I should put something funny here.

Annetta

Annetta mutters more dark words, her curse searing out into the stormy night to afflict the now visible little buggers, once more the force of her curse painfully felt. Then she began to sing, words that would not make themselves understood, but that haunted the mind all the same. Focusing her will and her melody on the Owlbear, her song began to twist space and the beasts perceptions until it would be hard pressed to tell friend from foe while forcing it to lash out.

Cursing the Quicklings, dealing 2 damage to each.
Will of the Feywild +13 vs Will for 2d8+8+2d6 and teleporting it so that it's centered on I14 so it can get some shock therapy and beat the bear some about the head. Even if it does not hit, the Owlbear is dazed till the end of it's next turn at least.

Imperial Servant

Coreladdabar IV of Lockhaven

Unfazed by the impudent annoyance poking him in the side, Coreladdabar turns casually toward the Quickling and raises a hand. From his outstretched finger pours a flashing stream of color, blasting the nasty little creature in the face.

Coreladdabar is somewhat perturbed by the lack of concern the party has shown for his safety. He was used to having a bevy of supporters to prevent this kind of ... incident. But what is done is done. A bit of salve and a change of clothes and he'd be as good as new.

I am the poet,
The prophet of the pit
Like a hollow-point bullet
Straight to the head
I never missed...you

From behind the boulder, Roland sends two more arrows into the fray. They both fly true, hurting the owlbear in particular, which by now looks to be in dire straits, blood abundantly dripping from its beak. Not to be shown up by a full-blood, though, Taldrel unleashes a tactical manoeuver on the beast that overwhelms its puny mind and slow reflexes, dealing comparatively little damage but sending the creature stumbling back into Coreladdabar's lightning wall; guided along by a wave of the Niemund captain's hand, Landra proceeds forward as well. Annetta, finally, teaches the fey creature a thing or two about true fey power, actually ripping it from this world for the fraction of a second. When it reappears in a slightly different spot, it not only feels the shocking embrace of the wizard's stormy spell again, but it is so confused that it lashes out at one of its fellow bears. The attack is hasty and goes wide of its intended target, though.
With the group having landed three successful strikes in a row, however, their luck was bound to run out at some point, and it is Coreladdabar who finds his powers failing him when he would need them most. Faced with a diminuitive, yet surprisingly vicious opponent, he conjures up a pulsing spray of dazzling colours that, in theory, ought to do to the quickling what its cruel blade did to the half-elf. The fey's mind is strong, however, and not so easily dazed by the wizard's display of pretty colours. It still eyes him with a leering grin, seemingly not bothered by the fact that its left shoulder is cut to the bone, while Coreladdabar continues to feel the effects of its blade. Meanwhile, his highly effective lightning cage fades out of existence.


Roland was able to hide from the dire bear, but not the owlbear, on account of not having superior cover against the latter; since the former, however, in turn had cover from him, combat advantage was negated. He hits them anyway, for respectively 19 and 29 damage. Taldrel hits too for 12 damage, sliding the owlbear two squares back, indirectly causing another 10 lightning damage, and letting Landra shift one square closer to it. Annetta hits the owlbear too, for 31 damage, and teleports it a short distance, piling on another 10 lightning damage. Its attack against the dire bear misses, however. Coreladdabar also fails to hit the quickling and continues to be dazed, not making his saving throw. The Storm Cage effect ends.

I identify as smart.
(But that doesn't make it so...)


Petra M'orderial

Petra falls to his knees from the pain, but he doesn't utter a sound. He stands back up calmly, using his sword to help him as he stands, trying to mask his visible shakenness. One cannot show weakness before one's allies, even if one is bleeding from his side. In Elven, he calls: "Ordinarily, I only offer forgiveness once, fel monster. I will be merciful and offer it again."

His eyes glow with green radiance as he issues a strong smite, raising his sword into the air and smashing down with it.

"I suggest you accept my offer this time." Do not fall, Landra, for my mother's shield is with you.

Standard only, since dazed: Shielding Smite against Quickling 2, +15 vs. AC, hit: 2d8+9 fire damage (cit: 25+2d6 fire damage) and +2 AC to Landra until end of my next turn.

Granting combat advantage since dazed.

