Don has joined the game.

[Don] Howdy

Sedlack has joined the game.

[Sedlack] Hi, Don. Hi, Mike.

[Don] We seem to be the only ones here.

[Don] But then, we're not starting for another hour.

[Sedlack] Indeed.

[Master] Woop, hey.

[Master] Sorry, was on a different window.

[Master] Hey, Chris -- I know you created some custom expressions for your spells at one point.

[Master] Are they still working?

[Master] I'm tired of this green; I'm changing colors.

[Don] It's not easy being green.

[Master] Let's try this.

[Master] MUCH better.

[Master] Here yeller!

[Master] Come back yeller!

[Master] Best doggone dog in the West.

[Master] Heh.

[Master] No clues for you.

[Sedlack] Let me look on those spell expressions...

[Sedlack] I can't select them.

[Master] Figgety fuck.

[Master] I think they got wiped in the fucking upgrade.

[Master] And they're gone from all the backups, too.

[Sedlack] I believe this is because I didn't put anything for "# Memorized"

[Master] oh

[Master] hee

[Master] ok

[Master] Lemme pull up your char sheet.

[Master] Go get 'em.

[Master] Yay!

[Sedlack] Aedean: Error parsing "{10+5": kLoOgeWerks.hN: unexpected character: {10+5

[Master] Ok kewl.

[Master] heh.

[Master] I'll fix that one.

[Sedlack] Oops.

[Master] markers

[Master] The dollar-sign markers

[Master] include the pluses.

[Master] jas i'll fix it

Client has joined the game.

[Sedlack] Level has a plus in it?

[Master] I think so.

[Master] jas

[Don] It seems like they've made a lot of little UI improvements.

Angie/James has joined the game.

[Don] I approve.

[Master] Which spell were you trying to cast...?

[Sedlack] UI?

[Sedlack] Flame Strike

[Master] ok


[Don] user interface. :)

[Sedlack] Oh, right.

[Angie/James] howdy, Angie isn't here yet.

[Master] That's a weird fucking error.

[Master] Aedean: Error parsing "{10+5": kLoOgeWerks.jZ: unexpected character: {10+5

[Angie/James] Windowze sucks. The system locked up just as I was trying to connect.

[Master] heh

[Master] Aedean: Error parsing "{10+5": kLoOgeWerks.jZ: unexpected character: {10+5

[Jeff] So does Roger think Shottamip is a halfling?

[Don] What is our sound situation?

[Master] Jeff -- We'll get there.

Jeff is receiving the map...

Jeff has received the map.

[Angie/James] I had started the RW server on my machine, but it doesn't appear to be working. :-(

[Master] Aedean: Error parsing "{10+5": kLoOgeWerks.jZ: unexpected character: {10+5

[Don] What is our sound situation?

[Don] What is our sound situation?

[Don] hmm.

[Master] Spell DC I think...

[Don] the non-docked chat is still broken...

[Master] Aedean: Flame Strike: (DC=20) A column of flame descends from the heavens, doing 27 damage

[Master] ROKK

[Don] James: yes, got the email, now what? Do we just run without sound?

[Sedlack] Cool. What was the problem?

[Master] Stuff in the Spell DC slot is automatically bracketized.

[Master] So there were 2 brackets, confusing the program.

[Sedlack] Aha.

[Master] L is not a plus

[Master] jas

[Angie/James] Dunno, I'd just as soon run without sound for now. Unless someone else can set up a server.

[Master] L is not a plus

[Master] heh

[Master] dollar-sign L is not a plus.

[Master] James -- nah, you've got the FATTEST PIPE here.

[Sedlack] I'm glad L is not a plus, or I have to change a crapload of spell expressions...

[Angie/James] Unfortunately, I'm 2 hours away from the server

[Master] Though I wouldn't mind if you took a crack at installing Ogg Vorbis. You and Jared could work together....

[Master] OH!

[Master] YOu're in Milwaukee.

[Master] Der.

[Master] Ok brb

[Master] I am away from the keyboard.

[Sedlack] I am away from the keyboard.

[Jeff] Man, what's Dralafi doing all the way over there?

Angie/James is receiving the map...

Angie/James has received the map.

[Angie/James] that's a good question.

[Master] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] I think that a major movie production of the Iliad should take place,

[Master] just so taht we can get Nicole Kidman as Athena in while she's still got hte look.

[Don] I'm going to go get a sandwich so I don't starve to death while we're playing. ;)

[Master] Wise.

[Don] I am away from the keyboard.

[Sedlack] I am back at the keyboard.

[Sedlack] They are making a major motion picture out of the Iliad

[Jeff] The connection I was running the RW base station on before has been upgraded, if we need a plan b

[Master] CHris, is Nicole involved?

[Master] Jeff, ?

[Master] You have a FATTER PIPE?

[Master] Master: I am eating baby carrots

[Jeff] Ohhh, yeah

[Master] Oh, and Jeff -- do you still have that log from the Prelude?

[Master] interesting.

[Jeff] No, I never saved one

[Sedlack] Don't know, Mike...I'm pretty sure it's still in preproduction

[Master] Sorry, thoguht it was you.

[Master] ok kewl.

[Master] Jared is currently fighting with his job and will join us ASAP.

[Master] Does anyone here have SEBBY's number?

[Angie/James] no

Tamora has joined the game.

[Tamora] Good morning, all.

[Master] found it

[Angie/James] Oh, so that's why you were talking about Nicole Kidman

[Master] SEBBY will be joining us.

[Master] heh

[Angie/James] I had to zoom way in to see.

Brian has joined the game.

[Master] SEBBY!

[Brian] heya

[Angie/James] SEBBY!!!!!

[Brian] i'm going to run out real quick and grab something to eat

[Brian] i'll be back by the time we start

[Master] Sure thing.

[Brian] am i showing up in the campaign window? i can't see myself

[Master] You're there, I see you.

[Master] Aric is in the north part of the map.

[Angie/James] yes, you're there

[Angie/James] BTW, the incomplete campaign log is at:

[Brian] er, i mean is "brian" showing up in the window marked "Campaign" on the left

[Master] Welcome to PEace and Love INcorporated.

[Master] Brian -- yepper.

[Master] Jeff, you wanna set up some Roger Wilco Lovvin?

[Brian] ok, weird. must not show you yourself then. i thought i saw myself there last time. maybe it's a 1.7.0 change

[Master] shrug


[Brian] i had considered creating an IRC channel for emergencies (klooge crash, etc) ... any interest?

[Master] Jeff, you getting that?

[Jeff] Hear you

[Master] Let's do the Roger Wilco for backup.

[Brian] i hear you

[Brian] hopefully RW won't crash as often

[Brian] sounds ok right now

[Angie/James] dunno, can hear you OK for now.

[Brian] thank you

[Brian] anyway, be back

[Sedlack] I hear you

[Master] background noise being transmitted now.

[Master] Sweet, nourishing Infosoc.

[Angie/James] yes

[Master] Trying to keep the channel open

[Angie/James] Angie will be a little late, BTW.

[Sedlack] Sounds like a fan or a motor to me

[Master] Snif!

[Sedlack] But if that means I won't be able to hear "Knife and A Fork", so much the better

[Master] 19 MINUTES

[Angie/James] Well, only like 15 minutes. If we start on time, I'll just fill her in.

[Master] ok

[Sedlack] Velkyna: Tumble: ** MODIFIED BY: SKILL (0) ** (d20+210) [10+210] 220

[Angie/James] Arkady: Reflex: (d20+11) [16+11] 27

[Master] heh

[Don] hey mike, by 'prelude' you mean our last gaming session?

[Master] Yes, please.

[Master] Actually, I mean the stuff in the Wizard's Tower

[Sedlack] Velkyna: Pick Pockets: ** MODIFIED BY: SKILL (+0) ** (d20+15+0) [8+15+0] 23

[Angie/James] Lia: Listen: ** MODIFIED BY: SKILL (0) ** (d20+100) [7+100] 107

[Master] Don: Yes please.

[Master] jas

[Master] Try it now.

[Jeff] Roger: Alchemy: (d20+15) [18+15] 33

[Sedlack] Aedean: Flame Strike: (DC=(10+5+5) [10+5+5] 20) A column of flame descends from the heavens, doing (9d6) [(2+4+4+1+3+1+3+3+1)] 22 damage

[Don] oops, well, just sent mine too. :)

[Angie/James] Praxis: Hide (forrested area): (d20+20) [10+20] 30

[Sedlack] Hmmm....

[Angie/James] didn't do too hot on that roll Cris

[Angie/James] Chris.

[Sedlack] Hey, Mike. What's Aedean's Str right now? 6?

[Sedlack] Aedean: Flame Strike: (** MODIFIED BY: WIS (+4) ** DC=(10+9+5) [10+9+5] 24) A column of flame descends from the heavens, doing (9d6) [(4+6+2+5+1+6+1+6+4)] 35 damage

[Angie/James] I don't belive Aedean got restored since that last fight with the shadows, yes?

[Don] I'm in RW now, btw

[Sedlack] He got partially restored (He had a LR ready)

[Angie/James] Ah, very good.


[Angie/James] what's wrong

[Master] OK JAS

[Sedlack] Aedean: Flame Strike: (** MODIFIED BY: WIS (-1) ** DC=(10+4+5) [10+4+5] 19) A column of flame descends from the heavens, doing (9d6) [(5+2+6+5+5+2+2+3+5)] 35 damage

[Don] ???


[Master] Okay, the licensing for Klooge just got fucked up.

[Don] !

[Master] I can only accept 6 clients.

[Master] FUCK

[Sedlack] Fuck, indeed

[Angie/James] Well, we could drive to chi-town and share one with Joe. Take a couple hours though.

[Master] Fucketty fuck

[Sedlack] Aedean: Attack 1: Mace of Disruption +1 [1] hits AC: ((d20+8)) [(12+8)] 20

[Don] How many were you supposed to be able to accept?

[Sedlack] Aedean: Attack 1: Mace of Disruption +1 [1] hits AC: ((d20+8)) [(1+8)] 9 [CRITICAL MISS]

[Don] Hey, what's the resolution you need for an icon?

[Joe] Nice.

[Jared] I WILL HAXX0r j00!

[Master] ok

[Master] To recap for the larger group:

[Joe] Now, who's the buttcheese who has our sword?

[Master] "And so, House Estin's champions visit me during the wild storm."

[Angie/James] My sword, My sword

[Brian] i say we just kill them and hide the bodies


[Master] Arkady: I am the bearer

[Brian] ok, sorry, begining IC

[Master] "Reach forth your hand and claim your destiny."

[Master] Arkady reaches forward to take the handle, takes a deep breath, and closes his hand...

[Master] around another man's hand.

[Master] He looks up, astonished, to see a half-elven man grasping the hilt!

[Master] (short pause)

[Don] hey

[Joe] Arkady and Defthon, sittin' in a tree...

[Master] There is a blinding flash of lightning and thunder, and the floor crumbles beneath you.

[Joe] I tumble.

[Master] (This is for the Defthon I group)

[Brian] i tumble

[Brian] CURSES

[Master] End of adventure.

[Master] Epilogue:

[Joe] (bwah ha!)

[Master] You find yourself in a rough-hewn cavern, standing behind some sort of altar.

[Master] The hand which Defthon used to grasp the sword is being held by . . . someone else.

[Don] OOC: can everybody please right-click your icon and select "chat as ..."? It'll make this a lot easier.

[Master] Behind that person is a motley group of some six additional adventurers. They look tough.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Frames

[Jared] your net sucks.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] best we could get

[Velkyna (Joe)] Feh feh

[Aric (Brian)] i keep having to restart RW too

[Master] Okay, let's give up on RW.

[Master] Carpal pain

[Velkyna (Joe)] Hokay.

[Master] hwg

[Master] Okay, Defthon, you've obviously just travelled a great distance, and some schmuck is holding your hand.

[Master] He is awful cute for a human, though.

[Velkyna (Joe)] He's actually a JUKE

[Velkyna (Joe)] BOX

[Velkyna (Joe)] HERO

[Aric (Brian)] mike, i was kidding about the yaoi...

[Master] Arkady, the holy mother of all anticlimaxes has just hit you.

[Defthon (Don)] ha. I let go of his hand

[Master] hee

[Defthon (Don)] Who are you?

[Master] Other way around, Don.

[Defthon (Don)] What just happened?

[Master] His hand is on top of yours.

[Master] Your hand is on the sword.

[Defthon (Don)] ...and where are we?

[Angie/James] Ark: so who's sword is this?

[Master] Okay, everybody move 1 round's worth.

[Master] Who has weapons ready?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I do

[Angie/James] Lia does.

[Master] That's nice, Joe.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] My hands are free. That's dangerous enough.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Tee hee

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm sneaky.

[Aric (Brian)] i had my kama out

[Master] Roger/Defthon/Dralafi:

[Jared] I think vel teleported. I hate when that happens. I tumble.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I had my short sword out from the golem fight.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Also, I believe I'm hovering a few feet for visibility.

[Velkyna (Joe)] (back to where I was)

[Master] The group moves in behind the guy holding the sword to support him. They are drawn but not immediately threatening.

[Master] What are you doing, Roger and Dralafi?

[Roger (Jeff)] I cast a plague on both Arkady's houses

[Angie/James] Ark: I have two houses?

[Master] That can't end well.

[Dralafi (Jared)] Blinking, and moving the bow back and forth amongst the target rich environment

[Roger (Jeff)] No? What about a good poxing?

[Master] Ok, hang on a sec.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel will activate her ring and go invisible.

[Angie/James] Ark: so are you the bearer?

[Master] Does Roger say that? "A plague on both your houses."?

[Aric (Brian)] do i have to prepare for deflect arrows?

[Master] Brian: No.

[Master] Arkady asks this quetsin of Defthon, obviously.

[Roger (Jeff)] Okay, okay. Roger ambles casually over to Arkady

[Roger (Jeff)] and peers at him curiously

[Master] The halfling, apparently oblivious to the tension of the room, slides by Defthon and begins to examine Arkady.

[Defthon (Don)] did I miss something? what question did Ark ask?

[Angie/James] Ark: Hello, so who are you all?

[Master] Arkady, Diplomacy check.

[Master] Defthon, Sense Motive.

[Angie/James] Arkady: diplomacy: (d20+13) [15+13] 28

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel will activate her ring and turn invisible.

[Velkyna (Joe)] (as stated)

[Master] Thanks, sorry.

[Defthon (Don)] is that int or cha

[Velkyna (Joe)] wis

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It's wis

[Master] InvisiVel!

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: WIS check: (d20+2) [11+2] 13

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (and I'm always happy to hear that someone has no ranks in SM)

[Velkyna (Joe)] I may, and don't hold me to this, shout "woo".

[Angie/James] Ohhh.... that was a bad one. Very punny.

[Master] Defthon, you are immediately put at ease by Arkady's honest confusion and excellent choice of words.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel is going to sheathe her short sword and draw her loaded crossbow.

[Master] Dralafi, you find that the idea of shooting one of this nice man's friends is becoming rapidly more unpleasant.

[Angie/James] Does Defthon seem like a paladin type?

[Master] Roger, he's a cutie.

[Master] What's a paladin type?

[Dralafi (Jared)] I lower the bow but stay readyish

[Angie/James] You know, a big cross on his chest, or that sort of thing.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Do we still have the Message spell up?

[Master] Yes, he is wearing a holy symbol.

[Master] Yes.

[Master] The symbol is unfamiliar, however.

[Defthon (Don)] We're a group of people hired to rescue a wizard... but we seem to have been transported somewhere else.

[Defthon (Don)] Where are we?

[Angie/James] Arkady: lets go of the sword

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Can I identify it?

[Jared] Does he have a jesus fish on the back of his car, is what I want to know.

[Master] Arkady, gimme a Sense Motive.

[Defthon (Don)] Do I have the sword?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel Messages to Arkday "DO NOT BELIEVE HIS LIES"

[Master] Aedean, gimme a Knowledge: Religious.

[Angie/James] Arkady: sense motive: (d20+11) [8+11] 19

[Master] Defthon, yes.

[Aric (Brian)] ooh, maybe you can add another symbol to your collection

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Knowledge (religion): (d20+3) [7+3] 10

[Master] Aedean: No fucking clue.

[Master] There are some similarities, maybe . . . you'd want to spend some time looking at it more.

[Master] Take 20 or something.

[Angie/James] Ark: You're in Serendair now, the southern continent.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Well, of course, I would. It's an unusual holy symbol

[Defthon (Don)] southern continent...?

[Angie/James] Ark: Serendair was block from the rest of the world a while back.

[Master] There is no southern continent. The wyld storms prevent passage to what must be the site of some horrible cataclysm.

[Master] :)

[Master] (Common knowledge)

[Defthon (Don)] I have no idea what southern continent you are talking about.

[Defthon (Don)] There is no southern continent. Where are we?

[Roger (Jeff)] I roll my eyes

[Aric (Brian)] are we totally giving up on RW? i'll close it if so (just static right now)

[Roger (Jeff)] We teleported silly

[Master] Yes, give up on RW.

[Jared] Brian: its dead.

[Angie/James] Ark: the continent was blocked off by the Gods, that's why there are the storms

[Defthon (Don)] Interesting.

[Aric (Brian)] things look calmer, i put away my kama

[Angie/James] Ark: We're from the north too, I was from Brannik (a small island on the west coast)

[Master] The enormous half-orc puts away his weapon.

[Defthon (Don)] How did you get here?

[Angie/James] Lia goes down to Defcon 2 (was at 4)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (Defcon 2 is more alert than 4)

[Roger (Jeff)] I am bored and start examining the altar for magic items

[Angie/James] I thought it was the other way around

[Velkyna (Joe)] No.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Defcon 1 is full nuclear war.

[Master] I'll back Joe up.

[Master] The halfling starts wandering into the main room...

[Angie/James] Anyway, Lia's not so threatening now.

[Angie/James] Ark: we were transported here somehow, about half a year ago.

[Angie/James] Mike: how long has it been game-time-wise?

[Master] Three or four months.

[Master] I don't recall exactly.

[Angie/James] OK, we'll go with that.

[Defthon (Don)] (I'm trying to see into the room)

[Defthon (Don)] So on a more local level, where are we?

[Defthon (Don)] Is this a temple or something?

[Angie/James] Lia looks at the new halfling.

[Master] Okay, Lia and Roger converse in their own ways.

[Angie/James] Ark: we're in Dessit, the biggest city of the continent.

[Master] Everyone, please describe yourselves physically

[Master] Except for Vel.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Actually, we're in the basement of a castle

[Angie/James] Ark: This is the basement of d'Constantine. This is his keep.

[Angie/James] Lia is a half-elf with a really big sword.

[Angie/James] Arkady is a mild-mannered traveller-sort.

[Aric (Brian)] Aric is a half-orc wearing the simple clothing of a monk.

[Master] Full plate armor, red hair on Lia.

[Roger (Jeff)] I am three feet tall and wearing a scholar's outfit

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Human Male, 27. 6 feet tall, 180 lb, brown eyes/hair. Not wearing any armor currently, looks pretty tired

[Jared] Dral is a largish (for an elf) elf, with black hair, holding a bow, wearing a shimmery chain shirt, and being laconic.

[Master] ok brb

[Master] I am away from the keyboard.

[Angie/James] Just noticed the animated flaming sword, very nice.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Mace in hand; wearing a holy symbol

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shattamip is about 4 feet tall, wearing a bandanna over her hair and boots that have sprouted wings. She is a couple feet up.

[Jared] 27.6 feet is pretty tall...

[Angie/James] Lia is looking a little worn too.

[Defthon (Don)] I'm a bit tall for a half-elf, slightly shorter than human (male) average; really good looking. I'm wearing really well-fashioned chain mail, I have a big-ass bow and a quiver of arrows strapped to my back, swords at my side, and at the moment I seem to be wielding the new sword.

[Defthon (Don)] I am, as has been noted, wearing a holy symbol.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 27 is the age. 6 starts a new sentence

[Master] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] Defthon is currently standing with his hand on the pommel of the sword.

[Angie/James] We have enought pointy-eared guys for a star trek convention

[Angie/James] Arkady: so what's the scoop with the sword?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Tsohanoai'i?

[Angie/James] Arkady to Defthon: so are you supposed to be the bearer?

[Defthon (Don)] What the hell is he cackling about?

[Defthon (Don)] Anyway, we were in this wizard's keep, and the sword spoke to me.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] What did it say?

[Defthon (Don)] Something about "seren's folly", and "house estin", and then it said, "WHERE IS THE BEARER?"

[Defthon (Don)] But only I heard it... when I took it, the floor caved in and you were holding my hand.

[Angie/James] Ark: ok, that kind of lines up with what we've heard

[Defthon (Don)] "heard"?

[Master] What is the disposition of the sword currently? It's still in its pillar of fire, yes?

[Defthon (Don)] you're asking us?

[Master] Well, what did Defthon do?

[Angie/James] Ark: Well, Seren's folly caused the continent to be blocked off.

[Defthon (Don)] I put my hand around it and got teleported here.

[Master] with it, you know?

[Master] Okay, cool.

[Angie/James] Ark: House Estin is who we're working for.

[Master] So your hand is stil o it, and it is still in the pillar.

[Defthon (Don)] I'm still gripping the hilt

[Defthon (Don)] I guess, yeah.

[Master] roger

[Master] Er

[Master] Got it

[Angie/James] What does Arkady think of these guys overall?


[Angie/James] Arkady: sense motive: (d20+11) [10+11] 21

[Master] They aren't particularly evil or anything, and Defthon's definitely a paladin, so there's some trustworthiness there.

[Defthon (Don)] I draw the sword from the flame.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Actually, the sword IS the flame.

[Master] There's a bit of both.

[Master] The blade shines with a near-blinding light in the tight cave.

[Master] BEHOLD


[Aric (Brian)] well, that last several minutes we spent arguing over who should take it were sure time well spent

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna wept.


[Angie/James] Lia: good for you.

[Angie/James] Angie objects to that last statement I put in her mouth


[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Hope you weren't too attached to your free will.

[Angie/James] Lia is very pleased.


[Master] It then falls silent.

[Master] The blade becomes normal for a Sun Sword, glowing with some vigor, but

[Angie/James] Arkady: so do I get anything?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Great. So now we've got two swords with two party votes.

[Master] can be looked upon and not obviously flaming.

[Angie/James] Lia steps forward to greed the paladin and his party.

[Aric (Brian)] now defthon, on the other hand...

[Velkyna (Joe)] NICE.

[Defthon (Don)] I look down at the sword in a trance, and

[Angie/James] Lia: why don't we get out of here now?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna hops down from the ceiling and turns visible.

[Master] The pillar of flame fades.

[Defthon (Don)] then pull out my other sword from its scabbard and sheath Tsohanoai there.

[Aric (Brian)] aric mutters something about why magicians always have to be so flashy with their stuff

[Master] Spellcraft checks for everyone who has it.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Spellcraft: (d20+5) [4+5] 9

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Spellcraft: (d20+16) [17+16] 33

[Roger (Jeff)] Roger: Spellcraft: (d20+9) [5+9] 14

[Velkyna (Joe)] YOU THINK YOU'RE BAD.

[Master] Dang.


[Defthon (Don)] I'm trying to figure out what to with my old sword now :P

[Master] Shottamip: Someone teleported in nearby.

[Master] Defthon looks faintly confusedly at his excellent magical bastard sword which has now been supplanted.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Hey guys, I just felt someone else show up on a teleport spell!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Joyous

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Were we expecting more company?

[Velkyna (Joe)] We should be leaving.

[Angie/James] Arkady: Let's get out of here.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I concur

[Dralafi (Jared)] Not one of your friends, then....

[Angie/James] Ark: do we want to sneak out?

[Master] Eventually it occurs to Defthon to put it in the bag of holding.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I can scout ahead.

[Velkyna (Joe)] ...?

[Defthon (Don)] Right, except that would break the bag and I'd lose everything in it.

[Angie/James] Praxis will follow Vel.

[Velkyna (Joe)] By the way, you notice a human woman who wasn't there earlier.

[Velkyna (Joe)] She's petite and lithe (5'4" and about 100 lbs.)

[Velkyna (Joe)] Dressed mundanely in loose-fitting drab-colored garb.

[Master] Nah, it wouldn't hurt the bag.

[Defthon (Don)] If you say so.

[Velkyna (Joe)] She's got a crossbow and no apparent armor.

[Master] Only if you attacked it form the outside. :)

[Angie/James] Or from the inside.

[Master] But effort would have to be made.

[Defthon (Don)] Ok, we'll run with that, then. I put the sword in the bag. It disappears.

[Aric (Brian)] (the bag)

[Master] Spellcraft check for those with it...

[Master] hee

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Spellcraft: (d20+5) [19+5] 24

[Roger (Jeff)] Roger: Spellcraft: (d20+9) [2+9] 11

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna will activate her ring and go near the exit/entrance.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Spellcraft: (d20+16) [13+16] 29

[Angie/James] Angie: it is usually a bad sign when the DM is amused.

[Master] I was amused with Brian, you're safe.

[Velkyna (Joe)] She'll try to peer out/listen.

[Master] Somebody just tossed off a few spells in quick succession.

[Master] At least 40 feet away, probably straight up.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Crap

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Something going on up there.

[Master] None as powerful as the Teleport.

[Defthon (Don)] I'm not really getting a clear view of the map here. Can we get a bit more revealed?

[Angie/James] I'm pretty low on spells, BTW.

[Aric (Brian)] i say we check it out. you three want to join us?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We'd better go fetch the carpets, before they get taken away

[Master] Vel, spot check.

[Master] Don, this is the whole map.

[Aric (Brian)] we're in a sub-basement type thing

[Master] A little more space...

[Velkyna (Joe)] Fuck, how do I roll dice with 1.7.0?

[Master] ?

[Defthon (Don)] Oh ok.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I don't have the usual tree of options when I right click on Vel.

[Master] !!

[Master] I see.

[Master] That's new.

[Master] jas

[Velkyna (Joe)] I assume everyone else has them ... ?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Mine's still there

[Dralafi (Jared)] I have Roll dice -> at the bottom

[Defthon (Don)] Yeah, mine's fine

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yeah, but there used to be a list of all my skills and attacks and shit under "roll dice" .

