Brain In A Jar Chat

DMSoft: where are you approx 2 days after the last game in world
Ichai: chillin' at the library and reading the stuff we stole, while my unseen crafter cranks out my magic items
Baltasar is reading, feet up and a bottle of bourbon ice tea at his side.
DMSoft: hmm, that's gonna be a tough place to start
DMSoft: "Ah, Baltasar."-Hiroshi
Baltasar: (( could have alth come to notify me that he's going to be out of town ))
Baltasar: (( cause or have hiroshi come ))
Baltasar: (( -cause ))
DMSoft: "Do you know the Dragon Caller, Rydia?"
Baltasar sets aside his materials and greets Hiroshi.
Baltasar: "Yes, I've worked with her a few times."
DMSoft: "I have a favor to ask you."-Hiroshi
DMSoft: "Can you watch over her when you are in dragonport?"
Baltasar is a slightly surprised but agrees, "Certainly. Is there any particular reason why?"
DMSoft: "I have reason to believe the Dragon Slayers are active again."
DMSoft: "They would not hesitate to kill her…poor girl."
Baltasar: knowledge:history, what do I know about dragon slayers: [1d20+5+1+3+2] => [2,5,1,3,2] = (13)
Baltasar: (( faaaaaail ))
DMSoft: (did you include +2 library?0
Baltasar: (( i included my book, same source, doesn't stack? ))
DMSoft: (yeah, forgot)
DMSoft: (you have no idea, but you suspect they kill dragons.)
Baltasar: "I'm afraid I am not familiar with that group. Is there anything I should know?"
DMSoft: "The Dragon Slayers are an old clan who decided that all dragons are evil and almost wiped them out a few thousand years ago."
DMSoft: "They attempted to take down the Dragon Heart with powerful magic."
Baltasar looks slightly annoyed at that, "That's… ambitious yet stupid."
DMSoft: "it was a multi-prime-al effort"
DMSoft: (knowledge planes)
Baltasar: know:planes [1d20+11] => [3,11] = (14)
DMSoft: (one short)
Baltasar: (( wtf is with my rolls today? ))
Baltasar: (( knew i should have made that +int item first :P ))
DMSoft: "So, will you help?"-hiroshi
Siam (enter): 09:41
Baltasar: "Of course, I would be happy to."
DMSoft: "Thank you, btw did you want to become a knowledge buster, or Book Wurm?"-hiroshi
Baltasar: "I am afraid I must decline the honor. I would not feel comfortable joining any organization at the present."
DMSoft: "I see, well if you change your mind."-hiroshi
DMSoft: (alth said 30 minutes 45 minutes ago)
Baltasar: "You will be the first to know"
Baltasar: (( *shrug* he'll be back ))
Siam: (or will he :O)
DMSoft: (if you want to jump in siam, you are welcome)
Andraste: (*cracks knuckles*)
Gabriel Holt: (*cracks knuckles*) *repost*
Gabriel Holt: (Sure)
DMSoft: (anyone who is black marches can join)
DMSoft: *gabriel decides to explore the huge floating mass above dragonport north
Gabriel Holt: "Look at that," he says, looking up.
DMSoft: "Are you going to the library then?" says a cleric dressed in armor next to a floating disk that's filling with people
Gabriel Holt: "Thats a library? Whats inside?" he asks the cleric.
Altharid: (will join in 5 minutes)
DMSoft: *gabriel hears screams of excitement from above
DMSoft: *they get louder, then less so, then louder again
Gabriel Holt: "That is probably the most excitement I've heard for a Library," he says.
Gabriel Holt: "You sure it isn't a travelling circus?"
DMSoft: "that the "bungie" jumping. You should stay away from that."-buster cleric
DMSoft: "The library is not associated with that."-buster
Gabriel Holt: "Ugh, alright. So whats inside that library?"
Gabriel Holt: "Aside from loads of books."
DMSoft: "Oh, aren't books enough?"-buster
DMSoft: *the buster notions to the floating disk. "last call buddy"
DMSoft: "you'll have to wait 5 minutes for the next one."
Gabriel Holt: "Sure, nothing better to do today," he says, getting on.
DMSoft: *the disk wisks you up 200'(which I had wrong in the last game)
DMSoft: *you are in the courtyard. there is a line to the right.
DMSoft: *the entrance to the library is strait ahead*
Gabriel Holt looks around him, still wondering what the fuss was about.
DMSoft: "the library is that way."-the buster points. "stay away from the line on the right."
Baltasar begins cleaning up his workspace, the spell having completed Altharid's guisarme
Gabriel Holt walks up to the Library, "Alright, hope theres something worth reading there."
Altharid: (Balt … you are at your place… or somewhere else ?)
DMSoft: (knowledge planes and arcana and spellcraft)
DMSoft: *altharid takes a floating disk and is with holt
Baltasar drains the last of his tea and exits his quarters, donning his hat and cloak, while hefting the wrapped weapon over a shoulder.
DMSoft: *walking into the library
DMSoft: (knowledge planes and arcana and spellcraft for those who haven't been here)
Altharid: (kk … can summarize the plot a little bit ?)
DMSoft: (it's just intro to the library, no plot as of yet)
Altharid: (kk)
Baltasar enters the lobby, and spots Alth and Holt heading toward him.
DMSoft: (unless you want to bungie jump or meet balt)
Altharid: (Altharid went there to do some research)
Baltasar: "Ahh, I was just coming to find you."
Altharid: "Greetings… employer"
DMSoft: *altharid, the whisperer is blind here
DMSoft: *his mindsight picks up int 120
Baltasar spins the guisarme around and offers it to Altharid butt-first.
Baltasar: "All done."
Altharid: (we are now kinda fused :P he's my psicrystal after all… whether he likes it or not)
DMSoft: *it's overwhelming smart in here)
Flamester (enter): 09:57
Flamester (exit): 09:57
Altharid: "Splendid… work… as always" *observes the armament closesly
Altharid: *closely
DMSoft: perception checks
Altharid: Skills: Perception [1d20+13] => [16,13] = (29)
Baltasar: perception: [1d20+16] => [12,16] = (28)
Altharid: (the whisperer aids me)
DMSoft: *you see a halfling girl and an owl*
Altharid: [1d20+11] => [2,11] = (13)
DMSoft: *it looks like gin's sister*
DMSoft: *she wanders up to you.
