    Damien takes a moment before his reply, rapidly inventorying the magic woven through his cloak, armor, helm, and other tools and accessories. It is an extensive list; over the years he had be given many gifts of thanks or tokens of gratitude, and he had never seen it polite to turn them down. When he replies his mental voice is clear and calm, his thoughts moving with militant efficiency.

    "I am shielded from death magic, constriction, and mental assaults, and all of my faculties are enhanced by my belt to a great degree. I can personally ignore many of the protections and defenses on powerful foes, even Titans, but I must ask of the light-weapon-spell; would it allow me to ignore the thickness of the Titan's skin? She wears no armor, but her hide will likely be my greatest barrier to harming her."

    Damien's grin grows wider, and he stares down at the Titan below, already tensing his legs for a mighty leap and a powerful blow. "That is the most beautiful thing I've heard in some time, Berenike. I promise I will put your gift to great and terrible use. Cheiros, is it alright if we meet with and match pace with Berenike while she casts?"

    Mopsus orders the roc(now named Roc1) to dive towards the enemy, hopefully it would inflict some damage before it was killed.

    Mopsus then proceeded to call forth another Roc from the realms of insanity, labeling it Roc2, and also ordered it to dive towards the enemy, hopefully the two attacking together could distract Scylla somewhat.

    Round 2: Alcaeus summons a celestial roc and orders it to divebomb and attack the scylla in concert with the two unnatural rocs.

    Round 3: Give me a distance at this point, please, because I'm likely to just loose arrows.

    Angela can only shake her head a little at Damien's request for buffs.
    I'm sad to say that any and all buffs I have are not capable of being cast on others. It would seem that I also have a spell similar to Berenike describes, but it sharpens my vision to find weak spots in armor along with thick hides of beasts. But I think that I would prefer to at least be a tad closer to lessen my chances of wind misdirecting my arrows, followed by my eventual trying to come around from behind.

    Rounds 1-3: Continuing descent at the rate of ~95' in a 45 degree angle, effectively putting me at ~620' above and 420' away. If calculations are correct, I'm ~3 additional range increments for my bow away at this point for a -6 penalty to my attack rolls.

    The dragon will start out about 300' up from Scylla.
    So, after Cheiros cast shield on Damien, he tried an insect swarm on Scylla, followed by a Horrid Wilting. Did either seem to have an effect?

    As the heroes descend there is a blast of inky blackness, a blast that appears to draw the ire of the massive titan as she turns finally noticing the diving heroes...

    Even as the thousands of small insects surround her they don't seem to bother the vast beast.

    As Cychreides establishes a tight circle over the site of the battle with the titan, Cheiros does his best to rip away any protections that she may have layered over her natural protections. A squadron of wyverns plunge with Damien towards the Titan. At the last moment, Hestia shrugs and follows in the charge. Cheiros yelps in consternation.

    "Oh, let's be honest. I wasn't going to be able to keep this body for long anyway."

    Cheiros casts a targeted Greater Dispel Magic on Scylla. CL checks as needed: (1d20+20)[29] (1d20+20)[35] (1d20+20)[39] (1d20+20)[32] (1d20+20)[32] (1d20+20)[38]

    Charging attack rolls, factoring in the +25 damage from War Master's charge but not the +24 attack bonus.

    Wyvern attacks:

    Hestia:
    Attack: (1d20+15)[30] plus bonuses from form and War Master's Charge
    Damage: as per form, +1 from Haste, +25 from War Master's Charge.

    Edit: I'd missed Damien's Leading the Charge stance. Please add 19 damage to all successful attacks. Whee! I have a chance of getting through DR.

    Damien looks to the master of death beside him, and he is surprised to feel a strong sense of trust and respect. Cheiros may be considered a practitioner of dark arts, but Damien could think of no other he would rather have supporting him. "Thank you for the allies, Cheiros", Damien calls over the wind. "I do not know if I can return them safely, but if they fall it will be with glory."

    He raises his blade above his head, and he tenses, drawing in his strength and his focus. The edge of his massive sword begins to glow brighter, the transmuted sword catching the light of the day and throwing it back with greater purity and intensity. "Against my blade and my will, may even Titans fall. For glory, and for freedom! CHARGE!" With his final cry he leaps off of Cychreides' back, trailing the flock of undead beasts behind him like the tail of a falling star. And like a falling star do they appear, because each claw and beak and blade shines with an unearthly light, so that the group of them seem to cut the sky asunder as they fall, moving faster and faster as they approach the great wolf-heads.

    Damien aims for the center of the Titan's form, for the woman amidst the beasts. He draws on his strength, and his rage, and the pain of the fallen men. He draws might from the blood in the water, the cries in the air, and the broken vessels below. He strikes the Titan, and the blow is the very essence of glory.

    Spoiler
    Show
    He is in his Leading the Charge stance (+19 damage for everyone when charging. This applies to the damage of each of Cheiros's summons) and his Stance of Alacrity.

