[Recap] - None
[New Stuff - Current Situation]
From Jordi: [Re: Actions]
OOC: After thinking some time about it, I have decided that
Jordi won't vote in this issue. He was rescued from the jail
by the party, and doesn't feel too comfortable voting in this
particular issue. He feel all right voting about tactical or
strategical decisions, but not about this. So he lets it to
the rest of the group to decide
Jordi will cast invisibility spells and speed spells on the
flying party as needed. Then, he will prepare himself for
combat in the ship:
"I suggest closing & blocking the access from the rest of the
complex to this cave. In that way, we won't have a retreat
route, but if the gargolyes enter their nest in their upper
levels, they won't be able to surround us descending through
the staircases and attacking us from the rear."
Jordi look at the ship:
"If there are firing platforms in the top of the masts, we
can place some archers there. They should also be armed
for a melee combat, just in case the gargolyes attack them."
Jordi feels almost sick when he says this. In all the
combats the party has made, Neva has been in the rearguard,
in a "sure" position. Now, she will be placed in a position
where she will be in danger...
OOC: Jordi has a bow, so he can place himself with Neva in a
high position to fire. But he can also place himself in a
first line position. It depends on our current amount of
archers & front line fighters. If, after casting magic on
the "flying party" he has no mana left, he will ask for a
firing place, near Neva; if he has some mana left, he will
ask for a front line position.
GM: A) Ack. We'll see how Chion votes.
B) Inviso can't be cast on others. Speed can. Ack on
[The party parts in every direction in preparation for battle.]
[Cholan is stored safely in the hallway disabled at this time.]
[Marta, Qorz, Talz stay in main cave and watch the prisoners
now stored there.]
[Balrog, Damon, Farseeker, Suresh hurry to the raft and cross
over to the warship's decks. They prepare the arrow weapons
for combat if the climans should enter the cave.]
[Ben'dar, Aren, Kasha stay in the small cave where the hole
to the outside is. They will eventually hide in the hallway
in case invasion from that point to attack anyone.]
[Triest and Unali take up space in the next cave over (in same
sea cave - see map) the warehouse area. They prepare their
bow and crossbow. To get anyone entering the main cave entrance
that way. They are also connected to the others and can backup
Ben'dar and others if needed.]
[Trembyl and Xian stand in the main cave with Arbalasts in case
they need to attack at long range. Trembyl also needs to keep
an eye out in cae he needs to use the staff so both stand by
the cloth clothing and peer into the sky through a cut out hole.]
[Diplomats split up. 3 Join the Main cave as guards of the
prisoners. Seven join Ben'dar's group in the hallway to join
in the melee i needed. Seven others join in the warship
with Farseeker's group to help protect them and fight if
[Finally, Chion, Neva, Jordi and 5 diplomats run as fast as
they can toward the Gargoyle perch cave a level up. The
diplomats will add protection and the other 3 can be archers
from the gargoyle cave if needed to fire from above. With
Jordi's suggestion they can always retreat and lock the outer
door to block the gargoyles in.]
GM: Since no one had specific locations this is the best
alotment I could figure out some through random methods.
[Caladan considers his options and takes the feather but
wonders if he could handle other things.]
[Kaylle looks at the ship and calculates based on Damon's
Kaylle: "We'll never fly that fast to get there before it probably
Thig: "No worry. I'll teleport us behind the ship without
having to fly."
[Z'leyra walks to the other room and begins to undress to nothing.
[Caladan soon joins her carrying his firesnake. Caladan also
begins to undress and leave his gear. Caladan doesn't try
to get a glance at Z'leyra in the corner but occasionally in
a twist he gets a glimpse. But for the most part both humans
of the same general age and appearance (looks) respect each
other and keep backs to each other as they undress. As he
undresses he decides mentally what he should do. Instead of
the dragon scale he grabs the feather.]
[As Z'leyra nears the undressing she casts Invisibility on
herself and she disappears.]
[Z'leyra finishes her undergarments and within a few seconds
quickly changes to a eagle. She turns just in time to
get a glance at Caladan as his slim naked body changes to
a eagle as well.]
GM: He could've tried the dragon but he has his reasons.
[Both eagles fly into the other room just as the shadow
creature that was watching both humans undress fades into
the wall behind them. Now it knows wht the true human
form and both genders look like...]
[Jordi waits before going up to join the others and after
finding the right eagle casts Speed on Z'leyra.]
[Jordi then runs off to join the others quickly.]
[Thig has everyone use their fingers or claws or wing to
touch him and prepares them for a gravity fall. He then
looks out toward the cloud and plots a teleport point in
front of the ship. Then suddenly all four disappear.
