Tabris has connected.

Garrion: howdy

Tabris: Yo

Sefiros has connected.

Taragnor has connected.

Garrion: hey sef… i added the -5 mod to your ST… tersted it out and it works if you just put mods in with the stat score as x-a-b-c

Sefiros: no idea what you mean about mods and x-a-b-c

Garrion: it parses the total correctly and modifies damage and encumbrance based on new value

Sefiros: but if you did it for me, thats all i need to know

Garrion: x is original; score… a, b, c are any mods you note

Tabris: He’s speaking an archaic and complex language known as Algebra

Sefiros: oh ok you mean on the char sheet output

Sefiros: like it says ST 16-5

Garrion: you can track any number of mods to a stat

Cedric has connected.

Sefiros: well i knew that, i just didnt know what exactly he was referancning

Sefiros: on the char sheet

Garrion: correrct… but when you roll it is will use the correct total value

Sefiros: or if he meant some macro someplace

Tabris: I was proud of myself today, I was actually able to use something I learned in math class to do something at work

Tabris: System of equations ftw

Sefiros: ok well if its already ready to go, thats all i need to know

Sefiros: i leave the math to Tab, T and sachi :-p

Sefiros: its my worst area of knowledge

Sefiros: i can never remember jack shit

Sefiros: its why im an amateur astronomer and not a professional one

Garrion: the only thing you may want to do is just make a note on your token were that -5 mod comes from in case you forget

Sefiros: math > me

Tabris: lol

Tabris: Yeah orbital physics is a little about my pay grade too

Tabris: I can figure out how to recharge a coolant system with the correct concentration of propylene glycol though

Sefiros: technically its “orbital mechanics” i believe :-p

Sefiros: speaking of which, the Dawn probe is almost to one of the only unphotographed planets in the solar system

Sefiros: Ceres, a dwarf planet in the asteroid belt

Sefiros: all we had before was basically a few pixels from hubble

Sefiros: about to go into orbit soon

Tabris: Oh awesome

Tabris: Will have to look for that whenever they post it

Sefiros: and new horizons will reach pluto soon too

Sefiros: in a month or so

Tabris: Yeah that’s gonna be cool too

Sefiros: so will get first images of pluto as well

Sefiros: ceres is the only object in the asteroid belt that has reached hydrostatic equilibrium (ie its big enough to be round like a planet)

Sefiros: its basically like a small moon size wise

Sefiros: what they now call “dwarf planets” what plut was demoted to

Tabris: Yeah in the original Gundam timeline they drag it into Earth orbit and rename it Luna 2

Tabris: And use it as a space base

Sefiros: ceres?

Tabris: Yeah

Sefiros: ah

Sefiros: yeah its a good rock for alot of reasons

Sefiros: has water/ice

Sefiros: low gravity, but enough

Sefiros: is easier technically to land on than mars

Sefiros: and is in a good spot at the edge of the inner solar system

Tabris: Oh, wait, my mistake

Tabris: They actually used Juno

Sefiros: so it’ll prolly be pretty important for future space flight

Tabris: Which is another huge ass asteroid

Sefiros: thats an asteroid of jupiter i believe

Sefiros: captured asteroid/moon if i recall

Tabris: Nah it’s a main belt asteroid according to Wiki

Sefiros: is it? ok im prolly thinking 3 Juno then

Tabris: That’s what this is called

Sefiros: theres another one with juno in its designation that orbits jupiter i think

Sefiros: ok yeah you’re right

Sefiros: ok no juno 3 is the same object

Sefiros: i figured it was one of jupiters captured asteroids since juno was his wife

Tristan has connected.

Tabris: Yeah you’d think they’d make that association

Sefiros: actually i read an article the other day about some new stuff about the kuiper belt/oort cloud

Tabris: As I recall though Jupiter’s moons are named after his illicit love affairs

Sefiros: new orbital models indicate there are likely 2 extra planets in the solar system we havent discovered yet

Sefiros: due to the pertubations in the outer solar system

Tabris: Yeah I think I remember something about that

Sefiros: exact mass isnt known, but theyre both greater than earth mass which is interesting

Tabris: But yeah in Gundam they lasso Juno and haul it into Earth orbit to mine it for resources to build the space colonies

Garrion: ok, we all here.. except sachi?

Tabris: Then they use the hollowed out shell as a space base

Sefiros: yeah alot of em are, tho some captured asteroids have scattered brained naming conventions

Tristan: it’s cool that people were finding planets back in the day with simple telescopes. pretty amazing

Sefiros: ie in regards to naming conventions of Jupiters moons

Sefiros: all the most recently disocvered objects in the 20th, and 21st centuries have less consistent naming standards

Tabris: Yeah I hate how they name shit with random strings of numbers and letters

Garrion: when we left off the group has followed a path around to a big endless pit…. Loryc has been exploring the manor….

Sefiros: well i was mostly talking about mixing mythologies and also naming them after people

Sefiros: the strings and numbers is more for catalog purposes

Sefiros: one you know what they stand for, you’d get it

Tabris: Ahh, I see

Sefiros: yeah its not just random numbers

Sefiros: its for classifications

Cedric: ( can Urso catch up ?)

Tabris: Yeah we hauled you along and used you as our mobile lighthouse

Garrion: urso is with them.. he was just the light holder

Urso: ( he leading, or we doing sneaky?)

Garrion: we’ll head away from Loryc for a bit and return the spotlight to the group in the knot

Tabris: Not really any sneaking

Garrion: repeat description for urso….

Sachi has connected.

Garrion: A rickety-looking wooden set of curved stairs, supported by creaking ropes above and a lattice of wooden boards below, passes like a bridge through the center of a circular shaft. No floor is visible below, and no ceiling above. An opening in the far wall beckons about 30 feet below the point where the stairs curve.

Sachi: Hihi~

Tabris: Osu~

Garrion: howdy.. just getting started

Garrion: btw, Urso.. last session you were all attacked by some sort of shadow creatures

Urso: hey

Urso: (ya, I heard)

Garrion: a little tougher than the houd

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Zindal still showed them what’s what though

Urso: “we continue forward then?”

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) shrugs

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Is there any other option?”

  • Urso continues forward slowly.

Sefiros: Hey Sachi

  • Melty hovers near Mina’s head.

Garrion: as you glance down in the pit you see no bottom within your light range.. however…..

Urso: “how Mayor get to his stuff in vault if he have to go thru all this stuff?”

Garrion: looking down you see a shadowed indention… looks like it could be another passage….

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “He probably has a map. Or memorized the route.”

Garrion: this is not at eye level so ignore the “vision” entering the hall

Urso: “there another passage there, no floor… fly lady want to go check?”

Melty: “Maybe he gets mind-slaves to do it.”

Sefiros: “Mind slaves?”

Taragnor: (The mayor never actually went into the vault btw)

Mina: “Hmm.”

Taragnor: (I would have fileld you guys in, apparently someone else went in for him, but I ran out of mind reading questions before I coudl ask that)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (oh, lol)

Garrion: give me a perc Urso… -3

Taragnor: (But I’d have briefed you on the fact that he was apparently scared of it and never went inside)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Lovely)

Urso: A Per check sent to GM.

HIDDEN ROLL

←rolls Per and gets 7 vs. Skill (10 with a modifier of 0)

Urso SUCCEEDS by 3

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Wonder if that was the guy we ran into when we came in)

Tristan: (i’m goinging to take a moment and see if I can hear anything sneaking up on us)

Taragnor: (Heh, yeah you can kinda assume anything that I found out on the website IC stuff I’d let you in on. Since I got no reason to keep secrets, I ain’t Taesian :P )

Garrion: as you glance down the hall you see a dim shadow enter your light

  • Urso readies his shield and axe, “something comes”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol

Melty: “Again?”

Tristan (Stan): (drawing bow)

Urso: ( which hall, one south or west?")

Garrion: you hear nothing.. but a very faint murmering

Garrion: the one south

Urso: (did the shadows make noise?)

Garrion: no

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) was appearing semi-bored, but he perks up at the mention of another encounter

Urso: (how far away?)

Garrion: the murmuring has been constant in here

Mina: “Whatever it is, I’d wager, it’s soon to have one less eye.”

  • Mina comments to Melty.

Melty: “Or one less spleen.”

Garrion: I’ll give you all a round of actions

Urso: (how far away?)

Mina: “Oh? Is that your prefered way of handling people? De-spleeing them?”

Garrion: you should see it now

Mina: “I would have presumed you liked to melt them in huge vats of acid.”

Melty: “Nah, I like to switch it up now and then. And spleen rolls off the tongue so nice…”

Tristan (Stan): (drawing bow and normal arrow and staying in Urso’s light)

  • Urso moves forward, not wanting to fight on a narrow bridge.

Garrion: Zindal moves up some…..

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) moves up next to Urso and tries to get a look at whatever it is he’s spotted

Mina: "I see. "

Mina: “Why do they call you Melty then?”

Urso: ( so we need to ready to hit thier hands? the shadows?)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Yup)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Though they’re both minus a hand I think, so hopefully they’ve learned their lesson and will leave us the hell alone)

Urso: (figure is common knowledge for us now, I just wasn’t here last time)

Garrion: correct

Garrion: you would have seen the method

  • Mina seems to disregard the danger, as she casually bats her lashes as she props up against a wall, her hands resting against the butt of her sword as it stands tip in the floor.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Yeah I mean you stood there and watched Zindal and Mina fight them)

Melty: “It’s short for Melton. As in… My blistering vengeance shall render the devil-loving humans unto slag.”

Tristan (Stan): (thinking "this lady is crazy)

Mina: “Well, you certainly have a way with words.”

Garrion: ok, mina looks toward the others and relaxes…..

Mina: “Normal people don’t pick up such verbage unless they’re well educated.”

Garrion: melty?

  • Mina says in a discerning tone.
  • Melty puffs out her chest and looks proud… And flies toward the others to see what she can see.

Urso: (you guys moving up with urso?)

Melty: “This asshole again?”

Garrion: melty.. as you enter this pit you detect an increased loft again like you did before.. the gravity here is not as high

Melty: “Oooo, fun!”

  • Mina throws her sword over her shoulder and decides to see what the fuss is about.

Mina: “More groping freaks?”

Garrion: ok, that was your round of actions…. you all move up focusing on urso and the creature he spotted

  • Mina asks as she stands peering over Zindal’s shoulder.

Melty: “It might be the same one for all I know. Wasn’t there another one?”

  • Melty casts her gaze about the group’s flanks.

Garrion: as you enter the room you all notice a but of a sping in your step as you cross the bridge

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Can I see the shadow?)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): A Per check sent to GM.

