Eh, I was more referring to the skill substitution of Versatile Performance. It allows me to substitute Perform (Dance) for Acrobatics and Fly checks. Yes, even if I have never flown in my life. I'm sure a +13 will be suitable for the acrobatics checks.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
 Do we have the abilities we gained for leveling up to level 5 yet or do I need to wait until tomorrow?

 The answer to that will determine whether or not I need to smash more of the gauntlet :P

on level up with no rest players gain new class abilities except for spells and maneuvers.

So feats, skills, special abilities, ect you gain access too.

I meant that I would take you, and then take your gear in separate jumps, Drazgar. But Morien won't take off his armor and he's too heavy to carry with the armor so it doesn't matter.

To the gauntlet then.

And yeah I don't think any of us can cast Jump, Morien, so you're going to have to smash things.
Unless Aden used one of his learned spells for Jump (Bards don't get it, no clue if Oracles do). Otherwise unless our Wizard has it in his spellbook and memorised; I guess we could pick up a scroll of it (25 gold).

Jump isn't on your spell list Morien, so someone else would have to cast that scroll on you. a potion of jump would cost 50 gp.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I think our wizard is long gone from this game.  To my knowledge, jump isn't on the cleric/oracle spell list, but if Morien purchases a scroll, then Aden/Yanyeeku can do UMD checks until we're successful casting it.  However, there's always the chance of a nat 1 on the UMD check.

Regardless, Morien got across last time, hopefully he can manage the same this time.  We could consider purchasing 20' of chain to string across the gap, give Morien something to hold to as he crosses for stability.  Better than rope, whic would probably burn if there's a fire burst through the gap.  Heavier though also.  Still, I bet one of us can manage to carry it in our inventory.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I'd chip in up to 10gp towards a Jump Potion if you want. It would certainly take less time to get across rather than breaking like last time if we could jump instead.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
5 gp from me.  But even with the jump spell, is success guaranteed Morien?  It only adds +10 to jump acrobatics, and you've got to get a running start and beat dc 20 on the longest jump.  Got to  consider your acro skill bonus and armor check penalty

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Hey you guys got some time to plan and try to be clever. There are a few ways I would handle it with a guy like Morien who refused to take off his armor, but your time in the gauntlet isn't such a huge factor. team can only attempt it one at a time and the first team to finish wins. Also just like you guys, each other team gets a little easier time through the gauntlet on each new day because they learned more about it.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
 No, success isn't guaranteed. I have a net modifier of 0 on jump checks.

 I think a 20ft length of chain would likely be a better option.... unless, of course, the pendulums are repaired after each run and are low enough to snag the chain (that would be bad)

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Will you be willing to take off your armor and inventory so that Dustil and maybe Aden can "ferry" you and your stuff across the gaps separately?  It's either that, or walk across on a narrow makeshift bridge.  Or come up with a way to fly.

Tomorrow Aden can cast levitate on you, allowing you to clamber along the walls at half-speed. :)

According to d20pfsrd, 10' of chain is 30gp. Not sure we want to spend 60gp for 20' of chain.  But it seems the best idea we've thought of, imo.

Alright if you want to get something before making your gauntlet attempt for the day please either mention it in the festival day two thread or in a pm to me before you post in the gauntlet thread. Once you post in the gauntlet thread you are committed to the attempt and may not change your character sheet, spell prepared, items owned, ect. The gauntlet is serious business and one of the most challenging events so there is no soft balling or forgiving once you step in.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
sorry, i've been ridiculously busy.

Aden will leave 2 flasks of alchemist fire at the Temple, so that he has 5 in his inventory.  He will purchase 2 more javelins, so that he has 4 in his inventory, still at light encumbrance.

I'm struggling to pick my 5th level feat.  If Aden takes Rapid Shot, could he use that with two javelins, assuming he has both drawn, one per hand?

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
yeah as long as it does not take more than a swift action to "load" you can use rapid shot. But remember your "invisible" trick only works for the first ranged attack each round. Unless you have a feat or class ability that lets you throw, move more than five feet and then throw again.

On that note, quoting full attack action

"The only movement you can take during a full attack is a 5-foot step. You may take the step before, after, or between your attacks."

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
on the full attack thing, yes in general, but in 3.5 there were feats, class abilities, spells, maneuvers, ect. that basically let you full attack and move more then 5 feet. Lion's charge(spell), pounce(special ability), pouncing charge(maneuver), rapid blitz(not a full attack but three attacks is close), Dervish dance(class feature) just to name a few. I would not be surprised if a PrC, magic of some kind, feat, class ability, or something else could do the same in pathfinder.

Aden Bero:
OOC: Don't forget DM's house rule, Taking 5. If you have +10 or more in a skill you can take a 5 instead of rolling.  So, for the short easy jumps where you don't want to accidentally jump into a blade on the opposite side of the gap, take 5 can come in handy.



Aw I forgot about that.

Edit: Ah, see for some reason I thought that meant 10 ranks but that wouldn't make sense for our level. My bad.

DM, would that count for things that you get to add (like how I get to add my monk level)?

um. He did describe it.

Mr. Main:
It is searing hot in a long room. well over 200 feet long and 50 feet wide. In it's center spanning a wide expanse of what looks like Lava at least 80 feet down is a ten foot wide stone walk way. there are several large gaps in it, ranging from 10-15 feet long, and along it's length there are many swinging pendulum blades. Occasionally from the gaps in the walkway, brief bursts of flame erupt. At the far end of the walkway is another door.

draz the house rule thread is for rule declaration, clarification and discussion. although it is an open thread it's not really a place that you post unless you have a specific question about a house rule.

It's nice that you have a +3 dex mod, but that doesn't mean anything on it's own.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
We need to give Dustil more of a bonus when he's ferrying.  The odds of failure are too high for my liking.  if we get a bad die roll, there go two of our teammates.  I'm thinking Yanyeeku inspire confidence, and Dustil, maybe ki points?  I know you probably want to save them, but...

Or, maybe we should break this blade. Then we can tie a rope around Dustil, and once he's in midair we can all yank him towards us.  Give him the extra momentum....

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
You've got to get a 16 on your check at least.  Inspire confidence adds +2?  Putting your mod at +10? This means if you roll 5 or lower, you potentially fall.  That's a 25% chance.  True, you could sill potentially grab the ledge, and pull yourself, with a freezer on your back and a swingin blade giving you a haircut....

So yeah, I think we should come up with something better to up the odds in our favor.

I'm aware that there is a chance for failure. Not too much I can do about it other than wasting all my ki points. I can't take 10 unfortunately, lol. =)

If Inspire Confidence gives a +2, maybe the GM would allow me to take 5 on the roll. That would be 15ft.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Per d20pfsrd, harpoon has a ranged increment of 10' (it's listed as a melee weapon).  And it's exotic, so Aden will be taking major negative on attack roll unless he gets within 10'.  This means I'm going to need to lay down at least one obscuring mist to be that close and not get the shit knocked out of me with an AoO.  And then I still need someone to distract him so that he's facing away from me if I'm going to put this harpoon in a hard to reach spot on his back.

And that's the easiest part of this plan. =)

That 31 is only with the +10 bonus granted by the grease spell cast by yanyeeku who goes last. So technically He would already be swallowed and in the snakes stomach before yanyeeku gets a chance to cast his spell. I let yanyeeku get it off anyway to speed up the round and so that drazgar can get that +10 on his next turn.

EDIT: Well, that sucked. My plan was to summon something at R11 to see if the sculpture came alive. If it didn't, move it to R12. If nothing happened, then we would have a 5ft passage by the snake sculpture.

One I posted up for you guys and then a more detailed color coded one that has trap type and a general area for where it is. so when you post I have got to check both maps and plot what your most likely course from the last square you said you were in to the new square you say you ended up. it's a little more work than I originally thought it would be.

I can, but my bonus is fairly average (+8). I won't be able to pull anyone across though. But I can use Dance to get across myself through an indirect path.

Unless anyone has better than a +8 on any of the skills mentioned by Mr. Main, then you're our harness expert Yanyeeku. :) We can attempt to aid another to bolster that +8.

And when I say "pull across" we'll each be pulled by a rope held by those on the far side, while harnessed to the main rope that is attached to the poles.  So it shouldn't take much strength really. Someone else can go first, with a backup rope tied to them that we all hold, in case the harness fails. Once on the other side, they tie the backup rope to the harness, as well as the "pulling rope" which they'll losely hold. we then pull the harness with both additional ropes back to us, and then repeat.

We have plenty of rope to help each other across and have a backup rope, or two, tied to us in case the harness fails.

But we should try to test the harness and the poles for strength capacity.  And those with heavy gear should put everything in their backpack, which can be harnessed to the rope and pulled across.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
 since this observation is entirely an OOC one but taking 20 on a perception check takes quite a bit of time (a good estimate is roughly 2 minutes to scan the environment or 2 hours to overturn everything with a search type check).

