Joana, when Dreaming Warforged dropped out you said we'd get a new player after the encounter. Do we proceed to the citadel as four or do we wait to be five again?


You will be meeting the new party member on the way to the citadel. I need to touch base with him and be sure he's ready to go.

The new PC will be a goblin, so my thought is that you guys will find him useful in negotiating with the resident goblins when you get to the citadel (my rationale for why you'll trust a random goblin on the road, apart from the metagaming fact that you know he's the new PC ;).

That's cool, to the Citadel then!

Hello folks! Thank you for the opportunity to join the fun.

I wanted to play Highness because of the challenge and raw insanity that playing a goblin well should engender. I plan to:

1. Play goblin-ness for color, avoiding those instances where it likely will cause harm to the party. Accidental side effects generated by the DM may occur.

2. Have an erratic sense of self preservation. Occasionally be heroic, more often acting like a rabid badger...except in those instances when dogs or horses are involved.

3. Have a goblin worldview, not a longshanks worldview.

4. Be an asset, not a disruption.

Cheers, ZetaGilgamesh

:p

Hello ZetaGilgamesh!

Let's get this show on the road so we can meet Highness.


Male Human

Welcome aboard! :-)


F. Castor, ZetaGilgamesh is also a doctor.


Not to spoil anything, but the Small figure is the new PC. :)

ZetaGilgamesh, if you want to describe your PC, the ball's in your court.

Well that was pure unadulterated evil Ragnhild. :p

Sorry it took me so long to post, they keep changing my shift at the lab and I end up exhausted.

I have a question. Alak stayed behind right?


Sorry, no; I wasn't explicit, but Alak is traveling with you to the citadel.

That sounds like Search to me! Anyone else want to lay claim to an Exploration activity?

Sorry bout the delay. Work has been draining and dumb.

Yep, search it is. Looks like its a secret roll by you to see if Highness spots anything pointy and sharp/shiny and distracting.


I have Christmas with one side of the family on Christmas Eve, with another on Christmas Day, and am finally seeing Jumanji the morning of the 26th. I will post in gameplay tomorrow (meant to get it done today, but I just got done wrapping presents and have to get some sleep), but I might not get a chance to post again until the 26th. Enjoyable holidays to everyone, in the meantime!

Don't worry Joana I'm sure more or less everyone has commitments these days.

Also by the way, did we divide the 200 silver pieces? Or are we keeping them together for now for party expenses and such?

I have the reward in a sack. We have to decide what to do with it.

Happy holidays to all of you!


So what's the plan? Back outside and try to track which way the goblin dogs came, or keep moving further in?


Male Elf (seer elf) Cloistered Cleric 1; HP 13/14; FP 1/1; AC 14; Fort (T) +3, Ref (T) +4, Will (E) +9; Perception (T) +7

I'm kinda confused myself. I thought we were saying to go further in and try to find the goblins through exploring the citadel.


I think some of the PCs may be talking past each other.

The party came in by what was the main entrance of Citadel Altaerein when the Hellknights used it (and found the goblin dogs in the foyer), but from the evidence they've found, it doesn't appear that the goblins use this entrance.

The options seem to be to continue via the (human) front entrance and try to find the goblins' home, or to go back outside and walk around the exterior of the citadel to try to find the way the goblins are using as a main entrance.

Y'all can do either one you want, but I'm not sure which option you want to choose.

I believe the majority of folks are saying they don't want to skulk thru the citadel and risk upsetting the goblins that live there if we want their help in finding the ring. So, rather than proceed thru an entrance the goblins apparently don't use, they're suggesting we go back outside and explore the exterior walls again to see if there's a "front door" we can use to meet the goblins first. Sounds like Highness is leading the way so he an serve as our diplomat.


HP 17/20; AC 18*; Fort (E) +7, Ref (E) +5, Will (E) +6; Perception (E) +6

I'm fine with following Highness wherever he goes, he would be the expert.


Male Goblin King ; HP 21/21; FP 1/1; AC 18; Fort (e) +6, Ref (e) +8, Will (e) +7; Perception (T) +5

I was thinking that since there are no tracks and they goblins and dogs don't go in and out through the front door, we should first go outside and find the entrance they use to chat with them. So out and around first. Then we may need to come back to the front door to further explore later.


All right! Sounds good to me.

Someone with Survival trained might want to use the Track exploration activity. Out of the standard Exploration activities, Investigate might also be handy if anyone has relevant Lores, as well as Scout, Search, and/or Defend.


So Highness is Searching, Jonagher and Ragna are Tracking (clearly they flubbed the first roll for the goblin dog tracks, but if you run across any other tracks as you're exploring, they're entitled to a secret check).

Ren and Shaserai, what's your exploration activity?

Is the wall crumbling enough that Highness could climb and get above the graveshell if it comes out?

Am I understanding you correctly, that you want to climb up on the pile of rubble so that you could jump on (or behind) the graveshell if it moves out in the open? If so, then yes, you could attempt that from M27.

If you are wanting to scale the wall from M27 over to 30/31, then you can tell it would be very difficult to do that successfully at your current level of expertise; the wall above the collapsed bit is too smooth to provide reliable hand- and footholds.


Male Goblin King ; HP 21/21; FP 1/1; AC 18; Fort (e) +6, Ref (e) +8, Will (e) +7; Perception (T) +5

Thanks! That's what he wanted to know.


By my reckoning, moving to M27 only takes at most two of Highness's three actions. Was he going to attempt to Climb for his third one? Or something else?


Male Goblin King ; HP 21/21; FP 1/1; AC 18; Fort (e) +6, Ref (e) +8, Will (e) +7; Perception (T) +5

I think he would scale the wall and wait for an opportunity to jump. So let him attempt that.

Quick question: Would electric arc hit both graveshells without hitting Ragna? They are kinda sorta diagonically adjacent, but there Ragna is as well so I am not sure...

It's not an area but a targeted spell, so as per my understanding it wouldn't hit Ragna.
