DM Devon's RotRL aka "The Heroes of Sandpoint"

Game Master PirateDevon

Something sinister is happening in Sandpoint and only our heroes can stop it. See what happens when a group loses DM after DM and yet the heroes forge on!


7,651 to 7,674 of 7,674 << first < prev | 144 | 145 | 146 | 147 | 148 | 149 | 150 | 151 | 152 | 153 | 154 | next > last >>

Bard (Arcane Duelist) 3/UC Rogue 3 | AC 22/14/18, hp 34/38; 10/10 Bardic; Effect: None

"Right. Ambush it is. Shalelu, you and Vidar take up a hidden position over there. Pinocchio, you and I will take up a hidden position over there. Kithian and Sayniek, you wait for them to enter the clearing. We will wait to see if Sayniek can talk any sense into them and will attack with ranged fire if necessary. Quickly thrown together, but this may be nothing, after all."

Two rounds to get into position allows us a couple of tries to force open the trap. Failing that, we will have to release the feline after the combat has been settled.

Camillo tries to assist the barbarian in opening the trap.

Strength aid: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (9) + 3 = 12


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 6

Hmmm, draw them and and strike from two places at once, like an anvil and two hammers.
Could work, unless the hounds scent the hidden teams out and go for them instead of the bait.

Despite the possibility of failure, Vidar nods to Shalelu and heads to a good place to launch a sneak attack from.


Kithian, Cam and Shalelu manage to pry the trap open while Shalelu talks t ot the cat, He says they are large then men not like giants but ogres? I think he means ogre-kin. He has been running for some time. He seems to weak to move quickly if we want to run unless he is carried...

There are, luckily, a fair number of older growth trees and thick shrubbery. The clearing is circular and the dogs seem to be headings from the the north west.

Climb checks for those who want to go up. Stealth checks from everyone who wants to hide. Let me know if there is any other prep you want to do OR if you decide to run Survival checks might be able to obscure the area against tracking...


AC 13/11/11 | 2/5/6 | HP 40 | Init +2, Percep. +10 CMD 13 Slots: | 1st-8 2nd-7 3rd-4 | Arcane Bolt 9/day

Pinocchio hides in the brush

stealth: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (7) + 12 = 19

He then weaves a image of the cat in the trap, struggling to get free.
Cast Silent Image
He then adds the appropriate noises.
Cast Ghost Sound to enhance the illusion


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 3/UC Rogue 3 | AC 22/14/18, hp 34/38; 10/10 Bardic; Effect: None

"Shalelu, tell the cat I will carry it if necessary. I would prefer your bow was available." He sings a soothing song and strokes the wild animal's back, causing some of its wounds to close up.

Cure Light Wounds: 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (1) + 3 = 4

He reaches toward the cat in an offer to pick it up,waiting to see if it allows. One way or the other, he heads to the side of the clearing to join the wooden boy.

Stealth: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (18) + 12 = 30

Once his hands are free, he readied his bow for an ambush shot.


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 6

Vidar motions for Shalelu to climb the tree.
"Even should they spot me, they may very well focus so exclusively on me that they do not see you."

Stealth: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (10) + 5 = 15


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/4 - Paladin/2 [HP 61/61; AC27,T13,FF26; F+12,R+7,W+11; Per+7; Init +1(roll twice)]

Sayniek, knowing that she has no skills in either stealth or climbing, instead stands on the side of the clearing near a tree where she will hopefully not be seen when the ogres arrive.

Stealth: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (20) + 1 = 21 <-- well she is quiet, and wasted a really good roll


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 3/UC Rogue 3 | AC 22/14/18, hp 34/38; 10/10 Bardic; Effect: None

I expected her to not even try, to stand and try to negotiate when they arrived.


Male Half Orc Barbarian 45/ Oracle 1, Perception +7, Darkvision, Fort +7/ Ref +1/ Will +2, Init +4, AC 18, HP :68

Kithian grins and walks to the middle of the clearing and hoist the trap over his shoulder and draws his rather large sword.


Shalelu gestures to the bard and utters some words and the cat moves forward to accept the healing, content to move off under its own power once healed. The cat is the size of a cougar it wouldn't WANT to be carried but with the healing it is good to go

For her own part the ranger actually pats the barbarian on the shoulder as she steps into the brush as she moves about the site with a branch and some various plant materials apparently obscuring the sent of the dogs, It is true. Vidar. They will certainly see you before me. The elf winks at the wizard as she seems to almost magically blend in to the brush, obscured from all but the most focused of gazes.

With the party obscured it just a matter of minutes. The barking gets louder and louder until a large "man" leadinga pack of chained dogs breaks into the clearing. The dogs seems very disoriented and pull in a myriad of directions. The large human man, dressed in soiled common clothes, armor and furs has almost orange skin and strong non human shapes to his face and black hair.

