    BTW Lycan -- this is not a big deal, but in the present campaign setting, Orcus neither is nor was a god (though it is his ambition to become one). Currently his status is demon prince, not even demon lord. His title has never included "death", but only "undeath". i.e. "Orcus, Demon Prince of Undeath".

    The present god of death in the setting is the Raven Queen. She has most influence over the Shadowfell. She's neutrally aligned and her primary concern is maintaining the balance and order. Undead are anathema to her since they pervert the natural order. As such, Orcus is her deadly enemy; he's always trying to seize control of the Shadowfell, and of death as a whole, so as to cause all those who die to become undead under his sway.

    Zimelda should know this; it shouldn't be necessary for Alessa to correct her.

    *THERE IS A NEW POST IN THE IC THREAD WITH VALTHRUN'S REPLY TO THE REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ABOUT THE KEEP*

    I did see that Arjhan and Mertes had greeted Valthrun on their way in -- he missed it because he was so annoyed.

    Yes, you guys have finally discovered the eponymous Keep. I had to chuckle at your eagerness, you pounced like starving dogs on raw meat. I won't chide you for metagaming, because in the module as written, there is absolutely no way for the PCs to find out that a keep even exists unless they either know about it in advance, or the players metagame using the title of the module! (No clues to the existence or location of the Keep are in any of the encounters, and none of the NPCs will volunteer information on it no matter how high a Streetwise or Diplomacy check.)

    I couldn't figure out a reasonable way for the party to discover it, much less give three clues, so I decided to just tell you about it, like http://adventurers.keenspot.com/d/0004.html
    (the webcomic "Adventurers!" is a parody of old console role-playing games like Final Fantasy).
    hopefully my storytelling ability is a little better than that.

    Zimelda's passive insight is 19, so she knows what's in the first spoiler, but doesn't know what's in the DC 20 spoiler.

    We're going to need a new IC thread to go with the new OOC thread pretty soon, Snowbody. We've nearly reached the 50 page limit.

    So, are the other PCs staying to chat with Valthrun (and Jarvis), or leaving?

    ALSO:

    Given the increasing instability of the forums, I'm considering moving the game. In the event the forums become unusable, I'll definitely move. I've heard good things about Mythweavers' play-by-post forums -- I think that's where everyone has their character sheets. Anyway, I'm also Snowbody on Mythweavers. Could you post here or PM me here or on Mythweavers so I can contact you if need be.

    (BTW Lycan -- you still have to update Zimelda's sheet to put in the real feat instead of Skill Training Intimidate)

    I am not saying you should not move there, but be aware that I probably cant access that forum on the time I regulary post (can you link it to me) since I can access myth-weaver fromt hose place usually.

    It's the same site as the character sheets, so you wouldn't be able to access it.

    http://www.myth-weavers.com/game.php?&g=12358

    How about www.roleplaymarket.com ? Even worse than giantitp.

    Hey gang, I just wanted to give a notice to everyone. I am leaving for vacation this coming Saturday. I'll be gone for 5-6 days and my ability to connect to the internet while I'm away will be dubious at best. I'll defer to whatever you decide is most convenient, but I'm happy to let any one of you take control of Arjhan for the week, or just have him stay in town while I'm gone. Whatever works best for everyone. Thanks
    Crit rules run RAW in my games, now and forever, Amen.

    Dankeschön, domo arigatou, merci beaucoup, and infinite thanks to Ceika for the superb Galadriel avatar.

    I posted, but the forum didn't update it. Should still be visible, though.


    Honestly, despite its issues, I'd rather stick with GitP. I do all my games here, and bouncing around between forums would probably be just as much hassle. I've never been much of a fan of Myth-Weavers either, honestly. Their layout kinda bugs me.

    Saw it after I posted, hence my double post.

    Okay, guess we'll stick with this forum and push through the times when the server is unreliable.

    I know that's what Alessa meant, and probably Valthrun does too. He's just being, shall we say, overly precise (though if you use a less polite word to describe him, I won't mind). Based on me around junior high and high school (drove my parents crazy).

    Alessa suggested she might be from a different Material Plane. Valthrun is splitting hairs, saying it must be the same Plane (or the binding-using-your-soul's-native-connection wouldn't work) but it might be a different planet.

    Oh, I see. Yeah; some D&D cannons have multiple "Material Planes" all woven together (for example, in plane-hopping games where you can visit Eberron and Forgotten Realms), but I wasn't sure if that was the case here. But you're also right that my psuedoscientific explanation is only really valid if Akta lived on this plane but not on this planet.

    I don't want to get in your way storytelling-wise. My idea for this setting was just the Nentir Vale with everything outside it vague and undefined. Valthrun is arrogant but he might be wrong. There might be multiple material planes. His history might be incomplete, she might be from this continent. I mainly am using this scene to get more backstory details and get to know the characters better; I'm not trying to force Alessa (or anyone) into anything.

    So basically I'm saying, I don't have a problem with however you want to spin it, don't feel like you have to make Alessa conform to anyone's idea other than your own. The world is big enough and we're working together to tell the story.

    Is the spell/attack still in effect, or has the connection been severed with the closing of the box?

    Valthrun is still suffering ongoing necrotic 5 (save ends). There is no other necrotic energy present. No further attacks can come through the mirror, because the box is closed.

    Oh, sorry. The last few days have been kinda hectic for me. A little bit of personal issues, been a bit busy... I figured I'd just wait for everyone else to post first. My bad. ^.^;

    I'll get a post up tomorrow. A bit busy tonight, sorry.

    I'm around, but since Alessa is not really invested in either the young apprentices or Douven, and knows little about the ongoing plot, I haven't had much input. Personally speaking, I'd just like to get back on the road and immerse the character in the plot more completely.
