Been working on round 4, but I keep getting interrupted with phone calls and tending to the dog

Am trying to get this done and posted before I go to sleep!

Skeleton Pirates from the West continued their march towards the Seekers until each was confronted with one or more opponents, swinging their cutlasses to claim their lives!

(W1) and (W2) attacked Crow from his right side and face-to-face respectively! Fortunately for the Ranger, each blade narrowly missed him!

Amur was surprised that the skeleton (W3) facing him failed to bring its cutlass to bear upon his exposed body! Could that have been a glint of recognition somewhere within that gruesome skull glaring at him? Perhaps the Eye Patch would provide 'Safe Passage!'

Fortunately for the self wounded Shaman Tohmas the skeletons (W4) and (W5) that had positioned themselves between the Rogue and himself, plus next to his left side respectively, also seemed to be enthralled by his Toothless Dragon Eye Patch, unable to bring their cutlasses to bear against the Shaman!

(W6) and (W7) were now confronting Willem on his right side and face-to-face, menacing him with their cutlasses, as they attempted to slay him!

The blade from (W6) whistled through the air, a few inches from his chest, but the blade from (W7) bit into his studded leather armor, without damaging his upper torso! [-0 Hit Points & -1 Armor Hit Points]

Vincent the Novice Knight was not so fortunate, as the blade from (W bit into his leather armor, the skeleton seemingly grinning at him eye-to-eye, as the cutlass made its impression in his upper body! [-3 Hit Points & -2 Armor Hit Points]

However, it was a clean miss from the blade of (W9) that chose to target his left shoulder, rather than the right shoulder of the Cleric to its immedate right.

Bartimeous still had to face 3 attacking skeletons, as (W10) that was facing him almost nose-to-nose swung way wide; followed by (W11) facing his left shoulder from a diagonal position, swung a bit short of its intended target; followed by (W12) on his left side that raised its cutlass to strike the Cleric, but made a clumsy, fumbling attempt to slash him with its blade, but seemed unable to hold its weapon aloft, as gravity pulled his sword arm back down to its side!

(W13) split off on its own, drawn to the wounded Paladin Jaufre, seeking to strike him on his right shoulder, from a diagonal position!

Cedrus had shown mercy this day, as the blade failed to come even close to the Paladin!

Meanwhile, the skeletons (W14) and (W15) still were unable to bring their arms to bear against the Gnome Bard Mylos, nor did they attempt to move away from him!

The same held true for (S1) and (S2) that could not attack the Gnome Bard; as was the case with (S11) and (S12) menacing Elyra; along with (S13) standing in front of Areldor, unable to strike the seemingly vulnerable Illusionist with its upraised cutlass!

(S14) and (S15) had no such restraint against the Paladin Jaufre, as they swung their deadly cutlasses, (S14) cleaving only air with its blade!

The Paladin winced with pain as the familiar bite of the cutlass blade brandished by (S15) bit its way through his leather armor, drawing blood once again! [-3 Hit Points & -2 Armor Hit Points]

Jaufre winced with pain as he instinctively struck back with his Short Sword in response to his tormenter!

His first swing proved more than the skeleton could bear, as it disintegrated into a pile of dust and bone splinters, unable to bleed the Paladin ever again!

Without a pause, he swung his blade in a circular arc towards (S14), connecting with a vicious slash, causing the skeleton to wobble and bend its knees, but it refused to yield to the blow of the blade!

Areldor swung his Club again, nearly drunk with the thrill of battle, as he brought it to bear against the skeleton (W13) that had joined the battle against the beleaguered Paladin!

His Club bashed through its target like a bull in a china shop, as his foe dissipated into a cloud of dust and tiny pile of bone splinters!

His momentum spun him towards the last immediate threat to the Paladin, obliterating the skeleton with a blow to its ribcage, resulting in another cloud of dust and even tinier pile of bone splinters!

Then the Illusionist swung his Club towards his own immediate threat (S13) that still was unable to attack him, nor did it seem to try to avoid the oncoming blow!

