With a final shrill shriek, a flash of feathers and claws, and the squi-lactite drops to the floor oozing brown blood, heaped up lifelessly. The eagle manages to defeat the DARKMANTLE.

(knowledge (whatever) check to id 16+7=23)

 

Picking up and resheathing his sword, he moved to reclaim his dagger, and give the creature a once-over, while plumbing the library of knowledge he had acquired over the years for a probable identity for the thing, in case there was risk of running into another of it's kind down in the catacombs. A sour look upon his face at having encountered something dangerous right away. Though if it was from the danger, or the lack of warning, and care from the priests who supposedly tended the dead here, one would be hard pressed to guess.

"Aye, Ma'alik, we should leave this place.  I am unsure what that was, and I really do not care to learn until we are in a more safe venue.  Although, it appears Silial is concentrating on something.  Is everyone in need of healing?"

 

Once Sillial's daylight spell is over, Sturgis will resume casting Light as needed.

The party gathers up dropped items from the fight.

Sillilial releases his summoned eagle, and begins the complex task of summoning his Eidolon.

During that casing, the daylight spell fades, only to be replaced by a weaker light spell cast by Sturgis.

Janalyth pokes and prods the corpse until he snaps his fingers...

 

"It's a Darkmantle" he says.  It's a magical beast with poor flying ability, weak climbing, dark vision, the ability to summon darkness, and a nasty ability to crush you if it latches on.

We should be alert, sometimes there are more than one."

 

Once you are ready, you finish climbing down the stairs.

The stairs open into a 30' x 30' room, with ornate double doors on the west, north, and east walls.

 

Old carvings cover the walls of this square chamber, thick with dust and cobwebs.  Three sets of stone double doors stand in the three facing walls.  Heavy bronze seals emblazoned with the symbol of Pharasma secure the doors against whatever lies beyond.

 

How do you want to proceed?  Assume you are still on the stairs until you tell me otherwise.

Sturgis steps to the bottom of the stairs, and slightly to the right.  Seeing the door to his right, he looks to see if the door has been damaged in any way from the distance.  He's cautious, the darkmantle and the possibility of traps at this point are a concern.

 

"What way to go?  Right is right, or straight ahead.  Left is never right"  He muses.

Well sillilial now adamantly "talking" with his edilion Reaver a stranglehold angelic creature, all except for its four clawed hands, steps into the room and looks around for any kind of runes.

Ma'alik pauses at the bottom of the stairs opens his senses wide and "feels" for any sort of taint within the room. [detect evil]

Assuming nothing is amiss and no traps have been detected/sprung he will attempt to investigate the carvings upon the walls.

cleaning and sheathing his dagger, he moves to look at the door on the right, studying it for traps  (take 10 for 17) Even though he really did not expect to find any. Assuming that the priests would need to travel through here on a semi-regular basis to do their duty, and hopefully if there were traps they would have been given some warning. If not, well, one thing about his previous bardic training, even in a temple, was that he knew how to curse someone out, thoroughly, in several different languages.

Janalyth checks the right door, and finds no evidence of traps.  It would appear the doors have been secured with ARCANE LOCK.

 

Ma'alik "Scans" the room with his innate ability to ferret out evil wherever it may hide...

and comes up empty.

 

Sillilial looks around for runes, and doesn't find any.

When Sturgis and Sillilial (and Reaver) reach the bottom of the stairs and look around, they find some graffiti scratched into the northern wall.

 

Sturgis will mention first to the party that the carvings are ancient.  They reference the seven Runelords of ancient Thassilon.

 

The graffiti says "My heart beats on the wrong side of my chest, or is it right?  Is left right, or is it wrong? I don't know what it means, or why."

 

You can either try to break the doors open (very difficult), hack down the doors (very noisy and long time), use the Chime of Opening (limited uses) or pick the lock (OK to take 20, which takes 2 minutes).

(27 to pick the lock taking 20)

 

Quietly he hums a tune to himself as he fiddles carefully with the lock. Taking as much time as it takes to either get it open or determine that he was not going to ever get it with his current level of skill.

(5 and 2 for secondary rolls, look like I used all my luck in the fight for the time being)

Sturgis waits patiently, trying to decipher what, if anything he can from the notes on the walls.

 

Knowledge:  History:  9+6= 15,  Probably only what I got above.

