DM Dan E’s Legacy of Fire (Inactive)

Game Master Dan E

Recruited to reclaim the town of Kelmarane from a tribe of gnolls, six adventurers find themselves caught up in a series of events that may change the face of Katapesh: the Legacy of Fire.


2,001 to 2,050 of 2,347 << first < prev | 36 | 37 | 38 | 39 | 40 | 41 | 42 | 43 | 44 | 45 | 46 | next > last >>

Sigh. Its one of those days. Zeladiel's post has reminded me that I've messed the initiative order up, why I can't say. He, Sajan and Grall should all be acting before the demon which will give Sajan at least a chance to grapple before it retreats. Take your actions and I'll re-do appropriately. Sorry all.


HP -12/64, AC 19/18/16 CMD 29, Speed 50 feet, F +8, R +8, W +11, P +12, In +4, AOO +12, EF 6/6, Ki 9/9

I did think it was strange I hadn't acted but I didn't really have time to check it.

Sajan moved up to the second creature and knocked it down with a powerful shove.

1d20 + 13 ⇒ (19) + 13 = 32 Trip

Not sure if I was close enough to flurry or not so i'll add another post or edit this one when DM confirms.


Its currently adjacent so flurry away. Just make me a reflex check for every hit (or likely hit) after the attack rolls.


HP -12/64, AC 19/18/16 CMD 29, Speed 50 feet, F +8, R +8, W +11, P +12, In +4, AOO +12, EF 6/6, Ki 9/9

Technically a total of 31 on the trip, forgot to include haste and forgot to take -2 penalty into account.

Having knocked the creature down, Sajan relentlessly pummeled it with his enchanted brass knuckles.

1d20 + 13 + 4 ⇒ (1) + 13 + 4 = 18
1d8 + 6 ⇒ (1) + 6 = 7
1d20 + 13 + 4 ⇒ (10) + 13 + 4 = 27
1d8 + 6 ⇒ (3) + 6 = 9
1d20 + 8 + 4 ⇒ (7) + 8 + 4 = 19
1d8 + 6 ⇒ (5) + 6 = 11

Reflex 1-
1d20 + 10 ⇒ (2) + 10 = 12
1d8 ⇒ 2 Acid damage

Reflex 2-
1d20 + 10 ⇒ (6) + 10 = 16
1d8 ⇒ 2 Acid damage


To clarify given my SNAFU, at the start of Zeladiel's action Nuveril and the prone Grall are adjacent to the demon, Sajan is a 5' step over Grall away.

Still hanging from the roof, Zeladiel launches two quick arrows which both finds the creature's chest but appear to do limited damage.Focused shot a standard right?

Sajan steps over the prostrate Grall, his powerful kick taking the demon from its feet. The monk manages to land several follow up punches but they seem to madden the creature rather than hurt it and Sajan takes several burns where his skin made contact. 4 acid damage to Sajan.

Hissing like a maddened (and very large and scary) cat, the demon gets back to his feet. Provokes AOOs from Sajan and Nuveril which I will resolve before the rest of its turn.


Female Halfling Barbarian (superstitious) 6 | hp 56/64 (68/76 raging)

Infuriated at the creature's narrow evasion of her last swing, Nuveril seizes the opportunity to punish it as it attempts to regain its feet, striking it solidly with her hammer.

Hammer 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (16) + 11 = 27 damage 1d6 + 9 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 9 + 2 = 16


Male HP(88/88 or 106*/106*) Gnoll Barbarian 6 - Invulnerable Rager

If it is prone next to grall he would change his tactics. I thought the creature was away so he cried out for healing...

Grall grabs his sword preparing his defenses and stands drawing it's wrath. Go total defense, +6 AC and stand provoking...

Rage Rounds: 6/18
HP: 5/86
AC: 22

The standing AOO:
+1 falchion enraged pwr atk vs prone 1d20 + 12 + 4 ⇒ (10) + 12 + 4 = 26 dam 2d4 + 14 ⇒ (3, 2) + 14 = 19


By the time your initiative comes around its prone adjacent but now with Sajan standing in your square, you could try a crawl back at that point although it will provoke at -4.


Male HP(88/88 or 106*/106*) Gnoll Barbarian 6 - Invulnerable Rager

Okay, go back to my original action then and delay...asking for healing.

4 acid damage to Sajan.

