    Show
    “Thank you Jens, healing would be much appreciated!”

    R1T7: Brother Jaume chants a prayer to Erastil, asking for aid in defeating this foe. His quarterstaff glows momentarily before he strides towards the direction taken by Flair and Dorn and the sound of Flair's voice. In moving, he moves right into where Flair and Dorn are standing and jukes west just as he sees the oneirogen, but Brother Jaume does a quick diving roll to get safely into position to threaten the thing next to Flair. Seeing occasional arcs of electricity, he prudently goes no farther.

    R1T6: Finally getting his cue, Jens manifests vigor, but in doing so he finds that the energy a small portion of that energy is actually usable by Jens, so he instead redirects it to Dorn, who he knows will get as close as he can.
    Spoiler: Jens, Brother Jaume
    Show
    Brother Jaume had 4 THP remaining from that last double-strength vigor, and only "vigor" .... with no qualifiers or mentions of increase ... were part of Jens' readied action. So, Brother Jaume is "topped off" at 5 THP (I track that), and I had to make a judgment call. With Flair making no mention of having gotten hurt (Jens' other double-vigor recipient), it was down to Corbin and Dorn. Despite the fog likely forcing Corbin to close to melee when it is time, he has been twitchy of lately, so Dorn was a safe bet for someone who is going to get in an enemy's grill. So, Dorn now also has vigor on him (albeit at only 4 THP).

    End Round One, Begin Round 2 ...

    R2T21: Maeni goes north toward the wall, then follows it westward, moving around boxes as she goes. She then prepares herself just in case.

    R2T20: Dorn calls on the favor granted him by Torag and attacks the oneirogen. His hammer comes down on its right hand for 13, then along its neck for 11 ... and still it stands.

    R2T19-14: It tries to return the favor with two fists, but misses both times. It then steps backwards ... further into the electrical field! Nadya hovers where she is and casts shield on herself. An arc of electricity jolts the former human for 3 electricity.

    R2T11: Flair, you are currently concentrating on war totem. The oneirogen is out of sight, and definitely further into the field of electricity. What do you do?

    R2T9: Corbin squints into the mist, moving west until both Dorn and flair are in view... "Where is the bastard?"

    R2T7: Brother Jaume, the oneirogen moved further south into the electrical field, out of view. The electrical field is not one which wholly suffuses everything in the area, and doesn't even seem to do much damage to nearby boxes. You could feasibly dodge to give chase, but there's no guarantee. What do you do?

    R2T7: BJ follows the Oneirogen with the intent of pressing the attack, attempting to dodge the electrical discharge. He sees the oneirogen, but knows that if he wastes his magic to enlarge he will just bump against an obstruction and so he remains normal size. He easily fights off the soporific effects of being too close to the former man, and attacks with a flurry. His first strike smashes into the living rift's right shoulder for 13, and that is all that is needed to drop him, but he is in a fury and smashes him twice more with the staff and caves his skull in with a spinning downward axe kick.

    The electrical field stops.

    Combat Ends ...

    R1T17: Brother Jaume strides forward to engage the cultist to his left using his staff as a walking stick. “You should just surrender now. It will be better for everyone involved. You will not be harmed.” The big man smiles warmly and with honest compassion.

    R1T16: Brother Jaume's new friend takes out a crowbar and swings it at the monk, who simply shifts his staff to the other side of him and blocks the crowbar.

    R1T13: Jens, you heard the sound of something hitting a large piece of wood immediately after you overhearing Brother Jaume's attempt to calm things. It seems that battle is joined. But you aren't up to the room yet and can't see. What do you do?

    R1T9: Flair steps forward until he's standing next to Maeni. From that vantage point, he sees the fighting and sends a tether against the foe between Jens and Brother Jaume, but not before re-activating his defensive power. The tether slams right into AO2's chest for 8, and that strange arcane tether is now linked to Flair and the Apostle.

    End Round One, Begin Round 2 ...

    R2T30:
    "Look out, Nadya!" can be heard Dorn's voice. From over, hidden under one of the pallets, bursts an old lady that ignores the older but slighly closer man as she tries to wrap her hands around Nadya's surprised throat. It is too late, though, and Nadya is held fast in the crone's hands and takes 12 from sheer force (which is enough to deplete Jens' vigor effect on her).

    R2T25: Corbin decides now is the time to pop up into room, shouldering past Flair and Maeni. He takes a good look around the room before snapping a shot off at one of the crazies threatening Nadya, but the quarrel hits rubble in the rear and is destroyed by its own acid. He then fast reloads with a durable bolt.

