Berry claps. Then thinks. Then speaks. "Maybe I should always assume I need to blast if you guys are swinging? Unless its obviously a golem or something..."

In reply to Adept Yisslitheniss (msg # 668):

the uncounscous smoking body twitches when you stab it.

meanwhile, Haveron chops off the other arm of his opponent


there is nothing here to burn.  the floor looks to be adamantine like the rest of the tower, and there are no furnishings or ornamentation... or much lighting for that matter...


somewhere out in the outer darkness, you here a pair of growls like these had made... then the sounds of bloodletting!

Gareth maintains the spell to see if it does destroy the thing, checking the second body to see if it had any valuables when it stops attacking while the other decide what to do next.

Safwan waits briefly as Gareth loots the corpses, then resumes the ascent.

Was the noise we heard ahead, behind, or off in some other direction? Perception roll in log if needed.

the bodies were nude, the only possessions large crude clubs. As you approach the armless, Legless one that Haveton has been chopping up, it tries to bite you!


dodge or take 3 points cutting!

Roll in log. Fail, but my tough skin reduces the damage to 1 (unless you already accounted for that).

Gareth jumps back out of the way, belching flame as he does so. The burning death target still here? Spell is being maintained...

[Private to GM: Retreating dodge, 2 under dodge, breathe fire, 9 under skill, 4 damage. Still maintaining the burning death. This was not the same one, was it?]

Sure, happy for that. Wanted to see if it would finally get rid of it. Has the other one stopped moving, or does it need further destruction?

In reply to Amelia Montaigne (msg # 688):

Gareth once again casts a spell, in preparation for the upcoming fight.

He considers using it on the creature below him, but it can be dealt with later.

"Good idea Berry. I could use some healing before we get there." He says, as his staff takes a sickly red glow.

[Private to GM: Rolled a natural 3 to cast this spell!]
