All finished!

Mana section can be found under backstory!


It is incredibly difficult trying to build a PC(of any level), when the site is inaccessible, and otherwise full of f#*%ery.

That said, nearing completion.


I'm about half-way done with Phaenox. And, yes, I will be changing his avatar, lol.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Seeing as how this game was my idea (as I put out a call for a long-running Drow game), and I too have not had the posting rate, I will take some blame/responsibility for this game coming to an end.

Thanks Choon for willing to try, and taking us as far as you did. It was definitely fun while it lasted.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Phaenox listens to the back and forth, with both sides making decent points. He turns to Vicalan "Well, I believe the idea was an attempt to re-establish ourselves. Right now, we are just a band of House-less misfits. And while yes, I could go back to my life as a minor agent of my House, I am hoping to use this opportunity to raise my station. Why are you still here Vic? If I recall correctly, you're not even from this city. What's keeping you around, as surely it's not our warm companionship?"


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

How many charges are left? and it's a cure light at what level again?


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

What were our starting languages? I forgot to add them to my CS


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Vic: Spells for our base should be obtained either via magic items, or add them to your spellbook separate from your level bonus spells. Those should be spells you absolutely must have.

My suggestion would be Acid Arrow. About the only 'downfall' is it deals less damage, but not by too much (you'll get 4d4 atm vs 4d6).

If you really like Stone Discus(and it is a badass spell, especially at higher levels) maybe we can track ya down a scroll.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

"I too can aid in extracting information from him. In fact, let me start now" Activating Detect Thoughts, DC 15 to resist

Also 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (20) + 11 = 31 Sense Motive

Aaand my natural 20s continue!


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Sorry! Been caught up with my own games, and completely forgot to reply!

"Somebody's at the back door, trying to trap us inside. Don't let them close the door!" Phae says urgently, warning his allies.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Does my 30 Perception apply to that DC 28 check? Or do I need to roll another?

Also, should I be applying my +2 favored enemy to any of these Perception checks?


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

1d20 + 4 ⇒ (20) + 4 = 24 Reflex

Phae, blessed as he was by the divine power of Lloth herself, manages to casually side-step out of the way, avoiding the worst of the fireball. He scans around looking for where it came from 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (20) + 10 = 30 Perception.

With practiced ease, he spots their true target across the street.

"Are we sure that too isn't a trap?" He asks his companions as they head to the smaller shop.

Swift action, activating Judgement, choosing Healing. Fireball took me down to 15hp, fast healing puts me up to 16.

So, with my pair of natural 20s, I hereby declare Phaenox is now a favored of Llolth, and wins the game, retiring to a temple of his goddess, LOL


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Is the window Nate smashed through an entrance for us on the street still?

Hearing the alarm ring out, Phae looks to his companions. "Should we stay out here and wait for potential reinforcements to arrive, or shall we join our friends inside?"


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Also, lots of drow wares are made of spider silk, which I believe burns too.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Well, not like crates or anything, but if there's parchment around, it should be thin enough to catch fire, even if a more solid object made of the same material might not.

Also, the tar itself likely ignites as well, and depending on if it splashes or not, could create mini fires all over the place.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

"Is it just the back door that's warded? Perhaps I, and a few others, can go through the front door, and pretend we're looking to join up. Creating a distraction, and keep their attention"


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

What exactly is the place we're hitting? A tavern? Restaurant? Criminal den?


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

"First choice on any magical items, provided you're not an ass about it. Just because you're a mage doesn't mean the rest of us would not benefit from magical loot we might come across." The inquisitor says from the door.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Phae waits for Mourn to give the run down on what's been going on to Vicalan. After all, Mourn was sorta the catalyst for what was about to happen, as well as what already had.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Yea, I mean, I think it's silly to have us try again as we're drow, which you so love to point out. You said no? Fine, then we should have left you. But it's either that, or you're no longer in the game with us, excepting GM fiat, or other such handling of the situation.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

"I suppose we should go and find, what was his name again?, Vincaca? Vincolon? Vincarly? Whatever, let's go see if he want's to help us take on the Low Brothers" Phae says, offering himself to go look for their former mage ally.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Phae turns from the prisoners when Mourn enters and tells his tale. The inquisitor easily sees through the lie, but remains silent. Tis probably best this way. He'll have to try and learn the truth from Mourn later.

1d20 + 11 ⇒ (10) + 11 = 21 Sense Motive


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

"Well, that was certainly enlightening. Thank you Hakk. Seems like we might have need for our former mage friend after all." Phae says after the prisoners reveal all they need to know for the potential upcoming assault.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

I'll be leaving in a few hours for MidWinter gaming con. I will hopefully be able to sneak in some posts here and there, but if not, please do not let my absence slow you down, and bot me as needed.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

"Let's start simply. How did you end up captured, ans subsequently tortured?"

Gm, just to remind ya that I still have Detect Thoughts running. Let me know if I need any to make any extra rolls


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Phae eyes the prisoners critically "I am unsure of whom you speak, but know this: We are not your captors. However, we could potentially be your liberators. In order for us to free you, we'll need some information. Cooperate, and you'll be released. Refuse, and well, I have always been curious to see how, exactly, a Draegloth eats." He says, giving Hakk a meaningful look.

