Updated map with your traps added. In the future I will request you don't put too many close together, simply because it is hard to label them.

Near the front entrance to the warrens, Feedka finds Krinn putting the last touches on an abjuration ritual. His eyes are closed, and he slowly waves his crystal-tipped staff about in the air, the broad sleeves of his fancy crocodile-skin robes draping from his scrawny arms. Occasionally he interrupts his deep, rhythmic breathing to murmur in a strange language that seems to roll off his tongue like water.

Krinn rouses from his trance-like state almost as though he were waking up - indeed, he has been known to fall asleep during these rituals, as the chanting and rhythmic breathing are actually quite soothing.

Finding that it is Feedka, the cultist nods his head in respect.

"Caretaker. You should be with the nursery. The young will look to you for courage during the attack." It isn't an admonishment; he is genuinely concerned for her safety - almost as much as his own, which is saying something.

Update: I am placing the traps on the map and should have that posted tonight. After that I think we can start the incursion. You can roleplay a bit before we start, or have your first conversation happen in a panic as a party trudges into your lair.

I am trying to make the encounters progressively harder, with time between to expand the lair and make new traps. Before the first fight is over, I should have a system of traps more formalized for you. I wanted to have it before we start, but it's really taxing coming with with rules for this stuff with no source to draw from.

@Dingus if you are busy, we will go on without you, but you can hop in at any time you wish.

Hey, Dingus, happy to have you back. If end of semester gets to tough don't worry about us! I'd rather hear you did well on finals than rolled a d20!

I am afraid I am not seeing the tunnels part of the background sheet you are questioning? The team is planning out their traps right now, if you have any input let them know!

I'm so so sorry for the inactivity lately guys. I got 3 week until my first year of college is done and I've been busy, pair that with my health kick and me going to the gym for two hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays I've just been exhausted. I'm recuperating now (hit 300 lbs/ 136 kg on leg press) and have just now been able to actually get on here and check threads.

I found the traps doc, created my sheet, and think I've caught up but I've missed a lot just in general lately. So first things first how does the background feature about tunnels work? Second what's this about the traps, are we still planning those out? Again apologies everyone. I will be more active here on out though.

Okay, I think I'm good now. Tonight I'll post again. Thanks for bearing with me.

We could shuffle the traps around a little and try and cram as many as possible into the hallway between the first and second rooms.

As for the crossbow trap I was only thinking of placeing one, I just wasn't sure how big the pillars/rocks whatever are

No worries, boss! We're still very much in the planning phase. ^___^

Regarding the traps, sounds like we have a good plan already. I was thinking that we should try to bottle them up somewhere where we can all shoot at them, and/or use the oil to set a fire.

What if, for example, we had portcullis traps at K37 and N37 that dropped at the same time, trapping a couple heroes in there? That would allow us to fire at them from the sleeping chamber while they try to get out.

Separating the heroes might be a good way of dealing with them. It's how kobolds think, too: they we like to attack only when we outnumber the enemy.

Krinn can also set Alarm spells as a ritual, so that we know how far intruders have passed into the warrens. I figure casting one at each hallway/choke point would make sense.

I'm not abandoning this game, I swear, but my daughter has been running a fever and my wife is trying to pin down a nausea issue. I've been playing Doctor and nurse since Saturday morning, and will post when I can.
