Spellcraft: 1d20 + 7 + 1 ⇒ (14) + 7 + 1 = 22, to recognize that Ganer is under the effects of Suggestion.
"As Gared says, better to eliminate the present threat before attending to others..."
"Besides, we have no certainty that they are even still there since we left them."
Imp Escape grapple DC 17: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (8) + 3 = 11 failed!
As Ganer pleads for the group to cease their attacks against the imp Suzerain, Yamyra detects an odd note in his voice. She is reasonable certain Ganer is under some form of magical compulsion. FYI, it would be a Knowledge Arcana check to Identify a spell effect that is already in place. Spellcraft is for a spell that is being cast, but since you have the same rank for both skills, it does not matter this time.
The imp does not idle here as it struggles to escape the grasp of the eidolon. Fortunately for you, Fancy is able to hang on, however she notes with some dismay the wounds on the imps body are already beginning to close.
Round 2: Everyone, Imp.
No changes to the map have been made.
1d20 + 5 ⇒ (15) + 5 = 20 1d8 + 7 ⇒ (7) + 7 = 14
1d20 + 5 ⇒ (3) + 5 = 8 1d8 + 7 ⇒ (6) + 7 = 13
Gared fired another pair of silver tipped arrows at the struggling imp, hoping to banish the thing before it healed its wounds.
"Excellent point. I'm sure the others will catch up if you & I make our way." Yamyra responds to Ganer's declaration. "We should not dally." She adds, turning to the North.
'I will try to slow him down. Keep at the fiend. Once we are out of hearing, tell the others what I'm doing."
Ganer nodded at Yamyra, and began to head for the exit. After a few paces, he abruptly stopped and turned back toward the fight. "Carmina! Come with us, the others can handle this one." He called, and then began making his way toward the exit.
Ganer in tow, Yamyra heads North, towards the Circle-scribed room.
Obviously, this exchange only takes place if/once Ganer goes off with Yamyra, so keep that in mind. I'm looking at YOU, Carmina...
When Ganer asks her to drop what she's doing in favour of going off to hunt another imp who hasn't brothered them all that much, Carmina silently starts wondering whether Ganer has lost his mind.
After a bit of deliberation she comes to the conclusion that the other tiefling has indeed gone mad. With a shrug, she resumes what she was doing, that is, whacking the imp with her morningstar.
Attack: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21
Damage: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (8) + 5 = 13
Carmina shrugs off her fellow tiefling's rambling words and strikes the held imp a nasty blow. The imp again shrieks in pain while Fancy once again struggles to hold the imp still. Ganer's first arrow pierces the center of the foul creature and its shrieks are cut off. The eidolon has the pleasure of feeling the imp's body go limp and start to turn into a puddle of goo as you have seen the other devils do when slain.
Gared feels the compulsion exit his mind even before he has a chance to leave the room.
COMBAT OVER. Gared you are no longer under any compulsions.
Okay, seriously. No more grappling. At least not in this dungeon. It doesn't seem to end well...
"Ganer? Are you alright?" Yamyra queries as her companion, previously so intent on engaging the other fiends, now stops listlessly.
Ganer looked around the room for several moments, apparently confused. He found his way to the imp corpse, and inspected it as if he'd never seen such a thing. "Hmm, I had hoped to convince him to disable the trap for us. It seems as though something went wrong in that plan."
Fancy finishes her exploration. An alcove to the south of this empty room is partially blocked by a curtain of red mesh formed from fine steel chains, rusty from long exposure. Passing through the alcove shows the walls of the room beyond the curtain are marred by crude inscriptions rendered in charcoal. These scribblings are written in Infernal and repeatedly claim the “domain” in the name of the “Suzerain of Little Erebus.” The chamber is otherwise empty.
At Carmina's suggestion, Yamyra turns. "One; you know as well as I do that 'corpse-theft' is illegal in Magnimar, with much more punitive punishments than anything else save murder.
Two; we have yet to encounter any bodies you could even use it on down here.
Finally; taking a poor, dead body & heaving out of it's well-deserved rest sounds a bit too...
Infernal if you ask me. You wouldn't want someone to mistake you for some kind of devil now would you?" Her eyebrow arches at the last.
"Ganer, given that we now seem to have inadvertently accomplished the 'task' set out before us by that...
thing, farther in, do you think we should 'deal' with it as well, or consider ourselves fortunate to have escaped with our skins intact & avoid it strenuously?"
"It would depend. Do you trust me to lie?" Ganer paused, either for effect or waiting for a response. That he continued before Yamyra had a chance to answer suggested the former. No deal was struck, and no oath given, so he owes us nothing unless we can convince him that we have reconsidered his offer to slay the still living Suzerain. And if he detects deception, that would likely be regarded as breach of agreement. All of that assumes that he doesn't know that Suzerain is dead by the time we arrive, which presumes that he is an entirely unworthy lord. It would be more prudent to simply press on, but I do not know which is the better choice."
Gared spat on the ground where the imp had dissolved into the ground. "I think getting some damned answers out o' the other devil might help us understand what the Infernal things be doing here. I'm not saying we should do anything but banish it as well, but not until we've learned what we can." The dwarf did not look pleased.
