Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Gorn's frustration grew as he saw the javelin fall short of the dragon. "This could prove to be a very long day" he thought to himself as he reached for another javelin.

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Newman felt the frustration of his comrades as he picked up another of the ones he brought over to make it easier to attack.  Or so that was the theory he had.  He discovered a possible flaw in this strategy when he stumbled on the hastily tossed pile of javelins he had put on the ground next to him while trying to make his throw.

"Damn... me!"  The golem like armored being growled pounding a fist on the edge of the wall as he watched his javelin sail rather ineffectively towards the ground far short of his target.

Move Action:  Staying put.

Action:  Javelin attack.

19:10, Today: Newman rolled 12 using 2d20+5, dropping the lowest dice only.  Reckless attack

Yeah I doubt it's AC is 12 so I'm gonna assume it didn't hit.

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Confident she couldn't do any worse than the others, Careena lifted another javelin, took at solid stance, and threw the javelin at the dragon. Her shoulders sank just like the javelin as it fell short of the dragon and stuck in the ground below.

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
The large beast glowers across the wall and brings himself closer than he'd yet to be in the fight. Hovering just short of thirty feet above the wall, directly over Gorn and Careena.

The dragon has risen up into the air higher, and closed the distance. He's still only 25ft. away, just straight up now. I failed to recharge the breath weapon again, so it's back to you guys like a slow tennis game, lol.

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Lyryian reloaded the crossbow, a look of frustration and determination on her face. She heard the movement of the dragon and again came over the wall side, and took aim.

"Please help us..." she muttered as she fired.


 ..and missed

"Oh, come on!!" she yelled, ducking back to reload. "Should have listened to my mother and studied magic, but no - I had to sneak out. pft "

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Banelin moves closer to the target, but it seems not to aid his throw as he hurls a Javelin towards the dragon only to watch it ineffectually glance off the hard scaled.

"MORADIN'S BEARD WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO?!" came a frustrated bellow from the dwarven paladin as he grabs another javelin from the rac, preparing for his next attempt.


Spoiler text: (Highlight or hover over the text to view)
He rolled a 14, which misses the dragon! Gorn, Newman, Careena, feel free to carry on.

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Gorn could feel the frustration and anger building up inside of him. "Why do these people not have more advanced weapons by now?" he thought to himself as he took another javelin and heaved it towards the dragon. When it struck the dragon and stuck he stood there staring in shock. "Did you see that? Did you see that?" as he looked around at the others. In his excitement, he quickly grabbed another javelin and tried to remember exactly what it was he had just done.

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
"WHOO! I saw it!"  Newman cheered when Gorn got a good hit.  He felt a bit of the frustration slip allowing him to better concentrate as he let fly with his next javelin.  Still the warforged tried his best putting all his effort into the attack as he had been trained by his clansmen...  Even if his attack did not hit, the fact Gorn did at least gave him hope to keep trying!

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Shaking her head as she watched Gorn act like a child over striking the dragon, she couldn't help but chuckle. She had begun to feel like throwing this sticks at the dragon was a hopeless endeavor. Grabbing another she took her chance and threw another javelin towards the dragon, only to see it drop harmlessly to the ground.

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
When Gorn's javelin struck gold, and buried itself in the throat of the dragon, the beast rolled away. This contributed to javelins from Newman and Careena to fly just over the body of the beast. With a screech, it hovered above the walls and glared over the heroes, yanking the javelin from it's throat and dropping it onto the ground at Gorn's feet.

"I did not sign up for this, Langdedrosa is on his own." With a swift beat of his wings, causing a wind felt across the battlefield, the dragon rose quickly and soared away.

WOO! That was one of the criteria to end the fight! Cause 24 damage, or score a critical hit!

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Governor Nighthill appeared at the top of the steps to the outer wall, "He's gone, and we barely lost any soldiers...you...four are amazing." He moves to Gorn and offers a cheesecloth wrapped around four small vials. "This is the last of our healing potions, but with a visit expected from the clergy to aid Maester Flaconmoon with the temple we can purchase some more. Please take these with our eternal thanks."

