Several sheep start talking and try to answer you question at the same time. You can't make out a single word from the cacophony.

You hear an exceptionally loud BAAA and the crowd goes silent.

One sheep starts heading towards the low wooden fence and you at the same time. He gently pushes other sheep aside to reach you.

"Last night, when me an' my family were finishin' our supper somepony heard noises outside. Usually we wouldn't bother goin' outside that late, but the sounds were were loud and weren't far so me and my brothers decided to see what was goin' on. Armed with a lantern, pitchforks and shovels we headed outside, it was gettin' dark 'lready so it was kinda hard to see, even with the lantern. We didn't know what ta expect, usually wolves stay clear of settlement an' there are no monsters 'round here, but we took somethin' to defend ourselves with.

Once outside, we could hear the noises coming from the chicken coop so we headed there. Six big ponies oughta scare away all burglars and thieves. We were expectin' some pony stealin' chickens or somethin' but instead there was this pony in white dress, no, he wore this dress with white feathers on it. He was chantin' somethin', dunno what it exactly was, but it was magic, I'mma sure of that.

We yel'd at him and told him not ta move. He stopped his mumbling and turned to face us. He waved something he was carryin' in his hooves and there was this flash, nothing big, but we had ta cover eyes anyway."

He stops for a moment, and looks at the ground.

"We open'd our eyes, but there was no fireballs or anythin' flyin' round so we thought we oughta teach this 'wizard' how farm magic works. Except, now we had trouble movin' and talkin' properly; we were sheep. The pony in feathers just laughed and told us to stay here and be quiet. We were too shock'd to do anythin'. He ran to the main buildin' and turned the rest of me family in to sheep and told nopony would be hurt if all would do as his told. Of course everypony was too scared to fight so he lead them here - inside this corral and told us to stay put.

Then he continued his… magic thingy and we saw as the chicken somehow were shrunk and flew into… a bird cage he was carryin' round. Once he was done with tha chicken, the glow of magic disappeared and we don't know where he went off to. Probably did the shrinkin' trick to the real sheep as well!"

He inhales.

"Tha's everythin' in a nutshell. Me name's Pa Corn."

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 382760

I extend my hoof to shake his.
"My name is Dewberry, nice farm you got here."

I look around.
"Do you guys got any idea where this white pony head too?"

Pone 382771

File: 1364672911583.jpg (138.7 KB, 930x617, large-chicken-coops-1.jpg)

He points towards the chicken coop that lies a few dozen meters away, apparently empty.

"That was *baa* where we last saw him."

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 382780

I gulp.
"…. A… are you sure? If so, he might be still here."

I then look at the Pa corn,
"Dont you got some friends around here? What is the nearest neighbor and how far? We need you and your family to be safe."

Barque [Cleric] 382802

I go over to the chicken coop and try to find any trail he might have left.

Barque [Cleric] 382804


Roll #1 7 = 7

Pone 382808

"Miss… Dewberry, most farms 'round surrounding Fishbone are quite large so it's about… eh, 30 minute walk from ta farm to another, even if you cut through the fields. And the walk from there to Fishbone itself takes an hour."

He eyes you for a second.

"Oh, I'm guessing you folk came from town, through the forest? But yes, there are other farms surrounding ours. Hope the chicken fella hasn't hit them yet…

I'm not worried 'bout the wolves returnin' antime soon, however."

Pone 382816

The coop is empty save for loose feathers. On the dirt there are several hoofprints.

Barque [Cleric] 382843

Can I get a scent from the hoofprints?

Roll #1 9 = 9

Pone 382853

Smells like chicken and other farm creatures in the morning. You have the scent and can track the trail if you so wish.

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 382868

"… thats quite far." I frown.

I approach Barque.
"What did you smell Dog?" I asked him as I look and try to smell the air too.

Barque [Cleric] 382876

Off I go!
Do I need to roll to follow the scent?

"I've got the pony's trail."

Pone 382882

The trail heads inside the coop itself, where the chicken sleep.

It may offer humorous comments and other remarks.

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 382886

"I see,,, wha.. wait for me." I follow him.

Pone 382891

You follow Barque to the chicken coop leaving the pony-sheep behind.

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 382894

"You guys, just wait right there. Shout really loud if something happens" I look at them and at Pa corn

Pone 382898

Pa Corn shouts back. "Will do *baa*."

Barque [Cleric] 382910

Do I find him?

Roll #1 1 = 1

Pone 382922

No you do not. You fall on your nose. Dirt does not taste good, no matter how often you taste it.

Barque [Cleric] 382952

I shake it off and try to follow the trail again.

Barque [Cleric] 382955

Damn it.

Roll #1 6 = 6

Pone 382965

After swiping off the dirt off your nose you sniff the ground. You head inside the coop and look around. It's slightly darker and more scents are mixed into the air. Now it seems like the scent… is climbing walls towards the ceiling?


I thrust my staff upwards to jab it.
"Get down here!"

Roll #1 1 = 1

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 382974

"See anyt.."

"What?" I look up and ready my bow.


Roll #1 7 = 7

Pone 382983

You swing your staff wildly around the imaginary enemy. It hits the ceiling and gets stuck on some smaller support pieces. Great job.

Barque - Ceiling 0-1.
You see only Barque's staff hanging from the ceiling and maybe a glimpse of something else too.


