The Hellknight doesn't seemed phased by Kraw's assertion.

"If you are conducting business for the crown then there is no reason for you not to submit to a search."

OOC: It will require a social interaction roll to get around the search
Diplomacy DC 22
Intimidate DC 17
Bluff DC Varies (opposed by Sense Motive)

Kraw's outfit subtly alters with sharp deadly edges appearing. It bolsters his otherwise non-menacing look.


19:39, Today: Kraw rolled 11 using 1d20 with rolls of 11.  Aid another, DC 10.

Kyra does not try for the menacing look, she knows she's just not very good at it. But she does ask the spiky armored figure a question of her own. "Hang on, if you know Eel's End is a cesspool of crime and vice, and you have no problems with searching us just because you suspect us of being there, why don't you go search Eel's End instead? Wouldn’t that be a far better use of your time?"

The Hellknight shifts and the armigers give each other questioning looks. It is clear that Kyra hit upon a sore spot for Hellknight.

”We have...orders...to stay clear of Eel’s End. Apparently the leaders of the city feel that having scum and villainy contained is for the best so they are allowing this festering wound to continue. However that does mean it is up to us to diligently patrol to make sure no corruption escapes that wretched place. Everyone leaving there must be searched to make sure they are not spreading crime and vice. This is your second warning. Submit your bags for inspection or we will be forced to arrest you for resisting our command.”

The Hellknight drops his hand to the butt of his sword to press the point and the armigers shift, keeping their weight balanced and ready to spring in case the group decides to attack or flee.

OOC: Last chance for a roll. The clock is ticking so you’re going to have to decide if you’re going to flee, fight, submit, or negotiate your way around the checkpoint.

As tension raises Ayeesha casually flexes her giant tree-trunk muscles, her clothing designed to emphasize just how unnaturally strong she was. The Hellknight considered that and Kraw’s shifting stance and then looked back to the armigers. They were young, barely more than boys. Not nearly as seasoned of backup as one could ask for. The seconds ticked by as the Hellknight apparently did some mental math and seemed to come up with his side lacking.

”Very well then. Carry on citizens but know that the Order of the Nail is watching you. I will verify your employment with the guard, personally and if you are found fabricating lies then I shall make it my mission to hunt you down and bring you to justice. And when I do it will be.with a contingent of knights and Signifiers. Nowhere in the city will be safe for you from my wrath. Now go, begone from my sight.”

OOC: Oh look, you’ve made a friend :P

Kraw bows slightly. "As you wish. May I have your name? I wish to mention to the Field Marshal how cooperative the Hellknights were for this Important mission. We are heading to make our report right now."

She smiled at the man as he backed down, but resisted the urge to add more words. They were through, no point in piling on. As much as she wanted to.

The Hellknight continues to glower but sees no reason to withhold the information.

"I am Cursius, knight of the Order of the Nail. You would do well to mark that name. Now go make your report and I shall go make mine."

With that the Hellknight turned and the armigers flanking him fell into formation as they resumed their patrol around the perimeter of Eel's End.

"Nice folks," she commented to her companions after the knights had receded into the dark streets.

"Let's go see our patron as they suggest. I'm sure she'll be eager to hear from us."

As the group makes its way through Old Korvosa they hear the distant screams of a young child. Ducking through twisting corridors and winding alleyways they find the source of the cries, a small boy of about six years old is struggling to free himself from a tangle of webbing. From the shadows of the alley the group spies several bipedal figures swarming in. They seem equally comfortable walking on two legs or four as all four limbs are long and spindly ending with claws. They have pot bellied bodies covered in splotched brownish purple fur. They have long thin ears and giant multi-faceted eyes like an insect.

Figus reacts quickly ... hopefuly quickly enough to save the body. "Evil spider beings!" he utters before frusting out his hand and releasing a burst of magic that few would even suspect he could do, which should make it easier for his friends to spot the creatures.
Standard action: Cast Faerie Fire

21:50, Today: Figus Dva rolled 16 using 1d20+2 with rolls of 14.  Initiative .

OOC: Is the antitoxin we took earlier still in effect?

Kyra sighs wearily. This night just keeps getting better and better.

14:30, Today: Kyra rolled 13 using 1d20+6 with rolls of 7.  Initiative.

How far are these creatures from the child? I'm thinking of using shard gel to slow them down if they are not already on the kid, would that be possible? If yes, how hard would it be to lob one in a square right in front of them?

Ettercap #3 sees the party bearing down with weapons beared and unleases a web attack to slow them down. It tries to web Ayeesha but the giant woman dodges most of it and breaks through the rest that does hit her.

With three of the creatures about, Figus realized the the fight was going to ruff and the group was going to need all the help it could get, therefore Alpha would be needed. Figus tried to quickly feed it a potion, but the dog would have nothing to do with it and Figus finally gave in and sent it as is. Alpha moved up to the nearest ettercap and sank her teeth into the creature and attempted to pull it down.

Seeing the web, and expecting two more at least coming her way, Ayeesha wasted no time getting close up and personal before being restrained. She approached the closest monster, hoping to take one out quickly.




Rage, then move to O6 (O7 if I can't make O6 due to difficult terrain), attack ettercap there.


16:50, Today: Ayeesha rolled 24 using 1d20+8 with rolls of 16.  power attack with destined strike +1.
16:50, Today: Ayeesha rolled 18 using 2d6+10 with rolls of 5,3.  damage.

Ayeesha slashed a gigantic gaping wound into Ettercap #3. Grayish-blue blood splashed the pavement.

Alpha rushed forward, sinking its teeth into the Ettercap's leg and dragging it to the ground.

Kraw goes and hides.

Kyra steps forward and throws a card at the Ettercap on the roof drawing its attention.

The Ettercaps swarm over Ayeesha clawing and biting at her. The big barbarian swings her sword around to keep them at bay, smashing one in the face with her hilt while kicking back the other one.

As the fallen Ettercap scrambles to its feet Ayeesha takes its head off in one rage-fueled swing of her sword.

Ayeesha smashes another ettercap #2 with her sword causing massive damage to the abomination.

Figus moves up and slashes the other ettercap. Alpha continues to snap and snarl but doesn't do any damage.

One ettercap turns and bites and slashes at Figus but his expert footwork and mastery with the blade puts up a wall of defense and an elusive target and he parries and dodges the attacks.

The other ettercap slashes at Ayeesha with its claws which she blocks with her blade but it latches on and pulls her close savagely biting her arm. Her armor blocks most of it but the creature does draw a bit of blood.


Kraw leaps out of hiding but the creature just leaps back and out of range of Kraw's daggers and beak.

Kyra steps up and puts magical armor over Alpha. It whines a little at the glow around it.
