[Sedlack] Mask of the Skull. We got it off the "pissin' orc cleric"

Client has joined the game.

[Don] Running a little late this morning? :)

[Master] My badd.

[Joe] That's a whole lot of clients

[Master] I thought I'd sent it to everyone

[Master] and it was just to me.

[Master] the IP, that is.

Jared has left the game.

[Don] I was just getting ready to call you...

Jared has joined the game.

[Don] ...figured you'd overslept. :)

[Master] Nah.

[Master] Okay --

[Master] Those of you with records.

[Master] Figure out how much Party Loot is out there

[Master] then divide it up appropriately.

[Master] I can give info as to how much things cost in general.

Client has joined the game.

Sedlack has left the game.

[Jared] am I conflicting with anyone's color?

[Don] Not yet...

Sedlack has joined the game.

[Jeff] Hello

[Joe] This is the loot so far:

[Sedlack] Apparently, upgrading my version of Java was not the answerr

[Joe] Old party has a Mask of the Skull

[Master] Sorry, man.

[Joe] New party has:

[Joe] Robe of Blending

[Joe] Wand of Cure light wounds

[Joe] Brooch of shielding

[Joe] +1 breastplate

[James] We'll need to keep the wand.

[Joe] Ring of the ram

[Joe] scrolls with raise dead

[Jeff] I could use some +1 breasts

[Joe] With her charisma, Vel sadly has -1 breasts.

[Master] (And huuuuge pectoral muscles)

[Don] Eh, huge tracts of land would just get in the way when you fight anyway.

[Jeff] Roger would like the Ring of the Ram

[Sedlack] Crud. I left my campaign notebook at home. I'll have to go with regular paper today.

[Joe] I figure she's got a gymnast figure. Whole lotta taught wiry muscle.

[Master] Whereas Shottamip has something akin to +6 breasts.

[Client] Testing

[Master] That's everybody!

[Angie] Once more with feeling

[Master] Okay, so Roger gets a Ram Ring.

[Tamora] If you've got it, flaunt it.

[Master] Arkady gets the CLW wand.

[Joe] Aedean gets the kickass scrolls.

[Brian] what's the brooch of sheilding do?

[James] sucks up magic missles.

[Don] protection vs magic missile

[Sedlack] The scrolls have already been noted and taken care of, from last session.

[Joe] Magic missiles have no saving throw and always hit. So the brooch is the only defense against them.

[Jeff] (Roger's char sheet is still one level behind. Can I make adjustments?)

[James] BTW, how many charges on that CLW wand?

[Joe] (outside of spell resistance)

[Tamora] Somebody shoulde use the brooch, to give the party a variety of defenses.

[Master] Jeff: Go nuts.

[Jeff] Okay

[Don] like I said in my email, I had grabbed the brooch two sessions ago; but I'm not deeply attached to it

[Tamora] Ok.

[James] Yeah, the brooch is definitely a keeper.

[Master] 45 charges

[Master] (Thanks Don for being Transcript Man.)

[Don] Jared still has my +2 bastard sword

[James] Cool, THX.

[Joe] There were 35 charges on teh ring of the ram, as an aside.

[Master] Let's do Party Loot first, then individual loot.

[Don] sure

[Sedlack] Keep in mind that the Brooch goes in the "amulet,brooch,scarab,medallion,necklace,or periapt" slot

[Jared] mmm. +2 bastard sword.

[Master] That is some pretty good Squishy.

[Master] Okay, so Joe -- total up the Party loot and figureout how much the Old Party vs. the New Party gets.

[Joe] If we decide we need something for the party, remember that Vel is holding on to the party loot Immovable Rod (one of three, the other two are paying it forward into the future).

[Tamora] Do we want to keep or sell the elephant? It doesn't get used much.

[Joe] That's 7500 gp if we want to trade it in for someone.

[Joe] Mike: I don't think we know what we're selling or keeping yet.

[Don] um, the other two were destroyed in the future, no?

[James] We have one carpet now, if we can get/keep another then we don't need the elephant.

[Joe] For example, Robe of Blending ... keep or sell?

[Master] Not destroyed . . . moved.

[Don] oh!

[Don] Got it

[Master] Nailo gave you an extra carpet.

[Master] That's permanent.

[Sedlack] there was talk of giving def the rob

[Master] You now have 2 6x9 carpets.

[James] OK, so sell the elephant, I guess.

[Don] mostly just because I was capable of wearing it

[Don] is it significantly useful to us?

[Don] and how much money could we get for it?

[Master] Sorry, it was Ivellian who gave you the xtra carpet

[Joe] Do we have a Change Self in the party? That can be useful for disguisey things.

[James] Arkady has a hat of disguise.

[Joe] If we don't have any Change Self, that is. If we do, I think we should sell the robe.

[Joe] The robe is like 12k.

[Sedlack] change self is one of my 1st level domain options

[Sedlack] (and the one I usually prepare)

[Joe] Because outside of Change Selfing, the Robe gives +10 to hide. And we've got invisible.

[Don] 12k sounds useful.

[Joe] By the way, someone with a DMG on paper should probably do the tallying.

[Don] yes. not me, I just have a PH

[Joe] I'd have to do the opengamingfoundation thang and that's a pain vs. someone with a DMG

[Don] brb

[Jared] i only have a new dmg. I vote for someone else ;)

[Joe] So by my accounting we've got:

[Don] I am away from the keyboard.

[Angie] I can use Ryan's DMG

[Joe] Ring of the Ram, to Roger

[Joe] Brooch of Shielding, to Def

[Joe] Kickass Scrolls, accounted for

[Joe] Wand of CLW, to Arkady.

[Joe] Robe of Blending, MAYBE SELL

[Sedlack] I have a DMG, but since I left my notebook at home, I'm busy reconstructing my prepped spells list

[Joe] +1 Breastplate, DEFINITELY SELL

[James] yes.

[Joe] So we're dividing Mask of the Skull for the old party, and Robe + Breastplate for the whole new party.

[James] and also maybe selling the elephant

[Joe] How much is the elephant?

[Joe] (please say a lot please say a lot)

[Angie] I am away from the keyboard.

[James] with teleport plus the flying carpets, I don't think we'll ever use the elephant again.

[Joe] I agree

[Sedlack] elephant = 17k


[James] That's 2833 for the old crew.

[Tamora] Neil just loses out. :)

[Sedlack] Or an even 7k for the elephant + the mask

[James] Yup.

[Angie] I'm back w/a DMG

[Joe] How much is the Robe of Blending and how much is a masterwork Breastplate? (+1k for being +1)

[Don] I am back at the keyboard.

[James] 350 for masterwork breastplate

[James] so 1350 for +1 breastplate

[Sedlack] robe = 10k

[Joe] Test

[Joe] That's 1261.1111 gp for the whole new party

[Joe] (from Breastplate and Blending)

[Jeff] Nice

[Joe] The 1s repeat infinitely.

[Sedlack] thanks for not typing all of them

[Master] hehe

[Joe] So I'd expect to get an infinitely repeating copper coin.

[Master] (I'm watching and lettig y'all do your things.

[Master] Joe: You can use it to play the St. Petersburg game. ;)

[Master] test

[Joe] I figured on spending enough such that Vel's willing to kick 3900 of her 7k "old party loot" into the new party pot, along with her 1261.1111

[Angie] So whats the total for the old party?

[Joe] If others want to spend it all on hats.

[Sedlack] Old party total = 8261

[Sedlack] (.11111)

[Angie] cute

[Tamora] I anyone could spare 1500 gp after whatever they were buying, Shottamip could upgrade her Cloak of Charisma.

[Tamora] More spells! Good for everyone.

[Joe] Vel will kick in 1500 towards the "more fireballs" fund.

[Jared] I just want Joe's +7 bracers of armor.


[Tamora] Excellent, thank you.

[James] Arkady can kick some in too.

[Jared] how sad

[James] OK, Arkady is going to sell some gear:

[James] trading rapier+1 for masterwork rapier (2000)

[James] selling dust of appearance (2000)

[James] selling cloak of resistance (1000)

[James] selling mithral chain shirt (1100)

[James] So that, plus the party look is 14361

[Joe] MMMM

[Jared] sweet merciful crap

[Master] Arkady can keep his own stuff to trade in for stuff.

[James] So spending an additional 1639, brings that up to 16K

[Sedlack] Anyone feel like kicking 364 gp into the "protect the Cleric" fund?

[Master] ON the other hand, if he's taking vows, that's an issue. :)

[Joe] Vel can do that.

[James] Which is a cloak of charisma +4

[Sedlack] Much appreciated, Vel.

[Joe] NICE

[Master] Right, I misunderstood.

[Master] Arkady's fine

[James] Arkady can kick in 750 for Shottamip, and 200 for Aedean.

[Master] The elves have a Cloak of Charisma +4 "in stock" (i.e. someone's looking to trade up), so that's no problem.

[Jared] is it worth getting a ring of protection +1? it seems so...small :)

[Master] (This will be the case for simple items in general.)

[Joe] Okay, then Vel gives 750 for Shot and 164 gp for Aedean.

[Tamora] Shottamip will trade in her old Cloak of Charisma +2 (4000gp) and 10500 gp cash, plus 1500 gp from grateful friends, for a Cloak of Charisma +4.

[Tamora] Thanks to Joe and James.

[Master] Right.

[James] OK. Now to update the character sheet.

[Master] That'll be quickly done; there's a sorceror who's willing to trade cloaks and will do his own upgrading (for a nice profit) later.

[Sedlack] Periapt of Wisdom +2 (4000) + Amulet of Undead Turning (11000) + 1000 cash = 16000 = Periapt of Wisdom +4


[Don] Ok, I'm having a hard time following all of this---do we each have our own money or are we splitting it amongst the party?

[Tamora] I'm just wondering, but you don't think you want to keep the Amulet of Undead Turning?

[Master] Sedlack solves the switching amulets problem and warms it up at the same time.

[Master] Don: Both.

[Master] There is Party Loot and individuals who own stuff.

[Don] That sentence made no sense, but Mike answered the question I meant to ask.

[Master] Just call me Mr. Simpatico.

[Don] :)

[Sedlack] Cloak of Protection +1 (1000) + 7261 cash + 15 Scrolls of Sanctuary (375) + 364 in donations= 9000 = Cloak of Protection +3

[Master] hehe

[Master] no prob

[Sedlack] Okay. I'll make the changes.

[Master] BTW, here comes a map of Nailoglas.

[Joe] Vel spends: +2 short sword defender + 9900 cash + 6100 party loot = +3 short sword, Amulet of Health +2, Luckstone, Vest of Escape

[Master] Actually, hang on.

[Master] I'll wait until you're done

[Master] Then I can do descriptions, et cetera.

[Master] Vel made a decision. :)

[Jared] anyone want to loan me 1775 so I can pick up bracers of archery? mmm. more bonus.

[Joe] Vel's got 1247 gp outstanding.

[Jeff] I can cover the balance

[Don] Hey Jared...

[Jared] hey don!

[Don] let's do keep in mind that you're still using my bastard sword

[Angie] 8261 party loot +366personal funds= 8626

[Don] ...which wasn't cheap...

[Jared] you can have it back.

[Jared] ;)

[Sedlack] Aedean: Reflex: (d20+8-1) [11+8-1] 18

[Jeff] So Roger is going to give, um, 528gp to Dral

[Don] Ok. Hm, now I need to price some stuff real fast. :)

[Brian] ok, so how much do i have to spend on stuff?

[Brian] i'm looking at maybe buying some larger bracers of armor

[Master] What's the Old Party Loot Count at this time?

[Angie] +1 Heavy Flail 1315, Ring of Feather falling 2200, eyes of the eagle 1000, +1and element to bow 4000 = 8515

[Brian] and possibly selling off my +1 kama, since my hands are now +1

[James] The old party look was 8261, yes?

[Angie] I'm looking for opinins on which element for the bow

[Sedlack] Aedean: Heal: (d20+6+5) [16+6+5] 27

[Jeff] Is sonic an option? Very few monsters have sonic res

[Brian] anyone know what bracers of armor +2/+3/+4 are?

[Tamora] Brian, you might want to keep both a blunt and a sjarp weapon.

[Brian] er i mean how much

[Joe] It's PLUS squared, times 1000gp

[Brian] thats' a good point

[Joe] so +2 is 4000gp

[James] bracers +3 == 9000gp

[Sedlack] brb

[Brian] and we get 8000 and change to spend?

[James] and bracers+4 is 16k

[Brian] ok that's out of my price range i'm thinking :)

[James] Yes, 8261, plus whatever else you've got.

[Joe] what food u got

[James] We've also been giving out small loans / donations to help out too.

[Jared] the dm is totally ignoring the messages I'm sending him. that llama.

[Brian] ok, so if i sell my +1 bracers (1000), with the 8261 that's well within reason to buy the 9000 bracers

[Joe] Velkyna's hit points adjusted by 11 to 86.

[Brian] does that sound like a good move for aric?

[Joe] EAT IT

[James] Brian, do you have anything else to sell?

[Joe] Brian: yes

[Jeff] yes

[Joe] You're a front-line tank, you need the AC. ;)

[Brian] not really...just the kama. and i do have a ring of +1 protection but i doubt i could buy up to the next

[James] what's a ring +2?

[Joe] Mike: I'll fuck with the nickelly details on my char sheet later. The important stuff (+1 to saves, HP, etc.) is all in there.

[Master] Jared, I'm not receiving . . .

[Master] Joe: Ok

[Jared] ring of prot +2 is 8k

[Joe] Ring of Prot is PLUS squared, x2000gp

[Brian] i think upping the bracers is a better plan

[Joe] For a guy with no armor, yeah.

[Tamora] Brian: Bracers of Armor are overwhelmed by a spell of Mage Armor, so if you think ahead and get spelled before encounters, you don't necessarily want to spend on those.

[James] Can we get him to bracers +4?

[Don] I'm thinking I'll trade in my b.sword+2 for a +2 Cloak of Cha and +2 Bracers of AC. Sound good to everyone?

[Brian] i already have a ring of mage armor

[James] Uh, why did you want charisma?

[Brian] which does a +4 to AC

[Joe] Don: You can't wear armor and bracers of armor

[Don] There doesn't seem to be a +2 Str item

[Jared] don: bracers of armor dont stack with armor

[Don] Got it, thx

[Jared] oh. joe beat me to it

[Brian] i've been stacking the two...