Garrion: ok, you all have a round of actions

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Assuming I can see it now, lol

Mina: use another adjective :-p

Garrion: yes, now you can

Tristan (Stan): and i’ll shoot that arrow if I can

Tristan (Stan): (not sure if fire will hurt it or not)

Garrion: hahah, htqat is the idea

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) readies his sword and keeps his eye on the shadow, prepared to strike it if it tries to touch him again

Melty: Into the Void was also a REALLY trippy movie

Garrion: 39

Tristan (Stan): igoing for the torso

Mina: theres an X-men classic called “Into the Void” that was one of my fav old school x-men issues

Tristan (Stan): so, not sure if that’s giong to hurt it or not but it’s normal arrow damage plus 1d fire damage

Garrion: so it is a magic arrow granting fore damage?

Mina: I’ll just ready a sword swing if I see one solidify like their hands did earlier

Tristan (Stan): yes, I have 2 of them

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah, sounds like it’s an enchanted fire arrow

Tristan (Stan): magic 1d

Tristan (Stan): yup

Tristan (Stan): 1d normal damage and 1d fire

Zindal (aka Ladzin): As opposed to a mundane arrow with an oil soaked rag on the end

Tristan (Stan): correct, it’s magic

Shadow 2: tries to dodge and rolls a 11 with effective skill 10

Shadow 2 FAILS by 1

Garrion: the arrow passes through it… you can not tell if it was hurt or not but it does writhe a bit

  • Urso moves to follow the shadow.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “There were two, keep an eye out for the other one…”

Tristan (Stan): ok, that whole hoping for “bursting into flame” did not work =)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I’m readied to strike the one I can see if it tries to touch me

Garrion: ok, and mina and melty left

Mina: im readying an attack if i can see one solidify

Melty: (aaaa sorry people keep messaging me, checking something on my sheet rq)

Garrion: Melty.. you just catch a glimpse of the second one coming down the other hall to your flank and behind the others.. you see it just as it moves in to grasp mina….. you try to get out a warning but just aren’t in time

Melty: Ooo, I learned something neat~

Melty: Well actually I didn’t

Melty: I don’t think these are vaporous

Garrion: no, insubstantial

Garrion: thaT IS GURPS VERSION OF INCORPOREAL

Mina: “Zindal, not now! Ack! What the fuck!”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol

Mina: “Behind us!”

Mina: do i need to put any mods to my parry or can i ever parry since its from behind?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “I told you to watch for it!”

Melty: I bet they sense life, so distracting them with illusions probably won’t work ; ;

Garrion: damn they like her groin

Mina: “You’re suppose to be my protector, not the other way around! So much for chivalry!”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Like get the fuck away from these things

Mina: “It went for my hot box!”

Mina: (yeah i agree with tab, speed blitz)

Tristan (Stan): lol

Tristan (Stan): hot box

  • Melty flies along the bridge, trying to keep her distance from the shades… There’s really not much she can do right now.

Mina: “What’s with these things and cunts!”

Mina: “They’re not just shadows, but perv shadows!”

Melty: Actually

Melty: What’s that place to the west?

Melty: Can I actually see there?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): It’s some passage in the shaft, lower elevation than where we’re standing

Zindal (aka Ladzin): We can’t get to it but you can fly down there

Garrion: You see what look slike it could be a indention in the side of the pit down a bit below you

Garrion: about 30 ft down

Melty: Yeah, I’ll fly over there and see if I can find a way to let the walking ones in.

Tristan (Stan): flying sure is handy

Mina: “Guard your lady bits, Melty.” she recommends, as she sees the pixie flying in retreat

Melty: “Yo, my magic doesn’t exactly work on these… So I’m gonna see if I can find you guys a route past ’em!”

Mina: “Or buy a chastity belt.”

Garrion: ignore the vision in the hall, at this angle it just look slike a shadowy indention

Mina: “The one time we need some spellslinging wizard, and he isn’t here! Remind me to throttle him if we live.”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Agreed.”

Melty: “I don’t think his would work either.”

Garrion: o, your move is 12 yards…. plenty of move to cover 30 ft descent

Melty: Yesh~

Mina: “Yeah well he has balls, so he stands a better chance than you.”

Melty: “Hey, what the fuck?!”

  • Melty seems to have missed the joke

Garrion: Melty.. you see that this is a tunnel leading to another artea.. you see a door ahead of you

Mina: "And I mean literally, not proverbially.

Melty: “NO!”

Melty: “Another of these accursed constructs!”

Garrion: oh hell, i didn’t vision block the rooms.. oh well

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Minor oversight

Melty: (Ack, I thought it was a bi-level room or something)

Garrion: ok, fixed

Garrion: now… the shadow on the brige that did not attack just flyes circles around the bridge.. over/under flying around you

Cedric is disconnected.

Cedric has connected.

Garrion: yoiu try to folow its dizzying course

Garrion: you all are up for anopther round of action

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Get off this bridge, it’s a death trap.”

Mina: “Agreed!”

Garrion: Melty told you about the tunnel?

  • Cedric follows Zindal.
  • Urso follows Zindal.

Tristan (Stan): (holding my action with a normal arrow for one of them to attack)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): No she just said something about finding a way around and flew off

Melty: Oh nobody else saw it?

Mina: (i have no idea if we’re in init or what the order is here)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I missed it if you said something else

Mina: (its why i havent moved my token)

Mina: (But im gonna follow Zindal if i can move)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Oh you mean the door

Garrion: oh, Tristan.. you have torch.. what you do with it when using bow?

Melty: “Hey! Oh shit, they’re running away…”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I thought you had some way of opening doors? lol

Mina: (blowing them up likely? lol)

Melty: (I do, but I don’t exactly want to get hopelessly lost in here)

Melty: (If you’re all runnin’

Tristan (Stan): dropped it and staying in urso’s light

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Yeah fuck this shit, shadows suck without magic weapons)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Or a cleric)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Or both)

Garrion: ok, 50% chance of falling off the bridge…. 26

Garrion: it falls off when you drop it.. probably good thing since bridge is wood and ropwe

Melty: (That would have been hilarious)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol

Tristan (Stan): it would suck to get out of here blind

Melty: (Oh fuck, you know what else? I don’t have a light source, I’m definitely gonna go follow them instead of exploring down here)

Taragnor: lol. well hopefully you’d be able to put out the fire before it did any permanent damage.

Garrion: you have darkvision

Garrion: you don;t need light

Melty: I do?

Taragnor: yeah, I gave you DV

Taragnor: ANd you’re maintinng it for free.

Tristan (Stan): (oh, that’ scool then)

Melty: Ohhhh

Garrion: that why you can see the shadows better than the rest

Taragnor: (keep in mind you do get a -1 penalty to cast further spelsl)

Taragnor: Since you’re maintaining the spell, not me

Melty: I COMPLETELY forgot about that

Melty: Wait, the door is like in this wall right?

Garrion: melty proceeds into the tunnel and sees a hal with sets of doors

Melty: or

Melty: Was it the one at the end of the hall you meant

Mina: i should actually be between zindal and urso

Mina: unless we’re going in some unseen order

Garrion: we not in init.. just take your turn as you see fit’

Melty: “Now, this looks like a place where a human might keep their stuff…”

Mina: just saying im shadowing zindal

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Heh, yeah, no init so we’re just moving around haphazardly

Garrion: one action per round of course

Garrion: mina runs with the others.. and the light

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (You might want to get the fuck out of there Tristan, lol)

Tristan (Stan): ok, i’m beside two shadows back here…. not liking that

  • Urso readies to hit any shadow that comes to attack him.

Garrion: tristan…. had wait action… you cancelling that?

Tristan (Stan): yeah, i’m getting out of here

  • Melty doesn’t have to worry about servants or guards spotting her (so she thinks), so instead of using her magic she tries to just find a doorknob and open it with her incredible pixie strength.

Garrion: the shadows seems to wait…. in the void pit.. thety do not pursue

Tristan (Stan): are they funnling us into a trap?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Let’s go find out!

Taragnor: What are the odds that one of them is the shadow of an experienced strategist?

Garrion: ok, they just fly around.. you catch faint glimpses. almost like light casting a shadow on the wall

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Tch… Annoying creatures.”

Garrion: you are up for a round

Tristan (Stan): “ok wizard, shouldn’t you blast them or something?”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Hopefully our tiny friend finds something worthwhile down there.”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Or was she still going with us? lol)

Garrion: no, melty is not with you

Garrion: all you know is she was left behind

Garrion: you have no means of communication unless you yell

Zindal (aka Ladzin): So they’re staying in the shaft and not trying to come after us?

Garrion: so it seems

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) steps back onto the rope bridge with his sword readied and sees what happens
  • Melty braces her feet against the wall and pulls on the door with all her might!

Urso: ( does the air movements of the shaft seem to effect them?)

Garrion: the door is locked

Garrion: there is no air.. the gravity is differnt

Garrion: i mean breeze

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Localized gravitic anomaly

Melty: “Locked! This must be important!”

Garrion: brb, gotta close stove damper

Melty: Melty rolls 3d6 and gets 9 vs. Skill (15 with a modifier of 0)

Melty SUCCEEDS by 6

Melty: Melty rolls 3d6 and gets 8 vs. Skill (12 with a modifier of 0)

Melty SUCCEEDS by 4

Garrion: back

Melty: “But… My pals are on the run from ghost men… This can wait… For a little bit…”

Melty: (those were for Kleptomania and Curiosity, respectively)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “We haven’t run that far.”

Garrion: what were those rolls melty?

Taragnor: lol well the fact that you’re here toi rob the vault should hopefully negate the klepto part.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah being a klepto is kind of the entire point

Garrion: oh haha

Mina: self control for her disads

Mina: klepto and curiousity she said

Taragnor: hopefulyl that satiates her urge to steal.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I step back onto the bridge over the shaft with my sword readied to attack one of them if they try to touch me

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Seeing what happens

Garrion: you head south melrty and pass tweo other halls

Mina: “Try burning them”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Unlike some members of our ragtag band, I am unable to produce fire on demand.”

Garrion: ok, zindal waits…

Mina: “I mean anyone, with a torch.”

Melty: (Are these torches on the walls here?)

Garrion: Tristan.. you keep getting jostled back and forth by people running to and fro

Garrion: no, there are no lit torches

Garrion: ignore the graphic

Melty: Hehe~

Melty: kk~

Garrion: just unlit torches

Tristan (Stan): ok, i’m staying near the middle of the bridge and shoudering my bow and drawing my sword. slowley and surely

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Wait I thought you booked it south with the rest of us?)

Garrion: ok that is two actions

Garrion: you can should er bow this action

Garrion: the rest of you turn around to follow Zindal’s lead?

