Round 5

Worrel fails to avoid the washes of flame from the spells cast by the robed figures [20 hp damage applied]. Still, he makes a short step and tries to dispatch one of the casters. Worrel's attack ends with the foe's body so torn apart that it looks as if it had been raked over by some ravenous beast [9 hp damage kills C1].

Cyrius manages to evade the full brunt of the burning hands spell [4 hp damage applied]. With his planned target (C1) dispatched, he moves around the corner to confront C4. Although moving the additional distance means he doesn't have time to charge his mind blade with psychic energy, Cyrius is still able to perform an agile maneuver that places him in the perfect position to perform an execution [7 hp damage kills C4; took the liberty with your action here. Let me know if this isn't what Cyrius would have done].

Seeing the masked figure, Marcus summons a pit beneath the Faceless One's (F1) feet. The masked man plummets to the bottom of the pit [7 hp damage, 2 of which are nonlethal].

Avoiding one of the grabby pillars, Lola moves north. With F1 now out of sight at the bottom of a pit, she brings down her lightning on C2. Crackling loudly towards its target, the bolt silences the enemy [11 hp damage kills C2].

As the crocodile clings to Tex, it tucks in its legs and rolls rapidly, twisting and wrenching the dwarf. This energetic burst of movement overwhelms Tex's defenses [9 hp damage and Tex is prone].

From the bottom of the pit comes the sound of a spell being cast. Although no results are obvious, it is apparent that the fall didn't finish the Faceless One.

The Faceless One just cast shield
The remaining robed man (C3) steps back into the doorway, retrieves a scroll, and reads it. A beam of fire hisses through the air like a snake, striking into Worrel's mid-section [14 hp damage].

With a burst of effort, Tex manages to get free from the crocodile's jaws, finding himself prone in front of it. Nevertheless, he drops his bow and draws his axe, hoping to fight the thing off from the ground.

OUT OF CHARACTER
No problem, it was the logical contingency. Speaking of which...

 

Acting on a hunch (or "an 'unch", as they say on the mythical isle of Albion), Cyrius moves tp 1402 and through the open door in the west wall. If the corridor leads to 1102, as he is gambling, he will move there and attack C3 (who will get an attack of opportunity if he's armed, but what damage can a mere spellcaster do in an AoO?)

If there is another foe between 1402 and 1102, Cyrius will move to engage that opponent.

Image
Image

If there is a closed door between 1402 and 1102, he will move to it and open it, which will probably end his move (or if he can continue to 1102, he won't be able to attack, but will still move so, with the AoO).

If there appears to be no route from 1402 to 1102, he will retrace his steps, then move to 1104, still unable to attack, but engaging C3 (and making a Reflex save vs the flaming sphere.

If there is a trap along the way... :eek:

Marcus will retrieve his stash of alchemists fire. He'll move to 0504 and from there begin tossing them into the pit until he runs out or the pit spell runs out.

Round 6

Worrel prays to Mitra for aid during this fight for himself and his companions [see below for Bless effects]. Once the spell takes effect, he moves towards the summoned crocodile.

Acting on a hunch, Cyrius moves up the wide corridor and through the open door in the west wall. Cyrius' hunch proves correct and he moves in behind C3. The robed man makes a desperate, hopeless slash with his dagger as Cyrius approaches [miss]. Undeterred, Cyrius attacks, but finds the man's magical protections too strong [also a miss].

Marcus retrieves a flask of alchemists fire and moves toward the pit. The crocodile, however, has no interest in letting him pass [attack of opportunity as Marcus tries to leave 0704 in the direction of 0504]. The creature's heavy jaws slam home, goring deep into Marcus' flesh [11 hp damage and Marcus is grappled].

Lola calls down lightning on the crocodile. Even though occupied as it is with Marcus, the beast manages to twist away from the worst of the bolt [save made, 3 hp damage].

OUT OF CHARACTER
Marcus has a standard action left and, at this point, I need to know what he does before the crocodile and the rest of the enemies can act.

