Eska will swing at you but it will be for her own pleasure not the cultists.

Eska burn through the bonds discreetly with your acid splash spell after they tie us up. It's only verbal and somatic.

Yeah, I reckon half the party has quick and easy ways of getting out of this...hence the lack of worry. =)

Hate to be that guy, but depending on how RAW DM Red wants to play this, that may not work.

Video explaining why. Guy's got a mess of them and they're all pretty good.

Short version is that it target creatures specifically, not just anything.

I'd allow it because this seems like an oversight, and maybe make it a single target spell to compensate, but that's just me.

Ohhh I like this video I'll keep that in mind for other games I m in.

Just the weapons. Can't imagine that the cultists here see you guys as too much of a threat to want to completely strip you. Even Leosin is still dressed, but I could see them taking your robes.

I agree that acid splash having to be used on a creature and nothing else seems like an oversight. Can't see why it wouldn't affect the environment around you when fire spells do.

I guess that is magic for you.

Okay, so I have a few ideas:

1) We try the cliffs and climb them as quickly as possible after grabbing our gear.

2) We sneak through the tents or behind them and try out luck sneaking out in the dark.

3) We take a hostage and hope they are at least organized enough to hesitate to avoid killing their captain.

4) Set fire to the leader's tent then break while everyone's distracted by that.

Just wanted to let you know our DM is currently away for the week so stay tuned until his return.

Will do, and happy Thursday to you!


I'm back now. Thanks for your patience, and I hope you enjoyed the holiday. Looking to get us moving again sometime today.

No problem. I have enjoyed it. Looking forward to seeing how this shakes out. :)


I'm wondering if James is away. I'd hate to have to bot him for something like this. You still with us, James?


Male Probably human Computer Scientist 1/ Character Synthesizer 20/ Crazy 99

He's been busy with real life from what he said in another game I'm in with him.


Thanks for letting us know. What do you guys think he'd do in a situation like this? Eldritch Blast Langdedrosa and attempt to flee up the cliffs?


Male LG Human Fighter 2 (Calishite) AC: 16 | HP: 14/16| Perception: 14 | Init: -2 | Saves: Str +5, Dex -2, Con +4, Int +3. Wis +2 Cha+2 | Condition: Stabilized

James Power would blast and then head off after Arianna and Eska. Agreed.

Huh? Blast and run? My favorite plan!

Raakuzedu'lon'ros was just not meant to be of this world. He did what Bahumat asked him to do. He sacrificed himself so that the others would find escape I can only hope he finds a place at the Platinum dragon's side.

Will roll up another character. I'd say introduce me back at Greenrest provided the party makes it back there.

I'll let you know who I will be playing in a separate PM, DM Red


Heh, I was just about to update, but with Arianna's post, I'd rather wait and see how Eska replies and how things naturally move with you guys meeting up in the brush. I'll check again tomorrow.

Gezz the two of you couldn't just make this easy for me ;P

GM waiting with bated breath over the Eska-Arianna bonding post lol.


The trip will take about 7 hours following the same route as before, so we will move through the night and likely arrive in the morning.

... if everything goes according to plan grins behind DM screen

I'll leave it up to the dice.


I'll keep moving us towards Greenest this weekend, just wanted to break it up into several posts!


Well team, that marks the end of Episode 2 of HotDQ. You've finally come up on a decent amount of wealth, I think. I've gotta calculate experience to see how far we're along to Level 3, but I don't think we're quite there yet. Raakuze's replacement will show up soon if his handler has time to post this week :)

I've been busy myself Arianna, so don't worry about the lack of posts :) It's a busy time of year for almost everyone.

How's the sheet looking, Met-Anoi'a? No big rush.


You guys still with me? I've been in touch with Raakuze/Met and he says his sheet should be ready soon. I'm looking to start up again later this week/this weekend.

Rolling for lvl 2 hp

1d10 ⇒ 8


I finally got around to tallying up experience, and you're all only 10 experience short of a level up. Rather than have to interrupt the adventure with a level up once we start up again, you can go ahead and level up to level 3. Roll for HP here.


Re: Eska's powered up dragon fang, did you mean just adding a mundane chain and tether so that it could be used at range? What did you mean by arcane focus? We'll need to keep in mind magic items are considered rare in 5e, and are hard to find. I can see a chain being worked into the tooth for a cost.


F Half-Elf CG 3-Sorceress (Blue Dragon Ancestry) | HP 19/27 | AC 16 | Init +3 | Passive Perc 14 | Saves: Str +1, Dex +3, Con +5*, Int +1. Wis +2 Cha+6* |

Arcane focuses are "mundane" items used for spellcasters same function as a components pouch. (i started with one)

Looking to add a [mundane chain + the embed a focus] to the Dragon Fang.

The outcome of which would allow me to "drop" the Fang as a free action for spell casting purposes if i need to without ever losing it off my person.

Since you mentioned it if the tether can be used as a throw-retrieve as well that'd be a cool bonus. Or we can leave that till the Fang and I level up again ;p

I'll pay whatever the cost is to commission this but Arianna should have a hand in the creation to keep it inline with the RP.

Wow Arianna that was one heck of a write up thanks for that.

kinda hard to argue with a nat 20

@GM can you confirm the properties of the forged Stormfang as per the discussion above.


Wow, even if Arianna hadn't rolled a 20, a Dwarf Fortress reference tucked into that very descriptive piece would probably have made your GM give you a bonus either way. :) Well done.

I'm fine with the properties you've defined above, Eska: Dropping the fang as a free action, and being able to use it as a sort of boomerang. Given Arianna constructed it herself, and given your fame in Greenest, I'm not going to charge you for the raw materials either.

3rd Level Hit Points roll

Hit Points: 1d10 + 3 ⇒ (9) + 3 = 12

Whoo. And there's more than just a Dwarf Fortress reference in there. I'm curious if any fans of the early Drizzt books will spot a similarity to another forging scene. And Galadriel was a cheap-wad. Only three hairs? Arianna used most of hers for this gift. :P

I'll have Arianna leveled over the weekend. I'm debating on Lore or Valor for her college. Either fits her, but I'm not sure which fits better.


I could see Raakuze/Met-Anoi'a potentially picking up on that Drizzt reference..

How's the level up looking like on your side, James?


Male Dwarf NG Champion Fighter 3 |AC:16| HP:17/34|Passive Perception:14|Init +1| Saves-Str +3, Dex +1, Con +4, Int 0, Wis +2, Cha 0

My leveling up has been done on my character sheet. Adjusted my HP and picked my Martial Archetype.

Decided to go with Lore. Arianna should be all up to date now. :)
