Hm... seems like you're using IE. Can I suggest a better browser, such as Firefox, Chrome or Opera? There are other choices too.

If you wanna stick with IE, or can't switch, I'll warn you right now, while most of this site should work with IE, stuff might come up buggy, so you might not enjoy it as much...

Leth, let's treat these arrows as magic arrows imbued with the Flame Arrows spell, so they will do base damage (but count as magical) + 1d6 fire damage on a hit. Sound good?

Combat update later today, in the meantime please hop over to the Character Concepts & Campaign Info thread for a visual aid.

Zangua slashes at the lashing tail but misses, runs back up to the devil to swing again at suddenly empty air, then executes a swift spinning attack that hits the devil's leg, first with the blade and then with the butt of the pole. Felor raises his mace and charges in for a blow, but misses.

Leth still has an action to take.

I can't even remember where you picked those fire arrows up...
OOC:
I think I asked if I could buy some at one of the towns we stopped at way back. I honestly don't really remember either. I do remember we found some silver arrows, I think on Vorch? I really wish these forums had a search function, that would make this way easier lol
"Okay, let's try something new." Leth mutters to himself, and draws two of his enchanted flame arrows, setting them to the string simultaneously. He takes a deep breath, aims, and lets them loose together at the demon.

One flaming arrow sinks into the devil's hide; the other narrowly misses. The devil swivels its head to hold Leth in its blank and menacing stare, even as it presses its attack against Zangua.

Edit: Well familiar with the ways of polearm combat, Zangua dodges the devil's weapon, only to be bashed hard in the back by its tail.

Party members, it's your turn.

Zangua presses his attacks, knowing they must get through that blasted ice wall if they want to put an end to Gorham.

Leth gets a little nervous as the Devil locks eyes with him.

"Well, that got it's attention." He mumbles before letting loose two more fire arrows.

Zangua continues to batter away at the devil, missing with one swing as it dances away from him but landing another two-strike combination that leaves a spray of boiling black ichor on the icy ground. Leth, meanwhile, manages to put another burning arrow into the devil's hide.

Behind the ice wall, a swirl of mist rises up to the sky, carrying bright sparks with it. You hear a roar like wind through a tunnel, and see several silent flashes of bright blue light.

Felor, you're up.

Roaring as he tries for a third time to strike the fiend, Felor lashes out at the injured creature.

Jan 14, 2021 5:33 pm
Confounded again by the devil's unnaturally quick motions, Felor swings at air. The fiend, meanwhile, continues to treat Zangua as its biggest threat. It swings its tail from the right and its voulge from the left, trying to catch Zangua in a deadly scissoring attack.

Edit: Unable to dodge in time, Zangua is smashed between the converging blows, leaving him sprawled on the ground with the wind knocked out of him. He rises quickly as the devil backsteps, voulge already back to a ready position, a low hiss escaping its mandibles. Behind the ice wall, the whirlwind of mist and sparks continues to spin.

And now it's your turn again, party.

Zangua had hoped to save some of his energy for the inevitable fight with Gorham, but this ice devil proves too much of a threat. Reasoning that if they can't get past this guard they'll have no chance at all, Zangua fights with all his might, whirling his glaive in rapid strikes.

Zangua rushes the devil, hacking at its knuckles as it raises the pole of the voulge to defend itself, landing three successive strikes before raising his glaive high and bringing it down hard across the devil's mouthparts with a loud wet crack.

The ice devil Mecafrelon slumps backward, its face split in two. Ichor drips down onto its belly, and for a moment it seems to struggle to move, as if it is attempting to rise up again but cannot. Then, very suddenly, its carapace turns gray and brittle and a great gush of oily black liquid gushes from its mortal wound. The ice beneath it steams and cracks as the pool of ichor expands while the rapidly withering body crumples into it. Behind it, sheets of the ice wall begin to turn powdery and slough off.

Seeing their foe vanquished, Felor turns and charges towards the ice wall, shoulder first.

Attempting to shoulder-barge my way through the disintegrating wall.

The remnants of the wall yield immediately to Felor's shoulder.

Inside the cirque, the massive stone altar is now empty -- whatever was resting on it is now gone, along with Gorham and the five remaining devils. Before the altar, shrouded by the swirl of mist and sparks and snow, is a flickering, revolving window into darkness that jitters and changes its shape rapidly as it spins on its axis. Surrounding it, scattered about the ground, are twisted fragments of iron sunken into pits of melted ice.

"I really hope we're not too late." Leth says to the others as they survey the altar. "But there's only one way to find out...."

He looks back at his companions.

"Any objections to jumping through the spooky portal?"
Jan 18, 2021 5:48 pm
"None from me," says Zangua. "We already went through one window; might as well make it a habit."
