2010-09-09 20:50:50.861 Dorvak rolls d20: 15 = 15
2010-09-09 20:51:18.162 DM: However, his skin turns to iron momentarily, and the beast’s massive bite
does not harm him.
2010-09-09 20:51:32.563 DM: The tentacle that has him grabbed squeezes him.
2010-09-09 20:52:00.140 Dorvak rolls d20: 12 = 12
2010-09-09 20:52:17.366 DM: Dealing no damage, but he is dazed until the end of the tentacle’s next
turn from the force of the grip.
2010-09-09 20:52:34.692 DM: Another tentacle lashes out at him, and he is bitten at again.
2010-09-09 20:52:45.792 Dorvak rolls d20: 7 = 7
2010-09-09 20:53:30.696 DM: The second tentacle misses him, but the creature’s mouth engulfs him
momentarily with crushing force. His skin hardens, but not enough to
protect it.

2010-09-09 20:54:44.876 DM: Ironbrow wards it off with his sword.
2010-09-09 20:55:08.281 Dorvak: I failed at math when ironbrow healed me and need to be 10hp higher not
cheating I swear! 46+34=80 not 70!
2010-09-09 20:55:12.255 DM: More tentacles burst up from the ground.
2010-09-09 20:55:32.132 DM: Dorvak yells something very strange because he meant ( instead of ".
2010-09-09 20:55:59.408 Dorvak: (I used asterisks tyvm I felt it deserved a special Im a failure tag)
2010-09-09 20:56:14.659 DM: Fair enough, I’m blind!
2010-09-09 20:56:15.434 Jerric: (( Well it made it an extra special failure ))
2010-09-09 20:56:15.734 DM: Jerric.

2010-09-09 20:56:59.741 Jerric rolls Damage, Longbow 1W (d10 + 3): 6 + 3 = 9
2010-09-09 20:57:00.391 DM: Jerric manages to shoot it in whatever passes for a vital area on this
thing.

2010-09-09 20:57:21.442 Jerric rolls Damage, Blade Storm (5): 5 = 5
2010-09-09 20:57:25.717 Jerric: (( Done ))
2010-09-09 20:57:30.693 DM: He then moves in and slices apart the tentacle menacing Morthos.
2010-09-09 20:58:51.782 DM: Morthos fires a magical missile at the mouth. (The real Morthos had to
afk for a minute.)
2010-09-09 20:59:09.333 DM: Lanley follows it with a pair of arrows.
2010-09-09 20:59:19.984 DM: But both his shots are terrible.
2010-09-09 20:59:25.234 DM: Ironbrow.
2010-09-09 20:59:35.460 Ironbrow: (Fountain wall is difficult terrain, right?)
2010-09-09 20:59:40.235 DM: Yep.
2010-09-09 20:59:44.960 Ironbrow: (Nuts.)
2010-09-09 21:00:27.613 Ironbrow shifts position and hacks down the nearest tentacle.
2010-09-09 21:00:31.063 Ironbrow rolls Greatsword Attack (d20 + 16): 7 + 16 = 23
2010-09-09 21:00:41.764 Ironbrow: (possibly!)
2010-09-09 21:00:54.639 DM: On this particular tentacle, that is in fact a hit.
2010-09-09 21:00:58.865 DM: Ironbrow hacks it apart.
2010-09-09 21:01:27.491 Ironbrow: (Done, out of range to heal Dorvak.)
2010-09-09 21:01:36.667 DM: Dorvak.
2010-09-09 21:01:43.392 Dorvak: (no worries Im going to second wind for defense anyway)
2010-09-09 21:02:25.522 Dorvak holds up his axe as its head bursts into an electical storm (left tentacle, right, big guy)
2010-09-09 21:02:25.872 Dorvak rolls Electrified Lash (vs. Fort) (d20 + 12): 14 + 12 = 26

2010-09-09 21:02:44.723 DM: Both of the tentacles are elecrified into a charred mess.
2010-09-09 21:03:43.857 Dorvak takes a deep breath preparing for the upcoming bite
2010-09-09 21:04:08.483 Dorvak: (done)
2010-09-09 21:04:38.160 DM: Without a tentacle to feed you into its mouth, it can only move far enough
to bite you with the front part of its mouth. Which it does.
2010-09-09 21:05:02.637 DM: For 19 points of damage.
2010-09-09 21:05:21.338 DM: Tentacles attack Ironbrow and Jerric.

