    Okay, somebody else say something, I'm stumped.

    Maybe we retreat for the moment, then either come out swinging or talking?

    Well, there goes nothing. Otherwise, we're going to have to try and take him out. We kite him into the forest where he can't move as well and take him from range if possible. I am, as ever, open to suggestions.

    Sounds good. I'll drop an entangle and tree stride away before climbing into the canopy and laying down some ranged hurt.

    "Urka hasen" is the Giant term for the smaller races- the common races, but also the goblins and lizardfolk and stuff.

    Sure, you make me make a Knowledge (history) check, one of two I have no ranks in. What next? Is he going to demand to know the proper way to design a catenary arch?

    How should we handle this? Do we need to make trained Knowledge (history) checks to know about what he's asking? (I can, but it requires expending lore of the gods.) Or can we recount it with basic knowledge?

    No, no, I assume that you all know the general stuff- the Dhakaani Empire, the whole Xen'drik invasion, the establishment of Galifar, and the Last War.

    The basic stuff is all common knowledge. You guys could all take 10 and make the DC.

    Sorry, guys. I honestly thought that this talky-stuff would be over quickly.

    Are we going to do the "lower level characters get more XP" thing? 'Cause if not, there's a good chance of us being wildly different levels at some point due to death and resurrection.

    Do I level up now or after we rest for the night?

    Edit: Oh, and how is sign (SpC, +5 to your next initiative check) going to work with group initiative?

    Oh, right, my bad. 'Teia gains 3125 XP.

    After you rest.

    It gives you guys a +5 initiative bonus. The character with the highest initiative modifier rolls your group initiative, and casting Sign gives you guys +5.

    No, just looking at our sheets and realizing that Vivian is the only one who can do damage to them.

    (Well, technically I suppose I could use my swordsage maneuvers to do 1d6 damage every other round, or blunt arrows to subdue them.)

    Not as far as I can tell:

    I don't think the last sentence does anything to modify the first other than adding that they die at 0 rather than -10. They still can't be killed with arrows, kukris, or glaives.

    Edit: Actually, I could damage them, either with blunt arrows or using my bow as a quarterstaff. Unfortunately the former would only do non-lethal and the second would work once. And then I'd die, because my bow is my bound tree.

    You're probably right... although I could still see an argument for it.

    We still have a few tricks up our sleeves to keep those sorts of monsters occupied, but Jeff is right: we need supplementary weaponry. Unrelated: I need to remember to account for Ek'ann's Steely Resolve in the future.

    Initiative (including Sign) (1d20+5)[11] Wait, wait. Group initiative. So Vivian and/or Arapim rolls for all of us, with a +5 modifier.

    Knowledge (dungeoneering) to identify: (1d20+12)[20]
    Knowledge (dungeoneering) for KD: (1d20+12)[32] +4/+4, whoohoo!

    What are the walls like, and how high is the ceiling?

    The big guy is known as a summoning ooze. This is a particularly large one. Their most potent weapon is the ability to summon other monsters to aid them.

    The other two, you recognize as a rare form of ooze known as a living spell. (Editor's note: Knowledge (arcana) to try to figure out what spell it is.)

    Ten feet high, then dome-shaped. Forty feet high at the center; the ooze is on about 15 feet up, just out of reach of a normal melee attack.
