    I mean I'd rather roll it and have it not count, than not roll it when I actually need to.

    Dreaming: I'm bluffing by calling his bluff. I don't know if it actually is though. Also, like I said above, made the roll just to be safe.

    That would be rolling a Sense Motive, not a Bluff. However, I'll let you keep the natural 1 in this case if you want to.

    I know I can't use this information IC (metagaming and all that), how quickly does pale fire expand when it is weaponized? Is it like regular gas explosions, or is it like that gas from Wise Men's Fear?

    It would be closer to a regular gas explosion, expanding within 6 seconds to engulf the vicinity. I obviously can't tell you the range of the explosion, but I will say that Soryn sees that there is at least a few litres of pale fire at the bottom of the barrel (probably about 1/3 of the container).

    You know, if Soryn took the shot exactly at the light, and Ambrose dropped it at the same time (ie in response), they'd both fall the same distance, and the arrow would hit the light mid-drop. Woot gravitic mechanics!

    This. Also, that would be trying to hit an object mid-fall (which would be quite difficult). It will be quite hard for Soryn to get out of this through brute force alone.

    So 3sec, do you play munchkin? I was wondering if that is why people confuse me with a halfling all the time.

    Also, Ajadea, could you make a bardic knowledge check (Arch&Eng I think would be the one) to guess what kind of weight we can expect the bridge to hold, and anything else really that would come up from a hopefully high roll!

    I do indeed play Munchkin. DreamingMage can confirm this: the first two or three times we played against each other, I beat him via divine intervention.

    I also don't know why I keep confusing Ben for a halfling, I just get the two races mixed up together in my mind sometimes. Sorry about that, I'll make sure to remember that he is a gnome in the future.

    What I was saying is that it isn't really that difficult to shoot something mid-fall. If you aim at his hand, and assume that he will drop the thing as soon as he sees the arrow fly, the distance the arrow will drop from its trajectory will be the same as the distance dropped by the thing. Gravitational acceleration is a constant for all things, remember: always 9.8m/s^2.

    Also, does this stone bridge have handrails already? If so, are they solid, cracked, or in any way appear weakened or difficult to balance upon? I am envisioning something like this kind of bridge

    Thanks, that's much better.

    The bridge looks like it used to have handrails, but now it looks closer to this picture of Khazad-Dum. You didn't think I was going to make it easy, did you?

    Also, that was quite brilliant of you to send the cat across, DreamingMage.

    Well, I believe that there are a few lurkers on the IC thread, given that it has an inordinately high amount of views (higher than the OOC, which is usually not at all the case), but it's good to see confirmation of their presence once in a while. How are you doing, Wombat? We haven't spoken in some time.

    I'm excellent. I'm subbed to both, as it were. I'm enjoying the story.

    I never commented on the OOC before, because I was afraid to. Now I kinda feel I've been being creepy the last few months...

    Its cool, there may be a need of someone who knows the story at some point. Plus its kind of an honor to be so popular.

    Anyway, I didnt think you would make it easy, but I was hoping for something more cartwheel-over-able
