    R5T10: Flair helps Haru to his feet. Since he is outside the battlezone, I will put Haru in a delay status.

    R5T8: Zarinda, so it's you and Bishop! You are dealing with a stout wound (see sheet). What do you do?

    R5T8: The only way to deal with her wound is for Zarinda to eliminate the source of the problem and so, she tries to fire again but the Gray is once again ready for this and slashes Zarinda and hits her for 9 ... and she gives out a cry of pain and falls unconscious, dropping her nocked bow and arrow.

    R5T5: Patient 601, you've been delaying when Zarinda drops do to an AOO. Do you enter? If so, it will be before the Gray's turn - and consequently before it recovers its AOO. This is important because if you do go in to engage you have to pass through Bishop's square.

    Eric or Haru - who have been delaying, can go as well. First to post gets it.

    Around the corner as he is and with no one saying that Zarinda is actually down, the ashen-faced man delays ...

    End Round 5, Begin Round 6 ...


    R6T19: The Gray turns its hatred towards the little dog. Both claws just graze along the outside of its coat, but it is fine.

    R6T18: Bishop bites at the Gray, but the result is not seen (miss).

    R6T17: Eric, you have been delaying. Now Zarinda is down but getting to her might be dangerous. What do you do?

    R6T17: Eric pushes against the gray with his mind, shouting from the extreme effort. The Gray is suddenly jerked upward into the ceiling for 6, and it falls down, just managing to roll with the fall to keep from getting hurt but still landing prone. Eric's head is faint, and there is a ticklishness at his upper lip. Quickly brushing there he sees that he has a nosebleed (no bleed damage). He suddenly feels weighed down some by his gear.

    You are exhausted, you suffered 1 CON burn, and now you are carrying a Medium load (-3 ACP), in addition to ability/ speed penalties.

    R6T10: Flair moves into the room to where Zarinda lies so he can reach the Gray and goes to do an elbow drop. Even though the Gray is on the ground, its gangly arms are just fine to attack. Instead of going for the man's legs the Gray must be overconfident in thinking it can drop Flair again and it waste time going high ... only to be blocked by Flair's lamellar cuirass. Flair gets to where Zarinda was and goes for an elbow drop but simply smacks hard against its very firm hide.

    You had to use your MA at the start to get into position. You don't have 10' reach, and you can't stay in the same square as Bishop. So, you are now where Zarinda's bleeding form lays.

    R6T9: Haru, Flair just vacated a spot at the entryway, so if you want to move forward there and take potshots at the Gray, that's fine. Alternately, you could reach into Bishop's square and pick up your nunchaku without worry of an AOO. What do you do?

    R6T9.5: Hot-stepping around Haru, the man in the turban reaches the door and cuts down at the Gray with a wicked overhand chop. It holds up its hand instinctively to bat the sword away but gets cut in its upper right arm for 8. All the world save the Grey and what 601 can see of himself shifts slightly out of focus.

    R6T9: Seeing as Haru can't get back to the fight, he simply waits for a chance from his current vantage point.

    End Round 6, Begin Round 7 ...

    R7T19:
    The gray attempts to stand, provoking the expected AOOs: Bishop bites hard but his small mouth can't penetrate the gray's hide. After his elbow drop, Flair did a roll backwards into a plank position and had calculated the timing to spin on his hands on the ground like a gymnast on a "horse" and kicks the gray's right hand as both rise up - Flair landing in a back somersault on his feet, and his target taking 6 from the momentum of a less experienced but smarter fighter. Once it is almost balanced, 601 catches a piece of it across its belly for 7. Blood now streaming from multiple wounds and contusions on the enemy, it looks at what may well be the last three creatures it will ever get to see with its unfathomable eyes. Instead of attacking one of the two men (or the annoying dog), the creature instead swipes towards Flair ... and past him towards his feet, slashing across Zarinda's left lower arm for 6, and blood flowing out of her veins.

    R7T18: Bishop bites hard onto the gray's arm as it retracts from that sadistic attack for 5.

    R7T17: Eric, you no longer have TK over the Gray (see OOC). It is on its feet and obviously badly wounded. Zarinda is down and had just taken another cheap shot, but you cannot physically get to her, and you don't know if she is alive or dead. What do you do?

    Knuckles on deck (she will have to delay), Flair in the hole ...

