TURN 3
Acolyte 1 attempts to return a slash at Iro. Pathetic.
00:48, Today: Dungeon Master rolled 8 using 1d20+2.  Acolyte 1 attack roll.

Acolyte 2 lurches forward and unstick Shiaran's blade from his back, and spins to cut her. In a screaming rage he stabs wildly and connects with Shiaran's collar [6 DMG]. Shiaran is able to twist away just enough that the dagger doesn't go in straight down, and doesn't get buried to it's hilt

00:49, Today: Dungeon Master rolled 23 using 1d20+3.  Acolyte 2 attack roll.
00:51, Today: Dungeon Master rolled 8 using 1d20+3.  Acolyte 2 Crit Confirm.
00:52, Today: Dungeon Master rolled 6 using 1d4+2.  Acolyte 2 Damage .


Acolyte 3 raises his dagger and takes on a defensive posture, if you could even call it that.

TURN 3
Seeing the way down isn't quite clear, the lone figure sliding down grips tight the chains and slows to a halt, hanging 20 foot above the deck, watching. He wears clothing similar to that of the acolytes, but similar to Oro's choice of outfit, glints of metal peak out from underneath his loose fitting outerwear. "Fight on you failures, be worthy of our Death Matron!" he calls down to the acolytes. His hood is up, but it's clear to see his hair and mustache are grey.

TURN 2: Attack of Opporunity
Sensing a body encroaching a bit too close, Beloc tosses the scimitar in the air with a slight rotation enabling him to reverse his grip. Once back under his control, he thrusts the blade behind him in an attempt to impale the acolyte.

07:28, Today: Beloc S'Viscus rolled 17 using 1d20+6.  AoO on acolyte 7.
07:48, Today: Beloc S'Viscus rolled 5 using 1d6+3.  Damage on acolyte 7.

TURN 3
Shiaran winces in pain, but maintains her focus on her opponent.  Again she makes a surgical strike.  It hits, but deals little initial damage.  Shiaran smirks with contempt as the blade ignites in a cool, blue flame.

[Private to GM: Shiaran takes 10 for a total of 15.
Shiaran does 2 blade damage and 6 cold damage for a total of 8 damage.
]

DM EDIt - Shiaran's blades scores a searing lines across acolyte 2's chest. The cold fire near instantly freezes whatever blood would have escaped from the wound. Acolyte 2 drops down to his knees and slumps forward. - Acolyte 2 is out of the fight

"Just need to --" Iro is interrupted by a stab that he dodges neatly. "--Get passed these guys! Iro then throws his elbow into the face of the acolyte still facinging him.

TURN 3
With the blade still impaling the acolyte behind him, he drops his elbow to right his grip. In a single motion he pulls the blade out and slashes out toward the acolyte in front of him. A trail a blood follows his weapon like a tracer.

19:44, Today: Beloc S'Viscus rolled 17 using 1d20+6.  Attack on acolyte 6.
19:44, Today: Beloc S'Viscus rolled 5 using 1d6+3.  Damage on acolyte 6.

Sheeva sees Beloc flanked, and with opponents start falling all around her, she rushes over to engage the enemy behind him. She leans in and takes a bite out of his med-section. Between her thrashing about and her sheer weight, she attempts to knock the defender down.

19:50, Today: Sheeva rolled 19 using 1d20+3.  Attack on acolyte 7.
19:51, Today: Sheeva rolled 4 using 1d6+1.  Damage on acolyte 7.

Acolyte 6's head rolls back as it parts from his neck. Acolyte 7 falls down prone from Sheeva's assault on his legs. 7 spends his move getting back up and incurs an attack of opportunity from Sheeva.

TURN 4
As Acolyte 3 panics and shuffles his feet backwards, he quickly finds his back against the wall of the Sky Burrow's aft bulkhead where the door out to the observation deck is located. He's pulled his mask from his face, and similar to acolyte 6, his face is that of a young man, with scaring and pock marks across his face. His eyes are wild and wide, and his breathing is rapid and erratic.

As the group is turning to face him, a loud thud hits behind them. Sypher lands on the deck in a double roll, and shakily gets on his feet.

