Mordax snarls and presses the dog before him.

Hit: 1d20=20+12 = 32 (natch!)
Dmg: 1d10+6=16 (Max Dmg on a Crit)

DM EDIT: OOC: Attacking the dog? I hope you're calling the Sub a "dog" and not not actually attacking Hound. Hehe.

OOC: Also ... the Potion and Healing-Word both require you to spend a Surge in order to be healed; but you only had one left. You drank the potion first (which used up your last surge), so Healing Word should have no effect on you (but I don't think you added those points, anyway). I went ahead and subtracted that last surge for you.

Then, after you took the potion, the Subcommander hit you for 10 (Round 5, Init 6).
So, you should be at 42, correct? I adjusted that, also
.

OOC: Correct on all counts, and, tae'!

Alex: HP 17/45; AC 22 Fort 15 Ref 21 Will 21; Surges 6/6 Action Points 1
------------------------------------

Alex grunts as a barrage of stones hurled through the air pound him from various directions.

As it looks like Mordax and Verity are handling the situation well, Alex helps out the imperial soldiers. the rain around them turns to boiling hot steam as the puddles rise from the ground to burn the skin.

Then Alex narrows his eyes at the rockbender, and throws his arms into the air in his direction.

It is as if a giant shockwave has shaken the earth. All the water on the floor rises in a terrifying wave chilled to icy temperatures -smashing towards the rockbender! As sturdy as dwarves are, Alex hopes its enough to keep him away for the moment, not having time to check he dashes as far away from the magic user as possible.

-------------------------
Standard: Boiling Mist; Area burst 1 centered on F15 (or, as many bolters as possible by the time its my turn).
Attacks: 18, 22, 21, 13 vs. Reflex
Damage: 12 Fire
Standard (AP! +2 bonus from Straegis): Blizzard Wave vs. Rockbender
Attack: 17 vs. Fortitude
Damage: 13 Force and on a Hit, push the target back 3 squares and knock it prone (but, you know, its a dwarf! And I probably missed).
Move: aa22

Malazek wrote:Round 6 Resolution & Recap ...

Init 22
Davin spins and takes aim, sending two arrows into the upper body of a Bolter. That Bolter shoots back, barely missing; and then clutches his skull and dies, spilling blood over the side of the platform.

The other Bolters fire at the Cavaliers and scramble around, trying to both hold the ladder and avoid suffering anymore psychic damage. A couple even decide to make a break for it. Those who fail to escape the baleful whispers are again tortured by it.

Init 21
Pressing the Subcommander, Mordax snarls and smacks the Dwarf hard with the magical hammer.

Init 12
Hound makes a dash under the trebuchet and comes to Mordax's aid, nipping at the Subcommander.

After climbing onto the platform, Straegis rushes the moving Dwarves and strikes one with a well-placed blow that leaves an opening for Agatha. With a shout, he informs the hag of the opportunity.

The Cavalier that helped him up, begins to ride around to the other side of the warmachine.

Init 8
With a few quick words of prayer, Verity heals himself and brings his fallen brother back from death's jaws. With the power of Revenge, he skewers the head of the Sucommander (killing him), heals Alex, and rewards himself in divine vigor.

Seeing that Mordax and Verity have things under control, Alex burns the Bolters above the Cavaliers. (F15? I think you meant P15, but since I can't be sure I'll give you the benefit of a doubt and move that over to O15 so that the Cavaliers don't get caught in that blast. 3 Bolters are injured) ... Before running to safety, he also tries to smash the Rockbender with an icy tidal wave; the hearty Dwarf shrugs off the the chilling bite of the icy, but is forced back several paces.

Following Straegis's command, Agatha steps from around the wheel and bellows a thunderous howl that blasts the bolters away from Straegis. (They were both hit and damaged, and pushed 2 squares away from Agatha)

Init 6
Two of the Cavaliers, fully aware that they can't push the Dwarves from the ledge) climb the ladder and chop at the Bolters with their swords; killing one of them. The other Cavaliers readied themselves to climb the ladder, should their comrades fall.

Sensing the battle is lost, the Rockbender flees.

With their leader down and their magic-users on the run, the Engineers also make a break for it ... and are quickly cut down by Mordax, Verity, Hound, and Fortis.

