So... what do I need to do to bribe you guys into posting again? ... You're almost to the point where you can actually start traveling through time!

A couple of water benders, a dike, a flaming arrow, and a few barrels of blasting jelly?

Raoul doesn't have anything he can blast due to the DMZ, so...  :shakefist
Gendou Ikari is basically Gregory House in Kaminashades. This is FACT.

The vrock isn't in the DMZ. Raoul can't see it, but Marlowe and/or RJ could tell him where it is.

Well why didn't you SAY SO!  :lmao

Seriously though, Raoul would be pulling this one off blind.

Well... you guys don't actually know where the DMZ starts and ends... and you can't actually see the Vrock (except for RJ and Marlowe)... so in truth, your characters might not know that it is outside the DMZ... But they could guess that from the fact that it seems to be invisible. (You can't see it, even though it is flying in open air. Marlowe has permanent See Invis, and RJ is close enough for True Seeing to work, unlike the rest of you.)

I don't really know of a good way to draw the damned map, since this combat is heavily dependent on having a vertical dimension... So let's just wing it and go with descriptions, OK?

Right now, RJ is on top of a 50 foot tall wall, basically where I have the Vrock labeled on the map. The Vrock itself is 120 feet higher than that, in mid-air. Marlowe has backtracked a bit towards where RJ is labeled on the map. The rest of you have begun piling out of the Pit next to him. Did I get all of that right?

Edit: Ah crap... I'll update the map, and write in numbers for the vertical dimension, I guess...

Edit2: I added a scale bar, instead of a grid. I don't feel like redrawing this crap with a grid... especially since the 3rd dimension makes it somewhat pointless. Just tell me (relatively) where you want to move to, and I'll add it onto the map. You can correct me if it isn't how you'd like.

You don't need to bribe me to post, you just need to get the other guys posting their actions. :P

Seriously though, there's not a lot I can do since I can't reach that high. I could morph into something with wings, though I'd lose my size.

Unfortunately, the only teleport I have (Dim Door) that could get me that high would cost me the rest of my actions, allowing the Vroc plenty of time to get away yet again. Goddamn, I never knew Greater Teleport at will was this annoying. :P Now that it's already screamed, thus eliminating any chance to kill it before it calls for its buddies, our best bet might be to simply make a break for it and hide somewhere else. Just you wait 'till I get Shadowpounce...

:lol Glad to see I can still keep you guys on your toes even with all those buffs and items. ;) TBH I was a bit worried...  :P

Marlowe's "Find the Path" spell points him right at the pile of rubble inside the DMZ. Or more accurately... under it.

Ouch. That might be a problem...If we're going to have to shift some rubble around, we have little chance of doing that mid-fight, especially if we're standing in the DMZ the whole time. So it might be better to break off and come back later...they might increase the guard presence, though

We could retreat for now, call in Sammy, and wish for some kind of etherealness spell, then skirt the DMZ and go straight for where FtP is pointing Marlowe. The target is very likely not in the DMZ, otherwise the spell wouldn't have worked in the first place, would it?

FYI: We're using the RC ruling that says AMF doesn't block LoE. So not necessarily...

Ideally, though, I'd like to know where the DMZ is first--having the spell suppressed while we're underground wouldn't be fun.

Well, damn. Then it's probably smack in the middle. :P

Hmm... What's the biggest AoE Raoul has? If we put down a large enough one across the area, we can tell the outlines of the DMZ by where the boom is supressed and where it isn't. Would have to be something that still gets supressed with AMF not blocking LoE like Hentacles or so, though.

I added a very minor tweak to the magic item attunement rules, which I don't think will affect any of you. It is basically due to a "fluff"-based explanation for them that I saw and liked on the gaming den. I stuck it in my "general" house rules thread, but not the one for this game.

So who's up for two points of Con damage to make that 80 feet-radius instead?  :D

Alright, seriously, course of action.

1) We stay, probing the limits of the DMZ and trying to get to the portal now.
2) We make a break for it and come back later.

Debatable, but hey. :P So as of right now, RJ and Marlowe are the only ones who can see it, correct? So we provide the coordinates for the artillery, i.e. you.