The quickling openly grins at Petra as he makes his second offer. It's not grinning any longer, however, after the paladin leaves a scorched wound across the fey's chest, courtesy of his flaming blade; instead, it hisses something at Petra in its obscure Elven dialect. As the creature draws out the last few words in an angry snarl, the half-elf is reasonably certain he actually understood what was said; something roughly along the lines of "he is mightier than you" is what he guesses it said. Immediately afterwards, the quickling establishes eye contact with the three bears and shouts a few brief words. No one present has heard them before, but the animals respond with roars and screeches, and move to attack with renewed vigour. One of the bears brings its massive bulk up the paladin and swings its claws at him; having to mind both the bear in front and the quickling at his back, one of the swings connects, soundly rattling his head. The other ursine moves in and chooses Taldrel as the subject of its primitive ire, perhaps sensing the protective blessing bestowed on Landra by Petra, but to no avail; the warlord dodges both its attacks nimbly. Thus occupied, he is caught by surprise as the owlbear suddenly rears up, an imposing sight to say the least, and lays into him with its cruel claws. Having expected the owlbear to attack, Roland unleashes an arrow to disrupt its swings, but the projectile zips past the beast's head with no effect. One blow thus connects solidly, almost ripping one of Taldrel's arms from its socket and leaving a series of deep wounds running all the way from the shoulder down to the wrist. However, the enchantment on the captain's shield activates almost immediately and restores much of his health again, leaving only a number of fading cuts on his arm. Though barely injured, the half-elven warlord feels an unnatural cold clinging to his body now, however, impeding his movements.

Petra hits the quickling for 24 damage, granting Landra +2 AC until the end of his next turn. As he did not engage the marked owlbear, however, his Divine Challenge is cancelled, and he can't use it on his next turn. He does make his save and is no longer dazed. Dire bear #1 moves into a flanking position and attacks Petra, hitting once for 14 damage. Bear number two moves closer and attacks Taldrel, but misses. The owlbear attacks Taldrel as well and scores a critical hit for 23 damage, with Roland's Disruptive Strike failing to hit its mark. This sets off the immediate reaction on his Shield of Defiance and lets him spend a healing surge (let me know if you don't want to use this for some reason). Regardless, Taldrel is slowed (save ends).

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes, look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

Landra

So, these...children command here. Well, let us make them even angrier. She smiled, unscathed, exultant in her element and undaunted by the owlbear's luck in avoiding her, then called out harshly in Elven, moving into the crush of fur and gesturing around her with her blade held high. "Is that all? Is that truly all you can muster? You are disgraces to the Feywild - come forth and prove yourselves!"

No doubt the nearer quickling - and the bears, for it seemed they did understand civilised speech after all - would be lining up to claw holes in her. Let them come. One blade can feel like ten in the right hands.

Using Into the Fray (minor) to move into L13 (if I get stopped by an OA in L12, that's just fine too: keep the rest anyway), then using Come and Get it (standard) to draw the Three Bears and the nearby Quickling into range and hopefully get some hits in, then burning an AP (and getting Taldrel's +1 Tactical Presence bonus) and using Thicket of Blades (standard) on the lot of them to get even more hits in, then Fey Stepping (move) into N13.

Come and Get It: Close burst 3, target all visible in burst
Effect: each target must shift 2 and end adjacent, if possible. Attack all targets that are adjacent.
Attack: +15 v. AC, 1d8+9 dmg.

Thicket of Blades: Reliable, close burst 1, target all visible in burst
Standard: +16 v. AC, 3d8+9 dmg, target is slowed (save ends)

