So this time after death Ulthok has no spells, right?

Does Ulthok know that he has no spells ready?

Are we moving the figure inside the octagon or are we just positioning the octagon?

Schnoz, your solution looks the same as what we had.
I think the whale is the one that is wrong in our first attempt.

Well then the next thing I think I see is that the whale is moving quarter turns, not just flat to flat. There seems to be some line up on the corners. So if you split the flats into two's then we got 16 positions and I count the moves as 5, 7, 7.

So the next is what?


It could be back down the 5 or up to 9. Odd number counts seem to be the move.

Is the missing side line on the Eel picture from your cut and paste or is it actually part of the disc? Can the Eel be turned inside the disc so the the missing side line would have been to the right as it shows in the other views?

Other than that I am at loss.

Subject: A Hard Choice..........


A great bell clanged and then everything went black. There was not pain, no anything. Disoriented the mage felt confused but there was something slightly familiar. Then Ulthok recognized the sensation, he had felt it once before when the fire ball had consumed his unprotected ooze form in Drow Mountain. His was body dead,again. The amulet he wore had again saved his spirit as some force had ripped life from his physical form.

Other than his own thoughts the only other thing he was aware of was the touch of spirit to Peri. As he came to grips with his situation he wondered how long he had been there. Time had no measure. His memories told him that this was only a temporary haven and if he body was not healed he would slip away forever.

In the peaceful calm he recalled another gentle ballad:

Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine

Quiet thought come floating down
And settle softly to the ground
Like golden autumn leaves around my feet
I touched them and they burst apart with sweet memories

Sweet memories
Of holding hands and red bouquets
And twilight trimmed in purple haze
And laughing eyes and simple ways
And quiet nights and gentle days with you

Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine

Memories, memories, sweet memories


As the song floated away a tiny light began to appear, as that of an early dawn after a dark moonless night. The light grew steadily until it became a great blinding flash.


Ulthok gasped and grabbed his chest as air rushed in to fill his lungs. Opening his eyes the images of a familiar Elven beauty was in a meditative pose kneeled next to him. A sweet taste was upon his lips and warmth filled body.

Ulthok could only guess that the Enchantress had used her healing arts to save him. Feeling the strength returning the Halfling raised himself up to his elbows and then sat upright on the ground. Peri fluttered in to place a kiss on his cheek and then flew to Sirene to place a kiss on her cheek. This confirmed to Ulthok that Sirene had healed him and saved his life.


Glancing around to the party gathered around, "Well that didn't go as well as we hoped."


Seeing the puzzle was gone and the door had turned to it bare exterior he knew that they needed to try again. "Well if you can save me each time then perhaps we will find the correct solution."


Rising up the mage walked back the door and again stuck his finger hole. But this time nothing happened. There was no pick of pain to draw blood and no change in the door.

Withdrawing his finger he turned to the party, "It appears the door will no longer respond to me. I fear it requires a new life to test and I cannot protect another with my Amulet, for as long as I live it is attuned to me and will not serve another,. It is now a hard choice of who next to attempt the door's challenge knowing that failure means death."

Subject: Yeah But................


His mind and spirit were not dead, only his body so all of his memories, including his spell should still be in tact.


Only if you determine that it is like a battery discharging that he lost the power of the spells, such as when a spell in used. Then he would need to reread the spells to again recharge the power of their magic in him.

Is this a known fact? I don't remember going through it the last time.

Subject: The Kiss Of Life...........


Peri:


The Fey creature watched as her companion did the task that he was most trained to do, search for traps and gain access to locked areas. She also knew his nature and that as skilled as he was his curiosity could lead him astray. So when he stuck his finger in the small hole and let out with a "Buggers" she knew he'd set something in action. The bit of blood from the prick did not seem too threatening but she figured they were dealing with a magic item as the panels on the door changed to reveal a puzzle.


She had to hold herself from giggling when Ulthok brandishing the bloody finger tip and said, I found the lock."


Ulthok quickly studied the puzzle and agreed with Cor's solution. Then began to place the discs. Click, the first disc placed, click the second disc placed, click the third disc placed. A small pause before the forth disc was placed CLICK With that click sounding as loud as if a church bell had been rung only once, Ulthok fell from the grasp of Sirene's hand to the ground dead. For a moment the shelf and disc's remained as they were, then the metal moved and the shelve and its disc's vanished. Replaced by a finger sized hole once more.


Peri briefly was seized with panic, but she could still feel the connection of her spirit to his and knew that his life force was protected within the amulet he had told her about.

Cor remembered too. "The lad is dead. But dead is but a setback. We should have him up and about in naught but a few minutes."


Squeaking out, "Heal his body, his magic thingy will bring him back, please heal my Ulthok,." Peri was nearly in tears.

Then Sirene who had been kneeling beside Ulthok's small body, laid her hand upon his cheek. With a deep breath, Siréne opened herself to the life giving power of the Great Mother Goddess and let it flow through her. Leaning in, she brushed her lips upon his and breathed the spell into him. She sat back up and bowed her head waiting for the healing magic to take hold.

