Oh come on...who can remember the last time they had this much fun in a simple ol' pit trap? 2nd Edition? (Yes, Ulric fell in too.) It's like peanut butter brittle--so little time to make, but hours of pleasure once it's ready to eat!

Wow. We kind of all suck, don't we?

Thunk. "OW! Damn spikes! Hey guys, be careful!"

"Okay!"
Thunk. "OW! Damn spikes!"

etc.

Hint for Roy: I can think of at least one other way to get out of that pit without needing to make another Climb check...it's in the skill description.

Here I am, preparing to give a presentation to Boeing's VP of T&D in less than 10 hours, yet I'm busy trying to figure out how to climb out of a trap.
ARG, if there's a hint in there, it's too well hidden for me at this point. Thanks for the pain though.

Say Hi to whomever it is now, from me. Not that s/he will know.

The consulting firm I used to work for had deep connections with Boeing. I recall working for months on a roadmap to GPS on airplanes for them, and then delivering it over drinks with the firm's principal to Jim Albaugh. This was back in '99 or '00. In the intervening time, our world's aircraft don't seem to have taken noticeable advantage of GPS technologies to better flight spacing or on-time performance. {shrug}

Climb: the skill specifies a person can simply haul another person up on a rope.

Tell Boeing to build more Airplanes......

They have some orders they had with my company on hold. We're a couple hundred thousand under budget in sales for the year because of them.

No. After I got the MBA I did strategy consulting work with a boutique firm here inside the Beltway. Defense and aerospace (same thing really, no point mincing words) were our main sectors. For that project I had to go to Capitol Hill and talk to senate staffs and committee members and whatnot, and then too the FAA.

That was when I first began fearing for the future of air travel...

...Why, is your company hiring...?

I can almost hear the clanking of that ring, and I can just feel you smirking ARG.

Boy I hope someone brought extra rations, and type wolf blood.

Lycanthropy: it's not just Oh yeah you think you're tough {poof} Now I'm a towering hybrid man-imal ready to decorate the bar with your blood in artistic spatters, but sometimes Oh poop now my clothes are shredded and how am I supposed to make a Gather Info check in the local town?

Rowr!
