Alright Marivhon, you smash the halberd into the scorpion. You definitely do damage, but instead of ichor oozing out, instead you see steam shoot out from the exoskeleton! Then the massive scorpion claw nabs you and pinches you for 6 hp. You're trapped in the scorpion's claw; the tail gets ready to strike. The whole thing remains motionless other than that though. That's when the ghouls creep out from the darkness.
There are four small ghouls. Actually, they look like undead tinker gnomes; bloody, ripped overalls with a little tinker's hammer, big gnome nose half-rotting off, crazy undead gnome hair. They shriek in glee. Marivhon, the gnomes rush you. Hit you with claws and hammers for another 14 hp, plus make two saves vs. paralyzation.
Guys, Marivhon's trapped, he fell into the gnome ghouls' evil plan. Can you save your monk friend before it's too late?
