Ongoing Games (In-Character)Play-by-post games are going on in this forum as we speak (well, read). All threads on this board are actual games, so please, only post on a thread if you are a player of that game.
@Bishop: "Your friends have passed the Thorn Gate! They are likely engaging Balion and Kazym! You need to go help them! If Balion gets angered enough, he might awaken the powers she blessed him with! You must go help!"
Assuming Tarith and I are correct about glitterdust, still can't use the map so I have 60 move, try to place me in a spot like how i describe. Will DC 18
Xander invisibly maneuvers through the mist till he locates Dantie and the golem, then moves till he can see a spot 10 feet behind the golem, while staying in the mists and casts Glitterdust on that spot.
Tarith, with out the lich, can you handle him? Or do I need to attempt to remove his enchantments?
As Dantie backs away into the mist he sends quickly to Thanks Xander, now time to make sure that we can not get hit easily. Dantie says before throwing silver around in a circle around hi, chanting all the time. Once finished a 20ft. circle around him is filled with divine energy filling him with divine energy and weaking all undead who walk in it.
Using the mist to hide inside, as well as the consecrate effect which grants me a +3 to turning checks for a total of +12 now. And -1 to undead creatures attacks, damage and saves. And that dog has attacked Dantie twice, and saying fire shield is still active it has taken damage, my fault for not doing it, I shall do it now. (1d6+11)(1d6+11) does not effect the golems.
Dantie then tells Pelors holy mace to attack the undead dog.
Using my move action to do so. It attacks the new target. (1d20+17) to hit (1d8+3) force damage
As the two golems swing at Dantie he deftly avoids the two of them, with the help of Pelor. He seems to almost be dancing around his enemys, that is until Aluserk attacks, And sinks his teeth in deep. As the beast does so Dantie's armor lets lose a burst forcing the creature to let go, but not before tripping him onto his back.
@The Party: Old Balion glows with ancient power as the ground rumbles beneath him, causing the elven's face on the disc to crack under the tremendous pressure. The winds around the entire room increase to unfathomable speeds.
"BEHOLD THE POWER SHE HAS GIVEN ME!!!!"
The ground beneath your feet attempts to knock you down, while the winds try to lift you up into the knotted roof of the dome and push you against the walls with great force
Reflex DC 31 or be carried aloft suffering no damage but being pinned against the ceiling. Grapple (1d20+21)
If on the ground and resisting the winds, Reflex DC 31 or be knocked prone.
Aluserk, Basil, and Cecile are carried aloft upwards as they growl in rage. The golems begin to unmake themselves as the winds dissolve their body and carry it aloft the swirling winds.
@Tarith: You strike Old Balion fast and hard, yet you manage to score only one lucky hit. The Guardian looks down on you with a fierce look as energy trcikles through his body, barely managing to keep the Guardian from breaking apart.
As Dantie sees all the other creatures go flying up towards the ceiling Dantie trys to anchor himself down but in the end fails and is sent flying up to the roof, surrounded by the wolf and the mummy. As he looks down he sees Tarith still on the ground, the fallen, and sees him lashing out at the old druid. Someone throw the vial of blood at the door, it should open. Dantie says hoping that the blood will travel true and strike its target. Then looking at the snapping jaws of the undead hound on the side of him Dantie calls down to Balion. Killing us shall not open her gate Balion. It is your blood, the blood of a guardian, her guardian which is the only thing that can open it. That is why the lich failed. Dantie said remembering what Stenier told him. All you need to do is open a wound and place your hand on the door until it opens. Your blood is the key Balion. It has always been you. Do not do this, you said you would not stop or stand against me in my quest to find her guidance. Are you one to fall back on your word and lie? Dantie then sends mentally to Tarith If you took anything from that house I would give it to him now. We need to calm him down otherwise only his death shall release him. Danite says hoping it will not come to that, but seeing that little is left for them to do now but kill him.
(1d20+21) -10 off of the score for being rushed.
Kazym flashes back into his quarters. The lavish room is decorated with noble middle eastern motifs. A few salt mummies dressed in warrior gear bow to the dry lich as he walks towards a mirror on the wall.
"He is already engaging them. It is only a matter of time. I must thank you for your warning regarding the Seal. It is truly as you had predicted. Retrieval afterwards should be relatively easy. She is still unaware of..."
A booming voice is heard outside the Kazym's window. The dry lich promptly dismisses communication with the mirror and walks towards the balcony. Outside, an armored warrior riding a huge red dragon greets the dry lich. His armor is blazing and his eyes, hidden behind the ornate helmet spark fire.
"Where have you been off to, Kazym? I am on the verge of victory and you wander of? Remember, your counsel is valuable, but not irreplaceable."
