LN Male Human (Versatile) Barbarian (1)| HP 22/22 | AC 17 | F +7 R +4 W +6 | Perc +6 | Stealth -1 | speed 20ft| Active Conditions: None

Dave moves as quietly as he can.

stealth: 1d20 - 1 ⇒ (19) - 1 = 18

He then puts his shoulder under part of the statue and lifts with his legs Spine health is important

Dave is carrying 5.5 bulk and is encumbered at 9, so he'll take on 3 bulk of the statue

What people are doing to bypass this trap:

Dargon: ?
Jorgan: ?
Medium Dave: Carrying 3 bulk, stealth check made.
Skorpa: Carrying 6 bulk, stealth check made.
Mandower: Carrying statue (10 bulk). Needs to make stealth check.
Veyanna: Concentrating on a spell in Dorm A.

I'll bot stealth checks for anyone who hasn't posted by tomorrow morning.

I'm looking as I currently have 6 Bulk 4 L on my person. Encumbered at 7 and max at 12 Bulk. I could assist with 5 L of the statue. :-P

Stealth(Trained): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (7) + 7 = 14

While he knows he's not the strongest, the dwarf slides into the room to do his part. 'E'er liddle bit 'elps.'

Dargon can carry 10 bulk.

stealth: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (16) + 1 = 17

As the melee types move the statue, some of the creatures move towards the source of the noise. However, due to Veyanna's distraction you make it out of the room safely!

Wow you guys actually did it. That was close! Good work! Everyone can have one hero point! You should all have two by now.

It's a 10-minute walk to the cart, so you may want to complete your investigations here before returning the statue.

It looks like there are some areas left to investigate. You're getting close though, so let me know when you want to leave.

You decide to abandon the investigation and head back.

Mandower and Dave lead the way, grunting under the weight of the statue — they suddenly halt at the bottom of the stairs and quickly put the statue down.

There is a man clad in dark robes waiting in the middle of the main hall; he's wearing a black scarf around his neck and black robes. He's accompanied by two skeletal beings whose eyes glow with the pale light of distant, dying stars.

The strange man laughs maniacally in a high-pitched voice. HAHAHAH— it's cut short as he gasps for breath. Found you! Found you! No more hide and seek, little ones! Time join the Whispering Tyrant!

Larraz, the fellow Pathfinder, has followed behind your group; he stands tall and whispers: I'll help.

Slide 1 updated. For the sake of simplicity, I'll say you put the statue down while he was talking but as such have not drawn weapons yet.

Dave moves up to the first skeleton, drawing his club as he goes. His eyes go wide as he enters a rage then he swings at the skeleton attempting to knock the lower vertebra out and crumble the skeleton.

Greatclub: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (6) + 7 = 13 Damage: 1d10 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 4 + 2 = 12

-1 AC, +3 Temporary Hit Points


The Fall of the Plaguestone & Casefiles of G'nak | Spell Templates

Sudden charge? Remember, fatigued also gives you -1 AC.

Medium Dave swings furiously, but misses by a wide margin! He sees that the skeleton is wearing chain mail, in addition to the shield.

Attacks:
Attack 1: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (6) + 10 = 16
Longsword, Piercing: 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9

Guarded step, Strike, Raise shield

One hit against AC 15=9 damage

The skeleton steps carefully towards the barbarian. Its teeth chatter with pleasure as its longsword pierces deeply into Dave's flesh. It then raises its shield.

Veyanna looks the... rather strange gentleman up and down once, then purses her lips as she lets out a breath of air. "I do not wish to join your tyrant. Because he is a tyrant. Take your 'friends' and go." To punctuate her words she steps around the corner and holds her hand out in the direction of the crazy man and a high pressure blast of water shoots from her palm towards the Necromancer's head.

One action to move to my new location, and two actions to cast Hydraulic Push! With a hero point! If it lands he gets pushed back by 5 ft.

