I'm afraid that's not quite as pithy as you may have hoped.

hmm maybe petty. I still think pithy sounds like an insult. I will continue to use it as such. Im sure not many people will realize I'm complimenting them anyway.

You know whats funny? that anyone, NPC or otherwise, could even think of Arel being minutely of sound mind.

PY, you might want to work out your skills for your character sheet. I forgot to remind you last time when the only skill you have listed properly is Perform.

Well, that depends. The githyanki are also ruled absolutely by a horrendously insane necromancer dominatrix, so it's possible that they would see leadership qualities in Arel.

Two questions about the Underdark teleportation ruining, Darken, so I fully understand it:
  • Does it apply to short distance teleports? Would it affect something passing through even a very thin wall, or to a place within line of sight?
  • Does it apply only when entering the Underdark, or when leaving it as well?

First of all, the notion of Teleport failure to Underdark is due to the fact Underdark is everchanging, thus if you are teleporting into a, say, Drow City, that you visited before, that same location might be solid rock this time.

Given that, the success of Teleport is based on "how recent your knowledge of target location is" rather than "how far you wish to travel." For example, if you can see a place, and you Teleport there, there will be no chance of failure at all. If you can somehow teleport behind a wall (for example, Scry behind it, or have someone describe the place to you then Greater Teleport, etc) and you know just last minute there's an empty space behind it, there's no failure rate either.

This rule applies only when entering, not leaving. Other places of Faerun do not have this property; it's the target of your destination that matters.

Oh, now I get it. I had it in my head that the actual stone in the Underdark screwed up teleportation. But it's time-contingent... that's a big relief.

I've got to take a look at that Underdark book eventually.

That is actually a house rule

The actual rules state that the Underdark is ever-changing and that this messes up teleportation, but you get a Spellcraft check against a comparatively low DC to accurately arrive where you want to go. Darken's rule sounds more like what the Underdark is actually supposed to be like.

Davmaster, perhaps you'd like to at least give your cohort some instructions? You do have control of your cohort, so if you don't give her instructions or at least OOC guidelines, I cannot (and do not want to make assumptions to) decide her actions, especially for a caster.

I forgot to mention that Arel's letter involves some bluffing, involving just how concerned she is about eliminating the grave threat to all sentient life. Oh no, she doesn't want to eliminate the threat, although she is planning on an attack... what she's interested in is putting them in a vulnerable position where the lot of them can have their brain chemistry messed with. Which doesn't really eliminate the problem, it just changes its scope.

Ironic, isn't it, that I'm going to try and play around with the brains of illithids. Her bluff modifier is +9 for your convenience.

ok, I dont know what spells she has, so I just said to hold the guy. Meaning like, a Hold Monster Spell.

Oh, and I edited the post where I started Rally the Crew. It actually gives me +3, not +2...

JK, something happens to Cazio on Secondday, Firstweek Mirtul and requires direct player input, which is two days in the future on Liliana's time. Do you wish to convert character at that point? Or would you like me to resolve such event with Cazio as NPC, and continue playing Liliana?

This battle is getting more complicated than I thought it would get... should it have a map?

I did not prepare a map for the battle due to the fact that there is no map for your ship, nor are there any detailed descriptions regarding this "secure room" you bring the Orcs into, so I just decided that we can work out the battle with pure description and everything goes within reason.

However, if you'd like to see a map, it's no problem as well, I can generate one to act as visual aid.

Its an elven wingship. Actually there might be plans for that one in the book... I'll check that out.

And actually, I dont think we need a map, things suddenly simplified. I'll still try to get a map of the ship in case it comes up ever later.

Darken: the switchover would be fine by me. Sorry about being unreachable over the weekend again.
