So Marrelina slipped into the Fallen Tower's cellar again, and this time she met a few of these mutant scorpions.
It was a funny skirmish. Marrelina couldn't kill the scorpions; whether she was using her Devil Claw gauntlets, her Yellow Rose gauntlets with the +3 Melee Attack Bonus or the kama with the +3 Enhancement and 1-6 Electrical damage, what little damage made it through their Damage Resistance/Reduction was quickly eaten up by their Regeneration. And the scorpions couldn't kill Marrelina, neither; she's immune to all poisons, and what little damage made it through her
Damage Resistance and Damage Reduction was quickly eaten up by her
Regeneration. (Her Barely Injured status there is from her accidentally hitting the fire trap
while she was leaving the cellar. Yes, the one that does 100-odd Fire Damage when you step on it. She's just that tough, okay?)
So after about ten minutes of watching Marrelina dancing with the scorpions and not really going anywhere, I finally said, "Aw, to hell with it" and left...but not before Marrelina helped herself to a couple of the treasure chests. Hey, it's not ninja-looting if the enemies are well aware of your presence and
actively trying to stab you while you're kicking open the treasure chest, right?
So then, after leaving those two immortals among the kitchen staff to handle the sudden influx of mutant scorpions into their kitchen, Marrelina went over her questionably obtained spoils:
Hmm. Really spiffy shop food there.
More really spiffy shop food!
Why am I sensing a dragon-slaying theme to the Fallen Tower loot?Even more
spiffy shop food? Hell, no!
This ring is too spiffy to be shop food! I'm keeping this.
(Marrelina still has it, too.
So who wants to come along on a Fallen Tower raid some time?
