Once you enter the room, bumps in the webbing quiver, then rip themselves free, revealing 6 fiendish mites!

Reminder to the Fool - you've got the False Flanker trick implanted in you, which gives you an (illusory) flank buddy for one round once triggered.

Fizzlebottom waits to see whether the High Fool is able to dispatch the fellow blocking the entry way.

Right. I've been saving it for just such an occasion!

The colorful man steps further into the room and touches his brow. A copy of him appears on the mite's other side, and both of them stab in tandem with their rapiers (one much more real than the other).

Rapier + flank vs flat-footed: 1d20 + 8 + 2 ⇒ (17) + 8 + 2 = 27
Damage: 1d6 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6

Aw, so close to a crit.

Miri steps, and leans around a corner as she aims her bow.

Longbow attack on Orange! There's lots of cover.: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (7) + 8 = 15
Longbow damage: 1d8 + 2 ⇒ (7) + 2 = 9

Fizzlebottom moves into the room (Is it difficult terrain? I moved assuming it isn't so would have to move back 2 squares if it is.) and gives Red a beguiling look (swift action: hypnotic stare) before shooting him with his crossbow.

Not small sized ones...

Dusty steps up behind Fizzlebottom, using his elevation and his companion's stature to cleanly shoot over the gnome's head.

Dusty continues to harry the back line, sending another bolt flying at the mites as they round the corner.

@ blue
'Betsy' (PBS): 1d20 + 8 + 1 ⇒ (8) + 8 + 1 = 17
Cold Iron Piercing: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3

I figure yellow's in PBS range for Miri, and in easy stabbing range for the Fool so...

Fizzlebottom steps back 5', fixes his stare on Yellow, and sends a blast of colors towards him.

Color Spray DC 16 Will negates; -2 on Will saves from hypnotic stare

Miri runs forward Technically, just a move action and squeezes between Dusty and Fizz. "Oop, pardon!"

If Yellow is still with it after getting color sprayed, it will get an AoO from this movement and (in the unlikely event it actually has combat reflexes) a second AoO from the arrow shot.

She sets her feet just long enough to get a semi-accurate shot against a mite! Against Pink, since Dusty's attacking Blue.

Longbow, point-blank: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (20) + 9 = 29
Cold iron arrow, point-blank: 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 3 = 5

The yellow mite miracurously shrugs off the color spray and stabs ineffectively at Miri.

dagger: 1d20 ⇒ 12 for piercing: 1d3 - 1 ⇒ (3) - 1 = 2

Meanwhile, Miri obliterates one mite and Dusty severely wounds another.

Miri kicks ineffectually at the mite. No action, just flavor

No cold iron here.

The colorful man leaps from one mite to the next. His double quickly winks out of existence.

Rapier vs yellow: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (17) + 8 = 25
Damage: 1d6 + 4 ⇒ (6) + 4 = 10


Tears + Plaguestone + Mosquito Witch

With a skillful stab, the motley character skewers the mite. Then, the final demonic critter keels over as it runs at the group.

Just as it seems peace might break out, a door squeals open in the southwest corner of the room.

A shifty and stooped man shuffles out the door, followed immediately by a slime-coated demon.

“So, the heroes have arrived. Try not to make a mess when you die—I have great plans for your remains.”

"Oh, don't worry sir," the colorful man responds as he moves to intercept the newcomers, sword at the ready. "It is my highest goal to die quite cleanly."

Readied action (rapier stab): 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (13) + 8 = 21

Fizzlebottom steps forward, stares at the old man, and attempts to daze him. Hypnotic stare gives -2 on Will saves

Daze spell. DC 16 Will negates. Only works if he is a humanoid of 4 HD or less.

Bah, that should be Knowledge (planes) in the spoiler.

Fizzlebottom's stare takes hold, but his spell has no effect on the villain.

Miri stares at the thing. Knowledge (planes): trained, even!: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (17) + 1 = 18

Miri's okay with that change! How about DR? She would probably care about that.

"Hey! You, associating with demons! Who are you?!"

At this level, Miri's got one trick, but at least it's a decent trick.

Longbow attack, rapid shot, point-blank, at red (the dretch): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (5) + 7 = 12
Longbow attack, rapid shot, point-blank, at red (the dretch): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (9) + 7 = 16

"Y'know I've heard a lot of plans for what amounts to a dusty pile o' skin in my time. Ain't never had a smug sumb!%!* like you manage to collect it though."

Dusty adds to Miri's fusilade with a grazing shot to the dretch's shoulder.

The dretch scoops a lump of demon bile off of itself and throws it at Miri, attempting to make her drop her bow. It then steps in front of its boss.

