    Always a good call to have an NPC healbot along for the ride!

    Sharn thanks Thana for her help. Then he turns deadly sober and says that she is talking crazy. They'll find the truth out soon enough, but if it is true, of course he'll be around for the kid, but there ain't no way some high-toned woman gonna boss him around! Sharn is as free as a bird now, and this bird you cannot cage.

    Heal Self:
    7+16=23... 1d6+2 wounds restored=5+2=7

    Uh, since it costs 2 Vit, but Sharn has none left, does it costs 2 wound? Kind of whack if that is so.

    Yeah, she was hiding down in the canyon during the last fight, so not around to heal.

    whit10 wrote:wow, I just re-read that skill description and that's just silly.  It costs you health to heal yourself?  WTF?

    Read the cost line of the chart - it costs 0 vitality to restore vitality.  Vitality does not equal health\hit points, once you stop thinking about it like D&D\PF it will help you.  Vitality is energy.

    It does cost you energy to actually heal your wounds.  This makes total sense to me.  

    However, if you are out of vitality, you can power your abilities with your actual life-force (health).  In other words, you can stay at 2 wound points and heal a larger amount of vitality for free (1d8+4 with a roll of 23) or you can spend Wound points to heal wound points, yes.  Instead of healing 7, you would gain a net total of 5 and still be wounded.  Honestly adding 1d8+4 vitality is probably a better choice, since you could then use other Force powers.  You still have the Wounded penalty at 2 or 7.

    Your choice, just note it when you decide.

    Moving on....

Sharn is as free as a bird now, and this bird you cannot cage.

    Sharn's statements to Thana makes her smile.  Sharn watches in amazement as Thana's blue skin and doctor jacket wash off her, like so much paint.  Thana's face is the same and the look in her eyes is just as intense, but Sharn now sees a Twilek with deep red skin and tribal looking black tattoos on her head-tails.

    This is a good image of Thana's appearance and clothing


    Thana replies to her Wookie lover, "Good, mighty Sharn.  I can feel your passion and you love of freedom.  But first.... no more nice missTwilek"

    Thana moves towards the possessed Tuskbeast, drawing both 2 light-weapons.  She wields a light-whip in one hand and a strange looking lightsaber in the other.  The lightwhip glows red, but the lightsaber looks like she is holding a UV blacklight in her other hand.  She lashes the tuskbeast with her lightwhip, searing deep burns into its leg.

    Thana looks more like the above image, but this one had the whip  Cool

    I had a feeling Thana was a badass! Lightwhip huh? I think Sharn wants a light-cat-o'-nine-tails.


    Have to agree with Josh. Paying wound points to heal wounds is just bad design, IMHO, but I will abide by the RAW.

    I agree, you really shouldn't be doing that, you should be paying vitality to heal wounds, which was the intention. This is just an awkward collision between a specific skill and a house rule about using Wound points when you have no vitality. Just do the 0 cost vitality heal, if you don't like the rule and avoid the issue.

    Rakhu will have heroic surge to draw his blaster pistol.

    If on the outside he will target the eyes, face, and temples area.
    If inside he will target soft pallett and/or larynx.

    Nicely done! You damage is consistently impressive for a shooter.

    Rakhu drops his rotary and blasts the possessed Tuskbeast about the face and eyes with his blaster. The beast howls in pain and grinds Rakhu between his teeth (no damage, just painful). The creature is now definitely into Wounds!

    Being swallowed whole is still just "grappled" plus you take bite damage every round for fun.  So -2 attack rolls, -4 dex, cannot move, etc etc

    Daxx will take bite damage again, if he stays inside.

    The first attack is a miss. The Tuskbeast is already into wounds, so a crit doesn't matter at this point. He takes 19 to the wounds. More importantly for Daxx, Daxx did more than 10% of his remaining hit points in damage and is able to cut himself loose.

    To observers, a glowing blade piercing the gut of the Tuskbeast from the inside. Like a reverse surgery, it slices open a gash and Daxx plops out, covered in stomach acid, bile and bits of Rakhu that are only partially chewed. Daxx drops to the ground, reflex save DC 12 to avoid 1d6 fall damage  Twisted Evil  (yeah, that was just being mean).

