Rasil, so far unable to pinpoint anything more than the general direction of the voices, is able to zero in on the shot Varisian's cry for pain, and he starts casting a spell.
Simza successfully gets Koraq back to the land of the living. The half-orc wakes up to see the man who nearly killed him literally standing right above him. The man is oblivious to Koraq being awake again, and is wide open. Koraq can have an AoO, remembering the -4 penalty for being prone. Kick his ass, Koraq!!
From the upstairs window, Mr. Copperhill fires another crossbow bolt at the Varisian in D3.
Attack: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (6) + 1 = 7
The Varisian woman concentrates on Simza this time. Simza Will save: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (11) + 3 = 14 Simza barely shakes off the magical sleep effect
The Varisian over Koraq (if still alive) 5-foot steps to C1 and stabs at the half-orc.
Attack: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (7) + 5 = 12
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3
He succeeds, since Koraq is lying on the ground, but it's a minor wound, though still serious given Koraq's current condition (and negated if Koraq's AoO takes the man down - he has 6 hp left).
The other Varisian steps up and attacks Simza.
Attack: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (7) + 5 = 12
Unlike the last attack, this one clangs off Simza's armour.
Barin heads out of the vault and up the stairs as fast as he can.
Issceran moves around the corner into the lamp light, moving at an accelerated speed. I'm going to wait to see Koraq's AoO, though, before deciding his action. In the meanwhile, Rasil finishes his spell. A small burst of energy explodes out from the point the Varisian attacking Simza was in. It doesn't catch him, but it does catch the woman and her bodyguard.
Will save woman: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (9) + 4 = 13
Will save man: 1d20 ⇒ 20
The woman slumps to the ground, but the man stays awake.
As I said, I'll finish Issceran's action once I see the AoO, and then it will be Rasil, having just finished a sleep spell (hope that was okay, Rasil).
And his whimpering quickly fades as unconsciousness mercifully takes him.
Issceran continues around to behind Simza and Koraq and touches Koraq. Koraq now has a +1 insight bonus to attacks, skill checks, ability checks, and saves for 1 round as Issceran's divination magic imparts a split second prescience to the half-orc.
Unless he used it already Koraq should have a +1 from Guidance still available to him too. You might want to delay/ready until after Simza's turn, both for a heal and for a flank
"You messed with the wrong Varisian buddy!" she yells as his blade skitters over her armor, and she waves the mace threateningly in his direction, pleased that her armor was doing it's job, making all the exhaustion and sweatiness worth it.
When an unexpected wave of sleepiness suddenly hits her she sways, disoriented for a few moments, until she manages to shake it off, far too full of adrenaline right now to slumber. She steps forward, next to the man who attacked her and glares at the woman, who she assumes must have been responsible for Koraq's own unconciousness. Seeing Koraq take another wound however, swaying on his feet once again she focuses her attention internally, gripping her holy symbols as a wave of energy flows from her. She smirks as the flow warps neatly around each of the foes, excluding them from her goddesses' bounty.
Wow that's a run on sentence.
5 foot step to C3, and channel energy, excluding the 4 foes
Channel:1d6 ⇒ 5
Ef yeah! 5 healing to Koraq, Issceran, herself and uhh... Coppersmith if he needs it :p
Still on his back, Koraq's somewhat worried about getting up until the a restorative warmth from Simza brings up his vitality. However, the half-orc doesn't take the chance quite yet of getting up and grabs his chain and lashes it at Simza's assailant.
Chain power attack on enemy in C2:1d20 + 4 - 4 + 1 - 1 ⇒ (17) + 4 - 4 + 1 - 1 = 17 Damage if it hits:2d4 + 9 ⇒ (3, 4) + 9 = 16
Ah right. So the Varisian woman doesn't fall asleep then. Too bad.
