    Leif's "Hold of the Sea Princes" Greyhawk Alpha Game [AD&D 1E] [IC 01]

    Camlin the Runner, Shiyana of Shadebough Circle, Odo Acolyte of Pholtus, and Turthain of the Emerald Cloak Revein Telereil are seated in the common room of the Red Axe Inn on Old South Road in the City of Briarwood on the northernmost coast of Flotsam Island just off the mainland in the Hold of the Sea Princes. You have all just finished a very filling meal of crocodile steaks and mead. Suddenly, a youth rushes into the place yelling, "Quick! Somebody raise the alarm! Some Orc prisoners have escaped and are killing everybody in the city!" You suspect that he might be exaggerating just a bit....

    Turthain stands, brushing some crumbs off of his clothing. "I suppose that we should see what the fuss is all about," he says. "Perhaps a chance to earn a few coins?" The elf picks up his longbow, and quickly slips the string into place.

    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

    Shiyana places a hand on the young man's arm and tells him to stay in the inn. Then she cautiously moves out of the inn, sticking close to the wall to see what's to see.

    She'll have her shield on her arm, but waiting to see what the actual story is before brandishing her weapon.

    Cam gets to his feet after Shiyana and follows her out of the door. He places his hand on her shoulder and gently steps in front of her, keeping the inn to their backs. "Stay behind me. The Circle said I was supposed to keep you from getting killed". He lays an arrow across his bow and notches it, pausing to listen for the sounds of fighting and try to pinpoint the location of the jailbreak.

    Turthain moves after the others, more than happy to stay in the back of the group. Not that the elf didn't relish the thought of sending an arrow through an orc's eye...but he knew that orcs could be brutal in close proximity. Better to cut them down from a distance.

    OOC: One initiative roll per side, please. Hmm, so it looks like we have a tied initiative for our first melee! Shall we assume that the combatants meet halfway and proceed to duke it out? Yes, yes, I believe we shall. Orc #1 moves toward Camlin. Orc #2 moves toward Odo. Both attack when they arrive. Orc #1 misses Cam, but Orc #2 slashes Odo's left thigh with his broadsword, inflicting 5 hp damage to the cleric.

    Shiyana has no problem conceding to Cam's instruction.

    "My thanks, Ranger Camlin. I shall endeavor to extend to you the same courtesy." the druidess says with a slight grin.

    Revien follows the others out the door, shield ready and with one hand on his longsword, ready to draw it from its scabbard if there are orcs on the loose.

    the Red Axe Inn on Old South Road, in the CityState of Briarwood -- Turthain's spell

    As Turthain intones the Words of Power and sprinkles the sand from his pouch, a swirling eddy of wind(? there was no wind!) catches the sand, lifts it up three feet, and carries it over the man and the two orcs where it precipitates like snow, coming to rest in the corners of their eyes. All three of them collapse gently to the earth in slumber, the man's head cushioned by the paunch of the orc who threatened him while his feet rest upon the neck of the orc who pilfered through his belongings.

    The two orcs coming out of the alley-way gasp audibly upon seeing this spectacle! They look for a moment as if they might flee, but then they look at each other, and the fear each feels and sees mirrored in the other's face steels his resolve. They grimace and shout, draw broadswords, and come looking to avenge their fellows!

    OOC: I can put together a map if I must, but I don't really think we're going to need one. You guys have got this, right???

    "Huh. Well thank works nicely." Shiyana says to the masked elf.

    <OOC: So, @Leif, we need to roll our own initiative then? If so, and no one else minds, here ya go.../OOC>
