Since there is no way to make bright light. Rowane will just cast a spell.

Rowane cast a spell and a magic crossbow appears and slams itself into one of the creatures.

spiritual weapon: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (4) + 6 = 101d8 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 1 = 6


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

The wounded creature manages to dodge the bolt of force.

Cora?


Female Aasimar (Plumekith) Inquisitor/Magus 4 [HP: 1/32 | AC: 18| T: 13| FF: 15| CMB:+5 | CMD:18 | Fort:+5 | Ref:+4 | Will:+7 | Init:+7 | Perc:+12 (Darkvision) | Spd 30/Fly 20]

Cora takes a moment to watch the way the creatures move before she draws and carefully fires at the closest of the grioths.

Move action- Studied Target on closest grioth (looks like that's Green).

C. Longbow PBS+ST+Deadly Aim: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (13) + 9 = 22
Dmg: 1d8 + 7 ⇒ (1) + 7 = 8


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

In dodging Rowane's attack, the grioth leaves an opening for the keen-eyed aasimar. Cora's arrow finds some vital spot on the wounded creature, and it falls.

More to come when I'm able to post from a computer.


stats:

Machi-e uses some of his Prescience, should the grioths attack him.

Prescience: 1d20 ⇒ 16

Not bad; we'll see if I need that for a save.

He spends the rest of his time summoning a small air elemental.

Summon Monster II.


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Machi-e, you've already acted this round. The monsters get to act first at the top of the next round.


stats:

Oh, sorry about that! consider those my actions for next round!


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

No problem; I was posting from my phone, and didn't provide a lot of detail.

Round 2 (ongoing):

Initiative order
Grioths-acted
Nezos
Cora
Machi-e
Rowane

The three remaining grioths launch themselves into the air and fly towards the party. Two alight and attack Nezos with curved blades made from some glasslike substance, while the third remains airborne and focuses its attention on Rowane. The half-elf is able to dodge both attacks.

Rowane, DC 12 Will save or confused.

Party up!

Dice rolls:
Attack on Nezos: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (14) + 3 = 17
Attack on Nezos: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (8) + 3 = 11

Grioths AC 14 T 14 FF 10 Red: -0 HP Blue: -0 HP Yellow: -0 HP


Female Aasimar (Plumekith) Inquisitor/Magus 4 [HP: 1/32 | AC: 18| T: 13| FF: 15| CMB:+5 | CMD:18 | Fort:+5 | Ref:+4 | Will:+7 | Init:+7 | Perc:+12 (Darkvision) | Spd 30/Fly 20]

The steady archer remains where she is and studies the flying grioth's movement as she draws another arrow. After a moment she fires a careful shot where she thinks the creature will be.

Move action to study the flying grioth, standard to shoot.

C. Longbow PBS+ST+Deadly Aim: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (5) + 9 = 14
Dmg: 1d8 + 7 ⇒ (5) + 7 = 12

Conditions:

Nezos fights on, craning his neck to watch for any people foolish enough to remain. He yells for them to leave if they aren't in transit already.

Bastard Sword vs. Blue: 1d20 + 8 - 2 ⇒ (19) + 8 - 2 = 25
Confirmation: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (19) + 6 = 25
Critical Damage: 2d10 + 10 ⇒ (2, 9) + 10 = 21


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Round 2 (ongoing):

Initiative order
Grioths-acted
Nezos-acted
Cora-acted
Machi-e
Rowane

Nezos cuts down one of the grioths attacking him, while Cora's arrow severely wounds the flyer.

Rowane? Machi-e, are you going to continue as you intended before?


Male Human Cleric of Abadar 4-variant bard| 28/28| AC 18, T 11, FF 17| F:+6, R:+3, W:+8, | Perp: +10 Init: +1| Channel 7/7

will save: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (11) + 8 = 19

spiritual weapon: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (15) + 5 = 201d8 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Rowane shakes off the mental onslaught from the flying grioth and sends a bolt of force at it. This time, he's on target, and the already-wounded creature falls.

