Hi,

Do you mind keeping track of your HP in a sig from now on? I'm losing focus with work and other things and I have made a few mistakes recently. Bruce had already healed 8 hit points by the time the worm came, and everyone else had already gained +2. Sorry.

You fix the barricade and retreat into the secret room. Kilian drinks another half dose. As far as I know you have 2 full potions left (4 doses).

The noise of battle above dies down and you can't hear anything.

Overnight Kilian gets back 6 hp extra from the potion. He is now on 13 - still quite injured but everyone else is basically fine. He gets 2 back a day, 3 with full rest. Here are the totals:

Freya HP 16 AC 16 (18 two weapons)
Kilian HP 13/24 AC 18 (17 no shield)
Talin HP 23 AC 15
Tiana HP 9 AC 12
Fido AC 16 HP 6
Anna HP 6 AC 12
Bruce HP 10 / 11 AC 15 (14 no shield)

It's the morning of the 29th of August. Nothing in wormy's stomach other than the usual rabbits. It must be able to get outside somehow, you think.
Woe

Can Giovanni speak with the dead and find out what they know?

And that brings up another point: What is the standard medical insurance package that we are offering? Is this considered a job related incident, and is resurrection covered as part of the medical benefit?s?
Freya HP 24/24 AC 16 (17 two weapons)
Kilian HP 20/20 AC 19 (18 no shield)
Talin HP 29 AC 16
Tiana HP 11 AC 12 SP 8/8
Fido HP 9/9 AC 16
Anna HP 12/12 AC 15 (19 defensively)
Bruce HP 20/20 AC 16 (15 no shield)

And this is clearly one of those first world problems... using a phone to post to BFRPG while not driving while commuting home. :D

Is this because I've been doing so well with my accuracy on encumbrance and food consumption? :lol:

I've used two, so two left.

Any indication who won?

During the healing/resting part for the rest of the night

"Wow, I thought that worm was going to swallow you whole." says Freya.

Kilian scoffs. "Heh. Gonna take a lot more worm dan dat to eat dwarf." But silently, he agrees with her, and Freya notices. Later, she offers him the magical ring "for safekeeping, since it's magical and he's the strongest warrior to keep it safe." He grudgingly accepts it and puts it on his pinky.

Also during the night, Talin finally fixes that &#@$ broken crossbow that James has been lugging around for days, and Kilian will take a look at the busted hammer.

The next day...
I think we'll tackle the golems again, because I'd like to go deeper into the mines and see what else we find. Well... I'm not completely sure because the golems are a tough challenge and the worms are a tough challenge, and if there's still goblins above they'd be a tough challenge too. Kilian is a bit bruised but I'm not sure I want to use another healing potion so soon. What do the NPCs think?

For me, things are going through a slightly awkward phase in this campaign right now. My problem isn't posting on the phone - it's relying on the search function instead of keeping track of basic stuff in a word document...it just gets too complicated.

But hopefully, this game is about to enter a new phase when you hit 4th level (except Tiana).

At that point I will thoroughly review the characters for persistent small errors that keep creeping in and make some notes on how everything works re AC, HP, AB, etc.

I think we can get this rebooted OK in the next few weeks. Thanks for hanging in there.

You can still hear dogs. So...maybe the dogs won. Whatever they were...

I thought you had 3 whole potions (6 doses) and had used 2 doses.

Talin succeeds in fixing the bow.

The NPCs want to take a sneak peek out the outer door and see what is going on.

You can do that, or attack the golems. I'm pretty busy this weekend (birthday) so will handle that on Monday.

Back now - what's your plan? You want to go over the bridge again? (Were you waiting on me to post?)

The party listens to what the NPCs want to do.

"Hmm... I wouldn't mind seeing some sunlight first, before tackling the golems." says Talin.

"And I wouldn't mind someone seeing some bathwater too." says Freya, wrinkling up her nose at Kilian.

"Wot? Deese ruins are amazing. Tiana, you want to stay roight? Dink of the maps!" exclaims Kilian.

"I do want to stay, but let's see what happened with the goblin/dog war first. It will be a quick peek, no more than an hour." the cartographer replies.
