Half-Elf Spirit Ranger 8 (HP 68/68; F+8, R+8, W+4 (+1 vs. Arcane); AC 19/12/17; Perception +15, Sense Motive +2, Initiative +2)

"Fine, we can follow logic. Allow Dantrian back. If he's in there like you say, give him control. He's always managed the curse, managed you before. He can do it here, now." He voice grows uncertain. "I know he can."


Male Fetchling (World Walker) Swashbuckler (Inspired Blade) 8 [ HP 62/76 | AC 22/16T/14FF | Fort +4, Ref +10, Will +1 | Init +6 (+2 with panache) | Perception +10 | Panache: 4/4 ]

Drosil's grey face grows visibly pale as he witnesses Dantrian's transformation into...Feral? Not a name I'd wish my companions use to describe me. The term itself implies that...he? It? I'm so confused. Anyway, it implies a lack of morality; a struggle for survival, regardless of the cost. Is that, as Anton said, what we need now? He shakes his head, trying to make sense of it all. This...thing...has been aware of us, lurking inside Dantrian for almost as long as I've known him. I'll admit, it gave Dantrian considerable power, and now that it's here, its power may be all the greater. Anton may be right, in that case. Still, can we trust it? The look on Anton's face...it must be evil; seems to me that we can't be sure, no matter what it says, that it won't decide it's done with us after all. What do we do then?

He sighs. "Anton, I trust your judgement in this. You say we need this...thing? Very well." He turns to Feral. "You say we can trust you not to go slitting our throats, or gutting us, or what have you? Fine. We'll fight with you, let you play your part, but don't you ever expect us to trust you, not after the Hell you've put Dantrian through these past months. If you require our trust, you let Dantrian exert control whenever he wishes it, and we will trust him."

Feral shakes his head at Janos and Drosil's sentiments, "Much as I would like to put your concerns to rest so easily, that's not how this works, it seems. It- how can I put this, it seems to take some time to muster the strength for he and I to exchange places." He sighs then, turning back to look at the stairs and the sentries waiting upon the roof. As he does so, Mosswick flits into view, a terrified look on his little face, but he nods at the wolf's words, his eyes large and sad.
Feral continues, seemingly unaware of the homunculus, "I had hoped for a warmer reception, but it seems my hopes were misplaced. Alas. If you don't believe me now, perhaps you'll come to accept the truth of what I say in time: I care about each of you and for Dantrian. If I can protect any of you, I will. And as uncomfortable as it may make you now, you must see that in protecting me you also protect Dantrian. Is that not something each of us here desires?"

He waves the question away before anyone can answer and points to the stairs. "Do you trust me enough to attempt to parley as Ashan suggested? Or would you rather we jumped straight into the inevitable violence that's before us?"


Male Human Paladin 8 | HP 68| AC 18 FF 15 T13 | Saves +11/+10/+10 | Init + 4 | Percep + 2 | Dip +14 | SM +10 | KR +6 | Heal +3 | HA +7 | HePo =2

Violence should never be inevitable, nor embraced so easily. You try to parley and let's see if there is truth to your words.

Anton nocks a silver arrow and leans against a tree, drawing a bead on the wolves atop the temple.


Half-Elf Spirit Ranger 8 (HP 68/68; F+8, R+8, W+4 (+1 vs. Arcane); AC 19/12/17; Perception +15, Sense Motive +2, Initiative +2)

Janos steps back from the wolf. He levels his sword at Feral. "Go then. Get them to let us inside the shrine." He glances at Anton, clearly showing doubt on his face.


Male Human Paladin 8 | HP 68| AC 18 FF 15 T13 | Saves +11/+10/+10 | Init + 4 | Percep + 2 | Dip +14 | SM +10 | KR +6 | Heal +3 | HA +7 | HePo =2

Anton sees the look Janos gives him out the of corner of his eye and he doesn't need magic to read the doubt there.

I don't know what I'm doing Janos. Pray Desna, I didn't just make a huge mistake sending that thing out there.


Base Str Mutagen:

Feral grins, his eyes flashing to each of his reluctant allies. "As you wish, my friends."