Machi-e?


stats:

Apologies for the delay!

Machi-e changes his plans, seeing as how the grioths are falling, and lifts his hands to rain heavenly fire down upon the last grioth.

Ranged Touch: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (18) + 4 = 22
for (no Damage Resistance: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Machi-e hits and slightly wounds the last grioth.

Dice Rolls:
Grioth on Nezos: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (13) + 3 = 16

The grioth is once again unable to connect with Nezos.

The last grioth isn't going to last until its next attack, so I'm going to call it here. Out of combat!


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Thanks to the party's quick action, none of the villagers were killed in the attack. You have a minute or three before anything else happens.


stats:

"Rowane, you've got good eyes. Can you search these creatures? I believe they come from other worlds. Perhaps there's something on their persons...er...bodies...that can elucidate this mystery. It makes me think that..."

Machi-e looks to see where the grioths landed. Was there something they were trying to retrieve...something from another world?


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

There is not. It looks like they were only here to attack the townspeople.


Female Aasimar (Plumekith) Inquisitor/Magus 4 [HP: 1/32 | AC: 18| T: 13| FF: 15| CMB:+5 | CMD:18 | Fort:+5 | Ref:+4 | Will:+7 | Init:+7 | Perc:+12 (Darkvision) | Spd 30/Fly 20]

Cora looks at Machi-e. "You said these things were from a different world. Could they be after those astronomy books? Why else would they be in this small town, attacking people at random?"


stats:

"Perhaps Hunclay's meddling kept a portal open," muses Machi-e.

He scans the area for magic. "Which way did they come from?"


Male Half-Elf Fighter/Cleric 4 | HP 12/32 | AC 20/12/16 (23/13/16 CE) | F +6, R +4, W +3 (+1 vs. arcane, fear; +2 vs. enchantments) | CMB +7, CMD 19 | Init +2 | Perc +6 | Hand of the Acolyte 2/4 |
Conditions:

"I only ever heard the bad stories of portals. Except perhaps the aiudara. Maybe they had some debt or slight left unsettled against the man?"


Male Human Cleric of Abadar 4-variant bard| 28/28| AC 18, T 11, FF 17| F:+6, R:+3, W:+8, | Perp: +10 Init: +1| Channel 7/7

Rowane approaches the creatures and kicks them over. "Disgusting creatures are they not. Not sure what you want me to look for. They do not seem to be wearing much. However, the weapons they wield do look valuable."


Female Aasimar (Plumekith) Inquisitor/Magus 4 [HP: 1/32 | AC: 18| T: 13| FF: 15| CMB:+5 | CMD:18 | Fort:+5 | Ref:+4 | Will:+7 | Init:+7 | Perc:+12 (Darkvision) | Spd 30/Fly 20]

Cora walks over to look at the bodies, as well. "Valuable, you say?" As she approaches the corpses she looks around for anyone or anything that may look out of place- a summoner in the shadows, perhaps, or someone who didn't seem surprised by the attack.

Perception, just looking for anything that might tell us what these things were doing here: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (5) + 12 = 17


stats:

"No way to speak with the dead," says Machi-e. "Stay alert. There could be more."

He turns to the villagers and the auctioneers and the like. "It would be wise to return to your houses until we are certain that danger has passed."


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

The only magic Machi-e detects in the immediate area are the already-identified items in the auction lots. Some of Rowane's colleagues at the temple see to the wounded villagers.

Before the arcanist can do more, a deafening roar fills the air. A large creature descends from the darkness to alight on one of the small storage buildings near the amphitheater. It's scaly and reptilian in form, with batlike wings and flaming spittle drooling from its jaws. Shouts of panic fill the air as the remaining villagers make to flee.

Round 1:

Initiative order
Cora
Machi-e
Rowane
Enemy
Nezos

DC 16 Knowledge (Arcana):
This is not a true dragon, but a particularly robust-looking flame drake.

