Dog swings his warhammer at the construct as it flees, turning his head briefly to say, "anyone who's not feeling great, feel free to jump away. I won't stay here longer than I should, but these things won't leave us alone."
AoO: 9 Damage: 11
He follows after the construct with FeyTok, using his normal attacks as he moves or once he makes his move to catch up:
(Okay, bear with me here, since we did some things out of order. Here's how the last few seconds unfolded: Stones successfully landed Dissonant Whispers, then the minotaur turned and ran, using its reaction, then everyone took their AoOs, then Tock missed with his crossbow shot, then Feytok chased the minotaur and gave it Hell and did NOT get sprayed with crystal splinters, then Dog landed the final blow.)
The Minotaur's roar is interrupted as it shatters and falls to the ground in a rain of crystal. Another roar echoes from very close in the maze in response to the party defeating their third crystal foe.
Feytok brushes off Bulwark's attentions. "I'm fine," he growls. He points to a glowing shard amidst the clutter of broken crystal. "I think we're about to have more company, so grab that and let's go."
Dog grabs the shard, pockets it, and raises his longbow down the hallway with an arrow nocked. "Go ahead into the light, I'll take another couple shots at the next one as it comes down the hall and then step in."
Feytok readies his ax to throw from Dog's side. Tense moments pass as hooves clomp through the nearby passageway. Then, the fourth minotaur emerges and bellows at the party. Dog's first arrow strikes but his second fires wide. Feytok hurl's his ax and then retreats to the edge of the red aura, the ax appear back in his hand.
It is coming right on the heels of the last one. It appears to have come through the green aura room and is just north of the spike traps in the passageway north of the red aura room. It is presently at the T intersection north of everyone.
We appear in the green teleporter room, right? Does teleportation make a sound? If not, Dog will be totally silent (Stealth: 5), seeing the minotaur charging to the red aura and peek his head around the corner of the southern entrance to the green room, trying not to leave the green aura in case others decide to engage the construct from the green room or flee out another entrance.
(OOC: Oh shoot, we go to blue, don't we. I should just let the wings of plot take me and stop trying to think I can keep track of everything.)
Dog appears in blue? And does he see the broken-down door to the east? If so, he suggests listening for how close stomping and roaring is, and then try heading north to explore, unless that's where the sounds are coming from.
As Dog and Gash disappear into the red aura, the minotaur stops advancing and roars at the ceiling. It then fixes its crystalline eyes on the closest of the party (Bulwark) and begins to move...
(The minotaur will move after Bulwark, Stones, and Tock take their action. Combat is still on!)
Dog and Gash:
The goliath and goblin, quite the mismatched pair, appear in the light blue aura. To the east is the broken door. Further east is another locked door where Gash was roasted by a magical trap. In the distance, but not the farthest possible distance, they can hear the bellow of the crystal minotaur they left behind.
