    R15T21: Stepping closer to the fight, Maeni flicks her fingers with a word as a spark of electricity jumps toward Zandalus, but it misses wildly from all of the distractions.

    R15T19: Dorn takes out the syringe and goes to stick Brother Jaume in the arm, but not before Zandalus hits Dorn weakly in the chest with his mace (doing no damage). Dorn presses the plunger, and Brother Jaume is fully healed. Dorn drops the syringe to the deck to shatter.

    R15T17: What does Flair do?

    R15T17: Flair runs up, getting into position. "Not in this iteration. You've seen it, haven't you?" he says as he advances. "How sometimes the walls are suddenly off shade, and the people around you have been swapped out? And how the new people sometimes don't notice the change?"

    There is absolutely nothing that can yet provide a clue. You don't get a Knowledge-roll-always-reveal-regardless-of-data roll. Instead, I did the roll for you (which I have noted on my battle tracker) and it will guide what you know as things become apparent.

    R15T16: “This ends now, Zandalus!” shouts Brother Jaume. He steps to the west and his skin ripples and swells as he grows large once more. He attacks Ulver at 10’ reach with a flurry of savage powerful blows and kicks. He misses with the staff, and his kick skips off of an unseen forcefield screening Zandalus.
    Spoiler: Brother Jaume
    Show
    That spur of wall that Corbin is hiding behind keeps Brother Jaume from getting a 5' free move to the NW, so he can only do that due west, but still has room to enlarge.

    R15T15.5: Ulver's wide-eyed countenance stays true .... on the left side of his face. On the right side of his face, however, he takes on a very cruel look. Despite being hounded by a giant with a stick and a smaller man with a hammer, Ulver studies the young, bespectacled man that seems to have inconvenienced him in some way. The two-faced nature of his look is terrifying. He seems to concentrate on something, but still wary of those threatening, and then at the end he gives his full focus to (or in a very real way at) Jens. Jens screams as his mind is overwhelmed with more information rolling off of Zandlus than he can process, and takes 15 mental damage.
    Spoiler: Flair
    Show
    Until this point, you knew that Ulver had to be some type of psychic, psychically sensitive, or even psionic given just the bread crumb of clues that have led to this point. The total lack of visible components might throw some people, but not you. When you recognized that he obviously used a direct assault psychic attack, most likely mind thrust or the like, it is very clear that with Ulver's brilliant mind that he is not just a psychic in terms of anyone who has psychic power, but in nomenclature what is termed a "psychic" .... of the various known practitioners of psychic magic, the "psychic" is given that term not because they are generic, but because they are the true masters of the power of thought and emotion. With Jens seemingly distracted from a previous battle, it is very likely that Jens is at particular risk.

    Meanwhile, there is something else Ulver was doing that didn't strike you as necessarily "psychic" and might bear more study on Flair's next round...

    R15T15: Corbin, you had just run into position, and haven't really given yourself a chance to actually hide. Your crossbow is currently unloaded. Brother Jaume is also super-sized, which means if you popped out from behind your hiding point, you would have to do so by going NW (or attempt to snipe in position after hiding). What do you do?

    R15T14: Panting after the mental damage he took, Jens tries to clear his head as he glares at Ulver. Puppet or not, that hurt, and it's hard to emotionally separate Ulver from the actions he is likely made to do. Jens calls out to his allies, "He is being controlled by something. If his mental attack came from his controller, breaking their connection may weaken him." Jens then reaches out over the Collective to Ulver and pulls at his life force to restore himself.

    He made his save, so you steal 5 from Ulver, and in turn give yourself 5.

    R16T21: Running seriously low on power, Maeni keeps snapping fingers, trying to lock on Ulver, and misses again.

    R16T19: Dorn calls for Torag's favor and attempts an onslaught now that Corbin is flanking. The first attack is wide, but the next attack - aided by Maeni's bless - finally finds a home as his warhammer skips across Ulver's head for 15. "I care not whether he is possessed or no, for the man himself is harmed by a holy power that burns true against evil."

    R16T17: Flair, the war totem definitely seems to have had a beneficial effect for Dorn, if nobody else (yet). What do you do?

