     Game Update #94 in sequence (file #743)      
     Admin Notes: None. 

        From Raban: [Re: Actions]
          <No problem, Raban likes to have fun and flashy moves are
          more his style... But Raban snuck up on one!! LOL
        GM: Ack.  Guy was a bit dazed so a giant could've snuck up on him.
            Oh wait.  You are a giant.

        From Kell: [Re: Actions]
          [ Kell attacking on foot is just right.  As he already dismounted,
          he will not take the time to remount. ]
          If possible, Kell will try to form a line with the others near
          him. Caladan and Strie'Bog and Ben'dar.

          Once the outside Vong are dead, Ha'Kell will prepare to enter
          the house leading with shield first.  Unless Raban or Ben'dar
          want to lead, then he'll back them up.  :)   As inside is much
          tighter for fighting, he'll drop his spear and use Tulwar inside.
          If Kell can see any Vong in the second floor windows, he'll take
          aim and hurl his spear at them before entering the house.

          [Lost ending.  Sad, sad day.  One of the best shows on TV.
          Sequel? One can hope...  Housewives of wha? Huh? What are
          dwarves doing watching that?  :)  But Survivor just ended as
          well.  sigh. ]
        GM: Ack. Yep.  Sad ending more or less.  As to dwarves they like
            stupid shows.  They like to watch that WE women's entertainment
            channel for some odd reason.  They claim they are looking
            for a Dwarf Queen to kidnap but I don't buy it.  As to
            survivor you'll like Jimmy's alternative lost ending but don't
            spoil it here.  Some in europe are a season behind.

        From Arawn: [Re: Actions]
          Scott, saw your comment at the end of the post. Not sure why it
          took so long for my email to reach you as I sent it before 8pm
          but I'll have to start sending it out sooner. I had planned on
          eaving the baroness alone for Z'leyra to check on but I can roll
          with things:)

          Translocation spot- Arawn realized the carriage was being driven
          away, though he hoped that Kiet wouldn't pull it too far off.
          With that in mind Arawn would likely have picked a spot far
          enough away from the house to (hopefully) avoid being attacked,
          someplace further back between where the horses are and the
          wagon's apparent path. I'm thinking maybe 150 feet north of the
          house for now.

          Post- Arawn carefully looks over the woman for any signs of shock
          or injury that need immediate attention, trying to adapt his
          skills as an elven healer and incorporating what he has picked
          up from Z'leyra so far. He focused on the situation at hand,
          although the battle and things back at the house were in the
          back of his mind. As he tended to the woman he called out to his
          horse, asking it to meet him.
        GM: Ack. Sorry.  Some emails take longer than others depending
            on the local routers and issue.  I've seen some of Alex's
            emails sent in real time while we chat take 24 hours.  So
            it could be end of one pipeline on your or their end or
            my end or in between.  My suggestion is send at least 4
            hours before 9pm Thursday and 10pm Monday EST.

        From Fremea: [Re: Actions]
          Fremea will first fire at any other target that seems likely she
          won't hit one of her party doing so. If there are none, then she
          will finish off the dog/beast.
        GM: Ack. 

     [New Stuff]

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

         [Time: 2:38:30pm]

           Fremea aims at the nearby Vong still standing but all are near
         allies.  She then points downward toward the dog-beast thing
         and fires.  The arrow hits the creature in the back and kills
         it quickly as it no longer seems to be breathing.

           Z'leyra hovering in the air above the stairs fires again
         her sling at the Vong nearby.  The bullet hits the warrior in
         in the middle right chest and does a minor wound.

           Raban glances over to see Ben'dar fighting one Vong and
         figures he can handle that one.  He flies toward the
         trio fighting the other two Vong.  Landing with unusual
         grace behind the two Vong he reaches out with his large hands.
         Reaching out toward both he hopes to do a head bash against
         each other.  but his right hand ends up on the Vong's right
         arm and pushes left doing a minor wound to him.  But the
         left hand makes contact with Vong #7's head and pushes
         right.  The forces of the blow, collision and his previous
         other damage is devastating.  He takes instantly over 30
         points of damage.  The force of the bash sideways is so
         strong it breaks his neck and he is dead before he hits the
         ground.  The other Vong is dazed and confused but still standing.

           Upstairs on the second floor hallway Unali pushes Farseeker
         forward and uses her thin body to move past him.  She then
         charges the foot and stabs forward with her daggers at Vong #3
         but fails to hit with both in her quick move.

           Farseeker with some more room swings left and then back toward
         Vong #2  The greatsword goes under his right arm and slices the
         side of his chest doing a minor wound.

           In the cramped bedroom Chion struggles with the Vong warrior.
         Both are fighting with dagger style blades.  Chion thrusts
         forward and stabs the warrior in the middle right chest doing
         a minor wound.

           Outside Ben'dar thrusts with his spear at Vong #9 and hits
         doing a minor wound in the warrior's neck but not enough to
         cripple him.

           Arawn continues to do a visual examination of the noble as he
         opens his kit onto the grass.  he glances around   He is
         about 150 north of the caretaker house and about 100 feet
         south of the carnival grounds office building.  He is actually
         a bit further north than the wagon is about 50 feet.  He
         calls out to his horse to join him.

           Kell thrusts with his spear and fails to hit the last Vong
         fighting the small group.

           Vong #1 thrusts his coufee dagger at Chion but fails to make
         contact in the chaotic brawl.

           Vong #2 thrusts at Farseeker with his amphistaff but misses.

           Vong #3 swings at Unali and hits her in the left arm
         doing 5 points as the spear side scraps her arm.

           Vong #5 swings at Z'leyra's last known fired position and
         of course hits nothing.

