Subject: spells


Blast. Should have changed my spells around since we were going into the tunnel. I made those with the "Haila is still a dragon, so she could totally carry us across the chasm" thought in mind, buuuuuuut since summer caught me I never did have the chance to voice my opinion.

I guess if you can get Cynil can sleep for four hours, I can re adjust those spells to things like 'transmute rock to mud' and the like.

Additionally, what is our line-up in the cave? I have a vague idea that Cynil is in the middle somewhere, but where? And I'm kinda confused by the fact that someone without some type of dark vision is in the front.

I hate it when doors aren't actually doors but they really seem like doors.

I'll make a couple of changes to my post to reflect the findings.

Subject: Kaimelle ~ Magic Missile Away!


Kaimelle watched the dance unfold around her. She knew that this man’s skill was excellent, and it pained her to watch her two new comrades be foiled so easily. Brick shards exploded into the air as the Gano’s sword hit the floor.

Focus…focus!

The bearded man slashed and made contact, the force of his swing carrying him to the side. The way was clear. The Mith’ganni’s moon eyes glowed brighter as she reached towards the Ether. It was more difficult now to exercise restraint; she was so tired and there was so much offering itself to her. Focus!

Blind him. Her slender fingers fanned out before her as she let the Ether flow from them. Colors shot down the hallway and into her tormenter’s eyes. His hand flung up to shield them from her spell, and the Gano took the advantage. The three of them struggled in combat, and it occurred to Kaimelle that they might fail.

Protect yourself. The elf shrouded herself in the Ether, adding a little more defense then the ragged and torn clothes she was wearing. It felt warm against her skin, and was a comforting thought as her mind wracked with options.

Hurt him. She knew the spell she wanted to cast would hurt him, even though he was engaged with her comrades. If only she could keep a hold of the Ether long enough to do it.








OOC: Magic Missile! Yup. For two rounds. ^_^

Topic: Realms of Twilight - A Journey Begins
Subject: Raina ~ the patterns, THE PATTERNS!


Lightening streaked across the sky, momentarily revealing the faces of those entering in the cave. They made their way blindly into the gloom, guided only by Quarlin’s voice. Walls and ceiling weighed down upon them like oppressive hands, and no matter how wide the eyes had gotten, no details revealed themselves to those who couldn’t see in the dark.

Raina was just wondering if she could find her tinderbox in the dark, when the tunnel suddenly opened. Into what, she had no idea, and she opted to stand still while the Umbral decided what to do.

"I Don't know what you all can see but from my view, we are pretty safe at the moment,” Quarlin said into the darkness. Safe is good. “ Raina, if you feel up to it, I know you are more used to picking locks, but if you would take this sunrod, you will see three doors. I'd feel better if you could find a way to lock them from our side so we can rest safely and without disturbance."

“Uhhhh…” the burglar started, but before she could voice what a ridiculous notion that was for someone who couldn’t even see the doors, Quarlin cracked a sunrod. Accepting it without comment, Raina took a moment to let her eyes adjust to the light.

As soon as she saw it, she followed the Umbral over to the pit in the middle of the room.

“This is convenient,” she said darkly. Raina cast a significant look and Heironymous before turning to the doors. She began examining each one closely. No locks. The more she looked at them, the worse she felt. Her eyes danced up and down the pattern on the doors, and after making sure that none of them had a way to lock them, she came over and sat down next to the fire. Nausea hit her, and she tried not to retch.

“Nothing,” she panted, holding her injured side and trying to steady the dizziness that infected her mind, “nothing to lock. Nothing to open it, nothing to close it. Nothing. They are doors alright, but they lack all the right parts to be doors.”








OOC:I figured all that looking at crazy patterns made her feel pretty ill. ^_^

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Cynil ~ Under Pressure!


“Is everyone alright?”

A cacophony of coughs began responding to Cor’s question. Dust swirled around as the party moved to get it out of their eyes and lungs. The druid’s eyes were wide with attempting to see what had happened. She was in the middle of the group and could see nothing but bodies.

Alasdair’s voice rang out, "I'm alive back here. Everyone else alright? Kenji, any sign of a way to continue? I heard a rumble behind us so I doubt we can make a trip back the way we came."

“Cynil my love are you well?” Her heart skipped a beat at Connall’s strong voice calling out to her.

“I’m alright,” Cynil responded, pausing to cough up a little bit of dust from her throat, “What happened? It sounded like the tunnel gave way.” Fear tickled at the corners of her mind. If this was true… if they were trapped…

That's my take on it, but ultimately, DM's ruling is law.

Subject: I do believe a refund is in order...


In regards to Ulthok’s Amulet of Life Protection: I am using the http://www.coryj.net/CoreRule/toc.php page that Tann provided for 2.0 rules.

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.

Recharging Magical Items
Some items that carry several charges are rechargeable. Recharging isn't easy, but it is easier than creating an entirely new magical item. High-level wizards or priests may find it useful to boost up an old item.

To recharge an item, it must first be enchanted either through the use of an enchant an item spell or prayer, as noted above. Once prepared, new charges can be cast into the item. One benefit of recharging an item is that each charge requires only the spells' normal casting time (not the 2d4 hours per spell level normally required by the enchant an item spell).

However, recharging is not without risk to the item. Each time the item is enchanted to recharge, it must roll a saving throw vs. spell (using the saving throw of the caster) with a -1 penalty. If this saving throw is failed, the character has accidentally interfered with the magic of the item and it crumbles into useless dust.

