Into the Obscure (A Dark Extraplanar Adventure)

Game Master Halflingtime

The terrible plane of Abaddon lies in wait...

Indeed!


AC/Touch/FF: 21/16/16; F/R/W: +6/+9/+4 Max HP 47; Current HP 47

I feel quite stupid, knowing that we were going on an extra-planar adventure to Abaddon, and playing a character with Knowledge: Planes, for not getting weapons that would bypass damage reduction. I guess I'm just not used to starting at higher than level 1.

I feel the same, although my failure to give Rohini some doses of silver blanch makes sense in-game, since she doesn't have much planar knowledge and, more importantly, she didn't plan on coming to the plane in the first place...

Maybe we can melt some silver coins down. Anyone have some Alchemy?

Not me, but that's a pretty good idea. Melt the silver in an iron pot and dip the sling stones. We would need tongs and a drying rack too. Where are we in initiative, anyway?


Female :D Check out my fetching opercles!

Petrova, I think.


Female :D Check out my fetching opercles!

It is Petrova's turn, in fact. I'm quite sure of it. However, we've come to the roadblock that is current damage output, I think...


Male Half Elf Rogue 8 (HP 51/51; AC 23/15/18; F+6, R+14, W+5 (+2 trap, enchant, fear), Init +5, Per +13 (+4 trap))

In melee, with my parry ability, I can make every attack a sneak attack (provided the parries are successful), and help a little with overcoming DR just by pure damage output, but other than that I'm at a loss. {I didn't bring enough ammunition.}


Female :D Check out my fetching opercles!

There are things I can do, but not now. I still need Petrova to post.

Should we just go ahead and post and get the rest of our actions up? Maybe Petrova will coup de grace the cacodaemon that's down if the rest of us take care of the other one.


Female :D Check out my fetching opercles!

Actually, Talon's already more than done that.
What is bound to happen now is different; I'll post on it tonight.


Female :D Check out my fetching opercles!

Too... freaking tired to do more combat tonight. Tomorrow, then. Thanks for the heads-up, Petrova. Kanthuun, also, might have to take you up on your offer...


Female :D Check out my fetching opercles!

Sorry, guys, having some irl issues,


Male Half Elf Rogue 8 (HP 51/51; AC 23/15/18; F+6, R+14, W+5 (+2 trap, enchant, fear), Init +5, Per +13 (+4 trap))

Me too. Will be out of town due to a funeral for a few days. Back on Sunday.


Female :D Check out my fetching opercles!

Condolences, Hanethes.

Why did Drovya provoke an AoO? Was it because the golem has reach so Drovya needed to move into and out of a threatened (reach) square to get close enough to engage in melee with the thing?

Male Half Elf Bladebound Magus 8

That's exactly it. I'm just hoping that it only gets 1 AoO per round, so some other people can move in, set up flanks and we can all wail on it before it kills me. Now would be a nice time for another grease spell too, and maybe a haste and a bless as well.

What about enlarging someone to knock it in the pit, bull rush style? Plus Grease.

Rohini has Bless covered when she's up next. She can't really help with the other stuff and, since she can't deliver much damage it probably doesn't make sense for her to close in. She can cast Aid on Talon if an extra 10 or so temporary HP would put him in a comfort zone to join melee again...

well it would have to be a lot of temps, because I currently have 12 hp.

Unless someone's got improved bullrush, knocking it into the pit is going to provoke, and I'm guessing it's got a high CMD, or we could try to run and hope it won't follow us out of the room. I think focused attacks on it are still our best bet. Hopefully we can kill it before it kills us. And hey, if it goes prone it'll be -4 to hit and AC vs. melee, and it will need to burn actions and provoke to get up, so that's something. We probably should have just left this room alone, but, well, hindsight is 20/20, right?

Yeah, it's the inability to heal the golem's damage that makes it especially brutal. Rohini could get Talon around 10 more HP (1d8 +6), which would probably be enough for him to take one more hit from the golem, but I can understand Talon not wanting to re-enter melee under those circumstances. Frankly, I think it is going to take a lot to take down the golem (DR, magic resistance, etc.) and we need to be ready for the retreat -- and have in mind whether to go back the way we came or through the other archway. It probably makes sense to go through the other archway if we want to continue this quest, with the expectation we'll find another exit. But we're in bad shape if our heaviest hitter (Talon) is basically out of action for the foreseeable future.

