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


Ulthok has the spell Shatter ready. I think it wouldn't usually work gainst block ice but in this magic enhanced area it might have the strength to bust up the ice. We could then move the chunks out of the way. Ulthok would target the spell in the space between to door way and the well. I would think we could set up a wall of force between us and the ice in case of blow back up the hall.

The shatter spell is a sound-based attack that affects nonmagical objects of crystal, glass, ceramic, or porcelain, such as vials, bottles, flasks, jugs, windows, mirrors, etc. All such objects within a 3-foot radius of the center of the spell effect are smashed into dozens of pieces by the spell. Objects weighing more than one pound per level of the caster are not affected, but all other objects of the appropriate composition must save vs. crushing blow or be shattered. Alternatively, the spell can be focused against a single item of up to 10 pounds per caster level. Crystalline creatures usually suffer 1d6 points of damage per caster level to a maximum of 6d6, with a saving throw vs. spell for half damage.

Just thinking outside the box.

It seemed to me there would be a wi-fi port in a lot of places. So I thought maybe merchants might have special access.

Subject: Miss The Mist.......


Ody listened as Max complained about being naked and remember the time the fighter had tried to drink a barrel of Old Froth-n-Slosh. A small Halfling mage had convinced him that he could turn Max's clothes into magic armor. Piece by piece he turned Max's clothing invisible. By the time Max was sober enough to realize what had happened the mage was long gone. So as the shaman entered the passage he called out, "Maybe a tankard of Ale would make the mist disappear?"

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: For The Core.............


Roan and Lothor showed their knowledge of survival by Their interest in items that had belonged to Barreel. There is no dishonor in using the items from a fallen comrade to benefit the remaining party. So with the armor and hammers going with Roan and the rope, 3 Torches, Flint & Steel and Whetstone, ring, boots going to Lothor Ulthok sheathed sharp heads with the leather pack placing the Battleaxe and the healing powder, potion and elixir in the bag of holding.

While the mage was distracted stowing the gear he barely heard Weaver comment. "Ulthok, Everyone, I know we all fear for Valene, but we have a mission. Listen closely, can you not still hear the sound, feel the pounding of the ballista still firing upon the fortress below? We need to think of the bigger reality, that we are very likely the only team left. Put emotion aside and think, if we fail, this flying heap of githyanki s***, with or without its queen, will destroy Craggen Core. The vast army of evil at the gates will rush through conquering Trilogy, leaving it a barren wasteland full of the dead. Is Valene and this Dragon Queen really worth the cost of that? I know she means the world to you so as your friend I will seek her out while you continue the mission, as you of all of us, knows best what lies ahead."

In the silent pause the mage indeed heard ballista's again, the loss of the Lich did not disperse the enemy.

Ulthok had come understand that there was wisdom and depth to this crazy bard that few would see. The words struck hard. The truth in that his mission was to stop this flying weapon. So as the Ranger/Bard gathered his gear and moved back out into the hallway Ulthok resolved to fulfill his duty to the people of Craggen Core and those that given their last measure in the quest. The mage then explained to the party about the huge gem in the room down the hall. He told them of how its power must be so strong that it floods into the hall and enhanced his magic items and spells. Down that hall was what they sought but to destroy it may seal their doom for there may be no escape from these bowels of the castle before it crashed to the ground.

Passing out the beard and meat that was carried by Dwarven Warrior, "Besides healing our wounds we need to regain our strength." He passed the skin of Ale. It returned to him and he took a deep draught. When the party had finished he placed the skin with the remains and in as deep a voice as he could create Ulthok left Barreel with his final lament.

We sing the song
Of battles won
Of warriors strong
When duty's done
Who'll lift their ales and clammor HO!
Shout louder lads
***DEATH FROM BELOW***


Slipping the magic gem from Barreel's pocket into his the small thief then lead them into hall to gem room. Ulthok hoped this would now give him three chances to destroy the power.

(O.O.C., Ulthok now has his gem, Amara's gem and Barreel's gem.)(Update: If Roan doesn't take the spiked armor then Ulthok will decide to leave it behind. It is too difficult to pad to keep it for damaging the bag of holding.)

Subject: Let The Party Begin............


