Simon N. (GM):GM: You fall back down the corridor; Aliegha-bear at the rear holds off the skeleton horde.
Suddenly a door to the right of Slaine is ripped open!
White Valyrian:ooc (what is the angel wing symbol on our token?)
Simon N. (GM):You see two hideous man-beasts, behind them a debris-strewn room with tattered sacks, rat bones and the half eaten remains of a giant rat.
OOC Bless effect
Jelly:OOC can someone please take a screenshot of this amazing scenario for the group? Can't seem to do it on my laptop.
Simon N. (GM):A man-beast lunges at Slaine, seeking to grab him and pull him into the room. Slaine what's your Parry?
Jelly:19 with shield
Simon N. (GM):=
Bad luck Slaine! You're grabbed
Jelly:I suppose I can't add the +2 from Bless? :-(
Simon N. (GM):Nope
Jelly:Since it's not an active roll
Simon N. (GM):The second man-beast lunges at you (at +1D)
Jelly:Oh dear :-(
Simon N. (GM):It bites and claws you
Laxus Draugnir:oh crap
Simon N. (GM):=
22 damage, what's your Soak?
Jelly:My soak is 12
Laxus Draugnir:oh noooooo
Simon N. (GM):Incapacitated, unless you want to use your 1/day Hero Point to reduce to Wound?
Jelly:I think that's definitely a good idea!
I'll use the HP
Simon N. (GM):OK take off an HP
Jelly:So I'm -1 on all dice?
Simon N. (GM):yup
Jelly:Just dice, not pips, right?
Simon N. (GM):oops Bil points out 1 off Inc is Severely Wounded -2 Dice

Laxus Draugnir:end turn
Simon N. (GM):#7 Slaine Uloc & Beskar
Jelly:Bill I think your mic is on?
Simon is there such a thing as Second Wind in Mini 6 or did Slaine just basically use it?
Droghall:i accidently turned it on for a second then off
Simon N. (GM):Beskar attacks man-beast with club
Jelly:Slaine will attack the remaining Manbeast, followed by Uloc and Beskar doing the same; unless he can regain health somehow.
I'll do them in that order.
Miss I believe
Simon N. (GM):Beskar 4D+2 Uloc 3D+2 as dashed
oh + another 2 fpr Bless
Laxus Draugnir:nice hit
Simon N. (GM):hit
Jelly:Bless is still on I believe?
Sorry forgot to add for the attacks
Simon N. (GM):However their clubs bounce harmlessly off the man-beast's enchanted hide!
So no point rolling for Beskar?
Or can he use his claws instead?
Simon N. (GM):The silver in Laxus' blade overcame the fell enchantment.
#18 Rollo heroically battles giant rats offscreen
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (oh shit they werebeast meaning they take half to non silver weapons)
Jelly:I suppose my minions will have to serve as meatshields then!
Simon N. (GM):=
Jelly:OOC the minis look so cute for those rats tho!

Laxus Draugnir:parry 21
Simon N. (GM):Paxon death roll
Laxus Draugnir:two attacks on the wereboar
Jelly:OOC oh i didn't see it was a wereboar, cool!

Simon N. (GM):hit
Laxus Draugnir:second roll was damage
Simon N. (GM):mortal wound
Jelly:OOC silly question possibly: what's the difference between a Manbeast and a Beastman?
Simon N. (GM):Manbeast was a player character class in early white dwarf. Man that can turn into beast
Laxus Draugnir:moves out of the room
Simon N. (GM):As they die you see they are turning back into a hairy naked man & woman
Laxus Draugnir:damn that must be early warhammer
Simon N. (GM):White Dwarf #8
Jelly:Oh I see, similar to a lycanthrope?
Laxus Draugnir:oh really early wrhammer
Simon N. (GM):pre-Warhammer
Jelly:(Nice hits btw Laxus!)
Laxus Draugnir:thanks to Slaine bless
Simon N. (GM):#7 Slaine
Jelly:Useful for something!
