The crawler darts out of the room, or at least tries to. As soon as it reaches the door, a blinding spray of colors assault its senses. It begins to feel dizzy, but the anger it feels towards the invaders is too strong to let it give in. It takes a very short moment, but then notices there are a few more creatures in his home than he had expected...

OOCSo, Trynne and Ban can complete your actions before it attacks. However, Sensinn is in the cone of the color spray... He'll need to pass a will test before he can act.

Trynne
left-aligned image
The wild scowls, sharp teeth turned upwards. Trynne glares at the aberration, through hated-filled eyes, and growls with foreboding.

"(Grrrrrrr)…."

Running up to the corner of the doorway, the canine Trynne attempts to sink his weaponous teeth into the monstrosity!

Ban

Seeing the creature come into view, Ban quickly grabs his holy symbol in one hand placing his other on Sensinn's back, whilst rapidly praying under his breath, beseeching Desna for to grant protection to his ally.

Sensinn OroThe spray from the wizard's hands spread out farther than Sensinn had expected, striking him as well as the creature. The paladin braced himself for some kind of pain or numbness... Which never seemed to come. Instead, an array of colors washed over him for a moment before fading away. At first, Sensinn thought that he would instead feel weak rather than be harmed, until the only noticeable effect of the spell was to cause him to make a short sneeze.

"Er, Keloryn... Do you perhaps you need to lie down? Recharge? Are you well...?"

The sneeze was only mildly disorientating, but it and his surprise at not being affected were enough to distract him from the door. The creature seemed to move far faster than he had anticipated, and his swing this went wide, missing the creature with his strike.

Cursing his failure, Sensinn felt Ban's hand on his back. He could feel the cleric bolstering his defenses.

"Hrm. Much obliged, Brother Innot."

You watch in horror as the creature's body rises up, almost reaching the ceiling. Its tentacles splay out wildly in all directions, barely catching Harsk and Sensinn. The two of you feel something strange as the sticky surface leaves your skin and must attempt to fight off the coming paralysis. He finally lands, snapping a bite at the paladin that deflects off of the diving aura surrounding him.


OOC4 Damage to Sensinn and 5 to Harsk has been entered on the website, and everyone can act for the next round. I know Trynne moved, but I was too lazy to take another screenshot for that... The paralysis is a DC13 FORT save.

Harsk & Trynne
left-aligned image
Staving off the malevolent stickiness, Harsk glares at the aberration with hazel-eyed vindictiveness.

“May yer teeth be e’er sharp, Trynne,” says the druidic dwarf, his calloused right hand reaching forth to touch the hide of his wolf.
right-aligned image
Imbued by her druid’s divine power, Trynne takes another gnawing attempt at the slimy presence. However, once more, her slashing attack fails to find purchase!

"(Grrrrrrr)…."

Keloryn Roloval
left-aligned image

Frustrated at the impotence of his magic over the last two days, Keloryn steps forward and shouts, "Φιλκι λορεατ!"Draconic: Just die!* as he flings another colorful blast at the crawler. As the spell dissipates, the wizard stands with his arm still outstretched, sweat trickling down his brow, waiting to see if the magic will take effect this time.

The slimy, hulking mass wriggles its tentacles in further attempt to convince the intruders to leave its home. It notices the powder and light emanating from one of them again, paying it little attention after the ineffectiveness of the first attempt. This time, the spray hits it full on and forces it to turn away. It's too late, however, as the colors penetrate its mind until they are all it can think about.

You see the crawler sink to the ground, muscles suddenly lax. If not for the sound of breathing, you might think it were dead.

OOCYou have 5 rounds to hack it up. Have fun.

Keloryn Roloval
left-aligned image

Keloryn slowly lowers his hand, breathing heavily. He turns his head toward Sensinn saying, "I'm fine. Maybe next time you won't jump in front of my spells." Whether due to frustration or exhaustion, his reply holds no apparent teasing or mirth. He nods his head toward the immobile creature, "Have fun with that."

The wizard walks over to the nearby corner and slumps down on the floor. He takes a swig from his canteen before pulling out his journal and starts working on an entry for the slime crawler.

