Actually it's a great place for autistic people and others who have GREAT problems with interacting in real life. I read about a german guy who was gravely autistic. Basically he would turn and stare at a wall whenever some other person entered the room and people (including his parents) thought he was retarded as well. Then they found his stories in the computer (this was before internet) and through writing messages to him on his computer his parents could finally start communicating with him. And the stories got published in "Der Spiegel", one of Germanys biggest monthly magazines - which is where I read about it.

Sounds like Ruskin Mill to me. I studied there for four years myself (learning to adapt to polite society). We had all sorts there. In my last year and a half I often found myself supervising the other (less responsible) students and I got to spend the last 18 months in independant housing (the best "reality test" any of the students ever got was indy training where they got £35 a week to live on in a small cottage or a room at a hostel or something and at the end of every week someone'd come by, check their accounts, check they'd bought toilet paper & stuff and check the student knew what they were doing and how well they were coping, stuff like that).

Was the only danger from the pit falling due to the rope having been cut?

Yes and no (hard to explain that one). The only immediate danger was the cut rope, however there are many reasons why you might have come running back towards it (but I can think of a very specific one) in which case you might have rounded the corner, lost your balance and fallen into the pit. Then what was chasing you could've fallen in on top of you as well for added danger.

Nope, something on this side of the pit (and believe you me, if you don't miss that thing, you'll wish you had....).

I allways found the "Turn undead" ability rather silly.All Ellion has managed to do now is make it more difficult for Dekion to attack...
But she has it so she has to use it I figured.

But really when does it come in handy? You'll still have to get rid of those pesky undead so at best the ability is a pesky nuisance prolonging the fight.

If you had gotten initiative before the skeleton, it would have not been ablt to attack me, potentially knocking me out.

As you get higher in levels you become able to instantly destroy undead (if you have twice as many HD as them), an also one could always attack with ranged attacks. Or run.  :icon_eek:

The questions we should be asking are these:
Does it have dungeons?
Does it have dragons?
Does it have transients who kill things for money?  Do you roll a d20?

We don't run! It is funny but for some reason I totally forgot that it could be undead.

He means he wants to check the long hallway and down the stairs.

I am still waiting on the info for the weapon, scroll, and anything else. (unless you already updated it and I havent checked that thread yet)

"So guys, do we want to go down, of finish exploring this level of Baron Something-Witty's Deathtrap Dungeon?  I think we should see what else is on this level, in case there are any more gemstones.   Wasn't it the Wizard Yaztromo who said 'Anything that doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.'?"

Rhana smiles to herself, thinking of the time she met Yaztromo ...

Edited ever so slightly because Tenser is in Greyhawk, not Titan. The three wizards of Titan are Yaztromo, Nicodemus and that one with the strange oriental name that no-one can ever remember, Pen Tai Kora or something like that. Yaztromo lives in his tower on the southern edge of Darkwood Forest and Nicodemus lives a hermittic existance in a small hut tucked away under a bridge that spans one of the rivers that run through Port Blacksand, and he doesn't appreciate being disturbed by visitors nearly half as much as Yaztromo does.

I edited Blagins edit to make it yellow. It didn't seem to stand out enough from Keepers post.

Taking this discussion OOC ...

  In that case, why does Rhana have Melf's Acid Arrow?  :icon_eek: ;)
