    With his enemies finally taking note of him, B'auw decides to get right in the mess of things and jumps into the crowd of monsters, flailing his claws at everyone around him. Blood and zombie tissue starts flying up into the air.

    Shuffling through the remains of the dead rat, the second zombie lunges at B'auw, grasping him with unnatural strength. The other zombie attempts to do the same thing to Kava, and succeeds.

    The last remaining rat bites at B'auw, but can't pierce his armor.

    Next turn: Danarous

    Seeing the zombies latch onto his companions Danarous focuses on an area just behind the enemies and once again with a single word a slick black flame erupts from the ground falling on the creatures’ backs. The Rat and Zombie gripping Kava are reduced to an unnatural pile of smoldering ash. While the zombie clinging to B'auw has nearly all the flesh on its back incinerated.

    Lilliana's hands crackle with black electricity as she tries to end the "life" of this poor wretch. With a surge of speed, she looses two bolts of dark energy at the creature. The blasts take their toll, but the undead stays on its feet.

    Edit- Okay, since I goofed and Kava is free, we'll try something different...

    Drawing in a deep breath, Kava roars a jet of fire, covering a good chunk of the room, and scorching the zombie grasping B'auw in the process.

    With a roar Kava rips out of the zombies grip, then turns and faces it.

    Unless I'm misreading what's what, Z1, the one holding Kava, is dead and the one holding B’auw (the one I just nearly melted) is almost dead.

    That's correct. I can see how it might be a little confusing since they criss-crossed. SG, you can edit your post to change Kava's action.

    I can also see that I need to ramp up the difficulty of these encounters. You guys roll like nobody's business.

    With one last burst of fire, your enemies are reduced to little more than charred flesh and bone. It certainly doesn't help the smell, that's for sure.

    B'auw stands still for a moment.. nothing but charred flesh remaining.. including half a torso of a burning zombie on his back.. He picks his arm off of his shoulder and lets the thing drop to the floor, making a disgusted face.

    Nodding at everyone with a slight smile, the gnoll observes the floor, kicking bodies aside, seeing if there's anything worthwhile.

    Perception check. B'auw searches the room, kicking open crates, whatnought.

    Now that the action is over Danarous once gain grasps one of his medallions, concentrates, and when his eyes open they return to their golden color. He makes his way to the center of the room and concentrates on picking out any magical energies in the room.

    B'auw: Your keen senses detect a peculiar odor coming from the center of the room. You look closer and notice that the floor is worn down here more than everywhere else. Through the various cracks and holes in the floorboards you see a pit, probably about 8 feet deep. It smells absolutely horrid, even for you.

    Just as Danarous is about to step onto one of the rotten floorboards you stop him, informing him gruffly that he was about to fall into a trap.
    Spoiler:

    Danarous: Perhaps it's because you already know what you're looking for, or perhaps it's because you're getting closer to the source. Whatever the reason, the magic energies in the room reveal themselves to you as plain as writing on parchment.

    You detect the same latent necrotic energy as you did in the dining hall. But now you see that the energy is in a much more defined pattern than you previously though. There is clearly a ritual being worked here, dark and ancient, and someone is performing it right now.

    But that isn't all. Among the dark magic flowing through this place you see a different kind of energy, something not of this world. It's shape and flow are entirely foreign to your understanding of how magic works. It seems vaguely demonic, though in all your time in the Order you've never seen anything like it.

    Danarous lost in thought is surprised by the gnolls sudden intervention. Upon regaining his focus he thanks the gnoll and relays what he has discovered.


    Thank you B’auw. I fear I was lost in thought.

    My friends I have felt something very dire. There is some sort of ritual being performed here and it is yielding something unlike anything I have encountered. We would do well to make haste and stop this before it progresses to a point that we will no longer be able to contain.

    Your party looks over the room thoroughly, finding nothing of value. Dead rats, burnt corpses, and rotten food create a stench that none of you are sorry to leave.

