Previous Episodes: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=seeker+questCharacter Sheets: https://imgur.com/a/AUQv7Inventory + Spellbook: https://pastebin.com/s811YMmLYou sit uncomfortably on a wooden stool, seated at a undersized desk pushed against the conference table. Five guard captains and two other adventurers sit in attendence.Captain Leefside: "Welcome esteemed captains of Alfor. I would like to introduce you to our valiant volunteers"He outstreches his arm to the kiddie table where you and the other two adventurers are seated.Captain Leefside: "The gladiator Hack Ravage from the Oakheart arenas. The journeyman wizard Klyleus, skilled in evocation and enchantment. And Christof; known do-gooder in western Aflor"Captain Blackyard: "When do we kill the orcs?"Captain Leefside: "Aha well, we will move out two days from now to meet up with the Duke's army and then the battle will begin"Captain Appleby: "So we just sit around doing nothing for two days?"Captain Leefside: "Well not exactly, you can never be too prepared for battle. In particular there are some orcs lingering outside of the walled territory that I'd like eliminated. Which is why I invited the adventurers. Now that the reinforcements are here we have enough Talons to spare to pay you for your troubles. Will you eliminate the stragglers for us?"Hack Ravage: "Sure"Klyleus: "Well actually I'm more of an *urban* adventurer I don't like going into the wilderness so no."The captains lean forward slightly and turn their attention to you.>Actually I found a source of magic that I could use to help the war effort. I want to make that my priority>Just tell me where they are and I'll do the rest>What's the pay?>Sorry there are some things I want to take care of first in the next two days>write in
>>2479058>>Just tell me where they are and I'll do the restI don't remember if we found anything magical lately we could procure in two days, so this.
Yay you're back!>>2479058>>Just tell me where they are and I'll do the restI don't remember the source of magic
>>2479058I haven't visited in a while. Have any party members died yet?
>>2479157>>2479164>Just tell me where they are and I'll do the rest"Great. Here's the location, you should be able to get there and back easy. Good hunting."He proceeds to give separate orders to the gladiator as you exit. You find your friends waiting outside.Ulric: "How did it go?">"They want us to do one more thing before the fight begins. We just need to take out some orcs that strayed beyond the walls. It will be good practice for the battle ahead."Salaman: "You know we could not attend the battle if we don't want to. We're not even Aflor"Alina: "*I'm* Aflor"Salaman: "oh..">Leefside Map>"You don't have to fight with us Salaman but I want to help these people">Leave immediately (towards the orcs)>write in
>>2479290>"You don't have to fight with us Salaman but I want to help these people"
>>2479157>>2479164>source of magicI mean the obelisk that the goblin mentioned last thread>>2479198no ones dead yet. It's hard for a party member to die given the rules and tone of the quest. But it technically *can* happen, just don't fight a super demon or whatever.
>>2479290>>"You don't have to fight with us Salaman but I want to help these people"
>>2479290>>"You don't have to fight with us Salaman but I want to help these people"I do believe preventing genocide by orc is a worthy cause to fight for. Besides, they would be remembered as heroes and might get hero perks like discounts.
>>2479297>>2479308>>2479382>"You don't have to fight with us Salaman but I want to help these people"Salaman: "I'm just saying the risk reward ratio doesn't appeal to me. A stray crossbow bolt or a bad ambush could be the death of me. But I'll fight with you. After all you might die without me"Ulric: "You know you don't have to do stuff for a reward all the time. Helping people can be fun too">"The reward might be better than you think. If we play a major role in the battle or take out their leader we'll be heroes"Salaman: "true I'm also interested in ransacking Xorag's book collection">orcs>Leefside>write in
>>2479412lets head out
>>2479412>>orcsGather info about them first. If we can set up a good surprise attack we will reduce the risks. Also, we should totally try to have a more defensive style, the battle with the merc captain showed that opponents with high enough toughness are more than willing to tank our attacks to one-two shoot our squishies like Salaman or Alina.Salaman did equip some armor this time, right? I remember everybody was using some degree of armor but him last time, which made him have as much armor as paper tissue.
>>2479444>checkedSalaman is still wearing cloth, but you gave him your Ring of Deflection so he's got that
>>2479417>>2479427>>2479444Your journey eastward takes you a little bit off the beaten path. You take out your map for the fifth time in the last 10 minutes.Alina: "Are you sure you know where you're going?">Feel free to take over Alina>I think we're a bit off track here...

