The drow begin to move, they march to reclaim the lost city. Their agents sent forth to impose their will and shape the lands abandoned long ago.

Yeah they would have a general idea or at least the person making the checks would.


Updated sheet with poisoned shuriken


Plan or going somewhere?

Let me know when your ready and your planned actions.


@Elrivor

I dont get what you said in your OOC line. Is that directed at me, if so could you be a little more clear with the meaning.


M Drow Noble Magus 7

Sorry that I wasn't very clear. If we follow the rough route that I flew and I came to an area where I saw one of the monsters or groups of monsters, I could possibly warn the group as we travel towards the building with the spirit in it.


M Drow Noble Synthasist Summoner 7

Guys, how stealthy are we going to be on the way to the building? Do you want me in elf mode or spider mode?


The route you took was a line. It goes thru tree area and buildings. You can take that route but it will slow you down and involve terrain problems sense your not making use of the roads. Also monsters dont stay put, anything you saw may be no where near there a few minutes later.


M Drow Noble Synthasist Summoner 7

And in light of that, remember that as the spider I can fly.


Oh I just had the image of a flying multi armed monster. It didn't end well. xD


M Drow Noble Magus 7

That's pretty much in line with what I stated in my response to the others, it was more for a "oh and I saw a Chimera here earlier." and "over there was the Rune Giant going to the bathroom, stay away from that ditch!" or in case we happened to be in an area that was the lair of one of the creatures.
Anyways we should just proceed once Elbennon figures out his Ability damage.


Let me know when you guys are ready and any plans your going to take while traveling. Also if your going to take the roads or a direct line to the area.


10 Board Lurker/10 Nice Guy/

If the monsters are on the roads I don't want to go that way. They might not care if we look like elves or drow, unless some of the them are "drow friendly" or at least might give us a chance to speak first.

Do any of you have the "Sending" spell? IIRC it lets you talk from a safe distance.


I'm ready, I'd say avoid the roads. Gives us more places to hide.


M Drow Noble Magus 7

No sending here. What about the message spell? I don't have access to the SRD so I am not sure if it is on my list.


::points to your insignia's::

If you forgot their powers are listed in the campaign info page.


male Drow Noble Inquisitor 7

So we can send messages to the monsters if we wish to try, but they can't talk to us in return. It is also once per day.

Message works at a safe distance, but we would have to get scrolls of it. Talking to the monsters is not my first idea. Taking out that spirit or giving that perception might make us seem more powerful than we are and make them think twice about any betrayal if we talk to them later.


Let me explain the insignia again.

The message spell is limited to PCs, it cant be used on anyone else or for anything else. Its the magic version of private walkie talkies for you guys so you can work as a team without needing to be right next to each other or in visual range. Whispering wind works once a day which I put there so you can call for back up when you take over a place, you can still use it anyway you want just letting you know why I put it there. The last spell we all know what its for. ;)

Any area you clear will not remain free for long. It will be claimed by monsters or the elves without anyone to hold it. Nothing in the city is unclaimed, thats important to remember. Hope that clears things up a little, good luck. >:P


male Drow Noble Inquisitor 7

I understand how the message works. That is why I am suggesting scrolls. :)

I never intended to use it(insignia version) to talk to the monsters. The whispering wind spell does not allow two way communication.

Right now we have to deal with two groups of potential enemies. I intend to make one of those groups our allies. Well actually I intend to make both of them our allies until we can take both of them out or get them to take each other out, but I am not keen on walking up on the monsters and hoping I am not attacked on sight. The message spell allows for negotiation from a distance.

PS:I might have to look up some rules to make sure this works like I want it to.


Not to rain on your parade but you cant talk to all monsters. Some dont have the ability to speak so you cant really deal with them now can you. I mean how much can a black pudding or giant vermin say you know. xP


M Drow Noble Synthasist Summoner 7

You just eat a black pudding.


M Drow Noble Magus 7

Good Lancashire black pudding is very yummy...

I will cast awaken black pudding. :)


M Drow Noble Synthasist Summoner 7

I am having Yorkshire pudding tomorrow.


Is it made from blood?


M Drow Noble Synthasist Summoner 7

No, that is black pudding.


In case it was unclear the action between Yasaen and the spider creature was a surprise round. Yasaen won the init so he went first. Round 1 every can take a turn (Yasaen too), you guys won the init.


M Drow Noble Synthasist Summoner 7

You can move when entangled unless you are anchored. You take penalties on things and can only move half speed.


male Drow Noble Inquisitor 7

Knowledge is power. Don't forget to roll knowledge checks. :)

Do any of you have align weapon?