Taragnor: well could probably shoulder the boiw and try to quickdraw the sword mayb.e I dunno how that works

Tristan (Stan): ok sure

Garrion: yes, that you can do

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Heh, well I’m standing at the edge of the shaft, I’m just barely over it

Taragnor: since quickdraw is free

Zindal (aka Ladzin): So you’re going to have to go dangle yourselves out there as bait if you want to move in front of me

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I’m trying to test the theory that they won’t leave the shaft basically

Garrion: the shadows swarm around you….. but do not yet manifest…..

Melty: (blehhhh I have to run a super fast errand x.x one of the things people kept messaging me about)

Mina: brb cat duty, im gonna read a sword attack if one draws to melee

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) smirks

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “I see. So this shaft is your arena.”

Garrion: ok, next round

Taragnor: heh Sachi is going to get drugs.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol

Melty: (But my game plan is to investigate this hall and if there’s no sign of a way into the area where the others are, to go back west and then south and then east again, toward the other shaft that I don’t know where it’s gonna connect to)

Melty: (shh!)

Melty: (But that I can reasonably assume might go back to that area)

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) takes a step back to the edge of the shaft, trying to minimize the flanking advantage of the two shadows

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Staying readied to attack one if they try to touch me

Garrion: Zindal and Tristan edge side by side on the walkway

Urso: (heh, don’t ya think should be urso doing that ?)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Go for the hand as they try to grab you.”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (lol well if you want to pick Tristan up and toss him behind you be my guest)

Tristan (Stan): “i’m going to avoid the hand as it tries to grab me”

Garrion: you all just stay grouped and wait?

Garrion: Melty… you proceed down one of the side tunnels…..

Garrion: you travel 2 yars and you see that the tunnel branced north and south but it seems like a dead end.. at least from this vantage point

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Sachi is afk

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Or about to be anyway

Melty: You caught me on the way out~

Melty: I’ll go back south here

Garrion: you have 10 yards move left

Garrion: The tunnel turns here…..

Melty: Can’t quiiiite see the end…

Melty: Anyway I’ll brb as fast as I can! I’m really sorry ; ; It’s bad timing on my part

Mina: back

Taragnor: all her pothead friends are pressuring her to go on a drug run. It’s her turn apaprentlyt.

Mina: 12 cats…..I’m a cat lady shakes head

Mina: I cant bring myself to haul em off to the animal shelter, since its a death sentence

Garrion: they go.. they still sweirl about you in a dizzying flight….. apparently not wishing to get sliced again… they edge closer and seem eager to feed on your life force.. cicling in for the kill like sharks

Mina: leave her alone T

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) feints at one of them with his sword, seeing if it reacts

Tristan (Stan): (this is where it sucks being a one trick poney)

Mina: we dont nag you about whores and gambling :-p

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Will stay readied to stab one if it tries to grab me

Tristan (Stan): (same here for the ready vs attack)

Taragnor: hehe. well you would if I left midsession to do either :P

Mina: whatever

Garrion: ok, another round… you still standing ground… waiting for Melty?

Mina: she said earleir she’d have to go

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Well you have the ability to schedule your illegal vices around gaming time, apparently she doesn’t have that flexibility =P

Mina: so

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Anyway yeah I’m basically just standing here and kinda daring the shadows to try to attack me again while we wait for Melty to get back

Mina: yeah 2 dollar whores are ready anytime, anywhere :-p

Tristan (Stan): i have two dollars

Taragnor: Hey, gambling isn’t illegal.

Garrion: Melty moves down the tunnel…..

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Massage parlor whores are though, lol

Mina: it depends on location i suppose

Mina: for either

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Heh, the only place prostitution is legal is Nevada, outside of Vegas

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Sachi’s habit is legal in more places than yours =P

Garrion: the rest of you wait?

Garrion: then they go…..

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah, bring it

Garrion: they circle in closer and closer….

Tristan (Stan): (holding for the perfect op)

Garrion: They seem to sense your preparedness and wait as the cirlce around you….

Tristan (Stan): “where is that lighting bolt short stack?”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “What’s wrong? Nervous?”

Garrion: (Maybe try something to rouse them to action.. act like you are not ready?

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) seems perfectly calm… almost eager, even

Tristan (Stan): “I got to take a leak”

Mina: tries to parry and rolls a 15 with effective skill 15

Mina SUCCEEDS by 0

Urso: ( can defense?)

Garrion: Both Miona and Urso feel the cold grip of death enter their bodies from behind….

Mina: i dunno we did in the other battle, aint sure

Mina: rolled it anyways

Garrion: no, attacks from the rear do not get defense…..

Mina: ah ok

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah that’s going to hurt

Garrion: you are essentially flat footed

Shadow 3: The Touch inflicts 1 raw damage.

Mina: yeah attacks to the “rear” alright

Garrion: Mina gets drained 1 more ST

Mina: apply that for me please, i gotta hit the john brb

Shadow 3: The Touch inflicts 3 raw damage.

Garrion: Urso gets drained for 3

Urso: (combat reflexes do anything?)

Garrion: not against blind attacks

Urso: is reduced 3 HP, and now has 25 HP.

Garrion: always guard your rear and flanks in GURPS

Zindal (aka Ladzin): It isn’t HP damage

Zindal (aka Ladzin): It’s Str damage

Urso: oh really?

Garrion: get that HP back urso.. this is ST damage

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yes

Zindal (aka Ladzin): They’re Shadows

Urso: regains 3 HP, and now has 28 HP.

Taragnor: well at least Urso has a tonf o ST.

Urso: how do str damage?

Mina: well to be honest, i actually forgot about even setting facing on my tokens, or id prolly have done it, doh

Garrion: i applied it for you

Urso: ( init now?)

Garrion: ok, now you are sandwiched… your turn to act

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Well, these things are insubstantial, so I’m just going to run through them

Garrion: if you want inits we can do that.. ui’m fine going as we are in a you/them fashoin

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “You’re on your own, little one! Mind the darkness!”

  • Urso turns around with a curse and readies to attack the next one that attacks him.

Tristan (Stan): “this is getting us no where fast”

Garrion: Melty flies….

Mina: (that to me, or melty Tab?)

Urso: ( we running?)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (To Melty)

Garrion: Tab ran

Tristan (Stan): (just outloud)

Tristan (Stan): oh

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Yes, get the fuck out)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Who knows how many more of these things there are)

Garrion: Tab.. you hear melty yelling.. in her tiny little voice

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (We have no magic weapons and no way to heal Str damage, if they keep flanking us then they’re going to sap us down)

Garrion: you do not see her but you hear her to the south

Garrion: I mean Zindal

  • Urso will follow zindal then, after he turns he moves after him.

Garrion: Dol;t forget your spacing… tokens are pretty true to actual space.. not like in d20 where they represent a larger space

Tristan (Stan): i’m not getting sandwhiched between these things, i’m following along

Garrion: overlapping means you are “on” them as in a grapple or such

Mina: Mina is gonna unload some attacks on one of these shadows out of frustation (and also an attempt to see if our weapons are doing anything to them at all)

Tristan (Stan): (we need some magic weapons huh)

Mina: I will buy some time for the others I reckon to by my swinging, while they flee, and hopefully try and catch up with my 12 speed

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Yeah, need magic for shit like this)

Urso: ( yup, we do )

Tristan (Stan): (I thought we had a wizard with us….)

Tristan (Stan): (just kidding, the wizard is bad ass)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (lol, both of them apparently don’t have anything good for affecting insubstantial)

Tristan (Stan): (well, I don’t either so I can’t judge. my amazing fire arrow was not so amazing)

Garrion: well well insubstantial and magic wortk a bit different in GURPS.. you need something with the specific ability “Affects Insubstantial”

Garrion: it is an enhancement you can add to magic very easy.. for weapos a bit harder

Zindal (aka Ladzin): We can figure it out later

Zindal (aka Ladzin): For now just get the hell out

Tristan (Stan): (yup)

Tristan (Stan): (i’m moving if I can)

Mina: “Go elfling, I’ll buy you some time.”

Garrion: but on the flip side also making it where they can’t just attack you either if they are insubstantial

Tristan (Stan): (i’m guessing i’m fucked where I am)

Tristan (Stan): i’m blocked in

Zindal (aka Ladzin): They’re insubstantial

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Just run through them

Tristan (Stan): ok that works

Garrion: you can go through them.. they are insubstantuial now

Tristan (Stan): i guess I can’t run through urso

Garrion: You feel a but of a chill.. like death as you do but not harmful

Garrion: Well if you have move to pass by you can, but you can not stop in his space

Garrion: or Zindal’s

Tristan (Stan): nah, I’m being a wuss but no more a wuss than anyone else

Garrion: ok, mina attacked?

Tristan (Stan): (funny if I pushed urso and zindal off the bridge)

Mina: yeah she’s gonna swing away to try and occupy em so the group can get some distance before she flees herself

Garrion: this is a tunnel here.. no pit

Tristan (Stan): ok, no pitt is good

Tristan (Stan): pit

Garrion: ok, as you all run south you see mely ahead of you

Mina: “Absorb this!” she yells swinging angrily

Garrion: Mina attacks and hwer sword would have landed but passes hamlessly through the form

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Well that’s odd…”

Garrion: Having let her temper get the better of her the shadows not see their opportunity to strike…..

Tristan (Stan): (waiting for one to become material and hit it from behind)

Tristan (Stan): (not sure if I can go this turn or not, I think I moved)

Garrion: oh you ran backwards?

Tristan (Stan): no, turned

Garrion: ok, you need to reserve at least a yard of move to do a full turn around…. (they is less penalty than the real ruyles….

Garrion: i think you had move left right

Tristan (Stan): I think so, it’s very short distance

Garrion: ok

Garrion: well they do not see Tristan ready for them.. they manifest and attack Mina

Tristan (Stan): so I can attack?

Mina SUCCEEDS by 3

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Damn

Mina: tries to parry and rolls a 10 with effective skill 15

Mina SUCCEEDS by 5

Tristan (Stan): lol

Urso: nice, should just go full defense and keep em distracted for a bit

Garrion: yo can only parry once

Garrion: and take penalty after

Taragnor: guys, I realize that if Mina drops you’ll have one less share to split the treasure but… you really might want her alive for alter :P

Mina: apply the penalty then, i dont know what it is

Tristan (Stan): hmmm… not sure if I had my latest character uploaded… not seeing my broadsword on my weapons…

Garrion: but can dodge all you want

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Heh, well she’s the one who chose to stay and let the shadows beat on her

Zindal (aka Ladzin): You can do multiple parry if you have Weapon Master I think

Tristan (Stan): picks up a trusty Thrusting Broadsword.

Shadow 3:

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I know there’s a way Zindal can do it

Mina: i do

Mina: have weapon master

Garrion: yes, but at progressive penalty

Urso: (think you can parrry twice if you full defense, no?)

Taragnor: think you can always multiparry it’s just at a disadvantage wtih each one.