[Joe] Don: gauntlets of ogre power

[Master] Hey

[Master] Do the bracers of armor stack with the mage armor ring?

[Joe] Ooh. NO.

[Joe] Mage armor and bracers of armor are both armor bonuses.

[Joe] So they don't stack.

[Sedlack] "armor" bonuses don't stack, except for the ones from shields and from normal armor

[Brian] um. well, i've been using them the whole campaign

[James] Yes, Joe is correct.

[Brian] what about my ring of protection +1?

[Joe] DERP

[Master] It's only been a +1, so no biggie.

[Joe] Ring of prot is a deflection bonus, so it stacks.

[James] the ring stacks with other stuff

[Sedlack] Ring of prot is a "deflection" bonus, so it's kosher


[Tamora] Upgrade the ring, sell the bracers.

[Angie] Lia's hit points adjusted by 1 to 78.

[Brian] you can have two rings, right?

[Jeff] yep

[Jared] is vel giving me that 1200 and change? I wasnt sure from joe's original message.

[James] yes, Brian: sell the bracers. Only 2 rings, yes.

[Brian] oh wait

[Brian] it's not a ring of prot

[Sedlack] That bonus 6th level spell is gonna be sweet when I hit level 11.

[Master] Aric has a Ring of Mage Armor.

[Brian] i have an amulet of natural armor +1, ring of mage armor +4, and bracers of armor +1

[Sedlack] "natural armor" does stack with "armor", it would seem.

[Jared] yes it does

[James] natural armor does stack with regular armor.

[James] It makes your skin tougher or something like that.

[Brian] anyone know what it would be to upgrade the amulet?

[Joe] AmNatural Armor is PLUS squared x1000gp

[Tamora] Amulet of Natural Armor goes, 2000, 8000

[Joe] Tami, are you sure?

[Sedlack] Tami is correct

[Tamora] 2000 +1, 8000 +2, 18000 +3

[Joe] I thought it was 1000, 4000, etc.

[James] yes, that is correct.

[Joe] Huh.

[Joe] I'll shut up now. :)

[Tamora] I have an Amulet NA +1 myself so I was looking at that.

[James] I'm looking at the SRD now.

[Sedlack] (This is likely because it does stack with normal armor)

[Joe] Yeah, probably.

[Tamora] It stacks nicely with my mage armore spell.

[Brian] hrm. so which is the most cost effective way for me to get more AC

[James] shield spell

[Master] Gloves of Dexterity?

[Joe] Switch to fighter class and buy some full plate mail.

[Master] Perapt of Wisdom?

[James] all those are good choices

[Master] Or go for Damage Resistance.

[Master] ;)

[James] except the plate

[Joe] Snif!

[James] How's he going to get DR?

[Master] I dunno; it was just a fun thought.

[Joe] Vestments of Faith.

[Master] Aric steps up and starts TRADING BLOWS

[Master] "Let's Lumberjack this one."

[Joe] Oh, wait, that's spell resistance.

[Jeff] Levelling up?

[James] Actually, he gets DR when he hits level 20, right?


[Brian] how much for level 20? :P

[Master] one MILLION GP.

[Don] Hey Mike, are you checking your messages?

[Master] FOr some reason, they're not working right here.


[Master] So Yahoo me instead.

[Master] If you wanna chat privately.

[Master] It's a better client anyway.

[Joe] Mike, are you logged into IMSA?

[Master] I am now.

[Joe] Sexcellent. For future reference, I spose.

[Don] Well, so iChat is a *much* better client... but doesn't do Y!M. But anyway.

[Master] Yes, well.

[Jared] so, I'm spending 3325 of my money, 528 of rogers money, and 1247 of vel's money on bracers of archery.

[Master] I'll fire up AIM if I need to.

[Master] Jeff: What's Roger interested in?

[Angie] What are bracers of archery?

[Jeff] Roger's fine with what he's got

[Jared] +2 competence bonus to attack, +1 to damage with a bow.

[Tamora] damage within 30 feet

[Jared] yeah, as with everything.

[Joe] Velkyna: Hide: ** MODIFIED BY: SKILL+DEX (+1+1) ** (d20+19+1+1) [18+19+1+1] 39

[Joe] Huh. that

[Joe] 's not right.

[Jeff] Roger: Spot (Within a mile of Pilagro): (d20+12) [2+12] 14

[Master] Jeff: Okay. But if you think of some nontraditional things, let me know.

[Jeff] okay

[Master] Tomes of Understanding or some such.

[Jeff] Out of his price range

[Master] Or a night with a pretty elf, whatever works.

[Jeff] Dude!

[Master] We can talk; Roger's been a little neglected lately. ;)

[Angie] I am back at the keyboard.


[Joe] Velkyna: Hide: ** MODIFIED BY: SKILL (+1) ** (d20+19+1) [13+19+1] 33

[Master] Special instruction from Laucian Nailo is also possible.

[Joe] There we go.

[Master] RP stuff if you're interested

[James] Well, that's how it works in GTA:3, right?

[Sedlack] Aedean: Will: (d20+9+6) [6+9+6] 21

[Jeff] If Roger's happy, i'm happy. And Roger's almost always happy :).

[Brian] ok, if i bought a ring of prot +2 would that stack with what i already have?

[James] Yes.

[Brian] btw mike i realized that while i took care of HP, i never finished upgrading Aric to Level 10

[Master] ok well do that. ;)

[Brian] so i should dump the bracers of armor since they're not doing anything?

[Master] yes

[Joe] Velkyna: Escape Artist: ** MODIFIED BY: SKILL (+1) ** (d20+12+1) [4+12+1] 17

[Tamora] Shottamip: Dragon Eyes: can see magical auras in her area

[Brian] great so in the end i only get +1 to AC :)

[Joe] Huh. It's not taking my changes.

[Angie] I am away from the keyboard.

[Brian] what are the gloves of dex?

[Joe] 4k

[Joe] for +2 dex

[Sedlack] 16k for +4

[Brian] which is +1 right (for AC)

[Master] Don't forget your Vestments, btw.

[Master] On your char sheet.

[Brian] i did add those too

[Joe] Brian: yes,+2 dex -> +1 AC

[Brian] although i didn't add your update you emailed me

[Master] Kewl -- please rememeber the possible unpredictable effects at appropriate times.

[Sedlack] Joe: did you remember to hit "Save" after making changes?

[Master] Do that, then.

[James] So ring of prot +1, and gloves of dex +2 == +2 AC

[Joe] Velkyna: Escape Artist: ** MODIFIED BY: SKILL (+1) ** (d20+18+1) [20+18+1] 39

[Joe] There we go.

[Jared] test

[Angie] I am back at the keyboard.

[Brian] no, it'd be ring of prot +2, but i'm losing the bracers of armor

[Jared] Dralafi: Attack: +2 LBow/+3 Arrow (Base) [B] hits AC: ((d20+22)) [(7+22)] 29

[Joe] Chris: I'm not sure what was up. I'd made changes earlier, and they took, this time they didn't take until the second time.

[Master] Wacky.

[Brian] although i can't afford both unless someone gives me a loan

[Joe] Vel's tapped out, sorry.

[Sedlack] How big a loan?

[James] I could throw in at least 1000gp

[Brian] let's see...8261+346+1000 (bracers) ~= 9500

[Don] Currently looking at gauntlets of +2 str and cloak of +2 cha. Thoughts?

[Joe] Sounds prudent.

[James] Don: why do you want cha?

[Brian] with ring of prot being 8000, i'm like 2500 short. probably too much to ask for, nevermind

[Don] (cha is my prime req, and among other things, improves my saves)

[Master] b/c Defthon is a Leader of Elves. :)

[Joe] Paladin is all about the Cha.

[James] Oh, right.

[Sedlack] Cha improves paladin saves?

[James] Forgot about the paladin thing.

[Joe] Yes.

[Sedlack] Hunh.

[Don] Divine Grace. :)

[Master] hardcore.

[Joe] They get +N to saves, where N is their Cha bonus.

[Joe] (all saves, that is)

[James] OK, Brian, I can loan Aric 2500.

[Joe] Plus cha is their spell thing.

[Sedlack] Cool.

[Don] Alsogives me more spells, eventually

[Master] test test test

[Master] ok

[Master] noted

[Joe] Including turning, and more healing from hand-laying.

[James] That sounds naughty.

[Joe] Basically, all pally bonuses work through cha.

[Sedlack] I was aware of the turning thing, naturally

[Don] Ooh, forgot about the laying-on-of-hands.

[Don] Yup


[James] CHA instead of WIS... will remember that from now on.

[James] So +STR and +CHA is a good choice.

[James] So, is Aric going to also get those +2 gloves of dex?

[Master] Are we winding down, then?

[Master] Oh, btw:

[Don] Ok, trading in my bastard sword (8335) for a cloak of cha +2 (4K) and gauntlets of ogre strength +2 (4K). I get to keep the change, yes? (Woo!)

[Master] http://www.blahedo.org/serendair

[Brian] ok, 8241+346+1000=9587 + 2413 loan = 12000 - 8000 (ring of prot +2) - 4000 (gloves of dex +2) = 0

[Master] Don: Give it to someone. It's simpler that way.

[Don] The change, you mean?

[Master] This is supposed to be all barter-y

[Master] Yep.

[Brian] sound ok for me?

[Sedlack] Sounds good, Brian

[James] Yes. Do it.

[Brian] ok. doing.

[Don] Well, I was going to more generally offer loans and grants from my surplus. :) Anyone need anything?

[Sedlack] And then finish levelling

[Master] Aric needs a little loving.

[Sedlack] Roll #1: (d6) [6] 6

[Master] (For the record:)

[Sedlack] Roll #1: (d6) [4] 4

[Brian] i just want to be loved. is that so wong?

[Master] This is all taking place about 6 hours after we start, game time.

[Brian] btw, mike, do my vestments constantly glow?

[Master] I just wanted to get it out of the way.

[Don] I can't cover the full 2413, but I can contribute a bunch...

[James] Something that feels so right can't be wrong.

[Master] Yes.

[Brian] i'm thinking that's bad for infiltrating situations

[Master] Don, just give him the 335.

[Master] Brian: Yes. So wear a t-shirt or something.

[Master] ;)

Sedlack has left the game.

[James] Uh oh.

[Joe] Think Gandalf in TTT

[Brian] and that makes the +2 to CHR go away?

[Master] Or a concealing cloak. :)

[Don] okeydokey, 335 to Aric it is

Sedlack has joined the game.

[Brian] "I am not Aric the Gray....I am ARIC THE WHITE!"

[Don] Got that Brian?

[Brian] 335? ok...so the rest from james?

[Brian] i was just goign to update my equipment in one fell swoop

[James] That's fine.

[James] Arkady was going to loan Aric 2500, how much does he actually need?

[Joe] 2500 - 335

[Brian] 2413

[Joe] -335

[Brian] 2078

[James] OK. Done.

[Brian] woot. may the beatage begin

[Sedlack] Don't forget to level up, Brian, if you haven't already.

[Brian] yeah i will, just as soon as mike verifies

[James] Oh, three attacks per round, un-armed.

[Master] Go get 'em, Brian. No prob.

[James] Aric also gets another +1 to AC.

[Brian] aww, i don't get a cute little "you find so and so..."?

[James] and +1 to all saves.

[Master] Nah, I'm out of cute for a few minutes.

[Brian] where do i get another +1 to AC?

[Joe] Monkage

[Master] Monkage

[Master] (monkage monkage monkage

[Master] )

[Sedlack] Jinx!

[Brian] must've missed that when looking over the upgrade

[Sedlack] KI STRIKE

[James] So Arics AC went up by a net +2. Nice.

[Joe] judo CHOP

[Don] (man, these monks look a lot bigger than they did from far away)

[James] I am away from the keyboard.

[Master] ok is everyone more or less traded around?

[Sedlack] Did Aric sell off the kama?

[Joe] Done

[Master] no

[Don] da

[Jeff] done

[Don] all done

[Sedlack] I'm done.

[James] I am back at the keyboard.

[James] done

[Tamora] done

[Velkyna (Joe)] If we're settling into gam0r mode, friendly reminder to chat as characters

[Sedlack] Now that Aric's got KI STRIKE, does he need the kama anymore?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Sharp weapon?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Fair enough.

[James] His fists are blunt weapons, right? He might need a slashing weapon.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Some of us forget these things...:)

[Brian] tami made a good point, that i may want a striking weapon

[Jared] Im good.

[Angie] I'm still updating

[Master] ok

[Brian] is anyone seeing this?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Seeing what?

[James] nice map

[Master] Okay!

[Brian] wakcy, massive delay in seeing my chat messages

[Master] Thanks!

[Master] Okay

[Master] After your strategy meeting with Asratia and Ivellian

[Master] Ivellian directs you to fly to Nailoglas (there's an umlaut over the i)

[Roger (Jeff)] I'm going to have to reconnect...

[Master] And meet up with Nailo (no umlaut) to

Jeff has left the game.

[James] My screen isn't updating properly...

Jeff has joined the game.

[Master] And meet up with Nailo (no umlaut) to discuss what the new strategy means and how you fit into it.

[Master] James: What's up?

[James] map zoom doesn't work. Part of the map hasn't been re-drawn when obscured by another window.

[Joe] Aric's hit points adjusted by 7 to 70.

[Brian] mine either

[Master] Try colelcting garbage

[Master] It's a huge map

[Master] Or at least a large one.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Mine works fine. 1.4.0 R00LZ

[Brian] did that

[Aedean (Sedlack)] mine is fine 1.4.2 roxxorz

Don has joined the game.

[Don] Much better.

[Master] Ok, well, that's life in Javaland.

[Master] At any rate.

[James] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] WHen you were last in Nailoglas, it was a tree village, of a type with which you are quite familiar.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I wish getting booted had a Will save to negate

[Brian] i have heard that 3.5 is better...yet to see the book though, bookstore only had DMG and MM when i was in

[Master] Houses bored into and on tree limbs.

[Master] Long ropes between trees, with platforms and whatnot. Neat stuff.

[Master] It's changed.

[Master] Over time, refugees from parts of the forest have settled here, and so the elves have set up

[Master] platforms between the cables connecting trees.

[Master] (that's the purple stuff)

[Master] on which they've built extensively.

[Master] In addition, the forges have expanded significantly in their spots on the outcropping there.

