The spider dismisses Vladimir's blade as little threat, and springs toward Hrafen. It lands a dozen feet from him, and scrambles toward him. Still maintaining the lulling sound from its mouth, it rears up looming over the halfling on the dog.

As Vladimir's CMD is 17, I would assume the spider's movement would trigger an AoO, correct?

AoO (if needed): 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (6) + 8 = 14
Damage: 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (5) + 3 = 8

Not that it matters...

Correct on both... I'd forgoten to add the ooc note for your AoO, and you missed

Hrafen gulps as the overgrown arachnid closes with him.

"Umm.... A little help, here!"

Hrafen backs Archibald away from the spider (5' step), and throws a trio of force missiles into it at point blank range.

Magic Missile: 3d4 + 6 ⇒ (2, 4, 2) + 6 = 14 damage.

Rooks will save: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 2 = 8

Glenrenil lets loose another arrow, hoping this time it finds its mark.

Longbow: 1d20 ⇒ 3

Again Glenrenil misses her target. Terror grips her as she sees Hrafen in danger. She cries "Rook attack." with no avail. She moves closer to the spider. If she had to she would take the spider on herself. Nothing would hurt her friend. Not if she could help it.

Move to p18

With no better option at the moment, Coramus levels his crossbow and fires into the melee, hoping for the best.

Crossbow: 1d20 + 4 - 4 ⇒ (7) + 4 - 4 = 7
Damage: 1d8 ⇒ 3

Male Human Paladin 3, HP: 26/26, AC: 16(18), Fort: +6, Ref: +3, Will: +6 (Horse HP:17 /17)

With it's attention focused on Hrafen, Vorik moves up to attack the spider from the rear. Unfortunately, the arachnid feels his presence and easily steps aside to avoid the blow.

Move to Q12
Attack: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (2) + 8 = 10

Round 2

Moving from (N,11}->(O,12)->(P,13)->(Q,13)->(R,13)->(S,12)

Vladimir carefully moves around and in toward the spider, slashing at the arachnid as he reaches his destination.

Using Combat Expertise, Threatening Defender negates the -1 penalty, AC = 19

Attack: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (1) + 8 = 9
Damage: 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (4) + 3 = 7

Wow the die roller has been bad this combat. @DMBG - Do you have any critical fumble rolls or the like that you need me to make?

Nope... 1 is just an automatic miss on an attack roll. I don't use fumbles. I am merciless toward casters when melees don't hit though. Go dice roller!

The spider's lulling sound stops as it winces from Hrafen's second barrage, and advances on him. This time the creature bites.

bite vs Hrafen: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (18) + 7 = 25
1d8 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6 plus Fort save vs Poison DC16

Failure equals...:

You feel "pins and needles" in your muscles with just simple movement... as if your body is "going to sleep".
Bite--injury, save Fort DC 16; frequency 1/round for 4 rounds; effect staggered condition and 1 Str; cure 1 save. The save DC is Strength-based.


Round 3



Male Human Cleric 3

Can't update the map at the moment.

Coramus drops his crossbow and moves closer to the fight and the injured Halfling. He draws his mace as he moves.

Move behind Hrafen, double move if needed. If I can get there in a single move, I will cast CLW on him. CLW: 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (3) + 3 = 6

Male Halfling Sorceror (Crossblood [Orc]/[Elemental(Primal)] & Tattooed Sorceror) 3

Fort: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (9) + 3 = 12.

Starting to look pale and woozy, Hrafen nonetheless manages to urge Archibald to back away (5' step), and fires another volley of force missiles into the creature!

Magic Missile: 3d4 + 6 ⇒ (2, 4, 3) + 6 = 15 Force damage.

"Someone else please hit the damn thing; I am not a fly, and don't intend to be a spider's evening snack!"

Guide with knees: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (18) + 5 = 23

Male Varisian Human Fighter (Weapon Master) 1 / Bard 2

5 ft step to (T,12)

"I assure you, Hrafen, that is what we are trying to do...just not with a lot of success." he says taking another swing at the spider.

Attack: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (14) + 8 = 22

Rook's will save: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (9) + 2 = 11

Glenrenil screams "Wake up Rook" as she runs to the fray. True anger grips her as she sees her friend bitten by the spider. Her heart stood still for a moment at the sight of Hrafen's blood. It was dark and thick. A massive wound. She would not loose him. this spider must die.

Move to T18

She sees an opening and lets loose one last arrow before entering combat.

Longbow: 1d20 ⇒ 4

Another miss. She was failing to protect her friends. This could not happen. This will not happen. If it meant her life she would kill this thing. All this runs thru her mind in the blink of an eye.

Rook is "released" from the trance. The spider making an attack would have snapped him out of it... also the spider is no longer maintaining his lulling sound.

