Topic: Dark Fantasy QnA
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.

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?

Topic: Titansgrave Adventures
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.

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.

Subject: poison


With poison in this game. You can do a number of things

- Wait it out (willpower vs poison strength) but this requires time

- Use a Stim Pack - It will flush the poison with stimulants

- Magical Healing (Revival, Restoration) and Potions will also work

Subject: first to die


Bring forth her spiritual powers to attack, Máiréad casts an Arcane Blast at the Firebug attacking Tomiki, and the mystic energy hits the beast, causing it to shriek again. But even though grievously wounded, or perhaps because of it, the bug darts forward to clamp its mandibles around Tomiki and haul the man up in the air while it attempts to snap him in half.

The other bug attacks Lum as he protects the mages of the party. He takes a swift blow to the side fro ma razor sharp leg, another from an upper leg and another bite as well. Fortunately, his armour takes the worst of the damage and Lum is once again thankful that he let Dwan talk him into the light battle armour.

Tomiki feels the pain in his sides and then he starts to feel a numbness spread into his body. He knows that he may not hold consciousness for long but the creature made a mistake bringing him so close to the unarmoured head. The elf drives both blades into the eyes and deep into the brain of the firebugs. It drops him with a wretched screech and them collapses dead beside the still form of Tomiki.

Lum slashed the armoured underside of the creature with a powerfully strong blow, cracking the armour plate and burying the axe into flesh and ooze. Wit ha gesture and a few words of Magic, Rhyson cast his arcane blast at the firebug which proves to be the final stroke against it as it too dies and falls to the ground.


OOC: Tomiki is seriously wounded (50% down) and poisoned. Lum has only light wounds (25%) and the poison never reached him.

Just another note, in situations where action is obvious (combat) and I have heard from 3/4 people in agreement, I will move forward if I can. Now is a good example, you have a plan, 3 of you agree but I have not heard from Tann. I feel I can move forward on assumption that Tomiki will continue to attack as before.

In theory, I would like to see once a week posting. However, I have done this enough to know that after awhile, RL starts to get in the way and we go to once every two weeks or so. So please try for once a week but let's all be understanding. You all know I have my own situation at home with my son so if I disappear for weeks, be patient and send me an email. Chances are I am dealing with something and don't have time.

Subject: blast


Arcane Blast - you can make a special Ranged Attack that damages foes with a blast of magical energy. This is resolved like a normal Ranged Attack (so criticals are possible), but the attack roll is an Accuracy (Arcane Blast) test. An Arcane Blast has a range of 16 yards and inflicts 1d6 + Willpower damage +lvl. (You are lvl 4)

It requires no mana points to make this attack.

Subject: good rounds


I have posted the combat. No one is injured in the party so far, although Lum's armour is really messy now.

Just a reminder to spellcasters - Arcane Blast does not cost you mana.

Rhyson got a critical strike on his first chain lightning and the FB's failed their willpower vs Spellpower check. Right now, both of them are critically injured (25% or less left of original HP).

Subject: Combat


Máiréad cast a spell quietly as she could to form a rock like barrier around her, thus protection from these firebugs. With a nod she signaled that she was complete and the party moved forward to face their opponents. Rhyson started to gather the power of his mana from within, knowing he had only this one chance to catch them off-guard. Lum moved forward with axe in hand while Tomiki hugged the shadows and looked to his opponents with eyes trained to find weaknesses. The armour plates of the firebugs were formidable but they were grooves between them to allow movement, and the head and shoulders area was exposed as well.

Máiréad called upon the spirits to help the party in their fight and was rewards with a surge of power and agreement of the spirits within this confines. Rhyson then let the lightning bolt blast out from his staff. The sheer power of it was surprising, even for the elven caster and he watched as the energy struck the first firebug and then arced to the second. The bugs made awful screaming like sounds as the electricity bounced back and forth between the creatures. When done. The firebugs were looking quite injuries and the smell of charred flesh filled the cavern.

Tomiki moved quickly to take on the half-baked beetle and attacks with his swords. The first attempt failed to move pass the armour but the second scored well and deep. Green ichor and goo ran down his blade and oozed out of the wound to the ground.

Lum’s tactics were direct and true, attacking the head of the beast where the armour as least. His axe also bit deep and the other firebug bleed green as well.

The firebugs move to defend themselves. Tomiki dodges the sharp blades legs of the attack and rolls out of the way of the mandibles but gets two cuts in with his blades. The second moves swiftly toward Rhyson, knowing that he caused the pain it knows feels. Lum moves to protect Rhyson and deflects the talon attacks with his axe but the firebug gets a bite down on Lum that his armour absorbs the worst of the damage. Lum strikes back with a heavy blow to the side of its head with the axe.

“Get down!” Rhyson shouts a warning and then casts the Chain lightning again. The energy strikes both bugs again as Lum and Tomiki hit the ground so they are not taken in the blast. The Lightening is not quite the strength of the last one but it does do significant damage to the two firebugs.

Máiréad moves to Lum in case he is wounded but he waves her off and she can see that the bite did not get through his light battle armour.

Although injured and their bodies smoking, The bugs still move to attack the party.



OOC: The FB’s are really hurting but are not dead yet. Initiative right now is
Máiréad
Firebugs
Tomiki
Lum
Rhyson

Note : Rhyson has used 24 mp now (out of 55) and Máiréad has used 8 (out of 50).

I need the languages of your character because the issue will come up soon.

Lum does not need to pick. T need 1, R needs 3 and M needs 4. You can decide that your player does not have the all the languages they could, that is up to you.

BB - M could have picked up ASE from any number of sources so yes she could know it.

List of languages:
Valka (Common)
Human
Elf
Dwarf
Orc
Saurian
Halfling

Ancient Saurian
Old Elven
Lagree (mages only)
Old Orc
Ancient Dwarf

Darkspawn
Troll
Ogre
Goblin

Topic: Dark Fantasy QnA
Subject: Light


The light from the doorway gives you an advantage because the FB are in the light and you are not. So you do not need to haul out flashights. As well, everyone has dark vision except for Boo Boo's Character, who is not attempting to attack.

By the way - you have surprise so you will get a free round of attacks. For the sake of fluidity, I will assume the melee attacks will continue as planned but what would the spell casters like to do next? Another spell?

I will need an answer on the languages before you go past the next set of doors.
