    Carolina pulls the trigger on her crossbow just as the ship crashes into a wave, sending her bolt far off target. She curses quietly, and scurries behind a different cannon.

    OOC: Kruk- Porse was in H16 (My fault not updating stat block) so i put you adjacent to him at H17.


    Covered with burnt blood, Telsa spotted Carolina as she repositioned herself. "There you are! Arrrrhh!" he shouted as he charged to her and buried his blade into her arm.

    Porse slashed at Kruk again, but the thin blade could not find a gap in his armor. "Lay down your swords, and I'll not harm you further."

    The offer seemed a bit disingenuous, as the archer loosed a bolt that bounced off the back of Kruk's armor.


    Motion in the Ocean

    Active effects:
    I will roll these
    As the boat crests/troughs the swells, the angle of the ship's deck will change dramatically between forward and Aft. Athletics or Acrobatics check, DC 22:
    On a success you are not moved. On a fail, you are pushed three squares in the direction of the downward slope (forward or aft). If a push would move you to a square off deck, push over deck rules (below) apply. If you roll a nat 1, you fall prone.

    The NPCs are considered to have +15 for this skill check.


    Passive effects:
    Moving to the upper side/from where the water is coming, takes X2 squares of movement. Going to the lower part of in favor of the swell, lets you move an additional square for each square you move in that direction. I will include the below stat block in my posts, which will hopefully make this effect quite clear.

    Check Map Block for Current Deck Direction
    Push over deck
    The ship's railing prevents normal push/pull/shift falling rules. So, if you use a forced movement power which would normal be able to move an enemy off the ship, the enemy still rolls a save; If the save passes, movement ends at the deck railing with no other effects. If the save fails, movement ends at the deck railing and the character goes prone.

    To actually get someone over the edge, you need to:
    1. Grab (standard) sorry, the bad guy gets a chance to escape
    2. Sustain grab (minor). Lift and Move grabbed enemy (Standard) with a STR vs. Fort. to force the enemy over the rail. The player's STRx20 must be more than the enemy's weight, which I think might preclude some of the smaller characters from attempting this.
    Cover/Concealment
    Most of the junk on the ship's deck is not that tall. Since Carolina is small, she can crouch behind the cannons and the boats to get total concealment. Everyone else at medium size would need to go prone behind the objects to achieve the same effect. Otherwise, you can get the -2 variety only.
    Dim Light

    Characters who have normal vision canít see well in dim light: Creatures in the area have concealment (-2 to hit with melee / ranged). Characters who have low-light vision or darkvision see normally in dim light.

    I have adjusted the enemy stat blocks to include any attack penalties as part of their stated stats.

    Adventure Summary

    Motives
    Everyone: Report back to Byron & decide what to do with the information about the brotherhood.
    LB3 Summary

    Summary of Events
    1. Bested Pirates en route to Allaria. Traveled on the ship Wind's Will captained by Captain Levenbrech, and mated by Porse and Trig.
    2. Arrived in the port, to find it besieged by Lizards from the unending mire. Defeated lizards and met/teamed up with Charina.
    3. Journeyed to Geardagas and asked the locals for information with mixed results (link to the leads gathered).
    4. Went to the temple of Netari, where the new priest, Father Niris, has been tending to the ill (apparently quite poorly). He led the players into the catacombs, where his zombie minions ambushed. The priest, over confident, rambled on about Hellview (background reference for players).
    5. Dealing a mortal blow to the Priest, he says Master De Luccia (First time they have heard the name) cannot be stopped, and he stated that Greggor "will be... among the first... at Hellview." The priest laid dying on the floor with his fallen minions.
    6. As they approach Hellview, they encounter the ghost of Sir Alistair Glasston, who begged them to enter the cave and retrieve his lost battleaxe.
    7. They entered Hellview, and came across a portal, as well as some guards/workers. It seems they were using zombies to dig a new path near the portal...
    8. They step through the portal into a bizarre world. A demon statue looms ahead, with a tall gate behind. The bodies of fallen adventurers, as well as a dead demon, lay about the floor. Wil Triggered the Demon statue trap, alerting the nearby demon's.
    9. After a long battle, they slew all of the demons who had come through the hell gate, and they found Sir Alistair Glasston's lost battleaxe. But Greggor was still missing, and there is the question of why the demons were digging.
    10. Hergunna departed the group to alert the local militia, while the others pressed ahead North, trying to find the source of the demon-aligned miners, as well as the lost silver.
    11. They came upon a wall blocking the road to the mine. Mounted knight Brother Arleas leads a band of outlaws and zombies to defend the mine entrance. After slaying the Knight and half his men, the remaining wizards and archers closed the gate. The battle continued until only the fat temporal wizard, Alaria, remained alive. She pleaded for her life to be spared.
    12. Alaria identified the men who hired her as being part of the Brotherhood.
    13. They entered the mine and found Greggor with some other miners. Greggor shows them a path recently carved from the mine into the Hellview portal tunnels. They are using the tunnel to subvert the protection which bars them from exiting the portal into Alaria.
    14. By the portal, they opened up the wall to reveal a hidden demon temple. Inside, Master De Luccia brings the demon Amendfohl (the same demon that Sir Alistair Glasston fought during the fall of Allaria) back to life. De Luccia Declared, "The time for the Brotherhood of the Bright Eon is once again at hand." The players slay the demon, and De Luccia offers them a deal where everyone just walks away. The players balk, and attack. DeLuccia drops Kruk and threatens to kill the dwarf if they don't leave, but the players press the attack, and kill the brotherhood master as well.
    Summary of Events
    1. The adventurers return to Geardagas. They meet with Count Saga, who puts them on a quest to Alert Daunton to the Brotherhood threat and request aid for Allaria. They are joined by the mage Khemnos.
    2. They board the Wind's Will to return back to Daunton, but things seem off. The Captain and his second mate are missing; First Mate Porse seems to be running the ship, and he is his usual unfriendly self. Over dinner, they question Porse, and get a bad feeling about the Sailor's intentions.
    3. The Sailors made a move against the adventurers at night. The sea is rough.

    You're words mean nothing! Kruk then unleashes a flurry of blows on Porse, one of the missing but the other scoring brutal wound that makes the captain scream in agony.

    action

    attack: brash strike 1d20+16 for 1d10+7 = Miss

    minor: none
    movement: none

    AP attack: brash strike: 1d20+18 for 1d10+11 = crit for 21 + 2d6= 8 for 29 damage

    mark Porse


    ooc: note: if anyone hits Porse with an attack, Kruk gets another free attack. This occurs once per round
    for the rest of the encounter.

    Umm.. let's try that again. Second Chance, and the attack is at -5 since Carolina has the Nimble Dodge feat. The attack also cannot be a critical hit.

    Carolina's halfling luck saves her yet again as Tesla spots her and closes in. She sidesteps the man's attack and comes back around with her off-hand, resorting back to her faithful dagger. She brings the blade up and slashes deep across the back of his knee, sending he human staggering back into the foray. Quickly, she retreats to the cover of a different cannon.

    Actions

    Minor: Hidden Blade
    Standard: Positioning Strike
    -vs. Tesla; hits WILL 24 for 16 damage, slides to H12 (Roll Lookup)
    Move: K16 (Stealth=1d20+15=17)
