Kulan: Knightfall's Crisis in Bluffside Game [IC]

Tellerian Hawke

Defender of Oerth
Having already made a show of faith of his own, it occurs to Tim that there might be a way to get the Mimic to do the same. Remembering that Lowenan had begun this fight using Magic Missile, he makes the following proposition:

Tim says, "Mimic, show your faith in this matter; release Lowenan, so that he can use his magicks to lay the foul Doppleganger low; then, I am certain no one would stop you from making a meal of this soulless abomination!"

"He is not who he seems lady. Yet another foul Doppleganger had infiltrated the ranks." He offers a hand if she wishes to stand.
Arnona takes the paladin's offer hand and pulls herself to her feet with Breva's help.

"One of the gnome's recruits," she says. "We should have seen through his disguise." She bends down to pick up her bow. She looks towards the remains of the fire demon. "You defeated it. I'm impressed."

The DMK moves around the altar and attacks the mimic before it can crush Lowenan again. His inability to hear makes him unwavering as the mimic begins to plead for its life again.

"Wait! No, tell him to stop! I surrender!"

The knight brings his blade down on the mimic and nearly cuts it in half. The creature's pseudopods go limp and Lowenan gasps in a breath.

"I'd say thank you to him if I could move my arms."

The DMK turns its blade towards the doppelganger and with an obvious but silent gesture, orders 'Charvin' to drop his weapon. The snarl on his face is meant for the shapechanger but his gesture seems to be meant for both 'Charvin' and Tim.

"I suggest you stop fighting doppelganger! Lowenan shouts hoarsely. "He will cut you to ribbons!"

The doppelganger is still reeling from Tim's blow, but he doesn't lower his blade. "I know he won't risk her life, and he will kill anyone who does! Love and rage are his weaknesses!"

Tim can see that the DMK's eyes are full of anger... and fear. The silent knight motions for Tim to back off.

Custodio moves towards Lowenan slowly and carefully. He sheathes his blade as he moves. "Once you are free, I will be arresting you," he says to the ex-commander. Then he turns to the doppelganger. "You cannot win. Surrender and maybe you might be able to avoid the noose if you can be useful in helping defeat Waldo and your gnome master."

"You really have no idea how many of us there are in this city, do you? Mani tried to tell you but you refused to listen to him."

"I remember that he lies as easily as breathing," Custodio says. "Drop you weapon or face a bloody death."

"I will kill her!" The doppelganger shouts.

"Which one are you? Melion? No... Romulus. Yes," Lowenan says as the doppelganger's form inadvertently shifts at the mention of its name. "I don't care what Musummaar offered you for this betrayal. Going against Phelix will cost your life. See reason Romulus. Dying here will do neither of us any good."

Tim watches helplessly as the DMK moves and kills the mimic. The man hear's no warning for him to stop and he cannot see Akos with his back to the Loremaster.

@Aust Thale:
Falen had been ready to fire once again but the Deaf-Mute Knight's actions make the point moot.

Silagord points his wand at the creature he thought was Chavin. He wonder where the ex-guard could be. "What- what did you do with Chavin?" Silagord asks the doppelganger. "Is he dead?"

The doppelganger doesn't answer.

Loremaster sighs at the violence in the souls of those using weapons. Did they take weapons because they were that way before or did their training focus the violence so they react that way.

He enters the room until DMK can see him and signs carefully

"The circle is killing her. And you're enabling it. Breaking the circle might kill her, but we have healers here. Leaving her inside is death as if you killed her yourself."

Tuck hesitates for a few moments as the negotiations seem to go nowhere. That doppelganger is not giving up.

The kobold decides not to wait anymore. He rapidly shoots his crossbow bolts at Romulus.

OOC: Don't know if Tuck is under magical effects such as Haste, but I want to make a full attack.

OOC: aw heck. I needed a feat to do what I wanted.

I will move Vinny to be Northwest of the doppelganger, near the dead mimic and stab the rather injured Not Charvin.

ScottDeWar,Jr: D20 + 8 → 23(15 + 8) dang, not a crit.
ScottDeWar,Jr: D6 + 3 → 5(2 + 3)[/ooc]
Vinny moves quickly under the effects of his spell and the dead mimic is only a slight hinderance... or more accurately, its sticky ichor on the floor causes Vinny to be careful moving past the dead aberration. The Sectarian Guard takes up a position opposite of Tim and stabs out at the doppelganger. His blade cuts a shallow wound into the shapechanger.

The DMK looks at Vinny with great anger in his eyes. The knight is furious that Vinny attacked so close to the magic circle. He tries again to get the adventurers to stop attacking by motioning for weapons to be put down.

OOC:
At the position you're having Vinny move to, he also gets a +2 for flanking. That turns your attack roll into a hit.


Tuck hesitates for a few moments as the negotiations seem to go nowhere. That doppelganger is not giving up.

The kobold decides not to wait anymore. He rapidly shoots his crossbow bolts at Romulus.
The first bolt sinks deep into Romulus's shoulder, but the doppelganger is able to get his shield up in time to deflect away the second bolt. The third bolt thumps into the dead mimic.

OOC:
I'm assuming you want Tuck to make his full attack using Rapid Shot. He's also close enough for Point Blank Shot to apply to his roll. He has to take a 5-ft. step to be able to fire at the doppelganger.