 This means that Yanyeeku has probably spent 4ish minutes looking around in between his dance-jumps.

 Taking 20 on rolls is only abusable if you have all the time in the world to accomplish something.

The time it takes isn't an issue, I think it's more of the whole auto success thing that bugs me. I just might house rule something about it soon because I feel it's being used a little to often. It's not supposed to be a "I take 2 hours and find all the traps" it's more of a I take 2 minutes and climb that small wall or up that tree type of deal.


Oh by the way yanyeeku there aren't any traps. This is a straight skill challenge obstacle course.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
 well, in the case of traps, taking 20 to find them is more of a search check than a spot check and anyone poking around looking for them will likely set them off if they don't have some training (ie. trapfinding)

 now, if you're taking 20 to find all the traps in your current path (representing testing each step you make (probably with a stick or something) to avoid traps), then that should probably still slide, unless, of course, it's a trap that triggers something far off (like a boulder)

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
trapfinding is different in pathfinder. anyone can notice traps with dc over 20. now trapfinding is just an ability that gives you a bonus on perception checks to find traps. Also it's not just traps I just used those as an example. My point is that personally I am beginning to feel like people are using the rule to often, but enough of that.

anyway Drazgar I was telling dustil to make an acrobatics check to walk along the balance beams. If you want to follow him go for it. However I thought you were going to jump onto the harness train with the rest of them.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
well where they would need you would be on the third platform with a red pole on it on the right side. it's just to the right of the small platform with the balance beam that leads to the platform with the door on it. so you'd need to do a little jumping but nothing you couldn't handle.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
well on a miss that was close you could make a dex check to try and catch it. but otherwise if he would get it into your square by meeting the ranged attack dc you auto catch it. As for securing it; that depends. to secure it to something you can reach requires no check. it you want to attach it to the top of the pole you have to climb up and secure it. toss it and secure it or, if you can make the dc, jump up and secure it. so securing it in itself has no check, just getting the circumstance where it can be secured to something might.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
you're looking at a jump dc around 40 if you want to jump to the top of the pole. It is 15 feet tall.

the climb check dc is somewhere around 17 ish. since your base land speed is 40 you can climb it in a single round so only one check would be necessary.

the ranged attack roll to affix the grappling hook to the top of the pole by tossing it is 9 if you stand next to the pole.

Dustil would go back to retrieve the ropes left behind since he can make most of these jumps.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
well while I'm not going to comment on the theory while those letters would be known to us as Greek; in game you can consider it Ancient Arcadian. Which is something I mentioned to Aden in answer to one of his knowledge checks. It's not used much in the current time in game, but anyone who has lived in Arcadian Alliance territory for a while is at least slightly familiar with them. Just like most college students nowadays are at least a little familiar with the Greek alphabet. By that I mean they recognize them and can identify several. Not that they can speak Greek or read or write in it.

Yanyeeku, our bardic lore master.  Any chance you could make some knowledge checks to know this in-character?  I feel like Dustil OOC has pointed us in the right direction, but I'm uncertain our actual characters would know anything like this.

We could move the A pedastal to the North, make a fire with the kindling while touching the tetrahedron.

Move B pedastal to West, blow on the pinwheel while touching the octa.

Move G pedastal to east, hold the bricks while touching the cube.

Move D pedastal to south, fill the basin with water while touching the Icosahedron.

Or something like that?

Alpha Pedestal, Northern Point. Add kindling and match with Tetrahedron.

Beta Pedestal, Western point. Add pinwheel and match with icosahedron.

Gamma Pedestal, Eastern Point, add bricks and match with cube.

Delta pedestal, Southern point. Add basin and match with octahedron.

I think that's more or less correct. By the way, can the shapes be moved from the table?

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
There isn't much to it. five crystal shapes on a round stone table with a huge stone egg in the middle. The five shapes are: Tetrahedron (d4), cube (d6), Octahedron(d8), Dodecahedron(d12), isocahedron(d20). Also on that table are a basin, some kindling, a pinwheel, and some bricks.

 There where 4 pedestals along one wall. Each marked with a different symbol. Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta. there are four positions around the table that the pedestals can be moved to and set in. those positions are at the cardinal points. North, south, east and west.

all of this is said in message 551 of the gauntlet thread.

you can pick up and move the crystals. You can pick up and move the kindling, pinwheel, basin and bricks. you guys moved the pedestals to certain positions around the table.

I really don't see where you could get lost; then again I set the whole thing up so I already have a working mental picture going for me. If you could be more specific in what you don't "see" maybe I could explain it better.

I think I mentioned to at least one person in a PM that you need to have the right shape come into contact with the right element.

basically you need to set the kindling on fire, put "water" into the bowl, ect.

Beta Pedestal, Western point. Add pinwheel and match with octahedron.
Gamma Pedestal, Eastern Point, add bricks and match with cube.
Delta pedestal, Southern point. Add basin and match with icosahedron.

now yanyeeku stacked the cube on top of the bricks right?

did the rest of you do anything more than just place the shapes on those pedestals with the kindling, basin and pinwheel?

going to update shortly and need to know if anything more was done.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
 I liked critical fumbles, but I only ever did them in conjunction with exploding dice (a natural 1 was a reroll with a -20 penalty and a natural 20 was a reroll with a +20 bonus. A negative roll was a critical failure). That way, critical fumbles only happened typically with very unskilled people... but they were pretty memorable when they did happen :P

Anyone have something to add? Should we go with Aden's idea? If so, should we move just the shapes and items, or also the pillars?

I say we just move the items and shapes first.  Then we can see how many elementals spring out of the egg (hopefully none), and maybe that will tell us if we're moving in the right direction....

In-character? Dustil wouldn't say it unless he was bad off usually. He was about half HPs. If they weren't about to potentially start combat up again, he wouldn't have let Aden heal him all the way, staying a bit damage to preserve the healing stick.

Seems we're moving pillars, but not shapes or items.

Delta to east, beta to south, gamma to west.

If elementals start to form, Aden will move 40' back from what he thinks would be the ice elemental.

The best tactic may be to take out the smallest foe first, as quick as possible, and work up from there.  As we take them out, we reduce the number of attacks and abilities they get to use against us each round.

I'm pretty sure I just stunned the mud elemental for 1 round.  Now's the time for Draz and Morien to bash it.

Draz, i can't remember what class you are, but if you get sneak attacks, now's the time to move into a flanking position with Morien.


Elementals have immunities to everything I just posted. :(

Yanyeeku, if you have any type of ranged attack, you can use it. And if not, come grab my crossbow.  You can use it while I use javelins and spells.

Actually keep it. Just in case I need it in an actual dangerous situation. I'll amend my post tomorrow. It does mean the spell didn't go through unless you rule they happened simultaneously.

Edit: Wait. Yanyeeku would still be under total Defense when he was attacked, thus he would have evaded the attack.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Total defense is a standard action. You cannot use total defense and cast a spell in the same turn unless that spell can be cast as a swift action, is quickened, you have some sort of feat or class feature that lets you do a total defense with a reduced action cost (IE as a move, swift, free or immediate action) or you used the spell celerity to gain a standard action as an immediate action. Not sure if celerity is in Pathfinder though, it's a 3.5 spell from the player's handbook 2.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I think he's saying the round before the attack and his spell, he went total defense.

So the air elemental attacked against his total defense ac and missed.  And he then, on his next turn, did the laugh spell.
Good catch Yan!

And I'm basically out of spells everyone, which is why I'm resorting to lame attacks that are like tickling this mud elemental with DR.

And you accounted for the fact that it only gets once chance to try and throw it off with a full round action?

"On the creature's next turn, it may attempt a new saving throw to end the effect. This is a full round action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity. If this save is successful, the effect ends. If not, the creature continues laughing for the entire duration."

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Dustil didn't hit the Elemental when it 'stood up' and so it isn't available to be punched anymore after that as it's flying is my understanding.

He can go after the mud elemental (and hope it doesn't cream him into unconsciousness with its reach as the Acrobatics check vs the CMD is so freaking high) to try and help drop it so everyone can focus on the air elemental....

...or a jump kick on the air elemental if I can jump high enough? How high is the air elemental and what happens if it's holding 2 people and someone jumps into the whirlwind? Can it even be hit when it's a whirlwind?

Why not delay and see if Yan's spell hits? If it does, you can attack the air elemental again, otherwise try to flank/drop the mud elemental?

Although it might be immune to attacks/spells in tornado form. Hey DM, is the air elemental a valid target for spells and/or attacks in its current state? If so, would Hideous Laughter stop the whirlwind effect?

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
the only differences between the air elemental in normal form and whirlwind form are; it can't make attacks in whirlwind form (since whirlwind form is an attack) and it does not provoke AoO's while in whirlwind form.

It is flying. It's about 15 feet above the ground. if you can make a jump check to reach 15 feet I'll let you try and jump kick it dustil.

