Re: Out Of Context
Before we let the time skip go completely unnoticed, did anyone take an actual wound from the swarms, something more lasting than the shaken condition that will fade on its own?

Re: Out Of Context
Iíll need to double check, but I believe because of the armor bonus no one was actually wounded, only shaken. And shaken status wonít matter for the next part so Iím effectively saying if you were shaken youíre good now.

You guys actually slaughtered those swarms a lot faster than I anticipated! In the adventure pamphlet I was only supposed to introduce one swarm at a time, but threw both at you guys to try and make it a harder challenge.. but to no avail :D

Re: Out Of Context
We did collectively dump a lot of power points onto that encounter.

Re: Out Of Context
Wait a sec- was there any clue from checking the body?  I'm trying to figure out if this is new or if this has been down here for donkey's years

Re: Out Of Context
My apologies for not responding to that, the body is very decayed and has no clear markings or jewelry or anything, literally just Humanoid bones, as for age itís the same as the tunnel/hall, definitely several hundred years old at the least.

Re: Out Of Context
Donít forget you guys have 3 bennies! You can use them to reroll (but not reroll the wild die).

Why not reroll the wild die?

quote:
REROLL A TRAIT: Bennies grant a hero a reroll on any Trait, and best of all, you get to keep the best total from all your rolls. The only exception is a Critical Failure, which ends the attempt and must be accepted.
Such is the price of tempting fate!


As we're wild cards, all our rolls include the wild die, so we reroll all the dice, not just the trait die. Otherwise it would state reroll trait die, not trait roll.

Re: Out Of Context
Yeah if no one else is going to try checking it, you might as well decide who's going to force it (if it needs to be forced).

Re: Out Of Context
The door is not locked, and I can go ahead and update I was just waiting for others post. Iím assuming everyone wants to open the door and continue on then?

We are getting close to the conclusion of this opening act

Re: Out Of Context
From me it's a case of, did we all make it across?

And if so, is it another repeat of checking the door is safe to open, and then open it?

Right now we're following a linear path until something happens to interrupt us.

Well, Iím waiting for the others to either make a strength check or to find another way across, in order to continue into the next room

Re: Out Of Context
SO nobody had any rope at all? That is going to get fun.  I figured I would go last just in case someone needed a nudge over the edge, but if everyone has gone already we can just move on.

Re: Out Of Context
Well I think I can solve the problem, but in a way that's going to cost us a lot of power points I wanted to save for what's behind the door (I also would have preferred to do it before Maya jumped buuut I was overwhelmed for a few days there so that's my bad I apologize).  How many people besides me are still on the wrong side?  Me, Heia, technically Velvet and Alexis but they seem to have dropped off?  I ask because if they've vanished into the aether I'd prefer to save the power points.

Re: Out Of Context
For the sake of moving forward, Iím going to say there is some random rope on the other side of the chasm, and anyone who wishes to cross over can now do so safely. If you guys want to open the door let me know and Iíll post whatís on the other side

Re: Out Of Context
Unless someone else volunteers or wants to cast more spells, Seraphina's plan was to burst in and start... something.  Fighting probably.

I'm a little low on PP so I'll be reserving for blasting and healing.

Re: Out Of Context
I think fighting is probably the next step, after that we may want to consider taking a breather to recover a bit.
