Oh, don’t sweat it, Wembly.

This is such a busy time of year. There’s so much family, festivity and demon-slaying that all needs to be taken care of …

✪⛄❄☠

I’ll post the ground rules now, nice and early in case there are any questions.

• Please make it obvious what buffs you have active and what your AC is.

• I will roll group initiative and track actions in ‘block’ order. In the example below, the PCs highlighted in bold text on the Line 1 ‘block’ can post actions in any order and I will adjudicate those actions in the order they were posted.

You can delay to a later position anywhere in initiative, as normal. As the turn for each PC’s block comes up, I will bold that block and invite those PCs to post their actions.

Round #1: Initiative (OK to click - not secret):

Jillia Initiative: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11
Rika Initiative: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (10) + 2 = 12
Master Mido Initiative: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 3 = 9
Revvy Initiative: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (15) + 8 = 23
Vahnt Initiative: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (19) + 5 = 24
Wembly + Whiskers Initiative: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (17) + 3 = 20

Despicable Villain: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (6) + 8 = 14


1. Vahnt, Revvy, Wembly + Whiskers
2. KHAAAAAAAN!
3. Rika, Jillia, Mido

Vahnt, Revvy, Wembly & Whiskers go first!

• Wembly and Whiskers have the same initiative modifier, so I would like to make one roll for the pair to keep them together and the game moving.

• I will roll any passive Perception checks for Wembly and Whiskers individually.

• Miss is always low if a miss chance applies. For example, if there is a 50% miss chance on a melee attack, a result of 1-50 on d100 is a miss.

• I generally allow PCs to roll their own saving throws, AoOs etc. However …

• This is designed to be a fast-paced scenario. If you do not post an action in combat within 24 hours from when I invite you to post, I reserve the right to take actions for your character.

• If I make a mistake on the current round, please let me know and I will try to make it right.

Any questions, please let me know in Discussion or via PM.

Oooooh ... Love that 'Rock Salt' font in the Blood Under Absalom title.

Thanks, Hmm & Shifty!

Scarab Sages

A downcast Kelishite priestess of Sarenrae speaks quietly with a muscular female half-orc, accompanied by a well-nourished owlbear outfitted in leather barding.

Rumor #8:
“The stage magician Ali Khalid Mustafa Ansari is upset at having been dropped from the Frothing Alembic’s Foundation Day entertainment lineup!”

“A young, up-and-coming skald named Omar Posada has been booked in his place! He’s a protégé of Venture Captain Hugo’s you know. And VC Hugo is a good friend of VC Filosten, who owns the Alembic tavern!”

*shakes head* “It’s not WHAT you know in the Society …”

The half-orc ranger rummages inside a hessian sack before producing a stunned Children's python which she tosses casually to her animal companion. The owlbear HOOTS with glee before sucking the treat down his gullet, like it's spaghetti.

“Well, Hailey. Have you heard:

“VC Dreng is only seen after dusk these days, and disappears before dawn!”

“Everyone knows he’s got a new day job moonlighting as a sales assistant at the Black Mask costume shop in the Ascendant Court.”

“What many people don’t know is his new found fondness for red wine. And he always has a dhampir Pathfinder fill his glass from a private reserve.”

Scarab Sages

Diri punches a few buttons and maneuvers a joystick on the outside of her armor, to direct a small parabolic dish on her right shoulder in Jillia’s direction.

The tinker-gnome frowns in concentration as she squints into a pop-down monocular lense. "Halfling. Female. Pathfinder."

"Disposition: manic cheerful; likely unpredictable and prone to whimsy."

THREAT ASSESSMENT: LOW++

"Nutty as a chipmunk’s cheeks – but relatively harmless." Diri misdiagnoses as her monoscope flips down again. "She’s probably a bard."

A passing dwarf bearing a holy symbol of Erastil, and wielding a roc drumstick in one hand and a gallon stein of lager in the other remarks, “Too much ale made me think I was a bard once. Harraharrrr.”

However, the greasy bearded brother gets spooked by an unnerving glance from Diri’s Varisian companion and hurries away.

