Pressi (Melvin) - AC 20, HP 72/72, CMD 20; Harper -AC 21, HP 61, CMD 23 
Sunday September 17th, 2017 11:10:34 PM

First things first, Pressi mentions that she'd like to get the group in message spell range before they even consider a flyby.

If that's the plan, she prepares to use beast shape 1 as they get closer, to form that of a small bird. She plans though to stay out of lines of sight as much as possible, remaining stealthy.

Lance will likewise approach on foot, then cast fly as they get closer. He moves along at the same elevation as Pressi and Murphy, but keeps some distance to increase visual coverage.

Hobie thinks the flyby is a good idea, but first he would like to sneak himself into a position where he can view the house, within his bow's range, in case something were to go wrong.

Having cast his Barkskin, Bliss sneaks all fast and catlike toward the fungus-house, rolling his Stealth at -5 to use his full move of 50. As a tiny housecat, he slinks through the underbrush, using nearby foliage as concealment. He looks around for animated mushroom-men or brachiating bracket-fungi.

[OOC: Bliss is not scouting much ahead. Within Message range, like Pressi says. Bliss pays especially careful attention to all her suggestions, actually.]

Knocking on the Door


DM Ken 
Monday September 18th, 2017 10:43:37 PM


In various forms and transmutations, the strange scouting party gathers their healing wands and sets forth. A cat stalks through the bushes, a bird flies overhead, flapping tiny wings. Murphy flies in whatever form Murphy has chosen to fly in.

A few others, Kezzem and Lance and Hobie, are stuck hoofing it.

It takes 40 minutes by foot to arrive, and you DM assumes those of you with timed spells will wait to activate them. Those using minute per level spells, we will assume we have used 2 minutes of duration. You also wait, per Pressi's request, until everyone is within range of the Message spell.

Path to the communal living area is long and winding, overgrown with brush and the signs of disuse. There are no scouts detected thus far, but you are about 300 ft away from the community house. It is visible, standing fairly tall above the unkept high grass and sparse trees.

Kezzem detect no evil, but the range is certainly a factor.

Murphy, Lance, and Pressi - flying above, notice a few things.

1. The building is a 3 story building. Each floor seems to have either 4 really large rooms, or perhaps 8 smaller rooms, judging from the number of windows.

2. The doors, both front and back, are boarded up. The windows are all boarded up as well. It looks, outwardly, as if no one has been living here for some time.

ooc: Is it a sloped roof or flat roof? Any trapdoors or a belfry?

Lance swoops over to the third-floor, northern exposure window and tries to peek between the boards.

Tuesday September 19th, 2017 5:53:13 AM


Thanking Pirnook for his help at the General Store, Murphy heads out. He steps around a corner, looking for a place to transform out of sight of others. Just before he does so, he places the two wands on the ground, so they do not transform with him. He changes into an air elemental of medium size (normal flight speed 65'), picks up the two wands, and flies in pursuit of his friends.

Catching up not too long before they arrive before the old communal dwelling, he gives one of the wands to Kezzem, and tells him, Pressi, and Bliss the command word for the paladin's wand of cure light wounds ('kestral'), as well as the word for the wand he has ('ptarmigan').

He makes sure to be included in the message spell.

Murphy flies to about 40 feet above the building, and looks at roof and windows to see if there is a gap which might allow entry.

Tuesday September 19th, 2017 9:13:34 AM

(OOC I accidentally posted this first as a Private message to DMs, so I'm reposting here. My rolls can be seen on the first post)

"I'm gonna look for a way in." Hobie activates his ring of invisibility approaches the house careful to watch for traps as he goes, particularly for the fungus he saw before (Perception 19).

When he gets to the house he will check carefully for any of the boarded doors or windows that might provide an opening into the house. (If I can take 20 in this situation I will, for 32, otherwise my roll was 24)

The whole time Hobie is careful to move as quietly as possible (though at full speed because of the rogue talent) for a stealth of 52

As Pressi flies forward, she shakes her head at the air elemental. She long ago decided that she couldn't tell him not to scout, and at least he wasn't scouting alone, but she figured that she could give him some tips along the way. As someone with some experience and talent for scouting even before the magic. Over the roar of the wind, she speaks somewhat of how she decides whether and when to scout, about how she chooses to scout, about how she always maintains an escape path, and will continue to rely on skills before magic.

As for Bliss, she doesn't see much need to direct him. He seems like he'd basically do on his own what she'd asks anyway.

With Lance and Murphy checking windows, and Hobie checking the door, she isn't entirely sure what to check next. She does allow herself hope that they beat whatever is travelling here.

She casts Detect Magic on the building, scanning for energies on the doors and windows, and she keeps a scan on the perimeter to see if anyone else has approached the building (Perception 27, survival 6).

Bliss bounces up to Harper and says, "Meow," by which he means, "Come on! Follow me!"

Then Bliss sneaks up with Hobie, sticking close to the stealthy -- um -- rogue? Whatever he is?

Stealth 35.

Bliss tries to listen hard and keep his eyes open.

Kezzem will cast shield other on Pressi.

He will maintain detect evil as he enters as well as looking around with his own eyes.

