M Mind Flayer 6 Inquisitor of Vecna

Vecthan follows too. ::Its nice having a steady suppy of trap finders ::


Xal follows as well.

::It's a luxury we shouldn't take for granted.::

The new thrall is actually a (from a human point of view) very beautiful blond woman, with eyes made of orbs of gold and silver and skin like bronze, with great feathered wings

roll a knowledge planes to learn more about the creature


? Aberration Illithid 8 / Oracle (Lore) 6

Haruhito ruminates for a bit as he tries to work-out what it is that is before him...

1d6 ⇒ 1 rounds later...

Knowledge(Planes): 1d20 + 15 + 20 ⇒ (13) + 15 + 20 = 48.

Spoiler:
The creature before you is an angel, either a spawn of nirvana or heaven, clearly here to help humans bring the sun, its not the one in the vision but it looks similar to it. There is something strange about this angel, it seems to be partially an archon as some of the traits it has are clearly archon in nature. You can tell this creature is "lawful good" in nature, it is probably as smart as mindflayers or smarter and it most definently is a very powerful combatant


? Aberration Illithid 8 / Oracle (Lore) 6

That thing is some sort of angel; either a spawn of Nirvana or Heaven, I am unclear which. It is clearly here to help the humans bring back the sun; it is not the one in the vision, but it looks similar to it... There is something strange about this angel, it seems to be partially an Archon as some of the traits it has are clearly Archonic in nature. It is definitely a being of pure "Law and Good" in nature, it is probably nearly as smart as we are, or maybe even a little bit more so, and it most definently is a very powerful combatant. Are you *sure* you have it under control? I am a bit antsy about simply 'keeping' something this dangerous around...


Hemaphrodite? Illithid Wiz5\Bloat mage 1

Thought to the group ::Reasonably sure. Can angels be mind controlled? Stay on guard regardless.:: Would I know if she was faking being controlled?

To the angel, "Tell us everything you know of what lies in the tunnel before us."

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

There are ways of telling if she was faking, but your gut feeling is that she isn't faking being controlled

"Beyond is the only hope for this world and its guardians, that which will bring back the sun, a child yet to be who is powerful enough to restart the sun. It is guarded by four great heroes from beyond the veils that part the worlds who never sleep, never eat and will stand their ground beyond their death"


Hemaphrodite? Illithid Wiz5\Bloat mage 1

"You will answer mine and my companions questions, starting with what kind of creature are you exactly?"

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

"I am unique, made from the blood of those fallen fighting your kind, made by the gods to guide this world back into the light"


Hemaphrodite? Illithid Wiz5\Bloat mage 1

"Interesting. I would think the gods were smart enough to make you immune to mind control. I suppose that's one reason the master race is winning. I digress, lead us down the passage and alert us to any dangers you know of or find. We can talk on the way."

Proceeding, but other characters can ask questions on the way.

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

"You can't pass straight away, just beyond is a living block that will dissolve your flesh from your bones"


Hemaphrodite? Illithid Wiz5\Bloat mage 1

"That's very helpful, slave. How does one bypass this living block?"

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

"Kill it or trick it out the way with bait"


::Well, that's not very good. I don't particularly want to strike a block like that with any of the weapons I use. I'd like to, if possible, lead it out.::


Male Mindflayer Psychic Warrior 3/Phrenic Slayer 3

"Perhaps we should get a few more slaves to help draw it out?"

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

so bait with the thralls?


Hemaphrodite? Illithid Wiz5\Bloat mage 1

yes, bait with the thralls.

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Right it doesn't take long before something from beyond the corridors starts to move, its very hard to see what it is, but it looks like a giant cube of transparent jelly, suddenly it gets a bust of speed and it engulfs one of the thralls, visibly eating away the thrall's flesh


Hemaphrodite? Illithid Wiz5\Bloat mage 1

When it attacks can we basically figure out where it is?

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

you can work out where it is (as in which and how many 5ft squares it is occuping)


That should work fine then, I would imagine.


Hemaphrodite? Illithid Wiz5\Bloat mage 1

::On my mark send a thrall that way (points) and we'll all run past on the opposite side. Saavy?::

Unless someone has an objection we use that plan.


I thought you were the only one who could dominate? All we've got are charm, which can't really do this sort of thing.

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

I will just point out that you'll still be in the threat range of the cube even if it squeezes to one side of the corridor since the cube is a large creature


Hemaphrodite? Illithid Wiz5\Bloat mage 1

::It's a tight squeeze. perhaps we just kill it. Ranged weapons fire when ready.::

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

The cube moves closer to you all and in a round will be within attacking reach

Myron still indicates that the ranged people should fire.

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Right this game seems to have grinded to a hault, it was fun but we're going to end it now. Thank you all for playing

Qadira

Male Human Bard 1/Barbarian 1

Alright then, I guess. I was waiting for the ranged people to fire, having no ranged capabilities myself, but I suppose this works.


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

Well, this is rather abrupt. To be fair, this is a rather tricky situation and we only have one true archer. I can sorta pull off range attacks, but not without using a power first.

Cheliax

male wraith biomedical scientist lv5/ film director lv3

Well no one had posted for a while, and except for Myron, it was like a post a week or two, it felt better to ended here