I try to pull it free.
"I know you're in here! I can smell you!"

Roll #1 1 = 1

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 382987

"….. whats that?" Fly up slowly but not too high and try to see more clearly.


I then try to get Barque's staff.

Roll #1 6 = 6

Pone 382997

It's of no use and you only manage to shake off some hay that lands on your face.
On the main support pillar, next to Barque's undefeated staff there is something oddly shaped.

Barque [Cleric] 383020

"Pony, my staff is caught on something! Free it for me."

I brush the hay off.

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 383029

I try to look at it and try to see what it is at my position. Perhaps get a little closer.

"Uhhmm… there is something up here." my voice cracked a bit.

"Its … scary."

Pone 383032

You manage to defeat the hay that assaulted you, but your true enemy, your staff, still hanging from the ceiling, apparently mocking you.

Pone 383038

It looks like… a basked made from sticks?

Barque [Cleric] 383041

"What does it look like?"

I try to pull my staff down again.

Roll #1 5 = 5

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 383044

Try to get Barque's walking stick then while keeping myself away from that thing on the roof.

"Perhaps its a beehive I dont want near it.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Pone 383050

The staff starts moving. More force is required to get it fully loose.
You wiggle the staff around a bit and it comes loose. It lies safely in your hooves now.

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 383059

Give it to Barque while smiling.

I then look around.
"Do you think he.. or it is here?"


"Good work, pony."

I climb up to where she is and look around.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Pone 383081

You effortlessly climb up ,using the walls to your advantage, next to levitating pegasus and see what she has seen; it's a bird cage.


I gingerly pit it up with the end of my staff and carry it outside.

Roll #1 4 = 4

Barque [Cleric] 383090

Pone 383099

As you move your staff over it your staff suddenly shrinks. It turns smaller and smaller until it looks like a toothpick, falls off your paws and drops on the support pillar next the bird cage.

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 383102

"Celestia's mane!" I look at his staff.

Barque [Cleric] 383107

"…I am going to tear that pony's heart out. Pony, we should go back too town and get someone that knows something about magic."


Pone 383109

You can barely see the miniature staff lying on the support pillar for a few seconds. Then it begins to grow again, until it had reached its original size.

Pone 383110

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 383114

I ready my bow and look around the room just in case someone is watching us.

"Yes, but we must first escort those ponies turned sheep to one of their neighbors. We cant leave them here alone."

Roll #1 6 = 6

Pone 383120

The only noises you hear are completely natural and there is nopony watching you.

Barque [Cleric] 383131

I take my staff pack.

"You know, pony. The sheep said that the pony was shrinking things down and putting them in there. I have a theory."
I use my staff to push you towards the cage.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 383145

"W.. wha..??" My eyes widen up in confusion as he push me.

Pone 383153

Barque takes her staff back and pokes the pegasus on her wing. This messes up her wing rhythm, loses control and flies toward the cage. Just as she is about to hit it, she begins to shrink. Dewberry shrinks like Barque's staff did and until she is small enough to fly through the cage's bars.

Dewberry lands safely inside the cage. You see a large (or small) building a meters away from your landing zone.

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 383157

I shake my head from the landing.
I look at the building. What does it look like? Is it big?

Are there anything moving besides me? Also crouch low.


Roll #1 2 = 2

Barque [Cleric] 383158

"Tell me what you see, pony!"

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 383170

I look at Barque.
"A house!" I call to hi.m

Pone 383174

The building look like it has been assembled from multiple farm buildings. It is very large compared to you, but compared to your real measurements. It's about 20-30 centimeters tall.

Barque's breathing tosses some dirt around. You are completely alone, if you ignore the gigantic diamond dog watching you now.

Pone 383175

Barque's a SHE.

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 383186

Sorry always forgot.

Fly out and maintain my balance, see if I can get back to normal size.

Barque [Cleric] 383193

I probably can't hear that.

Pone 383195

You leave the cage, and at first nothing seems to happen but then you begin growing again. After a few short seconds, you're back to your original size again.

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 383203

I look at Barque.
"There's a house inside the cage!" I extend my hoof wide.

Barque [Cleric] 383219

I laugh.
"Mages. I love 'em."
I nudge her back towards the cage with a paw then climb up onto the beam next to it.

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 383225

"You want us to go inside? Isnt that a bit hasty?:

Pone 383226

You are now sitting steadily on the support beam. The cage lies between you and Dewberry.

Barque [Cleric] 383235

"What else are we going to do? Grow old while those idiots we came with stay outside?"
I crawl towards the cage.

Pone 383240

You are almost hovering overing the cage. Moving any closer will shrink you.

Barque [Cleric] 383248

I know.

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 383250

I sigh then assist Barque to move inside the cage with me.

Pone 383270

You both move over the cage and like before, you begin to shrink.

Both of you are now inside the cage and this time Barque sees the weird building assembled from multiple agricultural buildings. It doesn't look aesthetically pleasing and wasn't designed with efficiency in mind either.

The monsters inside are very tough and may be too tough for the two of you. More party members are recommended.

Barque [Cleric] 383278

Nothing to do until they show up, I guess. Thank you for running.

Pone 383284

Thank you for playing.

Dewberry(Pegasus Tracker) 383287

Alright then. thanks dude.
The cage creeps me out.

Pone 383289

*but compared to your real measurements is it more like a doll house.
Thanks for playing. It is a very special cage.

