Male Human Paladin 3, HP: 26/26, AC: 16(18), Fort: +6, Ref: +3, Will: +6 (Horse HP:17 /17)

Perception: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (18) + 2 = 20
Initiative: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (8) + 3 = 11

Already wary of potential treachery, Vorik catches a glimpse of the shaman as he turns the corner. Giving a quick shout of warning, the paladin raises his shield and draws his weapon as he moves in front of Mikmek to block him from Tartuk's view.

Vorik will move to try and block Tartuk's line of sight on Mikmek. There's no grid numbers on the map, so just move him to the opposite side of Mikmek from where he is now.

Oh yeah! Forgot Coordinates.. I'll get that up in a minute

>map repost>


Male Halfling Sorceror (Crossblood [Orc]/[Elemental(Primal)] & Tattooed Sorceror) 3

Perception: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (10) + 8 = 18.

Still somewhat wary after the party's thoroughly lukewarm reception earlier, Hrafen keeps looking around, and spots Tartuk at the last moment.

Surprise Round:

Hrafen deftly vaults into the saddle of his trusty riding dog, hunkering down behind the pommel.


Male Halfling Sorceror (Crossblood [Orc]/[Elemental(Primal)] & Tattooed Sorceror) 3

It would probably help if I actually did an initiative roll, too ;-)

Initiative: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (15) + 9 = 24.


Female Half-Elf Ranger (Beastmaster/Trapper) : 3

Perception : 1d20 + 13 ⇒ (9) + 13 = 22
Initiative : 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (8) + 3 = 11

Spying the Shaman rush around the corner I gasp and quickly draw "GoldFire" and get ready for battle.


Male Varisian Human Fighter (Weapon Master) 1 / Bard 2

Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (8) + 6 = 14
Initiative: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (20) + 2 = 22

Round 1

Hrafen
Vladimir
Friendly Kobolds
Tartuk +2 enemy
Jaestra
Vorik


Male Halfling Sorceror (Crossblood [Orc]/[Elemental(Primal)] & Tattooed Sorceror) 3

Round 1:

Hrafen spurs Archibald forward (Moving to I13), and casts a spell, attempting to liquify Tartuk and the priestess.

Acidic Burning Hands: 5d4 + 10 ⇒ (1, 4, 2, 4, 4) + 10 = 25 Acid damage. Reflex DC 16 for half.


Male Varisian Human Fighter (Weapon Master) 1 / Bard 2

Vladimir charges toward the purple skinned kobold, ripping through the peace bond on his blade with a slash at Tartuk as he completes his movement.

Charge to (I,15). As Tartuk has not gone yet, attack is vs. flat footed AC. Vladimir's AC = 16 for the round.

Charging Sword Attack: 1d20 + 8 + 2 ⇒ (16) + 8 + 2 = 26 (charge)
Damage: 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 3 = 5


GM immediate narrative actions 1/day (0/1 remaining)

Round 1 (kobolds)

The priestess and Tartuk shriek and curse as the acidic spray envelopes them. Tartuk shields himself as best he can with the sleeve of his over-sized robes.
The priestess howls in pain as the seared scales of her exposed face and neck steams... she falls.

The shaman has no chance to stop Vladimir's strike. Tartuk's sharp intake of breath suggests the blade pierced his hide.

saves:
Tartuk Ref: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (15) + 2 = 17
Priestess Ref: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6

Chief Fort: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (12) + 1 = 13

kobold grunts Fort: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6
kobold grunts Fort: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (10) + 2 = 12

The Sootscales begin to emerge from the smoke... most seem debilitated from involuntary violent coughs.

Mikmek yells for his allies to the south. He raises his spear and steps up next to Vorik, and they advance while readying their own.

Tartuk slinks back a few feet and after a split-second of hesitation, he growls and gestures toward Hrafen.
A pair of arcane bolts fly from his hand, and slam into Hrafen's chest.

force damage: 2d4 + 2 ⇒ (4, 2) + 2 = 8

The cloaked kobold by the cauldron rushes up next to the fallen priestess and hurls a vial. Already cringing in fear before he releases the vial, his throw is off by several feet. The vial bursts into flames just northwest of Mikmek and Vorik.

throw vial: 1d20 + 4 - 2 ⇒ (1) + 4 - 2 = 3
miss placement: 1d8 ⇒ 8

Remaining actions

Jaestra
Vorik


Female Half-Elf Ranger (Beastmaster/Trapper) : 3

I move up to Mikmek and stand beside him, drawing and nocking an arrow to "GoldFire's" string as I move. When I get next to him I nod and smile at him before releasing the string and letting the arrow fly in Tartuk's direction.

