Catching up, slowly, after my week with 'Annie',... 'Jr.' ;P I'll take a look, might be worth buying a few (several) potions of boosts (Barkskin, Bulls str, etc.) so I'll have more spells available to convert to healing.

One obvious thing would be to get a better Cloak of resistance. Maybe he could get upgrade for Tenser as well?

Good idea. +4 should do it. 16,000 gp

Two potions resist energy (acid) are enough? 600 gp

I got two of protection from energy and two of resist energy.

Was your holiday back to Canada?

Manila & Bejing. Mostly Manila. It was a 'sort of' holiday. Just taking up the slack of living in China. Like going to competent doctors and dentists. Buying things that don't fall apart in a week...

Oh yeah, forgot about that one. WIll do.

I hear they got nice envelopes there. I should be shot....

Just waiting on Daddy Warbucks over there...;)

I like the idea of getting a wand of Endure elements. How about getting two more - Resist energy and [7]Protection from energy[/i]? Total cost of those two is 15750 gold - or 3150 for each of us.

Done. Beldan's happy to throw in the cash.


Arooooooo!

[ooc]Group wands, done


Male Human Wizard 17 (Conjuration specialist)

Nice. Let's make the Endure elements and Resist energy wands divine (Elgan carries those) and the Protection from energy wand arcane (I'll carry that. I'll also buy myself a wand of False life to beef me up a little.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Looks like Elgan; Pip to buy their stuff.

The purchasers went off separate ways; the town doesn't seem too murderous, merely rough and tumble during daylight hours anyway; Hnoss said to meet at a certain tavern and then off on this dragonquest.
"fatten up, men...the food's good here...might be the best food we get in our bellies for a while."

She's dressed in elfin chain with a bearskin cape; a helm with eagle wing devices sits next to her on the table. Golden hair braided, sipping hot cider.
Those who have bought their gear slowly trundle in to join her at a table.

When the group's assembled, then we're off, trudging into the snowy forest.

"How goes the buying, men?" she says to everybody, and nobody in partickilar.

Out of Stiggy's earshot,

Spoiler:
Hnoss asks, pointing at Stiggy; "uh...does he do anything? useful?...

ROFLMAO!!!

I gotta crash...


Male Human Wizard 17 (Conjuration specialist)

Final pickup: Wand of Protection from evil. I'm ready to go.

"Well...", Altai answers Hnoss. "One is probably never ready to face a dragon. However, we are as well prepared as we can be, methinks. Stig certainly seems ready."

"Oh, most definitely. And, additionally, he keeps the brewers of the multiverse fat and happy."

Does anyone want to buy some Slaying arrows? Personally I think the Fort DC is too low for them to be particularly useful. Having said that, some Dragonbane arrow might make sense for Beldan.

“Oh ... good ...” says Beldan, blushing slightly, having momentarily forgotten how beautiful the woman was, and suddenly, obscurely, wondering if she wore elven chain underwear beneath her mithral tunic ... and how might that look ... then he’s distracted by Stig and Tensor’s arrival and has to stifle a laugh.

Ah, that could be a plan if there are some available Heath?

EDIT: You’re probably right Vatters, slaying arrows against dragons ... well, any dragon worth his salt is likely to make that Fort save pretty easily. But bane arrows could certainly come in handy, particularly as it’s unlikely Beldan will be making many sneak attacks.


Male Wild Elf Druid 16 (Shifter version, PHBII)

ARGH! 2 PC's to update tonight! (AND a house to clean, AND shows at work,...) AH well, at least I get to gripe! ;P I'll try to shop/update asap. Any suggestions for a druid besides those wands I'll carry for the group? Hm,... I'll think about buying; Wands; BArkskin, Bull's Str, Bear's End, Owl's Wisdom (A higher Wis means more spells/day!) I'll take a lok and see if I can think of anything else.

Elgan goes shopping, apparently he likes to bargain,...

Sorry, been wicked pressed for time. Will post updates tonight, in shah allah

...Owl's Wisdom (A higher Wis means more spells/day!) ...

