Disa peers at the creature. "Do you not have any food to eat?"


Redec eyes the robust magus hungrily;

"We do. We do. Pantry to the South of this cave yessss... Pull leaver to get food... not to touch gold or shiney's... No! Bearncennicge forbids!"

The cave dweller hungrily nods, drool hanging from his toothy maw...

"Redec can go... guests wait for feast?"

Ragnar just speaks a single word "Show" making to follow him.

Ragnar growls with a lower and deeper intent "Anytime..."


The wretch shambles forward at the huscarl's behest, leading the group down the twisting tunnel until a large level sits against the wall;

Knowledge: Engineering or Dungeoneering DC12:

Clearly the level and its function is a relatively recent addition. This is not Puca craft at work...

As you draw close the stench of animal musk and dung is strong and ripe... gaggingly so...

DC10 Fort save or Sickened by the stench

Redec shuffles excitedly from one foot to the other;

"Pull geafle (lever) once... once mind yesssss. Pantry open, andleofen (food/pottage) only but leave gold... No handhrine (touch) gold! No forstalian (steal) gold!!!"

Nose wrinkled in disgust at the overpowering stench, Disa narrows her eyes as she glares at the beast.


Fort Save: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (1) + 7 = 8

Oh my...what a horrible stench <gag...gag> What died in here? Frerin pinches his nose.


Redec grins wickedly as Muli pulls the lever and thus the catalyst for several things happen:

Deeper within the lair, the links of a heavy chain suddenly pulling clatter through the dank air. Their rattle herald the guttural roar that follows them as something both stinking and heavy this way lumbers...

The hinderling cackles and dances an unhinged jig;

"Oh yessss dwoerg-scum! What died? YOU DIED EHEHEHEHEH! STENCMAGA (Auld Iobarian: Stinkmaw) COMES!!!!"

Round 1

With the rattle of rusty chain providing percussion to the brutes guttural roar, a huge beast lumbers toward you from the gloom;

Perception DC10:

Foul-smelling fluids ooze from weeping sores across the scaly skin of this squat, powerful, and vaguely canine beast.

Knowledge: Arcana DC14:

This beast is a particularly large specimen of a trowhund (or trollhound) - voracious beasts that carry both foul contagion and can regenerate wounds like their namesake masters...

Everybody's up

Round 1: 16/38 -> 22/44 HP, AC 14, 3/12 Rage rounds used

At Redec's inevitable betrayal, Ragnar sighs and lets conscious thoughts fade... and the black rage suffuse his mind and take over. With guttural snarl his legs pump piston like to project him towards Redec, and skaggig rips through the air with scything motion...
Raging Power Attack Greataxe: 1d20 + 7 + 2 - 1 ⇒ (18) + 7 + 2 - 1 = 26 for 1d12 + 4 + 3 + 3 ⇒ (5) + 4 + 3 + 3 = 15
...contacting the bastard upon the shoulder bone, with the heavy blade deflecting downwards off the clavicle to cut bloody ruin through Redec's chest.

Move and cut


Feckin boards ate my map lol

MAPPAGE

Forgot how much you lot dish it out... Brutal!


Male Human Ranger Warden/3, HP: 33/33, AC: 17, T: 13, FF: 14, Initiative: +6, Perception: +7 (+2)

Hey, why am I not on the map?

Round 1, Point Blank

Seeing Ragnar make for the turncoat, Luke fires quickly into the beast.

LB Att: 1d20 + 8 + 1 ⇒ (8) + 8 + 1 = 17
LB Dam: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (6) + 1 = 7


Sorry man - oversight... removed Skol and must have wiped you as well - position yourself wherever and I'll add you in :)


Finding its mark down the rough hewn corridor, Muli's Molotov rodent explodes in a gout of flame, explicating a painful bellow from the trowhund as it barrels forward.

Luke adds to its misery with a well aimed shot that buries itself deep into the brute's shoulder, causing it to stumble enraged as huge jaws "clack" in fury!

Redec's maniacal glee is short lived as Ragnar buries his bearded ax, deep into the wretch. Gouts of blood spray over both antagonists as the hinderlings cackle becomes a pained keening.