[Master] Colorful tent neighborhoods (not really cities) have sprung up in the area left uncovered by the platforms

[Velkyna (Joe)] Defense Minister: Build City Walls!

[Master] And underneath the platforms, in an area called "The Gloaming" is a weird constant-twilight state,

[Master] lit by glowing globes and full of people doing various errands.

[Master] elves, rather.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Elves are people, too!

[Master] You are in what is likely one of the largest elven settlements in history.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Demi-people, anyway

Jared has left the game.

[Velkyna (Joe)] DAS BOOT

[Angie] I'm done with updates except the element for the bow.

Jared has joined the game.

[Master] And it's only growing, as more and more villagers and wandering bands come for their safety.

[Jared] O think your map killd klooge.

[Master] Noted for future reference.

[Jared] I also think I can't type.


[Master] It is beautiful, as are so many elvish creations, but a symbol of strife as well.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We can see what you type

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Are you "paused"?

[Master] You recognize the building in which Nailo lives and works.

[Dralafi (Jared)] no, I just mean in general. ;)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Ah.

[Master] And fly down to it. Because it is daylight, there are no elvish patrols out, so you are unchallenged.

[Master] As you approach, a number of elves on errands suddenly tense up and draw weapons, prepare spells

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Defense Minister: This city is undefended! We should build troops now!

[Master] Then notice the elves and half-elves on the carpets and relax

[Velkyna (Joe)] BUILD CITY WALLS

Arkady (James) calls out a greeting.

[Lia (Angie)] Nice to be noticed

[Master] Several citizens look surprised, then shrug and continue on their business.

[Master] You land and enter Nailo's office.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Hey, you said Nailo didn't have an umlaut

[Master] Yeah, I messed up on the map. ;)

[Don] I was just thinking that.

[Master] I was wondering if anyone would notice.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Spot check successful

[Don] Na•loglas

[Master] ••••••••

[Don] :)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] i'i'i'i'i'i'i

[Master] •'•'•'•'•'•

[Aedean (Sedlack)] The elves are invisible

[Velkyna (Joe)] IT'S A TRAP!

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Praxis sees them.

[Master] Ivellian meets you at the entryway.

[Arkady (James)] Heh.

[Ivellian] I trust your trip was uneventful?

[Velkyna (Joe)] The in-flight bag lunch was awful.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] That was my barf bag.

[Lia (Angie)] so far so good

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Ew.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ooooh, that explains it.

[Arkady (James)] Ewwwwh.

[Defthon (Don)] Heeeuuwwwww.

[Ivellian] I didn't need that.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Neither did Vel.

[Master] heh.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I thought it was a little too salty.

[Master] Okay, back into character for me.

[Lia (Angie)] look before you eat

[Ivellian] Laucian is waiting upstairs. We are deciding how best you can assist us.

[Ivellian] I imagine you will want to be part of that discussion.

[Defthon (Don)] If possible, yes.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It would make sense

Ivellian walks over to a door and opens it, then beckons you through it.

[Ivellian] This way.

Ivellian takes some stair up into his offices.

[Ivellian] Aric, I never got a chance to ask you -- what are those marvellous clothes you are wearing?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Bugle Boy jeans

[Velkyna (Joe)] NICE PANTS

[Ivellian] I can see that they are potent artifacts.

[Defthon (Don)] OOC HŽ. Bon pantalon.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (As opposed to the elves, who are impotent artifacts)

[Aric (Brian)] They were a gift...from Charis.

Ivellian raises an eyebrow.

[Velkyna (Joe)] *BLAAAARE*

[Ivellian] I . . . see.

Ivellian clears his throat

[Aric (Brian)] We had a nice chat while you were all debating whether to unleash the weapon of destruction.

[Ivellian] Mm.

[Laucian Nailo] Ivellian, have our guests . . . ah, I see! Welcome, friends!

[Master] You file into the room.

[Master] Unsurprisingly, Laucian's office is also quite beautiful, with an interesting pattern somehow painted or shaped on the floor,

[Master] wooden walls, and simple furniture.

[Laucian Nailo] I am glad that you have come.

Laucian Nailo smiles somewhat ruefully

[Laucian Nailo] It seems that we are blessed with an enormous surge in immigration.

[Laucian Nailo] We have made some preparations, but more come in each day.

[Laucian Nailo] Finding places and supplies for everyone will be a challenge.

[Arkady (James)] Can we help here?

[Laucian Nailo] That is what Ivellian and I were discussing.

[Laucian Nailo] Certainly, the orcs will step up their raids now that our scouts have been so badly decimated.

[Laucian Nailo] We have enough to patrol the area around here, though.

[Laucian Nailo] So that is how we will feed and clothe ourselves.

[Laucian Nailo] We cannot lose those few who remain, and so I must ask you to find and destroy the nightwing.

Arkady (James) nods.

Laucian Nailo says, coming to the point in uncharacteristic fashion for anlf.

[Laucian Nailo] an elf

[Defthon (Don)] *whew*

Ivellian looks a little startled at the brevity and plainspokenness.

[Defthon (Don)] That's a tall order

Laucian Nailo smiles

[Defthon (Don)] Is there any possibility of attacking it on the ground?

[Laucian Nailo] The perils of success.

[Defthon (Don)] Or do we fight in the air?

[Laucian Nailo] All things are possible, but we do not know where it roosts.

[Lia (Angie)] Do we know IF it roosts?

[Laucian Nailo] It must hide from the daylight somewhere.

[Arkady (James)] Is there so divination we can do to learn where (or if) it roosts?

[Laucian Nailo] These creatures hate the sun.

Laucian Nailo puts his hands up helplessly

[Velkyna (Joe)] (OOC: Is there still an Augury spell?)

[Laucian Nailo] My strength is taken up countering the Orcs' mages.

Arkady (James) looks to Aedean?

[Laucian Nailo] Do you have this power?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] jas

[Aric (Brian)] WEE JAS

[Defthon (Don)] Joe's falling down on the job here.

[Velkyna (Joe)] My badd, I was Erica-ed for a minute.

[Velkyna (Joe)] There used to be a 3rd level cleric spell Augury

[Velkyna (Joe)] Let you ask some questions, get vague answers.

[Velkyna (Joe)] They may have renamed it.

[Defthon (Don)] It's Cl2 now

[Velkyna (Joe)] Contact other Plane was a 5th level spell, let you ask questions of an extra-planar being with more precision.

[Defthon (Don)] "An augury can tell you whether a particular action will bring good or bad results for you in the immediate future."

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It now allows you to ask specific questions and get a good and/or bad response about the outcome of specific actions.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] No good for this.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Looking at other options.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Hm. That's more or less what I remember, just a little restricted (probably because they reined it in to Cleric 2)

[Arkady (James)] Well, we do have a last-resort option...

Laucian Nailo looks at Arkady

[Velkyna (Joe)] As always, do we want to blow it on this?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] "Divination" might work

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It's like Augury, but gives a bit more info.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] "Scrying" might be an option

[Arkady (James)] It doesn't seem 'Diviniation' would be able to tell us where the nightflyer is.

[Laucian Nailo] I am unfamiliar with the parameters of these spells.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It might be able to give us "useful advice" about where to find it

[Laucian Nailo] Perhaps it will tell us which bait we could use for a trap.

[Aric (Brian)] what's "Devine Guidance" do?

[Arkady (James)] What spell is that?

[Velkyna (Joe)] It lets you play offensive tackle for the Denver Broncos in the early 80s.

[Aric (Brian)] er Divine.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Oh, DIVINE Guidance.

[Arkady (James)] I don't have it in the PHB.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It's not in the PHB

[Arkady (James)] Ah, that would be why then.

[Laucian Nailo] That is the greatest service you could perform for us.

Laucian Nailo stretches

[Laucian Nailo] I believe I shall go for a walk.

[Laucian Nailo] We have guest quarters arranged for you.

[Defthon (Don)] Ok, so with a divination, we might be able to find where the nightwing roosts?

[Laucian Nailo] With large enough beds to accomodate those of you who are not built to elfin frames.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I _suppose_ "Commune" only costs 100 XP, but that's a last resort as far as I'm concerned

[Aedean (Sedlack)] And I'd rather not waste XP on this.

[Laucian Nailo] Tomorrow, we will have a ceremony of welcome to greet the coming of the Chosen Ones to our city.

[Aric (Brian)] oh, when are they arriving?

Laucian Nailo waits

Arkady (James) laughs out loud.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] snorts (delicately)

[Roger (Jeff)] Can we ask refugees if they've encountered any chill auras?

[Lia (Angie)] Thank You

[Laucian Nailo] Of course; we trust your judgements.

[Laucian Nailo] Ivellian, could you see that descriptions are passed around the city?

[Velkyna (Joe)] They'd have to be extremely recently arrived refugees.

[Laucian Nailo] Especially Aric's -- we don't need any unfortunate confusion resulting in injury.

Laucian Nailo looks at Aric

[Laucian Nailo] Especially because we'd lose.

[Arkady (James)] I could try interviewing them (gather info skill) to see if we can figure out where it roosts.

[Defthon (Don)] That could help.

[Defthon (Don)] Does the nightwing generate its chill aura even while asleep?

[Laucian Nailo] That's a good idea.

[Master] Does the nightwing sleep?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Undead don't sleep

[Defthon (Don)] ...and keep in mind that it would have to roost out of sunlight

[Defthon (Don)] sleep, rest, whatever it doesn when out of sunlight

[Velkyna (Joe)] The chill aura's on 24/7 I thought

[Defthon (Don)] ok.

[Aric (Brian)] any caves or deserted buildings / castles / what have you in the area?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I think the relevant area would be very large.

[Defthon (Don)] but perhaps a larger issue is, it probably roosts in a cave or something, which refugees wouldn't be going through.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'm sure there are some

[Arkady (James)] This thing is pretty big right? It would need a big cave.

[Joe] I am away from the keyboard.

[Ivellian] I shall go and inform those who live here that you are to be trusted.

[Arkady (James)] OK, so I'm going to go talk to refugees, what's everyone else going to do?

[Ivellian] Oh!

[Ivellian] I nearly forgot.

[Ivellian] The artificers on Solius Outcropping have offered to engage in some . . . trading with you.

[Ivellian] We cannot simply gift you with our best equipment

[Ivellian] But we will trade for your magical items and upgrade them where appropriate.

[Ivellian] Or if you have gold, we can use that as well . . . we still trade with human lands through a torturous route.

[Defthon (Don)] Excellent!

[Arkady (James)] Thanks. That's going to be very useful.

[Ivellian] I shall let them know of your arrival as well.

[Master] (obviously, this is where the Great Trading of Stuff happens.

[Arkady (James)] (aside) Shottamip could earn some extra cash w/ teleport...

[Master] )

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Hmmm... once I get the new cloak, I ought to be able to charm someone into throwing in an extra scroll or something for free.

[Joe] I am back at the keyboard.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] How many people with 24 Chr are wandering around this continent, after all? 5?

[Lia (Angie)] I still need to decide on an element for the bow

[Defthon (Don)] OOC Good heavens, you're at 24 now?

[Defthon (Don)] Wowo

[Shottamip (Tamora)] What are your options, Angie?

[Velkyna (Joe)] I've been at 24 dex forever. It'll be 25 when I gain a level.

[Master] Why not just another +1?

[Master] Yes, but we knew Vel could see through time. :)

[James] Yeah, but my diplomacy is still better. :-)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] When nightfall comes, I can try to scry on the nightflyer.

[Aric (Brian)] i have a +1 to CHR rolls now. WOOT

[Aedean (Sedlack)] The fact that I've seen it should help.

[Master] More of a +3, in total, Brian. :)

[Defthon (Don)] Why wait til nightfall?

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's when he gets new spells

[Defthon (Don)] We want to find out where it is during the day

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 1) Because I need to prepare my spells at dusk

[Master] Oh I see what you were saying. Clueless Kimmitt.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 2) Because there might not be any distinguishing characteristics in whatever cave (etc.) it's hiding in.

[Roger (Jeff)] What about ghost touch?

[James] We'd want to get it right at dusk, when it takes off from whereever it roosts.

[Aric (Brian)] would attacking it by daylight be more prudent?

[Velkyna (Joe)] I think Claidan already has ghost touch

[Velkyna (Joe)] Oh, but the bow. that might be nice.

[James] Since scrying has a 1hour casting time, maybe scry at dawn to see where it goes to land.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] That would be ideal. Sadly, it takes an hour to locate the subject. But we might get some decent idea of the general area.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] That works even better!

[Velkyna (Joe)] But then it's ravaged shit for another night.

[Velkyna (Joe)] More people die.

[Defthon (Don)] Well, it's likely to get most of a night's ravaging in anyway;

[James] Maybe prep two scrys. One to see where its attacking tonight, and one at dawn, if we don't defeat it.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Well, the question is "are we going after it tonight?"

[Defthon (Don)] and we'll be a lot more likely to kill it if it's locked down in a cave.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] We could attack in daylight tomorrow, gives us a good retreat option (i.e. outdoors).

[Defthon (Don)] Have we even really rested since our last encounter?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yes. That was last night.

[Velkyna (Joe)] You guys saw what it can do. What if it takes out what's left of the griffon riders.

[Defthon (Don)] Well, it was late last night....

[Shottamip (Tamora)] So tell them to stay down.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Not that late.

[Velkyna (Joe)] But it's going to go off and kill something else.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Take out a village. Or something.

[James] Let's do a scry tonight, and see who it's harrassing...

[Aedean (Sedlack)] And then try to intercept? That seems pretty reasonable.

[James] ... and harrass it instead. If we can kill it, great. ...

[James] and if we can't, we scry at dawn to see where it sleeps the day away.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Two scryes is a bit...pricy.

[James] We don't have to go into full do-or-die enagement tonight. Just keep it from killing people.

[Roger (Jeff)] pricy gp wise or xp wise?

[James] scry uses a focus, not a material component. Or did you mean the spell slots?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] pricy spell wise.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Although....

[Master] Ok hang on

[Master] I'm gonna whip up a map and try to be clever and shit

[James] Well, what else would you take for the 5th level slot, raise dead?

[Lia (Angie)] We are assuming it doesn't have a protected lair

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Flame Strike

[James] Good point, the lair might be guarded.

[Velkyna (Joe)] put your 5th level spells (current) into the ioun stones and then memorize the Scries

[Dralafi (Jared)] I thought flame strike wouldn't do much against the nightwing anyway?

