"I don't know anything about a temple." Morg says, and rows faster to the shore.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Makari frowned at Morg. He looked at the shore and shook his head. "Honestly? They didn't tell us much. Just growled orders at us and we were expected to do as we're told." He gave a shrug. "If you don't want us here, and you want to give us a message to bring back, I mean, whatever."

17:06, Today: Secret Roll: Makari rolled 15 using 1d20+5 with rolls of 10.  Deception.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
The boat reaches the shore, and the group piles out, Tana hovering in the air nearby.

"Messengers, new recruits, or spies from the Eternal Flamers," Eyon mutters skeptically. "Who sent ye? Who's sending motleys down to me?"

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Magdrak steps forward, his battleaxe in his hand hanging easily down his side.  "Well, I am not sure you would call me a recruit, though I am new to the group.  I was hired;  I am a mercenary, you see, from the Bloodaxes.  No offense, but I do not believe in your cause, whatever it is.  Only believe in the gold I have been offered.  As for them blasted Eternal Flamers, last time I saw them they set a fiery beast after me, and for Valkauna knows what reason, so they can all go to Hades for all I care."

14:53, Today: Secret Roll: Magdrak rolled 18 using 1d20+6 with rolls of 12.  Persuasion Roll.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Makari tried to stay neutral and almost bored looking as the people on the shore spoke back again, just after the boat finally 'landed'. He stood up and hopped out of the boat, one hand on the side of the boat as if to keep it place, the other on his staff, which he held horizontally over the boat so it wouldn't go in the water. He glanced behind him at the water to see if seemed to be lurking in it nearby.

He glanced in a slight bit of surprise as Magdrak spoke up, having been silent up until then in the conversation. He gave a small shrug at the dwarf's words, but was getting ready for a fight. "Look. Whatever. If you're uninterested in putting us to work? Fine. We'll go back. Otherwise, can we skip ahead and move along? This is boring."

18:46, Today: Secret Roll: Makari rolled 21 using 1d20+6 with rolls of 15.  Perception.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
"Very well, I will find some work for you," Eyon replies, eyeing her companions and nodding slightly. "If you'll just leave your weapons here and walk this way," she says, indicating the stone passageway leading east from the docks, "we will show you to your stations."

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
"The shark in the water - is it a druid? A pet? Something else?"

Makari began to step away from the boat but paused as Morg began walking without divesting himself of weapons. He kept his hand on his quarterstaff but made sure he was on the opposite side of the boat from the shark as he readied himself for a fight, his magic ready to imbue his staff if the people reacted poorly to Morg's action.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Eyon ignores Makari's question and draws a shortsword, pointing it Morg's neck and barring his way forward. "Urshnora told us the Keep had fallen," she says, "and methinks ye all are the ones responsible." Her companions all draw weapons, clearly about to attack.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Makari shrugged and gave a lopsided grin as things suddenly deteriorated as he had suspected they might. "...boring conversation anyway..."

He brought up his staff, spoke a word of power to imbue it as he gripped it and ran his other hand over it. It light up, very briefly, with a spark of power that enveloped it. Then he raised an eyebrow as well as the staff and spoke a different word of power. Golden-green flames enveloped the staff just before he swung it out at the person standing next to him.

OOC: Cast Shillelagh. Cast Green-Flame Blade and attack the bad guy adjacent.
Hit AC 18 (forgot to add my Prof to the d20 roll below) for 7 bludgeoning and 6 fire.
If that hits, the bad guy next to him takes 7 fire damage.

21:31, Today: Secret Roll: Makari rolled 15,7,6,7 using d20+5,d8+5,d8,d8+5 with rolls of 10,2,6,2.  Green-Flame Shillelagh (last d8+5 is the 2nd target dmg if the attack hits).

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Magdrak sighs as Eyon draws his weapon.  He grumbles to himself.  "Someone is always lookin' for a fight."  The battleaxe in his hand quickly slashes twice at the nearest enemy, hoping to end the fight as quickly as possible.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Everything starts to happen at once on the crowded quay.

One of the tooth-blades reavers falls under Makari and Magdrak's attacks. Magdrak teeters on the edge of falling into the shark-infested water after a vicious shove from the wounded reaver.

Eyon snarles and rushes Morg, scoring a hit in the gaps of the dwarf's armor with her shortsword. Afterwards she gasps at a blast of magical energy from Tana, still hovering above the water nearby.

The air turns misty as ghostly shapes appear in the air around Durik. Bearded in misty white clouds, the stately dwarves in the mist flit through the air. One brushes past the green-tinged skin of one of the combatants, and he shies back.


Map updated!

