Bedlam does have 2 Cure light wounds Extracts. Not too much else; if our cleric is tapped out?


Map updated! You're at 21 on Marthek Map 3 right now.

Hmmm....a few doors remain unexplored!!!


Yep, but you're almost done with the floor!

Also, party, note that when the book has empty or boring rooms I often delete them, so you might see a few "explored" that you don't remember.

I can't help but wonder if this might help out Anzath. And maybe Aurora.

I say we explore the 4 little rooms then camp. Save the bigger areas and the secret door for morning?

I'm dying of laughter at the implication of D'mitri being an animal x'D

Through the line of work I do, I see more and more people personally effected by the corona virus. Much confusion, uncertainty, fear, and loss being processed. My well wishes for everyone this holy day season. Stay safe, stay healthy.

I'm not sure what you mean by four little rooms. If I understand the layout right, we are by number 21. 15, 16 and 17 are where we found the rat nursery, the broom and the coffin factory. 18 I think is where we found the ogres. 13 is where we found Saracek.

So we have left:
-the secret door between 9 and 12.
-the tunnels by 20. I guess that's the ogre latrine and something else?
-21, which I think is the secret door Anzath just found.
-the two doors in room 1 on the west wall, which is where we came onto this level.

I think the obfuscation by room 7 is the stairs down we said we'd try later.

Correct map?
MartheMap3?
I am only referring to the 4 blanked out rooms. Then we rest before venturing further?

Edit: agreed...lol.

Which is the way the goblins ran off to?

I am not sure. On the map, they ran from area 9. I am not sure if they ran towards 6/7/8 or 12/13/14.


I should update the map more often! Let me help y'all out.

Not everything that is blanked out is a room. I occasionally blank out spoilers telling you where different passages go, like if you tried to climb the ogre hill or slide into the ogre latrine (room 20 was the dirt room Bedlam found). In fact, I really should have blocked out the tunnel to 4B-E up in the north, but I guess 4B-E doesn't mean much to you all, so no real harm done. Trag's Arcane Eye had already found the passage to the surface there.

The goblins went down the stairs behind the door in room 7.

The far-east little blank near Saracek's rooms is the secret door you passed without opening.

The blank in the southwest is where you are now, also a secret door.

The big blanks on the west coast are beyond those two doors just opposite the stairs that you saw pretty much right away, but that you haven't opened yet.

Tragershen's geography is accurate.

Just to pick something, I say secret door in Saracek's chamber.

Anzath's dilemma, in reverse.


@Tragershen, we finally got to the Twisted Cuban today! Ropa vieja and lechon asado were really great!

So glad to hear you enjoyed it! We haven't been there since the pandemic started; we should do take out to help support a favorite small business. :)

It was brought up on The Glass Canon podcast, the strangeness that is Combat Reflexes, in that you can make what amounts to many iterative attacks in a round, but you don’t take the -5 normal iterative attacks take. Every AoO is made at full attack bonus. It seems like an oversight, but I’m glad for it at this moment.


Yo, Terapin! I forgot to answer your question about hit point totals and accuracy--each player should update their statlines as things change, and I'll keep track as well. That way, we can check each others' work and when I finally kill everyone, it'll be fair and square.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Still not clear here. I'm hoping to catch up in the new year.


Good to see you, Tal! Get well ASAP!

I have a little yuletide cheer for everyone--you know that song "Good King Wenceslaus"? It's about a king and his page feeding a poor dude they find in the woods. But he wasn't a king, he was a duke. And he was supposedly a pretty good guy, but he was assassinated by his brother who then took the throne. His rep was so good and his death so awful that folks canonized him and saved his bones for relics.

This is literally the skull of Wenceslaus wearing a golden crown

The story doesn't end there--his page, the very same one from the song, the one who fetched the flesh and wine and pine logs thither (wink wink, says Christian doctrine), the one who, in the most beautiful part of the song, follows literally in Wency's footsteps:

Mark my footsteps, good my page
Tread thou in them boldly
Thou shall find the winters rage
Freeze thy blood less coldly.

In his masters step he trod
Where the snow lay dinted
Heat was in the very sod
Which the Saint had printed

(such good imagery!)

...well that page was named Podevin. And, later, Podevin tracked down the leader of the band of assassins who killed Wenceslaus (he was good at following tracks?). The assassin must have seen the young man approaching with naked steel in his hand and death in his eyes, and must have said something like "Podevin, you have me cornered. But if you kill me, the new duke will kill you, and horribly."

Because we have this one line in the historical record from Podevin, who told the duxicidal assassin,

"God will care for my health and salvation, but you have lost all your health and salvation long ago and you will die in sin for ever."

And then he killed him! Inigo Montoya, take a seat. And the new duke did indeed hang young Podevin, whose body was left dangling for YEARS.

Merry Christmas from History--may Rappan Athuk strive to reach such a high standard of awfulness and drama! And crown-wearing skulls!

Bohemia is full of awesome history. I see he's the patron saint of the czech people, which is about 1/4 of my cultural heritage, so thats cool.

Happy holidays y'all.

you know, I had a dream a few nights ago about Anzath dying. So, I'm glad it was a spiky rock and not a dual wielding skeletal champion ninja kobold. And, if there is such a villain, I hope we don't encounter them for a long time.


Hmm.... no..... comment...........

2020 was definitely a GMs confirmed critical with exploding dice.

Well, with the situation such as it is, a full attack would be fruitless. Getting out and adapting to the situation I think is the tactical move. I figure a 10 or above means she tries to stay clear minded.

I tend to agree. Unless Tarapin thinks he can summon something that can turn the tide, that strength damage will probably wear us down before we can take them in the darkness. It may even be time for us to surface for a bit. I have to admit, I have lost track of where we are on our draconic advent calendar. But we do have some worthy tribute if that's due.


Bold of you to make long-term plans right now.

Also, the slow pace of PbP means that it is the 14th of the month. The dragon tribute is due on the 1st of the next month, I think, so you have more than half a month's time.
