Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: Update


The companions had decided to generally take a peek in all rooms come across, then decide if the venture is worth a more in depth look.

Moving down the hallway to the first door on the left, Artanis gives the iron handle a gentle push, and the door creaks on ancient hinges as it swings open revealing what lay beyond. The room itself is fairly small, only 10’ x 10’ in size. The walls are bare, and the room is filled with barrels, some stacked two or three high, others sitting alone. The room now opened lets a smell of spoiled foodstuffs and mould escape into the hallway.

The door on the right, Xaris pushes open with some effort. Rust from years of moisture has set in, and as the door is opened, it lets out a grinding wail as the metal scrapes against itself, and the swollen wood of the door is forced against the frame. Stopping for a moment and listening for any indication that some foul creature may have been alerted to the noise, Xaris breathes a sigh of relief when nothing comes bounding down the hallway ready for battle.

Peering into the room, another 10’ x 10’ square room meets his gaze. This room is empty save for a stone statue set against the center of the back wall. It depicts a Horse headed humanoid rising to strike down a centaur; the elaborate statue fills the back wall. The Horse headed man, holds a gleaming spear, which even in the dim light of the room sparkles. The shaft is encrusted with small gemstones, and the spear point shines with an orange glow, as though it were still in the fires of the forge in which it was made. The centaur, has a shield raised above its head, and the shield too is of perfect quality compared to the aged and weathered stone statue bearing it, what with its gemstones ringing the outside edge, and polished mirror finish. It almost appears ornamental.

Along the base of the statue is an inscription written in ancient an ancient dialect which none of you seem to understand.

I have the aith's and pantheon's book, so feel free to try and level towards any Prestige class therein. I think I have an idea of what you're going for, but let me know just i case.

"Option 3"
Alright, I'll give a run down as to rooms -at-a-glance. For the hallway you're in for example, I'll have you guys open two doors to start, and see what you wanna do.

Loot:
Splitting it up is entierly your decision!

Potions as a rule:
Anyone with the brew potion feat can identify potions with a successful spellcraft check. Sample sipping will garner a more desriptive flavor of the potions.. :Ie, Aelistae sis the blue potion, finding it bittersweet and leaving a tangy aftertaste. It smells vaguely of pine."
While that may not mean anything, should it be identified, it may help should you find future copies of the potion, or it could possibly lead you astray rusting your senses like that

'Identify spell on potions:
For spending 100gp (pearl) plus an hour of time identifying, I've always ruled that when it comes to potions specificaly, I roll a D4+1/2CL's and that's how many potions are identified with a single casting. (In the case of the scroll, that's 1d4+2.)

...

Hope that helps!
Now onto the update

I thank you for the Blessed Weapon spell.

The Transfer spell would be ideal for transfering a cure ight wounds, a lame blade, or even now, a Blessed weapon spell to another party member. (seeing they are all level 1 or 2 spells.) At the trade off of losing a third level spell, it helps with a little more flexibility.


Adventure.
You know Emmy's stand on the matter.

Topic: The Chakran Portal - an Adventure in Audalis
Subject: Dirty Rotten Lizards.


Thondrek knew from the tip of his spine to the wiry hairs of his beard that this was no going to be an easy venture, and as soon as the willow shot forth to ensnare Geim, The Duskblade was ready with a counter-offensive. His fiery bolt struck true, but seemed not to affect the branches which lashed around Geim pulling the air from the Loremasters lungs.

"Crap" was all he said, and in common no less so surprised was the Khord. To make matters worse, The old lizard they had thought to have felled, along with another healthier one had appeared, outflanking the group, leaving little hope of escape what with Wulf and Aluwego screaming in pain behind them, as though a thousand Orcish war drums beat within their heads.

Knowing that the Lizards would likely ensnare them in a field of silence, Thondrek immediately activated the command word for his Moon Blade (swift action), the enchanted weapon designed to deal with those afflicted by curses of undead and lycanthropy. Perhaps a boon this would prove on these accursed lizards, for the moonblade also held a secondary function, the ability to scramble magic, and he hoped it would help prevent the lizards from using their silence fields.

While speech was still an option he yelled. "Alyssia, fry the healthy one, disrupt its casting and sever its head or set it to the torch!"

As he spoke the heavy footfalls of the Khord were already moving towards the wounded Lizard, slashing his enchanted blade at the creature hoping to fell him before he could scream. He hated the thought of leaving Geim in the position he was in, but there were others who could sever the branches with their enchanted weapons and fighting skills, his role was to subdue the beasts that would prevent their casting, and more important, healing.

(Thondrek is taking a charge action against the wounded lizard -only way to reach him in one round and attacking with the moon blade hoping to deal enough damage or disrupt his useage of spell like abilities.

On that note, how long as it been since I've gotten the first post in... or a post of this length.. wooo for renewed vigor on the creativity scale... Go team!)

