Oi, eyeolas!!  Stop looking at Rhana's chest!! ;)

Back now - just didn't want to hold up last night's action, as I knew I'd be busy all evening watching NE whup the CPs! Go Brady! :D Yeah it was last Friday, but I've got Sky+ (DVR) :D

Right, were we playing AD&D, right?  And I'm now an undead half-elf sorceress, right? :D


Now, can someone remind me what these "aforementioned rods" are?  A link or a quote would be fine - I can't just find the original reference :shrug:

It's some kind of steel rods (I think) protruding from the wall along a corridor. Seems like "obvious trap" to me.

Wooden, not steel (and I think they're painted red). Think of monkey bars or even a ladder lying down along the floor (but a short distance above it, not high up for hanging and swinging off).

Peering into the darkness she spies an odd construction. About twenty feet down the corridor she spies a series of twelve wooden poles that span the corridor, each about ayard apart from it's neighbours, at a height of roughly a foot above the floor. Their ends are firmly secured into the walls. Beyond them the passage continues beyond the extent of her darkvision.

Actually, I was thinking Spider Climb, but if you want to think Electric Floor, you go right ahead :D

I have no idea what the Electric Floor spell does, though, so you'll have to fill me in!  :icon_mrgreen:

I think it's the one where you turn into a dalek, set off the sprinkler system then fly up in the air and shoot a power cable/box thing to electrocute all the squadies with just one shot (two if you had to shoot something to set off the sprinklers :p).

Why don't we all just step back and throw something heavy st the pressure plate on the floor and set off the trap and then we can move forward?

The body of a dead caveman, perhaps?  I'd like to be quite a few feet away, if you want to try that!

Do we have something lighter that I can be thrown from further away? Hey does a Migic missle have enough force to trip something like that?

I can think of a reason but I'm no a player (and given another factor it's not a very good reason, but I thought of a second reason too :p).

I once again feel the need to remind people that magic missile cannot target inanimate objects but must be aimed at "living" creatures.

Nope. Reason 1: Whatever it triggers might make a lot of noise which could attract stuff to your presence. The reason that's not a very good reason is because there's a bell already ringing but the new sound could still get something's attention.

Reason number 2: Whatever it triggers could damage the thing that you throw so you'd need to use something disposable.

That was my first thought.  The reason I suggested the caveman's body is that I see no other use for it, for us.

However, I just noticed that Balgin accidently commented that we were expected to approach from the other direction, so perhaps we should go around?
