    At only 8 HP down, Rogur won't spend any Healing Surges. Having heard no votes from Cutopia & Ithelryn so far, and only one strongly-felt proposal for a third, I mean eighth, let's just call it "last", question, I'm inclined to go ahead and ask about the Mimic's hibernation period. Zus, can...

    "Well, you're quite a chatterbox after you've eaten, areahhh...I would say," Rogur stammers over the end of his sentence before he accidentally turns it into a question. He turns back to the group. "One more to go." He looks around expectantly, "For me, I'm quite happy with what I've heard....

    Rogur sheathes his sword and walks over to confer hastily with the group. After a few moments of hushed discussion and some animated arm waving, he turns back to the mimic. In his head, he hears echoes of stories where unwise adventurers ask poorly-phrased wishes of powerful beings, which leads...

    Hi Zus, Thanks for your explanations. I think I understand all of them, although I don't agree with them. And Rogur isn't going to throw a fit if we decide to bring it along; as I said, party cohesion is the most important thing to me, so Rogur will always follow along with the group consensus,...

    If we use my earlier post as a template, then the your vote for the three questions would be something like: * What is the quickest route to the greatest treasure in this place? * What hazards are you aware of along that route? * Do you know of any secret or hidden areas in this place? I...

    If it's any consolation, I also thought of the Elcor from the Mass Effect series. I've provided my votes for the interesting questions, but I don't feel too strongly about them. If the other players have other thoughts, I'm happy enough to go along with them, with one exception: I'd prefer not...

    At the risk of making an (something the wordfilter would not approve) out of you and me, if we assume we're dealing with an Object Mimic, that's a medium-sized creature. In 4e, the "Medium" size ranges from dwarf (low-end average height of 4'3") to goliath (high-end average height of 7'8"). That's...

    Leave it to Umiushi to give a monster straight from the D&D Trope File a voice and personality like an automaton from a sci-fi movie. Bravo! I know some of us are low on rations, but I'm inclined to feed the thing some meat and hear it out. (Easy for me to say, since I am one of the ones low on...

    Fastest surrender ever! Umiushi, thanks for the opportunity to move. Rogur will shift 1 NW as his Round 1 move action. Rogur, Round 2: Free: Ask mimic to clarify "compensation". Treasure is good. Tasty brains is right out. Move: Shift 1W: Rogur is now flanking with Derim Standard: Ready an...

    Palpatim replied to a thread Worm Delve in The Unquiet Lands
    Rogur pauses, his sword poised for another blow. This is definitely not the usual order of events, which tends to be more on the "attack, dodge, get hurt, repeat" variety, until one side or the other falls in a bloody heap. He looks around, puzzled, and says, "What sort of 'compensation' are we...

    Rogur will keep his attack and therefore his crit, but since he's been grabbed and (I now know) Derim is going to do a ranged rather than a melee attack, he'll forego sneak attack damage in favor of a no-combat-advantage attack. Prediction for round 2 is the same as for round 1: attempt to gain...

    First of all: Mimic! Apart from gelatinous cubes and beholders, does it get any D&D-ier? (Hint: "no.") Second of all: Umiushi's post above is one of the main reasons I continue to enjoy this game several years on. A question that could be dismissed, answered tersely, or answered briefly is...

    Rogur is not jumping over the trapped squares--he's already walked through them with no response from the trap. Gotta love auto-correct. :) --T

    Thanks for clarifying the pool's layout, Umiushi. Sometimes I don't English very well, it seems--you very clearly said the pool was a basin with a fountain rising out of it, not a pool with a basin rising out of it. Rogur's investigations will be largely unchanged, with the obvious exception...

    Well, fiddlesticks. The sense of impending doom here is palpable. :) Since we can't seem to figure out the trap (that makes us 1 for 3 in figuring out the riddles of this place, being extremely charitable regarding the bridge), I'd vote for exploring the western chamber and pool room. If that's...

Chant - Four years later

by Palpatim on 08-08-2011 at 12:39 AM
"One of the first lessons any student of the Art must learn is how to separate illusion from reality," Chant said, as he stood at the center of a semi-circle of twenty students, mostly prospective initiates of the Corona Cor Igne, and therefore Tiefling, but with a few beings of other races. The Bright Kingdom maintained several Arcanae, but several wizards piled their trade as independent agents. and the Flamehearts had the benefit of notoriety, not to mention exclusivity. Tieflings were

Chant confronts Sir Listeneise

by Palpatim on 08-07-2011 at 05:55 PM
"The singing has stopped."

Chant looked up from his search, his breath fogging the chill air in front of him. The icy walls surrounding the party glowed faintly with light streaming through them from outside. Corw'achs looked over at Chant, concern showing plainly on his face, then returned his attention to the western passage, where shapes stirred at the far end, sending sounds of movement toward them. Fear gripped Chant's stomach suddenly, and his tail twitched anxiously.

Introducing Chant

by Palpatim on 11-10-2010 at 12:35 PM
"Chant."

His eyes closed, awareness unfocused, the word fell across his ears without leaving an impression. Breathe.

"Chant."

The word's repetition caused certain of his mental processes to stir, and he felt the tendrils of the world insinuate themselves back into his consciousness, pulling him against his will into the here and now.

"Chant!"

The tiefling's eyes opened, red-gold orbs flecked with obsidian

Introducing "Saucy" Rogur Kalor, ladies' man

by Palpatim on 07-21-2009 at 05:45 AM
Self-assured to the point of arrogance, Rogur earns his nickname from his wandering eye and unquenchable thirst. Apprenticed at 7 years old to a merchant captain in the port city of Imareska, he's been on the sea for so long he can't remember any other life. Rising to first mate of the sloop Jewel of Imareska, he seemed destined to take over as captain until the ship was sunk during an attack just as they left port. Swimming back to shore, Rogur fled and begun trying to rebuild his life. He is his
