Carrion Crown Session 49

Session 49
 DUNGEON MASTER: It is now about 11 in the morning--the sky is still as bright and blue as can be.  The citizens, while not entirely civil towards the heroes, have not reassembled into any sort of mob--nor do they look like they will any time soon, given the heavily armed and armoured soldiery that Justice Aldaar (a former general of ill reputation) has patroling in the streets.
 GRUNDIG: grundig says his farewells to kendra along with the rest of the party and heads out of town on the north road to meet up with the beast.
 SOLAR CE’NEA: As Solar and his companions leave the city, he spends quite a bit of time watching to see if anyone follws them.  1d20+7=18
 DUNGEON MASTER: The party follows the north road out of Lepidstadt, mounted on horseback.  After perhaps an hour they pass the place where a small overgrown track leads off to the ruins of Sanctuary.  After about two hours they come to the place where the muddy track forks off toward Hergstag. 

It is at this fork that a lumbering gray figure ambles out of the woods, a leer etched onto its face.

"You came to meet father," the beast says, looking well-pleased.

It is now about 1 in the afternoon.
 SOLAR CE’NEA: Yes my friend, we wish to make sure you get home safely and I must admit, curiosity about who your father is.  Will he know you are coming home?
 DUNGEON MASTER: "I do not know what he knows," replies the beast, frowning.  "I cannot tell you where he lives, but..." he shrugs his shoulders and motions forward, inviting the heroes to follow.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan chuckles softly to himself as he kickes his horse into action to follow The Beast to his fathers domain. "You are one sly old dog. I don't pretend to know why you gave yourself up to the city watch when you were innocent. However I'm glad nothing untowards happened during your time in the town."
 SOLAR CE’NEA: Yes in fact I can honestly say I prefer your company my large friend to of the riffraff that were the mob last night
 DUNGEON MASTER: The beast leers at Solar and Johan with a jovial glint in its eye, and makes its way northward along the road forking away from Hergstag.
 GRUNDIG: grundig smirks at this as he continus along the road on his pony
 GRUNDIG: grundig trys a bit of casual conversation "so beast do you have any brothers or sisters"
 SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar speaks to his new friend, "firstly, what should we call you?  Secondly do you have a cloak with a hood my friend, we stand out enough as it is, but if we cover up your identity we may be less harrassed on the road.
 DUNGEON MASTER: The beast looks thoughtfully down at the gnome.  "Probably," he replies at length.

"You can call me the Beast--it's what father named me.  I have nothing with me but the clothes on my back."
 SOLAR CE’NEA: Fair enough my friend we will just have to make do.
 SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar spends the time talking to the Beast and continously looking around for people falling them.  He also suggests to Johan to use Splatterface to use his scent ability to sniff out other people on the road.
 SOLAR CE’NEA: As they are wlaking along Solar also takes the opportunity to talk to his companions about tactics.  He has noticed that they all go off in different directions in battle and that they could possibly do a more co-ordinated approach
 GRUNDIG: grundig hands solar his potion of fox cunning and mesodias his oil of keen edge
 DUNGEON MASTER: The road follows the Lesser Moutray River towards the northeast.  From time to time the heroes spot small trails leading off the road into the wooded swampland to the north, or--even less often--the occasional hooded traveler headed southwards toward the town of Lepidstadt.  Mile after mile the party rides on, until at last the shadows lengthen and the sun moves towards the mountains to the west.

At last the fens give way to a deep, rocky gorge at the northern edge of the swamp, where a peculiar building, or rather group of buildings, clings to steep cliff edges above half a dozen plummeting waterfalls. Beyond a fortified gatehouse, a stone bridge arches gracefully over the raging torrents below.

"This," says the Beast with a leer, "is Schloss Caromarc."

It is now about 5 pm.
 SOLAR CE’NEA: Well my friend, What happens now? do you walk straight in? or send a message to your father?
 GRUNDIG: what can we expect here?
 SOLAR CE’NEA: What I am really asking is are you welcome here?
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: "That is quite impressive," replies Johan as the party waits taking in the view and also for The Beasts answer.
 DUNGEON MASTER: The Beast turns back to Solar with a look that could very well be a twinkle in its eyes.  "I cannot tell you of this place.  That is a bridge.  These are towers.  I will go inside this place and I will not stop you from following me."
 SOLAR CE’NEA: Will we be welcome to those inside if we fallow you or should we wait until you have got in and send someone out to get us?
 DUNGEON MASTER: The beast speaks slowly to Solar as if he were teaching a particularily slow child.  "I cannot tell you those things," it says.  "I will not stop you from following me."
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: "How bad could it be? Sure we should be cautious but not paranoid. His father should be thankful for our effort to clear The Beast of all charges. If he doesn't welcome us then he will be disrespectful and not worthy of our company."
 SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar ask Johan to see if splatter face can smell anything that would make him nervous
 DUNGEON MASTER: The beast turns and heads up the trail towards Schloss Caromarc.

