1 Level Up? on Thu Dec 17, 2009 11:26 am

Teramotos wrote:
Instead of the "standard" order, Sonya suggests that Candelos take point with Thia. Miri and Sonya next and Kaddim in the rear... thoughts?

The party opens the doors to the stair well and see:
A wide set of stairs rise before you, up into the gloom above. The stairs wrap around the walls of the room, leaving a deep pit in the middle.

Is the order shown correct?



How will the party proceed?

The party can take turns as you like or I can roll iniative and each PC can take a turn or delay. Or you can take turns (for now...) according to your spot in the party.

I would think taking turns in the order.
I would hope Thia whould be checking for trap on the floor would be first.

Sounds good. Shouldn't Kaddim have more hits, but less surges? He used he last one maximizing Sonya's +2d6.

Also, if there's an encounter here where the pit is, it's probably with a creature that can slide. Before we approach the first landing, Miri will pull out her rope from her standard adventuring pack and tie loops for all of us to stay together. As we go up, after Thia checks for traps, Miri will be closest to the pit side & cast 'light' as far down the pit as possible to see what we can. Can we see what's down there or how far it goes?

As for turns, we'll all fall in line after Thia's initiative so she can check for traps ahead of us.

Also... "level up" is a very misleading title for the thread! :-/

It should be "upstairs" or the like!

Intensional... That's why I put a question mark at the end...

Does everyone want to be tied together as Miri is suggesting? How will you be tied? Around the waist, just holding a loop?

Will Candelos have the orb in hand or stowed away?

Stowed away since she's a little pissed off at us.
Around the waist?

Thia will definitely check for traps but isn't sure she wants to be tethered. If everyone thinks its a good idea then she will do so but she likes to have mobility.

I say no tethering. Too hard to maneuver for flanking and for the squishies to run from the bad guys.

...I'll hold a loop, but no ropes around the waist. Yeah, in order of how we're standing is good.

Yeah, let's all wrap an arm around a loop. That way we can release easily if we want to spread out, and we're prepared if we get attacked by something that can slide us into the pit.

Thia and Candelos uses their passive perception and there is nothing out of the ordinary about the first flight of stairs. The party moves up cautiously to the first landing.

From where the party is they can see that each flight of stairs leads to a small landing which is 10' higher than the next.

The forth flight of stairs looks to be 20' in height. So,
If you fall into the pit from where the PCs currently are (landing #1) you fall 30'
Landing #2 40'
Landing #3 50'
Landing #4 70'

Miri casts a light into the pit and determines that it is roughly 30' deep.

At the second flight of stairs Thia notices seems in the stairs, Candelos doesn't see anything with his passive perception. Both actively search and do not detect any traps.



Move up to the next landing?

Seams in the stair? Where? At the base of each step? What are stairs made of?

The stairs are made of stone.

The "seems" are more like tiles. The stairs are 20' wide, instead of a solid piece of stone, there seems to be four 5' wide tiles. Until Thia pointed it out everyone thought it was a single piece of stone. Think of it as four cubes that make up each step.

That seems odd, I will take a little more time to check it out and if someone can aid me that would be great.

16 Re: Level Up? on Fri Dec 18, 2009 1:21 pm

Yeah, this is worth checking out. I'll try "aid another" to add + 2.

Even with Sonya's help, Thia was unable to see anything out of the ordinary.

I'll be up in the mountains at Winter Camp most of the weekend. Anyone who wants to can play Sonya until Kobe and I return on Sunday late afternoon.

What does the party want to do?

After a round of searching Candelos and Thia don't know what the seems are.

We'll climb the stairs following Thia, making sure to step in the exact same stones she does.

Here's where I currently have the party...



As soon as Thia steps on the first stair, a trap she didn't detect is triggered.

Each section of the stairs take turns flattening (kinda like someone running their hand along a piano keyboard).

Thia is attacked by the stairs 17 vs Ref miss. Thia is shifted one square west. The stairs are now considered difficult terrain and continue their shifting.

Where does Thia want to do now? Continue up? Move down off the stairs? So far she's only used 1 square of movement.

Back off the trap.

I will study the trap and see if there is any way to disable it.

So do you mean the Stairs make it so you shift towards the pit?
