"Help me with it's beak, have to cut out it's tongue or it'll come back to life."

Stenet will then proceed to lever its beak open and cut out the tongue...


OOC:  Does it have any valuable parts?  Not sure what skill you want rolled.

20:14, Today: Stenet Fjall rolled 11 using 3d6.  Identifying valuable bits on the Hellwalker.

Demon physiology, or dungeon butcher.

Not yet dead, merely crippled, it snaps at Stenet's hand- dodge or take 11 points cutting to the hand!

Re: Temple Hill
He steps over a watches quizzically as Stenet messes with the birds beak... Maybe if I make dead!

Heb raises the sword overhead and strikes at the Birds Neck.

Re: Temple Hill
In reply to Urrun (msg # 624):

As previously described, this creature has no neck. Additionally, grappling its head is a trifle difficult, as it is SM+4, making the head roughly 8 feet accross, and the beak over a yard accross.
Fortunately,  it is feathered, and Stenet is holding on to that.

Given the absence of a neck, is Urrun strining at the head or the torso?
The feathers are dense, but no where as dense as the scales.

So if there is no neck, Hograth will aim more at the head itself...

Re: Temple Hill
"WATCH MY ARM!"

Stenet shouts as he holds on and tries to twist his shield and force the beak open...


OOC:  Um... call it a Limb Lock?  Attack Maneuver, Beak Lock.

23:16, Today: Stenet Fjall rolled 10 using 3d6.  Wrestling 16, attempting a Beak Lock. (Skill 14 + 2 HP (Slay Demons))

In reply to Goran the Marked (msg # 633):

Goran wraps the chain of the flail around his wrist, it will take an extra turn to ready it.

Urrun's cleave into the shoulder sprays the area with ichor.

Stenet pries open the beak, giving someone ac"ess to the tongue, but it shreiks right at him, causing 9 sonic damage without a HT roll, and temporarily deafens him.

Re: Temple Hill
Goran swings with extreme determination at the leg in front of him, with a small tear in the corner of his eye.  Everything about this creature was wrong, and evil.  The situation reminded him too much of his home, and of the people that were killed there.  He had not been strong enough to defend them.  Watching the witches try to defend this land from the creature pulled at his heart strings.

In this moment, Goran finds that the peacefulness of Hors had not yet permeated through his character.  His emotional response has led him to try just a little too hard in his fight with the creature.  When the beast suddenly crashes to the ground, Goran discovers that he had leaned into the swing far too much.  suddenly the leg he was aiming for was not there, and he was way off balance.

As the chain from his morning star wraps itself around his waist, Goran practically erupts with frustration!  "BY HORS!  THIS ADVENTURE HAS BEEN CURSED FROM THE BEGINNING!  BEGONE YOU FOUL CREATURE!!!"

OOC Goran will take a round or two to untangle himself from his weapon.

Re: Temple Hill
Stenet shakes his head and shouts "CUT OUT THE TONGUE!"


OOC:  Hit Location?  Large Area Damage?  Or does it bypass armor altogether?

Need see if I'm making a HT roll for Knockdown or not...

In reply to Stenet Fjall (msg # 638):

"What the hell are you doing? Grappling it before it is disabled is only protecting the thing! Let us hack it a bit first!"

He holds his attack until Stenet gets out of the way.

(Same attack as before, I guess, as he still has not done it?)

Re: Temple Hill
OOC  Unsure of general placement.  How it exists in my mind may or may not be accurate.  If he's in the way of Hograth, he'll move.

In reply to Hograth Podkarmen (msg # 639):

The creature is down but writhing. It has taken enough damage to fell something this size...

The shriek is area damage, primary DR affects it.


The tongue is -3 for size.

Narrator:

OOC:  Okay, so an Area attack, but not Large Area Damage.  Stenet is is "fine", realing, but not having to make KnockDown/Stun rolls for a Major Wound as he only takes 6 injury after DR, not 7 or more...
