"Yessss, I can see why." Balamar nodded. "So, I assume we ask around, then go take a look at the scene when things get quieter?"

Yeah, they're less than fun.

I'm sorry, I thought I'd told everyone. I blew my back out - mechanical damage to the spine is fun - and lost most of the use of my lower half for a while. Not to mention interesting new dimensions of pain when swollen muscles strum across you sciatic nerve like it's playing a violin. I ended up going to Accident and Emergency by Ambulance because they needed to pump me full of morphine to get me out of bed, and apparently they need to observe you for a while if they Morphine you now.

It was a less than comfortable experience, and I'm still healing up, but I'm getting better.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Sorry, my spine decided that being inside my body was reason enough to rebel.

Balamar nodded to the others as they located each other. "So...I'm guessing this is all about our newest newspaper celebrity?"


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Still here, but I've been hurt and so between the drugs, lack of sleep an pain I'm not sure how to word stuff. Balamar hasn't clicked as well in my mind as I'd have liked, so she doesn't flow onto the page.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Well...that can't be good. Balamar looked at the picture with a sigh, setting aside her mostly eaten meal. It looked like it was going to be a busy day after all.

Looked like it was time to go an hunt down a killer.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

I'm afraid I'm heading a to a funeral, and will probably be in no shape to post for a couple of days.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Sorry about the slow response. Work was bad, and I didn't get a chance to do anything.

Balamar watched the human mating dance with bemusement. It always seemed much more simply with Dwarfdom. Find someone who was interesting, see if they were interested in you, make sure your clans were not involved in a blood fued and enjoy yourselves. Humans made things complicated. It was fun, in a 'I'm glad I'm watching and not participating' kind of way.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Balamar looked at the greenery in suspicion. It was a hard habit to break. There was greenery below the surface if you knew where to look, but a lot of the time it was carnivorous.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Assuming I get an invite...

Well, with a costume party there was really only one choice. Steel. Balamar quickly beats out a set of metal feathers, some claws and an odd looking helmet. With heat and acid she made the metal an almost rainbow of colours.

Some of the feathers went onto the beaker helmet, giving the impression of an angry chicken lizard. More went onto cloth that spread between Balamar's arms, creating wings of a sort. The iron claws were attacthed to some old gauntlets, and the rest of the feathers attatched to a chestplate and pauldrons.

The complete set made her look as much like a cockatrice as a Dwarf was likely to get, she decided with a nod.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

I think I'm good.

"He took some of the staff captive, claiming that they had held the bears illegally, and that in recompense they must improve living conditions and deliver fresh salmon daily. Given he is missing, I would do as he said if you do not wish him to step in again." Siege shrugged with a clanking noise.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Siege assumed it was the bear who had been the judge. Well...OK. "I believe that particular creature may have been awakened. It...quite literally judged some people. You owe the bears here a lot of salmon, by the way."


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

"I am not sure I want to know," Siege considered, waving for the people to move away and wondering where they could get that much salmon. It was typically only really easy to get in spring, after all. "But let us find out."


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

...and now they were debating legal context and intent with a bear. Siege deiced it was time to start checking the granaries for odd mold.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Tilting there head to one side, Siege considered this. It was apparently going to be an odd kind of day.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Siege stopped. "Well, that was something of a surprise. It is a shame we have no Druid." The Dwarf approached slowly, hand in the air. "Greetings. We would like to talk, if that is possible." The fact the bear carried a hammer suggested it might be able to speak. If it couldn't...this was going to get messy, and quickly.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Siege followed a distance behind. Not just because short legs were never meant to keep up with people, but so she didn't distract the creature from following as it was meant to.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

"Can anyone call an elemental we can use to lure him to the cage?" It was the only thing Siege could think of that might be able to play with the thing and not be hurt.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Siege tied the monster up. Hopefully between that and being unconcious the thing would stay put and not try and grab anyone else. "Hunt for the escapee from the Herpetarium? Or the Ursine Exhibit?" The armoured Dwarf glanced at the others.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Siege grunted as the chomp landed. Thankfully there wasn't too much flesh where the shoulder was, so whatever was bleeding could probably wait. Shortening the chain on the massive iron ball, she swung again, hoping to knock the beast out.

To Hit: 1d20 + 10 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 10 + 2 = 13
Non-Lethal Damage: 1d10 + 8 ⇒ (8) + 8 = 16


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Siege also tried to knock the monster down and out.

To Hit: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (13) + 10 = 23
Non-Lethal Damage: 1d10 + 8 ⇒ (10) + 8 = 18


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Yup, hence the note about waiting until it descended to the ground.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Waiting until the creature descended to the ground, Siege cast Shadow Trap with a gesture and a word. Hopefully it would pin the monster in place long enough to rescue the woman.

