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

Ulthok lead the party to the doors, checking quickly for traps but found the doors safe and not locked. As he opened them Barreel rushed past.

There were no enemies but just a hall of evil worship. The mage continued to lead the party on to next room. Here they found dinning hall. A quick check of the lauder found edible food and the party added to their stores, not knowing when next they might find supplies. The mage found a small store of fresh apples, a treat for his sad familiar. Polishing up one the fruit to bright shining red he presented it to Peri.

At first the little dragonet giggled with glee, but then a sadness passed over her. Clutching the apple Peri fluttered over to the druid Sirene. Landing at her feet the fey creature bowed her head and placed the apple before the her. Lifting the hem of the sorceress’s robe Peri kissed it gently then looked up into Sirene’s deep water blue eyes. In her best formal elvish, “Sirène Talà Melete …Awen en amin, amin hiraetha!” (My lady,I'm sorry.) Peri then flew back to Ulthok’s shoulder to nuzzle softly into his neck, a small tear tracing down her cheek.

Ulthok then gathered a few more items and made sure the water pouches were filled. There was no telling when the might find supplies again. Pressing on he lead the group to the next room.

Here they found a lavish bedroom of fine furnishings. The mage was ready to leave when Barreel pointed out the four chests against the wall. Ulthok wasn’t sure what gain could be had from the content of the chests, but Barreel’s words.” Ulthok, open these so we can move on quickly." just peaked his natural curiosity. The thief in him focused his attention as his looked for traps and then picked each lock. With the locks removed he opened each chest for inspection.

Subject: Guns............

Tann had mentioned to me about collecting gun and I didn't think about too much. But it would be better if he stashed them in the hilly stuffy wuffy and not in Asher room. Beside I don't remember giving Wolf the codes or secret hidie places.

Asher would like to resupply his little toy bin, as much as he had it ready didn't slow down the bad guys as much as it should have.

Asher should have stuff he can pull out when needed to defend the crew, even if the Captian doesn't know he has it, that's his job. I'd say Lt. V would look the other way for him or even help him with some toys in exchange for a "Good Workout"! I would to go so far as to say that Col. Sanders will have our ship on his list of less likely suspects when it comes to real criminal activity and maybe even an ally for curtain events. Being Marshall in the rim ain't easy and trust is hard earned.

As for Wolfy Tann might like an upgrade weapons but as for in character I'd think he'd get more like Grace and arm our systems with stuff plundered from the wreckage or from "Generous" saved passenger. As Asher protects the crew and Wolf would protect Roc. After all we need parts to get flying again and he is the one to find them now that John is gone.

Dudley agreed about leaving the lizard men and moving along quickly. "If we follow our last path the next room is the fight room. Luckily we know that and won't be surprised by an attack. Then it's a nice bath and then a warm meal....Oh that part sound good." Dudley made for the stairs to the portal of the war room.

Subject: Crew Meeting...........

MMV are you having Grace tell about Asente, Blue Sun and her dad? I'd say you posting up next to fill in additional info to the crew and then we all quick post thoughts to outline a plan and then take it to the others.

Tann, you can have JC give his feeling now what Asente told him.

Asente is a wildcard, she is out for herself or Blue Sun. That puts us in the cross fire of three Titans of power. If we try to use her to discredit Templeton and the Baron. Templeton's issues with the Companion's Guide could help. If Asente has already been messing around with the Baron then her flirting with Steele could create some diversions.

I don't like counting on Asente but if the prize is big enough for her then it could work, maybe.

Barreel has indicated that Ulthok should open the chests and usually the thief in him would be hopping to it. But do we need to search the chests? Ulthok likes loot, but do any of you think we might find something that will help us? Should we risk setting off a trap or an alarm?

Subject: Welcome Newbie..............

Hello......... Thought I'd pop in here and add the Ody welcome.

A really good place to start here is “Pit F(r)iend's epic guide to getting started for newbies.”on the Home page. That will help you figure out how to navigate the halls of the Inn.

To meet folk in real time pop into the DragonChat where I act as current resident bar tender. We offer our very own "Good Old Froth-n-Slosh", the stale pale ale with the foam on the bottom.

Just grab a mug off the mantel and draw a cold frosty one.

My assistant Igor is usually lurking around if I'm not there.

He never says anything, must have something to do with having his tongue cut out by his last boss, that nasty bartender over at the Orc Bar & Grill.

I'll have him put out a plate of "Lady Fingers" in your honor.

Reminds me we need to have another "Ladies Night" and restock.

Anyway the Posting Games are great place to get to know folks and of course the DragonChat is our favorite lounge.

So lurk or play, welcome to the Inn!

Topic: Review of 5e
Subject: Odyson’s Review of the 5e Basic Rules

Odyson’s Review of the 5e Basic Rules:

Well I am not reviewing this game from the GM’s side. I don’t run the games, I play the games. I have done a few different rules sets and I have to say I am not the quickest study to learn rules. I need to play a game a while to get the flow so this is just a first impression.

This weekend my son and two of his friends joined our usual tabletop group. To make things easier the GM pulled out the new D&D starter set. There are five pre-generate characters for jumping into a quick start. We had seven show up for the game so our GM’s two sons built characters from scratch. Even with that we got started in pretty quickly.

