GUNDER, RAIKON, CILANDRA, ONYX
Where we left off- a conflict a brewin-
Guys in bunks get up and are putting on their armor
The door to the south opens up
CILANDRA with her crafty ways gets a surprise attack and her eyes turn white and she creates power for an ELDRICH BLAST
She targets a “fire fighter” ( ha) at the table and has a good and shocking hit
RAIKON in his fire cult disguise also gets a surprise hit and doles out 3 magic missiles – shoots one at each of the fighters at the table. pew pew pew!
Roll initiave !
ONYX 15 GUNDER 14 RAIKON 11
GUNDER throws his thrower of throwiness at the fighter with the spear
ONYX attempts a hit on a fighter at the table – and ends up missing the fighters (Clatter splatter) – knocking plates and cups off the table and cuts one of the dudes potatoes in half!
Now the fire cult-
The guy on the left of ONYX pulls out a blade and it immediately alights in flames and he scores a bad crit on ONYX getting her in the arm with his sword and it burns terribly
Fire cultist with a spear misses ONYX twice ( pshew)
Fire cultist #3 with a flaming sword takes a hit at GUNDER and hits him – ow!
GUNDER shields CILANDRA
CILANDRA attacks with a spell – TENACIOUS BLADE- which she successfully does cast- a hand blackens and creates a psychic dagger with a jagged edge which she successfully plunges into the cultist the effect is of a broken blade sunk into their flesh that continues to cause necrotic and piercing damage and a negative effect to the movement of the target
CILANDRA likes making things fester!
RAIKON emits a ray of frost which unfortunately misses
Then another figure comes out to the open door
This man is a wiry tall well-appointed person with red skin and some movement in his skin as if it was incendiary- like blackened coal and embers swirling around like the obsidian pillars and a majestic flowing mane of hair that appears to be just like fire
GUNDER takes a hit at one cultist attacking CILANDRA
ONYX take 2 hits and one of two is good and kills one-
Uses her ACTION SURGE as a bonus and misses
ONYX dodges some attacks and takes some hits
GUNDER misses an arrow shot at him by another fighter in the room but gets stabbed and poked with a flaming spear and continues to protect CILANDRA
CILANDRA misses an arrow shot at her and then attacks with a cloud of gas
RAIKON wanted to cast animate dead on the fighter ONYX killed but he cannot as we realize the spell needs one minute to zombie-fest
RAIKON shoots an ACID ARROW he missed a direct hit at 16 but got 2 D 4 damage – smoke and sizzling discomfort and some damage to the cultist
FLAMING HAIR DUDE disappears and then reappears in another part of the room
GUNDER does 19 and 22 with his hammer – KILT – another one!
Then the Robed magic user figures who had been standing quietly in the back of the room
until now ! They raise their hands forming flames which shoots out and across the room at all of us
ONYX hair is singed RAIKON gets singed in the robe and beard
ONYX enraged by the fire musters her strength and hits with a brutal crit and cuts one sword guy down with 44 damage !! KILT!
Then she gets to attack the spear guy for more damage
Predictably she is then attacked by the spear and now has some pretty serious bleeding wounds
CILANDRA gets hit by the crossbow
CILANDRA attacks Crossbow guy Blasts him back with 2X eldritch blast
RAIKON lets loose his signature Fireball with 32 damage- and despite the baddies affiliation and affinity to fire they still were victim to his attack with crispy burnt body flesh
The Fire guy is clapping and laughing – and then casts some magic-
A Massive wall of flames erupts from floor to ceiling and forms an imprisoning ring around us extending and including a possible escape route to the passage way
The fire is certainly hot and at the same time it’s translucency allows us to see through it
The Red man asks: “ Have you enough???? Why are you here”
During this time GUNDER lays on hands and provides ONXY with 35 healing hit points
From our Fire prison
CILANDRA says – “Our silence is because we are awestruck by you” and “We want to know more about you, BASTIAN” (as we figured this must be the man in charge who was being referred to)
At some point CILANDRA goes into communication with BASTIAN psychically so that they are the only ones who can hear the conversation –
CILANDRA- : “We have a common enemy- I seek VANIFER- I see her face more and more and she is responsible for the death of my friends and family. She speaks to me to be better than I am- and uses TINDERSTRIKE – to destroy and create followers through mutual hatred
Bastian, you don’t know me – Where does your power come from? You power is other worldly
BASTIAN: “the power to wield TINDERSTRIKE is only for one that is with the flame ! Rites and rituals do not guarantee success with TINDERSTRIKE
The fire emanating from his skin glows hotter – and he and laughs
BASTIAN makes the flame ring grow hotter brighter and closer with his impassioned answers
CILANDRA: “Perhaps we can be of help to you BASTIAN”
BASTIAN: “GO to VANIFER – defeat her- get TINDER STRIKE from her and bring it to me. You do this and you will experience power not yet seen- The power from PRINCE IMIX. DO not use it as a weapon – return TINDERSTIKE to me show loyalty in the name of the ETERNAL FLAME. We will use it against THE CRUSING WAVE! Let us join forces and have the flames shine brighter than ever!
BASTIAN lets the firewall down and the FIRECULTISTS who are still alive disperse and do not attack
“WHERE is VANIFER?” CILANDRA asks-
BASTIAN: “In the South of the Dungeon Cross the Chasm past the stairs continue to the large room pass the sleeping mats and pallets
Be careful there will be others on the lower leave you will find them weaker than my men
From that room go EAST to VANIFERs lair if she’s’ not there she has gone below to the NODE OF FIRE
to where the large red floating woman was overseeing forging-
there is a small platform you can ride-
To use it the commands re ; EMBER to rise and ASH to fall”
ONYX asks BASTIAN if we can use his name in the battles to come and with his hubris he cares not who knows his desire to overthrow VANIFER
ALL hail the TORCHAFIS!
The magic users with BASTIAN have flaming robes and fiery eyes- ( LAVA-jamas – ha ha )
“Thanks for the directions, BASTIAN we will recoup and go forward – “
Note to your writer- find the text for the inscription on the casket in our room of rest
We take a short rest- restoring hit points collecting ourselves and planning spells RAIKON raises a HOBGOBLIN from the dead to use as a Zombie fighter – and we are ready from next thing!
GUNDER follows TORM the god of war allowing for the ethical question of raising the dead in NECROMANCY to serve as a fighter- as in “All’s fair in LOVE and WAR
