Balgin are all o fthe character threads up to date with regard to the correct hit point totals?

Yes. The equipment lists might not be quite up to date but the damage totals are (including the recent healing Ellion got backdated).

It's not so much of a lag as other people simply not posting. I might need to 3 day rule someone soon.

I think my equipment totals should be fine. I have only used 1 bolt for my cross bow and I had already added the two magic items I got so far (the axe and ring).

I'm not trying to put you guys off crawling down the pipe. I'm just suggesting that it'd be wise to send the person with the least wounds or the best fortitude save down there.

Rules stuff: there'll be no chance of infected wounds for crawling in the pipe. I was just trying to offer you guys a little roleplaying opportunity to help you decide who should go down there (if anyone).


I already expressed (in character) that I want to go the other way. I took a cue from the guy with one hand running the other way and am staying with it. Plus me, games, and sewers have never worked well together so I am also biased.

I think I need to drop a little spoiler. How do I do the white spoiler thing?

To write a spoiler you:

1)  hit reply

2)  in the reply window type what you want to be the spoiler

3)  highlight the text
4)  go to the icon above and click on the one that looks like this

5)  submit

Spoiler: [spoiler]One of the gems you need to escape the dungeon is in that sewer pipe. Since there are a few points of no return coming up ahead I don't want you guys making it all the way to the end and cursing yourselves because you starve to death due to being unable to unlock the exit. (Of course many of the encounters on the way to the exit are deadly enough so there's no garauntee you'll all make it there alive :)).[/spoiler]

So don't be  awuss and get in there (send someone with few wounds, a good fortitude save, good tumble/climb abilities or one of the girls with darkvision or low light vision because it's dark in that there tunnel :p.

The second one's pretty hard to kill as well (but for a very different reason). Unfortunately the d20 version of him is very different to the original one. The original one with his leather armour and poisoned darts of autokill (in case the hero picked a fight with him) works well in solo play but for group play I'd say the d20 version of him is better (with armour and a close combat weapon).

Of course the aim is not to fight him but the d20 version is better if a group tries to bundle him so I'll decide which I want to use when the time comes.

Yeah, it's hard to explain but basicaly the equipment of the second trialmaster is where the d20 version significantly deviates from the original source adventure (they also chanegd the 3rd trialmaster's race which I can easily switch back but basicaly the 2nd trialmaster's a big change although it doesn't actualy affect his role in the adventure in any way (it just changes a solo autokill to a group really tough fight).

Rhana relieves Sarian of the new Gemstone and puts it in her pack before ushering everyone along behind Aurum.

Aurum is in the other game :icon_wink: I bet we could use his fire breathing.
