Male Dwarf Ranger 1

I played the Silverhex Chronicles as Harsk before I realized how poorly built he was. As such, I decided to play up his love of tea (Harsk has a tea kettle, he's too good for dwarven ale!) and his inability to shoot anything or carry conversation. It was a blast!


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"Hmpf." Harsk grabbed the biggest sword he could find and marched out of the room, feeling unwanted.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"Did-did you just talk-" Harsk turns around, surprised. He only sees the crowd. "How does she do that?.."

"It's time to buy some tea leaves and head back to the quiet of the woods. I've had enough city life for another decade."


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

That would have been weird doing this quest first! "Who is this Tullivor guy?" lol

Thanks for a fun run.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Crossbow: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (15) + 4 = 19 Damage: 1d10 ⇒ 5 Harsk moves up a bit and fires at the halfling.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

When it's Harsk's turn, he will double move up the hill. This is a really bad angle to fire, and he suspects he needs to close the distance first.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"Yeah, she always did brag too much."

Untrained Knowledge (Local): 1d20 ⇒ 10


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"Maybe we're too late...Where did they go, Anwald? Something tells me you regret hiring them. We can stop them, but we need to move quickly."


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Is...that how I normally sound?

Now now, Seoni. Let's get the man somewhere nice and comfortable first. I've heard the Dancing Warthog makes a particularly spicy ale. Care to try some out, sir?

Diplomacy: 1d20 - 1 ⇒ (14) - 1 = 13


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

I think that's all of them except Silverhex. Time to wrap this run up.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"Thank you kindly, folks." Harsk says as he accepts their gifts. "The Pathfinder Society should be able to lend you some help if this nonsense happens again."


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"Damn, so close!" Harsk curses and fires another bolt at the priest. "Hayato's our best chance. Someone wake him up."

Crossbow: 1d20 + 4 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 4 + 1 = 7 Damage: 1d10 ⇒ 2 Ah, there's the hit rolls I expect.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Hakon fires another bolt at the "priest."
"Hmph. Selling fool's gold. I'm sure the real gods are proud of ya."

Crossbow: 1d20 + 4 + 1 ⇒ (7) + 4 + 1 = 12 Damage: 1d10 ⇒ 1


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Harsk moves to the side and fires a crossbow bolt at the "priest"

Crossbow: 1d20 + 4 + 1 ⇒ (9) + 4 + 1 = 14 Damage: 1d10 ⇒ 3
My best attack roll yet?


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Hakon: MAN OF ACTION!


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Harsk rolls his eyes at Folloch's direction. Harsk believes in the rules of nature first and foremost, and he's more confident that Folloch corrupted the minds of the weak than actually convinced them of some kind of truth.

So when Folloch points a shiny rod, mumbles some gibberish, and is surprised nothing happens, Harsk breaks into laughter. He can't help it. "Wait, am I supposed to get on my knees now?"

Suddenly the crowd turns hostile. "Now I've done it. I said I would keep my mouth shut, too."

Alright, maybe I can distract everyone and then hide.
Bluff: 1d20 - 1 ⇒ (9) - 1 = 8
Stealth: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (10) + 6 = 16
"What's that? Those infidels over there must have ruined Folloch's sermon!" Hey, it was worth a shot. I'm causing a distraction so I can hide, which is technically 2 skills for one action.

Plan B. I'll try to weave my way through the crowd. Escape Artist: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (19) + 3 = 22

"Back off if you know what's good for ya! Touch me and you'll be cursed by evil!" Intimidate: 1d20 - 1 ⇒ (10) - 1 = 9 Bah, this is much easier when you're hiding among trees.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Now even Reiko is cracking jokes at Harsk's expense. He can't help but smile...briefly. Nope, back to a frown.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"I'll try to keep my mouth shut then. I'm pretty good at that, admittedly."


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Untrained Knowledge(Local): 1d20 ⇒ 16

Razmiran. What's up with this place?


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"Let's grab this tapestry and drag that woman to the authorities. I don't feel like spilling blood, desecrating tombs and feuding in a graveyard."

Colony's next, I assume. We want to save Silverhex for last.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Appraise: 1d20 ⇒ 15

"Hmm. What's the point of this fancy tapestry if no one is going to see it? I guess this is it though." Harsk begins looking around to see if there is anything of interest.

Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (7) + 6 = 13 +2 if this is due to unnatural stonework


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"Hakon. Perhaps one of your songs would give us that extra oomph."

Strength check: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (7) + 2 = 9


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"Oh, I get it. Guess we gotta make a mess here. Let's knock that obelisk over."

Climb: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (19) + 2 = 21
Strength: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (14) + 2 = 16


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Question: Would we be able to move the bust of Tuvillor? I'm guessing we need to get it out of the shade during sundown.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"I wonder if it meant the last child. Son or Daughter." Harsk muses. "To think they would waste time even in death over a stupid feud."


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

If she's dead "The line between pride and foolishness is thin."


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Harsk breathes a sigh of relief and doesn't bother the horse as it flees.

"Justice cares not for your title or your money."