Is the damage not to the weapon he is using rather than Sajan himself?

1d20 + 17 ⇒ (6) + 17 = 23
1d8 + 6 ⇒ (5) + 6 = 11


hp 34/38; AC 17; Init +5 Male Elf Wizard (Evoker) 6

Yup, Focus shot is standard. Sorry. I'll save the 2nd arrow.
See, we screw up too. :-)


For an unarmed strike, which he is still doing with his knuckles as per day dot ruling, the damage is to him. Given the corner case I elected not to damage knuckles as well. Also gave him the benefit of the doubt on the trip if not grapple. Given that and your not managing to do much damage through its DR you may wish to alter action which will obviously adjust the sequence below.

The round update, we're in the demon's impulse as above.

Round 6

Initiative

Demon 16
Linah 13a
Khalid 13b
Nuveril 13c
Zeladiel 7a
Sajan 7b
Grall 6 (delaying)

Effects

- Haste (Zeladiel, Linah, Nuveril, Sajan) expires round 7
- Light (on Sajan)

Notes

- Note the light situation. Assume you have a small banked fire in the tomb room providing a little light. Darkness everywhere else. Light spell on Sajan.

Map to follow but positioning as above. Nuveril and Sajan adjacent with Grall lying prone under Sajan. Q,27 a passable square for an attack but moving through Nuveril or Sajan will squeezing provoke.

Nuveril's hammer finds the creatures side causing the first non-cosmetic wound. To the halfling's side, Sajan lands another punch but the demon's natural toughness and rapid healing clearly make it mostly resistant to the monk's attacks. Assuming you continue with the attack another DC 18 reflex save please.

Leaning back from the two warriors, the demon repeats the potent trick from earlier, another sphere of darkness coming into existence in the same area.

Reroll SLA defensive 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (13) + 9 = 22

In this temporal reality the demon has used a move action of course getting up so no running away through the sphere. Your up starting with Linah.

effects: light, haste

"Grall! Crawl out to me!" Linah cries out when the melee once again is swallowed in darkness. She rises her scimitar in defence and prepares to cast a spell of healing once Grall emerges from the darkness.

Standard action to delay casting Cure Serious Wounds on Grall once he is adjacent, 3d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 2, 6) + 6 = 20

Delay until I can move in for an attack or the darkness is removed.


hp 34/38; AC 17; Init +5 Male Elf Wizard (Evoker) 6

Round 6
Initiative 7a

"Nobody rush forward. There's now a pit behind the thing."

Zeladiel creates a pit in the last 10' of the corridor, hoping the creature took a step back away from Nuveril and Sajan.

Create Pit (Ref DC 16) - Q,R,25,26


Female Halfling Barbarian (superstitious) 6 | hp 56/64 (68/76 raging)

Free action to speak and find out if took a 5-foot-step or not

"Grall, has it moved?!?"


No! Grall grunts back.


Female Halfling Barbarian (superstitious) 6 | hp 56/64 (68/76 raging)

Hammer 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (5) + 9 = 14 damage 1d6 + 9 ⇒ (3) + 9 = 12 miss chance 1d100 ⇒ 66
Shield bash 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (13) + 9 = 22 damage 1d6 + 5 ⇒ (3) + 5 = 8 miss chance 1d100 ⇒ 56
Hammer 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (10) + 4 = 14 damage 1d6 + 9 ⇒ (2) + 9 = 11 miss chance 1d100 ⇒ 61
Hammer 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (14) + 9 = 23 damage 1d6 + 9 ⇒ (6) + 9 = 15 miss chance 1d100 ⇒ 73

No misses from concealment at least!


Male HP(88/88 or 106*/106*) Gnoll Barbarian 6 - Invulnerable Rager

It can crrrawl up walls easily, the pit will do no good. Grrrab it Sajan, it is rrright in frrront of you.

Crawling 5' is a full round action that provokes...pretty much has me screwed...was hoping Sajan was going to grappple the thing since I am the only one that can really harm it through its DR other than maybe Khalid...continuing to delay.

Qadira

HP: 39/42 AC: 23 (SoF) Init: +6 Kelishite Human Inquisitor 6

Provided I can roll worth a damn, with bane Khalid can get past the DR.


