:(

Well, it was fun nearly-pestering Evan and Nave in goblinny ways. ;P

Is this game dead? :( I hope not. I was looking forward to being a goblin gungineer.


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

Sorry I was gone. I did mention I would be last Wednesday, though. Sadly, much too far away to go to GenCon.

Taking aim from under cover of a bush, Wikiwik targets one of the adults in the remaining tree stand:

Chatka: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (5) + 8 = 13
dmg: 1d10 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3

Stealth - penalty for sniping: 1d20 + 16 - 20 ⇒ (18) + 16 - 20 = 14

Stupid leaves get in way! Should have burned tree, Wikiwik grumped to himself. Fiddling with Chatka, light glinted off the barrel of his gun, revealing him to those who were looking his way!

Just to let you guys know, I'll likely be AFK this Saturday. GM, feel free to bot Wikiwik if needed.


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

Ah, ok. Thanks. :)

Wikiwik snuck into a position where he could see at least most of the camp, if not all of it, from behind cover, and lay in wait for the big bad human woman the bandits had described. If he had to, he'd fire on the bandits menacing his companions, but he wanted to show off to Kejal by whacking the bandit leader if he could.

He raised Chatka to his eye level, peering slowly around the bandit camp...

Wikiwik will try to hide in a bush or something. Ready action to shoot if anyone matching Kessel's description appears, or if the rest of the gang gets into bad trouble.


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

GM, did Wikiwik manage to locate Kessel? Or count the number of people in the tree stands?


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

GM, does Wiki's 30+ Perception roll show him the last two tree stands?

Wikiwik winced when he realized that those who hadn't come scouting hadn't waited for the scouts to report back. He eased around the tree stands he could see, keeping his distance, but trying to spot who might be up there - or, more importantly, how many.

Then he looked for the two big bad bandits the prisoners had spoken of. Maybe he could get the drop on one of them...


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

Stealth: 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (20) + 14 = 34 +2 if in forest

Wikiwik disappeared into the underbrush, scampering soundlessly under bushes and through tall grass. When he judged that he was close to the bandit camp, he froze, his ears twitching as they picked up sounds.

Perception: 1d20 + 13 ⇒ (16) + 13 = 29 +2 if in forest


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

Wikiwik suggests sneaking up on the bandits, because that's his favorite tactic. :) Of course, a pack of us on horses might be hard to stealth about...

They'd have to be pretty blind not to know that we weren't the bandits they sent to rob Oleg if we tried to disguise ourselves, though.

Wikiwik will suggest that he can get off the (expletive suppressed) horse before they reach the camp, and scout it out on foot. Then we can all ride in playing Wagner and catch them with their pants down. >:D


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

I can see Nave's reaction as a version of LG. We were given the charter to tame these lands, so executing a bandit is lawful, and if he was a rapist, it could be argued to be good, too. Just not as merciful as Sarenrae's followers. *g*

Unconcerned with the fate of the dead bandit until Kejal shouted, Wikiwik hurried over from where he had been sizing the injured horses up for slaughter. "Uh, yeah! What you... do...?" He glanced at Kejal, wondering if she was having trouble seeing what Nave had done. Wikiwik could see it just fine. Maybe it was because he was closer to the body on the ground.

Still, a chance to one-up Evan was not to be lost. "Bad magic twins! Wikiwik didn't kill that guy!" he added, just in case Kejal hadn't noticed that. He struck what he considered to be a noble pose. "Me and Chatka never smash anyone's head in today!" He preened a bit, thinking himself very clever to have specified the day.

When he realized that Kejal was going to fly, leaving him to the mercy of a horse on his own, his giant ears drooped. "You watch it, horse! One wrong move and I eat you tonight!" he promised the animal before jumping up to clamber into the saddle.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

"Don't bring any bandits with us - can't trust them yet."

Wikiwik's sour face at Evan and Kejal's hugging grew even longer at the mention of riding the horses. In his opinion, horses were for eating. He eyed the beasts mistrustfully, but in the end he was cajoled into riding with Kejal - all the better to keep an eye on that Evan, who was never far from her.

Maybe he could find a burr to put under Evan's saddle...


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

"Maybe Gideon can sort out who's who," Wikiwik piped up. "Then don't need to talk so much. But how you know the others don't just leave and go banditing again? Maybe brand 'em, and second time we catch 'em banditing, we hang them!"


