Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

"Smell? I cannae smell a thing."

OK, it will take a couple of days before the Lady Almah turns up.

And it is indeed full moon tonight. Is it just Calain that you are telling and taking with you, Silena?

Sonya, the temple to Sarenrae feels... uncomfortable. Not the usual warmth you associate with the Dawnflower's shrines. You reckon it needs reconsecration.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Things begin to settle down. A message is sent to the Lady Almah to the effect that Kelmarane is taken. Any surviving gnolls have made good their escape, leaving bodies behind. The other denizens of the Battle Market are, for the main, remaining: most were here for profit, and reason that your money is probably even better than that of Kardswann and his gnolls. Umdrella's quite delighted, of course.

What have you done with Kardswann? And will you let Umdrella anywhere near him?

A ten-foot-wide, two-foot-tall well rises from the centre of this circular room. Inky water fills the well nearly to its rim, obscuring its depths. A stone statue of a rearing snake rises from the center of the well. Along the length of the serpent's body are carved dozens of arms crossed over the creature's belly — each arm grips a long curved blade. The statue's serpentine head rises ten feet above the surface of the water, gazing down coolly to the northeast with amethyst eyes.

Clinging to the statue is a wet and frightened looking man.

One of the weird-looking 'mongrel men' pokes his nose out of the door.

"Who ya? Waddya want?"

Blending her movements seamlessly with Lothar's (have they been practising?), Rhasadilara spins to the right neatly decapitating the worg as she does so.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Aha! Ashe, you find a secret door in the south-east corner!

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

I do hope you'll be able to stay around, Lucia. As the older hands will know I too had a long battle with unemployment - and now I have that dream job, it gets in the way of posting as regularly as I'd like!

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Oh dear, that's a shame. Good luck finding a new position.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

So am I! Where were we...? Ah, yes, outside the Chymic Works getting some fresh air.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Oh, dear, this is getting rather messy... the heads themselves bleed as they are hit, whilst the scaly 'necks' excude a nasty grey-green ooze when they are severed.

It will take a while, but the pair of you can dispatch them all...

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Grr, was just about to get cinematic when one of the TAs came in for some technical help! Now to wrestle my mind back to this... :)

Suddenly, Lothar launches himself towards the worg, leaping with knee outstretched. The impact is solid, he can feel - and the rest of you hear - the poor beast's ribcage cracking under the onslaught. Rhasadilara is close on the ninja's heels, a sudden burst of speed accelerating her forwards to make her attack... Is the attack at the top of the page the one you are making now, Rhasa?

Meanwhile, Barnabus is spellcasting.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Me to emerge from a rather busy week, I think :)

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Here is your new map.

At a best guess, Ebon Wings and Ashe, these were once living tigers whose heads were taken and mounted as trophies... and then animated! No bloodstone in here, though, at least not obviously. Does anyone wish to search?

As Ashe moves forwards, they snap at him... and each head appears to be mounted on an extensible serpentine neck. How far down do you want to go?

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Up to you!

Are you sending word that Kelmarane is in your hands or going back to the monastery yourselves to report your success?

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The worg looks unimpressed. However the wolves have all decided that it's time to leave...

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The door opens easily.

Imagine a T-shaped hall, you have entered on the top-side of the crossbar at one end. At the far end of the crossbar there's an opening to another room. The long shaft of the T has a constriction part-way down, where you can see another slight gap in the walls, then it extends for about 10 feet to a blank wall. (It's a bit difficult to explain, I'll post a map on Saturday.)

Now here's the odd thing. Both walls of this twenty-foot-long corridor are decorated with row upon row of tiger heads. Each head appears to be that of an actual, once-living tiger. The heads are remarkably well preserved — their gaping mouths and glaring eyes even appear to be moist.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

There is magic, but no evil presences, beyond the door. Magic to the left, a small concentrated node, and ahead - quite a bit, diffuse.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Rhasadilara, you may attack if you wish. We're not really in combat right now since a conversation has broken out.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Hit points: either roll or one-half of the appropriate die, but you must decide before rolling!

Hijiro: what do you want to do? If you have not used a skill/feat/whatever, then swap it out for something else, no worries.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

You know, it probably is time to level up... :)

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Sorry, the wolf Lothar clobbered was the one which ran off.

"Live how you like in your territory, I shall do the same in mine!" said the worg, showing rather a lot of teeth.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Silena, you are holding a +1 lawful outsider bane greataxe. Ugruk had a potion of cure moderate wounds, a potion of expeditious retreat, a masterwork breastplate, a masterwork flindbar, 5 daggers, and a ring of feather falling.

Barezata - you remember mention of an 'interdict key' that the Lady Almah has in her possession, that ought to open the seal on the church crypt door.

Quite a lot of people (including all gnolls) have cleared out of the Battle Market, the only ones still here appear to wish to conduct honest trade.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

I am accustomed to teaching and speaking in church... but in a university it seems to be regarded somewhat differently.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

This dungeon is a real pain to map, but here you are: current location

E3 is the alcove with the switch, E7 is the room with the 3 chests.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Yelping, the wolf runs off. The worg looks round at Barnabus.

"Your kind did not seem to wish agreement so I went my own way. You have your territory, keep to it!"

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The people in the Battle Market initially applauded and whistled at the show, but fall quiet and begin to drift away as Sonya starts shouting something about her deity. Several of the traders start packing up their stuff. The bugbears leave immediately. Any gnolls there leave even more quickly.

