Mordik strikes out hard at the Kyton. It seems off-mark as it bounces off a link of chain wrapping.
Ally heals Mordik with her wand.
Quarion curses as his spell power fizzles away. He takes his empowered quarterstaff in both hands and runs at the chain devil, landing a solid hit!
Eanos, bolstered by Mordik's solid hit, quickly stoops and picks up the demonstone. Holding it aloft he bellows, "I hold the stone that called you, beast! Cease your attack!"

The Devil sneers Eanos "And I will pry it from your cold, dead hands... mortal."
With that four chains around Eanos come to life and lash out at the monk.
While three of the chains test the Eanos's defenses, the fourth lashes at the monk's neck, cutting a deep bleeding wound.

ooc: Eanos takes 15 damage from a critical hit.
Total damage: 22 (to the Kyton)-regeneration (Quarion's weapon isn't silver nor good)

You guys again!

Eanos bites down on a cry of pain as the chain lashes out. Trying to focus past the pain, he smashes his fist into the palm with the gem, hoping to shatter it.

[sblock=OOC]Blessed attack vs. Demonstone; Base Damage; Blow of Steel damage (1d20+6=12, 1d8+2=6, 1d6=1) Total 7 dmg. Ugh. [/sblock]
 
"Quarion, that method of attack seems inefficient. It will resist much of your damage and the rest is nonlethal and will be quickly regenerated. Granted, we may have no better option at the moment."

(OOC: I can't remember how much Mordik is missing, but if he seems likely to survive two attacks, she'll Shield of Faith him. Otherwise, she'll heal him with the wand for a measly 3)

Mordik sees the Kyton's attention shift, and strikes a wicked blow on the Kyton's side.

Quarion takes his staff in both hands and slams the Kyton on the head with his glowing weapon.

Eanos bites down on a cry of pain as the chain lashes out. Trying to focus past the pain, he smashes his fist into the palm with the gem, hoping to shatter it.
Unfortunately the gem proves harder than his fist and the attack leaves the gem unscathed.

Ally waves her wand and touches Moridik with it as she releases a small stream of positive energy from it (healing Mordik for 3 damage).
(and Odno assists).

The Devil turns it's attention from Eanos'seemingly futile attempt to smash the gem to a nasty dwarf who keeps hitting him in very painfull ways.
It swimgs a chain above it's head and strikes the dwarf with it. The chain hits hard.

Ooc:
Mordik takes 7 damage. Good thing Ally just healed him or he'd be at 0 hp!

Total damage to Kyton: 47 minus DR and regeneration.

(OOC: Shield of Faith and cross her fingers. I mean, Eanos still has the jewel and got its attention, so maybe Mordik won't get focus-fired yet

Have Odno Aid Mordik again. Mordik didn't need it this time, but Odno couldn't have known that before he tried)

That was a funny cross-posting action! I just edited my response as I read the part where you stated to heal him if he ouldn't take 2 attacks, after I made the post.
Will you stick with the shield of faith or go for the CLW?
 
(OOC: I'd feel like a cheater if I let knowing the outcome influence my decision. Of course, if I'm lucky, SoF makes the attack miss? She'll heal Mordik this upcoming round before he attacks so he is at 2, rather than 0 (lousy roll again. Arrrrrgh!) and isn't staggered. But as I expected, this looks like a TPK--I think the issue is that Eanos alone makes this a level-appropriate challenge due to being level 5, but the critter's DR is such that he can't possibly hurt it without a crit, so it's like he isn't here. I'd have been greatly impressed if the rest of us could actually beat it. Quarion, got a healing spell for Mordik? We might stand a ghost of a chance if so.

Also, it looks like Eanos has an Adamantine Dagger--ignoring hardness is worth it for the sacrifice of the d8 damage dice for a d4 instead)

*Ally heals Mordik so he can make one last desperate attack.*

Quarion steps back and puts a hand on one of Mordik's broad shoulders, whispering "Hopai sae da haesan, eine til yr'Verdante." (7 healed)

OOC: I was going to heal before Rystil suggested it. No, seriously, I was.

ooc: The attack would still hits with the SoF.
With those 2 hp healing from Ally plus 7 from Quarion Mordik is at 9 hp. Now let's see what kind of damage Mordik will inflict this round.
Don't worry that much about a TPK.. you're starting to sound like me in one of your own deadly encounters :) You're doing great!

(OOC: Heh, I didn't know Quarion had a healing spell. We've got a chance now. It's all up to Mordik)
((OOC: hmmm... no pressure, though! ^_^;; ...and another crit! Sometimes I think Mordik should worship the Invisible Castle gods. lol))



Sustained by his party, Mordik strikes out again, and makes a deep cut that seems to just weep blood. With a wicked grin, Mordik coughs up crimson, fighting on.



atk+10, dmg+2, sneak+2d6

(atk=29, dmg=7, sneak=8)


crit confirm? another 1d8+2 if yes
(confirm?=26, dmg=8)


Total: 7+8+8= 23!
 
(OOC: You win the internet. And, more than likely, this battle. Nice going! It was tense there for a moment--1 more damage and Mordik would have fallen unconscious :uhoh: Mad props to NPC Odno for the flanking and aid anothers though)

((OOC: we might not be out of the woods yet. *fingers crossed*))
 
(OOC: I think you got it--that was an amazing crit. Wow, we're lucky Ally asked Graven for silver and cold iron weapons to eventually use against his own devil or else we'd be stuck doing nonlethal to this thing :uhoh: )

((OOC: I'm not sure Graven is a different being. I'm excited to find out how the end of this combat wraps up and if Graven is here, how he responds.))
