Timothius tosses a seal at the monster and it sticks. "Hmm... don't use anything too powerful yet until we know what we're dealing with. If one monster could hider, there is bound to be others."

  Kyle toughens up May, and then hurls a Crossbow high into the air above her.  It floats in place atop a sigil, as it fires a bolt into Uarion's leg across the room.

  "It's not going to be a comfortable rescue, if you don't stop trying to kill us."

OOC: Resistive for May. Daily crossbow summon, hits Urion once.

Raichel says, "True though your statement may be, Kyle, I doubt he has any say in the matter." She throws a punch accompanied by sounds of thunder and the destroyer gets an invisible right-hook to its jaw! WHAM!

Mits steps forward and blasts the elemental.

"Wild guess.  This is where the 'experiments' of Chillreaver mentioned by the giants are housed.  Inside these pillars."

Re: Scales of War: The Temple Between pt.2
May can see several large monsters approaching from the far end of the tunnel.

Another big monster breaks free!  It tramples Rai, Kyle, and Timothius!  A smaller wind elemental breaks free from a pillar and attacks May, but misses.

"The Seed is all!  You must surrender yourselves to its will!"

Uarion blasts at May but misses!

Re: Scales of War: The Temple Between pt.2
  Kyle considers getting up, but then he can still let all his weapons do all the work for him from the floor anyways.

  The long unused tension wheel in the flying crossbow flashes as it expends it's arcane charge, firing three crossbow bolts so quickly they are touching eachother.

  Urion gets shot in his other leg so hard he front flips twice before crashing face first into the ice, which mocks his Cold resistance with blunt trauma.

  ...Uh, Nice rescue Kyle?

  The artificer sees the Umber hulks coming, and summons the spring unibrowed eye of disapproval to overlook the battle.

  "Right, Umber hulks. Tough as they look and also dizzying psychic gaze JUST BECAUSE."

Re: Scales of War: The Temple Between pt.2
"Thanks, Kyle," Mits says.

She steps down and pulls a Vegeta vs Buu style point-blank nuke!  Two elementals are destroyed, one of which explodes in fire!

Sure enough, the umber hulks appear and daze both Mittens and May!

Re: Scales of War: The Temple Between pt.2

Re: Scales of War: The Temple Between pt.2
Timothius walks closer to the hulks and waves a hand to Mittens, nearly taking her back to full health. "Thanks for silencing him, Kyle. That could have gotten annoying." He tosses a white ball of fire at the nearest hulk, but it dodges.

Re: Scales of War: The Temple Between pt.2
Even as Tim was healing Mittens, Raichel DARTS to suddenly be in front of Mittens in a shielding fashion, stomps and lightning dances all over her before a bolt shoots from her to the hulk. But this hulk took lessons from a walrus apparently and dodges the lightning bolt.

  Kyle... Is still too busy using his actions for other things to stand up.

  Eyeball moves slightly, May gets toughened up again, and most of the Umber Hulks get pacification dust all over them, We Forgot To Add A Novelty Smell edition.

  The eyeball looks on.

"I remember the days when I would spend quite a bit of time in excruciating pain.  Thanks for the heal, bro!"

Zap!  She backs up, shoots at three, but only hits one.  Then the umber hulks do their mind woogie, drawing the kitties closer!  One then chomps May!

Re: Scales of War: The Temple Between pt.2
"No... problem..." Timothius says before shaking off the daze effect.

Timothius pulls out a radiant coin purse and opens it. Blood can be seen flying from the umber hulks towards the coin purse! Timothius then bursts with radiance, causing two of the hulks to feel especially vulnerable. He then holds up a holy symbol, devastating the hulks with radiance while the culmination of Kyle's disappointment in all enemies' unprofessionalism is given via the eye in the sky.

He then steps back deftly.

Re: Scales of War: The Temple Between pt.2
"I remember when our enemies spent quite a bit of time in pain too..." Raichel turns into a lightning bolt and ZAPS right through the enemy, winding up on the other side of the room, hiding behind them. The zap hurts them BAD and the flying eye glares at ALL of them in lazy disappointment. Was that a sigh and a tisk? Anyone's guess. "Now we just stomp them fast."

Re: Scales of War: The Temple Between pt.2
  Kyle finally stands up, and hurls a jar of acidic fire (The best of both burning worlds) amidst the Umber hulks.  They are so large that only most of them get splashed with it, but thanks to the combined effects of Timothius's Divine Emo and Kyle's Artificer disdain, it burns real good.

Umber 1: 92-23= 69
Umber 2: 176-25= 151
Umber 3: 101-27= 74
And 16 Ongoing Acid DMG for them all

Re: Scales of War: The Temple Between pt.2
The enemies roar from the onslaught!  Mits stares wide-eyed at how quickly these terrors of the deep are being shredded.

"Sheesh.  Fast is right.  Mittens liked her allies attacks so much, she tries for a reprise."

Mits tosses a zappy coin purse full of burning honey at the enemy, splashing them!

"Sweet!"

An umber hulk turns on Rai, slashing her!  Several mind-woogie, but only May is affected.  Another closes in on Timo, grabbing him in its crushing mandibles!  One slashes May and another circles around to grab her!

May swings and hits only exoskeleton. "Pay atTentIon hEre, you bAd beEtles!"

Timothius is still collecting their blood. "We can get away with this because of the nice ritual given to us by Bejam. We'll be sure to thank him when we return."

Raichel then shoots a lightning bolt 5' in diameter at the hulk to the south, making the thing go into some nasty convulsions. Those muscles are going to ache for the next week or two.

Another stray lightning bolt that misses.


May takes 10 dmg. May uses Funneling Flurry and misses, but marks H1 and H3
Mayving throw: 14 success
Tim takes 10 dmg. Tim uses Chains of Blazing Light v H1,3,4. Miss(24) Hit(33)! Hit(28)!

Re: Scales of War: The Temple Between pt.2
  Kyle's floating Crossbow drops the two Umberhulks still within the effective range of the eye, while the remaining one's head drops off it's shoulders as the acid leaves nothing but it's exoskeleton behind.

  "Wait at least ten minute before wearing their skull as a helmet, May." Somewhere, Maverick probably wishes he was in this party thanks to that comment.

"Crossbows are so cool!"

She pulls out a magical crossbow and finishes off the last enemy!

"Whew!  That was wild!"

She gets to helping with tying up enemies.

Re: Scales of War: The Temple Between pt.2
May pffs. "Big as those things are, I would be wearing its head as torso armor instead. But it's the wrong shape. Thanks for the thought. Still, I'll be happy to take some kind of trophies if this place doesn't collapse from defeating Chillreaver." She goes to tie up Uarion, then flops to her butt and leans against a pillar.

Timothius sits and heals up. The others are not hurt enough for him to bother healing. He opens the money bag as the blood stops flowing and pulls out what looks like coins made of solidified blood and drops them back in, making a jingling sound. The coin purse vanishes. "Hopefully, we will find and defeat Chillreaver soon. But we will definitely need to rest before we face him at this rate. We all kinda pulled a lot of our more powerful stuff out already."

Raichel nods and rests.
