Cai Fen nods approvingly.

Strong like Ox indeed.


The Perennial Crown

Everyone has 1 hero point.

Marula:
Thrown by their Champion friend, Marula sails over the palisade and drifts down. They see a well-trodden yard below. A small wooden hut is built against the southern rock wall, facing a squat stone fortress to the North. A tower stands at the north end of the edifice, with a covered roof. A two-story dome anchors the southern end of the fortress. The structure has a brooding look about it, with narrow windows set between heavy pillars of rock.

Marula notices several creatures as they fly through the air — two orcs under the covered roof of the 30-foot tall tower (one is leaning on the wall and actively searching her surroundings, she has a longbow and looks like this), and two sitting at a fire in the yard, cooking something disgusting on a spit. The gate is barred with three heavy wooden beams. None of the orcs look like they are expecting visitors, at least for the moment.

Please make me a stealth check if you wish to remain unseen. Perhaps Marula wishes to look like a falling branch, or somethign similar.

As Marula sails over the wall, they reflexively wave at the noble looking archer...

...who is perhaps not a plant person...


The Perennial Crown

Marula:
The orc in the tower grins at Marula and gracefully nocks an arrow in her longbow, tracking the leshy's descent. The orcs eating lunch stare, mouths agape, as Marula drifts through the air — almost to their very feet.

The one in the tower keeps a bead on Marula as she calls down, in perfect and unaccented common:

You there! Halt! Hands up where I can see them!

The two orcs look confused, trying to decide if Marula is some strange plant or what.

The archer sighs. They're just a leshy, fools! Tie them up.

Louder: NAR! We got company! NAR!

Cai, Kyrie, Guyzer, G'nak:

From the other side of the palisade, you hear a deep voice calmly shouting in perfect Taldane (common):

You there! Halt! Hands up where I can see them!
Then a brief pause.
They're just a leshy, fools! Tie them up.
Another heartbeat.
Louder: NAR! We got company! NAR!

I'm not putting you in initiative quite yet. You can each take one Action based on this information, based on how you'd react.

Is it an action to facepalm?

Cai Fen spits in his hands and runs toward the palisade, getting ready to clamber up it.

Marula takes a step back, honestly showing their anxiety about such large potential captors.

"I wish to offer... friendship to those who enjoy... a forest unspoiled."


F Human Champion/3

Kyrie thinks how cool it would be to just charge through the palisade, but she already did one cool thing, so probably best to hold off for now anyways and not push her luck.

She rushes up to the palisade and begins to climb.

Marula:

One of the orcs near the cookfire produces some twine, the other steps up to Marula. They can smell the fresh meat on the orc's breath.

The one in the tower looks past the palisade, but can't seem to locate anyone. We're here to spoil this forest… and its people. I guess that means you and your friends. How many of you are there? Speak! She keeps the arrow beaded on Marula.

From inside the shoddy hut to their right, Marula hears a horrible voice that sounds like boulders grinding.

ME NOT NAR! LORD NAR! USE TITLE OF ORC KING! LORD NAR! In a slightly-less-loud voice: Up!

Cai, Kyrie, G'nak, Guyzer:
You hear Marula temporize.

The same voice in common:
We're here to spoil this forest… and its people. I guess that means you and your friends. How many of you are there? Speak!

You then hear a new voice — deep, and angry:
ME NOT NAR! LORD NAR! USE TITLE OF ORC KING! LORD NAR! In a slightly-less-loud voice: Up!

Everyone can take another action. Kyrie will climb 5 feet. (CLimb rules: https://2e.aonprd.com/Actions.aspx?ID=33

Marula talks some more, attempting to give his friends some warning.

"Can't we talk some more...?
There's no need to point your bow...
Why not come down, talk?"

They raise their shield uncertainly, conveying abundant feebleness in the motion.

Marula:
That does not pass the intelligent orc's perception DC. Sorry :(

The orc grins wryly. You'll have to do better than that. She can tell Marula is passing tactical info along to someone within earshot. She shouts: To arms! They're storming the outer gate!

This Lord Nar — whoever he is — roars from inside the hovel. CRUSSHHH BONES!

Marula hears the sound of clattering armor — perhaps a half-dozen creatures are scrambling to arms inside the hut.