Scarab Sages

Awww … you say the nicest things, Vahnt ;)

I do enjoy trying to create a fun atmosphere for you the players. It also eases the sting a bit if I kill one of your PCs ;)

It’s great to be able to play a game that’s part acting/part tactical combat with like-minded people from all over the world.

The two seven-way humor, suspense and tension that can be generated via this medium is just so interesting I think.

Scarab Sages

1 person marked this as a favorite.
Vahnt wrote:
"Why ever would zey send ze likes of you to make a good impression?"

The Pathfinders in the vicinity move away from the pair, expecting the half-orc to break the ‘co-operate’ tenet of the Pathfinder creed – and perhaps the Galtan’s skull as well.

However, the verdant-skinned ranger just grins, showing Vahnt his sharpened fangs. “You don't intimidate Mohok, Galtan porc-chien!”

“Your mère was a giant space-hamster and your père smelt of elderberries! I cut the fromage in your direction générale!”

The muscle man then turns his back on Vahnt and strolls in the direction of a pile of bronze clockwork housing a female gnome, carrying on a rather one-sided conversation with a tall, dark Varisian man bearing a weathered longbow and quiver on his back.

“Did you hear zat man’s acczent, Diri? C’est très ridicule!”

The gnome engineer pauses for a nano-second to sigh. “The probability that you have switched your active auditory senses to stand-by mode relative to my personal space-time coordinates approaches Factorial Zero raised to the first power, Roland.”

"Now if you'll authorize me to get a word into your verbal stream after rotating it 90º about the y-axis ..."

Rumor #7:
“Two demonologists, a Riftwarden and a Blackfire Adept have discovered similar quantum properties between Blackfire and Grayflame after collaborating at a clandestine lab deep in the Worldwound.”

“The pair is presently meeting with their superiors in Absalom to organize a truce between the rival organizations, so they can negotiate permanent access to the site with the Cult of Deskari.”

Queen Galfrey of Mendev has asked her allies the Pathfinder Society to eliminate the dissidents, get the two organizations back at each other’s throats and keep the Riftwardens firmly onside with the Fifth Crusade.”

Scarab Sages

The rumor mill’s in overdrive!

An Order of the Scourge Hellknight complains bitterly to a pair of Garundi half-elves. “Do you know how many Pathfinders have asked me how Michellia is and whether I’m enjoying married life??”

The younger of the two pays scant attention to the cavalier’s griping, as he hums an up-tempo tune under his breath. A high quality lute is slung over his left shoulder.

His companion, a tall, urbane man wearing the working vestments of a bishop of Abadar replies patiently, “Not now, Manius. We have more important things to concern ourselves with...”

Rumor #5:
“Turns out the Aspis defectors Kafar and Nefti were plants, loyal to the Consortium all along!”

“I told Venture-Captain Valsin they were playing us. But he wouldn’t listen.”

“The pair have now fled the city headed back to Bloodcove, after discovering the secret identities of the Ten …”

An auburn-haired working girl stands primly on the arm of a noble, po-faced paladin of Iomedae, gossiping with a handsome, blond man sipping ale from a pewter mug. “Bray, have you heard?”

Rumor #6:
“Where the Aspis failed, the Technic League have succeeded!”

"The Black Sovereign’s agents have stolen the Sky Key, which has been hidden aboard the merchant vessel Irrational Exuberance, bound for the port city of Cassomir."

"VC Dreng thinks our best chance of recovering the artifact is to intercept the thieves before they manage to smuggle it ashore in Taldor."

Scarab Sages

Welcome, Mido!

So I think it’s settled. The game will be run at sub-tier 5-6.

Rika, I wish you luck with your choice between (anime warrior?) personality and deranged, outrageous behavior ;)

Scarab Sages

♪ I heard a rumor … ♫

A graceful tiger-striped woman in a tight-fitting black cat-suit, performs tricks, sleights and the occasional flashy flip, punctuated with throaty *growls* to a tiny elfin-fey wearing a garland of red poppies in her hair.

