Yay,another one today, followed by two more close calls.
Class/Level: Sorcerer 15
Adventure: Mummy's Mask Book 6
Location: Water Crypt
Catalyst: Bad luck
So while exploring the water temple they come across the statue of Nialah. They set things up pretty well, go to stone shape the crown off her head. She goes first and wails. Sadly our ifrit sorceress didn't have enough hit points to survive the failed save.
And the two near close calls after, both by the same monster
They come upon the water temples general, the Ghassawa Div. The ninja is for whatever reason leading the movement into the room. One of our bruisers is out in the hall (he's in huge elemental form at this point and doesn't want to give it up). I had given the Div a quick runner shirt since I have 5 PCs and wanted to scare them a bit first round. Things got out of hand.
Div goes and drops the ninja in one round, then poisons the fighter and does 6 points of strength damage. They continue and due to strange tactics I really don't understand end up with the Div in the middle of them 2nd round. Third round the Div full attacks the fighter and almost drops her. Fortunately the oracle used a ranged heal on her to keep her alive (while hiding in a forcecage at this point) as the Div's full attack next round would've dropped her with enough attacks to also finish off the unconsious ninja. In the end they managed to drop him but it was close for a moment.
After in the room with the two brother crocodile statues I managed to get three party members baleful polymorphed, two failing the will save following. Good time!