Peri watched and knew Ulthok would have treasured the kiss. Before he had met Valene the Halfing mage was smitten with the Enchantress. He had told her of the last time he had died was in an attempt to reach Sirene in her distress. He knew fey lady was beyond his station but still she had gained a special place in his heart.

Peri waited with the rest for her companion to return to her.

I read back to page 147 where Ulthok was last healed from death. Conall cast the healing.

�Come on, old friend it is time to return to your body for we have need of you and your magics,� Conall murmured as he knelt beside the body of his fallen friend. The paladin placed his hands upon the still chest of the Halfling and closed his eyes in prayer. ((OOC: I�ll cast Heal Moderate Wounds and if that�s not enough to get him back on his feet I�ll go ahead and use my cure light wounds spell for the day also.))


Posted on 2011-05-26 at 14:56:19.

But I would guess that to save game time we didn't press to much to post more. If Ulthok is dead then that is zero HP and needs full healing.

The Amulet has unlimited life savings.

Amulet of Life Protection: This pendant or brooch device serves as protection for the psyche. The
wearer is protected from the magic jar spell or any similar mental attack that would usurp control of the
wearer's body. If the wearer is slain, the psyche enters the amulet and is protected for seven full days.
Thereafter, it departs to the plane of its alignment. If the amulet is destroyed during the seven days, the
psyche is utterly and irrevocably annihilated.



Sigh......

Well that went well. So I guess that wasn't the correct sequence.

Sirene would know about Ulthok's Amulet of Life Protection.
She was there in Drow Mountain when he was killed by a fire ball, healed and brought back. Cor and Rayne would remember too.

Heal his body and his spirit returns and he is once more in the land of the living.

Topic: Review of 5e
Subject: Something New............


I may have a new twist on reporting on 5.0 play.

If I can get my gear together we are going to try to play live online.

Going to try "Roll 20" to play a 5.0 game. Our DM is in California and his sons are here. He will DM the game from there.

The thought is to play twice a month for 3 hours. Shorter bites more often. On the 17th we will try out the setup for the Roll 20. Then try to play around the 23rd.

So I'll try to report on both the 5.0 game and how well the live online play works.

I still have to figure out the online stuff so this will be most interesting.

Stay Tuned!!!

Ulthok made his way gingerly across the space from the party to the doors. Spring traps or pit traps could be buried in the ground to catch those that wondered too closely to the tower.

As Lothor followed the small mage warned, "Step where I step.. you will know if I make a mistake."

In short order Ulthok had cleared the span and began analyzing the door. The door had no knobs or handles. Then hinges were such that they could not be accessed. Ulthok search for a key panel or something that would activate the door from the inside. The only thing found was a small hole.

Ulthok examined as best he could. There didn't appear to be anything obvious as a trap. Experience had taught him caution but curiosity got the better of him. Slowly he probed the hole with his finger feeling for latch or trigger. Then as if the door had been waiting something pierced his finger tip.

"Buggers!!!"


Quickly Ulthok withdrew his finger; a small trail of blood was left inside. As if fed by the blood the door changed slightly revealing a puzzle panel. Seeing the change Ulthok sheepishly smiled at the party.

"I found the lock."

Cor had stepped forward and upon seeing the puzzle, "Here is my input on the code. Goldfish moved 6 spaces counter clockwise (cc) on each row. Crab faces straight down as it moves 1 space cc each row. Whale faces left as it moves 3 spaces cc each row. Eel faces left as it moves 5 spaces cc each row."


Roan concurred, "Hmm, yes, I agree,,,..Ulthok, this place concerns me. Your finger,.The moment you feel dizzy, or sick, or anything. Let me know. I do not trust that what you received is a simple pinprick."


The mage suspected that if his blood activated the puzzle then it was likely magic or a curse linked to it and him. He could only hope that Cor's solution would open the door and complete the spell.

"Go ahead, someone place the discs and see if what happens."

Looking back at Rayne, "You may have been right..."

It would have depended on how it was presented. It may have taken a couple of more posts. I think I would have had him probe first with some sort of tool of stick. If it had stuck on something he would been very careful, but most likely would have still probed.

He would ask Lothor to do it because his finger is longer...lol.

Now if is important to the plot just say so and we'll play the worried side of bleeding.

But I'd guess Ulthok's blood may foil some of the evil magic by have blood of a creature that didn't exist yet in this time.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Not too Worried....


I am not worried about the prick having an affect on Ulthok. My stand is that Tann said Ulthok stuck his finger in and then got pricked and drew blood. It was not my choice but his, so he would not have ill effects on a character for the DM's action. If I had posted that he stuck his finger in then it would be my action and consequences.

So I will move forward without worry of poison or bad magic due to Ulthok's blood on the probe in the hole.