The party, and the beast who is just starting up the final ascent, are about 1000' feet from the first bridge.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: "He can smell a strong odor of Kendra's perfume on your clothing for some reason."
 GRUNDIG: grundig follows the beast through the gate once he starts moveing
 GRUNDIG: keeping an eye out for any troble

perception 1d20+14=20
 SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar looks around to sse if anything is out of place or could be dangerous to the party, he is particullay looking at the gatehouse
 SOLAR CE’NEA: Perception 1d20+7=19
 SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar feels uneasy and casts Mage armour on himself with his wand
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan and Mesodias both move forward watching out for obvious threats but keeping pace with The Beast.
 *** JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS sent battle-goat.jpg ***
 DUNGEON MASTER: The party follows the Beast up the final ascent, which is a steep, curved road leading up to the first gatehouse.

As they draw near, other details become visibile--Beyond the fortified gatehouse, a stone bridge arches gracefully over the raging torrents below.  Perched precariously beyond this is a fine, fortified manse and a ruined building that appears to have partially collapsed into the river below. A slender rope bridge, replacing the fallen remnants of a stone bridge, links to a strange tower pierced with beautiful stained glass windows depicting bizarre beasts. A further building teeters to the north of this, but how it is reached is impossible to see from here. Far above, a great tower rises from an isle of stone to the sky, ending in a great steeple topped with a huge lightning conductor.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan ruffels his hair as he inspects the void created by the collapsed stone bridge and the temporary rope bridge. "Damn Shadow is going to have fun crossing this... we might be able to get him across with some care however the horses should be secured him before we cross."
 GRUNDIG: "was this like that before?" grundig asks the beast as he points to the rope bridg
 DUNGEON MASTER: "That is a rope bridge," says the beast as he proceeds up the trail with the party on his heels.
 DUNGEON MASTER: A two-story stone gatehouse leads into the castle, topped with a crenellated tower at each corner. The main gate is closed.

Under the shadows of the tower crouch two vaguely canine beasts.

[Initiative Please.  Grundig acts in the surprise round.]
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan Initiative check: 1d20+4 = 15
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Mesodias Intiative check: 1d20+4 = 9
 SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar initiative 1d20+7=19
 GRUNDIG: grundig holds out his hand with his thumb and littel finger sticking out tilting his head from side to side trys to carlm the animals down

wild empathy 1d20+7=21
 DUNGEON MASTER: The animals are of an unusual breed--foul-smelling fluids ooze from weeping sores across their scaly skin.  Despite Grundig's entreaties, they heave to their feat and lunge forward to attack.
 SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar takes a ove action to identify what these animals are knowledge arcana 1d20+16=30 and depending what he finds out may cast grease
 DUNGEON MASTER: Solar knows that these are trollhounds--nasty creatures that do the bidding of their troll masters.
 DUNGEON MASTER: Solar also knows that they are resistant to most damage except acid and fire.
 SOLAR CE’NEA: SOlar lets his companions know what he knows about Trollhounds and then gets out several vials of acid ready to through them
 GRUNDIG: grundig fires a fire bolt at the lead dog

ranged touch attack 1d20+8=26

damage 1d6+3=9
 DUNGEON MASTER: Grundig does significant damage to the first dog--the fire bolt engulfs what little of remains of its fur and scorches its disease-ridden skin.
 GRUNDIG: 6 remain today
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan regards the shadowy figure only just visable on the rooftop of the guardtower. "Order your dogs to stand down! We seek safe passage to visit your master."
Johan quick draws his longbow and let's off a volley of arrows at the closest beast (manyshot & deadly aim)

To Hit (longbow): 1d20+10-2DA = 16
Damage (longbow): 1d8+4+4DA = 12
To Hit (longbow): 1d20+10-2DA = 17

Damage (longbow): 3d8+12+4DA = 35
 DUNGEON MASTER: Johan's arrows down both of the animals--they collapse under a hail of deadly arrows.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan commands Shadow to move behind Mesodias and stay.
 DUNGEON MASTER: "WHAT IS THIS?" bellows the beast in a voice loud enough to wake the dead.  "WHY IS THE DOOR LOCKED??  YOU SHOULD NOT BE HERE!"

With that, the beast hurtles forward towards the gate, howling and brandishing his fists as if he means to tear it down with his bare hands.  He nearly succeeds--the blow of his fists causes the doors to tilt inward and splinter at the hinges.

