5.1 Ravoneth

Post Fri Mar 27, 2015 11:48 pm

The young adept is spun into a vortex of sight and sounds. Her being is spread bare, tested, tasted, examined and found acceptable. She is pulled apart molecule by molecule and reassembled into a whole.

She awakes laying naked upon a black altar surrounded by a hoard of gold and jewels. Above her hovers a massive beholder. 10' across and covered in ancient scales and scars it's central eye examines her. She will do, keep the males from her... she must be pure for the opening.

The beholder floats off as a contingent of guards take up position around her.

You didn't mention being restrained. Other than the naked part, she's free to go? :lol:

Come to think of it, I'll probably need more details before I turn this into a bloodsport. What's the room like? Any defensible positions? Any escape routes? How many guards? Who is in charge? He dies first. :twisted:

Ravoneth takes a quick looks around to get her bearings on what is going on. First thing she notices are her belongings laying in a pile at the foot of the alter, it seems the nudity was intended as a scare tactic. In looking farther out she sees that she is in a roughly 60x100 foot room that is well lit from the six massive lamps situated three on each side. Looking up she sees a large circular opening with an iron ladder bolted to the inner wall. There are six guards hanging out in the room with her. The guards are filthy and have a decided aroma about them, a mixture of cheap wine and unwashed bodies. Their armor is likewise dirty and unkempt. From here she can see no doors although there is a screening wall at the northern end that may well conceal an opening. Treasure lays scattered about the entire room in vast piles.

I'll try and get a map up and link it to my signature but I might be out of room for additional text.

The ladder goes to an exit?

I don't think you were involved in the initial find of that entrance to Undermountain (were you there when the companions hit the Herbalists House?) but yes it appears to lead up to an exit. The ladder is up off the floor of the cavern you are in..... maybe 10 feet from the floor so figure 8 feet if you leap for it from the piles of gold and things. Have you gotten dressed or are you still wandering around without?

I'm still on the altar, naked. I figure it's been only a few seconds as she looks about. I'm just trying to get an idea of my surroundings and how to escape. One of the nice aspects about playing a monk is total detachment from my belongings.

Monks have a bonus to leaping. Ravoneth's is +20'. I don't know how that maps to vertical leaps (rules say any leaping distance) but I'm guessing a 10' leap up isn't that difficult for her?

I was not involved in the initial find, so I have no idea what you're referring to. That's good because Ravoneth would have no idea either.

A few more questions:
- Guards are human? Do they look particularly tough or weak? I get the sense that they're cheap cannon fodder based on their description.
- How did the beholder depart?

You can easily make the leap to the ladder with your monk abilities. The guards look to be low ability human mercenaries hired for guarding a naked and weak female (in their opinion) but there are six of them... The Beholder departed around the screen wall to the north.
