[1.05] The Ambassador's Secret
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.

Move to P6, Mage Armor on Alpha. Sorry about not posting earlier, I also thought we were doing this in initiative order.

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.

Figus manages a good solid hit with his scimitar, letting the blade sink in all the way up to the hilt into the creatures thorax before pulling it out. His attack with the mace and Alpha's attacks however are easily avoided.

09:18, Today: Figus Dva rolled 14 using 1d20+2 with rolls of 12.  Alpha.
09:17, Today: Figus Dva rolled 12 using 1d20+3 with rolls of 9.  Mace.

09:16, Today: Figus Dva rolled 23 using 1d20+3 with rolls of 20.  Scimitar.

For her part, Ayeesha stepped through the gap between the two abominations, then attacked the unwounded one.




Assuming Ettercap 1 is going down from those crits! Will start on number 2. Five foot step to N6 then hit AC 22 for 16.

16:15, Today: Ayeesha rolled 22 using 1d20+8 with rolls of 14.  power attack with destined strike.
16:16, Today: Ayeesha rolled 16 using 2d6+10 with rolls of 3,3.  power attack damage.

As nobody seems to need healing at the moment, Kyra pulls a card and throws it vaguely in the direction of one of the monsters.

Miss, because I'm shooting through occupied square and into melee.
00:25, Today: Kyra rolled 15,4 using 1d20+6,1d4+2 with rolls of 9,2.  Card throw (attack, damage).

Ayeesha slams her blade into the injured ettercap. It tried to dodge to the side but Ayeesha had somehow forseen it and was already adjusting her aim. Grayish blue ichor splatters Ayeesha and the pavement as she cleaves her way deep through the thing's head and into its chest.

Meanwhile Figus and Kraw lay into the other ettercap, cutting it down over and over and over again until they are gasping for breath and the ettercap is nothing more than a pile of ribboned gore at their feet.

The boy stops struggling and cries out in joyous surprise at his salvation.

"Hey! Hey over here! I'm stuck!"

He tries again to pull at the thick webbing that has both his legs pinned to the pavement but to no avail. The thick bonds are much to strong for the little urchin to break.

Now that they can focus the kid appears to be young, somewhere around seven or eight years old. He is dirty and scrawny and his clothes are mismatched rags.

Ayeesha took a moment to catch her breath as she came down from her bloodrage, shaking her hand to try to get some of the numbness out of it from the poison.

"Caught me with some poison. I think I shook it off, but I'll be a little clumsier than usual for a while I think."


She moved closer to the boy and tried to break the web. If that didn't work, she pulled her sword out and smiled, "Hold very still" She stuck her tongue out of the corner of her mouth in concentration and focused on cutting him free with her greatsword, taking care to miss him!




14:10, Today: Ayeesha rolled 12 using 1d20+3 with rolls of 9.  strength check break boy free of web.
14:11, Today: Ayeesha rolled 9 using 2d6+4 with rolls of 2,3.  if that doesn't work, damage to cut web.

With the spider creatures dead, Figus took the time to check over Alpha. Finding his best friend unhurt, Figus scratched her between the ears where the dog really liked it. "That will take days to heal. We may need to see a priest."

His next step is to check over the bodies. "Where the heck did these things even come from?"

"Can do little about poison, but I can heal the would at least." Kyra pulls out her wand and uses it to heal Ayeesha.

08:29, Today: Kyra rolled 5 using 1d8+1 with rolls of 4.  CLW wand.
Does Ayeesha stil need to make a saving throw against poison? If so, Kyra could also try a heal skill check to help with that roll.

Kraw says "Ayesha, didn't you do as I did? Swallowed down an Antitoxin before facing the Spider King? Well, I've got extra if they will do any good after the fact." Kraw offers.

Even as the poison burns through her veins Ayeesha tears away at the webs and frees the little boy.

"Thank you so much! Then name's Mouse. You know, as in a little mouse? I...I thought I was going to be eaten up by those spider things! Are you guys with the watch or are you adventurers? Or maybe Pathfinders? I heard about them once. Some old geezer was talking about how they have adventures and write stories about them. You think this might be a story some day?"


Meanwhile looking them over ettercaps none of them seem to have any valuables however it is known that fresh ettercap poison glands are worth a lot on the open market.

OOC: To harvest the gland is going to be a Survival check vs. DC 18. Up to two people can assist however a failed check ruins the gland.

Kyra looks over the child, but he looks alright to her. Or at least as well as a Korvosa urchin can. "Shouldn't you be somewhere safer instead of wandering around? These back alleys are not completely safe for a child at the best of times, and these are hardly good times."

Kyra can help by assisting with Survival check, but since she has a big fat 0 in Survival and only two can assist, it may be best she stays out of it. Unless others are even worse at it, of course.

Ayeesha raged while her body processed the poison and expelled it with the assistance of the anti-toxin. After the poison cleared, she worked with the others to try to harvest the poison glands.




OOC: Did Figus assist and can Ayeesha roll? I have +8 survival... If I can use Figus' +2 from assists we are successful 2/3 times.

15:43, Today: Ayeesha rolled 15,18,26 using 1d20+8,1d20+10,1d20+10 with rolls of 7,8,16.  survival, with assist on attempt 2 and 3.

15:40, Today: Ayeesha rolled 24 using 1d20+12 with rolls of 12.  poison save.

15:40, Today: Ayeesha rolled 19 using 1d20+12 with rolls of 7.  poison save.

Figus and Kraw do their best to guide Ayeesha. She was used to gutting game after a hunt but she figured the basic principles were the same. She learned quickly on the first one that the glands were much more delicate than deer guts but she took the time to study its location and how it was connected allowing her to cleanly remove them from the second and third bodies.

They would need to get to an apothecary or magic shop quickly so the organs could be properly preserved but two steaming fresh glands should fetch them a lot of money.

She lifted her prizes in triumph as they came out of the beasts. Not bad for a night's work. She had no idea what they'd fetch, but the satisfaction of extracting them herself was worth it alone.

"I say we rest, sell these and go talk to Cressida in the morning, hmm?"

The group found the nearest magic shop and the bespectacled gnome inside was quite eager to buy fresh ettercaps glands off of them. He tested the freshness and authenticity by licking the side of one of the glands and then when his tongue turned purple and swelled up to twice its side he grinned and slobbered out a thanks while handing over a bag with a thousand gold pieces in it for the pair.

"Huh, ettercap hunting seems to be a very profitable business." Kyra says as she weighs a fat bag of gold in her hand.

I'm ok with moving on. Maybe we will get a chance to spend all this cash after reporting in.
