The Slaying of Anabisa

Vengeance for the twin halflings costs the Healer his life... temporarily.

(1/9/2011)

- Left the Drow priestesses’ room where the statue was made flesh
- Familiar voice of Drow Priestess, “Come now, don’t be shy. Don’t just send one little one.”
Gromske “What about two little ones?”
- Large room, back half concealed in magical darkness
- Gheahlea launches Fireball, Alton launches Rod of Wonder, both fizzle against darkness
- Darkness drops, revealing Drow Priestess, Duergar, spiders
- Drow Priestess casts Pillar of Flame => Gromske, Vyrson, Alton
- Afton throws at Duergar Slave 4, critically disarms him
- Gromske charges DuSl4, 46 dmg, killshot (splat)
- Gheahlea floats 30ft high, casts Whirling Blade, gets knocked down and webbed, breaks free with strength
- Afton finishes DuSl
- Drow Assassin drops in on Gromske, renders him helpless, but fails to kill him
- Alton Rod of Wonder begins fizzling
- Priestess glides down from her perch, charging and striking Alton
- Vyrson surrounded by 2 duergar, 1 floating force sword, 1 spider => add Drow Assassin
- Vyrson bails from center, Gheahlea drops a badass fireball,
killing 2 DuSl, sizzling spider, Assassin, Priestess
- Priestess attempts to Death Touch Gheahlea, deals 25 dmg, but fails to kill the halfling
- Gheahlea returns the favor with an Ice Knife for 15
- Assassin makes a solid hit against Vyrson
- Priestess uses Slay Living on Alton and succeeds in killing him
- Afton is enfuriated, critically stabs Priestess, finishing her
- Gheahlea lines up and casts Lightning Bolt, frying second spider but missing the Assassin
- Vyrson slashes furiously, Assassin blocks, but Vyrson draws first blood
- Assassin misses Vyrson and kills last spider, then misses Vyrson again
- Gheahlea’s Lightning Bolt fizzles off Assassin, no damage
- Vyrson lands a few quick slashes on Assassin
- Assassin slashes across Vyrson’s eyes, almost blinding him but missing,
though his critical sword infects Vyrson with spores, which inflicts fatigue and CON damage
- Gromske finally manages to his feet, closes in on Assassin and finishes him off
- Gheahlea shares restoration potion with Vyrson

- Restore statuses at Gyuud’s Temple
- Clerics at temple topside call High Priest, who shows after a couple hours
- High Priest clears all from the room but the soulless bodies, lengthy ceremony,
he emerges looking exhausted
- High Priest hands necklace to Afton and she smashes it
- Twins’ father tells the story, “Everything was going well and the store was running fine.
We were getting pretty prosperous. Must have been in the wrong location at the wrong time.
Didn’t know they were Drow at first. They sent some agents to move into our economic area
and I resisted them. They took it upon themselves to neutralize us. I dunno if they’ve
managed to sway any other companies in that district. I just know I refused, so they opted
to take us out instead.”
- Alton heals party up and they head to the Elders.
- Priestess is known as Anabisa, troublesome to many.
- Elder suggests destruction of the body. Alton burns the body. They preserve the ashes.
