I will post the teleport and appearance outside this weekend. If I can get a post from Hammer and Nimu by then great, but otherwise don't worry about it. However once you are teleported to the "dungeon" the non-response clock starts.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: Pardon me Boys, Is this the catatonic choo choo?

It was a wonderful meal. It was extremely rare for the crew to be able to sit down and enjoy such good food at the same table and for the time of the repast, it was like family coming together for a celebration. Even the “guests” were in good spirits as you enjoyed the steaks and the other dishes that Catie had prepared. She obviously had a talent for cooking that would be well appreciated.

“We seem to have been at odds a bit here, but we thought of something that might help us all.” Jon went on to describe the idea of the yacht. “Now we ain’t been none too trusting of you.” he glanced at Stephanie as she sat there holding her serene smile, but Jon saw the satisfied look in her eyes. He continued, “If you can get your crew on the liner, we’ll get you the code to the snatch the yacht. That should give your people the leverage they want against Steele,” glancing back at Lillianna, “Without putting innocents at risk. I’d figure you are the best trained to covert activities so I’d guess not matter what we planned you’ll handle what comes your way. …Now eat up and if you have any ideas on how to help Lillianna and Daniel now’d be the time to pitch them out.”

Asante smiled at the idea, “I think that we could work with that plan but until we get to the cruise liner, there will be a lot of unanswered questions. Maybe if you let me contact my crew after dinner we could work something out?”

Conversation turned to lighter topics and soon the meal was at an end. You all leaned back feeling pleasantly stuffed and more than a little tired.

In fact, very very tired.

Maybe too tired.

Lilianna was the first to fall, just slumping down in her chair. Catie dropped almost as quickly. The two brothers jumped up to catch her but ended up crashing on the floor unconscious beside her. JC tried to move quickly away from the table but he too could not keep from going under and fell to the floor. Jon, Angela, Stephanie, Seth and Tess all slumped onto the table or in their chairs.

Grace clung hard to consciousness, her mind desperately doing math problems to try and stay awake. But she couldn’t resist it long. As she lost consciousness, she slammed her hand hard against the table dramatically and then dropped to the floor with everyone else.

Assante leaned back and smiled. She took another bite of the steak and laughed to herself at the silly dramatic gesture of the Mechanic, slamming her fist down, like some sort of final defiant gesture. She was still chuckling as she got up and headed to the bridge. “Naive. Jon. Very naive.”

She sat herself down in the chair of the bridge and pressed the buttons for the comm. to signal her ship, “Papa Bear this is Mama, Come in.”

Silence. Asante frowned and looked at the command console. On the view screen was “Emergency over-ride engaged. Please enter the 108 character password for access.”

Asante’s eye went wide. “108 character code? Who uses a 108 character code? And how did ....” Suddenly the defiant fist slamming down of the mechanic was no longer that funny. “Wo de ma he ta de fengkuang de waisheng dou! Tamade! Ta shi suoyou diyu debiaozi de ma! Tamade! Si san ba! Tamade! Tamade!" she shouted.

After taking a moment to regain her composure she returned to her room, picked up her bag and dug out her make-up kit and quickly broke apart the pieces needed to assemble her own come unit. While she was at it, she pulled out the bracelet and put it together to form her dart shooter, just in case someone woke up early.

“Papa Bear this is Mama Come in.”

“Mama this is Papa. What’s the sitc?”

“Plan A is a wash. Do gooders and angels for a crew. Move to B. I’ve goldilocked the crew.”

“Will move to intercept. The ship is damn fast. We’ve been on hard burn to keep up.”

“Well I can’t stop it. The Si san ba! mechanic locked the system. Don’t try to board either. The paranoid Si san ba probably has the dock rigged as well. I’ll try the shuttle but chances are I am gonna use the tracker and a suit. Find me in the black.”

“Right Boss. We are on the way.”

Asante packed her bag back up and headed down to the cargo bay, swearing to herself all the way. She passed through the galley to make sure everyone was still down and disarm any potential people who might wake up early. She briefly thought of some terrible revenge she could do but dismissed them out of hand. She would need these people again later and best not to make them too mad. However, an impish idea came to her that she could not resist.

