Violet notes that the creature looks like it is made of dead flesh. She casts Moonbolt: a blast of chill white light emanates from her outstretched palms, bracketing the creature and silhouetting it. As the light fades away, the creature remains, apparently unaffected. Violet moves through the door and gets a swipe from one of the creature's limbs: AC33 hits for 13 damage. She continues into the room along the right hand wall and climbs almost to ceiling height, looking for other foes. The creature with its two front pincery arms around Breg's middle throws him on its back where another oddly placed pincered arm grabs him. Its legs are now free and it scuttles 10 feet up the wall with Breg on its back. Breg tries to Teleport but the spell fails. "Dammit," he says. Troll moves into the room and hits the creature with Acidic Splatter. He takes a risk of potentially hitting Breg but the acid hits the creature. AC29 hits for 26 dmg. Lionel moves in and shoots the creature with a single arrow. AC38 hits the creature solidly for 11 damage. Rowaine doublemoves into the room. Calico turns into an eagle and flies into the room, circling towards the creature, then casts Spiritjaws. Translucent, reptilian jaws streak out and join the grapple. The initial attack hits for 3 damage and attempts to start a grapple which fails. The hooded figure moves to the side of the room.

Violet keeps an eye on the hooded figure. It extendeds its arm, stroking the books as it walks past. She climbs higher and looks for entrances or holes that the creature might be moving towards. She sees none, although much of the corners of the room are covered in large cobwebs. She doesn't see any other creatures. She casts Poisoned Thorns on herself. Black glistening thorns burst from her skin. Then she flies closer. The creature scuttles up to the ceiling, turns over and crawls onto the ceiling with Breg still firmly in its grasp on its back. It pokes its bottom out at those on the floor below and squirts masses of sticky webs, enveloping Rowaine, Lionel and Troll who all fail their reflex saves and become stuck fast. Breg breaks the grapple and falls to the floor, taking 3 damage. He stands up and shakes his head. Troll Dimension Jaunts up into the free air, then flies towards the centre of the room. Lionel fullattacks with his bow: AC37 hits for 15 + 5 frost, AC34 hits for 14 + 5 frost, nat1 misses. Rowaine takes a full-round action to break free of the webs. Calico's Spiritjaws attacks the creature, AC34 hits for 8 dmg but its grapple check fails. Second attack AC21 hits for 6 dmg and its grapple check also fails. Calico casts Flame Strike on the creature. The creature and its surrounding area in a 10 foot radius are enveloped in flame that rains from above! The creature is blackened but seems unharmed. Breg is caught in the conflagration, but evades the heat and is unharmed… but the books on the shelves burst into flame! Breg and Rowaine take 2 fire damage (any to the others?) and some of the webs clear. "A little care, please," Breg says. "That almost got me!" Calico circles, looking at the creature. He thinks it is a construct, but cannot communicate the fact. The robed creature continues moving around the walls.

"Rowaine, is it evil?" Breg asks. "Don't think so," Rowaine replies. She thinks. "There are very few undead that aren't." Violet casts Kelpstrand at the creature. The seaweed falls short. She flies away, but in range of the creature's limbs. AC27 hits for 17 dmg. The thorns erupting from Violet's skin deeply scratch the creature's limb and green ichor weeps from the wounds, but it doesn't seem to notice. Violet continues flying. The creature releases its grasp on the ceiling, dropping and flipping. It falls to the ground and crushes Breg under its huge mass. AC21 hits for 14 damage. The fall doesn't seem to hurt it. Breg is freed from the webs but can only move into more webs. He casts Recitation and succeeds on his concentration check. All are affected by the burst. He then readies his mace. Troll flies and shoots the creature with acid but misses. Lionel is still immobile; he shoots around a bookcase: AC30 hits for 13 + 3 frost damage, ACnat1 misses, AC25 hits for 16 + 5 frost damage, ACnat20 hits for 16 + 3 frost damage. Rowaine moves around a bookcase towards the creature, fighting through webs. The fire spreads, causing 3 damage to those nearby (Breg and Rowaine) (any more?) and clearing more webs. Calico's Spiritjaws attack the creature twice: AC26 hits for 8 damage and the grapple check fails, AChit for 5 damage and the grapple check succeeds. Calico circles then closes, finally casting Blinding Spittle when the way is clear. The mucus flies true and blinds the creature.
