Carrion Crown Session 19

Session 19
DUNGEON MASTER: The party stands beside the pool watching the slimy remnants of the ectoplasmic creatures slip slowly back into the water.  Bits of human bone protrude from the masses of goop.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: "If there's anything of interest in the pool we are going to have to fish it out with a pool or something other than my hand."
SOLAR CE’NEA: I am not sure if it is worth the effort
SOLAR CE’NEA: they were ghosts, unless soemthing came here and they killed them they is unlikey something there.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: "Yeah I'm not too keen to check it out. Especially not when we have a room full of skeletons to clean out."
SOLAR CE’NEA: I think they were ghosts etc of prisoners caught here from the fire
SOLAR CE’NEA: yes maybe we should go deal with that first
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: "Damn. They have been down here for such a long time. Well hopefully they have some kind of closure and are now able to move on."
SOLAR CE’NEA: Mesodius would you mind using the wand of cure light wounds on me, I got quite some damage in that fight
SOLAR CE’NEA: Wand of cure light wounds 1d8+1=6
SOLAR CE’NEA: Thanks Mesodius, I should be find until we need a burst from other fighting.
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar recasts dancing lights
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: "Did you want us to stand either side of the passageway while you cast your spell that damages the undead from behind us?"
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: "I find it strange that they would only animate when we are close to them. Why not be animated all the time? It's not like the dead have to rest or sleep."
SOLAR CE’NEA: I suspect they become animated when we get close because they want to attack the living
SOLAR CE’NEA: Yes if you guys just stan at either side and I'll cast disrupt undead.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan and Mesodias take positions either side of the passageway with greatswords at the ready.
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar walks to the edge of the doorjust infrom of his companions but not yet in the room and cast Disrupt undead on the closest skeleton.
SOLAR CE’NEA: Disrupt Undead - (Ranged Touch Attack)
1d20+4 =21
Damage 1d6=2 against undead
DUNGEON MASTER: Solar's cold blue ray strikes the nearest skeleton to no visible effect.  However, even as the light from the spell dies away, the bones of each of the eight skeletons begin to rattle.

[Initiative please.]
SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar iniative 1d20+7=24
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan Initiative check: 1d20+4 = 16
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Mesodias Initiative check: 1d20+4 = 13
DUNGEON MASTER: [Order is: Solar, Skeletons, Johan, Mesodias.  This is a surprise round--standard actions only.]

The skeletons are scattered about in ragged robes throughout the chamber about 10'-30' away from the heroes.
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar casts disrupt undead at the closest skeleton
Disrupt Undead - (Ranged Touch Attack)
1d20+4 =20
Damage 1d6=2 against undead
DUNGEON MASTER: Solar's ray strikes the nearest skeleton, catching it directly in the skull which shatters in a spray of bone fragments and blue light.  The others slowly rattle to their feet.

[Now Johan.]
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan adopts a total defensive sword maneuver as he waits for the skeletons to approach with melee range.
DUNGEON MASTER: Mesodias does the same.
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar cast disrupt undead once again at the closest Skelleton and then moves to behind the protective wall of his companions Disrupt Undead - (Ranged Touch Attack)
1d20+4 =19
Damage 1d6=5 against undead
DUNGEON MASTER: Solar's ray sears the femur of the nearest skeleton.  It staggers but remains on its feet.
DUNGEON MASTER: The seven remaining skeletons rattle forward toward the hero's position in the narrow passageway.  With long sharp claws they tear at Johan, but his defensive posture suffices to deflect all their blows.
DUNGEON MASTER: [Now Johan.  Johan is threatened by 3 skeletons.  For more stand within 10'.]
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan swings his greatsword at the nearest skeleton in a defensive posture. (Fight Defensively)
To Hit (greatsword): 1d20+7 = 26
Confirm Critical (greatsword): 1d20+7 = 25 (Confirmed)
Damage (greatsword): 4d6+12 = 29
DUNGEON MASTER: With an almighty overhead chop, Johan shatters his skeleton into a pile of white fragments that are only slightly recognizable as bone. The red lights in the other skeleton's eyes flicker.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Seeing one skeleton drop so quickly, Mesodias growls as he moves into the cloud of bone fragments that are now settling on the prison floor. As he lumbers into position he swings down hard against a skeleton within reach. (Fight Defensively)
To Hit (greatsword): 1d20+5 = 20
Damage (greatsword): 2d6+4 = 13
DUNGEON MASTER: Mesodias crushes yet another skeleton.

