Game Update #93 in sequence (file #738)
Admin Notes: None.
From Fremea: [Re: Actions]
Fremea will finish off the one she wounded and then go after
the beast. She will also fly to other vantage points to help
down the others quickly.
From Kiet: [Re: Actions]
Kiet isn't moving away unless there is some sign of pursuit.
Turned around to make a fast escape, yes.
Keep a rope or two handy. Also, keep on guard...looking all
around, not just at house.
From Raban: [Re: Actions]
<Raban is better with more room to move, so any outside have
priority. Then move inside and hope there is enough room to do
things. May end up just grabbing Vong for others to kill.
[Julis 26th, 1634TH]
[Location: Middle Katai Plains, Shantou Province]
[ 20 Miles south of Shantou City ]
[ Old Shantou Carnival Grounds ]
Arawn continues to gather magical energy for his translocation
spell. As he does he sees the female Vong fall to the ground
and slide down the wall. He notices the snake headdress which
he has personally experienced is still moving. That alone could
be some threat to the baroness even though the other Vong and
those outside in the hall are not a real threat at this time.
Fremea quickly reloads and aims at the wounded Vong that has
no one near him. The Arrow flies the 21 feet to the Vong had
hits the warrior in the right armor doing a light wound but the
cold side effect does not damage him further. It does affect
his clothing but mostly making it ice cold and wet but nothing that
will hinder him. Again the Vong resists the spell.
Z'leyra reloads her Sling and fires it toward the Vong near
the stairs on the first floor. At this close range its easy
to hit and she does hitting him in the upper left chest. But
the damage is very light just deep enough past his armor. Likely
the damage there will be so weak it will regenerate over the Vong's
skin and reform more Crab armor pieces.
Arawn finishes his chant and holds onto the wooden A-Frame and
another hand onto the shoulder of the female. he then casts and
finishes his translocation spell. He and the female disappear and
reappear outside on the grass away from the house.
Chion looks to Will who has smiled and nods in thanks for helping
him. Chion then also casts a spell and waves with one hand
his spell gestures. With his other hand he waves at Will then
winks out as he teleports out of the room.
Raban flies over the beast-dog thing. It is a ugly dog but it
looks like its bark is worse then its bite. He flies toward
Vong #6 which is attacking Strie'bog about 10 feet away. Reaching
out he grabs the Vong by the head and left arm. Raban then flies
up at an angle and the Vong attempts to struggle to get free before
he realizes he is a dozen feet off the ground. Raban realizes the
Vong will soon have a easy strike with that staff and decides to
test the theory of gravity to see if it affects the Vong. He
drops him at 30 feet off the ground. The Vong warrior lands with
a splat on his chest and likely squishes his crab armor. The Vong
seems to grunt and cough but it is unclear of the damage. Raban
shakes his head so gravity does work on them.
The Voxyen dog beast seems enraged at something if it can be.
It howls at Raban and turns whipping its tail back and forth.
The six legs propel the beast forward right for Ben'dar. But
the beast passes by and runs toward Fremea's position. With
it getting a good running speed on its six legs it leaps up toward
Fremea and bites out with its long snout like head. But the bite
misses Fremea. But as he begins to dive toward the ground its
tail whips at Fremea and impacts against her lower right chest
but her armor protects from the triangle spear like shaped tail.
Fremea is amazed it can leap up 20 feet like that. But she has
seen the Vong drop from the barn roof with ease. Maybe in whatever
place they come from gravity is different?
Unali watches the Shaper fall. She sees the snakes still
move and it seems they can't move. But can they detach and
slither about? She recalls the time Arawn donned the head
dress at Lake Oca. The snakes bit him but didn't seem to
separate and attack anyone. So they must live on the helmet
thing itself. She turns and notices the bed where Arawn and
the female noble is empty. She assumes teleported away. Good.
She moves toward the door and helps Farseeker not noticing that
Chion has also teleported away. Stabbing with both daggers the
normal dagger fails to hit. But the magical dagger hits the
Vong in the left chest just below hear a normal human heart
must be doing a minor wound.
Farseeker sees Unali joining him but with this tiny cramped
space he can't get a full forced swing. He backs up a foot
and thrusts with both hands in a stab. The greatsword hits
the Vong in the center chest doing a minor wound.
Chion heard Will's report and knows the other prisoner is in
danger. Not waiting for orders he teleports to the north west
bedroom without precise information and prep work. He
teleports 3 feet off the ground with his legs drawn up into
a ball and he uses his acrobatic skills to land onto the floor
missing the nightstand by a foot. Seeing the Vong in the other
side of the bed he lunges. It seems the Vong was issued a
order from the hallway sentries and went to kill this prisoner.
