    ... I'm gonna be disappointed if Ellie didn't just kick that wand into an ooze at the bottom of the pit with a roll like that. :p

    Honestly, I treated it as your recovery roll to jump to safety. ^^

    Is Belginabo the great wizard going to be daunted by this temporary setback? No way! He picks himself up from the ground, such as it is, and takes check of his surroundings. Wow, look at that girl wrestling the goblin for this... is that a wand? Fascinating! And just like that, poof, gone! Magic is so cooool.

    I'm gonna put the result of that check here because the ICs getting a touch crowded, and this lets you explain it to everyone your own way.

    Belginabo can't work out exactly what happened, he doesn't have the training for that. (That takes a feat in 2E!) A guess would be teleported away or turned invisible. But neither of those quite explain the one thing he can recognize for sure: the timing. The magic happened right before the ground shook and the wind kicked up. That can't be a coincidence. Whatever that magic was caused the disturbance, Bel could stake his reputation as a great wizard on that!.

    Ah. Well if Ellie is going to fall to her doom, I guess she'll take comfort that she's bringing the little bastard with her. Also, dang, looks like the dice are handing out bad roll like cake to those apes. XD


    So... what is going on with Ellie now? I suppose just wait a bit since she has vanished or something to that effect.

    Thanks, that's great. Indeed I'm still a little shaky on some rules...

    Also, it looks like I left a typo on that first Athletics roll. Here's a replacement: [roll]1d20+4[/roll[

    *nods* Sorry to take you out of the scene for a bit Deegs, I want to resolve the Raka and Peridora situation (and give poor Xacha a chance to do something!) before we get back to Ellie and Koma. It's the price of grabbing that damned McMuffin McGuffin

    Also congrats Gwyn! Nice check to get across there! I'm gonna wait to see what Adria tries before declaring if Bel's aid was a success or failure, and then apply the results post facto (Standard DC for aid is 20, but I may bump this down to 15, depending on how Adria tries to solve this.)

    Wow, situation changes fast.

    I'm not sure there's much Raka can do to help the monkey now. What kind of check would that be? Alternatively, can Raka just jump off now?

    Athletics, either way. It works for a feat of strength prying it free, or for GTFO. The latter's def safer though. DC15 to jump to another platform, 20 to help the monkey.

    My turn to screw up the roll tags.

    (d20+7)[24]

    Also,do we have Hero Points to reroll checks? The book says we usually start with one in a session, but I don't know how it works with PbP

    The DC on the Athletics roll was 20. I set this based on proficiency rather than by checking Adria's skill ranks - Hefting the two up like that would've required real strength and strong training. It was an Expert task - out of your league, in retrospect.

    And yet you came this frecking close all the same! Bel's aid would have given you a +2! That would have been enough. And I said I was willing to adjust the DC on the aid check based on how you went about this. So the resolution here comes down to my fiat on the aid check.

    *parses fingers*

    I will be stern here, in the interests of later kindness. So I will stick with my original intent. I did not intend to lower the DC on an Athletics assist. Belginabo is not that strong, and he's not playing to his strengths with this, so I don't feel the need to give mercy. If you focused on using the time to try something else, I would have lowered the DC to 15. And you sooomewhat did? So I will grant both paths of resolution, and apply Bel's aid twice.

    On the Athletics check. Belginabo fails. That means the lift check fails. You came so close I will permit you to hold on firmly this round. But just this round.

    Which leaves your diplomacy check. Which was a good roll, and got Belginabo's aid... but you should've maybe rolled Religion to see what Adria knew of Goblin faith before trying that angle.
    For what it's worth, I think that's a fair ruling.

    Now, we got another round, but odds don't look any better. I don't have a great deal of ideas. Belginabo has an adventurer's pack which includes rope, but I can't see him carrying this around for a stage performance, so he can't have it with him right now.

    @ Syless: Let me know what you want to do and I'll try to see how I can help.

    You are evil, evil, evil. Evil I say. I haven't even gotten to express any of Adria's trauma and she's getting more. Should I be making that roll here and typing based on that, or should I give her message and then roll to see its effect?

    So the monkey is saved! Can Raka keep it?

    Also, can she see there are people in danger, that might need a bit of muscle?

    Should I hold off on Zarra's next action until the next round?

    Chime in if you want! Sorry for not holding off I'd just been eager to reach this scene, and everyone was posting and engaged, so I let things plough ahead.

    (Also vital question! Is adorable pet named Goopy or Gloopy?)

    For the record, I'm already heavily invested in this game, and if we want to ensure it's longevity, I've had good experience with Discord servers for OOC stuff. Just tossing it out there as a suggestion.

    Can you convince a cranky Mwangi animal trader to let you keep it?

    (Gimmie a sec. You may be able to hang onto it for a little while, minimum. Though orders will require a Nature check.)

    Also yeah, she can see. Feel welcome to post Raka trying to reach the scene with Adria, Bel and Peri, but don't roll to act just yet. I'm working on a resolution.

    I'm okay with it, though I'd like to see if we've a firm majority before setting one up.

    (Also glad you're invested! I've got a loooot more planned, though I need to make sure I develop subplots for everyone. Got threads in place, just need to pull them forward.)

    I'd suggest unanimous instead of majority anyway. Nothing sucks more than feeling like you're missing something if you aren't interested.

    Zarra isn't picky about details. And it's an ooze, so it desn't come when you call it anyway. But for what it's worth, I think it was Goopy.

    And can I say that I'm charmed as that a bit of random impov has become central to Zarra's situation?

    But, no, no, this is good. Keep the momentum. I'd have chimed in earlier but I couldn't get a decent connection anywhere.

    Valin, are you imagining that a fall into the pit of ooze is an instant kill, or could Zarra climb down there with her alchemist gloves (and bare feet) and rescue someone who fell into one of Goopy's cousins?

    Theoretically, yeah, but there's a problem with that. Namely that it's stupid deep. We're talking bottomless pit looking levels. The worry is less Goopy's cousins (at least short term) and more just impact damage from the fall. Survive that, then the worry is wandering oozes.

    (Like, my visual for the Ooze Pit is pretty much the Kindergarten from Steven Universe, but waaaaaay more vertical which is why I didn't pull a ref out earlier.)



    The main way the actual workers here got around was by using the platforms and a crane system. But Koma's monkeys have left most of that in disrepair by treating this as a platforming game, and smashing stuff while trying to cross.

    I think the gorilla's already trained.

    I would need to pick up the Ride feat to properly fight while mounted though. Level 3, maybe level 2 if Valin lets me substitute the skill feat for the general feat. And all of this is moot if Raka can't keep it.

    I'm willing to consider it, gorillas aren't typically mounts but I'll throw an exception here for funsies. But OOC, the gorilla has an established owner. You will probably have to deal with Kato if you want to keep it. And I'm not sure you'll be able to -

    Ahahaha! No spoilers! I haven't finished this next post yet.
