Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Magdrak moved to the dead hellhound and retrieved his javelin.  He then continued positioning himself to where he could see the sentries in the scaffolding above.



If picking up my javelin is a free action, then I'll move to AD4, otherwise I'll move to AA3.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
At Asano's spell, one of the guards throws down his crossbow in apparent horror. Then at Zora's Command he leaps from the scaffolding, landing heavily on the ground. His fellow aims another bolt below, this time at Asano.

Still incoherent with rage, the nearby guard aims a blow at Morg. The blade strikes the dwarf just as its flames disappear.

Findarion and Zora can tell that both sides of the wooden scaffolding are quite dry, possibly from the heat emanating from the nearby bonfire. Looking at the structure from the inside, Findarion can see each level is supported by vertical beams that, if dislodged, could bring down an entire section of the structure.



Map updated!

Everyone is up now.

From Zora & Findarion's observations, it seems like a section of the scaffolding could be brought down by dislodging, removing, or severely damaging one of the few support beams on each level. Due to the "domino effect", the higher the level affected the more of the structure below it could fall.

Round 3 Summary:
Asano casts Phantasmal Force (Twinned) on G1 and G2. G1 saves, G2 FAILS and takes 3 psychic.

Findarion observes the scaffolding structure around him, then fires another arrow at G - MISS.

Zora saves from the hellhound fire from last round . Zora also observes the scaffolding structure. Her Spiritual Weapon attacks G - MISS. She casts Command - G2 FAILS save. G2 jumps and plummets to the ground and takes 7 bludgeoning. G2 is prone.

Morg circles G and attacks - HIT for 15 slashing.

Jak uses Bardic Inspiration on Zora. Zora has Bardic Inspiration and can add a d6 to any ability check, attack roll, or saving throw that she makes in the next 10 minutes. He throws a dart - MISS.

Magdrak double moves & retrieves his javelin.

Guardians
G attacks Morg twice - HIT once for 8 slashing .
G1 fires a crossbow bolt at Asano - HIT for 9 piercing .
G2 stands and approaches the wall.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
After realizing how shoddy the construction was, Findarion couldn't help but chuckle. "Watch this." He boasted to Jak, notching an arrow. Findarion leaned to the side and fired at one of the supports, the arrow hitting the weak spot perfectly.

14:34, Today: Secret Roll: Findarion rolled 26 using 1d20+6 with rolls of 20.  Shoot the supports!

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Not wanting to waste her inspiration, Zora took a step forward and tried to finish off the guard with her spiritual hammer and rezsur. This guard was tougher than he looked. She hoped she could finish him off, then focus on healing herself and Morg.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Jak had moved out of the way of whatever Findarion was attempting to do. He looked over at the guard and called out, though a bit quietly so as not to attract TOO much more attention. "What did the guard say when he fell off the scaffolding? .....wait for it...."

OOC: Vicious Mockery on Guard 1.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
At Findarion's artfully placed arrow, the upper support beam on the north side of the scaffolding folds. Fully half of the structure comes crashing down, boards and timbers splintering as the upper levels fall on the levels below. The guard stumbles as the floor beneath his feet buckles, then he is lost to sight in a cloud of dust and a hail of small bits of wood. A lantern, cracked and broken in the rubble, burns bright as the broken kindling around it sparks alight.

The southern end of the scaffolding still stands erect, seemingly unaffected by the collapse. Jak and Findarion shift their weight slightly as the boards they stand on quiver.

On the ground, Zora and Morg trade blows with the still enraged guard. The guard who had jumped from the eastern side of the tower stumbles forward and climbs over the broken wall. Approaching Magdrak, he draws his own longsword. The blade bursts into flame with a word, and he advances on the dwarven paladin.



Map updated!

Findarion carefully moves on the unstable scaffolding, wary it might give way under him, and surprise attacks the guard buried in the debris.

If the scaffolding looks like it's gonna crumble I'll retreat back and ready a bow attack for if anyone comes into view.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
G is still up? Whoa... Welp my heals are quite puny against the hitpoints being taken out, but don't think I can avoid them any longer :-(

I don't think I can use healing word and attack with spiritual hammer on the same turn, but will roll it in case I'm wrong... it missed anyways :-)


Frustrated at the durability of this guard, she focused on keeping Morg alive, while still managing to poke at the guard with her enchanted dagger.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Findarion's arrow pierces the guard as he succeeds in extracting himself from the wreckage of the northern scaffolding. As he darts toward a ladder leading up to Findarion and Jak's position, flames begin to dance out of the piles of wood on the ground, rapidly spreading through the dry boards as if through kindling. Dirty black smoke issues from the fire, adding to the haze around the top of the hill. The heavily wounded man's clothes and armor smoke, and he reeks of ash.

