    The Page's confidence was growing as was his chagrin that he had them run initially, that along with the tactical error they had made earlier made him adamant to do better in the future. But he needed to focus on the present for the moment. Matching the rhythm of the demon, and mindful of how close Aphra was, the Page swung with an underhanded swipe.

    ooc: attack 1
    Longsword+3 (1d8+3, 19-20x2) +3 bonuses

    1d20(18)+6=24; dmg 1d8(3)+5=8

    Voltarus hoped there would be time later to see if any of this was magical but they needed to find more. The coffer peaked his interest that Jaem had found but there was more to look through. He moved past Jaem to the next box and just opened it. He didn't want anything to break after seeing the coffer.

    OOC: Move past Jaem to next box, move action to open it.

    The Page's blade swung true once again, but even as it sunk in he could feel the flesh and blubber resisting against his longsword. Though the strike had power behind it, he was surprised to see that it hadn't left much of a wound behind. Aphra followed him in tandem, striking high while he struck low. The devil roared in wordless fury as her elven curve blade sunk deep. But still it stood.

    Voltarus meanwhile carefully opened the next box. Most of the crate was filled with the same moldy straw as the others, but the middle of this one was lined with black velvet. Sitting on the velvet were two statues that looked to be made of pure silver. Though they sat motionless on their sides the young nobleman could almost swear there was life behind their eyes, just waiting to come out.

    OOC:
    The Page hits for 3 damage.

    Aphra attack:(14)+ 6=20. Hit.
    Damage:(8) + 4= 12. 7 damage.

    Just Jaem!

    Jaem leapfrogged around Voltarus and praised open the second to last crate with one of his short thrusting blades, inspecting the contents.

    OOC: Move to next crate and open it.

    Jaem quickly inspected one of the last crates. He saw a few vials that looked like potion bottles which could certainly be useful if they figured out what was in them. The rest of the crate was filled with a hodgepodge of mostly useless items: dirty, moth bitten clothes and old rations that seemed to have expired long ago.

    The devil continued its assault, lashing out with clawed limbs and roaring in fury. It proved itself to truly be the lowest of devil-kind, however, as it once again failed to land a single blow on the stalwart soldier of Iomedae.

    OOC:
    Devil #1 attacks the Page again.

    Claw:(5) +2= 7. Miss.
    Claw:(6) + 2= 8. Miss.

    Please put this sad devil out of its misery!

    A pang of sorry pierced the Page's heart as he monitored the movements of the devil. This thing was much more the tormented than the tormentor. Still, it had to be put down. He thrust his sword out, sure that the thing would feel its sting.

    Longsword+3 (1d8+3, 19-20x2) +3 bonuses
    1d20(19)+6=25 (confirm:1d20(8)+6=14); dmg 1d8(6)+5=11 plus whatever the card says if it is a confirmed crit

    The longsword of the Inheritor's warrior blazed with divine light as it struck deep in the fleshy mass that was the Lemure Devil. Dark blood gushed from the wound as it shrieked and howled. The blood ran down the stone floor into the fetid pool in the middle of the room until the creature was perfectly still on the floor, dead and practically drained of all blood. The only sounds were the drip-drop of blood of Prydewyld's and Aphra's blades and of the small river flowing into the pool.

    Rexus surveyed the room and used one hand to grip the other to stop it from shaking. "I...I think that's everything here," he said. He stared at the bodies of the devils for a long moment. "Thank the gods you came with me," he said, looking at Aphra and the Page. "Thank you. I would surely have died here, if I had even made it this far." He turned to the others. "That must be the item left by the former Silver Ravens. Anything interesting?"

    OOC:
    Elder's damage is enough to kill it, but for the record the crit was: Delayed wound, normal damage and target suffers bleed damage equal to the damage dealt. That would have bypassed DR, and taken it from full to dead in like one turn!

    Good job guys! Combat over. You can take a better look at all the loot in the room if you like.

    Jaem lifted out the heavy coffee and placed it on the floor. He stopped to collect the contents that the young nobleman had so carelessly flung all over the floor. The Tiefling laid the cloak, leather armor, and weapons beside the coffer. He fished out the vials filled with colorful liquids and the silver statues and deposited them carefully alongside the growing pile before opening the last crate.

    OOC: Just for the sake of convenience, we've found a suit of leather armor, a green cloak, a shiny mace, a bow, and hand crossbow, two silver statues (Figurines, maybe? Hmmm...), a few potions and a metal coffer.

    lets see what's in the last one. Someone other than me can detect magic, and I'll inspect the lock on the coffer after we get the contents of the last crate.

    Jaem opened the last final crate and saw another set of two gleaming silver raven statuettes. Beneath the velvet and straw that they rested on, he saw two leather bundles. He unrolled the first one to see a familiar a sight: a fairly common set of lockpicks and other tools for breaking and entering. The second one must have belonged to an actor, he guessed, as it had a collection of different make-up, fake hair, and other disguises.

    OOC:
    Last crate has two more ravens, a set of common theives tools, and a disguise kit (10 uses- +2 bonus on disguise checks).

    As they gathered all the items, Voltarus sank into his magic. He weaved a simple cantrip as he saw magic flood the room. He focused his will and began to concentrate on the items at hand. His knowledge of spellcraft and the arcana was extensive but even he had his limits at times.

    OOC: Cast detect magic. Concentrate for 3 rounds and start to try and identify anything that's magical...just gonna give spellcraft for all the things since we're not sure what is and isn't magical.

    Spellcraft checks: Green cloak 1d20(13)+8= 21, shiny mace 1d20(14)+8= 22, suit of leather armor 1d20(7)+8= 15, Bow 1d20(12)+8= 20, hand crossbow 1d20(12)+8= 20, iron coffer 1d20(14)+8= 22, potion #1 1d20(4)+8= 12, potion #218)+8= 26, potion #3(?) 1d20(10)+8= 18, Silver figurines #1 1d20(8)+8= 16, Silver figurines #2 1d20(17)+8= 25
