Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Am I Not My Brother's Keeper.................

The image of the naked warrior faded as a pair of strong hands seized Ulthok’s shoulders and began to drag him across the floor away from the carnage of the dying roaches. The illusion formed by the poison vanished. The strong warrior cleric quickly tended the Halfling, dispelling the poison and then healing his body. As his body started to feel stronger it was quickly evident that something else was wrong.

From the darkness behind Cor something moved forward and struck out at the Dwarve, but before Ulthok could pass a warning a shocking wave of nauseating stench gripped him as a rotting fleshed figure stepped forward. Cor fell, knocked unconscious and Ulthok vomited, but there was a realization that he knew the figure. Through decaying teeth in a face of dripping flesh that had withered and turn gray came the words from the undead zombie, “Hello little Brother”...........

The shock that an undead zombie spoke was nearly a frightening as realizing it came from what was once his brother Divot. A zombie with self control is not the usual undead. Ulthok had just envision himself rising to enter combat and honor his brother, now that thought was smashed by the horror of that same corrupted brother was now trying to kill him and his friend.

This abomination has rendered Ulthok’s old friend unconscious, the mage knew he had to do something. Gathering himself together as best he could Ulthok stepped aside to keep Cor out from between the mage and what now could be a Zombie Lord. Ulthok needed to drive the creature away and perhaps clear the stench from the air.

The nausea and vomiting was clouding the mages thoughts of magic, no spell was coming to his mind. His hand was rummaging in his element pouch searching for something. A familiar object brushes his fingers, the cool stone of his wondrous Obsidian Panther.

Time was fleeting, Cor needed protection, options were minimal, but this could be just what was needed to buy them some time. A panther would not be repulsed by the smell of rotting Halfling flash, indeed it might excite it. If the panther could drive the zombie back, even seriously damage it with claws and bites, they would have time act further.

Quickly a plan formulated, as Ulthok pulled the Obsidian Panther from his pouch he also found his Potion of Fire Resistance. As the panther would attack the zombie the mage would drink the potion in preparation of next attack. He didn’t have a spell of Fire Ball, but he did have another vial of Oil of Fiery Burning.

Tossing the figurine to the ground in front of him and muttering the command the lean lethal features of the great cat appeared. “Tear up the Zombie”, Ulthok commanded, releasing the natural fury of the predator against the abomination.

The stench still turned the Halflings stomach, he would need to wait for the vomiting to pass before he could drink the potion. But when he did he would then take that vial of oil and crush it on the horror. Let the fire consume this thing and let the memory of Divot be brightened by the glow. Ulthok would do his best to end this corruption of his brother’s body.

Subject: Careful....

You two be careful over there, Cor and Ulthok are unable to help at this time. It may be a few rounds before they can help.

I've been talking to Keeper and Tann because Cor is unconscious and Ulthok is not so good either. Cor won't be attacking so I need to be sure Ulthok doesn't hurt him so I've been going over ideas with him.

I should be posting by Friday.

Subject: Healing??????

I wasn't sure how to add up the amount of healing Ulthok needed to get back to top health. So I added a bit to the OCC that would cover him drinking a potion to add to Cor's healing to him back up. He needs 30 so hopefully he gets it.

BTW did I get it right that Maggot has Ulthok's brother Divot's axe?

Hey there Hammer, gee I guess it's welcome.

This surely will get interesting with your thought behind Alasdairs actions. Between you and Tann things will stay at a high level of action.

We really need to plan now.

Gee, what a sissy Death Knight that the first thing it does is blow a horn to call in four more undead fighters. So much for the ever so powerful Death Knight image, .

Posted on 2012-02-12 at 20:18:49.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Smile................

Well if the Lesser Death Knight can radiate fear for 5 feet why not counter that with humor? Let nature help Althena to overcome what Alasdiar projects. It should also help the party members resist the fear.

We still need to be careful not to hurt Althena if we attack and start combat against Alasdiar. Distration can be very useful; I hope things go well for us now. If Maggots words had an effect on Alasdiar then the multiple images should add to that effect.

Glad you folks liked the scene, now back to Q&A for more plans.

We need to lure Alasdair away from Althena and the sword, that was part of the idea of the images, so what else can we do?

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: A Chorus of Grateful Dead........

