healing

Until Tann tells us what got destroyed we cannot make a solid plan. Obviously we have spells but items may or may not be around.

Plans

We probably can't make solid plans, especially for healing, before Tann gives us results. But I think we should still be brainstorming possibilities for dealing with the beholders. We tend to be slow and the more discussion we can get going the better. If we have to throw out some plans because something went rusty on us, oh well. But for now I think putting out all the ideas we can to get things rolling is a good idea.

Plan

Plan for beholders might be trey to limit contract to one at a time if possible, maybe going after then rather than waiting. Narrow places might be good so only one can attacks at a time. Our spells can be cast even in halls. Initiative is key. Focus damage on the central eye to kill as fast as possible. Then run like scared rabbits. Lol

One at a Time...........

I like the idea to try to get them one at a time. Leave it to Tann to through several Beholders into this game.

Review the HP sheet and give your ideas on how we could best bring up everyone as much as reasonable. With out rests we will need some HP getters to use after the next battle.

One at a time

One at a time sounds great. But how do we do that? Is there a way to lure them? But that might bring multiples.

Do we sneak through the halls and use mirrors to look around corners? (Or is there another way - say an invisible familiar?) If we see multiples we run quietly, if we see one we attack? Any other ideas? Do we just lurk somewhere where there are corners or a narrow approach? Am I right in thinking that if they were lined up the back ones couldn't use an area effect spell without hitting the ones in front? (Although I'm not sure the freeze ray would affect them. Maybe.)

Wall of Force

Is a wall of force visible? If one was cast in front of a beholder, would they know it? Tann was very clear when describing the demise of poor Peri that it's attacks were area of effect spells. If it wasn't visible, and it did launch attacks, would they rebound back on it?

Is there anything else that could act like a spell mirror?

Also, does each beholder eye roll initiative separately? I ask because if it does might that mean that one eye casts a spell at the wall, but the other eyes, acting at slightly different times, see the result and halt their attacks. But if they all swing at once . . .

Answers & Items lost

Is a wall of force visible? If one was cast in front of a beholder, would they know it? No it’s invisible but I depending on INT I’d give it a detection role

Tann was very clear when describing the demise of poor Peri that it's attacks were area of effect spells. Actually I may have made mistake in saying they were spells. Rather they come from the clown faces and as an eye/breath weapon so they are actually inherent abilities that acts as spells do.

If it wasn't visible, and it did launch attacks, would they rebound back on it? Depends if it made a detection role and knew it was there. If it failed such a role then no it would have no reason NOT to use it’s clown faces to attempt to attack

Also, does each beholder eye roll initiative separately? No it’s three attacks allowed to it all go off at the same time. The reason it was unable to attack a third time using it’s eye was the amount of damage the party had already inflicted upon it

Ok Rayne and Sirene were the worst hit as Rayne lost her main sword and Sirene lost the Amulet of Spell Power. Next was Lother as he lost his boots and is barefoot.

The only item of healing lost was a single Potion Of Extra Healing by Valene.

Go to Stored Stuff....

Time to check the bag of holding for boots Lothor and a melee weapon for Rayne.

There are Boots of Striding & Springing from Bareel's stuff.

Seems to me we put the Wizards boots in the bag.
Boots of Featherweight: Boots allow wearer to ignore encumbrance rules. However main power does not activate till wearer steps of a trap or other device triggered by weight. At that time the boots instantly reduce wearer’s eight to zero negating any such device. The wearer is unaware of any change unless in a windy area. If so wearer will be blown about as if a feather for one round.

It looks like Valene needs boots too.

And there are some swords.

From Page 160:
+2 Long Sword

Cor has a +4 sword no other powers.

Magical Githyanki Swords: 6 Greatswords, 4 longswords, 2 short Zulu type spears.

Rayne could have Ulthok's +2 Short Sword(Idrenal)SM/Med:1d6+3 LG:1d8+3 #ATKS:1/1.(doubles all damage from backstab)

Boots

I seem to remember some boots in the bag. barefoot doesn't seem like a great idea. And here I was thinking about springing and striding at a beholder!

Stuff......

Ok above I've updated items I could find that are still in the bag of holding.

I may still have another list somewhere because I didn't see the Holy Sword.

I'll try to make a complete list of items if Tann and Cor can forward me any notes they have. I feel it would be good to get this updated.

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

We went to a wedding last night and are going to another tonight.
Hope I can write something tomorrow.

My guess is that Ulthok is prone with one HP so I need someone to get him up. As is he can't give himself a potion.
Maybe Cor doing a lay on hands to give him 10 so he can move.

Then I can write.

Who is writing for Valene? She is at -1 and needs something to get her up too.

Should be home around 10 est to see what is written so far.

Ulthok's up

Who wants to take responsibility for filling out the chart of all the healing to be done. We need a plan and should get out of here quickly.

Ody - when you do post, could you put in something about giving Lothor the boots?

Tann - the beholder exploded. Is there enough of a body anywhere to look at or was it literally blown to pieces?

A Week......

How about we ask Tann for a week to figure out the healing?

I just saw that Sirene has a staff that can heal one person without using up a heal spell.

With 64 HP needed per person even the chart I made is still a bit daunting.

If it is as Tann hinted there are several more of these we will need to ration healing.

This beholder near wiped us out with half damage.
