Gah! Sorry, Sorry!

(Enlarge Person/other Mods: present AC: 18/present CMD: 24, present Reach: 15', present Slam damage: 2d6 + 9 Bludgeoning.)

Bristling with power, Fancy braces herself to meet any oncoming attack by the creature.

Hold action to initiate a Shove Maneuver if the Hydra attempts to close with any of us. CMB is presently 12.

The hydra, still shuddering in pain, lumbers forward slowly all five of its heads regarding you with a look of rage mixed in with hunger on its heads. Even as you watch the creature approach, you can see the arrow wound already starting to close up. Hydra moves 40' and Fast heals damage.

Round 1: Carridan, Gared, Fancy (held action), Hydra, Horven, Carmina, Yamyra, Jasper.

MAP

A quick note here: Fancy and the Hydra have the same initiative so their actions will be resolved simultaneously.

Horven loads his crossbow with a regular bolt and fires as the hydra moves up, aiming in the same general area Gared did.

Attack: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (12) + 8 = 20; If that hits: 1d6 ⇒ 5

Horven's shot causes another wound to open up on the hydra's body, adding to the blood trickling down the creature's body and pooling on the cave floor.

Round 1: Carridan, Gared, Fancy (held action), Hydra, Horven, Carmina, Yamyra, Jasper.

Carmina moves a little closer and joins in battering the hydra from a distance with a trio of magical energy bolts inerrantly flying towards the many-headed beast.

Carmina strides forth and looses her magic at the hydra, which collapses to the ground unmoving. The hydra takes 8 points of damage.

Round 1: Carridan, Gared, Fancy (held action), Hydra, Horven, Carmina, Yamyra, Jasper.

"Oh! Well done!" Yamyra cries as her companions cause the beast to fall.

Standard/Free action, cheer for her friends.

Jasper mutters to himself softly as the combat ended in a blink of an eye. All is quiet now except for the sounds of the hydra breathing shallowly from its multiple heads.

Round 2: Everyone, Hydra.

"It's not dead. What do we do?" Horven asks, loading another bolt and waiting for advice.

Hold until someone tells Horven something useful pertaining to the hydra.

Gared continued his assault for another turn to see if it would be enough to kill the creature and called out to Horven, "We might have to cut off it's heads, or destroy them, maybe with fire or acid?"

Eric, do you want me to make more attack rolls here?

Grand Lodge

Wishes there was a Sheila Heidmarch avatar... NOT ANYMORE!!!

No Gared, that will not be necessary. I just wanted to see if you would leave it to fast heal.

Gared sends a couple of arrows into the hydras body, making sure it is no longer breathing. It takes a couple of shots but you can see the hydra is now truly dead.

COMBAT OVER.

Gared: Congrats! you just leveled up to 5th level! You will be able to level up when you rest this evening.

Carridan exhales a breath he didn't realize he was holding as Gared puts the hydra down. "I- I've never seen one of these before. It's a, a hydra? Oh my." Hoping the hydra to be a solitary predator, Carridan begins rooting about in the cave.

Horven and Carridan scour the cave thoroughly but find nothing else of note.

The cave curls to the south, rising nearly 30 feet above the surrounding bog. A tunnel at the far end that’s too small for the hydra to navigate slopes back downward and continues onward...

I shall post the next chamber when I get home from work.

As you travel down the passage you all soon lose track of the distance as the passageway blurs together in a seemingly endless display of rocks and wall. Gared however estimates the distance at almost a mile underground however.

The intersection of four tunnels forms a sizable cave here. The domed ceiling rises to a height of twenty feet, while near the center of this cave stands a monument made of polished black basalt, seven-sided with the same great rune carved on each face. The top portion of the monument has broken away, revealing what appears to be a hollow space within in the shape of a female figure. An astounding number of strange albino insectoid creatures, each the size of a man’s finger, scuttle and scurry along the walls.

What knowledge check would be used for the insects?

Gared looked torn between a disturbed fascination with the insects and interest in the stone work that only a dwarf could muster.

Grand Lodge

Wishes there was a Sheila Heidmarch avatar... NOT ANYMORE!!!

Carridan recognizes the insects as solifugids, which are basically harmless if a tad disturbing.

As you look around the cave further, Gared spots a couple of larger solifugids clinging to the cave walls, one on each side of the chamber. Horven's keen eyes spots a third one at the far end of the cave. Those Albino Cave solifugids are a far more serious threat as they are well known for their aggressive hunting patterns.

I will get an updated map later this evening.

Yamyra and Gared, in order to learn more of the statue you need to get next to it.

Thanks, that map works. :)

Carmina doesn't see much from her position, but hears the worried words of Horven and Carridan.

"What's happening? Is there something ahead?"

"The cave is- is crawling with solifugids. Somewhere in between giant spiders and scorpions, they're normally not a threat and are pretty harmless, but if something were to stir this many up?" An involuntary shudder ripples through Carridan's shoulders and down his back as a look of dismay clouds his worried face.


