Idiot. You could have let them bring you almost where you wanted to be, and then escaped. Now you're just going to stumble about until you starve.

I shake off the negativity. Nobody lights fires up here. Maybe someone will eventually notice the smoke? If I just lie down, I'm going to starve anyway, so I might as well keep going.

Hm. I should fetch the fifth branch now and light it with the fourth branch when that gets low. I should only stop when I'm exhausted. It'll probably only be worse when I wake up.

If the smoke was going into the sky, maybe. But its not, its rising up the passage.

Julian gets that branch lit. How long will he march for? He's got three hours of sleep right now.

Well I guess I'll check to see if it's thin near the top of the tunnel occasionally. If I find a spot I could try burning through.

Well if my hands gone out and that's as long as Reslins light, I suppose that's about half an hour. I'd like to march (with breaks) as long as I slept, but I'll probably get ready to sleep once I catch myself dozing when I rest.

Thin spots on the bottom of the tunnel are easy to see: light shines through them from the sky below. Thin spots at the top... that's harder. After a couple dozen checks, Julian can't find a spot that is "thin" at the top, all that seems to be there is more roots and vegetation, with small amounts of dirt.

Its about two hours, not half an hour. So that would be about another hour of marching. Which is pretty doable.

Well let's burn through one of the thin spots on the bottom of the tunnel then. I don't imagine the dirt and vegetation will burn that well.

I think about roots and the vegetation as I continue marching. Probably makes sense to have leaves at the bottom when all the sunlight comes from that direction. Don't really need to grow against gravity either. The mass tangle I'm walking on is probably like the canopy of a rainforest. A little surprising that it can handle the weight of a person.

The fire on his hand has gone out... make a roll to make it again.



Did you write down the pattern in your diary?

Well Rails, Ump, etc. knew light and heat, so the answer looks like yes. Maybe worth a bonus.

I guess the burning twig just won't do it.

yeah, a burning twig won't do it.



I suppose its time to standardize the mechanics behind vasic... or at least explain them to you (Vasic is one of the first custom magic systems I ever did in Gurps.) You are using Vasic Operation (Energy Stone), which is an IQ/A skill. You're doing it by default(-5), with extra time (+?) and a reference (doubles bonus from extra time spent). So spending x4 the time gets you a +4, which is enough.



Julian takes his time, and puts another beam of intense heat on his hand. He slowly starts burning a hole in the vegetation... its not a particuarly efficient way to make a hole. Below him he can see the clouds shining up.

Yeah, I skimmed that when I realized that Riask was mentioned twice in passing before. I'll update the character sheet with the default.

Well if it's still burning, hopefully that will draw attention. Then I guess I'll rest away from the burning hole while I wait for the heat on my hand fade. Rather not roll over and burn myself.

How big around a hole is Julian going to make?
