Your name is Mildred and you are a witch; a full blooded broom flying, potion making, spell casting witch. Well sort of, you would be one if your master hadn't gone and ditched you, so technically you’re just an apprentice witch for the moment and fairly young as well, Sixteen years-old.In a day and age where the control of the Imperial church goes unchecked being in the witch craft business is risky work, but that doesn’t bother you much. This is what you would like to say but due to your rotten luck life can’t be that easy. Arriving in the port town of Byhollow you soon met a girl around your age by the name of Tamzen Jenny. After saving her from a rowdy Paladin she was accused of witchcraft and hauled to jail. Not wanting your new friend to become extra crispy you sprung her from jail and escaped with the help of some of Tamzen’s alchemy fire.After de-arrowing the cart you stole and driving for almost a day you come across a fork in the road, in the middle is a sign post with two signs on it.The one pointing to the right says. “Bordesly”The one pointing to the left says. “Sheffield forest”Turning to you Tamzen asks. “Which way do you want to go?”>Right>LeftCurrent Inventory:1 ornate dagger2 potions of healing3 scrolls of Great fireball1 scroll of thunderstorm1 scroll of waterbreath30 silver coins2 bottles of alchemy fireList of current know spells (because some asked last thread):Unlock (allows you to open almost any lock without a key)Lesser fireball (Basic combat spell)Charm (Charm other people, must be done through eye contact or touch)Make potion of healing (This takes time and ingredients)
>>31086324The forest. It may be more dangerous, bandits and such, but the town'll be looking for us.
>>31086324Let's go to the forest. Maybe we can get some ingredients for Tam
>>31086324>RightEh, sounds like a cool place.
>>31086324Thinking you say. "We should avoid heavly populated areas for now, the forest may be a little more dangerous in some ways but it should be safer in others."Tam frowns. "I understand but the forest is just so.... creepy"Patting her on the back you say. "Don't worry, I've got your back plus you might be able to find some supplies for your Alchemy in there" This causes her to perk up a little but she still looks uneasy.turning the cart to the left you head into the forest. Soon the sky is hidden from your sight by great trees, the forest gives you an strange feeling but it seems to be ok. Not long after you enter you come across a broken cart with a man and young boy standing by it. The man turns and waves at you.>Stop to check it out>Drive by it>Other
>>31086616>Stop to check it outMight as well help if we can, though I doubt either girl is very good at fixing carts.
>>31086616Hah. This is the most classic bandit trapBe wary.
>>31086713Sorry, meant to write "help him, but have a fireball scroll at the ready"
>>31086752>Stop to check it outthis
>>31086616Looking at the sight you worry. "Maybe we should pass them"Frowning Tamzen looks at you. "What are you talking about, we have to help them"Sign, fine "But I swear if this is a trap...". Pulling up to the cart you ask "What seems to be the problem?"Smiling the man says "Thank you, it looks like our wheel came off, do you mind helping me reattach it?"Eagerly Tamzen jumps off and walks towards the cart, signing you do the same. After a while of effort you finally manage to put the wheel back. Wiping your brow you turn to go until you hear "Well, well, well what do we here?"Standing infront of your cart are three men with swords drawn. The man you helped turns pale and stammpers out "We..we did what you wanted so let us go"One man, maybe their learder scraches his chin "Well it doesn't seem that they have much but they are a couple of pretty young galls, I guess you can go"With that the man grabs the boy and runsThe leader syas. "Well now what to do with you?">How are you?>What do you think you're doing>Attack

>>31087014Sling a fireball at the closest fucker.While noting aloud what a nice evening it is.

>>31087057>while yelling "I FUCKING KNEW IT!"This.
>>31087092Actually, if we could start singing "oh what a perfect day, I'm glad I could spend it with you"
>>31087014Looking at the men, then back to Tamzen, then back to the men you say. "Tam, guess what I'm going to say"With a look of confusion she says. "What?""I FUCKING TOLD YOU SO". With that you unslip your dagger from your belt and leap at the closest man, burying your dagger deep into the poor man's neck blood pours out. The other men are left in a state of surprise but that quickly wears off as you swing at them.The leader Growls a bit and then yells. "You crazy bitch, you're going to pay for that">Combat Start>Attack (close range)>Attack spell>Defend>RunRoll d100 for success (Best of three)

Rolled 65>>31087235Attack spell
>>31087280Yup, we're going with close range now. 92 ftw.
