2nd Chapter - A Shift in The Wind
Xiamat stands at the edge of the pool and attempts to expand his communicative horizons.  “Any baby mosquitos down there?  If you’re down there, speak up.  I’ll kill you fast.  Unless you try to fool Xiamat by not saying nothin’.  If you do that, Xiamat kill you real fast!”

Among the many things he knows is the proven fact that when the stork delivers mosquito larvae, he always leaves them in stagnant puddles of water.

Alwyn leaves the mosquito inspection to Xiamat.  Once that's done, he carefully leads the way down to check on the flood.

Xiamat follows as soon as the terrible truth dawns on him: the mosquito larve tricked him.  They were really hiding down here!

The majority of the clay soldiers are now just lumps of clay in a pool, however opposite the room 8 clay soldiers remain out of the water, waiting.  The one still pointing at you as the door opens.

Xiamat bends at the knees and repeatedly chops his crotch while gyrating his pelvis in a vulgar manner.  By doing this, he hopes to sucker the remaining clay golems into advancing.

Alwyn is happy to let Xiamat be the center of attention right now.  He ducks behind the nearest barrier and readies his blade.

The clay soldiers don't take the bait, waiting with only the emotionless stares of statues.

Xiamat makes every obscene gesture he knows, and invents some when he runs out.

Alwyn looks around for something to throw at them.  Preferably something heavy (but still light enough that he can actually throw it).

Xiamat goes out and fetches some of those miniature figures.  When he returns, he mutilates one of them in front of the clay soldiers while making tormented noises.

Xiamat's antics continue to not impress the clay statues.

There are 70 spears from the now melted clay soldiers, but they're in the bottom of the pool, mixed with the clay slurry.  There's nothing else obviously heavy here except perhaps the glowing pulsing crystal atop the throne or the throne itself.  There may be something heavy in one of the rooms previous (not in the pool room).  In any case the new pool here is 50' across, throwing something heavy that far is not likely, without a catapult.

Xiamat throws a figurine at one of the statues.  He aims for the groin area.

Xiamat tosses the little figure with good spin and it sticks in the 'armor' of the clay statue though not exactly in the groin.  That seems to finally have gotten their ire, the 7 clay soldiers left move to walk very slowly around the pool toward you (only 10' a round so it's going to take quite awhile to get there.)  The leader remains sitting in the throne pointing.

Xiamat attempts a Mighty Deed of Valor!  With a maniacal roar, he dropkicks the first clay soldier in the chest, knocking the others over like dominoes and causing some of them to tumble into the pool.

Or not...

18:04, Today: Xiamat rolled 2 using 1d3+1.  Deed die.

Xiamat misses, sliding along the clay slick stopping at the foot of the first warrior on that side.  It raises it's spear to bring it down on Xiamat.

(Opportunity for Alywn, Eristo and co & Rod Krait to do something before the strike comes)

If Xiamat has the soldiers occupied, Alwyn wants to sneak around to the back of the room.  It seems to him that disabling the king might stop the others as well.

The soldiers are coming along both sides of the pool, there's only 5' on each side, 4 on the side with Xiamat, and 3 on the other - and they've only moved a few feet past the beginning of the pool as they seem to be exceedingly slow.  The ones on the other side are turning and going back around toward Xiamat, but it will be some time before they vacate that side and move past the king - about 6 rounds.

You might be able to run down the side and jump/swim around the corner to the king with maybe a round or two to fight him before they're on you.

Eristo will cast a Magic Missile at the arm of the clay soldier menacing Xiamat trying to shatter the arm before he gets hit.

20:55, Today: Eristo rolled 8 using 1d20+3.

The spell flies away from Eristo's brain without effect.

Rod comes up behind Xiamat and throws his awl at the clay soldier Xiamat is lying down in front of exclaiming "Take that!"


09:25, Today: Rod Krait rolled 6 using 1d20 ((6)).

Having lulled the clay warrior into a false sense of security by deliberately missing the drop kick and falling prone, Xiamat cleverly rolls his foe up in a small package (forgetting there is no referee around to count to three)!

17:21, Today: Xiamat rolled 1 using 1d3.  Deed roll.

Alwyn dives into the central pool and swims as quickly as he can toward the clay king.