    So, it seems that Ulver - more out of canny insanity and internal cunning than any true "training" - has a skill set in combat reminiscent of a more cautious tactician. And it is definitely a combatant. As you see the manner in which he fights (high BAB), but is focused on Jens (not to the exclusion of anyone else, mind you), you get the feeling that the closest equitable skill set or type of fighting would be an admixture of warrior and scoundrel known as a "slayer." You might be able to figure out more, but you have to have more data, i.e., observe him in battle longer for a more in-depth analysis.

    R16T17: Flair continued, his tone relaxed as he walks slowly into view. "It gets difficult to keep them separate, doesn't it? The various versions of events. The who's and why's keep shifting, after all. But in the moment, you don't notice, not until something jars you back, when you find unignorable evidence something's wrong. There's a reason for that, you know."

    R16T16: BJ returns to his normal size some ten feet from Ulver. He swings his quarter staff in a tight circle before he steps forward growing large again, but both strikes miss yet again, with only the second attempt skipping off of Ulver's magical protection.

    R16T15.5: Ulver steps away from Brother Jaume and Corbin (though still in reach of the former) to place himself in-between Dorn and Flair. His face still has that strange, split aspect - one half placid, the other half cruel (which relaxes for only a split second) - and looks to Flair, now seemingly studying him in lieu of Jens. "Yes, yes. I see different versions of you, too!" he says as he reaches out and touches Flair's left hand.

    Flair feels intense and horrific pain as his limbs twist and buckle, while his body contorts uncontrollably, shifting and warping. Flair takes 5 NL, 1 DEX damage, 1 CON damage, and his speed is reduced to 20'. In addition, the pain is bad enough that Flair loses the war totem.

    R16T14: Jens winces as he sees the damage done to Flair. He has no idea what the cause is, though part of him wonders if Ulver is somehow forcing Flairs muscles to contract with their full force something that the brain and pain receptors try to limit as it is quite damaging to the body. Whilst thinking over the unexplained phenomena, Jens continues to drain Ulver. This fight will soon be over if Jens can continue his attack unimpeded, it's only a question of how much damage Ulver will cause before he goes down. Ulver feels the pain much more fully this time (10), even as Jens is fully healed and Flair is able to shake off 3 NL.

    R17T21: Moving closer to battle, Maeni adds toward Flair, "Grit your teeth, it's not over. It'll keep going for around half a minute!" She focuses her attention on the psychic, to be sure she doesn't miss his next action. She was so focused on helping Flair that she didn't notice her firing hand accidentally drop, for at the moment of release her hand had dropped and she was just brushing her leg, and electricity courses through her. While it doesn't do physical harm, it does cause unseen injury as she takes 2 DEX damage.

    R17T19: Dorn looks to Corbin and says, "Take my place," as he sidles to the southwest. He attacks with a single hammer stroke this time, hitting Ulver in the side of the chest for 8.

    R17T17: Flair, the pain is playing havoc with your skeletal system, weakening you across the board. Even your face feels like its on fire from this horror. Roll a Fort save, then declare your action.

    R17T17: Flair drops to one knee in pain from agony enveloping his body (he takes 6 NL, 1 DEX, 1 CON, and -10' speed). His voice, though wracked in pain, still held the steel of his determination. "The only 'me' that matters is the me I choose to be. And I choose to stop you." And with that, he stood and spoke his psuedo-Celestial and punched him in the face for 8.

    R17T16: “By Erastil’s Hairy Balls, why won’t you die!”shouts the frustrated Brother Jaume. He steps forward as he shrinks down to normal size to flank with Flair and attacks with powerful staff strikes. His first strike beats against magical protections, where the strange deflective ability of Zandalus' magic throws the monk's second attack off even further.

    R17T15.5: Ulver steps to the side and goes back to studying Jens. That is when Flair realizes that it seems he didn't hit Ulver nearly as hard as he thought he had. In fat, while blood trickles from his nose, it seems that Flair actually only did 3 mod, and not 8 like he had thought. Ulver returns to studying Jens and after carefully concentrating he sends more mental energy down the line to the psionicist (23 mental damage, and 2 bleed)!

    R17T15: Corbin, Uver moved away from you (and out of flank). What do you do?

