Dockside Diversion/Still Waters

GlassEye

Adventurer
Sylvain directs the ball of flame into the swarming beetles expecting the embers of their burnt shells to spiral to the dock but somehow the swarm avoids a fiery fate for the moment.

Zelena steps out of the cloud of beetles shedding the pinching menace as she goes. Her attack shears a sliver of shell off the larger beetle but does little other damage.

Ichor drips from the beetle Borric wounded and when it buzzes in for another bite he chops it again with his guisarme leaving it seriously wounded. Its attack against Borric is unsuccessful.

When Nathan’s purple dragon mote explodes into light and fire a small number of the beetles comprising the swarm crash to the dock in tiny, purple balls of flame. Seeing that Borric nearly has his chopped into pieces and Zelena is steadily backing away from the swarm, Nathan’s other motes smash into the beetle next to Zelena sending it spinning. Despite being severely damaged it rights itself and snaps ineffectually at Zelena.

The swarm surges forward to again engulf Zelena pinching and biting and leaving a number of additional small wounds.

"Next!" Nathan calls out, and a whistling, fizzing zigzag shoots across to the back end of the swarm, an emerald dragon-fire this time, slightly brighter than the other fireworks so far.

The sorcerer moves back a step as the beetle gets uncomfortably close to him. "Keep your eyes on that one," he says, indicating the beetle to the new pair of glowing orbs which have appeared over his right shoulder.

OOC: 5' step away from beetle.
Move action: another firework to a section of the swarm that isn't Zelena's square.
Hold standard action until Borric acts: if Borric kills his beetle, magic missles to Zelena's. If it's still standing after his attack, Nathan will magic missle the closer beetle to finish it, instead. All three damages in the roll below:

Fireworks damage (save DC 15 half); magic missle; magic missle. (1d4=4, 1d4+1=5, 1d4+1=5)

The gnome retreats once again from the swarm... withdrawing to a safe distance... (straight back 15ft.) Letting her companions let loose with their area of effect spells. She stands ready to strike anything that comes close.

OOC: Sorry, trouble getting on last night and I am barely able to post tonight.

Borric quickly draws his flail with hi right hand and bashes the offending beetle next to him, crushing the carapace. "Heh, heh. Crack ya like a nut."

With the beetle out of action he puts the flail away (or drops it) and grips his guisarme with both hands.

Syl again takes his rolling ball of fire and directs it toward the swarm again. As it looks like the team was getting the upper hand, he moves 5' closer to Zelena, ready to heal her if he couldn't deal with the swarm this round.

OOC: DC 17 Reflex Save to avoid damage. No standard action this round.

Borric easily crushes the beetle in front of him and Nathan's motes destroy the other beetle leaving only the swarm of beetles to contend with. The swarm takes the full effect of the emerald dragon-fire but continues rolling forward. Sylvain's flaming sphere finally catches up to the swarm and burns a substantial number of the beetles leaving only a small, ragged and rapidly failing cloud.

There are enough beetles, however, to continue their erratic forward flight and engulf both Zelena and Borric with their mass.

"That's it, friends! Show 'em what you're made of!" Nathan calls out as the final hovering sparkler whizzes forward and another quartet springs into existence. The new set takes Nathan's encouragement, as well, as the first of its number streaks forward to join in a double-dragon burst of bright orange flames.

[sblock=actions]Move: Send final firework.

Standard: Re-cast Snapdragon Fireworks.

I rolled the two damages together, but I believe the swarm saves for them separately:

(( Fort Save 1d20+5=10 Failed. What does distracted mean exactly? ))

OOC:
A creature with this ability can nauseate the creatures that it damages. Any living creature that takes damage from a creature with the distraction ability is nauseated for 1 round

ad Nausium

Creatures with the nauseated condition experience stomach distress. Nauseated creatures are unable to attack, cast spells, concentrate on spells, or do anything else requiring attention. The only action such a character can take is a single move actions per turn.

Borric moves out of the swarm and remarks, "Yuck! Take them out guys."

He pulls out a flask of alchemist fire in case the swarm survives the arcane casters.
