[OOC: khaboom Hard to say for sure, but sizing it up, the bear might be a bit big for the doorway into the main pit. dumfis Yes, you do sense that there is something more to the dagger than just the silver... All: I will be posting again soon in response to the recent replies.]
Lorendiac's stone smashes into the bear's thick layer of tough fur *thack!* And Lazarus's arrow hits the bear *zip*, as he darts back to the door.
[Missile Weapons] [Lazarus Arrow: [5,2]+22=29 L2=25 on DEX: Hit [5,1]+25=31 damage] [Lorendiac stone: [3,3] Doubles [2,5]: 13+15=28: Hit [4,5,3]+16=28 damage]
[OOC: Please subtract one ammunition from your character sheets] [XP is not awarded for Missile saving rolls, per T&T 5.x]
Lorendiac is still in position to cover anyone near the bear. And as the bear is temporarily disoriented, Dumfis, with his readied javelin and Iulius, with sword in hand, both flank each side of the polar bear giving the others a chance to make for the door...
Unfortunately the bear, somewhat enraged, is not amused by the Funklebun's cooing, but it doesn't hurt to coo with a smile.
[OOC: Does everyone try to exit the room and barricade the door? Perhaps some magic could help? The bear may close in next round, making missile attacks more difficult. Once engaged SPD saving rolls will likely needed to disengage.]
"My friends, if we can all hurry through the door, I can use my 'Lock Tight' spell to shut it to any who would try to open it!" Telfur shouts as he backs through the doorway. "Even if this snow bear should try to tear his way through, it will surely slow him down and we could pick him off easily while he tries to do so"
Everyone (minus the bear) dashes their way just outside the door, which is ready to be closed. In a flurry of looking about, the only immediate items in sight are the mangled skeletons of past adventurers and their gear, which could be used to block the door... though the door does also have a lock, normally locked from the inside...
Looking back, the bear roars again! It then steps down from the block and begins to pick up speed as it rushes for the door...
Telfur swiftly closes the door and casts a 'Lock Tight' spell, that he had been preparing for the last few minutes, on it. He then steps back quickly just in case the great ursine creature should burst through it.
Telfur's spell sets into the door's lock with a *click*, just as the bear crashes into it from the other side *bang*... but the door holds. Funklebun stands ready, along with Lorendiac who keeps his staff at hand. The bear continuously roars and claws at the wood of the door from the other side...
After a few minutes the clawing stops, and the sound like the gentle crystallization of ice can be heard for a few moments. Then the room is quiet once again.
The main room still consists of of the remaining 3 doors on each side.
