Shandra

As Shandra strike as the goes to dodge anything the ant might do she suddenly remembers her dagger. In this case the club and the dagger could be weiled seperately. She is ashamed that she let down her sensei's by not thinkuing clearly.

She immedialtely takes stock of what she is carrying and what is standing by should she need it. There were the javelins, but she did not wan to use them all up in the first fight.

She keep in mind the staff and contemplates were best she could use a wall of thorns, if at all, for Ants wore their skeletons on the outside. It was unfortunate that ants had multifaceted eyes, otherwise the sand of the arena would have proved useful. She would keep that in mind for later.

Hearing Amberlyn advice she moves to close with the paladin and will try to get back to back with her, as best as possible, but will not expose herself to attacks of opportunity by doing so.

Shandra now tries to set up for a two weapon attack, using the club and then the dagger.

Amberlyn

Faced with eminent melee with one of the giant worker ants right is front of her, Amberlyn quickly draws herlong sword into her right hand, and brings it out swinging. She uses her full force to do as much damage as she can.

"Close up people don't let those ants in between us." Amberlyyn dug is deep into her inner resources, notjust her training and strength but also into her mental and spirtual resources as well.
The hard part was realizing theat not onely did they have to survive all of these ants but there was more to come.

"Light I will do my best to prove to these people that your we who worship you are good, I will not fail to do my best for you, my party and myself." She would be a living testament to her knightly Coad of Conduct. Light grant her the strength to prevail,

Knights of the Light were Brave, Knights of the Light were loyal, Knights of the lIght were.... and so she went on in her mind as she went through all twelve of the Codes she hadd sworn to obey.

Beware the Twitching Ants!

Ollie Gory had borne witness to many battles in the Dark Arena over the years, but now he slowly began to realize that there was something a bit different about this one!

Subtle reminders began gnawing at his conscious mind of past rare similarities to another "Death Sentence" type of battle that had transpired when he and ThunnGarr had first begun their Dark Arena incarceration together!

As he surveyed the carnage of battle and the sounds of agony and victory mixed with the incessant roar of the Dark Arena crowd, the Half-Orc Bard became aware of a strange humming sound from the top of the Dark Arena dome that he had all but forgotten!

Looking up, he discovered the faint traces of an eerie golden-reddish glow that had moments before begun emanating from the top of the dome!

Ollie Gory suddenly realized the meaning of what was subtly transpiring!

"BEWARE THE TWITCHING ANTS!" he shouted for all the gladiators to hear his warning as he selected 2 more Arrows to do his small part to help eliminate the unexpected danger!

"THEY MUST ALL DIE!"

South End Ants Attack Turn 1 Combat Round 4

Present Day

ThunnGarr was more fortunate this time as three of the Giant Ants among those surrounding the Giant Dwarf [2 row 4, 5 row 2 and 3 row 2] lay twitcing in the Dark Arena sands, but unable to arise and strike!

More importantly, Ants 1 row 4, 3 row 3 and 4 row 2 missed ThunnGarr completely, while his Shield of Bashing barely withstood the attack of Ant 3 row 4, but Ant 4 row 4 on his right side managed to sink a deep bite into his unprotected right leg for near maximum damage!

ThunnGarr merely grunted as he shook the attacker from his leg while surveying the sands of battle to see how his teammates were faring.

Off in the distance to his left he saw Bumble Brew staring down at Ant 1 row 3 that lay twitching in the Dark Arena sands. She was safe for the moment as an unexpected newcomer in the form of a Wolverine was clinging to the back of Ant 1 row 2 as it tried to shake the Wolverine off to no avail and was unable to bite the clinging creature!

The Giant Dwarf swiftly realized that Cunning Fox and Sir Yder were in no immediate danger as Ant 1 row 5 lay twitcing in the Dark Arena sands in front of the Knight; while Ullrich managed to avoid the bite of Ant 2 row 3 as Ant 2 row 2 lay between Sir Yder and Ullrich also mysteriously twitching in the Dark Arena sands!

ThunnGarr then looked to his far right and beheld Ariane the Paladin withstand the lunging bite of Ant 5 row 4 as its mandibles were unable to penetrate her armor!

She seemed oblivious to the fact in the heat of battle that Ant 4 row 3 had totally missed her as it tried to maneuver itself for a tasty bite!

Amberlyn stood her ground confident in The Light as Ant 2 row 5 broke through her defenses to launch a vicious attack against her, but her Armor proved to be more than ample to keep the Knight of The Light from harm!