I suppose I'll cast heal on myself, if that's possible?
Simon N. (GM):OOC I'm inclined to go out of combat, but you need 6 rounds to cast Heal.
Jelly:Ok I'll go out of combat I think.
Simon N. (GM):Aliegha can hold them off for a while but not indefinitely
Jelly:For the moment at least.
Simon N. (GM):GM: OK, Rollo finishes off the rats
Pinella & Laxus get the north west door open
Laxus Draugnir:"Pinella please tell me thats a door out and not to another room"
Simon N. (GM):They see a chamber with two stone spikes jutting from the walls 3' up the walls. A skeleton lies between them with two spike sized punctures in its bronze breastplate.
Uloc & Beskar seize the fabulous wealth of the man-beasts as no one else wanted to search their room :)
Simon N. (GM):Jelly note Uloc gets a gold & diamond ring v 142 gp & 81 gp.
Jelly:Oooh, lizard bling!
Simon N. (GM):Beskar gets 49 gp
Jelly:They deserve it, to be fair!
Laxus Draugnir:(damn those werebeast are stacked XD)
Simon N. (GM):GM: assuming you take 6 rounds searching & healing, I'll do some rolls
Laxus Draugnir:"something tells me this is a trap room the only question is is it still operational?"
Pinella:"I agree - looks suspicious."
Jelly:Ok I'll roll to heal Slaine. Anyone else need healing?
Pinella:Paxon is dying
Droghall:ill help bear lady by swapping with her when she needs a rest
Jelly:Ok I'll roll for Paxon first
Simon N. (GM):=
Jelly:Maybe he can heal me back?
Simon N. (GM):Aliegha is starting to look ragged (1 wound)
Laxus Draugnir:maybe heal you first and get your dice back
Jelly:That's a good point!
Simon N. (GM):=
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (is the barrel still solid enough that i can toss it into the room?"
Simon N. (GM):=
Paxon still alive (just)
Jelly:Ok that's a pass as Slaine was severely wounded so just back to Wounded?
Simon N. (GM):ok
Jelly:I'll heal Paxon next, up one magic die again.
May I use a HP as well Simon and get an extra +6 and D6 I believe?
Simon N. (GM):just a +6 AFAIK
Simon N. (GM):=
It's a TN23 for the mortally wounded, so that's a pass?
Simon N. (GM):OK Paxon now stable, incapacitated
Droghall:"me no mind heal to"
Jelly:Can do Aliegha and Drog next.
Simon N. (GM):Uloc opens west door
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (can i take those man beast corpse and toss it into the stone spike room?)
TN15 for wounded or severely wounded.
Simon N. (GM):#31 - floor is scattered with incense sticks, ragged & torn ceremonial robes, & an old shattered treasure chest.
Jelly:Can I do a Religion check on the ceremonial robes and incense?
Aliegha:"Getting a bit tired here, RARRR"
Droghall:"me swap in"
Jelly:Please note you're both healed?
Drog and Aliegha
Jelly:Hmmm, what are thesse robessss?
Simon N. (GM):Ceremonial! :)
Jelly:(I'm still down a die from the Wound :-(
Simon N. (GM):Roll Perception Slaine
Jelly:Is that Wit based?
Simon N. (GM):yes
Simon N. (GM):Just pass - you notice a small wooden stopper jammed into a crack in the west wall.
Jelly:Possilby against his better judgement, Slaine decides to pull out the stopper.
I blame the blood loss!
Simon N. (GM):Slaine pulls out the stopper - the stone below it comes loose, revealing a cavity in which sits a potion vial.
Slaine will carefully pick up the potion
Simon N. (GM):Roll Magic (no penalty)
Simon N. (GM):GM: You're only meant to take wound penalties on actions BTW, not all rolls.
It's a healing potion
Jelly:Thanks GM, wasn't aware.
Slaine glugs back the potion.
Laxus Draugnir:"im sorry for leaving you like that Aliegha but i wouldnt do that if i know you couldnt take it"
Jelly:And I assume heals his remaining Wound?
