Chapter 2: The Perfect Storm
Sora watches as the guards seem to lose focus and get sloppy, and she smiles even as the disguised gnome returns. "Well done" She whispers.

"Seems the kobolds are less vigilant than we thought." she muttered. "...if there was a time to free them, it should be soon."

Catrina looks toward the encampment,"If it is so, then we should proceed with surprising vigor. Our opponents laziness shall be their undoing." she says as she watched the gnome,"Which foe should we strike first?"

Amorette smirks, letting her disguise melt away. “Of course!”, she acknowledges Sora’s whisper.

“They are rather loafish for followers of this crazy Queen of theirs, aren’t they? The prisoners will be able to cut their bonds by dawn- there is even one among them who I think will be especially helpful in a fight. However, they need some time. I would say let’s strike the patrols first, but that risks them raising the alarm before we can strike the main force. What say you lot? Think we can strike the camp itself quickly enough, at dawn, before they can muster their forces?”

Sora chewed her lip thinking. "if we can take the patrol that comes past us quickly and quietly, maybe the other guards wont notice....if we wait say an hour before dawn to do that. Then we can take the guards just before dawn where they may be free."

"Attacking them so they raise the alarm, in one place, is good, while the prisoners escape in another." Bross replies.

Amorette nods. "If we can time it right and get as many of them in one strike, that might just do it. But we should hit hard first, to maintain the element of surprise. Though they're lazy things, there are a lot of them."

She stares back towards the prisoners. "Maybe some of the prisoners could strike from behind as they escape. One amongst them is a bard of quite great renown. He likely has a trick or two up his sleeves that could aid us as well as his fellows."

"In terms of our strategy, let's start with the patrol, swift and quiet. Then see if we can hit the camp with some fire power." She smirks as her eyes slide to Taria.

Sora nodded. If we can take the guards out with little noise, then the rest should be in one fell swoup. I suggest the fighters focus on the drakes - if their tied up, us with ranged attacks focus on the archers before they can get their wits together"

Bross attacks with advantage and hits the Drake at least once. The drake hisses loudly. The kobalds are caught off guard. What is the rest of the party doing? If you attack you will have advatage during the surprise round.


OOC: PLease state your actions and roll initiative for next round.

Chapter 2: The Perfect Storm
As Bross started firing, Catrina and Manfred charged toward one of the Drakes. As she made it toward them, she then jumps them from her horse to deliver a drop kick, which was so strong that she might have crack it's skull. She then opts to finish it with a palm strike attack that she's been dying to attempt. She struck at the overgrown lizard on its snout, however the effects were less than what she wanted as the drake seemed unfazed by such an attack,"Hmm, looks like I need to keep on training." she says as she hops back toward her steed.

Initiative: 07:31, Today: Catrina GreySky rolled 20 using 1d20+1.  Initiative.

07:31, Today: Catrina GreySky rolled 26 using 1d20+6.  Unarmed Strike.

Even as the otehrs spring into action, Sora is already chanting, her eyes as black as coal as her amulet shimmers, a globe of pink/purple magic flies and hits the kobold in the chest.




<OOC: Sora rolled 5 using 1d20+2.  iniative.

Action - Attack using Eldrich Blast

Sora rolled 18 using 1d20+5.  attack - Eldrich Blast.

Chapter 2: The Perfect Storm
As his companions commenced attacking one of the patrols, Alleycat sighted on one of the Kobolds who had not been wounded yet (chosing one who looked like he might be an archer), and fired a bolt from his crossbow.


OOC:
Action: Ranged Attack v. Kobold.
17:01, Today: Alleycat rolled 12 using 2d20+5, dropping the lowest dice only with rolls of 4,7.  Ranged Attack v. Kobold (w/Advantage).
17:03, Today: Alleycat rolled 1 using 1d8.  Damage (Light Crossbow).
17:03, Today: Alleycat rolled 1 using 1d6.  Sneak Attack Damage.

Bonus Action: Cunning Action: Hide. Alleycat will attempt to Hide from the Kobolds in order to gain Advantage on his Attack next Round.
17:17, Today: Alleycat rolled 9 using 1d20+7 with rolls of 2.  Hide (Stealth Check).