Rolled 90>>31087280Oh come on, why you gotta be so slow on the roll?
>>31087294No point. It exposes our magic and we have a 92 roll on melee. Also, forest fires are not good.
Rolled 91>>31087332Fair enough. Smokey taught me as much. Guess I'll switch votes then.
Can we learn spells from our scrolls? (Fireball, Thunderstorm?)
>>31087421No. It works in the opposite direction. To learn spells we'd need to find a spell book.
>>31087454But we already have the spells on us. I really want to learn waterbreathing, tbh.
>>31087280>>31087271>>31087256>Close combat (92)Standing there squaring off against the men you suddenly drop your guard and raise your hand, pointing behind the men you a look of horror. You yell "WHAT IN THE BLOODY HELL IS THAT THING"Quickly looking behind them the bandits see nothing, as they turn you're alreay on the one next to the leader, punching him in the throat and leaving your dagger stuck into his eye. As the men falls to the floor screaming in agony the leader swings at you, you block the blow and let in glance off. As he trys to recover you swip at his arm causing him to drop his blade. He stands there dumbfound and smile spreads to his face "What you gonna do kill m..."Before he can finish the sentence you kick him squarely in the nats. Dropping to floor the man rolls in pain and holds his privates.>Combat completed>Question the man>kill him>other
>>31087480The scrolls work in a one pop deal. They don't have the method of the spell on them, you just activate the scroll, and boom.
>>31087480Scrolls work by trapping a spell with in them and then filling them with magic to release that spell. You need a spell book to learn spells, but if you know a spell you can make the scroll for it
>>31087490Question him. Also: owwww
>>31087490Kill them all. Nobody will miss a few bandits.
>>31087490>Question the man
>>31087623we can always kill him after we question him
>>31087646I don't trust what he has to say in the first place. And I don't want them to buy any time. I think it's better to seize the moment. They already pretty much hate us, lets put an end to them.
>>31087680toss him in the cart and question him on the go
>>31087716Bleh, I'd rather keep a knife to his throat.
>implying i wont rough you up nienbro
>>31087490Picking up the writhing men you slam him into the cart. Putting on the scariest face a 16 year-old girl can muster you yell. "ARE YOU ALONE"Crying slighty the man says. "N..no there are more of us in the woods""HOW MANY""Like 15 or so, we we're just a scouting party sent out""WHERE'S YOUR CAMP""In the woods, near a waterfal, I swear, that's all I can tell you, I swear to god"Yelling even louder you say "SWEAR TO ME"Dropping the man he begins to cry, wow you're actually pretty good at this.>Kill him>Leave him>Tie him up and take him with us
>>31087730have tam drive and we can
>>31087758Tie him up. We bondage now.
>>31087758>Tie him up and take him with us
>>31087758Grabbing the man and some rope you bind his hands and feet, putting a gag on him as the finishing touch you toss him into the back of your cart."What are we going to do with him" asks Tamzen"When we get to the next town we're going to hand him over to the guards"Walking over to the two bodies you grab one of their swords and toss it to Tam. "Here, use it to defened yourself""O..ok but I've never swung a sword before"Sighing you say. "Well you're just going to have to try"Looking over the men you find 17 silver coins in total and a map of the forest. It says that there are three exists to the forest, the one you just came from, one to the east, and one to the northWhere to?>East>North>other
>>31088087The one we just came from. We have bandits. Going through the forest means more bandit troubles. There was a city on the other end of that fork.
>>31088087Look for a waterfall, take the exit-route that's furthest away from it, and not backwards. If we can't see a waterfall, try to get a sense of the general terrain - the waterfall will obviously not be in a flat part of the forest.
>>31088087Gotta get out of hereGo back the way we came, we don't wanna take a ton of banditos
>>31088087Lets bring the bodies along for good measure. With any luck there should be a bounty.