Simon N. (GM):Slaine now unwounded yup
Uloc:"We should go, master!"
Jelly:Yessss, let us get out of this fell place"
Simon N. (GM):GM: Droghall is happily sweeping through skels w his maul - no damage to D yet
Laxus Draugnir:"Slaine the room ahead seemed booby trapeed by im cautious wheter or not is it still active or triggered"
OOC does Rollo have any sort of rogue skills apart from Seduction?
Rollo:winks at Pinella
Laxus Draugnir:"wait Pinella let me"
Droghall:"uloc beskar pick up wounded humans and go with slaine me come soon it easy more if you take wound humans"
Pinella:looks at door "It has brackets on this side - we could bar it and hold off the skeletons!"
Jelly:Uloc and Beskar follow Drog's instructions.
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (can i do a perception check on the room?)
Jelly:Do they need to make strength checks?
Simon N. (GM):ok Laxus
Rollo:fetches length of wood from barrel room
Simon N. (GM):@Jelly no
Laxus Draugnir:using one hero point for the perception
Simon N. (GM):GM: The spikes seem firmly embedded in the walls, no sign they can move. There is a 2' gap between their tips
They are 3' off the ground
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (can i duck the spikes?)
Simon N. (GM):The holes in the skel's armour would be 3' up if it were standing
OOC you can try Laxus :)
Laxus Draugnir:no roll
Simon N. (GM):=
Skels are trying to clamber over Droghall as he smashes away happily
Laxus Draugnir:moves sliding underneath the spikes
Simon N. (GM):Laxus slides under the spikes, nothing bad happens.
Laxus Draugnir:sigh "i hope nothing happens"
Jelly:Slaine and Co will follow
Laxus Draugnir:tries to open the door
Simon N. (GM):The north door creaks open
You see a long tunnel with the savaged corpse of a toad-man lying on it.
Laxus Draugnir:"stick close to me Pinella"
Simon N. (GM):Through a doorway to the east/right you hear wolvish snarls
Jelly:OOC are there actually any normal human baddies in this dungeon lol
Simon N. (GM):& the sound of something being torn apart
Laxus Draugnir:"great more were beast"
Jelly:(I think it might be Slaine's patience!)
OOC oh that's fine, they're just doing a bit of DIY!
Simon N. (GM):GM: Laxus sees three huge glowing dogs savaging a bullywug corpse. A dead dog lies beside it.
A ladder lies on the floor.
Laxus Draugnir:ooc(holy shit is the room a pit?)
ooc (can i lock the door?)
Simon N. (GM):Four terrifued looking bullywugs are on a ledge 12' up on the far side of the room, croaking fearfully.
Jelly:OOC I'm sorry but I have not sympathy for them after what happened earlier1
Simon N. (GM):You don't have a key or thieves' tools so no I think
Jelly:OOC could just shut the door and we'll move on?
Simon N. (GM):GM: Aliegha & Droghall can close & bar the door to the spike room
Laxus Draugnir:closing the door quietly "everyone move pass me ill keep watch this door"
Simon N. (GM):The skels scratch on the door but are far too light to get it open
Laxus roll Agility (stealth or pickpocket) TN 8
Thank you Bless
Simon N. (GM):Laxus quietly closes the door without arousing the hounds.
Laxus Draugnir:Sword ready Laxus wait until everyone gets past him whispering everyone to stay quiet
Simon N. (GM):GM: The north door is ajar, opening into a foul smelling kennel.
Straw & dog poo
Jelly:Slaine tells Beskar to keep away from there.
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (what bout the other room?)
OOC what about it?
Laxus Draugnir:ooc no one gonna open it?
Jelly:OOC I can't stop comparing Uloc and Beskar to these two! (Most of you too young to remember!).
Rollo:"I can see light from under the east door"
I'll send Beskar
Rollo:Lantern light illuminates a room with a large table and chairs. A black bearded dwarf is sat at the table.
