Re: OOC
Dweeble doesn't seem immoral to me!  Super greedy and quite befuddled about any social norm one might care to name, but I can't recall seeing any malice in her... yet :)

By the way, I don't think I welcomed you back yet, Dweeble, so welcome!  I've been distracted from RPOL for a bit myself, but I'm trying to be around more.

Also, I just edited my post to mark the specific square Bram left the driftglobe floating, in case that comes into play.

Re: OOC
Super greedy and socially awkward are definitely both very accurate descriptors for her, you're not wrong!  As for the morals, or lack thereof, I suppose she really isn't showing that off but I also don't see a reason why she would.  She's fine following the lead of a group that has so far made her some coin and kept her safe.  If that changes, she might start being a bit more carefree about what she's doing.  So just don't let her get stabbed or steal her shinies and you'll never have to see that!  But yeah, even she has a code she lives by.  It's just one that is more so about her not being hurt or stolen from than actually worrying much about others.  Then again, she isn't the type to go stab a commoner cause he looked at her funny.  She's been locked up plenty, she doesn't need that back in her life.

And thank you, Bram.  I can understand the issues with balance between RPoL and real life but I'm glad you're still around.

Also that damn orb is awful shiny...

Re: OOC
Just realized I missed commenting on Bram's ability checks - I edited my prior post but here's the update:

The boy wasn't seriously hurt, but he appreciates the attempt at some healing.

Braelen seems sincere in what he says and how he's acting.

Nothing about the Delvers or Believers rings any bells.

Bram gives Braelen 2gp.

Re: OOC
Dweeble:
Hey DM, besides the big stone block in the middle of the room, is there anywhere else to hide?  Patches of shadow, small outcroppings, or anything else along those lines?  Also, how big around is the stone in the center of the room?  If Dweeble was standing in a crouched demeanor, would she still be able to be seen from the doorway at that angle?


There's nothing else of note in the room, other than the two doors and the stone block. The stone is 8 feet tall and a little irregular, but 5 feet wide at its widest part.

Re: OOC
Hey Morg, I've been meaning to ask you something.  I noticed back in the OOC you mentioned taking a maneuver for Dweeble to take advantage of.  Which one from Battlemaster were you planning?

"[Comrade] strike: on an attack action on your turn, forgo 1 of your attacks and use a bonus action to direct one of your companions (a friendly creature who can see or hear you) to strike, expending one superiority die. That creature can immediately use its reaction to make one weapon attack, adding 1d8 to the attack's damage roll."

Anytime Dwee's in position for a sneak attack and hasn't used her reaction; she get's another attack with this, +another sneak attack (because this happens during Morg's turn), +1d8 damage. At higher levels it could mean multiple avalanches of d6s from 2 sneak attacks per turn.

When Bram's smiting starts getting medieval, it's gonna be a difficult choice on who Morg gives the reaction attack to.

Re: OOC
That's the one I was hoping for!  I figured it was either that or Distracting Strike so I thought I'd ask.  Definitely gives plenty of dice for damage that way, that's for sure!

It's probably going to be best to use that with Dweeble until we get to what we think is the end fights of an arc or some such.  Don't want to blow all of Bram's spell slots on smites on the little guys after all!

Re: OOC
Asano, what point did you choose for the sleep spell? I don't really understand 'bottom vertex of BV/BW'. If you choose BV 41, for instance, the spell would affect nobody.

Never mind, I assume you chose BW38. In future please pick an actual map coordinate to make this easier tho =)

Re: OOC
Is deadly force quite called for here? We're entering their place uninvited, and we disagree with their parenting methods, but are we sure yet that they deserve death for that, and for creeping out the quarry workers?

Morg smash anyway tho.

Re: OOC
They dropped cages on us, threatened us and are now attacking with deadly force, so I think this counts as self-defense!  Bram will want to talk to one of them to find out more about what's going on here, though.  If they all die first then them's the breaks :P

Re: OOC
Wait, there's something besides lethal force?  Why didn't anyone ever tell poor Dweeble!?

But honestly she's pretty weary about people flashing weapons at her, or Morg in this case.  Her first reaction was to kill that person.  Toss her a line about not wanting to kill them and she'd listen...  Probably.

Dweeble is most likely going to be chasing down the half-orc next round actually.  Y'know, for reasons yet spoken of.

Re: OOC
Vicious Mockery really is great. In a recent high level one shot I randomly rolled a halfling bard whose main strategy dealimg with insane cultists was to call them rude and mock their mothers.

One of them died TWICE from it.

Re: OOC
So, on a completely new topic, anyone a fan of musicals?

I went and saw the Book of Mormon last night and it was probably the hardest I've ever laughed at a play, movie, musical, whatever in my life.  If you ever get the chance to see it, I highly recommend it.

Re: OOC
There's no singing, but Wikipedia says the percussion group Stomp's film Stomp out loud https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stomp_Out_Loud is a musical. After seeing the film, I saw them in a live show a few years ago, and really enjoyed that also.

Re: OOC
Haven't gotten to see TOO many, unfortunately, but I can definitely say that Into The Woods is a favorite performance of mine. I got to see it as a play during junior high, and was the only one of my friends to enjoy the movie because of that.

Of course, given that I also like Sweeney Todd, I might just like Stephen Sondheim works in general...

There's truly nothing quite like wild magic. It's either amazingly useful, detrimental, or just plain silly.

Re: OOC
I'm planning to put a full-on Wild Magic Zone into my home game at some point in the future. One player knows about it due to backstory, but the others...it'll be a fun surprise, especially since our sorcerer went dragon origin specifically to AVOID the more unpleasant surges.

Re: OOC
Wild Magic, always a delight!  Especially so when a fireball blows up in the middle of the party :)

To put a finer point on Bram's IC question: how is everybody doing for HP?  I have healing available, but if several of us are wounded it would probably be worth trying for a short rest rather than using up a lot of it right away.

Re: OOC
Well, physically Dweeble is still untouched.  Mentally, her HP has plummeted rather harshly!  =3

I think Mayon needs a bit of a boost, though.  As does Morgy.

Re: OOC
Yeah, Mayon's pretty poor. Below 50% in fact, but I'd rather just take a short rest and save the healing for emergencies. Such as if that roll hadn't been retconned earlier, whew!