[Dralafi (Jared)] (or doe we not know that? I forget...)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I don't have any "current" ones. I used them both in the battle with the nightwalker

[Velkyna (Joe)] Fair enough.

[James] We know the nightwalker was mostly immune to our spells.

[Master] Vel has some idea that This Shit Don't Work.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] There might be other things to fight than just the nightflyer

[James] Well, we could just do one scry.

[Lia (Angie)] Do we have any reports from the elves?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Working on another couple thoughts, hold on.

[James] If we're flying arround tonight, then it is likely the nightflyer will find us.

[Lia (Angie)] Can we lay a trap for it?

[Roger (Jeff)] Is it possible to check out the castle to see if it's making its lair there?

[James] We can do that.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Hmm...Find the Path sadly will not work

[Lia (Angie)] Do we know if any of our invisible options work against it?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] How fast are the carpets?

[Velkyna (Joe)] We don't know.

[Velkyna (Joe)] (for sure)

[Velkyna (Joe)] But they see invisible.

[Velkyna (Joe)] (for real)

[Aric (Brian)] hey mike, btw, for your reference, the 4 skill points i got at 10, 3 are going to Escape Artist and 1 is going to Listen

[Velkyna (Joe)] I.e. our characters don't know that they can see invisible.

[Lia (Angie)] That's what I was trying to determine

[Master] roger that, Brian.

[James] Brian: not going to put any in Tumble? Joe will be disappointed.

[Master] One of you could use the elves' library to learn more about Nightfliers.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm Tumblicious.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Our carpets are faster than the flyer, right?

[James] If they are, they're not much faster, I thought.

[Roger (Jeff)] LIBRARY!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] How fast is the flyer?

[Aric (Brian)] james: my tumble's at +11, i keep blowing listen checks :)

[Master] Similar in speed to the carpets.

[Master] So far as you can tell.

[Master] Slower than Gryphons, therefore.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Brian: bear in mind that the DC for tumble-through-opponent is 25. It might be worth bumping that up a bit more to ensure success.

[Arkady (James)] Well, can we send our gryphon patrols as usual, and as soon as they see it, they run away?

[Arkady (James)] And then have Asratia tell us where it was spotted?

[Lia (Angie)] I'm not much use for discussions of magic, I'll see if the elves have other records that are useful

[Lia (Angie)] OOC ie go to the library

[Arkady (James)] Well, then I (Arkady) should go talk to the refugees.

[Master] Okay.

[Master] Okay.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I could use Wind Walk to turn seven of us into mist, allowing us to fly out and 60 mph (600'/rd.) and look for it.

[Master] The rest of you should spend time talking to the artificers if you've nothing else to do.

[Arkady (James)] Arkady: gather information: (d20+9) [20+9] 29

[Master] Or just gawk around.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] After nightfall, of course

[Master] Nice roll, stud.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I could even suck up two Scryes at that point

[Arkady (James)] Thanks.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] If we don't get useful info some other way.

[Master] Okay

[Master] James goes around the city, gets to know it.

[Master] His usual good humor and ability to fit in everywhere serves him well.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Not to mention the fact that he speaks Elvish

[Master] He traverses the platforms, gets to know the neighborhoods, visits the gloaming (oh yeah that too)

[Master] heads into the tent cities.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Roll #1: (d4) [1] 1

[Aric (Brian)] there are no children here, right?

[Master] Right.

[Master] He's pretty much En Fuego.

[Master] Chases down a dozen rumors, talks to a bunch of people.

[Defthon (Don)] (that's "on fire", not "in heat".)

[Velkyna (Joe)] Actually, he's both.

[Arkady (James)] LOK

[Arkady (James)] LOL

[Sedlack] I am away from the keyboard.

[Master] He can say with absolute confidence that no one in this city knows a damn thing about the nightflyer's location.

[Arkady (James)] LOL!

[Master] But he's gotten himself thoroughly known and liked, which is at least something.

[Defthon (Don)] what a surprise!

[Defthon (Don)] :)

[Velkyna (Joe)] ... but he did find a killer recipe for spinach casserole.

[Roger (Jeff)] (ooc) What roll would be appropriate for library research?

[Velkyna (Joe)] (ooc: I think it would depend on what you were looking for)

[Master] Jeff: Gimme a Knowledge (whatever) roll, with a circumstance bonus.

[Master] Arcana and Religion would both work.

[Master] Lia, you can either roll one of your own,

[Roger (Jeff)] Roger: Knowledge (Arcana): (d20+10) [6+10] 16

[Arkady (James)] Angie didn't get a message I sent her either.

[Master] or add 2 to Roger's roll.

[Aric (Brian)] mike, joe made a good point ... can i switch that listen point to a tumble point?

[Master] Aric: Yes.

[Lia (Angie)] I"ll help Roger

[Master] Actually, come to think of it . . . you can take 20.

[Master] You're spending the hours.

[Velkyna (Joe)] SWEET

[Master] And you've got a thoroughly conducive environment.

[Master] So that's a 32.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] II can help, too.

[Master] Okay, 34.

[Master] No one else, though -- too many cooks and all that.

[Master] Here's what you get:

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel will tag along to the library, out of curiosity.

[Master] The Nightflyer is an immensely powerful undead, the means of creation of which is essentially unknown.

[Aric (Brian)] i'm just going to walk around the city, and take in the fresh air. try to clear my mind to prepare.

[Master] There are hints regarding extremely powerful rituals and whatnot.

[Master] Aric gets a *lot* of attention.

[Aric (Brian)] good or bad?

[Master] The creature is immune to spells of what appear to be 6th level or less

[Master] And shrugs off blows even from low-level magical weapons.

[Arkady (James)] !!!

[Lia (Angie)] Ouch

[Velkyna (Joe)] "Is that bad?"

[Defthon (Don)] THAT'S BAD

[Defthon (Don)] How low-level?

[Aric (Brian)] ooc: perhaps it's time to celebrate the /leaving/ of the chosen ones...

[Master] It's not entirely clear.

[Arkady (James)] LOL!

[Master] It can, more or less at will:

[Lia (Angie)] Well, we were able to hit it's friend

[Master] cause disease, charm person, cloudkill, confusion, darkness, dispel magic, hate, hold person, invisibility,

[Velkyna (Joe)] HATE

[Master] detect magic, and communicate telepathically.

[Master] There are hints that it has something like a Death Gaze, but this seems to be limited in power.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Big deal, I can Hate at will too.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I laugh at your petty Will-save abilities.

[Master] And it is immune to cold as well as resistant to most elemental effects.

[Master] Finally, the creature can grab and drain the magical power from weapons and other items.

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!!!!

[Master] Any questions?

[Lia (Angie)] !!!!!!

[Arkady (James)] Can we go home now?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Any way to counteract the magic drain?

[Velkyna (Joe)] How about the invisibiiity?

[Aric (Brian)] what's the dane's phone number?

[Lia (Angie)] OOC Mommy

[Defthon (Don)] Ok, I'm no longer interested in getting close enough to it

[Master] You don't have a lot of information there; it's not clear whether it can See Invisible or just uses some kind of weird othersense.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Hey Dane? There's this nightwing talking all sorts of trash about your mother.

[Defthon (Don)] to stick it with my sword

[Velkyna (Joe)] It also said you're a pussy.

[Arkady (James)] This will probably be aerial combat anyway.

[Master] A big fat half-elf whale loving pussy.

[Velkyna (Joe)] ... with bad hair.

[Defthon (Don)] Well, I'd been hoping for non-aerial so I could use my sword.

[Master] Don prefers land lines.

[Defthon (Don)] But now I'd just as soon not get that close

[Lia (Angie)] Ranged weapons from cover are looking better and better

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Any way to counteract the magic drain?

[Master] Don't let it get you.

[Defthon (Don)] Is it more magic-resistant than the nightwalker was?

[Master] No.

[Defthon (Don)] Because the jazzed-up arrows worked just fine.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Can the magic drain be dispelled afterwards?

[Lia (Angie)] So GMW arrows are a must

[Master] (Roger, of course, is incredibly excited both by having a chance to research such an interesting creature and the chance to tell everyone about it.)

[Aric (Brian)] i'm gonna need some GMW'd crossbow bolts

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ditto

[Defthon (Don)] Lots of GMW arrows....

[Ivellian] I'm gonna need new pants. Good grief.

[Arkady (James)] Arkady will do a batch of X-bow bolts as well as a batch of arrows

[Velkyna (Joe)] Good thing I always carry ... EMERGENCY PANTS

[Aric (Brian)] hey, will a daylight spell help against it?

[Aric (Brian)] cause i can cast that with my pants

[Aedean (Sedlack)] No

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Sadly

[Master] You're not certain, but you don't think so.

[Arkady (James)] magic emergency pants.

[Dralafi (Jared)] lots and lots of arrows. also, more arrows

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It has to be actual sunlight

[Master] ok time for the scry

[Aric (Brian)] curses

[Aric (Brian)] hey mike what's your Yahoo name?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Okay, hold on a sec.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Do we think we might want to do the Wind Walk scouting?

[Master] Kind of a chicken and egg problem

[Master] YOu need to scry to get info on whether or not to wind walk

[Master] Brian: kimmitt23

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I was asking the other members of the party.

[Arkady (James)] OK, when we're ready to talk off...

[Arkady (James)] GMW arrows: Lia: 10, Defthon: 10, Dral: 30

[Defthon (Don)] That's three rounds' worth.

[Arkady (James)] GMW crossbow bolts: Shot: 10, Roger: 10, Vel: 15, Aric: 15

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Don't bother with me.

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's four rounds-worth.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'll take hers.

[Arkady (James)] Do we want to do two batches of GMW arrows?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I'm not a great shot, and I can keep boosting other people.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Okay, Mike.

[Defthon (Don)] Since the *entire* combat will be ranged, maybe.

[Velkyna (Joe)] It's too bad you can't do a half-bolts, half-arrows batch of 50

[Defthon (Don)] How many spell slots do you have?

[Arkady (James)] I get 3 3rd level spells.

[Roger (Jeff)] I don't have a crossbow

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Do more arrows, I think.

[Arkady (James)] Shottamip could loan you her x-bow, if she's still got it.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Yes, I can lend it out - do you want it?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean will burn the Candle of Invocation while preparing his spells, allowing him to prepare as if he's 11th level (and cast the 6th level spells as long as the Candle burns).

[Roger (Jeff)] Okay.

[Roger (Jeff)] I think I'd be using it at a -4 though.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] For me, the crossbow is really an extreme-backup-I'm-out-of-all-spells thing.

[Velkyna (Joe)] You shouldn't be. Rogues get xbows.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I have to make a couple more decisions now, so I'll let you know the changes to prepped spells.

[Roger (Jeff)] That's right!

[Roger (Jeff)] cool

[Velkyna (Joe)] And you're a 1st rogue.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Plus if Shottamip can use one (sorc) I'd assume you could (wizard)

[Master] Aedean: Roger that. Good thinking.

[Master] Actually, sorcs get a bigger weaponset than wizards

[Master] It's assumed they'remore about doing stuff and less about research, et cetera.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] We don't do so much studying in books, y'know.

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's so odd. And low-level wizards get fewer spells and would be more likely to need a weapon. What a pimp

[Dralafi (Jared)] wizards get xbow proficienciy

[Master] Wizards get more Feats and the usual stuff.

[Master] Oh, well, there we are then.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] And so many spells to choose from!

[Dralafi (Jared)] actually, better than rogues, since a wizard can use a heavy

[Master] hehe

[Master] I want to see Roger use a Heavy Crossbow

[Arkady (James)] Well, let's go all-out on GMW then.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] So, Roger is borrowing my light crossbow?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Rogues can use Heavy as well.

[Roger (Jeff)] Yes

[Velkyna (Joe)] At least medium-sized ones.

[Master] Put the thing on a tripod and call it a ballista.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I know Vel can use one if she wanted.

[Dralafi (Jared)] oh yeah. missed that with the not being lumped in

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Roger, please keep count of how many bolts you use up so that I can cross them off my sheet at the end.

[Roger (Jeff)] Okay

[Master] Time to scry?

[Arkady (James)] or do we want to do GMW on Dral's bow?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Dral's bow is alread +2.

[Dralafi (Jared)] my bow is already magical like

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I would prefer more arrows.

[Roger (Jeff)] That would only do a + to attack, not damage, I believe

[Arkady (James)] OK, 2x GMW arrows, 1 GMW x-bow bolts

[Shottamip (Tamora)] We don't want to run out.

[Arkady (James)] Lia: 20, Defthon: 20, Dral: 60

[Velkyna (Joe)] Actually, it does + to attack and damage, but doesn't count for DR.

[Dralafi (Jared)] someone remember to haste me when we get there :)

[Roger (Jeff)] huh. okay

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I was already SO there, Dral.

[Velkyna (Joe)] That's what makes a magic +1 bow better than a masterwork bow.

[Dralafi (Jared)] excellent.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Okay. In addition to what I previously sent you, Mike:

[Defthon (Don)] Um yes, and me too.

[Master] sure

[Aedean (Sedlack)] jjjj

Sedlack has left the game.

[Defthon (Don)] whoops.

[Master] Sadlack


[Dralafi (Jared)] can we use the new haste so everyone is hasty? :)


[Master] Jared: No.

Sedlack has joined the game.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Haste is only a 3rd level spell. I can keep those up for a long time.

[Master] Happylack

[Aedean (Sedlack)] *sigh*


[Aedean (Sedlack)] OK. In addition to what I sent you before, Mike:

[Master] jjjj?

[Velkyna (Joe)] My badd: "IM HAUS"


[Aedean (Sedlack)] 1st level: add 1 Protection from Evil

[Master] ok

[Arkady (James)] I am a donut.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 3rd level: add 1 Dispel Magic

[Master] ok

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 4th level: add yet another Death Ward

[Master] ok

[Master] Soy un perdedor

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 5th level: replace Ethereal Jaunt with Scrying, and add an additional Scrying

[Master] ok

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 6th level: Wind Walk x2

[Master] You are the wind beneath my walk

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (Thanks to my bonus 6th level spell...)

[Master] okey-dokey

[Master] Roll that Scry

[Velkyna (Joe)] Fig. 2: This is gonna be so cool.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean will immediately cast the two Wind Walks

[Aedean (Sedlack)] They last 9 hours.

[Master] kewl

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean is one of the 7.

[Defthon (Don)] and do what exactly?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Who wants the other 6.

