Chapter 7: Miles before peace is found
ooc: Hahahaha! I forgot to tell you guys last time about where Elric and the mother witch were! They both took the main road, just in case you're wondering where they've been. ;P

The mummy is completely terrifying, and poor Bryon is rooted to her spot on the ceiling, unable to move a muscle. She just thanks the gods that she's invisible for now and, even better, out of the way. The very sight of the thing is enough to make your muscles quake. Fortunately, the rest of you have better luck, though only just barely. You're filled with dread and foreboding as the looming thing lunges towards you...

Meanwhile you see a familiar face from behind him. It's the motherwitch! Will you be able to take him or do you need me? she calls over the fray. We're losing allies over here and fast! Do you have this?!

ooc: I'm going to let Prizzard post his actual attack when he's ready. At which point I'll post the Mummy's attack. It's not going to be pretty...so if you'd like while you're waiting you can roll the next round in advance to save time. You too Prizzard. Roll the first attack like you were waiting to do (Prizz), then expect to be hit because you're extremely likely to be, and then roll the next round. Tanzy, I did roll your save and you made it. Feel free to roll an attack too or I can always do it since I know you're feeling crummy. Bryon, you can sit tight unfortunately, but if anyone has knowledge arcane they can roll to see how screwed you may or may not be and be able to react accordingly...Thanks guys! Good luck!

Bryon wished she wasn’ such a damned coward. She hung to the ceiling hoping she might be able to make herself move soon.

Raknesh fired a volley of holy arrows toward the mummy, definitively not liking the comment of the old witch.

Prizzard attacks the mummy with promising results, the mummy clearly feeling the fury of his blows. Unfortunately, the mummy strikes back twice, hitting Prizzard hard. Very hard. Worse, there is a terrible feeling as you are struck. You feel the life start to drain from you, as though rotting from within...


Meanwhile Tanzy stays away from the thing, deciding to attack some of the simpler soldiers that still swarm around you, stabbing with her rapiers and leaping back to safety as best she can. Raknesh's arrows hit true thankfully, further weakening the thing, but he's by no means finished...

ooc: Ok, next round! Sorry Bryon! You're still stuck but pretty soon you'll be back to normal.

OOC: I have to wonder just how much worse this would be without all the extra AC.

On the first slam, Prizzard releases a burst of magical electricity in retaliation, and with the second he growls, but it is not a growl of wrath, or of triumph, or of challenge. Still he throws all the weight of this form behind each attack, causing massive damage. The new form and combat style were already becoming natural to him.

Since she can do little more than poke holes at him Tanzy leaves the mummy to the heavy hitters and slips away in search of the throne room and Raina. She keeps to the shadows hopefully remaining unnoticed and wishing she’d been able to bring her gear with her when she died. She could really use her ring of invisibility right about now.

Raknesh continues his assault, praying it would be enough for them to win the race between Prizzard's life and the mummy's unlife.

Prizzard's first attack nearly kills the mummy then and there, but, driven by blind obedience, the mummy does one last slam before the arc of lightning finally turns him into a pile of smoking bandages. It hurts, but not nearly so much as before. Still, Prizzard is left considerably wounded. Ezran rushes to him, pulling him further into the hallway as she begins to heal him with a scowl of concentration. I'm trying to spare my healing for emergencies but I'd say this qualifies as one she mutters.

Meanwhile Tanzy successfully sneaks into the throne room, hiding in the shadows. She sees two things that alarm her. First, Raina, seated in the center of the room and tethered to the stone floor with chains. She looks pale and weak and exhausted. In front of her sits a white skinned man with long black hair, dressed in black with a black crown at his temples. You surmise this to be her father. The second distressing thing is the massive dark red skinned twelve foot demon holding a flaming whip at his side. Not. Great.

ooc: Ok, let me know your plans guys! You have a bit of a moment to address your plans. The main fray is starting to turn in favor of your side, especially with the motherwitch free to help them since Prizzard and Raknesh took care of the mummy. Bryon can finally move. I assume Tanzy will tell the others of what she sees? If you're going to do anymore healing I suggest you do it now before you go in. It's going to get interesting. If you decide to sneak in you'll need to roll appropriately, otherwise let me know your plans.

“It’s not looking promising in here...” Tanzy warns through the mind link. She quickly explains the situation but sits tight until they decide what to do next.