      Fantasy Grounds Unity is the name of the upcoming version of our virtual tabletop software, Fantasy Grounds. It's been completely rebuilt from the ground up in Unity. Read on to find out what this all means and why we are excited for this project.
      Fantasy Grounds is a popular system for playing a host of different roleplaying games online.  It is used by more than 130,000 gamers worldwide to connect and play popular games such as Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, Savage Worlds, Call of Cthulhu, and more.  This type of program is commonly referred to as a virtual tabletop, or VTT, due to their ability to emulate various part of an RPG session in a digital form.
      What makes Fantasy Grounds different than competitors is how we expose character sheets and automate large portions of gameplay specifically for each system we support.  This is done through rulesets.  Your experience playing Deadlands Reloaded will differ from D&D and will be unique to that environment, contain custom graphics, character sheets, and automation specific to that game system.  
      One feature shared across most game systems is maps.  Some may use hexes while others use square grids and some may not use grids at all.  Facing is important in some and less so in others.  While FG has featured maps for many years, they have been primarily focused as reproductions of maps in existing adventure modules from our many licensed publishers. We believe that we can enhance these to provide dynamic line of sight, fog of war, and even map building support with painting and tiles.
      What you get for backing this project will be a license for Fantasy Grounds Unity (or FGU). This new game engine has all the great features of current version of Fantasy Grounds (soon to be called Fantasy Grounds Classic) along with new enhanced features. 
      Original Features Supported:
      Multiplayer support for playing tabletop games of Dungeons & Dragons (2E, 3.5E, 4E and 5E), Pathfinder RPG 1, Pathfinder RPG 2, Starfinder. Built-in content for D&D 3.5E, 5E and Pathfinder 1 Officially licensed add-on content available for D&D, D&D Classics (2E), Pathfinder, Starfinder, Savage Worlds, Call of Cthulhu, Basic Roleplaying, Castles & Crusades, Mutants & Masterminds, 13th Age, W.O.I.N., Traveller, and Rolemaster Classic Generic system support through our CoreRPG ruleset Brilliant Campaign Management Integrated character sheets with lots of automation built in for playing and leveling (depending on ruleset and content owned) Combat Tracking 3D dice Fantasy Grounds Unity Enhanced Features Include:
      64-bit support to allow for more content (quality and quantity) Native support for Mac, Linux and Windows PC Network lobby for easy hosting and joining of games (no port forwarding required) Tile based map building Enhanced Drawing Tools Additional Dice Macros support A new FGU only skin Dynamic Line of Sight with enhanced toggle blockers Paint with images, such as walls Animated image effects Backward compatibility with all existing campaigns and DLC from FGC In addition to these features, we are now poised to add even greater functionality going forward. We have lots of ideas for new features and this rebuilt engine will make it easier for us reach those goals and deliver consistent updates for free. 
      Tile based Map Building
      Dynamic Line of Sight (LOS) and Fog of War (FOW)
      Map Fx Layers
      We have already devoted over 4 years and 10,000 developer hours to this project. Any funds raised will help us push it over the edge and begin work on new features and functionality. If the project does exceptionally well, this may even allow us to add even more resources to the team.
      We have over 1200 existing DLC and add-ons. Our goal is to prioritize these by popularity and work on enhancing as many of these as we can. Without enhancements, they will continue to function as they always have in Fantasy Grounds Classic. You will be able to add dynamic line of sight to maps and begin using the new features straight away. As we work through this large back catalog of DLC, we will do all the enhancement and upgrade work for you so you can just load it up and begin using the advanced features without having to define any Line of Sight blockers yourself.

      Since Callie is coming to a close, I have been preparing the Oxidation Beast.
       
      I have one in metal also, so I will paint both together.
       
      I had some 40mm hollow, round lipped bases that seem like a good fit.  I used some styrene model train cobblestone for one, and sculpted dressed stone tiles for the other.
       

       
      I plan for one to use the 5th Edition Monster Manual color scheme (Bones)

       
      And the metal one to follow the Pathfinder Bestiary 1 color scheme.  It has a red with black stipple color scheme.

      This was a very fun group to paint.  They also went very fast.  I finished them in January, but just got around to photographing them.
      I can't pick a favorite, they all have so much personality.  I tried some OSL on the fire elemental's base.
      The camera settings were changed on the solo shots of the air elemental to tone down the white from overpowering.
      It ended up kind of dark.
      Enjoy.

      I love this model.  Even with her slightly too-long sword hilt and bendy sword.  I straightened it, but it has slowly bent again.
      This is a figure to represent a female paladin of Sarenrae for our Pathfinder Reign of Winter campaign: a redhead whose favorite color is green.  That is why she is on a snow base.
      I wanted to spend a lot of time on her, and am very happy with the blending on the gray NMM.  It took about 3 rounds of painting transitions then glazing over the lines to smooth everything out.
      I tried a little weathering to the leather scabbards and belt to make them look scratched from adventuring use. 
      This was also the first time I tried giving a female figure makeup: blush, eye shadow, and lipstick.  I'm not sure how good that came out, I'll let you all tell me.
      The sword blade was the least successful part.  It just didn't want to cooperate, which is due in part to the softer details on the casting.
      I hope you like her as much as I do.  C&C Welcome.

      The MapForge software (which runs on Mac & Windows) was designed to create customized tactical-scale battlemaps for RPGs, and is already supported by an impressive 80+ mapping content Add-Ons (12 of which are free!) covering all major game genres. Maps produced with the software can either be printed for use at the gaming table, or used in virtual tabletop software such as Roll20 or Fantasy Grounds.
       
      But despite the wealth of fantasy mapping content already available, GMs have been clamoring for even more. So we've got some great new content lined up, and are raising funds to cover the porting/development costs.
       
      Click here or on the image below to check out the latest Kickstarter campaign for MapForge, which just launched two days ago.
       

       
       
      Note that the software itself is already developed and available (though a new version is due out later this month); this crowdfunding campaign is only to fund the development/porting of the new fantasy-genre mapping content.
       
      Fairly quick delivery of rewards is expected (August), and there are no shipping costs involved, since it's all digital downloads.
       
      Campaign launched on: May 22, 2019
      Campaign ends on: June 17, 2019
       
      Some boardgamers and wargamers were quick to catch on that the software can also be used to produce custom game boards or tiles for games such as Myth, Descent, HeroQuest, Aliens, Skull Tales, and many others.
