[19:59] <DM_ToA> After fighting psychic monkies, zombies and overwheling heat – the group has now found themselves in the ruins of Camp Righteous without a guide. As the sunlight is smothered by the canopy…the sounds of the jungle grow quiet…as if something more dangerous approaches the rotted tents. Tonight's chapter of Tomb of Annihilation * and begins
[20:00] * May is now known as Kayalia
[20:01] <Kayalia> (whoeever came up with “psychic monkeys” needs to be fired from the writer's chair imo…)
[20:02] <DM_ToA> (the concept? Oh – you'll have to get a shovel. That's right from the twisted mind of Gygax)
[20:03] <DM_ToA> (I'm trying to avoid using the real name)
[20:03] <DM_ToA> (You guys still poking around?)
[20:04] <Miri> (miri is trying to get everyone to settle down for a long rest)
[20:04] <Kayalia> (kaya is refusing to cave w/o rest)
[20:04] <Terres> (apparently i was overruled on the whole lets check uot the dark coridor … cowards)
[20:05] <Ash> “Well that information was useful. I don't recommend the cave this evening.”
[20:05] <Miri> (we don't get our level 5 stuff until we rest, also full hp is always a good idea before a dark corridor)
[20:05] <Kayalia> (also they have been on a forced march through a jungle all day and are tired.)
[20:06] <Terres> “Lets find a spot we can rest in, some place easily defended”
[20:07] <Terres> ( i think i agreed to take the first watch last week)
[20:08] <DM_ToA> (would you guys like a map of the area?)
[20:08] <Kayalia> (yes)
[20:08] <Terres> (sure)
[20:08] <Miri> (sure, lets see a pic of our doom)
[20:08] * Tolman is now known as Stolanimus
[20:08] * Terres tries to look for a good spot to camp
[20:09] <DM_ToA> (best I could find)
[20:09] <DM_ToA>
[20:10] <Ash> (Oh that looks “quaint”)
[20:10] <Stolanimus> (lol)
[20:10] <Terres> (it even has all the traps marked for us)
[20:12] <DM_ToA> (You see? I actually try to help)
[20:13] <Stolanimus> (am I still a dire wolf?)
[20:13] <DM_ToA> (Yes)
[20:13] <DM_ToA> (and a good boy)
[20:13] <Stolanimus> ( *tongue wagging* )
[20:14] * Stolanimus scouts the area sniffing furiously.
[20:14] <Terres> (any of the buildings around that can be used to camp in
[20:14] <Terres> )
[20:14] * Ash finds a place to sleep for the night.
[20:15] * Miri looks for a place to kip as well.
[20:15] <DM_ToA> (There is no shortage of empy rotten canvas tents.)
[20:16] <DM_ToA> (There are a couple of command officer tents – they look…decent…)
[20:16] * Stolanimus takes watch til his form runs out then sleeps.
[20:16] <DM_ToA> (You'll get a full shift before you come back as an elf)
[20:16] <DM_ToA> (Where is everyone sleeping?)
[20:17] * Ash takes one of the officer tents.
[20:17] * Miri will take an officer's tent as well
[20:17] * Terres takes his watch then attempts to sleep (his way into lvl 5)
[20:18] <DM_ToA> The first two watches (Stol and Terres pass without incident
[20:18] * Miri will take the last watch.
[20:18] <Ash> (Middle watch)
[20:20] * Kayalia stakes out a good tent and doesn't take watch unless asked to.
[20:20] <DM_ToA> Miri – what's your passive perception?)
[20:20] <Miri> (10)
[20:22] * Miri moves from her position towards the boats, drawing her sword but not lighting it yet.
[20:23] <DM_ToA> From the boats, you hear something grinding and bubbling. (Roll Stealth, please)
[20:23] <Miri> 1d20
[20:23] <TolBot> Miri's 1d20(7)]: 7
[20:24] <DM_ToA> As you draw close to the boats, some sand gives away under your feet, making you mis-step. As a couple of coins clank…
[20:24] <DM_ToA> …something darts away, retreating into the shadows.
[20:25] * Miri whispers 'marshmallow' and lights her sword. “coins….” looks from the coins and looks around, looking for anything else even afte seeing the thing dart away.
[20:26] * Dylan reads a bit and goes to sleep
[20:26] <DM_ToA> The golden flame leaps from the base of the blade to the tip. In the darkness beyond the light, you see only the black forms of the boats receding into the water.
[20:28] * Miri bends down to pick up a couple of the coins and look at them. “you are more honorable than i thought.” She calls out where she saw the movement, acting on a hunch.
