Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Both hounds yelp and jump into the air at the sounds of the falling boulders. One of the beasts belches fire and runs around in place, searching for the source of the sound. The other, however, quickly recovers and latches its burning gaze onto the group, slowly advancing on Zora and the others.

Jak and Findarion nimbly leap to the top of the wall and darts forward to the lower level of the scaffolding, just beyond the corner of the wall. Apparently no one has noticed them.


Map updated.

Morg tries to stomp up some dust to distract the hounds from seeing Jak, but is himself startled at a rockfall somewhere.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Zora moved to interpose herself between the hound and Findarion, intent on protecting her new ally. She's not attacking the hound, not yet.

"Git!" she shooed the hound off.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
The nearby hellhound's eyes blaze at Zora's approach, then it growls and moves to strike.

Map updated!

Findarion, Zora, Morg, Mayon, and Jak are up now before the hellhound(s) turn. Magdrak and Mayon's familiar Myr can post now too, and amend their posts after the hellhounds go if needed.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Jak had turned back to look at his companions, to see if any would be following after him. Instead, he saw Findarion about ready to make a move when Zora 'interacted' with one of the hellhounds. And the hound went aggressive immediately.

Not wanting to give his position away with any loud spellcasting, he thought he would try something a bit different. He pulled out a dart, took aim and threw it at the hellhound. He immediately lost sight of the dart, and could clearly see it didn't hit the hound. "damnit!"

OOC: That was supposed to be dart, not dagger. Regardless...it missed. By a lot.
21:23, Today: Jakrynn Redgate rolled 6,4 using d20+4,1d4+2 with rolls of 2,2.  Dagger throw at H1.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
"Well this went poorly..." Findarion mutters, mostly to himself, drawing the newly acquired longbow and striking a weak spot of the hound while it is engaged in melee with Zora. He ducks around the corner of the tower immediately after and looks down towards the camp. "Not long before the cultists find out." He says to Jak as he gives his surroundings a quick scan.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
An arrow flies through the smoky air and sinks into the flesh of the nearest hellhound, prompting it to roar in pain. Both Zora and Morg draw steel, the cleric pausing in her attack to first cast a spell. Morg's massive blade and Zora's misty weapon both strike true.

Seeing its companion beset with foes, the second hellhound races to its side. The beasts both leap at Zora's chest, scratching at her armor and gnashing their teeth on the gaps in her armor. Both bites find flesh, and a blazing pain shoots through Zora's body as their jaws erupt in flame.


Mid round update! Map updated!

Magdrak and Myr are up now. Mayon (if you're still there!) can also post before the end of the round.

H2 runs up to Zora and attacks with bite - HIT for 4 piercing  and 6 fire.
H1 attacks Zora with bite - HIT for 4 piercing  and 9 fire.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Magdrak was studying the cultists' camp when the noise of a skirmish reached him from nearby.  Turning his head, he saw a group battling with a pair of hellhounds.

He muttered to himself.  "What in the 'Fells do they think they're doing?"  He considered for a moment whether or not to help, before groaning and shaking his head.  He started moving toward the action, mumbling "... gonna be the death of me, and I don't even know 'em..."



Move 25' to R3

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
One of the hounds goes down, pierced through the flank by an arrow from Findarion. Seeing this, the approaching man on the other side of the hill rushes forward, screaming incoherently, waving his flaming sword aloft.

The other hound sits back on its haunches, opening is jaws freakishly wide. A great gout of flame erupts from its maw, engulfing Morg and Zora.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
OOC: Ouch fire damage! I can handle the teeth, but the flames, yow! Nothing else to do buy swing away!

"Bad dog!" she cried as a bolt of lightning crashed into her first attacker, singeing him. She followed up with nasty swings of Rezsur while her spiritual hammer swung at him from behind.

Zora will use her reaction to use the tempest cleric ability to deal 2d8 (half on successful dex save) lightning damage to the first pooch that hits her. She'll use her channel divinity to make that damage maximal (so 8 on successful save, 16 on fail)

And then she'll swing at the wounded hellhound.

