     Game Update #306 in sequence (file #502)
     Admin notes: None
     [Recap]     - None
     [New Stuff  - Current Situation]

        From Z'leyra: [Re: Actions]
          Z'leyra figures that she probably won't have time to search
          the priestess before dealing with the critters or healing
          party members.

          She will help any that reach her and need healing. She will
          participate in any group attack on the dragon or firehound
          where the creature comes through a doorway and is surrounded
          by the party attacking it.
        GM: Ack.

        From Unali: [Re: Actions]
          As Unali passes Sava she will tell her "Come, time to leave
          here. Run!"

          She will turn once at the exit to see if everyone gets out of
          the large hall safely, but doesn't feel that this is the best
          spot for a last stand.   There is a door in the next room we
          didn't blow up, so that would be a better spot.
        GM: Ack.  yes I have a new map to show that location roughly.

        From Ben'Dar: [Re: Actions]
          Ben'Dar veers to the west, sliding in behind Unali and Cholan
          and slowing briefly, if necessary, to allow Unali and Cholan
          to pass him. Having heard the scream and seeing the stumbling,
          bleeding Cholan heading south, Ben'Dar decides some help is in
          order.  Motioning them urgently toward the southern end of the
          room, he shouts "Go! Go! Go!"

          Ben'Dar will fall in behind them, keeping in between them and
          the hounds.  If one of those hounds tries to take another bite
          out of Cholan, Ben'Dar will offer it the business end of his
          spear instead.  :)  As Ben'Dar continues to retreat to the
          south, he keeps watch over his shoulder.  If one of the
          hounds charges in his direction, he will whirl around and
          attack, trying to buy time for the injured party members who
          are retreating in front of him.

          Ben'Dar will also keep an eye on Farseeker, who is basically
          surrounded by hounds at this point and heavily injured if I
          remember correctly.  If Farseeker stops to fight or gets knocked
          down or something, Ben'Dar will dash back and help him fight off
          the hounds.  If that happens, he will also call to Kasha and
          motion to him to help as well, since he's still north of
          Ben'Dar's position.

          I know there are a lot of "ifs" there...  sorry.........

          OOC question for the group...  Are we running away completely
          (i.e. thru the stone/metal door and wedge it shut behind us
          and get the heck out of here) or are we going to try some kind
          of combined defense at the southern entrance to this room?
          I'm sorta leaning toward running away completely after seeing
          how that dragon swatted Jordi up against the wall and how it
          seems to be totally unconcerned with the punishment Kasha was
          dealing out to it... Thoughts?

          OOC Question for Jordi...  I have no idea if Jordi can escape
          his predicament or not on his own.  I know you've got magic -
          think you can escape or do we need to be moving back toward
          you to create a distraction and/or give you some assistance?
          Ben'Dar certainly has no idea, but I'm sure others (Neva?)
          would know and might direct us back up there if they think
          Jordi has no way of escaping on his own.

          OOC question for GM...  Are these sorts of OOC questions/
          conversations encouraged or should I just stick to what Ben'Dar
          can actually say in-game?  Just wondering what's preferred.
        GM:  Ack.  As to plan once everyone leaves that's up to you
          guys. :) As to OOCs they are fine.  you can slso directly
          email a person or post actions on the list and thus folks
          will see and be able to react to them before they get to the
          update.  So yes they are fine. 

        From Jordi: [Re: Actions]
          Jordi simply yells:  "Run, Run!!!"
          Now that the mist has disappeared (OOC: the mist disappears
          when Jordi is damaged; I didn't read that Jordi has received
          any damaged, but I imagine that being thrown against a wall,
          even if no HP are involved, counts as damage, because in the
          map there is no mist; or perhaps it disappeared because the
          wind dispersed it...) Jordi is facing the dragon, unable to
          even raise a sword in self- defense, inmobile against a wall.
          To the south, he sees Neva flee, and knowing that she will
          survive calms him. He begins to cast the words of another
          "concealing mist" spell, hoping that it will make the dragon
          lost some seconds before it kills Jordi; seconds that perhaps
          save the life of another party members.

          Then, he feels some hands grabbing him from the wall.
          "Caladan friends" -thinks Jordi- "perhaps I'm not dead..."
          He tries to remain motionless, hoping that it will help the
          creatures to take him away from the dragon. And if he's wrong...
          well, then it doesn't matter.

