The Tomb of Horrors Part 1 (4e) - Group 1

Game Master Rev Rosey

The monster that is Tomb of Horrors.
Two groups are going through this.
For some reason I set up a second game thread for Group 2, but not for Group 1.


1,201 to 1,250 of 3,395 << first < prev | 20 | 21 | 22 | 23 | 24 | 25 | 26 | 27 | 28 | 29 | 30 | next > last >>

Radiant wings unfurl and Akemi glides gracefully over the hazard.

Yes, it was. 1AP each.

MAP

Order:
Lyan - gone
Samson - gone
Darwyn - gone
Norrin - gone
Akemi - gone
Levana


Paging Levana.


Female Elf Seeker, Crimson Hunter / 12

I think Levana will use her Felyleaf Sandals to get across the gap. I'm not in a place that I can find the details of how they work exactly. She will however use surges to get back to full HP prior to the leap. Holding her breath of course.


Feyleaf Sandals
When you fall, instead teleport safely to the nearest horizontal surface within 5 squares that can support your weight, take no falling damage, and land on your feet.

I'll allow that as a double move to get you far enough in to be within 5 of the corridor. Lyan or Akemi will quite happily step aside for you.

Despite her care, Levana inhales some of the fungus spores. Unconscious, the is teleported to the far corridor and slumps.

v Fort (attack from fungus - you have to move through it in order to trigger a fall onto the spikes).
1d20+11=26. Hits. 4d8=22
22 poison damage to Levana.

Make a save v unconsciousness please and don't forget to upgrade yourself to level 13 :)

MAP

Order:
Lyan
Samson
Darwyn
Norrin
Akemi
Levana - unconscious?


M Hobgoblin Battlemind/Quicksilver Demon 17 (Foe Killer)

"Akemi, help Levana get clear. I'm going to try to get some more breathing room for the others."

Assuming they comply

Lyan concentrates on his flail, takes and holds a breath, and swings. His weapon seems to ripple and flow as it reaches out to the nearest patch of fungus.

Flowing Weapon from place vs square Q5 (reach is +1 with the power).

1d20 + 16 ⇒ (6) + 16 = 221d10 + 10 ⇒ (5) + 10 = 15


Leaning calmly as far as he can reach and infusing his flail with a little extra something, Lyan clears another hole in the fungal covering.

MAP

Samson
Darwyn
Norrin
Akemi
Levana - unconscious?
Lyan


Human

Samson - are you back in the loop yet?

Levana - please make a save v unconsciousness.


M Hobgoblin Battlemind/Quicksilver Demon 17 (Foe Killer)

Rev:

Spoiler:
If a reach melee attack can clear this stuff safely, maybe we can skip ahead? That was an at-will. Just a thought.


@Lyan

Spoiler:
Sometimes I am very dumb. Yes, you can.

Lyan deals systematically with the remaining fungus as Levana recovers and the group make their way down the corridor. At their approach, the door shimmers and becomes a portal, returning them to the chamber containing the three portals.

Norrin clutches a mithril key and Private Piton, while for Akemi, all this is new.

MAP

Where next?


M Hobgoblin Battlemind/Quicksilver Demon 17 (Foe Killer)

One surge in a brief rest, please!


M Hobgoblin Battlemind/Quicksilver Demon 17 (Foe Killer)

"Purple."


You got it. Would just like to make sure the whole team are around. Samson was still upgrading himself and Darwyn hasn't been around for a couple of days.


Male Orcish-Nerathi Ranger 17 / Darkstrider

"Woah," says Mr Axebeard as he suddenly finds himself back in a familiar place.


Sorry, college is hectic and I keep not getting the updates to this thread. Is darwyn true? Can I magic missile my way through?


Yup. So you did :D Pat pointed out that there was no actual need to roll for any of it, so I've finally come to my senses and done a judicious handwave.

Don't know what you can do about the update thing. Try posting as Vagrant Poet and then immediately editing it to Darwyn to dot yourself up. Sometimes the boards are very flakey about what they show.


Short rest and then on through the purple portal in your noble quest to rescue all of Norrin's pitons?


M Hobgoblin Battlemind/Quicksilver Demon 17 (Foe Killer)

Yep


'Stay strong valiant pitons! That said, I'll go through the portal last!'


Male Orcish-Nerathi Ranger 17 / Darkstrider

Norrin seems unconcerned,

"They'd better stay strong, otherwise I'm getting a refund from the Adventurer's Shoppe when we get back to town."

A short rest then next through the portal after Lyan.


Stepping through the portal, the group are greeted by the familiar sight of more vats. On the plus side, there is no fungus. On the minus side, the chill air drives into your bones and the two bodak guards lurking near the far vat turn baleful eyes and large battleaxes in your direction. The vat itself greets your arrival with a tentative ripple of green mist.

