Spoiler:

Nandipha’s Nature (T): 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (10) + 9 = 19

Baux, Scout: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (9) + 9 = 18
Biltri, Search: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (1) + 7 = 8
Dethor, Avoid Notice: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (2) + 10 = 12
Lucius Caligari, Investigate: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (20) + 10 = 30
Nandipha’s Perception (E): 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (3) + 11 = 14
Grimstone: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (4) + 12 = 16
Ooze if needed: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 2 = 14

Nandipha peeks her head over the edge and recognizes the statue as a gargoyle. They are very hard to spot when pretending to be statues, but by now it’s obvious this is no normal statue! Gargoyles resist all physical damage except adamantine. Resist 5

The statue snarls — frustrated — perhaps she had some other plan to ambush your party.

You Have Solved the Gargoyle Puzzle

Climbing a ladder; you can auto-make the check without rolling because it's… a ladder, but you only move 5’ per 20' of movement you normally have (which is all of you, basically). You would need to make a DC 20 Athletics to move more than that (10') as a crit success but risk falling. Both hands are occupied while you climb unless you have Combat Climber or some other class feature.

Those on the ladder probably do not have weapons drawn. Those on the ground can and do! However, those on the ground don't have line of sight yet to the creature yet, but you know trouble's on the way!

Lucius moves to the ladder and begins climbing up.

The gargoyle grins and looks at the top of the ladder, resting on the edge of the roof.

She flies over, grips the top rung with a taloned foot, and shoves — attempting to push it off the wall… and Nandipha and Lucius with it! We'll call this a 2-action Activity and set the DC vs the highest DC of the characters on the ladder, with a +2 circumstance bonus… which is Nandipha at 18+2=20.

Shove: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (18) + 9 = 27

The ladder moves back into the air… wobbles vertically for a moment… and begins falling backward…the gargoye admires her handiwork. heh…

Nandipha, you can make a DC 20 Reflex to Grab an edge if you want. Lucius, I don’t think there’s an edge for you to grab!

If you fail, you take 7 bludgeoning damage and land prone. Lucius, you take 5 damage and are prone.

Dethor seems fine with where he is. He takes out his short bow and readies a shot if he sees anything.

Nandipha manages to grab the edge and haul herself up before blasting the gargoyle! The creature looks totally surprised at Nandipha’s epic moves.

Dethor drops in a sneak attack from hiding, but not all the damage goes through. a 27 does not crit flat-footed. Biltri grabs the ladder, anticipating the need for an easier way up. Unless it starts raining dwarves…

Morgrym ain't worth it!

She flies off as fast as she can. 40' fly gets her 120 feet away. She will dive into the forest for cover against any potshots — which the people on the roof can take. Up to you if you want to do so.

Otherwise, out of combat.

"Good riddance." Lucius stows his crossbow and draws the Devil's Lantern again.

"Let's meet this Morgrym."

"Thank you, Baux. Yes, please." She grimaces at the slash the Gargoyle gave her. "That gargoyle cut near to the bone, I think."

She glances around the roof. Did the gargoyle leave behind anything interesting?

Once she and Baux are back on the ground, Nandipha nods to Lucius. "I agree. This Morgrym be nothing but trouble. You might want to draw Grandma's sword, so we have stories to tell."

There is no treasure baking in the sun on the rooftop. Now you move into the keep.

Biltri pushes the door open with an ominous creak.

A drafty and dark open space stretches twenty feet up to the roof above. The wall has only a few narrow windows that remain closed with thick wooden shutters. A set of stone stairs leads partway up one wall to a broken platform that has three unfurled bedrolls.

To your right, a pentagram is carved into the floor. Stubby candles stand at each of the pentagram’s points; the stone floor nearby appears blackened as though from great heat.

To your left is a long stone table with an array of equipment and two rotting human corpses. Each is flayed open from head to toe with the internal organs removed, exposing bone. A dwarf in wizard’s robes works at that table… he seems totally immersed in his work. He mutters as the door opens.

Hagrit, quit all that racket, I… He grins. Well well… HELLO.

Caressing an exposed skull with his scalpel, he whispers: Protect your master, my children. The bones inside the flayed-opened corpses quiver, tearing away from muscle and fat as the skeletons begin to separate from the flesh of their bodies.

You may now understand why the body (of the cook?) was being preserved outside.

Baux, the remaining skeleton is gone. Only the living caster is left. Sorry if that wasn't clear. You can redo your turn.

Biltri’s string of bad luck returns… his beard melts a bit…

The necromancer chuckles at Dethor's stumble. He thickens the barrier of energy, blocking some of Dethor’s damage. Shield block for 5.

Nandipha moves into the room, climbs on to the table, and then attempts to whack the Necromancer with her tail!

Baux expands the aura while Lucius gets a stab in!

Nandipha I think you forget Bless, which means you hit with a 19. An 18 would miss. I moved your PC onto the table.

Morgrym smiles at Dethor, showing off his jagged, rotting black teeth. He says something nasty in dwarven — it’s vile enough that even Dethor is a little shaken. Demoralize success; Frightened 1

I have been promised glorious undeath. You will learn fear! He points at his demoralized foe. Run away into the shadows where you belong, you skulker! Wait your for turn to die!

Command: Flee DC 21 will save.

Baux grabs some of the chalk that the necromancy left laying around after drawing his summoning circle and crushes it. He then applies it to the acid still sizzling on Biltri.

Hey, there is a drawing of a magic circle, had to draw it with something right?

I will leave it up to the GM if this is acceptable or not. It isn’t like they define how exactly to take care of every sort of persistent damage.
If the expanded healer’s kit would have something for this, that works too.

Works for me: interact to grab chalk on the ground, 2-actions to crush into the wound.

I’ll fix the stat block here while I’m at it. I got Biltri’s persistent wrong too. Almost like I was really tired last night.