Zora cuts down the mourning guard with a vicious slash to his throat. With a last gasp of defiance at Zora, and a wail at the loss of his hellhound pets, he collapses to the grassy hillside.

The remaining guard, still looking around warily for an apparently imaginary attacker, takes a nasty cut from Morg's sword. Baring teeth he retaliates, slicing the dwarf across the midsection with his flaming blade. The flames dancing around the guard's sword extinguish themselves quickly after he lands the blow.

A voice calls down from a doorway in the tower, near the top of the scaffolding. It's too faint to make out specific words, however.

On the western slope of the hill, a woman dressed in greens and browns is visible ascending the hill. Through the haze it's difficult to make out her features, but she appears to be flanked by two small winged creatures.



Map updated!

Everyone is up now. The remains of the scaffolding to the northwest of the tower are now beginning to catch fire.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Jak hadn't had a lot of good options for the guard nearest them so he had waited, biding his time for a better option. That presented itself when the guard made his way up to their level of the scaffolding. Jak flashed a grin and drew his shortsword as he rushed at the climbing guard. The shortsword stabbed at the man but the guard as quicker than Jak had thought and the weapon missed.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Asano had spent far too long studying the skirmish. His focus flared with a chill flash, a thin frozen ray lashing out at the guard facing Morg and Mayon. He takes a position along some of the ruined walls, eyeing the approaching figure carefully. "Enemy reinforcements coming up the hill, guys," he calls to the group on the ground. He ducks behind the wall, not hiding, but making good use of the cover the tumbled stones provide.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
The two guards stagger under their multiple wounds, though they both manage to score strikes against their assailants. The wreckage of half of the scaffolding begins to burn in earnest below Jak, Findarion, and the guard in melee. The loud crackling of the flames drowns out any other sound on the western side of the hill.

The woman approaches up the hill, flanked by two sprites that flit to the top of the broken walls and gape at the burning wreckage of scaffolding, then up at the combatants on the remaining planks above. Her elven features look concernedly towards the scaffolding, then uncertainly at the melee on the northern side of the hill. She leans on her quarterstaff but says nothing, indecision painted on her face.

The definition of insanity was trying the same thing again and again while expecting a different result. Luckily for Jak, his aim was a bit better this time around so maybe he wasn't quite insane yet. He swung out the shortsword on the guard again, glancing down towards the fire that seemed to have started below them. He wasn't nervous...yet.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Asasno straightens as the elven woman approaches the tumbled walls. He smooths his clothing quickly, doing his best to ignore the crossbow quarrel still impaling his leg. [Language unknown:  "Eraughthi, ck wit ort o?"] he calls to her, tone impatient and frustrated. [Language unknown:  "K on di rita ce whiesscomverove erul een rohiha io red sanderous nd memi la, asll n to red e illncedin."]



Putting every bit of my noble upbringing in to play with this exchange. His tone is dripping with the frustration of one who is unaccustomed to having to ask for aid. His body langauge is tense, pained, and annoyed. There is a slight petulance, as though he shouldn't have to ask, as if this annoyance should have resolved itself before ever coming to his attention.

Re: Day 8 - A New Day
Zora's spiritual hammer flies through the air and crunches in the guard's skull, who promptly collapses to the dry ground beneath.

Jak's shortsword catches the other guard in the side. Choking on blood, the man keels over and falls from the scaffolding. He lands in the pile of burning timbers beneath, launching a cascade of sparks towards the dusky sky. The fire burns quickly now, starting to lap even at the remaining upright supports of the southern scaffolding on which Jak and Findarion stand.

The elven woman turns to Asano.  She gestures towards the burning wreckage of the scaffolding, whose flames seem to burn brighter by the second. She gives Asano an appraising look.

Behind the elven woman, three more figures ascend the slope. The first, a woman dressed in robes, is flanked by two human men. All are dressed in rugged clothing and breastplates. One of the men absently takes a bite of meat from a wooden kebab as he approaches.

As the last enemies fell, Magdrak turned on the other two nearby him.  "What the 'Fells do ya think yer doin', attacking a pair of devil dogs?  Then ye go an' light a signal fire big enough fer all of 'em ta come runnin'."  He gestured at the expanding fire of the scaffolding.  "I'm all fer takin' out these blasted cultists."
He paused to spit on the ground. "But use yer noggins."