Shandra proved to be too much of a moving target for Ant 3 row 5 as it completely missed the Monk, but Ant 4 row 5 managed to nip her left leg with a third of its potential damage dealing ability!

The Monk drew more inspiration from The Light as she determined which Ant to counter attack to make her opponents pay for her few drops of blood that dotted the Dark Arena sands!

As the Giant Dwarf turned his gaze back to his immediate opponents that surrounded him, ThunnGarr the Mighty noticed Ants 1, 2 and 3 from row 1 twitching with new life!

However, Ants 4 and 5 from row 1 were beyond reviving!


Shandra lost 2hp and has 10 remaining, while ThunnGarr lost 5hp and has 46 remaining!

Choose Your Counter Attacks and Remember the Twitching Ants and the Warning from Ollie Gory!

West End Clerics in Peril Turn 1 Combat Round 4


Roxas Isla
City of Nefaria
Dark Arena
Emancipation Sand Dance
First Wave
Present Day

The West End Gnome Clerics stood their ground as the Giant Worker Ants methodically resumed their plan of attack without deviation!

Ants 1 and 2 from row 2 were unable to bite Cleric #1 as he jumped away from them and Ant 1 from row 3 also missed as the Cleric jumped to his right, but Ant 2 from row 3 timed its attack in a harmonious rhythm attuned to the anticipated movement of the Cleric with a successful near perfect damage dealing bite that sunk into his right leg!

Cleric #2 was unable to elude Ants 1 and 2 from row 4 as they both inflicted near perfect damage dealing bites on both of his legs!

Ant 1 from row 5 mysteriously stopped in its tracks as the Cleric stared at this foe as he tried to hobble to a safer location! For some unknown reason the Ant just stood still as if in a trance! [This Ant will not be able to attack until Combat Round 6 as a result of a Fumble!]

But while the Cleric smiled at his unexpected good fortune, Ant 3 from row 4 took full advantage as it attacked from the Right Side and sunk its mandibles with the full force of its damage dealing ability into the Cleric’s right arm!

Cleric #3 was bitten on his left shin by Ant 2 from row 5 with a third of its damage dealing ability, but was able to elude Ant 3 from row 5 as he jumped out of harms way!

The remaining Giant Ants continued to ignore Clerics #4, #5 and #6 as they pressed their attacks against Clerics #7 and #8, who both avoided their foes with apparent ease!

Armed with a Club, Cleric #1 ignored the pain in his leg as he instinctively swung with two-thirds damage dealing force as his weapon slammed into Ant 1 from row 3, weakening his advancing foe!

Cleric #2 was only able to inflict the minimum damage dealing ability against Ant 2 from row 4 as his Club bounced off an appendage with a painful glancing blow!

Ant 3 from row 5 suffered only a third of the damage dealing ability from Cleric #3 as he swung his Club into the Giant Ant’s face!

In an effort to assist his Copper Cavern brother, Cleric #4 chose to swing his Club unhindered against the left side of Ant 3 from row 5 with surprisingly maximum damage dealing ability!

This Ant wobbled under the force of the blow! But managed to remain conscious!

Choosing to fire another Arrow against Ant 5 from row 1, Cleric #5 benefitted from not being attacked as his Arrow nearly scored maximum damage dealing ability!

This Ant was the first to become Unconscious with Grievous Wounds from a Cleric!

But almost immediately it began twitching as new life was somehow seeking to revive its inert body!

Armed with their Clubs, Clerics #6 and #7 simultaneously struck the top of the heads of Ant 4 row 5 and Ant 4 row 4 with maximum damage dealing force!

Swinging his Club at Ant 3 from row 3 that stood directly in front of Cleric #8, the semi-satisfying sound of half the damage dealing potential inflicted upon the face of the Giant Ant sparked the slim hope that the Clerics would somehow survive the peril of the Giant Ants!


10 of the Giant Ants attacking the Clerics have not suffered any damage! Only 1 Giant Ant is Unconscious with Grievous Wounds! But it has begun twitching!

The Halfling Monks had succeeded in neutralizing the first row of Giant Ants, but their surviving opponents were now collectively enraged and proceeded to retaliate!

Fortunately for Monk #1 Ants 1 row 2, 2 row 2, 1 row 3, 2 row 3 and 3 row 3 were a bit slower than he was as he contorted his body and evaded their bites!

Monk #2 was not so fortunate as Ant 1 row 4 nipped his left ankle while Ant 2 row 4 managed to do some massive damage as he lost his balance and his foe tore a jagged gash in his left arm and shoulder!

Regaining his poise he was able to elude Ant 2 row 4 and block out the pain in the process!

