We are in init so the GM can keep some track of everyone, and it was the enemy’s turn just when the system crashed last week.

    Modifying the fog-of-war manually without a server running affects only the global exposed area (i.e. the entire map), even
    if one or more tokens are selected. If you want your changes to apply to individual tokens, start a MapTool server with

    Grok: Grok smashes the foe down with brute strength! « 1d20+13 = 16 + 13 = 29 » for « 1d4+10 = 2 + 10 = 12 » damage
    Grok: yep
    Grok: No
    Thurirl has received initiative.
    Grok: Martial arts feat allows choice of subdual or lethal
    Vari 1: (ahh)
  • Thurirl fires off three rays of intense heat, burning into his targets with the fury of his magic!
    (Casting Check: « 1d20+14 = 13 + 14 = 27 » Damage: Ray 1: « 4d4 = 12 » Ray 2: « 4d4 = 10 » Ray 3: « 4d4 = 12 »; AP 5)
    Thurirl: “If we are eliminating the enemy in entirety… it is always best to sanitize the area…”
  • Thurirl tries to keep all emotion out of his voice completely.
  • GreatUlfe rolls on the ground trying to put out the flames, « 1d20+6 = 6 + 6 = 12 » « 1d20+6 = 14 + 6 = 20 » « 1d20+6 = 14 + 6 = 20 »
  • GreatUlfe barely avoids catching on fire
    Seiankornai: ((but he lost his great chest hair, the only properly ogreish thing about him left))
  • Wolves attack the prone ogre, biting « 1d20+13 = 14 + 13 = 27 » and « 1d20+13 = 6 + 13 = 19 » for possible « 1d10+3 = 3 + 3 = 6 » and « 1d10+3 = 6 + 3 = 9 »
  • Thurirl lines up and shoots an arrow at his foe!
    Attacks « 1d20+8 = 15 + 8 = 23 » for « 1d6 = 5 » damage, AP 4.
    Seiankornai has received initiative.
    Isabis has received initiative.
  • IsabisE steps up behind a wolf and yanks the greataxe out from underfoot
    Grok: Grok already picked up the greatax…
    IsabisE: (oh, sorry, missed that)
    Grok: ((we do have mute buttons, you know))
  • Isabis shoots her foe, hitting « 1d20+6 = 9 + 6 = 15 »
    IsabisE: “…I’m just going to stop wasting my arrows. Sheesh.”
  • GreatUlfe stands up
    GreatUlfe: “This stupid. I not die lying down, anyway.”
    Thurirl: “The target has improved your chances.”
  • GreatUlfe punches Grok, hitting « 1d20+17 = 11 + 17 = 28 » for possible « 1d4+3 = 3 + 3 = 6 » subdual
    GreatUlfe: “Give back axe, you.”
    Jessaila has received initiative.
    Grok: “My ax now!”
  • Jessaila feints to reduce her opponent’s readiness. « 1d20+8 = 5 + 8 = 13 » Prestidigitation (versus notice check) to reduce opponent to flat-footed status.
    GreatUlfe: “MINE!”
    Grok: “NO, MINE!”
  • GreatUlfe notices presti? « 1d20+11 = 13 + 11 = 24 »
    GreatUlfe: “MINE MINE MINE!!!”
  • Jessaila strikes with elfin speed and her fencing sabre. « 1d20+7 = 7 + 7 = 14 » tohit, « 1d10 = 9 » for damage.
  • Jessaila strikes with elfin speed and her fencing sabre. « 1d20+7 = 11 + 7 = 18 » tohit, « 1d10 = 3 » for damage.
    Seiankornai: ((/me is now picturing the two ogres in a slap fight))
    Grok: special character, can’t contempt
    Jamshid par-Bahadur has received initiative.
    Malaina has received initiative.
    Thurirl: “…learning Woanish was an excellent use of my time and resources. What a stimulating conversation.”
    Jessaila: “I know, right?”