    R7T10: Flair kicks the grey in the chin for a mighty 15 as its head snaps back, it lifts up and does a somersault and then lands on the ground oddly ... and slightly twitching. Mighty as that was in dropping the bad guy, the chin kick was part of Flair's movement in getting out of the room.

    R7T9: Stepping forward to let Flair pass, the ashen-faced man cuts at the slightly twitching thing and only just barely cutting into its skull for 5 ... enough so that it is no longer even twitching.

    Eric and Haru (only) ... you were delaying. Do you do anything?

    Just as both groups meet together in back, and as they notice that the light is coming from underneath machinery (only a Small creature could get comfortably through), there is a sudden shift and uptic of the light. Not enough to light up the space, but only because the light - equivalent to torchlight - is under the machinery, albeit getting closer.

    Begin Round One ...

    R1T22:
    Sam drops to a prone position right away, pretty much as soon as squeaking is heard. A split-second later there is a tremendous report echoing through the entire chamber, as a bright flash issues forth from the outer, small, tubular end of Sam's "Whitlock." The air is instantly filled with a metallic tang and a light smoke that does not yet impede vision. "Dropped one! It's a big rat! Another one and something with lights for eyes after that!"

    R1T21: Flair, squeaking is coming your way from underneath the machinery. You and Jean left a 10' gap between your groups, and you are otherwise in a flank-line to the machinery. Do you delay or ready something?

    R1T21-20: Flair begins to tap his foot in anticipation of the upcoming foes. Perhaps his tapping helps in drawing something to him, because charging him from underneath the boiler and popping out right in front of him is an R.O.U.S. (though of Bishop's size - not the "titanic" Princess Bride size). Flair calls on his spirit to aid him, and if the agile rat was more careful and not charging it could have dodged. Not to be, and Flair crushes its lower back by spinning up in a modified pike jump and coming down to crush the rat's back (dropping it) with a single blow.

    R1T18: Jean, there is still a strange light from under the boilers and movement. There are no visible enemies. What do you do?

    R1T18: Similarly wary, Jean moves a few feet (5') close to the center of the walkway as possible and does his best to predict where the rats will come from.

    R1T14: Jacqui pulls out her shortsword. "Bishop, go get it!" she orders a little unsurely, not really knowing what commands is good for the dog.

    R1T13: A creature pops up right behind Jean, where he was standing a minute ago, but Jean swings first and misses wildly against the crazy, conical-eye-lighted creature ... something that looks like a cross between a much smaller rat than the other two (size Tiny), but like a creepy mole with several tendrils on its face.

    The thing tries to bite at Jean, but it is so small that just the little bit of closure it needs to make offers Jean another chance. He just barely catches a piece of it for 7. It manages to bite Jean in his shin for 1, but the teeth are so sharp, that it looks like it will continue to bleed.

    R1T11: Haru will slide over to flank the zoog with Jean, and swing his Nunchaku into it with a fairly lacking amount of skill, cold energy enveloping the strike at the final second as it misses the Tiny creature and smacks the floor.

    R1T10: Eric gestures with his hands - not because it is endemic to his special magic, but more as a means of helping him focus. There are visible waves of focus as the air shimmers from his psychic power when he attempts to create a link to the zoog, but the thing resists his telekinesis. Eric does much better than yesterday, though, as he seems unimpeded by this power.

    R1T5: Knuckles moves up behind Haru and with the lightest bit of concentration shoots forth a bile-green ray that hits the side of a boiler for 4 acid.

    R1T4: Bishop, much smaller than everyone else, darts underneath the boiler and comes up to the zoog from the side - attacking from the side and biting for 7. For a little dog, it sure does seem to pack a powerful bite!

    End Round One, Begin Round 2 ...

    R2T22: Echoes of Sam's loud weapon echo off the boilers yet again with a report of fire and smoke that hits the creature and drops it.

    Combat Ends ...

    Surprise Round ...

    Haru focuses on the energy he normally channels through his attacks and instead hurls it at the Ghoul, missing ...

    Begin Round One ...

    R1T24:
    Sam stands 10' directly in front of the ghoul, checks his weapon, takes careful aim, and shoots and a hold hits into the creature's left forearm as it raises its arms to protect itself, getting wounded for 12. The creature howls in pain.

    R1T21-20: Eric doesn't bother with the sport, but Knuckles fearlessly gets right up to the thing and punches it for 6.

