downtime! doooowntiiiime! downtimedowntimedowntiiime!

After the revelry calms down, you can spend some time building up the dungeon, planning the next raid, or working on something devilish of your own divising. You can build traps, craft potions, work on rituals, or break a prisoner's spirit, ect. Here's how downtime works:

• Each Dungeon Lord takes one downtime action.

• You can pay Minions 1 gold to undertake a downtime action on their own. I don't think anyone has the 2 gold to do this, but good to keep in mind for the future.
• Certain Calling abilities grant additional Downtime actions.
• You can flashback to perform downtime actions that are immediately relevant to a scene, paying cost to represent the strenuous effort. We haven't spoken about this yet, but we'll cover it more next raid.


When you perform a downtime action, you make an action roll like SKULK, SMASH, BANTER, ect. Downtime actions have dominant position, unless there is an overwhelming circumstance towards position. You generally have enough time to safely work on a project. However, you can choose to Risk it and take a normal position to recklessly push yourself to accomplish something, risking bad consequences, but if you do so you must accept the result, warts and all.


Downtime actions:
-> B R E W a concoction or potion, making two doses.
Commonly used Actions: INVOKE • SCAN • TINKER


-> B U I L D a lock, room, trap or trick. The project tier equals the tier of what you're building.
Commonly used Actions: FINESSE • SCAN • SMASH • TINKER • TRICK


-> C O N T A C T a Vile Friend, Faction, or other NPC to gain information, ask for help, or make demands. The Project tier depends on how much you ask for.
Commonly used Actions: BANTER • THREATEN • TRICK


-->C R A F T an item, edge, or contraption. The project tier of a contraption is it's tier. A mundane item is a tier 1 project and adding an edge to an item is tier 2. Contraptions are always volatile.
Commonly used Actions: FINESS • SCAN • TINKER


-> I N C A N T a ritual, preparing it to be performed or finishing it off and performing it. You can achieve powerful magical effects or make magic items. Rituals have special requirements that must be fulfilled before they can be performed.
Commonly used Actions: FINESSE • INVOKE • SCAN


-> R E C R U I T a pack of minions or attract a creature without having to spend gold. This is always a tier 1 project. You can only do this if you have an open minion slot of creature lair.
Commonly used Actions: BANTER • THREATEN • SMASH • TRICK


-> T O R T U R E a prisoner to force them to reveal a single secret or break their spirit and make them do something for you. Getting information is always a tier 1 project and each prisoner knows a number of secrets equal to their tier. Torturing is risky buisness, often killing a prisoner or pushing them to do something extreme. Tis is an overwhelming circumstance towards position.
Commonly used Actions: BANTER • SKULK • THREATEN • TRICK

@Mae My downtime action:

C O N T A C T
Into The Darkness...



- Type Of Contact: Vile "Friend".
- Who Exactly: Vorath-Dakoth,

- Description/Background -
An Ancient Dracolich from Myre's Root. Was the last dungeons original master, before being subsequently defeated by the usurper that took the dungeon themselves. However the ancient black dragon had planned ahead if he died that he would be resurrected as a Dracolich. Zaz'ak owes the dragon his fealty and continued offering of sacrifices to fuel his phylactery, in exchange for his aid.

- What For: Zaz'ak wants the dragon to provide him resources for expanding his influence in exchange for sacrifices.

@Mae

Yes I am keeping the bloodstone

-> B U I L D a lock, room, trap or trick. The project tier equals the tier of what you're building.

I'd like to make a pit trap at a dead end in Maze,triggered when someone touches the wall, the floor drops out, they fall inside 10'x10' room, and the trap floor/door springs back up locking in place.

@Dark Cloud ok so what skill are you using and what resources do you want to acquire?
@Kenshi so you can build tier 1, 2 or 3. Tier 1 traps you can accomplish with 1 roll, Tier 2 will require 0/4 actions (easy for groups) and tier 3 trap will require 0/8 actions to complete.

tier 1 trap is somewhat easy to avoid. Tier 2 traps are deadly. Tier 3 traps are the deadliest, likely to affect multiple adventurers.

@Mae I want to TRICK, some kobolds in Myre's Root into following me to the Dragon's lair to be sacrificed. In return I want to gain notoriety in Myre's Root.

@Dark Cloud perfect! You have a dominant position average effect. You can roll to TRICK now, if you succeed you gain notoriety in Myre's Root. Vorath-Dakoth could grant you units to help in a future raid, or resources you might require, for now we'll say he owes you a favor. You can use this to tick a project clock too, for example, he could give you resources for the Mining Shaft if you wanted.

Roll it up :D

@Kenshi Sounds good.

@Mae can Krieg torture the dark elf prisoner?


Maybe we should let @POOHEAD189 or @VeyrinDay to torture them? But I'd be interested to see Krieg's torture methods.

@Dark Cloud So you could do any of these things, the last two are mutually exclusive but you could use your dark heart for either one:
-spend a Dark Heart to gain +1d.
-Risk it: lose your Dominant Position to gain strong effect.
-or if you keep the dominant position, if you fail, you can instead decide to Risk It taking an average position average effect, giving you two chances.

you can't spend a dark heart to gain effect though :c

@Kenshi sure, you're all monsters after all. It may be an idea to discuss this sort of thing with other players OOC generally speaking, but I'm sure Krieg will return her in one piece... right...?

What skill would you like to use?

@Dark Cloud yep! But you only need to Risk It if you fail. You could either spend your +1d on the first attempt or the second
