The only magic is the two vials of dark, oily substance which shimmers when shaken.

Rorsa responds, "No, I was not aware that there was a Red keycharm."

Shard will take the red keycharm and add it to the rest. "Let's take what we can here.

Shard will wander over to look at the rack of swords and the shield. "We must remember this room, as these metals may be usable"

"Rorsa, these other wolves, are they far into the caves?"

OOC: So far, we have 2 Blue keycharms, a brown keycharm, a green keycharm, and a red keycharm. Did I miss any?

Rorsa replies, "I do not know. I have only heard their cries. There is some sort of half-wolf beast they created with their experiments. It guards against me from entering. Should you help me overcome it, I would be willing to give you the pearl I wear around my neck. I am told it possesses arcane abilities, although I do not know what they are."

Assuming the party is content with the loot from that room, continuing the way Rorsa indicated brings the group to a hallway which leads to another room that looks much like the previous. It possesses a square panel with blue, green, yellow, and orange slots. Rorsa says, "The Green one will take us to the wolves."

Shard and Yahjhank hear the sounds of wolves coming from down the new corridor which goes straight about 30 feet, then veers off diagonally to the left. Rorsa waits to see what you will do.

"Are they friendly, Rorsa? Should we continue?" asks Yahjhank.

"My guess is that the half wolf beast is unfriendly. Prepare yourselves, since I doubt this is what we expect."

Shard will ready his spiked chain and use the green keycharm.

"It does not surprise me to find a man-made abomination in this place. We must put the tortured beast to rest."

Tracker, after the last fight, decides to not draw his sword, but instead ready the bow he picked up. He commands Wolf to stay close to him, planning to unleash him on any opposition when needed.
OUT OF CHARACTER
Actually, can Tracker use the bow? There was no arrows found with the rest, was there. If not, then Tracker will just use his sword, but be more careful about it this time.

The group quietly heads in the direction Rorsa mentioned. Rorsa takes the lead, tiptoeing down the passage.

As if not knowing people are trying to thread quietly, Yahjhank walks as he usually does following the rest.

Move Silently is none or in negative due to armor.

Rorsa moves very slowly ahead with everyone following. As she rounds the corner, a creature springs on her.

This creature has the shape of a wolf, but plates of black marble have been fused to its flesh. In addition to the stone armor that shields its flanks, its muzzle has been replaced by an elongated maw filled with row upon row of obsidian teeth.

Rorsa snaps at the approaching creature, but her bite does not seem to injure it much. The creature bites in return and Rorsa cries in shock and pain. The creature manages to pull Rorsa down!

From the looks it's 10 ft by 10 ft, hope its more so we can move around and give some primed interests in return to the critter.

Yes, Rorsa is large. Tracker knows that she is an Awakened Dire Wolf.

Anyone who is trying to move past Rorsa will provoke an attack of opportunity (unless they tumble).

I will be posting tomorrow (sorry, I have been busy lately) so if Tracker has not posted an action by then, he will stand around doing nothing.

Sorry all, have had a bad stomach bug for a while.

Tracker still has his bow ready, but cannot see a way to get a shot in to the creature without risking Rorsa. He comands Wolf to stay by his side, as the cramped quarters are no place for him to be.

Kaito casts bless, then attempts to find somewhere to hide in the shadows. She moves around the corner to avoid detection.

Tracker waits for a moment to move in to attack, but Rorsa's girth gives him pause.

The creature bites Rorsa again, drawing quite a bit more blood.

Shard takes his chances and moves past Rorsa and the creature, swinging back at the creature from behind it, but not knowing quite how to wield the spiked chain, he misses terribly.

Yahjhank waits for Rorsa to move out of the way, but the opportunity does not come.

Rorsa gets up, but the creature already expended its attack of opportunity against Shard, but missed. Rorsa bites at the creature, but concentrating so hard on defense, Rorsa's attack misses. Then, Rorsa crouches down and says, "Yahjhank, yet on my back. With your long weapon, the both of us can attack at the same time."

Kaito delays her action until the end of the round (you ready an action for a condition or delay your action until after something or someone else's initiative. So, you will go after Yahjhank from now on.

Tracker continues holding his action, waiting for a clear shot with his bow, but Rorsa is completely in the way.

The creature, thinking that Shard is trying to sneak by it, turns and snaps at the monk. Its powerful jaws nearly crush the life from Shard [9 hp damage]. Shard finds himself flipped onto his back (tripped) and the world begins to speed by him (under the effects of a Slow spell, crit failed the save). The creature has opened himself up for Kaito's attack.

Shard takes a swing at the creature from the ground. He hits the creature, but his fist does not seem to deal any damage.

Yahjhank, unable to find a position from which to swing his massive weapon, instead stays back (I did not receive an action for him, so I am playing him as cautious).

Next, Kaito rushes in to take advantage of the opening the creature left. She swings her warhammer, but the creature's stony body deflects the blow.

Finally, Rorsa attacks around Kaito, taking advantage of Shard's flank. Rorsa, once again, is concentrating on defense, and misses her mark.

Yahjhank would allow Rorsa to back off a bit as he slides between the dire wolf and the wall, as he tries to attempt a reach attack on the creature.

Will try to attack if possible.

As Yahjhank begins sliding between the wolf and the wall, Rorsa repeats, "Really, hop on. We will be able to attack together"
OUT OF CHARACTER
Look up two validations if you are not sure what she is talking about. Rorsa asked that Yahjhank hop on her back earlier.

Tracker still has no shot, so remains still waiting for the appropriate time to act.

With Shard on the ground, the creature turns its attention to Rorsa, who is still the largest threat. The attack misses.

Again, Shard swings at the creature. His fist bounces harmlessly off the creature's stone skin.

Yahjhank jumps upon Rorsa's back, unaware that mounting a steed is difficult (succeeded on a DC 20 ride check). Swinging his weapon, though, he misses terribly.

Kaito moves in and repairs Shard (succeeded on the Concentration check, repaired 4 hp).

Finally, Rorsa attacks, her powerful jaws chipping away at the creature's stone form. The creature holds its ground against Rorsa's attempt to bring it to the ground. The creature looks like one more strike from Rorsa's powerful jaws will bring it down for good.
