:ooc: Did we pack light sources? I don't mind a little meta, but I do not think we ever said anything about travel gear beyond the norm. If Paul is cool with it, I can try a Craft test to try and kindle a torch - but first, Esgalwen does this for this round...

With her Old Lore trait, Esgalwen is going to try and Inspire Radagast with words of Elbereth. I am not sure if she can attack, too, but I am going to give you narrative and then a post with both rolls.


"Radagast! We need you beyond all hope to permeate this darkness with your own spells! The blessings of Varda be upon you that she might delve even this terrible gloom with the Light of Eärendil!"

:ooc: Well her Inspire roll is a failure, but not an :~~: .

Her bow shot... well that is a nice :g: success for 7 :<3:.

I like how the Feat die is landing (sort of :| ), but it would be great to see a :%: in there sometimes.


Even as the Ranger's cry is weakly heard throughout the chamber, draped so in Tylquin's gloom, Esgalwen keeps her ears keen to where the whispered spell emanated and trained her bow in its direction. The twang and whoosh of the arrow in flight ended in a satisfactory sound of striking her target.

"FEEL MY STING, BEAST!" she challenged.

 :ooc: I brought this up before we set out about have available common items that it would make sense to pack or bring along. I think I specifically brought up water and light stuff, but I will have to look.

 :ooc: What should I do if I want to see if I can make it to another strand in the dark and attack it?  Adobe isn't being friendly right now.

Eclecticon

:ooc: Whether or not you specifically mentioned bringing torches along, I'll assume you have some - the Fellowship aren't neophytes and they'll have an idea of what might be needed in a very dark place worth lots of webs to burn.

Matt, you can go ahead and roll an attack as usual - Grimbeorn has an idea still of where the web stands are and, unlike Tylquin, they aren't moving around.  The TN is still 22,though.

:ooc: For story reasons, I'm not going to trouble myself with anything mechanical stemming from Esgalwen's failed Inspire roll.  Her rather fortuitous shot in the dark, though, requires a Protection roll (TN 16) from Tylquin:

:00: 1d12 : 6, total 6
Rolled 3d6+9 : 3, 3, 3 + 9, total 18

:ooc: Okay - since this'll make the scene a little more interesting I'll say that spending Hope to make it a success will at least get you a response (so you know where he is) but you'll need a Song or Healing roll (TN 18) to get him back on his feet.

:ooc: A Craft roll would be appropriate. Given the circumstances, I'd also accept Riddle (or, frankly, anything else you can make a sufficient case for - the rules don't really contemplate this sort of problem).

I'm cooking dinner at the moment and don't have access to the character sheets, or I'd roll for you.

 :ooc: my thoughts. I am going to roll Explore. The skill description says that it allows for the reaction to natural obstacles. So I am seeing darkness itself as a naturally occurring obstacle. I dont think crafting works because I'm not making torches I'm only using something already prepared in the manner it was intended.

Your roll is a success, by the way.
