Re: The Canyon
As they had been ordered to the three woman-at-arms surrounded the goblins and struck at them. Sword, spear and hammer were cut, thrust and swung. Arietta as surly in battle as she was in all her pursuits deftly stabbed a goblin wounding it. Ermangard's spear was on target but failed to pierce the goblins hide armour. Inexperience showed with Nerida's wild swinging of her hammer which missed it's target entirely.

OOC Bertilak, Anfinn and Teodore all still up to act.

Re: The Canyon
Teodore attacks the goblin with the nose ring, but it's an iffy swing at best.

13:44, Today: Teodore rolled 2 using 1d8+1.  Goblin damage?

13:43, Today: Teodore rolled 12 using 1d20+1.  Attack Goblin.

Re: The Canyon
Bertilak finds himself a bit closer to the goblins than he would prefer, but I decides it is not the time to use his magic. He pulls his silver dagger from its scabbard and prepares to defend himself.

OOC: I don't think there's an official "defend yourself" rule in BX, but if there is, I'll use it! :D

Re: The Canyon
OOC Ok that's the surprise round over (Anfinn you can catch and take your actions whenever you next post) so we now need declaration - please declare what's in your hands, if you are going to disengage and if you are planning to casting any spells this round.

Fiene has his lantern and pole at the base of the stairs. Keeping himself as far from the violence as he can.

Re: The Canyon
OOC Ok we'll take that as everyone ready. Roll for Initiative. 3 or higher and you can act. 2 then reroll. A 1 then the goblins get to go first.

14:52, Today: Ben rolled 6 using 1d6.  init.

Re: The Canyon
The cornered goblins were assaulted again. This time both Teodore and Arietta cutting down their foes. The remaining three goblins gave no heed as the odds were set against them but fought on. Their spears jabbed harmlessly against Teodore, Nerida and Ermangard but alas a goblin spear made its way through Arietta's coat of mail and the contrary warrior collapsed to the floor.

OOC Okay will try things a little differently. No declaration. Let's go straight to Initiative and see how it effects the game. Goblins rolled a 2. So same as before you win Initiative you can post your actions.

Re: The Canyon
As before, Ben found that he had run out of daggers.

He calls out to Fienne, "Order your new friend to attack his old friends!"

13:30, Today: Ben rolled 11,2 using d20,d4.  3rd toss.
13:29, Today: Ben rolled 3 using 1d6.  init.

Re: The Canyon
Teodore strikes out at another goblin. However, it wasn't his best effort.

Re: The Canyon
Both of Teodore's and Ben's attacks failed to hit their targets. The remaining hirelings Ermengard and Nerida fought well killing two more goblins. The last goblin rather than be cowed by this went into frenzy, gnashing it's teeth and striking at Ermengard but missing.

OOC It's Initiative again. The last goblin rolled a 1.

Re: The Canyon
Bertilak lets out a moan at seeing Arietta fall to the ground, bleeding. He hopes she's alright, but until the goblins are dead, he's staying away.

Re: The Canyon
The adventurers get the jump on the last of the goblin ambushers in this room.

Ben looks about for and then picks up one of his thrown daggers.

Re: The Canyon
The last goblin now surrounded faced off against Ermangard and Nerida but neither of the warrior women were able to hit the goblin.

Amongst the goblin corpses Ben was able to retrieve a dagger. The other adventurers kept away from the danger.

OOC All misses from the hirelings. Relying on Theodore to finish this off or the goblin will get to attack again.

Re: The Canyon
With the goblin cornered Valerian was able to drag the woman at arms Arietta out of the room safely. The woman was still breathing but weakly and had lost a lot of blood. Meanwhile Teodore advanced on the last goblin and with a powerful sword thrust skewed the creature on his blade, the goblin died with a whimper and the battled ended.

The smell of blood and carnage joined the rank smell of the goblin camp and pools of fresh blood gathered on the stone floor.