Before then Kaylle and Thig turned invisible as well
through their innate or trained magic. Now only one
visible is the Eagle of Caladan and the hippogriff that
Z'leyra was in contact with. She had arranged for it
to be near the water and ships in case she needed it to
be loaded into the hold so was nearby.]
[Both invisible faerry, visible hippogriff, visible eagle
and invisible eagle (Z'leyra) suddenly find themselves
dropping a few quick feet down as they are about a mile
and a half up in the air. The cloud they appeared in
is very thin though and not much cover. Everyone begins
their method of flight through wings to gain mobility in
the air and separate from each other. As they gain their
bearings and stomach catches up to their body they eye the
cloud with dark forms approaching fast. It seems the
cloud is moving with the ship and the parts of the ship
either the front, masts or occasionally a person on deck
is seen through the thicker cloud. The small group only
has about 15 seconds before suddenly the thicker cloud
overtakes theirs and they are among the actual ship.
Thig having cast a insubstantial spell seconds after reaching
their spot impacts into the ship and starts to quickly fly
through the ship looking for any prisoners...if he finds any
he plans to send a mental message to Z'leyra.
Kaylle dives to the right (or left of the ship) and tries
to flank to the rear to find a few things to affect in
Caladan flanks to the right and quickly spots a good place
to land. On the deck in the front are about 4 large crates
and he finds space on top of one...He sees maybe a dozen
sailors on deck doing various things but seem to be mostly
dealing with ropes on the deck and ropes on the masting...
Z'leyra invisible flies toward the rear of the ship about
20 feet behind the helmsman spot and lands. She then
quietly changes into a human again...
The hippogriff still sluggish finally dives down and with
some mental orders from Z'leyra dives for the mastsail.
There are currenly about 4 sailors there preparing sails
or taking them down. Not sure. One suddenly looks up
to see only a few feet above them this creature dive for
them and he gives a yelp.
Caladan waddles ontop of one crate and prepares to change
back to human form but he needs a better spot to hide.
As he waddles forward though the top of the lid slightly
open falls under his small weight and he gives a squak just
as he falls into the crate and the box lid falls ontop
of him...the firesnake that was with him scatters in
another direction and circles back..
Kaylle lands on the deck invisible and finds in the
rear is a female dressed in a long white dress which
must be the priestess. She is talking quietly to a
man in robes unlike the other sailors and must be her
personal bodyguard. Kaylle eyes them both to figure
out what they might be up to...
Z'leyra now in human form again stands and walks slowly
to the area where the jars should be. Just below the
steering wheel. But the helmsman is still standing in
front of the wheel oblivious to the hippogriff.
Suddenly 2 more sailors give a yelp as they spot the
hippogriff trying to grab at the sail and rip it while
grabbing ropes. The sailors quickly panic and scatter.
This brings the attention of the Priestess and Helmsman
who turn to the loud noises.
Thig continues to fly through the ship first going throught
he gargoyle, smelly area. Oddly seem to perk up when
flies through as he roughly estimates 20-30 of them. He
then flies through the first deck of quarters and finds only
sailors in various stations and duties..
Kaylle grabs his faerry short sword and quietly approaches
the bodyguard and Priestess..
Caladan still in eagle form tries to move in the crate but
finds himself engulfed in clothing or cloth of some sort.
The muffled noises suddenly brings a nearby sailor to lift
the lid and look in to see a half covered eagle in clothing.
He gives a startled but nervous laugh and grabs for a dagger.
Suddenly from behind the firesnake dives and bites down on
the sailor's shoulder and he gives a scream out.
The hippogriff dives and tries to claw a sailor nearby
and slices the man's arms as he flails in defense...
The Priestess orders the bodyguard to take care of the
intruder creature. The bodyguard draws a dagger which
begins to glow and runs for the sail area..
Z'leyra finds some rope on a small box and grabs it
which turns it invisible. SHe prepares a noose and
walks quietly toward the helsman who prepares to leave
his post but the Priestess barks a order fo rhim to
stay in place and prepare to descend.
Thig reaches the back of the ship and finds no one so
goes down to the next small level and explore it..
Caladan now uncovered by the clothing changes into
human form and gets ouf of the create naked and
visible. The nearby sailor is writhing in pain and
screaming from the fierce bite. Caladan grabs his
dagger and plunges it into the chest to silence the
Kaylle now behind the Priestess who is barking orders
to the crew including one to get the gargoyles from
below and take care of the intruder...he stabs toward
the back of the Priestess but she suddenly twists and
the sword misses her by a half inch and slices between
the left arm and body. The Priestess doesn't seem to
Z'leyra quickly draws up the rope and throws it over the
head of the hslmsman and pulls and tightens the rope.
The sailor tries to give out a yell but suddenly finds
no voice. He grabs for his neck as Z'leyra pulls back
and pulls the sailor back onto her for leverage.