Landra slips into the fray. The large bear she has to move past to get there takes a swipe at her as she goes, but fails to catch the nimble fighter. Her taunt, on the other hand, has visible results, as another three of her opponents now crowd around her, eager to crush the insolent eladrin. Before they can do anything about her, however, she turns into a whirlwind of scimitar strikes that leaves none of her enemies unscathed; only one of the dire bears emerges from her series of attacks with relatively minor injuries, bleeding from two smaller cuts on its forelegs. The owlbear and the quickling, however, are in fairly bad shape now, the latter not looking much better than its companion, whom Landra landed a devastating blow on earlier in the fight. Briefly passing through the curtain by means that, somehow, still remain available to her, the swordswoman then deftly vanishes, reappearing on the other side of the bleeding quickling. Gracefully assuming a defensive stance again as her blade comes to a rest, she focuses on the bear who dared elude her scimitar so, daring it to strike someone besides her.
Meanwhile, further to the south, the second quickling watches the situation slowly but surely deteriorate. It gives the still dazed Coreladdabar a look, perhaps considering whether to finish him off; then, giving a barely coherent snarl, it charges away towards the main mle, hoping to catch the eladrin off her guard. It fails to do so, albeit only barely; her reflexes still keen after that clash of arms, Landra brings up her shield just in time to deflect the quickling's blade. Doing so leaves her wide open to the attack of its companion, though, whose weapon finds its mark, rending her side and creating a deep, painful cut that puts an end to her sense of euphoria rather abruptly. Seeing its handiwork, the creature cackles cruelly and darts away northwards, barely leaving a trace of its passing in the muddy grass before vanishing entirely. Taldrel stabs at it, but the quickling moves too, well, quickly for him.
Alagand, seeing the owlbear's defences drop for a moment, steps a little closer to the beast and scorches it with flames of ill portent. Not only does this further hurt the enraged creature, but it brings strange clarity to Coreladdabar's mind, who finally feels the pain from the knife cut subside. In turn, Roland seizes the opportunity created by his elven companion's attack and takes a shot of his own at the owlbear, which catches the beast right in the throat, ripping out its windpipe The monster remains standing for a few more moments; then, its last breath escaping through the gaping hole in its throat, it crashes to the ground, sending mud splattering everywhere.


DB#2 gets an OA on Landra, but misses. Then, between her two attack powers, she deals 16 damage to DB#1, 10 damage to DB#2, 18 damage to QZ#2 and 32 damage to WO before Fey Stepping out. QZ#1 moves up to stab her and misses; QZ#2 has more luck, dealing 23 damage and dazing Landra (save ends). It then uses Blinding Speed, dodging Taldrel's OA, and turns invisible. Alagand hits the owlbear for 11 damage and grants Coreladdabar a saving throw, which he succeeds on. Roland chips in with Combined Fire for 32 damage, dropping the owlbear.

Wait, something is wrong.


Roland

Smiling as the monster goes down, Roland turns his attentions to the next great foe. He'd be taking a few feathers from that owlbear, it had been some time since he'd faced such a massive foe. Without the numbers to menace him, Roland continued to fire essentially unimpeded. He takes long, cool aim for the ear of the bear, snapping off another perfect shot!

Dire Bear shot with Hawk's Talon, Elven Acc. if I miss.

Taldrel Darlhunt

Taldrel was very happy he had invested in such a useful shield. The blow that would have ruined his arm left him with barely a scratch and a somewhat dimmer shield. Unfortunately he didn't get a chance to repay the favor - after recovering from the blow when he looked back the owlbear had an arrow protruding from either side of its throat. Shame.

Taldrel looked to other available targets - two bears and bleeding quickling. Petra could handle the little bugger, and Landra was focused intently on one of the bears. "Come on Landra! Let's take this beast out!"

Stepping to M13. Using Hammer and Anvil on DB1 with Landra.

His first quarry put down, Roland sets his sights on the nearby dire bear, nocking and unleashing another arrow. It strikes true, piercing the beast's flank and bringing forth a roar of anguish.
Meanwhile, the ever tactically-minded Taldrel advances towards the creature and spears it in the nose. Thus encouraged, his eladrin companion follows up with a scimitar stroke that cuts through the bear's thick fur and hide, blood mixing with rain as it pours down into the tattered grass. Perhaps as a result of the owlbear's death, the warlord feels the chill of winter leave his body.


Roland hits DB#1 for 24 damage. Taldrel moves and hits DB#1 for 10 damage, allowing Landra to make a melee basic attack against it, which connects and deals 14 damage. Taldrel saves against being slowed.

(But that doesn't make it so...)


Petra M'orderial

Petra's head slowly recovers from the bear's blow, and he stands up defiantly. He hoists his sword into the air, the rain steaming as it hits his flaming blade, his holy symbol dangling from his wrist. The vine tattoos on his body begin to glow green and appear to extend, snaking forth in green bursts of energy toward his fey and bear adversaries. At the same time, his seemingly spartan green cloak begins to glow with a branch and leaf pattern. The scene would look quite pretty in a less gritty setting. "May the vines of Melora scour you from this forest!"

