Game Update #36 sequence (file #263)
Admin Notes: None.
From Pyan: [Re: Actions]
Pyan will go shopping for new armor. He is tempted by the (to
him)exotic armors but decides to stick to what he is use to and
buys Quilted armor.
GM: Ack. Done. 8 CC. You have around 6 Gold so if you want to
buy other stuff let me know.
From Wout: [Re: Helping Tobie]
Go ahead and post on the general pnp list as well if
you like. Hopfuly 2016 will be a better year for you.
GM: Ack. Yeah I've suggested some ways to get better coverage.
Some Podcasters on Twitch do charity all the time. As
well as some good Facebook pages. I hope it goes well
for all of us but especially Jill.
From David: [Re: Actions]
I will be unavailable Saturday and Sunday while I travel for
work. I will only have limited access (mornings and late
evenings) to email while I am gone...for three months.
Assuming that Kiet's horse has his reins wrapped around
something (even his picket stake), Kiet goes after his javelins
first. "Don't kill them all, but I'm going after the bowmen
first!" Kiet then activates his boots for speed and runs
between Where Unali and Kell are currently on the map, and
travel northwest about 90', then turn southwest toward
northernmost bowman and ready javelin by tapping gem twice
for Fatal Spear. Aim for his horse. If any of the swordsmen
attempt to cut me off, his horse becomes the target of the
javelin and I move to stay out of his reach, and continue
That should take at least three phases....?
Kiet will continue toward the second bowman, activating his
second javelin and aim for the man this time. Then draw tulwar
and head for any live bowmen....kill the first, capture one
alive. Cast abandon on him if necessary.
Use rings in emergency only.
GM: Ack. Have fun on your trip. Hopefully a certain country
that sounds like Tran won't do much to you there. But if
so good luck! :) BTW Goblin sword has abandon on it but
would need to carry it in hand and javelins so that's fine.
From Kiet: [Re: Actions]
Oh, yeah...dodge and weave all the way...
GM: Ack. Darn! I thought you were just playing rodeo clown. :)
From Z'leyra: [Re: Actions]
Z'leyra says "Apparently." Then yells "Prepare to fight!" She
stands and readies her Greatsword. Then triggers her boots
Speed enchantment. She will melee aggressively any enemies
that come close to the party, let the others deal with the
archers for now. [She will also try to throw off the horsemen
by telling their horses to buck them off when she fights the
[Aratad Province - Hills]
[Decalis 19th, 1634TH]
[Time: 12:26:00 pm]
Kiet stares at the approaching riders so bold to do this in
broad daylight. "Don't kill them all, but I'm going after the
Z'leyra hears Kell's words and nods, "Apparently." Then yells
"Prepare to fight!" Z'leyra moves to her horse and draws her
great sword from the sword sheath.
Unali charges her horse and mounts up drawing her magical dagger.
Pyan heads to his horse and gets his bow and prepares an arrow
from his quiver on his back.
[Time: 12:26:03 pm]
The Hill archers fire their bows at Pyan and Arawn. But both
arrows fly and miss impacting on the ground a few feet from
Pyan fires back at HIllsman #2 with his bow. But his own
arrow firing at long range goes astray and he also misses.
Z'leyra draws her great sword and turns toward the men
on horses and runs straight for them.
Kiet grabs his javelins and runs west between Unali on her
horse and Kell. He turns north west and moves a bit in
that direction and turns south east. This actually make
shim about 15 feet ahead of Z'leyra. But due to being behind
the others he did not fire his javelins yet or risk hitting
the others. But now he is prepared to do so.
Unali kicks her horse into gear moving west ending up about
8 feet in front of Z'leyra and 5 feet behind Kiet.
Startled by the yelling Corona wakes up and flies skyward
moving westward trying to figure out what is going on.
Fremea takes to the sky and flies toward the west as well
drawing a arrow and preparing it. Finally she can do some
aerial combat for a change.
The Hills folk are clearly surprised and shocked by the
4 people rushing toward them. Why would two of them
RUN to them and one odd flying thing toward them? Are
these folks mad? The 5 men seem startled but undaunted
by the surprise move for only second. The 3 riders move
eastward. Rider #1 ends up about 5 feet from Kiet.
At the same time Rider #3 moves straight for Z'leyra.
The rider moves his horse just a second quick enough and
thrusts at Z'leyra's right upper chest piercing her magical
chainmail doing 5 points of damage.
Rider #5 moves east and ends up about 8 feet west of
The Archers know they need to get closer to get better
shots but these people are moving fast.
Rider #2 follows Rider #5 using him as a possible
shield and ends up about 8 feet behind him. But now
this archer is only 20 feet due south of Kiet.
