(8:00:14 AM) You have just entered room "steveaccordlands."

(5:15:13 PM) WotA Axton has entered the room.

(5:16:07 PM) WotA Daere has entered the room.

WotA Daere (6:15:03 PM): Just waiting on Steve, then... should the rest of us begin discussing general ideas as to how we want to handle these bad guys when we catch up to them?

WotA Daere (6:15:16 PM): Or is "Get 'Em!" good enough? :-P

WotA Kano (6:16:11 PM): Leslie, jog my we know anything about what / who we're going after?

WotA Jarek (6:16:34 PM): shoot them. shoot them lots. isn't that always the plan? ;)

WotA Daere (6:16:43 PM): I think there's half a dozen guys, relatively heavy armor. Bad bad mens who kill peasants for no reason.

WotA Axton (6:16:50 PM): yea!!!!

WotA Jarek (6:16:53 PM): plus the chuck

WotA Jarek (6:16:57 PM): chick, that is

WotA Daere (6:17:12 PM): That plan works for me. :) I'm not the one up front doing all the uncomfortable bleeding.

WotA Dethel (6:17:16 PM): Um - did I miss the treasure summary whilest on vacation?

WotA Jarek (6:17:25 PM): no loot from last time

WotA Daere (6:17:29 PM): Is it a dwarf chick? I thought it was a sculptor.

WotA Dethel (6:17:47 PM): Didn't we get paid?

WotA Daere (6:17:49 PM): Not that chicks can't be sculptors, but I thought it was a guy.

(6:17:51 PM) AussieScum has entered the room.

WotA Kano (6:17:51 PM): ahhh, right

WotA Erilys (6:17:58 PM): ((here))

WotA Jarek (6:18:02 PM): the derf is a guy. the leader of the bandits is a woman. wizard. 'friendly' with one of the other thugs.

WotA Erilys (6:18:05 PM): ((paid by whom?))

WotA Axton (6:18:07 PM): hi mr scum

WotA Daere (6:18:16 PM): Right! I'd forgotten about her.

WotA Kano (6:18:16 PM): Hi, Steve. Hi, MR

AussieScum (6:18:20 PM): Victimages

WotA Daere (6:18:21 PM): Shoot her first. Gotcha.

WotA Erilys (6:18:29 PM): who you calling a scum?

WotA Dethel (6:18:30 PM): Evenin' Master :-D

WotA Kano (6:18:37 PM): Pretend she's an elf, Leslie.

AussieScum (6:18:46 PM): We got a couple of minutes. Scarfing dinner

WotA Kano (6:19:08 PM): Mrs. S-C-U-M was a character on a Monty Python episode. Is that Wendy?

WotA Daere (6:19:10 PM): np... gives me time to run upstairs and rescue a few of these Dulce de Leche Oreos before Rick scarfs them all...

AussieScum (6:22:06 PM): OK, when last we left our heroes...

AussieScum (6:22:27 PM): They had entered a small thorp in the middle of the Sarakian plains, as I recall

AussieScum (6:22:42 PM): The villagers told tales of the thugs you were chasing and how they did some nastiness

WotA Jarek (6:22:46 PM): we had just found out about Borka and her man Avaris and their little band.

AussieScum (6:23:06 PM): The traveller you had rescued, one Sirinus, had gone off looking for work in his new town.

WotA Jarek (6:23:10 PM): (( Borka. great name. halfbreed? nothrog? ))

AussieScum (6:23:27 PM): That would involve me reading the module.

WotA Daere (6:23:30 PM): ((Sounds Swedish. Watch out for the exploding rubber chickens!))

WotA Kano (6:23:37 PM): ((Herr mork nee, herr mork nee, herr bork bork bork!))

WotA Kano (6:23:49 PM): ((GOOMB, Daere.))

WotA Daere (6:23:50 PM): ((What's the acronym? GOOMB? :) ))

WotA Dethel (6:24:07 PM): Get out of my Brain!

WotA Daere (6:24:07 PM): GAHH! Twice in a row!

AussieScum (6:24:15 PM): No Borka is a human woman

WotA Kano (6:24:17 PM): A double!

WotA Axton (6:25:18 PM): did we have a chance to get healed up yet?

