Garm briefly staggered and cursed as the bullets of magical energy slammed into him, causing him to see stars. His concentration wavered for a moment as the severity of his injuries registered somewhere at the back of his mind, but he managed to maintain the spell. Staring straight at the bugbear mage, he grunted: "Oh... yes...I ...do!"
before finally releasing the accumulated magical energy that would form a gateway to the Elemental Plane of Earth and hopefully allow help to arrive from the other side.
Behind the bugbear, the flagstones on the floor of the tower suddenly split and broke apart with a grinding crack as a hulking mass of moving rock and earth suddenly emerged from the keep's foundations. The creature was about 4 ft tall and resembled a large lumpy boulder possessing at least three or four limbs, but it was difficult to discern its anatomy clearly. Garm's eyes widened at the success of his spell, then called out to the creature in Terran: "O Undroth, if you are willing to help us, please push the mage in front of you down the hole, but be careful! If that doesn't work, pummel him with your fists!"
At Garm's words, the moving rock creature suddenly accelerated and plowed into the back of the bugbear, attempting to push it down the magical pit on top of the minotaur. Garm himself took the opportunity to retrieve and reload his heavy crossbow, training it on the bugbear mage.
- Actions/Rolls |
Free Action: Concentration check to maintain hold on Summon Monster spell: 28 (http://www.myth-weavers.com/showthread.php?p=11866862#post11866862). Complete casting Summon Monster 2 on Y18, causing a Small Earth elemental to appear. This elemental will then attempt to perform a Bull Rush combat manoeuver pushing the bugbear 5ft backwards: 16 (http://www.myth-weavers.com/showthread.php?p=11842773#post11842773, but note I failed to consider the -1 penalty for size difference in my original roll of 17)
As the elemental possesses the Improved Bull Rush feat, this does not result in an AoO.
Swift Action: Speak to the Earth Elemental in Terran.
Move Action : Retrieve and reload crossbow.
