Subject: Memorial Day 2019.....

Memorial Day 2019:

Saturday I attended the 20th grave decorating day at Western Reserve National Cemetery to honor and respect the final resting place for many of those that have served in this nation's Armed Forces. As I have said before I am now one of only two people (the last volunteer, the other is an American Legion member that helps organize the event) that have attended every memorial decoration ceremony since the cemetery was opened in 2000. I am blessed to still be able to attend and honor those who have served. This includes my father who had served in WWII and was interred here in 2003.

This year as a thank you to the volenteers a special gold pin was issued to commerate this 20th annual event.

As in the past after the memorial service the group of several hundred volunteers made up of Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and civic groups placed flags on about 40,000 grave sites.

A while back after I had posted I was reminded by some that Memorial Day is to remeber those that died in combat; that Veteren's Day is for honoring all who served and that Armed Forces Day is for those currently active.

I believe that given the chance we owe showing our gratitude to all who serve or served on this National day of recognition, including those of other countries that stand with and by us in times of great need.

I hope many of you will take a moment to remember and say "Thank You" to all those that served.

"Thank You."

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: If you don't have a Monster Manual....

Imps are diminutive creatures of an evil nature who roam the world and act as familiars for lawful evil wizards and priests.

The average imp is a 2' humanoid with leathery, bat-like wings, a barbed tail, and sharp, twisted horns. Its skin is a dark red and its horns and jagged teeth are a gleaming white.

The imp can polymorph itself into two other animal forms. The most commonly encountered alternate forms are those of a large spider, raven, giant rat, or goat. In such forms the imp is physically identical to a normal animal.

Combat: In its natural form, the imp attacks with the wicked stinger on its tail. In addition to inflicting 1-4 points of damage, this stinger injects a powerful poison which is so deadly that those who fail their save versus poison are instantly slain by it. When it is polymorphed, the imp attacks with the natural weaponry of its adopted form, though the goat and raven forms lack damaging attacks.

The imp can use its special magical abilities no matter what its form. All imps are able to detect good, detect magic, or become invisible at will. Once per day they can use a suggestion.

Imps are immune to attacks based on cold, fire, or electricity and resist all other spell attacks as if they were 7 Hit Die creatures. They can be harmed only by silver or magical weapons and are able to regenerate one hit point per melee round.

Habitat/Society: Imps are beings of a very evil nature who originate on the darkest of evil planes. Their main purpose on the Prime Material plane is to spread evil by assisting lawful evil wizards and priests. When such a person is judged worthy of an imp's service, the imp comes in answer to a find familiar spell.

Once they have contacted their new ``master``, imps begin at once to take control of his actions. Although imps maintain the illusion that the summoner is in charge, the actual relationship is closer to that of a workman (the imp) and his tools (the master).

Although an imp's body can be destroyed on the Prime Material plane, it is not so easily slain. When its physical form is lost, its corrupt spirit instantly returns to its home plane where it is reformed and, after a time, returned to our world to resume its work.

While they are technically in the service of their master, imps retain a basic independence and ambition to become more powerful someday. They may acquire treasure from those they slay, and will often pilfer valuables encountered during their travels.

The imp confers some of its powers upon its master. A telepathic link connects the two whenever they are within one mile of each other. This enables the master to receive all of the imp's sensory impressions, including its infravision. The master also gains the imp's inherent 25% magical resistance and is able to regenerate just as the imp does. If the imp is within telepathic range, the master acts as if he were one level higher than he actually is. Conversely, if the imp is more than a mile away, the master acts as if he were one level of ability below his actual rank. If the imp is killed, the master instantly drops by four levels, though these can be regained in the usual manner.

Ecology: Imps are the errand boys of the powerful evil beings who command the darkest planes. They often act as emissaries and agents, but their primary task is to enhance the spread of evil in our world.

Subject: Take out the Imp quickly.....

Well I'd say all out attack on the imp in imp form, kill it quick. That tail stinger is deadly poison if you fail your saving throw. Silver and magic weapons, also it can heal one damage point per round. Pin coushon that bugger with + arrows and slice and dice it with + swords and throwing + axes. If you don't have +1 or better magic arrows  don't even waste them. The others attack as giant rats so it bites and claws, so you follow up on them next. All the little rats should flee once the imps are dead.

BTW hot and cold magic spells don't effect them.

Subject: BTW.....

Also the action of a character can negate your action. Say two characters attack the same enemy, if the first one killed it then the second one's action had no effect. It is all chance and the roll of the dice.

Also if the enemy has first inituitive it could change things, say it vanished then niether attacker stand a good chance of hitting it.

It just turned invisible and didn't move then shots into the space where it was last seem might hit, again it is all in the rolls.

so post what you feel your character would do and hope for a good roll.

Subject: POV and Order of combat....

