Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: To The Attack...........


Peri’s spell had worked and the Black Robe sent the party to guard the dome. As the team reached the opening an explosion erupted at the far end of dome as one of the machines blossomed into flame. With that the Knight Cleric waved the group forward.

"Ok, lets get ourselves into position and cast our own spell quick as we can. We all know our targets. That pesky black robe may need attention but until he notices us ignore him. Surprise is vital ta our avoidance of death and I think we would all like ta check it once again. Be ready with the teleport spell please."

The group looked like just another bunch of Kobolds as they rushed into the dome. Ulthok lead them as he called softly, “Quick now to the that first machine.”

The group passed into the dome and as they hurried across the open space they detected a commotion in the air above the flaming machine. They saw missiles erupt on something in the air; he party knew Sirene was under attack.

“Ulthok, your friend with that cat seems to be in trouble, what are you going do to help?”;Peri ‘s thoughts were slipped into Ulthok consciousness. “I cannot leave the party now to help, my first duty is destroy that machine, she is strong, she’ll have deal with it.” Peri could tell Ulthok was distressed to see the Elven Mage in harms way.

“You still care for her too don’t you? She has moved on, but there are things you can’t hide from someone that reads your thoughts…….Well I can’t destroy that big wooden thingy, but I can try to distract the other magic ones attackers…….If you need me I’ll know.” The dragonet vanished and Ulthok felt her leave his should. “Stay clear of the machine..I don’t want you getting caught in our spell casting.” Ulthok hoped she heard him.

Trotting quickly the group approached the first machine. As they got within fifty yards Ulthok pulled the materials he’s need for the disintegration spell.

“Prepare, to defend, this should get some attention.”

Pointing up at the machines pivot the mage whispered the words to invoke the spell. From his extended hand a green ray emitted that would simple make whatever it touched vanish. The mage would destroy the center of the machine and as much more as possible.

Racing as fast as little wings would carry her Peri flew to Sirene’s aid. Approaching the flaming wooden thingy Peri saw Black Robed one surrounded by Kolbold archers. The doggy men looked funny trying the shoot into the air when the Mage maybe. With a smile she pulled the last of her apple tarts and hurled them at the Black Robe and the creature around it. “ Laugh at this you funny man,” she thought as she cast Tasha's Uncontrollable Hideous Laughter on the Black Robed one and those around it.

Subject: Stick Together............

If we keep together it will be less likely we attack each other. We'll pretty much look like a bunch of Kobolds coming to aid so it should go well for the run to the machines.

So here we go!

Subject: Reminder......

So here is Cor's attack plan.

Ulthok, the first ballista is yours for disintergrate spell. Second one is Valenes either flame or warping. Third one is Eclipse and I have the last. Once our four are destroyed we will meet up with Sirene and tele out.

So now are we splitting into four attack teams or going as one team machine by machine?

Subject: Ok..I forgot about Sorin......

I now see him listed in the character party list, but there is not a character sheet.

After a brief round of greetings Cor moved to the next, the Kings elite guardsmen a young but hard looking human.

“Knight Cleric Cor I am Sorin Malakir of his Kings household guard he has commanded me to join you in undertaking this mission, as such I am yours to command” Then before Cor could stop him the Guardsmen was on one knee before the Dwarf, head bowed.

So there are two NPC fighters at the moment. Bareel and Sorin.

I'd say that Lothor and Sorin are similar fighter types.

Bareel is the Berserker type Dwarv.

It would seem logical that Sorin would follow Cor.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Attack on the Run....

Here's a thought on the attack.

As we rush to the machine we split into two teams.
Team 1. Cor, Bareel, Rayne and Eclispe.
Attack the machine to left (as seen as we come in from the back, the one Sirene attacked would be on our right to the front).
Cor is already casting Flame Strike so Eclispe could do warp wood. Bareel and Rayne defend and kill giants and Kobolds.They then go on to the one beyound and Rayne can cast FlameStrike. Cor and Eclispe defend and kill giants and kobolds.

Team 2. Ulthok, Valene, Lothor and Lexson.

Ulthok will cast Fire Ball on the machine and Valene could be ready with Warp Wood. Lothor, Valene and Lexson defend.They move on to the front middle machine and Ulthok will Fire Ball that one.

Peri could go aid Sirene, Ulthok could give her a flask of Firey Burning to use on the Black Robe or other target.

After the middle machine is attack Ulthok will turn on the Black Role. Others could Hold Person and other stuff on it in the mean time.

I like Sirenes Feeblemind idea.

Ok, just my thoughts, I've got too much time on my hands.

Subject: Shuttle Crafts...

Can the shuttles be used to explore the area?
Do they sensors that could help locate the building?
They could cover more area faster than the mule.
The mule can be used to haul stuff that is found.

