    Default Strange Aeons: Lovecraftian Affair [DMOOCH]

    R1T25: With a speed born of her twitchy nature, one of the women backs into a corner, trying as best she can to keep her flanks covered. Who am I, and what am I doing here? A bow, she knew instinctively, she knew how to wield a bow. But none presented itself. Zarinda, my name is Zarinda, but nothing else.

    R1T24: Haru wakes up dazed and confused, and immediately starts looking back on the dream. The details seem so strong and yet so vague, all at once. He moves to the bars and grabs at them, testing them, but groans as he can't get through by normal means. Watching the torture only bothers him more, and it finally gets to the point where he can't handle it anymore.

    Remembering the dream, and what he did, he tries to call up the same power once more, until something snaps and he bonks his head on the bars, and nothing seems to have happened. He stands back up straight, he turns to the Doctor and shouts angrily, fingers pointing from the other side of the bars and impotently shouts, "I'm gonna kill you, you **** geezer!!!!"

    R1T23: Eric shakes the fog from his head. He sees the torture, it is obvious that there is no good being done here. A pressure builds in his head, a migraine threatening to split his skull. He screams, "STOP!"

    Implements on the table rattle, but the doctor holds and roots herself as if something unseen acted on her.

    R1T21: Slowly coming to amidst the screams, the man with no name but the embroidered patch on his chest mutters to himself. Counting. Counting and touching the bars of his cell.

    "Two. Three. Five. Seven. Eleven. Seventeen. Nineteen..." He trails off at the other prisoner's exclamation, focusing, briefly, on the doctor and more firmly on the re-purposed tools. His eyes avoid the victim with practiced ease.

    R1T14: Blood. All Flair remembers is blood and pain and- "STOP!" - The man yelling next to him snapped him back to reality.

    He quickly took note of his surroundings; the cell, the man on the crude operating table and the so-called doctor, but more importantly the keys at her belt. If I can get her close, I can get those keys.

    He has a flash of insight on grabbing and tries to press himself sideways at the shoulder and nearly dislocates it as he tries reaching for the doctor. He grabs onto the keys and there is a momentary tussle but she wrenches away and keeps the keys on her person.

    Okay, let's break this down. First, attempting to take something off somebody is - if not a Sleight of Hand check - then a steal maneuver. Since that was the truth of what you wanted, even though you defined Martial Flexibility, etc., you conducted a Steal maneuver. There is an Improved Steal maneuver, but without Combat Expertise as the pre-req Martial Flexibility would do you no good.

    So, the Steal combat maneuver (w/o any martial flexibility) was conducted. Btw, this is not a meta-thing, so I do encourage you to roll your own dice for combat. Still, the doctor has not gone this round and is flat-footed so no AOO. You rolled a 15, with a +2 for CMB for a total of 17. Even then, it was not enough to overcome the doctor's FCMD. However, getting a CMB result of 17 is pretty damn good, so it should tell you something; if nothing else, it seemed like she was fantastically strong despite what you would expect from her size. (Well, at least "fantastically" compared to you.)

    Flair has to withdraw his arm immediately or risk injury, and it does hurt as it is.

    R1T11: Knuckles, do you do anything?

    R1T3: The doctor spins on Flair and hisses "Quiet!" as her face momentarily ... changes, to look like that of the man that tried to grab the keys, before it changes back. She turns to go back to her bloody work, but when she turned the bloodied man on the table used his blood-soaked bindings to slip out a leg and he manages to kick her just as she turns back to him and his foot catches her in the cheek and chin for 5 NL. As her arms flail from what is actually a pretty solid kick, her right arm knocks the keys - previously loosened - off of her belt and in reach of Flair's cell (he or Eric can grab them). The doctor, infuriated and seemingly oblivious to her crucial loss, launches on the man on the table to stab him deep with the shears. He gives a terrifying yell of pain and it's hard to tell if he is dead and twitching or moving semi-consciously.

