    Thank you for the clarifications, particularly for setting me at ease concerning the issue of splitting up the party. I'm a little unclear where the bugbears come from, still. As for stealth encounters, I'll be reviewing what house rules might be added starting with the May sessions. While...

    DiscipleofYawgmoth has an excellent point about the difference between characters and players, and I want to make sure everyone knows how I plan to adjudicate it. 1. Players should be able to play their characters in the way they wish, subject to various contracts they've made with me, such...

    Here is my reply to Seadogstyle's game-related issues. Phantom Steeds Each casting summons eight steeds, and there is no limit to the total number that can be summoned at any given time. They can only be ridden by those whom the caster designates, however. This means if you rescue someone and...

    Good job here, Zus. I don't like to participate in discussions between players, especially when they look like they're going to be fruitful. Since Zus is new to the resources and constraints of the party and the situation, and planning is something that I strongly suggested recently, I feel I...

    As a point of concern, I don't see how Scorching Burst can be cast after you move without catching either you or Rogur in the area of effect. Where is its target origin square going to be, and are you casting it before or after you move?

    Yes, Fire Shroud was canceled. I originally put "surprise round" in quotes because there wasn't an actual surprise round. It's just that resolution of Fire Shroud, if you had chosen to cast it, would have occurred in a surprise round-like time period. Everything is proceeding as shown in the...

    I assume Rogur used his Thievery on the identified trap. The result is the same: it's neither activated nor disarmed. As for opening the door, I'll deal with what happens in the next DM post.

    Yes, the double doors weren't there before. Noxias was unable to counter the spell but didn't set off the trap, either. If someone's disarm attempt sets off the trap, I'll assume the party fled the area before it fully took effect.

    They look closed because it's easier for me to draw them that way. Any door that the party has passed through was left open. It may have naturally swung shut due to uneven ground, but at least won't be stuck shut unless there's some other agency interfering.

    Nothing in particular, no. The two passages are different, of course, as one would expect. There is nothing notable about how they are different.

    To frame your response in the context of my question and also to clarify my intent, by "originally," I assume you mean "after Rogur lowered the amphorae down into the chasm and each one was opened and identified," in which case the only available amphora of oil was the one that got opened. If...

    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.