  • Malaina attempts to topple and gut again
    Acrobatics « 1d20+11+2+4 = 20 + 11 + 2 + 4 = 37 » vs Acro, plus « 1d10+2 = 4 + 2 = 6 » damage
    Isabis: “At least it doesn’t strain the student’s vocabulary.”
    Thurirl: “Truly, the Woanish tongue is capable of such beautiful subtleties…”
    Grok: probably not. But your choice
  • Malaina activates the crit!
  • Dragonhawk falls again (unbeatable roll)
  • GreatUlfe falls again (unbeatable roll)
    Malaina: “No, you will die lying down.”
  • GreatUlfe spends two GM action dice: Instead of falling on his rear again, Ulfe grabs his axe on the way down and hangs on.
    GreatUlfe: “MIIIIIINE!”
  • Grok tries to keep hold of ax.
  • GreatUlfe encumbers the axe thief
    Malaina: « 1d20+11 = 5 + 11 = 16 » Halberd; AP 5, Reach 1,Trip, Bleed, Hook, 19-20 Threat (17-20 for Favored Foes)
    Grok: ((thief? he dropped it!))
    Vari 2: « 1d20
    8 = 18 + 8 = 26 » Bite Attack, Threat Range 17-20 (increases to 15-20 w/Favored Foe)
    GreatUlfe: (( ))
    Vari 2: « 1d10+3 = 6 + 3 = 9 » Bite Damage
    Vari 2: (Crit activated, and think Mala is out of AD))
    Great Ulfe dies at Vari’s Jaws, still hanging on his axe
    Grok: ((Darn, I was going to give his ax back to him, sharp end 1st))
    IsabisE: “That…is just pathetic.”
  • Vari 2 chews a bit
    IsabisE: “I mean…wow.”
    IsabisE: ((end init, obviously))
    Vari 1: “HEY! He has to share that, Mala!”
    Grok: W “He give ogres a bad name.”
    Vari 2: “Rrrrrrrrrrrrr”
    Grok: W “We never talk about this.”
  • Malaina facepalms
    Jessaila: W “Talk about what?”
    IsabisE: “Are you kidding? Is he kidding? We’re telling every bard we ever meet about this.”
    Seiankornai: “.And that’s why we’re here, and we’ll be going back once we find what we’re looking for.”
    IsabisE: “The Piercers of Darkness defeat and embarras Cronist Captain!”
    Grok: W “Ogres better than that.”
  • Thurirl would give the ogre a couple more kicks, but is really just trying to calm down from his frustration.
  • Grok checks for loot here, and moves out
    Jessaila: “You okay, Thurirl?”
    Vari 2: “hrrrmmmm, ogre not as good as orc.”
    Seiankornai: “Oh, sounds like the fight is over. EVERYONE OK OVER THERE?”
    Thurirl: “I am… not as satisfied as usual.”
  • Jessaila shouts back “Everyone except the enemy!”
    Great Ulfe posesses an actual treasure chest, containing 440 sp, a rapier with the maker’s mark you’re looking for, and an old scroll (content TBD)
    Seiankornai: “AS IT SHOULD BE!”
    Jessaila: “Oh, hey – rapier.”
  • Grok keeps the ax, and looks down this hole.
    Thurirl: “I am used to my students showing the proper fear and respect due their teacher. I do not know what foes this one has faced… but I wish to be in the nightmares of those who escape me.”
    IsabisE: ((search vs 18 Grok))
    Grok: « 1d20+1 = 8 + 1 = 9 »
    Jessaila: “Have any escaped you yet, Thurirl?”
    Grok finds a boring tunnel, nothing to kill in there
    Grok: W “Nothing here.”
  • Grok looks through hole mentioned before in this room, moveing stuff if need be.
    Thurirl: “No. However… it might have served us well if he had survived. Information is a precious commodity, as I’m sure my counterpart would tell you…”
    Seiankornai: “So what do you know of this place, besides it being infested with orcs?”
