TOPIC: spider word puzzle room

Re: spider word puzzle room 5 years 1 month ago #13

We figured it out slightly accidentally. We had the J/L issue. But got it anyway on our 2nd or 3rd try. Also the way the room looked was fantastic. I did NOT want to go near the mummified corpse.

"luscle" looks like part of "lust" and part of "circle". Part of the trick was figuring out where to spiral out to the next ring.

The other tricksy part was with the L/J. You could either "eject someone to touch the lust demon" or "elect someone to touch the just demon". So, the instruction made sense either way. I think there was the L in circle that could be used to clarify, though.

The trick was to revive the corpse with a mystic mushroom or PoDD and get bonus treasure at the end for having an eleventh party member :D

The presence of the husk in the middle allowed me to Speak With Dead (GMs seem to forget about the Shade Cloak and I keep getting asked how a Ranger/Monk/Rogue/Fry Cook can perform that function). Unfortunately, I caught the GM flatfooted and he kinda flailed on giving me a secondary clue, but at least he gave it a shot.

Fave moment in this room.

Me and one other went over to check the Lust Demon image...I touched it six times and nothing happened.

Rest of party was figuring out specifically what was said, so I touched the "just" demon...first touch, took damage.

"Whoah, wait...I got no damage for touching the lust demon".

Then we figured that only ONE of us could be outside the web.

Thursday Morning when we first saw this puzzle there was no black tape so we started with Relect one from cicle and then said wait that can't be it, it must be "elect one from circle to touch just deamon 6 times. We touched it and got zapped, then when Oh!!! Eject I from circle to touch lust deamon VI times!

Got it on the second try without much problem.

On further runs I found that the L's were not the same between elect, circle and Lust but they were still facing the same way.

We had the Shade Cloak on all of us (due to Gertz's Backpack). I did not think it would work on the "husk" since the token says "Characters" (meaning us ten), and not NPCs or other dead creatures. That was my thought anyway.

I cant remember if it worked the last time we found a mummy (the "He was Hexed" room).

here , the token doesn't specify targets. The description only includes party members, but it doesn't limit it to them.

I am surprised this didn't get hit with the Ban Hammer such that it failed to work somehow.... I hate it when players are punished for being clever making use of the tokens they paid good money for... so I am glad this actually worked.

Have you looked it up in the TDb ?
Please post TDb corrections/suggestions in this thread .
If I write something in teal, it should not be taken seriously.
