Kobold Stew

Last Guy in the Airlock
Tommi is watching Orb 5 when the arrow hits, and he realizes its movement was seen. Was his? He doesn't know. The archer is right on top of him as he stands up and swings with Gutter, the small mechanical orb fluttering around and distracting the orc.

OOC: Attack 1d20+6=10. If he has advantage, it's 1d20+6=15. Damage=4d6+3=15 which I think would drop him.

If the orc is still standing, Tommi will stay close, positioning himself so the orc is between him and the other archers. (ready for opp attack as it disengages?)

If the orc falls, Tommi will move behind the tree and hide (1d20+5=20).

In either case, he has his reaction to halve any damage that hits him.


Dandin was still feeling this bow out, he'd never been properly trained in the use, but for some reason he felt capable as he took another shot, looking to finish off any wounded orcs that he could spot. One shot struck home, while the other clipped the edge of the arrow slit and flew high into the air only to land point down between some Orc's feet.

Longbow (2 rounds): 2#1d20+5 20 6 2#1d8+2 8 8
(2nd shot is a nat 1: Halfling Luck: 1d20+5 7, still sucked.)

When she returns from her turn at the arrow slit, Escella assumes Dandin didn't hear her over the sound of battle. Oh, well, she thinks. No time to get over there and ask him again.

Vairar hurries toward the arrow slit, raising his spear. Continuing the show of elves not being good with hurrying, he accidentally jabs the wall and stops himself with a whoof as the spear clatters against his armor.

Lining up properly this time, the priest thrusts at the orc visible through the arrow slit. The thrust hits and the low humming can be heard with barely perceptible shimmer surrounding it.

He shouts out something in orc.
"I see Red Wizards collected the worst rabble of all clans. Those who collected chicken bones after the warriors, but didn't run from the chickens. Couple of meatheads will not help you. No wonder you need pigs to lead you!"


Prickly Pear

Lionel got up from the floor. That spear hurt badly but he saw it in time and, with a quick reaction, he managed to dodge it. Otherwise he would be severely damaged.
Now, however, he started to wonder what he got himself into. He looked around for for the escape route but thought better about it and stayed. This time I am not going to abandon my friends! He mustered some courage and moved up to the arrow slit yet again. The sight was not pretty... lots of orcs and they were all very close. He watched one of the orcs carefully for a moment and then let the bolt fly from the crossbow.

Round 3
Bonus Action: Insightful Fighting — Wisdom (Insight) check: 1D20+7 = [18]+7 = 25
At 3rd level, you gain the ability to decipher an opponent’s tactics and develop a counter to them. As a bonus action, you make a Wisdom (Insight) check against a creature you can see that isn’t incapacitated, contested by the target’s Charisma (Deception) check. If you succeed, you can use your Sneak Attack against that target even if you don't have advantage on the attack roll, but not if you have disadvantage on it.
This benefit lasts for 1 minute or until you successfully use this feature against a different target.

Action: Light crossbow attack and damage: 1D20+7 = [19]+7 = 26
1D8+4 = [2]+4 = 6
and Sneak attack: 3D6 = [2, 4, 3] = 9, if applicable.

In the previous round, Lionel used Uncanny Dodge as a reaction so that damaged was only half (5)
Lionel AC1416 HP 3338/43 HD 5/5 PP14 (Btw, Lionels AC is 16, not 14)


I plan on living forever. Or die trying.
TL; DR: auroch rider takes 13 damage; Ogre takes 10

Sargeant Ryallan keeps shooting as deadly as ever and the orc he target bristles almost as much as the boar it rides.

The elves finally hit their stride, and one of the ogres coming in got a couple of good hits compounding the wounds made by the ballista and others.



Angis Honack
Floshin Estates/Main Gate roof
Round 3

These orcs were fast. They were already rushing the guard towers. But Angis remained focused on the ogres. They would be the greater danger to the gates. So he let another large crossbow bolt fly from his mounted crossbow. The bolt seemed to have been poorly fashioned, however, and it wobbled in flight, striking a glancing blow on the ogre.

When the others had passed them by, ORB5 flew out of the tree and distracted the orc that was searching for Tommi, giving the lad the perfect opportunity to jump out and slash with gutter. The orc archer fell at Tommi's feet, gurgling and spitting blood.

Arrows and javelins continued to strike at the walls as the defenders there took turns at the arrow-loops as the horde came on. The ogre stumbled after being struck by one of Angis' bolts, and fell to Escella's eldritch blast. As if in retaliation, Angis and Escella were both struck by arrows. The elf guards put a few arrows of their own into the ogress. As she arrived at the wall, she reached up and pulled herself onto the roof, knocking off roof-tiles as she clambered toward Angis while kicking at his covering hale-bale as she tried to reach his position.

Sgt. Ryallan struck the auroch rider, but a one-eyed shaman was there, who blessed the rider with healing. The experienced elf guard had to move away from the arrow-loop, both to give Viarar room to thrust his spear, but also because he was battered by javelins. Lionel had managed to avoid the worst of the arrows and javelins, while striking a charging orc dead with his quarrel, but his partnering elf guard was staggered by an arrow.

When the charging orcs arrived at the gatehouse wall, the first orc to arrive was struck dead by Dandin's arrow as he tried to climb up the side of the north tower. Several orcs, including the larger orogs carried picks and they began to hack away at the arrow loops, attempting to make them wide enough for an orc to find entry. The orogs were just tall enough to attempt to pick away at the lower edge of the arrow loops on the two taller towers, while four orcs took turns taking chunks of stone out of the edges of the openings on either side of the door.

Suddenly, the auroch lowered its head and charged; slamming its horns into the solidly reinforced door. At the same moment, the rider thrust out a fiendish-looking pike. The bull had little effect on the small door and the beast staggered back, but the door buckled under the force of the powerful pike-thrust. The sound was incredibly loud in the tight space in front of the door and it left the defenders there with ringing ears. For now the door held, but it would not hold for long.
