Turn 41

[highlight=#000000]"Stop Fighting! This is unnecessary. William can you do something!" [/highlight]
"Back off you bloodly fool!"

Image

William zaps Solomon with the last charge in his wand of slumber, but he's not fast enough to stop the two of them from fighting. Drinks hits Solomon hard with his axe, but Solomon is stronger and hits Drinks hard again, knocking him to 0HP! Drinks has shuffled off his mortal coil and is now an ex-goblin.

Image

Drinks is now the second casualty of the GAL and this apparently extremely dangerous dungeon. Solomon, stunned by the sleep spell, slumps back to the floor and reels in confusion.

Back upstairs, Walks decides to get the hell out of here.

"What is done is done. Don't beat yourself up about it, but try to do better in the future. Perhaps you could at least mention that the pool isn't safe to swim in, next time?"

Her advice is met with renewed howls of sorrow from the little ferryman.

"But... Why would anyone - .... Oh never mind. It honestly never occurred to us that anyone would ever WANT to try swimming in that disgusting pool. Seemed like overkill to actually warn folk. But hey ho, now we know."
"Also, do you think you could ferry me across, please? I will pay with the ring, if it is all the same to you."
<sigh> "Hold on. Lucky for you I can paddle this thing myself!"

Image

The ferryman paddles over, accepts Walks's ring in payment and gives her a Return Ferry Ticket in exchange.

"I'm going to assume I don't need to tell you to keep your hands INSIDE the raft."

Walks finally reaches the far bank. Cautiously, she moves into the next area....

Image

And finds herself clear of the dungeon! A little path leads onwards to the Druidess's hut, where she should be able to finally get the supplies they came here for!

--------------------------------------------

[spoil]Ouch! Another death! ...or perhaps a suicide? Seems this swamp is dangerous! Kida, if you want to roll up a new character for the GAL, you're welcome to do so whenever you fancy.[/spoil]

Congratulations Gathers! Walks has made it through the main part of the dungeon! If you want to carry on and visit the druidess / healer, you can do that here.
@Quarg / Patdragon: If you guys particularly want to visit the druidess, you'll need to cross the pond as well.
@All: If you want to hang around and deal with any unfinished business in this particular dungeon (e.g. making a safe path for other GAL members) you are very welcome to do so.

Hah! Fair enough :) And the next quest in the GAL will be brought to you by Solomon, who desperately needs someone to help with an exorcism :P

William decides that since this dungeon has taken out two lives of his fellows he will first climb back up and assist Forges in getting back across or leaving...

Welcome to the statue club kida. Although I haven't seen a statue for you yet. Maybe TL was only planning on killing me and wasn't prepared to make you a statue?

Walks sighs at the comment of the ferryman. "Well, actually I fell into a pool of acid before, so no matter how mucky this water is, a chance to wash off the residues of that would still have been an improvement." She soothingly pats the shoulder of the sobbing one and offers him a comforting hug, if he wants it.
She decides to stick around and wait for William and Forges, if they plan on coming with her. Only if they have no intention in joining her, she'll move onto the druidess' place.


OOC: Did we get a way of PAYING for the stuff we're supposed to buy, too, or will the involved parties handle that, like with the beer quest?

ooc: Good thing drinks and Righteous weren't carrying the cash then....
Debating what to do here...got this far and kinda wanna see the druid, but i'm limited on trading options...
so lets see if i can convince them for a free trip across if not, might be worth joining forces William and see if we can take on the left over bugs and open the chest or go back to mushroom spore harvesting..

Forges heads right and calls to the ferrymen still a little sad but his resolve almost set on seeing who they came to see or at least gaining something other than some dead rats on this trip.

"Erm I know this might not be the best time to say this but... I did over hear you a while back saying this is the safest ferry in this swamp and you have a money back guaranty. Well we've already lost person to this crossing, so would you mind if the ring my friend gave you was good enough for a 2 for 1 deal to get me across as well. Plus I don't really have anything I can part with or that you would want unless I can actually give you some money, by the way if you trade in things do you have any things for sale or trade."

Turn 42

Image

William climbs back up to the top of the ladder, while Solomon remains seated, apparently stunned and drooling. Since he doesn't try to cross, [highlight=#000000]Forges[/highlight] tosses his end of the rope back to William and goes right to chat to the ferrymen.

Image

Walks returns to the dungeon and pats the sobbing ferryman on the shoulder while she waits for the others to appear.

"Well, actually I fell into a pool of acid before, so no matter how mucky this water is, a chance to wash off the residues of that would still have been an improvement."
"Well, we didn't know THAT either!"

[highlight=#000000]"Erm I know this might not be the best time to say this but... I did over hear you a while back saying this is the safest ferry in this swamp and you have a money back guaranty.

"It IS the safest ferry in this swamp! Your friend was... lost... while trying to swim, which was really nothing to do with our ferry... However, I am a businessman, and your friend did mention that you lot were from some Goblin Adventurer's League. If you agreed to send all your future business with the Healer past us at the normal price, I'm sure we could let you across today on a "2 for 1". Sound good?

So you've made a few comments along these lines in more than one of my games and I wanted to make something explicitly clear, for everyone's benefit:

I do not plan the deaths of any PC.

I set up rooms, assign stats & mechanics to the stuff inside and then leave you guys to deal with it however you want. There is no favouritism and I don't cheat to screw you over. I go out of my way to make sure these games are run fairly for everyone who plays. In fact, I'm actually more likely to lean the other way to avoid random deaths. However, I'm not going to pull my punches if you guys trigger something dangerous. If it leads to a PC death, well, that's just the dangers of being an adventurer, right?

