I’m going to go with the roll over text with this one. Enkidu won’t be able to gloat with a dead party. Though I bet he’ll do just enough to just barely get them to the manticore alive. At which point he can play hereo coming in fully prepared while the others bug Morty for some healin’.
Dude, don’t give it all away! 😉
This is assuming the room isn’t blocking all transportation spells except the mad wizard’s, to prevent anyone from bypassing it….
If this dungeon was build with an ounce of logic, I would go looking for a secret staircase. But as the module this is based on is an “old-style dungeon crawl”, logic doesn’t figure into it and rooms are built for the sole purpose of being traps and challenges for adventurers.
Teleportation blocker would be a funny addition.
YOU JUST LOADE THE GUN! NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER TELL THE DM/GM the flaw in your plan or the one thing that the enemies can or could of done to foil your plan completly. Or mention it while s/he is within earshot.
Isn’t Morty always the first to die?
Unless you count Martin.
That’s why became a troll. Seems the DM realized most monsters can’t kill him now so they don’t try anymore. They shouldn’t know that with his hat of disguise, but DM’s metagame.
And once again Enkidu saves the day… except this time he does it before the party is in trouble.
I vote Enkidu gets bored and decides to hurl giant fireballs of doom down the hallways.
That’s one vote for fireballs!
Arcane Caster’s Motto: Vene Vidi Igni (I came, I saw, I set it on fire!)
Is there any problem a Fireball can’t solve?
A fire elemental? …And other creatures from the plane of fire. Also some kinds of Slaad, IIRC.
And lots of demons and such stuff in general(like the aforementioned Slaads).
OK, OK…so you should have Cone of Cold memorized too…just in case.
And that’s what elemental substitution metamagic is for. Fireball… of acid, or sonic damage.
Sonic’s been errata’d out. No go.
Problem with elemental substitution is that it only changes it to one particular energy. I much prefer knowing spells that do the base damage in other forms – scintillating sphere is a pretty awesome blaster spell.
Reminded me of this.
The monsters are not so easily distracted and the rest of the party has to kill them all leaving Enkidu out of the XP.
Can’t imagine he’d be all that excited about that. 😥
Odd….post flagged for moderation, and I didn’t even have a link in it?
Weird. I got an email asking to moderate your post, but couldn’t find it when I went looking for it. For all your adoring masses, the post was:

I like his chart of ninjas: http://www.commissionedcomic.com/?p=3299
um… what part of Enkidu putting himself in a cage with multiple manticores is a good idea? Is he immune to his own fireballs now?
Maybe they’re using DDO rules…where you can stand right in your own firewall, spamming point blank fireballs, and only the enemies take damage….
I’m sick of his love of ninjas. 😡 Pirates rule!
