A voice echoes from seemingly in the middle of the group. BECAUSE you are a fool wizard!
A large creature of black skin and red eyes featuring long sinewy batlike wings and a somewhat overly elongated humanoid like body rises from below the open area of the tower and hovers level with group though outside normal reach distance in the air. The creature utters a below at the group.
Will save: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (18) + 6 = 24
"Oh please, who is the fool here? Attacking us with Mere Illusions and calling me a fool?"
"If that is the best you have to offer, kindly fall upon your own blade to spare yourself the dishonour and us the trouble of finding your craven heart to cut it out and show it to you."
Wil save:1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (16) + 2 + 2 = 20
Kithian grins and summons a dog that resembles Reggie, his beloved mastif.
"Looks like you found a kindred spirit my friend. Maybe you two will talk each other to death! Find that bastach boy!"
Will: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (15) + 11 = 26
Seeing the horror from the lower planes, Sayniek blinks twice. As she does so, she notes the faint flicker and blurriness about the edges of the creature. As she notes this, she hears Vidar call out that the creature is actually an illusion. Deciding to try to trick the creature, Sayniek pretends to advance to face the illusion, while simultaneously scanning for the presence of evil in the area.
Pretend to attack - actually use Detect Evil and scan.
Man this s$+$ is nasty sorry for the delay
Sayniek detects evil for sure and Kithian's summoned hound starts to survey the area in earnest though it proves to be moot as suddenly the lamia is exposed.
Vidar catches the flutter of movement all too late, the damnable creature, though invisible to the others, had hidden above him in the rafters and crooks. Descending upon the wizard he is too slow to avoid the nasty barbed spear in the snake woman's hand and she falls upon him. Vidar takes 15
To the others her arrival is sudden and multiple. As the invisibility fades where there should stand one there stands four of her. Her snakelike body moves counter to her angular arms and whip like hair creating quite menacing effect...
Xanesha for those wanting a better idea...Group is up.
"Vidar! There's four of her!"
Acrobatics to move close enough to threaten, in a potential flank with Kithian if at all possible: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (15) + 11 = 26 AC 26 while moving due to Mobility if he failed to avoid the AoO
He uses a standard action to start inspiring courage. +1 to hit and damage
She has reach and a simple step will not help you as she closed to 5'. She can threaten 5' and 10'.
The lamia laughs at Kithian, or rather the various lamia laugh at Kithain as he swings at the nearest version of her and cannot even seem to land a blow.
Seeing the wizard suddenly get attacked, Sayniek moves in with her sword raised.
Begone vile creature. Ragathiel shall smite you down and all of your kind.
Swift - Smite Evil (AC31 vs Xanesha)
She then swings her sword in the hope of bringing the vile creature down.
Attack(bastard sword): 1d20 + 10 + 4 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 10 + 4 + 1 = 17 <-- +4 smite, +1 inspire courage
Damage: 1d8 + 2 + 2 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 2 + 2 + 1 = 10 <-- +2 smite, +2 str, +1 inspire courage
Unfortunately, her challenge is less effective than hoped and misses by a wide margin.
Vidar grunts in pain, but despite his beard now being stained with blood, he manages a grin.
"Hah...made...made you come out."
We have to get rid of those illusions quickly...
Using his wand of magic missile, Vidar fires of two bolts at two different images as he retreats a little.
5' step back, using wand of magic missile. Since it's a spell trigger item, no AoO
Magic missile #1: 1d4 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5
Magic missile #2: 1d4 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3
Oh yeah you are right, for some reason I have been walking around thinking it was within 4.
One image disappears from Kithian's blow. Another one from one of Vidar's missile. Another hits its mark however and the lamia hisses in irritation more than anything. Sayniek misses by a wide margin. Two version of the lamia still remain...
The snake woman turns her attention on Vidar, apparently thinking him the biggest concern at the moment. The elaborate crystal and gold mask upon her face humming and then emitting a bright green flash at the wizard...DC 15 Fort save please or be petrified for 1 minute.
Group is up after that...