Nor did it have to, because the Club missed its mark by a wide margin, before missing again by a somewhat narrower margin!

Elyra gripped her twin Short Sword blades with renewed vigor, slicing at (S12) and missing wide with her primary hand, but managing to weakly connect against a left leg bone with her off handed swipe!

Undaunted, she lashed out again with her provocative 'Dagger Dance', narrowly missing with her primary hand weapon and again missing by a slightly larger margin with her off hand blade!

Mylos meanwhile, had his own Gnome variation of a Dagger Dance with his Twin Daggers!

He did not appreciate being crowded in by hostile skeletons, even if his Eye Patch seemed to be holding them at bay!

So the Gnome Bard chose to clear a path of retreat for himself, in case the unnatural effect somehow wore off, as suddenly as it had taken effect on the advancing skeletons!

His first right handed swipe at the previously wounded skeleton (W14) directly behind him went way wide of its mark, while his off hand swipe was even more off target, but as he swung around for a more determined sweep, the Gnome was rewarded with a positive slice of the kneecaps, resulting in the now customary cloud of dust, followed by a tiny pile of bone splinters!

Almost as an afterthought, he swept his final off hand slice towards the shin of the skeleton (W15) that threatened his right side, also leaving this previously wounded foe a mere small cloud of dust and tiny pile of bone splinters, no longer a threat to any living being!

Bartimeous met his foe (W10) head on, swinging his blessed War Hammer at its ribcage, but missing his target by several inches!

Vincent made a quick decision to make some room for the Cleric to have more space to maneuver against their foes, taking his first swing against the skeleton (W9) that stood between the two Seekers!

Mars must have guided his sword arm, as the blade splintered the skull, before his foe disappeared in a cloud of dust and tiny fragments of bone splinters!

Then he swung his blade at the skeleton (W directly in front of him, slicing it across the front of its ribcage, with the same result of dust and bone splinters!

Swinging his blade towards the skeleton (W7) that was confronting his new found friend Willem, the Knight missed by several inches, before dispatching the undead with a slice to its neck, producing another cloud of dust and tiny pile of bone splinters!

That left Willem only the skeleton (W6) to his immediate right. The first sweep of his Broadsword severed the head from the body, before the skeleton evaporated in a cloud of dust and tiny pile of bone splinters!

He followed through with his swing, but there were no more Skeleton Pirates within reach of his blade!

Tohmas must have been hurting more than he realized, or perhaps he was just subconsciously leery of wounding himself again with his own weapon? Whatever the case, the Shaman barely missed the skeleton (W4) that was next to Amur, while his second swing missed by a greater margin!

Amur was persistently continuing his attack with his Sling Stones, as he hurled one directly in front of him at close range against the skeleton (W3) that stood almost motionless before him!

The stone bounced off its skull, but did not fall, so Amur slang a second stone, hitting its mark in almost the same place, but still the skeleton stood defiantly!

The third stone obliterated the skeleton in a cloud of dust and tiny pile of bone splinters, no longer standing defiantly against the Rogue!

In another swift motion, he slang a fourth stone against the skeleton (W4) that the Shaman had tried to eliminate without success, bouncing it off its skull, merely causing the skeleton to sway unsteadily!

Crow drove the pommel of 'Twinkle Twinkle' into the chest of the skeleton (W2) that seemed to snarl at the Ranger, before it burst into a cloud of dust and tiny pile of bone splinters!

Then he swung the pommel of 'Little Star' into the ribcage of the skeleton (W1) that had threatened him on his right side, satisfied that it too disappeared before his eyes in a cloud of dust and tiny pile of bone splinters, unable to rise again!

Note from the Castle Keeper:

Seekers have the first Initiative for the fourth round of combat against the Skeletons!

For this first encounter I had asked everyone to state their combat intentions by Wednesday, so I would be able to have this done by the weekend, due to the amount of skeletons and number of Players that I am dealing with in this encounter!

