Friday 6 July 1280, Well After Midnight (Investigating the Noise)

Varros motions to Duran, puts his finger to his lips and then motions for him to move forward. Varros does the same and readies his bow covering the area of the sounds.

Duran nods to Varros and slowly stalks forward trying to utilize any cover. With his bow at the ready Duran will meet any threat with deadly force.

Gaven continues to guard the rear and keep an eye on the flanks, while Varros and Duran scout ahead.

Oloc begins to call forth the words for his spell, waiting at the ready.

Stan advances slightly forward and to the right of Oloc, in a position to guard the unarmored mage in case of trouble.

As Varros and Duran sneak forward, they encounter at first only an obstinate, suspicious silence. Creeping around the bend in the trail, however, they spot two goblins, evidently trying to hide themselves in the shadows of the underbrush. Unfortunately (for the goblins), a cloud shifts clear of the moon, momentarily illuminating the position of the goblin pair as bright as day. 

Varros fires immediately on the goblins. In the blink of an eye, he looses two arrows. Each strikes home perfectly – one in the throat, the other in the chest. Before they can  react, the goblins gasp, twitch and then lie still.

As you hold your breath listening, you don't hear any other movement or activity nearby. If there are additional enemies in the area, there is no sign of them.


OOC: Actions?

Time Update: The time is now roughly 1:20 a.m.

Combat Details

Party cannot be surprised (heard goblins)
Party d6 = 1 (goblins surprised)

Surprise Round (Varros only: "Varros will fire immediately on Goblins" + "Duran will only fire if him or one of his group is spotted").

d20 = 20! +2 (short range) = 22; d6 = 5 (Goblin #1 killed)
d20 = 14 +2 (short range) = 16; d6 = 6  (Goblin#2 killed)


  1. Varros - Fighter

    "Cover me Duran," whispers Varros. Varros moves quietly forward and will search the bodies for any valuables. Varros will also try to determine if the goblins were injured and why they were behind the rest.

    OOC: Varros will also call to Karnak and feed him, and ask him to scout ahead.

  2. Duran - Fighter

    Duran motions to Varros that he has his back. As Varros moves forward Duran follows quietly with his bow at the ready.

    OOC: Duran will try and keep close enough to Varros to provide support but make sure he is not in the line of fire. If any Goblin threats appear he will fire.

  3. Gaven - cleric

    Gaven will continue to guard the rear and flanks.

    OOC: Does Gaven, Oloc, Stan, Ollie know what just happened?

    1. OOC: I'd say you could hear Varros' shots, and the silence afterward, so you'd have a fair idea (you might not know Varros' target was a pair of goblins, specifically, but you know he shot at something, and almost certainly killed it).