Cai, Kyrie, G'nak, Guyzer:

You hear the same confident voice: You'll have to do better than that. The voice then shouts: To arms! They're storming the outer gate!

The boulder-like voice rumbles: CRUSSHHH BONES!

The time to fight — and to save Marula — is upon you!

"Unfortunate, that.

It always prevails."

Marula prays, calling nutrient from the ground to strengthen their bark.

Then they raise their shield, ready to be pummeled.

Guyzer moves up toward the gate and then drops his scroll to begin casting a spell.

Small particles of green glowing specks swirl out from his palm and make their way to Kyrie. They infuse into her body passing along their color where they enter.

As the color spreads along her skin, Kyrie begins to grow into the size of a green skinned, small giant.


The Perennial Crown

I'm going to say G'nak can drop the smoke bomb in initiative.

Marula:
The orcs grin, but then drop their ropes and pull daggers when they hear the wall's being breached.

Dagger: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (16) + 7 = 23
Piercing, resist 2: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (4) + 3 = 7 -2=5

Orc one walks behind Marula, twirling his knife, and stabs them.

Dagger: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (20) + 7 = 27
Piercing, resist 2: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (5) + 3 = 8 Doubled to 16 -2 = 14

Orc two then winks at his buddy and flanks Marula, taking a laughing derisively as the dagger drives into the leshy's torso with deadly efficiency.

The orc in the tower throws a javelin at Marula for fun.

Javelin, second range increment: 1d20 + 4 - 2 ⇒ (19) + 4 - 2 = 21
Piercing, resist 2: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (3) + 3 = 6 net 4 after resist
Marula is at -20/35 HP

Five more orcs run from the hut and begin surrounding Marula. They all have javelins in one hand and daggers in the other!

Then… the rotting hide serving for the hut's door is torn aside as Lord Nar shambles out — a corpulent orc with hateful, beady eyes. He shoves his way past the orcs and looks directly at Marula, flying into a rage! NAR CRUSH PLANT BONES!

Greytusk scoffs at the leshy below and turns her attention to the palisade.

On the other side of the palisade, you hear Marula cry out in pain and this "Lord Nar" scream: NAR CRUSH PLANT BONES!

This is fine. Everything's Fine. Round 1-2

DC 15 climb to get up the Palisade as an Action. Success=climb 5', Crit = climb 10 feet. Crit fail = fall and prone.

Once you're over:
You see a well-trodden yard. A small wooden hut is built against the southern rock wall, facing a squat stone fortress to the North. A tower stands at the north end of the edifice, with a covered roof. A two-story dome anchors the southern end of the fortress. The structure has a brooding look about it, with narrow windows set between heavy pillars of rock.

There are many orcs here, as well as a corpulent and angry-looking one. There are also two orcs under the covered roof of the 30-foot tall tower.

The gate is barred with three heavy wooden beams. None of the orcs look like they are expecting visitors, at least for the moment.

Hearing his friend in danger, Cai Fen nearly runs up the palisade!

Athletics, Climb: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (20) + 10 = 30 That's 15 feet of movement, enough to get me 5 feet up and 10 feet down

He lets go of the palisade on the other side and lands gently on the grass. Free action - release, fall 5 feet.

Looking around he sees a veritable horde of Orcs and he rushes to Marula's side, striking one of the orcs flanking it. Stride, strike.

Strike, Nonlethal, Confident finish: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (16) + 9 = 25 vs flat footed
Damage: 1d4 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 3 = 5
Confident Finish: 2d6 ⇒ (6, 5) = 11

Marula, move to my side!

Reaction: Opportune Riposte:

Trigger: An enemy misses Cai Fen by 10 or more, or rolls a natural 1 on an attack. Cai Fen must have performed confident finish on his last turn or must have panache (which he loses).

Result:
Strike: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (16) + 9 = 25 (-1 if unarmed, -3 if unarmed and attempting lethal damage)
War flail damage: 1d10 + 3 ⇒ (4) + 3 = 7 +2 with panache.
Punch damage: 1d4 + 3 ⇒ (3) + 3 = 6 +2 with panache.


The Perennial Crown

Cai takes down the orc with a punch to the ear.

The orc on the tower gracefully leaps into action, aiming carefully before unleashing a volley of arrows at the gymnast! She was in delay.

