First Post
Watching Lerrick closely, enamored by the human girl, Gil notices the mental onslaught and uses the distraction to conjure a shadow of his former self. The dark swathed assassin stood across the Burrower from Artemis, hard eyes watching for an opening. The phantasmal henchman stabs out toward the Burrower, but doesn't connect with the creature.

Gil loses concentration, and the specter dissipates into a fine mist, but Gil rallies and uses the leftover magical energy to bring about another spell. Using that former darkness within himself, the wizard covers the arena floor in twilight, a hazy darkness that his enemies can get lost in.

The Burrower is surrounded in the darkness, and the blackness itself stabs out at the beast with reckless abandon. The phantasmal henchman forms again, out of the mist, and dives into the beasts mouth; stabbing and distracting from the inside of the great worm.

All this time, Gil has been slowly backing away from the heat of battle, until his back touches the other side of the arena. The scholar jumps and spins, expecting to find another Spawn, but to his relief is met by the wall itself.

Brenwar's armor begins to glow as the super-heated beast surrounds him. He continues battling the beast smashing away its snapping jaws. After smashing away the creature's pincers with his shield he beseeches Palladys to heal Artemis. However, this allows the beast to get inside his defense more quickly than expected. Brenwar barely manages to keep it at bay, ruining his prayer of protection for the group.

Over the din of battle Brenwar yells to his allies, "Get a bit nearer and I shall request the protection of Palladys for the group."
If everyone can get within 5 squares of Brenwar this turn I'll try to give some temporary hitpoints. Also, I can heal Artemis ( @FourMonos ) with a Lay on Hands so don't start your turn and go unconscious on me.
People who would need to be closer: @MetaVoid @Somebody (You just need to wake up, not move :p) @CaBaNa
It is only 8 temporary hit points pending me connecting with my attack so prioritize it as you will.

@Iron Sky is the fire damage aura 2 auras that do 5 each or 1 super aura that does 10? My DR would love to know.
EDIT: I screwed up a couple of notifications and can't fix them. oh, well.

Palladys? You're from the Imperium as well? asks Gil, ever curious, even during battle.

[MENTION=60965]Iron Sky[/MENTION], [MENTION=30079]Rapida[/MENTION], I would like to point out that AC bonus is Cyr's end of turn so for the beasts turn he and Artemis still have it.


First Post
While still being battered by the super-heated beast, "Indeed, but perhaps", he stops as the monster lunges in again, "we could converse about this later?"

GM: @MetaVoid , does Artemis get the +5 AC bonus even if you slide Ootah instead? I'm confused as well. I assumed the +5 was TENT.

Why does everyone always say that to me? Gil asks himself, safely away from the heat of battle and feeling confident in his team. I'll hold you to that! shouts the scholar toward Brenwar. Artemis! While it is distracted!


First Post
Spawn 1 - 1 square to the left and down (if I can slide the beast I don't see) example: M28 -> N27

Spawn 2 - M26 -> N25
Spawn 4 - P25 ->N24

OOC: Have the Burrower Spawn actually been slid to these squares now currently? Or is this just tactics for later on? Cause Brenwar was attacking BS 4 as if it was still in P25 and not N24. I just want to be clear on all this before I move and possibly attack nothing in an empty square cause of confusion.


First Post
If needed I have a move action to make my turn work. Go ahead and use it as needed IronSky, just keep me adjacent to the big burrower so I can keep him divine challenged.

AC bonus works for all within the spell area, so yes, Artemis is in his original location and Ootah is slid.

And, as far as I remember, TENT effects mean that they end after MONSTER's turn (that is, they affect the monsters once) - since the effect ends at the end of the Cyr's next turn, PCs should be protected until he acts next. Since PbP means we don't have set init order and to avoid using this twice it ends after it's main effect (protection from monsters end)-

We should really ask [MENTION=834]Mal Malenkirk[/MENTION] about his intent on this.

Also, as written, I believe monsters are in new locations (and, knowing neurotic, he's sleeping and won't confirm before tomorrow morning)

*Watching the chaos whirl all around him and the rest of his new comrades in arms. He pauses a moment to simply contemplate the next best course of action to take. Then he takes off like a flash. Darting around the outskirts of the battlefield. Then plunging into the thick of it. Raising his blade as rushes in he skewers the burrower spawn in the soft underbelly. He bellows out in pain, letting all those close at hand whom to be focusing upon next. Kauldron grins behind his masked helm.*

[sblock=hit points] Just clarifying Artemis hit points: end of turn 9 hp, +25 hp from Lerrick (awesome heal dimsdale!) = 34 hp then -9 hp from burrower spawn 3, -13 damage from burrower, and another -6 from burrower = 6 hp to start the turn (before heal) [/sblock]

Artemis is buffetted again by the burrowers attack. He is about to collapse from the blows and overwhelming heat when Brenwar's healing touch and reasssurance revives his energy. He gives the stalwart paladin a thankful nod.