[20:28] <DM_ToA> (two copper coins – honorable? yes. Cheap? Double yes)
[20:29] <DM_ToA> (The rest of the night passes without incident. Welcome to Level 5)
[20:30] <Ash> (DING)
[20:30] * Miri douses the light of her sword as the sun rises, and looks around on the bank just to see if there are any more coins before heading back to the others.
[20:31] <DM_ToA> (You find a couple more copper, maybe a silver – stuff dropped in a panic as you can tell)
[20:32] * Miri picks up what she finds then heads back.
[20:32] <DM_ToA> In the morning light, you see four boats with holes bored crudely in the bottom – they not even good firewood for camp fires now.
[20:32] * Terres stretches and shakes the sleep foms his eyes
[20:33] <Terres> (are those fresh holes?)
[20:33] <DM_ToA> Some look freshly bored – there's still some wood floating above them. Others look old. This was not a one night event.
[20:34] <Kayalia> (but… why)
[20:35] <Terres> “I doubt the undead would bother trying to make the boats unusable , someone else did that”
[20:35] <Miri> “someone or something was also around here last night.”
[20:36] <DM_ToA> As you all walk out the tents, motion tugs at the corner of your vision…
[20:36] <Ash> “Oh great, so undead and people destroying our resources. This place sucks.”
[20:36] * Miri pulls her sword again and moves in the direction of the movement.
[20:37] <DM_ToA> (Do you wish to examine the smoking ruins of the shrine?)
[20:37] * Terres tries to see what was moving around
[20:37] <DM_ToA> A snake – large and brightly green and black – slithers out from one of the command tents.
[20:38] <Ash> “Hmm”
[20:38] <Miri> “oh a snake, lovely”
[20:38] * Terres looks around for Stolanimus
[20:38] * Stolanimus nods at Terres.
[20:39] <Terres> “Just checking”
[20:39] <Miri> “well, shall we head for terres' deep hole?”
[20:39] <Ash> “Do you want me to ask it about whomever damaged the boats?”
[20:40] <Stolanimus> “Possibly“
[20:40] <Terres> “Could help”
[20:40] * Ash casts 'Speak with Animals' and starts talking to the snake.
[20:40] * Kayalia yawns as she approaches the group, but manages to snap out of any sleepy hazy when seeing a snake slither across the ground.
[20:40] <Ash> “Excuse me, did you see what damaged those boats?”
[20:40] * Ash points at the boats.
[20:41] <DM_ToA> The snake stops, looks behind it.
[20:41] <DM_ToA> “Can't eat. Don't care.”
[20:42] <Ash> “What about the people who were here, did you see what happened to them?”
[20:43] <DM_ToA> “Got eaten. Eaten by bad tastes. Less bad tastes came back.”
[20:44] <Ash> “I see. Where did the bad tastes go?”
[20:47] <Terres> “time to explore the cave”
[20:47] <DM_ToA> “Back to the world.” The snake points its snout towards the jungle.
[20:48] <Ash> “Anybody else have questions for the snake?” (After relaying its answers)
[20:48] <Miri> “not me.”
[20:48] <Terres> “Just tell it that all of us here taste bad!”
[20:49] * Kayalia hums a few bars and prods at some rocks on the ground with one toe while listening to Ash hiss and otherwise speak parceltongue to a snake.
[20:49] <Ash> “Thank you. May you catch many good tastes today.”
[20:49] <DM_ToA> “May Sseth take you in his coils.”
[20:49] <DM_ToA> The snake continues on the way to the jungle.
[20:52] * Ash stands back up.
[20:53] * Terres casts Mage armor on himself and gets ready to explore the cave
[20:53] <Ash> “Ok, shall we?”
[20:53] * Miri lights her sword and nods.
[20:54] <DM_ToA> The mouth of the cave structure is covered in dirt, mud and wind tossed leaves.
[20:54] <DM_ToA> (Who's going in first)
[20:54] <Miri> (not it)
[20:54] <Stolanimus> “What are we hoping to find in here?”
[20:54] <DM_ToA> (said the person with the light)
[20:55] * Stolanimus produces a flame in his hand and walks forward.
[20:55] * Dylan watches and rubs his chin
[20:55] <Kayalia> “So… this is definitely the right place? Where we can find a way to end the world-effecting curse on resurrection?”
[20:56] <Miri> (hehe)
[20:56] <Ash> “No, this was a waypoint to finding the world-ending curse on resurrection.”
[20:56] <DM_ToA> (Stol – make a Perception check – Diff 13)
[20:58] <Kayalia> “A wayppoint? Then, why…?”
[20:59] <DM_ToA> (Stol?)
[20:59] * Ash shrugs
[20:59] <Terres> “I guess we could ignore what happened here for now and try to find this soulmongrel”
[20:59] <Ash> “Because we're here and something happened. Curiousity?”