Simon N. (GM):He looks up. "And who might ye be?"
Slaine hurries forward.
Apologiessss. We are ssssimply trying to find a way out.
OOC sorry guys I've had a bit of a mind-wipe since last time, I can't remember our main objective?
Simon N. (GM):"I be Trob. You want through here, eh?"
GM: Trob stands and walks over to a bell hanging on the north wall.
Jelly:OOC I had some very stressful family stuff to deal with recently so brain went on reset!
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (find and apprehend/kill Dark Ordo the sorceress)
Simon N. (GM):GM: yup
Laxus Draugnir:(stop him!!!!)
Simon N. (GM):Trob pauses: "What?"
Jelly:Beskar will apprehend Trob.
Won't that alert thisss whole complex?
We are currently fleeing from a horde of sssssssskeletonssss
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (my thoughts exactly jelly)
Simon N. (GM):"Got to ring the bell to tell the others you're here. The mistress'll want to charge a toll..."
Simon N. (GM):Trob's eyes widen as Pinells enters the room.
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (tolls?)
Pinella:"He's one of them! Dark Odo's men!"
Jelly:A price, like a tax.
Jelly:eg toll bridge.
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (gotcha)
Jelly:Not to be confused with troll bridge!
Pinella:The south door opens, you see a man in scarlet monk robes.
Jelly:OOC oh look Bill it's some gaming crossover!
Simon N. (GM):Monk: "What is the meaning of this intrusion?!"
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (lol i no nothing XD)
Jelly:OOC one of Kasumi's colleagues?
OOC our other game Muizz
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (no bad)
Jelly:OOC Laxus has higher persuasion than Slaine I believe so perhaps you'd better explain?
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (a monk of tiamat )
Simon N. (GM):GM: Beskar roll agility pls
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (im still guarding the back group)
Simon N. (GM):=
Simon N. (GM):Trob goes to ring the bell but Beskar blocks him
Jelly:OOC what shall Slaine say, group decision?
OOC Simon may we have a moment ooc to confer?
Droghall:ooc not a bell thats illegal
Simon N. (GM):GM: Mudras steps back into his room - you may confer
Laxus Draugnir:ooc (i thing is to ask how much is the toll?)
Jelly:OOC ok I will do but what shall I say is our business here?
We've obviously freed some captives.....
Simon N. (GM):Trob's eyes widen at the sight of Droghall
Droghall:"no ring ring it bad"
Simon N. (GM):Mudras exits
Jelly:OOC bugger he's gone to tell the others I think.
Jelly:OOC I think the time for subtlety has probably past tbh
Laxus Draugnir:"close and lock that door Uloc"
Simon N. (GM):Trobb: "OK, no ring bell... if you want out, there's a secret door there."
Jelly:Uloc will close and lock door.
Simon N. (GM):You don't have any keys
Laxus Draugnir:"i rather not can i meet this Dark Odo personally?"
Jelly:In that case Uloc will just close the door.
Yesss, we wish to pay our respectssssss to the Misstressss.
Laxus Draugnir:"baricade the door Uloc with the tables or chairs or stuff"
Simon N. (GM):Trob: "You want to meet Dark Odo? Why?"
Jelly:Uloc will do as Laxus instructsm using the chairs inside the room to bar the door.
Simon N. (GM):GM: You can hear doors opening to the east & movement
Laxus Draugnir:"i wish to make a deal with her and i may ask why is her froup doing in this abandoned ruin int he first place?"
Simon N. (GM):Trob: "Mudras must have gone to tell Odo you're here... OK follow me."
Simon N. (GM):Trob: "We're looking for a way to get the Sandlandder treasure without waking all the skels..."
"we do bad"
Simon N. (GM):Trob leads you through a spartan bedchamber.
Droghall:"bones break much"
Laxus Draugnir:"it means nothing Dwarf friend"
Simon N. (GM):Trob opens the far door and steps through.