Rider #4 moves at the same time as #2 and ends up
about 4 feet behind #2 again due south of Kiet.
Arawn drawing up Sword and Shield move westward running
and dodging a bit.
Kell looks back and sees only Pyan left. He decides
the hunter will need protection. He draws up his
shield and holds his spear. "Behind me and fire at
them if possible."
Pyan comes a few feet closer and grabs another arrow.
[Time: 12:26:06 pm]
Kiet sees the archers move into perfect position. But
this one rider only feet to his right could hit him any
second. He only has a split second to decide. So he
decides on both. He throws his javelin straight for the
nearest archer, Rider #2 and hits his horse as planned.
The horse lurches in mid stride and falls forward dead
before his head hits tits the ground. The archer goes
flying forward flailing his arms wildly. He goes shoulder
first into the ground causing his quiver, sword and bow
to go flying in various directions. But upon impact the
man takes 6 points of damaged and is stunned.
Fremea aims her own bow at Rider #5 The arrow flies
the 20 feet and hits the man right in his mouth and
slices into the back of his throat. The man goes flying
backward from the head shot dead before he hits the ground.
Pyan fires on the second archer, Rider #4 and hits the
man in the left arm doing 8 points of damage taking ouu
The second archer still on his horse feels his left arm
broken and gone so tosses his bow aside and draws his
Kiet raises his left hand and aims at Rider #1 setting off
the pinky ring. The rider who is still moving eastward only
8 or so feet away suddenly bursts into flame. The man is
tossed to the ground and rolls toward Kiet dead before he
hits the ground at 30 points of damage.
Z'leyra only 2 feet from Rider #3 uses both hands to
swing the sword upwards toward the rider but he dodges
just in time and the blade fails to hit.
Corona finally realizes what is going on and circles
the group about to act when he finds a target.
Unali sees the archers either down dazed or unable to
use their bows so moves the few feet toward Rider #3
attacking Z'leyra. Drawing both daggers she slices toward
the man who is now at equal height of her. The magical
and regular dagger hits the man and does deadly damage
many times over killing the man.
The last Hillsman on his horse suddenly sees his friend
all slain. His own arm broken he decides to turn and flee
back west toward the nearest hill hoping to escape.
Arawn runs forward and finds the first archer on the
ground dazed and ensures he will not be moving. He places
his sword at the man's chest.
Kell grins and waves Pyan forward and runs westward.
GM: Ok. That was a fast combat. :) The archer is almost
dead but dazed but pretty much captured unless you
guys decide to finish him off. What to do with the
escaping Rider? He is wounded but has some distance
away from you guys. He is at least 70 feet or so
away from Kiet (long range for Javelin). Even if
Corona could try to chase him down but those on foot
might not be able to catch up to him even with the
speed boots as the movement order dictates. But
GM: Fremea - Will assume you chase the rider and fire on him.
Kiet - Next phase you move toward and could get one
swipe before he moves away. If you throw now your
at Long range and you can't move so you can take
the chance to throw and not catch up later or catch
up and try to swipe at him before he moves?
Unali - Will assume you try to catch him on your horse.
the escaping Rider.
Pyan - Fleeing Rider is about 160 feet or so away
I will assume you fire if able.
Z'leyra - Same as Kiet can chase and risk a swipe.
What to with the almost dead archer? Yelling
at horses don't seem to do anything maybe they
don't understand or not their masters?
GM: Spider Poison - Teleport was probably the best option
as Arawn gave but he was tapped out so since no
one took it up too late. Poison not collected.
Sorry. Maybe next time. Deadline over. :<
GM: Mana - I've updated mana up to this point all but Fremea
are well almost full. Fremea is around 91% only
due to IBT spells cast recently.
GM: IBT: Updated as of Eured City (coming up)
Fremea +1 Knowledge EL
Arawn +4 R/W Salaqi EL
Pyan +10 Marentian Language EL (now fluent)
GM: Spells -
Kiet Boots speed 12:26:03 12:27:33
Z'leyra Boots speed 12:26:03 12:27:33
GM: Horse/Food : [When entering Eured - Future]
Horses - Z'leyra's #2 pack horse and Kell's horse are
not doing so well. Due to exhaustion, weather
and food limits not doing so well. If need to
replace the horse may need to do so. It might
be bad to ride. Kell will replace his horse
and buy a new one. After a month of riding this
is the result Based on the numbers for food intake
and exhaustion. The folks trained in horse can tell
it might be dangerous to ride past Eured.
Food - Food has gone to almost nothing.
Pyan, Arawn, Kiet, Kell (due to loaning others food)
and Z'leyra all have no more rations at all.
Keep this in mind when entering Eured. See the
agenda below for how long before Ticasi.