Kardswann lies quietly.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Go ahead, Sonya. If you've not used the spell or feat, we can forget that you ever had them.

And you lot seem to have been busy :)

Friday I delivered my first lecture at the university. They make a big deal of it. I was OK until people started coming by my office Thursday afternoon to wish me luck... but it went well and the students applauded at the end.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The leopard leaps from the balcony in spectactular demonstration of the rule that cats always land on their feet, said feet pounding into Kardswann and knocking him flat. Hijiro stands back and watches, as does Sonya.

Barezata lets fly with a couple more arrows, which hit Kardswann. He groans and smiles at the same time.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

You may redistribute items as necessary...

I shall see about getting Edmund involved, probably at the weekend.

(I have to deliver a lecture to new students on how to e-learn effectively on Friday... so busy preparing for that right now!)

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Silena clatters her way up to the balcony (probably another factor in putting Barezata off her aim!). All she finds is a dead gnoll and Barezata at the edge of the balcony firing down on those below. She should have no difficulty in nosing her clothes and gear over the great axe like some naughty kitten burying her misdemenours!

Hijiro dances back from Kardswann, who clenches his fists and says something quite uncomplimentary about his parentage... but then a strange look of confusion clouds Kardswann's expression. His entire body begins shaking, as if he were struggling to control his actions. He furrows his brow and speaks through clenched teeth: "You... must... destroy... Xulthos. Below the... below the ruined church. Cannot hold on. Bind me or cut me... within an inch of death... His will is so much stronger than mine... Do it! Do it now!"

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Lothar charges into the fray engaging the first wolf which evades his unarmed strike almost without breaking stride.

It turns snapping at him: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (11) + 2 = 13, dmg 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 1 = 6

The other one, a couple of steps behind, swings round in an attempt to flank... and its path brings it neatly onto Rhasadilara's blade! It yelps, lurching, clearly badly wounded.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Ground Level

Hijiro sneaks up and prods Kardswann rather ineffectually, but enough to hurt and even further outrage him. His language is quite unrepeatable! He spins round wondering where the (insert expletive of choice) the attack came from...

Somewhere else in the building a large leopard rather clumsily carries a great axe upstairs. She's faced with a choice: be stealthy or carry the thing - it keeps clunking on the floor or tangling up her front paws and generally making it very difficult to be as stealthy as she would like.

On the Balcony

Barezata looks down on an enraged Kardswann, getting a fine view of him being 'pricked' in the rear by an invisible Hijiro, causing him to spin round cursing a blue streak...

Now visible, Hijiro can either stand his ground or flee. What will it be?

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

You find that you have three potions of cure serious wounds and three potions of lesser restoration.

Liberty's Edge

Oh, go on then! The left chest says, 'By gentle caress shall truth be known.' The right chest says, 'Breathe deep your salvation.' The middle chest says, 'Life within but Death without.'

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Barnabus lets fly... and hits (was that a wolf or the worg?).

Rhasadilara's shot misses.

Heads turn, teeth are bared, noses wrinkle. The worg mutters something and 2 wolves turn and head in the direction from which the missiles came...

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Indeed not, 'Kitty' - especially as once you get around the corner, everything swims dizzily for a moment and the corridor shrinks... or is that you returning to your normal size?

You still have the great axe, although it's not exactly easy to wield in leopard form.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Kardswann is doing no more than shouting... act away!

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

I doubt it... don't care for them myself :)

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

'Kitty' Silena running off with the great axe causes considerable amusement amongst the crowd.

"I didn't see that coming, did you?" says someone.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The grumpy snake is dispatched without further ado.

The writing on the chest lids appears to be in Vudran. Can anyone read that?

Both the chest to the left and the chest to the right show up as being poisoned. The open chest contains six potions, none of which indicate as poison.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The wolves are preoccupied and fail to spot Lothar...

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

All you know, dear Silena, is that it's happened. Didn't look like Kardswann was spellcasting, he was busy wrestling.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The mage hand opens the chest (which wasn't locked). Hissing like a tea-kettle a crimson snake rears up, spreading a cobra-like hood, and looking around for something to bite!

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The leopard is somewhat startled as the world around her enlarges... or is it that she has shrunk?

Kardswann surges upright, hurling a kitten-sized leopard aside.

And we shall have your actions and rolls for the next round, please.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The gem in the wall is indeed a third eye bloodstone. As for why it's green... well, nobody knows. You do not, anyway!

Majenko thinks there's something alive in the middle chest.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

OK, Kardswann is pinned good and proper. Good leopard!

Hijiro misses with his rapier, possibly distracted by stray vipers or possibly arrows from above... that hit Kardswann, by the way, nice shot Barezata. Two vipers bit successfully as well.

Kardswann save #1: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (17) + 12 = 29
Kardswann save #2: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (7) + 12 = 19

Silena, please make a DC14 will save.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Excellent. It's almost 31 years since I got wed and it's been absolutely wonderful. Every good wish to you and the other lucky soul.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Samuel, the assorted denizens of the Battle Market are more interested in watching the show (and taking bets on it) than in interfering. The silver and black leopard is odds-on favourite.

I think it's the next round so sound off on what you want to do (apart from that delightful leopard... I know what you are doing!).

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

They still do not seem to have noticed you.
