Perhaps a certain Moon, from a past campaign

That was a lot of fun until it died. :(


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens puts his hand on Ta'ruk's shoulder.

"I'll go. You went through the mists, after all. I should take this risk," Ravens says. "I'll be right back."

He jumps into the portal.

HP: 75/75

Spell Effects:

Gr. Longstrider = 9 hours
Magic Vestment = 9 hours
Wand of CMW (32/50 left)


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens follows Ta'ruk somewhat disappointed.

"What happened? What was beyond the mist?"

1d20 + 15 ⇒ (19) + 15 = 34 Perception


Male Human (Varisian)

"Good talk, Simon."


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens follows Simon.

"Yeah, this is the right call in listening to me. Simon, you seem like a bright fellow...how ever did you end up here?"


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens watches, wondering if now is a good time to go through the mists.

"Don't we want to go check on the lich again? We had to run away so fast, I bet a thorough search would turn up the book."


Male Human (Varisian)
Ta'ruk wrote:
"Well I didn't find the book on that lich's body and I don't see our welcoming committee arriving so I think we are still stuck here. Say, can I get hit with one or two shots from that wand, Ravens?"

Ravens gives a gander at Ta'ruk before eventually deciding to tap him twice with the wand.

2d8 + 3 ⇒ (4, 5) + 3 = 12 healing
2d8 + 3 ⇒ (4, 2) + 3 = 9 healing

Ravens spends some quiet time to himself during the night, reflecting on life and unlife, on himself and his companions.

"So, no book, huh? Just a bunch of measly scrolls? Shall we get these back to our captors then? Boy, are *they* going to be disappointed that they let us off for this junk," Ravens states.

"How do we summon them, anyway, now that we're done?"


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens grabs one of the potions and quaffs it.

2d8 + 3 ⇒ (4, 7) + 3 = 14 healing

And taps himself a few times.

2d8 + 3 ⇒ (2, 7) + 3 = 12 healing
2d8 + 3 ⇒ (2, 1) + 3 = 6 healing
2d8 + 3 ⇒ (5, 5) + 3 = 13 healing

Wand 34/50; hp 70/75--should be full after night's rest.

"Ah yeah, that hits the spot," Ravens says. "Are you sure we don't have the book? I totally forgot we wanted to get a book. Huh."

Ravens scratches himself.


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens runs and runs, once outside, he collapses, sucking in the plane's air.


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens wants to pound the lich into lich dust, but instead, with the shaking of the walls, runs out through the gas...he will stop when it's clear that the ceiling is not in threat of imminent collapse.

Does he turn or look to make sure others are coming and okay? No. He's evil, see? E-v-i-l.


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens, in the safety of his air bubble, laughs at those taking poison damage.

He looks ready for another smashy-smash with his club.

Spell Effects:

AC 23; hp 25/75
Gr. Longstrider = 9 hours
Magic Vestment = 9 hours
Air Bubble = 9 minutes from when he cast it.

Round 3

Ravens moves up and again swings from his heels.

1d20 + 12 + 1 - 2 ⇒ (20) + 12 + 1 - 2 = 31 to hit; (haste, PA)
1d6 + 9 + 6 ⇒ (1) + 9 + 6 = 16 damage.

Edit: Pot Crit
1d20 + 12 + 1 - 2 ⇒ (7) + 12 + 1 - 2 = 18 to hit; (haste, PA)
1d6 + 9 + 6 ⇒ (4) + 9 + 6 = 19 damage.

AC 23; hp 25/75
Gr. Longstrider = 9 hours
Magic Vestment = 9 hours

Male Human (Varisian)

Round 2, AOO

Ravens swings from his heels.

1d20 + 12 + 1 - 2 ⇒ (15) + 12 + 1 - 2 = 26 to hit; (haste, PA)
1d6 + 9 + 6 ⇒ (5) + 9 + 6 = 20 damage.


Male Human (Varisian)

Round 2

Ravens takes 50 cold, blocking the damage with his lungs and allowing his fingers to frostbite. Way to move out of the way, Ravens.

Ravens, not wanting to retreat in terror for the third time, (the initial gargolye, the gas a moment ago) charges in with his sweet ass wooden club.

1d20 + 12 + 1 - 2 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 12 + 1 - 2 + 2 = 15 to hit; (haste, PA, charge)
1d6 + 9 + 6 ⇒ (6) + 9 + 6 = 21 damage.

Spell Effects:

AC 23; hp 25/75
Gr. Longstrider = 9 hours
Magic Vestment = 9 hours
Wand of CMW (37/50 left)


Male Human (Varisian)

Round 1, Init Goodside

Ravens, upon hearing the voice, moves up and draws his club as he does so. Too far away to move and strike, Ravens holds his position. He scans the area for traps before rushing in.

1d20 + 15 ⇒ (13) + 15 = 28 Perception

Gr. Longstrider = 9 hours
Magic Vestment = 9 hours

Simon Demarkus wrote:
"It doesn't appear to be harmful beyond the fear effect. If you keep trying you'll probably make it through eventually. "

Ravens coughs in his air bubble.

