Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
She almost jumped in shock at the damage the hawks are doing to her new dwarf companion and how quickly. She muttered a quick healing word (heal morg for 6) to hopefully mitigate some of it, then charged into battle shoulder to shoulder with him, war hammer swinging with precision, if not with power critical hit on a hawk, 7 damage) .




piss poor damage for a critical hit!


20:52, Today: Zora Jilkina rolled 7 using 2d8+3 with rolls of 3,1.  War hammer hit (crit).
20:51, Today: Zora Jilkina rolled 23 using 1d20+3 with rolls of 20.  War hammer to hit hawk.
20:45, Today: Secret Roll: Zora Jilkina rolled 6 using 1d4+3 with rolls of 3.  Healing word bonus action on Morg

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
Asano thanked Savra for the safe flight as he jumps from the back of the vulture. He cautiously approaches the fallen manticore, stopping at what seems to be a safe distance. As Morg is set upon by the carrion birds, Asano whispers a few soothing words, expelling a glittering cloud among the flying nuisances.


OOC:
Approach within about 40'.
Cast sleep, affects 27 hp of creatures. Spent 1 sorcery point for careful spell so the spell doesn't affect up to 3 allies.

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
Morg doesn't notice the red-tinged hawks attacking until they start ripping into him. He steels himself for a second, drops his axes, takes out Reszur and stabs at the most damaged awake hawks.
Bonus action: 2nd wind - heals 10 HP.

Free action: drop both handaxes.

Interaction: draw Reszur.

Action: attack 1 on most damaged, awake, (possibly magiced by Jak) hawk with Reszur - hits AC 16 for 10 piercing damage.

If that doesn't kill the hawk, then spend superiority dice for a Menacing attack (try to frighten target, adding superiority result to damage 3 piercing damage; target must make a WIS save (vs a DC of 14) or be frightened (it has disadv. on ability checks and attack rolls while I'm in their line of sight, and they can't willingly move closer to me) until the end of my next turn.

Action surge: Action: attack 2 on most damaged awake hawk with Reszur  - critical fail.

20:29, Today: Morg Danforge rolled 10 using 1d10+3 with rolls of 7.  HP recovered from second wind.
20:30, Today: Morg Danforge rolled 16 using 1d20+7 with rolls of 9.  Attack 1 on most damaged, awake, (possibly adv. 'cos Jak's magic,) hawk with Reszur (magical dagger).
20:32, Today: Morg Danforge rolled 10 using 1d4+7 with rolls of 3.  Reszur (magical dagger) piercing damage for attack 1.
20:35, Today: Morg Danforge rolled 3 using 1d8 with rolls of 3.  ?Possible superiority dice Menacing attack for attack 1.
20:38, Today: Morg Danforge rolled 8 using 1d20+7 with rolls of 1.  Attack 2 on most damaged, awake, (possibly adv. 'cos Jak's magic,) hawk with Reszur (magical dagger).

Edit: drop both handaxes, not just 1, because 2nd wind prevents dual wielding.

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
In a flurry of attacks, most of the birds harrying Morg fall in a heap of red feathers.

A single bird aims its beak at the dwarf's head but he swats it away easily.



Asano, you should check for Wild Magic surge from last round.

The remaining bird attacks Morg and misses.

Round 1 Summary

Jak does nothing.

Mayon attacks a blood hawk with Agonizing Blast - HIT for 5 force.

Asano casts Sleep - 3 of the birds fall asleep in midair, then fall to the ground.

Zora CRITS with her warhammer - 7 bludgeoning. A fourth bird falls.

Morg heals and attacks a bird with Reszur - HIT for 10 piercing. A fifth bird falls .

Round 2 Initiative Order:

Blood Hawks20 
Jak19 
Mayon17

She swung at the last bird, intending to mop up.

not that it'll matter with my initiative but:


22:34, Today: Zora Jilkina rolled 7 using 1d8+3 with rolls of 4.
22:34, Today: Secret Roll: Zora Jilkina rolled 22 using 1d20+5 with rolls of 17.  Hit war hammer.

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
*Morg dons his shield and stares at the knights.
*I'll post again with attack rolls instead, if the surge changes things drastically or any of the hawks are still hostile.

Action: try to figure out from their body language and expressions why the knights didn't do anything about the hawk attack. Is this a trap, test, or something else?

13:31, Today: Morg Danforge rolled 12 using 1d20+1 with rolls of 11.  Insight check on knights.

"Quickly, finish the sleeping hawks before the wake," Asano says, pulling his trusty dagger and approaching the helpless birds. He thrusts the blade deep into the sleeping bird.

Attack- 21/5  w/ Advantage vs unconscious bird

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
Zora swats the last bird out of the air while Asano and the rest go about finishing off the sleeping birds.

Morg sees the Feathergale knights standing protectively around the mounts back where they landed, weapons drawn, though they apparently made no move towards Morg.




We can assume you defeated the rest of the sleeping birds - no rolls needed.

XP, 6 blood hawks: 150
XP each: 37.5

She relaxed a little when the birds were defeated, but still watched the vulture and any other trouble. She wasn't going to be the one taking the manticore trophy, but she'd guard whoever did.