INITIATIVE ORDER - ROUND 1

Stencmaga (23)
Muli (19)
Luke & Ragnar (16 each)
Frerin (14)
Disa (9)
Redec (4)

Everyone remaining up
BTW - brute can fit into the corridor - was just trying to show what the fecking beastie was lol


Freeing stands back waiting to see if anyone will require healing.

22/44 HP

*cough cough* :P


Disa moves forward, mutter arcane and ancient words of lore and fire. Standing by Ragnar's shoulder she allows magic flame to gout forth from her outstretched fingers;

Burning Hands: 3d4 + 1 ⇒ (4, 1, 4) + 1 = 10

DMBD's fickle hand o' fate:

Reflex: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (10) + 5 = 15

The fyr licks at the oncoming trow-hund causing it to roar in anger, as it avoids taking the brunt of the magus' attack.


Round 1

Still howling in pain, the hinderling eyes Ragnar murderously and blindly quickly produces a huge bone knife;

MW Bone Shortsword: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21
Damage: 1d6 + 2 - 2 ⇒ (6) + 2 - 2 = 6

And buries it clean through the huscarls forearm with a hysterical shriek


Round 2

Stencmaga (23) Muli (19) Luke & Ragnar (16 each) Frerin (14) Disa (9) Redec (4)

Bulling forward its flesh searing from alchemical fire and magick flame comes Stencmaga.

The wounded brute snaps at the first target before it (Disa)...

Bite O' Blight: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (19) + 9 = 28
Damage: 1d10 + 7 ⇒ (5) + 7 = 12
Trip: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (5) + 8 = 13

... its foul jagged tooth maw snapping shut on her thigh, though the skirnir deftly keeps her footing as the squat monster attempts to shake her off her feet!

Disa: DC14 Fort Save please... Everyone up...

Luke again fires into the beast.

Round 2: 17/44 HP, AC 14, 4/12 Rage rounds used

Taking the knife in the arm with a guttural growl, Ragnar twists his body away to draw Redec close enough to drive his forehead at the bastard. As Redec stumbles backward away from the vikingr, he follows up with a heavy rising cross strike with skaggig...
Raging Power Attack Greataxe: 1d20 + 7 + 2 - 1 ⇒ (16) + 7 + 2 - 1 = 24 for 1d12 + 4 + 3 + 3 ⇒ (3) + 4 + 3 + 3 = 13

Stand and deliver

Fortitude Save: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (7) + 5 = 12

Assuming she still can...

Disa cries out in pain as the monstrous jaws clamp shut on her leg. Marshaling her thoughts, the shield maiden channels her own innate resistance onto the spikes of her shield causing them to glisten with corrosive acid. Grunting with the effort, she slams into the beast with the weight of her whole body through her shield.

Spiked Shield Poolstrike (acid): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (14) + 7 = 21

Melee damage + acid damage: 1d6 + 5 + 2d6 ⇒ (5) + 5 + (4, 6) = 20

Muli pulls a small ball of feathers from his bag and gives it a squeeze. "Cluck-cluck boom-boom" Muli steps back to avoid the teeth and sends a small Ptarmigan fluttering toward the beast.

Mutagenned Point Blank Ranged Snow Chick Touch Attack: 1d20 + 5 + 2 + 1 ⇒ (7) + 5 + 2 + 1 = 15

Mutagenned Point Blank Ranged Snow Chick Touch Damage: 2d6 + 4 + 1 ⇒ (1, 2) + 4 + 1 = 8 FIRE damage Avoiding 4 friends from splash

[ooc]Sorry. Didn't know your HP total.[ooc]

If I can retroact, I would like to move up last rd and draw my CLW wand and then heal this rd.

CLW: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (8) + 1 = 9

Never fear Ragnar! Frerin is here!


Round 2/3

Everything happens as if in slow-motion;

Ragnar's pained bellow fuels a savage hack that leaves Redec looking shocked at the pumping stump where a arm once was. The Hinderlander's hissing death rattle matching the spurting blood in tempo in a macabre scene...

... and yet he does not fall! Instead the freakish creature twists the knife buried in Ragnar's arm, with a gurgling chuckle...

Twist the Knife: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (8) + 5 = 13... but fails to grasp the bone blade with any great conviction.

Ahead of this bloody duel, the arrow of Berghof's warden finds its mark afore the trow-hund burns first from the kiss of corrosive bulwark, then is engulfed in the phosphoric Ptarmigan's death flame!