Ulthok struggled to move, the poison cramping his limbs not letting him rescue his friend and long time companion. Cor and Conall both had been with him since the King had formed their group in what seemed so long ago. The odd band had seen much together and Ulthok owned them dearly, though he would never speak of it openly. He had to save the Dwarve. Who else could he turn to rescue to local towns from their excess ale.

The poison was affecting his mind, scenes of old times appeared and faded. As he thought he struggled to thrust his sword into the crusted shell of the roach that entrapped their leader and cleric, he could see Cor emerging from vile creature body as if being birthed. The warrior cleric wiggled and waggled as babe might to be free of its mother and start life on its own. The Halflings head rang as the poison pounded at his system.

A voice boomed nearby, a failure voice… but it must be the effects of the venom… Maggot was utterly destroyed save for his hand.

“Vile off spring of Mammon! You have what does not belong to you! You seek what you cannot have! Show yourself true or forever be a coward! Maggot longs for the son of Glasya to fall this day. You will not deny me my revenge!”

“Have you fallen so far from what you once were to this? Hiding behind the skirt of a woman! Stealing what is not yours! Or do you feel you are greater than what your new father has made you? Do you look to have more than what you know your new master will let you keep! Never will you sip of the sweet nectar of the Gods Alasdair the Lost. Forever will you feed of the table scraps of Mammon, for he will not let you keep what should truly be yours now will he? Take up the sword yourself or has he truly whipped you into a good little curd?”

The naked form of a man passed, barely perceptible to the Mages sight, carrying a very recognizable weapon. Ulthok knew he must be near death himself, how else could it explain the appearance of Maggot carrying the axe of his dead brother Divot?

Ulthok struggles to see who it was this mirage was addressing, but the poison was drawing down on him. Faintly he heard another voice approaching, "I am coming Ulthok. Hang on my friend, soon you shall feel better."

Cor grabbed up Ulthok dragging him away from the battle. As they settled Ulthok felt a warm smoothing sensation pass through his body as his old friend layed hands on him. The cleric prayers of aid flushed the poison from the Halflings body. Then the pain and weariness ebbed as those same strong hands let the grace of his deity heal the wounds and damage that the scorpion bugs had inflicted.

Using his best well rehearsed cherub smile the little man gleamed up at the rugged breaded face of the warrior cleric, “That surely deserves a tankard of that old hairy Red Dragon Inn innkeepers private ale and if we get back I’ll buy you a whole keg.” Getting to his feet Ulthok’s attention was now drawn to the commotion across the room. Standing by the glowing light was now a monster in Alasdair’s armor.

The mirage was indeed a young strong version of their Bard friend Maggot. The man moved with a skilled grace and he was indeed carrying Divots axe.

“If this “New” Maggot carries a Rydenham family weapon then he needs to be considered family and deserves Rydenham family help,” Ulthok muttered. A mischievous gleam came to Ulthok’s eye as he turned to Cor.

“What better way to distract your enemy then to preset them with too many options.” With that the Halfling grabbed his sword and scurried up behind the naked fighter so he was blocked from the skeletal Paladin view.

“Maggot, old follow, you carry my family’s weapon so maybe you’ll stand better if you were twice the man you are today.” With that the Mage cast “Change Self” and a moment later there now stood a second naked Maggot behind the first .

“And if one is good then more is better.”

Ulthok whispered the words needed to cast Mirror Image and in an instant several more images of the naked Maggot appeared. A small army of viral, chiseled naked bodied warriors now mimicked the bard’s movements as Ulthok tried to copy what the bard did. Distraction and confusion of the now openly evil Alasdair might help the true warrior in his quest.

“For Divot and the grateful dead.” Ulthok stood hopeful that this would aid their quest.

(O.O.C. I hope I got the time thing straight so all of this might happen in this turn. By Ulthok being disengaged from combat and also still hastened he could move and cast the two spells. Tann will have to roll a 1d4+3 to see how many images appear. BTW, Kyle you could have Maggot cast mirror image on yourself and make ever a bigger army naked dancing Maggots, lol.
BTW, if it seems to be a bit light on the healing to get Ulthok back to full or near, I would have him down one of his potions of extra healing when he was talking about the Ale.)

Yes a really good place to start here is “Pit F(r)iend's epic guide to getting started for newbies.” That 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 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!!

This has been unpaid, non political posting!!!
