OOC: They actually make miniatures of dwarven labor activists?! Oh brave new world et al...

Initiative for Yatagan: 8

The Dragonborn paladin walks at a measured pace into battle, pausing briefly to pass his axe under his tail and anoint it with the seed of justice.

Vox draws his crossbow and darts forward, dropping into a crouch by the waterside. He levels his bow at one of the beetles and fires , driving the bolt into one of its leg joints.

OOC: Should have rolled everything at once, but....

Move to D4, use Trick Strike on Beetle 2. 22 to-hit vs. AC, 35 damage, move it to 6L. Hopefully.

Lizzy moves up to F5 to confront the first spitting lizard beastie. He swings his greataxe with care, aiming for the creature's neck.

ooc: if I hit with a 22, then I think I do 14 pts. damage... Sorry I don't have my character sheet at work!

"Leave those kitties alone!" yells Odanais as he runs up to the water's edge [D3] and reaches out with his mind to grasp the other fire beetle in a tremendous hand of glistening ice.


Bigby's Icy Grasp: 18 vs Reflex. If successful, that's 16 points cold damage and the beetle is held tight. If possible he will try to aim its... ahem... fire hole away from the house and in some harmless direction.

Penelope scowls briefly at Yatagan. "There's nothing wrong with caring about cats," she mutters, stringing her bow and taking aim at the closest enemy.

OOC: Initiative - 24

Hit - 15 and 14 vs AC... according to Shil, I suck and that doesn't hit!

The League bursts into action like a sticky, well-lubricated ... er, bursts into action.

Vox moves up, firing his hand crossbow. The bolt sinks deep into one of the rear legs of the beetle further away from him, causing it to shriek in agony and stagger backwards. A couple of arrows from Penelope flash by Vox a moment later, only to splinter the crates half-hiding the closest drake.

The newest addition to the League strides up, greataxe swinging, with better effect. As the wounded drake attempts to backpedal from Lizzy, Heyoka rushes up too, swinging his double-bladed sword and decapitating the drake.

Odanais moves up too, conjuring up an icy hand which grabs the unwounded beetle, both chilling it with cold and holding it in place. But only temporarily, as the beetle scrabbles desperately and breaks away from the hand. It heads for Heyoka and Lizzy, followed by the one wounded by Vox.

To make matters worse, both Lizzy and Heyoka spot a third beetle, which had been a little way down the street parallel to the one they came up, hidden from sight by the intervening building. This one too turns and rushes at them. As the three beetles bracket the two warriors, all of them breathe blasts of flame. Two of the blasts wash over Heyoka, while the third beetle's breath extends out to Vox and Odanais. Lizzy, unfortunately, is caught in the blast of all three.

While all four of the adventurers are burned, there is a little good luck for Heyoka. The two drakes, seeing the adventurers attack, leave their feast and move forward, spitting gobs of acidic in his direction and missing woefully.


OOC: Your turn to go, so roll and post. Excel sheet is on the way.

Enemy status and damage taken: Drake 1 (dead), Beetle 1 (16 pts), Beetle 2 (35 pts)

Damage taken by PCs: Lizzy (35 pts fire), Heyoka (20 pts fire), Odanais (15 pts fire), Vox (15 pts fire)

Lizzy turns to beetle #3. "My mother burned me once. ONCE." He spits and attacks with crushing blow (+10 vs. AC, 2d12+8 damage)

To hit: 28

Damage: 20

Vox produces a rod of black iron from within his coat, points it at the beetle that he shot previously, and pronounces a Word. Even as he does, he fires his crossbow again....

OOC: Ready the Quickcurse Rod, use Deft Strike to move to E3, curse Beetle 2, and shoot it.

Or not. 15 to-hit vs. AC, 10 damage. If that does hit, move it to I5.

Yatagan strides forward confidently, though careful for avoid the fire beetles mandibles as he rounds (C5-->D5-->E4) Lizzie. "Stand fast comrade, I shall share my righteous vitality with you momentarily".
He flicks his axe at the beetle in front of Lizzie, spattering it with justice.

edit: strike that... I forgot I have a new Daily...

The Dragonborn paladin sidles up to Heyoka, walking a little strangely, as if in communion with the Codpiece God. He suddenly squats down while lifting his tail and banging his shield with the flat of his axe. A milky radiance spills onto the ground, rapidly expanding into a circle. It seems to burn his foes, while filling his allies with a sense of --albeit sticky-- security.

OOC: Mark Beetle 2, move next to Heyoka, use Hallowed Circle, close burst 3, 16/crit/12 vs. REF, dam 9,17,12. Allies gain +1 to all Defenses until the end of the encounter.

In case that affects other people's actions, Lizzy hits, Vox misses and Yatagan's attack hits only beetle 2, which has now taken 54 hp and is bloodied (beetles 1 and 3 are hurt, but not bloodied).

