DM Devon's RotRL aka "The Heroes of Sandpoint"

Game Master PirateDevon

Something sinister is happening in Sandpoint and only our heroes can stop it. See what happens when a group loses DM after DM and yet the heroes forge on!


3,651 to 3,700 of 5,860 << first < prev | 69 | 70 | 71 | 72 | 73 | 74 | 75 | 76 | 77 | 78 | 79 | next > last >>

Cam go ahead and roll perception on the next door...


Rullis chuckles at Kithian's comment. "I don't think those are the nice girls."

"Oh, I don't know about that.
There was this one...ahem! Moving on."


Male Human Samurai2 AC 18/11/16, HP 19/19Conditions: Nil, F5/R2/W1+2vs Mind Effecting

Toshio ignores the banter and remains focused. It was not the time for such discussion.


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

Darn tootin'! 'cause Camillo just failed a Perception roll and things are about to get exciting!


Male Half-Elf Paladin 3

Kerrec listens to the banter, thinking the new cathedral in Sandpoint might have a couple customers in the next few days looking to remove a disease or two.

The final sentence that Vidar translated troubles him as well. Thinking out loud as Camillo checks the door. "I am wondering if whatever was taken to their graves has caused them to rise again as the undead we destroyed earlier. I worry there might me be more of them in this complex."


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 4

Shaking of the embarrassment of having said a little too much, Vidars mind snaps to at the idea put forward by Kerrec.

"An excellent thought master Valorian, undeads mostly fall under the purvey of clerics, so I am not sure about the facts, but I would postulate that they COULD have been created as guardians OR risen due to the great emotional stress being left here to die could have caused them."

Pulling at his beard, Vidar frowns.
"What say you learned men of religion? Do we have the resources needed to fight more undead? I understand that certain undeads are only harmed by weapons imbued with a blessing of good energy...or made from silver."


The chitter chatter continues and as Camillo makes his jest he lazily looks the door over and finds nothing.

Opening the door you see a room feature raised marble tables. On some of these tables are remains on the other there look to be objects. Neither are easy to discern from the doorway.

The jokes continue until the conversation turns to the undead when a sudden grinding sound fills the chamber. The coin column is rising and before it (on your side) stands a tall red skinned creature with a barbed beard and a wicked glaive. The room stinks of sulfur and the creature hisses at the group. Like This

KNo:Religion DC 15:
Bearded Devil. DR 5/good or silver; Immune fire, poison; Resist acid 10, cold 10; SR 16. They can summon other devils and will if they think they are losing.

Kno Religion DC 20:
They can be bargained with though usually need sacrifices. Their glaives cause persistent wounds that fester and bleed unless healed. They also can teleport usually only once a day and will most likely do this to run until the summoning effect runs out.

Kno Arcana DC 20:
A summon trap. Good news is the spell is usually as though cast by a wizard which means you don necessarily need to kill the creature, just not die in the next minute or so.

Wohoo!


Know(Religion): 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9 Pathetic

As the conversation continues with Vidar and Kithian, "If we do run into any more undead, I should be able bless your weapon again... LIKE THIS!" With a foul beast appearing in the air before him, Rullis reacts with the one thing currently on his mind.

Since we were talking as Cam was checking things out, I'd assume I'd be standing next to Kithian and Vidar. Cast Magic Weapon and touch Kithian's blade.

Kithian:+1 Enchantment Bonus to Attack and Damage rolls for 3 minutes.


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

Kithian's still carrying Camillo's enchanted longsword. Maybe Toshio's?


If that's the case and if the DM rules I am too far from Toshio to touch his weapon in a surprise round, I'll just scream like a little girl as it appears and try to zap it, striking the wall behind the thing.

Potential Lightning Arc attack (Ranged Touch w/ Precise/Point-Blank): 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7


Male Half Orc Barbarian 3 / Oracle 1, Perception +5, Darkvision, Fort +6/ Ref +1/ Will +2, Init +4, AC 18, HP :47

Kithian roars and takes the longsword in both hands and charges the ...thing.

1d20 + 6 ⇒ (7) + 6 = 13
1d10 + 6 ⇒ (10) + 6 = 16

With a yell and charge forward Kithian brings down the bard's longsword with a vicious overhand chop. Mortal foes would surely have been felled with the blow but the devil steps with the swing. Though the blade scraps against the creatures skin, the damage seems far less effective then any of you might normally believe.

The devil offers a hissing cackle of its own and begins to fight with the barbarian, viciously stabbing and swinging the filthy glaive it bears in its hand. Kithian is able to turn one blow, and another as the melee reaches high intensity even as it has just begun. Despite this a strong arcing blow from the glaive slices into Kithian's chest, unhindered by any of his natural defenses save his supernatural barbarian rage. The blade leaves a jagged wound that gushes with blood. Kithian take 16 - DR, you now have a bleeding wound, -2HP every round. (Note that your DR will affect this too)

The devil laughs as it sees the damage it has done.