Monk #3 eluded Ants 1 and 2 from row 5 and Monk #4 was totally ignored by any of his opponents!

Monk #5 also eluded Ants 3 and 5 from row 5, but Ant 4 row 5 bit his left forearm, dealing maximum damage!

Monk #6 suffered a minimum damage bite, but Ant 4 row 4 managed to rip a small tear in his right forearm as he dodged Ant 5 row 4 to set himself to counter attack his foes!

Ants 4 and 5 from row 3 were unable to bite Monk #7, but Monk #8 evaded Ant 4 row 3, only to suffer a rip in his left thigh from Ant 3 row 2 as Ant 5 row 2 bit his right arm with two thirds potential damage dealing!

Grabbing their Clubs and Hand Axes, the Halfling Monks set themselves to even the odds a bit better!

Monk #1 retaliated against Ant 1 row 3 and the combination of both weapons striking its head caused his foe to fall Unconscious to the Dark Arena sands!

The combination of blows by Monk #2 against Ant 1 row 4 caused his foe to wobble, but still had enough life remaining to remain standing in front of him defiantly!

Monk #3 had the same result against Ant 1 row 5, although his foe nearly lost consciousness!

Monk #4 did not do quite as well against Ant 3 row 5, but his foe staggered under the force of the blows!

Monk #5 did as well as his brother Monk #2 against Ant 4 row 5 as his fall wobbled, but stubbornly refused to fall to the Dark Arena sands!

Monk #6 succeeded in knocking Ant 5 row 4 Unconscious with Grievous Wounds with a deadly combination of Club and Hand Axe!

Ant 5 row 3 fell to the Dark Arena sands Unconscious with Grievous Wounds under the deadly combination of Club and Hand Axe to its front appendages! Monk #7 glared at his foe as it lay there twitching uncontrollably!

Monk #8 eliminated Ant 5 row 2 as both his Club and Hand Axe connected simultaneously on the head of his foe! The Unconscious Giant Ant would be dead in three rounds with Mortal Wounds!


There are 12 Giant Ants that have not suffered any damage whatsoever! Three others are twitching with new life! Four more are close to being rendered Unconscious!

Fighter #1 braced himself for the attack when a strange thing happened as Ants 1 and 2 from row 2 were unable to bite him!

Ant 1 row 3 wobbled forward to take another bite when the Giant Ant unexpectedly fell to the Dark Arena sands Unconscious! Then it immediately began twitching with new life as it lay in the sand before him!

Ant 1 row 4 managed to inflict one third the damage dealing potential upon Fighter #2 as it momentarily inflicted pain in his left forearm, but Ant 2 row 4 was unable to strike the agile Fighter!

Fighter #3 eluded Ant 3 row 4, although Ant 2 row 3 managed a minimum damage bite on the left side of his face!

Fighter #4 also eluded Ants 2 and 3 from row 5, although Ant 4 row 1 nearly nipped his nose in the process!

Fighter #5 took a minimum damage dealing bite to the right side of his head from Ant 4 row 5, but easily eluded Ant 3 row 2 as he staggered back in surprise from the bite!

Fighters #6, #7 and #8 had no trouble keeping themselves from harm! Although Fighter #7 had to twist and turn to keep Ant 3 row 3 from nipping his nose!

Fighter #1 seized his advantage against Ant 1 row 3 that had unexpectedly fallen before him! The power of his Two Handed Axe brought the Giant Ant to the threshold of Death’s Door!

Fighter #2 split the skull of Ant 1 row 1 to end its menace forever!

Fighter #3 did likewise against Ant 2 row 1 as did Fighter #4 against Ant 4 row 1 as their blades struck deep and true!

Fighter #5 swung his Two Handed Axe with such force into Ant 4 row 5 that its right side caved in as it crumpled to the Dark Arena sands Unconscious with Grievous Wounds!

Fighter #6 also rendered Ant 4 row 2 Unconscious with Grievous Wounds!

Ant 3 row 3 fell Unconscious to the Dark Arena sands as Fighter #7 connected with a savage blow to its right side!

Fighter #8 fared a bit better as Ant 5 row 2 fell to the Dark Arena sands Unconscious with Grievous Wounds!


The Human Fighters are facing 13 Giant Ants that have not suffered any damage! 5 others are Dead and Ant 2 row 4 is still able to attack the Fighters!

Without a moment of hesitation, Ollie Gory continued his attack against Ant 2 row 4 at the North End as he let the first of his two Arrows fly!

