Game Update #275 in sequence (file #467)
Admin notes: None
[Recap] - None
[New Stuff - Current Situation]
From Z'leyra: [Re: Actions]
Oh joy. Dredging up a couple more mana points Z'leyra
casts an EL0 Healing (Sidh) on Trembyl and coats the
burns with balm, hoping that the others have completely
gotten rid of the Slime so that the Slime won't cause
Z'leyra cannot cast a strong enough dispel to counter
the Slime. She doesn't have any water spells to wash it
away. She hopes Valgor and Thig can move out of the
slime while insubstantial. If necessary she will go
insubstantial and fetch them then heal them. Not a move
she is eager to do on her last dregs of mana. "Need
strong dispel or whole lotta water. Can anyone
insubstantially fetch Thig? If not, I will go." Said
with a grimace.
From Unali: [Re: Actions]
She will explore that one quickly and then move over
to the west.
As soon as she is sure these are the stair up and
nothing more, she will run towards Aren and others,
closing the door after her. When she reaches Aren,
she will look him over. She will soon find out he is
ok and she sees that Zleyra is tending to Trembyl. She
believes there is not much she can do right now. She
won't move south at first, but checks if all rooms to
the west have been explored. Some door still are clsoed,
have those been examined? (A,C,K?)
Only when someone informs her specifically of the
situation Thig is in, she will break her search of the
rooms and ask: "Where is Xian? He might be able to help."
GM: Did some talking with Z'leyra dnd email with Unali on
the actions so it was more here than reported. Just a note.
From Jordi: [Re: Actions]
Keep on running. Once Jordi arrives to the "critical
area", if there is time (I doubt), he will draw his
bow and begin to fire, first on the nearest guard,
when he is dead or he retreats into a room, engage
with missile fire the bodyguard, using the corner as
cover. We will need to clear the corridor if we want
to have a chance to cross that pit.
Time: Estimated 6:48am-7:03am - Morning Day 22
[West Hallway - South]
[Kaylle and Aren get their water containers they have
and saturate the legs, thighs and feet of Trembyl.
While Z'leyra casts a healing spell. She knows she
only has one chance. If she fails the spell he'll
likely be unrecoverable. She also knows she can't
do healing using her healer skill on him due to
time constraints. His only hope is the spell.
She lays hands on a clear spot on his chest and
a grayish hue emits from her hands. At least there
was fireworks. She checks the pulse....]
[East Hallway - North]
[Unali checks the next door over and finds its the
familiar slant of stairs. She listens and hears
no movement or voices....]
[West Hallway - North]
[Farseeker seeing Z'leyra leaves grabs the arm of
Xian on the way.]
Farseeker: "Trouble. You didn't hear?"
Xian: "Sorry was intrigued by the door?"
Farseeker: "The door? [He turns back] Neva can you
stay here for a few minutes? Keep your bow aimed
at that the doors we didn't open. We'll be right
[North Hallway - North]
[Triest and the others enter the main hallway and see
Jordi and others running west. They wonder what is
[West Hallway - South]
[Z'leyra checks for a pulse and finds none. She sighs.
She shakes her head.]
Aren: "It was an ambush..or.."
[Z'leyra begins to stand when she notices the lips
part ever so slightly on Trembyl. She checks the
neck pulse again and finds a faint one. It slowly
builds up. Yes!]
Aren: "Is he alive?"
[Z'leyra nods then grabs her back of healing herbs
and burn ointment. The ointment will help with
the leg acid burns to some extent.]
Kaylle: "He took massive damage it'll be a long
while before he wakes up likely. We may have
to transport him down to the main cave."
Aren: [Remembers] "Thig!"
[North Hallway - North]
[Jordi and others almost reach the corner and notice
Farseeker and Xian coming this way as well. But
both do not round the corner yet.]
