     Game Update #301 in sequence (file #497)
     Admin notes: Internet ISP, a small one and my only one I've had
     since 1996, was without power for 4-5 days.  I was able to get
     on up till their generator died last wed night or so.  Thus
     the Friday update is today's.  So we should be back on schedule.
     As to Hurricane Ivan its likely going to miss us (at least my
     city) at this point.  So shouldn't be a big issue.
     [Recap]     - None
     [New Stuff  - Current Situation]

        From Unali: [Re: Actions]
          Coming up from behind, with the priestess distracted, Unali
          will attempt an assassination attempt, twice actually with two
          daggers, on the priestess.   Hopefully she does enough damage
          to end the damage shield, and if she is lucky has some to
          spare for the priestess as well.
        GM: Ack.

        From Chion: [Re: Actions]
          Musta been one hellofa roll with his MDV against wizardry
          spells(1 1/2 that of normal). In any event, he'll try to resist
          the effects now that his friends are asking what he's doing (if
          he can). Hopefully he can manage it. Too bad she's not going to
          live to enjoy the experience...

          Also, if he does resist it, he won't attempt to use it in his
          favor to get near enough the priestess in order to kill her.
          We'll wait and see how it pans out. For now, though, if he can
          throw off the spell right away he'll just do that. Otherwise
          I'm hoping it's mind control and not fascination... for the
          party's sake anyway... (mind control he fights at half, if I
          recall correctly... maybe I have it backwards?)

          If he does manage to throw it off, he'll say to the priestess,
          "You shall never do that again!" If the guard is still
          standing, he'll attack it one more time before moving towards
        GM:  Ack.  She got a single digit roll for the spell.  So success.

        From Jordi: [Re: Actions]
          Jordi knows that his friends are coming, so he just has to keep
          the bodyguard and the priesstess occuppied for a little bit more.
          However, it seems that it's the bodyguard with the staff the
          most dangerous opponent, because it seems that the staff is
          capable of powerful magic.  So he decides to keep the bodyguard
          busy.  Jordi uses his shield EL defensively, and attacks with
          his sword, hoping to kill/incapacitate the guard as quickly as
          posible.  He's very concerned about the priesstess, but he can't
          avoid facing the bodyguard without suicidal risks.

          The only thing Jordi can do is to move himself around the guard
          in an anti-clockwise movement, to avoid being ambushed by the
          priesstess, and to place the bodyguard between the priesstess
          and him, just in case... Jordi begins to think that he must end
          quickly with the fight, to heal magically himself quickly, so
          Neva doesn't get worried by his wounds...
        GM: Ack. 


      Time: Estimated  7:20am-7:35am  - Morning Day 22

        Turn 2: Phase 2

        [Mana Allocation]

          [Bodyguard and Xian allocates Mana]
        [Missile Fire]

          [Thig now invisible drops the fire stand which tumbles to
           the ground.  He then turns in a wild arc and grabs his
           repeating crossbow.  He flies toward the enemy.  He
           flies the length of the room almost and hovers above
           Z'leyra.  His eyes better suited spots the Bodyguard
           at a 50 degree angle.  He aims at the bodyguard and
           fires his 3rd shot that is loaded in the crossbow.  The
           dart hits his right side just under the arm and does
           a 5 point shot.  This further wounds the bodyguard.]

        [Magic Effect]

          [Xian casts his dispell again at the Throne.  He reaches
           his hand down and still sees the glow of th egem.  He
           curses loudly.]

          [The bodyguard begins to speak his magic words but as soon
           as he is wounded his concentration is lost and the mana
           fades away..]
          GM: If thig had missed Jordi's brain would be mush now. :)
            Mind Burn with 8 to stats.  :)  I can say that sinc ethe
            bodyguard will likely fall this phase.  

          [The steam is now gone and visibility is normal]
          [The Fire in the one hex also ends.]

        [Melee & Movement]
           [Farseeker runs forward but he doesn't notice that Z'leyra has
            now turned invisible (since the anti-invisibility spell was
            stopped by Thig).  Suddenly after 11 feet he runs smack intot
            the back of Z'leyra.  This throws Z'leyra forward and she
            hits the area near the Priestess.  Farseeker stops short
            and is surprised.  A "Umpf!" is heard behind Z'leyra.]

