Emrael uses Spring Attack to strike the dog o' bones and move on past to V15

Hasted Attack 1d20 + 18 + 1 + 3 - 3 - 3 ⇒ (16) + 18 + 1 + 3 - 3 - 3 = 32 including Haste, Inspire Courage, Combat Expertise, Power Attack
Damage 1d8 + 19 ⇒ (8) + 19 = 27

I don't think I should need an Acrobatics roll using Spring Attack, but here it is, just in case: 1d20 + 19 ⇒ (13) + 19 = 32

Crit confirmation roll 1d20 + 18 + 1 + 3 - 3 - 3 + 7 ⇒ (4) + 18 + 1 + 3 - 3 - 3 + 7 = 27 including Haste, Inspire Courage, Combat Expertise, Power Attack, Critical Perfection bonus
Damage 1d8 + 19 ⇒ (1) + 19 = 20

Do we know anything about how the shogun died? Any juicy rumors that might throw his warrior off his game?


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Emrael crits! It's still alive; I think that's the most grievous wound it has received though.

.....doing a little "research on the Shogun Kaigo Kugetsu".....i.e. thinking something up;.....


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Kaigo Kugetsu's palace was stormed one night by shadowy assassins.
Some say ninja, perhaps even kunoichi.
Another rival family tried to take the shogunate from the Kaigo; there was a time of battle and struggle. Kugetsu's death wasn't made public for three years.
It was said he died of a blood clot traveling to his lung, but......
those who know better, know it was......shadowy assassins......
There's a kabuki play about it...
Night of 99 Black Swords
....a kabuki play that is forbidden upon pain of death to perform, to attend a performance of, or to even own a manuscript of.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

milk run. back in an hour.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

re: shogun's death,......you get the feeling that.....there's definitely more to it than a pulmonary embolism......;)

*sniff* It's a beautiful thing to watch a master at their craft.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

cool; I was kinda.....unsure of myself. I started a thread in offtopic even.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

I'll check you guys tomorrow I reckon; kinda tired.


Male Wild Elf Druid 16 (Shifter version, PHBII)

Elgan-Hawk screeches at the undead dog in Dog-speak (Which sounds weird coming from the hawks throat, even to him)

'Bad Dog! SIT!'


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

It growls at him.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Emrael is the only one what attacked this round.....


M Half-Orc Ranger

Dok tries to cut the pile of bones down again...

Falchion attack 1: 1d20 + 22 ⇒ (8) + 22 = 30
Damage: 2d4 + 10 ⇒ (4, 1) + 10 = 15
Fire Damage: 1d6 ⇒ 6

Falchion attack 2: 1d20 + 17 ⇒ (4) + 17 = 21
Damage: 2d4 + 10 ⇒ (2, 1) + 10 = 13
Fire Damage: 1d6 ⇒ 4

Falchion attack 3: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (13) + 12 = 25
Damage: 2d4 + 10 ⇒ (3, 1) + 10 = 14
Fire Damage: 1d6 ⇒ 2


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Dok's first hit connects.

bad rolls......sheeesh!

It's getting closer to its doom; it bays, eerily and forlornly, and there's the sound of a thousand bones clacking in its entirety.


Bard 8/ Troubadour of Stars 9 Epic Shredder

Pip fires at the bony hound again

1d20 + 19 ⇒ (19) + 19 = 381d20 + 19 ⇒ (2) + 19 = 211d20 + 17 ⇒ (3) + 17 = 201d20 + 17 ⇒ (12) + 17 = 291d8 + 17 ⇒ (8) + 17 = 251d8 + 17 ⇒ (5) + 17 = 221d8 + 17 ⇒ (4) + 17 = 211d8 + 17 ⇒ (8) + 17 = 25

Additional damage for Manyshot: 1d8 + 17 ⇒ (6) + 17 = 23


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Pip ends the thing, and it falls in a clatter of bones.

End(?) of combat; 11,000 exp each.

However,......there's a dead samurai talking to you; if you want to attack him,......well Satari, Elgan, Altai, and Beldan haven't moved in this round.....


M Half-Orc Ranger

Dok's feelin' the pain, and with more combat probable to come very soon, he'll take the earliest opportunity to use one of his wands of CLW on himself a few times.

