Here’s a thread to discuss the Expedition to Lost Knife Hideout (working title, lol).

Our characters are presently gathered in the Wobbly Goblet Playground thread. Recruitment is in progress. smile.gif

Here's where we are going: Link to wiki

People that are going:
Kayla (Elisabeth)
Vera (DE)
Darnand (Grits)
Salyan (Mustard)
Aravi (me)

Look at Darnand surrounded by the ladies.

What we are doing: Filling soul gems. I know this says its a bandit hideout, but we'll put some creatures in there too. Maybe Falmer?

As Elisabeth mentioned in the previous thread, this is getting a little crowded. While I don't want to turn anybody away, any more people will make the adventure more difficult to keep organized.

We can possibly split into two groups when we get to the cave, so each group can post independently of the other. We'll pretend there is a fork in the path or something if we want to do that.

Thoughts?

Sounds great! I went through there recently and there are some very interesting spots. Falmer overrunning a bandit hideout (just a further thought) would be a good way to get crafty opponents with trapable souls in there (Arkay must hate the Falmer), and those chaurus pets are not easy. Plus they always seem to have a few spiders… tongue.gif

What's wrong with spiders? All those extra legs are great for cuddling, don'cha know? tongue.gif

I do think Falmer would be fun to have along. I even had a few ideas for different Chaurus subspecies that Uleni and I were going to unleash upon the players in the old Fort Sutch RP that we could use in this, if we're having Falmer as enemies.

Some different Chaurus subspecies would be interesting.

Chaurus types thought up were:

Chaurus Trapper: A subspecies of Chaurus, Trappers are deadly predators that hunt as stealthily as possible, using ambushes to pick off their prey. Unlike other Chaurus, Charus Trappers do not spit poison; instead, they launch a sticky, weblike substance from their mouths, able to entangle even the most agile adventurer with ease, and use that to drag their hapless victim towards them. With their limbs ensnared by such a web and no means to fight back, such victims are easy prey for the Chaurus Trapper's fearsome mandibles.

Chaurus Queen: Just imagine a really big, really mean, really scary Chaurus. And then have it being ridden by a Falmer Warmonger. Voila, instant miniboss.



Also, another idea I had for Sutch was:

Cavern Ghasts: Resembling oversized, blind and hairless bats with pale grey, almost transluscent skin, Cavern Ghasts are human-sized predators who hunt in the larger caverns beneath Nirn. They are able to cling to walls and ceilings with their claws, and can glide short distances, and their slimy skin is hard to grip. While they have sharp talons and curved horns that are more than capable of goring an opponent, their most fearsome weapons are the barbed, poisonous stingers on the end of their prehensile tails, which can be a deadly surprise for an enemy who is unaware of it. They usually either swarm enemies or attack from ambush by dropping from cave ceilings, picking off individuals, and are particularly averse to fire.


Not sure if the Cavern Ghasts would necessarily be wanted, but they could be a fun enemy to drop into the mix, and Lost Knife Hideout has big enough chamber to justify the presence of a few.

Sounds great! Dangerous enough so that some random guy with a sword can't just stroll in and clean them up, but still reasonable to expect a group to have a chance against them. The Trapper especially has fun possibilities.

Both of those creatures look good Mustard. We should definitely put some of them in. smile.gif


I also want everyone to know there is a pretty big surprise planned for the end. It isn't going to be dangerous for your characters. I just want you all to know something is coming so it isn't a total WTF moment.

Do we want to start right outside the cave, or at a camp the night before going in?

Yeah, I had absolutely nothing else useful to add to this thread. Though camping outside would be good.

Ha!

There's quite a bit of estrogen in the party, so Kayla will probably stick by Darnand, as she doesn't get along with women. Especially Vera.

Camp! smile.gif

Got to run, back tonight.

Please talk around Darnand in the main thread while I'm gone, meaning don't wait for me to post until later. He would pretty much just listen to the plan and nod encouragingly in spots as he's been told to do when talking to women. smile.gif

The feeling is mutual. Sort of.