Pone 421778

File: 1369766336322.jpg (201.69 KB, 768x768, x.jpg)

Before you lies the mishmash of farmhouses, barns and stables. And far, far above your heads, you can see the cage's bars which are thick as a castle's wall. Other than you two, there is nothing living within the immediate vicinity.

The smell of dried hay lingers in the air and you can hear the wind gently blowing outside the chicken coop.

Varquee [Cleric] 421779

I investigate the house.

Roll #1 8 = 8

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421780

Fly along and follow him.
"I wonder who made this cage." I touch the steel frames as we pass by

Pone 421781

It looks as if a giant had simply picked several building, piled all of those building on top of each others and then connected the buildings with walkways and small bridges.

There are multiple doors leading inside the building. Some of them are nailed shut.

The frames are warm and somewhat rusty.

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421782

Do I see any nearby unnailed door? Any open window or pathways leading inside?

Roll #1 1 + 2 = 3

Pone 421783


You twist and turn your head so violently that your hat flies off.

Nope, no doors or windows here.

Varquee [Cleric] 421784

I try to Burrow my way through a nailed shut door.

Roll #1 8 = 8

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421785

Ah no! My hat!

Go and grab and get it.

"See anything?"

Roll #1 6 = 6

Pone 421786

You choose the nearest door, sealed by nails and board.

Luckily for you, some of the boards are old and weak. Your paws quickly rip the boards off and the door is ripe for opening.
You find your hat. At least it looks like yours.

Varquee [Cleric] 421787

"Not yet."

I poke my head inside. What do I see?

Roll #1 9 = 9

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421788

After getting my hat I follow Varquee and try to see what he saw.

Roll #1 4 = 4

Varquee [Cleric] 421789

Barque [Cleric] 421790

Fuck my keyboard.

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421791

Pone 421792

File: 1369767706915.jpg (297.95 KB, 580x829, Beomsik-Won-Archisculpture-008…)

You poke your head though the door.

What you find inside is both expected and unexpected. You believe this room used to be a kitchen. The former kitchen is as if had been cut in half with a large axe and then placed next to a much, much larger room that was also cut in half.
You choose your vantage point poorly and can't see much through the diamond dog's back.

Barque [Cleric] 421793

"Looks safe enough. Goat, check it out."

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421794

"Aye aye!" Go inside and see anything in this room that is out of the ordinary(well more out of the ordinray that is).

Roll #1 10 + 2 = 12

Pone 421795

Nice rolls. Kinda wasted on this roll, sadly.
The room has been used for preparing meal in the last 24 hours, you deduce by the smell and food stains. Carrot soup, no doubt.

The room is not THAT extraordinary.

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421796

"Someone has been using this room today or yesterday…. it means someone… or something is lurking around."

With that I just ready my sword from its scabbard.
"You lead the way Barque." I smiled at her.

Barque [Cleric] 421797

"Good job, goat."

I open another door and look through it.

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421798

With wings spread, I just lower my gaze and bite my lips.
"I'm… no goat."

Barque [Cleric] 421799

I look over my shoulder.
"Why are you saying I called you a goat? I said pegasus."

Pone 421800

You have a sword? Because here's the inventory I know.

Inventory (brief or detailed): Brown ascot cap, traveller's outfit (considered light armor), travelling bag, food, first aid kit, two waterskin (2 water), hand/hoof manacles, thieves tools, bag of bits, magnifying glass, shades, make up kit, sugar cubes, bag of pepper, matchbox (tindertwigs etc), flash light, rope, bow and arrow, dagger

I described the room terribly. Basically the only real door it has was the one you just entered. It is directly connected to the other larger indoor area. There's no door or wall in between them.

Barque [Cleric] 421801

I'll go into that room and look around for another way out.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Pone 421802

File: 1369769012347.jpg (37.12 KB, 1586x575, blah.jpg)

The other 'room' is actually a very large hallway. On the left side, there's a door, which looks very heavy. It's probably the main door. On the right side there is a second door.

There's a small wire in front of the right door.


Can I see what the wire is attached to?

Roll #1 10 = 10

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421804

Dagger it is, my bad

I scrunched at this.

I follow Barque.

"What is it?"

Barque [Cleric] 421805

"Tripwire by the door on the right."

Pone 421806

Clearly. There's tiny a bell in a poorly hidden space, just above the door.
You're just behind her.

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421807

I nod at this and stay put

Barque [Cleric] 421808

I step over the wire and open the door.

Pone 421809

The door opens with a creeeaaaaak, but the door's sound is silenced by animal noises.

You've entered a stable of some kind, judging by the room's appearance. Chickens run loosely around, doing their chickeny things.

Pone 421810

Freely, not loosely.

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421811

Enter the room cautiously. and see what the chicken looks like, are they healthy?
"Perhaps this is a feeding area of some sort. This might be their stock or food supply."

Barque [Cleric] 421812

"We found the farmer's chicken. Now to find the wizard."
I look around for any traps in here.

Roll #1 3 = 3

Pone 421813

You are not an expert on chickens, but they look quite healthy and well-fed.
You fail to spot any possible trap or alarms.

Barque [Cleric] 421815

I stick my head through the next door.

Roll #1 7 = 7

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421816

Follow him.

Pone 421818

There are several rooms like this, only occupied by different farm animals so you ignore those. Quickly, you find a door with something different behind it: stairs leading up.

