As far as loot division goes, anyone mind if I call dibs on the rope?

Turn 36

Image

"alright now then lets all get together and launch and acid attack on those two skeletons!!!! Everyone grab a corner, we will open the top and then on three throw it!"
"Hey, gnomes? We're going to throw this acid at the skeletons. There may be some runoff. You'll probably want to go inside for a little while. And maybe, if you can, close the door. Just to be on the safe side."

"Oh gods they're at it again!"
"It's fine. They'll leave soon. They have to, there's nothing left here to destroy!"
"Except... well, except us!"
"...Oh."
"Yeah..."
"We should go inside now."

William and Mines unwrap the chest (Mines takes the rope) and heave it over on its side, spilling the acid all over the skeletons in a tidal wave of corrosive, burning fluid. It sloshes off the back wall and washes the skeletons are away and into the pool below! Unfortunately, some splash-back hurts Mines doing 2 DAM to him! William manages to withstand it though and gets away unscathed, which is considerably more than can be said for the ladder which falls off its rusty mountings and collapses below. The chest falls down the gap as well.

All in all, quite a lot of destruction is achieved.

While that's all going on, Walks takes the Belt of Fisticuffs from Odd and puts it on. It's not very subtle.

Oops.

Well, that was fun. Of a sort.

Yeah, let's see what's in the chest that the skeletons were guarding, take it, and go. I suppose we could retrieve one of the big chests with the rope (someone would have to climb down), but I'm not sure it's worth it.

William laughs..."I hadn't realized we were going to just wash them away...."

"Who is going to go help me pick up some beer?"

William will go up to the beer to get it...

Yeah.....about that.....

The beer takes two people to carry. And my epic sign takes two hands. So.....

Is there any way we can put the sign on top of the beer and carry both at the same time?

There are four of us. Two carry the beer. One carries the sign. One carries the chest.

Am I right in guessing that you guys are basically done then? If so, just stick an "XX leaves the dungeon" or whatever in the end of your post after whatever final actions you want to take and I'll finish this one up over the weekend :)

Erm, no I don't mind if Mines gets the rope. It was your idea after all to get it, Wears.

I would like to:
*) loot the chest & content the skeletons were guarding. (I don't care who does it, we still need to distribute the loot, anyways.)
*) take as many indestructible chests with us as we can, additionally to the beer and the sign. (team effort)
*) give back the spear and try to ask the Troll chief to go easy on Rork, because without the spear, we couldn't have achieved what we have done. (That the spear was needed to free a gome and not to kill the spider is a little detail he doesn't need to know. ;) ) (Walks would be happy to do that, she borrowed the spear, after all.)
*) take Ralf with us, help him get up the ladder etc. wherever he NEEDS and WANTS help. (Walks would be happy to do that.)
*) apologize to the gnomes that remain here that we ruined the ladder. Offer help, if they want/need it. (Walks would be happy to do that, even if it wasn't her idea. Decency.)
*) light the torch for the way home. (Yay, light bearer. Not olympic, but still. :lol: )

After all that, I'm more than fine to go back to the GAL HQ. If you can/want to wrap that all up in 'one turn', that's fine by me.

Also, TL, you're a master artist. :thumbsup: I'm almost feeling bad for the skeletons looking all astonished and *poor* now that the acid gets them. And thanks for educating me before. =)

Works for me.

I'll tie the rope to the nearest wall sconce, drop the other end off the side, and, if it's clear of acid, climb down.

Re. Chests:
At the moment, you've pretty much got everything big you can carry (beer = 2 people; sign = 1 person; small chest = 1 person). If you want to take a big chest back it'll require two of you to carry each one. However, they are just bog-standard chests that appear everywhere in this realm and I am CERTAIN that Savage has a bunch of them in the GAL for you to use for storage :)

yes but are his nigh-indestructible and still covered with that musty dangerous-dungeon odor? I think not! :P


On a serious note: I wish I could help carry something. I just dont see how I can possibly leave the sign behind. It will be such an awesome decoration for the front of the Inn.

Well, okay. Leave the big chests, then. :shrug: Or not. Would you guys please make up your minds? :lol:


If no one else loots the small chest, Walks will have a look in there and take everything (not harmful to her) into her inventory.
If someone else does the looting of the small formerly guarded by skeletons chest, (or after doing that herself) Walks will tell the gnomes behind the door that they are safe from the acid now (as soon as this is true!) and apologize for wrecking the ladder and any other inconvenience we might have caused. Offer to attach a rope (they will have to provide, though) at the upper level until they can replace the ladder.
If she still can do something, move up and to the Troll Chief. Greet respectfully.

Okay, so if I'm reading things right, I can forget tying the rope and climbing down? And we've got enough people to loot the chest and take it. And I don't know if we're even capable of repairing the ladder. But hey, we killed the spider for them and left them with a pile of indestructible chests. And fixed their standoff with the trolls. I'd say they're better off, all things considered. Worth the price of a ladder, wouldn't you say?

So we can drop off the spear, put in a good word for Rork (though the chief already said he'd let Rork off if we brought the spear back), grab the loot, and get out of here.

OK, I think I get the gist of what you guys want to do :) I'll write you guys a last turn / epilogue tonight or tomorrow. If any of you are keen to sign up to Badge's quest, feel free to do that any time. I have another quest ready to go, but I'll give myself a week off I think before I open it up to sign-ups :lol:

Oh, and so you can divvy your loot, you find an Amulet of Healing inside the little box. It will heal any character 1HP, but can only be used once per turn.

EDIT: Once the epilogue's up, I'm happy to open the floor to quest-related questions :)

It's up to you guys really - I prefer not to have anything to do with the selection process :)

Of course, there's always the risk of becoming The Official Healer and having to spend the rest of your adventuring life following everyone else around and patching them up while they do all the [s]stupid[/s] [s]reckless[/s] cool stuff...

well since I will be at the front of battle doing stupid stuff, I think it will come in handy.

Well we each get 10 gold....yeah...

Then we have one bow with four arrows (Lost one to the acid)
Chainmail shirt
High-quality animal pelts (x2): These look valuable.
Silver Cloak Pin: Forged in the shape of a wolf's head
Three pointy sticks
One amulet of Healing (Now I'm really glad we spent the time)
One Belt of Fistcuffs
Leather Armor
Vial of poison

So we have five offensive weapons
We have two means of increasing Def
We have one means of healing...
And we have supplies that were only sort of worth the trouble...(maybe we can buy something)
And one temporary attack bonus
Really...why are you reading this?

Well I would like the leather armor since I almost died getting it.

I would like get something else since I lost health (after the potion that healed me) on weakening the skeletons and the spider. My first choice would be the amulet of healing since I know I will get into trouble in future quests. My second choice would be the wolf head pin.

I would say the belt goes to gathers because of her using her healing potion to keep me alive.

Beyond that I would say everyone should get some kind of item or extra share of treasure for the effort they put forth on this. Quarq, will you take the lead and come up with a fair way of splitting stuff cuz someone needs to make a decision for the rest of the group to follow.
