Triessa, grim-faced, pulled a small handful of crystals from one of the pouches affixed to her belt. With a sweep of her arm through the air she hurled them up in an arc and shouted, "Forzare!"

The crystals lit up from within, and suddenly clumped together in three wicked-sharp looking jags of pure light that whickered out at blinding speed at the goblins!

(Magic Missile, using all three actions. Targeting the three most wounded goblins she can see. [roll0], [roll1], and [roll2] damage)

Bucky misses with his bite but his claws eviscerate the goblin at N24 with a critical hit.
The goblin at L25 shakes off most of the effect of Bixby's electric arc.
Elkhorn swings his ax at the goblin in K23 and brings it to near death. He misses his attack on the other goblin.
Triessa kills the two damaged goblins (at L25 and K23) and wounds the last goblin (at J22).
Coralin does...


Coralin raises his shield spell, and yells “Charge!”, swinging at the goblin (J22)

OOC: Action 1: Raise Shield Spell
Action 2: Inspire Courage
Action 3: Attack. [roll0]
Damage: [roll1]

GM: you aren't near the goblin. Action 2 needs to be Stride to M23, not inspire courage. Action 3 turns out to be a crit so you smear the goblin. So combat is over.

As the last goblin falls, silence is mostly restored in the cavern. (Refer to the map as you continue to explore.)

Triessa dusts her hands off to keep them from shaking and says with forced briskness, "Well. There's our adventure. Is everyone all right?"

If that spell hadn't worked...

She was painfully aware that she didn't have another spell like that ready to go. The next fight, she'd have her frost rays and crossbow. Hopefully it would be enough.


Coralin’s Heart was racing, his eyes wide as the goblins came at them, slashing and cutting. He screamed, either in defiance or fear he didn’t know (perhaps a little of both) and leapt at the goblins, slashing with his sword.

Through sheer luck, it slipped right through the goblin’s defenses and hit square on its neck, slicing right through and sending its head flying. The goblin’s body stood there for a moment before collapsing.

Coralin stood there, eyes wide, breathing heavy as the cavern went quiet. He’d done it. He’d...

He moved to the side of the cavern and retched on the ground.

Bixby searches the bodies quickly then turns to the others.

"We be needings to move. The fightin' may being alertin' the others."

Bixby then moves up towards the area the goblins had been hiding. He keeps his eyes open for danger.

At the north end of the chamber and vaguely humanoid "statue" seems to be under construction. Made from refuse and stray bits of wood and stone, the statue topples over as you approach. Additional [-]materials[/-] refuse is strewn about the area. The goblins were probably making the "statue" when you arrived.

The short battle at an end, Elkhorn heads toward the north to see what is there.

Triessa goes over to the statue to check it out, glancing around as she goes. It seems quiet now, but goblins can be sneaky.

Even so, building a statue seems like unusual behavior to her. What was the significance of this thing?


As the group investigated, they heard footsteps - human-sounding ones - from the way they came. After a tense moment, a human - boy, maybe? A very young man - poked his head around the corner.

Those who'd paid attention had noticed him from the table, where he'd held back and quietly just listened. But he seemed a good deal more sociable now, as he rounded the corner, slightly rusty chainmail protecting his body and a well-worn greatsword on his back. He waved, enthusiastically.


"Hello! Hello there. Sorry I'm late, there was a - thing - with the - sorry I'm late." He made a yeesh face at the bodies on the floor. "Wish I could have been here, looks like the locals aren't friendly. We haven't met yet! I'm Alan Oake." He shook everyone's hand - insisting on it - then, pleasantries aside, he drew his sword and stayed on guard while the investigation took place.

Bixby shakes Alan's hand and shrugs.

"They be not liking intruders."

Bixby searches the goblins. He then returns to the group.

"There be four other passages. Which do we be taking?"


Alan gets an "oh, you're asking me" expression on his face, and has a quick look around. "Well, perhaps we could tackle them clockwise?" He waves towards the one immediately to the south.

Triessa shrugs. "It's as good a plan as any. Lets have whoever's lightest on their feet scout ahead a bit, and we'll back them up."