Destiny Galley Day Three of Journey. 1:00 am ST

Jon woke up on the floor feeling like a very ugly dwarf was inside his head banging on a drum while marching back and forth with heavy boots. His vision was blurred buit he forced himself awake and to move upright. His crew was asleep around him as well as the passengers. He fought hard to make sense of what was happening when he realized someone was missing – Asante.

JC, Grace, Catie and Tess start to move tentatively. Then Jon sees Angela asleep on the floor and all that could imply hit Jon like a espresso coffee. She would wake up with no memories.

Jon stood up and his sight came back into focus. It was then he saw his clothing was folded neatly on the table. All of his clothing.... which meant ... Jon was completely naked.

Subject: In the dinning room with the candlestick

The party travels through the Eastern portal and arrives as the map predicted, through the north door of the Dining room. The room is the way you left it with the exception of the food is now gone. You now have a place to spread out the maps and see where you are going in this crazy maze of a place.

When the command is given to the table for food, nothing happens. The table remains bare.

“Whoa dude.” Ivan says, “Well at least I don’t have to face that terrible cat food again. Do you think we broke it?”

The room seems to be a bit dimmer. The fire in the fireplace appears to be burning lower even though it is magical and has no fuel.

Arien was party leader when you went to the tower where the Imperial Green Guard had captured your sister and a demon called The Green Goddess possessed her soul. You got to slay the commander (who had a green oversized arm with six fingers) who took her by shoving your flaming sword through his eye socket.

Subject: well met Olan

I cannot emphaize enough that in this game thta you should be precise as possible in your movements and actions. General statements can be very dangerous.

For example

"I'm scouting ahead of the party and checking the room"

Ok.I will assume you are 60 feet away from party. You are going into the room at least half way, looking around and then physically exploring the room.

My Response "You go into the room, spot a Playelf Magazine on the table. You open it up and the explosive runes blow up in you face for 50 points of damage. You reel back and fall into a pit trap, fall 70 feet into a Gelatinous Cube - Are you too pretty to die?"

As opposed to "I will stay ahead of party 40 feet to scout but stay in sight. When I reach the room I will take a step in and look around until I can get a idea of the contents. If everything seems ok, I will move into the room ten feet towards the centre and wait for the party."

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: And so we begin

You are gathered in the library of the palace, the eight of you ushered in quietly and without pomp or pageantry. You all know one another, having adventured together with one another over the years, but the last time you were all together was five years ago. It is good to see friends, comrades and companions again after so long although you all know the circumstances could be better. You have been given a drink of your preference, any food you may wish to request and made as comfortable as possible, but beyond that, it is all very secretive. You only have a few minutes to socialize with your friends before the door to the library opens.

Queen Yolanda enters the room from the garden entrance. She is not her normal self, poise and proper but looks tired and there is much concern behind those ageless eyes. She carries with her an orb that glows orange but the light within flickers like a candle in the wind.

“I will not waste time with pleasantries at this time, so please excuse me. There is a dire matter at hand which is why I called you here at such haste. In fact, alacrity may be our only advantage at this point. Tonight, my son Galenthanus was escorting three elven ladies from the kingdom of Furyondy back home. These three ladies are fraternal triplets, which I do not have to explain to you how rare that is among elves. They were returning from a trade mission when something attacked them. We do not know what but whatever they were, they have abducted the Ladies, Galen and 12 handpicked elven hunters. In fact, the only person not abducted was slain and a holy man - a cleric named Tal who was ... let us say tortured a great deal before he was slain. In fact, I believe that whatever killed him used magic to resurrect him again after he died so they could torture him all over again.

“Needless to say, whatever it was is powerful and has a following of equally powerful minions. That is why I sent for all of you here – you are the most powerful warriors of your age to stand against the dark forces.If anyone can rescue him, it is you. I know Galen is alive because of this.” She says and lifts the orb up where it hovers where she leaves it in the air, “This is similar to a life protection enchantment. With it I should be able to bring him to me, but I cannot, something blocks me and that is not a mild feat. All I know is that as long as it glows, Galen is alive. However, what those who have taken him do not know is that I can use this to get you to him.

“I am asking you all here to take a great risk and no one will question you were you chose to walk away. I can use the orb and my powers to teleport you close to where Galen is, but I cannot tell you what you will be going into, it is completely shielded from my view. I will not mislead you, you won’t end up in solid rock but you could be landing in danger right from the start.

