Guiness should take the cmw potion. He'll most likely use it soon anyway. Kargas should grab the clw.

I forgot that the last GM was the loot person. Anyone in love with spreadsheets that'd be willing to do it? I could if nobody else wants to, but I don't know how to do anything fancy. It will literally be just a list.

Yep Flo, you can definitely use Grace to stand without provoking.

Kellek made a knowledge check that was just barely successful. He got their type (evil outsider) along with a couple of their most famous special abilities. KN Planes is the right skill - if you hit DC18 or higher, you can get additional info (and you can ask for one of the three info categories, like last time).

Back to the loot discussion, did we ever distribute the loot from the goblin chief? Cause there was a +1 small shortsword that I could use.

Take it and run! While we never settled on a method, like I said, as long as someone isn't getting screwed, I'm cool with it being as lax or rigid as it comes.

Hey GM, for purposes of planning my next turn what would be involved in trying to lift the portcullis? Just go by my Lift Over Head weight or use a Str check? Or something else?

I've seen lifting portcullises given different rules in different places. I'd say its a STR check here, done as a standard action and with both hands. The DC would be challenging, but not as nigh-impossible as trying to burst the portcullis with sheer strength.

Guiness, check the gameplay thread now.

Guiness does seem to get himself to some scrapes, doesn't he?

I would normally have had Guiness step back and ready an attack, but there were two mitigating factors...

1) He was humiliated in the last combat by his fear and his inability to significantly damage the hounds.

2) He heard spellcasting down the hall and was worried about what a spellcaster behind a hound could cast at them when they couldn't get to her.

That being said, a combination of his pride and his desire to protect others prodded him to advance on the enemy, hoping Kargas could support him with the reach weapon while he shielded himself...

Of course, the portcullis changes all that. Let's hope his companions can rescue him from his poor decisions and he can learn a lesson in humility...

Posting this in all of my games:

As of yesterday, I have moved to London!

1. This should not impact my posting regularity, but it will change when I can post (around five hours earlier now).

2. If you live in London and enjoy playing with me/in my games, shoot me a PM! I'd love to get involved in the local PFS, a homegame, or even 5e (although I'd be brand new at that).

Wow Flo! That's a pretty big move! Hope you have an easy time settling in and enjoy the new experiences. I've never been to London, but I'd love to visit it at some point.

I'm also currently posting from an EU time zone, for the following two weeks while I'm traveling.

Also, looks like we've slowed down significantly posting-wise. I'm not sure if that's just people's schedules, or if you guys are in decision paralysis (I know my f2f table sometimes locks up when the decisions start meaning life or death for a PC). Let me know if I can answer any Q's for you.

Guiness is just waiting until the end of the group’s turn to roll for stabilization, especially since he may stabilize by spell if someone has an open action to cast it on him. The rest of the group has done a good job of keeping the bad gal’s attention on them so Guiness hopefully won’t get immediately eaten.

If it helps, I can pre-roll his con save...

All my spells at this point are touch :/ the only thing useful things I can do at this point are bit of luck and guidance. I’ll post for real in the morning, but otherwise I’m banking on this portcullis to come off the ground so we can actually fight these goons and save Guinness.

Including driving on the wrong side of the road! ;D

Sorry, holiday weekend for all us right driving people in the States.

So to be clear, Kellek put a second set of illusory portcullis on the other side of the hall between Guiness and his attackers. Kellek can't rightly give away the fact until he is sure that it doesn't matter anymore. At which point he he would do so (or alternatively he would just let the spell fade out after a round of not concentrating on it).

Now it seems at some point in all that the supposedly real portcullis on our side raised? Was that Kargas holding it up? If so, someone could have just reached in and grab Guiness and dragged him out (see manipulate an item).

Oddly, the other thing Kellek would have done, if he could have, was to put a 40' pit under our foes alas, he needs a 10' X 10' floor space to do so.


Seaweed Leshy Technomancer 1 / Game Master 3 | Maps: (Dead Suns Maps) | (DeadSuns Handouts) | (RotRL Handouts) | (RotRL Maps) | (DoF Handouts) | (DoF Maps)

Kellek: Your illusion was a third portcullis, as one portcullis fell on either side of the trapped square. It's obvious from the behavior of the two enemies that they can see through the illusion. Kargas lifted the first portcullis up, but he couldn't get both lifted at the same time, and with the trap still active he didn't want to stay in the trapped square.

