14f - Death Heart
sleeping overnight: PSP and spell recovery. Time Piece resetting.
Posting watches.
Down 4 YN questions (3 around Horragus and 1 other); 1 Ring of Before charge.

stairs - found two (A, B).
[descending, checking for traps/magic]
Which goes down further ? - both to level 1 only (good).

A first, then B. Searching nearby finding Four.
Telepathy + Life Detection picking up lots of stuff..

Temporarily leaving for now.
Back to stair 'A'.
Proceeding west along weird room - Would find Nine next.
Telepathy - Gaynor picks up a Phandelyon's thoughts.
Seems like are aware of the treasure - might not be thinking about specifically.
Super annoying.

Room One - life force detector finds 3 scorpions [18' long]
Time shift recon: giant scorpions. Possibly immune to fire; maybe poison.


Would poison work - YN question used - "yes" (though its 50%).
Smog in through ceiling hole could work.
Energy weapons - absorption via mist.
Visibility of 10ft makes missile fire awkward, however.

...
Burning 4 Smog bombs ['lose at least half power' - reduced to 1/4 reduction]
-having to maintain dimension door for some time.
-getting closer - finds crystal globe.

14f - Death Heart
Gaynor and Gaynor- cut iron chain [sword of sharpness] and lower to the ground.
Sphere itself valuable? - assume Hand of Set is a construct so won't trip Helm of Brilliance, but would detect as magical, perhaps. Except, has 'cover'. Unclear how to get into sphere, or if is transparent.
Attempting to Dimension Door inside (is 6' diameter) with orientations such that contents fall out: Hand of Set (Guardian) as well as ring and amulet fall out.

16:04, Today: Garek rolled 18 using 1d20.  Antaeus danger sense. [Surprise]
16:04, Today: Garek rolled 41 using 5d20 with rolls of 10,11,7,9,4.  attacks.

16:07, Today: Garek rolled 20 using 1d20+10.  Gaynor grab.

Retreat, planning complex strategy

Antaeus - teleport 2 characters with; attempt to surprise.
-Gaynor; Harcourt (two fastest); both dual undead scimitar attack. [+confusion]
***[Lich - Dex 20 - goes if still alive] - may turn ethereal + cast spell.
Anteaus [Dex 19]- teleport back out.
Garek - Dimension door to drop in Smog bomb; holding door (duality action)

2nd recon to find lich's exact position.
Lets do it.

10:02, Today: Garek rolled 44 using 1d100.  Lich has some scrying etc. running (25%)
-if it does, still doesn't know enough about party's position/tactics right now.
Although roll does trigger a weird event ?

10:03, Today: Garek rolled 60,16,56 using d100,d100,d100.  unusual event.
PC negative; inquire; wishes ?? - ???
Uninterpretable.

AC 2+4 = AC 22.
2 hits each (Gaynor, Harcourt

10:10, Today: Garek rolled 8 using 1d20.  backtrack - power check.


10:08, Today: Garek rolled 22,13,16,24 using d20+12,d20+12,d20+11,d20+11.  Scimitar attacks.
10:09, Today: Garek rolled 17 using 2d10.  Death save (about 14, -4 for 13 HD = 11+).
10:09, Today: Garek rolled 9 using 2d10.  Death save (about 14, -4 for 13 HD = 11+).

10:10, Today: Garek rolled 5 using 1d20.  Confusion.
10:09, Today: Garek rolled 17 using 2d10.  Death save (about 14, -4 for 13 HD = 11+).
10:09, Today: Garek rolled 9 using 2d10.  Death save (about 14, -4 for 13 HD = 11+).

-has used double PSPs for two short-range teleports (80)

10:10, Today: Garek rolled 2 using 1d20.  power check to get out!
[PCs disoriented]

10:14, Today: Garek rolled 12 using 1d20.  Garek -dimension door. [Power Score!]
-dropping Smog bomb reducing saurig HPs by 1/2 (check poison immunity)

Running the jump raid from room near stair "B" to minimize chance of detection.
Saurigs - want revenge but want to escape poison cloud first. Likely to head out into big empty room above Four.

10:20, Today: Garek rolled 47 using 1d100.  All saurigs leaving to empty room (65%).

PCs -now not sure where lizards going. Should've planned more..
PCs - reenter room from far side. Fireballs ready.
Lizards re-entering as Smog dissipates...lizards now 23 HPs.
Drax: 21 damage --saves 13+ = 5/6 make their saves - 12 HPs x 5, 1 at 2 HPs,
Marsa casts - fireball - finishes those off even if make the save.