"Party clothes,? Did I really say party clothes. I don't even have anything fancy." Jon rolled his eye as he wondered what he was going to do, then he saw Steph smile and knew she had him covered. Living with her in her villa had required him to dress for dinner and met some of her more serious guests. That thought also opened an opportunity. "Stephanie, would you and Catie see if you have something to fit Angela?..... Then would you take JC and get him fitted? You can use my card too if it can't be done for 100 credits. If you made me look good then you can at least make him presentable."

Jon turned to Angela and saw the anxiety on face. Giving her a normal job should bring her back around. "Angela, as payload specialist you'll need to get some of those bags back to Miss Lillianna's room. Then let Stephanie help get you ready to join us on board. I have a feeling I am going to need your talents helping me handling things other than bags."

Jon was right, Stephanie had put some dress clothes in his closet, so by the time he dressed and back to the cargo bay the others were straggling in. Even in simple outfits Stephanie, Catie and Angela looked stunning; JC still needed work. Before they left the ship Jon made sure they each carried a personal comm. unit, they'd need to stay in touch with each other and Destiny. He told them if they were asked about them to say they were to be sure Miss Lillianna was safe.

Something was going to happen and it wasn't just the wedding. Jon and the crew needed to be ready.

With that the small party headed out to find a mens clothing shop for JC.

The kid hadn't had much interest in the conversation until he heard the offer for a five star noodle house. The Whistle something bar and grill hadn't held much interest, but a five star noodle house was something he understood. Even if Ma did a great job trying to keep things interesting in the black by making do with rehydrated food stuffs and protein paste, a real noodle house was a place he could enjoy.

His heart dropped a bit when he heard Wyatt," Actually,Stickin' 'round a bit might provide me an' mine with some time t' line up our next set o' fares. ..An' while I appreciate yer offer of hospitality, it ain't necessary. Thank you kindly all the same. You can drop a wave our way when it's safe t' take Havelock home. 'Til then, I don't plan on muckin' about much so you can find us back at our ship if'n ya need us."

When they were back in the hall and he was strapping his iron back on he sheepish let slip, "That noodle house might be a good place to checkout."

Subject: Don't Push The Button........


Team had survived the strange maze of rooms. It was a lucky chance diving into that pool that led to the Red Dog Inn. It was luckier still that the Wizard had left funds and instructions to care for whoever stepped through the door. The party took room and stayed at the Inn to weather the winter.

Dudley filled the winter months with devotions to Shinara, she had watched over him and guided them safely. He would spread the word of her to all; he started to wonder why folks seemed cross the street when walked about Portua.

Then he filled the remaining time watching Wimbley play with his shiny ball. Each time Wimbley changed the ball to a different weapon Dudley would smile, applaud and then pick up his staff and point to the button.

As the winter started to melt away Wimbley became more restless and more enamored with Dudley's magic treasure. The day finally came when the wonderlust was more then Wimbley could resist and he told the party he was moving on. Before the Cidal mage left Dudley brought out the Wand of Many Wonders, showed Wimbley the button and said, "Wanna trade?"

As Dudley sat in the Red Dog Inn he held the shiny ball and practiced changing its shape. He was too entranced with his new wonder to go out to see what the ruckus up the street was all about.

Subject: Off We Go............


It was a long six hour flight in a noisy and cramped space. The converted C-47 Dakota crammed every spare inch with fuel storage to enable the plane to make the round trip. The smell of the high octane petrol was just next to nauseating. Wearing a full pack and chute basically Doc couldn't move, so he made the best of it kept cat napping through the flight. When the jump master crawled over the installations to make his way to the door the jostling woke Jake. The time it took the jump master to prepare the supply chute and check the static line allowed Doc to wake.
As they approached the target the team stood and hocked up. Doc had made arrangements with Captain to be last man out. This gave him the chance to watch where and how each member landed. Experience taught him he tell if someone landed hard and needed him. The supply chute usually came after him and he get to it quickly too.

The pilot gave the green light and the jump master started ushering the team out the door. When Doc's turn came he paused in the door remembering members no longer with them, before jumping out Doc touched the Red Dragon patch of Team YeOlde as his silent salute.

The sand gave more under his boots than hard dirt would, but a bend of the knees made for smooth landing. Quickly burying the chute Doc made his way the supply chute. The chute had collapsed nicely and he didn't have to chase it down. Detaching the bundle he rolled it open and checked everything. As the team arrived he passed out the ammo and supplies. Star stepped up and he handed her the pump action shotgun.

Taking the double barrel he opened the action the slid in a salt shell into each barrel, snapped it closed and slid it securely through straps of his pack. With everything secure and stowed the team followed McGuiness made their way toward their assignment.

