Skull Gorge Battle Plan

Since it will be two weeks before we can resume the game, you guys could use the time to talk about your plan on taking – and if everyone agrees – destroying Skull Gorge Bridge.

Use the comments on this post to voice your suggestions. I’ll update the main post as the ideas and suggestions come in.

This post will be marked as Private by next week, in case some of you are shy about having the world read your ideas. This means though that you will need to be logged in WordPress to view this post.

Let’s not wait until the next game to make a plan.


Dealing with the dragon

Plan A – Earthbind (c.o. Valthurne)

Level: Druid 2, sorcerer/wizard 2
Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
Target: One creature
Duration: 1 minute/level (D)
Saving Throw: Fortitude negates
Spell Resistance: Yes

You hinder the subject creature’s ability to fly (whether through natural or magical means) for the duration of the  spell. If the target fails its saving throw,  its fly speed (if any) becomes 0 feet. An airborne creature subjected to this spell falls to the ground as if under the effect of a feather fall  spell. Even if a new effect would grant  the creature  the ability to fly, that effect is suppressed for the duration of the earthbind spell.

Either find a druid -such as a Keeper of Eth – to help you, or see about acquiring the scroll for Iroel to use. Cast and hope to the gods Ozyrrandion does not make his fortitude saving throw.

Plan B – Protection AND Arrows

Protection from Energy (Acid) and lots of arrows or bolts. Walk in and keep firing until the dragon drops!


Destroying the Bridge

Plan A – Giants! (c.o. Valthurne)

Find some giants. If you could offer them the magic gauntlet you found in Vraath Keep, maybe they will help smash the bridge.


No giants were seen in the Witchwood for years. The last time they were seen, they weren’t in very good terms with the humans (see History of Vraath Keep)

Plan B – Stoneshape (c.o. Valthurne)


Transmutation [Earth]
Level: Clr 3, Drd 3, Earth 3, Sor/Wiz 4
Components: V, S, M/DF
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Touch
Target: Stone or stone object touched, up to 10 cu. ft. + 1 cu. ft./level
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

You can form an existing piece of stone into any shape that suits your purpose.

Prytannia can prepare and cast it. Perhaps she could use it to dismantle the foundations of the bridge, one large stone at a time.
