"Rag End, Rotgut, Rat Street. Someplace out past the wharves that begins with R. Apparently it's really dangerous and crawling with thugs and murderers, but apart from the evil cultists this is the only time I've been attacked since I got here...last week. I think I've been there twice. I lost count. Can I have that drink?" -- Braddon Hurst

Don't forget to crit Braddon :)


Yeah, I noticed Lucky is up next. Until further notice, Lucky will NEVER do anything in combat. No way am I gonna chance on getting him killed. I'd just feel too guilty. So you can just skip his turn permanently. :)


The lead man of the opposing party has not yet had time to react to the unexpected meeting. Caught off guard, he fails to dodge Gristav's arrow, which buries itself deeply in his thigh.

Braddon neatly decapitates his attacker, though the cover of the now-blood-splattered boulders prevents him from serving as an example to his companions.

Too far to tangibly impact on the fray given interposing bodies, Phillip moves forward to better vantage...

Run to G,13 if possible - otherwise double move to D,10


Phillip runs to take up a position behind a small boulder at the side of the road.

Seeing nothing but the three men in the road, Tendal quietly sighs. This seems to have been a poor attempt at an ambush, now spoilt. Further, there doesn't appear to be much for my skills to do, my companions seem to have this well in hand.

Tendal prudently weaves his defensive magic, settling the mage armor spell upon his body, then remains where he is in the road, cane planted in the dust, watching the scrum.

A man recognizable as one of Harvey Read's retinue emerges from behind some boulders up the road and fires an arrow which whistles past Gristav's ear.

One of the men who had been caught tailing the party moves up to where Snake is standing in the middle of the road, drawing a curved blade, and slashes at him. His eyes widen when his blade is turned by the invisible force-skin the witch has summoned into existence.

The lead man, who took Gristav's arrow in the meat of his leg, limps quickly back the way he came. "Help! Brigands! Highwaymen!" he shouts as takes cover behind the boulders where the bowman just emerged.

Breathing a sigh of relief as his magical barrier manages to protect him, he swings his morningstar toward the skull of the thug.

Mwk. Morningstar: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (16) + 3 = 19
Damage: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (8) + 1 = 9

AC 16; Hp's 15/15


The morningstar connects with the man's head with a solid crunch, and he drops in the road.

Harvey Read's other friend, drawing two daggers, emerges from the cluster of boulders and moves toward the tray, shortly followed by Harvey himself, drawing a small metal star from a pouch at his belt. He offers the group a wink and a sneer before raising his voice and bellowing back toward the edge of town, "Covers! To arms! Bandits and murderers! Defend your mates!"

Phillip and Tendal hear the pounding of running feet coming up behind them on the road, a helpful citizen answering Read's call to arms.

The staff-wielding man charges directly over the man Snake just dropped and swings, one end of his weapon connecting solidly with the witch.

Round 2:

Hearing Read's desperate words and knowing that arrivals from the rear might tip the balance, Phillip turns his attention rearward - gesturing to Tendal to keep his own focus forwards. Answering in kind he raises voice "Take heed arrotz before your karitate ekintza... we are no bandits and walk our path known to Marzo himself. To act on us is to act on the familia." hoping that the seed sown will reap doubt and hesitance.

Bluff at +12

Varisi:
arrotz - stranger; karitate ekintza - act of charity; familia - family / Sczarni

Incensed, Gristav rages from behind his bow, "YOU brought this death, Read, sending these hounds to dog our steps. WE sent them back whole, you SEND THEM AT US AGAIN?! Try to LEAD us, to a TRAP?! And now you call innocents to this losing fight?!"

"Let your blood, be the last of it.", Gristav incants ...requests ...bargains. And, stepping back into the draw, looses another broadhead.

longbow+1: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (8) + 4 = 12

"Damn."

What did you expect, boy? You think you're a paladin, to call righteous vengeance at will?

"Hush, You." I've still reason. And guile. Spotting Read's metal star, Gristav leads trump before Read can play it.

"Riddleport Gendarmerie.", Gristav says, less loudly than the roars, but punctuated, and potent. "Stand. Down."

5' step West, clearing the line of fire to Read. Fire on Read. Miss. Blather like a ...Gristav.

If I might ask, the narrative kindness of Gris' arrow striking the sheild, rather than just flying past?

Braddon draws his short sword while moving up to help Snake and move behind Snake's attacker. (E22)

"There are more ambusher's up the road, but they'd rather die than face the Overlord."
Braddon makes a nasty stab for emphasis and smiles unpleasantly.

Bastard Sword (+2 vs Human): 1d20 + 6 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 6 + 2 = 11
Damage (+2 vs Human): 1d10 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 4 + 2 = 8


Read casually extends his shield and shatters Gristav's arrow.

Braddon emerges from behind the stand of boulders, covered with blood that doesn't appear to be his own, and slashes at the man with the quarterstaff, who manages to sidestep the attack.

See above for Phillip - he's just calling out and not engaging. Essentially covering rearward.
