    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.

    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.

    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?

What to expect in a [DM] Nexus plot?

To lay it out simply. There are many different play styles! I would prize myself to being able to adapt to most of them. But there are some critical details if you hope to become part of my plots and stories! I would like to take the time to let you know, what that is, so you know what to expect and how to get involved!

I treat my stories with immersion. Real fear, real challenges, and real outcomes. Be them horrible or very pleasant. Not an MMO that you can solve with a mechanical formula to maximize the best DPS, thoughtless quests of picking up objective B and delivering to objective C. Or even by reading a monster manual and pretending you know exactly what’s going to happen.

I can tell you now. This mentality will push you from my interests to involving you to the potential of what I seek in protagonists in my stories!

Not everything is going to be obvious in my stories. You will not find the answers to the story on the first page. Those partaking in my stories that ever get anywhere, are the ones searching for information. Not battling that impossible creature I left in the open for you to ram your head against over and over. It won’t matter how strong you think you are. You will always lose this way. And never find pleasant results.

That is not always the case.

Sometimes there are battles that must be faced. But they are often clear and directed with a clear objective as to why. Sometimes, another may have the information you need to progress. If they are unlikely to share. Be creative, and find a means to find out.

With that said, I am not the soul driver of these stories. Its as much as mine as it is yours. And your actions can and do change the outcome.

Another topic of interest I'll bring to surface. Be serious. Imagine yourself in your characters shoes. Would you run into a graveyard that is clearly corrupted and restless with a small army of undead? Alone? With one guy? With no idea what's going on?

Find answers! Maybe you need to visit the temple. The Lord. The captain. A passing wayfarer! Don't assume.

I’ll leave this thread open, if anyone has questions or concerns! Because I want a pleasant experience for you and myself! Especially with what's coming in my plot.

Thanks everyone!

PS: I would like to point out a common situation and question. Why don't I ever get DM interaction?
Answer: The players getting my own attentions? Are the ones creating adventure. Even when they are alone. They may be roleplaying with their horse. Plotting something. Doing something beyond sitting at a campfire, waiting for something to happen! Make something happen and maybe see unexpected results!
