    Andras spends the time dragging wagons and overturned troughs into position to serve as makeshift barricades. "Well," he says to himself, "that should slow down some big beasties." Upon completion, he walks over to the fence and tries to ignore the platoon of poultry nearby.

    ooc: Construct barricades in AA17, Z19, X21, V21, T21, and R17, in that order. Wait in T14. As a reminder, Andras has darkvision.

    Quagmire tries to keep an eye on Sir Exsixten, but after an hour of watching him drill chickens, he mutters something about a headache, and goes to lie down for a while.

    OOC: Aid Another to whatever Sir Ex is doing for an hour, then nap for five hours.

    Blunderbuss

    Superior Two-Handed Ranged Weapon
    Cost: 100 GP
    Damage: 2d6
    Proficient: +2
    Range: 5/10
    Weight:8 lbs

    Brutal 2
    Load Standard
    Critical Miss:On a critical miss the gun misfires, damaging the user for 2d6 damage. This uses up the ammo.

    Lead ball ammo may be purchased in Ravenloft or made by hand. May also be loaded with scrap iron, rocks, etc. but these do 2d4. Black powder is needed also (this may be purchased in Ravenloft or from the Jade Kingdom).



    GM: Jax may borrow the blunderbuss, but he receives only a +1 bonus to hit since he was only taught the basic workings of the device. The bonus goes away after the encounter. Also, borrowing it will leave the family defenseless if the creature were to get into the house.



    I'll try to post a full update in a bit

    The party sets up various barricades, traps and other precautions in preparation for the battle with the creature and takes their positions.

    It is night time. Tense minutes turns into hours as you lay in wait for the beast. Suddenly a bone-chilling howl comes from the west. It is answered by three more howls. You hear rustling through the trees and Andras spots four large shapes coming from all directions; one large wolf-like creature walking on its hind legs and three other giant wolves. Soon everyone can see them with the moonlight. The wolf to the north spots the Warforge and gives a growl, but the others seem to have not noticed the party yet.

    Sir ExSixTen drops the bucket of magical chicken feed he has prepared. The chickens clanking in their armor gobble it up with great speed. Soon their tiny minds are flooded with magical energy. There were not chickens, but dragons who happen to looks like chickens dedicated to the Lords of Awesome and they would give their life for this metal man and the Awesome Lords. Eyes glowing with battle fury, they give a defiant squawk and prepare for battle!

    GM: I placed Quagmire at the house since you did not specify where he should start at.

    I'm assuming that Sir ExSixTen is dropping the magical chicken feed as a free action.

    No light as of yet.

    Did Jax borrow the blunderbuss?

    OOC: Jax very much likes the blunderbuss, but it's not really suited to his melee-heavy style of fighting. He'll leave it with the farmers.

    I'll wait a tick to see if anyone lights a sunrod.

    Quagmire moves close to the pits. He snaps open a sunrod and tosses it past the pits.

    actions and tactics
    Move to U12.
    activate sunrod and toss it to around T9 or so. I don't feel like looking up what kind of actions that is, but presumably I can do it in a standard and a minor.

    Tactics wise, it seems like there's a left/right thing going on with this terrain. Two courses of action spring to mind: either we try to put down the alpha (south) quickly, then all move over to the right and count on the pits and barricades to keep the stalker occupied for a round or two, or we let Sir Ex tank the right side with his chickens, while the rest of us focus down the left guys. Kind of leaning toward the latter at the moment.

    Also: Best. Chickens. Ever.

    Dorn's breathing becomes heavier as he eyes the gigantic beasts closing on their location.

    "Perhaps I can slow this one", Dorn mutters to Brenn. "Stay close," he says, as a wave of darkness billows around the sorcerer, obscuring him (Minor - Deep Shroud (sustain minor) - Dorn's square and all adjacent squares are heavily obscured). The sorcerer stands up (Move - stand) and sends an icy explosion toward the nearest beast. The blast rocks the creature, slowing its every movement (Ice Dragon's Teeth hits Stalker In The Dark for 29 damage. It is slowed TENT).

    (Dorn starts every encounter with 5 tmp hp.)

    Deep Shroud (Heavily Obscured) Cheat-Sheet

    Dorn and all adjacent squares are heavily obscured.

    When in a heavily obscured square, you have cover against adjacent enemies and superior cover against anyone farther away.

    Cover = -2 to hit
    Superior Cover = -5 to hit

    Cover and superior cover only affect ranged and melee attacks.

    OOC: Thanks for the light Quag.
    As far as tactics go, Jax is going to stick near Sir Exsixten for flanking and sneak attack. So I'll try to burn down the northeast wolf while the western ones are (hopefully) delayed by the traps.

    Those chickens are awesomely awesome.


    Jax's target is illuminated! He shakes of his rat form to become a kobold once again, and then he dives out of the tree and charges the wolf engaged by Sir Exsixten.
    The sight of the dragon-chickens inspires the kobold into a frenzy! Jax "ROAARS" during his charge as he leaps over his own pit traps, finally slamming into the wolf at the end with a powerful strike.

    Jax stat block / actions
    Actions
    Free: change back to kobold form.

    Move: walk to T13. Jax makes the athletics roll to clear the pit even on a one, so I won't roll.

    Standard: Charge to O18! MBA vs DWΩ #1 CRITS for 48 damage. (1d20+15+3+1=39;[1d4+10+1+2d8+4]=35; Crit: 2d12=13)
