M Goblin Beer Snob 7/Freethinker 3

The boar runs; at 4x normal speed, he's 100 yards away by the time you react. You're left waiting for him to charge again, maybe in a minute, maybe in an hour.


M Goblin Beer Snob 7/Freethinker 3

Cricket, you noticed amidst the commotion that the boar had what looked like a wooden amulet on a chain around its neck.


M Goblin Beer Snob 7/Freethinker 3

As the sun rises and the day warms, you grow accustomed to the sounds of birds and so on, and are instantly aware when they stop. Once or twice it's a false alarm, and you go back to chewing trail rations, but in one instance, you ready your weapons as a cracking branch signals an impending charge.

Cricket Perception, with forest favored terrain and Aid Another from everyone else: 1d20 + 11 + 2 + 6 ⇒ (13) + 11 + 2 + 6 = 32

Boar stealth: 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (9) + 14 = 23

You're aware of the monster's intent and direction before it breaks from the forest. Anyone with reach weapons can take a swing at him as he comes. Anyone who wins initiative can attack him as he goes by, before he gets the chance to gore someone.

Boar initiative: 1d20 + 5 + 2 ⇒ (14) + 5 + 2 = 21


Male Halfling Bard 4 (Minstrel)

Initiative 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (15) + 3 = 18


Male Mountain Dwarf Fighter/4 HP 51/42 (9 Temp) AC 26 FF 22 T 14 Fort +8 Ref +7 Will +4 Intuit +3 CMD 22 Init +3 (+5 Underground)

Kirth, is there anything that can be done with grit to re-roll or get bonuses on the roll? I don't have any of the rules with me right now

Initiative: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (9) + 3 = 12

Yes -- 1 point of grit can be used as 1 hero point, to either force one d20 reroll outright or else add/subtract 1d6 + Cha mod to one d20 roll.

1d20 + 3 ⇒ (16) + 3 = 19

Aargh! So close!

Cricket stares at the devil boar in horror.

Wolvie whimpers.


M Goblin Beer Snob 7/Freethinker 3

Moving right along...

Initiative:
Wyvurn 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (6) + 4 = 10
Kelgan 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (17) + 2 = 19
Miralda 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9


M Goblin Beer Snob 7/Freethinker 3

The boar acts in a frenzy of speed, choosing a new target to gore, but having learned from its previous attempt, it pointedly ignores the heavily-armored targets:

1=Caspian; 2=Cricket; 3=Miralda; 4=Wyvurn 1d4 ⇒ 4
1d20 + 14 ⇒ (7) + 14 = 212d6 + 19 + 2d6 ⇒ (2, 2) + 19 + (2, 4) = 29

The monster angles for Wyvurn, who had threatened it with his blade on its last charge. This time, it would have savagely gored the doughty hobgoblin, except that Wyvurn's keenly-honed sixth sense allows him to twist aside even after it's seemingly too late; the boar's tusk misses him by a hairs-breadth.

Everyone can now act: Cricket (and Wolvie!), Kelgan; then Caspian; then Jaegr, Wyvurn, and finally Miralda. Also, Kelgan can still resolve his AoO due to his reach weapon.


Male Goblin Druid 4

Cricket casts tarball and holds his action until the boar makes another charge and comes within 40 feet. He also commands Wolvie to hup.


Male Halfling Bard 4 (Minstrel)

"Cricket is this really an animal?"

"And don't you have some mother tree crap that'll work on it!"


M Goblin Beer Snob 7/Freethinker 3

The boar is still there; evidently he's tired of running around and wants to just gore someone. So Cricket can let fly with the tar ball!


Male Mountain Dwarf Fighter/4 HP 51/42 (9 Temp) AC 26 FF 22 T 14 Fort +8 Ref +7 Will +4 Intuit +3 CMD 22 Init +3 (+5 Underground)

The dwarven tactic of letting your opponent wear itself out is working!

Cricket strikes a strange pose. He stares down the devil boar with his hands behind his back. He shakes his head once. Then, again. Then, he nods his head up and down, looks over his left shoulder, winds up and pitches a wicked sidehanded slider!

To hit: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (2) + 6 = 8

Damage: 1d4 ⇒ 3
Fire burns for ??? rounds: 1d4 ⇒ 3

Rest of spell:

Spoiler:
If the tar ball strikes, it deals 1d4 points of fire damage + your Strength modifier, and splashes the target with hot, sticky tar. The tar deals 1d4 points of fire damage each round on the creature's turn for the next 1d4 rounds and gives the target a –2 penalty to Dexterity for that duration. If desired, the target can use a full-round action to attempt to extinguish or cool the tar before taking this additional damage. Extinguishing or cooling the tar requires a DC 15 Reflex save or at least 1 gallon of nonflammable liquid. Rolling on the ground provides the target a +2 bonus on the save. Leaping into a lake or magically cooling the target automatically ends the effect.

Wolvie whines and thumps his tail excitedly, obeying his bestest friend's command.


Male Goblin Druid 4

Cricket doesn't answer Caspian's question this round because he is too busy cursing and stamping his feet.

"Instant wallow and roast! Brilliant!"

"The best anti-pig spell ever!"


M Goblin Beer Snob 7/Freethinker 3

The burning pitch would have missed the boar, but, sneering at you through its tusks, it intentionally stands still just long enough for the ball of tar to strike. The fire fails to burn the monster, or even singe its fur. Looking at you, it growls, "Fire has no effect on a thing from the Pit."

Kelgan: You're up!
Then Caspian, then Jaegr.


Male Goblin Druid 4

I don't think it's really an animal, Caspian.


Male Hill Dwarf Fighter 4

Sorry, busy week of midterm exams.

AoO: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (17) + 7 = 241d10 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7 Non-magical glaive

The Devil speaks! Stay close, Miralda.

Kelgan falls into shield stance with a well-practiced motion. He snaps his shield down and locks the glaive into the slot on its side. He grounds the butt of the glaive solidly in the earth with his foot and prepares to gut the boar on its next pass. While the glaive is shaped differently than a boar spear (and lacks its cross-bar!), it will do well enough to spit the murderous swine.

Glaive doesn't have the brace property, so just readying a pre-emptive action to strike at the boar when it closes.
