5:37PM Apheori (GM): Okay. I just cleared the chat. Apheori (GM) whistls. 5:38PM Apheori (GM): And the Merr stepped out to get bread. And I should plug this thing in. BUT ANYWAY. 5:38PM Ganelon: But anyway. 5:39PM Apheori (GM): Where even were we? 5:39PM Gaurav: Rhu was making nice with his god. Yes, the large-breasted one. 5:40PM Apheori (GM): Also bear in mind that I got like three hours of sleep last night, so this may not even be coherent. It was a weird trip full of unexpected customs and stuff. Okay, so Rhu and Hazz are all happy... 5:41PM Frezak (GM): Rhu is always happy. Nothing but nice things happen to him. 5:42PM Apheori (GM): Oh, everyone was assaulting Gravy. Apparently. 5:42PM Gaurav: We were? 5:43PM Apheori (GM): Well, Amadi and someone were. But he's fine. It had moved onto Rhu now. ASSAULTING RHU. There are chocolate buttons right next to me. o_O 5:44PM Gaurav: Oh right. Amadi was gazing into his eyes and discovered that Rhu was a walking dead end. Rhu was standing frozen in place hoping she would try to lick his face or something. 5:45PM Ganelon: ...Hoping? 5:46PM Gaurav: wouldn't* Err. 5:46PM Apheori (GM): While this is going on, is anyone paying attention to Greibel? 5:47PM Ganelon: Radek is probably thanking his squid and hoping nobody else catches him doing it. 5:47PM Gaurav: Hee. 5:47PM Apheori (GM): Gravy notices. 5:47PM Frezak (GM): Gravy notices. Gravy sees all. HAH 5:48PM Apheori (GM): Yes. 5:48PM Ganelon: Well I haven't got a smokescreen to deploy or anything of the sort, unfortunately. 5:49PM Apheori (GM): It's okay. Gravy probably understands anyway. So is Gravy the only one paying attention to Greibel on account of his generally paying attention to everything? I NEED TO KNOW. 5:50PM Gaurav: Will a passive perception of 25 do it? 5:50PM Apheori (GM): Sure, whatever. 5:50PM Gaurav: Probably with a penalty for having an Amadi poking at his eye. 5:51PM Apheori (GM): Except you're getting godlinged. So you can't easily do much about it. 5:51PM Gaurav: Yup. Rhu will remain petrified in place &c. What's Hazz' doing at this point? That's probably who Rhu will be watching apart from Amadi. 5:54PM Amadi: Open your mouth and say "Aaaa." 5:55PM Frezak (GM): Gravy stands beatifically in the middle of chaos. He is a ROCK in this ocean of MADNESS And not a rock smeared in sirens, mind you. 5:56PM Ganelon: We could fix that. 5:57PM Rhu: Aaaa ... look, can you get off my face? Amadi peers into Rhu's ear. 5:58PM Amadi: No. Keep saying "Aaaaa." Move on to B in a bit. 5:58PM Apheori (GM): Gravy: You notice Greibel seems to be talking to someone. Except there's nobody there. 5:59PM Rhu: Aaaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbwwwwhaat you are doing? 5:59PM Apheori (GM): Rhu: You probably notice a bit of this too. 5:59PM (To Amadi): It's a Gravy-shaped porridge. Amadi pokes Rhu in the nose. 6:01PM Rhu: Huh. Look, I'm a qualified first aid person and I'm perfectly capable of taking care of myself, so if you don't mind ... rolling d20+3 athletics check to push Amadi off ( 13 ) +3 = 16 6:01PM Frezak (GM): I think Greibel talking to nothing we can see is pretty normal, though. 6:02PM Apheori (GM): Is Kyrule there? I totally forgot. 6:02PM Gaurav: I don't think she came back from Midnight with Amadi and Gravy. 6:02PM Ellemerr: What's that against? 6:02PM Apheori (GM): Frezak, Gan. Halp. 6:03PM Ganelon: It's not a normal rules situation. But I'd say fortitude. 6:03PM Frezak (GM): I think Kyrule stayed back in Concept Land 6:04PM Ellemerr: It hits fortitude. Amadi falls over. Rhu is surprised at his own strength. 6:05PM Rhu: Oh, oops, sorry ... here, let me help you up ... 6:05PM Ganelon: Remember that Amadi is light as a feather. 6:05PM Gaurav: Oh, right. I keep forgetting. 