As a Free Action ... the 6 remaining Bolters surrender.

Loosening his grip on Verity, Corporal Servinus turns to Mordax and says "Yes, sir. By my estimation, we are down 40 men and 5 horses. That means, we have 35 horses to reign in. I'm sure the prisoners can be tied upon a few of those."

Looking to the north, he watches as another distant warmachine goes up in flames. "How do you suggest we destroy it? We brought carpentry hammers and lumber axes, as well as flagons of naphta, but I was told you guys are the experts."

Meanwhile, the rest of the Cavaliers have bound the last six Dwarves.

He tosses his hair out of his eyes and regards his battered body. Covered in dirt, soil and blood (a large amount of it his own). He flops onto the floor and cries out in pain.

"UGH!" Noticing for the first time a sturdy bolt sticking out of his side. He stretches out on the floor (a peculiar site indeed) so he can deal with this quickly.

He tears his blue jerkin around the bolt with a knife made of ice. Still laying down, he covers the wound in ice to numb the pain and then yanks out the bolt. "HAI!" He prevents and blood loss by controlling the fluids within his body, and presses the two sides of the wound together, finally covering it with more ice.

Getting to his feet steadily, he adresses the blood loss in his shoulder from the axe wound, and manages the swelling where the rockbender sent a volley of stones at him. He'll probably still bruise, but they will just be purple, and not an angry green.

Satisfied. He brushes himself off and joins in the conversation. Too weary to talk. He busies himself with removing the blood and attempting to clean his clothes. His Jerkin, however, has seen better days. He managed to remove the water off the blood, but it has left him with a dry stain, and, of course, he had to tear it to get at the bolt. He gives a little sigh and slides to a position next to Verity and gracefully thanks him. "Thank you for coming to my aid Verity, I do not know what I would have done if that dwarf had stayed so close to me." And he does the same to Davin, who finished off the Hammerer.

"Wha? We've met?" Verity realizes that Mordax has mistaken Fortis for Frater, probably because the two look so much alike.

Mordax wrote:Craning his neck upwards, he says "Ye've naptha? Douse it an' burn it."
"Very well." He runs over to his men and relays the order.

The Cavaliers comence to smashing their naphta-filled clay jugs against the support beams of the trebuchet, creating a nasty fire that even the rain can't extinguish. By the time they've climbed off of the wooden structure, it's plenty ablaze, and spitting thick black fire towards the sky.

And several similiar smoking fires appear in the distance, each about half a mile apart. Within minutes, the lights stretch as far as you can see, and then further.

"The rout of these war machines will hearten the good people of the seven hills. It insures we will have a capital left to defend, and make the coming siege much more bearable.

Verity passes the flask and clasps his friend's good shoulder. "I'm sure you'd have done me the same, were our Fates reversed. Too, we both have much reason to see an end to these scheming dwarves." He gazes off through the sheets of rain pelting the wind - whipped battlefield. "Curse those cowards who fled. Their day shall come though. The Queen always gets her due."
"Now to tend the fallen" Verity eulogizes the dead. He cannot light the customary candle to light their way to the Queen, but the towering conflagration of the trebuchet serves well in it's stead.

I will spend one surge to be at max hit points.

Davin trots over to the others as Hound lopes to join his master and greets Fortis with a silent nod. Then I turn to Agatha.

"Thank you again, Agatha. Your help may have been the difference between success and failure this night."

As Mordax begins to scribble his note, Davin speaks up.

"You don't want to stay here tonight and leave at first light? I could use some more arrows before we head off, and I am curious as to how the others fared."

"Isn't there a Aquamancer stronghold very close to the Cave Temple? Agatha - if we provided the reagents to work the magic, could you Portal us there? That would cut our travel time down by 10 days."

I would prefer to spend the night here and leave at first light, or provision, check in with Ferell and the others, and then portal tonight. Of course, we are not sure what we will be portalling into...so option 1 is the best bet, I feel.

"Now, me bitch, we've unfinished business, you an' I. Ye an' yuir sisters 'ave escaped me fer' tha' last time. Yuir skull belongs on me' mantle, along wi' tha' ten I've already collected fraem yuir coven. O'er twenty years now I've hunted you an' yuir kin, fer' tha' damage done tae mine. Unlike yuir jealous sister, I willnae strike fraem tha' shadows like a venomous snake. This is yuir warning, hag. Defend yuirsel'."

