Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...

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.

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.

Oh, I've been absolutely certain of that this whole time. I keep thinking it's just right there, under my nose and I can't see it. Bah! :p

Thank you for the explanation of the spells/caster level. I was wondering. :)

Yeah try sword.  If that doesn't work, maybe we can "attack it with the elements"

Create water spell.
Not sure about wind, maybe electricity covers that.  No gust of wind spell or anything in my repertoire.

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...
honestly I didn't think you guys would have this much trouble with the puzzle. I want you guys to answer it, but I don't want to give it away.

anyway the puzzle is reset. So got anything else you want to try?

Seems like we're not puzzlers. :) We also had trouble getting in the door of the brothel or whatever.

 Nope, I'm pretty much done with the puzzle.

 I'm the kind of guy that goes strait to the strategy guide when a game throws me puzzles.

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

Re: OOC part 2: the revenge...


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!

Safia's going to step into the light now. Even if it's not the last room, it has to be a change of scenery, lol.

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