[Shottamip (Tamora)] yes -- you can right-click on everyone in this, you don't actually have limited power to your character

[Velkyna (Joe)] Now there's nothing.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Well, then check me out. Am I high?

[Master] You're good now.

[Master] Weird bug.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] your stuff is gone

[Aedean (Sedlack)] No, Joe, yours seem to be gone

[Master] I can see them now...

[Velkyna (Joe)] Mike: I'm still not seeing anything.

[Master] Re-sending stuff...

[Defthon (Don)] Check your char sheet---are they there?

[Master] Yeah, it's all there.

[Master] Joe, you should be good now.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Spot: (d20+10) [10+10] 20

[Velkyna (Joe)] There we go.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Thanks.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Sorry, guys.

[Angie/James] sokay

[Master] no prob

[Master] Okay, there's nobody on the level above, Vel thinks.

[Master] Shall we transfer there?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yep

[Defthon (Don)] sure

[Angie/James] OK

[Velkyna (Joe)] Let's go.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] ok

[Dralafi (Jared)] make it so.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I'm staying in the middle of the group.

Joe is receiving the map...

Joe has left the game.

Joe has received the map.

[Defthon (Don)] uh oh.

[Master] Joe just died...

[Defthon (Don)] Thbbt.

[Master] Let's wait and see how much damage was done.

Joe has joined the game.

[Dralafi (Jared)] MAN DOWN

[Master] Heythere.

[Master] That was irritating.

[Velkyna (Joe)] NYARGH

[Aric (Brian)] i still have the old map

[Master] Here's hoping it was an isolated incident.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna will quietly dart ahead.

[Master] jas

[Master] ok move silently.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Move Silently: (d20+21) [15+21] 36

[Velkyna (Joe)] BOYZ.

[Master] Excellent.

[Master] There's no one here.

[Master] Everyone else?

[Aric (Brian)] got it

[Velkyna (Joe)] She'll go over the to the stairs and peer/listen up.

[Angie/James] Arkady targets Lia. Distance: 9'00"

[Master] Spot/Listen.

[Velkyna (Joe)] "So far so good, nothing guys."

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Listen: (d20+2) [8+2] 10

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Listen: (d20+9) [4+9] 13

[Master] Vel only

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Spot: (d20+10) [11+10] 21

[Angie/James] Hmph, all my spells are gone.

[Master] Odd...

[Master] jas

[Master] Okay, Vel, you don't see anyone, but you are hearing somtehing from the levels above.

[Angie/James] I wanted to target Lia, so I could heal her.

[Master] The sound comes down the spiral staircase.

[Velkyna (Joe)] From the second floor?

[Aric (Brian)] i'm going to move silently to join vel

[Velkyna (Joe)] (via message): Aric, I'm just by the stairs"

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Move Silently: (d20+8) [19+8] 27

[Velkyna (Joe)] Brian ... down and to the left.

[Velkyna (Joe)] There you go.

[Aric (Brian)] sorry, was going to where you were

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm quick like that.

[Master] ok I gotta play wth Arkady for a sec.

[Velkyna (Joe)] S'fine. Need a potty break anyway.

[Joe] I am away from the keyboard.

[Master] kewl

[Master] James, are you editing Arkady?

[Jared] Im gonna move to backup the big guy.

[Angie/James] I was

[Sedlack] Aedean targets Lia. Distance: 8'09"

[Defthon (Don)] You need to click off the field you were editing, click save, and click View whenever you're done editing

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Cure Moderate Wounds: (** MODIFIED BY: WIS (-1) ** DC=(10+4+2) [10+4+2] 16) (0-(2d8+9)) [0-((1+7)+9)] -17 HP recovered

[Shottamip (Tamora)] No need to stay on the stairs

[Master] Any luck, Arkady?

[Defthon (Don)] bathroom break, brb

[Aric (Brian)] ack! don't try to heal me, aedean!

[Don] I am away from the keyboard.

[Angie/James] no, they still don't show up on the list. I added a new one and it isn't there either.

[Master] ok jas

[Aedean (Sedlack)] The negative is because it treats healing as negative damage

[Aric (Brian)] ah

[Angie/James] Chris, how long does that endurance spell last?

[Joe] I am back at the keyboard.

[Aric (Brian)] thought maybe if you got a critical fail on a heal check, you'd hurt or something :)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 9 hours

[Master] Got it!

[Angie/James] OK, no problem.

[Master] Put in -- in the number memorized column.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (Did Lia's HP adjust?)

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna will mention to the old party via Message that she hears some commotion up the stairs.

[Master] See if that does it.

[Master] Remember, Lia's Con is still down some points.

[Don] I am back at the keyboard.

[Angie/James] mind if I just roll it manually?

[Master] Not at this time, no.

[Master] But what's Lia's new max now?

[Aric (Brian)] A flip of the ol' kLoOge Coin results in: Tails

[Angie/James] Lia gets back two points on first cure.

[Aric (Brian)] sorry, wondering what the new button did :)

[Angie/James] Lia's max is now 63

[Master] Lia's hit points adjusted to 35 (-17) - Heavily Wounded

[Master] Whoops.

[Angie/James] Send roll, 6 hp restored to lia.

[Master] She's up to max now.

[Master] ok

[Aedean (Sedlack)] That was a Spiritual Weapon Iused, BTW

[Master] Understood.

[Angie/James] How did Lia get max 90 HP?

[Master] I just work here, man.

[Master] That's what it says.

[Master] That seems . . . excessive.

[Velkyna (Joe)] She's a great bronze savage.

[Angie/James] Lia should have max 72, as far as Angie can tell.

[Master] A pseudodragon appears and lands next to Roger.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Not Praxis?

[Roger (Jeff)] !

[Master] Fixed.

[Master] Yes Praxis.

[Angie/James] Yes, it is Praxis.

[Velkyna (Joe)] With everyone in a better position to cover Vel, she'll creep up the stairs to figure out what's going on.

[Master] ok jas

[Angie/James] Praxis: so do you have a familiar too?

[Sedlack] Aedean no longer targets Lia.

[Aric (Brian)] i want to smell, see if i can detect whatever it is that's up there

[Master] Vel doesn't see anything . . .

[Angie/James] Praxis is doing that telepathically, so as to not make noise.

[Master] Joe, do you have the map?

[Roger (Jeff)] Yes, he's in my haversack. (I turn around)

[Angie/James] Arkady no longer targets Lia.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Shit, we're getting lightning storms and brownouts here in NE Chicago.

[Master] Fucked up.

[Defthon (Don)] I'm staring at the pseudodragon

[Velkyna (Joe)] If I suddenly drop out, assume I've lost power and NPC me.

[Master] WEll, if you die out, we'll know what's up.

[Angie/James] Praxis: What? How does he breath in there?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Right.

[Aric (Brian)] ditto for me

[Defthon (Don)] short description of what a pseudodragon is, someone?

[Aric (Brian)] but i have a ups to handle brownouts

[Angie/James] Praxis is just a little dragon, kinda cute.

[Master] Joe, Vel is poking around?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel's going to peek out to the ballroom.

[Defthon (Don)] huh

[Master] Spot check

[Velkyna (Joe)] (yeah)

[Roger (Jeff)] (His head sticks out of a side pouch)

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Spot: (d20+10) [17+10] 27

[Master] Nothing.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yeah, baby.

[Master] Listen check

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Listen: (d20+2) [12+2] 14

[Master] Someone is talking one floor up.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel mentions via message that there's someone on the second floor.

[Defthon (Don)] just to the old party or to us too?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel will then slip up the straight stairs to the west.

[Angie/James] Can she understand what's being said?

[Velkyna (Joe)] (Message is currently with the old party)

[Master] Listen Check, Spot Check

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Let's move...

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Listen: (d20+2) [3+2] 5

[Master] Move Silently Check

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Spot: (d20+10) [17+10] 27

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Move Silently: (d20+21) [20+21] 41

[Velkyna (Joe)] BOOYAH

[Shottamip (Tamora)] wow

[Velkyna (Joe)] Lots of power fluctuations here.

[Defthon (Don)] impressive

[Master] Velkyna walks up the stairs quietly...

[Angie/James] Yeah, too bad on that listen check though.

[Roger (Jeff)] No, he can only communicate with me and felines

[Master] then literally bumps into something invisible.

[Defthon (Don)] they seem to be working for you, Joe

[Velkyna (Joe)] Sadly, no UPS on my computer.

[Master] It feels warm and furry and . . . INITIATIVE!

[Velkyna (Joe)] Shit!

[Defthon (Don)] d'oh!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Just Joe?

[Master] Yes.

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: Initiative: (d20+2) [18+2] 20

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Initiative: (d20+7) [10+7] 17

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Is the "shit" on the message?

[Defthon (Don)] oh nevermind then

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yes, the "Shit!" is on the Message.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] up, now.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] LET'S MOVE!

[Aric (Brian)] i rush up the stairs

[Aric (Brian)] silently if possible

[Angie/James] Ark: we've got trouble

[Jared] ditto

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Move Silently: (d20+8) [3+8] 11

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Master] Hellcat: Initiative: 12

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Screw silently. I just go, go, go

[Velkyna (Joe)] That doesn't sound good.

[Master] Velkyna: Initiative: 7

[Master] jas

[Roger (Jeff)] Roger follows everyone, wondering what's up

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I thought Vel got a 17....

[Aric (Brian)] vel's in trouble

[Master] Velkyna: Initiative: 17

[Master] ok that got it

[Velkyna (Joe)] I was going to say.

[Master] Both Vel and the creature are surprised.

[Master] They are both flat-footed.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Well, that's a plus./

[Master] They are both invisible.


[Master] Well, yeh.

[Master] Point.

[Master] The creature lets out a startled yelp.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I never lose my dex bonus due to being flat-footed

[Velkyna (Joe)] Can I even tell what it is?

[Master] You can't see the damn thing.

[Master] And even if you could, odds are low.

[Master] It's some kind of four-footed animal, and it bumped into you just above your navel.

[Master] Which is where its muzzle is.

[Master] That's about all you got...

[Roger (Jeff)] Does Pilagro gain any information from the yelp?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Not even knowing what it is, I'm going to take a five step drop back and level my crossbow in the general direction, warily.

[Master] Vel recovers her wits first.

[Master] Listen check.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'll hold my action. It might be friendly, it might not.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Listen check for me?

[Master] Please.

[Master] Everyone else comes pelting up the stairs.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Listen: (d20+2) [18+2] 20

[Aric (Brian)] i'm going to rush up to back vel, and assuming i get up there, do a smell check to try to locate whatever's there

[Defthon (Don)] No clue what's going on, but I guess I follow everyone

[Master] Who were the first 3 in front?

[Defthon (Don)] not me. ;)

[Aric (Brian)] i was right at the stairs

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Probably Aric and Aedean were two

Angie/James is receiving the map...

[Aric (Brian)] dralafi was near

[Master] I'm thinking Aric, Aedean, Lia?

[Jared] Im pretty sure I was third

Angie/James has received the map.

[Jared] or not

[Master] Ok that works.

[Defthon (Don)] map me?

[Master] Map!

[Defthon (Don)] lemme tell you it takes for-freaking-ever to map update in 1.7.0

[Master] Has more to do with there being 9 clients.

[Defthon (Don)] ah. Is this how we're actually arranged?

[Master] Okay, roll initiative, pls.

[Master] More or less.

[Defthon (Don)] How did we get so far from the stairs?

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Initiative: (d20+3) [15+3] 18

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Initiative: (d20-1) [11-1] 10

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: Initiative: (d20+2) [8+2] 10

[Master] It made my life easier.

[Angie/James] Arkady and Praxis can see invisible

[Master] Noted.

[Defthon (Don)] Oh. Right.

[Angie/James] Lia: Initiative: (d20+6) [3+6] 9

[Roger (Jeff)] Roger: Initiative: (d20+4) [8+4] 12

[Angie/James] Arkady: Initiative: (d20+3) [3+3] 6

[Jared] Dralafi: Initiative: (d20+6) [2+6] 8

[Master] Nice rolls, fellas.

[Jared] wow that sucked

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Initiative: (d20+3) [5+3] 8

[Velkyna (Joe)] I am the initiative MASTER

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I am confused and frightened by being so close to the top of the order

[Master] Round 3 begins. Aric, you're up.

[Aric (Brian)] ok. can i smell the thing?

[Master] SOrry, round 2

[Master] Yes. YOu have no idea what it is.

[Velkyna (Joe)] "There's something furry and large."

[Velkyna (Joe)] "Might be a fox woman or a skunk man."

[Velkyna (Joe)] "They're probably having sex."

[Aric (Brian)] i mean, i know it's invisible. can i use my superorcish smell to pinpoint it?

[Defthon (Don)] *giggle*

[Master] Brian, not at this time.

[Aric (Brian)] you didn't tell us gertzfield was playing

[Velkyna (Joe)] (Needless to say, the second and third lines, Vel didn't say)

[Master] He does have a FAT PIPE.

[Velkyna (Joe)] giggle

[Master] ok kids, what's Aric's deal>

[Aric (Brian)] has it attacked vel?

[Velkyna (Joe)] No.

[Angie/James] James: I used to have the fattest pipe *sniff*

[Aric (Brian)] i'm tyring to decide if i should attack something randomly or not

[Velkyna (Joe)] I think it booked back upstairs.

[Master] Okay, Aric dithers.

[Aric (Brian)] as my action i'm going to draw my kama and go over to where vel is, prepare a united front

[Angie/James] But you don't know where Vel is, do you?

[Master] Indeed.

[Master] He can smell her tho.

[Velkyna (Joe)] He knows I'm at the foot of the stairs, that's where I was.

[Aric (Brian)] er, i go over by the stairs then

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel smells nice.

[Angie/James] She's real purty too, huh boys?


[Aric (Brian)] "anyone have a dispell invisible spell?"

[Angie/James] I have something that may help

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Wait til initiative 10

[Defthon (Don)] I draw Tsohanoai

[Velkyna (Joe)] Is it Vel's turn?

[Angie/James] But it will be a while before Arkady goes.

[Defthon (Don)] whoops, guess I should wait for initiative

[Master] A burst of light accompanies the drawingof the Sun Sword.

[Master] Yep, Vel's turn.

[Defthon (Don)] ...or not

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel will scoot up the stairs and try to figure out what the deal is. Xbow drawn.

[Master] Ok

[Master] Move Silently

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Move Silently: (d20+21) [12+21] 33

[Master] jas

Angie/James is receiving the map...

[Master] No, don't!

Angie/James has received the map.

[Master] You aren't there, guys.

[Master] Only Joe.

Angie/James is receiving the map...

[Velkyna (Joe)] I am currently nowhere.

Joe is receiving the map...

Angie/James has received the map.

Joe has received the map.

[Angie/James] sorry

[Master] No prob

[Master] Vel, Spot check

[Velkyna (Joe)] Messaged: "Fuck it's Tristam"

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Spot: (d20+10) [6+10] 16

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Fuck


[Master] Ok, yeah, she recognizes Tristan.

[Master] He looks FUCKED UP

[Master] Seriously, something bad happened to him.

[Aric (Brian)] "tristam?!" (blurted out)

[Master] He was just a person before, but now he's all evil yucky.

[Master] Wearing a holy symbol of Nerull.

[Velkyna (Joe)] So "fucked up" as in "deformed" not "badly damaged".?

[Master] And standing next to a winged demon wearing a glaive.

[Master] deformed

[Master] weilding

[Aric (Brian)] (nerull == god of death, right?)

[Master] glaive

[Angie/James] so he's been turned into a lich or something?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Messaged: "BACKUP. REPEAT. BACKUP."

[Master] The demon is powerfully muscled and has what appears to be a rotting, prehensile beard.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] icky.

[Angie/James] beard, not tail?

[Master] Beard.

[Master] Tristan says, "Do this upon my mark."

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel is sidestepping to use the wall as cover.

[Master] Okay, we've got kind of a complicated combat right now.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Sounds like your problem.

[Master] Point.

[Velkyna (Joe)] :)

[Master] Okay, ignoring Vel for a little while...

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm holding my partial action, crossbow readied.

[Master] Everybody move 1 round's worth other than Aric.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] That's 60 feet for me, which easily gets me up the stairs

[Velkyna (Joe)] Half of you should go up the spiral stairs to the right.

[Velkyna (Joe)] They both lead the same place.

[Master] Shottamip casts Haste then moves.

[Master] Regular readying spells stuff.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Haste: gives the target an extra partial action and a +4 haste bonus to AC for the next 11 rounds

[Angie/James] Arkady readies the dust of appearance

[Defthon (Don)] "where are you all going?" *sigh* and then I pull Tsohanoai, blinding light etc, and go up the left-hand stairs

[Master] Praxis follows Arkady.

[Master] Okay, does Dralafi make it all the way up the stairs?

[Roger (Jeff)] Roger looks at both staircases, confused

[Velkyna (Joe)] I would like to reiterate that some people going up the right hand stairs would be an excellent strategic plan.

[Master] Jared, is his movement great enoguh?

[Jared] he makes it to right where I put him :)

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I'm heading towards the right-hand stairs.

[Master] excellent

[Master] Okay, here we fricking go.

[Defthon (Don)] we're running, yes? that lets us go, like, double our movement

[Angie/James] That was all with one move.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I'm flying.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] That was a single move for me

[Master] Right.

[Master] Can Aedean See Invis?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (about 20 feet less than a single move, actually)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Not yet

[Master] ok

[Master] Aedean pounds up the stairs to join Velkyna.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] But, he's planning on casting Invisibility Purge when he gets up the stairs

[Master] He sees Tristan, who shouts, "Kill them!"

[Master] Okay, cast that spell, then.

[Master] las

[Aric (Brian)] will that purge vel's invis too?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel will blow her partial action (held) to fire a crossbow at Tristan.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yep. Unfortunately

[Velkyna (Joe)] So don't worry about purging me. I'll be visible shortly.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Anything invisible within 45 feet will be visible

[Velkyna (Joe)] S'fine.

[Roger (Jeff)] I guess Roger follows his old party up the left stairs

[Master] Okay, two demonic glowing semitranslucent lion things appear.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] The effect moves with me, and lasts 9 minutes

[Master] Vel takes her shot.

[Master] Roll it up.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Attack 1: Light Crossbow +1 [b] hits AC: ((d20+16)) [(17+16)] 33

[Master] Roll damage

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Can I have the map, please, Mike?

[Master] thanks, sorry

[Velkyna (Joe)] Is this a sneak attack? Should be since I'm surprising him.

[Master] ....lemme think.

[Master] No, sorry.

[Defthon (Don)] map me too...

[Velkyna (Joe)] It's within 30'.

[Master] You'll see in a sec.

[Master] Defthon isn't upstairs.

[Velkyna (Joe)] No sneak attack?

[Master] I'm aware, there are reasons, trust the Kimmitt

[Master] Yep.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Damage 1: Light Crossbow +1 [b] does ((1d8+2)) [(6+2)] 8 points of damage.

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's wrong. Should be 7 damage.

[Velkyna (Joe)] It's adding +2, should be +1.

[Master] Velkyna appears as Aedean casts his spell (Noted).

[Master] You're still Blessed or something.

[Master] I'll fix it.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Thanks.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Free action, reload the xbow.

[Master] No, it's wrong on your sheet, actually.

[Master] Wacky.

[Angie/James] The problem with things like inspire courage are a pain to deal with.

[Master] No prov.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Huh. Must've gotten confused with the short sword. M'badd.

[Master] Okay, Aedean appears, Tristan shouts, "Mark!" The two Hellcats appear, the Barbezu disappears,

[Master] Tristan shouts with pain, and we're gonna have to do initiative again for upstairs.

[Velkyna (Joe)] All over? Snif!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] That had better be a TP or something...

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Initiative: (d20+7) [3+7] 10

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Initiative: (d20-1) [10-1] 9

[Jared] do we re-roll too?

[Master] Tristan: Initiative: (d20 -1) [18-1] 17

[Master] No, downstairs does not reroll.

[Master] Okay, we'll run upstairs, then downstairs.

[Master] First Tristan, then Velkyna.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Did the demon teleport?

[Master] Tristan casts a spell.

[Master] jas

[Master] Vel doesn't know.

[Velkyna (Joe)] No, I'm asking because of the invisi purge.

[Master] Aedean, Spellcraft to identify.

[Master] The demon is not around, he's probably not invisible.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It can't be just invisible

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Spellcraft: (d20+5) [20+5] 25

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Woo

Jeff has left the game.

[Master] Oops.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Hoop!

[Master] Okay, it's a Fireball.

[Velkyna (Joe)] HIT ME

[Master] Sorry, Lightning Bolt.

[Master] Fireball would be bad.

[Velkyna (Joe)] D'oh.

Jeff has joined the game.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] D'oh, indeed

[Master] Hey all.

[Angie/James] yes?

[Master] Aedean, you're in the path. Vel is not.

[Master] sorry, jas

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Vel's also visible at this point...

[Master] 23

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yeah, I was going to mention that.

[Master] Lemme fix that.

[Master] Tristan knows better than to throw fireballs at rogues.

[Master] Aedean, Reflex save...

[Velkyna (Joe)] HIT ME

[Master] (or lightning bolts...)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Reflex: (d20+5) [16+5] 21

[Velkyna (Joe)] NICE

[Master] Take 11 points of damage from teh Lightning bolt, please.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] But is it enough...

[Velkyna (Joe)] NICE

[Sedlack] Aedean's hit points adjusted by -11 to 57.

[Master] Hellcat: Initiative: 5

[Master] ok

[Master] Vel, you're up.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Fire xbow, (free) reload, fire xbow.

[Master] heh

[Joe] Velkyna targets Tristan. Distance: 24'00"

[Master] Take your shots.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Attack 1: Light Crossbow +1 [b] hits AC: ((d20+16)) [(11+16)] 27

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna's attack of 27 (probably) hits Tristan

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Attack 2: Light Crossbow +1 [b] hits AC: ((d20+11)) [(5+11)] 16

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna's attack of 16 (probably) hits Tristan

[Master] jas

[Master] ok

[Master] The arrows stick into his skin but do not appear to do any damage.

[Master] Tristan chortles.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Like he wasn't dangerous enough before.

[Velkyna (Joe)] But did the first bolt I fired earlier do damage?

[Master] "You caught me offf guard once before, bitch."

[Master] Aedean!

[Velkyna (Joe)] Mike, did I actually damage him with the first bolt I fired last round?

[Master] Yes.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Huh.

[Master] Wacky.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Indeed.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I have any sense of what happened to Tristan?

[Master] Gimme a knowledge arcana or religion check, and a spot check

[Aric (Brian)] brb bathroom break

[Master] ok

[Brian] I am away from the keyboard.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Spot: ** MODIFIED BY: +WIS (-1) ** (d20+13-1) [20+13-1] 32

[Velkyna (Joe)] Message: "BACKUP. REPEAT. BACKUP."

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Knowledge (arcana): (d20+6) [10+6] 16

[Jared] Frikking Navy.

[Master] Dude's a fucking Lich.

[Jared] I am away from the keyboard.

[Master] Sorry, man.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Is Jared getting a page or something?

[Master] Yeah.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] A flip of the ol' kLoOge Coin results in: Tails

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] TURN HIM.

[Master] lol

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Okay. I'm going to cast silence on our good friend "Sil: the stone we cast silence on before that is sitting next to him"

[Angie/James] maybe we should run away

[Master] That's the Silence Knife, and you go right ahead.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Good, then he can stop calling me rude names.

[Jared] Im kinda sorta here. Im on hold at the moment

[Master] ok

[Brian] I am back at the keyboard.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Maybe Vel's not concerned about more Lightning Bolts, but Aedean is

[Velkyna (Joe)] HIT ME

[Master] Okay, can you see the Silence radius?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yep.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yeah.

[Master] Excellent.

[Master] Hellcat!

[Velkyna (Joe)] Looks like it's centered on Tristan though, not the knife.

[Master] Yeah, oops.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Not that I'm complaining.

[Master] Fixed

[Velkyna (Joe)] I dodge that Hellcat.

[Master] The Hellcats move to engage their two targets.

[Master] heh

[Master] Actually, they both coil and pounce on their two targets.

[Master] Hellcat: Attack: 2 Claws hits AC: 16

[Master] What's Vel's AC again?

[Velkyna (Joe)] 24 +1 from Dodge.

[Velkyna (Joe)] So 25.

[Master] Hellcat: Attack: 2 Claws hits AC: 31

[Master] Hellcat's attack of 31 (probably) hits Velkyna

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ow.

[Master] Hellcat: Damage: 2 Claws does 8 points of damage.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ow.

[Master] Velkyna's hit points adjusted to 54 (-8) - Moderately Wounded

[Master] The Hellcat rakes Vel.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ow.

[Master] Hellcat: Attack: 2 Claws hits AC: 32

[Master] Hellcat's attack of 32 (probably) hits Velkyna

[Master] Hellcat: Damage: 2 Claws does 10 points of damage.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Wait, then what was that fucking 16?

[Master] And then its rear claws come up and claw at her belly...

[Master] Hellcat: Attack: 2 Claws hits AC: 21

[Master] Hellcat's attack of 21 misses Velkyna

[Velkyna (Joe)] Didn't it already roll a 16?

[Master] Hellcat: Damage: 2 Claws does 9 points of damage.

[Master] It gets 4 attacks on the first round after a pounce.

[Master] You know, how a big cat will leap on you, then try to gut you with its rear claws on the backswing.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Why'd you roll damage for an attack that missed?

[Master] Only with intelligence and practice behind it (shudder)

[Velkyna (Joe)] Oh, okay.

[Master] Whoops.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I only thought they got to do that if the first two attacks hit.

[Master] fixed.

[Master] checking

[Velkyna (Joe)] I.e. they hit with the two claws, get a connection, and get the leverage to rake with two back paws.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'm praying for a critical miss. It's about my only hope

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's how it was in 2E, at least.

[Master] Whoops, I messed that one up.

[Master] I was supposed to try to bite and hold you, then rake you.

[Master] But the first 2 attacks always happen.

[Master] I'm gonna rule that the first 2 attacks hit, then the bite missed, and move on.

