plot to your heart's content...


Dotting


...Plotting in progress, please wait ...

*Evil plot 75% complete


I suggest using spoilers for Telepathy.


Good thinking


Hmm - any evil masterplan will likely have to wait until Blep know why he has been summoned. I'm going to take the opportunity to ask a few questions instead : )

Regarding Infernal Bargain do I have to have the material components of the spell, or is the performance in itself sufficient? And do I actually 'need' to pay, since the bargain uses an opposed charisma check to convince the outsider to do my bidding (like Planar Binding, the wizard spell) or could I just use the payment as additional leverage if I conjure something more impressive? (for example, I could see offering goods and such if one were to try and summon a Glabrezu - but not if I am summoning an Imp, who I could intimidate or bluff into doing my bidding)

you don't need the material components for the spell but you do need to pay for the services of the summoned creature from what i can tell


Okay - if I don't want them to do anything, just summon them I assume there would be no cost?


Male Mindflayer Psychic Warrior 3/Phrenic Slayer 3

Hey guys, I know I am all sorts of late, but my work week got a little messed up, so I was unable to finish up Yzx. If I am still able to join(hope so) I can finish him up today, though he is pretty much done stat wise.

Blepxeblopty- yup no cost for just summoning them to the plane
Yzxcilplix- yea you can still join, just finish him up and post in the game


Nice - it's good to know that I have an emergency food supply then =)


Male Human Student 1

From Recruitment:
Just curious, is recruiting still open? If it is, I would love to play a monk/Illithid Savant. (or just a monk if you don't like the savant)

Basic idea, *(as yet unnamed) wishes to perfect himself, and that is all thank you, unless you have a interesting brain to sell. For an illithid this is a perfectly worthy pursuit, and * seems different only in caring more a bit more about brains and less about trinkets than is usual. But * has a deep and terrible secret: he wants the sun back! In his youth, he had the the good fortune of finding a nymph for sale, and promptly bought her. What wonders would this rare creature's brain contain? Always a inquisitive and impressionable soul, * partook with abandon and felt... a longing for the sun, and for green growing things, and... what IS this madness?! And so began *'s decent into something that is not quite madness, but not quite sanity either. You see, once that door was opened, it couldn't be readily shut, and bits of the creatures *'s consumed have become a part of him, leaving him a rather confused individual.

Does he really want to beat his chest and participate in a wild orgy? No, no, that must be yesterday's orc snack. Why do I know the birthday of a human female child? Oh yes, I ate her mother a while ago, best not eat the child then, last time it led to a ferocious headache. (A bit like Echo from Dollhouse, if you've seen it. I'm fascinated by the idea of what would happen if you really could take pieces of another creature's mind and make them a part of you. Could you really gain a creature's perform skill without feel that creature's love of music? The bardic knowledge also provides a good explanation/rationale for a character acting odd. Who knows what little bits are bubbling to the surface?)

Lloyd i guess if you are quick you could still make the game, post him here and we'll check if its good


I'm going for vacation for two weeks and I'm not sure if I can get to the internet then. Just in case, I'll wish you a happy new year (and merry christmas, if you celebrated it :)). Feel free to NPC my char meanwhile :)


I'm gonna be off and on today, as it's my birthday, and stuff is probably going to go on here.


I didn't realize, but I never got my extracts together. Do you want me to assume I didn't have any prepared, or come up with a standard list?

Dark Archive

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Also, would you consider Master Chymist being accessible with sneak attack replacing bombs in the pre-requisites and advancement, provided we level enough for me to qualify?

i suppose that'd be fine


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

C'mon, ya know ya want to


Hemaphrodite? Illithid Wiz5\Bloat mage 1

I'm at a bit of a loss as to what to do. I suspect the others are too based on the limited responses. DM, can you perhaps point us in the right direction.

Dark Archive

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

well you can fight that thing, its just really hard, or you can out run it, it only has movement 15ft


Hemaphrodite? Illithid Wiz5\Bloat mage 1

I can damage it with eldrich blasts, but I may have to blow all my spells to make a dent.


Hemaphrodite? Illithid Wiz5\Bloat mage 1

Who wants to lead?


Male Mindflayer Psychic Warrior 3/Phrenic Slayer 3

Tbh, I'd be ok with Myron leading. Normally, I try to at least be a leader-esque character, but I'm not really playing Yzx that way. At least so far.


Myron's fine, I suppose. Xal is nowhere near the "leader" type.


M Mind Flayer 6 Inquisitor of Vecna

Vecthan is more a loner(running from trouble as he is), he wouldn't be the leader. I'm fine with who ever folks would want.

Dark Archive

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

right, i guess Myron will be the leader then...