21:41, Today: Secret Roll: Zora Jilkina rolled 24 using 1d20+6 with rolls of 18.  attack with Rezsur.
21:41, Today: Secret Roll: Zora Jilkina rolled 18 using 1d20+6 with rolls of 12.  attack with spiritual weapon.

"Call off your hounds, or you won't have any." Morg shouts at the guardian.

He swings down again at the hound, snarling at it.

Findarion sends another arrow at the hellhound, then ducks behind the corner of the tower again.

Advantage from hiding.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Jak heard the hound's master coming after them and screaming. He let out a sigh. So much for the stealthy approach. He leaned forward from where he was standing and aimed his voice towards the nearest hellhound, though trying not to yell. "Hey pooch! Didja know the other hound gets better scraps'n you? Master must love 'em more!"

OOC: Vicious Mockery on Hellhound 1.
14:13, Today: Jakrynn Redgate rolled 4 using 1d4 with rolls of 4.  Vicious Mockery damage.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day

Even if Morg's save fails, he's still conscious right after the fire breath.

Is H2 frightened of Morg? If so, then it has disadvantage on ability checks and attack rolls while Morg's within its line of sight, and it can't willingly move closer to him, until the end of his next turn.

05:50, Today: Morg Danforge rolled 14 using 1d20+1 with rolls of 13.  Dexterity save against H2's fire breath.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Magdrak's javelin pierces the still smoking maw of the hellhound, and the beast collapses.

"BURN!" the guard screams, racing across the hilltop to close with Morg and Zora.

Quick footsteps sound above Findarion and Jak's heads as another guard appears on the levels of scaffolding above them. A third guard appears on the far side of the tower. Both pull out heavy crossbows and fire them down towards the party.

Seeing herself and Morg badly burned by the flames, she looked around at what was left.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Hearing the commotion above him, the elf investigates the scaffolding briefly. He fired yet another arrow, this time at one of the guards, but he must've seen where they were coming from and dodges out of the way.

He whispers to Jak as he moved backwards: "I've an idea, take a couple steps back."

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Zora could tell that the scaffolding had weak points and could be brought down, but had no idea how to do it. She focused instead on the guards. She focused on the closest guard on the scaffolding and commanded him to jump down. She sent her spiritual weapon against the guard Morg was fighting




Command: on G2 to 'jump'
Spiritual weapon hits AC 13 for 6

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
After being abandoned by Huet mere days into their hunt, Asano retraced their steps to the Spire. Finding the rest of the group gone, he took his time in tracking the party...and not terribly well. As night fell once more, Asano found himself continuing to follow the path left by his companions. As he was tempted to find a defensible area to get some rest, his hal-elven ears pick up the sounds of combat from over a nearby hill. He shakes his wands loose, and hurries to investigate.

He can barely conatin his elation as he finds his companions. Somewhat dampening the mood are the monstrous hellhounds, recently slain, and the numerous guard engaging his friends in battle. He doesn't recognize the second dwqarf or the elf, but judges that they must be new companions, as they direct their attacks against the guards.

Asano concentrates for a moment, his focus glowing with an ephemeral purple light. The magic coalesces around the heads of the two scaffold-borne guards, as the magic sunk into each guard's head, their crossbows transformed into deadly, venomous creatures in their hands.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Jak called out, but sort of like in a stage whisper, to Zora. "C'mon Zora! You're awesome! Time t'shine!"

He stepped away from Findarion, about mid-way between the two guards above them. He leaned back a bit and hucked a dart up at one of them, trying to see if he could throw better than the last time he'd thrown one, just a minute ago.

Move to AB-8.
Bardic Inspiration to Zora.
Dart throw at G-2 (or G-1).

15:53, Today: Secret Roll: Jakrynn Redgate rolled 13,4 using d20+4,d4+2 with rolls of 9,2.  Dart throw.
