    Girrack shrugged as Thargol passed, thinking he'd let one of his kin live a little longer. The orc-like creature showed the agility of an elf, diving past the monk and coming up in a roll behind him. He quickly began to draw a shortsword, his face turning a paler still, green.

    Thumbs up Re: Orc Politics (IC)

    ((Sorry for not posting. I got spirited off to work beofre I could finish )) Reflex - (1d20+2)[8] Girrack falls to the ground, laughing all the while. He shrugs from his position and complements Mexanis on his choice of spell. "The only problem with it, dear mage-friend, is that you've quite possibly singled yourself out as the first person I'm going to kill, unfortunately....." He smiles at the wizard frighteningly.

    Round 2

    Thargol's opponent sends a quick stab, being careful not to put himself in peril. Attack - (1d20+3)[21] Damage - (1d6+2)[7] The cowardly orc-creature shows a surprising amount of strength for its build, the chops of its sword stronger than most soldiers'. One blow throws the monk slightly off balance, allowing his enemy to score his arm. Assured the half-orc would not be able to strike back at him, the cowardly monster stabs home, scoring the dodging target's side, deeply. [7 points of damage to Thargol. Man that stings.....]

    Krey skirts around the edges of the grease, and gets into ample range to strike at Girack. He swings his quarterstaff, leaving a brown trail behind the head, and aims for the ribs, his favorite target in battle, though hoping at the same time that the strike does not kill the orc.

    Girrack effortlessly blocks the oncoming blow with his great axe. He then begins to raise, allowing Krey to strike at him again. [AoO on Girrack.] He then smiles at the gnome, and says, "All of you try your best to hit me." He goes into a combat stance.
    Jeff meanwhile, smells the blood leaking from Thargol's side -- and although he wants to help his master fight the orc, he doesn't like the smell of the grease and figures his master can handle himself better anyway. He charges at the orc-creature, growling in his throat. The frail looking creature squeals in fear as it saw the dog leap towards his throat. Attack - (1d20+5)[22] Bite - (1d6+3)[5] The orc-thing stabs at Jeff, forcing him to change his course or be impaled. Although he misses the orc's throat from the maneuver, he claws the enemy's face and bits hard into his shoulder. The orc-creature screams and slashes vigorously at the wolfhound, the scratches he causes in Jeff's hide not severe, but forcing the dog to jump away before the monster regains enough sense to make a more proficient stab. [The orc was hit.]

    Arianelle looks at the horribly wounded and quite obviously dead body of the orc Graagdush with dismay, and shoots a glare at the dwarf. Hiding half the time when we need him, then this butchery... The mad orc who started this is back on his feet, though. Catching the little wooden symbol hanging from her wrist in her left hand, she holds it up. "Light, be with us..."

    Glaring right back at the Cleric for a few seconds is all the Dwarf can manage before his face cracks into a wild ear-to-ear grin that shines on the polished surface of his axe. Ruthless glee echoes between his gasping laughter, he parts the air (and maybe a skull) with his blade like he's driving a nail in the ground with the sharp edge while Girack is unable to defend himself. Whether that hits any flesh or not, he twists his body and hauls the axe back up after it's done for a second attack from earth to sky. He didn't stop laughing for the Chieftain's brother to bark over his voice.

    Gritting his teeth through the pain, Thargol attempts to refocus, lifting his right leg slightly and searching for an opening in his opponents cover. He then slams down his leg forcibly near his opponents foot hoping the diversion created suffices, unleashing a series of blows and kicks.

    The goblin-orc, manages to avoid the flurry of punches, only being bruised slightly by the ones that barely hit him.
    The grease soaks into the ground, the stuff covering Girrack seems to simply disintegrate. The Chieftain's brother grins at Mexanis, over Gauli and Arianelle. He gives a salute to the wizard while still grinning then turns down to Gauli. "Now, if your culture does not consider this a rude question: Should I kill you, Master Dwarf?" he asks curiously.

    Round 3

    The orc-thing, seeing the vicious dog, and not doubting the strength of his supposed kin, he whistles loudly. A steady trot can be heard not far away, but not the the sound of a horse's hooves. He smiles weakly, as he listens to the steady approach.

    Although Krey hits Girrack's legs squarly, with iron legging and boot he easily shrugs off the blow.
    The orc ponders what to do for a moment, then smiles, turns swiftly and lines Krey with the flat of his axe. [roll=Attack[1d20+4[/roll] [roll=1d12+4[/roll] ((I'll use Invisible castle for these.)) Krey narrowly dodges the flat of the large axe, but he senses that he'd be in a coma, or worse, if one of the orc's mighty blows meet with him. [Missed, barely.]
    Jeff, stopping long enough to see the attack on his master, growls ferociously and charges resolutely at the orc. Attack - (1d20+3)[23] Bite - (1d6+3)[8] Girack's eyes shut for only a moment in the pain of the dog's teeth around his arm. He smiles again, and bites Jeff's neck. The dog whimpers and jumps away from the orc, growling at him a moment after landing -- and ready to plunge at his throat once again. [Hit, 8 points of damage.]