Rumor #3:
"A high-ranking Red Mantis assassin named Chivane accepted a contract from the Ten last month and has assassinated Grand Master Torch."

"However, the Ten have reneged on the agreed fee – a holy relic called St Cuthbert’s Mace."

"Now a Mantis kill team has arrived in town. The red woman wants what she’s owed!"

Knowledge (planes) DC 16:
The lithe female is a Beastbrood or Rakshasha-touched tiefling.

Knowledge (nature) DC 11:
The tiny fey with the friendly look on her expressive face is a Brownie.

A female black knight sporting a golden cape whispers to a pretty, freckle-dusted pistoleer, wearing a tall hat and a short skirt.

Rumor #4:
"Aspis heavyweights Rataji, Zurnzal and ‘The Professional’ have been spotted drinking in some dive down by the Docks."

"Word is they are looking to take the Test of the Starstone, with the survivor rising to become the demigod of Greed."

“They have been consulting with a disgruntled Lantern Lodge Seeker named Sawatashi Hasegawa, but whether they are seeking her advice on the Test or are attempting to recruit her for their endeavor, nobody knows.”

Scarab Sages

Whether you’ve been sweltering in the Osirion sands beneath the Pillars of the Sun or freezing your buns ice fishing in the frozen tundra of the Linnorm Kingdoms, you receive a missive from a black-clad ninja whose hachimaki or Minkaian head-scarf bears the Glyph of the Open Road, summoning you to an emergency meeting at the Grand Lodge in Absalom.

On arrival in the courtyard lawn under the judging gaze of the statue of Durvin Gest, you stand with dozens of your peers. As you wait for an official announcement you can’t help but overhear a number of rumors circulating among the throng regarding the reason for this gathering …

Rumor #1:
A hulking half-orc with THREE(!) falchions slung across his back mutters angrily, “This is gonna be ANOTHER one of those damn social party missions.” *eye roll*

Ambrus Valsin and Zarta Dralneen are getting married! Right here, later this afternoon. 'Zambrus' have decided to leave the Society … I hear she’s having a baby.”

“Venture-Captain Hugo Victor is taking over the Grand Lodge faction and becoming the Ten’s Chamberlain. I spotted him talking to that Hellknight Damian Blakros earlier …”

Rumor #2:
A hyperactive gnome with singed eyebrows and covered in soot confides, “A Paladin-Seeker of Iomedae named Omrax the Cheeky has challenged the Shadow Lodge’s old ally, the Black Wyrm Zythrustianax to single combat above the skies of Absalom, with the entire city as the stakes!”

“The Ten are wondering if there might be some other Pathfinder here today who is more qualified to represent the city as its Champion …”

Scarab Sages

Kan-Yeh, what I'll do is get an introductory post up in gameplay inside the next 18 hours and PM everyone asking them to check in here and/or dot in there.

There is one player I haven't gamed with before, who has signed up in good faith at 5-6.

So it kinda depends whether s/he has a PC free at a different sub-tier as to whether we change or not. The PC s/he proposes to bring at 5-6 looks fun!

Now I am conscious it is ~Thanksgiving in the States, so it might take a while for everyone to check in. But once they have we'll get this sucka nailed!

Having said all that, if you need to know now for keeping a PC free/other reasons I'd assume 5-6. :)

Scarab Sages

Woo hoo!

Might be selfish of me, but I saw you were signed up to GM but was really hoping you'd still be able to play! :)

Scarab Sages

Upaynao, so glad you could make it! ;)

Jezabel is such a hoot – but I suspect ALL of your characters are … interesting.

So play who you want to play!

Scarab Sages

Diri, Nice to see you :)

I have indicated 5-6 on the sign-up sheet, but would be open to a change if everyone agrees. (I enjoy Diri’s character very much) If you need to know now in order to keep a particular PC free, I’d assume 5-6.

Maybe we wait and see what everyone brings.

Scarab Sages

Welcome, players to the Season 3 Multi-table PbP Special Blood Under Absalom organized by Shifty.

I am looking forward to running this Special for you.