    Since the beast can no longer swallow Rakhu, he will simply chew him for flavor. It makes a full round attack, 1 bite\chew and 2 tusks against Daxx.

    Bite
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +11" :

    17 + 11 = 28

    crunch crunch on Rakhu

    Result of the throw of dice "4d8 +7" :

    2 + 4 + 2 + 1 + 7 = 16


    Tusk 1 at Daxx
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +9" :

    14 + 9 = 23

    Tusk 2 at Daxx
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +9" :

    6 + 9 = 15

    What is Daxx's DC now? I know it is base 20 with lightsaber, but I think you have an EA going too

    For the rest....  the Tuskbeast is staggering and clearly on it's last gasps.   It has taken multiple blaster shots, lightsaber hits, whip lashes and has now been eviscerated from the inside out.

    the party is pushing 200 total damage on it  cheers

    T'son sprints inside the Sith Temple.  He runs up the steps and into the interior great chamber.  He sees the following



    There are a few Nikto milling about, sweeping, etc.  They pay no attention to T'son.   The skirt around the main statue is actually open, as if the sides of the skirt are massive doors.  Inside the skirt T'son sees the following:



    The figure inside the crystal is the dessicated corpse of the long dead Sith King, known as Marcus Ragnar.  T'son can still see the massive crown, resting atop his skull.  He is still wearing his full armor, just as the Ghost was.



    The crystal looks to be of the same dark purple style that you have found all over Kintan.  This one is particularly dark. The corpse inside the crystal is clearly the hub of the entire dark-side force network.

    crit confirm: 7+17=24
    damage: 7+4+3=14 (direct to wounds if it's a crit).

    Does he still have a move action? Then activate forcefield.

    The nearly dead Wookie raises a mighty paw and smashes the Tuskbeast right between the eyes!  The creature staggers and then crashes to the cave floor in a heap.  Rakhu bounces out of the beast's maw without further injury.

    Irwin chirps, "Crickey boss, nice punch!  The whole galaxy will see that one in high def."

    A ghostly glow forms around the body of the tuskbeast.  The spirit of Marcus Ragnar endures!  The spectral visage of the long-dead Sith King rises from the corpse of the tuskbeast.

     

    It is not fully formed, but will be so on it's next turn.

    Thana calls out, "Beware, the Sith Ghost is not defeated.  Daxx, take this blade, I crafted it out of an alchemically treated crystal.  It's.... frequency should match the Ghost's vibration."  Thana uses the force to float over the Blacklight lightsaber, it hovers with easy reach of Daxx.  Thana also uses another Force ability, Daxx recognizes the application as a variation of Force Defense.

    It looks like this

    Rodians have carried over their ancient tribal beliefs about ghosts. Ghosts are restless spirits that are somehow tied to this world because of grief, anger, unfulfilled desires, etc. and not able to pass on to the Happy Hunting Grounds of the afterlife. Most modern Rodians don't give ghosts a second thought.

    I am assuming that I can grab the saber as a free action?

    If not, Heal Self for sure and then a move action to follow T'son if the grabbing the saber is a free action, Daxx is finished after the Heal if not.

    Heal Self:

    Roll(1d20)+7:
    13,+7
    Total:20
    1d8+2 Vitality

    Roll(1d8)+2:
    7,+2

    Yeah, I figure it is less than drawing a sheathed wpn, so it would be free.   T'son did a full run straight into the temple, so looking at the combat map, Daxx would be moving 5 hexes and would not have gone as far as T'son.

    Move Object, just saying, can float you x4 your force user level or 24m which is 12hexes as a move action.  Or Burst of Speed.

    map update



    The spectre of the long dead Sith King Marcus Ragnar fully rises out of the corpse of the tuskbeast.  Force lightning crackles all around him.  (nevermind the skeletons)




    Daxx chases off after T'son with the blacklight sabre in his hand.

