Akemi had four items on her, her mask, sword, vestements and neck item. I thought it'd be nice for the mask to be kept, not sure what your stance is on the other three, I figured they'd be either evaporated with her, kept to be sold or some such, or maybe offered to the temple of Ioun when they get out of here. Up to you of course, but I think only Rothiel could actually use the mask.
The blade feels volatile to her. Such a strange sense, to hold a blade sentient, one filled with loathing and dedication. She looks back towards the group as she lowers the blade, letting the edge touch the stonework floor.
In a slow motion, she does the unexpected. Akemi removes her mask finally. The smooth porcelain slips off her face. The woman beneath may never have been beautiful, her nose was a bit large, her features a bit flat. A deformative injury on her cheek seems to be the root cause, as if she had been struck hard there by some blade, and the bones hadn't reset properly.
Struggling with the proper language, she speaks, her words slurring "It...needs me. The wraith will return." Her eyes raise up, "Unless someone takes its place. It...needs a proper soul. I am the stranger here, This is not my world, I have no life beyond this so.. I will accept this burden. She adds with a edge of hope in her voice. "Perhaps after the lich is slain, I will be freed."
She wipes a tear from her eye, "Be strong, I will always aid this quest forever more. You have my oath." She clenches her fist around the blade's handle. "Fight. End its terror...." She turns away from the party, her back to them as even now in this last moment, she finds she has not the strength to look them in the eye.
A soft glow accompanies her, the light of Ioun. It surrounds her and the dark blade and Akemi is no more.
A porcelain mask clatters to the floor.
For this fight, Temple of Light is great because it ensures radiant exploitation! Also, Akemi has used her AP and is not bloodied currently.
Akemi hefts her greatsword again, gives a bare nod of respect to Anri's commitment.
Healing Word on Anri.
for 1 Surge + 4d6 ⇒ (5, 3, 5, 3) = 16
She shifts through her team with the strength of angels, delivering a weltering blow towards the archwraith.
1d20 + 23 ⇒ (8) + 23 = 31
for 2d12 + 15 + 1d6 ⇒ (4, 10) + 15 + (5) = 34 radiant damage.
Akemi's holy symbol flares to life, sending a soothing wave of health to the party. Moghadam is not quite as comforted by the blast of radiance.
Mantle of Glory
for 2d10 + 15 + 1d6 ⇒ (8, 2) + 15 + (4) = 29 radiant damage
The entire party may spend a surge. Akemi does so.
83/119 HP 2 surges left.
Not bloodied, but not happy.
2d10 ⇒ (6, 2) = 8 from aura
NOW bloodied and not happy, and my options are limited, dang I'd like a flank setup...
Bond of Pursuit
for 1d12 + 8 + 1d6 ⇒ (3) + 8 + (4) = 15 radiant damage, so 25 total after vuln.
Akemi hews into the wraith even as its attack ravage her.
save vs ongoing 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (19) + 1 = 20
Good thing you did it in that order, otherwise none of us near Mog could see you to get the surge!
Akemi goes to college for her MBA
and graduates Summa Cum Ouch!
45 damage + 3d8 ⇒ (1, 6, 5) = 12 = 57 damage to Moghadam.
Akemi breaks her serene focus for a fierce attack. Moments later, she seems puzzled but not upset.
Nice move, Rothiel
Immediate action: Desperate Resolve - Insubstantial UEOMNT
Akemi reels underneath the assault, her act of desperation possibly the only thing saving her. Would've taken about 80 damage or so
Aura: 2d10 ⇒ (2, 5) = 7 Halved
In retaliation her blade glows a blinding light as she leaps forward, slamming it into the ground about Moghadam. Radiant energy courses up from the ground, damaging the archwraith.
Abjure the Undead adding Sacred Mask's bonus.
1d20 + 16 ⇒ (8) + 16 = 24 vs Will
I do not know why Akemi does not have Versatile Expertise, but I'll add my +4 for my Heroic Effort
for 6d10 + 5 + 1d6 ⇒ (9, 3, 8, 6, 4, 6) + 5 + (4) = 45 radiant damage. If Hit: Target is immobilized UEOMNT. Miss: Half damage
She then lets a mere moment go by, before ripping her blade back up into the air, the collected power turns into a pillar of light, adhering to Moghadam.
Temple of Light
A zone is created around Moghadam that follows him, within it whenever you hit a creature that is within the zone, that attack deals 1d6 extra radiant damage. I do not believe this is solely for Akemi, but I am not sure.
save vs ongoing 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (13) + 1 = 14
While the Avenger is wounded from the initial assault, she quietly enjoys giving in kind.
Akemi is Lyan's shadow, mirroring his acrobatic landing, though she does it a moment later after any chance of stealth was already done for.
Fall damage from 4 squares up:2d10 ⇒ (2, 9) = 11
With nimbleness, she lands on her feet, one hand before her steadying against the ground. Silently relishing this moment, she dedicates herself to the wraith's destruction, complete with finger pointing, and thumbs down.
Minor: Oath of Enmity on Mog.
Seeing the others precarious issues though, she doesn't foolishly rush in, though her zealotry silently rages. She takes a moment to regain her serene disposition.
Passive Perception of 28 for any more stinking pits. Doubt I can spot them in transit and stop myself?
Move: H7 underneath Rahz.
Minor: Deadly Calm - UEOE, if both of my Enmity rolls hit, he'll take 8 extra damage.
Unless anyone has some buffs to throw out there, let's get this party started!
Those known to Akemi now can sense an eagerness to quell the foe below. She gathers up the tied rope,with Anri's permission of course. ensures the grapnel is secure on the trap door's edge.... If he isn't looking this way lowers the rope as quietly as able, then will start down it.
Can't fail Athletics, as climbing a rope is DC10.
Judging by the climbing rules, you climb as part of a move action, with the climb taking twice as many squares. 8 square drop means I will need to 'run' while descending, thus granting CA to Moggie.
Let me know if this isn't right.