Although the game doesn’t start until January 13, I’m opening the Discussion thread so you can check-in and to let you know I have begun prepping the scenario for you.

I plan on opening the Game Play thread for dotting in a day or two.

In a bit, I will also make some notes about how I like to run my games, but if you have played PbP on the Paizo boards with GMs like Aarvid or Endless Forms, there won’t be any surprises.

Please take a moment to sign in >>here<<, so I get your Chronicle out to you you promptly when the game is finished.

Feel free to ask any questions here and once again, welcome aboard!

Scarab Sages

That went quicker then I expected.

This was easily the fastest game I have run as a PbP.

The GM boards mention it runs fast in F2F as well.

It reads very well, and was packed full of lore and roleplay opportunities. Because you guys didn’t ‘murder-hobo’ the Pilgrim’s Path and scored so well on the Q&A, we skipped the final combat with Jiraku.

I wonder if this might make a good ‘bridging scenario’ for new GM’s, to transition them from running Tier 1-5 to 3-7?

Regardless, more from Mikko Kallio please!

Scarab Sages

It was my pleasure running for you all.

Dusk, Hailey and Pitbull should have received their e-mailed chronicles by now.

Getting Harmonius and Salouris’ out to them is on my to-do list over the next day or so.

I will contact Kish to see how she is going. She has a Day Job, so I won’t report the game and Deactivate this thread until everything is all sorted.

✰✰✰✰✰

FYI, I am running the Season 3 multi-table special Blood Under Absalom in Standard Mode under the oversight of 5-star Pitbull (congratz!) early in the new year.

I believe the game is scheduled to start on January 13.

If you are interested in playing, let me know! @Dusk, you are already signed up.

Scarab Sages

“Your advice is sound. Perhaps the Pathfinder Society’s actual methods do not reflect its reputation.”

Jiraku places Tanbaru in Mask form on her face, smiles, and says, “I’m sad about what happened to you, Tanbaru, but I need you to remind me why I must never abandon my duty.”

“Tell the Old Pak thanks for everything, Pathfinders.” The spirit Mask mouths. “Perhaps we shall meet again?”

☯☯☯☯

Back in Ramparassad, Old Pak listens with interest to the account of your adventure. “Ms Amara will be most pleased with your Chronicle. Yes.”

He wistfully notes the departure of a friend before cheerfully declaring, “That might be reason enough for me to visit the temple sometime.”

“Once word of the ward reunited gets out, the site might once again attract Yamatsumi’s faithful to repair the trail and temple, earning the Society goodwill throughout Dtang Ma.”

Scarab Sages

Harmonius arches his neck and throws up both arms, as his parting legs ease him slowly to the hard stone floor. While the dancer’s heaving chest signals the end his performance, Jiraku’s reptilian skin moults from her body and vaporizes into a rank, sulphurous cloud, which is quickly dissipated by the howling wind curtain that surrounds her.

Her statue form, the same color and texture of the igneous rock around you, lies beneath. The kami raises and lowers both hands. The pooling lava cools, the shaking stops and the winds die down, allowing you to hear her gravelly voice clearly.

“Despite some stumbles, I sense your honest remorse. So few visitors brave the Path these days. And fewer still are those who have shown as much respect for local traditions as you. I have forsaken my family and duty to cower in this place, but perhaps there is hope for me yet.”

“Study the temple, rest and prepare for your return journey, Pilgrims. My brother and I must converse in private, but we will rejoin you before you leave.”

Several days pass swiftly as you study and chronicle the temple remains for Amara Li. There is no sign of the Mountain Spirit siblings as you spend the hours working and relaxing.

On the morning you break camp to return to Ramparassad, Jiraku and Tanbaru return.

“Thank-you for convincing me to attempt redemption, Pilgrims. Tanbaru cannot decide whether his duty now lies here with me or with Old Pak and your Pathfinder Society.”

“We would both hear your counsel on the matter.”

Scarab Sages

The end is nigh, so can I please have everyone roll day jobs so I can start the Chronicles?

If you could please check that everything in the reporting sheet >>Here<< is OK, that would also help me out.