Barque [Cleric] 421819

"Pegasus, check up the steps for me."

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421822

With that I go slowly upstairs and check it out.

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4

Barque [Cleric] 421823

I check the stiarcase.

Roll #1 8 = 8

Pone 421825

As you reach the top of the staircase you find a door. From behind the door, you hear voices.

The staircase has all kind of flora growing in it, and vines climbing up the walls. It's quite different than the previous areas.

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421827

I signal Barque that there are voices there.

Approach the door and try to hear the conversation.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Barque [Cleric] 421828

I do the same as Dewberry.

Roll #1 8 = 8

Pone 421831

You both silently press your ears against the door and listen to the voices.

"Can't you [unclear] I care [unclear] proof enough?"

"You actions [unclear] [unclear] [unclear] cease [unclear] [unclear]"

This is followed by something that sounds like frustrated yell. After that there is silence

The momentary silence is followed by approaching footsteps.

Barque [Cleric] 421832

I wait until they get right up next to the door before kicking it open.

Roll #1 5 = 5

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421833

Oh crap, ready my dagger and hide.

Roll #1 1 = 1

Pone 421835

You prepare yourself for an ambush…
But Dewberry blows it, drops her dagger, trips on her feet and falls on you. Slamming you against the door.

The creature on the other side must've heard it.

Barque [Cleric] 421836

I try to pick her up and throw her through the door.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421838

"Wha! what!?"
Try to steer in the air trying not to hurt myself?

Roll #1 7 = 7

Pone 421841

Barque grabs Dewberry firmly in her paws, pulls her arms back to gather more momentum. The pegasus is sent involuntarily flying towards the door at a high speed. She hits the door, and luckily for her, it's wooden and explodes into wooden chips.

Dewberry tries to correct her flight and protect herself. She manages to turn on her belly during the flight, but she's still flying backwards.

Her hindlegs hit something, hard. An "Ooofhh!" is heard and something drops on the floor. Dewberry herself, is unharmed, if slightly confused.

Your actions have given you a bonus of two (2) to your next move or roll.

Pone 421843

File: 1369773183436.jpg (131.44 KB, 900x930, atg_day_3__dynamic_entry_by_hi…)

Forgot my pic.


I crash through the already broken door and hit the most wizardy looking person in the head with my staff.

Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421847

Ack! Looking around. I hit the guy whom i manage to hurt with my hoof.

Roll #1 1 + 2 = 3

Pone 421848

On the floor there is a pony dressed in a dark brown cloak with green stripes. He has several leaves on his head and cloak. You hit him with in the cheek with your staff. There's a sound that's a mixture of splat and crack.

Several teeth are sent flying from his mouth.
Still feeling dizzy. You weakly slap Barque in the face.

(No Hit loss)

Barque [Cleric] 421849

I growl at her then look around for source of the other voice.



Roll #1 8 = 8

Pone 421851

File: 1369773944797.png (671.02 KB, 681x1070, queen_banana_bird_01.png)

There's a tall, rocky wall on your right side. And on the other side there's a bird's head, looking at you confused. The bird is brightly colored and very tall.

"Who? Never mind. Don't let the druid sound the alarm!" She yells at you.


I plant my foot on the pony's chest and point my staff at her.
"Who and what are you?"

Roll #1 9 = 9

Pone 421854

*On the wall's other side, there's a bird's head.

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421855

I shake my head and look at that…. thing!

"By Celestia's Mane what are you?!"

Pone 421856

"I'm the Banana Bird Queen and I'm being held prisoner by these… good-for-nothings"


I tie up the pony I hit.
"How many are there?"

Roll #1 2 = 2

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421858

"Banana what?? Are you a talkin…. wait let me think." I hold my head for a moment.
"Why did they capture you? Are you a… you know Queen? As in a real Queen?|

Pone 421859

"Only two have visited me–"

You skill with rope is lacking and the pony manages to kick you in the stomach as he tries to struggle free.

You loose you grip of him.
She is interrupted as the pony kicks Barque.


I punch him in the gut and time him up while he's overcome with pain.

Roll #1 6 = 6

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421862

Get that pony and put him down!

Roll #1 10 = 10

Pone 421864

Barque's fist hits him and his eyes enlargen as his yelps in pain. Dewberry stops on him for a good measure and he is safely bound with rope now.

Pone 421865

*as he yelps in pain
*stomps on him

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421866

After the struggle I look back at the bird thing.
"Now, where are we?"

Barque [Cleric] 421868

"Now then. About our reward for rescuing you."

Pone 421871

File: 1369775401215.jpg (54.22 KB, 600x588, Bananabird.jpg)

"I'm the banana bird queen. Queen may be my title to some, but to my children, I'm a mother. I reign no kingdoms nor do I have castles or thrones."
She eyes you suspiciously.

"A reward? You have not rescued anything yet. This wall in front of me is magical. I believe the pony you just tied up might know of a way to break the spell."

Barque [Cleric] 421872

I slap him awake.
"Hey, pony, wake up and make me some money."

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421873

I held my head trying to make sense out of this.
"Banana, Bird, Queen. So where do you live? Why did these guys take you?" I pointed at the tied up ponies

Pone 421875

Forgot to explain why she was capture.
"The leader of these criminals wishes me to aid him in his 'campaign against civilization'. He thinks I have great magical powers. The poor pony.