    R17T14: Jens would like to say that he stoically bore the pain of the most recent mental assault, but that would be a lie. Jens whimpered as the assault landed on his mind and he felt something crack in spite of the non-physical nature of the attack as blood started flowing down his ears.

    Jens started to retreat back down the hallway and into the nearest room and out of sight muttering ”Don’t break. Don’t break. Don’t break.” to himself over and over as he does so. Part of him hopes that Ulver requires line of sight to attack him another part just hopes he will get distracted with someone else. Most of all, Jens is glad that his drain doesn’t require anything more than being in the collective. The tactic must have been successful, as Ulver suffers a drain of 10 and Jens receives the same healing.

    End Round 17, Begin Round 18 ...

    R18T21: Suffering from her former shock but lacking other options, Maeni keeps sending sparks. I'm slowing us down...

    R18T19: Seeing the "softer" members of the party in possible peril as the warriors stack to the west, Dorn tries to move acrobatically past Brother Jaume but Ulver catches him with the mace in the stomach as he goes by, but not actually hurting the saint. Dorn continues past Nadya - and notes that Ulver doesn't attack again - and then holds the breech to the eastern passageway to protect Maeni and Jens (wherever he is). Dorn attacks, his warhammer skipping off of Ulver's forcefield.

    R18T17: Flair, you are in pain ... the pain did not stop. However, through force of will you did keep the spell from further affecting you for a few more seconds. Even in these dire straits, you realize your ability to note your environment is no longer "limited" because of your current stress, but you see, hear, and sense things as easily as you otherwise would, despite being doubled over in pain. What do you do?

    R18T16: Brother Jaume move quickly to the SW before he form swells again to heroic proportions. His quarter staff flicks past over Corbin to strike at Ulver's right thigh, possibly causing a break, for 19 mod. Had he been wearing actual armor, instead of an armor-like spell, perhaps it would've saved him. Brother Jaume is committed to the psychic's destruction and breaks the lower back of the man.

    R18T15: Corbin, Ulver is down, possibly dead (you're not sure). What do you do?

    R18T15: Corbin starts to look over Ulver, but he is creeped out as his wounds and orifices begin spewing clouds of thick, yellow smoke. More out of a sense of self-preservation Corbin backs up onto his feet.

    R18T14: Jens, you are hiding in the dark of a choked off passageway. You know of Jens' demise, and the death of a human of that power was disturbing, even though you were able to fight off most of the horror of that reality. What do you do?

    R19T21: Maeni closes the distance, both to stay near her allies, but also to study what's happening to the body.

    R19T19: "I will try to find Jens; tepe or call if something happens," says Dorn as he moves out. He heads east along the passageway and sees Jens. He steps up to Jens and prays to Torag to heal Jens' current injuries, putting a hand on him and healing Jens fully.

    R19T17: Flair squints at the rising mist, trying to determine its cause and any danger it might bring, even as he senses his war totem fail. And there it is, like a shining beacon in his mind ... vast wealth of knowledge beyond anything that would normally be his to command with his mortal mind .... and even more parts of it that seem sequestered from him. But he is filled with a dread certainty of what is to come.

    Flair, take a look at the information I DM you, then take your action ...

    Because you aren't in the stress of combat, I doubt everyone has something specific and useful they would like to do, and most people are out of anything they would have with which to "do something on their turn." In reality, you would be "ready for anything" but you would be listening to Flair. Only Jens really has a thing that he specifically wanted to do.

    R19T17: Flair, fighting off the pain, noted the mists and in a rapid fire chain of connections understood. "Oh, cazzo!" he swore in Infernal. He then turned to the rest of the party. "Okay, this is bad. We aren't being overlaid with the Dimension of Dreams like I thought ..."

    R19T14: Jens, not wanting to waste Ulver's "sacrifice," prepares Flair and Corbin for any possible continued aggression. Both Corbin and Flair feel a buoying of health from Jens.

    R20T17: As the mist grows and fills the space with Zandalus' corpse, Flair grimaces in pain from Ulver's spell, still affecting him even in the psychic's death (7 NL, 1 DEX, 1 CON; he is now crippled and can no longer move from his spot).
    "...we've been transported to it, and our recently deceased friend here was keeping the Tatterman at bay, and the Tatterman is an ancient menace who is not to be trifled with."

