[sblock=Template Recovery]To resume, would anyone have a copy of the email notification of my last Melisande Post? I have some of these in my gmail for you guys. Some were in my trash folder yet.[/sblock]
[sblock=Mowgli’s last update] The frost worm rears back under Sol's determined assault, bleeding from a myriad of slashes and puncture wounds, but it seems more enraged than anything else. Time seems to stop as the massive creature holds it's position above the party, and then with a whooshing sound heard even over the gale-winds it spews forth a blast of cold so frigid it makes the snowy mountaintop seem balmy by comparison. The heroes feel their blood beginning to freeze in their veins, movement slows...
And the rest of the attack washes over you.
A ghostly hammer drifts through the snow from the north and delivers a resounding blow on Sol's armor, and nearly simultaneously a largish rock - a boulder, really - thuds to the snow at the rake's feet, throwing up a powder of snow to add to what's already swirling through the air.
Giant rotting corpses charge in from each side, one lashing the great wolf with long claws and the other ripping into Melisande.
From behind the group, a weird bleating pierces the howling of the wind, and Heinrich is slammed from behind by... something. He turns to confront the largest mountain goat he's ever seen. It's hair is tangled and matted gray, it's eyes solid white and its hooves and horns appear to be made of stone. A dented iron lantern hangs from its neck. Just as he turns to confront it, the lantern glints and a wave of sickly yellow light washes over the party; fear grips your guts and you struggle against the overwhelming urge to flee in panic!
Sol's attack does a good deal of damage to the Frost Worm, but it's still got some fight left in it.
Lots of saves vs effects in play here, so be methodical and try to hit them all...

Aradra's eyes narrowed at Mel's statement. "What do you mean killing the chieftain? I know she...is no longer here, thanks to Heinrich's letter, but I'm still a little hazy on the details."
Looking around however, Aradra says "I feel an explanation will need to wait, as I feel your hunt is coming to a close." With a snap of his left hand's fingers Aradra's bow materializes out of thin air, and he looks around with sharp eyes, looking around for the target they were here to hunt down.
Meanwhile, Shadow moves forward, and begins to walk side long with Sol, sniffing at the air.

"Kill it dead! No fear!" Each of her allies were touched by her cry, and their own resolve bolstered seeing the slightly lightly armoured woman step straight up to the gigantic ice worm and set to work in a deadly blur with beloved blade.
The creature might well tear her to shreds with a single bite or kill her dead with a its icy breath, but not before she made it feel the sting of her own skill. Charged as she was by Heinrich's protective spells, the attacks came unnaturally fast, and drove devastating deep, leaving the ice worm badly hurt, its blood spilling upon the snow.
"What? WHat will you do, you frigid worm! DO your worst!" she challenged, shifting her stance, ready to protect herself from its powerful maws.
Thanks for the map, that helps a lot.

It looks like the ice worm 5ft stepped away but it should be equally as hampered by the difficult terrain as Sol, correct? So did it provoke an AoO? I'll go through saves and things required but I'd prefer to have it clear if Sol can 5ft step in the snow with her acrobatic skill or not so I'm not wasting my time full attacking when I am not able to do that. Cheers.
I was also wondering given the severe vision limitations you described due to the weather conditions, if the goat's lamp light can actually even reach Sol to affect her (beside the fact she has her back turned). I'll roll the save anyway but it doesn't really make much sense that she can only see a few feet away but a light from behind her 60ft away could somehow affect her.
Saves and Attacks:
#1 Spiritual Weapon: It doesn't seem that Sol's movement did provoke an OAtk, so the parry I rolled should apply to the first attack against her. Did Spiritual Weapon beat AC40? If not then she parried that attack and did not take damage. The conditional reaction specified only the worm because there were no other enemies at the time, but I think its obvious that I meant to parry the first attack against her.
#2 Reflex Save vs Ice Breath 1d20+6=22 vs DC23 (http://www.coyotecode.net/roll/lookup.php?rollid=139034) - fail but would have added Charmed Life +4 bonus to this save if the current weather conditions meant that the light of the goat cannot reach Sol at the current range. If somehow the light can reach her she would add charmed life bonus to save vs Panic instead.
#3 Will Save vs Panic 1d20+18=29 vs DC21 using Charmed Life. If it is ruled that the light cannot actually reach Solomon under the current weather conditions and with her back turned then I would have applied Charmed Life to the only save against Frost Worm Breath
Will wait for DM rulings and clarifications before posting turn. [/sblock]
