Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja grins as her target is caught. She drops gleefully off the wall using her dropping weight to drag the net, then runs away from the wall, straining on the rope.

Str: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (17) + 2 = 19

TSC: Can Kaxatja try to drag the drow toward the window? Kaxatja has the trailing line and can keep the drow from moving away with an opposed Strength check, but what if Kaxatja holds the line and drops off the wall and moves away while pulling on the line? Opposed Strength check to drag?


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja’s response:
With grim resolve, Kaxatja climbs up the wall to bring her humanoid torso level with the window to allow a good throw of her net. She chooses the drow female as her target...

[Take 10 on climb for 18]

Throw!!!: 1d20 + 1 + 1 ⇒ (16) + 1 + 1 = 18 [+1 Dex, +1 Weapon Focus (Net)]

Is Kaxatja considered to be flanking? Does she receive a penalty for throwing through a window?


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja steps near the open window, trying to see or hear anything from within...

Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (12) + 6 = 18 Essentially to determine if by chance this window happens to be the one opening out of the room the kobold is in...


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja heads back around to the northern side window to prepare for any possible outcomers...


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Deftly stepping between detritus and muck on her tarsial claws, shaking them daintily to dislodge unwanted mess from the furry tufts of her paws. She makes a face.

”Two open windows - one north, one south. The rest boarded up.” she reports to the others as Brevka makes her introductions inside at the counter.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Casting an not-at-all-no-really-it’s-fine anxious look at Johysis and Dav, Kaxatja cases the building, beginning to make a circuit of its walls to locate means of egress.

Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (8) + 6 = 14 [to see or hear soberphobes as they erupt from building]

Kaxatja is heading around in an anti-clockwise direction from the doorway...


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

”Yes.” Kaxatja replies simply.

”Johysis, can you manage young Dav here...” the drider asks their appointed sitter. ”We need to concentrate on ending the thieves...


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja watches, her face an inscrutable mask. She pouts at the herbalist from her high stature.

”The drow female. Did she cast any spells? Or any other others? Tell us everything about them that you can to ensure there are no complications. Of which you WILL be a part.

The drider’s trident jabs toward Daveth to impress the...er...point(s).


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja is about to reply when she hears the dramatic entrance of Brevka.

The drider stands taut, net ready to throw if anything comes toward her.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja scuttles to the back with Johysis.

”Please shoot the vagrant if he so much as moves against us...” the drider asks politely, keenly aware of the difference in station between thrall and warden...


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

”It looks like the herbalist could be experimenting with odd botany - his waste pile appears to be escaping into bloom...” Kaxatja alerts her crew.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja’s eyes widen imperceptibly at mention of the likely consequences of fleeing but she nevertheless remains impassive.

”So. The sashes are our leash. Clever.” she returns stonily.

After a brief reconnoitre of the back alley (Kaxatja will check that the vagrant is just that...)

Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (9) + 6 = 15

she reports to the others.

”You could alternatively enter from the back...

[ooc]If frontal assault Kaxatja and Johysis will guard the back.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Does the building give onto a back lane or street or is it built/carved into a cavern wall? If it looks like there might be a rear egress:

Kaxatja’s head cocks characteristically to the side. ”Good idea. And the best catcher is the one that won’t fit inside, and has a net, which will likely also be as useless in close quarters.” Kaxatja shakes her net to make the point.

”Honoured Johysis. [here bows low to the overseer] Care to accompany me? You wouldn’t wish one of your charges to escape on their first venture outside the slave pit...


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja nods and seems to say the trainer’s name under her breath as if trying to memorise it.

”Let us go”. the drider says firmly, hefting her net and harpoon.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja’s frame sinks a little as the lode-sash falls upon her. She shrugs her shoulders to ease the strange burden. Her head cocks to one side.

”So five slaves wear sashes of Parastric, while a Volatexia overseer accompanies us. What sash will you wear?” she asks Alaunirra’s trainer.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

”You misunderstand me Brevka - it’s not losing the scent I’m concerned about - I’m trying to avoid the toughest mark getting tougher, having time to prepare once news spreads. And spread it will.

The drider pulses, body bobbing on her spindly legs.

”No matter. Either concern is valid and as likely. I will not push the point.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Awesome post TSC! And options!


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kacatja ignores the question, rather posing advice of her own.

”Word may spread once we shake down the first mark. The closer we get to the last, the more warning they might have. Unless they are all in close proximity to one another, I suggest we target the procurer of specimens first, given they are feted as the toughest opponent...” Kaxatja looks to her companions.