    End Round One, Begin Round 2 ...

    R2T25: No one tells Zarinda to be quiet, especially someone who has clearly confined her. She starts shouting at the 'doctor'...serving not only to express her displeasure at being confined but also potentially distracting her from noticing if either of the two men near the keys grab for them.

    R2T24: Haru growls as she ignores him, and yells out once more. "Are you just going to ignore me!!!!!?"

    He tries again, lighting his body up this time for only a moment as he lunges through the cell bars once more, his body bright this time only for a moment, his focus not strong enough to manage it any further. But at least, this time, he is now outside of his cell.

    She doesn't play attention to him, totally focused on her task of murder.

    R2T23: Eric pushes against the bars in frustration, eyes attempting to bore holes in the maniac with the shears. People speak of glaring daggers, Eric's look appears more...potent. A short-bladed sword appears in the air and plunges toward the 'doctor' but misses. The keys still lie next to the bars of his cell.

    R2T21: Eyes now shifting rapidly from corner to corner, the man with no name gathers what little power he can from the angles of the room itself. Holding up his hand, his eyes settle on the key, and they lift up a few inches off the ground ... seemingly responsive to his power!

    R2T14: Flair, the keys just lifted about three inches off the ground ... and other impossibilities are occuring all around: glowing, scarred creatures walking through prison bars; swords appearing and swing about. Yup. Reality has taken a holiday. What do you do?

    R2T14: Flair stats cursing in Abyssal, his recently hyperextended shoulder throbbing. After taking a deep breath, he starts slamming the cell door, screaming, "I'm going to knock this door off its hinges and rip your head off your body!"

    The doctor doesn't even seem to register that Flair was making noise, let alone noting what he said.

    R2T11: The burly woman (Knuckles) reaches out in anger - her arm obviously and woefully too far away - but from her anger a green dot of light comes forth from her hand and hits the doctor right at her tailbone with a crit for 14 acid!

    R2T3.1: As the doctor wheels around in pain, the man has just enough energy to push-kick her against the bars to the women's cell several feet away. The effort seems to be too much for him and he slumps, possibly dying from his wounds.

    R2T3.05: The female towards the back of the cell has all she needed and runs forth and reaches through the bars across the doctor's throat and her hand coming mostly back while her left hand reaches and then clasps at the woman to try and keep her at the cell.

    R2T3: The doctor thrashes at the bars to try and break free of the bar-reinforced choke hold.

    End Round 2, Begin Round 3 ...

    R3T25: Zarinda, the front-of-the cell is now crowded as two stronger-looking woman than yourself are there - the one who seemed to fire some type of acid ray, and the one currently grabbing the doctor in a sleeper hold through the bars. What do you do?

    R3T24: Haru, what do you do? You are adjacent to the man (though a 5' step is better positioning if you want to do something for him). He is dead, dying, or unconscious. You are 20' from the doctor who is against the bars of the far cell in a neck hold.

    R3T24: Haru lunges over to the doctor, held in the sleeper hold by one of the other prisoners, and shoves a fist into her stomach (4 + 6 cold). To his surprise, his hand has become cold while he strikes, but the energy and the feeling dissipates the moment he moves back from the strike.

    R3T23: Eric, you have TK control of your summoned short sword and you are fatigued. The keys are floating three inches off the deck right near your feet. What do you do?

    If she had some sort of weapon, even an improvised one, Zarinda could lend a hand to dealing with the doctor but it seems they have her under control and lets them continue.

    R3T23:
    Eric stands dumbfounded for a moment, the sword faltering as he realizes he can FEEL it, across the room. He tries to gather his wits and swing it again. He has no memory of doing anything like this and as such as no sense of what it takes to do a task. With a little bit of oomph, the sword vastly overshoots its mark to smash against a far stone wall and shatter. The pieces hang there in midair briefly and then disintegrate into the air.

