Subject: next challenge


Lum works on the backup generator for about twenty minutes, swearing in orcish under his breath about rust and clogged intake valves. He takes apart sections of it, cleans them as best he can and then reassembles the unit. After pouring water into the manifold and turning a hand crank to start it up, the machine begins to purr like a kitten – a mechanical kitten. Tomiki and Lum then connect the generator to the doorway control panels and ….

The magnetic seal on the door releases and slides open….

Through the security door you see a long corridor before you (at least 100” or longer, 20’ wide). The floor is the same steel grate that the stairs were made of and the walls are metal with many conduits, power junctions, steel boxes and cables running along them. Some lights are operating in here; many are flickering rapidly though giving a strobe like effect to the scene. There were a few windows along this corridor at one point but they are now completely blackened on the outer side with centuries of dirt and dust. Looking down the corridor, there are piles of debris and equipment scattered throughout, some of which can be avoid, others that will have to be climbed over to pass. The ceiling is at least 25 feet above and was covered with ceiling tiles that have now rotted away to reveal all the torn and falling HVAC vents that were previously used in this facility. The air is humid here, and smells of rotting cardboard and plaster.

The image here is more of a "guide" to what it looks like as I could not find anything that truly matched my vision. Unlike this image, the ceiling is higher and the corridor is wider - 20 feet across.

Sorry I did not say the size of the generator is about the size of a portable vacuum cleaner.

I assume you have water on you in the form of canteens or skins.

Ody - your assumption on the working of the generator are correct. You can try both methods to open the door but the generator will take longer to get going so you could try battery then generator.

Ody - Lum and the rest of the party could not recognize the symbols on the map. You will need to take it to Dwan or someone who knows the Rust Wastes well.

Subject: moving along


For a room that has been sealed for what looks like along time, there is very little dust in here or on the control panels. The panels ae all labeled in Ancient Saurian but that only helps so far as even though Máiréad can read the labels, they are mostly acronyms and short forms. Between Lum and her looking over things, you get the feeling this was once the main control centre for a facility that required a lot of monitors and safety systems. Perhaps a military base or a mine or even a huge sanitation centre, either way the main power is cut to this room and the red light indicates that everything is in standby mode.

Lum starts by flicking the switch to the lights, which doesn’t work and then starts to pull the control panels up to look at the wiring underneath. If he can figure out where power came in before, it might be able to restore it.

Tomiki and Rhyson examine the sealed door before them. The mage hears no noises beyond the steel frame Tomiki pulls open access panel nearby. Having worked a few jobs with security systems before, Tomiki is reasonable sure he could bypass the lock by using one of the batteries you have on you. It would drain the battery but it would get the door open at least.

Máiréad tries to communicate with the spirits of this place but they are strangely silent here. In fact, it is more quiet here spiritually speaking than any place she has been before.

Lum finds something in the cabinets under the control panel. It is an old emergency fusion generator. It would normally run on water but it has been down here for years. If he could get it working, the generator allow would be would a lot to Dwan back home.

I have posted to move us along. Just for piece of mind, the map and the firebugs are all hooks for the next adventure.

Topic: Titansgrave Adventures
Subject: the bag


The messenger bag is covered with blood adnd stuck to the leg at an angle, leading to a general conclusion that the spider probably killed the messenger and got caught with the bag. Inside the tube is a single piece of parchment rolled up.

 photo messengerbag.jpg



The Symbols at the bottom are a form of Orcish. It is not quite the dialect Lum is used to but the words mean - This is the way send more "something".


The doors are metal and have no power to them. After a quick check for traps from Tomiki, Lum pushes them aside easily. Beyond is a plain room with nothing in it except steel walls and another door. Although sealed, the doors are not locked and with effort, Lum and Tomiki can slide them aside easily.

Beyond the second set of doors is a (20x20) room that is very dark. With flashlights, you can see this is/was a control room at one point with both sides of the room lined with panels and large multi-screen monitors. All are currently off, other than a blinking red light on the control panels to the left. The security door on the opposite side of the room is sealed shut. On the right, there are a series of cabinets under the control panels.

Subject: Nomad's questions


1. Did we notice anything on the way down the stairs that might have been another entrance? Was most of the climb down done in darkness so we wouldn't be able to see? Was the stairwell, too big to see across? Are we talking about climbing the sides of this room, but not the stairwell?

You did not notice anything but then again you weren't really looking for a possible passageway that a spider like animal could crawl through. As well the cavern was very big. We are currently talking about climbing the wals but frankly I'd worry about the door first.


2. Are the walls rough enough that climbing seems reasonably possible?

There would be a skill check involved.

3. Rhyson looked around the room in his previous post. Am I right that he found nothing? (Beyond the eggs)

Yes unless there was something specific you wished to examine.

Communicating with me via the inn is problematic as I do not get any email notifications anymore. Not for posts nor PM. So you can inform me either way and I do check the thread/inn at least a couple of time a day.

Subject: by the lore


Firebugs were created to not bred. So yes, this is different.

You can not see a way in/out for the FB on the level you are on currently. However, you might find something if you were to climb and search.

The eggs will die if cooled. Value as an item? Possible but what would they use it for? You got breeding killing machines here - do you want them in anyone's hands?

Subject: moving in


The poison in Tomiki's system is designed to incapacitate the victim so they can be consumed later by the bugs. Mai uses all of her healing touch just to reverse the effects. Once he starts to revive, she applies the same spell again to get him properly healed and moving again. (MP total - 6)

Lum wounds are not serious and a single healing touch is more than enough to get the orc back to full health. (MP =1)

Looking around, one of the dead spiders has something caught on one of its legs. It looks like a messenger's bag that became wound up around the leg .

There is no way in or out of this cavern that you can see but there is a lot of ground above you so unless you are willing to climb around, it is unknown to you how the firebugs got here.

Going up the stairs to the doorway, there is a section of the steel that has been melted away on your left. When you look at it, there is a pool of ... Firebug spit? ... and two eggs within. There area is very hat and radiated heat even as far as the stairwell.

The doors are partially open, and will have to be forced apart if the bigger members of the party wish to get through. Looking from this side with your lights, beyond is a 20x20 room with steel walls and another set of security doors opposite to these. That set of doors is closed but there is no indication of power so it is not likely magnetically sealed.

Topic: Dark Fantasy QnA
Subject: Generally


I assume that you are using any skills you have that do not consume points. So in the combat, Tomiki was using his pinpoint attack and pierce armour skills. Lum used his Guardian skills which is why he could take so much damage and keep going.

I will post what is in the room and the spider bodies soon.
