Iron Gods: Iron maps;

With the robot harvester dismantled by Yambul's devastating strikes and the wind wall, skillfully contained by Rhoreen, the focus of the party becomes Furkas' ghost.

Rūha, having analyzed the situation, offers valuable insights regarding the best approach against the spectral foe. As she speaks, Chaance, recovering from the effects of the lingering gas, lines up another shot with Elk Father's bow. However, the attack misses its mark, the arrow finding no purchase on the elusive ghost.

The ghostly presence of Furkas Xoud hovers, seemingly unperturbed by the commotion "You might have destroyed my harvester, but your struggles only delay the inevitable. Prepare yourselves for the final confrontation" he warns, his voice echoing with otherworldly menace and as he does, he steps away from Rūha and casts another spell with no visible effect.
But you stumble with a transparent wall if you try to cross the cyan line in the map, and you do not have line of effect (but you have line of sight).

K. arcana DC 25 or Spellcraft DC 20:

He cast wall of force.
---

Simultaneously, the ghostly figure activates a spectral miasma, enveloping him in an obscuring mist that resembles smoke, fully concealing his figure and sapping energy from Yambul and Rūha.
Negative energy damage (no save): 2d6 ⇒ (4, 6) = 10
Also provides concealment as obscuring mist

Once again, he swings his rod, trying to disarm Yambul, apparently non disturbed by the smoke around himself.
Disarm attempt CMD 27 (move action): 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (9) + 16 = 25
And once again, the Kellid keeps the chainsaw well grasped.

"Careful now. Furkas has set up a Wall of Force, if I understand his casting correctly." Chaance steps forward, arm extended, and finds the barrier. "Here. It appears Furkas means to finish Yambul and Rūha first."

"No blade strong enough to damage that." She regards Furkas through the wall. She waits, and watches.

Yambul does not like all this miasma - especially if it doesn’t affect Xoud. Nope. Not fair at all. He moves smoothly up to Xoud, taking the long way around to avoid an AoO and setting up a flank with Rüha for later.

I can never remember if incorporeals can be flanked. Can they be flanked, and can they take precision damage? If not -2 to hit and -3d6 damage.

Yambul readies an attack once flank is achieved.

Ruha steps up, firing with her autograpnel at point-blank range once she can see Xoud's outline. She ends up on the opposite side from Yambul, ready to distract.

She doesn't like the feel of the mist one bit, but figures the rest of the group will have some means of scattering it where she does not.

”Ah great…a big annoying invisible wall,” Rhoreen grouses, wondering how the ghost could get even more annoying. ”He’s probably just afraid of me.”

”No matter,” Rhoreen puns herself into a giggle. ”NO MATTER. HA!” She chortles and looks over at the ghost. She moves between Chaance and Zzvkgrogk and casts [/i]Dimension Door[/i] to the other side of the room.

”Not that it *matters*, but you’re welcome,” she says to both.

The android knows little of the half elf's casting, but she is glad the Wall has been rendered moot. "Yes, thank you for that. We are much more effective on this side."

Presuming an attack is still available this round...

"That's almost exactly what I was thinking. He's more afraid of us. 'Furkass Xoud -- the robutthead cowardly ghost'."

"Wheee!" he exclaims traveling through the dimension door. "Thanks, Calliope! Together we are no match!"

He blasts away with his laser pistol, the first shot being much brighter than the shots that follow.

Iron Gods: Iron maps;

Rhoreen carries the back-line team past the wall of force and into a safety space.

Zzvkgrogk and Chaance shot into the mist, following the sounds of battle, and hopping not to injury Yambul or Rūha.
Chaance: Total concealment: 1d100 ⇒ 73
Zzvkgrogk: Total concealment: 1d100 ⇒ 97
Zzvkgrogk: Total concealment: 1d100 ⇒ 99
Zzvkgrogk: Total concealment: 1d100 ⇒ 83
All the shots are well directed, but only one of Zzvkgrogk's beams hits on target, and the incorporeal is immune to criticals and resistant to fire.

Furkas floats back concentrating on his magic to cast defensively.

Once again, he swings his rod, trying to disarm Yambul.

Chaance can't continue like this. The total obscuration, the shuffling of kasatha and human feet the only indications of where a smoky ghost hovers nearby. She takes to the mist, and sees her way through the unseen, until she manages to find Furkas. Or at least what she gathers is the ghost of Xoud in the room.

The android reaches a hand out, and tries to touch the ghost. "From one ghost to another, Furkas. Aldronard sends his regards, as does Sarenrae."

”Maybe,” Rhoreen shrugs. ”But he might have the ability to fart like this more than once a day, so not sure it would be valuable to try.” Let alone the ghost could just move out of any wind cell and do it again. It truly is a miserable ability that I’m unsure on the best solution. Rhoreen is happy to hand you the wand if you want to try.