    He initiates War Master's Charge, leaping straight down at the Titan. It does several things, so I'm going to break it down.
    1. He and all the summons/anyone else all charge at the same time.
    2. No one provokes an AoO.
    3. He deals +50 damage, they deal +25 damage.
    4. Everyone gets +2 to attack for charging, and then +2 for everyone who charges, which should be a total of +24.
    5. If Damien and at least one other person hits, the Titan is stunned with no save for 1 round.


    Damien is going to use his Stone Power feat to take a -5 on attacks, for 10 temp hp. The real purpose of this is that next turn his attacks will ignore her DR (which may be rather impressive.) He's also going to Power Attack for 2, which gives him +6 damage. His blade is currently Brilliant Energy, overcomes DR as good, and he has Haste and Shield on him.

    War Master's Charge: (1d20+66)[86]
    Damage: (3d6+106)[118] + (1d6)[6]

    That, friends, is a natural 20.

    If that somehow misses (nat 1, etc) he'll use his Lightning Recovery to reroll the attack.
    Just in case, reroll: (1d20+68)[76]

    Angela listens to the wind as it whistles around the party, and upon recieving the blessing from Berenike it became clear to her that staying back while her comrade charged wouldn't live up to her code of battle etitiquate. Despite her suspisions towards the undead master due to his affiliation with the abominations, it was amazing to see the number of draconic like beasts he could summon at a moments notice. If they survive through all of these trials she will have to remember to apologize for her behavior towards him. "Lead on Damien with your blade, I will cover you with a flight of arrows from here!"

    Tapping a Glyph and drawing the bowstring of her bow Meteor Shower arrows of energy both from Berenikes blessing and from its own power lights up the sky with its brilliant radiance. Flapping her wings she flies closer, but not joining the charge as she isn't as capable in melee combat. She aims her arrows at the nearest wolf head's eyes. She may not be able to outright kill this colossal creature, but the very least she can do is try to hamper one of the heads... "Fly swift my shafts of light! Seek out that heart of evil! Still that life of pain!"

    Scylla....

    THe sky rains a terrifying rain of undead wyvrens, a trio of collossal Rocs - 2 mutable and 1 golden- a lone harpy with razor claws and the diving and spinning sword wielding form of Damien the master of 9.

    The menagerie hits with the sound of thunder as Damien's call to war brings them down in a glorious organised circle of viscious claws and fangs. The titan's iron hard scales and massive muscular form is rent and torn, even the seeds of its divine form not giving it enough protection as for the first time this day lurid scarlet blood begins to flow into the cruel sea.

    The spinning blade of Damien is the most devastating. The massive sword finding the gap between scales and sending a vast gout of titan blood into the sky as the massive creature screeches in resounding agony the sound fit to burst a lesser mortal's skin and bone.

    Even as she rears up, the waist of snarling wolves and long tentacles atop a vast scaled fish like tail, her full height towering some 90ft above the clashing seas a volley of arrows slams down into her, many piercing her thick skin and vast scales of her hide. Looking up her small eyes spy Angela, Berenike and the others.

    With a howl she unleashes the fury of millenia... The snarling wolves's head lash out tearing at Damien and the undead horde even as the long tentacles do the same...

    Above, both dragon and master take the full brunt of the titan's blast. Cychreides wavers momentarily, but keeps hold of the dead fury and continues flying.

    Cheiros looks down at the charge, his hand clutching the saddle in consternation as Hestia, in borrowed form, dives down amongst the many other attackers. No matter how much he knew that her real body - or, at least, the thing that now was her new body - was safely with him, it was still heart-wrenching to see her leap into, literally, the maw of the beast. When he saw a tentacle lock around her waist, it was all he could do to stop from screaming. Reflexively, he hurled another of his most powerful magics into the fray, hoping that it would slip through the titan's formidable defenses.

    Momentarily, drawn into Damien's warrior magic, the not-dead wyverns become arrows of doom, darting down with deadly efficiency to assault the massive titan. Now, with that momentary burst of inspiration draining from them, they seem clumsy and ineffectual. The wolf-heads snap at the lumbering forms, tearing deep rents into them. The tentacles wrap around the dragonlets with ease, and the lizards are left snapping ineffectually at the muscular shapes.

    Hestia fights back against the grasping tentacle with the abandon of one who cares not at all about the body she is in, becoming a whirlwind of razor-sharp claws and teeth.

