Black and Red (D'aden and Olven)
Olven stood close to the lever on his side of the first portcullis when D'aden walked around the corner beyond the other portcullis. He was pursued by a female, elven like, apparition with hellish red pinpricks for eyes, dressed in a black robe.

D'aden ignored her attacks, but then her incorporeal arms seemed to pass through him without effect.

"Hey!  D'aden!  There's some kind of ghost trying to grab you!"  Olven Wolf still holds his spear and shield.  The mercenary wrinkles his forehead.  He isn't quite sure how to go about fighting something that doesn't actually have a body.  "Hey!  Ghost elf!  Are you friend or foe?"

OOC:  Is this a pretty elf ghost?  That does make a difference.  (They're usually the super evil kind.)

D'aden walks towards Olven, ignoring the apparition. "Yeah, I know. But it's like it isn't there. I can't touch it and it doesn't hurt MEEEE!"
The last swipe of the elven maid finally got through, and D'aden rushed forward assuming it wouldn't follow.

"Here, let me try."  Hefting his spear, Olven Wolf steps forward and jabs at the phantom with his spear.  He doesn't expect the attack to do anything, but the ghost seems hostile.

OOC:  Attack!

The heroes pulled the levers and opened their portcullises and took one step towards the opening portcullises. The apparition swiped again and D'aden was able to avoid one of them. And fortunately the other didn't harm him further.

D'aden rushed forward to Olven's side and past the DOOR on his left. And Olven stepped between him and the pursuing apparition. His spear went through the apparition twice, seemingly with no effect whatsoever. The apparition ignored Olven and swiped at D'aden again. This time the bard was able to avoid both of them.

[What do you do?]

D'aden seems to figure something out, and he begins to actively dodge the phantom. "Can you get that door open, it won't bother you while it's after me."

Olven opened the door. The room beyond was about 50 feet long and half that wide, with their door in the middle of the long side. The ceiling was about 50 feet above them.

In the center of the room was a large table, surrounded by ten skeletons fighting five spectral minions. Had they just jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire?

But Roisin was in the mouth of the corridor to the right. She cast a fireball that brought one of the spectral minions to the ground. And the undead in the room, now having noticed both Roisin and Olven, split up. With five skeletons and two spectral minions going for each of them.

D'aden had been correct though. The apparition continued to focus on him. One of her swipes missing and D'aden dodging the other one.

Apparent exits: Door (Olven, D'aden). Door in the middle of opposing wall. Corridor to the right (Roisin). Corridor to the left.

[Olven you have one step remaining in this turn, you cannot attack. D'aden, you have a complete turn ahead of you. Both of you will get full turns before the undead acts again. So you can post for both now.]

"Roisin!" Olven calls out.  More undead, skeletons and ghosts this time.  He grins as Roisin's fireball takes out one of the spectres.  "Let's try to reach her," he says to D'aden.  He drops his spear and draws his axe.

OOC:  Drop spear.  Draw axe.

Use Step and Attack maneuvers to attack whatever enemy is closest, prioritizing skeletons.  Move toward Roisin.

D'aden begins heading straight at the undead melee. "I've got an idea," he says, "maybe my malefic leman will leave me for another she has more in common with. I'm pretty sure I can avoid them all for a bit."
Dodging what he can, he attempts to lead the vengeful spirit that chases him into the other group of undead.

OOC: His overconfidence is getting a workout lately.

Black, Red, and White (D'aden, Olven and Roisin)
Olven brought down two skeletons, leaving only piles of bones, as he moved as close to Roisin as he could. The undead facing Roisin were now "surrounded," but so was Olven.

Roisin brought down another spectral minion. And D'aden moved out of the corridor and into the room, pursued by the apparition.

The apparition continued to ignore all other targets and swiped at D'aden again. He was able to avoid the first, but the second past right through him and for the second time ripping some of him away.

