Kythel's quick thinking dispels the displacement...

Allowing Broccan to hit the giant with both his attacks this time!

Alkaid and Edrukk are up!

Edrukk presses his attack, also.

+2 greatsword, sacred weapon, power attack, furious focus, vital strike: 1d20 + 11 + 1 + 2 ⇒ (14) + 11 + 1 + 2 = 28 with Sacred weapon bonus, flanking

Damage: 4d6 + 12 + 1 ⇒ (3, 1, 3, 6) + 12 + 1 = 26 with Sacred weapon bonus

Broccan, Alkaid and now Edrukk are close enough to all feel the intense heat of the smithy each taking a single d6 of damage 1d6 ⇒ 41d6 ⇒ 51d6 ⇒ 2
Kythel is still shielded by Alkaid

The giant looks grim and switches up his targets a bit, attacking all three of you

He directs his comment and first blow at Edrukk
"Mighty blows indeed, but not might enough!"

Kythel channels positive energy into his allies, "This fight is far from over, indeed this Giant is a worthy adversary".

Edrukk continues, grunting as the hammer finally connects. "Yer a tough 'un, n' doubt. T' bad ye weren't fer talkin'."

+2 greatsword, sacred weapon, power attack, furious focus, vital strike: 1d20 + 11 + 1 + 2 ⇒ (20) + 11 + 1 + 2 = 34 with Sacred weapon bonus, flanking

That should take him down a peg or two! Finish him, Broccan!

EDIT: Oops, don't get to double the extra Vital Strike dice. They're removed.


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

Actually on a natural 20 I let the crit auto succeed and just double the damage....so 62 points is a good hit!

The fire giant....
"I never said I wanted a fight, I said I didn't have time to talk. I got time for a good tussle. Let me know when your ready to say uncle."

Broccan is up!

He uses a swift action and a use of fervor to heal himself a bit more, even as he swings again. Heals: 2d6 ⇒ (1, 1) = 2

Selective Channel No Giants allowed! 3d6 ⇒ (6, 3, 1) = 10


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

"Enough! I am willing to concede if you are."

The giant holds an action to attack unless you agree....

Those too close to the fire still each take 1d6 ⇒ 41d6 ⇒ 21d6 ⇒ 1


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

The giant looks skeptical....

"So that's it, then? We are not fighting?"

He closes the forge door to decrease the temperature.....


"I'll let you go, if you swear never to use your skills to further works of those that have evil in their hearts, dark desires, or evil intentions."


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

"Hey now that's half my business, I would wager. Can you provide this other employment or a tribute from what is earned?"

I fear you are on the long road to get this one redeemed to good....


Rogue 2/Cleric of Pharasma 6 | HP = 63/70 | AC = 15 | Initiative +4 | CMD – 17 | CMB – +5 | F +6 | R +7 | W +7

"I would imagine that there is a lot of work to be done from where we come from though my allies would know better than I..."

As a gesture of good faith Kythel channels energy and include the Giant this time.

Channel Energy 3d6 ⇒ (5, 3, 6) = 14


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

The giant looks thoughtful...."How about if you lot manage to save the city I get well paid to remake metal parts such as the gates of Cauldron? Do you have the authority to enter such a contract?"


Male Human Fighter 8 I AC 28 T 13 FF 26 l HP 92/136 l F +11/15* R +4 W +2/4* l Init +2 l Perc +11

"We know lots'eh big-wigs'n Cauldron," Broccan replies. "We've saved th' city loads'eh times, too. Jus' sayin'"


"That sounds reasonable, and I also have heard of a smithing contest run in the town of torch once a year, Torch lies next to a volcano and uses even uses the heat from it for some of the forges.
And the prize the best smith is awarded is a number of official government contracts for the area with includes a number of other towns in the area for the year."

He also does not know what she really is.


Male Dwarven Warpriest 7; 53/77 hp; F7 R4 W8

Edrukk nods and points at Alkaid, "There be yer best bet. Mebbe better 'n what yer doin' today." He looks at the cage, "Speakin' o' that, what 'r ye doin' today? Seems a right fancy birdcage - and big, too!"


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

"Well let me finish up this last one and we can meet up near cauldron....take a look at it if you like..."
How would he know???

He points at the weird coffin....

The coffin is further from the forge, which the giant cranks up to high as he begins once again hammering away on a price of heated metal....

You are far enough away not to be damaged by the heat.....

Bang, bang, bang, bangitty, bang, bang....it is impossible to talk with the giant hammering away....


Rogue 2/Cleric of Pharasma 6 | HP = 63/70 | AC = 15 | Initiative +4 | CMD – 17 | CMB – +5 | F +6 | R +7 | W +7

Any Knowledge checks to figure out what the thing could possibly be used for?


