    R3T14: Feeling the worst for wear after his previous failed attack, Jens takes a few moments to (successfully) recover.

    R3T7: Haru, your readied action (frost blast when "hostile target becomes visible to Haru") did not occur. Your previous rolls will not continue into your next action-round if you maintain the readied action. What do you do?

    R3T7: Haru continues to prepare himself to blast the first hostile creature to come into his sight.

    R3T4: Moving toward the east, Maeni adds in the collective:

    "We should try to see if it follows us outside this zone. So far it's just highly hazardous."

    R4T26:
    In addition to the sobbing that sounds like both Gaye and Björn, a child's voice is heard again, and again with an eerie, pleading quality: "Brenton, the lamp went out!"

    Again some small head zips out and bites Zoo (3) and disappears as something like a claw swipes at him. At the same time, Flair's energy tether fires but doesn't even go into the darkness, but smacks into the lintel above the doorway before unforming.

    R4T19: Gaye stabs into the darkness, then steps back five feet.

    R4T16: Corbin, you have a normal bolt loaded. Gaye just opened up your LOS. What do you do?

    Björn delaying, Zoo on deck, Jens in the hole ...

    R4T16-15: Unwilling to waste any ammunition on something he can't hit, Corbin keeps his crossbow at the ready but doesn't fire yet. Björn also continues to delay ...

    R4T14.5: Zoo, catching his breath before having it stolen when he gets bitten, sniffs deeply to try and pinpoint the thing's location before lurching forward and trying to drag the thing into the open. As he comes in, the thing darts at him to cause 1 NL, and Zoo fails to get a grapple.

    The thing is not very strong. It is weak enough that by doing minimum damage, it does a point of non-lethal on this last bite, instead of lethal. Still, a bite is a bit ... roll a Fort save!

    R4T7: Haru continues to wait for a chance to blast one, while calling out to the others. "It doesn't look like they want to leave the darkness, does it?"

    Gaye, who knows Haru is not part of the collective, yet without her own voice, looks to him and gestures to Zoo (who is still at the doorway) ... and she shrugs.

    R4T4: Maeni waits till everyone is away from the door, to take measures.

    End Round 4, Begin Round 5 ...

    R5T26:
    Zoo again gets bit, this time for 3. He is already exhausted, but now this strike threatens to drop him! Something also reaches out from in front of him and touches him.

    R5T25: Flair was readying himself to strike, but he wasn't unconsciously aware with what, so he was surprised when he saw his "attack". What could best be described as a dagger appeared, though it lacked handle or quillions and simply had a metal ring beneath the blade. Drawn through the circle was a length of flowing silk, swaying as if in a breeze no one could feel. It sailed through the air at its target, but Flair was so taken aback by it that he pulled back in surprise. This proved to be a mistake, as the flowing silk seem to be emanating from his wrist and that motion pulled it off course.

    Regardless, Flair had to deal with the situation at hand. "Fall back!" he yelled at the party even as Zoo was reeling. "If it wants to hit us, make it come into the light!" He then readies himself for when it does.

    R5T23: Seeing an opportunity to open up the field in the heroes' favor, and in accord with Flair's and Maeni's wish, Björn takes a step back (but not happily).

    R5T14.5: Zoo, roll a Fort save or have something bad happen. Roll a second Fort save for a different effect that is more annoying than anything. Regardless, post your intended action.

    R5T14.5: Zoo, having a sense of the danger of the little biting skull, catches a breath for himself. He stayed a little more still to do it - which perhaps is why he took a "heavy hit" (for this thing) - but easily is nonplussed, not even really showing a wound from the bite as Jens' psionics protect him. But when he gets hit by the claw, which doesn't even hurt, he feels funny .... like a little tickle mixed with pins and needles at his canine throat.

    At the same time, the faint sobs and lamentations heard from the darkness now seem to include a new voice added in, one that sounds like the whine Zoo-dog makes when he is scared (and in that form). Zoo guardedly retreats to be next to Jens and Corbin.

    "I don't want to sound defeatist, but this thing is in too good of a position. We need it to leave it's hidey hole or we need to fill that doorway with enough fire that it can't survive."

    Flair tepes to the group "I think I can throw my ropes in there and pull it out. until I do, everyone stay back. If you think you have a shot, take it, but otherwise wait for me to get it in range I We need to fight this thing smart, and getting it its striking range probably won't help."

    End Round 6, Begin Round 7 ...

    R7T26-25: Flair tries to use his energy tether, but fails again. Meanwhile, it sounds like the sobbing dissipates until you hear nothing.

    R7T23: Reaching into his pouch, Björn pulls out a flask and aims for a spot just inside the door beyond the darkness, pitches the flask. From the sounds of things, he may have been off by 10' as the flask is heard a lot more distantly than expected, with no visible flash or splash beyond the darkness on the heroes' side.

