This thread continues the ongoing saga.
For those new/unfamiliar, this particular Game is based on Dungeons and Dragons 3.5ed core rules with more references and add-ons than you can shake the random stick at, and further additions are available upon request.
New players are ALWAYS welcome, but please don't be a faggot (lit or fig).

About 18' tall, and about 30' long.
Also, she's squatted in the middle of a ridiculous pile of opulence. Piles of gold and gems litter the room, atop one pile of which is a very large and heavily bound book. Atop another pile is a glittering scroll, which Thez is immediately transfixed by.
"It... it is! I had... I thought,...." she begins to stammer.

"Looks like we're not getting her shields down. Not at our current power levels, at least not with out Tourcil, though I'm not sure he could have made a difference. We need to set up shop in Port Barry before we return. But there may still be another way to reveal the secrets of the past. Not every link is in the form of an inanimate paper bundle.

There are literally no other options available to us, unless your stealth is so good you can pierce shields to steal the book and the scroll. I recommend getting Thez drunk at a bar in Port Barry and seeing if she'll give us most of the information we wanted out of the book. But to do that, we need Thez to leave alive.

Nice gets, I was hoping to steal that myself, but oh well.
Thez, smouldering from several lightning bolts slumps in defeat. "Its come to this then has it? Very well. I'm not leaving without my contract."
She checks to see that the party is sufficiently out of range before addressing the queen.
"So you know the Dictum. Good for you, but there is something you DON'T know. Let me tell you!" She is veritably steaming energy and rage.
"Starlight Glimmer is best Pone!"
As Thez speaks these words, the party (just out of range, thankfully) is spared from the blackness that fills the room.
The blackness is a mix of undeath and perversion. It is a tangible madness mixed with suffering and rage. The whole gamut of negative and dissociative energies, the lot of which eliminates the Queen with a resounding <sphleugh>.

"You needn't hurry. The building is now ours again, including the spoils (which were ours to begin with, but game resets and all). From here, we can go wherever we need/want. And I, I can fire up the forge!" Lenos says with a wink.
And THAT concludes the session.
The party now has access to literal piles of gold and gems, a variety of strewn about items, not to mention an entire facility (you thought the pyramid was big!) with elements that were not include-able in the upper section.
Yeah, I'll tell you all about it, but Tracy needs to sleep (and so do I). Besides, this thread is well past bump-limit.

Oh there's LOTS. Don't feel bad about not being able to play, though technically it is your fault Thez had to speak Blasphemy, as a well placed "Dispel Magic" would have removed the Queen's shield and allowed the party to gang-rape-kill her. No worries though, a wall of force does not block sonic attacks, and like I indicated, Thez wasn't going to leave without her record contract.
The contract doesn't do anything mind you, but it represents her most glowing achievement in the last reset, where she rolled a 20 on her performance check (which, when added to her perform ability, acrobatics, magical embellishments, and such came out to like a 48). It is because of that contract and performance that a good 1/3 of the piles of riches are even there.
Now for some clarification and explanation.
Thez does not think Starlight Glimmer is best pone, but in the infernal realms (where Blasphemy was first molded and crafted), the general perception is that she is. There are entire levels in the Abyss dedicated to Starlight Glimmer, so while Thez doesn't care either way, she does know Blasphemy (and has the infernal nature to make it work).
The teleport lock on the treasury didn't actually belong to the Queen, it is more of a security measure to make sure that no one poofs in and starts jacking shit. Now that the treasury is reclaimed, one can readily go to and from with ease. Atop the treasury up a winding staircase is an expansive fighting ring, designed to train, practice, spar, and whatever. There are holodeck proportions to it so players can practices spells, techniques, strategy, etc. on pseudo-enemies, but usually players use this area to beat eachother about the face and torso.
Down a similar set of stairs from the Treasury, the ordinarily somewhat translucent glass of the tower blackens and takes on a matte-texture. This leads to the Forge (which, btw, is where Lenos is). FOr the record, forging shit is Lenos' favorite thing, and the one thing that he (with exception) will do essentially for free just cuz.
The outside of the building is enspelled to allow one to walk across its surface as though wearing gravity boots or some shit,... just don't jump.
And, because the guy who designed the building - brilliant though he was - was a little off in the head, there is no actual door connecting the upper level and the lower level, one instead has to walk outside the door in the middle (formerly the section of tunnel that connected to the ant hive) and up to the pinnacle where the dais is. The dais was originally the magic user section of the building.
Don't worry, I'm gonna do up the associated maps.
And SPEAKING of maps, since the building is flying now, I'm also going to finish the world map. The building isn't THAT fast, but it allows you to be at Port Barry, or that place to the south, or any adjacent area in a matter of minutes (as opposed to hours by foot, or a half hour by mount).

The treasury consists of about 30,000 ounces of gold and assorted other precious metals (platinum, silver, copper, bronze, brass, titanium, adamantite, cold iron, etc. etc.), including some golden-steel (sourced from a particular type of enemy that I can personally guarantee will show up at some point) that appears to be giant armor (not of a giant mind you). There's also an assortment of gems very much like that Rarity gem-finding episode. Incidentally, the next time the party sees Thez, her 'outfit' will be much more over-the-top opulent, fashioned to almost look like a pair of jester's tights. with shiny mirrored plates accenting various spots, which themselves look like windows through which you can see cherry-blossoms shifting lazily in the wind, but for now she's still curled up around her contract sleeping most soundly.
As for magic items there are:
A Rod of Cancellation
A Rod of Metamagic - Silent Spell
A Scroll of Water Breathing
A Ring of Improved Jumping
A 30' length of Rope of Entaglement (Hang Yourself!)
2 Golden-Steel Masterwork Bastard swords
1 Golden-Steel Rapier
1 Golden-Steel Orcish Double-Axe
and 1 Golden-Steel Greatsword that's way too big for anyone to use, but also looks like its missing something (technically finished, but technically not).

