Acqua Alta Finale Discussion
OOC Post #1 for Acqua Alta Finale
This post complements the first main post in the Acqua Alta Finale thread. Players' posts in open threads are due by 11 pm, Tuesday, March 6th. The next OOC main post will appear by 11 pm, Friday, March 9th.
Remember to read both these first posts in the new threads and the final posts in the original Acqua Alta threads.
This week will probably be the busiest week I have until summer. Therefore, my next post may be as late as one day, as reflected in the due dates given above. I have kept the players' due dates the same, but in practice this means that you have quite a few days of leeway, this week.
As before, traveling across the portals would restore all of your healing surges and daily powers, should you have spent any.
However, the minor magical items of the Feywild may be disenchanted by the transition back to Aucothia. Stronger magical items, such as the Acrobat Boots, are not at risk. Items that have long been in the possession of a Feywild inhabitant, such as Noxias, are also not affected.
The two Gray Rain Cloaks, the Wine Raisin, and the Everburning Torch may lose their magic. To offset this, the characters who carry those items may spend one healing surge, each, while in the Amber Room. A single healing surge will be sufficient bind all items carried by that character closely enough to them that they will retain their powers. If the character elects not to spend a healing surge, each of the above items must make a saving throw or its enchantment will be lost.
OOC Post #2 for Acqua Alta Finale
This post complements the second Acqua Alta Finale main post. Players' posts in either thread are due by 11 pm, Saturday, March 10th. The next OOC main post will appear by 11 am, Monday, March 12th.
I'm quite aware that I'm jumping the gun here. Here are the posts that I pretty much explicitly said would come out this Friday.
I'm approaching a perfect storm of offline commitments just as the online situation is picking up. Therefore, I'm going to have to dump a fair amount into the players' hands for the next several days.
The absolute worst case scenario is that I won't be able to post again for eleven or twelve days. That means two canceled posting periods. However, I think it is more likely that I will be able to make those due dates, but possibly with abbreviated posts.
At this point, you are joined by the two new PCs, played by Cutopia and Isrealjacob. They come rushing out of the corridor into the room, armed and ready for a fight. However, it does not look like the fight they are ready for is with any of you. Please roll initiative.
Normally I'd describe them in more detail, but this time I'd prefer to leave that to the players in question. However, this post has probably caught them quite unprepared. Therefore, please be patient for the rest of the week.
