Camillo continues moving to rejoin the group at the front door. If he gets there with an action left, he will join the magus in attacking the new ghoul using his arcane strike even as the flash of Vidar's ray leaves an afterimage in his retina.
If attack is possible
Attack: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (16) + 6 = 22
Damage: 1d8 + 6 ⇒ (4) + 6 = 10
Rullis digs into his scroll case and withdraws a scroll. He prepares to cast it upon Kithian if the spellcaster shows his face. He doesn't want to waste it if he doesn't. He'll follow Kithian if he advances.
Ready to cast Silence to Kithian. This would create a 20-foot radius area around the barbarian where all sound would be cancelled for 3 rounds.
The hope here is the barbarian will engage the spellcaster in melee, nullifying his spellcasting.
SAyniek reaches the top of the stairs to see a dog summoned forth and Rullis preparing a spell via a scroll. Kithian. You have a dog...now what :p
Cristiel turns and offers a wide blow but Cam charges from the hallway and lunges at the creature with a solid strike. The ghoul offers a sort of empty wail scream type noise at the violence and turns its attention on the bard.
That attention proves useless as the ghoul finds no flesh for all of its flailing about.
I need next steps from Kithian, downstairs block can roll up actions in the mean time.
If possible, Camillo will position himself to flank the undead creature with Cristiel, and attack again when the magus is in position.
"Divide its attention with me, lady warrior. Vidar, I am not versed in these things, but I thought they only rose after burial on the night of a full moon or something like that. Isn't he a bit precocious?"
Attack: 1d20 + 6 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 6 + 2 = 13 Including the hoped-for flank bonus
Damage: 1d8 + 6 + 1d6 ⇒ (1) + 6 + (6) = 13 Including sneak attack and arcane strike
Ugh. Hopefully Cristiel can use the flank since I apparently flubbed the attack.
The limpy tin can continues to get to the fighting.
Growling: If everyone else would slow down it would make things much easier.
Move/double move to get to the combat. Not sure if I am within 20' yet to attack. I will charge if that is an option, then I can attack from 40'.
Yeeaaahhh Sayniek is in the wrong part of the group to get her fight on. Currently she is watching the barb tell a dog to go snuffling about...
Cam barely misses the ghoul as it thrashes about attempting to find its footing but Cristiel and the bard have done good work surrounding it. Reggie growls fiercely but seems unwilling to take a bite. And who would blame him really?
Sayniek arrives up the steps to see Kithian, the new dog, and Rullis.
The dog takes off with the command and starts snuffling about, leading on down the hallway and (I assume you follo) around the corner. The corner ends in a dead end with a single door that leads "in" to the center of the building much like the downstairs. Kithian cannot quite make it to the door to see what the dog is barking at.
Cristiel, Vidar, Rullis.
Effects: Shield, Ghoul fever
Cristiel calms her breathing against the rising anger at the ghast fleeing into the night. Anger makes a soldier's work sloppy; a saying her father had taught her over a century ago. Regaining her center, the elven woman slides the fingers of her free hand down Manartyelo's length as she dips her head slightly at the rising ghoul, "No more time for regrets, lost soul. Now is the moment of release. Go in peace." With the part-prayer, part-eulogy finished, Cristiel sweeps her sword out at the ghoul's neck.
Manartyelo Attack vs Ghoul Guard: 1d20 + 9 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 9 + 2 = 16
Manartyelo Damage vs Ghoul Guard: 1d6 + 5 ⇒ (3) + 5 = 8
The wizard cast two spells in two rounds? That didn't happen. I couldn't have missed that...*looks back in thread* Oh....uh...
Emblazoned in fire and burning the ghoul is sent to final rest s Manartyelo cuts the ghoul down. Actually the searing ray did the job well before the melee people but because I don't notice things we get to chock it up as a "team" kill. LOL
As a side note Tirion has skill focus and a trait or two bolstering THAT particular skill. That one has been playing "talking meat puppet" with his dead archer over in LOF. *shakes head*
Mhmm just realized that Rullis was prepped to cast, so I will assume he rushes after Kithian (although ends up a bit behind.)
All is quiet in the foyer as the the living guard and farmer look about in fear. Upstairs (I assume) Kithian approaches the hall way with Rullis in tow and Sayniek a few feet behind. The barbarian sees his summoned animal snuffling about the doorway and whining. On his approach he sees the interior doorway leads to another interior hall with a series of three doors on each side and a door at the end of the hall. Clearly these are cells.
So we will assume a round passes to establish that it is quiet and now you guys can act.
Cristiel wipes her blade clean on the burnt shirt of the dead guard turned ghoul before looking to Cam, "Are the rest of the dead silenced down below?" Meanwhile, she stalks back over to the open door into the rainy night, once more taking watch beside it. She spares the mass of the giant ghoul a brief look before gazing back into the darkness, "When next we meet, the fallen one is mine. I shall no longer suffer him to exist."
"Let us close and bar this door, whatever else may pass this night, I would prefer no more foe would sneak up on us this way."
Wiggling his finger rapidly and blowing on them, like the heat from his spell had singed his fingers, Vidar does not quite manage to supress a pleased smirk.
My magic prowess is growing...
Seeing the Assimar scanning the room, he decides he should do the same. Putting the scroll back in its case, he begins chanting, holds his spear tightly, and advances into the room.
Cast Detect Magic, move into the room as necessary to ensure every portion of the room is scanned within the spell's range and try to penetrate through the doors, recasting as necessary.
If he is here and invisible, he'll likely have magical items on him that will radiate auras.
You should detect his invisibility spell, too, if there's one in effect.
Camillo shrugs. "The ogre ghouls have fallen, but there was a spellcaster that cast a spell and disappeared. The others are searching for him, but we could hear fighting down here and I came to assist. There is another one out there?"
