Round 3: (Assuming that the Quasit will have done a vanishing act again since Divia's round 2action).

Argan scowls as he sees his friends get singed.  Time to go after a new target, if he can reach it. 

Notice check: 10

EDIT: However, right now, he doesn't want to take his eyes off his current opponent to scan the room, so he waits for someone else to point the quasit out.  (Delay until after Divia's turn.)

Teo continues his litany:

From the Spawn of Lamashtu, deliver us...

1d20+5=6. Error.

Mandy steps up and digs into Wrathspawn 2.

Spoiler: show

10' move.
Attack at +0:1d20=4, 1d8+1=9. A miss.

Haldar steps across the corner of the triangular pool and swings twice at the wrathspawn while Volokkor bites twice at the loathsome monster.

A gurgling cough can be heard from where Divia spotted the demon, and the she sees a wad of... something vile flying towards her for a brief moment before it smacks into her face. The demonic phlem smells of rotting flesh and brimstone and its... wriggling.
Spoiler: show
The roll is 27 vs 15. Natural 20, Threat. GM activates the threat, GM has 9 dice left. Divia fails the save and is sickened.

After a moment of muttering, a three beams of fire flky to strik Alden, Divia, and Shyla. Alden and Divia are slightly singed, while Shyla ignores the magical flames.
Spoiler: show
Roll is 26. After resistances, Alden takes 5 points of Fire, and Divia takes 2 points of Fire. Divia and Alden both save and are not on fire.

The quasit is then gone again.

Haldar's first swing cuts into the demon, sheering off a... something... maybe a vestigle wing... the hewn limb drops to the ground in a spray of vile black fluid and acrid smoke, the demon doesn't seem fazed though. His backswing goes wide however.
Spoiler: show
19 hits. The demon makes it's damage save. 11 does not hit.


Argan sword goes wide and the wrathspawn manages to avoid the brutal shield bash.
Spoiler: show
 8 and 12 are both misses.


Volokkor lunges at the demon, over extending himself and getting bopped on the nose for it. He recovers, and lashes out at the demon, tearing into it's throat. The vile child of Lamashtu crumples in a spray of smoking, arid blood.
Spoiler: show
8 misses and is an error. GM activates it with one die, for 1d6 points subdual.  Roll is 6. Save is 5 vs 15, the wolf is now Fatigued I. 17 hits, doing 12 points of damage. Demonb fails it's save and is dead.


Shyla attacks the wrathspawn next to her, to no avail as it dodges her determined attemtps to kill it.
Spoiler: show
14 and 12 both miss.


Divia, through keen Elven senses and maybe just a little luck or blessing from the Savored Sting spots the Quasit playing games and fires two precious Nexavaran Steel tipped arrows at her. Sadly they go wide, clattering off the cathedral's roof. She's pointed out where the little demon is for the moment though.
After she looses her arrows, Divia hears movement in the hallway behind them, something shuffling and multiple somethings with clattering claws.
Spoiler: show
2 and 10 both miss. Mr A, Divia's at -2 from the Cathedral's aura, and -2 from sickened


The wrathspawn by the triangular pool hisses and attacks Volokkor, it's claws battering wolf before it clamps down on the back of Volokkor's neck. It throws the wolf to the ground and hisses, spreading it;s jaw wide as the battered, bleeding wolf struggles his way back to his feat.
Spoiler: show
Rolls are 22, 21, and 14. All hit. Damage rolls are 6, 7, and 5, with each getting a 2 point Stress kicker. Lethal damage reduces Volokkor to 0 Vitality and 9 wounds. Volokkor gains another grade of Fatigued. Volokkor's stress saves are 15 vs 12, 4 vs 14, and 12 vs 11, gaining a grade of Shaken. Volokkor rolls a 2 vs the sickening effect, and a 13 vs the enraging. The wolf is sickened for 4 rounds.


Mandy luunges for the wrathspawn, missing it cleanly.

Teo concetrates on his prayers, imploring the Inheritor, but the only thing he hears is the hyena like cackle of the Mother of Monsters laughing at his pleas.
Spoiler: show
GM spends an action die, Teo takes 1 point of stress (grumble, grumble, damn dice). Teo makes his save.


Alden implores Iomedae, calling upon her strength and hatred of the dark and evil, his sword glowing brighter.
Spoiler: show
Alden succeeds his Resolve check.


Paiter draws his main gauche and slips past the wrathspawn's sweeping claws with some fancy footwork and acrobatics dredged up from his days fighting on deck, his aging bones protesting the whole way. As he comes up behind the wrathspawn, he's shocked to see the light from Alden's sword flare, so brightly it should blind them, if only briefly... but it doesn't. Instead everyone feels a strengthening, bolstering presesnce driving back the fear and darkness. The quasit screeches and something howls in fury as it's driven from the place.
Spoiler: show
Roll is 24 vs 15. Catodon plays Marked by the Gods. Not only does the -2 get wiped out, you guys get a +2 to everything for the rest of the combat.


