Strength: 94% via eldritch roller because I cannot wait any longer.

The foul eldritch randomizer fails the barbarian's true nature.
But Kondor manages to stand, and the burning frozen corpses roll away. The dead warlock's flaming sphere flames out, but its flames have ignited the barbarian's well-oiled studded leather.

[End of phase 2.]

[Declare intentions for Round 2 and one of you roll initiative on d6.]

Is anybody here still hanging with any of these series? I'm still getting a pull on Barbarian. Either I'm slipping or it's growing on me after 9.

Any chance to repost the original? or PM? I much preferred it - just more fun in the party.

Hah, good point.  It does seem kind of mundane now.  Unfortunately, I had that version saved on my work laptop which I left...at work.  I might go back to the original but if not, I'll definitely PM it to you on Monday.    

Thanks man! Looking forward to raiding some tombs, Climbing out and Identifying That Magic bling bling!!

Assuming your previous 19!

Sol slashes with his sword at the surprised Emral, his sword cleaving deep into the Warlock 's abdomen!

Roll damage!

After further discussion and contemplation I have decided to remove the Identify Magical Properties ability altogether, along with the Climb ability, and instead increase the Hit Die to d10.

Is the flaming sphere gone?

Can Kondor throw the bodies at the undead formerly known as Emral?

[Depends on if Sol uses phase 2 of the this round.  Kondor can throw bodies next round, which are on fire, like Kondor.]

So can Kondor put himself out during phase two?

He can try but he's underneath 2x dead weight, everybody on fire, and he failed his save.  Roll Extraordinary Feat of Strength.

(mutter, mumble, now has to roleplay his barbarian's suspicion of sorcery via ludite dice use...)

Okay, rolling:  8.  I assume... lower is better?

No! it's worse! It burns!!

The flames find their way inside the barbarian's winter cloak and beneath his studded leather, burning his weathered skin for 5 HP of damage.

The bodies atop Kondor roar with flame as the magical inferno ball dissipates before Sol's very eyes !!!

[End of Phase one.  Sol has an attack for Phase 2 if he wants.]

The ball of flames spins away from Emral's pointing finger toward Kondor, as the barbarian leaps for the hanging rope....

But the sheer volume of the great warrior snaps the frozen twine and the barbarian falls to the stone floor, the 2 hanging bodies shield Kondor from the brunt of the fire and burst into flames atop him.

[Condor roll d20.]


Sol rushes into the room. The lantern has fallen to the floor and gone out, a puddle of oil set ablaze around it on the floor. Kondor is engulfed inside a ball of fire and an amor clad sorcerer stands at a makeshift bed before him, his finger seemingly controlling the sphere of deadly flame.

19 on a d20. (actually rolled that just in case you were wondering)

Ha! No I trust my players' rolls!

Had a Legerdemainist in every game I've run so far.
And I played one in Chainsaw's Atlantis game @ Texas this year!

Be sure to check in the Character Class discussion forum, there might be some great insight over there too!

FYI: Group initiative is a d6.  I'll call this 11 - a 4!

Sol, what will you do?

His deep wounds not yet congealed fully, the corpse rises, his eyes a clouded milky gloss.

"I am the wielder of hellfire!" he croaks, and tosses the loosened whip to the floor. His arms outright ending in clutching claws ..... and a forming Sphere of Flame!

Sol watches the Barbarian rush inside the building and with the sudden loss of lamp light now notices that the bell high in the belfry is glowing crimson.

The platinum pieces holding the Warlocks eyes closed fall to floor, ringing out a perfect pitch against the blood stained stone floor.

"Who dares wake the dead?" croaks a gravel voice through a stiffening larynx.

Kondor holds his lantern forward peering into the burned out doorway.

There are 2 dead bodies suspended by a thick rope through the broken out hole in the ceiling, one hanging at around 6 ft. and the other above at 12 ft.
A few arrows and a sword lay in a pile beneath the bodies.
The room smells of flowers.

Books are stacked on the floor along the walls. There's a mattress on the floor on your right hand side.

The light illuminates the shape of a man, clad in brigandine. He's lying on his back, his hands lashed together with a whip  and resting on his still chest.

Sol has never witnessed anything like that pulse in his life. The whole of the inky pitch brightened 2 shades for a millisecond from horizon to horizon.