    R1T19: Haru finishes off the monster with 6 cold, and the wretch hangs limp.

    Surprise Round ...

    S7: Before the two men even get into the room with the waiting dog, Flair senses something not quite right. This is an arm-across two sets of shoulders carry with the wounded man's legs dragging, but even as the man whipped his arms out of the grasp of Flair and Sam Flair sensed something a bit off ...tactilely. Sure enough, Flair and Sam know stand on either side of a Gray.

    Flair, this is a surprise round and you are able to act. You can only use either a move action (MA) or a standard action (SA), and free actions (FAs), but not swift actions (SwAs), FAA (full-attack actions), or FRA (full-round actions). What do you do?

    S7: Flair realizes the man he's holding isn't what he seems .... and attacks! (Badly.)

    S6: Bishop stands his ground and growls.

    End Surprise Round, Begin Round One ...

    R1T24:
    "GRAY!" shouts Jacqui as a warning, letting Bishop off the leash, drawing her bow, and shooting - missing since she was trying not to hit the ally on each side.

    R1T20: Knuckles towards the back of the room with Eric and Haru looks up and then hustles to get adjacent to the Gray.

    R1T15: Haru, though searching around, had his nunchaku in hand as much out of a legitimate paranoia as anything else. He rushes all the way to the front in front of the door to keep the Gray from escaping, but the Gray claws him along the left buttocks deep - to the bone - for 7 as he goes by. Haru hasn't been feeling well to begin with - he has been showing signs of congestion - and this doesn't help. Still, however brief it might be the Gray has to go through him if it wants to get out AND Haru now happens to be flanking the Gray with Knuckles.

    R1T9: Sam quickly unshoulders his weapon and standing right next to the Gray he shoots his weapon with a roar of flame and smoke to graze the Gray in the left knee for 6. Meanwhile, he calls out defensive suggestions for Haru and Flair, relaxing the grip on his Whitlock to get ready to smash the thing with his rifle.

    R1T7: Flair, you are flanking the Gray with Sam. Haru is blocking the exit, but he is well into the "yellow" (sporting heavy wounds); he is flanking with Knuckles. What do you do?

    R1T7: Flair puts all of his force into a cheap kick right to the thing's right shin for 6, hoping to distract the thing. Still, Flair can't help but notice that the thing seems really fixated on Sam, now.

    R1T6: Bishop moves forward right behind Haru, which has the added benefit of sealing off egress from the room from the other side as well. Bishop whines sympathetically and links Haru's wounded butt to fully heal the wound.

    R1T5: Surrounded and with no chance of getting out right away, the Gray steps over into the corner to negate all chance of flanking and then double-slashes at Sam. The first claw goes horribly against Sam's face and left side of his head for 10. The second claw then slams hard into Sam's right side of the head and along the ear for 7. Sam is in a bad way and he was already in the yellow before, and yet somehow he is still standing.

    R1T4: Jean, what do you do? It will cost you 10' of movement to get down off the ladder.

    R1T4: "Javert! Watch the carrion!" Leaping down from the ladder, Jean slams into the floor painfully for 3 like a turban-topped, armored-coat-wearing sack of garlic bulbs. He draws his scimitar even on the deck, just in case the Gray - who seem to be particularly sadistic (the last one killed Zarinda even though she was already down) - decides to run him down just because he is on the ground.

    You had to climb the ladder to get up, so you did not have your scimitar in hand, and you aren't skilled enough of a warrior (i.e., +1 BAB or higher) to have drawn it as you leapt down. You chose to leap (fluff) instead of just climb down, and you have a negative modifier on Acrobatics and I rolled an '8' for you ... Well, you probably figured your powerful body was athletic enough to jump down the ten feet just fine. It's not like you remembered or not. Well, this is a painful learning curve ... you are not a jumper.

    End Round One, Begin Round 2 ...

    R2T24:
    Jacqui - though having lost LOS to the Gray - sees that the battle is likely to be well in hand and stays in the old linen room to protect/ guard/ watch the chained man.

    R2T20: Knuckles casts a spell and with her great strength stomps on the floor. Ripples of power radiate through the floor to the Gray and knock it prone!

    R2T9: Sam tries to acrobatically get away, but his attempt isn't great and the Gray swipes at him but misses anyway. He retreats down to Eric. "I need help, counselor, if you have the healing to spare."