[Unali backs up to the door and re-enters the
main hall. She figures based on the distance and
the wooden door and distance upwards (usually
some 30-45 feet of the 'stairs' going up to the
next level) that those above likely did not hear
the warning. She hopes...]
[West Hallway - South]
[Z'leyra applies ointment and with Aren helps finish
the water cleaning. The slime still seems to squirm
a bit near the wall but is not moving that was
cleaned off. Kaylle flies to the edge of the pool
and notices Thig. He doesn't see Valgor.]
[West Hallway - North]
[Jordi's group is first to round the corner. Then
Farseeker and Xian. Triest's group heads westward
curious as to what's going on and needing a update.]
[West Hallway - South]
[By now at least 2 phases have gone by since Thig has
been in contact with Valgor. Stunned from the damage
he tries to concentrate ignoring everything else.
Kaylle yells to him but he ignores that, he ignores
the slime and the guards in the distance. He uses
his will to move his ghostly form with Valgor in
toe. Weightless its still a struggle as it becomes
a strength of will rather than physical strength.
Valgor is clearly unconscious and can't will himself
to move. Kaylle hovers over the slime pool but is
helpless. Slowly Thig begins to move an inch...then
a foot..then 2 feet..]
[Two more phases..]
[Farseeker and Jordi finally reach the group. Aren
quickly summarizes what happened. Farseeker gets
tot the edge with Kaylle]
Farseeker: "What happens when he gets solid?"
Kaylle: "You don't want to know. Valgor seems
badly damaged. Thig may be able to avoid the
brunt of damage but his hands will be affected."
Farseeker: "How long before the spell ends?"
Kaylle: "I don't know."
[By now Thig and Valgor's ghostly forms move a few more
feet but still got some 8 feet to go....]
Aren: "Everyone get your water out. We'll need it to
bathe Valgor and get to Thig's hands."
[Everyone that isn't doing anything does so and grabs
their water bottles or flasks on their belts or
pouches. Thig continues to concentrate ignoring
more instructions from Kaylle. Finally they only
have 3 feet more to go.]
Xian: "Its a shame Trembyl is unconscious he is our
elemental person. He would surely know something
about water magic."
[Two feet...one foot..Thig finally gets beyond the
pool and tries to move further away. His face is
pure exhaustion and concentration. Valgor is
laying flat and looks to be 'dragged'. He is not
moving at all.]
Xian: "Hes not breathing!"
[Z'leyra looks up as Xian drops his Staff and readies
a healing spell. Thig and Valgor make it 2 more
feet and thig stops. He looks up and finally his
concentration ebbs. In his ghostly voice he speaks.]
Thig: "The spell is about to end. Care to hi--"
[Just then they both become solid. Thig though hovering
falls to the ground exhausted. Valgor just quietly
slips to the floor on his back. The slime begins
to move again all over his body. It has eaten most
of the clothing and gear if not all by now. The
group douses him with water and Xian leans down to
heal as Z'leyra checks his neck. No pulse.]
[A weird acidic smoke fills over the body and a foul
smelling of decaying material from clothes flesh fills
the nostrils of most. Xian casts his healing spell but
it just lights up the chest. No pulse. He looks at
Z'leyra. She shakes her head and sighs.]
Thig: "Help him!"
[Xian sits back on his behind and pulls his knees to his
chest. He shakes his head.]
Xian: "its too late. Look at him. He was covered. It
continued to burn skin. Look at his legs his bones
are starting to show. Even a great healing would not
Thig: "No! I can regenerate him!" [He stands]
[Kaylle holds him back.]
Kaylle: "Its too late. Look at his head. Look!"
[Thig looks and notices his lips are gone. His nose
is almost gone and his eyes have burst open. Even
if he would live it would be no hope of a normal
life. Thig nods and looks down stopping.]
Thig: "I tried to help him. I wasn't powerful enough
to stop the spell. He also tried to do a spell but
I guess he didn't have the speed to cast it fast enough."
