If anyone hasn't caught on yet, there were a grand total of 13 slaves (Grot included) aboard the howdah. There are 10 of you. You've got 2 NPC's plus Igor. If you didn't follow the one group that asked who you'd be fighting, then you wouldn't know Grot spoke about that at all.
I'm at work at the moment and can't access the tab I've got saved with all the stuff that's about to go down. Please bear with me; I'll have things up around 6 or 7 (EST) today.
Re-enactments are fun because the guy playing Ulysses Grant usually has a real-life drinking problem.
Oh and happy early Irishman's Day.
I wanted to, but I figured I might as well do it this way to let your own luck decide how quickly you die be more player-inclusive.
I'll also offer the option to take my reroll, better or worse, if you ask.
Enemy Initiative (rolled offscreen; won't say who's who):
will post once everyone has rolled. (To keep me from forgetting to update.)
Loose sandy floor. It's a bit like the beach, but less so. No shells, no jellyfish, just... sand. You probably won't be able to get 50' from Sandpit, but that's still a hole they'll have trouble getting out of.
And if anybody in particular out there'd like to try burrowing, I'm not going to say no to the idea.
This is going to be interesting, so are we meant to lose or win in this reenactment?
Can you tell us what each letter looks like, so i know who im attacking. Mostly gear and race, at least what we can see.
It's a reenactment of a successful Draji siege, and the guys dressed like Aztec warriors are the Draji army.
No prob; I was going to get to it eventually, but here it is. The funny comments, while laughable, are serious and should be taken into account.
A: Human, armed with a greatclub and not much else. He looks like a Mohawk warrior filled with steroids.
B: Mul armed with a shortbow, a pair of maquahuitl, and chitin armor.
C: Mul armed with a maul and shell armor. He is Hans...
D: Half-giant armed with a greatclub and some leather. ...Und he is Franz.
E: Human armed with a pair of daggers, some javelins, and leather armor. He looks oddly like Bruce Campbell.
F: A human decked in shell armor and plenty of javelins at the ready. To you, it looks like he's beatboxing under his breath.
G: Human geared with a tkaesali, maquahuitl, shield, and leather pieces. He has a beard. Watch out.
H: Human geared with a tkaesali, a wicked bone sword, shield, and chitin. He, too, has a beard. Maybe a mullet.
I: Human with great maquahuitl, chitin armor, some daggers, and hair like David Bowie. Or Cloud Strife.
J: Mul armed with a maul and decked in a shell/leather combo. The spitting image of a bald Neil Patrick Harris.
K: A mul dual-wielding maquahuitls and wearing some chitin. He looks pretty pumped about something. Maybe it's because he's dual-wielding.

Thanks for pointing that out! The unmarked circles are 10ft x 5ft stone obelisks that can be used to provide cover.
Yes; you're expecting trouble and have weapons drawn. Unless you're fairly confident in your ability to take these guys barehanded.
Still waiting on Ogalae and Rieken; we're 8/10... or 18/20.

Keep with two threads; post in your respective threads, keep tabs on what gets posted in the other.
Note: There are 2 threads for a reason. This fight is going to be a deviation from the norm. Because of the two groups, I made some major modifications, this battle being one of them. This is just a little bit of grind before the real fun begins.