[Arkady (James)] Well, everyone gets one, right?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] The Wind Walks make you vaporous and allow flight at 60 mph (600 ft/round)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] There are more than 7 in the party, are there not?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] You said you were using 2 of the spells?

[Defthon (Don)] nifty

[Velkyna (Joe)] Does it affect weapons? I.e. can you still attack effectively?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yes.

[Defthon (Don)] SCHWEET

[Aedean (Sedlack)] One can switch between solid and vaporous form.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] So that isn't 14 people?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Doing so takes 5 rounds

[Arkady (James)] Oh, there's 8 people total for the WW?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] No. It is Aedean +3 people for each casting of the spell

[Dralafi (Jared)] its him + 3 for each casting.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] So, Aedean +6 for two castings.

[Arkady (James)] Oh. Now I understand.

[Master] two people don't get vaporous

[Master] They get to fly carpets

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Exactly.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Do we want a fast force of the best attackers then?

[Arkady (James)] I'll fly a carpet.

[Master] Ok

[Roger (Jeff)] I'll fly the other.

[Defthon (Don)] this is just for recon, yes?

[Lia (Angie)] I think at leats one archer should be on a carpet

[Master] "No spellcasting is possible while in vaporous form."

[Master] FYI

[Master] Why not have the Archers with independent flight capacity?

[Arkady (James)] I cast invisibility on myself and on my carpet.

[Master] That's even more hardcore than originally believed.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Also, Aedean will swap a Guidance in for a Resistance

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Anyone can fly back to a carpet and sit down.

[Master] ok

[Roger (Jeff)] I ... would also like to cast invisibility on myself and my carpet

[Dralafi (Jared)] can I shoot while Im a cloud?

[Defthon (Don)] are we proposing to actually attack this way?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yeah. You can't really use your weapons while vaporous, either.

[Defthon (Don)] because the carpets will be dispelled....

[Defthon (Don)] and we have to go non-vaporous for any attack (arrows, spells)

[Arkady (James)] It doesn't say that you can't attack while vaporous...

[Master] Indeed...

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Arkady (James)] It says explicitly that you can't cast spells, however.

[Master] That's correct.

[Dralafi (Jared)] when it dispels the windwalk, does it happen one at a time or all at once?

[Defthon (Don)] But the arrows would be vaporous, yes?

[Master] Until they the bow . . .

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Okay, then, even better. 'Cause we get DR 20/+1 in vapor form, too

[Master] left the bow . . .

[Dralafi (Jared)] PSST. DON: QUIET

[Master] Interesting question, Jared: I'd say all at once.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] So, go vaporous archery.

[Dralafi (Jared)] Im sure the nightwing counts as +1 :)

[Master] or, rather, 4 at once.

[Jeff] I am away from the keyboard.

[Master] Best usage:

[Master] Put most folks on carpets

[Velkyna (Joe)] three ... Aedean's got two spells on him.

[Master] when/if carpets are dispelled

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Oh, so individual friends don't control their own form?

[Master] go vaporous

[Master] nah, individuals control their forms

[Master] but the 4 vaporous ppl are 1 spell

[Velkyna (Joe)] I thought that took 5 rounds?

[James] Does Roger have featherfall prepared?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] That would work, provided we're more than 30 seconds above the ground

[Defthon (Don)] GO GO PHYSICS MAN

[Lia (Angie)] I have the featherfall ring now

[Dralafi (Jared)] can w wait a day so roger can learn me featherfall too? :)

[Defthon (Don)] Q: How do we interpret "DR 20/+1"

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Bad news is: 30 seconds = 2.72 miles

[Defthon (Don)] ?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] No.

[Master] DR 20 means you take 20 less damage

[James] Uh, terminal velocity is about 150mph or so.

[Master] +1 means you have to have a +1 weapon or better to hit.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Point

[Master] and break through the DR

[Master] at which point, DR stops working at all.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] DR 20/+1 - remove 20 points from each damage strike by a non-magical weapon.

[Master] That's a better, more succinct explanation.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] The ability to cast 6th level spells comes from a very limited resource.

[Jeff] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] Right -- it's use it or lose it.

[Master] Okay, let's do the scry and worry about details later.

[Defthon (Don)] Ok, so that's meaningless for the nightwing, right?

[Master] Don -- yes.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I think we're windwalking more for the mobility.

[Defthon (Don)] ok.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Okay. Aedean will use Guidance to give himself a +1 on the Scry check

[Master] ok

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I also recommend that Arkady inspire competence

[Master] hehe

[Velkyna (Joe)] JUKE

[James] Sure.

[Velkyna (Joe)] BOX

[Velkyna (Joe)] HERO

[Velkyna (Joe)] (stars in his eyes)

[Arkady (James)] so that's +2

[Aedean (Sedlack)] (total +3?)

[Arkady (James)] yes

[Master] ok

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Okay, here we go:

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Scry: (d20+2) [6+2] 8

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 11

[Master] ok

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Phew

[Master] You're a firsthand knower

[Master] so you need a 10

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yep, so DC is 10

[Velkyna (Joe)] FUCK A DUCK


[Dralafi (Jared)] I hate it whn I see thing like 'Orc Half-Dragon'.

[Velkyna (Joe)] THAT'S NOT COOL

[Aedean (Sedlack)] What do I see?

[Orc Half-Dragon] In some kind of a cave, the nightwing is standing and staring at the half-dragon orc

[Master] dangit

[Master] ok

[Master] The half-dragon is shouting at the nightwing

Orc Half-Dragon brandishes an obviously magical morningstar

[Orc Half-Dragon] DO NOT THINK TO DEFY ME!

[Orc Half-Dragon] There is a pause, and the nightwing visibly backs down.

[Master] grr

[Master] I'm all out of sync

[Dralafi (Jared)] no, no defy him! that's a great idea!

[Master] ok here we go again.

[Orc Half-Dragon] Good . . .

[Velkyna (Joe)] I heartily recommend the defiance.

[Dralafi (Jared)] DEFIANCE: It's what's for dinner

[Orc Half-Dragon] Soon, you will feed once again on the souls of elves.

[Aric (Brian)] EAT HIM, MR. NIGHTWING.

[Velkyna (Joe)] YOU CAN TAKE HIM

Sedlack has left the game.

[Velkyna (Joe)] DAS BOOT

[Dralafi (Jared)] you gonna let that sissy orc talk to you like that?

Sedlack has joined the game.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Furthermore, he implied your mother was promiscuous.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Damn ioexception.

[Orc Half-Dragon] But your cousin was destroyed by some godspawned wretches, and I shall not throw you away.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] What happened after "good...."

[Orc Half-Dragon] (Soon you will feed once again on the souls of elves)

[Velkyna (Joe)] (and we heckled)

[Defthon (Don)] http://www.blahedo.org/serendair/transcript-030727-5.html

[Orc Half-Dragon] You shall be . . . reinforced . . . yes.

[Velkyna (Joe)] NNNNNRRRR

[Orc Half-Dragon] I shall see that you are well prepared.

[Defthon (Don)] aw, fuck.

Orc Half-Dragon looks up


[Orc Half-Dragon] Ah, our brave wizard approaches.

[Velkyna (Joe)] WAIT FOR IT

[Master] Aedean, wisdom check

[Velkyna (Joe)] STAY ON TARGET

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: WIS check: (d20+6) [18+6] 24


[Master] The wizard will almost certainly detect the scry, and you will lose the advantage of this information.

[Arkady (James)] We just lost Porkins!

[Dralafi (Jared)] EAT THE WIZARD'S SOUL TOO.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'll cut the connection.


[Dralafi (Jared)] and there's a delicious strawberry center!~

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Well, then.

[Defthon (Don)] why would we have lost the info?

[Velkyna (Joe)] "advantage"

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We'd have lost the advantage

[Defthon (Don)] ok, why?

[Velkyna (Joe)] I.e. "surprise"

[Master] He'd know that you know and then act differently.

[Defthon (Don)] I'm not sure how much info we gained there.

[Arkady (James)] Do we know where this cave is?

[Master] No.

[Dralafi (Jared)] the nightwing does not like orc. or bavarian creme.

[Master] But you do now know what a member of the Triumvirate looks like.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Key/

[Aedean (Sedlack)] But it's possible one of the elves might recognize the description of it

[Velkyna (Joe)] Or know where some possible caves are.

[Arkady (James)] Can we talk to them real quick?

[Velkyna (Joe)] To the batmobile!

[Arkady (James)] Did Aedean see anything interesting or distinctive in the cave?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] So, that was the half-dragon blackguard?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yeah, that was Queen Bitch.

[Dralafi (Jared)] We could attack the nightwing with hummus.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] What kind of dragon takes an orc as a lover?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] And, it would seem that the flyer is not flying tonight


[Arkady (James)] The dragon could have been really, really drunk.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Find a dragon with its arm gnawed off.

[Defthon (Don)] heee

[Master] Right, then.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Also, there is some indication that the wizard and the blackguard are possibly together right now

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Which would suggest that the yuan-ti might be a better first target

[Arkady (James)] Er, what's that?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] But it would be nice if we could figure out where that cave is

[Velkyna (Joe)] half serpent, half man abominations.

[Master] Not incredibly possible.

[Velkyna (Joe)] third of the triumvirate.

[Arkady (James)] OK, time to use the Visier card I pulled from the deck of many things.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Hold on a sec.

[Master] Crap, you broke my adventure.

[Master] ok kewl

[Dralafi (Jared)] lol

[Master] Lemme look up effects.

[Arkady (James)] LOL!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Let's see if the description of the cave bears any fruit

[Velkyna (Joe)] I love it when that happens.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Or not

[Velkyna (Joe)] But I agree with Chris.

[Master] The cave was pretty nondescript.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We should maybe wait and use the deck thing as a last resort.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] okay, then

[Master] Does Aedean have any background in geology . . .?

[Arkady (James)] OK, let's see if we can figure it out otherwise.

[Master] I mean, if he were a serious dwarf or something.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] hardly

[Master] you know?

[Master] Otherwise, it's like, "It's a cave."

[Velkyna (Joe)] How many mountainous areas are in the region? And what's the range on detect undead?

[Master] I mean, the size might pull it down to maybe a couple dozen areas, but the badlands

[Master] are hardly well mapped-out, so . . . suck.

[Master] Maybe if you found a Ranger who had extensive experience in the area, a half-orc who'd listen to cash . . . hm.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Well, if the stone were red or something, it might significant, although Aedean wouldn't necessarily know the significance

[Master] That's the issue. Aedean's a bright guy, but this just isn't his field.

[Master] Besides which, he'd be paying attention to other things.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Right. So, a nondescript grayish cave

[Master] Essentially.

[Master] dimly-lit, because half-dragon orcs don't really care about lighting.

[Aric (Brian)] "with a half-orc-dragon in it"

[Master] Mostly, the half-dragon was glowing.

[Lia (Angie)] Any idea on size?

[Master] That particular room was something like 50' across.

[Dralafi (Jared)] Hey, anyone seen a cave with a glowing hlaf dragon orc?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Fair enough.

[Dralafi (Jared)] We're pretty sure its on the planet somewhere

[Master] We could do a Gather Information!

[Arkady (James)] OK.

Sedlack has left the game.

[Defthon (Don)] and within a few hours' flight by nightwing

[Arkady (James)] Arkady: gather information: (d20+9) [19+9] 28

[Master] That's relevant.

[Master] Arkady: Ask the Oracle. Maybe.

[Dralafi (Jared)] NICE ROLE

Sedlack has joined the game.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] *sigh*

[Master] yeah well

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Roll #1: (d3) [2] 2

[Arkady (James)] How can I ask the Oracle?

[Master] You don't know; you just know that she might have good info.

[Master] Oh, hell, might not.

[Master] Or might not see you.

[Master] Who knows? But hey, she's an Oracle.

[Arkady (James)] Well, can Shottamip TP us back to Dessit quickly?

[Master] Yes.

[Defthon (Don)] http://www.blahedo.org/serendair/transcript-030727-6.html

[Master] There are TP wards right on top of the city,

[Master] but you can easily fly out of them.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 404 File Not Found

[Defthon (Don)] What is this oracle exactly?

[Arkady (James)] There's this demi-god type oracle in Dessitt, who we talked to previously.

[Master] (So it's about 2 hours into night.)

[Ivellian] Hello.

[Dralafi (Jared)] does this oracle have cookies?

[Velkyna (Joe)] The best kind.

[Ivellian] What course of action do you have planned for this evening?

[Arkady (James)] You can come along and ask her yourself.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Not last time.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We're working on that still...

[Defthon (Don)] OOC this is weird, it keeps stalling mid-upload.

[Ivellian] Working?

[Ivellian] But the nightwing is surely on its way!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] The nightflyer is not flying this night, it would seem.

Ivellian blinks

[Ivellian] I . . . do not understand.

[Lia (Angie)] It's being "reinforced"

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I was able to scry upon the flyer. There are forces greater than it which have convinced it not to risk itself.

[Arkady (James)] OK, so we're going to the Oracle? Let's zip over there and be back in half an hour.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] At least, not for now.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] No reason for us all to go to the Oracle, right?

[Ivellian] This is excellent news!

[Ivellian] I shall pass word to our scouts.

[Arkady (James)] No, Shottamip and I, who else?

[Ivellian] We shall have some fun with the orcs tonight, for possibly the last night.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Don: -6 does not follow -5.

[Lia (Angie)] Be careful

[Aric (Brian)] It would probably be prudent to still be on guard as if the nightflyer was coming.

[Lia (Angie)] Exactly

[Defthon (Don)] No, but -6 is longer than -5.

[Aric (Brian)] Do not be lulled into a false sense of security on the chance its plans are changed.

Ivellian grins

[Arkady (James)] Don't want to act as if we know what's goin gto happen.

[Ivellian] We now have some idea of what to expect

[Ivellian] And we thank you for your research, as well.

[Ivellian] We have a few tricks up our sleeves, yet.

[Ivellian] If naught else, our Grypons can outfly these creatures.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Don: what's the naming convention then?

[Ivellian] So -- who's going to Dessit?

[Master] grr

[Master] Who's going to Dessit?

[Arkady (James)] Shot and I. Who else?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Vel will go.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] What are we going there to ask about?

[Defthon (Don)] OOC I just click "Save HTML..." and save to the next file in sequence. It starts from the last time my client reset.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] ah.

[Arkady (James)] To see if the Oracle knows something about where the nightflyer is roosting, and the Triumverate.

