    R2T20: Björn steps forward again to try to find the foe, but in doing so he steps into a field of ivy that writhes around, attempting to hold him fast. For now, at least, it does not hold him. Because Jean is in front of him when he moves north, Björn has to move east along the upper side chamber. With the rubble in the way, Björn ends partway in the field of ivy.

    R2T19: Gaye rushes forward into the mist. Björn sees her stab at an area west of the ivy. She shrugs, looking at Björn and says,
    "It was worth a shot."

    R2T18: Jean, you are standing in an area of grasping ivy. Roll a Ref save. After that, the last sensory input you got of the Tatterman is that you heard laughter above the spot due south of you, though Björn just walked through that area. What do you do?

    R2T18: Keeping his sword raised and his back to the wall, Jean does his best to make his way out of the ivy and into the corner west of him, but Zoo's ivy plants entangle him. He tries to break out using brute force, but fails.

    R2T17: Laughter is now heard from behind Björn, to the east ... and it sounds like it is close to Zoo as well!!!

    R2T15: Zoo, you are still in pain from your last casting. You are concentrating on an ivy field that is holding fast an ally. Worst of all, you just heard the Tatterman laughing from what seems to be 1 square NW of you (so adjacent to Björn and yourself). What do you do?

    R3T18: Jean delays, preparing to attack if the Tatterman comes to the upper west corner. He is not going to chase around after phantom voices or swing wildly in the air. He shouts a challenge.
    Spoiler: Aklo
    Show
    "Come monster! My blade is hungry to end you, nightmare."

    R3T17: The Tatterman seems to answer the taunt, but not to Jean. He suddenly appears several feet off the ground to the southwest, right above Zoo and Haru. Haru feels a sting, and looks at a gash on his left shoulder that wasn't there a second ago (6). Already staggered from previous effort, Haru falls onto the pallet, unmoving, never actually having had a chance to really notice his attacker's invisible attack. As soon as Haru falls, the boost to the heroes own bit of savagery ends.

    And now the party (except Jean, Gaye, and Björn, due to occulsion from mist) see this horrible creature in the real and now. So bloody and terrifying is he and the attack he perpetrated, that the sight of him and his savagery is jarring to all who see him.

    I need two saves from Zoo. The first is a SAN check, and then the second is a fear-based check ... in that order.

    R3T16: Gaye, hearing the sound of battle just out of the mist, moves forward to engage the floating Tatterman, and she crits him for 5 mod. "He is resistant to weapons!" she calls out.

    R3T15: Though he could easilyi go underneath the Tatterman, the horror is too terrifying and so Zoo bolts in panic to the west (withdrawing) to cower in the SW corner.

    R3T14: Despite his pounding heart, Akbar steps forward and defenively concentrates. From his forehead shoots forth wild, flashing lights, much like the one that helped make short work of the apostles in the guardroom. But the Tatterman seems unconcerned with the crazy lights.

    R3T13: Lord Hanley, witnesssing the terror, drops his dagger and tries to acrobatically bolt past the Tatterman. He isn't that successful and the Tatterman slashes the little man's right elbow for 8 as he goes past. The little lord shrieks in pain, and that shriek lingers as he goes down the eastern hallway.

    Waving his sword about, startled by the sudden screams and blinded by the thick mist, Jean latches on to the only thing he's certain of - the creature is out there. Out there with the screams.

    His mind still gibbering to itself in seven different languages, Jean bursts out of the fog and levels an accusatory finger at the tattered demon who's presence fills the room. Malevolence, black like tar and writhing with his madness, entwines itself with the Tatterman's own as Jean brandishes his scimitar. He closes the distance, and cuts at the thing mightily.

He closes the distance, even putting himself in danger as he crosses past Akbar so as not to be limited by a column. Somebody must have previously gotten the monster's attention, as Jean is able to get into position without provoking a counterattack. Now armed with darkness, he swings at the Tatterman mightily. But the Tatterman is speed incarnate, and deflects the larger, clumsier blade with its smaller war razor.

    R4T20: Björn trundles to the south and east, coming out of the mist. The only place he can stand and attack, for he sees the enemy floating several feet off the ground, has Björn having to stab with a column in the way, and with the fear gripping his heart, nobody can blame him when he misses the fiendishly fast foe.

    But seeing his enemy, actually getting a measure of having to look at the monster, is another thing for the terrified warrior.