6:06PM Ganelon: Radek's an old man and he could probably juggle several copies of her. 6:06PM Gaurav: The canteen I'm in has inexplicably filled up with children and it's very weird. 6:06PM Apheori (GM): Would you like several copies? 6:06PM Ganelon: No. Squirrel peers curiously over Radek's shoulder. 6:06PM Ganelon: One is quite enough trouble. 6:06PM Apheori (GM): Uh, too bad. 6:06PM Gaurav: btw, logs confirm that Kyrule didn't return. It's apparently why Hazz' is sticking around. Amadi is helped up. She continues to crawl onto Rhu's shoulder, inspecting his hair. Rhu gives up and lets Amadi do what she likes, batting at her when she starts fiddling with his face. 6:09PM Apheori (GM): Right. Radek is holding his tablet. Complex diagrams fill the screen. He slowly turns his head in Squirrel's direction, narrowing his eyes menacingly. 6:09PM Apheori (GM): She just sat down for some reason. Amadi starts braiding the hair. 6:09PM Apheori (GM): I wish I knew what was going through that lady's head. She's a real finn sometimes. 6:10PM Radek: ... ''Yes?'' 6:11PM Frezak (GM): Gravy peers over Squirrel's should. *shoulder thing 6:12PM Squirrel: You should tilt it. rolling 1d20 + 10 arcana to make sense ( 4 ) +10 = 14 6:12PM Apheori (GM): It's nonsense. 6:13PM Ganelon: Obviously, these diagrams plot the chemical balance of Cinnamon Toast Crunch in an attempt to understand its addictive effects upon children below the age of 13. He's getting close to figuring it out. 6:14PM Frezak (GM): Dammit, Radek. I thought you were a scienceman 6:14PM Ganelon: I'm joking, man, it's actually more Hole stuff. 6:15PM Frezak (GM): JOKES? I don't know you any more. Radek swats at Squirrel with his free hand. 6:16PM Radek: Begone. Your advice would be unnecessary even if it ''wasn't'' utter nonsense. 6:17PM The Gravedigger: She could be saying something metaphorical that's actually very wise and smart, just beyond our natural scope of language. The Gravedigger squints. 6:18PM The Gravedigger: Wait, no, that's the red one. Forget it. 6:18PM Squirrel: The squirrels live in the tree and only walk from place to place as needed. They fall out sometimes. 6:18PM Radek: Mm. Radek nods. 6:18PM Ganelon: That was directed at Gravy. Amadi and Dawn are occasionally insightful, it's true. 6:19PM Radek: Are you well, Gravedigger? I understand that you died for a moment, there. Radek keeps his attention on the tablet. 6:20PM The Gravedigger: Transcending the bounds of mortality is a piddling feat when one has bisected reality itself. Oooh, lunchtime. 6:21PM Radek: You should try to avoid doing that. Leads to situations like this one. 6:21PM The Gravedigger: Sandwich lady! Lunch! 6:21PM Apheori (GM): Meanwhile Greibel seems to be getting into a relatively heated argument with the... whatever he's talking to. It involves a sentence with more than one clause in it. I mean, he uses one. 6:22PM Frezak (GM): What, he's discussing legal contracts? 6:22PM Apheori (GM): No, I mean he phrases a sentence different... nevermind. Rhu will walk up to Greibel and listen in. 6:22PM Apheori (GM): HE ALMOST SOUNDS SERIOUS. But only almost. Or something. Nevermind. Greibel holds out a pile of drugs. 6:24PM Gaurav: To Rhu? Or to the nothing he's talking to? 6:25PM Ganelon: Either way you oughta be like "For MEEEEE?" 6:25PM Apheori (GM): To the nothing. It might be vaguely in your direction, though. 6:26PM Rhu: Um, thanks? Rhu pockets the drugs. 6:28PM Rhu: (to Hazz/Midoriki) Should we keep going, then? 6:29PM Apheori (GM): When you take the drugs, the shadows surrounding your bubble of leap out at you and attack. Everyone do an intitiative. There's only going to be one round here; whatever you do will either count or not, or REALLY not, which could be hilarious. Rhu quickly tries to hand the drugs back. 6:30PM Rhu: rolling d20+6 initiative ( 11 ) +6 = 17 6:30PM Amadi: rolling 1d20 + 3 ( 19 ) +3 = 22 6:30PM Apheori (GM): rolling 1d20 + 3 squirrel ( 7 ) +3 = 10 6:31PM Frezak (GM): rolling 1D20+3 ( 1 ) +3 = 4 Wheeeee 6:31PM Ganelon: rolling 1d20+3 ( 16 ) +3 = 19 6:31PM Frezak (GM): I'm thinkin' about lunch, darnit. 