Chapter Two: Dark Sun Rising

"So it sounds like most of you are going through the front door, with a few of us finding other ways in.  Any objections?"

Her hand twitched every so slightly across the smooth surface of her battle mask.

Chapter Two: Dark Sun Rising

Between Nyenna and Orson, getting to the warehouse and setting up takes little time at all, espically with no active guards on the outside.

It does appear to be a general warehouse on the docks and has no markings to dictate ownership to any particular family or house, but the quietness of the night and the cold air make things seem far more peculiar.

Chapter Two: Dark Sun Rising

Lilith concentrates for a moment, her glowing eyes narrowed before she's just gone. Where she stood is a cloud of pale mist that hovers, ignoring the wind, before it lengthens like a snake and moves for the roof of the warehouse.

Makaria rose up into the night sky, but didn't approach the warehouse yet.  She would wait and watch, and strike when the signal came.

Chapter Two: Dark Sun Rising

Markus loosens his steel shield from his back and says a prayer to their one true lord Asmodeus. "Lord of the 9, divine tyrant of flame. We do your will under your sky this night." The blackguard smashes his gauntlet into the ram's head carved into the front of the shield. "Worshipers of the false will burn in hellfire, as is your command Asmodeus!" He turns and salutes the black citadel before heading to the front door, warmace in hand.





After everyone gets into position I'll approach the front door.

Xul unshouldered his own heavy club, slinging it against his scaled shoulder in a ready position as he fell in step with Markus. The lizardnman shifted his head as he glanced around keeping an eye out for any sentries that might be watching the warehouse from the shadows before speaking, "Shall we knock?"

OOC:

01:16, Today: Xul rolled 11 using 1d20.  Perception.

Lilith floats to the top of the warehouse and starts looking for a way in, any tiny vent, crack, hole, or opening is sufficient for the vampire to gain entrance and give the fools within a very nasty surprise.

Orson moves to stand behind xul, his hand crossbow in his left hand and his Jian in his right. "Ready when you are, fellas." He says as he prepares to spring forward.

Chapter Two: Dark Sun Rising



On the roof there is a skylight that is currently closed but with a bit of effort could be opened from this side or even broken through if need be. Looking through it, those that have made their way up can see the a group of cultists in the middle of some sort of ritual and in the center of the ritual circle is a creature made entirely of fire.

There do not appear to be any sentries outside but a faint chanting can be heard from the other side of the door and the temperature rises the closer you fet towards the building itself now.

On quiet wings, Makaria flew just next to the skylight and waited for the signal, not daring to touch down on the roof with her heavy armored boots.

The mist that Lilith turned into floats next to Makaria, waiting for all hell to break loose in the warehouse. If mist could smile it would bear a vicious grin with lengthened fangs at the thought of the bloodshed to come.

Chapter Two: Dark Sun Rising

Xul gripped his vicious club in two hands and wound up, careful to avoid clocking Orson behind him as he swung full force against the warehouse door, bringing the weapon roughly against the surface of the door with one full swing and yelling out, "Knock knock!"


OOC:
07:28, Today: Xul rolled 22 using 1d20+5.  Knocking on a Door.
07:29, Today: Xul rolled 12 using 1d12+3.  Knock Knock.

Chapter Two: Dark Sun Rising

As Xul slams his maul into the door, there is the sound of wood splintering and breaking as he not only takes the door off of one of its hinges but also breaks the bar holding it shut behind it.

The cultists inside stop their chanting and turn to face the intruders; at their centre is a large humanoid creature made entirely of fire, it carries a large greatsword also alit with fire and it looks towards Xul "Burn the heretics! Purge them with our righteous flame! For the glory of Pelor!"

The cultists reach for their weapons and prepare to attack.

Roll for Initative Ladies and Gents. The cultists are 40 feet from those by the door and the roof is 60 feet from the ground for those on or above it.

There are also barrles, crates and shelving units that count as 1/2 or 3/4 cover that both sides can and will use.

Nyenna's eyebrows rise, though her confident smirk never leaves her face. "Quite," she says, drawing her pistols, "but v'course there's the sayin'... bigger they are, harder they fall."

And the more they burn, she adds to herself.


17:44, Today: Nyenna rolled 22 using 1d20+3.  Initiative.

Markus had been readying himself behind the doorway as Xul announced the party. The paladin focuses his innate sense of divinity to identify this flaming creature.

Nyenna twirls each of her guns around her trigger finger and fires as she steps into the warehouse, targeting the two cultists holding their own guns. Her eyes flash as the bullets strike their targets, and she darts for cover, making sure to stay a safe distance from the barrels of black powder. Playin' with fire 'round wooden barrels... seems the sun's still addled their brains.


14:15, Today: Nyenna rolled 21 using 1d20+5.  Bang.
14:18, Today: Nyenna rolled 9 using 1d10+3.  Flintlock pistol damage.
Let's make that a Called Shot to the leg: half speed next move action, Con save or fall prone.

Chapter Two: Dark Sun Rising

Xul growled and charged forward into the ware house, his yellowish eyes becoming bloodshot as a primal rage built up into his massive scaled form, his clawed feet propelling him towards the fiery guardian of the cultists and for the moment focusing on dodging between the weak meat that separated himself from the obviously powerful opponent...

OOC:
Charging forward to close on the central celestial foe, focusing on dodging attacks made by cultists and employing his barbarian rage...

Chapter Two: Dark Sun Rising

Orson watched as the others charged, then raised his crossbow, already glowing with a blue light. He moved into range and fired at one of the gun-wielding cultists, then moved behind the door of the warehouse for cover.

OOC:

Activate Crimson rite of the frozen (max HP is now 45)
Move 15 feet to be within normal hand crossbow range.
attack with hand crossbow on a gun cultist
08:54, Today: Orson Blackwall rolled 20 using 1d20+5.  Crossbow Attack roll.
, Today: Orson Blackwall rolled 9 using 1d6+3.  Crossbow damage.
08:55, Today: Orson Blackwall rolled 2 using 1d4.  Crimson rite damage.
So assuming that's a hit, 11 damage, 9 piercing and 2 cold.