These combat sequences happen quickly. Each character is reacting pretty much at the same time as it is their "point of view". We don't have to wait for other to post to determine our action but we can. As for the sequence that thing really happen well that is where Tann comes in. He will roll intuitive for all characters and enemies then roll how the posted action worked. Read what Tann post and work off of that. In the last round you can figure Intuitive from his post, The rats acted first by swarming the guards, Cor acted next with the snakes, Arandur was next by trying to talk to the rats which didn't work. Rayden was next and shouted the warning of the big rats. Lothor was next hearing the warning shot the middle big rat, made a good hit and exposed it as an Imp. Last to act are the big rats. The one Lothor hit which then vanished and the other two two moving apart . So to me that is your combat sequence.

Small rats
Big Rats
Now if the Bear is written to attack then Tann will role intuitive for it and insert it in the order.

Now each combat round will follow this order.

Don't confuse posting order with combat order.

Does this help?

Subject: Clarify.....

Silentone, is your character attaching the giant to her left or right? Is Brutus attacking the same rat?

If Brutus attacks first he could got shot by mistake. Hope for a good dice roll.

Clarity in describing the battle helps all writers as if they see through their character's eyes and react accordingly. Few details leave things up the Tann to interpreter and it may not be as we envision in our mind when we write our section.

Subject: Rolls..........

You have to remember that Tann rolls for your spell. You could get a 20 for a critical hit or down to a 1 for a critical fail. A great spell on a critical fail is about the same a no spell at all or worse, it could backlash. also a critical hit of 20 on poor spell could have great results.

We just play and hope for the best.

In a table top game my Gnome cleric once came through a secret door into a dinning area to find bunch of Goblins at a table eating. He had intuitive on the encounter and "surprise" by coming through a secret door. He attacked by using his his throwing hammer at the nearest Goblin as he had "surprise" on them. Well that attack rolled a critical fail 1. The DM said the hammer flew out of his hand backwards hitting the wall and knocking down a candle and all the Goblin looked up at him. But because of "Surprise" he still had intuitive and got a second attack (luckily for him). So I had him cast Entangle on the goblins sitting around the table so the chair lashing would bind them to the chairs. Well an entangle spell in an outdoor spell to be used on living plants. I was new to gaming and really had not thought of that so the likelihood of the spell working was very poor. But I rolled a 20 critical hit. The DM said the chairs had been recently been repaired so the binding were still a bit green and they reacted to the spell binding the creatures to the chairs. My Gnome then proceeded to wipe them out.

So you never know, I rolled a crit fail and then a crit hit in successive roll......what great game....

Subject: Another.............

Ulthok watched in anticipation as Sirene drew upon her ancient magic. As the power flowed the Halfling saw concern cross the face of Elven Sorceress.

"My apologies Ulthok but I have not the strength to draw her from the amulet."
Her gaze on the amulet a tear building in her eye,,.

A great pain grew in Ulthok's chest as his heart once more began to break. There were very few that touched the mage as he had protected himself from such involvements. This pain was one of the reasons. As he was resolving himself to the loss a small voice, not unlike that of Peri's only with a male tenor speaking in Elven, came from behind them.

"Your right lady Elf, you have not the strength to draw her from her captivity, within the stone of the amulet."

Startled both Ulthok and Sirene quickly looked up to find a new presence had entered the clearing, a mature looking Faery Dragon. His coloring of blue and green, his butterfly wings the color of light blue, placed him as old in the ages of the small dragons. Landing by her body the male faery dragon stood silently as if pondering some life changing choice.

"I was desperate to find the Princess and bring her home alive and well after she flew away and I have searched for these past years since she left the safety of our home. Though I looked everywhere, I now know why she was so hard to find."

The creature turned to look at Ulthok,"She used you halfling, to hide, by bonding with you as her companion, she hide herself from us."

Turning back to look at Peri's lifeless body."The magic of this amulet to us is like a prison, where to you it holds your psyche, or what you call your soul, to us it holds our life essence until such time as its magic destroys it. Your bond with her clearly was very strong for the amulet to even take her, mistaking her essence for your soul."

Standing silent yet again for what seemed like ages, Sirene and Uthlok remaining quiet respecting his moment. A deep sigh came from him as he turned to face Sirene.

"She is not lost forever, she can be saved, but it will take a choice from you Elvin Enchantress. For her to be released from the amulet will take both of our magics for neither of us alone is strong enough. However this will in the same way as the halfling and the princess, leave you bonded to me as my companion until one or both of us is dead. So Elf will you bond with me and become my companion as Princess Peri is with the halfling?",,,.

Once again there was a sight hope in his heart but he knew this was not an simple thing. What the Faery proposed would come with a cost, Ulthok feared it would be a much greater cost than a mire 168 silver pieces.

