     Game Update #66 in sequence (file #275)
     Admin notes: None. 

        From Ben'dar: [Re: Actions]                                     
          Ben'Dar, wondering why his warhorse isn't fighting, gives Tef'wo
          a firm wake-up kick...

          No change in plan - he'll continue fighting the two humanoids
          near him.
        GM: Ack.  As to Tef'wo I explained that in last update in
            this section and in personal email.  

     [New Stuff]

         [Decalis 16th, 107th day since left Marentia, 42nd day of
          Adventure #3 of the 1633rd year [TH].]

          [Location: Pavassa Forest - Eastern Edge/On Plains]
          [Time    -  3:56pm]
          [Weather -  Overcast, 62 Degrees]

          [Turn 1: Phase 4]

             [Mana Allocation - ]

               [Bohusara allocates mana for a big spell.]

             [Missile Fire    - ]

               [Thig takes aim at several targets.  But with party members
                nearby its hard to fire and risk collateral damage.  He
                aims at #13.  Strie'bog is there below but Thig is
                just high enough there shouldn't be high risk to Strie'bog.
                He aims his repeating crossbow and fires.  The magical
                dart flies at medium range the 34 feet but fails to hit
                and impacts in the sand to be recovered later.]

               [Warrior #2 throws the 3 objects toward Ben'dar.  Two
                miss him by a half inch as he dodges it barely. But
                a 3rd hits him in the upper right arm but bounces off
                the thick dragon armor onto the ground.]

               [Warrior #12 picks the single object from his pouch
                and throws it the 15 feet at Strie'bog.  The buzzing
                object hits Strie'bog dead center in the right
                shoulder with a "thud" and penetrates the leather armor
                quickly piercing tissue and digging in. Blood rolls
                out as six points of damage is done.]

               [Having been just stabbed in the back Warrior #17 with
                a speed not seen by most humans grabs inside his
                pouch and pulls 2 objects.  He twirls around and
                at point blank range throws them straight ahead in
                the general direction he must assume someone to be.
                One buzzes by Arawn's invisible head by a half inch
                but the other hits Arawn in the left arm and quickly
                penetrates his magical scale mail doing a tissue ripping
                "thud" and doing 4 points of damage.  As the blood sprays
                out it becomes visible.]

             [Magic Effect    - ]

               [Bohusara comes quickly to the realization that if her
                magic can't affect these creatures then maybe her
                magic can affect them indirectly.   Before she calls
                for the Protectors and other animals to help she
                decides on a spell.  She knows she rather not risk
                other animals to save her.  Too many have died already.
                She raises her hands and begins speaking in a supernatural
                tongue.  She twirls her hands as if kneading dough.
                then in the last second she completes the quick spell
                and points to the water.  At J47 the water begins
                to swirl and bubble.  The dark liquid foams and froths.
                It seems to rumble.  This draws the attention of
                Strie'bog, Z'leyra and Thig who are looking in that
                general direction.  It also draws the attention of
                warriors #12, 13, 16 and 20 in that area.  All
                glance to the water and notice from the water something
                begins to rise.  In fact its water that seems to be
                rising.  It continues to rise.  Soon a thick square block
                of brown water is seen.  Within half a second from the
                sides two extensions come out that look to be arms
                but in this case water arms.  A "head" of brown water
                is formed slightly smaller than the torso.  From the bottom
                two huge blockish legs of brown water form.  The water
                creature seems to stand 8 feet tall and has green plants
                for "eyes".   The water around its body swirls and shifts
                from clear to brown water.  It begins to moves quickly
                out of the water and then stands on the shore.]

             [Melee & Movement-]

               [Ben'dar thrusts his Pike at Warrior #3 but fails to hit.]

               [Unali swipes her magical dagger at Warrior #8 but fails
                to hit anything.]

               [Corona stares at the 8 foot towering water "thing."
                Too startled he circles the field and wonders what is
                about to occur.]

               [Thig moves to the south-east and gains a foot higher
                off the ground for better firing targets.]

