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

sorry for the prolonged absences; work's a byoch...
I'll update in a few hours/get things rolling; son's got a Christmas play.
FINALLY gotten over this cold, though I'm still hacking up interesting things. HUZZAH!!!


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

Following the path,.....it's draped with palms and bordered by spiky palmettoes. Odd unknown birds or other things keep up a mad cacophony. A beetle three inches long drops onto Altai's sleeve, hooking pronged feet into the fabric. When he removes two legs, two more legs slowly hook back onto his shirt. At one point, a train of ants crosses from one side of the jungle to the other across the path, carrying little pieces of leaves like tiny green flags.
You all reach the point where the path continues east, and one twenty foot wide section of the path leads south to a set of double doors. To the north, you hear the sound of bleating. It sounds like a goat....from the area where, upon the map, a bridge seems to span a tiny stream.


Male Human Wizard 17 (Conjuration specialist)

"Damn bug." Altai finally dislodges it and puts it in a box for later study. "What's that? A goat being menaced by a bridge troll?"


Male Human Rogue 14

“Were-sheep?”


M Halfling Barbarian 10

"Hee hee! Beetle Boy have new friend!"

"Troll? Where troll?" <blades sweep from scabbards>


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

Goliath beetle; Panama; I love finally inserting a real life oddity into a game...


Male Wild Elf Druid 16 (Shifter version, PHBII)

Elgan smiles at Altai's new 'pet'.

"'Dat's deh fust normal t'ing ah seen in heah!" He grins, then frowns as he looks towards the bleating.

"Ah douts dat dat's a were-sheep,... but in dis place,... jes' a sec,..."

And he moves a few away from the group, listening intently.

Trying to see if there something 'wrong' with the bleat, or if it's just sheep talking, or panicked, etc.

Knowledge (Nature) roll: (1d20 11=24)


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

Goat: "hey......he e e e e e y!......wha a a a t am I doing he e e re? Hey! He e e e e e y!"
nothing out of the ordinary.


Male Wild Elf Druid 16 (Shifter version, PHBII)

Elgan turns back to the group, visibly relaxing.

"Nuttin' tah worry 'bout. Jes' a goat. Yeh wanna go an' check out dat doh?"


Male Human Wizard 17 (Conjuration specialist)

"Sure thing. Can you actually talk with goats?" Altai scratches his head. "What the hell do they talk about? Lice and shrubs?"

"Stupid goat."


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

What now, my intrepid ones?

I got PF 16, with mothman today...;)


Male Human Rogue 14

Beldan sighs. “Let’s … go see the goat.” He’ll let one of the animal lovers go first.


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

Animal lovers? Where???

Only on really cold nights.

OW!

ROFLMAO!

OW!OW!OW!OW! My rib cage!

STOP that! People look at me funny when I burst out laughing like that! And my family already thinks I'm crazy!

Elgan looks back over his shoulder,...

"Ah t'ink iz alrigh' chere'. Iz jes' a goat. Aldoh, whas a nice goat like dat doin' inna place like dis?,..."

If others think it's more than just our diabolical DM's set dressing, I'll take the lead to check it out. Otherwise, to the door?


Male Human Wizard 17 (Conjuration specialist)

"Who knows? This place is... odd." Altai starts going north. "We need to go north anyway - that's where the chapel is, according to the map."


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

Heading north,....the brick road turns west and leads onto a stonework bridge about 60 feet across, and 10 feet wide, and with a gently sloping curved rise of about 8 feet or so; it goes over a bend in the stream that roughly bisects the indoor jungle. In the middle of the bridge squats a bleating billygoat, a bell on his collar tinkling.


Male Human Wizard 17 (Conjuration specialist)

"This has got to be some kind of trap. Seriously."


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

aaaaah, the fun you can have with an old bridge and a goat. ;)

It's really starting to get on my goat.

Let's not lock horns over it.


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

Yeah; that'd be a tragedy.


Male Human Rogue 14

I’m feeling a bit sheepish about this. I hope it’s not going to be a bariaur to our friendship. Just think of it as satyr.


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

I won't get angora if you don't.

I gotta crash.....nitey nite!!

Ha! Nice … I got nothin’ else. I was trying to think of angoras, but I got them confused with alpacas, and couldn’t work anything.


Male Wild Elf Druid 16 (Shifter version, PHBII)

OW! My spleen! AND the druid crawls off into the woods to die laughing!

"While I wouldn't presume to advise you on your field of expertise... I would start with looking under the bridge. It could be some kind of bait."

