    Allabar, or some aspect of it, orbits broken and defeated within the nameless vortex between planes of existence. Miraculously, the six legendary heroes of their era who confronted it survived with their bodies and minds intact for the most part. Allabar was not just a threat to the city-state of...

    The snow started falling at sunset on the longest night of the year. By half-past four, the sky was pitch-dark and traffic out of Morioka was already a mess even though nothing was sticking yet. The trains were still in service, but there's no rail station north of Lake Ogawara these days. ...

    Arcana Check DC 27 - Zone Identification (How are the bugs all alive down there?) There is a permanent zone that continuously conjures and sustains vermin in the lower level of the room. The bugs present survive by feeding on each other, and more bugs continuously appear to replace those...

    Scorching Burst might eventually cause a cave-in but who knows how long that will take? It may be hours or days. As an area of effect spell, though, it will be much handier at clearing out the massed bugs than Eldritch Blast. Also, now that we've started the player posting period, I'm hoping...

    There might be some suitable boulders of that type down where the kanks are. A one foot diameter roughly spherical limestone boulder weighs about ninety pounds, so it's not getting tossed too far, but it could get dropped into the depths of the room. That will necessitate entering the room. ...

    For the initial tests, the ones whose results are described in the narrative thread, I don't think a floating disk is necessary. Let's hold off on that for a bit longer, until something more extreme is done with more of the meat. As far as picking off the bugs piecemeal goes, if the swarm...

    Speaking for Konstansz on the earlier question of area-of-effect attacks, warlocks tend towards spells that only have single targets. She has used one close range area-of-effect spell in the past: Music of the Spheres, which is a straightforward encounter-frequency spell that causes thunder-based...

    So far, so good. Cutting off a small piece will take negligible time. The only questions for this stage are who tosses the chunk, where do they toss it, and if they have to enter the room to do it, where's everyone else?

    There is a stickied and locked post in the Off Topic forum today prohibiting the use of foul language on the forums and in chat. Personally, I find this statement overly broad and vague, and an unwelcome change from the earlier "PG-13" standard that was in place when I first joined this site, but...

    That is correct. They are not undead and cannot be turned. In any case, I don't believe anyone in the party can turn undead. I know specifically that Yrisz lacks such a capability.

    They are black beetles of some sort. They are not kanks, and hold very little resemblance to kanks beyond also being beetles. Further specific knowledge will require Religion Checks.

    Unfortunately, I learned today that I have another commitment on December 13th, so I won't be available to run a game on that date. However, I will still make an announcement about it to my players on Sunday, and maybe some of them will join Seadogstyle in attending the event.

    Yes, Rogur can deal with the beetle outside of combat. The knowledge check to identify these beasts is Religion. Rogur rolls 6 modified to 8. It's some kind of nasty bug. Characters can almost always identify typed damage correctly. Psychic damage from illusionary attacks would be the...

    Rogur easily disposes of the insect. It leaves a putrid-smelling black stain on the floor and on the sole of his boot. There are a few others flying around aimlessly. None of them have shown any inclination to land on anyone, yet. A couple fly in and out of the side passage, which is ten feet...