          OOC question: Ben'dar only knows that Jordi was able, using
          magic, to discover that allowed free passage throught the
          defenses of the 6th level, plus some healing magic and the mist.
          He knows that Jordi has no means of crossing a solid wall -if
          he was able to do it, he should have used it instead of
          entering throught the door-.  About decisions... well, Jordi is
          clearing yelling "run, run".
        GM: Ack.  Mist is still there.  You weren't damaged enough to
          have it negated.  In my mind enough damage would be 1 hp.  But
          the bruises and sores from impact on the wall would not cause
          that with your armor and clothing.  Just bruises.  So the mist
          is still there.  


      Time: Estimated  7:21am-7:36am  - Morning Day 22

         Turn 2: Phase 1

         [Mana Allocation] - None
         [Missile Fire]    - None
         [Magic Effect]

           [The wind continues to buffet Jordi against the ground nad
            wall so much that he can barely keep from breathing by
            force of will...]

         [Melee & Movement]

           [Thig flies the rest of the way out of the Throne room and
            leaves the area..]

           [Farseeker knows he has two choices.  Stay and fight and
            possibly die here as two attack him or run for it and
            have a chance to flee.  He decides running is his best
            option.  Being too wounded.  He runs about 25 feet then
            twists and faces the hounds with sword raised in parry
            while going the last 5 feet or so toward the exit backwards.]

          [Trembyl stands firm.  Watching the dragon now in full
           view and the hounds over his shoulder.  He quickly spies
           south and finds folks are still fleeing.  His plan can't
           be done yet...]

          [Unali passes by Sava telling her to run and continues south..]

          [One hellhound charges after Kasha and gets behind hin trying
           to nip his rear leg.  He bites but does only 2 points of
          GM: Rolled a severe hit but only a rolled 1+2=3 points..whew!

          [Second hellhound charges after Farseeker and tries to bite
           him as well but finds the sword is too much to get around
           and does not hit the man.]

          [Ben'dar sees Farseeker attacked only feet away and runs
           to help him.  He tries to spear the hound but fails to hit.]

          [Caladan follows Neva out of the throne room...]

          [Wi leaves and enters the hallway where Z'leyra is already
           sitting and few of the diplomats are standing.]

          [Kasha decides to look over his shoulder and sees Trembyl
           just standing in the distance holding the staff.  Maybe
           that was his voice he heard to flee the area.  He sees
           the hound at his heels and decides to run for it.  He
           heads south and rounds around the pillar out of sight.]

          [Cholan heads toward the exit while blood leaves his hand
           in spurts...]

          [Z'leyra stands and views everyone.  Chion is sleeping..
           Have 2 bodies...diplomats seem in fair shape...she
           makes sure no one needs immediate attention..]

          [Jordi looks up to see the dark form above him...]
          GM: As per last update bottom.
          [Jordi doesn't know what he is seeing.  The mist is still
           there and he sees a set of eyes...that..are..glowing?
           then two hands with sharp looking claws..could this be
           another demon or summoned beast?...to die without the
           ability to even defend himself?  As the hands touch him
           he feels hardness in them and a slight jolt as he is
           moved...then ...darkness..]

         [Suresh plops the unconscious body of Chion down on the
          floor and slumps to take a breath....he wills himself
          to get energy back to help the others..]

         [Ris sees Chion and backs away as far away as he can..]

         [Both Xian and Aren get to the entrance to the throne room.]

         [Sava heads to the south..]

         [The dragon moves...it twists to the NW and walks/waddles
          toward where Jordi is...there is still a bit of mist there
          so it sniffs the airs and claws the ground..but does not
          hit anything...it then turns and twists to eye Trembyl
          and walks that way but is at least 5 feet away...]

         Turn 2: Phase 2

         [Mana Allocation] - None

            [Trembyl has two choices now.  To save folks against the
             hounds or the more fierce dragon now on the rampage.
             He rather go against the hounds first but can't with
             the dragon only feet away.  He decides the dragon must
             be dealt with first...]

         [Missile Fire]    - None
         [Magic Effect]    -

           [The wind continues even after the dragon moves from
            his last position to the area where Jordi was thrown
            back against the wall...]