[21:00] <Kayalia> “It seems awfully dangerous just for satisfying curiosity. That's all…“
[21:01] <Stolanimus> 1d20+6 dc13
[21:01] <TolBot> Stolanimus's 1d20(14)+6 'dc13']: 20 (Success)
[21:01] <Stolanimus> (+7, so 21)
[21:01] <Stolanimus> (sorry was afk)
[21:01] <Ash> “I've heard curiosity killed the cat, and satisifacation brought it back… but coming back isn't a good idea in this world state.”
[21:01] <Terres> “Something destroyed this settlement that was full of people used to dangers of the jungle and i wouldnt mind getting more information on what happened if its to be found here!”
[21:01] * Miri rubs her temples. “when we get back to the city…do yourself a favor and find a nice rich man to marry.”
[21:02] <DM_ToA> (Roll again – it's disadvantage, my fault)
[21:02] <Stolanimus> 1d20+7 dc13
[21:02] <TolBot> Stolanimus's 1d20(17)+7 'dc13']: 24 (Success)
[21:02] <Dylan> “That's actually a good question though”
[21:02] <DM_ToA> (ok – fine, I'll take the 21. Overachiever)
[21:02] <Dylan> “Also, what is the point of this world ending curse?”
[21:02] <Dylan> “Like, why would someone want to do that?”
[21:03] <Kayalia> “To annoy the old lady? Dunno.”
[21:04] * Stolanimus points out a stone tile raised in the floor.
[21:05] * Terres takes a closer look (being a dwarf and stone connoisseur)
[21:06] * Dylan looks around
[21:06] * Ash pauses and looks at where Stolanimus is pointing.
[21:07] <Miri> “lets not start this thing with a bang. Can someone disable it? it is a trap aint it?”
[21:07] <DM_ToA> You see a single stone tile – grossly out of place for your dwarven sensibilities – balanced as a counterweight for something. This is cunning – for a human or a froo-froo elf.
[21:07] <Terres> “yeah i wouldnt step on that”
[21:08] * Ash steps forward to look at the trap.
[21:08] <Stolanimus> “I know little of stonework, but thought that was odd.”
[21:09] <DM_ToA> Ash – you can tell it's a trigger trap with pressure being put on the stone releasing some mechanism.
[21:10] <Ash> “Well I can try to disable it, though I'm not sure how good I will be at it.”
[21:12] <Dylan> “How do you think the possible trap is triggered?”
[21:12] <Ash> “If that's what people prefer, I suggest stepping far back, in case this goes off.”
[21:12] <Ash> “Stepping on it.”
[21:12] <Miri> “I say we just don't step on it.”
[21:13] <Ash> “That is an option as well.”
[21:13] <DM_ToA> (Roll Sleight-of-Hand to disarm DC 13)
[21:13] * Kayalia hides behind Miri
[21:14] <Dylan> “What if we poked it with a stick from far away?”
[21:14] <Ash> “Well it could do a number of things, some of which could still be bad. Disarming or hopping over are probably the safest bets.
[21:16] <Ash> “So let's decide, disarm or jump?”
[21:16] <Terres> (so its just one tiel, can we mark it somehow and get around it?)
[21:16] <Terres> (tile too)
[21:17] <Dylan> (is this so big its gonna be hard to jump over?)
[21:17] <DM_ToA> (no the tile is a foot by foot – but's in such a place that anyone not knowing any better would trigger it)
[21:18] <Dylan> “Are there going to be more tiles like this one?”
[21:18] <Ash> “Let's look.”
[21:18] <Terres> “Where there is one there is more”
[21:18] * Ash checks the area.”
[21:19] <DM_ToA> (Roll Perception, DC 13, disadvantage)
[21:19] <Ash> 1d20+2 disadvantage
[21:19] <TolBot> Ash's 1d20(7, 2)+2 'disadvantage']: 4
[21:19] <Ash> “I don't see anymore.”
[21:20] <DM_ToA> (Nope! No other triggers here)
[21:20] <Miri> “maybe we should just be on our way?”
[21:21] <Dylan> (is this tile in a hallway? or?”
[21:21] <Dylan> )
[21:21] <DM_ToA> (Cut to Acerack in his tomb, watching TV and checking his watch…)
[21:21] <DM_ToA> (Yes, the tile is in the hallway just inside the cave complex)
[21:21] <Dylan> “Yea”
[21:22] * Dylan steps over the tile to the other side
[21:22] * Kayalia prepares to shield her eyes so she won't have to see Dylan's guts splatter everywhere when a million traps activate
[21:23] <DM_ToA> Dylan – you going down the hallway?)