M Drow Noble Synthasist Summoner 7

He still should have been to far away. You said we as a group were 45 ft. away from it. Elbenenn said we would five foot step only if it put him within 30 ft. Even with a 15ft. reach, it would have to move more than a 5ft. step to reach and would not get a full attack.


The monster has a 40 ft. base speed and 15 ft. reach. Anything in 55 ft. is with in range of its attacks. The same rules that let Brang'el have 4 attacks let the monster have 3. They are all primary attacks, none of them are secondary so it does not need a full attack action to use them.

We have already gone over this before when I asked Brang'el about how he had 4 primary claw attacks.


male Drow Noble Inquisitor 7

DM Irthos unless he has pounce he only gets one attack on a standard action. That goes for any monster with natural attack barring a special ability. IIRC the bebelith does not have pounce. There is nothing in the rules saying you can use all of you primary attacks with a standard action.

An attack action which is one attack can be made with a standard action.

Quote:
Multiple Attacks: A character who can make more than one attack per round must use the full-attack action (see Full-Round Actions) in order to get more than one attack.

Note that it says multiple attacks, not multiple iterative attacks which is what BAB based characters work under. By not calling out iterative attacks it applies to any situation where more than one attack is in play.

PS:Special exceptions such as pounce always means YMMV.

edit:If Brangel is moving and making 4 attacks without pounce then he is also wrong.


M Drow Noble Synthasist Summoner 7

I agree with all of the above. If I moved more than five feet and attacked, I was wrong. You must have pounce in order to use more than one natural attack after moving.


-.-

Well I will give Elbennon a day to respond, in which case I will recon the attack which if I am not mistaken will leave him with 3 hp counting the Con damage.

I will post a recruitment thread tomarrow regardless, I think we need more players. To fill out the ranks.


I have posted a Recruitment thread. So we can fill out our ranks a bit. Ideally getting a full healer and tank for the group.


10 Board Lurker/10 Nice Guy/

I had internet issues after my last post. If anyone is in my other PBP's feel free to spread the word.


male Drow Noble Inquisitor 7

There are only 4 of us? Why do I keep thinking there are 5? A cleric would be nice. :)


Well we got some bites on the thread. Still no healers but got a few fighters and a wizard. Will keep you updated.


male Drow Noble Inquisitor 7

I am fine with the synthesis filling the tank/damager role unless you or Brang'el thinks it is not a good idea. As for a cleric you might have to mention that certain classes get special consideration.


M Drow Noble Synthasist Summoner 7

I find nothing soaks up damage quite as easily as a synthasist. They are good at damage, but have a few issues with DR.


Yeah I may mention that healer's will get consideration. Mostly I am trying to get you guys some front liner's who can take a beating. Brang'el I dont know how tough he is because sadly he has yet to get in on the action, the dice liked you when I rolled for a random target to hit with web. xP

Edit-Well that was a nice surprise, our former PC Elbennon just posted how brutal my encounter's are on the thread. If I am the only one that considers that a bit insulting by all means let me know. -.-


Btw do you guys want to move on with the encounter or you retreating?


M Drow Noble Synthasist Summoner 7

I say kill it. If Elbennen is dead, we want to loot his stuff anyway.


M Drow Noble Magus 7

I have been waiting for the others to post their turn...mine was to Mirror Image myself.


M Drow Noble Synthasist Summoner 7

In that case, I am not sure if I have already acted this round.


It's your guys turn. Elrivor you used mirror image last turn in Round 1. It is now Round 2.


M Drow Noble Synthasist Summoner 7

given that it moved toward Ebennen, how far is it from each of us.


I would say sense he was up front a bit, the thing is 25 ft. from Brang'el sense he is the only one that moved forward. So 40 ft. from everyone who has not moved.

I was about to post the same thing earlier, however I forgot, but not as an insult. You run games similar to the way I run my games, and I know they are not for everyone. Some players love being at the brink of death at times. Others however don't enjoy it, and find "reasons" to not return to my games. I think letting them know up front can help make sure they don't quit, since they won't join if they know the GM will not be holding back on them.


male Drow Noble Inquisitor 7

I have never opened up game with a boss level fight before. I think it threw him for a loop, but after the first game I was not surprised.

I don't even want to send Monty in against that thing, in or out of character. Is anyone already in melee with it? I did not see anyone do so other than the ninja, but I am making sure. Once I know that I will post my actions.

PS:I say we try to kill the Bebelith.


No one is in melee with it right now.
