    Right then. For ease of inventory keeping I'm going to assume this is an immovable rod(which has these exact properties and nothing else), and the substance is some sort of glue, similar to or actually sovereign glue. Either way I need a solvent or a few days to let the skin peel.

    Aalem moves over next to the robed figure that Ulrik has bound. Thinking for a second or two, Aalem leans back, swishes his mouth a bit, and drools onto his broken wrists.

    After this, he gently shakes him, saying in draconic:

    "Alright. My brusque friend and I have some questions for you. You know what's playing out on this island, you know we won't be letting you live. You do, however, get to choose between a painless death of magical nature, or something inventive, possibly involving ants or acid in your bloodstream. Don't worry, I can get pretty inventive.

    Now, I myself only have one question I expect you to answer. My one question is this: *I hold up my hand* Do you have a solvent for this glue, and if so, where is it?"

    1. How were we chosen for your competition?
    2. What purpose does it all serve?
    3. All I want ight now is my hand unstuck. You're going to help me with this or I'll start with a few dabs of alchemists fire to your feet."

    At this last, I use my right hand to clumsily retrieve a bottle of alchemists fire, showing that I have one.

    Pausing for a tense few moments, staring at you with his facial features hidden by the mask, he finally hangs his head downward and says:

    "You were hand-picked for our study by our Highest Priest of the Xammux. I know not for what purpose, though observing you all is apparently yielding vast quantities of new knowledge. I do not, however, know how to remove the rod. I'm just a steward, a minor worshipper who helps to manage the island or direct the cult zombies to do any required physical labor. I was given instructions to set up your trap by my master, one of the Dead Priests. He should be further down the tunnel, though I doubt you could even reach him."

    "Interesting. Not actually a contestant....You've just opened a new avenue for yourself simply by telling me that. See, I believe we still have options now that don't end with you dead. I also believe you'd rather not be dead. So it's simple: you lead us to this guy, and you don't die. To win, we only have to reduce the number of contestants to 6: if you aren't a contestant, you don't have to die. what do you say?"

    Aalem, this guy's agreed to lead us to his commander in exchange for his life. He's not a contestant here, but a custodian of the island. I realize you probably want to kill him even more now, but it would be in our better interests, I think, to keep our end of the bargain unless he turns on us first. Undo his bindings, and as we move stay in the rear. I'll be largely useless without my spell complement, but I can take a weaker enemy after hitting the with fatigue. I'll play point defense to you in a combat scenario.

    I have no problems with that, he may even lead to us getting off of this island if we use him well. I'll stick to the back, then. ... Could you ask him whether or not there is a black Rakshasa on this island?

    To my knowledge, there is not.

    Just let him go, He has every incentive now to lead us true. If he wants us dead, the only way to do that in his current state is leading us to the guy in back. If he wants to live, same story. If he's suicidal, he's in no condition to do something capable of harming us to a great degree right now.

    He leads you down the tunnel beyond the door, going about 40 feet before reaching yet another iron door.

    "Beyond here is a series of storage chambers for zombies, specimens, and other objects used by the cult. Each chamber is designed not only to store these things, but act as a defense against intruders, preventing them from going further. Now that I am no longer acting in the cult's interests, I highly doubt that anything beyond here will obey my commands. We will simply have to fight our way through, if that is your intention."

    Ulrik, you're up. If there's anything you think you can't handle, say so and we can pull back.

    I'll retrieve an alchemist's fire again and have it ready in my right hand.

    Saying as a player, not in game:

    DuSlaanesh, in the interest of expediency, please assume that Ignus will push the group in regardless of the answer to that question, with the assumption of retreat should it appear to dangerous to proceed. I just put this to reduce the real time delay in forward movement a bit.

    EDIT: Also, I'd like a DM call here. is my thumb stuck to the rod too, or was it overlapped with the rest of my fingers when the glue set? if it's free, I can freeze the rod without having to use both hands or hit it on something. otherwise, I have to consider what I'm holding when I freeze it. just want to know my capabilities here. As I didn't specify(and really, who would?), it's your call.

    Ignus, your thumb is also stuck to the rod. I assume that, if you were to grab such a thing, you would have used your thumb as well.

    Stumbling into the room, you see that it is about 15 x 35 feet. Another door is at the far end. Meathooks and various metal tools line the walls. Ten human zombies crowd the room, and they all turn to face you slowly.

    Roll for initiative.

    Fair enough. I just wanted to know exactly how limited I am right now.

    Initiative: (1d20+2)[4]

    For the record, unless he's acting under orders or you decide he notices or does something, in any given battle Kwaiit should be assumed to be fluttering near me, but using total defensive actions as his only action and as such doesn't need to be in the initiative order.

    16. I'll probably use the total defense action on my turn to take it to 20, but we'll see.

    EDIT: careful with your dice rolling, Lothbrok. you rolled a d20 on damage instead of a d12. I know we make that mistake in real life too sometimes, but here you gotta watch the copy/paste.

    The zombies shuffle forward, swinging their clubs or their arms at you.

    Ulrik, none of the blows seem to be able to penetrate your armor.

    A couple of zombies that managed to get within reach of Ignus swung their clubs clumsily and instead struck the floor.

    One zombie got a solid hit on the robed figure, leaving him bleeding on the floor.

    Aalem steps forward, attempting to grab the head of the closest zombie, but fails to.

    I'll attempt to hit the nearest zombie with my alchemists fire:

    touch attack: (1d20+4)[20]

    damage: (1d6)[6]

    Note: Alchemist's Fire does spalsh daamge of 1 to all creatures in the surrounding area. all damage is fire, meaning I'm immune. further effects to follow on next turn (if it hits). more actions to follow on confirmation of result, so please just say if I hit or miss atm.