Suddenly the bodyguard catches up to the hippogriff and
tries to swing at it with his glowing dagger but fails
to hit. However, Z'leyra losing her concentration makes
the hippogriff go docile again. The creature just hovers
for a few seconds and the bodyguard gets a good swing and
slices one wing a quarter the way down its length wounding
Caladan now stands and surveys the ship for action. He
finds himself near the stairs in the front of the ship.
THe other warships have stairs to the rear. Must
be a different layout. He casts fire showers directly
over the entrance to the stairs. A shower of fire rains
down just as a sailor emerges from below deck. He catches
on fire and falls below out of sight.
Thig flies and finds one person alone but discovers he
is not tied up but is just putting items in a bag so
figures him to be a sailor..he continues to fly throught
A few seconds later the Helmsman loses consciousness
and slumps to the deck. Z'leyra releases him and hurries
over to the box case under the wheel where the jar should
be. But as she reaches there she finds it has a small
lock. She prays and pulls but finds it locked. She
Kaylle this time instead of a thrust tries a swing and this
time the blade slices the back of the priestess drawing
blood. She quickly turns to find no one. She backs up
and draws a dagger with one hand and moves her fingers
about in a circle with the other...
Caladan turns to the sail and figures a nice fireball
could take out the sails...
Suddenly from the noise and a sailor stirring them to
action 5 gargoyles lift up from their pit below the
deck and fly out their hatch to the air. They see
the hippogriff and fly toward it..
Z'leyra looks up just in time to see the gargoyles fly
at the sluggish creature. She orders it to fly a bit
away and defend himself as best he can...she then
releases him from her spell and allows him no longer
to be sluggish but at full alert. She quickly looks
back to the dead hslmsman and looks for a key on
him but sees nothing. She looks around the cabinet
to see if there is one but finds nothing.
The bodyguard seeing the gargoyles approach gives up
and turns back to the priestess but notices no one
at the wheel. In fact this cases the rudder to drift
lazily in the wind and friction starts to cause the
ship to list back and forth. He yells that no one
is at the wheel and charges for it..
Suddenly the Priestess casts a spell of Revelation and
suddenly Kaylle becomes visible to her. She smiles and
charges...kaylle doesnt realize this and becomes startled
but he quickly leaps to the air just as she swings at
his feet and misses ...as Kaylle flies up in the air..
The hippogriff gives a roar as he is freed from the spell
of fascination. It spots a human sailor and dives for it
and quickly grabs his arm and then bites the neck of
the man killing him instantly...but now the gargoyles
are on him and one throws a net on him. The hippogriff
tosses back and forth and falls to the deck..
Z'leyra not seeing the bodyguard near looks for anything
around her and finds a metal mug. She grabs it on top
of the cabine and bashes the lock loudly hoping it will
break or shatter or something!
By now thig has completed his quick flight through the
ship and finds no one of prisoner status at least he
thinks...he then dives back up through the decks and
into the sky..
Kaylle glances over to the cabinet where he knows Z'leyra
should be and sees the wood indent slightly nd wonders
then realizes the cabinet much be locked...hovering
over the priestess he glances at her to see if she has
The bodyguard nears the steering wheel and ends up about
2 feet to the left of Z'leyra but sees nothing but the
down helsman. He raises his glowing green dagger and
tries to figure out what's going on then realizes
the jar may be in danger. He approaches the cabinet
and his knees hit the shoulder of Z'leyra who becomes
startled. Sensing danger the dobyguard swings the
dagger but at least 2 feet above the head of the kneeling
z'leyra and misses. Weaponless she starts to pick up
the mug again..
Suddenly all heck breaks loose on and around the ship...
But that's for friday...
Ok...OK! nevermind! I'll finish!
Suddenly the cloud around the ship seems to be getting
thinner as the ship rocks back and forth in the sky.
Trembyl and Xian notice this and wonder what could be
going on. Suddenly Xian sees strange specks behind
the airship. He raises Damon's spyglass and looks at
them. He gasps and then hands the spyglass to Trembyl
Trembyl seems them to..must be..20..30 of them..closing
in on the ship...from the rear..
On the ship suddenly Kaylle is the first to see them.
A horde of flying creatures closing fast.
Suddenly bolts...arrows..and darts fly forward...
at least 5 darts and 3 arrows suddenly impact on
the priestess and treat her like a pincushion. She
gives out a yell of pain and falls to her knees where
Kaylle dives fast and swings his sword finishing her
On the other side the Bodyguard turns to hear the
Priestess scream and sees them approach. He's seen
them before...faerry! At least 2 dozen of them!
He twists and Z'leyra uses the mug to swing but
when the shift rocks back and forth is thrown to the
other side and loses her balance..