My home is far, far in South. In Zhewrica."
He tries to speak with several of his teeth missing and an aching.

"Faff woo meen?"

Pone 421876

and an aching jaw*

Barque [Cleric] 421877

I heal his missing teeth.
"You are going to tell me how to free the banana queen bird, or I am going to take you back to my tunnels and sell you to the biggest, gayest diamond dog I know."

Roll #1 9 + 2 = 11

Barque [Cleric] 421879

"And remember, if that happens I am going to take your teeth back. You'll fetch me a better price without them."

Pone 421880

His teeth regrow and jaw relocates to its intended position.

He eyes you for a moment.

"A cleric." he mumbles to himself and thinks for while, "I do not know the ritual used to bind her, but perhaps I can show where you could start looking."

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421881

I raise any eyebrow at this.
"Fetch a better price? Are they bandits?"

Barque [Cleric] 421882

"Tell me where to walk, pony."
I pick him up and sling him over my shoulder.

"No, without his teeth he'd fetch a better price because-Just how old are you, pony?"

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421884

I tilt my head.
"17 turning 18, why?"

I then look at the bird.
"What are we going to do with the bird queen? We cant just leave her here."

Barque [Cleric] 421885

"Ah. We can't get her out until this pony shows us how to get her out."

Pone 421886

He hangs over your shoulder like a rolled rug.

"Over by the bookcase on the on the opposite side of the door you broke. There's a button that opens a secret door."

"I believe I'll be here. Unless the leader of these crooks comes to look for me, they can't touch me due to the spell."

Pone 421887

I'll be safe here*

Barque [Cleric] 421888

"Pony, find that button."

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421890

"Ah thats good to hear."
I then look at her,
"Want to come with us or do you prefer we come back after we find a safe route?"

"Ah yes." I then began to look.

Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

Pone 421891

"This button could also set off the alarm." The banana bird queen says over the stone wall.

"Shut it, chicken." responds the bound pony. "Either you trust me, or you wander around this place under you're caught."

"I do not know yet. I must find out if any of my children are also here."

Pone 421892

*until you're caught

Man, dem typos.

Barque [Cleric] 421893

Is the banana queen stuck to the wall? What is keeping her from leaving?

"Press the button. The pony knows what happens if he has lied."

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421894

I gulp at this and press it.

Pone 421895

File: 1369777325312.gif (21.06 KB, 180x158, 180px-EvilBarrier.gif)

It's similar to this situation. She cornered by a magical wall.
Dewberry hits the button and all you hear several bells ringing.

You've set the alarm.

Barque [Cleric] 421896

"I warned you, pony."
I drop him on the ground and smash him in the face with the metal end of my staff. Let's see if that breaks his teeth and knocks him out.

Roll #1 5 = 5

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421897

Oh no oh no oh no oh no oh no panic!
How much do I panic?

Roll #1 7 = 7

Pone 421898

He drops on the floor and you administer the staff to his face. After several blows, he is unconscious and missing several teeth.
Not too badly. You probably have a few minutes anyone can reach the room you're in.

"So it was a trap." Sighs the banana bird queen. "I wonder how will my captors respond."

You guys wanna keep going?

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421900

I still can
Try to hide!

Roll #1 5 = 5

Barque [Cleric] 421901

I'm can keep going. What is your Steam name?

Pone 421903

You behind the chairs that were in front of the bookcase. It's far from perfect, but should you provide you with some stealth.
Cool. It's fauffi.

Pone 421904

hide behind*

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421905

A box? or perhaps at table? Oh a chair!

Roll #1 2 = 2

Barque [Cleric] 421907

I dump the pony behind some cover and try to find a place to hide myself.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Pone 421909

Are you relocating or?
Deciding that the suitable location for the unconscious pony is behind the same chairs as Dewberry you drop him there and hide yourself next to doorway.

Pone 421910

as Dewberry is currently hiding behind*

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421911

Nope hiding under the table. Go go go.

Barque [Cleric] 421912

I wait with my staff held high to clobber the next pony that comes through the door.

Roll #1 8 = 8

Pone 421913

I don't remember mentioning a table anywhere, but, details.
The floor under the table looks inviting so you drop and crouch beneath the table. No one can see you immediately.
Your staff is raised high and you're poised to strike.

You hear some noises coming downstairs.

Barque [Cleric] 421915

Keep it steady and wait.

Pone 421916

"What's going up there? Is the big bird still locked up? Hello?"

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421917

Try to imitatea the voice of the pony captive we have.
"Yes the bird is locked up!"


Roll #1 2 = 2

Barque [Cleric] 421918

I roll my eyes.

Pone 421920

Your imitation is far from successful.

You hear someone chuckling.

"What, are we getting raided by fillies now? Don't go anywhere, we'll send someone up in a moment." He yells back.

Pone 421921

A minute or two passes and you begin to think if anything's going to happen. Then you hear stomping noises. These are not hoofsteps. It is something sharp would hit the floor with every step.

Something big is coming up. You hear some growling as the steps come closer.

Pone 421922

it is as if*

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421923

"N….. oh no!"

"What are we gonna do?!"

Barque [Cleric] 421925

I mouth the word "wait" at you.

