Trai follows Mark towards the tunnel."Allow me scaly one." Trai attempts to open the trapdoor towards the tunnel without any stealth whatsoever.

Re: Main Game Thread
Jessica watches the two perhaps excessively courageous fellows charge out of the tunnel for just a few moments before she glances at Paladria and shrugs before she picks up one of the least damage cloaks on her way out as she follows them with just enough distance that anything that explodes in their faces is unlikely to get to her.

Paladria rolled hers eyes in an exaggerated fashion and jerked her thumb at the men. She fell in behind Jessica, content now to let the men be meatshields.

Re: Main Game Thread
Muttering can be heard on the other side of the trapdoor in the second before Trai charges out blindly. "It's been a while, do you think they're ok in there?" The cultist asks his fellow before turning to stare at the large mountain of a man charging out of the tunnel.

Most of the enemy reacts at a fairly normal speed except for the enemy wizard, who is clearly hung over, and groggy with dark rings under his eyes.

Re: Main Game Thread
Xanthas, still in the tunnel, realizes what is happening before the fight even happens. Not in time to stop Trai from charging forward, but quickly enough to be prepared for the battle ahead of time.
Westen, on behalf of Xanthas Quell, rolled 26 using 1d20+6.

"I hope you made peace with your weird ass floating guy!" shouts Mark, and strafes to the right flaking the cultists, taking off one of the fighters right off the bat (CF2).

Re: Main Game Thread
Picking out the Wizard as an easy target right off the bat, and not needing to do any of that time consuming running thing Jessica just puts a flaming hole in the man's chest right away, long before whatever sickness is effecting him can matter.  Almost as an afterthought she takes a few steps back from the trap door, and to the left to be behind some trees.

Re: Main Game Thread
Sundri rolls his eyes as the caveman fails to understand his point just as Mark had, and then rolls them again as yet another battle breaks out. The wizard takes up position behind Trai Dun, and hastily throws a firebolt wide of the cultists.

Move to M22, Firebolt CF1 (or CF2 if CF1 is already dead). Miss, as per normal.

Re: Main Game Thread
Xanthas enters stealth, using Trai as a distraction, and moves up the middle between CF1 and CF2, making a stealth attack on CF3. Unfortunately, the rapier passes harmlessly through the cloth. The unexpected lack of resistance causes Xanthas to trip; meaning next turn he will have to choose between moving or attacking again. (nat 1 roll)

5:38, Today: Westen, on behalf of Xanthas Quell, rolled 7 using 1d20+6.  Attack.
15:32, Today: Westen, on behalf of Xanthas Quell, rolled 15 using 1d20+6. Init

Re: Main Game Thread
As the wizard dies, the fighters and cleric retaliate. CF1, 2, and 3 charge Trai, swinging at him but missing as he casually leans back away from their attacks. CF4, who had been standing by the pond, charges toward the frontlines of the fight. Meanwhile, the cleric moves up, and smashes Xanthas in the head with his mace before he can pull himself to his feet. Xanthas is knocked unconscious by the blow as his skull cracks. (HP = -4)

16:03, Today: Westen, on behalf of Xanthas Quell, rolled 16 using 1d20. Death Save
16:00, Today: Westen, for the NPC Cultist Cleric Damage, rolled 6 using 1d6+2. Critical Hit

As Mark dispatches one of the fighters, the archers fire their bows to support their brethren. The shot aimed at Trai goes wide, but the shot aimed at Mark clips him in the thigh.


16:12, Today: Westen, for the NPC Cultist Archer Damage, rolled 3 using 1d6.

The remaining party members who haven't yet acted file out of the tunnel, missing their attacks. (or just plain hiding)

08:40, Today: Trai Dun rolled 17 using 1d20+6.  Handaxe
08:42, Today: Trai Dun rolled 8 using 1d6+6.  Handaxe Dmg

Trai laughs at the fighters weak assault, "Ha, you bastards think you can beat me.", Trai swings his Scimitar but is block yet again but he spots an Archer that takes aim and misses him, so he takes a hefty swing of his handaxe and throws it right on the neck of the Archer, killing him.

Re: Main Game Thread
Content to let the melee do it's thing Jessica keeps her attention on the far end of the battle, stepping back and to the right this time to get a clear shot on the first archer that comes into view, burning another hole in another cultist's chest with a bolt of fire.

Re: Main Game Thread
Sundri continues to haphazardly throw bolts of fire magic around, hitting nothing of note aside from the terrain.

Firebolt on CA1 (or CA2, if Jessica's attack killed the first (can't really tell what her target was 'cause she didn't say)), miss regardless.

Paladria huffed and went over to Xanthas. She touched him, took out her Cure Wounds card, and cast it on him. He could thank her later.

Cast Cure Wounds L1 on Xanthas.

Re: Main Game Thread
As Jessica's target falls, The final cultist fighter reaches the fight; swinging at Mark. The attack leaves a small gash in his arm.

17:39, Today: Westen, for the NPC Cultist Fighter Damage, rolled 2 using 1d6+1.
17:39, Today: Westen, for the NPC Cultist Fighter Attack, rolled 15 using 1d20+2.


The other two fighters continue to attack Trai, but he deftly avoids their blades.


17:50, Today: Westen, for the NPC Cultist Fighter Attack, rolled 11 using 1d20+2.
17:50, Today: Westen, for the NPC Cultist Fighter Attack, rolled 9 using 1d20+2.


Due to the fighter being off-balance after his attack, Mark is able to slip past him; moving to engage the cleric. The cleric, seeing Mark headed his way, activates shield of faith on himself. The cleric gains +2 AC as Mark misses his first strike.

The remaining cultist Archer takes a potshot at Trai, which miraculously embeds itself in his forehead. Luckily the strength of his skull mitigates the damage this causes enough to prevent it from being lethal.


18:10, Today: Westen, for the NPC Cultist Archer Damage, rolled 1 using 1d6.
18:10, Today: Westen, for the NPC Cultist Archer Damage, rolled 4 using 1d6.
18:10, Today: Westen, for the NPC Cultist Archer Attack, rolled 23 using 1d20+3.


As Sundri accidentally causes a small grass fire, Trai kills the offending archer with a handaxe. So caught up is he in the battle, that he doesn't even realize the archer has in fact struck him.

The blackness of the abyss recedes from Xanthas as he returns to full consciousness; the pain receding due to Paladria's spell. (Xanthas regains 2 HP)

Re: Main Game Thread
Sundri grits his teeth as yet another spell has missed its mark. Aside from starting a small brush fire, the wizard has done nothing worthy of note since even the first battle against the cultists! Channeling his steadily growing anger into his magic, Sundri fires another bolt; finally making contact with something more than grass.

Move to L22, Firebolt on CA1, hit (barely) for 9 Fire damage.

20:16, Today: Sundri Grudge-Bearer rolled 14 using 1d20+6.  Firebolt Attack On Cultist.
