So, Tristan and Calopee receive enough healing to return them to full health.

Relos lays on hands on himself for 12hp worth of healing.

Now...the loot, parsed collectively.

In total the bodies had:
8 Masterwork Shortswords
8 Suits of Masterwork Studded Leather Armour
1 Masterwork Spiked Chain
1 Masterwork Chain Shirt
5 Throwing Axes

Do what you will.

Also a remind, I am leaving on a vacation starting Wednesday July 2nd, so I will not be able to update for roughly a week from that day.

Topic: Fortune's Favoured: Of Cupboards, Bark and Gallows...

Shortly before Midnight, Isiah’s Farm, Schell

A collective sigh seemed to escape from Fortune’s Favoured as the stress of combat faded and the sudden realisation of the last few minutes of activity reached their aching muscles. The pain of the wounds they’d suffered seemed to flare up as their adrenaline receded, and a moment of quiet reflection on the danger they’d face was broken only by a loud *crack* as a supporting timber of the shed finally gave way and the flaming structure collapsed into a pile of expended fuel. Tristan made his way about the group, dispensing his divine energies as requested as well as passing a silvery-blue infusion over his own previously fatal wounds. Relos did the same to himself, channeling the healing power of his patron into his numerous wounds. It was then that Sehanine, uninjured in the fracas, rejoined the group, a new friend in tow.

“This is Bartellus. He’s kindly offered to help clean up this mess. Such a darling man…”

The elf had a wicked smile that at the very least seemed to disturb Calopee; her magical hold over Bartellus obvious as he went about dragging the corpses of his former comrades (and brother) along the ground into a more concentrated heap. The Halfling distracted herself with some friendly banter with Malachi as the enthralled Bartellus continued his grisly work. It seemed the pair of them had accounted for more than their share of the slain this night, though the tone of their conversation was distinctly light-hearted; even a playful jab at Tristan’s once precarious state was met with a witting smirk.

The conversation lasted only a minute and Malachi’s eyes turned to the men that had assaulted him outside the shed. Their bodies had yet to have been moved by Bartellus, the light cast by the burning remains of the shed danced on their corpses in what could be construed as some grim parody of life. The light seemed to illuminate something else on the bodies, and the keen eye of the Argent Blade spotted the flicker as he made his way over. Sighing with the troubling realisation that one of the newly anointed “Heroes of Schell” was looting a dead body, Mal nevertheless turned one of his former foes over for a quick reconnoitre. The others save Relos followed his lead, with Sehanine using her magic to scour over the bodies while Bartellus did the dirty work. The half-elven Paladin abstained, taking the moment to gain some quiet reflection as he turned away from his comrades.

The men had been lightly armed, perhaps befitting their role as swift raiders in the night, and there was little of value on them besides their weapons and coinpurses. Sehanine’s magical detection located nothing of note, whatever valuable loot these men had carried surely had been left behind at wherever they made a home for themselves, having not expected much in the way of a confrontation with a simple farmer’s hut it seemed. Calopee’s thorough search of the group’s bearded leader was similarly disappointing, a few loops on his belt that had seemed primed for carrying additional items seemed recently unstrapped, and save his chain and collection of coins little of value was found.

Bartellus finished his somber task shortly after the search of the bodies was completed, and those remaining standing gathered alongside the newly formed body pile. The witching hour was fast approaching and it seemed their duty to Isiah had been more or less fulfilled. The shed had been lost, its contents save the handful of seeds Malachi carried incinerated in the blaze, but the main hut still stood unmolested, the belongings inside only briefly disturbed as the Favoured had sprung their ambush before the ransacking had properly taken place. By the group’s wishes, Isiah had travelled back to Schell proper, and it would be a few hours before he should return, though the pillar of smoke rising from the shed’s remains might send a confusing message to any who looked towards the farm house.

Bartellus walked over to the assembled Favoured, wiping the sweat from his brow casually, his face still displaying the familiar grin brought on by Sehanine’s compulsion.

”F&%kers were heavy, no wonder they were too slow to stay standing.” the man gave a disturbing laugh as he mocked his dead friends. ”Well then…what’s next?”

(OOC: Loot and whatnot to be described in the Q&A.)

Due to circumstances that I wouldn't wish on anyone, Jozan may be unable to post for a period of time. I will be NPCing Relos for the immediate future awaiting his return to availability, and best wishes go his way.

