Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Sorry to all. Have been working nights and tonight is the last night. I haven't even looked at anything because I have been working 12 hours and driving one hour each way.

It was definitely better than unemployment, but it took everything from me all month. I didn't even see my family for Christmas.

Will be posting a real post probably Friday after I recover, if you want to still have me.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil is at 17 hp.

Fil arises from his trance taking second and third watches peacefully with Braggi. He re-memorizes the same spell list as before. He checked his gear carefully. He will wave off any attempts to heal.

Yes, we shall. This place needs cleansed of all evils within. Let is continue the hard work we have started.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

After Fil's four hour Trance, he is happy to be on watch. He can do the trance either before or after.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Sorry all, adjusting to a new job. Switching from days to nights. I may be having a bit of trouble this week, but I am still here!

It's something. Better than unemployment.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

I believe resting is wise now. I have charm person left. It has a higher DC, but it's not a damaging spell. It's a hail Mary. I will roll for cute light wounds.

cure light wand 1: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4
cure light wand 2: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (8) + 1 = 9


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil coughs as he wakes up, looking at his chest, where the Axe buried itself.

Looking over to Navith, he says "Praise Pelor you're alive. Did we get them?"

At that point he will stand up, gathering his rapier, bow, and both of the potions of healing from his backpack. He drinks one.

potion of healing: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4 At 7/23 HP

"It's not much, but I have one more. Please, make use of it, I will be careful.

Someone should search the bodies. Fil will assist with Detect Magic.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Sadly no, Fil is at -4 HP and Stable. Although Navith does know that Fil keeps potions of healing in his backpack.

I'll be using a second action point to stabilize.

Fil realizes his Gambit failed as he sees the strike coming from the Gnoll brute. He puts up a feeble defense, attempting to Parry with his rapier, but the greataxe is just too much. As the Axe hits his magical wards, the group hears an audible shatter as the Gnoll's hate gets through. Fil crumples to the floor like a pile of rags, bleeding.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

I had hoped to win with scorching ray. Here goes nothing. I am going to use one of his five action points.

Fil, glaring at the barbarian, looks to the others. He knows the danger he is in, and he has to strike.

He steps back, recalling the spell he just cast, and releases it again on the Gnoll!

Touch: 1d20 + 5 + 1 ⇒ (11) + 5 + 1 = 17
damage: 4d6 + 1 ⇒ (6, 1, 3, 3) + 1 = 14


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Well poop. I thought I had him.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil looks at the Gnoll before him.

Glowering as he steps back 5 feet, he incants the words to Scorching ray.

Touch: 1d20 + 5 + 1 ⇒ (13) + 5 + 1 = 19
FIRE!: 4d6 + 1 ⇒ (5, 4, 2, 1) + 1 = 13

If one speaks goblin, the words "you were warned" are in his stream of curses.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

I am trying to update my tag line on my phone, but it isn't working. I have 8 hp remaining. I am not in near as much danger as perceived. I have a plan.

I am fine, Priest, take care of your flock! Fil coughs as he levels his rapier at the gnoll before him, grinning the grin of the mad.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Aye, you all as well. Hug your loved ones. Enjoy your food and drink! Watch the sportsball!

(This shall be a tough one to get through for me).


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil drops his bow and draws his Rapier.

attack: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (17) + 2 = 19
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil continues his firing on Gnoll G, hoping to clear it for Musami.

precise/point blank attack: 1d20 + 2 + 1 ⇒ (17) + 2 + 1 = 20
damage: 1d8 + 1 + 1 ⇒ (6) + 1 + 1 = 8

He mutters several curses about the gnolls' lineage in undercommon.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil maintains his ranged attacks. He fires his bow at Gnoll G, missing horribly.

"So, you foul muts betray us now?"

Attack: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (2) + 6 = 8


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil continues with the above action, firing at Gnoll G, then moving 10 feet back. I am on mobile so would someone be able to move him south please?


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Once it is Fil's turn to activate, provided he is not in Melee, he will for his bow at a gnoll with a bow.

Attack left bow-gnoll: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (13) + 6 = 19
Damage: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3

"You will get one shot to stop now, or you will burn!" Fil shouts loudly.

If this is not an option, he will withdraw to a suitable firing location.

more bad news, may not be able to post tomorrow.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil speaks a bit of Goblin.

Fil becomes arrogant in demeanor, speaking goblin to the gnolls.

Yark?! ti'll het kahl know not just ended ae th'rakat tam sep moathouse. Ear tam ak kahl des

Translates as:. "Rube? i'll have you know we just ended a threat to the moathouse. Go check it out. Eat 'em if you want."

bluff: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (16) + 1 = 17


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

I thought it was a new portal exit...but confirming that the portcullis has been dropped would be handy, so yes. At worst, we come back and go to the deadly silent one, provided everyone agrees there.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil indicates the western entrance and to turn north. He casts light on Braggi's Axe.

are we ready?


