The Heart of Darkness... [Main Game Thread]

The (Original!) Tomb of Horrors!!!
S1 by the great Gygax 1978. Everything adapted to 2e. This is NOT the Return to ToH written for 2e


Labyrinth of Madness!!! Previously Concluded (by TPK)
S6 by Monte Cook from 1995. Designed for 2e. IMHO this one is the tougher of the two, but not by much.

Sorril does as requested, and the metal object survives contact with no damage

Any pots we could use to transfer the acid to the other now empty-ish container?

[Ooc]There are a few around. But the size means it would take several people an hour or so to empty the vat even half way[/ooc]

Are there any drains in the floor? Does anyone have something that can be used as a drill?

"Nice work Sorril. Let's try a bit deeper."

=====================================================
(OOC: Is the metal bar Sorril holds long enough to get the object out? In any case we may be able to drain only some of the vat content so the bar will be long enough to safely fish the object, and lastly we can use the container to mix contents of the liquids and see what happens. :) )

[OOC]No drains in the floor, Noct. What would you like to try to use as a drill, and are you asking aloud?
The metal 'bar' is about the length of a human hand, so not nearly long enough to reach the bottom[/ooc]

With no drains he won't ask.

Faldair considers the stone vats for a moment. Well... the large vats appear to be made of stone. I have some prayers able to shape stone, if we have some way to mitigate what flows out... he muses aloud

"Does anyone remember if there was there a bowl in the chapel? If so maybe it could be used to get the liquid out."

"How many of those spells do you have prepared? Maybe we could make a trough in the floor to accept the liquid."

Only once, but what i can do should be able to hold about one third of the contents of that vat.

"Or could you just extend the vat horizontally, to make it more shallow? I believe I could also have access to this spell, but I have limited experience with it."

He ponders the question. Perhaps. I can move a fair amount of stone. What size/ shape are you thinking?


====
the vats are 7 ft diameter, 4 ft high and about 3 ft full of liquid. The stone can be shaped but the volume of stone must remain the same