Hydraulic Push: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (6) + 7 = 13
Hydraulic Push: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (18) + 7 = 25 Using my Hero Point!
Damage: 3d6 ⇒ (2, 2, 2) = 6


The Fall of the Plaguestone & Casefiles of G'nak | Spell Templates

Not enough for a critical.

The necromancer slides backwards, spluttering in fury as he stumbles around the pillar!

He incants an arcane word in a strange language whose consonants sound like corpse-flies droning; his fingers move back and forth making profane signs. The space around him begins to shimmer with an insidious aura.

He then coughs another phrase in that same foul language, touching his chest above his own heart as he does so. As the spell causes his flesh to turn cadaver-grey, his grin becomes even more euphoric. Use verbal and somatic components, use verbal component.

If you move adjacent to the necromancer I please make will save. Roll it first, before your attacks.

Jorgan draws his loaded heavy crossbow and moves into the entrance hall, positioning himself on the first steps of spiral staircase in order to get a view of the battlefield without cover. Draw weapon, Stride, Stride. Seems reasonable that the ranged character would try to place themselves in a high-ground location without cover.


The Fall of the Plaguestone & Casefiles of G'nak | Spell Templates

Larraz moves into the room. He channels positive energy at Medium Dave. I won't let another Pathfinder die!

2-action Heal: 1d8 + 8 ⇒ (7) + 8 = 15 Dave is back at full!

----

Well… skeleton 1 has only one target.

GM Rolls:

Attack 1, Longsword: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (20) + 10 = 30
Attack 1, P: 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (7) + 4 = 11 doubled to 22

Critical hit on natural 20; 22 damage. Since M. Dave is Fatigued and therefore cannot Rage, he has no temp HP. This Strike takes him from full health (22) to exactly 0 HP.

The skeleton plunges its longsword three-quarters of the way into Medium Dave's chest — as the big man's vision fades away, he sees a fleshless grin looming above.

The skeleton then steps forward, bright blood dripping from its blade. It raises its shield. Strike, Guarded Step, Raise Shield

Larraz, traumatized at seeing yet another Pathfinder fall to the undead, jibbers in terror. The necromancer grins: A new recruit! And this one's so… BIG!

The skeleton attacks the raging dwarf barbarian twice.

Attacks:

VS AC 13
Attack 1, Longsword: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (16) + 10 = 26
Attack 2, Longsword: 1d20 + 10 - 5 ⇒ (15) + 10 - 5 = 20

Attack 1, S: 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7 doubled to 14
Attack 2, P: 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6

Hot GM dice…

It slashes into Mandower's shoulder, cutting deeply into his muscle. It then follows through, stabbing him in the side. 1 crit, 1 hit vs AC 13. Rocked by these blows, the dwarf nevertheless stands strong! The skeleton instinctively raises its shield when it sees that Mandower still stands.

Veyanna watches with some dismay that despite Larraz's best efforts the skeletons keep putting Medium Dave down onto the floor rather brutally. She sucks in her breath and glances to their new 'recruit' to the team. "Get a hold of yourself and get Medium Dave back together. We aren't done yet."

She then turns her attention on the Necromancer and mocks his expression with a little quirk of her own lips. "You over estimate your position, wet one. Stay quiet." She points her hand at the emo looking fool again and a much more intense blast of water bursts from her fingers with enough force to slam him into the wall.

Then she shapes a few droplets from her fingers and pulls a scroll from her waist.

Two actions to cast Hydraulic Push again. WHICH CRITS. Damage is below and he's knocked back 10ft instead of 5. Last action to draw my scroll of heal.

Hydraulic Push: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15
Second Hero Point: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (20) + 7 = 27

Hydraulic Push Crit Damage: 6d6 ⇒ (4, 4, 2, 5, 2, 5) = 22


The Fall of the Plaguestone & Casefiles of G'nak | Spell Templates

The necromancer's insane laughter continues as he stumbles backwards.

