Re: More XP
A little DM prodding to help you along here. The "slave pits" as I refer to them are the prison cells where the slaves stay when not working. If you leave the throne room you'll come back to the main tunnel and be able to go right (east) to the mines that you haven't explored yet or left (west) towards the areas you've been through.

You're second rest was short so the slaves and majority of orcs, if they haven't fled, are probably back in the slave pit area resting before another mining shift. Of course, their routine might have been changed by your path of destruction through their lair.

Also, I think Mordred and Ealga's have done this already but could everyone make sure their entry on the status thread is updated. I want to get back to using that thread more and I think it'll be useful for everyone to be able to see the current conditions of everyone else.

Let's get going now, 3rd level is (almost literally) just around the corner.

No problem at all with the prodding, it keeps the game moving.

Re: More XP
Crap. I just posted a big beginning of combat post and apparently closed the window without actually posting. Going to redo it now. Argh.

Re: More XP
Mordred, are you going to try and cross the beams above the cells to get to the sleeping orcs? If so please note the rules in the OOC section of my last post in the IC thread.

Even More XP! And a Level!
So, the 8 orcs work out to 360xp each for you all. That means by my numbers it looks like your XP total should be 3145. That means...

YOU JUST GOT A LEVEL! Welcome to level 3. Congratulations.

Please update your character sheets and post the changes for level three here in the OOC. Also, please make your your status post in the the statuses thread is up to date.

The game can continue in the IC thread while leveling up is occurring.

Re: Even More XP! And a Level!
I can't find a reference offhand - what source material are we permitted to draw from as we level up, feats, etc?

Re: Even More XP! And a Level!
I generally run with the idea that anything may be but probably not everything will be allowed. Basically, if you're interested in something you're welcome to ask about it, and I give the ok far more often than I drop ye ole banhammer. Unlike some GMs I don't hate 3rd party. In fact, a lot of the 3rd party stuff that I own I find to be far better put together than a lot of WoTC official material. I should note that the Spell Compendium and Magic Item compendium seem to come up with things I'm far more likely to ban or require modification of than just about any other source I've ever come across. Of course, neither of those sources are likely to be relevant right now.

I guess the short answer is I take things on a case by case basis and don't have a list of completely acceptable or completely unacceptable books.

found it, msg #310

We roll for HP but you must get half hp or better. So if you roll under half then try again.

Re: Even More XP! And a Level!
Doh, forgot to answer an important question for Mordred that might apply to others (or will in the future) so I'll answer it now. Sorry Mordred!

He asked about the new spells he has access to and whether or not he can use them immediately or if he needs to wait for rest. My answer/ruling is that, because he has not expended those new spell slots since his last rest they are still available but because they have not been prepared they are currently empty. Preparation takes between 15mins - 1 hour depending on how much of you capability you are preparing at the time. In this case Mordred or, other arcane casters, have only a small amount of spells to prepare so the minimum time of 15mins is all that will be required.

The RAW (rules-as-written) specifically say that divine casters CAN'T similarly prepare spells later in the day than their standard praying time but I'm willing to waive that ruling seeing as how RPOL games are slow enough as is, (especially when your GM gets busy for a few days - as always, sorry! I do try my best, I hope no one is too frustrated by the pace). So, with 15mins of prayer Mellar can choose to fill any NEW spell slots as well.

Re: Even More XP! And a Level!
Just to clarify Mordred (or anyone else) only needs 15mins total prep time right now, not 15mins per spell.

Re: Even More XP! And a Level!
Dammit! Hey everyone, apologies and all. I *know* I sat here and typed an update like a day or maybe two ago. I *know* I did this but somehow I failed to post it. I did update the game map but must have closed the tab with the composed post without posting it. Very frustrating. Will try to rectify the situation immediately but I may not have enough time to type it out again before an impending chore forces me away from the comp. Will do ASAP.

Re: Anniversary
From what I've seen around RPOL in some games I've tried to play in over the last year that is quite an accomplishment. Thanks for sticking with it everyone, hope its been and continues to be worth it.

Now what do you get the party that survives a year on RPOL...hmm first anniversary probably isn't The Tarrasque...Lich? No he's at least a couple levels down...maybe the first anniversary is the Troll anniversary. Seems a bit more reasonable. Though, The Tarrasque does sound fun.


Hmm, I'll have to give it a couple days to decide. :) Still have the taste of blood in my mouth after one of my players got himself disintigrated on Sunday in my Table-top Ptolus /w Experimental Rules game.
