# (IC) Against the Giants PBP Group 1

##### 5ever, or until 2024
give me a stealth roll with disadvantage (because of, IIRC your 11 down out of a dc of 12.)?
11 down out of a DC of 12?

In any case, he is very quiet.

(now I get it. No, 10 down. Tenibor is an elf, of course PwT will work for him. But he had to drink from that gourde!).

Eoghen did the same as last time, mentally psyched himself up to go with a bold internal melody, then climbed the rope. The trip up was without incident, but on the way down if it wasn't for the regular beat of that music in his head he would have lost his grip.

 OOC: Eoghan grants himself bardic inspiration, then climbs. Athletics check with adv to climb (up then down): 2D20.HIGH(1)+1 = [15, 13]+1 = 16 2D20.HIGH(1)+1 = [5, 8]+1 = 9 Oh shoot, he's going to fail the climb down, so he uses the inspiration. Bardic Inspiration: 1D8 = [3] = 3 9 + 3 = DC 12, just barely making it.

Valda holds off going down the chimney until the rest of the group has made it up the rope and down themselves, figuring that if needed her boots would be helpful in case something goes wrong.

 OOC: Stealth: 1D20+21 = [8]+21 = 29

Bible prepares to reenter the steading, bracing her feet against the chimney as she climbs the rope.

Once at the top, she carefully lowers herself down to the hearth, using her remarkable athleticism to alight as softly and quietly as she can.

~Ahoy! Let's keep 'em away from the entranks this time,~ she thinks to the others as she regards the orcs and giants.

With the exception of Quinn, who was still in owl-form and circling the courtyard, everyone was down, crammed into a single chimney and hearth with a large removable iron grate. Valda was last, and she stood above the others, her feet stuck to the inside of the chimney like a spider.

Eoghan had had a bit of trouble getting in (his belt had stuck on an iron pot-hook that was firmly attached to a stone, and he'd nearly pulled the stone free, but he kept his head, and calmly, silently extricated himself and slowly pushed the stone back into its place.

The kitchen staff continued at their work, oblivious to the sooty group crowded into one of their fireplaces.

Bible reminded everyone, with her sailor's charm, to remember to try to keep things from escalating, this time around.

 OOC: How do you want to do it? You will surprise the kitchen staff, if you choose to attack.Only about two of you can see out at a time (Jack and Tenibor, ATM) without climbing over each-other. You can move out, but you will be seen at that point. In theory, you could talk to them, but you'd loose your chance for surprise. I'm easy either way.

Jack silently nods at Bible's suggestion. ~I can block the east exit to the courtyard if two of you cover the north and south. Just say the word when your ready.~

He then pulls out The Knife and whispers something inaudible, causing a barely perceptible sheen to cover it.

 OOC: Jack uses an action to activate his dagger of venom.

It was too hot and crowded in the kitchen fireplace to stay for long. They would have to make their move quickly, or they would be found out. It was time to go.

~<Go, now!>~

Eoghen again called on his Mantle of Inspiration, granting everyone movement and resolve, for all but Quinn still above.

He followed everyone out*, swinging to the north, and then with a flourish on his bandore a set of brambles and vines pushed up blocking the door to the south.

 OOC: Eoghan uses a bardic inspiration for Mantle of Inspiration. Everyone but Quinn gets 8 tHP and can move their speed without taking OAs as a reaction. Once everyone takes their reaction movement, there should be space for Eoghan to move out. He's going to just exit and step north, call it K35. As his action, he will then use the Fochlucan Bandore to cast Entangle in front of the doors to the south. Q44 - T47. It is not targeting anyone so no saves are needed. But until I drop it, it's difficult terrain so should be hard for anyone to run for help. Eoghan AC15 HP 74/75 THP 8/8 HD 3/9 PP19 SSdc17 0/4 0/3 1/3 2/3 1/1 BI 3/5

Like a cat, Jack pounced from the fireplace and sprinted across the room to the western doors, dodging and weaving between the hill giantess and one of the orc lackeys. Once positioned, he then set his feet and brandished The Knife and his short sword.

 OOC: Jack moves, dashes, and then uses cunning action to dash again to AB 36 or thereabouts. Assuming the giants are surprised, hoping he avoids any AoO as he runs by.
