[LoB] Inside the tower!!!

Post by shai-hulud » Mon Mar 31, 2008 1:44 am

Mecano heals up Nine: 4, then 6 (Nine is at 1 hp, Mecano has 1 infusion left for the day)

The door to the tower is in fact locked, but Phantom unlocks it after two minutes. Opening the door leads to a large foyer with a spiral staircase leading up.

Still kneeling besides Nine: "Nine, can you move? I have never seen so much damage before..."

Nine slowly moves to follow the others into the Tower.

I try to deduce, and look for, any secret doors here.

I thought there might be more room in here. Or does this room look to take up hte whole of the tower?

Kyberious notices twenty-seven magical auras visible in this main portion of the keep. Concentrating for an additional round, he places all of them on the walls (one of them is continuous all around the walls). One more round, and he has discovered the auras present. They range in strength from faint to moderate. The large aura, spanning the entire building is a moderate abjuration that appears to be some form of generic fortification for architecture. Of the remaining twenty-six, most of them are transmutations, much like the transmutation magic present outside the tower. The final four are illusions (all four illusions are moderate, indicating mid-level magics). Based on his spellcraft, Kyberious figures at least one of them to be a Permanent Image, although the exact nature of the image cannot be determined. Because of the size of these illusions, each one spans a quarter of the keep, travelling all the way up the walls, so it is difficult to determine exactly where the origin of each spell might be or what it is intended to conceal.

As far as the width of this area, no, it does not appear to take up as much space as the tower itself. The tower would likely be much larger (although no one has any Knowledge: Architecture and Engineering for a better estimate).

As Nine is searching the walls, Phantom is searching the floor, and Kyberious is investigating auras, Mecano spots the carpet move slightly of its own volition (likely another animated object, although it seems it may have taken notice of the group, which the rest of the animated objects had not).

"There is much arcane power here. Most is transmuting one thing to another, some are illusions. They are hiding something - image pulled over your eyes. Image over each quarter of the walls. We must see through it!" Kyberious will go and run his hands across one of the walls, trying to disern about the illusion.

Nine Mumbles..."huh.. Carpet? I wonder... Nah, nevermind"


He's still looking fora secret panel, and with Kybeious' info about the illusions, will try to work thorugh them. keeping half an eye on the carpet.

The carpet jumps into action and flies over to Kyberious. It wraps itself around Kyberious, dealing 1 hp non-lethal. Kyberious is grappled.

Mecano is the only one who noticed its movement in time to act in the surprise round.

Geez, these warforged sure don't care about suspicious moving objects...

With an audible sigh, Mecano moves one square NW, and swings at the pesky Carpet with his sharrash.

Perhaps the carpet is just too thick, or perhaps Mecano is trying to avoid catching a piece of Kyberious as he swings, but he misses the rug with his powerful blade.

The carpet won initiative. It begins wrestling Kyberious, dragging him 15' from his previous location (this movement provokes an attack of opportunity from Mecano, should he decide to take it).

Validation is not complete, but I will pause until Mecano decides if he will take the attack or not.

Kyberious is EXTREMELY unlucky! I'm sorry Drac, but there is little I can do for you in this situation. Essentially, that was a bull rush attempt. I rolled Mecano's attack, and it was a natural 20. I rolled the d% to see who it hit (there is a 25% chance in a bull rush attempt that an attack of opportunity hits the defender instead). I rolled in that 25%, so Kyberious was the unlucky recipient of the attack. I rolled your fortification, and unfortunately, it did not protect you. Mecano's swing confirmed with a 26 and the critical dealt 45 damage!!! Ouch!

To complete the validation, the carpet releases Kyberious and flies back a few feet from the corpse. That is a separate movement which also provokes an attack of opportunity from Mecano, but he has none left this round.

Initiative order is Phantom, Nine, Mecano.

Again, sorry draconas.

As pieces of Kyberious flies all over the place, Mecano wonders what happened.

Surely there was some basic flaw in Kyberiou's design, as no warforged could be reduced into components in just one good blow.
Yes, the structural integrity has been compromised... most likely at the mourn land creation forge. And that carpet must have damaged him some more.

Phantom goes invisible in hopes that his invisibility will prevent the rug from anticipating his attack. Of course, the rug has no eyes, so it is a mystery how it sees anything in the first place, unless it can see without eyes. Once invisible, Phantom takes a 5' step (to be within sneak attack range) and fires off an eldritch blast, originally aiming for the rug's vital organs, until he decides that rugs don't have vital organs and just fires the blast at it in general (still no sneak attack). Unfortunately, Phantom's aim is off and the blast flies off to hit the wall.

Mecano moves to within 10' of the devilish Rug, and tries to tear it to pieces with sharrash, hoping it stands still long enough to do so.

Nine goes up two steps on the stairs, to use Higher Ground, and attacks the carpet with short sword.

As Nine heads up the stairs, he walks over the carpet, which tries to grab him. He stabs it with his short sword, foiling the grapple attempt and continues towards the stairs. As he walks up the steps, he activates the trap.

A giant mouth appears above him, "Ridgell, I knew you would come! But that is no longer the way, oh no! Haha! I knew you would fall for it because..." The voice simply ends abruptly, not giving any indication of who Ridgell is/was or why this was done.

Above Nine's position, a loud rumbling can be heard, he jumps from the stairs just in the nick of time as the ceiling collapses upon the staircase. Interestingly, behind the rubble, a room is revealed.

Mecano moves in range of the rug, but his swing does not quite catch the rug with the blade, and the battering only knocks out some dust.

The rug heads towards the newly opened room. Nine has already used his attack of opportunity (to prevent the grapple check), but Mecano takes another swing (natural 1) and misses horribly. The rug flies in and wraps itself around one of the columns.

You can use a double movement to get to the rug, but that is 60 feet away. You would have no action left. Additionally, you cannot check for traps AND get to the rug, as checking for traps is done every 5' square, taking a full round action each square. It would take you twelve rounds to check for traps and get to the rug's current position in the other room.

Phantom rushes in to the room where the carpet flew, and while he moves within the carpet's reach, it does not attack him. Instead, it is firmly wrapped around the pillar in the room, appearing to be trying to carry the pillar away?!? Very odd!
