Borin escort you inside where the Captain is facilitating a meeting."According to the tip from the diviner the mercenaries will be returning tonight. We've narrowed down these areas as their points of entry.Our new volunteers will deploy silent alarm spells at the key locations marked on the maps I have prepared. When one of the alarms is set off the adventurer will notify the ranking officer and we will intercept them, while cutting off their escape routes..."The captain goes over his plan in detail, it seems there are 10 locations he wants protected via an alarm. Collectively you and Alina should be able to handle it.However you will need to split up to cover all the locations.After the orders are given the guards begin to move out immediately. Either you or Alina will end up fighting the mercenaries depending on whose alarm is tripped. You must pick someone to go with you and someone to go with Alina.>Go alone>Go with Salaman>Go with Ulric>Go with both Salaman and Ulric
>>2246982>>Go with SalamanStacking mages is a silly idea
>>2246982>>Go with SalamanEach team needs a physical meatshield and a support
>>2247010>>2247127supporting, let's fuck em up good
>>2247010>>2247127>>2247204You team up with Salaman and send Ulric to protect Alina.You spend some time setting up Alarm traps.Borin: "That's the last one, now all we can do is wait"someone roll 1d1001-30 : Team Alina's alarm goes off31-95: Team Christof's alarm goes off96+: The alarm equally close to both teams goes off
Shit. I forgot it was Saturday and time for Seeker Quest.>>2246982>Go with SalamanA Team: Christof and SalamanB Team: Alina with Ulirc It's how I would usually break us up>>2246141I love the OP image
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>2247213Don't fuck up dice god
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>2247244oh boy
Rolled 88 (1d100)>>2247213
Rolled 94 (1d100)>>2247213>Team Christof's alarm goes offLooks like this has got it.Rolling for fun anyway.
>>2247244>"Alarm 4 has been tripped by a hostile"Borin: "You four: take the long way and come from behind. Cut off their escape route, the rest of you come with me"You, Borin, Salaman, and a rank and file unnamed guard intercept the invaders...You reach an slightly narrow alley.Salaman: "I sense four enchantments..."The assistant captain produces a small pouch and opens it up. A cloud of purple specks fly out and permeate the area, they quickly start sticking to and start revealing four invisible men clad in armour."The town guard!? How did they find us so quickly!? Quick break through them and escape!"Something forgot to mention when I announced the rule changes in thread 19: each spell effect currently active gives a penalty. Christof has 6 Alarms which are penalising his Abjuration rolls by 10% each, you can spend a turn dismissing 1 to all spell effects you control.>You are now in combat>Queue your next four actions>You have 44/44 hp>Attack (65%)>Power Attack (55%)>Flurry (55%)>Jab (95%)>Defend>Called Shot >Inventory>Spell>write in
>>2247409>>Power Attack (55%)Times four. Looks like those guys have good armor, better to hit strong than to hit many accurated times.
>>2247409Attack, then Power Attack one.Gotta make sure to bring at least one down for questioning before they scamper off.>spend a turn dismissing 1 to all spell effects you control.So, spend a turn to dismiss one alarm, and regain 10% or dismiss all of them?It seems unclear to me, but I'm quite tired.