Actually, regardless of which way the wind is blowing, Zzvkgrogk will try and sneak up on Furkas.


Iron Gods: Iron maps;

Rhoreen is deafened by the ghostly shout, so she no longer hears what others say, while the others endure.
Zzvkgrogk, I think you missed the need for a save here

Yambul, feeling the effects of the draining fog, steps back cautiously, preparing his falchion and a potion bottle.

Chaance, determined to pierce through the miasma, navigates the foggy haze and attempts to touch the elusive ghost. Her hand passes through the ethereal figure, delivering a healing touch as she invokes names from a recent past.
Will DC 15?: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (14) + 11 = 25
Aldronard and Sarenrae's blessings flow through her, the positive energy harming the ghost despite its partial resistance.

Rūha, strategizing in the midst of the spectral confusion, delivers an inspiring word to Chaance and distracts Furkas a bit.

Meanwhile, Rhoreen, reacting to the discomfort caused by the miasma, decides to wield the wand of wind wall once more. She attempts to disperse the spectral mist, creating a protective barrier that surrounds the miasma point of origin and starts blowing it away.

As Rhoreen channels the power of the wind wall, Zzvkgrogk, in an act of stealth, quaffs an extract and disappears from sight. He moves strategically to position himself behind the ghost, aiming to take advantage of the opportunity to strike.

As the battle intensifies, Furkas Xoud seizes the opportunity amidst the chaos. With a menacing glint in his spectral eyes, he extends a hand towards Chaance, unleashing a wave of corrupting energy.
Corrupting Touch vs. Chaance (touch): 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (15) + 2 = 17
The hand moves through flesh unimpeded, touching her heart, the dark energy surges forth, engulfing Chaance in its malevolent embrace, threatening to drain her life force.
Corrupting touch damage: 12d6 ⇒ (2, 3, 2, 5, 2, 2, 6, 5, 3, 5, 5, 5) = 45
Fort DC 19 for half

With a sinister grin, Furkas taunts "A gentle touch exchange, my dear Casandalee" he hisses, his spectral gaze flickering as if wrestling with a distorted memory "Yet, the last I knew, your devotions were pledged to Unity, not the Dawnflower. The mists of undeath play tricks on the memories of the living. Has your divine muse forsaken you?"

Feeling the need for regeneration, Furkas retreats deeper into the swirling mist, seeking solace within the confines of the wind wall. The miasma caresses him, granting a measure of healing as he plots his next move.
Negative energy damage: 2d6 ⇒ (5, 4) = 9

Yambul pours the oil of Bless Weapon upon the blade. As he has an action left, he draws another potion vial. Magicked up, he steps forward to the ghost.

With the mist contained, Rūha falls back into position to flank the ghost with Yambul. She strikes once, hoping the strange energy infusing her body might disrupt the ghost just a little.

Yambul steps forward, pouring the oil of bless weapon onto his blade. Magically enhanced, he moves closer to the ghostly adversary.

Concealment: 1d100 ⇒ 60
Rūha, seizing the opportunity with the mist contained, repositions herself to flank Furkas and delivers a precise punch, her mystical energy half damaging the ethereal enemy.

Rhoreen, enduring the effects of the ghostly shout, retaliates by casting magic missile directly at Furkas. The forceful arcane missiles are absorbed by its figure. Abnormally, she sees her own ring to crackle with energy for a second as her force missiles are absorbed by the ghost's hand.

Rhoreen:

Rhoreen, your ring of forcefangs has gained 1 charge.

Chaance slips a shoulder under the ghostly paw of Furkas, remembering Rūha's words pointing out the once mortal's dominant hand. She only briefly regrets stepping so close to something so obviously savage to life, stepping back and laying into the incorporeal with very real arrows.

Elk Father's Bow...: 1d20 + 16 + 1 - 3 - 2 + 2 ⇒ (14) + 16 + 1 - 3 - 2 + 2 = 28 for 1d8 + 4 + 1 + 6 + 2 ⇒ (8) + 4 + 1 + 6 + 2 = 21 piercing damage, including Advice

"Thank you, Rhoreen. That cloud of his is vexing, to say the least. I'm not sure we're wearing him down very much. Now, Yambul, on the other hand..." The android looks over the human's weapon, now treated with something special for the ghost. "I need to find ghost salts."


Iron Gods: Iron maps;

Chaance well aimed arrows are regretfully deflected and spelled into the ceiling by Rhoreens roaring wall of wind.

Cast defensively DC 21: 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (5) + 14 = 19
The ghostly form of Furkas Xoud, takes advantage of the chaos to further hinder the party. With a malicious grin, he conjures a putrid cloud of stinking vapors, filling the area with a nauseating odor. The foul-smelling fog starts to spread rapidly, but the pressing presence of Rūha and Yambul make the ghost lose concentration of his casting!

The ghost's ethereal form shudders with irritation as his plans are foiled once again. "These mortals persist with their incessant interruptions" he hisses, the ghostly echoes of annoyance reverberating through the room.