The wrathspawn next to Argan hisses and attacks the young man, connecting with one of it's claws.
Spoiler: show
The rolls are 14, 18, and 15. Miss, hit, miss. Damage roll is 7 lethal and 2 stress. Argan makes his Stress save.


The wrathspawn between Paiter and Alden hisses in the light, steps back, and turns to attack Paiter, one of it claws slipping past his guard.
Spoiler: show
Rolls are 10, 21, 7. Miss, hit and miss. Damage is 5 lethal, 2 stress. Paiter rolls 22 to save.


The wrathspawn fighting Shyla circles her and attacks, but she evades it's flailing with contemptuous ease.
Spoiler: show
Rolls are 11, 9, and 13. All misses.

As the last attack scrapes off his shield, Argan sees the chance for a quick and dirty stab with his shortsword.

Spoiler: show

Combat Reflexes feat
To hit: 1d20+3=18 EDIT: 1d20+7=22 (+2 rather than -2)
Damage: (1d8+4)/2=5 lethal, AP2 with bleed & massive.

On his turn, he'll still be delaying.  And I'm aware this would make more sense after the first attack, but I wouldn't want to retroactively mess things up.

Shyla shifts about, refusing to be touched by the creature and retaliates with two swift strikes from her sword.
Spoiler: show

First attack: 1d20+6=18, 1d10+2=12

Nah bad. In the unlikely event that that misses, the second attack will have Relentless Attack placed on it for a further +2

1d20+6=13, 1d10+2=6

“Iomedae’s blazing shield” gasps Paiter when the temple is filled with light. Crouched catlike Paiter concentrates on eluding the spawn’s claws hoping to occupy the abomination until it’s comrades are dispatched. An opening presents itself and the grey privateer makes an opportunistic slash with his cutlass.
Spoiler: keeping things moving • show

The quasit appears for a brief moment in front of Divia, chanting another prayer to the Mother of Monsters, her blood sacrifice splattering on the floor next to Alden where it erupts into another Spawn of Lamashtu. She the turn and looks contemptously at Divia with a sneer.

"As if you could teach me anything about suffering, you pathetic halfbreed. Besides, your hair looks good like that."

And then she's gone.
Spoiler: show
Erylium casts Call from Beyond I. Roll is 29, success. She then taunts Divia, roll is 18 vs 21, the quasit fails. Divia gains a +1 to hit on her next attack against the quasit.


The spawn howls and swings it's axe at Alden, missing wide both tinmes.
Spoiler: show
Rolls are 8 and 16. Both miss.


Haldar's first swing cuts into the demon, cutting deep into it's leg. It drops to it's knees and Haldar takes it's head.
Spoiler: show
Both rolls hit, the wrathspawn fails it's first save, and the critical kills it.


Argan delays.

Volokkor looks around before leaping off the platform and attacks the wrathspawn engaged with Argan, tearing into it's legs.
Spoiler: show
Crit wipes out WS1's tough.


Shyla manages to tag the wrathspawn with one of her attacks, drawing blood as the beats hisses in pain.
Spoiler: show
First attack hits and the wrathjspawn fails it's save.


Divia manages to claw the vile goo from her face and manages to spot the quasit hovering in the air.

Mandy takes a flying leap at the flying demon:
Athlietcs:1d20+6=9
Burn an AD:1d4.open(4)+2=8
For a total of 15 (17-2 for shaken) plus any environmental modifiers. If that "succeeds" I'll make an attack.

Teo swings at the Brawler, twice, and (I expect) misses both times:
1d20+2=10, 1d12+2=3
And again:
1d20+2=11, 1d12+2=9
I forgot the -2 for Shaken, but may have a +2 for environment.

Argan turns from the wrathspawn at his feet to take down the one menacing Paiter.

Spoiler: show
5' step and slash: 1d20+7=26; spend an action die to activate the crit.
1d8+6 = 9 damage
(I'm guessing this is a standard character so this is irrelevant; otherwise, spend another action die to boost the damage by three).


Then [assuming this downed the wrathspawn], he takes a step in the direction of the quasit, and hurls his ichor-stained blade at the other wrathspawn menacing Shyla. his eyes narrowing as he considers the thing's motivations even as the blade flies straight and true.

Spoiler: A deadly throw • show

1d20+8 = 26
Damage: 1d8+6=12.  EDIT: Spend an action die to activate the crit.  If only one was spent in the previous action, spend the final action die to add 3 to the damage, for a total of 15 damage, with Massive, Bleed and AP 4.


EDIT: No cold read; it didn't really seem appropriate, with these changes.  (Handy though it might be to get some plot knowledge of the quasit...)