Things Marcus could do include: try to break free (CMB check vs. CMD 18), throw the alchemist's fire at the croc or into the pit (attack roll at -4), cast a spell (concentration check vs DC28+spell level).

 

ACTIVE EFFECTS
Spells in effect:

1. F1's Flaming Sphere at 1104: ? rounds left

2. Marcus' Created Pit at 0204 to 0305: D16 Reflex save at +2 required at the edges, 4 rounds left

3. Bless: all party members +1 morale to attack and +1 to saves vs. fear, 2 minutes left

Still Due Up in Round 6

1. Marcus' remaining standard action: alchemist's fire and loaded crossbow in hands, 2 elemental rays left, 84 bolts left, 18 hp, 3 Wisdom damage, grappled]

2. Fiendish Crocodile (Big C): 3 hp damage

3. Masked Man in Green Robes (F1): 7 hp damage (2 are nonlethal)

4. Purple Robed Man (C3)

5. Evan Prost: loaded slingstaff readied, 3 regular bullets left, 40 crossbow bolts left, sunrod in boot, Elixir of Vision 58.7 min left, comatose, cannot act

6. Texudus TreeBender: dwarven waraxe readied, longbow dropped at 0706, 26 arrows left, prone

Round 7

1. Worrel: longsword and shield readied, 42 arrows left, Smite Evil 1 left, light (from Marcus) on longsword 48.1 min left, Divine Bond 4.1 min left, 28 hp damage

2. Cyrius of the Sudden Blade: uncharged mind blade longsword readied, 23 bolts left, 7 hp damage

3. Marcus Tilsworth: alchemist's fire and loaded crossbow in hands, 2 elemental rays left, 84 bolts left, 18 hp, 3 Wisdom damage, grappled]

4. Lola: unloaded heavy crossbow readied, wand of CLW 5 charges left, 3 channel energy left, 79 bolts left, call lightning 2 bolts left over the next 0.7 minutes

5. Fiendish Crocodile (Big C)

6. Masked Man in Green Robes (F1): 7 hp damage (2 are nonlethal)

7. Purple Robed Man (C3)

8. Evan Prost: loaded slingstaff readied, 3 regular bullets left, 40 crossbow bolts left, sunrod in boot, Elixir of Vision 58.7 min left, comatose, cannot act

I am absolultely beside myself. Cannot believe i forgot how much space the croc took up... i have to think.

EDIT: Hope I can do this. Using ray attack. Want to use scortching ray or burning hands, but both require somatic spell component which cannot be used while grappled. Hopefully a ray attack might be enough if his concentration check works.

 

Marcus hopes a sudden shock will losen the crocs grip.

Concentration succeeds, but Marcus still needs a ranged touch attack to hit the croc with the spell...

Round 6 Continued

Marcus hopes a sudden shock will loosen the croc's grip. He manages to maintain enough composure to cast an elemental ray, but the wrenching grasp of the croc's jaw's spoils his aim [concentration succeeds, ranged touch attack misses].

The crocodile executes a "death roll," flipping its victim over and biting down hard [7 hp damage and Marcus is prone].

There's no sound from the bottom of the pit, so no one can be sure what the Faceless One is doing.

C3 casts defensively and unleashes a sheet of blinding color at Cyrius [needs DC15 Will save to avoid being stunned for one round].

With the crocodile's attention on Marcus, Tex takes the opportunity to stand up. Then he hacks at the beast with his axe, but the wily creature avoids his swing [miss].

ACTIVE EFFECTS
Spells in effect:

1. F1's Flaming Sphere at 1104: ? rounds left

2. Marcus' Created Pit at 0204 to 0305: D16 Reflex save at +2 required at the edges, 4 rounds left

Round 7

Worrel steps close and swings his sword at the summoned crocodile, sacrificing some accuracy in order to hit the monster with more force. The sharp edge of his weapon leaves a neat slice flayed from the beast [16 hp damage]

Cyrius stands still, stunned by the blinding lights.