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

I smell fish to the east. That seems odd, unless there is an underground stream here. To the middle door there, I believe there is nothing, or the restless dead, and that Northern passage may be our best to find our cultists or the one who locked us here, unless we want to look into the possible stream.

He looks to the others. What say you?


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil finally cyecksbtye Western passage.

Perception: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (19) + 7 = 26

"We aren't dead yet, Braggi. Have some faith.". Fil grins as he tugs at the evil eye cloak he is wearing.

I hope we make it out. This could be very bad. Fil thinks to himself as he is trying to alleviate the tension of the situation.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil will listen at each of the doorways
Perception doorway 1: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (19) + 7 = 26
Perception doorway 2: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (18) + 7 = 25


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil readies an action to cast charm person on the first human through the door and hope the livery helps them.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

"Agreed. Let us prepare for this. If the first person through is a human, though, please allow me to cast a spell on them. I will try to charm them to prevent further violence, perhaps convince them we are cultists."

Fil has prepared Charm Person today, and, if he can use it, then we might be able to bluff our way into their lair as planned, even if they have the alarms raised.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

well, they know we are here now.

Fil goes to inspect the remains. I didn't hope we didn't miss anything important in here


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

I believe the open spell would do so.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil shuffles everyone back about 40 feet due to his parents, and prepares to cast scorching ray if anything horrible jumps out of the box.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

I am unable to read the writing as I haven't prepared that spell, it is likely some form of trap. I would take caution, Zokama.

spell craft to determine school of magic: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (20) + 12 = 32

He will reveal whatever he determines with the detect Magic, but he doesn't have Read Magic memorized today.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil will detect Magic on the symbol, as well as see if he can read it.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil is back with Musami. Braggi, do you wish the light source to generate from your weapon?

If so, he casts light on Braggi's weapon, otherwise, he maintains it on his bow.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

[ooc]Provided Nothing jumps out at Braggi, fil says the following:[/b]

well, we know where she slept now. I have a feeling the less-used door leads somewhere unpleasant. I find it unlikely they use this second one, let us move quickly towards the door over there, then we take this secret door

Perception, watching for danger, arrow knocked: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (2) + 7 = 9


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Braggi's words snap Fil out his indecisive torpor.

Then let us press on. We were given the authority to empty the Moathouse of any threat to Hommlet by Lord Burne. Let us use that authority. If we run into something awful, I will teleport there to warn of evacuation, and then come back to fight along side you, or die trying to stop them.

He puts on a flaming eye cloak, and obtains a dagger and longsword from the armory.

Let's do this.

do we need disguise rolls?


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

In a metagame way, I think we can take the Moathouse, albeit with difficulty. The problem is that there is something at the bottom of it. That "thing" is the problem. It could be that the thing is the captured essence we have found, or it could be something else. What Fil is worried about is that, and his paranoia is driving him at the moment.

He has been quite harmed by the Moathouse, that clouded judgement is frightening. At the same time, what we have found is more than enough to take care of tent town and its rabble rousers.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Taking my thoughts to Discussion.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil pulls out a sheet of parchment, as well as his pen and ink. He begins copying the symbols of the banners individually.

Navith, that is my fear exactly. I shall teleport to Lord Burne, provide the information regarding the larger, the professional armory, and these symbols.. He says, holding up his drawing of the symbols of the banners.

knowing the evil of the banners, I would choose to leave them, lest our presence be revealed too early. On our way back to Hommlet as a group, we should burn them. I would be happy to provide the fire. Since I am no expert on the number of men that the larder would feed, nor the quality of weapons, would anyone like to come with as I teleport to Lord Burne?


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

After we detect Magic, to ensure safety, Fil would consider the Banners fair game, considering the need for evidence. What say the others?


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

What time of day is it?

Fil accepts a cloak. And the headband from Zokama. He can also make use of the wand if she wishes.

In our earlier spoils, there are scrolls that I have deciphered to allowe to teleport. I have two. Perhaps I could use one to confirm the information with Lord Burne and then the other to teleport back here?

Fil is blissfully unaware of the 'off the mark' teleport results.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

I do not know of a spell that could allow that, Braggi. And leaving and coming back at this point could cause them enough alarm to either flee or seek brutal revenge on Hommlet while we are here on our return trip. I believe we are on a knife's edge, so to speak.

And, realizing his misstep, especially given the dagger that tried to kill Zokama, My apologies, Zokama. No harm intended with that crass comment.[b]

Thinking further on his own words... He bows his head.

[B]Braggi, I also owe you a great apology as well. I am so focused on the threat that this horrible place is to Hommlet, my judgement is becoming somewhat clouded and my words harsh. I think I am driving everyone to madness here, but we have our proof that these are not simple bandits.

Fil does have the two scrolls of Teleportation. He could feasibly go to Lord Burne with the proof for raising an army and come back right away. I had thought of that as more an emergency use item than anything else, though.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

And we have the room of armaments, which we could use to disguise our warriors. It isn't a bad plan at all, Navith. Good call on splitting up the items, Zokama! Fil says, coming out of his stormy mood for but a moment.

