Cadogan
right-aligned image
”Mushrooms?” The big man sniffed at the air, which smelled to him of cave. Damp, moldy, dirty cave, but not so much different than the rest of it he'd seen. He kicked another small rock into the darkness, ”Perhaps captive meals for the spiders? Or maybe it just leads back to where we came from? This seems to be your area of expertise boy, I’ll follow your decision.” Cadogan looks over at Jubai, offering a nod of encouragement as the torch’s light dances across the blade resting on his shoulder.

Jubai, the RangerJubai stood from his crouched position at Cadogan's words. Gods, my "area of expertise." He swallowed, and glanced fretfully at the two choices.

"Last warrens, we were greeted with words, and the blessing of the myconid king. I say we travel the path to the left. The other, if it were to yield spiders, would bring battle."

He tried to be stoic, and to keep his voice stern. He was channeling his adopted father, Delwin, he realized, and the tone he'd used to calm nervous travelers when he would guide them.

The Spider Nest
right-aligned image
With Jubai's decision, the group took the left path toward what they thought would be more mushrooms. The air in this section of cave was indeed stagnant and stale. So sluggish, in fact, that the walls seemed to be closing in on oneself. A feeling of claustrophobia none would welcome. Though it was not claustrophobia to be worried about but arachnophobia. Sitting in the center of the large chamber that seemed to taper off into darkness behind, sat the most horrific creature any had seen. It's body was covered in a chitin of sorts as it crouched on its haunches, four spindly legs splayed out underneath thick armored torso out of which sprang four more limbs. In two of these, the creature fiddled with a pair of red gemstones. As the torchlight illuminated it fully, it let out a terrible shriek and from the darkness of the ceiling came two more giant spiders, murderous intent clearly gleaming in their multitude eyes.

oocEveryone may roll initiative. 16 and over may go first.

JubaiJubai froze, and stood straight as he discovered the room's occupants. Uncharacteristically, he sputtered curses and swears like a sailor, cursing his luck and his choice which had led his compatriots into another fight. Gryff, his Great Horned owl ruffled himself, embarrassed with the half-elf's lack of control.

Almost snarling, Jubai rose his head and drew his bow in a flash. The ranger had an arrow nocked in a heartbeat and loosed it at one of the landing spiders.

Cadogan
right-aligned image
”By Evelyn…” Cadogan blurted out as he finally spotted the monstrous creature ahead of them. He might have waited to see how the creature reacted to them, but then came the spiders to nearly land on them. Tossing aside his torch, he took a swing at the nearest spider which Greatsword attack, 11 to hit, misspassed over its body as he mistimed his swing.

The Spider Nest
right-aligned image
The strange creature in the center of the cavern had distracted everyone enough that they did not spot the spiders descending upon them from the ceiling. Luckily, Cadogan and Jubai were quick and both were able to make attacks prior to the spiders getting their legs under them or their fangs into position. Unluckily, both missed their strikes. The creature whom the group would later learn was an ettercap, shot a stream of webbing at Cadogan, encasing the warrior in sticky silk strands. Seeing Cadogan's precarious situation, Durndim cast a simple spell at the spider in front of the fighter hoping to remove any advantage it would have against him. While the dwarf's spell worked, the spider was still able to sink its fangs into Cadogan's arm. Wukle had his hands full as well as the spider in front of him drove a fang into the gnome's shoulder preventing him from making a descent enough counter attack to do any damage.

Alaura'lyn

Alaura'lyn breathed deeply and steadied herself for another fight. Seeing an opportunity to turn the fight to their favor, the eladrin cast her most reliable spell.

Erif eireaf!

Blue energy crept up from the ground, surrounding their foes in an attempt to illuminate them.

OOCCasting Faerie Fire with my last spell slot. Centered on CA-38, 20 ft cube so it should hit each of the enemies only. DC 13 Dexterity saves for each enemy.

JubaiJubai sought the internal void he needed desperately and when he found it, felt its completeness ease his hand on the bowstring. Then, as if in fast-forward, he was whistling shrilly to Gryff to attack the spider biting their newly-found guide.

As the ranger fired his arrow at the spider, Gryff was already winging high and bombing down at the creature, talons out.

Cadogan
right-aligned image
Cadogan struggled, but could not break free of the webbing that held him fast. Making matters worse, the spider seemed to think the man would make a fine meal and bit him hard. He grunted in pain as the spider’s fangs dug into him, watching the subterranean horror as it watched him right back. Cadogan didn’t like asking for help, but he liked the idea of being eaten even less.