    Flair tepes to the party.

    Vlad Björn Tepes to the collective: Someone needs to tell Haru we cannot speak... We must get our voices back.

    R10T25: "I hate to do this" Flair spoke, remembering that not everyone was in the collective. "But I think that it won't stay manifested unless there's someone close enough to hit, but if it hits you, it takes your voice. We need someone to stand next to the door so it will stick around. But be warned; if it hits you, it takes your voice"

    "Unfortunately, I know of only one way to find out Björn."

    R10T13: Maeni tries to position herself so that her fire rays can hit the creature without hitting one of her allies, but for now she has to make do with having to deal with Björn's massive frame in her way to act as undesired cover.

    End Round 10, Begin Round 11 ...

    R11T26:
    There is a fast patter of feet, as if something is quickly running at the entrance. The strange small, object - like an animal skull of some sort, darts out just briefly to again bite Zoo (only 1 NL, soaked up by Jens' protection), just as the sobs and whimpers (Gaye, Zoo, Björn, and another, like a small child) are heard as if they just suddenly started. It is a thing which is quite demoralizing to you all. The claw, unlike before, does not come out - which is what Maeni was waiting for.

    R11T14: Björn is willing to entertain one last attempt... So he will hold his action, readying to strike also as soon as the beast appears.

    R11T13: Maeni resets her readied action as before.

    End Round 11, Begin Round 12 ...

    R12T26:
    The bite comes again on Zoo for 2, which removes the last of Jens' protection and goes right to pain. Flair fires off his energy tether, but doesn't seem to connect with anything. Zoo balks on his intended action because Flair never actually hit the creature. Though the creature doesn't "appear," yet the appearance of the strange biting skull is enough to give Björn a sense of where it is ... until he misses. The claw attack never comes, which is what Maeni was banking on.

    R12T15: Zoo, roll a Fort save. Your readied action did not go off (Flair didn't hit it). What do you do?

    Maeni on deck (her readied action did not go off), bogey in the hole ...

    Gaye/ Corbin/ Jens/ Haru delaying ...

    R12T13-7: Brainstorming to look for all the possibilities, Maeni starts losing herself in her thoughts.
    Spoiler: Maeni >>> Collective
    Show
    "Could it also be an haunt?"
    Of course, as brilliant as she is, Maeni doesn't know anything about haunts (or anything even related to them), so doesn't really have anything to offer.

    Flair mentions the strange aspects of the voice-stealing, which seems to be very unique. Gaye offers a few insights regarding the strange exhausting effect of the bite, and Haru finally puts the whole thing together.

    The creature - its sobbing aura, its strange little skull, the child's voice when calling for "Brenton" and something about a "lantern" - is an attic whisperer. An attic whisperer is a type of undead - specifically from a child who died while lonely or neglected. So, anything anti-undead helps. Sadly, Gaye can't cast her spells without her voice. Attic whisperers' sobbing aura makes those that hear it less capable to fight and resist mental attacks.

    The darkness seems to be unique to this situation. [The back-and-forth soaks up Maeni's and Haru's turns.]
    Spoiler: Corbin
    Show
    CORBIN is able to remember something, but only because he and Heck spent some time with the two children in the chaplain's office. Remember them? One of the kids' names was Brenton Lieklan, and he had been separated from his little brother Debis. Brenton was upset because he missed his little brother (and his little brother had his toy soldiers), and Brenton also had Debis' shadow lantern - a child's lantern in which you put a candle inside and spin it and it makes moving images.

    R12T6: Gaye drags Zoo to herself, and then steps forward to take his place, but not before the attic whisperer bites (and misses) Zoo.

    End Round 12, Begin Round 13 ...

    R13T26:
    "Brenton," comes the eerie child's voice amongst the sobs, "the lamp went out!" The little skull bites at Gaye but scratches against her studded leather. Again, there is no claw.

    R13T25: Flair, the attic whisperer seems to be standing in front of Gaye. What do you do?

    Zoo casts his spell thrice to augment every part of his physical being. He then waits a few seconds to make sure any system shock has passed before stepping up, just as Haru calls on the spirits of the area to coax the ambient positive energy around him into him like a sponge.

    Surprise: As expected, the unexpected, as a small, misshapen skull darts out of the darkness and bites Maeni on her R foot for 2. Maeni was mentally prepared to take a hit, though, and she had taken a good breath before stepping forward.

    The sounds of a small child's sobs can be heard.

    Begin Round One ...

    R1T24:
    The skull comes in a lot higher now, biting Maeni on her right ear while its skull slams into her with a thundering crack, deafening the caster and doing 3 with its crit, though Maeni still manages to keep her breath! Her right hand gets brushed by a little, bony hand and as it does so, Maeni fights to keep her voice, but is prepared enough to do so.