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

Wikiwik hesitated once he had squirmed out of his hidey-hole only to find that his target was reduced to a pair of boots standing on their own. He swiveled Chatka around to point at the other bandits, but none of them looked to have much fight left in them. "Pity" was a concept Wikiwik was still chewing on, but Kejal had told him not to fight people who weren't fighting, so he decided not to shoot. Besides, he had a hard time telling which of the humans were older kids and which were adults.

A bit dejected that he hadn't been able to show off in front of Kejal, he scrambled down from his vantage point to scurry over and herd the bandits into an unarmed group. Kids or not, a jab with Chatka's barrel or butt would keep them from getting any funny ideas. Especially with Wikiwik grinning his toothy grin at them.

Last night:

Wikiwik shot Kejal a wounded look. "I didn't scream! It was a war yell!"

Today:

Wikiwik hid under the catapult on the wall, watching what transpired outside with interest. He was waiting for Gideon's signal, his large ears picking up every rustle and creak of leather, every grunt and whisper. He squinted at Happs down the length of Chatka's barrel, trying to judge how close he was, and whether he'd be hard to hit.


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

The next morning, Evan finds that someone has chewed on his boot. ^^

Wikiwik will hide on the fort wall, assuming he'll be able to strike at Happs from there.

Stealth: 34

Init: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (4) + 6 = 10

He hid so well it takes him a second or two to crawl OUT of the hidey-hole. :P


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

Aid craft DC10: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (6) + 8 = 14 (If Alchemy isn't useful, the bonus drops to +4)

Somehow, Wikiwik managed to help Bokken rather than make a bother of himself. He clambered about the man's table, picking up solutions and herbs and throwing them into the mix.

When Evan suggested Wikiwik could ride a pony (though not now), the goblin grimaced. "Ponies just little horses. They dangerous at both ends and crafty in the middle. Maybe Evan should ride it."

He brightened considerably at Reafil and Kejal's remarks. "Yes yes! Wikiwik and Chatka shoot down leader! As soon as Lady Gideon says go," he added, grinning at Gideon. "I'll hide in woodpile, no one looks there!"

If someone points out to Wiki that the woodpile isn't the best hiding place, he'll agree to hide somewhere with better vantage instead, maybe behind the chimney on the roof or behind the catapult on the wall or something.


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

I just have to say, I really like Beads' little spider emoticon, haha.


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

Wikiwik shrugged. He generally felt that poison was a bad idea, because if there were any scraps left, you couldn't eat them. But he had been moved by the idea of saving the children - where would he be, if Kejal and Chatka hadn't argued for him?

"We gots to save the kids, and maybe take out the leader first to ruin their morale." Wikiwik was rather proud of having understood the idea of "good morale." He glanced at Kejal to see if she was listening. "But if we waits outside, or all up on the walls, what stops Happs from taking Oleg and Svetlana hostage? No good if they get stuck inside with bandits eating. Maybe find a way to keep Happs away from other bandits, kill him first, then get Oleg and Svetlana away from fighting. Then we go in, you point out badguys, Wikiwik shoot them!" The goblin beamed, proud of his plan. He ratcheted back a lever on his rifle with a loud clack for emphasis.


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

Impressed by this human who didn't run screaming as soon as he saw the monsters on his doorstep, Wikiwik threw the front of his poncho over his shoulder and struck a heroic pose, his complex rifle prominent in his hands.

"Your troubles over! We avenge leg-stealing!"


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

@Reafil: Swagger, thunder and pounce are more our style! *low five* ;)


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

I have no issues with that plan, either. Though I should probably say that since I live in Europe, my posting times aren't the same as in the U.S.


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

That did it! Thanks, guys!

I'm having trouble dotting Team Love. Whenever I hit Submit, I just get a preview and the Submit field again. :(

@Wikiwik: you found 80 gp at the library!

I did? Must have missed that. Thanks!

@DM: Any chance Wikiwik could have picked up a gunsmith's kit before heading out?


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

So, nothing at the library?

Wikiwik looked at the carriage uncertainly. Both Kejal and Chatka said he should help people... but if whoever was in there came out and saw a huge pack of monsters poking around, things might get ugly.

He eased up on the far side of the overturned carriage and, slinging his gun across his back, quietly climbed up to where he could peek in a window.

Stealth (forest): 1d20 + 14 + 2 ⇒ (11) + 14 + 2 = 27


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

DM, did Wikiwik's 33 Perception turn up anything at the library?

