Attempt #2
Waiting for PSPs to be fully recharged. Assuming pool beneficial - waiting to take full party through since can't get back out except with teleport, as yet, which could be improved if can find exactly how to get in/out of cavern.
So Antaeus, Garek and Harcourt return via DD.
-going back; exploring third tunnel (sword room).
Total YN used: [4/10]
Used Metarcade, failing CON roll. Also needs to make SPD roll in original rules.

15:05, Today: Garek rolled 8 using 2d6.  Spd reroll [human].

15:15, Today: Garek rolled 21 using 1d100.  Hero sword - 25% chance vanishes.

dimension door back: hero sword as sentient thing (representing wizard?) - knows someone isn't really a hero...[party, using magic]..evaporates.
Both swords gone i.e. cannot use either to get stat gains.

15:18, Today: Garek rolled 12 using 1d20.  dimension door power roll.
-back in original complex. Checking out third fountain.

[not likely to be particularly vulnerable to allergies due to small size - 10 should be enough. Produces Great Frog - teleported away]
Y/N - teleported to same spot ?

15:35, Today: Garek rolled 12 using 1d20.  Total healing - vs. allergy effect.
counts as 'or whatever'. Other PCs return with dimension door to find him on the ground near the fountain, trying to counter the effect of the allergy (takes an hour). Gets no bonus from the pool.
[attempting to use 1 disease salve, no effect. - not biological agent]
Gaynor - same biologically so would probably also auto-fail.

15:47, Today: Garek rolled 10 using 1d20.  teleport back to inn room.

Leaving decadent Khazan;

12:44, Today: Garek rolled 4 using 1d7.  central casting event (between adventures).
Harcourt
12:51, Today: Garek rolled 5 using 1d8.  final frontier event.
"If adult, the character enters military service."
Treat as - being pressed into military service in Khazan. Teleported out and definitely we are leaving town for awhile.

-recharges Y/N questions.
using planar travel to go to library-moon (where found info for building the Ring of Fortitude).

12:39, Today: Garek rolled 85 using 1d100.  likelihood of useful book on the Deck (80%).
ouch. If there was a book here, has been borrowed - library itself is OK.

Using Y/N question to determine if anything there - N.
Must be other libraries - see if have heard of.

12:54, Today: Garek rolled 2 using 1d20.  Int check - heard of other libraries.
12:54, Today: Garek rolled 92 using 1d100.  70% - other library has Deck info Y/N.
12:55, Today: Garek rolled 68 using 1d100.  Library #3 (since got  a '2' to know of any) - 60%.

Alternative plan - travel to world (specifically) which has a library giving a knowledge of the Deck. Unable to target any small moons - whole planet.
12:58, Today: Garek rolled 8 using 1d100.  Boccob's library - 20%.
[clearly unusual request - limited to D&D type worlds - he'd definitely have so the magic goes 'ah screw it' - iconic 2E location]
13:02, Today: Garek rolled 2,84 using d12,d100.  clock direction and distance out (%).
Somewhere in Realm of the Norms (not far from Tvashtri's Realm).

The Well of Urd, realm of the Norns.
[no data]

Aesir
The Norns - Fate
'the well of souls' consider part yggdrasil - men and powers seek fortunes from the fates



13:24, Today: Garek rolled 75 using 1d100.  Likelihood of norn intervention (6% - 1% per level).
-not particularly interested


-13:50, Today: Garek rolled 85 using 1d100.  modrons 1%, walking castle 3%.

13:51, Today: Garek rolled 34 using 1d100.  vikings (33%).
-signs of vikings, no actual vikings

13:51, Today: Garek rolled 5 using 1d6.  random encounter.
[e.g. hostiles/fiends]

13:52, Today: Garek rolled 26 using 1d100.  distance - petitioner habitation.
dead Neutrals and vikings. Asking for information (Cha roll)


13:54, Today: Garek rolled 17 using 1d20.  Cha roll. -
-barely civil to Marsa; more cordial to Lynn ('are you an angel'?)

At 840 ish miles out - planar travel (Gate) malfunctioning as equivalent to L9 spell ?
Actually conduits normally appear up to 6th ring, BUT wish doesn't work - so destination plane is probably random.
Inhabitants (Level 0 vikings) can tell the PCs of Boccob / Oghma's library.
?enough to teleport there ?

14:00, Today: Garek rolled 9 using 1d20.  teleport to library (#2).

14:00, Today: Garek rolled 19 using 1d20.  Antaeus - teleport to library.
(-5 to power check - gets there with 1 bag/other PC - this would take awhile).
Taking - Garek.