[Master] Simpler.

[Velkyna (Joe)] S'fine.

[Joe] Velkyna no longer targets Tristan.

[Velkyna (Joe)] As an aside, the t-storms and brownouts have stopped here.

[Master] Hellcat: Attack: 2 Claws hits AC: 28

[Master] Cool.

[Velkyna (Joe)] As an additional aside: "BACKUP. REPEAT. BACKUP."

[Jared] Im back, for now.

[Master] Aedean, your AC is what again?

[Jared] I am back at the keyboard.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Right now, it's a fucking pitiful goddamn 9.

[Master] ow

[Master] ok, you get hit.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] No shit

[Master] Hellcat: Damage: 2 Claws does 9 points of damage.

[Master] Hellcat: Attack: 2 Claws hits AC: 23

[Velkyna (Joe)] Shit. I had no idea. I would've jumped in front of you or something.

[Master] Hellcat: Damage: 2 Claws does 10 points of damage.

[Master] Hellcat: Attack: Bite hits AC: 24

[Master] Hellcat: Damage: Bite does 10 points of damage.

[Master] Okay, take 29 points of damage. The Hellcat attempts to grapple you with its bite.

[Sedlack] Aedean's hit points adjusted by -29 to 28.

[Master] Gimme STR + Base Attack Bonus check.

[Velkyna (Joe)] "BACKUP. REPEAT. BACKUP."

[Angie/James] How did Aedean's AC get so low?

[Velkyna (Joe)] "WE'RE DYING OVER HERE."

[Shottamip (Tamora)] He lost his armor, I remember vaguely.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (1d20+5) [19+5] 24

[Aedean (Sedlack)] My Str got reduced to 6, making my armor too heavy to wear

[Jared] whenever we manage to get up the stairs, youll have backup :)

[Master] Hellcat: STR check: 21

[Master] +6 is 27. suck....

[Master] You are now grappled; the Hellcat attempts to rake you with its hind claws.

[Master] Hellcat: Attack: 2 Claws hits AC: 13

[Velkyna (Joe)] How did he ROLL a 21?

[Master] He rolled a 15. His Str is 22.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It's STR check was a 21

[Master] Okay, it rolled a 1. That's a miss no matter what.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] There's that critical miss I was looking for

[Master] As a matter of fact, I'm gonna rule it a critical miss and deny it its final attack.

[Master] ok

[Aedean (Sedlack)] woo

[Master] Downstairs now.

[Aric (Brian)] bad kitty!

[Master] Barbezu: Initiative: 20

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Keep praying, Aedean. You seem to have a divine connection.

[Jared] whered that barbezu come from?

[Master] A Barbezu suddenly teleports in!

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's from us. Our badd.


[Master] It is tall and heavily muscled; it has a foul, prehensile beard and is wielding a glaive.

[Jeff] map me?

[Master] It targets the nearest PC . . . Shottamip.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Is it a glaive glaive guisarme glaive?

[Jared] Ill go up since Im at the top of the stairs already

[Defthon (Don)] Is that a wall between the left staircase and the barbezu (i.e. can we see it?)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] brb

[Sedlack] I am away from the keyboard.

[Master] Yes.

[Master] You cannot see it.

[Master] THe Barbezu attacks.

[Master] Barbezu: Attack 1: Glaive [b] hits AC: 17

[Master] Barbezu's attack of 17 misses Shottamip

[Master] Barbezu: Attack 2: Glaive [b] hits AC: 12

[Master] Barbezu's attack of 12 misses Shottamip

[Master] But it is unable to penetrate Shottamip's tremendous combination of Mage Armor and Hasty dodgint.

[Master] Aric?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] yay

[Master] Oh, right, Brian left for a sec.

[Master] Ok.

[Sedlack] I am back at the keyboard.

[Aric (Brian)] sorry

[Aric (Brian)] i'm going to rush up the stairs since vel needs help

[Velkyna (Joe)] "BACKUP. REPEAT. BACKUP."

[Aric (Brian)] then i plan to rush and do a jumping attack at one of the cats

[Aric (Brian)] if there's not enough space, i'll move to attack normally

[Aric (Brian)] trying to target one that seems to be more of a danger

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Owowow

[Dralafi (Jared)] Orcs are not allowed to step on me.

[Master] jas

[Velkyna (Joe)] He's more of a half orc.

[Aric (Brian)] i can tumble over you

[Velkyna (Joe)] He can also tumble FOR you.

[Jared] Not if Itumble first ;)

[Master] OK Aric runs up the stairs, we'll handle that in a sec.

[Master] Roger?

[Jared] We're having a tumble fight. Its like the end of Zoolander, but with less will farrell

[Jeff] Was I able to hear anything from the Barbezu attack?

[Master] Sure, it's pretty obvious that there's a ruckus happening.

[Velkyna (Joe)] If we're having a tumble fight, I win. Period.

[Jeff] Okay, roger moves right

[Master] Ok, 20' standard move?

[Angie/James] Yes, we know Vel.

[Master] kewl

[Master] Roger spots the foul creature.

[Master] It's attempting to whale on Shottamip!

[Jared] I bow before joe's superior tumbling.

[Jeff] And I cast magic missile

[Jared] Although Im kinda upset hes got more dex than me. I'll have to fix that.

[Master] Roll it up.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Don't hold your breath.

[Jeff] Um,

[Master] Roger: Error parsing "14/18(evocation)+1": kLoOgeWerks.jZ: unexpected character: evocation

Joe is receiving the map...

[Master] whoops.

Joe has received the map.

[Jeff] okay, 4 missiles, 1d4+1 each

[Master] okay, let's work on that later.

[Master] jas

Joe is receiving the map...

[Jared] joe: if it wasn't for those damn +4 gloves....

Joe has received the map.

[Jeff] Roll #1: (d4) [3] 3, Roll #2: (d4) [4] 4, Roll #3: (d4) [3] 3, Roll #4: (d4) [2] 2

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ha ha!

[Master] So that's 12 +4

[Master] 16

[Master] ok

[Master] Four Magic Missiles pelt into the suprised Barbezu.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Actually, if it wasn't for gloves, as far as I can tell, I'd still beat you in Dex.

[Master] Defthon

[Velkyna (Joe)] :P

[Defthon (Don)] hey

[Defthon (Don)] so, is dralafi blocking me on the stairs? how'd he get ahead of me?

[Master] He started ahead of you, stud.

[Master] Yeah, Dralafi's in the way and (surprisingly) not moving quite as fast as you are.

[Velkyna (Joe)] To the best of Vel's knowledge, are demons sneak-attackable?

[Defthon (Don)] feh. Can I get past him on the stairs?

[Master] Vel's gonna find out.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Hm.

[Jared] curses. Im so slow.

[Master] The staircase is too narrow for people with drawn weapons to do such thingsl

[Master] I'd accept a Tumble roll, maybe...

[Velkyna (Joe)] Dralafi's skinny.

[Defthon (Don)] Has he already moved this round?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Little elfie.

[Master] No, but you can only hold a Partial action.

[Defthon (Don)] Right. Back down towards the ruckus, then.

[Master] YOu only have a 30' move, mighty Paladin.

[Master] ok

[Master] You could do a Charge action, tho.

[Defthon (Don)] Thing is, if I'm not attacking

[Defthon (Don)] yes I could

[Defthon (Don)] might as well, I guess.

[Master] ok

[Master] Obviously, use the higher enhancement against this embodiment of evil.

[Defthon (Don)] I didn't type it in separate---the list was already long---so add +2

[Master] ok

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: Attack 1: tsohanoai [b] hits AC: ((d20+13)) [(16+13)] 29

[Master] That's a hit.

[Master] Roll damage.

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: Damage 1: tsohanoai [b] does ((1d10+6)) [(8+6)] 14 points of damage.

[Master] WHAM

[Master] Second attack.

[Master] Or do you get that with a CHarge?

[Defthon (Don)] I was just checking that.

[Defthon (Don)] "After moving, you may make a single melee attack." Guess that's a no.

[Defthon (Don)] Also my AC is -2 for the next round.

[Master] right.

[Master] okey-dokey.

[Master] Lia lia

[Master] The youth of the nation

[Velkyna (Joe)] LIA. BACKUP. PLEASE.

[Angie/James] first boots of haste

[Angie/James] then move and attack


[Aric (Brian)] mike can i get the map so i can plan aric's move?

[Master] HOw many raound have you used up today?

[Master] Aric, jas

[Angie/James] 8 rounds

[Master] ok kewl

[Velkyna (Joe)] Aric, help out Aedean. I got my end here.

[Angie/James] Lia targets Barbezu. Distance: 4'06"

[Jared] lias in position down here; I can move up and help you guys.

[Master] Hit him!

[Angie/James] Lia: Attack 1: Great Sword [t] hits AC: ((d20+13)) [(11+13)] 24

[Angie/James] Lia's attack of 24 (probably) hits Barbezu

[Master] DAMAGE

[Velkyna (Joe)] First rule of AD&D guys:

[Angie/James] Lia: Damage 1: Great Sword [t] does ((2d6+11)) [((2+2)+11)] 15 points of damage.


[Velkyna (Joe)] The CLERIC is the BALM that SOOTHES.

[Master] Defthon knocks the Barbezu back with his mighty charge,

[Master] scoring terrible wounds.

[Master] Lia steps in behind,

[Angie/James] Lia: Attack 2: Great Sword [t] hits AC: ((d20+8)) [(1+8)] 9 [CRITICAL MISS]

[Master] and severs its spine with a mighty thrust.

[Master] The demon dies.

[Master] (The second attack wasn't necessary, stud.)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Good. Now come up here and deal with the goddamn lich.

[Angie/James] Angie: who you callin' a stud?

[Master] hee

[Master] Dralafi, you headed upstairs?

[Velkyna (Joe)] On the plus side, the hellcat pellets are excellent.

[Jared] yeah

[Aedean (Sedlack)]

[Master] Shottamip

[Master] Shottamip, unsatisfied with fending off a demon's attention for a full round,

[Master] sprints upstairs to cause yet more damage.

[Master] Um, floats.

[Jared] so, what, I get one five foot step? I feel so wasted

[Velkyna (Joe)] And guys, he's a mage. Please remember to fan out appropriately. Or at least queue up the reflex saves.

[Master] Arkady?

[Angie/James] I go upstairs to attend to Aedean's screamings

[Master] Heh.

[Master] ok

[Angie/James] I normally move 60'

[Master] Yep, jas

Angie/James is receiving the map...

Angie/James has left the game.

Angie/James has received the map.

[Master] That's what you get for being impatient.

[Master] Okay, Aric, Aedean is getting Fucking Mauled.

[Velkyna (Joe)]

[Master] hit him.

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's about where Vel and Aedean are right now.

[Master] Aric?

[Aric (Brian)] sorry it had paused

[Jared] funny, I thought alumni web pages were insufficiently secure to allow them to be used

[Defthon (Don)] hee.

[Master] ok go ahead.

[Aric (Brian)] ok, i'm going to go take a flying leap at the cat mauling aedean

[Aric (Brian)] and try to land on the other side of it

[Master] Sure thing.

Angie/James has joined the game.

[Master] Right.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I don't understand the initiative.

[Aric (Brian)] HEEEE-YA!

[Master] The two floors are all tangled up right now.

[Master] Gimme a bit.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Aric mounts the cat.

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Attack: Tiger Leap (via Sandals) [S] hits AC: ((d20+10)) [(8+10)] 18

[Defthon (Don)] Oy!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Nice song, Joe.

[Angie/James] Sorry, what did I miss?

[Defthon (Don)] Hadn't heard that before, Chris?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] No, I hadn't

[Master] That's a hit, Aric.

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Error parsing "(2x1d10+4)": kLoOgeWerks.hN: unexpected character: x1d10+4

[Jeff] Aric is attacking the hellcat grappling Aedean

[Master] Woop.

[Defthon (Don)] Heh. It made the rounds on the nfs a couple months back.

[Aric (Brian)] hrm

[Aric (Brian)] ok, let me roll a d10

[Aric (Brian)] Roll #1: (d10+4) [1+4] 5

[Velkyna (Joe)] Right. I think it fits Aedean's mood right about now.

[Aric (Brian)] *2 = 10

[Master] Ok.

[Master] Try it now I think I just fixed it.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I particularly like the "I need armor" line, given Aedean's present situation.

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Error parsing "(2x(1d10+4))": kLoOgeWerks.hN: unexpected character: x(1d10+4)

[Master] ah

[Master] ok later

[Master] Aric hits the Hellcat and lands on the other side of it.

[Master] Dralafi?

[Angie/James] Did Arkady get to do anything besides move upstairs?

[Jared] yes?

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Error parsing "(2x(1d10+4))": kLoOgeWerks.hN: unexpected character: x(1d10+4)

[Master] Not yet.

[Master] Hit something. :)

[Aric (Brian)] whoops sorry trying it

[Jared] map me so I know whats there

[Master] Whoops.

[Master] Try it again, Brian.

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Damage: Tiger Leap (via Sandals) [S] does ((2*(1d10+4))) [(2*(2+4))] 12 points of damage.

[Jared] how did I wind up not on the stairs?

[Aric (Brian)] hey there we go

[Master] Convenience.

[Master] Move somewhere sensible.

[Master] Arkady, while Jared's doing that, go ahead and finish your move.

[Master] The only exit from the room you're in is in the NW.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Unless Tristan closed it, all doors should be open.

[Angie/James] I don't know that engaging Tristan is such a good idea.

[Master] Yep.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We left them all open.

[Jared] how much exactyly have I moved in this crazy messed up turn thats had a billion parts?

[Master] A good 15 feet.

[Angie/James] Arkady is going to just move past Tristan to Aedean

[Jared] ok. Im gonna take a shot at the hellcat thats eating aedean

[Jared] Dralafi targets Hellcat. Distance: 11'08"

[Master] ok

[Jared] Dralafi: Attack: +2 Longbow (30') [B] hits AC: ((d20+18)) [(19+18)] 37

[Jared] Dralafi's attack of 37 (probably) hits Hellcat

[Master] Arkady will need more than 1 turn to manage that, what with all the twists and avoiding of attacks of opportunity and whatnot.

[Velkyna (Joe)] NICE.

[Master] Roll damage.

[Master] Is that a critical?

[Jared] Dralafi: Damage: +2 Longbow (30') [B] does ((1d8+7)) [(1+7)] 8 points of damage.

[Angie/James] what's range on cure light wounds? Is it touch?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It's touch

[Master] Critical threat, sorry.

[Jared] no crit. bows threat on 20

[Master] gracias.

[Master] ok

[Master] The Hellcat is wounded yet more.

[Master] Arkady does a little juking and jiving.

[Master] Shottamip, you're up for the end of this crazy-assed turn.

[Angie/James] Actually, it would have been better for Arkady to go up the other stairs I suppose.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Subdue: freezes the target creature in place for 11 rounds

[Master] You pays your money you takes your chances.

[Master] Hellcat: Will: 13

[Aric (Brian)] you know, mike, i have to say, it looks like tristam is grinning like one of those happy face things

[Master] heh

[Master] The Hellcat suddenly freezes in place, unable to move.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Which one?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Which Hellcat?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Excellllllent.

[Master] The one mauling Chris.

[Master] Aedean.

[Master] Okay, that ends the first round.

[Master] Shottamip, Arkady, Aric, Dralafi, gimme Initiative rolls.

[Jared] Dralafi: Initiative: (d20+6) [2+6] 8

[Jared] DAMMIT

[Velkyna (Joe)] Jared, you're an initiative STUD.

[Angie/James] Arkady: Initiative: (d20+3) [17+3] 20

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Initiative: (d20+3) [7+3] 10

[Master] Aric: Initiative: 22

[Master] Arkady, you're up.

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Master] Wait, Aric first.

[Master] Sorry.

[Master] Aric!

[Velkyna (Joe)] Right.

[Master] Heh.

[Aric (Brian)] ok

[Aric (Brian)] i've got my kama out, i'm going to take a couple of swipes at the one i'm next to

[Jared] its all about the flanky sneak attack loving.

[Aric (Brian)] keeping aedean alive is more important

[Velkyna (Joe)] Righto.

[Velkyna (Joe)] But the hellcat Aedean's got is Held for 11 rounds.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Its not going anywhere.

[Aric (Brian)] oh

[Aric (Brian)] missed that

[Aric (Brian)] ok i'll flank vel's them

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Could get dispelled though - be careful.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yeah, Shottamip held it last round.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Someone needs to coup de boop it.

[Angie/James] Arkady targets Tristan. Distance: 16'02"

[Master] It would be more in character for Aric to just finish the damn thing off.

[Aric (Brian)] tru

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Attack 1: Kama (Masterwork, Enhanced) hits AC: ((d20+11)) [(2+11)] 13

[Jared] he should be able to flank vels and still beat the first one.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Move 5', finish it off, and still be flanking.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Right.

[Master] That's a miss.

[Master] Second attack.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Well, shit.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Uh, isn't that a trigger word?

[Angie/James] Arkady: yells out that he's gone.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] "Ack, he teleported out."

[Master] Nah, it can be a mental command, too.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] "Could be anywhere."

[Velkyna (Joe)] Kind of like my ring.

[Master] Spellcraft again.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Spellcraft: (d20+5) [9+5] 14

[Master] Shottamip.

[Angie/James] Arkady: You are cured ((1d8+1)*-1) [(6+1)*-1] -7 points of damage

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Guess I could try to finish it off.

[Angie/James] That was just a test.

[Master] Don't go into the silent area.

[Tamora] Shottamip targets Hellcat. Distance: 38'01"

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Serpents: sends 5 green serpents flying through the air to strike the target for (5d4+5) [(1+4+2+3+2)+5] 17 damage

[Dralafi (Jared)] can I see anhything to shoot with my last shot? :)

[Aric (Brian)] OLE OLE OLE

[Defthon (Don)] Combat over?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel retrieves her xbow and stows it in her haversack.

[Master] yes

[Angie/James] Arkady: moves to cure Aedean

[Defthon (Don)] I run upstairs

[Defthon (Don)] me?

[Angie/James] Arkady: You are cured ((1d8+1)*-1) [(2+1)*-1] -3 points of damage

[Sedlack] Aedean's hit points adjusted by 3 to 54.

[Master] ok

[Shottamip (Tamora)] So what on earth - or in hell - did he want this time?

[Velkyna (Joe)] He probably wanted the sword, right?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Let's talk about that later

[Defthon (Don)] Who? What happened?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Let's leave now

[Velkyna (Joe)] LEAVE.

[Aric (Brian)] someone gonna go grab that knife?

[Defthon (Don)] Look, I still have no idea who any of you are or what I'm doing here.


[Shottamip (Tamora)] Space on carpets for the new guys?

[Jeff] Knifey knifey!

[Defthon (Don)] What do you know about my sword?

[Defthon (Don)] Fine.

[Master] sure

[Defthon (Don)] Carpets?

[Master] PUt ROger in a bag of holding or something

[Angie/James] Arkady: look, that was a lich, he decided to leave, so we'll leave too before he comes back

[Velkyna (Joe)] Done, and done.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We have some flying carpets outside

[Defthon (Don)] Ah.

[Velkyna (Joe)] People, we are LEAVING.

[Aric (Brian)] Come with us back to the Castle. We can talk there.

[Defthon (Don)] Fine. After you...

[Master] Gimme 5 mins to scarf down pizza

[Dralafi (Jared)] Sounds perfectly reasonable

[Master] and then a scene change.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel's going to turn invisible and scout ahead of the party to make sure there aren't any shenanigans.

[Velkyna (Joe)] When we're on our way to the carpets, that is.

[Master] o

[Master] k

[Master] The Barbezu was carrying a magic Glaive

[Velkyna (Joe)] SELL IT.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Someone with a bag can grab it for now.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yeah...a magic Glaive of Lich attraction

[Velkyna (Joe)] It'd be more valuable if it was a glaive glaive guisarme glaive.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Y'know, I didn't like that mage much before... the Lichness definitely puts him on my shit list.

[Jared] at some point, some caring caster should hook me up with some greater magic arrows. you know, for when the lich comes back.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Arkady can share, I'm sure.

[Angie/James] Yes, it is SOP to do that every morning.

[Angie/James] They only last 9 hours though.

[Jared] just making sure it was mentioned at some point. doesnt have to be now.

[Angie/James] Well, it can't be now anyway, as Arkady is out of 3rd level spells.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Arkady missed both shots - guess we could use another bowman. :)

[Velkyna (Joe)] Too much gas.

[Angie/James] Thank you so much.

[Defthon (Don)] Hey Chris: do you have your various undead-turning rolls entered into klooge?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yer darn tootin'.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yes, I have them in there

[Defthon (Don)] How? The "max HD" roll is off a table.

[Angie/James] I'm going to reboot the system, be back in 5 minutes.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Turn Undead: Up to (1d20+5) [4+5] 9 -- 12 HD are affected. Turning damage is (2d6+16) [(3+2)+16] 21.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] For example

Angie/James has left the game.

[Master] okey-dokey.

[Master] Let's wait for the Wisconson Duo to rejoin us,

[Master] and we'll move forward.

[Velkyna (Joe)] XP, while we're waiting?

[Defthon (Don)] Hm, I'll talk to you later about how to enter that.

[Master] The magic of the glaive fades as its owner has passed.

[Master] 100 XP per person, quickie encounter.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Considering Aedean and I almost died, that seems so ass.

[Aric (Brian)] "Suddenly, Tristam appears, accompanied by 25 wraiths!"

[Defthon (Don)] I can't get my charsheet

[Master] jas

[Master] ok try it now

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Mike, I am updating my XP on the charsheet unless you tell me not to.

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ditto.

[Master] ko

[Defthon (Don)] Still can't get a lock on the char sheet

[Defthon (Don)] "no data available"

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It won't let me update my XP

[Master] I think I did it for you.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] How frustrating

[Master] Do you have an Update XP option?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Nope

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I didn't get the XP from last session

[Velkyna (Joe)] I just edited it straight up from the char sheet.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (either)

[Defthon (Don)] I'm pretty sure my XP hasn't changed since the beginning of this session.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Get character sheet, Edit, then tweak normally, then save.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I click on it, but it won't let me enter anything

[Velkyna (Joe)] There should be an "Edit" tab at the bottom, next to the "View" tab.

[Defthon (Don)] Right, when I click "Edit" my KW client can't get a lock.

[Master] Ok, I just gave everyone XP.

[Master] Exept for Vel who already had it.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aha

[Velkyna (Joe)] Darn. I was hoping to get an extra 100.

[Velkyna (Joe)] :P

[Aedean (Sedlack)] The graphical interface confused me

[Defthon (Don)] Mine is still at 32,1


[Velkyna (Joe)] Don, you have to remove it, then re-get it. To refresh.

[Defthon (Don)] Did that

[Master] jas

[Velkyna (Joe)] All right, I'm all out of ideas.

[Master] Don, disconnect and reconnect.

[Master] please...?

[Defthon (Don)] Interestingly, "Disconnect" isn't working for me right now.

[Master] !!

Don has joined the game.

[Master] heh

[Velkyna (Joe)] You're stuck here FOREVER.

[Master] Welcome back.

[Master] Now edit your sheet.

[Defthon (Don)] Fascinating. "Disconnect" didn't work, but "Connect" did.

[Master] Roger, Dralafi, Roger, I need Spot checks.

[Master] Sorry, Defthon too.

[Master] hee

[Jeff] Roger: Spot: (d20+10) [10+10] 20

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: Spot: (d20+6) [11+6] 17

[Defthon (Don)] and map me?

[Jared] Dralafi: Spot: (d20+6) [18+6] 24

[Velkyna (Joe)] Jared?

[Velkyna (Joe)] There you go. has joined the game.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Quite an elegant name.

[Angie/James] We already had something else set...

[Angie/James] Wierd

Angie/James is receiving the map...

Angie/James has received the map.

[Aric (Brian)] is your last name?

[Angie/James] well, did we miss anything?

[Master] Nope.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We were just chatting.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We all get 100xp for getting Aedean's ass kicked.

[Master] Okay, the party troops out the front door and toward the tower with the carpets. Not particularly suprisingly,

[Aric (Brian)] hey mike, are the shadows in the list the ones we killed last time?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Attack 1: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (-3) ** Mace of Disruption +1 [1] hits AC: ((d20+8-3)) [(17+8-3)] 22

[Master] while the carpets are still there, the guard was killed, probably by magic missiles.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Poor bastard.

[Angie/James] uh oh.

[Master] I'm gonna send y'all some images.

[Master] Web cam photos of maps of Serendair, Estin, and the Elf Lands.

[Defthon (Don)] nifty

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I suppose if we bring him back, some cleric of the Duke's can fix him up, if that's what they do with guard ranks.

[Master] Very doable.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Still waiting...

[Shottamip (Tamora)] The images should be in your window on the left, at the bottom.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] .jpg files

[Shottamip (Tamora)] under the Campaign tab

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I saw them right after I wrote that

[Defthon (Don)] how do I save them?

[Master] Hell, I dunno.

[Roger (Jeff)] apple-shift-3

[Master] The writing isn't great, talk amongst yourselves.

[Master] You have some time to chat while flying the magic carpets back to Duke Estin's temporary Court.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Fortitude: (d20+9) [17+9] 26

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Well, we can start by introducing ourselves...

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I am Aedean. I channel the blessings of the Laughing God

[Master] Please feel free to all type at once.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Diplomacy: (d20+6) [15+6] 21

[Master] heh

[Velkyna (Joe)] We could start by mentioning that we also came here from the other continent.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip says something better than I could.

[Angie/James] Hi, I'm Arkady, and I'm an alcoholic

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm Vel and I'm a bigger alcoholic than Arkady.

[Angie/James] Lia's kinda terse. As usual.

[Aric (Brian)] I am Aric, and I put up with these yahoos for some reason.

[Angie/James] You mean, we put up with you for some reason.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel is short for Velkyna. I'll answer to either.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] You're too damn ugly to hang out with anyone else

[Angie/James] And it's not becuase you're cute and cuddly.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Beside's Aric's got a certian je nais ce quos.

[Aric (Brian)] I have inner beauty. At least that's what my mom always told me.

[Velkyna (Joe)] A.k.a. "a mank".