Perception (forest): 1d20 + 13 + 2 ⇒ (7) + 13 + 2 = 22

Wikiwik scurried among the dead, looking at whatever caught his eye, sniffing and tasting things he held up, and generally learning all he could.

What a waste, all those dead horses could be food!

Wikiwik will upgrade his armor to MW studded leather.

"I can take any watch, too," Wikiwik boasted, trundling along beside the others in his fine new armor. He did his best not to be distracted by interesting stuff around their path.


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

Wikiwik listened quietly as deals were made (literally) over his head. He eyed the other "monsters," pleased to see there were so many willing to work with each other in the cause of freedom. He restrained himself (barely) from making a joke about No-Legg, deciding it was a better idea to keep his ears open for what everyone was saying, or whispering. Forewarned was forearmed, Chatka had been fond of saying.

Four-armed! Ha ha! Wikiwik grinned at Lord Javoki. He liked this guy with the funny armor and big moneysacks he was willing to spend on a free nation or so. That was A-OK in Wikiwik's book. All the same, he loitered near the courtiers, who might offer another perspective on what the Lord said. They might have been too far away to hear for anyone else, but not for Wikiwik and his huge ears! Kejal would be proud of him!


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

Not as entranced by the food as he might otherwise be, had he not cleared the previous room of hors d'euvres, Wikiwik listened with interest to the odd Lord Javiki's speech, and to the quiet murmurs than ensued.

This guy is setting up a lot of little kingdoms on his doorstep? Either he's real big stuff, or he's crazy. But if anyone can make a kingdom, I'm in! He was a little surprised that he hadn't been seated at a table with the kobolds and other little guys, but he was glad to stick with Kejal. Someone had to look out for her with those Rivers twins around.

"Goblins don't like cautionary tales. We like to win!" He preened a little, adjusting his finery. He could get used to this - and he would, too, if they got that kingdom.

In other words, he was sold on the idea.


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

.!


goblin gungineer 1 HPs: 19 - AC: 19|17|14 - For:+2 | Ref:+8 | Wil:+0 - Per:+13 (+2 forest) darkvision, Init:+6 (+2 forest)

ARGH! For some reason my feed didn't show any new posts here, and I just thought the thread was quiet. Sorry I'm late!

Having stuffed as much of the food into his gullet as he could manage and still walk, Wikiwik finally turned his attention to the conversations going on around him. There was a kobold stuffing himself, much as Wikiwik had been doing... and scattered in clumps through the room, a LOT of other non-humans! This looked promising. With his human-sized firearm over his shoulder (he had flat-out refused to leave it behind, despite Kejal's coaxing) and his distended belly sticking out in front of him, he wandered the crowd, listening in on everything, his enormous ears picking up even soft conversations.

K:nobility DC10: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (17) + 4 = 21
K:religion DC10: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (18) + 4 = 22
Perception DC15: 1d20 + 13 ⇒ (3) + 13 = 16

Huh, some human woman with Calistria's holy symbol of daggers hanging out in a pack around some noble... Tough-looking fellow with a pack of fighters of a number of races (no goblins, though). Ah! There was Kejal, standing with Evan and Nave - he had a bad feeling about those two - and some human woman in leathers and fur. Feeling very fine indeed in his borrowed finery, Wikiwik strutted over towards them.

"I'm Wikiwik," he announced politely (at least, politely for a goblin) in the middle of their conversation, since the strange woman didn't know who he was. "Master gunner! Who are you? Did you eat all those foxes yourself?" he asked curiously, eyeing her clothes. He was downright erudite for a goblin, but still had a goblin way of reasoning, despite the hard work of his mentors.

"You smart to hire us. We set fire to the enemies of freedom," he added with a too-wide goblin grin, displaying his myriad slender teeth. Maybe he was joking. Maybe.


Just wanted to say that I'll be attending a wedding on Saturday, so I won't be able to post while I'm gone.

My suggestions for meetups are as follows:

I like either of these as well. Roleplaying out the meeting would absolutely be fun! (Apologies in advance for the hard time Wikiwik will give Evan once Kejal shows interest in him. He'll come to respect Evan in time.)

I'm wondering if each group could start a kingdom, or are we definitely going to share a kingdom? Each group having a kingdom would be cool and solve some of the crowding for positions, and we could have some political tension between them later? But obviously it would be a LOT of work for GM Solspiral.

Also, I'm picturing a spiderling diplomat. The ritual of shaking hands alone is worth gold. XD