    R2T19: Nadya is being strangled by the woman you can only guess by a previous description is the Bag Lady. She is terrified, but tries to concentrate in the grapple to do something, but fails. Nadya has tears in her eyes as she fears she will be ended by a hideous old crone.

    R2T18: AO3 maneuvers around to flank Nadya. He hits her in the back with the crowbar, but her shield spell protects her from real contact.

    R2T17: Brother Jaume, you are enjoying an influx of health from Jens, and you are flanking AO2 with him. On the other hand, you are being flanked by AO1, and you have found that these Apostles in Orpiment are damn sneaky opponents with cheap shots.

    R2T17: “That was an unwise decision, my friend!” Brother Jaume is still smiling as his dusty, sandal clad foot swings up to strike the apostle in orpiment (AO1) about the face in a quick succession of three strikes. The first nails the apostle's jaw for 9 NL (something from Flair seems to be giving Brother Jaume greater ferocity), but in rechambering his kick, Brother Jaume knees himself in the jaw!

    Brother Jaume, you have suffered a catastrophic failure! Roll a Will save vs. DC 20 or be knocked unconscious.

    Spoiler: Brother Jaume; Flair
    Show
    Brother Jaume hyper-chambers on the second kick as he slips on some of the dust of the rubble to knee himself in the head and he falls down unconscious. AO1 does a coup de grace to Brother Jaume's head, crushing his skull. Brother Jaume then has a sense of how things unfold from there ...

    Distracted by Brother Jaume's sudden death (and the sudden surge of psionic power), Jens fails to concentrate properly and loses his attempt to remotely aid Nadya. Maeni begins casting a lengthy spell. Dorn fails to connect against the terrifyingly fast (even if grappling) Bag Lady. AO2 is tethered, but steps forward - closing the gap - and cracks Maeni's skull with his crowbar. Unarmed, she is not ready for such a weapon to be so deadly and it hurts more than expected. She loses her spell, and then her balance as she topples down the stairs to the landing, badly wounded. Flair channels some of his energy through the tether to hurt AO2, and then tries a fist to the jaw, but only succeeds in glancing off of his padded armor.

    Aggra snaps Nadya's neck, stepping north to flank Dorn as she releases the body. Corbin backs north against the wall and fires off a shot at AO2 but misses (and reloads). AO3 repositions to flank Dorn, makes a brutal sort of "pimp slap" with his crowbar, dazing the saint. Jens doesn't appear very dangerous, but with a bird-man cranking another bolt onto a crossbow, AO1 charges Corbin and smacks his arm, hard.

    Meanwhile, Jens seems to be in a rapturous trance after seeming to get stronger from Brother Jaume's death .... and then Nadya's death as well! He smiles a smile that says that Jens is no longer the Jens you know. He does some mental gymnastics to remove Dorn's dazed condition ... and give it to Flair! Maeni unsteadily gets to her feet and sends a jolt upwards at AO2 (missing). Dorn sidesteps and attacks the Bag Lady, but it his hammer curiously bounces off of her tough hide. With Flair now dazed, AO2 smacks the energy tether off of him.

    Aggra attacks Dorn and begins strangling him. To his credit, Dorn seems to possess an ability that helps him shrug off nearly half of what she tries to put on him, but he is still held by a terrifying opponent. Corbin moves a few feet further into the room to not get cornered by his opponent and shoots at him. He gets hit in the leg first, which sends his shot off, and then he reloads. Dorn's struggles in the Bag Lady's grasp saves him from AO3's flanking reposition strike. AO1 acrobatically moves to now flank Corbin with AO1, smacking the tengu in his chain shirt but not hurting him. The battle truly takes a turn when Jens gathers his energy and then lets loose with a stunningly powerful geokinetic blast .... at Flair!

    Though Maeni didn't see Jens do this, she does see his trademwark attack hit Flair, and assumes it was a very unfortunate miss against AO2. Seeing that most of the offensive power of the enemy group appears to come from very precise attacks from the opposition, Maeni runs up the stairs and manages to dodge AO2's AOO to come more into the room and attempt to cast obscuring mist. Not wanting to lose her spell to chance, and seeing that AO2 already made an AOO against her, she begins to cast her spell without doing so defensively, only to learn that AO2 has already recovered to attack her again! She gets hit hard in the belly, ruining her spell.

    Dorn finds he is unable to wrestle out of a woman's grasp who exceeds him in age by 15+ years (and he is 50). AO2 rocks Maeni with another blow, dropping her unconscious. Flair spends his time shaking himself out of the dazed condition, only to find himself badly battered and Maeni near him, unconscious.