17:18, Today: Alleycat rolled 13 using 1d20+3 with rolls of 10.  Initiative.

Comments: Sheesh. The Dice Roller didn't do me any favors this Round. I'm not sure whether or not a 12 on the Attack Roll will hit. If it does, Ac inflicts 5 points of Damage (the absolute minimum).  I forgot to add his + 3 Dex modifier to the Damage roll for the crossbow.

Amorette turns her gaze to the other, her eyebrow cocked. She plucks tauntingly at her lute, and in a sing-song voice says,

"Poor little lazy lizards,
marching to and fro.
They have no brains to help them plan
and no brawn when blood starts to flow"



17:03, Today: Amorette Springspell rolled 4 using 1d4. (Casting vicious mockery)

Chapter 2: The Perfect Storm
Alleycat had slipped back into some bushes, and it seemed to him that the surviving Kobolds had not spotted him.

He quickly reloaded his crossbow, and aimed it at the Kobold that looked to be the healthiest of the two. His bolt struck true, slamming into the little lizard's midsection.

After taking his shot, the rogue slipped back into the bushes and began reloading his crossbow again.


OOC:

17:07, Today: Alleycat rolled 6 using 1d20+3.  Initiative v. Kobolds.

17:07, Today: Alleycat rolled 16 using 1d20+3 with rolls of 13.  Initiative (Advantage Roll).

Action: Alleycat will target one of the Kobolds with his crossbow. 17:11, Today: Alleycat rolled 24 using 2d20+5, dropping the lowest dice only with rolls of 19,19

17:13, Today: Alleycat rolled 6,2 using d8+3,d6 with rolls of 3,2.  Damage (Crossbow Bolt, Sneak Attack).

Total Damage Dealt: 8.

Bonus Action: Cunning Action; Ac will attempt to Hide again, just in case the fighting continues into the next Round.

17:36, Today: Alleycat rolled 11 using 1d20+7 with rolls of 4.  Cunning Action: Hide (Stealth Check).

Notes: The DM confirmed that Ac was successful in his efforts to Hide last round (using his Cunning Action). This gave him Advantage on his Attack this Round (which also allowed Sneak Attack damage).

The DM also mentioned that Ac needed to beat the Initiative of the Kobold that he attacked in order to prevent its whistling (presumably to attract the attention of the second patrol), so I burned an Inspiration Point to give Ac the Advantage on his Initiative Roll.

Ned springs from the bushes and thrusts at the remaining kobald with his spear. The kobald stumbles clear of the first strike but gets clobbered by the swinging haft as the swineherd spins the haft over his head and brains the staggering kobald with a masterful swing.

The outer patrol has been eliminated. The camp seems to be unaware of what happened.

Amorette silently dusts off her hands and glances at the others. "Nicely done. Now, to finally free those prisoners. If we can hit hard with some magic initially, hopefully we can take out a few lizards before we even have to cross blades."

She smirks at Catrina."I know some of us might enjoy a challenge, but I'm sure the half-dragon and a few drakes will make for an interesting enough fight. Let's not waste your time with the small fry."

"Heh, of course, I'm only saving my strength for my inevitable rematch on that half-dragon jerk." Cat says with an overconfident grin. She rides to Sora's side and will wait to see this magic attack.

"Let's not get in over our heads by tangling with that Half-Dragon again, unless we have no choice," Alleycat said.

"Our job is to free the prisoners and recover as much of their goods as we can, not pick a fight with half the Kobold strike-force."

Sora, her eyes still black, grimaced. "People focus - time is on our side. Lets finish this. Spellcasters and ranged focus on teh lizards, those who fight in front, go in fast and hard."

She looked at Catarina. "Redeem yourself in their eyes as well as ours - use your power and strength to save them."

She looked at the nearest drake, and still concentrating on her spell, moved her curse against it.

Taria quietly nods. She has held back so far to keep things quiet. To much power released could be a beacon of light, sound, and arcane power to those she'd rather keep in the dark.
