"Abyss, Hell, from where I'm standing the difference is pretty academic. ...and you're probably the least lost soul I know - a little lacking in the common sense department, but your heart's in the right place."
Wendaug watched the exchange with a bit of distance. She was a little preoccupied with her surroundings as her hand gripped the new bow she was gifted, eager to try it out.
"Lacking in common sense I would have to agree with you Laris." A wry grin spread across her scaly lips. "But if you do end up in hell Verim, at least we wouldn't be too far apart." A little smirk remained on her lips for a moment before looking down the road they would have to travel.
"You said you knew a little bit of the place, didn't you Laris? Since we recommend the paladins to keep guard, the place will surely be crawling with demons."
"Know may be the wrong word, I think our best option is to take the back allies, get as close as we can without being detected - then punch through - don't stop until we take out the Wardstone, then we worry about getting out."
Laris smiles at the others
"Don't think I'm viewing this a suicide mission, but if it's as crawling with cultists and demons as we're expecting we probably won't have any time to mourn if one of us drops. So I'll say now that it's been an honor travelling with you all."
"Probably a bad idea to go full-pelt through these guys; won't help much if we're all dead before we reach the Wardstone." Luci suggested. "Shame we don't know how long it would take them to reinforce if we have to pull back."
I don't mean running through so much, but I doubt we have the power to move in, secure a room and move on. Once they know we're there they'll be calling in reinforcements, so we need to do it one go, or we'll be back at square one.
"Luck's been on our side thus far, why would we have to run out of it now?", Mia says with questioning eyes.
" HARHAR! Laris is right on both counts I suppose! As a man well versed in such things, we can't assume the enemy will be nice enough to let us take a leisurely walk, but a few breaks here or there wont be bad/. Enough to top us off if it gets particularly bad though. I'll try to fall gracefully enough for your boots not to stain the ground eh? "
Verim gets wiry in his movements, " And this is a Fort, I don't see no back entrance. Best to see how bad it is, Right? We've tangled with their outposts, not a bad Idea to assume they aren't as defended. Good thing I lack this 'common sense' you ladies seem to be speakin' of. "
Verim seeing nothing disturbing before approaching and listening to the Door to the other side.
Perception: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (13) + 8 = 21
"Just be sure that lack of common sense doesn't get you killed."
Raising a finger into the air, "Okay, on to wooping demon ass and victory."
The half elf with the party had been quiet and was thinking to herself. But she did have an idea.
"Well, if we find a part of the wall that's somewhere around twenty feet high, maybe it got damaged by everything. Maybe even a window, I can get us in."
Reaching into her spell component pouch, Tallina produces a few beans showing the halfling.
"Not Tobongo, but a plant nonetheless. I know a trick to make these grow into a structure large enough to get us up. Although, Tobongo does have an uncanny knack for climbing."
The spell climbing beanstalk, I prep it as a throwaway spell for summoning but it looks like it can be useful. Although, Tobongo has an actual climb speed.
