Re: The Corpse That Love Built - PbP

Let the cry of Bueller go forth once more and rally our forces!

Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

See if it works twice, or if it's Vancian and I get it once per "day".

Re: The Corpse That Love Built - PbP

Despite the nearly irresistible curiosity, Kylessa averts her eyes from the tank containing the so -called "medusa-fish hybrid". Unwilling to touch the strange orange material besmirching the tome, she resolves herself to sate her appetite for arcane lore on less tainted fare hoped for farther in. ...

Re: The Corpse That Love Built - PbP

Kylessa moves toward the book carefully, eyeing the cages warily with dagger drawn. Could this be the mad doctor's notes? Or better yet, a spellbook? She eyes the open pages not wanting to touch the gelatinous substance unless she must.

What's it say? What's it say? :mrgreen:

Kylessa returns from her brief survey of the perimeter:

Re: The Corpse That Love Built - PbP

WHEW! I can post again! I was on some weird Spamhaus blacklist for a couple days... was I hacked? Anyway... Kylessa raises a cautionary gesture to Obadiah as he starts for the door and whispers: "We may not want to announce ourselves just yet- perhaps we try an unexpected angle?" Is the door the onl...

"I can take my lumps like the lot of ye- shall I go first then, maybe scout for a bit?"

...as in, shall we send her first since she hasn’t been hit yet and you two have? :mrgreen:

Re: The Corpse That Love Built - PbP

Kylessa enthusiastically claps Hodin and Obadiah on the back, grinning furiously. "Good show, gentlemen!" Then, quietly, "Why do you suppose the other two didn't attack?" Considering this (and their responses) for a minute, she shrugs and begins collecting a sample of the twitchy meat. Heh, "twitch...

Hodin will attempt the same action/deed on the remaining contraption: striking it with his longsword and using his deed to push it backward (or to the ground).

Deed roll 1d4 = 1
Atk roll 1d20+1+1 = 22 (rolled a Nat 20)
Dmg roll 1d8+1+1 = 9
NICE!

Kylessa cries out delighted at the demise of the construct: "Good one, boys! We got 'em on the ropes!"

She lobs another stone at the remaining animated horror...

Obadiah lets out a stream of curses as the club strikes him, and lashes out with his spear, aiming low in an attempt to strike the thing and then flip it over on its back like a crab.

Deed roll 1d4=4
Atk roll 1d20+5=17
Dmg roll 1d8+5=8

Murmuring an incantation, Kylessa quickly produces a knife and pricks her finger. She then pops her bloodied digit into the mouth of her doll, nursing it on her Strength to power her spells once more...

Clearly unnerved by the manikins' sudden movement, Kylessa jumps a bit and fires a wild shot with her sling at one of their heads,

Re: The Corpse That Love Built - PbP

She shrinks back from the bizarre sight of the "guards" moving toward Obadiah and Hodin.

The casting of Spider Climb with the roll I made should last 10 minutes, along with the mercurial effect of extra eyes. Just let me know when the time has elapsed, GB.

Woohoo! the Call of Bueller spell did not go unheeded! :mrgreen: I was beginning to worry! Kylessa nods at Obadiah's suggestion, then moves cautiously to inspect the manikins, wary that they might spring to life at any moment. She'll poke at them with a dagger, maybe tipping a hat back to get a bet...

The Triad attains the top of the wall and moves cautiously toward the gatehouse. The figures atop the roof do not stir as you draw nearer and nearer, until a flash of lightning illuminates them in the dark -- some sort of scarecrows or the like, they do not move as you approach and their clothing s...

Kylessa carves off a pound or so of clay, wrapping it in anything she can find on hand, and stuffs it into her pack for later use.
”Are we going out in the middle of this storm? Mara doesn't like to get wet...”

Can she carve off a bit of the clay that forms them, or tell anything about what they are?