As the hulking, silver-furred Feral strides out of the treeline and toward the stair, Mosswick flits over to Janos. He taps the side of his head with one finger, then taps Janos' temple before opening and closing his other hand to mime speech. Then he points to himself, then toward Feral as the wolf strides away from the group and toward an unknown fate.

As the homunculus tries to communicate with Janos, Feral looks up at the sentries as he boldly approaches the stairs.

Half-Elf Spirit Ranger 8 (HP 68/68; F+8, R+8, W+4 (+1 vs. Arcane); AC 19/12/17; Perception +15, Sense Motive +2, Initiative +2)

Janos recoils from the homunculus at first, having not even remembered the little man existed. "Oh, it's you, Mosswick." He watches him mime out things with a furrowed brow. "You can open my mind? You're going to blow my mind? You- Oh wait, that's talking isn't it? You can talk to me? I don't think...Oh him. You can talk to him. Right, we know you can talk to Dantrian...." The Ranger looks to the beastly form walking away and realization dawns on him.

"You can still talk to him? To Feral? Read his mind? Can you talk to Dantrian too?" He glances at the others. "Is Feral thinking of betraying us?"


Base Str Mutagen:

Mosswick points to his ears and tail and shakes his head. He points back at Feral then covers his ears, straightens his back into a stiff posture, mimes buttoning a shirt collar up to the neck then nods at Janos vigorously.


B'yelka Morfaine wrote:

Taken aback by this turn in Dantrian, B'yelka brings her hand to her neck and even goes so far as to blush. "Did you say trapped? Are you not Mister Almaeus?"

A welcoming party is not what I expected to see on arrival. Can I take back the castings of Blur?

Heh, don't be so quick to judge their intentions. And no, no takebacksies.


Ashan Eilathul wrote:

"Yes, why don't we try the former and assume the latter remains on the table?" Ashan looks briefly at Janos, then to the others. "We should be prepared for the worst."

Ashan readies an action to cast scorching ash form and will wait here at the periphery. If the werewolves become hostile he'll cast and focus on moving into a position where he can support with ranged attacks.

Assuming you have a longbow, you can hit them from the woods. They are 100 feet out and 25' up.


A chorus of howls breaks out from the forest to the south of the shrine. They are the deep bassy tones of the Vollensag stalkers that the group encountered earlier, except now there are way more than two. It's hard to count them exactly, but there are more than half a dozen, and they are coming closer.

As soon as Feral strides into the clearing the silver hided wolves raise their bows and draw back arrows. "Halt!" one calls loudly and clearly. "What are you doing here? You know Mordinacht's orders. Password, or die!"


Male Human Paladin 8 | HP 68| AC 18 FF 15 T13 | Saves +11/+10/+10 | Init + 4 | Percep + 2 | Dip +14 | SM +10 | KR +6 | Heal +3 | HA +7 | HePo =2

Anton cannot make out what the wolves are saying from this distance but it is clear that Feral has not immediately gained entrance. He lines up a shot on the first wolf he sees and awaits the outcome of this parlay.


Half-Elf Spirit Ranger 8 (HP 68/68; F+8, R+8, W+4 (+1 vs. Arcane); AC 19/12/17; Perception +15, Sense Motive +2, Initiative +2)

Janos finds himself holding his breath waiting for Feral's response. He still holds his sword out.

Max HP: 67 | AC: 19 (13 T / 16 FF) | F/R/W +8/+9/+3 | CMD 22 | Ini +7 | Perception +11 | Darkvision 60ft, Scent

Feral stops and looks up at the sentries, a low growl rumbling in his chest. "If I knew the password I would give it! My friends and I were set upon by the Vollensag curs you hear even now!" He points a large claw to the south and the source of the howls. "I am new to the wood. Will you not help us drive them back?!"


Base Str Mutagen:

Also, just a friendly reminder that those howls are coming from the direction Duristan split off toward.


Female Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Diva) 8 | HP 51 | AC 19 FF 13 T17 | Saves +3/+8/+6 | Init + 4 | Percep +11

Also, not worried about Duristan :p

As soon as Feral strides into the clearing the silver hided wolves raise their bows and draw back arrows. "Halt!" one calls loudly and clearly. "What are you doing here? You know Mordinacht's orders. Password, or die!"

