Edwyd's Pie Parade Brigade II [DM: Rae] [Judge: Trouvere]

The wagon creaks as it begins to move, slowly, awkwardly turning around in the narrow, crowded street.

Arthur vanishes into the merchant stalls, carrying the pie.

Karl advances toward the half-giant, senseless verbage pouring from his lips. The half-giant looks more irritated than distracted. He shouts, "Silence! Where is the pie... I do not see it, where is it?!" He moves from his spot to get a better look, and he almost catches a glimpse of the surreptitious Arthur.

But Karl, knowing a thing or two about keeping things out of sight, places his body just so, directly in the half-giant's line of sight, obscuring Arthur's getaway just enough.

The half-giant, seeing that the pie has eluded him, roars in frustration. What few people are present duck behind their stalls or scatter, disappearing into side streets. "You stole my pie! I will crush you!"

OOC: initiative!

OOC: If I really was Arthur right now, I would have streaked my pants. That was REAL close! Just to be sure, will I need to make any other rolls to stay hidden or is there enough going on that the Half-Giant wouldn't see me anyway?

I am so going to feel this in the morning!

"Good sir, You really don't need to do this.I am Karl, by the way. Please remain sensible and simply walk to the pastry shop and order your own."

'I wonder what are they going to put on my gravestone?' wonders Karl.

full round action: full defense mode

Karl manages to anticipate the half-giant and steel himself for the huge fellow's attack.

He charges at Karl, enraged, club raised high. It comes crashing down on Karl's head with all the force you would expect from a crazed half-giant. Even though Karl was able to raise his hands in time to try to deflect the blow, the huge strength behind it simply overpowers the human and breaks through his defenses. (12 non-lethal damage to Karl, he has 3/15 hit points.)

People are scattering and shouting. A woman shrieks shrilly. The giant looks at the battered human before him, beaten but still standing, and a look of dreadful realization seems to fill the giant's eyes as the gravity of what he has just done overwhelms him.

Karl...

(Arthur should also roll initiative, even if he's just gonna stay hidden.)

Karl realizes that it is the lure of the famously delectable pastry the clouds the mind of the poor fellow. He stands dizzily and looks at the remorseful face of the hungry half giant and says, "I understand and that is why I forgive you. perhaps if you simply go to the shop and buy a dozen pastries for yourself, you will be all right."

Karl speaks his magnanimous words. Arthur remains hidden.

The half-giant drops his club and falls to one knee. He looks up at Karl. "I have shamed myself. My people are renowned for the power of our minds, and yet I allowed myself to be dominated by nothing more than a pastry. I... I apologize. Please. I'll not be a hindrance to you anymore." With sorrow in his face, he stands, leaving his club on the wet, muddy street, the shin of his pant leg stained with scummy dirt. He pushes one of the carts narrowing the path back to the side of the road, to give your pie cab more clearance, and then he stands well away from the street, staring ashamedly at the ground.

The cab is still heading away from you, but the driver is looking back, seeking directions.

OOC: Whoops, sorry Bob, it didn't show up in the Topic Review (when you're replying to a thread) so I missed it. My apologies.

Karl waves back the wagon. Smiling he says to the apologetic man, "Go and do good, my brother." He continues to stand next to the club until the wagon returns, his head spinning one way, stars the other and little birdies creating a small cacophony of chirps.

"I hurt" he says to no one in particular.

Seeing that the Half-Giant is no longer a threat, Arthur comes up from his hiding place and quickly approaches Karl (without dropping the pie, of course :) ).

"That was a formidable blow you survived there! I think I might have something to ease the pain, assuming I can figure out how it works. I just need to grab my backpack."

He quickly signals the driver to come back while moving towards the carriage.

Karl looks at Arthur, then the other two. "Which one of you three do I talk to? And these stars and birds are annoying!"

As soon as he reaches the carriage, he places the pie back on it and grabs his backpack, searching its contents for a scroll. He says to the driver :

"That went better than expected. Considering how collected the Half-Giant looked, I never thought he might have been hypnotized by the pie. Personally, I am glad he regained his senses."

After finding the scroll he was looking for, he finishes before returning to Karl :

"Either way, it is now safe to return."

The driver nods and turns the cab around, approaching the place where the half-giant stood, keeping a wary eye on the downward looking humanoid.

After reaching Karl, he shows him the scroll :

"I have been carrying this with me for a rainy day, so to speak. From what I know, it's a spell that heals wounds. However, I'm not entirely certain of how it works so it would be a bit of a gamble. Should I try anyway?"
 

Scott DeWar

Prof. Emeritus-Supernatural Events/Countermeasure
Stars pop out or sight and the birds start being silent.

"hih? scroll of healing? Not quite yet. He wasn't looking to shed blood. He held back the worst of his might. I'll be ok in a bit, here.A half day of good rest."

hp:3/15
damage is non lethal
from d 20 srd:
Healing Nonlethal Damage

You heal nonlethal damage at the rate of 1 hit point per hour per character level.

When a spell or a magical power cures hit point damage, it also removes an equal amount of nonlethal damage.

Arthur puts his scroll away in his backpack and replies :

"Then I assume we can proceed as soon as you have your bearings straight?"

Arthur also hands out his hand to help Karl stand.
