"Shall we see where this leads?" Nayce begins moving down the stairs.

Cronin proceeds down.

Male Dwarf Invoker/Divine Philosopher 14

Fanned by angels wings, Guldarin follows.

Greeg walked shoulder to shoulder with Cronin, his weapon and shield ready for trouble. Behind him, he listend to the sound of beating wings and the low growl of the great brown bear. These were counter pointed by the high pitched whisperings of the "two" gnomes as they argued who was the real one and who was the "fake" in an argument they called "Metaphyscial realities".

He sighed and hoped they'd find some giants soon. At least they tended to keep things simple.

Greeg is a simple fellow really, surrounded by complex companiosn :)


Walked backwards into a bunch of trestles and duffed up my back.

Greeg:
Zeric Twognomes is in Hallampour. His player hasn't posted since middle sand giant battle.

The staircase does downwards a long way from here, but at the bottom the light of Andaros reveals that it opens into a larger and wider chamber.

Map follows in my morning.

Rev

Spoiler:
yeah, sorry Rev. I've been busy then sick and only half paying attention to the happenings of the other party members. Will try to keep up better in future. Also, take care of that back, you only get one of those you know.


The group descend and see a four-doored chamber below them. The doors in question are heavy, metal and apparantly rusted shut through long disuse. Also present is a floor map and murals depicting a city. Slightly off centre is a rusted grating. The area also contained two beautifully crafted glass golems which turn their heads to look as the group descends. Their mighty fists clench in anticipation.

What would be my best guess as to how magic interacts with these things?

Arcana 1d20 + 18 ⇒ (2) + 18 = 20


The golems resemble nothing Andaros has ever seen or heard of, but he guesses that they may have some kind of relexive response to magic.


I'm going to defer my action until after Greeg goes since he's the frontliner. I'll see what can back his play.


Andaros pauses and gestures politely towards Greeg.

Added you all to the map. Guldarin is 3 squares up. Movement down stairs is half speed.

Greeg rushed eagerly into the room, closing with the great glass golem to try and prevent it moving in and targetting its companions. He imagined the thing was likely to hit hard so he attempted to knock it from its feet with his first attack and give his companions some time to assist him or engage the far golem.

Move to K19, Attack using my natural reach of 2 using Earthgrasp Strike - Standard Melee 1d20 + 17 ⇒ (8) + 17 = 25 vs AC 1d10 + 8 ⇒ (1) + 8 = 9

If hit, target is knocked prone. Can't stand up until the end of my next turn. First time it stands up, it takes an additional 1d10 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 5 = 9 damage

Current AC 31, Ref 25, Fort 28, Will 26, HP 129, Surges 13.

Edit - <sigh> , see, the dice bot deserts me when the combat starts :)


Greeg moves happily into the room but is brought up short when his opening attack rebounds off the glassy surface of the golem. The giants shout repeated phrases in a strange accent.

Anyone speaking Giant:
"Who is your master? Who gives you permission to be here?"

Although what they are speaking is reconisably Giant, it is also archaic. Nobody has used this particular stress patten for centuries.

The giants ignore Cronin's interruption and repeat themselves. Clearly the name is unknown to them.

Nayce moves into the room and attempts to hex one of the golems, disguising his presence.

Move to M20. Eyebite on G1. 1d20 + 15 ⇒ (13) + 15 = 28 vs Will. 1d6 + 13 ⇒ (2) + 13 = 15 psychic damage on a hit.

2 shrouds on G1.


Nayce's attack hits, dazzling the golem, but the glassy surface has a curious effect. As it shakes its huge head in confusion, the psychic damage rebounds of its body impacting on Greeg and Nayce.

Magical Refraction (Ref). Immediate reaction when hit by non-weapon attack dealing typed damage. Close burst 5 (enemies). On hit target takes 2d6+10 of triggering attack damage type.

Andaros moves to N22 and draws out the Dawnblade as it flares into life. He casts Shadow of the Dawn blade. (his name for the Mordenkaine's Sword power) and a larger twin of that blade assails G1 from square G10

Attack vs Reflex Mordenkain's Sword 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (3) + 14 = 17 damage 1d10 + 8 ⇒ (2) + 8 = 10 force


Until stated otherwise, Andaros will be using his minor actions to sustain the sword effect.


Andaros conjures a sword of eldritch power to smite his foe and can only watch as it bounces off his glassy enemy.

Unaware of Nayce, G1 pummels fruitlessly at the goliath in front of him.

