(IC) Against the Giants PBP Group 1

Valda drops to floor of the chimney when space becomes available, moving swiftly due to Eoghen's inspiration. She continues to hoof it towards the southern doors to cut off any attempt to retreat through them. When she finally stands between the enemy and the doors, she calls upon the rune magic to grow in stature to better hold the line.

OOC:
Using the reaction to move towards the south, then follow up with a dash to get around the hill giant and get in the way of the door. Then using bonus action to activate Giant's Might.

The group burst forth from the fireplace. Jack crossed the kitchen at a sprint. As he passed the giantess who held a rake, she startled as if she were a human grandmother and he was a mouse. Eoghan stepped forth and caused vines to burst out of the dirt kitchen floor, they writhed about and blocked the south door, as Valda grew large and made her way there to be sure that no one would make their way through.

OOC: Just @Hriston Bible and @TerraDave Tenibor to go. And @VLAD the Destroyer Quinn (if you're about, otherwise I'll use him to keep an eye on the courtyard guards).

Tenibor followed Jack past the startled giantess, who waved her rake in the air overhead. Two of the four orcs had been there for the previous battle. They had no desire to be slaughtered like their kitchen mates had been, and they immediately scattered. But the doors to the south were covered by writhing vines and a giant swordswoman, and the doors to the east by an elf wizard and a crossbowman. They looked about helplessly for a way out.

Bible had stumbled on her way out of the hearth, and so was last to do her bit. The only door that was left without sentry was the north door, to a mess hall, she remembered. She did her bit, running across the kitchen, and she vaulted a barrel, rolled and came up by that door. She listened at it while keeping an eye on the nearby giantess. At the moment, no sounds came from the north chamber.

Quinn circled overhead and confirmed that for the time being, the armed courtyard guards were none the wiser.

OOC: I figured I'd just run Bible to the north door. @Hriston I hope that's okay.

Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal
The tall firbolg looked around at everyone sprinting to make sure none could escape, but then his eyes came back to the closest giants and orc and the lack of anyone between them.

<Oh bother.>, he cursed under his breath in Sylvan.

He strolled south and called to the giant near Valda, imbuing the ridicule with mental barbs, ::Hey, is that your face or did the wolves vomit again?::

OOC: Move south in a straight line to K41.
Vicious Mockery vs. the giant schlub near Valda. DC 17 WIS save or 6 psychic and disadvantage on next attack.
Vicious Mockery: 2D4 = [3, 3] = 6

~We got 'em surrounded,~ whispered Jack through the mind link. ~Now let's get this done.~

Suiting his words, Jack lunged toward the nearest orc and plunged The Knife deeply in its foul hide, letting the virulent poison do its work. Just as swiftly he then retreated back to Tenibor to block the eastern exit.

::Drop yer weapons and get on the ground unless you want to end up like yer friend here,:: Jack shouted in orcish to the other orcs.

Legend
Jack stabbed an orc, who gurgled and began to foam at the mouth. The orc staggered and fell on the floor, writhing in great pain before shuddering and lying lifeless, bulging eyes staring at the ceiling. One by one, the other orcs did as Jack said, dropping whatever they were holding and kneeling on the ground with their heads down.

Bible threw two axes at the giantess holding a rake. She screeched as the axes bit her flesh before falling to the dirt floor. Suddenly, as if she were insane with panic, she rushed at Bible and swung her rake, nearly knocking the sailor off her feet.

OOC: Jack did 10 & 13 poison to Orc1 (died); Bible did 26 to HGS1 who did 13 back. @Shadowedeyes Valda & @TerraDave Tenibor to go for the round.

5ever, or until 2024
To quote the ancient elven saying: Its deja vu all over again.

Tenibor will move north 3 squares and the remind the giant fighting the Reeve of its mortality.

(Toll the dead. DC 16 Wis save or 13 damage.)

Tenibor leaned against the wall of the little bedroom and made a low sad gonging noise. The giantess with the rake was now a step closer to her grave. Valda stepped up and slashed the other giant with her sword, taking his attention away from Eoghan.

Quinn landed on the edge of the roof near the east door and reported that so far, the armored giants were simply patrolling the courtyard, unaware.

OOC: Tenibor did 13 to HGS1; Valda did 17 to HGS2.

"Aaiieee!" cried the giantess as she stumbled and fell from Jack's blade in her calf.

She swiftly silenced as she bled out and Jack wiped his blade clean.

OOC: Jack killed HGS1.