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


Originally the first player of Lothor had him very leary of magic. Giving him the rabbit's foot was his first real magic item and he didn't know until later when we told him how to use it. He has been with us long enough now to see that magic is not inherently bad and he may be ready to accept items to enable him to be better as a warrior to defend his friends.

So a RP of asking how they work and then desiding to try them would be in character.

As for Barreel's body, well no one really wants to leave him but with no one to play him there is little reason to take his body with us. To place him with the beheaded fighters would put many of the bodies in one place so they can be recovered from the rubble. Or figure the rubble will be their honored mass tomb.

Ulthok has an amulet of life protection so if he dies his life essence goes into it. By healing his body wounds his spirit can return without a raise from the dead spell.

We can move Barreel to the room of the dead as ceremonial spirit guard. Would this be acceptable to the group?

He has 2 skins of ale, we leave one on him and pass the other around the party as toast to his courage.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Finish The Mission..............


Ulthok realized he'd spoke aloud, fatigue was taking its toll. A slight blush crossed his cheek, "I'm sorry I was just thinking out loud. I now believe I know how to destroy the magic that makes the castle fly and it is down that hall. But we need to find the Dragon Queen first. Her safe return may help turn the tide of the war, this castle means little now that the Lich is gone. So let's finish here and go complete our mission. "

As the party gathered the items from their search the mage sorted them and stored them in the bag of holding.

"These swords are from the Githyanki and it is known they will return to hunt them down. I say break them and leave them behind and if they won't break we should still leave them. They are a beacon directly to us."

The items gathered from their fallen comrade were brought also, "We know items from our singing friend and if any of you can use the ring of free action or his mighty weapons it will keep Barreel in the fight, if only in our hearts. These potions will be put to good use."

Gesturing toward the Dwarv's remains, "Odin has taken his son home and that shell is no longer the warrior that saved us in the map room. If we had the time he might be able to be raised but for now we bid him goodbye."

Then looking back to the hall, "Peri, it is safe for you, come join me." When the little creature had join him he opened one of the potions, "Here my friend drink some of this and gain your strength" two thirds of the potion was consumed. Looking down he saw Niamedris and gives the cat the last. , "Now let's all heal as best we can and go find the White Lady.... Rayne can you heal Lord Cor?" Then pausing he spoke to the enchantress, " Sirene, your magic is stronger than mine, would you consider carrying the witches eye?"

O.O.C. (According to the character sheet this could cure everyone.
Cor and Roan need the most healing. One Heal to Cor from Rayne and then he can return the favor to Rayne with two cure serious to bring her to full. Sirene has two heal spells left so one on Roan would be good. Cor doing a cure crit on Lothor brings him to one short of fullly healed. One cure crit from Sirene and lay on hands from Cor would fix Weaver. Sirene casting one cure serious on herself and Cor laying on hands tops her off. Cor could then make the rounds of laying on hand and top off Aliya, Ulthok and Lothor. That would get everyone to full.)(The last third of the healing potion should bring the cat back to full health. Ulthok and the cat have a teasing relationship so it is natural he would help the cat. See the story line from the magic mountain and trying to enter the castle there.)

Subject: *********


Good questions! We need to think a bit.
Saving the Dragon Queen is of more benefit to the war then just crashing the castle. Remember if we save her then she can bring the Good Dragons to help fight the millions of baddies attacking Core.

So at least Ulthok knows where the gem is to get he party back to it and he just mentioned the gem, not explain all the magic he saw.

I don't trust the eye. Do we destroy it?

The fly potions won't help if we are inside the stone castle. We would need to be able to escape to the sky.

Back at the giant's cave Cor cast a spell that let the mages study and get a spell. Does anyone remember how long that took?

Look back at the character sheets to see who has healing left.

If we aren't planning on raising Barreel then we should just respectfully leave him in Odin's hand.

BTW, I'll be out of town the next couple and only be able to follow on my phone. I'll catch up Thursday.

In game ulthok mentioned the iced room with the big gem, but hasn't said anything more. He has not suggested it was the magic that make the castle fly. There still needs to be brought out.

Before we wreck the castle we need to figure out how to escape. Teleporting or flying or whatever. For the most part this was a oneway trip. Escaping after destroying the magic that made the castle fly had never really been planned. But with the Lich Queen gone we have options, maybe.
