Day 13 (35) - camping before Skalsbridge

Post  Bella on Thu Jul 12, 2012 10:55 am

The sounds of night are muted amid the freezing fog that clings to blankets, cloaks, and Varisian mustachios alike. Koya and Jo warm their hands by the fire as it is their turn at watch (turn 1). Jo strains his eyes as he cackles mindlessly as he converses with himself. As he turns his head straining his eyes to see in the fog, he thinks he spots the blood-feather raven perched atop one of the lintel posts of the bridge above the campsite, quietly watching the group. It quickly flies away into the concealing darkness as Jo spots it.

The dull silence of the cold night is suddenly broken by the scrape of wood upon the gravel bank of the river—a boat has beached just beneath the bridge—quickly followed by the splash of feet in the shallows and the oath-cries and battle-songs of Ulfen raiders!

(Jo heard them land so the group is not surprised. They are not interested in harming the caravan. They want the members of the caravan dead. Over 40 raiders swarm in. I will post the details after lunch! It will be a caravan combat.)

The camp erupts as Ulfen warriors poor into their encampment. Screams of panic from the non combatant caravan crew is drowned out by the bloodlust of the attackers.

Ameiko takes a round to shove Annie and Janie under a wagon. Kelda Oxgutter (the barbarian you rescued from the castle) rages as and starts swinging her sword at the Ulfen. Sandru does his best to flank with her.
During the battle Jo cackles helping his companions swing better. Vanthus has no room to fire a bow as there are just too many of them so he uses his spear. Kit begins to sing and later casts spells like daze and color spray if he has it. Kai draws his weapons and flanks with Vanthus when he can.
Sam swings her swords.

Lute crawls around the battle field on his hands and knees. Many ulfen are surprised as they fall back over him as they fall to the ground. Some of the drivers and cooks take that time to hit the downed men. Some of the women have their night wear pulled down as he uses their pants to occasionally help himself up.

Po, Spivey and Koya do their best to constantly cast channel energies. During one round, a driver is backed against a wagon and waves his hands in an effort to plead for his life. The ulfen warrior shows no quarter as he drives his sword through his stomach, but gets his sword stuck in the wood of the wagon. Kelda, raging behind him beheads the warrior with one swing.

A cook is disemboweled by two other warriors. The party and other caravan crew do their best to hold off the Ulfen warriors. The three healers are able to keep the rest of the non major NPC’s who succumb to the many attacks of the warriors from dying. A minute into the battle, the Ulfen numbers are dwindled to a third of what they had so they begin to break off and flee into the woods. A few of the caravan crew could swear that they occasionally felt a goose or grope from behind.

The caravan itself suffered 5 hp of damage from misses and bodies slamming into them during the frenzy of the attack. Let me know what you want to do.

Depends on how hurt we are as a group and how low on spells.

If we are in pretty good shape, we can pursue them.

If not, look for enemy survivors to interrogate. Preferably one of the leaders.

There are a few warriors down but not dead. The healers are about out of Channels but they have their other spells still. I don't remember Jo ever casting so he mostly cackled and Kit cast about 4 spells, 2 of which were lv 0.

You can probably hunt down a few of those fleeing, but not all. There were also not really any leaders per say. It was mostly a mob of vikings warriors.

If you want to question one, you will need to cure the one you are questioning first or do so in the morning. Let me know what you want to know or what else you might want to do.

Jo would tell Shalelu (and the others by association) that they came in by boat, he heard it land on the riverbank. Anyone who wants to (kelda, shalelu, etc.) could go with him in that direction. This attack was not random. He saw the devil's bird. It is marking their passage. Time must be spent to end it's life or we will be shadowed by whatever force is after the item we possess.

Jo rambles on like that as he goes with whoever down to the river, occasionally calling upon the fortune of the Endless Ones and snickering under his breath.

Kelda and Koya will go back with you. If non of the other PC's accompany you, Shalelu will go with you also so that any ambush by survivors will be less successful.

The boat is a small river knarr with the length of 52 feet and 20 sets of oars.

Painted upon it's prow in Skald is the name "Avril's Hammer."

There is nothing of interest on the boat.

"This is nicely made" says Kelda as she rubs her hand on the wood. "This cost a pretty penny" she says with a whistle. "Nothing like the heap I had."

Using Diplomacy, I question the survivors. I use Perform in place of Diplomacy.

I have a +14.

One of the vikings nods his head. He hisitates for a second and opend his mouth to speak. He then clenches his teeth in pain and starts cunvulsing. Black lines start to spread up his neck and continues onto his face. He slumps to the ground as he continues his pained convulstions until the blackness fills his eyes. His body lets out one last breath and he is finally still (and very dead).

anything else you want to do? So far all you have done is look at the ship and saw the name "avril's hammer" and then talked to a prisoner who died from something strange before he uttered a word.