Baltasar raises an eyebrow at the halfling.
DMSoft: cough cough…."can you help me find my brother?"….cough
Gabriel Holt shimmies down over to the main group, "Fancy seeing you both here again."
Altharid: (wait it was int 120 ? what was the type - he also detects it)
Altharid: (brb)
Baltasar nods hello toward Holt before turning to the girl, "Where'd you lose him?"
DMSoft: (type was disembodied spirit…hints of dragon)
DMSoft: "He was at the wedding when you guys were fighting and somebody grabbed him"
Baltasar: "Did you see who?
Altharid: (kk… sorry gonna be AFK for 3 minutes… something random IRL happened)
DMSoft: *she goes on to describe a man in black with a weird symbol on his cloak
Baltasar: (( do i recognize the symbol from her description? ))
DMSoft: *yes, the necromantic college symbol
Gabriel Holt: "When and where did this happen?"
DMSoft: "At the wedding of the great heroe Hector"
Baltasar: (( holt, she explained it after you walked up ))
Baltasar: (( oh, holt wasn't there, nvm ))
DMSoft: "I have no money"-cough cough
DMSoft: "Please help!" cough
Baltasar smiles at her, "Don't worry, we'll find him, right Holt?"
Gabriel Holt: "Well, we could try tracking yes."
Gabriel Holt: "Judging by the symbol, we should try the necromatic college."
DMSoft: *the little girl faints. Baltasar now sees a magical aura around her
Baltasar smirks at Altharid and mutters, "If only to rub it in his face when we rescue his ass."
Baltasar attempts to catch the girl: dex check [1d20+4] => [20,4] = (24)
DMSoft: *the librarians see this, but don't seem to care
Gabriel Holt: (Way to blow a 20!)
Baltasar: (( heh ))
DMSoft: (you catch her)
Gabriel Holt: "Anyone know whats wrong with her?"
Baltasar: (( 2s and 3s earlier, get a nat 20 to catch a little girl ))
DMSoft: (spellcraft balt)
Baltasar: spellcraft: [1d20+18] => [16,18] = (34)
DMSoft: (school is necromancy and it's moderate)
Baltasar: (( what's the approximate caster level for moderate? ))
DMSoft: *the owl flys to a bookshelf
DMSoft: (the caster level is 8-11 for this one)
Baltasar: (( would i need a break enchantment, or would dispel magic suffice? ))
DMSoft: (dispel magic would work)
Baltasar looks up to see where the owl went.
DMSoft: *It just sits on the bookshelf and watches*
Baltasar: Dispel Magic magic check: [1d20+6] => [6,6] = (12)
Baltasar: (( yeah, that's good >_> ))
DMSoft: (you fail to dispel it)
Baltasar: "This is beyond me, we should get her to one of the priests."
Gabriel Holt: "I think we should head down and go check out a temple or something."
Gabriel Holt nods at Balt, and waits for one of them floating disc thingies to come back.
Baltasar hefts the halfling girl and carries her back into the library, "No, this way."
Altharid: (kk back)
Baltasar: "I know the priests here, they can probably fix this."
Baltasar looks around for any librarian he knows is powerful enough.
DMSoft: *you find Glory Bookheart
DMSoft: "yes Baltasar?"-glory
Baltasar: "Ah Mrs. Ohba, we have need of your assistance."
Baltasar: "This girl appears to have a malicious spell placed on her, she just fainted in the lobby."
DMSoft: "What do you need?"
DMSoft: "Oh, let me take a look"
DMSoft: "yes, I see. Hmm"
DMSoft: *she begins casting spells. Remove curse you assume
DMSoft: *the aura disappears
DMSoft: "there you go. How did this happen?"
Altharid observes the works of magic
Baltasar: "We are unsure, she's the sister of an acquaintance who has disappeared."
Baltasar: "She came to use looking for help."
Baltasar: *us
DMSoft: "A decently strong necromancer cast that one."
DMSoft: "I cannot abide a necromancer"
Baltasar narrows his eyes slightly.
Baltasar: "I only know of a few necromancers near here."
Baltasar: "And none of them would cast something like this, either because they are too weak or too powerful."
DMSoft: "You should find him and….punish him."
Baltasar grins at this.
Baltasar: "Well, we happen to be very good at that."
DMSoft: "You should punish all necromancers with the death they so love."
Baltasar: "Can I ask you to take care of her for a while?"
Altharid is clearly amused
DMSoft: "We will watch her."
Baltasar: "My thanks to you."
DMSoft: "Bring me back information about the necromancer and I will reward you."
Baltasar nods respectfully to Glory, and tips his hat before leading the way out of the library.
Baltasar: "Right. Leads."
Altharid: "A powerful dragon-like spirit is dwelling here… I cannot even begin to comprehend its superior intellect"
Altharid: -to Balt
DMSoft: *outside you see the line for bungie and the disks*
Baltasar smirks, "So it's about a match for me then?"
Altharid: (detects int of Balt via Mindsight)
Baltasar: (( 21, simply because i haven't fninshed the +6 int hat ))
Baltasar: "So, we know Gin was last seen at the wedding."
The Whisperer: "That acursed… dragon muting me like that… unforgivable !"
Altharid: "Whisperer… silence !"
Baltasar: "We also know that someone affiliated with the College snatched him."
Baltasar: "That pairs up nicely with his sister's curse, it's unlikely that any of the powerful necromancers we've met would bother with a halfling boy."
DMSoft: (you can make gather info rolls, I forget which skill)
Baltasar: "So odds are, if we find information on his kidnapper, we'll find information on the one who cast the curse."
Baltasar steps lightly off the disc they rode to the ground, "Let's go to work."
