    Saving Throw vs Greater Scrying (1d20+23)[35]

    Scrying only works on individuals, so I'm saving for Arfaern Lethanil himself, not the selu'kiira. The above roll was modified +5 for Secondhand Knowledge and -2 for Likeness or Picture, as it'd be fair to assume that Sydil had seen a picture of him during her time at Windsong Tower.

    Heh. You did more than try; you were successful.

    Now make a Fortitude save.

    Go ahead and roll a Spellcraft check as well; DC 30 to identify the spell if you make your save. If you fail your save, it will become clear.

    Battlegate is the name of a small ruined castle that sits between the borders of Cormy and Sembia, near the Vast Swamp. The castle was built around the hamlet of Battlerise, a small community of farmers and shepherds. The hamlet used to be much larger as it was the home of House Auantiver, but that was over 1,000 years ago. The only reason that Battlerise is even mentioned in recent histories is because of the mercenary band named the Company of Jade. In 1247 DR, Year of the Purple Basilisk, the adventuring company explored the ruins of Battlegate and encountered a basilik there that slew most of the company. The surviving members renamed themselves the Men of the Basilisk and took it as their standard and symbol. They operated for another three dozen years out of Battlegate before retiring and disbanding the company.


    Knowledge (History) DC 30 or Knowledge (Local: Cormyr) 20
    Spoiler
    Show
    House Auantiver hired the Sword Heralds to create dozens of connected refuges and hideaways underneath Battlegate, naming it the Auantiver Labyrinth and stocking it with all manner of dangerous creatures and beasts. It was popular for nobles and adventuring companies to brave the Labyrinth and though many died or were lost, the lucky few who navigated it succesfully were allowed to keep whatever riches and treasures they managaed to escape with.

    The Sword Heralds themselves were a mystery that has not been fully unraveled. Cormyrian mages that had great power in creating extradimensional spaces, they traveled Cormyr selling their magic to whomever could afford it, creating many hidden refuges and hideaways all across Cormyr. They sometimes involved themselves in the early politics of Cormyr, though they remained neutral with respect to differing factions and stayed popular among the people. They vanished one day, and if someone knows where they went, or why they did what they did, the knowledge has stayed secret.

    Chambers, how do you want Ayorra and Sydil to handle this? Doing both CoP and commune at the same time so we can interleave our questions and adapt based on answers to the others' questions would be the best approach, but trying to do that in PbP would take forever, and I assume that Ayorra casting commune and just asking "Was the answer to Sydil's first question truthful? Was the answer to Sydil's second question truthful?" etc. would be boring and not exactly kosher.

    We'll go with a stated broad intent OOC and a general list of questions. Making posts to fact check each answer won't be necessary; we'll assume the whomever isn't asking direct questions is verifing the others answers. So list a few questions in the post and I'll roll the dice at home. I generally use the board roller for PbP but in this instance not knowing the dice roll is part of it.

    Which Plane will you be contacting? I'm guessing Outer Plane, Greater Deity to contact Mystra.

    Okay, the questions Ayorra thinks are important are those about where in Battlegate the kiira is, whether it has a possessor at the moment, and what sorts of things would get in the way of obtaining it. So, potential question list:
    • "What is the first name of the current possessor of the kiira, if any?"
    • If the answer to the previous question is a name, "Is the possessor currently in Battlegate?" otherwise "Is there any creature in Battlegate that knows about the kiira?"
    • "Is the kiira warded or protected in any way that would harm us?" worded in a way that says we don't care about traps that would send an alarm or the like, just ones that would actually interfere with our retrieving it.
    • "What is the greatest danger we will face in attempting to retrieve the kiira?" worded in such a way that the answer would be along the lines of 'fire' or 'illusions' or 'undead' or whatever, not just 'magic' or the like.
    • "Are there any wards that would prevent or block magical means of getting in and out of Battlegate?"

    Vael, we have 2-3 more questions, any ideas of things I missed?

