    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...

    Since you didn't specify that we needed to roll initiative, I'm going to assume Rogur was able to fling the beetle away from him in surprise and attempt to examine it and stomp it at the same time. Please roll the appropriate knowledge checks to identify it. Also, although we've never explicitly...

    "Oi!" Rogur yelps, more in surprise than pain, although it was no love bite. He shudders with revulsion and flings the thing off of him. It lands on its back and immediately rights itself. The wound on his hand isn't deep, for which he is grateful, but it is characterized by a familiar numbness and...

    I'm currently scheduled to run one of my regular games on Sunday, December 14th. I'm not interested in running two games back-to-back, but I will consult with the gaming group at our session this coming Sunday to see if they would be interested in having me run a pick-up game on December 13th,...

    So, back into marching order and on across the bridge then. Rogur will return the everburning torch to Yrisz, and proceed with his sword out, one hand free.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Umiushi, the way I'm reading this, we're not doing a traditional 4e skill challenge, but rather a "best roll", with each player having the option to make one or both rolls for Insight and Dungeoneering. If that's accurate, then there's really no downside to everybody making both rolls as...

    Interesting interpretation; I had assumed this was a warping of space, not a mental effect. I'll be keen to see how the experiment plays out.

    Turning away from the mist, he marches up to Derim and hands him the rope end. "Well, it was worth a shot," he grins widely. "That's how it always worked in stories. Anyway, who's got the next bright idea?"

    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. ...

    Rogur will walk backwards, with one end of the rope tied to his waist. He'll borrow the everburning torch from Yrisz and hold his sword in his free hand. As he proceeds backwards, he'll call out once every square with his progress. If the sound doesn't carry properly, the party should pull him back...

    "You magical types just love your little puzzles, don't you?" Rogur all but sneers as the party emerges from the fog. He considers for a moment, then takes one end of the rope and cinches it to his waist. Regaining his sword, he takes the torch from Yrisz with a wink. He looks up at Derim. "Give me...