DMSoft: *the knowledge busters bow to balt
Altharid: "About that spirit… I believe that you will have to expand your already immense cerebrum capabilites significally … to match him… to say it lightly"
Altharid: "He's out of our league"
Baltasar meets with the various contacts he's made (off-screen) in his time in dragonport: gather info [1d20+8+5] => [7,8,5] = (20)
DMSoft: (Baltasar, you find out that the boy was seen in the country side, near the manor from last game)
Baltasar: (( cast an eagle's splendor and skill enh to boost my check ))
Baltasar gets an accurate description of the location he was last seen.
Gabriel Holt: ((Excuse me folks, gotta leave. Need to attend to some matters)
Baltasar: (( mostly so we don't have to use track, which i don't believe any of us have ))
Baltasar: (( cya dude ))
Siam is creating room 'Warhammer Fantasy-Recruiting.'
Siam (exit): 10:20
DMSoft: (the contacts say it was on the manor grounds)
Baltasar: (( oooer ))
Baltasar: "Well, it looks like we need to make a visit to Three."
DMSoft: *you run into three on the road
DMSoft: in dragonport
DMSoft: "I'm buying a haversack!"-the elf says
The Whisperer: "I hate manors… they can be haunted by corporeal undead menace… and… GHOSTS !" (hides in Alth's backpack)
Altharid: "… coward"
Baltasar greets him politely, but refrains from telling him that we're investigating the mansion.
DMSoft: (geh geh geh ghosts)
DMSoft: *he seems to be oblivious that he left the mansion unguarded
Baltasar: (( well, to be fair, Lurch is there ))
DMSoft: *unguarded
Altharid forces The whisperer to come back and act as the sentry he has becone
DMSoft: *he leaves you and goes to a ghop
DMSoft: *shop
Altharid: "Wll you stop bugging me about those undead freaks ?"
Altharid: "You kept polluting my mind… with that pathetic feat of yours…. for the last few days"
Altharid: *fear
DMSoft: (you may move whereever)
The Whisperer: "…."
Baltasar: *The pair travel quickly out of the city and reaches the mansion* ((unless we find something hostile or interesting first))
DMSoft: *you arrive at the mansion, it is mid day
DMSoft: (perception checks)
Altharid: (mindsight 30ft)
DMSoft: (perception)
Altharid: Skills: Perception [1d20+13] => [7,13] = (20)
Baltasar: perception: [1d20+15] => [11,15] = (26)
Altharid: (whisperer aids me)
Altharid: [1d20+11] => [3,11] = (14)
DMSoft: [1d20+3] => [1,3] = (4)
Altharid: (heh auto success)
Baltasar: (( i'm taking a -1 penalty on that, cause i have to wear my goggles outside during the day :\ ))
DMSoft: *you see something on the roof*
DMSoft: The creature before you is a horrid amalgam of rotting fl esh bound
to twisted limbs. It walks on all four of its awkward appendages,
and great bands of black iron seem to hold the various pieces of
putrid tissue together.
Baltasar unslings his crossbow, sighting through the scope at the thing.
Altharid stops in his tracks
Altharid: "Leave it to me"
DMSoft: *you see another one in the yard
Baltasar: "Well that's something you don't see every day."
Baltasar: know:religion [1d20+13] => [10,13] = (23) to identify
Altharid: "The whisperer will not shut his trap till I prove that I can overcome those freaks"
Baltasar: "Hold. Let's figure out what we're dealing with first."
DMSoft: it's a necrosis carnex, a really nasty undead that explodes when you kill it
Altharid: "Hmmm"
DMSoft: powerful necromancers use them as sentries
Baltasar: "Well, you may wish to attack this one from a distance."
Altharid: "Lets do this"
Baltasar: "Also, we probably have more company tha just them. Smarter than them as well."
Altharid: Astral Construct (1 round) *Altharid leans back and spits a small globe of glowing ectoplasm which instantly takes a shape of armored humoid with glowing red eyes and hair*
Baltasar infuses Bane(Undead) and Magebane on both his and altharid's weapons
Baltasar: (( srsly, hold up ))
Baltasar infuses Armor Enhancement(Greater Healing Armor) on altharid's chain shirt
Baltasar infuses Greater Armor enhancement on his own shirt
Altharid: "Heh arent you just amusing Hungerer… interfering with my manifestations ?"
DMSoft: *the carnexes seem uninterested in you
Baltasar: (( the greater healing armor is 2/day healing 3d8+15 ))
Baltasar: (( so you've got two healing shots ))
DMSoft: *they are looking for something you think*
Altharid: ((kk I know))
Baltasar also infuses another Armor Enhancement(+3 AC) to alth's shirt
Baltasar: (( and yes, that stacks with your current bonus ))
Altharid: (good)
Altharid: (21 AC is not really impressive on this level anyway :P)
Altharid directs his astral construct to attack the one not on the roof
Baltasar: (( do the thingies have any weaknesses or immunities that i would know of? ))
DMSoft: *they are undead immunities
Baltasar: (( need to know if i should swap out for my silver bolts, or use fire ))
DMSoft: *vunerable to good
DMSoft: *you aren't sure about their actual attacks
Altharid: (the AC charges)
Altharid: (It is flying)
DMSoft: *free standard surprise for you guys, they don't seem to care about you
Baltasar readies an action to shoot the one on the roof if it moves
Altharid: [1d20+9] => [2,9] = (11)
Altharid: (darn it)
Altharid: (that was AC)
DMSoft: (ah, you can attack any time)
Altharid: Expansion (std action) *Altharid for a moment projects crimson aura which envolopes him and in a blink of an eye the character grows to a size rivaling that of the giants*
Altharid: (end of my actions 20ft reach)
DMSoft: (the one in the yard is 30' away
DMSoft: (the roof one is 60')
Altharid: (kk I have used my actions though)
DMSoft: (initiative then)
DMSoft: [1d20+3] => [15,3] = (18)
Altharid: Initiative: [1d20+7] => [12,7] = (19)
Baltasar is going to let Alth do the fighting unless he needs to intervene
Baltasar: init: [1d20+8] => [12,8] = (20)
Altharid: (AC will move on my round)
DMSoft: go alth
Baltasar keeps a readied action to shoot the one on the roof if it moves
Altharid: (the AC goes into flanking possition)
Altharid: [1d20+7] => [6,7] = (13)
DMSoft: (ff is 18 for these guys)
Altharid: (geh another miss by the AC I guess)
Altharid: (charge on the undead by altharid)
Baltasar: (( are you including your bane bonus? ))
Altharid: Attacks: +1 Bane Guisarme [1d20+11] => [4,11] = (15), damage [4d6+10] => [3,3,4,3,10] = (23)
Altharid: (+2 from charge +2 from flanking)
DMSoft: (miss)
DMSoft: (hit)
Altharid: (wounded … destroyed ?)
