    Ran out of time - and since Dantie was itching for a post and I'd spent the last day discussing loot he has no stake in, wanted to prioritise him.

    I was trying to move the people into a pattern like obren did on the bridge of souls not seek him out.

    So, what counts as wielding the axe for the curse? Is picking it up enough or do you have to actively use it?

    Ah, got it. Sorry, misunderstood the sentence about taking after Obren (think I read it as taking OFF after Obren). Edited now.

    Carrying it without ever having used it is fine. Once you have used it once, even having it about your person counts.

    Ok. Yara will take the axe if no one else wants it.

    Perseus is taking the axe and breastplate, once we figure out how to lift the curse he will make good use of them.

    Get an enemy you can allow to escape, or perhaps capture. Telekinetic Thrust its weapon away and hurl the axe at its feat. Presumably use the remaining items thrown to attack its allies so that it isn't suspicious, the axe just seems to be a miss. Once it attacks, it is cursed. Telekinetic Thrust the axe back into our property. Afterwards sit back and every 2d10 days either it or its organisation/cause suffers the curse. Probably imprison so that it can't remove curse.
    Or, find some other way for an enemy to get its hands on the axe and be willing to use it.

    Interesting plan. But the curse has to be willingly accepted (which was cited as a reason the axe is still here).

    Ah yeah, I'd interpreted no one being willing and able as "too scared to use it or too weak to survive it" rather than it being a proper condition of the curse. Though I'd presumed something along those lines, which is why I didn't have Dominate as a plan. So does the curse make itself known to anyone holding the axe or can an ignorant person use it safely?

    The axe telepathically communicates the text written on it to anyone who picks it up in a language they understand. This gives them a chance to put it down with no ill effect.

    Also, the worst effects of the curse are (deliberately) the result of long term exposure. In the short term, you're handing a very powerful magic item to your enemy and only slightly injuring them with the constitution penalty.

    On the one hand, we could have a boat.

    OR we can have the box. Anything could be in the box, even a boat!


    ------

    Party vote, can I use the scroll to resurrect Ilyen? Without her, my forces are at a significant disadvantage for want of a middle-management style leader

    ------

    Okay so real talk, we are in hostile territory and need to be on the move. Let's resurrect Rosalind on our turf (and, preferably, by an NPC so we can continue towards our military objectives).

    Not gonna lie, would kill you all for a box.

    So, can Gunn pick locks? Because Yara can use her null psionics field to cancel all the magic temporarily. Then once the box is opened, whatever is in there won't have any magical/supernatural powers to threaten us with.

    Or you could use the necklace that opens the trap door. Unless no one picked it up. Kinda hazy on that

    Can't pick locks, but do have scrolls of Knock. We could also bring it back to the material plane, surely nothing bad will happen.

    Big guy with sword want smash box. Boxes smash good. Theo like smash box.

    Theo has nothing to add to the situation but is on guard.

    Yara has the psionic version of knock, so that's not a problem. The idea was to encase the box in an anti-magic field equivalent to bypass the magical defences and keep us safe from whatever is within. Could always sunder the locks, otherwise dispel from a safe distance.

    I presume all our minute per level buffs are over by now?

    Gunn stashed Rykar's body - and therefore his necklace - in his briefcase of holding.

    The next time he hands a bundle of papers to a judge, he may get some funny looks.

    And yes, no more minute per level buffs for you.

    Well, looking at hardnesss and hp of items, an unmagical Theo should be able to cut the locks off. Yara's null psionic field will stop any magic defences from activating and keep us safe if whatever is inside is magically dangerous, like a magical bomb. If its an non-magical bomb then *shrug*.

    And I can't remember where a necklace was mentioned.

    Hey y'all, in about 12 hours I'll be flying to Denmark for ten days, and I'll be trying to post regularly in my down time. That being said, if I miss a day and everything is going along smoothly, feel free to continue on.

    I land at 630 AM in my present time zone, or around 130 PM on Copenhagen. I'll try to post if I see something around then!

    Okay, have a good time and thanks for the warning.

    Also, now might be a good time to award xp for the whole temple "dungeon". Everyone but Rosalind receives 15,000xp. (Rosalind is getting a template in lieu - which I will probably regret later!)
