The new and improved Rowan Grey

"Recording podcasts is the worst thing that's ever happened to any person on the planet! It goes: Jesus on the cross, and then podcasters! It's like, these fuckers are like, 'Oh, here's a planning episode. Let me talk shit about this for nine pages on the comments!' or, 'Oh, my God. Here they go, into the fuckin' Fennekin room they didn't plan.' AUGH! WE WERE THE FOURTH, FIFTH, SIXTH, SEVENTH, AND EIGHTH CROSS!" ~ Tim Lanning, having quite enough, thank you very much

"I built this character for speed, and ass eatin'." ~ Nika Howard

Long Story

The Tower of Grey has just found their friend Eckhart Dayhammer being attacked by a horde of hooded figures. But before that! They all meet up again at the bottom of the Pit! Skud is excited about the bones! Anyway, leading up to the fight against Dayhammer, are a slew of dead hooded figures. It seems that the paladin did not give them an easy victory. Toby initiates a fight by casting Polymorph on Dayhammer, turning him into a wolf polar bear crocodile! This has the benefit of giving him all the hit points he lost by being hurt. It also has the benefit of starting a fight! The creatures are scary, and they have an aura of necrotic-ness about them. When close by, victims lose 5 necrotic damage from each of them. Also, something bad happens if you meet their eyes, so you must look away, though that imposes disadvantage to attacks against them. So it's a mess. There is a lot of damage that happens. The crocodile-Eckhart Dayhammer bites a bunch of dudes. After the hooded figures are all dead, Toby ends the spell so that Dayhammer can be a real boy again. He's not in a good way, mostly due to the fact that he is missing his right arm up to the elbow! Skud stops his bleeding, and then Rowan casts Cure Wounds to heal him for 14 hp.