Drink's "statue" didn't get made because my RL world is really busy at the moment and I didn't have time before. It is on its way to the HQ now.

William recovers the rope then empties his robe full of spores down on Soloman...."Here you go Sol old buddy old pal..." Hopefully you'll be insane enough to go down that damn passage...

William will then go back towards the mushroom room...

I apologize if I offended you, but: (but is always a horrible way to start an apology, but...)
1) Its just a joke.
2) It was more in reference to with my retreat being blocked it was obvious I was going to die several turns in advance, where as kida had an out. Not a reference to intention. Though I'll admit that probably was not clearly worded enough to reflect that.
3) Yeah, I'll admit the first couple comments were less of a joke, but I was initially a little pissed off when twice in a quest items didn't work as I thought was intended costing me two turns. Still a little sore about that, but this was not about that. (And while I may be sore I do agree that it was at least mostly fair)
4) This was "statue club" sounded like a good name for those of us who died, but then I can't call it that without somehow addressing the fact that I have one and he doesn't. Yeah I figured it was because of lack of time on your part, but I decided joking about that would sound more like "she has time for my important character but not yours" and be insulting to him.

So again sorry if you were offended, that was not my intention.

Turn 43

Image

"Here you go Sol old buddy old pal..."

William dumps his cloak full of spores onto Solomon, who visibly reels from the effects. He topples over onto the ground and twitches...

Image

Then, he heads back to the mushroom room. Finally, the spore cloud appears to have settled out. If they're going to clear a usable path through to the Healer from the GAL, someone is probably going to need to get rid of these things...

Image

[highlight=#000000]"Sounds good enough to me"[/highlight]

[highlight=#000000]Forges[/highlight] agrees to the ticket price and heads out to visit the Druidess with Walks.

William carefully navigates to the first mushroom without touching the other mushrooms again and collects any remaining sleeping spores storing them in the chest for later retrieval.

Forges keeps fluctuating between saddened and angry because of the deaths but ends up being a little excited when they enter the druids.

"Ah ha druid healer I presume. We've had a hell of a time getting here, lets hope you can help us. We have a goblin who was extremely injured and is just not healing right, our magical token was only just keeping him stable so we think something very serious is wrong, maybe it was the strange weapon that harmed him. Can you help us? We can't lose another goblin on this quest."

Walks walks into the hut after Forges, bows and says "Greetings, druidess." if the need arises, she describes the wounds and/or weapons (that caused the wounds) of the injured goblin to the best of her knowledge. If the healer still can't make heads or tails of that, she'll humbly ask if a house call would be possible.

Turn 44

Image

William VERY carefully creeps past the mushrooms and VERY carefully harvests some of the sleep-inducing spores from the left-hand one. He starts to feel a little light-headed, but manages to hold it together.

Image

"Greetings, druidess."
[highlight=#000000]"Ah ha druid healer I presume. We've had a hell of a time getting here, lets hope you can help us.

The druidess blinks in surprise at having two unexpected visitors and doesn't say anything for a really long time.

"Right. Yes. Well. Um... Right. If you don't know the poison, then the best I can do is a general restorative. It should work fine unless it's something really unusual, but I don't suppose it's likely that your patient has come into contact with Celatran sand spiders lately and that's really the only thing that might be contraindicative to this particular remedy. The patient HASN'T come into contact with Celatran sand spiders has he? No of course he hasn't. That would be ridiculous. Very low probability. Mind and check though. Right. Here you go then. That'll be 10 GP. Oh, and if he HAS contacted Celatran sand spiders I would be very interested in an ecological report. Not that it is likely. Not at all. Still, it would be very interesting."

The druidess turns away from the goblins and starts leafing through one of her many, many books.

William realizes that he needs the damn rope that he left back there at Soloman's hole and goes very very carefully back there to collect the rope...

Forges wonders briefly to himself who the little guy ran to to get help if not the druid as her reaction was not for expecting anyone, maybe she has a short memory.

"umm Thank you mam....one other thing, while we're here do you have anything that removes curses. I was cursed with this wooden ear and i have two friends that were cursed to turn into some form of badger if they drink mud-honey and we met this guy in the tunnel who seems only to be able to speak lies. None of these are very serious mind, I mean we can all live full lives if we don't find a curse remover, but I thought i'd ask anyway. Plus do you sell any other things we have an adventuring guild near by that might be interested in doing business from time to time "

ooc: the barman gave us 16gp i think so that leaves 6 to split between the surviving three.

So: I am heading off to a teeny Scottish island tomorrow to teach on a fieldwork course. I am hoping that I'll be able to get an update done tomorrow morning for you, because you guys are basically finished here and it would be good to let you head back to the GAL HQ in the meantime if you want to.

Anyway, for the next 2 weeks it's likely that I'm going to have fairly sporadic access to the internet. I'll update if and when I can, but I don't know how much work I'm going to need to do in the evenings yet. If it's a relaxed group of students it should be fine; if they're stressy and want tons of help... maybe not so much. We shall see what happens!

Turn 45

William VERY carefully creeps back past the mushrooms again and goes and retrieves his rope. Solomon looks like he's out for the count.

"Hmmmm? Oh? That's interesting."

The druidess leans in and prods [highlight=#000000]Forges's[/highlight] ear.

"Looks like a fairly standard transmogrification curse to me. Unfortunately, it's not within my realms of expertise to fix. I could chop it off and patch you up good as new if you like, but'll you need to find a cleric for curse removals if you want it reversed. Same for the mud-honey thing I imagine. I don't suppose you would be able to bring me a sample by any chance? I've often heard of mudhoney's strange properties but never managed to get my hands on any.

... Was there anything else?"