    Björn, roll a SAN check now that you have finally set eyes on the Tatterman.

    R4T17: By this point, everyone can see that the Tatterman has healed up the last of the wound that Björn and Gaye had previously inflicted on him. He floats unharmed amidst the heroes. He floats southwest a little to adjust position, still 5' off the ground, but now against the southern wall. He concentrates and casts a spell on his war razor, and a shadowy afterimage follows his blade as he moves it.

    The creatures skill with magic comes as a shock to Jean, and he momentarily lowers his blade as he thinks through his next course of action. He concentrates, and through the repetition of mathematical formulas most obscure he brings a heavy mesh of normalcy, of reality down around him.

Sensing something wrong and an opening with the Tatterman's strange posturing, Björn stabs again with his dagger but the Tatterman - readied for it - simply ducks the too-high thrust while side-stepping Gaye's blade. His blade slashes Haru's unprotected throat for 11.

    Haru, roll a Fort save .... here in the IC since this means life or death for Haru.

    R5T17 (Cont'd): It is a shockingly brutal action, and arterial spray splatters the Tatterman and Akbar in gore. It is a pulsing spray, not steady, and the blood finally winds down, signifying that Haru has breathed his last. The glow on him disappear, plunging the room into darkness!

    And so passes Haru Makoto Tsuyoshi.

    R5T16: Gaye is normally nonplussed by darkness, but the sudden shift in light levels proves disastrous as she wildly misses and her rapier slams into the wall ... shattering (destroyed). She doesn't waste time and draws her main gauche. "I wrecked my rapier, but I have a backup. Akbar, I wish we had some light!"

    R5T15: Only adding to Zoo's terror is that his world has plunged into darkness ... before (see below) light begins anew.

    R5T14: Akbar answers, "I'm a little too far, Gaye, for a wish to work for you ... but I get the idea." He then steps back from the Tatterman and casts light on his walking stick before resuming his stare on the Tatterman.

    R5T12: Jean, you just lost a member of the party, one who has survived horrors from the very beginning only to die now. The two of you were intellectual rivals, and maybe Haru "cheated" because he admitted to you once that spirits spoke arcane secrets in his ear, but he was a hedgewitch with amazing powers of entropy and offense (and defense, actually) who will cannot be replaced. What do you do?

    Also, it seems that at some point the Tatterman healed damage he had suffered while invisible. Also, Gaye's rapier seemed to have a muted effect on the Tatterman - she even called it out, but Björn's oversized silver dagger .... be it a function of his own occult powers or not .. seems to have no problem cutting the terror.

    Björn on deck, Tatterman in the hole ...

    Jean winces as the arterial spray arcs through the air, his mind struggling to reconcile his newfound paranoia with the dismal, sinking shock of his oldest companion's death. First Javert, now Haru... were his only allies here now dead and gone? Are these few remaining mere figments of this horrible dream?

    His mind reels, with nothing to cling on to but the failing truths his body gives him. The silver hurt this thing, and he has silver to spare. Reaching back into his coat pocket, he pulls out and de-stoppers a small vial before pouring the shimmering contents over his blade.

    Seeing his team mate struck down in such a callous way enrages Björn and he shrieks and strikes at the opening he sees.

    R6T20: Seeing his team mate struck down in such a callous way enrages Björn and he shrieks and strikes at the opening he sees. The dagger cuts against the Tatterman's upper right arm, but it turns out his thick skin keeps the blade from penetrating.

    R6T17: The Tatterman seems to study Gaye intently before placing himself in an incredibly dangerous position. To their horror, they see some of his wounds begin to knit (5). Now flanked by Gaye and Björn he slashes Gaye across the cheek for 6.

    R6T16: Gaye then slashes with her main gauche ineffectually, but mainlyi to change position. "Jean, flank him!"

    R6T15: Zoo continues to cower ...

    R6T14: Akbar steps down to be in line with the Tatterman, casts a spell and shoots him with a ray of enfeeblement with a critical strike right to the center of the Tatterman's head for a whopping 7 STR + 11 hp! It is a truly withering attack.

    R6T12: Jean, what do you do?

    Jean does indeed move to flank the Tatterman, one hand curled into a gnarled claw tearing at the Tatterman's spiritual essence before he lashes out with his newly-silvered sword.