Taragnor: It’s like -4 per extra parry or something

Taragnor: So there’s diminshing returns. I think fencing wepaons are only -2

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah

Mina: im trying to keep them busy so yall can flee, im pretty fast so i was intending to catch up to the slower members

Zindal (aka Ladzin): It’s -2 for each additional parry

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol just run man

Shadow 2:
←Attacks Mina with a Touch
in the Groin

0 for Groin, 4 for maneuver, 0 shock, 0 attacker’s posture, 0 miscMod, 0 accMod

Tristan (Stan): (i’m not leaving a lady behind… plus I don’t know she’s super quick)

Mina: yeah well i will on my next turn

Mina: was trying to give you a head start

Mina: without em up in your grill

Garrion: ok, you parry one….. defend 2 more times

Tristan (Stan): (should have said that)

Mina: with -2 to each, or -2, then -4?

Garrion: 2

Shadow 3: My hand is down to 2 HPs and overall I’m down to 8 HPs.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): -2, -4, -6, etc

Mina: tries to parry and rolls a 11 with effective skill 13

Mina SUCCEEDS by 2

Mina: tries to parry and rolls a 14 with effective skill 11

Mina FAILS by 3

Garrion: each parry is at -4

Garrion: progressive

Garrion: so both those would fail

Mina: i applied the penalty to em

Garrion: you would have been better off dodging rather than a 3rd parry at -8?

Mina: someone just told me it was -2 progressive

Zindal (aka Ladzin): He has Weapon Master, G

Zindal (aka Ladzin): It’s only -2

Zindal (aka Ladzin): It’s half the penalty because he has the advantage

Mina: yeah thats what i applied, -2, then -4

Garrion: i thought that was only with fencing weapon?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): No

Garrion: ok

Zindal (aka Ladzin): It’s any weapon

Garrion: my bad

Zindal (aka Ladzin): If you do have a fencing weapon though you get both benefits

Zindal (aka Ladzin): And it’s only -1 per iteration

Mina: so i failed one still either way

Garrion: then 1 fail

Garrion: so fisrst the normal hit

Shadow 3: The Touch inflicts 1 raw damage.

Garrion: and then the crit

Shadow 3: Normal damage only.

Shadow 3: The Touch inflicts 3 raw damage.

Melty: \-orz

Melty: I’m sorry!

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Hehe, it’s okay, you didn’t miss too much

Garrion: or less i mean.. -10 total so just 6 ST

Tristan (Stan): hope your not wearing platemail

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol damn

Mina: leather

Mina: time to bug out

Taragnor: well she’s probably got major encumbrance now anyway. lol, fortunately she doens’t rely on dodging.

Garrion: Your turn….. Melty yells out…. These tunnels down here have doorsm but I could not open the!’

Melty: o.o

Tristan (Stan): (i’m attacking number 4)

Mina: my gripe with status affects in tabletop rpgs, gameplay slow down to constant recalculations

Tristan (Stan): (I did not know I was supposed to run)

Melty: “Guys! There are doors down there! Doors with locks!”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol I’ve only been saying how we need to get out for several rounds of time now

Melty: “People keep valuable shit behind locked doors!”

Tristan (Stan): “Mina’s taking a beating”

Garrion: yay, Melty is back

  • Urso continues to follow after Zindal.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “So tell her to get the hell out of there already.”

Tristan (Stan): can I attack G?

Melty: “Quit playing with those things and figure out how to fly down here!”

Garrion: recap melty…. the tunnel you went down cirlces around and came into another sim ilar pit area

Mina: “I am! Shudap already! Ungrateful pricks!”

Garrion: yes go ahead.. they get no defense

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) continues down the corridor in the direction of Melty’s voice

Mina: “Was trying to stall em, while yall get the hell out, not to give you free time to argue! Now move!”

Tristan (Stan): do I have to target the hand or anywhere is ok?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Hand is the only thing we’ve been able to hit

Zindal (aka Ladzin): That’s the only part they manifest

Garrion: the hand is all that materialized

Tristan (Stan):
←Attacks Shadow 4 with a Broadsword Swing

Tristan (Stan) CRITICALLY FAILS by 10

-4 for hand, -4 for maneuver, 0 shock, 0 attacker’s posture, 0 miscMod, 0 accMod

Zindal (aka Ladzin): And you can only hit it if you readied to attack it when it manifested

Tristan (Stan): lol

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol

Tristan (Stan): lol

Tristan (Stan): luck roll

Taragnor: lol.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Zindal laughs at your pathetic excuse for swordsmanship

Tristan (Stan): (i’m lucking it)

Tristan (Stan): so, 1 re-roll?

Garrion: that was bow or sword?

Tristan (Stan): sword, but i’m going to use my luck

Garrion: ok, you need to step up a bit then

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Sword

Zindal (aka Ladzin): You get two rerolls

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Take the best of three

Mina: whenever I’m able to take an action, I’ll bug out

Tristan (Stan): 1 re-roll or 3?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Two

Zindal (aka Ladzin): You get your original roll and two rerolls

Tristan (Stan):

Tristan (Stan) FAILS by 8

Zindal (aka Ladzin): And take the best result of the three

Garrion: best of 3

Tristan (Stan): i need to stick to the bow

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol damn why do you have -8?

Tristan (Stan): wait… my skill is wrong

Garrion: -4 for hand and -4 for something else

Tristan (Stan): why am i rolling at -8?

Urso: ( you should use bow, and snipe at them as they attack someone else )

Garrion: because you are move and atk maneuver

Tristan (Stan):
←Attacks Shadow 4 with a Broadsword Swing
in the hand
←Rolls 12 vs. Skill 5 (13 with a modifier of -8)

Tristan (Stan) FAILS by 7

-4 for hand, -4 for maneuver, 0 shock, 0 attacker’s posture, 0 miscMod, 0 accMod

Tristan (Stan): i should only have -2

Mina: i thought that might happen, another reason i was attacking them

Garrion: that is correct

Tristan (Stan): well, that was a waste

Mina: thought some of yall might could get a shot in if they solidified to attack me

Melty: If you do a move + attack without spending a FP your skill is capped at 9

Tristan (Stan): i’ll blame it on them being incorporal

Taragnor: well you need weapon master to do that I think Sachi

Tristan (Stan): oh, I would have spent fatige but i’ll know for next time

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Dude we don’t know how many of them there are and we have no magic and no cleric, fuck trying to attack them

Melty: Yeah, you do

Taragnor: Doubt he’s got that with a sword

Tristan (Stan): i’m trying to save a friend (i’m all about in character)

Garrion: correct, no WM for him so can;t do that

Tristan (Stan): i have bow weapon master… but does not apply

Tristan (Stan): ok, i’m just swinging at air

Garrion: ok, he misses but at least not the crit fail

Tristan (Stan): (put her out of her missery)

Mina: (well its going to be hard to loot shit running from shadows)

Mina: (so are we running for the exit or what?)

Tristan is disconnected.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I’m just trying to get away from them for right now

Mina: (honestly have no idea wtf we’ve been doing lol )

Zindal (aka Ladzin): They weren’t following us before, but then two others showed up…

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Wondering if they’re only in one section or what

Garrion: ok, Mina.. you are still up to act and so is tristan… that was just his wait from last time

Tristan has connected.

Mina: (thats why i havent been paying much attention because i have no idea wtf is going on to begin with heh)

Mina: (so just run i guess)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol just follow my lead, damn

Garrion: Melty tells you of another passage….

Melty: (Um, what’s going on is you guys have been fucking around with ghosts and I found where we have to go)

Melty: :3

Mina: quit yer bellaching jeez, you’re gonna have a coronary

Garrion: lol

Garrion: mina and tristan run now?

Garrion: soth to melty and the others?

Mina: yes

Tristan (Stan): yup, indeed. i tried to help but she may just have to die..

Tristan (Stan): sorry!

Garrion: ST reduces move but I’m not going to nit pick it.. we’ll just leave it where it is and call this ST damage something different…. especially since it kills you at 0

Melty: (I’m just messin’~ )

Tristan (Stan): (tristan is actually scared, never ran into anything he could not just shoot it in the heart with an arrow)

Garrion: yeah, ithink this may warrant a fear check?

Garrion: ok, we all caught up not to current round….

Melty: From us all or just the ones who were in the poop?

Garrion: you may all take 1 action

Taragnor: Well these guys are over-the -top action heroes, I don’t figure normal sutff would phase em much

Garrion: i was just messing with you, it would likely warrant one but i think mina has had enough of a beating.. or groping

Garrion: correct.. most things that would scare commons wond not phase them.. but this is scary shit

Taragnor: Unless it’s like cthulhu or something

  • Melty doesn’t betray much actual “fear” of the wraiths… though she does seem rather frustrated with her inability to injure them…

Garrion: a zombie fopr ewxample… no fear check from you but a commoner yes… now getting your shit felt up and your ST drained 10 points… SCARY

Zindal (aka Ladzin): It would be different if they were using swords

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Zindal would view that as a challenge

Zindal (aka Ladzin): This is just bullshit that isn’t worth his time though

Urso: “where we go?”

Melty: (btw, to try and make up for having to go, here’s a song by one of the best bands in the world~)

Melty: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhFOdU1setA

Garrion: well fear checks have modifiers.. this would be FEAR+0.. Cthulhu… fear-20

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Away.”

Melty: “Down there!”

  • Melty points to the alcove in the wall of the shaft.

Garrion: it is 30 ft down….

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Can we just fast forward to where we’ve gotten away from these things?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Are they still chasing us or what?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I think it’s established that we aren’t trying to fight them

Garrion: you will have to jump to it.. but the gravity in here makes the jump easier.. like jumping down a cliff on the moon

Urso: (what the stat check for jumping?)

Garrion: we can, but they are going to chase.. your life force is what is drawing them

Melty: “The gravity here’s light… It’s totally meant for this!”

  • Mina tries to take the leap first.

Garrion: acrobatics

Melty: “I bet even you guys could make it.”

Tristan (Stan): “you can fly, does it really matter?”

Melty: (I don’t advise doing that without checking)

Garrion: with a mod…..

Mina: “If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s flying, or falling.”

Melty: (What the penalty for ST is gonna be)

Melty: (If any)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Acrobatics is DX

Urso: ( is st or dx?)

Mina: i dont gotta make a check to leap, i got the advantage

Garrion: this is DX based.. you are trying to hit a precice mark

Mina: its just a flat distance with me

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Can I use my actual Jumping skill or is it just straight up Acrobatics?

