Greg as your active on the thread, can I get your input on favored terrains? Posed it on the previous page.

No real horse in the race. Jerin going in makes far more sense to me though. Not to mention the rules around dealing damage to a creature inside its stomach are murky. Anything other than dealing damage to escape being swallowed is basically a house rule.
We are flooding the IC with pure OOC chat though, untagged as OOC too. It really irks me, doesn't bother anyone else? If its just me i'll learn to deal with it :).
You are 40 feet away, as of last update/map update. I haven't updated to your initiative (or anyone's) yet this round. After your declared round 4 actions, you will be 20 feet closer, for 20 feet away from the position I mentioned SE of Kiri.
You were 40 feet away at the start of the round. I haven't even had time to check the IC yet.
Re: Climbing and the Hound question, with 40 feet movement climbing at quarter speed for two move actions, they can actually reach the top (but not climb up) in a single round. The undead are being a bit more tactical by climbing 15 feet in one round then surging up onto the roof the next. Narration didn't match the notes on my end but the undead that was decapitated by the hound had climbed the full 20.
Re: Life Link. I see this as something you as the players, and Telurion, need to remember (which also means keeping up to date HP fully visible). Durin and Arachiel should have healed 5 damage at the start of their turns, with Telurion taking 10 damage as a result.
Just chirping in to say i'm reading everything. Can understand the IC (and OOC) apprehension about the level of difficulty, but can also understand the potential Chosen One Trope being perceived to different degrees. People have varying ideas of the comparative power of 1st level characters. I, for example, tend to treat even a single level of a PC class as something quite rare. I despair at Paizo's utter overuse of PC levels on NPC's and try to make extensive use of Warrior and Adept classes. Theres no right or wrong answer to this one, to my mind. Its just different perceptions and expectations.
I'm not really sure how this got out of hand so quickly. Sorry if I had any contribution. I think you all know I loathe being involved in group conflict and i've walked away from a couple of games due to it (most recently, a WoTW game where a new player brought in a character that repeatedly antagonised and tried to belittle my character while simultaneously being upset with me OOC when he gave as good as he got). There is an implicit social contract to a PbP for me so that I generally try and be flexible to accommodate everybody.
It seems to me this current delve isn't going to work out. I've been asked to try and mediate a little, so I have been thinking how to proceed. My only proposal to continue would be that we hand waive the following two steps, in chronological order-
1. The Professor and those who were still willing to delve further tried, and failed, to pass every test. They met with partial success on one but were repulsed by the power of the place. However, the Professor did find enough fragments of Ancient Osiriani to confirm what he sought was not in this place, and put a few clues together as to his next destination- Wati.
2. With a destination in mind, the Professor recruits the capable individuals he met into an equal shares contract of the spoils.
It doesn't fix the inter-party difficulties we're having though. From an entirely neutral standpoint, i'm not certain having two pro-Pharasmites is ever going to work out when we're essentially tomb exploring/robbing. I also think, to an extent, some posts have come across as over-bearing when the intent was merely to keep "pushing" the game; keeping momentum up and expressing interest.

So, i'm going to be pitching a Halfling Cavalier (Honour Guard) with the Helpful race trait. Part bodyguard, part mounted combatant i'd very much like to pair him with another character who would act as his ward.
Benefits include high bonuses to your rolls via aid another as well as AC bonuses; and free dental. Another martial type character is preferred. Any takers?
I'm actually having an early night so you will probably have time to post. Note that you don't really have line of sight to the northern climbing zombies until your right above them or extremely high in the air. You do have easy line of sight to the four about to climb the west wall though. Also a viable target for grease (affects the Climb DC) especially as none have started climbing yet.
Some food for thought. Turning in, at the least for a few hours.
No problem on movement Barak I initially had you there anyway and second guessed myself.
Looked back at the basilisk fight and I did rule differently I see. I made a judgement call on what was convincing proof for a int 1/2 creature differed from what was proof to an int 4+ humanoid. I think you got some decent mileage from a level 1 spell anyway. Silent image (and to a lesser extent illusions generally) always fiddly.
I'd rule DR works against tentacle damage. Its physical in nature being dealt by the tentacles themselves, and untyped damage is usually what you apply DR against. Its when its specifically called out (such as elemental) that it doesn't usually apply. Tentacle damage going through DR would be insanely good to what is already a great crowd control spell :)
I have a question for Slumbering Tsar GM's out there. Specifically, exactly what terrain does each quadrant fall under?
My personal take is that the Ashen Waste is Desert, the Dead Fields are Plains, the Chaos Rift is also Desert and the Boiling Lands are Swamp.
I'd appreciate both validation and other insights. Any thoughts on this?