"GoldFire" Attack : 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (9) + 8 = 17
"GoldFire" Damage : 1d8 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15

Unlikely to hit, but worth a shot. It flies passed his head missing by inches :)


Male Human Paladin 3, HP: 26/26, AC: 16(18), Fort: +6, Ref: +3, Will: +6 (Horse HP:17 /17)

Hoping the shaman won't be able to easily get off another spell, Vorik moves up aiming a blow at the creatures midsection.

Move to H14
Attack Tartuk: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (11) + 8 = 19
Damage: 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6


GM immediate narrative actions 1/day (0/1 remaining)

Jaestra's arrow goes wide. Vorik sees a shimmering where his weapon makes contact, but it seems to have little (if any) effect on the shaman.

Round 2

Hrafen
Vladimir
Friendly Kobolds
Tartuk +1 enemy
Jaestra
Vorik


Female Half-Elf Ranger (Beastmaster/Trapper) : 3

I place another arrow to "GoldFire's" string and loose it at Tartuk.

"GoldFire" Attack : 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (16) + 8 = 24
"GoldFire" Damage : 1d8 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15

If Tartuk moves before my turn, I will move so that I am still within 30 feet of him. If he drops before then, I will just shoot at another enemy within 30 feet.


Male Varisian Human Fighter (Weapon Master) 1 / Bard 2

Vladimir moves to attack Tartuk again, entering a defensive stance as he swings.

Combat Expertise, Threatening Defender trait negates the penalty. Move to (H,16)

Attack: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (6) + 8 = 14
Damage: 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (8) + 3 = 11


Male Human Paladin 3, HP: 26/26, AC: 16(18), Fort: +6, Ref: +3, Will: +6 (Horse HP:17 /17)

Attack Tartuk: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (20) + 8 = 28
Confirm Critical Hit: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (8) + 8 = 16
Damage: 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

Disappointed by the effects of his previous strike, Vorik takes a little more time to aim Astridsonoir to a spot that he hopes is less protected by the shaman's armor and magic.


Male Halfling Sorceror (Crossblood [Orc]/[Elemental(Primal)] & Tattooed Sorceror) 3

Hrafen frowns, urges Archibald to step forward (5' step to H12), and then unleashes another blast of acid, catching the shaman and his other vertical ally...

Acidic Burning Hands: 5d4 + 10 ⇒ (4, 4, 3, 2, 1) + 10 = 24 Acid damage. Reflex DC 16 for half.


GM immediate narrative actions 1/day (0/1 remaining)

Seeing his new allies handling Tartuk with little difficulty, Mikmek commands his kobolds to protect the debilitated Sootscales...
1d20 + 2 ⇒ (14) + 2 = 16
1d20 + 2 ⇒ (19) + 2 = 21

Tartuk again shields himself from the majority of the spray, but his wild virility has diminished. Before Jaestra can loose her arrow, Astridsonoir slams into Tartuk's side... below the arm held up in defense.
He falls - folded in half... his last breaths wheeze through acid-burned holes.

Tartuk's cloaked ally - hideously burned by Hrafen, turns to run. He heads for the tunnel from which you entered. He stumbles and falls when struck by Jaestra's arrow.

Mikmek's mixed blood kobolds stand stunned at the quick work by their new leader's allies. Mikmek nods, and pokes the bodies with his spear.


Male Human Paladin 3, HP: 26/26, AC: 16(18), Fort: +6, Ref: +3, Will: +6 (Horse HP:17 /17)

Vorik nods with a grim sense of satisfaction as Tartuk crumples to the floor. Seeing the last traitor fall, Vorik turns to Mikmek and the remaining kobolds.

"Twice now we have put down the enemies of the Sootscale. Twice we have proven our honor in upholding our agreements. Twice we have destroyed those who would stand against justice and good."

He turns to Mikmek, looping Astridsonior back on his belt. "Twice we have asked for alliance with your people. If you bring no harm to our folk and agree to act within our laws as friends and allies you will be free to trade, live in peace, and have the protection of our banner. What say you?"


GM immediate narrative actions 1/day (0/1 remaining)

Mikmek nods "I say allies." ... he immediately turns in deference to Chief Sootscale.

The chief steps closer. "Allies, but not ruled. Peace, yes. Trade...?" This time the chief looks at Mikmek for moment before continuing. "If there is trade, it will be through Mikmek. We will not live within your lands, but will see you as ally. Graw-keh-mek... ally." He stows his spear awkwardly in his belt... apparently placing more meaning in Vorik's actions, and repeating them along with the Draconic phrase.