EDIT: Oh, my preferred method of getting you your Chronicles is by e-mail.

If you are not comfortable with PMing me that information – absolutely no worries! I will add your Chronicle pdf to my Google Drive and provide the link address here.

I already have e-mail addresses for Dusk, Hailey, Kish & Pitbull.

Scarab Sages

Suggested skills:

Diplomacy, Knowledge (planes), Knowledge (engineering), Knowledge (religion), Intimidate

No bonuses to anyone’s rolls this time.

Jiraku stares at the spirit oni while Pitbull and Dusk speak. “Tanbaru? Is that really you? Come closer so I can see...”

“I have returned, my sister.” The small outsider reluctantly drifts forward, his head hung low.

“While what Pitbull says about my forced exile is essentially true, it was my decision to turn from my faith. But I am not alone.”

“As Salouris just said, take an honest look at yourself, Jiraku.”

♨⚕⛰☠

Jiraku looks down at her body, as if seeing her scaly skin and slithering tongue for the first time. “You and the half-orc are correct, dark elf. I have failed my ward.”

Salouris wrote:
“Volcanoes bring about change: often violent and upsetting at the time …”

Suddenly, she looks up in raging despair.

Golarion trembles, and fiery flashes are visible at the summit of the mountain looming over the temple. Droplets of lava begin to seep and bead at the seams between the temple’s stone blocks.

Harmonius’ silent, twisting, snake-like dance is somehow the perfect backdrop to the drama unfolding. A saga about to reach its crescendo, after building for a thousand years.

The Pathfinders’ actions are about to decide.

A dance of celebration? Or a dance of death?

“Tell me why I shouldn’t just let the fire and ash of Yamatsumi cleanse this befouled place?”

Scarab Sages

Suggested skills:

Bluff, Diplomacy, Knowledge (planes), Knowledge (religion)

For reasons … Everyone gets a +4 bonus on your next skill check

Pitbull & Salouris:
You both get an additional stacking +2 bonus on your roll.

Searching for Tanbaru who is hiding in the corner, Jiraku asks her second question:

“This is no place for an oni! What were you thinking when you brought that creature here?”

Scarab Sages

Some suggested skills. (You don’t have to use these):

Bluff, Diplomacy, Knowledge (geography), Knowledge (local), Perform (oratory)

I will post other suggested skills for the remaining questions.

Sense Motive DC 15:
You realize that not all options are equal—choosing the wrong approach may anger the stone woman even if the check is successful.

Pitbull wrote:
“… so far I have done more for the sanctity of this place than you have!”

At Pitbull’s words, the living statue quakes with fury, her form blurs into that of a reptilian outsider.

Knowledge (planes) DC 21:
She appears to be transforming into some unique form of oni.

“The Lord of the Mountain judgesss Jiraku, NOT MORTALSss! He Ssshows no sssign of any Dissspleasssure.”

Pitbull wrote:
“Don't believe me? Ask Tanbaru.”

“You err invoking the name of that Mighty Zuishin in my presence. My brother abandoned his post here centuries ago.”

**Please roll a skill check along with your answers**

EDIT: @Harmonius, yah! No problem :)

Scarab Sages

While you are busy striking oil in the Sacristy, you hear the ROAR of a typhoon coming from the Idol Room.

Tanbaru gives Pitbull a frightened glance, before the ranger leads the party back to investigate.

Surrounded by fierce whirling winds, an athletic woman of living stone is standing atop the head of the massive serpentine statue.

She doesn’t look best pleased.

Knowledge (planes) DC 21:
The female appears to be a dosojin kami.

In a booming telepathic voice, she declares, “For over a thousand years I’ve stood vigil over the procession that leads up to this temple.”

“I was watching you while you walked the Pilgrim’s Path. Everything you faced along the way was a test of your abilities and your character.”

She stabs an angry finger at Salouris. “It was you who defiled my holy ward with restless dead!”

Her criticism is not restricted to the occultist however.

“You barbarians all engaged in the bloodletting of the other vandals, with no thought to the sanctity of this hallowed stone!”