We should think about dealing with the basic need of the people so they don't get too hard to handle.

Maybe set up groups and let them rotate using the galley.
Sign out to leave the cargo bay for use to the head and maybe showers.

If there are extra quaters they can be used on a rotation to wash and clean. I thought there were guest quaters in the aft section.
Also if this is moon of Sihnon then that can't be too far away and we should be able to get help quicker. Now the guilds there could be running their "not so " up front stuff off this moon.

Would we be able to access the Cortex from the Atmo Prosser?
I'm guessing it is just our equipment not fuctioning that has the cortex down? Would the shuttles have seperate Cortex transmitter?

Subject: Branding the Herd..........

LV-426 moon of Sihnon, Rocinante Cargo Bay, 6:00 am Planet time

As Asher passed through the crowd he realized just how many folks were crammed into the cargo and they didn’t know who most of them were. Waving to Captain Havelock and Lord Hood as he crossed the bay the grabbed up some old manifest papers and writing supplies. When the two arrived, “We need to know just who we have here so we can keep track of all these folk. Please write down who is leaving the boat. This’ll give a good list of who we got and who went out. It’ll also take up some time before they start fretting. Be sure we get’um all even those that stay.“

Asher then stepped up on a small container so he could be seen by the folks gathered. “Folks, I’ve asked these gentlemen to list down your names so we know who we have as survivors here and who has left the boat to walk about. Please be so kind to cooperate with them, we can use the information to inform authorities about your safety as we work on your rescue.... Folks I was raised on farm and I ain’t much for sugar coating things. We are down on a place with breathable air and that’s about it so far. The crew will be fixin the boat, looken for shelter and trying find more supplies. I can see that many of you have come from successful families or businesses………………, that didn’t come easy to you and our survival won’t be easy. ……… Let us do our jobs and you help out when asked. If you have any talents you’ve ever learned that might help tell these men when you sign in. What you know may be just what we all need to get through this with as little discomfort as possible.”

The kid then went the control panel and lowered the cargo ramp and open the personnel door. Cautiously he stepped out and surveyed the landscape.

Oh it is so cool that Peri's spell worked!!!!

So Odywan and Peri-3PO.

Now to hot foot it to the machines. If look like a Kobld patrol rushing in to help then we can blend quickly and start attacking the machines.

Sirene's fireball worked well so maybe we have a chance.
If we drop the Black Robe then the shield might drop if it is controlling it. So we need to get to Sirene's aid quickly too.

Subject: Spells............

I just found a cool site that list all the spells we use in 2nd edition and they can be copied and put into a Word Doc for easy reference. I have actually copied all of the spells we gained last adventure and now have a very large Spell Book I can check faster than the Wizards Compendiums.

There are Priest Spells too.

I had a lot of spells from when we combined book that I had not found the discriptions so I didn't pick them for this adventure.

I hope this helps.

Subject: New Dirt.............

The flashing lights and bleeping alarms slowly quieted as the Kid and Ferris shutdown system after system. Tess’s maneuvers had got them on the surface in one piece, more or less. As the last of the system came under control Wyatt voice came over the com, "Asher, let the kind people out int' the fresh air please. Kind people, this is Captain Sung. I'd be mighty appreciative if'n you all could stay near the ship while my crew does the best we can t' see to repairs as well as yer needs. Thank you."

Asher looked over Wolf and with a sheepish look on his face said, “Gotta go….again.” The kid knew Ferris had everything under control now so leaving wouldn’t hamper the boat status. Putting the last of the tools away and wiping his hands on the work rag he turn and left the engine room. As he passed the bulk head he heard Wyatt’s voice again, "Wolf, we've precious little time for you and John t' get this baby back flyin'. Let me know what you need stat."

Ash knew they were going to open the doors though folks in the cargo bay would be thinking they were home safe; it would be time to show some strength so he dashed to his room and strapped on the girls. The custom rig kept a Python 6 under each arm and his Peace Keepers strapped to each leg. The straps carried extra reloads. Throwing on his duster and grabbing hat he started back, pausing he added the SPA30 and a bandoleer of shells, you never know what you might need. Passing his mirror he caught his image, “Well now you look more like security.”

Reaching the cargo bay he saw folks starting to gather impatiently near the cargo ramp. Stopping at the top of the gangway Asher let the duster hung open to add to the effect, “Folks…….please stand back from the doors. We’re on the ground , but we don’t know who or what is lurking on this chunk of dirt.” As he walked down stairs he continued. “It’s just breaking dawn out there and it may be a bit chilly, so if you ain’t dressed for it you may want to stay put. If you do go out don’t wander, we’d hate to see you carried off by who knows what…… I would expect the men folk to be gentlemen and the lady folk to understand this ain’t a resort and this is no vacation….. please be mindful of each other, we’re down but it still ain’t safe.”