"Thank you, but there's little time to spend here." "Fire demon? Whatever it is, I'm on my way." Prizzard takes off toward Raknesh and the others, noting the location of Motherwitch along the way.

Raknesh stops Prizzard and takes an handfull of berries from his pouch.

"Not before you take those.  You are our frontline and we need you it as good shape as possible."

OOC:Raknesh still has 15 berries, 1D10/berry.
But he completely failed his knowledge(the planes) check ^^

Already planning to stop with Raknesh, it took little effort to slow him. Prizzards lightning paws would destroy the berries on contact, so he instead hunched and allowed them to be tossed into his bear maw, likely sporting bits of mummy cloth and dust. "For this final encounter I will be quite limited, but I think you will have the edge against demons. Hopefully I can keep them too busy to engage the rest of you."

Already rolled and applied 5 berries, but total dosage is up to Raknesh. Prizzard is not greedy about healing, often taking less than he should until more is offered, and would be quite understanding if Raknesh held onto most of them for the likely case of an ensuing emergency.

I'll go with you. Emric is by Prizzard's side. He's come in quite useful during the fray, turning many an enemy to stone with a touch. Ezran stays nearby, ready to bring up the rear. I can try to support you from afar but I'm saving as much of my abilities as I can for healing. Something tells me we'll need it. she sighs.

The motherwitch is still in the hallway, finishing off the soldiers along with the other fighters. It looks like things have turned your way there at least.

ooc: Ok, I'm going to give Tanzy a chance to come up with a plan before you go barging in there because it makes sense she'd at least try to suggest something (providing the player decides that's what she'd do). If Prizzard decides to ignore it that's fine of course, and she has no idea what she's actually dealing with. But a 12 foot tall demon with a spiky flaming whip and the king of death himself is a pretty good indicator that things should be handled with care.

Start thinking of your tactics if/when you do attack though, since I'm sure something is going to happen soon. If you do come up with a plan you can make your rolls accordingly, no need to wait on my say so. I'll try to check in on things to keep it all moving. Hopefully this all makes sense.

"Death is likely more dangerous than the demon. I feel we should hit as hard and fast as possible, freeing Raina as soon as convenient, and assume that escaping is quite unlikely."

"Take a few more berries in that case" begins Raknesh.

"We could strike with the big guns while someone invisible go and free Raina.


I can also fire one single arrow that would to straight to it's target, phasing through anything not magic, if it can be of some use. As a distraction, maybe, or anything else if you have an idea."

Bryon will move to a position in the furthest top corner of the room. From there she will be able to take siping shots as whichever come into her range.

As you all ready to go inside (save Tanzy of course who is already there) the motherwitch arrives, covered in blood that is clearly not her own. Trailing her is Emeric and of course Ezran is already there too. She gives Prizzard a hard, unreadable look, as though studying him for some reason.

Leave Damek to me. The rest of you get Raina and get out. He is never without protection and weak things that you are, you'll probably be killed if you try to take them. Whatever you do, stay out of my way. I can't be worried about accidentally killing you while I'm teaching my son a lesson.

With that she enters the room first and everything immediately goes to hell.

The darkly dressed man at his throne stands up in surprise. Mother! She ignores his words, immediately throwing a fireball the size of a house at the man. And thus their fight begins. For the rest of you though, you have your own worries as the demon Tanzy described very much sees you. Raina, looking weak and battered, looks up from her chains in shock. The demon's whip comes out, cracking eagerly, bits of flame falling off it constantly. Yes. This is bad.

ooc: Ok, I just got things started since it seemed like it was time. If you had any last second preparations you may go ahead and let me know. Otherwise, start your attacks! This is going to be harder than usual so don't be surprised if you actually miss from time to time...

Here's a basic map of the room, which is square and large.

It's a powerful creature, likely with access to magic. In a misguided effort to prevent spellcasting, Prizzard closes in and takes a swipe at it, missing terribly (natural 1).

OOC; I believe Prizzard should be higher on health as Raknesh forced him to take more berries

It was too bad Raknesh couldn't alter his mindblade on such short notice, but he fired his arrows as quickly as he could.

With the others engaged Tanzy moves to Raina’s side and gives the woman a quick hug before trying to free her. “I wish I had my regular tools,” She mutters as she concentrates on the restraints.

OOC: not sure what we’re dealing with so I did open lock and disable device and got 17 for each
