Re: (OOC) Welcome to the Game Chat Area 1
 Heh, I said that it looks like the lizardfolk did something. As in he went into the sewer muck, and a moment later things started to happen. It doesn't mean that he did it, it's just a coincidence of timing.

 Also:

Viv:
When it finishes emptying, there's a 30' pit with a pillar of trash-covered slimey stuff in the middle. Said pillar is about 30' tall.


 So... there's a 30' sloping pit with slimy, oozy, bone-crusty sides in front of us. The pillar in it is 30' high?

 Like:

 I have no idea what you're saying 'no' to.

Re: (OOC) Welcome to the Game Chat Area 1
Its straight down on both sides. It doesn't go 'up to the pillar' and there is no pillar.

It slopes down to the ground on all sides like a funnel.

Also its covered in muck, bones and debree with the odd bones in the center.

The lizardfolk was standing there before it went down. So if you want to believe he did something, alright.

Your right about Vermina and Viv. Your above the area and looking down. Everyone else is in the sewers. There was no 'pillar'.

The figure is where the 'r' is.

Hope its understood?

Re: (OOC) Welcome to the Game Chat Area 1
 Not until I went back and found this:

Gamemaster:
The platform suddenly starts to move down into the muck and the muck begins to pour out through a now open small area at the bottom of the platform.



              Figure
Us                            __
  \                        /
  \           V           /

      \                 /More
  Ooze \       *       / Ooze
   ---------------------------


 I swear, I never have this much trouble parsing descriptions, but somehow the ones here always leave me scratching my head. Okay! Is anything stopping the sewer water from pouring out of the passage we were in, or is there a small waterfall now draining past us?

 That's only important 'cause there's folks still standing in it who might be being washed away. ^_^

After a few moments, the lizardfolk moves back to the others, Viv and Vermina standing on the small platform. The platform stops at the bottom about 30' below. It slopes down to it on all sides. Its covered in bones, muckk and debree with the odd skeleton sitting next to the center.


Also the figure is on the bottom not floating. There is no water. There isn't enough force to push people into the 'pit'.

Its aggrivating as I tried to put in everything but sometimes things are left out. My apologies.

 Nah, you're just running into the same problem a lot of DMs here do: You already know what's happening, so you fill in the blanks yourself. We'll work it out in due course. ^_^

 The key thing though, is that from what you just said the whole sewer just drained past us, right? But it did so slowly enough that it's not knocked anyone off their feet?

I didn't state the whole sewer sucked up. Just that one room :)

 Which is what baffled me in the first place!

 What, if anything is stopping the sewer from pouring into the pit, or is it pouring (and then draining away) but not fast enough to sweep anyone in?

Re: (OOC) Welcome to the Game Chat Area 1
The area suddenly was being empty out into a small area in the center of the room. I put it in the IC area. Its not a huge wave with everyone getting sucked into it. Like a bathroom drain. The group only has like maybe a foot or more to the ground. If it was strong enough to knock the group down, I would have stated it :)

Re: (OOC) Welcome to the Game Chat Area 1

 So the sewer is draining into the pit, it's just doing so really slowly because it's sluggish and only a foot deep? There's a fetid, sludgy waterfall going on, but the pace is slow and nothing to worry about, because it's draining as fast as it pours in...

 Okies!

Re: (OOC) Welcome to the Game Chat Area 1
The room was full of water.

Then the water was sucked down in that room.

Now its just a mucky covered skeleton ooze pit. There is litte mucky water in that one area.

The rest of the sewer still has about a foot or two water. It was not sucked down.

Just like I stated before: Bathroom Drain.

In reply to Gamemaster (msg # 152):

 So what's stopping the sewer from draining into the pit?

 I wouldn't keep asking, but when I propose what I think is happening (it is, but it's sluggish so wherever the sewer is getting water from in the first place is keeping up with the slow rate of drainage) you miss the question.

 Although I don't suppose it's that important, if nothing's changing in the rest of the sewer.

Bottom of the pit. Its got a small grate.

Gamemaster:
The platform suddenly starts to move down into the muck and the muck begins to pour out through a now open small area at the bottom in the center of the pit. After a few moments, the lizardfolk moves back to the others, Viv and Vermina standing on the small platform along the walls. The area stops at the bottom about 30' below. It slopes down to it on all sides. Its covered in bones, muckk and debree with the odd skeleton sitting next to the center.

Post has been updated.

Annie

Its grated and its about 2'x2'. So the kobold might be able to get in. But the lizardfolk? Nope.

Re: (OOC) Welcome to the Game Chat Area 1
In reply to Gamemaster (msg # 155):

 So... nothing at all. As a result, there's a sluggish waterfall coming 30' down the side of the pit next to us, and that drains through the grate, but the pace of flow is sufficiently slow that the sewer is draining but in no danger of being drained and the bottom of the pit stays mostly clear because the liquid's draining out faster than it comes down.

 That's kind of what I was picturing but for some reason I wasn't communicating it clearly enough to get a yes or no.

There is nothing coming down towards you. It was in a pit and got drained to the bottom. So not really sure where this coming down next to you came from. It was in the pit in front of you and got sucked down to the grate. Nothing is coming at you or towards you. Its a pit, your at level with it. Nothing coming down the walls. Everyone is on the outside of it or above it. No one in the sewer is effected.

Like a bathroom drain. There is no sluggish waterfall coming down 30' above or to the side of the group.

Also there are bones, debrees, ect so anyone can go down and get back up easily. 30' at a angle to the grate.

Example:
VV = Odd Skeleton

B = Bones/Debree

SW = Sewer Wall

SS = Sewer Entrance where the group is located

GG = Grate

-- = Outer wall

SS------------SW
SWB----------BSW
SWBB--------BBSW
SWBBB------BBBSW
SWBBBB-VV-BBBBSW
SWBBBBBGGBBBBBSW

Re: (OOC) Welcome to the Game Chat Area 1
Basically. Drazzat dove in, bones weren't all around and were spread out. Now without water, they are more sunk down, got more debrees show, ect. Some areas its more steep, other areas its more even on the way down. May at times fall through. But essentually, the group can get down there easily enough if they want.

Now Drazzat got down through the bones/debress, saw the body on the grate and then it stood up.

So getting down there you'd be at half-speed. Drazzat would be at 20'. Most would be at 10-15 on a move action. You can charge down but may slip or fall.

I'll run Karrak as a NPC. Hopefully Deimos will return.

 I didn't want to post before it was time, but I also didn't want to miss the moment. Looks like it was time for actions anyway, so no worries.
