    Now that's a lot of traps. What's it doing summoning a fiendish creature though? Perhaps another reason for the tension between Girard and Soon, hm?

    I dunno. I would rather have fiendish creatures die defending my stronghold than celestial ones. They're also unaffected by Blasphemy and Unholy Blight, spells that people up to no good might have prepared.

    The first title is "Dungeon Crawlin' Fools"; definitely still applicable. And I can't wait to see how long it's going to take V to snap out of his funk and get back with the rest of the party; I miss the whole-group dynamic.

    Yeah, but do you have to be evil-aligned to set up traps that summon fiendish creatures? Also, Belkar's not running anywhere good, and I bet this is still a false gate. Or maybe a gate-before-the-gate so that the party's exhausted and unable to fight whatever's next?

    False gate or no, it's meant to impede people going after the real gate.

    I don't think you need to be evil. The only restriction is a good aligned cleric wouldn't be allowed to cast it. Wizards have no such restrictions as far as I'm aware.

    Wouldn't have thought so- creating the trap might count as an evil act like casting the spell would (in most splatbooks)- but a character can commit evil acts without being evil-aligned.

    I'm not sure if that is a fiendish dog/wolf/dire wolf etc- with the flame-breath I think it's more likely to be a Hellhound.

    well, the summoned dog is carrying Belkar away, so I guess it is possible that V runs into him

    Wonder if the door just leads to Girard's bedroom... it wouldn't be unbelievable for the mighty wizard to want a mighty door with mighty traps for his mighty bedroom.

    I don't know this either, but I don't think the choice of summoned creature (or at least the type) was completely random.

    Yeah, because Hellhounds live in heaven. A hellhound's always evil-aligned, right?

    Pfft, I can just see this happening. Though they might stumble onto something relating to Serini there.

    I'm surprised the Hell Hound managed to survive two hits from Belkar - 22 hp should be a breeze to a PC of his level...

    Haley disarmed the one that gave it stoneskin and haste. Who's to say there weren't other enchantments on it? Or perhaps it could have summoned a powerful one.

    Do you know what would be cool? If Belkar dies here because of "mount" he always wanted...

    Did the tool really touched that other trap?

    After all, can even 9th level spells be placed in traps? And why is there 9th level right next to several weak spells?