A stony glance comes Pitbull's way. "Some of you even revelled in your blasphemy!"

“By the Mountain Lord, your test is not over. NAY! Not by a long chalk! Now answer my questions and face my judgment!”

????

“Who are you and why are you here?”

Rules of this test:
The stone lady will ask a number of questions.

How you answer these questions directly impacts the mission.

When you answer the question, choose ANY relevant skill related to how you are answering it, and roll a skill check.

Only ONE skill can be used for each question. But you can repeat that skill for other questions if you wish.

You cannot Take 10 or 20.

I will take the PC with the largest roll for the chosen skill as the primary respondent, with everyone else who rolls Aiding Another.

For example:

Stone lady asks “What is 2+2?”

Salouris replies, “I am a mathematical protégé, My Lady. The answer is 4.”

Knowledge (engineering): 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7

“True.” Harmonius agrees. “But equally it is the square root of 16.”

Knowledge (engineering): 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9

The result would be 9!

Any questions, please let me know.

When Pitbull leads you back to the north-eastern chamber, a more careful search discovers that magic oils intended for religious purposes are stored amongst the old bottles.

These include:

“Nuh.” Tanbaru replies rudely, though he appears to be telling the truth. “Musta been busy … trying to save my life maybe?”

Salours wrote:
“I didn't think nature Gods cared much either way about remains.”

“They don’t, Salouris. Indeed they're perfectly natural. And neither do paladins, parents or other upright, gods-fearing folk.”

“But try animating those remains and have them do things for your own gain in their home or place of worship and see how they react.”

Pitbull finds nothing of value in the new room, but notices some recently made bundles of dried rabbit meat.

Perception DC 19:
You notice five eggs hidden amid the clothes.

Please roll a Knowledge (nature) check.

Old clothes, barrels, large sacks, rusted pickaxes, and other miscellaneous junk lies in piles in this room.

Scarab Sages

Dusk only meant to stop her escaping. Honest he did.

The Silver Crusader aims a low sweep of his gladius at the back of Ngon Le’s knee. The Nagaji’s unfortunate landing and the subsequent collapse of said knee, results in her neck aligning with Dusk’s perfectly-timed slash.

The creature’s head takes a long roll to the south to greet Pitbull, it’s bloody wake a crimson arrow pointing back to raw materials suitable for manufacturing a half-orc fashion accessory.

With much less drama, Harmonius simply drives the point of his curved blade through Kolmorrow’s right eye, bringing the running battle through the temple to a sudden end.

Out of Combat

Pitbull: 23/73
Dusk: 46/58

Tanbaru lifts his head up from behind that of the idol’s. “Well. We sure showed those lizards, huh?”

“Is there anywhere we haven’t explored yet, Pathfinders?”

Temple exploration map is also at the top left of the page.

Scarab Sages

“Hsssamira sssave us! The wizard’sss clearly a necromancccer.” A staggered Kolmorrow clutches his chest at Salouris’ dark touch.

Hearing Pitbull and Asbo’s cold-blood freezing celebration, Ngon Le concludes that Marsiass is gone.

She states calmly, “You know what to do, Kolmorrow.”

Acrobatics: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (6) + 10 = 16

Ngon Le attempts a standing backflip, but muffs the landing providing both Dusk and Kishara with an open target.

Provokes from Dusk and Kishara!

If she survives:

She continues to the south on a sprained ankle, before spinning 180 degrees to blast Dusk with another scorching ray.

Goodness me, yes:
I didn’t want to have to explain to you why Kish was dead when you got back! ;)

Seriously though, you are hasted, so a double move was like, 90’

Also, the room you haven’t explored yet is close to the spot I chose. Probably just a coincidence…

As Kishara sprints east to assist Dusk, she finds an interior wall of the temple prevents her from flanking.

Despite the slayer not providing an added distraction, the rogue still manages to run her short sword through the muscle below the Nagaji’s shoulder blade.

Ngon Le cries out!

However, it is more in desperation, than in pain. "Kolmorrow, the goddessss MUSSST have her sssacrificcce!"

