Game Update #177 in sequence (file #1229)
Admin Notes: None.
From Kiet: [Re: Actions]
Kiet is thrilled with the results of his spell use on this
occasion. He hopes to repeat it often. The Vong aren't so tough
when they are trussed like a roast, and are almost certainly as
While Kiet is retrieving his rope he glances up to Zhou and says
"I will not go back to the High Elder and have to explain...
From Fremea: [Re: Actions]
Fremea curses in her head for not thinking of the vong as smart
enough to wait for them. She may not like the fact that she is
having to hide because Lin is prejudice, but he has come in
handy so far. Too bad he will have to find out who she really
She makes sure she can jump on the back of the vong to pierce
the neck just right this time. No more surprises for this one.
[Augado 10th, 1634TH]
[Location: Middle Katai Plains]
[ Mountains west of Pamau]
[Time: 12:56:38 pm]
Raban continues running toward the cave entrance where he last
saw Fremea leave through the door.
Unali steps forward and flanks Farseeker and swings both daggers
at the last Vong warrior. The magical dagger fails to get even
close. The normal dagger drives deep into the left upper chest
doing moderate damage to the warrior.
Farseeker thrusts his great sword at the Vong warrior and hits
in the side middle of the Vong doing light damage.
Arawn still invisible slips toward the Vong warrior. It would
be a great chance to kill him. But the destination are the
humans. He moves past the Vong and toward them.
Inside the side hallway, Captain Lin thrusts his sword at the Vong
but fails to make contact.
The Vong thrusts his amphistaff at Farseeker and hits but the
chainmail protects the warrior from damage.
The Vong in the hallway thrusts at Captain Lin but his leather
armor also protects him from the spear's sharp blade.
Fremea slinks behind the warrior and jumps on his back. With
one arm he grips the Vong's neck. With her other hand she
draws the dagger toward his neck. But the dagger slices a deep
gash onto the back of the skull which is thick bone. Even
with that mild protection the Vong takes a moderate slice to his
head (4 points).
[Time: 12:56:41 pm]
Raban gets to the threshold of the Vong door and enters the
hallway where Fremea and Lin are fighting.
Unali lashes out with both daggers again. The magical dagger
digs into the lower right chest doing a minor wound. The
normal dagger slices upwards and does also a minor wound at
the Vong's head but not enough to even daze him.
Farseeker swings upward and the large blade slices a portion
of the Vong's right face off. The blade slices bone and
tissue alike almost cutting the head in half but vertically.
A chuck of Vong cheekbone flies to the ground. At the same
time the Vong is killed instantly.
Arawn continues to the humans but still has about 12 feet to go.
Captain Lin thrusts at the last Vong to be attacked but his
sharp blade fails to make contact.
The same Vong tries to knock Fremea off his back but twisting
back and forth wildly as he swings his amphistaff at Lin but
the spear-stick fails to hit Lin.
Fremea swings her dagger at the Vong's neck but his twisting
and thick leather blocks her strike and she doesn't hit skin.
[Time: 12:56:44 pm]
Arawn leans down to inspect the three humans. He finds two
are dead but the third one seems to be still alive.
Raban's shadow looms over Captain Lin and startles him just
a bit. Raban leans down and with one hand lifts up the Vong
warrior off his feet. With the other hand he grips the Vong's
neck and begins to choke him.
Captain Lin stabs one quick thrust and does moderate damage
to the warrior.
The Vong tries to swing his amphistaff at Raban but is starting
to lose his breath and strength. He fails to get close to the
Fremea sees her chance now that the Vong's arms are raised to his
neck to break Raban's hold. Fremea uses the chance to stab under
the Vong's right armpit and does the final damage to penetrate
the soft tissue there. The Vong falls limp but Raban holds on to
him until Fremea climbs off.
[Time: 12:56:44 pm]
Kiet pulls off the now dead rope off the dead Vong and glances
at Kell being treated by Z'leyra. Zhou stands nearby and
glowers a bit.
While Kiet is retrieving his rope he glances up to Zhou and
says "I will not go back to the High Elder and have to explain
to him why you were killed."
Zhou sheathes his sword and looks down at Kiet. "Look here.
I said you are free of the honor and duty. You might not
not like coming back to report to the High Elder. But I have
to live there. If they find out I was just here to watch
things I'll lose face." He shakes his head in disgust and
walks to the north after Chion.
Kiet goes over to Kell to check on him. Oh, this arm wound
looks as bad as any of the others. He's lucky he's not nicknamed
the One Armed Bandit. "Z...can you heal him up anyway? He needs
to be able to fight." Kiet looks at Kell and says, you distract
them, and I'll rope them. Together, we could take out quite a
Arawn leans down to inspect the one human that is still alive.
He is a bit older maybe in his late 40s and it is obvious
that Vong coral implants are in his chest, arm and neck. The
Vong seemed to stab deep in the man's chest. Arawn can see
blood pool near his mouth from coughing up blood. Arawn doesn't
have much time but he prepares a spell.
The wounded man looks up after opening his eyes. His eyes
grow bright and shocked. He can feel someone touching him
and he knows there is someone there. But no one is seen?
The man coughs and then nods in realization. "Whoever you are.
Push that vile magic away!" He pushes Arawn's man away. "I
am beyond hope. Why do you think we didn't run away? Sometimes
death is better than this life." He reaches up to a piece of
coral on his cheek. "You must hope those who can be helped...
You must act fast."
Farseeker and Unali stand over the human and watches the
invisible Arawn listen to the man.
[Time: 12:57:44 pm]
"They are that way." The man points to the way Fremea has
gone. "There are many that can be saved. Act fast." The
man breathes heavily.
Arawn then becomes visible for the first time. This doesn't
seem to startle the man.
"Just end it. I am not worth saving. There are others...
women..children...who are worth it...your vile magic will
taint my soul. I rather die than that." The man looks
away to the other two humans.
Farseeker draws his great sword and raises it toward his
leg. He knows Arawn would be difficult to decide. Arawn
stares at the Farseeker and then at the man. He knows he
only has a few limited pills. It took the noble lady some
time to just heal. Is life better to treat and heal only
to be tainted by Vong implants? He could waste energy and
heal the man's wound and keep him alive.
GM: Small update for now. I started out well then brain decided
to go on vacation so couldn't think. I'll do a longer update
for next one. That will include details I wanted to do here
including Kell's healing and such. I'll likely work on that
in a couple days. Will update character sheets at that time
of the experience.
GM: So in 5 years since adventure #2 the Vong have been introduced.
I'm surprised no one has figured them out or talked about
them in detail. Would've given bonus points. :) Maybe
I'll type up an explanation of their origin in the pnp
GM: I asked this awhile back but not much response. If you
guys want to see all the adventures from #1 now I can place
them on the website to rewview.Just let me know if the
interest is there.