As it crumbles to the ground, the smell of scorched flesh fills the chamber.  Tendrils of smoke trail out of the skeletons' eye sockets.
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar attacks with Disrupt undead once more but was clearly impressed with Johan's hit and doesnt concentrate enough to cast his spell
Disrupt Undead - (Ranged Touch Attack)
1d20+4 =1
Damage 1d6= 0 against undead
DUNGEON MASTER: Solar's ray arcs out to strike Mesodias in the buttocks.   "Ouuuaaaa!" he says.
SOLAR CE’NEA: Soooorry!!!!
DUNGEON MASTER: The smoke in the skeletons' eye sockets suddenly billows forth.  Their jaws flap with inaudible cries, as if they were being burnt alive, as they each rend Mesodias with their claws.  Fortunately, only two off the attacks land for 3hp and 2hp.

[5 skeletons surround Mesodias.  Johan has partial cover to 2 skeletons.  Two more are unthreatened  within 10' of Mesodias.]
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan's eyes begin to water as the stench assaults his nostrils. He swings greatsword against one of the skeletons. (Fight Defensively)
To Hit (greatsword): 1d20+3 = 4
Damage (greatsword): 2d6+6 =
DUNGEON MASTER: Johan's strike fails to hit the skeleton

To Hit (greatsword): 1d20+1 = 16
Damage (greatsword): 2d6+4 = 9
DUNGEON MASTER: Mesodias crushes the smoking skeleton to his south.
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar realising he needs to make some wide damage instead of using his narrow ray, moves to take out a vial of holy water and then lobs it at the Skeleton to the North east of Mesodious
Holy Damage is 1d20+4-4=16
damage is 2d4=4 to the individual skeleton and each skeleton 5 feet away takes 1 point of damage
DUNGEON MASTER: Solar's flask of holy water strikes the skeleton head on, damaging it and all those around it.  One of the skeletons to the south falls to the floor as the holy water reacts violently with the smoke pouring out of its eye sockets.

At this, the remaing four skeletons suddenly burst into flames that quickly devour their old robes.  The light vividly outlines their flapping jaws.  With renewed vigor they gather around Mesodias and strike at him.  One attack lands, doing 4 hp of damage.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan moves five foot into the position where the skeleton was before Mesodias reduced it to smoldering bones on the floor. He recovers from the initial stench of burnt flesh from the skeletons and focuses a mighty blow against his nearest foe. (Fight Defensively)
To Hit (greatsword): 1d20+3 = 23
Confirm Critical (greatsword): 1d20+3 = 8 (Fail)
Damage (greatsword): 2d6+6 = 10
DUNGEON MASTER: A fifth skeleton crumples to the floor.  As this skeleton falls, the flames that bathed it explode in a wave of fire, inflicting 4hp of damage to both Johan and Mesodias.  (Ref 11 for half.)
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan Reflex Save: 1d20+5 = 8
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Mesodias pivots on the spot, using the momentum to swing his greatsword towards one of the skeletons. (Fight Defensively)
To Hit (greatsword): 1d20+1 = 8
Damage (greatsword): 2d6+4 =
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Mesodias Reflex Save: 1d20+3 = 22
DUNGEON MASTER: Mesodias' strike fails to hit his target.  As he strikes, Mesodias takes a total of 8hp of fire damage from the three skeletons surrounding him at the start of his turn.
SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar Attacks the skeleton on the north side of mesodius with disrupt undead
Disrupt Undead - (Ranged Touch Attack)
1d20+4-4 =20
Damage 1d6=6 against undead
Critical (20x2) 1d20+4-4=13
Extra Damage 1d6=2x2=4
DUNGEON MASTER: Solar's target explodes in a flash of blue light and bone--and fire.  A second wave of fire explodes, inflicting 4 hp of fire damage to Mesodias (ref 11 for half). 

The remaining two skeletons strike out at Mesodias.  One rakes him across the throat for 8hp of damage.

[Is he still up?]
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Mesodias Reflex Save: 1d20+3 = 15
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Mesodias drops on -3 HP.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan five foot steps to confront the two remaining skeletons while attempting to cleave them with a flurry of strikes with his greatsword.

