All of you RUN CUT HIM OFF. Its a one way passage. Damn us for not seeing this when we were there.

Marcus is in a full run to cut off the green one.

Lola will zap worrel with two blasts of the clw wand and take a blast herself.

Then, she will pick up her crossbow, reload it and run to find the faceless one, knowing this will take a number of rounds.

OUT OF CHARACTER
Doing a couple of rounds here, since you guys posted plenty of actions

 

Round 20

Worrel remains unconscious.

Lola, tend to Worrel, Cyrius declares, then runs to check on Prost.

Lola retrieves her wand, then moves over near Worrel.

All of you RUN CUT HIM OFF. Its a one way passage. Damn us for not seeing this when we were there. Marcus is in a full run to cut off the green one.

Who knows what nefarious activities the Faceless One is performing behind the secret door?

Wait, can't we just follow him through this door? asks Tex, moving up to the secret door.

Round 21

Worrel remains unconscious.

Cyrius reaches Prost and finds him just as you left him, mumbling softly [Cyrius still has one action left from Round 21]

Lola gives Worrel a zap of the wand [healed 5 hp and now at exactly 0 and disabled]

Marcus passes Cyrius and enters the darkened labyrinth of dead goblins [Marcus has an action left, but is now in the dark]

The Faceless One continues doing who knows what...

Tex pushes the button to open the secret door, but is rewarded only with a grinding sound. Blast, I think he's jammed it, says Tex, turning to follow Marcus and Cyrius.

ACTIVE EFFECTS
Spells in effect:

1. Bless: all party members +1 morale to attack and +1 to saves vs. fear, 0.8 minutes left

2. Web: The entire area is difficult terrain (2 squares per square). In addition, anyone moving through the webs must make a combat maneuver check or Escape Artist check as part of their move action, with a DC of 17. Creatures that fail lose their movement and become grappled in the first square of webbing that they enter. If you have at least 5 feet of web between you and an opponent, it provides cover. If you have at least 20 feet of web between you, it provides total cover.

1. Worrel: longsword and shield readied, 42 arrows left, Smite Evil 0 left, Lay on Hands 2 left, light (from Marcus) on longsword 46.7 min left, Divine Bond 2.9 min left, Smite Evil vs. the Faceless One, 63 hp damage, conscious but disabled

2. Cyrius of the Sudden Blade: uncharged mind blade longsword readied, 23 bolts left, 31 hp damage

3. Lola: +1 short sword and wand of CLW readied, heavy crossbow dropped at 0309, wand of CLW 4 charges left, 3 channel energy left, 77 bolts left, 38 hp damage

4. Marcus Tilsworth: nothing in hand, 1 elemental ray left, 4 alchemists fire left, 84 bolts left, Shield 4.7 min left, Mage armor 299.8 min left, 26 hp, 3 Wisdom damage

5. Masked Man in Green Robes (a.k.a. the Faceless One) (F1): somewhere on the other side of a secret door, holding a dagger, 23 hp damage (2 are nonlethal, plus he's healed some)

6. Evan Prost: loaded slingstaff readied, 3 regular bullets left, 40 crossbow bolts left, sunrod in boot, Elixir of Vision 57.2 min left, comatose, cannot act

7. Texudus TreeBender: longbow readied, 20 arrows left, Aspect of the Falcon 1.4 min left, 40 hp damage

Round 22

Worrel waits for additional healing.

Having moved near Prost the previous round, Cyrius removes the sunrod from Prost's boot and follows after Marcus.

Lola continues to heal Worrel with her wand [healed 8 hp]

Marcus casts light on himself.

In the now lighted labyrinth, Cyrius and Marcus see the Faceless One step into view. He casts a spell and magical projectiles fly forth, parting the air with a humming whine before carving a jagged wound in Cyrius [3 magic missiles hit for a total of 12 hp damage]

Tex continues to follow Marcus and Cyrius as fast as his stubby legs can go.

Stung by the magical attack, Cyrius moves to 0215 (jogging to one side to avoid the fire pit and give Marcus and Texudus clearer shots) and swings at the party's nemesis--

Worrel gets to his feet, tightening his grip on his sword. The paladin then moves to the south, through the secret door, to close with the Faceless One.
OUT OF CHARACTER
Not sure if the secret door south of Worrel is open, or not.

Move - stand from prone
Move - 10 ft to 0213

I hope I did my ranged touch attack right.

 

Marcus targets the Faceless One with two Scorching Rays simultaneously.

Round 24

Worrel gets to his feet and picks up the weapons he dropped while unconscious [Worrel wouldn't know the secret door is there; he was knocked out when the Faceless One left]

Stung by the magical attack, Cyrius advances (jogging to one side to avoid the fire pit and give Marcus and Texudus clearer shots) and swings at the party's nemesis. A fierce hit grates across his enemy, leaving lacerated wounds [critical for 19 hp damage]

Lola gives herself a shot of healing from her wand [healed 3 hp], puts away one of the things in her hands (sword or wand, probably doesn't matter which right now), then steps to where she dropped her crossbow.

Marcus targets the Faceless One with two Scorching Rays simultaneously. Missing, the rays fizzle out against the far wall [Your ray attack is +4, +1 more from bless, but there's a -4 for shooting into melee; even without that you weren't very close to hitting]

The Faceless One yelps at the wound from Cyrius, steps back into a position with more cover, retrieves a potion, and drinks it. Some of his injuries are lessened.

Tex catches up with Marcus.

ACTIVE EFFECTS
Spells in effect:

1. Bless: all party members +1 morale to attack and +1 to saves vs. fear, 0.6 minutes left

2. Web: The entire area is difficult terrain (2 squares per square). In addition, anyone moving through the webs must make a combat maneuver check or Escape Artist check as part of their move action, with a DC of 17. Creatures that fail lose their movement and become grappled in the first square of webbing that they enter. If you have at least 5 feet of web between you and an opponent, it provides cover. If you have at least 20 feet of web between you, it provides total cover.

Coming up in Round 25:

1. Worrel: longsword and shield readied, 42 arrows left, Smite Evil 0 left, Lay on Hands 2 left, Divine Bond 2.7 min left, Smite Evil vs. the Faceless One, 55 hp damage

2. Cyrius of the Sudden Blade: uncharged mind blade longsword and sun rod readied, 23 bolts left, 43 hp damage

3. Lola: +1 short sword OR wand of CLW readied, heavy crossbow dropped at 0309, wand of CLW 2 charges left, 3 channel energy left, 77 bolts left, 35 hp damage

4. Marcus Tilsworth: nothing in hand, 1 elemental ray left, 4 alchemists fire left, 84 bolts left, Shield 4.5 min left, Mage armor 299.6 min left, light 49.9 min left, 26 hp, 3 Wisdom damage

5. Masked Man in Green Robes (a.k.a. the Faceless One) (F1): holding a dagger, 41 hp damage (2 were nonlethal, plus he's healed some)

6. Evan Prost: loaded slingstaff readied, 3 regular bullets left, 40 crossbow bolts left, sunrod in boot, Elixir of Vision 57.0 min left, comatose, cannot act

Taking a five-foot step to 0114, Cyrius charges his mind blade with psychic energy and with a silent appeal to Athena swings at the Faceless One again--

Marcus moves to 0315. Cyrius, back away for me. PLEASE!
Marcus holds his Attack for Cyrius to comply.

Really? Really. One great roll and gets a mild sunburn. One lousy roll and gets cooked...