G1 uses Double Attack on Greeg. On hit, target slides one space for each hit.
1d20+21=28. Miss.
1d20+21=26. Miss.

G2 moves to cut off the foot of the stairs.

Rev:
How many squares down is the floor of P15 if I hop down from where I am?


Kevaras:
1 square down.

The drow hops down from the edge of the stairs.

Acrobatics 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (12) + 4 = 16 vs DC 15 to Hop Down.

Compel Obedience
1d20 + 19 ⇒ (13) + 19 = 32 vs G2's Will; 3d8 + 8 ⇒ (7, 1, 7) + 8 = 23 damage.
On Hit: I shift three squares to N13 and G2 is pulled up to five squares to a square adjacent to me.

The paladin lures the golem out of position with some fancy sword work.

Divine Challenge on G2. Kevaras calls upon his patron to punish the golem as harshly as she would those who cast off the chains of fate.

Kevaras moves swiftly to administer a lesson in theology. His pupil is less than appreciative as shards of glass break off and dig into the teacher.

Dram and Dirt stalk forward, and water shoots out from Dram and tries to grasp the legs of the offending golem.


Dram - neither you nor Dirt can move that far (stairs are half speed), but I've put you as close as possible to G1.

The deadly tag team of druid and bear move closer to the fray as Dram does his best to knock G1 off its feet.

Cronin lumbers down the stairs, considering the defenses these golems have shown. Coming to a decision, he (somehow) sheathes his halberd out of sight, shimmers, and then a great eagle is hurtling toward one of the opponents.

Free: Store halberd in Cloak of Deep Pockets
Move: O17.
Minor: Wildshape (eagle as special effect, I don't get a fly speed this way)
Standard: Charge to L15 / Grasping Claws vs G2 Ref (non-weapon, untyped) with flank

On hit, 13 damage and target slowed TEOMNT


If that's a weapon attack, Cronin and Kevaras both take 5 damage.

Cronin's transformation and subsequent rapid arrival takes G2 off guard as the goliath clangs into it.

"Has anyone suggested to them that we're with Faez?" Guldarin moves a little further down the stairs, and unleashes a bolt of lightning at the nearest golem.

Move to R17, asI think the stairs are difficult terrain
Storm Call vs G2, 1d20 + 17 ⇒ (20) + 17 = 37 vs Reflex, 1d8 + 9 ⇒ (4) + 9 = 13 lightning damage, target takes 5 ongoing lightning damage and is dazed (se both)

Edit in response to post below: It's a crit. 3d6 + 17 ⇒ (5, 3, 4) + 17 = 29 lightning damage and the ongoing/dazed.


That looks like a crit so you've most likely done more damage.


M Goliath Cleric 14 / Storm Speaker / Druid

Not weapon


Guldarin sends a lightning bolt arcing into G2 and receives what he has given in return. So too do Dram, Dirt, Kevaras and Cronin.

Magical Refraction (Ref). Close burst 5. On hit target takes 2d6+10 of the triggering attacks damage type.

Resist 5 lightning, and when take lightning damage, 5thp and +1 to primal attacks TEOMNT. Thanks, G!

Male Goliath Warden - Stoneblessed

Greeg whinced as the reflected psychic damge tore into his mind. He cast a reproachful glance over his shoulder at Nayce, but then shrugged it away. It's not as if anyone knew that was going to happen. Seeing the other creture shatter and throw shards of glass over Kevaris as well, he determined to minimise whatever damge was coming his way next.

The creature hadn't landed a blow, but he felt that was more luck than anything else. Calling on the primal nature of teh earth around him, he hardened his skin to that of a stone wall, enabling him to take more punishment than usual.

He then hefted his weapon and struck at the beast, hoping to knock it off balance enough to throw its aim off when it attacked next.

Minor action -Stones endurance - DR 14 till EOMNT

Standard action - Mountain Hammer -Standard Melee 1d20 + 17 ⇒ (11) + 17 = 28 vs AC 2d10 + 8 ⇒ (5, 7) + 8 = 20 damage and target takes a -5 to hit penalty until end of my next turn.

Mark target as free action

Shift to J18 as move action

Current AC 31, Ref 25, Fort 28, Will 26, HP 116, Surges 13


Greeg's blow lands true, and thanks to his foresight, the flying resulting flying shards do him no harm. The resounding blow is enough to pull the golem slightly off balance, making it harder for the creature to aim its own attacks.

