    Full-blown Revolving Door Afterlife, in other words.

    This might be a blessing, because Kath just botched his Will save.

    I'll be doing a few of these 'trick' rolls. You saw an example with that option I gave Kath earlier to use a failed reflex save to succeed. In this case, it'd seem obvious that the will save is to avoid what happens due to reading the book, but nope! It's to avoid closing it. Making willpower work against your better judgement.

    I'm all but certain that this is a lot less sneaky than I think it is, but there you have it!

    Well, obviously it's less sneaky now that you've told us how you do it!

    I know I keep dropping the word 'companions' around, and I'm not gonna put keeping track of them all on your shoulders. So! I'm editing the very first post on the very first page as a placeholder for an inventory of sorts. You'll be notified in the IC thread as well when you officially recruit an individual, but that placeholder is where you can check what's what at any time.

    Right now Denara is the base of sorts; the listing will tell you their name, their class, how loyal they are to the group, etc.

    Hopefully this helps both now and down the road!

    (A note about loyalty: While this score can have repercussions, don't pressure yourselves into minmaxing the scores. Just roleplay what comes naturally and the rest will sort itself out. Heck, you don't even have to chat on downtime if you don't want to. Note that repercussions don't include 'screw this, I'm outta here'. Once you recruit somebody, they're with you period.)

    Elias means Door B. Since Orin's moved into the hallway, Elias can probably see all five doors.
    Of course, he chose it completely at random, since he isn't listening for the hum.

    Alright, I'm so far behind I don't think I can possibly catch up at this point. Life has been pretty crappy the last couple of weeks and I can barely muster the energy to stay involved in the other pbp that I've been playing for quite a while now. I haven't really been able to get into Uregaunt's head as a character either. I actually feel bad for hanging on this long when someone else might be having a lot more fun in my spot, so I'm gonna go ahead and formally withdraw from this game. I've been so uninvolved that it should make very little difference. Feel free to NPC Uregaunt or have him casually fade away. Let me know if you want to NPC him and I can wait to delete the sheet as I've been meaning to go through and remove some of my Myth Weavers sheets that are definitely never going to be used.

    Goodbye and good gaming folks.

    I share Malak's sentiment. It was good to know you.

    As to the fate of Uregaunt, two things:

    Firstly, I personally would feel a tad cheap playing a chaarcter that isn't mine. Frankly, I don't think I could do him justice, and I'll have my hands full with the companions.

    Secondly:

    Spoiler
    Show
    UREGAUNT -

    It would be a long time before the Sword Coast again heard of the ancient-blooded magi, but when they did, they heard him as a herald. Uregaunt, riding at the head of a group of Harpers including Elminster of Shadowdale and Storm Silverhand, lead a charge against the Zhentarim hordes that would finally seek to conquer all in their path.

    The battle was long as bloody; swords rang and spells flashed for many days and nights, but at the end, the bards would recount, the symbol of the Harpers rose from the circles of bodies that lay scattered across the scorched plains. Among the survivors, no one spoke the name of the archmage leader, but this was not his last appearance.

    When next in the following years Mystra appeared in physical form, her Chosen magical disciple risen from the blood of Netheril and the spirit of the harp always appeared at her side.

    Sorry to see you go, JPIL. I was looking forward to getting to know the first wizard I ran into on a PbP game. Hope things get better for you, dude.

    As a side note, I'm moving into my new apartment tomorrow and over the weekend, and I don't know how soon we'll get internet going, so if I don't post for a day or two, that would be why.

    Damnit... Look's like Santino's gunna have to take a virtual level of Internal Decorator .

    Anyway... I'm guessing it'll be the usual DC 20 Disable Device check to bypass this trap, so if one of you can give me a hand, I'll have a 50/50 chance of doing it .

    Not unless Santino can suddenly cast dispel magic, unfortunately.

    The top four drawers are untrapped and therefore fair game, though. I forgot to add that Elias' knowledge of Spellcraft means he knows they look to be vulnerable to something as simple as Open/Close...maybe.

    Well, that would be useful... if I had prepared that spell. Barring any unusual stuff re: the mirror, the mysteries of the Pink Boudoir of Doom may have to wait for another day. There are still four unexplored doors on this third floor.

    Isn't bypassing a magical trap a DC 20 Disable Device check?

    In cases where the magical trap has a trigger that can be nonmagically removed, yeah. But this is more like Explosive Runes than Lightning Rod - there aint an off switch.

    Unless you have rubber gloves lying around or something, maybe.

    No rubber gloves, but maybe strips of leather wound around the hands, if I remember rightly, leather is low conductive.

    True, but the traps aren't a one-charge and it's still magically locked from the inside anyway. *shrug* Those darn wizards.

    Does that silence mean I cant hear the others moving and talking in the bedroom? (Even with the door open) ... Just checking if I have your meaning right before Orin reacts.

    Also, if he calls out right now - will the others hear?

    Ah, no, you can hear the others just fine, for now. But aside from them and that humming, the rest of this floor is quiet.

    So at my new apartment, we had an interesting couple of days where we had internet, via plugging in an ethernet cable, but every time we plugged in a different computer, we couldn't plug in a different one. Apparently we need a router to use my roommate's computer and my laptop, not to mention his XBox all at the same time.

    Anyway, he should be bringing a router when he comes back from visiting his fiance tomorrow, so I should be able to catch up on everything then. I assume we're already well into another quest, so I'll probably just stay out and catch up when you guys are done?

    I agree fully Aquila.

    As to what Santino is up to (apart from trying to keep the very scant contents of his stomach from coming up at the sight of the very pink room), I have no idea what he can really do at the moment apart from being the proverbial door/wall/floor/lock checker... And maybe occasional wise crack maker .

    EDIT: We're still just checking out the house @ JBT.

    Very little in-game time has passed since you last posted, JTB... mainly due to the forums being down for a couple days. I think it's no problem if you want to join in now.

    In response to Aquila's question: I'm not really ready to NPC Tankerred until TSM officially calls it. Fortunately, we have an easy excuse.

    He's a dwarf! He's probably just getting blitzed in the tavern!

    Ha, how could I forget that? That's the excuse we always used in my IRL group when the dwarf's player was absent. He spent more time drinking than adventuring...
    Well, off to find Bria then.
