     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.
        GM: Ack. 

        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.
        GM: Ack. 

        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.
        GM: Ack. 

     [New Stuff]

         [Julis 26th, 1634TH]
         [Location: Middle Katai Plains, Shantou Province]
         [          20 Miles south of Shantou City       ]
         [          Old Shantou Carnival Grounds         ]

         [Time: 2:38:24pm]

           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

         [Time: 2:38:27pm]

           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.

         Next Update...Monday...

         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 dead 

             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