 Yanyeeku and aden I will allow you guys to make escape artist, grapple, ect checks to break free if you spend a hero point to do so.

That's what I figured. Okay. Edited post with new charge roll and damage. I didn't add in Yan's Inspire bonus since I wasn't sure if the whirlwind stopped him from being able to sustain it or not. If he was, then 2 more damage on top of that.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Okay. So. Been going over results.


First time:
Alpha - North - Kindling - Tetrahedron. No elementals.
Beta - West - Pinwheel - Octahedron. Two air elementals.
Gamma - East - Bricks - Cube. Four Elementals.
Delta - South - Basin - Icosahedron. Two water elementals.

Second time:
Alpha - North - Kindling - Tetrahedron. No elementals.
Beta - South - Pinwheel - Octahedron. Four elementals.
Gamma - West - Bricks - Cube. Four elementals.
Delta - East - Basin - Icosahedron. Six elementals.

So evidently what we're doing for fire is correct, and we shouldn't have messed with earth.

Thus our main issue is with air and earth. Now by switching them around, we seem to have gotten them more wrong than we had previously. I am going to assume that every two elementals we triggered was an error. I am using the elemental items as a base.

Beta. West. Pinwheel. Octahedron. Only one thing was wrong here.
Beta. South. Pinwheel. Octahedron. Two things were wrong here.

Beta. West. Pinwheel. NotOctahedron?

Thus we can assume that the Pinwheel and West were correct. The issue lies with it being on the Beta pillar, or with the Octahedron.

Delta. South. Basin. Icosahedron. One wrong.
Delta. East. Basin. Icosahedron. Three wrong.

Still figuring out how we jumped from one mistake to three, perhaps my system is flawed.

Gamma. South. Basin. NotIcosahedron?

Gamma. East. Bricks. Cube. Two wrong.
Gamma. West. Bricks. Cube. Two wrong.

Evidently South has to be correct. And it's unlikely to be Gamma so it needs to be Beta or Delta.

Delta. South.  Bricks. Cube.

If anyone has corrections to this let me know. Otherwise let's make some checks and see if we can build on this.

EDIT: Thanks Aden.

CURRENT PROPOSAL

Alpha - North - Kindling - Tetrahedron.
Beta - West - Pinwheel - ?
Gamma - South - Basin - ?
Delta - South - Bricks - Cube

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I believe you're incorrect on the first time Yan.  There were 2 air elementals and 2 water elementals that combined to an ice elemental.  And there were 4 earth elementals.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I feel like 2nd time we should have moved the shapes/items, but not the pillars.  I feel like we were on the right track to move the earth 2 places (since we have 4 earth elementals 1st time), and air and water just 1 place (since we only had 2 elementals of each 1st time).

The fact that the number of earth elementals didn't increase the 2nd time (thankfully) is really throwing off my theory, though.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Also, that there were 2 water, 2 air, and 4 earth elementals the first time is really messing with me.  Maybe the 12 sided shape does go with one of the elements.  Otherwise, I don't see how 2 of the elements could only have 1 or 2 mistakes, whereas earth has 2 or 4 mistakes.

The proportion of possible mistakes to number of elementals created doesn't seem to match up.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
My hint: Remembering what Draz'gar blurted out earlier about directions and upon looking at the pilars one more time sudden inspiration hits you. Order. there is an order to how the elements and pillars should be arranged. Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta. A, B, C, D. Fire, Alpha. So fire is the first, but why is it the first?

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Regarding that hint, here's an idea I've been sitting on.  It's just my own musings.

What if fire is in the north position because fire rises?

What if earth should be in the south position because earth is the base/foundation?

What if air/water are east/west because water sits on the land and air blows across the land?

Or maybe not.  Maybe water/fire should be on opposite sides because they have opposite natures.  Same for air/earth.

Also, maybe there isn't a direct proportion of number of mistakes to number of elementals spawned.  Maybe it's as simple as DM rolls 1d6 for each elemental that is wrong.  Or 1d2 or 1d3 for each mistake.

At this point I have no idea what the right solution is.  It seems like we were closer previously than this last time, but I don't know what changes to make.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
There is a roll involved in the generation of elementals. After each failure the die/dice used increases in size. So there is some correlation between the number of elementals and how wrong you are, but the number of them you see isn't necessarily a direct result of how wrong you were.

Just to make it a little easier and clarify the hint I gave Draz'gar last time. Direction has no direct relation to element placement. so fire isn't north because of some reason. Fire goes on Alpha because of some reason and Alpha is in the north slot for another reason.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I'll be honest in  that I have absolutely no idea what to do now except guess. With no way to calculate how wrong we are, with what amounts to a four-directional array of guesses...

We have four elements.

Directions. These are tied to the letters of the greek alphabet.
Symbols. These are tied to both the greek alphabet and the elements.
Elements. These are tied to the greek alphabet. They are be tied to the shapes.
Shapes. These are be tied to the elements.

Fire = D4
Fire = Alpha.
Alpha = North.

If we want to have a hope in hell of getting this, we need to figure out how the association is being done.

Why is Fire associated with Alpha?
Why is Alpha associated with North?
Why is Fire associated with the D4?

-

Knowledge arcana: Fire is the most mobile element, because it has the smallest base and it also must be the sharpest since it is able to break up the other elements. Earth is the heaviest, most immovable and stack able. So it must have the most stable and therefor largest base.

Knowledge nature: Fire, earth, air and water are the first aspect of creation that everything is made of. all things have substance. So the elements must have bodies and therefor shapes. Everything that has a shape must be composed of triangles. Now there is possibly an infinite number of possible shapes that these triangles can form, but the elements must be the 4 most beautiful, that are unlike, but capable of resolution into one another.

-

I associated Fire with the D4 due to the reference of it having the 'smallest base' and the 'sharpest'.

The phase 'stackable' caused me to associate Earth with the D6. If I use the same logic I'm applying to fire right now, Earth should be represented by the D20.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Earth is the D6, you had that right.

Here is a little more info that might help or just confuse you more.

The physical world must have bodily form; it must be visible and tangible (31b). Hence, its ingredients must include fire and earth. Since fire and earth will have to be combined, there must be at least one other ingredient that serves to combine them. But since fire and earth are solids, we require two intermediates to combine them. Hence the gods created air and water, and arranged all four elements proportionally.

Each kind of matter (earth, air, fire, water) is made up of particles (“primary bodies”). Each particle is a regular geometrical solid. There are four kinds of particles, one for each of the four kinds of matter. Each particle is composed of elementary right triangles. The particles are like the molecules of the theory; the triangles are its atoms.

 there is only one kind of isosceles right triangle--namely, the 45°/45°/90° triangle--whereas there are “infinitely many” kinds of scalene. But of these “we posit one as the most excellent”, one “whose longer side squared is always triple its shorter side”. the scalene triangle, equivalently, as “one whose hypotenuse is twice the length of its shorter side”. (The angles of this triangle are thus 30°/60°/90°.)

 call the 30°/60°/90° triangles “a triangles” and the 45°/45°/90° triangles “b triangles.”

Each face is either an equilateral triangle (t) or a square (s). equilateral triangles (t’s) are made of a triangles. Squares (s’s) are made out of b triangles. each t is made of 6 a’s, and each s is made of 4 b’s.

a particle of fire is a tetrahedron (4-sided solid), made of 4 t’s consisting of 24 a’s altogether.

 a particle of earth is a cube (6-sided solid), made of 6 s’s consisting of 24 b’s altogether.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
... That actually helps a bit. You're not off my Christmas Card list. Yet.

Each particle of matter is made up of right-angled triangles. Thus the shapes we use need to have faces that can contain right-angled triangles.

If you draw a line from each angle of an equilateral triangle through the middle, you end up with six scalene triangles. Each right-angled.

Doing the same on  a square results in four isosceles.

Doing the  same on a pentagon (our beloved D12, and now represented by 'u') results in ten scalene.

Thus t = 6a and s = 4b. u = 10a

Thus a D4 = 4t = 24a
D6 = 6s = 24b
D8 = 8t = 48a
D12 = 12u = 120a
D20 = 20t = 120a

So we have three odd ones out here. The D6, the D8 and the D12.
The D6 has been confirmed, so that just leaves the D8 and the D12.

The D8 results in an unusual amount of triangles.
The D12 is an unusual face shape.

If someone could get the angles on a mercilessly bisected pentagon's triangles that would be wonderful.

Regardless though, based that these elements  are to be in  proportion, I suspect that the  D8 is the odd one out. Note that while 120 is divided evenly by 24, it is not divided so cleanly by 48. This ties into 'resolution by one another'. 24 and 48 work cleanly together, 48 and 120 not so much.

(Also note that 120/24 = 5. Interesting coincidence).

So let us hypothesise that the D8 is the red herring.

That leaves us with the D4, the D6, the D12 and the D20.

Fire is the D4.
Earth is the D6.