[Angie/James] LOL

[Jared] I am Dralafi Nailo, although I am often referred to as Dral. I am a follower of the path commonly referred to as the Way of the Bow.

[Aric (Brian)] You know, it's all of you who keep insisting I have a mank. As a monk, I'd think I'd try to bathe and clean regularly.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] point.

[Master] Actually, I kind of agree with that.

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's true.

[Master] at any rate

[Roger (Jeff)] I'm Roger. I am a wizard. Why are you dressed up as a halfling? Where did you get those flying shoes? I can I see them? These flying carpets are great! etc..

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Nailo? Interesting.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I just figured he'd have a bit of an orc ... musk.

[Aric (Brian)] And besides, it'd be a lot easier to sneak around if I didn't smell.

[Defthon (Don)] I'm Defthon (that's pronounced deaf-thin, ya smartasses). Since... a certain experience I had... I serve the goddess Rathia, and the way of truth and good and law.

[Master] If he weren't a monk, probably.

[Master] But he's crazy fastidious.

[Defthon (Don)] I still would like to know what you all know about my sword.

[Velkyna (Joe)] _Our_ sword.

[Defthon (Don)] Whatever.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] We - well, Lia - has one a lot like it.

[Velkyna (Joe)] (Vel seems a little snippy about that)

[Angie/James] We don't know much, other than we were supposed to find/help the bearer.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (Vel had her chance)

[Defthon (Don)] O...kay....

[Velkyna (Joe)] (Vel's surprisingly okay with that)

[Master] Praxis starts chattering back at Roger.

[Angie/James] It wasn't clear to us if one of us was supposed to be the bearer.

[Defthon (Don)] And who is this "Tristan" guy?

[Velkyna (Joe)] He's a big fucker.

[Angie/James] Tristan is a very, every nasty guy.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Quite the jagbag.

[Angie/James] He like to stir up trouble.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] And now a lich.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] And he always runs away whenever we might pose the slightest threat to him.

[Angie/James] And meddle with infernal powers.

[Master] "There aren't any gnomes in this part of Serendair because of a war, and she's very protective of the shoes, and I want to be a wizard when I grow up . . ."

[Shottamip (Tamora)] smiles at Praxis.

[Angie/James] That is Praxis saying that, right?

[Master] Yep.

[Master] I think Roger and Praxis are going tget along Just Fine.

[Angie/James] Arkady: Yes Praxis, and you have quite a bit of growing up to do.

[Master] Praxis glares at Arkady and suddenly looks very old for a half-second.

[Aric (Brian)] Yay, Leafblower's got a friend

[Dralafi (Jared)] *rolls eyes*

[Master] Then reverts to his usual playful self.

[Angie/James] Are we going to bring back the former bearer to the Duke?

[Defthon (Don)] So what brought you to this castle, anyway?

[Master] "And up and out and up and out..."

[Angie/James] Arkady smiles at Praxis.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Arkady: I think we should.

[Velkyna (Joe)] He should still be on the roof.

[Aric (Brian)] We can land on the roof and pick up his body.

[Master] Sure, he actually could be put into a Bag of Holding if necessary.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Ew.

[Master] The Shield Guardian is also there, inert.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ew ew

[Master] Not a lot of space left on the carpets . . .

[Velkyna (Joe)] How much would the guardian be worth?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Do we have any use for that? It's resettable, right?

[Master] Appraise check.

[Aric (Brian)] A bodybag of holding?

[Angie/James] We could tow it. How much does it way?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Appraise: ** MODIFIED BY: SKILL (+0) ** (d20+10+0) [3+10+0] 13

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Appraise: (d20+2) [13+2] 15

[Master] More than all of you combined.

[Master] You'd have to come back later.

[Angie/James] Arkady could levitate it, and rope it behind us.

[Master] Stars start dancing in front of Shottamip's eyes.

[Velkyna (Joe)] That didn't turn out right.

[Master] She looks at Velkyna, who is still pondering the possibilities.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Move Silently: ** MODIFIED BY: SKILL (+0) ** (d20+21+0) [16+21+0] 37

[Master] "This is unique . . ."

[Velkyna (Joe)] Why do skill checks look fucked up now?

[Master] I'll fix it!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It's only yours...

[Defthon (Don)] What is this "shield guardian" you're talking about?

[Master] fixed

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Wow, I think we could sell that to the right buyer for... say... 50,000GP or more?

[Velkyna (Joe)] JACK. POT.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] We should definitely come back.

[Angie/James] It is on the roof. It was guarding the former bearer of the sword.

Velkyna (Joe) pumps her fists giddily.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] If we can't take it now.

[Master] Roof map

[Master] Has Constantin and his Shield Guardian.

[Angie/James] However, someone killed the bearer, in spite of the guardian

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm starting to think of Tristan now.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Or, he just died

[Angie/James] Oh, we'd better get these guys innoculated quick!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] If we can levitate and tow the SG, fine.

[Angie/James] Angie: they don't know about the plague yet.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Good point about the plague bread.

[Master] It weighs something like 600 lb.

[Dralafi (Jared)] Innoculated?

[Aric (Brian)] Do we have any of the bread with us?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Otherwise, let's come back l;ater

[Master] No.

[Velkyna (Joe)] It's like 5-10 minutes from here to base camp. We'll zip back for it in a bit.

[Master] More like 15, but yeah.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Plus, we've got a pile of furniture to sell off as well.

[Defthon (Don)] plague?

[Aric (Brian)] Oh yeah, there was a plague in this town. Um, we'll give you guys the antidote real quick like.

[Dralafi (Jared)] Comforting.

[Velkyna (Joe)] It's called the Blue Death. It's charming.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] It's just a bit too heavy for me to teleport it anywhere.

[Aric (Brian)] And by charming, Vel means a horrible and painful death.

[Angie/James] Don't worry, you'll only die horribly in less than a day if you get it.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I think there's some bowel liquification involved as well.

[Roger (Jeff)] I have a polyself that will last 7 hrs, I could poly into, um

[Master] If you want to take back the bodies, it would probably be best for Shottamip to teleport some stuff or people over,

[Master] and meet her at the Duke's court.

[Aric (Brian)] In any case, we do have a cure for it, which we can give to you posthaste, as soon as we reach the castle.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel will stay here and guard the statue.

[Aric (Brian)] We should teleport the new guys so they can get innoculated

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ain't nobody fucking with this thing.

[Master] I'm sure Tristan is salivating at that notion.

[Angie/James] That sounds like a plan

[Defthon (Don)] I'm not worried.

[Angie/James] Vel: are you sure you want to stay behind?

[Aric (Brian)] I say we send Arkady to explain them to the Duke.


[Defthon (Don)] That seems like a bad idea.

[Aric (Brian)] I'll stay with Vel.

[Defthon (Don)] o...kay...

[Master] How much can Arkady levitate?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 100lb/lev

[Master] So tow the damn thing behind a carpet already.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Sounds like it's time for a shield guardian blimp.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Are you nuts? We're all leaving. No one is staying for a repeat engagement.

[Angie/James] That's what I said before

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I concur. I just looked up the number

[Master] ok so Shottamip should teleport herself and a few poeple over

[Master] So there's space on the carpets for all the new arrivals, bodies, etc.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We're taking this guardian with, or I'm not leaving.

[Angie/James] Fine. We'll follow with the bodies and the guardian.

[Master] And Arkady should stay with the carpets, because he has to levitate the thingy.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm not letting anyone get their hands on this.

[Master] Who is going with Shottamip?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] He doesn't like travelling with me anyway. *pout*

[Defthon (Don)] Tad single-minded, hmm Velkyna?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'll go with Shottamip

[Master] Tsohanoai'i

[Master] I'm still giggling.

[Master] ok

[Aric (Brian)] You have no idea, Defthon.

[Velkyna (Joe)] To Def: We all have our priorities.

[Defthon (Don)] Indeed.

[Master] Ok, Shottamip, Aedean, 2 more.

[Angie/James] OK, so far it is Vel and I with the bodies, guardian and carpets

[Angie/James] Lia is staying with the bearer too.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Aric was going to stay as well.

[Angie/James] former bearer that is.

[Master] Nobody is staying.

[Master] Everybody is carpetting or teleporting.

[Master] The Guardian is blimping.

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] "Stay" as in "on the carpets".

[Master] o oh

[Master] ok

[Angie/James] yes, I mean traveling with the carpets ; stay by the bearer

[Defthon (Don)] Where exactly is it we are going?

[Aric (Brian)] who's in the worst shape?

[Master] Fine, Shottamip can bring a couple of bodies.

[Aric (Brian)] they should teleport

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We are going to the Duke's castle

[Master] Temporary.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Actually, his base camp.

[Master] Anyway, Shottamip, gimme that teleport roll.

[Defthon (Don)] And the Duke is...?

[Angie/James] Actually, we should load the bodies on the carpets, so we can drop them off somewhere.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Right

[Roger (Jeff)] I want to fly on the carpets!

[Master] heh

[Angie/James] Duke Estin.

[Defthon (Don)] You people are really not being very informative.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] He's in charge of a ton of land. And a good guy - his house is sworn to Pelor.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] He's the lord of this area, and he owes us some favors

[Velkyna (Joe)] Sorry, we're in a little bit of a hurry to GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] More like a kingdom than a duchy, really.

[Master] Shottamip, why don't you teleport with Aedean and the bodies.

[Angie/James] OK, on the carpets: Lia, Arkady, Vel, Roger, the bodies, the guardian

[Master] You can all continue this conversation once you arrive.

[Defthon (Don)] Pelor, hey, O-KAY, now we're talking.

[Master] oh wait

[Master] ok Shottamip goes with Aedean, Defthon, Dralafi?

[Angie/James] we need to drop off the bodies with a cleric or somebody.

[Master] That works.

[Master] I'm sure the Duke can work that out for you.

[Defthon (Don)] If you're willing to take me, I'll go either way.

[Defthon (Don)] Teleport's fine.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Sure.

[Angie/James] Easier to fly them. If you teleport, you still have to drag them around.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Are we set?

[Master] And Constantin ain't coming back.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Sounds like a good division. Let's go

[Master] Yep, roll dem bones.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Teleport: transports herself and up to (50*11) [50*11] 550 pounds of willing creatures to another location, teleport check (1d100) [91] 91

[Velkyna (Joe)] THAT'S NOT GOOD.

[Master] Shottamip teleports without difficulty.

[Velkyna (Joe)] False alarm.

[Angie/James] That's why I don't like telporttation

[Master] You all join her at the duke's Court and arrange for a functionary to see to the bodies.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] High numbers are good for everything but teleport.

[Master] "This one gets buried. This one gets raised."

[Master] "Buried. Raised."

[Master] "Okay."

[Master] When you've reassembled, you chat for a little while and go in to see the Duke.

[Master] Anyone have questions that need answering before we move forward?

[Master] Heh.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] We would probably grab some of the bread right off. Isn't it all over the camp?

[Master] It's mostly gone, but sure.

[Angie/James] no questions

[Velkyna (Joe)] Where did the three new guys say they were from again? Has Vel heard of it?

[Master] The plague has essentially subsided.

[Velkyna (Joe)] (on the old continent, that is)

[Master] You've all vaguely heard of the places the guys say they're from.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Better safe than sorry.

[Master] Much like one another.

[Aric (Brian)] Doesn't hurt to be safe.

[Angie/James] Might Arkady have heard of where the new guys are from?

[Master] Yep, and he could probably write short books on each of them.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Arkady's the new Frommers.

[Angie/James] If he had that kind of time.

[Master] heh

[Master] New folks, last chance to ask some questions (or clarify parts of the maps).

[Master] (I'm sending an image. It'll be useful shortly.

[Master] )

[Defthon (Don)] I can't even _read_ the maps, but they wouldn't mean much anyway.

[Master] Heh.

[Master] Estin occupies the NE corner of the continent.

[Master] It is bordered to the east by the Baryzet Empire,

[Master] Sorry, west.

[Master] It is bordered to the west by the Baryzet Empire,

[Defthon (Don)] So the Duke sent you to the castle why exactly?

[Master] Then Bethany,

[Master] Then the "tributaries," petty lords who owe the Duke allegiance,

[Master] then the Alemannic states.

[Dralafi (Jared)] someone hook me up with that guy's bowmaker.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] No one had heard from the people living inside for weeks.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] So we checked it out, cleared out a bunch of undead.

[Master] Farther south are various human states,

[Master] then the orcish wastelands,

[Master] then the elven lands.

[Master] A mountain range splits the continent in two.

[Defthon (Don)] THANK you.

[Master] No one is entirely sure of how the west end of things works.

[Velkyna (Joe)] "There be Dragons herre."

[Master] The elven lands are divided into four areas

[Defthon (Don)] And it's been disconnected from the rest of the world for how long?

[Master] (A few thousand years)

[Velkyna (Joe)] Centuries, at least.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] The older dead guy was the lord of the castle, and the former bearer of your new sun sword.

[Angie/James] Angie: what does Vel care, she kills them with her bare hands. (or shortsword)

[Master] The north is hte borderlands, with a capital of Nai:loglas.

[Velkyna (Joe)] True.

[Master] To the south are Xian, Ryle, and Envap.

[Defthon (Don)] where on the continent are the elven lands?

[Master] The southeast corner.

[Aric (Brian)] Way to the south

[Master] Just south of the orcish wastes.

[Defthon (Don)] O I C

[Shottamip (Tamora)] We've been there.

[Aric (Brian)] There are orcs on the way.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] They helped us cure the plague.

[Angie/James] lots of orcs

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (The elves helped us, not the orcs)

[Aric (Brian)] oh yeah, and there were bodaks.

[Defthon (Don)] Ok. And you don't know anything else about the sword?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Not anymore.


[Aedean (Sedlack)] Other than its name, not much

[Defthon (Don)] OOC: I was definitely waiting for that from Joe.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Lia's sword does, I'm sure. Lia?

[Master] Well, you probably have the same mission as Claidan Solius's bearer . . .

[Defthon (Don)] Ok. How did you know about the bearer?

[Master] Or, rather the Soliusvaar

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We do know that Corellen Larethian is in trouble, and these swords are trying to help him out.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We'd like to know that as well.

[Angie/James] Lia: my sword tols us.

[Angie/James] told us.

[Master] Both the swords are quiescent at this time.

[Defthon (Don)] Oh is *that* who claidan solius is.

[Angie/James] Well, that's a relief

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Divine elven swords trying to help their gods.

[Aric (Brian)] It's messed up.

[Dralafi (Jared)] What has happened to the most graceful Correlon Lorethian?

[Velkyna (Joe)] VERY messed up.

[Velkyna (Joe)] The elf god has left this land.

[Angie/James] We're not sure, there is a struggle between the gods. The balance has been upset

[Velkyna (Joe)] Possibly because the elves of this land are arrogant bigoted cocksuckers.

[Velkyna (Joe)] No offense.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Correlon's weakness has injured the elves in this land.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] You forgot "impotent"

[Velkyna (Joe)] Oh yeah.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] They haven't had any kids for 50 years.

[Velkyna (Joe)] And barren too.

[Defthon (Don)] Interesting.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] The elves were quite polite.

[Master] Okay, that's enough exposition for now.

[Angie/James] Vel's suggested that maybe they're just not 'doing it right'.

[Dralafi (Jared)] kljgdf;;;;;;;;;;

[Master] heh

[Velkyna (Joe)] They were not amused at that suggestion.

[Master] We can fill in gaps later.

[Dralafi (Jared)] the cat says hi

[Angie/James] Maybe they need tentacle porn.

[Defthon (Don)] Yes, I feel I know have a vague grasp on what's going on.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] cat?

[Aric (Brian)] Well, we can always go back for the porn, and sell it to them.

[Defthon (Don)] Roger's familiar.

[Aric (Brian)] I'm sure that Vel would be happy to do that.

[Dralafi (Jared)] no, the one on my keyboard.

[Velkyna (Joe)] It's all in the plan, Aric.

[Defthon (Don)] Oh. :)

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Another familiar. That makes 3 now.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Oh, I've got a tiny green snake wrapped around one arm.

Angie/James is receiving the map...

[Dralafi (Jared)] 0

Angie/James has received the map.

[Master] YOu keep grabbing the map before I'm ready to send it.

[Joe] I am away from the keyboard.

[Angie/James] sorry.

[Master] s'cool.

[Master] Okay, the Duke isn't quite this cute in real life.

[Master] And Ivellian's not that frowny.

[Master] Do you have the image of Ivellian I sent?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yep

[Defthon (Don)] yup

[Angie/James] But does he have that smarmy billy goat gruff?

[Master] not really

[Master] I couldn't find a good token.

[Master] The only one I liked Don was already using.

[Master] heh

[Master] Otay

[Defthon (Don)] I'll have a better one soon

[Master] The duke is happy to see you (well, I'll just use yours for Ivellian at that point) as soon as you get yourselves settled.

[Master] Waiting with him in his office is an elf with a finely wrought bow wearing leathers.

[Master] He introduces himself as Ivellian.

[Master] It is obvious that he and the Duke were chatting amiably until you arrived.

[Master] Duke Estin listens to your report on the castle and nods gravely.

[Joe] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] When you get to the part with Tristan, his face visibly darkens.

[Master] He seems abstracted for a moment, then returns.

[Master] He then thanks you for your service and offers to have one of his procurers take care of the process of selling the Shield Guardian for you.

[Master] Ok you can talk now.

[Master] :)

[Angie/James] cool

[Defthon (Don)] Joe, that's your cue

[Aedean (Sedlack)] What's the procurers cut?

[Jeff] I am away from the keyboard.

[Angie/James] Oh come on guys!

[Velkyna (Joe)] There better not be a cut.

[Master] Ten percent, much smaller than usual.

[Velkyna (Joe)] OH COME ON.

[Master] But Arkady and Vel have some pretty good contacts . . .

[Velkyna (Joe)] I know a guy.

[Master] maybe they can fence it themselves.

[Jared] Joe's alignment is chaotic greedy?

[Master] heh

[Defthon (Don)] Apparently.

[Aric (Brian)] hahaha

[Master] fifty k buys a lot of magic arrows

[Angie/James] LOL

[Velkyna (Joe)] Neutral cash-happy, actually.

[Aric (Brian)] you know, it would honor Lord Constantine the most if it watched over his grave.

[Jared] oh, sorry. my badd.

[Master] The Duke smiles indulgently at Vel's pragmatic approach to life.

[Angie/James] Arkady: does the Duke know anything more about Tristin?

[Velkyna (Joe)] I should point out that our "reward" for going ot the castle was that we could sell anything we found.

[Velkyna (Joe)] So, I'm taking the Duke up on that offer.

[Master] Arkady needs a Sense Motive check to figure that out.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] And that graverobbers would just take it anyway

[Angie/James] Arkady: sense motive: (d20+11) [12+11] 23

[Velkyna (Joe)] Right.

[Master] "Of course, Velkyna Dragonslayer. But your departure may end up hasty."

[Master] Arkady: Probably just the name.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna nods, nervous all of a sudden.

[Master] "I would not care to deny you your due because of the call of duty."

[Jeff] I am back at the keyboard.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Well, I'm not going anywhere for a few days, not in my present condition.

[Angie/James] Arkady asks the duke if there's someone we can talk to about the lich.

[Master] Ivellian looks alarmed.

[Master] "Other than myself?" Duke Estin asks.

[Angie/James] We did mention that Tristian is a lich, right?

[Master] Yes.

[Angie/James] Do we know what his plans are?

[Aric (Brian)] oh phew. for a second there i parsed that as estin saying he was a lich

[Master] You get the impression that he is still parsing.

[Angie/James] Is Tristian behind the dead-ship launchings in the Dessit harbor?

[Master] Does Arkady ask this?

[Angie/James] Yes

[Master] The Duke sits back on the desk and it creaks under the weight of him and his armor.

[Master] (Yes, he is armored even in his own study.)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Reflex save for the Duke

[Master] "I wish I could tell you the answer to that question. I do not doubt that the same entity who released the Blue Death is behind the Ghoul Army and its corresponding navy."

[Velkyna (Joe)] So the ghouls have at least two supply centers.

[Angie/James] Uh, which ghoul army would that be?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] The one that went around Dessit

[Jared] Is this navy also running Symantec software? If so, I know ways we can defeat it....

[Defthon (Don)] I pipe up. "Could you fill me in on this ghoul army and navy?

[Master] "But now they march westward, into the Baryzet Empire. March and Sail, and what sense is there in this? Why would Tristan the Lich do battle with the immortal Lich Baryzet and his empire?"

[Velkyna (Joe)] Wait, whoa.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Another Lich?


[Velkyna (Joe)] Did we know about this?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I think we heard that once.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Liches don't necessarily play nice together

[Master] "Yes, Velkyna. The floating Court is ruled by an undead master."

[Angie/James] I didn't know there was even more undead to the west of here.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] From Jarret.

Velkyna (Joe) lets out a low whistle.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We knew there were lots o' undead in the Baryzet Empire

[Angie/James] How does he (Tristian) control such a large army?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] IF it's him.

[Velkyna (Joe)] He's gotta have priest help.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Possibly Nerull, like his medallion.

[Master] "If it is Tristan, then I suspect that he controls them by promising them that which they desire -- destruction and flesh. Perhaps he has a mystic hold on his top lieutenants."

[Angie/James] Live priests or undead priests?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Right. There's also Mr. Bodak-controller down south

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Admittedly he's our best suspect for now.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Do death gods have many live priests?

[Defthon (Don)] Seriously, can you tell me more about the ghoul army and navy?

[Sedlack] I am away from the keyboard.

[Master] Duke Estin smiles, "You shall have your questions answered and more over the next several hours."

[Angie/James] We need to get everybody healed up.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel's got to go hit a real estate agent about selling a manor house, furnished.

[Master] "Ivellian, you have come a long way. What is it you needed to convey so desperately to our outlander friends?"

[Angie/James] right, here it comes...

[Master] Ivellian clears his throat. His voice is musical and light.

[Master] "Er, thank you, my lord."

[Master] "I have come for the Soliusvaar and her companions."

[Angie/James] Lia: do you mean me?

[Velkyna (Joe)] SOULREAVER

[Velkyna (Joe)] Certainly has a better ring to it than "Leafblower".

[Master] "I have been sent by the Great Wyrm Asratia on behalf of her son (and Ivellian makes a movement with his hands akin to a holy sign)."

[Jared] the soul still burns

[Master] Yes, Lia.

[Master] "Yes, Lia."

[Velkyna (Joe)] Wyrm?

[Master] He then bows to her in deference to her title.

[Angie/James] Dragon. Don't try to kill it Vel.

[Master] Ivellian glances at Duke Estin.

[Master] "Of course. Your very status means that you will be ignorant of our history."

[Master] "Asratia, the Silver Dragon, passer of eons."

[Angie/James] Arkady: we haven't had much time to catch up.

[Master] He pauses, and the Duke says, "This room is warded against spying. If you are to speak freely, let it be hear."

[Master] (oops, here.)

[Velkyna (Joe)] I take it silver dragons are nice?

[Master] Ivellian continues, "She who bears the child of Corellon Lorethian."

[Shottamip (Tamora)] All the metallics are good creatures.

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Defthon (Don)] !!!

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Jared] !!!

[Dralafi (Jared)] !!!

[Velkyna (Joe)] Congratulations, Lia!

[Angie/James] Might Lia be related to her then?

[Velkyna (Joe)] When's it due?

[Master] "For three score and sixteen years, Asratia has carried this child. In a matter of months, she shall give birth."

[Velkyna (Joe)] Oh, the dragon. My badd.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I thought we were still talking about Lia.

[Sedlack] I am back at the keyboard.

[Angie/James] That's gotta be a big baby.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Dragons and gods both have long gestation periods

[Defthon (Don)] How long has Corellon Larethian been missing?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Is the child of a god and a dragon going to be a god, do you think?

[Velkyna (Joe)] demi-dragon.

[Defthon (Don)] god only knows.

[Aric (Brian)] A dragon god, maybe?

[Master] Ivellian responds, "We are told that Asratia's daughter will be a new and shining light upon the world."

[Aric (Brian)] It's Master Haku!

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Not that there's anything wrong with being a dragon.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I'm part dragon, you know.

Velkyna (Joe) rolls her eyes.

[Defthon (Don)] Really?

[Master] Ivellian's gaze turns onto Shottamip.

[Velkyna (Joe)] To Def: Don't start. Seriously.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Great. So what does that have to do with us?

[Defthon (Don)] O...kay....

[Master] "As the bearer of a goddess, Asratia is sometimes given to prophesy. One prophesy was quite clear to me -- that I was to come to Dessit after the blue plague and bring the Soliusvaar and her companions to the elf lands."

[Angie/James] But we just left the elf lands!

[Velkyna (Joe)] Wait, we have to go _back_ to the elf lands?

[Master] "But one part confuses me; I am also to find the bearer of Tsohanoai, lost these many years. I do not know how I will find him."

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Not just left, exactly - it was over a month ago.

[Angie/James] Lia: I'm commited to return.

[Defthon (Don)] "Ummm....

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Well, unfortunately, because of that whole plague thing, we had to make the side trip

[Defthon (Don)] *clears throat*

[Master] Ivellian glances at Defthon

[Angie/James] Arkady nudges Defthon

[Velkyna (Joe)] In elf time, it's like we left yesterday.

[Defthon (Don)] Now would be a good time to introduce myself.

[Defthon (Don)] I was just teleported to this continent... a few hours ago... upon becoming the Tsohanoaivaar.

[Defthon (Don)] I stand and slowly draw the sword.

[Master] It shines powerfully, throwing the room into contrast.

Velkyna (Joe) shields her eyes.

[Angie/James] You schwartz is as big as mine!

[Master] It brightens slowly, leaching all color from the surroundings.

[Defthon (Don)] It seems your Asratia is a good prophet.

[Master] Ivellian draws his bow from his pack and places one end of it on the floor, then genuflects while holding it upright.

[Master] His face is calm when he rises.

[Defthon (Don)] No reason to keep it out, so I sheath it again.

[Defthon (Don)] My quest is to recover Corellon Larethian from his captivity.

[Master] Ivellian strides toward Defthon and offers his hand.