[21:23] * Terres follows but carefuly plying attention to more trap triggers
[21:23] * Stolanimus follows. (change nick Dylan )
[21:23] <DM_ToA> Dylan Terres Stolanimus – anyone walking down the hall – roll 1d6)
[21:24] <Stolanimus> 1d6
[21:24] <TolBot> Stolanimus's 1d6(1)]: 1
[21:24] <Dylan> 1d6
[21:24] <TolBot> Dylan's 1d6(6)]: 6
[21:24] <Stolanimus> (hmm, that’s bad for one of us)
[21:24] * Miri waits at the entrance to see what happens.
[21:24] <DM_ToA> Terres was first?)
[21:24] * Kayalia watches for what not to do.
[21:24] <Dylan> (no i think i was first)
[21:25] <DM_ToA> Dylan walks down the hallway, trEading carefully.
[21:25] <DM_ToA> (After Dylan was Terres or Stol?)
[21:25] <Terres> (lets go with me)
[21:25] * Ash waits at the first trap tile to see if the others clear the hallway successfully.
[21:25] <DM_ToA> Terres roll 1d6)
[21:26] <Terres> 1d6
[21:26] <TolBot> Terres's 1d6(5)]: 5
[21:26] <DM_ToA> Terres crosses without incident. Who's next?
[21:27] * Ash follows in the steps of those who went before him.
[21:27] <Ash> 1d6 if needed
[21:27] <TolBot> Ash's 1d6(2) 'if needed']: 2
[21:27] <DM_ToA> (ash - 1d6)
[21:28] <DM_ToA> As Ash walks across, there is a metallic *ping* and the floor gives way…
[21:28] <Ash> “Shi…“
[21:28] <Terres> (quickly levitate)
[21:28] <DM_ToA> (take 2d6 points of damage)
[21:29] <DM_ToA> (“Levitaaaaaaiiiieeee!” “No – it's levitate. Do it right.”)
[21:29] <Ash> 2d6 damage
[21:29] <TolBot> Ash's 2d6(8) 'damage']: 8
[21:29] <Ash> “Ow!”
[21:29] <DM_ToA> Ash drops out of view with a small gasp. A second later – there's a flour sack-like thud.
[21:30] * Dylan winces
[21:30] <Ash> “I'm mostly ok, but that's going to leave a nasty bruise.”
[21:30] * Kayalia frowns.
[21:31] * Terres waits for a splash then looks bahind to see where Ashe dissapeard
[21:31] * Dylan fishes out a rope and ties one end to himself and then throws down the other end
[21:31] <Dylan> “Tie that around your waste and then tell me when you are ready” Dylan Calls
[21:31] <DM_ToA> The rope drops down in front of you, Ash It mocks you and you know it.
[21:32] * Ash scowls at the rope and ties it around his waist.
[21:32] <Ash> “Ready”
[21:32] * Dylan starts pulling
[21:33] <Dylan> (DC?)
[21:33] <Miri> (brb)
[21:33] <Ash> (I'm not that fat.)
[21:33] <DM_ToA> (12 Stregnth check)
[21:34] <Dylan> 1d20+2 DC 12 Str Check
[21:34] <TolBot> Dylan's 1d20(13)+2 'DC 12 Str Check']: 15
[21:34] <DM_ToA> You hoist him up with little effort, but now you're stuck with a pit and a seven foot ledge on either side.
[21:35] <Miri> (back)
[21:35] <Dylan> (who's on the other side?)
[21:36] <Miri> (Kay and Miri)
[21:36] <DM_ToA> Terres Stol on the far side. Everyone else on the near side)
[21:36] <Dylan> (how wide is the pit?)
[21:37] * Terres looks for a way to reset the pit trap on this end
[21:37] <DM_ToA> 20 ft square
[21:37] <DM_ToA> Terres roll Investigation)
[21:37] * Kayalia looks down at the chasm now in front of them.
[21:37] <Dylan> “That's gonna be a challenge”
[21:37] <Terres> 1d20+3
[21:37] <TolBot> Terres's 1d20(11)+3]: 14
[21:37] <DM_ToA> (There is a ledge on either side of hte pit, wide enough to walk on with some care)
[21:38] * Dylan tosses and end of the rope across once it is off Ash
[21:39] <Dylan> “Walk along the egdge, but if you trip we can catch you before you fall too far”
[21:39] * Miri attempts to catch the rope and hand it over to Kay.
[21:39] <DM_ToA> (Who's going first?)
[21:39] * Kayalia takes the end of it and sighs. “Keep it taut and I'll hold it while crossing the ledge?”
[21:40] <Dylan> “Yea, or tie it around your waist”
[21:40] <Miri> “just tie it around yourself and start walking the ledge”
[21:40] * Kayalia shrugs and begins to tie it around her waist.