DMSoft: (looks to be wounded)
DMSoft: (you notice a blue tint to them)
DMSoft: (and feel unnatural cold)
Altharid: (spell effect ? or supernatural ability …?)
Altharid: (if I have to save)
DMSoft: supernatural
Altharid: (kk)
DMSoft: (they are undead with int 3)
Altharid: (I cannot detect undead with mind-sight anyway)
DMSoft: hold up, jsut have to apply a template
DMSoft: k, they attack alth
DMSoft: AoO
Altharid: (2 oos)
Baltasar: (( both? ))
Altharid: (1 from me one from ac)
DMSoft: (no, just the one)
DMSoft: (the other one jumps off teh roof)
Altharid: (AC aoo)
Baltasar shoots at the one on the roof
Altharid: [1d20+7] => [9,7] = (16)
Baltasar: (( also, i don't suppose these guys have any SLAs? ))
DMSoft: (25 is AoO ac)
Altharid: (heh miss frenzy I see)
DMSoft: (you didn't roll high enough to iknow)
Altharid: Attacks: +1 Bane Guisarme [1d20+11] => [12,11] = (23), damage [4d6+10] => [6,5,2,3,10] = (26)
Baltasar: (( i'm asking because it affects my attack and damage rolls ))
Altharid: (great)
Baltasar: (( if they have them, magebane stacks ))
DMSoft: (they have su's)
DMSoft: (no magebane)
Baltasar: (( which doesn't trigger magebane :\ ))
Baltasar: +1 Bane Heavy Crossbow: Attack [1d20+6+4+1+2] => [16,6,4,1,2] = (29), Damage [1d10+3+2d6] => [1,3,1,4] = (9)

Altharid: (no hit)
Altharid: (miss)
DMSoft: (k, go then)
Altharid: (or sorry actually a hit I got expanded)
DMSoft: (balt, which one did you hit?)
Altharid: (-2 dex -1 size to ac)
Baltasar: (( i was shooting at the one from the roof ))
Baltasar: (( as soon as it moved ))
DMSoft: (k, he's on the ground approaching alth)
DMSoft: (looks unhurt pretty much)
Baltasar: (( what's its strength, approximately? ))
DMSoft: (you guys can go, str is 12)
Altharid: (dimension swap with AC when it attacks me)
DMSoft: (you know they are built for speed, not power)
Altharid: (sorry forgot that but thats an imm action)
Altharid: Dimension Swap (imm action) *Altharids eyes flash fiercely red for a brief moment and it takes you a moment to notice a sudden change in the battlefield's layout*
Baltasar pops off a Tanglefoot bag at the one from the roof: Ranged Touch Attack [1d20+5+4] => [7,5,4] = (16)
DMSoft: (miss balt)
DMSoft: (touch is 17)
Baltasar: (( on a touch attack? ))
Baltasar: (( cause that really sucks ))
Baltasar: (( so we're looking at ~24 AC ))
DMSoft: (built for speed)
Baltasar: (( err, 24 dex ))
Baltasar: (( oh! ))
DMSoft: (you're looking at ane extreme encounter)
Baltasar: (( i forgot to update my macro ))
Baltasar: (( i have 6 BAB, so i did get 17 ))
Baltasar: (( the first bonus from that attack is my bab ))
DMSoft: (k, what the dc of tanglefoot?)
Baltasar: (( :D ))
Baltasar: reflex DC 15 or be glued
Baltasar: (( no save vs the other penalties ))
DMSoft: [1d20+4] => [7,4] = (11)
Baltasar: (( sweet… ))
Altharid: (pwnd)
DMSoft: (roof one is glued)
Baltasar: (( he's now taking a -2 attack, and -4 dex ))
DMSoft: (k, i'm ignoring the malign aura on these guys.)
Baltasar: (( and the duration is [2d4] => [2,3] = (5) rounds before it breaks ))
DMSoft: (k)

Altharid: (+4 from flanking and charge)
DMSoft: that one looks hurt
Altharid: (kk)
Baltasar calls to Altharid, "You want me to finish off the second one, or save it for you?"
Altharid: "You've said that they explode… I shall do it from a distance"
DMSoft: *baltasar notices the trapped one is easily able to freeze teh tanglefoot bag off*
DMSoft: *it breaks it like a bitch*
Baltasar: "Hell take it.."
DMSoft: other one attacks [1d20+5] => [5,5] = (10) touch on alth

Karma: ((> > what's going on?))
DMSoft: (ac is 21)
Altharid: (altharid charges the flanked one)
Altharid: (kk)
Baltasar: (( does the tangled one still have the penalties, or did it get all the adhesive off? ))
Altharid: Attacks: +1 Bane Guisarme [1d20+11] => [11,11] = (22), damage [4d6+10] => [1,6,1,3,10] = (21)
DMSoft: (it froze it and broke it)
DMSoft: (anything it touches freezes.)
Altharid: (+4 from charge and flanking)
Baltasar grins at this.
DMSoft: (altharid kills the carnex…it explodes)
Altharid: (I'm 20ft away from it)
Baltasar launches an Alchemist's Fire.

DMSoft: (you are)
Altharid: Saving Throws: Reflex [1d20+0] => [6,0] = (6)
Altharid: (heh full dmg)
DMSoft: (reflex or 12 damage…6 if no evasion)
Altharid: "Cursed thing… - spits a little bit of blood"
Baltasar: (( mostly because i currently have a perfect record for no damage so far ))
DMSoft: (reflex is 15)
Altharid: "Good blast radius though"
DMSoft: (construct exist?)