[Farseeker and Xian watch Thig in amazement. They know
Thig has always been a harsh person. Heck he even tried
to feed a sailor to his own dogs. Though there was
doubt if he actually did or not. But to see this scene
and the emotion they wonder if hes changed.]
[Thig had his hands burn slightly but was able to just
slip off his glove where he touched Valgor.
[The boots of Trembyl's is completly destroyed and useless
eaten from the acid. His pants which are off him now
are tattered but could be cut into shorts. Valgor
however everything on him is destroyed. Even down to
his chainmail is useless now. He must've been in
the slime for 5-10 seconds.]
[Morale lowers especially on the diplomat side.]
[Farseeker turns to the group after watching the slime
and area. By then (30 seconds after Thig/Valgor get
solid) Triest's group gets there. Six seconds later
Unali arrives on the scene. The last to see the
site. Xian quietly fills her and Triest's group in.]
Thig: "Theres a priestess around the corner. If there
are stairs in that area she surely fled to get help."
Kaylle: "I only see 2 guards in the distance both with
melee weapons only. They are waiting for us it seems.
They are also trapped by the slime. It seems to
cover the entire hallway from wall to wall, north to
south and from one wall to about 30 feet down the hall."
Farseeker: "So how do we get there or do we just leave
them? If the stairs are that way then we'll need
to get there or we could all leave now?"
Xian: "That's it? Just leave? If we leave we may not
find out if they have more fleets or bases or things
related to their project."
Aren: "i have a feeling we've yet to find the leaders.
So far just guards. This priestess is the first
in the mountain."
Thig: "She is powerful. This slime pit is still going on."
Kaylle: "I've read about slime used during warfare. A
powerful spell like she seems to have used could last
for more than two days!"
Farseeker: "Two days? We don't have time for that long.
By then the prison will be found out and surely they'll
come here and send for reinforcements."
Xian: "Well Thig and Kaylle could fly there. I'm sure
some of us might have teleport spells. But we'd
have to pick who goes. I could teleport. We
could go non-solid and walk through but duration of
the spell could be critical. The slime is large.
Caladan, Chion, Jordi, and Z'leyra could have options
as well. But we don't know if the priestess is still
there and what other powers she has."
Farseeker: "Some of us need to return north to the
tunnel west. Theres at least one guy still locked
up inside one room. Theres three doors still
unchecked in that area."
Kaylle: "I believe the east side is all explored."
Xian: "Oh! One door up there has a gem inset into the
door. I need to inspect it further. But I recognize
the style. Its my brother's, Timon, usual setup.
Its unpickable and tends to reinforce the door. But
I may have a way to enter."
Farseeker: "So that confirms he is here then?"
Suresh: "Your brother?"
Xian: "Long story."
Kaylle: "If we found offices to the north then it could
be assumed that if the priestess is here that their
offices are in this hallway here. Which means
they could have important information."
Thig: "She did have a bodyguard with a arbalest and
another guard exit that far room. That was the only
missile weapon I saw."

Unfournately I tried everything as a GM to help Valgor. But
there was nothing I could do. He already had a light 5 point
wound. From 22 he was down to 17. At that point from the
slime he took over 27 points. With only a -3 DTV. He would
have needed 15-20 points of healing instantly to even attempt
to help but he was dead when he hit the ground sadly. Our
first character class player gone. He just was only one
phase from survival by casting a insubstantial spell but his
casting speed wasn't high enough. Just one phase...:<
At this point there are two areas left. The three doors to
the North-West. The south tunnel with the slime. At this
point only Unali knows of the true stair location.
BTW, if anyone looks the door at L21 across from where the
party is now is completely gone. The slime has eaten
the door and it feel into the room. It was covered by
slime which entered the room. It seems to have moved in (the
slime) about 15 feet or half the room. OPn the far side of
the room across the hall is a desk and a bookcase behind it.
For those seeing it it may be that the other doors near the
slime would be in the same shape.
