Male Human Ranger 7, AC 21, HPs 88/88, Int +3, (Bucho AC 22 HPs 62/62)

Intimidation 1d20 ⇒ 8
1d20 ⇒ 11
1d20 ⇒ 15

Initiative 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (11) + 3 = 14

Looks like Grym is going to be fighting an uphill battle on this one


Krojun!

Intimidate: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (1) + 16 = 17
Intimidate!: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (9) + 16 = 25
Intimidate!!: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (3) + 16 = 19

And initiative:

GO!: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (18) + 1 = 19

Grym:

Intimidation 1d20 ⇒ 8
1d20 ⇒ 11
1d20 ⇒ 15

Initiative 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (11) + 3 = 14

Score at the start:
Krojun: 6
Grym: 0

Krojun pulls for all he is worth:

STR: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (11) + 6 = 17

Grym. Tug or dig in?


Male Human Ranger 7, AC 21, HPs 88/88, Int +3, (Bucho AC 22 HPs 62/62)

Thorgrym forgets all about everything prior to this point. He knows he is outclassed but manages to push that away. His only existence is here in the now and enduring the pain of the leather loop cutting into the back of his head...

Dig in 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (8) + 4 = 12


Grym gets yanked forward before setting in his stance.

End of Round 1 Score:

Krojun: 8 Cannot fail his save. He's still in.
Grym: 0 Cannot fail his save either. He's still in.

----

Round 2: Krojun is confident he can win with an early and aggressive tactic. He yanks again, the cord tearing at Grym's skin. PULL: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (2) + 6 = 8

Grym!


Male Human Wizard (Enchanter: Controller) 7 Init +5; AC=11; T=11; FF=10; HP 46/46

Morkeleb watches the match progress, seeing the psychological and physical ground being gained by the braggart newcomer.

I hope Grym realizes that the only way he can win is if he manages to...

Pull, Grym!! Be strong!

He glances about, trying to determine whether cheering on your favored combatant is good, or bad, form.


Tough to to tell Morkeleb. A crowd is forming, but the crowd is more puzzled than anything else, for now.


Male Human Wizard (Enchanter: Controller) 7 Init +5; AC=11; T=11; FF=10; HP 46/46

then as long as Morkeleb is not given the stinkeye by any of his allies, he'll give Grym quiet, but intense, verbal support.

Odric cheers lustily for his buddy and shieldmate!

Ooc - in fact... Diplomacy to shift the crowds attitude to friendly competitiveness and congenial yet spirited support of thier respective competitor: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (11) + 3 = 14


Actually Grym cannot lose this round due to his dig in. No roll needed.

Score after Round 2:

Krojun: 8 Cannot fail his save. He's still in.
Grym: 0 Cannot fail his save either. He's still in.

Krojun pulls ever harder: PULL!: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (19) + 6 = 25

Grym Round 2...


Male Half-Elf Rogue 4/Cleric 3; Trapspotter 17; Init: 3; AC: 22; T: 14; FF: 22; HP: 41/41

Gaius pulls back out of the crowd and tries to duck out of sight of everyone, using the match as a distraction.

Stealth:1d20 + 13 ⇒ (14) + 13 = 27

Once he's confident no one is watching, he casts Invisibility.


The only one with eyes sharp enough to watch your retreat is locked in a game of Sredna. You're confident that the camp is now yours to explore.


1d20 ⇒ 17


Male Human Ranger 7, AC 21, HPs 88/88, Int +3, (Bucho AC 22 HPs 62/62)

wait did I miss a turn? Krojun kicked Gryms butt the first round. Then then the second round he rolls a 2. Then its still round 2 but Krojun now rolls a 19? WTF happened to that first crappy roll?

Round 2 Grym pulls for all he is worth 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (9) + 4 = 13


Male Dwarf Fighter 5 Urban Ranger 2 AC=26; T=14; FF=24; HP 81/81; Init+3; Per +12; +12F+9R+5W

Is betting allowed on this contest, if so the Dwarf will take up to 50G in wagers... trying to get the best odds possible on Grym to win


Male Half-Elf Rogue 4/Cleric 3; Trapspotter 17; Init: 3; AC: 22; T: 14; FF: 22; HP: 41/41

Hate to be this guy, but can I get a stronger description of the layout of this tent/room/arena? And how is Krojun dressed and equipped?

Just in case... I wish to enter initiative.

Initiative:1d20 + 3 ⇒ (16) + 3 = 19


I didn't skip your turn Grym. You spent your turn digging in. You withstood his tug (he rolled a 2 and you beat him.) He's pulling you, you can try to play defense (digging in) or score some points (beat his really crazy tug roll.

