    Glad to see max back up. Listening to Max talk about team effort. That is true, we will over come all obstacles set before us. He stops at the archway looking over the bodies then to the ceiling to see if anything lies above to attack. Gil will use his night vision if possible to search the whole room.

    Inside the ruins of 'Skullcap'; somewhere in the swampy plains south and east of 'Hopeful Vale' somewhere in the Kharolis Mountains south of Pax Tharkas, Mid Morning of 14 Hiddumont (October), 351 AC




    Maxavel cast her 'Find Traps' spell and had started to scan the room in front of her, with no traps being outlined by the magic when Valentheran and Thorn slipped into the room...


    As they slipped into the room, suddenly a massive 5 headed Hydra made out of metal shimmered into existence....or perhaps suddenly became visible...and its 3 functioning heads sprang into action....

    One of the heads lifted towards the ceiling and let loose a bone-chilling, blood-curdling roar that washed over the party like a wave. Due perhaps to the fact that they had been up close and personal with several REAL LIVE Dragons before, none of the companions panicked, but all felt the effects nonetheless....

    Another head lunged down and clamped itself around Vale's torso, it's mechanical mouth full of foot-long 'teeth' piercing his clothes and flesh and leaving terrible bloody wounds that drew forth a shrill scream of agony from the Elven Mage-Thief before it released its terrible grip and tossed him to the ground*....

    The last functioning head opened wide and belched forth a ball of flame that enveloped Thorn and forced the veteran Dwarven warrior to the ground, hissing in pain as cloth, flesh and hair burned and he instinctively rolled to put the simmering flames out even as he spasm-ed in terrible pain**...

    The rest of the party had been completely stunned by the unexpected sight of an Invisible, Dragon-sized mechanical construct suddenly coming out of nowhere and attacking their fellows....The Hydra's main body was perhaps 20 feet long or so and perhaps 8 or 9 feet high at the 'shoulders' of its 4 thick metal 'legs'. A 10 or 12 foot long mechanical 'tail' trailed behind it and its five heads were on 10 foot long 'necks'; with 2 of the heads clearly not functioning. One had a combination of pock-marks, as if drilled by stones or hit with some kind of club or staff and a few small puncture and slash marks that could've been made by a small blade. The other non-functioning head looked as if it had been blasted by numerous bolts of energy; perhaps like those made by Magic Missiles....


    *Vale was hit for 11 points of damage; he is currently at 3 of 22 HP
    **Thorn was hit for 22 points of damage (I failed your Saving Throw....even with all the Dwarf bonuses...SORRY MAN!); he is at 18 of 40 HP

    Rolling onto his back in obvious pain, Vale manages to keep enough of his wits about him to remember the words of magic needed to fight back. Reaching out his hand towards the creature he speaks clearly and forcefully and bolts of energy fly from his fingertips in the direction of the mechanical monstrosity.

    Gilthanias draws his weapon and charges forward attacking one of the necks of the Hydra that still are functioning.

    Thorn charges in smoking beard and all even in pain at the monster swinging his enchanted weapon at the monstrosity."Yah know how long it took me ta grow that beard yer gonna pay fer that!" the dwarf yells at the beast.

    "Crap! Crap, crap crap!" Max drops her traps spell, and prays for her god to shield her against fire.
    "Hold on Vale! I'll be right there."

    Winces as the metal beast roars. There goes more hesring, he thinks to himself. He is more shocked as his hot blooded companions lunge forward towards what he views as certain death. "You fools! Have you no sense at all? Fall back! Some fights you can't win!" he feels his heart sink as Thorn and Vale are quickly taken down. He looks around quickly, trying to find a way to get his friends away or buy some time for them. He'll eye the creature, the room around him and try to get a look st what is directly behind him. As he does, he will ask Max "just how good is that prayer of yours going to work? You? Me? Or all of us?"

    Max hears Rough's question, and responds "Just me! I'm going to pull him out! I don't really know how well it works, never tested it like this!"