Destroying Magical Items
Occasionally characters may find it desirable, useful, or vitally necessary to bring about the destruction of a magical item. Magical items are more resistant than ordinary ones, but they are hardly indestructible, as Table 29 shows.

Characters who have possession of a device and are determined to destroy it can do so at will. They need only snap the blade of a magical sword or burn a lock or whatever.

It is possible to target specific magical items held by others, but it is very difficult. (In fact, it is no easier or harder than attacking a non-magical item.) Attempting to destroy an enemy's magical item may require attack rolls, saving throws, and item saving throws.

The breaking of a magical item should result in something more dramatic than the breaking of a vase or a windowpane. As DM you are perfectly justified in describing a dramatic explosion of force, a small whirlwind, a foul stench, or whatever seems most appropriate to the moment.

For some items, particularly some staves, there are specific rules that define the effects of the item's destruction. Such cases are rare and the effects are devastating, so they are recommended only for those in the area. You might, for example, dictate that characters within 1 foot, 5 feet, or even 10 feet suffer 1d8 points of damage.

This is just an example—the actual damage can vary, at your discretion. Remember, however, that such damage should only be used for effect; it should never kill or seriously injure a character. After all, killing the character in the explosion of his own magical sword is piling injury upon insult; the loss of a prized magical treasure is bad enough!

So my thoughts are that it says nothing about it carrying multiple charges in the description, so it seems to me like it still functions fully unless it was destroyed. I’d also say that it’s a really high level magical item, and you better bet your buns that you got lucky to get it! Plus, don’t let anyone steal it then stab you in the back.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: Tess ~ preflight checks check out!


“You got that right, sweet cheeks.”

Through the oncoming headache, Tess managed a small grimace in Ken’s direction.

Gorram wine and rum.

Things in the bar seemed to be feeling tenser the longer they sat. Tess’s eyes wandered back to Howard, wondering how to best approach him and ask him his last name without the Feds noticing. The captain made a sudden movement, and Tess saw him pound the last of his wine in her peripheral vision. She pushed her water glass away, and got up with Jon. They strolled out of the cantina apparently unnoticed by the Feds.

Ta Ma Duh, why can’t things just go right once? That guy meeting Norm was no coincidence. Then bing bang boom in drops the Feds,” Jon started up as soon as they were out of earshot of the little bar. His arms started moving animatedly as he got more fired up about what had happened.

“We need to get that cargo and burn before something else happens. There’s something hinky going on, that bird Colonal and his “chicken outfit are in the middle of it." Tess sniggered at the thought as they angled towards Destiny.

He went on, and his face showed determination, "If Norm gets that cargo to us we’re taking it, one way or another we’ll make some credits on it or have one hell of a party.“

“Don’t worry Capt’n,” Tess said, her eyes taking in the beauty of their ship as they approached, “if we can get that fancy jiu on her, Yuan Fen will blast out of here before those marshals have time to wonder where they left their ship parked. Or anyone else for that matter.”

Footsteps pounded from behind them, and Tess spun her head to look. The Feds that they had just left were sprinting toward the ASREV. Speak of the devil.

"But Captain! Come on! A 4-17! I thought we didn`t have to chase these anymore."

"Stop complaining Hudson. They must have good reason to call us. They had better or I`ll be very pissed."

They scrambled into their ship, and flipped the hatch shut. It took almost no time at all for the ASREV to be airborne. Damned government efficiency.

“Whew look at that, they’re running around like a bunch of chickens with their heads cut off,” Jon mused, “Well for all I care they can head back to their Old Kentucky Home.”

Tess watched the pressure waves circling the engines as they climbed higher in the atmo, “Agreed.”

“4-17?” Ken muttered, but she didn’t catch the rest of what he said. Jon’s pocket began beeping at him.

“That’s Jason, let get a wiggle on and see what’s up.” Jon stepped up his stride, and Tess easily followed.

That evening’s meal consisted of protein paste mixed with a little bit of herbs from their garden bunk. Jason was getting better at mixing the spices together, the first trial and error meals had been more spice then paste, and that evening hadn’t been a bad attempt at all. Ken’s comment received a somewhat friendly punch from Tess. After tending the garden bunk, the pilot made her way to the bridge and began the preflight checks.

Destiny’s engines were nicely warmed up by the time Sellers got there at midnight. Jon’s comment about taking the wine no matter what hadn’t gone unnoticed by her, so she wanted to make sure that they could jump this rock at the drop of a barrel. She leaned back in the squeaky, well loved helm chair and waited for the word.

Ken’s voice crackled over the intercom, ““All secure here… ready to break atmo whenever you're ready Captain.” Tess’s hands began moving quickly as she rubbed the undersides of the chair, brushed the comm. console with her left hand, and touched a tooth that was secured around her neck with a leather cord. Her hands came up and snapped the goggles on her head down around her eyes. Now that her personal preflight check was made, all she waited on was the go ahead from Jon.

Okay, so I finally figured out what Grugg was talking about. The following images all have artwork that was not done by me, but pulled off of the internet from various sites. If you wish to use these cards for anything other then amusement, I can get you the websites that they were used from, so you can ask permission!

Keep those cards coming, I think they're awesome! And if anyone has any artwork they'd like me to substitute in for a card, change some wording around, etc. just let me know ~ they're super easy to edit. Additionally, if any moderator wants to put these up somewhere, you have my full permission to do so. Or if you want to tell me that this is too much bandwidth as it is and I need to take it down, also just let me know!

Make sure to click on the zoom button on the pictures. The link will take you to a picture that's about 2/3 the size ~ I think they look better at full size.