6:31PM Apheori (GM): Lunch? O_o You have all those sausages! 6:32PM Frezak (GM): Dying makes for a fearsome hunger! 6:33PM Gaurav: How many shadows tried to jump us? Or is it just a large vague approaching mass of shadow? 6:33PM Apheori (GM): Do surprise rounds work the same way here as they do in pathfinder? 6:33PM Frezak (GM): It's one action. 6:34PM Apheori (GM): Okay. I totally just nearly zonked out. rolling 1d20 + 9 vs rhu fort ( 6 ) +9 = 15 6:37PM Gaurav: My fort is 15, so that's a ... miss? 6:38PM Frezak (GM): A tie hits. 6:38PM Gaurav: ... hit. 6:39PM Apheori (GM): Rhu got attacked by a shadow and his shadows fade. This does some stuff and things. I'm going to get some soup and rephrase that. 6:40PM Gaurav: With everything that's happened to him, it's a wonder he has any shadows left. 6:42PM Apheori (GM): What I should have said is there is a horrible tearing at his soul and Rhu is, uh, slowed or something. For a few rounds. 6:42PM Gaurav: Any damage? 6:43PM Apheori (GM): Oh, right. Attacks usually do damage. Uh. rolling 1d4 + 2 ( 3 ) +2 = 5 THERE. DAMAGE. That was pitiful. 6:44PM Gaurav: Weak shadows. 6:45PM Apheori (GM): ACTUAL ROUND BEGINS NOW. Order: Amadi, Hazz, Radek, Shadows, Rhu, Squirrel, Gravy. You are... surrounded by 8 shadows. 6:46PM Gaurav: Yes, good, let the gods go first. 6:46PM Apheori (GM): All coming in from the border of the light. The nearest two are by Rhu/Greibel. I'll, uh, put them on the map. 6:51PM Gaurav: What is the porridge's initiative? 6:51PM Apheori (GM): We don't know. 6:53PM Frezak (GM): The speed of oats. Amadi takes a bowl of soup out of her pocket and throws it at a random shadow. 6:53PM Amadi: rolling 1d20 + 6 ( 6 ) +6 = 12 Amadi misses wildly. 6:54PM The Gravedigger: (In slowmo) Mmmmyyyyy luuuuuunch 6:55PM Gaurav: Ha! 6:56PM Apheori (GM): Amadi 's soup hits Hazz in the bakc of the head. Amadi snickers. 6:57PM Apheori (GM): Hazz very deliberately reaches up and wipes the soup off . Then he grabs the shadow next to him nad hurls it at Amadi's face. What happens next is, uh, entirely up to you. Amadi attempts to catch and eat the shadow. 6:59PM Amadi: rolling 1d20 + 10 ( 7 ) +10 = 17 6:59PM Apheori (GM): Amadi catches the shadow and winds up shredding it in an attempt to eat it. 6:59PM Ellemerr: Aaaw 6:59PM Apheori (GM): Radek: You're up. 7:00PM Ganelon: One sec. ...Quite a lot of these things, huh? 7:08PM Apheori (GM): They seem to be fairly weak. OR something. It's all relative. 7:09PM Ganelon: I'll just do a regular rifle shot on... this'n. (Rifle Weapon Attack Rolling 1d20+3+5+2+1+1 = ( 5 )+3+5+2+1+1 = 17) 7:09PM Apheori (GM): Miiiisses. Wait, no, that hits. Sorry, I can't think. 7:10PM Ganelon: rolling 1d10+7 ( 5 ) +7 = 12 And if it's still alive, next person to attack it gets a +2. To hit. 7:11PM Apheori (GM): It splits into two shadows. 7:11PM Gaurav: Um. 7:12PM Frezak (GM): Goody! 7:13PM Apheori (GM): They're each like half size. Anything else? 7:13PM Ganelon: Nah. 7:14PM Apheori (GM): Shadows, then. The two split shadows try to recoalesce and explode with a loud pop. Amadi starts fizzing. 7:15PM Gaurav: Eeks! 7:15PM Frezak (GM): SHE IS LEMONADE 7:15PM Apheori (GM): Shadows next to Rhu attack him. 1d20 + 10 vs ac rolling 1d20 + 10 vs ac ( 9 ) +10 = 19 rolling 1d20 + 10 vs ac ( 13 ) +10 = 23 7:18PM Ellemerr: Please play quicker. I'm watching Athyria falling asleep on my couch and that doesn't seem good. I mean, it's a nice couch an all. Sheep'd. 7:18PM Apheori (GM): Guarav isn't responding, so Rhu gets knocked over and takes some damage. 