When they said no tricks, they really meant it.

Following Flarrgj forward, Fugen get's right behind the barbarian and the Major as he draws a vial of alchemist's fire.

Her line of fire unobstructed, Kierna lets fly an arrow at the lamia on the far side of the chamber that she can see waking up.

Calling upon the power of the Duke and that of the rod, Gizerak calls flames to his hand with which to burn those imprisoning the Emperor.

Seeing Gizerak's flames, Termix is reminded of his own source of fire and steps forward to get a better view into the main chamber.

[OOC: Standard actions only because it's a surprise round.

Fugen moves to 1100N/985E, drawing a vial of alchemist fire as he does so.

Kierna shoots Lamia 3.

Gizerak casts produce flame, using the lesser rod of extend spell to double its duration.

Termix moves to 1120N/975E, drawing the wand of fireball.]

Nimdor loads his crossbow, and then stays put, realizing he would just get in the way.

Seeing the success of Kierna's arrow, Gizerak lobs a ball of fire at the same lamia, hoping to take it out of the fight before it can really react.

Using his own source of fire, Fugen attempts to similarly light up the lamia close to the party while at the same time avoiding those who are already engaging it directly.

Moving to the East, Termix tries for line of sight to the third lamia to light it up as well.

Kierna, with no fire of her own, settles for arrows instead.

[OOC: Gizerak throws fire from produce flame at lamia 3. 9 attacks remaining for that spell.

Fugen throws alchemist's fire at lamia 1. Trying to target one of the squares of the lamia which is opposite those attacking it so that they don't get splashed.

Termix moves to 985E/1125N. This should give him LOS to Lamia 2. Cast fireball from the wand centered on lamia 2.

Kierna uses rapid shot to fire arrows at lamia 3.]

4:8 Pit Battle Round 1

Jiangu!, Chapter 6, Scene 4:8 Pit Battle Round 1

Gizerak, Kierna, and one of the serpent monks bombard one of the lamias with fire and arrows. Termix uses his wand to blast the other with fire. Flarrg, Major Ling Dao Ren, and Takeshi with his mount all slash and maul the nearest lamia. Fugen lobs a jar of alchemist fire, but his toss is long. It splashes the lamia as it lands behind the target.

The lamia that is being assaulted realizes he has no chance to rise. Instead he locks the gaze of Flarrgj and speaks to him in a resonant voice. “Help me, friend! Strike down the knight!” Flarrgj is suddenly convinced that the lamia is his ally, and he turns to strike at Major Ling.

Before he can strike, two apes appear on either side of the lamia and maul it to death. As the lamia is torn apart, the spell is broken and Flarrgj is released from its alien compulsion.

The lamia to the right attempts the same trick on the approaching priest, but without success. The priest answers its plea for alliance by charging and bashing it with his morning star as the smoke from the fireball clears.

The lamia on the left has been shot and burned. It turns and leaps down into the pit.




OOC
6,4:8 (1d20=12, 1d20=9, 1d20=11, 1d20=19, 1d20=14, 1d20=19, 1d20=19, 1d20=4, 1d20=9, 1d20=12, 1d20=13, 1d20=9, 1d20=11, 1d20=12, 1d20=2, 1d20=14, 1d20=2, 1d20=8, 1d20=3, 1d20=9, 1d20=6, 1d20=7, 1d20=13, 1d20=13, 1d20=14, 1d20=5, 1d20=11, 1d20=1, 1d20=19, 1d20=3)

Seeing the lamia head into the pit where the emperor is supposed to be kept prisonner, Fugen immediately follows, practically heedless of his own saftey. As he goes he fishes a sunrod out of his pack and drops it ahead of him into the pit, confident that it will light when it strikes the bottom.

No longer able to see a target, both Gizerak and Kierna move gain line of sight to the remaining lamia and continue with their attacks.

Taking a bit more careful aim, Termix launches a fireball to the far side of the remaining lamia, trying to catch it, but not his "ally" attacking it.

[OOC: Fugen moves to 1080N/1005E. Jumping into the pit to reduces the effective height by 10' (Jump 32 vs. DC 15), using slow fall to reduce it by a further 20', and, if necessary, using Tumble to reduce it another 10' (Tumble 21 vs. DC 15). That makes the fall effectively 40' shorter than it actually is. He also draws a sunrod as he moves and drops it into the pit ahead of him. Since sunrods light when the strike a hard surface, the rod should light when it hits bottom.

