    The heavy drizzle and mist around the fens befuddles more than a few of you as find the ground becomes increasingly boggy and treacherous, a fair bit of time is lost as some people take wrong turns or make bad guesses.

    It's starting to get dark out on the moors, but a few of the more eagle-eyed amongst you spot the faintest outline of what might be a hut on stilts about a half-mile away (the functional limit of your vision right now). The smells of swamp gas and rotting vegetation hang heavy in the air. Urash gets excited and swears he can smell something cloyingly "sweet"coming from a still pool about 20 yards away from you -- like honeysuckle and sweetmeats (roll a 1d100 L'ennui)

    Urash almost unconsciously guides his horse closer and closer to waters edge, drawn by the sweet scents filling his nose. However, when you are about ten feet away from the turgid pool, your reverie is broken when bubbles begin to rise and *plop*; slowly at first and then more rapidly.

    "Uh, guys..."

    Urash steers the pony backwards, regaining some distance from the pool.

    "There seems to be some movement in there."

    He points at the bubbles breaking the surface.

    Borric readies a torch in his left hand and grips his maul nearest to the business end in his right and jumps off his horse.

    Urash will also dismount after having moved away, provided he has the time.

    Griffon, fey goat guy, and disappearing stairs. We've have a lot of fantastical stuff lately. I bet this is just an overly gassy turtle. We'll all have a chuckle at it and our overreaction and move along. It takes days to post about it because it's JUST. THAT. GASSY.

    One by one you dismount or move away from the ominously roiling pool. The stream of bubbles stop for a few seconds and the pool goes fallow. Suddenly a bluish-green monstrosity erupts from the black waters of the marsh, looking something like a colossal frog about over 10' wide and long. A single eyestalk juts from the top of its head, and 4 rubbery, green-black tentacles snap and writhe through the air at least ten feet long reaching out in front of its weird gaping maw full of razor-sharp teeth. Instinctively it surges forward with frightening speed.

    From top to bottom: Mab, Urash, Cormac (left), Ker (right), Rhenmyr, Borric, Marcán

    Everyone being alerted to "something" is free to act without being surprised.

    ROUND 1: (state intent, Move up to 1/2 your move, but -5 Dex ranks with 2 MV, and -10 Dex ranks with 4 MV. Beast has reach, so you'll have to dodge to get near enough it to attack with anything less than a pike/Long spear)

    Urash recoils from the monster, then regains his composure and points a crooked finger at the beast. He utters a string of harsh, guttural words.

    Show Spoiler
    1/2 move away IF that still lets me begin casting the spell (if not, Urash not moving), then casting Agony.

    Agony (resisted POW vs POW): [1d100] = 20

    If the monster doesn't blow up from the aforementioned torch, Marcán meekly tries to get closer to the monster to swipe at it.

    Dodge check if I get close enough: Dodge Check (87) vs [1d100] = 8

    Urash must be stationary, or else his casting roll becomes 'difficult' (half skill).

    ERYFKRAD what is Borric's throw skill?

    Marcán easily slips past the lashing tentacles.

    When I'm not restricted to posting from my phone in a few hours, I'll post armour rolls