He looks hatefully into Veyanna's eyes as he slams into the wall… he begins to cast a spell, and then slides slowly to the floor, dead — the grin still plastered on his face. That was really close — your crit almost didn't take him down! Epic!

Mandower attacks three times and the one that attacked him and crit will die first hit: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (10) + 7 = 17 dmg: 1d10 + 6 ⇒ (10) + 6 = 16 If that kills that one, then the warflail will gain the sweep property, so +1 to attack to hit the other guy
hit: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6 dmg: 1d10 + 6 ⇒ (9) + 6 = 15
So I can spend a hero point to reroll any check? 2nd hit: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (8) + 2 = 10
third attack: -3 + 1d20 ⇒ -3 + (15) = 12


The Fall of the Plaguestone & Casefiles of G'nak | Spell Templates

Yep! You can use hero points to reroll an attack roll.

Mandower cannot seem to land a hit on the well-armored skeleton.

Attack2: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (19) + 7 = 26(damage): 1d12 + 4 ⇒ (7) + 4 = 11


The Fall of the Plaguestone & Casefiles of G'nak | Spell Templates

Dargon that's a 21 to hit, the second attack is at -5. Still hits.

One of you finally makes contact with a skeleton! However, the results are not quite what you hoped for.

The skeleton reacts to the strike by using its shield to knock away much of the greataxe's inertia. When the greataxe finally does strike the creature, the slashing weapon does little damage to its tough bone. Shield Block and resistance to slashing damage

Taking aim at the bony creature, he glances towards the fallen comrade. 'Dat no kin be gud'

Realizing the best thing he can do is finish off these creatures quickly, he studies them closely.

Raising the bow, he takes aim and lets the bolt fly. Quickly pulling back the strings, he prepares to drop another bolt in.

Jorgran's shots fly wide.

Larraz looks at the corpse of the grining necromancer and stands up taller. We can do this!

He clutches a piece of holly in one hand and makes gestures with the other, chanting in a language none of you know. Green-hued energy splashes out, pushing back the shadows as it heals everyone. Dave wakes up… but still sees that grin looming above. Mandower's wounds knit.

3-action Heal: 1d8 ⇒ 7

One of the skeletons shudder in the sudden light of Spring. The other is unaffected. Larraz shouts: That was my last one! Destroy these things — fast!

Greatclub, fatigued: 1d20 + 7 - 1 ⇒ (7) + 7 - 1 = 13 Damage, fatigued: 1d10 + 4 - 1 ⇒ (7) + 4 - 1 = 10

Dave, still woozy from his ordeal, is seeing double — he cannot connect.

He notices that Skeleton 2 looks at him with its longsword raised as he stands up — luckily for him, it deigns to keep on the defensive… for now. Hint: these things seem to have the Attack of Opportunity reaction too.

Skeleton 1 steps towards the person who just channeled positive energy…

GM screen:
Longsword, attack 1: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (18) + 10 = 28 That's another crit.
Longsword, attack 2: 1d20 + 10 - 5 ⇒ (4) + 10 - 5 = 9
damage: 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (7) + 4 = 11 doubled to 22.

It swings twice — first stabbing its longsword deeply into the left side of Larraz's chest, then swinging at Veyanna. It misses the elf.

Larraz screams — no doubt remembering his friends' traumatic deaths — as he watches blood gush from his wounded chest. Somehow, he manages to remain standing. Guarded Step, Strike, Strike

Skorpa studies the skeleton. He moves around to flank it and strikes with both his weapons.

Longsword, Strike 1: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (15) + 6 = 21

Hatchet Damage, Slicing : 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 3 = 9

damage is combined for overcoming slashing resistance

This time the skeleton takes an attack of opportunity.

GM screen:
Longsword, AOO: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (18) + 10 = 28 GM Dice are hot…
1d8 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6

Crit vs AC 18 for 12 damage

Its longsword slashes deeply into Skorpa's neck — bright blood spills onto the tile as the ranger stumbles into a better ideal position.