Kierna moves to 1120N/980E and fires an arrow at lamia 2.

Gizerak moves to 1125N/980E and throws a ball of fire at lamia 2. Duration reduced to 8 min.

Termix uses the wand of fireball again, placing the fireball center 15' behind lamia 2.]

Nimdor aims, and fires his crossbow at the same target that Termix is, hoping to bring him down. He then reloads his crossbow, and sighs visibly.

Why is it always a fight with these people? Can't they just... sneak past for once? I need to go back to working with thieves again, less violence.

He then reloads his crossbow.

Takeshi rushes to the edge of the pit and summons a ball of flame which hovers over his hand. He peers into the pit in the hopes that he can be helpful from above.

4:9 Pit Battle Round 2

Jiangu!, Chapter 6, Scene 4:9 Pit Battle Round 2


Fugen lands softly at the bottom of the pit, which is twenty feet deep. He discovers that the pit was already well lit, thanks to a torch of continual flame mounted ten feet from the bottom.

In the pit Fugen finds one of the lamia, having survived the jump but critically wounded. Moments later, the archer from the Cuanwei faction jumps down into the pit and rolls to break his fall.


Fugen also finds a dignified looking man, wearing elegant but soiled robes. His hair and beard are long, and he has suffered from neglect, but his bearing is graceful. He is kneeling in a meditative pose. He considers the lamia, the archer, and the messenger that have jumped into the pit.

The lamia in the pit stands and stares at Fugen. Fugen can feel a magical compulsion to fall asleep, but easily shrugs it off.

Gizerak, Termix, Nimdor, and Kierna bombard the lamia that remains above the pit. It is scorched by a second fireball and Gizerak’s flames. It backs away from the priest and focuses on Major Ling, now charging towards it. “Don’t attack me, knight. Attack the priest” it says.

The priest turns and sees that Major Ling has been enchanted. He casts a spell to undo the enchantment.

Takeshi is not the only one curious about what is happening in the pit. After he arrives, the scholar advances up to the edge of the pit as well, along with his summoned apes. The two Serpent Monks follow.

Flarrgj shakes off the effects of the enchantment in a rage, and charges towards the burning Lamia outside of the pit as all the others move towards the pit.

Continuing their bombardment of the lamia, Kierna, Gizerak, and Termix lash out again with fire and arrow.

Down in the pit, Fugen places himself between the lamia and the emperor, ready to defend his ruler from all who would attack him.

[OOC: Kierna shoots Lamia 2. Full attack with rapid shot.

Gizerak throws another ball of flame at lamia 2.

Termix uses another wand charge. Placing the fireball as last round.

Fugen moves to 1010E/1045E and readies an action to attack anyone who moves to attack the emperor. He will use a stunning fist attempt on said attack.]

Nimdor reloads his crossbow, and fires once again.

Maybe one of these days I'll actually manage to be useful during a fight. What a thought, huh?

Takeshi dismounts and hurls fire at the Lamia in the pit. Acting on his command, Daisuke immediately follows the fireball and tears at the Lamia with her teeth and claws.

ooc: Dismount as a move action, ranged touch attack at the Lamia in the pit, free action to handle animal instructing Daisuke to attack the Lamia in the pit.

4:10 Pit Battle Round 3

Jiangu!, Chapter 6, Scene 4:10 Pit Battle Round 3


Gizerak and Termix hit the lamia and then Flarrgj charges up to slay it with his sword.

Major Ling and the priest regroup. The scholar begins to cast another spell.

The other lamia in the pit suddenly multiplies so that there appear to be six of them.

The archer in the pit strikes at one of them. The scholar’s two summoned apes jump down into the pit and attack. They hit two of the lamias in the pit, causing them to disappear. The lamias are revealed to be illusions, but which one is real?

Nimdor races to the edge of the pit to find out what is going on, hearing sounds of battle emanating from the pit.

In quick succession, Fugen lashes out at the two lamia closest to him.

The lamia's above dispatched, Kierna, Gizerak, and Termix make their way to join the growing crowd at the edge of the pit.

[OOC: Fugen attacks Lamia 3 images in 1050N/1020E and 1040N/1020E, using flurry of blows.

Kierna & Gizerak double move towards the pit. By my count neither can reach it, so just move them as far as possible towards it.

Termix moves to join Kierna and Gizerak.]

