Re: The Cursed Cove

Emral draws the dagger and heads to the vine wall. He tests the blade carefully on the plants.

Re: The Cursed Cove

The thick vines and heavy leaves seem to wilt away from the outstretched dagger.

Re: The Cursed Cove

On contact with the blade or proximity?  Thinking about cutting a branch.  

ooc:  Hey, you thinking about joining a game as a player?

Re: The Cursed Cove

The pillowy leaves shrink and curl away from the outstretched blade, turning a pale sickly yellow when attempting to touch the blade to the leaf.

Further insistence causes the leaf to bow to the ground away from the blade, breaking from its stem and growing brown before disintegrating to mush before contact.

Re: The Cursed Cove

Dagger:  Emral moves the dagger through the center of the vine, seeing if it's going to make a cut or if it disintegrates plants/rots them, etc.

ooc:  I'm looking around.  it's... sparse.  Lots of supers starting but seem to maybe fizzle or go into GM storywriting mode.  No proper dungeon crawls that aren't 5e or PF.  Oi.

Re: The Cursed Cove

You cannot get the dagger near any plant.
The plant seems to move itself away from the blade - disintegrate itself if it has to.

Re: The Cursed Cove

Fascinating!

How much disintegration and can he cut it in one area and then leave a segment and cut another area?

Re: The Cursed Cove

Emral is making the attempt, though he doesn’t want to do too much damage to the ecosystem.  Can’t eat rotten nature, so to speak.

Ooc:  I am putting together a test document for my game. If you are still up for giving me a read and review, I would be very grateful. I’m not expecting a revolution in gaming but I want to make sure anything I have my name on is functional and, I hope, fun to use!

The plants are overly thick but melt away from the dagger quite rapidly.
Passing the dagger to and fro as he goes, Emral makes a 8 ft wide x 60 ft long path after a turn.
He is surrounded, but looking back down his path the comfort of the warm beach awaits.

He knows having to hack through this wall with the blade would exhaust him to death.

A deep shadow falls across the land as one of the lower orbiting asteroids passes overhead.

Emral looks around the plants as he goes for anything interesting.

When the comet passes overhead, Emral tries to get a better look, even moving back to the beach if needed.

Re: The Cursed Cove

The surrounds are solid jungle.

It's not a comet, it's a low-orbit floating rock moving very slowly, a slight spin on axis.

Re: The Cursed Cove

So is the jungle a dead end? Is everything disintegrated or can Emral pick through the cuttings for the vine branch he was hoping to make originally?

I’m not sure what to do other than searching for things and building a shelter.  There’s no dungeon or mystery to map, so I welcome any hint you might offer. Maybe we should find an NPC hireling?  Or a GM NPC allowing us to converse?

Re: The Cursed Cove

The vines beyond the influence of the dagger are unaffected. And the density of the jungle here is simply overwhelming. 
The vines that wilted away are no longer solid to the touch, a soupy mess on the ground.

But there's a whiff of that smell of smoke on the air again, blowing in from the beach.



"I’m not sure what to do other than searching for things and building a shelter."
Totally reasonable. I might add find some non shredded clothing to this list.

There is no dungeon on the beach. I'd say finding a piece of paper from your "dream" is pretty freaking mysterious.

"Maybe we should find an NPC hireling? Or a GM NPC allowing us to converse?"
Good idea, I'd look elsewhere.