[Aric (Brian)] i would be interested in seeing the oracle again, but we don't want to take too many people

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It probably makes sense for Aedean to go. In case it's helpful to probe his mind for faces etc.

[Defthon (Don)] OOC up to my last reset is in -2.

[Arkady (James)] OK then, let's go.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shall we fly a carpet out of town to start?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We can fly ourselves

[Arkady (James)] Can't we just TP directly to the Oracle?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Right, we're windwalking.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Arkady avoided the Windwalker-ness.

[Arkady (James)] Or just near the island?

[Velkyna (Joe)] We can't TP in/out of Nailoglas.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] But not Arkady. Ooops

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yeah, let's take the carpet

[Arkady (James)] Fine, we take a carpet then.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Oay. Go just out of town and set down.

[Lia (Angie)] Does someone need to protect the carpet?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Probably a good idea

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yeah.

[Arkady (James)] OK.

[Roger (Jeff)] Can't TP the carpet as well?

[Shottamip (Tamora)] How heavy s t?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Too much weight.

[Arkady (James)] Less than 100lbs.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Brng t along.

[Arkady (James)] or not...

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Are we ready?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] What's the TP limit?

[Master] Hang on, the laptop is having keyboard issues

[Arkady (James)] 550lbs for Shot.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] We're bloc ed by Seren's Folly.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We've teleported to Dessit before, haven't we?

[Master] she was talking about spatial limits

[Master] You cannot teleport off Serendair.

[Master] That's all.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ah

[Arkady (James)] Yes. And we've been to the oracle's place too.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] So; are we ready to go?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I guess so.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Teleport: transports herself and up to (50*11) [50*11] 550 pounds of willing creatures to another location, teleport check (1d100) [24] 24

[Velkyna (Joe)] Nice.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] actually put us down n the entry hall.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] To be polte.

[Master] You arrive in the entryway, and there is no one around.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I was gonna say...

[Velkyna (Joe)] d00d th oracel iz h07!!!1!

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Please nsert the 9th letter of the alphabet as approprate.

[Master] The area is silent, except for the chirping of insects and birds.

Velkyna (Joe) is preposterously deferential.

[Master] (as you may recall, the oracle's bulding was in the middle of a garden on the top of a large cylindrical building.)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Shall we announce ourselves?

[Velkyna (Joe)] and quiet.

Arkady (James) walks up and bows.

[Master] Hang on

[Aric (Brian)] ooc: "sup, dawg?"

[Arkady (James)] (she knows who we are)

[Master] So you go into the Oracle's chamber, then?

[Arkady (James)] (she prolly know we were coming too)

[Shottamip (Tamora)] OOC: also mssng letter 11.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] That's why I said announce rather than introduce

[Shottamip (Tamora)] OOC: sorry about the mess.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yes, but politeness and all that

[Master] You carefully walk into the Oracle's chamber. Unlike last time, when she was flanked by powerful guardsfolk, she is alone.

[Master] Her face is unreadable, but she is well-kempt.

[Velkyna (Joe)] ... and h07!!!1!!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Arkady: it's your show.

[Oracle] If you ask no questions, you will receive no truths. I advise this

Arkady (James) bows again.

[Master] Sorry -- "I advise this." There should have been a period.

[Arkady (James)] (thinking)

[Arkady (James)] Can you help us with our situation w/ the nightflyer?

[Dralafi (Jared)] ooc: She's unbelievable?!

[Velkyna (Joe)] ooc: unbeleevalb h07!!1!

[Arkady (James)] (do I think she can't tell us, or doesn't want to tell us?)

[Oracle] You are presumptuous.

[Arkady (James)] I apologize.

[Oracle] Do you consider me a tool, to be used when your resources run low, then?

Velkyna (Joe) takes a step back, reflexively.

[Arkady (James)] We are in a desparate situation, against a deadly foe that threatens the entire land.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] \me thinks "It was Arkady's idea"

Aedean (Sedlack) thinks "It was Arkady's idea"

[Arkady (James)] Is there something we can do to aid you?

Arkady laughs

[Master] whoops

[Master] how'd that happen?

[Defthon (Don)] heh

Oracle laughs

[Arkady (James)] I have a bad feeling about this...

[Oracle] Perhaps you can return me to my husband and children. Or find my son, lost in the outer planes. No, I know -- you shall run an errand for me, and then I shall, in gratitude, grant your request.

Velkyna (Joe) is obviously terrified.

[Oracle] For you are unmatched in power, and can do so many things which I cannot.

[Defthon (Don)] OOC *sigh*

[Arkady (James)] Ah. And the nature of this errand?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] *psst* I think she's being sarcastic

[Oracle] Your son is dead.

[Oracle] Go.

[Arkady (James)] Ufh!

[Aric (Brian)] well that went well

Velkyna (Joe) is relieved, but still obviously terrified.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: Teleport: transports herself and up to (50*11) [50*11] 550 pounds of willing creatures to another location, teleport check (1d100) [37] 37

Sedlack has left the game.

Sedlack has joined the game.

[Dralafi (Jared)] I hate it when the demigods get angry

[Master] Shottamip has no choice but to cast a teleport spell. She is compelled.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] TheOracle booted my connection

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Ah.

[Aric (Brian)] so any chance we could talk to the MySQL of Dessit?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Well, back to plan A. Let's vaporize and do some scouting.

[Defthon (Don)] OOC -7 posted

[Arkady (James)] So do we have an errand or what?

[Dralafi (Jared)] go for postgres.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Someone has chldren?

[Master] Arkady is obviously in some pain.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Unless someone else has a better idea.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Arkady? You okay?

[Arkady (James)] No.

[Defthon (Don)] what happened?

[Defthon (Don)] what did the oracle say?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] The Oracle was pissed at us.

[Velkyna (Joe)] /her face is white as a sheet. "Nothing."

[Master] Wisdom checks for Shottamip, Aedean, and Velkyna.

[Arkady (James)] My son, back up north, is dead. The oracle didn't say how or why.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: WIS check: (d20+6) [15+6] 21

[Velkyna (Joe)] Velkyna: WIS check: (d20+0) [6+0] 6

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Shottamip: WIS check: (d20+2) [11+2] 13

[Velkyna (Joe)] +1 from the luckstone.

[Master] ok

[Master] thanks.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] The Oracle may not have been telling you the truth.

Velkyna (Joe) looks genuinely sympathetic. "Oh. I'm ... I'm so sorry, Arkady."

[Arkady (James)] ... I never got a chance to know him...

[Aedean (Sedlack)] He might not be dead. There's only one way to know for sure.

[Arkady (James)] ... but I was hoping to make up for my absence ...

[Arkady (James)] Well, dead or not, there's nothing I can do for him here.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Well, let's take care of business here and then see if you can't get back and do something about it.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I say we do a little scouting while we can. Split up and see if we can find anything.

[Arkady (James)] OK, so we still have no idea where the nightflyer is located?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We still have several hours.

[Lia (Angie)] Let's see of the elves have any reports on actviity tonight

[Master] OOC:

[Master] It's 6:30 PM on the east coast, and we're gonna quit at a time which allows people to go to work.

[Master] We simply cannot do the encounter I have planned in 2 hours.

[Arkady (James)] Who's on the east coast at this point besides Angie?

[Roger (Jeff)] Me

[Velkyna (Joe)] Don

[Master] Jeff. Don's Central now.

[Arkady (James)] Don's here.

[Defthon (Don)] nope, I'm in Palatine

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ah

[Master] Jeff, how late are you up for? You work, yes?

[Roger (Jeff)] FREE PALATINE

[Roger (Jeff)] yeah

[Velkyna (Joe)] As usual, I can go all night like a lumberjack.

[Defthon (Don)] Not that I'd be likely to stop the show in any case. :)

[Master] ok I was thinking something like 9 PM CDT 10 PM EDT.

[Master] And then we start right on the fighting next session.

[Defthon (Don)] Ah, but can lumberj go all night like a lumberjack? :)

[Master] Maybe get through 2 significant encounters.

[Roger (Jeff)] Heh

[Aric (Brian)] any plans to stop for dinner briefly? i haven't eaten today.

[Velkyna (Joe)] But I wanna level NOW ...

[Master] hehe

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'm with Joe

[Master] You're all so adorable.

[Roger (Jeff)] I second the food break

[Master] Can it wait 30 mins?

[Master] THat way we can order the pizza and it'll be here when we break.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 30 min is fine

[Arkady (James)] fine.

[Master] Ok let's go order our pizzas, then. :)

[Roger (Jeff)] okay

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Heh. Anyone else we want to scry on?

[Aric (Brian)] the yuan-ti?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] That's unlikely to work.

[Defthon (Don)] doesn't it need to be someone Aedean has seen?

[Aric (Brian)] ah

[Aric (Brian)] didnt know how it worked

[Arkady (James)] Unless he's got a really, really good description.

[Aric (Brian)] "ever seen the GI Movie? Remember Serpentor...?" :)

[Aric (Brian)] throw a Joe in there after GI

[Defthon (Don)] god, what a bad movie that was

[Aedean (Sedlack)] "the yuan-ti" just ain't gonna cut it, methinks.

[Arkady (James)] The orginal movie, that's been a long time ago.

[Arkady (James)] Don Johnson was in that (voice), right?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It mostly a joke. I doubt there's anyone worth scrying on that it would be safe to scry on.

[Master] I'd give you "the yuan-ti in orcish lands" for a DC of 20

[Master] Not counting wards and whatnot, of course.

[James] Angie: lost you again.

[Defthon (Don)] !!!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Fair enough.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Of course, even with Inspire Competence, I'd need to roll an 18 or better.

[James] Sure.

[Master] Well, that's an issue, yes.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I mean, we could _try_ it.

[Aric (Brian)] can he take 20?

[Master] No.

[James] No.

[Master] I'd do a Take 10, but not a 20.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Yeah, well a Take 10 just won't go in this case.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Probably better to do that after Wind Walk wears off.

[Master] okay, so what's next?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Since it takes an hour to cast

[Aric (Brian)] could fly around in WW form and look for the cave

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'm up for us doing some scouting, if no one has a better idea

Sedlack has left the game.

Sedlack has joined the game.

[Master] Aric -- that's not a great idea; it's certainly in orcish lands and likely to be well-guarded.

[James] Mike: so you don't want me to use the Visier card, right?

[Defthon (Don)] works for me. Might as well not waste the WW.

[Master] James: I want you to do whatever the heck you want.

[Master] I enjoy having my adventures broken, especially with only 1 hour left so I can plan for next time.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Alternatively, we could just help the elves harrass the orcs.

[Master] ;)

[Defthon (Don)] -8

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Or, we could try to do something along the lines of the old "capture and interrogate" plan.

[James] That's fine too. Let's just fly around and see what we can see then.

[Roger (Jeff)] Let's fly around and taunt the nightwing.

[Master] sorry, not an hour.


[Master] More like 3 hours.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We can't taunt what we can't find

[Master] :)

[Lia (Angie)] Let's at least coordinate with the elves

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I mean, I wouldn't be surprised if the nightflyer takes wing tomorrow night.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It'll probably be easy enough to find then.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] So, let's see what the elves are doing tonight.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I heartily recommend beating up on something worth about 1.5k XP.

[Master] Amusing.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] More like 5000 XP

[Velkyna (Joe)] " ... per person"

[Velkyna (Joe)] My badd.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Oh.

[James] I need about 2.5k for Arkady.

[Lia (Angie)] So work with the elves tonight and then scry again in the morning?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'm not greedy...500 is enough

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I don't see too much point in scrying again

[Velkyna (Joe)] I _am_ greedy, and 1.3k or so is required.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] The flyer won't leave the cave in the morning

[Aedean (Sedlack)] And, if the wizard is still around, there's a significant danger of getting caught

[Lia (Angie)] But we might get some info on how it has been reinforced

[Aedean (Sedlack)] And Aedean might get his brain fried or something

[Master] Mm.

[Master] I guess I have two questions:

[Master] 1) Are you going to patrol, and if not:

[Master] 2) Are you going to break out the Vizier card?

[Master] and, if not:

[Master] 3) Let's move forward to tomorrow.

[Lia (Angie)] So lets at least help the elves tonight

[James] I say we break out the Vizier card, and take down the nightflying now.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] We can't

[Defthon (Don)] I'm for flying around in incorporeal form, but mostly just for the coolness factor.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] It's with the half-dragon

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Who will kick our asses

[Dralafi (Jared)] smack that bitch up.

[Defthon (Don)] Sorry, I guess it's not technically "incorporeal". Whatever.

[Master] Sedlack isn't kidding.

[Velkyna (Joe)] And take our names, in that order.

[Defthon (Don)] what does the viz card do?

[James] You think it is still around? I'd think it has left by now.

[James] He's prolly a busy guy, you know.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I think we have to wait until tomorrow, and take down the nightflyer with its new reinforcements

[James] Lots of people to murder, that sort of thing.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Don: "Answer to any one question."

[Master] And not skimpy, either.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I suspect the half-dragon will stay until the reinforcements arrive

[Master] You have a problem, it tells you how to solve it.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] And, once the reinforcements arrive, the nightflyer will probably come to us anyway.

[James] I could ask how what the weaknesses of the Triumverate are, and how to defeat them...

[Master] Of course, the means may not be in your possession, but knowledge and all that.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Better to fight it over elven lands than over orcish lands.

[Master] One caveat:

[Master] The Triumverate have a fairly direct connection to a couple of major gods.

[James] That could be a problem.

[Master] And the Vizier is more person-oriented than culture-oriented.

[James] ???

[Master] So you might get an answer like, "You're boned," or "Work on the following things for the next fifteen years."

[Dralafi (Jared)] as long as its only a couple of gods, we're cool.

[Master] All about you, rather than what the elves can do.

[James] LOL!

[James] Fine, let's go out on patrol then.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'm behind that.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Let's hunt some orc.

[Master] So you can feel really good about asking about the nightflyer

[James] (I was looking to save the Vizier card for Jarret anyway)

[Aric (Brian)] Frodo you fool.

[Master] Less good about how to wax the Triumverate.

[Master] That's all.

[Master] (I'm not going to bone you too hard. If you ask about the Triumvirate, you will kill them sooner. Just if you ask about the Nightflyer, you get specifics and suchlike.)

[James] So is there a consensus here? Angie thinks we should go out on patrol. I'm leaning that way too.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] That's what I favor

[Roger (Jeff)] Yes

[James] We'll encounter the nightflyer soon anyway.