Attacks:

Arrow One: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (10) + 11 = 21
Arrow Two: 1d20 + 11 - 5 ⇒ (16) + 11 - 5 = 22
Arrow: 1d20 + 11 - 10 ⇒ (17) + 11 - 10 = 18
piercing: 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 3 = 9
piercing: 1d8 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 3 = 5

Cai feels two arrows jolt into his shoulder. A third whizzes by his ear, thunking into the heavy beam.

Athletics: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (20) + 11 = 31

She lowers herself to the ground as easily as rolling out of bed. She then draws her shield.

I’m assuming she wouldn’t have had her shield on to throw Marula and that she didn’t have time to put it on before climbing. I also think climbing might require two hands to do without a penalty? Idk

Marula sends a blast of water up at the gate's bars, hoping to knock at least one open.

Hydraulic push: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (6) + 9 = 15
Bludgeoning damage + 5' push: 3d6 ⇒ (5, 6, 3) = 14

They stand their ground, relying on concealment from the cloud and a raised shield (3rd action) – not to mention Kyrie's looming, comforting presence.

Meanwhile, Ina moves towards her friend's strange yells of pain.


The Perennial Crown

Marula knocks away a bar!

Orc two looks fearfully over his shoulder at the huge champion and runs to the other side of Marula!

Dagger Attack 1: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (18) + 7 = 25
Dagger Attack 2: 1d20 + 7 - 5 ⇒ (17) + 7 - 5 = 19
Dagger Attack 1 Miss: 1d20 ⇒ 6

Strike 2: 1d6 + 3 - 2 ⇒ (5) + 3 - 2 = 6 Marula at -26 HP after block if used.

Orc three picks up two more javelins (there must be a weapon rack up there) and moves to a better vantage point.

The rest of the cowardly crew seem more than happy to let their corpulent boss, Nar, handle the massive Champion who just clambered over their wall. They turn their attention to the rest of the party.

To this end, Orc 4 runs around to the far side of Cai, and waves his dagger ineffectually!
Dagger Attack 1: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (2) + 7 = 9

Orc 5 runs up to Cai and pokes at him twice, hitting once!

Dagger Attack 2: 1d20 + 7 - 5 ⇒ (18) + 7 - 5 = 20
Strike 1: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (3) + 3 = 6 Cai -20 HP

Orc 6 steps in and swings at Cai twice; more blood flows.

Dagger Attack 1: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (14) + 7 = 21
Dagger Attack 2: 1d20 + 7 - 5 ⇒ (17) + 7 - 5 = 19
Piercing: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (1) + 3 = 4 Cai at -24 HP

Orc 7 steps back, draws a javelin, and throws it at the leshy — the weapon lands in the palisade!

Javelin Attack 1, cover: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9
Dagger Javelin Miss: 1d20 ⇒ 14

Orc 8, with nothing better to do, lazily chucks his javelin at the hurt leshy even though they havce concealment — what a bully!

Attack 1, Javelin, cover: 1d20 + 4 - 2 ⇒ (14) + 4 - 2 = 16
miss: 1d20 ⇒ 19

Lord Nar points at Kyrie. KILLLL!!!

Greatclub, Attack1: 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (4) + 14 = 18

Hearing the sounds of battle and not seeing the gate open, worries Guyzer. He calls out in ancient words, calling for aid.

The air above him splits open to allow a strange creature of that seems part humanoid and part insect.

I think some orcs could use some dancing music Guyzer states.

Oh! I got just the tune.. the fey responds before flying over the barrier and above the group of orcs. He begins rubbing two of legs together like a fiddle and a catchy tune sounds out.

G'nak drops back down, moves to the gate, and pushes it open!


The Perennial Crown

Graytusk nocks two arrows at once in her longbow and sprays them into the melee — one at Cai, and one at Marula.

She sends the last arrow at Cai, but it flies wide. She screams at her fellow orcs: Quit dancing, fools! Kill them!!

Double Shot: 1d20 + 11 - 2 ⇒ (12) + 11 - 2 = 21

Marula greats the open door with a pained smile.

"The world's children come.
Defilers shall suffer fire.
Flesh returned to earth."

They sic Ina on the orcs before healing themself.

Heal Lvl 2: 2d8 + 16 ⇒ (8, 3) + 16 = 27

Ina moves around the orcs, instinctively seeking to flank with her pridemate, Cai.