It looks like she takes full from the Mass Inflict, but probably gets to hold onto her bow. Assuming that's the case...

Maybe that dretch isn't the big threat here! Miri changes targets.

Will: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (17) + 4 = 21

Dusty grits his teeth and powers through the dark energy coursing through him. Trusting to Fizzlebottom to keep the old man's magic in check, he continues to harry the demon, sighting in to avoid any thick, blubbery skin.

Tears + Plaguestone + Mosquito Witch

The old man is surprsingly resistant to the damage from the High Fool's rapier, but Dusty's crack shot takes it right through the throat. In a spurt of ichor, the man's skin starts to peel back from the wound.

The wound gapes wider and wider, and eventually the old man's skin sloughs to the ground like an old, droopy sock, revealing a gigantic worm-like creature inside his body!

Knowledge (planes):
It's a vermlek demon! Gross!

The gigantic worm quivers and hits the ground; it looks unconcious.

No parries, I'll hold onto my last point for now.

Rapier: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (3) + 8 = 11
Damage: 1d6 + 4 ⇒ (6) + 4 = 10


Tears + Plaguestone + Mosquito Witch

With your flurry of attacks, you kill the dretch which disappears with a squelching *pop* when it falls.

The corpse that had been worn by the vermlek demon carries a masterwork rapier. Examining the body, you find a battered and somewhat gooey journal. It reveals that the corpse once belonged to a man named Marcuccio Bravoni, a merchant who owned a warehouse in Sarini's Hollow. Bravoni has several notes about hearing strange noises in his warehouse, and the last entry states that he's going to ge tto the bottom of "that slithering." The merchant’s journal also mention that he saw a strange goblin scouting the town at night.

The remaining room in the basement looks to be a records room. Papers are scattered on the tables within, and the walls are lined with shelves and cabinets filled with books.

On one table, you find drawings and diagrams of some sort of portal, showing a vermlek stepping through what looks very much like the sacrificial pit in the adjacent room. The maps are accompanied by notes in a strange, spidery language.

You also find a rough map of Saringallow with arrows and drawings of mites scribbled on it.

There are six cabinets full of records in the room, all neatly labeled.

Was the warehouse in part 1 the Bravoni warehouse?

Fizzlebottom tries to make some sense of the strange notes.

Linguistics, Guidance: 1d20 + 4 + 1 ⇒ (16) + 4 + 1 = 21

He'll also scan the room with Detect Magic and Detect Psychic Significance.

Finally, he'll look to see the labels on the cabinets. "It seems odd that these are so nicely kept amidst all this chaos."

Dusty picks through some of the records, hoping some of it is written in Taldane. "This seems like it might be the kinda records and journals we're supposed to be rootin' around for. When we're not taking part in freelance demon-hunting that is."

Miri sifts through stacks and stacks of papers she can't hope to comprehend. "This looks... formidable. Should we just take it all with us?"

Linguistics is somehow trained, because Miri is silly: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (14) + 1 = 15


Tears + Plaguestone + Mosquito Witch

You get the general idea from the notes that the demon was trying to open a portal to the Abyss to bring more vermleks through.

It was the warehouse from part 1, yes.

The records are exactly the ones that you were searching for. Just as you finish searching for them, the manor houses starts creaking ominously. As you pick up the last book, a large chunk of plaster falls from the ceiling onto one of the tables. Small tremors ripple throughout the basement.

So, the house is collapsing, and you need to escape! (This is sort of like a chase, but you make progress every round regardless of your check--you just take damage if you fail! Also, you can be fully healed when we start.) I'm going to be as transparent about this as I can, since I think mechanics like this can be a little frustrating during PBP.

Rules for this Collapse! wrote:

The encounter consists of five obstacles the PCs must overcome, as detailed in the paragraphs below. To overcome an obstacle, each PC must first choose one of two strategies, each of which requires a successful saving throw, ability check, or skill check. Any PC who has chosen the same check type as another PC can voluntarily take a –2 penalty on her check to give a +2 bonus on the other PC’s check. Multiple PCs can help the same character.

Regardless of the check results, each PC proceeds to the next obstacle, but any PCs who failed the check take 1d3 points of damage each. In between navigating the obstacles, it is possible to quickly quaff a potion, cast a single spell, or use an ability that takes no more than a full-round action to function. A PC can drag an ally who falls unconscious through these obstacles, but that PC takes a –4 penalty on checks and saving throws while doing so. This penalty is only –2 if two PCs drag a single unconscious ally.

Obstacle 1: Falling Cabinets A powerful tremor shakes the basement, causing cabinets to topple. (1) To dodge them, a PC must succeed at a DC 10 Reflex save. OR (2) To prop them up, a PC must succeed at a DC 12 Strength check.
