     Game Update #318a  in sequence (file #520)
     Admin notes: None

     From Z'leyra: [Re: Actions]        
        Z'leyra will shoot arrows while levitating up and around the
        giant (think barber pole).  Hopefully it won't result in being
        caught in an area of affect spell like fireball. It will take
        a few rounds to get above it, but she should be able to get
        behind it fairly quickly.
     GM: Ack.

     From Ben'dar: [Re: Actions]
        OOC:  Thanks for the luck spell earlier Jordi!

        Actions:  Ben'Dar swivels around the loaded ballista to fire
        point blank at the giant.  He uses whatever magic luck is still
        on him to hit as much as possible with the ballista shot.

        If the giant somehow survives the ballista this phase, Ben'Dar
        will grab his pike and charge the giant the next phase.
     GM: Ack.  Point blank to a giant is like trying to hit a mountain
       so shouldn't be that hard :)

     From Jordi: [Re: Actions]
       Jordi throws his spear to the Giant, then draws his sword, and
       attacks it as soon as it is at melee range of the ship.
       PS: I have been some days out of reach.
     GM: Ack.  Does that PS mean your going to be gone for a few days
       due to holiday or such?  That's fine.  

     Turn 1: Phase 4

     [Mana Allocation]

       [Caladan Allocates Mana]

     [Missile Fire]

       [Thig fires again his repeating cross.  It hits but
        bounces off the hard skin and doesn't penetrate]

       [Neva raises her bow up this time at point blank and aims
        at the Giant's left eye which by now is huge up close.
        She fires and hits doing a massive 12 points of damage.
        The eye bursts as the liquid in the ey explodes outward
        and flies toward the ship and all over various people.
        The giant screams in pain...]

       [Trembyl aims his loaded Arbalest at the Giant and fires
        and hits doing 8 points as the bolt impales the right

       [Ben'dar and the others turn the weapon around while the
        other 2 helpers move out of the way.  Ben'dar doesn't
        even have to aim since the beast is so close.  HE
        just aims at the chest and releases the tight pulley
        latch and the springs release their energy.  All 12
        easilly hit 4 Hits bounce off, 5 hit for a total of
        7 points and 3 deadly hits do 37 points past the body
        armor for a total of 44 points!]

       [Seeing as the beast only had 4 points left out of 120
        total this puts him at a massive negative -40 being
        32 over his DTV this clearly kills him before he can
        react.  Unfournately the giant is too slow agility wise
        to move last so did not get even one attack in. :<]

       [The giant's chest is riddled with arrows and burnt flesh
        and the liquid from his eye drips down his chin..he
        begins to sway as his dead body takes over his muscles..

        Damon quickly yells for everyone to move to starboard
        side away from that edge...He begins to sway and his
        magic ends and he starts to slowly sink into the water.
        Those who have moved this phase or done actions find
        themselves starting at a 20 foot hulk over them swaying
        their way.  Then suddenly it comes toward them.  Everyone
        hits the deck or covers their head.  But at the last
        second the giant falls forward and to the left.  Then
        a loud BAM is heard as the giant hits the left forward
        side of the ship with his right shoulder, armo and head.
        Wood cracks, crates in that area explode or fall to the
        water.  The ship litterally lists to the port side under
        the heavy weight of the giant.  Then his weight causes
        the ship to list even more to its side.  Damon orders
        everyone to use their weight to the other side that can
        and he orders the rear anchor dropped immediately to
        balance the weight.  Just as its done the waves crash
        onto the ship and causes the giant to roll off.  The
        reaction to the ship is to lurch up as if hitting a large
        wave which throws many to their knees or fall completely.
        The wood goans and then the ship settles down.  Many
        run to the side to see the giant submerge under the
        waves.  Thig, Z'leyra, Kaylle, the Eagle all see this
        from their hovering.  Triest who was on the rigging itself
        dropped his crossbow but was just able to grab ropes before
        falling to the deck.

        Damon quickly assess the ship and orders the below deck
        to be checked for leaks but knows the hold is near that
        area and theres alot of loot to be moved before leaks can
        be checked.

        Jordi checks those around or wounds but finds mostly wounded
        or bruised no serious wounds.

        Farseeker quickly does a head count determines theres 2
        people missing.

        Before he can tell the othes this Thig yells out "two

        Many rush to the side and then discover in the water
        Unali and Diplomat Trom Zenakhis.  There is blood on the
        head of Trom but Unali looks ok.

        Caladan throws his staff and weapons to the deck then
        climbs over the railing and dives into the water.

        Damon inspects the ships damage.

        Unali is in good shape and swims toward Trom to help
        Caladan hold him up.  Trom seems unconscious.  Caladan
        waves toward Z'leyra and she lowers.  A foot from the
        churning waves Z'leyra grabs trom and then levitates
        over to the deck and helps him down.  Ropes are lowered
        to the other two in the water and they are able to climb.

        Z'leyra finds the spell keeps her from touching the deck
        for about 30 seconds.  Jordi inspects Trom and finds a
        head wound either from the giant impacting on him or
        something else.  Jordi quickly stops the bleeding and
        inspects the body for other wounds.

        Being a fomorian Trom could've swam easilly but he
        was knocked out and almost under the water.

        Damon reports "No big damage topside.  The wood will
          hold but we did crack about 9 critical timbers.  I
          hope we don't encounter any more storms or it could be
          more critical."
        Aren: "We lost six crates.  Four had fruit, one with
          water and one with today's meat.  We do have more in
          hte hold but we may have to ration some instead of
          the large portions we've been using."

        [Caladan has to let a fire dart up to the sky to release
         his built up magic.]


        [45 minutes later after the crates are moved in the hold
         the wood is inspected.  Four more timbers are found
         severely cracked but holding.  Three cracks were severe
         enough that needed patching up immediately as they were
         leaking.  Damon reports it should hold but we may have
         to do maintenance on it till we reach port.]


        [The next afternoon that storm previously reported in
         voyage timeline update hits.  Though normally would've
         been a light damag to the ship this with the other damage
         causes a timber  below deck to explode outward during
         the storm.  Damon orders it to be patched as best it
         can.  When the ship exits the storm water is in the
         hold.  Luckilly its not dispersed enough to both
         the sleeping Cholan.  But some gear is wet but not damaged
         pernmanetly.  A tarp is put up with patchwork to cover
         the hole as best as it can be.  Two people till the end
         of the cruise is stationed there to bucket out water as
         it collects.  This continues for almost 48 hours.  By
         day 33 that night the ship meets the 2 marentian merchant
         ships.  Supplies are exchanged and greetings.  The
         merchant happened to have some timbers and they are
         hammered into place belowdeck.  The three ships then
         seperate and the voyage continues.

         Two more days then the diplomat spots the large serpent
         in Lake Sivas.

         Consult the previous update # 315 file #517 for the full
         previously posted timeline on the event.]

        This is not the full update.  There is more to follow
        in next post..stay tuned for part 2