The hobgoblin moves cautiously at first, then becomes a silvery blur as he speeds past the bodaks, too quickly for them to react to his attacks.

Move to G10. Rebounding Dance aug2 to shift 10, attacking both on the way, ending at G14. Attack vs B1, B2 AC
1d20 + 16 ⇒ (10) + 16 = 262d10 + 10 ⇒ (4, 8) + 10 = 221d20 + 16 ⇒ (16) + 16 = 322d10 + 10 ⇒ (3, 7) + 10 = 20

Oh, and on a hit, target has -2 to defenses TEOMNT.
HP 106, Surge 7, PP 7, AP 1.


The baleful gaze of the bodaks is not enough to thwart the second of Lyan's attacks. They turn their attention to him, as B1 advances,greataxe swinging.

Greataxe (AC). On hit target is dazed and weakened (se both)
1d20+21=32 v Lyan. Hits. 1d12+6=15 necro plus 1d8=5 untyped
5 untyped damage to Lyan.

Although the worst of the attack glances off the hobgoblin, he can't so easily avoid the death stare of B2. Taking advantage of Lyan's weakness, the bodak sucks life from his body with frightening ease the the battlemind slips to the ground, unconscious.

Death Stare (Fort). On hit, a weakened target drops to 0hp.
1d20+20=33
Lyan drops to 0hp, is prone and dying.

I'll give Samson through tomorrow to show up, but Darwyn, if you get on line first, post at will.

Hobgoblin Resilience -- immediate reaction after the first hit to end an effect a save can end, with +4 from focused mind for a daze effect.
1d20 + 4 ⇒ (15) + 4 = 19

Lyan shrugs off the axe attack and glares back at the second bodak.

B2 up again, I believe :-)

Paragon level heroes - impossible to kill.

Lyan stares back and shrugs aside the mental attack as B2 arrives behind him and smacks him around the head with a greataxe.

Greataxe (AC). On hit target is dazed and weakened.
1d20+22=39. Hits. 1d12+6=11 non-necro plus 1d8=3

Direct the Strike. Ally within 5 of you makes a basic attack on an enemy within 10 you can see and hear.

Miss, I'm afraid.

Darwyn or Levana post at will.


I had put up a post. It seems its been eaten. I have huge connectivity issues at the moment. Could you use an attack spell for me, I'll try to get my s#$& sirted out properly. Thanks!


Ick. Hope you get it all sorted soon, Darwyn.

Darwyn eases himself down the room in a vain attempt to free himself from the malign influence of the bodaks. Unable to do so, his attempt to conjure befuddling horror also fails.

Illusory Ambush (Will) on B2.
1d20 + 11 ⇒ (14) + 11 = 25. Miss.

Misread Levana's init roll. Norrin is up.


Male Orcish-Nerathi Ranger 17 / Darkstrider

Due to recent developments in the discussion thread, I would like to ask your permission to reconfigure Norrin as a battle cleric. I feel that between Akemi and Levana there is enough strike capability in the party for Norrin to try a different vocation.


Go for it. Norrin's retrieval of his pitons has obviously spurred him to change paths. "While I stand, none shall fall without salvation."

In practical terms, I'll run Samson to the end of this battle. If you can keep playing Norrin as is until that point, you can just replace him when you finish slaughtering bodaks. Sound OK?

Deal.

Norrin is inspired by Lyan's athleticism and rushes around the battlefield to deliver some much needed arrows. (Minor) Target B2 for Hunter's Quarry.

(Move) 6 squares to L17
(Standard) Attacks on the Run
Move to M14
Takes 5 necrotic damage from B2.
@B2 1d20 + 17 - 2 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 17 - 2 + 2 = 21 vs. AC; 3d10 + 10 ⇒ (6, 3, 7) + 10 = 26 damage. Miss: 13 damage.
@B2 1d20 + 17 - 2 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 17 - 2 + 2 = 29 vs. AC; 3d10 + 10 + 2d6 ⇒ (6, 3, 8) + 10 + (1, 6) = 34 damage. Miss: 13 damage as well (unless HQ applies on a miss).

AC 27; Fortitude 28, Reflex 28, Will 24
84/95 HP; 4/7 Surges:
Surge Value +23 HP
Initiative +13; Speed 6
Passive Perception 26, Passive Insight 18; Low-light vision
AP: 1
Conditions: none
Dailies: Sure Shot, Attacks on the Run
Encounters:


Norrin darts across the room. Neither arrow goes deep, but they both make small flesh wounds in the B2.

"Life will triumph, horrors." Akemi states simply before seeming to explode with holy light.


M Hobgoblin Battlemind/Quicksilver Demon 17 (Foe Killer)

Decline, thanks. At 98hp, and kind of worried about surges with the insta-zero attacks. Posting from Chez Rev!