Looking over at four boys that had entered the engine room. “ Don’t touch anything on the ship unless asked directly… we got repairs to make if we want to get out of this place and we don’t want no more troubles.” Reaching the bottom, “Now clear path so I check the area and open the bay doors.” Asher remembered when he was sheriff folks listened cause they thought he had the authority, he hoped it would work now.

Good post Viv,gave you an applaud for that. As the others finish their posts we'll see how it works. I liked Keeper's reference to Star Wars and the Jedi mind tricks.. I feel all Odywanish now, !!!!

If we succeed in avoiding the a fight or have to go with the Black Robe I may have Ulthok cast Darkness over the group so we are not seen so easily again.

If Peri's action gets posted and the others post to this too we can see if we roll well or start a combat round. I'd think Cor would whisper something to the other to hold attacking until we see if the spells work. In the mean time advance slowly to the Black Robe looking submisive like a good little Kobold.

Good stuff.... We have something and a bit of direction.

How much of the personal info you gave on the passengers does the crew know? This might be a great topic for the drew meeting as each shares what they know. Should we have Ash or Captain address the passenger next. They need to be advised not to wander about while the assesses the planet and what needs done next. Keeping the Lord and the Capt. Havelock herding the cats while the crew plans.

Maybe tell them we can't open the hatch yet until we are the air is and that there are no Reaves hiding out there.

Subject: Distraction......

The veil was working and they proceded toward the dome. Sirene was able to change and start her tunneling under the dome as the party moved on around. A commotion arose from the east as it was apparent that the other parties had started their attacks. The element of surprise was now lost but the plan was still holding. They watch as Black Robed figure appeared and started commanding the guards of the dome to follow toward the east. Nearly half of the defenders in the dome, including half the giants left to follow the robed leaders. Just as they thought their task might be a bit easier a third Black Robe stepped from the darkness with a troop of Orcs and Kobolds. It motioned to the party, “You there, you Kobolds, to me…..”it commanded. Time for a change of plans.

Cor whispered to Peri, “Now would be great time for a distraction if ye could manage." Hearing this Ulthok’s thought linked with the Small Dragonet. “Peri, if you could vanish and then fly up close the Black Robed one, cast a suggestion spell and whisper to it “You do not need these additional Kobolds, you have enough problems the ones you now have, just send them to guard the dome enterance.” I will cast a confusion spell on those following the Robed one so it will need to direct its attention there.

Ulthok whisper back to Cor, “ Advance to the Black Robe slowly, Peri and I will see if we can get it to dismiss us. If we must attack the Black Robe must die quickly.”

Ulthok then cast his Confusion spell on the Orcs and Kobolds following the Black Robe.

Subject: The Cat.......

Sirene could also send her cat back out through the badger hole to find out what is happening with the party. It may even be able to add to the distraction of the Black Robe.


If the distraction doesn't work and we must fight then maybe Rayne or some other could could cast entangle on the Orcs and Val cast Hold Person on the Black Robe. Arrows to eliminate the Orcs and and Kolbolds and just slash down the Black Robe.

Just an idea!

Subject: Diversion.........

Before we attack this group maybe a diversion could work.

If Peri and Ulthok communication telepathicly he can ask her to vanish then cast Suggestion on the Roled One and suggest something like" You don't need these nine you have enough to handle with the others, send them to gruard the dome enterance." Ulthok will clue in Cor with whisper.

At the same time Ulthok will cast "Confussion" on the Orc's and Kobolds so they become difficult for the Robed one handle. They start to wander off, fight with each other or just stand around. That should reinforce the Suggestion and we should be dismissed to go guard the dome.

If it doesn't seem to work and fight starts we to take out the Black Robe first.

Just my first thoughts.

Hello......... Time to add the Ody welcome.
A really good place to start here is “Pit F(r)iend's epic guide to getting started for newbies.” That will help you figure out how to navigate the halls of the in.
To meet folks in real time pop into the DragonChat where I act as the current resident bar tender. We offer our very own "Good Old Froth-n-Slosh", the stale pale ale with the foam on the bottom.
Just grab a mug off the mantel and draw a cold frosty one.

My assistant Igor is usually lurking around if I'm not there.

He never says anything, must have something to with having his tongue cut out by his last boss, that nasty bar tender over at the Orc Bar & Grill.
I'll have him put out a plate of "Lady Fingers" in your honor.

Reminds me we need to have another "Ladies Night" and restock.

Anyway the Posting Games are great place to get to know folks and of course the DragonChat is our favorite lounge.

So lurk or play, welcome to the Inn