    Surrounded as he is, the Bag Lady is ever more dangerous as she begins to choke the life out of Dorn with even greater power than her initial press, enough that he sinks to his knees. Corbin acrobatically clears to the south side of the room and shoots at AO1 to dissuade any close chase. AO3 gives another poor accounting of himself as his weapon is turned aside by studded leather. No longer dealing with Corbin, AO1 steps up to Maeni and now has two kills to his credit as he smashes her brains in ... and Jens is further amplified and in a killing euphoria. He capitalizes on this by gathering energy again to fire yet another geo-blast at Flair, knocking the man clear off the stairs and to his death below ... and again, further enhancing his power.

    What follows in even faster and not quite bit-by-bit time lapse is Dorn being killed, the whole converging on Corbin as Jens steps back to bring AO2 into his collective. Corbin kills AO2 before being killed himself, and then the Bag Lady, the two Apostles, and an exultantly power-mad Jens agreeing to work together.

    The vision flashing before the two men's inner mind's eye ends. For Flair, everything seems to go to a blinding-speed rewind back to the "now." It is as if he saw the patterns of misfortune unfolding before him.

    For Brother Jaume, it is almost as if he gained some semblance of clarity. Sure enough, as he is about to rechamber his foot for a second kick, he sees AO1 was actually ready to push his crowbar against Jaume's foot to force his knee up into his face. Brother Jaume lets him, but as his foot/knee is pushed towards him, the girthy monk is already pivoting in a low, rear somersault aided in balance by his staff to come to a controlled prone position totally face down. He thrusts forward like an attacking lizard on the ground with a punch at AO1's knee. It is not an effective attack, but AO1 backs up and is startled just enough for Brother Jaume to roll forward and kip up to plant two feet into his opponent's face for 13 NL! AO1 is reeling from the blow.

    With AO1 still standing, Brother Jaume palnts himself in readiness for the inevitable counterattack.

    R2T16: AO1 makes his attack, but Brother Jaume simply uses his staff to go behind the attacking elbow and force his attack to go faster and tighter than expected as Brother Jaume barely moves the main line of his body. It is a classy, classy, goddamn defense that is as much to say, "I own you."

    R2T13: Jens, startled at the aggressor suddenly choking the life out of Nadya, attempts to bolster her quickly diminishing life. He steps away from AO2 (though is now in the square with the energy tether), though doesn't manage to escape his reach, and attempts to manifest more vigor on Nadya without getting crowbared for his efforts.

    R2T12: Mixing low growls and yaps, Maeni starts casting a very long, intricate spell.

    R2T11: Dorn, ever the protector, casts shield of faith on Nadya; a faint, ghostly image of a warhammer with handle upwards infuses Nadya. Then, he takes a wide arc around the grappling pair (because it doesn't make sense he could go through the diagonal between them) and threatens AO3.

    R2T10: AO2 is bothered by the energy tether, not sure what to make of it, but isn't about to let go of a cheap shot when he can take it, but Brother Jaume is surprisingly canny in multiple-combatant fights and blocks the crowbar easily.

    R2T9: Flair, do you concentrate to maintain the energy tether (and therefore do damage to AO2), or drop it and do something else?

    R2T9: Flair abandons the tether, and it disappears in a puff of blue. Flair hops off the stairs for some breathing room, doing a surprsingly fast acro around Corbin and the hard corner. He concentrates for a split second, thinking about how Corbin is so fluid with the crossbow, and then shoots a second tether at the Bag Lady (which misses and dissipates). As he does so, he tepes the collective, though the message is for one member in particular.

    R3T25: Corbin, satisfied that Nadya is now out of danger due to his timely intervention, switches focus to one of the foes pummeling Jaume, striding with quick, silent movements to slam the butt of his crossbow into the back of the man's neck for 15. The man just barely manages to keep his feet, but won't keep them much longer.

    R3T19: Nadya steps out of reach of the apostle nearest her, staring with a mixture of anger and fear at the strangler, and turns into the misty form of herself.

    R3T18: AO3 seems confused, then turns to Dorn and hits him in the right foot for 1 mod. He then spryly bypasses the older man to then try to pass AO1 to get a southern position on Brother Jaume. Having been an opening, Brother Jaume puts a left elbow in the man's ribs for 14 NL.

    R3T17: Brother Jaume, you now have three apostles surrounding you. You used PA and nonlethal unarmed last round (and as an AOO off-turn) effectively. What do you do?