“Now I have said that I do not know who has done this deed and that is true, but I hold a suspicion that the circumstances seem to add up to suggest it being true. Long ago, back when my father walked the Oerth, and humans were the rarity on the Flaness, he fought against three sisters named Morag, Mallenroh and Margana. You might call them witches or hags today, but their power and strength was beyond the creatures that roam the dark swamps of our world. They used an older magic based on earth and blood and it was very potent indeed. My father defeated the three sisters as they kidnapped three elven sisters. The Witches were planning to take their own souls and put them into the bodies of the elf maids. With their power, the elven blood and long life, they would have been immeasurably powerful. But as I said they were defeated before they could and their plan undone. But they were of such strength in mystic power that my father could not slay them outright only bereft them of mortal bodies. Their spirits were eternal and even without bodies they could possess others and move on. So he bound their souls into the black cauldron that they used to form their magic. So that no other evil forces or minions could release them, he bound them with blood magic and used his own blood. As a further barrier, he also made it so they could not be released unless it was all three at once unless the dispossessed bodies were of the same blood as well.”

The queen sighed and took a sip of wine, “I am sure he thought that within the confines of the magic, they would be bound for eternity but as you no doubt can piece together – all the elements are now in place. The triplets are of my bloodline and Galen is a powerful mage. If someone or something can force him or use his body to cast the blood spell – then the sisters will be released and they have a magic that none have seen on this world bar a few. I cannot confirm these is our enemy though, it is just a suspicion that grows in my mind.”

The Queen goes to one of the cabinets in the library and pulls out a black cloth. “if I am correct, then when you find the Black Cauldron, you can deal with it by covering it with this cloth and saying the command word Rowshawn while pulling the cloth back. It will cause the cauldron to disappear into a nether region where it can do no harm. Do not otherwise touch the cauldron or risk being taken yourself. Do not use the cloth on anything else as it will only work once. I will also give you two amulets with similar crystals as this, “she says with a hand to the orange orb, “Each one has a enchantment of recall to the palace that can bring back up to 12 people hand in hand by breaking the crystal. Note that you will not appear here but deep in the caverns beneath the palace in a area well sealed and watched - just in case they fall into the wrong hands.”

“Time is of essence. The blood magic to release them requires a full moon and that is tomorrow night. That is why I moved to find and bring you with such urgency. Galen and the ladies must be found and I ask you to aid me on this quest. What say you?”

Please explain to me why Finarsil only has 80 Hit Points instead of 100 Hit Points ???

Bards use d6 for hit dice in 2e. At 15th level you have 10d6+10 which is 70 (you do not have a constitution bonus). Add the extra ten and it becomes 80.

But you know, I gave some other people additional hit points so I am going to bump it back to 100.

Since she gets the +2 for the Bracers of Ye' Cind the description that she wears +3 Chain Mail (on her Character Sheet) is now apparently obsolete!

The Bracers give you a base AC of 2 not +2. I can fix the description, not an issue. remember I had a mountain of sheets that I copied and pasted from.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: starting off

So it was that your life as an adventurer, a wanderer, a seeker of fortune had ended and you had moved on to more gentle pastimes. Whether you were training the young, raising a family or dealing with the politics of neighbouring kingdoms, there were times when you looked to your equipment and magic and sorely missed the days when evil was something vanquished and you could spend your loot on ale and a bed for the night.

One autumn night however, you received a sending. It came to some in their sleep, others as they were awake or traveling, but to all of you it was the same – an image of Yolanda, Queen of Celene, calling you.

“Help me (your name), for the kingdom of the Grey elves and perhaps that of mankind is in grave danger. I know you have aided my son Galenthanus many times in the past. Please come to me now in my time of need.”

If the urgency of the matter was not driven into you by her gaunt features and worried eyes, then the fact that within the hour you were met by someone sent by the queen to aid in your haste certainly added to the severity of the situation. Spell casters with the ability to teleport you to The Palace of The Faerie Queen.

You get ready to go, dressing as you once did to enter dangerous caverns or old ruins to see what lies beyond. But a lingering fear resides in your mind – why did Galen not contact you? Why was it his mother?