Rolled 48>>31088404You can't handle my girth.
>>31088087Turning the cart around you hightail it out of there. As you speed along the forest eventually recedes and turns back into the dirt road you were on, soon you see the sign come into view and you turn down the path leading into the town. As you draw closer you see farms and small buildings come into sight, hmm dainty place.Soon you make it to the centre of the small town and stop outside the guard house. Dragging the bandit inside the guard sitting at a table looks up with confusion."What's this all about?""Oh nothing, I was just dropping off some trash I picked up"The guard looks the bandit up and down "Hmm from the forest bandits I guess, been getting a lot of issues from these jerks, thanks for the help"Walking over and grabbing the man the guard hands you a small purse of coins. Nodding you leave. Now that that's over what to do?>Look around town>Try to find some local news>other
Rolled 28>>31088490Find some news. Gotta see if they're looking for us.
Rolled 22>>31088490Look for news
>>31086324previous threads have all these references to our "shackle"... what is that?
>>31088490>Try to find some local newsAnything about escaped Witches? With descriptions?
>>31088576Basically an inventory.
>>31088576i just keep replacing it with sack
>>31088623oh, I thought we were actually shackled in the first thread (as a prisoner), and for some reason formed an emotional attachment to the shackles, such that we keep on putting on them on and taking them off regularly.This (its a satchel) makes a lot more sense.
>>31088490Walking around town a little bit you see a man standing on a box yelling to the passing people. "BEWARE, LOCK YOUR DOORS AT NIGHT, HOLD YOUR CHILDREN CLOSE, AND DO NOT LEAVE YOUR LIVESTOCK UNATTENDED"Walking next to a man standing and listening you ask. "What's he going on about?"Shrugging the man says. "At that big city close by they had a witch escape" Darn, you were hoping news wouldn't have gotten this far, guess you'll have to keep Tam close.The man turns to you and grins "but that witch would have to be mad to come here""Why's that?" you ask"Our local Paladin is the best their is, he's already caught three of the magic bitches"You blink in suprise "Three!?""Yep, he's just that good"This could be dangerous. What's are plan of action.>Look around town more>Leave>other
>>31088677well oops, I blame my computer for that, we can just go with sack
>>31088677>Leavenope nope nope nope
>>31088697nonchallenty GTFO of this town.And in the future, stop going into towns. why did you even bring in the bandit? they will hang him, might as well have slit his throat yourself.Just pick a direction and keep on traveling.
>>31088763to clarify the nonchalantly part. Don't make a scared face. Comment how impressed you are and how safe it makes you feel to have such a steadfast defender against evil in town. Then excuse yourself and move on.
>>31088763Because they paid us and we got news. Now lets leave.
>>31088697"Caught three"Can you say Salem witch trials? I bet he's never seen a real witch.
Rolled 45>Look around town more( no risk no reward )
>>31088875That's my guess too, but this is still a ton of trouble.
>>31088697>Leave"Well that's impressive but if you excuse me..."Hearing the news of this Paladin you think a tactical retreat is in order,grabbing Tam's arm you power walk towards the cart and get on, As you're leave you come across a group of guards gearing up lead by the guard you talked to at the jail. Seeing you he waves and says "Well if it an't the little miss that brought it that baddy for us, thanks to you we got some news about those brats. Hey do you want to come with us and help, your cart could be a good transport for us, what do you say?">Sure>Nope
>>31088914Do it. And then we seduce and kill every last one of them.
>>31088914Sure. As tr said, no risk, no reward.
>>31088960We do have a charm spell. That can be damned powerful.But dont kill them. We don't wanna be CE
>>31088960they are the town guards, not paladinsthere is only one paladin in town.I want to say nope, but that would be suspicious. But going with puts us at great risk.I guess we could ask for more info about what they need us to do.
>>31088914Sure. We need to get rid of those bandits anyway.
>>31088914Question: where all those witches killed or are they or just one still alive in the jail? Also: take the guards. They have good info.
