    Alainn slides out from behind the cover provided by the ancient stone pillar. The iron shod staff begins to glow with piercing golden light that flashes from Alainn's fist gripped around the staff and smites the skeletal archer, driving it back against the wall. The torrent of sunlight pours into the unholy animated bones, reducing them to an ashen smear in the shape of a skeleton upon the mold and mildew covered walls.

    The Restless Dead!- Encounter Complete!

    By the time the remaining ashes of the incinerated skeleton drifted to the floor, the heroes were well on their feet. No undead creture stirred. The forgotten legacy that was the Cult of Vecna now were finally laid to rest, beneath the city of Westcrown.

    As some of the party members tend to their wounded once more, the rest of them explored their surroundings, hoping to score another hidden cache like before. Entering the room where the undead burst out from, the first thing they saw (or even smelled), were the ravaged remains of a goblin, splattered and ravaged across the entire floor. Blood that was on the floor (and walls) were caked, the flesh long since dried up, and even the bones rotted from the decay. The only thing that caught their attention was a small note, nestled close to two bundled packages, neatly wrapped in bandages.

    As they unwrapped the bandages one by one, they were astonished at their findings. The first bundle contained what appeared to be rusty looking steel gauntlets. The other, a large and heavy glaive. As William inspected the items, he noticed that they were magical in nature. The glaive itself glowed brightly at a moment's touch, illuminating the room momentarily, before dimming out entirely. The Swordmage could even sense the bloodlust coming from the guantlets, as if they cried out to slay the weary, and the weak (it even disturbed William for a moment when it growled horribly towards Grokka's general direction).

    The note, on the other hand, didn't make much sense, from the look of it. A number of squiggles were written and crude stick figures were drawn on the parchment. In the end though, the party could only surmise that it was probably written in Goblin (perhaps even by the long deceased goblin itself). Whatever it said, didn't made sense, and the words merely trail off, until the ink itself trails off of the paper, ending with a number of bloodstains at the end of the letter. It seems the goblin was the last victim of the wretched undead...

    Putting on the rusty gauntlets, Hertzog flexes his hands for a moment, surprised at how easily his fingers move in them. As he tests the balance and motion of his weighted hands, Hertzog notices William's unnerved gaze. He smiles and reassures the swordmage,

    "If they make you uncomfortable, think how the Hellknights will feel."

    Hertzog thinks briefly about going back to ask the goblins about this note that they'd left, but decides that one encounter with the sewer-dwelling munchkins was prickly enough for the day. The notion is too distracting to him however and Hertzog begins to try and sound out the goblin language from the pictures he could remember in the note and the curses hurled in the previous battle. Five minutes into this exercise, Hertzog decides that goblin can't be spoken in a natural deep orc voice and begins to repeat the process two octaves higher in a painfully unpracticed falsetto. Thoughts cross his mind that there are more important things to attend to, but Hertzog reassures himself that being a half-orc, he should share some kindred ties to the goblins and thus only needs to squeek out a few more syllables to finally understand the note.

    Navigating the sewers does not go well for him.


    Short Rest
    Exp: 555+125 = 680
    Item Acquired: Gauntlets of Blood (Heroic)

    William hands of the gauntlets to Hertzog, with a bit of a grimace.

    "The have a magic to them, indeed. I'm not quite sure I'd like to see what happens to the recepient of one of your strikes while wearing such a macabre pair of gauntlets, but I can at least be glad they probably deserve what's coming to them"

    William then fishes the sunrod out of the filthy water, and continues down the sewer path, his mind more focused on the grunts and squeeks emenating from the half-orc than any dangers that might lurk ahead in the darkness.

    William using one healing surge to return to full health.

    Typhor picks up the sunblade glaive and amuses himself for a minute or two by fiddling with the light in the room. He runs through a few simple attack routines with the weapon, and is pleased at its balance.

    As the party prepares to resume the trek through the sewers, Typhor attempts to adjusts the light level to strike a balance between easy navigation and the risk of detection, then focuses every ounce of his attention on avoiding any further encounters.
    Status: 28/30 HP, 6/9 surges remaining, 0 Action Points.

    Wrapped up in his tune, Grokka continues down the passages with the party. His lyrics seem to remind him of the surroundings at just the right time, perking his head up just in time to turn and falling quiet just as other noises appear.