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Lyryian looked on as the beast flew away, the already tired rogue breathing a sigh of relief. She walked over to the others as tbe mayor offers the healing potion, placing a hand on Gorn.

"Nice shot...." she places the crossbow down and looks at the mayor with a smile. "Our thanks....but what I need is a drink, warm meal and place to sit, even if its just for a bit"

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Gorn felt a sense of relief as the dragon turned and flew away. "Langdedrosa?" who the heck is that as he turned when Lyryian's hand on his shoulder. "Food, drink, and sleep" as he looked at the others, "definitely sounds like the perfect way to put the last couple of days behind us." With that he looked at the javelin in his hand and dropped it to the ground, chuckling as the noise it made hitting stone rang out. "We need to find out who and where this Langdedrosa is. Sounds like he may be the one heading up this problem." Taking the potions from the mayor, he hands them to Lyryian, "Here, you'd probably be best to hold on to these, knowing me they'd get broke."

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Newman's face shifted to a confused stare as the dragon spoke and then flew off.  He stood there motionless a moment before he all but shouted in surprised tone.  "They can talk?!?!  Nobody told me they can talk!"

He heard a name be mentioned again by Gorn.  The name rang a bell with the normally ignorant giant warforged.  Newman however took a moment and scooped up an extra javelin to replace the one he had lost earlier today and then trotted off after the ranger.  His size and weight making his pounding footfalls not at all subtle as he followed the human.  He was excited by their apparent victory in driving off the dragon and made no effort to do anything quietly.

"Langa...  Landa...  uh...  the drosa guy?  I heard the ones we captured mention him as their boss in charge of all this...  invasion or whatever?"  Newman gestured to the town as a whole with a broad sweep of his arms.  "I think this is all that guy's fault.
 We should kill him."
  Newman nodded emphatically with his own statement.

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Governor Nighthill nodded furiously as the party discussed among themselves. He offered a bright smile and spread his arms as if attempting to hug the entire party. "Of course! Of course! Please join me downstairs. It is a keep designed to protect us from just such an occasion, so there's not much room for comfort, but we will do our best!"

He leads the group down into the courtyard and across to a small set of stables. Inside there is a fresh stall with clean hay and a pleasant absence of droppings and horse piss.

"Again, I am horribly sorry, but this is probably the best I can do. It's comfortable, and you will be undisturbed if that's your wish."

Gorn looked the offered accommodations and shrugged, "What about food? It's been a while since we had anything other than trail rations." glancing at the mayor and then the rest of the group as he began to shrug off his equipment and find a comfortable place against a wall.

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Governor Nighthill seems abashed and wrung his hands gently, "Rations is all we stock the keep with as well. They do not go bad, and can be stored for ages. I...sincerely apologize again. I would be happy to inquire among the citizens and see if anyone brought some bread or perhaps dried meats along with them when they fled?"

Lyryian  looks at Gorn and shakes her head slightly, then to the Mayor. "Rations will be fine thank you....let the people have their bread and meat - they have suffered, and even though things look better, it will still be time."

The half elf sits on the floor, leaning against the wall and closes her eyes. "Give me a an hour, and I'll be ready to go kick some ass again" her tone though, was full of exaustion and bravado.

She opened an eye to gorn. "What say you to a hunt old man....when our bellies are full the two of us take point and find these bastards."

Grabbing some rations from her backpack, she tossed one at Gorn. "Here, eat, be merry, rest. Be thankful you're not roast." then took hers and sat down on the hay and started eating. "We need to end this, whatever it is." as she took a bite and began to chew. With food in her mouth, "These poor folks are ill-equipped to deal with a threat like this." Careena looked around at their group, "The four of us will need some reinforcement."

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
"Excuse me..." a quite voice came from the door to the stables behind Governor Nighthill causing him to jump, startled.

He turned and his eyes seemed to widen, "Miri, my dear, what can I do for you? Does Maester Falconmoon need me for anything."

