I don't see any reason not to finish the events here before moving on to the next location.

In reply to Li Lei (msg # 188):

They are scattered all over the center of the mura, 20-30 feet separates each other. The leader is about 120 feet passing the south bridge.

Re: Setup Thread
I think we have a bit of a time discrepancy going on.  Unless there is something I am missing we should be getting into a fight long before the second set of riders can free any of the first set, let alone arm them or get horses.

No problem Yessera, if you want to fight you can attempt it. I have no problem in retcon things and we can assume your attack started before the myusho got out the warehouse.

Re: Setup Thread
Hey guys and gals.

Wow what a turn around! Exciting!

About my post, sorry if it goes against your original plans. Understand that Yessera is attempting to attack and start a guerilla battle. There isn't time to coordinate (I mean real game time) so Shido is going to act in the most optimal and in-character manner.

Ok I am still not out of the woods as far as my work is concerned. But I am back to checking in and posting.

Re: Setup Thread

@Shido Mitsunari: I would like to know what Yessera is going to attempt and then I will inform the outcome of your actions.

Re: Setup Thread
Well hopefully someone else has some kind of ranged attack option to get their attention, otherwise we won't have much chance of drawing them across the bridge before they complete their task.

Re: Setup Thread
yeah, that's why I wondered if one was close enough for me to run up to and attack because I don't have ranged

Re: Setup Thread
Don't wanna metagame too much here, coz the characters didn't have time to talk this through but had to react with split-second decisions.

Don't think we need to attack the raiders to draw their attention or pursuit. We killed 4 of their men already remember? High chance they will wanna catch us for retribution and as an example of their authority.

Imho, we just need to get on horses and "flee" north. That's it.

Re: Setup Thread
I don't think we want anyone getting stuck in melee with them, if we don't have any ranged combat ability then we don't have much choice, but they don't know who or what happened to the first group, no reason to assume they will deviate from their planned destruction just to hunt down a few fleeing people.

@Yessera: Opinions differ. But yup no biggie. :)

@Li Lei: There's a horse for you if you want to take it.

Re: Setup Thread
Just checking DM: I had thought we captured 8 horses. By driving away 4, Shido left 4 for Yessera, Patricus, Yamano, and himself. Li Lei, Shido had assumed, would be able to fly away in bird form.

Anyways, as I suspected, there is a traitor in our midst. Ah well...time to cut our losses and walk away.

I will post in awhile.

Re: Setup Thread
In reply to Shido Mitsunari (msg # 200):

Ohh now I understand, four were driven away and four remained, the roll was made for the horses to be driven away, anyways, DC 7 would have been the set difficulty, how difficult could be to make horse to run once they are free of any restrain?

Well, I figured the horses, instead of behaving as per what Shido intended, could:
1. not allow him to lead them out quietly.
2. run off wildly in any direction other than across the bridge that Shido is trying to drive them towards.
3. kick his nuts and then run off.

Or several other fun-filled possibilities. :D

Re: Setup Thread
Just to be clear, we are waiting on Yessera, Li Lei and Yamano. Is that right DM?

Guys can we just write a post of our plan, actions, intentions, etc?

So that DM has something he can work with.

I think we just assume they all took a horse and all the party flee towards the forest.

Putting my house on the market tomorrow.  Posting for me may slow a bit.  When I do post it may be from my phone so the quality may drop, since I hate phone posting.

Re: Setup Thread
Considering how much time the raiders took to arrive after their compatriots failed to return, the assembly area is most likely only a 2-3 hour horse ride away from the mura. This works out roughly be about 40-60 km away.

Imho, the optimal way to find out the location of the Temple, is actually to scout from the air while keeping the party hidden from sight in the forest. So Li Lei in bird form, plus Shido's owl familiar, can fly back to Tosa mura and cautiously watch the leader. Follow him back to the Temple.

However...Shido wouldn't know any of this commando ranger bullshit. Which honestly is probably gonna be boring for everyone else who is watching Li Lei and Shido's familiar do their stuff.

So...let's all go to the nearest village in disguise and see what we can find. :D

No reason we can't do both, just have the familiar fly back and forth every hour or so.

I don't mind scouting the group in bird form while you guys go in disguise to the next village if that would help?

I cannot see unified criteria regarding what the group is going to do, I need you to make a decision about the course of actions so I can set the events.