14:02, Today: Garek rolled 6 using 1d20.  Charisma check - reaction roll.
angelic servants not unfriendly, just visiting the library. No fighting with other denizens (including fiends).
3-4 days ferrying PCs (psionic teleport) in bags


using binary chop with YN question: 17 questions applied to library in sectors cuts down by >1:200000, ie. 5 books to search per million in the library. Should easily find book wanted.

15:06, Today: Garek rolled 69 using 1d100.  Learn spell - copy.
15:05, Today: Garek rolled 6 using 1d20.  Wis check - planar travel offline.



Spending 1000 GP to access library, 500 GP for copy spell, 250 GP to get spell copied.
Random plane (OK), rather than stay there going back to Khosht for a week.

How many different characters can draw cards from one deck of many things?
   Up to four cards may be drawn from the deck; a party may divide these
draws among PCs in any way seen fit, except that card draws and results may
not be shared.  Any potential drawer must state how many cards he plans to
draw before the first card is drawn, and he must stick to the decision once
drawing begins (see the DMG, pages 142-143).

The Plan
13-card deck; using Hat of Difference (wildmage) to get 50% chance of correct draw.
Antaeus: Throne, Moon (+1 Con, additional level limits)
Harcourt: Star
4th draw - : aim for Moon; (probably would be going for one of prior options again).
Gaynor most likely to survive a Lesser Death ?

Finding a deck: currently 0 Yes/No questions!
Needs to 'wait until next session' ?

18:29, Today: Garek rolled 11 using 1d100.  gaining indications of where deck might be found?
18:45, Today: Garek rolled 66,3,8 using d100,d100,d100.  event focus, action, subject.
'PC negative, neglect, enemies'
-the tome DEFINITELY indicates where a Deck might be found. It presents it as 'up for grabs'; actually, enemies are present (since the PCs have no existing enemies really).
-would note the decks originate in Concordant Opposition.
location - random plane being generated (Hornung's Random Dispatcher table)

19:00, Today: Garek rolled 27 using 1d100.  Random plane - Hornung's Random Dispatcher table.
The Beastlands

19:10, Today: Garek rolled 5 using 1d6.  planar layer 1 (1-3), 2 (4-5), 3 (6).
2nd layer. Why there?

Thoth (Boccob) estate looks to be near rim - Plane Shift would be effective.
Manual of the Planes access table.

Decks - taken by adventurers, or since is directly adjacent to Concordant Opposition likely to be dropped there directly.

21:45, Today: Garek rolled 24 using 1d100.  13 card deck (75%).
Cards could be taken to Beastlands as a result of a card draw, except that the cards vanish when all used. 13-card deck (no Donjon or Talons) - could move with the Void card, or from Flames being drawn (outer planar enmity); or Throne (keep on outlands) then Death before could finish a 3rd or 4th draw. Or as a result of a wish (Moon).

Treatise - may have come from the beastlands, but more likely a copy of a prime material text.
-to be comprehensive, would be based on various case studies. One happens to mention someone who went to the beastlands, plus their deck [say Void]. Divination revealing plane of imprisonment (maybe Contact Other Plane, or wish from someone rolling Moon beforehand).
-vision of specific location seen (but enemy not listed!).

2nd layer - Brux.

22:07, Today: Garek rolled 5 using 1d8.  closest realm.
Reastweal, home of the Indian deity Puchan.
Legends and Lore - resembles aged itinerant with golden lance. God of travellers. NG, benevolent (it is an upper plane).
-imprisonment; can assume that the character captured was evil (NG).  Usually in conflict with Kali. Story of a brigand who stole a magical deck of cards from a traveller, but taking a card became a husk.

22:22, Today: Garek rolled 84 using 1d100.  Plane shift spell failure.
- functions OK
22:23, Today: Garek rolled 74 using 1d100.  distance off-target.
Within 100 miles of target visualized [10 at 60; 61-90 is up to 100 i.e. add 3 miles per % - 10+[14*3] = 52 miles off target.

22:34, Today: Garek rolled 90 using 1d100.  wilderness - forest.
will-o-wisp. Replacing with 91 (wolves); giant, double HD with -1 to AC.
Say # equal to party (7). Want to eat PCs (which is OK in their opinion).


22:38, Today: Garek rolled 71 using 1d100.  50% party size 25%, equal to party 21-75, 76+ double.
Treat 7 as a range of 5-10; say 10 wolves.

22:39, Today: Garek rolled 14 using 1d20.  d20 Charisma check (-6).
'half of us are made of metal, you really want to eat us?'
'unnatural things..do not belong here!'
[on the edge - reroll Charisma check - Intimidation fireball]

22:41, Today: Garek rolled 7 using 1d20.  Cha roll - assist (Harcourt).

