He stepped into the room and looked around carefully, frowning at the mess, and the long ago dried stains.

Given their prior foe attacked from above, Sturgis makes sure he looks upwards as he looks about the room as well.

 

"Well, this isn't ominously grisly, at all..."  Sturgis mutters.

Janalyth finds a secret door on the north wall.  The eastern segment.

 

Sturgis realizes that this room seems to be dedicated to the Thassilonian Sin of Wrath.

"Oh, well isn't this interesting" he said as he moved over to study the secret door. checking around the perimeter with both his eyes, and his fingers to try and find how it opens. "Perhaps whomever destroyed this place knew nothing of what it concealed?'

"I believe opening that may bring the ancient Thassilonian devotion to Wrath upon us.  Do be very careful when you open that.  I am unsure what, if anything, that would cause."

Janalyth takes the direction of Ma'alik.

You leave the room and focus on the door immediately to the east, the last one in the end of this hallway.

 

Unfortunately, the door has a superior lock on it which is also Arcane Locked.

It is beyond the skill of Janalyth to open.

After 2 minutes of examination, Janalyth doesn't find any traps...

Do you want to use one charge of the Chime of Opening?

Or, do you want to spend the time to try to forcibly open the door (or hack it to pieces?)

The door is stout wood bound in iron.

We will move on to the next door in line in this hall. If the door is locked (and warded) then it should be safe from our point of view. Is anyone making the area? We should note to come back to it at some point.

Sturgis does not have any chalk with him, nor any writing utensils.  He's making mental notes of where we've been, but probably not entirely accurate.

Janalyth examines the next door.  It is unlocked and untrapped.

He opens it, revealing the following scene:

 

Shockingly graphic depictions of orgies with all manner of creatures decorate the walls of this chamber.  Five humanoid skeletons lie in a sorry state on separate biers in the walls.  Although the bodies appear human, the skulls are those of some monstrous creature.  A pile of bloody bones and feathers is all that is left of a recently killed creature.

 

 From the square where the 6 is, you see a confusing sight.

A creature that is an apparent mockery of human form:  From the thighs to the shoulders, a beautiful female body.  That is where the attraction ends:  The knees and legs are hinged backward, the hands are oversized ending in fingers tipped with vicious claws, and the head is monstrous, with an oversized maw full of bloody teeth.  It looks at the group of you with a sense of hunger and delight...

 

Roll initiative...She is supernaturally quick: She got a 25.

The creature walks toward Janalyth like it is going to plant a seductive kiss. At the last moment, opening its maw for a fearsome bite.

 

19+3=22 to hit.

4 damage, and I need a Will saving throw

It is in the doorway, so those 3 spots can melee with it, but the two side positions attacking around the corner suffer cover -4. And decide who is north, south, east, northeast or southeast of Janalyth.

      This was my entry for the Quarterly Bones Reaper Fan Facebook Painting Contest.
      The Angel of Shadow.  She was good enough for an Honorable Mention (Thanks Reaper Matt)!
      For the prior contest, I liked how people were getting interesting light effects by using a black backdrop, so I tried that.
      Another reason I wanted to do it was to see if I could put her on a standard gaming base, supported by a rod painted black to fade into the backdrop, to give her a good illusion of flying.
      Also, this was my first attempt at Monochrome.  My final idea was to do a weapon swap to a wand (A cross-looking weapon from the BONES 3 Weapon Sprue), and sculpted my take on Acid Arrow, painting it green as the only color on the model, like those stunning black and white photos with colored flowers, etc.  I would say I'm a much better painter than sculptor
       
      Her paints used
       
      As time wore down, I had to abandon thoughts of OSL, so I made it seem like her lantern had died out and the spell didn't cast much light.
       
      Here are some other photos against an out-of-focus rug to show some tighter details.
      I tried to put some texture into the fabric of her dress, which was another first.
       
      C&C Welcome!

      A little more than 48 hours left for this one, I think it looks really cool.