Garrion: or can use jumping if you have that skill better

Urso: " get rope out so if someone miss, they can grab rope "

Mina: if I miss, I’ll cling to the wall with my clinging

Melty: “I’ll fly it over to the other side…”

Garrion: Acro-2 or Jumping-2

Urso: (untrained?)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): ←rolls Jumping and gets 14 vs. Skill (16 with a modifier of -2)

Zindal (aka Ladzin) SUCCEEDS by 0

Melty: (That’d be the default for whichever one)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): That was close

Mina: ←rolls Jumping and gets 9 vs. Skill (13 with a modifier of 0)

Mina SUCCEEDS by 4

Garrion: will have to look it up…. i think -4 or -5 plus the -2 for the difficulty

Urso: (geez, I got like no shot then)

  • Mina lands way past the mark in an impressive leap.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Can’t see myself

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Can you reveal the passage?

Garrion: cause you are in the dark

Tristan (Stan): does the “moon gravity” offset any penelties?

Melty: (Default for Acrobatics is DX-6, Jumping has no default)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Oh, well get Urso over here then

Garrion: Zindal drops into the dark passage and feels mina land behind him

Urso: ( someone cast fly on me?)

Tristan (Stan): (don’t worry urso, i’m screwed too)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol don’t think Melty has it, she can do it on her own

Melty: (I don’t know it, yeah ^^; )

Garrion: amnd we come to the first REAL challenge the group has faced…..

Mina: My max long jump distance is 84’ so i think i can manage.

Melty: “Yo, hand me the rope and I’ll fly it over if you don’t think you can jump…”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Problem isn’t the jump for us, it’s the light

Tristan (Stan): so, does moon gravity help or no?

  • Urso hands one side of his rope over.

Mina: if i wasnt so weakened, I’d jump urso over

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Well he said the checks were at -2 so apparently not that much

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol if you’d just wait

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Melty said she could fly a rope across

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Damn

Tristan (Stan): (can I at least turn it into a swam dive?)

Tristan (Stan): swan

Zindal (aka Ladzin): She’s declaring IC that she can fly a rope across

Taragnor: heh, you should have saved your luck roll…

Garrion: Tristan jumps in…..

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Just let her do her thing

Taragnor: maybe at a failb y 1 you can at least grab the edge.

Taragnor: SInce you almost did it.

Garrion: he barely misses the eage and falls down…..

Melty: :x

Garrion: into darkness….

Garrion: then tristan you suddenly see a light below you

Melty: “Holy shit…”

Garrion: … you continue to fall and you see the platform with urso coming up

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Wow, infinite loop

Garrion: you are gaining speed though. but slower than normal

Urso: ( can I catch him?)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Well that’s something new.”

Melty: (Haha, that’s what I was trying to find out when I dropped stuff down the first shaft we came across, but I don’t remember if G said whether I saw it again or not)

Tristan (Stan): (confused as hell) "throw me that rope

Garrion: do you reach for urso.. or do you attempt to grab the opening ledge?

Melty: (I wanted to know if it would loop)

Tristan (Stan): i’ll reach for someone on the other side

Tristan (Stan): sense I almost made it

Mina: “That looks pretty fun.”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Heh, we should have seen the arrow and the torch that Tristan dropped loop back

Zindal (aka Ladzin): If the other shaft loops too

Tristan (Stan): “this is some freeky shit”

Garrion: that was the first shaft.. it is not a loop… just these two

Melty: Ahhhh

  • Melty looks up.

Melty: “Holy double shit!”

  • Urso waits for melty to get the rope over to the other side and then takes a running leap.

Garrion: very true…. i missed that detail

Tristan (Stan): “so this is what flying feels like… is kind of fun”

Garrion: the torch would have fellen back by you

Melty: “I love this place!”

Melty: “I want one just like it.”

Tristan (Stan): (lol, great pixie roll playing)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Including the groping shadow creatures?”

Urso: ( who grabbing the rope on the other side?)

Melty: “Ehhhhh.”

Garrion: we’ll say the wind put it out and in all the commotion you missed seeing it in unlit state

Tristan (Stan): "someone want to grab my hand)

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) reaches a hand out for Tristan

Melty: “Yeah, grab him before he reaches terminal velocity.”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (This probably isn’t the best idea)

Mina: “I need a stiff drink or something.”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Sounds like you need to invest a single skill point

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Instant +6 to your check

Garrion: ok you had rope? and who is holding it?

Urso: (can do that? guess I can, got a decent amount, will see if the rope helps.. am almost there, can probably just climb up the rope )

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Well Melty was going to fly a rope over, I don’t know who actually has the rope though

Garrion: Mina prob not the best

Melty: Yeah heh, I’m a fly it over and hand it to Zindal I guess

Melty: Since he was able to jump over first

Urso: well can be more then one holding it.. probably better if more then one holding it

Garrion: or did he jump before the rope was secure.. the shadows approaching could have rushed things

Zindal (aka Ladzin): We’ve only been mentioning flying a rope across for 10 minutes, lol

Urso: ( said He would jump once someone grabbed it )

Garrion: i know.. but you only had 2 rounds before the shadows are on you…. you do not have infinite time

Urso: heh, grab the rope zindal

Garrion: it takes time to get ther rope out and fly across

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Well who even has the damn rope

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I mean shit

Tristan is disconnected.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Can people like, I don’t know, actually pay attention please?

Taragnor: 2 rounds? damn…

Taragnor: you ain’tgonnabe able to get a rope out, throw it and set up in 2 rounds

Taragnor: 2 rounds in GURPS is 2 seconds. heh.

Melty: yeeeeah

Garrion: right… they were only 2 moves up the hall

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Okay well fuck the rope then, can we just resolve this already?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I mean god damn

Urso: will just jump if they get close

Garrion: that why i saying he probably jumped before it was ready

Zindal (aka Ladzin): It takes fucking forever to do any god damn thing

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Just DO SOMETHING already

Melty: Sounds like it’s time to butt up or shut up

Melty: “They’re not chasing us? Cool…”

Melty: “This has gotta be the treasure vault if they’re not allowed here…”

Tristan: “that party is starting to sound a bit more fun”

  • Melty rubs her hands together gleefully.

Garrion: urso bowls the rest of you over as he lands in the hall

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “The problem is how do we get the treasure back out?”

Mina: “So much for helping haul loot back.”

Mina: “I couldn’t lift a copper.”

Urso: " magic bag "

Mina: “Better hope thats enough.”

Melty: “I say we double back to the other shaft and see if we can give ’em the slip… Also, magic sack.”

Garrion: now with light in the tunnel you see a short distance to a turn and a door

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Well, hopefully it’s big enough to hold it all… Or at least the best bits.”

  • Urso works his arms and shoulders a bit after that.

Mina: “The question is, how much does that thing weigh when stuffed and how much stuffing can ya do to it…”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “I guess we’ll find out. Provided we actually find the treasure.”

Garrion: These halls are lined with doors—entrances into what loloks to be various jail cells

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Urso, bring the light up here.”

Mina: “The last ‘magic bag’ I saw was a bulls nutsack filled with some chicken bones, Satomi tried to pawn off on me.”

Urso: (geez, just like Rappan Atuk )

Garrion: these is a small shuttered “door” in the main door to flip open and see in the room

Zindal (aka Ladzin): So where is the door exactly

Garrion: nah, nothing like that

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I see like a little white sliver

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Need the light up front

Melty: “Wait, these are jail cells? What the crap? Where’s the treasure?”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Okay that’s much better

  • Melty starts flitting around and peeking into the peepholes looking for signs of treasure.

Urso: " maybe this lot that sort of vault "

Urso: not

Taragnor: lol be kinda hard to have prisoners here, considering the mayor don’t even go in…

Garrion: they are all shut.. you have to slide them open… not a big deal for most but for melty may be hard.. they rusted tight with age

Taragnor: No idea how he’d feed em.

Melty: “Hnnnnnng!”

  • Urso looks in each one with his light.

Mina: “I think I saw some pixie dust fly out her butt when she strained.”

Melty: “I demand that someone open this vision flap!”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Just because they look like jail cells doesn’t mean they are… Check them all.”

Garrion: this first one is occupied…..

Garrion: inside you see…..

Mina: “Doors on doors, Melty’s worst nightmare.”

Garrion: is this a question or a statement Zindal?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): OOC statement

Garrion: so he waits or moves?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): We were setting up to both attack him

Zindal (aka Ladzin): He should be in a position where he can attack

Garrion: this creature is big like urso

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I mean we both declared that we wanted to attack the thing so I don’t see why he isn’t already in a position to be able to attack

Urso: (bigger probably )

Garrion: the angle he is in now does not grant a shot.. i did not place him there

Tristan (Stan): it’s cool, i’m waiting for an opening (preferbly when he’s not dodging)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol well he should be positioned where he can get a shot, we both declared our intent well in advance of init

Taragnor: I mean if you need a holy weapon, figure it’s eye would be protected too.

Taragnor: Well yeah, it’s natural armor wouldn’t apply to the eye, but the actual mystical DR probably would

Taragnor: like the one that’s periced by silver or whatever.

Garrion: but if you had magic deflection or other magic protections then it would cover all

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Well this is supposedly a weak devil, maybe it doesn’t have very high magical DR

Taragnor: Don’t think the AP on a bodkin affects the magic DR it has, but might penetrate the normal hide.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Damn how much natural DR does it have? lol

Zindal (aka Ladzin): That’s like some crazy amount

Garrion: wold drop that to 9

Tristan (Stan): not sure if he’s magic or it’s hide… doesn’t really specify anyway. dr is probably dr unless it’s “vs” something

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Holy shit are you serious?

Taragnor: Wel it’s probably got DR 10/magic and like 6 natural DR or something

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol its DR in PF is only 5/Good and Silver, god damn

Tristan (Stan): ok, so 9hp got through or 2 got through?

Garrion: 2 got through

Taragnor: Ah okay.

Taragnor: So magic DR is only 5, and normal natural armor bonus is what like +9?

Tristan (Stan): 0k, does it have vitals?

Melty: Wowwwwww

Taragnor: So probablylooking at 14 DR or something

Tristan (Stan): if so, it’s 6 damage

Garrion: 7 natural

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah that’s crazy

Melty: I’m guessing it’s not wearing metal armor either

Tristan (Stan): we may have picked the wrong fight

Garrion: yes, has vitals

Tristan (Stan): ok, 6 total damge

Tristan (Stan): and that was close to my max damage… just to let you guys know

Szasmir: is reduced 6 HP, and now has 13 HP.

Urso: (geez, th is gonna be a long fight )

Taragnor: Yeah, Mlety may have to drop a kamehameha on it.

Garrion: now it goes….

Urso: ( get them healing spells ready melty )

Mina: spirit bomb more like it

Garrion: releasing that rage….

