The poison goes through the bugbear, and it falters; it's badly wounded, but still up, and the poison wasn't enough to fell it. It howls in anger and shock, and attempts to angle its weapon to hit the spider that has just attacked it:
The morningstar connects, and the spider vanishes; in its place, a druid appears, his mouth full of bugbear fur, standing next to the creature. The bugbear's eyes go wide in shock.
(1 point of damage transfers over to Nate.)
(I'm piloting Delmon for a day or so while Xaipher is away)
Delmon's attention is on Bugbear 1, and he makes another attack with his maul:
Attack: 17 Damage: 6 (extra d20 because that should have been reckless 13)
With the damage it took from Nate's spider, this blow is enough; the bugbear thinks it can withstand it and brings up his shield, but enough of SpiderNate's poison got into his system to weaken him, his arm gives out under the blow, and both his arm and his face crack under the maul's power. Bugbear 1 is dead.
The Bugbear Leader is tempted to attack Delmon (who killed his colleague) and Leo (who taunted him): 1 Delmon it is.
Attack: 12 Damage: 5
Yet it seems something is putting him off his game; perhaps the taunts, perhaps being so clearly outnumber, but he can't land the blow.
Ophirinn, Omnia, Leo and Brom are up. Bugbear 2 is uninjured, Bugbear 1 is dead, the Leader is lightly wounded, and the goblin is unconscious.
Both Omnia and Brom lay into the bugbear leader; from a position a moment ago where he seemed to be doing well, the tide of battle has turned; he is badly hurt and howls in pain as Brom's first axe slices a large chunk of skin and flesh from his side.
Bugbear 2, still unharmed, turns his attention to Brom, who he sees as the greatest threat. He roars in anger, and attacks:
Attack: 6 Damage: 13
But unsuccessfully; Brom brings both axes up in a cross before him, and it catches the morningstar for a moment before Brom pushes the weapon back and away.
The goblin remains unconscious on the ground.
A: Nate and Delmon
C: Delmon D: Bugbear Leader E: Omnia, Brom, Ophirinn and Leo in any order. F: Bugbear 2 and Goblin
Nate spits the tuft of Bugbear fur out of his mouth (it actually didn't taste horrible Nate thinks to himself).
Nate has never experienced having one of his morphed creatures die. It hit him harder than he was anticipating as he feels connected in every way to the creature that he assumes the shape of. He feels sadness. All of this happening in a split second in his mind.
Nate grits his teeth, raises one of his hands and shoots it forward and opens it up in front of the Bugbear leader's face. Nate casts Poison Spray into the leader's face.
Nate is in awe of what they've just done. He takes a moment to catch his breath, then looks to Delmon and the huge wound he has on his back from the Bugbear's cheap shot. "Delmon, that looks... bad. If you need another healing potion just let me know. I still have one left."
Nate then remembers the KO'd redbrand they left in the other room. He will go back in there and drag the body into the bugbear room and put him beside the goblin.
