    "Good, clear the path between that undead and me, and I shall have the remanents of it's soul!" After saying that, Sheng starts making complicated martial manouvers. Each move produces an orb of brilliant light, of different colours, that coalesce in a single, giant chromatic orb. At the end of the casting, Sheng hits the orb with a high kick, that sends it flying towards the Marrowshriek skeleton. The orb crashes on the creature unleashing radiant energy over it. The creature shrieks, as the power of the Thousand Suns bask it's unholy body.

    OOC: Chromatic Orb vs Marrowshriek, hits for 29 radiant dmg, and the MS is dazed (save ends). Move to L 22

    GM: Unfortunately, a dazed condition end's a grab :
    Effects that End a Grab: If you are affected by a condition that prevents you from taking opportunity actions (such as dazed, stunned, surprised, or unconscious), you immediately let go of a grabbed enemy.

    OOC: The archers aren't on the map because they are on the "third story" of the lighthouse, the floor of which is thirty feet (6 squares) up. I have to say no, but I do so reluctantly, because I'm fighting the curiosity to see how the party would do separated like that.

    You can, however, teleport to the second floor (which holds unknown dangers) in hopes that you can reach the third floor on your own to surprise the archers.

    As the Marrowshriek attacked him, the ronin gave as good as he got. He drew his katana, cold as winter, and cut deep into the undead.

    Free from it's grasp, Gensai drew his weapon again, and this time it hissed fire. The attack was off the mark, but his magic mark was not. "You will not hurt anyone else, Oni, or you will burn."

    Sheathing his blade, Gensai closed his eyes, and vanished.

    OOC: I don't think this is an issue anymore, but just in case: No one mark the Marrowshriek. I've got one bad ass damage reducing / damage dealing mark on him.

    GM: Put me anywhere on the second floor. Closer to getting to the third floor would be a preference, if Gensai would know that.


    Action Block, Mini-Stats


    Action Block

    Immediate Interrupt vs Marrowshriek: Frost Backlash vs reflex
    Attack: 1d20+15=35 CRIT (note: rolled the wrong damage on IC, but it doesn't matter)
    Damage: 3d8+7=31 +1D6=3 = 34
    Standard: Swordmage Shielding Fire

    • Target: Marrowshriek
    • Attack: 1d20+12=18 Miss
    • Damage: 2d8+10=0
    • Effect: The creature is marked as if from your Swordmage Aegis power until the end of the encounter. This does not end existing marks placed by your Swordmage Aegis power, and using your Swordmage Aegis power to mark another enemy does not end this mark. Another creature’s mark supersedes this one. Until the end of the encounter, when you reduce the damage the target deals using aegis of shielding, the target takes fire damage equal to the amount of damage your aegis of shielding power prevents.

    OOC: I know I've been MIA on this thread for a while, but I'm trying to work Gensai's Teleportation to the second floor into the story. To make matters worse, I'll be out of town beginning Thrusday, returning Tuesday (20th of September). I will not likely have internet access during this time. Apologies all around.

    I'll be in the Washington D.C. area. Anyone local to there?

    Sheng's arcane attack makes the Marrowshriek skeleton lose concentration for an instant. That instant is all Gensai needs. The blademater lands a blow on the boney creature and instantly disappears.

    Hankel swings at the thing wildly and moves away, hoping to distract one of the lesser skeletons so that TikChik can sneak up behind.

    The ploy works only half as well as was hoped. The Thri-kreen fells one of the skeletons standing next to Fenwick, but can't manage to connect with the other.

    The marrowshriek pursues Hankel, but is too dumfounded by Sheng's magic to do anything but stagger forward.

    The distracted skeleton chooses Riardon for a target. The choice, however, turns out to be a poor one as the skeletal soldier's blad glances off of the eladrin's tough armor.

    Arrows rain down once again from the battlements. Most fly wild and miss their targets, but one catches Fenwick in the shoulder.

    All the while, the iron defenders stand at the gate to the lighthouse, uncaring as to what goes on without, but clearly protective of their territory.
    GM: Sorry about being out of town, but I'm back

    The Second Floor: Tenchuu Only
    Gensai blinks back into the real world and feels a sudden sense of disorientation. He expected to appear at the foot of the steps to the third floor, but there are no stairs in sight. Instead, he is looking down a long corridor.
    Map
    Without, the noise of battle, some twenty feet below, carries on the evening air through the numerous arrow slits that dot the southern walls. Within, dry bones litter the floor, and everything is coated in a gossamer shroud of cobwebs and dust.

    In the southwest corner of the corridor, the decayed body of a dwarven sentry lies above a stack of barrels, the contents of which are either dried up or well aged. One can only tell by trying.
    Dead Dwarf on Barrels
    Insight DC 15
    The bodies look to have been dead and undisturbed for over one hundred years.
    Further down the wall to the east, another sentry lies rotting on the floor, though his armor seems to be none the worse for wear.
    Dead Dwarf in Full Armor
    At the far end of the corridor, the southeast corner of the wall has been blown out as if by some horrid magic. What used to be an officer's private bedchamber is now exposed. Its desiccated occupant lying benath a decaying bed, still clutching his weapon: a rather ornate greataxe
    Bedchamber


    To the north, a small hallway proceeds into another area of the lighthouse, perhaps to the stairs.

    GM: You have a choice to make:

    • Take a closer look at the scenes described above
    • Try to find your way upstairs and clear out the archers on the roof.

    Remember your overall objectives (see above)