[21:41] <DM_ToA> (Anyone walking the ledge needs to make an Acrobatics check DC 10 or fall, taking 2d6 bludgeoning damage and your ego will need to make a Death saving throw)
[21:42] <Dylan> (even with the rope?)
[21:42] <Kayalia> (I can't even fail that)
[21:42] <Kayalia> 1d20+10 Acrobatics to cross.
[21:42] <TolBot> Kayalia's 1d20(1)+10 'Acrobatics to cross.']: 11 (Ugh.)
[21:42] <Kayalia> (lol)
[21:42] * Stolanimus looks on, “Be careful.”
[21:43] <DM_ToA> (with the rope, I'll give you advantage)
[21:43] <Miri> (that's called heuberious”
[21:43] <Miri> (err ) )
[21:43] <DM_ToA> (hubris)
[21:43] <Miri> (yes, that)
[21:43] <Kayalia> (natural 1 does nothing on skill checks, unless there's a house rule)
[21:43] <DM_ToA> (not this time…)
[21:44] <DM_ToA> (if your modifier equals or exceeds, a natural one does nothing – shiny new house rule)
[21:44] <Terres> (ok which one of you activated the cheat mode)
[21:44] <DM_ToA> There are some slick spots from rotted leaves, but Kayalia makes it across.
[21:45] <Kayalia> (thats why I said I can't fail since my minimum would would be 11, greater than the DC. lol)
[21:46] * Miri taps her foot and waits.
[21:47] <Stolanimus> (crits are for attack rolls)
[21:47] <Kayalia> (^that)
[21:48] <DM_ToA> (next)
[21:48] <DM_ToA> (if you're using rope, give yourself advantage)
[21:48] <Kayalia> “Watch out for the rotted leaves, I could have slipped there.”
[21:48] * Miri waits for someone to throw her the rope then starts across
[21:48] <Miri> 1d20+3 adv
[21:48] <TolBot> Miri's 1d20(8, 16)+3 'adv']: 19
[21:49] * Kayalia unties the rope and then gives it to Dylan or whoever to throw across.
[21:49] <Terres> (afk few minutes, need to get the phone)
[21:50] <DM_ToA> (ok)
[21:50] <DM_ToA> (next?)
[21:51] <Kayalia> (?)
[21:51] <Miri> (isn't that it?)
[21:51] * Dylan throws the rope across
[21:51] <Kayalia> (2 of 2 done)
[21:51] <DM_ToA> (oh, sorry)
[21:51] <Dylan> (sorry i was writing an email)
[21:52] <DM_ToA> The empty hallway looms ahead of you.
[21:53] <Dylan> “Onwards?”
[21:53] * Kayalia glares at the hallway. Don't you dare loom.
[21:54] <Miri> “into the breach…so to speak”
[21:55] <DM_ToA> (Who's going first and are you checking for traps?)
[21:55] * Miri will be at the back because her preception is bad.
[21:55] <Dylan> (the other day while exploring the internet I learned it's was a life event for a young boy to receive his first pair of trousers, they referred to it as 'breeching a boy' #PantsFacts)
[21:56] <DM_ToA> Miri the Near-sighted Barbarian! A Terror to people really, really close to her!)
[21:56] <Miri> (:P)
[21:56] <DM_ToA> (Who's the sapper?)
[21:56] * Ash makes use of his healer's kit on himself while they prepare to move forward.
[21:56] * Dylan continues moving on once everyone is ready
[21:57] <Terres> (back)
[21:57] * Stolanimus moves behind Dylan
[21:57] <Ash> 1d6+9
[21:57] <TolBot> Ash's 1d6(3)+9]: 12
[21:57] * Dylan puts away the rope as he walks
[21:57] <Stolanimus> (explain terrain. this is a cave?)
[21:57] <Stolanimus> (as in, rough cut, etc?)
[21:58] <DM_ToA> (Temple complex – hewn walls, stone floor, some debris on the floor, but not a whole lot the deeper you go)
[21:58] * Terres follows Dylan and Stolanimus
[21:58] <Stolanimus> (got it)
[21:58] <DM_ToA> Dylan – have been voluntold to take the leave – please roll Perception, DC 13)
[21:59] <Dylan> (lemme find that roll)
[21:59] <Kayalia> (He doesn't need to leave. He should lead though)
[21:59] <Dylan> 1d20 DC 13
[22:00] <TolBot> Dylan's 1d20(7) 'DC 13']: 7
[22:00] <DM_ToA> (Everything is fine as you cross down the hall…)
[22:00] <DM_ToA> (give me marching order, please)
[22:00] <Miri> (i'm at the back)
[22:00] <Terres> (ill take 3)
[22:01] <Kayalia> (I guess I am 2nd to last?)
