this crazy site is so hopping right now that I missed the update! Now, that is cool. Not so dead after all . . .
Unlike those gibberlings. That was nasty and distasteful.
So, how do we get inland. I assume after all that work that we are walking.
Was the little dragon invisible when the flying things saw it and approached? I think someone said that and I just want to be sure. Any ideas for things to do before we march into the jungle? I suspect 6 nights of pyrotechnics might have given away the advantage of surprise.
GM - given what Peri saw when she flew - is it likely that anything in/at the tower would have seen some hint of all the craziness at the beach? How far is it?
I have this spell memorized once, perhaps it could find us a clean path in? Or perhaps not.
Find the Path
Range: Touch Components: V, S, M
Duration: 1 turn/level Casting Time: 3 rds.
Area of Effect: 1 creature Saving Throw: None
The recipient of this spell can find the shortest, most direct physical route that he is seeking, be it the way into or out of a locale. The locale can be outdoors or under ground, a trap, or even a maze spell. Note that the spell works with respect to locales, not objects or creatures within a locale. Thus, the spell could not find the way to "a forest where a green dragon lives" or to the location of "a hoard of platinum pieces." The location must be in the same plane as the caster. The spell enables the subject to sense the correct direction that will eventually lead him to his destination, indicating at the appropriate times the exact path to follow or physical actions to take. For example, with concentration the spell enables the subject to sense trip wires or the proper word to bypass a glyph. The spell ends when the destination is reached or when one turn for each caster level has elapsed. The spell frees the subject, and those with him, from a maze spell in a single round, and will continue to do so as long as the spell lasts. Note that this divination is keyed to the caster, not his companions, and that, like the find traps spell, it does not predict or allow for the actions of creatures. The spell requires a set of divination counters of the sort favored by the priest--bones, ivory counters, sticks, carved runes, or whatever. The reverse spell, lose the path, makes the creature touched totally lost and unable to find its way for the duration of the spell--although it can be led, of course.

Also my only thought for the ash is that we find a way to fly over it. if we try an blow is away it only caused it to billow an fill the air with micro particles an if we add water it would turn into a giant lye pit... lets just hope it doesn't rain....
I'm not sure there is a good path to use to get there, so I doubt the find path spell would work.
How great of a distance must we travel to get through the ash? I really like the idea of mud to rock for creating a path, but I think we might need a lot of copies of the spell to make it all of the way across.
What about flying over? Can an enlarged Peri move us? If so we could not take off from the shore as a enlarged dragon wings would probably kick up a bit of dust. That would mean getting picked up from the boat - which would probably also mean losing the boat. Unless Lothor was the last to go and he brought the boat to shore and then swam back out to sea (without armor, of course) to get picked up. Not sure about his swimming skills. Can we just teleport across? Did the mages ever get that far inland? Or could they fly across to get familiar with the territory, than come back and teleport others?
That would work - the rain, I mean. What did he say, 8 inches deep? We'd be very muddy by the time we got there, but it shouldn't be so deep it doesn't work. Or mud to rock would work if the distance was enough. It might be worth a cast or two even if it only got us most of the way as I can just imagine our DM finding a way to turn this into a very unhappy round of mud wrestling.
Is there a reason why teleport isn't an easy answer? We were going to teleport to the island, why not within it? At most the spellcasters need to fly over the ash to know the landing location, right? Or am I missing something? can they teleport all of us? I'm just assuming they can since that was an option to get here.
teleport/levitate sounds to easy,theirs got to be some way to think around the ash issue. it seems like such a mundane issue,makes me leery on the twist.(sorry my brain is coming up with scary stuff like a ash/glob monsters, or you know sharks with lazerbeams or incendiary bats...hee hee ) is their a slight modification we could make with our cloaks? make soaked masks or something?could we modify goggles?
