Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
"Haha awesome!" Mits cheers, "Grey render is now shishkabob'd charcoal render.  Hmm.  Novel uses for tail..."

A mitten appears at the tip of her tail and she flies around offering high-fives with it.  ^.~

This cavern also has an NPC, Macaebus, whom
the PCs can rescue. Macaebus is just a frightened
resident of the shantytown.

Mits releases him and the fortune teller chick from earlier starts getting him caught up on plot.

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
May, Rai and Tim all take the high-five. May does a little dance after.

Raichel gets to tying up the noble. Timothius gives the noble a nod. "So, what is your purpose here? And what do the blood channels do?"

May uses a pick to get the frozen blood out of the channel before it unfreezes.

Macaebus is here because he stole the last slice of cake when he promised he wouldn't. Or something.

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
Creatures
adjacent to a token at the start of their turn take 5
damage but score critical hits on 19-20 (unless their
critical chance is already better than that) until the
start of their next turn.

South Wall Mosaic: If blood in the channel
reaches the south wall, the eladrins in the picture
transform into tieflings and the landscape in the
mosaic transforms into a charred wasteland with a
magma lake. Note that if blood has flowed into the
channel then it will reach the wall before long unless
characters specifically take action to stop it

This cavern exists to punish those who’ve angered
Arantor, coerce betrayal from pawns in Arantor’s
schemes, and to provide a measure of cruel amusement during Arantor’s long periods of melancholy.

The rakshasa answers that he simply follows Arantor's orders in order to survive.  And answers the question about the blood channels.

"Sucks that I can't loot the mosaic.  Woulda made for an interesting souvenir."

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
Timothius looks at Mittens and says, "At this point, we can make our own version of that mosaic and have it change by something less sinister; like sunlight or moonlight."

May says, "And it will be in our AIRSHIP HEADQUARTERS!!!"

Raichel says, "Never will get over that... our very own airship."

  What, they couldn't afford the temperature color changing mug style mosaic instead?

POOF!  Mits' carpet now has airship themed trim!  "All aboard!  Wheee!"

Kas looks surprised by Kyle's comment but doesn't ask.

May, Rai and Tim hop aboard. May explains to Kas. "The Githyanki are a bunch of jerk-face puppy-kickers who use souls to fuel their airships."

Timothius says, "Not for long. Once we're done unraveling Tiamat's plan, I plan a return visit to Tu'narath with a request or two."

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
Kas ohs.

"Soul fuel!" the lych echoes with glee, "Brilliant!"

Mits rolls her eyes.  "Of course the lych loves the idea."

She flies her passengers to the next area.

When the PCs reach the cavern entrance, read:
This room is home to seven large statues, all larger than
life. Between them hang tattered tapestries that show maps
in sable, snow-cotton, and golden wool. A brazier near the
center statue—that of a dragon in a rampant pose—casts
everything in a reddish light.
Standing near the dragon statue are three cambions,
one with an iron-shod quarterstaff and two with short
swords and shields.
Two passages exit the room at the northeast corner.


Perception Check
DC 29: You hear flapping footsteps—not boots, but skin
on stone—coming from one of the northern passageways.


The silver dragon statue depicts Arantor as he
existed in life, and the other statues are figures
important to him

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
May telepaths to the group, "I do so enjoy my chance to get a surprise attack in. Shall we?"

Timothius 'paths, "If we initiate attack, no killing."

  Maybe Tim, maybe.  But at least Kyle won't kill hostages or useful informants just to spite you (and eat them).  Man we've got such a low bar to work with, it's great.

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
Timothius gives the Conflagrant memories of what this team has accomplished.

Raichel waves a hand, tossing May towards the enemy with her power over the winds!

May then roars, causing all the enemies to surround her and whacks them ALL! Her radiant weapon hurts extra on the legionaires, thanks to Mittens.


Tim surprise: Break the Spirit v Conflagrant. Hit(34)! (Thanks, CA!)
 dmg: 22
Rai surprise: Fly May into melee
May surprise: Come and Get It v Conflagrant, Legionaire1, 2. Hit(41)! Hit(46)! Hit(47)!
 dmg: 22 (only 9 dmg to Conflagrant)


Conflagrant HP: 166 - 22 - 9 = 135
Legionaire 1 HP: 171 - 22 = 149
Legionaire 2 HP: 171 - 22 = 149

Whoosh!  Swing!  The cambion tries to shield bash and swipe at May but cannot get past her defenses.