CLW: 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 3 = 9
CLW: 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 3 = 5
CLW: 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 3 = 9

Okay to tack those onto my current HP, DM?


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Yeah; go for it.

The samurai doesn't make any moves on anybody who is buffing themselves.

He does, however, look in your direction; you hear his neck make snapping sounds like the creaking boards of a house in the wind.

He seems to be considering you; also looking at your falchion.

You feel that he seems to be noting everything he can about you.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

And,......the metal man in the hungry pit.....
you hear grinding, an automobile in a trash compactor.....
don't see him at the moment......


Bard 8/ Troubadour of Stars 9 Epic Shredder

Pip strums Lucille

Samurai of old
Mighty in the path of steel
Follower of the warrior code

You see before you strangers to your shores
And native sons
Ronin without master or geas
Fell in power, but guided by wisdom

Speak your mind
Challenge or parley?
The Regulators will do either.

Perform (diplomacy) 1d20 + 33 ⇒ (18) + 33 = 51


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

His head jerks back a little bit at Pip's string twangings; then....

"In.....all of the years....never heard anything so splendid...." whispers past his stern demon oni mask......

then,

"I am truly moved by your small minstrel's performance, outlanders.

Who are you? What do you here?....."

There's a metallic shriek above......the metal man's still in the pit.


Female Elven Kensai 17; 122/122 hp; Effects: Haste, Inspire Courage +4, Mass Fly, Mirror Image (7)

Emrael sheathes her katana when the last enemy falls, waiting to let the samurai identify himself as such before she makes assumptions.

She looks at the others to see if one of them wishes to speak.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

He looks her way, as she sheathes, and nods his head respectfully.

"Honored, to be in the presence of the Lady of the Thousand Pines' servant;" he speaks.


Bard 8/ Troubadour of Stars 9 Epic Shredder

Pip bows

"I am known as Pip, from far Yeomanry. These are my comrades old and new: The Regulators. We have traveled here under the power of a trickster god, and now we resume our quest to right wrongs in the world."

Pip looks up at the undead samurai

"Why do you linger here when your service seems to be finished?"

Edit: Forgot he called out his name, so deleted stupid question


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

"I spoke my name. Forgive me; perhaps the clatter of battle blotted out my murmurings.

I am......FUKUMITSU KODA, SERVANT OF THE SHOGUN, KAIGO KUGETSU.

I am charged with........WITH TAKING THIS KEEP!!!"

He thunders, though waveringly, looking around; he seems somewhat confused. Like he just woke up from a nap.


Bard 8/ Troubadour of Stars 9 Epic Shredder

LOL crosspost

Pip gestures to the samurai

"It pains me to tell you this, noble samurai Fukumitsu, but I fear that your battle was long years ago. You seem to be trapped here in undeath."


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Pleading, and angry; you can't tell which; maybe both....
"all the same. Death means nothing. I must take this keep!!!"

It's all good; the post was days ago.....


Bard 8/ Troubadour of Stars 9 Epic Shredder

Pip sighs sadly

"The keep is taken and destroyed, long years ago. Bones and specters are its only inhabitants."

He looks around

"Look keenly where you stand, Lord Fukumitsu, and you will see the truth in my words."


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

"The Shogun?"


Female Elven Kensai 17; 122/122 hp; Effects: Haste, Inspire Courage +4, Mass Fly, Mirror Image (7)

Emrael bows respectfully in return to the undead samurai.

"The Lady of the Thousand Pines appreciates that such an honorable warrior as yourself feels such. I fear, Samurai, that I bear unwelcome news. Shogun Kaigo Kugetsu has been dead many years. Since before I drew breath as an infant, in fact. I am sorry to be the one to tell you this." She's young, for an elf adventurer.

She bows deeply to him and in memory of his lost lord.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

"How,.....how can this....be?...." he looks at his hands. Then he doffs his mempo oni mask. Feels his face. You see rheumy, dead eyes, and mummified skin under the mask. A death mask, under the mask.

"This is.....no longer my age?......how did I die?.....are you......are my deeds remembered?" he asks you all;....
"Did....I.....take this keep?"


M Half-Orc Ranger

Dok finally speaks. "Looks like it to me..."


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

"Well, then....who are you lot?"