It sucks to do this over PbP. This would be a straight up game of dice in person. It'd take all of 2 minutes.

Krojun is a fully decked out barbarian. The tent you're in is actually quite sparse. It's got cots and a chamber pot for you. The flap is open. You could make it outside to explore camp.

Check THIS out. This mini is based on the NPC Krojun.


Male Human Ranger 7, AC 21, HPs 88/88, Int +3, (Bucho AC 22 HPs 62/62)

What ever round it is

Dig in 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (15) + 4 = 19


Male Half-Elf Rogue 4/Cleric 3; Trapspotter 17; Init: 3; AC: 22; T: 14; FF: 22; HP: 41/41

Looks like a kilt/loin cloth situation. And he's on all fours.

So I could, I don't know, blow on his genitals to distract him and give Grym a slight edge?

I could probably think of something more elegant.


Yes, I'd give you the effects of the Dirty Trick Combat maneuver.

Phil, not sure if this is your tactic on purpose, but digging in is essentially going total defense, it's a losing proposition. To score you must attack.


Male Dwarf Fighter 5 Urban Ranger 2 AC=26; T=14; FF=24; HP 81/81; Init+3; Per +12; +12F+9R+5W

Did I missread? If the person fails a tug roll the opponent gets 2 points. If its a tie they split the points


Oops, I am wrong. Sorry Phil I got my wires and mini-games crossed. You're good through Round 3. I've been handling it slightly wrong. There's stuff to do on each of your turns within a given round. Game summary is below.

Start:
Krojun: 6
Grym: 0

Round 1: Krojun pulls, and beats Grym. Grym opts for a dig in, no rolls needed.
Krojun: 8 Can't fail save
Grym: 0 Can't fail save

Round 2: Krojun pulls again, but Grym crushes him. Grym opts again to dig in.
Krojun: 8 Can't fail save
Grym: 2 Can't fail save

Round 3: Krojun pulls mightily and even though Grym stood his ground and REALLY gave him a run for his money, the round goes to Krojun. Grym, still holds fast though, and keeps his ground.
Krojun: 10 Can't fail save
Grym: 2 Can't fail save

Round 4: Krojun is looking frustrated, as he thought this would go much more easily. He doesn't change his game plan, though through his pained look Grym can see a plan forming in the barbarian's eyes. PULL!: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (8) + 6 = 14. Grym, make your STR check with the +4 dig in bonus, then take your Round 4 action.
Krojun: TBD
Grym: TBD

Off to the side, Sandor and Odric have their efforts at whipping up the crowd and getting people to bet have no effect. The game is drawing onlookers from the outside, but it's a strange novelty to them. They're not sure how to act either.


Male Human Ranger 7, AC 21, HPs 88/88, Int +3, (Bucho AC 22 HPs 62/62)

Round 4

The ranger is used to fighting and such as if he has ice water in his veins. But now he concentrates on the intense pain, he uses it to power his pulling attack.

Pull 1d20 + 4 + 4 ⇒ (13) + 4 + 4 = 21

do I get to take my favored enemy bonus here? Please give me an extra +4 if so.


Sadly, Ability checks are not covered by favored enemy bonuses.

Grym switches strategies! GAH!: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (9) + 6 = 15 He yanks Krojun forward! The onlookers are now surprised at the turn of events. Whispers are starting to spread.

Perception DC 15 and you must speak Shoanti:

The whispers are shock at how well an outsider is handling himself. You also hear mention that Krojun is taking it easy...for now.

Round 4: Krojun is looking frustrated, as he thought this would go much more easily. He doesn't change his game plan, though through his pained look Grym can see a plan forming in the barbarian's eyes. Grym YANKS his opponent forward.
Krojun: 10
Grym: 4

Round 5: Krojun's eyes go wide and he pulls hard. The veins on his neck and head are now popping out. PULL!: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (8) + 6 = 14. Grym's Counter 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (16) + 4 = 20. A masterful contest, and it'l lbe 2 points for Grym! Grym, your move this round...
Krojun: TBD
Grym: TBD


Male Human Ranger 7, AC 21, HPs 88/88, Int +3, (Bucho AC 22 HPs 62/62)

Still uncertain of this very strange game. Grym digs in this round against Krojun's might.

Dig in 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (3) + 4 = 7

The ranger curses for letting himself start to think. He clears his mind as he tries to hold on for another round.

