So . . . what do we do now? Now that the lamia teleported away, seems like there's a Wall of Force between us and the bad guys. Do we drop that wall and charge forward? I feel bad wasting Marcellano's spell but it seems to me we want to press on while all of Cadas's buffs are up and we have a tiger.

I'll probably spend another Standard Action to CMW on the tiger while we're waiting.

I am traveling, visiting my kids this weekend. Should have time to get a post up this weekend. Will likely heal the cat as well.

I have no idea... do we have the resources for a good ambush? If not we should probably fall back - we've killed a lot of ogres and coming back another day would only mean that the lamia gets healed...

Okay, I'm down for a retreat, followed by another attack after we have rested!

Maybe the cat can cover our retreat.

I need to finalize my spells. Will do that today.


Narrator [Maps, handouts, pictures: Links in top of page spoiler]

Tomorrow is US Independence Day. Wife and I are going to be attend an all day event and James Taylor concert at Tanglewood (LINK).

No further posts till Thursday.

What are you guys going to do?
1) Enter via the main entrance B11 or
2) Something else.


F Human Shoanti [AC: 23/12 tch/21 ff; HP 95/95; Frt +9, Ref +5, Will +13; Perc +19/21 vs creatures] Cleric 10, Init:+1, Diplo +8, Heal +15, Sense Motive +15

That sounds like a great way to spend the 4th. Hope you enjoy it. Still finalizing my spells. Too many choices.

I think we are going in the main entrance. That is my vote. My hope is that the focus on their defense would be placed on how we entered last time.

Main entrance - we want to keep the secret door a secret. Adolina will go first all sneaky like to make sure there isn't an ambush...

Sounds like a plan!

OK. Spells are final. Did not end up changing much. Dropped that aura that seemed to do little and replaced it with Dimensional Anchor for, I don't know... reasons. :) And picked up a second Barkskin.

After all that consideration, I think that was the only change.

Would it be worth one of us summoning in something now, as we go in?

Buffs, all for 90 minutes, include:

Communal Resist Energy 20 va electricity
Communal Resist Energy 20 va fire
magic circle vs evil 10’r on Cadas
communal delay poison
freedom of movement on Adolina
barkskin +4 on Cadas and Adolina

It might take us a while to find them...I'd rather pre-summon once we get to a closed door we suspect of being occupied, personally.

Also, WAIT. I always prep this and forget it. Before we go all the way in (but once Adolina confirms that the doors are open), I would like to attempt to scry on the lamia woman who vanished.

Will it work? Probably not! But it will be cool as hell if it does.

Does that require a large silver mirror worth like 1000gp?

Hm . . . that might be a problem.

Delay poison is 1 hour / level.

How are you splitting up the duration on the three communal spells?

I think the duration has to be equal. If so each person would get 20 minutes of resistance 20. If it can be other than equal Cadas will take the last 10 minutes of duration, making her duration 30 minutes.

For delay poison each person would get 2 hours of benefit.

PRD Says wrote:
Communal Spells: Communal spells function like other spells, except they allow you to divide the duration among multiple targets, treating each target as a subject of the spell. When you divide the duration, you must divide it as evenly as possible among the targets. Furthermore, unless the communal spell's description indicates otherwise, no target can receive a duration increment smaller than the smallest increment of duration listed in the spell description. For example, if you are 5th level, your communal spell's duration is 10 minutes per level, and you have four targets, each target must receive 10 minutes of duration. The extra 10 minute duration can go to one of the four targets or it is wasted.

You can give the extra 10 minutes / hour to one person. It is essentially as equal as possible, but still using the x / level.

Communal Spells is the 5th paragraph.

Oh damn, good point. My bad...a moot point since the spell failed, but still my bad. Will buy a mirror once we get back somewhere (and someone shout if they see one!).

In the old (3.5) days an arcane caster needed the mirror specifically, but a druid or cleric with spell could use a pool of water. Perhaps that has opened up now and you could use a pool of water too.?


Narrator [Maps, handouts, pictures: Links in top of page spoiler]

Nope. For Wizards, still a silver mirror worth 1000gp. LINK

Hi all! I am going on a belated honeymoon and will have only sporadic access to internet between now and August 4th. I’ll try to check in when I can, but please don’t hesitate to bot me if need be!


Narrator [Maps, handouts, pictures: Links in top of page spoiler]

I just got called into my part time job early, so I will have a post out this evening. Let me know of your plans.


Narrator [Maps, handouts, pictures: Links in top of page spoiler]

Three options being discussed:

1) Back to Magnimar (a week trip each way!).
2) Up to Hook Mountain to take on the ogre clan.
3) Back to Turtleback Ferry to investigate the list.

Which way?

Hey Everyone, I'm away for the next twelve days in Florida - going to Disney World for the first time!

I won't be able to check my games while I'm away so I'm on pause until the 10th (or possibly the 11th if I'm too jet-lagged!).

Please feel free to bot me as the situation requires! :)

Narrator [Maps, handouts, pictures: Links in top of page spoiler]

Marcellano is out till August 4th, Adolina is out till August 11th, so I am going to hold off posting till Sunday August 5th to give Cadas and Marcellano a chance to weigh in on this.

I would have said Saturday, but it is my granddaughter birthday party that day and she will be 6, so that takes priority.

I am here. I had spells prepped for going into the woods. How long did it take us to get to Turtleback? Do you mind if I switch out spells for what Cadas would have in the town? I am not exactly sure what that means. Likely just switching out 3 or 4 spells.


Narrator [Maps, handouts, pictures: Links in top of page spoiler]

@Cadas - You would have had to rest for the night before getting back to Turtleback Ferry, so go ahead and switch out spells.

Adolina out till 11 August;

I am here are ready to proceed.

One minor hick-up is that a new firewall at work will keep me from posting until late most days.

DM Papa.DRB,

Are you ok with me switching out Dispel Evil, which Cadas was never getting much use from for Communal Air Walk for while we are above ground. Its a good long term buff that she plans to prep always when she knows she is traveling, but I have to admit might be pretty handy dealing with the flood.


Narrator [Maps, handouts, pictures: Links in top of page spoiler]

Sure, go ahead and make the switch.

I knew about Robin and Rose - Tal'ariel is news to me though. Clearly great minds are drawn to each other! :)

I'm back now, will get a gameplay up shortly.


Narrator [Maps, handouts, pictures: Links in top of page spoiler]

Apologies, but Monday & Tuesday were terrible days at work, and the dang site has been down the rest of the week every time I tried to get on. It has also bounced or timed out several times on me this morning already.

Are you heading up to the dam at the request of the village elders? Or are you doing something else?

Other than basic supplies you will not be able to purchase anything, ie. no magic, in this small village.

As you get on, let me know your plans. If the boards keep "dieing", I'll "assume" on Monday that you are heading up to the dam and move the game forward to there.

Looks like the site is back, hopefully for good. We have had the grand daughter all week; she is six. With a campfire tonight, Tanglewood tomorrow night, church and traveling on Sunday, work Monday, I may not be able to get a post out till Tuesday 08/28. Will try tomorrow during the day, but no guarantee at this point.

I am back from Dragoncon and wanted to report in. I hope the site is now stable and we can get back to our game. :)


Narrator [Maps, handouts, pictures: Links in top of page spoiler]

Between site problems, no wifi over Labor Day weekend, and me feeling horrible because of the heat, I apologize for not being around much. Now that it is mostly over I will get back to a more normal posting schedule, starting tomorrow.