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
Jak had thought he found something. Something shiny. It caught the corner of his eyes and he turned his head a bit to look at it. It was something, or a piece of something, partially under the bulk and gore of the manticore. He knelt down and tried to pry it free to no avail, humming to himself and grunting a bit with the exertion. He started digging around it, trying to clear enough to loosen it. Finally he got it free and it was a broken piece of worthless glass. He let out a sigh.

Then he stood up just in time to see the attacking hawks get felled. He blinked a few times. Then looked around, and up, slowly to make sure he didn't miss anything else, feeling a bit sheepish.

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
Morg picks up a red feather, and then nods and smiles to Asano for his clutch magic trick. He turns and bows to Zora "Ta for the healing - who's your god again, Valkuh? 'Cos A need to make an offering to it for sending you to save ma hide."

He looks up, scanning the skies for more birds, and takes out his 2 handaxes while walking to the manticore.
If no one else wants to investigate or have at the head, Morg will try to cut it off, put it in a sack, and hand that to Jak.

05:31, Today: Morg Danforge rolled 6 using 1d20+3 with rolls of 3.  Perception check for more flying hostiles.

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
Asano watches as Morg goes to his grisly task, turning to the human priest. "Mistress Zora, our ragtag band is currently investigating a number of...odd occurrences throughout this valley," he begins. "Perhaps you would like to join forces with us? There seems to be a conspiracy afoot involving a number of unsavory characters. Proceeding alone may find you in dire need of aid when said help may be quite distant." He appears earnest and direct. "I cannot deny that you would be a powerful help to our own quests, but it appears that many of our goals are intertwined."

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
She smiled at Morg's thanks and bowed her head slightly towards him recognizing his gratitude. "He's not really that kind of god," she smiled, unable to resist the urge to teach a little. "We don't have temples nor shrines. Any ship that sails is his temple. Next time you see a sailor in need, lend a hand. That's the only offering he needs."

She considered Asano's offer carefully, seeming a little conflicted. She was on a mission of revenge, after all. Were her companions ready to join her in that?

"You heard my story back in the hall," she replied in a serious tone. "I am looking for Gar Shatterkeel, and I intend to do harm to him when I find him. Can your group commit to adding that to your goals? He apparently associates with your keel-boat captain, but are you prepared to accompany me in delivering justice?"

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
"Quite a few of us have some form of mission involving hunting someone." Mayon says, walking over in time to hear the last part now that the hawks are cleared up, a bit shaky after the shock of being in the sky for the first time. Of all the ways to learn he had a distaste for heights! "You'll fit right in on that front." He adds with a smile.

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
The giant vulture watches Morg perform his grisly task, then moves back to the manticore corpse to graze some more. No other movement is visible on land or in the skies, save the swirling mists.

"Well done!" Savra calls from near the mounts. "If you're ready to depart I think the birds are well enough to return us to the tower for the night."

"Many among our crew seek justice, Zora," Asano smiles, offering a hand in welcome. "You would be in good company, I believe. Morg, have you finished taking the trophy? It seems the knights are growing impatient."

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
She took asano's hand and shook it with a firm grip. She clearly wasn't a cloistered cleric type, her build more warrior than acolyte.

"then we will travel together, until our quests diverge. With Valkur's blessing may that day be a long way off."

She returned to her mount, still exhilarated from the hunt but also excited about the new alliance.

Morg nods to Asano, hands over the bloody bag to Jak, and walks up to one of the vulture riders, "Mind if A fly back with you? Ma hippogriff dinnae seem ta like me."

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
The birds kick off from the floor of the valley and spiral upward, their wings slicing through the mists. After a few minutes the nearby Feathergale Spire comes into view, guttering torches in several window slits muted in the gloom.

The birds approach the top of the Spire and land near another group of birds, being tended to and led away to the stables near the bottom of the tower. Thurl Merosska stands at their head, an expectant and frustrated look on his face.

"Were you more successful than the other group?" he asks curtly.


Map updated. There are multiple slides in the map, indicating what areas of the Sighing Valley and Feathergale Spire you've explored.

"Indeed, Lord Merosska, the manticore fell to the might of our humble band," Asano replies, gesturing toward Jak and his grisly burden. "We have returned with this trophy for your halls. Your knights were show great capability in the control of their mounts in combat conditions. I commend you and them."

Knowing she was more likely to offend than anything, Zora choose to let jak or anyone else do the talking.

"Hm. Then well done all."

He gestures towards the stairs leading down into the tower. "Please, join us this night in our guest quarters, and we'll make a proper presentation of your reward tomorrow morning, back here atop the tower."

The Knights lead their guests toward the stairs down, and to their quarters for the night.


Anything else before we close out the day?

I'll probably start a Day 6 thread on Sunday or Monday after US Thanksgiving. Happy Turkey Day all!!

Re: Day 5.2 - Off to Beliard
Mayon spends a bit of extra time in his quarters before retiring for the night, opening the window and sitting down to perform the ritual his patron had whispered in his mind the day previous.

Since we're not on as much of a time limit, Mayon will spend an hour and 10 minutes to cast Find Familiar and finally get himself a Sprite companion :D  Might wake up a bit later than the others, but nonetheless...

Morg takes off his chain mail and drops into a bed. He twitches for a few minutes before falling into a more restful sleep.
