Squish, went the gorbel's eye as the Lumina poked it. It garbled something incoherent at the Lumina and let go of Lumori, then attempted to beat a hasty retreat, but for naught, it was shot down by one or more of the party's archers. The other gorbel, she kicked with such force off of Lumori that the red ball actually exploded against a wall harmlessly. Must have been a sharp nook or cranny.
The chaos ended rather abruptly.
Meleana's arrow pierced Bob's nipple, and sank into his heart. Bob died, though he remained standing frozen several moments before face-planting in the corridor.
Melior's missiles made quick work of the remaining red-globe malcontents, though the creatures' explosion did do (ooc: 2 dam to Ardhalas, 3 to Kismet, and 1 managed to explode far enough away from anyone in the room.)
There was quite a big mess, but no adversaries left for the moment. Another gorbel explosion sounded suddenly, and everyone looked about, but it seemed that this one came from the "Teleportation Chamber" next door.
The "Activity Room" meanwhile, was an otherwise sterile obstacle course of weird objects. The room was huge and somewhat elliptical in shape. Many mysterious contraptions and metallic gadgets and devices, lined the walls and contours of the room. A series of weird "magical glyphs and messages" revealed to Thorgir such strange plaques as, "exercise cycle", "virtual track", "weight-lifting station", and even a small rectangular glass screen in a wall at eye level, which stated "energy boosts". Behind the glass sat a row of glass vials.
Another strange metallic construct that mildly resembled a humanoid figure, stood in a corner unmoving. For arms, it had gleaming scythes, and its legs featured wheel-like constructs. The body was somewhat rectangular, and its "head" was simply a squarish afterthought in its creation. Some sort of primitive golem? It was labeled "battle-bot".
All was quiet as the companions took stock of the situation and recuperated from injury.
Then another crashing sound, as they realized the far-hall with the ninety-degree turn from where Bob and his Red Army had emerged, had collapsed in on itself. It suddenly seemed to the companions that their options on where to "go" next, were limited now.