Kazym bows to the dragon rider.
"My apologies, my lord. I was away scouting lands beyond the desert. Soon, there will be no more kingdoms to conquer here. I was merely assessing your future lands."
The fiery rider looks at him through his helmet then orders the dragon to start moving.
"Prepare your army lich. And be prompt. I plan on ending the battle today."
The armored rider flies off as Kazym bows deeply. He smiles inwards.
Only a matter of time....

Danties face looks drained as he hears the words from Balion. I hope you find the peace then in the after life that you did not find in life. Dantie says and then activates his armor freeing himself from being pinned to the roof and then holds up his holy symbol and shouts, the dome amplifying his voice a thousand fold as he does so. In the name of Pelor and his morning star. I release you all to your death so that you may once again know peace.
[roll]1d20+X12[/roll] he is aiming at the wolf thing first. Activating the armor is an immediate action. Greater turning standard, So now i have my move action which I will use to help Tarith.
As Pelors holy light fills the room Dantie commands the mace that had been attacking the wolf to go and attack the old guardian with all its might, giving no respite until he has fallen to his death.
(1d20+18) to hit (1d8+4) to damage, the +1 you may notice in my two rolls are from knowledge devotion. All my attacks get a +1 against him as well as all damage rolls.
Ok that did not work right on the turning check lets try this again. (1d20+12) turning check (2d6+11) turning damage lets hope it works this time and I make everything else break apart. Hey where is bishop XD. ok so 15HD is the total he can turn and I rolled a 14, using it on that dog to hopefully kill it.
@Dantie: You invoke Pelor's Wrath and Aluserk begins to crack. Rays of light shine through the skeletal canine as he howls to his master before exloding into pieces of bone and dust. Old Balion is hit by your spiritual weapon, but the damage is not enough to fell him.
"I KNEW IT! ALL OF YOU CONSPIRE AGAINST ME! THIS GUARDIAN WILL NOT GIVE YOU THE PLEASURE OF AN EASY FIGHT!"
@Tarith: You strike incorporeally at Balion's legs, but sadly, the powers that imbue him now have made him difficult to hit. He backs away 20ft. and smears his eyes with a thick smelling paste. The unguent seeps into his eyes and he holds his scythe with both hands.
"If by wrath, you mean stench, sadly, I must agree. No animal would let itself smell so much, yet you do. If you want me dead, come and get me, if you dare." (1d20+51)bluff, trying to get him to attempt to melee Tarith
Tarith stands up, takes a step forward, and prepares for Balion's attack
So, stand up, 5 foot step towards Balion, and ready the following attack for his charge, trigger being him getting within range of Tarith's daggers. Also using my swift action to wraithstrike... again
attack(1d20+14) damage(1d4) sneak attack(4d6+12) magebane(2d6+2) miss(1d100)
attack(1d20+14) damage(1d4) sneak attack(4d6+12) magebane(2d6+2) miss(1d100)
@The Party: Cecile and Basil growl as they attempt to pull of the weight of the winds that have them stuck to the ceiling, however, Balion's power is vast, and they are unable to let go of his ancient grip.
Xander, realizing that he won't be able to beat the wind, focuses on escaping it instead, so he shouts into the wind, his words lost to it, and vanishes from the ceiling, reappearing out of the wind radius on the floor.
@Xander: After attempting to escape the wind's hold on you, you recall the lessons at the academy.
"A wizard should always be prepared for a hasty escape, even if hindered somatically. For those willing to follow the path of adventure and danger, incantations that relocate our bodies away from harm is a must for daily preparation."
You wish yourself away from the pressing force of the winds and close your eyes. When you open them, you find yourself at the entrance to the arena. The elven face craved on the ground has been cracked beyond recognition by the power exerted from the Guardian. Tarith has managed to avoid the winds, and as his cape attempts to fly away, he readies his daggers against the monster of a man who wields a scythe a few feet away from him. Even without resorting to the lessons in school, you can tell Old Balion surges with near infinite power coursing though his body, barely managing to stay put.
As Dantie looks back to Xander to make sure he is ok he sees the mage disappear. Good now on to Balion. Dantie says flying full speed at the once proud guardian trying to reach him in time to help Tarith. As he gets above the guardian he drops his shield and takes his morningstar in both hands ready to smite him.
Dantie takes a full round action to fly. Normal speed 90ft.x4=360ft.So yea he is now on the opposite side of his mace flanking Balion, he is boxed in.
As Dantie gets to his target he looks at the old druid. There is no where else to run Balion, Let your blood open the door so that we both may see her. Dantie says as the mace on the opposite side of him flanking balion strikes.
not sure if it gets the bonuses (1d20+17) to hit (1d8+3) damage, and off for the night. good luck everyone