While meditating to maintain the icy hand, Odanais exhales a weary sigh at the beetles and approaching drakes, a sigh that finds each of them, seeping deeply into their suddenly exhausted bodies.

Sleep (vs. will): Beetle 2 (13), Beetle 1 (14), Drake 2 (24), Drake 3 (26)

Odanais focuses his orb's power on the nearest drake, making his spell harder for it to resist.

[-3 to saving throws for Drake 2.]

Penelope takes careful aim and fires two arrows, one at each of the two more wounded beetles. As she fires, she says to Sappho, "Go help your people ... er, other cats."


OOC: Use Split the Tree on beetles 2 & 3, hitting AC 23 on each and doing 21 pts damage to each (+1d6 damage to beetle3, due to quarry).

Rolling for Heyoka...

Use Rain of Blows, attacking one foe twice with a 28 and 24 (10 and 9 damage), and then natural 1 vs. another enemy.

Yatagan moves up to join his comrades, utilizing one of the powers newly granted him by the Dragon Within to both ward his friends and strike his enemies with sticky goodness/badness, though only one of the beetles actually seems to be affected.

Vox also moves, cursing the more wounded beetle and shooting at it, but the bolt skips off its carapace. Penelope's arrows, however, have more effect, badly wounding the one beetle and also striking the unwounded one. Which is also smashed by Lizzy's greataxe, which dents its carapace.

Heyoka unleashes a rain of blows on the most wounded beetle too, striking it multiple times until it collapses, legs twitching feebly. He continues to swing his sword wildly, striking the other two beetles

Odanais uses a sleep spell, failing to affect a beetle but slowing the movements of the two drakes.

One of the beetles breathes fire again, and though Yatagan's circle protects him, Heyoka, Lizzy and Vox are not as lucky, being scorched by the flames, especially Lizzy, who collapses unconscious. The beetle which had been smashed by him goes for the closest rears up and chomps down on Heyoka.

The drakes, seeming confused by Odanais' spell, back away, spitting acid at the closest of their enemies - Heyoka. The shifter collapses under the attack. Odanais' spell then takes full effect, causing one of the two to keel over (ironically, not the one which he used his orb against).


OOC: Your turn to go, so roll and post. Excel sheet is on the way.

Enemy status and damage taken: Drake 1 (dead), Drake 2 (unconscious), Drake 3 (doing just fine), Beetle 1 (26 pts; slowed), Beetle 2 (dead), Beetle 3 (45 pts; bloodied)

Damage taken by PCs: Lizzy (56 damage; unconscious), Heyoka (55 pts; unconscious), Odanais (15 pts), Vox (26 pts)

Vox draws his sword and lunges forward...whether to attack a beetle or to escpae Yatigan's proximity is difficult to say.

OOC: Draw sword, move to E5, use Positioning Strike on Beetle 3.

Oy. That's a 13 vs. Will, 7 points of damage, and -- on the very odd chance that this hits -- move the beetle to G3...and thus into the water.

Yatagan moves to stand protectively over his fallen comrade Heyoka. His axe sings a through the air, missing the most wounded fire beetle. He then touches Lizzie's motionless body with tail, shouting "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs!", which is something he once read somewhere that seems appropriate. There is a brief flash of proletariat light.

OOC: move to G5, use Invigorating Strike against Beetle3 11 vs. WILL, use Lay on Hands & Inspiring Word on Lizzie - gain 32 HP.

Seeing his loyal dog friend fall between two giant beetles, Odanais clenches his right hand into a fist, triggering the icy hand floating over the battle to descend on the far beetle attacking Heyoka. Then with his left hand, he makes the Sign of the Pig, sending healing energy flowing into Heyoka's body.

Bigby's Icy Grasp (vs. Reflex) on Beetle 1: 26 to hit; 14 points damage and target is grabbed (must make athletics check vs 15 or acrobatics check vs 18 to escape)

Healing to Heyoka: Surge + 6 points

Hey kids! Would you like to learn how to make the Sign of the Pig like Odanais does? Of course you would! It's very simple: Just point your finger and draw an oval in the air, then add a squiggly line for the tail! Congratulations, you just made the Sign of the Pig! Now get healing!

For the record, Vox and Yatagan both miss. Odanais hits, taking Beetle 1 almost to bloodied. Lizzy is conscious at 32 hp, so he can pick up his greataxe and stand up and attack on his turn. Heyoka, conscious at 19 hp, was healed after his turn came up, so he doesn't get to go this round.

Lizzy jumps up shouting, "5 square meters!" and looks around slightly confused. Seeing the foul beetle beastie still in front of him, he spits, "I thought I told you once..." He summons his inner brute strength, yells, "die fascist!" and swings his greataxe (+10 vs. AC, 3d12+5 damage)