    R3T17: “Gentlemen! Three against one. That’s hardly sporting! Well let’s see if I can even the odds.” His quarterstaff blurs as he spins in a tight circle striking out at the apostles surrounding him. Against AO1, his staff cracks the man's right elbow for 13. Then, into AO3's belly for 12. Holding the staff against the floor and AO3, Brother Jaume does a forward somersault - one hand braced on the staff - with a downward spinning axe kick that hits AO2 from behind in the back for 10 NL before the monk recovers postures and staff. AO1 and AO3 slump to the ground as their crowbars loudly clatter on the stone floor. AO2 remains.

    R3T13: Stepping out of reach of the remaining apostle, Jens decides to try his earlier plan on this "Bag Lady." He firsts strengthens his will using his power, increasing his potency if not his reserves of energy. Appearing on his left shoulder is a tiny creature that seems fienidish. It has a hulking frame with spines, wings, great horns (all for its little size), and wrapped a couple times around its body and digging in to draw blood that never quites drops off of its frame is a barbed chain. It immediately begins whispering in Jens' ear while also giving him telepathic advice ...
    Spoiler: Jens
    Show
    ...dark advice. Fell wisdom that surprises the compassionate healer with its messages of cruel observations, sadistic sensations, and tyrannical goals.

    OOC: In other news, it takes a SwA to deactivate or reactivate telepathy, not a FA .... but you had a SwA available.
    Jens then sends a warning to the collective.

    "There will be *enslave them* a guest joining us in the *kill the quarrelsome* collective shortly so I will *feast on their dying minds* be halting communication for a *take over the Asylum* while."

    And with that last, the telepathy ends, and you find that while you feel you each sense a connection to Jens, you no longer hear any telepathic voices .... for now.
    With that done, and the telepathy of the collective and the strange external voice silenced, Jens reaches out psionically at the Bag Lady's fractured mind. Her fractured mind is her strength, though, and is disparate enough that he is unable to force her into the collective.

    R3T12: Maeni, you finish casting summon monster I! Where do you place what type of creature? What do you command it to do? What do you do for your actions this round?

    R3T12: To ensure the downfall of the Bag Lady, a dog appears near her. Maeni whistles aggressively at the dog and shouts "Keep her down!"
    Spoiler: Puppy!
    Show

    The golden tinged dogue de bordeaux barks threateningly at the woman, and a faint glow limns is muzzle as it goes to bite, but can't quite get at the spry harpy.

    Maeni then steps aside and throws a new ray of fire that AO2 dodges.

    R3T11: Dorn casts a spell on himself and then peers cautiously at the Bag Lady. "I sense the chaos within you, old woman. It is faint, but it ... is ... enough." As he finishes his statement, he holds his warhammer "pointing" to her, as it were, and he is limned with a faint light.
    Spoiler: Brother Jaume, Flair, Nadya
    Show
    He cast divine favor. That is not the limning effect, as that would have happend immediately and DF doesn't normally have a visual display, so the faint light-up of weapon and body is something else, but seems relatively similar - though a whole body variation - of what happened with the puppo's glowing snout.

    R3T10: AO2 tries to acrobatically extricate himself from his current predicament, but Corbin pecks at his left hamstring as he turns for 16, which is enough to drop him.

    R3T9: Flair, what do you do? Only the Bag Lady appears to be an active combatant.

    R4T25: Taking a moment to gawk at the spinning stick play in front of him, Corbin ducks past Jaume to put some pressure on the Bag Lady. She completely dodges his shot.

    R4T19: Nadya's misty form floats up to 5' off the ground and towards the wall above the pallet that the Bag Lady emerged from. Then, from her, arc several weak lines of lightning, a more visible form of what was hard to see in the tower fight against the oneirogen yesterday. The Bag Lady dodges the weak, sparse electricity in this area. Even the golden dog leaps out of the way.

    R4T17: Brother Jaume, if you can see the weak blue line of boxes surrounding Nadya, that is the area that is within the weak electricity field she is generating as little mini-lightning bolts zap here and there (and without thunder). The celestial dog and the Bag Lady were able to stay completely safe, despite being in the field. What do you do?

    You can go into the electrical field if you want to get to the Bag Lady, but if you do, you need to roll a Ref save.

    R4T17: BJ grasps his holy symbol and chants a spell, followed by a loud prayer: “O, wise and just Erastil, grant me a boon so that I may defeat your enemies and protect the righteous!” His [yet to be determined weapon] glows with an angry light.

