Thursday 12 July 1280, Afternoon (Creepers)

Swede keeps a close eye on Oloc and the hirelings, with a firm grip on his crossbow. Oloc continues to play it cool and manages to keep the hirelings calm. The mercenaries, while far from comfortable, look like they're handling the situation alright, but Ollie and Bill exchange worried glances, and Oloc can practically see the lumps they have in their throats.

Off to the flank, deep in the brush, Duran continues to hide, watching and observing, waiting for the right time to reveal himself or take action. For the moment, none of the party seems to be in deadly danger – apart from simply being held prisoner by Swede, which mostly looks unpleasant, but not yet life-threatening.

Varros and Gaven follow Duran's lead as Duran has a better view of things than they.

Meanwhile, the remaining three hobgoblin bounty hunters – Axel, Lars and Anders – begin to creep forward up the trail to the east, with Axel gesturing to the other two to indicate from which direction the noise came. After a moment, Varros and Gaven realize that Axel is leading his two companions directly toward their position.

As the hobgoblins come to within about twenty feet or so of Varros' and Gaven's position, Axel gives a sign to Lars and Anders to quietly creep around the flanks. It's all too evident that the noise Axel picked up must have come from the fighter's and cleric's position, and that the two party members will be surrounded in a matter of seconds.

OOC: Actions

Visibility is same as before.

Sorry this post took me a little longer than normal to get out -- I'm buried under a stack of papers to grade since Wednesday. I'll be under that pile of paper most of the weekend as well, but I'll be handing them back on Monday, so my pace should return to normal.


  1. Oloc - Mage

    Oloc looks at Swede. "Tell your men to be cautious. My companions are up there, staking out the cave. If they are surprised by your men, things may get ugly unnecessarily."

    ooc: Oloc hopes to prevent things from going south!

  2. OOC: Hi all. To those who can access this, I'm going to hold off a bit more on putting up the next post. Dan managed to get an email to me from a relative's house to let me know his power is still out in the aftermath of Sandy. Haven't heard from Dienekes or Professor P in a while, so I assume they may have similar difficulties.

  3. Duran - Fighter

    Duran will remain hidden bow at the ready waiting to react depending on what happens to his comrades.

    OOC: Finally got the power back today, not that I can complain compared to alot of people. Hope everyone else is ok from the storm

  4. Varros - Fighter

    OOC: sorry guys. I thought I posted from my phone.

    Varroa will stand his ground and lower his bow slightly to appear less threatening and say steadily to all in earshot, "Everyone hold, we have a misunderstanding."

  5. Gaven - cleric

    Gaven sneers at Varros's words, muttering almost inaudibly, "Filthy hobgoblins."

    Gaven grounds the butt of his spear into the ground, but does not loosen his grip on either spear or shield.

    1. OOC: sorry for the lack of posting. Weathered the storm fine, but have been slammed at work.

    2. OOC: have been slammed at work

      No problem -- I completely understand that!