    Grok: Jamshid covered it, world politics, and their entire life history
  • Vari 1 sniffs at an orc, “This one’s still alive.”
    Jessaila: “Well, not entirely sorry I killed him. He seemed to be fighting well.”
    Grok: ((burn the crate!))
  • Vari 1 and the other Vari proceed to eat the remaining orc corpses
    Jamshid has, in the mean time, learned these things: There is an orc magic user somewhere around here, she keeps stirges as pets; horrible lizard monsters inhabit a lower level; the families of the prisoners couldn’t make the requested ransom but one of them runs an alchemy business and they might be grateful if you got their son home
    Seiankornai: “Hmmm, interesting, I don’t think we’ve met a caster yet.”
    PrisonerCourana: “You use healing potions, right? You’re sunchasers, of course you do. I can get them for you! Cheap, even!”
  • Grok searches this room for fun stuff, or things to kill
    Seiankornai: “Sounds like a good plan.”
  • Wolves follow Thurirl around, barking happily
  • Malaina searches the storage room
    Grok damages storage crates. What’s that noise on the other side?
    Malaina: « 1d20+9 = 9 + 9 = 18 » Search
  • Grok looks for noise.
    Grok: and tries to squish it.
    Malaina finds boring stored goods, and one terrified orc cowering in the bottom of a crate of rags
    Malaina: G “Hello there, you look like a smart one. Which is good, as dumb things are food for drakes.”
    Orc: whimper&
    Malaina: *G
    “Perhaps you’ll tell us a bit about what’s going on here.”
    Orc: “…waiting for the Crone to come. Nasty dwarf place, stuck here for ages.”
  • Vari 1 and Vari 2 both look over each of Mala’s shoulders at the orc
    Orc: “All the great captains killed by dwarves, Ulfe too weak to hold the city, we’re bottled in up here raiding fishermen for supplies…”
    Malaina: “Well she’s not here, I am. How many of there are you? Who’s in charge? That ogre?”
  • Orc trails off whimpering again
    Orc: “Ulfe, Ulfe in charge here until Crone send better captain.”
    Malaina: “She’s not going to now, who else is here?”
    Grok: ((can’t send a worse one…))
    Orc: “Not Oermig! Oermig just patroller, never see anything but trails, know nothing, have nothing, don’t eat poor Oermig!”
    Orc: “uh, uh, patrolls, yes, second patrol out walking.”
    Orc: “A-and archers in gate…maybe…”
    Malaina: “We took care of them, and that patrol.”
    Orc: “Burdug? Burdug maybe still here. Oermig don’t know!”
    Malaina: “And who is Burdug?”
    Orc: “Off duty, and then there are drakes, eating and burning!”
  • Vari 1 and Vari 2 look smug at that, and very satisfied.
  • Jessaila evaluates the rapier that was discovered in Ulfe’s treasure.
    Orc: “Burdug…ugh. Annoying old woman, crone-touched. She think she a captain, yes, disobey Ulfe. He so weak he let her.”
    Malaina: “Crone-touched? How exactly?”
  • Grok needs sleep. Night all. Try not to kill too much without me.
    You whisper to Jessaila: It’s very high quality; you can see why the dwarf king is willing to pay a premium for this smith’s work – besides the historical interest, that is.
    Grok is disconnected.
    Orc: “Have the crone-power. Makes magic.”
    Jessaila: “This is a nice rapier.”
  • Thurirl starts trying to think up appropriate disguises that will increase his intimidation skills (and maybe give a Skill buff =P)…
    Malaina: “I see, where is she?”
    Malaina: “Actually, come, let’s go to the others now. Be smart, not dumb. Dumb gets eaten.”
    Orc: “Don’t knooooow! Maybe in her hole, yes, with her stingies. We block them up behind crates and flour sacks.”
  • Malaina has the Varis heard him out to the others
  • Orc is dragged along barely half-resisting…Vari and Vari are behind him, after all