This will not be the Norm for future encounters, but I decided it was necessary to do it this way right out of the gate, so we could get on with the adventure and not get bogged down battling Skeleton Pirates for the next two or three weeks!

Mylos closed the gap against his targeted skeleton (S4) with his double Daggers ready to test their blades against bones!

His primary right handed weapon found its mark as it slashed above the left knee cap, staggering the Skeleton Pirate, before his off handed slash above the right knee cap reduced the undead to a pile of dust and bone splinters!

Elated, the Gnome Bard targeted the adjacent skeleton (S3) and was thrilled as the luck of Amber his deity was shining favorably upon him, as the skeleton suffered a vicious slash below its right knee that left it a pile of dust and bone splinters, unable to harm another living being!

However, in his excitement, the inexperienced Gnome missed wide with his off handed swipe at the other adjacent skeleton (S5).

Jaufre was thankful that some of his comrades had joined the attack against the skeleton invasion from the south, as he swung his short sword at the skeleton (S10) that was eerily leering at the Paladin.

Fearlessly leaping forward as his blade reduced his foe to a pile of dust and bone splinters, the Paladin held his wooden shield high, as he swung his weapon a second time, splitting the skull of the targeted skeleton (S20) with a critical hit, as it burst into a pile of dust and bone splinters!

Areldor was too busy focusing on his next target to realize how the others were faring, as he stepped forward and swung his Club at another skeleton (S1 that was immediately pulverized into a pile of dust and bone splinters!

The enthusiastic Illusionist swung his Club towards the skeleton (S19) closest to Jaufre, but missed way wide, the momentum of his intended blow causing him to turn a full circle that must have caused Minerva to smile, as his Club crushed its ribcage, reducing it to a pile of dust and bone splinters!

With a grunt of triumph, the Illusionist managed to flow with the momentum of the Club, somehow by the aid of Minerva no doubt, guiding it to smash the chest of the other adjacent skeleton (S17) as it evaporated in a cloud of dust and bone splinters!

Elyra stepped forward to continue her dance with her twin blades, slashing at the frontline skeleton (S5) diagonal to Mylos, her primary blade leaving its tell tale mark across its right ribcage!

Her off hand slash was much more vicious, connecting with its back, as it disintegrated into a pile of dust and bone splinters!

She continued her deadly 'Dagger Dance' with her twin Short Sword blades, as her primary weapon slashed across the jaw of the nearest back row skeleton (S16), causing it to wobble precariously; while her weak, but effective, off handed slash made just enough contact with its neck to reduce the undead foe to a pile of dust and bone splinters, unable to rise again to harm any living being!

Meanwhile, further north, the self bloodied Tohmas took another determined swing with his blessed quarterstaff against the slightly damaged skeleton (E4); however, the Shaman seemed to be worse than a rookie fighter, as the staff slipped, hitting him on the forearm, causing his strength to slip away in small droplets of blood (-1HP).

Although the Shaman was staggering a bit from his own self inflicted wounds, he did somehow manage to swing his blessed quarterstaff in a weakly executed move, catching his foe under the left armpit, resulting in a pile of dust and bone splinters, courtesy of Atira blessing his weapon with greater power to dispatch his undead foe!

Crow moved himself into position to protect his stricken friend, savagely bludgeoning the nearest skeleton (E2) into a pile of dust and bone splinters with the hilt of his Long Sword 'Twinkle Twinkle'; while his attempt against the adjacent skeleton (E1) with his Short Sword 'Little Star' was unsuccessful by a wide margin.

Undaunted, the Elf Ranger drove the hilt of 'Twinkle Twinkle' into the forehead of the menacing skeleton, which burst into a pile of dust and bone splinters, like so many of its now fallen brethren!

Amur decided to take aim against the lone skeleton (E6) southeast of his position, connecting with his first shot that made the lone foe wobble precariously, before his second shot reduced the skeleton to a pile of dust and bone splinters!

Quickly the Rogue tried to launch his third stone against the advancing line of Skeleton Pirates approaching from the west, but his stone fell far short of its intended target (W3); however, he slang a fourth stone that fell even much shorter!

