    IG's Herald of Discord

    A faded path wound through the brush below a thick canopy of trees. The sky was blotted out almost completely; only minute pinpoints of light found their way through the dense vegetation and shone down like a hundred tiny rays lighting up the woodland floor.

    “Ch’kluuhl! Meit ssna’ahangt! Ghaarsstkh!” The voice was high-pitched and yappy, and the consonants dragged on for too long. It was altogether an irksome combination, the kind of noise that made your spine cringe.

    And it was wholly evil.

    “Gignsna’atu! Ma’arkhulmnak!” There was no mistaking the command as the clawed finger pointed out the targets, and the three bloodthirsty hyenas gave chase. The commander, himself a dog-faced biped, made for the shrubbery just off the path… and just out of sight.

    I think I've given you plenty of room to move on this map; please try to refrain from moving or pushing enemies off of it... especially to the south.

    Descriptive elements go above the map, followed by initiative order and other technical bits underneath it, along with any OOC information. A brief status block will follow. Please use invisible castle to verify your rolls. As you can see, I'll roll initiative for you.

    Selenia shifts her sword to a two-handed grip, not keen on letting the vicious hunters get into range of her less well-armored companions, and springs past the two warlocks, her blade cutting a light slash into the side of the first Hyena. "Khemnos, get your slow ass up here," she calls back with a laugh as she readies herself to receive the hyenas' counterattack.

    Move: Move forwards 5 squares.

    Standard: Charge Hyena 2 (if 2 is dead on my action, charge 3), hit AC 25 for 7 damage.

    Jarl moved forward, the surrounding shadows seeming to pool around him.

    With a snarl he said, Some welcome this is.

    The grim dwarf eyed the foremost animal with an unrivaled malevolence, almost as if he could turn it to ash with nothing more than his dark thoughts. Then he roared and raised his carved black rod high and in answer a gout of flame rose from the ground.

    Hey, I don't mind a battle. Its fun. She smirks then a shimmer of energy encompasses her and she winks out to reappear 5 squares in front of her. She then unleashes a flourish of eldritch energy as she marks and attempts to harm Hyena 3 with her Eldritch Blast.

    "Let's send these dogs to the Raven Queen, then figure out what we need to do here," Khemnos says. The tiefling moves forward, invokes the power of the Raven Queen upon the nearest hyena, then charges.

    Mechanics

    Move action - Move towards Hyena 2.

    Minor action - Divine Challenge Hyena 2.

    Standard action - Charge Hyena 2.

    Charge Hyena 2 (1d20 7 1=16, 1d10 3=7)

    Hits AC 16 for 7 damage.

    If Hyena 2 is dead on my turn, I'll charge Hyena 1.

    Also, could you add coordinates to the map? I find that's very helpful for describing movement precisely.

    The hyena barely manages to sidestep the flames as they sprout from the ground.

    The hyena yelps again and staggers backwards from the blow of the second sword. Still, the thing presses on.

    The uninjured hyena takes advantage of its lack of attention and lunges at Midnight, tearing her flesh painfully.* The hyena previously injured by Midnight steps up and aids the other in focusing on the teifling. Alone, Khemnos might have a fighting chance, but together they prove too much for the Raven Queen's chosen and take a large chunk of meat from his arm.**

    The gnoll takes advantage of the ensuing chaos and chooses this time to step from the corner and draw its bow. As the others are focused on the hyenas, it takes deliberate aim and plants an arrow deep into Selenia's thigh.***


    * Midnight takes 8 damage from the hyena's bite
    **Hyena 2 misses, Hyena 3 hits Khemnos for 8 damage
    *** Selenia takes 15 damage from the gnoll's arrow

    Khemnos follows Selenia's lead and takes advantage of Sehanine's blessing. Just because he serves the Raven Queen doesn't make the tiefling impractical. Swinging his blade at the hyena, the blow lands, if only a glancing blow, but even that encourages Khemnos to fight on.

    Mechanics
    Standard action - Bolstering Strike against Hyena 3.

    Bolstering Strike against Hyena 3 (w/Righteous Brand) (1d20 9 3=20, 1d10 5=6)

    Hits AC 20 for 6 damage (+1 more to hit if it's bloodied), and on a hit, Khemnos gainst 2 temp HP (included in stat block with a hit assumed).

    Thanks for the coordinates!
