    I was wrong, it doesn't read like that for the quote. I could have sworn, but maybe that was in my dream.

    So that might indicate that a portal and entrance are the same. Which goes back to another conversation some of us had. It’s just a different type of portal.

    It also might indicate that the portal opens up to the entrance chamber. I think it was also stated that there was another entrance or portal to the dungeon proper from the dungeons entrance chamber.

    That makes even more sense for placing the four sided portcullis in the entrance chamber with Ricthers portal. That gives him magical control over both portals to the dungeons entrance room. Then with the added physical defense of the portcullis with guards it would make for a very guarded position for the dungeon and his Portal.

    Reads kinda wordy but the dungeon itself is referred to as a portal to the Labyrinth there twice. I don't think it's a separate 'portal' so much as a different reference to the same thing. Portal tech could very well be based on Dungeon’s though. Like in the wild portals appear as big lengthy Dungeons that eventually spit you out into the Labyrinth. By studying the mana flows, and compressing them into intricate highly durable archways with powerful souls, and monster parts, you can emulate the natural portal effects

    With the trip to the city with the orcs on the way likely in his future, what are the chances that Richter sells the ability to awaken 4 kinds of magic in folks? I assume he can do that for anyone if they have an affinity towards one of the magics.
    It might paint a target on his back but it might also get him in good with the orcs and their tribe.

    Probably not the best idea. The orcs would be able to guess that he is either a really powerful mage who has mastered four different elemental power, or he is a Master isolated from his troops and protectors. Richter is only one man after all, so the orc leaders might just decide to shake him down for the crystal.

    Good points. You’d have to trust them or kill ‘em before they can tell anyone.

    Shake him down for the crystal? What Crystal does Ricther have?

    Richter is clearly a very powerful caster/healer/mage/smasher hehe : no need to spend potions to heal wounds when Richto can heal for free.
    Also Richto needs some troops for protection/info/trade/scouting/fighting etc.. 1 in a field is not an army but just a scout.

    Now sure orcs can snitch, will snitch, so recruit them, bind them by oaths, make deals and alliances, Orcs owe their lives to Richto. But say as little as possible. If not possible kill them. But this should never happen unless they are retarded.
    And if these Orcs become allies, then sure awaken the magics! I would try to make allies with orcs, because we need fighters, we have none.
    Also noone will assume that Richto is a mage lol He looks like a dumb barbarian/druid. Who put all his points to strength. Even Ogers should show some respect to his power.
    This Richto&OgreLord communication is done emphasizing the bold words so that even the dumb Ogres would understand:

    "Richto Angrry Richto Smaaash. Giive Waand Or thousands go to Waarrr. We Smaaash!"

    Richto continues to smash his club to the ground... and jump in the air preferably at least 2 feet higher than Ogre Lord head.

    Comma pretty sure this will work lol

    LMAO! @ Pokey

    They would be RERE if the don’t immediately know Ricther not only as a bad@$$ mage but a warrior who saved the last 4-5 of their party.

    That alone should weigh heavily upon them even as they regroup for the next vurms.

    Thoughts the Orcs would have?


    You saved us!
    Who in the world is this?
    Did you see what he did?
    Thank the gods for our savior.
    Please will you stay with us?
    Don’t leave us alone, together we are stronger.
    Don’t leave us in the dark with these Vurms!
    What took you so long?
    Who is Bond?
    What is a martini?
    How should we know?

    I just don’t think it’s going to be.

    We are going to tell on you.
    Okay, forget the Vurms and kill that guy.
    Hey where are your pants?
    Okay, big naked guy. We know you just saved us and all but you can’t have that guy’s shoes or his robe.
    You can’t have any of the water. We don’t drink after strangers.