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
Timothius moves over to the cambions and bursts with radiance before causing chains to come up and snare the cambions. "No response. Either they don't understand our language, or they don't care about consequences. Neither would be surprising."


Move: To cambions
Minor: Solar Enemy (+5 vuln radiant)
Chains of Blazing Light v Con, Leg1,2. Hit(37)! Hit(42)! Hit(35)!

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
The confligrant tries to move away from May.  Whack!  Gets knocked down.

"Fine.  I'll light your friends on fire."

Fwoosh!  Timothius' aura throws off his aim just enough that the fireball misses!

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
One of the legionaires bursts with fire, lighting Timothius on fire!  Not that he's hurt any.  In fact, it hurt the other legionaire more.  SUCH BETRAYAL!

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
  Kyle fires a weak shot from his crossbow-oh hey that was actually pretty good. It's no MAYhem or Catperson Carnage, but 42 DMG from an At-will is pretty up there for the Artificer, so we'll take a not quite takedown where we can.

  That done, he steps up to make AoE targeting somewhat less convenient for the enemy.

M weapon buff: +2 Hit, +6 DMG rolls. Mittens, Raichel.
Conflagrant HP: 54-38-4= 3

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
"You guys are so weak, you don't even rank above a cantrip.  Oh!  Heheh..."

She puts her hands to her mouth to make a fart sound.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqcCVHB6dyY

Lasers shoot out from the statue's butt, burning the legionaries and downing the confligrant!  "Can Trip.  Teehee."

“Death to the interlopers!” shouts the lead giant as three of
the dark-skinned brutes lumber toward you. Next to them
is another of the metallic panther creatures you faced when
you last fought these giants.

Perception Check
DC 26: Four flickering, crystalline shards orbit each of
the giants at a distance of a few feet.


<Deep Speech>"Buh Blah!  Hehe."

A creepy cycloptic aberration all spikes, teeth, and claws hops into the room!  Then another one hops in, trying to look even more menacing.

<Deep Speech>"Aaaaaughibbrgubugbugrguburgle!  He he heh."

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
In response to the fart joke, Raichel says, "Ew?" all teenage-girl like, but fires lightning at one of the legionaires which bounces to the other one, downing both of them as their skeletons flash before everyone's eyes a few times before they collapse unconscious.

Raichel rounds the corner suddenly, now in raichu form. Her eyes and mouth are filled with dancing electricity and projecting light as she growls with a burning multi-voice. Lightning flies out from her, striking the nothics before Raichel whacks the nothics in their faces.

....she just wanted to show them how intimidation is done.


Lightning Strike v Leg1. Hit(35)!
 dmg: 62
 dmg to Leg 2: 38
Move: To Nothics!
ACTION POINT! 8 lightning dmg to 3 enemies in 5 squares
Intimidate: 32
Five Storms v Nothic1 and 2. Hit(32)! Hit(48)!
 dmg: 34


Leg 1 HP: 24 - 62 = DONE!
Leg 2 HP: 34 - 38 = DONE!
Nothic 1 HP: 180 - 8 - 34 = 138
Nothic 2 HP: 180 - 8 - 34 = 138

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
What Mitts said about cantrips is so true, not only did Raichel only use at-wills this past turn, but Timothius hasn't gone angelic yet. He giggles from Mitts' fart joke. And then the new guys arrive.

"Aaww?" Timothius mews. "Don't kill those two, Rai! They're cute! I wanna keep 'em!"

May grins over at the tag-along lich and shrugs with a grin. "Adventuring does things to your head."

He steps over to hug Raichel from behind, smiling brightly at the northics. "Make 'em vulnerable for me, Mitts? May can hold off the giants."

May thumbs-up. "You bet I can!"


Move: To Rai
Standard: Readied Shining Symbol for when Mittens makes the northics vulnerable to radiant.

Re: Scales of War: EPIC!
May rushes over to the giants, leaps into the air and SLAMS her carrikal into dreadguard 2! A crunch like cracking bone can be heard and a wave of energy shoots a breeze from the impact to brush across the other giants and their pet! May gets a wicked grin. In a low growl, May says, "Death to the interlopers... you must be referring to yourselves. Happy to oblige!"


Move: Double move to Dreadguard 2
ACTION POINT! Resist 10 all
Appalling Crunch v Dreadguard 2. Hit(47)!
 dmg: 34 and all enemies within 2 squares of Dreadguard 2 are marked.


Dreadguard 2 HP: 209 - 34 = 175
