     Game Update #303 in sequence (file #499)
     Admin notes: Hurricane J and K is out there.  But they say K
     won't be a problem.  Wonder what letter is next :)
     [Recap]     - None
     [New Stuff  - Current Situation]

        From Chion: [Re: Actions]                               
          Chion will slumber peacefully and dream of dead Climan
        GM: Ack.  Sorry to do it.  But if you had killed him you'd
          probably felt bad...I'd hope :)...and diplomatic incident...
          war...global war..destruction of the planet..ok..so maybe
          not that drastic.  Anyways you should be asleep for 104
          turns or roughly 21 minutes.  :<  Though others may try
          to wake you up sooner.

        From Z'leyra: [Re: Actions
          Z'leyra's immediate plan of action:                   
          Finish off the priestess (using the axe and keeping out of
          other people's way) then go check out the tapestry situation.
        GM: Ack.

        From Ben'dar: [Re: Actions]
          Ben'Dar elbows his way into the "feeding frenzy" around the
          priestess, doing a two-handed stab with his spear down at the
          priestess on the floor.

          After the priestess is good and dead, Ben'Dar will turn around
          and look at the fogging tapestry with a dumb look on his face,
          wondering what is going on.

          (ooc:hopefully some of our wizards/magic users near it can
          identify fairly quickly whether or not the tapestry is some sort
          of magical threat?)
        GM: Ack.

        From Jordi: [Re: Actions]
          Jordi simple tries to attack again the priestess. With just
          some attacks more, the shield will be gone, and the priestess
          will die.  Or at least, it's what Jordi hopes...
        GM: Ack.

        GM: Farseeker has determined the clues and figured a new way
          of attack on the Priestess.  By phone Ryan gives the below


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

        Turn 2: Phase 4

        [Mana Allocation] - [None]
        [Missile Fire]    - [None]
        [Magic Effect]    - [None]

        [Melee & Movement]

           [Thig flies a few feet eastward to try to get a better view
            of the tapestry to the east.]

           [Farseker hollers out while he moves south..]
           Farseeker: "Get on top of her!"
           [He then continues toward the Priestess and around the bodies
            to get within a foot of her but doens't reach her.]

           [Triest comes south and around the others to try a quick
            stab at the priestess but fails to hit even the shield.]

           [Unali sees two others surround the Priestess and finds her
            completely surrounded now.  Unali sees no position to get
            to the Priestess to attack.  Not without hitting others
            or trying to move others away.  She stays and surveys
            the room..]
           GM: I figured you wanted to attack but with 8 to 1 odds
             and her already wounded figured you wanted them to take
             her out.  Plus this helps in future events.  Hope this
             is acceptable.

           [Ben'dar hears farseeker (knowing marentian) and stops onto
            the priestess but in fact climbs onto the energy shield
            itself.  It sparks for a split second as both feet are
            standing on thin air just a few centimeters from her
            legs.  He tries a down stab at the chest with the spear
            but it impacts on the shield and is deflected.]

           [Caladan continues to eye the tapestry and decides to glance
            behind him at the West wall and notice it seems to emit
            fog in only a small portion of it...but its hard to see
            behind the fog..]

           [The Priestess begins to panic being surrounded.  She tries
            to squirm out but finds all areas blocked.  She twists and
            stares at Ben'dar trying to stab her.  But her shield still
            holds.  She grabs a dagger from her belt and throws it
            straight for Ben'dar..it sparks as it leaves the shield
            and flies straight for Ben'dar.  But instead it flies
            past him and misses him by a good 2 inches..She grimaces
            and begins a small chant of words..]

           [Wi sees Ben'dar climb ontop the shield.  He also steps
            on the shield.  But as soon as his first foot completes
            the step the shield sparks all over in a white shimmering
            glow and collapses.  Ben'dar falls down to his knees and
            almost stumbles...Wi still remains his balance and sees
            this and stabs at the Priestess.  The sword hits her
            with no shield and does 5 points of damage.  The Priestess
            wounds in the lower abdomen bleeds and shock overcomes
            her eyes.  She gags and coughs up blood.  Then turns to
            the group as if to eye each person slowly and speaks..]
           Priestess: "Your all dead! You-" [in climan but doesn't finish
             it as her head turns and her body sags..]

           GM: Gee who'd thought a Diplomat would take out the
             Priestess :)

           [Kasha leans down to check the body of Chion slumped and
            unconscious.  He finds a steady pulse and the wound
            to his head minor.  No brusing or swelling.  He should
            be fine.]

           [Cholan looks around and surveys the room..]

           [Z'leyra leans down and checks the pulse of the Priestess
            and finds she is still alive but barely.  Seems she
            is only unconscious.]

