Let's Try it Again, With Less Deaths

28th September 2017

The Troubleshooters still need to fix the problem of the corridor painted the wrong colour. One plan involved burning the paint off the walls, by starting an electrical fire. This was achieved by attaching wires from their heated socks to the wall and plugging them in to a mains socket, although 'achieved' is the wrong word here.

The Troubleshooters' next clones arrive to continue the mission. 'I liked that plan, it was just the execution that wasn't so good.'

'I don't know how you can say that when it executed all of you pretty quickly.'

At Least, Let's Hope So

'If I just had a bigger bomb, I could detonate it to kill all the Infrared citizens, and there wouldn't be any left that need to use this corridor.'

'You don't have a bigger bomb, though.'

'No. Okay, I have a be— another plan.'

'You can say 'better'. That's definitely the right word here.'

I Hope it Doesn't Make Your Teeth White, Troubleshooter

21st September 2017

The Troubleshooters have a mission to get a corridor mistakenly painted white back to its original colour. This is proving trickier than expected, for various reasons that are beyond their security clearance.

'Maybe we can scrape the paint off the walls? We don't have many tools, but I do have a toothbrush. I'll use that!'

It's a successful action! The toothbrush cleans the wall really quite well, giving it a nice sheen.

'Huh. It's almost like it's painted on.'

I Imagine You're Right

'Can we see the god through the portal?'

'It's just shimmering light at the moment. It's like the opening of a wormhole.'

'That doesn't help. I've not actually seen any wormholes.'

'Use your imagination.'

'Okay, in my imagination the opening of a wormhole is like a full-blown IMAX experience. We see the god in amazing detail.'

'Well, your imagination is wrong.'

Spoiler: Not the Room We First Thought

'Which way does the door open?'

'It opens in to the room.'

'... which room?'

It Just Stops Being a Skill Check

27th July 2017

We were at the bottom of a structure and got to the top quickly thanks to dimension door and fly spells. Now we're at the top of the structure and want to get to the bottom quickly, but have no more spells.

Luckily, there's a crane just sitting there, with a rope leading all the way down to the ground. I'm sure we can use that to slide down.

'There's a hard, moderate, or easy check for going down the rope. If you pass the hard check, you can essentially abseil all the way to the bottom in one round.'

'And even if we fail the hard check, I take it we will still make it to the bottom in one round.'

Well, You Heard Him, GM

20th July 2017

Thinking we're doing well to bypass a swathe of guards by using dimension door and fly spells gets turned around when previously unspotted pteradons start swooping down on us. At least they're being ridden, and our monk is still flying.

The monk starts flying between the pteradons, and rather than fight the riders directly he tries to shove them out of their saddles. The shoves turn out to be successful more often than not, sending the riders plummeting down to a messy death.

The same fall could happen to the monk too, though. Pasha has cast the fly spell, and it requires concentration. Should his concentration break, the spell ends, and the monk no longer flies. 'Don't take damage now', the monk calls to Pasha, 'or I'll have to fly this pteradon!'

'No, this sounds like the perfect time to take damage.'

Let's Hope We Don't Have to Do it Soon

I'm Adding These Skills to my Character Description

'In the room, sacks lie on the ground, along with a broken bookcase. What you notice, though, is a hole 4 feet high, 3 feet wide has been smashed through the south wall.'

'Neat. I apparently have a keen eye for dimensions.'

[A little later]

'You ascend the stairs and go up 20 feet.'

'I have honestly never before walked up some stairs and known how high up I've gone. It's like I've gained a magical power.'

Pasha 'Two-Hats' Has an Opinion on This

22nd June 2017

'Can we wear more than one cloak?'

'The DM's Guide says to use common sense.'

'Well, that's no help.'