The Golden-steel weapons are all masterwork, but currently non-magical (they'd been crafted but not enchanted at the time of the reset).

Its a 14" rod of graphite appearance that when used (deliberately) will cancel out any magical item of non-artifact status (so it won't work on Vandereim for example).
The ring grants +10 to jump checks.
You're not proficient with rapiers (so -2 to attacks, but with the +1 its only a -1, and it can easily be further augmented).

Where do you plan to store it? We're talking piles here, and an ounce of metal = 4 bits. Meaning, there's about 120000 shekels present.

Actually, I should clarify. Titanium (Mythril, sorry I said it wrong, but titanium is mythril in D&D) and Adamantite have particular properties. Adamantite is heavier than steel, but twice as hard (which means damage reduction for armor, or negating damage reduction for weapons). Mythril is lighter than steel, and slightly harder (minimal damage reduction, or minimal reduction negation, but vastly less cumbersome. Think frodo's shirt in LOTR).

Well since I think time is still playing in-universe, Trump has instructed Lenos to take the pyramid to Port Barry, as well as to look out for any Eldridge Abominations summoned by the bait earlier, where he has begun the process of turning Port Barry into the source of man power for later operations. His first act is to contract a stadium-cathedral, besides recruit townsfolk to transfer wealth from the pyramid to the vault of Port Barry

There are two goals that guide our actions - to kill the Terrasque, and to convert this planet's inhabitants to the one true Football. Though at first these may seem to be disparate and separate goals, the latter actually feeds into the former, as clerical knowledge gained, and the power of devoted followers, can be weaponized for use against the Terrasqu, and Elway is more likely to let us prevail if we first spread His word. But besides the religious aspect, we also need to create seige weapons, or draft an army, for use against our many opponents. To these seperate ends, we must build a stadium - to worship and train the common folk in Football; establish a monastic order - to be missionaries travelling the planet, to teach peasants in the arts (including the art of turning adamantium into ammunition), and perhaps even to fight in our battles; improve the resources of the current forge - so that it may be able to create the Trebuchets (can we make cannons?) that can slay larger foes; and create a headquarters for the peasantry to organize much of this on their own. Remember that Port Barry is, above all, a port. It can import laborers, skilled and unskilled, any materials necessary, and export missionaries

Trumpaladin's first stage is to use his perception to judge the most pure and worthy of the unconverted peasants. These, he converts with his showing of Superbowl XXXII and Elway's Helicopter tackle. these shall become his first monks and establish the monastic order of Mile High. This monstatic order will have several functions. Most will begin the missionary process of converting the entire population of Port Barry to Football. Some will assume the role of educators at the Port Barry Parochial School, which may need to be constructed. They shall train the citizenry in every essential art. And some will board the next ship out to far off lands to spread the word of Football

No matter, he has time. Assuming the treasury is secured - and that is the most important step, because he really will need that 120,000 shekels as the down payment for this program - Trump starts a public function - a rally, if you will - where he gives a speech about everything his group has accomplished thus far, and how they will bring jobs, jobs, jobs to the lower class citizens of Port Barry when the manufacturing of weapons begins. But while speaking about how he will make Port Barry Safe gain, Work Again, and Great Again, he mentions Football.

The purpose of this rally is two fold - to instill trust for the group in the citizens of Port Barry, but more importantly, to look for those six or so people who will approach him to talk about football. They, he will convert. And they in turn shall become monks, who will hep find other monks

Okay, so of those who are receptive, you're looking to form an ace-team. Very Trump of you, I get it. Also the library isn't a bad idea. While that is the purpose of the library in the tower, there is no harm in having more resources.
Incidentally, at this point only Lenos has actually read the manual, so the party is still kinda at his 'mercy'.

Well here's the thing. Aside from my earlier indication of "largely/moderately skilled", your skills are as yet undefined. As a 12th (maybe 13th, I haven't crunched the numbers yet from last night) level rogue, you have LOTS (rogues get the most skill points FYI). Additionally, there is the topic of feats which amount to 'special moves/techniques', which you also have several of. Depending on your (and not just your) preference I can summarize/detail the specifics, or if you have the time and are bored I can direct you to my personal favorite resource on the matter:

Alright... (I've never RP before, and can't really make heads or tails of this). I prefer to keep things mostly ambiguous at this point though, because I'm really learning as I go...
As for racial abilities and limitations, I'm not sure about Tracy... There is no real established "pony" race, among role-playing games; and a lot of w00t's Tracy pics on DB are labelled "semi-anthro" because of her flexibility of movement.. Overall, she's a meme-OC with an inconsistent design. I welcomed the chance to turn into a mount, partly because I could just play as the 'Awakened Horse' species, which was why I didn't triple-wield at any time during that play. The problems also come up with character evolution. Horse aren't exactly given very much specificity, when it comes to getting stronger over time, although but beyond level 6 they're geared to evolve into unicorns or pegasi, BUT I DON'T WANT THAT because it's horseshit. Long term, I was hoping to write-up a unique class for character development based on ghost rider and the book of revelations, having her being corrupted through wicked feats, insanity, and demonic possession (like she does in the books) for the sake of unlocking monstrous evolution pathlines, but I'm still totally new to this stuff....

Also, you said that ponimaru's body would be reconstructed, but his mental state wouldn't automatically recover: any chance I could take advantage of his PTSD and threaten him into making me a ninja scroll
