Not that I'm not happy with killing the demon, but as a large creature it's wounds are 1.5 x it's CON. To die from 14 Wounds it would have to have a CON of 9

That said, if it's just 10, I'd be happy to spend my last AD to raise the damage to validate this outcome.  :)

Oh, great.
In that case, carry on nothing to see here. Just wanted to keep this fair  :)

Sorry, could've sworn I had posted my actions... I think we're ready to progress the round, then.

OK, it's been two weeks since anyone other than me posted in OOC and nearly a month in IC.  It is time to call this one dead?

Well, shit. My abject appologies.

I've been so absolutely hammered by the past month that I hadn't realised how much time had gone by. Everytime I sat down to update, something would always grab me. I'm off to deal with one such thing now.

Here's most of the combat round. I'll finish it later tonight.



V: 6/156
W: 0/21
Grumblejack roars fiercely as he hurls the body of the beast aside and finally rises once more to his feet, anger and bloodlust suffusing him. Scooping up his mighty axe, he roars a challenge at the remaining foe but it falls on indifferent ears

Spoiler: show

Reposition. Taunt (action fails)



V: 0/70
W: 0/14
Seeing one of the great shaggy beasts fall, Aiden is filled with determination to end the fight quickly. In one smooth move he places his shield on the opposite shoulder while shifting his stance so that side is facing the remaining daemon, then leaps at the daemon shield first, shifting as much of his weight behind it as he can as well as aiming it as high on the daemon as he can.

Unfortunately his charge is met with a large dismissive backhand slap against his shield that sends the fallen knight spinning off into the wall and thence onto his knees with a thunderous clash of metal against stone.

Spoiler: show

Bullrush fails; reposition 5' and sprawled


 


V: 44/???, 100/???
W: 0/???, 23/???
The remaining creature seems momentarily torn about what it should do -- advance towards the one near the altar, strike the one it's just floored, and see to the ogre are all valid options. But it settles on 'Return the favour of killing my companion' and rounds on Creamor.

As had Grumblejack it roars, but this isn't a challenge. Rather it's a threat of violent and prolonged death, a threat that hits home on its intended target but perhaps too well. The cringe it induces in the devil man pulls him narrowly but sufficiently out of the way of the bolt of crackling energy that follows the roar, leaving him slightly singed but unharmed.

Spoiler: show

Threaten: 28 vs 24, success. Inflict 5 stress damage.
Attack: Lightning bolt. Misses



V: 0/70
W: 0/14
S: 7/12




V: 0/45
W: 0/13
...


V: 0/54
W: 0/14
S: 4/10
The memory of the feeling of the demon's heart bursting is a bastion against the menace offered by  Creamor's foe and he clutches to it. "Come Grumblejack!" he cries boldly. "Let's not let this other one feel lonely!"

Charging forward, the devil-man sinks his fangs into suddenly vulnerable daemonic flesh.

 
Spoiler: show
The bite delivers 10 damage




V: 0/60
W: 0/12
...