               [Boyzdar turns from being attacked by #11 and charges
                the few feet toward #12.  He turns and lunges but
                his attack fails as the humanoid dodges it.]

               [Farseeker continues to try to free himself from the
                'staff' that seems to turned snake of the dead warrior's
                #10 staff.  He is able to get most of it off as it tries
                to bite him using his sword as leverage.]

               [Warrior #12 transforms his staff into a fluid whip and
                strikes at the wolf but it misses him by a foot.]

               [Bohusara speaks in another tongue and yells some command
                seemingly directed at the water creature.]

               [Chion turns from the dead body of #5 and charges toward
                #11 closer by.  He swipes his sai at the warrior and
                stabs him directly in the center of the chest doing
                12 points of damage but the humanoid continues to stand.]

               [Trembyl moves south-east.]

               [Warrior #19 charges toward Unali and strikes upward
                with his staff in spear mode.  Her magical dagger
                gives her a split second warning and she shifts
                ever so slightly.  The spear is shifted from a vital
                spot in the chest to just under her right breast
                doing 5 points of damage past her chainmail.]

               [Warrior #16 moves 10 feet north trying to judge if he
                can get at Thig but Thig is too high.  He is startled
                by the strange water creature and keeps his position.]

               [From the western edge of the forest Warrior #18 runs
                from the forest into the clearing.]

               [Warrior #17 now gazes fully ahead where Arawn suddenly
                appears.  Since Arawn hit him invisible that ability
                is lost when the strike was made.  The Warrior growls
                suddenly seeing the Elf and strikes.  He snaps the
                staff into snake mode and it spits and lunges at
                Arawn but fails to strike.]

               [Z'leyra chases after #13.  She thrusts the sword at
                the man but fails to hit.]

               [Warrior #14 heads west and then rounds the back of
                the horse and wagon.]

               [Warrior #9 recovered from his kick by Farseeker charges
                Farseeker.  He turns his staff into a wriggling snake
                and it strikes at Farseeker.  It strikes in his right
                arm and bites down doing 2 points of damage.]

               [Arawn swings his magical sword at Warrior #17 and hits
                him in the right arm slicing tissue and leather.  The
                warrior takes 22 points of damage to the arm and falls
                to the ground dead.]

               [Strie'bog confused by the water creature sees his
                chance.  Warrior #13 is distracted by it as well
                and he moves toward the warrior.  Strie'bog uses
                his axe and swings at it.  The blade hits his
                left leg and does 6 points of damage.]

               [Warrior #8 uses his staff as Whip and fails to hit

               [Warrior #3 spears Ben'dar in the left shoulder and hits
                but the spear doesn't penetrate the thick dragon hide.]

               [Warrior #13 turns to Strie'bog and uses his staff as
                a whip toward Strie'bog.  But Strie'bog dodges just in time.]

               [Warrior #20 stares at the water creature and holds his
                staff up in a battle stance unsure what to do.]

               [Warrior #11 turns and stabs at Xian with his spear but
                fails to hit.]

               [Xian swings back at #11 with his staff but almost fumbles
                it and fails to strike.]

               [Lastly the Water creature walks forward making a muddy
                path as it walks on the dirt.  A slight rumble is heard
                from its weight of sheer water.  It raises both "arms"
                and walks slowly toward Warrior 320.  It lumbers toward
                the humanoid and raises its left "arm" and slams it
                against the humanoid.  It misses in its slow motion
                but the other "arm" punches the humanoid in the chest
                doing some physical damage as water splashes all around
                and all over the warrior.  Its like cement hitting a person.]

     Note: The forest is thick here and you can only see about 5-10 feet
        beyond the tree line due to the amount of trees, shrubs and
        thick foliage.  Inside the forest visibility is 8-10 feet.  The
        sun is about 30 degrees up in the western sky.  Making the western
        edge of forest darker than eastern edge.  Bottom of map left
        blank of forest areas to show hex scale.