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol

Tristan (Stan): Zindal is going to get raped

Szasmir:
←Attacks Zindal (aka Ladzin) with a Thrust
in the Right Arm
←Rolls 6 vs. Skill 16 (16 with a modifier of 0)

Szasmir CRITICALLY SUCCEEDS by 10

0 for Right Arm, 0 for maneuver, 0 shock, 0 attacker’s posture, 0 miscMod, 0 accMod

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Oh fuck me

Tristan (Stan): shit balls

Taragnor: wow…

Tristan (Stan): can you luck a crit?

Melty: ohhhhhh shit.

Taragnor: And you used your luck up…

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Heh no

Taragnor: Think he used the luck up anyway.

Tristan (Stan): yikes

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Luck is only for your rolls anyway

Taragnor: Normally you could luck it though

Szasmir: Normal damage, and the victim drops anything he is holding, regardless of whether any damage penetrates DR.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): No you can’t

Taragnor: Nah if they attack you, you can makle em reroll

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I don’t think you can, we looked this up before

Taragnor: Pretty sure you can use it defensively.

Szasmir: The Glaive inflicts 6 imp raw damage.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Grah!”

Urso: not bad

Garrion: weak ass daamge

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Arm has 5 DR

Tristan (Stan): (disbelieving that Zindal just got outmatched)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I think that

Taragnor: Ah it’s only 6 damage, so he’s fine.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): That’s the first time I’ve been damaged in combat

Mina: “Really?”

Mina: “And you nagged me about goofing off?”

Urso has received initiative.

Mina: “Get it over with, pretty boy.”

Taragnor: If it only does 6 damage you aint’ got anything to worry about

Garrion: He rorars at the sight of blood on his foe

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Heh, well DR soaked 5

Melty: (Haha, it’s too bad it was the arm, cause I’m picturing him being all like YOU SCRATCHED MY FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE)

Urso: ( can attack from were I am, or have to ready?)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): So I guess I take 1 damage to the arm

Tristan (Stan): at least it was not the groin

Zindal (aka Ladzin): My arm is down to 6 HPs and overall I’m down to 11 HPs.

Taragnor: might be 2 damage cause it’s impaling, but not sure if it multiplies on the arm

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Nah it’s x1 for Impaling

Taragnor: It might just do regular damage on the arm, I’m not sure.

Garrion: impaling is x2

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Dude the combat sheet says x1 on the arm

Mina: “At least it didn’t grab your crotch like my enemies do! Now poke his eye out already!”

  • Mina cheers.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Pi++, Pi+, and Imp are x1

Zindal (aka Ladzin): That’s what it says

Melty: What combat sheet? Do you have a visual aid I’m missing?

Melty: That sounds useful >.>;

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Combat Cheat Sheet

Garrion: npe, they can’t all be x1

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Dude that’s what the sheet says

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Look at it

Urso: ( can attack from were I am, or have to ready?)

Garrion: dunno what sheet you are talking about

Zindal (aka Ladzin): The Combat Cheat Sheet

Taragnor: Think for an arm or leg, they might be no multiplier

Taragnor: since there’s no vital organs there.

Garrion: you can attack, but he has partial cover

  • Urso pulls out his signature move, a slashing upper cut to the belly.

Garrion: normal impaling is x2, cut is x1.5, crushing is x1

Garrion: vitals is x4

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Where is that listed?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Because the sheet says x1

Garrion: main book

Zindal (aka Ladzin): So something is wrong

Zindal (aka Ladzin): What page

Taragnor: well it’s x2 to the torso

Garrion: let me find it…..

Taragnor: DOn’t know if that applies to the arm though

Melty: Those values are right for the main book, but it could be different for the arm is what they’re saying

Garrion: same as torso

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah it’s different for different parts of the body

Urso:
←Attacks Szasmir with a Swing
in the vitals
←Rolls 16 vs. Skill 13 (15 with a modifier of -2)

Urso FAILS by 3

-3 for vitals, 0 for maneuver, 0 shock, 0 attacker’s posture, 1 miscMod, 0 accMod

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Where does it say that lol

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Because the sheet says something completely different

Garrion: torso is “standard” damage and applies to all except the vitals and eye with the bonuses

Taragnor: nah it says to reduce it to x1 for arm/leg.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I found it in the book, it says the same thing

Zindal (aka Ladzin): x1

Taragnor: basic book p.399

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Page 399

Garrion: • Small piercing (pi-): ¥0.5. • Burning (burn), corrosion (cor), crushing (cr), fatigue (fat), piercing (pi), and toxic (tox): ¥1 (damage is unchanged). • Cutting (cut) and large piercing (pi+): ¥1.5. • Impaling (imp) and huge piercing (pi++): ¥2.

Melty: It’s also on B552

Garrion: p. 379

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Look at page 399

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Arm or Leg (-2): A good way to disable without killing! Against a living target, reduce the wounding multiplier of large piercing, huge piercing, and impaling damage to ¥1.

Taragnor: 399 supercedes that, since that’s using the hit location rules. The basic rules just assume torso hits basically

Melty: “Against a living target, reduce the wounding multiplier of large piercing, huge piercing, and impaling damage to x1”

Garrion: ah, ok… i stand corrected

Melty: I didn’t know that either until Tab pointed it out and sent me the chart, lol ^^;

Garrion: did not know arm had own multipliers

Melty: I just found it in the book

Melty: When they did

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah heh, the different hit locations all have their own mods

Zindal (aka Ladzin): So I take 1 to the arm

Garrion: thanks for letting me know

Garrion: ok, urso misses

Zindal (aka Ladzin): And I guess I dropped my sword too

Taragnor: MOst rules lawyering ever to prevent 1 damage :P

Garrion: yep

Garrion: lol

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Hey man, damage in GURPS is deadly

Melty has received initiative.

Garrion: melty is up

Melty: For future reference, would the Lightning spell be considered a “tight-beam burning attack”? By these rules I think it would

Taragnor: heh, well even I wouldn’t be worried about 6 damage and I’m a super squishy wizard.

Garrion: the text should say

Taragnor: I don’t think so Sachi. tight beam burning is like a laser

Garrion: if it is just burning then no

Taragnor: Doubt a lightning bolt would be that precise. Think that’s just like electricity dmage

Taragnor: but electricity is awesome cause it can stun

Melty: (It does burning damage though)

Garrion: i think electicity does burning damage type

Melty: (And it’s not a jet, cone, area-effect, explosion, or follow-up attack)

Melty: (So by those standards, it is)

Taragnor: hmm… maybe, I don’t know the specifics.

Garrion: nah, it is just like a burning arrow

Melty: (That’s what it says on 399)

Taragnor: I know the sunray thing is. I dunno if every burning missile gets it.

Garrion: it is just a normal shot with no spread

Melty: (“any” ranged burning attack that doesn’t fit into any of those categories

Melty: And Lightning is that

Garrion: well you may have a point.. the burn on an arrow is a followup

Garrion: so i guess it is.. by the RAW

Garrion: unless explained otherwise in magic.. since that was written after

Garrion: ok, melty is up

Melty: (Well, the rules difference is you can target the eyes or vitals with it to do more damage, and I’m pretty sure that shooting electricity into someone’s eyes or heart will hurt them more than average)

Garrion: there is answere on gurps forums

Melty: Anyway~ I’m gonna spend both my actions charging up a Lightning spell, cause I wanna fling one. But I can’t charge, move, and fling all in the same turn…

Melty: So I’ll do the last two next.

Garrion: Lightning is an attack that fits poorly within the GURPS damage model, as its penetration behavior doesn’t really resemble a burning attack, and it doesn’t have the other key trait of a tight beam burning attack (able to make called shots for gaps in armor, like a piercing or impaling attack). That said, it doesn’t act like a non-tight-beam attack either, and won’t set fires very well.

Taragnor: Also remember you can put up ot your magery in points into a missile.

Melty: Aww

Garrion: ok

Mina has received initiative.

Garrion: Mina.. lets see what she has.. reduce all daamge by 1d6-1 due to ST decrease

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Heh, well that’s not too bad

Taragnor: oh it’s just 1d6-1 less damage?

Melty: (You can charge a missle with up to your magery per action, actually)

Taragnor: yeah.

Taragnor: So you could put in 2x your magery with 2 actions

Taragnor: Which should be a pretty big bolt, depending on how much magery you got

Garrion: yeah, from her default.. he weapons are enters in flat daamge and not using the SW or TH values so she needs to manually alter

Mina: dont meet min str of 12 for my sword, so guess im gonna spectate

Taragnor: think that just makes it unready if you swing it

Garrion: wow, that sucks.. i think you can still use just unready after atk

Melty: (Melty has 7 Magery with Air spells, so I could put up to 14 into it… Which would be 2/3 of my remaining energy…)

Taragnor: Though then your parry is off if it’s unready

Taragnor: whcih is seriously bad for you

Garrion: true

Taragnor: but then it only does 6 damage

Taragnor: so probably who cares.

Mina: I’ll just observe Zindals fools errand

Tristan (Stan) has received initiative.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol, that might have been a low roll

Taragnor: wow 7 magery? damn. lol.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Go for the eye Tristan, lol

Tristan (Stan): ok, i’ll try to drop an arrow in it’s eye this time (bodkin)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Pull a Zindal

Tristan (Stan):
←Attacks Szasmir with a Bodkin Arrow
in the eye
←Rolls 10 vs. Skill 15 (20 with a modifier of -5)

Tristan (Stan) SUCCEEDS by 5

-9 for eye, 0 for maneuver, 0 shock, -1 range, 0 miscMod, 5 accMod

Melty: (Yeah heh, I have 3 normally and 4 limited to Air spells on my wand)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Awesome

Szasmir: tries to dodge and rolls a 11 with effective skill 9

Szasmir FAILS by 2

Tristan (Stan): ok, hopefully no dodge…

Zindal (aka Ladzin): HAH

Tristan (Stan): !!!

Urso: nice

Taragnor: wow eye is only -5? damn.

Taragnor: DIdn’t know it was that easy to hit the eye.

Urso: now roll good

Tristan is disconnected.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Heh no, it’s -9 normally

Zindal (aka Ladzin): He’s got some mods to help him

Taragnor: ah

Tristan has connected.

Urso: shot so well, it knocked him out

Zindal (aka Ladzin): And yes I have been routinely making called shots to the eye with -9 and higher penalties

Garrion: haha

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Because Zindal is that fucking awesome

Tristan: got booted, one sec

Garrion: you succeeded

Urso: roll damage

Tristan (Stan): The Composite Bow (ST14) inflicts 8 pi raw damage.

Tristan (Stan): 1/2 to the eye

Melty: Yeah, hitting the eye is like Fallout difficulty, it seems impossible if you’re not good at weapons but if you’re skilled it becomes disturbingly efficient

Garrion: dropped to 3 raw

Tristan (Stan): then x4

Zindal (aka Ladzin): 1/2 DR

Zindal (aka Ladzin): For Bodkin

Taragnor: lol

Garrion: no nat armor on eye

Garrion: 12 total

Tristan (Stan): so 12?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Okay, 12 damage total then

Taragnor: yeah this does seem liek fallout. BOOM headshot!