DUNGEON MASTER: Johan's attack drops both skeletons, each of which explode in a ball of fire that inflicts a total of 11hp of fire damage on both Johan and Mesodias.  (Ref 11 to halve.)
DUNGEON MASTER: [End rounds.]
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan Reflex Save: 1d20+5 = 20
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan reacts immediately, drawing his Potion of Cure Moderate Wounds, kneeling and pouring the contents into Mesodias' mouth to hopefully stablise him.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Cure Moderate Wound: 2d8+3 = 17
DUNGEON MASTER: Mesodias's eyes flutter and presently they open to look up at Johan.  "Oooooon?" he asks.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: "Come on take my hand." Johan helps Mesodias find his footing as they stand there collecting themselves smoldering with burnt and torn flesh.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Mesodias grasps his holy symbol and channels a healing burst of positive energy.
DUNGEON MASTER: Mesodias takes Johan's proffered hand and, with his help, heaves himself up.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Healing Burst: 2d6 = 11
SOLAR CE’NEA: Gorum would be very proud of your actions today mesodius.  you fought valiently and was very useful in battle
SOLAR CE’NEA: would you like me to use the cure light wounds wand on you?
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Mesodias uses one charge from the Cure Light Wound Wand. CLW: 1d6+1 = 5
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Mesodias cures himself.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Mesodias channels the wand for one more Cure Light Wounds to heal his injures: 1d8+1 = 8
DUNGEON MASTER: Four dark hallways exit from this large empty chamber, each striking out in one of the four directions of the compass, and each decorated with a soot-caked brass nameplate affixed to the ceiling just above the entrance. A rubble-choked stairway leads up in the middle of the room, while eight skeletons dressed in
scorched prisoners’ robes lie on the ground.  Each of the skeletons have been shattered into a pile of white bone fragments.
SOLAR CE’NEA: Mesodius, I have used my holy water, you have several of them can I take one of yours before we move on, it was useful in this battle.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan kicks at the pile of bones with his steel capped boot as he looks around. "These skeletons werent anything like the ones from the ground floor. Damn it they were tough!"
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar does a religion knowledge check to see what type of skeleton they were 1d20+7=19
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Mesodias opens his backpack and retrieves out two vials of holy water as he probably won't be needing them.
DUNGEON MASTER: Solar decides that these were most likely burning skeletons.
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar thanks mesodius for the holy water, and says that he suspects these skeletons were burning skeletons.  "Not a normal undead, I think the further we go in the more unussual the undead will be and away from the norm".
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar puts one vial of holy water in his belt the other in his bag
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar suggests to his companions that following the lue ladies instructions if we keep going towards the centre we will find that the "The Marauder still sits in her husband's office," then she pointed to the center of the complex.
SOLAR CE’NEA: She also told us that:    the hammer was the Mosswater Marauder's.  "The axe will aid you in your battle against the Lopper and his creations--but be warned, it is very difficult to put down his instrument once you take it up.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: With that reminder, Mesodias realises the hammer is still in his backpack. He retrieves the item and secures into his belt for the upcoming battle with the master of the hammer.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: "I think this direction is to the centre of the prision." Johan points to the west. "I recon we kick that door down to the south if nothing prevents us from doing so."
SOLAR CE’NEA: Sounds good to me.  However I would suggest caution more than bluster!
DUNGEON MASTER: The party heads out down the western coridoor, under the soot stained plaque, and toward the rusted metal door on the southern wall.  The ceilings are about 6' tall, and the walls are made of blackened brick.

The heroes reach the door without incident.  It appears that the hallway ends ahead in a block of cells, the bars of which are rust-eaten.
SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar recasts dancing lights.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan looks into the cells.
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar says to Johan, I am getting nervious about all the undead in this area, I think we are just going to encounter more I think I should cast protection from evil on you.
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar cast Protection from evil on Johan:
Protection from Evil
gains a +2 deflection bonus to AC and a +2 resistance bonus on saves.
subject immediately receives another saving throw (if one was allowed to begin with) against any spells or effects that possess or exercise mental control over the creature (including enchantment [charm] effects and enchantment [compulsion] effects). This saving throw is made with a +2 morale bonus, using the same DC as the original effect.

Third, the spell prevents bodily contact by evil summoned creatures. This causes the natural weapon attacks of such creatures to fail and the creatures to recoil if such attacks require touching the warded creature. Summoned creatures that are not evil are immune to this effect
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: "Thanks for that."
DUNGEON MASTER: Solar elbows his way back into the middle of the party.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan tests the cell door to the south if it is locked before retrieving his toolkit.
DUNGEON MASTER: The door to the south does not seem to be locked.  It is however well rusted on its hinges.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan puts some weight into the door to force it open despite being rusted.
DUNGEON MASTER: [Str please]

SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar Percpetion 1d20+3=15
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan Strength check: 1d20+4 = 21
DUNGEON MASTER: Johan bursts the door off its hinges.  Within lies a small containing a single large table with two chairs
astride it and a single sagging cot pushed up against the eastern wall. Several battered cabinets line the northern wall, with a few arrows and bits of chainmail lying scattered on the floor nearby, yet the most eerie sight are the three fractured skulls sitting on the table next to a heavy hammer. It looks as if someone has arranged the fragments of the skulls in some sort of pattern, as if an attempt had been made to construct a fourth skull from the broken fragments of the trio on the table. The leathery body of a long-dead dwarf, his wiry red hair and beard still strangely vibrant in death, lies slumped on the ground behind the table.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan sunders the dwarves skeletal body with his greatsword.
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar tells Mesodius to use the hammer instead of his normal weapon - it will hurt the undead more.
DUNGEON MASTER: The moment Johan steps into the room, he feels a sudden splitting headache while at the same time he notices the fragments of skull on the table begin rattling and shaking.  From outside the room, Solar notices the same thing.

