Battle Thread 8: The Mirror Demon
« on: October 22, 2007, 06:14:38 PM »

Surprise Round

The mirror demon emerges from the mirror.

Round 1

Initiative order is as follows (it's also on the map):

Sarian 22

Dekion 14

Mirror Demon 14

Rhana 6

Ellion 5

Dekion goes before the demon because his +4 initiative bonus is all from dex whilst it's +4 is all from the improved initiative feat. Dekion & Sarian are standing by the cupboard (Dekion thinking about the rope they left behind & Sarian deciding which way t go). Rhana is standing by the door and Ellion is at the end of the mirrored hallway. The "hollow" white walls represent the mirrors.

Sarian will hear the wailing ands the moaning and look aprehensive. Dekion's up next. He knows there's something round the corner and it doesn't sound nice (but he doesn't neccessarily know exactly how far round the corner it is).

"Eliion, Rhana get back!" Dekion takes out his crossbow and readies it in case something comes around the corner.

Once it's her turn Ellion will frantically try to get as far away from the demon as possible since she's very wounded. Probably to late since the demon goes first... :(

Remember there are luck rolls and also reflex saves (for half damage or none I hope). Run back and lead it to Dekion so he can kick its ass! Rhana can nuke it with her wand from the other side of the room.

I'll wait to see what the Mirror Demon does before I decide what Rhana does.

The mirror demon charges and attacks Ellion with one of it's claws (attack roll 25, 9 damage). This triggers it's improved grab ability. It's grapple check is a 23 and Ellion's is a 12. It's got a firm grip on her.

Rhana and Ellion are next.

OOC: Being that Sarian goes after the demon and then Dekion, Don't we have to wait until Sarian posts and then what Dekion is doing? Also being that Dekion sees it grab Ellion (before it is his turn) he will rush up and attacks the demon (with his scimitar, +3 pooints) trying to force it to let her go.

Yeah but the player's absent and gave me leave to run his character so they can post now. It'll all make sense in the story thread when I do the round summary :).

So Ellion changes her action to "Try to break free" if she's even conscious...

Rhana will use the wand to cast a magic missle at the mirror demon.

She is (although I'd forgotten how badly wounded she was).

Well it hasn't technicaly rounded the corner yet but I'll let you shoot if you like. You'd get a -4 penalty for firing into combat and then the demon is standing round the corner so it would get a cover bonus to ac as well.

Rhana's wand does 9 damage (4 + 5) and Ellion tries to break free. She gets a 13 against the mirror demon's 15. It's close but the creature still has a grip on her.

Did you see the post I just quoted? I changed Dekions actions based on Ellion getting grabbed when it was the demons turn.

Actualy the demon went after Dekion. You both roleld the same initiative score and both had the same modifier but your dex was higher so you went first. You specified a delayed action (to shoot). I'm happy to change that 'though if you want (delayed charge?) as it might save her life.
