Fhingle Moves to the North behind Aldren. "We have to get them out of here, you're right though we cannot allow these people to keep this place and we will sacrifice any advantage we have by leaving. Maybe we can lock them in a room with some food." FHingle says quietly gripping his Heavy mace ready for anything to come and the boys to flee out of the room.
Lubella and Talvek ready their precise retaliation against any daring to enter.
Fhingle repositions himself in the outer room to support Aldren.
Suddenly, in a puff of smoke, just about in the same spot as he departed, a familiar red bearded, horned personage appears.
Hello, boys! Did you miss me?
He snears at Aldren holding his Glaive.
And I will be taking that back, insect!
=== Surprise Round (move or std action only) ===
22+ cultists( red) (orange) (green) (blue)
21+ Lubella(cats), Talvek()
16++ Elgadazum(-4 )
16- Arcos(), Aldren(), Sidius()
Aldren looked up at the devil appearing before him and quipped, "The muscles had me interested, but no pants and I still can't find your tadger. Is that what this is for?" He hefted the glaive suggestively. In truth, Aldren had a sinking feeling in his stomach. Not fully appreciating that Lubella and Talvek had their own problems, he hollered, "Kyda! Your friend is back!"
Clasping his holy symbol and drawing on his faith, he called out, "Calistria, show us your sting!"
Alignment Channel (Dmg Evil): 3d6 ⇒ (2, 4, 6) = 12 Only affects evil outsiders. DC 15 for half.
Alignment Channel -- Choose chaos, evil, good, or law. You can channel divine energy to affect outsiders that possess this subtype.
Prerequisites: Ability to channel energy.
Benefit: Instead of its normal effect, you can choose to have your ability to channel energy heal or harm outsiders of the chosen alignment subtype. You must make this choice each time you channel energy. If you choose to heal or harm creatures of the chosen alignment subtype, your channel energy has no effect on other creatures. The amount of damage healed or dealt and the DC to halve the damage is otherwise unchanged. (Emphasis added)
When picking up the glaive and given the talk of leaving, I had kind of envisioned Aldren stowing the crossbow, but I realize I didn't actually say that. As I did not say that, if necessary, I'll have him drop the crossbow as a free action.
Aldren would have had a full round or two to stow the crossbow while manacles were being unlocked. The glaive would not be easy to stow, so assuming in his hand(s).
The devil frowns at Aldren's comments and then squirms as the channel brings powers he is loath to appreciate.
You serve the wrong mistress! The Bee Queen has lost some of her sting.
will: 1d20 ⇒ 16 saves.
Is the Evil Eye hex still in effect?
Sidus steps away from the returning devil and quickly casts a spell to weaken it.
Ray of Enfeeblement (Ranged Touch): 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (11) + 4 = 15
Strength Penalty: 1d6 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 2 = 8 for 5 rounds, DC 16 Fort for half
This is round 7 since hex so it ended.
Sidius levels a ray at the devil...but the spell fizzles on contact.
CL: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (10) + 5 = 15 vs SR
Let me know if you have any feats or items to boost that. The touch attack probably misses anyway unless you have precise shot for shooting into combat.
Hey, nobody told me he had spell resistance! ;P Also, evil eye lasts 8 rounds - it's based on 3 + int modifier. Not that it helps with the spell resistance.
Wow, that's a high touch AC. Guess I was thinking of bigger, slower fiends. Was expecting something more like 13, and then -2. ;)
Note: I believe that Arcos does have Precise Shot. And Mystic Bolts are Supernatural, so no spell resistance.
The devil definitely seems more buff(ed) than you would normally expect for one of his ilk.
Arcos fires some of his own lightning at the fiends and scores a direct hit, causing a sizzle of red scales.
DO NOT HURT MY SACRIFICES! a woman voice shrieks.
Lubella then hears divine chanting from deeper within the chamber to the east. Both of the twins scream. Oh no! That's her. What do we do?
Red rushes into the room to try and claw Talvek, but he is ready for her and skewers the cultist as she approaches, but does not stop her.
On Talvek claw: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (12) + 3 = 15 for dmg: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3 miss
Behind her, Orange moves up
Flee! she commands Talvek.
Will Save vs Command
Blue and green scarfs advance and redouble themselves.
Save needed by Talvek, his readied triggered and init position updated. Lubella's readied not triggered(* See discussion), so her turn is up.
=== Round 1 ===
22+ cultists(-14 redS) (orangeS) (green 2x) (blue 2x)
16++ Elgadazum(-12, hex-2AC)
16- Arcos(), Aldren(), Sidius()
5+ Leader(casting? SP)
1+ Boys ()
Will save, re-roll boon: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (9) + 4 = 13
Inspiration, 6/6: 1d6 ⇒ 3
So that's a total of 16 on the Will save. Hope that's enough.
Unless the caster has a 22 casting stat, or a special bonus to enchantment spells, 16 should save against a 1st lvl spell.
Lubella called out, "Jackdaw, can you hold them off? I need to do something about that devil!
"Follow me, boys!"
She resumed her martial dance and re-engaged her infernal foe, who had retreated moments ago.