>>2247513you can dismiss as many as you like in one turn, although if they escape they may trip other alarms as they try to escape
>>2247425>>2247513You dismiss your AlarmsSalaman summons a salamiteBorin attacks merc for 5 damageGuard attacks merc for 3 damage"Take out the leader!"Merc attacks Borin scoring a Critical hit! doing 16 damage, he staggers backwards in painMerc power attacks Borin for 13 damage in a crushing blowMerc strikes at Borin's head but missesMerc stabs Borin for 2 damageThe Great Oak eminates healing waves...Merc gains 8 hpBorin gains 5 hpYou power attack a merc for 20 damage"This pain is nothing fool"Salaman summons a salamiteBorin flurries the merc for 3 and 7 damageGuard missesMerc slashes Borin for 7 damageMerc crushes Borin for 13 damageMerc stabs Borin in the arm scoring a Critical hit! dealing a merciful 9 damageMerc tries to flurry Borin but hits only once for 3 damageBorin collapses from his damage, however it's unlikely he will die or suffer permanent injuries due to the presence of the healing treeSalamite stabs merc for 1 damage"Wretched summon"The Great Oak eminates healing waves...Merc gains 8 hpYou power attack in anger but your blow is avoided"Am I fighting an 80 year old?, hahaha"Salaman summons a salamiteGuard hits merc for 8 damageMerc tries to flurry the guard but is fended off by his shieldMerc stabs at guard's head but is deflected by his trusty guard helmetMerc stabs guard for a pidly 1 damageMerc power attacks guard for 6 damageSalamite missesSalamite missesThe Great Oak eminates healing waves...Merc gains 4 hpGuard gains 7 hpGuard: "Hohohoho I'm back to full power!"You power attack the villain and connect with his ribs, cracking them for 20 damage"Oooooh come on tree, come on..."Salaman summons a salamiteGuard hits merc for 1 damageMerc misses the guardMerc power attacks the guard for 3 damageMerc power attacks the guard for 12 damageMerc power misses the guardSalamite hits merc for 1 damageSalamite missesSalamite hits merc for 1 damage dropping him to the floor motionless"Forget these guys just push through!"The 3 remaining mercs stop fighting and start charging through you...>"Salaman! Grease!">"Try to tackle one">"message everyone nearby where they're running" (Alteration 5%)>write in
>>2247656>>"Salaman! Grease!"Pursue them, if the grease somehow doesn't work, then we can tackle one.If it does work, it's work the risk of getting caught in the grease.If Salaman's grease works and we don't slip too, then we smash.At least we got one.Alas, poor Borin, he... will be fine, actually.
>>2247679This sounds good
>>2247656Grease em... and light our torch
Rolled 27 (1d100)K let me just roll for Salad-Man, he's got 3 salamites up right now so he needs a 70 or lower to succeed
>>2247679>>2247681>>2247683>>2247685>>2247721>"Salaman! Grease!"Salaman casts grease in the path of the fleeing enemy and the slippery substance conjures in their path. Two of them slip over in their haste to escape but the last enemy manages to get over it at running speed and escape into the night.The guards set to intercept their retreat catch up to the fight and quickly apprehend the downed mercenaries.Shortly after Alina and Ulric and many of the other guards arrive at the scene.The Guard Captain approaches you."You are dismissed. Come to the garrison tomorrow and I'll make sure you're compensated for your assistance.">"Yeah you're welcome">salute and leave>leave>"If you need someone to hunt them down after you find their base we're up to the task">write in
>>2247754>>"Yeah you're welcome">offer to help hunt them down, not that we'd do it all alone.
>>2247754>>"If you need someone to hunt them down after you find their base we're up to the task"I would say that we are leveled and geared up enough to deal with those guys, unlike that time we got completely shitwrecked by overpowered bandits
>>2247754RIP that poor fucker
>>2247754>>"If you need someone to hunt them down after you find their base we're up to the task"Make certain they consider using us in their plans.>IHateManure.jpg
>>2247759Oh, actually I forgot we had Alina and UlricHey if they're going to give us some good stuff or money in return, we could try and solo? I'm just afraid that there's going to be like a ridiculous number of them waiting for us.
>>2247767Borin said the mercenary band only had 6 people in it when they first arrived in Oakheart, much less than the bandit gang (although the mercs are much better equipped and are able to turn invisible somehow)
>>2247767>I'm just afraid that there's going to be like a ridiculous number of them waiting for us.That's why the guard has to interrogate them, learn their numbers and such.>tfw torture would be truly, deeply horrifying in a town with a magical healing tree
>>2247771Oh, oops>>"If you need someone to hunt them down after you find their base we're up to the task"
The disappearing villagers suggests a larger operation in some way though.I doubt they're keeping them chained up in the forest like some demented Crazy Hasan's Used Slaves, or some such.
>>2247758>>2247759>>2247765>>2247778>"Yeah you're welcome""Tch">"If you need someone to hunt them down after you find their base we're up to the task">"Yes, your services should be useful. But for now leave. You and your friends are no longer needed here"you take your leave. It's late at night now, everyone is inside hiding from the erstwhile kidnappers and all the businesses are closed.>Inn>write in
>>2247798What an asshole>Inn
>>2247798>But for now leaverude>InnCelebratory pint time!