The yellow-eyed humanoid nods his understanding and sizes up Hailey.

Yellow IUS Flurry #1 + stunning fist on Hailey: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (18) + 8 = 26

Harmonius’ leaping pirouette, like an Iobarian skating champ, combined with the end over end twirl of his scimitar, reminiscent of a White Grotto student’s baton spin in front of a full house at the Irorium, ends with a *screech* from Kolmorrow somewhere above High-C.

Dusk takes a risk trying to duck Ngon Le’s smoking fist on his way to assist Hailey. He stumbles as he attempts to dodge, and the Nagaji connects, breaking his nose!

Pink IUS AoO on Dusk + Stunning Fist: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (15) + 8 = 23
bludgeoning damage: 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (8) + 4 = 12

Dusk Fort vs Stunning Fist: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (13) + 6 = 19

He shakes off the effect (not stunned), and responds with his own diving thrust through Ngon Le's upper leg.

Round #2/3:

1. Marsiass (red), Kolmorrow (gold)
2. Salouris, Hailey
3. Ngon Le (pink)
4. Kishara, Dusk, Pitbull + Asbo, Harmonius

Pitbull: 23/73
Dusk: 58 - 12 = 46/58 NOT stunned

Just the threatened squares, Dusk.

As Pitbull appears at the temple entrance, she is again confronted by the Nagaji’s longbow.

Red-ied Longbow + true strike – deadly aim + human bane on Pitbull: 1d20 + 6 + 20 - 2 + 2 ⇒ (11) + 6 + 20 - 2 + 2 = 37
magic piercing damage + deadly aim + human bane arrow: 1d8 + 5 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 5 + 4 + 2 = 17 + bane damage: 2d6 ⇒ (1, 6) = 7

The shaft takes Pitbull high in the left pectoral - but it's not enough to slow her down.

Pushing Asbo out of the way, the ranger grabs the back of the archer's head and with a violent PULL, drives Marsiass' neck fully two feet down the waiting length of her blade - narrowly missing her own scale-filled fist in her rage.

The nagaji drops his bow, lifts fluttering eyelids to the temple ceiling, *wheezes* once and expires where he stands.

Round #2/3:

1. Marsiass (red), Kolmorrow (gold)
2. Salouris, Hailey
3. Ngon Le (pink)
4. Kishara, Dusk, Pitbull + Asbo, Harmonius

Pitbull: 23/73

With her first strike, Hailey opens a small cut across Kolmorrow's shoulder.

The jaundiced Nagaji's only reply is, "Ngon Le! I've found her."

♨♨♨♨

The pink-tongued Nagaji spares Dusk neither word nor glance.

She does leave him with a parting gift however …

Pink RTA scorching ray on Dusk: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (3) + 5 = 8
fire damage: 4d6 ⇒ (3, 5, 2, 5) = 15 (no save)

She then races 40’ to the north-west in pursuit of Hailey.

Cool skelie, Salouris!

Kolmorrow watches Saloris’ undead instrument pull itself out of the stone temple floor using its upper arm bones, not unlike the way a medium earth elemental does, before it rakes a claw across the Nagaji’s face.

All present hear a breathless *GASP*, followed by the whispered word “Blasphemy…” in Tanbaru’s contralto tone.

However, the angry muttering is not coming from behind the stone idol where the oni cowers.

Just checked GM Kish’s games. Seems a cold is raging through her household, so I’ll bot her this round.

Feeling the heat directed her way, Kishara draws a short sword and advances 90’ in a different direction past Tanbaru, who offers:

“Hey, everyone! I’m OK in case you were wondering…”

Deciding that Asbo’s little peck is going to have to last him all day, Marsiass blows a kiss to Pitbull as he retreats up the steps through the eastern doorway.

“Ssseee yer, sssoft-shhhell. Have a nicccce day!”

Provokes from Pitbull and Asbo!

Dusk wrote:
“Ready to surrender yet?”

Kolmorrow charges away from Dusk in order to harass Hailey, calling back over his shoulder, “Yessssir! I sssurrender!”

