1 Following the chains... on Tue Apr 27, 2010 10:52 pm

The party completes their much needed rest and begins to investigate the chain noises to the south.

Before you enter the corridor leading south an image of Karavakos appears.

"Not all of us appear as we do. One of us has become an abomination. Kill us three times and win your freedom!" Hahahaha!

The image disappears, followed by the slwly fading echo of Karavakos's mocking laughter.


Is this order ok?

Order looks good to me.

The party moves on and comes to a door.

Listening at the door Candelos hears occasional chain rattling and a strange poping noise. The popping noise sounds kind of like sparks.

Thia is easily able to unlock the doors and does not see any traps.

Opening the door reveals:
Howling winds sweep past as you open the door to this chamber. Before you, a rushing vortex of energy whirls around the center of the room. Within the vortex you can barely see the form of a large humanoid figure. The figure struggles in place, as if trapped at the center of this strange storm.


The humanoid figure looks vaguely like Karavakos, but it has gray-blue skin, oversized, bulging head, a humanoid upper torso, and a lower body that ends in several long, ropey tentacles. In place of arms, it has two long tentacles that end in barbs. Around it's neck you can see a shiney key...





I've rolled initiative for the party:
Candelos, Thia, Sonya, Kaddim, then Miri

Candelos' turn...

Note:
There is a statue at each corner of the energy vortex. The statue looks like one of the robed figures you previously fought. The statues do not take up the whole square so you could move through their square, but they will slow you down.

Candelos' turn:
Move: Candelos moves into the room and immediately notices that it is very difficult to move around. The energy of the vortex seems to slow your movement.

Note: the area outside of the vortex is considered difficult terrain. If/when a PC gets into the vortex or to the inner section I'll let you know how movement is handled...

Candelos is only able to move two squares. 1SE, then 1E.

Standard: Candelos throws his shield at the abomination in the center of the room. The shield travels into the vortex and then returns to Candelos' hand.

Note:
The vortex blocks line of effect, but not line of sight. So attacks cannot be made from outside of the vortex inside.

After Candelos' takes his turn he can see the abomination struggle to break the chains with no success.



Thia's turn...

Crap I don't like that vortex nor do I like the abomination!

Not being able to shoot in there from out here is going to be tough.

Thia will move to the doorway and do a perception check to see if the vortex is caused by the statues as they seem to be connected. No attack action.

Thia's turn:
Move: Thia moves into the doorway where Candelos was
Standard: make a perception check to determine the source of the vortex.
Thia notices:

  1. That the energies from the vortex seem to flow around the statues but doesn't know if they are the source or not.
  2. The squares two squares away from the vortex seem to be mildly affected by the vortex.
  3. The squares adjacent to the vortex seem to be affected more, but she doesn't know what will happen to someone in those squares.

Sonya's turn...

I assume thats the two squares adjacent on the outward side of the vortex.
Does the two squares adjacent on the inward side look affected?

It's hard to tell.

It's like looking from a lightly snowing area through a heavily snowing area and trying to see how much snow if falling past the heavy section. Lots of interferrance.

Sonya's turn:

Sonya will do a move and a move to enable her to use all 10 squares of her movement to end up in the square to the West of the NW statue. Done...
Waraxe and Regular Heavy Shield out. I think I'm going to need the + 1 to AC and + 1 to Reflex.

Would it be 5 squares to teleport into the field from where I'm at, or am I one square short?

5 squares to get through the vortex into the inner area.
Kaddim is 2 squares from the vortex
The vortex is 2 squares wide
One more square to get past the vortex.

Note: Kaddim also sees (25 passive Arcana check) small translucent "bubbles" floating around the room. The bubbles seem to move through the room as well as float through the ceiling, walls, and floors.

Miri's turn:
Miri moves west and attempts to magic missile the NW statue.
Magic Missile 33 vs Ref (critical) hit for 17+11hp of damage.

I'm not sure what the rules are for damaging objects in 4E, but the statue is definitely an object.





After Miri takes her turn the party sees the abomination strains against his chains and break free.

Candelos' turn...

Great shot, how damaged is it? If another blow like that will drop it, I may try again to see what it does to the vortex...

You think it is about half way destroyed. Another hit like that would definitely take it out.



Currently Thia's turn...
