"Well I suppose it is a necropolis...." Tybalt sighs softly. "I'm not sure how many undying taunts I've left in me - make no bones about it."


Male Human Cleric/5 {HP:42/42, AC 16 (11 without armor)}

knowledge (religion): 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (17) + 9 = 26

Res swings away from the wight's blow before it can connect. "Andrezj is right. Those wights are stronger in here, let's try to draw them out into the hallway."

Anuqa initiative: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (10) + 1 = 11
Wights initiative: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (8) + 1 = 9

Acorn - I will check with taig to see if he is still around to run Anuqa. For now, hold off and I can run him until I know for sure. Thank you again for your help!

The dotted line marks a raised dais upon which the altar stands.

Moving into the room, you can see that there are two doors - one in each of the far corners. There are no other doors apart from the one through which you entered.

Round 1

Andrzej nods to the idea of retreat and casts a spell upon himself to protect his body from the creature's touch much more. Then he steps up to join the fight next to Res.

casts shield, AC23 now.

"Res, it will struggle to hit me now, withdraw and I shall keep you from harm for now."

Round 1

Andrzej nods to the idea of retreat and casts a spell upon himself to protect his body from the creature's touch much more. Then he steps up to join the fight next to Res.

casts shield, AC23/fft19/tch18 (if shield works as a magical force (not sure)) now.

"Res, it will struggle to hit me now, withdraw and I shall keep you from harm for now."


Male Human Philosopher 6

In accordance with the plan Angalia and Eliva fall back into the hallway.


Male Human Sorcerer 5 {AC 13 (17 with mage armor), Perception +9, HP 27/27}

Three icy missiles leave Anuqa's hands to strike one of the the foul creatures (wight #1).

magic missile: 3d4 + 3 ⇒ (4, 3, 2) + 3 = 12


28/29HP , AC17

Whispering sotto voce, Tybalt hisses; "Surely luring them to a narrow frontage means we cannot use our numbers, whilst they can use their area spells." He frets slightly thinking of a lightning bolt in the confines of the corridor.

However he's used to the uncertainty and he doesn't let it affect his spirit too severely as he jibes at the creatures. "You'd best leave us alone, or else you won't be all wight."

Std: Inspire Courage +1 to hit & damage
Move: Draw shield


Anuqa's magic missile sears one of the wights, while Angalia pulls back into the corridor.

The first wight flails its putrid fist at Andrzej.

1d20 + 5 ⇒ (14) + 5 = 19

The second lunges again at Leandro.

1d20 + 5 ⇒ (14) + 5 = 19

"Let's see they follow us out of this temple to negate this profane disadvantage, calls out Res. He moves away from the white to the doorway. There he stops and shows Gorum's holy symbol. Positive energy bursts forth and hits each white.

Male Human Magus 5 AC21/T16/F15, Hits 40/40, Init +6(+8), F+7, R+8, W+5; Perception +0, Arcane Pool 9/9

"Yes, I shall cover the way. Step back into the tunnel."


Male Human Magus 5 AC21/T16/F15, Hits 40/40, Init +6(+8), F+7, R+8, W+5; Perception +0, Arcane Pool 9/9

Andrzej will fight defensively and move back into the tunnel entrance last of all. AC goes up by two to 25. Provokes an AoO.

fighting defensively: 1d20 + 8 - 4 ⇒ (19) + 8 - 4 = 23, damage: 1d6 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9, Possible crit: 1d20 + 8 - 4 ⇒ (7) + 8 - 4 = 11, damage: 1d6 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

The blade slashes back and forth across the wight's face.

Will save 2: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (6) + 6 = 12

Attack of Opportunity: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (7) + 5 = 12

The wights cry out at Res's holy invocation. One swings at him as he retreats but fails to strike him.

Andrzej's blade slashes one solidly in the face, the vistani's blade drips with rotting ichor.

The magus takes a moment to flick the gore from his blade and into the stone floor then he continues his fighting retreat.


Male Human Philosopher 6

Elvia will retreat and ready an attack for if she sees a Wight


28/29HP , AC17

"We're giving up our advantage in numbers and archery. But it might be that these are the guys that're boned, certainly they're looking a bit rusty." Tybalts a bit apprehensive about the plan, but used to taking orders. Thus he backs up towards the narrow passage and readies himself for any reinforcements.

Move: to F2
Free: Continue with Inspire Courage (Round 2): +1 to hit & damage.


Male Human (Taldan) Paladin 5: Init +0, Perception +0; F+10, R+5, W+8; HP 29/50 (55) {LoH 6/6; CON: -1, LVL = -1}

"This accursed place bolsters their unholy spirits," Leandro agrees, moving towards the door, "Let us move to friendlier terrain in hopes they follow."

Withdraw action to K4, glaive has reach to threaten J4-L5 rectangle with AoO if any wights move this way or try to attack him.


Angalia retreats up the corridor, as does Anuqa, but not without unleashing magic missiles at the wights.

1: 2d4 + 2 ⇒ (1, 3) + 2 = 6
2: 1d4 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4

The first wight crumples to the ground when struck, but the second launches another attack at Leandro.

Leandro can make an AoO. Assuming it does not fell the wight, it attacks:

1d20 + 6 ⇒ (13) + 6 = 19
1d4 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 = 5 plus energy drain

Male Human (Taldan) Paladin 5: Init +0, Perception +0; F+10, R+5, W+8; HP 29/50 (55) {LoH 6/6; CON: -1, LVL = -1}

Leandro AoO first.
Glaive, normal, neg lvl: 1d20 + 9 - 1 ⇒ (18) + 9 - 1 = 26
Glaive dmg if hits: 1d10 + 4 ⇒ (7) + 4 = 11

Waiting to see if that drops the wight before turn action.