DMSoft: (it seems to be almost dead, but attacks [1d20+5] => [17,5] = (22) touch_
Altharid: (dimension swap)
Altharid: (hit astral construct)
Altharid: *hits
DMSoft: [1d6+4] => [3,4] = (7) neg [1d6] => [5] = (5) cold
Altharid: (so it has 28 hp now)
DMSoft: (go)
Baltasar: "Get out of there, I'm gonna finish it."
Baltasar: (( also, damn… ))
Baltasar: (( i could have been making a full attack ))
Altharid: (moves outside blast radius and manifests entangling ectoplasm)
Altharid: [1d20+2] => [17,2] = (19) ranged touch
DMSoft: [1d20+4] => [13,4] = (17) ref
Baltasar shoots the carnex in the face: +1 Bane Heavy Crossbow: Attack [1d20+6+4+1+2] => [8,6,4,1,2] = (21), Damage [1d10+3+2d6] => [9,3,3,2] = (17)
Altharid: (it is entangled without save)
DMSoft: (k)
DMSoft: (balt kills it)
Altharid: (-4 dex -2 attack half speed)
Altharid: Entangling Ectoplasm [std action] => std action *Altharid leans back and spits a sphere of glowing ectoplasm which entangles his foe upon impact*
DMSoft: (it explodes but you moved out of radius)
Altharid: (construct moved also)
DMSoft: (you notice the grass is frozen)
Baltasar: "Well, that was bracing."
Altharid: (it has 3 rounds to live anyway :P)
DMSoft: *bones litter the area. These were some interesting scouts
DMSoft: *if those were the scouts….
Baltasar approaches the remains cautiously.
Baltasar: "Sentries, more like."
Altharid: "Hmm maybe those… things… were sent by our college 'friens' "
Baltasar sighs slightly.
Altharid: *friends
Baltasar: "I hate clearing a dwelling."
DMSoft: *you explore the area*
Baltasar: "It's always more difficult than it needs to be."
Altharid: (did they explde completely leaving no bones or other stuff ?)
DMSoft: *you find a hole that the carnex was digging*
Baltasar bags up some choice bits of the carnexes
DMSoft: (you have bones alth)
Altharid: (good)
DMSoft: (they explode and leave dead guts)
Altharid observes… the bone
DMSoft: (the bones are cold to the touch)
Baltasar gathers some bones and puts the organs in a jar, looking for a skull.
DMSoft: (they have a blue tint)
Altharid grabs one of the bones
Baltasar: "I have a wizard's lab, it needs a skull."
DMSoft: (balt notices the stich work is perfect)
Altharid concentrates a little bit
Altharid: "I see now…. so this is how it is"
Baltasar examines the hole.
DMSoft: *in the hole, you find a chest*
Baltasar uses detect magic and search on the chest: [1d20+15] => [10,15] = (25)
Altharid: "How could I miss that potential hidden within me ?"
DMSoft: (no magic, no visible traps)
Baltasar: (( hmm, i always forget i can take 20 on search ))
Baltasar: (( locked? ))
DMSoft: (yes)]DMSoft: (chest is 6"x12")
Altharid concentrates a red aura envelopes him
DMSoft: (weighs 15lbs)
Baltasar points his Magic Screwdriver at the lock, fiddling with it a moment before it clicks open.
Altharid focuses on the bone… turns it into a focus for his newfound powers
DMSoft: *the chest opens and you see money
DMSoft: "3000 gp to be exact"
DMSoft: *and a note
Altharid: (btw I'm still large… agugmented expansion to last 10min per lvl)
Baltasar watches Alth's activity curiously.
Altharid the red aura is no more
DMSoft: *does balt look at the note?*
DMSoft: *it shows no magic*
Baltasar: (( oh, missed the note ))
Altharid: "Yes I knew it… if he could do it… then it is nor really surprissing that I would be able do the same" - mutters to himself
Altharid: *not
Baltasar waits for Altharid to join him.
Altharid: *to do
Altharid joins
DMSoft: *the note seems new*
Baltasar flips open the note, reading it silently.
DMSoft: *paper is fresh*
DMSoft: "The password is Ra-Men, don't forget to say the password to attend the meeting. Kill those who don't have the password"
Baltasar reads it aloud after not finding any magical traps on it.
Altharid: (hehe ramen :P)
Baltasar: (( forgot that it wasn't magical :P ))
Altharid: (autohypnosis just in case)
Baltasar: (( what's the current IC date? ))
Baltasar: (( before the 12th? ))
DMSoft: (no idea….meeting is in 3 days I think)
Baltasar: (( oho! ))
DMSoft: (so tommorow, or friday)
Baltasar slips the note in his shirt pocket.
DMSoft: *you recognize the handwritting as the guy killed at the wedding*
Altharid: (afk brb)
Baltasar: "Well now, another lead."
Altharid: "It appears so"
DMSoft: *you still don't know where gin is*
DMSoft: *the grass stays frozen*
Baltasar: (( when alth gets back, we'll search the house ))
Baltasar: (( cause there's not bad odds there's more dudes inside ))
Altharid: ((kk back)

Baltasar: (( err, yes, but brb ))
Altharid: [1d20+2] => [2,2] = (4) on that save (forgot to do this)
Altharid: (heh so 3 damage from cold)
Altharid: (he is immune to negative energy)
DMSoft: (okay)
Altharid: (unless hardness protects from it… then no damage)
Altharid: (heh already spen 17pp… dimension swapping costs keep addding after a while)
DMSoft: (how many pp do you have left?)
Altharid: (18)
Altharid: (I can recharge with AP if situation gets dire enough)
DMSoft: it may
Altharid: (6pp per 1 AP)
Altharid: (so its not bad)
DMSoft: we need AP to refill inspiration points
Altharid: (what kind of ratio would you propose ?)
