Expedition 2
July 21st, 1538

The surviving adventurers set out at dawn, following the river north and northwest. Walking directly along the bank was problematic - that's where the vegetation was thickest, where the light from the sun could penetrate the canopy - but walking alongside the vegetation allowed the explorers to fish and gather from the river.

Gathering was lucrative, especially for Aakif and Cragmar, who between the two of them gathered great big masses of river prawns. The others - Oskar and Zekere, Ren and Thente - managed to catch fish with sharpened sticks.

ooc: 9 meals of prawns, 5 meals of carp, and 2 meals of catfish caught. Each meal weighs 1 lb.

Subtract 16 meals from the groups larder, supposing breakfast was eaten at Base Camp before leaving.


By the time the sun sets the group has reached the natural spring that serves as the source of the river, just in time to make camp for the evening.

Sometime after midnight:

Closel noticed them first, followed almost immediately after by Zekre - the large shapes moving almost silently down the trees at the edge of the firelight.

Spiders.

Big ones. Two of them, each the size of a small bear.

ooc: One of you roll initiative at the watch's average of +1.

The other PCs are asleep and prone. They can wake up as soon as anyone shouts.

"Shit," Zeke whispers, his eyes widening.

ooc: Spiders rolled a 21.

The things are moving before the whisper even leaves Zekere's mouth, pausing on the trees to aim their spinarettes at the two sentries. A long strand of sticky webbing flies past Zekere to hit the tree behind him, while the second strand from the second spider hits Closel square on.

ooc: Spider Turn:
Spider 1: Attacks Zekere with Web Shot. Misses.
Spider 2: Attacks Closel with Web Sot. Hit. Closel is restrained; DC 12 Strength check to break free. Attacking the web is possible: AC 10 hp 5, immune to bludgeoning, piercing, and psychic damage, vulnerable to fire.

Zekere and Closel may act. If the other PCs are awakened, they may act, though they are prone and not holding their weapons to start with.

11:35, Today: Closel rolled 17 using 1d20+2.  STR check


As he disentangles, Closel sounds the alarm. Because the sound matters more than the words, it's just ALARM! WAKE UP! GIANT SPIDER, TROUBLE!" and so on.

"Wh-huh? What?!" Cragmar wakes up, in a bit of a daze, and looks up at the spiders. Growling, he stands up while grabbing a javelin from his bag and throws it at one of the creatures.

21:27, Today: Cragmar 'Toothy' Rogers rolled 16 using 1d20+5.  Javelin at Spider 2.

Ren groggily pokes his head out of his tent before his eyes suddenly go wide. Scampering to his feet he grabs his spear from where he'd planted it in the ground beside the tent flap and rushes to engage the closest spider.

The little halfling fights like a cornered animal, plunging his spear into the creature's hide before following with a flurry of knees and elbows.

Action: Spear attack hits AC 19 for 10 damage.
Bonus Action: Spending 1 ki point for Flurry of Blows.
1) Hits AC 14 for 6 damage
2) Misses (7)

Guessing Ren did 16 damage total.

15:38, Today: Ren Hawthorne rolled 14,7 using 1d20+5,1d20+5.  Flurry of Blows.

Zeke yanks his lyre from his pack and points a finger at the spider who webbed Closel, snarling, "Mih hafr yhyw raz vorv dyqw wmrujyd!"

Waking from his slumber as spells and words are slung about, Thente wipes the sleep from his eyes. He popped up and moved a bit closer to one of the large spiders and called out "venenum spargo!". His hand flung out and a greenish spray of gas issued forth from it though in his haste most of it seemed to miss the spider, only barely sprinkling on one.

OOC: Move- stand & 15'
Action: Cast Poison Spray (10' range) - DC: 13 Con save or take 1 poison damage. Die roller still hates me!

10:32, Today: Aakif rolled 2 using 1d6.  Javelin Damage.