Almost infuriated that he no longer had any nearby targets to demolish, Bartimeous moved 10 feet to the west, pausing to focus his anger, while waiting for the approaching Skeleton Pirates to draw within striking distance!

Willem decided to employ the same tactic, while Vincent followed suit at his side, each moving 10 feet west, waiting for the Skeleton Pirates to get close enough to battle!

West Skeleton Pirates marched straight ahead another 30 feet, except for the (W14) that stopped behind Mylos and the (W15) that stopped next to the Gnome Bard's side!

South Skeleton Pirates (S2) marched 10 feet to the east, stopping in front of Mylos, while (S1) followed behind, stopping within striking distance of the Gnome Bard.

(S15) marched 25 feet east to stand in front of Jaufre; (S14) also marched 25 feet east to be in striking distance of both Jaufre and Areldor; (S13) marched 25 feet east to stand in front of Areldor; (S12) marched 25 feet east to be in striking distance of both Areldor and Elyra; while (S11) marched 25 feet east to stand in front of Elyra.

As the Skeleton Pirates raised their cutlasses to simultaneously attack Mylos, Elyra, Areldor and Jaufre; a spark of recognition seemed to register somewhere within the undead foes!

Fortunately for Areldor, Elyra and Mylos; the decision to wear their Eye Patches had proven to be a wise choice, for as the skeletons raised their cutlasses to strike their intended targets, the 'sight' of the Toothless Dragon insignia gave them pause, for they were unable to strike with their weapons!

On the other hand, Jaufre was not wearing his Eye Patch, making him a living target as the cutlasses from (S15) and (S14) sought to bleed his living flesh this day!

Jaufre felt the impact of the blade from (S15) slashing into his Leather Armor, feeling the pain of the blow weakening his stamina! [-3 Hit Points & -2 Armor Hit Points]

Fortunately for the Paladin of Cedrus, although the blade from (S14) also found its mark against his chest, the force of the slash was too weak to penetrate his leather armor! [-0 Hit Points & -1 Armor Hit Points]

Note from the Castle Keeper:

Skeletons have the first Initiative for the third round of combat against the Seekers!

Combat Turn 1 Round 1

"Waves of bones with arms of rust,
Waves of bones to kill the just.
Stand your ground and be ye brave
Tis your friends you save from the grave"

Bones are rattling as bones must
Send them back to join the dust

Heros rise and heros fall, today we are heros all.
When this eve we light our fire, none shall lay upon a pyre.
Stand with me, we shall not falter,
Tomorrow lay tribute on the alter.

Bones are rattling as bones must
Send them back to join the dust"


Although somewhat demoralized that he had failed to turn any of the undead from the south, Jaufre took renewed courage as the inspired words from the lady Bard compelled him to move 15 feet forward, positioning himself between the last Skeleton Pirate on the east (14) and the last one on the end of the southern advance (10, diagonally next to 9).

Positioning himself with his medium wooden shield to guard against an attack from the southern line, he raised his left arm, holding his short sword high in the air, before bringing it down upon the left shoulder near the neck of the undead skeleton at the end of the eastern line.

His foe wobbled momentarily, before crumpling into a pile of dust and bone splinters, no longer animated by some dark magic.

Elated by his momentary triumph, the Paladin whirled and took a swing at the skeleton advancing from the end of the southern line, but for whatever reason, be it the zealousness or hurried swing of inexperience, his blade missed wide of its intended target.

Mylos the Gnome Bard gave out a shout to put on the Eye Patches, after he had put away his Light Cross Bow and drawn his two Daggers!

The arrows fight was not as smooth as Tohmas would have liked but it hit home. The skeleton rocked as the arrow pierced its skull, but it didn’t fall. The Shaman thought his arrow would do more.