>>31088914>Sure"Sure, I guess it couldn't hurt"The lead guard smiles and say "Mighty obliged miss"As the guards pile on you're about to go but before you can the lead says to stay, waiting a minute another figure steps out of a building and your heart skips a beat. It's the Paladin clad in his full plate armour, as he walks over and steps onto the cart in drops a little bit. Well this is going to be fun you think to yourself. Pulling away you head to the forest.>Talk to the guards>Ride in silence
>>31089079unless they were captured YESTERDAY then they are dead.
>>31089156Ride in silence
>>31089079>>31089159Ya, here the Church has a policy of burn first ask questions later when it comes to witches
>>31089195really? i'm getting more of a "Burn first ask questions never" kind of vibe.
PS. a few things about cover storyYour name is Milly, stick to the story from earlier about being with the church... or rather, you are going up to the nunnery, the two of you travel together because you are cousins.
Rolled 9>>31089156>ride in silence
>>31089156Talk the to guards about the bandits. We heard there were 15 from the one we subdued. Also we should mention that we killed a few others and the old man and young boy who did the routine to bait us.
>>31089231Well I guess if you set someone on fire their isn't really much to ask
>>31089193>>31089257Don't do this. Talking to the guards is safer. The paladin has reason to suspect silent girls traveling alongside guards. It's better to make out to be adventurers and focus their minds on the bandits than to be quiet and tense.
>>31089156Talk to them, we need info, and staying quiet is pretty suspicious
>>31089156Talk to the guards about the bandit menace. It's safer to direct their attentions that direction. If they ask who we are, we'll say we're travelers who want to see the world.
>>31089156>Talk to the guardsSo your this paladin some of the towns folk are talking about, what do you think about these bandits? They tried to rob us but we got away and came to this town. Lucky we now got some strong guards to get us through now.
>>31089289you are right, changing my vote from riding in silence to talking.Just steer the conversation the way you want it to go and give firm answers where needed.
Talking is better.If they ask about our wagon and wares, we should say there was this girl alchemist with a man someplace back who sold it to us cheap. She seemed really nice and like she was in a hurry somehow. She said something about how she's closing down shop and just needed to move on with her life. Maybe we can use the church story we used to get on the ship if they ask what our motives were for traveling.
>>31089156>Talk to the guards/silenceDriving the cart up the road you are too afraid to make a peep as the steel giant sits in the back. You only hope that no one will notice how much you're sweating right now. The lead guard looks over to you. "So why don't you tell us about yourselves"Slightly shocked by this you say. "Oh, well I'm a student of the church and I was just travelling with my cousin here""Huh where you from?""Oh just a town near Byhollow, ummm can I ask, why is the town Paladin coming with this raid"The Paladin looks up slightly "There was reports of a magic user in the bandit camp, I'm here to deal with it""Oh....." The rest of ride is quite. Finally you stop at the place where you left the dead bandits, some small animals have already started to pick at them.End of the cart everyone stands around the Captain "Ok, here's the game plan, we're going to split up into two groups, some with me and the others with the Paladin, oh ladies who would you like to go with?">The Paladins group>The Captains
>>31089461>alchemistdo not mention alchemists, especially not when we know for a fact the church now burns them as witches
>>31089486sorry guys, I already had most of it typed before all the votes came in.
>>31089486Captains, hands down. No way we're doing the paladin vs spellcaster fight. We can be good little churchgoers and stay away from scary magics.
>>31089486wait... you want us to fight?My cousin doesn't know how to fight, at all. I mostly got lucky against the bandits who were trying to rape rather then kill me and didn't expect me to have a dagger hidden
>>31089506Well we have alchemical stuff on us right now. The point is that IF they ask about it we say we got it off of this alchemist someplace back and make them think Tamzen is someplace else. If they ask us what they looked like we should just make a show of having trouble remembering it like a charm or suggestion that was put on us.We DONT want them to ask "what are you do with this magical stuff" and have to go "oh uhhh... it's not magical, trust us, we're alchemists!" and immediately become suspicious.
>>31089486>The Paladins groupThis guy should draw all the fire so we don't have to do anything magical
>>31089631OR, we don't show them the magical stuff at all?
