Knowledge:Planes DC17:
This thing is a Greater Barghest, a denizen of one of the hells! It is nearly impossible to hit, unless your weapon is enchanted.

Players take your turn in order of posting, enemies went first.


The big half giant watches the nasty dog shred through half plate, his stone hide, and his psychic shield!!!!

Brin looks at the dog with surprise and respect. His psionically enhanced body takes an incredible pounding as he readies his riposte.

76/51hp to 33/51hp 27AC

Female Human (Varisian) Bard (Dervish Dancer)/ Rogue (Acrobat) Gestalt L4 | AC 21 (T16 FF16) CMD19 | HP 30/33 | Saves F3 R8 W3 | Percep +3 | Status: OK

Idril gasped at the appearance of the monster tearing into Brin.
Swinging her bladed scarf free, she entered the spinning Battle Dance and raced like a tornado through the doorway and around the fire, to [A,2].
At the flank of the beast, she snapped her bladed scarf.
Bladed scarf attack: 1d20 + 8 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 8 + 1 = 13 Miss.

But she missed.

(ooc)Cilyanka_____

Round 3_____

TACTICAL SITUATION

Despite the massive damage it took from Brin, it continues to attack Brin in a frenzy.
Bite attack vs Brin: 1d20 + 14 + 1 + 2 ⇒ (15) + 14 + 1 + 2 = 32 for a possible 1d8 + 6 + 1 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 6 + 1 + 2 = 13 damage.

Players take your turn in order of posting, enemies went first.


5/51hp and psionic focus expended to gain immediate attack this round

Path Maneuvre:
Beginning at 3rd level, you can expend your psionic focus as an immediate action when an enemy attacks you to make a single melee attack against that enemy and then take a 5-foot step. The enemy’s attack is resolved before you take your action. At 8th level and every five psychic warrior levels thereafter, you gain a +1 competence bonus on the attack and damage rolls made for this attack.

Brin responds to the first attack, depleting his focus on the mind energy as he does so. Spitting out blood, Brin hammers his enchanted/psychic blade into the dog twice trying to stop the lethal onslaught, sure he can't take another hit.

attack in response/damage: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (13) + 11 = 243d6 + 1d8 + 14 ⇒ (1, 1, 6) + (2) + 14 = 24
Then he attacks again after recharging his sword with a limited amount of psychic energy.
std attack/damage: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (18) + 11 = 293d6 + 1d8 + 14 ⇒ (2, 1, 1) + (2) + 14 = 20

Immediate attack in response to melee attack, move=recharge sword, std=attack again

trip attempt vs CMD: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (7) + 12 = 19

If the dog is still standing, Brin requests aid. "A little help." Holding his thumb and index finger slightly apart.


HP: 73/73 Saves: +6,+6,+6, Cleric(theologian) + Brawler 5

Alkaid goes all out on the beast, with a high kick and leg drop attack

Attack1: 1d20 + 7 + 2 ⇒ (11) + 7 + 2 = 20
Damage: 1d8 + 3 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 3 + 2 = 11

Attack2: 1d20 + 7 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 7 + 2 = 13
Damage: 1d8 + 3 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 3 + 2 = 11


Female Human (Varisian) Bard (Dervish Dancer)/ Rogue (Acrobat) Gestalt L4 | AC 21 (T16 FF16) CMD19 | HP 30/33 | Saves F3 R8 W3 | Percep +3 | Status: OK

Round 3_____

Brindolfin Cloudcap_____
5/51hp and psionic focus expended to gain immediate attack this round
Brin responds to the first attack, depleting his focus on the mind energy as he does so. Spitting out blood, Brin hammers his enchanted/psychic blade into the dog twice trying to stop the lethal onslaught, sure he can't take another hit.

He hit again and again, for enormous damage, but he cannot trip the beast, and despite its horrible wounds, its still standing!
If the dog is still standing, Brin requests aid. "A little help." Holding his thumb and index finger slightly apart.