Morkeleb is watching as well. If Krojun appears to start cheating, the wizard will be prepared to, too. Probably with a Daze spell


Round 5: Krojun's eyes go wide and he pulls hard. The veins on his neck and head are now popping out. PULL!: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (8) + 6 = 14. Grym's Counter 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (16) + 4 = 20. Grym plays the waiting game again, digging in.
Krojun: 10
Grym: 6

Round 6: Krojun finally makes his move. This game has gone on long enough. He explodes in a furious rage. His muscles bulge and look like strained rope. He utterly ignores Grym's tactic and goes for broke: RAGE PULL!: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (19) + 9 = 28. Grym's dig: 1d20 + 4 + 4 ⇒ (1) + 4 + 4 = 9, and blood start's to show on Grym's neck. (It'll be 2 points for Krojun.)
Krojun: TBD
Grym: TBD

Grym, your action.


Male Human Ranger 7, AC 21, HPs 88/88, Int +3, (Bucho AC 22 HPs 62/62)

There is nothing but the cord cutting into Grym's flesh.

All effort and ability is focused on pulling.

1d20 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9


Grym ends round 6 with a less than stellar tug. Krojun can't NOT win.

Round 6:
Krojun: 14
Grym: 6

Krojun has now accumulated enough points to test Grym's ability to stay in the match. Grym mus tmake a Fortitude save FORT: 1d20 + 8 + 4 ⇒ (18) + 8 + 4 = 30. The ranger's fortitude is IMMENSE.

Round 7: There is no strategy now, only the rage. PULL: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (6) + 9 = 15 versus Grym 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (4) + 4 = 8. It'll be 2 points for Krojun. Grym, your turn for round 7.


Male Human Ranger 7, AC 21, HPs 88/88, Int +3, (Bucho AC 22 HPs 62/62)

Shortly after entering the challenge knew he was outclassed. But he was determined to hold out as long as possible. Yet those thoughts are pushed away into the back of his mind.
All he knows is to pull...

Pull 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (18) + 4 = 22


Grym pulls! 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (8) + 9 = 17 and WINS!

Round 7:
Krojun: 16 Can't fail.
Grym: 8 FORT: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (17) + 12 = 29

Boom!

Round 9 begins: Krojun keeps it up 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (19) + 9 = 28 versus Grym. 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (10) + 4 = 14. The blood is starting to really show. It'll be two points for Krojun. Grym, your turn.


Male Human Ranger 7, AC 21, HPs 88/88, Int +3, (Bucho AC 22 HPs 62/62)

Pull 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (14) + 4 = 18


1d20 + 9 ⇒ (10) + 9 = 19 It's SO close, but the raging barbarian takes the round.

Round 8:
Krojun: 20 Can't fail
Grym: 8 FORT: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (15) + 12 = 27

Grym's immense fortitude keeps him in the game. On to Round 9! PULL!: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (17) + 9 = 26 versus Grym's resistance 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (20) + 4 = 24. Gorum's Gut! The crowd is awed by the fight that this tshamek is putting up. It's still 2 points for Krojun, but Grym's certainly not out of it yet. Grym, your move.


Male Human Ranger 7, AC 21, HPs 88/88, Int +3, (Bucho AC 22 HPs 62/62)

Pull 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (6) + 4 = 10


1d20 + 9 ⇒ (20) + 9 = 29

Round 9:
Krojun: 24 Can't Fail
Grym: 8 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (6) + 12 = 18

Grym's body finally gives out and the cord snaps over his ears. Krojun leaps up, “Almost as good as an aurochs calf. Nothing to be too ashamed about.” With a hearty laugh, he reclaims his strap and stands. He claps each of the outsiders on the shoulder and leaves to go to his brother's service without another word.

Thousand-Bones turns to you, "That went... well. Krojun respects bravery. If you are to secure the help and friendship of the Shaonti, you'll need more of that....

The party has earned one Respect Point. This mechanic is unique to this adventure, and represents your progress with the Shoanti. If indeed they hold the key to defeating the queen, you'll need all the respect you can gain. The Respect Point total will be at the top of the campaign area, located by the map.

Thousand Bones continues, [b]"Tonight you will come to the Bone Council. There the elders will discuss what you are doing here. You've started on a good path, I hope we can keep it. Decide what you want to say. Hemming and hawing will not make you any friends."