The young girl shook her head quietly, "No sir, Governor Nighthill, I came to offer my assistance to these heroes. I think...with my natural talents, and what Maester Falconmoon has taught me about the wonders of Chauntea I can assist them greatly in their goal of ending the threat to Greenest."

Nighthill rubbed his chin, shaking his head lightly, "Have...you spoken to Maester Falconmoon about this? Maybe I should go speak to him first." Without confirmation or challenge from the young girl, Governor Nighthill made his way out of the stables and off to look for the temple leader.

The young girl came closer ot the four heroes, entering the torch light. She was exceptionally pale for someone that lived in a farming community, and her eyes were without pupils. Her light blonde hair circled her head in a bob cut, with two long curls framing her face hanging down to her collarbone. She pulled her traveler's clothes around her shoulders tightly, and knelt beside the group of heroes, joining them.

"My name is Miri Greydragon, I have been an acolyte in the local Temple of Chauntea under Maester Falconmoon. I also have a talent with the arcane. I have since I was a child. I..." She looked around somewhat conspiratorially, "I was born an aasimar under an angel of Chauntea, and I feel like the visions I have received from her lately mean I need to join you."

Alright Sam, thanks for giving me a little creative license with Miri. Feel free to run with her. Everyone else, Miri Greydragon is a Divine Soul Protector Aasimar Sorcerer. I think she'll be able to offer you both the healing support you lost with Banelin, and offer a little more arcane blasty support for you too.

Lyryian opened an eye as the woman spoke, then closed it again. "Miri....first thing. Stop being so formal - we don't stand on formality here....well, i don't anyway" The half elf smiled as she stretched out, then continued to sit with eyes closed.

"So you want to follow us into the belly of the beast, chase someone who has a dragon as an ally?" She opened her eyes with a smile. "My kind of crazy"

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Looking up from his meal, he listened to Miri, shrugged, nodded, and went back to his meal. Staring at his food he did smile at Lyryian's words then looked over at Careena. "If this one is anywhere near as deadly as that one, this could be an interesting display of power." he thought to himself as he looked back and forth between the two. "Not your typical band of warriors" as he glanced around the group. "but all have proven to be lethal in their own ways."

Looking at Lyryian, "I agree, the two of us can scout out this Langawhatever's hideout then we get back with the rest and come up with a plan of attack." as he took a drink of water from his waterskin. "But first, rest, I need some rest." then looking over at Miri, "May the Gods reward your bravery."

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Newman regarded the young woman who approached them and his facial features reconfigured to a wide grin as he listened to her introduce herself.  Ther dull blue glow of his eyes beneath the armored brow seemed fixed on her until she was done talking.  Only then did he nod.  "It is nice to meet you Miri.  They call me Newman."  The warforged announced with a bang of his fist on his chest.  The stone and metal making up the bulk of his upper torso gave a dull banging noise in response.

His brows sunk a bit, just about meeting in the middle of his forehead now as he expressed the confusion working its way through his mind for a moment.  His head swiveled looking to his comrades and then back to Miri before he spoke again.  "I don't even know what formality is really."

Lyryian reached into her pack, retrieving some rations and a skin of water and began eating some dried jerry. She looked at Gorn with a smile.

"May the gods reward your bravery? What in the nine hells are you, a paladin with a stick up his ass sending someone to their death....cheery much"

She looked at the woman with a smile. "Ignore the optimist...so far I've fought a dragon, faced off a cult  released hostages and brought some bandits to justice despite wanting to stab them in the eye for skewering me with a javelin."

Her face went dark as she muttered. "bastards."

She shook her head, smiling. "Had a ball despite mister sunshine there. So if your gonna tag along, take a seat, tell us what you can do and rest while you can...because where we are going next, your gonna need it!"

Re: Tyranny of Dragons: Episode 1: Greenest in Flames
Careena sat enjoying her rations and listening to the banter amongst the group. She remained silent as she thought about what lay ahead. Death? Reward? Survival, whatever that might be?

As she finished her meal she adjusted her pack and the pile of hay and took a comfortable position. Wrapping her robes about her, in short time she was asleep.
