You crit on 6, not 8. The tentacle is smashed against the edge off the pool.

With its other two attacking tentacles, the thing lifts the stunned Gaspard from the landing, and swings him around to the far side of the pool. You can see that his leg looks like it is being squeezed very hard.

As Margeaux weeps and Timeon reloads his crossbow, Frer Noe continues to chant. The air in front of him on the landing begins to shimmer... and there is a faint smell of ozone in the air.

Re: Two levels deep: Broderick's expedition continues
Broderick notes how the creature is holding Gaspard and thinks it moved him to where he is so that it can bite him. ooc does it look like the creatures torso is in that area? if so he'll inform the others to concentrate their attacks there. Directing Smasher to target the tentacle holding Gaspard, Broderick moves forward alongside Smasher. Broderick stabs at a different Tentacle to the one holding Gaspard.

In reply to Clair Leibert (msg # 126):

The swordsman crashes to the floor as smasher pulps the tentacle holding him.  A rather angry looking eye and a mouth lined with teeth form on the stump of the tentacle still wrapped around him. The other end of it disappears into the water.
Meanwhile the second tentacle wrapped on Gaspard's ankle has a hole in it... that looks the same all the way through, as if the thing was completely solid, and it retracts into the water, leaving the swordsman struggling with an apparent eel.

In reply to Smasher (msg # 130):

The thing, struck hard enough from above with Claire's missile, for it to set off a bit of thrashing in the water, wraps a tentacle around smasher's maul and yanks on it.

ST check to resist being disarmed!

Broderick stabbed at the tentacle that was attempting to wrestle Smashers Maul from him, just as the creatures tentacle was yanked out of the way by Smashers tug.

In reply to Smasher (msg # 132):

As a 17, that is a failure (a simple failure, not a crit, which would have knocked onto the ground as well), and the creature pulls away the maul. Smasher is nearly lifted off the ground as it does.

Re: Two levels deep: Broderick's expedition continues
Seeing the creature yank the Maul away from Smasher, Broderick directs Smasher to squish the Teethed portion that's attacking Gaspard. Broderick then stabs at the creature determined not to miss it this time. His rapier pierces the beast solidly

Clair steps forward and hurls her stone missile into the tentacled beast. Nodding in satisfaction at its flight and impact, which drove deeply into the creature.

In reply to Smasher (msg # 138):

Smasher punches the partial tentacle wrapped around Gaspard, who is doing poorly.

The rest of the beast retreats below the water, and to the back of the pool after being wounded.


[Private to Smasher:

Just looking over Smasher- were his $1500 (each) weapons accounted for in his cost? That is 6 points alone, and counts for the value, even if manufactured and not bought. Again, orichalcum is usually produced in a time consuming way; first essential earth with a 10x cost in fp, then shape earth with a 10x cost, (and an appropriate  armory roll)followed by earth to stone (metal) with a 10x cost. The first two spells might only cost 10fp each, which is doable, but earth to metal costs 30fp in this respect. Energy reserve and power items are useable, but it would take that and about 3-4 doses of paut.
It this happened off screen, it needs be paid for in points.

His armor (plate) costs $20k, or 40 points, the weapons 6 points, and the golem quite a few as well.

Re: Two levels deep: Broderick's expedition continues
In reply to Void brute (msg # 143):

Epilog:

The void brute rips out Frer Noe's throat, the pool creature staches hold
osf Smasher and pulls it into the pool, where it rusts immobile without someone to command it.
The void brute is struck by Claire's missile, and it turns and pursues her.
Broderick runs up the stairs to save her, both are killed, along with Carruthers, who tried to interpose himself between the creature and Claire. Phyliycity the sprite is eaten whole by the void brute.

Gaspard bleeds to death when Frer Noe's lend vitality spell wears off.

Timeon flees out the side door...and somewhere onto tne third level, where he eventually becomes part of a horde of zombies.

Margeaux runs away when she sees the void brute manifest, closing and chaining the door behind her. It never sees her, and Claude, the ghost of her dead husband guides her back to Ashbury's.

The young otyugh runs away, eventually finding its way back to the catchment room, where it locks itself in to be safe.


The curse that animated the zombies reanimates Clair, Gaspard, Carruthers, and Broderick as horde zombies; Frer Noe's devotion leaves him unraiseable as the unnameable thing he served consumes his soul.

The pool creature regenerates its lost limbs and retreats to the deeper pool when the torchieres burn out and the fountain resets...