[Defthon (Don)] More I do not know; but it would seem you do.

[Master] "We are well met, Paladin."

[Defthon (Don)] Yes. *shakes hand*

[Dralafi (Jared)] I give Def a bit of a glare for the reference to Correlon Larethian as 'he'.

[Master] The elf looks up.

[Defthon (Don)] Jared: what?

[Angie/James] Lia: so where are we going?


[Master] "When can we leave?"

[Defthon (Don)] "When will you be ready?"

[Dralafi (Jared)] Don: Correllon Larethian is androgynous.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Tomorrow, I suppose, unless something's come up for the duke.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I could REALLY use a day or two to rest and recover my strength

[Angie/James] Some of us require healing

[Velkyna (Joe)] I could REALLY use a day or two to rest and recover our swag.

[Defthon (Don)] Jared: Not according to the PH. Or, perhaps, the chick dragon carrying his child. But what do I know?

[Velkyna (Joe)] In old-school AD&D, CL was androgynous.

[Master] (ooc) I was going by the PH, which has him as a boy.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Alt, hermaphroditic.

[Master] On Serendair, he is a boy.

[Defthon (Don)] Whatever.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm assuming the PC new 3rd ed cleansed the gender-bending weirdness.

[Master] In the outside world, he's hermaphroditic.

[Master] So there we are.

[Aric (Brian)] Well, Vecna's a god now. Not everything from old AD&D is in 3rd Ed :)

[Master] heh

[Velkyna (Joe)] True.

[Master] "How quickly can you gather your strength?"

[Dralafi (Jared)] ooc: Deities and Demigods returns him to androgyny.

[Master] ...asks Ivellian.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Though Vecna was deified in old school 1st ed. world of greyhawk,

[Aric (Brian)] i've never actually played D&D prior to 3rd ed. i've just hung around people like you too long ;)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I can be in shape to travel in 36 hours or so

[Aric (Brian)] Give us 2 days.

[Defthon (Don)] Aside from healing, we should recover our spells.

[Angie/James] We could do it faster if we want to spend a lot of money.

[Aric (Brian)] We will also need to procure provisions for the trip, etc.

[Master] "Then I shall return in a day's time."

[Roger (Jeff)] Booooooooooring. Let's go now!

[Defthon (Don)] If we have outside healers, we could leave by tomorrow morning, no?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Nope. I need 36 hours regardless

[Aric (Brian)] Oh, is someone going to restore Lia's con?

[Angie/James] Lia needs CON and HP.

[Master] "I have other errands to run in the City of Dessit. Let us come together in the day and one half which your cleric requires."

[Defthon (Don)] *raises eyebrow* Fine, that's not unreasonable.

[Defthon (Don)] Yes.

[Defthon (Don)] (what time is it now?)

[Angie/James] OK.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Evening, I thought.

[Master] It's getting into night.

[Master] Remember, you waited until dusk to do Part 2 of the dungeon crawl.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Right.

[Aric (Brian)] We can leave in the morning in two days.

[Master] Duke Estin suggests a meal and then bed.

[Defthon (Don)] Sounds good to me.

[Angie/James] Sounds like a plan.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Sounds like a good idea to me

[Jared] agreed

[Velkyna (Joe)] Meal would be nice. But then Arkady and vel have some swag selling to do.

[Angie/James] chaotic greedy indeed.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm looking out for the party's share, man.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Someone's got to cover the financial angle.

[Angie/James] It can wait until tomorrow.

[Master] Definitely.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Or we'd all be broke.

[Velkyna (Joe)] And broke adventurers aren't vanquishing jack squat for evil.

[Aric (Brian)] What is wrong with taking a vow of poverty?

[Angie/James] Are we going to take a real break, say 1/2 hour for food and such?

[Master] Okay, I'm gonna do some money stuff, and then you can buy some stuff, and then we should head to the elven lands.

Velkyna (Joe) is having trouble parsing Aric's sentence.

[Master] Let's do that.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Sounds like a plan.

[Master] Joe, James, I'd like to talk through what you do to get money and what you spend it on.

[Angie/James] OK.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Well, I figure the house is full of saleable stuff. Tapestries, paintings, furnishings, dry goods, etc.

[Master] Defthon finds himself in possession of a somewhat, um, superflous magical Bastard Sword.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Food, wine casks, etc.

[Angie/James] I presume we've talked to several mages in the area, during our shopping expiditions.

[Master] That depends. Does anyone wish to simply lay claim to it?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Claim to what?

[Master] The Constantin family is gone, root and branch.

[Master] The castle.

[Defthon (Don)] Does anyone else here wield a bastard sword?

[Master] A quick glance around reveals that no one does.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We also would be interested in selling off the castle.

[Angie/James] I don't think anyone uses a bastard sword.

[Defthon (Don)] *Can* anyone?

[Velkyna (Joe)] No.

[Defthon (Don)] If not, I'll sell it.

[Master] Yes, but Lia's already covered.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We could sell or trade that too.

[Defthon (Don)] Right.

[Dralafi (Jared)] cant anyone with martial profiuciency use one two handed?

[Aric (Brian)] It would make a good monastery some day.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] not me.

[Angie/James] I'd think the land and such would revert back to the Duke, yes?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I would agree.

[Velkyna (Joe)] NO.

[Velkyna (Joe)] OUR CASTLE.

[Velkyna (Joe)] OUR LAND.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I have no desire for a castle

[Defthon (Don)] *sigh*

[Dralafi (Jared)] if so, I could use a magical hand wepon if things got tough...

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's why we SELL IT.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I already have one property.

[Velkyna (Joe)] To someone who wants land.

[Angie/James] Arkady thinks a castle implies resonsibility.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Right, which is why we SELL IT.

[Aric (Brian)] We could keep it for now, and sell it later when we have more time to negotiate.

[Master] Duke Estin lays a hand on Velkyna's shoulder.

Velkyna (Joe) jumps like the devil touched her.

[Angie/James] Oh come on, we're not discussing this in front of him, are we?

[Aric (Brian)] Or covert it to a home for the orphaned children of Dessit.

[Master] "The land is mine to give. I shall compensate you myself."

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Ew

Velkyna (Joe) nods nervously.

[Velkyna (Joe)] "Thank you."

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I kind of like Aric's idea.

[Master] Estin nods.

[Angie/James] There are probably plenty of orphans after the plague hit.

[Master] "I shall hold it in trust upon your return, Aric."

[Defthon (Don)] "A medium-size char can use a bastard sword two-handed as a martial weapon."

[Master] Right, and not a lot of these folks have Martial Weapon Proficiency

[Angie/James] Lia likes the idea of taking care of orphans.

[Defthon (Don)] Dralafi does.

[Aric (Brian)] Where's Mennadon when you need 'im.

[Jared] But dral does. hooks me up :)

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel actually looks torn on the idea.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean also supports orphan care

[Defthon (Don)] Yup. I give him the sword. Always handy to have. :)

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Max would never give up his paired swords.

[Angie/James] Arkady: Vel, you were an orphan once, weren't you?

[Aric (Brian)] Well, if he continues to have more attacks per round, I figure at some point he'll spout a third arm to use.

Velkyna (Joe) glances away for a moment, then nods.

[Angie/James] You know, the proceeds from the sale of the guardian would help pay operating expenses.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (Our party is orphano-riffic!)

[Angie/James] After our expenses of course. :-)

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel sighs. "Yeah, it would."

[Master] The castle and its furnishings are worth something like 150,000 GP

[Master] Maybe 200,000

[Velkyna (Joe)] GAG

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna spit-takes.

[Master] Location, location, location

[Defthon (Don)] hee

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Let's worry about paying for it when we return and set it up.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna then takes another sip of wine and promptly spit-takes a second time.

[Angie/James] Lia goes to pat Vel on the back. "You OK?"

[Velkyna (Joe)] Fine. (*cough*) Fine.

[Master] What was the conclusion, then?

[Angie/James] Orphanage.

[Master] You're holding onto it to allow it to be used as an orphanage?

[Master] Grand Dame Sarah Estin offers eagerly to buy the Shield Guardian from you.

[Master] She has a few magic items she'd prefer to trade instead of cash, though.

[Angie/James] You know, I'm kinda worried about her.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] What kind of magic items?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] This family could use some protection.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Would the orphanage have to pay for the property tax on it. I don't want to have to pull a "Blues Brothers" in a few months.

[Master] The Duke will see to things.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Good.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] non-profits are exempt from most taxes.

[Defthon (Don)] worried why?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Besides, we're already on a mission from God

[Angie/James] Actually, I think Vel would be amused to pull such a caper once a year.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Actually, it's a mission from Sword. It's a mission FOR a god.

[Velkyna (Joe)] This is true.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Once a week, more like it.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] The family is the subject of prophecies, and those rarely end with "and they all lived happily every after."

[Angie/James] OK, so what's the items Sarah is talking about.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Plus, we lost her brother.

[Angie/James] point

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yeah, she should really pay us for that

[Angie/James] Well, he lost himself.

[Master] just a sec

[Angie/James] He was old enough to know better.

[Velkyna (Joe)] He was also a minor jagbag.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Not as much of a jagbag as Tristan, admittedly.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Well, yes. I don't feel too guilty. But we were there when it happened.

[Aric (Brian)] We're not saying this in front of the duke, are we?

[Velkyna (Joe)] NO.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Nah.

[Velkyna (Joe)] GODS NO.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I figured that once we were talking to Sarah or her agent, we'd left the study.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Eating dinner or hanging out or whatever.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Not that we're saying this in front of her, either

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yeah, I figured we were noshing.

[Master] Indeed not.

[Angie/James] She didn't care much for her brother anyway.

[Master] Yes, after the one comment, the Duke left you alone.

[Master] Sarah offers you a 6x9 flying carpet.

[Master] Capacity 1200 lb.

[Angie/James] Ohh, nifty. Don't have to keep borrowing the Dukes'.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Actually, thanks to the increased party size, we do

[Angie/James] Some of us can't fly on our own power for very long, you know.

[Master] It's a step in the right direction.

[Master] (Sarah says, smiling.)

[Master] Market value is about 51,000 GP.

[Angie/James] Vel, you could use it to haul extra treasure.

[Velkyna (Joe)] (she did say "itemS") Vel thinks.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Better than 51000 GP in horses

[Angie/James] Unless they were flying horses.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean does not relish the thought of falling off a flying horse, thank you very much

[Master] CLUNK

[Master] ow

[Velkyna (Joe)] THUD

[Master] Ioun stone, take me away!

[Velkyna (Joe)] We should also figure out who gets the other magic items we found.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I figure Aric or Lia should get the Ring of Prot.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Probably Aric, since Lia can +4 AC from the boots.

[Angie/James] Yeah, we still have to fight over the ring of Prot +2

[Velkyna (Joe)] Although, if Aedean can't seem to keep his pants on, maybe he should have it.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I mean, armor.

[Master] What kind of bonus does Mage Armor grant?

[Master] Deflection, magic, pants?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean certainly is the worst off when he's unarmored

[Defthon (Don)] The cleric should definitely have a variety of protective equipment.

[Velkyna (Joe)] +4 armor bonus.

[Master] ok kewl

[Master] It makes a lot of sense to give it to Aedean.

[Velkyna (Joe)] This is true.


[Aedean (Sedlack)] Ring of Prot is a deflection bonus, so it will stack with my armor

[Velkyna (Joe)] Right.

[Master] Let's get this wrapped up relatively quickly.

[Angie/James] Of course, he's getting the shield too.

[Master] Who wants to haggle with Sarah?

[Velkyna (Joe)] ARKADY.

[Angie/James] But that's fine with us. Protect the cleric.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Someone else can have the Caster's Shield if they want it

[Angie/James] What is there to haggle? We're already getting a good deal.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I prefer the buckler, as it leaves me a free hand

Velkyna (Joe) sighs, shaking her head.

[Aric (Brian)] I'm fine with Aedean having it. He heals me when I'm hurting.

[Master] Heh.

[Velkyna (Joe)] He also knows when you've been sleeping.

[Velkyna (Joe)] And knows when you're awake.

[Angie/James] There aren't many people who can even use the caster's shield.

[Velkyna (Joe)] SELL IT.

[Master] Yeah, that might be a seller.

[Master] Unless Roger wants it.

[Velkyna (Joe)] What about the +1 armor.

[Velkyna (Joe)] It's plate armor, right? Or full plate?

[Angie/James] Sell the armor, unless the Paladin wants it.

[Master] Paladin doesn't want it.

[Aric (Brian)] Ewww, armor.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We're also selling the random other crap we found, like the alch fire and the masterwork bows.

[Roger (Jeff)] I don't think a shield is very Rogery

[Aedean (Sedlack)] My armor is better than that, sell it

[Velkyna (Joe)] Were we getting reimbursed for the healing we had to buy mid-stream?

[Defthon (Don)] sorry, no, my armor's already good.

[Master] No.

[Master] No reimbursing for that stuff; considered part of adventuring.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Then I think we should sell this shit and then give the money to Arkady, who ponied up the money for the healing.

[Angie/James] We did alright anyway.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Fair enough

[Velkyna (Joe)] Assuming it's <=1800gp

[Velkyna (Joe)] Anything over, we'll split.

[Angie/James] Fine. That was how much the scrolls cost.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Right.

[Angie/James] good.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Go ahead and sell the Caster's Shield, if no one else wants it.

[Angie/James] Unless we want to put that stuff in the deal with Sarah?

[Velkyna (Joe)] If she wants it, hey. Fine.

[Angie/James] Magic is better than money.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Not unless she's giving us more

[Master] Sarah has no particular desire for anythin go ther than the SHield Guardian.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Right.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Fine, Arkady and I know a guy.

[Angie/James] Fine. sell it all them.

[Angie/James] And we know guys that know guys.

[Master] Sure thing.

[Master] Okay, you are selling Full Plate +1 and a Caster's Shield?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Plus a thing of alchemists fire, a chalice of 100gp

[Velkyna (Joe)] and two masterwork mighty +2 bows.

[Aric (Brian)] Who had the floating shield thing?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Mike: I am stuffing a Flame Strike into the Ioun Stone to replace the Raise Dead I cast on Constantin

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Max had the floating shield

[Velkyna (Joe)] And 53 sp.

[Angie/James] where is Neil anyway?

[Aric (Brian)] Drat. It'd be cool to have TWO floating shields that rotate around you.

[Master] ok

[Angie/James] reminds me of Super Thunder Force II, for the Sega Genisis

[Velkyna (Joe)] Neil's busy this weekend, so I hear.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We didn't find another of those....

[Master] If anyone feels like adding up the total cost on those suckers, you get 75% of what they're worth, due to transaction costs and time.

[Aric (Brian)] This is why you cast a float shield spell on it, duh.

[Master] Gimme a Diplomacy check.

[Master] Arkady.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I don't have books, else I'd do the calcs.

[Angie/James] Arkady: diplomacy: (d20+13) [5+13] 18

[Master] Okay, make that 73%.

[Velkyna (Joe)] ARKADY.

[Aric (Brian)] Dude, equip the Tonberry GF. It'll give you the sell-high ability.

[Angie/James] sorry guys.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Caster's shield: 3153 gp (market)

[Master] C'est la vie.

[Angie/James] Tonberry what?

[Master] Guardia Force.

[Aric (Brian)] Final Fantasy VIII. sorry :)

[Master] It's a Final Fantasy reference, I think.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] full plate +1: 2500 gp

[Aric (Brian)] ability that lets you sell things in shops for a better price

[Aedean (Sedlack)] need any other info, Joe?

[Velkyna (Joe)] masterwork mighty +2 longbow

[Velkyna (Joe)] And masterwork mighty +2 shortbow.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I.e. non-magical, +2 mighty.

[Velkyna (Joe)] and a flask of alchemist's fire.

[Angie/James] Actually , we should hang on to the alchemist's fire.

[Angie/James] Never know when you're going to need it.

[Velkyna (Joe)] s'true.

[Roger (Jeff)] I can make more, if necessary

[Angie/James] Never know when you want to burn a building to the ground, or some such.

[Angie/James] cool.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] fireballs.

[Aric (Brian)] By the power of Leafblower!

[Velkyna (Joe)] Or, y'know, burn down evidence of your smuggling ring.

[Master] Ok, how's the math work out?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Oops, perhaps I've said too much.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Waiting on Sedlack with the mighty bows.

[Master] Viola's a bad influence on you, Joe.

[Velkyna (Joe)] S'true.

[Angie/James] the quiet part loud and the loud part quiet, eh?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Mighty +2 Longbow: 675 gp

[Master] I just drank way too much soda.

[Master] *twitch*

[Jared] ok, the part where I just edited a bunch of weapons and the editing all disappeared makes me sad.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Mighty +2 shortbow: 555 gp

[Master] FUXXOR

[Master] What happened?

[Master] You gotta hit enter after every field is entered.

[Jared] I dunno.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Okay, with the chalice and the silver, that's 6988.3 total.

[Velkyna (Joe)] 5101.459 after the 0.73

[Jared] yeah. I added entries for the bastard sword, and stuff for using +3 arrows for when necessary. Then I clicked save.

[Jared] it was all there.

[Jared] then I left the tab. then it was all gone.

[Velkyna (Joe)] 3301.459 after taking off 1800 to reimburse Arkady.

[Velkyna (Joe)] (Arkady, you're reimbursed)

[Velkyna (Joe)] (add 1800)

[Shottamip (Tamora)] you must hit save, then view.

[Angie/James] cool

[Shottamip (Tamora)] it's stupid.

[Jared] YEah, I did that too.

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] How many in the party now? Nine?

[Defthon (Don)] Yup

[Angie/James] BTW, do we want to buy another wand or two of CLW?

[Angie/James] Mine's down to 20 charges.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I picked up another last time we stopped

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Plus Ivellian makes 10, for transport.

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's 366.83 (rounded) gp.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Which is 366 gp, 8 sp, 3cp

[Velkyna (Joe)] Each.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I just got an error message about some char sheet...

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ivellian isn't getting a party share.

[Master] Indeed.

[Master] Weird.

[Defthon (Don)] Weird, I just... yeah, I got a char sheet error too.

[Master] I did not get the error message...

[Defthon (Don)] It was an EOFException

[Angie/James] We got it too.

[Jared] I didnt...

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ditto here.

[Aric (Brian)] i did

[Master] Jared, I think you did it.

[Jared] go me!

[Aric (Brian)] it's all your fault jared!

[Velkyna (Joe)] JARED.

[Dralafi (Jared)] hangs his head in shame.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Now that we no longer have Jerritt, Jared wil plague us

[Velkyna (Joe)] Great. I'm not standing behind Dralafi.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Anyway, everyone gets 366, 8, 3

[Master] Heh.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Unless we're buying another wand of CLW.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Or three.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I think we're good on that for now

[Angie/James] Well, we're probably OK for now.

[Velkyna (Joe)] S'cool. We bought the first round from the elves anyway.

[Velkyna (Joe)] They'll probably sell us some more if we need them.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Mike, we're squared away on the cash.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I assume we all get healed at some point?

[Master] Okay.

[Master] Yes.

[Defthon (Don)] psst, chris...

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Hey, Mike, Aedean needs to check out Defthon's condition

[Master] Defthon's on it.

[Joe] I am away from the keyboard.

[Aric (Brian)] well htat was simple to add, since i had no money

[Defthon (Don)] IC: "my sword tells me I have some weird parasite." OOC: I've got a slaad egg in me. It can be sensed with Detect Evil, and removed with Remove Curse.

[Joe] I am back at the keyboard.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] ooc: It can also be removed with a Heal check

[Master] Aedean has heard of such things.

[Velkyna (Joe)] EWW

[Defthon (Don)] Uh? Not according to the Monster manual.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] The one online says so

[Defthon (Don)] I don't have it with me now, but it specifically said that it can only be removed with a Remove Curse.

[Defthon (Don)] "the one online"? Where is this of which you speak?

[Angie/James] So they don't have a salve for that?

[Velkyna (Joe)]

[Master] Jared, try signing off and back on.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I just got another java error

[Master] Yeah.

[Angie/James] me too

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Me three

[Master] They're flying fast and furious.

[Jared] ok

Jared has left the game.

[Master] Okay, everybody save whatever you're doing, write down what you've just changed, and let me know when you're ready for me to restart.

Jared has joined the game.

Tamora has left the game.

Tamora has joined the game.

[Angie/James] ready

[Velkyna (Joe)] I haven't changed anything. Was going to do it after the session.

[Jared] map me?

[Roger (Jeff)] okay

[Master] I"m gonna quit shortly and restart.

[Master] 15 secs

[Velkyna (Joe)] Hokay.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] okay

[Aric (Brian)] should we restart too?

Don has joined the game.

[Master] Heal CHeck DC 20

[Sedlack] I'll use a charge off the Healer's Kit for a +2

[Master] Take 20 in a comfortable room and you're all set.

[Don] Slaads don't appear to be in the online monster manual, unless I'm missing something

[Sedlack] Hell, I'll take 10

[Sedlack] hat's a 22

[Angie/James] Just like popping a zit then, huh Aedean?

[Sedlack] Pretty much

[Joe] I am back at the keyboard.

[Don] It's embedded deep in my chest cavity, actually.

[Master] Thank you Jared.

[Don] It burrowed in there and would stay there for three months, incubating.

[Sedlack] It takes a verrry steady hand

[Don] Then eat its way out.

[Don] Apparently.

[Don] Thanks!

[Sedlack] Well, it's gone now

[Master] Anyway, one presumably uses an herb poultice that kills the thing at which point it passes.

[Joe] For the record, Erica's sweet potatos kick ass.

[Don] I totally failed to parse that sentence, Mike.

[Master] okey dokey.

[Don] but whatever.

[Master] Surgery in medieval times was dicey.

[Angie/James] Aren't you going to keep it as a souvenier (sp?)

[Master] I imagine it's more of an "antibiotic" thing.

[Don] iw.

[Master] I expect it was kind of destroyed in the curative process.

[Master] Is everyone here?

[Joe] Here

[Sedlack] Yep

[Roger (Jeff)] yo

[Jared] heyo

[Brian] word

[Angie/James] yes

[Don] yup

[Master] Okay!

[Brian] brb. bathroom break, and i'm going to start the oven heating so i can reheat my pizza.

[Master] Has everyone bought the things they'd like to buy?

[Brian] I am away from the keyboard.

[Don] wow, we almost managed that in rainbow order. Good work!

[Jared] how much is a magic arrow making machine?

[Joe] I'm going to buy another 30 xbow bolts, if we're going to go to the land of the no crossbows again.

[Master] They're called "Paladins," and they're cheap if you can trick them into following you around.

[Joe] That's 3gp.

[Jared] ooh, good idea.

[Sedlack] I'm ready...

[Angie/James] who me, it's free.

[Master] Good deal.

[Don] Sort of---I can only do it to one weapon per spell, and at that only twice daily.

[Don] Unless I'm missing something.

[Master] 20 arrows per casting.

[Don] oh, nifty.

[Master] Defthon's magic symbol is much more . . . pelor-like today.

[Angie/James] I'll cast greater magic weapon once a day in the morning on 50 arrows.

[Angie/James] Then they'll be +3 for 9 hours.

[Master] ayuh

[Angie/James] What did he convert or something?

[Master] Why don't you ask him?

[Joe] Arkady, can you do a mix of arrows and bolts, or just arrows OR bolts?

[Angie/James] No, only one type of weapon per spell.

[Sedlack] Hey, Defthon, what happened to your holy symbol?

[Joe] sukk.

[Brian] I am back at the keyboard.

[Jared] I should warn you: I go through arrows rapidly :)

[Angie/James] Mike: suppose I cast GMW on my longbow, and then store it in my glove.

[Master] That's pretty kewl.

[Angie/James] ... does the spell go into stasis like a torch does?

[Don] Well... my goddess has instructed me to... well, I'm sort of on loan to Pelor right now.

[Master] No.

[Angie/James] How many crossbow users do we have in the party now?

[Joe] yo

[Angie/James] Vel, Aric, and who else?

[Brian] yeah, i need to buy some bolts too

[Brian] 25 would be good

[Master] ok

[Tamora] I have one, but only for when I'm out of spells.

[Master] Seriously, folks, buy all the little shit you need.

[Tamora] That doesn't really happen anymore.

[Sedlack] Technically, Aedean has a crossbow, but he almost never uses it

[Angie/James] ...and that hardly ever happens anymore.

[Brian] how much are 25 bolts?

[Jared] 1 gp per 10

[Joe] They're 1gp for 10.

[Master] An inconceivably small amount of money.

[Brian] ok, actually i only need 20

[Master] I guess they're MILSPEC bolts.

[Master] Dang.

[Brian] so i'll do that. i'd buy more shurikens, but they're useless

[Brian] except for flavor

[Joe] The new party people are still dinged up, hp-wise.

[Master] After bouncing around and running lots of fun errands, the Party reconvenes in Duke Estin's study.

[Master] whoop.

[Angie/James] you should buy masterwork bolts. for the +1

[Joe] Not a value proposition.

[Don] How much are wands of CLW?

[Joe] 750gp, IIRC.

[Joe] Maybe 450.

[Don] ok.

[Master] 750

[Joe] Something like that.

[Sedlack] Hey, Mike, could you reload Aedean? I want to see if he has the correct AC now....

[Master] ok

[Master] Did that do it?

[Brian] having fun, joe?

[Sedlack] It claims an AC of 11.

[Joe] Immeasurably, thanks.

[Sedlack] Which wouldn't count his armor

[Master] That's a touch AC.

[Don] hee hee


[Master] FIxed.

[Sedlack] It should be 24, with the RoPrt...

[Jared] Dralafi: Tumble: (d20+13) [8+13] 21

[Joe] Velkyna: Tumble: (d20+21) [5+21] 26

[Brian] Aric: Tumble: (d20+10) [1+10] 11

[Master] You typoed it.

[Jared] curses.

[Master] I'll fix it.

[Joe] Nyah nyah.

[Master] bling bling

[Jared] stupid cross class skills

[Sedlack] Oops. I must have changed the touch AC, and forgot the overall

[Master] Who is carrying the flying carpet, and where is it being carried?

[Brian] critical fail on the tumble :)

[Joe] Probably in a bag.

