To the left Duran and Oloc stand ready – the former to shoot with his bow, the latter to cast his charm spell. Duran quietly pulls the arrow to its full length on the bow and awaits Varros' signal to fire. Oloc is pleasantly surprised that there are only two adversaries, but is convinced that more must be in the area. He tells Duran as much. Now that they are close enough to see the meat roasting over the fire, the young mage almost becomes sick. "Gods, let the girl be ok."
Meanwhile, to the right, Gaven whispers lowly to Varros, "I've never heard of goblins bathing in sunlight, something is very odd here..." Gaven thinks for a moment, "Neither goblin appears wounded, there must be more of them close by. That shank may be human, that does not bode well for the young couple. We may be in for a big battle if we cannot dispatch these two quickly and quietly. I think a lucky arrow shot and the charm spell may allow this, plus possibly gain us some intelligence if we can somehow converse with the fiend. Perhaps we should let Duran kill one and have Oloc try to charm the other so we can question it?"
Varros looks Stan and Gaven in the eye and says, "Let us ready ourselves in case Duran misses or something goes wrong with our plan, we may yet be able to subdue one of these dirty beasts." Varros fixes his gaze back upon the goblins, "At all costs we must not allow either of these creatures to sound a warning, good fortune to you both, companions."
Gaven signals to Oloc to cast his charm spell on one of the goblins. Oloc sees Gaven's gesturing and after a moment he nods in agreement. "Duran, if the rest of you can take care of the one, I can try my charm spell on the other. Then I can speak to it to try and find out what has come of the girl."
Duran indicates to Oloc that he will shoot at the goblin with the spear laying near by. Varros gives the signal and Duran lets loose.
Just as he does, the goblins seem to sense something is wrong. They tense, and start to rise. One of Duran's arrows zips through the air past the first goblin's ear. The second strikes the goblin in the torso, knocking him flat. At the same time Oloc casts a charm spell on the other goblin, whose eyes instantly glaze. His arms drop limp at his sides, then he slowly lowers himself back down to his previous sitting position next to the fire.
Varros, Gaven and Stan quickly charge toward the campfire, but the fight is over before they get there. A quick glance confirms that one goblin is dead and the other charmed. None of you sees any indication of other immediate threats.
There are, however, signs of a path beginning to form between the campfire area and the farmhouse from recent passing back and forth. You also notice that the farm house is actually two conjoined buildings, both ruined, consisting of a house proper at the north end, and what was once probably a barn-like structure at the south end.
Duran: d20 = 2 + 2 (short range) = 4 (miss), 11 + 2 (short range) = 13 (hit); d6 = 2 (goblin killed)
Oloc: Charm Spell, in range, save d20 = 2 (fail, goblin charmed)
