Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

I doubt it... don't care for them myself :)

'Kitty' Silena running off with the great axe causes considerable amusement amongst the crowd.

"I didn't see that coming, did you?" says someone.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The grumpy snake is dispatched without further ado.

The writing on the chest lids appears to be in Vudran. Can anyone read that?

Both the chest to the left and the chest to the right show up as being poisoned. The open chest contains six potions, none of which indicate as poison.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The wolves are preoccupied and fail to spot Lothar...

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

All you know, dear Silena, is that it's happened. Didn't look like Kardswann was spellcasting, he was busy wrestling.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The mage hand opens the chest (which wasn't locked). Hissing like a tea-kettle a crimson snake rears up, spreading a cobra-like hood, and looking around for something to bite!

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The leopard is somewhat startled as the world around her enlarges... or is it that she has shrunk?

Kardswann surges upright, hurling a kitten-sized leopard aside.

And we shall have your actions and rolls for the next round, please.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The gem in the wall is indeed a third eye bloodstone. As for why it's green... well, nobody knows. You do not, anyway!

Majenko thinks there's something alive in the middle chest.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

OK, Kardswann is pinned good and proper. Good leopard!

Hijiro misses with his rapier, possibly distracted by stray vipers or possibly arrows from above... that hit Kardswann, by the way, nice shot Barezata. Two vipers bit successfully as well.

Kardswann save #1: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (17) + 12 = 29
Kardswann save #2: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (7) + 12 = 19

Silena, please make a DC14 will save.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Excellent. It's almost 31 years since I got wed and it's been absolutely wonderful. Every good wish to you and the other lucky soul.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Samuel, the assorted denizens of the Battle Market are more interested in watching the show (and taking bets on it) than in interfering. The silver and black leopard is odds-on favourite.

I think it's the next round so sound off on what you want to do (apart from that delightful leopard... I know what you are doing!).

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

They still do not seem to have noticed you.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Ebon Wings, the scribblings seem to be a glyph of some kind, without actually reading it you cannot be certain what it is but likely something unpleasant, pain perhaps? Just as well Ashe has now dumped chalk all over it (nice move!).

Ashe, there's faint evil through the door... very faint.

Lucia, no traps and the door is unlocked.

Three large wooden chests, their lids decorated with carvings of cavorting tigers, sit against one wall of this room. Some sort of message seems to be carved on each lid. The wall opposite the chests is carved to depict hundreds of tigers marching in widening circles around a single green gem the size of a fist, set in the wall and itself carved to resemble a tiger's head.

It's not a big room, 10 ft wide and 15 ft long, and there are no other exits.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The effects of fume inhalation will last one round.

But... you have to check every round you are exposed to them. So if you go outside you will recover by the end of the round.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

You are always welcome here... and in the meantime, is it you that's getting married?

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Actually, it's the same fight - but anyone else who wants to join in will have to roll an initiative, of course, if they have not already done so.

Lessee, whose initiatives have I got?

Barezata - 15 - on balcony waving a bow and arrows around.
Silena (in leopard form) - 8 - on arena on top of Kardswann.
Ugruk the Gnoll - 8 - on balcony out cold at the very least.
Kardswann - 4 - on arena under a certain leopard.

Samuel's not rolled one yet. Where is he? On the floor near the arena?
Hijiro - have you rolled an initiative? I have you dancing around the arena poking at Kardswann.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

You are about 200 yards away.

Crossbows are too quiet to be effective at firing warning shots!

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

My initiatives:

Creature #1: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3

Creature #2: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (19) + 1 = 20

Creature #3: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 1 = 6

They do not seem bothered by the fumes, or maybe it's the cloths they have wrapped around their faces.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

We shall go for dramatic effect here... :)

Tumbling through the air, the giant leopard twists and turns as does Kardswann, but as they land with an impact that seems to shake the dust loose from the entire Battle Market, the cat is on top, uninjured.

Hijiro darts in to stab at Kardswann whilst Samuel summons his vipers - who look none too impressed at having to advance on a huge and snarling leopard but obey his bidding nonetheless.

Barezata peppers the gnoll with arrows. He isn't moving any more.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Barezata dumps the gnoll on his backside, the flindbar goes flying.

The leaping leopard collides with Kardswann and both go over the balcony to the floor below. (Hijiro gets an excellent view.)

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Eventually, with Rhasadilara leading the way and tracking, you hear snarling and shouting and crest a hill to see that worg, accompanied by three ordinary wolves, attacking a couple of gnomes who appear to be mapping the area.

You have surprise...

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Heads turn... and three of the creatures begin to move towards you in a threatening manner, readying clubs. The other five go back to work.

Please make a DC 12 Fortitude save, everyone, to avoid being nauseated by the acidic fumes.

If you wish to fight the three advancing towards you, please roll initiatives and state your intended actions... It will take them a round to get to you and it appears that they have only got melee weapons.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The scribble on the floor detects as magical, yes.

The Wayfinder thinks Ashe is facing south (if he is still facing towards the lever, that is).

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

OK, in where? Who's first? And what are you doing?

Liberty's Edge

Well, there's one review for Gericko to read now... hope it helps you decide!

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

These seem to be the only entrances to the building... but it is likely that they open into different parts of the interior.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

OK. Ashe pulls the lever. Everything seems to spin dizzily for a moment... and then you find that instead of looking back at the area with the statues, you are looking at a completely different scene.

