1 Palace of Bones on Tue Sep 21, 2010 10:00 pm

The PCs approach the doors to the north and listen.

Candelos and Thia hear low chanting by a single voice for a few rounds, then they hear a male voice ordering someone to do things (lift that, bring something here, put something somewhere else).

The door to the north is not locked.

Opening the door, the PCs see the following:
Ahead is a large room (30' ceiling) with a raised platform (10' off of the ground) to the north. The entire platform seems to be made of bones. There are also five pillars in the room which are also made of bones.

The party sees several creatures in the room
3 large sized skeletons
2 tiny sized floating (10' up) flaming skulls
1 tiefling in black robes adorned with skulls

The party also sees what looks like a doorway of bones being constructed at the back of the platform where the tiefling is. Kaddim and Miri believe that it is a portal of some type.


Seeing light come into the room the tiefling turns and says "Good I am in need of new bones. Get them!!!

The Skeletons and flaming skulls turn toward the party...


Vyrellis to Candelos:
That is the third form of Karavakos! Destroy him and we shall claim our freedom!






The PC initiative order is:
Thia
Kaddim
Sonya
Candelos
Miri



Looks like Thia is first, then Kaddim...

(Since knowledge checks are minor actions,) let us know if you know the most effective way to do just that...

Don't really think I need to. I see 3 different kinds of creature, and one is flaming and the other 2 aren't, then you destroy the fire first.

But that doesn't tell us what vulnerabilities/resistances/etc each of them have. A knowledge check can tell you that & more.

Oh, I thought you were questioning why I would pick those things as a target first. I'm going to go out on a limb and say, "Use cold attacks."

Currently Thia's turn...

Thia can seee one large skeleton clearly. The one to the left and right have cover.

You have to be in the room or just outside (where Kaddim and Candelos are) to see the floating skulls.

Thia's turn:
Move: Thia moves 5N...

When Thia moves adjacent to the pillar of bones an arm reaches out and tries to grab her.
Grab 30 vs Ac hits for 13hp of necrotic damage. Thia is restrained.

Thia has a Standard and a Minor action remaining.

Thia can still shoot, but all attacks are at -2 while restrained.

The skulls are 10' above the bone platform, which is 10' off of the ground.

So the skulls are 20' up in relation to the ground.

To get on to the platform you have to take the stairs (made of bones...) directly north, or teleport.

The platform has a small waist high railing along its perimeter (also made of bones...).

Thia will try to escape.

Thia uses a Standard action to attempt to break free of the grab (Acrobatics or Athletics check).

I'm assuming an acrobatics check since you are +13 in it.
Acrobatics skill check 16+13=29 success.

Thia is still adjacent to the pillar and has a minor action remaining.


Next up is Kaddim...

Oh, it looks like you get a free shift as part of the escape action. Where whould you like to shift to?

West please. Thia will then use her encounter power of the boots to shift two west as a minor as well please, trying to get away from the column now.

So even if I was on the platform I wouldn't be able to reach the skulls, right?
Also, how high is the ceiling? Can the skulls fly higher than what they are at now?

Correct, even if you're on the platform you can't melee the skulls.

The ceiling is 40' high, so the skulls could fly up another 10'.

Question, are the pillars in this room so large that they take up the whole square? Can a M sized person be in the same square as a pillar? On a related question, can you "cut the corner" on the pillars or do you have to move around them?

The pillars take up the whole square.

You might be able to "cut the corners" on the pillars....

Hmm, how many squares N/E do you want to go? The exact path would be helpful.


Example:
Move: 3N+1NE+2E

Remember as soon as I moved into a square adjacent to a pillar I was attacked by it.

Unfortunate... I thought we were going after Breeze (& your items), so I swapped out all the cold based attacks that I could. Sad

So, the pillars behave 'almost' like monsters... I wouldn't be surprised if they were mobile too. pale
