Roikos looks approvingly at Miles' approach with the sword. Through smashed face and bars, "He does seem rather ungrateful."
The Cleric will attempt to cast Light
on the hairy beast's arm if
Mile's attempt to free him fails.
Okay, based on this declaration of actions, Roikos will attempt to cast a spell once Miles failed to free him. Except, the cleric is grappled.....
Roikos speaks the mystic words, but when he tries to make the sacred signs, he fails. The spell is not lost, but the action is wasted.
Initiative stays the same....
Monster & Alphonse, then Miles, then Roikos & Jahan
Monster tries to rend Roikos! D20=3.
The monster tries to rip Roikos apart with its bare hands but fails to get a proper hold on him. Roikos is still grappled though.
Alphonse tries to poke the beast with his staff. D20=2. But hits the bars of the cage.
Miles runs forward and tries to pry an arm off the cleric. D20=4.
Zoinks! The beast has slippery fur.
Jahan tries a called shot @ -4, plus +1 for close range. D20=7-3=4. The bolt strikes the southern wall.
(Roikos is in trouble, so I am using DM fiat to burn a LUCK POINT.)
Roikos has a moment of absolute calm, drops his arms, then suddenly sweeps them up, breaking free of the creature's grasp.
Roikos and Miles stumble back from the cage. Alphonse steps away. The four men watch as the creature goes berserk in its cage. The bars still hold.
In the distance, the noontime bells chime throughout the city.
