Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
DAI grumbles. "It means that they're likely the victims here. The true king eh? Wonder what that could mean...Either way, anyone wanna help me run back and get a sample back? If nothing else I can be pretty quick if I want to be."

OOC: Fast would last 7 rounds, so I could easily zoom in, grab a sample, then hustle myself back to camp.

I assume you're kidding. One hit from those things and you froze like an ice cube. They'd eat you alive, and there'd be nothing we could do to stop them.

"They're also not that fast, and it took a while for more of them to surface. If I can find out what that lake's made of it might help understand those things." DAI looks back toward the body of water, now curious what these things were.

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
Leo sighs. Alright, I'll come along. I might be able to slow them down, should things go wrong. Perhaps while we're gone, our companions will break camp for the night?

Leo removes his breastplate and leaves all of his equipment behind save for his gloves and rapier.

I figure I'll travel light.

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
ZEIG does a literal face-palm. If you're serious, he will cast Protect on each of you, though he suggests that it might be better to leave the lake be for the night... or forever.

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
"It'll be a few seconds tops, I just have to zip down, get the tools and another sample, and dash back." DAI holds out his longbow to LEO. "Know how to use this? It may work better as far as covering fire goes."

OOC: DAI has some normal arrows, and 10 Lightning Arrows, if you use the bow.

As for how this goes, I figure DAI will make his way to the lake, get the gear and sample, then Fast and immediately turn back. At that point a double move is 120 ft. If something is getting really close I can even cast it as the swift version first.

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
Leo politely declines the bow.

If you're as fast as you say you are, covering fire will be unnecessary. Plus, I'm not very good with those things...

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
Jack shakes his head. If you're serious, I should be the one to go. Grim and Zeig stay here, Leo, you move about halfway down so you're ready to assist either group. I hope you know this is a bad idea.

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
"Of course it is, but what are friends for?" DAI points down toward the lake. "Now, there's where I left the tools, just in case maybe you should bring another set of calippers and something to store it in, if looking for it is too...time consuming." DAI gets another set of whatever he all had down at the lake, and hands it to JACK.

JACK psyches himself up. ZEIG looks at him with tired disbelief.

ZEIG casts Protectra. (+2) (MP: 37/53)

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
JACK's careful walk down to the water's edge is uneventful. The sun has nearly set, and the water is clearly still glowing. JACK, following the trails in the grass, sees the site of the previous scuffle up ahead.

Choose what you'd like to do. If you move any closer to the lake, roll initiative.

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
As you begin to move towards the lake, you see four of the creatures stand up from the water 10 to 15' out from the edge. They then walk onto the land.

Didn't auto-take your turn with your instructions in case you wanted to do something differently.

Round 1:
21: 1,2,3,4

Six more creatures stand up from the water and make their way onto shore. Now that it is darker outside, JACK notices that they put off a small amount of blue light of their own.

12:39, Today: teslas rolled 8 using 1d20+5. #2 charge attack.

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
Jack flips over the creature in front of him and snatches up the vial. (Move 3 squares forward)

13:46, Today: JACK rolled 24 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 10. Tumble (#3, DC 17).
13:46, Today: JACK rolled 26 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 12. Tumble (#1, DC 15).
13:45, Today: JACK rolled 26 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 12. Tumble (#2, DC 25).


GM Edit-
DC 25 for the one you're moving through, DC 17 and 19 for the other two. You're still good, just wanted to make that clear.

I'm going to go nap before a meeting. The conclusion of this episode when we return!

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
JACK gracefully weaves in between the creatures straight to the vial. He bends down to pick it up, and #5 attempts to bite him as he does so, but horrendously misjudges the distance.
15:47, Today: teslas rolled 4 using 1d20+3. #5 Bite AoO vs. JACK.

#5 then attempts to claw and bite JACK, only connecting with one lucky claw swipe.
15:49, Today: teslas rolled 3 using 1d3+1. claw 2 damage.
15:49, Today: teslas rolled 12 using 1d20+1. claw 2 crit confirm.
15:49, Today: teslas rolled 21 using 1d20+1. #5 claw 2 vs. JACK.
15:49, Today: teslas rolled 3 using 1d20+1. #5 claw 1 vs. JACK.
15:48, Today: teslas rolled 19 using 1d20+3. #5 bite vs. JACK.

JACK Feels the site of the wound tingle.
15:50, Today: teslas, on behalf of JACK, rolled 18 using 1d20+11. DC 12 Fortitude.

#6 dashes straight at him, maw open wide, but ZEIG's protective magic deflects its teeth from piercing JACK's skin.
15:52, Today: teslas rolled 18 using 1d20+5. #6 bite charge attack.

JACK continues his evasive moves as both #7 and #8 run up and fail to bite him.
15:53, Today: teslas rolled 5 using 1d20+3. #7 bite.
15:53, Today: teslas rolled 8 using 1d20+3. #8 bite vs. JACK.


#9 is emitting a putrid stench the same as encountered before, but JACK has already become accustomed to it. It takes a 5' step and sends two claws and its fangs his way.
15:55, Today: teslas rolled 20 using 1d20+3. #9 claw 2.
15:55, Today: teslas rolled 10 using 1d20+3. #9 claw 1.
15:55, Today: teslas rolled 18 using 1d20+5. #9 bite vs JACK.
15:55, Today: teslas rolled 3 using 1d4+1. claw 2 damage.

The small wound this one's claw leaves tingles a little more than the previous one, but JACK easily shakes it off.
15:56, Today: teslas, on behalf of JACK, rolled 31 using 1d20+11. DC 15 Fortitude.

#0 circles around and continues the theme of biting at nothing and screaming.
15:57, Today: teslas rolled 18 using 1d20+5. #0 bite.