    Will saves vs force damage: Cheiros (1d20+31)[48]. Cychreides: (1d20+17)[20]

    Cheiros casts a maximized Horrid Wilting. 120 damage, Fort DC 34 for half. CL check for SR: (1d20+26)[29]

    All the Wyverns have 94 HP, so unless some of the attacks were doubled up, all are still alive, although most are badly damaged. Wyverns bite attacks on tentacles and wolf heads (I had previously miscalculated their BAB), -4 on attack rolls for those that are grappled:
    Attack: (1d20+13)[22] Damage: (2d8+5)[18]
    Attack: (1d20+13)[20] Damage: (2d8+5)[11]
    Attack: (1d20+13)[25] Damage: (2d8+5)[12]
    Attack: (1d20+13)[31] Damage: (2d8+5)[12]
    Attack: (1d20+13)[19] Damage: (2d8+5)[17]
    Attack: (1d20+13)[33] Damage: (2d8+5)[14]
    Attack: (1d20+13)[18] Damage: (2d8+5)[9]
    Attack: (1d20+13)[29] Damage: (2d8+5)[17]
    Attack: (1d20+13)[16] Damage: (2d8+5)[11]
    Attack: (1d20+13)[21] Damage: (2d8+5)[14]

    You'll need to track the damage to Hestia's body - she's in a previously un-injured 'melee' fury. Hestia attacks (claw claw bite?), calculating in the -4 for being grappled:
    Claw 1 (1d20+13)[23] plus form
    Claw 2 (1d20+13)[32] plus form
    Bite (1d20+8)[27] plus form

    Damien fades into shadows as the first mighty strike is about to land, but the teeth of the wolf-head pierce his protection, finding him in the ethereal shadows in which he hid. He took and more direct route towards blocking the tentacle, batting it aside with his mighty blade, attempting to make the mighty Titan injure herself.

    Spoiler
    Show
    The grapple won't work either way, due to Freedom of Movement, but he uses Scorpion Parry to redirect the blow.

    Attack vs 54: (1d20+47)[53] +2 because it's a maneuver! Whew, I really almost blew that. Also, potentially +2 from flanking, though I doubt she can be flanked.

    He takes all the damage from the wolf head, which is mitigated slightly by all his temp hp.

    With a +19 modifier I highly doubt that I'm going to succeed...

    Throwing up an arm in a vain attempt out of instinct to try and lessen the blow from the energy blast, Angela take it full force. "Ergg...!"

    Somehow she stays upright without being blasted away and clenches her fist as she continues to fly to her right so that all the ranged flyers aren't all sitting in a neat little basket for the titan to blow up. 'This is going to be much harder then that mock godling we fought yesterday it seems... Lets hope that this battle doesn't last too long.' She thinks to her comrades.

    Drawing her bow once more she continues firing off her energy arrows with hopes that one will find its mark and deal copious amounts of damage.

    Damien twists away from the vicious bite of the wolf-head, and through the blood he begins to laugh, the light of his blade glowing brighter. Damien raises his head, looking to the great Titan before him. He whirls his blade in the air, and with a single slow pulse time seems to grind to a halt. There is a flicker, and a blur, and then an explosion of steel and strength tears through the titan's flesh with more fury than any magic.

    The battle rages as the vast pulsewave ripples through the sky with devastating power. Even as Cherios and his dragon are rocked with concussive force he responds with a vast blast of dark energy. THe energy however is absorbed by the foul creatures dark vitality.

    Even as the dark energy washes around the Titan the undead contingent strike, one of Hestia's claws drawing strangely bright blood from the tentacles and a wyrven delivering a minor nick as its undead claws rend and tear.

    From the sky comes more death. A single brilliant bolt from Alceus being turned aside by the beast's massive natural scales even as a octect of force bolts drop like thunderbolts from Angela. One of the magical arrows splashing into the ocean, the other seven cracking into the huge Titan with bone crushing force...

    Then Damien strikes... time slowing down as the warrior dances around the Titan in a display of perfect brutality. Massive strikes hammering down brutally as an entire wolf head is severed from her body alongside 3 tentacles leaving her reeling in agnoy and releasing an ear-shattering shrieking noise as a vast tidal wave of blood sprays hissing and bubling into the ocean. A brief scream from a sailor as the blood washes over him and renders him flesh molten leaving naught but a floating skeleton still clutching an acid etched dagger in its bony teeth.

    The Titan moves to respond. Her fury unleashed! The skies darkening as she draws power upon her to vanquish these mortals dealing grievious harm to her and her body. Even as the magical energies begins to coalesce around her humaoid body her tentacles and wolf head unleash her primeval fury upon Damien and the wyrvens.

    Most of the wyrvens, already damaged are literally torn to pieces as a huge tentacle and two more snarling, foam flecked wolf mouths seek to tear and consume the mortal warrior armed with flickering steel death...

    Apologies for the multiple posts.

    Falling distance for the dragon (3d10)[20] x10. Since they're strapped in, presumably Mopsus and Cheiros are along for the ride down.


    Caught up in the swirling maelstrom, the dragon plummets towards the ocean below, and then struggles to regain altitude. The not-dead beast is buffetted about, and feels the flesh of its wings begin to tear away from the bones themselves as it struggles upwards again. Throughout, it keeps the dead fury clenched tight in its teeth.

    Cheiros clenches his legs around the dragon's back and really, really wishes that there was an appropriate individual to which to pray. Taking advantage of their involuntarily much greater proximity to the great titan, he peers through the darkness and unleashes a pair of beams that blend perfectly with the benighted conditions.

    Crushed in the grip of a tentacle and blasted by multiple lightning strikes, Hestia does her best to respond with slashes of her own.
