He then moved back towards Astrea’s position. Malus moved away from the bubbling wall and went to prepare a lightning bolt spell but could not get a good line of sight on his quarry and so saved his magics for now Brave Ivanna readied her axe and charged the Orc berserker to the parties rear hitting with both of her strikes she did 30 damage, Bloodying him. Maisey fired her crossbow at Dragondog #1 and hit him for 7 damage Hamilton Mauls the Orc for 3 damage. Astrea fires two shots with longbow at DD#1 but her shots find no purchase on its tough hide.

DM- The black puddings continued to burrow there way thru the stone wall. The Orc Berserker and Cultist missed Ivanna and Hamilton with there attacks.

Turn 2

Larry launched himself back into the fray doing 6 points of damage to one DD and 10 points to the other and used his patient defense. Momentarily giving in to the rage of Grumsh inside him Mallus cast lighting bolt thru the melee in front of him doing 31 points of damage to Tiefling and the same amount to Raul! Raul started to swear to Mallus unintelligibly and the half-orc recovered himself and said “sorry”. Ivanna hit the berserker for another 17 points of damage. Maisey yelled a vicious mockery at the (WHDT) “hey girl scout if you sell enough cookies do you get fed to a dragon?” doing 4 psychic damage! and then with a word of healing word healed Raul 6 points. Hamilton galloped thru to where the black puddings were eating the wall. Astrea moved forward and unleashed her Chain-whips! Doing 18 points of damage to Dragondog #4 Raul leaped through the biting #DD2 doing 7 points of damage. Cade rained down “hellfire and brimstone” hitting DD#4 with both shots doing 16 damage, blowing its head clean off! DM- The two black puddings now with baby did a ton of damage to a wall section and were just about to break thru! The WHDT moved up and cast cone of cold hitting Larry, Maisy and Astrea and Raul Raul took 0 because he is immune to cold, Maisey past and took 16 points, Larry took 31 and Astrea failed, failed, failed spending all her hero points. Taking 31 points of damage. Astrea parried reducing the damage by 6 (down to 25). The Blue half-dragon dashed forward to get next to WHDT while the cultist re-positioned themselves. And all other attacks missed or did minimal damage. A cultist attacked a Kings-guard doing 14 points of damage. Pyrez cast scorching-ray on WHDT doing 12 damage. The Kings-guard used efficient teamwork dispatching the Orc berserker.


Turn 3

Larry changed targets and attacked the Blue half-dragon hitting once doing 8 damage and attacked again with flurry of blows but missed. Mallus was content to chill for a moment calmly contemplating the carnage around him. Ivanna having no more targets in front of her dashed towards where she could hear more combat happening… Maisey attempted to cast dissonant whispers on the Blue-half dragon but he passed his saving throw (with a 21) taking 6 psychic damage and did not run away. She then cast healing word On Larry for 7 healing. Hamilton readied himself for a feast with whatever was coming thru the wall. Astrea dashed away from danger putting some range between herself drawing her bow and used her second wind healing 19 hit points in the process. Raul unleashed his frost breath on WHDT and The Blue half dragon doing 11 points to blue and 2 points to WHDT.

Malus shuddered as the wall of stone spell fails and casts a spell on Hamilton… he poly-morphed everyone's favorite ham into a giant ape! He used a bonus action to cast a healing word on Raul bringing him back from unconscious to 6 points making amends for hitting him earlier with lightning Ivanna left the mighty ape to his own devices and decided she was needed up front. Maisey casts hold person on WHDT and it succeeded with help of a cutting words! Grape-ape (Hamilton) attacks BP#1 smashing into him with giant fists doing 20 points of bludgeoning damage.

Raul attacks BHD and bit him for 9 points of damage. Cade fires with his revolver at black pudding #2 for 18 damage DM- BHD was storming down on Maisey and attacked her with all 3 attacks!. Timely use of shield meant that only one of these great-sword attacks hit the diminutive bard. She took 18 points of damage but managed to maintain concentration on her hold person spell. WHDT then made his save against the hold person but lost his turn. One of the remaining dragon dogs attacked Larry but missed Black puddings maneuvered and Hamilton got an AoO on baby I taking one point of acid damage in the process.

Cade set the room the black puddings were in on fire! DM- The BHD heading for the magic portal grew wings from his back and escaped thru the portal (disengage) much to the frustration of Ivanna. The Black puddings moved thru the room taking 5 fire damage a piece Black pudding #3 moved away from Cade provoking a AoO in the process, Cade hit him with a tomahawk splitting part of the black monstrosity's off and forming another black pudding (#4!)