With that pronouncement, Mordax falls into a fighting stance, net raised to the front, hammer raised to the side, and advances on the hated enemy.

Davin takes a few steps back, with his bow still in hand and levels his gaze on the warrior.

"I stand with Agatha, Mordax. It was my idea to summon her, and I would never have done so if I knew it would lead her to this."

Sensing the tension in the air, Hound begins a low, rumbling growl.

Lowering his hammer slightly, he stops, and says "Very weel, witch, I'll stay my vengeance another night. Fer' tha' love I bear me companion, mind, who's been fooled by yer' false whiles. Yer' help in huntin' yuir sisters I'll take, an' I swear agin' by all tha' gods tha' I'll no rest until they be sent back tae tha' hell tha' spawned 'em.

Mark me weel, though; should ye' cross me, or harm in any way these virtuous folk, ye'll wish fer' tha' sweet kiss o' death 'afore I'm done wi' ye."


He then stalks into the wet night, seeking solace amidst the shadows.

"Thank ye" she says, as Mordax dissappears into the rainy darkness.

As far is this note is conscerned: Should I deliver it (as Mordax requested) or will you be resting up in the city before you leave (as Davin suggested)?"


Agatha weighs in, "Ah'll be stayin' long as m'sista is 'ere, an' ah think Mordax'd fin' relief if'n it too. Straegis, what d'ya think? Will spendin' the'night 'ere greatly affect yer coun'erattack? How 'bout if we cin portal ya a greater part o' th'distance? An' Alex, d'ya have the sigil sequence needed fer it?"

OOC: You do. All seekers are given the sigil sequence to Imil and Jaru, even if they can't cast the ritual when they set out.

In ominous fashion, the Aqeaus Templar suddenly flashes a bright bluish-white light (just like the flash it emitted when Alex had it on in the street outside of Ferall's barracks). For a brief moment, Verity senses a feeling of longing radiating from the Templar; but it quickly subsides.

"Well, I'm glad that thing didn't flash like that when you six were sneaking into position."

Hound barks.

"Huh? Oh, sorry. ... you seven, I mean."

"Yes. I have the sigil sequence." He nods.


Straegis laughs a little at Alex's compliment, but then he thinks to himself how much he actually enjoyed using the magic. He says "Surely you jest Alex, perhaps it would be the other way around?"

"I'm serious. Just...tell me how to do it. I know some of the theory behind the...erm...non-elemental magics, but, I've always been a little interested in them to say the least. How did you make the fire?"
Halcyon wrote:Verity watches Mordax stalk off. "Life hasn't left that one much but his grief and anger", he notes sadly. "Sorry Agatha, I thought he'd put his quarrel with you behind him. Though I have to admit, he never said as much."
"If the cavalry is heading back to the city, I'm all for joining the convoy. No sense weathering this tempest with battalions of dwarves about. It'll give me and the corporal a chance to catch up besides. Straegis?"
"The portal of Jaru - of course! I should have thought of it, for pilgrims use it for travel to the Cave Temple - or, rather used it.
"The Queen commands we hurry and so with this portal we shall. But into what? Could it be that the dwarves have taken Jaru too?"

"I overheard that we can Portal to Jaru. Excellent."

"We are all weary and have hurts that a night's rest among friends will soothe. Let us go report to the General and sleep in his command base. I can resupply, and since you are staying here, Agatha, we can introduce you to our allies there."

"Fortis - can I see that note?"


After he hands it to me, I tear off the bottom of it - the part that said we were departing, leaving Mordax's recommendation for promotion and signature.

"Perfect." I hand the note back to the Cavalier with a grin.

"Now you can deliver that without confusion. Let us all ride back together, in case we have to face any remaining Dwarves. We can tie the prisoners to the back of the wagon. Your Cavaliers can surround them and we can keep an eye from the inside."

I jump down and help tie the prisoners to the wagon (Passive Nature 28), and then jump up in the drivers seat, whistling for Hound to join me.

"HYAA! HYAA!"