[Master] Okay, whose bag?

[Angie/James] Where are we going anyway?

[Joe] Who's _got_ a bag?

[Master] You'll see!

[Angie/James] I volunteer Aric.

[Master] ok

[Angie/James] For the bag that is.

[Joe] S'cool.

[Brian] just a bag, as opposed to a bag of holding?

[Brian] cause i'm one of the few without magic bags

[Don] How much does the carpet weigh?

[Joe] Dunno.

[Master] 15 lb

[Angie/James] Doesn't Aric have a bag of holding?

[Joe] Aric could even strap it across his back.

[Brian] nope

[Angie/James] If it is that light, I could put it in my haversack

[Master] Aric should consider purchasing a Handy Haversack.

[Brian] i just have a big sack i carry my supplies

[Master] They seem to be all the rage.

[Brian] with my 346 GP?

[Master] hee

[Master] Maybe not.

[Brian] i blew my money on the sandals, remember?

[Don] I could put it in my bag of holding

[Master] okay, the carpet is in Arkady's Handy Haversack.

[Brian] buying crossbow bolts dug into my funds quite a bit :)


[Master] Thanks.


[Master] Ivellian meets you at dawn of the next day, almost 36 hours since you'd spoken.

[Master] "Are you prepared to leave Dessit?" he asks.

[Angie/James] yes

[Don] Yes.

[Master] (The Duke's not there.)

[Joe] The Vel abides.

[Master] "Excellent."

[Master] "I have a helm of teleportation. I suggest that I take Shottamip and two others of you with me to Cloudhome,

[Joe] Helm of TP? IT'S TRISTAN.

[Master] and then Shottamip and I can return for the rest of you."

[Tamora] Ok by me.

[Don] Sure

[Angie/James] have we ever seen Ivellian and Tristian in the same room?

[Master] "Who would care to accompany me first?"



[Master] ok

[Master] 1 more

[Jared] IT'S A TRAP

[Master] Excellent

[Don] Mike, jas

[Master] sure

[Angie/James] I don't like teleporting.

[Joe] Wuss.

[Angie/James] Well, Arkady doesn't.

[Master] Roll #1: 64

[Velkyna (Joe)] Everybody should get back to chatting as chars, post-reboot.

[Master] The four of them disappear....

[Aedean (Sedlack)] ll

[Velkyna (Joe)] What are the odds of meeting two people with Helms of teleportation in two days?

[Master] You are standing on the back of what appears to be an enormous floating manta ray.

[Master] Its skin is a beige color, desert sand.

[Master] (The icon in the lower left is a pic from the Monster Manual II.

[Master] )

[Velkyna (Joe)] This, I gotta see.

[Master] You are surrounded by cloud.

[Master] Ivellian points to a sigil on the ground.

[Don] I'm really not worried about Ivellian.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] This is nice.

[Master] "Shottamip, take a moment to memorize this sign. It is used only here."

[Brian] I think I remember this level from Golden Axe.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Heh.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] looks at the symbol for a couple minutes.

[Master] "Lia, Roger, do not stray far, please. You are not known here.

[Master] "

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Dragon Scales: provides the target with a +4 armor bonus to AC for the next 11 hours

[Master] On the west are a few barracks-like structures; on the right a warehouse thingy and what has to be a kitchen.

[Don] pee break while the teleportation is going on. brb

[Don] I am away from the keyboard.

[Master] In the lower right, there is a stable where -- I shit you not -- two gryphons are currently roosted. There are three blank spaces as well.

[Master] An elven ranger strolls up to you, and Ivellian explains the situation and introduces all of you.

[Master] Shottamip finishes memorizing the sigil.

[Master] "Are you ready?" Ivellian asks.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Yes.

[Master] Ivellian takes her hand.

[Master] Roll #1: 52

[Master] They return to the office.

[Master] "Let us go, then."

[Don] I am back at the keyboard.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Who's with me?

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'll go with hunkie. I've seen Shottamip's TPing.

[Angie/James] I'll give Shottamip a go.

[Don] Whoever's closer.

[Master] Shottamip concentrates.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Teleport: transports herself and up to (50*11) [50*11] 550 pounds of willing creatures to another location, teleport check (1d100) [8] 8

[Master] No problem.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Whee

[Master] Ivellian concentrates....

[Angie/James] whew!

[Master] Roll #1: 98

[Master] jas

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Uh-oh

[Velkyna (Joe)] DOH

[Dralafi (Jared)] doh!

[Don] D'OH!

[Angie/James] Arkady dodged the bullet this time.

[Angie/James] Arkady hopes the rest of you have featherfall or fly.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Well, that' explains the facial.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I think this is probably "off target"

[Master] Yeah.

[Master] jas

[Angie/James] Too bad Arkady has the carpet too.

[Don] It'll be ok; assuming he's "very familiar" with the spot, we'll just be a bit off target.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Assuming.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Where "a bit" is 1d10*1d10%

[Angie/James] 1d10 * 1d10 percent

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!!!!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] And the total distance is on the order of thousands of miles

[Angie/James] So do they appear in the middle of the air?

[Velkyna (Joe)]

[Jared] welcome to the middle of nowhere, guys

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Walk on the ocean

[Don] urk, yeah, I was just reading that part

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Step on the stone

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Flesh becomes water

[Master] Vel, Def, Aric.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] You are so boned

[Velkyna (Joe)] Are we boned?

[Master] You feel feel as though you were going to appear in the wrong place, perhaps over the ocean.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Say hi to the Dane for us

[Master] THen, a sudden yanking, and you are on Cloudhome.

[Velkyna (Joe)] "What the fuck was that?"

[Don] Oof!

[Don] What the hell just happened?

[Velkyna (Joe)] map us.

[Master] Ivellian collapses to hands and knees, and loses his lunch.

[Master] Once he is finished, he stands, looking sheepish and wan.

[Angie/James] Arkady: ya see? That's why I don't like teleporting.

[Master] "That will teach me not to fully center myself."

[Brian] sorry, i went to put the pizza in the oven and forgot to click away. back now. man, i guess i missed out on the action.

[Master] "I believe we nearly teleported into the wyld storm.

[Master] "

[Angie/James] Angie: that would be bad.

[Brian] If we had, we could have been rescued by taking those Wyld Stallyns you have over there."

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Wow. What is this place?

[Master] "Perhaps a set of clouds formed the sigil you stand on."

[Master] "At any rate, it was not safe, and we were pulled here instead, as our original destination."

[Don] how?

[Master] "I am sorry; I am a terrible host."

[Angie/James] Lia: dont' argue with luck from the gods, just say "thank you"

[Don] er, yes.

[Master] "Welcome to Cloudhome, built on the corpus of the largest Cloud Ray ever known."

[Brian] It happens.

[Don] cool!

[Angie/James] As in a dead cloud ray?

[Master] "The body has been preserved through certain mystical techniques after the creature passed on from old age."

[Master] "Its magics which allow it to levitate function even after its death."

[Velkyna (Joe)] Sweet. Merciful. Crap.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel is literally gape-mouthed.

[Master] "We even have the capacity to steer the beast, should we so choose, and we move constantly to avoid detection."

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Mmm...Gentle Repose

[Dralafi (Jared)] OOC: Just so I can make food plans, how long are we gonna be playing?

[Master] I'm thinking 2 hours more puts Jeff at midnight, we gotta quit somewhere near then.

[Dralafi (Jared)] IC: Breahtaking

[Roger (Jeff)] I can go all night long, baby

[Ivellian] To the west are our living quarters.

[Ivellian] Over here is our kitchen and some storage.

[Don] yeah, I'm in EDT too but no need to stop on my account. :)

[Velkyna (Joe)] I can go all night like a lumberjack.

[Ivellian] And over on the wing's edge lie our stables. Some of our Rangers keep their Gryphons here.

[Don] I need to leave before 8am tomorrow morning, though.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel peers over the edge.

[Don] What is the big building to the south?

[Ivellian] At the center is Asratia's cra'hedth . . . there is not a word for it in Common.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] So who does have a time limit?

[Ivellian] Something like a temple, like a lair.

[Don] Ok.

[Ivellian] Or perhaps merely a holy home.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'm just going to call it a cathedral

[Don] What are we... over, then?

[Ivellian] Currently? The western edge of the borderlands.

[Don] I peer over the edge

[Ivellian] We are, as always, in the center of a great cloud.

[Angie/James] Angie and James can go for at least a couple more hours.

[Master] Defthon can see nothing

[Ivellian] I can have one of our Rangers give you a tour, if you would like.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Of the city, or of the cloud?

[Ivellian] Of the area beneath us.

[Master] Scale is correct, BTW. This is not a huge place.

[Master] Well, it is.

[Master] But not in a "town" kind of way.

[Angie/James] Lia: so are we supposed to guard the dragon and the child soon to be born?

[Ivellian] Let us start by meeting her, shall we?

[Don] !!!

[Angie/James] Works for us. She's here?

[Ivellian] Ivellian points toward the cra'hedth and says, "If you will follow me, we are expected."

[Don] Ok then.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Bearers first.

[Angie/James] OK

[Shottamip (Tamora)] We're just "companions."

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Hmmm

[Ivellian] The doors to the cra'hedth are twenty feet on each side.

[Ivellian] There is a fountain to the west, and the floor is covered with cloudy fog.

[Don] Is that to scale??!

[Don] wow

[Ivellian] An elf is in consultation with Asratia (yes) and looks up as you enter.

[Ivellian] It is Aramil Xiloscent.

[Master] whoops

[Master] ok

[Angie/James] Who we've met before.

[Master] It is Aramil Xiloscent

[Master] He looks up and sees Ivellian and waves, then sees Lia and freezes.

[Brian] we have? (refresh memory?)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (He was the xenophobic one, right?)

[Master] (Yep.)

[Master] The dragon is enormous, colossal.

[Angie/James] yup, but he got more respectful after we came out of the dungeon

[Master] Forty feet long, at least.

[Velkyna (Joe)] "My god, it's full of stars."

[Master] And a magnificent creature, seemingly crafted out of a single piece of silver.

[Master] Though you know it is an illusion, you are dumbstruck by her beauty and power.

[Angie/James] Praxis flies up and says "hiya"

[Aedean (Sedlack)] No, Vel, we can't sell the dragon

[Dralafi (Jared)] kneels and bows in respect

[Master] Asratia playfully snaps and takes Praxis bodily into her mouth, then grins a dragon grin and releases him.

[Velkyna (Joe)] "Shock and awe."

[Ivellian] Asrtia, I present to you:

[Ivellian] Lia Soliusvaar

[Ivellian] Defthon Tsohanoaivaar

[Dralafi (Jared)] joe: careful, or sony will sue for trademark infringement

[Angie/James] Lia steps forward and bows.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Heh.

[Ivellian] Aedean, devoted of Olidimarra

[Don] I bow

[Don] (ugh net lag)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'll bow, as well

[Ivellian] Arkady, whose name is already legend

[Brian] i do whatever sort of bow/etc monks would do

[Angie/James] Arkady blushes, then bows

[Ivellian] Aric, whom you already know.

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Angie/James] Oh really?

[Ivellian] Dralafi of the Bow

[Brian] !!!

[Ivellian] Shottamip Paunen, Child of your kind.

[Brian] i think i'd remember having met a dragon before.

[Dralafi (Jared)] lifts his head slightly at his name, then returns to his humble pose

[Shottamip (Tamora)] nods respectfully.

[Ivellian] And Velkyna Dragonslayer, who I am assured has discretion in these matters.


[Ivellian] Finally, Roger Leafbower.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna bows nervously, her eyes fixed on the floor.

[Roger (Jeff)] waves cheerfully

[Brian] ooc: LEAFBLOWER

[Asratia] You are all welcome here,

[Master] says Asratia.

[Master] She shifts her weight and you cannot help but notice that she is very much gravid.

[Brian] Excuse me, Ivellian, Asratia, but you say we've already met?

[Asratia] Not precisely, Aric.

[Asratia] But I do know of you, through my daughter.

[Asratia] All shall be explained in time.

[Master] There is a short pause.

[Master] as Asratia seems to take you all in.

[Master] You notice that the walls of the cra'hedth are partially transparent, to let the cloudy light in,

[Master] and the fountain makes a pleasing ringing noise; parts of it must be metal as well as stone.

[Master] Asratia turns to Aramil. "You must collect your strength," she says.

[Master] "Go and rest."

[Master] Aramil nods and walks toward the door.

[Master] He casts Lia a lingering look, then nods to each member of the Paryt.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Take care, Aramil.

[Angie/James] Lia nods back at him.

[Master] "Forgive my rudeness, but I am truly tired and must rest. Be welcome here."

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel's eyes are still glued to the floor.

[Master] He leaves.

[Asratia] Ivellian, would you come forward? I must speak with you a moment before I am prepared to give counsel.

[Ivellian] Of course, my lady.

[Ivellian] Then, suddenly, the light changes.

[Dralafi (Jared)] oh, Im guessing thats not good.

[Velkyna (Joe)] NOT GOOD AT ALL.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Haha, Ivellian, we're ditching you!

[Master] The cra'hedth is suddenly quite dark, as the walls have become opaque.

[Don] ...not entirely clear on what just happened...

[Master] Asratia lies on her said, her head in the fountain.

[Angie/James] Arkady: whoa.

[Master] She breathes laborously and sips from the blessed water.

[Don] whoa

[Velkyna (Joe)] Wait, wait, whoa.

[Asratia] What do you here . . .?

[Jared] whoa.

[Master] There are sounds of fighting from outside.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Does she appeared to be injured or what?

[Master] (There was no transition. She just moved. The walls just changed. Ivellian just disappeared.)

[Angie/James] Lia steps foward, and says "we were called to server you..."

[Angie/James] serve, not sever.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] "Time slip, perhaps."

[Asratia] What happens outside?

[Dralafi (Jared)] moves to the door and looks outsdide

[Don] Asratia, do you recognise us? If not, it would be a backwards time slip.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel will turn invisible and peek outside.

[Don] Don't know what's going on outside...

[Master] Which happens first?

[Velkyna (Joe)] DEX CHECK.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] We hear fighting. Weapons out, everyone.

[Roger (Jeff)] cracks his knuckles

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Asratia, are you alright?

[Master] She doesn't appear to hear.

[Master] Spot check, Aedean.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Still pregnant?

[Master] Spot for Shottamip, too.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Spot: (d20+13) [10+13] 23

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Spot: (d20+8) [6+8] 14

[Master] She's even more pregnant than she was when you met her.

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Shottamip (Tamora)] She must be close to giving birth. We should protect her, whatever is going on.

[Master] Initiative, please.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Initiative: (d20-1) [12-1] 11

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Initiative: (d20+3) [16+3] 19

[Roger (Jeff)] Roger: Initiative: (d20+4) [15+4] 19

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: Initiative: (d20+2) [13+2] 15

[Velkyna (Joe)] I lost my dice options again.

[Dralafi (Jared)] Dralafi: Initiative: (d20+6) [14+6] 20

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Initiative: (d20+3) [7+3] 10

[Master] ???: Initiative: 11

[Angie/James] Arkady: Initiative: (d20+3) [8+3] 11

[Dralafi (Jared)] finally, a vguely reasonable roll

[Master] Joe, try it now.

[Angie/James] Lia: Initiative: (d20+6) [15+6] 21

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Initiative: (d20+7) [19+7] 26

[Velkyna (Joe)] There we go.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Thanks.

[Master] Thanks.

[Master] Vel?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Drawing Xbow and peeking outside

[Aric (Brian)] kama at the ready

[Master] There is a pitched battle of some sort taking place between the elves and some force you can't see.

[Master] It's blocked off.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Because of cloud cover?

[Master] Yeah, the visibility sucks, among other things.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel will shout that there manta ship thing is under attack.

[Master] An enormous figure breaks free of the fighting and pounds toward you.

[Master] All you can see is that it is humanoid.

[Velkyna (Joe)] And, um, WE'RE under attack.

[Master] And wielding a greataxe

[Velkyna (Joe)] How close?

[Master] 20 feet. He'll be here next round.

[Master] Lia.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Wait, do I have a partial remaining?

[Master] Sure.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I assume an attack would be a sneak attack.

[Angie/James] Activate haste

[Velkyna (Joe)] Since I'm invisible?

[Master] Sure, 50% obscured tho.

[Master] If he's vulnerable to such things.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Hm.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Vel has Blind-fight which will help

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'll hold until he's closer to get a good bead.

[Master] ok

[Angie/James] Move toward door, draw sword and hold action

[Master] ok

[Master] Start counting those Haste rounds.

[Angie/James] ok

[Dralafi (Jared)] Can I see anything from where I'm at?

[Master] You heard Vel's running commentary.

[Angie/James] Should we try to get Asratia out of here somehow?

[Dralafi (Jared)] I back off the door a bit and ready a hot for the first non-elf to go through it.

[Velkyna (Joe)] How?

[Velkyna (Joe)] She's huge, and pregnant.

[Angie/James] well, she's too big to teleport...

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Much.

[Angie/James] Arkady could cast gaseous form on her

[Roger (Jeff)] I can cast imp invis on her

[Defthon (Don)] Uh, good luck.

[Master] SR 32

[Angie/James] invisibility would be good.

[Angie/James] she can turn off SR anytime she wants

[Shottamip (Tamora)] She could agree, if she weren't out of it. But she is.

[Master] She'd have to be willing, and therefore cognizant.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I think our only choice would be to hold down the fort and keep anything from getting to her.

[Velkyna (Joe)] The temple walls should hold. We just have to guard the doords.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Doors

[Aedean (Sedlack)] "doods"

[Velkyna (Joe)] "D00Dz"

[Angie/James] can we block the doors with the imovable rods?

[Master] Dral...?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yes.

[Dralafi (Jared)] yes?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] They could certainly trip people up.

[Angie/James] block three of them at least.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Do the doors open in or out?

[Defthon (Don)] dral, it's your initiative.

[Dralafi (Jared)] dude, I said what I was doing, like, 30 lines ago. scroll back ;)

[Velkyna (Joe)] Mike, do the doors open inwards or out?

[Master] In.

[Master] Sorry.

[Master] Roger.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Okay, then instead of holding her action, Vel will Immovable Rod the two doors that are right there next to her.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Who has the rods?

[Velkyna (Joe)] She'll try a third if she's got time next round.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Ah.

[Roger (Jeff)] I ready a tanglefoot bag for a non-elf

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Smart woman.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Sound okay, Mike?

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] Cool.

[Master] Ok jas

[Velkyna (Joe)] So the two left-hand doors are barred, and Vel will mention this to the party.

[Master] There are 2 doors only, map program was weird

[Master] So you can bar both doors near the middle if you'd like.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Oh. Then she'll bar the one door, the left door.

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] Or both ... ?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] So, two big doors, like barn doors?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Do we want to bar both?

[Master] Sure, strategic placement.

[Master] Yes, 2 big doors.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Put two rods on one, one on the other.

[Dralafi (Jared)] uh, if we bar ourselves in, arent the elves gonna get slaughtered outside?

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's what I was wondering.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel puts both bars on the left-hand door.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] We can leave one open to sally forth, I guess.

[Master] Shottamip

[Velkyna (Joe)] The right hand door can be used for attack and defense.

[Master] You're up.

[Angie/James] maybe just bar one door, and fight the ones coming in on the right

[Defthon (Don)] Still a good idea to bar some of the doors

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Haste: gives the target an extra partial action and a +4 haste bonus to AC for the next 11 rounds

[Master] ok

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Hold a partial, waiting for a non-elf to appear in my line of sight.

[Master] ok

[Master] Defthon

[Defthon (Don)] I draw both swords..

[Defthon (Don)] jas

[Master] ok

[Master] Arkady

[Jared] I have the feeling shottamip is gonna feel the burn when they nerf haste in a month or two

[Angie/James] inspire courage

[Master] We'll see.

[Velkyna (Joe)] NERF NERF NERF

[Master] ok, what's the result on that?

[Angie/James] +1 to hit and damage...

[Master] ok

[Angie/James] +2 to saves vs. fear effects and such

[Master] Ok set up.

[Angie/James] takes effect the start of my turn next round

[Angie/James] you have to listen for a full round.

[Master] Right.

[Master] Aedean

[Velkyna (Joe)] I would think we've heard his mad rhymez before, we get the bonus earlier.

[Master] heh

[Velkyna (Joe)] Y'know, we know how the song ends.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'm going to attempt to assess Asratia's condition

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Heal: (d20+10) [13+10] 23

[Master] Asratia is extremely pregnant. Strangely and unhealthily so.

[Master] Something to worry more about later.

[Master] Aric

[Aric (Brian)] can i see the big axe wielder through the door?

[Master] The door is open?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Was Dral peeking out?

[Master] I thought Vel closed it after looking.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel closed her door.

[Master] Nah, he stepped back after the play-by-play.

[Velkyna (Joe)] The left one.

[Master] So, there is nothing currently open, sorry.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Then both doors are shut. The left one is barred.

[Aric (Brian)] i thought it was. seems sort of silly to lock us in.

[Velkyna (Joe)] The right door isn't open, and isn't barred.

[Master] ding

[Aric (Brian)] i'll hold my action then

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] I.e. you could open the right door if you wanted.

[Master] Vel, you're up again.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel will open the right door and shoot at axepud if he's still there.

[Angie/James] I don't think that's a good idea.

[Master] Axepud was coming at a 45 degree angle from the left (angle of the door being cracked open more or less requires this).

[Master] She'd have to peek her head out.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Okay, then she'll hold her action again.

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's too precarious.

[Velkyna (Joe)] She will take a MEA to maneuver.

[Master] Maybe a little step backward, or up a wall?

[Master] Sure.

[Aric (Brian)] this is certainly an exciting combat

[Master] The Temple is about 15 feet tall at that point.

[Master] Lia

[Master] Just for you, Aric, next time you don't get a round to prepare. ;)

[Velkyna (Joe)] HEY

[Aric (Brian)] doh!

[Angie/James] Lia askes do we want to get some of out side to defend the doors?

[Aric (Brian)] actually that's totally in character for aric. since he doesn't have any spells he can cast or anything he'd get impatient.

[Master] Valid, but it's only been six seconds. GIve the guy a little credit.

[Master] Defthon, Dralafi, Vel, Aedean, you all think tactically.

[Master] What do you think?

[Velkyna (Joe)] I think inside's a better defense than outside.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Here we've got a choke point.

[Jared] I agree, although if we dont see someone soon I'' be worried their target is something else.

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] True.

[Master] What does Lia do?

[Defthon (Don)] True, but not all of us will be able to fight---quarters are too close.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Really only three of us need a front line.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Everyone else is missile/spelling it.

[Angie/James] Lia hol\ds action

[Master] ok

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Hovering, by the way, for sight lines.

[Master] Dral

[Master] (wait for it . . . wait for it . . .)

[Jared] continue waiting for the nonce.

[Velkyna (Joe)] STAY ON TARGET

[Master] (LUTHIAK)

[Angie/James] Aric might want to back up a smidge, doesn't want to be hit by the door.

[Master] Roger

[Roger (Jeff)] Cast blur on myself

[Master] What's that give you?

[Defthon (Don)] psst... take a step backwards

[Velkyna (Joe)] better AC

[Angie/James] Doesn't Roger wan tto slep back a little?

[Roger (Jeff)] I forget how much exactly...hang on

[Master] ok

[Master] Shottamip?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Stalk: makes the target invisible for the next 11 minutes

[Shottamip (Tamora)] and hold again

[Master] ok

[Master] Defthon

[Roger (Jeff)] Oh, it gives me one-half cover

[Jared] blur gives one-half concealment

[Master] ok kewl

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ah.

[Master] I made Roger partially opaque and gave him a 5' step.

[Master] Defthon, what're you thinking?

[Roger (Jeff)] all good

[Defthon (Don)] I try to maneuver to get front line on the unbarred doors and hold the rest

[Master] ok

[Master] That'll do for now.

[Master] Arkady's Courage kicks in.

[Master] (already handled.)

[Master] Arkady?

[Velkyna (Joe)] WOO WOO

[Velkyna (Joe)] JUKE

[Velkyna (Joe)] BOX

[Velkyna (Joe)] HERO

[Angie/James] cast greater magic weapon on my rapier


[Master] ok

[Master] Do you move at all?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Is Arkady's bonus a morale bonus?

[Angie/James] or last speedbump Arkady

[Master] I think so.

[Master] It may not stack with Bless.

[Angie/James] yes, morale

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Indeed, it does not stack with Bless

[Master] Arkady, you ready?

[Angie/James] Praxis, try to talk to Asratia, see how she's doing.

[Praxis] Sure thing.

[Angie/James] Arkady is ready. What ever that means.

[Aric (Brian)] It's name is Feng! I used my, um, Monk Mind Reading!

[Velkyna (Joe)] Holy crap, isn't that the half-orc fucker that belonged to Tristan?

[Angie/James] yup

[Velkyna (Joe)] HOO BOY

[Velkyna (Joe)] PAYBACK TIME.

[Angie/James] for him or for us?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Oh, you better believe for us, bucko.

[Master] Feng: STR check: ** MODIFIED BY: STR: (+4) ** 31

[Angie/James] That's a damn fine STR check

[Shottamip (Tamora)] murmurs soothing things in Draconic while she waits. "It's all right, lady, you're going to be fine."

[Jared] um. buh.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Indeed.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] He rolled a 27?

[Master] There is a horrifying wet thud and crunch as something slams into the door. The door splinters and the BARS ARE PUSHED BACK....

[Velkyna (Joe)] Y'know, since you only get to roll d20.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Obviously, he has other bonuses.

[Master] He rolled an 18.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Not to a STR check.

[Master] His STR bonus is 9

[Master] He gets a +4 from other modifiers.

[Angie/James] This is going to be a problem.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Fuck'd upp.


[Velkyna (Joe)] See, aren't we glad to be IN HERE.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] wishes Asratia would recover Right Now.

[Velkyna (Joe)] What the hell are those?

[Master] The little immovable rods

[Master] Put your mouse over 'em.

[Master] The door is moving similarly.

[Master] splintering.

[Velkyna (Joe)] So is that where the door is now?

[Master] more or less.

[Master] Sorry, not the best artist, can't do all this dynamic stuff easy.

