Unfortunately that does mean that the gm has to be on every 5 minutes to say yes or no or traps set off etc

Balgin is usually good with the amount of time he is online, so updates come quick unless he is tied up with something else.

I'm just wondering why (forgotten name) maker of the dungeon would give us each 2gp if we aren't supposed to get out of here alive. If we get out we get 25 000 gp, so 2 doesn't matter at all, and if we die then we definately won't nead 2 gp. There must be something in here that can use gp. Maybe a really primitive vending machine?

It might have to do with Greek mythology. They would place two coins over the eyes of the dead so that they could pay Charon the toll in order to cross the river Styx. that is the only thing I can think of. Remember the assumption is that we will all die.

Yeah, being unemployed helps. However, now that all the qwebsites are selling off all their COnfrontation stuff, one of them apparently has a rare model the others don't stock any more (and I sent them an email and they said they had it in stock) so I'm putting together an order....

All the dice rolls for this game so far have been done using the hypertext d20 dice roller.

I'm on benefits. I have a minor mental disability. It's like dyslexia but with emotions so I can't always understand what people mean. It's like a very mild form of autism.

So basicaly (because it's a lifelong condition that's unlikely to change) I get paid not to work. That's fine by me because I'm not some busibody who always needs to be doing something, but it certainly limits things like travel expenses and my social life.

Bad fort save I'm afraid :( -5 con. I suggest he gets medical attention before making his second save as the lower con lowers his save even more.

The two darts he has recovered are fort save at 20, first time it's -d6 con, the second time it's -2d6 con.

:Doh!: Ouch

did I fail a reflex save aswell?

 :yeahthat: and I was thinking couldn't you have forced a luck roll too?

looking over to Ellion, trying to get his attention aswell.

Ellion is famle too  :icon_wink:

Traps either give you a reflex save or they make an attack roll. Attacking traps (scything blades, spring loaded darts etc) make an attack roll and unfortunately this one hit you (rolled your ac exactly :().

Yeah, big ouch. Hopefuly he'll survive 'though as I wasn't wanting anyone to perish this early in (in fact it'd be nice if most of the group would survivie the entire thing but I know how tough some of the encounters are).

There was one really bungled disarm roll so I ruled that part of Sarian was exposed to the flight path of the dart and so it got an attack roll. Oh, I forgot to roll damage for the actual dart itself. 2 damage (character sheet's updated).

As soon as I don't die I'm going to go get that dart and I am going to stab some really nasty monster and see how they feal about it (and try and get the other 4 darts from our boxes :))

EDIT: If you roll 8 or more for secondary damage I die, yay. Shame I'm not rolling, I would roll 2.
