Quite an impressive display, everyone! You made quick work of those bugbears. I'll have to make things more difficult for you... :)

And enjoy your vacation, Three Elks! We'll be waiting for you when you return.

With Lathan leading the way, you'll be able to move through the wilderness fairly quickly. And if you still intend to use your familiar(s) to scout ahead, you shouldn't have too much difficulty locating what you're looking for. However, I would prefer to wait until Three Elks returns from his trip--he said he'd be gone the last two weeks of March--before I have you reach it.

So if everyone is okay with it, let's wait one week before we move on to the next part. In the meantime, feel free to continue to have your characters talk to each other as they travel.

Welcome back! I hope you had a good trip.

I'll work on moving things forward tonight or tomorrow.

Okay, Lucien is sending the illusion of the man in armor into the clearing near the tower (northeast side), but I'm not sure where everyone else is and what they're doing. Is everyone together? Or are you at different points around the edge of the clearing? And what exactly is the plan?

I'll wait to post anything in the main thread until I hear back about what everyone is doing.

Gazira is going a little behind the illusion.

The rest of us are trying to circle around the back.

I was actually a little confused about that.  I volunteered Gazira to go in as the diversion instead of an illusion, as I don't really see what purpose a non-communicative illusion serves here.  Nor is there any reason for Gazira to go out if an illusion does, because what good would that do instead?  We don't know what the situation is with the posted guard, so Gazira would be able to both hold his attention and potentially talk to him, where an illusion couldn't.

True, but the illusion provides you with a 50% chance of not getting hit with an arrow, should the guard decide to immediately attack instead of listening to you.  He may shoot at the illusion instead of Gazira.  So basically, your initial plan but with the added benefit of a possible decoy...can't hurt.

I volunteered because I'm not worried about getting hit by an arrow - Gazira's AC and HP are sufficiently tanky for the time being.  If the guard shoots at her, that answers the question and Gazira can just run off back into the cover of the woods.  If the guard doesn't shoot at her, she's stuck having to explain why she's accompanied by an illusory person she has no control over, which would paint her as super suspicious.
