First defence and last stand (Inactive)

Game Master Big OM

Manning the defences of Castle Firrine and surrounding lands in North-western Lastwall.

351 to 400 of 571 << first < prev | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | next > last >>

As Vaslo channels his primal powers the grass surrounding orcs and goblins grow and tries to catch the creatures, two orcs manages to escape the graps.

@ Sir Gerard - Of cause I was just thinking you didn't have the option to attack and excluded you because of that, feel free to take a move action.

All right from now in initiative order. What would Logen do charge or wait?


Goblin 1 save vs. entangle: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 = 5
Goblin 2 save vs. entangle: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (8) + 2 = 10
Orc 1 save vs. entangle: 1d20 ⇒ 6
Orc 2 save vs. entangle: 1d20 ⇒ 18
Orc 3 save vs. entangle: 1d20 ⇒ 19
Orc 4 save vs. entangle: 1d20 ⇒ 13

If he's smart he'd ready an action to attack if one gets to us this round, and protect Vaslo.

Logen readies an action to protect Vaslo or Darius from any enemy that might close in.

I am gmpcing Vaslo for this action.

Taking careful aim Vaslo fires an arrow at one of the orcs, which isn't affected by the spell. The arrow hits it mark and the orc falls to the ground.

The last orc is still unaffected by the spell.


Attack on Orc 2: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (19) + 3 = 22
Dmg: 1d8 ⇒ 8

Save Orc 3: 1d20 ⇒ 17


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 4

Hello all! I believe that is an excellent idea and Logen will be doing just that. He may be a hot headed reckless charger, but against that many orcs even he knows he's outmatched

I'm sorry I forgot that it was the goblins turn to act.

Both goblins try to escape from the grappling grass but fail. Deciding that it's in vain they take aim with their short bows and fire at Zeke and Logen hitting both. 2 damage each


Escape artist goblin 1: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (10) + 2 = 12
Escape artidt goblin 2: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3

Dmg: 1d4 ⇒ 2
Short bow at Logen: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (16) + 4 = 20
Dmg: 1d4 ⇒ 2

Gerard pulls back his bow, and fires at the orc that's not caught up in the spell.

Attack 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (17) + 2 = 19
Damage 1d8 ⇒ 2


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 4

Logen growls as the arrow makes contact, then crouches behind the hill so he has some cover.

Male Human Arcane Duelist 1, Init +3, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3, 17 AC, 14 Touch, 13 FF, Rapier +3 (1d6+2)

Darius keeps up his Performance of congradulating his allies on doing good in combat.

Please remember the +1 to your dice rolls during your turn. Since I started last turn, all of your attacks had a +1 to hit and to damage, so please remember it.

Sir Gerard's arrow graces the arm of the orc, but doesn't seem to do much harm.

The orc Orc 3 Sir Gerard hit moves towards you and is now 30 ft. away, but still 10 ft. within Vaslo's spell. One of the other orcs Orc 1 also moves closer to you and is now 45 ft away. The last orc flings a javelin at Vaslo, but misses.

Damage1d8 ⇒ 7

Edit: Crit Confirm1d20 + 1 ⇒ (16) + 1 = 17

Logen hits the orc straight in throat, the arrow piercing the larynx and the orc sinks to the ground blood streaming from its mouth and wound.

I assume you're targeting the closest orc, orc 3.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 4


Vaslo returns fire at the orc which flung a javelin at him, hitting it in the stomach, the beast roars in pain.

The goblins tries once again to escape the entangling grass and one of them succeeds. It moves 10 ft. to the left while the other fires yet again at Logen this time wounding his leg. 2hp

Male Human Arcane Duelist 1, Init +3, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3, 17 AC, 14 Touch, 13 FF, Rapier +3 (1d6+2)

Darius continues congradulating his allies with good shots, except for Sir Gerard, in which he says "Don't worry, Sir, you'll get him next time!" and "That was just a warning shot!"

I totally forgot the bardic performance again, please add one to my rolls.

The Elven magic seems to have lost it's grip on the orcs and they both close in on you struggling through the wild grass.

Orc 1 is now 15 ft. away and out of the spells aoe, while Orc 4 is 30 f.t away and within the spells effect.

Round 3 begin

Male Human Arcane Duelist 1, Init +3, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3, 17 AC, 14 Touch, 13 FF, Rapier +3 (1d6+2)

Darius continues his performance.

Finishing what he started last turn Vaslo fell the orc Orc 4 furthest away aided by Darius' inspiring performance.

The goblin already heading away Goblin 2 manages to evade the magic and continues to flee to the left reaching barely leaving the zone. Its companion Goblin 1 weaves itself out of the entangling grass and follows its companion 15 ft. to the left.

Sir Gerald patiently awaits the charge of the remaining orc. Darius Standing clear of a possible attacks continues to inspire the band of crusaders.

As expected the orc charges. When it reaches the intended target Sir Gerard steps forward and thrusts his blade into the chest of the orc, impaling it on the sword. The monster sinks lifeless to the ground.

All the orcs are down and the two goblins are fleeing, Logen your turn
Round 4 begin

Logen 21
Vaslo and Zeke 17
Goblins 15+

Goblin 1's Escape artist: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (16) + 3 = 19


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 4

"Chase em down with the horses, leave one alive!" Logen shouts as he charges directly at the goblins

How many feet away are the goblins from me?

72 feet to the one furthest away, so lets make it 75 for simplicity


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 4

Logen will do a full spring action to close the distance

@ Logen - Run action? Couldn't you move and then charge for a total of 90 ft.?

Vaslo yet again lets an arrow fly this time at the goblin furthest away, he finds his mark again. The goblin staggers on.