Sadly, the spell doesn't work that way (it only increases spell DCs, skill checks, Will saves and that sorta thing). You'll need a Pearl of Wisdom to get more spells. However, buying one of those is probably a good idea!


<Still pulling the vodka sled, Tenser marks nearby snowbanks with curly yellow dog signatures.>


<Slumped into a snowbank. Shouting.>

"Tenser! Empty!"


<Half muttering to himself or talking to whoever will listen... Stig pokes at the new fur lined cape and remarks:

"Aam tellin' ye. Since Ah donned thes cape aam havin' a heel ay a time gettin' dead wrecked."


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Two surly, greyish skinned dwarfs walk buy.
One says, "loooosh!"
the other;
"hey, dude.....nice cape."


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

just the.....stiggy....walking along with one hand over his eye, and tenser with the vodka on a sled...
I've been laughing about that s~%@ all day at work.
"What are you laughing about, Heath?"
Are you f!~&ing serious?
How can I possibly explain this s!@+?

<Seen only by Stiggy.>

Beldan whispers to the others “Uh ... should we do something? He’s worse than usual I think.”


Male Human Wizard 17 (Conjuration specialist)

"Aw, come on , Stig. Here, let me help you up." Altai tries to pull Stig to his feet, but fails to even budge him; instead, he directs Claw to lift up and carry the dwarf. While the golem cradles Stig, Altai discreetly cleans the dwarf up with a Prestidigitation cantrip.

"Excellent. Let's get going then." Altai helps himself to a shot of schnapps from the barrel as the party marches into the snowy wilderness.


Male Human Rogue 14

“Anyone need some of these dragon-bane crossbow bolts? They would only sell them in bunches of fifty .... damn extra-planar salesmen ...


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

sheeeesh!

I'll get this thing rolling tomorrow.

She asks, "Are we ready? It's a ways to go....I'd like to get underway."
shudders a bit when she looks at the McStiggster.

Beldan shifts his position, doing a very poor job of shielding the fat, sleeping dwarf held by the flesh golem from the woman's view.

"Let's go."


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

The little group trundles off into the wintry forest.

Elgan:

Spoiler:
This place doesn't feel right. When you usually enter a forest, you feel the Circle of Life Lion King groovy vibe.
Here feels like a chancre, or scar tissue. A forest on the edge of doom. The interconnecting strands of All Life hang tattered in the clawlike limbs of the sparse, winterdead trees.

The place looks bleak; grungy snow over a peat bog; interspersed with sallow, sickly seeming winterdead trees, crisscrossed by icy rivulets.
Everything seems mostly iced over, though, in the peat.

The only signs of (faunal) life,.....a vulture here. A pair of ravens there. There is no road; Hnoss dangles a magnetized piece of iron out every once in a while to gauge the direction.

The first sign of death:
a good-sized tree, about 100 yards ahead, on the edge of a clearing that in warmer months would be a pond,....hangs three corpses from it's able branches.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Huzzah!


Male Human Rogue 14

Check out the bodies. Did they die from hanging, wounds, acid, something else? So far as a casual examination from a distance can tell.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Two from hanging for sure.
One has a lot of arrows in his chest. About 36.
As well as hanging.

They look equipped with chain shirts; which are rusted into a state of uselessness.

they're frozen; been dead a long time.
Somewhat preserved.


Male Human Wizard 17 (Conjuration specialist)

"Dragons don't shoot people with arrows. I guess it has some smaller servants."


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Hnoss draws steel and readies her shield.


Male Human Wizard 17 (Conjuration specialist)

The dead guys aren't zombies, magical scrying sensors or something like that? I'll fire off a Detect magic to find out.

"You know, they've been dead for a while."


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

You can sense.....magic all around; it's like background noise as opposed to a spell or magical thing.
A background necromancy.
This whole place is like one great big low grade necromantic spell.
The three hanged men, though, don't register particularly anything.

Hnoss nods; answers "how long is long enough?"


Male Human Rogue 14

“I wonder if it’s dragon cultists that got them, or just some other unfriendly local?” asks Beldan, looking around.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Two ravens sit in a tree; they caw at Beldan.

About 100 yards away, something smallish and four legged, running through the woods....