Male Dwarf Zen Archer Monk 3//Preacher 1, HP: 38/38, AC(wMA) 20 /t 16 /f 18, F 8, R 5, W 9,(+3 vs spells/poison) Init +2, PasPer 21(23 stone), Darkvision 60'

Gared nods as Carridan speaks then points out across the cavern.
"There's some particularly large ones on the walls there. Might be more. Might decide we look to be a tasty meal, too. The old dwarf stroked his beard thoughtfully. "I'm inclined to put a few arrows in one and see if doesn't scare off the others or make it clear what we're up against."

Despite the monstrosity they had just encountered and the disturbing decor of the groups surroundings, Gared felt right at home underground. The dwarf's unscathed composure was revealed by an easy stance and a lack of any dwarven accent accompanying his words.

"What Gared said," Horven says with a chuckle.

"Bugs, eh?" Carmina says and retrieves a small vial from her backpack.

The vial's Alchemist's fire.

"Big ones?" Carridan looks to where Horven and Gared indicate and another shudder ripples through his frame. "I'd- I'd almost rather there was another hydra to deal with." Taking in a steadying breath, he then offers, "I could call up a mist to cover our passage. We might be able to slip through without them noticing us if we're careful."

I have obscuring mist and fog cloud available as domain spells, if we'd care to give either one a try.


Male Halfling Rogue 5; HP: 35/35; AC: 19, T: 15, FF: 15; Fort: +3, Ref: +9, Will: +3 (+5 vs Fear, +2 vs illusions); Initiative: +4; Perception: +20 (+2 vs traps), Passive Perception: 30

"Worth a try."

"While I am loathe to present violence as a first choice, we do have another option." Yamyra opines.

Carridan looks questioningly to Carmina and Gared, then to the others. "Ok then. Hopefully this works." Carridan shudders again then, provided no one objects, begins casting a spell.

As he nears the completion of it, thick tendrils of fog snake in from each of the open passages, gathering together in the center of the chamber. In the span of just a few quick breaths, the room is filled with a thick, still fog hiding the solifugids and their larger ilk from sight. The only evidence of their presence is the eerie clicking and chittering sounds which, while slightly muted by the fog, still echo quietly in the tunnel.

"Provided no strong blasts of wind come gusting up any of these tunnels, the fog should last at least half an hour."

I'll go with fog cloud since I can cast it in the center of the chamber from a safe distance without risk of upsetting the larger solifugids. No vision beyond 5 feet within the cloud, so we'll want to stay close together as we pass through. Anyone in particular care to take point and lead our caravan through the fog?

As Carridan's spell takes effect the cave becomes almost completely obscured by the heavy mist. With Horven leading the way you enter the mist using the walls as a guide and staying close to the sides of the cave. Fortunately while the sounds of the solifugids echo eerily in the mist shrouded cave, the sounds do not grow any louder.

Congrats on bypassing this encounter guys! Which passage did you want to head to?


Female Tiefling (Demonspawn) Sorcerer 5 (Abyssal) PP=11 HP: 37/39 AC 18 (Touch 12, FF 16) Claws 9/9

Probably the opposite one?

The tunnel on the opposite side of where we came in?

Yeah, that's what I meant.

Nice thinking guys! Gared would want to aim for further in the cavers system, attempting to avoid any passages that might lead to the frogs and trogs caves, so maybe a knowledge or perception check to figure that out? If it's not clear, opposite works.

You manage to weave your way through the cave successfully without attracting the attention of the solifugids and work your way to the passage beyond. You travel almost another full mile before reaching a chamber up ahead. The rough cave walls give way to a chamber of worked stone, with walls made of blue-veined white marble. The ceiling is supported by columns masterfully sculpted to depict voluptuous warrior women wielding two-headed guisarmes, with each column unique and strikingly detailed. At the center of the room, a fifteen-foot-square shaft leads down into the darkness below.

Carmina walks to the edge of the shaft and stares at the abyss as far as her darkvision allows.

Perception: 1d2 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 3 = 5

Can she see the bottom of the shaft?

Looking at the masonry and columns, Carridan nods his head. "I think we found the place all right. I didn't expect it to be such a long trip through the caves, but I think we're here."


Male Dwarf Zen Archer Monk 3//Preacher 1, HP: 38/38, AC(wMA) 20 /t 16 /f 18, F 8, R 5, W 9,(+3 vs spells/poison) Init +2, PasPer 21(23 stone), Darkvision 60'

Gared peered down the shaft beside the tiefling. As he turned his ears to the passage as much as his eyes, the dwarf rumaged through his pack to pull out some twine and a fishing hook, muttering an orison as he did so that caused the latter to glow brightly. "Shall we be fishing for some illumination, milady?" He tossed a wink to Carmina as he spoke in a almost playful yet hushed tone.

Gared will ask Horven to use his keen ears to see what he can hear from the pit if 60 darkvision isn't enough to see anything of interest, and lower the lit hook down as much as its 50 foot length to extend the groups vision.