Pone 421927

File: 1369780237173.jpg (110.09 KB, 973x1054, Wyvern.jpg)

The noises can now be heard just outside the room. Something taller than Barque pokes its head in. It is similar to a dragon, but much more primitive looking, missing its forelimb and apparently unable to speak.

A wyvern has come.

Could we stop here. I keep butchering spelling and grammar like it was my day job.

Barque [Cleric] 421928

I'm okay to stop.

Pone 421929

and is apparently unable to speak.

Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421930

Awww… will wait for the next run. Thanks for running.

Pone 421931

Thanks for playing.


Dewberry(pegasus Stalker) 421933

Next run btw?

Barque [Cleric] 424471


Pone 424472

The scaled beast is slightly taller than the door, its wings make it harder to move indoors and thus it has trouble entering the room, giving you some time as the beast decided the best course of actions.

Also, enter Salty.

Salty [Sailor] 424474

"Never, ever buy cheap scrolls of home teleport, lads! Now what in Kraken's beard is going on?!"

Barque [Cleric] 424475

I look out the window. How far is the drop?

Pone 424481

The room has no windows. The only way out is through the door.

Salty [Sailor] 424485

"You ready to tell me what's going on quite yet?"
um…attack the thing with my pistols?

Roll #1 6 + 2 = 8

Salty [Sailor] 424486

That should be 9 because I have vantage point.

Barque [Cleric] 424487

"Fighting a wyven."
I try to Wrath to knock the wyvern back down the stairs.

Roll #1 3 = 3

Pone 424488

Here are beast's stats.

The wyvern is a cousin, or a sub-species to the dragon. Wyverns are winged, serpent-like creatures. Unlike dragons, wyverns have only two legs, a barbed tail, and have no breath attack, but the wyvern's most deadly weapon is its poisonous tail stinger. Wyverns are also smaller than dragons.

Although they are strong and ferocious, wyverns lack the grace and intelligence which are innate to dragons, meaning they are simple predatory animals. Though rather stupid, the wyvern possesses considerable physical strength and toughness. Wyverns typically prey on deer, goats, and other such creatures.

Young Wyvern


-3 penalty to all physical attacks.
-2 penalty to all poison attacks.

Wyvern Poison: 1 Wound every 2 turns. CD 5.

Salty [Sailor] 424489

So I don't get any positive modifiers, and if I lose vantage point, I get a minus.

Pone 424490

-3 penalty makes that a 6.

You turn around to face a lizard's face. Pulling out your pistols your fire some shots at it. They hit, but don't really do that much damage.
Your Wrath spell does not do what it was supposed to do. Instead you knock Dewberry out cold for a long, long time.

It's like you have no modifiers at all.

Salty [Sailor] 424493

Knockout shot!

Roll #1 4 = 4


I try to Heal Dewberry.
Are you saying that all attacks against it are made at -3? Also, can I get a link to the 1.3 rules?

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4

Pone 424500

>4-3 = 1

You miss the wyvern completely. Wow, get you eyes checked.
Dewberry is awake once more. But she has no player controlling her.

Yes. All attack are made at -3 against it.


Salty [Sailor] 424502

Fire at it

Roll #1 8 = 8


I attack it with my staff.
Thanks for the link. If my experience running CQ2 is worth anything, a Wyvern will wipe a party of two.

Roll #1 2 - 3 = -1

Pone 424513

Penalized in this case will not trigger critical failures as the penalty in this case is simply damage loss.

Way better than your last attempt. Still, you do not cause much harm to the creature.

Your staff simply bounces back from the creature's scales. Owch, your paws hurt.

You've fought wyverns in QC?

Pone 424516

Penalized rolls*

Salty [Sailor] 424518

That's 7 due to my talent.

Roll #1 6 = 6


I use Wrath again.

No, but a 12H/12W creature I made nearly wiped a party of six and their five NPC helpers. Monsters in this system are a lot stronger than they look on paper.

Roll #1 1 - 3 = -2

Pone 424530

Clean hit, however you also targeted one of its more more armored areas.

Wrath is a spell so penalties. However, that is still a crit failure. The Wrath spell spins around the room and then hits Salty. Salty is helpless.


I heal him.
"Stand up, stupid pony!"

Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5

Pone 424534

Really? The pack leader you fought earlier was a 12H/12W creature with 12 minions, that was was capable of PC debuffing and minion buffing rolls.

Barque [Cleric] 424535

Maybe the dice hate my CQ2 party.

Salty [Sailor] 424537

Thanks, doc!

Pone 424539

He's up. With one extra Hit.

Okay, I pussied out with the wolf pack battle and had the minions stop attacking when two PCs were on 1 Wound.


I growl and try to use Wrath again.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Salty [Sailor] 424545

Fire a knock-out! '1d10'

Roll #1 8 = 8

Pone 424549

Success. Your deity smiles upon you, and you feel the magical energy swirling in your limbs as you send it flying towards the wyvern. The creature is visibly shook by your spell. It struggles to stay up, but falls on its face, taking pieces of the wall along with as it crashes through the doorway.

The beast is unconscious.
As the beast falls, your spot a weak point in its neck and your KO Shot bypasses the thick scales. The beast is out cold for 5 rounds.

Salty [Sailor] 424551

"Let's leg it!"


"Kill it and sell its hide!"
I grab my knife and go for its eyes.

