Sunday should be good for me, too. I don't know about rockz, though.

As for identifying stuff, I won't be very useful. :P What're the AC and dex penalty on that breastplate?

Still Napping

I'll be there as an observer (first weekend off in like 3 months).

ᴄʜᴇᴇsᴇ ɪᴛ!

sounds like the lenses of shadow are mine. Do they fit my head?
I doubt I can use the poison.

appraise +4
diplomacy +12, see if black's got any knowledge on this stuff, mainly blind's book. He's a shadow, right?
perception +9 though I think we got everything.
use magic device +7 as a last ditch effort to try to open the book (hopefully spellcraft and such will open it.)
local knowledge +5 on the book as well

also, muleback cords and +1 armor/shield of resistance? How sweet. Now iomea won't be running around at 10 feet.

AC is going to be at least +7, shield at least +3. Armor check is -2 on shield, -3 on armor, and max dex is +3. I might grab it and go beat some folks up, but that's only if it can resize itself.

As I said before, this saturday is likely bad. Not sure when I'll get back. Next saturday I'll be out as well. Sunday seems to be my good day.

The cords are indeed Muleback Cords -

These thick leather cords wrap around the wearer's biceps and shoulders; when worn, they make the muscles appear larger than normal. The wearer treats his Strength score as 8 higher than normal when determining his carrying capacity. This bonus does not apply to combat, breaking items, or any other Strength-related rolls except the amount of equipment or material the wearer can carry.

The armor and shield are a strange pair that do not actually have an AC modifier, but they do each provide Acid Resistance 5 which stacks with each other. This is not a normal type of enchantment.

The jet gems should sell for 50 - 100 gp each. The crown w/ black pearl should sell for 500~ gp.

Diplomacy about the book (Success) - He says he does know how to open it, but it is intended as a trial to teach more about using darkness in your magic.

Rockz's use magic device check was quite high and as a result he figures out how to open it. Seems you need to close your eyes tightly, looking into the darkness of your eyelids, and then open the book while doing so. It is a spellbook with a useful ritual attached and a recipe for black smear poison.

and yes, rockz, the goggles will fit you.

did i miss anything?


May 10 2012, 8:46 pm FatalException Post #245

1. Are we on for Sunday, then?
2. Does this mean I can finally run 30ft? :}


May 10 2012, 10:44 pm Raitaki Post #246

Just to be sure, I'm gonna do checks on everything just to be sure...

Appraise +12 to double check
Spellcraft +13 on the Crown, the book and the poison to try to detect magic from them. Maybe this might help me read the book also?
Arcana Knowledge +12 on the book to try to read it, and maybe on the poison too. And maybe impress Black with mah knowledgez.
Dungeoneering Knowledge +10 on the poison.
If Iomea ever tries to confiscate or destroy the book because of the evil rituals within, attempt to dissuade him, saying that we might need it to foil the duergars' evil rituals or something :wob:

Think that's it for now...:P I'll carry some of the poisons if you guys want, or the book if it weighs under 1 lb :3 (gotta get more str next lv I guess >_>;)


May 11 2012, 1:50 am Pieh Post #247

Rai -
The book is a spellbook containing the following spells (You have successfully translated what they are, but may still have trouble preparing them from the book)

Spells - Level 0 - All from Core, Except Divination and Transmutation spells

Level 1 - Disguise Self, Magic Aura, Magic Missile, Obscuring Mist, Chill Touch (DC 16 Spellcraft to prepare)

Level 2 - Darkness, Blur, Invisibility, Spectral Hand, Blindness/Deafness (DC 17 Spellcraft to prepare)

Level 3 - Displacement (DC 18 Spellcraft to prepare)

This book has a Ritual in it. If you prepare 3 or more spells (above level 0) from the book, you gain access to the ritual's benefit for that day.

The Ritual in this book lets you see unhindered in any kind of darkness (even magical) for 3 rounds. Usable in 1 round increments. Swift action to activate.

There is also a recipe for Enhanced Black Smear poison. Craft (Alchemy) DC 18, costs 5 gp in materials, for:
Type poison (injury); Save Fortitude DC 16; Onset immediate; Frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; Effect 1d4 Str damage; Cure 2 saves.
(This is not an instant process and, considering the time given, will likely not be used)

Everything else seems accurate to you, Rai.

And yeah, Sunday is on. 5pm Eastern good for everyone?


