And back I am. Exhausted, certainly, and may need a while for that to wear off, but I'm once more here to read and even write!

Should have been writing posts. Took part in D&D shenaniganry instead. Got to fix that tomorrow.

There's a lot of backlog here on my end. I'm trying my best to lessen it, but replies might be less frequent for a time. A welcome change from the nothing doing I went through though! Thanks partners!


I suppose it is about time for me to copypaste fill in some information about myself over here just as well. Only took me a few years to getting around to do it.

I am a married man in my early twenties from the country some people dare claim does not exist. The Finland conspiracy is an old joke, you can stop with it now. Not a native speaker of the language by any means, though I did begin studying it exceptionally early for our country's standards. I suppose it was some sort of a test case. With that out of the way though, what more should I be saying here...
  • I like being nice to people. If one needs to ask why, well that alone is reason enough.
  • I play and Dungeon Master Dungeons and Dragons, both offline and over here.
  • I sleep like a vampire, so my hours of activity might not be exactly what is expected from CEST (GMT +3). If I could fathom a guess, I'd say I'm most active between 22-4 local time.
  • I enjoy OOC chatter, be it planning the RP or a more casual exchange (not that RP'ing is that serious). I can make do without, but don't be afraid to talk to me.
  • Whatever the case, I'm here to have fun and hone my writing abilities!
I do think that should about cover it, yes.

Thanks for stopping by I suppose! I do also have a Discord account, but I prefer to start anything RP related on the site. At least with people I don't know from the past, that is! But hey, now if you are a longer time contact of mine and happened to read this, now you know and can ask!

@Norschtalen - Not the same kobold as last round (given they shuffled around a bit) fails the save with a 9 and proceeds to kick the bucket. Three left.

@Ryonara - Parum is next!
@Lucius Cypher Your attack misses, the javelin impacting the ledge and bouncing above the kobold's head.

@Norschtalen You are up!
Now let's see hereā€¦

@Lucius Cypher Both saves pass, be it that advantage and disadvantage cancel one another out. Be advised that you will be taking additional damage, be it reduced. Amount will be detailed in post mechanics section shortly.

@The Harbinger of Ferocity First save passes, meaning reduced damage. The second save fails, but you are already under a similar effect so I don't see stacking effects that are quite that alike as a meaningful thing to do. Amount of damage will appear in the mechanics section shortly.

EDIT: There we go, info is all set in the hider and Orchid is next in the order!
In the flickering light of her oil lantern, the flame beginning to die out at the most inconvenient of times though for now still illuminating just far enough for Parum to throw her spell. Unfortunately it seemed the target of not only hers but the pink-haired priestess was particularly strong willed example of their race, quite possibly the leader of this gang and the mastermind behind this ambush. Just as unassuming in their figure as the rest, their hardiness against the magical assault suggested something else. A shriek was shouted to the air as a signal, and another pair of kobolds poked their heads up, this time wielding very different looking containers. The main defining feature was likely the burning rag poking out of the thing.

And so another pair of projectiles came thrown, each aimed at a particular fighter in the front lines of the heroes of Greenest, the glued and the grappled facing a danger after another as the jars cracked and sprinkled burning oil around, but it seemed thanks to less than shoddy construction the projectile refused to wholly detonate, leaving itself leaking its contents by the feet of those that were either struck by them or who avoided such a fate with deft enough movement despite their difficult situation. And like thieves in the night, another pair of glue pots came from the darkness of the kobold's little corner, again aimed at Orchid and Brannor, barely making it to them. There was little strategy to this past the immediate impact of the ambush, leaving the backline in one piece despite all that was lobbed at the front.

But there was something that the kobolds defying all odds had neglected to make note of: They were indeed defying all odds. They could not trust the tentacled stalagmite would remain on their side, and with fire licking at its tentacles it very much seemed like it was not considering that option for its own either. The champions suggested an alternative, possibly more lucrative approach. And it might just as well take it. Yet in some corner of its small mind, it devised a plan of its own. The tentacles left both Brannor and Orchid well and alone, ripping themselves free of the glue as it might have covered them, yet Kyra found no such freedom granted for herself. There came no verbal answer from the creature yet, but it most certainly bit its teeth together in what resembled a sneer.

The rapid changes in the situations were soon reacted to by the druid among them as well, and when he saw how the fellow momentary tiger was targeted by several projectiles pelting at his battle readiness he knew what to do. He darted forth on all of his four clawed limbs, muscles flexing beneath patterned fur as he threw himself against a patch of glue, giving Brannor a shove that helped him break free from the half-encasing sticky shell that had begun forming around him. Torus slunk between the weretiger and the sheer drop now, baring the wild shape's teeth. He was ready to roll, with semi-liquid glue on his fur or not.

@The Harbinger of Ferocity Did you have something to counteract the effect if the monster's grapple? If not, the roll for ending the other effect would have been at disadvantage.

As for the lantern thing, I'm trying to get that part sorted soon. Stuff is still pretty wild, but I'll match the set deadline for the group if nothing else.
Come to think of it, did the group put up a light source for Parum to see the kobolds? I just recalled that halflings do not have darkvision.
14, @Norschtalen. A good roll on their part, but at least not all that much was lost.

We move on to Parum @Ryonara.
That I understand but is Brannor permitted to choose what he is escaping, @Hekazu? For example, choosing to break the restraining effect imposed by the kobolds without attempting to break the holding creature? He has not real quarrel with the monster they are speaking with. Is it random? Is it a choice? Does it go from the most recent effect working back to the oldest?

I'll say that it is a choice. Mind that the creature's grappling does impose disadvantage upon Strength based escapes, and the glue bombs aren't exactly something one would dance their way out of, sadly.
Am I able to see the kobolds from where I'm at? Also I'm guessing it'll be an action if I want to try and not be restrained anymore?

You are able to see two in three-quarters cover, almost below the ledge again. And yes, you would have to take an action to try and escape.

Is it possible to break that effect without it being considered a challenge to the other restraint, @Hekazu?

I am afraid both of the effects causing the condition need to be escaped from as an action. By you or a nearby ally.
Looks like Kyra kicking things off to me. Remember your current condition as restrained and even somewhat weakened @Norschtalen.

As for the failed DEX save by Brannor, he is now Restrained by a second effect, namely the glue bomb. Good to know, I suppose.
