    PP, it's grappling so I went ahead and applied you sneak attack/sudden strike damage.

    As the spider ascends upward with Jaume, the savage lashes out, scoring a shallow hit on the creature's side, Blue also manages to grab the thing's leg and is carried along. Aliam and the savage both grab the chains and begin their ascent. Once his grip is firmly in place, Blue delivers a series of heavy kicks to what could be the creature's kidneys. After Sebastian incases it in fire, it gives a last shriek and goes slack, falling to the floor with a mighty crash. (Jaume and Blue take (2d6)[6] falling damage).

    Sebastian

    The man slowly descends on ghostly wings to float just above the ghastly creature. Despite his knowledge that the electricity bound to it will likely kill it twice over he draws in breath. It warps and changes inside him before a deafening burst of sound surges out from within to tear the creature to shreds. Thereafter he will carefully slide his wand back into the slot from which it came with a grumble about it being damned useless.

    Blue hits the ground rolling gracefully, transferring all of the fall's energy into forward motion, ending on the ground. He quickly hops to his feet and looks to Jaume. "You be allright?"

    Tumbling to soften the fall: Tumble (slow fall): (1d20+25=34) (DC 30 = 20 feet shorter fall, so no damage), then using Back on your Feet skill trick to get back up quickly.

    As he party reassembles, Aliam breaks through the coccoon to find a white alabaster skeleton, completely devoid of flesh. Its bones show intense lacerations. Jamian is unable to pierce the spider's hide of chains.

    The Savage surveys the room once more from his hanging chain before making a massive leap across the room onto the top of the mess of chains that was the chain beast. He begins shuffling chains around, looking through the body to see what it was physically.

    Sebastian finds the auras belong to a long, white-wood staff and a ring, under a pile of chains in the corner. With them are some assorted platinum coins, obviously very old, and a brilliant star sapphire. Aliam finds some more coins of the same sort, and four identical amulets devoid of magic but of high artistic value. The savage can't seem to make any headway on the beast's "skin".

    Sebastian

    He focuses himself to force the magic within to flow through the staff to reveal its nature to him. Thereafter he will reactivate his magical sight and repeat the process on the ring. The coins and the sapphire will find their way to his pack once he counts or estimates the number of coins.

    The staff reveals itself to be a Staff of Healing and the ring a ring of protection +1. Not including the coins that Aliam found, Sebastian estimates there to be about five-hundred.

    Sebastian

    He slides his hand over the shaft for a few moments before looking to the others, "Does anyone have use for a staff which can dispense healing or a ring which offers minor protection?" He says this as he dumps the platinum coins into his bag and slips the ring on his own finger.

    ((How many charges? Identify reveals charges remaining. 500 in value or 500 platinum? Still probably 30 rounds left on that recharge for my Dragonborn breath. XD))

    Blue shrugs as the items are offered. He holds up his left hand--his ring finger holds a ring of protection of a higher grade. "Methinks this ring be better, and I get no use outta th' staff's magic. I'd be better of usin' it like a weapon, and that be a big waste methinks."

    ooc I'm not sure what caused the deafness, though I'm presuming that this was caused by the chain creatures.

    I'm aware of that. the checks were to learn how long the durations are. Also, I'm presuming that I know what caused the deafness, but if not that gives me the cause. Also, will a lesser restoration remove the deaf status?

    As he steps out the door, Aliam catches something out of the corner of his eye. He thinks he sees the spider's chains coming closer together where Blue kicked it. This gives him just enough time to react as the spider roars, gets back up and strikes at the were-tiger on top of it. (19 damage to The Savage). Initiative stands, fort saves please and a grapple check from The Savage.