We are left with Air and Water, and the D12 and D20. Let's come back to this.



-

Drazgar's hint. Pillars must  be arranged in order. Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta.

Fire is Alpha, is North and is the D4. A hypothesis might be that the elements must be arranged on the pillars according to size.

Thus this could lead to:
D4 - Fire - Alpha - North
D6 - Earth - Beta - ?
D8/12 - ? - Gamma - ?
D20 - ? - Delta - ?

But this is shaky reasoning as the shapes are associated with the elements, not the pillars, as far as I know.

If there is an order, perhaps it is clockwise?

D4 - Fire - Alpha - North
D6 - Earth - Beta - East
D8/12 - ? - Gamma - South
D20 - ? - Delta - West

Now I was told earlier the shapes 'seemed' correct. In which case we might have

D4 - Fire - Alpha - North
D6 - Earth - Beta - East
D8 - Wind - Gamma - South
D20 - Water - Delta - West


Thoughts? This IS a combination that we have yet to try.

That many elementals, and our depleted resources, odds are very much against us even using all our hero points.  And then we're left to make another guess.

I'm okay with us leaving the gauntlet for now.  We can then do some research and come back with a better shot.  We should be sure to jot down the combos we tried, though, because when we leave the gauntlet, we lose access to the posts on that thread until we come back.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
oh sorry. you don't magically get the scroll. It's just a demonstration of how much they have left in inventory. so you pull out the tab and then head over to the counter hand over the tab and the money and someone brings you the scroll. No tabs left means they are out of that scroll. there are three tabs of comprehend languages, if you take one there will be two left.

BTW Dustil and Drazgar, you each gave Aden 9 gp when he and Yan went to purchase the scroll of comprehend languages.  I spent 5 gold of that 18, so I gave you each back 6.5 gp.

Not sure if we already discussed that, or you accounted for it on your character sheets.

Aden wants to go track down Sara Keyes and get a date on the books, but if some of the party would rather hang out at the monkey for a bit, then Sara can wait.  And then head back to the temple to find out more about the dark tapestry sect leaving the temple.  And see if he can sweet talk some oracles of life into recharging the party healing stick....

We're in the temple now. I don't think Safia knows about the dark tapestry sect? I didn't see it in the recap that Aden gave her.

GM,

Could we look in on this while we're in the temple now, and then head out to the town guard? Or is time a factor? I don't mind leaving and coming back, but just thought if we're there now, might as well. :)

Or is it a different temple?

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
There are two major temples in Arcadia. The temple of the Divines, set up as a place that all faiths can use for worship. Those who founded and run the temple believe that all faiths are but just one facet of the divine and only by coming to see and understand them all can one come closer to understanding "the Divine". Which is also part of the reason for all it's grandeur. that is meant to make it an attractive place for everyone to come to speak about and practice their faith and maybe while they are at it learn about others.

The second temple is a newer one created by Master Origen, a Dwarf Oracle of Earth. It is called the temple of many mysteries and that is were Aden lives, worships and does all the other oraclely stuff that he does. So aden wants to go back there and speak with Master Origen about why a certain sect of the temple left/ was kicked out.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
 i know i keep asking that, sorry.

also, everyone, i'm starting to use evernote to keep more detailed notes of the campaign and the different threads we've got going on.  it will cut down search time when we need to go back and remember something from a while back.

if you'd like me to send you an invite, so that you can all view, and even collaborate on the notebook, shoot me your email.  it's pretty basic at the moment, but can definitely be built up over time.

evernote is awesome, btw.  it lets you create notes, and organize them by notebooks, and you can access it from anywhere you have internet (computer, phone, tablet, etc).  the free version is sufficient for standard users, which all of us would be.

you can search by keywords, save images/screenshots from computer or device. supposedly you can even make pictures text searchable, but i haven't messed with that much yet.

if you'd rather not provide your email so i can officially share the notes with you, then i think these links will let you check them out (you might have to set up evernote):

I just gave it a good skim.  It confirms which shapes go with which elements.  What I can't confirm is which greek symbol those should go with, and which direction.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
According to my notes we had managed to get that far, although confirmation is reassuring. And we know Fire is North and Alpha. The problem is figuring out what the rest are. Maybe I can Loremaster a way to more information...

@ Mr. Main

Yes, and thanks to Aden, yes again. :)

The link Aden provided is the one that the Comprehend Language spell would grant, correct? It's a condensed version of the original (http://classics.mit.edu/Plato/timaeus.html ) written in Draconic and Gnome, which are languages Safia actually knows.

I was just waiting on Yanyeeku to unroll the scroll IC, because Safia hasn't actually seen it IC yet.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
We'll see how it plays out, but anyone have thoughts on these as potential ideas to keep our healing stick full?

Aden Bero:
Aden mentally considered some different options:

*They could promise to pay any spell donating oracles an increased fee for their spells, if they won.  The extra amount could be negotiated, starting at an extra 10% of usual cost.  It required the oracle to make the gamble that they would win to get paid, which was more likely with the donation of healing magics.

*They could just pay the normal price for spellcasting services.  But most of the party was strapped for cash. Aden wasn't sure Safia would want to go on a spending spree with Jace's money.

*They could offer to donate the healing stick to the oracles of life after the competition.  It was an expensive item, but as long as they continued to do well in the games, there'd be plenty more chances to make some hefty coin.  Adventurers got rich or died trying.

*They could continue to sweet talk and promise favors to any willing to donate their spells. Aden was a nice, and pretty well-liked guy.  He had certain charms with most women.  But he was busy, and money talks.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...

Definitely not the first option. It has too much of the 'if' factor for Safia's comfort.

All the others are good. In the Blackfrost Seers thread, Safia asked everyone what they thought about spending Jace's money. Aden said, more or less, that it was "ours to spend" considering they were trying to solve Jace's murder and Safia didn't disagree. She appeared satisfied with that response. So it's safe to say that Aden would feel more comfortable in the knowledge that Safia would be okay with spending the money on things to help out the team, and to help with the investigation.

Alternatively, it's kind of fun to watch Aden 'sweet talk'. :)

Yanyeeku:
"We should consider at least getting some rest soon as well." The bard commented. "We may want to tackle the Gauntlet as early as we can to prevent someone else getting there first."

I was thinking the same thing.  Do we want to try and squeeze in the gauntlet before the 3rd day competition?  We'll be at full health, and emerge at full health.  But we'll be short any spells/abilities we use in the gauntlet for the rest of the day.

Just a thought, my tactic of targeting the missile launcher may not work.  But I may also not get the chance to try if you guys are in melee with it.

It's likely a mechanical construct, would explain why electricity did not work there. Probably has DR to everything, since all I got was information on heavy armour and shielding with no known weaknesses.

Oh it has DR, and I'm just putting the electricity out there in case it only has like a 5 resistance (which seems unlikely) and I happen to roll a 6 or something. I suppose I could stop rolling since it doesn't matter lol

Are you asking us not to be in melee with it? If so, then I will have to revise my intended action, which was set up in the previous round (via PM query to the GM) and was to be completed in the current/following round. I was waiting on a reply to another question before I posted IC. But... I don't want to mess up Aden's move.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I want you to do what you want to do.  Always.  Just putting it out there that your tactics and my tactic might be at odds.  Maybe not.  And we have no way of knowing what is most effective at the moment.

I wonder if sonic damage would hurt.  I'm tempted to start blasting it with Sound Burst.

Mr. Main, could I take my turn normally, but also use a hero point to Act Out of Turn and take an immediate crossbow shot if it's missile port opens?  Basically a readied Hero Point action?

And if I can, could I also use a 2nd hero point at the same time to still get the +8 on my crossbow shot?  The d20pfsrd Hero Point rules say you can't use more than one per round...

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Mr. Main, I rolled a 21 on perception.  Based on that, can Aden get a description of how damaged the war reaver looks after a round of pummeling?  I'm trying to determine how effective melee attacks seem to be, so I can decide if it's worth it for me to continue holding out for a potential "kill shot".


Friendly reminder to team: it's not my desire to have Aden be the party healer, at least in combat.  But if you do need healing, please provide your current/max HP in your post, so that I am aware how critical your condition is.

Morien, what's your current/max HP?  Also, which would be your preference: Aden cast a healing spell on you, or Resist Energy (fire)?  You could also use a move action to dig the healing stick out of my pack, though I'll admit me casting Cure Moderate/Serious Wounds is most likely to get you back in the fight faster.

everyone can add santa's super special eggnog to their inventory. When consumed it grants the benefits of protection from evil, Aid and cure light wounds all as if cast by a third lvl caster. So protection from evil and aid would last three minutes. Aid would give you 1d8+3 temp hit points and and cure light wounds would heal for 1d8+3 hp.

TOUGH! I'm going to say the Atlas Titan from titanfall.  But having not played, it could easily be the Ogre or Stryder titans for all I know.

