GUNDER, RAIKON, CILANDRA, ONYX
We are back in the fiery forge room – knowing that we must continue to protect CILANDRA to finish the time needed to keep the EFREET at bay from her BANISHMENT.
FLAME HEART the powerful guard with the wicked spear and cultish fervor remains HELD by GUNDER’s spell for now-
ONYX looks over at the team of AZERS who continue to battle the SALAMANDER- One of them has fallen and looks to be bruised and bloodied- thick grayish blood
ONYX goes over to pull this one from the fray and attempts to make this AZER comfortable as he looks alive but unconscious – She puts a bit of flaming brandy on his mouth thinking water may not be their beverage of choice.
Then alas … FLAMEHEART is now UNHELD and starts to shake himself out of his previous frozen statue state. HE looks angry and when able to move directs his fury onto GUNDER
With a terrible hit- GUNDER hits the ground with a thud!
CILANDRA runs away and FLAMEHEART laughs
RAIKON bravely evokes the spell VAMPIRIC TOUCH with the intention of causing damage and pain and draining the health of this bad man and giving it to himselfGUNDER saving throw- 1 Success
ZOMBIE Ambles up to the GUARD
ONYX rushes in to attack, hearing CILANDRA’s warning shout and – feeling like the potion she had taken for Fire resistance- ( with the gills-?) may give her extra protection –
She hits successfully hard twice
FLAMEHEART with a wicked grin turns to strike upon RAIKON and stabs him with his flaming spear in the gut- feeling searing heat with the horrible puncture- self cauterizing-?RAIKON hangs on to his concentrated spell
FLAMEHEART’s hit misses ONYX
CILANDRA dashes out and deals a critical hit with her ELDRICH BLAST
RAIKON then has a Critical hit on his VAMPIRIC TOUCH gaining 9 hit points from the FLAME HEART and yet feels searing flaming pain up his arm where he touched him- his hand burning and searing and scarred.
GUNDER has another successful saving throw
ONYX looks over the AZERS and calls the two whose names she knows for help – RZDIS! GRIS! She then hits again with furious anger and Critical hits and deals a huge amount of damage
ZOMBIE – our “rotting meat shield” throws a bludgeoning arm at the guard
FLAMEHEART hits again hard to RAIKON who stumbles but hangs on and the next hit from
FLAMEHEART is a miss as he stabs the ground
FLAMEHEART hits ONYX and she roars in flaming pain
RAIKON attempts another VAMPIRIC TOUCH , unfortunately in reaching out to the
FLAMEHEART he slips in some fresh blood and stumbles into the zombie throw pillow.com and guts TM
CILANDRA dashes in and dishes out another ELDRICH BLAST and
KABOOOMMMMM !!! FLAMEHEART in his last moments explodes in a terrible blast his body and metal armor showers us with shrapnel of burning hot pieces of meatal! ( that would be amour plus flesh)
RAIKON – hits the ground and his world goes dark…
ONYX is knocked back- her head hits the ground hot burning embers lodged in her skin seeing stars, but still conscious.
CILANDRA who luckily dashed back behind the pillar feels the blast and the incredible surge of heat.
ZOMBIE – RIP- becomes Napoleon Blown Apart
Quickly, ONYX attempts to attend to the wounds of RAIKON and GUNDER buy unwrapping RAIKON’s healers kit and fumbles with the bandages and wraps- trying to heal frantically with her hands and chants of “Heal! Heal!”
Here is where Dave tells us about Violent Monkey CPR – playing at the Catalyst, soon!
Luckily for both GUNDER and RAIKON, CILANDRA steps in and directs ONYX to help – She then put her hands on the wounds, tying off some of the worst and stabilizes both of our brave party members suffering with Zero hit points.
The AZERS have finally defeated the SALAMANDER and drag it’s body to the lava pit
Others tend to their wounded friend, who still seems to be unconscious.
CILANDRA and ONYX decide our only choice is to retreat to the relative safety of the secret tomb of FINDEN STONEMENDER to attempt to recover and regroup
CILANDRA and ONYX attempt in their own way to get the help of RZDIS and GRIS to carry RAIKON’s body to the tomb. At first we think they comprehend until we realize they are carrying RAIKON’S limp body to the lava! No No No!
We do get them to help, ONYX with GUNDER and AZERS carry RAIKON to the hallway before the saferoom and we take RAIKON AND GUNDER from there keeping the location secret
ONYX gives one of the AZERS a firestone and bows in thanks.
CILANDRA; “I’ve Never Been So Happy to See A Tomb”
2 hours later as ONYX cleans her wounds and weapons, CILANDRA check out the loot from the Cells and they generally regroup, GUNDER and RAIKON come back to consciousness-
Oh happy day!
ONYX says to GUNDER and RAIKON– “Well you’re not in heaven yet, you are here with FINDEN STONE MENDER ”