"Well, since we don't have a way forward, Simon, we'll just be sucking mist until we get rid of these webs."

Ravens takes his crowbar to the webs, trying to see how sticky and strong they are.


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens watches Simon scream into the mists rather than scream out of it.

"What are we going to do with the rest?" Ravens asks. "If we don't have fire, shall we go with the clubbing plan?"

P.S. Met DMTFY today. I think he only mostly hates me after one slot. And he seems like a nice guy. He has real life friends.

Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens looks at Jeneva as she enters, then smiles as she runs screaming.

He is amused to then watch her return, be-masked and blowing gas a few minutes later when he exits to report.

"I saw a hallway headed south that is covered in webs...but not your garden variety webs, these seem to be made of force," Ravens says. "I found no way to diminish the gas, but if one of us has sufficient fire, we might burn it away. Otherwise, I should club you all out, then drag your unconscious forms though, if you'd like..."and not slit your throats and steal all your gear. No, totally not.

HP: 75/75

Magic Vestment = 9 hours

Male Human (Varisian)

Raven, when he returns, will act like nothing unusual happened.

1d20 - 2 ⇒ (7) - 2 = 5 Bluff

Sense Motive > 5:

Something totally happened. And Ravens ran away at top speed, crying like a shepherd vs. an owlbear.

When he gets back to the gas, he will use a Pearl of Power to recall Air Bubble, cast it, and enter the mists.

He will look for a way to disarm or stop the mists.

1d20 + 15 ⇒ (11) + 15 = 26 Perception


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens runs and runs, screaming the entire way.

He stops before Ta'ruk stops, and, for that, he is pleased.

Looks like others will have to push for a while. Ravens will be joining Jeneva in the back.

HP: 75/75

Spell Effects:

Gr. Longstrider = 9 hours
Magic Vestment = 9 hours
Wand of CMW (37/50 left)


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens declines to stop Ta'ruk, knowing that he wasn't going to run far (the climb was going to slow him down). Instead, Ravens goes into the mist to see what scared him so badly.

What a coward.

1d20 + 10 ⇒ (11) + 10 = 21 Fort Save

Will move Ravens when I get to computer.

Skiron follows.

Ravens watches Skiron following him, wondering why the man never leads.


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens tosses down the final pews boards and grunts, having done all the hard work while others watched.

He climbs down slowly, carefully (taking 10), following Ta'ruk.

If nothing happens with the tossed wood, Ravens goes into the mist.

Ravens points out the door at the bottom of the pit.

"Strange place for a door, eh?" Ravens says, putting his hand on Ta'ruk's back and totally not thinking about pushing Ta'ruk onto the spike, totally not.


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens goes back to yell down the hall.

"Hey you...,"chumps"...guys! I found a door!"

Ravens looks down at the spikey pit and grumbles.

Does Ravens think he could move some of the pews from the chapel here to protect from the spikes?


Male Human (Varisian)

As no one else has anything or is pushing anything...

Ravens goes back and jumps through the mists. He holds his breath, if that matters or helps.


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens waits to see what the solution might be.

"I have my rope if it is needed," Ravens offers.


Male Human (Varisian)

Uh, Ravens isn't really a riddle guy...and I'm not sure I can figure it out either. If no one else has a way forward...

Ravens looks around, then walks back to the room with the mist. He prepares again to jump through.

"No better ideas, eh?"

Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens recoils (and probably recoils from the blood on) his silken rope.

Oh yeah, that's there. That dude had a choice to cut the rope or his...ah nevermind. He chose poorly.

Ravens looks around again after stuffing the rope back in his 'sack.

"Nothing over there, huh? Maybe this is a wrong turn? What other options do we have?" Ravens asks. "Oh yeah, the mist. Gotta love the mist option."


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens picks his nose with his free hand, keeping only one on the rope carrying Simon.

"Huh?" is the only word that comes to his mind as the mantaflyers attempt the inverse flight of Icarus.


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens holds the rope, totally not considering 'accidentally' letting go when Simon is in a precarious spot, allowing him to fall into whatever burns below. No, Ravens would never 'accidentally' fail to hold the rope and let his 'friend' fall.

No, not Ravens. Ravens would never 'accidentally' murder anyone.


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens moves up and stands by the door.

"You want a rope? This looks dodgy, at best," Ravens asks, pulling out some silken rope from his 'sack. There are blood stains in several sections of the rope.

"I can hold you if you'd like," Ravens offers, totally happily.

1d20 + 4 ⇒ (10) + 4 = 14 Bluff

Sense Motive > 14:

Ravens doesn't really care if you want the rope or not, he just wants to seem like he's helping.


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens, just a bit surprised, takes a few steps back as Ta'ruk proves his use.

"Good for you."

May I make a suggestion that I think would help sustain the pace and functionality of the game? Take a leaf out of this old thing's modus operandi and try to DM on the "Zork model." I think it could really help in the play-by-post forum format, which I've concluded is otherwise not the very best format for RPGs. I know it would help me; my main problem has been an inability to sustain a clear focus on what is and what could potentially be going on.
I know that thread, what specifically is the Zork model?

