Judging by the fact that we've got kobolds running the show in a major city getting all bent out of shape over a group of travellers, I think our chances may be slim on that prospect.  :rollseyes
Illegal abortion clinics were invented way before our age. I think it's not much of a stretch to have an illegal temple that supplies black market CLW in a medieval (post-apocalyptic) fantasy setting. :D

Yeah, but think about what they charge for their services. :)

Alternatively: Bed rest, plus judicious applications of healing belt charges? :D

And in between, tree guy CdGs RJ? :p

I am worried about that. That's why X is talking smack to draw tree guy's fire. But if it doesn't work out how would you feel about RJ becoming a Tome Vampire:smirk  Then again, a Raise Dead scroll might be better. I'm just not sure if the 6K+ cost of one could be hand waived or not.
I wouldn't mind. The stat mods are practically useless to me, but I don't lose anything important either. Janna already hates (sun)light, and is already into blood anyway.

EDIT: Can't you also make ghouls? Those get +Dex and a bite attack, which translates to more to-hit, more damage, and more attacks. :D

Yes, but the ghoul ritual only works on targets that are dying not dead. So if you want the template LMK, now is a good time.  :P

Ok, so where are you guys headed? Where is X teleporting to this time?

About a mile outside of the city, 50 ft off the road.

I said in a PM (I think) that if you want to use it on dead targets, that's fine with me, since I nerfed it a bit (the ghouls it makes are CR-2 instead of CR).

Ok, I'll "Make it so." :D (InnaBinder would appreciate that joke, if he were still here. :P )


Edit: Do you guys plan to go back and fight the tree-dude? If not, I'll post his stats.

If he's just gonna use the same ol' tactics, I don't see a reason to go back there. Dude's got anger-management issues. :P

RJ may be making plans to go back to 10 minutes from now after the others don't need that time-travelling thingamajobber anymore. :P

:lmao Yeah, at that point knowing his stats won't make much of a difference I think. I encourage this kind of thinking, though. It can certainly make the game... interesting. ;)

Ok, I just re-read the Dungeonomicon section on why the normal D&D hiding rules are dumb, and I think I am going to start using what they suggest. The main difference is that you don't actually need cover or concealment to hide from an enemy that doesn't know you're there and/or hasn't spotted you yet. (So you can sneak up behind people, basically.) I don't think this will change much in actual game play. Once you've been spotted, you need to get out of sight to hide again (unless you have Hide in Plain Sight), and there are big penalties for trying to hide while attacking, also. Here are the rules on it.

They seem pretty fair to me, specially because you no longer get into a situation such as "but I know where the arrows came from. They came from over there. That exact spot. Punctured my kidney 20 times. At the same intervals. With the same freaking snigger behind each and every one of them, even!" "Regardless, your spot check isn't high enough to perceive the rogue hiding behind that tower shield." "*sigh*"
Gendou Ikari is basically Gregory House in Kaminashades. This is FACT.

There is a -20 penalty to Hide for attempting to fight while hidden. The distance penalties on Spot are pretty amazing, but most people can't hide at a -20 penalty.

That sounds almost like a challenge. :smirk

So, did RJ want to be turned into a Ghoul, or should I use my wand of Lesser Vigor on her? :P

Well... I can always retcon and say she died, if that's what Agita wants. :P

I don't mind either way. Being undead does have the disadvantage of being harmed by the stuff that heals your friends. For now let's leave it at this and have becoming a ghoul as a contingency in case RJ does die (possible, since she's kind of a glass cannon).

I won't worry too much about trying not to kill her in the future, then. :D (Not that I pulled any punches here.  :smirk )

Will use however many charges are needed. Let me know how many it takes- it's 1 hp/round for 11 rounds/hp, so about 1 minute per charge.
RJ is currently at or around 0, and her max hp is 57, so it would take five charges to get her near full.
In other words, I can do something like this another nine times. :P

One of Xuuvosic's minions is an encyclopedia. So you guys actually know where the Mucklestones are. I don't think you know exactly which one is the correct portal, though, but I'd have to look back at the thread to remember for sure. Bah, he got high enough that he is pretty sure he knows which one is the correct portal. So yeah, you guys know where to go next, assuming you're going to the underdark portal.

@HeadofVecna: I already healed RJ via a wand of lesser vigor. I dunno about anyone else, though.

So who else needs healing? Just let me know how many charges you need. Again, 11 hp per hit from the wand.
