Palace of the Vampire Queen

Game Master Terquem

On the Dwarven Island of Karrita Morianna the daughter of the King has been taken by an undead horde, and her whereabouts are unknown. | Level 1 | Level 2 | Level 3 | Western Karrita Morianna | Western Counties | Encounter Map


3,151 to 3,187 of 3,187 << first < prev | 54 | 55 | 56 | 57 | 58 | 59 | 60 | 61 | 62 | 63 | 64 | next > last >>

Wouldn't the demon be dangling upside down from the chain around his feet? Sort of like a side of meat at the butcher shop?

That's the mental image I had too - if the pit is created where he is, then he would be depending from the chain into the cavity made below him, by his leg where it is chain'd and thus, initially, upside down...

Or a turkey leg on a rope. I was unsure so I left the description up to Terquem plus I have no idea if this demon succeeds on his save either. He would also likely hit the opposing wall with a delightful thud as he is standing at the far edge of his chain. this seems like a much more amusing solution than fighting him.

I can envision Mae using the chain like rope and swinging around the pit each time with a delightful thud of the demon hitting the wall.

In a flash the floor disappears below the demon.

In a flash the floor disappears below the demon.

The demon is startled, and leaps forward only to be immediately yanked backward by the short chain around his ankle. As he falls into the pit his wings unfold, and then strike the walls of the pit before they reach their full extent.

He continues to fall until he reaches the end of the chain and he screams as his weight is caught and the cold iron digs savagely into his ankle drawing blood. With his wing partially unfolded he pivots in the air until his head is pointing downward. He spins a full time scraping his wings against the pit, screaming his frustration.

You have something like 30 seconds to rush the door, which can be opened by standing next to the pit. No roll is required to get through the door once it is opened.

Moralane and Atharessa run toward the door.

"Move it, Move it!" Rownig rusn to the door to get it opened.

Windel follows bringing up the rear. "He offer'd you his cigar...he gave you a chance."


HP 31/37, AC 18/21, CMD 13, Fort +5, Ref +10, Will +6, Init +5, Per +8, Charmed Life 3/3, Panache 2/2

Hal ushers everyone past, taking up the rear position, hoping they could all get through in time.

Miagnik hadn't been sure what to expect when Stephanie began speaking again to the Demon. The informatuon that his fire would be ineffective left him feeling lost as to what to do. The finality in her "Goodbye" before a hole sprung into being beneath the Demon surprised him and made him grin at her before Rownig began shouting at everyone to get out of the room. "Nice job, Stephanie." he then moved with the rest of the group.

Mae's lips curl in disdain.

"Oldest trick in the book..." she murmurs as she flies past after the others...

"Mel, when was the last time you read a book?" Hal asked dryly.


Female Goblin Barbarian 5; HP 58/58/ 68/68; AC 23 T 15 FF 19; Fort +6; Ref +5; Will +1/+3; Init +6; Per +10; CMB +6; CMD 20; Spd 40 ft.

"One does not read oneself. One is read to!" the princess returns just as easily...

"Not all of us were so lucky." Miagnik mused. "Some of us had to learn."

"Mae did the book have pictures?" He smiles.

Looks like the postmonster stopped by for a snack. Lucky me.

Stephanie looks down at her shoes and smiles a bit at the compliment It wasn't like I did all that much. However I think.. just this once it would be better to not bother to correct them.

the princess looking over to her sister smiling at the interactions. " I'm sure Mae has a tome or two. If I remember correctly last time you informed me they were excellent for crushing nuts and other shelled things with. Perhaps we can have her be a storyteller next time we camp." The gnome suggests as she recalls the story in question with a small smile. She certainly hadn't been pleased at the time, but such was the wonder of time softening things.

*scritch*
A ghost and an owl sat in a room.
*scritch scritch*

"dumb mistress leaving me alone with a door and a whimpy goblin Librarar.. Librivia.. book slave. I'll show them! I'll show them all!"
The owl appeared to be scratching a rather complicated plan involving bacon, projectile poop, heavy books and a lidded pit trap while hooting in a rather humanoid approximation of an evil laugh.

Rushing quickly, but taking care to avoid the pit, the party crossed the room, through the door and into the next chamber.

The room was exactly the same size as the previous chamber and empty of any furnishings. Once everyone was crowded in safely, the next door was approached with trepidation.

With a gentle shove the door swung open silently.

And finally something different was encountered.

Although the room was the same size as before, there was no door leaving this room at the other end.