Tuck - Full Attack with Light Crossbow (Bless, Point Blank Shot, Rapid Reload, and Rapid Shot): 1D20+13 = [12]+13 = 25
1D20+13 = [10]+13 = 23
1D20+8 = [9]+8 = 17
(one hit and two misses)
Tuck - Damage to doppelganger: 1D6+1 = [6]+1 = 7

The doppelganger glares at Tuck and it yells in defiance. "You will pay for your hubris! She will pay!" The doppelganger slashes out at the portal with his blade twice. The first strike seems to cut a huge hole in the portal but then the red energy between the portal and the magic circle pulses and the force of the blow is transferred to helpless genie.

Vinccenzo watches as a large wound opens up on the female outsider's chest. The wound doesn't bleed but it could be fatal to her. The Sectarian Guard notes that the genie also has other wounds on her that weren't visible to him from the other side of the room. One arm is bent at a odd angle and might be broken. Vinny can now tell that she is trapped by some sort of temporal force, which prevents her from speaking. She might not even be aware of her surroundings.

The doppelganger's second strike also cuts a hole in the portal but not as large. The energy flashes again and another wound appears on the genie. The energy holding open the portal begins to ebb and it looks to be unstable.

"She's dying!" Lowenan warns. The ex-commander looks towards the DMK with grave concern. "You must not let her die! He will kill us all if she dies!"

The DMK grits his teeth and glares at both Romulus and Vinccenzo.

OOC:
The genie is considered Helpless (Dex: 0) but has a +4 to her AC from having to attack her through the portal. Not-Charvin's attacks are considered sneak attacks.

Not-Charvin - Full Attack vs. helpless Genie (through the portal +4 AC): 1D20+20 = [18]+20 = 38
1D20+15 = [10]+15 = 25 (critical threat and hit)
Not-Charvin - Confirm Critical vs. Genie: 1D20+20 = [6]+20 = 26 (crit.)

Not-Charvin - Sneak Attack damage to Genie: 2D8+12+2D6 = [5, 2]+12+[2, 6] = 27
1D8+6+2D6 = [3]+6+[1, 3] = 13

The genie can also be healed through the portal but trying to do so is considered a touch attack. Her touch AC is 10.

"Slay that evil shapechanger! I will try to help the genie. Tell the knight I am going to heal her." He advances quickly stepping over the dead mimic and staying just out of reach of the doppleganger before working his way to the opposite side of the portal. There he extends a hand carefully and calls upon the blessing of the Purifier to heal the genie.

OOC:
melee touch: 1D20+11 = [7]+11 = 18
Using up the remaining 12 points of lay on hands.

OOC: Double move to the portal. Opposite Not-Charvin. Will try to heal her next round.
Breva is able to avoid most of the remains of the mimic and the fire demon. The paladin of the Purifier is soon standing next to the portal as it hovers over the altar in between the four columns. He reaches out with his healing power and tries to direct it through to portal to the dying genie.

OOC: Actually, Breva is close enough to get to the portal this round and make a melee touch attack.

Loremaster Akos sighs at the violence in the souls of those using weapons. Did they take weapons because they were that way before or did their training focus the violence so they react that way.

He enters the room until DMK can see him and signs carefully

"The circle is killing her. And you're enabling it. Breaking the circle might kill her, but we have healers here. Leaving her inside is death as if you killed her yourself."
The Loremaster moves carefully into the room and stops near where Breva is trying to use his healing power on the genie through the portal. Hopefully it works. At first, Akos is worried that the DMK might not notice him but the man continually scans the room around him, as his eyes are his only major sense of danger. When the Loremaster approaches and begins signing again, the knight keeps his focus on Akos and watches him carefully.

He seems to understand what Akos is saying but he seems confused by what the Loremaster is telling him. He is unwilling to sheath his blade or drop his defenses to sign back at the Loremaster, but his anger shifts more to concern for the genie. He watches as Breva tries to heal the genie and then glares back at the doppelganger. He motions with his blade, again, for the doppelganger to drop his weapon but not-Charvin ignores him.

The knight stops glaring at Vinccenzo and Tim, so it seems that Akos has convinced not to attack the others, at the very least.

Breva's deity responds to the paladin's prayer and the healing energy successfully flows into the portal and through the magical energy connecting the portal to the magic circle. The reddish energy connecting the portal to the magic circle shifts to a blue light and the magic circle turns from red to blue. The portal stabilizes and Breva can see the scene of an endless sky through the portal.

Seeing that the DMK now understands that the Genie's life force is tied to the portal, Tim sheathes his sword in its back-scabbard, as he takes a double move around the room, moving into the position previously occupied by the Mimic. It looks as if the movement is a tactical one. Tim has some strategic purpose in mind.

Akos quickly signs to the knight "Kill the doppelganger. I heal."
Calling on the powers from fey realms, golden green transparent book flies from his hand into the portal. It seems planar energy doesn't travel well between the worlds. Beyond the portal, a much smaller and fuzzier book appears impacting the genie. The wounds close infinitesimaly more.

OOC: bad heal roll :)
I am travelling to Bank "olympics" - I will be mostly or fully offline from 22nd to 26th (Wed - Sun).

Tim soon realizes that if he moves in next to the doppelganger, he will leave himself open to attack by the shapechanger. He stops in behind Akos and waits for an opportunity to move forward to help if required. The big knight watches as Custodio tries to free Lowenan from the sticky mess that is the dead mimc's pseudopods so that he can manacle the ex-commander.
