Tillak peers into darkness, thrusting his new lighted dagger forward, but sees nothing in the corridor.

Until the slack rope suddenly jerks against his grip, reminding him of his current chore!

[Tillak extraordinary STR feat roll please]

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Kondor swims as fast as he can towards Gundrabu - knowing that his strength will be needed to pull them both back up along the rope.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

The barbarian pulls as hard as he can against the onslaught, and Gundrabu is approaching fast, more  carried on the current to Kondor than Kondor actually getting anywhere...

Tillak follows Gundrabu and Kondor.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

[Wha......? ]

Leaving Kondor's armor and gear on the edge, Tillak decides that if Gundrabu can jump in fully armored, than he can too! and jumps into the raging stream, quickly realizing that in order to keep his head above the water and not drown, he will definitely need to drop both his new lighted dagger and the rope!!!

[Tillak roll extraordinary feat of STR for starters!]

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Gundrabu collides into Kondor and they flail in the water for a moment sucking further and further into darkness before.....SLAM. They are suddenly stoped by a large grate blocking the tunnel....the force of the water holding both firmly against the bars!

[Gundrabu roll DEX TEST]

Does making you laugh earn me enough XP that I go up in level, gain hit points immediately, and thereby survive this encounter? Yes? No?

3!

And FYI, it totally makes sense if Gundrabu didn’t have time, and it’s more realistic if we go with that, but...

I mentioned that Gundrabu “stripped” (without checking, I think that’s the word I chose) before tying the rope around his waist and diving in.

YOu said SHEDS. Correction stands Gundrabu +100 XP for DM humiliation!

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Armorless bonus to roll results in Gundrabu holding the dagger and  able to get a grip on tone of the bars to keep head above water line in spite of the massive force of pressure.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

OOC: I thought I had already posted that! 

Tillak looks down at Gundrabu and Kondor. 

"Bothers!"

[I am confused by Tillak's actions. I thought he jumped in the water in order to follow Gundrabu and Kondor after he heard the strange whistling behind him. Is this not correct? ]

Sully, we’re trying to make sense of this action in the context of ongoing events.

[That's right sorry.]

Tillak begins swimming towards his companions.

Tillak struggles to swim but his armor restricts his movements. The rush of water is strong enough to carry him along but also holds him under.  As panic sets in, the esquimaux's lungs begin to ache for air.
