    OOC: Yes, until the giant sees the folks in the hallway leading to the south, (Sanne/Thanor/Yoggrith/etc) you would have the opportunity for a surprise round.

    Hoping his companions will pull together and act, Aeranduil sights an arrow on the giant from his position in the shadows, and lets shaft fly.


    Single attack only for surprise round:

    Attack +18, damage 1d8+8+2d6 bane+1d8 range precision
    - Rhun

    For every one hundred men you send us, Ten should not even be here. Eighty are nothing but targets. Nine of them are real fighters; We are lucky to have them, they the battle make. Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior. And he will bring the others back. - Heraclitus of Ephesus, 500 BC

    Surprise Round

    Aeranduil - attack Giant - MISS with Nat 1
    Ipshivi - Move to BJ53, draw wand.
    Sanne - Move to BK41


    The unseen elf draws back his bowstring and takes aim at the lumbering giant, but, finds that attacking a walking, alert giant can prove more difficult than a sleeping one, as his fingers catch on the bowstring and send the arrow off target immediately.

    Ipshivi feels the arrow pass her by -- just missing her by an inch.

    As the arrow strikes the wood wall at the end of the corridor with a loud "thwock", the giant's head wheels around and sees it. A look of slight confusion is on his face as he whirls his head back around and looks down the hallway....

    Well so much for the element of surprise
    , Ipshivi thought. Now things were going to get messy... With a sigh, she scampered across the ceiling, moving into the corner so that she had a clear line of sight down both hallways. As she moved, she rummaged through her Haversack in search of yet another wand.

    Sanne, after noticing the giant to be not carrying rocks, or any visible, throwable object, slides over against the wall and waits for the giant to approach.



    OOC: All others unable to act in surprise round, but can roll initiative and actions for round 1. Use last map posted above for positions.

    Wow, that's a crappy natural 1 at a most inopportune time. Especially with a high damage roll like that. *SIGH*

    (if the giant doesn't appear to be carrying any rocks or other ranged weapons)
    Sanne moves a square over to BK41 (which should put her out of the Giants LOS, and allow her to 5' step into flanking position if it charges Aeranduil).

    (if it does appear to have ranged weapons)
    Sanne moves to BI45, closing with the giant as quickly as possible.

    Moving quickly the green wizard draws forth a wand as he moves to the corridor and points it at the ground under the giant's feet, with a word the footing for the giant becomes dubious.

    Initiative 21

    grease forcing a reflex save and if he tries to move through it a balance check with failure halting him.

    Round 1 - Partial

    Initiative:


    23 - Morika - Move to BJ40, ready action (invoke anklet of translocation) - action triggered, teleport to BJ38
    21 - Ipshivi - Move to BJ53 (on ceiling)
    19 - Giant - Charges Morika -attack - MISS (no one there), Will save vs Test of Mettle FAIL, Reflex Save vs. Grease FAIL, Will save vs Bane FAIL
    19 - Sanne - (delayed until after giant) - Tumble to BI40, attack giant HIT (crit) for 30 damage
    19 - Voadam - (delayed until after giant) - cast Grease (BJ41 - BI42 affected)
    15 - Thanor - Test of Mettle, move to BK40, attack giant MISS
    9 - Aeranduil - 5' step to BJ37, full attack - HIT/MISS (Nat 1)/HIT for 42 damage
    3 - Yoggrith - Cast Bane, step to BL40



    Morika moves to the intersection mentally preparing for the charge she expects from the giant. Still she is confident that if it happens she can avoid it without much trouble. Holding the rage of the beast under tight control she calmly steps out in front of it.

    "Hey, ugly, don't you just love when meals walk up on you?"

    Well so much for the element of surprise, Ipshivi thought. Now things were going to get messy... With a sigh, she scampered across the ceiling, moving into the corner so that she had a clear line of sight down both hallways. As she moved, she rummaged through her Haversack in search of yet another wand.

    The giant looks slightly puzzled by the words of Morika, but his intent appears clear -- he raises his great club and charges the small shifter, closing the distance between them in the blink of an eye - as he raises his club high over his head, the shifter winks out of sight, and instantly appears back by Yoggrith and Thanor -- the swing of the greatclub meets nothing but flooring. The giant lets out a confused cry.

    Cursing under her breath about her compatriots lack of tactical sense, Sanne moves to a position where her less-nimble collegues can move in more effectively, and attacks the giant, piercing its thigh with her rapier, nicking a major artery, causing blood to splatter on those within 5'.

    Moving quickly the green wizard draws forth a wand as he moves to the corridor and points it at the ground under the giant's feet, with a word the footing for the giant becomes dubious. The giants feet slip out from underneath it and he drops to the floor with a loud "THUD"

    Finally, Thanor chortles in satisfaction as he sees the giant round the corner ahead. This is what me axe has been waitin' for! Striding forward, he calls out a challenge, then brings his axe down on the giant's forward leg. That'll teach ye to look where ye're goin', ye overgrown goblin!

    Aeranduil steps backward, snaps up his bow, and unleashes a volley of deadly arrows at the giant, the first one strikes it squarely in the chest, the second flies off at a bizarre angle and flies down the hallway -- impaling itself against the far wall and missing the invisible Ipshivi by a mere inches. The elf corrects his aim and hits his target with his 3rd arrow.

    As the action begins and the fighting ramps up, but no one yet getting hurt... Yoggrith has a few seconds to consider various alternate options.

    "This creature needs to learn a little fear I think." says the halfork. He quickly casts a compulsion on the giant, then moves right behind Thanor.

    OOC:

    Initiatives posted. Just a question @ Voadam - since you act before the giant, you want to cast grease underneath the giant where he currently stands, correct?

    Condition Summary:

    Voadam: (43/43) - Mage Armor (~ 6 1/2 hrs)
    Yoggrith: (90/90) - Spikes (~ 7 1/2 hrs), Bear's Endurance (60/80 rounds)
    Aeranduil: (64/64)
    Sanne: (65/65) - Giants Bane Infusion (180/200)
    Morika: (66/66) -
    Ipshivi: (46/46) - Walk Unseen, Spiderwalk
    Thanor: (110/110)

    Giant: 72 dmg, prone, Test of Mettle, Bane

    Gray area is Grease AOE, blue halo means prone.

    Sanne waits for the giant to act before making her move. (Delay)

    ooc

    She doesn't want to be up in melee against a giant by herself, and would rather not have to resort to tumbling tricks to set up flanking, so she's trying to encourage a fight at the intersection, where up to six people / friendly summoned creatures could melee the giant instead of two.