Tristan (Stan): nice, and brobably blind

Tristan (Stan): lol

Szasmir: is reduced 12 HP, and now has 1 HP: at half move.

Tristan (Stan): alien blaster to the face

Szasmir: Major Wound Check

Szasmir: Szasmir rolls 3d6 and gets 16 vs. Skill (14 with a modifier of -5)

Szasmir FAILS by 7

Taragnor: yeah he’s screwed.

Urso: wow

Melty: I remember going through almost all of the original Fallout with a sniper rifle

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah it says if you do greater than 1/10 of total HP you blind him in that eye

Taragnor: Think that’s instadeath or instaKO anyway

Tristan (Stan): i would say I “found my dice” but I think that G lost his

Garrion: the creature stumbles a bit stunned from the blow to its eye

Urso: major wound is half total hp, not half remaining right?

Garrion: correct

Garrion: he only had 19HP

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Heh, nice

Urso: wow, it has less hp then Urso

Taragnor: thinknfailing the major wound check by 5 or more KOs you

Taragnor: if I remember right.

Tristan (Stan): (i’m totally giving Zindal shit)

Taragnor: or maybe that’s just crit fails

Garrion: he is KO

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Coup de grace time

Garrion: then he drops to the ground unconscious

Taragnor: ah okay, battle is over then.

Tristan (Stan): “Zindal, I killed it, you butcher it”

Melty: receives -4 fatigue, and now has 4 FP.

Tristan (Stan): “you should probably cut that things head off”

Taragnor: should skin it.

Taragnor: Make some devil hide armor

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Tch… I’m impressed… It’s been a long time since something actually wounded me in combat.”

Garrion: lol… Tristan gets to claim the glory for that kill.. and gloat to Zindal

Melty: “Seriously…?”

Tristan (Stan): (just giving him a hard time like I always do)

  • Melty hovers with a crackling orb of electricity balanced in her hand.

Tristan (Stan): “seriously, please cut that things head off”

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) picks up his sword and shoves it through the creature’s other eye, twisting it around a little in the socket

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Feel free to take a shot, little one.”

Garrion: and melty zaps it too>?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Though let me back up first.”

Taragnor: You can hold the missile remember sachi

Melty: (Oh, is it not dead?)

  • Urso takes his axe and chops its head off.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Just KO

Garrion: the smoky red crystal glaive rests in its hand

Taragnor: problem is that if anyone dam,ages you… the missiel goes off on you bsaically

Melty: (If it’s dead I’m not wasting this lightning bolt on it)

Taragnor: So it’s kinda agamble.

Taragnor: But you can save it basically

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol

Taragnor: Also think you can’t cast anything else

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) picks up the glaive and examines it after the creature is beheaded by Urso

Taragnor: But you can have a giant missile in waiting.

Melty: (Melty is so hard to hit though, it’s less of a gamble than if I was a giant like you guys)

Tristan (Stan): (I could totally see the pixie thinking “oh yeah you mother….. fucker!”

Taragnor: Just make sure you don’t get hit, or you’ll basically explode.

Urso: The Throwing Axe inflicts 20 cut raw damage.

Urso: The Throwing Axe inflicts 12 cut raw damage.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Hmm… What sort of prize do we have…”

Garrion: ok, you hack its head off while it lays there….

Tristan (Stan): “ok, so we left this party for some treasure right? I’m hoping we find some soon”

Garrion: o, who is taking the glaive so i can record to site?

Urso: anyone have the skill to use it

Garrion: is is a 2-h weapon

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Zindal will hold onto it unless someone else tries to claim it

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Though he obviously has no intention of using it

Garrion: urso could use with ease

Urso: it don’t fall into axe / mace skill does it? heh

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol, you might be able to default it

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah it’s two handed axe/mace at -4

Garrion: Melty/Taragnor.. don;t you pick up magic auras auto?

Taragnor: heh, gonna be tough to carry probably

Garrion: with magery

Taragnor: it’s like a 10 ft long polearm or something

Taragnor: Well nobody has the skill with a polearm or spear probably, so I doubt anyone will be using it with ease.

Taragnor: maybe if you gotta fight the wraiths again, but other than that, aint’ gonan be worth it.

Taragnor: Think you need to touch it

Zindal (aka Ladzin): If he has two handed axe then he can use it at -4 to that

Melty: Yeah

Taragnor: Unless you’re using the detect magic or mage sight spell

Melty: I can do that with my free hand though

Taragnor: Normalyl think magery is just touch

Zindal (aka Ladzin): What’s your weapon skill Urso?

Garrion: well would melty touch it?

Urso: I have all the axe skills

Melty: If someone asked her to

Mina: ive got mace skill

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Heh okay, you can use it with a -4 to your check then

Mina: is that mace/axe or something?

Urso: ya

Zindal (aka Ladzin): That’s the default for polearm

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Two handed Axe/Mace is at -4

Mina: technically i have a morningstar

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Or you can do DX-5

Mina: whatever skill that uses, i forget

Mina: one handed i think

Urso: might be useful against stuff that have dr

Mina: anyways

  • Melty alights on Zindal’s shoulder to rest.

Taragnor: probably be okay verus incorporeal mayb.e.. other than that, dunno if it’s really good for much else.

Urso: Urso will take it, if its magic

Garrion: ok, you defeat the creature and as it lays there is starts to smoulder….

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Hm… That’s an interesting reaction.”

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) rubs his index finger across Melty’s head as he watches the devil smolder

Garrion: the skin shrivels up and the insides melt away as if becoming hollow

  • Melty kind of nuzzles Zindal’s finger.
  • Urso tries a few practice cuts with it. ( though losing my shield during it would suck )

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Heh, Zindal is the one that picked it up

Zindal (aka Ladzin): You ain’t asked him for it yet

Melty: “Nice job proving your swordsmanship, hero boy.~”

Urso: " You going to use that weapon? it bigger then you "

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Heh… If Tristan hadn’t taken care of it I would have redeemed myself in short order.”

Garrion: then a final wisp of smoke curls up with a faint howl as the rest of the body turns to ashes

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) glances at Urso

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Hm? Something wrong with me holding onto it?”

Tristan (Stan): “don’t worry Zindal, i’ll be there so save your ass when your outmatched”

Melty: “That guy could at least swing it.”

Urso: " might be useful against those shadow stuffs if it magicie ?"

Zindal (aka Ladzin): ←rolls Greed and gets 14 vs. Skill (12 with a modifier of 0)

Zindal (aka Ladzin) FAILS by 2

Garrion: you may be a bit freaked out by this never having seen a devil or demon before

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “You’ve already got a weapon, don’t you?”

Tristan (Stan): true (I step back form the demon and look to the wizard for his reaction)

Melty: “Dude! That’d be awesome if you murdered another devil with it.”

Urso: " as do you. swordsman ?"

Melty: “It’d be like, ironic and shit.”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “I’m the one who pointed out that this thing looks special. You were going to ignore it before I had Melty open the door.”

Mina: “Irony is you schmoozing with Zindal, I thought you hated all humans?” she teases

Tristan (Stan): (nice rp zindal)

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) continues idly stroking Melty’s head as he talks

Tristan (Stan): “I mean, technically I killed it… shouldn’t I decide to takes it?”

Tristan (Stan): “maybe we need to make some rules about these kinds of things”

  • Urso shrugs, " doesn’t matter much to me, but seem waste you just going to lug it around without even maybe using it.. might hurt your back "

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Tch… What for? I’m the one who pointed out its potential value, I should get to claim it.”

Mina: (did we check all the other peep holes for the other cells?)

Melty: “Oh! I’m sorry!”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Not yet)

Garrion: only one other

Tristan (Stan): “I mean, I guess you did play meat shield. I really don’t want it anyway”

  • Mina goes to the next cell door, and slides open the peep hole looking inside.
  • Melty takes off and flies over to Mina, curtseying politely before taking a seat on her shoulder.

Garrion: this one is open.. urso looked…..

Tristan (Stan): “maybe there is another one of those things around and you can both have one”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Hehe, yeah Zindal would have grudgingly handed it over if he hadn’t failed his self-control check)

  • Mina brushes Urso aside. “Outa the way, you meat mountain. Ladies first.”

Garrion: This cell contains a simple straw mattress and the mummified remains of a long-dead prisoner.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (But he likes the shinies)

Mina: “He’s long dead, whatever he was.”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (Mina might be able to convince him to hand it over though…..)

Garrion: in fact as you check all the rest of them they all contain the same thing.. except one, which is unlocked and is empty

Melty: “I didn’t want to weigh you down after those wraiths got to you, Miss Mina… But if you want me here I’d be happy to~!”

Mina: “Hmmm, all empty except this one here, which was unlocked.”

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) takes out his first aid kit and tends to his minor scratch once Urso seems to have lost interest in the glaive

Zindal (aka Ladzin): ←rolls First Aid and gets 11 vs. Skill (11 with a modifier of 0)

Zindal (aka Ladzin) SUCCEEDS by 0

Mina: “If you can get my strength back, I’ll even feed you biscuits like a parrot.”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): (What’s that heal? 1d6?)

Mina: (biscuit is english for cracker)

Garrion: dn;t recall

Tristan (Stan): ←rolls First Aid and gets 13 vs. Skill (12 with a modifier of 0)

Tristan (Stan) FAILS by 1

Tristan (Stan): tried to patch my arm

  • Melty is completely cheerful and pleasant to Mina… Her demeanor switched pretty rapidly.

Urso: " so we continue on then?"

Garrion: 1d-3

Tristan (Stan): “so wizard, why didn’t those ghost things follow us down here?”

Mina: “Guess so, unless we wanna check the cells for anything hidden.”

Garrion: for first aid

Melty: “Hm… It’d take better healing magic than I know to heal that…”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Okay, well I only had 1 damage so I patch myself up

Melty: “You know, that’s a good question…”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Since I’m assuming it heals a minimum of 1 anyway

Garrion: yep

Taragnor: Also don’t think you can cast another spell with the missile active, not sure though

Melty: (I can’t)

Tristan is disconnected.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): My arm is down to 7 HPs and overall I’m down to 12 HPs.

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) goes back to idly stroking Melty’s hair if she’s still on his shoulder after he finishes bandaging himself

Garrion: Bandaging It takes one minute to apply pressure or a tourniquet to stop bleeding. This restores 1 HP.

