14d - interlude - Radiance
Finding a world where there's an adventure 'which we could do that would find a helm of brilliance'. From T&T world; return to the Keep in less than a week, and opening gateways from 3-P - trying to find a good spot on the correct continent (YN questions).

Initial approach:
17:51, Today: Garek rolled 48 using 1d100.  degree of civilization.
Edge of civilized lands / not entirely terrible terrain.
Can move toward a town somewhere (aerial recon) and find place to stay where can narrow down where they're going.

14d - interlude - Radiance
Hall of Illusions - 2 trolls.
Helm of True Seeing - means actual appearance visible.
Seeing trolls - possible fireball use (but would 'expand' here - D&D rules rather than 'Flash Point').
One-way door a possible issue.
Party can dimension door back, if necessary.

The two teleport points in the southwest corner of the
hallway interact with each other. Moving east across the
southern one will cause the creature to be teleported back to
the first. Moving north across the northern point will cause the
creature to be teleported to the southern one. Since the walls
are featureless, a character can go over these points numerous
times without being any the wiser of the trick. It will appear
to the trapped creature to be an endless square of hallway.
The only way to escape is to step, during the first moment after
teleportation, in the opposite direction of the direction set to
trigger the next teleport point; that is, north off the northern
point or east off the southern point, and then return to the
teleport point. This will neutralize the teleporting mechanism
for each character who performs the proper maneuver.

Revelation staff: malfunctions for Antaeus but Gaynor can use normally w/ True Seeing.
Can sense is a 'teleport point' under the darkness.? [checking Howling Tower helm description] - 'true sight'.
Should party break open the one-way door ? - could lead to monsters escaping.
Continuing in - Revelation shows secret door. [looted]
Moving around finds the two trolls.
-killed; Garek takes 4 damage after Yuurk (bite, crit for 14).
Dimension dooring remains into volcano outside; return to fire giant room to rest e.g. recover PSPs.

'will we be bothered by resting' - requires coin (5 hrs Str regen) because blew 20 YN questions on ID'ing magic books; severe depletion there.
Overnight recovers Timepiece usage.

(Permanent 'fire resistance' could be useful.
Spoon of mixing ? - wouldn't affect equipment ) - out of YN questions ?? Can check for 3 mixing's overnight.

11:45, Today: Garek rolled 5 using 1d100.  01-50 fire resistance.
11:45, Today: Garek rolled 66,10,90 using d100,d100,d100.  mixing results - levitation, climbing, flying (90+).
-flying + fire resistance gives permanent fire resistance! - used, Garek.

Final character adjustments (fire resistance):

-Hammer of Retribution; equip - Gaynor
Ring of Fire Resistance.

-Harcourt - sword of cold (offhand).
fire resistance


Antaeus - ring of 100% fire resistance.
Can't take Revelation staff. Can teleport or DD back to party (if distance known).


Garek:
Potion of fire resistance - permanent.

-Drax
Shield of Fire Protection

Retcon - honestly no way an efreet wouldn't screw with someone wishing to be an elf. And no way to insert 'don't screw with this' clause.
Assume Harcourt vanishes with soul going into an elf baby that's about to be born in 9 months (or whatever their gestation period is).

2nd wish - instead of getting Ballistic Attack Drax uses wish #2 to cancel wish #1.
Resurrection survival: would be 100%, assume no Con loss (wish).
Wish #3 for Marsa - is specific and can add a 'with no other changes' clause so is OK.

12:45, Today: Garek rolled 28 using 1d100.  Does Harcourt *realllly* want to be an elf (10%).
no..[if was yes could've used Ring of Before to cancel wish and become an elf fetus]

Use "Ring of Before" to avoid whatever that was ? Not an 'event' rather than parameter of situation, however.
issue that its hatred is such that reading its mind gives only feelings of wanting to murder.

#15 - 24 + 28 + 3 rounds ?? [>51 - yes dead]. #17 - very dead.

Not possible 'at this experience level'
Stabbing it with Dark Moon reduces its level, so its not as strong mentally. Possibly an evil act. But hey, they're salamanders.

12:57, Today: Garek rolled 2 using 1d20.  Contact - reroll.

13:05, Today: Garek rolled 5 using 1d20.  final probe roll.
Full success, took 15 rounds and 135 PSPs. [6 left]

failures - means getting random unrelated crap / confused by how alien stuff is, being traumatized by memories.

dangers - traps, shadows, marquins, flashing lights.
Fairly straightforward. Mostly salamanders! Note: *haven't* asked about treasure (jewellery room ? shadows). Would know there are about 30 salamanders (20% complete).

-+ 4 hits to the other one, and speed attack. All done...
total killed (6+1+4 = 11). Constrict attack noticeably dangerous.

Tactics - Antaeus could Control a constricting one, to make it let go. Harcourt - could teleport out.
Assume Marsa has yoink'd the teleport ring (Khobold; not useful to Antaeus - teleports already, no ring slots, or Harcourt - also no ring slots spare].
Dimension Door not useful.
Assume PCs have brought the 'time piece' but not most other party treasure due to flammability or bag of holding concerns.

Room 7 -gate room.
Room 6 - maquins - probably know to ignore (detailed probing).

14d - interlude - Radiance
Assessing total party resistances:
Poison - total party resistance; OK.

Fire:
Garek: sword of cold, as ring of fire resistance; Throfd worm armour; Bag is fireproof.
Gaynor: Throfd worm armour, ring of fire resistance
Antaeus: ring of 100% fire resistance [gives *total* immunity]
Harcourt - cloak +7; Energy Containment psionic power [Con-based = 95% effective; if activated in time]
Drax: shield of fire protection +4 [??]; Dex to save
Marsa: Has ring of 1/2 fire resistance (was Drax's)
Lynn: 50% damage, pyrokinesis; 15% magic resistance


Sage: vulnerability ! - helm detonation possible. [Keep in bag of holding]

Overall: Garek, Marsa quite vulnerable [preventing fireball on own party].
Items may be vulnerable. Sword of Cold - should extend to adjacent items (if like a frost brand; generates a radius of effect).

Notes- get sage a 'bag of holding'

-distributed javelins of lightning: Lynn, Garek, Gaynor, Harcourt

Garek: exchanged his Axe of Speed for the Sword of Cold [a good deal; Harcourt has too many redundant abilities.


12:30, Today: Garek rolled 7 using 1d20.  scarab of protection possibly cursed (1 on d20).- no, is OK.

14d - interlude - Radiance
[for Reference]
Ring of Fire Resistance: The wearer of this ring is totally immune to the
effects of normal fires- torches, flaming oil, bonfires, etc. Very large and
hot fires, molten lava, demon immolation, hell hound breath, or a wall of
fire spell will cause 10 hit points of damage per round ( 1 per segment) if
the wearer is directly within such conflagration. Exceptionally hot fires
such as red dragon breath, pyrohydra breath, fireballs, flame strike, fire
storm, etc. are saved against at +4 on the die roll, and all damage dice
are calculated at -2 per die, but each die is never less than 1 in any event.
(As a rule of thumb, consider very hot fires as those which have a maximum
initial exposure of up to 24 hit points, those of exceptional heat 25 or
mare hit points.)
