Re: Anniversary
Indeed, a sneaky one with magic and tricks up his sleeve!

Apologies in advance if I suck as a DM this week folks. Its time once again to spend hours each day interrogating my students to verify their lack of English speaking ability (otherwise known as exam week). My schedule for these exams combined with where I do them and family and general house chore obligations means that most days I can't touch a computer until late night. Will do my best though.

Re: Anniversary
I'm ok, just worn out. My wife asked me to teach her afternoon classes (at our house) last Friday to go have a check up because she wasn't feeling well and she's been in the hospital ever since. She's mostly ok, wouldn't even be in the hospital if we were in Canada, but here in Korea doctors recommend hospital stays over pretty much every little thing and my wife, being a Korean, follows their suggestions. Anyway, that means I've been basically playing the single parent to a three year old for a few days now, leaving me without much free time.

Re: Anniversary
Augh. I remember such times in the past.  My wife is going in for surgery at the end of June. Thankfully her parents are coming up from Florida to help with the kids for those 3 days.

Anywho, I have a rules type question:  Can my Travel Domain power, help me speed past these webs?

Re: Anniversary
Mellar, your last strength roll will get you to the place where the invisible creature is (though its a full round action to do so). You'll still be entangled
though. (An entangled creature moves at half speed, canít run or charge, and takes a Ė2 penalty on attack rolls and a Ė4 penalty to Dexterity. Casting a spell while entangled requires a Concentration check (DC 15 + the spellís level).

Your travel domain power will let you move freely, as a move action, and keep you from the entangled penalties for as long as it lasts if you still want to use it.

Mordred, you can actually get rid of the webs if you want because the web spell is dismissible.

(D) Dismissible: If the Duration line ends with ď(D),Ē you can
dismiss the spell at will. You must be within range of the spellís
effect and must speak words of dismissal, which are usually a mod-
ified form of the spellís verbal component. If the spell has no verbal
component, you can dismiss the effect with a gesture. Dismissing a
spell is a standard action that does not provoke attacks of opportu-
nity. A spell that depends on concentration is dismissible by its very
nature, and dismissing it does not take an action, since all you have
to do to end the spell is to stop concentrating on your turn.

Re: Anniversary
I do want to use the power long enough to get the farthest side of the area the webs are covering.  Or through them if possible. I want to get past the invisible target, if I can.  Mellar has no intention of attacking the invisible dwarf, but instead hopes to get through the webs to prevent his escape.  To do so, Mellar will 'double-move' until his is either out of the webs, or on the far side of the room. He will also avoid provoking OA's from the invisible dwarf. Again if he can.

Re: Anniversary
Mellar when you are in position just yell in game and Mordred will dismiss the webs.

Re: Anniversary
Ok Ealga, will do.

We just need to know what Lonhro and Radoslav are going to do now. I should mention that do to the struggling in the (now dismissed) webs and Mellar's previous information that you have a 50% chance of choosing the right square to attack if you want to try getting the dwarf (as there are only 2 he could be in).

Just updated my last IC thread post to note that the dwarf dropped the invisibility.

Re: Anniversary
As has been pointed out to me players were probably waiting to see how the dwarf responded to Mellar, which makes sense. Sorry, my bad then. Though I will ask/remind all players that if you want to wait to post your action until you know the result of another action or for some other reason please drop a note here in teh OOC thread so everyone is aware of it. Anyway, I suspect I'll be able to put up the round summary after work today.

Re: Anniversary
I'm going on vacation, of sorts, starting Friday. I  might be able to check in later in the week (June 29th, 30th), but then I'll be incommunicado again from July 1 to July 6.

Re: Anniversary
Damn folks. Just spent a week or so of ridiculous days in the office (like in the 12+ hours variety). It was all my fault for falling way way behind in my marking and grading. The deadline for final grades was looming though and I had to get my classes in order. Its all done now though. Sorry for the delay.

What now?
I've uploaded the level map of where you've been on the orc/slave pits/mining level to the maps thread and the game map link.

So, now where to - what to do?

Re: What now?
It could be time to head to that secret door behind the seat and what looks like a stairwell down.

The alternative I guess it to try and go down the elevator that big guy was operating.

Any thoughts?

Do you mean follow the tracks south out of that chamber we were in? I'm not sure where else in the mines we haven't checked (aside from down the elevator).

Re: What now?
Mellar isn't interested in the mine shaft yet at this point.  The mine car tracks south, I think, are the only area we did not yet explore.  Not sure how safe that area is, but the only other area is the hidden staircase.

Are those not 4 more unexplored tunnels in the room with the mine tracks?

Re: What now?
Some will quickly turn into dead ends but the mines do continue on, especially along the tracks. They are currently silent though.

There are the stairs behind the "throne room" of course and the mine shaft. In all honesty and in a moment of meta-gameyness I would hasten to remind you that at it's heart the game is an old school dungeon crawl and in old school dungeon crawls the further down you go the tougher it gets. That shaft goes down pretty far. I won't stop you from exploring it but beware that like most large area campaigns it is possible to find your way into areas that you probably can't handle yet.

I'm sorry to say that I hadn't clued in to Mordred's long absence. I'll start trying to hunt him down and see what's what right now.
