I'll happily kick in an AD or 2 to have him fall down the stairs if that helps.

Is Lars part of the whisper spell at this point?

Both from the barkeep situation and from a Leona standpoint.


Sharpening his knife is likely to be Lars' next move upon hearing Leona's objections.  Can we parley that into role playing efforts?

Amusing does not begin to describe the pictures in my head as I read this.

I've read the books that followed the original line of thought from the creators of Stargate.  The concepts were bad; however, they were no where near as good as SG-1.

Time will tell.  Might be good after suffering from low expectations.

Between and Infernalist and a Priest who shares the alignment, they can be trusted as far as makes sense.

Which may not be all that far, but farther than a farmer's wife at the crossroads at midnight could trust them.

The idea being that the devils take the horn in trade for the mace but they only tell us where it can be found because for some reason they can't easily lay had on it themselves. Fortunately it's nearby...

I can't help but think that the ellipse is hiding the lack of important details.  Something like the mace is now in a secure vault within the keep's dungeon sitting on a Mitran blessed altar or some such.

I would imagine Lars would have similar concerns unless the devils would draft a contract stating why they can't get the weapon.

My favorite show as a kid.  May have to kick some cash Mr. Burton's way.

Being a priest of Asmodeus, Lars would be OK with option 1.  However, he'd want to review the inevitable contract very carefully.

EDIT: There would be an upper limit, maybe 15 to 20 heads. I think Pathfinder puts a limit on it, and in Dungeon Crawl it stops at 20 heads. It's still insane, yeah, but like I said - I'm not going to risk getting eaten to produce "the ultimate monster". Not to mention it would cost a lot of action dice.

Additionally, as a foil, what's stopping me from making an Animal Partner with Splitter and just cloning it endlessly the conventional way? Instead of more heads, I'd get more... monsters.

There should probably be a caveat on there about "only edged weapons" being able to sever a head, and something about fire damage cauterizing the wound before the heads grow, but I didn't want to get too far into that yet. It's just a houserule right now.

All of the above is good thinking.  Something to keep in mind: the NPC system was designed for NPC's which means that you can break things when it is a character run NPC.  Sure, XP limits prevent the worst abuses, but they still happen.  I was just pointing out that the sorts of limits you mentioned needed to be in place at some level.

Those poor kids had never been able to think outside the box before in their gaming because of their computer/console introduction to it. If this had been a raid in WoW, their wouldn't have been able to make their own doors, so the thought of doing it was alien to them. The lack of out of combat awesome in 4th only reenforced that lack of critical thinking for that group. Sad.

Truly sad.  This is why I have to get my kids to play games with me.  I don't want their imaginations to wither under the soft glow of the computer screen.

Not buying the permanent bit.  Seems like I could create an unstoppable monster by cutting the heads off my pet hydra.  Sure the GM could rule that the hydra now hates me ... but still.

Perhaps heads that last until the next scene or at most the next adventure?  Say, capped at the number of starting AD you have?

Lars mumbles in his sleep, "My lord?"  He rolls over and shrugs off his blanket.  "What dost thou want of me?"  He thrashes about before adding, "I don't understand.  Are we not to seek power?"  With a sudden start he sits up and cries out.  He feels foolish only for an instant before realizing that he has been in contact with infernal powers.  He gets up and lights a candle and removes his copy of the scriptures from their hiding place and begins consulting them.  An hour or so later he begins prayers and doesn't stop for some time.  When he falls silent the words of a particular passage come back to him in complete clarity:

"Power is not always the sword.  Those who see the sword fear only momentarily and know you to be an enemy.  True power is having the prey help their own destruction with a smile on their face and your arm across their shoulders."

Spent, Lars throws himself back on the bed.  "It would appear my master doesn't need another sword but rather someone who can think, plot and bear his power."

I think the inn keeper should have an unfortunate 'accident' going back up the stairs to his room and be found in the morning, breath reeking of the contents of the empty bottle of wine/spirits/something potent lying next to him that is as broken as his neck.

I like.   Evil

I'll certainly read Basic, and not because its free but because its setting-free and I really don't like the ego projection WANKFEST that is Forgotten Realms. Any other setting they've ever done, I'd probably be onboard.

This.  I'll take a look and see what's there.  However, I won't be holding my breath.

The previous entry made me think of something on DA.  So as not to violate terms of service, I'm providing a link:

Winter is coming, and Mab is laughing.

I've re-read the thread but can't find where the silver got split up between us.  I don't mind someone else "holding the bag" so to speak, however, I need to put that info on my character sheet.

Also, Lars had been planning to sleep unless the Whispered plan was to stay awake.  It's not obvious to me that we were all planning on being awake, so I'll assume he's sleeping.

Thus, no post for a little bit.