Disa feels the brutes jaw slacken and Stencmaga lies still...

Everyone up - trowhund is down whilst Redec should be...

Round 3: 26/44 HP, AC 14, 5/12 Rage rounds used

Ragnar focuses not on whether his foe should or should not have fallen - instead knowing only that it has not... yet. Skaggig is held with hands apart, haft butting away the knife and freeing room for the beard to flash forward and bite...
Raging Power Attack Greataxe: 1d20 + 7 + 2 - 1 ⇒ (19) + 7 + 2 - 1 = 27 for 1d12 + 4 + 3 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 4 + 3 + 3 = 12

Stand and deliver


Female Aasimar (Peri-blooded) Magus 3 (skirnir); Arcane Pool 2/4

I know others are before me, but I figured I'd post to get the combat moving. The map is not coming up for me, so if I cannot do this just let me know.

Disa charges to back up Ragnar. Stepping up beside him, she ploughs the spikes of her shield into the disgusting creature.

Improved Shield Bash: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (7) + 9 = 16

Damage: 1d6 + 5 ⇒ (3) + 5 = 8

Luke turns and fires on Redec.

LB Att: 1d20 + 8 + 1 ⇒ (13) + 8 + 1 = 22
LB Dam: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 1 = 6

Frerin continues to use his happy stick on the raging barbarian.

CLW: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2

That should heal up that wound rather nicely!

After the terrible attempt: Frerin taps the wand against his leg. Silly branch. You must do better than that!


Cloven, slammed and skewered the tenacious hinderling is torn asunder and his corpse flops like a wet rag upon the cavern floor.

Combat over - you brutal brutal people ;)

Both the foul cave dweller and fouler trow hund's bodies lie still and the caverns deathly silence offer a requiem to the brutally short combat...

Am presuming you guys will explore the caves? Here's the map again:

LAIR MAP

... and an overview of some of the locations - exploration beyond Area: X10 will require additional descriptions :)

X6 Main Hall:

This is a large, circular chamber with five dark alcoves around the outside wall, one closed off by a curtain made of patchwork humanoid skin. In the centre of the room are a firepit, a large grime cauldron, gore encrusted ladel, a rudimentary table made from a door and some sacks and chests...

X7 Old Guard Room:

(This is where you encountered Redec first) - we can redescribe should you wish to check over again...

X8 Trow Hund Kennel:

A heaped nest of mud, fur and cracked bones dominates this rough hewn chamber. Elsewhere stinking piles of dried excrement litter the cave. offering traps underfoot to any wishing to delve further...

X9 The Training Room:

Arranged around this room are items which one would associate with training for combat and torture. Near one wall is a broken and blood-stained manikin. A rotten skull with long spikes hammered into it hangs by a chain from the ceiling. There are several thigh bones of varying thickness in a rack and a large barrel upon which sits several lengths of coiled rope... both the barrel and rope and slick with congealed blood.

Nearby on a bench against another wall are some bottles and crossbow bolts. Under this bench is a battered straw target...

X10 Blockage:

A passage leading from the one which you have been following is completely blocked by a jumble of rocks, casks, sacks and other items. As you approach, the barricade of refuse the strong stench of rotting flesh assails you...


Male Human Ranger Warden/3, HP: 33/33, AC: 17, T: 13, FF: 14, Initiative: +6, Perception: +7 (+2)

Let's start out search in the Main Hall.

Perception: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (4) + 7 = 11

Hey, these chests and sacks should amount to somethin'.


Frerin follows Luke. Hmmm...What do we have here? He looks around as well.

Perception: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (12) + 10 = 22

Ragnar makes sure of Redec's inability to rise by removing his head from it's companion torso before slumping tired and bloody against the wall as the others make investigation of the lair.


Female Aasimar (Peri-blooded) Magus 3 (skirnir); Arcane Pool 2/4

Disa moves to Ragnar, pulling out a scroll as she approaches the barbarian. Unfurling the parchment, she reads out the words of magic, in a foul sibilant hissing language, and a wan red light suffuses the Ulfen. The glow malevolently pulses every few seconds as his wounds began rapidly sealing themselves.

scroll of infernal healing restores 10 hp

Once done, she pulls out another scroll and reads it, bathing herself in the same red light.

Ragnar nods a wary and suspicious thanks as the dark magicks do their work.