    "Perfect! I think this thing has about run it's course, anyway. Glad a light source won't be an issue any time soon"

    With that comment, William tosses the half burnt out Sunrod into the next pile of filth they pass.

    Grokka watches the dying sunrod disappear into a pile of horrible and stifles a gag as the stinking mound begins to glow with an unnatural light. "The sooner out of these sewers the better, I'd prefer not see my stew make an encore performance tonight."

    Party’s Hijinks meter: 75
    Party’s lowest Stealth: 5 ( +6 due to 3 successful Dungeoneering checks) = 11
    Party’s Highest Perception: 26

    The heroes made their way past the dank tunnels. Throughout their travels, they could hear the scream and perhaps the cry of an unfortunate victim off in the distance. They even walked past many more dead creatures. Thankfully though, these remained dead. It almost seemed as though they walked for days within these dark tunnels.

    Stealth check: Success
    Just as the party was about to turn past the eighteenth symbol, they managed to hear the chattering and clanking of medium armour not far from them (perhaps not even a hundred feet from their current position. Soon it was joined by raucous cries and screams. As Typhor raises his hand to halt the party, he moves slowly towards the side of the tunnel, hoping to get a closer look on what they were about to fight.

    As he poked his head for a brief moment, he managed to investigate the tunnel. This large, oddly shaped room has four exit tunnels and multiple sewer channels. One part of a channel connects to a long cesspit. Several large wooden planks form a simple bridge over another section of the channel. The cesspit is only a few inches deeper than the main channel. However, it was the denizens standing at the intersection, near the wooded planks, that caught Typhor’s attention.

    Hellknights, and they were Armigers, by the look of them. There were six of the Hellknights standing nearby. Two Officers, and the rest were soldiers.


    Perception Check: Success
    Alainn and Grokka listen in on the two separate groups. Apparently the Hellknights have broken up into small search parties in order to find the heroes.
    Right now, the two platoons right in front of the heroes are arguing amongst themselves as to decide on which direction they should go. The group closest to them vote south, while the other group votes on going east.

    As such, they are too busy to even notice the heroes, giving the heroes an advantage to ambush these Hellknights.

    The hunters have now become the hunted...

    Combat Advantage:
    Armiger Officers deal 1d6 extra damage on melee and ranged attacks against any creature granting combat advantage to it.

    I posted the coordinates of everyone as well, making it easier to plan your attacks (Letter, then number).
    Another way to make it easier is to post what monster you hit e.g. Melee Basic attack on Hobgoblin grunt(F5)

    Features:
    Illumination: Typhor’s Sunglaived grants light in a 20 square radius (or to whatever radius Tyhpor demands). The area is treated as a normally lit and illuminated tunnel.

    Sewer Ditch: This tunnel’s ditch is filled up to knee-deep water. The water is calm though, so it isn’t treated as difficult terrain. However, the water itself is extremely filthy and hazardous to an injured PC’s health. Any BLOODIED PC wading through the water is subject to an endurance check of DC 15. A failed roll results in the PC infected with Filth Fever. Also, jumping down or up the ditch wall takes a full square of movement.


    OOC Details:
    You guys have a surprise round against your targets.
    Remember to roll for initiative as well.

    Holding his spikes close in hand, Hertzog is deadly quiet until the moment he bursts around the corner, running full tilt at the Hellknights. Confident in his abilities, Hertzog closes quickly with one of the armigers. The Hellknight had long since turned to face him and raises his sword in defense. Overconfidence telegraphs Hertzog's attack and the Hellknight parries easily. Ready to be back in the fight, Hertzog stays on the balls of his feet, seething with rage.

    Alainn slips forward after Typhor and Hertzog, following the flowing warlords instructions. This allows her to strike the Hellknights unawares. A crash of thunder erupts from her staff as she slams the end of it against the flagstones. The stone is cracked and shards of it scatter across the sewer ledge and into the water. Two of the Hellknight patrol are flung bodily through the air, one landing in the filthy water with a great splash. The other slides close to the edge, only a quick stab with his sword into the dirt between the flagstones saving him from going over.

    "Nice to turn the tables on them for once."

    Hunting for Hellknights! Round 1

    As the heroes attack, the Hellknight group on the other side of the ditch soon realized they were under siege.