Anyway, anyone else got anything for this posting segment? I could update if that's what people feel is holding them up, but other than letting Bartellus condense the body pile and Schnozzle searching 3 corpses not a whole lot would get done there.

So here's the dilly-o hombres (and hombrettes?). The sooner the group gets a consensus decision as to their actions, I will get an update in.

Additionally, as of July 2nd I am going to be out of town for about a week or so, and will obviously be unable to post in that span because I will drunk on the sea. As in on a boat, not inebriated from salt water, well hopefully not anyway.

So with that in mind, we can try to get two updates in before next Wednesday if everything lines up wonderfully. Alternatively, we can form an interpretive hip-hop group and call ourselves "Male Order Brides". Get it...because of dudes.

Or something, I really don't know.

Subject: Second?


Harsh reality struck the man as his eyes slowly opened; he did not know where he'd come from but he was quite certain it had not been this place. His bare skin felt the grit of the dirt beneath him, and his eyes traced a path around his new surroundings. The poorly formed but rounded wall showed no signs of an exit, and it's stony hew exuded a cold that bothered him as he struggled to remember what led him to this place.

His eyes trailed down, the flickering light of the torch casting dancing shadows along the walls as the others stirred. Had there been others before? Thoughts raced through his mind. He knelt down, his fingers idly running through the dirt of the floor. Something about being connected to the earth even in such a small way kept him feeling safe.

Among the others, a small Kobold with earthy toned skin and piercing eyes that gave the man pause was the first to rise. It surveyed the room as well, and the man met it looked over his naked form. The creature seemingly made up its mind as it strode forward and asked of the group without hesitation.

Who are you? And where are we?"

The man remained silent, words escaping him as he realised just how little he could remember of himself. He had no knowledge of the room they'd found themselves in, nor did the others if his suspicions were correct. He looked down, noticing his fingers absently playing with the dirt they all rested on, and turned back to face the Kobold.

"It seems we are trapped here, though that is all I can say, dragon-kin.", he gestured towards the others, "Perhaps they may be of greater assistance in this question we seemingly share."

I can say objectively that just about every person in the party save maybe the mildly sociopathic Calopee should probably have a problem murdering a surrendered and charmed man unless we're having some massive character development in a very different direction.

The conversation between Sehanine and Bandit2 should be up shortly from Nimu, I will update once the group reacts to that/makes some sort of action.

Also I'm not complaining, but this is the first time in I think years where a combat encounter has finished and the first reaction of every single player isn't "I LOOT EVERYTHING"

I am glad we are back to the actual "posting", I will find ways to streamline combat in the future.

To that end, a couple things I want to ask you lot, feel free to post your thoughts here.

1) Do you think we could get to a combat update twice a week?
2) Did you think I was too tough on the rules in combat? I try to give rule of cool when called for (mage handing a sword and whatnot) but I figure if I`m going to give a huge open world I need to follow the rules to stop things from going completely off the rails, thoughts?
3) Did that combat need more goats?

When a charm wears off a target will revert to their previous attitude, in this case hostile/afraid. They won't remember being magically charmed but they will remember feeling friendly towards you if not quite sure why.

Combat is over. Not giving initiative order because...duh. Also I don't have to make another map...awesome.

Here's what happened anyway.

Tristan's spiritual weapon rolled a 15, hitting the leader and doing 7 damage before dissipating.
Tristan rolled a 17 hitting bandit8, dealing 3 damage.
Malachi rolled 18 hitting bandit8 for 9 damage, killing him.
Malachi rolled a 20 provokes no AoOs from the leader.
Relos rolls 17 hitting the leader and dealing 4 damage (putting him to 1hp...AHAHAHAHA)
The leader misses Malachi.
Calopee rolls 15 hitting the leader and dealing 13 damage, killing him super dead.
Sehanine rolls 23 spotting Bandit2 hiding in the wheat.
Sehanine casts Charm Person on Bandit2 and he fails his save and is successfully charmed.

Each of you have earned 450 EXP. Totals edited on the first page of thread.

So it's not technically combat anymore. Get to it!

Topic: Fortune's Favoured: Of Cupboards, Bark and Gallows...

Night, Isiah’s Farm, Schell

The heat of the blaze had changed the complexion of the once cool night air, staining it with an oppressive heat and the scent of blood and sweat, but it was a scent Tristan savoured nonetheless. He had spent a few scant moments in the nothingness beyond the plane, and as sour as the smell had been upon his return there was something about it that said ”home”. He’d have to act fast if he planned on making his return more permanent, but it seemed he’d have the uncommon advantage of the majority of his foes still believing he was dead. It was a strange way to get the drop on someone, but Tristan was nothing if not a consummate prankster, and who knew if the ol’ “you thought I was dead but really I’m alive” trick was one that would come around in the future.