Annetta

She glances around, smiling faintly as she lays her curse on the last of their apparent opponents. Then she reaches out, snapping her fingers, attempting to wipe the image of she and her allies from the beasts mind. It would not be a pleasant process at all for the beast.

Coreladdabar IV of Lockhaven

Coreladdabar isn't sure what happened, but he doesn't feel dazed anymore. What an unpleasant feeling. And even better, that stinking creature ran off to go bother someone else, no doubt to be swatted away like the pest it was.

And now it was time to wreck some real havoc. Coreladdabar raises his arms above his head and calls on some of his most powerful arcane magic. Suddenly, the heavens open up once again, this time pouring down icy hailstones upon the hapless attackers. The ground around them soon becomes covered with slippery ice.

Annetta focuses her fey powers, blasting the second dire bear the one that has yet to get a taste of her abilities with a creeping malediction. She then attempts to mire the mind of the other, but fails to get as much as a grasp on the beast's tiny thoughts. It slips beyond the searching streams of fey energy easily; her rod makes a lame fizzling sound, and that is unfortunately the extent of her achievements for now.
Coreladdabar, free of the quickling's harassment at last, calls on the arcane storm invisibly surrounding him, pulling forth a blast of icy cold that explodes around the bears with glacial tenacity; the ground beneath them rapidly freezes over, softly mirroring the bears and the evening sky. Tiny stalagmites of ice begin forming as rain drops hit the ice and freeze immediately. One of the brutes manages to weather the worst of the icy storm, the biting cold not penetrating far past its furry hide, though appearing to slow it a little all the same. Its companion gets to feel the full wrath of the blast, however; countless little ice crystals form all over its massive body, not hurting it so much as severely impeding its movement.
After neatly stepping to the side, Petra calls on the powers bestowed on him by Melora to dazzle into submission his enemies. It works on the nearby bear, which actually recoils from the paladin initially, giving a startled roar. Then, tongue hanging out, it stares at the hospitaler, an empty look to its eyes, before it shakes its massive head and recovers somewhat. The quickling is not so easily impressed by the half-elf's fancy display, on the other hand. It simply cackles, as if it knew something Petra doesn't.
Then, the dire bears burst into action again, the one next to the paladin laying into Landra with a growl of rage. In its dazed state, however, both of its swipes go wide. Its companion, after carefully treading closer across the icy ground, likewise attempts to maul the swordswoman, and succeeds in drawing blood: one of its swings smashes into the eladrin's shield, but the other one makes it past her defences, knocking her head to the other side and leaving some quite unbecoming cuts across her face. As if encouraged by this hit, both beasts seem to shake off the effects of Coreladdabar's spell, looking a good deal heartier again.


Annetta misses, with a natural 1 no less. Corel's Ice Storm misses DB#2, dealing 5 damage and slowing it while hitting DB#1 for 11 damage and immobilizing it. Petra crits on DB#1 for 11 damage, dazing it until the end of his next turn, and misses the quickling. DB#2 hits Landra for 17 damage. Both bears promptly save against their immobilized/slowed conditions.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes, look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

Landra

Luckily, the others seem to have the bear in hand, however durable it still seems. Knocked for a loop by the blows she's taken, she can't take full advantage, but still notes a flicker in her peripheral vision, and completes the turn the bear's last hit started, towards the wounded quickling that still lingers close by.

Her smile is a predatory thing. "So, child, you came back. How unfortunate for you."

Precision Cut on the quickling. If I'm lucky, it'll die or gently caress off so I don't get flanked by everything left in this combat in addition to granting CA, but if it doesn't, I'll mark it and let my current one expire.