    "To arms men! We've found the rebels! Remember our orders: Kill on sight! Return the leader in for interrogation!" shouts the standing officer, as the rest of his platoon ready their blades to meet their opponents.

    Hellknight Armor (Armiger):
    Hellknights are known and feared for their intimidating suits of armor. Armiger ranks gain a +1 bonus to AC (already added).

    Combat Advantage:
    Armiger Officers deal 1d6 extra damage on melee and ranged attacks against any creature granting combat advantage to it.

    I posted the coordinates of everyone as well, making it easier to plan your attacks (Letter, then number).
    Another way to make it easier is to post what monster you hit e.g. Melee Basic attack on Hobgoblin grunt(F5)

    Features:
    Illumination: Typhor’s Sunglaived grants light in a 20 square radius (or to whatever radius Tyhpor demands). The area is treated as a normally lit and illuminated tunnel.

    Sewer Ditch: This tunnel’s ditch is filled up to knee-deep water. The water is calm though, so it isn’t treated as difficult terrain. However, the water itself is extremely filthy and hazardous to an injured PC’s health. Any BLOODIED PC wading through the water is subject to an endurance check of DC 15. A failed roll results in the PC infected with Filth Fever. Also, jumping down or up the ditch wall takes a full square of movement.

    A confused look crosses Grokka's face "Leader?" He looks at each member of the group in turn. "Good thing we havn't had our formal elections yet, they won't know who to take back to their clubhouse!"

    Grokka clears his throat, and begins to sing in a deep, echoing voice:
    To arms, friends, to arms!
    Let the tunnels rumble and quake.
    Hear the call, the Hellknights fall
    No prisoners shall we take!

    As the thunderwave blasts over the Armigers, William moves quickly to take advantage of the magical energies sill vibrating through the air.

    He lashes out with his longsword, sending coils of electricity rushing towards one of the Armigers. However, the lasting magic in the air has the opposite effect, causing his lighting coil to disperse before making contact with his enemy.

    "I'm guessing fighting in a sewer isn't something the Rose King had in mind when he perfected his techniques!"

    Without losing focus, William traces a familiar rune in the air, which dances with electric red light over the head of the other Armiger, reminding the Armiger that the swordmage is capable of dealing with multiple threats at a time.

    The Armiger turns his focus towards William, leaving an open flank to Hertzog. The half-orc moves slowly until for a moment, gaining positin, and then jabs violently with one of his spikes. The weapon punches through the warrior's thick armor and twists, leaving a sickening wound. Having caught the Hellknight's attention, Hertzog swings again with both of his weapons, trying to finish off his foe. The Armiger manages, barely, to bring his weapon to parry one of the attacks, but the second catches him squarely in the chest.

    The Hellknight sways, but remains standing, looking to his allies for succor.

    Inspired by Hertzog's devastating assault, Typhor shifts to his watery form and moves into flanking position, with the intent of distracting the badly-wounded Armiger so that Hertzog can finish him off.

    As the Armiger tries to turn from Typhor, a cruel spike emerges from his chest. The Hellknight collapses in a heap, revealing an evilly smiling half-orc behind him. Hertzog calls across the corpse,

    The Half-Orc and the Genasi's mirth were cut short however, when they heard the standing officer shout, "To battle, Brothers! We may yet earn our ranks within the Hellknights!"

    As the two knocked down Hellknights stood up, the remaining Hellknights withdrew their weapons (with the officer himself withdrawing a nasty-looking crossbow). As the two guards rush over and try to flank the heroes from either side, the officer offers covering fire, focusing his attention on Alainn.

    "Death to the heretic!", the officer yells out.

    He lets loose a bolt, and before anyone could much as blink an eye, the bolt planted itself firmly in Alainn's right arm.

    Grokka raises an eyebrow at Hertzog. "King Grokka? Emperror Grokka? Yeah, I like the sound of that!" Seeing his friend's blood spilled yet again, though, does not sit well with the Half-Giant and he bounds towards the Hellknights with his greatsword gleaming in the radiant light of the nearby shining weapon. With a Goliath battle hymn on his voice he swings at the Hellknight but misses wildly and nearly chops his own arm. "Josephine! We talked about this in the tunnel, remember? You hit THEM! Hertzog, it looks like I'll be squire Grokka for now, until SHE grows up and acts like an adult!" He glowers at his blade.

