Robin pulled his great bow up and took aim at one of the staffs sticking out of a pillar. With a fluid motion he drew back the arrow and let fly...

Re: D&D ADVENTURE! Quest for the Abbot's Cheese

The arrow sped across the room, hitting the urn-like object above the staff atop the pillar. It takes a chip out of the surface, and Waldemar's eyes narrowed in anger. "No more talking then - time for you all to die!"

The mouse-man raised his eyes to the roof. "Malthazar, they are yours now, summon your kin and do your work!"

The image of Waldemar wavered and faded, leaving the platform bare and silent. Overhead, the roof glistened as moisture began to condense on the tilework. The beads of water start trickling upwards, forming rivulets, pooling together into puddles that steamed. From each boiling puddle came first, clawed hands, followed by a long, ugly face, a thin, malformed body, bat-like wings and a pair of scrawny legs with a forked tail that flicked. The creatures appeared to be formed from steam itself, their bodies partly immaterial, though their wicked claws looked all too solid. Six of them dropped down from the roof, unfurled their wings and swooped to attack!

Robin pulled one of the new sheaf arrows from his quiver, aimed at one of the bat winged creatures and let fly.

Re: D&D ADVENTURE! Quest for the Abbot's Cheese

Bari looked at Robin, whose eyes and bow did not waver. "She turns into a cow?" Seeing the ranger unaffected by this strangely arousing tidbit of information, Bari sighed. How could he be so unaffected? He had always been concerned about rangers - religion came hard to their type. At least this one wore shoes and didn't seem obsessed with crystals.

Suddenly, Bari became aware that the mousey little critter had stopped his soliloquy, only to be followed by Rambulge's desperate cry and the loosing of Robin's arrow.

"Wait, man!" Bari barked at Robin. "We can talk about this-"

Too late. The mouse disappeared, screaming threats, followed by the disturbing assembly of the steam daemons right before their eyes. "Shit, man! Now we're gonna have to fight more. How am I supposed to spread a message of love if you're gonna shoot every damn thing you see! There's more to love than just putting your shafts into everything..."

Bari hefted his mace and turned to face the door. "Guess you cats gonna need some tough love..."

 Spoiler: Bari's Actions
Bari will try to wait and see if the party in the room are able to move. If they still appear to be stuck to the floor, then Bari will cast Dispel Magic on the pillar closest to Seu.

If the party are able to move, then Bari will cast Prayer instead.
Regards,
Gaj

Re: D&D ADVENTURE! Quest for the Abbot's Cheese

"Bari, my friend, if I remember correctly, Marvin used to say that for love just like for anything else "after words comes action!", (shouting) I've had enough of this heretical non-sense !"
Seu looked at the creatures taht had spawned before them and he turned to the nearest pillar...
"Bufo, try to smash those urns with your sling NOW !"

 Spoiler: Seu's actions
Ok gents, nice to be back for fight !

Since Seu is not already engaged in combat, he will try to smash the clay pillar nearest to him with his sword if it's within its range , if it's not and if Bufo can't take them with his sling, he will throw his shield as hard as he can on it...


Thinking about their rat looking opponent, Sue wondered where the hellhound pup had gone and if it could be of any help, an uneducated hellhound pup would certainly want to play with a mouse...

Seeing the Paladin attack the pillar brought Rambulge from his fruitless struggling- he drew his trusty cudgel and started whacking with all his might!

Re: D&D ADVENTURE! Quest for the Abbot's Cheese

 Spoiler: DM's NOTES
This is the current positioning of the party in accordance with the order they placed their actions. Bufo is in the alcove next to the iron grill door and Robin and Bari are still in the ogre room looking through the doorway.

Image[/URL]

One note on combat - Seu, Rambulge and Bufo can't currently move their feet due to the effects of the trap, which will give them penalties to combat. How big a penalty depends on what they are attacking and initiative order. The creatures attacking are flying and swooping, and if they attack within one initiative step of the hero, the hero can attack them with -8 to their roll. If they attack simultaneously, then the hero will have -4 to his attack roll. Let's see how it works out :D


The ranger, acting with astonishing speed, let fly an arrow that sped through the air, spearing a steaming creature through it's pinion, sending it crashing to the paved floor where it twitched, unable to move in the radius of the spell trap!

With a roar of sorrow and anger, Antheus lifted his sword and hacked mightily at the pillar next to him, causing chips of stone to fly. A terrible surge of electricity wracked his body, causing him to moan in pain even as he brought his blade down again for another fell stroke. More stonework crumbled before his rage.

