Feeling very bad about the fatal blow caused to the child, Hedoni tries to heal one of the others.

Heal Check: (1d20+8+1=13)

"Meh."

Mal sees the door fall on a child and is stunned for a moment, but then he gets back to the task at hand and soothes one of the remaining children.

Heal check (+9 skill, +1 24hr) (1d20+10=24)

OOC: Not sure if Hedoni's was an aid check or not...if it wasn't, he should get the bonus from Ravenblade's Aid Another.

It wasn't intended as such, and I can use the aid, I'm sure...

Ravenblade isn't much help as Hedoni tries to administer to the child's health. Hedoni assumes the boy's shivering means he is suffering from exposure to the cold and tries to warm him up. Unfortunately the wizard completely misses the fact that the child is burning with a fever. The child begins to have a seizure from the rise in temperature and then collapses dead.

As living child regains consciousness, he begins moaning softly and asking for his mother.

Ravenblade continues to stare numbly at what the other's are doing, fearing the worst.

OOC: And then there were only two. This is quite a depressing encounter. It's pouring rain and sleet outside and the imaginary kids are dying at our hands.

I did assume Ravenblade's Heal aid check went to help Hedoni's check. but Heal 15 isn't good enough.

Ravenblade has trouble breathing as he realizes another of the children has died, despite their efforts.

OOC: :'( I vote for making children immune to death in DnD from now on.

You think this is depressing? Just imagine having to tell the parents you failed to bring any of the kids back.

Yes, but this skill challenge needs 10 successes before 3 failures. Simply getting 3 heal successes won't get you to the finish line and Hedoni's failure still counts.

OOC: I will not be doing so. We have Mal for such delicate tasks. Ravenblade won't be able to look them in the eyes as is. Perhaps we should go back to the boss battle room and pound on Myrissa's and Fangren's corpses a little to let off some steam.

Don't forget that Fangren abducted these kids and had turn eight of them into her abyssal slaves. Let this fuel your anger to kill Sarshan and stop him from encouraging any more destruction.

Daggoth slumps again a wall.

"Now I can see why we're adventurers and not doctors. The lawsuits alone would take us for every last copper."

Looking at the crushed boy. "Well at least he died quick and did not suffer"

At Daggoth's last words, Ravenblade's eyes re-focus somewhat. "Yes....it was quick, that is always the best way." he thinks to himself.

Amyria seems as though she will soon break down, but after a moment, her tough exterior returns, and she moves back to the side of the breathing boy to offer what assistance she can.

We haven't failed the encounter yet - let's make the max allowed assist rolls, and get on with it.

Indeed, the encounter is not over. It is Daggoth's turn to try something.

Getting himself together, Daggoth sees if there is anything he can assist with to keep the last boy alive.

Heal Aid. (1d20+5+1=22)

Daggoth watches the boy closely. He notices the weakness and the fever as well the bite marks around his ankles and he suddenly remembers. The fighter recognizes the boy's symptoms as filth fever and has an unpleasant memory of contracting the disease himself. Daggoth points out the boy's condition to the others.

"Maybe if you, hold up his head and tilt it back, he'll be able to drink some water." suggests Ravenblade, with a weak voice.

1d20+8+1=19 Heal aid roll.

Who ever rolls the next heal check will have +4 from aids.

Also, the kid is awake so you can try social rolls too.

"Okay kid, come on, let's get you home. And there's absolutely no reason whatsoever to look in the other cells. All the other children are safe with their parents already."

Perhaps Salazar does not want to be saddled with a child on the return trip, or perhaps he wanted to test the theory of reverse psychology, or perhaps he is just not thinking very clearly. What ever the reason, as soon as the child hears Salazar's words, he looks into the two other cells. The sight of his good friends, dead and/or mangled, makes the last child turn pale and faint (dead away). He hits his head on the hard stone floor and dies instantly.

OOC: Oh dear. I did not expect to have to kill off the last kid from a failed BLUFF check. Sigh.

"Huh. Okay, then. Looks like we're done here." Salazar starts to walk up the stairs.

"Let's head back to Overlook, I wanna spend some of the loot we've found."

He pauses as if he's reminded himself of something, then turns around, returns to the bodies, and thoroughly searches the children for any valuables. Pocketing anything he finds, he heads back out of the fortress.

Ravenblade freezes in place and stares dumb-foundedly at the last boy who just dropped dead. He looks at Salazar, then at the boy, then at Salazar, then at all three boys...

The ranger pinches himself with a tiny bit of hope...

He feels the pinch...

...and sighs.

OOC: LOLOLOL!!!! Morbid as this is, I just couldn't stop laughing at reading Emily's post of the kid dying. We should use bluff during battle encounters. It's obviously a killer skill.
