    Excalith

    (This is all assuming that the hole they drilled is somewhere in the cavern)

    At the Kobold's words of fear about the present condition of the mine Excalith grunted. Turning away he moves into the cavern, squeezing himself through the places that he could. Reaching through the cavern, he locates the largest stalagmite/stalactite he can. Bringing up his massive fists Excalith first pounds with a tremendous force at the very base of the protruding rock, and then he proceeds to wrenches it with all of his considerable force as he calls out to the Kobolds. Show me the way to this hole in the cavern. Now.

    Spoiler
    Show

    Excalith's intent with his attack is to weaken the base of the Stalactite/Stalagmite so that it is easier to wrench free, hopefully by producing cracks around the base. Then he attempts to push/wrench it so that the majority of it comes along with him.

    Damage (4d6+37)[50] (I forgot previously that having one natural weapon gives it a +1 and 1/2 strength to damage, is why its a bit more then last time)

    [OOC - Describing the room again incase I wasn't clear]

    It is a roughly circular area about 50- 70 feet across with a 20-25 foot ceiling. In the center of the room, slowly filling in a small depression is a 13-15ft wide hole in the floor. The aboleth was coming up out of this hole as did the skum minions. The water coming out of the hole is slowly filling the room and looks like it will slowly begin to flood the mines if left unchecked.

    Sophiel is unhurt, but there are 6 dead kobolds and 3 more who are ok physically. One of the three is still having confusion problems. Taktak is not included with these.

    Excalith - are you making yourself a stone club? Or some other tool? You are easily successful in collecting a large stalactite.

    Taktak looks to you all The [Demon Fish] live in the Undersea. I can lead you to the tunnel that leads to the [Undersea] but I will go no further. His eyes speak of true fear of the [Demon Fish]. He turns and begins to lead the way down one of the tunnels that comes off this main room.

    Zariel nodded in agreement with Celeste, thinking that this would make an excellent goodwill gesture, and further prove the superiority of Trual. Indeed... lead onwards, and we will do what we can to aid you and your fellows against the foul invaders that dare to usurp your tunnels. We shall further demonstrate the might of Lord Trual, as exemplified through us.

    Excalith

    (Not Exactly, I'm simply plugging the hole. And if this Stalactite wasn't enough, well there's plenty in the room to help fill it.)

    I shall come with you in a few moments. While I don't mind dealing death, drowning seems such a horrible waste. Even a pointless battle serves to strengthen the survivors. Excalith growls as he squeezes over to the hole in the floor and places the stalactite next to the whole. Then he goes and repeats this process of gathering stalactites and stalagmites as much as he deems necessary before attempting to use his tremendous strength to plug the hole with them. If he succeeds, Excalith will also pile several further stalactites/stalagmites on top of the plugged hole so that the plug will not come off as easily.

    Ecalith's efforts greatly slow the inrushing water but cannot seal the hole completely.

    Taktak leads you to another tunnel which is downright wet. There is lcien and molds growing here. The smell of fungus is strong. Very faintly you can heal the lapping of waves. Taktak stops at the edge of a puddle in the tunnel and then points down the tunnel, he is literally shaking with fear, unable to speak.

    Sophiel turns to Taktak, contemptously furrowing her brow at the assumedly evil creature's cowardice. "Have no fear, little one." She said, "For you shall bear witness to the supreme divinity of our master. It is within us that his power is expressed."

    Summoning her glaive and hoisting the heavy thing onto her shoulder, she walked forward into the tunnel, keeping a vigilant eye out for the kobolds' enemies.

    Excalith

    Might be a bit annoying getting to them if they go into the pools, I can do many things but breathing under water isn't one of them. Still, perhaps my teleportation abilities will help in that respect. Excalith growls as he catches up with the group, and as once again a tinge of reddish glow surrounds his body.

    Shrugging his shoulders Excalith says I may as well go first then. as he walks into the cavern, nonchalent to any threats that may be within.

    As you all walk down the wet cave into the darkenss beyond you can see water lapping at a shoreline. The vauled ceiling goes up and away, you are more than a mile underground at this point. The walls fall away at the shoreline, there are no lights to be seen anywhere in the enormous cave.

    Only the limits of your darkvision reveal that the beach area is more than a few hundred feet long. There are many entrances along the wall you have just exited from. Taktak creeps along and sits still at the edge of the opening and whispers The [Under Sea]

    Full round actions, summoning each round.

    Round 1: (1d4+1)[4] Small Earth elementals, with orders to guard the shores at a 20' mark from the water.

    Round 2: Juvenile Tojanida, swim speed 90'. Sending it out with orders to investigate. It is not to attack anything unless it is attacked. Return on Round 8 to report before it vanishes. Int 10, so it should be able to communicate, I would think.

    Round 3: Juvenile Tojanida, swim speed 90'. Stay 30' out from the shore.

    Round 4: Huge Shark, swim speed 60'. Stay at 60' out.

    [sorry about the break guys-was playing across Europe]

    Waetir's summons all go as planned. The guards and watchers going to their appointed places. The scout Tojanida returns at the allotted time reporting Water stinks of Aboleth. Shoreline goes out about [50feet], then drops off, very deep. A few twinkles at the deepest, too far to swim.

    Celeste's darkvision allows her to see the surface of the water but no more. She sees no apparent threats.

    A few minutes pass in silent and still watching of the great sea. As Waetir's summons begin to return to their home planes the last one lets out a warning cry as the water begins to froth. A great number of Skum, minions of the Aboleth, come boiling from tunnels hidden in the water.

    Celeste is the first to see the mass of bubbles rising to the surface. Quickly followed by the huge head of an Aboleth. A moment later four smaller Aboleth break the surface of the water around it patrolling in circles. The oily mucus of their skin surrounding them in a darkened cloud.

    Why have you come to this place outsiders? This is the [Under Sea], you are not welcome here. Comes to you all from the central, larger Aboleth.

    They are our food, and sometimes our slaves. Why are beings like yourselves siding with these less than immortal things? Comes the reply of the central Aboleth.

    The Skum form a loose line across the waterline. Two of the smaller (read-normal sized) Aboleth dive beneath the mucus clouded water, dissappearing from view.

    I can feel that little fish, and I don't like it. It makes me... HUNGRY! Excilath howls with truly fiendish delight as the attempts to root around in his mind brush up against his wellspring of rage, which overpowers them.

    Moving forward with a horrid speed, Excilath seems to soar through the air, even as a fountain of blood tinged light envelops his hands even as he roars with laughter and pleasure as he barrels down upon the center aboleth.

    He is not certain that this is the best move, it is perhaps even a stupid one given that he does not know much about his opponent, but from what has been shown before, these creatures are manipulators, and not fighters such as he.
