The Trial of the Beast: Gatehouse labled

2,151 to 2,200 of 3,718 << first < prev | 39 | 40 | 41 | 42 | 43 | 44 | 45 | 46 | 47 | 48 | 49 | next > last >>

HP: 66/73 AC 16/12/12: F+9, R +4, W +3, Per:-2, Init: +5, Rage: 7/9

Gkirkhan roars as he brings the axe in a wide swinging arc trying to catch the ghost in the waist. Somehow, the apparition manages to twist out of the way.

Power Attack
Attack: 1d20 + 7 - 1 + 1 ⇒ (9) + 7 - 1 + 1 = 16
Damage: 1d6 + 7 ⇒ (3) + 7 = 10

hp 27/39; AC 15/11/14; Luck 8/8 rounds

Oooh. Just logged in to roll an aid another check for your attack. Too bad.
Having had -quite- enough of being hit with that axe, Vertielle takes a few steps back and uses the room to read off her scroll of protection from evil.

It isn't much, but I think Vertielle and I do 1hp each in splash damage.

DM Ninja/infinite

Yep you each do a point. 2 more points off the Lopper.

17 - 2 = 15

DM Ninja/infinite

And the Lopper takes his turn.

Victim: Eva=1,Gkirkhan=2, Rova=3, Vertielle=4, Wood=5, Zhiden=6

victim: 1d6 ⇒ 2

The Lopper seems to recognize the weapon Gkirkhan wields and goes for him!

touch: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15

Negative_energy: 1d6 ⇒ 6 plus bleed: 1d6 ⇒ 6


Male hp 19/36; AC 21/14/19 Level 5 Burglar

I seem to recall hearing some talk about a ranged touch attack working with weapon finesse, so I'm going with that.

Tired of trying to stab with something so ungainly as an arrow, and especially not caring much for Rova's 'encouragement', Zhiden stowed the arrow and grabbed one of the vials of holy water that Wood gave him earlier. He threw the vial on the ground in front of the monster, hoping the splash would get him.

Attack: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (13) + 7 = 20

Damage: 2d4 ⇒ (3, 2) = 5

hp 27/39; AC 15/11/14; Luck 8/8 rounds

That arrow works with Weapon Finesse, too, by the way.

Male hp 19/36; AC 21/14/19 Level 5 Burglar

I know, but my attack bonus is +7, the penalty I was told for the arrow was -6

Female Assimar (with Ulfen blood) Cleric(Theologian) 3 / Monk(Martial Artist) 2

ranged touch attacks always use dex,
melee touch attacks use strength, or Dex with Weapon finesse.

hp 27/39; AC 15/11/14; Luck 8/8 rounds


AC 21b - 11t - 20ff; HP: 44/44; PP: 2/2

Rova continues to beat down the phantom menace..

Shifting his stance a bit, Rova aims more for power than accuracy. [using Power Attack for -1 to hit/+3 damage (2-handed weapon)]

Attack: 1d20 + 7 - 1 + 2 ⇒ (14) + 7 - 1 + 2 = 22
Damage: 1d8 + 7 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 7 + 3 = 16

Half damage: 8

"I feel lik' I'm fannin' a cookfire here!"

DM Ninja/infinite

And both Zhiden and Rova connect. Pity the Lopper's still there. Weak, but there.

hp at 15 - 5 = 10 - 8 = 2

DM's call. I've reviewed the same things you did. It's not a spear, it's improvised. It's also inappropriately sized. The penalties stand. Please take and keep any further discussion on this or like ths to the discussion thread.

Wood tears himself from his spellbook to cast a wild acid spray that wildly misses the Lopper.
Will/acid spray touch/acid spray damage
1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 251d20 + 3 ⇒ (1) + 3 = 41d6 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4

DM Ninja/infinite

New Round:

The Lopper


Somebody kill this thing!

HP: 66/73 AC 16/12/12: F+9, R +4, W +3, Per:-2, Init: +5, Rage: 7/9

Blood runs in thick rivers down Gkirkhan's bare chest, most would have fainted or screamed in pain. Not Gkirkhan. The half-orc gave a quiet chuckle that quickly built into a barking laugh that echoed through out the prison.