There was a simple, small bed against the west wall, a desk and a chair next to that. A young dwarven girl lay sleeping on the bed. She was dressed in peasant garb, and she wore a blindfold over her eyes. She was sleeping, and looked peaceful, though her form looked a bit lean, she did not appear to be malnourished or mistreated. On the desk was a bowl, filled with small loaves of bread and some dried fruit, nuts, and cheese.

You can see a chain, with a pad lock, around the girls left ankle and it is attached to the foot of the bed.

Against the east wall of this room is a strange, short, stone object. It could be an altar, but is shaped more like a small pillar. The top is only two to maybe three feet high. It is about one foot square and the top is indented and has an image of a open hand carved into it.


HP 31/37, AC 18/21, CMD 13, Fort +5, Ref +10, Will +6, Init +5, Per +8, Charmed Life 3/3, Panache 2/2

Hal knew he wasn't the right person to wake the sleeping girl. He looked to Altheressa, Moralane and Stephanie.

Rownig gets a sinking feeling in his belly. No way out. Trapped! He quickly studies the walls. "Ummm, Princess..." He gulps. "...how long is that pit going to be there?"

perception: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (15) + 10 = 25

Windel approaches the "altar" looking area. He studies it. Biting his lower lip.

know religion: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (17) + 7 = 24

He is careful not to touch anything.

Mae smacks her morningstar meaningfully into her palm.

"This one a demon too? Should I "wake" her up?"


Male Goblin Sorcerer (Draconic) lvl.5, (Hp. 28/28, Ac.16 [24], Touch. Ac. 15, Flat Footed Ac. 13 [21], Fort. +1, Refl. +4, Will. +5, Perception +7)

"No, Mae!" Miagnik nearly leaped to get in front of Marlodakh. "I'll wake her up, you might... startle her." Miagnik said, walking over to the bed.

He looked at the Dwarven girl before reaching out to gently shake her arm.

"Hello there. Wake up little one. My name is Miagnik. Don't be afraid, we aren't here to harm you." he spoke gently with a soothing voice.

diplomacy: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (14) + 2 = 16

Mae does a double take and thenscoots in close to give her best approximation of a friendly smile over Miagnik's shoulder...

Aid Another: Diplomacy: 1d20 - 1 ⇒ (16) - 1 = 15


Female Gnome (Dwarf/goblin half blood) Wizard/5, HP 26/26 (2 NL), AC 12 (T-12, FF-11), Fort +0 Ref +4 Will +4 ---- Init. +6, Perc. +2

Well its entirely possible shes another demon. I mean they said she was a seer but I don't know if there is anything else to that. She could be insane from having been down here or cursed to help her master with magic like the demons. Oh and what if she lies? do.. do I have to shoot her with a acid bubble to test if she's demonic? what if she's just naturally resistant to acid? I'd hate to falsely con-"
Stephanie who had been considering how best to approach the sleeping woman blinks seeing the job already done.
Damn.
The gnome giving Hallister a sheepish expression and a silent prayer to the pair that her more grim possibilities did not turn out to be correct.

Rownig:
You quickly scan the room for anything unusual, and you do not see any sign of a trap. The Dwarven girl looks to you like she is no more than a teen ager. Her peasant dress is clearly of the kind worn by people in the county controlled by Sir Guisse, which has a large population of destitute dwarven people

Windel:
The Altar has no religious significance that you can determine. However, the style of dress of the young Dwarven girl and her blindfold suggest she is a follower of the Goddess Porineylla. There are no temples to Porineylla, nor is she regularly worshipped by most “good” folk. She is not an evil Deity, but more like a troubling spirit in the Dwarven pantheon., Her name means, “the middle child” and this in Dwarven culture represents a kind of unlikeable situation to be in (as when a man or a woman is in a position to “accept an offer they can’t refuse” people will say that person might as well be like the middle child in the family). Porineylla is said to be a young blind dwarven woman, not specifically a child, and is the Dwarven Goddess of prophecy, witchcraft, and all arcane mysteries

When Miagnik wakes the young girl, she yawns mightily, gets up into a sitting positin, slowly, easing her leg over the edge of the bed so as to not pull sharply on the chain, and folds he hands in her lap, before saying softly

I know

Miagnik blinked. "Oh. Well then, what's your name? How long have you been here?"


