Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick

Jereth, still standing prepared to engage whatever comes through the door, nods once to Aradhel's somewhat confusing attempt at communication.  There were only so many options that she might be trying to explain and, as far as he could tell, all of them involved fighting in or through this door.  The which he was as prepared as he could be to do.

Aradhel nodded and poked Jereth on the shoulder and pointed to the other door.  Then to Jereth, then to Koram, and then to the other door again.

Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick

Jereth eyed Aradhel, obviously a little confused.  But he shifted as though to move over to join Koram at the other door.  He did so a little slowly, with a questioning look to Aradhel again.  But, if she seemed to feel that he had chosen correctly, the guardsman will continue on to the other door alongside Koram and Bella.

Aradhel looked to the others, held up three fingers, then mimicked like she was kicking the door.

Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick

Jereth looked to Koram, Bella, and then down to Aradhel for a last quick readiness check.  If no objections are "mimed" back at him, the guardsman rushed the door shield first; attempting his best impression of a battering ram.

Glad she'd been understood, Aradhel likewise kicked the door in.

Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick
Both Jereth and Aradhel slam into the door--and they bounce back off again. Something is holding the door back on the other side--if you had to guess, you'd guess it was an ogre!

What do you do?

"Seriously?"  Aradhel asked, bewildered by apparently cowardly ogres.  "Do we have to send for an axe?"

Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick

Jereth rolled his shoulder a little as he eyed the door, "Someone find an axe then."  Louder, at the door itself, he added, "You are trapped and we will break this door down!  Face us or we will dig you out!"

Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick
At this, though, suddenly the door in front of Bella flies open, an ogre standing there!!

Bella and Koram, you can act before the ogre since you're on Hold.

Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick
'Bella quietly and quickly moved back and to the side to allow Jereth and Koram access to the door.  When it opened suddenly after the failed attempt to break it down and taunting, she began an energetic swirling dance, focusing the energies of her distractive performance on the Ogre in the doorway.

17:55, Today: Silvijabella rolled 5,1 using 1d6,1d6, rerolling max with rolls of 5,1.  Performance -Confusion on Ogre.  Success!  Smarts -2 or Ogre is Shaken  1 PP remaining...

Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick
Koram gets his blow in at just the right angle on the confused ogre and kills it. Its compatriot steps up, though, and hits Koram hard.

Ogre #1 dies; ogre #2 comes off of hold and hits Koram for 2 Wounds.

Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick

Jereth stepped in on the second ogre, his shield high against the taller foe.  His longsword darted in along the mid-line, straight for the ogre's lower, easier to reach half.  Only to have the blade glance off this ogre's tough hide...

9 to Hit (forgot +1 Sword), 9 Damage....which does nothing!

13:35, Today: Jereth rolled 9 using 2d8+1, rerolling max with rolls of 7,1. Damage! 13:34, Today: Jereth rolled 8,4 using d10+1,d6+1, rerolling max with rolls of 7,3. Stabby-stabs, with Gang-up?

Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick
In reply to The Runelord (msg # 601):

Tanlis hears the screams and cries of pain carried via the echoing corridors. He looks one last time outside the walls, and decides the gnome and his mechanical servant can defend the walls with out him. He heads down to the others, his own tree golem shrinking away to nothing as it could not fit in the corrdiors.

OOC:
14:57, Today: Tanlis Half-elven rolled 5 using 1d6, rerolling max with rolls of 5.  Run die.

Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick
The temptation was to run off and go help, but there was something inside the door Aradhel was guarding.  She hated it, but she held her position, ready to strike.  The alternative was the ogre opening the door and either flanking them or escaping or doing who knows what else.

Going on Hold I suppose!

Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick
The ogre that Jereth hit looks confused, almost as if Jereth had done something unexpected by attacking him!

Next round is up! Jereth, you go before the enemy.

Aradhel, the next card you drew is a Black Joker! When you come off hold, you get +2 to all rolls and can automatically interrupt any enemies.

Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick

Jereth stepped back into position from his lunge and let his shield drop away to the side.  This cleared the path for him to whip the longsword up from low to high in a heavy under-cut towards the ogre's midsection....

Wild Attack - 18 to Hit, 13 Damage (after remembering the +2 from Wild)

Parry falls to 6

1:39, Today: Jereth rolled 6,5 using 2d8+1,d6, rerolling max with rolls of 1,4,5. Longsword Slash Damage, with Raise!

21:38, Today: Jereth rolled 18,6 using d10+4,d6+4, rerolling max with rolls of (10+4)14,2. Wild Longsword Slash!

Re: Chapter 8: Retaking Rannick
Jereth's blow winds the ogre for a moment, but he recovers quickly.

Meanwhile, the door in front of Aradhel flies open. The lathes, sawhorses, and other tools in this workroom lie in scattered, shattered ruin on the floor. The walls are smeared with gore, in some places forming messy graffiti. An ogre, his hands stained with blood, roars and prepares to smash Aradhel. Unfortunately for him, Aradhel is ready first...

Aradhel, you can re-insert and deal with this ogre if you like. Remember: you have +2 to ALL ROLLS (including damage) this round.