Cora, Machi-e, and Rowane can act! It's been three minutes since the last fight.

Dice rolls:
Machi-e Initiative: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (8) + 8 = 16
Nezos Initiative: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4
Cora Initiative: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (20) + 7 = 27
Rowane Initiative: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (15) + 1 = 16

Foe Initiative: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (5) + 7 = 12


Female Aasimar (Plumekith) Inquisitor/Magus 4 [HP: 1/32 | AC: 18| T: 13| FF: 15| CMB:+5 | CMD:18 | Fort:+5 | Ref:+4 | Will:+7 | Init:+7 | Perc:+12 (Darkvision) | Spd 30/Fly 20]

Kn:Arcana: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6 I'm assuming everybody in the game world knows what a dragon looks like, at least?

"Get to cover!" In spite of her own advice, Cora lingered a few seconds to watch the monster's movements and after her quick study, launch a single well-aimed arrow at the creature.

Bow+Studied Target+Deadly Aim: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (18) + 8 = 26 +2 against dragon types.
Arrow+ST+DA: 1d8 + 6 ⇒ (8) + 6 = 14 +2 against dragon types.


stats:

Kn Arcana: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (3) + 12 = 15

LOL

Machi-e pulls out a scroll of Enlarge Person and casts it on Rowane.

"The skies around here are truly infested," he remarks. "What's next, a gigantic space worm?"


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Just out of curiosity, were you really wanting to Enlarge your (non-melee) cleric? Also too, enlarge person is a 1-round spell.


stats:

Youch, I mean Nezos! Machi-e has no great options so he will busy himself with bringing the scroll out and seeking cover, if any.


Male Human Cleric of Abadar 4-variant bard| 28/28| AC 18, T 11, FF 17| F:+6, R:+3, W:+8, | Perp: +10 Init: +1| Channel 7/7

knowledge arcana: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (13) + 6 = 19 Resistance and weaknesses

"Not a dragon, just a big drake" Rowane says moving to cover.

If Rowane's spirotual weapon is up, he will have it go up to the drake and smack it. If not will fire is crossbow

Spiritual Weapon:

1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 251d8 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 1 = 6
crit?: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (19) + 5 = 241d8 + 1 ⇒ (7) + 1 = 8

Crossbow:

1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 251d8 ⇒ 8
crit?: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (17) + 5 = 222d8 ⇒ (1, 4) = 5


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Your spiritual weapon only lasted four rounds, and it's been at least a couple of minutes. Also, you didn't exceed the DC to identify by 5 or more, so I think you only get the ID and basic dragon type info. Light crossbows only do 2x damage on a crit.

Round 1 (ongoing):

Initiative order
Cora-acted
Machi-e-acted
Rowane-acted
Flame drake-acted
Nezos

Rowane and Cora land a couple of damaging missiles on the flame drake. Machi-e draws a scroll and runs for cover.

The drake inhales, then breathes out a stream of fire that lands between Rowane and Cora. When it hits the ground, it explodes into a ball of flame that burns Rowane, Cora, and Nezos for 15 HP; DC 18 Reflex save for half damage.

Nezos?

Dice rolls:
Cooldown: 1d6 ⇒ 4
Fireball damage: 5d6 ⇒ (1, 2, 6, 2, 4) = 15

Flame drake: AC 22 T 12 FF 19 HP: -25 HP


Male Human Cleric of Abadar 4-variant bard| 28/28| AC 18, T 11, FF 17| F:+6, R:+3, W:+8, | Perp: +10 Init: +1| Channel 7/7

Okay. I'm used to using bows, have not dabbled with crossbows too often. Still got a crit, most battle like thing that this cleric has done since he joined up


Male Half-Elf Fighter/Cleric 4 | HP 12/32 | AC 20/12/16 (23/13/16 CE) | F +6, R +4, W +3 (+1 vs. arcane, fear; +2 vs. enchantments) | CMB +7, CMD 19 | Init +2 | Perc +6 | Hand of the Acolyte 2/4 |
Conditions:

Reflex: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (1) + 4 = 5

Nezos, though already burned, interposes himself between the drake and his allies.

