Grelda will use marching song to speed the journey. She'll follow Jolis's lead.

Following in Miya's wake, Jolis asks the foxwoman, "So, do we plan to attack The Fortress, or do you have a softer target in mind?"

Strolling along, clearly bored, Lera turns to her traveling buddy. "So Vitranna...I just realized that we've never spoken one-on-one."

Miya thinks a moment

"We head out until we find their out guard outpost perimeter. They will have some. Then we hunker down and watch for a bit. See what pattons they have in place. So we head here on the map and scout. Then I will infiltrate the outpost and get intel on where they have other placs"

If they find some of the enemy that night they will put it under observation. This should give the others time to catch up

Vitranna nods,smiles and replies cryptically.

"My people having a saying: "Silence is often louder when it is not spoken of."

"So the first rule of not talking is to not talk about not talking. Got it."


Female Human (Shoanti) Level 6 Bard (Thundercaller) - VMC Sorcerer (Stormborn)| HP 34/40 | Speed 30ft | AC 18(22), touch 14(18), flat-footed 15 (CMD 19) | Fort +4 : Ref +8 : Will +6 |Performance 21rds/Day; Thunderstaff 8/day | Init +4, Perception +7 | Active:

Vitranna's smile deepens as they continue down the path after the others.

"You hide it with humor perhaps, but you understand more than you let on. However if it helps: Silence, in general, can mean many things. Silence between people...is often just another way of talking to those with the wits to listen properly. Anyway...if you have questions: just ask. I am, as they say, an 'open book.' "

"What do the Shoanti do for fun?"


Female Human (Shoanti) Level 6 Bard (Thundercaller) - VMC Sorcerer (Stormborn)| HP 34/40 | Speed 30ft | AC 18(22), touch 14(18), flat-footed 15 (CMD 19) | Fort +4 : Ref +8 : Will +6 |Performance 21rds/Day; Thunderstaff 8/day | Init +4, Perception +7 | Active:

With more smiling, Vitranna speaks of her people almost reverently.

"We live freely under the stars and sun. We ride where we wish and hunt what we wish. Dance and sing when we feel like dancing. We speak to the world's spirits and let our ancestor's stories guide us in our future endeavors. The true question is, when are we NOT having fun? Sure there are wars, monsters, and evil magic...dragons even! Very LARGE dragons! But all freedom has a price: Most of my people choose to take and hold their freedom at any cost."


Miya's group: Tracking down an outpost isn't too difficult. Whether it's due to their hubris, or simple carelessness, the enemy troops don't make much effort to disguise their tracks. You know you're close when you start finding crude goblin "art" etched into tree trunks. Early in the second day, you find another ruined tower, similar to the one you hid from the otyugh in. This one is not nearly as damaged though, merely weathered, not destroyed. Some paltry defenses have been put up. A wall of wooden spikes, about three feet high, surrounds most of the tower, but there are several gaps interspersed throughout. Good for slowing down a charging battalion, but not much good for deterring a group your size.

Perception checks:

Miya: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (8) + 11 = 19
Jolis: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (13) + 11 = 24
Grelda: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (6) + 9 = 15

As you scout around, you quickly realize that the wall is mostly for show. Several other traps are hidden in the forest around the outpost. Tripwires set to release deadly spikes, camouflaged bear traps, and hidden pitfalls litter the area. Grelda comes close to stepping into one, but notices just moments before her foot came down. A larger group storming the place, or even just a careless scout, would likely be ripped to shreds.

Still a way back she shifts to fox form and sends to the others.

::"Our aim here is to wipe this lot out, kill everyone, while stopping them from giving the alarm. We will remove all the bodies after but leave the place intact. This is so when the next group comes there is nothing here. We want them not know know what happened. But 1st some intel, if we can capture one or I can get close, I can study it and copy it. Then go in and get them talking, once I have something I will signal and we take them out. My job will be to stop them rasing the alarm. Your job to kill the rest. If you can take the three in the trees before then, with out as sound then even better. What do you say?"::

"That does sound like fun. I've always thought the world was too big to stay in one city for too long. That said, I could do without any very large dragons attacking me."

For when Lera and Vitranna catch up to the others

"I have one trick that silence someone though I was saving it for that strange woman we met at the tavern when the army can in."


It takes a few hours for Valeriya and Vitranna to finally catch up with the others. While Miya's group waits in hiding nearby, they see four different bugbears appear at the top of the tower, watching one at a time in shifts. But none come or go from the tower during this time. It's hard to say exactly how many are inside. The only entrance is the closed wooden door at the base.

There are open windows starting about ten feet off of the ground, and then more on each level. You can sometimes see hints of movement or light coming from them, but nothing distinct from where you are. The tower is four stories tall, not counting the guard post on the roof.

To enact Miya's plan, you will have to find a way inside.

Pondering only for a moment at the layout of the tower, Vitranna then compares it mentally with the previous version they were at before.

"Tunnel? We can try an infiltrate from there if this one has one like the last one did. I have a feeling these builders liked their 'escape tunnels' to be both numerous and plentiful. If they actually have the barrier up, it should bypass that obstacle too. Right?"

Dos anybody have knowledge Geography or Engineering? It might help to figure out if this place has a tunnel too and where it might be accessed at.