HP -12/64, AC 19/18/16 CMD 29, Speed 50 feet, F +8, R +8, W +11, P +12, In +4, AOO +12, EF 6/6, Ki 9/9

No change in actions.

1d20 + 9 ⇒ (15) + 9 = 24 Reflex (Success)

1d20 + 14 - 2 ⇒ (8) + 14 - 2 = 20 Trip (1st attack)
1d100 ⇒ 40 1-50 miss

1d20 + 14 - 2 ⇒ (15) + 14 - 2 = 27 Trip (2nd attack)
1d100 ⇒ 16 1-50 miss

1d20 + 14 - 2 ⇒ (14) + 14 - 2 = 26 Trip (3rd attack)
1d100 ⇒ 51 1-50 miss

Next attack assumes 26 is sufficient to trip.

1d20 + 8 + 4 ⇒ (12) + 8 + 4 = 24
1d100 ⇒ 16 1-50 miss


With noone but Grall able to see, Linah readies her spell while Khalid waits for an opening.

No waiting for Nuveril, the halfing testing out the demon's position with a few probing strikes before flurrying away with both hands. She manages to land strikes with both hammer and shield although the latter doesn't seem to deal any permanant injury. Both come away dripping in slime from the thing although the enchanted weapons seems resistant to the creature's natural acid. Not bothering with reflex checks in relation to items which are too hard to break.

Looking at the map there isn't really room to place the pit behind the demon, you've basically got a 10 x 10 area from Sajan-Nuveril to the lip of the pool. So enough place to put the pit (just) but it will get the demon and your front line will be at the risk of falling in. Assuming Zeladiel does not want to do that so will allow him the opportunity to change.


Male HP(88/88 or 106*/106*) Gnoll Barbarian 6 - Invulnerable Rager

Gralls patience finally snaps...he attacks the creature with everything he has as soon as it falls to the ground.
Comes off delay, grabs weapon and attacks.
+1 falchion enraged pwr atk Reckless Abandon 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (18) + 14 = 32 dam 2d4 + 14 ⇒ (3, 4) + 14 = 21

If it tries to stand, AOO:
+1 falchion enraged pwr atk Reckless Abandon 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (18) + 14 = 32 dam 2d4 + 14 ⇒ (2, 3) + 14 = 19

Potential crit:
+1 falchion enraged pwr atk Reckless Abandon 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (14) + 14 = 28 dam 2d4 + 14 ⇒ (1, 2) + 14 = 17 Confirms for 38 points!

2nd potential Crit:
+1 falchion enraged pwr atk Reckless Abandon 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (13) + 14 = 27 dam 2d4 + 14 ⇒ (4, 3) + 14 = 21 Confirms if it stands for 40 points!


Lets see if Zeladiel ends up dumping it in the pit before you (and Sajan) act...


hp 34/38; AC 17; Init +5 Male Elf Wizard (Evoker) 6

Zeladiel didn't know about the creature's climb ability, and if it was in front of the others, would certainly have tried to drop it. Unless the pit has to open up beneath his companions, I can't see any in game reason for him not to. Even if the others have to be caught on the edge they can step back as "any creature ending its turn on a square adjacent to the pit must make a Reflex saving throw with a +2 bonus to avoid falling into it."

Zeladiel casts create pit.


Zeladiel quickly casts his spell, the elven mage not needing to see to place his conjuration. Only Grall however can see the effect, the pit covering virtually all of the passage between Nuveril and Sajan to the lip before the pool.

The demon has very little place to go. It attempts to find purchase on a tiny strip of remaining ground near the eastern wall but doesn't quite make it. The rest of you hear its claws scrabbling to find a grip on the wall and the solid thump as it falls in.

Reflex 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (8) + 6 = 14 fail

DM:

Acrobatics to avoid 10' damage 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (2) + 11 = 13 fail

Damage 2d6 ⇒ (5, 1) = 6

Grall:

You see the demon land prone and exceedingly angry.

The mage shouts out to inform you what he has done. Each of Nuveril, Grall and Sajan can feel the ground immediately below them sloping down and each realises they will need to quickly move or risk a fall. Note it would be a 15' jump over the pit and water to the nearest post, the only real place to stand on the other side (unless you want to risk the water which you may recall was shallow here if possibly green slimely).

Sajan and Grall up, of course will allow each to repost based on change in circumstances.


