Attack The Darkness

 
Richard gains consciousness, then realizes he is not able to move his limbs. He looks down to see the Darkmantle trying to eat through his armor "GET THIS THING OFF OF ME!!" He cries out, and begins to struggle.

Vicky





Vicky releases her breath again, not even noticing she held it upon seeing Richard taken down. 'They're going to overwhelm us at this rate,' she realizes, causing a chill of fear to run down her spine. 'I need to dig out the big guns... if I have any.'

She maneuvers into a better position and focuses. Pulling forth as much power as she can muster, she unleashes a mental attack on a whole group of the darkmantles. Her hair stands out in all directions for a moment, caused by the feedback from her power. Unfortunately, she fails to notice that ZhuGuan is also within reach of her power.

The release of such sudden power probably triggers a lot of hormones. Vicky both feels and looks like she's a bit high where she stands, failing to suppress a grin despite the seriousness of the situation. Not to mention the stench threatening to kill her if she moves any closer.

The

darkmantle attacking Richard is hit by Styg before Vicky's attack can reach it. It vanishes as her power pulses in the hallway attacking even one of her own teammates in the process. She manages to hurt quite a few of them though, and even kills one of the
darkmantle 1
buggers. Luckily ZhuGuan Yu isn't affected by the blast.

John Clarke - Eladrin Revenant Hybrid (Warden/Swordmage)



John shakes his head at the two new members "Will you two stop dieing. They're only darkmantles." The aura of death from the fallen darkmantle wraps itself around his blade urging John to strike the one in front of him. But his sight and the horrible smell coming from Guan will be a challenge.


Jared Lees, Halfling, Gloom Pact Binder

Jared slips in behind John, leans around the revenants legs, and again sends a wave of shadow, visions of horror writhing in its depths, towards the Darkmantles.


ZhuGuan, half-elf

ZhuGuan ducks as a pulse of energy barrels down the hallway from Vicky's direction. "God's woman!"


Attack The Darkness - Round 4

John shakes his head at the two new members, "will you two stop dieing. They're only darkmantles."

"Damn," ZhuGuan curses as sweat pours in rivulets and the loss of his weapon. "Sometimes, I hate this body."

Vicky releases her breath again, not even noticing she held it upon seeing Richard taken down. 'They're going to overwhelm us at this rate,' she realizes, causing a chill of fear to run down her spine. 'I need to dig out the big guns... if I have any.'

ZhuGuan Yu watches as Richard falls to the darkmantle's suffocation. He pulls out a jagged dagger of his own make. It's handle wrapped in rags scavenged from the dungeon and attempts to savage the wounded darkmantle in front of him. He hopes he can thin their ranks enough to help their wounded companion. He swings blindly with two quick swipes, but neither manage to strike the creature bearing down on him. He paws at his eyes, finally managing to wipe the sweat from them enough to see again. He looks at how far away his weapon landed. He might be stuck with these obsidian daggers for awhile unless he makes a big, and risky move.

Richard gains consciousness, then realizes he is not able to move his limbs. He looks down to see the Darkmantle trying to eat through his armor "GET THIS THING OFF OF ME!!" He cries out from the ground, and begins to struggle.

Styg, desperate, yells, "Maneuver for advantage, now! Every blow must be true!"

Styg strikes the Darkmantle attacking Richard with his axe, this time powering it with some divinity that causes it to form a black ice. He strikes it hard, and the divine black ice seems to hurt it more than Styg even expected with the resistances these creatures seem to have. The beast attached to Richard vanishes from sight after the attack, leaving black blood all over the front of Richard, who is still very hurt.

Vicky maneuvers into a better position and focuses. Pulling forth as much power as she can muster, she unleashes a mental attack on a whole group of the darkmantles. Her hair stands out in all directions for a moment, caused by the feedback from her power. Unfortunately, she fails to notice that ZhuGuan is also within reach of her power.

The dark mantle on Richard vanishes as her power pulses in the hallway attacking even one of her own teammates in the process. She manages to hurt quite a few of them though, and even kills one of the

buggers.

ZhuGuan ducks as a pulse of energy barrels down the hallway from Vicky's direction. "God's woman!" Luckily ZhuGuan Yu isn't affected by the blast.

The aura of death from the fallen darkmantle wraps itself around John's blade urging John to strike the one in front of him. But his sight and the horrible smell coming from Guan will be a challenge. His attack misses, but he creates an arcane link between itself and him. He plans on keeping this one busy. Jared slips in behind John, leans around the revenant's legs, and again sends a wave of shadow, visions of horror writhing in its depths, towards the Darkmantles. He strikes two of them including the one that John just tried and failed to hit.

Turag doesn't get the help he had hoped for. He struggles against the darkmantle, and manages to break free, but because he is still dazed from that last sonic attack, it is all he can manage to do. He whimpers as he looks at the creature floating in front of him. Maybe he should have just hidden in one of the cells. He could have just closed the door... like when the orcs died when these things attack. Why didn't he just hide?

The darkmantle that Styg had hurt earlier comes back from the room where they all came from originally. It charges at ZhuGuan intent on wrapping itself around the half-elf. It's body has spots of the black ice still covering the flying aberration. Despite the stench, the pain, the proximity to John and the sweaty body, the creature manages to latch onto the half-elf. He begins biting into Guan's

Hurt and partially stunned by Vicky's attack from a few moments before, the darkmantle around the corner from Styg just can't seem to being imself to move. It whips another tentacle at the blackguard from around the doorway. Styg's arcane aura doesn't seem to affect the creature as it smacks Styg. It

tears through Styg's magical shielding and hurts him. Styg knows he can't take much more abuse and there is still a darkmantle behind him. He may have saved Richard, but he may not be able to save himself.

charge towards Jared. It's tentacles whip around as it moves. It pushes Guan and John out of the way as it barrels down the hallway towards Jared. Guan is now close enough that the odor is affecting Richard as well.

The darkmantle whips a tentacle into Jared, sending the halfling flying through the air far away from the others. He crashes into the ground and has the wind

The one that Turag just escaped from
