    Hmmm...this one is too close. The cleric shifts away from a demon, then side steps her allies to get into a safer position.Here looks good . She turns and surveys the battlefield, waiting to aide those who need healing.

    minor: none
    movement: sift to m8
    movement: n9-m10-L11

    Dina and Artemis take the brunt of the force of the demon's counterattack, but remain relatively safe within their superior armor. However, a tricky maneuver from the one with the whip manages to trip Artemis over.

    The Portal Keys join the fight, but their wild swings never connect.

    The lizard opens it's mouth and hurls a huge blue fireball, which hits the floor and sends out little icicles in a radial manner. Most of the plink futilely against the iron and steel of the party but a particularly large chunk hits Nate squarely in the thigh and embeds itself rather deeply.

    While the party is distracted by the hail of icicles and with Artemis on the ground, the rider manages to land an actual blow.

    Finally, the arcanist finishes his chant and chains erupt from the "ground" and snake above the heads of the party. They slam downwards and manage to wrap themselves around the tiefling, the blink dog and the cleric.

    Dina turned to Malakai who looked like he was in a bad spot with the spectral chains that were wrapped around him.

    "Looks like you forgot to duck, Malakai. So who is it now that needs to be saved?"

    She knew the chiding would anger Malakai, and that rage was exactly what he needed to keep going in this battle.

    She then quickly turned to Artemis and implored him to strike at the rider, but she had failed to notice in the fog of battle that he was off balance. Still, perhaps all was not lost...

    Actions
    Start of Turn: 5 damage from swarm aura
    Move: Shift to N9.
    Minor: Inspiring Word Inspiring Word (2d6+1=10)
    Malakai spends a healing surge and heals 21 hit points (46/46)
    Standard: Commander's Strike (Artemis uses Resplendent Blade with +2 to hit and +5 damage vs Rider)
    Resplendent Blade (1d20+13+2=19, 1d10+15+5=29)
    Result: Forgot to include the prone penalty. Artemis will miss unless he chooses to use Heroic Effort in which case he will hit the Rider for 29 radiant damage (168/180) and P4 for 3 radiant damage (dies).

    OOC: Wasn't paying close enough attention. @FourMonos, unless you choose to have Artemis use Heroic Effort, the attack Dina granted Artemis is going to miss. It's a big chunk of damage if you turn it into a hit, so I think it would be worth it.

    Malakai struggles against the magical chains that wrapped around him, squeezing the life from him. And although Dina's healing magics kept him from passing out, her comments infuriated him more than the magical chains hurt him.

    "I NEVER..." he shouted, struggling to wriggle his dagger hand free from the binding chains, "ASKED TO BE SAVED!"

    While is the anger of his words were focused on Dina, the anger of his magic was released upon his nicely clustered enemies who, in their weakness and ineptitude, decided to distract themselves with Malakai's minions allies.

    "Caminus de Chaos, absumo immolatio tumultuarius!"

    A swirling current of fire appears in a circuit above the heads of the demons, growing darker with a fierce, angry, red power. At least it started to before the magic of the bag took over and protected itself, freezing the disk-like mass of flames into a solid block of ice. It fell to the "ground", threatening to crush the demons under its weight. However, before it could get that far, Malakai shouted his anger at the demons' binding chains, causing the block of ice to explode, sending shrapnel outward in a rain of icy death that shredded the rider and his mount, and nearly destroyed the entirety of the swarm of maw demons as well! On the outskirts of the blast, the portal keys took only minimal damage from the blast of ice.




    Actions


    Standard: Ignition, area burst 1 centered at M7, which targets S2 and P1.
    No Action: Malakai uses Elemental Escalation to add R as a target of the blast, as well as add an additional 1d10 damage on any hit.

    +10 vs Fort
    P1: 24 hits for 29 (^) cold damage.
    S2: 23 hits for 45 (*)(^) cold damage, bloodying the swarm.
    R: 20 hits for 24 cold damage.

    * This includes the extra damage from vulnerability 10.
    ^ This includes the extra 1d6 damage from Malakai's Challenge-Seeking weapon property.