Roll #1 9 - 3 = 6

Pone 424560

You walk over the young wyvern. Feeling it still breathing beneath you.
Your knife sinks into the unconscious wyvern's eyes. It does not react in anyway and blood begins to pour from its broken eyes. The beast will die of blood loss soon.

Salty [Sailor] 424562

"well fine then."


I tie the unconscious pony I captured to my back then try to drag the wyvern down the stairs and out of the house.

Roll #1 4 = 4

Barque [Cleric] 424564

"Help me and you get some of the money."

Pone 424566

The creature weights several hundred kilos and is way too heavy for you to drag.

Barque [Cleric] 424569

I try to carve off as much of its scaly skin as I can.

Roll #1 1 - 3 = -2

Pone 424576

You completely both up the job only managing to cut your fingers. Then your knife breaks as you bend it too much.

Pone 424577



I growl and and heal my fingers.
"Bird. Where did you say we could find a way to get you out?"

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4

Pone 424588

The little cuts heal easily.

The queen gazes at the dead wyvern before answering.

"It was the leader of the group, and his assistant who captured me and created this magical prison. I suspect he has some kind magical device. It's easy to use, since none of them appeared to be wizards, but druids so their knowledge of the arcane is probably quite limited. They probably bought those devices or scrolls."


I look around the room for the device.

Roll #1 7 = 7

Pone 424598

The room has two chairs, a small table, a book case with books mostly about botany. It's not here.

Near the magical stone wall that keeps the bird trapped, there however is a small cavity. Perhaps this is where the device should be inserted after it's been found?


I go looking through the house for it, being mindful of that tripwire I found last time.

Roll #1 10 = 10 / Roll #2 7 = 7


There should have only been one roll.

Roll #1 5 = 5

Pone 424603

Looks like you're the only player now. We'll pause for now. Man, people must really dislike my quest.

Barque [Cleric] 424606

Thanks for running.

Pone 424607

Thank you for playing.

Salty [Sailor] 424609

I do/'t. It's just 30C in the tent and I'm mobile, sorry

Pone 424610

It's cool.

Pone 431733

And we're back to this situation.

You're trapped in the room with the banana bird queen and a wyvern is outside the room, trying to get in. Fortunately for you, the door's frames are too small for the wyvern to enter the room.

The beast takes a few steps back and rams in to the frames, loosing up the boarding and the walls give slightly in.

You have three turns before the wyvern can fully enter the room.

"Oh my! My captors have apparently summoned a wyvern. Presumably to kill you, I've not fought such creatures, but they're ferocious. Be careful!" the bird yells over her stone fence.

Campfire 431734


Barque [Cleric] 431735

The autoupdater is still broken for linked threads?
I use Wrath to knock it back down the stairs.

Barque [Cleric] 431736


Roll #1 1 = 1

Pone 431737

I don't know.

Something goes wrong with your ritual and the wyvern remains completely unaffected.

The tied-up and knocked out pony on your back wakes up. He's still groggy, though.

Barque [Cleric] 431738

I knock him out again.

Roll #1 3 = 3

Pone 431740

Waiting for lemon.

DewDrop 431741

I look at Barque.
"You will kill him if you continue that."

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431742

Pone 431744

You attempt to knock him on the head with your staff, but miss.

The wyvern slams its body against the doorframes again, sending several small pieces of wood flying into the room.

One round remaining.

Barque [Cleric] 431745

I try again.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Pone 431748

Right on the noggin.

The pony is once again, safely unconscious with a big lump on his head.

With a mighty crash, the doorframes and the wood surrounding them, give in. Broken and moldy planks are scattered on the floor and the wyvern walks over them as it can finally enter the room. The wyvern turns it head around and scans the room. It stares at Dewberry and roars.

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431750

I get ready my bow and arrow and shoot it!
Marksman shot

Roll #1 10 = 10


I try to hit it with Wrath again.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Pone 431755

Your arrow pierces the beast's left eye. It takes several steps back and roars in pain.
Feeling your deity's blessing, you easily finish the ritual of Wrath, and the wyvern is comatose for one turn.


I start beating it's neck with my staff.

Roll #1 2 = 2

Pone 431759

Remember the damage reduction.

Your staff has zero effect. In fact, you might be beating the creature with a tooth pick.


I hit it harder.

Roll #1 6 - 2 = 4

Pone 431763

Waiting for lemon.

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431765

"Got ya!"
Alright back away and fire arrows at it.

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431770


Roll #1 9 = 9

Pone 431774

The wyvern wakes up from its magical coma. It's furious now.

It blocks your strike and hits you with its wing. 1 Hit lost.

The wyvern enjoys damage reduction thanks to its hardened scales. If you use physical attacks, attach a penalty of 3 to your rolls, please.
Most your arrows don't pierce its scales, but some hit softer, and sink in the flesh.

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431782

I try to shoot it again, finds its weak spot!

All the while I look around. Is there a way to get out of this place? We cant fight this thing in here!

Roll #1 4 - 3 = 1


I hit it with Wrath again.

Roll #1 4 = 4

Pone 431791

Your arrows harmlessly bounce of the wyvern's scales.

The only way out, is through the now-expanded doorway, which you used to enter the room.
Instead of affecting the creature's movement, instead you shock the creature with a bolt of divine energy. It doesn't do much.


Does it being blind in one eye give us any kind of bonus?
I attack it with my dagger.

Roll #1 1 - 3 = -2

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431794

"We must get out of here!" I shout at Bark.
Assist him and fire at the Wyvern again.
Marksman shot.