The shark will attack Magdrak in the water if he fails his check, but otherwise will do nothing this round.

Gorm and Morg are up now for round 1, and Makari & Magdrak can post for round 2 as well.

Round 1 So Far:
Makari casts Shillelagh & Green Flame Blade. He attacks R2 - HIT for 13 total damage. R1 takes 7 fire.

Magdrak attacks R1 twice - HIT twice for 16 slashing. R1 is dead.

Reavers
R2 attempts to shove Magdrak into the water - Magdrak must beat a 9 on an Athletics or Dexterity check or be pushed back 5' into the water.
R3 attacks Durik - HIT for 6 slashing.
R4 attacks Makari - MISS.

Eyon attacks Morg - HITS twice for a total of 24 piercing .

Tana casts Agonizing Blast at R2 & Eyon - HIT R2 for 3 force, CRIT Eyon for 16 force.

Gorm (pending post)

Durik casts Spirit Guardians, designating all allies as unaffected.

Fathomer FAILS Wisdom save vs. Spirit Guardians, takes 10 radiant. Casts Vampiric Touch on Morg - MISS.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals


Morg steels himself and smiles after being pierced, "Suicide by dwarf?" His first slash finds purchase, but the second goes wide.
Bonus action: 2nd wind - heals 8 HP.

Action: attack on Eyon with greatsword - hits AC 26 for 15 slashing damage and WIS save vs DC 16 or be frightened until end of Morg's next turn.

23:20, Today: Morg Danforge rolled 14 using 2d6+5 with rolls of 3,6.  Slashing damage to Eyon from greatsword (reroll a 1 or 2 once).
23:22, Today: Morg Danforge rolled 1 using 1d8 with rolls of 1.  Maneuver: menacing attack on Eyon (WIS save vs DC 16) or be frightened until end of M's next turn.
23:24, Today: Morg Danforge rolled 9 using 1d20+8 with rolls of 1.  Attack Eyon (or Fathomer if Eyon is down) with greatsword.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
With so many people cluttering up the landing the bear does the smart thing, which is starting to seem a bit less surprising now, and mauls the reaver on the southern edge of the platform, resting one of its massive paws on the edge of the stone to stabilize itself and the little boat it has effectively claimed as it rips into the unfortunate man with its other paw, and bites him for good measure.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Makari narrowed his eyes even as he barely escaped the attack directed at him. His lip curled up a bit as he uttered the same phrase to cause the green flames to appear and engulf his staff once more. He swung out with it again and seemed to strike a solid blow, the flames leaping at the enemy and reaching, straining, towards another enemy close at hand!

OOC: Attacking the one in front of Makari (diagonally I think?), hit AC 20 for 11 bludgeoning and 6 fire, and if successful leaps to an adjacent enemy for 13 fire damage.

19:31, Today: Secret Roll: Makari rolled 20,11,6,13 using d20+5,d8+5,d8,d8+5 with rolls of 15,6,6,8.  Green-Flame Shillelagh (last d8+5 is the 2nd target dmg if the attack hits).

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
In a big splash of water the shark comes up out of the water, bites the bear, and presumably drags it down with it, as there is no longer a bear on the boat.

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Makari didn't like necessarily being stuck in melee range, but at least he had previously had some training in close quarters combat so he wasn't wholly unprepared and easy prey. He cast the same spell once more and golden-green flames engulfed his club as he swung out at the one enemy still in front of him, and the flames leaped to the one standing next to them, ostensibly out of Makari's reach, but not so!

Hit AC 24 for 16 damage (6 fire, 10 bludgeon) and the enemy next to them for 9 fire.

17:57, Today: Secret Roll: Makari rolled 21,10,6,9 using d20+5,d8+5,d8,d8+5 with rolls
of 16,5,6,4.  Green-Flame Shillelagh (last d8+5 is the 2nd target dmg if the attack hits).

Re: Day 10 - Leavetakings and Arrivals
Both of the remaining guards fall from another round of blows, the serrated blade falling from the reaver's lifeless fingers to clatter on the wet stone quay. The surface of the water next to the rowboat continues to churn from something beneath the surface.


Map updated!

Since the shark is the only remaining combatant, everyone is up now (though the shark is below the surface of the water, currently).

Makari attacks remaining Reaver with Shillelagh & Green Flame Blade - HIT for a total of 16 damage. Fathomer takes 9 fire. Fathomer is dead.

Magdrak attacks remaining Reaver - HIT twice for 14 slashing. Reaver is dead.

Shark (grappled) FAILS save vs. Spirit Guardians and takes 13 radiant. It attacks Gorm with bite - MISS.