Female Gnome (Dwarf/goblin half blood) Wizard/5, HP 26/26 (2 NL), AC 12 (T-12, FF-11), Fort +0 Ref +4 Will +4 ---- Init. +6, Perc. +2

Stephaine jerks slightly toward their newest and demonic companion before suppressing her scholastic zeal. She can say it. Outing him for forgetting what Luelleschia just said would be rude. I know Maelodahk was asleep for most of that. It was nice to have someone I could talk to and use big words though.


male

The girl smiles, and says,

My name is Gabrielle, Gabrielle Guisse


HP 31/37, AC 18/21, CMD 13, Fort +5, Ref +10, Will +6, Init +5, Per +8, Charmed Life 3/3, Panache 2/2

"We're here to get you out of here." Hal said softly. "Sorry 'bout this."

Then he splashed her with Holy Water.

"Gabrielle Guisse? How is it you are here?

"So, your a follow'r of Goddess Porineylla? How'd that happen?" The cleric eyes the youngling critically.


Female Gnome (Dwarf/goblin half blood) Wizard/5, HP 26/26 (2 NL), AC 12 (T-12, FF-11), Fort +0 Ref +4 Will +4 ---- Init. +6, Perc. +2

Stephanie shoots Hallister an offended look before noticing the sigil on the vial. Oh.. he was testing if she was.. Oh. Why didn't I think of that for the last one?

If there is no smoking or other signs of Gabrielle reacting to the blessed water
The gnome moves a few steps closer to the girl and with a quick arcane gesture the liquid Hallister had splashed the young woman with evaporated and leaving her cleaner than she was before.
"Sorry about my companions caution."


male

When Rownig asks the girl how she came to be here, Hallister dowses her with holy water.

The girl is startled by the water thrown on her, and reaches up with her hands to wipe the water off of her face, but even as she does, the water is whisked away magically by a simple wave of Stephanie’s hand.

Well, the girl says softly that I did not see.

What was that for? she asks, and then when Stephanie apologizes Oh, thank you, I understand I think

And then Windel mentions an obscure dwarven goddess.

Keeping her head tilted down the girl answers both questions

I was brought here by Omara, a long time ago, or maybe it was only yesterday. I cannot tell. My father was afraid of me. As a small girl I developed a habit of seeing things that were not there, even though I was blind from birth. Some people in my father’s house believed I had the gift of prophecy. They said it was because of the nature of my conception. I never knew that anything that I could see was a vision of things to come. I couldn’t tell what it was I was seeing. As a child, who was blind, what I saw was in my head and I thought that that was how everyone saw things and that what I was seeing was what was happening around me. I told people what I saw, and they wrote down what I told them and then went away. Eventually people would come and tell my father what my visions meant, and I was told this frightened him.

I was given to Omara, and she brought me here. She dressed me in these cloths and put this blindfold on me, which I cannot remove. I do not know who Porineylle is. I’ve never heard that name before.

I knew you would come, she says

and then points to each of you in turn as she says your name

Hallister, Stephanie, Miagnik, Windel, Maelodakh, Rownig, Atharessa, and Moralane. she says

I saw all of you before, when I was very young. I saw you fighting spiders, and giants, and creatures that would not stay dead, and heard you all call each other by name. I saw you come to recue me from a dark room, a long time ago.

When Omara brought me to this place, at first, she had me telling her all the things I would see. One day I told her I saw a great celebration, a wedding had been about to reach the point when the vows would be spoken and then a great wind blew through the wedding hall and people began to panic and run all around. The wedding was ruined, and the maid of honor fell down and wept so pitifully that nothing could console her. I told her many other things, and she also grew to be afraid of me. She locked me in this room. She comes to me and asks me questions about the things I used to see.


HP 31/37, AC 18/21, CMD 13, Fort +5, Ref +10, Will +6, Init +5, Per +8, Charmed Life 3/3, Panache 2/2

Hal rubbed his brows. Prophesy hurt his head.

"Well, you're right, we're rescuing you. Don't suppose you can choose what kinds of future visions you see?"


M Dwarf Rogue 5, Init 5(7), P10(12traps), HP 35/35, AC 15(16), 13 T, 10 FF, Save F: 3(5 pos/sp), R: 7, W: 3

"Or maybe how we are gonna get you out?" Rownig adds to Hals quesiton.


Male Goblin Sorcerer (Draconic) lvl.5, (Hp. 28/28, Ac.16 [24], Touch. Ac. 15, Flat Footed Ac. 13 [21], Fort. +1, Refl. +4, Will. +5, Perception +7)
Active Spells:

"Ooh, you can see the future?!" Miagnik said in excited amazement. "Did you see anything else about us? Like what we may become later?!"
