[spoiler]To be fair, Cade said "between" the enemies and the stones, nothing about putting the cloud on the stones themselves. :P[/spoiler]
There's at least two of them, though, on opposite sides of the clearing. So the most efficient way to cut both their Lines of Sight is to just put the cloud on the stones.

Ok, so this will require a cursory examination of each stone, since the runes on them aren't all facing each other. I'll just call this a DC 0 Search check that can be done as a free action, but you still have to be on the correct side of the stone to see the rune. So you'll basically have to run around and look at each one till you find the right one. You can look at the map and work out the optimal path through them all or whatever if you want, but this will probably take a couple of rounds (unless you get lucky). We'll let the dice decide which stone is the correct one, since I didn't even pick it yet. ;) So you can roll 1d10, then 1d9, 1d8, etc, till you get a 1. Each die roll will represent checking one stone, and when/if you roll a 1 it will be the correct one. Odds are you'll roll a 1 before you get to the last one... If not, that will be it. :D

If we did this by the rules, it would probably require a search check (full round action for each stone) or spot checks (move action for each stone). So I think I'm being fair about it... The Unapproachable East book actually says these stones move around also, so I'm not just making this shit up. :P

If you guys are ready, I guess we're just waiting for HoV/Xuuvosic to teleport you.


Also, I don't think I mentioned this before, but I'm going to say this Enveloping Pit has had the functions of a Bottle of Air incorporated into it by the goblins, since they actually lived in the thing.

Yeah, I always liked first-person shooters like Duck Hunt. Good luck, Agita!  :smirk ;)

*dramatic FPS background music plays*

'Port away, HoV. Preferably right next to the first 'stone, facing its rune. I'm gonna wait with actually rolling until when I get back from school tomorrow, since it's already late. :P

I'm thinking RJ will pre-cast her Darkness on romething that's lying around and might be good to throw, like a small rock or a coin.

EDIT: Looking for the right Mucklestone (1d10=3, 1d9=2, 1d8=2, 1d7=7, 1d6=5, 1d5=5, 1d4=4, 1d3=3, 1d2=1) How come I fucking knew it? :P So I guess RJ will be spending some seven-ten rounds looking for the stone. Post sometime later (after X has actually teleported the lot).

Xuuvosic teleports to the first rune, and in a low stealthy (Hide check (1d20+16=29)) crouch, moves to check a second and a third if necessary. If he gets lucky before his second standard action (i.e. ports right to it or finds it on his move action), he'll try to activate the rune.
Does he give RJ a chance to get out of the pit? Or is he just searching himself? Anyway, I guess I'll roll your "search checks" using the method I said earlier.

Also, could I get a Move Silently check also? Assuming you're trying to move silently...


Hrrm, doesn't give me the chance to interject that the stone doesn't likely make an actual gate, but rather probably acts as a teleportation focus. Or rather, the chance to roll a knowledge check or ask the barghest. :P
You could ask the barghest, since you're both in the pit. :P

Oh that.  :ahem  Is it too late to not move and just hide? I haven't made a MS roll on IC yet.

I was under the impression that RJ was going to climb out, put down a Darkness zone, and do the searching herself. I don't particularly mind, but she does have much higher stealth mods.

No, that's fine. You don't have to move. You can just sit there and cower in fear if you want. :D

I was too, but HoV's post was a bit confusing. It sounded like he was going to also search, but then his actions didn't include dropping the pit so RJ could get out. If he wants to do that, that's fine.

I realize that his assumptions he had before teleporting have probably changed quite a bit. So he can change his actions entirely if he wants.  The old saying goes something like "The best laid plans only last till the start of battle.", right? :D

If you want Ris-Janna to also get out and sneak around, we'll just go with that. That way we won't have to wait for HoV to post again just to say "Yeah, I meant to let her out of the bag hole pit".

Just go ahead and make Spot, Listen, MS, and Hide checks for me, please. And tell me where she's going. I am also not sure exactly where HoV teleported to, either. (He said "the first stone", but I hadn't labeled them yet at that point, which is my fault). It shouldn't matter much, so just pick a spot on the map if he doesn't show back up before you go.

We should also roll initiative, also. Just in case...


And yes, I know my map sucks. I use Paint and I don't care, doo-dah, doo-dah!

I modified my in-game post. If all you're doing is trying to find the right stone, then you find it unmolested and we'll move on.

Sorry about that. I was under the impression that with a tarp backing the pit remained open all the time. If it closed, I think X would have to make tough UMD roll to open it due to alignment.

And no, X doesn't know Sylvan.

I guess if you're dragging the tarp around then you could keep it open. Sure.

RJ is Neutral Evil, by the way, which is one of the allowed alignments. ;)

Yeah, but I don't think you could open it from the inside. It wouldn't be much of a pit trap if you could... which is actually what it is designed for. So we'll just go with HoV keeping it open by dragging it around on a tarp for now.

It's 10 feet wide, so I don't think he could carry it around all that easily, but he could pick it up long enough to teleport with it, since the tarp wouldn't weigh that much and the pit is weightless.

I guess he could mostly close it, though, to make it less awkward.

Sure, but she can open or close it at will while she's outside, so it doesn't need to be dragged around on a tarp while she's looking through the stones.

It does however need to be open for the rest of us to get out, if there's any trouble.
