My own workload has gotten pretty tough also. I am keeping up fairly well with what's going on though. I can't wait for the hectic holidays to be over.


Hearings until Friday. Praying that no deadlines arrive before the holidays. My country so love holiday economics that we have no work from December 25 until January 1.

I'm ok. I'm wondering if I missed Syd taking a whack at the Efreet anywhere down the line...


Wow. Those were two horrid and wonderful weeks of overwork.I'm really sorry about that!

RECAP:

The Efreet hovered toward the mages on a flame surfboard and somewhat perturbed by the ice blasts created the illusion of horrid smoke on the battlefield after moving to engage the fighters followed by a celestial pig.

According to my quick check everyone failed to see through the illusion, so you can only see flamer if he is right next to you.

Everyone knows where he is though.

So Jon moved in on his last position and laid some blade into him, leaving a massive gash across his chest.

Syd is a few steps away, but can easily close from his position.

The mages have a little farther to go.

Cordoba continues circling around the north of the map to see where the others have gone.


Bump


Cordoba looks over the dune to see if he is near his target using his dagger as an improvised mirror.

They are running away, and making good time at that.


Cordoba breaks cover and moves after the targets as swiftly as he can.

Do we have action points?


I believe you do. And the rules thereof are on Pharasma's 'about' page.

Speaking of Pharasma's page, I noticed that Rackham isn't listed under "player characters".

Where exactly is he on the map, anyway?


^-^

I was changing the page after you went soul searching. Then GG and Tobus took off and I just sort of forgot. Well, guess what, now you're at the top of the list.


5 foot step from Syd and he's in. Nice area effect from Pulsifer or Aref and meh... I'm sure Syd and Jon can take it.


Male Half-orc Fighter 2

1d20+7=23, 2d6+7=12 5 ft step to S5

Syd snarls, "Geddoudofit!" as he swings his new claymore in a mighty arc.


M Human Wizard 3

Rackham raises his hands in a grand sweeping motion, and a blast of red ice erupts from the ground beneath the efreet, pelting the creature with freezing shards.

Casts snowball swarm: 10-foot radius burst centered on U-7; damage: 10 (cold).


Lungs burning with the sulfuric miasma Syd lunges through the heat warped air and slashes the Efreet opening a blazing gash in its thigh.

The strange ring around its neck flares with a white fire. It snarls and spits in an unknown tongue... what are no doubt curses... Syd sense motive.

Pulsifer's surreal red ice sweeps up over the Efreet and the peccary. Steam fills the air as ice crackles into vapor against the Efreet's skin, staggering it for a moment.

The peccary squeals as ice tears through it.


Aref moves to V7 to keep the flank on the Efreet after the peccary vanishes. Drawing a dagger, he'll fight defensively as a standard action.


Round 3

The Efreet looks like it's on its last legs.

You have it flanked. +2 flanking bonuses.

24 The Deceiver: Init +7 (DEX 16)
20 Aref Sami Sharokh: Init +3 (DEX 16)
19 Sydley Hentooth: Init +2 (DEX 14)
18 Efreeti
18 Rackham Pulsifer: Init +1 (DEX 13)

Spoiler:
1d20+7=25, 1d6+1=5, 1d6=6

Possible Critical with the rapier

Confirmation Roll 1d20+7=23, 1d6+1=2

The Deceiver emerges from hiding and backstabs the Efreeti.


Ok I thought you were going the other way but WTH, he's almost down. He was already spell-tapped and wounded when he started.

First you need to disbelieve the smoke so... Will roll: 1d20+4=24

Disbelieving the Efreet's magics, Cordoba steps through the illusory smoke, coming out behind it with a flanking sneak attack, and a killing blow.

It laughs as space warps around it and it returns to whence it was calle, as does the scimitar, leaving only a whispered word as it evaporates: "...finally."

The smoke clears.

The others have gone, pointing their way, a trail of hurried footprints over the dunes.


In the words of Kev the Rogue: "Die!"

Syd:

Spoiler:
Maybe it was just your week in the slave hold, maybe not. But when you looked the Efreet in the eyes you got the impression that it wasn't cursing you, in fact it wasn't really interested in fighting. You're pretty sure it was enslaved.

"Poor bastard," Syd mutters, "Fink we be'er 'ave a word wiv 'is 'employers'..."