Sixing up Kithian the man looks around and sees the empty trap, You stealing my catch?

Group is up. Actions resolved in the order they are posted...

ummm, I don't mean to be a pain but...


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 3/UC Rogue 3 | AC 22/14/18, hp 34/38; 10/10 Bardic; Effect: None

Camillo holds his action, waiting to give Kithian a chance to talk to the newcomer. However, he has a readied bow and a spell on his lips, waiting to see which will be more useful.


Male Half Orc Barbarian 45/ Oracle 1, Perception +7, Darkvision, Fort +7/ Ref +1/ Will +2, Init +4, AC 18, HP :68

Kithian grins at the newcomer and shakes gis head. "Not your catch today. I think you and your girlfriends should run on back to what ever rock you crawled out from and try to catch something a little more your speed...like a skunk or maybe a blind possum. If not, things around here may have to get as ugly as your reflection."

Intimidate: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (15) + 12 = 27


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/4 - Paladin/2 [HP 61/61; AC27,T13,FF26; F+12,R+7,W+11; Per+7; Init +1(roll twice)]

Sayniek chuckles softly as Kithian uses his most eloquent barbarian diplomacy in an attempt to woo the hunter.


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 6

Hmmmph, I shall give them one chance, precisely ONE, and then I shall introduce them to the concept of horribly fiery death at the hands of an irritable north-man."


Right I mis-typed but I was accounting for your effect Pinnochio. He sees barbarian standing over his "full" trap which is why there is an assumption of theft...

The ogrekin rocks on his heels slightly suddenly unsure of himself, Look here that cat is uh...trouble...but...if you gunna get rid of it thats fine yeah? I just don't uh...want it around no more.


Male Half Orc Barbarian 45/ Oracle 1, Perception +7, Darkvision, Fort +7/ Ref +1/ Will +2, Init +4, AC 18, HP :68

The half orc grins a toothy and humorless smile and shakes his head again. "Listen up ya ugly bastage, the cat is going with me. But you are going to tell me why you don't want it around any more, and what happened to its master. If you dont, well then I guess I am just going to have to nail your dork to that tree over yonder and beat you to fargin death with your icehole girlfriends."


The ogrekin blanches at the half-orc but summong a modicum of spine, This is my family's territory and we kill who we want. That cat's master is me and mine's. I don't want trouble but I ain't gunna be threatened.

Its clear he is on the precipice of dropping the leashes on his dogs or turning to go...


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/4 - Paladin/2 [HP 61/61; AC27,T13,FF26; F+12,R+7,W+11; Per+7; Init +1(roll twice)]

Sayniek, seeing the impasse between the two bastions of diplomacy, steps forward from where she was standing beside a tree.

Perhaps I can assist in this discussion. You seem to have met my friend Master Darlok. Currently he is using his best manners. I should let you know that the last person who decided that facing Master Darlok with steel rather than words is still attempting to find several of his limbs.

She pauses for effect for a moment.
The choice is yours. Walk away with your limbs and a slightly damaged honor. Or crawl away with no legs or honor.

Diplomacy : 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (15) + 10 = 25 <-- if Intimidate is more appropriate, subtract 1


The dogs pulse and pull at the ogrekin and his eyes widen at the arrival of the newcomer. Whether it was the surprise of the arrival or a sudden instinct to flee, regardless the creature drops the chains on his dogs and turns to run back the way he came...

Group up. 5 large dogs, one running ogrekin. Dogs are coming 3 at Kithian, 2 at Sayniek...


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 3/UC Rogue 3 | AC 22/14/18, hp 34/38; 10/10 Bardic; Effect: None

I don't believe I rolled initiative yet: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 3 = 9


Male Half Orc Barbarian 45/ Oracle 1, Perception +7, Darkvision, Fort +7/ Ref +1/ Will +2, Init +4, AC 18, HP :68

Kithian frowns as he readies his sword. He hated killing animals espescially good dogs just doing what they do.

Power attack: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (11) + 10 = 21
Damage: 2d4 + 13 ⇒ (1, 3) + 13 = 17


AC 13/11/11 | 2/5/6 | HP 40 | Init +2, Percep. +10 CMD 13 Slots: | 1st-8 2nd-7 3rd-4 | Arcane Bolt 9/day

Pinocchio puppets his kitty illusion so that it seems to break free from the trap and charge after the Ogrekin!
Let's hope that draws some away...


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 6

Hmmph, I will not deplete my spells if this is all we face.

Instead of using magic, Vidar aims carefully at one of the dogs charging Kithian.
Attack: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (18) + 6 = 24
Damage: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (6) + 1 = 7

Naturally the larger group goes for the bigger meal. Or have they perhaps mistaken the smell and intend to try and mate?