*wolves vanish (probably could've taken. 1 charge used).
Beginning aerial recon to find the tower described in the book.

Assume it forms some sort of dungeon (though in the beastlands). Not in Punana's own palace.
Imagining a pit in which spirit of the brigand is treated like a petitioner - has been converted to form of great tiger (represents feeding on other men) down a pit. Provided enough sustenance to survive (magically). Jailors to keep him there - celestial creatures that live nearby? Likely several devas (note Indian name!). Not concerned with his stuff, just with preventing him from being released.

22:49, Today: Garek rolled 8 using 1d20.  Cha roll - negotiate with devas.
'sure you can have it'.
May have to fight giant tiger to get it.

22:53, Today: Garek rolled 88 using 1d100.  % spellcasting (10%).-no.
HD 10+10, AC 5, d4+1/d4+1/d10, rear claws 2d4/2d4 (if both forepaws hit)
22:58, Today: Garek rolled 66 using 10d8+10.  Hit Points.

Can argue that the Deck down there was stolen, in the first place.

Petitioners - should reform if killed, so that's OK
07:05, Today: Garek rolled 85 using 1d100.  multiple pits - 25% chance of hundreds.
[100-85=] 15 prisoners - the 'more enemies' they spoke of. The devas probably can't remember which pit is which.
Clairvoyance ?

07:19, Today: Garek rolled 66 using 1d100.  clairevoyance (incense) 66%. - vision of future.

right on edge - complication - also a double. Using the Mythic emulator for complication.
07:20, Today: Garek rolled 18,86,11 using d100,d100,d100.  event focus, action, subject.
NPC action, passion, emotions - see tiger doing something they didn't expect (emotional).

09:47, Today: Garek rolled 90 using 1d100.  bandit leader male (75%).
! Female, fits emotional action. Unusual mercy/act of love seen toward a (male) party member. Call her Vasri.

10:02, Today: Garek rolled 2 using 1d7.  interacting with - random character [Gaynor]
-usually getting all the loves...

Vision of Garek using telepathy - Doh! [tiger can probably also talk]
"You're up big guy. I saw you doing the scrunchy face thing you do when you're trying to use telepathy".
Of course that would find the right target/pit - meaning the event definitely, relates to finding them.
"Please help me! - sensing genuine contrition and that they're a woman.
Devas - would be upset if they take her.

Negotiating telepathically; whole party goes down on flying carpet.
Grab & run - through portal - grabbing Deck (probably only physical possession here).
Vasri - not actually a petitioner (brought here by Void card) - so can leave the plane.
Assume deck is there - if any YN questions left would've confirmed - and/or relatively recent.

EDIT LATER:
Say 1 week in Library of Boccob [7 days] before plane shift.
Total elapsed, 65 days of 81. 16 days to go before travel backward.

Destination plane [a small world with D&D physical laws?] - back to Kelarn for another 2 weeks, 2 days.

In kelarn - announce they are drawing 4 cards.
Using Hat of Difference (Marsa's) - drawer wears, set to wildmage (50% chance of correct card).

Tiger disapproves.

Physical threats -so unless character has to do, give to toughest character.
Picking 4 cards
Garek - picking first - Moon, to benefit Antaeus (owes him 2 wishes)
Antaeus - tries for Throne
Harcourt - tries for Star. Giving him the two +2 axes in case !
#4 - probably cycles back to 1,2 or 3.

wishes would be:
'that Antaeus would be fitter and healthier'
'that his psionic potential is raised above the dwarven norm (without his race being changed).
-and again if have a fourth wish
retain 1 for emergency.

Keep location - if gotten: ?

Existing places - of note:
Rock of Bral - possibly ineligible for keep
New asteroid in Spelljammer universe. Near the Rock gets too much traffic to e.g. store money there- and isn't that useful (except to teleporting members of the party).

-installing keep in the [second] attoplane - theoretically in the Mystaran multiverse.
This would make it a mini-demiplane. Enlarges; money that was floating loose instead moves to a treasury room.

Only access by planar travel - it does however make a much more convenient target for planar travel (compared to the Rock). Need to install a permanent Gate from there to the 3-P dimension [100K].


13:52, Today: Garek rolled 63 using 1d100.  Concordant Opp (10% full/10% half).
[e.g. damage minimization] - no. Normal D&D rules.

Giving characters 2000 XP each for adventures (=arena and this)

17:55, Today: Garek rolled 96,57,41 using d100,d100,d100.  event focus, action, subject.
NPC positive,create, advice.
-village of non-humans. Antipathy to humans - sees party as non-human, want to help the party.
Race of village - mixed or single-race?

