House Rules - Lookit that! I've used all the pre-set boxes now!
I'll make a more officious list later, when I remember more of these rules.
-Non-standard Cosmology: Not much of a house rule, but this is to say that the planescape will not look quite the same a presented in the DMG.
-Resurrection is Difficult: I'll let you mull over the possible implications of that for a while.
-Rolled AC: Defence is determined by applying a d20 roll to the AC bonuses, rather than the base '10'
-Spell Points: Spell casters do something that looks a mighty lot like what psions do. In my campaign, it at least applies to the prepared-casters, though the spontaneous casters may sign up if they desire (note, the only people possibly affected by this variant are myself (prepared-caster, using it) and Galen (spontaneous-caster, not using it).
-Suffer the Slings and Arrows: When shot in certain body parts, expect to suffer penalties with regards to that body part (it is no simple matter to even move with an arrow in you, not to mention falling over, but I figure we're heroes after all). Slings are more realistically martial weapons that deal umm.... let's say 1d8 bludgeoning damage. In reality, they're a bit difficult to use, and result in fairly stinging impacts.

As of currently Ray has no memory other than his name. No biggy. Nobody is carrying anything other than their cloths (for the record, everyday clothing, not sleeping clothing
I can't think of anything else to talk about, so I'll get to replying to Ray's cleverly written post (by quality, I mean I would prefer none of that), and throwing out that post for us that I promised so long ago.
PS, in case it wasn't obvious, Ray now remembers the terms 'Wraith' and 'Dread Wraith' and anything that might be immediately attached to those thoughts. Also he has a vague idea of what D&D was in his life.
There's so much conversation going on in the Q&A *drowning in sarcasm*
But that aside, I just wanted to say that I used the log to allow you to go ahead. So that I don't need to describe it anywhere, here are your positions just at the start of battle:
Ben- in the alcove before the open door, straight ahead is a skeleton, and there is one to the back right also.
Ian- is behind him, simple as that.
Galen- is behind him with his back to the other side of the hall.
Jeremy- was walking just behind Ian, but now stands to his right, as the door was to the right. He cannot see the enemies yet.
Owen- behind Jeremy, beside Galen

Artistic, ain'it? The ticks are to rectify the inability to use more than 1 space in a post

As a responsible DM, I think it is finally time to question one of my player's actions
I believe I mentioned that the skeletons guard the entrance to the room you are trying to exit, of which you do not yet have admittance to?
----R S> (the direction you're planning on going ->)
This might give you an idea if you have any idea what I'm talking about. The point is that proceeding into the room would first require you to go unnoticed through squares occupied by skeletons, then begin making hide checks without cover or concealment, forget the Move Silently.
EDIT: I think it is worth noting that 'S' includes all four undead.

As if anyone would read this, but to explain for the recent mortified activity of my campiagn, I have a few words.
University. This word indicates the UofC, the post-secondary institution I attend. kills. this present tense form of the verb meaning 'to end the life of' or along those lines. posting. this word refers to the action of creating a portion of text to be added to a forum. In this case, it is used as an adjective to describe the next word. time. individually it is the passage of the intangible force that progresses life along its course. It can also be refered to as the current hour, a tool for measuring time, or as in this case, the length of this intangible measurement required to perform an action. Combined with the previous word, we can infer that this sentence revolves around the time required or set aside to post, hence 'posting time'.
Wow... I really let that one get away from me. ^^
