    MILITARY BASE (Blue Knight, Greystone, Imago, Shiver, Ursa; NPCs: Brimstone, The Drifter, Eidolon, Felsic, Maze, Nocti, Tenebrae, Verve, Vestige)
    The lamps already assembled around the plane caused Nocti's discarnate form to turn tangible. Greystone swiped at the man, only to watch as he doubled over, reverting back to his natural form: the shadow entity was gone; in it's place was a man a few years Greystone's senior, with black hair slicked back over his pale skull.

    Eidolon's eyes went from her lover to her protector. Brimstone was pinned by the bear, but if she could get free, she might be able to save Nocti... With a thought, she made another member of the Armada appear.

    Werebear, she thought as she conjured an illusory Jesus Eguchi, meet wereboar.

    The illusory Razorback lowered his head as he charged Ursa, trying to knock him off of Brimstone.

    • Imago (8 - K9)


    Again, I'm neglecting powers... Nocti's sporting insubstantial, which I neglected when Felsic attacked him. Granted, he made that save, but I set the precedent that this would work. As it's me flubbing it up, and moves this forward, I'm going to have Jack's attack go through: Nocti - Toughness - DC 23: 1D20+4 = [14]+4 = 18
    and Nocti - Fortitude - DC 18: 1D20+2 = [6]+2 = 8


    Nocti's form is sustained in duration. He'll try to stay in his form as a reaction: Nocti - Concentration - DC 20: 1D20+1 = [10]+1 = 11
    and fail.

    The Drifter will continue to set up flood lamps.

    Eidolon will try and help Brimstone by going for Ursa. DC 23 Toughness, sir. Also, Will DC 18. Like I told TM a while back, keep this damage separate from any others, as overcoming the Illusion will erase the damage. Again, only Ursa will see Razorback.

    Brimstone's attempt to escape Ursa: Brimstone - Grapple: 1D20+9 = [13]+9 = 22
    That doesn't take into account the -4 penalty Ursa graciously hands out for escaping pins. Given his +17 bonus? I'm pretty sure Ursa will tie it on his worst roll. No need to roll, McGuffin: you win.

    Ursa will need to make a DC 16 Toughness save against her Energy Aura 1. Feel the burn!

    Verve is on lamp patrol.

    Ursa is up.

      "Anyway, please keep me apprised uf Buddy's situation. Meanwhile, I must kontinue mein tour uf apologies, und thank Agnes for her efforts at helping me relax...regardless uf how misguided they may haf been."

        The sudden appearance of the boarman caught Otso off guard, but it was that same suddenness that clued him into what was going on. "You're going to have to do better than that illusionist, we were warned of your tricks."

        He brought his forearm to his opponent's throat to cut off her oxigen and induce unconsciousness. He spoke through gritted teeth because of the flames licking at his body pinning hers to the ground. "It's okay, don't fight it. Just surrender and you won't have to get hurt."

        DC 23 Toughness save: 1D20+10 = [8]+10 = 18, Bruised. DC 18 Will Save: 1D20+9 = [10]+9 = 19, passes. DC 16 Toughness Save: 1D20+10 = [16]+10 = 26, passes. Keep Pinning Brimstone and apply a Chokehold on her.

          NVAE, QUAD (Kas; NPCs: Agnes)
          Asking around yielded the information Kas wanted: Agnes had not yet left her room. After loitering outside for a few minutes, his patience was rewarded: the young girl slipped out of the girls' dorms.

          MILITARY BASE (Blue Knight, Greystone, Imago, Shiver, Ursa; NPCs: Brimstone, The Drifter, Eidolon, Felsic, Maze, Nocti, Tenebrae, Verve, Vestige)
          "It's okay, don't fight it. Just surrender and you won't have to get hurt."

          "Right," Brimstone grunted, "just--HHHHNN!--die like the others!"

          Felsic - Attack: 1D20 = [4] = 4
          Ugh.

          Vestige will move to help with the lamps.

          Maze will charge Tenebwark: Maze - Attack: 1D20+10 = [10]+10 = 20


          Penetrating on Maze's weapon will let her get around Bulwark's impervious. Tenebrae - Toughness - DC 23: 1D20+14 = [11]+14 = 25
          I didn't expect much there.

              Good, looks like jumping the gun aside, it was all playing out just as planned. Imago swept his head left and right across the battlefield. That left Eidolon, so the Swiss kept moving to see if he could find her. But first, TeneBulwark looked like (s)he should go down for the count, to free up Blue Knight and Maze. With a little hint of inspiration from the Nephilim, Imago made a green flame javelin appear, and lofted it downrange.


              OOC
              You forgot to update Imago's move to I9 last round. And also moving ahead due west how many squares a regular move action covers.

              TeneBulwark takes Perception Damage 8 - Will DC 23

                As she sneered at the hero pinning her, his newest ally sent a spectral spear through one of hers.

                New round. Tenebulwark will try to break out of the snare. I'll have you roll a Toughness save for the power, Shock. DC 27 to see if we snap out. That will be the full action, then it's Violet's turn.

                    Violet saw that Nocti was wobbling and decided to try to finish him off. A hail of ice shards flew from her hand to the illuminated foe.

                    Snare Toughness: 1D20 + 6 = [12]+6 = 18 Fail by 9. Snare Injured

                    Ice Blast attack: 1D20 + 9 = [14]+9 = 23 Toughness DC21 + Autofire if that hits

                          Kas couldn't really respond to Agnes, since it was obvious she hadn't listened to him at all the previous evening. At her unabashed joy that he'd changed his mind he simply grunted non-commitally. He really didn't understand how someone could mistake an apology for being terse to somehow, suddenly coming over to their side of a debate, but he knew trying to explain the difference was going to be an exercise in futility.

                          The worst part about this was, he knew of no humane way to guard himself against Agnes' power, so his choices were...do something morally abhorrent or allow himself to be violated repeatedly by someone with no grasp of the immorality of their actions. Ugh.

                                A volley of hail pelted Nocti. A large chunk connected with the side of his head, knocking him to the ground. With the pavement coated in ice, he lost his footing and cracked his skull against the glaring surface.

                                "Go help the others!" Felsic shouted to Greystone. "I'll contain him!"
                                Jack nodded, though he wasn't sure what all he could do as he looked over to the other fight and saw a girl's body fall from Bulwark's. The American's eyes then darted over to Otso on the ground and figured it'd be best to help him out then they could focus on the Armada's illusionist. Moving over to where Otso had a girl pinned down Jack leaned in and reached out touching the palm of his hand to her face, allowing the toxin his new glands were making to be absorbed by her skin despite the burning sensation he felt when he made physical contact with her.



                                OOC:
                                _____________
                                Jack will move to B16.
                                Attacking Brimstone. Jack's Melee Attack: _: 1D20+8 = [2]+8 =10, don't think that'd hit even with her pinned down like she is.
                                Jack's Re-rolled Attack: _: 1D20+8 = [5]+8 =13, and with the re-roll bonus that'll be a 23 total to hit.

                                He's using Toxic Frog Skin on her, no claws. So that'll be a Fortitude DC 18 for her. Plus I'll assume Jack will need to make a Toughness DC 16 against Brimstone's energy aura.

                                Jack's Toughness: _: 1D20+8 = [7]+8 =15, and that's a failure by 1 so that'll be a Bruise for him.