Honorable mention guesses:
  mechs from any of these games: http://www.pastemagazine.com/b...you-should-play.html

Metal Gear REX. Not really a class

Commando Man from the mega man series.  Also not a class.

You saying class also makes me think maybe smash brothers, but couldnt' think of specific character.

OOC: the number of missiles flying out and who gets hit might change since a couple people posted they might burn hero points if the missiles were fired again. So we might have to do some editing.

And in the mist, if you're adjacent to an enemy, concealment provides a 20% miss chance.  Further away is total concealment, a 50% miss chance.  It seems the war reaver is not affected by the mist, it was able to target Aden with a missile.

I don't want to use a standard action to dismiss the mist at the moment.

Yeah, I've been wanting to use this trick since we started the campaign.  I can see through fog, so I can shoot from within like I'm an invisible opponent, +2 to first attack each round vs targets flat footed AC.

Finally had a big enough combat area and tough enough foe to do this without making combat harder for my allies.  Turns out the damn thing can see right through the mist and followed me in.

attack 26 vs war-reaver ac is a hit. miss chance 73, does not miss. damage 7

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
We definitely should try challenging the gauntlet.  We come out of gauntlet at same health as we enter.  So Aden burns most of his spells to get us near full health.  We know how to beat most of the rooms with minimal damage, and if yan can fascinate the Minotaur, then we just need to get the last puzzle right.  Yan and Safia think they have a solution for that.

If have had Yan try to make up for it by protecting her, but that would have killed him outright, which wouldn't be in his personality.

WOW. That...sounds like a real party alright. A lot of dialogue with one person shooting most ideas down, LOL! =P

Edit: And I would have started by just touching my duplicate to see if there was substance (which I assume there would be). Then I'd test my dupe's memories, trying hard to concentrate on unrelated things in case telepathy was involved. I'd LIKE to do the Thunk maneuver but that's not a good idea lol.

well you guys are forgetting that the other yous are there and would not just sit idly and let you 'alone' do something. You might be able to identify some memories that the other one didn't have, but then the other you could always fabricate something and the other versions of anyone who used sense motive to try and see who was lying would cloud up the matter as well. After all it's not just your own duplicate out there. As for the substance part, if it is an illusion and you haven't "seen" through it you'd think the other you had substance. Without meta-gaming your way out of it, it's not so easy to figure out who is real and who isn't.

Oh I knew it wouldn't be easy. I just figured that their attempts wouldn't extend to trying to prove themselves as real the legitimate way. Instead they'd attempt to just take control of the other one. Essentially any attempts they engage in would be ultimately futile! And probably dangerous for the others!

Yeah, I haven't the foggiest. I'll take a wild guess and assume it's based off a character from... I think it was Shining Soul? The Shining game that was a tactical RPG. There's a guy in there who uses a robot walker to fight.

Honourable mention goes to the mech walkers that appear in a couple of Final Fantasy games and are usually piloted by players. But not a class.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
So the inspiration for the war-reaver was the Bounty hunter-Arsenal Mercenary spec from SWTOR (Star Wars The Old Republic). It might have changed a lot since I last played a few years ago, but they had a rocket punch which knocked the target backwards, a jet pack that could knock people away, an electro-dart that stunned people, a flame thrower, a crap ton of missiles and dual blasters that spammed a lot of shots. It was kinda fun. Ranged DPS with heavy armor, moderate hp and a few nice area control abilities. Yeah awesome. the only MMO that didn't get me bored after two months. It took like 6.

Your votes don't change anything I just thought I'd throw it in for fluff.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
So I feel I owe you guys a little bit of an explanation about why this is taking so long.

basically I decided the only fair way to handle this was to have some or my friends play through the gauntlet as team elgavasa and it's taking a while to finish solely because of the logistics of getting us together and running through it. They are almost done. They are at the final room, I decided to end it early last session since it was getting late and I didn't want them to be able to take the puzzle home and research the crap out of it on the internet. several of them would cuz they love "winning".  We get together on Monday to finish it. which means very late monday or at some reasonable hour on tuesday the suspense will be over and we'll know how Team Elgavasa faired.

I just reread through the two links you provided in-game, then honed in on specifics and reread again and again. I had to set it down for awhile and then come back to it, because of information overload. :P But then certain things just seemed to click. I'm looking forward to finding out if I got it right or not, regardless.

Speaking of emblems: I don't recall specifically; are they supposed to be placed/hidden throughout the town?

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
So the other group did beat it, but they kinda cheated. They knew Mr P assisted with the creation of that puzzle and new everything about it. So every time one of them would make a knowledge or wisdom check, he would clandestinely text Mr P for answers. Seeing as that wasn't exactly a clean run, it all came down to some checks I rolled for Pically. He made most of them, but failed enough to screw up enough to lose.

Everyone remember, on the game map 4 squares equals one 5' square.

Link back to this game

And the take 5 house rule

Mr. Main:
Adding a new house rule. taking 5. If you have +10 or more in a skill you can take a 5 instead of rolling.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
just a reminder if you are going to be making running jumps, there by not doubling the dcs for jumping, you need to make an acrobatics: balance check dc 10.

On jumping: if you have a 10 foot running start then the DC equals distance covered. Meaning that if you roll a 10 you jump ten feet. If you are doing standing jumps, you don't have a 10 foot running start, the DC is doubled. Meaning you need a 20 to jump 10 feet.

The only reason Dustil isn't running is because of Monk-y (see what I did there?) abilities that allow him to not only always be considered to have a running start and he can take 5 - and just has to be careful he doesn't sail too far lol!

That was for people so they know why I'm posting the way I am and not rolling. Mr. Main already knows.

Safia struggles a bit climbing across the ceiling of the second gap. it takes her 3 turns.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...

Hmm...just how good are Minotaurs at solving riddles?

I'm not so sure I'd classify the last room as a riddle. The answer was handed to us in the parchment received (the links the GM gave us). It was just a matter of narrowing in on the base facts and pushing aside all the additional information that clouded the answer. I had to read over it several times, stepping away in-between reading, before the answer finally jumped out at me. ...Or so I hope it's the answer. :)

In other words, I'm not sure Safia's as good at riddles, as she is good at gathering/deciphering knowledge.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Right so... A task to a girl of spirit. The language suggests we're talking a century or few ago (though I remember reading about it in stuff set in the middle ages; but that can't really be verified). I guess it'd be something typical to girls of that age. Sewing, embroidery, that sort of thing. Possibly cooking as well but it doesn't seem as likely.  They say a girl 'of spirit', so she's 'spirited', meaning that she's outspoken, that sort of thing. So something that would feel like a task would be sewing, or embroidery. I don't think girls were expected to knit, but that could be relevant as well.

Question is though, it never really makes reference to the class of girls. While the upper class would be playing with needles, would girls in the lower class be the same? I imagine they'd lean more toward cooking, though I suppose they'd learn how to darn and patch clothing.
That said most still probably would need to be able to do something with a needle. The very upper class would probably more do embroidery while maids and servants did more pedestrian needlework.

Second confines her to finish the piece. This is probably a parent (probably father) or a lock. You wouldn't be finishing a task like this in a prison; and referring to a room as 'confining' them doesn't seem as accurate. I suppose you could refer to societal restrictions or the like.

The third line is probably just fluff to fit the rhythm. Not sure though.

The fourth line though. Something "effects" her release. Effect as a verb is a bit unusual, but I believe it means that it would cause a release? If I'm right though, a combination of the first and second words would lead to a release of some sort from the "imprisonment" of a task that likely involves a needle or two. Or a frying pan. Pretty sure it's a needle though.

I'm going to hazard a guess that the "second" is probably "lock". I can't think of any other words for it that would fit this. Because even if it was a person, a lock likely would still be involved. Even if it's a metaphorical lock in the form of a human.

I'm afraid I don't know much about stuff with needles or frying pans. Maybe someone else has an idea?

Morien:

Disagreed. Only the "first" is a task. The second refers to something confining them. Typically (from what I've seen), riddles have a similarity to charades in that they have 'parts'. Usually individual letters, halves of a word, syllables, or a full word. I'm pretty sure in this case we won't be looking at letters.

After having time to sleep on this, and work... A few things come to mind. First is that I'm pretty sure 'lock' is set as our second part. You wouldn't tie someone up while they're doing a task, it'd be rather inefficient. But you could lock them in a room.

With that in mind... I thought over techniques in needlework. Darning, sewing, crocheting too. I went through them... And realised something.

"Hem" or "hemming" is a technique as well. In addition to being a part of clothing, you can "hem" things as a finisher. Which, if I'm correct, gives this riddle a remarkably dark tone.

Hem. Lock. Hemlock. A rather nasty poison. Pretty popular alongside nightshade as a poison in novels. It -is- arguably a form of release (if rather drastic), and girls/ladies/etc were more likely to take poison than to hang themselves. Or fall on a sword (which they wouldn't likely have).

So I propose that 'hemlock' is a possible solution.

