Re: OOC Thread
Well, I'm waiting for Trai and Paladria to return. They did not want to attack the camp directly, so we are stuck waiting for them here. I'm also down to my last healing potion, although I still have 10 HP worth of lay on hands. I wonder if in the meantime we should get into attack formation?

Re: OOC Thread
Is that the plan, I thought the plan was you guys to wait for the next patrol and kill them, and then directly attack the guards.

Re: OOC Thread
Huh, I thought Trai/Paladria were going ahead to take out the rangers, then the rest were going to come in after to attack the camp. 0.0

edit: just reread, and I'm wrong. Jessica said the people who stayed behind were going to wait to ambush the reinforcements and then no one said anything or acknowledged her statement. Still it seems to be what people are doing so I'll roll with it.

Also edit: clearly I should know better than to use the threat of an op gank squad to keep people from lingering because now everyone is lingering to fight the op gank squad

Re: OOC Thread
I thought we were waiting because Trai and Paladria still had enemies to kill. They handled the four scouts that were there, but nothing was ever mentioned of the two that came out of one of the tents.

I think we need to make our plans more clear in the future, 'cause no-one has any idea what we're all doing at the moment.

Re: OOC Thread

And I forgot about those two cultist, should I roll another stealth check.

Re: OOC Thread
They were messengers, they ran off towards the siege. They're not around anymore unless you want to hunt them down.

Re: OOC Thread
Okay have to admit I was totally confused. Wasn't sure it the second group was waiting or attacking, should have asked for clarification and didn't. Just have to deal with the big group now.

In reply to Xanthas Quell (msg # 159):

Nah, I wasn't sure what was going on so I put them far enough away that you could still go around them without consequences. The only reason they ever existed in the first place was to keep people moving along toward the objective. I really wasnt expecting all this.

Re: OOC Thread
I think we need to actually solidify our plan before moving forwards, lest we wind up in this situation in another month... So, here's how things stand:

Paladria and Trai are at the cultist camp.

Jessica, Mark, Sundri, and Xanthas are just outside of the hidden tunnel area.

Two cultist messengers are walking away from the camp. Four-to-six cultists are in the camp itself. A 'OP Gank Squad' (GM's description) is headed for the hidden tunnel area.


At the moment, the plan seems to be for Paladria and Trai to hold their position and wait for us to handle the 'OP Gank Squad'. Not saying I recommend this course of action, but this seems to be what was decided on. Is everyone in agreement with this?

GM: How far away is the cultist camp from the hidden tunnel position?

Re: OOC Thread
I think some of the vague descriptions are sending us in different directions.  I had the impression that we had all left the cave to ambush the camp, and possibly cut off the messengers.  The approaching squad I have no idea what that could be.

Re: OOC Thread
I think this gank squad is just a patrol unit, so you'll be fine. The plan so far is mostly kill the scouts, then kill patrol group, take a short rest, then kill the guards, and possibly enter the camp and kill everyone who's a cultist.

At least that's what I'm getting from the plan.

Editor's Note: Forgot to add 'take a short rest' in the middle, you should always take a short rest when going into a boss fight. No time for a long rest though, we need to be swift in our mission.

In reply to Trai Dun (msg # 163):

I agree. plan was to take out the ones on the outside (patrols, scouts, whatever) and then close the noose on the rest after we take a shorty. Boss fight and all. You guys handle your end quietly and then we meet up to lick our wounds and then go in for one more good fight before we claim victory, do the dance, get the money, etc...

FYI I really like Mark's balls. He don't give no craps that this is a "brutal" rules game. He ain't doin none of that sneaky bullshit, just in there face with swords...NICE!

Re: OOC Thread
The op gank squad is the cultists elites who were going to invade through the tunnel. Just like your prisoner said. The ones he warned you you really dont want to fight :3

Also worth mentioning that the only thing you got hired for was assaulting the main camp. :3

Re: OOC Thread
I am curious then how we can be both aware of the messengers departing the main camp, and still hear the squad arriving a 15 minute walk away?

I think only me and Paladria know the messengers are departing, you guys aren't aware of them.

In reply to Jessica (msg # 167):

Trai is right, I even mentioned earlier that the party was split. Also I never said the squad was 15 minutes away. I said you hear them heading towards you from a long distance away because they're not being stealthy.

Re: OOC Thread
I see, I didn't realize you thought we had stayed in the cave before the split.  The goal was to move everyone to into position with the stealth team clearing the way.

In reply to Jessica (msg # 170):

I didnt think you stayed in the cave, it's just that they made it clear they were going ahead to take out the rangers, while no one else made any indication you guys were leaving the clearing you just fought in, so as far as I know you're still there waiting for the elite squad. Also, judging by everyone's responses so far, I don't think anyone else was any more clear on what's been happening than either of us XD

last chance if anyone wants to not fight the elite squad, and instead go join Trai/Paladria at the main camp

Sundri hasn't declared his intent yet. Also, I just wanted to give everyone this last chance in case anyone wanted to change their mind now that there's more clarity on what's going on.