At the same time, a tinking sound comes from the chains above. The lone figure slides down the top most chain leaving a wide berth between himself and Beloc. He lands taking a knee and crouched, and as he stands he draws a long sword from a scabbard across his back.

"Gentlemen, lady...Gazra.. I am Sylas Be'al, First Sword of the Bleeding Palms. Since you've managed to dispatch the lads so quickly, you'll face me". He raises his long sword in a salute. He commands acolyte 3 "You there, make yourself useful, and stay put and out of the way. You'll be the lucky one". He shifts he weight to his back foot, and takes a low defensive stance, addressing the group again. "Alright, all at once now. No quarter".

TURN 4
Iro watching the situation unravel with a keen eye. With everyone still, and tension palpable in the air, he decides to move first. Careful to keep his eyes on Sylas, he backs up. Once out of immediate striking distance, he walks towards the fear stricken acolyte, and says, "Sorry buddy. Can't have you just standing here. Sleep tight, see you in the morning light!" The acolyte hardly has time to respond to Iro's cheeriness before a fist lands firmly in his stomach, doubling him over.

20:30, Today: Iro Swordhand rolled 23 using 1d20+4.  Attack roll.
20:31, Today: Iro Swordhand rolled 2 using 1d6.  Non-Lethal Damage.

TURN 4 - Readied Attack: Sylas Be'al
As Iro moves in on Acolyte 3, Sylas flings his long sword hard and fast as Iro lands his first strike.

21:37, Today: Sylas Be'al rolled 8 using 1d20+0.  Sylas Be'al attack roll (-4 for fighting defensively)

Iro hears the sword more than he see's it until he catches a glimpse out of the corner of his eye. The sword misses him, but makes a brief half spin in mid-air and then returns back in the same path it flew, and is then snatched by Sylas from the air.

"The next one wont miss whelp. I instructed him to stay out of this, and you'll not lay another hand on him. By my word he's a noncombatant... and he knows better than to disobey. Turn and face your actual opponent, coward".

TURN 4
Beloc swipes the fresh blood from his blade off with a few flamboyant flourishes meant to intimidate. "Why don't you try that with someone your own size."

He raises his shield, charges up, and attempts to plant it square in his chest. As the shield makes contact, several holes all over his armor open up like pores. Tons of tiny hornets come pouring out and swarm around Sylas. The swarm buzzes around him but fails to do much more than annoy.

21:05, Today: Beloc S'Viscus rolled 24 using 1d20+5.  Bull rush STR check.
21:12, Today: Beloc S'Viscus rolled 3 using 1d6.  Swarm duration.
21:14, Today: Beloc S'Viscus rolled 13 using 1d20+5.  Ranged touch attack for swarm: round 1.

Sheeva moves up into a flanking position and attempts to nip at his heels. Teeth gnash into his hamstrings causing more damage than setting him off balance.

21:23, Today: Sheeva rolled 21 using 1d20+3.  Attack on Sylas.
21:26, Today: Sheeva rolled 7 using 1d6+1 ((6)).
21:27, Today: Sheeva rolled 8 using 1d20+1.  Trip attempt on Sylas.

TURN 4 - Reaction: Sylas Be'al
As Beloc charges Sylas, Sylas lashes out with his long sword, but the strike is batted away by Beloc's shield.

22:33, Today: Sylas Be'al rolled 14 using 1d20+4.  Attack of Opportunity vs. Beloc's Bull Rush.

Sylas braces himself for the impact. Despite the brace and having his feet planted firmly, it isn't enough to stop the charging Beloc.

22:37, Today: Sylas Be'al rolled 16 using 1d20+4.  Opposing STR check vs. Beloc's Bull Rush.

The charge carries him back and slams him into the railing, dealing [5 DMG] and flipping him over the ledge.

Sylas lets his sword fling out and up, freeing his hand. He catches the lowest rung of the railing and stops himself.

22:51, Today: Sylas Be'al rolled 15 using 1d20+2.  Reflex Save.

Seeing Sylas catch himself at the last moment, Gazra takes the time to start walking towards him. He chuckles at Beloc's taunt. "We'd thought you dead Sylas. It seems like every time we meet, you're on the verge of being that way. How exactly did you become First Sword again?".

End of Gazra's turn