May 11 2012, 4:13 am Raitaki Post #248

Hmm, I see. One question, I can transcribe the spells from the book into my spellbook, correct? Would that need any checks? And how many pages do the book have, and how many pages total are the ritual and the poison recipe? Also how many times can I use the ritual per encounter/day?

Nub question, but can I just subtract the material costs from my character to make the poison, or do I have to be in town and/or buy materials?

Since my Spellcraft is so beast, I'll take 10 for preparing all the spells from this book if that's ok :P


May 11 2012, 3:02 pm Pieh Post #249

You can scribe the spells into your own book with the same DCs given to cast. Taking 10 is fine by me, you have the skill. There is a total of 50 pages in the book, the current content takes up 35. To use the ritual, you need to prepare the spells from the book and have the book present. Adding spells to the book won't let you prepare them to meet the required 3, so adding spells to the book isn't going to be much of a benefit. You can use the ritual for up 3 rounds per day, on a day that you prepare 3 or more spells from the book. So, if you were to use the book to prepare Magic Missile, Chill Touch, and Invisibility you would be able to see through any darkness for 3 rounds throughout that day. You can use the 3 rounds all at once, or in 1 round increments.

For the poison, you'll need to be in a city area to purchase equipment and ingredients, and would also need to spend time working on creating it.

and if I remember correctly, you have about a week to get to the Shadowblind Ruins and mess stuff up.


May 12 2012, 3:16 am Raitaki Post #250

Hmm ok. Then I won't transcribe the spells into my book then. That book is now my 2nd book ;o Should be a while more before I fill up my current spellbook though.
On our journey to Shadowblind Ruins, do we past through any towns? :3c


May 12 2012, 4:42 am Pieh Post #251

You had planned on traveling to a nearby (2 - 3 days of travel) city. You wanted to make sure Borand Hammermund was safely returned to his superiors and inform them of the situation with the outpost. While in town you can do some buying and selling. If you want to make a list beforehand of things you need to buy and what you are going to sell, that would be helpful in making the shopping happen quickly and we can get into the important stuff.

I expect to have a scene talking with the Dwarven guardsman posted here, telling them what you want them to know and making sure Borand will be taken care of.

Then, after city stuff is done, we will pick up as you locate a Shadow Path and attempt to follow it to the ruins. From this point you will have roughly 5 days before the Grey Son is expected to be strong enough to harm your world.


May 12 2012, 3:04 pm rockz Post #252

ᴄʜᴇᴇsᴇ ɪᴛ!

not sure how my dealmaker works. I was thinking about getting black market connections, but it looks like we won't have enough money to utilize it even after selling.

"Parliamentary inquiry, Mr. Chairman - do we have to call the Gentleman a gentleman if he's not one?"

May 12 2012, 4:30 pm Raitaki Post #253

Guys, what feat should I take ;o

EDIT: Shopping, huh...Dunno what to buy, guess I'll buy 20 gp worth of alchemical ingredients (unless the party wants more poison), and try to whip up as much Enhanced Black Smear as possible while traveling from the town. I have Craft (Alchemy) +8, plus and extra +2 circumstance bonus from Masterwork Artisan's Tools. I'll take 10. Assuming we're following the same rules as in here while traveling, I should finish 4 bottles in like 2 days.

Also remember to sell the ale guys :wob:

EDIT 2: If nobody suggests another feat, I'mma just take Weapon Finesse to make my Shadow Weapon more useful ;o

ᴄʜᴇᴇsᴇ ɪᴛ!

I'd be making items like mad.

"Parliamentary inquiry, Mr. Chairman - do we have to call the Gentleman a gentleman if he's not one?"

May 13 2012, 5:12 pm Pieh Post #255

Rai, you can make 2 bottles in 1 week, by my math. Looking at the main entry on the craft skill ( ) you compare you result x DC (yours is 300) to the item costs in silver pieces (150). Since you double that, you can make 1 dose in half the default time (1 week).


May 13 2012, 5:47 pm rockz Post #256

ᴄʜᴇᴇsᴇ ɪᴛ!

I'm in the process of reinstalling windows and having a terrible time with file perimissions. Gonna do my best to get everything set up properly by 5, but I might be a little late.

I'm in #Sen_Dnd if anyone needs anything. Just chilling until game time.

Still waiting on Sac to get his ball rollin :3c Pieh's campaign is over.


Jun 4 2012, 4:52 pm BlueWolf Post #260

Perhaps Pieh should take over the event? I don't think Sac is up for this anymore, since he hasn't replied.