#1 charges at JACK, missing him amidst all the flailing claws.
15:58, Today: teslas rolled 6 using 1d20+5. #1 charge bite.

#2 circles around and bites him on the wrist.
15:58, Today: teslas rolled 20 using 1d20+3. #2 bite.
15:59, Today: teslas rolled 3 using 1d6+2. damage.

The wound site tingles almost all the way up his arm, but JACK remains mobile.
15:59, Today: teslas, on behalf of JACK, rolled 13 using 1d20+11. DC 12 Fortitude.

#4 and #3, unable to reach him, run up behind their allies.

The water within 100' of JACK stops glowing and a myriad of little blue concentrations of light can be seen underneath its surface, slowly coming ashore.

Round 3:
21: 1,2,3,4
16: JACK
16: 5,6,7,8
 6: 9,0

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
Everyone else watching from the tree line can see JACK become surrounded. Though JACK is obscured from sight, you can tell there's still something very active in the center of the mess.

If you'd like to roll initiative, and start running toward the lake, roll it, and I'll put you in where appropriate.

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
Jack takes a total defense action and does his best to go over #5, but fails. (My AC is 26). #2, 5, 7, 8, and 9 get AoO against him.

17:24, Today: JACK rolled 25 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 11. DC 29 vs #9.
17:23, Today: JACK rolled 23 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 9. DC 27 vs #8.

17:23, Today: JACK rolled 34 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 20. DC 23 vs #6.
17:22, Today: JACK rolled 20 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 6. DC 21 vs #2.
17:22, Today: JACK rolled 29 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 15. DC 19 vs #1.
17:22, Today: JACK rolled 26 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 12. DC 17 vs #0.

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
You didn't move, the tumble fails before you enter the square, so only #5 gets an AoO against you.

#5 bats JACK away as he attempts to do a cartwheel past it.
16:28, Today: teslas rolled 20 using 1d20+3. #5 claw AoO vs. JACK.

Every creature around JACK attempts to claw and bite him furiously. I hate you :| Going to be a little unceremonious here, and just roll them in order.

#1
16:31, Today: teslas rolled 7 using 1d6+2. bite damage.
16:30, Today: teslas rolled 6 using 1d20. crit fumble confirm.
16:30, Today: teslas rolled 1 using 1d20. claw 2.
16:30, Today: teslas rolled 11 using 1d20. claw 1 (nat 20 needed).
16:30, Today: teslas rolled 13 using 1d20+5. crit confirm, go double nat 20!
16:30, Today: teslas rolled 25 using 1d20+5. #1 bite flanking vs JACK.

16:31, Today: teslas, on behalf of JACK, rolled 16 using 1d20+11. DC 12 Fortitude.

#2
16:32, Today: teslas rolled 16 using 1d20. #2 claw 2.
16:32, Today: teslas rolled 14 using 1d20. #2 claw 1.
16:32, Today: teslas rolled 8 using 1d20. #2 bite (nat 20 needed).


#5
16:33, Today: teslas rolled 11 using 1d20. #5 claw 2.
16:33, Today: teslas rolled 2 using 1d20. #5 claw 1.
16:33, Today: teslas rolled 3 using 1d20. #5 bite (nat 20 needed).


#6
16:33, Today: teslas rolled 6 using 1d20. #6 claw 2.
16:33, Today: teslas rolled 12 using 1d20. #6 claw 1.
16:33, Today: teslas rolled 16 using 1d20. #6 bite (same deal).


#7
16:34, Today: teslas rolled 16 using 1d20. #7 claw 2.
16:34, Today: teslas rolled 11 using 1d20. #7 claw 1.

16:35, Today: teslas rolled 10 using 1d20+5. #9 claw 1.
16:35, Today: teslas rolled 23 using 1d20+7. #9 bite.

16:35, Today: teslas rolled 10 using 1d20+7. #0 claw 2.
16:35, Today: teslas rolled 20 using 1d20+7. #0 claw 1.
16:35, Today: teslas rolled 16 using 1d20+7. #0 bite.


#3 and #4 stay where they are, screaming at JACK in some unrecognizable tongue to him.

The first set of five blue lights in the water draw closer, glowing brighter and brighter as they do. They are now only 45' away from the shore. The lake out to about 150' away from JACK has grown dark.

Six more ghouls and ghasts stand up in a jerking motion from underneath the lake's surface near JACK.

Round 4:
21: 1,2,3,4
19: a,b,c,d
18: z,y
16: JACK    - Focus 1x
16: 5,6,7,8
 6: 9,0

Re: Chapter 3-B: Across the Aldi and Into The Forgotten Deeps
Jack tries again (total defense, AC 26). #2, #6, #7 and #9 get AoO's. Once he's past all of the creatures (I think it will takr 6 squares of movement to go 3 squares) He'll move right two squares.

23:18, Today: JACK rolled 24 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 10. DC 29 vs #9.
23:17, Today: JACK rolled 34 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 20. DC 27 vs #8.
23:17, Today: JACK rolled 25 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 11. DC 25 vs #7.
23:17, Today: JACK rolled 18 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 4. DC 23 vs #6.
23:16, Today: JACK rolled 19 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 5. DC 21 vs #2.
23:16, Today: JACK rolled 21 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 7. DC 19 vs #1.
23:16, Today: JACK rolled 20 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 6. DC 17 vs #0.
23:15, Today: JACK rolled 31 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 17. DC 25 vs #5.


You seemed to say that I need to make more checks. I can't find the rules that say that I have to (to me it says I have to make one check against each foe I tumble past. It says half speed, so it seems to imply that this is for the entire movement, otherwise it would say something like "2 squares for every one you go through").
