Game Update #183 in sequence (file #1260)
Admin Notes: None.
From Fremea: [Re: Actions]
<OCC - apologize for being quiet of late, been very busy this last
month and a half>
Fremea doesn't care what group she is in. She wants to figure out
the best places to fly to make sure she can use her dead rain of
arrows to destroy the fastest, yet with as much surprise on her
side as she can muster. "Since these things can sense magic...
GM: Ack. We've all been busy and distracted. So I know the feeling.
From Arawn: [Re: Actions]
As groups are formed Arawn makes a few comments.
"So what are the locations each group is heading towards?...
From Will: [Re: Actions]
The groups and the plan look good to Will and he is available to
teleport (if needed) his group to attack which ever target is
[Augado 10th, 1634TH]
[Location: Middle Katai Plains]
[ Mountains west of Pamau]
[Time: 1:21 pm]
Farseeker seems to take a more active role and assigns groups
with the agreement of those around him. Soon three groups are
quickly formed making it a small group for each.
Fremea doesn't care what group she is in. She wants to figure
out the best places to fly to make sure she can use her dead rain
of arrows to destroy the fastest, yet with as much surprise on her
side as she can muster. "Since these things can sense magic with
those strange creatures, I am not so sure adding extra to me will
help right now. First thing though is to let me scout a bit more.
I did not see anything flying around in here, so I should be
fine." Taking a look out at the massive cave. "One thing I can do
after that is to sneak fly over to key areas and use concealing
fog to make it very hard from them to see anything and pick them
off. It will seem like a fog for them has descended as I fly it
down on them and pick at them. Only thing is that others will not
be able to see in to help at this."
"The mist is good as long as they don't have something to
count it." Caladan nods and scans the pit below.
"It will help to get the scouting done. Those dog-things could
detect you. If so we'll have to move fast. Its a shame we can't
pinpoint their range. Just don't have time. Avoid them if you can.
We need to ensure the Shapers do not have those Orbs so they
can't warn the others. That will be top priority. After that
positions of the humans and other stuff we should avoid."
Fremea nods and begins to cast her invisibility spell. Captain
Lin stares as she unfurls her wings and murmurs to herself. The
Captain looks a bit pale as if he is not in the thick of things
helping heretics. But the enemy is too great to deal without
Fremea figures she will have only two minutes to scan while her
spell is active. She estimates in that two minutes she could
fly a bit over two miles. Fremea casts her spell and walks to the
edge of the cave entrance lip.
"Good luck." Farseeker urges the invisible Faerry.
Faerry leaps outward and climbs high as much to the ceiling as
she can. She turns right and heads toward the Shaper in the
east. The Shaper (U34) is dressed in the long skin like leather
clothing the females seem to wear. She is staring north into
the deep and enjoying the site below. Fremea tries to look for
lumps and areas but there is no obvious sign of a Orb among
her body. there appears to be a small bump where a Coufee might
be inside her gown.
The next target is the alcove above the ground to the east (T47).
A small rope-leather ladder is seen below which allows one to
climb into the alcove. As Fremea hovers closer she peers inside
about 30 feet away. Inside the alcove its about 5 feet tall and
20 feet deep. There are two Vong warriors. One is sitting
against a wall stroking a coufee with some tool as if to sharpen
in it. There is another Vong warrior sitting on the ground with
crossed legs staring out toward the pit area. In his lap there is
a tube object of some kind. Along beside him a leather skin bag
of some kind is hiding something. They both have amphistaves
and coufees it seems nearby. She can only guess these are some
kind of archers since they are in perches.
Fremea flies north toward the next Shaper (I42). She spends
a few long seconds to scan her body. But she is just like the
other Shaper and no Orb is seen. She is berating some poor
human male in his 20s. Fremea can't understand the language
but she can understand the gesture and emotion and it doesn't
sound like the human is doing a good job with an award in mind.
Fremea spots the cave entrance and the guards north of her current
position. She notices the dog-creature licking one of its many
legs. She decides to stay clear of the beast and flies north by
north west toward the top of the cave by using the pit side itself.
She watches the creature to see if it senses her. But she stays
within at least 40 or more feet with no detection it seems. She
heads past some of the other Vong warriors and heads westward.
Fremea spends time to inspect the Shaper near a couple of what
seems to be Outcasts. She is speaking to them but it isn't
known what exactly. The Shaper (F20) also seems like the other
two with no obvious Orb.