Anyone else tempted to join the paladin's group to orchastrate a little accident for him during the fight?... actually, what ARE our powers?
>>31089486Stammering you say "Oh I thought that you just wanted us to show you around, my cousin doesn't know how to fight"The Captain raises an eyebrow "You killed three armed men by yourself with a dagger"Looking down you say. "I got lucky"Patting you on the head the captain smiles "Don't worry little miss, I'll keep you safe" raising his arm he flexes a little "These bandits got nothing on me"Setting off the Paladins group heads up the road and plans to loop around and rejoin you at the bandits stronghold while your group heads right into the forest. After a little while of walking the Captain raises his hand "I hear something...."Suddenly an arrow wiss past his head and strikes a guard behind him, five screaming men burst from the trees with one standing in the back firing arrows>Combat start>Attack the bandits>Defend>Attack the archerRoll d100, best of thre

>>31090560> Help Tam (89)Even though the sight of Tam being chased by a screaming and confused bandit is comedy gold you should probably help her. Rushing across the battlefield you yell "HEY UGLY", turning the bandit receives your fist to his face knocking him onto his back. Not wanting your momentum to go to waste you leap on top of him and drive your dagger into his throat. Getting up you look at Tam "What were you thinking, you can't just run around like that, what would've happened if you got hurt?"Puffing her checks Tam says. "I'm an Alchemist, not a fighter"You looking over the fight, you can see that you've clearly won. Most of the bandits are dead already and only one left is currently get it's head bashed in by the Captain.Finishing up his work he stands and grins at you "See kid, I told you you had it in you"The casualties weren't that bad, only two of your group are dead leaving you with seven. Pushing on you hear more rustling in the bush and your group prepares themselves, out from the trees comes the blood covered Paladin and his group. You're not sure which is scarier, the bandits or him. After a while you hear the rushing of a waterfall and poking your head over small hill you see a fort constructed from wood right beside it. Everyone gathers around the Captain "Ok here's the game plan...">Sneak it>Charge
Rolled 69>>31090812Rolling just in case.CHARGE. Sneaking is what bandits are good at. A straight fight is not.
We seem to be using the dagger a lot. Don't we have a sword too from the bandits?
>>31090812Sneak it. Odds are, they have numbers on us. We don't want to waste our advantage.
>>31090846well you never picked one up but you probably do that later
Rolled 80>>31090812>Sneak It
>>31090846We gave it to tam, so she can have some modicum of self defense.
How many bandits are left anyway?
Rolled 31>>31090812CHARGE!FOR THE HORDE!
>>31090899That's a good point. If our numbers are even, I'd be more willing to charge. Though maybe the rest of the group should charge, while we sneak around to deal with the Mage.
>>31090899You killed six of them in your fight but you don't know how many the Paladin killed, the best guess is around 7 plus the magic user (If there is one) btw your team numbers 8 plus the Paladin (I should state that next time we're in a situation like this)
Rolled 89>>31090927We dispatched 6 of them. So now it's a 7v9.
>>31090957In that case it's a 9v8 now (assuming our interrogated bandit did not lie), so charging seems like the way to go.
>>31090957Right then. Let's charge, and see if we can slip to the spellcaster in the back.I swear to god, if it's our master...
>>31091037I don't care if it is. We don't have a choice right now, charging is better and we should leave the caster to the paladin.
>>31090812The Captain looks over the hill then back to you "Ok team, here's the game plan. That fort looks like there's only one way in, the front gate. So we are gonna fan out and take the-"Before he can finish the sentence the Paladin stands up, you all stop to look at him. "Don't worry, I'll fix it" With that he turns and runs straight at the gate knocking it over and rushing inside. For in the fort you hear "WHAT THE HELL IS THAT" before it's silenced.The Captain blinks "Or we can do that"Following the Paladin you enter the fort and engage, there eight bandits and two of them stand in the back shooting arrows>Combat>Attack the front bandits>Engage the archers>otherRoll d100 for success, best of three

>>31091165Not sure this roll counts. Didn't mention what it was rolling for. Or do we just count first three rolls, period?
