    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...

    I'm currently scheduled to run one of my regular games on Sunday, December 14th.

    Of course, there is always the list of "cursed" items which grant large bonuses that reverse upon the performance of a particular action, which certain clever players go to great lengths to avoid said actions, leading to certain hillarious sequences in game.

    Nice different approach there. It will be up to Derim to use up the stone, spend an action point, or give it to someone who will.

    Indeed! I remember racing into battle with "cursed" versions of my character's main weapon in hand - to "trip" and drop it accidentally as I was almost engaging the enemy. Invariably, one of the folks in the enemy party would pick it up and attempt to use it against us. (insert insane giggling...

    I'm fairly sure the party doesn't have any equipment like the pipe described. At this point, only Noxias can detect the magic's direction changing, but if he and anyone he's with turn back when he feels it occur, the result is the same as walking straight forward: they come out of the mist where...

    Some "cursed" items I see as misused. The necklace of strangulation for example. It's an assassination tool, not a cursed item. It does exactly what it is meant to do.

    Yes, this is just a best-of test. Concerning Noxias's rolls, I'm using the Dungeoneering because it was tagged as such. The others were also specified, so they go to their various categories whether those are used or not. I have already taken the Arcana Check into consideration, since it's not...

    I'm not sure which of the two pieces of rope Rogur grabs, or whether he chooses a new 50' length of rope. However, I'll assume the rope he goes with is long enough for the stated effect in the narrative thread.

    There is a point, deep in the mists, where Rogur finds himself walking next to a rope lying on the ground. The rope, and the ground, seems to move closer to him or further away from the side depending upon whether he walks forward or backward, behaving like some reflection in an angled mirror. ...

    I'd like to join the Adventure Writer's Guild. I may be an inexperienced DM, but I've got enthusiasm and a fertile imagination. I'd like to learn how to better harness those traits to benefit everyone.
  2. Sure....let me come up with a better idea than the one I put up, then.

    Hey Ben... I've been thinking about the adventure writers guild and while i see it as a cool opportunity, there's really only a few motivated people up there. I want to keep pushing to see if we can collaborate as a group, but i would like to put forward may a little side effort between just you and I. Basically same thing, we'll both come up with an side trek idea and then we do your first, and collaborate to finish mine after that. I've never worked collaboratively before and i don't want my first experience, which seems like its gonna be a lot of drawn out online exchanges, to sour me to it. You really got this group started, and you seem really motivated in the adventure writing area... sooooo.... interested in collaborating just between you and I? I understand if not... it means yet another thing to put effort into and family always take priority... but let me know if it may be something you want to do.

Entering Elder Daven

by DM_Running_Farland_3.5 on 04-26-2009 at 12:37 PM
After leaving the sheriff behind in the custody of the village priest, the Ely, Rana and company continued on to Elder Daven.

They nearly fell victim to a strangely clean ogre that was plying the "trade" on the road to Elder Daven.

Heinrich managed to sneak up behind him and attempted to hamstring him but failed. When the ogre finally got the chance to go on the offensive, Heinrich found himself with a 50-pound great axe lodged in his left shoulder.