Party reequipped regular weapons
7 at 23 HPs.
Garek in forefront (Harcourt and Gaynor still disoriented but also here). Saurigs may spread out to get whoever.
10:28, Today: Garek rolled 8,2,20,13,1,3 using d20,d20,d20,d20,d20,d20.  Garek, Gaynor, Harcourt.
Fumble result (H): 10:30, Today: Garek rolled 32 using 1d100.  Fumble result. 'flexible weapon hits wrong target' - no effect for axe.
10:34, Today: Garek rolled 12 using 1d100.  critical result. Gaynor - artery in leg cut, +d8 damage and First target - 27 damage - dead Orodryn. die in d10 minutes.--that one dies from damage anyway.
2nd target - takes 21 damage from broadsword [1 HP].
Garek - hits once
10:41, Today: Garek rolled 22 using 1d8+14.  damage. [Rod] --now at 1 HP.
('2' misses as offhand - AC 6/14 at +10]
Harcourt - '3' at +11 actually just hits.
10:42, Today: Garek rolled 9,20 using 2d4+2,4d6.  Darkmoon. [=29 damage, kills one]

[tables of specific results can effectively modify chance of success for specific modifiers - for example a fumble result of "flexible weapon hits wrong target" might be used for a flail but ignored for a sword, meaning chance of a fumble with flails is effectively heightened]

opposed roll powers costing more.


Results: 6 killed in fireball, 1 by Gaynor, 1 by Harcourt.
2 saurigs have 1 HP, 3 have 23 HPs.
1-HP saurigs engaged with Gaynor, Garek respectively. 3 others - 1 to Harcourt; 1 to Marsa or Drax [Drax intercepting]; 1 intercepted by Lynn [goes last]
Antaeus - could act, lots of PSPs burned :(
10:48, Today: Garek rolled 1,9 using d20,d20.  Control body, Str check. - lizard wins.. [ costs 8 PSPs as was successful, just fails due to opposed roll]
Lizard attacks: [reading 'maximum' as largest die size rather than automatic max damage]
10:55, Today: Garek rolled 13,7,18 using d20+5,d20+5,d20+5.  lizard on Gaynor. - miss
10:55, Today: Garek rolled 25,9,18 using d20+5,d20+5,d20+5.  lizard on Garek.

'Throat cut, die in d3 melee turns.' - checking for Yuurk
claw d12 (bite same?), tail 2d8
10:59, Today: Garek rolled 17 using 1d20+5.  crit confirm.
-treat crit as bypassing the Yuurk. 6 damage + a serious problem. But may be able to regen this.
Tail also hits [15 damage]
Not totally immediate death - spending a turn putting on/using Ring of Before.

On Harcourt:
11:02, Today: Garek rolled 23,22,20 using d20+5,d20+5,d20+5.  On Harcourt.
1:02, Today: Garek rolled 11,3,9 using d12,d12,2d8.  3 hits.

[Next turn - use Time Piece]

Next round - Garek - uses Ring of Before [duality action]
11:12, Today: Garek rolled 14 using 1d20+13.  stab guy.
11:12, Today: Garek rolled 69 using 1d100.  fumble. [probably fair under circumstances]
Full stumble - agility check for those nearby
11:13, Today: Garek rolled 3 using 1d6.  1-3 gaynor.
Gaynor - technically goes first
11:13, Today: Garek rolled 26,15 using d20+12,d20+10.  attacks.
1st attack kills the 1 HP lizardman, 2nd attack would kill Garek's lizardman, say (though he's already trying to attack and falls over - or, Gaynor catches him).

Remaining - one on Harcourt [23 HP]; one on Drax [23 HP]
11:16, Today: Garek rolled 9,12 using d20,d20.  Anteaus - control body again. [too strong]

Used Time Piece once. Ring of Before charge deducted.
Antaeus has used 96 PSPs [2 short-range teleports at double cost] + a few for reconnaisance.

14f - Death Heart
Going into area behind secret door (? none not exposed on at least one side - try Room 10 on L1 instead) and spending about 4 hours recuperating - recovering 48 PSPs and getting psyched up, etc.
Can loan Skull Starr to Harcourt until his 14 damage is healed.

14f - Death Heart
Exploring more - finding connection between Seven and back toward stair "A".
Exploring up and to left (preferred direction) finds room Two.
-Helm of Brilliance lights up when approached. Number/type of undead - unknown.