Turning her attention to her quickling nemesis, Landra delivers a stroke that, while not a perfect hit, nevertheless is nothing short of beautiful in its accuracy, giving the small fey another not-so-subtle nudge towards death's door as well as purging the last remnants of knife-induced agony from the swordswoman's mind.
The gravely injured quickling glares at her with unabashed loathing, but reconsiders its position anyway and, deciding that this would be a good time to slink away, attempts to do just that. Unfortunately, the eladrin saw that decision coming and puts the keen edge of her scimitar in the fey's way. As a result, its shoulders and head are sliced almost completely away from the rest of its body when it literally runs into the sword; a surprised look frozen in the quickling's large eyes, its now lifeless body drips dark blood as it silently hits the mud and grass.
Meanwhile, the other quickling remains nowhere to be seen. Has it left the other fey to fend for themselves, perhaps?


Landra hits the quickling for 28 damage and saves against being dazed. It attempts to move away, but Landra's OA hits for 10 damage and kills it. Wherever did the other quickling go?

Deciding that one dazed dire bear isn't enough, Alagand hews at the second ursine with his glaive. It slips on the icy ground as it tries to evade the heavy blade, though, and what might have been a glancing hit now misses entirely. The cleric is more accurate with his healing powers fortunately, and Landra feels divine energy knitting almost all her wounds shut again. At Taldrel's urging, she drives her scimitar into the bear's chest, harshly reminding it of her presence.
The beast rears up, giving a terrifying roar the likes of which only a wounded bear can give utterance to. Were it sentient, it might now regret doing this, however, as one of Roland's arrows easily buries itself in the creature's now exposed underbelly, enraging the creature further.
In fact, it would be fair to say that the bear has had downright enough now; it suddenly moves with blinding speed, furiously lashing out at everyone near it. All Landra is hit by is a cool breeze of evening air as the beast's claw misses her by a considerable margin, but Taldrel and Petra are hammered hard by its blows. The latter in particular really feels the sting, and is fairly certain there would've been a broken rib or two if not for his cloak's protective enchantment.


Alagand misses with Wrathful Thunder, but uses his remaining Healing Word on Landra to let her spend a surge and regain an additional 12+5 hitpoints. Commander's Strike hits, and Landra deals 19 points of damage, as well as marking the bear. Roland hits once with Twin Strike to the tune of 14 points, bloodying the bear. This in turn triggers its Dire Rage; Taldrel is hit for 21 damage by the resulting close burst, and Petra finds himself on the receiving end of a critical hit, which only does 16 damage after his damage resistance. The bear gets a natural 1 on its roll against Landra.
I initially failed to take Petra's damage resistance into account, so please note that he is not bloodied after all. Currently anyway.

Petra M'orderial

Seeing that the bear nearest to him will fall soon, Petra rushes to prevent the other bear from causing too much damage. He darts in front of the bear and locks eyes with the creature. The glare he gives the bear has a primal meaning: "Face me, and we shall see who is the stronger between us." He leaps forward and stabs viciously, aiming for the bear's heart.

Perhaps that distant fey entity, unfathomable, unknowable, even, by mortal minds, does not approve of Annetta using her powers against beings from its own realm; otherwise, it is hard to explain why, for the second time in a row, the warlock's eldritch magic fails her so absolutely. Dreadful flames emerge from her rod and streak towards the dire bear, but like someone who watches an accident slowly unfold and cannot do anything about it, she somehow senses immediately that this attack will go astray. Her hopes are lifted for an instant as the mystic fire reaches the beast, eliciting a surprised snarl, and dances erratically about its bulk; but then it fades and is gone, as smoke is swiftly dispersed by a gust of wind. Coreladdabar, meanwhile, fares no better. His spell was meant to effect confusion in the hulking bears, but the only one bewildered in the end is the wizard himself, his release of arcane energies entirely without results.

Petra, correctly figuring that the dire bear next to him still is out of it sufficiently so as not to lash out at him, deftly moves away and up to the other fey beast, whom he presents with his flaming blade, issuing a challenge of a profoundly divine nature before lunging at the bear with his sword. It strikes true, sinking up to its hilt into its chest. The paladin must have missed the heart, what with the beast continuing to draw breath and generally looking quite alive, but it is a grievous blow regardless, visibly draining away some of its vigour.

