    5E The Lichway - IC Thread

    OOC: I'm pretty sure you should be able to see through your own illusions. Ethian opens the door. The banging noises are clearer now - sounds pretty much like somebody trying to batter down a door (a noise all adventurers are familiar with). "Open up ya little ****," you hear a man say...

    5E The Lichway - IC Thread

    Mistral sends his glowing pebble through the ajar doors to get a better view of the room beyond. It has a marble floor inlaid with a strange design, plain but smooth walls and a high ceiling at the edge of the light's range. The double doors to either side are unremarkable, both are closed. The...

    5E The Lichway - IC Thread

    Rurik has, indeed, managed to find something alcoholic. At least, the liquid in the flask smells like strong liquor of some kind, with a slightly fishy overtone. The gourd contains what appears to be fine white sand. Javier looks through the gap in the "water portal". By the light of Mistral's...

    Dnd/Pathfinder Dr. Si's Curse of the Crimson Throne - Escape From Old Korvosa

    These are the four configurations. The rectangular corridor in 3 and 4 is the same, the one with the tiger heads. The angular corridor in 1 and 2 is the same, the one with the disturbing murals, but it flips ends between the two. In configuration 1 you haven't been past the door beyond the...

    OOC Thread Rogues Gallery The steep-sided walls of the Korm Basin slide by; Blackpearl's skiff has travelled the many miles from the opening to the sea, past rocky cliffs and scree of dark stone, the only sign of life some scrubby plants clinging to the side and birds wheeling overhead. Now...

    Dnd/Pathfinder Dr. Si's Curse of the Crimson Throne - Escape From Old Korvosa

    Mhairi pulls the lever, and nothing happens. "Wait a bit," says Vencarlo, and so you do. After about a minute there is a tiny "click" from the lever, and Vencarlo gives Mhairi a nod. She pulls it again. Somewhere a bell rings, there is the now familiar sound of distant mechanics mocing and the...

    5E [5e] The Lichway - Old School Dungeon with new school rules.

    This is combining two things I want to have a go at playing. The 5th Edition rules, and an adventure from White Dwarf issue 9 (from 1978) called The Lichway, by Albie Fiore. If you read my WD reviews from a couple of years back, you'll have seen me raving about this adventure, which is a neat...

    5E conversions for player races from Monte Cooke's Arcana Evolved/Unearthed

    In this thread I'm going to attempt to convert the Arcana Unearthed/Evolved races to D&D 5th Ed., mainly as an exercise for me to get used to the system. I'm not going to attempt the Evolved levels, at least not yet, but otherwise will be using the AE versions of the playable races rather than...

    Dnd/Pathfinder Dr. Si's Curse of the Crimson Throne - Escape From Old Korvosa

    There is a sensation of movement again, and the corridor of freaky murals vanishes in a blur. Moments later, as the movement shudders to a stop, it is back, but this time it points in the opposite direction. I can't do layers at the moment, but hopefully you get the idea.

    "There were four guards who took me prisoner, but they caught me by surprise," says Vencarlo. "Time was that wouldn't have happened but..." he shrugs. "All I know of his sister is her name, Melya. I've never had the pleasure." Attaching the last map that shows the current dungeon configuration.

    Dnd/Pathfinder Dr. Si's Curse of the Crimson Throne - Escape From Old Korvosa

    With no evident way to wake the sleepers, the only option seems to wait. The dungeon shifts three more times during this period, returning the configuration to how it was before Mhairi and Ignatius triggered the symbol. Finally they awake, with no other ill effects. Fortunately, the effects of...

    Dnd/Pathfinder Dr. Si's Curse of the Crimson Throne - Escape From Old Korvosa

    Edmond and Manachan leave the room with the chests to check on their missing comrades, to find them slumped asleep, but unharmed, around the corner. Suddenly a bell rings and the room lurches again. Manachan just manages to roll forwards into the room to avoid being sliced in two by moving walls...

    Dnd/Pathfinder Dr. Si's Curse of the Crimson Throne - Escape From Old Korvosa

    Nothing happens when Edmond waves his guisarme in front of the gem, And nothing further when he touches it. Whatever it is, surprisingly perhaps it doesn't appear to be trap. Or at least not one that acts immediately... Meanwhile, down the corridor, Mhairi and Ignatius skirt the suspicious...

    Dnd/Pathfinder Dr. Si's Curse of the Crimson Throne - Escape From Old Korvosa

    OOC: Can I just check which symbols are being referred to here? I think Edmond is going to poke the tigers encircling a gem thing in the room with the chests. Is Ignatius using detect magic on the other symbol, down the corridor with the murals (top left of the map)? Or the same?

    Dnd/Pathfinder Dr. Si's Curse of the Crimson Throne - Escape From Old Korvosa

    Ignatius opens the door onto a small room with three chests lined up against one wall. Each chest is carved with the tiger motif that is becoming predicatable, and has some writing on the top in the elaborately curled Vudran script. On the wall opposite the chests the entire wall is carved with...

    Dnd/Pathfinder Dr. Si's Curse of the Crimson Throne - Escape From Old Korvosa

    Ignatius opens the door. Beyond is another room, empty apart from a further door leading off to the far right, and a symbol etched into middle of the floor. A wide passage leads away to the left, curving back to its left at the end. The walls of this passage are decorated with murals of giant...

    Edmond pulls the lever. Somewhere far off a bell rings, then suddenly the whole room lurches. Where the archway through to the tiger-headed statues was becomes a blur of stone, before the room lurches again and a new doorway slides into place. This one leads into a small stone room with a door...