WotA Daere (6:25:29 PM): ((lol))

AussieScum (6:25:32 PM): Were you injured?

WotA Axton (6:25:45 PM): not now... others may be\

AussieScum (6:25:50 PM): The barrowgrim was the day before, was it not?

WotA Kano (6:25:56 PM): ((I'm not injured. AFAIK, we're all happy.))

AussieScum (6:26:00 PM): Let's say it was for the sake of convenience

WotA Jarek (6:26:02 PM): a couple days

AussieScum (6:26:23 PM): I believe we're mid afternoon at this point in time.

AussieScum (6:26:24 PM): So, you've just found where the bad guys went, what are you going to do now?

WotA Daere (6:26:31 PM): Go get them.

AussieScum (6:26:33 PM): (( Disneyland? ))

WotA Daere (6:26:53 PM): ((That's it, Ray? That was your big plan? "Get her?"

WotA Erilys (6:26:55 PM): ::waiting for the rest to come to the other side of town so we can go get 'em::

WotA Dethel (6:26:56 PM): Na, I was there over the weekend :-D

WotA Kano (6:27:15 PM): ((That's right, the Stealth Twins circled town.))

WotA Jarek (6:27:24 PM): Dethel went to Disneyland? Is that near the Shattered Plains?

WotA Kano (6:28:31 PM): ((Are we done in the village?))

AussieScum (6:28:38 PM): (( I believe so.... ))

WotA Jarek (6:28:43 PM): so, yeah, Steve. Unless there's anything else the townspeople want to volunteer. (( his daughter, for instance... ;) ))

WotA Daere (6:28:51 PM): ((Yeah, I think we stopped with you guys on the way out of town.))

WotA Jarek (6:28:54 PM): We're back on the road.

AussieScum (6:29:06 PM): You leave town, hot on the heels (sort of) of Borka the red-headed and her band of cutthroats.

WotA Axton (6:29:07 PM): on the road again

AussieScum (6:29:29 PM): You trudge along for about 2 days, listening to the Nothrog hum Willie Nelson tunes

WotA Erilys (6:29:43 PM): ((ewwww!))

WotA Axton (6:30:09 PM): ;-)

AussieScum (6:30:30 PM): Late afternoon, about 2 days later, as you round a corner, you find a large monstery thing.

AussieScum (6:30:34 PM): It wants to eat you.

WotA Jarek (6:30:37 PM): "Daere? Is there no way to outpace these jackasses and gain on them?"

AussieScum (6:30:54 PM): It looks beat up, and a little crispy in places.

WotA Axton (6:31:01 PM): a monstery want to eat us... that is a building

WotA Kano (6:31:05 PM): ((A Gazebo? I waste it with my crossbow!))

WotA Daere (6:31:06 PM): "Do YOU want to do this?"

AussieScum (6:31:24 PM): We'll say you engage it at a distance of 120 feet

WotA Dethel (6:31:29 PM): ((as if, perhaps it had attacked our quarry???))

AussieScum (7:54:42 PM): It looks to have been a monastery, and the ancient blue marble slabs lead directly to its entrance.

AussieScum (7:54:55 PM): The hige heavy doors seem to be the same stones as the temple, carved to resmble the flames of a restless fire.

WotA Dethel (7:54:55 PM): "Anyone have any idea what that is?"

WotA Daere (8:47:55 PM): 5 points, then.

AussieScum (8:48:13 PM): And he goes down.

WotA Kano (8:48:26 PM): ((All too easy... :-D ))

AussieScum (8:48:27 PM): Quickly, brutally, efficiently, you have entered the Temple.

WotA Jarek (8:48:28 PM): what are the extra-dark lines on the map? raised sections or balconies?

WotA Erilys (8:49:13 PM): "Makes me wonder if we killed the right guys ..." ::frowns::

WotA Jarek (8:49:18 PM): (( I'd suggest checking out the doors at the end first... but perhaps that's for Thursday. ))

AussieScum (8:49:20 PM): Let me type in the half page of boxed text

WotA Erilys (8:49:23 PM): ::then goes to L5, then L1, to listen::

AussieScum (8:49:24 PM): Some of it may be explained

WotA Axton (8:49:42 PM): watch the stairs

WotA Jarek (8:49:51 PM): "Are there ever 'wrong' guys?"

