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.
Natalia swallows and says, "...Group aiming first, then...Big dwarf...Heh, big dwarf." But that doesn't do much to dispel her nervousness. Turning to Valen and Kurt, she asks, "Retreat if dangerous? So many..."
Mithril shifted nervously "Do you want me to send a spell their way? While you enlarge Kurt that is. I mean it will still take them some time to reach us and the spell will hit." She tried not to look Miriam in the eye. The woman seemed almost hysterical with hate and Mithril did not want to direct the anger toward herself.
Kurt slides off his horse, nodding at Valen and Miriam. "We all aim at the big mean one, shoot and then you can make me big, Miriam. I'll take the hits." He plants his axe in the earth before him, taking aim then. "If it's to be done, we'd better do it now, before they see us."
As the first Ogre turned to notice the party, Kurt l
Squeezes his hair trigger, sending a bolt of death off at just the fight second, catching the Orge Leader squarely in the ribs, a loud road before it turns and begins quickly moving towards the party sounding a stampede from the Other Ogres.
You picked the only Ogre in Leather Armor since he is a ranger and isn't wearing Medium armor.
And with Bless, its a moot point.
Map in Signature
Valen Shields himself.
Valen slips off his horse, slapping it's haunches with his Greatsword as he draws it, sending the beast to safety. He then reinforces his arcane protections as he steps forward to help stem the oncoming tide.
Of course it missed. Why should she have expected anything else? Natalia gets off the horse and draws her weapons, though she keeps it close for when they inevitably have to run for their lives. Assuming they aren't killed first.
The horde of Ogres advance cautiously, each have drawn their huge javelins as they advance. The sheer bulk of the Ogres works against them as they are forced to move around each other to attack their smaller foes. Though that same bulk and size is what gives them a deadly reach.
They have all double moved. Remember the reach of the Ogres.
The Leader has his Club already out, the other four have their Javelins as they could not capitalize on the same speed as their leader and plan on throwing their ranged weapon before drawing their massive clubs.
Mithril slid down from her horse and turned around in time to see the ogre's leader charging. Hurriedly she cast one of her new spells at the creature, watching a green bolt exit her palm and fly toward the ogre.
Ranged touch attack but I don't know their touch AC. The SRD says it is 8 so I will use that.
Acid will last 1 more turn, doing 2d4 damage again.
Seeing the acid hit, she brightened. Maybe they would be able to kill these ogres.
The massive brute falls for the now large Dwarf's taunts, their natural hatred coming through as he drops his javeling and pulls out his massive greatclub as he charges the readied Dwarf.... As the Giant nears Kurts axe hits true, catching the Giant just above the knee as even enlarged, the Dwarf is barely taller than an average man. As the greatclub comes down, Kurt's natural skill against Giants saves his hide...
AoO(d20+8) vs AC 13
If he is still on his feet
Charge!(d20+11) vs AC 19 Seriously, a 3!
Bolstered by how quickly Kurt, Mithril, and Valen killed the first ogre (though more than a bit squicked by the gore of Valen's killing blow), Natalia reloads and shoots her crossbow, attempting to contribute to the fight however she can.
Mithril slightly cursed the fact the ogre leader had gone down so fast. She hadn't been able to see the full effects of her spell. Then she remembered what they where facing and hurriedly sent off another bolt at the farthest ogre. Maybe this time she would see what the text had meant by "lingering effects".
Casts at Ogre 4 (within range)
Attack (1d20+3) vs AC 8
next turn 2d4 more damage done to ogre 4 (if this hits)
Her hand shook as she sent the bolt off and it wobbled a little in it's path, almost veering off. But the bolt managed to right itself and to Mithril's relief it sped into the side of the ogre in the back of the group.
Two of the Ogres throw their Javelins, one at Kurt, the other at Miriam before moving up at drawing their great clubs, preparing for a devastating charge... one inbeds itself at Miriam's feet, but the other hits Kurts enlarged form right through the guts inflicting an impressive amount of damage as the point of the javelin can be seen protruding from his behind his floating ribs, a deep scarlet begins to stream to the ground...
The third moves up, smacking the sleeping Ogre in the head and waking him as he draws his own club opting to wake his unconscious brethren instead of throwing his Javelin...
The Sleeping Ogre wakes in time to stand up and throw a javelin at Shiny in response to his arcane gestures... but thinks surprisingly clearly as he instead whips it at the naked Valen... but Valen is nimble enough on his feet to avoid the blow the javeling glancing off of the arcane protections around him harmlessly...
Attacks made with a -2 Range Increment included
Vs Kurt AC:19 (d20+6)
Vs Miriam AC:17 (d20+6)
Vs Valen AC:20 (d20+6)
Nice sleep spell, had that not worked this round could have been very very ugly.
As the ogres come closer, Natalia reloads her crossbow and shoots at the nearest one, hoping to soften them up slightly so Kurt and Valen can go in for the kill. There's still a bit too far away and a bit too large for Natalia to want to take them on without any magical enhancement like Miriam gave to the two barbarians.