The creature known as Malthazar chuckled as he raised his taloned hands high and summoned a storm of boiling water that showered down over all in the chamber. Bufo screamed and pushed his body back as far as it would go into his alcove, his feet caught fast by the sorcerous trap. The burning water stung his hands as he tried to cover his face and eyes. Sir Antheus, encased in his metal armour, endured the wrath of the storm with gritted teeth, the metal heating up fast and burning his skin where it touched. Rambulge had no shelter from the terrible rain, screaming and covering his face with hands that were soon red with burns.
Just as the boiling storm abated, with a terrible grin, another of the hateful creatures summoned his own storm of boiling water, dousing the adventurers all over again. With his face red and burning, Rambulge felt exhaustion and pain begin to overcome him. Bufo huddled in his alcove, the pain unbearable, whilst Antheus focused all his being on the lady, trying to push through the agony.

One of the flying creatures turned to the doorway where the ranger and cleric stood, and breathed a jet of scalding water right at the ranger. Ducking the worst of it, the ranger reached for another arrow...
Another of the creatures blasted Bari with a similar jet of burning hot water, causing him to grimace as the water burned his skin badly. One more blast, this one from a different creature, struck the ranger once again. He doggedly ignored the pain, focusing on the shot he was preparing to make. Bari readied himself for prayer - the rite was a long one, and one distraction would mean failure - that, the party could not afford!

Bufo, his hands terribly burnt, fumbled in his pouch for a bullet. Lodging it in the sling, he followed the Paladin's instructions, hurling the leaden lump at a nearby urn atop a pillar. The bullet struck, causing a crack to appear, from which greenish liquid trickled.

Rambulge, half-crazed with pain, struck at the pillar next to him with his club, sending masonry flying. The electrical shock he received in return came close to killing him - he gasped, as blood bubbled to his lips. He would not be able to take another hit.

Robin, the grim-faced ranger, ignored all distractions, though his burns hurt badly, and his companions were dying, he loosed another deadly shaft at one of the dipping, flitting figures, scoring a hit directly through whatever served as it's heart - the creature fell dead, a steaming pile that soon returned to the water it was made from.

Bari closed his eyes as his mind connected with the power of his deity. The wellspring of his faith was deep, and the power of the divine so much greater than the works of mere mortals. Using a part of that great power, the cleric opened his eyes, which were glowing white with holy fire once more, and pointing his finger at the pillar near the Paladin, he bellowed a holy incantation - "Follow that and see where it leads y'all!"
The pillar's power was halted in an instant, sending a tremor through the room. The cleric knew the effect may only last a short time, but for now, he could see his companions were feeling the effect already - though it took them a supreme effort of strength, they could move their feet ever so slightly!

Malthazar's cruel face looked with concern at his dead and dying cronies lying on the floor. He snarled at the remaining steam monsters, "Scald them, skin them, kill them and crush them! Death to the flesh ones!" The creatures circled and dipped, waiting for their chance to finish off the crippled party...

 Spoiler: QUEST NOTES
The pillar next to Seu has temporarily lost it's power. Anything more than shifting their position slightly will require a strength test from Rambulge, Seu and Bufo. The combat penalties are halved for them for now until the pillar reactivates in a randomly determined number of rounds.

The party's hit points currently stand at this amount:

HP
ANT: 10/45
BUF: 5/11
ROB: 12/30
RAM: 1/14
BAR: 12/24

Re: D&D ADVENTURE! Quest for the Abbot's Cheese

Bringing his left hand to his heart, covering his body with his shield , the paladin , still smoking from the steam and electrical shock, whispered :
"My dear Lady, I kneel to thee
for you are blessed and holy
your words are here to heal my wound
and bring our foes to final doom"

Seu thought "Thanks Master Bari, you may have earned us the little time we needed to escape death..."
Seeing how the pillar had lost its power thanks to the cleric's help Seu stroke the urn above him as hard as he could, hoping it was the source of the pillar.


 Spoiler: Seu'actions
Seu strikes the urn and lays his hands on himself (calm down Bari) for 10HP worth


"Now come one Imps ! Do not add cowardice to the disgrace your life is !

Rambulge reached for his potion of healing, the flesh on his fingers coming away as he popped the stopper from the vial.

The terribly wounded warrior sorcerer downed the contents and thanked the Four Winds for it's effects- the searing agony began to subside and his skin repaired before his eyes!

Re: D&D ADVENTURE! Quest for the Abbot's Cheese

Robin looked around at the injuries of the party, they were in a bad way but he had faith that they could deal with these creatures. Drawing another sheaf arrow from his quiver he continued to shoot at the winged creatures.

 Spoiler: actions
Robin is going to continue to shoot at the winged beasties. If any fall onto the ground and are trapped he will switch target to one that is still flapping around.