[22:02] <Dylan> (first)
[22:02] <DM_ToA> (what I have (fromt to back): Dylan Stol, Ash Terrres, Kayalia Miri)
[22:03] <Terres> (why not)
[22:04] <Dylan> (sounds right)
[22:04] <DM_ToA> Dylan – roll 1d6)
[22:08] <Dylan> 1d6
[22:08] <TolBot> Dylan's 1d6(2)]: 2
[22:08] <DM_ToA> A Blade comes hissing from an alcove. (DC 13 Dex Save)

[22:09] <DM_ToA> (take 12 points of slashing damage)
[22:09] <Miri> (ouch)
[22:10] <Dylan> (you dont make the check if you hit it right on?)
[22:10] <Stolanimus> (you do)
[22:10] <DM_ToA> You manage to step in between the blades, even as one strikes you on the thigh.
[22:10] <Terres> (spleen tanking again are we?)
[22:10] <Stolanimus> (a DC or an AC is a target number)
[22:10] * Dylan grunts
[22:10] <Dylan> “More traps”
[22:11] <DM_ToA> Four blades swing back and forth whistling in the dry temple air.
[22:11] <Ash> “Not again.”
[22:11] <Terres> ” I did doubt there would be only that one at the entrance“)
[22:11] <Dylan> (oh are they like…)
[22:12] <Dylan> (
[22:12] <Dylan> (that?)
[22:12] <DM_ToA> (exactly)
[22:13] <DM_ToA> (but one of them has blood on it)
[22:14] * Dylan waits for the blade to swing past then steps in front of it and repeated the process until he has crossed the blades
[22:14] <Dylan> (how many are there?)
[22:15] <DM_ToA> (4)
[22:15] <Dylan> (i'm pulling a richard gere in first knight)
[22:15] <DM_ToA> (If you want to try to manuver around them, it's a Dex saving throw, DC 13)
[22:15] <Dylan> 4 1d20+2 DC 13
[22:16] <Dylan> 4d20+2 DC 13
[22:16] <TolBot> Dylan's 4d20(44)+2 'DC 13']: 46
[22:16] <DM_ToA> (umm…)
[22:16] <Dylan> (nope uhmm how to you make multiple rolls?)
[22:16] <Dylan> 1d20+2 DC 13
[22:16] <TolBot> Dylan's 1d20(8)+2 'DC 13']: 10
[22:16] <Miri> 2#d20+1
[22:16] <DM_ToA> Dylan rips a hole in space and time to get around the axes. Show-off.)
[22:16] <Dylan> 4#1d20+2
[22:16] <TolBot> Dylan's 1d20(18)+2]: 20
[22:17] <Miri> (well that's not it lol)

[22:17] <TolBot> Dylan's 1d20(15)+2]: 17
[22:17] <TolBot> Dylan's 1d20(5)+2]: 7
[22:17] <Ash> (Try 4#1d20+2)
[22:17] <Miri> (ooh i forgot the 1 lol)
[22:17] <DM_ToA> (actually, you need three saves, you got past the first one)
[22:17] <DM_ToA> (so, just count the first three)
[22:17] <Dylan> (ok so two 20's and a 17)
[22:18] <Stolanimus> 1d20+2 DC13 dex save
[22:18] <TolBot> Stolanimus's 1d20(5)+2 'DC13 dex save']: 7 (Fail)
[22:18] <DM_ToA> Dylan – even on a wounded thigh – manages to artfully weave around the blades.
[22:18] <DM_ToA> Stolanimus on the other hand, gets struck with the blade within seconds of stepping up.
[22:18] <Dylan> “Well that was a close shave”
[22:18] * Miri begins watching the timing of the swings on the axes as best she can from the back.
[22:19] <DM_ToA> (Stol – take 23 points of damage)
[22:19] <Kayalia> (Waaahhhh! What's the point of all this! We don't even know if anything worthwhile is down here! SOB)
[22:20] <DM_ToA> (Welcome to adventuring – whatever doesn't kill you will hopefully make enough money to cover expenses)
[22:20] <DM_ToA> (Stol – continuing on?)
[22:21] * Stolanimus stops to catch his breath.
[22:21] * Ash looks for a way to turn off this trap
[22:21] <Stolanimus> (how wide / tall is the corridor)
[22:22] * Dylan looks around to see if there
[22:22] <DM_ToA> (23 feet high, 10 feet wide)
[22:22] * Dylan looks around
[22:23] <Dylan> “Hold up…“
[22:23] * Stolanimus morphs into a giant spider and climbs the wall and onto the ceiling to move around the blades.
[22:23] <Ash> “Anybody have a hammer and spike, or something similar?”
[22:23] <Dylan> “Wow… gross”
[22:24] <Miri> (what is the material the axes are swinging from? wood poles? metal ones? what?)
