After your trip into the goblin tribe’s ruins you took some time to sort through the loot you’ve found so far and have given away the useless junk you seem to find everywhere. The goblins have been busy carving up the spider corpses turning their sharp sword like legs into various pieces of chitin weaponry. You’ve even managed to mostly piece together the goblin’s history from the depictions from inside the ruins, not a bad day’s work.Updated scavenged loothttp://pastebin.com/zbTUX04UThe shaman still tells of two places that you may find of particular note - an old catacomb filled with forgotten and evil magic and a vast sludge lake where the largest crab is known to lurk the depths. You could also try to figure out some more magic or play around with some of the things you’ve found to try and determine just what it is that they do.> Crab lake> Forgotten tomb> Try to tame spiders> Magic items> OtherWelcome back to Afterlife Quest!Twitter: https://twitter.com/ApophisquestsTGAskfm: http://ask.fm/ApophisTGPastebins: http://pastebin.com/u/ApophisTG

With the ruins thoroughly looted and all the monsters mostly cleared out you ask the shaman to direct the tribe’s caravan to the old tombs. During the trip you sit down and try to read and absorb the magic in your book of spells – >27 vs dc 23 passAt first you feel the magic fighting against you and threatening to consume you but then you understand that the magic isn’t actually harming you but rather it is filling your magical reserves pushing them beyond your normal limits.>Ability gained Wellspring Rank 1> Complex magics take significant magical reserves to utilize, the wellspring ability was described by your magical book as a method of training to expand one’s natural magic reserves.

Squads 2,3,4The squads open the door prepared for another fight only to find – that the north and east walls of the room have been engraved with endless spirals and several pieces of rotten fruit are scattered throughout the room. So they continue exploring, one goblin triggers a net trap but with nothing around to attack them the goblins make their way through it unharmed. All they find in the end is several more dead ends, so they head back to regroup with you.>Squads status: 3 big, 35 goblinsSquads C, 1>massive awareness bonusWhen you open the door there is a narrow pit covered by iron bars in the north side of the room and a shallow pool of oil lies in the south-west corner of the room.

You backtrack to the stairs down preparing to face whatever evil is waiting. Down the stairs is along empty hallway lined with columns carved with strange symbols – the symbols pulse with blood red light. At the end of hall an ornate door opens unbidden as a dry voice emanates from within, “Return the book and you will die quickly.”A skeletal figure in a decaying robe directs two heavily armored skeletons and a strange skeletal beast to attack you.You:> Attack (who)> Throw (what)> Grapple (who)> Flee> OtherUse bless> Y> NGoblins:> Attack (who)> Defend> Distraction (who)> Flee> Other

The evil skeletal mage casts some foul magic on the two armored brutes, but is then too slow to escape from you. With a quick slash you sever one of the skeleton’s arms causing its magic staff to clatter to the ground.Your goblin backup tries to distract the armored skeletons but to no avail - the armored brutes just smash and cleave their way through the goblins without trouble. In better news the strange skeletal monstrosity just flexes and clatters its bones about, your quick decent has apparently not given the necromantic magic time to fully waken creature.

An army of goblins then descend the stairs spilling into the tomb ready for anything.“Shaman no come say,” one of them starts.“Deathtrap!” Another interjects and the rest of the goblins begin to chant it as well.Goblin status: 3 big, 128 goblins> Break it> Just leave it behind, loot the rest> Other

