Previously . . .
They follow the message to a marketplace where they’re waiting with a large number of cultists and demons with the He brothers and Mouse tied to a fountain in the center. It appears in the notetaker’s absence several things have occurred including sneaking onto rooftops and watery cats that were never talked about before but have apparently been there since the previous session. Mouse is quite grumpy at being tied up and set to be in the middle of the fountain.
Attacking the Block
Jian Wu, Jiao Ting, Liang Jing Min, Nongmin Chushi, Sheng Yi, and Zhiyu Zhige
Cheapside Fish Market
Seventh Month 15th day, 1004 Zao Dynasty, 6th hour
Pingxian, Fu Dao Province
The group tries to approach a bit stealthily into the center with them split into three groups. Sheng Yi, Jing Min, Nongmin, and Rang coming from behind on a building. Zhiyu and Ren sneaking across a small river by the bridge, and Jian Wu, Lanfen, and Ting bringing up seeming vanguard across the main bridge, rather obvious with the size of his sword.
Jing Min floats down from the rooftop and stabs several cultists in the back, killing them. Sheng Yi’s arrows fire off killing another cultist from behind. Nongmin manipulates his dagger with his telekinesis towards the captives to help let them escape. Rang fires her crossbow at the cultist that survived Sheng’s attack. Zhiyu casts Greater Haste on her companion, Ren, who goes into blender mode and kills a man.
With their surprise now over, Jing Min strikes a cultist’s vitals killing them. Ren moves and slices off a man’s head before moving into a defensive stance. Zhiyu summons her firefox wisps while Mouse breaks loose of her bonds. Lanfen charges forwards to strike at a White Bone Demon, unaffected by the bad stench of the something or other Demon, but unfortunately the Bone Demon dodges. Sheng Yi fires three more arrows, only managing to hit two of his targets in their vitals, the last one keeping upright just fine. Jian Wu leaps forwards with a quicksilver strike to destroy the smelly demon with his large sword, killing it with a single blow. An opponent summons up five foxfire wisps. A smelly demon moves to attack Ren who parries it, causing damage to the demon’s axe arm, somehow. A bone demon strikes at Jian Wu who also parries it, knocking the demon back. The bone demons charge towards the group as He (somebody) slips from his bonds in the fountain, whoever tied the ropes did a poor job. Ting, without being able to actually reach anyone just simply moves forwards. The cultists start throwing out fireballs, missing Sheng Yi and Jian Wu while several cultists manage to drop their spells causing themselves to explode and catch their clothes on fire. Donghai manages to grab onto a cultist from behind while a cultist dodges Rang’s crossbow bolt.
Jing Min charges forwards and strikes at a cultist, managing to miss with both attacks. Ren strikes out twice, causing a lot of damage to the smelly demon, killing it with ease. Zhiyu sends her firefox to a cultist that dodges while casting a Great Haste on Ting. Mouse grabs Nongmin’s knife from the air and starts to stab the bone demon. Sheng Yi fires out several arrows at one of the mages, they explode in the air when a bit away from the body. Jian Wu charges through and slices through opponents. The witch casts Greater Haste on her boss. The smelly demon moves to strike at Ren who dodges out of the way. One of the Bone Demons strikes at Lanfen but she dodges out of the way. Ren gets struck at a bone demon that he parries. A bone demon strikes at Jian Wu’s groin but gets parried. He Donghai breaks the neck of the cultist he has grappled. Ting, now great hasted, leaps through small holes in the vendor stand and past most of the combatants to strike at the foxy witch, starting with a feinted slam and moving to grasp her collar and knee her in the vitals as she attempts to blink away
After Action Report (GM)
Another combat heavy game – but it wasn’t meant to be so completely. I was called away to deal with some personal crap. The PCs worked really well together and came at a problem where they were at three to one odds in a very tactical manner. We had to pause mid boss battle (it wasn’t an intentional pause) so we’ll be doing that next week.
Bonus report here.