    R20T12: Maeni feels her bless fail, and the little bit of battle lust and ability to overcome fearful things that folks were enjoying now goes away.

    R21T17: Flair still suffers from the pain and wracking malformations (5 NL, 1 DEX, 1 CON), even as his body fights against it. The mists now fill a 5' burst around Ulver's body.
    "Judging by the mist rising from the body, it's likely to become the host for the Tatterman, so we need to disable the body before it wakes up."

    R22T17: Flair feels the last gasps of the terrible spell (5 NL, 1 DEX, 1 CON). He is able to move his feet again. The base of the pain (NL and ability damage) is still with him, but his flexibility has returned."Someone with a blade, cut his head off while we have the chance!"

    He then summons his tether and stabs it into the corpse's heart; if this was going to be the avatar of the Tatterman, a steady source of damage would be their best bet. At this point, a 5-foot-square of thick yellow mist surrounds Ulver's body, so that anyone outside the mist can't see the body anymore.

    Brother Jaume, Maeni, Corbin, Jens .... do you do anything to prepare .... move to surround the body? Run in terror? Pray for deliverance?

    Semi-Retcon (filling in gaps, not replacing any of the time marks above ... these are additive, not replacing or overwriting)...

    R19T16:
    Seeing Flair’s distress , Brother Jaume moves forward to render him aid. “Rest easy now son. Let me ease your suffering.”

    Over the next several rounds, Brother Jaume gives a calming touch to Flair. It doesn't help fight off the spell, but it does alleviate a lot of the pain that Flair suffers from it.

    R19T15: Corbin grabs his crossbow, and then backs off from the mist just a little. He still ends up in the mist, just not at "ground zero" with Ulver's corpse.

    R20T14-13: Jens and Dorn return together, with the latter putting himself in a peculiarly vulnerable position against the wall in the corner. Jens realizes that his vigor is solidly on Maeni for close to another two minutes, so he performs vigor/ Spirit of Many on himself and Dorn.

    Flair finishes first speech.

    In the following few seconds ...

    Calling her claws, Maeni decides to surrender her lust for mysteries for the sake of safety, and beheads the corpse with them. (It is easy to forget that while she is no warrior, she is actually among the stronger members of the party!) "Don't we risk seeing the Tatterman in another body?"

    Flair practically melted into Brother Jaume's touch in the past few rounds. The madman's spell had weakened him quite a bit and left him with aches all over his body, which Jaume was easing away. He then responded to Maeni somewhat loopily (as the removal of pain is sometimes akin to a drug in it's own right). "I don't really know; the tomes said that he "would be a portal to the Tatterman", which I thought meant he'd become an avatar for it, but it looks like it might be a tad more literal."

    When Flair finishes speaking, and lacking a blade of his own, Brother Jaume moves forward and does his best to reduce the severedhead of the corpse to paste by pounding it into the ground with his staff. It might not be paste, but Ulver's head is now completely mashed in.

    And yet, for all of that, the party only created more holes, wounds, cuts, and openings for mist to come pouring through faster and faster.

    And there, within the mists, only Dorn, Flair, and Jens sees the danger.

    Surprise Round ...

    S22: Only those three barely notice in the cloying mists, the figure standing where Ulver lay, but everyone feels a wash of terror! "Thank you for freeing me, now embrace my reward!" comes the voice within the fog.

    Everyone needs to make a Will save vs. a fear effect (Label: Fear effect #1)!

    He makes a quick motion, and Nadya and Dorn see Jens get attacked a small blade of some type. Jens gets slashed across the left shoulder for 5 to his THP. The terrifying man-thing steps south, out of view of Maeni, Nadya, and Jens.

    Jens, you were terrified when he spoke, and now you are actually performing some manner of excretory function when he/it attacked you!

    S20: Jens, roll a SAN check. Meanwhile, Jens moves in pure panic down the hallway, but instead of running as far as he can, he instead stops at the first door on his right, possibly mulling over in his terror-addled mind about hiding in a side closet.

    S19: Flair, you feel your blood turn to ice, and yet it has the aspect of stealing your body against the initial sense of fear. And yet, as you see this terrifying creature in the mists, it speaks of something you as a mortal were never meant to see. What do you do?