>>2479412I'm down to pick off some stray orcs.But we should at least check out that obelisk on the way back.

Rolled 1 (1d5)>>2479563>55With only the bare minimum in navigation skills you get a little bit lost.This 1d5 determines the result1 - Correct destination after delay2 - Obelisk3 - Orc Caves4 - Monster Lair5 - Clarcton
>>2479624oh thank dice gods
>>2479624After a long detour you manage to get yourself back on track. The sun goes down and in the distance you spot the light of a fire. You approach it and sure enough there are four Orc grunts armed with low quality bronze huddled around it shouting at each other."You get us lost stupid""No you get us lost!""Me point guard you map guy""Me not know how to read! Gulgar is map guy""Me was following Ogg"Alina: "Huh I guess you knew where you were going after all, sorry Christof">attack>imitate an orc voice, try and incite them to fight each other (disguise 17%)>wait until they sleep>walk up to them and try to give them erroneous directions (luck ??%)>sneak attack (stealth 38%)>write in

>>2479733>>wait until they sleephopefully this does not end tits-up>>2479412 looks like a porno cover lolpoor little wizard boy
>>2479808>>2479747make ulric do it, freeing us from moral responsibility>>2479815lol
>>2479815>poor little wizard boyyeah the intended file name was something like that>>2479822>make ulric do it, freeing us from moral responsibilityImplying Christof has ethical concerns about exterminating non-humans
>>2479740>>2479747>>2479808>>2479815You spend a bit more time waiting for them to sleep. You should still be able to get back in time. (assuming you don't get lost again.) Three of them sleep while one of them stands watch. You don't know that much about orcs but this one seems pretty good at keeping his vigil. It seems unlikely that he'll drop his guard and if he's attacked he'll certainly wake up the others.What do?>ask Alina to try and take him out with an arrow>sneak attack alone (stealth 48%)>everyone charge>write in
>>2479849dat emo orc>Alina to try and take him out with an arrowthat way if things go to shit we are not in the middle of 4 orcs. Soloman should be pre summoning
>>2479849>>ask Alina to try and take him out with an arrowBut have Ulric and Christof sneak closer first to rush him if it goes awry.
>>2479863>>2479870>>2479876Alina notches a piercing arrow and takes a shot at the sentry. She scores a sneak attack critical causing 22 damage and knocking the target down. The orc lets out the sound of a stuck pig and the other Orcs start waking up and scrambling for there weapons as You and Ulric descend upon them.In combat, characters can now use counter attackEg: Ulric uses Counter [Power Attack] on the same turn his Opponent uses Power Attack. The enemies attack is negated and Ulric gets an automatic critical hit to the torsoCounter does nothing if you guess incorrectlyThings you can counter -Attack -Power Attack -Flurry -Jab -Defend -Called Shot -CounterAll called shots are the same as far as Counter[called shot] is concernedif both combatants counter[counter] at the same time FUN occursIt's mainly to stop characters from using nothing but the same attack>You are now in combat>You have 48/48 hpQueue your next four attacks>Attack (81%)>Power Attack (71%)>Flurry (71%)>Jab (95%)>Defend>Called Shot >Counter>Inventory>Spell>write in

>>2480176See you legendCounter mechanic is a great new addon
>>2480175>Queue your next four attacksLet's mix it up>>Attack (81%)>>Called Shot to the head>>Flurry (71%)>>Jab (95%)
>>2480175>Counter [Power Attack]>Flurry>Attack>Power Attackwhy not test out the counter? the orcs have been already revealed to use power strike
