     Game Update #11 in sequence (file #39) 
    Admin notes: None

      From Jordi: [Re: Actions]
        Jordi fires to the phyton attacking Chion.  If he doesn't
        kill the phyton, he keeps on firing on the snake.  If he
        kills the phyton, he takes another arrow and prepares himself
        for firing to the fleeing creature.
      GM: Ack.  ...and hope not to shoot Z'leyra :)

      From Ben'dar: [Re: Actions]
        Ben'Dar thinks that Balrog is either unconscious or dead,
        judging by the scream of pain that was suddenly cut off.  So
        he is ready to take down anything that moves in this darkness
        now.  Still...he is not 100% sure and he doesn't want to kill
        his friend by mistake.  Hmmm...decisions, decisions.

        When the unidentified thing bumps into Ben'Dar, his warrior
        instincts take over.  He swings his spear full force at whatever
        it is, trying to smash it into unconsciousness.  His intent is
        to do subdual damage by striking with the shaft of the spear
        rather than the sharp point.  If it is an enemy, it will
        hopefully be incapacitated.  If it is Balrog, hopefully he
        won't be killed.

        Ben'Dar will try to control Tef'wo this phase so that the horse
        doesn't attack the figure.  The horse's attack would not be to

        Whatever is in this darkness knows that Ben'Dar is here now,
        so Ben'Dar is making noise while attacking and moving around.
        ("Balrog?"  "Are you ok?"  "Where are you?" etc).  If the
        moving figure doesn't answer in Balrog's voice, the next
        attack will be with the pointy end of Ben'Dar's spear and
        he'll let Tef'wo attack also.
      GM: Ack.  

      From Unali: [Re: Actions]
        Having Unali attack the other python is OK. She will move
        that way and attck with two daggers offensively.
      GM: Ack. 

      From Strie'bog: [Re: Actions]
        ...He will then look over the field for a new target.   Q:
        Does he hear sounds of a battle from the air?  i.e., the
        flying creature?
        If so, he will start looking for a target in the air.
      GM: Opps.  Thought I answered this :<  No real sounds other
        than the whoosh and flaping of occasional wings.

     [New Stuff]

     Sepes 5, Thusuda in the 163rd Year [TH]
     Location: 14 Miles NW of Maren City, Plains/Road
     Time: 11:39pm, Partly Cloudy, No Moon, Party camp

     [Turn 1: Phase 4]

       [Mana Allocation]

         [Strie'bog and Caladan allocates mana]

       [Missile Fire]

         [Thig aims again at the flying creature and the repeating
          crossbow hits its target but the creatures thick hide
          protects the bulk of damage.]

         [Jordi takes aim at the python reared up at least 4 feet
          above the ground.  He fires his longbow at point blank
          range and hits but only does 5 points but the pythons
          hide protects 4 so python only takes 1 point.]

       [Magic Effect]

         [Caladan finishes his magical words and suddenly a fine
          mist forms around him within 20 feet.  Ben'dar feels
          a tingle of this mist as it falls around him....
          Caladan doesn't hear anyone fall from his sleep mist
          so he curses to himself mentally.  The target's magical
          defense must be strong.]

         [Strie'bog drops his bow and leans down to the nearby
          wounded wolf.  He quickly murmurs a few words and
          a mental prayer and lays hands on the wolf.  A green
          hue soft light shines from his hands and quickly covers
          the wound (a bite gnash) and it quickly heals 70%.  The
          wolf heals 7 points of damage back but still hsa a small
          wound but is much better.]

       [Melee and Movement]

         [Farseeker moves toward the other python near Chion..]

         [Trembyl also heads toward the other python...]

         [Balrog yells out to Balrog while his instincts kick in.
          He swings the spear to his left with his right hand
          and impacts on something.  A loud whack is heard.
          A half second later a thud is heard on the ground below.
          A female groan is heard just before the thud.]

         [Unali moves toward the Python with both daggers.  She
          passes Jordi's line of fire and knows he is there
          so goes behind the long snake for a easy rear attack.
          She stabs with both daggers as the tail wriggles
          in place.  One dagger misses but the other does hit
          and does 2 points of damage past the tough hide.]

         [The flying creature makes his quick target selection
          and finds chion a nice target.  It dives with the
          club in its hand and swings but misses as he flies
          by fast.  Chion feels the wind of the wings and
          club pass inches by him...]

         [Creature near the dogs tries to bite one of the dogs
          and impacts and does 5 points to the dog which yelps
          in pain.]

         [Z'leyra completes her move of the last 6 feet and
          gets behind the python near Unali.  She swings her
          warstaff bracing for the hit and easilly hits the
          snake doing 10(4)=6 points of damage against the
          python which dazes it slightly.]

         [The wolf looks up at Strie'bog in anguish...as if
          he failed his master..then bows its head and rests
          as the pain slowly leaves...]

         [Both war dogs attack the creature one bites doing
          2 points more to the creature while the other misses.]

         [Kasha helps the dogs and swings his mace at the creature
          and hits doing the final damage to knock the creature
          out and to the ground.]
         [Chion swings his staff at the python but misses..its
          that instant that he realizes he never actually trained
          in the use of War Staffs.....]

         [Python near Chion rears up and then tries to strike down
          at Chion but fails to hit by 3 inches...]

         [Xian comes up and kneels by Strie'bog and glances at
          the mysterious man and smiles.  A new clue as to who
          this person is...a healer?]

  Some minor reminders
     Chion - I see you have no war staff skill so using the staff
       in combat is as if untrained in that weapon :<

 At this point creature near dogs is down and likely out.  Python
 near chion seems hurt but not down.  Flying creature is still
 out there.  Status of the person/creature/balrog/caladan and
 Ben'dar is unknown.