HP -12/64, AC 19/18/16 CMD 29, Speed 50 feet, F +8, R +8, W +11, P +12, In +4, AOO +12, EF 6/6, Ki 9/9

Sajan attempted to leap to the nearest post past the pit and continue moving along them until he was clear of the darkness.

Don't believe there are any acrobatic DC's higher than Sajan's auto-pass here.


Sajan has to jump to a post he can't presently see so lets call it a DC 20 (15 + 5) including darkness penalty to dex. Second one along outside the sphere.


HP -12/64, AC 19/18/16 CMD 29, Speed 50 feet, F +8, R +8, W +11, P +12, In +4, AOO +12, EF 6/6, Ki 9/9

Sajan has +25 to acrobatics checks when jumping and is always considered as having a running start. Minus his dexterity bonus, thats +23 and still auto-pass. With the extra ten feet of movement provided by haste (i'd forget to change his speed value to 50), thats +27 with no dex bonus.


Not deterred in the slightest by being unable to see his landing spot, Sajan launches himself through the air, hitting the centre of the near post. Barely pausing, he shifts direction 90', hopping neatly to the next post along and emerging from the sphere.

Grall.


OK a bit early but without an available target I think Grall's move is obvious and I'm going to move things along.

With the demon out of his reach, Grall manages to bank his rage enough to move to Linah and accept healing, the powerful spell closing the worst of the barbarian's wounds.

Having some trouble with the campaign site which wasn't allowing me to upload the map last night. Think you have the positioning fairly clear in any event and hopefully will fix shortly.

Round 7

Initiative

Demon 16
Khalid 13a (delaying)
Nuveril 13b
Zeladiel 7a
Sajan 7b
Grall 6a
Linah 6b

Effects

- Haste (Zeladiel, Linah, Nuveril, Sajan) expires after Zeladiel's action
- Light (on Sajan)

Notes

- Note the light situation. Assume you have a small banked fire in the tomb room providing a little light. Darkness everywhere else. Light spell on Sajan. Darkness sphere in original location. Sajan just beyond the fringe of this.
- Anyone ending their turn next to the pit must make a reflex check to avoid falling in. Currently this is Nuveril.

Up to Khalid to come off delay or allow the demon to act.

Qadira

HP: 39/42 AC: 23 (SoF) Init: +6 Kelishite Human Inquisitor 6

Without a target or anyway to dispel the darkness, I will continue to delay.


From the sound and hissing the demon is trying to climb out of the pit but Grall is too far away to see how far it manages to get.

DM only:

Climb 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (5) + 11 = 16

Your up starting with Nuveril but with lesser chance of interaction you may all want to post actions and we can adjust as necessary.


Male HP(88/88 or 106*/106*) Gnoll Barbarian 6 - Invulnerable Rager

Yes, Grall would have moved to healing dropping out of rage after it.


Grall wrote:

Assumed you'd stay in it but OK..

Grall's whole body spasms alarmingly as he releases his rage, Linah's spell enough to keep him on his feet.


Female Halfling Barbarian (superstitious) 6 | hp 56/64 (68/76 raging)

"Damn it, elf, I had it," Nuveril shouts in frustration, "before you dropped it in a hole! Someone strike a light before we are all torn to pieces in the darkness!"

Now that Sajan's on the other side of the darkness, none of the rest of us can see, whether we're within the sphere or not, right, since he has the only light? Might as well keep standing here and try to knock the thing back in the hole if it climbs out, since there's nowhere to go and and not be blind.

Rage round 14/16; Delay.

Round 6
Power Attack, haste, Witch Hunter
AC 16 (blinded), Touch AC 14, Con damage 2

Assume I can put off the Reflex save until I actually act and end my turn, although it would seem like cheating to just Delay round after round and never risk falling in. Surely it won't come to that. Haste ends on Zeladiel's turn this round or last round?


You'll need to make a save a round although you could delay til the end of the round. You really don't want to end up prone in the pit with it :) Haste expires after Zeladiel's action.


Here is the MAP prior to Grall's move.


HP -12/64, AC 19/18/16 CMD 29, Speed 50 feet, F +8, R +8, W +11, P +12, In +4, AOO +12, EF 6/6, Ki 9/9

Sajan hops over the posts to get a little space from the darkness.

T30.

In position, Sajan awaited the demon...