The Vong already has his amphistaff out and pointed at the
prisoner. As Chion runs the two feet to the bed he leaps onto
the bed tossing the helpless older man back and forth on the
bed. With his huge body frame the bed sags a bit and
moans. But the large sailor-wizard leaps toward the Vong with
his sai and the wapon impacts him in his left shoulder doing
a minor wound. Then Chion lands up against the Vong and slams
him into the west wall sending both landing hard enough to cause
the stone wall to send dust everywhere.
Ben'dar notices the beast run past him and not sure where
it went. With spear in hand he stabs forward wishing he had
his magical pike with him. The spear misses the Vong by a
few inches and misses.
Arawn lands onto the ground and the noble crashes onto her side.
She still seems to be knocked out and Arawn begins to inspect
the body. Arawn has seen nude humans before in bath houses
but this is a rather unique situation to be so close to examine
how human and elves are different. After all they say the
pointy ears of Elves are in direct proportion to some other
body parts or so they say. Arawn pulls off his back pack to obtain
his healing kit.
Kell thrusts his spear at Vong #8 and hits in the upper right
chest doing a moderate sized wound.
Vong #1 in the bedroom which Chion just teleported into is
thrown against the wall. He swings wildly at Chion but misses
by two full feet.
Vong #2 and #3 are upset they can't get into the bedroom to
help the Female Vong but the stupid other warrior is blocking
their path. They growl and shove but the warrior is blocked
up against the door.
Vong #4 thrusts his amphistaff at Unali and misses by a
half inch as it passes just to the left of her side.
Vong #5 swings his amphistaff at the massless and invisible
Z'leyra but it goes through the air. The Warrior grunts in
confusion as to how this could be happening. Z'leyra quickly
figures out these warriors aren't too bright.
Vong #6 reaches for his amphistaff a few feet away and stumbles
to his feet after being dropped by Raban. Slightly dazed he
looks around and tries to figure out if his armor is still active.
He glances down and touches his chest with his free hand.
Vong #7 and #8 both thrust their amphistaves at Kell and
Caladan but both miss their targets as both men dodge just out
of the rod's arc.
Vong #9 swings at Ben'dar but fails to strike. Vong #10
wounded charges forward and swings wildly at Ben'dar as well
but fails to make contact.
Caladan swings his war staff at Vong #8 but fails to make physical
contact with the quick and agile warrior.
Will watches the fight ahead of him and crosses his arms feeling
helpless. Then a odd thought comes to him. What happens if one
has gas while insubstantial? He shakes his head. Was that his
thought or some thought from Z'leyra or Whitney left over?
Strie'bog swings his axe on Vong #7 but fails to make contact
as the battle line all seems to show bad coordination on both
Z'leyra finds herself with no mode of movement. She recasts
another levitation spell.
Fremea is upset that this beast can almost get to her and bite
her with who knows what inside its mouth. She turns and aims her
bow at the beast and fires. The arrow hits in the beast's left
shoulder if it is a shoulder just to the left of its long snout like
head. The wound is deep doing 5 points and then the ice blue effect
of the Cold Arrow spell goes off. A wave of freezing cold and
ice crystals forms on and around the wound. A wave of cold
magical energy surges through the beast's long body making it
howl and shiver at the same time. Some of its fur begins to
crystallize and form into ice immediately while flesh turns pale
from the cold. It takes 2 seconds for the beast to stop
shivering and howling then it falls flat on its six legs
which are splayed under its body. Fremea raises an eyebrow
in delight at the spell effect. But she notices the beast's
back is slightly still moving meaning he is likely out but not
Raban flies down toward Vong #6 and comes up behind him.
Landing as gracefully as a giant who can for some reason
fly he grabs the Vong from the back. Using his large
hands he grasps the Vong's neck with one right arm and with
the other left arm does a brace against his head. With one
quick snap he breaks the neck of the Vong who goes limp
immediately and falls to the ground.
Unali stabs with both daggers at Vong #4. The magical dagger
hits in the upper right chest doing 10 points and the normal
dagger does 2 points a few inches below that wound in the lungs.
This knocks the Vong out and he slumps slightly.
Farseeker uses this opportunity to push forward with his shoulder
now that the Vong is not resisting. He tries to push the knocked
out Vong forward into the hall but the two behind resist. Then
one of them on the right loses his balance in the push of war
and is forced back. This causes the knocked out Vong to fall
backwards into the hallway floor.
