Jagra looks to the party, steel in his eye. "Hit the speaker. HARD. He's the leader of this little rabble..." The gnome waves his hands in a complex patter and spits words that vanish from your ears like frost before the sun...
OOC: Casting web - I am placing it such that it gets all of the cyclopses, save Pesetokos.
Even before the cyclopses start moving, a mass of sticky strands burst in the center of the group and entagle several of them. The ones free go after you, while the others struggle in vain against the spell. Ureos has better luck: casting his lightning bolt, he burns a large piece of the web and hits Jagra at the same time one of the cyclopses reach Shin´nairo. Both strike at the same time, wounding each other. Other cyclops go for Pesetokos, but you don´t quite know what´s happening there.
[Shin´nairo readies an attack, and Jagra casts Web, entangling Ureos and three cyclopses. All make their saves, but fail to move this round. Ureos makes his concentration roll to cast while Entangled, and releases a Lightining bolt that destroys a large portion of the Web (the spell, not the internet) and hits Jagra, who fails his Reflex save and eats 27 damage. The cyclopses move, but only one has an unobstructed path to one of you (Shin´nairo) and changes. Shin´nairo steps ahead (since she didn´t move she could make a 5 foot step into the cyclop´s reach) and easily hits for 12 points of damage; the cyclops also hits with his axe, damaging the elf for 11 points.
Status: Jagra 26/53, Shin´nairo 59/70. Amira has Mage Armor active. It´s the turn of you all.]
Amira cringes as the bolt of lighting whizzes so close to her. She takes a step backwards and casts a spell. The familiar gentle wind gives her and all allies some added speed.(OOC: 5' step SW and cast Haste.)
Menghil squints as the bright flash of lightning passes just to his left. He locks his gaze onto the approaching cylcops and tightens his grip on his cutlass as he darts around the giant and swings for it's back with all his anger and strength placed behind the slim arc of metal.
[ooc - rage, then tumble (+9) to flank #7 with Shin'Nairo. Attack two handed (+17) for 1d6+11 dmg, +3d6 sneak attack.]
Jagra, his hair still standing on end from the lightning, grimaces at the pain and blinks away tears cause by the acrid smoke floating around him. 'Two can play that game', he mutters to himself and fires his own lightning bolt back at Ureos.
Once the spell is cast, he takes a step towards the foliage closest him, and tries to gain a bit of cover before as he contemplates his next move...
The jungle has becomed something like a lightning storm, when Jagra and Ureos shoot thunder at each other, with little real effect beyond igniting the vegetation. The fighting part of the group works a lot better: invigorated again by Amirás spells, they surround and kill a cyclops in seconds, who crumbles under the weight of several bloody cuts. Al-Khazad steps ahead and throws a dagger at another cyclops that sinks in his face, dangerously near it´s only eye. That´s like a signal: a roar echoes in the jungle, and almost simultaneously Akeeta jumps on the cyclops back. He proves to be an experienced fighter, and stops her charge with a good place blow and then starts to pummer her with his two axes. Menghil takes another axe in is back.
[Jagra shoots his lightning bolt, hitting Ureos and burning the web that held him. The lighning continues and damages Cyclops #6. Ureos makes his save (natural 20, 10 damage), but the unaware cyclops don´t (20 damage)
Amira casts Haste. With the aid of the increased movement, Menghil tumbles behind #7 and attacks, scoring a good hit (26 damage). Shin´nairo finishes him.
Since Al-Khazad doesn´t have the Quick Draw feat, he can´t use iterative attacks with thrown weapons. He moves forward and throws a dagger at #3, hitting despite the vegetation´s cover (12 damage)
Akeeta appears, suffers an AoO (6 damage) and falls on #3´s back, hitting with one claw (13 damage)
Ureos shoots another lightning bolt at Jagra, who makes his save this time (evasion, 0 damage)
The three trapped cyclopses can´t move. #2 throws a hand axe at Menghil (8 damage) while #3 attacks Akeeta (rolled really well: three hits, one critical, total 39 damage thanks to favored enemy bonus.)
Pesetokos and one cyclops fight.
Status: Jagra 26/53, Shin´nairo 59/70, Menghil 75/83, Akeeta 13/58. Everyone but Akeeta is Hasted, Menghil is raging, Amira has Mage armor active.]
(Ureos is the red ball. It was the same the last battle, and was the guy that shoot the lightning bolt the last round; I believed it was clear enough, so I´ll correct that the next maps. Cyclops #2 (sky blue ball) is 15 feet north of Menghil. He moved there just after Ureos cast his second LB, so he wasn´t afected by any of them)
Menghil ignores the axe in his back and darts towards the cyclops next to him, Amira's spell making his blade flash back and forth at an incredible speed as he swings again and again at the one eyed warrior that the capn's woman battled.
[ooc - full attack +18/+18/+13, 1d6+11 dmg, +3d6 sneak attack.]
The display of magic and steel continues. Menghil finishes one cyclops with a brutal slash from his blade. The falling giant allows Akeeta to fall back and lick her wounds. A dagger sinks in one of the cyclopses´ body, and Shin´nairo charges the distracted foe, but trips on a root and almost falls, giving her target time enough to pummer her with the axe´s handle, and then three glowing darts hit her in the chest. Amira counters the spell with a lightning bolt of her own that burns it´s path through the jungle and the bodies of two giants.
[Menghil move 5 feet south and attacks the cyclops, killing it with the first (critical) hit.
Being #3 dead, Al-Khazad throws another dagger to #2, dealing 12 damage
Amira shoots another ligthning bolt that hits Ureos and cyclops #3, and freeing him from the Web as well. Damage is (lots of 6s!) 31; Ureos is lucky, but the cyclops is not.
Akeeta fast heals 2 and backs up a little.
Jagra casts Invisibility and draws a healing potion (note that you can´t cast and drink in the same round)
Shin´nairo goes for cyclops #2, and fails (nat 1). The giant counterattacks, and gets only one hit (counting the attack of opportunity) Damage is 11.
#4 frees himself from the web. The now free #5 advances and throws an axe at Shin´nairo, but fails again.
Frustrated by the lack of success of his lighning bolts, Ureos changes to empowered Magic Missiles this time, wounding Shin´nairo (18 damage).