    S19: Flair wished he was anywhere but here; the battles to get here had taken a lot of the pep from his step, but if the end had come, then he'd be damned if he didn't go out swinging. "Embrace this, stronzo!" Flair punches the Tatterman in the side of his right thigh, but finds he did not penetrate the terror's tough skin.

    S18: Dorn has beads of sweat as the junior paladin senses an unfamiliar feeling ... fear. But unlike Jens, he doesn't run, and he doesn't give into dawning madness. Instead, he points his hammer at the Tatterman. "Torag, protect me." His warhammer strikes at the Tatterman as he steps into a better position, finding that the Tatterman is very tough indeed, when his hammer skips off the horror's hand.

    End Surprise Round, Begin Round 1 ...

    R1T24:
    Nadya casts shield on herself, but otherwise keeps her position.

    R1T22: The Tatterman begins whispering sibilantly but unintelligibly, but makes no noticeable attacks. That only seems to make him even creepier.

    R1T21: Corbin, you manage to be unaffected by the creepy voice, but you can't see its source, either. What do you do?

    R1T21: "M-maybe we should get out of here, regroup and plan. M-maybe theres a book or something." Corbin mutters aloud, managing to keep himself from simply bolting. He edges through the mist, trying to get closer to the entrance. He moves 5' NE, and though he wanted to move 10' E, he finds that he actually is barred by rubble, has to go through Nadya's space (she is unthreatened), and then just east of her. He then reloads his crossbow. The one thing he notes is that he has yet to see whatever was fighting in the mist.

    R1T20: A terrified Jens opens the door he sees there, hoping that anyone (or anything) chasing him would assume he just ran for the hills. He steps into a ruined sideroom that is full of rubble but with barely enough cleared for him to enter. Perfect for hiding.

    R1T19: Flair, the mists partially conceal this monstrosity, but you think you may see some similarities with something you've dealt with before. It is that familiarity that probably subconsciously helped Flair from feeling true dread (though he is still affected by it on a fundamental level, just not shaking in his gaudy red boots).

    Flair drew back his hand, incredibly frustrated. Well, if punching wasn't going to work, looks like he had to fall back on the tether. Taking a step back, he summoned his tether once again and tried his luck at the opponent that he can no longer see, knowing that his tether missed.

    R1T18: Dorn calls out, "I'll not run, Corbin, for other to be slaughtered, but shall meet my fate here or earn Torag's reward!"

    And with that mighty oath, Brother Jaume sees Dorn's warhammer connect with the Tatterman's skull for 18. He continues his inspired onslaught by then hitting the Tatterman in the right elbow for 17. It is now likely that the Tatterman may focus on Dorn, as the Tatterman even seems bothered just by Dorn's presence.

    R1T17: Maeni, you are shaken. Even fighting off the bulk of the terror it could represent, just seeing the Tatterman was a fundamental fail of your belief systems. The Tatterman stepped back out of view. What do you do?

    R1T10: Brother Jaume takes a few swipes at the dream horror with his staff, not really expecting to do damage. The palpable fear radiating from the thing however lending a frantic strength to his blows. Something seems to deflect his first strike, but the second strike hits the Tatterman solidly in the chest, but for only 10 mod.

    End Round 1, Begin Round 2 ...

    R2T24:
    Nadya floats up and over top of Dorn, then breathes at the Tatterman to do a very weak 1 electricity.

    R2T22: The Tatterman's sibilant whispering, almost a hideous song sung in sotto voce, has had apenetrating effect over the past few seconds, but especially for Brother Jaume, Flair and Maeni who - even in battle - are feeling drowsy and inattentive. Then, to the surprise of the three heroes closest to him, he (defensively) casts a spell.

    I need Will saves vs. magic sleep from the following persons:
    Maeni, Corbin, Brother Jaume, Dorn, & Flair.

    R2T22 (Cont'd): Brother Jaume fell hard and easily. Corbin had a little more fight in him, but his mind just isn't strong enough. But Maeni, so strong of mind, was already terrified and feeling drowsy from the strange whispers previously and fought the hardest .... but like Brother Jaume and Corbin, Maeni is the third of the three to drop to the ground (all three loosing their grips on held objects), breathing heavily as if in a deep stupor.

