Ongoing Games (In-Character)Play-by-post games are going on in this forum as we speak (well, read). All threads on this board are actual games, so please, only post on a thread if you are a player of that game.
Gnoll-wise, Brow will have snuck up behind it after the others released it and deal with it quietly if the others didn't bother to agree with killing it. Since it's almost dead, I doubt it'd take more than one hit and such so I'm not rolling unless you ask for one
Seeing the figures up ahead, Brow clutches her drawn dart tight in her hands, crouching low to the ground whilst remaining silent to observe what could very easily be a threat.
Sabra notes a path that would allow the group to neatly circumvent the Ogre and Orcs. Taking them around a distant hill, it would provide a good amount of cover but would add an hour or two to their journey.
Jonas, on the other hand, spots an uneven break in the grass a short distance away which stretches on into the distance. His wilderness experience leads him to suspect that it is a small gully that the group could sneak along, coming close to the Orcs and Ogre, but remaining hidden without greatly increasing travel time.
Nadia nods, speaking softly, "Yes, we should try to avoid them."
Assuming that they communicate this information to the rest of us, Hex considers for a moment. "Let's take the long way around. No need to push our luck. Though I bet we could take 'em, let's not bother if we can help it."
Lovely Thaxos, Elder Serpent avatar by... someone! I've forgotten in the years, sorry! Please, let me know so I can credit you!
I'll assume all of you take 10s on Stealth checks then.
The group sneaks away from the arguing ogre and orcs, taking the longer but safer route to circumvent them.
After traveling on for several more hours, with dusk approaching, the sharp eyed among the group note a camp in the distance.
In the light of the fading sun, you spot several tents nestled between two small hills about 600 feet to the north-west.
There are a few campfires lit sending forth tendrils of smoke. The tents are made of animal hide and there are spears planted along the edges of the camp to allow for quick defense. The layout of the camp would make for easy defense and movement.
DC (1d20+18) (You see one), (1d20+17) (you see two)
There are two well-armed orcs standing in the shadows of the tents, looking bored and surly.
Seeing the camp up ahead, Brow listens in what the others see before giving her own input.
"If this is a camp tasked with killing the Sacred One, then it'd be better if we took out the people in charge now so that they won't be organised enough to come back to haunt us in the future. I think it'd be a good idea if I snuck in there and dealt with him quietly and effectively on my own."
Her suggestion is accompanied by a serious scowl, as if suggesting it was something only she could do well.
There are no clear symbols or banners on display, the camp is strangely nondescript for orcs. Four of the tents are noticeable larger than the others. There are fourteen tents and they are positioned strategically with a care that is, again, uncommon for Orcs.
Jothan turns to Brow: "Don't be too hasty. I think there are more than a few orcs. From what I can sense, there are ogres too. About four of them.", he stares at the camp ahead. "Even if you manage to eliminate a few of them in silence. How long will you remain unnoticed?"