    ((NPCimg Mexanis till the end of combat.))
    Mexanis begins to wonder about the goblin-orc. Girrack was obviously being dealt with quite well, but the other creature may very well bring reinforcements.... And where's Gaariss? The wizard runs over to within range, and casts a ray of frost at the fleeing goblin-thing. Ranged-Touch-attack - (1d20)[2] Ice - (1d3)[1]

    Round 4

    The orc-creature's terror-struck face lightens visibly when a worg charges suddenly towards it. The beast stops a few feet short of the goblin-orc, allowing him to mount. The worg shows obvious signs that it will bite at Jeff or Thargol if they try to stop the mounting humanoid. [Attack-of-Opportunity for Thargol and Jeff, but the worg might get involved in the fight if you do.... It's Krey's choice whether Jeff attacks.]

    Thargol takes a half-step away, eyeing the creature suspiciously, but, thus far, avoids a direct confrontation.

    Many thanks to El Goonish Shive for the banner image.

    Give a player a fish, and he’ll probably try to sell it to an NPC fisherman.

    Teach a player to fish, and next week he’ll show up with the book, “The Complete Adventuring Fisherman”. He’ll start hunting for some monstrous leviathan to catch and enslave, and he’ll be dual-wielding two fishing poles.

    Jeef stops short of the worg, rather upset to forgo the challenge. The goblin-orc rides his mount quickly into the distance, showing no signs of planning to return. [Goblin-orc has left combat.]
    Girrack turns to face the dwarf, the chops horizontally downward, the sharp of his axe facing the dwarf. Attack - (1d20+8)[28] Damage - (1d12+4)[15] The axe cuts steadily through Gauli's shoulder and continues through to his chest. Girrack quickly pulls the axe free, watching the dwarf fall injured to the ground. [15 damage to Gauli. Since the site with his sheet is down, I'm not sure about his current status.]
    Jeff tries to bite the nasty orc once again. Attack - (1d20+3)[17] Bite - (1d6+3)[7] Jeff lands against the orc's lower back, trying to sink his teeth through the chain shirt and into the fighter's kidney. Girrack spins around almost before the dog even lands, smacking the beast with the handle of his axe and sending it to the ground before it can do any damage. Jeff manges to shake off the blow, it more propelling him then doing proper damage. He growls indignantly, but gives a hurt whimper when he sees the dwarf lying on the ground near death. [7 damage to Girrack.]

    (If I'm counting right, Gauli's taken 17 damage so far between this and the arrow. He ought to still be alive, at least.)

    The dwarf's sudden collapse is shocking, both in its suddenness and in that his squat form still shows signs of life. Arianelle makes a quick pass with her left hand and reaches out to touch Gauli. "Light keep you..."

    That done, she steps forward to threaten the mad Girack.

    Gauli feels death's chill leave him with almost uncomfortable suddenness. His entire body screams at him in pain for a few agonizing seconds, but then he feels his muscle regrow and wounds close. [Gauli is now at 4 HP, and is prone.]

    He didn’t even feel the change. He was blinking his eyes trying to force himself to stand again when he realized he didn’t have his axe. Fumbling to find the handle another growl jumped from him. “Grraaargh!” He kicked the ground back down again and hacked at something, he couldn’t see the black world but if he stopped moving he was dead.

    ((So you stood up? I'll assume you did.))

    Girrack blocks the brave dwarf's axe with his own, forces the fighter back on one foot, and brings his axe back for a quick strike. Attack - (1d20+8)[26] Damage - (1d12+4)[8] Although the Gauli blocks out most of the orc's blow, but still the axe continued on -- stabbing lightly through Gauli's chain shirt and into his stomach. Had the axe advanced much further, the dwarf surely would be dead, but still the wound forces the brave dwarf back to the grassy floor. He tastes his own blood filling his mouth, vomits, and passes into a painful half-conciseness. [Gauli takes 8 damage. He is down to -4.]

    Hmmmm.....luck might not have been with him that day, but he, thought, courage had not yet deserted him. Gritting his teeth through the pain in his wounds, Thargol closed with the hulking orc, snarling, in orcish.

    "Delivering death is calling it´s attention upon yourself as well. You would slay us, and yet......"

    Thargol went into a series of short jabs, all at openings Girack closed simply thorugh moving, before he lunged into the final, powerful thrust, locking his entire body behind the punch.

    Although the majority of Thargol's attacks get through, Girrack's axe and chainshirt prevent any of the more deadly punches, including the last most powerful thrust. Girrack smiles. "Very nice try," he offers politely, sarcastically if you look at his face. "You did very well I assure you."

    Mexanis
    The Orcs words had frozen Mexanis in fear, but when he saw Gauli struck down, the same who had protected him from the Kobolds, he snaps. Yelling the words of power, he shoots his palm forward, and a icy blue ball seems to fly from it to Girack.

    Mexanis moves down 5 feet so that Gauli's unconscious body is in a line with Girack.