>>31091168Do crit fails override other rolls here or is it still Best of Three?
Rolled 249>>31091233It doesn't. I was cussing him out for the one and forgot to turn my die off.

Rolled 15>>31091319Also of a crit success.
>>31091343Yes, but that's a given with Best of Three.At any rate, wouldn't want the dice to increase much past 3d100 like this because soon we'll have too many crit fails on our hands.
>>31091107>Engage archers (42)Running through the fight you go striate for the archers, hey if it an't broken. However before you make it there you are shoved from behind and land on your stomach, rolling over you see Tam sitting down next to you. "Really?" you ask"Hey I'm an Alchemist not a fighter"Getting back to your feet you barely dodge a swing from the bandit that knocked Tam down.

"You have two seconds to run before I kill you"The bandit pauses for a second "Ya right bitch like you ca-" Before he can say anything else you fling soe dirt into his eyes. Waving his sword wildly he yell "YOU LITTLE BRAT, DO YOU HAVE NO HONOUR""No" running at the blinded man you dodge his swings and deliver a swift kick into his balls. Bending over in pain he drops his weapon, grabbing his head you give it a sharp turn and snap his neck. After the dead falls to the floor you run to the Captain."Captain, are you ok?"Grunting the Captain sits up "Yes, yes I'm ok, next time watch your back"Picking him up you yell "Tam, help me with him"Both of you carry him through the fight to the gate and sit him down. Holding on to his shoulder you pull the arrow out, handing him a potion of healing you say "here drink this"After the potion is empty his wound is almost completely healed. "I'll be fine in a little bit, just let me rest, finish the fight"The fight seems to be going your way as one of the archers has been slain and two other bandits are dead.>Kill the last archer>Kill some bandits>other
Rolled 12>>31091810Resume the archer slaughter
Rolled 59>>31091810>Kill the last archerYuuup.
Rolled 43>>31091869'nother roll.
Rolled 25>>31091810Literally fuck archers.
>>31091810sit back and "watch over" the captain. Tend to any other wounded.Let the bandits and churchmen kill each other
>>31091810>Kill the last archer (59)Leaving the Captain in the care of Tam you rush back out into the fight. Avoiding the small clashes all around you, you aim straight for the archer that's left as he sees you coming he drops his bow and draws his sword. As you come in for a swing he blocks your attack and tires to strike back, you manage to dodge the blow. Now staring at each other you begin to circle slowly until there's a flash of steel from behind the bandit. As he splits in two you see the Paladin standing there."The battlefield is no place for a woman, treat the wounded""Hey I was doing fine without your help you big jerk""Whatever, it's your funeral"Suddenly you here someone shout "FEUER". A fireball races towards the crowd and strikes a guard setting him ablaze.>A BATTLE MAGE HAS ENTERED THE FIGHTSeeing this all your forces run to cover. The Mage laughs "That's right fools, run from me, RUN"Looking over to the Paladin you yell "TAKE CARE OF HIM"The Paladin starts to shake "I... I can't, he's going to roast me""What are you talking about, I thought you've already killed witches before""Those weren't real witches, they were just random people"You think to yourself, typical. Sigh you're the only one here who deal with him. On the ground next to you something catches your eye, it's the bow that archer threw down to fight you. Now how are you going to stop this Jerk>Fire an arrow (roll d100-20, best of three)>Fight fire with fire (Magic) Roll d100, best of three>Rush him (roll d100, best of three
Rolled 67>>31092218>Fire an arrow (roll d100-20, best of three)Might as well pick up archery.
Rolled 51>>31092218>Fire an arrow (roll d100-20, best of three)Yuuuup.
Rolled 60>>31092218magic, nigga's downright scared. Let's show him what a real witch looks like.
>>31092218Why not run away? Let the 'paladin' get killed. Save Tamsin and the captain.
Rolled 25>>31092218RUSH HIS ASS>>31092292Fuck no bad idea.
Rolled 22>>31092218>Fight fire with fire (Magic) Roll d100, best of threeFirst push him out of the way of a fireball to show that we are not evil
Rolled 38>>31092218BOWMANSHIP LETS DO THIS!