My first is a task to a young girl of spirit

You could be tasked to hem something. I think it's very drastic to kill yourself over it, but I suppose boredom is a motivator for suicide. And combined with methods to enforce it...

And my second confines her to finish the piece,

A lock on a door. Or a lock in some regard. Probably on a door though. Metaphorical or literal.

How hard is her fate! But how great is her merit

This feels like really sarcastic fluff. She has a hard life, being tasked to hem things, but it shows her in a good light if...

If by taking my whole she effects her release!"

She takes hemlock to escape. Note the specific wording of "taking my whole". She's specifically taking it, which is a term associated with medicines/drugs in addition to gaining possession. The act of taking it causes her release, not what she does with it. So... I am led to assume it would be ingesting a drug of some form. Either a hallucinogen, or poison. But the words match up with poison.

So... Hemlock. Such a cheerful riddle. A rational choice, truly.

Who the hell came up with this riddle?

It's not drastic. It's very Jane Austin dramatic and fitting, if you think about things people say even today when tasked with something they don't want to do. Just shoot me, for example. So a young woman who hates the tedium of sewing, might, in similar jest, think of poison as a way out.

Maybe dawn.  Death of millions of stars.  Used for navigation .

I guess, maybe, Dawn can be looked to in the night sky?  Or is it technically no longer night once dawn light is on horizon?

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...

Now you have me second-guessing myself. :)

You can navigate (guidance) by the sun, moon, stars, dusk, and dawn.

Which one is more closely associated with hope?

And which one can you still look to in the night sky?

Which one is death to millions?

Dawn belongs to day and Dusk belongs to night, with three stages of twilight in-between on either end of the horizon (day or night).

I have over-thought myself into an 'I-don't-know'.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
If we discuss looking at them in the night sky for hopes of guidance, we have two things. The moon, and the stars. Astrology is a form of divination magic and guidance; as well as both being used for navigation as mentioned earlier.

The moon itself crawls from the depths. Moonrise and all that. So the question remains as to the 'death of millions' part. I want to be perfectly sure on this before we settle. How can we link the moon to the death of millions? If we can sufficiently argue a link, then I will support the moon as being the answer.

@Main: How well known is the effect of the moon on the tides in this setting? And is there more than one moon?

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Yanyeeku:
...How can we link the moon to the death of millions?


The best that I have is that when the moon rises it becomes night and therefore it's the death of day (for millions).

Although the sun would be death to (viewing) millions of stars, as Aden said, the sun cannot be seen in the night sky (if the riddle is based on earth facts), and therefore that would rule out the sun.

I don't know what else would crawl from the depths that's fitting.

I'm sticking with the moon, because it's the only answer I can come up with. That doesn't mean it's right, but at some point we need to give the ever-patient Minotaur an answer.

Is there anyone who hasn't chimed in yet with their thoughts?

oh also you guys can roll checks for hints. It is a game after all. Though I am going to limit the total number of checks all of you as a team can make to 3.

Int, Wis, knowledge nature. If you can make a good argument for why it makes sense I can be convinced to let other skills apply.

Death of millions...OH! could it refer to stars? I mean, it takes them millions of years to "die" (which could be a twist on death of millions) or maybe how long in years it takes the light to reach us (or is that thousands of years)? From the depths I crawl ashore....if it's being poetic...the depths of space?

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Okay I will admit I'm at a loss at this stage. After my performance last riddle, I have truly crashed and burned. Very depressing.

So it's a literal death of millions (allegedly), involves crawling from the depths and is used for guidance in the night sky.

Let's try to break it down a bit. The most specific part of this is the night sky.

Elements in the night sky:
Stars
Planets
The moon

If we refer to stuff we might see while looking at said sky:
Nocturnal flying animals
Nocturnal flying insects

Let's break it down further. What would crawl out of the depths of the ocean? Metaphorically or literally.
The moon
Some could argue that planets and stars would also 'crawl' out, though we don't really get a star-rise or a planet-rise, only a moonrise or a sunrise.

Which leads us to the Moon being responsible for the death of millions.
Now there could be an argument for this being the tides itself. Tidal shifts can actually lead to death. Given this is also Pathfinder, it could be arguably linked to lycanthropy as well (I've forgotten the lycanthrope rules, but lore-wise...). The moon itself has not DIRECTLY killed anyone. But indirectly...
Not to mention it is a common navigational aid in the same sense that the sun is. Rises in one direction, sets in the other.

In the interests of time, and unless we can argue another option, does anyone want to take the guess of the moon? Preferably not Safia as in-character she's the one with the possible puzzle solution. If it's wrong, would rather not lose her.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I'm absolutely stumped too. I had Safia state IC that celestial bodies don't crawl, they rise...so she decided her initial answer (the moon) was incorrect. This was based on the Knowledge Nature roll, but if this was real life, I'd argue that. There are quite a few references in literature and just plain metaphorical speak, where the moon is referred to as crawling from the depths.

But for the purpose of the riddle, Safia said it doesn't crawl.

I have tried and tried to figure this one out, to make all the lines fit to the same answer, but I give. I have no idea what the answer is.

well what he said was "If I win you jump off the ledge and if you win I'll jump off the ledge." Now he meant all of you, but if you want to try and play it off as one person per wrong guess he would probably go with that. It certainly makes his odds better if you decide to forgo the riddle contest and just attack. That said You guys don't have to accept the deal. All that matters technically is getting through. Breaking an agreement won't disqualify you. However it is being recorded so if you do that it might effect your reputation. If you do break the agreement though you can figure it's back to being actively hostile.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Yanyeeku:
If we discuss looking at them in the night sky for hopes of guidance, we have two things. The moon, and the stars. Astrology is a form of divination magic and guidance; as well as both being used for navigation as mentioned earlier.


Maybe it's a crab.

Or a scorpion.

Or a snake.

Scorpions crawl from the depths (live in burrows in the ground), though not necessarily "ashore".
The Deathstalker Scorpion kills over 50,000 people per year.
Astronomers/Astrologers look to the constellation of Scorpius for guidance.

Along the same line of thought would be the constellation of Serpens, or 'a Snake,' but Scorpions kill more people than snakes do. Or the constellation of Cancer, a Crab... because thousands of red crabs crawl ashore every year and die in the sands (or get scooped up and eaten by humans and die).

I'm reaching, and that's based on rl. I honestly don't even know if there are scorpions in this setting, but it's a thought.

@DM, what type of knowledge check do we need to make for general knowledge on constellations?  Just to know names of common constellations to see if any match description from riddle.

At this point, my best guess is that it's a constellation of an amphibious creature that as a species eats millions of plankton or something.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I don't know about Scorpion. I could be wrong, but I don't know, it just doesn't strike me as the correct answer. The 'ashore' is part of it. I suppose it depends on how poetic the riddle is.

For a second I thought about a meteor wiping out the dinosaurs and people wishing on them...but "from the depths I crawl ashore" I don't think applies to that.

I think we need to vote on an answer and guess, or else attack the Minotaur. We've been spending a looooong time on this riddle.

There are three types of amphibians: frogs and toads (Anura), salamanders (Urodela), and the caecilians (Apoda, limbless, serpentine amphibians). The caecilians eat insects, if that matters. I was focused more on the 'serpentine' part. It's just as good a guess as any at this point.

Did you receive anything of use on your Knowledge Religion roll?

Dustil Kraye:

I agree.

I (and Safia) vote serpent, because it's amphibious and it's a constellation in the night sky.

Before I vote, and I do recommend caution...

DM: Constellations of this location. Based on Northern Hemisphere or Southern Hemisphere? If the constellations are based on the Northern Hemisphere, then I'll be fine with it. But if they're Southern...

Well Serpens is a Northern constellation. Scorpius is Southern.

Likely not Serpens then; while the Serpent Bearer can seen in both hemispheres; I don't think we could justify the symbol of Asclepius alongside "death of millions". Cancer maybe? It's Southern. And it indirectly has "death of millions" applicable to it in multiple ways, some of which wouldn't be recognise din this setting admittedly.

Falling star

Make a wish when seeing in night sky "look to with hope"
Death of millions - think theoretical meteor that killed the dinosaurs


Crawl from depts to shore ....  Well, not a perfect fit, but depths could be space, By time they pass through atmosphere they are broken up and falling in fragments, kinda fits imagery of crawling (broken, humbled, etc)

Plus a falling star that lands in the ocean could create a tsunami...,

That's my best guess

-

Regarding the guesses... We're in an awkward spot now. I want to be sure we have any doubts hammered out before I guess. Especially since once I'm gone, you won't have any more chances.

So it's not a shooting star, but it's very close to it. Remember we still need to look to it for guidance, but it also must result in the death of millions.

Perhaps we should go for meteorite? Except that term probably would be foreign in this setting. But it's shooting star in all but name, as the meteorite is the one that actually collides with the planet.
Cancer the constellation could work, but I think we'd be deviating a bit too far. The moon is out as we know.

