    OOC: I apologize profusely for the long gaps between posts. I am still playing, just slower than before. Things will pick up soon (they always do when Winter comes). I'm not sure how to handle this because a couple of things went horribly wrong:


    • My last post was not intended as an update of the bad guys' round. I was just posting immediate reactions that resulted from Sheng's foray around the corner.
    • At the end of my last post, Sheng still had a minor and and a standard action to go.
    • In addition, there were some errors in the map that affect Riardon's Actions for which I must apologize profusely
      • I've updated the map to properly reflect the lines of sight that TikChik and Sheng have. This ends up revealing most of the first floor.
      • D14-D16, D20-D23, and -A14-D14 are solid 5-foot-thick walls. I've updated the map with a dark line where the wall is. Unfortunately, this means that Sheng does not have direct line of sight to D19 (the wall is blocking his view).
      • Likewise, moving to D22 is illegal because it places Riardon directly inside a wall.
      • Somewhere I did not properly save the map, and Iron defender 2 magically teleported to From F19 to the stairs at -A15. He is supposed to be at F19, and I have now updated the map in the previous post accordingly.


    To remedy the situation, may I propose the following:

    • Since it was I who screwed this up, I'll simply pick up from here if you will do the following:
    • @Walking Dad : Please retcon your actions with legal moves (according to my retconned map). Don't foreget wall locations and the iron defender at F19 (as I did).
    • @Voda Vosa : Go ahead and add an extra minor and standard to the actions you just posted.

    When this has been done, I'll post the enemy actions. Sorry about the mess.

    @Tenchuu : I'm providing a new update for you here, since you are, for the moment, asynchronous with the others:

    The Second Floor
    The skeletal dwarf, hands you the axe, "The soul of Arkus Gimlord lives within Stang. He will judge your worth, "The dwarf hands Gensai the axe. Electricity arcs to the ronin's hand as he takes the weapon. The pain is startling, but grows into a fire that surges through him as he maintains his grip on the handle, as the buring sensation subsides, a voice rings in Gensai's head, "I am the Lightgiver, the Life Force, the Giant Slayer, and the Coming Storm!" The blademaster shakes his head, but the voice continues, "Find the fuel! Repair the beacon! Light the fire! The others will come!"

    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.

    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.

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

    • Examine some of the other points of interest on this floor
    • Try to find your way upstairs and clear out the archers on the roof.
    • Go downstairs and help your comrades.

    Remember your overall objectives (see above)

    Sheng tries to attack the skeleton that shot him with a chaos bolt, but the green and terrifying gas skull misses it's mark completely. Cursing, the monk spins around and seeks cover near Fendwick. Seeing the bad state in which the dwarf is, the jadite tries to block some of Hankels Chakras by piercing his flesh with his bare fingers, in order to stop the bleeding.

    Gensai hesitated, unsure what to do. He went back and forth, weighing the options, but ultimately knew he could not leave his friends to fight alone if they needed his help. So, risking his position, he shouted at the top of his lungs:

    "MY BROTHERS, SHOULD I PRESS AHEAD OR TURN BACK TO AID YOU?!"

    TikChik's mandibles click, "Well, I might as well lose another arm. Somebody's got to punch a hole in those clankers."

    The thri-kreen charges headlong into the crowd of constructs doing considerable damage as he goes. One blade slices deep into the iron dog on the right, while the other nearly severs the hind leg of the construct on the left.

    The charge is not without a cost, however. The metal beasts strike back, badly wounding the ranger who manages to retreat to crumbled corner of the building to take cover behind the well.

    This turns out to be a good move, because no sooner does he duck behind the well, than he feels the air hum with an arrow that barely misses his head.

    Arrows continue to rain down from the third floor of the tower, and from this and Gensai's echoing call of indecision, it is apparent that wherever he has gone, he has not reached the archers yet.

    Fenwick cradles Hankel in an attempt to keep him alive. So far the dwarf has not stopped breathing, but he remains unconscious.

    "Yes, of course," Gensai said, repeating, "Find Fuel, Repair Beacon, Light the Fire."

    He stowed the huge weapon as best he could, slung across his back. Moving across the room, he stabbed his sword into one of old barrels, and pulled it out to examine the contents now on his blade.

    OOC: Can I see out the window, to down below? I am tempted to toss stang to them, since Gensai can't weild a two handed weapon without redoing all his stats (to the negative).

    GM: The arrow slits are wide enough for the axe. The arrow slits are at D15, D18, and D21. There is also the corner at C24 where the wall has crumbled away completely down to the foundation allowing an unobstructed view of the east side of the building. When dropped from an arrow slit, the axe will bounce to a square determined by a roll of 1d6, one possibility being that it bounces back into the target square. If dropped from C24 it will bounce a square adjacent to the target square on a 1d8 roll, and it will not land in the target square.
