Kahru-the-bear bellowed as the giants pelted him with a barrage of stones, one hitting his snout causing the bear form to fall, it did not stop his bellowing however.

Kahru the barbarian raged, the corpses of the dead giants spurred him on, he swung his head along the fire wall and spotting the young giant in the corner, leapt over the bed and rushed towards him, intending to shove him in to the flames
OOC: what size is a Young HG? Anyway will attempt to Shove YHG 6 into the firewall
Attack : 1D20+7 = [19]+7 = 26
Shove (advantage): 1D20.HIGH(2)+2 = [12]+2 = 14

OOC: They're at the smaller end of large. You may notice that I play around a little with icon size, to reflect "actual" size. I started this because statblock-wise, the "Schlubs" are large, and yet, they're supposed to be Hill Giants, which are nominally Huge. I figure that a Hill Giant ranges from Large to Huge depending on how tall and fat they are. The statblock for the youths says Medium, but I feel like that's a long way to go to get to Huge, and I don't want them to be little giant kids. They're more like teens. So they're Large, just not as big as many large creatures. Bigger than a goliath or a firbolg, though.


the magical equivalent to the number zero
Satisfied with the pandemonium his spells have created among the enemy ranks, Duvrael carefully saunters after his companions. The wizard carefully steps over the bodies of giants and mentally prepares himself for the "ma and pa" giants to come out of the next room.

With a hint of sadness, Duvrael realizes he has already used up his most powerful magic. But there's always another fireball...

OOC: Move then Dash to AZ-49. Maintaining concentration on the Wall of Fire.

Gimlack grunts as he focuses on a giant and stabs at its mind before he attempts to telekinetic move it

OOC: action: mind sliver on yhg6 if Kahru’s shove attempt fails int save dc 17 or 4 damage & next save at -1
Bonus action: telekinetic shove through wall

If Kahru is successful, Gimlak target yhg8 and pull at it

The Colonel continues to the double doors, and ensures that they are barred. Once that is done, he makes his way towards the fray.

OOC: Move to AV 52.
Action: bolt the door.
Continue move to AY54.

Meanwhile, as planned, Donnell also prepares to enter battle.

OOC: Move to AZ44.
Action: Dodge.

Doc watches the bear-Kahru transform back into just Kahru, and hurtle himself toward another giant. Gotta admire that gumption. Doc follows the raging Barbarian full of fury and purpose for a few feet, and then stops to fire his spectral revolver at the Kahru's target.

Doc moves to BD 53.

Bonus action- Doc moves HEX to YHG6
Action- Doc shoots twice YHG6 (first shot with sneak, as YHG6 is engaged by Kahru)

First shot, sneak attack (target engaged), hex: 1D20+9 = [2]+9 = 11
1D10+5 = [3]+5 = 8
2D6 = [2, 2] = 4
1D6 = [2] = 2

Second shot (no sneak): 1D20+9 = [9]+9 = 18
1D10+5 = [8]+5 = 13
1D6 = [3] = 3

Looks like only one hit, 16 damage.


Kaligan tried to lift a young giant with his mind, who held the door-frame until the psychic was forced to give up the attempt. The young giant then swung a club at Kahru, foiling his attempt to push a sibling through the fire-wall. For a moment, the two of them surrounded the barbarian, who defended himself admirably, until Gimlak helped him out by stunning one with a mind-blast that sent the young giant stumbling back into the flames before falling to the ground on fire.

The other giant may yet have thumped Kahru, but Doc strode forth and shot him before a series of javelins and a big stone rained down on him. He managed to side-step the spears, but the rock hit him in the leg before it rolled under a bed.

Two young giants lay on the floor laughing in spite of the heat of the wall. One of them made an attempt to get away, but Gimlak clouded her mind and she fell back on the ground, laughing and burning.

OOC: Sorry about the delay. I really thought that I'd already posted for the giants. Apparently I moved them around on my map, made a plan, and then got distracted. I thought I was waiting on all of you, but you were waiting on me. Here goes: Gimlak killed YHG6, so Doc hexed & shot YHG2 for 16. YHG2 missed Kahru. Schlub3 got Doc for 17 with a rock, but YHG3 & YHG8 missed him. YHG7 & 9 took 21 fire from the wall & are still laughing (Gimlak would have to use Silvery Barbs). Still a couple more to go. BRB ASAP.