So I'd hazard that it's a single celestial object rather than a group of them, though I'm not entirely certain.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I'm on our side. Which is why I'm bringing this up. Consider the consequences of breaking the verbal contract of the wager:

First off - we come off as dishonourable. That'd put us as the antagonist in the audience's eyes. Doesn't exactly make our team come off well. Regardless of how well we do, our future performance will be tainted by that. Our entire team would likely be seen as complicit, not just Aden and (possibly) Dustil.

Second off - the minotaur would also not be bound by the contract. From the sounds of it, he's perfectly capable of taking us out with little issue based on what you guys told me last time.

well to be fair, dustil made a wisdom check and I told him the little exploit. I had forgotten that I included "and get sent out". Apparently Teng's even smarter than I thought. Lol. That said Dustil being caught in the web doesn't dishonor you, but looking at the wording you brought up. If he does escape and returns he'd need to jump again. Which brings us into some very interesting territory... Pm time duh duh duhn! Nah nothing ominous I swear. Just gonna talk about spiderchow.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Well, Shame on us, as we agreed to getting sent out if we guess wrong.  And the Minotaur only agreed to jump down, but not get sent out.  So he fair and square can use the exploit that we're arguing against using.

I don't really care about being honorable.  Nor does Aden.  He's chaotic good.  This is a competition.  There are plenty of other teams that are more than fine being "dishonorable".  Or logical.  Or whatever.  They play to their strengths to try and win, and so far the crowds have only seemed to respect them for it.

We're not Paladins.  It's okay to be tricky and play dirty.  So I'm unconvinced.

Now it's a fair point that the Minotaur may break the deal because Aden and Dustil are trying to exploit the rules.  But the Minotaur seems so far like the type to state his objection to their attempts before just launching into an attack.  So I think the attempt is worth it to get another man back.

But seems Dustil is unwilling to be levitated, so it's all moot.

And I still think we should've just fought him and could've won.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I'm perfectly fine with you taking whatever action. I just want you to be fully aware of what can result from it so you won't be taken by surprise. Also note that the minotaur is probably a barbarian with reach and Superstition, so it'll be a case of beating him down before he beats us down, Combat Reflexes and all.

Yan is TN. He's fine with people making decisions as long as they're informed decisions. Also means he avoids getting his own hands dirty as a result. As a Monk however, Dustil may have objections to this, which was the other reason for me bringing it up. Lawful can be played in different ways; but I figured people probably had forgotten about the exact wording of our wager, hence me bringing it up.

It's very rare I don't strongly consider the consequences of my characters actions.  One of the luxuries of a play by post.

Dustil can simply be unwilling to be levitated, per the spell description, and it nips the issue in the bud.

Eh. It was less an issue of Good vs Neutral and more an issue of (possibly) Lawful vs Chaotic. It can easily be argued that simply backing out on a wager isn't an alignment issue. Lawful alignments can be expressed in many different ways. That was just an afterthought.

My main concern was the warning of how it will look to the crowd as well as the fact that I'm not sure we can take him. Remember I don't know how well he fought you guys, all I know is that you lost and he has a reach weapon, combat reflexes, and is probably a barbarian. Reason for concern. We're all human, we can miss things.

Honestly, I think it's absolutely ridiculous to 'assume' the audience is going to think poorly of Dustil (or Team Arcadia for that matter), because he got caught in a web instead of 'getting' sent out and Aden is clever enough to suggest levitating him out of the web and out of danger. Good on you, Aden! I had no ideas on how Safia could help, so I'm glad you stepped up.

So, c'mon. Seriously? Backing out on a wager?

Not even.

Playing a loophole should be admired as Team Arcadia showing their wit (Intelligence).

Aden coming to Dustil's aid should be admired as a show of Team loyalty, and again, cleverness.

Dustil fulfilled his part of the agreement. He jumped off. He absolutely did not back out on a wager.

Chaotic Good here, so I'm with Aden.

I also think it's a great insult to imply that anyone here hasn't considered the consequences of their character's actions or words.

The only thing I can see that would earn Team Arcadia disfavor in the audience's eyes is how terrible we are at solving or coming up with riddles. Or how two team members are publicly showing the audience that they don't have their other team members' backs, that riddle rules are more important than teamwork. That'll get a team's reputation to drop.

...And this is me, considering the consequences.

Peace out.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
... Might I point out that my concern was that you guys are in fact human and could have missed something? I'm not saying that you didn't think things through, I'm thinking you genuinely missed or forgot something and want to make sure you're aware first. Please stop jumping down my throat. As I said, repeatedly, I'm not objecting to anything.

... But you do raise a point with the wording there. If the process fails to send you out, then that's on the process, not on you.

I wasn't objecting to the whole "getting caught on the web" thing. I don't know how you guys got sent out last time. I was pointing it out to the whole "levitate him back up" thing.

I'm not saying "I don't support you, stop". I'm saying "be careful". If you would prefer to not have warnings, please let me know.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...

Apologies. It wasn't my intent to jump down anyone's throat. I was actually expressing my opinion, throwing in my two cents. I'm human and I have this habit of sharing my thoughts sometimes too. The written word is generally taken as the reader sees it, rather than in the voice of the writer. So, again. Not jumping down anyone's throat. Just discussing.

Also, this is role play, so what our characters do or say doesn't necessarily reflect what 'we' would do. In other words, there might be times when a PC misses something, because the player is keeping in-character. They're missing something on purpose. So yeah, in-character Yanyeeku could issue warnings. That would be in-keeping with your character. ...Just as it might be in-character for another PC to ignore said warnings or disagree.

I feel as though in such instance, that the one being warned shouldn't be warn-pushed to the point of the 'player' feeling pressured to play out of character because their fun doesn't mesh with the warning.

The motto here is 'have fun'.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Ah yeah. My main concern was that the player was aware more than anything. I've made errors before due to misremembering something or not realising something my character did. Had I remembered or known something out of character, then I'd realise that my actions wouldn't make as much sense.

At the same time done I've something because it would be more in-character even if I wouldn't do it out of character. The main thing is that the player is aware more than anything. Communication being what it is, it's difficult to tell in a vacuum if someone is doing something in character in spite of what they know, or because of what they don't know.

But yeah. Yanyeeku was offering a warning in-character because that would be what he'd do; but he wouldn't feel like he'd be the right person to go any further with that. I was offering one out of character in case something was forgotten, given it has been over a month since we initially made the post with the wager.

Not going for the approach "You shouldn't do that". More going for "You know about this right? You do. Cool." and moving along to see what happens.

 Ehh, Morien wasn't quite so worried about the webs catching him as what happened thereafter (Morien's all for getting Dustil out of the webs, btw), but he's more concerned about what happens afterwards.

 If Dustil can come back into play after getting caught in the webs, then so can Teng... and THAT'S what worries Morien.

 Well, I don't necessarily mind keeping Dustil now that the riddle contest is passed. His whole argument was that, if Dustil came back up after losing, so could the minotaur (which would defeat the point of the riddle contest). Now the argument is moot.

Drazgar, I can't tell if that's just a statement or if you are upset.  The only reason I can levitate Dustil back up is because he landed in the spider web.  Drazgar didn't land in the spider web, but fell, and was teleported out of the gauntlet.

Aden takes 20 on perception, as DM allows.
For traps etc, perception is 17.


If you take 20 you get a 17? Or your perception is 17 base? =)

You cannot take 20 on perception checks to notice traps.

So "far northeastern" - you mean the one with the red pole on it all by its lonesome in the corner?

And "eastern" the red pole one that has the tightrope going from the starting area to the right wall?

Keep in mind there are also rocky walls that you can climb on, though I don't remember how tough those were.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Mr. Main:
hmm, I'm gonna go with no on this one.



wouldn't it depend on the type of jump used? Since Jaunt is a standard action and normal jumps are move-equivalent, it would be a legitimate use of a turn.

 a running jump would be a no-go since run is a full round action...


 ... though I could also see a ruling that jaunting during a jump could raise the DC by (let's say +2 per 5ft jaunted) because of trajectory change (with maybe a feat that could halve the DC increase), meaning it would be possible but also potentially very dangerous.


 This is just my 2cp on the matter though. I've got a terrible acrobatics score :P

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Dustil Kraye:
Morien, the reason I even asked is because a lot of the gaps are more than 50ft which means even Shadow Jaunt won't get you there. I did a lot of counting squares from a lot of different angles staring at the map, lol.


 Which is why I suggested a fair workaround to the jump + jaunt thing. It can be assumed that Morien jaunts and ties to any ledges that he can reach while Dustil saves his for the more difficult ones (since I believe it takes you longer to recover between jaunts).

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Just because something is a move action and another thing is a standard action does not mean it is reasonable to do one in the middle of another because you get both on your turn.

I'm not allowing it.

 Hey guys?