Thanks, I've been swamped. I keep hoping it's gonna slow down but it seems to be picking up speed with the holidays. I'll be better after Christmas.

"Good hit, my friend! Ve seem to have ended the creature. Vhere are his comrades?"


Cordoba waves at the tracks... they have fled over the dunes toward Katheer.


"Everyone alright?"

I agree. Anyone enslaving a creature such as dat is one to be contenting with. Let us go.


"Forward then!"


Roger that...


Male Half-orc Fighter 2

"Le's geddem!"


<From Drasheer's hump.>

"Guys? What the frack? Ryor? Remember? Picked the locks? Killed pirates? Lugged s*## across the desert? Remember?"


You set off over the dunes on the trail of the Efreet's masters, wondering where Vass has gone and counting the days passed to guess how far ahead Book may be.

Over the sand the three move with the speed of natives, and as the trail moves from shifting dune back into the flat, sharp scrub closer to the river, the trail becomes harder to follow - but their advantage of speed vanishes.

Jon tracking?

Aref:

Spoiler:
You only had a glance of the bald man, and at a distance. Who is he? Your uncertainty erodes under a growing conviction that you've seen him among the Satrap's mages (There are dozens of minor mages, he is one of their number). His name is Ashram, and though he does command the respect of his title, as you remember it he is neither politically powerful nor socially important.

Before long you are on the North Road from Katheer to the Inner Sea. Those new to the area are struck by the turns and curves the wheel worn trail takes on such flat land. But before long all quickly see that the trail snakes around gullies and erosion of the Qadr's edge.

The sun creeps down behind you from its burning apex above. You sweat. You drink. Sharp gravel gnaws at your boots, leaping in and slashing your blisters. Still air smothers you, smolders. The horizon quivers behind a curtain of rising heat. The torture is interrupted by breezes that bring short conversations, relieved sighs and sips of the awakening water brought from the temple.

By the time you actually see the Qadr the sun is well behind you.

Aref:

Spoiler:
You shall all be at the edge of the city by nightfall. The city is surrounded by slums. Al Nuntesh, or “The Hives” as it is called by Katheerans: mud and stone buildings nervously huddled together outside the wards and packed with the poor and disenfranchised of Katheer.

Separating the Hives from the walls, the Wards are an open strip of land outside the walls that hide an arcane barrier to undead and unnamed abominations which inevitably try to creep in from the desert. More obviously it allows wall guardsmen a significant field of fire - it is a defensive buffer where no permanent buildings may be erected and tremendous firepower may be focused from the walls themselves.

Inside the walls the city is built largely on the Qadiran plain but falls off in quarried layers or steps down into the River Qadr’s canyon. The bottommost layers of the city, the docks and the mud domed shacks of those who ply the river rest fearfully on a flood plain that literally sweeps the scum out of Katheer every year. This, no doubt, is where your friends will find their friend Book.


Evening – Pharast 27th, 4708 - River Qadr

Tired from the day's march, you drag your feet through the gravel and dust as the trail bends toward a ledge. Step by step, a breathtaking panorama unfolds.

From the widening road you gaze out over a ledge, across a deep green snake of water cutting through a canyon stacked with curving layers of yellows, reds, and browns. The sight is so beautiful that everyone stops and stares in silence.

River Qadr runs through a canyon cut from rocky plains by eons of annual floods and Katheer was founded to secure trade along it - trade between Casmaron and Avistan. Overlooking the Qadr from a plain in the middle of a desert, the city oversees, supports, regulates and protects all commerce and all travel on the River Qadr. So overwhelming is Katheer's strategic command of the water below that only attack by land is feasible, and that must be made over daunting miles of burning, shifting, sand.

It sobers everyone to think that almost every coin that moves between two continents passes on the water below.


You keep moving...


After staring out over Shat Al Qadr for a time Aref calls for haste so that you can make the outskirts of Katheer by sundown.

Invigorated by your short stop you make speed... until a cloud of dust in the east warns you of riders fast approaching from the very direction you walk.

Stay on the road? Hide?


hide stay on the road

Clear as mud. What you guys gonna do with Ryor? Untie him?


Jon says untie Ryor after the fight.

Tracking 1d20+6=26, Stealth 1d20-5=5

Hide beside the road.


"A man who knows his friends. Thanks big guy!"