    Back in the hallway, your progress north meets the other door that you investigated earlier.

    B'auw looks it over carefully and presses his ear to it to see if his acute hearing can pick anything up.. Though realistically anything aware of its surroundings would've heard the racket they created.

    It's very faint, but you think you might hear something on the other side. It's some kind of liquid sound, like bubbling water. It's infrequent, but you're fairly certain it's there. It's no wonder you missed it before.

    He looks back over his shoulder at the rest of the party and motions them forward with his bloody paw...

    B'auw tries to open the door as quietly and carefully as possible, sneaking a peek at what could possibly be in the room, sticking his head in..

    You position yourself in front of the door, crouched low, lifting the door's weight slightly so that the hinges won't squeak. You silently open it an inch, almost two, when suddenly the floor buckles and the door falls off the frame, taking you with it.

    You land with a resounding thud on hard stone and look up to see that the floor here has been eaten away, creating the pit that you're now in. You don't see any way to easily climb out, but you do see what caused the predicament you're in. On the other side of the pit is a bubbling mass of orange-brown goo, nearly ten feet in diameter, currently occupied with dissolving the remains of a dead sailor. Although it doesn't have eyes, you get the distinct impression that it's looking right at you.

    Watching the gnoll fall face first off the edge Danarous quickly retraces the symbol he drew earlier on his wrist and his eyes switch back to a deep red color.

    He thinks: Despite the strain I think I might have to maintain my readiness from here out.

    Round 1
    Spoiler:

    Not even a master thief could have prevented the noise made by B'auw falling into the pit. If there's anything alive nearby, it probably heard it. You have no time to waste thinking about that though, as B'auw is now trapped in a pit with a bubbling, very deadly-looking ooze.

    Next turn: Ahilgen

    It would be possibly to tie off a rope somewhere on the side and drop it down. There aren't any spots made just for it though. Setting up the rope would be a standard action.

    You can stay in J4, and you would have line of sight/effect into the pit from there.

    Ahilgen can't see B'auw from his vantage point in the hallway, but he can see the top of the semi-viscous mass threatening him. The noise and adrenaline from B'auw's fall into the pit forces Ahilgen to lose his focus for a moment. In that moment, whichever powers that vie for control over his abilities get the better of him. His feet rise off the ground and he flies through the air and over the pit, landing on the edge above the jelly. Ahilgen's eyes darken over and guttural speech comes from deep within his throat.

    E'thok narhul nar'gah turook kthur, Vecna

    Ewan's mouth opens wide and a dark bolt fires from it. When the bolt comes into contact with the jelly it disperses into a cloud, consuming nearly the entire pit and continues to thicken for a few seconds. It envelops B'auw, and becoms so thick that he has no choice but to breathe it in. Ewan doubles over, spitting out nonsense for a few seconds then bolts upright and speaks again in demontongue.

    Drek f'kuh B'jul

    Ahilgen raises both arms towards the jelly and mystical energy gathers between them, reaching critical mass and finally releasing towards it. Just as the ball of energy reaches the jelly, a hole opens in its middle and the energy passes through it, hitting the wall on the far side and dispersing into shadow.

    Ahilgen falls to his knees and mumbles loudly in gutterspeak.

    I don't have any problem with the flavor or your curse. But the Ochre Jelly isn't undead, so you can't turn it. Go ahead and edit your post since I'm sure you don't want to brandish your (un)holy symbol at it for nothing. If that changes your subsequent actions, you can edit those also.

    Durrr.

    Ok, I kept the same to-hit roll because the Jelly's Will and Ref are the same, and I re-rolled damage. B'auw will gain +2 to his attack rolls until the end of my turn, and everything else should stay the same (Jelly does not move, nor is immobilized.)

    Reacting without thought Kava slides down the pit edge, then in a burst of action drives towards the creature and buries her sword deep inside it, stifling it's movement for a time.