Allowing Rullis to touch his scabbared sword, Toshio quick draws the now enchanted blade and closes with the fiend, flanking with Kithian.

2 handed Power Attack, flanking 1d20 + 8 + 2 - 1 ⇒ (13) + 8 + 2 - 1 = 22

Cam and Vidar are up first, even before the above two attacks...

Stepping back away from this thing, Rullis begins chanting and waving his right arm while holding his long spear in his left. Out of thin air, a glowing trident spear appears in his right hand and he thrusts it forward at the beast. It bounces off the creature's hide and comes back to Rullis, hovering in the air next to him.

Move: Move back, about 10 feet behind Kithian.

Just a friendly reminder that if anyone else can make those knowledge checks it will help Kerrec with his decisions in this fight. Knowing is half the battle!

GI JOE!!

Knowledge reilgion: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6

Why he no fall down?


Yeah you guys are not doing so hot on the skill checks...mwaahaahaa. Just keeping hitting it, it will die eventually right?


Kerrec considering your background and the whole "demon hunter" thing, you may not know *exactly* what this thing is but you would know that it is evil and smiting it would wreck its face and that most demons/devils have immunities to mundane sources of damage...also, for the love of all that is good put a rank in Kno:Religion, you're a Paladin! :p


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 4

Knowledge Arcana: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (4) + 10 = 14

"Damnit, where in the nine hells did this thing come from?
...
That was a rethorical question by the way."

Not having a lot of offensive magic left, Vidar begins to dig around for the wand.

Using his free hand he touches Kerrec and improves the paladins agility.
+2 Dex for one round


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

I'm not familiar with the glaive's stats - is it a reach weapon? Can it be used against adjacent foes?

Camillo spends his turn starting to inspire courage and readying weapon and shield.


With Inspire Courage started at the end of the surprise round, all of the attacks above get an additional +1 to attack and damage!


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

Oops, forgot it's a surprise round. No weapon-readying yet.


Male Half-Elf Paladin 3

Kerrec was not the most studious lad when it came to certain areas. He is thinking that he should buff up on such things once things are cleared up here.

Kerrec, nodding a thank you to Vidar and feeling a little more nimble, moves to a spot where the creature does not have any cover and takes aim at it "Back to the abyss with you!"

Attack w/ Smite: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (18) + 10 = 28
Damage w/ Smite: 1d8 + 1d6 + 9 ⇒ (5) + (6) + 9 = 20

Conditions w/ Smite & Vidar's spell: +4 to AC vs. this creature


Cam you're a jerk. I frickin hate poelarms. ;p So my bad. I will reroll the attack with his other "weapon". Im right in the middle of something so it may be AM before I get my revised post up.


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

It was just a couple of simple questions, really. I hope this does not reflect poorly on my future survival... ;-)


GM Screen:

1d20 + 10 ⇒ (3) + 10 = 13

It almostseems as though Kithian will take a nasty strike but fails to make his mark with a lashing claw as the barbarian closes the gap. *Shakes fist at Camillo*

Cam touches Toshio, enhancing the samurai's sword and Vidar puts a hand to Kerrec granting the paladin greater agility. Rullis summons a weapon of Gozreh's spiritual might but the trident fails to strike the creature.

Barbarian and samurai maneuver in tandem the last 36 hours presenting them ample opportunity to practice against powerful foes as they flank and press their advantage. Swords fly at the beast and blades bite deep but in neither case as deeply or as completely as they should.

Kerrec calls on the power of Abadar to guide him and the god grants his champion a boon. Alight with the feeling of Abadar's will Kerrec lines a solid shot on the devil and lets fly with is bolt, Back to the abyss with you! The bolt lands with its characteristic *thunk* and hissing sizzle of magical energy can be heard in the din of battle.

The devil grunts in pain and yells in fury. Throwing its glaive to the ground it presses in to the half orc with its clawed hands.

GM Screen:

1d20 + 10 ⇒ (20) + 10 = 30
1d20 + 10 ⇒ (1) + 10 = 11

1d20 + 10 ⇒ (19) + 10 = 29

2d6 + 8 + 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (5, 2) + 8 + (6) + 4 = 25

The claws rake against Kithian's flesh and the tight quarters of the attack see the devil's sharp and filth covered beard scrape and jab at the barbarian too. Vicious in its assault the devil is able to make many wounds on Kithian in exchange for the abuse it has received. Kithian take 26 from 3 attacks( to 23) so you should be at 18

"Enjoy your time here, when you get back to hell, tell them WE sent you!"
Vidar, having observed the effect of Kerrec's bolt have quickly surmised that he stands the best chance of defeating this menace and so focus on enhancing his agility once more.
+2 Dex for 1 round.
After that, he tactically shifts behind Kerrec, realizing that he himself has the LEAST chance to do any good.

Kithian grunts, his face still twisted with rage, and continues to press the attack.

