As the creature moves in aggressively, Caldwell chops a big bite out of one of its legs with his battleaxe. The blow would be sufficient to lay a man out, and the battlefly chuffs some air in reaction to the strike, but is still well enough to present a threat.

Stanles, on the stairwell, exhorts the others to make room, so that he can aid in the battle.

The battlefly's rightmost pincer lashes out, snapping for your chest, Caldwell, but you move to the side and it misses.

The woman's back remains arched, and she continues to scream.


OOC: 6 damage to the battlefly, now at 14/20 HP. Amata + Trystane are up, but only Amata is positioned to attack unless Trystane has a reach weapon. Please refer to the map in Post #619 above.

Trystane knows Stanles is the better fighter, and so moves to swap places with him.

"I've got your back," he says hurriedly, barely taking his eyes off the battlefly.

The ichor of the vine drips from Amata's sword as she turns to the insect and slashes at it.

"So many things that could be avoided with a bit more communication!"

You strike it a vicious blow to the head, Amata. It staggers, but doesn't fall. You switch places with Stanles, Trystane, and he shoots the battlefly in an arm with his pistol.

Flowers start to grow from the battlefly's wounds. It looks invigorated.

Stanles draws his second pistol and shoots it in the chest. It's still in the fight.


OOC: HP 14/20 -6 -6 = 2/20, regenerates 6 at end of round to 8/20. -4 from Stanles attack = HP 4/20 remaining.
Initiative: Caldwell, Amata, Trystane, Stanles: 2d6-1 6 2d6+1 9 2d6+1 8 2d6+2 14

Stanles went at end of round 1 and top of round 2. Amata + Trystane + Caldwell are up, then the battlefly.

OOC: Not sure what Trystane can really do when he's stuck in the back. He's not a ranged fighter. Could skip my turn if it helps.

"Keep chopping at the vines, Trystane!"

Amata stabs forward at the battefly again, the claustrophobic conditions preventing her from taking a full slashing swing.

Amata jabs the battlefly in the leg, hitting a vein. Caldwell cleaves it with his axe once more, a deep blow in the torso.

Trystane cuts at the vines running down the stairwell. The woman's torso in the large vase writhes more, and her screams redouble.

The battlefly collapses to the floor, tries to surge upwards, but fails. Thick violet, silver, and blue liquid leaks from it onto the floor of the attic. It doesn't move, and appears to be finished.

The woman's screams continue.


OOC: Battlefly 4/20 -6 -4 to -6/20, battlefly heals 6 to 0/20, and is dead.

Trystane cranes his neck to look back into the room, and upon seeing the battlefly dropped dead on the floor, he ceases attacking the vines and moves to the doorway of the room. The screaming is as piercing as it is distressing though, and he winces as he tries to see how the poor soul might be extricated from her bonds.

With the battlefly disposed of, Caldwell steps towards to study the vase, hoping to discern what he can about the plant, the woman, and the construction of the contraption.
