Dream Warriors

Post by jbvholli » Wed Jun 06, 2018 1:13 am

Present dilemma: We lose max hit points and don't get long rests
Shit we could do about our present dilemma that didn't get tried:

KId Rock Solution-sleep during day and move at night just like the evil fucks we are. See what happens then.

Cuddle up with Pretor: My character gets up after a SR and casts Magic Circle at 4th level power every two hours for an entire night, heroically never getting a LR, but the rest of the characters do, assuming that all stay within the spell's ten foot radius; we had incomplete coverage both chronologically and geographically last session if this is the right idea.

Go back to the "gate": Chord needs to further investigate that broken doorway, because all this shit happened after we lit it up. Post hoc ergo propter hoc.

Of course I welcome comments.

"All I was doing was conducting research", said Pretor to no one in particular. "I don't deserve to be continually derided by the rest of you and neither does Amadeus. Using EtA was certainly a mistake and I won't do it again. However, I do need to tell you all that I was given a hint to our present predicament by the drug anyway, and I've only just now realized it. Every time I did the drug, my euphoria ended with the baying of what I thought were wolves. There are stories of HOUNDS in my unholy canon, from a place called Tindalos, which come forth from another dimension and drain the life from material beings. They are enabled to come to our plane through corners, and are repelled by my circles of protection. Since we can't eliminate every corner, I will continue, with your permission, to create a circle around us to get a rest so that you can bring all the power of Karamaka to bear on them. Their eye is on me-I already cast my Magic Circle spell but only provided an imperfect and temporary respite. so now you must hearken to me, and stay in the circle for a nice long rest. I will rise to mend this circle every couple hours, and I thank you for your forbearance and watchfulness. One important safety tip--if the hounds tumble to my plan, they may manifest and attack, since their physical forms are mickle deadly to us. If that happens, use the circle as a zone of safety, but focus your attacks on one at a time, since determined resistance and knocking out even one of them may cause the rest to flee. Only magicked weapons like my Keller-Mandarzek and Xander's rapier or Valak's sword can harm them significantly, and I don't put much stock in trying to burn them either, based on what I know."

Are these perhaps related to the were-Creatures that attacked us the other evening? Have we been cursed by them?

What broken "gate" are you referring to?

We found a doorway in the forest with claw marks and we never properly tested it. The short guys decided to plink it and we left it behind in a worse state than it was...you know, the valuable eye patch we got might be magic, since we know Buddy Bears were on to something...what if one of us slept with it on? Maybe the bottle of potion (oil) could be Oil of Etherealness...just as easily could be Honeydew Vine Water, since none of our Wizards can detect magic...does anyone remember how many of us get bad dreams per night that it happened? That could clue us to how many hounds are giving us such good humpies...

It seems to be three each night, but we'd have to get everyone's consensus.

I had a bad dream on Night 1, and Night 2, but not Night 3.

I think we need to head back to the gate and investigate. It does not seem to be geographically related as we've traveled in three directions and even out of the forest with no true respite.

Is there any way to search for the hounds you speak of, if they are truly hounds?

three, huh? and in our weakened state...maybe the eyepatch...don't you have something eye-related, Xander? Can Amadeus horn divine another plane? I have that thing from Frostarr, but it's useless-I tried.