Male Dwarf Fighter 5 Urban Ranger 2 AC=26; T=14; FF=24; HP 81/81; Init+3; Per +12; +12F+9R+5W

I say we say the truth as straight forward as we can, deposing the queen can only help the relationship between the Shoanti, and Korvosa

Amazing attempt there Grym. I will buy you a good dwarven stout to help dull the pain


Male Human Ranger 7, AC 21, HPs 88/88, Int +3, (Bucho AC 22 HPs 62/62)

The ranger claps Krojun on the shoulder in turn. Then turns to Odric and DeGrog, I made a poor guess of what the challenge would be when I accepted. That would have been a better game for one of you.

Grym agrees with Sandor about being straight forward and honest. He also will accept a strong dwarven beverage.


Feel free to catch up, The council will be posted tomorrow after my PFS game.


Male Human Wizard (Enchanter: Controller) 7 Init +5; AC=11; T=11; FF=10; HP 46/46

Morkeleb puts a hand on Grym's shoulder. A good showing. I wish I could have assisted you.

Grym gives a nod.


As night falls, Thousand Bones invites you to join him at the center of the camp. The majority of the other Skoan-Quah retire early to their tents out of respect for the Bone Council Fire—the only people present are the you, Thousand Bones, Chief One-Life, and Ash Dancer who is the tribes eldest wise-woman. As Thousand Bones speaks, Ash Dancer sprinkles the fire with a greenish-brown herbal dust from a weathered pouch.

"You have already done my people a great favor by returning the body of one of our warriors. I sense now you come to me to ask a favor in return, yet know that by doing this favor, you are helping us all. The Skoan-Quah are a peaceful people, yet we are also all but shunned by our kin. Our willingness to mix with tshamek shames many of my brothers and sisters in the other quahs. Only their respect for our tradition of guarding and protecting the dead of all Shoanti keep them from open hostility against us. My words do not reach their ears when I advise against war on Korvosa. They hear tales of the city in flames, of its king dead, of disease ravaging its people, and they see this as the time foretold. A time when the Shoanti can ride down from these burning lands and reclaim greener lands to the south, lands that were once ours. Yet war is not good for us. My brothers do not see that, even crippled, Korvosa remains a powerful enemy. It is best to make your enemies your friends, do you not think? Yet my brothers do not listen to these words. They see weakness,
they demand action."

"Yet you could not know of the coming war. You come to me with a different favor. Speak of what you wish of me, and perhaps we may find our needs are the same.”


Male Human Inquisitor 7 AC=20; T=15; FF=15; HP=52/52

Ferox steps forward and addresses the Bone Council.

He takes a quick moment to look over the members of the council to gauge their current attitudes.
Sense Motive: 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (6) + 14 = 20

The rumors your people have heard about Korvosa have some truth to them, but there is much more that you need to know.

Queen Ileosa perpetrated the King's death, and implicated an innocent woman for the deed. She then engineered the plague that ravaged Korvosa in order to weaken the populace and the other noble houses. Thus, she and her Grey Maidens could tighten her grip on the city.

We recently learned that Ileosa also had the king's brother killed so that she could gain access to the royal treasury. There she came into possession of an ancient crown, forged from the teeth of a great blue dragon, Kazavon. The crown has given her incredible power and invulnerability. We know we cannot defeat her and bring peace back to Korvosa while she has the crown.

We know that the Shoanti once called the lands around Korvosa their own; that they once dwelt in the shadow of the ancient pyramid that now forms the foundation of Castle Korvosa and believed that a great evil resided within those stones. We have come to you in the hope of learning all we can about this great evil, the blue dragon, Kazavon, and if there is any way for us to defeat it.

Diplomacy: 1d20 + 11 + 6 ⇒ (17) + 11 + 6 = 34


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Dammit. I was away in Maine and missed all the fun.

Gaius retroactively uses his invisibility to scount the camp and find the women.


Sorry Gaius, yes you can find "where the women at."

Those here seem interested in your words. When you make mention of Kazavon, Ash Dancer inhales sharply. She speaks next.

"You speak of a time many generations ago, yet it is a wound that has never healed. My brothers among the Skoan-Quah have forgiven, but our numbers are small. We were once a part of the Sklar-Quah, yet our readiness to forgive marked us traitors and we were exiled from that clan. In the generations that passed we grew more at peace with our role here—there is beauty in the Cinderlands, if you know where to look. We have abandoned our memories of lives below the rise in a way the Sklar-Quah have not. Those memories poison them. They do not see that this land is theirs. They only see lands that their ancestors called home. If you seek more wisdom of those times, you must seek out the keepers of words among the Sklar-Quah. You must seek the words of a Sun Shaman.”

HA! Orcus' Teats, I read that wrong.

Gaius carouses, and establishes diplomatic channels. Exchanges cultural traditions.
