Alright, the images is pretty clear, thanks!

By the way, is the water coming in or out of The Caves?

I guess we should take "option 2", let's see what the others think.

Out of the Caves. The stream is also wider and curvier than the straight line in the drawing.

I should also point out; building a whole chimney into the caves would very difficult as the caves go deep into the canyon - you'd need to dig down several stories through solid earth from the top.

Even just building the fire pits would take time and be obvious.

Given then comments, we should start a fire in the area, and also block the flow of water coming from the caves. This way not only will the monsters inside suffocate, some of them may also drown inside.

I like this idea. What is next?

When you are all ready, post in the IC thread about what exactly the first step of your plan is that your characters are attempting, so we can see if you can pull that off.

Telrith doesn't have dig-spam yet: that would cost 3 points. Now, I have three points to spend, though I was kind of hoping that one would go to earth vision.

So I'm hearing that we want to build a fire in a kiln near the opening of the ravine, then pipe the smoke up to the entrances through a variety of earthen tubes.

Is the plan to hit all of the caves at once, or just one or two of them? that's a lot of digging. Are we planning to block the entrances of other caves just using dirt? Which entrances are our targets?

Also, I'm of the opinion that we should take out a few of the lower entrances first, rather than attacking the entire cave complex at once.

I guess the only thing left to do is start the fire and block the flow of water:

We shall fumigate The Caves with the smoke produced by a (massive) fire in/at the canyon's woods/foliage, and wait until the fire and the smoke dissipate.

Our enemies will die intoxicated while we wait in the outside, in the fresh air.

By blocking the exit of water, another portion of the enemies dies drowned.

We may only need earth magic to have the earth collapse and block the flow of water, and also to build a ladder/ramp to get to a higher cave.

We could take "cave #2" which is in the middle level and is also close to the canyon's exit.

I would like to remind you that an overnight camping both requires more meals eaten and puts you at increased risk of random encounters.

You guys did not manage to build a fire or block the water. You can try again in 4 hours of in-game time. Trying again before then means penalties to the roll.

Each hour out by the caves is one random encounter. You can all probably rest up to recover FP in less than one hour.