Chion continues to fight the big warrior in the bedroom in
the cramped space. Both are now semi-wrestling semi fighting
in a huddle stance over each other between the west wall and
the bed itself. Chion tries to stab with his sai but fails to
make physical contact.
Ben'dar sees the wounded Vong warrior approach and turns
to him. Something quieted that beast so he is happy about
that and thrusts with his spear. He hits the warrior in the
left arm doing the final damage to kill the warrior leaving
only one left to battle near him.
Arawn pulls out his healing kit and examines the ropes that
bind the noble. He isn't sure if its some Vong animal that might
attack him. but it has the distinct smell of rope that is dry
and brittle. It doesn't appear to be living or of Vong design.
He gently cuts the rope to relieve the stress on the noble woman's
back and legs. He then takes some discreet examination of her
wounds and strange coral objects implanted in her body.
Kell stabs with his spear at Vong #7 and hits in the lower
left abdomen doing a minor wound.
Vong #1 knows it is too cramped to fight with his amphistaff
so releases it and pulls his coufee dagger. He stabs forward
in an attempt to hit Chion and does in the right upper arm near
his shoulder but it doesn't penetrate his armor.
Vong #2 in the hallway thrusts with his amphistaff and hits
Farseeker right in his left center chest impaling into a rib
doing 5 points past his chainmail a minor wound but it hurts.
Vong #3 regains his balance and thrusts at Unali but her
magical dagger seems to warn her just in the nick of time and
she misses the rod by a half inch.
Vong #5 continues to swipe at Z'leyra but it goes through
her body with no harm hitting only air.
Vong #7 thrusts his amphistaff at Strie'bog and hits in the
right shoulder doing a massive 7 point hit hurting the bard.
Vong #8 thrusts at Caladan and impales a moderate wound in
the wizard's lower left abdomen doing 8 points of damage.
Vong #9 thrusts at Ben'dar and barely misses. The sharp
end of the amphistaff cuts a bit of his clothing its that close
but doesn't draw blood.
Both Strie'bog and Caladan react by swinging axe and war
staff at their enemy who just wounded them. But they both
fail to strike the warriors.
Whitney looks out the window of the weagon. When he sees
Strie'bog and Caladan wounded he quickly opens the door
and grabs his gear. Without looking back he runs toward
the group with his bow and axe in hand. Slinging his bow
over his shoulder he glares back at the wagon.
GM: Dice good and bad this go around in all aspects. This
weekend will be a sad one for TV. Saturday marks the series
finale for Seeker unless a miracle occurs. Sunday marks
the end of the great Lost series and Monday the end of the
24 series. The dwarves also mention something about a finale
for something called Real Housewives of Orange County? But
they say its a good show or something but they are insane
drunks so we humor them. After this week Thursdays will be
easier for me to work on updates for the summer as flashforward
and fringe will be over. So will have a couple more hours
to work on it rather than the day before.
GM: Arawn - Got your email at something like 11pm when I last
checked at 8pm as wanted to see the some TV. By
then was too late to make those changes. If I had
gotten it few hours earlier. I had already wrote
the part up where you said you wanted to save and
teleport the baroness out. I thought that was the
original plan? Sorry. Didn't know where to put you
on the map as didn't say where to teleport to.
Ben'dar - I know feel strange off the horse. But your charge
wasn't sure if you wanted to remain on the horse or
fight on the ground to enter the house. The Vong
clearly wanted folks off their horses so didn't exit
till that happened.
Fremea - The beast is down but still slightly seems alive.
Kell - Didn't get answer on those spells so I figured the
ground action was fine. You can always retreat and
go to the horse if needed.
Raban - Sorry had some fun. :)
Unali - Farseeker should be able to force his way through
to the hall and then move to let you through the door
to fight next phase. If all goes well.
Will - Looks like you should go solid in 3 phases. Around
2:38:36 So likely 2 updates unless we can figure
out the situation in email and come up with a change
to the rule.
GM: Vong Status -
Female Vong On ground dead or knocked out.
10 Vong - 2 wounded outside, 1 unharmed
2 in 2nd floor unharmed
1 second floor bedroom wounded
3 Vong Outside vs 7
GM: Spells still active -
Active spells - No other spells active.
Raban - Bless
Z'leyra - OS, Insubstantial, Levitate, Invisibility
Will - Insubstantial
Fremea - Cold Arrow