Knowing that his arrow had not the effect he had wish he put the bow away and drew his staff to fend off the skeleton to the northeast side. He wished the party had passed safe….. passed safe… safe passage….as a bards song rang out he saw Elyra, she still had her eye patch on… safe passage…….then he heard Mylos shout out to use the eye patch. Thinking it is a sign they think the same, Tohmas draws the patch over his eye. As he approaches the line of skeletons to the east he utter the words to ask Altira to bless his quarterstaff and add two his charisma skills to the staff.


Tohmas took heed to the Gnome Bard's words, as he made a beeline to the northeasterly positioning that placed him in front of the third skeleton on the eastern line.

In his inexperienced haste, the Shaman made a clumsy fumbled swing with his quarterstaff that opened a small bleeder on his shin (-2 HP) that must have spoiled his concentration for a second attempt that did not come close to his quarry!

Well this is not good thought Crow as he first saw the horde of Undead headed the groups way. Of all the things to face Undead were more of a problem then most. With only swords to fight with, the sharp edges not made for destroying Undead, his ability at doing damage to them would be reduced.

Thinking quickly he drew both his longsword ‘Twinkle Twinkle’ and his shortsword ‘Little Star’ and reversed them in his gloved hands intending to use the pommels as blunt weapons. Moving quickly he yelled to Amur to follow him as he attempted to rejoin with the rest of the party in their charge to the East.


Crow covered a space of 30 feet as quickly as he could, almost slipping a time or two, but he managed to take up a position to the north, diagonally next to his friend Tohmas, with 5 feet of space between the Elf Ranger and the second skeleton on the eastern line.

Amur took heed to follow Crow, positioning himself next to Crow, right behind Tohmas, as he began flinging sling stones!

His first stone sailed harmlessly over the head of the skeleton facing Tohmas; the second hit the same skeleton in the skull; the third split its skull into a pile of dust and bone splinters, unable to rise again; while the fourth stone hit the second skeleton, causing it to wobble back and forth.

Bartimeous boldy and arrogantly marched ten feet forward, but his inexperience would have narrowly missed his foe, had it not been for his blessed War Hammer from his dwarven deity Toft, who must have been smiling with favor upon the Human Cleric this day, because his seemingly anemic swing resulted in the skeleton (E10) disintegrating into dust and bone splinters!

Willem moved 5 feet northeasterly and took a mighty two-handed swing with his Broadsword at a menacing skeleton (E7) with all the inexperienced enthusiasm he could muster, but he missed by several inches.

Undaunted, the Fighter took another mighty swing, but made an inexperienced clumsy fumbly swing, that fortunately did not injure himself, or anyone else!

Taking another slice with his Broadsword, the Fighter finally managed to connect with his specialized weapon, barely obliterating his foe!

Then with one final spinning swing of his mighty Broadsword, the Fighter failed to hit the adjacent skeleton (E6).

Vincent had closely followed the lead of his new found friend Willem, matching him almost stride for stride, as he boldly moved alongside his friend to confront the skeleton (E with his Short Sword.

Mars must have taken delight in the inexperienced enthusiasm of his devoted Knight, as the Short Sword slashed through the ribcage of his undead foe, reducing his target to a pile of dust and bone splinters that were unable to stalk any more living beings!

Triumphantly swinging his Short Sword at his adjacent foe (E9), the blade succeeded in eliminating its second target in like manner!

Ready to swing his weapon again and again, the Knight had no more nearby foes to face!

Areldor listened and looked as the Seekers tried to formulate a plan against the undead foe. It seemed to him that everyone had some idea what to do and he none. Knowing that he was without armor and that his spells were useless, he had to fall back on the weapons training. Holding his black ash club as Garlin instructed, he steadies his nerves and prepared for what was to come. “Goddess Minerva, grant us understanding in how we are to face our foe. “ Areldor said aloud hoping that the goddess heard and would assist him and his companions.

Someone cried out put on the eye patches. “Eye patches!” was the illusionist thought “Where is that eye patch!” He remembers it was in his bag and he quickly shoved his right hand into his bag and with a shock to his hand it was not found only his spell book. Panic was about to overcome him, then he glanced over to Elyra and remembered just before the alarm of the pirates he and the bard were have a pleasant but silly conversation, then his hand reached up to his forehead and he felt the eye patch. “Safe passage” was the words the Captain used when they were handed out. The words gave the illusionist peace, and a new confidence. Areldor whispered “Thank you Goddess Minerva” believing that his prayer was answered he prepared himself to be ready for what was to unfold.