A bunch of adventurer types are assembled round a huge pile of silk cushions on which lounges a beautiful dark sorceress puffing on a hookah,
To the north coloured lights shine through the mist of a waterfall.
Dark Odo rises from her lounge.
Odo: "Greetings, travellers. What brings you to my home?"
The chamber is sumptuously furnished with rugs and tapestries, a rather tacky statuette of a mage holding a crystal ball made of real pearl stands atop a chest by the east wall.
Simon N. (GM):The lights come from coloured lanterns on a ledge along the north wall, shining through the waterfall spray.
Laxus Draugnir:"i thank you for the opportunity of this meeting i wish to make a deal with you in exchange for my group exiting from these ruins"
Simon N. (GM):Odo: "Oh yes?"
Jelly:OOC we should get them to go back and open the skeleton door :-)
Simon N. (GM):Laxus roll perception
Laxus Draugnir:spending one hero point
Simon N. (GM):Laxus you see 2 toadmen watching you from the pool.
Jelly:(I think Bless is still on?)
Laxus Draugnir:"curentlly your head is wanted by the atlantean baron of Tallas, if i may ask why is that?"
Simon N. (GM):Odo: "Borealis? I've never done him any harm."
"I did once serve his enemy, Baroness D'hmis, but we had a falling out."
"Did he send you here?"
Laxus Draugnir:"No rumors only why would i be a service to an atlantean lord"
Pinella:whispers "Don't trust her Laxus - she's a powerful Sorceress - she charmed Amdor!"
Simon N. (GM):Odo nods. "Of course."
Laxus Draugnir:does a thumbs up behind his back
Simon N. (GM):Odo puffs on the hookah. "This Virughan Violet lotus expands the senses... a can hear hundreds of skeletons roaming the catacombs, sigh"
Simon N. (GM):Odo: "You must have killed the guardian - the Sussurus?"
Droghall:"me Finnish him"
Slaine:The ssssssusssssurussssssssssssssssss, yesssssssssssssssssssssssss!
Droghall:"me also smash a lot of bones"
Laxus Draugnir:"my apoligies my lady one of our own got to greedy for his own good rest assured he got what he deserves"
Simon N. (GM):Odo: "I see."
Laxus Draugnir:"i wish for an alliance between our groups i doubt you want to start a fight in your very own room"
Simon N. (GM):"Alliance? To what end?"
ooc will be ending shortly for today
Laxus Draugnir:"i know you make many enemies from your previous mistresss as well with the atlanteans i doubt you find peace in this part of the Claw"
Slaine:OOC Muizz just to check are you doing a double bluff on Odo?
OOC understood Simon.
OOC is our aim to kill her by letting loose the skeletons or do you think an alliance is actually a good idea?
Laxus Draugnir:ooc trying to get our group out is my current priority
Slaine:OOC got it.
Laxus Draugnir:ooc skelentons and backstabbing later
"i am not only and elf but a boble of Imystral and knight of the silver sword my name alone can help you and your group gain sanctuary in elven lands"
ooc damn rushed type
Simon N. (GM):Odo: "That's very kind of you. I shall consider your offer. For now, you may depart via the prison cells, since the southern route is presumably blocked by six hundred and fifty skeletons."
Droghall:"you have food? velo hungry"
Laxus Draugnir:sigh? "did the skelentons spread that far?*"
Slaine:You are too kind, Missssstresssss.
Simon N. (GM):Odo ignores Droghall. Velo roots around in a knapsack & finds some iron rations.
OOC ok I'm stopping now, hopefully have Matt back next time
Have 4 CP & 1 HP
Slaine:OOC thanks Simon! So is the skellies escaping a regular occurrence? Odo didn't seem surprised!
Laxus Draugnir:she seem to have high psychic energy from smoking the pipe
Simon N. (GM):She knew the Susurrus kept them asleep
Slaine:And actually she's probably high level enough to be able to deal with them anyway!
Bye Simon, same time next week?
Slaine:Bye Bill and Muizz!
White Valyrian:bye Simon
