Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Greedy and Buddy have been joined by Nasty and Grimy, bringing the zombie grindylow total up to 4.

They have all been given ropes and grappling hooks because they have proven that they are the worst at climbing.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Oh goody! The paralyzed one is still alive. Can I get a save vs. Ghoul Fever please? If I play this right I'll have a Lacedon Sea Devil in a week or two.

The sea devil's attacks somehow turn out less damaging and severe than the doomed creatures first thought.

DR 5 subtracted from each attack reduces the damage of both attack sequences to 4

The three otherworldly creatures converged on the the prone sea devil, tearing at it and drinking their fill of it's blood, eventually dragging it kicking and screaming into the rip with them.

Pure fluff. They each attack it and drag it "overboard" on the last round that they are around.

Attack rolls:

The big one and one small one can 5' adjust and take full attacks. The other one will have to move in.

Big One, Claw Attack 1: 1d20 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (8) + 4 + 2 = 14
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

Big One Claw Attack 2: 1d20 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (19) + 4 + 2 = 25
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

Small One 1, Claw Attack 1: 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 + 2 = 7
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 = 5

Small One 1, Claw Attack 1: 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (9) + 2 + 2 = 13
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 = 5

Small One 2, Claw Attack (no full attack due to movement): 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (10) + 2 + 2 = 14
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

The things fell from the rip, answering Deader's call, lunging forth, all claws, dripping blood from every tiny mouth.

Smaller one, 1 (appears at A7, attack B7)
Claw: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (9) + 2 = 11
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6
Claw: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3

Smaller one, 2 (appears at B6, attacks C6)
Claw: 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 + 2 = 5
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 = 5
Claw: 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (18) + 2 + 2 = 22
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3

The Big One (appears at C9, attacks D9)
Claw: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (15) + 4 = 19
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7
Claw: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (13) + 4 = 17
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (4) + 4 = 8


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

The two undead grindylows were in the water cleaning barnacles. A mental command from Deader had them take position at the blade of the keel and look up at the intruders, hiding for now.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

The bloody creatures finish their ghastly meal and vanish back into the folds of space and time.

The two things that were once grindylows and the Ghoulish Sailor move back to the smallboat and gut and bleed the heavy corpse of Son. Once they've lightened the massive mutant corpse they drag his body, and and two other grindylow bodies from the smallboat and down into the bilge.

Aside from an occasionally hungry glance, they completely ignore the living crew.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Deader doesn't even look at his unliving crewmates. Somehow they just know. As one they turn and dive into the water.

Their orders are to bring him back to me alive.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

The creatures pay no mind to surrender. They happily gorge on Plugg's unconscious body, replenishing the blood they have been constantly excreting. The ghoul likewise continues it's feast.

If you want him alive, speak up. I'll order them to stop before they can do damage this "round"

The little hook covered horror Deader had named Greedy looked for the nearest breathing target and dragged itself forward by it's arms, trailing dripping leathery tentacles behind it.

Zombies can Charge their movement speed, which for Greedy is only 15 feet. If there's anyone in range, Greedy will attack.

Charge: 1d20 + 3 + 2 ⇒ (19) + 3 + 2 = 24
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 = 5

Trip (entangling tentacles, swift action): 1d20 + 5 + 2 ⇒ (10) + 5 + 2 = 17


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Previous round's Summon Monster 1 spell drops another Bloody Skeleton at H8

Another rent in space. Another terrible creature. Another pair of tearing claws.

We'll call this one Other One. :)
Claw, Flanking: 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 2 + 2 = 16
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 = 5

Claw, Flanking: 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (18) + 2 + 2 = 22
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3

Pretty sure Plugg didn't see this coming. :)


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

The two bleeding creatures follow their prey

The larger one moves in behind Plugg in a sudden flurry of claws
Big one 5' Adjusts to I9
Claw, Flanking: 1d20 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (15) + 4 + 2 = 21
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6

Claw, Flanking: 1d20 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (8) + 4 + 2 = 14
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (4) + 4 = 8

The smaller one steps up in front of Scourge, but remains intent on Plugg.
Small one 5'adjusts to J9
Claw, target flanked: 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (20) + 2 + 2 = 24
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4
Crit confirm: 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (15) + 2 + 2 = 19
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 = 5

Claw, target flanked: 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 + 2 = 8
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Greedy
Stealth: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (6) + 16 = 22
Climb: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (11) + 2 = 13
Makes it the rest of the way up the side of the boat.