Male Dwarven Warpriest 7; 53/77 hp; F7 R4 W8

How would he know what?


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

Alkaid is thinking the giant might know what she is, but that is not the case.......

This strange sight caught your attention Bone casket?

Obviously it is forged from silver and platinum and even melted down would hold great value.

Detect magic

Spoiler:
The ceiling and furnace lights

300 pounds worth about 2,000 gold coins

Mystical symbols etched on the surface. Knowledge arcane DC 24

Spoiler:
conjuration, abjuration and necromancy are all involved


Rogue 2/Cleric of Pharasma 6 | HP = 63/70 | AC = 15 | Initiative +4 | CMD – 17 | CMB – +5 | F +6 | R +7 | W +7

Kythel casts Detect Magic.

DM:
Don't quite follow the furnace and lights above radiate magic?

Knowledge Arcana 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (18) + 4 = 22

Kythel shakes his head, "I cannot decipher it, too many connections do not make sense to me".


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

Kythel said something to you.....
"I ca *clang* decipher *clang* many *clang* ions do not *clang*sense to *clang*".

Kythel realizes that the the lighting in the room is magical and that the furnace is utilizing magic to burn hotter than a normal forge....

Kythel

Spoiler:
Also some items on the giant radiate magic

Interestingly the strange sarcophagus, though intricately etched with runes and writings most magical in nature the magic has yet to be cast onto it.....


Male Human Fighter 8 I AC 28 T 13 FF 26 l HP 92/136 l F +11/15* R +4 W +2/4* l Init +2 l Perc +11

"Dinneh'ee jus' agree t' stop make'n evil thins" Broccan asks. "Why'zee still work'n on this bone box?"


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

Apparently he agreed to not do any more after he finished this job...

AlkaidWhat did the giant think about this thing and what it is for?

Giant's thought edited for clarity

Spoiler:
I have work to do these soul cages are not going to make themselves and they need more of them for that tree of shackled souls thing...

When the artifact is complete and a planar rift to the abyss opens I will be long gone....


after they leave the room she fills in the others (look at spoiler above)


Rogue 2/Cleric of Pharasma 6 | HP = 63/70 | AC = 15 | Initiative +4 | CMD – 17 | CMB – +5 | F +6 | R +7 | W +7

Assuming the Giant is out of earshot.

"I do not know what all of that means but it cannot be good. We may well need to destroy these artifacts and the sooner the better! Shall we try to find Alec first or resolve this now?"


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

Outside of the room, with the door closed and the hammering of the fire giant continuing, it is unlikely that he will hear anything you have to say to each other.....

For future reference I will assume that Kythel made a rubbing of the etchings of the soulcage to look at later on...when he might have access to an NPC or library to help with the task....


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

You have plenty of time to regroup and heal before deciding where else you need to go or need to do.


I think we check out some more rooms


Male Dwarven Warpriest 7; 53/77 hp; F7 R4 W8

Lead on, fair lady.


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

As you head toward the next area on the map V9 the passageway narrows, winds around and becomes rougher, and the glow of torchlight can be seen up ahead.

Will you be sneaking in charging in or just walking in?


Alkaid moves quietly as she walks


Male Human Fighter 8 I AC 28 T 13 FF 26 l HP 92/136 l F +11/15* R +4 W +2/4* l Init +2 l Perc +11

Broccan tries not to make too much noise as he walks in his suit of plate covered in spikes.


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

I will count that as just walking in....

1d2 ⇒ 2
On a 1 the noise is familiar to the occupants of the room, on a 2 it is noticeably different....

Five hulking giants occupy this room, each with two heads. Each head has a porcine face with a shovel jaw and protruding lower canines like a boar’s tusks. The rest of the teeth are large and rotten. Their stringy hair is filthy, just like the rest of them....

Knowledge (Nature)

DC 16

Spoiler:
this two-headed giant is an ettin, a vicious and unpredictable nocturnal hunter. This result reveals all giant traits.

DC 21

Spoiler:
Though not particularly intelligent, ettins are skilled and cunning fighters. They are supremely strong and can fight very effectively with two weapons as each head controls one of its arms. Ettins speak a pidgin language of their own made up of a mix of Orc, Goblin and Giant.

DC 26

Spoiler:
Ettins have good senses and can see well in poor light conditions. They typically use ambushes to initiate combat, but then fight relentlessly until all enemies are dead. Ettins virtually never bathe and their stench is so strong that they almost always ambush from downwind to avoid being detected.

They look at you stupidly as you enter...

"Who are you?"

Initiative 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (11) + 8 = 19
Beat that!


init: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (16) + 6 = 22


M somewhat akin to a kender Y / MA

You have won the initiative, and may attack if you so choose...
