Ok, you asked for it. :)

 photo Cone_zpsb9888366.jpg
Ok, lets say this is a 2 dimensional representation of your cone; note this is not to scale.

The sizes you have given are as follows:

120’ Long
26’ wide at it’s base.

Using the calculations for a right angle, cause they are easier, we can determine the following:

r = 13’ (half the base)
h= 120’

We can calculate the Angles:

Tan a = r/h

Tan a = 13/120

a = arcTan 13/120 we get 6.18

This is for one side of the right triangle so if we double the result we get the angle of the Apex (Angle a)

a = 12.36

Now the first rule of a triangle in trigonometry is that the sum of all the angles must equal 180°

The angles of a base of a cone triangle will be the same, so as we know the angle of the Apex (Angle a) we can determine the two base angles easily.

180° - 12.36 = 167.64/2 = 83.82

So Angles b & c will be 83.82 each. So we now know the following cone angles:

Angle a = 12.36
Angle b = 83.82
Angle c = 83.82

Now with this info we can determine just how wide the cone would be as it grows from the caster, at the Apex. You mentioned that Sirene was standing 18’ from the doorway when she cast her spell. This means that using the angles that we have, which the cone would keep no matter how long it was until it reached it’s maximum length (120’)

So, we can calculate the size of the base of the cone at 18’ (called X) as such:

Tan 12.36 = X/18

X = Tan 12.36*18

X = 3.94’

So basically, the base of the cone would only be 3.94’ when it reached the doorway which is 18’ away from Sirene.

Sorry, to bore you all, I know your eyes have glazed over by now. It is the Engineer in me.

So, now we can say, the Magic overcomes the Trigonometry and the result is exactly as Tann described. I mean after all, the DM is always right, right?

So ahhh HUH?

So my calculations were wrong ok got that However was the cone smaller then or bigger then I thought it was? And would it have hit the wall on the sides of the door then Ulthok without my 'magical push"

Oh, derp.

Oh, oops. He nearly died... my bad. That's why I kept the recap: for my own forgetfulness.

Well I'm

In the middle of updating it so if anyone wants a copy once I'm done let me know ok

And he died later on but Cor prayed and was granted a very high lvl god like healing spell that saved Conall at that time. I think the only player left from that time is Kyle and up until last week Brianna.

Well

If Trigonometry works in your Fantasy world, the cone of cold would have been only about 4' wide when it reached the doorway. If the doorway is 14' wide it would not have hit the walls beside the doorway and would not have 'splashed' back into the hallway.

See, that is why I didnt want to say anything but you insisted.

Well I'd rather

Know when I screw up so I can try not to do so again later

Next time we have something like this possibility of area effect or large area spells catching the party. I'll check with you at those times to be sure I'm calculating things correctly. Deal?

Sir Sadaar,

Conall Glendower of the House Glendower fought well with only one leg. He did lean to the left for a few days. Then he died, but he got better.

Welcome To Trilogy!!!!

Well gang this isn't a simple game. As Tann has said you are HUGE POWERFUL characters for a game with HUGE POWER Enemies.
We have high highs and low lows. Now know what it's like to die. Tann is the first DM to ever kill one of my characters and I really took it hard. BUT!!!, I sucked it up with help of our players and I moved on and became better at this. (Sure, that's why I got my face froze off, .)
We are in this together so we can share ideas to survive.
Does stratgy and tactics look so bad now?

By talking out some moves first you might be warned about a free action or a possible down side to a spell. Also we have some great players that can catch things. I wish I'd caught that Sirene's spell packed a doubled whammy, I'd ran back to steps dragging Valene. (See my early Q&A on battle math.)

So now we'll heal and fight on, just RP the feelings.

Game ON!!!

Posts.............

SilentOne and I are working on a coordinated post, so it may be a couple more days before ours is up.

I've sent her a reaction from Ulthok to his situation which I may be able to post then add followup to what SilentOne writes. My next section depends on her reaction.

I'd guess we need to organized quickly, it almost seems like a shift change for the badies as first the Orcs emerged and then the Goblins. That still leave what is behind door number three to join the fun and we are quite done with the Goblins.

Healing

So, Siréne has quite a few healing spells prepared. Was planning on hitting Ulthok with a cure serious or cure critical - she did nearly kill him and RP wise she'd likely offer healing as a penance. Don't want to throw a wrench in your plans, so let me know...

Talk About a Wind Burn.........

I posted what I had sent to SilentOne (with some edit corrections), but seeing she is not well and may take a bit to be up to posting I thought it might help others prepare their posts. It only involves Ulthok and Peri so it won't effect other posts.

If anyone tries to speak with Ulthok he will have to communicate through Peri.

Ok Down 1 more

Ok I along with Hammer was informed by Archangel by PM that he would be leaving the Inn and both of our games due to an extended real life lack of internet.

He hopes to return and if I have an opening to play in Trilogy again. So for now we have two NPC's that I will be running unless any of you know of a male Innmate that would be interested in taking over Lothor or Barreel.

Still looking for a few posts before I start writing mine so if you have not posted yet please do.

Sight.....

With the heal from Rayne how quickly will Ulthok get back his sight and how many HP return?

I had figured that with him wearing the gantlets only his face was exposed.
