Questions

To the group - A couple of these I asked above, but since they came in later in an edit I want to put them here again. Decisions needed so weigh in even if you aren't sure. Say something.

1. Is there a reason to pick a direction? I don't know of one. If we don't have a reason to make a choice I'd say stick next to one of the walls - it seems to offer the best chance of not getting lost. To pick one, I'd head left.

2. Is there a way to get a clue about a choice? This means a pathfinder spell of some sort, perhaps? (Talca is a ranger and can try tracking, but it beholders are the primary travelers here, I suspect they don't leave much for tracks. Then again, if there are tracks . . . ) Can anyone fly? Would going up give us a better vantage point? (Where'd yah go Peri?) How high can they go an remain veiled? Divination spell of some sort?

3. How long does the veil spell last?

4. Do you think it is possible that this opens onto another plane? The super cold? The cyclops seemed to not know what was below his tower despite its power. Is there a way to check?

5. Are we concerned that this is taking us away from the tower? The time thingy was supposed to be in the tower.

6. I did not expect the wall to have been blown out from the tower. I kinda expected it to be how the beholders got into the tower. But now, whatever made the opening was already on the inside. Did tower denizens invade the cave instead of the other way around? Tann moved us through the room quickly so maybe it isn't an important clue, but it does strike me as odd and not at all what I expected.


Ok Tann, two more for you:

1. The cave is big. From the description I get the impression we can't see the far sides in any direction, right? Can we tell how high it is?

2. The beholder guards that we blew up at the top of the stairs - they appeared to be guards of some sort. Could we tell if they were guarding the stairs to protect someone from inside the tower going down into the cavern or were watching the stairs to prevent someone from coming out of the cavern into the tower? I know beholders can look both ways at once, but there would likely be a general sense of which way most of their eyes were looking. Which way was the central eye looking?

And that is all for now.


I just liked this one because it made me think of the beholders. Go spell casters!

Information....

With this cavern being so big we can't see much we can't really pick a good direction.

Ulthok has a potion of dragon sight which triples his sight distance. I'll have him use it to get a better look around. He will slip on his boots of spider climbing and scale the near wall to get a better look. Or someone could cast levitate of Fly on Ulthok so he could rise up and get a good look.

Anyone got those spells?

Ok...posted using the Dragon Sight to see more into the cavern. Hopefully Tann will reveal to him things of interest.

Spies we are

Hopefully Ulthok's Dragon Sight and Sirene's Wizard Eye will pull something up.

My apologies once again

6. I did not expect the wall to have been blown out from the tower. I kinda expected it to be how the beholders got into the tower. But now, whatever made the opening was already on the inside. Did tower denizens invade the cave instead of the other way around? Tann moved us through the room quickly so maybe it isn't an important clue, but it does strike me as odd and not at all what I expected Ok after I read this, I went back over my notes and realized I had made a mistake. The stone from the wall WAS blown into the towers hallway. Also to get to the cavern you had to travel through a 50 yard mined out tunnel. The tower was built and after the Beholders found out about it they attacked it.

Now answers to your 2 new questions

1. The cave is big. From the description I get the impression we can't see the far sides in any direction, right? Can we tell how high it is? Nope the ceiling is way beyond anyone’s normal sight.

2. The beholder guards that we blew up at the top of the stairs - they appeared to be guards of some sort. Could we tell if they were guarding the stairs to protect someone from inside the tower going down into the cavern or were watching the stairs to prevent someone from coming out of the cavern into the tower? I know beholders can look both ways at once, but there would likely be a general sense of which way most of their eyes were looking. Which way was the central eye looking? Into the tower towards where you all came from clearly watching for anyone headed towards them.

FFS!!!

Sorry folks! What with the upheaval in my life lately, I'd completely forgotten about Talca and Trilogy.

Immense thanks to Nomad for the not so subtle reminder - you're the man, Nomad!

I'll snatch Talca back from Nomad's "double duty," now, and rejoin you all this week!

He's Back!

Sweet!

And I thought I was only getting a good jab in before the spittle flew! Instead we got another poster!

As for the group, I guess we follow the light. That plan has never gone wrong, right? I guess the only decision is which way we go to find the beholders - left along the wall, right along the wall or straight ahead. Just to pick a direction, I say, "bear left!"

Which Way...

I guess from Tann just telling us of North, East and West were our options then south was to our backs. The shortest distance is usually a straight line, so with the lights being to the North that straight into the middle of the cavern. Into that wide open, unprotected expanse. Attack coming from any direction, but perhaps the shortest, quickest to the lights.

So do we boldly venture forth straight to the light and get this over with or slink along the wall keeping one side protected where Ulthok can take a high place to better watch above and Sirene can send her eye out at a lower level to watch for danger?

Slink?? Did you say slink???

"Slink?!"

Real warriors do not slink! They march proudly forward towards the enemy! Only cowards slink! A real warrior has pride! Only the ones who want to die in their beds slink! Courage is bold! Only those that fear death slink! Only those that want to live a long time slink! Only those that don't want to get blasted to bits by beholders or torn to shreds by dragons slink! True warriors . . . advance cautiously with their backs protected.

Lothor votes for slinking.

It's What We Do......

Thieves ...ah...I mean Master Procurers use stealth...yeah that's it Stealth....it just looks like slinking to the untrained eye.

Sooo pooped out

Ok no post tonight as I am so wiped out from the Miniatures Convention that my brain is in carbonite freeze. So next post next Sunday the 19th. More details of my awesome and insane victory in the Circus Maximus Chariot race to come, hopefully with pics, soon.

Direction.....

So do we play it safe and head west along the wall?

I'm good with that.

Ok..Here We Go....

Well I'm too pooped to write tonight but tomorrow I'll get things going. We painted the family room and with all the furniture moving and such I may have over done a bit.

I'll have Ulthok start to lead the party along the west wall. That will at least protect us on one side but take longer to reach the lights.

He climb the wall again to keep a high over view. Talco may wish to lead on the ground, checking carefully and Sirene may want to continue using her Wizard's Eye.