Fil wants to keep the rituals safe, but has no desire to learn them.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

To Braggi:
Is that not what we are in miniature? I with my magic, you and Musami with your fighting skill, Zokama with her singing and fighting, and Navith to bless and heal, as well as show the cultists righteous fury. A larger force would have difficulty navigating through here, just as we have, and I fear for their minds.

He pauses here, genuinely uncomfortable with with what he is about to say. What I saw with Zokama... Was genuinely horrifying and would shred lesser minds. The forces at work here are greater than we know. I truly believe them to be from the Dhaerow history. And, if that is true, someone is digging up elven history and knowingly using the most evil part, more evil than the DROW, which will destroy the countryside and more if they aren't stopped. I believe it is our responsibility to get that done. Being an elf, it certainly is my responsibility. I came here seeking ways to stop the Dhaerow, not ways to destroy the world.

To Navith:
We should keep them as evidence of the cult. Maybe someone we trust will know more about them. The symbols we have seen are best shown to the Lords once our business here is that concluded.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

what hasn't been identified? Fil will follow those at +14, please feel free, GM to expedite.

Fil will wave Musami's offer of aid off. He is happy to have the offer, but it is time to move.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

What army, Braggi? That would take months to muster, and I am certain they have something new in the town spying on them. By that time, the cult will have fled. We have a chance to strike decicively and quickly here, Braggi. I would suggest using the the banners as our evidence. Even the glass could be evidence, provided no one touches it. Perhaps someone could even teleport it to a volcano and throw it into the lava.

Fil seems genuinely frustrated at the whole situation. There isn't a good way out.

And what army would do any good in a half-ruined citadel? One that would need scouted by experts, which we are fast becoming, whether we like it or not. An army would be amazing on a field, but chasing small groups like this is made for groups like us.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil stands, groggy from the experience. Zokama, I am sorry to have invaded your mind. Although I cannot say the same for the entity that also attacked you.

He frowns. Deeply in thought,rubbing his chest. I believe the slime that burnt my flesh here before was tainted by the entity that attacked Zokama. It was slightly removed from such, and I believe it was what they used to attack the Mayor if Hommlet. We have their banners. We have proof of their treacherous behavior. But we have to eliminate this cult now.

His shoulders slump, he is obviously exhausted, but he doesn't want to stop. I believe they are trying to open a portal or summon those demons that the Dhaerow fled from all those years ago. I shall endeavor to get more information on those demons, as safely as possible.. He begins rubbing his head and then his face subconsciously as he says the last part.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil casts Detect Thoughts and focuses on Zokama. Can you hear us? Let us get her away from this room, and that glass, quickly.

Fil begins dragging her into the prior room's. Speaking as he goes.

This cult is dabbling in demons and something that deals in corrupted elements, Or symbols of such. Something that even the Dhaerow were terrified of. I cannot recall the details, but an enclave of the Dhaerow chose to flee the underdark rather than face these demons! We have to help her resist somehow! Musami, don't let anyone touch the glass until I examine it further! Someone give me a hand.. not built for dragging people over ogres.

Fil is hoping to confirm that Zokama is still in her head, so to speak, and no additional presences are there from the glass.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Makes perfect sense to me. The reskins, as it were, are not a problem for me. They add flavor to your world.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil is looking for any ambient magic or other things that will be jumping out at the party.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

All: I am sorry for my disappearance. The past few days have been a one-two punch for me and my family. I lost my job last Thursday. On Monday, my Paternal Grandmother was diagnosed with Terminal bone marrow cancer.

So yeah, I have had a bit of a lousy week. My apologies for disappearing. Thank you GM for keeping Fil in place with my plan for his combat. I am helping with care while unemployed, in addition to looking for work.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil attends his shock. His utter disbelief. He pulls two silver coins out of his pouch and places them over the dead priestess' eyes. He then casts Detect Magic. And begins scanning the room slowly, taking in every symbol, looking for meaning or a potential way to defeat tye hidden cultists.

Will save: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (12) + 7 = 19
Perception: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (13) + 7 = 20
Knowledge Planes (for worm): 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (15) + 8 = 23
Knowledge Planes or Religion for cult origin from symbols: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (13) + 8 = 21
Knowledge History from any historical significance Fil may be aware of with the new info: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (5) + 8 = 13

If he becomes aware of the cause of the will save

Spoiler:

Fil will rush the group out if it is a mind control type effect, then looking through everything personally himself.


Male High Elf Wizard 4 HP: 23 AC: 13. Mage Armor 17

Fil intends to clear the way here.

Fil casts one of his prepared Scorching Rays.

Ranged Touch: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 25
confirm Critical: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10
Damage: 4d6 ⇒ (3, 1, 5, 2) = 11

critical damage if confirmed: 4d6 ⇒ (3, 2, 5, 6) = 16

If this does the Zombie the doorway in:

Spoiler:

Get to the one organizing this! They are the threat!