Bite @ No. 5 vs flatfooted: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (16) + 8 = 24
Piercing + 1 fire: 1d6 + 2 + 1d4 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 2 + (4) + 1 = 9


The Perennial Crown

Ina rips out Orc 5's femoral artery! crit, dead in one shot

The orcs dance, but are ready to defend their tribe (or tribe leaders) to the death.

The orcs are learning that Marula is unkillable with powerful healing, DR, and concealment. They hear Cai's taunt and decide to take him up on it.

Dagger Attack 1: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (11) + 7 = 18
Dagger Attack 2: 1d20 + 7 - 5 ⇒ (19) + 7 - 5 = 21

Piercing: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (5) + 3 = 8 Cai -36 HP
strike, strike, strike; Cai spends panache to do 13 damage to the orc as a riposte as he did not use confident finish last round

Orc 3 is slowed, but is still able to enact his plan: throwing pointy objects at people he doesn't like. He's just not very good at it and unfortunately, not intelligent enough to unerstand what the grig is doing to him.

Javelin Attack 1, second increment: 1d20 + 4 - 2 ⇒ (13) + 4 - 2 = 15
Javelin Attack 1, second increment: 1d20 + 4 - 2 - 5 ⇒ (6) + 4 - 2 - 5 = 3
Strike, Strike, Slow 1

Orc 6 stabs Cai in the neck — as the gymnast falls, he dances with glee and then turns towards Ina, but he's so happy he just flails at the big cat.

Dagger Attack 1: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (14) + 7 = 21
Dagger Attack 2: 1d20 + 7 - 5 ⇒ (4) + 7 - 5 = 6
Dagger Attack 2: 1d20 + 7 - 10 ⇒ (4) + 7 - 10 = 1
Piercing: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (5) + 3 = 8 Cai -44 HP
I believe this drops Cai at -44/43 hp.
Strike, Strike, Strike

Orc 7 runs up to Marula — dancing — and stabs twice:
Dagger Attack 1, concealment: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (3) + 7 = 10
Dagger Attack 1, concealment: 1d20 + 7 - 5 ⇒ (8) + 7 - 5 = 10
Miss, strike 1: 1d20 ⇒ 9
Miss, strike 2: 1d20 ⇒ 1

Orc 8 moves up to take advantage of a flank on Ina and stabs the creature who just killed his best friend (Orc 5)
Dagger Attack 1: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (14) + 7 = 21
Piercing: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (5) + 3 = 8
move 5', Strike, Slow 1

Nar bellows, and unleashes all his fury on the righteous champion!

Greatclub, Strike 1, raging: 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (16) + 14 = 30
Greatclub, Strike 1, raging: 1d20 + 14 - 5 ⇒ (15) + 14 - 5 = 24

Kyrie slams her shield down on the orc in her face, then takes another swipe at him as she pulls up. The smoke hits her eyes and the flinch ruins what might have been an otherwise good hit.

Flat Check: 1d20 ⇒ 16
Attack with Shield Boss: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (15) + 9 = 24
Damage (everstand, large): 1d8 + 4 + 2 ⇒ (8) + 4 + 2 = 14

She pulls back her shield in preparation for another blow.

Nar reels from the solid blows, his eyes rolling around like dull marbles lodged in pockets of gristle!

LORD NAR REALLY MAD NOW!

Quickly assessing the situation, Guyzer jumps into action. First he sends a mental command to the flying fey, then a quick flick of his hand to launch a mystic stone at the orc in front of him, and with a final contorting of that same hand touch Cai with some healing magic.

Concentrate/Command Fey, Elemental Toss at Orc 2, One Action Heal Cai.

Stone of Hitting: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (11) + 9 = 20

The Grig continues to play his tune. At one point a blast of focused sound is sent into an orc.

No save for those who failed previously, still dancing. Targeting Orc 2 unless he would be dropped by Guyzer, then target orc 6

flat check: 1d20 ⇒ 10

G'nak lights Lord Nar on fire! He looks confused: LEAVE NAR ALONE WHILE KILL BIG SHINY! BUSY!

Graytusk tries to down Cai and G'nak, nocking two arrows at once and shooting them — but she misses. And then she misses again.

Double Shot: 1d20 + 11 - 2 ⇒ (3) + 11 - 2 = 12