With the flank, Skorpa strikes true twice — the combined strikes crack bone, but the skeleton remains upright. 15 damage

GM screen:

Attack One: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (3) + 10 = 13 GM dice are cold…
1d20 ⇒ 1

The creature takes a guarded step towards Skorpa then lashes out once — failing to connect, possibly due to the damage it just took — and raises its shield. Step, Strike, Raise shield

Veyanna had wanted to use her scroll to heal the entirety of the group, but not with this frightfully effective skeletons standing so close to her. Instead she opts to take a careful step backwards, putting some distance between herself and the threat. Then takes it further by putting a large puddle of grease on the ground between them and beneath the skeleton. "I cannot fix what they're doing to you all if you let this one chase me about."

1 action to take a guarded step, the other two to cast grease on the red squares. One is beneath Skeleton #1. DC 17 Reflex or Acrobatics, failure means falling prone.


The Fall of the Plaguestone & Casefiles of G'nak | Spell Templates

So, is the area under Larraz greased too? The area of Grease is "4 contiguous 5-foot squares" but only 3 are marked on the map.

GM Screen:
Reflex: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (16) + 10 = 26
Reflex, Larraz if needed: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (19) + 5 = 24

The skeleton remains standing in the grease.

Quickly dropping a bolt into the crossbow, Jorgran sights in the skeleton again. 'Dis not go'n gud fer us.'

Pulling back the trigger, he hopes...prays for success. His frown deeping, he draws the bow back again.

Dargon still cannot seem to connect.

Larraz takes a Step back and chants in a strange language, clutching his sprig. Green-white energy lances into Skeleton one, turning some of its bones to ash.

Basic fortitude: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (2) + 7 = 9

Botting Medium Dave.

Medium Dave delays. Free action to drop out of initiative.

Skeleton 1 steps out of the grease and stabs the healer.

GM Screen:
Attack 1, Longsword vs Larraz: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (17) + 10 = 27
piercing: 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9 doubled to 18
Attack 2, Longsword vs Mandower: 1d20 + 10 - 5 ⇒ (7) + 10 - 5 = 12

Its longsword plunges efficiently into Larraz’s neck. The Pathfinder drops his sprig of holly; he looks pleadingly at you before slumping to the floor. Crit vs AC 16; Larraz is dying 2.

It then chops at Mandower, but misses.

Skorpa takes another swing with both weapons and follows up with two more strikes of his axe.
Twin Takedown, Strike, Strike

Twin Takedown
Longsword, Strike 1: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (15) + 6 = 21
Longsword Damage, Slicing : 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 3 = 9
Hatchet, Strike 2: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (16) + 4 = 20
Hatchet Damage, Slicing : 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (4) + 3 = 7
Damage from these two combined

Hatchet, Strike 3: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (8) + 2 = 10
Hatchet Damage, Slicing: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (1) + 3 = 4

Hatchet, Strike 2: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (17) + 2 = 19
Hatchet Damage, Slicing: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (5) + 3 = 8

Skorpa hits on the first twin takedown but not the second. The skeleton raises its shield to block, reducing the damage it takes. Its bones are also resistant to piercing and slashing damage.

GM Screen:
attack 1, longsword: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (19) + 10 = 29 this is getting ridiculous.
1d8 + 4 ⇒ (1) + 4 = 5 doubled to 10
attack 2, longsword: 1d20 + 10 - 5 ⇒ (3) + 10 - 5 = 8

The skeleton returns the blow in kind, cutting Skorpa down with yet another critical hit before missing Dave with a second strike. It then steps toward the big man, for some reason opting not to raise its shield.

The skeleton's last mistake was not raising its shield, allowing Mandower to connect! Its skull rolls across the floor. The barbarian doesn't come close to connecting with the other skeleton, however.