Rasil continues to stumble about in his personal darkness. Meanwhile, Simza channels a burst of blessed healing, soothing more of Koraq's wounds. In response, the half-OTC whips his chain out at the man threatening Simza, wrapping it around his leg, the spikes digging in deep. The man cries out and has a brief moment to make eye contact with the prone warrior before a single sharp tug from Koraq rips the man's leg right off. He falls to the ground and quickly bleeds out from the open artery.
Issceran, still moving very fast, dashes across the front of Rimblesnuffin's, skirting wide around the two remaining Varisians who are pressed against the patio railing of the cafe. He comes up to Rasil, saying, "Rasil. It's me. I've got you."
I'm continuing in rounds for the moment, in case folks are still interested in hurting these guys. We may have to go back into rounds, but the Varisians have stopped any agressive movements, so if you're content to talk, we can end combat here.
Koraq stands up, his eyes glowing with as much confusement as there is anger while looking around for a Shoanti or something else that would make sense for the past 2 minutes of madness. "What the hell is going on here?! I better get some answers before more limbs start gettin' eviscerated. And where is that damned Mikobar!!!"
Finally Barin manages to reach the others. As he approaches them, weapons in hand and typical nasty sneer on his face he grows puzzled and more puzzled:"I tought you were fighting for your lives, not chatting merryly with Varisians... If I had known I would have taken my time to check that vault out... and by the way... you look even worse than usual Koraqy... did you embrace another stone elemental?"
Simza is just as confused as the others. "You are the ones who attacked us. I know I heard Issceran identify us as member of the watch." she observes, glowering at Madame Pietra for a few moments, before looking down at the man Koraq just maimed, sighing as the heat went out of her. That Rasil recognised her was enough, at least for now.
More importantly was saving these peoples lives if they still could be. She grips the holy symbols hanging around her neck, moving to a more central location, and once more channels divine energy through them.
Channel Energy:1d6 ⇒ 2
"Madame, if you could make sure that they do not attack us..." she requests, before starting to repeat the process. "and I believe you will need to accompany us..." she says, looking to see whether the woman agrees before healing again.
The one-legged man comes to with Simza's healing waves.
"I will not be accompanying you," Madame Pietra says to Simza. "If Mikobar is not here, I know where he'll be going next. If I could actually be sure I would be able to find him again afterwards, I would be content to let him attack his next target. Would do the upper crust some good."
"Now, as you'll likely attempt to stop me from leaving..."
Madame Pietra casts a spell and vanishes. As soon as she does, the injured man grabs up his fallen rapier.
Uhh, alright, so she didn't do the second channel then :p Hmm, I don't have spellcraft yet. Oh well Previous Map Have any of the enemies moved? Simza's in C3, Barin would be next to Issceran in A4 I expect Actually, she moved forward to make sure she got everyone in the channel, so Simza would probably be in E2.
Okay, had a look through old posts. The Varisian in F1 is the only one still up, if Simza was being careful not to revive either of the other two with her channels. He had never put his rapier away, but we'll say he was surprised by her abandoning him to flee, and didn't act on his turn. Issceran is down by Rasil, and Barin is somewhere in that area as well.
I'll also assume that Koraq stood up at some point during the talking as well.
Just to be clear, Simza channeled to heal everyone with the first channel. So everyone got two healing. With Madame Pietra disappearing however, she did not channel the second time (and thus has two channels left)
Yea, I had a level 1 fighter in First Steps pt2 one shot the final boss with a 62 damage scythe crit (Str 18 + power attack so he dealth 8d4 + 36 damage and rolled way too many 4's). This was a good thing, though, since he was also the only one to pass the Color Spray saving throw :P He also almost 1 shotted the final boss in God's Market Gamble, but failed to confirm (which was a good thing for most parties involved!)
With her fellow Varisians incapacitated, Simza will hurry over to where the invisible fortune teller supposed is. She frowns for a moment before shucking off her pack, and rummaging inside, pulling out a bag of something which she upends over the general area, dumping flour all over the invisible woman.
Lets see if that works. If it does, and Barin or Koraq is nearby to threaten her, then Simza will channel, excluding the other enemies apart from Madame Pietra.
