Wednesday 4 July 1280, Morning (A Momentary Lull and More Blood)

Grimtooth quickly changes tactics, and jumps backward to assume a defensive position, centered in the doorway. He towers menacingly, darkened by the dim torchlight from the room behind him, axe head streaked with blood, and a smoldering defiance in his eye.

Duran and Varros take advantage of the momentary lull and back away from Grimtooth, sheathing melee weapons and readying bows once more.

As these two reposition, the others get a clear view of the hobgoblin in the doorway.

Gaven is the first to react, and without hesitation casts his spear across the short distance with a mighty heave. The weapon flies true, and before Grimtooth can duck, the spear plunges into the humanoid's throat, and the leader of the goblins falls to the floor.

Suddenly all movement in the room has ceased. The barking of the dogs has picked up once more, muffled still through the door far behind and, strangely, seems to echo slightly from the room ahead as well, with a sort of distant, faint, metallic quality. From the room ahead can also be heard sporadic, low, painful groans.

OOC: Actions?

Combat Round 3

Party wins initiative 5-1

Gaven (throws spear at Grimtooth)
d20 = 12 + 2 (short range) = 14 (hit); d6 = 6 (Grimtooth killed)


  1. Oloc - Mage

    "That sounds like it could be the girl. Let's hurry in and secure her safety before any more harm should befall her." Oloc will head into the room ahead to discover the source of the groaning.

  2. Gaven - cleric

    Seeing his spear strike true, Gaven sighs in relief and and mutterss a benediction to the Light.

    "Let us tend to your wounds," Gaven says to Duran and Varros.

    Upon hearing the murmurs from the other room and seeing Oloc head into the next room, Gaven exclaims,"Hold Oloc. We don't know what dangers await in there. Perhaps we should get Dirtbag and Ollie."

  3. Duran - Fighter

    As he sees Grimtooth fall dead to the floor the pain from Grimtooths blow suddenly floods over him. Looking to his arm he sees the blood flowing from the open wound. With the help of Gaven he takes a scarp of cloth from the dead goblins and binds his wound.

    Turning to the others he says "I agree we need to proceed with caution but we should tend to the girl as quickly as possible."

    OOC: I believe I read in the rules about the possibility of binding a wound after battle. I would like to attempt this now if possible.

    1. OOC: Yep, you guys can indeed bind wounds; I'll update the hp for the next post (I assume that Dienekes will want to have Varros do this too).

  4. Varros - Fighter

    "thank you Gaven and well aimed!"

    Varros will accept Gaven's aid in binding his wound and will call for Ollie and Dirtbag.