Vigour is something that's anything but in short supply with the two beasts, however, as they proceed to show the party of adventurers just why angering bears, let alone dire bears, is widely and rightfully considered a bad idea. The wounded bear whom Landra is menacing lets out a fierce roar that is thunderous in volume someone overlooking the valley from one of the nearby hills might actually mistake it for distant thunder mixed with the crash of lightning. It is an omen of things to come: for the eladrin, who has thus far not had a great deal to worry about from the bears, the next few seconds consist of nothing but the successive impacts of two huge iron rams that smash more than one bone in her body to bits while white light explodes before her eyes. Dizzied from this powerful barrage, she vaguely feels something big and warm envelop her; this 'something' turns out to be the bear's mighty forelegs as it gives the swordswoman a quite literal bear hug. There is immense power in these limbs, she realises for the first time, perhaps, and she knows the bear will do its best to crush her to death unless she can escape somehow.

Petra does not fare much better. Enraged by his challenge, or more likely by his vicious sword attack, the dire bear hits him. Twice. Hard. One swing hits the side of his chest with the strength of no less than three dwarven maul-fighters, knocking the air out of the paladin and conveniently smashing aside his shield; the other forepaw, by the feel of it made of pure lead, connects a little higher, tearing dangerously at Petra's neck and all but dislocating his jaw. Still, despite all this, the half-elf keeps enough of his wits about him to dodge the bear's attempt of taking him up in a hug as well. Given the shape he's now in, it's not much of a comfort, but sometimes you have to take what you can get.


Annetta just barely misses. Apparently this is not a good game for your character's name to begin with the letter A if you want to hit anything. Corel follows this up by rolling a 3 and 1 respectively, missing both bears. Maybe the 'letter A syndrom' also extends to arcane powers? However, Petra crits with Enfeebling Smite for 19 damage, bestowing a -2 attack roll penalty on the bear.

The bears then proceed to bounce back from all of this with a vengeance and dish out some punishment of their own! DB#1 lands both of its blows against Landra, dealing 38 damage altogether. It also succeeds on its secondary attack, meaning Landra is now grabbed. DB#2 returns the favour to Petra, scoring a crit and a regular hit that add up to 37 points of damage. Petra escapes being grabbed, however, though he is now bloodied.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes, look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

Landra

The bear has her in an ever-tightening grip, but she doesn't count herself out just yet, straining to contort her body through weak points in the wounded bear's muscled legs, keeping hold of her scimitar and jabbing painfully at the beast. It might well keep her here, but it was going to pay for it in blood.

Using the move action for an escape attempt: Acrobatics v. Reflex at +16, or Athletics v. Fortitude at +14.

If I escape, shift into N14 and then use Spinning Sweep (+15 v. AC, 2d8+9 damage and target is knocked prone) on the bear.
If I don't escape, use Comeback Strike (Reliable, +15 v. AC, 2d8+9 damage and can spend healing surge)

Against her hulking enemy, Landra finds that exploiting her natural nimbleness works significantly better than trying to actually break the beast's embrace would, and so she deftly slips out of the bear's grasp, dodging aside and severing several sinews in one of its hindlegs with a swift scimitar stroke, sending it crashing to the ground with a surprised roar.

In the middle of this mle, a small grey form suddenly appears, nobody taking notice of it until it is too late. The quickling's blade buries itself in Petra's spine; at first, the paladin can't feel his legs anymore, but an instant later, the pain overwhelms him, casting his thoughts into darkness as he crumbles down. His attacker meanwhile turns to the other adventurers, blood still dripping from its knife. It is grinning openly, looking entirely unafraid of what is sure to come now.


Landra successfully escapes the grab and hits with Spinning Sweep for 14 damage, knocking the bear prone. The quickling makes a reappearance and stabs Petra for 19 damage, dropping him to -7 and causing his mark to expire.

Annetta watched her previous attempt with witchfire fail and then, with a painful shudder, she felt the power renew itself, the sudden surge of arcane power within her not without it's cost however, blood trickling down from her nose slowly. She hardly even noticed. Instead, she faced the Quickling, crying out "BURN! BURN FROM WITHIN!" as she channeled the arcane through to the annoying little bastard.

Taldrel was too preoccupied with the bear in front of him to notice Petra getting whittled away, but the sudden appearance of the quickling next to him surprised him.

He hoped he didn't have to watch out for him much after this.

Taldrel turns his attention to the bear from before. It's attention was still on Landra. Taldrel takes the opportunity to throw it off guard.