[22:24] * Dylan pulls out his club and jams it into the pivot
[22:25] <DM_ToA> (make a Strength check, Dylan)
[22:25] <Dylan> 1d20+2
[22:25] <TolBot> Dylan's 1d20(6)+2]: 8
[22:25] <DM_ToA> (wooden poles attached to a loose wooden pivot)
[22:25] <DM_ToA> You club gets in there, but is pushed out by the force of the swinging blades.
[22:25] <Dylan> (guess i didnt make the DC)
[22:25] * Dylan tries again
[22:25] <DM_ToA> (DC 10)
[22:26] <Dylan> 1d20+2
[22:26] <TolBot> Dylan's 1d20(3)+2]: 5
[22:26] <Dylan> “Ok once more with feeling”
[22:26] <Dylan> 1d20+2
[22:26] <TolBot> Dylan's 1d20(19)+2]: 21
[22:26] <DM_ToA> Dylan – a giant spider lands next to you, waving it's forelegs at you.
[22:27] <DM_ToA> The wooden club manages to get into a gap and the wooden pole wobbles a couple of times before it comes to a stop.
[22:27] <Dylan> (did I see him change?)
[22:27] * Dylan edges away from Stol
[22:28] <DM_ToA> (Yes)
[22:28] <DM_ToA> (anyone else coming through needs to make only three checks)
[22:28] <Dylan> “Couldn't you have chosen some less… yuck” Dylan complains
[22:28] <Dylan> (oh i only stopped one?)
[22:28] <DM_ToA> (Yeah)
[22:29] * Kayalia bites her lower lip, looking at the choice of critter Stol turned into.
[22:29] * Miri walks up and throws a hand axe at the next one in an attempt to cut the wooden pole.
[22:29] <Dylan> “Ok so.. does anyone else have something to else we can use?)
[22:29] <DM_ToA> Miri – roll to hit)
[22:29] <Miri> 1d20+6
[22:29] <TolBot> Miri's 1d20(13)+6]: 19
[22:29] <DM_ToA> (!)
[22:30] <Miri> (roll damage?)
[22:30] <Dylan> “Can you use your webbing to clog up that last pivot?”
[22:30] <DM_ToA> Miri grunts as she throws her axe. It make a ripping-cloth sound in the air, striking the trap pole with authority. The wood splinters and the axe blade continues forward, snapping and landing on hte floor with a *CLANG*
[22:31] <Miri> (there's 2 left isn't there?)
[22:31] * Dylan humms something which would sound like Spiderman theme song in the meta game
[22:31] <DM_ToA> (Yep)
[22:32] * Miri throws her other hand axe to try at the next one.
[22:32] <Miri> 1d20+6
[22:32] <TolBot> Miri's 1d20(13)+6]: 19
[22:33] * Dylan picks up an axe and jams the hilt into the remaining pivot
[22:33] <Dylan> 1d20+2 dc 10
[22:33] <TolBot> Dylan's 1d20(16)+2 'dc 10']: 18
[22:33] <DM_ToA> The wood snaps and sends the blade down.
[22:33] * Miri will pick up her hand axes when she passes them before retaking her place at the back of the group.
[22:33] * Terres watches as the others make short work of the traps
[22:33] <DM_ToA> Dylan manages to hammer the final one into stillness. Now all the blades are still in one way or the other.
[22:34] <DM_ToA> Terres = supervisor)
[22:34] <Terres> “Good job Everyone”
[22:34] * Dylan waits on the other end for everyone to go past
[22:34] * Ash advances to address injuries.
[22:34] <Ash> (Who other than Spider-Tol got injuried?)
[22:34] <DM_ToA> roll heal Ash (brb
[22:34] * Terres makes his way past the disabled traps inspecting them and making approving sounds
[22:34] <Dylan> (i did, i think i can heal though?)
[22:35] * Ash treats Dylan's injury.
[22:35] <Ash> 1d6+9 hp
[22:35] <TolBot> Ash's 1d6(2)+9 'hp']: 11
[22:35] * Ash then attempts to treat Stolaniums'
[22:36] <Ash> 1d6+9 hp
[22:36] <TolBot> Ash's 1d6(6)+9 'hp']: 15
[22:36] * Kayalia probably could have dodged the blades, but prefers not unnecessary taking risks.
[22:36] <Kayalia> “Thanks guys.” She walks forward and gives the spider a wide berth.
[22:36] <Ash> “I'm getting pretty proficient with this healer's kit.
[22:36] * Ash admires his handy work, particularly on the bandaged spider.