It took him a moment to regain his bearings, but his inventory seemed intact and luckily his rapier hadn’t fallen far from his hand, nor had his conjured blade abandoned him though he could feel the magic that had summoned in waning. Wasting little time, Tristan directed his spiritual weapon from his position on the ground. The bandits’ bearded leader had focussed on the paladin Relos, and had paid little heed to the previously expired chosen of Discq; a folly that proved costly as the ghostly rapier lunged through the air like a spear, forcefully striking the man in the mid-section before vanishing back into the night as the magic binding it finally faded.

Tristan`s dramatic re-entrance to the battle wasn’t finished as he eyed the bandit standing to his side. The man was engrossed in his effort to eviscerate the evasive Malachi, and even from his prone position Tristan figured to create enough of a diversion between the Argent Blade and himself to make quick work of their foe. Swinging low, Tristan’s blade caught the man across the back of the legs eliciting a yelp equal parts surprise and pain as Malachi gave a smirk from across the man’s flank.

"Perhaps you should have helped the halfling after all,"

Malachi’s verbal jab was punctuated by a vicious riposte as he seemed to flick the bandit’s blade out of a defensive position before sinking his own into the man’s chest. The man shuddered as he released a gentle wheeze as Mal’s blade withdrew, and he stood only a moment more before dropping unceremoniously to the dirt, his own rapidly spreading blood pool mixing with the others on the ground as Malachi nimbly stepped over his still falling form. The Argent Blade had finally dispatched the flunkies sent to occupy him, and he relished the chance to finally attack the man that nearly killed his friend moments ago.

Malachi performed his trademark elusive maneuvering as he cleared the distance between the leader and himself. Somersaulting over the resting form of Tristan, Malachi found himself able to avoid the deadly reach of the man’s chain, trusting his hearing had been true enough as he dove to the side to avoid where he believed Sehanine to be standing unseen. He landing on his feet directly before his target, his rapier positioned inches from the man’s chest and a threat he was sure he’d heard the paladin utter earlier already on his lips.

"Lay down your weapons now and yield, lest you suffer the same fates as your companions."

The answer came fast and wet as the man’s defiant lob of spit nearly missed the Argent Blade’s face; though no words had been spoken, the man’s intent to fight to the death seemed clear. His wish was nearly granted by Relos, who took advantage of Malachi’s maneuvering to strike at the bearded man’s undefended back, catching him and delivering a wound that shook him to his very core. He dropped to a knee for a moment before rising with a curse.


The man’s cry turned into a roar as he swung is body, wildly whipping the chain towards Malachi with as much force as he could muster. Mal ducked the first swing but found himself out of position as the man seemed to spiral again for a second blow. For a moment the chain seemed destined to lodge itself in Mal’s unguarded face when a resounding *CRACK* broke the draw of the moment and the bearded man collapsed in a heap, the now anchored chain snapping inches from Mal’s chin. For a moment no one spoke before a stone, fresh from ricocheting off the former bandit leader’s skull landing almost noiselessly in the dirt. A whoop went up from the wheat field as some stalks started waving and shaking in a way unmistakably due to some sort of Halfling victory dance.

As the group caught their breath, Sehanine as ever pursued her own agenda. Stalking invisibly south around the hut, she spotted a rustle in the wheat, and he keen elven eyes zeroed in on the shadow shape. One of the men they’d been fighting had obviously had enough, and had sought refuge in the wheat much as the Favoured had a few minutes earlier. He seemed to be doing his best to keep still, and as Sehanine’s glamour prevented her discovery, the man seemed blissfully ignorant of the fact that he was being watched.

A malicious smile crossed the fey-elf’s face as her thoughts turned to her arcane trickery. Moments before this man had been an enemy, risking everything to kill her and her companions with his fellow riders; now he was alone, and soon…he would be hers. Re-appearing suddenly, Sehanine willed calm thoughts and reassuring feelings into the now panicked man. For a moment his eyes hazed over, and for a brief moment his thoughts were not his own, and as he snapped back to reality he looked over at Sehanine with a shaky if friendly smile. The elf needed no reassurance of her spell’s effectiveness as man quietly whispered a question.

”Is it safe to come out yet? Are they all gone?”