Buddy
Stealth: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (1) + 16 = 17
Climb: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (11) + 2 = 13
Finally starts climbing up. Makes it 10 feet.

Ghouly
Claw: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (15) + 3 = 18
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5
Claw: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (17) + 3 = 20
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (6) + 1 = 7
Bite: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (7) + 3 = 10
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5
Rips into his paralyzed prey.

On the other side of the ship, the dripping ghoul tears into the body of the paralyzed sailor, flaying flesh and ripping off a bite of living meat.

The zombified octogoblin covered in hooks and nets finally made it to the railing, pulling itself to the edge and looking at the living with dead white eyes. The second one followed a few feet behind.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

The two bleeding creatures lash out at their fleeing prey.

AoO (big one): 1d20 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (20) + 4 + 2 = 26
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (4) + 4 = 8

Crit Confirm: 1d20 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 4 + 2 = 11
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

Oh well.

AoO (little one): 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 + 2 = 7
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Bloody Human Skeletons as base creature. 1d3 ⇒ 2 Two of them arrive in square I9. One adjusts to J10. The other moves to flank at H10.

The inhuman things were covered in tiny mouths and dripped crimson all over the deck. They tore at Plugg with single-minded savagery.

Bigger one
Claw Attack, flanking: 1d20 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (17) + 4 + 2 = 23
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

Claw Attack, flanking: 1d20 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 4 + 2 = 18
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6

Smaller one
Claw Attack, flanking: 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (9) + 2 + 2 = 13
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (1) + 4 = 5

Claw Attack, flanking: 1d20 + 2 + 2 ⇒ (14) + 2 + 2 = 18
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (1) + 4 = 5

Good luck Cedrick. Hope that takes some heat off you.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Let's see if we can start turning the tide...

Ghoul Stealth: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (14) + 7 = 21
Ghoul Climb: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (11) + 7 = 18

Ghoul moves the rest of the way up with 5 feet to spare and moves to M5 to attack. Since he's coming over the side after having been using stealth, I'm pretty sure I catch him flat footed unless he makes a Perception check that beats my Stealth roll.

Ghoul Claw: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (18) + 3 = 21
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (6) + 1 = 7
If damage is dealt, DC 13 vs Paralysis and DC 13 vs Disease

Greedy Stealth: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (17) + 16 = 33
Greedy Climb: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (16) + 2 = 18

Buddy Stealth: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (7) + 16 = 23
Buddy Climb: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 2 = 8

Greedy makes it up 10 feet. Buddy flails in the water.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Greedy Climb: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (10) + 2 = 12
Greedy Stealth: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (15) + 16 = 31

Buddy Climb: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (7) + 2 = 9
Buddy Stealth: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (3) + 16 = 19

Ghoul Climb: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (9) + 7 = 16
Ghoul Stealth: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (13) + 7 = 20

The ghoul moves 10 feet up the side. Greedy moves 5. Buddy doesn't manage to get out of the water.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

The three monsters converge on the witch's massive son, dragging it's bloated carcass beneath the waves. The water churns as they pull their meal to the bottom and feed. Soon the blackened water is entirely a dark and dirty red.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Advanced Bloody Skeleton

The larger one didn't have nearly as much trouble.

Swim: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (18) + 4 = 22

Claw: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (17) + 4 = 21
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Bloody Skeleton

The bleeding things lunged forward at their new prey...

Swim: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3
Move 5' forward.

...but the smaller of the two was unable to pull itself through the water with any success.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Lacedon

5' adjust forward. Full Attack

Bite: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 3 = 9
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4

Claw: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (18) + 3 = 21
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5

Claw: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (20) + 3 = 23
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 1 = 6

Crit Confirm: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (14) + 3 = 17
Additional Crit Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 1 = 6

Starting attacks at Grindylow at C6. Any hit provokes a DC 13 Fort save vs. Paralysis. If the Grindylow dies or gets paralyzed, Lacedon will aim all other attacks to the big guy.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Advanced Bloody Skeleton

AoO: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (11) + 4 = 15
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Bloody Skeleton

AoO: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 2 = 7


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Lacedon
AC 14
HP 13/13

The dead sailor ripped free of the grasping tendrils, lunging forward to continue it's assault on the Grindylows.