[22:37] <Dylan> (btw)
[22:38] <Dylan> (i changed my monitor setup to two monitors, this definitely works better for game)
[22:38] <DM_ToA> (I need to set up two monitors for this…)
[22:38] <DM_ToA> (or get one of those mini-USB screens)
[22:38] <DM_ToA> (Healed up, ready to continue on?)
[22:39] <Terres> (one monitor for chat, one for character and references/maps)
[22:39] * Dylan moves on (1st)
[22:39] * Terres follows Dylan
[22:39] <DM_ToA> (I assume the marching order is the same?)
[22:40] <Ash> (yes)
[22:40] <Dylan> “It's time's like this I wish I had a bard to write our exploits. Like Tarr the Bard who wrote about the great Mollers”
[22:40] <DM_ToA> As you continue up the hallway… there is a 7 foot high ledge ahead of you, blocking the rest of the hallway.
[22:40] <Ash> “Who is Tarr?”
[22:40] <Miri> (everyone knows scanlin best bard)
[22:40] * Ash looks over at Dylan quizzically.
[22:41] <Dylan> (see what I did there? :P)
[22:41] <Terres> “You want our failures documented?”
[22:41] <Ash> (OOC I know.)
[22:41] <Miri> (i don't know)
[22:41] <Dylan> “He was the author of some books I read as a child. The travelling story people would sing his songs”
[22:41] <Ash> (My old campaign that this channel is named after.)
[22:41] <Miri> (aah)
[22:41] <DM_ToA> (Doty – take this down)
[22:42] <Miri> (do you know how hard it was not to make my CR reference in game?!)
[22:42] <Ash> “This place feels too much like that demon's dungeon. Which reminds me, at some point we should see if there is anything of value in that tower it lived in.”
[22:42] <Dylan> (CR?)
[22:42] <DM_ToA> (Critical Role)
[22:42] <Miri> (^)
[22:42] <Dylan> (riiight)
[22:43] <Miri> (how have you at least not heard of Critical role?!)
[22:43] <Dylan> (i need to check that out more don't I? I met the creators last year)
[22:43] <Miri> (you met matt mercer?!)
[22:43] <Dylan> (at wonder con)
[22:43] <DM_ToA> (Back to the Ledge of Blocking)
[22:43] <Miri> (lucky!)
[22:43] <Miri> (yes, sorry)
[22:44] <Dylan> (it's on the list, along with Worm)
[22:44] <Miri> (don't know that one)
[22:44] <Miri> (is the ledge made of stone?)
[22:44] <DM_ToA> (yep, same stone as the walls)
[22:45] <Miri> (how wide does the top look? like could someone stand on it? also could someone climb the ledge?)
[22:45] <Dylan> (oh i retrieve the club and axe one everyone is through)
[22:45] <Kayalia> “I prefer the epics told through song and dance.”
[22:45] * Dylan shrugs
[22:46] <DM_ToA> (if someone got on someone's shoulders, then they could pull themsevles up)
[22:46] <Dylan> “You take what you can get when you live on a farm. It's was always a great time when the travelling singer came through, with his patched colored cloak”
[22:46] * Ash shrugs
[22:46] <Dylan> “People would come from kilometers to see the gleeman”
[22:47] <Ash> “I wouldn't know what that is like.”
[22:47] <Terres> “Can anyone see whats up there?”
[22:47] <Miri> “I say we send the spider to scout what's on the other side”
[22:47] * Dylan shrugs
[22:47] <Dylan> “Ok”
[22:47] * Stolanimus moves along on the ceiling, above the group, scouting.
[22:48] <DM_ToA> As Stolanimus creeps up the wall and looks over…
[22:50] <Stolanimus> 1d20+7 DC13 preception
[22:50] <TolBot> Stolanimus's 1d20(12)+7 'DC13 preception']: 19 (Success)
[22:51] * Stolanimus turns to look down at the others, then moves up.
[22:52] <DM_ToA> (Along the wall?)
[22:53] * Stolanimus moves along the wall and the ceiling and above a particular square on the floor.
[22:53] <Dylan> (i'm gonna have to go for dinner at 9pst/12 EST)
[22:53] <Miri> (what's that lassy? timmy fell down a well?)
[22:53] <Stolanimus> (you coulda just said in 7 minutes)
[22:53] <DM_ToA> You see your creepy friend take a position on the cieling.
[22:53] <DM_ToA> (6 minutes)
[22:54] * Stolanimus attempts to drop a stone from the ceiling onto the square he noticed.
[22:54] <DM_ToA> A stone drops from the spider to tap on a tile on the ledge above you.
[22:55] * Stolanimus moves back down to the others if nothing happens.
[22:55] <Dylan> (side note, the next two weekends i will be in Toronto, but i am hoping to still make it to games)
[22:57] <DM_ToA> As the spider skitters back down to the group…
* tonights session comes to a close
