Round 15: One For Andrej


Before the hydra attacks

The hydra only has one attack, and it chooses to spend it on Andrej.  It rolls a 16 on a d20, hitting AC 0 ... and 2d8 causes 11 damage. 

That too is a wound.  Andrej is pushed back to 2815, staggering but still in it - stunned, of course.

Lukas takes a point of damage from his wound.



Lukas' spell is ready to go.  Enrico may load; Sofia and Ahmet take what action they will.

Is everyone okay with these numbers?  1.5 added to Maximillian for faerie fire.

I'm commuting home. I should be there in about 40 minutes.

Ahmet said...

Enrico loads.

If Ahmet advances one hex to 3013, can he attack the body? With the way I've been rolling, maybe I want an easier target.

Maximillian said...

I ready my bola

Maximillian said...

By the way, thanks. This is exciting.

Lukas said...

Lukas releases his magic missile at the near head in 3012.

I'm hoping if it's overkill there's some applied to body...

d4+1: 5

The magic missile that could... hopefully.

If not I may or may not be about to be bit again.

I'm not going to move forwards in the hope that they will bite at me rather than Max if they rush forwards.

Alexis Smolensk said...

LOL ... I was wondering if you'd notice that, Ahmet.

YES!! Yes, the body is exposed. You may move to 3013 and swing!

Bola noted.

Lukas stuns the middle head but does not kill it.

Andrej said...

(OOC: Thanks Alexis, though I ended up getting tied up there for a few hours it sure is nice to be able to play a turn from home.)

Sofia moves to 2914 and open hand attacks the head in 3014.

to hit: 18
dmg: 1

An unlikely attack, I know, but hopefully she just bought Andrej a round.

Ahmet said...

"ALLAHU AKBAR!"

Seeing at last an opening, Ahmet charges forward toward the body of the great beast. Dilmek flashes in the torchlight as he whirls it overhead before slashing mightily at the hydra.

To hit: 17
Damage: 10

Alexis Smolensk said...

Lukas' magic missile causes the body to convulse - the middle head in particular seems very affected.

Then Ahmet's blow causes the whole body of the hydra to shudder and writhe ... the three heads upon their necks open their mouths and wail, helpless to strike back at their enemies.

All three heads of the hydra are stunned.

Without needing to put up another post, the party can go again. Enrico is loaded; Ahmet can swing. Maximillian can let go his bola. Remember that Sofia is in 2914 and the Andrej is no longer stunned, and can therefore swing if Sofia moves; there's no combat penalty for Sofia to circle the beast, as it is fully stunned - otherwise it would take three AP to change hexes from where she is.

(OOC: I cannot leave my place of work today until all my work is wrapped up neat for the week I'll be gone. I'll try to give as much attention as I can to the campaign, but I don't want to be here until midnight)

Ahmet said...

Ahmet continues hacking away at the body.

To hit: 21 (rolled a 19... guess I didn't need to go after the body!)
Damage: 8

Enrico fires at the body.

To hit: 12
Damage: 4

Alexis Smolensk said...

I'm afraid that's going to steal the last bit of hit points. I have the beast listed as having 10 hit points left.

If someone has a dexterity higher than 11 you can steal a few x.p. out of Enrico's pocket; if your dex is higher than 14, you may steal some from both Ahmet and Enrico if you hit.

Andrej said...

Sofia moves to 3115 to strike open-handed at the body:

to hit: 14
dmg: 1

Andrej casts aid

Andrej said...

Sofia steals some XP with a 15 DEX

Andrej said...

(OOC: That was fucking great. I mean, really, really fucking great. Good show all around, boys.)

Alexis Smolensk said...

In finding the treasure of the room, imagine the six of you staggering around in the final cave, with torches, peering under the surface of the water. The depth never appreciably changes, but you get a slight sense of the water getting colder where the hydra retreated to after the first confrontation. Maximillian the Druid can confirm that this seems to be where the spring emanates from.

Alexis Smolensk said...

I've put up a figure on the main post for the amount of damage taken and delivered per participant. Can the party please confirm these numbers.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Oh, the last 8 damage hasn't been added - waiting for Maximillian and Lukas to respond.

Ahmet said...

Wow! That was an epic battle!

Lukas said...

Lukas WOULD have thrown his dart, with a dex of 16 he would have gone before a few people... But with the metaknowledge I wouldn't mind just not and wrapping it up.

That said, before we search for treasure, can anyone stop my bleeding without using a salve?

(I probably just bled again btw)

Lukas said...

Also we need to get the heads somehow. If you don't want them, I would like them. I think it would be particularly impressive to return to town with at least one as proof of the deed.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Well, Lukas and Andrej can both immediately begin binding wounds instead of attacking the creature ... so no, you won't have lost another point of damage, and you will stop bleeding (no salve necessary).

I'll put up the experience and the treasure on a new post. 20 minutes.

Ahmet said...

(OOC: Oh, how I long for Emmanuel and his cart...)

Lukas said...

I'm telling you, all we have to do is bring one head back down that road with all those people, and we'll have use of a cart until we scour this place clean.

James C. said...

Sofia binds Lukas's wounds using bandages from her backpack.

Andrej uses the aid spell he cats upon himself, healing his wound as well as 13 hp, bringing his total back up to 24.

I concur on the damage given & taken.

Lukas said...

FYI that thing had about 115 HP.

Andrej said...

Concur with Lukas and had the same idea. They brought the boys up the hill in a cart. We should take the cart back down the hill filled with loot and hydra heads.

Ahmet said...

Enrico lights a second torch (or is it a third torch?). He and Ahmet search around in the surrounding gloom for any other signs of danger.

Alexis Smolensk said...

To find all the treasure, you'll all need to light torches.

Might just as well take them off your lists.

Andrej said...

Torches are gone. Rubbing hands in anticipation.

We should gather all of the treasure and pile it up by the dry spot near the tunnel entrance. Andrej can then cast detect magic either there or above ground once we haul it up.

Andrej said...

Meaning Andrej and Sofia each expend a torch.

Lukas said...

I will cast bluelight, which I believe lasts until I cast another spell, unless the actual description has changed.

Alexis Smolensk said...

The next post is up.

Maximillian said...

I got enough exp...
I already stole damage through the faerie fire ;)
