Until this morning I have received no updates to the threads for this game since I posted on Oct 20. I don't know why, but it means I have been MIA while you are playing. I'm sorry.
First -- if I seem not to be about, please send a ping my way. I do check the site daily.
Second -- the immediate situation. I've not read the spoilers in the IC thread, and I don't understand what's fully happening, but Albrecht has a way to operate the trigger on the griffon and get everyone through, if he is prompted.
oh dear. Sorry about that.
Basically, the party discovered that the Griffon statue did, in fact open a secret / Concealed door revelaing a short passage. Umbril went through and found that, while the door on the side of the house that you've been exploring was open, the one at the far side of the passage was closed and vice-versa. Umbril went through the passage and had a brief encounter, then found the lever to operate the secret / concealed door from the other side.
That is where we are now. AFAIK Albrecht and Bimpnott are on the explored side, Terry and Umbril are on the other side manning the other lever.
Thanks for explaining; I like that it doesn't require someone to stay behind. And yes, I admit, I added to the confusion myself by having Bimpnott use the lever several times in a row. Sorry about that.
I will be going over characters to rebuild them in a new-to-me management tool. Hopefully this will make things easier on me and work better. @jmucchiello I feel like terrys HP are low. At 4d8+12, they should be around 32-35 but you have listed as 20. Please check, Thx. Wis 20 (+5) and proficient (+2) in perception gives a +7 to passive but you have +8 listed. Is there a feat or feature I'm missing?