    Alainn grimaces and rips out the crossbow bolt. She then flourishes with her engraved and iron-shod staff and a ribbon of flashing light springs from her outstretched hands gripped on the center of the spinning staff. The torrent of sunlight drives the Hellknight to his knees again. The young invoker shakes her head at the half-orc bard with a pained grin on her features as she slides up against the wall.

    "Grokka, my days of taking you seriously are comin' to a middle."

    Turning from the fallen Armiger, Hertzog moves back towards the wall and Alainn's prone quarry. Eager to carry his rage towards the next target, Hertzog drives both of his spikes down at the hellknight. Reacting quickly, the Armiger rolls to the side, dodging one hand completely and causing the second to glance off his shoulder. The cunning dodge only feeds the half-orc's anger, who growls at the wounded Armiger.

    Cursing, Hertzog looks over to William and Typhor, beckoning them to come and help him finish the job. This foe had bought himself a few moments, nothing more.

    As Hertzog assaults the wounded Hellknight, Typhor murmurs a prayer for success, then gathers his concentration for a furious strike against the as-yet untouched foe. Despite his focus, the Armiger easily reacts in time, bringing up his shield to deflect Typhor's glaive.

    Cursing his luck, Typhor nevertheless manages a rousing call to Alainn. "You've had your chance to catch your breath, but there are foes yet to be slain, and we are clearly in further need of your assistance!"

    With magic and steel crashing around him, William regains his focus.

    As the Armiger raises his shield in a desperate attempt to block Typhor's glaive, William deftly slides to his flank. As he slides his longsword along a low arc, the air begins to rumble with a magical intensity. With a sharp thrust, he brings the charged blade down with violent precision, piercing the breastplate of the prone Armiger. The Armiger's death cry is drowned out by a boom of thunder, which reverberates through the bone and armor of the fallen Hellknight, causing the body to split and crack.

    As William withdraws his blade, motes of red and pink well up around him, buffering him for the next, inevitable assualt from the remaining Hellknights.

    William calmly turns to the Hellknight's comrade and silently traces a rune in the air. An electric red rune dances over the head of the nearest Armiger, daring him to neglect William's challenge.

    Hunting for Hellknights! Round 2.5

    While the battle surged on, the heroes never paid any heed to the other Hellknights. The one that trudged through the sewage water nods to his compatriot who was standing amongst the rebels.

    The soldier nods back.

    The Hellknight shifts toward Typhor, swinging his blade with a powerful momentum. Even with the magical rune dampining the blade's momentum, it still managed to pass through, wounding Typhor's one arm.

    Tyhpor grimaces, and cokc his head back at the Hellknight. "You think a blade will stop me?"

    Though the Hellknight's face was covered by his helmet, the Genasi could swear he felt a grin forming on the Armiger's mouth. "Not really," the Hellknight said matter-of-factly.

    Before Typhor could understand what the soldier meant, the Genasi felt a stab bahind his back, as he twisted his head, he saw the other Hellknight drive his blade straight through Typhor's armor, nearly covering the hilt.

    But the worst was yet to come. Typhor was so flabberghasted by the pincer maneuver, he didn't even see the other Officer making his way to the other side, unsheathe his corssbow, and fire a crossbow bolt. It flew right past the Warlord, almost hitting the Half-Orc.

    "Good work, Hertzog! These Hellknights look to have sloppy..." *THWUMP*

    The genasi croaked mid-sentence, his words sputtering and gurgling in his mouth. The rest of the heroes soon saw what had happened: A Hellknight crossbow bolt was wedged right in Typhor's neck, mere inches away from his windpipe...

    "Aim?", the Officer completed the sentence, a hint of satisfaction coming from that word, that he has downed one of the rebels.

    "The Leader has been removed from the battle." one of the Armigers reported to his superior.

    Initiative:
    Hertzog 22
    Typhor 15
    William 13
    Hellknight Armigers 13 average
    Armiger Officers 10 average
    Alainn 9
    Grokka 5

    (Since there's going to be a number of identical monsters, I decided to take the average of each monster’s initiative, just to help reduce the complexities of facing off more than 5 enemies in the initiative bar. )

    Here's how it goes: Allies/enemies take turns out of order in a group/block.