DMSoft: (1 to fill)
DMSoft: (i'm biased)
Altharid: (seems fair enough)

Baltasar: (( ahh, thought the first carnexes were blue ))
Altharid: (will +4 bonus provide me with more info ? I can use call to mind to reroll with +4 bonus)
DMSoft: *they were only light blue*
DMSoft: *the brain would have owned you both you thinnk altharid*
Baltasar uses knowledge religion to learn about the new carnex: [1d20+8] => [20,8] = (28)
Altharid: (kk)
DMSoft: *it has bad ass no save psionic skillz(
DMSoft: (the new carnex is corpse crafted, spell stiched, and all the other corpse feats…ALL of them…also desicrated)
Baltasar: (( lovely… ))
DMSoft: *it is out of sight now)
Altharid: (heh)
Baltasar: (( made with loving care ))
DMSoft: *the brain also seems to be all those things
Altharid: ((stitched with passion… wait that just sounded wrong))
DMSoft: *just not large
Baltasar: "Well, that was new and creepifying."
DMSoft: *you wonder why they ran*
Altharid: "He dared to damage my mind !"
Altharid: (wisdom damage)
Baltasar: (( eh, not really wondering ))
DMSoft: *kk*
Baltasar: (( they probably weren't supposed to get into a fight ))

Baltasar: (( i can use Spell Storing Item to cast it ))
DMSoft: *they seem unharmed*
Altharid: ((wouldn't that cost xp though ?))
DMSoft: *no sounds come from the house*
Baltasar: (( yes ))
Baltasar: (( two ))
Altharid: (only this much ? though the xp tax was higher)
Baltasar: (( spell level * caster level ))
Baltasar: (( oh wait, i can use it as a prestige paladin spell ))
Baltasar: (( so… 1 ))
Baltasar: (( CL 1, spell level 1 ))
Baltasar: (( :D ))
Altharid: ((heh 5gp cost at best :P))
Baltasar casts Lesser Restoration on Altharid
Altharid: (still 1d4 only))
Baltasar: Heals [1d4] => [3] = (3) wis damage
Altharid: ((kk 16 wis))
Altharid: ((I'm good now))
Altharid: "You have my thanks… employer… losing my mind would be worse that … oblivion"
Baltasar searches the house carefully.
Baltasar: Perception: [1d20+16] => [16,16] = (32)
DMSoft: *oh snap, I forgot to mention the jets hat on the brain jar*
Baltasar: (( …lulz ))
Altharid: (ROTFLMAO)
DMSoft: *baltasar find Gin tied up in the master study
DMSoft: *he looks terrorfied*
Baltasar: "Hey there."
DMSoft: *in the corner is a bag..it's out of place*
DMSoft: *he's gagged*
Altharid: "Greetings… weakling"
DMSoft: *and suspended*
Altharid: -telepathically
Baltasar cuts Gin's gag with his Magic Screwdriver
DMSoft: "Don't open the bag…cut me down!"
Baltasar: (( man, i love that thing ))
DMSoft: "it's full of blue rats!"
Baltasar: "Lovely…"
DMSoft: "dead blue rats..that move!"
Altharid: (sense motive)
Altharid: [1d20+3] => [2,3] = (5)
Altharid: (heh)
DMSoft: [1d20+6] => [6,6] = (12)
Altharid: (whisperer sense motive)
Altharid: [1d20] => [14] = (14)
DMSoft: (he seems to be telling the truth)
Baltasar cuts the knots and catches Gin, setting him down.
DMSoft: "Oh thank goodness it's you guys."
Baltasar: "Yeah, imagine seeing you here."
DMSoft: "Gin starts moving to the corner of the room…away from the bag"
DMSoft: "I think the butler guy is frozen in the basement"
Baltasar: "How'd prison agree with you?"
DMSoft: "we should burn that bag with arrows or something!"
Altharid readies his guisarme
Baltasar sighs, "Good help is so hard to find, did they really have to kill him?"
DMSoft: *the bag sits int he corner. it's 4' big
DMSoft: "No, he's frozen…not dead."
DMSoft: "they froze me too."
Baltasar: "Wait a second Al.
Altharid: "Hmm shall I call my servants to do the job ?"
Baltasar starts popping Alchemist's Fire out of his launcher, replacing them with Acidic Fire
Baltasar binds the five flasks together with some tape.
Altharid manifests 1pp astral construct … just in case
DMSoft: *gin looks excited. "kill them!"
DMSoft: *they explode…be careful*
Baltasar: "Gin, take cover under the desk, ok?"
DMSoft: *gin moves under the desk*
Baltasar moves behind the desk, beckoning for Altharid.
Baltasar: "And now we set the place on fire."
Baltasar: "Like I wanted to do originally."
Altharid follows balt
Baltasar lobs the bomb at the bag. Attack roll: [1d20+10] => [3,10] = (13)
Altharid: (square ac is just 10ac)
Altharid: (should hit)
DMSoft: *the bomb hits the bag…you see a great fire…then an explosion
Baltasar: (( yup ))
Baltasar: Damage: [5d6] => [1,1,4,5,1] = (12)
DMSoft: *then the fire goes out
Baltasar: (( wtf man… ))
Baltasar: (( still, it did that damage to everything in the square ))
DMSoft: *it seems it was rigged to explode all the rats in a chain reaction
Baltasar: (( oh that's neat ))
DMSoft: *the room is covered in frost
DMSoft: *permanent frost
DMSoft: *it's very cold in here
Baltasar is glad he has his Travel Cloak (endure elements)
Altharid likes it (he's an arctic human afterall)
DMSoft: "Wow, I'm glad I don't live here."-gin
Baltasar: "Well, what say we go find Harj and get out of here?"
Altharid: "That' some … interesting device… you have invented Balt"
Baltasar smirks, "It goes boom"
DMSoft: "Yeah, good idea. The butler was very kind to me…before Imbrudar froze him"
Altharid: "Imbrudar ?"
Baltasar: "So you know his name, good."
Baltasar: "We're going to have some questions for you once we get someplace safer."
DMSoft: "the evil necromancer. He was very tall and beatiful"
Baltasar: "Al, mind taking point?
Altharid: "Female one ?"
DMSoft: "did you see him. He was here just a few minutes ago"
Baltasar: "We should clear the rest of the house, just in case."
DMSoft: "I figured you killed him."
Altharid: "Negative"
Baltasar: "No, haven't seen him yet. Just a few monsters."