A suffusion of yellow
Kahru continued to roar his rage, even as a second young giant swung at him, forcing the northman to defend himself rather than complete his charge. The frenzy of battle clouded the barbarians senses but he was grateful to see his assailants fall and would need to acknowledge his companions..
OOC: Sorry about the delay. Still a couple more to go. BRB ASAP.
No need to apologise, patience is a virtue. But with all that movement a new map would be awesome :)


Through Kahru's red rage, he turned to face the young hill giant, when suddenly the heavy curtain behind him was thrown open and an extremely large, fat, and ugly giant stomped through, shirtless and carrying an enormous spiked club. The giant came straight for him, and as the northman shifted his weight to engage him, the chief stepped over a bed and kicked Kahru with such force that he was nearly thrown into the fire wall. The northman tumbled, keeping his feet under him through sheer strength and will, and the giant followed up with two mighty swings of his club. The first, Kahru avoided by throwing himself to one side, but the second knocked him hard into the nearby bed.

The two orcs yelled (in their native tongue), "Kill the chief!"

And they charged with their oversized kitchen knives. One got a small scratch in on the chief's fat calf while the other was nearly stomped on as the chief stepped around to avoid them.

Then another, enormously fat hill giant came through the curtain. It was the chief's wife, and she looked around at the carnage with eyes filled with horror and rage. She picked up a bed and threw it across the room at Kaligan and the Colonel, while yelling, ::My babies! Yoo kilded my babies!::

The bed may have been mostly a wool-and-straw mat, but it held its shape with wood and bones, and it had rocks in the base for ballast. In addition, it was twelve feet long and six feet wide. It hurtled toward Kaligan and the Colonel with great force...

OOC: Kaligan & Colonel need to roll dc16 DEX saves or take 19 bludgeoning and get knocked prone. (Saves make it 9 damage, no prone.); Nosnra did 8 & 28 to Kahru (so 18?); Orcs did 4 to Nosnra.

Kaligan took the brunt of the bed, as it crashed into him knocking him down, while the Colonel managed to avoid the worst of it.

OOC: HP adjusted. EDIT: Though Kaligan (according to my notes) had 13THP, so he's at 70/76 I think.

Duvrael smiles as he sees the pair of enormous giants enter the fray. Quickly assessing the right place to target so as to minimize the harm to his allies, the yuan ti wizard takes out the appropriate components from the pouch on his bandoleer, waves it around with intricate arm motions, then intones a phrase in Primordial.

Once more a mote of fire makes its way across the room, and just behind the chief it explodes into a ball of roaring flames.

OOC: Fireball centered on BK-50 (like in the map below). Both the chief and his wife, as well as young hg 2, need to make a DC17 Dex saving throw. Failure means they take 8D6=31 fire damage, succes means half damage.

Also maintaining concentration on the Wall of Fire.

Kahru found himself booted and clobbered by the arrival of the horrendous chieftain and what could only be its equally horrid mate. This is what the barbarian had come for, his chance to take the chieftains head

laughing he leapt up onto the bed, his great sword already in his hand as he swung at the chiefs neck

OOC: up on the bed at bh 56, using the extra height to aid his attack
Great sword: 1D20+7 = [7]+7 = 14 for damage
: 2D6+2+2 = [3, 3]+2+2 = 10

I started with the concentration check, but I need to know result of YHG2 w/r/t fireball before committing to action. If he's dead, I'll be moving my hex over.

Note- added 1hp below as Doc only took 17 damage
Concentration Check for HEX-
Concentration Save (DC10): 1D20+9 = [6]+9 = 15

Edit- also, I'm an idiot? The concentration check should be +4, not +9. Same result, but barely.

The Colonel moves up, between two of the beds, and is sure to make eye contact with the hill giant chief.

"Off with you, now," he curses. His voice is deep, like the unexpected roll of thunder, as he hopes to send the leader into the great lightning cloud in the sky.

OOC: Move to BD 55.
Action: cast Banishment (DC17 Charisma save, or be sent to a pocket dimension incapacitated for 10 rounds).

Concentration: on Banishment (round 1/10).
Spells left: 3, 0, 3, 2, 1.
HP: 23/66.


Duvrael sent a ball of fire that burst on the far wall and billowed back into the giants. The chief's wife had been lifting another bed to throw, and as she did, she managed to shield herself and her husband with it. The youth was, in turn, shielded by the bulk of his parents. All three came through the fiery blast singed, but alive.

Kahru leaped up on a smouldering bed and slashed the chief with his axe. The big giant grunted and swung his spiked club, thumping Kahru over and over.

Chief Nosnra shouted, ::Get the wizard, ya dummies!::

His wife swung the burning bed that was in her hands, first by dragging it over the orcs, then she flung it across the room toward Duvrael. It barrelled over the wizard and slammed into Gimlak.

The Colonel attempted some powerful magic, accompanied by wind and rolling thunder, but the chief blew through it with a powerful will.

OOC: Strangely, all the giants saved vs Duvrael's fireball & so took 15; Kahru did 10 to Chief who did 48 to Kahru (who's raging, so 24); Duvrael & Gimlak need to make dc16 DEX saves or take 19 bludgeoning & get knocked prone (9 on a success); The orcs took 13 but are still up! The Chief made his save to avoid being banished. Still others to go.
