    Yeah, my impression of Nox has always been: I had actually started our movement down the northern corridor, but since it was concurrent with a stated desire to also explore the eastern passage, I didn't go too much further with it. It sounds like we're all here with the trap just now,...

    I've no familiarity with phpBB admin; how does one use a separate instance as a backup, if one lacks admin rights to the original? Seems like there would be a lot of manual work to download & import, or double-post.

    That's a good way of looking at it, and not one I had considered before. Thanks for laying out your thoughts on this. Either before or after he explores the eastern passage (I'm a bit fuzzy on the order of operations here) Rogur will make a Thievery check to see if he can detect a triggering...

    My in-game post introduces Rogur's new feat, "Disciple of Shadow," which grants him Darkvision 2. It should make him a lot more useful on stealthy scouting, since he'll no longer have to carry a light. The relatively limited range makes it unlikely that he'll be able to give descriptions of large...

    Rogur scrambles down the rope and moves into the mouth of the eastern passageway, peering around as the others experiment with the oil. Noxias' spells make pools of oil gutter and flare, and shadows writhe on the wall. Rogur curses as he squints into the darkness, trying to keep watch. The contrast...

    "Just some sour wine that smells of your breath," Rogur calls back down. "But hang on a moment." He looks more carefully at the amphora in his hand and sees a small glyph. Tracing it with his finger, he furrows his brow in an effort to recall, then he has it. Back in Imareska, one of the importers...

    Against any sane person's better judgement, Rogur will draw his sword (because that'll definitely protect against acids, poisons, and magic potions) and open one of the jars. Do the jars have any identifying marks, or any characteristics that distinguish them from one another (my thought being...

    Hmm. Sour wine? Holy water? No way to tell without at least breaking the seal. Chewing his lip for a moment, Rogur shrugs, sets down one of the vessels, draws his sword--as a precaution against what, he couldn't say--and uses a free hand to worry free the brittle wax seal on one of the jars.

    If the party doesn't object, Rogur will use his grappling hook & rope to get up the other side and check out the less rubbly rubble. --T

    That would be Konstansz and Yrisz (assuming alphabetical order)? That seems reasonable to me. To clarify: Rogur probably wouldn't long-jump. With a running start, he'd only need to roll a 6 to clear the 10' wide chasm, but I'm more interested in having the party pause to explore, not having...

    Rogur will postpone the exploration of the southern corridor for now, but I did want to explore the other side of the crevice before diving into the chasm--there were at least a couple of unbroken crates that we could look at. I assume we're going to need an Athletics check to long-jump the chasm,...

    My post from yesterday got lost in the ether, apparently. My vote was to take both short rests in the corridor, then return to our plan for the bug room, but it sounds like we're losing support for that plan; at the very least, the party is divided, and I'd prefer to skip over a potentially...

    "There's some stairs up ahead on the right," Rogur says. He leans against the wall, eyes closed, and gives a lazy wave up the hall. "And some kind of a pit or chasm on the left. Might be a way forward either direction, but I didn't stay around long enough to tell for sure. Might be able to send...

    I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not, but I like the idea of trying to outstealth creatures that can see in the dark and walk through walls. :) --T

    "In a moment. Low maintenance is one thing, but pain-free is another. Yrisz, can you work some of that healing mojo over my way?" Rogur asks, wincing slightly and stowing his sword. He looks for remains of the wraith they "slew" to see if they can find anything useful.

    Yay, we rock! I'm assuming we're taking a short rest, and further assuming Yrisz can bust out with a couple of her special maximum Healing Words, I think Rogur will only need to spend 1 HS. Regarding L6: Yay! Unfortunately, Rogur didn't manage to fulfill his Training Quest while he was still...

    Busy weekend, I see! Thanks for taking care of Rogur's attack, Umiushi. Given his new position, I think I'll stay put and try for a higher-damage attack. If I happen to be the first one to hit #2 and regain hit points thanks to Yrisz' Astral Seal, well, that's a risk I'm willing to take. :) ...

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