Marcus takes one for the team and smashes the alchemist's fire against the crocs head. Both he and the creature burst into flames. The sacrifice proves worthwhile, though, as the creature disappears from existence [6 hp damage each and the crocodile is unsummoned; Marcus is on fire]

With the crocodile gone, Lola moves to where she can see the last remaining robed man and blasts him with lightning. The bolt whistles through the air before arcing through its target with a macabre ZZZAP [12 hp damage, but the man somehow remains standing].

There's still no sound from the bottom of the pit, so no one can be sure what the Faceless One is doing.

Nearly cooked by the lightning, C3 still manages to cast a final spell at Cyrius. As the sheet of flames bursts from his hands, he collapses to the ground, dead [Cyrius takes 5 hp fire damage, Reflex DC15 for half].

Tex picks up his bow and sheathes his axe. Think that wizard is coming back, or are we done here?

ACTIVE EFFECTS

1. F1's Flaming Sphere at 1104: ? rounds left

2. Marcus' Created Pit at 0204 to 0305: D16 Reflex save at +2 required at the edges, 3 rounds left

Marcus will roll on the floor (full round) attempting to extinguish the flames. Once extinguished he will crawl to the pit (move), close enough to see the man, and throw (standard) the alchemist fire at him.

Fortune favors Cyrius as his reflexes throw him out of the worst of the fiery spell, taking only 2 hp of damage.

Addendum: He then ventures to 0902, and possibly further depending on what he sees in the next room.

Round 8

Worrel moves back from the pit and its occupant, closer to Lola. Mitra, bearer of light into darkness, please heal my companions and myself!, he calls in prayer before connecting to the divine energy granted by Mitra [all party members healed 14 hp].

Cyrius ventures into the next room. Two long, wooden tables dominate the chamber. They run along the length of the room, pushed up against opposite walls, and are covered with a variety of beakers, alchemical tools, and other devices. A few glass containers bubble with materials of a variety of colors, from a boiling green sludge to a fizzing, effervescent blue liquid. Several bookshelves filled with tomes occupy one section of the wall. Beside the shelves stands an intact human skeleton. A few glistening organs, a heart, a set of lungs, and a liver writhe and pulse within the skeleton’s rib cage. In the middle of the chamber stands a large, black iron cauldron. A thick layer of wax seals it shut.

Since nothing in the laboratory seems immediately dangerous, Cyrius continues on. He follows a zigzagging corridor until he can get a complete view of the room with Marcus' pit. Aside from the pit, the room is cramped with two sets of bunk beds, a small writing table, and several stools. A single torch casts light across the room from a sconce between the beds.

Marcus rolls on the floor and extinguishes the flames. Then he pulls out another alchemist's fire [since you were already on the ground, I let the rolling take only a standard action, leaving a move to retrieve the alchemist's fire]

Having one bolt left, Lola zaps into the pit where she thinks the Faceless One is. A yelp suggests she guessed right [but he made the save, so 4 hp damage].

After the yelp, there's no sound. Is anyone naive enough to think one lightning bolt finished off the Faceless One?

Tex is not particularly naive, so he moves right up to the edge of the pit to check. Aha, he's moved into the opposite corner! Tex reports, launching an arrow into the pit. Curses! Missed! he further announces. He manages to avoid slipping into the pit, fortunately.

Lola will take this time to reload her crossbow and ready it for when the guy comes out of the pit.

Round 9

Worrel moves up behind Marcus and Tex, ready for when he can attack the Faceless One.

Cyrius manifests his mind blade in longsword form and stands ready to attack.

Marcus, making a point to avoid the columns, crawls up behind Tex. From there he throws the fire into the pit trying for where Tex indicated. His aim is true and the Faceless One emits an involuntary shout as he catches fire [6 hp damage]

Lola takes the time to reload her crossbow and ready it for when the guy comes out of the pit.

Looking into the pit, Tex announces Hah! Good shot Marcus! He's still on fire! [In other words, the Faceless One tried and failed to extinguish the flames]

Tex shoots an arrow into the pit, trying for accuracy over damage this time. Again, though, the Faceless One's magical protections are too powerful [miss]. Tex does manage to avoid falling into the pit.