[Defthon (Don)] me too

[Velkyna (Joe)] Agreed.

[Master] ok

[Aedean (Sedlack)] That's certainly my thought. It will come to us

[Dralafi (Jared)] ok

[Master] So you're patrolling for the evening?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yes.

[James] We'll be in contact w/ Asratia, and the other patrols.

[Master] ok

[Master] Tonight is an amazing contrast to last night.

[James] If they spot something, we can high-tail it over there quick.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Test.

[Master] Whereas last night was an endless nightmare of violence and death,

[Master] there is nothing -- *nothing* -- happening tonight.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Figures. They're regrouping

[Master] The orcs' discipline is uncanny. Their campfires burn, their scouts patrol, and they are launching no raids whatsoever.

[James] Can we find an orcish supply depot and blow it up or something?

[Master] You'd need better intelligence than you have right now.

[Velkyna (Joe)] What intelligence. Campfires are burning.

[Master] After they collapsed Erdun, the elves kind of lost contact with the Orcish lines.

[Master] Oh, sure, you can strafe a border camp if you'd like.

[Master] Pizza's here; gimme 10 minutes to throw something together.

[Master] We can break for dinner, and I'll pull together an encounter.

[Master] :)

[Arkady (James)] So we're talking a break for a while? How long?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] OK.

[Master] Let's call it 20 mins.

[Velkyna (Joe)] test

[Sedlack] I am back at the keyboard.

[Sedlack] I am away from the keyboard.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Heh

[Roger (Jeff)] We could TP a large boulder into the atmosphere and let it fall on a camp

[Angie] I am away from the keyboard.

[Roger (Jeff)] food!

Jeff has left the game.

Jeff has joined the game.

[Roger (Jeff)] Shit, wrong button

[Jeff] I am away from the keyboard.

[Arkady (James)] That would be interesting.

[James] I am away from the keyboard.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Not TOO large only 550 lbs.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Could carry more than that on the carpets and dump t.

[Aric (Brian)] i'll be back...may take me a bit longer than 20 minutes, have a couple other things i need to do

[Jared] I am away from the keyboard.

[Velkyna (Joe)] test

[Velkyna (Joe)] Ah well.

[Brian] I am away from the keyboard.

[Joe] I am away from the keyboard.

[Joe] I am back at the keyboard.

Joe has left the game.

[Sedlack] I am back at the keyboard.

Joe has joined the game.

[Joe] Well, that was ass.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] ?

Joe is receiving the map...

Joe has received the map.

[Joe] Klooge died on me and I was having trouble connecting. I assume I was the only one?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Didn't die while I was gone.

[Master] weird.

[Master] Anyway

[Velkyna (Joe)] Bizzaro

[Master] I have two thoughts:

[Master] 1) I'm not sure it's hugely in character for your guys to do a random raid.

[Angie] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] 2) I'll give you some xp; I don't care to have entire adventures pass without any award.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] If I had realized that the Vizier didn't tell Arkady to ask the Oracle, I might have been more reluctant

[Master] OTOH, if you think it's in character, then I'll fire something up.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We had been discussion a non-random raid in order to get us some interrogation subjects.

[Master] Ah.

[Velkyna (Joe)] "discussing"

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Also, Aedean's got a "I just blew an hour off the Candle of Invocation" effect going on.

[Master] hehe

[Master] Okay, here's my thought:

[Master] We'll skip past it, say that people did stuff, and come back with l00t.

[Jeff] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] An overwhelming, swift victory isn't necessarily that exciting.

[Master] And I'll give you some XP for that.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I'm comfortable with that.

[Master] THen you can interrogate, which is more fun,

[Master] and we'll do the ceremony.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Request permission for 1300 xp, captain.

[Master] Request noted, ensign.

[Jared] I am back at the keyboard.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Anything greater than or equal to 357 XP would be acceptable.

[Roger (Jeff)] I want to blow shit up

[Velkyna (Joe)] Actually, the magic number is 1157

[Roger (Jeff)] Is that so wrong?

[Master] Not in the slightest, and I intend to give you a double-dose next session.

[Master] But I'm badly unprepared for a random raid, and I'm afraid it would take lots of time and suck.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Sucking sucks.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Understood.

[Lia (Angie)] OOC Let get on with the ceremony and plans for the nightflyer hunt

[Aedean (Sedlack)] 1157 = 13*89

[Velkyna (Joe)] Noted!

[Lia (Angie)] OOC sorry, I can't type today

[Master] hehe

[James] I am back at the keyboard.

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

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

[Master] The Party heads out and raides an orc encampment near the border, being careful to avoid an excessively long engagement.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] So much for that Mana Clash

[Velkyna (Joe)] Bo'

[Master] You slaughter a number of orcs, Abyssal Dire Coyotes, Ogre Magi, and a couple of Wyverns,

[Master] then fly away before the reinforcements arrive.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Score

[Velkyna (Joe)] W00t

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Who'd we capture?

[Velkyna (Joe)] We cut off ogre magi heads as well.

[Master] You are careful to capture a few orcs who appear to be officers (they're better dressed).

[Velkyna (Joe)] Sexcellente

[Master] And you take the ogre mage heads to give to folks constructing the death wards.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Did we get another religious amulet?

[Master] Lesser Scarabs of Protection, sorry.

[Master] Nope, you've already got a Gruumsh.

[Master] ;)

[Defthon (Don)] So, now what?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] How much XP?

[Master] How would you like to interrogate the orc?

[Master] (looks at info)

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I'll threaten to fireball him?

[Defthon (Don)] hee

[Roger (Jeff)] Good wizard/bad wizard

[Velkyna (Joe)] I tumble.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I can Subdue him first, so that he knows that I mean it.

[Master] 1500/9 =

[Arkady (James)] The zone of truth + indimidation worked ok last time.

[Arkady (James)] intimidation, that is.

[Master] 1444.4444444444

[Velkyna (Joe)] Fuck.

[Master] That's not right

[Defthon (Don)] 166.666

[Master] 166.66...

[Master] there we go

[Master] brain, brain, where is my brain

[Defthon (Don)] Same place it is every day.

[Arkady (James)] Mmmmmuuuuuuhhhh, brains.

[Master] Somewhere over New Hampshire; got it.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] What do we want?

[Master] BRAINS

[Defthon (Don)] Brain@

[Defthon (Don)] s!

[Shottamip (Tamora)] When do we want them?

[Master] BRAINS

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I feel like Achilles trying to catch the turtle

[Defthon (Don)] Brains!

[Master] What would you like to ask the orcs?

[Master] And how would you like to ask them?

[Arkady (James)] Do they know of any bigger camps?

[Velkyna (Joe)] We'd like to ask where another 1000 XP might be located.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Could we please have another 190 XP?

[Arkady (James)] Have they been asked to guard certain regions?

[Master] In a bit, children.

[Lia (Angie)] Do they know about the nightflyer?

[Defthon (Don)] How and from where do their supplies come?

[Arkady (James)] Where were they supposed to attack next?

[Velkyna (Joe)] NOT SOON ENOUGH

[Master] Arkady: They have some generaly intelligence.

[Master] Their supplies are sent with them by their clans when they leave to come fight.

[Master] After those supplies run out, they generally subsist through hunting/gathering and raiding,

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Orcish care packages

[Velkyna (Joe)] Which look uncomfortably like orcish land mines.

[Master] supplemented by occasional visits from higher-ups, who pass out stuff then disappear.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] To reassure them that not everyone at home is protesting the war.

[Dralafi (Jared)] hey, I think I just got the last five minutes of coversation all at once. no wonder it looked like no one was talking.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] MAIL CALL!

[Master] hehe

[Master] Did I miss a question?

[Master] Ah, the nightwing.

[Master] They don't know anything.

[Master] A lot of these guys operate in combined machismo/horrified fear mode.

[Arkady (James)] Hmph, if we can destroy their existing supplies, then they won't be able to attack as much.

[Master] They act all badass and are real sadists,

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Who do they report to ? (What's the chain of command like?)

[Master] but they're absolutely terrified of the Triumvirate.

[Master] The officers have superior officers and whatnot, but the commands tend to be quite general,

[Arkady (James)] Is the Triumvirate holding their families hostage or something?

[Master] i.e. "go raid today," or "don't do anything," or "move five miles west and hold the hill."

[Master] It seems like most of the army is a shifting mass of tribal warriorsk

[Master] backed up by a few really stiff units.

[Defthon (Don)] So, Afghanistan.

[Master] James, it's much simpler.

[Master] They are all playing, "Who wants to be a bodak?"

[Master] Where if you win, you lose.

[Arkady (James)] Ah.

[Arkady (James)] Do they know where the elite units are stationed?

[Master] They are absolutely terrified of the bodaks and high leadership.

[Master] Nope. And that's very much on purpose.

[Defthon (Don)] OOC: Did we ever get Brian back after the break?

[Arkady (James)] Are these elite units bodaks, or orcs, ogre magi or something like that?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Not yet.

[Master] Brian said he'd be delayed.

[Defthon (Don)] ah, ok.

[Master] The elite units tend to be things like bodaks in charge of athaches, high-level clerics with barbie bodyguards, et cetera.

[Dralafi (Jared)] OOC: hey, in the new rules we can cast GMW on Arics immense knuckles. can we use them for that? :)

[Master] There are also Ogre Mage warbands, but they tend to be equally terrified of the higher-ups.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] i.e. Elite units = that encounter we had a couple sessions back

[Master] OOC: Maybe.

[Master] Something like that.

[Arkady (James)] How do they call out for reinforcements? How do they dial 911?

[Arkady (James)] Runners or something like that seems too slow.

[Master] It depends.

[Master] There's a moderately complicated flare system you saw in use.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I don't suppose they know of a larger enclave? Maybe a minor fortress or something. The goal being to get a target higher up the food chain to raid, and maybe _they'd_ know something about the Triumvirate.

[Master] (when you raided)

[Master] There isn't anything bigger, precisely, only more full of high-level chars.

[Master] Things move around a lot, and that's on purpose.

[Arkady (James)] Can we get the details of this flare system from they guys we've got?

[Master] It's as though there's someone who just keeps this enormous order of battle in his head.

[Master] Yes.

[Master] From now on, I'll translate.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Obviously, collapsing Erdun was good strategy on the part of the orcs

[Master] Yeah, it looks like they're really not structured to do positional warfare or fortify much.

[Master] It's all about attacking or counterattacking.

[Arkady (James)] Obviously, we'll need to question all the prisoners separately, to make sure we're getting correct data.

[Master] This is the condensed version after significant effort.

[Lia (Angie)] Reader's Digest

[Defthon (Don)] No, Raider's Digest.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] heh

[Master] This is part of why the orcs are so okay with insane losses.

[Master] There's little command structure lost, and supply is always an issue anyway.

[Velkyna (Joe)] That destruction machine would've taken a bite out of them.

[Lia (Angie)] More where they came from?

[Arkady (James)] Do they have anything like artillery, where they can call down the 'boom'?

[Master] The orcish wastes are quite vast.

[Master] They tend to rely on their clerics, rather than siegecraft.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Elves don't have any walls anyway.

[Master] Not so much, no.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Ogre magi + Bodaks = artillery

[Master] But castles are really only useful until one gets into the serious badasses. Once that happens, they can knock stuff over with disturbing ease.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Athach vs. Wall

[Master] Place your bets now.

[Arkady (James)] The wall is the sucker's bet, I think. :-)

[Master] You glean some information on recent troop movements and suchlike, but these guys are very deliberately kept in the dark and thrown to the wolves.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Depends on the wall.

[Dralafi (Jared)] depends on the odds hes giving

[Defthon (Don)] Will the wall get knocked down in A) 0-30 seconds, B) 31-60 seconds, C) 61-90 seconds, or D) 91-120 seconds?

[Master] E) Depends on how much pie is on the other side.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Okay. Doesn't sound like we'll get too much more out of these guys.

[Velkyna (Joe)] F) and what kind of pie.

[Dralafi (Jared)] mmm. chicken cake.

[Master] lol

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Perhaps there is a bakery somewhere making more delicious pies.

Sedlack has left the game.

[Defthon (Don)] or not.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Dry humor brings DAS BOOT

Sedlack has joined the game.

[Master] Klooge does not like the idea of more delicious pies.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] *sigh*

[Master] Any other q's?

[Lia (Angie)] I'm out

[Arkady (James)] I have no idea what to do now.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Scry: (d20+2) [9+2] 11

[Velkyna (Joe)] what food u got

[Master] er.

[Master] Let's do the welcome ceremony.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Let's.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Does it involve XP?

[Arkady (James)] ok

[Aedean (Sedlack)] What do we do with the captives?

[Defthon (Don)] oh yeah!

[Lia (Angie)] Orc mulch

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Isn't that a bit...coldblooded?

[Lia (Angie)] It;s practical

[Arkady (James)] Orcs (who haven't been housebroken like Aric) don't make good pets.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Let's let the elves decide what to do with them.

[Arkady (James)] That's fine w/ me.

[Lia (Angie)] OK

[Aedean (Sedlack)] hat would be okay, I guess

[Roger (Jeff)] sure

[Master] The elves keep them for further questioning.

[Velkyna (Joe)] brb

[Joe] I am away from the keyboard.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Goodo them.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Good luck to them.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] I wanna rock 'n' roll all night

[Master] almost ready

[Aedean (Sedlack)] And party every day

[Master] The ceremony takes place in the Gloaming; there are lights glowing at a bit over head-level.

[Master] It's a very relaxing and fun effect.

[Joe] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] Ivellian and Nailo introduce you one at a time.

[Master] You are called, at various points, Dessit's Saviors and the Companions of the Chosen Ones.

[Master] (Those of you who do not speak Elvish get a running translation from Praxis, along with commentary.)

[Master] Arkady, bard among bards

[Arkady (James)] Heh.

[Master] Roger Leafbower, seeker of knowledge

[Master] Velkyna Dragonslayer

Roger (Jeff) waves enthusiastically

[Master] Defthon, Tsohanoaivaar

[Master] Lia, Soliusvaar

[Master] Aedean, servant of Olidimarra

[Master] Shottamip Thistle, Gnome Sorceress

[Master] (there is some murmuring at this. Evidently there hasn't been a gnome here for some time)

Sedlack has left the game.

Sedlack has joined the game.

