In reply to Mario Crowfoot (msg # 217):
The noose catches instead on the hadle of an axe protruding from his shoulder. (Straight DX, -4 to target head, -2 due to protruding  weapons)


His footing is unsteady, and Brodak has him pinned to the wall. Numerous weapon handles are sticking out of him...

Re: Near the bone gate
Having a hold of the guy, Jareth tries to grab for a weapon handle.




OOC:  Attack, grabbing for a weapon handle.

17:11, Today: Jareth Mooncalled rolled 6 using 3d6.  Default Grab 10.

Narrator, Jareth was 'hit' by a weapon in msg #206 and failed to dodge in msg #211.  How much damage did it do and to what?

Re: Near the bone gate
Taking the opportunity, Mario pulls the loop tight on the axe handle, then tosses a bight over the opposite shoulder to get the rope behind the man.  He hands the rest of the coil off to Nodwin.  "There's a start.  See if you can't draw his legs together."

Once Nodwin has the rope, Mario jumps in to try to catch the wounded man's now-empty sword hand.

In reply to Jareth Mooncalled (msg # 220):

Jareth took a cut to the arm (2 points), and as a grip on the handle of a shortsword.

ST check to pull out

Mario hands Nodwin the rope, which is looped around the axehandle, and around the side he is looking to grab. It might be easier to grab the spear sticking out of him than his hand.

Re: Near the bone gate
Jareth lets go of the guy's wrist and firmly grasps the shortsword giving it his all...





OOC:  "Hey Akimbo, watch me pull a shortsword out of this guy's torso!"

"Oh Jareth, that trick never works."

18:25, Today: Jareth Mooncalled rolled 14 using 3d6.  Pulling out shortsword, ST 9

Mario, maneuvering around the rope, takes the opportunity to grab at the spear haft when it presents itself.

In reply to Mario Crowfoot (msg # 224):

Jareth still has a grip on the sword handle, but his tug made the wounded man twitch, causing the spear to dart out of Mario's hand.

Clarence has space to act, and nodwin has the rope tied to the axe handle.

Instead of attacking, the wounded man tries to reach for his sword...

Re: Near the bone gate
Jareth throws in with Brodak and tries to use the sword as leverage to help keep the wounded man pinned.

Re: Near the bone gate
Mario makes another grab for the spear shaft.  Seeing the wounded man's reach, he calls out "Someone grab his sword!"

Jocelyn sees the pinned man struggle for his word... she moves some nad chants, causing the sword to slide over next to her, but she does not touch it.

Re: Near the bone gate
Attempting to pull the axe handle further around, Nodwin's hands begin to slip. It is hard to hold onto with all the struggling going on.

Jocelyn looks at the sword, then again moves her hands and one foot as she mumbles something. A sparkly golden glow appears around the sword for a moment.

Nodwin lunges forward, desperate to firm up his grip. Grabbing it better, he attempts to carry it around to pin the man better.

In reply to Clarence Montague (msg # 236):

Clarence and Nodwin rip the axe out, and the wounded man starts bleeding heavily from the wound.

Mario yanks the spear free, and gouts of blood spew from it.

The sword that had been pried from its hand is magical.

Re: Near the bone gate
Mario discards the spear butt first in the same general direction as his staff, then steps back in to grab for the man's sword arm.

In reply to Jareth Mooncalled (msg # 240):

Mario gets an amazingly good grip on his wrist. The man is completely pinned.

The alien sorcerer leans over the weapon.
"There has been considerable enchantment here. Some typical enhancement, allowing for greater impact with the strike, and there was an enormous investment of power, now spent... wait, there is still something in one of the lesser jewels. Not as great as the other was, yet considerable."