    The burst creates a zone that lasts until the start of Malakai's next turn. Any creature that enters the zone or ends its turn there takes 4 fire cold damage. A creature can take the damage from this zone only once per turn.

    AP Standard
    : Ignition, close burst 1 centered at O7, which targets S2, R, and P4.

    +10 vs Fort
    S2: 27 hits for 36 (*)() cold damage.
    R: 19 hits for 18 () cold damage, killing the rider and his mount!
    P4: 22 hits for 23 (^) cold damage.

    * This includes the extra damage from vulnerability 10.
    This includes the extra 2 damage vs bloodied enemies from Malakai's Crimson Determination.
    ^ This includes the extra 1d6 damag from Malakai's Challenge-Seeking weapon property.

    The burst creates a zone that lasts until the start of Malakai's next turn. Any creature that enters the zone or ends its turn there takes 4 fire cold damage. A creature can take the damage from this zone only once per turn.



    OOC: Summary:

    P1 takes 29 cold damage.
    S2 takes 81 cold damage and is bloodied. (81/89)
    R takes 42 cold damage and is killed.

    OOC: I don't think it is necessary, but I would have used the Heroic Effort to make sure SoM's attack hit, so I'll consider it expended.

    Lilli stands her ground in the face of the Portal Key's clawing attack, her clothing suddenly shifting colours in a most distracting way. As the shadowy tendrils begin to disappear, Lilli doesn't take her eyes off her original target; the demon with the whip that just struck her friend Artemis down suddenly finds itself apparently whipped in turn by a glowing lash from the Gnomish wizard.

    actions
    Standard: Illusory Ambush at the Demon Herder.
    Total to Hit = 23, damage = 14.

    Illusory Ambush (At Will Standard Ranged 10 Arcane, Illusion, Implement, Psychic)
    Target: One creature
    Attack: +7 vs. Will
    Hit: 1d6+6 Psychic damage and the target takes a -2 penalty to attack rolls until the end of your next turn.


    One of Lilli's feats will grant her combat advantage against this chap in her next turn.


    If it matters, Lilli doesn't provoke opportunity attacks as below.

    Shimmering Cloth Armour +1 (Property)
    Effect: +1 to AC. You do not provoke opportunity attacks when you make ranged or area attacks

    Some potential interrupt actions:

    If Lilli is hit by a foe and use of the Shield spell will make it the hit miss, she'll use this:

    Shield (Encounter Immediate Interrupt Personal Arcane, Force)
    Trigger: You are hit by an attack.
    Effect: You gain a +4 power bonus to AC and Reflex defense until the end of your next turn.


    If Lilli takes damage in this round from an attack that isn't from a swarm that makes her bloodied, she'll use:

    Fade Away (Encounter Immediate Reaction Personal Illusion (Racial Ability))
    Trigger: You take damage.
    Effect: You are invisible until you attack or until the end of your next turn.




    Ministats:

    The whip came out of nowhere, tangles his feet and takes the eldritch swordsman down in an messy heap. The tiefling's cold fire explodes right next to Artemis, the explosion blocking out all sounds for the moment.

    By the time Artemis climbs to his feet, the demon rider and his lizard lie dead.

    Artemis just grins, "I can see the path before us, the demons are done." With several broad strokes, he slices through the remaining maw demons, the radiant energy from each strike ends the demon next to it.

    actions

    Free: Dire Fate: Triggered by death of Rider. Gains a +1 to attacks TENT.

    Start: Take 5 damage.

    Movement: Stand

    Standard: Resplendent Blade vs. swarm: 1d20+13+1, 1d10+15 → ([18, 13, 1], [1, 15]) Roll. Hit AC 32 for 16 damage. That should kill the swarm. One enemy adjacent to swarm takes 3 radiant damage, so P1 takes 3 radiant damage.

    Lerrick shakes of the cold and focuses on the enemy closest to her. She closes her eyes and focuses on the demon in front of her. The mark on her forehead turns bright silver. Slowly she opens her eyes, now the same color as the mark, and pushes her hands forward. Wisps of silver circle the demon, now clearly annoyed by them.
