    we'll go together, and Rocky can carry us over the snake pit since he is immune to poison.

    Rocky has been to the west, large room with the pit, but no one else has since the battle ended.

    I'm fine with you searching with detect magic, just let me know how you're doing it: all together, just Vort, Vort + Rocky, etc.

    The only room you can't get to is the Harp room beyond the snake pit without some kind of plan.

    Sorry, my son just came home from school on quarantine since he's been in direct contact at school that is COVID positive. That's a fun call to get. As my wife put it best when the principal called 'please tell me he dropped the F-bomb'. No, he didn't...

    On Monday, his school had his first test, and now he's home. We're getting info, but it sounds like's home for 14 days.

    Fun times.

    That's how we deal with it at the university. That's why my workload is heavier than normal. Students that are exposed to covid or test positive get 2 weeks off and then I have to plan make up work for not being in class. We're socially distance so classes of 40-50 are now classes 12-16. My class attendance ranges from 0-8 in any given class on any given day. That's why I'm going back to teaching all online in the spring. Online students don't receive make-up days.

    DM, Vort had searched the altar room with his detect magic going, wouldn't he have seen the potions and scrolls before they were destroyed?

    This is the post that I found. It wasn't specific on the room.


    Vort prays for Detect Magic and begins the search around the area for items of magic and possible threats--with Rocky protecting him.

    perception - (1d20+10) (8) [18]

    I later clarified that the only rooms that you had been in were the room you killed the Queen and the prisoner room since there were possibly enemies still around. Unless I missed something about you going into the altar room, I didn't see it. That's why I processed it as I did.

    If you can find something else about entering the altar room, I'll reprocess this.

    I had thought the room with the Queen had been in was the same room with the altar, and thats the room I wanted to check, not the one we were in since there was nothing in there anyways--I guess I wasn't clear on that, oh well.

    I think we can begin a search of the complex.

    As for the weight of the statue, since it's only a halfling (which is 40ish lb normally), the statue would be about 150 lb in stone form. So two of you could carry it. It's a mile to surface, uphill.

    I remember weight training for things like this when I was younger. I won't stop you from doing it, but I can assure you that this is something that you'd only consider in an online fictional game. I think things like this lead to the invention of the wheel and cart.

    If you're having Rocky destroy the place, he'll be gone in an hour. So you're limited by the search time.

    My questions:
    1 are you gathering the scattered coins in the altar room? This will take about 5 minutes.
    2 are you investigating the giant hole? The amount of time here would be dependent on how thorough you search. Kalthanar wouldn't be an option given his dread. The minimum time here would be 10 minutes. This would involve an arcana and investigation roll. You could advantage if 2people examine it.
    3 are you investigating the cocoons? This is 10 minutes and an investigation/arcana check.
    4 each room doing a thorough sweep would be 10 minutes. The altar room is 20 minutes due to its size. Perception roll.
    5 are you investigating to the underdark?
    6 are crossing the pit with Rocky as suggested and searching the harp room? If so, 10 min and perception roll.
    7 the pit itself would be very challenging/time consuming to search and wouldn't be achievable in the 1 hour window without some creativity since it's presently full of hundreds, possibly thousands of snakes.

    Once you come up with a plan and make the rolls, I'll advance you. Keep in mind you don't have to have Rocky collapse the whole place if you want more than an hour. That was just what was proposed.

    Here is how I see it. Have Rocky hold off. I honestly am not sure he could destroy the complex anyway. Stay away from the pits and the underdark.

    1. Yes
    2. No
    3. Yes
    4. Yes
    5. No
    6, Yes
    7. Yes

    I'm going to process it with the rolls that I have to get things moving. 2 separate rolls is essentially one roll with help, so we'll go with what's here.

    You can get a few questions. Per Wenser he was a guard that was ambushed, so keep in mind what he might or might now know.

    You can discuss OOC what to ask if you want. After a little bit of time, I'll roll another con save. So you don't know how much time you have.

    that pit we found, that gave off dread, where was it at? Was it at the nuitari stone burial site? I don't remember it being there, but nearby.

    There is a large pit in the room with you (which was not there before). The other was near where you buried the Nuitari stone. The one that gave off dread was the other one, although Kalthanar is still reluctant to look at this one, so you can surmise that they are somehow related.