4:11 Pit Battle Round 4 "Kill the Henchmen of Golock"

Jiangu!, Chapter 6, Scene 4:11 Pit Battle Round 4 "Kill the Henchmen of Golock"

Gizerak, Termix, Nimdor, and Kierna run towards the pit, and have gotten about as far as the first dead lamia.
Fugen hits two of the lamias in the pit and both lamia disappear as soon as they are touched.
Brother Cobra reloads his crossbow and floats down into the pit.
The archer eliminates another lamia illusion by shooting it. There is only one lamia left. The two apes in the pit advance and maul the lamia to death.

Another ape appears next to the Cuanwei scholar.

“Now is the time!” announces the scholar. “Slay the henchmen of Golock!”

The new ape attacks Daisuke. The badger bits the ape in the leg, discovering that the ape has a supernatural toughness. The bite would normally have been viscious, but only scratches the ape. The ape claws and bites Daisuke, wounding the badger severly. Another attack like that one would kill him.

Major Ling Dao Rend steps up to Flarrgj and stabs with his sword, but Flarrgj parries the blow. The priest steps up to Major Ling and says a prayer, filling the Cuanwei knight with divine power.

Flarrgj turns his rage upon his new attackers, releasing his innate suspicion at the betrayal, attacking Ling Doa.

Having known it was coming makes the betrayal of their allies no less surprising, especially as Fugen finds it happening with himself in a pit with no less than four opponents and the emperor to protect.

Above Termix, Gizerak, and Kierna find themselves suitably positioned to take the battle directly to their new enemies and do so with a gusto.

[OOC: Fugen attacks one of the adjacent apes, fighting defensively.

Kierna shoots monk 2. Full attack with rapid shot.

Termix places a fireball at 1065N/985E with the center at a 10' high elevation. This should reduce it's footprint on the ground so that it catches opponents, but not allies.

Gizerak throws a ball of flame at the scholar.]

Nimdor is actually quite calm about the whole thing, despite the betrayal. After all, it was quite obvious to everybody it was going to happen, and at the worst possible time too.

So it is with that calmness that he turns to the nearest enemy, and fires his crossbow. He then drops it to the floor, and draws a dagger.

Takeshi curses under his breath, and he quickly casts a spell to enhance Daisuke's attacks while he tries to keep away from the huge ape.

"Daisuke, tear that overgrown monkey to pieces!"

ooc: cast magic fang on the defensive. concentration 27 , order Daisuke to attack the ape (handle animal automatic). Daisuke full attacks the ape.
Claw 1 7 damage 5
Claw 2 23 damage 4
Bite 19 damage 3

Edit: forgot to add in magic fang, each roll above (both to hit and damage) should be +1

4:12 Pit Battle Round 5- Who Dares?

Jiangu!, Chapter 6, Scene 4:12 Pit Battle Round 5- Who Dares?

Gizerak throws flame but misses.

Kierna shoots at the nearest Serpent monk. The monk deflects one arrow and the other misses.

Termix shoots a carefully-aimed fireball, narrowly avoiding any fratricide. It does the most damage to the scholar, and scorches the other Cuanwei opponents. It has no effect on the fiendish ape, which seems impervious to fire.

The Cuanwei priest calls upon the power of his stern sect to immobilize Termix, but Termix is able to resist

Takeshi’s spell empowers the claws of his badger mount. The wounded Daisuke is able to wound the mighty ape. In response the ape tears into Daisuke, almost killing him. The badger is barely able to stay conscious.

Flarrgj swipes at Major Ling but the blow is parried. Major Ling cuts into Flarrgj’s shoulder.

Fugen fights against four opponents. The archer fires an arrow at him, which Fugen bats aside. Brother Cobra drops his crossbow and circles around to swing a roundhouse kick at the messenger. “Feel the power of Serpent Style Martial Arts!” he challenges. Fugen is able to duck under the monk’s foot. The two apes assault Fugen. He is able to evade the blows of one, but cannot stay ahead of all four opponents. The second ape claws and bites him. The wounds are deep.

Suddenly a bearded man in a colorful silken sleeping gown appears across the pit. “Who dares to challenge the reign of Angara Mainu?” He quickly surveys the scene. “Jun Cuanwei, my old apprentice, and his Cuanwei clan fools! and you others must be the henchmen of Golock, may he rot in hell!”

In reply, the scholar (now known by the name of Jun Cuanwei) fires a bolt of lightning. “Die, E Hai Pi!” he cries. The bolt of lightning abruptly terminates 3 meters in front of E Hai Pi with no effect.

E Hai Pi laughs. “You will have to do better than that, Jun!”