    R3T21: Eyes not shifting from the key, the man makes as if to pull on a tether and the key glides towards him. Grabbing it, he reaches up to unlock the door of his cage. His cell is now unlocked and he has keys in hand.

    R3T11: The woman that fired the blast of acid gives two punches through the bars into the doctor's kidney areas, though only the second one really landed. The puncher is just under five-and-a-half-feet tall, but she is stocky and her punch does 6 (lethal) damage.

    R3T3.05: In the meantime, the woman performing the hold tries to use the bars to give her extra leverage to really apply pressure and does 4 NL (min, seems she's pretty strong herself) to the doctor.

    R3T3: The doctor drops the half-shears and really struggles to get out of the hold as she is gasping for air and having trouble breathing now. In this effort, her body transforms - but not in a manner that gets her out of the hold. What remains is a gray-skinned humanoid with noseless, mouthless face and truly inhuman eyes. It is a terrifying alien in that its featurelessness and spindly limbs are a mockery of yourselves. Even the clothes she was wearing are gone, either assumed into this form; or having been "constructed" from whatever allows this creature to shapeshift.

    R4T24: Haru recoils in surprise, but grits his teeth and goes to slam his fist into the creature's gut. But first, he again tries to bring forth more cold and that was his mistake. The thing is ready for him this time and throws a claw right into his chest for 12 (max) and the bizarre-looking humanoid with scarred features (that's Haru, not "the Asian youth" anymore) screams and falls to the ground, dead or unconscious.

    R4T24: Haru recoils in surprise, but grits his teeth and goes to slam his fist into the creature's gut for 4 + 5 cold and she reels from the cold.

    R4T23: Eric stares at the sword that disappeared as quickly as it came. He looks back to the 'doctor' and glares. A dagger appears and plunges toward its target, sinking into its upper left arm with enough force (7) to cause her/it to slump in the grappler's hold.

    R4T21: How strange can strange things be before your brain just accepts them as is? the man idly wonders, as he takes advantage of the creature's predicament to open the other cage.

    R4T14: After thanking the man who unlocked his door, Flair exits his cell and prepares to engage the doctor. However, she seems to be unconscious so he keeps his mind clear and adaptable.

    R4T11-3: The powerhouse woman tells the other woman to "bring her down, keep ahold of her, bring her down..." The grappling woman does so, and then the burly, black-haired woman reaches through the bars - each side of the head, grabs ahold, and then yanks. The creature's neck makes a sickening, snap-popping sound ... it sounds like someone grabbing several stalks of celery and then twisting for that wet, snapping crunch.

    Eric takes 5 to his lower back and Haru takes 4 to the back of his right knee! While they suffer damage, it is not immensely painful as there is an anaesthetizing that goes with the the wound.

    Begin Round 1 ...

    Eric, you are in the corner of this room, and there are two of these things threatening you. Haru is next to you, but also between you and the door. This is all the room has the size for as far as creatures. There is no place to take a 5-foot-freet move to, and it is considered difficult terrain from clutter and rubble in here. What do you do?

    R1T25: Eric scrambles back out of the room, unready to fight anything that close and frankly shocked by the sudden attack. As he passes Haru both monsters nip at Eric and miss and Eric gets into the hallway (and likely a few feet from the door at that).

    R1T24: Jacqui - who was standing on the other side of the hallway from the entrance to this room - gives a little gasp of surprise (and disgust) and moves 10' down the hall towards the crossbowmen.

    R1T21: Haru, you are in this storeroom with super-sized centipedes. You see the wound on your knee is worse than it feels, and you know centipedes in general have a paralytic. You are right next to the door out of the room, and both of these things are threatening you - one right in "front" of you (door is to your left) and the other is catty-corner to your right.

    Whether or not you choose to capitalize on it, both of the things snapped at Eric on his way out, so they both have used an AOO for the round.

    R1T21: Haru curb stomps a centipede, smacking its head against rubble on the ground and causing its exoskeleton to freeze - enough to fell that one. (Twitching antennae is disturbing, however.) He then steps to the other side of the doorway so that the remaining centipede within must deal with Haru.