When we finish with the tomb, we ought to have a word with the shaman about the gathering. I suspect that scientists may have encouraged the gathering to start, to keep goblins weak. Think about it - it not only keeps the tribes separated from each other except for the gathering, but it sends the strongest member of each tribe save for the winner to death. This weakens all tribes except the winning tribe, and stops goblins from being mighty.
>>41715413>Break it>Commence lootingJesus... 130 goblins? That's a lot of looting.
>>41715473Sounds good.>>41715531We will own them all. So it doesn't matter.
>>41715716It matters. We dont own them yet.
>>41715531Maybe suggest like a goblympics, where the tribes compete in nonlethal competitions.I think that the separate tribes are a good thing. And if the tribes mingle too much some magics might be lost.
>>41715773I like this. Encourages training, too.
>>41715785Yeah and the winner still gets the good land. So, that most of goblin society stays the same.
>>41715473>>41715481>>41715702>Break itYou resolve to break this damned thing to kill the lich once and for all. It takes a bit of work but the staff itself proves easy enough to snap and set on fire. The real problem is the large black gem that was set into the top of the staff – you try everything the goblins bring hammers, a blowtorch, chisels, the Sickeater dagger, you even tried just throwing it against a wall but nothing put so much as a scratch on the damn thing.A disembodied voice taunts you, “Fools you can not harm my phylactery with your pathetic power!” So just to spite the bastard you put it inside the lightning trap and trigger it a few times. When you go to collect it you see that it is covered by hairline fractures – so you leave it there and have goblins toss stuff into the trap’s trigger repeatedly until the thing shatters. Now that that is resolved you can get started on the real reason anyone comes to old abandoned tombs, loot!>[ End ]1d100 first three for loot, one for each floor.That will be it for today.I’ll stick around for questions/comments/criticism/spending exp.Lootbin update soon>You finished a thread, thanks for playing +10exp>Murdered the forgotten lich lord +10exp> Plundered a lich lord’s spell book +10exp>Completed one goal +2 exp> CAN’T STUMP THE TRUMP debate bonus experience +10exp>Current total exp total: 42 exp
Rolled 50 (1d100)>>41716007Looooot!
Rolled 33 (1d100)>>41716007Who would have won if we didnt go to the gathering?Did any tribes not go to the gathering?What was the trap dc?
>>41716054There are just ten tribes so everyone was there this time, and the Darkfury tribe would have won you their warrior rolled really badly and you guys rolled high so he got destroyed. Unlike most goblins who are replaceable mooks he had 5 hp.The book was dc 15 to not die, 20 to take minimum damage and 30 to take no damage. If you had killed the lich first the trap would have had -10 to all its dcs.
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>41716007
>>41716246Could we have killed the Lich or was the regenerating triggered in part by us stealing the book?
Will polyglot help to decipher books?
>>41716293You could have killed him easier.Stealing the book triggered the regeneration effect and his protections on the phylactery, and if the vote didn’t swing to heading directly into the fight he would have had raised a lot more death knights to protect him
Cryptology is widely used in espionage, and has the potential of being a skill we know
>>41716375Sure, let’s say 10% bonus per rank.Finishing up loot now.
Have the spiderlings hatched yet? We should keep the eggs in some kind of cage to prevent chaos.
>>41716522do we have a cage?
>>41716565Cant be hard to make oneThe caravans were made i assume
>>41716522>>41716565>>41716592They have not hatched yet. And something can be rigged up to hold them.
>>41716904Hows the goblin pastebin btw?
>>41717090Completely derailed by me watching the debate.Anyone have exp expenditures?
>>41717362Ill type one up in a sec. Will cryptography be a skill at all?
>>41717374I'm thinking on just folding into polyglot and giving some ranks in that to compensate.
>>41717427Works for me.
So what does the madblade do?
42Wellspring to two39Badass to six18Ki strike to four2 Exp left over
>>41717479You didn’t keep it long enough to know, you guys gave it back to them I believe. You can always try to get it back to find out.
Oh right, and we can do the magical item checks again, right?
>>41717692Sure, if someone is going to roll there are 4 new ones as well to try for. Just about finished with the loot.
Rolled 6, 7, 2, 7, 6, 2, 4, 8 = 42 (8d10)>>41717779
>>41717779Whats the roll for it gonna be?
>>41717619This works for me, we can pretty much wreck a lot of things with one slash, and we have even more mana.
>>41717779I forget which items in the backpack are magic. Could you asterisk them too?
>>41717850Done, I think I got them all.>>41717812Loot updatedhttp://pastebin.com/zbTUX04UIf someone picks an order I'll use that, else I'll just start from the first unknown thing.
Rolled 6, 9, 3, 1, 4, 2, 9, 3, 10, 9, 4, 4 = 64 (12d10)>>41717930Do it your way
Rolled 5, 4, 6, 10, 2, 1, 4, 2, 7, 8, 2, 7 = 58 (12d10)>>41717970I dunno how many unknown things we got but its fine if we roll too many because extras can be discarded
>>41717930Let's get rid of any skulls, skeletons, or bodies, that are not magical. Also, any weapons and armor of small or tiny size, as long as they aren't magical.
