In reply to Dungeon Master (msg # 1):

Baddywhick takes a step back to recuse himself from the reach of the twig "thing" that was scratching at him and cracks his whip at the creature.  The sound of the crack is larger than you would expect, leaving it echoing throughout the woods around you.

"Taste my whip you vile creature!"

After cracking his whip, Baddywhick assesses the field of battle around him to see which of his allies needs his aid.

Baddywhick moves so that he is 10 feet away from the creature and uses the reach of his whip to attack it from a distance.

Baddywhick's whip slashes through the dried branches, collapsing the creature's abdomen. The twisted branches burst and scatter around the campsite, falling motionless among the surrounding shrubbery.

The two Twig Blights nearest Kaine whip their dried bramble claws at him. Only one prickly thorn manages to scratch his cheek.

Kaine receives 3 damage.

The Twig Blights nearest Bvlarlvb and Xalwin both wildly flail and thrust their branches at them but miss their targets.

Bvlarlvb - You're up!

Bvlaralvbina Samson-Jones-Googleplex Hemoglisternima-o? swings her rapier in the direction of the twiggy-poo.  She tries to tell it a joke, but the words are an incomprehensible garble of nonsensical fucking nonsense.

Bvlarlvb's rapier chops through the bramble assailant. Twigs and thorns crash to the ground. Some feed the campfire, which begins to burn brighter.

Xalwin - You're up!

In reply to Dungeon Master (msg # 5):

Xalwin scuttles away from the campsite and after a few paces, he shouts an angry incantation as he swings his wand toward the last creature that attacked him. As the last syllable passes over the tip of the wand, a bolt of arcane fire issues forth and streaks toward its target, blue as the equatorial waters of Nimbral and as hot as Baator.

Spoiler text: (Highlight or hover over the text to view)
Xalwin moves 25 feet away from all attackers and casts Fire Bolt. Attack: casting Fire Bolt at a Twig Blight. Xalwin rolled 12 using 1d20+5 ((7)). Damage: Fire Bolt (elemental adept: fire) Xalwin rolled 4 using 1d10 ((4)).

The arcane fire crashes to the ground just in front of the twig blight. Embers scatter into the night sky, and some into the twig blight, just barely catching the edges of the protruding dry tendrils. The twig blight seems undamaged.

Kaine - You're up!

Kaine's hand begins to move instinctively toward his waist before realizing he had unstrapped his sword to slumber.  Seeing it laying on the ground beside his bedroll he turns towards his assailant.

In an almost feral manner he flashes his fangs at the blight with a his and tosses his arms to his sides then lunges forward at the twig swiping with his open palms as if they were claws.

Kaine rolled 8 using 1d20+6.  Attack: unarmed strike against the twig blight.
Kaine rolled 5 using 1d8+4.  Damage: unarmed strike.
If struck the opponent must succeed a DC 18 strength save or be grappled.

Kaine lunges and flails his arms at the twig blights but does not manage to make contact.

Baddywhick takes a step back to assess the situation.  One of the xreacking creatures was engaged with Xalwin, while Kaine looked a bit overmatched by the two that were in melee with him.  With a glance to the twig blight he had just fell, Twigglehoff.  I will name you Twigglehoff.  You were a worthy foe.  I will write your name in my book of the fallen.

Baddywhick looks up at one of the creatures beside Kaine.  "This will teach you not to mess with us you...you...stupid twig thing!"

Baddywhick scrambles across the camp to position himself perpendicular to Kaine but still far enough away from the twig blight that he was safely out of reach.  He grins and cracks his whip at the shambling, bundle of sticks.  The sound of the whip has a snap to it this time.  As he flicks his wrist just right, he concentrates, and a wave of energy is released from the split leather tassels at the tip of the whip.  Baddywhick reaches through space and forces the whip's tip to speed up beyond twice the speed of sound.  The miniature sonic boom propels the monster 20 feet through the air towards the other side of the camp and hopefully out of reach of Kaine, buying him time and space to maneuver.

Baddywhick giggles to himself, This is fun.  I could get used to this.

As one twig blight flies across the campsite, the one nearest Xalwin lumbers forward - lumbers... get it? - and takes a wide, sweeping slash at Xalwin with his claws. As the branches seem to connect with Xalwin's robes, a pale blue flash of runes and magical veins spread across his body, preventing the branches from making contact, and then fade into his body.

The twig blight nearest Kaine and Baddywhick raises its twisted arms to the sky and begins to charge towards Baddywhick. His arms crash down on Baddywhick's shoulders with an echoing crack. Baddywhick takes 2 damage.

The twig blight that was just thrown 20 feet from the campsite steadies itself and hurls back towards Baddywhick and slashes him across the back. Baddywhick takes 4 damage.

Baddywhick takes a total of 6 slashing damage.

Samson-Jones stealthily moves toward the twig blight entangled with Kaine and swings her rapier at it, in a rather clumsy fashion.

Oops!

Hmm, let's see.

Realizing that he's just loused up a perfectly good sneak attack, Googleplex Hemo breaks out into jig with lots of kicks, knee lifts, and rapid footwork.  As he does so, he sings aloud,

We are strangers in the dark!
Bash those twigs and make the fire spark!
We are strange bad-assing fools.
Shitty twig-men deserve runny stools!


Baddywhick, in hearing this song, feels overcome with jubilation for the fight.

Baddywhick incurs one Bardic Inspiration die (a d6).

The Twig Blight puts its arms over what would be a mouth if it had one and appears to be chuckling at Xalwin.

After swinging wildly with his unarmed strike, Kaine lets his momentum carry him around.  His right hand reaches down as he spins around, grasping the handle of his great sword lying beside his gear.

He pulls it upward fiercely above his head, the momentum sending the sheath off into the air as his left hand comes to join his right grasping the handle.  With a roaring yell he brings the great sword crashing down in an attempt to split the blight in twain.

Kaine rolled 15 using 1d20+6 with rolls of 9.  attack: great sword.

Kaine slashes through the mass of twisted and dried twigs. They fall to the ground motionless.

1 Twig Blight nearest Baddywhick remains.

Still clutching his whip despite the gash in his side and cheek, Baddywhick watches the second twig...thing...fall to the ground in tatters after Kaine struck it with his sword.  He looks at Kaine in disbelief, "I've seen strange things in the back alleyways of Waterdeep.  But nothing like these twisted, vile, creatures!  Then again, I'm saying this to a creature who prefers to travel at night."

He steps back to the full reach of his whip and brings his arm to bear with as much gusto as he can muster.  Hint: it's not much.

A loud *crack* from Baddywhick's whip echos through the night. The final Twig Blight explodes into small twig fragments. The campfire begins to glow brighter with the addition of new fuel.

All is quiet now save for the crackle of the fire.

It's about 5:00 am.

Combat is over. Back to the Outside the Southern Gate thread.