Subject: Thondrek


"I'll not be leavin a fellow Khord ta brave the likes of an acursed tree alone;" Thondrek says as he takes a step up beside the turtle shelled Geim.

"He pulls forth a small bead from his necklace, keeping it in his free hand. May this aid in the cleansing of this abomination."

"Geim, Khorox shall see us through this, and when it's done, we'll share a pint and laugh at the visions of you which will haunt our dreams longer than this tree ever did Har har!"

Thondrek will similarily fashion wide based shoes like Geim, but will not mount anything to his head.
"Whenever you're ready, I'll cover you."

(Thondrek will cover Geim with a Fire Bolt spell, and then speak the command word to activate his moon blade.)

Subject: hmm


Thondrek stood there while everyone bantered back and forth. They had discussed what needed to be done, but noone was actually doing anything.

"Are we gonna stand here wagging our tongue or are we gonna get to the rub down?" Ye swordsingers have dealt with these things before, so this one shouldn't be a problem right? If none of ye wanna get yer pretty little feet mucky, then hand me the potion, and I'll 'hop' on over to the tree and give it a nice Khordish massage.
The Duskblade's fingers glow with magical auras, and he grins at the others. "Or we can just burn the dang thing to the ground and rub the roots when it's felled."

The Khord was waiting for a response, sometihng needed to be done.

(Trying to get some sort of decisive action. Or Almerin's not going to have much to post tomorrow..)

Subject: Alright..


My question here is this.

Are you the group that's going to go room by room trying to clear every spot of the dungeon? or shall I leave the choices and mingling and decision making amongst you all each time there's a option of where to go?

The first option will speed the game up in allowing me to just post where you go and what you see, but could put you in unwanted danger...

The latter, will slow the game down some, because you'll all need to discuss each and every option each and every time.. banter back and forth, quibble argue, debate and so forth about risk assessment vs possible reward (or in this case finding the wife and child you're searching for)

Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: Choices


The party had been reunited, and the signs of happiness only heightened as Kasenarrion’s unexpected show of divine faith poured forth to heal some of the wounds of her companions. Xaris was standing watch over the door from which the orcs had come forth, while Artanis moved quietly about the fallen enemy in search of anything that might be of benefit for their cause.

Picking through the bloody mess of corpses was not so glorious a task, but when all was said and done, the woman had piled a small collection of items and coin.

88 gp
101 silver
47 copper
4 falchions
1 suit of leather armor (barely held together by stitching and some sticky substance)
Copper ring with many teeth marks in it
String necklace with 5 humanoid fingers strung on it
String necklace with 3 human, 1 elf and 1 gnomish ear strung on it
Waterskin (half full by weight)

(Artanis can decide what to claim along with anyone else if needbe in back posting or q/a but I’m moving on)

What spoils could be collected were, and the party settled back into their preferred marching order. Moving further down the corridor they were now in, the party rounded the corner at the end of the hall to the left. Here, the candle-orbs were spaced further apart, only one every 15 feet, leaving much of the hallway in dim illumination. The hallways continued a great distance ahead, at least one-hundred feet ahead of them, beyond even those with low light or dark vision’s capability of seeing. There were doors lining both the left and right side of the hallway, 2 on the right with 30ft or so between them, and 2 on the left, at about the 20 and 40’ mark from where the party currently stands.

Some choices lie ahead of you.
(see Q/a section please)

Topic: For Whom the Bell Tolls Q&A
Subject: Also


is there no 2e version of magic weapon? Its a first level spell in 3e that temporatily grants a weapon a +1 threshold... I'm wondering i it exists in 2e at all, or if possible we can make a customized version..


On that note, I wonder if you'll allow this spell taken from an online House rules ist of spells I found while randomly perusing.

Transfer Spell:
Level: 3
(Abjuration)
Sphere: Protection, Magic
Range: Touch Components: V, S
Duration: Special
Casting Time: 1 rd.
Area of Effect: 1 creature Saving Throw:
None

This spell allows the priest to transfer some small portion of his deity's blessing to an ally, with some restrictions. Firstly, the Ally can be no more than on alignment step away from the priest, nor can they worship an opposing deity. (This extends into simple roleplay, not just fellow priests or divine casting classes)
Secondly, transfer spell only allows spells of up to second level, and with a range of 'touch' to be transfered. Only one spell may be carried by an ally at any given time, and the priest is without that spell for as long as the recipient carries it, or until the priest prays the following day, thus robbing the recipient of ther borrowed blessing.

I think it's a decent spell, but I'll leave the choice to you, Im just hoping it will allow some flexibility in my limited spellcasting.

I was in Stratford von Avon when I was 8 years old with my dad for one of those weekends, he had ties to whomever held it so I could sit in on it I was freaked out of my gourd but had a wonderful time. No wonder I love playing clue so much!

Emmy.. I had intended on Pming you actually, about Emmerus talking to Bishop abner about borrowing some templars and revisiting the woods... So Jozan's chaacter and maybe some npcs... because he knows in his heart that the drad is doing the killing...