”Perhaps rather than march in and demand satisfaction, a ruse might be in order, possibly involving a prospective trade - a drider for...something else... Nurgal knows I need no training to pretend bondage...” Kaxatja holds her arms out crossed at the wrists in imitation of manacled imprisonment by way of illustrating her point.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

You okay TSC?


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

"For do we not need to prove our validity as collectors? Who else might believe a greenskin, a surfacer, a shadow and a spike join with a spider to do thus..."


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja straightens a little.

"Mistress. Be it ever so impertinent to bother you with such details. I wish for the weapons and armor I am trained in. And, perhaps a crossbow. Some bolts." the drider begins, warming to the task as she perceives some measure of planning might suffice.

"Are we to be caparison'd as of your House and thus advertise a measure of your might and power and the consequence for failure to pay dues, or are we to be enforcers of a more discreet nature?" Kaxatja finishes, doubling the impertinence by meeting Chardalyn'd eyes with her own.

What more can they do to me?


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja burns in shame and dishonor, bereft of family and clan...and even people.

A specimen of Volatexia..though Parastric cast me out and disfigured me thus. And Second Daughter either refuses to acknowledge me...or worse, knows not my lineage.

Seeing little point in asking questions that won’t be answered, beast as she is, Kaxatja merely stands mute, tall and spindly, awaiting an indication that the interview is over, and that the work can begin.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja blanches as she realises who Lady Chardalyn is, but holds her gaze steely as she is crudely examined and ignored as nothing more than a...creature.

So. A creature I am. Cast out, and now dragged back to be a pawn. Now it is my move.

Once their group is chosen, Kaxatja bows long and low, all seeming deferential and grateful in the one movement.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Itsh ok, all good here...


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Wait...somebody could be not attracted to Tushky Shpyshe?


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kamala lost it on the sand.
Brevka took it in her hand.
Kaxatja saw her, then deadpann’d
But Kamala knows, suspicions fanned,
Now searches our gladiator band.

No, Kaxatja is not a very good poet.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja's face freezes, and she stands quickly on her thin, high legs, towering over Kamala.

"I cannot say. You seek me, and my aid. Twice. I ask you do not return a third time. May you find your patron's honor on the sand."

With that the drider climbs back into her nest.

Unless Kamala tries something...


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

All good here.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja frowns.

"A token. No, I did not pick up any such thing. What did it look like?" the drider dissembles, telling a truth.

Bluff: 1d20 + 0 ⇒ (10) + 0 = 10


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja stirs. She stretches her arms out languidly.

"I am awake. Sit, please. " she says, clambering down out of her nest.

"I am afraid I can't offer you anything..to eat or drink. The accommodation is somewhat lacking."

The drider stares at the woman opposite, and lowers herself to the ground.

"Twice now you darken my doorway. What is it that you seek from me?"


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja merely nods to Corazen and after disposing of the tools of her trade ambles arachnidically back to her cell. She climbs into her nest, curls up and closes her eyes. But she does not sleep. She searches the far recesses of her mind, trying to tie memories to feelings, names to faces and places to her heart.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja stares at the cloven spider, it’s vital juice spread over her own arachnid parts. The drideress spares not a thought for its death.

Strange that I am arachnid, but share no empathy or fellow feeling with this dismembered beast. Yet, perhaps, in time I will. What am I? Do I spare these thoughts in vain? Likely. Best be sure not to write a poem about it. That way madness lies. And, in distraction, a death, here on the sands.

”Well struck Brevka.” Kaxatja offers with all the personality she can muster. Which, it must be said, isn’t much.

Still, for the first time, Kaxatja seems relaxed. She saunters away, then stands on her many legs, arms folded, weapons stowed. Watching the other trainers, combatants, runners, fighters. And occasionally, she looks at the walls, and far above, the roof. As if assessing....something.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Fortitude, DC 15: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (18) + 3 = 21

Kaxatja’s cheeks pinch as she sneers in pain. Thankfully her own arachnid blood prevents the drideress from suffering any ill effects from the injected poison.

Waiting to see if Brevka killed the moon spider before posting further...


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Stuck now in close combat, Kaxatja throws everything into ending the fight.

Unghhh!!!: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (9) + 2 = 11 [+2 more if she succeeded in setting up a flank last round...]
Kpfishh!!: 1d8 + 2 ⇒ (7) + 2 = 9


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja disdains the net, moving around to set up a flank she thrusts bodily at the pale arachnid with her trident...