7:18PM Ellemerr: It's the right place to fall asleep. 7:18PM Frezak (GM): IS SHE IN MY SPOT? 7:18PM Gaurav: Eeks sorry 7:18PM Ellemerr: But I'm not sure it's the right time. Yes, Frezak, she kinda is. 7:19PM Apheori (GM): Other shadow moves up to invisible person Greibel was talking to. 7:19PM Frezak (GM): DAMN YOU NAAAAAMES 7:19PM Apheori (GM): Horrible noises ensue as the shadow is devoured. Apheori (GM) collapses on Frezak. 7:19PM Frezak (GM): ... I hope that's not an actual thing you do. 7:20PM Apheori (GM): Two other shadows attack Radek and Squirrel. It's all lungy and stuff. 7:20PM Frezak (GM): You'll end up with perforations. 7:20PM Gaurav: I gave Rhu -5 damage. Hope that's okay. 7:20PM Apheori (GM): rolling 1d20 + 9 vs Radek fort ( 8 ) +9 = 17 7:20PM Ganelon: Hits. 7:20PM Apheori (GM): Radek is sickened or something. Squirrel helpfully pukes on him. The remaining shadow lunges for hazz and gets blasted. Well, not blasted. Moth on a bugzapper. You know. 7:21PM Frezak (GM): 'Zot' 7:22PM Apheori (GM): Rhu, turn. Go. 7:22PM Gaurav: Move action: stand up. Standard action: Sequestering strike against the shadow next to Greibel. It's a melee attack so no attack of opportunity. rolling d20+10 vs AC ( 19 ) +10 = 29 7:24PM Apheori (GM): Totally. 7:24PM Gaurav: rolling 4d6+5 damage ( 4 + 6 + 6 + 2 ) +5 = 23 Hee. Is it still alive? 7:25PM Apheori (GM): It goes splat. Literally. You're splattered with bits of shadow. They feel like candy. 7:25PM Gaurav: Darnit. It has a nice teleport thing, but I don't suppose there's anything left to teleport. It -> the attack oh well 7:25PM Frezak (GM): Shadowguts. 7:25PM Gaurav: No, I attacked the other one. The one next to Greibel. Minor: Oath of enmity against the shadow next to me And done. 7:28PM Apheori (GM): Squirrel turns into a gaint crabby thing and claws the one next to her to shreds, then turns around and pukes on Radek some more. 7:28PM Gaurav: Poor Radek. 7:28PM Frezak (GM): Could be worse. 7:28PM Ganelon: Siiigh/ 7:28PM Apheori (GM): Now he's got godling puke and demonic godling puke. 7:28PM Frezak (GM): At least it's not singing puke. 7:29PM Apheori (GM): The puke starts singing. 7:29PM Frezak (GM): Yes! Gravy harmonizes 7:30PM Gaurav: Such wonderful music. 7:30PM Ellemerr: Amadi joins in, doing the... I wish I knew English singing terms now. I don't think it's called the "other voice". It's not the harmony, though; it's another track. 7:32PM Frezak (GM): Barbershop... triad. 7:32PM Apheori (GM): Uh, Gravy, do stuff. More stuff. Awesome stuff. THE GRAVE GOD. 7:33PM Frezak (GM): Gravy directs the singing into a blast of discord, and tries to scrub the shadowthing from this reality. Via the application of a shovel. rolling 1D20+11 ( 18 ) +11 = 29 AC I'll assume that's a hit. rolling 2D10+6 ( 1 + 3 ) +6 = 10 7:34PM Frezak (GM): And the shadow has... -5 to melee attacks. 7:35PM Apheori (GM): The shadow turns inside out and doesn't split or die. 7:36PM Frezak (GM): Also it's marked. And Gravy ends his turn. Still humming a malevolent tune. 7:46PM Apheori (GM): Ellemerr is your new dm. Enjoy. Apheori (GM) passes out. Amadi leads the song into a violent climax, making the shadows shimmer and grow. And grow... and grow... Eventually, they become a sort of dark cloud hanging over everything. Then it starts raining. Amadi pulls a large umbrella out of her pocket, opens it, and motions for everyone to gather 'round. 7:46PM Gaurav: Good night, Apheori! Rhu gathers around. 7:47PM Frezak (GM): Gravy... sort of crouches to get under the 'brella. 7:47PM Gaurav: We could stick the umbrella on one of Gravy's horns 7:47PM Ellemerr: Wonderful. You have all done well. Keep standing under the umbrella. We'll be back in a week. Have fun. Sweet nightmares y'all. 7:48PM Gaurav: Sounds like a plan. Good night, Ellemerr!