D'aden was able to draw away one spectral minion from Olven, that swung its very normal sword at him, which D'aden tried, but failed to avoid. Fortunately his armor protected him.

Three skeletons attacked Olven. Two of them missed. He failed to avoid the third, but his armor protected him from almost all of the damage. His shield blocked the spectral minion's attack.

Ochre took care of one of the skeletons and only three of the four skeletons could get to Roisin. All three attacked, one of them missed, and she was unable to avoid either of those attacks. Injuring her so deeply that she was barely holding on to consciousness.

Ochre led the remaining skeleton and one spectral minion on a merry chase away from his master.

Apparent exits: Door (Olven, D'aden). Door in the middle of opposing wall. Corridor to the right (Roisin). Corridor to the left.



D'aden: HP 14/14. HT = 5 (That swipe was worse and lowered HT permanently by 5, also affecting your HT-based skills. Only high level magic will be able to restore your HT back to normal.)
Olven: HP 16/15
Roisin: HP 8/0

Olven Wolf watches, eyebrows raised, as D'aden launches himself right into the scrim.  Battling his way to Roisin, he tries his best to support her, but gasps as one of the skeletons rips into her.

He turns his head as Ochre leads the two more undead away, and then he stands beside Roisin, ready to face more fiends.

OOC:  Remain close to Roisin and attack any undead that come within range.

D'aden continues to move, turning towards Roisin and advancing. As he does so, he swings his staff at the spectral minion attacking him, "I know I can beat you, at least."

OOC: move and attack with staff (-14), D'aden Tor VIII rolled 8,8 using 3d6,2d6+2.  strike and damage.

Roisin motioned to D'aden to return to her side, as she wove yet another spell to take care of the spectre close to D'aden. She could see he was in deep trouble and had no idea what he was facing.

Olven reduced another two skeletons to pieces.

D'aden's staff passed through the spectral minion.

Roisin cast a fireball at the apparition, which brought it to the ground. She continued to cling to wakefulness.

Ochre dealt with the skeleton pursuing it.

The four remaining skeletons all turned on Olven. Two of them missed and the warrior defended against the others.

Ochre continued to evade the pursuing spectral minion.

Two spectral minions turned on D'aden. One missed and D'aden dodged the other.

Roisin wanted to express her exasperation at D'aden's foolhardiness. "You can't hurt them" she said before she started speaking in Magius, drawing from the words to invoke another fireball against the spectral figures D'aden was fighting. As the fireball flew she turned to the construct. "Utrecht, destroy the skeletons"

Olven Wolf's axe gets a workout, shattering bone as he takes on the remaining skeletons.  "D'aden, come to us!  Let Roisin deal with the spectres!"  His axe in his right hand, his shield in his left, he blocked another skeleton's attack as he swings once more.

OOC:  Attack!

As he attempts to get out of Roisin's line of fire and swings a misguided blow at a skeleton, D'aden says, "I don't mind letting her do that, because they're certainly doing a good job of dealing with me!"

OOC:19:39, Today: D'aden Tor VIII rolled 14,13 using 3d6,3d6.  overconfidence(-12),on the edge(-15).
Still thinks he can take 'em!
19:40, Today: D'aden Tor VIII rolled 16,10 using 3d6,2d6+2.  attack skeleton/damage.
but misses anyway

Olven brought down another two skeletons

D'aden attacked another skeleton, but missed.

Ochre delt with a skeleton.

The skeleton swung at Olven, but he blocked.

One Spectral Minion attacked D'aden, but he evaded.

The other spectral minion attacked Ochre, but it evaded too.

With a few more slashes, Olven Wolf chops first one, then another skeleton.  "Almost done!" he shouts, and turns his attention to the last skeleton.

OOC:  Close with last skeleton and attack it.

The combat had taken a toll on Roisin. She steeled herself and threw another fireball towards the spectral minion near D'aden, hoping that Ochre could remain apart from the minion chasing him. She sent waves of encouragement to the pseudodragon.