Harsk & Trynne
left-aligned image
As the druidic dwarf waddles forth, the canine Trynne attempts to bite ravenously at the fallen crawler. But the adrenaline of assailing a helpless monster…surely leads to general ineptitude for our normally-fierce canine!

right-aligned image
“Blast,Tr-r-rynne! Take a bite outa it, now will ye?!”

Visibly shaken at Trynne's inability to bring her canine fury to bear upon the crawler, Harsk strikes. He brings his shillelagh down with dwarven rage, putting a sound gash into the side of the fallen monster!

Sensinn OroRecovering after his last failed swing, Sensinn's irritation is plain for all around to see. The pauldrons on his armor hung low with his shoulders, his annoyance not being helped by the elf's jab. As much as he would have loved to impart knowledge in the finer points of the ancient technique known as "aiming slightly to the left", at this point Sensinn was much more interested in getting the whole thing done with. Raising his greatsword over the already-injured creature, the paladin, in an uncharacteristic moment of anger, muttered under his breath to the slumbering creature -

"Thou shalt not be missed."

- before bringing his sword down. The blade cut into the creature's middle, cleaving it in twain with such force that upon the blade striking the floor under the creature, cracks spiderwebbed out from the point of impact. Finally breathing a sigh in relief, Sensinn stood up straight again, retrieved a small cloth from one of the pouches on his hip, and began using it to wipe the creature's innards off of his blade.

After stowing away the cloth, Sensinn reaches into another pocket to retrieve a roll of bandages. He begins wrapping them around the puncture in his midsection. The wound wasn't particularly life-threatening, he would just rather not have to leave the hole open to the air.

"So... Moving on then?"

The creature slumps, oozing various fluids. It mostly blocks the door into the kitchen, but you could try to climb over or push him out of the way. The door on the other side of the hallway remains closed, and the throne room at the end of the hall remains unexplored. As you take a moment to clean the remains of the beast from your weapons, and splattered bits from your armor, you hear a faint whisper. It doesn't seem to be coming from any particular direction, almost as if it is only in your head. Maybe you imagined it?

Keloryn Roloval
left-aligned image

Hearing the sickening sound of Sensinn's blade, Keloryn looked up from his sketch with a slight look of disappointment. He stared at Sensinn for a few moments before giving him a nod, and stowed away his journal as he rose to his feet.

"Well, that was interesting." the wizard said. "Shall we try the other door? I think it best if we avoid leaving anything like that between ourselves and the exit."

Harsk & Trynne
left-aligned image
“Shhh,” Harsk warns, putting a thick finger to dwarven lips. “Did anyone else hear that? It sounded like a faint whisper.”

Striding up to the fallen monster, dwarf and wolf prepare to move the creature’s lifeless body. But only whilst straining their ears to better hear…that which they both know they heard!

“Humph,” Harsk utters.

HauntingKeloryn opens the door on the opposite side of the hallway. Within, you find a mostly ruined chapel. A few benches are filed on either side of the room and you see the remains of a podium near the far wall.

Harsk focuses on the whispering and is startled to receive some form of communication. The words come to you almost more as images or concepts, but they are clear. "Maid", "Whore", "Witch". Your attention is then immediately drawn to a stone in the kitchen wall, as if a bright light were momentarily shining on it. And movement? The air seems to shimmer past it.

With some help, you push the sludge crawler aside. Trynne immediately goes to a recessed opening in the corner, sniffing at some items that the now deceased inhabitant was hoarding, happily retrieves a bone (a human arm?), likely from an unfortunate previous explorer, and plops in the corner to gnaw on it. Inspecting the remains reveals a mithral chain shirt and silver short sword among the pile of bones.

You then remove the stone, wondering how any of the wall is still standing, and find a diary. Upon the first page is written the name of Eleanor. Taking a minute to skim the contents, it seems that she was a scullery maid. She had drawn the attention of the Lord Pemberton of her time. The happy entries describe weeks of hiding and sneaking around to spend time with him. The writings become shorter, darker as she fears that she is with child. The last entry is desperate with fear of what might happen if anyone were to discover their indiscretions.

As if responding to the emotions on the page, pots and pans fly and clatter about the room. You are struck once or twice, but not enough to cause injury. Trynne abandons the bone and darts back to the hallway.