           [Jordi overcome with anger..disgust and confidence at
            the time thrusts his sword into the chest of the Priestess
            and finishes her off.  He realizes after that she was
            already down and out but through his anger he was blinded
            to the fact..and to seek revenge..]
           gM: This fits in with past events and personalization.  If
             this does not so or you don't wish to kill her off let
             me know.  Either way she'll likely die in a few minutes
             anyways from blood loss without aid.  But I figure based
             on other comments you've done for Jordi this fits.

          [Ris approaches Chion and pulls up his sword.  Kasha sees
           this and stands up.]
          GM: No longer in tactical phase time here.

          [Kasha speaks quickly and stops the sword with his arm.]
          Kasha: "What are you doing!?"
          Ris: "He tried to kill me!"
          Kasha: "Likely a spell he was under.  Drop your sword."

          [Ris looks around and finds the room looking at him for
           the most part.  He sheaths his sword and stands back.
           He nods at Kasha.]

          [Kasha then stands back and looks at Thig.]
          Kasha: "Thig!!  Over here.  Need you to do something."

          [Thig waves a hand toward them and watches the tapestry.]

          [By now everyone has scanned the room and notice what others
           are looking at as 5 seconds pass.  Caladan decides he ought
           to burn the tapestry but that would cause a great deal of
           smoke and could cause problems.

           Suddenly from the East tapestry a reptilian like foot steps
           onto the floor and is seen through the fog.  Then a whipping
           tail like structure (you think?)..then a huge body frame...
           It begins to unravel and seems to grow and grow...and grow..
           a tail...four limbs...then it becomes obvious when the fog
           quickly ends and dissolves...many have seen them on books..
           paintings...even heard of their stories...a dragon..but
           this one seems much smaller than typical.  It unravels to
           about 12 feet in length and stands about 8 feet at the shoulder..
           its wide eyes glow a eerie blue and it is dark brownish color.

           Meanwhile on the other tapestry those who spot that notice
           3 forms emerge...what forms quickly on all fours looks to
           be like large dogs..or canine type creatures..large fangs..
           large eyes...the head and shoulders stand about 3 feet
           high off the ground...

           The fog on both tapestries end...a gurgling sound can be
           heard from the dragon like creature and a low growl is
           heard from the dog like creatures...

           Kashs sees the creatures form and quickly yells for Thig]
          Kasha: "Thig quick we need everyone up and going over here
          [Thig nods and knows a heavy battle may ensue.  He quickly
           flies over to Kasha.]
          Kasha: "Just make him forget the last 30 seconds.  Can
            you do that while he is unconscious?"
          Thig: "Never tried..but can try.."
          Kasha: "Hurry...try and wake him too we may need all the
            help we can.."


          [As this occurs Sava watches the creatures form and sees a
           shadow near her.  She turns to face a new person dressed
           in robes.  She steps back a foot not knowing who it is.
           Suresh about 20 feet away hears her and turns around
           and smiles.]
          Suresh: "Trembyl! How?"


          [Neva checks Jordi over quickly and helps his wounds.  She
           then notices the canines and says in Elf to Jordi but
           just more to no one in particular.]
          Neva: "Hellhounds...nasty..."


          [Xian looks the gem over on the throne and just decides to
           hit it hard with his dagger hilt.  With both hands he
           slams down on the gem and it breaks...the reddish glow
           fades and then stops...Xian curses...that simple?]

    Ok.  I wasn't going to do this as a last ditch thing.  But since
    the battle was won faster with less damage by the enemy the priestess
    used her doomsday spell more or less. :)   Good for her bad for
    you.  Get clear of these and it will be free sailing.  There might
    be pirate activity on the way home but that is a random event
    rather than planned.  This is the LAST planned event.  You can go
    all out magic wise or you can save...which might still be wise...
    ...I'm always wise to converse mana ...just NEVER know (EFG) :)

    The map above reflects milling around after the death of the Priestess.
    We'll start tactical combat on friday and we'll start with 2 phases
    if this is ok to you guys.  It'll speed up things.

    The 3 on the top left are the 3 hellhounds (single heads) the
    dragon on the right is the DDs represented by size.  This won't
    be a super bogus dragon as that would be unfair to you guys.  I
    just rolled randomly what creatures would be on the tapestry and
    this is what they were.  But the dragon does appear groggy so you
    guys may have a few phases to attack it before it fully becomes
    aware of things and reacts from being awakened from the tapestry.
    The hellhounds however seem less groggy and may react faster.  Pick
    your target or flee... :)

    Good luck..and trust me guys like I say before I never do things like
    this to deliberatly kill off characters.  Combat could but I'll
    never try on purpose.