-deducted fireball charges for goblins.
Think already deducted for saurigs

-getting Sage to use crystal ball since PSP exhaustion starting to become a problem; zombie birds..
Small but lots of these (13 in total). Same # as gems ? - created by the lich.

More Fireballs - note the 'helm (s) of brilliance' can also generate fireballs.
Open door in old-fashioned way; use wands...fighters steps in if birds attack.
Probably fast: get Gaynor to wear Helm and fireball with that first. Behind him - Harcourt can use Drax's wand (on 22).

Lobbed in two Smog bombs; each being 1/2 HP, takes out [or is at 0 HPs].
Smog bomb not a 'spoken' spell so nose rings don't activate.

14f - Death Heart
Going around - next would be Five.
Not done -Six.
Not found yet (last) - Three.

From Two: up and around takes up to Six [Mantisaur]
Life force detector shows something big!
Also the gold detecting hammer is really excited.
Possible dragon? Also, transport home with it would be an issue.
Best to leave for moment.

Wish list: sleep gas

Thunder bunnies: get insane howling rage with telepathy! [several of them]
look small?
Used fireball to kill them..
Spiga - too small for life force detector.

14f - Death Heart
16:50, Today: Garek rolled 10,4 using d20,d20.  Room Three - telepathy.
-not quite successful. Life force detector finds something (Large i.e. horse-size).
Chaeronyx - medusa/centaur!

Time Shift - 'he can't affect anything, nor can anything affect him'. OTOH, can see still. So,  possibly stoning gaze would still affect [just as could be blinded by a a room of pure blinding light]. Counter-argument being that its a magical offensive power.
Will take least-generous result.

17:09, Today: Garek rolled 8 using 1d20.  Gaynor - Dex check to catch. [Dex 30]

14f - Death Heart
Spending another period recovering after fight - 'overnight' period until Time Piece has recharged, PSPs recharged. After 2 crits, a magic item backfire, and a petrification, party morale is low but the amount of treasure found is entirely ridiculous (over 400K).

Used another Y/N question determining if any of scrolls were cursed to check if any useful on stone problem (nuh).


20:38, Today: Garek rolled 20 using 1d20.  Antaeus - debating he should have Night Finger.
Actually, nup. Gaynor keeping it (very unlikely event, anyway it is reversible). Also protects from mesmerism - don't want Gaynor to go berserk.

14f - Death Heart
Time shift recon for Room Six.
'Not a dragon. Might be worse'.

Smog - bomb likely to have little effect because room is so large (90' ceiling somehow) and monster so big...head up out of smoke zone.

Debating - Lynn usually going last is bad. Leaving for now.

14f - Death Heart
Level 2 (the third level).

14f - Death Heart
Room Eight

22:05, Today: Garek rolled 17,19,2,5,15 using d20,d20,d20,d20,d20.  telepathy - heads.
22:06, Today: Garek rolled 18,16,9,5 using d20,d20,d20,d20.  telepathy - heads.

-multiple sets of very simple, reptilian thoughts (19 TN, +4 telepathy).
-one life sign on detector
=1 large, multiheaded monster.

22:09, Today: Garek rolled 16,14,6,13,10,10,19 using d20,d20,d20,d20,d20,d20,d20.  Gaynor, Garek, Harcourt.
22:11, Today: Garek rolled 116 using 10d8+72.  approx damage.



Room Six:
undead detected. Time shift: nothing! Some sort of invisible monster. Or it left in those 3 rounds.
Open door - scimitars ready - true seeing spots.
22:23, Today: Garek rolled 14,6 using d20,d20.  Gaynor on ghost.
22:23, Today: Garek rolled 3,14 using 2d10,2d10.  saves (14+). [exorcised]

[rechecking - actually Antaeus would've turned to stop and then been 'there' for rest of the round before returning to normal time. So no one could catch him. Question would be, whether he's going to fall over. Would the time shift end early? I think you're already 'there' in the future. How quick is petrification and do you have time to adopt a stable position ? Letting go this time.

18:37, Today: Garek rolled 48 using 1d100.  Chance of not breaking (75%).

14f - Death Heart
Immediate problem - dealing with several deodanths + a half-orc priest-mage.
From a distance back - party eat cards of magic immunity (-7 to # applied)- (edit-yep), then wait d20 minutes.

*Antaeus using a smog spell (surprise round)
+ Garek using magic doorknocker to open door quickly/quietly [elven boots]

*Gaynor - Helm of Brilliance [prismatic spray] + attacking