The raging, apparently insane, fighter swings the Lopper's axe in a powerful, rage fueled swing that manages to connect in the side of the ghost's neck. After the apparition disappears, he drops the axe and stumbles over to a something that can support his weight as he tries to staunch the bleeding from his wound.

"Dem, dot hort."

Power Attack: 1d20 + 9 - 1 + 1 ⇒ (10) + 9 - 1 + 1 = 19
Damage: 1d6 + 9 ⇒ (4) + 9 = 13
Bleed: 1d6 ⇒ 3
And Fatigued for 8 rounds

...I just realized I've been miscalculating attacks and Damage this whole fight. *smack head against keyboard*

DM Ninja/infinite

And Gkirkhan's mighty swing dissipates the ghastly form of the long dead Lopper.

Wood smiles as another nasty creature is dispatched.

"Good shot Gkirkan. Are we ready to finish off the last one, or do we need to rest and replenish?"

Holding up his cursed spellbook.
"I still need to settle accounts with the one who used this."

hp 27/39; AC 15/11/14; Luck 8/8 rounds

I think we could all use a little healing push, but we should end this. Time for Vesorianna may be quite short.

Male hp 19/36; AC 21/14/19 Level 5 Burglar

"That might not be a bad idea, I've noticed you looking through it while we were fighting. I can't imagine how a book could be that interesting." He said it without malice, as an observation rather than an accusation. He handed the arrow back to Vertielle, adding "Next time it may be better to just shoot it, the weight is all wrong for stabbing."

He searched the room, wondering if he'd find anything interesting here.

1d20 + 9 ⇒ (18) + 9 = 27

DM Ninja/infinite

You find that there is a large collection of stuff at the bottom of the pit the Lopper rose from. along wiht what must be the Lopper's bones is a decaptated skull and items the Lopper seems to have looted and stored here including:

120 gp
a brokem MW heavy crossbow
a MW kongsword
a heavy mace
a carved stone
a ring of keys

hp 27/39; AC 15/11/14; Luck 8/8 rounds

Vertielle uses detect magic on the pile, and suggests that Wood use mage hand to retrieve most things.

AC 21b - 11t - 20ff; HP: 44/44; PP: 2/2

Ooo, a kongsword - for use against or for Kong to wield?

"Abou' time! Tha' thing was a major pain in the.. Well, it's dead agin. Now, stay tha' way!"

DM Ninja/infinite

[ooc]Because I changed the weapon you got from the church to a mace, I'm going to change this mace to the weapon you should have obtained from the church. It's now a morningstar.[/b]

Three items detect as magical:

The stone

The longsword

The morningstar (Which you realize is silvered when you retrieve it.)

hp 27/39; AC 15/11/14; Luck 8/8 rounds

Spellcraft Rolls:

Stone: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (4) + 7 = 11
Sword: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (2) + 7 = 9
Star: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (19) + 7 = 26

These markings are quite interesting, and look here, where the metal's been warped by the enchantment. See the haft of this morningstar? Where the leather darkened? That's because it's organic. That might suggest...

Wood detects magic too.

Spellcraft Rolls:
stone/lsword/mstar1d20 + 11 ⇒ (19) + 11 = 301d20 + 11 ⇒ (9) + 11 = 201d20 + 11 ⇒ (11) + 11 = 22

DM Ninja/infinite


Stone of Alarm

+1 longsword

+1 Silver morningstar

hp 27/39; AC 15/11/14; Luck 8/8 rounds

Okay, back out the passageway. I still think we can finish this with a little healing, but, I guess if you're all for returning...

DM Ninja/infinite

The group gathers up all the treasure found and works their way back to Ravengro and Kendra's place for rest, recuperation, healing, and a little bit of loot distribution.

DM Ninja/infinite

As you enter, Kendra comes out to greet you. "Oh, good. You're back. And safe."

