    Derp. Sorry, was really busy today and yesterday. Will get a post up tomorrow morning with a hopefully cohesive plan.

    Whoops. I clicked on the in character thread last night, meant to post a response. When I saw the greyed-out thread in my subscriptions, I completely blanked on getting something in. Sorry.

    Gonna give Ravian a day or so to make a roll before I do anything. Don't want to wait too long on this part of the scene.

    D'oh. That's why I need to be more careful about my subscriptions list.

    Hope you feel better soon, BlasTech!

    Alright, to kick this thing off, somebody's gotta roll Mind. If there's no volunteers, I'll make the roll tomorrow.

    I can do it. DB has a better mind than Crown, last I checked. Would you pay Chemist and Wary on that?

    Chemist, no. Wary, yes. You're looking for something, not trying to mix anything.

    Sorry guys. Sick again. No posts from me for a little bit.

    Also. I'm heading on a trip for the next few weeks. Think I'll have Internet connection where I'm going. But posting might be a bit more sporadic for the next few weeks.

    Yep, recovering. Food poisoning. Really knocked me out for a day, but thankfully short-lived.

    With that roll, Grease has full awareness of where she is in relation to the main landmarks of the room (tunnel, stairs, curator and the other hiding places of the group). She can find Rinda or Soot in the dark, as they haven't moved since the spell went up and knows which way the guard Dive Bomb was fighting would have to take to get back to the tunnel.

    Ok, to be clear: our goal here was to get to the green stones, right? And hopefully see what was going on with the High Councilor?

    My understanding of it was that we were here mainly to see what happened. The High Councillor led us down here, but DB is here to try to get the Curator to a safe place. Grabbing the stones would be nice, but saving pony life takes precedence, at least in his mind.

    I am debating the wisdom of Crown Cork snatching up the stones. It will probably have some negative consequences, but then again, he also saw it nearly dissipate the darkness spell, and he's working under pressure.

    This will surely end well.

    EDIT: Post coming later today.

    It seems you can all do the same thing for vastly different reasons. Fascinating.

    So Grease is currently heading towards the gems. Would it be reasonable for her to emerge from the darkness spell and see Crown with them? Or does she still have to get past the guards first?

    Soot's spell covers the area where the gems are, unless it's dispelled by her or another gemsplosion. Soot can see ponies with her detect life spell, and you can assume she's relaying that to Grease (in the absence of Ravian doing so explicitly IC).

    That means she knows there is at least one guard approaching, but they can slip past thanks to the warning of the spell and grease's own recollection of the area.

    Did Grease actually find Crown? If so, that will change what he's going to do.

    That's what I was thinking, given that she hasn't had trouble navigating around. I would have had her jump in to help him, but with everything covered by the darkness spell she can't exactly tell what's going on.

    Yep, per the earlier post, Grease can navigate the darkness and find ponies so long as she has Soot with her. Just RP some convo, she's your spotter.

    Transiting again today. Thankfully there is lots of wifi around.

    Skadoosh.

    Now is a good time to remember that Earth Ponies can bank critical successes. This feels like a good time for a good roll, but I would like to roughly hear what the effect might be first.

    Well basically the success is getting the gems far enough apart to stop them pulling together.

    The separation was going to cause a magical backlash as foreshadowed. The crit success will stop that damage.

    After carefully considering the situation, I will accept this crit success.