           [Triest runs forward besides Farseeker and stops when he
            enters the steam.  He swings his scimitar at the Priestess.
            The blade hits a field of energy a inch from the priestess
            and stops there.  Triest is shocked as the static from the
            hit confuses him.]

           GM: The first melee weapon to hit the Priestess.

           [Unali rounds the pillar and runs up toward the Priestess.
            With both daggers she tries a back stab with a bit of
            a side stab.  But both daggers hit the static energy
            blue field.  As the metal hits a slight spark emits on
            contact but they do not penetrate the shield.]

           [The bodyguard swings staff at Jordi in anger from being
            shot with a dart by Thig.  But the staff slices the air
            just above Jordi and misses.]

           [Ben'dar comes along side Triest and tries to stab with
            his spear at the Priestess.  The spear also contacts
            the energy shield and stops suddenly.]

           [Caladan runs forward but he chooses the bodyguard as he
            sees the staff is the main threat for him.  He comes up
            alongside Unali and swings in a wide arc the warstaff
            to the bodyguard.  He smacks the guard right in the
            left back of the head crushing a bit of the skull and
            doing 12(4)=8 points.  This is exactly the last points
            needed to kill the guard instantly.  The bodyguard
            falls to the ground with the staff still in his hand.
            He falls to the sound toward the throne in the north.
            He hits the armrest of the throne (right armrest) and
            falls to the west side of the throne onto the ground.]

           [The Priestess hears the smack of skull crushing and a bit
            of blood splatters against the shield and slides off. She
            looks over her shoulder to see the bodyguard fall.  She
            grimaces and turns then without another thought she runs
            off.  She weaves between Z'leyra and Unali then past
            Wi and heads south past the pillar at full speed.  As
            she runs she speaks a few words but no one recognizes
            them not being climan?]

           [Wi sees this and turns and gives chase.  He passes her
            and then twists and stops swinging his sword but he
            fails to hit the Priestess and even the shield.]

           [Chion's face flushes dark red in utter rage.  He stares at
            Ris and grits his teeth.  he tries to resist against being
            held by Cholan, Kasha and Aren.  He frees his arm from Aren
            and swings at the air in front of him toward Ris.  But his
            other arm and back is being held securely by the other two.]

           [Kasha turns to Ris and speaks in Marentian hoping the Diplomat
            will understand while holding Chion.]
           Kasha: "Leave the room!"

           [Cholan holds Chion in a strong vice grip]

           [Z'leyra startled by being pushed into the Priestess and
            then hitting air and stopping turns.  She sees the
            Priestess run off and regaining her senses regrips her
            Axe and runs after her.  As she runs she notices her
            arms are invisible and discovers why the bump.  She
            catches up to the Priestess and does like Wi a wild
            swing on her.  The axe hits the shield and sparks fly
            but no penetration.]

           [Jordi now with the steam gone sees the Bodyguard fall and
            the Priestess retreat.  He leaps over the body and
            gives chase as well.  But he ends up about 4 feet behind
            the Priestess just out of reach for this phase.]

           [Suresh turns and gives chase as well.  he reaches and
            swings at the Priestess.  His sword also sparks off
            the shield.]

           [Ris understands Kasha and turns and runs afraid for his life.]

           [Amin stares at Chion in wonder why he is acting this way.]

           [Dax eyes forward looking NE slightly sees the Priestess run
            away.  As the diplomat begins to turn as well he notices
            something strange...the tapestry on the far NE corner seems
            to be smoldering or giving off a fog?...he stops turning
            to eye what is going on..]

           [Aren tries to regain the arm of Chion back and wonders
            if he should knock Chion out for his own good and theirs.]

           [Neva and Sava see the Priestess head that way.  Neva grabs
            her bow and prepares.  Sava looks solemly at the Priestess.]

    No one ever really said they studied or even looked at both
    tapestries which are full fledged artworks...of a couple scenes..:)

   The Priestess is the last enemy but her shield seems quite formidable.
   It seems to be as far as 3-5 inches away from her skin at times.
   Objects on it just spark on it and slide off.  Various levels of
   attack though are different in that each hit seems to do various
   levels of sparks and color shimmering on the energy shield.  As if
   one hit is stronger than the others (obvious) and stronger hits
   may weaken but still not get through the shield.  So it must take
   a big strong hit to get through.  This can be deduced from combat.