Readied action.


hp 34/38; AC 17; Init +5 Male Elf Wizard (Evoker) 6

Zeladiel ignores Nuveril's remarks, knowing Grall will live. Moving carefully forward (M25), Zeladiel pulls his trusty claw footed wand and waves it into the darkness.

summon monster II


Up to Grall/Linah. Not sure if they've been waiting for confirmation that they should post.

Nuveril waits where she is, leaning backwards and lowering her centre of gravity in an attempt to avoid sliding into the pit with the frenzied demon. Zeladiel focuses on his wand, his speed spell running it course, while Sajan moves further on, ready for the demon if it emerges.

Grall and Linah to finish the round.


Male HP(88/88 or 106*/106*) Gnoll Barbarian 6 - Invulnerable Rager

Grall barely standing, seems to wait for Linah to act, hoping for more healing... Delay until Linah goes and then will act.

Rage Rounds: 5/18
HP: 35/70
AC: 18
Linah, BTW I think you are missing your domain power you got at 6th for healing.
"Healer's Blessing (Su): At 6th level, all of your cure spells are treated as if they were empowered, increasing the amount of damage healed by half (+50%). This does not apply to damage dealt to undead with a cure spell. This does not stack with the Empower Spell metamagic feat."
I added 10 more to my cure for it.

Linah almost looses her footing when time screeches to a halt as Zeladiel's haste spell disappates. With her last spell of healing curing the most serious of Grall's wounds the young cleric moves casts a quick spell to bolsten her allies. "Khalid, Zeladiel, cast light! None of us can see" she then cries out to her companions.

Standard action to cast Bless


Linah should certainly be adding her empower. Grall is up again.


Male HP(88/88 or 106*/106*) Gnoll Barbarian 6 - Invulnerable Rager

Sorry, Grall will delay until after the creatures turn, want to see what it is going to do and I can tell the others.


Female Halfling Barbarian (superstitious) 6 | hp 56/64 (68/76 raging)

Reflex 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (14) + 10 = 24 Still delaying.


Round 8

Initiative

Demon 16
Khalid 13a (delaying)
Nuveril 13b (delaying)
Zeladiel 7a (casting summon monster II)
Sajan 7b
Grall 6a (delaying)
Linah 6b

Effects

- Light (on Sajan)
- Fatigued (Grall)

Notes

- Note the light situation. Assume you have a small banked fire in the tomb room providing a little light. Darkness everywhere else. Light spell on Sajan. Darkness sphere in original location. Sajan just beyond the fringe of this.
- Anyone ending their turn next to the pit must make a reflex check to avoid falling in. Currently this is Nuveril.

DM only:

Climb 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (2) + 11 = 13
Climb 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (20) + 11 = 31

Nuveril easily keeps her balance while Grall sees the creature climbing the far wall of the pit ie the water/Sajan side away from Nuveril. It has made it a little over half way (the pit is 20' deep). The barbarian yells this out to the group.

Your up, order not so important, key is what happens before its next action when it can conceivably climb out. Grall's instructions are pinpointing its square for you more or less although miss chances and the like obviously still applying.


OK assuming continued delays from Nuveril, Khalid and Grall with Sajan readying. So any actions from Linah and Zeladiel pls (with the later finishing his summoning).


Female Halfling Barbarian (superstitious) 6 | hp 56/64 (68/76 raging)

Once Grall tells everyone the demon's climbing up the far side, Nuveril will get off the lip of the pit and not risk another Reflex save. Was waiting to see if Khalid would listen to Linah and cast a light, however, so we have somewhere not-blind to regroup. If we're going to stay in the dark, she'll just take a 5-foot-step back.


hp 34/38; AC 17; Init +5 Male Elf Wizard (Evoker) 6

Round 8
Initiative 7a

Zeladiel finishes the summoning and Grall sees another small bird-like cloud appear.
"I can't see it but I know where it is..."
Still on the roof, Zeladiel takes another step forward (N26) drawing his diamond topped elemental rod. He then hurls a bright blue bead into the bottom of his pit where it explodes in a white flash of cold.

fireball (Ref DC 17, cold) 6d6 + 3 ⇒ (5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 4) + 3 = 35

He then turns to the elemental.

Auran:
"Stop the demon escaping the pit."

The creature flies into the pit and turns into a whirlwind.

(I'll let Dan figure out how that works... :-)