And I'm curious to what you think the problem is and why that model would fix it.


Male Human (Varisian)

What is the door made of?

Ravens examines the door.

1d20 + 15 ⇒ (3) + 15 = 18 Perception


Male Human (Varisian)

Sorry, not-sorry. I'm stopping pushing for a while. It's getting ridiculous. Either we all take some risk or we don't.

Ravens scratches his ass, looking about.


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens smiles as Simons paves the way for him. He goes to open the next door.

"Thanks," Ravens nods dryly.

Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens goes to open the other door, certain what they seek is just behind it.

"Hard to figure why the Devils dont come here."

On phone again, sorry.


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens waits, eying the rest of the group and pouting.

How long is this going to take?

Ravens itches himself.


Male Human (Varisian)

After putting away his crowbar, Ravens opens the door and goes through.

Won't be able to move myself on map for a few hours. Phone posting.

"Nice work, Ta'ruk," Hektir says, following.

Ravens begins to rip out the boards, using his crowbar.

"Well, I didn't expect to be entertained down this hall, but I also didn't think I'd be board," Ravens quips.

1d20 + 6 + 2 ⇒ (17) + 6 + 2 = 25 Str Check
1d20 + 6 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 6 + 2 = 20 Str Check
1d20 + 6 + 2 ⇒ (13) + 6 + 2 = 21 Str Check


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens waves his arms, jumps up and down, and loosens his neck, getting ready to jump through the Misty Doorway of Certain Doom.

After stretching out both legs, Ravens readies to take the leap of doom...

Ok, Ravens, you got this. Ain't nothing...on three...

ONE! Ravens leans toward movement, then shifts his body back, rocking for....
TWO! Ravens again rocks forward, then back, preparing to leap boldy...and....

"Wait! What was that about a false wall, Simon?!" Ravens straightens up, giving Simon 'the Eye'. "Why didn't you mention that before!? What are you trying to pull? Where is this false wall?"

Ravens scowls at Simon.

Ta'ruk, I think that was a different spot. Ravens tried to bypass the ring-locked door.

If Ravens suggests in character to wait until the next day, Ta'ruk can wait. He's more concerned about poisonous gas than alignment changes. Evil always pushes it's way to the front.

Well, sure...Ravens wasn't really worried about all-of-the-sudden turning 'good' or, uh...less neutral. And, uh, becoming more of an idiot really isn't a worry either. ;)

Hey quick question everyone what is and what is not working for you so far?

I think I've been vocal with what I've wanted to see DMTFY, and, more importantly, you've responded well every time.

That we've made it this far is a testament to your skillz, and they are mad.

I know I've been quiet for awhile. I've been traveling this weekend. I'll post tomorrow. Earlier in the week, Ta'ruk offered to go into the room if Ravens cast air bubble on him. That offer will still stand when I post tomorrow.

Yeah, I don't have another gassy thing right now. If we rested, he could...or if someone had a pearly thing.

I'll go through, unless you just want to...or we can follows Jeneva's suggestion that no one seems interested in doing, which is another round of searching for other ways through.

We'll see if anyone picks up and actually posts to do this. Or we rest, I dunno.


Male Human (Varisian)

If the alternative is doing nothing or dying, Ravens will choose dying. I'll go through in a while, because football. Maybe someone will have inspiration.


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens looks at the rest of the group, a evaluating look on his face...as if he were judging each of them that he can see.

"Fine, I'll go. One small step for me, one giant leap back to the Abyss," Ravens says. He begins to prepare himself for the jump, getting his shield ready, and drawing his club.

He checks his bandoliers and prepares to step through the misted doorway...

Giving time for others to suggest actions or stop Ravens...or send him through DMTFY, whatever works.

"Eat this."

Ravens eats, and nods his head at Skiron in brief thanks as he strength returns. He waits to see what happens to the twiddlebugs.

Thanks Skiron. While Ravens won't/can't show much appreciation, I can. :)


Male Human (Varisian)

Ravens shakes his head at Ta'ruk from inside the safety of his bubble. He looks at the rope trick'd enclave and then back at Ta'ruk.

"Traps reset? That may happen, but that's no reason not to rest if we need it. It doesn't matter none," Ravens spits...on the ground. See? He spits carelessly! He's evil!

"I'll rest or I'll press on. T'would be better to send something else..." Ravens eyes flicker to the summoner of summoning things. "...through instead of us. To see if it will return."

Air Bubble 9/min.

Male Human (Varisian)

Ooh, thanks Ta'ruk. My memory doesn't go back that far. I'm sure I can memorize Elemental Body and go gliding, right?

Ravens grumbles and pouts as he remembers what he remembered.

Thanks, Obama!


Male Human (Varisian)

I remember this from what? How did we learn this outside of failure of the spell? Also what else is going to fail? Passwall? Earth glide?

Ravens grunts as he spell fails.