WotA Erilys (8:50:08 PM): ::nods:: "Allies."

WotA Axton (8:50:15 PM): ((they may attack O:-):-D))

WotA Erilys (8:50:19 PM): "Or potential allies."

WotA Kano (8:50:38 PM): ((Awaiting the triumphant arrival of Boxed Text Man!))

AussieScum (8:50:41 PM): (( Long BT coming, then probably calling it for tonight ))

WotA Axton (8:50:54 PM): ok

WotA Jarek (8:51:19 PM): :: shrug :: "The blood trail tells me they were neither."

AussieScum (8:51:28 PM): Torches in dark iron sconces illuminate the elaborate architecture.

AussieScum (8:51:55 PM): Like the outside of the temple, the inner walls are white stone, but here and there ou see the colorless visages of many strange animals, beasts and creatures of various types ans sizes.

AussieScum (8:52:19 PM): So wonderfully well made are these sculptures, that the weird faces seem to have been cast into the wall, rather than carved into it.

AussieScum (8:52:47 PM): Upon the high domed ceiling, golden flames seem to dance, bathing the room in an eerie orange light. On the other side of the hall, a 20 foot high wall has been erected, with two stone

AussieScum (8:53:03 PM): doors carved like dancing flames upon it.

AussieScum (8:53:12 PM): Above this wall, you notice a parapet of some kind.

AussieScum (8:53:29 PM): Two smaller stone parapets have been built upon the entrance and sidewalls, standing some 20 feet above ground.

AussieScum (8:53:38 PM): Sunlight streams through the slits aive the parapoets.

AussieScum (8:54:03 PM): The strange lighting comes from the sunlight filtering through the narrow slits, as well as the fires from the rirches set upon the walls.

AussieScum (8:54:25 PM): which reflects upon the gold and bronze architecture of the domed ceiling.

AussieScum (8:54:41 PM): The ceiling gves the impression of gazxing at a glowing ball fo fire like the sun.

AussieScum (8:55:08 PM): There are makeshift beds in this room....

AussieScum (8:55:17 PM): The wooden ladders that once led to the parapets, have long since crumbled,

AussieScum (8:55:32 PM): The 4 humans still wear the raiment of Andover, by the way

WotA Kano (8:55:49 PM): ((And phony or purloined, at that, I bet))

WotA Erilys (8:56:04 PM): ((NOW he tells us! :-P ))
OnlineHost (8:56:07 PM): AussieScum rolled 2 20-sided dice: 14 5

AussieScum (8:56:25 PM): (( they aren't dead at the moment - well, not all of them ;-) ))

AussieScum (8:56:31 PM): 3 are dead.

WotA Axton (8:56:33 PM): ((gray hawk the bodies when we get a chance))

AussieScum (8:56:37 PM): One Human, 2 Throgs are bleeding

WotA Jarek (8:57:06 PM): your point? :-D

AussieScum (8:57:41 PM): If you want to interrogate? ;-)

WotA Daere (8:57:45 PM): ((What's the line from Long Kiss Goodnight? Ah, yes... "Continue dying, over." :) ))

WotA Erilys (8:57:54 PM): ::go stabilize a human - I want to talk to him::

WotA Erilys (8:58:35 PM): "Sorry, Axton, but I can't talk to them." ::nods at the Nothrogs::

WotA Axton (8:58:46 PM): i could

AussieScum (8:58:56 PM): (( We can wrap and interrogate Thursday if you like... or do it now. ))

WotA Jarek (8:59:07 PM): (( wrappage good... ))

WotA Axton (8:59:17 PM): thru is good enough

WotA Dethel (8:59:19 PM): Wrapping's cool

WotA Daere (8:59:24 PM): ((Is getting late for me. Daere will stand watch while you guys Greyhawk and interrogate, if you like... just email the results.))

AussieScum (8:59:32 PM): Thursday: I will be unavoidably late. 9:30 start.

WotA Axton (8:59:39 PM): ok

WotA Erilys (8:59:50 PM): np here. I might get to breathe when I get home :-)

WotA Kano (8:59:52 PM): ::a high-pitched invisible voice:: "I can speak Nothrog, too!"

