DM Bigrin's Second Darkness

Game Master bigrin42

A foul omen looms in the sky over the scoundrel city of Riddleport, an ominous shadow that defies the light. Is it a curse laid millennia ago by forgotten mages? Does it forewarn against the return of some terrible foe? Or does it portend a terrible

All in all, we're not doing too badly.
Our first big hurdle is getting out of Vonnarc. If we can fake being a slaver and his wares long enough, I've got a spellbook full of illusion spells we can use to make our exit smoother. Maybe Quevven can check us into an inn or something once we're out of here.

Sorry for the silence. I had a trip that I completely forgot to plan for. Still on the road. More posting on Thursday.

Guys, I am sorry about the delays. RL has backhanded me int he face with an armored gauntlet this week. Regular posts incoming starting tomorrow (hopefully).

Take the time you need. Best of luck -- and do not pick up the gauntlet from where it fell! ;)

Thanks for letting us know.


Been there. You do what you gotta do. Hope things get better for you and yours.

My turn to apologize. It has been an INSANE month and it's ending on a high note.

Starting this weekend, I will be accompanying my aging father on a road trip of over 1300 miles to retrieve two dogs and 'some' furniture.

During this i will not likely have internet, so we're looking at 8 to 9 days when I will be unable to post.

I will try to get some in, but it seems unlikely I will be able to. Please bot me freely.

Will do, buddy

Recommend we dump the cart and lizard, I use my last scroll of Haste and we boogie on down the yellow brick road!

I don't think we're in a spot to run right now -- we'll just be tracked. I'm all for using haste, but I'd rather get these guys off our backs. If another wave comes, maybe I think differently, but Calla prefers to hit hard; then they won't hit you back.

Hey guys, just FYI, work is hitting me hard right now. I've also got my folks coming to visit over the weekend -- Long story short, my posting may be spotty through the weekend (though I'm hoping I can sneak in some time tomorrow and/or Friday).


HP 105/110, AC 24/13/22, F +12, R +14, W +5, Init +2, Per +14 (+17 traps)

That's about where I am too, Calla. Hang in there!

Best of luck, Calla and Brue.

Brief non sequitur: it is so good to see all of our old avvies again, instead of the Drow faces we'd put on for infiltration purposes. :')

When we started playing, who could ever have guessed I'd get so much mileage out of summoning giant spiders? ^_^

My to hit rolls are so pathetic I may cry

Just a heads up. I will be travelling for 2 weeks starting Wednesday. My posting may be spotty during that time, though I hope to be able to post daily still. Combat updates might be slowed down. Please RP in my absence.

Well, apparently the lake house within a 10 minute drive of Ft Worth had ZERO internet. Being without internet for 5 days was both a blessing and a curse (mostly curses). I am leaving tomorrow for another trip, but this time I *should* have internet enough for 1/day posting. In the meantime, I am going to catch up on my games. Thanks for the understanding.

No prob. ^_^ Did you have a nice time?

It was good, all things considered.

In another game I was running, the magic circle discussion came up. I did a lot of reading into the spell itself, and all the GM commentary I could find. Here is my ruling.

There are 2 forms of the magic circle spell, essentially 1 to keep evil out and one to keep it in (binding). The binding version is stationary, as explicitly stated in the spell. For the other version, I focused on two primary sources.

CRB, Emanation wrote:


An emanation spell functions like a burst spell, except that the effect continues to radiate from the point of origin for the duration of the spell.
CRB, Angel Subtype wrote:


Protective Aura (Su) Against attacks made or effects created by evil creatures, this ability provides a +4 deflection bonus to AC and a +4 resistance bonus on saving throws to anyone within 20 feet of the angel. Otherwise, it functions as a magic circle against evil effect and a lesser globe of invulnerability, both with a radius of 20 feet (caster level equals angel’s HD). The defensive benefits from the circle are not included in an angel’s statistics block.

Since the spell is an emanation from the creature touched, and the angel's protective aura acts like a MCAE, it seems that the aura would be useless to the angel if it was stationary, and emanations are a continuously updating radius from wherever their source happens to be, i.e., mobile.

So, with that in mind, my ruling is the MCAE when used in its protective form moves with its point of origin, e.g., the person touched.

Note: this is different from communal Prot Evil in that to benefit from it, you have to be bunched up inside the circle, and once you leave the circle, you lose its effects for the duration of the spell (you can't leave and come back).


HP 105/110, AC 24/13/22, F +12, R +14, W +5, Init +2, Per +14 (+17 traps)

Yep, that's the trade-off as I understood it - if you want to get the benefit from the spell, you have to be all bunched up in a nice, tight fireball formation.

Right! This shouldn't be too much of a problem, given we're crossing a bridge together. Right, guys? Well, except for Gadak, who will be feeling a bit weak-kneed until the spell ends.

Everyone, I have a gift for you. In thanks for putting up with my absence, I am giving each player (not character) a free re-roll to be used in any game I GM for you. And FYI, I keep track of who received a certificate, and when it was redeemed, so no making copies and trying to pass them off :p

Thank you for your patience.

From now on, when I travel, I'm just going to assume there will be no internet. This is getting ridiculous.

But, I am back for a bit (gone Sun/Mon Aug 20-21 and again Wed-Thus Aug 23-24) and then no long-duration trips for a while.

Thank you for your patience.

Did you have a nice trip?

It was a good trip. Spent most of it in a conference room, but still got a chance to go out and have some fun. Enjoyed the Vancouver Aquarium, and the Gaslamp District, and some nice restaurants.

I believe I'll be traveling Sunday and Wednesday to visit my folks. I expect to have time to update Monday and Tuesday, though am not 100 percent sure I will.

Okay, all travel is over and I will NEVER AGAIN assume that internet night actually be available in the modern world, not even in a major hotel.

Sorry for slowness, we have a 12 year old beagle with medical troubles. Been to the vet, but he's going to take some extra tending to.

As my wife is a vet, I understand completely.

I was torn between dealing direct damage and support by means of debuffing an enemy.
I went with debuffing. Hopefully Lefrik can break free more easily now. :(
Next round, it's Little Biy Vonnarc's turn.

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16, RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Well, if you cut its Strength by 10, that's a hell of a good debuff.

I'm counting on a 5, really, but I have nothing else that can get Lefrik out of there. I'm all out of Summonses for the day.

Well, if you thought escaping the darklands would be easy, you haven't been paying attention :)

Sorry for the silence. I've been very sick the last few days. Regular posting to resume shortly.

Okay. Sorry, have spent all day until now hunting a lost toy poodle. I haven't even peeked to see if Lefrik is alive still.


Male(HP:(168/168; DR 2(3 when raging);AC:22/12/22;F+16,R+7,W+6;Init +0;Per +13) Human (Ulfen) Barbarian 11

My rolls to hit are still terrible.

On the plus side, I remembered to add in his magic belt's Con bonus *Doh*

That's why we have Lefrik -- to carry heavy things. Assuming we can get the gate open without you...

Also, happy New Year, everyone.