It struck the Giant Ant in the back with half the damage dealing potential, but his second Arrow did almost twice the damage as the Giant Ant threatening Fighter #2 fell to the Dark Arena sands Unconscious with Grievous Wounds!

The Half Orc Bard was pleased with the result, but Ollie Gory knew the Gladiators were a long way from defeating these foes, plus whatever other surprises emerged to confront them on the Dark Arena sands!

Bumble Brew shuddered as Ant 1 row 3 lay twitching in the Dark Arena sands as though it were trying to rise back up to continue battling!

She swung her Staff of Power more like a golf club into the right side of the Giant Ant, more of a reflex action than an actual attack, but fortunately the force of the blow from the magic item was just enough to Kill her foe!

Bumble Brew looked over to watch the Fuzzy Wolverine rake its claws along the back of Ant 1 row 2, rendering it Unconscious before sinking his teeth behind its head, inflicting Grievous Wounds that brought the Giant Ant closer to Death’s Door!

Ullrich looked to his top diagonal left at the potential menace of Ant 2 row 3 and with one fluid motion slashed with his Short Sword followed by his Sylvan Blade Long Sword that left the Giant Ant twitching Unconscious with Grievous Wounds on the Dark Arena sands!

Ariane the Paladin was fed up with Ant 5 row 4 stalking her and she vented all her frustration against its persistence! The force of the blow that came crashing upon its head from the Holy Avenger Long Sword dealt it a Mortal Wound as it lay motionless in the Dark Arena sands! [This Giant Ant will be Dead in 2 more rounds!]

Sir Yder uttered an oath of victory as his Dragon Slayer Long Sword drove deep into the skull of Ant 1 row 5, driving all traces of life from its body! The Giant Ant lay motionless, beyond the ability of the Dark Arena machinations to cause it to rise and attack again!

Amberlyn flowed with the power of The Light as she swung her Feathered Long Sword in a graceful arc that struck Ant 2 row 5 between the eyes, dropping the Giant Ant instantaneously lifeless in a Death Throe upon the Dark Arena sands!

Shandra the Monk heeded the sweet whisper of The Light as she swung her Club against the left side of the face of Ant 4 row 5, swiftly followed by a minimum damage slash against the right side of its face with her newly wielded Dagger!

The Giant Ant staggered and fell to the Dark Arena sands Unconscious with Grievous Wounds! But a split second later it began twitching as if it were trying to rise up to attack her again!

ThunnGarr the Mighty took heed to the warning from Ollie Gory as he quickly swung his Shield of Bashing into Ant 3 row 3, knocking it to the Dark Arena sands Unconscious with Grievous Wounds!

Almost in the same motion his attack was followed by an instant Death Blow from his Dwarven War Hammer upon the head of Ant 2 row 4, that mere moments before merely lay upon the Dark Arena sands Unconscious, but twitching in an effort to rise up and bite the Giant Dwarf again!

Cunning Fox also took to heart the warning from Ollie Gory as he moved 10 feet backwards in front of his stockpile of Extra Weapons!

The Native American Cleric was anticipating the need for more Arrows as he selected two to eliminate the Unconscious twitching Ants on the first row!

His first Arrow found its mark in Ant 3 row 1 with just enough damage to inflict Mortal Wounds! [This Giant Ant will Die in 3 more rounds!]

Ant 2 row 1 was struck in the right side by his second Arrow, but it remained twitching with the threat of rising again as the Arrow merely inflicted half the potential damage!

Initiative for Turn 1 Combat Round 5 has rolled in favor of the Giant Ants!

Ant 4 row 2 lunged and missed the Giant Dwarf as the remaining Conscious Giant Ants at the South End of the Dark Arena launched yet another attack against the South Enders!

Ariane the Paladin was denied her moment of personal celebration as Ant 4 row 3 broke past her Shield defense from her left side, biting her left forearm with near-maximum damage!

[Ariane suffers -5hp from the attack with 5hp remaining between her and unconsciousness!]

Ants 1 row 4, 3 row 4 and 4 row 4 rushed ThunnGarr the Mighty, inflicting maximum damage on his left arm, maximum damage on his right arm and two-thirds maximum damage on his right leg respectively!

[ThunnGarr suffers -16hp from the combined attacks! He has 30hp remaining!]

The Light protects Shandra the Monk as Ant 3 row 5 misses its opportunity to inflict any damage!

[For the record, Bumble Brew has 2hp and Shandra has 10hp remaining!]

The young paladin was close to dropping. She could feel it, but held on and remained on her feet. While she's still able to breathe, she had to keep going. With ANT 4-ROE 3 being closest, thre was a large change that Arianne would be attacked. Heeding Shandra's words, the paladin focuses on the ant between them.

