    Yeah - both of those are just byproducts of my old-man eyes not seeing well from the toolset and thinking there was a path down from those ledges that there turned out to not be. There's also a bug with a pitfall in one part of the dungeon Blue told me about that is a similar "Stuck" point. I got one fixed last night, but never heard of or saw the second one until now. I'll get it fixed when I get home tonight!

    Forgiver, my dude. Falling into the gap on the way TO the dungeon is AWFUL. One good change today, not requiring a jump or a portal to even enter the zone, A+. But now if you fall (even if roped, because it doesn't actually work), you get stuck in an area you can't leave without a jump or portal.

    Fun!

    After years of saying I wanted to get a telescope my wife made the "mistake" of buying me a 102 f/12.7 Orion Maksutov-Cassegrain. Love it for planetary and brighter deep-sky viewing so far.

    Of course that just made the bug worse and want to get a larger scope for viewing fainter objects.

    So I am curious what other use.

    Working telescopes (atm): old Celestron C8 SCT I purchased back in 1979, new Celestron OmniXLT 150 6" f/5 Newtonian, cheapo Meade 90mm f/8.8 refractor sniped off of eBay for $30 (these three I use on a Celestron AVX mount). Also a homebuilt 10" Dobsonian put together in 2010 and a homebuilt 6" Newtonian I made in H.S. c. 1966. Main imaging camera (atm) is a Canon 60D DSLR. The new camera is the SVBony SV305 Pro - plan to use it as a guide camera and for moon/planetary imaging.

    What telescopes do you have? And camera?

    I'll likely miss Section Six tonight. Got a new camera for my telescopes and it looks like the sky will be clear. So, I'll be outside doing astrophotography stuff.

    Oh! I will be IG as Tarok tonight instead of Sol!

    Section Six will take place at 7pm CDT (-5GMT) tonight, which is an hour later than last week.

    We will meet in the Iron Minogon. Good(ish) type characters of level SEVEN or below ! Just assume your character got a mysterious letter inviting them there !

    They receive the DC benefit from items, but not from spell foci, since alchemist gas clouds are not spells. They also don't receive the bonus from the wild magic robe specifically since gas clouds can't wild magic.

    Are alchemists' clouds affected by spell focus/GSF or items/enchants that increase spell save DCs?

Howdy!

I appreciate greatly that you have been enjoying the story thus far! I love that Thain has been reading the Garagnovel and struggling through my writing! To everyone who has read it or wishes to read it, thank you for being such a good audience!

****SPOILER WARNING****

That being said, I wish to reply to your offered criticism. I would note that, in the first instance of elf-on-gnoll violence, the combat takes place from Garagnavagh's perspective. While it may be said that a single elf is worth many gnolls, I would posit that Garagnavagh is not an entirely reliable witness. It could be that there were more gnolls or fewer elves than he perceived.

Second, in the fight between Garagnavagh and Janas, the outcome was decided by Janas's lack of wisdom as a combatant. She might have come away victorious if she had been more patient.

Finally, I would make a blanket statement that gnolls are better at everything than elves, and those knife-ears are only good for stew meat.

Thank you for reading!

I didn't have time to log in, during my vacation, but I did find some time to write.

I think, for the sake of lag and loading time, I'm going to start a new document for the Garagnovel. Yes, that means it spans three Google Documents.

I'll be sure to update the original post with a link to the new doc, as soon as part 77 is done.

Part 77 is done! I've had to start a new document for the novel, once again to aid loading speed. For your convenience, I've included a link to this new document here; the original post has also been updated with a permanent link to Volume 3.

Please feel encouraged to offer feedback on what you've read so far! If you've liked the whole story or like something in particular, I want to hear that. If there's something you dislike or would like to see done better, I want to hear that, too!

Garagnovel Vol. 3
