Gorgath stopped and spun around to find the source of the scream.

Unable to find the direct source, he did notice the small group forming and moved closer.

Whilst he can, Gareth adds a little more to the fireball.

Sorsha looks at Berry "No, he almost feel on me and tried to kill me and the ground killed him I guess. I was just standing here"

No one else is immediately visible on the cliff above, but there may be clues there. You are definitely entering babdit country.

"I guess everyone just needs to be a little more alert. At least if he was a scount he'sunlikely to have communicated our position.

WE should put out our own scouts to go ahead and see if they spot anything on the road upcoming. Sorscha, you're capable of that, right?"

"Makes sense, he must have been one of the dreaded Lemming Bandits. I hear they attack by jumping off the cliffs onto people. Very dangerous. They've been know to stab themselves with arrows to frame people. Glad you avoided him. Lucky the fall killed him then." Berry does her best to come off as completely serious. She continues nibbling on the rations.

Gareth continues looking for a suitable fireball target.

"Lets put the body onto a wagon. There may be a bounty on it..."

Haveron frowned, a morbid affair this bounty thing was "Just dont put it near anything that will spoil" he said.

The caravan master of arms examines it. "And so it begins. Cast this dog by the side of the road. I recognize this arrow... Haveron, are any of your group archers as well? I expect more distance fighting... soon."

Re: Caravan to Al Menir
Haveron nodded "Aye, a few of these seem a fairly dab hand at dealing with people at range. I'm not too shabby myself at putting a few arrows in people. We will have a few to return any fire that we come across. But we'll need to be covered if we come under attack so that we can re-arrow our strings without requiring constant focus on incoming missiles.

"I had hoped to have hired more archers, but the woods elf I had heard of seems to have been occupied, it is often a random thing who one xan hire at the market. I hope your fire witches are good at distance work."

"I have direct magic blasts. They're really easy to aim, and they're quicker than a spell." Berry says. She's only bragging a little. She almost recommends her mentor, before a small surge or jealousy changes her mind. "I could try and teach you the trick after."

"Ahem, not all who deal with fire are witches! It is kind of my specialty. Though if we take that body with us, I can animate it as a decoy target if you are worried about archers..."

He is still holding his  fireball...

Re: Caravan to Al Menir
Haveron leaned into Amelia and whispered "Are wizards always so focused on spellcraft? I wonder if any of them ever just get drunk and attend court balls or celebrations he said with a grin.

Then, looking to the caravan official he spoke again WEll, the point is that we do have a ranged capability. So can offer some fire back should we come under fire. Plus, the caravans themselves would provide cover also. Anyone that is capable of scouting at all could potentially flank an opposing force. he said with good cheer.

"Now one spell I do have is good for parties, it is water to wine" she says with a smile. "OK, I will flank the enemy once we find them"

Haveron patted Sorscha on the back and grinned "See? There we have it. indicating their tactical maneuverability with perhaps an over abundance of levity.

Re: Caravan to Al Menir
As you ascend into the mountains, you realize that you will soon reach an area where another mpuntain will be to the right dide of the road... an are where it may be possible that you will be flanked, and very possibly with missile fire from both sides, although the nearly vertical face of the leftward cliff will be closer and more likely to be a location where things are dropped down...

"Can a few of us move to the top of that there cliff? It would be a great place to find ambushers. The Caravan should wait back here until we reach there to be safe...you will see me once we reach there!"

Gareth suggests, still holding his fireball.

Re: Caravan to Al Menir
"Agreed, a couple heading up to each side of this chasm could ensure that anyone at the top is distracted enough to not rain fire down on us.

I'll stay with the caravan, a shield is more useful down here. But if anyone needs a spare bow, they can use mine.
he said while glancing up at the mountain pass. This was definitely the place to execute an ambush. The man frowned at the whole concept of it... he much preferred an open battle where people were pitted against each other rather than sneaking and skulking in preparation for slaughter. It was certainly distasteful.

Amelia, stay close to me or the caravan. Use it as cover. I don't want you getting hit he said, leaving open no room for argument.
