Everyone Loves Dumbwaiters
"I'm Reginald the Astronomer. Who are you?! Oof. I'm from here. I live here. That's my jungle house you're breaking into. I'm the Watchman. The Custodian. The Astronomer. Yeah I'm the last guy on earth. Or I was until you showed up. Everyone else died or left. Yeah, that's right, they left. Split. Vaminos
? Sprechen zie Deustch
? This is just great, it's sort of like 2001 in reverse."
"Ouch, quit punching me. No I don't have any gas... sorry folks, it's all green energy here. You're from the Gorgos Institute? Uh, really? Okay hotshot, what's your number?"
"Fine, fine. I'll tell you all about what happened. Here. Here you go.
Watch and learn the sad truth." Reginald moves away from the mic.
You explore the rest of the jungle bungalow. Theodore, behind the poster you find a black metal wall safe. You go up the dumbwaiter and arrive in Reginald's kitchen. Nothing exciting about the dumbwaiter. Just a couple locked doors you haven't been through yet.

"Who are you? Where are you from? We were stranded here when we ran out of gas. Do you have any petrol? Why do you think you are the last man on Earth? Where are we in relationship to the Gorgos Meteorological Institute?"
I get Reggie some water and food.... I'm not in to torture or anything... I just want some answers.
Labels: yes... it IS the spanish inquisition
Nice, I enjoy a meal.
I then search the place. d6:1. -Awesome.
I then want to go up that dumbwaiter.
Reginald's Short, Sweet Monologue
The radiant leopard made 100 gp on the Cash Cab.
Unfortunately, the cab driver got some cancer.
Okay, you guys take Reginald's stuff, tie him up, and wake him up. He's pretty pissed. "Not this again! Where'd you guys come from anyway? I'm the Last Man on Earth!"
Anyway, you leave Reginald outside and enter his home. "Hey, you can't do that! I live there!" You enter a nice living room- large sliding glass door. Ooh... refreshing. He's got the AC on. It's a balmy 70 degrees, maybe 65?
There's some food, some wine, some clothes, and some other stuff. In a large bedroom, there's a huge poster of a bunch of dudes all dressed up.

Ooh, dibs on the Star Wand!
Now I can do the classic Bone and Star wand combo.
Ok, are there stairs, or just the dumbwaiter going up? How many people can get in it?
After Dag interrogates Reg, I want to cross the bridge to the Treetop house. -With everyone.
Anyone need a CLW? If so, Rob, I throw down some healing before I do the following:
Dibbs on the 8-50 key card and the Visa card.
I take the robes off him, but I don't want them, one of the other mage/illusionists in the party would be more suited for them I think. I pile all the other stuff up on the floor away from him. I tie him up and gag him.
Once we're healed up, and he's good and secure, with Theo at his back with a knife, I slap him awake.
I hoep Radiant Leopard was lucky enough to get into THE CASH CAB!
"For $25, what is the capital of Botswana?""Rawr"
"ooo...I'm sorry, the answer is actually Gabarone, that's one strike. Next, oh! what? look, we're stopped at a red light, it's time for a RED-LIGHT-CHALLENGE!!! Name five soap operas currently on television... You have 60 seconds.. GO!"rawr"
"...15 seconds... and time's up. I'm sorry, but neither of those answers are correct. That's strike Two. Now, for $50, which president of the United States was the first to put solar panels on the white house?""How the fuck should I know? I'm a Leopard. And incidently I knew the capital of Botswana, ass-monkey... you just dont't understand Leopard. Now get me back to the fucking hotel. I may still be able to catch up with Paris later. Damn adventurers think they can drag me out any time of the day or night. What the fuck?!"

Wow, okay, you subdue Reginald. Actually you knock him unconscious which amounts to the same thing. The darkness goes away. The radiant leopard gets a cab back home.
In case you're wondering, Reginald has some robes (if you really want to take a dude's clothes off), a Star Wand, a Star Ring, and a Star Badge. It looks sort of like a sheriff's badge.
He also has a bag of 100 strange metal coins, a Visa card, and a another key card with the numbers 8-50
written on it.
Labels: who broke my blog- you did you did
Yes, yes, yes!
I stab wildly at Reggy in the dark.
Labels: I am but a bone wand and a knife.
Another attack to subdue this guy.
BR 13 for 4 subdual damage.
Labels: shoot that acid arrow, Shoot that acid arrow through my heaeaeart
Summon RADIANT LEOPARD!!!
C: BR 19 for 6
C: BR 12 for 4
B: BR 10 for 2
(if both claws hit, Reggie takes an additional 3 from the leopard's rake attack. But no dice on getting cancer. BR 17% is close, but it's no 1%.)
"I tried to be diplomatic Reggie, but you wouldn't have it..."