"Stand fast, friends, we will overcome!"

Seeing the crippling blow landed by Kauldron, Artemis spins on his spot and slices the spawn worm with a blazing light born of the stars. The burrower spawn next to it is also buffetted by the blow.

Pre-Turn: Heal 21hp from Brenwar (thanks Rapida!)
Start: Take 5 damage (ongoing)
Start: Take 5 damage (next to burrower)
Standard: Resplendent Blade vs. burrower spawn 4 (square N-24): 1d20+11+2, 1d10+12+2 → ([14, 11, 2], [3, 12, 2]) Roll Lookup Hit AC 27 for 15 damage. I think that kills it. The burrower spawn next to it (spawn 2 I think) takes 3 radiant damage.
Free: Dire Fate: Artemis gains +1 to attack rolls TENT
Movement: Shift to L-24
Save vs ongoing damage: 1d20 → [16] = (16) Roll Lookup

Match One: The Sandy Arena, Round 3

One of the worms burrows up leaps at Cyr with its hooked limbs, but the Invoker evades it. Kauldron isn't so lucky, one managing to clamp onto the goblin but not managing to bite through his tough armor.

The burrower itself dives into the sands despite, knocking Brenwar and Lerrick around as its it burrows. Its barbed, lashing tail is finally visible as its long, blazing body arcs through the sand. It swivels its head towards the goblin that provoked it but seems too rattled by Gil's enfeebling magic to do much else.

GM: @Neurotic , curse damage is also maximized on a crit.

@pathfinderq1 , Joy took 5 damage for entering the Burrower's aura.

@CaBaNa , your attacks vs Spawn 4 and Burrower took 5 extra psychic damage from inevitable defeat.

For convenience, we'll assume Brenwar went before Artemis was slid away so his Lay On Hands doesn't have to be retconned.

@FourMonos , Artemis had already been slid before his turn. Because of that, he took his 5 fire damage from moving to N24 through the aura to get to Spawn 4 instead of at the start of his turn.

Gave Artemis the 3 THP.

[sblock=Enemy Actions]Burrower Spawn 1: Burrow up to I26, Stealth 32, Claw Hooks(+2 CA): 16 vs Cyr's AC 22, miss.

Burrower midsection replaces head, Burrower tail replaces midsection, Stealth 23, Burrow Up (close burst 1, +2 CA): 20 vs Brenwar's 18 Fort, hit, 13 vs Ootah's 16 Fort, miss, 16 vs Kauldron's 18 Fort, miss, 17 vs Lerrick's 16 Fort, hit, Brewnar and Lerrick take 18(Brenwar's reduced to 15) damage and slide 2.[/sblock]

[sblock=Appease the Crowd]*As a minor action, a PC may make a skill check to wow the crowd. If they succeed at the check, they gain +2 to their next d20 roll if they beat the DC, plus +2 per 5 by which they beat the DC. If the check is failed, the PC takes a -2 penalty to their next d20 roll, -2 more per 5 by which they miss the DC.

I.E, if the DC is 15, 1-5 would be -6, 6-10 would be -4, 11-14 would be -2, 15-19 would be +2, etc.

*All skill DCs will start at 15 and each individual skill's DC goes up by 2 per time the skill is used as the crowd gets more jaded. The DCs go up at the end of the round in which they are used. The DCs do not drop between arena rounds.

*Any skill can be used, as long as the player can provide relevant character action to back up the roll.

I plan on living forever. Or die trying.
Martelai rod flashes again as the burrower spawn dies. Again it explodes in cold looking motes, which fly into all spawn and back to the warlock. He moves forward, targeting the spawn which threatens the invoker, but fails to destroy it. It seems Caiphon is not happy that his power is used in this manner, to entertain lower life forms.

[sblock=Iron Sky][MENTION=60965]Iron Sky[/MENTION], you have two identical TErrain blocks in stats. Also, in enemy actions you have Spawn 2 and in Combatants Spawn 4 (in P25 which should be N25 I think)[/sblock]

The sound of Kauldron armor being hit amplifies until it is true promise of thunder somewhere in the distance.

Cyr smiles as his god marks the target.

Deva decides to target all of the remaining enemies. His cleched hand shines, rays of holy light escaping through. When he opens it, thin beam of holy light strikes all remaining opponents, killing the one closest to him and burning the rest.

He then tries to recall some useful info from Mireva's library and to spot any hidden burrowers, but between flashes of magic and his own blinding fist he doesn't manage either.

Immediate Reaction: On Kauldron being hit, Preserver's Rebuke, Cyr gets +3 to hit that enemy

Standard: Hand of Radiance vs Ref(Spawn 1; Spawn 4 or 2?; Burrower); radiant damage (1d20+12=25, 1d20+12+3=34, 1d20+12+2=27, 1d4+7=10)

Minor: Arcana check against Burrower (1d20+12=14) - fail

Minor: Perception, looking for more hidden monsters (1d20+14=20)