Rolled 17>>31092218Rush him. Why would we use a bow when we don't even know how?
Rolled 7>>31092218Burn it all away and use your magic
>>31092418HELL NO. NO MAGIC. THAT'S GOING TO EXPOSE US. I VOTE BOW.
>>31092218Time to learn archery.
Rolled 9>>31092456Why would we use a bow, and impose a -20 on our roll?
>>31092251>>31092218did we at least get close
>>31092495Because it beats using magic and having everyone go OMG WITCH and it beats trying to rush with rolls as bad as the ones we've got so far.
>>31092218>Bow won out (67)Scrambling to the bow you pick it up and fiddle with it, god damn it why did you never touch one of these before, your going to fix that but for now you need to take care of this guy. Notching an arrow you pop out of cover just avoiding a fireball and let it fly, your arrow lands squarely in the mage's shoulder and he screams in pain. Looking around with hatred he yells "WHO DARNS". Switching up his spells he casts lightning, arcing it to strike a few guards behind cover.>Rush him (Roll d100)>Fire again (Roll d100-10)>Magic(Roll d100)
Rolled 16>>31092546FIRE AGAIN!
Rolled 16>>31092546Firing the bow!
Rolled 46>>31092546Bow roll for a hat trick I guess.
Rolled 42>>31092546Somehow rushing looks like a really good idea now.
>>31092595So... Does doubles count for anything?
>>31092624ummm two bad rolls?
Rolled 41>>31092617I agree with this guy. But only cause I wanted to rush from the start.Also, we need to say "ME" on the way.
>>31092651Looks like we're cursed with bad rolls for now. I'll stick with bow. *whimper*
Rolled 39>>31092645But they're two IDENTICAL terrible...terrible rolls.
Rolled 75>>31092546>>MagicEveryone is too scared or dead to do anything about us being a witch anyway
Rolled 100>>31092617>>31092651rolling for this
>>31092676I THINK WE SHOULD RUSH.
>>31092676WINNER WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER
Rolled 28>>31092676no fuck'n way
Rolled 57>>31092676So... Dead Mage?Also, captcha wants me to "collect foxtree". Is that some kind of alchemical ingredient?
>>31092676HOLY FUCK I ROLLED A HUNDRED
>>31092763I've only done that once. And it was in a thread where we weren't even rolling for anything.
>>31092763>>31092676it's ok guys to counteract myself i rolled a 1 in another quest just now so its good
Rolled 52>>31092783Really? Only once? I've done it on command before. Here is an image of it.>>31087498
>>31092676>Rush the fucker (100! CRITZ)Looking around you see lightning and fire flying everywhere, guards cowering behind cover, and the Paladin pissing himself. Ok no, you're not going out like this. Hoping over the cover you run right at the mage, hearing the captain yell "NO, GET BACK HERE" Fat chance.As you catch the mage's attention he laughs "Is this the only one that dares to face me? Pathetic, come time to die little on-" before he finishes you deliver a swift roundhouse kick to his face. Holding his check he gazes at you "Ho-How is this possible".Looking down at him you say "This is the part where you run"With a look a pure horror he tries to scrammble and run away but you're already on him. Plunging your dagger deep into his throat he gurgles his last words.>Congratulations Battle mage is defeated>you absorb his essence with can be used to learn new spells if you have the spell bookThe guards standing behind cover stare at you in awe, while the Captain simply claps "Well boys, it looks like we could learn something from the little miss her, here you get first loot for that"Where do you go first>The bandits main hall>The mage's room>Loot the bodies
>>31092910>The mage's roomno question
>>31092910The mage's room. If they ask why we want his books, tell him that they sell for a lot of money.
>>31092910>The mage's roomMagic stuff YAY!! take Tam with us
>>31092850No, I was there, you were referring to an earlier hundred you rolled.Filthy lying namefag.
