@Gathers- probably not Kin's style but it may be faster just to slam the chest open on the rock there. Brutal efficiency and all. If it was breakable it would have probably already broken. Either that or just run it back to our lock pick expert and not waste your time trying.

I think we can probably just ignore the crazy guy. He is just going to get himself killed by something.

So quick question as i examined the mushroom. Does the glue come from one single spot and can be easily plugged or covered.
And new idea could we just crawl under the cap without setting off the goo?

The glue is excreted from the mushroom cap, but also seems to ooze from where the mushrooms have been damaged. You guys have made an enormous mess though and pretty much everything is covered in some amount of glue now.

sigh... I see two options then as it sounds like it will take ages to cut through even that last post....
1. Temporarily cover them with something.
2. Try and pull them up...As ooc real life knowledge suggest mushroom have really short roots.

Actually given my digging proficiency and my masonry skills would i know how deep a mushroom roots could go in this type of rock and how easy to chisel it up and out compared to cutting through it?

No, because you don't know anything about the mushrooms really. You'd guess that the rock would require a pickaxe to get through though, and that you'd probably better not dig TOO deep in case you cause a cave-in.

In completely OOC news, I really didn't expect these mushrooms to cause you guys this much trouble...

How quickly/ much are the vines twitching? I kind of imagined them stuck to the wall so didn't move much.

OK my pm to narshe has sat in my outbox for 4 days now so I'm guessing he's not around any more. Does anyone else want to take the spot?

Hey all...
I've asked Thinks for a small "catch up" as I was more behind than I thought...

Is there anything you think I should know about treasure?
I'll try and keep him basically the same character

Welcome to this crazed group of goblins.

Off top of my head Treasure seems to turning slightly magey with illusions and such. Which he can do so many times a day for a few rounds check out his character sheet if not already (Thinks Player stats area).

Other than that quite hard to explain. As soon a write finishes their dream we should hopefully be exploring the mine, If we survive the many dangers. Jack and his plants to the east (and in the mine), these "bird things" that are arriving soon and anything else that arrives at the island.

Mushrooms squirt glues - use a wooden plank piece at the mine entrance for protection. Maybe drench in water which is in the barrel for extra anti-cohesion.
Always say to dodge drooping vines if heading east.

Hey LAYF! So the overall premise is:

1. You guys were slaves on a ship that wrecked on an island where a mystical treasure was rumoured to have been found deep within a mine. Through a series of nighttime visions, Writes (your Teller) has been told by a mysterious messenger of Maglubiyet that it is very important that you lot recover the treasure. Glory to Arstotzka Maglubiyet! So far, you've built fortifications at the base of the cliff near the beach, which you were ultimately forced to abandon as the enemies got stronger and you've fallen back to a more defensible and fortified location at the mine entrance itself. That's where you are at the moment.

2. Each of you have now encountered (and completed) a Dream Stone Quest. These were themed around: the "Warrior", "Farmer", "Mage", "Mother", "Builder" and "Assassin". These stones were once created to honour Maglubiyet, but the magic in them got corrupted. Successfully completing the dream quests at each stone cleansed the magic and granted the successful goblin a unique set of skills. Completing them all opened Write's path through a Dream Temple, and she's doing that now using the powers the others gained to help her out. No-one knows what will happen when she completes her quest, but the Messenger has promised Good Things.

Treasure completed the "Mage Stone" and chose the Illusion path. Obsidian Portal (where we keep the stats) is currently down, but when it comes back you should be able to see Treasure's "character sheet" and the skills / stuff he has.

3. Every day (20 turns), a new group comes to the Island. Some of them are looking for the Treasure themselves, some of them just happen on the Island. Most of them are not your friends. Today, a circle of creepy birds with a big red one in the middle have been flying over the island in perfect formation. Only Shackled has seen them so far but he's has a bad feeling from them, and you can both hear them squawking to the south. They will arrive at your mine camp very soon.

4. Unfortunately, that's not all. In the Forests, a vile humanoid plant-man called Jack is aggressively trying to cleanse the island of intruders. He has caused you guys some trouble in the past, but the group have been able to join forces with some intruders to fight off some of his larger creatures. Happily, Jack is currently recovering from a Maglubiyet-delivered batch of poisoning that hurt him badly enough to buy you some peace for the last 2-3 days. It was Write's last prayer action before heading into the dream, and since she's the only one who gets their prayers answered, you've been on your own since she left. You know Jack's not dead and very p*ssed off though, and may be gathering his army again (there were drums beating in the forest this morning).

5. Otherwise, you can also do whatever crafting takes your fancy (although you can get reasonable loot just from corpses), and new, useful things sometimes wash up as flotsam if you check the beaches each day. I think you've been more or less forced back over the course of the game though. Oh! And you each have teleportation ("camper") stones that will personally teleport you from any outdoor location back to wherever the main ("camp") stone is. It's currently at your mine-entrance camp, and only works for one person at a time. Also, you can't use it to teleport large items around the place.

I think that more or less covers us. If there's anything else you want answers to just ask and I'll point you in the right direction :) I might let the players answer your questions on game lore though cos I don't want to accidentally spoil anything!
