    My communities:

    Khemnos suffers from the poison coursing through his veins, but he still moves over to surround Porse with Kruk. A blast of mental effort slams into Porse and allows Kruk an opening. The poison continues to afflict him, however.

    Mechanics
    Start of turn - Take 5 OGD.

    Minor action - Sustain Visions of Avarice, but not making any attacks with it.

    Move action - Shift to H15.

    Standard action - Beguiling Strands (close blast 5, F-J/16-20, enemies only).

    Beguiling Strands Porse (CA) (1d20+13+2=27)

    Hits Will 27 on Porse for 5 psychic damage. If this hits, Kruk gets his free attack.

    End of turn - Save vs OGD Poison:

    Save vs OGD (1d20=1)

    Failure.

    Khemnos will use his Belt of Raging Endurance the next time he is hit for more than 10 damage.

    OOC: I have been bogged down with work. Update this weekend.

    As an aside, is it just me, or is ENWORLD loading super slow.

    Telsa dropped to deck, never to rise again.

    The ship drove into a wide trough of a swell, leveling out for a moment.

    The Hunter move on the deck to get a better shot on Kruk, but the bolt failed to pierce his armor yet again.

    Porse slashed at Kruk and sidestepped, using his footwork and swordhand to escape without reprisal. He sneared at Khemnos, "The wizard is your weakest link. Perhaps if I take him down, you'll see the err of your ways."

    Raising his off-hand, he fired the small crossbow. The quarrel found the mage's neck. Khemnos stumbled, loosing the shaft, and holding his hand tight against the wound to stem the terrible bleeding. He nearly succumbed to the attack, but his belt glowed bright and kept the wizard going--at least a little bit longer.

    Motion in the Ocean

    Active effects:
    I will roll these
    As the boat crests/troughs the swells, the angle of the ship's deck will change dramatically between forward and Aft. Athletics or Acrobatics check, DC 22:
    On a success you are not moved. On a fail, you are pushed three squares in the direction of the downward slope (forward or aft). If a push would move you to a square off deck, push over deck rules (below) apply. If you roll a nat 1, you fall prone.

    The NPCs are considered to have +15 for this skill check.


    Passive effects:
    Moving to the upper side/from where the water is coming, takes X2 squares of movement. Going to the lower part of in favor of the swell, lets you move an additional square for each square you move in that direction. I will include the below stat block in my posts, which will hopefully make this effect quite clear.

    Check Map Block for Current Deck Direction
    Push over deck
    The ship's railing prevents normal push/pull/shift falling rules. So, if you use a forced movement power which would normal be able to move an enemy off the ship, the enemy still rolls a save; If the save passes, movement ends at the deck railing with no other effects. If the save fails, movement ends at the deck railing and the character goes prone.

    To actually get someone over the edge, you need to:
    1. Grab (standard) sorry, the bad guy gets a chance to escape
    2. Sustain grab (minor). Lift and Move grabbed enemy (Standard) with a STR vs. Fort. to force the enemy over the rail. The player's STRx20 must be more than the enemy's weight, which I think might preclude some of the smaller characters from attempting this.
    Cover/Concealment
    Most of the junk on the ship's deck is not that tall. Since Carolina is small, she can crouch behind the cannons and the boats to get total concealment. Everyone else at medium size would need to go prone behind the objects to achieve the same effect. Otherwise, you can get the -2 variety only.
    Dim Light

    Characters who have normal vision canít see well in dim light: Creatures in the area have concealment (-2 to hit with melee / ranged). Characters who have low-light vision or darkvision see normally in dim light.

    I have adjusted the enemy stat blocks to include any attack penalties as part of their stated stats.
    mechanics

    Adventure Summary

    Motives
    Everyone: Report back to Byron & decide what to do with the information about the brotherhood.
    LB3 Summary

