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.

 If we get him to agree, we'll get multiple guesses... and Safia needs to remain in the gauntlet for us to have any chance of success.

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

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Cancer constellation could also fit.  Like falling star better

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
 Well, I got us 6 answers to the question. I'm going second-to-last (since I'm supposed to be the one asking the riddles unless someone else wants to take it over) and Safia is last because she has the key to the last room.

There ya go. Dustil's really only useful in fights anyway. Or when there's jumping. Or climbing. lol

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
We need Morien for riddles. For the next room Aden will be needed to get Safia across as I recall it's another jumping room. Which means if Drustil is wrong, it's either Drazgar or Yanyeeku to take the risk. Question is, which of us can we afford to lose more if we're wrong a second time?

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I still think it might be Cancer! And I'm just planning in advance. :P Note I said IF Dustil is wrong. Frankly I'm hoping you're right and this becomes a nonissue.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
sorry about the delay. Been looking at a house that I might buy. It's needs a lot of work and is up for sherif sale so I needed to do some scrambling to figure out what it needed and if I could get the money. So I've been a little distracted lately. It's also caught the eye of a few other people so I might not get it, but I'm hopeful since it's a good opportunity. anyway back to the game.

*crossing my fingers*

I hope you get the house and you can afford to fix up how you want it. :)

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Pre-congrats on the house, hopefully! Hope you're able to get it! :)

-

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...
Since meteor and shooting star are so close, I'd guess cancer first.d

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
I think I'm going to blow a hero point. I'm still not certain about meteor and once I go out there's no more margin for error.


Also I would have blown one earlier but I totally forgot we even had hero points until just now. Sorry Draz/Dustil.

Editing post.  Using heat vision goggles to see Dustil, cast levitate, and lift to safety

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
Yan, first off, who's side are you on?

Secondly, are you suggesting that Dustil purposefully exposed himself to the danger of being eaten by spiders?

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.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
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.

Well I wouldn't have tried "cheating" without the DM prompt honestly. So if it truly would be cheating... Sigh.
