Is there anyone I can see from my position? Otherwise Javier will fly upward, using the second round of the storm to avoid opportunity attacks if anyone is waiting for us outside, and see where the darkness ends / if he can do something about it.

Trapped in the midst of them, unable to see, and taking fire, he considers just fireballing the whole place, but that would likely harm, or even kill, innocents. Not quite what the RHC would call a good move.

So he delays.


Shot Putter Funkmeister

There is the one guy in you. You can make out Femi. You can fly up if you would like.

Ok Javier will fly upward and see if he can get out, unfortunately he has no way to see in magical darkness. He will bring the guy he has still in the whirlwind with him if he fails the save again, get a look at what exactly it is, maybe he can copy a trait from the would be assassin and gain the ability to see like he does...


Panoply HP 15/47; AC 15/14/11; Saves 4/5/7; Init +3; Perc +10; Sense Motive +2

Ahh, cool. If I can see someone...

Femi casts Magic Missile with Toppling Spell defensively.

those guys aood me in a fog cloud?


Shot Putter Funkmeister

The fog cloud had dissipated due to Javier turning into a Whirlwind. @Femi, attacking the one you can see will also do damage to Javier because he has him in his whirlwind. But Javier is tough.


Male Gnoll Troubadour 7 / Shifter 2 (Apex Shapeshifter) HP: 23/69+18, AC: 23/19/23, Saves: 11/12/7 I: 4, P: 12, Spell Points: 12/14

I have like 20 hp left... and ai am not sure if I will share damage with people in my whirlwind, I have no idea where it is explained, besides mqgic missiles never miss, but I have no idea if that would make it harder for them to damage me too


Panoply HP 15/47; AC 15/14/11; Saves 4/5/7; Init +3; Perc +10; Sense Motive +2

If Javier will be damaged, which seems weird, I do not launch missiles, and simply delay as before.

magic missiles dont miss enemies you can see. That's the whole point.


Shot Putter Funkmeister

I am not saying they would miss, but similar if you fired a magic missile through a window, the glass would break too. Since Javier is the wind the force would hit him as well.

I know the whirlwind blew the smoke away, but is the magic darkness also still in effect?


Shot Putter Funkmeister

If Javier goes up as he says he wants to and just drops the guy there won't be a problem


Tiefling map Armiger (Machinehead) 9/ Aristocrat 1 // AC 26/22/15 / HP 44/84 / F +10 R +11 W +9 / Init. +3 / Perc. +15 / Sense Motive +13

wind =/= glass. The whirlwind is a valid target of the spell, he is essentially grappling the actual target. magic missile doesnt hit other grapplers.


Shot Putter Funkmeister

Better analogy, you are eaten by a see through dinosaur, would the magic missile still miss the dinosaur? The whirlwind is a constantly moving entity at very high speeds...


Tiefling map Armiger (Machinehead) 9/ Aristocrat 1 // AC 26/22/15 / HP 44/84 / F +10 R +11 W +9 / Init. +3 / Perc. +15 / Sense Motive +13

a see through dinosaur, similar to a gelatinous cube, would give anything inside of it full cover, making it an invalid target of the spell. Nothing says the enemy is perfectly center and surrounded by the whirlwind, he may just be floating on top of buffeting winds or swirling around the outside of the tornado. Air, regardless of movement speed, doesn't prevent creatures within it from being targeted. At most, it would impose a penalty to ranged attack rolls, which Magic Missile does not require.

Magic Missile wrote:

The missile strikes unerringly, even if the target is in melee combat, so long as it has less than total cover or total concealment. Specific parts of a creature can’t be singled out. Objects are not damaged by the spell.[/qoute]


Shot Putter Funkmeister

Fair enough

Femi launches his magic missiles at the man in the whirlwind and kills him.

Javier flies upward as an air elemental and after 30 feet in the air he is finally out of the darkness. Whomever Rush was talking to has disappeared.

Rush full attacks Chretien from above 4 attacks 1d20 + 14 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 14 + 2 = 17 miss and 1d20 + 9 + 2 ⇒ (17) + 9 + 2 = 28 miss 1d20 + 14 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 14 + 2 = 22 miss 1d20 + 9 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 9 + 2 = 16 miss

Rush taunts, "Why are ducking like a turtle, Professor?"

Skulk 1 attacks Kort, flanking 1d20 + 7 + 2 ⇒ (13) + 7 + 2 = 22 hit 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 3 = 5 3d6 ⇒ (1, 5, 3) = 9

Skulk 2 attacks Kort 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (4) + 7 = 11 miss

Skulk 3 attacks Kort 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (10) + 7 = 17 miss

Skulk 4 attacks Rognar, flanking 1d20 + 7 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 7 + 2 = 12 miss

Skulk 5 attacks Brakken 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (10) + 7 = 17 miss
Skulk 6 attacks Brakken 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (16) + 7 = 23 hit 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 3 = 9

Skulk 7 moves to attack John, flat footed 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (3) + 7 = 10 miss

Brakken full attacks the Skulk to the north of him, quarterstaff and gore 1d100 ⇒ 82 ⇒ 66 success 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (17) + 8 = 25 hit 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9 , 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (3) + 3 = 6 miss and 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (4) + 3 = 7 miss killing one of the skulks.