Skirr!!!: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 2 = 14
Kiffst!!!: 1d8 + 2 ⇒ (8) + 2 = 10

[+1 to AC until my next turn for moving 10’ or more, Retiarius trait]


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

”Yes. “The Princess and the Spider”. Let us ensure it ends with both living.” Kaxatja returns coyly. She swishes the heavy net with practiced ease, trident held at the ready.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

"Probably not. If they were, I would not be here. A pampered life leaves one with very little to write about." the drider confides.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja nods. "A good thing for us. We will always need you to finish "things" quickly. If Anabel can sing us to power and Lilamma sing our enemies pain, you and Lyra'an cut and slice. I can aid where possible to tangle and impede, but I am neither very strong nor much trained. And quite...fragile." To illustrate the point the drider flexes up and down on her arachnid legs.

"I need training. Expertise born of experience. Before I was like this I was a poet, an artisan, a daughter of luxury and langour. Nights of lassitude. So. I need my new sisters to train me. To keep me alive long enough to keep them alive. Or die trying."


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja breathes out, not realising she had been holding her breath. She skitters down close to the twain’d body and casually removes tangled body parts from her net. Rising again, she nods to Brevka and shakes the blood and ichor from the net.

”I was slow.” she says matter of factly, then ducks out of the cage, staring at Corazen with an inscrutable mien, eyes wide, lips pursed.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja frowns, sluggish in this battle.

"Working on it!"

She adroitly throws the net, then using her retiarius training moves and pulls on the trailing rope to hold the creature back from Brevka.

Fzinnn!!!: 1d20 + 1 + 1 ⇒ (14) + 1 + 1 = 16

If that hits, opposed Str check (vs my Str 14) to hold the creature away from Brevka, then it can only target me. Also +1 to my AC if I was able to move 10' or more.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Kaxatja nods, stowing the net in one hand and the trailing rope in the other. She looks hard at the features of the drow, trying to see if she once knew the dead woman. Mostly the drider does not understand how the tied up creature poses a threat. No matter. All will become clear.

”Ready!” she murmurs as she enters the cage.


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

Ditto! Take care STC!


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

[We've been "fed and equipped", so I'm going with armed and armored...]

Kaxatja looks the other teams over with estimation, then shrugs and skitters off after Brevka and Corazen. Having found no time to mention to Lilamma the "Razor Princess" Kamala mentioned, the drider hopes to question the kytonic tiefling before too long.

The adherent of the Razor Princess faces off with a razor princess...


Female Neutral Drider HP 11/11 | AC: 14/T 12/ FF 13 | Fort: +3; Ref: +1; Will: +5 | Init: +2 | Per +6 ; SM: +2 | Spd 40 ft. , Climb 20 ft.| CMB: +2 CMD 13 (+25 vs. trip) | Darkvision 60ft | Performance Combat +6

No sweat ExtraTalefulKitty. School starting should stress anyone out.

"The Razor Princess. I am not familiar with that entity. I might ask Lilamma if she knows of this being."

Kaxatja stands still. "How can the Razor Princess help you? Or me? No matter, for now I wish nothing more than to be left alone again."

The drider climbs, legs adroitly finding purchase on the wall.

"Fare thee well Kamala. And may you strike true, should we meet on the sands."

A dry laugh escapes the drider's throat.

"My thanks Kamala. A good throw, but the net is easy. If I were "good" I would have finished her off rather than let her spit me."

Kaxatja unfurls her legs and clambers out of her nest. She stretches and considers the ebon woman.

"You live to fight again, despite my best effort, so we share a predicament there." A pause, and the drider continues. "It is said you are favored by a demon lord." Kaxatja's eyes bore into Kamala's.

"Is it true? Which one?" she asks without a shadow of guile.

Kaxatja smiles, her face taut in the poor light.

”Hmm. Yes. But my life plagues me more.

The drider makes no move to leave her nest, her head the only part of her to move as it shifts to one side.

”Kamala. You stopped here before. What is is that you want?

Dream:

****

The crashing of the roiling waves of stone dust and earth against the hold were nightmarish, but she held tight, each of her legs pushed out as far as they could against the walls. Each new smashing reverberation seemed to be stronger than the last, and she knew that if the walls were torn asunder the hated light would enter. Light that would shine. Light that would burn, and expose her. Reveal who she was...

Who was she. What was she. More importantly where was she and what was happening? How did she get here? Too fast to dodge, a spear of diamond sharp rock thrust out of one wall, then another, and another, each piercing her abdomen, then her thorax and distended cephalothorax. She had no time to scream, only to....

****

... Kaxatja jerked upright, the pain of her recent trident-wound still real to her body-memory. Magic might take away the hurt and heal the wound but the pain was still real. In her mind. And in her mind there was Niletha’s face. Angular and strong. Wise and knowing. But not cruel enough for House Parastric. What had they done to her? What fate could they have meted out - surely no worse than what they had done to Kaxatja. Kaxatja. “Cast-out”. She had had another name. But it eluded her.

The drider curled up again in her makeshift nest and went back to sleep.