Yeah for my part at least I'm hesitating because I don't see any way to save Guiness. If Colvyn makes his saves against any spells she throws at him and does enough damage they might withdraw, but it'd be really easy for them to kill Guiness on the way out.

Other than taking the time to break each portcullis I don't know how else Kargas can contribute.

Good points, Kargas. Perhaps it would help to know how quickly the portcullis is rising. Assuming that contact with the floor is needed to trigger the trap, the hound might just float right over and attack as soon as the way is open...

...and sorry for Guiness putting you guys in this situation...He misread the trap and the opposition badly.

No worries, I think we've all been faithfully running our characters as we envisioned them. Sometimes bad things happen! We've just got to keep doing something so the portcullises can keep rising over the next X turns!

EDIT: I'm imaging a duel of fates situation here, except hopefully without our metaphorical Qui-Gon getting cleaved in half before we can get there ;)

I figure the characters can probably judge that the portcullises are rising quickly, so you know that they will rise fully at the end of the current round.

If you want to change your actions knowing that, go ahead.

Portcullis speed is not something currently affecting Guiness’ actions (or lack thereof). He will stay with his current action, hoping to roll an 18 or higher next round unless he is remotely stabilized...

Welp, my jump doesn't appear to have been an allowed move. I posted at work and wasn't able to view the map & it didn't click for me that the Yeth Hound had moved up. There's no way I can clear the trap and be in a legal square.

@GM, is it alright to just attack with the ranseur instead of the falchion? If not I understand.

I need to be more careful about reading the posts.

It happens to us all, Kargas...

-> When the half orc barbarian makes less reckless choices than the Dwarven fighter, it is time for Guiness to re-think his life choices...If he survives, Guiness is going to hopefully act much less rashly in combat...

Kargas, see if my ooc comment on gameplay cleared things up for you.

Thank you for the clarification, GM, I'd like to remain in my square and attack the Hound with my ranseur. Okay to use the roll in the original post's spoiler box or should I reroll?

Okay! So the dog has a mean bite.

Question for the team, especially Guiness because it has implications for him. If Kargas were to just slam his spear into the trigger plate and activate the trap, it would hem in the Yeth Hound between the portcullises and subject it to those statue attacks in addition to whatever damage we do. BUT...that traps Guiness over there with Nualia again for a couple of rounds. Colvyn and Kellek could still do damage to her through the bars, but if she decides to just drag Guiness around the corner as a hostage there's not really a way for us to stop her.

But that monster is hitting Kargas easily and doing a lot of damage and I don't know what'll happen if both the fighter-types go down. Thoughts?

I thought of that myself...it could work, but the hound could make its reflex save and you would have missed a chance to attack with a holy powered weapon and a bit of luck. Hopefully Rig gets back this round too and can contribute.

I would be inclined to have Kargas take the attack and hope to do a lot of damage, especially if he can rage this round and/or Rig can show up and provide backup (or healing). If it goes well, we try keeping Kargas up as point man. If it goes poorly, someone near the end of the round can try and trigger the plate before the hound moves out of the kill zone.

If you'll forgive the pun, it is dicey either way. FWIW, I could totally see a desperate Kargas doing that. She did have ample chance to just kill Guiness before while the bars were being raised. Not that she couldn't resort to that now, but she seems out to get us all out of the fight before actually killing us.

It's like 55/45 for me, but if you want my vote, it is to activate the trap.

Yes, but if we kill Ole Yeller and then not give her an easy way to get us back, she is an evil cleric after all. One negative channel....

Kellek would say Kargas should spit the dwarf on the end of your pole-arm like a bit of litter on the roadside with a trash picker and toss him back to us first. Though I do have some mule-headed fighter-types who would say the opposite. Of course one of them has an adamantine falchion and would just have cut through the portcullis.

Ha! If Kargas stands up, takes a 5 foot step forward and hooks Guiness with the Ranseur and yanks, Guiness would trigger the trap as he slides over the pressure plate...If he pulls fast enough, Guiness will be through before the portcullises come down. If not, time to make a new character...And the hound is either trapped or dodges to one side of the trap or the other.

carpe nanum would probably the closest thing.

I say Kargas should just kill the damm dog while he has all those buff. I don't recall those things having a s&*& load of HPs

So, Kargas, I don’t know if you are waiting on Guiness’ opinion of the options still. In case you are, know that I am okay with whatever you decide—Guiness got into the spot he is in trying to rush forward and stop the enemy from getting to the less armored ones of us. As long as what you do is a brave attempt to protect those same people, he is good with it.