Siréne met the eyes of the fey dragon with her own fey gaze, "It is not an insignificant thing you ask, for I, like you, am not of the mortal world. If you are to bond to me, then know you must swear yourself to the ancient path and to the will of the Goddess before all others. Swear to this and we will be bound, in this world and in faery for time unending."

Pausing a moment, the witch solemnly raised her hand, palm facing the dragonette, "Do you swear? Are we bound?"

Ulthok winced, the fey do not give and take freely, would this new creature give up his soul to Sirene's Goddess to save Peri? If he would then Ulthok must learn what would drive him so.

Making his way to Ulthok's door, Cor knocked. "Ulthok lad, tis Cor. I came ta see about raising your wee beastie Peri. Tis time for her to once more live and breath." Cor waited for an answer.

Ulthok and Valene had been so intent of the arrangement with Sirene to heal Peri and the need for the mage studying to have two Teleport spells prepared that Ulthok had not informed his friend Lord Cor of the news of Peri. Opening the door the Halfling grabbed Cor by the shoulders and spoke excidedly. "Oh Cor ..Peri is not dead..well she is dead ..but she's not dead dead, just sort of dead." The Halfling saw the skock and confussion on the Dwarv's face. "Well what I mean is that Allanan discovered that because of the unusual bond between Peri and me..I guess it was becuse I messed up the Find Familiar spell and nearly died and it altered the spell and bond...but what it also did was let Peri share my Amulet of Life  protection....she it here Cor" Ulthok holds out the amulet, glowing faintly "...she just needs to be healed to return, like me...well sort of.." Ulthok plunged on, "Allanan says that because Peri is a magical fey creature the the heal to bring her out of the amulte needs to be Fey Magic....Sirene agreed to do the heal but we must prepare and then travel to a special location....we must do it this evening and have all ready at the magical time between day and night. ....isn't that great....Valene and I will be leaving soon so that we are prepared when the moment comes."

Ulthok could see the dazed look in Cor's eyes, "I thank you friend for preparing to heal our little fairie dragon, but all is under way...I can teleport myself, Valene and Sirene to the location but that is all I are welcome to come.. I think...we are going to the edge of the Elven lands.... where Sirene's power would the strongest....if you wished to go I think you would be welcome..but maybe check with Sirene. But as I said my magic will likely only let me take the three of us."  With that Ulthok hugged his friend and sliped back into his room closing the door.


(O. O.C.....This will be more clear when Nimu and I get our posts up.)

Now there are still a couple ogf things to complete before we head out on our next adventure.

Ulthok really needs to bring Peri back. That is my next thing, I've asked Nimu to help co-write that portion.

I don't think you need to change your post. You pose it as a question and if Majestic didn't know of Talca I would guess Tann will address that in his post.

I was just trying to help fill in the blank for you. From the party I'd say Valene would know Majestic best seeing that they were prisoners together in the flying castle. but that was when Valene a NPC played by Tann and none of the details of their time together has been told.

Subject: Not Seen The Dragon Queen in Dragon Form....

Well we don't really know about the powers of the Dragon Queen. We have never seen her in Dragon form. Allanan is the only one that would know. So the only way I can think of to find out is to have your character roll play and talk to Allanan about it. You could also talk to Majestic.

Introduce yourself and just ask.
Ok just read your post. I don't believe Majestic knows Talca was with the party unless something he did after the party returned to their present would have been significant enough for the story to get to her. He would have had to tell the story of what happened. and those stories may have brought the Goddess after him.

Allanan knows Talca, but he hasn't had time to tell Majestic about him.

Subject: Ulthok............

Ulthok watch as Valene addressed the Dragon Queen. This was the first he had hear of the magic scales Valene had carried. It made him wonder if the one she now held out might still be of value to the party.

It was then that he realized that he too still had a magic item thast princple use had been fulfilled.
Making his way to Allanan the halfling pulled from his pouch a clear gem.

"Pardon me Sir but now that we have returned this gem you gave me to track the party so you could find us is no longer of value for that purpose. Doyou wish it returned or shall I keep it for future use?"

Ulthok waited Allanan's reply although returning a gem was a bit against his nature.

Subject: Valene.............

Found that Valene still carried a magic dragon's scale from Majestic. Not sure how it would be useful to Valene so writing to have try to return it. If Majestic wants Valene to keep it we will need to figure out how it can help Valene. Is it a one time use or does it rediate magic to enhance Valene's casting. It may have several one time uses.


I found this in the back story on page 254 were Astrid wrote about how Valene rejoined the partyin the tower.


For those interested, Majestic first appeared in the story on page 237. This was just before Allanan sent us to the islands to find the tower.

Also found that Allanan had given Ulthok a magic clear gem so he could find them. Ulthok still has it so I posted him asking Allanan if he wants it back.