    He then empties four empty, open-ended cylinders from his rifle and puts in four more and snaps his Whitlock closed.

    Bishop barks threateningly but doesn't move from his position just inside the other room.

    R2T5: The Gray tries to stand up, but Haru and Flair are somewhat ready for this. Haru hits it in the upper back with his nunchaku for 6. Flair tries to do a roundhouse kick and it is wild, ungainly, and he nearly falls. The Gray gets on his feet and his claw slashes hard against Flair's armor.

    On the subject of little problems...

    After climbing the ladder one-handed (very clumsily, I might add, and nearly falling), Jean stares flint-eyed at the ghoul for a moment. He thinks of the mockery of man this thing represents, taking 1 Sanity, and so overcome with anger he wildly cuts down towards its prostate-face with a star-lit scimitar before Jean goes ass over tea kettle into the large washtub. As he falls he momentarily tries to grab the top edge of the washbasin ... and the scimitar drops (harmlessly) into the ghoul's lap while Jean slams down hard on his back next to the ghoul for 1! The ghoul wraps his hand tightly around the scimitar's handle.

    Begin Round One ...

    R1T16: Jean, you are prone at the bottom of the washbasin right now. There is no real room to maneuver. The washbasin is 10' tall. The ghoul has your scimitar. What do you do?

    R1T16: Baring teeth to match any grey wolf, Jean pulls a dagger from his belt and lunges at the ghoul with spittle flying. A brief wind, like a moment just before a thunderstorm, fills the air and Jean's dagger makes for the ghoul's gut, but his back hurts and he nearly pulls a muscle with that miss. "Scrape what skin remains from it's skull, Javert."

    R1T15.9: Javert flies down, hovering over the ghoul and pecks at its skull for 2 ... and that is all that it needed to do end the ghoul. The ghoul slumps, releasing the scimitar.

    Because the curtain was put up to block the view of the creepy wall from any other people's wanting to keep their sanity, Björn fumbles into it and has troubles with it before knocking the curtains down. He finally gets up to the wall and nails his longsword into it for 3 mod damage, the majority of his swing soaking up the damage with its tough, spongy material.

    The eye's pupil sprouts fangs and bites at Björn, unable to get past his armor. After attacking, the eye-mouth screams "Who am I become?" in three overlapping, drowned-sounding voices, then cries a pint of that pungent fluid (ammonia).

    R1T23: Haru closes in on the wall and strikes at it with his Nunchaku, aiming to shatter it with a single clean strike. He spins his nunchaku around, intoning words of power while with his off-hand he gestures. The entire hallway is filled with a type of static energy at his actions before Haru finally strikes the thing with his weapon, sonic energy thrumming around it. He hits the thing, realizing it is NOT hardened like stone but pliant like a fungus or plant, and he does no damage.

    Jean, you know this by now, of course. Björn, Haru uses an extremely rare and wildly unstable magical concept called "spherecasting," and the nature of it is such that you recognize that he barely contains what is Wild Magic. He used a talent known as energy blade, allowing him to sheathe his weapon in a type of studied energy, and this talent is part of a greater magical sphere known as Destruction.

As soon as he levels his aim the wall bites at him, and his armor just barely holds. Björn shoots, easily hitting, but the crystal doesn't seem to have done anything (and then evaporates).

    R4T23: After a short period of thought....three seconds or so, Haru has a flash of inspiration: that the haunt is an unquiet spirit that likely came from the psychic impressions of those who were here before. Are there other arcane imprints found in other spirits that may provide weal where this one seeks woe? The very act of opening his mind up to the possibility sends a chill up his spine and raises the hairs at the back of his neck. It is at this point that Haru realizes it is not possibility that enlivens him, but the impossible. For in his mind there is a faint, chill whisper, "The stones of the earth itself rebel at this abomination...."

    With that voice that only he can hear, from a creature no doubt jealous at another of its kind who found the means to exist in aberrant and fibrous flesh, Haru's mind is given the possible means to overcome what has been to him an impossible bulwark thus far.

    With a demonic smirk, Haru feels ready to try again.

    R4T22: Dorn, what do you do?

    Gaye on deck, Argus Wall in the hole ... I am not qoing to note who is delaying anymore (Brother Jaume, Jean, and Javert). You know.