Note - homeland probably warm climate. Forest but likewise warm - basically Dark Continent (adjacent as '2' rather than '1' on continent check, similar latitude).

17:59, Today: Garek rolled 2 using 1d20.  monsters table CC - globs.
18:00, Today: Garek rolled 7 using 1d100.  75% - reroll 'glob' result.
18:00, Today: Garek rolled 9 using 1d20.  monster table.
-'creatures of great evil, such as demons or devils'
Tiefling village; reveres Juiblex.

18:03, Today: Garek rolled 12 using 1d20.  Charisma roll.
See PCs as fellow monsters, mostly.

18:05, Today: Garek rolled 52 using 1d100.  can get map of continent (60%).
If PCs can stay here - can send Antaeus to retrieve body. Likely to see vile rituals with captured humans if they do [say 5% per day]. Can't take tiger in bag (too large).
language problems likely - needs Marsa or Garek; Marsa best choice as human.

18:21, Today: Garek rolled 18 using 1d100.  size of community - 10% city, 11-50 town, 51+ village. - quite large town, definitely has a temple to Juiblex.

18:24, Today: Garek rolled 15 using 1d20.  Teleport - Varsi home village.
18:24, Today: Garek rolled 20 using 1d20.  d20 - 2nd attempt teleport (visualisation fail).
18:27, Today: Garek rolled 7 using 1d20.  Teeleport #3 - after about hr recharging.
[70+35+35]

18:29, Today: Garek rolled 96 using 1d100.  near village (70%).
Site of Void card activation out in wilderness somewhere - described.

18:30, Today: Garek rolled 2 using 1d6.  random encounters.
-taking Garek since no humans here, just monsters.

18:31, Today: Garek rolled 39 using 1d100.  had a gang (70%).
18:32, Today: Garek rolled 10 using 1d100.  likelihood gang still there (25%).
Complicating factor - story here written in Deck of Many Things book.
How gotten that information?

Time - if happened long ago, rumours more likely to be redundant, so would be unlikely to have consisted of a 'lead'.

Possibly the book is a magical 'log book' of a single Deck of many things - magically updating where it is, but also listing past events. Copy would not have any magical powers/update further. Very weird item, likely to have moved from elsewhere on Concordant Opposition (a God of Fortune's library - basically an 'accounts' statement). Book itself being lost would explain why the Deck became lost, near the Outlands.

19:03, Today: Garek rolled 6 using 1d20.  Charisma check - seeing if took body to town to fix (-3). yes

19:04, Today: Garek rolled 7 using 1d20.  Cha roll - negotiate with bandits.
Using Garek's Cha (telepathy). Willing to help as knew Vasri ?
Also, he clearly looks pretty dangerous.
Bandits in general - restocked.


19:06, Today: Garek rolled 3 using 2d6.  distance to nearby town.
(used 2d6 not 1d6 since 'near village - no' earlier. Good roll but makes sense since bandits need people to prey on)

19:08, Today: Garek rolled 1 using 1d100.  likelihood they died in village (50%).
! Definitely didn't return with her body. REALLY don't like them there.
19:11, Today: Garek rolled 33 using 1d100.  25% chance - any idea what happened to party. - no.
19:09, Today: Garek rolled 62 using 1d100.  25% chance of problems while waiting for PSPs to recharge. [made by double - next check is free, though didn't need it]
19:10, Today: Garek rolled 3 using 1d20.  Power check - teleport to village.


19:13, Today: Garek rolled 14 using 1d100.  likelihood was killed (33%).
Yes - probably good news considering.
19:15, Today: Garek rolled 86 using 1d100.  given some sort of honourable burial - 20%.
19:17, Today: Garek rolled 46 using 1d100.  disposal in some sort of pit (50%).
19:18, Today: Garek rolled 81 using 1d100.  # of bodies in pit. [!]

19:19, Today: Garek rolled 16 using 1d20.  Charisma check with villagers (-5).
Actually fails due to being a monster even without question negs. "demon!"

Beats villager unconscious, grabs them and flies off, does a Probe.
19:21, Today: Garek rolled 10 using 1d20.  saving throw.

19:21, Today: Garek rolled 1 using 1d20.  Probe #2.

19:21, Today: Garek rolled 12 using 1d20.  Probe on villager.
learns about disposal pit for executed bandits

19:25, Today: Garek rolled 63 using 1d100.  Any distinguishing characteristics they know of on skeleton (10%).

19:25, Today: Garek rolled 62 using 1d100.  mindlink - Valri - asking about distinguishing characteristics. Nothing - is female.