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Huzzah!


M Half-Orc Ranger

"Uhhh..." Dok's voice trails off, then after a few seconds... "I am Dok, ranger and... outlander..." The awkwardness of his presentation could be attributed to the fact that he's cordially conversing with a long-dead samurai... Maybe...


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

He grunts; "much has changed,.....in my absence."


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

You hear distant thunder. It starts to sprinkle.


Female Elven Kensai 17; 122/122 hp; Effects: Haste, Inspire Courage +4, Mass Fly, Mirror Image (7)

"Indeed, honored warrior, and it seems that it may be changing quickly even as we visit here. Strange things have occurred recently. If I may ask, who held this keep that you took? Tell us the tale of the taking of the keep and our friend," she gestures to Pip, "will tell the tale throughout the lands."


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

"This keep was held by the monks of Bashudonzo. He who taught of the enlightenment of the shadow.
There is a metaphor; the candle that flickers in the breeze,.....the shadows that dance with the light are of more fierce composition than the weak light created by the flame.
They sought the riddle of the Nine Swords here.

The shogun tried not to interfere in the interplay between the divine and mens' hearts, but.......these.....heretics went too far.
They openly discussed rebellions. Revolutions. A new order.
It could not be tolerated. They flouted his good and just pronouncements.

This fortress was once the summer palace of the Emperor, many centuries before even my time.
Then it became a crucial piece of the southern defensive bulwark....and fell into disuse, until the Bashudonzoite Monks took up residence.

I was sent, by the shogun with 500 warriors, and a commoner muster of four times that number. And then,....."

he seems to stop, to contemplate something. Then he seems more like he's sleeping. Or dead. Or,.....resting dead.......


Male Wild Elf Druid 16 (Shifter version, PHBII)

Sorry for my absence, Spent Mothers day loading in and yesterday all day rigging two fly systems (We're doing Aladdin Jr) I'll be busy this week, but I'll try to keep up.

Elgan-hawk flies down to land on Claws' shoulder. He then hops off and takes his natural form. The cajunelf leans against claw and chews thoughtfully on a twig as the parlay goes on around him. Those familiar with the elf can see in his relaxed stance that he is ready to spring into movement if needed.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

The samurai comes to from his....slumber.

"More,.....miems. The world.....has changed. I've only.....seen three, in my life,....and now two at once......"

he bows a little to Elgan.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

And there's more mechanical grinding from the hungry pit on the roof of the main keep.


Bard 8/ Troubadour of Stars 9 Epic Shredder

While the Samurai Fukumitsu talks, Pip weaves a background of music through his words

"Remember my lord, perhaps there is something causing you to be bound to this place"


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

"I've been here, where the winds of limbo roar, for so long......"

and you hear thundering......outside the keep's walls.

Cannonfire.

The whole place is at once shrouded by a rich sulfurous smoke that billows from only the gods know where.


Bard 8/ Troubadour of Stars 9 Epic Shredder

Pip riffs a haunting ethereal tune

His sword joins in with a high pitched harpsichord-like sound

"and I'm young enough to look at
But far too old to see
All the scars are on the inside.."


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

You can hear swords clanging on swords now, all around in the mist.
Somebody screams; whether he's letting loose a spirit whoop or being eviscerated is unclear.


M Half-Orc Ranger

Dok looks around, falchion in hand, willing the illusion to end.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

It seems.....less noisy somehow. He hears less "din of battle" going on about him.


Female Elven Kensai 17; 122/122 hp; Effects: Haste, Inspire Courage +4, Mass Fly, Mirror Image (7)

Emrael's eyes narrow and her right hand settles on the hilt of her katana as the sounds of war arise, but she doesn't draw the weapon.

Does the violence of the past live on in this place? Or have we been transported back to the time of the battle itself?


Male Wild Elf Druid 16 (Shifter version, PHBII)

Elgan bobs his head and shoulders politely in return to the spirit's small bow. When the din of battle begins, he drops his twig, and hops back up onto Claw's shoulder for a better view. He sniffs the air, then licks a finger and sticks it up over his head. He looks back to Altai with a puzzled look on his face.

"Ah don' git it. Ur we still heah? Ur iz we back den? Ur izzit sumthin else dis time?"