DMSoft: *you explore the rest of the house with the origianl per check*
DMSoft: *you find har-jeevs in the basement
DMSoft: *he's thawing out*
DMSoft: "Master…so cold."-harjeeves
Altharid: "I like cold… whats wrong with you … servant ?"
Baltasar uses his screwdriver to start a fire in the kitchen fireplace.
DMSoft: *you manage to warm him up
Baltasar: (( i assume we didn't find anything else in the house?" ))
DMSoft: *he hands you something
Baltasar examines it carefully, with detect magic as well.
DMSoft: "I took this master."
DMSoft: "from the wizard"
DMSoft: *it's a library card, like the one you made for Mali….but different
Baltasar: (( which knowledge to learn more? ))
Altharid: "… thats… amusing… a necromancer… knowledge buster ?"
DMSoft: *you know enough about it to know it's a corrupted version of the card. different symbol…nerull or college of necromancy
Baltasar: (( magical? ))
DMSoft: (hell's yeah)
Altharid: (kk so ignore my comment)
DMSoft: (you think you could control undead if you had turning)
Baltasar uses Identify on it (Artificer's Monocle)
Altharid: (I have turn… not rebuke)
DMSoft: *it reads exactly as the item in the wiki, except it adds rebuke attempts and has normal reliquary requirements
Baltasar raises his eyebrows at this.
DMSoft: *it seems to be a bastardization of the one you made
Baltasar: "Well done, Mr. Jeeves."
DMSoft: "Yes, the wizard was strong master"
Baltasar: "Remind Master Three to reward you suitably."
DMSoft: "tea?"-harjeeves gets up
DMSoft: "Thank you so much for saving me!"-gin
Baltasar: "No, thank you. We need to follow up on this information quickly."
DMSoft: "And thank you for trying to free me harjeeves."
DMSoft: *on the way back, Gin explains some things
DMSoft: *he tells you that the necromancer abducted him and tried to brain wash him
DMSoft: *he wanted Gin to give you and the cranes an irresistable job
DMSoft: *gin thinks it was meant to be a trap*
Altharid: ((before balts infusion runs out Altharid uses it to heal himself)
Baltasar processes the information, thinking about the next course of action.
DMSoft: "oh, my sister, is she okay?"-gin says on the way back
Baltasar frowns slightly.
Baltasar: "Well, she was the one who asked us to find you."
DMSoft: "really? Is she still sick?"
Baltasar: "And we discovered she was under a curse of some description."
DMSoft: "Is she cured?"
DMSoft: "I looked for a cure and had to give more jobs to make money"
Baltasar: "We think so, Madam Ohba was easily able to break the curse."
Altharid: "The Necromancer took liking… to your family so it seems… however the affliction was removed if that whats you wanted to hear"
Altharid: (darn got a bug)
Altharid: Disconnecting from server…
Altharid (exit): 11:56
Baltasar: "We left her at the library under observation, just in case."
Altharid (enter): 11:56
DMSoft: *you can arrive at the libary if you want*
Baltasar: (( yeah, that's where we'd head next ))
Baltasar: (( ok, to sum up what we know so far… ))
Altharid: (Altharid visits mali with cookies if thats along the path)
DMSoft: *you step into the library. If you are holding the card or have it.
DMSoft: *you see the library for what it is
Baltasar: (( oh? ))
DMSoft: *You see rows of books extending into the distance
Baltasar: (( L-Space :P ))
DMSoft: *and a massive catalog
DMSoft: *you see more knowledge busters and librarians
DMSoft: *thousands more
Baltasar: (( i can't believe i didn't make the connection before… ))
DMSoft: *you wonder why you didn't see it when you were making mali's card
Baltasar: (( ok… trying to figure out what that means ))
DMSoft: *but you see it with the new card
DMSoft: (knowledge planes again)
DMSoft: (diff only 15)
Baltasar: (( i want to say it's because the library exists in multiple places simultaneously, but those from each place only see the ones who are… something ))
DMSoft: (you know that to be true)
Baltasar: know:planes [1d20+11] => [18,11] = (29)
Baltasar: (( heh ))
DMSoft: (it looks like there are multiple doors)
DMSoft: (and one massive door in the center, that says Sigil)
Baltasar eyes the big door warily.
DMSoft: (there are 6 huge guards with flaming swords)
Altharid: (how much time passed since we fought the carnexes ?)
DMSoft: (you know these to be Pers, Portal guards)
DMSoft: (5 hrs, it's late day)
Altharid: (kk so my expansion is offline)
Baltasar nods respectfully towards the portal guards.
Baltasar: (( any other checks i should make? ))
DMSoft: *the guard ignores you
Altharid stands guard near his employer
Baltasar: (( spellcraft, arcana, etc? ))
DMSoft: *the planes one covered it
Baltasar: (( cool ))
DMSoft: *you remember when hiroshi asked you "which branch"
DMSoft: *it makes sense now
Baltasar: (( so can you explain it OOCly, cause i'm still not entirely sure i get it ))
DMSoft: (you pretty much nailed it with your other post)
Baltasar: (( the extra people are multi-dimensional copies? ))
DMSoft: (it's a tardis)
DMSoft: (yes, you see overlaps, but they keep it to a minimum)
Baltasar: (( ok, so they're the same people, just different planes ))
Baltasar: (( that's some major big juju ))
DMSoft: *the card is hurting you
DMSoft: *annoying buzz, not damage
Baltasar: (( what's it doing? ))
Baltasar: (( ahh ))
Baltasar places the card in one of his flasks, carrying it carefully.
Baltasar: "Let's go find Mr or Mrs Ohba.
DMSoft: *you find Glory with Gin's sister
Baltasar: "Well, we didn't catch the necromancer, but we did find a few things."
DMSoft: "Greeting Baltasar."
Baltasar: "Not the least being him."
Altharid bows a little
DMSoft: "Ah, well, enlighten us."
Baltasar pushes Gin to the front.
DMSoft: "Brother!"-gin's sister embraces him
Baltasar: "As well as this" *holds up the flask*
DMSoft: "I am so grateful!"-gin
DMSoft: "What's that….it looks like a library card"-Glory
Altharid: "Of interesting type… at that"
Baltasar: "It is. It's very similar to your library cards."
