Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Kondor bellows a battle cry and slashes the first creature with his blade.

Hoping that the cry will rouse his companion, he leaves that concern to fate: now only swordplay exists for the barbarian!

D6:4
D20: 1! So a4
D10: 10+3
D20: 20! 23
D10: 7+3

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

ooc: So... Should I roll for a fumble on that nat 1?  Or a crit for the nat 20?  Do they cancel each other out? I rolled the 1 while thinking "these expensive dice may not roll well all the time (ie: loaded in my favour) but I paid for them so I better use them", and then saw the 1. Then I rolled the dice and they were like "Just kidding! 20!"

Also:  Poison! Every time, poison gets me! I'm going to have a half-dozen characters show up at once next time, so we don't have to pretend it's a too-scattered search party.

Also: My impression is that our sleeping Sol is welcome to start posting whenever. I welcome Sol's posting. Because Sol (and his player) are the best ever... certainly doing better than I am this time round.  Maybe another holy handgrenade of antioch?

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

1E doesn't utilize critical misses, but it does use critical hits. so roll an extra d6 so we can check the chart, if Kondor lives that long!

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Creatures roll a 5, and winning the initiative, they continue their awful snipping with those razor mouth pincers!

The first one continues gnawing through the studded leather down below but doesn't quite get through the tough hide.
Having gotten a taste of the barbarian's wild blood, the second one moves around Kondor's torso to get in a better position for a rear neck attack.

So far Sol remains dead asleep.
Kondor swipes at the creature crawling to his back but it's an impossible angle!
He drops his blade against the one at his leg, slicing it in half. It falls to the floor and its multi legs quiver in death throes!

begin Round 3!

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

The Centipede witnesses the deadly flash of steel and leaps away for the safety of the courtyard!
But it is not fast enough for the keen barbarian, who has guessed its cowardice! He cleaves the beast to bits in the doorway.

"Wha?"
Sol stirs.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Sol rubs the sleep from his eyes.
Kondor is heaving and bleeding from the neck.

Sol, welcome back and roll new HP for levelling up!

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

"*huff* *huff* *huff*" Kondor pants.  He then sits down, lifts his leg to his mouth and sucks the poison from his thigh, spits, then does it again.

ooc: Barbarian special ability, yeah!

When finished, he rubs the Jackalope's paw over his wounds to cure them.

Unfortunately, the centipede on Kondor's leg, never got through the leather, 'twas the one at his neck that drew first blood.

Would Sol care to do the honors?  Or Jackalope application only?

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

We have to save the paw for Emral Jr... Sol will do the honors

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Sol draws at the barbarian's neck for a several moments, then spits the hot red blood onto the stone floor in a splat. 

Sol roll d12.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Kondor gives him specific advice for drawing the poison out.

When finished he a) shows Sol the leather socks(?), and (b) shows him the healing powers of the jackalope paw by rubbing it over his wounds.
“Emral showed me that it can provide minor healing each day. It has never run out yet.”

Then Kondor looks into the final hole, now that the murderous centipedes are dead.

Sol wipes his mouth and says he doesn’t taste any poison.

Sol watches in awe as the paw seals the ragged torn flesh whole.
Kondor add 2 HP.
Kondor holds out the leather socks, eager to peer inside the last hole.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Puts the socks to one side, then looks into the hole.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Kondor places the leather socks on the floor near Sol and lights another paper torch.
The bottom of the hole is filled with matted down twigs and straw.