Draconic:

Acceptable outsider


Male Human Paladin 3, HP: 26/26, AC: 16(18), Fort: +6, Ref: +3, Will: +6 (Horse HP:17 /17)

Vorik gives Mikmek a hardy clap on the back and a large smile. Before giving the chief a respectful bow and warm smile of his own.

"Aye, 'tis a fine choice, and I'm proud to call Mikmek and the Sootscale friends and allies." He says, then adds with a hearty laugh. "Seems to me this new alliance and defeat of evil, calls for a bit of a celebration."

After rummaging in his pack for a few seconds he pulls out his flask filled with Oleg's ale.

"Lets share a bit of Master Oleg's ale to seal the bargain." He says taking a solid drink for himself before handing the flask to Mikmek and the Chief.


GM immediate narrative actions 1/day (0/1 remaining)

They both pour a solid gulp in their open mouths in turn, and nod. Chief Sootscale looks at the flask a moment, then hands it back.
"Good." He looks north to the cauldron alcove... "Losing Tartuk's tonic.... is not good. If he has the secret of it in what you take from him... We will reward you.. showing? the way."

Mikmek nods. "Yes. Tartuk's chamber is past the cage. What was his is yours."


Male Varisian Human Fighter (Weapon Master) 1 / Bard 2

Vladimir cocks his head at mention of Tartuk's tonic. "If you would, tell me, what exactly did this tonic do for your people? By all means, if we find anything of the sort, we would certainly share that information, it is just that Tartuk did not seem to have your tribe's best interests in mind." the swordsman says heading toward Tartuk's chamber.


Male Human Paladin 3, HP: 26/26, AC: 16(18), Fort: +6, Ref: +3, Will: +6 (Horse HP:17 /17)

Vorik nods his agreement with Vlad's statement and follows him into the shaman's chamber.

"Beware of traps." He says as they enter the shaman's cave. "Tartuk, didn't strike me as being one to leave his belongings unprotected." He adds while straining his eyes in the dimly lit cave to see anything that might be trouble.

Perception: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 = 5


Male Varisian Human Fighter (Weapon Master) 1 / Bard 2

Noting Vorik straining to see, combined with his own inability to see much, given the lack of light. Vladimir prepares to create a bit of magical light. "Just as a heads up for our friends who can see well in the dark, I am going to create a bit of light." Vladimir says to any kobolds who may be following in particular

Casting Light on the clasp of my cloak.

Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (7) + 6 = 13


Male Halfling Sorceror (Crossblood [Orc]/[Elemental(Primal)] & Tattooed Sorceror) 3

"Perhaps we should check the bodies first...?"


Female Half-Elf Ranger (Beastmaster/Trapper) : 3

I look from Hrafen, to the bodies to Mikmek and back, "Master Vormenghast, don't you think we should ask our new allies before we start looting corpses? They would probably be in more need of it than us anyway."


Male Halfling Sorceror (Crossblood [Orc]/[Elemental(Primal)] & Tattooed Sorceror) 3

Hrafen shrugs.

"Mikmek said what was his is ours; presumably that includes what he had on him...?"


GM immediate narrative actions 1/day (0/1 remaining)

Mikmek nods "All that was his is yours."

On Tartuk you find..:

several items which appear unaffected by the acid.

pair of bracers
a wand
a cold iron sickle

Tartuk's chamber looks like the lair of an insane devil-obsessed taxidermist. There is a wall of shelving filled with books - stuffed among gruesome rotting knick-knacks.

Vladimir:
You spot several books from Luftleitners Arcane Principles.. as well as a few other common arcane books.
*** *** ***
On a work table you find crumpled (likely failed) scrolls and a journal written in an uncommon tongue.
Hrafen:

The journal is written in halfling. It is Tartuk's diary, and a quick look suggest he had a hatred for kobolds. He was pushing them to fight so they would get killed.
For what its worth, further reading will likely shed more light.
There is a fly scroll tucked in the book.
*** *** ***
Along the eastern wall of the chamber, there are two piles of debris. You see some weapons, armor, shiny and/or metal bits. There is nothing of obvious worth at first glance, but they are big piles...


Female Half-Elf Ranger (Beastmaster/Trapper) : 3

I follow the others into the chamber once the bodies have been removed of valuables and have a look around.

Perception : 1d20 + 13 ⇒ (15) + 13 = 28


Male Halfling Sorceror (Crossblood [Orc]/[Elemental(Primal)] & Tattooed Sorceror) 3

Hrafen leafs through the journal.

"Interesting... It would appear that Tartuk hated kobolds, and was trying to get them to get themselves killed... Further reading may give me more information..."

Hrafen does a Detect Magic sweep of the items recovered from Tartuk, and of his chambers.
