Wednesday 4 July 1280, Morning (Borrg)

"Should we not let the gob up?" asks Oloc quickly. "One less to take care of below."

"I think Oloc has a good idea," replies Duran. "I'll have an arrow waiting with his name on it."

"I guess three steaks will have to do." Gaven readies his shield and club. "Should we try to quickly grab and gag him as he comes out so that he can't raise an alarm or escape if you miss your shot?"

"Duran and myself will be able to take him out," says Varros.

"Let the Light guide your shots," replies the cleric.

Oloc affects his voice and says in the goblin tongue: "Hold on you fleabag," He quickly motions for the group to hide around the corner and for Stan to remove the rocks from the trap door.

At Oloc's gruff insult, the goblin below goes into a rage, and Stan only manages to remove the first few rocks when with a ferocious thrust, the goblin heaves the trap door open, so violently that Stan gets knocked off his feet, and the remaining rock or two still holding it down go flying.

This is just as well, since Duran and Varros now have a clear shot at the goblin as he springs up through the trap door. Before the humanoid has the chance to take in what he sees, the two fighters unleash their arrows simultaneously and both hit the goblin square in the chest, killing him instantly.

Gaven, who was ready to spring forward in case the archers missed, still does so, and as he reaches the trap door, he sees that this goblin was alone. No sound seems to come up from below, except a furious barking, muffled, as if coming from behind a closed door.

The rest of you quickly gather round the body of the slain goblin, and notice that he has a bandage around his head, stained with the same greenish-black blood you noted on Bill Barley's dagger. The goblin carries a stout club, and you find 6 gold coins in his pockets.

Off to the side, Dirtbag sits on the ground, unmoving, still trance-like – though you could swear that a single tear is rolling down his cheek.

  1. Totally OOC:I want to go enter the archery contest in Duran's village! Lol. Jk. I need too think over the next move. Any suggestions?

    1. After that bad luck with the very first ambush of the sentries, you guys have been rocking the dice. Granted, with your ambush tactics, you would certainly have prevailed anyway -- but the archery has been devastating.
      (I mean Stan hasn't even made a single attack yet).

    "I will not doubt your aim again, Duran and Varros. I may just have you teach teach me how to properly use the bow," Gaven laughs.

    "I suppose now is as good a time as any to descend."

    Gaven takes hold of his shield and a spear, with the steaks wrapped in goblin's clothing in a sack at his belt.

    OOC: Same marching order as before (3x3)?

  3. Duran - Fighter

    Duran claps Varros on the back say "Well done my friend." Turning to Graven, Duran chuckles and says "yes my friend the bow can be a powerful weapon in the right hands. Although I am sure you can teach me a thing or two about fighting when it is up close and personal."

    Notching another arrow Duran joins the other in preparation to descending the stairs.

    OOC: The 3x3 order works for me. Duran can stay on the stairs and shoot over the heads of the others if need be.

    "What of our friend, 'dirtbag'," Oloc asks. "Should we bring him with or have him remain up here? I am a bit worried that his seeing so many of his comrades fall, may be weakening my charm."

    ooc: I could have him go sit under a tree until I return. What do you all think?

    "We need Dirtbag to show us how to disable the alarm."

  7. Any other votes on what to do with Dirtbag?

  8. OOC: we will probably need him for the alarm so if we can bring along under his spell we should.
