SESSION 53j: DAY 23 – THE CAVES OF CHAOS
It is probably too late to move the bodies without notice thinks Talmark. "Best set up an ambush. Kord, Lucien, has Asmodius granted either of you spells for holding a creature in place?" He downs one of his Curative potions healing back 3pts of damage before stepping to the side of the tunnel mouth, sword at the ready.
“Unfortunately not,” responds Kord. “I can only scare her, which may just make her run away and raise the alarm.”
Lucien whispers, "Talmark, I am out of healing scrolls for this venture. You'll have to imbibe potions from here on," as he pulls out his concoctions in preparation to mix and make an alchemical bomb to toss if she gets within range (20ft).
Malandir waits to use his opportunity to fire unimpeded at this new foe before she is aware he is there. If the arrow does not drop her, one hit from his companions will finish the task.
"Just thought of a quick plan!” exclaims Talmark. “Kord, walk across the room casually so she sees you. Walk until you are out of view without acknowledging her presence. Hopefully she will come running and ignore the bodies on the ground and we can thwack her quickly!"
Kord nods, "That sounds like a great plan."
Per likes this plan and readies his glaive whilst staying out of sight.
The party gets into position and waits. As the female advances, Kord casually walks across the room from the east to the west. He whistles in a nonchalant manner. The female stops dead in her tracks, surprised at the site of the human walking freely in her lair. As he starts to disappear from view she shouts for him to halt and then she starts to run after him.
She is set upon immediately as she enters the room.
The female is flanked and flat footed and thus the party will effectively get +3 to hit (+2 for flanking and -1 to her AC for being flat footed).
· Talmark swings Felldrac at her with all his strength and with a decisive spinning slash, he sends his foe reeling into the afterlife as he delivers 14pts of damage. (15/23)
· Somewhat disappointingly, the rest of the party realise that the fight is over, before they’ve had a chance to even participate.