ANT 4-ROW 5 that was also near was unconscious.

South Enders Gain Some Advantage Turn 1 Combat Round 5

Dark Arena
Emancipation Sand Dance

Present Day

The roar of the Dark Arena spectators seemed to increase with every passing minute as the Giant Ants appeared to get more ferocious with each attack against the four parties of gladiators at each end of the Dark Arena.

But the South Enders responded in like manner to the attacks of their foes as the Fuzzy Wolverine raked its claws along the back of Ant 1 row 2 and bit the back of its head until it fell lifeless to the Dark Arena sands!

Ullrich remembered the warning cry from Ollie Gory as his two blades sought to end the twitching of the Ants nearest him once and for all. He spun in the sand with his trademark stroke with his Short Sword that smote the twitching Unconscious Ant 3 row 2 with enough force that the wickedly timed slash in its left side ensured a Mortal Wound that would see his foe expire in two more rounds!

Then in a somewhat anti climatic curtain call movement, his Sylvan Long Sword split the skull of Ant 5 row 2 as the twitching immediately stopped as its life vanished instantly!

Intuitively the Ranger had expected Sir Yder to dispose of Ant 2 row 2 that lay twitching in the sand between them. The Knight did not disappoint as he ended the twitching by splitting the skull of his foe!

Shandra shouted to Ariane to attack the Ant between them as the Monk sank her Dagger deep enough into the back of Ant 4 row 5 to inflict a Mortal Wound that immediately ceased its twitching as its remaining hold on life would slip away in three more rounds!

She then swung her Club against the left side of Ant 3 row 5 that was positioned between her and Amberlyn from a top diagonal position. Although the force of the blow was only a third of the potential damage ability, it was sufficient to draw its attention away from the lady Knight and focus upon Shandra!

The young Paladin Ariane was visibly shaken from the previous attack that had so cruelly bitten her, but the shout from the Monk was so encouraging that the fatigue in her body suddenly surged with newfound inner strength as her Holy Avenger Long Sword struck with such force against Ant 4 row 3 that her foe dropped to the Dark Arena sands, maddeningly twitching to rise again even though it was as near to Death’s Door as it could possibly be!

Ariane was thankful that her foe would not be able to bite her again before the Killing Blow could be delivered by her blade!

Amberlyn moved five feet forward to her diagonal left direction as she shouted to the Giant Dwarf that she would help him so he would be able to maneuver into a better position to help work together against their remaining foes.

Her Feathered Long Sword bit deeply enough into the backside of Ant 4 row 2 to Mortally Wound the foe that had threatened ThunnGarr the Mighty! It would die in two more rounds!

ThunnGarr gunted as his Shield of Bashing extinguished the life from Ant 3 row 3 before his Dwarven Thrower War Hammer dealt less than half the potential damage dealing potential against Ant 4 row 4 that had been previously unharmed by any of the South Enders gladiators!

The Giant Dwarf then shouted instructions to the Elf Wizard, "Bumble Brew! Focus Your Staff of Power with a Lightning Bolt to Help Me Now!"
Bumble Brew concentrated as she channeled a blinding, sizzling bolt of electricity in a straight line path five feet wide and 100 feet long that struck Ant 1 row 4, the already dead Ant 2 row 4 and Ant 3 row 4 with half the force of damage the Staff of Power was capable of generating according to her Caster skill abilities!

Meanwhile, the Native American Cleric named Cunning Fox also responded to the warning from Ollie Gory as he selected two twitching foes.

His first Arrow ceased the twitching of Ant 2 row 1 as the damage inflicted was just enough to strike his foe with a Mortal Wound that would end its life in two more rounds!

However, his second Arrow only did a quarter of the damage dealing potential against Ant 1 row 1 as it continued its macabre twitching!


Only 7 Giant Ants remain to threaten the South Enders and 3 of them are twitching maniacally!

Sir Yder senses with his Helm of Telepathy that the Fuzzy Wolverine smells the scent of Ant 1 row 1 and will go for the Kill to protect Bumble Brew as it is the closest threat it perceives!

He is also aware that the 4 remaining active Ants have sent out a distress call for any of the others to the East or West to help them against the South Enders as quickly as possible!

Amberlyn is also aware of the same distress call with her Helm of Comprehend Languages!

Ant 4 row 3 between Shandra and Ariane is still twitching!

Ant 2 row 3 between the top diagonal right of Sir Yder and the top diagonal left of Ullrich is also twitching with renewed life!