2010-09-09 21:06:21.518 Ironbrow: (Has this thing even been lightly scratched yet?)
2010-09-09 21:06:32.570 Jerric: (( I lightly scratched it in the eye? ))
2010-09-09 21:06:32.845 DM: Morthos and Jerric have each given it a few good hits.
2010-09-09 21:06:51.226 DM: It’s not yet bloodied, but it’s not unwounded.
2010-09-09 21:07:00.126 Ironbrow: (nyaarg, can’t even get to the dang thing. :D)
2010-09-09 21:07:19.877 DM: If you want to get to it, you could always stop fithing the tentacles…..
>.>
2010-09-09 21:07:25.503 Jerric: (( Luckily all of our damage dealers have range ))
2010-09-09 21:07:27.078 DM: Jerric.
2010-09-09 21:07:34.703 Jerric: (( Yeah great idea there ))
2010-09-09 21:07:50.554 Jerric: (( Need to look up something
2010-09-09 21:09:03.790 Jerric: (( Reading an action and then being done, counts as ending my turn, right?
))
2010-09-09 21:09:28.218 Jerric: (( I want to use blade storm and then fire my arrows, I think I can do it )
2010-09-09 21:09:29.793 DM: When you ready an action, your EoT effects occur when the ready goes off,
I believe.
2010-09-09 21:09:38.218 Jerric: (( Bleh ))
2010-09-09 21:09:44.794 DM: Checking PH real quick.
2010-09-09 21:09:58.321 Jerric: (( Ready is 291 ))
2010-09-09 21:10:31.848 Jerric: (( Doesn’t seem to say though ))
2010-09-09 21:10:48.749 DM: I was thinking of delay. Ready has a normal end of turn esquence.
2010-09-09 21:10:55.525 DM: I can’t seem to type currently.
2010-09-09 21:11:19.877 Jerric: (( Ok, will ready an action to draw my bow and fire at the mouth, once I
chop up the tentacle next to me ))
2010-09-09 21:11:45.804 DM: Jerric hacks the tentacle to pieces.

2010-09-09 21:15:20.246 Ironbrow: (Need to get me a close burst 1 something.)
2010-09-09 21:15:48.322 Ironbrow tries to cut itself free of the ever-sprouting forest of tentacles.
2010-09-09 21:15:50.448 Ironbrow rolls Greatsword Attack (d20 + 16): 8 + 16 = 24
2010-09-09 21:16:21.949 Ironbrow: (the one that’s grabbing me, specifically)
2010-09-09 21:16:23.974 DM: Sadly, Ironbrow’s sword is deflected by iron-hard scales.
2010-09-09 21:16:27.750 Ironbrow: (Bugger.)
2010-09-09 21:16:52.276 Ironbrow tries to stand tough! (Stand Tough, Dorvak and I regain 10 HP, no surge expenditure needed.)
2010-09-09 21:17:09.852 Ironbrow: (Done)
2010-09-09 21:17:16.077 DM: Dorvak.
2010-09-09 21:19:28.992 Dorvak activates his cloak of translocation
2010-09-09 21:19:52.893 Dorvak teleports to a more strategic vantage point
2010-09-09 21:20:09.569 Dorvak swings down, lightning trailing his blade

2010-09-09 21:20:52.872 DM: Dorvak’s axe cleaves into the thing, but his secondary arc of lightning
fails to strike the second tentacle.
2010-09-09 21:21:14.423 DM: As the tentacle is destroyed, it attempts to fling Ironbrow.
2010-09-09 21:21:38.426 Dorvak: (done)
2010-09-09 21:21:48.277 DM: Ironbrow is flung into a blob of green mist, taking 19 points of damage (1
resisted) from the flinging.
2010-09-09 21:21:58.678 DM: The mist then explodes with reaching tendrils for Ironbrow, Morthos, and
Jerric.
2010-09-09 21:22:44.555 DM: Ironbrow waves away the tendrils that reach for him, but Morthos and
Jerric are not so lucky, each taking 9 points of (necrotic and acid)
damage.
2010-09-09 21:23:12.412 DM: The foul tendrils also dissolve the two tentacles that were in range of
the burst.
2010-09-09 21:23:16.387 Jerric: (( I have resist 5 necrotic and acid, how much do I take? ))
2010-09-09 21:23:26.588 DM: If you have resist 5 to both elements, then you take 4 points.
2010-09-09 21:23:50.689 DM: I forgot you had resist acid.
2010-09-09 21:24:07.340 DM: Actually, do you have resist acid?
2010-09-09 21:24:25.391 Jerric: (( Checking ))
2010-09-09 21:24:38.244 Jerric: (( Sorry, poison ))
2010-09-09 21:24:44.294 Jerric: (( Both are green! ))
2010-09-09 21:24:51.545 DM: Indeed they are. So you take the 9.
2010-09-09 21:25:26.522 DM: Dorvak is assaulted by tentacles.
2010-09-09 21:25:40.947 DM: But both of their attacks are terrible, and he easily deflects them.