Feral stops and looks up at the sentries, a low growl rumbling in his chest. "If I knew the password I would give it! My friends and I were set upon by the Vollensag curs you hear even now!" He points a large claw to the south and the source of the howls. "I am new to the wood. Will you not help us drive them back?!"

The wolves wordlessly raise their bows and fire on Feral before he or anyone else can react. The skilled hunters land five arrows in Dantrian's alter ego, despite the distance.

Ah, guess I was wrong.

Before I post Jelani, do these wolves have cover? I think they are within my first range increment with my bow at least


They are 100' from the treeline (so yeah one increment), yes they have cover. They are shooting from behind some stone columns.


Base Str Mutagen:

I am using the Strength mutagen, but only one of those hits as my AC (it's currently 25). I'd popped some extracts just prior to transforming, but it'd been a few posts since I'd included my status spoiler.

Looks like it's a hit for 17, of which 5 is converted into non-lethal and the remaining 12 goes into my pool of temp hp.

Feral looks up at the sentries and roars angrily, "Why do you fire upon me?!" Eyes burning with fury, Feral's form begins to flicker and waver as he begins to stalk closer toward the stairs and the sentries. "I am willing to forgive your hastiness if you lower your bows! Continue firing, and all those vollensag curs will find of you will be pulp and ash!" Feral's words echo loudly in the clearing around the shrine, sharp and savage and unyielding. The hulking wolf makes no attempt to bolt for cover or to present a smaller target for the sentries as he strides forward, a simple dagger appearing in one of his large, clawed hands as moves, arms spread wide as if to invite further futile bowshots.

standard action: displacement
move action: stalk forward 30 more feet, draw Drosil's dagger as part of the move action

I'll go ahead and put Feral on the edge of the map.

Drosil looks to his companions. "Anton, I'll follow your lead. If you fire, I'll approach as fast as I can."

Drosil's got daggers for ranged weapons, so won't be much help from the woods. Jelani - what kind of effort would be required to get into melee range with them?


Base Str Mutagen:

As they're on a roof, I'm guessing one run action to cross the clearing then one or more climb checks to get up to them?


You have to move 100 feet, and then find a way up. It would be possible, but difficult to climb. There are open archways into the temple at ground level.


Male Human Paladin 8 | HP 68| AC 18 FF 15 T13 | Saves +11/+10/+10 | Init + 4 | Percep + 2 | Dip +14 | SM +10 | KR +6 | Heal +3 | HA +7 | HePo =2

I'm going to delay for a moment. With the wolves having cover an Inspire Courage or Good Hope would be useful so I'll wait until B'yelka takes her action


Female Human (Chelaxian) Bard (Diva) 8 | HP 51 | AC 19 FF 13 T17 | Saves +3/+8/+6 | Init + 4 | Percep +11

Seeing Anton look to her, B'yelka begins reciting a poem he may appreciate:
"No one can see into my dreams
and so they're mine alone.
I travel places and meet old friends
and some I've never known.
Some are dull and have no color
and some are bold and bright.
They don't seem to fit a pattern
as I wait for them at night."

She says it loud enough for those around her to hear, but not loud as to attract the archer's ire.

Move-Begin Inspire Courage; +2 to hit, and damage. Don't forget your Good Hope for a total of +4 to hit, +4 to damage and +2 to skills :)

Drosil and Janos do have Blur active as well :)

Drosil has nothing to add at this point. If the others begin running, he will do what he can to provide soft cover for B'yelka.

Sorry I was out on a boat all day, no wifi/cell signal to post. Ashan is casting scorching ash form with his readied action from upthread and then moving as fast as he can (can you "run" as a gaseous cloud?) towards the structure. I'll try to be more specific about direction/distance in the morning.


Ah, Gencon. How I miss thee. Well, that's okay. I've got a busy weekend anyway. Gotta do a Marxist analysis paper, and then work and running a sword club practice on Sunday.

Janos will hold. If he sees Feral break into a run for the shrine, he will too.