Baltasar: "Only rather more evil."
Baltasar hands the flask to Glory
DMSoft: "Oh, the symbol is ancient"
DMSoft: *when you hand it to her, your super perception of the tardis library is gone
Baltasar: "One of our servants managed to lift that off the necromancer we were hunting."
Baltasar: "And Gin also discovered the man's name."
DMSoft: "We will need to study this further. What is the name?"
Baltasar tells her. (because i can't remember…)
Altharid: (uses autohypnosis to recall the name)
DMSoft: "Oh, Inbruder. I have never heard that name"
Baltasar: (( ah, Imbrudar ))
Baltasar: (( looked up the lo ))
Baltasar: *log
DMSoft: (yeah, it's imbrudar_
DMSoft: (i'm looking at his page now)
Baltasar: "Gin, how old would you say the man was?"
DMSoft: "he was young and handsome beyond words."
DMSoft: (knowledge psionics alth)
Altharid: Skills: Knowledge (psionics) [1d20+9] => [8,9] = (17)
Altharid: (whisperer aid)
Altharid: [1d20+7] => [13,7] = (20)
DMSoft: (the brain the jar could have easily projected an image into gin's mind)
DMSoft: (and harjeeves)
Altharid explains that
DMSoft: "Hmm, a Brain in a jar you say?"-glory
Baltasar: "That's just great."
DMSoft: "well, this information is helpful. Here is your reward."-glory calls to a buster
Baltasar: "He seemed very accomplished as a necromancer, his minions had some very interesting additions, beyond what was normal for their type."
DMSoft: *the buster comes forward and hands 2000 gp to baltasar
Baltasar: "And they seemed to like cold an awful lot."
Baltasar nods his thanks.
DMSoft: "We will investigate."
DMSoft: *knowledge religion or history balt
Baltasar: "Let us know if you need us in the field. I'm definitely interested in seeing this to the end."
Baltasar: know:religion [1d20+8] => [12,8] = (20)
DMSoft: *you remember the password is Ra-men
DMSoft: *you recall reading about Ra-men
DMSoft: *in the liches book
Baltasar smacks his forehead and pulls out the note, "Almost forgot."
Altharid: (I used autohypnosis to remember that)
DMSoft: (lol, you didn't read the book tho)
Baltasar hands the note to Glory, "Found this with the carnex minions we killed."
DMSoft: "Oh, this is terrible!"
Baltasar: "We found other papers that talked about a meeting, three days from now."
DMSoft: "I suggest both of you stay in the library from now on"
Baltasar: "At a place called the cinderhouse."
DMSoft: "If it is Ra-men, you are no match."
Baltasar grins, "Your husband suggested the same thing. Couldn't stay put then, can't do it now."
DMSoft: "Well, you could infiltrate the group. Be careful please."
Baltasar: "After all, what's the worst that can happen?"
Altharid shrugs at the thought of being a no match to someone
Baltasar: "At most, he can trap our souls and torture us for eternity."
DMSoft: "Stay away from Durge just to be safe."
DMSoft: "that's where he is bound."
Baltasar raises an eyebrow, "I'm afraid I can't do that either. I promised your husband that I would keep an eye on young Rydia."
DMSoft: "I…am confused…Lightbringer destroyed him"
DMSoft: *glory leaves with the evil card
DMSoft: "So, how can I repay you?"-gin says
Baltasar shakes his head at Altharid, "He's a wizard and a lich, and they're all surprised he didn't die."
Baltasar looks at Gin thoughtfully.
Altharid: "… hmm amusing"
Altharid: "Undying foes… eternal challege"
DMSoft: "I overheard about the location just now"
Altharid: "It sounds… delightful"
Baltasar: "Things are happening in Dragonport. And I know you have your finger on its pulse, better than most as well."
DMSoft: "I don't think the date is right."
Baltasar: "Oh?"
DMSoft: "The necromancer said the 24th day and it had to be a special one"
DMSoft: "Something about an alignment"
Baltasar: (( so 15 days from now, and some astral phenomenon ))
DMSoft: "but I didn't get that far. I could only heard so much"
Altharid: (we've got that key btw from Bill's session)
Altharid: (forbidance negator)
DMSoft: (k, i'm just pushing the date down)
Baltasar: "…Hold that thought. I'm going to look up a calendar."
Altharid: (*forbiddance)
Baltasar flips through the card catalog, looking for a book that will show the different planar and/or stellar/planetary phenomena
Baltasar: (( basically, i'm thinking it's going to require the stars or planets to align, or a planar alignment ))
DMSoft: *you easily find one, and there will be 4 special necromantic alignments*
Altharid assists should Balt need some autohypnosis-aid
Baltasar: (( 15 days from now? ))
DMSoft: *the death star shall sit the in 7th house this month*
DMSoft: *the death star shall disappear from the sky next month*
DMSoft: (yeah, bill's next game)
Baltasar attempts to correlate the 7th house with something he knows: int check [1d20+5+1d6] => [9,5,2] = (16) (used an AP on this)
DMSoft: *the death star shall blow up alderon in the 3rd month
Baltasar: (( waste of a perfectly good AP ))
DMSoft: (you know that that alignment is probably the most likely one)
Baltasar: (( basically,i'm thinking that the 7th house is either the material plane or dragonport or something ))
Baltasar: (( and the villain IS the death star ))
Baltasar: (( and when it disappears from the sky, he's coming ))
DMSoft: (lol, you don't get that impression)
Altharid: ((mmm I sense psionic sandwitch trick))
Baltasar: (( aww, and it sounded so good too :\ ))
DMSoft: (brain in a jar is the original psionic sandwich)
Altharid: ((*sandwich))
Baltasar: (( pssh, more like Psionic Jam ))
DMSoft: (k, anything else you guys need to do?)
Baltasar: (( just need to find some psionic peanut butter ))
Altharid: ((gelly !))
DMSoft: (treasure was 1000 for holt, you guys split the rest)
Baltasar: (( is balt high enough level to learn more about the library? ))
DMSoft: (exp is 1500)
Altharid: (kk)