At that instant the bodyguard is surrounded by a sparkle
of colors and he screams and falls to his knees. Three
faerry swoop in and with small swords piece him and
Other faerry swarm the other parts of the ship and attack
other sailors...Caladan at this time fires a fireball
into the sails not noticing the attack and it blazes into
fire. Those on the group see the fire burst...
Z'leyra sees the 3 faerry leave and find other prey and
she searches the body and yes! Keys..she quickly stumbles
to the cabinet and after 2 keys finds the right one
and unlocks it. She opens the cabinet doors to find a
glowing energy ball in a famiilar jar. She looks around
and then grabs it. Wondering what's going on here in
the back of her mind.
Unfournately the hippogriff gets out of his net nad attacks
2 gargoyles. He is able to kill both quickly but 3 of
the other gargoyle swarm him and stab him with spears.
When the faerry approach they also attack the gargoyles
and a melee ensues with all 3 creature types. With
4 faerry only 1 is wounded but the gargoyles are all
killed quickly. but unfournately in the melee the
hippogriff's right wing is clipped and he falls down and
down to the sea to impact and unfournately be the first
victim to drown..At least he took out a few before he
Z'leyra grabs the jar and stands up. She hollers out
loud that she has it as it disappears in her hands.
Caladan hears this and backs down and prepares another
shape changing spell.
Thig and Kaylle stare in wonder as the faerry swarm the
ship and wonder what the heck is going on.
Crew is being attacked but 2 faerry are killed in the
As Z'leyra approaches the railing she eyes around to make
sure all are ready. She doesn't spot Caladan but sees
his firesnake hovering down the way. She figures Caladan
is about ready..she counts the few seconds..
Then a eagle takes to the air and flies off the ship that
must be Caladan..she doesn't spot the hippogriff though
or thig/kaylle (invisible still). She figures they
can fly away. She raises a leg to the railing to prepare
to dive off and change to eagle herself. But as she
does she notices her leg becomes visible? Yet her
hands aren't? She wonders what is going on and notices
the jar seems to be warping space and matter around the
jar as it glows stronger. Much stronger than those on
the ground. Maybe this is their active state? Whatever
is going on its affecting her cloaking spell. She
raises the jar up to get a better view and her naked abdomen
becomes visible but not her head.
Suddenly from behind a Faerry raises a club and dives for
her figuring her to be an enemy...
Z'leyra decides that carrying the jar will be harder but
with the nearby rope ties the tip of the jar to her
abdomen so in case she does drop it it will still be
on her body...
As she finishs the knot her head rings out in pain and
suddenly the lights go black..
Thig and Kaylle take to the air and distance themselves
away from the ship. Caladan circles back and sees the
ship in chaos as faerry and human fight and wonders what
the heck is going on.
Suddenly Xian below spots a form falling from the ship
after the hippogriff impacts...this one is human...
wait..its definitely female as she is naked..can only
be Z'leyra. He drops the spyglass to the dirt floor
and quickly spouts a spell.
Z'leyra dazed and eyes closed falls from the ship with
a nice bruise on her head. The jar is now clung to her
abdomen but is now warping the space and her spell. She
is almost fully visible now...
She opens her eye nad finds she is only about 200 feet
from the water...she flaps her arms and realizes she
is still human! She prepares again to tranform to eagle.
Suddenly a form appears below her and she drops fast toward
it. The form grabs her and she stops but both dive down
a few more feet...she recognizes Xian. He must have
teleported to the spot below her. They slow their fall
but begin to pace up again. Xian quickly spouts another
spell and he starts to levitate...theys slow down...and
slow down...then hover..about 38 feet above the ocean..
Z'leyra looks down and then at Xian and grabs him so not
to fall. He looks down and sees how close they are.
He then notices her naked body and grins. She glares at
Xian: "Need a lift?"
By this time the jar has been removed from the ship and
without its powerful magic it quickly and suddenly
lurches. It pitches forward then over again almost
with its front poiting directly down. It falls quickly
and almost overtakes Xian and Z'leyra but misses them
by about 40 feet.
The impact of the ship creates a splash of water that
goes up about 35 feet and this splashes against Xian
and Z'leyra who now become drenched. Xian grins again
at the glisting body of Z'leyra but then wonders how
they can return as his spell won't last forever..
The faerry all seem to have lifted off the ship. No
other gargoyles were able to escape and most never
got out of the hold. The impact was so great that
anyone on top deck were killed instantly. Flooding
will surely kill the others....the mass of faerry
circle and watch the ship sink..
As Xian lifts both of them up about 60 feet he casts
another teleport and they poof back into the cave near
Trembyl. Trembyl eyes both and especially the visible
Z'leyra who runs out of the room for her clothing..
Next update Friday...
[Ran out of time for more...but friday there will be
a bit more stuff :)...hope this was entertaining.
Unfournately ran out of time for far more details I
wanted. Already way past my bed time..]