    R2T20: Jens uses his geokinesis on the nearby rubble to begin hiding himself.

    R2T19: Things were going south fast. He could run, but from what he knew of the Tatterman, that would be a fruitless endeavor. Unlike him, the Tatterman probably didn't need sleep, so even if he found a place to regain his strength, he could get them while they were most vulnerable. It was theoretically possible that whatever kept the Chapel free from the nightmares would work on him, but a) he'd be risking the lives of everyone there on a maybe, and b) even if it was the case, he'd never make it in time.

    No, If there was any hope of dealing with this thing, it had to be fought here and now. And as much as it pained him to admit it, Flair was simply in no shape to assist in that directly, as between the stress of the previous fights and the madman's lingering spell, he was completely tapped. It might take more than a shot or to to drop him, but his ability to fight back was extremely compromised. So he'd have to help indirectly. He then shook Brother Jaume back awake, "No time for that now! You've gotta get back up and hit that guy! He's a doppleganger, like the Greys we met before. He's just really into mummy chic, it seems."

    R2T18:

    "Good work, Flair. Now wake up the other two. Get out and away from this mist, it's not doing us any favors."
    Dorn attacks with an onslaught again, but this time the Tatterman is readied and dodges both blows with impossible agility.

    R2T10: Brother Jaume, you must have briefly fainted or something, for you woke up listening to Flair speaking to you (you woke up as he was talking to you). Your quarterstaff is on the ground next to you, and you are prone. The Tatterman is deftly dodging Dorn's dimple-dinger. What do you do?

    R2T10: Brother Jaume gathers himself and rolls to his feet, taking care to defend against possible attacks of opportunity from the Tatterman. It is a valiant attempt, and to be truthful, it seems like a clumsy attack on the Tatterman's part, but Brother Jaume's defense only goes so far as to undo the fact he was on the ground, and the creature looks like it is just about to just barely cut the monk's hand when Dorn's hammer knocks aside the weapon off course. Just that little act of saving Brother Jaume from harm seems to somehow invigorate Dorn in some small way.

    End Round 2, Begin Round 3 ....

    R3T24:
    Nadya continues to hover over Dorn and defensively casts a spell, then aims point blank at the Tatterman and shoots - unmolested in her ranged attack by the horror. The Tatterman gets hit in the left shoulder by a coruscating beam, taking a 1 STR penalty.

    R3T22: Brother Jaume, Nadya, and Dorn can see that the heavy wound Dorn gave against the Tatterman starts to close (5). The Tatterman then carefully casts a spell on his weapon, and the same three can see that after images seem to follow the razor he is holding. He then takes to the air himself, just lifting off the ground, but avoiding any counterattacks.

    R3T20: Jens completes his burying himself under rubble (safely .... hopefully), and tries to control his terrified breathing.

    R3T19: Flair, you successfully saved Brother Jaume from a possible coup de grace, and while you didn't see Dorn swing the hammer, you did see his hammer knock aside the Tatterman's blade as the monk regained his feet. You are still concentrating on the war totem. What do you do, especially having heard other friendlies drop somewhere out of sight of you?

    R3T19: Flair abandoned his totem as he shuffled around his allies in the mist; the totem helped them fight better, but those that had fallen victim to the sleep weren't really in fighting shape at the moment; he'd set the totem back up once his allies were. He moves up a little and sees Maeni, and with the time remaining he is able to awaken Maeni and set the war totem back up.

    R3T18: Dorn swings at Tatterman with abandon. His first swing is wild, but the second grazes the Tatterman in the left shoulder again for 11.

    R3T17: Maeni, you were just awoken (slapped awake, actually). You are on the ground, surrounded by mists. Your claws are no no longer manifested. You are still fearful of the Tatterman, to be sure. What do you do?

    R3T17: Maeni gets onto her feet, steps over to Corbin, and wakens Corbin.

    Corbin, you are now awake, prone, and your crossbow is on the ground beside you. Maeni is standing over you, but you can also see Dorn's back through the haze (and Nadya above him).

    R3T10: Brother Jaume, what do you do?
