Chief Tactical Officer John Britt Reid will be played by Duncan74.

He is much better at freeform than I have been and he wants back. So "Loverboy John" will once again be on the prowl.

Sirene seemed to be most prepared with wool clothing.

Layer what you can, if we use the endure spell we won't have to be wrapped up like mummies.

As I said we may need to share or even sew up a bit. Even cutting up tents into tunics as an outer layer will hold heat in because of it being dense.

Alyia and Roan will need the least because of their elemental protections.

Once we figure how the stop the cold we can put the clothing in the bag of holding for later.

(Back Post: To Welcome Kriea back to be Valene as Valene.)

The commotion of the appearance of Valene had calmed and the party had turned in for a needed rest. To Ulthok's pleasant surprise he woke to find Valene nestled in his arms. The fears that he might never see her again melted away as he enjoyed the warmth of her body. From deep in his memory a troubadour's song welled up and he softly sang"

"You and I Again
These Days go by
And I wish that I could slow the whole thing down

Have it all back again
Just One more time
Then again maybe we can't
cause I can't escape this feeling
that we've been this way together
You and I

There You are again
I climbed so high
High enough to finally see your side
Shining in the distance
You were tending your own fire
We were biding our time
Both of us waiting for the moment when our backs would come together
You and I

I see how fierce You are
Never this world would drag us down

How serious You are
Standing on Holy Ground

And so Although I know we are only small
In the time We have here
Maybe We have it all

I see how fierce You are
Never this world would drag us down
How serious You are
Standing on Holy Ground

And so Although I know we are only small
In the time We have here
This time we have it all

You and I again
This time, This time"



The mage knew that their future was not secure, but for this moment in time it was good.

( O.O.C, song by James Taylor - You And I Again)

Well if I remember Alyia has knitting that could be used to sew up blankets and bedrolls into outer wear. So check your stuff and see what can be converted into outer wear.

I'll try to make some sort jacket thing for Peri from part of my blanket.

Bedrolls are normally thicker than blankets. Cut some arm holes and they could be like robes with rope belts.

I'd say if you wear armor you'd want to insulate under it too.

If you have any spare stuff it might help someone else.

Subject: Now What........


Pulling the gems back Ulthok nearly stumbled from the cold affecting his limbs. Sounds of the stone grinding let the mage know that his choice had proven correct, the door was closing. But the fierce cold froze the hinges and the door hang open still letting the cold escape. Preparing to bolt from the room Ulthok turned just in time to see Sirene's spell leap forth with a wall of fire. Quickly it thawed the hinges letting the door slam shut cutting off the terrible cold.

As the room warmed Ulthok scanned the party. He found Peri first, she looked not too worse for the ordeal. Her reptile scale and blood resisted the worst of the damage but she still stood there shivering a bit. Next he sought out Valene. There she stood wrapped in her bedroll, resourceful as ever.

The rest seemed to have fared the same as he, though Roan seemed to have done well against the cold for a human.

"Well we seemed to have found the passage but how can we traverse it?.......... We are not dressed for such a cold,,. If we leave this room to search for warmer clothing we may not find it again,, I suggest we rest and heal here. ,.We wrap ourselves as Valene has but the clerics can also use the spells of endure cold on us to enable us to travel that passage,,. We prepare several so if they dispel l we can recast quickly. With luck we will find the source of the cold and stop it,,,,.So any other ideas?"
