Glad to hear it, Alex!

I must say that after reading your explanation of what has gone on my Cyberpunk sense was tingling with "well, that's a Cyberpunk corporate move in order to get more money - periodically attack your clients so you can raise their rates and perhaps buy a premium package..." Glad to see you moved on from them.

"I do have learned the basics of remote viewing, but in this case it would be of no use since I must have visited the places I'm looking at.
But in any case I suspect that soon most of the available men will try to get here to stop the fire and rescue their lord. It would be fortuitous to be somewhere else when that happens.

More minions on our side certainly would not be a bad idea. For now, let's fly."

Creamor nodded to the group and went up the stairs to summon once more a giant owl.

An afterthought occurs to Drin. "Or, if you would prefer, I can stay here and summon forth some trouble to keep the guards  busy trying not to get massacred while you march on the gate."

Hello all,

Well, after being effectively shaken down by our now-former security firm (SiteLock) over the last 3 days to increase our fees by 150% in order to theoretically solve the problems we've been having the last week, I have taken the appropriate road, told them to go fuck themselves, and got a new more-focused outfit - Sucuri. The new team found the attack vector and removed the backdoors that were leading to reinfection in the space of 3 hours (!!) and we're back to trying to get Google to de-blacklist us. All passwords have been changed, targetted files hardened, the offending plugin that was being exploited has been deleted entirely until it is patched and we're now behind a professional-grade Web Application Firewall.

Very likely this is the end of our troubles, but the good news is our new setup scans our entire site every 6 hours (unlike, surprisingly, the previous "service" which would literally take days to scan our entire site- WTF) and will address any malware infections in a similar period of time. We get full reports of what happened, why,and where so we don't fall into bad habits. It's pretty great.

Anyway, just so you know, your info is safe - this is a typical malware redirection hijack that was triggering off some open-source form software we hadn't even made public yet.

I was thinking disarm actions + the trick that allows you to take an opponent's weapon + the swallow property, which could be a little kinder since it only removes the weapons until you have time to perform a gastrostomy.

since we're speaking about this, any way to make a monster able to crunch items without the sword feats?
Just adding ap and keen to its attacks I suppose?

"Unfortunately, we do not live in an ideal world. Scrying is a magic art I have yet to study, and any other means would take too long, since the faster we get to the gate, the less organised its defence should be. Once we have taken the gate, however, I would be very happy to summon a few devils and infernal beasts to hunt down the remaining defenders for us."

"A character of Medium or larger Size may use a 2-handed
weapon with one hand, but suffers a 4 penalty with his attack
check. Conversely, a character may hold a 1-handed weapon
with both hands, in which case his Strength score increases by 2
when determining damage."

Suppose I'm wielding a halberd in one hand at -4 and a claymore in the other at no penalty from Monkey Grip. Could I switch at will which one is penalized? As a GM I would rule that it's a Handle Item action.

I don't know why I'm asking since I don't think any player would ever do this, but hey I'm bored and I'm imagining a large unborn with six arms and six hurl battering rams.

You could rule it as a handle item check or just say that he chooses at the beginning of each round. You could also rule that he chooses the weapon on entering the stance or just smack him and say "NO! BAD! BAD PLAYER!"