By now she can figure half her spell duration is out as she
tries to inspect the Vong. So far she hasn't detected hidden
alcoves or escape routes except the entrance to the north east
so far. But her time is running out so she moves westward.
She flies past one Vong Warrior and inspects the recess area
in the north west (Area B). she is saddened to find a clump
of humans either sitting, lying or worse some are in the Embrace
of Pain devices. there must be 2 or 3 dozen of them mostly mature
adults. Lucky the recess seems to be a dead area with only the
one Vong detected so far. But she can't go and inspect the
area in great detail is time is short. But she knows where
the bulk of humans are kept.
While Fremea flies around the cave, Arawn listens to the groups
As groups are formed Arawn makes a few comments. "So what are
the locations each group is heading towards? Also, as the Shapers
need to be dealt with, will we send in assassins again or teleport
in? If the latter, I can take up to 4 with me, leaving someone
behind unless an archer chooses to remain up here."
Arawn also offers his own group the following, "Just before we
strike I can bond us in a Battle Mind. If anyone wishes this let
me know and I can cast just before striking."
Fremea heads toward the next area (Area A) to find a clump of
more humans in various positions. The problem is the second
dog creature seems to be guarding that area. That prevents
her from getting close and looking further. Not wanting to
be detected. She has to peer from various angles beyond the
pit edge looking in that area. She seems to notice small
room like caves near the humans that might contain more prisoners
but it is not sure at this point.
Fremea heads toward the next Shaper (N6). but this one she
notices immediately has a Orb in its closed-shut down mode
on her left shoulder. She notices there is no face on it so
it is not active it seems. The Shaper is turned toward three
humans and talking to them.
Fearing her spell will end soon she flies south and looks
inside the second perch alcove. Peering fast she finds two
Vong as in the exact position and style of weapons as in the
first perch alcove on the east (R3).
Flying as fast as she can toward the party's cave she dives
inside the cave and lands. Two seconds later she becomes
Fremea has done well but she realizes she didn't have time
to fly over the pit itself or figure out those flying things
high above the pit at the top ceiling. Just not enough time
for a first recon she figures.
Fremea relays her quick report to the others.
[Time: 1:24 pm]
"Very well, then we have three areas to go to. The main
entrance. the prisoner areas and we have to get that Shaper
with the Orb killed right away." Farseeker looks out and
figures some options.
"I think my group will go for the entrance and kill the dog
beast and the warriors to ensure it remains blocked. Strie'bog
can teleport us there." Farseeker suggests to the party.
Strie'bog nods and agrees to this.
"Fremea can you take your group to take out that Shaper then
move on from there? I think Raban and you can deal with that
orb right away." Farseeker suggests to the Sidh. "I'm not
sure how many you can take but maybe Will can help to teleport
one or two?"
"Arawn I thought it might be good to be with us. But I think
you would prefer to be with the human prisoners to help them.
So head there." He points toward the second dog creature (H9)
"Take it out then divide up to free as many prisonrs or at
least ensure no Vong will kill them outright."
Farseeker turns back to the group. "then we can clean up
and finish the others. It seems there is no other way out
at this point." He looks to Unali for direction then the
others. "Any suggestions or changes to this plan?"
GM: Minor mistake in the group info last update. Glad it was
ignored. Final groups from the corrected material is below.
GM: Group 1 - Farseeker, Strie'bog, Unali, Ben'dar
Group 2 - Chion, Kell, Z'leyra, Lin, Caladan, Arawn
Group 3 - Fremea, Kiet, Will, Zhou, Raban
GM: Tried to email Chris (Ben'dar) to see if did well during the
London riots but no reply which is odd for him. Also tried
to check on John (Raban) to see how his health has been
but also no reply. If anyone hears from them let me know.
GM: If there is changes or suggestions to Farseeker's plan let
me know. There has been plenty of time to work on these
plans. So figure it is almost to move on. Once the
combat starts it will be lots of work but should go fast
once in the groove. Oh! Fremea you wanted the Mist. I think
he forgot that. If Kiet or Raban could take the shaper
out and the orb you could still do that? If folks do not
wish to do teleporting let me know (Arawn, Will, Fremea).
If so which ELs do you offer so it can be done. If questions
let me know. We'll see if the combat starts thursday or
not if there isn't time.