DC 16 Will Save or be trapped in that place.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Sighing, the Dwarf followed. Chase scenes were never fun when your legs were a third shorter than everyone elses.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

"If this creature is taken alive, can you actually contain it, or must it be put down?" Siege did not wish to kill the animal, but...it was an option.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Siege looked at them. They wanted them...to round up animals? Of course, there were a lot of very dangerous animals. Bears, many big cats, any number of more unusual creatures...

Nodding, Siege started to move in the direction the zoo keeper was flailing.

West 1, East 2: 1d2 ⇒ 1

Who on earth had set this up? One of the others? Donning her armour once more, and headed for the West. If only to find out why and what.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Well, I can't actually heal, although with a little luck I might be able to do at the level up.

Dot

Balamar pursed her lips at the paper, before using it as kindling to light the forge. When people were clearly concealing their identity, and you went and made their actions a public spectacle, it was rather insulting. Unless it was a criminal. That was obviously different/

Besides, she thought as she got the smithy going, they could at least have gotten the details right, and found a better artist to sketch things.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Siege followed, ready for spiders. And a bath.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

"Yes," Siege murumured, "Spiders would be...bad."


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Siege considered the situation. "Some kind of possession?"


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

"The woman behind the assault on town with the spiders seeks a Cleric. Perhaps to aid in her redemption." Siege shrugged armoured shoulders with a clank. Whether the woman could be redeemed was...difficult to say. "If you would agree to accompany us, we could escort you to her."

Diplomacy: 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (11) + 14 = 25


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Brushing the soot off her armour, Siege shrugged. It had worked, and they were only lightly scorched, so it had been worth it to not be eaten by a horrible swarm. The bulky Dwarf gestured to continue down the passage once everyone was ready.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Fortitude: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (11) + 7 = 18

Still fighting off the creature's strange abilities, Siege hurled another vial of fire as she fell back with the others. They weren't as effective as the Dwarf had hoped, but it was better than nothing.

Touch Attack: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (12) + 6 = 18
Damage: 1d6 ⇒ 1


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Fortide Vs Distraction: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (14) + 7 = 21
Fortitude Vs Poison: 1d20 + 7 + 3 ⇒ (9) + 7 + 3 = 19

Siege grunted as the little monsters crawled into her armour, although they were more of an annoyance than a danger thanks to the fact most of Siege's body was machine nowadays. Pulling a vial of Alchemist's Fire from a belt pouch, she hurled it at the largest concentration of Spider that didn't have a hysterically screaming hero in it...or any other kind, for that matter.

Ranged Touch Attack: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (13) + 6 = 19
Damage: 1d6 ⇒ 1


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Balamar kept an ear on what was ahead and an eye behind the party.

Perception: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (3) + 9 = 12


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

And by 'best' you mean 'second best'? I'll take up the rear - ranged weapons should let me take a shot at things when I get close.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Siege considered the sewers a suitable place to find such a piece of filth...and an easy enough environment, given her old home.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Balamar had some gold. Quite a lot of gold, in fact. She didn't really need to work, if she chose not to. Buying 5 vials of Alchemist's Fire and a couple of scrolls.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Siege's main concern was the fact it had taken fire to destroy the creatures. Changing back into Balamar's gear, the Dwarf went looking for places that could sell her Alchemist's Fire, and any way of temporarily adding a fire element to her weapon's abilities.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Balamar shook her head sadly. Queen of the spiders? Where was the quality of villainy from the tales..."Should we look for a giant web?"


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Siege nodded, thoughtfully. "Worth climbing up, see if they left something on the roofs?"


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Cayden Cailean would be more midday - can't imagine the hangover lets him pass out divine power much before noon.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Siege shrugged with a clanking sound. It didn't especially matter as to what they were called, really. But of interest was the location of this attack, and where it had come from...

"Where did the attack start?" Siege added.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

I vote for Anima Libera. It means 'Free Souls'.

The heavily armoured Dwarf turned and looked at the crowd for a moment. "Siege," came the answer, deliberately deepening her voice and allowing the helmet to echo it, hopefully stopping anyone from recognizing Balamar's voice.


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Our names, or are we deciding on a group name?


Female Dwarf Oracle/Vigilante Gestalt 4 | HP 40/40 | AC 26, T 13, FF 18 | Fort +7, Ref +5, Will +6 | CMD 22, CMD 13 | Perc +9 | Init +1

Moving to the nearest spider, Siege moved to crush it. Although Siege might not be able to burn them to death, but they could keep them from moving, and make them really regret being able to regenerate.

Squish: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (3) + 8 = 11
Damage: 1d10 + 12 ⇒ (7) + 12 = 19
