The golem shatters, just as the fireball is thrown.

Please make three wild swing rolls; 9 vs Ryojin, and 10 vs the ogres, i will roll to see who is hit.

Re: The Black Tower
Haveron will leave the hand be, given the current situation, and examine the wardrobe in depth.  As long as he is not in danger, he will expand his search to the room as well, although he doesn't exactly know what to look for.

Within the wardrobe is a hooded robe.


Observation lets you see behavior in a group, search lets you find hiding places. Per grades what you can see.



The fireball whizzes past Ryojin and hits something metallic.

I rolled... it was Gorgath.


Oh, recent lookup on observation skill lets you use it to find secret doors by traffic patterns/handprints etc.

Berry will examine the robe. "Basically everything in here is soaked with magic. I bet this is magical too. We should take it, since we're robbing the place."

The hoodedrobe is pristine andheavy. It is not magical, but appears to be made of a combination of spidersilk and metallic thread... it has DR2 and counts only as clothing.

Re: The Black Tower
Haveron can see the quality of the cloak, as an armorer.  However, it's not something he can use.  As Berry examines it, he leaves the room to go tell the rest of the group it's now safe to enter again.  As Haveron is not skilled at rummaging a room, he wants someone else with a more practiced eye to do it.

Re: The Black Tower
Berry, gaving no armor, might be more interested in it.

With that, the ogres head out of the building to collect their dire sheep and depart.

Gareth is a little annoyed at the response.

"What did he expect from the defences? My fireballs barely scratch him compared to what that Golem would have done...and I thought helping each other out was what we were here for. I was trying to assist him..."

Re: The Black Tower
Haveron takes a stern line with the fire mage.  His brows furrow, and he shows more than a little anger at the comment.

"Gareth, I expect you to apologize to them, and I mean now.  You may be accustomed to fire, but for the rest of us it is quite painful.  Don't be a callous fool.  Those golems would have done quite a lot of damage if not for their help.  That comment was assinine, and I won't tolerate you treating your friends that way."

Haveron underscores with a cold, challenging stare, directly into the eyes of the fire mage.  It also does not seem like he's blinking much either.

In reply to Haveron Stormwal (msg # 117):

"I did apologise...how many times does he want an apology? I meant it then, and still do. If that apology is not sufficient, then please explain to me the modern way of apologising...

Apart from that, what was wrong with my comments? To be considered tough was a compliment for all the warriors that I know...seems to me you want a servant to grovel and scrape, not just to work with. It was your actions that activated the Golems attack, and that is the most likely source of the statues activating. Do you think putting a Golem into combat mode is less likely to activate the statues than scratching the walls?

You talk of being reasonable, but I was acting to try to defend my friends in the best way I could. I would not last a single hit close to those golems, so I do appreciate the Ogres assistance. But I also do not want to be dead-weight in combat either, so I try to help the best way I can. Perhaps we can find a way for me to throw fireballs without hitting my friends...I would like to and I try to, but fate seems to have other ideas.
"

Gareth returns his stare with anger building at the attitude he is being treated with.

Re: The Black Tower
Haveron shakes his head at the defiance of the man.  He really didn't understand, and that was the problem all along.  "You hit him with a fireball.  That hurts.  Throwing out an offhand sorry doesn't cut it.  You have to make him understand you're sorry.  Saying the words are hollow if your reaction is 'what does he expect...?'.  You're right, you went through the motions.  And I'm telling you the ogre is still offended.  Does that mean anything to you?"