WotA Axton (9:00:06 PM): we know kano

AussieScum (9:00:08 PM): lootage:

WotA Erilys (9:00:13 PM): "Fine. *You* talk to them."

AussieScum (9:00:18 PM): 6 studded leather armors

AussieScum (9:00:26 PM): 2 battle axe

WotA Kano (9:00:27 PM): ((Ohh, the trouble I could get into, invisible... O:-) ))

AussieScum (9:00:36 PM): 2 short bows

WotA Jarek (9:00:38 PM): (( so much for 'men in shiny armor' ;) ))

AussieScum (9:00:49 PM): 4 more shortbows

WotA Axton (9:00:51 PM): u touch me and u will wish u hadne

AussieScum (9:00:51 PM): 4 short swords

WotA Kano (9:00:54 PM): ((Highly polished studded leather. :-D ))

AussieScum (9:00:54 PM): 120 arrows

WotA Axton (9:00:56 PM): hadnt that is

WotA Daere (9:01:01 PM): ((Hey, there's a lot more temple to explore...))

WotA Kano (9:01:09 PM): ::giggle:: "Ick."

AussieScum (9:01:22 PM): OK, Thursday we get into interrogations and temple explorations.

WotA Jarek (9:01:25 PM): (( I suppose there could be more fake guards elsewhere... ))

WotA Axton (9:01:33 PM): sounds good to me

AussieScum (9:01:40 PM): Start thinking about level 3 options. You may not get there next session, but if not, probably the session after.

AussieScum (9:02:19 PM): There's like 20 modules.

AussieScum (9:02:24 PM): Each one is a level, prettu much

AussieScum (9:02:32 PM): I'll get you some extras here and there in case anyone wants to craft.

AussieScum (9:10:30 PM): Good session. I liked your entry solution. That could have been bad for you

WotA Erilys (9:10:59 PM): You mean across the killing fields? Yeah. :-)

WotA Jarek (9:11:01 PM): was there anyone covering the arrowslits?

AussieScum (9:11:09 PM): The two throgs were loosely watching it.

AussieScum (9:11:19 PM): So had you been spotted, the place went on alert.

AussieScum (9:11:23 PM): Making it all that much harder.

AussieScum (9:11:33 PM): But you killed all 6 before they could utter a peep.

WotA Jarek (9:11:33 PM): more important was the bumrush while they were flatfooted.

WotA Jarek (9:11:40 PM): exactly

AussieScum (9:11:48 PM): Advantage: You.

WotA Jarek (9:12:16 PM): this group definitely has good damage output, when the dice agree with us.

WotA Jarek (9:12:21 PM): even a little.

AussieScum (9:12:34 PM): Axton will do a metric shit ton.

AussieScum (9:12:41 PM): But, he'll pay for that in lower AC.

AussieScum (9:13:17 PM): 87 cards into the EE update now, BTW

AussieScum (9:13:38 PM): Which is, effectively, all the actions.

WotA Jarek (9:13:47 PM): thing is - it's not just one guy. he's backed up by me (and I can do just about as much, though I use weapons with smaller dice). And Eirlys with two weapons hitting for sneak dmg. And two good archers.

WotA Jarek (9:14:07 PM): one of whom gets sneak dmg too

WotA Jarek (9:14:45 PM): And eventually, we're all going to be delaying for Kano's init so he can light 'em up.

WotA Jarek (9:14:47 PM): :)

WotA Erilys (9:15:07 PM): Yup.

WotA Erilys (9:15:23 PM): A few more hp would be nice here, though :-)

AussieScum (9:15:50 PM): It'll be a grand old time as we level up some.

AussieScum (9:15:59 PM): Wait till the end when you get to fight the Medusans. That will be fun

WotA Jarek (9:16:52 PM): dunno whether I should Woot or Heh.

WotA Jarek (9:17:04 PM): It's hard to picture 20th level from 2nd

WotA Erilys (9:17:57 PM): Yes, it is. Especially as PCs evolve.

WotA Jarek (9:19:19 PM): totally.

WotA Jarek (9:19:33 PM): dude. 8-)

WotA Jarek (9:19:45 PM): anyway, the bed is calling. collect, even.

WotA Erilys (9:20:16 PM): Yeah, I want to go get warm ...

WotA Erilys (9:20:18 PM): 'night!
