This doesn't improve things... But makes it worse in my opinion... It's like you going "oh it was discord, wait, no it wasn't discord, lol, you thought it was discord." when the only one laughing is you & everyone groaned at the first gag and groaned HARDER AT THE SECOND.

Then im sorry as I felt that was the only thing I could say without spoiling anything or revealing just why I had it be discord or just why he showed you that form.
Doing that reduces the impact on the characters and thus the effect is ruined.......or at least that is what I thought.
I apologise for letting you all down.

Nah, it's just Xel. This forum can be a vocal lot if we're displeased.

Yeah... And I think the topic of Discord is an easy one to be played wrong in my opinion... So don't feel too bad. It likely was just a minor err that might get explained better or something. It was only one player who has voiced there dislike of the discord revival and even greater dislike of the implying that it's not really discord. Just seems like a bit of a pointless cameo if that's the case. From a purely OOC viewpoint. IC it weird and crazy as fuck, but Discord popping up makes things starting to feel more sane than insane.

Er... Sorry for not replying yet, guys. I figure I should let my 'brother' wake up first, before being all "What are you doing, I'm the boss here, you guys should be listening to me!"

As for Discord, I don't mind. Oddly enough, this makes my third campaign involving him, but hey- John deLancie is too awesome to be confined to just one campaign. If I was going to complain, I'd just say that the set-up of a draconequis on a train was suggested in the PH guide, so I didn't find it a huge surprise...

But of course, it's all about execution, and I'm curious to see what's through the door... not to mention the kind of implied mystery that something bad has/had happened to the element bearers.

You can yell at us while you're going through the door, darnit. Razz

But yeah, I think it was executed fairly well.

Even I'll agree that you did honestly play it off well... Just... I didn't like the twist is all.

So... I'm picturing Scales acting like Raindrops.

Just letting you guys know that her suggestion for question 3 is [cccc00]"If you start smashing statues in a cave, how long until they give me a straight answer?"[/color]

Three statue's,  two doors.

Also since i can see your struggling with this, i will allow the use of skill checks for clues, perception history ect (though you could have done this in the first place)

you are also pretty sure that it started when the statues started counting
Ok, just to be clear... The statures are NOT moving to try and fight us? But a countdown has started? So far the only one who could hear what the countdown is linked to some stone grinding against stone sound?

Your not sure, the statues are prowling around you, yes, but they only started when shadow threatened them and even then there not doing much apart from counting the countdown. (current:30 seconds left)

Yeah. As no one's giving me an explanation as to this 'third door', I find no reason to believe it exists. In character or out of character.

OOC, I don't really believe it exists. IC, it's mostly because Shadow figured since they're either cheating or incompetent at the Knight and Knave thing, there's an alternate option. That said, she's less than willing to argue the point if there doesn't seem to be an obvious deathtrap in the next room.

Oh right. Well that way Storm see's it. They have no idea that which door is better because someone wasted all three questions. So, just chose one at random and go at it. Good thing he did, because if they had waited, they would of ran out of time

I still say the trick was going backwards... I mean there ARE three doors... The two forward... And one we entered in. DUH! The true answer was to go backwards and that'd have sent us to the best place... Now we had chosen wrong and will be punished for it... And my character is SO GOING TO HOGTIE YOURS GOOD!

That's antilogic at best, Xel. And asking "Which would the others say" is the answer to the knights and knaves thing. Assuming the people asking aren't more interested in killing you than actually posing a challenge.

That only works if there's two of them. Introducing the third element changes things up.

True, the actual answer for this variant is to ask the first two statue's "would you answer false to this question? " the one who tells the truth wouldn't be able to answer, as it would cause them to lie.
Therefore of the first two answer you ask the third one your true question eg "which path is safe"

will post sometime later today when I have time.

That makes sense. Which I had thought of that, I couldn't think of a way round it. I just know that the traditional knight and knaves wouldn't work. Its Knight/Knave/Spy, and you need to identify who is who in two questions.