Will delay until enlarge person goes off, then I'll move to the X. May change tack if something else happens, like the drake closing in.


Male Human Cleric of Abadar 4-variant bard| 28/28| AC 18, T 11, FF 17| F:+6, R:+3, W:+8, | Perp: +10 Init: +1| Channel 7/7

reflex: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (14) + 3 = 17 Damn, so close.

Rowane is scorched by the flames.


Female Aasimar (Plumekith) Inquisitor/Magus 4 [HP: 1/32 | AC: 18| T: 13| FF: 15| CMB:+5 | CMD:18 | Fort:+5 | Ref:+4 | Will:+7 | Init:+7 | Perc:+12 (Darkvision) | Spd 30/Fly 20]

Ref save, DC 18: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (19) + 4 = 23

Cora leaps away into the sky moments before the explosion, though she's not able to entirely escape the flames. "Nice shot, Rowane!" She moves a little closer to the drake, lining up for another shot.

Bow+ST+DA: 1d20 + 8 + 2 ⇒ (18) + 8 + 2 = 28
Arrow+ST+DA: 1d8 + 6 + 2 ⇒ (7) + 6 + 2 = 15

Cora is flying 10' overhead. No Fly check required to fly up at a 45 degree angle at half speed. She'll continue to rise and close in on the drake at 45 degrees until she's 30' off the ground (so 2 more rounds).


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Round 2 (ongoing):

Initiative order
Cora-acted
Machi-e
Rowane
Flame drake
Nezos-delaying

Cora hits with another arrow.

Machi-e and Rowane can act!

Flame drake: AC 22 T 12 FF 19 HP: -40 HP


Male Human Cleric of Abadar 4-variant bard| 28/28| AC 18, T 11, FF 17| F:+6, R:+3, W:+8, | Perp: +10 Init: +1| Channel 7/7

Rowane clasp his holy symbol and says a quick prayer.

Selecting out the Drake
Channel: 2d6 ⇒ (3, 2) = 5 That is about as average as you can get


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

The drake is over 100 feet away, so no need to exclude it.


stats:

Machi-e spends his round casting Enlarge Person on Nezos, hoping the drake will land...

Just to be safe, he tries a little foresight as well.

Spare Roll: 1d20 ⇒ 14


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Round 2 (ongoing):

Initiative order
Cora-acted
Machi-e-acted
Rowane-acted
Flame drake-acted
Nezos-delaying

Machi-e begins to cast. His spell will take effect at his action next round. Rowane sends healing energy into the party, soothing the worst of the burns from the drake.

With an obvious (and dangerous) target presenting itself, the drake flies rapidly at Cora, stooping on her from above. Its jaws close on the aasimar with bone-crushing force, inflicting 21 HP + 1 HP fire damage.

Nezos can act at this point. The drake is 5' higher than Cora, so out of reach.

Dice rolls:
PA bite attack: 1d20 + 12 - 2 ⇒ (16) + 12 - 2 = 26
PA bite damage: 2d6 + 7 + 4 + 1d6 ⇒ (6, 4) + 7 + 4 + (1) = 22

Flame drake: AC 22 T 12 FF 19 HP: -40 HP


Male Half-Elf Fighter/Cleric 4 | HP 12/32 | AC 20/12/16 (23/13/16 CE) | F +6, R +4, W +3 (+1 vs. arcane, fear; +2 vs. enchantments) | CMB +7, CMD 19 | Init +2 | Perc +6 | Hand of the Acolyte 2/4 |
Conditions:

Nezos also banks on the drake landing. For the moment, he stays close to Machi-e, stepping under the flying beast and throwing his sword at it.

Hand of the Acolyte: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (12) + 6 = 18
Damage: 1d10 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Nezos' sword fails to penetrate the drake's scaly hide.