[Velkyna (Joe)] The news of a gnome was apparently quite stunning for Sedlack's computer as well.

[Master] Aric, bearer of the Vestments of Charis.

[Master] Dralafi of the Bow

[Laucian Nailo] You are welcome here, friends of elvenkind.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Aric, king of pants

[Brian] I am back at the keyboard.

[Defthon (Don)] nice timing!

[Elves] *cheering*

[Aric (Brian)] keep talking, it'll take my pants and i a few minutes to catch up

[Master] Laucian begins to speak in a chanting cadence.

[Velkyna (Joe)] MAGIC pants.

[Master] The following is a rough translation.


[Laucian Nailo] Favored by the Gods was Celenor

[Laucian Nailo] Strong of arm and of mind

[Laucian Nailo] Of elven mother and human father

[Laucian Nailo] Cursed by the Gods was Celenor.

[Laucian Nailo] Celenor, Friend of Dragons

[Laucian Nailo] Took Im'vaar as his lover

[Laucian Nailo] Im'vaar, ancient emerald

[Laucian Nailo] Took Celenor as her lover.

[Laucian Nailo]

[Laucian Nailo] Celenor held onto life lightly

[Laucian Nailo] His laugh echoed across the lands

[Laucian Nailo] Im'vaar held onto Celenor tightly

[Laucian Nailo] Covetous and kind.

[Laucian Nailo] Sarumag, great red dragon

[Laucian Nailo] Sought Im'vaar's horde for his own

[Laucian Nailo] Waited until Celenor travelled

[Laucian Nailo] To catch Im'vaar alone.

[Laucian Nailo]

[Velkyna (Joe)] This song needs a cowbell.

[Laucian Nailo] Three days and nights their battle raged

[Laucian Nailo] From mount to cave to air to forest

[Laucian Nailo] Scales fell like rain.

[Laucian Nailo] Celenor returned to Im'vaar's lair

[Laucian Nailo] With gifts and stories for his love

[Laucian Nailo] Returned to find her missing

[Laucian Nailo] Returned to find her missing.

[Laucian Nailo]

[Laucian Nailo] Celenor searched and found her

[Laucian Nailo] Locked in mortal embrace

[Dralafi (Jared)] more cowbells?

[Laucian Nailo] Sarumag had done what Celenor could not

[Laucian Nailo] Extended Celenor's life beyond Im'vaar's.

[Laucian Nailo] Mad with grief, Celenor skinned Sarumag

[Laucian Nailo] Created vestment of dragonskin

[Laucian Nailo] But when he completed his grisly task,

[Laucian Nailo] He could not wear what he had wrought.

[Laucian Nailo]

[Laucian Nailo] Turned he then to Im'vaar,

[Laucian Nailo] And as though he dressed her body

[Laucian Nailo] for burial, took from her a token

[Laucian Nailo] Her emeralds for him to wear.

Laucian Nailo pauses

Laucian Nailo turns and reveals a suit of shimmering emerald-colored plate mail

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

[Laucian Nailo] Lia Soliusvaar.

[Laucian Nailo] Chosen one of friendly gods, take this token of our hope.

[Laucian Nailo] May it serve you in battle.

Lia (Angie) bows

Laucian Nailo turns and reveals what appears to be a chain shirt made of red dragonscale

[Laucian Nailo] Defthon Tsohanoaivaar

[Velkyna (Joe)] !!!

Defthon (Don) steps forward

[Laucian Nailo] Chosen one of friendly gods, take this token of our hope

[Laucian Nailo] May it serve you in battle.

Defthon (Don) accepts the gift and bows

[Ivellian] My friends, welcome to the elven lands!

[Dralafi (Jared)] ooc: wait, they get cool swords _and_ cool armor? I feel so left out.

[Elves] *wild cheering*

Arkady (James) bows deeply.

[Velkyna (Joe)] ooc: yeah, but they're the DM's little bitches.

[Arkady (James)] ... plot devices.

[Velkyna (Joe)] ooc: that's a dear price to pay. ;)

[Elves] Emerald Dragon Plate Mail +4 plate mail -40% of weight Immunity: Dragonfear +4 saves against fear effects Acts as Medium Armor for movement, other calculations

[Dralafi (Jared)] ooc: says the guy toting like 100k in magic items :)

[Master] That didn't come out right.

[Master] The emerald dragon mail is +4 plate mail, -40% weight,

[Master] it gives Immunity: Dragonfear and +4 saves against fear effects.

[Velkyna (Joe)] ooc: Mmmm, deck of many things.

[Master] It acts as Medium Armor for movement and other calculations et cetera

[Master] The Red Dragon Chain Shirt is similar.

Elves wander off to hearth and home

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Does the RDCS help against fire?

[Velkyna (Joe)] The two of you look like Christmas.

[Elves] Nope, no fire help.

[Velkyna (Joe)] "You don't have to go home but you can't stay here."

[Master] hehe

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Strange.

[Defthon (Don)] Hey look! Elves is alive!

[Master] ok

[Master] No fire help.

[Dralafi (Jared)] half the glen goes dark. The nothing has eaten them.

[Master] lol

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Elves has left the building.

[Velkyna (Joe)] They were eaten by a grue.

[Arkady (James)] The nightflyer is here! Attack!

[Ivellian] So, soon we will destroy the nightflyer.

[Defthon (Don)] I attack the darkness!

[Lia (Angie)] ooc: so what does this mean for my dex?

[Ivellian] Have you given thought to what comes next?

[Defthon (Don)] OOC you guys give me more cool shit?

[Lia (Angie)] We must deal with the nightflyer

[Master] ooc: Let met hink about it.

[Defthon (Don)] :)

[Arkady (James)] We need to draw out the nightflyer, to an area of our choosing.

[Ivellian] And I am sure that you will.

[Ivellian] But after that, we have an . . . unconventional plan.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I think he means what comes next after the nightflying.

[Arkady (James)] Control the territory. All that Sun Tzu shit.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] More unconventional than the last one?

Ivellian smiles

[Dralafi (Jared)] ooc: does it involve self-replicating automata?

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yeah, you guys are going to be praying for the artifact of destruction now.

[Ivellian] The orcs import weaponry and food from the human lands.

[Ivellian] As well as hire mercenaries to maintain order.

[Lia (Angie)] ooc: does this mean I can trade in the old armor?

[Master] ooc: Yep.

[Ivellian] In addition, we have every reason to think that we might be able to hire mercenaries of our own,

[Ivellian] or perhaps even ally with some border kingdoms.

[Velkyna (Joe)] We need ourselves a Gettysburg.

[Ivellian] We are not wise in the ways of human thought; none of us has dared travel to these kingdoms,

[Arkady (James)] Who's got the stones to stand up to the Triumveriate, besides the Duke.

[Ivellian] for fear of being horribly wrong.

Ivellian shrugs

[Ivellian] I am not certain that the Triumverate's rule is strong in the northern lands.

[Lia (Angie)] It wil shortly be a choice of stand up or get walked on

[Ivellian] They extract young men and food as tribute, but do not campaign against the human settlements.

[Ivellian] I beleive that you are uniquely qualified to act as our emissaries,

[Lia (Angie)] Not yet

[Ivellian] to establish routes of trade and diplomacy,

[Ivellian] to cut their lines of supply and information,

[Arkady (James)] That sounds like a plan.

[Ivellian] and to, perhaps, give us access to human mercenaries and armies.

Laucian Nailo nods

[Arkady (James)] We will explain to the kingdoms their already precarious situation.

[Laucian Nailo] I have created a list of kingdoms and the order in which I believe you will be best served in visiting them.

[Velkyna (Joe)] 1) Estin

[Laucian Nailo] You will first go to Czina, which I believe you have visited once, if briefly.

[Arkady (James)] That place was a mess, the last time... revolution or some such.

[Laucian Nailo] It is merely a free city, but it serves as a port and source of information.

[Laucian Nailo] That has passed, from what we understand.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Chaos can be manipulated to one's advantage, if one is clever enough.

Laucian Nailo nods to Aedean.

[Laucian Nailo] Indeed.

[Aric (Brian)] hey, maybe another pirate will try to take our stuff

[Laucian Nailo] From there, you can work westward, destroying the orcs' allies and creating alliances of our own.

[Velkyna (Joe)] ARRRR

[Shottamip (Tamora)] OOC: My number of fireballs only increases with time!

[Aedean (Sedlack)] ooc: Can he counter a Flame Strike? I think not!

[Shottamip (Tamora)] OOC: Give me another year on this continent and I bet I can beat a whole wand of 'em.

[Laucian Nailo] Then it is settled.

[Laucian Nailo] Tomorrow, you hunt nightfliers.

[Laucian Nailo] Afterward, you hunt amity.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] (plural??)

[Arkady (James)] There's more than one nighflyer?

[Master] (probably just an expression)

[Aedean (Sedlack)] "reinforcements"

[Aric (Brian)] OOC And then we kick amity's ass!

[Dralafi (Jared)] ooc: I'm not going after the amityville horror. that shit's fucked up.

[Master] But the nightflier will certainly have . . . friends.

[Arkady (James)] Eh, it's just a house. Nuke it from orbit.

[Defthon (Don)] lovely.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] ooc: I saw A.H. IV. I think we could take the possessed lamp.

[Roger (Jeff)] It's the only way to be sure

[Dralafi (Jared)] ooc: we're out of nukes. and orbital transports.

[Arkady (James)] Get Bishop to go to the uplink antenna, and call down another dropship.

[Dralafi (Jared)] ooc: yeah! bishop should do it!

[Master] Everyone, please accept 500 XP.

[Arkady (James)] Great idea!

[Master] For being good sports.

[Velkyna (Joe)] GOD DAMMIT

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Score!

[Master] How close are you, Joe?

[Lia (Angie)] Hanks

[Velkyna (Joe)] Like 500 more.

[Master] Nah, too much.

[Velkyna (Joe)] GOD DAMMIT

[Master] You'll get it after the first encounter early tomorrow, I promise.

[Master] hehe

[Velkyna (Joe)] Yeah, but that's way over there.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] Decide what you'll want and be ready to upgrade. :)

[Aric (Brian)] can i have 8377 XP more?

[Master] If you want to use the Vizier card, I'll spill my guts about the NIghtflyer and its reinforcements.

[Master] Brian: No.


[Roger (Jeff)] So how much did wd get this session, 666 XP?

[Master] If you don't, then you'll have lots of fun.

[Dralafi (Jared)] 667!

[Master] Yeah, it was a light sesssion.

[Master] Next one will be heavy.

[Master] :)

[Master] Ok everyone please send me info on free weekends in August.

[Aric (Brian)] is this the end, or are we still doing stuff?

[Master] And what else can I do for you?

[Master] Yeah, we're in post-mortem now.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm busy next weekend (2nd) and two weekends after (16th). Free otherwise.

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Here we go:

[Master] email pls

[Velkyna (Joe)] Oh, busy August 30th.

[Aric (Brian)] ok. here's a big request, don't worry if it can't be accomodated...i'm wondering who would be willing to put the next one off until early september

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Roll #1: (d8) [7] 7

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Score!

[Master] nice roll, stud

[Aric (Brian)] i'm moving, and will need the weekends

[Master] I'd prefer not to, just because I want to get one in before school starts.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'll put it off until September if I get 500 xp now.

[Velkyna (Joe)] I'm seriously blueballed here, man.

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Attack 1: Ki Strike hits AC: ((d20+12)) [(3+12)] 15

[Master] I don't like your odds.

[Master] Sorry, man. Things moved slower than I expected.

[Shottamip (Tamora)] I don't want to wait because I have no one else to game with in between.

[Master] There will be much love next session, I promise.

[Defthon (Don)] Ok, definitely no earlier than the 23rd.

[Lia (Angie)] I'm free after the 3rd

[Aric (Brian)] cna't do it the 23rd

[Roger (Jeff)] It looks like all my wkends are free

[Aric (Brian)] 24th would probably be doable

[Master] hehe

[Dralafi (Jared)] Im free any weekend AFAIK

[Aric (Brian)] but that's another sunday

[Master] Let me know when you've got NWN, Jeff. Then get on Yahoo, so you know when I'm around.

[Master] Let the lurve begin. :)

[Roger (Jeff)] "Real Soon Now"

[Aric (Brian)] Aric: Damage 3: Ki Strike does ((1d10+5)) [(3+5)] 8 points of damage.

[Dralafi (Jared)] it looks liek we've already eliminated every saturday in august :)

[Master] Send me emails; I'll try to do what I can.

[Tamora] Shottamip: Gather Information: (d20+8) [10+8] 18

[Master] There are 10 of us; it's going to be a challenge no matter what.

[Roger (Jeff)] Oh, wait, August 2!

[Master] That's 1 week, man.

[Master] Ok I'll do it.

[Master] hehe

[Lia (Angie)] I'll be gone next weekend

[Master] Ok

[Master] SEnd me emails, but I'm looking hard at the 23rd/24th

[Master] and if I have to get up at 5 am to get all of my encounters in, I'll make that sacrifice.

[Tamora] guh.

[Aric (Brian)] 23rd is pretty much out for me

[Master] Don't worry; you can get up at 5:30. ;)

[Tamora] i guess.

[Defthon (Don)] Between thesis and packing and moving, no earlier than the 23rd for me.

[Velkyna (Joe)] Emailed already.

[Master] thanks.

[Defthon (Don)] I'll email full details.

[Master] Since I'm getting subplots rolling for most of the chars, attendance becomes an issue.

[Master] Now, if only I could figure out what to do with Roger . . . ;)

[Master] ANyway, thanks for stuff.

[Master] Any question I can answer?

[Aedean (Sedlack)] Aedean: Attack 1: Mace of Disruption +1 [1] hits AC: ((d20+6+1+1)) [(3+6+1+1)] 11

[Aric (Brian)] there is a magic pile of leaves

[Aric (Brian)] that needs blowing

[James] Roger will get into trouble on his own.

[Lia (Angie)] dex with new armor?

[Master] Right.

[James] As will Praxis, no doubt.

[Master] Okay, lemme look some stuff up

[Roger (Jeff)] Once Roger gains a level it's Hands Across Serendair time

[Aric (Brian)] you know, when looking at the klooge overview map, we're arranged like a big smiley face

[James] ???

[Lia (Angie)] You can email me with the answer

[Master] It's just like Mithral

[Master] Max Dex bonus is upped by 2.

[Roger (Jeff)] ahaha
