Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
Seeing the elf mumbling, Mannath piped up, "Riddles! I love riddles!" Hopefully when they had a moment he would get the chance to take a look.

For now he cut a length of material off the dead man's clothing and used it to bind a tourniquet around his arm. Hopefully it would delay any venom and allow him time to reach a healer.

Once he was done he headed upstairs after the others.

OOC - how many guards have accompanied Jafar?

Lady Carolina picked up an ornate letter opener in the room below, looks around and doesn't exitate to use that improvised weapon to attack the magic snake that is about to swallow somebody...
"Where is the Baron?"

Edit:

Please ignore the throw for the snake done in the dice roller as it has already been done (in next post).

Tarrian bursts out onto the rooftop, expecting to see the Baron.  Instead, she sees Elstarir locked in combat with a gigantic SNAKE!

Wordlessly she hurtles into the fray, slamming her spear right into the snake's body.

Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
Jafar burst through the trapdoor, scimitar glistening in one hand. He took one look at the huge serpent and swore. "By Sukh what vile wizardry is this?"

Then he went on the attack. As he slashed at the flanks of the snake he roared "For the Baron!"

Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
The GIANT SNAKE writhed in agony as blades plunged into it's body from all quarters. So violent were it's struggles that more than one of you struggles to keep your footing on the flagstones of the Tower roof, now stained dark with blood.

The monster might be dying but it is not dead yet. With an enraged hiss it darts out, trying to bite it's original tormentor in two.

The Giant Snake continues to attack Elstarir, who rolls to attack first. After Elstarir the order of attack goes: Lady Carolina, Tarrian and Captain Jafar.

Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
Finally reaching the roof, Mannath spied the giant serpent. Seeing hat the others were engaging it, and not wishing to get bitten again, he stayed back and skirted around the edge of the tower. The baron had to be around here somewhere, didn't he?

Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
Seeing the others rush out of the stair well Elstarir renewed his efforts and went back in for another attack.


OOC:
09:21, Today: Elstarir rolled 3 using 2d6. sword attack +8. = 11

09:22, Today: Elstarir rolled 6 using 2d6. snake attack +7. = 13
09:22, Today: Elstarir rolled 1 using 1d6. snake damage.  = 2


Elstarir stamina is now 9

But his relieve at seeing the others had gotten the better of him and in a moment of madness he opened himself up to another attack this time the fangs sunk into the fleshy part of his thigh and crying out in pain once again staggered away from the beast.

Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
Vithrain reached the next room, though even before he'd stepped foot inside his senses were hit with the pungeant smell of brimstone. He also heard the sound of battle from further up the tower.

Seeing the empty cage and the buckets Vithrain put two and two together and came up with the square root of Pi, accurate to 20 decimal places. "Ah-ha! Whatever is up there was down here, and the liquid is for use against it!"

As quick as he could he grabbed two of the buckets, tucking his staff under his armpit as he did so and made his way up the stairs.

Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
Tarrian was nearly yanked off her feet as the snake thrashed away from her to snap at Elstarir.  It was all she could do to hold onto the spear still embedded in the giant snake's monstrous trunk.  Blood spurted out all over her as she fought to keep both her weapon and her footing.

Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
Amazingly the GIANT SNAKE still lived despite the great number of opponents it faced. With a hiss of triumph it once more shot forward to try and swallow Elstarir whole, it's dim and violent mind obsessing over defeating this troublesome prey

GIANT SNAKE
SKILL 7 STAMINA 11 3

Armour: 0 0 0 0 1 1
Attack: 2 3 3 3 4 4


The Giant Snake continues to attack Elstarir, who rolls to attack first. After that attacks may proceed in any order though Vithrain may not attack this round (unless he throws a bucket at the snake) since he has both hands full.

Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
Vithrain places one of the buckets on the floor, letting his staff drop safely next to his foot, which he places partly on top to stop it rolling.