           Vong #8 is either brave or stupid as he continues to fight
         with 4 to 1 odds.  he swings at Caladan and misses in his
         desperation to survive.

           Vong #9 thrusts at Ben'dar and fails to also make contact.

           Caladan swings at Vong #8 but fails to make contact as the
         warrior ducks just below his swing.

           Kiet glances around the field and sees Arawn some distance
         away to the north.  He is then stunned to see what looks to be
         a nude woman lying near him.  He then recalls Will's description
         of what must be the baronness.  He taps on the wagon and tells
         Zhou about it.

           Will watches in silence as the two leave the room.  Now
         he is alone with the snakes moving back and forth.  He
         crosses his arms eager to do something.  He could fire his
         bow but hit the other two.

           Strie'bog swings his axe at Vong #8 and hits the warrior
         in the side of the chest but fails to penetrate his tough
         crab armor. 

           Whitney continues to run south toward the house area.

           Zhou gets out of the wagon and looks around.  he then
         ensures his dagger is on his belt and turns to Kiet.  "I'm
         going to help.  Stay if you wish."  He then jogs toward Arawn
         and the female.


         [Time: 2:38:33pm]

           Z'leyra fires her sling again but this time, the bullet
         whizzes past the Vong and down the hallway.

           Fremea flies toward Ben'dar and the house.  She flies and
         hovers behind the Vong fighting Ben'dar and with her back to
         the house.  She knows she can fire at the Vong's back next
         few seconds if Ben'dar doesn't finish him off.

           Raban grabs out with his arms and grabs a hold of the Vong
         warrior and holds in him place so the others can have a easy

           Unali stabs with both daggers at Vong #3 who is not wounded yet.
         Both daggers hit in the upper left and middle left chest
         areas doing a 16 and 5 point wounds each hurting the warrior.

           Farseeker thrusts with both hands and hits the Vong warrior
         #2 in the left shoulder doing a 10 point blow hurting but
         not stopping the mighty warrior.

           Chion swipes with his sai dagger and hits Vong #1 in the
         upper right chest doing a minor wound.

           Ben'dar thrusts his spear at Vong #9 and hits in the middle
         left chest doing 10 points but he warrior still stands from
         the bloody wound.

           Arawn continues to examine the noble woman and is mystified
         by the coral-rock like things implanted in her body.  He isn't
         sure if they can be cut out or destroyed or what that will
         do to her body.  This is clearly beyond his skill set.  But
         her condition is weak and he tries to pinpoint why she is off.
         Could it be the coral?  The torture? Shock or something else?
         It will take a few minutes to likely pinpoint the facts.

           Kell thrusts his spear at Vong #7 and hits in the right
         middle chest but the force of the strike is only a minor wound
         even with Raban holding the target still.

           Vong #1 swings at Chion but fails to make physical contact.

           Vong #2 and #3 both thrust at Farseeker and Unali but both
         fail to hit their targets.

           Vong #5 finally gives up.  He begins to slowly back up down
         the hallway leaving Z'leyra slightly behind.  He looks around
         at the walls carefully to see where this evil unseen person is.
         He keeps his amphistaff at mid-level outwards.

           Vong #8 thrusts at Kell but he brings up his shield just in
         time to block a massive strike that might've done some serious
         damage to the trader.

           Vong #9 thrusts at Ben'dar but his amphistaff suddenly leaves
         his right hand and falls slightly out of his grasp.  But as it
         does the left hand grabs onto the rod and yanks.  The amphistaff
         seems to recoil as quickly as it fumbled and is back into place
         in his right hand 2 seconds later.

           Caladan swings his war staff and hits Vong #8 in the head doing
         15 points of damage crushing some of his skull.  With the previous
         damage the warrior slumps in Raban's arms and Raban releases him.

           Will glances out the second floor window where the Shaper was
         looking out.  He sees Ben'dar and Fremea nearby fighting what
         looks to be one warrior.

           Strie'bog swings his axe at the slumped warrior and does the
         final damage to kill the unconscious warrior.

           Whitney continues to run toward the group but sees that only
         one warrior is left outside fighting Ben'dar.

           Zhou continues to run toward Arawn.

         Actions? Comments?

         Next Update...Friday...

         GM: Wow.  Who would have thought it.  A secret project by Walt
             Disney for a new theme park.  The island of Lost.

         GM: Monday is Memorial day in the USA.  If anyone needs me to
             delay or hold the Monday update let me know.  I'm off so
             see no problem with working on it.  But some folks might be
             out of town.  Just let me know.

         GM: Arawn - Will take some time to examine her and get some
               ideas or to figure out what the Vong has done to her.

             Kiet - stay with wagon or go south to the house or go near
                Arawn or take a nap?

             Will - Next phase (next second in fact) you will become
                solid again and can move.  But you'd have to squeeze
                into the hallway to help out.

         GM: Vong Status -

             Female Vong  On ground dead or knocked out.

             10 Vong - Dead    - 5
                       Alive   - 5 (1 outside, 4 inside)
                       Wounded - 5

             1 Vong Outside vs 7

         GM: Leaves 1 Vong outside fighting Ben'dar and the rest.  It
             should not be hard to kill him in a phase or two.  I
             will assume after that folks enter inside.

             One in the 2nd floor bedroom fighting Chion
             Two in 2nd floor hallway fighting Unali/Farseeker
             One on first floor avoiding Z'leyra. 

         GM: Spells still active -

             Active spells - No other spells active. 
               Raban   - Bless
               Z'leyra - OS, Insubstantial, Levitate, Invisibility
               Will    - Insubstantial
               Fremea  - Cold Arrow
