(IC) Against the Giants PBP Group 2


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.


the magical equivalent to the number zero
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.

A suffusion of yellow
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.