 As I've finally been beginning to get my creative mojo back after a long slump, I've been considering picking RPG Maker back up and trying to make something with it again. The chances I actually finish anything I make is probably less than 1% but I thought I'd ask you guys anyway.

 I was thinking of taking Morien's story and putting it into a game. Would any of you mind if I base the other PCs off your characters?

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Mr. Main, any chance you're feeling generous to allow us option to heal up our damage prior to having put the crystals in the door?  Looking back through the thread, most/all of us have taken some....

Do we want starting formation to be close together (to defend each other and ensure we can all reach enemy) or further apart (to protect against area of effect)?

Close together could look like this, with Dustil in back due to best movement speed:

     M
X <<  AD
     S

Either way, Aden should be near someone.  Protect the squishy caster!  Though I have a 21 AC and 35/51 HP, not sure how that compares to everyone.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Mr. Main:
Aden grabs the one representing fire and Safia grabs the one representing air.


Actually, she would have wanted them removed them in the same order they were placed: D12, D4, D8, D20, D6. And then the plan was to place them back in in reverse order.

Safia:

"If no has a spell to return him,"
Safia mused openly, "then we could try removing the crystals from the door and replacing them in reverse order to send him back."



But...now I'm wondering if they should be placed in the same order, except for D12. Such as: D4, D8, D20, D6, D12.

But maybe I'm overthinking it.

Anyway, Dustil, I guess D20 would be the next one Safia grabbed, which would leave D6 and D12 (for Aden and Dustil)

So let me know how much you guys heal and stuff. Also what are you doing next. There was discussion but I'd like to know what exactly you do next.

Also just to make things go quicker, the egg and the crystals have stopped glowing so you would need to restart everything to get the ball rolling again.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...

Well dammit man. :P

Okay, so I believe this is what we're doing:
  • We restart everything (per Mr. Main).
  • Then we place the (glowing) crystals in the door in the exact opposite order from how they were placed on the pedestals.
  • Then, if that doesn't work, we follow Morien's wonderfully wicked Plan C: "... which is put the crystals back in in the original order and then disassemble the warden, repeating until he's willing to help us."


Safia's HP 12/41, so however much healing is done, I leave to Aden to decide. :)

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Morien, your plan is too vague to act on.

I vote that DM fast forward. Party will continue tactic of activating doorway and summoning Marshall of elements, only to immediately remove the crystals.  Goal is to wear down Marshall so he will parlay.

I also vote we continue to use available healing to keep party members at approx 40 hp as long as possible.

Eventually Marshall will knock us out of the gauntlet or give in.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Morien, I don't understand what is happening in that comic strip.

@everyone.  Should we just leave the gauntlet and save our resources?  Or attempt an all out attack?  I don't think we can beat the Marshall.  But if we leave, there's a good chance another team meatsbus to the gauntlet tomorrow and wins.  Or wins today.  This could be our last chance.  So I think we have to go for it, even if a waste of healing resources.

I feel like we're missing something that would allow us to open the door and not have to fight the Marshall, but my knowledge checks don't seem to have helped in that regard. No one latched on to (or seemed to acknowledge) the banishment idea, so I'm guessing that wasn't doable?

So, yeah. I'm out of ideas and will go with majority vote.
Mr. Main
 GM, 1311 posts
Tue 23 May 2017

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
banishment is a 6th lvl spell, which means you'd need to be caster lvl 11 to cast it more or less. Dismissal, the weaker version, is a 4th lvl spell and you would need to be caster lvl 7 to cast that. Which means that those are kinda dead ends for the current encounter since no one is high enough of a level in the party to cast them. It also only sends it back. So if you summon him again you would need to cast either of those spells once more.

Sorry your being a less experienced player and not knowing that slipped my mind when I gave you the hint.

In other news all of you will kick yourselves once you figure it out.

Took awhile but you guys got it. Even though there were five sockets in the door, you were only supposed to put the D12 in it. I thought that after the first, and second, attempt you guys would realize that. After all the other crystals were being used to "reveal" the door in the first place. Good job though. Now the real question is: "was that the final trap?" Is the puzzle room really the last room in the gauntlet?

Do you have ANY idea how many times I read through that blasted 'scroll'?!

Thursday night, I sat down and made bullet points of what we had done, what the GM had posted, and then went step-by-step through the spark notes (scroll) several more times to try and find what I was missing. Between that and rereading the GM IC posts, I realized that everything we created was drawn into the egg, so we only needed to place it and not the others.

Whew!

sorry about the delay folks. My keyboard started messing up. The R key when pressed would randomly make my computer think I hit several other keys (not always the same ones) along the same row. Which isn't supposed to happen since I have what is supposed to be a pretty good mechanical keyboard. So it took a little time to sort out and that issue made it kinda impossible to actually type anything. Anyway updating tonight. It's good to be out of the gauntlet.

Lol, not sure if he blocked you or not, or if it was user error, but there's no link in that post. =)

Also, I hope the GM's okay. I think he said his monitor was dying back in August, but he hasn't posted in a while.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
shit. Sorry. I did not mean to just disappear. I've just been over loaded with work. Been putting in 70+ hours for the last three weeks. Fortunately I'll be returning to a normal work schedule soon so We'll be picking back up shortly. Has it really been a month since I'v posted something? Guys feel free to poke the shit out of me when something like that happens. I'll get some sort of post up tonight for you guys.

Gonna wait to see if the GM throws anything at us between here and the magic shop before I put in the request. It's nothing particularly expensive, but it IS something I've been wanting to do now for a year or so :P

We each got 5000 gold for winning today's competition.

Which reminds me, Aden needs to look up Sara about that date.

Click the “all” link on the day 3 thread where we fought the mech, which puts the entire thread on one webpage.  Then ctrl+f search 5000, you’ll find the post where it was awarded.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Yeah I should apologize to you all. I did not intend for the game to end like this and I should have said something sooner rather than just let it sit. I guess I was just kinda naively hoping personal circumstances would change and I could just pick the game up again, but that's not really fair to you guys. You all have been great and have put a lot into your characters and the campaign itself giving it a lot more breadth and character. I had originally intended to have a co DM to help run a lot of the back end stuff. There were a bunch of NPC teams, as well as villians and other groups and I was overly ambitious in wanting things to kinda grow organically. So instead of having a hard and fast script a lot of it was decided by rolls. I guess a better way to describe it would be instead of paving a road I kinda intended to throw a bunch of rocks into a pond and describe the ripples. Also the next day's competition was going to be a killer and it was just to much for me to set up.

I'll spoil it a little for you since we'll never get to play it. But it was going to be a team free for all platform battle. Basically the field would be a series of raised 15 ft circular platforms on poles about 10 feet from each other. Each team was going to pick a position on the perimeter with the teams with the higher scores choosing last. in the center of the field would be a 20 ft platform with a stone dais with a odd looking cross like object on it (think a bopit). by manipulating that you could do things like randomly raise and lower the surrounding platforms, cause a constant gust of wind and control it's direction, cause burst of flame to shoot up when people move between platforms and raise or lower the central platform. the last team standing would win. getting knocked off, surrendering or being knocked unconscious would eliminate you.

 Considering the number of teams (and NPCs) involved it was going to be a bitch to run. But it would have been as cool as it was going to be chaotic. Anyway like I said I'm sorry the game ended up dying like this, but I enjoyed Dming for you all and hope you all find a better managed game that is more fun than this one has been.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I don't suppose you could just make some choices, do some narration, and then just have a final task thing with just us and one other team instead? Simplify things up and keep going? If not, I understand, just will be sorry to see this game go.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I could do something like that. I would need some time before I could restart it. We would also lose a bunch of the spaghetti plot threads spread about, but I could tie in some of that with the narration. So yeah if you guys are still interested in a couple weeks I could start this thing back up. It would not be anywhere as sandboxy though.

OK everyone please level up your characters to 8. I just have a few more things to handle with the summary and then we can proceed to end game. End game is much more linear and straight forward with a lot less to manage.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
So I started trying to semi play this race out, but that's kinda silly so I'm just going to kinda wavy line it and put you at the end of the race. I'll post some bullet points of it just so you have a general sense of what happened. The real question is do you want to try and see if you can make it through the final day scenario or just fast forward, with a few bullet points for story ends, to the final fight?

actually I'll even gloss over most of the race itself. because it was just an event after all.  The real fun was supposed to start after the race.

Sorry about the wait. I'm a terrible online DM. That said there is the condensed version of what happened.

oh and if there were other threads you wanted to chase down let me know and I'll add them to the summary before the part where you guys rushed off to the graveyard of swords.

Oh and I know I cutscened you guys really hard there at the end. I normally don't try to abuse the common tropes as much as I did with the "evil bad guys explains his scheme to you as he enacts it" but this is the end and it easier to explain it all now so I did.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...

So it turns out that I didn't up Safia's HP on the last leveling up, so she actually has a current HP total of 27 and isn't out of the fight yet.

Anyone have any ideas on how best to annihilate this creature?