2010-09-09 21:30:37.335 DM: Morthos’ acid splatters against the creature, but it still sears it.
2010-09-09 21:30:52.636 DM: Lanley follows with arrows.
2010-09-09 21:31:07.444 DM: One is terrible, but one follows Jerric’s earlier one and accidentally
hits a vital spot.
2010-09-09 21:31:19.770 DM: Ironbrow.
2010-09-09 21:31:37.951 Ironbrow: (I’m not prone or anything, am I?)
2010-09-09 21:31:39.001 DM: At the start of Ironbrow’s turn, the mist he is standing in attempts to
force its way into his innards.
2010-09-09 21:32:02.304 DM: Nope, no prone or anything. However, you do take 18 points of (acid and
necrotic) damage.

2010-09-09 21:37:03.336 DM: However, he waves his axe in the air and the creature shies back, not
wanting to get axed in the tongue.
2010-09-09 21:37:33.088 DM: Tentacles burst from the ground.
2010-09-09 21:37:37.313 DM: Jerric.
2010-09-09 21:37:49.589 Jerric: (( Just to double check, I can charge the mouth, right? ))

2010-09-09 21:41:26.092 Jerric rolls Attack, Reckless (d20 + 5 + 4 + 2 + 2 + 1): 6 + 5 + 4 + 2 + 2 + 1 = 20
2010-09-09 21:41:30.843 Jerric rolls Damage, Scimitar Dance (5): 5 = 5
2010-09-09 21:41:33.343 Jerric rolls Damage, Blade Storm (5): 5 = 5
2010-09-09 21:42:02.975 DM: Jerric’s last attack is a glancing blow, merely shaving some skin off, but
it seems to have convinced the creature that it has had enough.
2010-09-09 21:42:20.851 DM: The ground rumbles as it sinks into the dirt, and all of its tentacles
withdraw with it.
2010-09-09 21:42:39.427 Jerric jumps off the fountain and wipes his brow
2010-09-09 21:43:01.903 Ironbrow frowns at the ground suspiciously and pokes the tip of its sword into the loose soil dubiously.
2010-09-09 21:43:31.705 Jerric: "Morthos, let’s start that ritual before anything else comes after us."
2010-09-09 21:43:36.233 Ironbrow: "Agreed."
2010-09-09 21:44:02.159 Morthos: done
2010-09-09 21:44:06.560 Morthos: "done"
2010-09-09 21:45:05.772 DM: Morthos moves up to the edge of the fountain and begins summoning forth
energy to cast the ritual.
2010-09-09 21:45:40.999 DM: The blobs of green mist all around you appear to be strangely affected by
this; they form into flying spheres and begin bouncing off an invisible
barrier around the fountain, like a moth with a lampshade.
2010-09-09 21:46:25.302 DM: As the ritual progresses, their bouncing becomes more and more violent.
By the time the ritual is nearly over, they are frenetically flying about,
leaving contrails of green mist glowing in the air after them.
2010-09-09 21:47:23.940 DM: Finally, the ritual completes, and another towering beacon of silver light
springs up into the sky. However, the blobs of mist do something too, as
they form into what appears to be a green doorway, floating in the air.
2010-09-09 21:47:41.218 DM: And it’s a little early, but this is an appropriate cliffhanger to call it
on for tonight.
2010-09-09 21:47:50.843 Jerric: Dun dun dun
2010-09-09 21:47:57.944 Ironbrow: Fair enough. Man, was that a silt horror?
2010-09-09 21:48:02.119 DM: Yes it was.
2010-09-09 21:48:02.969 Dorvak: Sarlacc!
2010-09-09 21:48:09.723 Ironbrow: Damn that thing is hard to fight. :D
2010-09-09 21:48:15.024 Dorvak: NEED MORE AOE
2010-09-09 21:48:16.574 DM: I even had to mod it to make it easier.
2010-09-09 21:48:18.949 Ironbrow: For serious.
2010-09-09 21:48:21.624 Jerric: Hooray for automatic damage
2010-09-09 21:48:30.425 DM: The main thing was supposed to be burrowing around at 6 squares a round,
underground most of the time.
2010-09-09 21:48:57.026 DM: I said it’s annoying to fight something that’s underground most of the
time and just gave it more tentacles.
2010-09-09 21:49:52.429 Ironbrow: Alrighty then, gonna shut down and do some PvP before it gets too late.
2010-09-09 21:49:57.330 Ironbrow: Y’all enjoy, see you next week.
2010-09-09 21:50:04.680 Morthos: later
2010-09-09 21:50:04.955 Disconnected.
