I hate to say it. But breaking out and trying to convince the Pit Fiend not to kill us might be our best bet. I recall something about demonic teleport not working around Myth Drannor.
How about non-demonic Dimension Doors? RJ has those, and can HiPS when she's out of the DMZ.
I believe I said that no one could teleport within or into the mythal without a "key", but I can't remember for sure...
Ah. I wonder if one of our Knights of Myth Drannor has a key. :smirk

You guys let me know when you're ready to start setting your cunning plan into motion.   :flutter

Very clever insight Agita. OK if X. appropriates it to move things along? Or would you rather have RJ put it forth?

We poke my head out so I can convince General Chokes-on-cock not to kill us. Or we cavity search one of the Knights of Myth Drannor for a 'key' to teleport within or into the mythal once we poke our collective heads out.

...Didn't we actually ask the imp to get us a letter with his master's seal for that purpose? I remember something to that effect.

I don't think handing a balor a letter telling him we work for Dispater would have the desired effect. Maybe if all we wanted was for him not to kill us, but we're trying to get our hands on a time-travel artifact.

Either's fine with me. Has X shared the info with the party, or do we just assume he has?

Besides, after re-reading that section here: http://brilliantgameologists.com/boards/index.php?topic=7770.msg301416#msg301416 (Phaedrus, the link in the rules and world info thread is broken)

It seems we were trying to get our hands on the "affidavit" but couldn't manage to get anything that would definitively prove what we needed. Besides, once he gets killed, he effectively just stops existing. There's not a whole lot of evidence when that happens.

By the way, a relatively minor point, but I think we managed to agree to capture souls to give Sammael, presumably in exchange for his services. I'm a little fuzzy on this though.

Oops, sorry I didn't answer that when it first came up. I think that with telepathy unavailable, and us potentially needing potentially needing to convince the knights to provide the key, playing it close to the vest might be better.

If we can get the mythal key (be it a password or object) quickly, we may be able to avoid relying on Chokes-on-cock's 'mercy'. Ideally, we'll be able to teleport to a safe distance, allowing you to negotiate with him from a position of strength, via Sammy wrought Project Image.

If by we you mean Marlowe and Cade? Yeah, you guys made some promises, but I believe even past-Sammy is obliged to enable the wish economy for us regardless. Is that correct Phaedrus?

Technically I don't think we ever made this into a bargain. Sammy's obligated to help us regardless; the souls were intended to shut him up about how he has to give away his services for free. Since none of us has thinaun weapons, it's kind of a moot point.

This is all correct. He also gave you a note from his master for you to show to his past self, instructing him to aid you.

No info for li'l RJ then, but I can always "innocently" suggest a solution.

I'm also going to say that the barghest's weapon and arrowheads were made of Thinuan metal, which you can use to store souls, if you want to mess around with this.

Cade waves around his formerly barghest-owned large magic thinuan guisarme. :P

Still, we never made an official pact or anything to collect souls, though in the same post I quoted above Phaedrus mentioned using souls as a crafting resource. Might be handy to keep in mind for the future.

Problem is, we can't teleport with or without the key while we're in the DMZ, and those moans won't keep the hellwasps away forever. So we'll have to make it a point to get the key, get to a magic-hot zone and GTFO.

Cade basically carved out a little pocket on the inside of the dome that has magic. It's basically cubic-shaped, and 2 feet on a side. Xuuvosic could fit into it if he folded his arms and legs up around him.

He also widened the pocket quite a bit after that, as I understand it.

He watches the human and elf leave, and of their departure he mutters to himself, 'We performed a pretty even exchange, but I can't help but expect that this is going to come back to bite us in the ass later.'

Excellent point. Just because they did what we needed them to isn't necessarily a reason for demons such as the PC's to let them go. I don't know. It seems like there is risk both in letting them go and in attacking them.

Say, did all the temporary effects we had running get drained away by proximity to the rift? I remember something about that being the OOC plan, so as not to have to deal with them anymore. This would also mean that telepathy is back up, allowing us to coordinate a surprise attack if desired.

At the very least, we should put the key somewhere where they can't target it with divination.

All of your magical effects are back in place. They were just suppressed. So these guys couldn't even see you when they were getting ready to take off (a fact I'd forgotten...).
