Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

I know this is a great time for bad news, but unfortunately my computer went down last night. I’ll try to keep posting via mobile, but expect me to be sparse for a few days. Thankfully the local shop is still open, so hopefully I’ll get it back soon.

Giving up on hitting the spellcaster, Pyros aims for the nearest guard.

Attack: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (7) + 6 = 13
Damage: 1d8 ⇒ 5

Standard Action: Fire an arrow
AC: 18 (Touch 14, Flat-footed 14)

Noticing what Kalannah is doing, Pyros circles to the side and takes another shot.

Attack: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (4) + 6 = 10
Damage: 1d8 ⇒ 3

Pyros takes a shot at the archer and steps up to the edge of the entangled plants.

Attack: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (10) + 6 = 16
Damage: 1d8 ⇒ 6


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Pyros lets fly with an arrow.

Attack: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (2) + 6 = 8
Damage: 1d8 ⇒ 5


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Pyros draws his bow and nods to the others, ready to aid as much as he can.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Works for me.

"One of the most important aphorisms in the River Freedoms is that Slavery is an Abomination. Ending these slavers would show the locals that we respect their values. We should scout the place first, but if we can take them, we should."

CLW Potion: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4 He does, but let's wait to see about those channels first.

"Anybody got a healing potion?" Pyros asks, clutching one of the wolf-torn gashes in his side. He tries to aid the tracking as best he can anyway.

Survival: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (8) + 4 = 12


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Attack: 1d20 + 8 - 4 ⇒ (3) + 8 - 4 = 7
Damage: 1d8 + 7 ⇒ (1) + 7 = 8

Pyros continues fighting defensively, with a bit more desperation now as the wolf takes a chunk out of his leg. Hopefully I'm at least providing a distraction...

Pyros moves to provide a flank for Signy and Harrim, then attacks Signy's wolf.

I think Amiri fills the martial role, and Linzi could probably cover our arcane needs. But Teryll's idea of having a player play them has merit. But then again, that puts us right back into shoehorning someone into a roll they might not have chosen.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Sorry guys. Meant to post yesterday, but...it was busy.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Will: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (9) + 2 = 11 Additional +2 if it's considered an enchantment


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Stepping away from a wolf, Pyros takes a defensive stance, protecting his wounded side. He then attacks the nearby guard.

Attack: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (7) + 5 = 12
Damage: 1d8 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 5 = 9

Caught a bit off guard by the lack of any discussion at all Though I suppose turn about is fair play Pyros follows the others in.

Attack(Charge): 1d20 + 8 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 8 + 2 = 14
Damage(Slashing Grace): 1d8 + 7 ⇒ (5) + 7 = 12

Actions: Charge.

Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Pyros gives the others an incredulous look, but things the better of opening his mouth. Better to let the diplomats take this one, I think.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Pyros frowns, but nods to Jaethal. "I'd prefer to deal with him in honorable combat, but I doubt he'd oblige me with a duel, and there *is* merit in that suggestion, I suppose."


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

"We have swords when swords are needed. But we have more than that as well." Pyros says, with a nod to Signy.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

As the bandits turn to leave, Pyros walks slowly into the camp, careful not to look too threatening. Watching them go, he steps up beside Signy. "Well done. That was truly impressive." he says quietly.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Pyros stays back, keeping a tree between him and the blind.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Hacking down the last of the kobold dupes, Pyros wipes the blood from his blade and the shakes his head. "Blasted gnome got away again. I don't know what he's up to, and I don't like it. But for the moment I think we've wasted enough time on him. Let's get to that bandit camp before they start to wonder about their missing comrades."


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Pyros uses his (half-)elven senses to look for clues.

Perception: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (20) + 7 = 27

Not sure what I'm doing with perception here specifically, but I'm sure it's good for something.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Pyros's AC will eventually be huge, but it'll take some time to get there. For now I can boost it some by fighting defensively, but then I'm unlikely to hit much.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

"He can't be up to anything good. Better to deal with him now than leave him to do gods-knows-what."


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Pyros stands just outside the entrance, ready to move in and support or cut off enemies chasing his allies out.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Pyros grins mischievously and helps Signy search the saddles and baggage.

Perception: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (13) + 7 = 20


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Pyros eyes the man suspiciously. "We should be going now." he says to no one in particular.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Pyros moves toward Signy. While he wants to hear the man's reply, he is careful not to alarm him.

Halden gets up early and gathers his gear. The odds aren't in our favor here. There are a lot more of them then there are us, so we'll need to be cautious. I wonder if letting our captives go will come back to bite us. Certainly not all of them deserve the mercy.

"Strange visions? I didn't see anything. Is something wrong Pyros?"