Rook snaps out of his trance and turns to his master. Glenrenil seeing him regain his senses shouts "Attack Rook." rook quickly moves toward the spider and snaps at one of its legs.

5 ft step to T12

Rook's bite: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (7) + 5 = 12
DMG: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (4) + 3 = 7

Male Human Paladin 3, HP: 26/26, AC: 16(18), Fort: +6, Ref: +3, Will: +6 (Horse HP:17 /17)

Cursing under his breath, Vorik sets his feet and again tries to land a solid blow on the elusive spider.

Attack: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (8) + 8 = 16
Damage: 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

Vladimir's blade scores a wound which is hard for the spider to ignore. It takes a moment before deciding to envenom him as well.
It shrugs off Rook's bites as it turns toward Vladimir, but Vorik's hammer catches it with a grazing blow.
The strike tears a mandible and attached matter free.
The spider twitches for a few seconds before dropping.

Hrafen breathes a sigh of relief, before wondering aloud:

"Do you think it ambushed other travellers? If so, should we spend some time digging around in this area?"

Once ensured that the spider is indeed dead, Coramus will channel the power of his deity to heal his injured companions. Channel: 2d6 ⇒ (6, 4) = 10

Male Varisian Human Fighter (Weapon Master) 1 / Bard 2

Vladimir exhales, releasing the tension in his muscles as he was preparing for the spider's bit. "Nice timing, Vorik, most appreciated."

"Hrafen, are you alright?" the swordsman asks, concerned for the health of the sorcerer and a nod of appreciation toward Coramus for healing energies.

"I suspect that is the case, Hrafen, particularly with the drag marks back this direction. I imagine if we search the thicket a bit more carefully we may find a few of the creature's victims."

Glenrenil goes to Hrafen's side. Seeing Coramus heal him eases her mind. She sheepishly says "Hrafen do you need more healing? I am so glad you are alright. Does anyone else need healing?" She turns to Coramus "Thank you Coramus." Feeling ashamed because of her uselessness she moves to the spider. Glenrenil examines the remains to determine what type of spider it was, hoping to gain some insight into its social habits. She does not want to run into another one unprepared.

"My pleasure. Keeping everyone tip top is in my best interest, as well." Coramus gives Glenrenil a thin smile. He was kidding, right? Well, mostly.


It appears similar to a trapdoor spider which can burrow - though usually in more arid areas. Their lairs consist of an open hole usually constructed in areas where the ground is just firm enough to support some type of cover... a "trapdoor" to prevent debris from filling the lair, and to hide.
They are usually solitary... the larger they are, the more likely that is to be the case.

This breed seems particularly crafty. The now-crumbling entrance to its lair was very well disguised. The soil under the surface of the dry thicket looks like it was masticated then packed firm into walls with (essentially) a pit trap above.

The dry loose earth around the thicket has spilled into the now slightly discernible underground lair - like a small sinkhole in the shape of a "U" - the still-green bush in the center.
Hrafen and Glenrenil can see a bit of the unlit, caved-in area... the floor of the lair is about 12-15' down.

Male Human Paladin 3, HP: 26/26, AC: 16(18), Fort: +6, Ref: +3, Will: +6 (Horse HP:17 /17)

Vorik smiles at Vlad, "I just finished it off. You and Hrafen did most of the work." The paladin moves to the edge of the sinkhole and starts to ready his rope. "It looks like we'll need to climb a bit to search this creature's nest."

He works carefully to secure the rope and slowly drops into the spiders lair.

Take 20 to secure rope and climb down.

Vorik finds solid ground about fifteen feet down. There is enough debris crumbling from above to cover everything, but it can be be brushed aside enough to see what lies underneath with not too much effort.
There is room for a couple more down there to help searching if needed.


On both ends of the U-shaped lair, there are piles of bones and dirt-covered detritus pushed up against the walls. The bones which poke through the fallen earth are large enough to be human or from a creature of similar size.
At the bottom of the "U" there is a wide shallow alcove - a wide shelf which is flush with the floor. The cave wall angles outward directly above (like an eave) to prevent debris from falling in. It is difficult to see clearly at first (bringing light low enough), but you see a corpse in a dark robe lying prone.
I'll take a perception roll along with your next post please

Nothing is moving... other than a bit more loose dirt settling.
A quick search should take a few minutes.

"Easy there, big man, no need to go it alone." Vladimir says following the paladin down into the spider's lair.

After following Vorik, I assume his spoiler is fair game.

Reaching the bottom, Vladimir casts a light spell. "What do we have here?" he asks, noticing the robbed body.

Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (3) + 6 = 9

Coramus glances nervously at the giant spider corpse lying nearby, sweeping his eyes over the horizon to look for any eight-legged friends of the beast.