    Summary of Events
    1. Bested Pirates en route to Allaria. Traveled on the ship Wind's Will captained by Captain Levenbrech, and mated by Porse and Trig.
    2. Arrived in the port, to find it besieged by Lizards from the unending mire. Defeated lizards and met/teamed up with Charina.
    3. Journeyed to Geardagas and asked the locals for information with mixed results (link to the leads gathered).
    4. Went to the temple of Netari, where the new priest, Father Niris, has been tending to the ill (apparently quite poorly). He led the players into the catacombs, where his zombie minions ambushed. The priest, over confident, rambled on about Hellview (background reference for players).
    5. Dealing a mortal blow to the Priest, he says Master De Luccia (First time they have heard the name) cannot be stopped, and he stated that Greggor "will be... among the first... at Hellview." The priest laid dying on the floor with his fallen minions.
    6. As they approach Hellview, they encounter the ghost of Sir Alistair Glasston, who begged them to enter the cave and retrieve his lost battleaxe.
    7. They entered Hellview, and came across a portal, as well as some guards/workers. It seems they were using zombies to dig a new path near the portal...
    8. They step through the portal into a bizarre world. A demon statue looms ahead, with a tall gate behind. The bodies of fallen adventurers, as well as a dead demon, lay about the floor. Wil Triggered the Demon statue trap, alerting the nearby demon's.
    9. After a long battle, they slew all of the demons who had come through the hell gate, and they found Sir Alistair Glasston's lost battleaxe. But Greggor was still missing, and there is the question of why the demons were digging.
    10. Hergunna departed the group to alert the local militia, while the others pressed ahead North, trying to find the source of the demon-aligned miners, as well as the lost silver.
    11. They came upon a wall blocking the road to the mine. Mounted knight Brother Arleas leads a band of outlaws and zombies to defend the mine entrance. After slaying the Knight and half his men, the remaining wizards and archers closed the gate. The battle continued until only the fat temporal wizard, Alaria, remained alive. She pleaded for her life to be spared.
    12. Alaria identified the men who hired her as being part of the Brotherhood.
    13. They entered the mine and found Greggor with some other miners. Greggor shows them a path recently carved from the mine into the Hellview portal tunnels. They are using the tunnel to subvert the protection which bars them from exiting the portal into Alaria.
    14. By the portal, they opened up the wall to reveal a hidden demon temple. Inside, Master De Luccia brings the demon Amendfohl (the same demon that Sir Alistair Glasston fought during the fall of Allaria) back to life. De Luccia Declared, "The time for the Brotherhood of the Bright Eon is once again at hand." The players slay the demon, and De Luccia offers them a deal where everyone just walks away. The players balk, and attack. DeLuccia drops Kruk and threatens to kill the dwarf if they don't leave, but the players press the attack, and kill the brotherhood master as well.
    Summary of Events
    1. The adventurers return to Geardagas. They meet with Count Saga, who puts them on a quest to Alert Daunton to the Brotherhood threat and request aid for Allaria. They are joined by the mage Khemnos.
    2. They board the Wind's Will to return back to Daunton, but things seem off. The Captain and his second mate are missing; First Mate Porse seems to be running the ship, and he is his usual unfriendly self. Over dinner, they question Porse, and get a bad feeling about the Sailor's intentions.
    3. The Sailors made a move against the adventurers at night. The sea is rough.

    Kruk smiles as he sees his foe starting to struggle due to his injuries. He moves forward and swings his axe with the intent to decapitate his foe. However, the swaying of the boat throws his aim off. Frustrated, the dwarf swings again...and misses badly. Frustrated with himself: Aggghhh!!! Come'n Kruk! You got to do better than that!


    actions

    movement: walk to I18
    minor: none
    attack: bloodied the field: 1d20+16 vs for 2d10+11 = miss

    mark Porse

    AP: brash attack: 1d20+18, 1d10+11 = miss again

    a 3 and another 3 wow!



    ooc: note: if anyone hits Porse with an attack, Kruk gets another free attack. This occurs once per round
    for the rest of the encounter.

    Porse, you have angered the great Band of Wil Rando and we shall strike you down with great vengeance! Wil fires an arrow at Porse, marking the first mate with his ire.

    OOC
    Will this fight never end?
    Take 5 ongoing poison damage
    Standard: Saga of Vengeance against Porse HIT for 33 damage (I should have done this earlier)
    Until the end of the encounter, whenever an ally hits the target with an attack, that ally can choose to roll a saving throw or to regain 9 hit points.

    If Khemnos is dropped by an enemy attack I have Word of Life:
    Trigger: An enemy attack reduces an ally within 20 squares of you to 0 hit points or fewer. Effect: The target can spend a healing surge. In addition, the attacking enemy takes a -5 penalty to all defenses until the end of your next turn.

    Charina takes a queer look at her arbalest. Is something wrong? People just aren't dying fast enough for her taste. She bobs and weave through the battlefield and shoots carelessly a bolts that fly wide. Impatience strikes again.

    OOC: Move to F13 with stealth to hide (actually my bonus is 22 so I couldn't have failed), Sly Flourish vs Porse, not hidden at the end of the turn. A natural 1. Yay.