>>41717930With the 500 human skeletons we looted, that necromancer could have created an army. With this many bones almost every member of the tribe could probably live up to the bone part of the tribe name.
>>41718128We dont need any of the nonmagical weapons, its safe to give all of them away. Definitely have all the tribesmen fashion bone armor though.Maybe even a bone cage.
>41718237Good think you killed him then I guess.Leaving him down there would have caused problems for you later.
>>41718263I think we just got some magical scale mail, so we might consider getting rid of non magic armor too
N/A means you didn't learn anything other than what is listed in your inventory.> 6,7+2 - phone - N/A> 2,7+2 - seeds - N/A> 6,2+2 - dragonscale - N/A> 4,8+2 - lamp - N/A> 6,9+2 - dire flail - This large flail is cold to the touch. It has been enchanted to cause frostbite when it strikes. (+1 cold damage)> 3,1+2 - ring - N/A> 4,2+2 - iron shield - N/A> 9,3+2 - iron great sword - This enchanted sword has an extremely sharp edge and it cackles with electricity. (+1 mundane and electric damage) The blade of the sword is transparent and wispy, indicating that it may have and additional function. > 10,9+2 - steel scale mail - This suit of armor has been enchanted to be supernaturally light and quiet. It also grants the wearer resistance to acids.> 4,4+2 - large crystal - This gem appears to be magical. It rhythmically pulses with unknown magic begging to be released.> 5,4+2 - steel necklace - This necklace appears to be magical. It absorbs mana somehow.I think that is all your magic things other than books which are also unchanged.
>>41718263Wait, let's get rid of only the non magic melee weapons, we need to check if the throwing and distance weapons we could bring with. Hell we need to find out what we can put in the bags and pouches we have, plus what we might be able to fit in that hyper cube.
Rolled 6, 9 + 2 = 17 (2d10 + 2)>>41718529What about the paired magic mirrors?Is this good enough to learn anything new?Please be good enough.
>>41718616Mirrors - These plainly decorated mirrors are linked together as a pair when something is passed through the face of one mirror it appears at the other paired mirror.
>>41718536I only said the nonmagic ones were useless to us. I didnt suggest getting rid of magic ones.Equip Steel scale mail and iron greatsword>>41717427Whats our new polyglot rank?
>>41718699Yes, you said all non magic weapons, I was just trying to say we might not want to include throwing weapons in that group.
Did you include the lichs book in our examinations?Its not listed on charsheet
>>41718699Rank 3.>>41718796I didn't put it in yet, do you want to try and examine it? It is clearly horribly cursed.
Rolled 8, 6 + 2 = 16 (2d10 + 2)>>41718864Maybe ask the shaman to help us look over it. Maybe he can help disable some curses? At any rate, working together we might be able to identify some curses magically.
>>41718926>examine curses not book itself – clever.The lich’s spellbook is dense with magic making identifying even a single layer of its protections nearly impossible but with the shaman’s help you are able to discover that the book is safe to keep and carry around. If you were to open the book you will suffer from the lich’s touch (unknown curse high dc). Actually trying to read the book will likely result in more depraved energies being released against you.
>>41719049So do any magic weapons hit nonphysical entities?Say we swing the flail of cold at a ghost, would it affect it at all, or would only the cold damage kick in, or would it deal damage normally since it is magical? Which I assume cold won't work too well on the dead.Because if being ethereal just negates all physical damage, having a ghostly greatsword sounds neat.
>>41719129Ki strike and other sources of magical damage would apply to incorporeal beings, they otherwise negate all mundane damage.
Does the shaman know any level two spells? Because we have twenty int now.
>>41719270He has a few tricks you may be able to wring out of him yes. With your low mana though casting them will be difficult.
>>41719383Excellent, learning is good!Also in retrospect we could have used the mirror to send the rod to the shaman. I wonder if he'd be stoked About that?What were the details of the staff anyways?
>>41719452The lich was pretty crazy, the staff was using its phylactery as a magical focus to provide a bunch of passive bonuses to undead in the area. If you guys didn’t immediately rush him and he could start spell slinging the fight would have gone south very fast, he was a glass cannon.
>>41719551I guess the darkfury werent Brave enough to deal with liches and fishpeople and spiders, huh?
>>41719723I don't think that's quite it.Note the mountains of goblin skulls.
>>41719551So, would the mirrors have bypassed the enchantment of not being able to take the staff out?
>>41719973I would have rolled to see if mirrors worked, got destroyed or caused the staff to get teleported someplace else as a side effect of the staff’s protections. There was potential to send the lich up above somewhere causing a pretty big change in what is going on
>>41720081Was the lich trapped there by someone else's design?
http://pastebin.com/kF6K8dBDThis is my suggestion on loot and a few other things.
>>41720467This works for me, it'll make the bonetooth caravans look better at the very least.