Melty: (Melty would discharge it into a wall if Mina told her to though; they haven’t really had a chance to bond over their fey ancestry yet so right now she’s at the “smarmy and obsequious” stage of the relationship)

Garrion: After bandaging, the aid-giver may take extra time to apply a more elaborate dressing and treat the victim for shock. He must keep the victim warm, comfortable, calm, and still. After the time indicated on the First Aid Table, he may roll against First Aid skill. On a success, the medic rolls as indicated on the table to see how many HP the victim recovers – minimum 1 HP. A critical success restores the maximum possible HP! This roll includes the 1 HP for bandaging; thus, a roll of 1 HP restores no further HP. On a critical failure, the victim loses 2 HP instead of recovering any HP at all!

Tristan has connected.

  • Melty keeps glancing over at Zindal.

Garrion: ok, i think we ready to wrap?

Mina: “My own personal shoulder ballista.”

Tristan: yup, probably

  • Mina remarks looking to Melty
  • Melty grins.

Tristan: “short stack, i’m still looking forward to seeing that lightling bolt fry a bad guy”

Melty: “Me too… My fingers are itchin’…”

  • Zindal (aka Ladzin) doesn’t seem to be paying particular attention to Melty other than stroking her hair, almost like he’s doing it subconsciously

Garrion: ok, good job all

Melty: “Hey… Someone come touch my head… That felt kinda good…”

Garrion: had some good RP acting out character motives

Mina: “Don’t spoil it, Zindal.”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): “Hm?”

Garrion: had some action.. and you finally listened to melty

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol yeah

Garrion: and found another path

Melty: Yay~

Tristan: maybe she will be the new leader?

Mina: (she landed on my shoulder, so i assumed you were next to us doing your creeping)

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Oh, heh, I missed the part where she moved from me to you

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah I wouldn’t still be trying to pet her then

Garrion: let’s call it 4 CP for tonight

Melty: Aww~

Urso: each?

Garrion: yes.. always each

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Nice

Melty: Oooo

Tristan: nice

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Urso I recommend investing a point or two in those movement skills, lol

Melty: I can get some new stuff!

Tristan: time to get some acrobatics!

Urso: when can we spend these things? I got like 30 now I think

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol damn

Zindal (aka Ladzin): You haven’t spent any since we started?

Taragnor: heh, time for weapon master

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol seriously

Melty: Oooo

Taragnor: think he’s been saving for WM.

Melty: That would pump you up

Garrion: you can spend at any time if you can justify the increase

Tristan: weapon master, ray spell?

Taragnor: lol could you take WM (ray)?

Taragnor: That’d be pretty badass

Melty: omg can you do that shit?

Urso: I have, just none since we started this acting thing, last thign I did was spend 1 pt to get acting

Garrion: but you may only increase one step between sessions

Taragnor: Since they roll tons of dice

Taragnor: that’d be pretty uber

Garrion: so you can’t put like 20 points in one skill

Melty: There’s no way, I gotta check that

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol wow

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah that would be awesomely ridiculous if you could do that

Zindal (aka Ladzin): And I would totally consider making a GURPS Tabris with that

Melty: Ah, it says “muscle-powered”

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Aw, sadness

Melty: So I can’t do it with lasers :(

Urso: no, am thinking of getting weapon master, figure have been fighitng with an axe for a while now.

Garrion: well check your sheet with the total on the site… i have your total character CP on there

Melty: btw

Tristan: yeah, that would bu uber with your ST

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Hmm, up to 11 CP available…

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah you totally need Weapon Master

Garrion: not counting the 4 you just got

Melty: I have yet to sit and finish everything with my new M&M character

Zindal (aka Ladzin): No the 11 is with the 4

Urso: sorry, only 26 unused, hehe

Melty: But the one power I solidly know for sure that I want for her monster kitsune form is I want her to be able to spit lasers

Garrion: ok, here is the “Official” answer from KROMM.. the line editor for GURPS

Taragnor: hehe.

Urso: btw, waht book are those wild card combo skills in? that online sheet thing doesn’t have them does it?

Garrion: 1. Burning attacks are never “tight-beam” unless the rules say so. David and I went throught the Basic Set and made sure to add “tight-beam” wherever it belonged. If you don’t see it, you can be reasonably certain that’s on purpose. 2. Electricity isn’t “tight-beam” as a general rule. Charged-particle beams might be, but that’s not the same thing. 3. If there’s enough electricity to damage material objects and kill people, you can rest assured that there’s a serious fire risk. A 10d fire attack and 10d electrical attack have the same odds of setting a fire. Realistically, the plasma arc of the electrical attack will ignite a lot of things that chemical flame won’t ignite. On the other hand, its physically smaller, so it cancels out in terms of setting fires in GURPS.

Taragnor: The power ups 7 article had the most wildcards that I know of

Taragnor: There’s some in the core rules, but not many

Melty: Like a video game boss just straight up shoot lasers out of her mouth

Garrion: yes PU 7 has them all to date

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I can attest to high energy electrical discharge setting things on fire

Zindal (aka Ladzin): It’s called arc flash

Zindal (aka Ladzin): It happens when you short a 480V circuit

Zindal (aka Ladzin): And it’s not pretty

Taragnor: heh.

Urso: those those wild cards in the gcs builder thing? G ?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): They showed us pictures in electrical safety class

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Gruesome shit

Taragnor: nah don’t think tehy’re in there

Taragnor: but you can create new ones

Garrion: some of them are, not sure if all

Taragnor: they got the pricing formula in there

Garrion: but you can make anything if it is not

Taragnor: instead of selecting Average/Hard/etc. for the skill just select “W” that makes it a wildcard pricing

Melty: It’s not quite the same thing but in my computer repair class in high school I witnessed someone smoke out a computer

Melty: Completely destroyed it IIRC

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol

Urso: these any like physical ones? like all the running, jumping, climbing, swimming.. stuff like that ? would be interested in that for Urso

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah imagine that but with one of those big electrical disconnect boxes

Zindal (aka Ladzin): They measure the arc flash protection boundary in feet

Melty: o.o

Taragnor: heh.

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Like basically within 3 ft is considered “on or near”

Urso: call it decathelon skill, hehe

Garrion: so there is your answerre melty

Taragnor: There’s probably an athletic wildcard, not sure what it’s called though

Garrion: let’s look

Zindal (aka Ladzin): My guess would be Athlete!

Melty: I’m pretty sure what they did was set the voltage selector to 220v/230v

Melty: And switch on the power supply

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol, zap

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I saw some pictures where this guy was trying to steal copper out of an electrical substation

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Blew his arm off

Melty: Holy crap

Garrion: also, wildcards do have a couple extra benefits for the points you have to put into them.. the extra benefits i approved are on the site

Taragnor: yeah, generally you get no benefits really unless you put 12 points or more into em

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I also saw a video where this crane accidentally hit a power line and shorted to ground

Zindal (aka Ladzin): The whole crane caught on fire and sparked like crazy

Mina: what does the little flag button next to scrolllock do in MT?

Taragnor: Ah okay, Move! is probably what Urso wants

Zindal (aka Ladzin): It toggles the typing notification in the upper left corner

Mina: try it then

Zindal (aka Ladzin): So like you won’t see “Tabris is typing…”

Mina: doesnt do that when i toggle it

Mina: typing typing typing typing typing

Mina: must be broken i guess

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah I can’t see it saying that you’re typing

Urso: where that at?

Taragnor: that has acrobatcis, climbing, jumping and stealth

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I think it hides your own typing

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Can you see it saying that I’m typing?

Taragnor: In Power Ups #7

Melty: So our CP total is 4 + what’s on the page?

Mina: try it again tab

Mina: type

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Typing

Mina: ah ok

Mina: yeah it just affects you

Urso: that in the builder?

Taragnor: It’s one of the little PDFs

Mina: what about me, do you see mine?

Melty: I’m typing right now can you see it?

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Probably for whispers and shit

Mina: trying to determine which is on or off

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Nah dn’t see yours

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I turned mine back on

Melty: Hehe, I have mine back on too

Mina: ok red thingy must mean its turned off?

Melty: I usually keep it on

Urso: can send it over?

Garrion: yep

Melty: Mhm

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Red with white dash is turned off

Mina: ok was just curious about that since i never noticed any effect playing with it

Mina: see my typing notification now?

Melty: Wheee, I have 5 CP to play around with

Zindal (aka Ladzin): My guess is it helps you hide whispers to the GM and such

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah I see it now

Melty: Yeah, hehe

Mina: ok roger

Mina: thought it was something broken

Zindal (aka Ladzin): I got 11 points… I can raise Broadsword another point!

Mina: i know what im spending mine on

Mina: Affects Insubstantial imbuement

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Or I can save 4 more and buy the next level of Luck

Melty: Yeah heh

Garrion: lol, really?

Mina: i outa

Zindal (aka Ladzin): lol, I’m kinda thinking about taking that myself

Zindal (aka Ladzin): My sword skill is so crazy awesome that I can cut into the shadow dimension

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Or something

Mina: well im talking about the imbue advantage

Mina: one of the techs for it is ghost strike or something

Garrion: it is sort of like the spell blade of vanguard that tab is so fond of

Mina: i was gonna take it for vampiric strike, but might add the ghost one while im at it

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah I should look at that more closely at some point

Melty: Aw, it’d cost me 6 points to get Affects Insubstantial on all my personal Magery

Mina: G just opened pandora’s shit box

Melty: :3

Mina: tho actually the problem tab is

Mina: theyre skills

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Though I still want to eventually get Broadsword to the point that I can just stab people in the eye with skill 18 before applying other penalties

Mina: so your uber sword skill doesnt do jack

Garrion: actually that was you that mentioned it, haha

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah heh

Melty: Actually I’d totally want to make an imbue-type character if I was gonna go melee

Melty: It sounds cool

Mina: there aint that many of em to be honest

Melty: Sounds a lot like my melee idea for Asha, heh

Zindal (aka Ladzin): What stat does it go off of? Int?

Mina: i just wanted the vampiric one for fluff

Mina: since the muramasa in castlevania did a HP drain like that

Melty: It’s also a really good effect iirc

Zindal (aka Ladzin): If it uses DX or ST I could do decently with it

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Wouldn’t be able to do called shots and shit but I could do straight torso attacks well enough

Mina: http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/castlevania/images/3/35/Muramasa.gif/revision/latest?cb=20140405230212

Tristan: ok guys, heading to bed. have a great night

Mina: as seen here

Tristan is disconnected.

Garrion: yep, i need to hit the sack too

Garrion: saving progress

Melty: Night!~

Garrion: next session T gets more spotlight

Taragnor: yeah heh. would like to finish my end of the robbery.

Mina: not sure tab, i think same stat as the weapon skill it uses

Mina: same default

Garrion: took forever to get moving away from the shadows

Zindal (aka Ladzin): Yeah I could do decently then, since Broadsword uses DX

Mina: like itd be like broadsword, bought twice or whatever

Mina: its been a while since i read it

Mina: its in Power Ups 1

Session 17