I know it's the goblins, now I just want to be sure I understnd Logen correct.


Vaslo firing at Goblin 2: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (16) + 4 = 20
Dmg.: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3
Goblin 1's save: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (10) + 2 = 12

Goblin 2 - 3 dmg.

"Logen - Run action? Couldn't you move and then charge for a total of 90 ft.?"

No, charging is a full-round action that lets you move double your speed. Only in the surprise round can you standard action charge, and move only your speed.

Thanks I'll move on with the goblins then.

The goblin closest to you struggle through the grass and manages to clear it and move a little further while the other takes of running.

Goblin 1 clears the spell and moves 10 ft. to the left, while goblin 2 runs straight left into the hills (120ft.)


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 4

Yes I have to use a triple move action, which means my entire turn consists of nothing but sprinting, but now i'm close enough to make them provoke if they pass me and to act my next turn

Taking careful aim and guided by Darius' song he finds his target yet again, this time hitting the closets goblin in the chest, the poor creature barely left standing.

Scared by the crusaders both goblins takes off, the one close to Logen still has enough sense to disengage him before hurrying away.

The goblin already running adds another 120 ft., placing him 240 ft. from Logen, the goblin close to Logen takes a 5 ft. step away and move 30 ft. away.


Vaslo firing: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (14) + 3 = 17
Dmg.: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5

"the goblin close to Logen takes a 5 ft. step away and move 30 ft. away."

You can't really do that, but he can take a Withdraw action to avoid the AOO.

Withdraw wrote:

Withdrawing from melee combat is a full-round action. When you withdraw, you can move up to double your speed. The square you start out in is not considered threatened by any opponent you can see, and therefore visible enemies do not get attacks of opportunity against you when you move from that square. Invisible enemies still get attacks of opportunity against you, and you can't withdraw from combat if you're blinded. You can't take a 5-foot step during the same round in which you withdraw.

If, during the process of withdrawing, you move out of a threatened square (other than the one you started in), enemies get attacks of opportunity as normal.

You may not withdraw using a form of movement for which you don't have a listed speed.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 4

yes he can, 5 foot step is a free action. doesnt provoke

Charge attack on closer goblin1d20 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (9) + 4 + 2 = 15
Damage2d4 + 5 ⇒ (4, 3) + 5 = 12

Move (under Move Actions combat section) wrote:
The simplest move action is moving your speed. If you take this kind of move action during your turn, you can't also take a 5-foot step...

That's why the withdraw action exists. You can't move and 5' step in the same round. If you could, you could 5' step out of melee, move your speed and then cast a quickened spell. Or other broken combinations of actions.

Edit:Also, weren't we gonna try to take one alive?

[ooc]A withdraw action it is then, the goblin moves 60 ft. away from Logen. And it isn't my fault that Vaslo keeps hitting.[ooc]

Male Human Arcane Duelist 1, Init +3, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3, 17 AC, 14 Touch, 13 FF, Rapier +3 (1d6+2)

Daruis moves towards the goblins.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 4

Is he within a strait line? He's close enough to charge but only if nothing is in the way

You'll be able to charge him Logen if you want to on your next turn unless something happens to him.

Logen charges the goblin which withdrew from him, his blow fails to connect as he tries to use the flat side of his blade.

Vaslo refrains from shooting at the little creature and cancels his spell.

The goblin withdraws from Logen once again now out of sight for the rest of the party.

Could you give me some pointers in the discussion thread on how you would like to proceed, should we end combat or ?


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 4

I'm gonna go for another attempt
Charge attack (nonlethal)1d20 + 4 ⇒ (20) + 4 = 24
Conform (nonlethal?)1d20 + 4 ⇒ (6) + 4 = 10
Damage2d4 + 3 ⇒ (3, 3) + 3 = 9

Combat is over, 1 goblin got away

Logen charges the goblin that just withdrew from him and this time his blade connects. The flat side of the blade come down on the golin's head like a sap and the creature is knocked out. Logen drags the goblin back to the others.

203 xp each, I'll get the loot up later on


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 4

"I made a pretty good swing on that one, he might be out for a while"

Male Human Arcane Duelist 1, Init +3, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3, 17 AC, 14 Touch, 13 FF, Rapier +3 (1d6+2)

"Good job, sir. Do you think he'll be up... ever?"


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 4

"Aye, I hit him with the flat, he might have quite the headache tho"

Male Human Arcane Duelist 1, Init +3, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3, 17 AC, 14 Touch, 13 FF, Rapier +3 (1d6+2)

"Well then, we should probably tie him up or something. Does anyone have rope or something?" Darius asks, looking at his companions.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 4

"Always have a bit of rope on me, more useful than a sword" Logen takes out his silk rope

"I have some rope, enough of it to mummify him I believe.


Male Half-Orc Barbarian 4

Logen begins to tie up the goblin, also taking his weapons off of him and searching for anything else that could be dangerous

As you search the orcs and the goblin you don't find any items besides their own equipment. However as one of you searches one of the orcs satchels you uncover a parcel. Opening it you discover it contains a piece like the one you already have a drawing of but with a different pattern and it does not seem to align with any of the sides of your drawing.

Trivial Loot:

16x javlins 16x1gp
4x Studded leather armours 4x25gp
4x Falchions 4x75gp

Male Human Arcane Duelist 1, Init +3, Fort +2, Ref +6, Will +3, 17 AC, 14 Touch, 13 FF, Rapier +3 (1d6+2)

"Another picture?! You don't think that there are multiple stones, are there?" Darius asks.

I wasn't clear, you find a stone this time.