Alkaid_____
Alkaid goes all out on the beast, with a high kick and leg drop attack
She hits it once for some damage, and missed the other.

Idril Ssethan_____
Idril danced into flanking the beast, then attacked! But missed again.

Cilyanka_____
Cil lunges to attack.
And the black blade plunged into the beast up to the hilt. The beast gave a great despairing howl, then evaporated in a blast of brimstone and hellfire, leaving nothing but a great scorchmark on the floor.

The Battle is Over.


"Wow! I think I could us some healing!!!

Without the temp hp I would have been toast. Do not know if we have a healing wand.

The big half-giant looks around at the world with an appreciation for his own mortality.
"Those dogs are dangerous. I can't face another in this shape."


Female Human (Varisian) Bard (Dervish Dancer)/ Rogue (Acrobat) Gestalt L4 | AC 21 (T16 FF16) CMD19 | HP 30/33 | Saves F3 R8 W3 | Percep +3 | Status: OK

"THAT was no dog." Said Idril as she wrapped her bladed scarf about her again. "Dogs don't evaporate in a cloud of brimstone when killed."
She started looking around curiously.
Perception: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (17) + 3 = 20
"And why was it here in the first place?"


"Well, we can return or heal, but I don't want to see the doggie's angry mate in my condition."


Female Human (Varisian) Bard (Dervish Dancer)/ Rogue (Acrobat) Gestalt L4 | AC 21 (T16 FF16) CMD19 | HP 30/33 | Saves F3 R8 W3 | Percep +3 | Status: OK

Idly scuffing her shoe on the ground, Idril frowns and looks more closely.
"What on earth are those markings on the floor?" She asked out loud.


Knowledge:Arcana DC20 or Spellcraft DC15:

The marks are of a Circle of Binding (Hedged Prison), specifically made for a denizen of the Hells or maybe Sinspawn.

Detect Magic:
You detect minor magic from the candles, more substantial magic from the fire pit and a section of the back wall.

Perception DC25:
You find a secret alcove, looted long ago.

Perception DC25:
You find a secret alcove, empty but for a coffer filled with what looks like white sand.


HP: 73/73 Saves: +6,+6,+6, Cleric(theologian) + Brawler 5

Perception: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (18) + 9 = 27

"Looks like some hidden alcoves over here."


Alkaid finds a couple of secret compartments, only one has anything of value.
She pulls out a small antique coffer, richly carved and decorated in gold and gems. Opening it she finds it filled with white sand; and combing through it, she finds a magic ring.


Can anyone present Identify magic items?


Translating the runes, you realize that the whole room was designed to confine a creature from the Hells. It was even named; a Greater Barghest named Malfeshnekor. You realize that that creature had been confined here since at least the fall of the Thassilonian empire, countless millenia ago.

Some study and appraisal reveals the enchantment on the ring. It is a Ring of Force Shield.
The candles turn out to be Eternal Candles; they burn without heat or consumption, but only yield shadowy light in a 5 foot radius. Each one is worth 25gp and there turn out to be sixty of them altogether.


ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED!: "Thistletop". The goblin lair of Thistletop has been cleared, and the plot to destroy Sandpoint by combining goblin tribes has been averted.
ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED!: "Burnt Offerings". You have completed the first book of Rise of the Runelords.


You are able to leave Thistletop and return to Sandpoint, taking the heavy warhorse (who's name turns out to be Shadowmist, an advanced heavy warhorse) with you. The mercenary Orik Vankaskerkin evacuated ahead of you, aparently taking Lyrie with him.
You also return briefly in an expedition to get that one ton bronz/gold helm, worth 3,000 gp.

The townsfolk throw you a celebration, parade you around on their shoulders, and do not permit you to pay for rooms or meals.
For a week.
Then everything goes back to normal.

You are in downtime now, to rest, recover hitpoints or stat damage, to train or even craft items.