Power Attack: 1d20 + 8 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 8 + 2 = 22

Damage: 1d8 + 13 ⇒ (4) + 13 = 17


Watching the devil beast tear into Kithian, Rullis chants and draws upon the blessing of Gozreh to bring forth healing energy. He steps forth and lays a healing hand on the raging man's shoulder, trying to avoid getting hit as the barbarian swings his blade in combat.

Convert Bless to Cure Light Wounds, 5ft step forward, touch Kithian. 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (3) + 3 = 6

The hovering trident thrusts forward once again under its own accord...

Trident Attack (Round 2 of 3): 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (15) + 6 = 21
Spiritual Weapon Damage: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2 Damnit!


Male Human Samurai2 AC 18/11/16, HP 19/19Conditions: Nil, F5/R2/W1+2vs Mind Effecting

Toshio was secretly wondering what made the barbarian such a more appealing target and decided it must be all the yelling he did. Swiftly, silently the Samurai drew his Katana, low and wide hoping to disembowel the devil.

2handed Power Attack1d20 + 8 + 2 - 1 ⇒ (5) + 8 + 2 - 1 = 14
Damage1d8 + 4 + 1 + 3 ⇒ (1) + 4 + 1 + 3 = 9


Male Half-Elf Paladin 3

Kerrec, looking to end the battle, loads his crossbow. A small smile appears across his face and he looks at Vidar with confidence before he turns toward the creature and aims right between its eyes.

Attack w/ Smite: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (11) + 10 = 21
Damage w/ Smite: 1d8 + 1d6 + 5 ⇒ (8) + (4) + 5 = 17

Conditions w/ Smite & Vidar's spell: +4 to AC vs. this creature

Checking making sure everyone remembered to include the bonus from inspire courage...


Male Half Orc Barbarian 3 / Oracle 1, Perception +5, Darkvision, Fort +6/ Ref +1/ Will +2, Init +4, AC 18, HP :47

ooops


I did not include it. Does that apply to spiritual weapon attacks?


Male Human Samurai2 AC 18/11/16, HP 19/19Conditions: Nil, F5/R2/W1+2vs Mind Effecting

No.


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

It applies to the attack roll, not to the damage.

a +1 competence bonus on attack and weapon damage rolls


With spells flying to the aid of the combatants, Toshio and Kithian continue to lay into the demon with strike after strike and though the blows due less than they should the creature still takes many wounds and is obviously on the defensive.

Kerrec lines a shot to end the beast with a bolt to the brain but at the last second, in the whirling melee the bolt flies just off of its target striking with a resound *Crraack* into the left curved horn of the demon. The creature wails in anguish as it claws at those close to it.

Black ichor bleeds from the horn and the myriad wounds the devil now carries. Pressing its hands to the deepest of its wounds it draws itself back from the fight long enough to look through the chaos at Kerrec.

Its speaks words that are a twisted and dark language, the very sound of it a glimpse to the darkness of the nether realms. Yet each of you can hear in your head the rumbling translation of the words into a harsh and sharply spoken common.

Son of Abadar you face is known to me. Hell shall return to exact a terrible vengeance for the harm done to me. Your name shall be mine.

With that the creature offers another shudder of sorts and it is gone, a faint wisp of smoke and brimstone all that is left where the devil once stood.


Rullis turns and looks around, half expecting the creature to reappear and strike from behind. The floating, semi-transparent trident fades from view as it has no further target to strike. "I have a bad feeling about this."


Male Half-Elf Paladin 3

Kerrec looks surprised as the demon points him out and then vanishes.

He looks at the others with conviction. "Abadar's name is a curse in that creature's realm. It is good they fear The Judge of Gods and His followers."


Well to be fair you were, in fact, raining down holy electrical judgement on him. Its one thing to have a samurai and barb beating on you its a whole other thing to have some a&&!+&# pinging you with god bolts from across the room. You got his attention is all ;p


Male Half Orc Barbarian 3 / Oracle 1, Perception +5, Darkvision, Fort +6/ Ref +1/ Will +2, Init +4, AC 18, HP :47

Kithian looks down at the claw marks and demon gore covering his blade then over at the paladin. "He jumps on me like a cat with a scratching post, I slice it up pretty good if I say so myself, and you get the hatred 'cuse you shot him once. Once." The half orc's face breaks into a large smile as he begins to chuckle before continueing.
"Works for me! I would hate knowing somewhere a demon is pissed off enough to just pop in for a visit. Don't worry though, he will propably only kill ya once."


Male Half-Elf Paladin 3

Kerrec counts two shots on the demon but decides to keep such information to himself, as this dark work is not a competition. He shrugs at the Shoanti's second statement. "I have sacrificed much to prepare for such a thing. But I hope to have you at my side when that day comes. My life would already be forfeit if not for your blade."


With the threat gone, Rullis relaxes a bit and simply states, "Anyone beside Kithian wounded?" Without really waiting for an answer, Rullis begins chanting, sending a wave of healing energy over the party.
