Re: Day One: Muffled Oars
With un xpected speed the Chuul tcakle their prey, Nazarin goes down under the bleeding one, and Sly is cornered between the other, and the headless former smuggler. Horrible claws slice right through leather armor like wet parchment. Tunnel Runner blood begins to mingle with the lake of blood already covering the floor of the warehouse.

Re: Day One: Muffled Oars
Sensei winces at this show of carnage, but that is the only concession to weakness he allows himself. A wave of <i>something</> washes from his hand and surrounds Nazarin, washing over his wounds and stopping the bleeding, even as he springs over to Sly and touches the man, and enjoys a split second of satisfaction as his wounds knit as well.

He glares at the chuuls. "Come, uglies. Play with me, now."

Quick action to cast Heal on Nazarin--spend a recovery, Nazarin, and heal an extra 6 hp.
Action converts to Quick action to cast Cure Wounds on Sly--Sly gets a FREE RECOVERY and an extra 6 hp.

If one of the creatures hits Sensei and he is below 25 hp, he will use Roll with It to halve the damage.

Re: Day One: Muffled Oars
Roused by Sensei's healing touch, Galvar springs to his feet and stabs his blade into the headless smuggler. Before his enemies can react, Sly runs up the Chuul, kicking himself off its head to catch onto a support beam above them, and flips himself up into the rafters of the warehouse.

With a clear view of the carnage below, Sly reaches his free hand into his belt and pulls out a throwing dagger, looking for the right moment...

Sly is up to 29hp from the recovery, and deals 26 damage to the Chuulish Slave. He gains momentum, and immediately spends it to Swashbuckle and parkour his way up into the rafters, disengaging (with the intention that the Chuuls can't immediately re-engage him).

Sly Galvar rolled 29 using 4d8+9 with rolls of 7,1,7,5.  Recovery +6hp.
Sly Galvar rolled 24 using 1d20+11 with rolls of 13.  Tumbling Strike vs Slave AC 22.
Sly Galvar rolled 26 using 4d8+5 with rolls of 6,3,6,6.  Damage.

Re: Day One: Muffled Oars
Despite looking like overgrown crabs, Chuul are fiercely intelligent and seeing Sensei heal its prey the chuul scutters after the priest. Snapping at his limbs with huge claws, and chittering to attract the the headless corpse. The Slave staggers over and grabs Sensei from behind digging it's claws into his flesh, when a mass of writhing tentacles extends out of it's shell-like growths and shocks the shit out of the old man, causing him to slump in it's arms. Nazarin has almost killed the other when it charges him with it's dying fury and tries to take him out with itself.

Re: Day One: Muffled Oars
Sensai is, uncharacteristically, beginning to lose his cool. He swirls his hand and points at Nazarin, and something envelops him, closing more of his chuul-inflicted wounds.

He seems to rally a bit though still bleeding. "Concentrate fire and KILL SOMETHING," he begs his friends.

Quick action to use Invocation of Healing--gain one more use of Heal, which he uses on Nazarin. Nazarin heals using a FREE recovery and heals an additional 6 hp.

Then use my action to Rally, healing 18 hp.
10:58, Today: Sensei rolled 18 using 4d8+1, dropping the lowest dice only with rolls of 5,7,5,3.  Rally.

Re: Day One: Muffled Oars
Before any of the Tunnel Runners can react the Chuul and the headless drone tear
Sensei to pieces. A misshapen claw cuts into his arm and spiny legs trample over the old priest pinning him to the floor, before the large crushing foreclaws struck to the bone.

Re: Day One: Muffled Oars
Lady is not engaged at the start of this turn; Nazarin killed her opponent. But that's moot.

"Sensei!" Nazarin cries, and plunges his knife between chitin plates on his friend's killer.

Lady engages WC and hits for 4. Nazarin hits WC for 30, no bleeding. I have Momentum and I know how to use it.

Re: Day One: Muffled Oars
Galvar pales as he watches the sickening slaughter unfold, trying to ignore the emotions running through his head. He can't think about one of his best friends being brutally ripped apart down there, so soon after Tavia's own murder... not now, while he and Nazarin are fighting for their lives.

Seizing his moment, the pirate tosses a second dagger, stabbing clean through the heart of the Chuul drone.

"Nazarin!" he shouts, leaning over and holding down a hand to try and help Nazarin up into the warehouse rafters. "Up here!"

Chuulish Slave is dead. Sly gains momentum.

If Nazarin wants to try and make it up to the rafters, anything I can do to help him?

Sly Galvar rolled 23 using 1d20+15 with rolls of 8.  Flying Blade vs AC 22.

Re: Day One: Muffled Oars
With astonishing flexibility and speed the Chuul curls its body around like a lobster zipping away from prey, only instead its armor plates pull on Nazarin's blade and knock the pirate off balance. A huge claw grabs at Nazarin's leg and pulls him down towards snapping death! He squirms to avoid the sharp claws, but under the Chuul it is an abattoir of sharp crustacean limbs

"Over here, bastard!" Galvar snarls as the Chuul pulls Nazarin in, leaping from the rafters and stabbing his blade down through its plated hide. But even as his blow connects, Galvar realizes he's missed its vitals, and braces himself for another assault...

The Chuul's eye-stalks swivvel around in time to see Sly dropping from the rafters. Even as the Tunnel Runner drives his blade between the armor plating the Chuul reaches up and snaps a massive claw shut on Sly's arm like a vise, and shaking him violently.

Trying to wriggle out of the Chuul's grip, Galvar attempts another strike at the abomination, knowing it might be his last...

Sly uses Roll With It to halve the damage from the Chuul's last hit, which should put him at 19hp.
