Good thing Gricks don't know what swords are.

Too little too late, though!

I don't remember Ozzy having a sword. If that is the blade from earlier & he was able to grab it, then that cave is really shallow.

Or he is that good of a thief rouge that he is able to take things from a distance.

He's always had one; and now he has two

Given Randulf's first First Rule, I was assuming the sword in the stone was actually a mimic.

The Gricks may not be Ozzi's worst problem any more as of now...
Inter-party-fire is about to hit in 3 ('cause yeah I wouldn't call that 'friendly' fire).

And I bet once they survived that fight somehow they will argue who gets to keep that sword.

Well obviously the archer should have it :P
Worstcase 8th Jul 2018, 11:03 AM edit delete reply
Maybe then he finally does some damage in a battle.

But don't tell me their archer went in there without any melee weapon - that would simply be stupid.

Are cursed blades you cannot let go of a thing here?
Rudofaux 5th Jul 2018, 11:52 PM edit delete reply
Rudofaux
I always thought that the "not let go" was like a deep attachment like a greaser to a motorcycle, not in a literal "can't open my hand, it's like some sort of glue."

Interesting way to look at it. In the D&D-based games I've played, it has been variously described as "no matter how hard you try, you can't seem to let go of the weapon", and "as you pick it up, it welds itself to your hand!", and "you can't drop it, it appears to have welded itself to your hand!". One game even went as far as making it impossible to take things out of your backpack (or put things into it, or pick up stuff from the floor, etc.) after you wielded a cursed 2-handed weapon. (Yes, it was very cruel, since you were functionally crippled until you could find a way to uncurse the weapon. But it also drove home the point that no, you really do NOT want to be messing around with cursed items, and that no, picking up random objects from the dungeon without knowing whether or not they are cursed is generally NOT a good idea.)

Never thought of it as a mental addiction/possession that forces you to never let it go.

I've actually done both in our D&D games; both lead to very different but equally interesting reactions from the player

Lurker, real food for thought there.

Looks like a pretty good sword, if it can overcome that beefy damage reduction.

It must be the craftsmanship.

Gricks don't have damage reduction, do they?
yetanotherguy 6th Jul 2018, 11:39 PM edit delete reply
Depends on the edition and version:
- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grick
- 3rd edition D&D: http://www.d20srd.org/srd/monsters/grick.htm
- 5th edition D&D: http://5e.d20srd.org/srd/monsters/grick.htm

In 3rd edition they do have damage reduction except against magic. In 5th edition, they instead have resistance against non-magical weapons.

I hit 100 a while ago, but randomly I lost a bunch in one day and dropped below 100

I just realized gricks are basically rocktopuses. Coincidence? I think not.

Actually someone else probably already pointed it out and I just missed it.

I DO have an affinity for cephalopods

Lets hope Ozzy has taken evasion as a feat.

No one has really said anything about the glowing butterfly looking things. I have a feeling they might be important.

I heard that they make you recover 20 PP when you touch them

Is... is that an Earthbound reference? That seems like a pretty deep cut these days.

I've obviously read too much dungeon Meshi: all I can think of now is that they should take the Grick tentacles, roll them in breading and saute them with garlic...

You should've seen the roasted Froblins legs earlier.

I should really get around to reading that one; it's basically Marblegate but with food
