In reply to Arek (msg # 2):

Interrupt: when finish current adventure: could use a Limited Wish to reattune Hat of Difference from Arek to e.g. Harcourt ? So, trading wizard powers in exchange for psionicist powers.
Potentially a new Hat could also let Arek invent a new class, using the class-creation (AD&D) rules. That then could be designed to 'handshake' his GW characteristics with another game system?
[eventually integrate with a wish].

21:42, Today: Arek rolled 1 using 1d20.  Charisma check.
Critical success

21:42, Today: Arek rolled 66 using 1d100.  likelihood of daft prophecy (10%).
-unusual event
-21:51, Today: Arek rolled 49 using 1d100.  event focus table.
[Move away from a thread]
21:52, Today: Arek rolled 98,34 using d100,d100.  action, subject.
-overthrow, expectations

[Move away from a thread; overthrow expectations]
in context of critical success: the elves are friendly enough, they believe the PCs story of searching for a wishing pool, but know it is not in the forest as the PCs (might have) hoped.
They may have heard stories, but believe they're a myth?
PCs a bit dispirited, but Y/N questions confirm that this is correct place?

-welcomed by elves, more or less, but will leave and go elsewhere in kingdom.
Checking map..

22:02, Today: Arek rolled 6 using 1d16.  wood located where in place (across/down).
means second row, across 2. From here: dungeon could be either N [4 squares], E [2 squares], or to the South [8 squares], or West [1 square]


22:04, Today: Arek rolled 5 using 1d16.  Is it south? [target square, reroll 6].

Used a total of 11 questions: determined need to go to area to the East of elves (didn't expect).
Say forest on coast - need to go to island to find dungeon.
Now down to 1/16th of 1/20th of supercontinent.

size of Pangaea was close to 148,429,000 Sq. Km
Say 1/2 this (fairly large) so 75,000,000 sq km
=less than 10,000 square kilometers across. = actually 8660
square root of /16, /20 = approx. 433 miles 'across' = distance to destination (arbitrary value which we may as well declare to be arbitrarily correct).

22:15, Today: Arek rolled 45 using 1d100.  likelihood port on edge elf forest (75%).
-yes


22:19, Today: Arek rolled 70 using 1d100.  amount of water in this direction (d100%).
would mean that: if fall short of destination by more than 30%, end up in water.

22:22, Today: Arek rolled 91 using 1d100.  Possible to find wizard who can teleport to island? [40%].

3E movement rates: 48 miles/day (sailed) 70% of 433 = 303 miles. So 4 days by ship.

22:28, Today: Arek rolled 4,3,4,1 using d6,d6,d6,d6.  random encounters...[last day]

22:30, Today: Arek rolled 73 using 1d100.  pg 190 dmg salt water coastal.
Merman
# encountered 'should be based on strength of the party': 20-200, for a ship could say 30 mermen is a reasonable band (strategic advantages due to water). Check hostility: ?

22:38, Today: Arek rolled 6 using 2d10.  encounter. ['friendly']
Island: 30% of 433 miles in length? =120 miles long.

23:29, Today: Arek rolled 3 using 1d6.  islands.

23:28, Today: Arek rolled 21 using 1d100.  Likelihood is island chain (50%; d6 islands).
23:30, Today: Arek rolled 68 using 1d100.  50% chance on first (probably largest) island.
23:31, Today: Arek rolled 3 using 1d2+1.  island 2, island 3.

no information is on #1, should know - ask if #3 first.
-12 questions used.

23:34, Today: Arek rolled 34 using 1d100.  likelihood of only 1 dungeon (66%).

23:34, Today: Arek rolled 5,4,4 using d6,d6,d6.  random encounters - getting to island #3.
Note: week has passed (recharged portal use).

23:35, Today: Arek rolled 4,4 using d6,d6.  random encounters getting to dungeon.

23:36, Today: Arek rolled 8 using 1d10.  random dungeon level .

Using Telepathy to locate pool (direction to 'mine' from surface).

10:20, Today: Arek rolled 9 using 1d20.  Wis check - dimension door targeting.
10:21, Today: Arek rolled 20 using 1d20.  Con check - open door. All systems go.
10:22, Today: Arek rolled 16 using 1d20.  reroll.
10:23, Today: Arek rolled 1 using 1d20.  Dimension door! [#3]

10:27, Today: Arek rolled 3 using 1d20.  Monster or treasure in room (1-12 none)
RESULT: We [Antaeus] gets a Wish!


10:48, Today: Arek rolled 1 using 1d100.  Would Arek agree to fusion (20%).
10:47, Today: Arek rolled 41 using 1d100.  would Antaeus agree to fusion (20%).
-Arek wants to be one with Antaeus [is a telepath anyway], dwarf is creeped out by this.

10:50, Today: Arek rolled 6 using 1d20.  Would Harcourt agree to fusion (20%). [6=30%]
10:50, Today: Arek rolled 7 using 1d100.  Would Gaynor agree to fusion (20%).
10:51, Today: Arek rolled 12 using 1d100.  Would Marsa agree to fusion? [10%].

Gaynor: might assume he is better and would be sort of 'in control' of fusion.
But anyway he would be mightier.
Antaeus - is curious about the science of this, didn't roll too high, and would at least get more treasure if there are only 4 party members...

Wishing for Arek/Gaynor to become one character.
Survived system shock roll; rebuilt combined character.
Would return to Rock of Bral to convalesce; not sure he can face parents with what he's done, however. Need another 'small' world...going to Kelarn.