    R1T14: Setting the unconscious man down softly, the ashen-faced man draws his scimitar and shifts onto the balls of his feet but doesn't approach; besides, Haru is at the doorway.

    R1T10: Knuckles, Haru is standing just in the hallway. If you want to engage the last thousand-legger, you can move 5' through Haru's space (5') and 5' in for 20' total movement. Or, not bother. What do you do?

    R1T10: At the sight of danger, Knuckles slips past Haru and into the room and hits the remaining centipede hard with a well-placed kick (7), but it does not go down.

    R1T9: The monster crits Knuckles on her hip/rump for a 5, and the venom quickly goes to work as she takes another 2 DEX damage and Knuckles stumbles a little.

    R1T8: Zarinda, you know there's a fight as Eric and Haru both came out bloody. Do you keep your bow trained down the hall towards the men, or move behind Haru and take a potshot at whatever baddie you might see?

    R1T7: Knuckles, Bishop rushes in and goes right up to you. The small dog goes at your wound quickly with its muzzle, like it might bite. Strangely, it does so awkwardly as to provoke an AOO as it is focused on that very that the centidede bit you. What do you do?

    If you want to shoot, you would have to step draw and shoot since with futzing with the bodies your bow is slung. The Gray is 65' away, meaning you would have to use a 5' step and a move action draw, or a move action up to 30' with the free draw to bring it within short range. You can't draw, move, and bring the target into point blank range this round.

Flair yelled, chasing after the shapeshifter, following her/it back into the room and with the destruction of the room into a tiny alcove section around a tight bend so that only two people could get to it. The creature ... is cowering in what might be fear, though it's hard to tell from a creature of this sort.

    R1T5: Drawing his scimitar and taking those stuttering steps, the ashen-faced man runs towards the room the creature is hiding in. His mouth waters, and he's struck with a sense of madcap desire and biting hunger as his bird soars past him.

    R2T9: Well, this will probably backfire horribly. Flair thought. Let's do this anyway. "I don't really want to hurt you if I don't have to. Give me a reason not to."

    R2T7: Haru stops for a second, thinking, and finally resists the urge to beat on her, instead preparing himself in case she turns out to be doing something unexpected.

    R2T5: Stopping short from slamming into everyone's backs, the ashen faced man shifts from foot to foot in a combination of nervousness and excitedness while his bird settles on his shoulder.

    "Beware, the dybbukim are never satisfied until their evil work is done," he warns the others. And what is this mutt, that it scares the spirit?

    I'm moving ahead for everyone's sake. If you do have something, let me know.

    R3T19: The mouthless, expressionless Gray is in the corner partly cowering - either it/she can't respond, or won't respond, to Flair's words. She/it puts her/its hands over her/its earholes, withdrawing into herself/itself and shaking its head.

    R3T17: Eric, what do you do?

    R3T17: Zarinda calls, "If you don't intend to finish her off, give me a clear line of sight and I will!"

    Eric adds, "Come on, give us something to work with here!"

    R3T9.1-9: Well, I tried, thought Flair. He then moves to back out of the alcove so Zarinda could take her shot. Just before he passes Haru the Gray takes a forceful slash towards him, but not before Haru gives a charged downwards chop to its right thigh for 2 + 2 cold. Having no means without a mouth formed to take that gasp from the cold the pain is internalized, and that is not a good thing. Still, it is not enough to halt the Gray's cheap on Flair as he passes by and gets slashed by its large, powerful claws across his right shoulder for 7 - a nasty wound, to be sure. The thing no longer seems to be in a timid posture, though it is still reeling and nursing its new leg wound. Still, Flair manages to open datum.