Up above, the large figure releases a bolt from a heavy crossbow that flies wide of the party.  The hulking figure curses in trollish and ducks back down under the battlements.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Mesodias will approach the trollhounds, drawing his weapon as he does before bloodying the closet on even further into the ground.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: To Hit (+1 heavy mace): 1d20+11-2 = 27
Damage (+1 Heavy mace): 1d8+7 = 15
 DUNGEON MASTER: Mesodias sucessfully bloodies the nearest hound.
 DUNGEON MASTER: The thing's breath expires under Mesodias' attentions.
 SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar moves up to behind mesodius and throws one of the acid vials so that it will land where he saw the large figure standing.  He throws it so it lobs over the battlement and hopefully on the opponant Splash weapon Vial 1d20+6=24 damage 1d6= 3 (1 splash damage for those around the hit square)
 DUNGEON MASTER: Judging by the bellow from above, the acid made contact with its target.
 GRUNDIG: grundig takes a 5 foot step foward and unleashes another fire bolt

ranged touch attack 1d20+8=15

damage 1d6+3= 9

plus 1 hp of fire damage to the ugly ass dog
 GRUNDIG: (fire bolt at the troll on the tower
 DUNGEON MASTER: The bolt slams into the stone battlement and leaves a nasty hissing scorch mark.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan carefully aims for the figure standing atop of the guardtower, waiting until he has as clear a shot as possible from his vantage point before letting loose three arrows (manyshot & deadly aim)

To Hit (longbow): 1d20+10-2DA = 23
Damage (longbow): 1d8+4+4DA = 10
To Hit (longbow): 1d20+10-2DA = 21

To Hit (longbow): 1d20+5-2DA = 13
Damage (longbow): 1d8+4+4DA = 12
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Shadow remains there pacing in a circle as the combat rages before him.
 DUNGEON MASTER: All three arrows clatter uselessly against the stone battlements.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan will move five foot closer to the guardtower.
 DUNGEON MASTER: Meanwhile, the beast howls in rage.  "LET ME IN!" he cries, smashing his fists into the door with red-hot fury.  With every blow, the doors bend inward, creaking and splintering.  At last, the doors fly off their hinges, bursting inward to reveal two lean, green crouching figures, as well as several small cowering ones.

They leap forward to attack, dealing
 DUNGEON MASTER: They leap forward to attack, dealing some damage to the beast--who howls in renewed anger.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Mesodias takes a five foot step to the right, before crushing the last trollhound into the ground (power attack)
To Hit (+1 heavy mace): 1d20+11-2PA = 21
Damage (+1 heavy mace): 1d8+7+6PA = 18
 DUNGEON MASTER: Mesodias smashes the prone beast into the dirt.
 DUNGEON MASTER: However, it continues to draw breath, and its wounds are slowly closing up.
 SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar casts Grease infront of the beast with acid as a power element (The grease is acidic and deals 1 point of acid damage per round to any creature in the area or holding the greased object.)  DC 17 reflex save for Grease (pass means stays standing, fail means fall prone).
 DUNGEON MASTER: Both trolls keep their feet under them; however, smoke rises from beneath their feet, and they both howl and hop in apparent agony.
 SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar yells out to his companions asking if any one wants to be enlarged or if he should save the spell
 GRUNDIG: grundig moves foward changing into a fire element as he runs
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan replies to Solar, "Sure I'd love that spell before I close int melee." Johan rushes forward, never taking his eye from the creatures within the guard tower. He moves directly in front of the smashed enterance, offerring a clear line of sight for a single shot (deadly aim)

To Hit (longbow): 1d20+10-2DA = 20
Damage (longbow): 1d8+4+4DA = 11
 DUNGEON MASTER: Johan's arrow strikes true, straight into the ugly troll's chest.
 DUNGEON MASTER: The beast's rage at seeing the two trolls hidden within the gatehouse is truly monstrous.  "YOU.... YOU SHOULD NOT *BE* HERE!" it howls, reaching forward to grasp the nearest troll around the chest.  With one swipe, it takes the nearest troll into a hug and drags it backwards to the precipice.

"COME DOWN HERE WITH ME!" the beast cries, pulling--rather than pushing--the troll off the edge with it.  The troll's cry of terror is subsumed both in the beast's bellow and the sound of the water below, as both creatures tumble over the ledge.

Up above, the troll on the tower takes the opportunity to lose another unsucessful arrow at Johan, while the first troll succeeds in stepping forward and biting at Mesodias, slashing the cleric across the chest for 10 points of damage.