>>31092910You call Tam over and tell the group you'll take the mage's room. You get a couple weird looks but most of them just think that you're taking it for the rare artefacts he might have.Walking into the building where the mage came from you find a long hall with a couple of doors on each side, sensing a magical energy coming from one of the rooms you head there.Entering you see a scene of complete chaos. Paper clutter is everyone, with bits and bobbles all over the place, Tam stares in awe of everything. "IS THAT ELFEAR, WAIT THAT'S FOXTAIL, THIS STUFF IS ILLEGAL AND SUPER COOL"Sigh Alchemists, what can you do. In the conner of the room you notice a box that's locked, after opening it you find a few scrolls and a tomeGain:1 Scroll of wind-blade1 Scroll of flight2 Scrolls of Invisibility1 tome of force pushPutting the stuff in your sack, you look to see if you can take anything else>Take what ever catches your eye>Leave>Other
Rolled 14>>31093146No, I was WIZARDing. My roll was a 100.
Rolled 46>>31093181Take EVERYTHING!
>>31093200i'll second this
>>31093181>Take what ever catches your eyeTake any valuable trinkets. Gold, jewelry, typical loot stuff. Just want to make sure we've actually collected regular loot when they ask us what we've grabbed.
>>31093227I kinda still want to grab a spare sword and bow off of dead bandits after this. If we take everything that might be too greedy.
>>31093224Strongly not seconding this. That's waaay too suspicious. Lets just take a look and grab some classic loot, and let Tamlen take just ONE of the things she likes.
>>31093181>LOOT FOR THE LOOT GODLooking around it takes everything you have not to just stare throwing things into your bag, you see some small jewels, probably for mana channelling, and stuff them in. After searching you find the mana jewels, some money (50 silver pieces), and different ingredients for Tam.After that's done you head outside and meet the group. "You find anything interesting?" the Captain asks. "Yep""Ok, boys it's your turn now". All the guards rush off into the camp for their share. Standing around is you, Tam, the Captain, and the Paladin>Talk to Tam>Talk to the Captain>Talk to the Paladin
>>31093181>OtherTake everything. We have a cart to carry it so why not. There could be some valuable notes on easy ways to cast spells or where some magical plants grow
>>31093364>Talk to the Paladin>"Yeah, so did you see how I took that mage the fuck out, or were you too busy pissing yourself like a little bitch? Wanna repeat what you said about women and the battlefield?"
>>31093364Talk to the paladin. I don't take kindly to bastards who burn innocent women
>>31093400>"Yeah, so did you see how I took that mage the fuck out, or were you too busy pissing yourself like a little bitch? Wanna repeat what you said about women and the battlefield?"Fuck yeah. This.
Rolled 96>>31093364>talk to paladin
>>31093364>Talk to the Paladinso what was that about burning random women?
>>31093410>I don't take kindly to bastards who burn innocent women>"Those weren't real witches, they were just random people"What the fuck? This.
Rolled 43>>31093364Dice rolling for Paladin talk.
Rolled 85>>31093364Final dice of three?
>>31093430Hey, we said we're church students right? Can we recite church doctrine at him about this shit? I totally want to do that.
>>31093364>Talk to the PaladinAs you walk over to the Paladin he's sitting down and sipping from his water-skin. You plop next to him and say "Yeah, so did you see how I took that mage the fuck out, or were you too busy pissing yourself like a little bitch? Wanna repeat what you said about women and the battlefield"Looking at you he replys "I will retract what I said to you, clearly you are a worthy warrior". He goes back to sipping his water."Oh by the way, what was that about burning random woman?"Spitting he stands "YOU OVER STEP YOUR BOUNDS WENCH, YOU MAY BE STRONG BUT I WILL NOT TAKE AN INSULT TO MY HONOUR"However before he can reach for his sword he's hit over the head by someone from behind. Standing there is the Captain."Don't worry little miss, I heard the whole thing. This jerk is going to be striped of his rank and throw in jail and there an't a damn thing the church can do about it, man I really hate those guys"Smiling you say. "Ya, me too sometimes"Eventually all the guards get their share and head out, before leaving the Captain sets fire to the camp. After loading the knocked out Paladin and the group into the cart you all head back into town. Once there the Captain thanks you once again for all your help. Say goodbye, you and Tam start your journey again heading north.Well that's it folks, I have to get some shuteye