19:27, Today: Garek rolled 9 using 1d100.  distinguishing features - Nasri - killed same time. Potentially a non-human (lower than 13% nonhuman percentage).
19:30, Today: Garek rolled 7 using 1d20.  Nonhuman type. [Central Casting #751 - Dwarf]

Now know are looking for a human female skeleton next to a dwarf skeleton, in the pit with 80 bodies.
19:32, Today: Garek rolled 76 using 1d100.  pit is more deep (lower 50%) or more wide (50%). - pretty wide/spread out
Likely to be at edge of town.
Sneaking back at nightfall. Possibility (encounter check) of undead monsters e.g. ghouls.
19:35, Today: Garek rolled 1 using 1d6.  encounter check.

Meanwhile..
19:36, Today: Garek rolled 80 using 1d100.  10% - evil rituals back in tiefling town.
Not for awhile.

So, ghouls.
19:37, Today: Garek rolled 3 using 1d4.  # ghouls.
[not 2d12 as that would probably destroy the town; also see later - not actually much to eat here]



Further note: roll of 01 for 'did they die' - irrecoverably dead.
Unlikely to have e.g. soul-eating execution weapon, but note that of common creatures green slime 'turns living flesh into green slime in 1-4 rounds...no resurrection possible'.
Assume the pit where the bodies are dumped is overrun with green slime - neither body is recoverable.
Would find after fighting ghouls...


22:33, Today: Garek rolled 7,7 using d10,d10.  PCs, ghouls initiative.
22:35, Today: Garek rolled 20,19 using 2d8+8,2d8+8.  damage to ghouls.

22:35, Today: Garek rolled 25,25 using d20+5,d20+5.  shortbow of speed attacks.
22:36, Today: Garek rolled 5,3 using d20,d20.  battleaxe.
[+11, AC 6 = 14 ascending]
22:38, Today: Garek rolled 37 using 2d8+24.  damage 2 axes.
Killed all three ghouls.

overall result of mission failure - bandit remains turned to slime, can't resurrect them. May be able to do something with tiger still.

22:43, Today: Garek rolled 1 using 1d6.  encounters while resting in forest nearby.
22:43, Today: Garek rolled 33 using 1d100.  angry villagers (50%).
22:44, Today: Garek rolled 8 using 1d10.  # in search party.

22:46, Today: Garek rolled 7 using 1d20.  Senses roll.
22:46, Today: Garek rolled 4 using 1d6.  hours into resting.
22:47, Today: Garek rolled 4 using 1d20.  dimension door.
22:47, Today: Garek rolled 3 using 1d6.  following 6 hours.

Avoided, rested more, attempting to beam.

22:49, Today: Garek rolled 5 using 1d20.  Teleport power check.
Teleport back to tiefling city - reporting total failure :(

Notes - consistent theme (Juiblex, green slime) - SLIME WORLD

Waiting out remaining week there before leaving.
[72 days of 81].

Finally - return to Khosht for a final week - impatient to get the exile over with...
Gate to Deathtrap Equalizer, Harcourt gets a Yuurk.
Week of high life, then return home to the Rock.

Note: 205,850 total GP value | 685,000 GP magical items in party treasure.
(mostly 2 flying carpets). 890,950 GP total.

Presuming she has a body (made of outer planes matter, the way an astral projecting character solidifies on arriving there); making her human just means a Polymorph Other.
08:54, Today: Garek rolled 80 using 1d100.  system shock.
Deducted 500 GP.

09:00, Today: Garek rolled 18 using 1d20.  Int check - mentality.
Return to original self/bandit behaviour.

09:04, Today: Garek rolled 15,8 using d20,d20.  Telepathy - noting mental change (both chars).

-notice and lock up.
09:10, Today: Garek rolled 56 using 1d100.  attempting to find - helm opposite alignment (15%).
09:11, Today: Garek rolled 78 using 1d100.  YN - helm available in Kelarn?

only 1000 GP cost. But nope (single-use although relatively common).
Heal spell - purchasing. Cures 'mental disorders caused by spells' so should work.
Heal: cost should be >1800 (scroll cost). Deducted - 1000 GP (same as a Helm of Opposite Alignment). roughly in line with 100 GP/cleric level for remove curse etc. (level-based).
-gave Harcourt (only) xp for solving as party's D&D wizard.

NOTE: can't reattempt to buy Decanter of Endless Water - rolled for this time period in thread #12.

Space
Go to - SF universe with specified condition they would 'fit in'.
Space station that's trading centre ?
Could use Gamma World costs/conversion rates - can buy tech items.
Presumably no genetic booster available then.