Using both hands Vithrain throws the first bucket of liquid over the snakes body.

Do I need to roll for this?

Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
Vithrain throws the contents of the bucket over the GIANT SNAKE... only to see it roll off the serpent's scales as ordinary water. The huge creature seems completely unharmed and is so intent on swallowing Elstarir it might not even have noticed the 'attack'.

Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
As The young Elf warrior went back in for an attack to try and finish the creature off he noticed out of the corner of his eye the image of his brother throwing a bucket of water over the snake.

He was so shocked at the action he faltered and left himself open. The snake whipped round at incredible speed and before anyone could react the Elf as swallowed whole.

OOC:
07:01, Today: Elstarir rolled 6 using 2d6. sword attack +8. = 14

07:01, Today: Elstarir rolled 9 using 2d6. snake attack +7 = 16.
07:02, Today: Elstarir rolled 6 using 1d6. snake damage.  = 4


Elstarir's stamina = 5

Tarrian clung to her spear as the giant snake lunged at Elstarir.  Dragged off-balance, she was unable to stop the monster swallowing the elf!  "No!"

Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
"Curses!" Vithrain mutters as the water sloshes harmlessly off the creatures' scales. "hmmmmmm.! Ahh! BARK! Of course! now lets see...." he mutters then shouts out.

vithrain knees down and grabs the handle of the bucket with his left hand and moves the staff so that it is laying across his now bent knee next to his stomach. He then mutters a few words while moving his right hand about in the air.

All of a sudden Vithrain, the bucket and the staff disappear.

Taking the now invisible staff into his right hand Vithrain stands up and moves around the other people on the roof. He heads over to stand directly in front of the beasts head, waits until its mouth is wide open in a hiss then throws the water and the bucket into its mouth.

Vithrain then moves over to where his brother lays against the parapet and kneels down. He places the end of his staff firmly against a raised edge of stone in the floor and points the other end towards the snake.

Concentrating he then places his now empty left hand on his brothers chest and mutters some words.

Elstarir disappears also.  Vithrain keeps his position and a hold of his brother and the staff to protect against the snake should it guess at their location.


Vithrain will move away from the spot where he threw the bucket from, and away from his friends and wait to see if the bucket of water has any affect. He will hold his staff up and ready to attack with it.


Roll one for invisibility on myself:
12:46, Today: Vithrain rolled 7 using 2d6. Cast Invisibility. T<=10.  PASS.
Roll two for invisibility on Elstarir:
12:52, Today: Vithrain rolled 7 using 2d6. Invisibility on brother. T=<10.  PASS.

Lady Carolina once more throws recklessly herself against the Giant Snake, but it is really difficult to harm such a beast with a letter opener as a weapon...
She keeps screaming loudly: "Where is the Baron!!!!"

Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
Captain Jafar takes his time to judge his blow as the GIANT SNAKE is busy being distracted by the invisible elf. When the moment is right he slips around and buries his scimitar into the back of the serpent's head.

The monster trashes horribly but the blow is a fatal one and it's great head falls to ground. The great reptile twitches spasmodically but there is no doubt it is dead.

Re: Scene One: Tower Trouble
As the serpent ceases it's death throws you set to work cutting Elstarir free from the monster's gullet. The elf emerges soaked in blood and semi concious from his horrific ordeal but still alive and after a few moments in the open air his eyelids flicker open as he comes to. The experience has left him with one lasting memento - Elstarir's hair has gone pure white!


As all of you are concetrating on reviving Elstarir you hear the distant sound of shouting from far below. It doesn't take long to see the cause - in the distance a strange marrow shaped airship is flying off into the wild blue yonder. It is only as your companion regains conciousness that he can fill you on the events he has witnessed.



OOC: Everyone who hasn't read them already read msg #68 and msg #74 in this thread. I'm assuming Elstarir fills you in what happened but we can cut the explanation scene itself.