1d20 + 9 ⇒ (3) + 9 = 12 Intimidate, aid another


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

The inquisitor shows his hands are empty "Relax, I'm just here to talk. I don't even know the people who did this to you." Using Detect Thoughts

1d20 + 7 ⇒ (7) + 7 = 14 Diplomacy or 16 if you consider this a gather info check


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Wand of Cure Light? How many charges? And wands are always minimum caster level? I forget


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Phaenox walks in shortly after the two have procured the healing magicks. "Would you be so kind as to give me that wand? I'm going to question our two 'guests' here, and its much easier when they're not bleeding all over the place"


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

I tend to play my drow more cunningly evil than vicious or vile.

I also look at alignment as two component pieces that make a whole, and as such, each piece can have several different 'interpretations'.

In Phae's case, he's definitely more the selfish, personal power, type of NE vs the Daemon nihilistic type of NE.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

"You're correct, we are mostly uninjured, but I would like to have a talk with your 'guests', and I find I get better results if they aren't barely clinging to life" The inquisitor states.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Listening intently to the conversation of his companions, Phae gets an idea. "What kind of resources does your operation posses? Particularly of the magickal nature, or the restorative sort?"


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Phae activates one of his unique powers, trying to determine what most this young lady wants Using Detect Desires, DC is 15 for the third round, and I believe I learn her Cha score, not Int, on the 2nd round.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Phaenox glares at the woman. "Shall we deliver you to the cold embrace of death, or would you prefer to live? Either way works for me, really."

1d20 + 9 ⇒ (3) + 9 = 12 Intimidate, aid another


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

"I would listen to my friend here. We got a good thing goin right now, and we could always use some extra help"

1d20 + 10 ⇒ (7) + 10 = 17 Bluff, +3 if Drow, aid another for Saeras


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

As he walks in the door, Phae mutters a short prayer to Lloth, to guide and strengthen his blows. Casting Divine Favor right before he enters

Striding with purpose, the inquisitor barely notices the rabble pushing and shoving their way past him. He bats any who come to close with the flat of his blade, closing on one of his foes. He slashes out him 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10 but the crush of the people still streaming past knock his blade aside.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Ok, so I am finally all caught up on this and all my other games. Sorry it took so long, but my eyes are still sensitive to computer/phone screens so I had to take it slow in reading/replying.

As soon as I know what's still alive, I'll post an attack, if necessary.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Hey all. Currently recovering from both working New York Comic Con and getting LASIK surgery yesterday.

I'm only allowed online for brief periods, so please bot me if that becomes necessary. I haven't had a chance to catch up on game posts yet, as there's like 20+ new ones.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

When Vantrag questions them about their identities, Phaenox will once again read their minds Using Detect Thoughts again, DC 14(I miscalculated before).

As the trio pledge their vows, the inquisitor listens closely to their words, attempting to verify the truth behind them. 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (19) + 11 = 30 Sense Motive


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

1d20 + 11 ⇒ (16) + 11 = 27 Bluff to pass secret message "Imposters. Actual laborers. Joiners?

Again, I succeeded on my Bluff check, so Vantrag understands my message


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

For a good in character reasoning/rationale as to why killing the two sleeping house 'elders', one could easily argue that we who did not succumb to death or enspellment are clearly chosen by Lloth to survive and become more powerful.

As the matron and daughter are in some sort of stasis/curse/poisoned stated, they are obviously no longer favored by Lloth and must perish. Their continued existence is likely an affront to the Spider Queen.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

I'm cool with company, just don't wanna get bogged down in trading details. That's sorta goin on in another game I'm involved in, and it's kinda killin my current interest in things.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Any explosion you can walk away from...

And, no, I'm pretty sure surface elves take luxurious baths all the time. Probably using scented, flowery oils.


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Hey, if you're going to take over a house, is there a better way to do it? :P

I tried to invite you to be our new archmage, but nooo, you wanted pretty princess bath time...

Which btw, is totally something a soft surface elf would do :P


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

I have trouble taking the advice of the one person who wants nothing to do with the rest of us, and has gone off to take a bath...


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

IC, Phae will 100% support Vantrang and his cousin house.

OOC, I definitely wanna discuss our options, and make the best decision that will hopefully lead to the most fun for the the overall game as well as for the players.

Choon, are the options Vicalan posted above in line with what we actually have in game? Is there anything else you could suggest as a course of action for us?


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Phae flashes quick, rapid hand signals to his companions 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (16) + 11 = 27 Bluff to pass a secret message, disguised as Drow Sign. As I beat the DC, you all automatically understand "This is a ruse"

GM, unsure how much I can say via a complex message for Bluff, so went with what I hope is acceptable

Also going to keep my Detect Thoughts up, just to keep the window open, so to speak


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Phaenox observes the newcomers silently, noting that they apparently wear the colors of House Kewadin. However, such were easily faked, so his suspicious were raised.

1d20 + 12 ⇒ (12) + 12 = 24 Perception

1d20 + 11 ⇒ (9) + 11 = 20 Sense Motive

Also going to activate Detect Thoughts as soon as they enter. First and second round there's no save, third round Will save DC 13


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Phaenox considers his options for a few moments while the others keep talking. Finally he says "I think I would be best served coming with you Vantrag. I am well versed in dealing with our kin after all."


Male Human Sorcerer 9(Div)

Phaenox joins the others in the safe house and as they discuss their next move, he adds his thoughts "Should I accompany you, Cousin? or stay here and assist with the defense of the Matron?" He asks, addressing Vantrag.

Note, they are not actually related, but House d'Shraen is a cousin house to Kewadin
