Default Re: [DFRPG] Crawl! IC

Bain waits for Vic and Gathika to move out of the way before he unleashes three arrows at bugs.

One arrow strikes an ant grappling with Cleave, killing it. It explodes...
(OC: the explosion is 6d crushing, centered on the hex where Cleave is, rolled 14.)
Cleave is caught in the explosion, as is the fainted bug who dies and ALSO EXPLODES. The second bug chewing on Cleave takes the full brunt of both blow-ups and dies, becoming a poisonous sludge.
(OC: the second explosions rolls a nice round 12 for damage. Cleave takes more damage. Telrith, you are about 3 yards away from Cleave, right? The explosions only 2+1 damage to you (DR protects), in that case.)

The second arrow hits the ant that Vic parried. It dies, dissolving into acid. Gross.

The third arrow flies the truest and absolutely murders the insect that furthest away. It, too, melts into corrosive liquid.

4 ants have perished. The last three bugs are chasing after Telrith...

Telrith dismisses his spells and prepares to dodge the three monsters...

Cleave is left scarred by the blasts. It slows down and tries to steady itself...

TURN 6

The last three giant insects do not hesitate to close in on Telrith, with almost mechanical violence...

The 3 ants strike, all attacks connect:
12 (7), 12 (9), 12 (5).

Injury as follows (prior to DR and penetration multiplier):
1, 3, 1.

retreating and focusing on the dodge, telrith keeps distance between him and the ants. 1 yard left



I thought telrith was 2 yards away from the ants, having both retreated ant attack and having them attack him this time. That would mean the reach C ants couldn't attack with a standard attack.



Just yet another request to pay attention to distances.

Bain holds off on firing until Telrith retreats a little.
Then he shoots all three of the last monsters, and kills them.

One explodes into a nasty shockwave.
The others become burning liquid as the arrows and blast hit them.

(OC: explosion 6d crushing damage roll; 17. Telrith, you are 1 yard away, you suffer 6 damage before DR.)

Combat over.

The party is once again left alone in the wilderness, without even corpses to give them company.
The gross and harmful liquids of the dead ants neutralize and dissipate within 6 minutes.

They all sleep uneasy that night...

DAY 29

The party wakes up the next day and continues their journey to the Caves.
(No random encounter.)

When the sun goes down, they settle into a camp just within viewing distance of the Caves. It is too dangerous to keep hiking.

(The usual camping protocol, I take it?)

Gathika steps back and takes an all-out defensive stance, SHE SINGS:

( ↀДↀ)✧ Blast them away in pieces, this is the LAST RESORT!
WE ARE SEARCHING FOR MENDEL!
Finding nothing, but questions and devils!

Losing their limbs
Wish somebody told me they ‘spode
Losing their limbs
Wish somebody told me we’re fine

After the battle Gathika tries conventional medicine on Telrith 13/15 and fails, (because she is just poking his burns and rubbing dirt on him). But then Gathika casts minor healing two times, for 3 HP each.

Both are OK, 14/6 and 14/11.

COMRADE YOU WILL BE OK, DUST TO DUST!

Gathika rests and tries healing herself and Vic (both should be 1-3 HP down).

Her conventional medicine works on Vic, esoteric medicine 13/11 (first aid) and 13/8 (medical care)
She rubs innocous "ant dirt" on Vic and restores 2 HP.

She has a bit of trouble healing Vic with magic, but makes it 14-2/7 and restores his remaining HP.

YOU WILL BE OK! IF YOU THINK YOU CAN!

She takes a small nap and then tries healing herself with 13-3/12, but fails! Anyway, she casts minor healing 14-3/9 on herself and fully restores her HP.

This is what you see this time...

With the combat over, Bain cuts the height by 1 yard and then makes an acrobatic drop (12) 9.
He sings along his friends the following lines:


Would it be wrong, would it be right?
Precious friends hid in death's dateless night.
Not all is right, not all is fine.
Feeding in chaos and living in sin!

But you must go, living this way, UNTIL IS RIGHT!

Good job, everybody!


Then Bain recovers his arrows, and goes to sleep, anticipating the future.

The party is awakened that night by the noisemaker traps going off.
Coming in from the forest are six large canines, each 10 yards away, hungry and snarling...

Combat starts.
