The creature roared in pain as the knife pierced its heart, but it remained on its feet.

Spoiler:
On an impale you'd have rolled 4d4 for damage, but a roll of 1-5 is a crtiical hit. In this case the damage is normal, but it ignores armor. Also, your knife does not get stuck in the creature.

Chad and Tobias, you may act now.

Tobias cusses under his breath at the contrariness of the device, he squeezes it again and electricity arcs over his companions' heads.But misses the monster's head.

The monster fled up the stairs. It was in agony, but it did not have far to go to reach the top. It pushed aside a stone slab in the ceiling, and sunlight spilled into the stairway from above.

Spoiler:
Each of you may get one more attack now if you wish, but it is no longer at point blank range and it gets a chance to Dodge any successful hits (but roll damage anyway).

Leonek charges ahead and throws his knife at the beast, narrowly missing it.

For some reason, the device doesn't fire. "Recharging maybe." Tobias mutters as he follows after Leonek. He looks forward to the sunlight.

Watching the beast retreat and the sunlight spill in signaling they had reached the surface, Chad smiled; as such he puts his knife away, and readies his pistol and heads to the sunlight. "Spot on good knife play Leonek, now let's get up there!"

Image

The creature hauled itself up through the hole in the cavern roof and disappeared from view. Chad was close behind it, and he emerged into a ruined abbey perched on a high cliff top. To the west, in the direction of the sun, a road was visible some distance away. To the east was the edge of the cliff, and it was for this that the fishman was running.

Spoiler:
Chad, please roll Spot Hidden. Leonek and Tobias, please roll as well if you also emerge. Each of you may make one more attack prior to the creature's turn, with the same conditions as before.

Leonek nods sternly.

"Not good enough..."


He emerges from the hole as well and looks around quickly, before chasing after the creature and throwing his knife. Cursing softly as he misses his target.

As Chad emerges, he looks around and is far to focused on his foe to notice anything. Given the open air, Chad decides to risk the report of his pistol, but the shot misses.

Tobias still could not get the bizarre weapon to fire again, nor did he notice anything else. Three other gunshots rang out in the distance, but nobody could see where.

The creature reached the edge of the cliff before anyone could fire again and leapt off in a graceful dive. Its running start ensured that it could clear enough distance to get to water that wasn't too shallow, and a splash came from below.

Spoiler:
I rolled for Tobias in order to keep things moving.

Chad and Tobias, please roll Listen. Leonek already rolled.

"Damn it! It got away!"


He looks around, trying to determine where those shots came from.


"We should hurry down to the others before that creature raises the alarm."

Tobias grimaces at the gadget. "So much for future technology." He puts it away and circles around as he hears something, "What's that? And where's the mansion? I thought the tunnels led to it but all I can see are those old ruins."

Spoiler:
Tobias could tell that the gunshots, which were the report of a handgun, came from below on the beach, in the area where Horsham's shack was. He also heard a car door open and close from the direction of the road, followed by a single set of footsteps approaching the ruins. Whoever it was walked with a limp.

"Uh oh, sounds like they're having problems down by the shack on the beach - that was a gun firing. And there's someone approaching from the road." Tobias readies his rather useless gadget and points it towards the approaching person. He hears the uneven footsteps, "Who do we know with a limp?" He asks the others.

"No one..."

Leonek turns in the direction Tobias indicates and draws his spare knife.

None of them could see the approaching figure with the ruins in the way, but at least whoever was coming was unlikely to be able to see them. Another gunshot came from the same direction as the others.

Spoiler:
Chad was also able to confirm that the gunshots came from below and some distance to the north, and he too heard one set of footsteps approaching from the direction of the road.

Chad listens and responds in a low voice. "Let's deal with our visitor first and quickly. I'll get a look at whomever, you two take up positions to cover me." Chad following his ears and using the ruins for cover and concealment moves to get a clandestine glimpse of their new threat.