For some reason, I thought angoras were cats. Goats, cats... Who can tell?


Male Human Rogue 14

I wikied it; they’re goats and cats and rabbits. Darn interbreeding…


Male Human Rogue 14

“Well I’m not going to mess with that goat; they can be feisty. I heard that three goats are about a match for a troll. If Elgan can get the goat to move, I’ll check the bridge.”


Male Human Rogue 14

Whoever heard of a group of 6th level adventurers being so wary of a goat?


Male Human Wizard 17 (Conjuration specialist)

*Altai and Beldan both turn towards Elgan*

We're old hands - this is just too absurd to not be trouble. Or something like that. ;P


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

What do you all do?


Male human/lizardfolk form Paragon 3 /Evoker 3 (abjuration&enchantment barred) ---15096XP

So what are 'ewe' guys thinking? Oh never mind. Grrr....(Riese will drop a Fiery Burst centered on the sheep DC16 reflex, 9 damage) Lamb chops, anyone?


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

You. Win. The thread.


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

As the fiery burst goes off, there is a thunderous stampede of footfalls like a thousand buffalo, and a rage-filled bestial roar like a thousand lions.
From the north, a full-grown tyrannosaurus rex thunders forth and grabs the (blackened) goat in it's maw, swallowing it in one gulp.

initiative; beat a 8 and it's your turn.

map in a sec....


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

SETUP
a-x across the top; 1-20 down the side...
The road runs from st 20 north to st7,bends left, r7-8 to a7-8, bends north to ab 1. ab is where the center fountain is...the bridge is g7-8 to r7-8, and the goat is at m7.
Everything off of the road is difficult terrain. The stream flows from about ef 1 southwest to bend north at no 10, then bends southeast at st4 and off the map. (the river's kinda flaky, I know.)
Start on the road anywhere from st 7 to st 20.
The....tyrannosaurus is at m-o 4-6.

Place yourselves on the trail between st7 and st20 somewhere;
again, beat 8 initiative and it's your turn...


Male Wild Elf Druid 16 (Shifter version, PHBII)

OW!OW!OW! Put Riese in the PUNitentiary! ;)

Elgan takes a single step towards the goat, preparing to say "Hi", when he has to duck both the terrible pun AND the fiery burst from the eloquent Riese. HE turns towards Riese, a scathing retort on his lips, when the ground begins to shake,...

"Wha deh,..." When the Tyrannosaurus appears like a one critter stampede and swallows the goat in one gulp.

"AW, Sunufacrap,... Yeppers, dat wuld be deh bait!"

He turns BACK to Riese with a glare.

"NOW see whut yeh dun!?!" He cries, backing up to join the rest of the group.

All I was going to say was that I thought the goat was just a harmless collector,... You have to pay to cross the Troll bridge! ;D


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

"Hungry!!!! Huuuuuuungry!!!!" the tyrant king proclaims with every deafening roar.

Oh, yes,....here there be dragons.

And his eye is drawn by Elgan's moving form...

Elgan freezes,...

"Aw, Sunufacrap,... DIS is gonna hurt,..."

Have a good idea, I can distract him, but will wait until I know when my move is in the order


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

Right on; roll initiative, pick a spot; if you beat an 8 it's your side's turn.


Male Human Wizard 17 (Conjuration specialist)

Base initiative 11. At least we beat the big critter.

"Um. Wow. See, I said was a trap..." Altai starts fumbling through his scroll cases, looking for the right spell.

I was thinking of dropping a Web on it. It might not slow the dino down for all that long, but it'll be a start. As I was up front discussing what to do with the goat, I'll take T10.


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

heh heh...


M Halfling Barbarian 10

Gittik grins maniacally. "True challenge! Gittik slay dragon and bring back heart for Jane so we can feast!"

(I'm on the train so I can't give a position yet.)


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

Jane's singing that Sheena Easton song.


Male human/lizardfolk form Paragon 3 /Evoker 3 (abjuration&enchantment barred) ---15096XP

No time to make a map until tonight....Just place me somewhere near the back of the party.
Gee, looks like a bigger critter needs some charring....bigger critter, bigger charring. IMBELIA PYRROK DE'FLAR!!! Riese casts a fireball slightly behind and above the Dino, ensuring that the T-rex's head and body are in the blast. IC is down so- 7d6=31 damage, DC 18 reflex for half.
And I was looking forward to lamb chops....guess dino ribs are gonna have to do...