    Which Plane will you be contacting? I'm guessing Outer Plane, Greater Deity to contact Mystra.
    Well, that's up to Vael, since Sydil's using contact other plane and Ayorra's verifying with commune. Ayorra would obviously feel that Mystra is the most trustworthy source, but if Sydil disagrees Ayorra won't complain. Much.

    Sydil will probably go with Mystra just because she's a neutral option. If she contacts an Elven deity like she might be expected to... well, she's not entirely sure what the result would be, and would rather not find out. And contacting a Drow deity would be asking for even more trouble.

    Also, I'm thinking that for any yes/no questions, we won't need to verify, which will free up questions from Contact Other Plane. Commune doesn't have a failure chance, after all. For questions that aren't yes/no, Commune will clearly be the one verifying, as Commune can only get yes/no answers. Further, note that we get way more questions with Commune than Contact Other Plane. COP gets 1 per 2 CL, while Commune gets 1 per CL. So, we should be able to get a larger number of questions answered even if we verify every COP question with Commune.

    Here are some other thoughts for other questions:

    • If there is a possessor of the kiira, and they have an ambiguous name, it may be worthwhile to narrow down their name further by going for family name, last name, or whatever title they're currently holding (if any).
    • If the kiira is not in Battlegate, we'll probably want to try and determine where it is. Alternately, if it IS in Battlegate, perhaps we could ask a question to try and narrow down the exact location.
    • There may well be more than one big danger. Maybe we could ask for the second greatest danger?
    • Perhaps we could also ask something like where the biggest clue/hint/information about the kiira is? Because even if the kiira is blocked or warded, there may be clues to its existence and presence that aren't. And even if we narrow it down with our spells, a bigger source of information would be good.

    Also, lets sort questions into yes/no and single word answers. Olive is Yes/No, Navy is Single Word, to represent the caster of the particular spell.

    • "What is the first name of the current possessor of the kiira, if any?"
    • If the answer to the previous question is a name, "Is the possessor currently in Battlegate?" otherwise "Is there any creature in Battlegate that knows about the kiira?"
    • "Is the kiira warded or protected in any way that would harm us?" worded in a way that says we don't care about traps that would send an alarm or the like, just ones that would actually interfere with our retrieving it.
    • "What is the greatest danger we will face in attempting to retrieve the kiira?" worded in such a way that the answer would be along the lines of 'fire' or 'illusions' or 'undead' or whatever, not just 'magic' or the like.
    • "Are there any wards that would prevent or block magical means of getting in and out of Battlegate?"

    I'm not sure if you posted in response to userpay's post or mine. As he's busy this month, do you want to edit it and take some action?

    Dice/Vael

    Those look good. Last call for questions before we run it. Also, Vael, Contact Other Plane (Outer Plane, Greater Deity) requires a DC 16 Intelligence check to avoid having your Intelligence and Wisdom dropped to 8 for 5 weeks. Sydil has a +9 Intelligence modifier, so she needs a 7 or better to succeed. Are there any spells or other preparations you want to make beforehand to prepare for that?

    Edit: It's uncommon for a spell to add a bonus to ability checks. The first one I've found so far is Improvisation, Bard 1.

    An ability check is really just an untrained skill check, and follows the same rules for taking 10 and 20. So long as she is unthreatened- which as far as I know she is- Sydil should be able to just take 10 and be fine.

    At this point, I also suggest using a commune question to ask whether or not the kiira actually IS in Battlegate. Call me paranoid. But that's definitely a question for Commune.

    Of course, I also suggest using commune to confirm all of Sydil's answers as true if we don't have any other questions we'd like to ask.

    Yay, forums are back! More questions:

    • "In what way are the wards most likely to harm us?"
    • "Are the dreams/nightmares related to Midsummer in any way?" phrased to suggest "is there some fancy ritual related to them and Midsummer," not as in "are the guys behind this going to pull something on Midsummer"
    • If the answer to the previous question is yes, "Can we find out more about that relationship using/within the kiira?" otherwise skip this one


    Any more ideas, Vael?