    Stats:
    (E10) Alainn HP 24/24
    (H13) Grokka HP 25/28
    --> Resist 5 damage until end of Grokka's next turn
    (H12) Hertzog HP 28/29 +4 THP
    (I15) Typhor HP 0/30 Dying!
    (H11) William HP 34/34 +5 THP

    The Bad:
    (I14) Hellknight Armiger #3 HP 40/40
    -->William's Aegis
    (I16) Hellknight Armiger #4 HP 40/40
    (N14) Armiger Officer #1 HP 23/37
    (N15) Armiger Officer #2 HP 37/37

    The Dead:
    (I16) Hellknight Armiger #2 HP -11/40 Regulated by Typhor
    (I12) Hellknight Armiger #1 HP -8/40 Thunderstruck by William

    Effects:
    Tactical Presence: +1 to attack when you use an action point
    Virtue of Valor +4 THP if you bloody or kill an enemy. Only happens once per round



    Monster Details:

    Hellknight1-1.png Hellknight Armiger: HP 40/40 AC 19; Fort 18, Reflex 14, Will 14, Speed 6; Vision: Normal
    Special:
    Hellknight Armor (Armiger):
    Hellknights are known and feared for their intimidating suits of armor. Armiger ranks gain a +1 bonus to AC (already added).


    Hellknight2-1.png Armiger Officer: HP 37/37 AC 17; Fort 14, Reflex 14, Will 14, Speed 5; Vision: Normal
    Special:
    Hellknight Armor (Armiger):
    Hellknights are known and feared for their intimidating suits of armor. Armiger ranks gain a +1 bonus to AC (already added).

    Combat Advantage:
    Armiger Officers deal 1d6 extra damage on melee and ranged attacks against any creature granting combat advantage to it.

    I posted the coordinates of everyone as well, making it easier to plan your attacks (Letter, then number).
    Another way to make it easier is to post what monster you hit e.g. Melee Basic attack on Hobgoblin grunt(F5)

    Features:
    Illumination: Typhor’s Sunglaived grants light in a 20 square radius (or to whatever radius Tyhpor demands). The area is treated as a normally lit and illuminated tunnel.

    Sewer Ditch: This tunnel’s ditch is filled up to knee-deep water. The water is calm though, so it isn’t treated as difficult terrain. However, the water itself is extremely filthy and hazardous to an injured PC’s health. Any BLOODIED PC wading through the water is subject to an endurance check of DC 15. A failed roll results in the PC infected with Filth Fever. Also, jumping down or up the ditch wall takes a full square of movement.

    Grokka watches as Typhor slumps into a watery pool on the sewer floor. "Pssst... Alainn, I think we know who the leader is." He spins on his heel and slashes at the offending Armiger with his massive steel blade. He roars out "He who wounds my friend and grins will not be standing when the battles end." as the blade comes crashing down and slices through the Armiger's pristine armor. "Typhor! Now's no time for the tide to wane, to your feet and bring the pain!"

    Seeing his friend fall victim to the brutal group tactics of the Hellknights spurs William into action.

    Using Grokka as cover, the Swordmage slips into a perfect position to unleash his powerful magics against both Hellknights. William slashes through the air with two long cuts that seem to slide mere inches from the chests of the two Armigers. However, as the sword slides by each target the air explodes in an arc of glowing red runes, which sear the Hellknights with arcane force.

    The runes continue to dance over their heads, threatening to inflict even more pain if they should fail to engage the Swordmage

    Hertzog leans in behind one of the Armigers, who turns to consider his new opponent. The half-orc's body is coiled tight, clearly ready to strike. With the revived warlord in front of him and a madly grinning Hertzog behind him, the Hellknight struggles to keep his attention on either opponent. Ready to take revenge for the wounds dealt to his friend, Hertzog whispers to the flanked Armiger:

    "Boo!"

    Typhor blinks a few times as his consciousness returns, thanks to Grokka's rousing tune. Taking advantage of the distraction created by William's flashy attack, he stands up quickly and thrusts his glaive at the Armiger next to Grokka. Typhor's strike finds a gap in the imposing armor of the Armiger, who begins bleeding profusely.

    "Thanks for the help, Grokka! I'll take care to ensure that your words aren't wasted." As Typhor speaks, his face loses some of its ashen pallor in favor of a healthy-looking blue-green.