    Marcus Ragnar's voice haunts the massive cavern of the geode, as if the sound is coming from all directions.  "Ahhh... finally.... a worthy host has appeared.  Who among you shall serve as my vessel?"

    *Frightful Presence* free action.  Will save DC 22 or be shaken
    Like the library ghost in Ghostbusters, the ghost of Marcus Ragnar becomes a terrifying visage as it lunges towards Rakhu, Sharn and Thana.  An aura of lightning crackles all around the ghost of Marcus Ragnar, which touches all 3 nearby party members.  The lightning acts like a conduit for the ghost to attempt to possess the bodies of Rakhu, Sharn and Thana.

    As his full round action, the ghost of Marcus Ragnar will attempt to possess one of the 3 in front of him.  Rakhu, Sharn and Thana all need Will saves, but roll the Frightful Presence first, since failure there is a -2 to save debuff.

    Yes, it will be T'son's turn, but I am still waiting on Sharn's roll and then I will reveal Thana's as well.

    Rakhu dashes past Daxx and arrives near T'son (within a couple hexes, figuring different starting points).  But just to be clear, Josh is right, it is just shaken, not panicked, so only -2 to all rolls, you are not compelled to flee, but it is cool if you are doing it in character anyways.  I would run as fast as my flat feet would carry me.

    ALSO -

    I invited my cousin Dan to join our little gaming community. He lost touch with his gaming group last year and is looking to get back into play. Majority of his experince is with 2nd ED DnD, but I am certain he'll pick up new systems easliy because he's a sharp guy. Expect him to be lurking around soon!

    GREAT! He is welcome to read the end of the adventure here. Will he be starting with your mythic epic?

    nice saves! No, currently the dark purple crystals only enhance 'projection' of Force powers, not resistance to the Force. (more on that later  Wink  )

    Thana does not appear shaken, nor possessed. (and the Sith Ghost is still present, so that's a dead giveaway) tongue

    Grenade launcher attack against a space imediately adajcent to the crystal/mummy holder =

    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +4" :

    13 + 4 = 17

    Dmg if hits =

    Result of the throw of dice "4d6" :

    Sorry that wasn't clear.  If you look at the image of the temple interior, in my mind T'son was in the central chamber, near the statue base with the crystal and body.

    The grenade lands at the foot of the statue.  Shards of crystal explode and fly throughout the temple interior.



    The body of Marcus Ragnar remains floating in the same position.  The Force conduit is now clearly visible (without See Force) connecting the corpse to the Ghost outside.

    Everyone, inside and outside, notice that immediately after the crystal explodes, the crystal artifacts that all the Nikto are carrying suddenly go dark, as if dormant.   study The Nikto are joining initiative  study 

    The Nikto remain passive but begin walking slowly, deliberately towards the central temple area.  A low chanting, as if from a rite or funeral procession fills the geode. They stare at the Ghost in awe and wonder.  They are coming to bear witness by the thousands.

    The party senses no threat from the Nikto masses.

    anyway, move to the ghost and attack with the weird lightsaber?

    No penalties on Daxx. But Daxx did move inside the temple last turn, 1 move action. So you would have to move back to the ghost and then make 1 attack, if that is what you want to do.

    This needs to be Daxx's decision, I am not trying to influence you either way. Let me just make sure everything gets stated in 1 place, so you can think about your action carefully.

    Thana gave Daxx the blacklight Lightsaber when she saw the ghost rising out of the body, which was dead, so the ghost was no longer possessing the tuskbeast. The ghost is now free floating, very scary and trying to possess the nearest body to be a host (Sharn and Thana, since everyone else ran inside).

    T'son was the first person inside the temple, no one knew there was a corpse in a crystal inside, presumably including Thana. T'son just broke the crystal that was surrounding the corpse. Daxx can now see a clear Force energy conduit emanating from the corpse to the ghost.

    Daxx would be 1 move from either the ghost (going back outside) or the corpse at the base of the statue (continuing inside).

    Does that help? Feel free to ask for further clarification