[Ooc]To clarify, this is a much smaller building than the research station and worn by age. There are no signs of a forcefield. Geo or Engineering might be useful though.[\ooc]

"Sadly that was Richard's purview. I'm more of a Dark Arts gal. I have a mist that can make a distraction but I wouldn't suggest entering into it and I can only throw it about 20 paces."

"Me and Miya can move pretty fast. We could quickly move in and take out some opposition to make way for the rest", Jolis suggested.


Female Human (Shoanti) Level 6 Bard (Thundercaller) - VMC Sorcerer (Stormborn)| HP 34/40 | Speed 30ft | AC 18(22), touch 14(18), flat-footed 15 (CMD 19) | Fort +4 : Ref +8 : Will +6 |Performance 21rds/Day; Thunderstaff 8/day | Init +4, Perception +7 | Active:

I have bardic ability called 'Lore Master' (Ex): At 5th level, the bard becomes a master of lore and can take 10 on any Knowledge skill check that he has ranks in. A bard can choose not to take 10 and can instead roll normally. In addition, once per day, the bard can take 20 on any Knowledge skill check as a standard action. He can use this ability one additional time per day for every six levels he possesses beyond 5th, to a maximum of three times per day at 17th level. Can I try a single engineering or geography check (taking 20) with this for the day, or am I limited to skills I have skill ranks in?


Yes, the once per day part can be used for any knowledge skill. Taking 20 in geography-

Looking around the area, Vitranna can remember some of the notes that Richard took before and several of his mutterings about the tunnel. Using that, and the layout of the tunnels they were in before, she know that there's very likely a hidden tunnel within a mile of the groups location. Pinpointing it might take some time, but if found, it would give you an easy way in.

Relaying her sudden geographical inspiration to everyone, she asks the inevitable question.

"Do you want to try for the tunnel, or just go in now? I would urge caution and find the tunnel myself, but I can understand if you all are spoiling for another fight."


Male Human (taldan)| HP: 62/62 | AC: 18 (12 Tch, 17 Fl) | CMB: +10, CMD: 25 | F: +10, R: +10, W: +7 | Init: +1 | Perc: +11, SM: +8 Godling (mighty)/6th| Speed 60ft (50ft) | Active conditions: None.

"No!" stated Jolis. "Let's do the smart thing and find that tunnel. If all goes well, we'll have plenty of 'fight' to have our fill."


Female Human (Shoanti) Level 6 Bard (Thundercaller) - VMC Sorcerer (Stormborn)| HP 34/40 | Speed 30ft | AC 18(22), touch 14(18), flat-footed 15 (CMD 19) | Fort +4 : Ref +8 : Will +6 |Performance 21rds/Day; Thunderstaff 8/day | Init +4, Perception +7 | Active:

Vitranna starts looking for the tunnel.

Knowledge (Nature): 1d20 + 8 + 3 ⇒ (9) + 8 + 3 = 20

Perception: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (7) + 7 = 14

Survival: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (7) + 7 = 14

Grelda hopes her efforts to find the tunnel bear fruit.

Perception: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (20) + 9 = 29


Finding the entrance to the tunnel is a bit trickier this time. This one is well hidden, but you're able to spot a rather unnatural formation of stones that conceal the entrance. With a bit of heavy lifting, you can get inside. This tunnel is slightly smaller, and in slightly worse condition than the last one you found. But it is serviceable, and will take you beneath the tower.

Soon, you're able to locate the trapdoor you believe will take you directly into the enemy base. Now it's just time to plan your next move.

"Tactically speaking we should send in Miya to scout quickly and take out any unaware guards down here. There should be few unless they know or suspect this is here. Once we know the basement is clear, we can enter and start this...retaliation."

She then proceeds to cast Cat's Grace upon Miya, then use her Wand of Protection from Evil on her as well.

"That okay by you, Miya?" asked Jolis.


In her fox form, Miya is able to scout out the basement fairly quickly and without drawing attention. For now, the room is empty save for a few crates of food, alcohol, and other 'taxes' claimed from Ruin Village. It appears as if someone might be skimming some of the take for themselves.

There's a ladder in the basement leading further up, and you can hear some commotion coming from upstairs. From the sound of it, a bunch of rowdy bugbears settling in at the end of their guard shift. Jolis can understand their chatter; mostly arguing over dice games and who owes money to who.

Vitranna signals for everybody to move up and into the basement quietly. She whispers to the others.

"Be ready to attack quickly."

With longsword draw, Jolis rushes up and into the basement.
Stealth: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (15) + 16 = 31

Grelda moves as stealthily as she can. It's not very stealthy.

Stealth: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10

Lera walks daintily, trying desperately to remain quiet despite a total lack of experience in such things.


Perception: 1d20 + 8 - 10 ⇒ (19) + 8 - 10 = 17

You move across the basement and ascend the stairs quickly and silently...or, mostly silently. Jolis is already halfway up the stairs when Grelda bumps into a precarious stack of crates, sending them toppling over. The commotion upstairs pauses.

"Whassat? Another rat? It's your turn to kill this one, Yud."[/d]

[b]"Fine, fine. Gimme yer club."

Jolis leaps downstairs to meet the others.
"Hide!" whispers the big warrior. "Then we take him out quickly!"
