1 Into the fire room... on Tue Oct 27, 2009 2:17 pm

The path up to the "fire room" is already cleared. No PC has been to the "cold room" though...

The party had no trouble getting to the "fire room" entrance.

Here's the current map:

Hmmm...the cold room and fire room appear so close together that we're going to alert the monsters in both rooms no matter what. Sonya recommends a "front heavy" formation with Thia and Miri (the ranged attackers) in the very back row; basically, trade Candelos and Thia in the formation. Sonya says that two of the melee types (perhaps Candelos and Sonya) move to block the passage between the cold and fire rooms.

Not seeing any other comments so I guess the party is following Sonya's lead...

Sonya and Candelos make their way back into the water room and head north. They enter a large room with doors to the east and north and an open entryway to the west.

The room is completely empty. The doors to the east are frost covered.

The rest of the party is waiting to the southwest.



What does the party want to do next...

Move forward to where we can see into the room for the people to the south.

The team to the south moves forward and sees:
Four stone monoliths are arranged around this large chamber. Great plumes of energy stream out of the monoliths and toward a central wall of arcane force.

Through the waves of energy you can barely see what looks like a headless humanoid female standing still.

Look similar to the Vyrellis statue?

The statue was large size, while this one is medium size.

It is very hard to see through the energy wall, especially at a distance...

Is the south team going to advance? There is no movement from whatever is in the energy field.

Are Sonya and Candelos going to advance with the party or hang back?

8 Sonya's Recommended Plan on Wed Oct 28, 2009 12:54 pm

Sonya will motion to Candelos to advance to the hallway between the fire and cold room. Sonya will watch the statue and walk w Candelos while Candelos watches mainly to the front.

Sonya will motion to the rest of the group to advance, maintaining the same distance from them as from Sonya/ Candelos. In otherwords, Sonya and Candelos are forming the point element, ahead of the mainbody of Kaddim, Quinn, Thia and Miri.

Thia will stay back towards the hallway (able to see most of the room) to provide cover while actively scanning the area with her perception. If we aren't threatened, she will study the prison to see if there is a lock or some other mechanism that turns off the energy.

As Candelos enters the hallway that ajoins the "fire room"

Vyrellis gasps...
My physical form is trapped within this arcane prison.

For years I have waited for the magic that wards it to weaken. That time has come. Free my body; and together we can escape this horrid place.

Vyrellis really wants Candelos to free her body somehow.

Candelos will ask Vyrellis: is that your body surounded by the fire columns?
If so, how do we free her body?

Vyrellis says she doesn't know, she's never been to this room before. Maybe someone can examine the pillars.

14 Pillars on Thu Oct 29, 2009 7:02 pm

Sonya will ask Candelos and the orb (if it has perception) to assist her (Sonya) in taking a look at the nearest pillar...

15 Re: Into the fire room... on Fri Oct 30, 2009 8:15 am

Sonya and Candelos move adjacent to the NE pillar in order to take a closer look at it.

Here's what Candelos notices:
1. Sonya isn't very helpful in her helping...
2. There are scorch marks on the pillars from the energy emanating from the top of the pillars. It looks like the energy use to incompase the entire pillars and streach all the way to the pillars to the south and west. The energy still goes to the other pillars, but the pillars themselves are exposed.
3. The energy output from the top of the pillars is fire, thunder, and lightning.
4. There seems to be a crystal orb at the top of the pillars that the energy is coming from.

What next?

So, there is a crystal orb at the top of each pillar? Does it seem reasonable that a hard blow would have a chance of breaking a crystal orb?

Does the fire/ thunder/ lighting energy extend from the top of the pillars where the orb(s) is/are all the way to the ground? e.g. Could someone dive "under" the energy? IOW, does the energy basically form a continious barrier from the floor all the way to the top of the pillars? How high is the top of the pillar; any chance that someone could jump over the barrier?

Hmm, my post didn't register. Thia will help do the checking and searching starting from the Southwest pillar.

Yes, there is a crystal orb on the top of each pillar. The energy field extends all the way to the floor. It looks like it use to encompass the pillars which wouldn't allow for someone to climb up.

You think a hard blow would break the orb, but you don't know what would happen if the orb was broken...

It looks like someone could climb to the top of a pillar (20' up), DC 18 Athletics. On a miss, there's a good chance they'll take damage from the energy field.

Looks like Thia has a 50% chance to make it up with a +8 in Athletics. Acrobatics is much better though.

Would a bow shot be a viable way to break the orb?

Thia fires a few shots at an orb...
Most of the arrows are fried before they can hit. Those that make it through deflect off.

Looks like bludgeoning damage it is which isn't Thia's cup of tea. Anyone else?

Sonya is trained in Athletics and carries a nice heavy axe. She'll give it a try...

Sonya attempts to climb the NE pillar:
Athletics check 2+11=13 failed. Sonya falls and takes 16hp of damage.

Sonya makes a second attempt...
Athletics check 12+11=23 success.

Sonya uses her heavy axe and easily shatters the crystal orb. The energy flowing between the pillars stops and the body of Vyrellis falls to the ground.

Vyrellis to Candelos (pleading):
"Check my body... See if I can be ressurected."

Sonya may have only taken 6hp of falling damage. Looking into how the rolls take place.

The pillar is 20' up and climbing up takes two move actions since you move at 1/2 speed. Do you roll at the end of each move action? Or do you roll at the goal?

I initially rolled when Sonya was 20' up, but that would be two move actions.

If it is one, then...
1st move check failed (13) and Sonya would fall 10' for 6hp
2nd move check succeeded (23), Sonya is now 10' up
3rd move check succedded (31), Sonya is on the top 20' up.

wouldn't the rolls be iterative, otherwise how would the DM know where the failure had taken place?