I identify as smart.
(But that doesn't make it so...)


Petra M'orderial

For a brief second, Petra's world explodes in a starburst of agony, followed by the sinking feeling of unconsciousness. But his eyes flare open, and he hears the voices of Taldrel and Alagand, and the words of his mother echo inside his head for a second: Remember that every blow you suffer is one that could have been aimed at another.

He regards the bear that swatted him; the poor creature is struggling to deal with Corel's web, and Petra hates the thought of attacking a restrained opponent. "Come, my fey friend," he calls to the quickling in Elven, trying his best to mimic the creature's strange accent. "Let us finish this." He brings his shield to bear in his right hand before pivoting and delivering a backhanded swipe with his left.

Move: stand up.
Minor: Divine Challenge against quickling.
Standard: Enfeebling Strike against quickling, +15 vs. AC, hit: 1d8+9 fire damage and quickling takes a -2 to attack rolls until the end of my next turn.


Alagand: Merci pour le healing, mais why slide the creature to N13? I'm a bit confused.

I am the poet,
The prophet of the pit
Like a hollow-point bullet
Straight to the head
I never missed...you

Whispering some soothing, sacred words, the tattooed elf channels healing energies into the motionless body of the paladin. His voice swiftly takes on a wicked tone, however, as Alagand then utters phrases of command directed at the quickling. Struggle as it might, the fey creature is helpless to resist the cleric's dominant urging and is lured closer into the fray, where it stands bewildered, as if unaware of how it got there in the first place. Roland's arrows both find their mark as well, hastening the bear's demise along a little more.

Taldrel attempts a distracting attack against the gravely injured bear, hoping to create an opening in its defences for Landra to exploit. The ursine swats his spear aside with a growl, however, and Landra finds no way to land a strike of her own. Annetta meanwhile turns her attention to the quickling, even drawing on her own life essence to channel the same energies that already failed her but a few moments ago. In a cruel twist of fate, they do so again, the flames half-heartedly swirling about the fey a little before vanishing. Fickle are the fey, and doubtlessly amused by the occasional failure of those who serve them; her would-be target, despite the grim position it is in, cackles at this dubious display of arcane 'mastery' and spouts forth a blur of words in Elven, something that could be vaguely rendered as "prapsellSHOyasomminboudatsoon". Gibberish, maybe. Then again, maybe not.

Coreladdabar decides that the thick sheet of ice still glimmering beneath the two bears isn't enough of a hindrance and conjures up a giant, magical spider web of sorts. One of the bears gets hopelessly tangled up in it, while the other just sniffs at it with bored curiosity before turning its attention to other matters again.

Finding himself greatly reinvigorated both by Alagand's healing magic and Taldrel's curt encouragement, Petra gets on his feet again, a little unsteady still, perhaps, but very much alive. He surveys the situation for a moment, then turns away from the entangled bear and focuses his divine ire on the quickling instead, striking the fey a blow that staggers the creature, almost causing it to drop its knife in the process. Still, it hangs on to life, snarling under its breath.

The two bears appear to be getting the hang of things, soundly thrashing the party's defenders once more. Petra may come to regret turning his back on the hulking animal as its claws batter his back, rending the armour and just barely failing to rip his spine apart. Wrapping its powerful limbs around the paladin, the bear then takes him up in a hug of dubious purpose; at least now Petra can guess how the bear feels about being tangled up in the magical web. Landra similarly feels the other bear's wrath and finds herself barely hanging on to consciousness after its heavy paws have smashed into her body. While she could swear she only finished wriggling out of the ursine's powerful embrace, she finds herself in the same situation all over again. It is little comfort that in the process of attacking her, the second bear has gotten caught up in Corel's web just as badly as its companion.


Alagand restores Petra to 27 hitpoints and successfully hits'n'slides the quickling, dazing it as well. Roland hits DB#2 twice for 18 and 13 damage. Taldrel fails to hit, but heals Petra for another 35 hitpoints. Annetta misses some more. Corel hits DB#2 with Web, immobilizing it. Bear number one gets up, hits Landra for 35 damage, bloodying her, and grabs her. His companion hits Petra for 26 damage, also bloodying him, and grabs him as well. Both bears end their turns immobilized.