Move to D7

Bite: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 3 = 9
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (6) + 1 = 7

DC 13 Fort save vs. Paralysis


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Bloody Skeleton
AC 16
HP 6/6
DR 5/Bludgeoning

The things that rose behind her were terrible to behold. Instead of normal facial features, they had a single large eye that took up most of their head. They moved like they were boneless. Their hands were little more than massive scything claws. They were covered in tiny fang-filled mouths that opened and closed, drinking in the filthy water and spitting out blood from others, like some bizarre parody of a fishes gills.

They were fixated on the Grindylow witch.

At B4
Claw: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6

Claw: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (14) + 2 = 16
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

1d3 ⇒ 2 Bloody Skeletons summoned, one with the Advanced Simple template

Advanced Bloody Skeleton
AC 18
HP 8/8
DR 5/Bludgeoning

Bubbles surfaced and popped behind the Grindylow witch. Then clawed hands breached the water and raked at her back...

At B5
Claw: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (1) + 4 = 5
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (4) + 4 = 8

Claw: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (10) + 4 = 14
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Deader's new crewman lashes out savagely at the creature in front of it.

Full Attack
Claw: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (16) + 3 = 19
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4

Claw: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (15) + 3 = 18
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2

Bite: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (16) + 3 = 19
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2

each hit requires a DC 13 Fort save vs. Paralysis.

If an enemy fail's it's save, the Lacedon will immediately target the next creature, 5' adjusting between attacks if need be. Ghouls have a 13 int, which is plenty to know that once something is paralyzed, it's best to move onto a new threat.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Deader's new friend dipped below the surface and reappeared attempting to it's teeth into Grindylow flesh.

Is the Lacedon able to Charge since it has a swim speed?

Bite: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (5) + 3 = 8
Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 1 = 6 DC 13 save vs Paralysis


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Definitely. More hooks and netting just add to my stylish appearance.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

The terrible thing surfaced again, it's eyes just above the water, bobbing along next to his master like a puppet on the end of lazy strings. The unrestrained savagery it had just displayed was firmly in check again, locked away by it's master's commands.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

The terrible thing continued to pummel and tear at the corpse of it's former friend. Fishhook-covered tentacles wrapped all around the corpse, dragging it under, churning the water into a reddish froth.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

The terrible hook-covered creature that used to be a grindylow continued to pummel it's former friends.

Slam: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (12) + 3 = 15
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

A wet gurgle escaped the lips of the hook-tangled creature. It lashed out with unnatural strength striking it's former brethren.

Slam Attack: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (19) + 3 = 22
Damage: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

D5 reduces it to 2 damage.

12/16 HP


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Greedy's hook-studded tentacles thrash with barely repressed malice. It's clear that the mindless urge to kill it's former's allies is there, but it obeys the commands it has been given.

It moves to a new patch of netting and hooks, continuing to thrash and rip.

Move to J4


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Never did roll Greedy's HP.

He started with 1 HD, then became a zombie, so it's HD changed to D8s and he got 1 bonus HD from size, so he gets 8 HP base.

HP: 1d8 + 8 ⇒ (8) + 8 = 16

Nice. Greedy's a tough little bugger.

With DR5/Slashing he only took 2 damage from that last set of attacks, putting him currently at 14/16 HP.

Edit: Greedy's stats added to alias. Grindylows make surprisingly good zombies.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

The undead octopus goblin continued to tear at the netting, reaching hungrily towards it's former companions, getting more and more hooks imbedded in it's flesh and thrashing with all ten limbs, whipping the water into a bloody froth topped with pinkish foam.

One more space cleared of hooks and nets. Lets go with square J5 since it's toward the enemies and will let the others squeeze past if they want to engage.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Greedy moves into the net and begins to rip at it, ignoring the hooks.


Greedy HP 16/16, Buddy HP 16/16, Nasty 20/20, Grimy 20/20, AC 17

Summon Monster 1 goes off.

Deader grinned and beckoned and something stepped out of a rippling fold in space just behind the last of their foes.

It screamed a thousand far away whispers as it's skin bubbled in the light of the sun. Enraged, it lashed out with miss-jointed limbs and tore into the man before it.

Claw 1: 1d20 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (9) + 4 + 2 = 15
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

Claw 1: 1d20 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 4 + 2 = 18
Damage: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

Deader summons a Bloody Skeleton with the Advanced template using It Came From Beyond. It appears at J6 and attacks.