Behind the first troll, a second pair of doors opens to reveal yet another green-skinned giant, howling and eager for bloodshed.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Mesodias roars as he moves to the side to smash the troll creature before him. His heavy mace ignites with a grey flame that flickers and is gone the instant it strikes the troll creature (five foot step, destructive smite & power attack)
To Hit (+1 heavy mace): 1d20+11-2PA = 22
Damage (+1 heavy mace): 1d8+7+6PA+3DS = 19
 DUNGEON MASTER: Mesodias' blow shatters several bones, causing the beast to yowl in rage and agony.
 SOLAR CE’NEA: Solar cast enlarge person on Johan (+2 size bonus to Strength, a -2 size penalty to Dexterity (to a minimum of 1), and a -1 penalty on attack rolls and AC due to its increased size.) 1d8 long sword does 2d6 Solar thne takes a 5 foot step back
 DUNGEON MASTER: [Enlarge person takes effect next round.]
 GRUNDIG: grundig moves the rest of the way ontop of the downed dog and casts burning hands apon the troll as to not hit mesodias

dam 5d4=13 reflex halves dc=15
 DUNGEON MASTER: The troll makes an attempt to bite at the little gnome casting a spell so close to it--luckily, the thing's teeth chomp down a hairwidth away, causing grundig no ill effects other than the smell of its nasty breath.

The dog expires under the sheet of flame.  The troll, apparently surprised by the nature of the attack, takes full damage from the attack.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan let's off a final volley of arrows at the troll standing within the enterance of the guard tower before the effects of Solar's spell takes affect. He then moves five feet closer to his prey (manyshot & deadly aim, five foot step)

To Hit (longbow): 1d20+10-2DA = 12
Damage (longbow): 1d8+4+4DA = 10

To Hit (longbow): 1d20+10-2DA = 17

To Hit (longbow): 1d20+5-2DA = 18
Damage (longbow): 1d8+4+4DA = 15
 DUNGEON MASTER: The final two arrows slam into the creatures chest, causing it to gasp for breath and flail about pathetically.
 DUNGEON MASTER: The thing launches a ferocious series of attacks on Mesodias, dealing 27 points of damage with both claws and ending with a terriric bone-crunching bite.
 DUNGEON MASTER: The creature, sucessfully striking with both claws, latches onto Mesodias chest and crushes bone and organs, inflicting another 12 points of damage.

Additionally, the troll in the gatehouse decides to hurl a boulder at the priest, which thankfully is deflected off the remanants of the great gate and misses.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Mesodias smashes into the side of the stone wall as he coughs a mouthful of blood. He knows from experience at least one of his ribs has punchered his lung which is slowly filling with blood. He staggers as he clears his vision long enough to swing his heavy mace at the beast, praying to Gorum to give him the strength to drop it (power attack, destructive smite)
To Hit (+1 heavy mace): 1d20+11-2PA = 24
Damage (+1 heavy mace): 1d8+7+6PA+3DS = 18

 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan drops his longbow, discarding it as he draws his longsword in a fluid motion as he rushes forward and to the side of the inside of the guard tower so as not to block line of sight from his companions (quick draw, power attack)
To Hit (+1 keen longsword): 1d20+12-2PA = 23
Confirm Critical: 1d20+12-2PA+1 = 23

Damage: 1 hp
 DUNGEON MASTER: Johan lands a terrible strike on the troll, who loses no time in attacking with both claw and teeth.  Both claws fail to penetrate his armor, but the teeth sink deeply into Johan's shoulder for 9 points of damage.
 DUNGEON MASTER: Up above, the troll reappears overhead, this time without the crossbow in hand.  Instead, it takes a great leap off the tower, landing upright on both feet, although judging by the sound of bones snapping it takes some damage in the fall.  Despite this damage, it launches into a nasty attack on Solar, which only barely misses.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Mesodias retreats five foot back as he prays to Gorum to quickly heal the worse of his injuries and let he resume the combat.

damage  1d8+3=9
 DUNGEON MASTER: Grundig sucessfully manuevers himself between the beast and Solar, and then launches a stinging bolt of fire directly in its face.  It howls with rage and directs its attention onto the menacing fire elemental instead of Solar.
 JOHAN D’ALMENTA/MESODIAS: Johan ducks underneath one of the beasts claw attacks and thrusts his longsword into its chest, before slashing with a swift second attack (power attack)

Outside, the giant troll delivers seval attacks on the ferocious little fire elemental before it, of which only the claw suceeds.delivering 11 points of damage to Grundig.
 DUNGEON MASTER: Grundig's fire form scorches the giant troll for its trouble.

Damage (+1 heavy mace): 1d8+7+6PA+3DS = 19
 DUNGEON MASTER: Mesodias' attack fails to penetrate the hulking toll's thick skin.  Furthermore, the troll manages to return an attack as the large, bloodied priest closes.  The nasty jaws clamp down on his flank, causing 14 points of damage.

 DUNGEON MASTER: Johan cuts his troll to bits.

For his part, Shadow Splatterface attacks the troll with an impressive bite that severs the beast's left tendon and brings the thing crashing down at Mesodias' feet.

The great beast heaves itself to its feet, [drawing an attack from everyone around him].
To Hit (+1 heavy mace): 1d20+11-2PA+2FL = 20