Assuming she's still up.
Battleaxe, enraged: 1d20 + 3 + 1 ⇒ (17) + 3 + 1 = 21 Damage: 1d8 + 2 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 2 + 1 = 8

More likely, she's been KOed
Heal: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (13) + 6 = 19
"Hmph. Now I have to waste time stopping the bleeding and dragging you to custody. That trinket you coveted is the price you'll pay."


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"As you wish. This horse will pay for your arrogance."


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Harsk double moves up to the horse

"Give up, lady. I'd rather not hurt the horse any more, but you are under arrest."


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Looks like all enemies are in melee.

Harsk takes the long way around the noblewoman, trying to flank her with Quinn. He puts away his crossbow and pulls out his Battleaxe.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

I moved you, Quinn.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"For food or survival. Those are the only reasons to draw blood. A shame you never learned that. Beautiful hawk, by the way."

Crossbow at the Hawk: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (7) + 4 = 11 Damage: 1d10 ⇒ 7 Man, when's the last time Harsk actually hit something?


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"Unbelievable. First murder, now blackmail. This is why I stick to the woods..." Harsk shakes his head before resigning to his fate. "Let's go and get this over with we need a guide, anyway."


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (6) + 6 = 12
Sense Motive: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 = 5 Oh boy.

"You must've been deep in prayer. Not one hundred feet from here, some nobleman with a badger's crest was recently slain. No guards around here, either."


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Turning to Quinn and Reiko, Harsk whispers. "She didn't seem to worried about us. Not even concerned about our weapons. Keep an eye on her, she's hiding something."

Crossing his arms, Harsk turns to Rhiannon Sarvio. "Hmph. I don't care much for noble gratitude, but I don't like wanton murder in the middle of a graveyard. We'll help you get what's yours if you can guide us there, or point in the right direction."


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Sense Motive: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (17) + 2 = 19
Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (12) + 6 = 18

Harsk nods silently, trying to gauge her attitude. I'm probably being too suspicious he notes.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"Hey Kyra, any religious significance you can gleam from these? I say we head toward the southern building here- no point triggering that rune trap unless we have to."

"I'd hate to take any unnecessary risks." Harsk notes while slapping his gut. He didn't forget the memory of that greatsword buried in his chest.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

According to the SRD, Ninja don't have trapfinding, so they can't disable magical traps.

Harsk isn't sure how Reiko approached like that without his notice, but the area does seem deserted.

"Alright, let's avoid walking into the trap, there. What's over there?"
Harsk follows the footsteps towards A3, investigating the steps to note any details (what kind of creature and were these steps organized? Panicked? Running?)
Survival(Tracks): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (9) + 7 = 16

Happy 40th birthday, Reiko.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Stealth: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (5) + 6 = 11
Perception: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (9) + 6 = 15 Add +2 for noticing unusual stonework

Harsk quietly heads in, keeping his eyes open and wondering when Reiko will appear behind him. She's really good at that.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"Dead out in the open? How long has this corpse been here?"

Survival: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (7) + 6 = 13
Heal: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (11) + 6 = 17


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Untrained Knowledge (Local): 1d20 ⇒ 6

More corruption. Man's greed knows no bounds, and this Tullivor character sounded like the worst. Harsk is grumpy as usual, and isn't paying attention to the cemetary.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"I guess they were just thieves. Such a waste." Harsk notes as he stares at what's left of the attackers. "Let's get these back to town already. I'm low on honey for my peppermint tea."

Sounds good to me, Reiko. Mausoleum, then?


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Harsk has an uncharacteristic smile on his face. He quickly reverts to his default scowls as soon as he realizes it.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

"Hayato, is your horse alright?" Harsk looks at Hayato's mount, worried. Hopefully Kyra's channelling got to it in time.

Heal: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (13) + 6 = 19


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Harsk fires a bolt at the remaining archer, but his aim is too high. He then stands back up and dusts himself off. "Should've listened to us, kids."

crossbow: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (4) + 4 = 8 Damage: 1d10 ⇒ 4


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

I'm pretty sure you keep your dex bonus while prone. Reiko's best bet is to flank with Hayato.

Harsk is also taking advantage of that right now to keep his AC high. He doesn't want to provoke an AoO standing up, and he doesn't want to get shot after standing either. He'd try to crawl, but there's no unoccupied squares to stop in out of her range.

So, total defense until she dies or a space opens up.


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Harsk gasps, awake thanks to Kyra's quick save. "I owe you, Kyra. I'll brew some of my special tea leaves when we get back."

Harsk notes the Kellid woman knocked down and prone, frantically swinging her greatsword at Hayato. She seems quick to react though and threatens Harsk with the blade. He also notices the two archers raining arrows upon them, and realizes he's overall better off staying down. If this woman weren't swinging in his direction he would have let a bolt fly.

Total Defense +4 AC + Wield the crossbow.

Current HP: 6, AC: 20


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Reiko can put on a disguise in no time flat!


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

Harsk continues his impersonation of a rock.
Current HP: -2


Male Dwarf Ranger 1

As Harsk moves up and prepares to fire, he notes two of the Kellids charge at him in a frenzy. He swerves to avoid one, but the Kellid adjusted for this and cut right into his abdomen. Harsk topples over, mumbling "Damn, the strength of youth." Then everything goes black...

Stabilize: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21 Made my DC 10 Fort Save.

Current HP: -2, Stabilized
