Thread: Little Trouble in Big Zhaoge (G)

    Shun spent the entire journey drinking and ogling Hui, he only really started listening to things when an Inn was mentioned.
    "I agree with what'serface."

    Akaiji instantly offered to carry Hui's bags and carried them the entire way, of course. But once they reached the forest itself, he did not remain his normal irratic and irratic blabbering self at all. He just stared off into the wilderness. Silently. Blankly.

    Could he see something that their human eyes could not? If he did, it would have been as much of a blessing as a curse.

    He said nothing, and only followed, eyes ever open, pincers ever on the defensive.

    The group made their way through the spooky forest, heading for the inn. They had barely been travelling for ten minutes before the first ghosts made their presence known, appearing from the fog.

    Two were recent or strong enough to retain some link to their lives, appearing as ethereal Humans with distinct and recognizable features - no doubt what they looked like in life. The third, however, had given in further to the madness and torturous existance it now found itself in. It's body was indinstinct and lacked defining features, a single ghostly black mass with elongated fingers and an undefined lower-torso that terminated in a tail-like wisp. Its head crude imitation of a face, the vague ideas of eyes, nose, and a mouth on it, but nothing defined or recognizale - a child's drawing of a face.

    The two ghosts began drifting towards the group, moaning, while the lost spirit, shrieking wildly, did the same.



    INITAITIVE
    I want this moving so fast, so I won't be rolling initiative. The ghosts have low ass initaitive so the order will just be:
    The Player Characters in Whatever Order they post
    Hui
    Ghosts

    So, about the map. Most of the acronyms are, I think, self-explanatory. The big M is Meg, the little m is Myfanwy. The little gs are the more human-like Ghosts, while the big G is the more inhuman one; the Lost Spirit. You guys would all know enough about Ghosts to at least assume that the one that has lost sight of who and what it once was is probably more dangerous than the ones that still retain some memory and link to their lives.

    Black squares are trees, dense bushes, rocks, or other things that would be difficult to move through. You'd move at half-speed through them and would take a penalty if standing in them. Ghosts, obviously, ve no such problem.

    The ghosts aren't too tough, but can deal nasty damage. And, remember, all their attacks are touch attacks. Meaning that Akaiji suddenly isn't invincible anymore. Here are stats for your rolling expediecy:
    Ghosts: 36HP, 12AC
    Lost Spirits: 36HP, 13AC
    You may want to defeat them quickly before more show up. HINT HINT.

    EDIT: Remember - only magic weapons can hurt them.
    Akaiji: Your weapons are magic thanks to the oil you got from Hui. But your pincers obviously aren't.
    Ganzorig: I forget what the hell Ganzorig uses. But if the weapons are magic, they are fine.
    Myfanwy: Your Unarmed Strikes count as magic.
    Monks: Your Unarmed Strikes are magic as long as you have one or more ki points left - and it doesn't use up ki to hit them. You just need that point in reserve. Also your special techniques can work, but remember Ghosts have no anatomy and are immune to critical hits and anything anatomy dependant. And you can't grab them, either, so no grappling or shit. And anything you are holding isn't magic, so Shun can't use improvised weapons on them.

    Shun staggered his way over to the craziest ghost and swung a sloppy punch into it's face area.

    SPOILER! :
    Attack:1d20+10=28
    Damage:2d6+5=11

    Akaiji's movements were sharp, jittery; He was testing the attack distance of his foes.

    Only when he got into point blank range of the northward ghost, however, did he whip his sword out of the scabbard for a single-motion cut down lunge...

    SPOILER! :
    Attack roll;

    1d20+11=25

    Damage roll;

    1d10+7=17

    The ghost is down to 19 / 36 HP.



    The impact was certainly... something. A bit like watching bellows blow ashes out of a campfire.

    Meg leapt over to the even more non-humanish-than-the-other-ghosts ghost and smacked it with her fist.

    SPOILER! :
    attack: 1d20+12 = 21

    damage: 2d6+6 = 13

    Rushing over to the ghost nearest, Myfanwy threw her fist forward into the nearly immaterial creature. She hoped the punch did some damage.

    1d10+8=12

    SPOILER! :

    Ganzorig followed behind Myfanwy, and brought his guan dao down onto the ghost she attacked.

    SPOILER! :
    POWER ATTACK -10 to roll http://invisiblecastle.com/roller/view/3879940/ so +20 to damage


    damage = http://invisiblecastle.com/roller/view/3879950/ +20 = 36

    The ghost was now double dead.

    Yu went to punch the ghost Akaiji was fighting, but totally missed

    The ghost made an equallyinept attempt to hit Yu

    The Lost Spirit extended a withered hand as it swarmed about Shun and Megaera. As the spectral limb grasped at and into Shun he could feel it tearing away at his life force and his ki alike.

    "Um, I got healing potions here, if anyone needs!" Hui shouted out helpfully, still a little shaken up.

    Slowly, more ghosts materialized in from the Ether.

    Yu misses because Jai is awful!
    Shun takes 2 Damages!
    Shun takes 3 Wisdom damages!

    Hui readies an action! If anyone asks for a Cure Wounds potion she will toss them one! :O

    Right as one ghost died, another popped back up in it's place. "What the-?" Ganzorig flinched for a second, but then hopped forward and attacked. "Get out of here!!" He slashed the ghost twice, and on the second swing, the spook exploded with a roar of thunder.

    SPOILER! :


    Even though the ghost was destroyed, he did a third swing and almost fell over.