The way I'm rolling, a -5 to attacks mean that my boys will be rolling in single digits :D

Male Half-elf Assassin 14 / Obsidian Stalker

Nayce steps up and slashes at the golem from his blade, taking advantage of the golem's inability to see his approach.

2 shrouds on G1.

Move to K20. Blade from the Mist on G1 using 4 shrouds. 1d20 + 19 ⇒ (12) + 19 = 31 vs AC. 2d12 + 18 + 2d8 + 4d8 + 20 ⇒ (3, 4) + 18 + (1, 5) + (8, 2, 6, 3) + 20 = 70 damage on a hit. (6 of that damage is poison.)

I'll gladly take the 5 damage I've got coming to me in exchange for 70 on him.

If he is not slain, after the attack I shift to H21 as an effect of the Blade from the Mist power.


Nayce appears from nowhere and drives his dagger into an almost invisible fissure in the glassy body. As some of the splinters fly towards him, he sees the poison on his blade simply dripping off the shiny surface. Greeg once again has cause to thank his primal ancestors for their protection.

Golems are immune to poison, but you still hurt him a lot.

5 damage to Nayce. 0 to Greeg due to DR.

Time to take my share of the pain.

"By the power of the One Sword!" Andaros moves to K20 invokes the One Sword power on his blade (which is doing normal weapon damage btw)

Attack vs. Reflex 1d20 + 17 ⇒ (17) + 17 = 34 Damage 2d8 + 9 ⇒ (3, 3) + 9 = 15

Secondary Attack vs. Will 1d20 + 17 ⇒ (5) + 17 = 22 If hits, target is dazed until end of my next turn, and the power is not expended.


Andaros moves closer and suffers his share of glassy shards as his blade chips away at the golem. Nayce also suffers, but Greeg remains immune for now.

Primary hits, secondary misses.
5 damage to Nayce and Andaros.

The golems continue to speak in giant, their phrasing never changing and the mention of Faez making no difference at all.

The pair stay put and smash at their nearest foes, attempting to push them towards the rusted doors.

G1 Double Attacks Andaros (at -5). On a hit, target slides 1 square per hit.
1d20+16=17. Miss.
1d20+16=35. Hits. 3d10+9=24
24 damage to Andaros and he slides one square.

G2 turns his attention to Kevaras, beating solidly at the paladin as lightning continues to arc around it.

1d20+21=38. Hits and slide one. 3d10+9=31
1d20+21=39. Hits and slide one. 3d10+9=34
65 damage to Kevaras

G2 save v lightning and ongoing: 1d20+2=8

Greeg strikes at the golem while it is distracted by the bright elf. Oi boyo, focus where the real threat is or you'll be so much broken glass eh! he states in giant

using wardens fury to hit the golem since it attacked someone else while marked by me.1d20 + 17 ⇒ (3) + 17 = 20, vs fort, damage 1d10 + 8 ⇒ (10) + 8 = 18

Edit - sigh


Greeg's weapon makes a pretty tinkling sound, but has no impact on the giant. The golem's eyes flicker towards the goliath as it roars,

Giant:
"Who is your master?"

Paging Dram and Dirt.


Dirt to M20, Dram to N20, Andaros and I both benefit from +2 to all defenses due to Dirt's Aura
Grasping Tide against G1, 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (18) + 16 = 34 vs fort, 1d6 + 11 ⇒ (1) + 11 = 12, if he moves before the end of my next turn 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (16) + 16 = 32 vs ref, he falls prone

Drams sends out another stream of water at the golem, trying to hamper any movement it makes.

Rev

Spoiler:
Rev, I'm heading off for a day or two so may not get to post if my turn comes around. Also, with Christmas approaching, I may find it hard to get time to update. Just giving you a heads up. Cheers


All:
Cronin is away for the next week and I know many of you will be travelling and so on. I'll post on anyone's behalf as needed and try not to get any of you killed.

More water conjured from nowhere brings G1 to an unwilling halt as further shards slam into Nayce and Greeg. The massive goliath takes no notice whatever.

5 damage to Nayce and Greeg, but Greeg still has resist 14.

MAP

Golem notes:
A golem taking weapon damage automatically does 5 damage to any adjacent creature. Note that when golem is bloodied, this increases.
A golem taking non weapon typed damage makes an attack (close burst 5, enemies only, v Ref). On hit, target takes 2d6+10 of whatever damage type triggered the attack.
