Round 10

Worrel continues to wait until he can attack the Faceless One...

Cyrius stands ready to attack the Faceless One when the opportunity presents itself...

Marcus stands and asks Tex to get behind him. Going to cast burning hands when he comes up. Marcus stows his crossbow. Marcus' pit spell ends, bringing the Faceless One to the surface and triggering an end to Worrel's and Cyrius' waiting...

Worrel marches into the room and attacks the Faceless One, but misses [attack roll total = 19].

Cyrius also moves up and attacks. Like Worrel, he has no success [attack roll total = 23].

In spite of the occluded view, Lola shoots her crossbow. The shot bounces off the intervening wall [attack roll total = 17].

In a surprising display of agility, the Faceless One tumbles away from Cyrius and Worrel [acrobatics checks = 21 and 21]. Cyrius is not fooled and gets in a swing with his mind blade, but misses once again [AOO attack roll total = 12]. From his new position down the hall, the Faceless On casts a spell, aiming between Worrel and Cyrius. Sticky webs erupt, filling the surrounding room and corridors [Cyrius, Worrel, Tex, and Marcus need Reflex saves vs DC17 to avoid being grappled; see below for more effects]. The Faceless One's flaming sphere disappears and he burns a little more before the alchemist's fire goes out [1 hp damage].

Tex finds himself entangled in the web [failed reflex save]. He twists and strains, though, and manages to break free [made grapple check as a standard action]. Realizing he might still be able to shoot at the Faceless One next round, he remains where he is.

OUT OF CHARACTER
Had to make a lot of rolls this round, so I did them in the DM sheet. I posted results above so you would have an idea of how hard it is to hit the Faceless One.

 

ACTIVE EFFECTS
Spells in effect:

1. Bless: all party members +1 morale to attack and +1 to saves vs. fear, 1.6 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.

Round 11

1. Marcus Tilsworth: nothing in hand, 1 elemental ray left, 4 alchemists fire left, 84 bolts left, 17 hp, 3 Wisdom damage, needs a Reflex save vs DC17 to avoid being grappled

2. Worrel: longsword and shield readied, 42 arrows left, Smite Evil 1 left, Lay on Hands 2 left, light (from Marcus) on longsword 47.7 min left, Divine Bond 3.7 min left, 14 hp damage, needs a Reflex save vs DC17 to avoid being grappled

3. Cyrius of the Sudden Blade: mind blade longsword readied, 23 bolts left, needs a Reflex save vs DC17 to avoid being grappled

4. Lola: unloaded heavy crossbow readied, wand of CLW 5 charges left, 3 channel energy left, 78 bolts left

5. Masked Man in Green Robes (a.k.a. the Faceless One) (F1): 18 hp damage (2 are nonlethal)

6. Evan Prost: loaded slingstaff readied, 3 regular bullets left, 40 crossbow bolts left, sunrod in boot, Elixir of Vision 58.3 min left, comatose, cannot act

7. Texudus TreeBender: longbow readied, 24 arrows left, 22 hp damage

Taken by surprise, Cyrius finds himself snared in the web, and strains to escape its clinging strands--

--and succeeds, emulating Texudus by waiting for another opportunity to engage the fearsome foe.

Marcus sees the tendrils of silk begin to spiral from the faceless one and is fast to react. In amazing grace he dips ducks and weaves as the sticky silk flies past and around him. Deft footwork and cunning manage to to save Marcus from getting stuck and being exposed.
OUT OF CHARACTER
Can I use Prestidigitation to create a flame on Tex's sword to cut through the web, or is that too advanced for that spell?

Worrel avoids being caught in the web. When he sees the Faceless trying to escape, Worrel bulls his way through the web in pursuit.

Just checking, is Lola's crossbow loaded or unloaded? You state she fired, but then it is loaded.

Thinking about using Prestidigitation, but realizing that what he wants to do is too complicated for the spell, Marcus decides to force his way through the web. Taking a step he immediately acknowledges his mistake.Image
He's now stuck in the web. We cannot let him get away!!!

If she can, Lola will reload the crossbow and then move into line with the others. If she cannot move and reload, she will just move. Either way, she wants to be behind Marcus.

Round 10

Thinking about using Prestidigitation, but realizing that what he wants to do is too complicated for the spell, Marcus decides to force his way through the web. Taking a step he immediately acknowledges his mistake. He's now stuck in the web. We cannot let him get away!!!

Worrel avoids being caught in the web. When he sees the Faceless One trying to escape, Worrel bulls his way through the web in pursuit.

Taken by surprise, Cyrius finds himself snared in the web. He strains to escape its clinging strands and succeeds, emulating Texudus by waiting for another opportunity to engage the fearsome foe.

Lola moves into line with the others, avoiding the sticky webs and grabby pillars. Then she begins reloading her crossbow [she'll need to use one move action next round to finish reloading, leaving her with another move or standard action after that]

With Worrel now threatening him, the Faceless One opens the door behind him. Worrel takes the opportunity to swing at the wizard, but misses [AoO attack roll total = 22]. Beyond the door, Worrel can see that boxes and crates fill a small room, leaving only a narrow alley to cross. Kegs of water, boxes of rations, and other mundane gear are arranged in neat, orderly piles. Some of the gear is familiar, since it includes Cyrius' backpack and the other missing loot the party had been storing in their carts! Only the briefest glimpse is possible, though, as the Faceless One steps through the door and slams it shut behind him.

Grumble, Tex grumbles, Can't shoot him if he's behind a door! He begins forcing his way through the web to follow Worrel. Like Marcus, he immediately realizes this was a mistake. He's also stuck in the web.

OUT OF CHARACTER
For the record, I read the web spell to require only one CMB check to move through it, not one per square. You either get stuck in the first square or make it all the way to your destination.

 

ACTIVE EFFECTS
Spells in effect:

1. Bless: all party members +1 morale to attack and +1 to saves vs. fear, 1.6 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.

Round 12

1. Marcus Tilsworth: nothing in hand, 1 elemental ray left, 4 alchemists fire left, 84 bolts left, 17 hp, 3 Wisdom damage, grappled by the webs

2. Worrel: longsword and shield readied, 42 arrows left, Smite Evil 1 left, Lay on Hands 2 left, light (from Marcus) on longsword 47.6 min left, Divine Bond 3.6 min left, 14 hp damage, in the area of webs but not currently grappled

3. Cyrius of the Sudden Blade: mind blade longsword readied, 23 bolts left, in the area of webs but not currently grappled

4. Lola: unloaded heavy crossbow halfway loaded, wand of CLW 5 charges left, 3 channel energy left, 78 bolts left

5. Masked Man in Green Robes (a.k.a. the Faceless One) (F1): 18 hp damage (2 are nonlethal)

6. Evan Prost: loaded slingstaff readied, 3 regular bullets left, 40 crossbow bolts left, sunrod in boot, Elixir of Vision 58.2 min left, comatose, cannot act

7. Texudus TreeBender: longbow readied, 24 arrows left, 22 hp damage, grappled by the webs

Worrel steps to the door and opens it. If the Faceless One is on the other side, Worrel attacks. Otherwise, Worrel stands ready to be attacked.

Yes, you know about it. You would also remember that it's dark back there.