"I...I don't know. I dreamt of thick fog, fog that obscured the land. Then a, well, a fey woman appeared, as if in a vision. I askher who she was." Pyros looks thoughtful, then recounts the conversation as best he can recall.

It was just a minute ago, so his recollection is really good. Almost like he copied and pasted the below from his PM exchange with the GM. With GM permission, of course. lol

Conversation:

"Who am I? Just a tear, shed by the land itself. The bitter sigh of nature... I am a nymph, the guardian of this area. A defeated guardian all me the Guardian of the Bloom if you wish." She responds in a whisper.
"I have come for your aid. We have a common enemy, and long have I searched for someone who can defeat him. The one you call the Stag Lord... as a storm strikes ruthlessly with gusts and lightning, the Stag Lord wreaks havoc with the swords of his servants. And not just in the world of people. The land suffers from the evil he brings! My forests and my flowers suffocate in this fog. Soon, even I will vanish, as the last ray of light at dusk..."

When she mentions this, the questioning look on your face prompts her to explain further.
"The fog hides his fortress as well as his dark deeds. However, it is not of his creation, but was created by a powerful druid which the Stag Lord has some sway over. Why the powers did not leave this renegade druid, I do not understand, but he was too powerful and defeated me."

She continues.
"This fog... it shrouds, entangles, suffocates... if only I could learn how it was created! But my powers wane. I was barely able to call out to you now. All I know for certain is that somewhere in this forest lies an old house, it echoes with the remnants of a strange power. The Stag Lord and this druid were both there once. This fog hides it from me, but the bandits at Thorn Ford should know its location. Go there, listen to the echoes, catch the whispers and search for any clues as to this fogs creation. Once the fg clears, the forest will be able to breath again and you will be able to find the fortress of our mutual enemy!"

She begins to fade.
"I don't believe in fate, stranger, but our meeting seems more than coincidence!" Her whisper fades as she disappears.

Pyros seems distracted and sluggish in the morning. When the party gathers, he says "Did...did anyone else have trouble sleeping last night? I had bizarre...dreams? Visions? It's hard to say. But anyway, I did not sleep well last night."


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

"We should try to hit the bandit camp quickly, before they learn what became of these. we can deal with the spiders afterwards, on our way back. That way we don't have to worry about the fangberries spoiling."


1 person marked this as a favorite.
Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Faerin is clearly an expert in moon radishes. lol

”I agree. A friendly chymist is never a bad thing.”


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

"There are consequences besides death. Take off one of their hands." Pyros says, with a nonchalant shrug. But he ponders. After a moment, he shakes his head at his own earlier pronouncement. "Then again, perhaps we should offer leniency once, in the hopes that others might learn from their example. Release any who swear a solemn oath to turn from banditry. But swear solemn oaths before them that if we ever catch them at banditry again, they will be executed without mercy. They will either turn from their ways, or they will serve as an example to others, both of our willingness to grant clemency and our willingness to punish the unrepentant and the oathbreaker. 'Oathbreakers Die' is, after, a creed well-respected in the River Kingdoms."


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Pyros stands to the side, arms crossed, watching the bandit selected for questioning. His sword is sheathed, for now.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

"In many places, theft is punished by the loss of a hand, or with a brand on the face to alert all who see a man of his crimes. Those might suffice. But I worry more about executing men who do not deserve death than I do about how to punish the guilty. Let us not begin our control with unworthy deeds."


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

”Then we should wait until they wake. A man should be able to face his death head on, not be killed in his sleep.”


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Cleaning and sheathing his sword as Teryll descends, Pyros nods when he speaks. "That's a good idea. I'll help." Pyros follows the other half-elf, removing weapons as they go.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

The Mithral chain shirt would be pretty much perfect for Pyros.


Male Half-Elf Fighter (Aldori Defender/Steelbound) 1 VMC Magus

Everyone, please tell me what combat options you are using (PA, DA, CE, etc.) when you use them. For instance, Pyros, why is your to hit so low and your damage so high? You should have any buffs listed as well, look at Terryl's post as an example.

My attack is low because I just copied from my last attack and forgot that I was dropping Fighting Defensively. It should be +9, for a 16. Damage is +4 from Slashing Grace, +1 from Possessed Hand. I don’t think I have any buffs running right now, unless Linzi’s been using Inspire Courage and I didn’t notice.

Gotta finish him before he gets lucky again. Pyros thinks, feeling blood running down his leg. He drops his defensive swordplay, hacking brutally at the bandit. If that drops him, I'll draw a potion of CLW.

Weaving a net of defensive bladework, Pyros is unable to find an opportunity to attack his opponent. Instead he steps back from his opponent sightly.

Caught off guard by the speed at which combat began, Pyros drops his bow, draws his dueling sword, and steps into the fray. Attacking the bandit at J11.
