Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
After that latest barrage of attacks, are any of the insects left?

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Just for some context, you are at C14 and the evil thundercloud is forming at IJ14-15.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Is this a "free" recovery or using one of our recoveries to heal?

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
You are basically getting 1 (or 2) added to your total recoveries.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
It will be a tight race if you are to get to the tower ahead of the steadily expanding cloud of doom!

You have two choices:
Take a circuitous route to avoid the worst of the collapsing hellhole or rush on right through the eye of the storm:

Circuitous
You are dashing over treacherous ground in the dark, with the glow of the hellhole and random bolts of lightning from the clouds of steam spreading above it.

- Party is hit by d8 lightning bolts.
- Make a Str, Dex or Con roll DC20 to keep the pace (relevant skills apply). Fail and you get hit by an additional lightning bolt.

Lightning bolt: +10 vs PD, 3d8 damage.

Then you need to fight d6 steam elementals (each a L4 challenge) to win the keep.

Eye of the storm
Conditions as above, plus the ground is literally falling away beneath you, with gouts of steam and sharp iron girders forcing their way into the air.

- Make a Str or Dex roll DC25. For each 5 you fail, lose one recovery.
- Party is hit by 2d6 lightning bolts.

You will arrive at the outpost ahead of the steam elementals and can press on to the gate.

You can split the party too, in which case the eye of the storm crew can rally the defenders against the steam elementals.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Also, since none of you used a reroll last combat you can carry it over for the challenge rolls :)

In reply to The Empire (msg # 326):

OOC-Well, sounds like Circuitous is the route for me. I don't suppose shadow walk will help here?

OK, since it seems to be the consensus, go ahead and make your posts/rolls. Good luck :)

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Apols Vethryn, just saw your post. The gate is in a sub-cellar of the tower, which you are fighting outside. Only Sigmund has been there, so you can't teleport. Feel free to edit you post, you can still start heading for the gate but remember Sigmund has the deactivation sigil. Meanwhile will resolve the combat to date.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
With respect, Empire, you missed post 449; I posted a few weeks ago that Sigmund handed it off to the "arcane types." I handed the sigil off. I had originally intended to give it to Gilad, Vethryn, but since you missed that and for the sake of moving things along, we'll say you have it.

I revised a couple posts to make it clear.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Huzzah! Thank you for the level-up.

Should we consider this a full rest as well, or are we still as low on Recoveries and the like as before?

Good question Sigmund.

I've leveled up Durum. He's much more durable now.

Relationship rolls (it looks like someone has the Emperor's attention):
  15:54, Today: Durum Stoneguard rolled 3 using 1d6 with rolls of 3.  High Druid, Conflicted.
  15:54, Today: Durum Stoneguard rolled 11 using 2d6 with rolls of 5,6.  Emperor, Conflicted.
