Re: To the Moathouse
Velox nodded and said, "Look, I think Albrecht meant that we could set up some sort of alarm that would warn us when the bandits were on their way back. I really don't like the idea of leaving you two to watch while we explore, especially not after those last two battles we had."

He looked to Albrecht, "Unless I'm wrong and you think we can explore further on our own?"

He paused and then went pale and said, "You don't think... No, surely not... You don't think that the others somehow tripped some alarm that the bandits set, do you? It's about midday, so they could be nearby by now, assuming they left town this morning. If they did, and those bandits are going out to ambush them, wouldn't it be better to ambush the ambushers?"

OOC: I hope that wasn't too meta...

"Elmo not staying to watch, Elmo going with you." Elmo clarifies.

He shrugs on the other question.

Elmo looking outside points out small wisps of smoke "They could be investigating whoever has made a fire."

Re: To the Moathouse
OOC: Is the smoke in the direction of town?

Re: To the Moathouse
You don't think at town, it's to small for a building or something to be on fire, just probably a campfire. It is back the way you came, perhaps near the frog pond.

Re: To the Moathouse
OOC: Perfect, I was trying to figure out if it was between us and town, as in is it the group that was supposed to follow us?

"Let's follow them then, to make sure they don't attack a group of defenseless travelers," Albrecht responded, nodding to himself as he headed towards the exit.

"Absolutely!" Velox said and readied a Javelin as they exited, ready to throw as soon as the bandits were in range.

Re: To the Moathouse
Are you guys doing a double move like the 'bandits' are or do you choose to move more slowly and use stealth?

Re: To the Moathouse
I would like to hang back enough that we can easily catch up to them, but not too close that they can see us. If possible.

Re: To the Moathouse
Sounds like a plan to me. Not very stealthy.

Re: To the Moathouse
Okay you are following the bandits at a suitable gap :)

Re: To the Moathouse
Can we tell how many there are? Or what direction they're going exactly?

Re: To the Moathouse
Yep, they are 7 of them, they are following the path you took from the frogpond up to the drawbridge towards the moathouse.

They are approaching the drawbridge at this time, and no one on the other team has rolled higher than a 4 for their listen checks :(.

They are now clearly setting up to attack someone crossing the drawbridge. You see the crossbowman preparing.

However even though they have surprise on the other party, you have surprise on them, so you can act first. It is probably fortunate that you do.

Re: To the Moathouse
Albrecht looks over at Velox with a smile on his face, drawing his axe and charging the nearest bandit in much the same way he attacked the adder earlier. Of course, this time, he missed. "Watch yourselves!" he shouts to whoever is about to be attacked. Hopefully the others had better luck...

OOC: Unless of course you decide I can use a maneuver as a charge attack, which I've done some research on and can't really seem to find a definitive answer about... lol but it's up to you.

08:35, Today: Albrecht Delmorn rolled 9 using 1d20+6.  Charge + Burning Blade with PA -2.

Re: To the Moathouse
"Incoming!" Velox cries out as he charges in attacking the closest man with a crossbow with his heavy flail.

OOC:
08:46, Today: Velox rolled 14 using 1d10+4.  Damage.
08:46, Today: Velox rolled 16 using 1d20+7.  Charge Flail.

Re: To the Moathouse
Albrecht misses his intended foe, however Velox kills the bandit he chose to attack.

OOC: For now we'll say no maneuvers while moving but I'll try to review that and see if that's appropriate or not :)

Re: To the Moathouse
Elmo charges a bandit with a crossbow, one that Albrecht and Velox did not attack.

Elmo's attack fells another of the crossbowman.

Re: To the Moathouse
Furnok who you had lost sight of for a moment seems to appear out of no where next to the man dressed in chain and shield with a spear (he's the best equipped of the bandits). Furnok's blade though fails to penetrate the armor of the bandit.

Re: To the Moathouse
Everyone needs to roll initiative

Also once they know its you we'll move to their thread for the combat, although with 2 bandits already dead won't be much I don't think.