The game started a little slow as each player got use to their character and the character sheet. I played the cleric and I did mess up a bit on the difference of casting cantrips and spells. I confused having three cantrip slots and having three cantrips ready. I started thinking I could cast any cantrip but only three. It took a bit to figure it was that I could select three cantrips that I could cast as often as I wanted.

We started like good little gamers as first level with its low HP and limited spell choice. Even a few lowly goblins can create havoc on level one adventures and this game is no different. We lost two characters in the goblin cave. My son was playing the rogue with 9HP and took 24 damage in one hit and one of human fighters got DOA with the wizard cast an area effect spell that caught him in the area. My cleric even took a hit that dropped him to -7. So if you’re a fan of running rough shod you better bide your time.

A good game needs a good GM to keep thing moving and spice things up. Our GM Randy is very good at that and our encounters were a hoot. The roll play in this version is what it is supposed to be all about. The opportunities to build story and interplay are better than in other hack- n slash games.

So in a brief summary you get out what you put in, it is less complicated and an easy roll play so it plays quickly. I really need to play through a couple of more levels to see how character growth works, so I’ll report back after each session.

Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: The Battle, LV-426, 1:32 pm PT

The kid turned to start heading to the caves when he heard the ASREV opened up with full auto cannons on the corvette, it took out the back engines with a vengeance. Asher could see that ship would drop and wasted no time diving for cover, taking Ma down with him. He hustled them under the debris of the shuttle. As the large ship came down fast and hard, the impact shook the ground beneath them like an earthquake. Asher looked up and over at Rocinante expecting the landing struts to buckle but the old workhouse held steady as if an angel was watching over it.

The shacking stoped and the kid helped Trish out from under the debris. As they stood ASREVs and ASFS entered the atmo and swooped over the scene of the battle, heavier personnel carriers came in shortly after that. All of them broadcasting over speaker, "We are The Federal Marshalls of the Alliance. Drop all weapons and surrender. You are bound by law. We have assumed control. We have assumed control."

Asher found one of the seats from the shuttle and set it up for Trish. “Looks like we best stay put so they don’t confuse us with them.” He then help Ma into the seat, Trish layed her pink shotgun on the ground next to her. With the stimulants still coursing through his veins the PR man paced watching for fleeing mercs and hoping Lieutenant Vasques would come back.

Subject: Onward.............

“Unless anyone really is against letting you go, I believe that you shall walk free. However, answer this one question for me: how do you resist spells? I have never encountered a knight who so easily did so.", Cor spoke.
Ulthok really didn’t want to just release the knight but he’d learned to trust Cor, luck was often with him. He listened as this enemy prepared to leave.

“You of all people should know that Sir Dwarf… Wisdom, my wisdom is high enough to resist most charm spells and the like. Your Hold spell caught me off guard and so it took me awhile to break it. If that is all?”

The Knight regained his sword and other gear and headed for the door. Stopping as in thought, he turned to face Cor once more.

“For releasing me I give you this. Beware, there is a third of these Shadow-Wraiths” You can hear his tone of disgust. “Within this castle, called The Howler, beware of his voice”
The mage noted the information, just what they needed another ultra strong spell slinger to slow their progress.
The party secured the items Roan had found on the fallen foes. “Beware of weapon of those yellowfaces, they may carry strange magic.”
After the things were distributed or stored they headed out the back door following Barreel back the way he had come.

As they traversed the halls Peri clung to Ulthok’s shoulder, her small head lowered. Ulthok could sense the shame she felt and it would take some time for her to come to terms with what she had done to Sirene. Ulthok wanted to comfort her, but the shadow that had started crossing his heart since Valene was taken was leaving him feeling cold.

Coming to a pair of hallway the mage could see one leading to a stair going up and the other to another door. Moving up didn’t seemed to be the way to where prisoners would be held. Ulthok moved toward the door. “It may be more trouble but I think we need to check this room.”

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

So we have some more stuff.

5 potions,
3 bags of gold,
a well made expensive looking pin,
2 well-crafted bastard swords.
Orc well made armor though both sets were too small or too big for any of the party.
Githyanki he had found a number of well-designed swords, light and easy to use though two handed.

Beware of the Gith swords, they are highly treasured by the Gith and they are well none for sending groups to recover those weapons. Taking one of them would target you for direct attack.

Those wanting an Orc sword can have one, the rest of the weapons can go into a bag of holding for use later.

I'd say the gold and pin go in the group treasure sack unless there is a need for the pin.

Tann, can we tell what type of potions were found?

BTW, Ulthok well recommend going into the room. Stairs leading up doesn't seem likely to prisoners.

dudley moved up the strairs to find the success of Wembley with the sleeping lizard men on the floor. It didn't take long for the ranger to take control and tell him to tie up the sleeper. As Dudley looked aaround he noted there was no rope, but the creatures did have leather shoulder bags. "Well I guess luck is with us, we can use these straps to secure these fellows." As he he cut the straps and started securing the dozers others took the covering from the smashed wooden ninja, cutting it to strips and tying up the creature even better.

"If these guys don't wake we should take their weapons and move on."