    He then makes his way straight past the table and chairs and Dorn and forward five feet to stop to the left of the celestial hound and opposite the bag lady but not immediately adjacent. “Surrender now, or face my wrath!” he bellows at the bag lady, but given in a manner more matter-of-factly than with an intent to truly intimidate.

    An arc of lightning travels around to include Brother Jaume, but he bats it with his wooden staff, the iron shodding attracting the lightning, but the wood of the staff acting as an insulator so that the arc is then deflected away from him from the shodding.

    R4T13: Feeling the Bag Lady’s mind skitter away from his mental grasp much as she is physically dodging his allies attacks Jens grins. He had loosened his shackles, she would not escape, it was just a matter of time. Jens reaches out to the Bag Lady’s mind again, this time his mental construct is not a mere hand, but barbed chains. Such a thing is not witnessed by anyone, but Jens can't stifle the smile he feels growing on his face when his barbed chain construct is exactly what ensnares her. The Bag Lady is now in collective!

    R4T12.1: The golden mastiff gets a jolt for 2 electricity, and it moves forward to bite the bag lady, but the crone keeps it at bay.

    She takes a good look at the old woman, but unfortunately Maeni's training doesn't seem to cover anything observed by the Bag Lady's actions. Definitely a physical type, whatever she is .... which, outside of engineers and spelunkers, doesn't help her.

    R4T11: Dorn closes the gap and swings at her, smacking her left elbow for 14 even as his hammer seems to glow a little brighter with the impact. "She is a creature of wild, villainous intent. A savage of low cunning no better than a demon given human form, if that helps anyone."

    R4T9: Flair had little in the way of options. Closing in was a stupid idea; even if he had enough hubris to ignore Wren's testimony (and how hard she hit Nadya), there was too much debris to get close enough. Instead, he takes a few steps forward an once against tries his ranged attacks; hoping to land another purchase. But all it was was hope as the tether misses and winks out of existence.

    End Round 4, Begin Round 5 ...

    R5T30:
    The Bag Lady shakes off the last of the remnants of her nausea. She looks at Dorn and then does a brilliant fakeout that the man just barely misconstrues. SHe seems to punch and he counters, but at the last instant she takes the expected counter and spins Dorn around so she now has him in a sleeper hold from behind, and presses a thumb at a point behind his ear so as to now have him grappled and still do 16 mod. Unlike Nadya, who seemed to wither under the pressure of the hold, in Dorn's case something is different - he is in pain, but seems to be fighting for air in a way that Nadya was not.

    R5T17: Brother Jaume seeing another member of his flock hurt by this creature, growls low in his throat as his form writhes and grows quickly to a huge proportions. His suddenly larger quarterstaff stabs out in rapid succession. The first shot is a numbing blow to her right bicep in hopes she releases Dorn, and she almost does but holds firm, but only after taking 22. The second shot, delivered like a massive pool cue hits the same area for 16, but still she holds fast. A roundhouse punch follows that grazes her in the side of the stomach for 9. Her arm is shattered, she spits up blood, but only madness keeps her standing and still holding Dorn! She does look like she is terrified of the giant Brother Jaume, but still she does not relent.

    As the heroes move around along the southern wall, Jens hears something, and he notices that Dorn hears something too as they look at each other. Looking at the southern wall, the sketches attached there seem to be fluttering in the breeze. But there is no breeze.

    "Get ready," says Dorn loud enough for the party to hear, as Jens doesn't understand the spooky significance. "There's a haunt a-comin!"

    Begin Round One ...

    R1T28: Before the group can even discuss some sense of a plan, Nadya goes flying ahead of everyone and catching something to the north she flies there calling out, "I got Onny-urgins up here! Three." The sound of her electric field beginning can be heard, even to the point where it sound like maybe she actually got something.

    R1T21: Maeni, your heart is still stirring from your own previous bless, and it seems that Jens' own strange magic likewise still gives you vitality. What do you do?

    R1T21: Maeni says something in an odd language...
    Spoiler: Draconic
    Show
    "Feel the might!"
    Still shielded by both her own actions and Jen's, Maeni starts casting again.

    R1T19: Dorn looks to Brother Jaume, "Haunt to the south. Bomb it with positive." And with that he heads north, where he hits O3 for 8.

    R1T18: O2 rises to attack Nadya, and Nadya has no weapon handy. It swings with a fist but misses.

    R1T17: Flair, you can hear battle joined to the north in the room. Where you rare standing has debris, but is not difficult terrain. What do you do?