Still the smoke within the wall, keeps healing the incorporeal undead.

Unless of course he already knows that the rifle would be useless against the ghost.


Iron Gods: Iron maps;

Yambul, wielding his magically enhanced falchion, swings at Furkas Xoud with determination. The blade cuts through the ethereal form of the ghost on a second swing, causing significant damage as the magic on it partially hurts its incorporeal nature.

Meanwhile, Zzvkgrogk, realizing the limitations of his current weaponry against the ghost, investigates the collapsed harvester robot. With a keen understanding of magical devices, he examines the integrated sonic rifle. His spellcraft expertise allows him to discern that the rifle, unfortunately, would be ineffective against the ghostly entity.
You would know integrated weaponry cannot be effectively used outside the robot body, and it is probably not magical anyway (only magic weapons half damage incorporeals)

Watching her arrows simply careen uselessly towards the ceiling, Chaance begins the begrudging process of tucking away her Bow, and drawing the adamantine weapon of the xill. She considers dousing the ghost with one of several vials of holy water, but the wind wall discourages her for now. Move to 'sheathe', Move to 'draw'


Iron Gods: Iron maps;

Rhoreen channels the power of haste to enhance the party's attacks. With this hastened magics she propels Yambul's arm into another magic chainsaw slash causing more damage to the ghost!

Zzvkgrogk drops his arc pistol and draws his holy water cartridge-loaded dragon pistol. He takes aim and fires at Furkas, but carrying the pistol preloaded has caused a misalignment and the holy vial splatters all over the ratfolk.

Rūha, maintaining her flank with Yambul, unleashes a flurry of strikes against Furkas. Only one of her precise strikes land, adding to the cumulative damage against the ghostly foe.

Chaance, faced with the futility of her arrows against the wind wall, decides to sheathe her bow and draw the adamantine weapon of the xill, preparing for a different approach.

The oppressive wind wall has turned to protect Furkas, deflecting ranged attacks, and so he keeps inside the healing smoke.
Miasma negative damage healing: 2d6 ⇒ (2, 4) = 6

Furkas' ghost seizes the opportunity to unleash another vile spell upon the party. With a twisted grin, he gestures, and a foul-smelling cloud begins to rapidly spread in the room, enveloping the area in a nauseating mist.

You are but insignificant specimens in my realm of study, soon to writhe and squirm like swarms of vermin, engulfed in a symphony of gases that will dissect your very essence. Consider yourselves fortunate; you shall become the subjects of my groundbreaking research, a wretched symphony of suffering in my laboratory of torment!"

'Symphony of suffering? What's he, a Kuthonite re-enactor?'

Rūha doesn't have more than a second or two to contemplate the ghost's theatrical posturing before she's left holding her breath and hoping her mask's non-functional filter at least serves as a barrier against the noxious gas. She maintains her own assault upon Xoud, one with far less power behind it than Yambul's, but it's the best she can muster.

Not sure if Roo's Advice is still embracing us all, didn't include it in my post, but maybe still going?


Iron Gods: Iron maps;

Only Yambul's final swing finds Furkas figure through the smoke. But hard it damages the ghost.

Zzvkgrogk, enduring the noxious cloud, moves swiftly to heal Yambul, which washes over the Kellid mending some of his wounds.

Rūha, grappling with the oppressive scent of Furkas' experiments, manages to deliver a precise strike against the ghost. Her unarmed strike lands true, though it just consumes a bit of the negative essence.

Rhoreen, frustrated by the ongoing challenges, recovers from the nausea. With determination, and a wand swing, the half-elf erects yet another coffin of wind, containing the nauseating vapors this time.

Meanwhile, Chaance picks up some melee weapon and slashes at Furkas with calculated precision. Only thanks to Rūha's advice, she connects twice.
Concealment: 1d100 ⇒ 32
Concealment: 1d100 ⇒ 25

Furkas starts to cast yet another spell, but when the others swing, he is forced to move, spoiling his casting "Argh! You are worse than worms in a Starfall's sewer!"

Spellcraft DC 20:
That was a suffocation spell.

As time passes, the wind wall fully fades and disperses the smoke miasma. The ghost is no longer protected or healed by the cloud!

Yambul, unexpectedly healed by Zzvkgrogk, is appreciative, ”Thanks Zzvkgrogk! I think I might survive a hit now.” he grins with renewed vigor as he keeps on fighting.

He's very excited that the fog has gone away. Concealment is his bane! I suck as miss chances, as evidenced by my last round!

Yep, Advice is continuing to roll all this time. If there's ever a moment we need it, its now (and maybe also against the worm guy).

Ruha leaps into the window of opportunity that opens when Xoud loses his concentration. She jabs thrice, in tandem with Yambul's swings. It's not much, but she hopes it provides enough of a distraction for Yambul to take the ghost finally down.