Roll #1 8 - 3 = 5

Pone 431805

No. I was thinking about it. Maybe if you'll take its other eye as well.
As you're about to hit the wyvern, it counter attacks. You're assuming it will use its jaws, but instead you see its tail rising and feel as the stinger pierces you skin.

You've been poisoned.

Your shot breaks the patagium on one of its wings.


I heal myself.

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9

Pone 431811

All Hits and Wound restored and the poison has been neutralized.

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431813

Cover Barque and attack the wyvern again with my bow and arrow.

Roll #1 1 = 1

Pone 431815

You mishandle your bow and it backfires.

You're instantly knocked Helpless.

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431816

"Oh no oh no oh no"
crawl away from the wyvern and try to stand up.

Roll #1 7 = 7


I use wrath on the Wyvern.

Roll #1 3 = 3

Pone 431819

You rise up on your feet. Feeling a bit silly for knocking yourself on the floor.
You don't have the time to finish the ritual before the wyvern tries to bite you. You manage to roll out of the way, but you still feel its fang scraping at your fur.

2 Hits lost.


I heal myself.

Roll #1 5 + 2 = 7

Pone 431825

All Hits and Wound restored.

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431826

"Ah no!"
Get my bow and arrow and try to aim for the eye
Marksman shot

Roll #1 5 - 3 = 2

Pone 431833

File: 1371234343239.jpg (20.1 KB, 300x219, Vs-ashleywyvern.jpg)

You don't quite hit the eye. Instead the arrow hits a few centimeters above the intact eye and is stopped by the wyvern's skull. Now the creature has to arrows pointing out of its head.



Roll #1 7 = 7

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431838

Fire at it again.

Roll #1 6 - 3 = 3

Pone 431839

The beast is unable to attack either of you for one round.
Hitting the thick scales, your arrows do nothing. Like ze goggles.

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431840

I look at Barque
"Lets get out of here!"

Barque [Cleric] 431841

"Fine with me!"
I grab the tied up pony and run down the stairs.

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431842

File: 1371234903391.jpg (43.47 KB, 450x320, stock-photo-abandoned-warehous…)


You run past the semi-paralyzed wyvern and exit the room. As you leave the room you hear the banana bird's voice.

"I wish you the best of luck! Do not worry about me, the wall will keep the wyvern out!"

The quickest way out is of course down the stairs you used to enter the room.

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431847

I grit my teeth.
"We'll come back for you!"

With that follow the stairs down.
Is the wyvern following?

Barque [Cleric] 431848

I run down the stairs back jump over the tripwire in the hallway.

Pone 431853

File: 1371235567072.png (123.43 KB, 800x450, 800px-Buffalo_prepare_for_war_…)

Not currently, but soon it will.
You reach the bottom of the stairs, and ready yourself to head towards the hallway. You do not see the door you were looking, instead there's a large buffalo wearing similar garment that of the knocked out pony.

"Huh, so you are the intruders!" He notices the pony on Barque's back. "And where do you think you're taking him?"


"To somepony willing to buy him. Call your lizard off and free the banana bird or I'll tie you up and drag you along too."

Roll #1 2 = 2

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431863

I nod at this.

Pone 431866

So close.
"Hah, I don't think so."

He says some words, which Barque recognizes to be a renewal spell of some kind.


I smash his mouth with the head of my staff before he can finish it.

Roll #1 3 = 3

Pone 431873

Unfortunately you staff swing misses. His mouth and hits one of his horns. You fail to interrupt the spell.

Pone 431875

*swing misses his mouth and hits one of his horns

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431878

Assist Barque and shot the buffalo if its not too late
Marksman shot

Roll #1 4 = 4

Pone 431881

Your arrow misses the buffalo completely. The buffalo successfully finishes his spell.

The pony on Barque's back begins to awake.


I slam the pony's head against the wall to knock him out again.
"Your mistake, buffalo."

Roll #1 2 = 2

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431890

fire at the buffalo again

Roll #1 4 = 4

Pone 431894

Your grip slips and you simply toss the pony away from you. He's fully awake now and begins squirming so he'd be freed. The buffalo begins to unsheathe two large axes on his back.
You get too close as you try to aim properly, and the buffalo simply kick you away. 1 Hit lost.


I use wrath to toss both of them around.

Roll #1 5 = 5

DewBerry(Pegasus Stalker) 431897

Kick him!

Roll #1 5 = 5

Pone 431901

Your ritual succeeds just barely. The buffalo can't attack you so he raises one of his axes towards the ceiling and a small bolt of lightning hits it.
Somehow your hoof hits him.

"Owch. Wait for your turn, little lady."


Now I smash him right between the eye with my staff.

Roll #1 1 = 1

Pone 431909

Like you tossed away the pony, you toss away your staff. You'll automatically regain your staff next turn.

"What, you gonna play fetch now?" the buffalo asks.



Roll #1 9 = 9

Pone 431916

The buffalo is downed for one turn, but the pony was affected and protected by the buffalo's spell. He's almost free from the ropes.


I try to knock the pony out again.

Roll #1 5 = 5

Pone 431920

Waiting for lemon.

Pone 431928

Guess we are pausing now. Thanks for playing. The party is in for a marathon of combat.

Barque [Cleric] 431929

Thanks for running.
