Unseen Attacker

“If there are no ill effects I would tie it out of the way, Feldard. Its pointless to wantonly destroy something. I can’t say what ward spells protect the fabric so tieing may circumvent disaster.” replied the mage.

The cleric stepped in, “Here, if you roush the fabric like this,” he said wrapping the material around itself, “Then it will hold back by itself. See?”

But, they couldn’t see for the red light was too intense. Still, they did their best to try to pull the material out of the way to see what lay beyond.

“We’re gonna be at this all day,” grumbled the dwarf.

They had to work with eyes closed in order to preserve their site. The others had a hard time making out the shapes of their two friends as the light from the many layers of curtains reflected off their armor and the walls of the hall.

“If this doesn’t work, just burn it,” suggested Hasan. “It’s just like underbrush in the forest, fire will clear it faster than…”

Suddenly pain shot into the dwarf. Something had bitten him! They weren’t alone amidst the curtains. Claws raked against Feldard’s body, but this time his armor protected.

In the midst of the light source, neither Maruc nor Feldard could see the attacker, but the others, who stood further away, could make out some sort of winged humanoid creature moving in the curtains.

  1. Feldard -4hp

    I’m going to do all the xp today though, so he’ll be gaining a level and getting more hp.

  2. Hasan

    A latent pyromania emerged from Hasan. “Feldard, stand back. Come now, we’ll never be able to fight this thing. Let’s burn it out of there!”

  3. Feldard (Dwf 3)

    “Argg! I’ve been bit! Maruc, stand back. We’re under attack!” He stepped away from his work of tying off the curtains, squinting against the light as he drew forth his axe from its place at his back. Hearing the clerics’ clink and chink of armour moving away he took a few blind slashes towards where he’d been attacked from. “I can’t see a thing! Anyone, some help here.. where is it?”

  4. Nicolai (T4)

    Nicolai attempts to take aim at the creature attacking Feldard, and will shoot if a clean shot can be made.

  5. Feldard gained 8 hp in his level gain (another nice roll). His saving throws and hit percentage got better too. Character page is updated.

  6. Maruc (Clr 4)

    Needing no further encouragement Maruc lept back out of the way to give Feldard room to defend himself as he withdrew. As his eyes grew more acustomed to the dark of the corridor he saw Nicolai sighing his bow and dived out of the way.

  7. Miklos (Mu 3)

    Knowing there was very little he could do here Miklos stood back and dwelt on the strange winged creature, he couldn’t place it straight away from his memory of the Beastary Mythologica but it would come to him. Perhaps on their return journey he might make a sketch or two to get the librarians opinion at the guild. Perhaps it was unique? He could make his name on this discovery…