Minerva must have somehow possessed, or at least motivated Areldor to boldly move 15 feet to confront the skeletons from the south, as he had seen Jaufre seeming fearlessly do!

He swung his Club with all the might and courage that he could muster, but the Illusionist seemed to be a mere illusion himself, as his weapon harmlessly swept past his foe (S.

But as his Club turned him around in a circle, it connected with the chest of the skeleton, reducing it to a pile of dust and bone splinters!

Then his momentum caused the inexperienced Illusionist to miss the adjacent skeleton (S9), but the determined Half Elf somehow guided his Club, perhaps with the aid of his deity Minerva, into the ribcage of the same skeleton (S9), also reducing it to a pile of dust and harmless bone splinters!

Elyra took off after Areldor, covering 20 feet with ease, as she brandished her twin Short Swords, positioning herself with a 5 foot space between the lady Bard and the Illusionist, to help stem the tide against the southern Skeleton Pirates!

She swung and missed with her primary left handed short sword, but as she turned she caught the skeleton (S6) on the left leg with her other sword, but it only shuddered a bit.

However, her next primary swing caused the skeleton to crumple in a pile of dust and bone splinters, while her second off handed swing reduced the adjacent skeleton (S7) nearest Areldor to suffer the same fate, unable to cause any more harm to a living being.

Mylos being a Gnome, was only able to move 20 feet, positioning himself just out of reach of being able to use his Daggers against the southern line of skeletons.

I have decided to Post the first 2 rounds of Combat, before I proceed any further!

That way you will really have some suspense!

I would really prefer no 'In Game' posting until this episode with the Skeleton Pirates has run its course!

Thank You

Guess it may be fortunate for you all that I woke up too late to go with the tornado relief work group!

Depending upon what develops today, I will post at least the first 3 rounds (have only configured the first two!)so I will see what happens today!

From the way the 'Hunting for Ham' went, it is obvious that my Barbarian is not very stealthy!

She could either fire some arrows, but maybe would be better served if she made her way to the captives and if any goblins draw near she could go berserker on them with her two silver battle axes!

Any thoughts ???

There are Plenty of Menacing Skeletons to Battle!

I only mentioned that No Seekers lost their lives!

Am just now plodding along with Combat Turn 1 round 2 (there are 6 rounds per Combat Turn, so we still have a Long Way to Go!)

Even if Bart were inclined to use the Sound Burst Spell, it would end up stunning everyone in a 20 foot diameter for one round, but he is intent on clobbering Skeleton Pirates with One Swing of his +1 War Hammer!

Subject: Bump Armor Hit Points


I have edited my previous post to include the Armor Hit Points that are protecting you!

These will let you know how your Armor is holding up when hit by Weapons!

At some point your Armor will either have to be repaired or replaced, because unlike Hit Points for your Character, that can be restored by Cure Light Wounds etc, the Armor must be either repaired or replaced sometime during the adventure, all the more reason to return to the Toothless Dragon Tavern once you finally leave Tagea!

Armor Hit Points
Amur 'Nimblefingers' of the Red Buttons [Half Elf of Elf Lineage/Rogue] 20/20
Tohmas Goodwood [Human/Druid] 20/20
Willem Bariendul [Human/Fighter] 30/30
Maithias Crowmarhte aka Crow [Elf/Ranger] 30/30
Vincent Wysman [Human/Knight] 20/20
Bartimeous Dathier [Human/Cleric] 30/30
Mylos Goldspinner [Gnome/Bard] 30/30
Jaufre Vanvoie [Human/Paladin] 20/20
Elyra Nightshade [Elf/Bard] 30/30
Areldor Glanolwath [Half Elf of Human Lineage/Illusionist] None/None
