Really? Well, now that is interesting. I may have to edit my post a bit, although what I wrote may fit even better this way.
**Before I forget again, welcome to Boo Boo and welcome back to Astrid!
to the group - I strongly think we should do as Lothor suggest and try to destroy the gems. Ulthok suggested disintegrate earlier. Actually, Ody did. So Lothor wouldn't know that or know the spell options. But he wants them gone. Then where do we go? Should we try back to the front door? We haven't gone back there yet.
Also - Tann- I asked a question in the game post I'm curious about. We know the beast didn't go back into the tapestry, but what shape is the tapestry in? Tatters from its ripping exit? Or just blank where it was, but otherwise whole?
i'm happy to be back an stepping into play Valene. thank you to all who welcomed me back an hello to all the new inmates. this looks to be fun an all the craziness that Tann can muster that is the lifeblood of trilogy!
There is a thing about Ulthok, he REALLY likes gems. He likes gems better than gold. For him to pay for something using one of his gems is a real effort. So with the danger seeming to be over for the moment it will be very difficult to get him to destroy them now.
Alyia knows Valene. I believe Alyia joined while we were in the City just before we went to the flying castle. So they fought together a little in the Castle before Valene was captured.joined back on page 191.
I chose to have Rayne heal Ulthok with 3 uses of cure light wounds (2 from her bow and 1 from her 1st level spells) for 24 hp. I figured that Sirene and Cor had enough spells for themselves, and to save Rayne's limited number in case of a disaster.
As for Valene, we were aware of her in the floating castle (as we found traces of her in the prison if I recall correctly), so that gives us something of reference at least for when she tells her story.

Well, we need to DO something. Just posting hello to Valene just requires another post from her - and we really already have all of that information in the Q&A section. What would Tann do with those posts? Yes, she should say why we need to hurry, but that still leaves us doing nothing. What should we do in a hurry?
Where do we go? Down which hallway?
Also - the gems. Lothor gave a long speech about destroying them, but nobody responded to it. I know Valene's appearance is the big surprise, but this does need a decision. Ulthok said he "really likes gems." Lothor "really likes not leaving massive threats out there to pop in and attack him at any moment." He would very strongly push Ulthok on this issue. He'd even offer to buy him some gems when we get back, wherever we get back to. But he wouldn't drop this issue. But he would respect the group - if the group actually made their wishes known.

Just as Ulthok let Lothor destroy the skull because it is his nature, Ulthok will keep the gems as it is his nature. They are magic and will have a purpose sometime. But if it become apparent and they draw a danger again then he will act.
As for moving forward, that was part of the reason question of healing. Did the party need time to rest and heal. So far we have staged our moves and acted too rashly. I'd guess Tann and Astrid have worked a little to set the scene and there is still some information not said. Got to ask. Ulthok will do that.