Provokes from Dusk!

Yellow improved unarmed strike (IUS) on Hailey + stunning fist: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (2) + 8 = 10

Dusk, yep haste is up when you take your AoO. Unfortunately ….

Ngon Le gives Dusk a scornful look as she ducks his gladius thrust without slowing down.

The Slayer then does an end around his quarry, looking to cut her off. As he rounds the corner for home like a greyhound after a hare, he finds his opponent alright.

Just not the one he was expecting ...

“Marsssiasss, you took you ti …” Kolmorrow begins before stuttering:

“WAIT! You not … HEY! Don’t I know you from sssomewhere?”

☯♊☯♊

As Pitbull moves through the open doorway, an arrow splinters the stone plinth beside her right eye.

Red-ied Longbow + true strike – deadly aim + human bane on Pitbull: 1d20 + 6 + 20 - 2 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 6 + 20 - 2 + 2 = 27
magic piercing damage + deadly aim + human bane arrow: 1d8 + 5 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 5 + 4 + 2 = 17 + bane damage: 2d6 ⇒ (6, 3) = 9

Undeterred she continues into the temple courtyard to set up a distracting flank with her AC.

Marsiass's shaking head draws Asbo's attention, resulting in a firm *PECK* on the lizardman's left cheek.

Salouris aims at speeding up the process.

Ngon Le steps sideways and then past Dusk into the eastern chamber, before reappearing not far from Kishara. Provokes from Dusk!

“Now for the infid… WHAT’SSS THISSS! SHHHE’SSS GONE!!”

The reptilian mutters angrily as she blasts the stone floor in front of the Pathfinder rogue with another scorching ray. “Kolmorrow, find the Sssun Priessst!”

Uneasy about losing sight of Pitbull, Marsiass (red) moves back from the 'hoo-bear' and hurries through the open eastern doorway, down the temple steps and out of sight.

Provokes from Asbo!

Temple steps are Difficult Terrain

Kalmorrow (gold) also heads east, pulling a very similar disappearing act.

The green snake lashes out at the last one to hurt it – Dusk!

Green’s venom-filled fangs are no match for Harmonius’ Vitamin D-rich blood. The swashbuckler easily *shrugs* off the poison’s effects.

With the striking speed of a South Arcadian carniv-fish, Dusk’s gladius ‘ring-barks’ the serpent’s torso. The pneumatic sound it makes in response is now familiar to the entire party.

The pink-tongued humanoid *waggles* a smoking index finger at the two front-liners. “Your weapon ss-still not inflicting all the damage you think it ss-should, elf?”

Unfortunately for Harmonius, as he moves within 10’ of his opponent, a green serpent leads with its fangs as it slithers 5' from behind cover to block the braavi duelist’s path.

Green Readied bite on Harmonius: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (16) + 9 = 25

A ray of flame gushes from the pink-tongued reptilian’s open hand.

Pitbull and Asbo round the statue, looking for three ambushers.

Tanbaru flits nonchalantly to the apex of the idol, draping himself over the top of the stone serpent’s head, like the knotted-hankie of a Taldan holiday-maker.

“Is it just statues you have a problem with Pitbull, or are menhirs and milestones out to get you too?”

The oni smirks. “How many statues do you see this time?”

⚕⚕⚕⚕

The coordinated shouts of a pair of reptilian humanoids, wipe the smile off the mean-spirited outsider’s face.

“THE ELF ISSS MINE!” They cry out in unison.

There’s a pregnant pause, before yellow-eared Kolmorrow clarifies. “I meant the Sssnow-cassster.”

Ignoring the to and fro amongst the party, Tanbaru continues to frown at the statue, periodically shaking his head.

“Looks like it’s possible to climb up on that thing.”

Dusk:

You change your mind about the ‘topazes.’ You believe they are actually gem-shaped vessels of honey, orientated to catch the light in such a way that they *sparkle*

After all, honey can last for centuries without going rancid.

The honey containers are more interesting – perhaps some kind of Numerian super-polymer?
