    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 will address these questions and experiments using inline blue text, not to be confused with Blue Truth. In some of the answers I have provided, I allowed for certain assumptions to be made. I want to clarify this further and say that, on the balance, I am not willing to make assumptions...

    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.

    This is the sixty-fourth main post for Worm Delve. Players' posts in either thread are due by 11 pm, Saturday, January 31st. The next main post will appear by 11 am, Monday, February 2nd. I'm also a bit fuzzy, but for the sake of consistency, I think we need to take the order of the map updates...

    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...

    I'll provide a mid-period update to deal with some questions and speculation: A floating disk can be treated as Cover if a character crawls under it, assuming the trap works the way your characters believe it does. I am currently only rolling Insight and Perception checks for player...

    My intention is to make the player characters more robust with respect to their attack and defense bonuses against equivalent-level opponents. This will free up character feats for their original purpose of allowing unique customizations. It should also allow the party to defeat enemies more...

    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...

    It's a good thing it's not a history check but a Prestidigitation cantrip. Basically, Rogur lowers an amphora marked oil down. Noxias removes the crumbling seal and immediately detects extremely rancid-smelling seed oil. Pouring a little bit on the ground and setting the amphora a good few feet...

    With about six hours to go in the players' posting period, I'd like to note that since Derim's objection to the eastern passage is very clear and specific, unless I get more information to the contrary, the party's going to start by going down the northern route. In case you're tempted to bring...

    Rogur has exhausted his knowledge but if any other character wants to have a go at identifying the second glyph, it can be done with a DC 15 History Check, or DC 10 for Yrisz. Also, I see Noxias is for and Derim is against entering the eastern passageway. Please settle on the rest of the...

    "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...

    The seal comes off and Rogur takes a sniff. The seal wasn't good enough, or the clay too porous. The vinegary tang of spoiled wine assails him, with decidedly unpleasant background scents of yeast and cooked cabbage.

    Rogur will need to bring a sample down or Noxias will have to climb up to offer any arcane insights. Meanwhile, Rogur makes a History Check and rolls 11 modified to 14. Knowledge Check (History DC 15 normally, DC 10 due to Rogur's background as an Imareskan merchant ship's officer) Just before...

    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.

    Assuming Yrisz hasn't entered the narrow parts of the northern or eastern passages yet, you cannot see any dead ends in either direction as far as her illumination has reached. It will take one person about an hour to convert one square of difficult terrain into clear terrain in the eastern...

    As the rest of you look around in the crevice, Rogur sets up his own grapple and rope on the north face, ascends to the other side of the room, and pokes about in the debris. It doesn't look like anything he finds was disturbed in many years, since whenever it was that they were dashed to pieces...

    In order to examine the contents of the undisturbed amphorae, Rogur will have to at least break their seals.

    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...