You are facing a 10x15 foot room, one door on your right and one on the wall in front at the left end. (I'll upload a picture when I get a moment at home, cannot do it from work.)

There's something scribbled on the floor...

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Are you all in area E3 when Ashe pulls the lever?

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

All right then.

Would you like to catch up with the worg and have a brawl? A good fight might sort of clear the air and get us going again.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

So, where now?

Ashe, your floating feather has but 2 rounds left by the time your feet are once more on solid ground.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Ash floats down, Majenko fluttering around him.

At the base of the shalf the air is so hot it's virtually unbreatheable... and that's without the taint of sulphur. The crystal is HUGE - thicker around than Ashe is tall and embedded in the wall and floor of the shaft. It's too hot to touch.

It is, however, not magical.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The 'men' are mostly on the planks across the vats. A couple are at floor level, stoking furnaces and the like.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Perhaps you are right. I think I've rather 'lost the plot' with this one... I am still interested but I'm at a loss as to what to do with you.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

You find that the rope is nowhere long enough. Do you want to featherfall down?

Majenko seems to be implying that the rhomboid crystal is absolutely enormous, how much of that is down to the fact that he's pretty small you cannot tell.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The door is locked but soon opens under Dillan's skilled hands, revealing a large chamber beyond. This chamber occupies a whole side of the building, from the cellar level below up to the roof high above. Seven iron vats, each ten feet across, occupy the majority of the room. Furnaces fuel the vats at cellar level, while at the ground floor level a series of planks have been laid across the vats to allow passage to a ladder that leads to an iron walkway on the level above. Two ladders also allow access from the planks to the floor below. The air in the chamber is cloying and acidic.

You're on a narrow stone platform 15 feet above the floor level. There are eight man-like creatures working in here, all wearing cloth breathing masks.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The hole seems to go down forever, Ashe, even with Dauntless Heart's light you can see no bottom. The walls of the hole are rough and do not look as if they were manmade.

Majenko flashes past and soon is out of the circle of light. He reports that it is getting hotter down here. Eventually he reaches the bottom... or at least a place where the sides appear to have collapsed. He reports a large rhomboidal crystal which is too hot for his claws to touch, half-buried in the debris.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The mutt growls from its kennel but seems remarkably spooked by a missle weapon.

There is a door to the north and double doors to the east. Above the east doors, there are another set of doors with a hoist above.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Ashe walks forwards feeling no resistance to his progress... as the rest of you watch he walks straight into the 'wall' which you all realise isn't actually there.

You see Ashe moving forwards steadily... until there suddenly is no floor beneath his feet! The hole was real, it seems. It seems to take a long time before the rope around his waist snaps taut and you hear a grunt from below as he's winded as his fall is arrested.

The piton appears to be holding.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Round 1

A flurry of activity begins. Sorin mutters away casting bless. Tre'duinne gets out a shortbow and opens fire, hitting the flesh-golem-dog-thing on the snout.

The effect is quite dramatic, although Tre' is sure he didn't do much, if any, damage. The poor mutt wimpers, its tail goes between its legs and it scampers off into its kennel where it lies shivering.

Dillan and Barret jump down into the yard. The mutt stays in its kennel. Do the pair of you want to go and beat it up?

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Got busy (or is that busier!)... sorry!

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Got busy... sorry!

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The flesh-golem dog knows that you are there, so no surprise...

Its initiative: 1d20 ⇒ 7

Please state actions & rolls for Round 1.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The gap does not seem to have any hidden blades, doors, spikes, etc.

The steps to the SE do appear to lead to a blank wall, yes... but as Lucia gets closer she finds that it's an illusion. Beyond is a deep, deep hole.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Oh dear... sorry folks.

Sorin - 1d6 ⇒ 5 damage
Barret - 1d6 ⇒ 5 damage

The strange dog-golem thing comes over and stands at the base of the wall, sniffing.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

This is a horrendous area, even the DM map barely makes sense and there is no player-friendly one at all...

Nothing untoward can be seen and Ashe is able to step forwards safely.

Majenko, fluttering ahead, spots something strange. At the archway to the room beyond (the one the statues seem to be ushering you to) there is a gap in the floor, walls, and ceiling.

In the area beyond, two alcoves adorn either side of an otherwise empty room. In one alcove, a long lever with an ebony handle protrudes from the wall.

Tried to bodge a map for you - the red dotted line shows where the gap Majenko spotted is.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Ouch!

Tre - 1d6 ⇒ 2 damage.
Dillan - 1d6 ⇒ 5 damage.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The door proves to be unlocked, Lucia. Two statues, each depicting a tiger-headed man, stand in alcoves to either side of the doors. Their arms are wide, as if to usher visitors forward into the room beyond.

Ashe, as you face the doors you are looking due North.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

With varying amounts of effort, you all manage to scramble up... and find that the wall is topped with nasty shards of broken glass.

You'd all better make a DC16 Reflex save to avoid getting skewered!

Below you can see an iron-wheeled cart at one side and a bizarre creature, seemingly made of scraps, sniffing around and looking up at you baring a mouth-full of ill-assorted teeth.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

They are just about still in range...

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

There are faint indications of magic from beyond the door but nothing definite. There does not appear to be any traps - or scrying devices - here.