    R3T8: Zarinda fills into the hole, passing by Haru and gritting her teeth for what might come as she comes into the alcove and sees the Gray in the corner. But she notes that Flair just took a cheap shot, which might be what she needs. She fires at point blank range without getting attacked, but the strange gray flesh is both pliant and resilient as her arrow bounces off the thing. She and Haru now are the only ones adjacent to the Gray (or w/ LOS). She has a bow, so she is not threatening.

    I took your turn simply because you already implied your stated action and to move this along. I hope you don't mind (other than the fact Zarinda missed).

    There is nothing for Patient 601 to do right now, so he is technically delaying ...

    End Round 3, Begin Round 4 ...

    R4T21:
    The adolescent-sized otterhound instantly stops barking when the wounded Flair comes back into the main part of this room. Bishop barks a couple times non-threatingly at Flair, goes up to him and makes some moderate-volume baying noise and licks the four slash lines of the deep lacerations on Flair, and Flair instantly feels a warm, burning-prickling-balming combination as the puppy's tongue glows and that glows and fully heals and closes Flair (no longer wounded).

    R4T19: The gray's movement is off and it sends a poor slash out at Haru which he easily sidesteps.

    R4T9.1: Haru, what do you do?

    Flair on deck, Zarinda in the hole, Eric/ Knuckles/ Patient 601 delaying ...

    Though the gray appears staggered from a contusion that appears frostbitten on its leg, the creature still "regained its balance" as far as resetting AOOs since it took its turn. If you shoot again this time, it will provoike an AOO since you are threatened and there is nowhere to go to shoot and not be at PB range. Actually, there is nowhere else to go in this little space at all.

    R4T9.1: Haru will pull out a type of weapon that is strange to Zarinda (nunchaku) and starts off at the Gray with it, allowing his ability to infuse his weapon as it had his fists before now. "To think I showed you mercy," he says, barely recovering fast enough to not pull a muscle from that overtension. The Gray no longer seems staggered.

    R4T8: Zarinda ... threatened in melee is not the way you want to be, and if this is anything like the Gray you fought in the basement, they are vastly superior physical opponents. What do you do?

    Everyone in the party is delaying at this time and can post.

    R4T8: With the Gray now at point blank range, Zarinda can let loose with her best shot, and that's just what she is going to do. As she does so, the thing lashes out at her and catches into her armor with its claw - not enough to hurt her, but with just enough force to throw her aim into having the projectile do no more than lightly skip off of its hide.

    End Round 4, Begin Round 5 ...

    R5T19: The Gray slashes at Haru, and despite incredible reflexes and some phenomenal type of spinning defensive style with the strange weapon, its claw just manages to get the scarred man along his left upper arm for a whalloping 12 (max)! A cracking sound is heard as the man's arm must be broken and his brachial artery was cut into and he falls, but that sound is nearly eclipsed by Haru's pitched scream of pain before he is out cold. [Repeat, Haru is down.] With its left claw, the thing slashes down and gets her from the forehead and down a little for 6. For her, the force of the blow was felt more than the slicing of its claws, and in one stroke she is already feeling whatever panic she might otherwise feel.

    "Haru is down!" shouts the ashen-faced man.

    R5T18: The pooch instantly bolts into the room atop Haru. It stops barking and does the same baying-lick of Haru's wounds as before and Haru receives 10 healing, a little shy of being fully healed.

    R5T9.1: Haru, I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is that while your arm still hurts a little, you are awake. The bad news is that the dog is on top of you/ in your square while you are prone. Oh, yes, almost forgot. Because you got KO'd, you dropped your nunchaku.

    So, double-whammy ... if you do anything other than lay there, you instantly evoke all of the pain of sharing a space with another creature. Remember, Bishop is Small, but there are no partial gimmees or reduced penalties for Medium+Small in the same square compared to a Medium+Medium. However, if you lay there "like an object" rather than as an active participant you do not count against Bishop.

    Also, doesn't matter how you do it, picking up a weapon provokes an AOO.

    Zarinda on deck, Gray in the hole, everyone else is delaying ... so anyone else delaying can do something.