The attack savagely wounds the remaining wight, but does not fell it. The dark creature does seem to be barely standing.


Male Human (Taldan) Paladin 5: Init +0, Perception +0; F+10, R+5, W+8; HP 29/50 (55) {LoH 6/6; CON: -1, LVL = -1}

Cestus, PA/FF, smite, 2 neg lvl: 1d20 + 8 - 2 + 4 ⇒ (9) + 8 - 2 + 4 = 19
Cestus dmg if hits, with PA & 3 pally levels: 1d4 + 2 + 2 + 3 ⇒ (4) + 2 + 2 + 3 = 11

Feeling his very life drain away as the vile undead steps inside his weapon's reach, Leandro lashes out desperately with his armed and armored fist, calling upon his goddess for aid.


With a crunch of bone and sinew, what remains of the wight collapses on the floor.

Out of combat.


28/29HP , AC17

Tybalt pokes his head back into the room, "Are you alright? Leandro, Eliva, Andrzej?" His voice is filled with concern as he looks around the room, with a degree of trepidation. "Maybe we should rest up for a minute, before we move further on. For certainly this is a necropolis of some danger, if such powerful beings could be summoned from the grave."

He then moves a bit forwards to examine both the right & left passages to see which has been more recently used.

Perception: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (16) + 10 = 26
Survival (Tracking): 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (20) + 12 = 32


Male Human Magus 5 AC21/T16/F15, Hits 40/40, Init +6(+8), F+7, R+8, W+5; Perception +0, Arcane Pool 9/9

"I'm fine."

Andrzej begins to move off then decides to keep nearby in case another wight turns up while anyone is healed.


Male Human (Taldan) Paladin 5: Init +0, Perception +0; F+10, R+5, W+8; HP 29/50 (55) {LoH 6/6; CON: -1, LVL = -1}

"I'm... well enough," Leandro responds, "Don't get too far ahead, Sir Tybalt. This accursed place is obviously dangerous." With a withering look at the putrid corpses of the wights, he moves to accompany Tybalt forward, unwilling to allow anyone to wander off alone.


Male Human Cleric/5 {HP:42/42, AC 16 (11 without armor)}

Concerned about the unnatural effects that wight's attack may have had on Leandro, Res asks, "Sir Leandro, are you sure you can continue. While I cannot remove the full effects the wight may have had on you, I do have a scroll that may help your vigor"

After Leandro answers, Res examines the chapel. perception: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7


Male Human Magus 5 AC21/T16/F15, Hits 40/40, Init +6(+8), F+7, R+8, W+5; Perception +0, Arcane Pool 9/9

Andrzej foes with Res, making sure he is not alone in the unholy place. He pays particular attention to the altar, trying to understand more of the necromancer's home and its occupants.

Perception: 1d20 ⇒ 15

Know(religion): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (14) + 7 = 21


Discerning footprints in this chamber is difficult, as the wandering of the wights (not to mention your own recent scuffle) have left little dust on the worn stone floor, apart from the corners and under some of the ruined pews. Tybalt, however, has particularly keen eyes and detects that the eastern door is used far more frequently than the western one, but both are used occasionally. Both doors appear to be locked.

Andrzej:
The symbology is heavy with images relating to death, interment, and undeath. There are no symbols of any known religions or deities. This is, in effect, a chapel to Death itself. As is so often the case in Ravenloft, this chapel seems to have sprung into being as an ancient site - old at birth, and built by no one but the Powers themselves to suit whatever occupants they wanted to lure here. A twisted necromancer could readily make himself at home in such a place.


Male Human Magus 5 AC21/T16/F15, Hits 40/40, Init +6(+8), F+7, R+8, W+5; Perception +0, Arcane Pool 9/9

"I do not recognise one god or any of their symbols. More than that I surmise it is likely to be made by the Land to attract those steeped in death and undeath. Looks like the necromancer was born to live in this forsaken place." Andrzej rubs down the toecaps of his black boots with his fingers, removing some of the chapel dirt and dust.


Male Human (Taldan) Paladin 5: Init +0, Perception +0; F+10, R+5, W+8; HP 29/50 (55) {LoH 6/6; CON: -1, LVL = -1}

"Mayhap we should save your healing magic against worse harm in the future, Sir Res," Leandro replies uneasily, "And what is it you mean by 'made by the Land', good swordsman?"


Male Human Magus 5 AC21/T16/F15, Hits 40/40, Init +6(+8), F+7, R+8, W+5; Perception +0, Arcane Pool 9/9

"The Vistani have a saying from years of travelling the Land of Mists. "The Land is dark and filled with Power, it watches and it waits for evil to come forth.""


28/29HP , AC17

Tybalt shivers at Andrezj's proclamation, for the Vistani had always been a strange and superstitious folk - more in touch with the land and yet disparate seers. "Now then, that sounds ominous.... much like these foot prints to the eastern door."

He moves over and gets his lock picks out to try and open it.

Disable Device: 1d20 + 13 ⇒ (17) + 13 = 30


Male Human Magus 5 AC21/T16/F15, Hits 40/40, Init +6(+8), F+7, R+8, W+5; Perception +0, Arcane Pool 9/9

There is a swish of the scimitar back and forth as the magus limbers up a bit.