Round 4

From outside the gate you hear, "Executora, the door is barred with this metal bar that won't move, what should we do?"

Glaucia says, "Men, let's try to break this open."

Everyone

Unprepared for an assault from the shadowy figure that moved next to him, John opted to employ one of his group effecting debilitating spells.

Dropping crushing despair towards the guy who attacked me. It's a DC 21 Will Save, and on a failed save they take a -2 penalty to all d20 rolls, as well as weapon damage rolls. It's a 30' cone that radiates out from John, so it might effect others.

Round 4
Total Defense stance: AC24 (FF20,T18)

Concerned at the damage he was taking from enemies all around, he listened for the locations of the enemies squares they were in.
Perception to locate enemy squares: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (17) + 12 = 29

Kortemir popped a different catalyst into a bomb shell, then curled up around it.

The bomb blew, covering Dr. Runemace in a phosphorescent healing glow that seeped into his body. He deliberately angled the blast to exempt all the squares around him that had enemies in them (up to five max).
The bomb deals 5d6 + 5 ⇒ (4, 6, 3, 3, 6) + 5 = 27 healing to him, and 10 points healing to those squares not exempted by his maneuver.

"The same reason you're attacking from darkness. If you'd prefer, you could dispense with that and I'd fight normally. But I assume you're smart enough to know that you'd die."

total defense again

What all the wall made of? I wonder if by turning into an earth elemental Javier can dig open one so that the executores can get in... Unfortunately whirlwind or not I don't think Javier can speak while turned into an elemental. Otherwise he would try to warn them of what wsa going on inside.

perception get an idea about where his enemies and friends are down in the dark: 1d20 + 12 + 1d6 ⇒ (7) + 12 + (6) = 25

If he can figure that out Javier will try to descend somewhere where he can get the most enemies and no allies\innocents in the whirlwind.

As a swift action Rognar will cast grace defensively which allows movement without aoo and he will move thirty feet away from the battle noises (since I cannot see) and as a standard action will summon the hound archon

John's crushing despair afflicts Rognar, Chretien, Kort all of the enemies but not Femi, Brakken or Javier.

John backs into the anteroom and away from the creature that hit him. I'll move far enough around the corner that it breaks LOS with him, which I am aware proves with me being flat footed.

If he follows me:

Now that he can see his target, John forced his gaze upon the man and used his staff to summon a pair of magic missiles. When they struck the man, John amplified the pain the man received several times.

Magic Missile from Staff w/Painful Strike: 2d4 + 3d6 + 8 ⇒ (4, 1) + (2, 3, 2) + 8 = 20

If he does not follow me:

John saw that his assailant had opted not to follow him and instead chose to stay in the darkness. John prepared to use his abilities to activate all of the pain centers in his brain at once, should he follow.

Readying to cast inflict pain on the first hostile target that moves towards me. DC 20 will save.

Either way, going to make a bluff check to hide my spellcasting.

Conceal Spell Bluff Check: 1d20 + 26 ⇒ (13) + 26 = 39

Round 5

Stop defensive stance.

As the Crushing Despair rolls over him Dr. Runemace's shoulders sagged. His head bowed, his voice sounded like he was standing at the bottom of a well.
"It is true. As it was written, so shall it be. The end times approach. Thine trust in enfolding darkness are as the hopes of all living things; in vain, as all they cherish crumble to dust in their hands as they die in all their numbers." He said as he worked an explosive catalyst into a bomb shell.
Perception (to locate enemy and friendly squares around him): 1d20 + 12 - 2 ⇒ (6) + 12 - 2 = 16
Then his head came up.
"BUT YOU SHALL BE FIRST. Fire in the hole." He said, tossing his bomb directly at the nearest enemy square with the most enemies around it that he can perceive.
BOOM!
explosive bomb (ranged touch attack): 1d20 + 9 + 1 - 2 ⇒ (8) + 9 + 1 - 2 = 16 (Standard act, provokes AoO within 5 ft.)
>A direct hit deals 5d6 + 5 ⇒ (2, 3, 4, 4, 3) + 5 = 21 fire damage and catch on fire. On fire, they take 1d6 points of fire damage each round until the fire is extinguished. (Extinguishing the flames is a full-round action that requires a Reflex save. Rolling on the ground provides the target with a +2 to the save. Dousing the target with at least 2 gallons of water automatically extinguishes the flames.)
>All squares within 10 feet (21 squares) will take 10 splash fire damage, except Doctor Runemace's and those squares (up to four others) that he knows his allies are standing in. (Precision bombs) Those caught in the splash damage can attempt a Reflex save for half damage. The Ref DC is 18.

Javier only has one last round of the whirlwind so he will keep that up he will also try to figure out if he could find a better spot to move to where he can catch more people and maybe bring some relief to an ally that is under attack. He will bring with him the guy who failed the save.

Perception again: 1d20 + 12 + 1d6 ⇒ (3) + 12 + (4) = 19