      Kamigakari: God Hunters is a tabletop role-playing game set in modern-day Japan that combines centuries of Japanese mythology with a modern-day setting and urban fantasy action. You play as a God Hunter, a being wielding supernatural strength, magical abilities, and reality-warping spiritual powers. Your mission is to protect an unsuspecting populace from evil beings known as Aramitama, and to prevent the supernatural from leaking into the public eye.
      Originally, the game was released in Japan by Arclight Games on November 2013 as Legendary Arms RPG Kamigakari, to great popularity. In January 2017, a text-only fan translation appeared on the internet, exposing Kamigakari to the attention of English-speaking RPG fans world wide, and creating a thriving fanbase that continues to grow to this day!
      Serpent Sea Games is a team of experienced RPG translation and development professionals, including the creator of the fan translation, who have licensed Kamigakari from the creators at Arclight Games for publication in English and want to bring the game officially to Western audiences.
        But we need your help to bring this book into existence!
      The Game
      The world of Kamigakari features a distinctly seinen action anime  and style to it. With crazy abilities and flashy powers, it's an over-the-top world where you can battle kaijus, giant robots, gods and demons all under the same umbrella. The system is designed to keep interactions as simple and intuitive as possible, for an easy pick-up-and-play. Kamigakari splits its play up into "scenes", which are short, episodic and will often split the focus onto individual players. It's a different experience compared to western systems that often assume the party is always together, which allows for more varied and engaging character focus and development.
      So what is a God Hunter? A God Hunter is a person who, through one means or another, has gained supernatural powers by possessing a shard of a legendary weapon, relic, suit of armor, or maybe even the crystallized soul of a legendary hero. These powers can be anything from a master of the sword or magic, transforming hero, a living avatar of flame, or the ultimate hacker. Instead of a familiar class-based system, Kamigakari uses its own character generation called Styles, which lets you mix and match your power sets to create a gun-slinging samurai, a chainsaw-wielding magical girl, a hacker who codes his magic into existence, or a hunter who stalks his victims through the shadows.
      And it's not just limited to your class: weapons and gear are utilized under the Arms system, a mechanic where a base weapon is upgraded over time by using materials or spending gold. Two basic swords, in the hands of two different god hunters, can end up very different weapons after extensive modification!
      An average God Hunter on a normal day. Does being a God Hunter mean that you hunt gods? Of course it does! With concepts rooted in Shintoism and traditional Japanese folklore, a God Hunter is tasked with tracking down dangerous beings known as Aramitama - a dark god that is born and grows in power by devouring the souls of its victims. Aramitama come in many forms - from recognizable Japanese icons like oni and tengu, mythical beings like the Pegasus or Griffin, to eldritch monstrosities made of gnashing teeth and glowing orbs. Upon defeating an Aramitama, God Hunters can use their remains to create stronger Regalia - magical weapons and equipment, in order to face even even more powerful Aramitama. It's not just a fun gameplay loop, either: These creatures threaten the sanctity of innocents and the world in their lust to reach their ultimate form, the Avatar of Ruin, a true god of destruction capable of ending the world. It's up to the God Hunters to prevent that!
      An Aramitama awakens. Kamigakari utilizes the unique Numen Dice pool. Numen Dice are resource wherein you roll a set of dice and use it to pay for abilities or change the outcome of a roll. There's many ways change, swap and spend dice. Players must be careful how they manage their Numen Pool to both survive the battle and save the perfect set of Numen Dice to activate their ultimate abilities!
      We'd like to support this game far into the future, and plan on translating and releasing supplements if financially viable. Arclight Games has also requested the creation of original content exclusive to the western release, but that can probably wait until we have a few expansion books finished, we're only mentioning it now in the interests of full transparency.

      Seen this one over on the Paizo blog page. For fans of Seoni, the iconic sorcerer class in Pathfinder. Love that there is a unpainted version & it's based off the 1st edition artwork.
       
      The unpainted version is a $99 dollar pledge.