She looks you over. "Mostly, I see."

You hear voices coming from the dining hall.

"I see you found them, Gkirkhan. Your mother will be relieved. She's -helping- in the kitchen. Why don't you go see her."

"The rest of you, please, tell me how it went."

HP: 66/73 AC 16/12/12: F+9, R +4, W +3, Per:-2, Init: +5, Rage: 7/9

"Oh, no."

Gkirkhan turns almost pale when it's mentioned that his mother is "helping" in the kitchen. Still, one can not call him a coward, since he goes into the kitchen anyway.

Female Assimar (with Ulfen blood) Cleric(Theologian) 3 / Monk(Martial Artist) 2

"What's wrong, Gkirkhan?"

hp 27/39; AC 15/11/14; Luck 8/8 rounds

I may go down to the tavern for dinner, yeah?

Male hp 19/36; AC 21/14/19 Level 5 Burglar

"What's to tell? We explored a haunted prison and got attacked by various sorts of horrors. She was almost strangled by a pair of hands," He said, pointing at Vertielle. "We also found a passage leading to the torture chamber, but we haven't explored it yet."

He let the comment about Gkirkhan's mother and her cooking slide, he figured that it would be explained soon enough, but he was starting to piece together that she might be known for her cooking, and not in a good way.

Wood had had Kendra's and Rova's cooking. Wood looks at Rova, "Rova, you are going in there aren't you? Wait, maybe it is a good time to copy some spells in the study with the door closed."

Wood looks for Kendra, "Would you like to study some magic?"

DM Ninja/infinite

Long post: list of loot.

Reviewing the items you've gathered from the bowels of the prison, you find you now have:

120g [from the Lopper]

1 MW handaxe [306g]
1 (uncursed) MW smith's hammer [51g]
6 MW suits of chainmail [1800g]
6 MW suits of studded leather armor [1050g]
4 MW longswords [1260g]
4 MW heavy maces [1248g]
2 MW heavy crossbows [700g]
120 crossbow bolts [12g]

the Piper's silver flute is now uncursed as well and worth 300 g.
Father Charlatan's collection of silver holy symbols is also uncursed and worth 300g.

1 stone of alarm [2700g]
1 +1 silver morningstar [2398g]
1 (uncursed) +1 handaxe [2306g]
1 +1 longsword [2315g]
10 +1 crossbow bolts [460g]
1 wand of hold person (11 cgs) [490g]
4 potions of cure moderate wounds [1200g] (if none were used; reduce by 300g/used)
1 rope of climbing [3000g]

Who wants what, what will be group items, and what will you sell?

Male hp 19/36; AC 21/14/19 Level 5 Burglar

If I read right, the rope of climbing can hold up to 3000 pounds and can climb, right? I say we keep that and the potions, for emergencies. I would say keep the wand too, but undead are immune to mind affecting powers. . .Aside from that, Rova and Gkirkhan may want some of the weapons, but I don't know.

hp 27/39; AC 15/11/14; Luck 8/8 rounds

Heck, you can use the morningstar. I can use the longsword and the wand. Stone of alarm, alright, we can use that. Rope of climbing is a definite keep. Maybe I'm just used to my group's low-magic campaign, but, I don't generally sell any magic items until someone has craft feats.

Okay, let's have Zhiden, Rova, Gkirkhan, and I take the potions, and I'll carry the rope. Be a dear and put that stone on the doorknob, I don't want any surprises in the night. Now, who had a crossbow? Wood? Well, you ought to, so why don't you keep those bolts. I can use a new sword, and I think Ziper could use this... maybe the inherent magic will even shrink it for him.
Vertielle addresses Zhiden, Do keep notes, thanks.
Oh, but this axe is already his size... Well, you and Gkirkhan both need an enchanted weapon. Work it out over dinner, yeah? Now, I wonder what the necromatic effect on these potions has been... where [I]did[/] I put my lab rats?

Wood already started carrying the rope a while ago. It is actually something I can use.

hp 27/39; AC 15/11/14; Luck 8/8 rounds

Okay, cool.