Round 3:

Initiative order
Cora
Machi-e
Rowane
Drake
Nezos

Cora, Machi-e, and Rowane are up!


Female Aasimar (Plumekith) Inquisitor/Magus 4 [HP: 1/32 | AC: 18| T: 13| FF: 15| CMB:+5 | CMD:18 | Fort:+5 | Ref:+4 | Will:+7 | Init:+7 | Perc:+12 (Darkvision) | Spd 30/Fly 20]

Cora drops out of the sky like a stone, barely controlled as she reels from the drake's attack. Since she's only 10 feet off the ground right now I'm going to say she basically lets herself fall, so that should be like 'jumped down on purpose' for 1d6 nonlethal damage.

Bleeding and burned, Cora turns and shoots straight back up into the sky, right at the drake's now-exposed belly.

Bow+ST+DA+Point Blank Shot: 1d20 + 9 + 2 ⇒ (11) + 9 + 2 = 22
Arrow: 1d8 + 7 + 2 ⇒ (8) + 7 + 2 = 17


stats:

Machi-e spends a round summoning an air elemental, frowning.


Male Human Cleric of Abadar 4-variant bard| 28/28| AC 18, T 11, FF 17| F:+6, R:+3, W:+8, | Perp: +10 Init: +1| Channel 7/7

Rowane quickly pushes out another channel, selecting out the drake once more.

Channel positive: 2d6 ⇒ (2, 3) = 5


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Cora gets lucky!

Round 3 (ongoing):

Initiative order
Cora-acted
Machi-e-acted
Rowane-acted
Drake-acted
Nezos

Apparently startled by Cora's maneuver, the drake's jaws close on air. Her return attack damages it still more, and it follows the aasimar down and bites her again for 16 HP, + 4 HP fire damage. Its massive tail lashes out at Nezos, but despite his size he ducks under the blow.

Nezos is up!

Dice rolls:
Bite AoO: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (1) + 12 = 13
Bite vs. Cora: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (6) + 12 = 18
Bite damage: 2d6 + 7 + 1d6 ⇒ (6, 3) + 7 + (4) = 20

Tail slap vs. Nezos: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (4) + 6 = 10

Flame drake: AC 22 T 12 FF 19 HP: -57 HP


Male Half-Elf Fighter/Cleric 4 | HP 12/32 | AC 20/12/16 (23/13/16 CE) | F +6, R +4, W +3 (+1 vs. arcane, fear; +2 vs. enchantments) | CMB +7, CMD 19 | Init +2 | Perc +6 | Hand of the Acolyte 2/4 |
Conditions:

Now larger, Nezos can hit back at the drake. He hopes to make a big, if less defensible target for its ire.

AC is now 2 less than listed CE value.

Bastard Sword: 1d20 + 8 - 2 ⇒ (6) + 8 - 2 = 12
Damage: 2d8 + 6 ⇒ (4, 7) + 6 = 17


Female Aasimar (Plumekith) Inquisitor/Magus 4 [HP: 1/32 | AC: 18| T: 13| FF: 15| CMB:+5 | CMD:18 | Fort:+5 | Ref:+4 | Will:+7 | Init:+7 | Perc:+12 (Darkvision) | Spd 30/Fly 20]

Overwhelmed by the drake's fierce and fiery attacks, Cora slumps unconscious.

Channel puts her up at 14hp then the attack takes her down 20 to -6hp.

Stablize check, DC 10: 1d20 + 5 - 6 ⇒ (13) + 5 - 6 = 12 Pass! Cora is stable at -6.


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Round 4 (ongoing):

Initiative order
Cora-acted/down
Machi-e
Rowane
Drake
Nezos

Nezos' blade once again glances harmlessly off of the drake's armored body, while Cora's terrible wounds are cauterized by the heat from the drake's mouth.

Machi-e and Rowane are up!


Rise of the Runelords|Dragon's Demand| Giantslayer|Emerald Spire

Nezos, each square is ten feet, so you should only take up one.
