Landrin stayed close to the rear of the group keeping an eye out should this turn into an ambush.

The invisible trail Gorm follows appears to lead over a bridge ahead.

Morg keeps following Gorm, trying to get rid of any light sources along the way.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Perfectly comfortable navigating these wide bridges Gorm just keeps going, skipping over the water to pick up the trail on the other side where it is not as disguised by other scents.

Kaabo follows along as well, being sure to let the more physically-inclined members go in front of him for the inevitable ambush.

Landrin followed behind letting the others lead since they knew the layout better.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Makari frowned. Apparently no one cared about the other noises coming from the other way, but instead just wanted to follow the bear. He let out a sigh. He disliked being ignored, but he was used to it from growing up.

He shrugged and headed after the others, but kept glancing back occasionally.

Magdrak continues following the bear, though he occasionally glances back behind him at the room with the fountain.  "Hope the thing knows where it is going..."

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
As Gorm approaches the bridge, the remainder of the party follows closely behind. A twenty foot wide canal here leads between ancient masonry walls into darkness. The water moves sluggishly, indicating a weak current. Torchlight flickers in the distance, across the bridge.

With the bear's first steps onto the bridge, a freakishly tall form emerges from the water beneath the bridge. Its green skin is spotted with bulbous outgrowths that resemble barnacles, and black seaweed clings to its shoulders and limbs. Its hands are webbed between viscous looking claws, and the claws on its webbed feet scrape against the stone as it climbs up the stairs leading up to the far end of the bridge.

Baring grim, black teeth, it hollers at Gorm. [Language unknown:  "Ounvor-terersint redurewil an il proandame anitwe Stceut."]

Anyone who would like to can make a Nature or History check to identify the beast.

21:31, Today: Secret Roll: Kaabo Roulnar rolled 18,19 using d20+6,d20+4 with rolls of 12,15.  History & Nature.

Kaabo's eyes widened at the enormity of the creature as it stood up out of the water, "They call themselves Gorgebelly, and protect Sadie."

If Kaabo knows what it is, he relays relevant information to the party as well.

Kaabo is aware that Gorgebelly is some form of troll, and he shares this information with the rest of the group.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Seeing Landrin raising his weapon, the troll lets out a slurring growl. The sound blends a menacing reptilian gurgle with a baritone roar echoing off the slick wet stone walls of the cavern. Hurrying forward across the bridge, its webbed feet wetly slapping the stone, it rakes its claws towards the bear and snaps its jaws around her throat.

Everyone is up now. Technically Magdrak takes his turn before the Troll, so if something unexpected happens I'll retcon this post.

Round 1 So Far:

Troll moves across the bridge and attacks Gorm - HITS 2 twice with 2 claws for 18 slashing, CRITS with bite for 12 piercing (30 total) .

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Kaabo reached his right hand up to the bend in his left elbow and quickly ran it down to his wrist as if striking a match against his skin. As he did so, a jet of flames shout out from his left hand toward the troll.

Action: cast Fire Bolt
Result: Hit AC 22 for 11 Fire damage

18:05, Today: Secret Roll: Kaabo Roulnar rolled 22 using 1d20+07 with rolls of 15.  Fire Bolt.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Makari let out a sigh and tossed a disapproving glare at Landrin after they shot the creature. "always the violence." He shook his head but then the troll attacked Gorm and the frown on his face turned angry. "Don't hurt Gorm!"

He held his staff and pointed at the troll, muttering his arcane phrase as a pair of golden light energy streaked out to strike them.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Pounded on like a drum in the initial assault Gorm is visibly bashed up and bleeding from the assault. . . for a few moments, then she is suddenly unharmed as if an entirely new bear, although one that looks exactly the same, biting at one of the swinging limbs proves fruitless but the claws connect with the troll's legs leaving at least temporary cuts in its tough hide.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Magdrak grumbles as the battle starts.  "Could have picked a better spot to attack.  Gonna be tough to swing my axe from here."

He moves up the stairs, looking for a way to maneuver past the bear and the troll to get behind them.  When he spots an opening, he dashes through.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Gorgebelly lets loose another loud bellow, this time tinged with pain.

Seemingly split between guarding the bridge and charging after Kaabo, he finally renews his attacks against the bear.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Kaabo continued his fiery assault. He'd had no opportunity to prepare spells better suited for single targets, so mere cantrips was the best he could muster for now.

cast Fire Bolt, hit AC 20 for 16 Fire damage

22:46, Today: Kaabo Roulnar rolled 20,16 using d20+7,2d10.  Attack w/ Fire Bolt.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Makari stayed back a bit, weaving his head a bit, stepping this way or that so he could see better, even glancing behind him to make sure nothing and no one was coming up to flank them. He noted Gorm was getting hurt but held off on healing for the moment, as just a few moments before the bear had miraculously healed themselves it had looked like.

He uttered the same incantation once more, pointing his staff forward with a gesture and two more golden-green bolts flared out towards the troll.