AC 21b - 11t - 20ff; HP: 44/44; PP: 2/2

Rova can certainly add some flavor to the cooking, and heads back to the kitchen to..assist.

Cook! 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (10) + 9 = 19

Either aiding another or taking the lead, dinner will be served (and maybe survived)!

"Yea', you kin sell off da magic weapons, not m' kinda stuff. Th' normal stuff, either ain't gonna fit, or I don need it. I'll jus' finish wid th' mace I'm borrowin'"

Rova is a bit worried - something is stirring inside him again, and his destructive 'abilities' have grown...

"Anyun know a collecter of the macabre? Seems we got some prime exibits."

As everyone enjoys dinner, Kendra asks "So, what are your plans for tomorrow? What do you have left to do there? How many of the -what did you call them- the 'big 5' are left?"

Female Assimar (with Ulfen blood) Cleric(Theologian) 3 / Monk(Martial Artist) 2

"Only one Left, and he's the worst one."

DM Ninja/infinite

"Well, don't you worry about it, little lady. My boy can handle it, for sure.

The -disturbingly- attractive orc woman reaches over and tugs on Gkirkhan's ear.

"You keep these ladies safe now, boy."

She looks Rova up and down, consideringly, and sighs. "Not bad. Kinda young, though. You stick with them and I'm sure Gkirky will get fed properly."

Wood speaks to Kendra, "I have copied the Splatterman's book. As much as it would pain me, to harm him I may have to tear out pieces of his book. But do not worry, if you need any of his spells, I have copied them to my own personal book. You may borrow it if you need to."

"Anyway, I think we will finish with the Big 5 tomorrow."

Wood bows to Gkirkan's mom. "Nice to meet you ma'am. Gkirkan is doing a great job. I see where he gets his better qualities."

Male hp 19/36; AC 21/14/19 Level 5 Burglar

"If need be, you can give me the book. I wouldn't have any problem with tearing it up." Zhiden shrugged, as if it was no big deal.

hp 27/39; AC 15/11/14; Luck 8/8 rounds

Vertielle is conspicuously unphased by an orcish presence despite being even half-elven.
Ha! Neither would Gkirkhan, I think.
She yawns.
I'll be turning in for the night, and finishing out my journal entries. Thank you for dinner, as always Kendra. I do so hope this business is resolved quickly so we can spend more time being intellectual and stuff.
She addresses Gkirkhan, Wake me if anything interesting happens around here.

Wood thinks for a while.
"Great idea Zhiden, here is the spellbook. You can rip out one page when we see him. If it works, try two more."
Will Save to hand it over 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (7) + 6 = 13

After a short moment of handling his spellbook, Wood hands the book to Zhiden.
When time permits, Wood scribes Mon Sum II in a scroll.

HP: 66/73 AC 16/12/12: F+9, R +4, W +3, Per:-2, Init: +5, Rage: 7/9

"Yez ma'am."

Gkirkhan turns a brilliant shade of red, and keeps nervously looking over at Vertielle as the night progresses. His mother's comment about Rova made the half-orc shrink down in his chair with a simple "oh gods."

When Vertielle turns in for the night, Gkirkhan whispers back, "Hyu might vanna tell me how interestink. My mudder being around iz almost a guarantee dot somethink interestink iz goink to happen."

Female Assimar (with Ulfen blood) Cleric(Theologian) 3 / Monk(Martial Artist) 2

she thinks to herself
"what is she really doing here?
Well at least she's not looking for potential brides, I think....
At least he still has family members left."

AC 21b - 11t - 20ff; HP: 44/44; PP: 2/2

"Um sur' ya wen' through tha' spellbook, so ya should 'ave a good idea abou' wha' spells dis guy can toss. Waz a good defense agin his stuff? An' can ya cast it on alla us? Dis guy is likely a ghostie, not onea dem big dead mage thingies..Lick or sumthin'. Iffn th' fight goes like th' lopper one did, we need sum defense while me, Hyam, an' Zhiden saw on it like a cord o' firewood."