”Dammit, someone cut me loose!”


OOCStrength Check against webs: 7

The Spider Nest
right-aligned image
Jubai and Gryph unleashed a torrent of pain upon the spider attacking Wukle, their aggression ending the life of the foul beast. Alaura'lyn attempted to illuminate their enemies in glowing outlines to aid in the striking but her spell fizzled to no effect. The magical weave under the mountain had been confounding the elf since going underground. Seeing Cadogan encased in webbing, Durndim drew his axe and attempted to sever the strands without slicing into the fighter. His blade skipped harmlessly off the webbing leaving the warrior restrained still as the spider sunk its fangs deep into his chest. The ettercap, seeing an opportunity to reduce its enemies by one, bounded around the spider's flank to sidle up beside Cadogan where it rended him with claw and buried its mandibles into his chest opposite where the spider had attacked. The ferocity of the attacks was more than Cadogan could take and the fighter slumped to the ground, covered in his own blood and still bound in silk. Wukle's eyes widened in fear of a return to his arachnid fate and charged the spider, burying his mining pick deep into its carapace. The creature convulsed and let out a blood curdling shriek as the pick was yanked out spending yellow goo spraying onto the gnome.

Muttering to himself about humans who need more healing than patients in a sick ward, Durndim draws upon his healing magics to pull Cadogan back to consciousness but still wrapped in his silken prison.

oocEven with making the poison save, Cadogan would go to 0 hp. Durndim used healing word to bring him back to 4 hp.

Cursing her enemies for reacting so quickly to her previous spell, Alaura'lyn quickly cast a blast of eldritch energy as the spiders were distracted.

Tsalb hctirdle!

Thankfully her attack hit the spider that was still standing after her allies fell the other.

Cadogan
right-aligned image
It was a strange thing, Cadogan realized, to feel the life draining out of you and then to pour right back in. Opening his eyes he found himself face-to-face with the same monstrous horrors that had already slashed and bit him. He struggled against the webs, Action: Strength Check, 9, failunsurprised when he couldn’t break free given his status as recently deceased, because that was something he was certain of. That thing had killed him, and something had brought him back for more. Gathering his thoughts, he focused once more on tearing free of the webs, but still the sticky mass Action Surge: Strength Check, 10, failheld firm against his efforts.


OOCStrength checks against webs: 9 and 10

JubaiJubai moving toward BY for a clean shot on spider 2moved quickly, hardly watching Gryff finish off the first spider. The ranger's breath caught in his throat as he watched Cadogan straining, using all his might against the web as the creatures tore at this flesh. Steeling himself, Jubai drew and loosed an arrow at the second spider, hoping to drop another foe.

Showing their almost uncanny physical communication, Gryff was in flight before the arrow was released. As it struck, brutally, Gryff scored the creature's eyes with his sharp talons, rendering the spider useless.


OOC8 dmg to spider 2 from Jubai, 8 dmg to spider 2 from Gryff

The Spider Nest
right-aligned image
Between the efforts of Alaura'lyn, Jubai and the owl Gryph, the last spider was sent to the ground writhing in death leaving only the hideous ettercap surrounded by the prone Cadogan, the gnome Wukle and the dwarf Durndim. Cadogan was still as yet unable to break out of his sticky prison and Durndim decided against trying to slash at the webbing again instead swinging his axe at the ettercap. His blade slide off his carapace without leaving but more than a faint line to show it had ever been there. The gnome, Wukle, had better luck as he dug his mining pick into the creature's side. It reacted with a fervor that surprised both Wukle and Durndim. It lashed a claw out toward Wukle, catching him square in the chest, drawing blood and sending the gnome to the ground. It latched it mandibles above Durndim's collarbone, chewing flesh and injecting toxic poison into the dwarf.

With a yelp, the dwarf hollered, "Cadogan! Get yer lazy arse off the ground and kill this thing already! I didn't save you from Brekka to be turned to juice and eaten by spiders!"

Alaura'lyn
left-aligned image
Both spiders had fallen, but Cadogan still looked to be in trouble. Alaura'lyn felt protective of the human now. He was not unlike a child to her, and he wasn't even able to see underground, so he must be feeling terribly out of his element. All she could do at this moment was to attack the creature behind him and hope that was enough.

Tsalb hctirdle!

The attack hit, but seemed to only slightly phase the creature. "I need stronger magics" she thought to herself.

OOCEldritch Blast, 20 to hit and 4 damage on Ettercap