[Velkyna (Joe)] S'fine.

[Master] ok

[Jared] um, Im gonna have a tricky tiume shooting through y'all.

[Master] Through the splintered door, you can see the face of the half-orc Feng.

[Velkyna (Joe)] CAN I SHOOT HIM?

[Master] But his arms and torso are a goopy mass of living clay.

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Master] An expression of mindless violence is the only emotion he shows.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] This gets worse all the time.

[Angie/James] !!!

[Master] Shoot him Vel.

[Velkyna (Joe)] SHOOT HIM

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Attack 1: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (+1) ** Light Crossbow +1 [b] hits AC: ((d20+16+1)) [(9+16+1)] 26

[Jared] so much for that sneak attack.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Becoming a lich wasn't enough, I guess, he had to modify his servants, too.

[Master] Roll damage.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Sneak attack?

[Master] Wait, what arrows are you using?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Sigh. Normal bolts.

[Master] bolts, rather?

[Master] The bolt just sinks into the clay without visible damage.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Fuckity fuck.

[Master] You can now see that the clay burbles out of the creatures head and cascades down . . . horrifying . . .

[Master] The door is coming apart. Those with held actions have a target.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm now visible.

[Angie/James] When hasted, can you hold a full action, instead of a partial action?

[Jared] I suppose I take my shot, which is about to be wasted.

[Master] No.

[Tamora] Shottamip targets Feng. Distance: 18'11"

[Angie/James] Lia targets Feng. Distance: 9'11"

[Jared] Dralafi targets Feng. Distance: 19'09"

[Angie/James] Lia no longer targets Feng.

[Angie/James] Lia targets Feng. Distance: 9'11"

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Subdue: freezes the target creature in place for 11 rounds

[Angie/James] Arkady targets Feng. Distance: 12'04"

[Master] Nothing happens.

[Jared] Dralafi: Attack: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (+1) ** +2 Longbow (30') [B] hits AC: ((d20+18+1)) [(20+18+1)] 39 [POSSIBLE CRITICAL HIT (x3)] Rolling again...

[Jared] Dralafi: Attack: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (+1) ** +2 Longbow (30') [B] hits AC: ((d20+18+1)) [(13+18+1)] 32

[Jared] Dralafi's attack of 32 (probably) hits Feng [PROBABLY A CRITICAL HIT]

[Master] Damn..

[Velkyna (Joe)] NICE.

[Master] Nice fucking roll.

[Master] No damage.

[Jared] I try :)

[Aric (Brian)] i'll wait until they get their shots off, and assuming i can reach something of feng, i'll run over and slice at him with kamas

[Defthon (Don)] Can I still move and get one attack in? Importantly: can I get past Lia?

[Angie/James] are you using the +3 arrows I gave you?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I bet we can't crit him anyway

[Velkyna (Joe)] Didn't Dral get some of Arkady's GMW arrows?

[Master] Yes.

[Master] That's with the +3 arrows.

[Jared] no one gave me any +3 arrows :)

[Master] Oh.

[Master] Well, enjoy the information.

[Master] Knowledge: Arcana, Bardic Lore, etc.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm guessing he's immune to piercing attacks.

[Velkyna (Joe)] 'Cause of the clay.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Knowledge (arcana): (d20+6) [12+6] 18

[Angie/James] Arkady: bardic knowledge: (d20+11) [12+11] 23

[Velkyna (Joe)] Claymation, whatever.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Knowledge (arcana): (d20+6) [2+6] 8

[Master] Clay golems you know have certain immunities,

[Aric (Brian)] well that's unpleasant

[Master] but you can't remember which ones.

[Velkyna (Joe)] He's been golemized?

[Master] And you have no idea how half-golem-things work into this.

[Master] Aedean.

[Aric (Brian)] brb

[Angie/James] Is that like being simonized?

[Master] ok

[Defthon (Don)] Lia: have you gone yet?

[Brian] I am away from the keyboard.

[Master] More like Vulcanized.

[Angie/James] Lia has not gone yet.

[Master] Lia held her action.

[Defthon (Don)] well that was good and bad.

[Angie/James] Lia engages, takes a swing with her sword

[Master] You wanna try to hit the Golem.

[Master] ok

[Master] It's partially concealed by the door.

[Angie/James] Lia: Attack 1: Great Sword [t] hits AC: ((d20+13)) [(3+13)] 16

[Angie/James] Lia's attack of 16 misses Feng

[Master] That's a miss, second attack.

[Angie/James] partial action, right?

[Master] Oops, right.

[Master] ok

[Angie/James] no second attack.

[Master] Aedean, you're up.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] jas

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm pretty sure clay golems are immune to piercing attacks, now that I think of it.

[Velkyna (Joe)] And like half damage from slashing attacks.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Only bashing attacks do full damage.

[Master] Someone cast GMW on Aric's fists.

[Velkyna (Joe)] YES

[Angie/James] yeah, right

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Alright. I'm going to cast Divine Power on myself. I'll handle my mods, Mike.

[Aric (Brian)] so i should drop my kama?

[Brian] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] Thanks.

[Jared] cant gmw natural weapons.

[Master] Aric -- he wouldn't know to do so unless it didn't work at least once.

[Master] Sukk.

[Angie/James] sorry Aric

[Defthon (Don)] Mike: I'll take my move, I open the third door and flank the golem. Do I still have an attack with all that, or do I wait until next round?

[Aric (Brian)] what about my ward cestus?

[Master] Even Monk fists.

[Jared] and Im pretty sure clay golems are immune to slashing and piercing.

[Master] Don, I'm afraid that that's an awful idea.

[Defthon (Don)] Probably.

[Master] What's the ward cestus do?

[Jared] CESTUS PAX is here? sweet.

[Master] heh

[Velkyna (Joe)] OLE OLE OLE OLE

[Aric (Brian)] it's just a thing that goes over my knuckles, attacks are just like an unarmed strike, but, if i take a pure defense action, it's +1 AC

[Master] Okay, opening the door would be a partial action.

[Master] Yes, you could MW the Ward CEstus, it's a weapon.

[Defthon (Don)] brb

[Master] ok

[Aric (Brian)] there's a note on it in my char sheet

[Master] Brass knuckles, if you will.

[Aric (Brian)] essentially

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Attack 1: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (+4) ** Mace of Disruption +1 [1] hits AC: ((d20+8+4)) [(8+8+4)] 20

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'm just testing the mods...

[Aric (Brian)] useless most of the time (when do i ever not attack? :) ) but good for flavor

[Master] ok

[Master] Don...?

[Defthon (Don)] sorry about that

[Master] ok kewl

[Master] so it'd be a move -equivalent action to get to the door and a partial action to open it.

[Aric (Brian)] i held my action too, btw

[Master] You would not be able to attack.

[Defthon (Don)] right. Assuming that there isn't a horde the other side of the door, though, I'd still step through and be ready to full attack next round.

[Master] okey-dokey.

[Master] The door is open and Defthon steps out.

[Master] Spot check.

[Angie/James] Brian, do you really want your brass knuckels GMW'ed?

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: Spot: (d20+6) [15+6] 21

[Master] Feng is more or less by himself; the rest of the fighting seems to be contained.

[Aric (Brian)] well, if it'd help do more damage to take this bad boy down...

[Master] Aric.

[Master] You're up.

[Master] You'll want to try the Kama attack, because there's no way Aric would possibly know better.

[Aric (Brian)] how about i swing at him to figure out that my kama is not as useful

[Master] Kewl

[Aric (Brian)] can i take both attacks or just one?

[Master] Too far away for Full Attack, sorry.

[Master] Just one, not that it's important.

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Attack 1: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (+1) ** Kama (Masterwork, Enhanced) hits AC: ((d20+11+1)) [(3+11+1)] 15

[Angie/James] that's not going to work...

[Aric (Brian)] wow i suck

[Master] He missed, sorry.

[Master] Aric missed, rather.

[Master] Vel?

[Sedlack] Aedean's hit points adjusted by 9 to 68.

[Master] kewl

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Okay, I'll just keep track of that separately

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel's going to drop her xbow (free)

[Master] Apparently, we all needed to stuff a Light Mace +1 onto our Xmas lists.

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] draw her sword (MEA)

[Master] ok

[Master] Nice scabbard.

[Velkyna (Joe)] 5-step (free)

[Master] sure.

[Velkyna (Joe)] (THANKS)

[Velkyna (Joe)] And then attack once.

[Joe] Velkyna targets Feng. Distance: 5'05"

[Master] excellent.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I lost my dice options again.

[Master] jas

[Velkyna (Joe)] What's up with that?

[Master] No idea.

[Master] SHould be back.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: Attack 1: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (+1) ** Short Sword +2, Defender [r] hits AC: ((d20+17+1)) [(1+17+1)] 19 [CRITICAL MISS]

[Velkyna (Joe)] FUCKITY FUCK

[Master] The sword is absorbed into the goopy mess which is Feng's shoudler.

[Defthon (Don)] D'OH

[Velkyna (Joe)] Which means what?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Gone?

[Master] Vel no longer has it.

[Angie/James] it wouldn't have done damage anyway.

[Velkyna (Joe)] FUCKITY FUCK

[Master] Lia

[Angie/James] full attack

[Master] excellent

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (Make some room for the guy with the mace)

[Angie/James] Lia: Attack 1: Great Sword [t] hits AC: ((d20+13)) [(6+13)] 19

[Angie/James] Lia's attack of 19 misses Feng

[Master] Vel's on the ceiling.

[Angie/James] Lia: Attack 2: Great Sword [t] hits AC: ((d20+8)) [(1+8)] 9 [CRITICAL MISS]

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Very good, then

[Master] That's a miss. second attack.

[Angie/James] Lia: Attack 1: Great Sword [t] hits AC: ((d20+13)) [(5+13)] 18

[Angie/James] Lia's attack of 18 misses Feng


[Master] Claidan Solius complains, "Do you find me offensive? You seek to drop me so often."

[Master] Lia doesn't hit, but doesn't lose hold of the sword.

[Aric (Brian)] please don't let Claidan Soilus be lost to a golem's shoulder

[Master] Dral

[Jared] Dral sits there going 'Fuck' as he realizes there isnt much he can do

[Velkyna (Joe)] This is ineptitude on a tragicomically cosmic level.

[Jared] can I beat it with a crowbar?

[Angie/James] that is a blunt weapon

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Mmm...Improvised Weapon

[Master] yes

[Jared] mostly, is it good enough to prevent me from taking an AoO for swinging at it? :)

[Master] yes

[Velkyna (Joe)] What about the bastard sword +2?

[Jared] I thought we had decided swords no work?

[Master] indeed

[Master] nope

[Jared] oh, my badd.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Not confirmed.

[Master] no one hit it yet

[Velkyna (Joe)] My hunch is hafl damage.

[Jared] I drop the bow, draw bastard sword+2

[Defthon (Don)] He's a tad distant---he'd have to go outside with me first

[Jared] yeah, Ill get there.

[Jared] I forget, can I trade an attack to move more?

[Master] yes

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yes.

[Master] That will provoke an AoO.

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's 30 right there, you're golden.

[Defthon (Don)] He's a tad distant---he'd have to go outside with me first

[Defthon (Don)] He's a tad distant---he'd have to go outside with me first

[Master] You're moving into and out of and into his threat radius

[Defthon (Don)] I hate this thing.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Nice lag, Don.

[Master] you okay wiht that

[Velkyna (Joe)] TUMBLE

[Jared] hmmm.

[Master] TUMBLE

[Velkyna (Joe)] TUMBLE

[Jared] I tumble :)

[Master] o

[Master] k

[Defthon (Don)] Anyway. Move to just >5ft away, then step in next round.

[Jared] Dralafi: Tumble: (d20+13) [16+13] 29

[Aric (Brian)] yay!

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's my boy.

[Master] You avoid provoking an AoO

[Defthon (Don)] or that.

[Master] Roger

[Velkyna (Joe)] He should be able to attack.

[Velkyna (Joe)] He just moved 30

[Jared] Ive got mobility, so Im hardish to hit even if I did.

[Aric (Brian)] we are the tumbling party

[Master] Readied a weapn

[Velkyna (Joe)] Partial action.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ah, m'badd.

[Master] roger...

[Roger (Jeff)] magic missile

[Angie/James] we are the fumbling party as well.

[Master] okey-dokey

[Master] roll it up

[Roger (Jeff)] Roll: ((4d4+(1*4))) [((1+4+4+2)+(1*4))] 15

[Master] NOTHING

[Master] HAPPENS

[Master] Shottamip

[Defthon (Don)] What did Roger hit with?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Clay golems are immune to all sorts of shit.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We need stuff like Rock to Mud or Move Earth.

[Angie/James] will slow work?

[Jared] almost nothing works :)

[Tamora] Shottamip no longer targets Feng.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Grease: gestures, and the target object or area is covered in slippery grease for 11 rounds

[Master] Feng: Reflex: 10

[Master] Feng drops his greataxe.

[Angie/James] Yay!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Nice

[Defthon (Don)] Helpful.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Attack: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (+1) ** Ranged Touch Attack [R] hits AC: ((d20+8+1)) [(15+8+1)] 24

[Aedean (Sedlack)] ?

[Master] That's a hit.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Enervation: attacks her target with a black bolt of negative energy for (1d4) [1] 1 negative levels

[Master] Nothing happens.

[Master] Defthon

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Oh well.

[Defthon (Don)] Whack 'im with my sword.

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: First tsohanoai attack (1d20+13) [3+13] 16 does (1d10+7) [8+7] 15 damage

[Defthon (Don)] Feh.

[Master] Nope, that's a miss.

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: Secont tsohanoai attack (1d20+8) [17+8] 25 does (1d10+7) [9+7] 16 damage

[Master] That's a hit.

[Defthon (Don)] Yee-ah.

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: Shortsword attack (1d20+10) [3+10] 13 does (1d6+4) [1+4] 5 damage

[Master] Feng: Fortitude: ** MODIFIED BY: CON (+4) ** 27

[Master] Shortsword misses.

[Master] Tsohanoai DOES NO DAMAGE

[Defthon (Don)] Feh. I drop the shortsword (free, yes?) so I can just use Tso next round.

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] Okay, they're immune to sharp weaons all around.

[Master] Arkady


[Velkyna (Joe)] They're probably immune to non-magical blunt weapons as well.

[Angie/James] cast flare, I have nothing else

[Angie/James] fort save, or else -1 to hit

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Hey, try hitting purposely with the flat of your blades, front line people.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Try hitting with the flat of the sword?

[Angie/James] I don't have it set up as a spell.

[Master] Feng: Will: 13

[Jared] I dont think subdual is gonna work....

[Angie/James] DC 14 for that fort save, by the way

[Master] Feng is SLOWED . . .

[Angie/James] how did he get slowed?

[Angie/James] Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

[Aric (Brian)] ok, someone should get the bright idea to GMW my brass knuckles :)

[Master] He missed a saving throw for one of Tsohanoai's effects.

[Master] I rolled the wrong throw.

[Angie/James] Ah.

[Angie/James] Does Aric have his brass knuckles out?

[Aric (Brian)] they're pretty much always on

[Velkyna (Joe)] GO ARIC GO ARIC

[Aric (Brian)] it's just a weighed leather gauntlet strap

[Angie/James] How can you fight with a kama then?

[Master] I was about to say . . .

[Angie/James] I'd think it would interfere with your grip or something.

[Aric (Brian)] i only have one, so i put it on my other hand? :)

[Master] heh

[Jared] A cestus is basically a leather glove, anyway...

[Aric (Brian)] "i gots my bashin' hand and my slicin' hand"

[Master] Sure, but there's this whole "unfettered monk" thing

[Master] I don't think anyone's going to think of it just yet.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Who's up?

[Master] Arkady?


[Velkyna (Joe)] FINISH HIM

[Angie/James] I cast flare, -1 to hit if he fails the fort save

[Angie/James] DC 14

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] What about GMW???

[Angie/James] We're only just figuring out that swords don't work, right?

[Master] Yeah, James is so right.

[Velkyna (Joe)] COME ON!

[Velkyna (Joe)] :)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I, for one, didn't know Aric had brass knuckles

[Master] Indeed.

[Master] Arkady, cast your spell.

[Master] oh, sorry.

[Angie/James] I don't have it set up.

[Master] Feng: Fortitude: ** MODIFIED BY: CON (+4) ** 20

[Master] oh ok

[Angie/James] feh.

[Master] Makes the save!

[Master] Feng pulls the short sword from his shoulder and tries to sever the immovable rod.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Feng can only take a partial action

[Velkyna (Joe)] Right.

[Master] Heh

[Master] Point.

[Aric (Brian)] hey mike, is his last name Shui?

[Master] Feng readies his new Short Sword of Defending

[Angie/James] Can Lia try to hit it with the flat of her blade?

[Defthon (Don)] D'OH

[Master] Aedean?

[Sedlack] Aedean targets Feng. Distance: 5'08"

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna is SO getting out of Aedean's way.

[Angie/James] Arkady has a bunch of oil, do we want to set it on fire?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Attack 1: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (+7) ** Mace of Disruption +1 [1] hits AC: ((d20+8+7)) [(1+8+7)] 16 [CRITICAL MISS]

[Velkyna (Joe)] FUCKITY FUCK

[Master] YOu don't drop the weapon

[Master] Do you have a second attack?

[Dralafi (Jared)] THE FUMBLES

[Defthon (Don)] Good jesus fuck.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Fuck that. I mulligan

[Master] YESH

[Velkyna (Joe)] NICE

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Attack 1: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (+7) ** Mace of Disruption +1 [1] hits AC: ((d20+8+7)) [(11+8+7)] 26

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean's attack of 26 (probably) hits Feng



[Dralafi (Jared)] LOL

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Damage 1: ** MODIFIED BY: DAMAGE (+4) ** Mace of Disruption +1 [1] does ((1d8+2+4)) [(6+2+4)] 12 points of damage.

[Defthon (Don)] Dude, did he just special ability a reroll? Rokk.

[Roger (Jeff)] FNORD

[Master] Feng is injured by the Mace of Disruption and looks genuinely startled.

[Master] Aric

[Velkyna (Joe)] FLAT OF THE BLADE

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I love my luck domain

[Velkyna (Joe)] Does Aedean get a second attack?

[Master] Nah, he mved.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I moved.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Gotcha

[Master] Aric?

[Angie/James] Doesn't the grease still affect Feng?

[Aric (Brian)] sorry

[Aric (Brian)] it had paused again :(

[Angie/James] He has to save, to keep from dropping the short sword.

[Master] Just his greataxe.

[Master] squirty squirty

[Aric (Brian)] ok, i'm going to drop the kama since bladed weapons dn't seem to work and strike him unarmed

[Angie/James] Oh, did she grease him, or his axe?

[Master] Excellent idea.

[Master] he's immune, his axe isn't.

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Attack 1: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (+1) ** Unarmed hits AC: ((d20+10+1)) [(6+10+1)] 17

[Master] STRIKE

[Shottamip (Tamora)] The axe. Since he is resisting everything I aim at him.

[Master] MISS

[Master] Second attack

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Attack 2: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (+1) ** Unarmed hits AC: ((d20+7+1)) [(11+7+1)] 19

[Master] That's a hit, with the flanking.

[Master] Roll damage.

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Damage 2: ** MODIFIED BY: DAMAGE (+1) ** Unarmed does ((1d10+4+1)) [(10+4+1)] 15 points of damage.

[Master] DR cuts taht

[Velkyna (Joe)] OLE OLE OLE OLE

[Master] Some amount.

[Master] You hit him and you hurt him, but he's resistant to your nonmagical attack.

[Angie/James] you were saying Joe?

[Master] Vek

[Master] Vel, rather

[Velkyna (Joe)] FLAT OF THE BLADE

[Master] Vel has a sword?

[Velkyna (Joe)] No.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Well, she does.

[Velkyna (Joe)] But non-magical.

[Master] right

[Velkyna (Joe)] She's got a shitload of nonmagical weapons.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Like a mace.

[Master] See, there you go.

[Velkyna (Joe)] free action, vel's taking out a Heavy mace.

[Velkyna (Joe)] from the haversack.

[Velkyna (Joe)] (thus, free action)

[Velkyna (Joe)] Then, attack twice.

[Master] heh

[Master] kick it

[Aric (Brian)] would it occur to aric to try with the cestus after that last attack?

[Master] Brian: Not sure.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I dont' have a base attack roll, so I've got to go to the die roller.

[Master] Gimme an INT or WIS check

[Master] ok

[Aric (Brian)] i wondered if it "felt funny" when i hit or anything

[Master] It did, but you did damage.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Roll: ((1d20+8)) [(11+8)] 19

[Master] So Aric might decide to just kind of soldier on.

[Master] el is flanking, that's a hit.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] +8?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Roll: (1d8) [6] 6

[Master] Vel is 11th level.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Base attack is +8 for an 11th level rogue.

[Master] Okay, his DR absorbs the damage.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Duh

[Velkyna (Joe)] Fucking fuck.

[Master] Lia

[Master] (I assume no reason to bother with the 2nd attack.)

[Angie/James] can Lia try hitting it wht the flat of the blade?

[Velkyna (Joe)] (sure)

[Master] That'd be subdual damage.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel will move backwards to get out of the way.

[Velkyna (Joe)] She's uiseless at this point.

[Master] ok

[Angie/James] Is there a penalty for the AR for that?

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: WIS check: (d20+1) [5+1] 6

[Master] yes, -4

[Master] Aric's gonna keep hitting it until it falls down.

[Angie/James] Lia: Attack 1: Great Sword [t] hits AC: ((d20+13)) [(1+13)] 14 [CRITICAL MISS]

[Master] Okay, that's two critical misses in two rounds.

[Defthon (Don)] GOOD CHRIST WHAT

[Aric (Brian)] damn you do hate Claidan Soilus

[Master] Lia places her foot slightly wrong and it lands on the greased greataxe, which of course goes flying.

[Angie/James] Angie wants to start rolling manually.

[Master] Hee

[Defthon (Don)] rilly.

[Master] Lia falls and is now prone.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Everyone needs some Luck domain

[Master] Next round, she will have to get up.


[Master] Dral


[Dralafi (Jared)] hm.

[Dralafi (Jared)] well, since no one has succeeded with this flat of the blade stuff, full attack, flat.

[Master] ok

[Dralafi (Jared)] Dralafi: Attack: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (+1) ** +2 Bastard Sword [B] hits AC: ((d20+12+1)) [(8+12+1)] 21

[Dralafi (Jared)] Dralafi's attack of 21 (probably) hits Feng

[Master] That's a hit.

[Master] He appears to be immune to subdual damage.

[Dralafi (Jared)] Of course he is.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] A cleric's work is never done....

[Master] Second attack is equally useless.

[Dralafi (Jared)] right

[Master] Roger

[Roger (Jeff)] Poly self to medium-sized clay golem

[Velkyna (Joe)] Somebody in the front row with a decent spot and nothing better to do (SWORDS) check his ass out for an amulet or a necklace or somesuch shit that might be fueling this bastard.


[Roger (Jeff)] Why?


[Master] Not kidding.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Ow.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I.e. this guy was a half-orc. Something turned him into a half-orc/half-golem fucker. Maybe he's wearing it and we can destroy it.

[Master] Seriously. Don't cross the streams.

[Roger (Jeff)] Hm. I cast imp invis on Aedean

[Aric (Brian)] imp?

[Roger (Jeff)] after moving towards him

[Master] Is that a distance spell?

[Master] ah, kewl.

[Master] "Improved" -- lets you attack and stuff.

[Master] Good thought, Aedean you're now invisible.

[Master] Shottamip

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'll add another 2

[Angie/James] grease him again

[Tamora] Aedean targets Aedean. Distance: 0'00"

[Tamora] Aedean no longer targets Feng.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Um.

[Sedlack] Aedean targets Feng. Distance: 4'05"

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Haste: gives the target an extra partial action and a +4 haste bonus to AC for the next 11 rounds

[Master] Aedean is now hasted.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Scoralicious

[Master] ok

[Master] Defthon

[Defthon (Don)] I'll whack 'im again, two handed this time.

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'd really appreciate a grease on my short sword. If Tristan TPs him out and I lose it, I'm going to be pissed.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Just sayin'.

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: First tsohanoai attack (1d20+13) [7+13] 20 does (1d10+8) [8+8] 16 damage

[Master] That's a hit...

[Master] jas

[Master] Feng: Will: 11

[Master] ok

[Velkyna (Joe)] Suck it.

[Defthon (Don)] (that actually should've been a higher attack cuz of being two-handed---fixed for the second one:)

[Master] Feng is still slowed and takes a little damage.

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: Secont tsohanoai attack (1d20+8) [5+8] 13 does (1d10+7) [4+7] 11 damage

[Master] That's a miss.

[Master] Arkady

[Defthon (Don)] That should've been +10

[Defthon (Don)] The damn thing didn't save, sorry

[Master] Still a miss, sadly.

[Angie/James] who's got a blunt weapon that Arkady can see?

[Master] Aedean, since he's not invisible toArkady

[Velkyna (Joe)] ARIC

[Master] Aric has fists, but they don't count.

[Master] Vel has a mace out.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel is holding a mace.

[Angie/James] OK, GMW on Vel's mace.

[Aric (Brian)] if arkady said something about that, aric could say "hey, yes i do have..."

[Master] There's a long tradition of magic weaponing Aric's mace...

[Master] No time.

[Velkyna (Joe)] EAT IT VID BOI

[Master] a mace, rather.

[Aric (Brian)] was going to say

[Master] ok Vel is now weilding a +3 mace.

[Master] Feng casts Haste on himself.

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Angie/James] damn.

[Aric (Brian)] does haste cancel slow?

[Master] Yes.

[Aric (Brian)] cool, it does work like Final Fantasy then :)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] But he's just normal speed now

[Master] As a free action.

[Angie/James] !!!

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Master] He then takes a full attack option on . . . he can't see Aedean . . . Defthon!

[Master] Defthon slowed him, after all.

[Master] ok

[Master] Feng: Attack 1: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (-2) ** ** MODIFIED BY: STR (+4) ** Short Sword of Defending +2 [R] hits AC: 24

[Master] Feng: Damage 1: ** MODIFIED BY: STR (+4) ** Short Sword of Defending +2 [R] does 16 points of damage.