Lance flies up and tries peering between the boards. He finds a gap here or there, but the windows are grimy from no cleaning and he can't see in. There are no lights coming from the room. The roof is flat on the top, with slanted sides...

Rooftop

Murphy flies up close with Lance, and looks for an opening to fit through as an air elemental. Even thought he building looks like it is in disuse, no holes or cracks are apparent.

Hobie goes invisible before heading up on the porch to examine the front door. Up close, he can see the wood was put up quickly and could be pried off, but how quietly. He sees no signs of the mold.

Pressi is a little peeved that Murphy once again ran off to scout. She doesn't know what to do herself, so instead of checking doors or windows, instead casts detect magic. No auaras radiate to her. She also doesn't see anyone approaching.

CatBliss heads up with Hobie, also being as quiet as possible. He also doesn't spot anything out of the ordinary outside of the boarded up doors and windows.

Kezzem casts shield on Pressi and then heads up to the front door with the others. He continues to check for evil, but so far nothing radiates to him.

The porch creaks, but other then that no noises are heard. The door is not trapped. Is someone prying the doors open, trying a window?

Wednesday September 20th, 2017 10:39:41 AM

Pressi remembered what Hobie said about the guy wanting to use fungus.

Is that what we face now, Garron? she asked herself. Just following your breadcrumbs, walking into shmuck bait after shmuck bait? You might have gotten the old Pressi with this, the one who wouldn't do what you do.

She casts detect poison along the doors and windows, sending the message along of what she is doing.

Hobie will turn to those gathered at the door

"Well, guys, I think I can pry the board off of this door and get us a way in to the house, but I'm worried about how much noise it might make. Tell me, do any of you magic users have a Silence spell prepared, or something similar?"

Bliss / CatBliss (HP80) (Cayzle)  d20+5=15 ;
Wednesday September 20th, 2017 9:40:12 PM


Bliss changes into a halfling and answers Hobie. "I got nothing for quiet, but I can help you open up this place. I'm strong."

If Hobie does not object, Bliss takes a grip and trues to pull the boards off a door and then to open a door.

Str check 15.

WEDNESDAY POST

"I can blast the doors." Lance hovers above the ground 20 feet away from the front door. "That might keep us out of arm's reach from anything."

DM Shawn - The Communal House - Room 1 Floor 1 
Thursday September 21st, 2017 12:32:20 AM

Pressi asks a question to Garron in her own head... but is only given silence. She casts detect poison on the windows and door, but gets nothing.

Hobie asks if anyone has a silence spell, but is only told by Bliss that he doesn't.

Lance offers to blow the doors off the hinges, as it might prevent any traps or attacks from harming them.

Bliss waits for any negative reply before pulling on one of the boards Kezzem helps him with the wood.

With a loud groan and a ripping sound, the first board pulls off... another rip and groan and another board. The third board snaps, and cracks.. but still comes off. Once the last board rips off the door swings freely on its own showing a large 40' by 35' room. The room is decorated as a living room of sorts, but a thin layer of dust coats the entire room. Small halfling footprints can be seen in the dust, but no creatures can be seen. Across the room, two seperare doors are open and reveal a hallway behind the room.

Murphy flies down to report what he has gathered - along with Pressi and Lance:

1. On each floor of the 3 story building there appear to be either 4 really large rooms, or perhaps 8 smaller rooms, judging from the number of windows.

2. The doors, both front and back, are boarded up. The windows are all boarded up as well. It looks, outwardly, as if no one has been living here for some time.

3. Have not yet noted any holes or cracks.

"Good question, Hobie. Anyone?" Whether Bliss, or Pressi, or Lance can cast silence, he waits to hear.

Hobie will step forward into the house, and look around at the room, checking around all of the furniture for anything that might look unusual, especially for anything that might not be covered in dust. (Perception 27)

(ooc: does Hobie notice how recent the footsteps might look?)

In answer to the question, no witch has silence. (The closest is something like ghost sound. Maybe her fey invisibility by round.)

As Harper follows the crowd in search of furniture to chew on, Pressi chooses to instead land on the roof, casting see invisibility.

Hobie heads in first, some of the others waiting to see if he gets ripped apart. five feet in, it happens. Hobies foot presses down.. and an audible creak rips through the house.. but nothing else happens.

Hobie can tell the foot prints are more than a day old, but not much more then that.

Pressi heads back up to the roof, and casts Detect Invisibility. nothing out of the ordinary up there.

Cat Bliss follows Hobie, while Lance waits.

Murphy heads in and checks out the footprints as well. he gets the idea that they are also halfling, and they are about a day old.

A shuffling sound can be heard above.

What is the quality and integrity of the interior building so far?

Pressi thinks about blinking into the building to spy on whatever is in there. But she just yelled at Murphy not to do that.

Instead, she flies to rejoin the group, shifting back into a human when she arrives.

She scans the first floor with her see invisibility.

Hobie cringes grotesquely as he causes the floorboard to creak, and quietly curses himself under his breath.

At the sound of the meow, he reactivates his ring of invisibility, and follows Catbliss, this time he is careful to step lightly and make as little noise as possible.

As he walks he checks diligently for traps, and also looks out for anything out of the ordinary that he might come across