[Initiative please.]

Holy water 1d20+4-4=14
damage 2d4=6
DUNGEON MASTER: Solar's vial shatters on the table.  A sobbing scream sounds somwhere in the distance.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan grimaces as a wave of pain washes over him from attacking the dwarven skeleton. He pivots and lashes out at one of the skull fragments with his greatsword.
To Hit (greatsword): 1d20+7 = 15
Damage (greatsword): 2d6+6 = 9
DUNGEON MASTER: The broken skull on the table--as well as the table--breaks under the strength of Johan's blow.  The remaining skulls and bits of bone slide on to the floor in a loud clatter.
DUNGEON MASTER: A spirit appearing as  a sobbing dwarf wielding a ghostly hammer materializes from the corpse. A ghostly skull floats in the air nearby, its cranium laced with cracks and missing a knife-shaped shard of bone along the side.

From the three skulls on the floor, three humanoid head rise up, floating silently and ominously, bits of flesh still hanging from their faces and graying teeth clattering slightly as they bob in the air.

The ghostly figure moves forward silently, striking Solar on the head with his hammer for 4 hp.  A ghostly fragment of Solar's skull seems to fly out toward the skull beside the ghost.  (Solar is staggered.)

One of the ghosts opens its mouth and emits a horrible scream.  (Will DC 10 or be shaken.)
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan Will Save: 1d20+5 = 14

SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar will save failed
DUNGEON MASTER: Solar drools a little bit out the right side of his mouth.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Johan attacks one of the floating skulls with his greatsword however it bobs and weaves in the air quickly underneath his blade.
To Hit (greatsword): 1d20+7 = 11
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Mesodias drops his greatsword and draws the hammer as he moves as close as possible to the skulls and ghostly image.
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Mesodias Will Save: 1d20+5 = 20
DUNGEON MASTER: The ghostly dwarf moves up to Mesodias and strikes him with his hammer for 4 hp, delivering a splitting headache as yet another fragment flies away to the ghostly skull.  The dwarf's figure regains a little of its strength.

[Mesodias is now staggered.]
SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar targets the skull that attacked Mesodius
Disrupt Undead - (Ranged Touch Attack)
Damage 1d6=3 against undead
DUNGEON MASTER: Solar's attack destroys the second skull, which shatters in a blue nimbus.  The ghost sobs as its figure fades even more.

DUNGEON MASTER: Mesodias moves up to Johan and strikes with the hammer, dealing 9 damage to the stout ranger.
DUNGEON MASTER: The dwarf slides up to Solar and strikes again with his hammer, but misses widely.  Meanwhile, the fragments on the floor reassemble and rise up again to form three floating skulls.  One of the skulls screams out [everyone will DC 10 or be shaken.]

Damage 1d6=3 against undead
DUNGEON MASTER: Solar's ray strikes the dwarf.  It sobs in shame as its figure dims even further.

To Hit (greatsword): 1d20+3 = 13
Damage (greatsword): 2d6+6 = 16
DUNGEON MASTER: "Uuuuun?" says Mesodias.

Damage (hammer): 1d6+3 = 7
Will Save: 1d20+5 = 19
DUNGEON MASTER: Mesodias seems to understand Johan's words; at any rate, his next attack strikes the dwarf rather than his companions. 

The ghostly dwarf slides up to Johan and strikes with his hammer, missing narrowly.  A skull opens its jaw and screams, chilling the heroes to the bone.  [Will DC 10 or be shaken.]

[Off rounds.]
DUNGEON MASTER: [The group gains 800xp each for the previous 2 encounters.]
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: "Hey let's get that bloody hammer into the backpack. Man I'm glad you finished that dwarf when you did otherwise I wouldn't have taken much more."

DUNGEON MASTER: Johan's skills are not up to the task of opening this secret door.

JOHAN D’ALMENTA: "Before I bust this shit apart let's have one more look for the key. It's should be in here."
JOHAN D’ALMENTA: Perception check: 1d20+10 = 20