It does seem like there are a few magical books in this room. Perhaps we can busy the creature long enough for Hanethes to grab those before we make our retreat?

Yea, I think I've taken my share of hits this encounter. Unless you can get me to half-ish, I'm gonna play cheerleader for this one. It's that or shoot my bow, poorly.

For what it's worth, I really thought the pit was going to work.

When you said that flank is not available, did you mean that there was no one else to flank with, or that it's physically impossible to flank the golem? Cause we're really going to need Hanethes' sneak attacks if we're going to have a snowball's chance in hell. Anyway, if Drovya dies, can I play an alchemist?


Female :D Check out my fetching opercles!

The pit is literally behind the creature. Flanking is impossible physically; however, there are things that can be done.

If Drovya dies, you can play an alchemist. :)

Talon--hand people with high Dex your alchemist's fire. Let's burn the thing to the ground.

and for what it's worth, I never wanted to go into the room! :( Sorcerers don't read books! (Unless they are picture books of dancing centaurs and thingies)

This isn't an impossible battle. It's an improbable battle. The xp is divine, though.

You can have the one alchemist fire. The number next to it is the cost. And XP, like most things is useless to the dead.

Male Half Elf Bladebound Magus 8

Ah, but you don't have to be behind it to flank it, just on opposite sides.

Flanking


Female :D Check out my fetching opercles!

Then someone will have to move through the position of the monster to be by its side. Is that what you were doing, moving diagonally? I'm sorry, again, without the penchant for mapmaking (and the fact I need to be writing essays instead)...
If so, flanking is possible, but dangerous. I'll allow it, though, because of the size differences.

Male Half Elf Bladebound Magus 8

Yes, that was my intention, to move to its side so maybe Hanethes could get in there for some sneak damage.

Where are we in the initiative order at this point? And what is the order?


Male Half Elf Rogue 8 (HP 51/51; AC 23/15/18; F+6, R+14, W+5 (+2 trap, enchant, fear), Init +5, Per +13 (+4 trap))

Hmm.... did I mess up. I thought we were at the next round?

Hold on, I'll recount it for you. It was the top post when I was responding to the thread.

Hanethes, Drovya, Kanthuun, Monster, Petrova, Rohini, Talon, Arasmes.

Droyva and Petrova delayed until now. Petrova just did something, I think. And Droyva went in with his illusions. So I thought it was Hanethes turn again. :)

Yes, that's right. Petrovyushka is going to grab some arrows or something. Hanethes, you're right on schedule. I posted my action, but it takes place after Drovyechka. I need some vodka and pickles now.


Female :D Check out my fetching opercles!

Word to Kanthuun.

So, I believe at this point its Drovya, Kanthuun (who already posted his action), Monster, Petrova, Rohini, Talon, Arasmes, then back to Hanethes...?


Male Half Elf Rogue 8 (HP 51/51; AC 23/15/18; F+6, R+14, W+5 (+2 trap, enchant, fear), Init +5, Per +13 (+4 trap))

Oh, my turn! Well, let's see what we can do here.


Female :D Check out my fetching opercles!

Yes, Petrova, and it is a composite longbow (+3 strength damage possible).

I think Petrova spent her last action getting and prepping the bow. I think she should be ready to shoot now...


Female :D Check out my fetching opercles!

Wait, did I misunderstand the question?
She will be able to shoot by the next turn, but not on her delayed action.

I think that's what I meant -- her next turn is coming up soon, after the golem goes...

I want to make sure I understand how the grease and create pit spells work in conjunction... The grease made the golem fall down when it failed its reflex save and then it used a move action to stand up, provoking attacks of opportunity. Did it not fall into the pit because there is nothing in the rules as written that someone falling to the ground next to a pit has a chance of sliding in? I guess under the spell description as written, the golem needs to make a save to avoid falling into the pit at the END of its turn, which hasn't happened yet. That save is at +2 and it is unclear whether the grease spell affects that (although it seems like it should, logically). Also, does the golem need to make a reflex save to stand up in an area covered by a grease spell, or not because the spell description only refers to "walk[ing] within or through the area"?

I'm trying to make sure I understand because I'm not much of a rules expert so understanding how all this works is a great help to me, especially because I'm GMing a tabletop game and really should know the rules better than I do...

Thanks!