[Master] Feng: Attack 2: ** MODIFIED BY: ATTACK (-2) ** ** MODIFIED BY: STR (+4) ** Short Sword of Defending +2 [R] hits AC: 30

[Angie/James] that's going to leave a mark

[Master] Feng: Damage 2: ** MODIFIED BY: STR (+4) ** Short Sword of Defending +2 [R] does 17 points of damage.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Def, I'm sorry for the pain my sword is about to inflict.

[Velkyna (Joe)] But I assure you it would be worse if he was using his own axe.

[Master] Okay, both those damage rolls were actually 2 too low cuz I forgot to change his mods.

[Master] So total damage is 37

[Aric (Brian)] that's a mark

[Velkyna (Joe)] Well, shit.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Now Arkady has something to do next round

[Master] Feng turns and carves into Defthon like he's splitting straw.

[Angie/James] grease, grease, grease

[Velkyna (Joe)] GREASE

[Shottamip (Tamora)] next turn

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Then full attack

[Aric (Brian)] he's the eye of the tiger

[Master] does that provoke an AoO?

[Master] Close combat and all

[Velkyna (Joe)] He's invisible.

[Angie/James] cast defensively, yes?

[Master] ok kewl

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: (defensive casting): (d20+15) [7+15] 22

[Master] Dral

[Angie/James] OK, this is really not good.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Once, twice, three times a lady

[Velkyna (Joe)] How the hell did he do that?

[Dralafi (Jared)] YOU GUYS. SERIOUSLY

[Velkyna (Joe)] Or did it get stuck in him?


[Master] 3 rounds, 3 critical misses.

[Master] Weird shit starts happening.

[Master] Dral?

[Dralafi (Jared)] I think we're at 4, actually.

[Master] Just for her, tho.

[Aric (Brian)] SHHHHHH

[Master] 1 for Vel, 3 for Lia

[Velkyna (Joe)] Five if you count Aedean's non-miss.

[Master] heh

[Dralafi (Jared)] I look at the bad man really hard and see if he has any flashing parts that say 'hit me'.


[Master] Heh

[Master] No

[Dralafi (Jared)] oh.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Dral could take a look at the oputside...

[Aedean (Sedlack)] He might be useful there

[Defthon (Don)] hmm.

[Master] The clouds and general confusion prevent any kind of conclusion.

[Dralafi (Jared)] how much is much?

[Dralafi (Jared)] right

[Master] You do notice, however, that the air is thicker than usual...

[Master] Roger

[Dralafi (Jared)] I yell 'anyone got a mace?' at the top of my lungs

[Velkyna (Joe)] There is a storm coming. Our storm.

[Roger (Jeff)] Alchemist's fire at em

[Master] ok

[Master] Don't miss

[Aric (Brian)] And when it comes it shall shake the universe.

[Dralafi (Jared)] I dont think clay burns much...

[Roger (Jeff)] OOooh right.

[Aric (Brian)] Or alternately drop it.

[Angie/James] Does that mean we're going down? The thick air bit, I mean.

[Dralafi (Jared)] We have golem sign the likes of which God has never seen.

[Dralafi (Jared)] almost certianly

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 2 golems in as many sessions...

[Velkyna (Joe)] He should have to do that every round, right?

[Master] Nah, only the first.

[Master] If he makes it.

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's ass. It's covered in grease.

[Defthon (Don)] Whack 'im.

[Master] If he tries to pick up a pre-greased one, though, he has to save again and again

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: First tsohanoai attack (1d20+15) [4+15] 19 does (1d10+9) [7+9] 16 damage

[Velkyna (Joe)] GET DOWN GET DOWN

[Master] Feng turns to face the tiny theif whose relentless attacks proved the straw that broke his enchantment's back

[Master] A look of blank incomprehension crosses his face, and he says, "Your . . . sword?" and gestures toward her before collapsing into a puddle of goo.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel spits on him.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Just like Vel to steal the kill

[Velkyna (Joe)] "Yeah give me back my sword you ugly fuck."



[Angie/James] Arkady slaps another cure on Def

[Master] ok

[Master] THe Grease has since been shed from it.

[Defthon (Don)] *cough* that sucked. Feel better now.

[Master] There is an unholy Greataxe on the ground.

[Angie/James] OK, thought combat was over.

[Velkyna (Joe)] SELL IT

[Master] The sounds of combat from elsewhere on the Cloud Ray are dying.

[Defthon (Don)] Is combat, in fact, over, as such?

[Angie/James] We can't assume the good guys won.

[Master] Dral, you're up.

[Angie/James] Let's brace the remaining door, and prepare for attack.

[Master] I'm still going by round, but there's no immediate threat

[Joe] Velkyna no longer targets Feng.

[Jared] Dralafi no longer targets Feng.

[Sedlack] Aedean targets Asratia. Distance: 22'11"

[Defthon (Don)] ok, but we're waiting for initiatives?

[Master] Roger

[Sedlack] Aedean no longer targets Asratia.

[Defthon (Don)] that's a yes then. :)_

[Roger (Jeff)] I go outside

[Master] Shottamip

[Shottamip (Tamora)] waiting

[Master] Arkady

[Angie/James] I was curing Def

[Master] Right, and we already did that.

[Master] Aedean

[Defthon (Don)] yup

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'll cure Def, and then take a look to see what I can see...

[Master] ok

[Master] Roll it up

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Cure Serious Wounds: (DC=(10+5+3) [10+5+3] 18) (0-(3d8+9)) [0-((5+5+2)+9)] -21 HP recovered

[Master] ?

[Master] ok

[Aric (Brian)] hrm

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I have an additional partial action still....

[Velkyna (Joe)] I think he's casting invisipurge.

[Dralafi (Jared)] I forget, did I drop my bow or just shuffle it?

[Aric (Brian)] and hold action

[Master] Nothing shows up, and Aedean doesn't see much of antything.

[Master] Dral -- drop.

[Dralafi (Jared)] well, I should go get it then.

[Aric (Brian)] picking up my kama on the way

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I didn't cast invis purge, I used that slot for cure serious

[Master] Why don't we make that your action instead, then?

[Master] Oh ok!

[Master] Rght

[Master] Still, nothing nearby.

[Master] Dral goes and grabs his bow.

[Dralafi (Jared)] I shuffle things sos Im wielding the bow and not the sword

[Master] The light changes again.



[Aedean (Sedlack)] Umm...Where'd the dragon go?

[Velkyna (Joe)] FUCK

[Velkyna (Joe)] FUCK

[Velkyna (Joe)] FUCK

[Dralafi (Jared)] Maybe it's pete's dragon.

[Master] Ivellian looks startled.

[Dralafi (Jared)] oh. its over there.

[Velkyna (Joe)] WHERE IS MY SWORD

[Ivellian] How did you

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Phew

[Ivellian] Where are

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel is frantically looking for her sword.

[Ivellian] You're hurt!

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Wasn't that fun.

[Velkyna (Joe)] And crossbow.

[Velkyna (Joe)] And the immovable rods.

[Dralafi (Jared)] WHERE DID I PUT MY HEAD?

[Defthon (Don)] I lost my shortsword, but at least it was nonmagical.

[Ivellian] Vel grabbed her sword.

[Master] Sorry.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] How would he know that?

[Master] Vell grabbed her sword.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Heh

[Master] But I think the crossbow and 2 of the rods are, um, a present.

[Master] Later.

[Velkyna (Joe)] What about the other shit? Her xbow? And the two rods?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Okay.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] *snif*

[Master] Asratia looks unfazed by all this.

[Asratia] What happened to you, my chosen travellers?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] That was...interesting

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I'm going to finish my invisibility.

[Asratia] ok

[Angie/James] We explain what happened.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Any temerity Vel was expressing in the dragon's presence is gone.

[Velkyna (Joe)] What the fuck just happened to us?

[Asratia] What does Arkady say, precisely?

[Master] SOrry again

[Master] What does Arkady say, precisely?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We seem to have shifted in time....

[Defthon (Don)] We seem to have been... time transported... into the future. In this place, but it was under attack

[Angie/James] Ark says that we seemed to travel foward in time

[Angie/James] ... and that there was fighting here.

[Asratia] Asratia's eyes widen.

[Defthon (Don)] We fought a battle with an orc-golem thing, defeated him, and then were transported back.

[Asratia] How soon?

[Asratia] How soon may we expect this assault?

[Angie/James] ... and that we were attacked by Feng, who wasn't his usual nasty self. But worse

[Angie/James] Well, it seemed you were very pregnant, and disoriented.

[Defthon (Don)] You were here, Lady, and you were yet gravid.

[Asratia] furrows eyebrow

[Asratia] I . . . see.

[Angie/James] You didn't recognize us either.

[Asratia] Oh.

[Defthon (Don)] That's not necessarily true:

[Defthon (Don)] she only asked us why we were there, then returned to her disoriented state

[Angie/James] Praxis, any other clues?

[Asratia] I think it would be best if you tended to your wounds. Ivellian, we must continue a discussion we had previously left alone.

[Praxis] Sorry, boss. Nothing.

[Aric (Brian)] Perhaps we were called to your aid in a time of need, after we had left this place.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel is looking around frantically for the rods and her crossbow.

[Asratia] Not my aid, I don't believe.

[Angie/James] Arkady: Oh yea, Ivellian wasn't there.

[Defthon (Don)] I dig out my wand and CLW myself a couple times

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Your daughter's?

[Asratia] nods

[Asratia] Velkyna, come forward.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel looks up, startled.

[Aric (Brian)] Your daughter........your daughter will be Charis!

[Asratia] Your choice of scabbard speaks well of you.

[Velkyna (Joe)] She looks confusedly, but does come forward.

[Asratia] Allow me to improve it yet further.

[Asratia] Draw your sword.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Her eyes widen.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Hesitantly, she does as the dragon commands.

[Master] Spellcraft check, for those who care.

[Defthon (Don)] (I wait with the CLWing until this scene plays out)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Spellcraft: (d20+5) [12+5] 17

[Roger (Jeff)] Roger: Spellcraft: (d20+9) [15+9] 24

[Master] Asratia is casting Keen.

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Asratia] Sheathe your sword, Velkyna.

[Velkyna (Joe)] She does as she's told.

[Master] There is a small flash of light and a puff of smoke from the scabbard.

Velkyna (Joe) jumps, startled.

[Master] It seems . . . hardier now. And something else.

[Angie/James] Is it supposed to do that?

[Velkyna (Joe)] (NO)

[Velkyna (Joe)] Reflexively, /she puts her hand on her sword's hilt.

[Asratia] Thank you, Velkyna.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] And V elkyna - why don't you take my crossbow for now. I rarely need it, so it can be replaced later.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna shakes her head. "I, um, actually have another crossbow."

[Angie/James] Angie is pouting.

[Velkyna (Joe)] She's still wide-eyed in disbelief.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Oh! Well enough.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Not knowing what to do, she bows deeply to the dragon.

[Asratia] acknowledges her bow.

[Asratia] Now I truly must speak for a time with Ivellian, and I am sure you are quite tired.

[Asratia] Aric, would you bide here for a short time?

[Aric (Brian)] Of course

[Master] Ok, break out the wound-curing.

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: Wand of CLW for (1d8+5) [3+5] 8 points of healing

[Defthon (Don)] Defthon: Wand of CLW for (1d8+5) [1+5] 6 points of healing

[Angie/James] Arkady targets Defthon. Distance: 7'10"

[Defthon (Don)] hang on

[Angie/James] Arkady: You are cured ((1d8+5)*-1) [(4+5)*-1] -9 points of damage

[Asratia] Aric, what name did you use?

[Defthon (Don)] Ok, hold off any more for a sec

[Angie/James] Arkady: You are cured ((1d8+5)*-1) [(6+5)*-1] -11 points of damage

[Angie/James] Better to use spells than charges.

[Don] Defthon's hit points adjusted by 23 to 50.

[Aric (Brian)] I am sorry, my lady...I spoke the name Charis, the Bright Lady that the Oracle of Dessit said I would find.


[Asratia] Ah.

[Velkyna (Joe)] LIKE A SEBBY BABY

[Defthon (Don)] Oooookay, except I'd already rolled them. What does that mean?

[Aric (Brian)] Forgive the outburst.


[Asratia] Well, if I am to have my daughter's name chosen for me, perhaps it is best that it be done by such an august authority.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Dude, Aric's the daddy.

[Asratia] Thank you, Aric.

[Angie/James] Well, if you haven't marked them off yet... then don't mark them off

[Master] Everybody, take off your temp modifiers.

[Don] Defthon's hit points adjusted by -3 to 47.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Already done

[Master] And we're done.

[Defthon (Don)] Ok, fixed to just account for your two rolls, ignoring mine.

[Master] We can do epilogue stuff for a little bit.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] How much XP for Feng

[Aric (Brian)] Arsatia, I wish you to know my true name, the one I am not yet worthly of bearing...I am Turcanaur.

[Defthon (Don)] *shrug*

[Aedean (Sedlack)] ?

[Asratia] I am honored by your gift, Aric.

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Defthon (Don)] Can't lock the char sheet...

[Aric (Brian)] (sorry. seen Spirited Away too recently. :) )

[Angie/James] There is more to this half-orc than meets the eye.

[Asratia] Forgive me, but I must speak to Ivellian alone. Can you excuse us?

[Aric (Brian)] Of course.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Keth! That was the other half-orc!

Joe has left the game.

[Master] 1,000 XP each for defeating Feng

[Master] Joe.... gone . . .

[Dralafi (Jared)] stuypid golem

[Angie/James] he was a tough nut to crack

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 1000 XP's not bad for one enemy...

[Angie/James] Arkady is buying a mace tomorrow

[Angie/James] magical if possible.

[Master] GMW did the trick

[Master] Any questions?

[Dralafi (Jared)] holy cow its 10 o clock.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] And you cna get a better bonus off of GMW than you might buying a weapon.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Plenty. But none that I expect to get an immediate answer to.

Joe has joined the game.

[Master] Let me give you what I can.

[Master] Hey joe

[Joe] Well, shit.

[Master] 1,000 XP for Feng

[Dralafi (Jared)] whad;ya know?

[Joe] That was a nasty power surge.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Ah

[Joe] 1000xp, okay.

[Joe] Did I miss anything else?

[Master] Nah, just chattering

[Aric (Brian)] Velkyna died


[Master] Velkyna's short sword of defending is now Keen.

[Dralafi (Jared)] We ate her corpse for food.

[Dralafi (Jared)] We were gonna eat Eric Roberts, but we couldn't find him.

[Aric (Brian)] make it a commander!

[Aric (Brian)] TIM ROBBINS!

[Angie/James] Angie: can I roll manually next time?

[Master] The spell will be renewed each time it is sheathed.

[Master] No.

[Master] Unless you have a webcam.

[Aric (Brian)] and then you could make money while gaming!


[Aedean (Sedlack)] I wonder what caused the time shift?

[Master] Hey, Angie's cute.

[Master] She could play in a bikini or something.

[Master] At any rate

[Aric (Brian)] i'm just saying, with that sort of tagline, you'd get all sorts of people to watch the gripping kl00gage



[Defthon (Don)] and why did asratia seem so *specifically* alarmed when we told her what happened?

[Master] Don't forgit to mark 2 of the rods as being on long-term loan to the future.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] and what was going wrong there in the future with her?

[Joe] What does that mean?

[Master] They were Left Behind.

[Aric (Brian)] It's the Rapture!

[Joe] So we'll catch up to them?

[Angie/James] it means we're not going to seem them for about 50 years or more

[Aedean (Sedlack)] One day, we will return to this place...

[Master] Of course!

[Master] Remind me.

[Joe] Eventually?

[Master] Dude, she's due in a few months.

[Defthon (Don)] 50 years?

[Master] Remember?

[Defthon (Don)] dude, she...

[Defthon (Don)] hm.

[Aric (Brian)] i was gonna say, i'm supposed to find my god way before i die, i hope

[Defthon (Don)] :)

[Joe] Fair enough.

[Angie/James] she's gotta grow up and get preggers herself. That will take a lot of time.

[Master] ?

[Aric (Brian)] she's already pregnant. she was just ... more so

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I don't follow.

[Master] I like soda

[Angie/James] I was under the impression that it was Asratia's daughter we saw in the future...

[Joe] Me too, but I wasn't saying anything.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I assume when she said we came to her daughter's aid, she was referring to her still unborn daughter....

[Angie/James] But maybe I'm very sleepy

[Defthon (Don)] She would've looked a bit more different than that...

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I agree with Chris.

[Defthon (Don)] But then why would she have already known Aric?

[Joe] Sadly, that surge killed my entire buffer. I should've saved.

[Master] heh

[Shottamip (Tamora)] If it were a completely different dragon I think I would have noticed.

[Master] I believe that's James's job.

[Master] Praxis would definitely have noticed.

[Joe] Secellente.

[Angie/James] I've got the whole thing. I can post it

[Defthon (Don)] I've been saving the chat buffers too, if anyone needs it

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I believe Aric has a special connection with the Coming God.

[Joe] Or the god coming.

[Master] man, I'm wiped.

[Aric (Brian)] Yes.....her daughter to be.

[Master] I need compliments.

[Joe] You've been gaming since 8am.

[Angie/James] Well, you've had a long day Mike.



[Aric (Brian)] I KISS YOU



[Aedean (Sedlack)] That was much fun, once we got through the technical problems

[Angie/James] You've certainly thrown us some twists and turns I (James) didn't expect.

[Master] Yeah.

[Dralafi (Jared)] M1K3, j00 r0xX0r mi b0xxors!!!!!!!!111

[Master] Thanks.

[Angie/James] Angie wanted to hit something though.

[Master] yeah

[Master] well

[Defthon (Don)] Wow, we've been gaming for nine hours, nonstop. Been awhile since I've done that. :)

[Master] You gotta roll better than a 1

[Defthon (Don)] NO KIDDING

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Hey. I got to hit plenty. I was happy.

[Master] Lia got to waste a demon.

[Joe] And that has made all the difference.

[Master] Hey, did anyone tape this week's Buffy?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Not I.

[Master] We totally just forgot to, and it showed today here.

[Aric (Brian)] no, but i taped this week's he-man earlier tonight

[Joe] I've got yesterda's X-Men Evolution.

[Dralafi (Jared)] I did, but Im pretty sure I taped over it already.

[Master] Ah, yes. Similar, yet differentiated products. Monopolistic competition.


[Dralafi (Jared)] This weeks buffy is, um, brutal :)

[Master] It has faith!

[Master] Does Xander get maimed?

[Dralafi (Jared)] yes.

[Master] Cuz I know that's coming.

[Dralafi (Jared)] yes.

[Master] Gyeh.

[Master] ok

[Master] Thanks.


[Master] I'm ready for it now.

[Master] Like you care.

[Joe] Heh.

[Joe] You're right, I don't.

[Dralafi (Jared)] dude, when the DM asks, you answer. fuck spoiler space.

[Master] Chortle.

[Aric (Brian)] man, 3000 more strike.....mmmmmmm......

[Roger (Jeff)] I never cast a fireball this session

[Joe] 4300 or so and ANOTHER +1 DEX.

[Aric (Brian)] then usul will no longer need the weirding module


[Dralafi (Jared)] I pretty much get nothing at the next level.

[Dralafi (Jared)] well, a feat. thats good I duppose.

[Master] Heh

[Dralafi (Jared)] sadly, more dex means I have to lose armor :)

[Shottamip (Tamora)] More spells, always blissfully more spells.


[Joe] OYEZ


[Aedean (Sedlack)] I get one more 4th and one more 5th level spell

[Dralafi (Jared)] then I lose my bracers of dex ;)

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I never run out of spells anymore.

[Joe] Shouldn't they be gloves of dex?

[Master] Okay, can I answer any questions really quick?


[Master] I feel like I dropped you in, and you may have missed details.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I think I understand what's up

[Joe] I think I've got the gist of it.

[Master] Jeff and Don and Jared...?

[Master] ok

[Roger (Jeff)] I'm okay

[Defthon (Don)] Naw, you covered most of it.

[Master] ok

[Defthon (Don)] Still some holes, but we'll get it eventually. ;)

[Joe] Where exactly are we though, in terms of geography?

[Master] That's the hope.

[Angie/James] Any idea when we're meeting next?

[Master] You're floating over the west part of the Borderlands.

[Master] Okay, let's talk weekends.

[Joe] In the elven lands?

[Master] Yeah.

[Joe] Hokay.

[Dralafi (Jared)] Im as clued in as Im gonna be.

[Master] This is one of the few major power centers in the elven lands, one of the others being Nai:loglas.

[Joe] I'm free most weekends in May except Memorial day.

[Defthon (Don)] Any weekend before memorial day is good for me

[Aric (Brian)] i can't make it the weekend of the 16th

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I can make myself free pretty much any weekend in May

[Joe] I'm going to be seeing Matrix 2 and Xmen 2 but I can see it around gaming if necessary

[Aric (Brian)] amd i think Feng Shui is the first weekend in May

[Angie/James] Angie is not free the weekend of the May 17th.

[Dralafi (Jared)] The navy makes my plans for me. They dont give advance notice. Pick a weekend not memorial day.

[Master] How's the 24th?

[Angie/James] Angie: 10th, 11th of May is good.

[Dralafi (Jared)] thats memorial day, mike.

[Master] Nah, I'm running up to finals then.

[Master] oh

[Master] I thought that was the 31st weekend

[Dralafi (Jared)] lemme check.

[Defthon (Don)] Nope, memorial day is the 26th.

[Angie/James] yup

[Dralafi (Jared)] yeah

[Defthon (Don)] I should check my calendar, actually...

[Aric (Brian)] crap, finals. yeah. early in may i'll be finishing my classes.

[Dralafi (Jared)] if it were the next weekend it wouldnt be in may.

[Master] Gyeh, maybe the 31st...

[Angie/James] Angie and James will be moving on the May 31st weekend.

[Master] Or maybe the 3rd?

[Master] That's only 2 weeks, but we waited 6 weeks for this one so it evens out.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Like I said, anything's ok by me

[Joe] I'm pretty sure I'm free the May 3rd weekend.

[Dralafi (Jared)] Im pretty sure I can do that.

[Roger (Jeff)] okay by me

[Angie/James] May 3rd is fine for us.

[Joe] I'd have to run it past the Social Coordinator, who is currently sleeping.

[Master] Oh, BTW, Happy Easter, MDT and EDT folks.

[Master] Heh.

[Defthon (Don)] Ok, just checked; 3rd is Not Great for me, but I s'pose if it's the only good one for everyone

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 5/3 is fine, as long as Mike can get stuff together by then

[Master] Sorry, Don.


[Aedean (Sedlack)] You mean "CDT".

[Master] I can get stuff together; I always just laze around until the week before anyway.

[Master] Yeah.

[Joe] "Won't you two gentlement ... have a Pepsi."

[Master] CDT

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It's not Easter yet in MDT

[Master] Close, though.

[Angie/James] CST6CDT

[Dralafi (Jared)] Two small pepsi's to go.

[Master] Don, are you sure it's okay?


[Aric (Brian)] may 3 may be Feng Shui

[Dralafi (Jared)] EMMIT FITZHUME

[Aric (Brian)] (the other campaign i'm in)

[Aric (Brian)] but the GMs for that aren't online to check

[Master] Well, tell them to move it.

[Master] I'm sexxier. ;)

[Aric (Brian)] ha!

[Defthon (Don)] actually, if we could schedule dinner/lunch at around 6:30 eastern it should be just fine

[Angie/James] Oooookay.

[Aric (Brian)] there are *four* campaigns going on with my friends right now

[Master] I think we can manage that nicely.

[Angie/James] It would be nice to have breaks.

[Master] Heh.

[Defthon (Don)] :)

[Aric (Brian)] trying to schedule them is a pain. i can see if my group can go on sunday though.

[Joe] True.

[Master] Okay, let's plan on the 3rd.

[Angie/James] OK

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Cool

[Roger (Jeff)] excellent

[Dralafi (Jared)] ooh, tmbg the night before. its gonna be an all weekend party.

[Angie/James] how are your wrists holding up Mike?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I wanna rock and roll all night

[Master] ow ow ow ow

[Aedean (Sedlack)] And party every day

[Angie/James] TMBG?

[Jared] They Might Be Giants.

[Angie/James] that's not good. I've really got to work on that internet radio server software.

[Master] Yeah.

[Master] No, actually, the wrists are fine.


[Master] But Ogg Vorbis would be excellent.

[Master] Okay, I'm gonna run. Stay on as long as you like.

[Jared] gnight

[Master] Call me or something if you need me to answer a question.

[Roger (Jeff)] night

[Aric (Brian)] night

[Angie/James] The problem is there doesn't seem to be a streaming client for Mac. For Vorbis.

[Master] :)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] g'night

[Angie/James] ... only for MP3.

Jeff has left the game.

[Joe] Good night.

[Master] Sukk.

Joe has left the game.

Jared has left the game.

[Master] DOn and James: Solve this problem/

[Master] :)

[Angie/James] have a good night y'all

[Angie/James] what?

[Defthon (Don)] How about linux?

[Master] Ogg vorbis streaming.

[Master] Yeah, but Jeff's OSX only

[Defthon (Don)] Oh, right.

[Angie/James] vorbis streaming is fine for Windoze and Linux, but not for Mac.

[Aric (Brian)] find one for FreeBSD

[Aric (Brian)] and port it

[Angie/James] Prolly have to use MP3 streaming, which won't be as good a quality.

[Master] MP3 streaming means harsh delays

[Master] DOesn't it?

[Angie/James] Of course, I don't have a Mac.

[Master] We tried it.

[Angie/James] delays depend on the bitrate.


[Master] ?

[Angie/James] the lower the bitrate, the higher the compression.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Later, all

[Master] G'night.

[Master] Is that URL good and useful?

Sedlack has left the game.

[Angie/James] Dunno, will try it later.

[Angie/James] Analog line... you know.

[Master] Sure.

[Master] Catch ya later.

[Master] G'night, and thanks again, all.

[Angie/James] goodnight

[Defthon (Don)] Good night.