    R1T20: Zoo delays ... waiting until his services are needed as a liveryman.

    R1T19: Flair, what do you do? The attic whisperer seems to be right in front of Maeni at this time.

    R1T19: Flair tries to use his positive energy to attack the haunt, but he can't get it to "fire." He theorizes that it worked like lightning and without a visible target the connection that the energy passed through to its target couldn't be made. He instead releases a burst of positive energy to heal his teammates. Zoo and Maeni are now fully healed (though Maeni's ears are still ringing from that last blow).

    R1T17: Björn, though it is in darkness, you have a pretty good idea where the sobbing thing is. What do you do?

    R1T15: Corbin takes a shot at where Bjorn had swung, and he hears a very satisfying hit before he reloads with another regular bolt. "So what exactly was the plan here?"

    R1T15: Haru chooses to aim for the same spot that the others had fired at and launches his magic towards it, channeling it into the same positive energy that he had used previously, but he doesn't hear anything that sounds like good contact.

    R1T12: Maeni, you are currently deafened (more like ears ringing), so if you cast a spell, you suffer a 20% chance of miscasting the spell if it has verbal components.

    R1T12: Instead of casting a spell, Maeni gathers the breath she kept and unleashes it as another stream of fire. Without seeing a target, it is hard to know if she succeeded or not, or how well. She does realize that she has only one more flame arc she can muster up before she would have to consume spells for more raw arcane power.

    "I won't be able to fight defensively, though!"

    R1T11: Gaye looks at Corbin. "THAT! The plan is to do more of THAT. Keep shooting, Molty!" She fires a disrupt undead a little too high, and she knows she missed.

    End Round One, Begin Round 2 ...

    Also, Maeni's deafness fades. She can hear again, but now she has no voice.

    R2T19: Flair growled in frustration. It was happening again. It was the exact same thing as last time. He knew he should have put his foot down and had them fall back, but he didn't want to be a dictator. But with Maeni hit again, that might be their primary offense out of the picture. He tepes to the collective...

    "Maeni, are you still able to attack it with your magic? In fact, I need a sitrep: Who here has any anti-undead countermeasures left? Because just swinging at this thing is getting us nowhere."

    In the mean time, he releases another pulse of healing energy towards Maeni, hoping that it might fix her voice. It fixed the bite wound on her other foot, if nothing else. Then again, Flair doubts it since the sobbing now includes Maeni's sobs coming from the other side of the darkness.

    Healing your wounds did nothing to give you back your breath (fatigued) or your voice.

    R2T17: Seeing Maeni being healed, Jens takes a shot in the dark with an Earth Blast. While thinking he shot well, still it sounds like rocks hitting floor beyond.

    R2T15: "Molty!? What kind of nickname is that!?" He bristles at the remark, feathers puffing up around his neck. He aims into the darkness to take reaction fire the next time the thing decides to show itself again.

    R2T14: Haru gives it another try and launches another bolt of positive energy into the darkness, but he's pretty sure he didn't hit anything.

    R2T12: Lacking other options without her voice, Maeni keeps throwing fire, and given she's already voiceless, she stays at the entrance. She is pretty sure she didn't hit anything.
    Spoiler: Maeni
    Show
    Nothing indicates whether or not it moved.

    R2T11: Instead of just shooting, Gaye takes a turn from Corbin's book and waits for an attack so she can be sure of her attack vector.

    "Oh, ha!" Gaye laughs at herself. "Sorry, Corbin, I didn't even think of molting feathers. No, the military from Molthune are legendary crossbow shooters, and they're called Moltys, and they speak with a drawl. So, a common thing to say when someone makes a good shot is, 'Good shootin', Molty!' Sorry, again, forgot about the feathers and all."

    End Round 2, Begin Round 3 ...

    R3T24-22:
    Well, it turns out the little bugger DID move at some point (last round or just now) as the attic whisperer attacks Maeni again but from an angle indicating it is standing in front of Björn, and nips the munavri in the left knee for 2.

    Before it has a chance to reach out with its claw, Corbin and Gaye fire at it. The sound of a bolt smashing into bolt is heard again, in addition to a sizzling sound that indicates that Gaye was successful with her attack as well. The downside is that now Corbin is unloaded.

    A claw, partially blackened now from positive energy damage, reaches out and misses Björn.

    Maeni, roll a Fort save ....

    R3T19: Flair sighed. When the party got finished with this they were going to have to have a serious talk about communication. There was little point in trying to heal Maeni; it wouldn't heal her voice and the wound itself wasn't too damaging. Having saw the claw, he aims his tether at the spot where is should be and loosed it again, hoping it would aim truer this time. It doesn't.

    Still, the heroes are infused with a sense of increased aggression that seems spurred on by Flair.