           [Trembyl raises the staff toward the dragon then with one
            firm hand slams it against the ground while speaking
            a few words of magic creation.  Suddenly the entire cave
            begins to rumble and sand and dust begin to shower the
            entire northern end of the room.  Al those in the cave
            can see the results or hear it or feel it.  Those still
            in the cave that know something is up are: Farseeker,
            Ben'dar, Kasha, Unali, Cholan, Xian, Aren and Sava.
            Those who see the actual event below are Farseeker and
            Ben'dar.  All others feel the rumble, shake and dust
            and sand falling from the ceiling as if the entire
            mountain is about to go...but in fact only a great
            avalanche of rocks from the Rows A-I are affected
            directly by the great avalanche spell.  Huge boulders
            and rocks begin to fall all around Trembyl.  The pillars
            begin to shake back and forth.  Great amounts of sand fall
            to the ground.  Then small rocks..pebbles...hand size
            rocks and then finally large rocks as large as a hellhound
            fall from the ceiling.  Two large boulders hit the throne
            and destroy it with the body of the bodyguard.  The dragon
            becomes nervous at the rumbling and confused.  Suddenly
            its large 45 foot dragon body begins to be pelted by rocks
            and boulders all over its body.  A large boulder the size
            of a large bull cow falls on to the back of the dragon and
            causes him to flatten against the ground and lose his breath
            which flies toward trembyl.  The total damage from the rocks
            amount to 17 points but its tough hide protects against most
            but it still takes 13 points...this together with the
            damage done by Kasha...knocks it out and to the ground..
            parts of its body is completely covered in rocks and sand
            while others like its head, neck, right wing and tail are
            not covered by anything...its eyes close and the tail stops
            to move..

            Unfournately trembyl is also among the falling rocks...
            rocks the size of car wheels impact on him as well though
            he dodges most (knowing what is about to occur) he still
            takes 15 points of smashing damage and is slightly buried
            by the rocks..]

            [One of the hounds at J5 on the outskirts of the falling
             rocks is slightly affected and takes 10 points from
             cuts and bruises/impacts from rocks.  The hellhound is
             crushed under rocks..]

         [Melee & Movement]

            [Farseeker sees Trembyl crushed under rocks.  He remembers
             being crushed as well previously and decides not to flee
             he swings at the hellhound...The great sword slices the
             leg off doing 12 points.  The already wounded hellhound
             is killed the blow..]

            [Everyone leaves the room...]

            [At this point end of the phase ends with Farseeker and
             Ben'dar and Trembyl and Jordi? last in the room..]

            [Combat is over effectively.  Hellhounds killed.]

      All those who exited the room are in areas K-L 11-14 where
      P is.  Just in the hallway.  Combat ends.  I'll jump and assume
      the following actions...

      The rocks continue to fall for about 4 seconds all around.  Ben'dar
      and Farseeker wait for it to end.  Those outside hear the rumble
      and become nervous as to what is going on.  they see dust float
      out into the hallway where they are.  As the dust clears Farseeker
      runs to help Trembyl...Ben'dar runs to the dragon to check it
      after watching the other hellhound die. He fins the dragon knocked
      out but alive.  He takes his spear and stabs the dragon in the
      head where the brain and eye sockets are.  The final damage finally
      kills the dragon and its breath ends.  Its lungs stop and the
      rest of the body collapses as rocks fall around its body.  Ben'dar
      leaps as a boulder slides from his shoulder and almost hits him.
      Ben'dar raises his spear in triumph and gives a battle yelp.

      Farseeker continues to dig out Trembyl.  Thig peeks around the
      corner and sees Farseeker.  He turns to the others and yells
      "They need help.  Looks like battle is over!"

      [Unali, Kasha, Suresh, Z'leyra all run into the cave and help
       dig Trembyl out.  They find a leg is badly bleeding but most
       of the damage is from crushing rocks before buried.  He
       is still alive.  They eye the situation as the once clean
       room is a mess of rocks and sand.]

      [Neva goes running past toward the throne to where Jordi is.
       She and Thig continue to search where they thought he was
       but finds nothing but rocks and a broken throne.  But there
       is no Jordi...Neva starts to cry silently as they continue
       to look behind the throne..]

      [Z'leyra begins to treat minor wounds first and check for
       any life threatening wounds...]

      [See next post...update supplement![
