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?”

Night, Isiah’s Farm, Schell

Tristan’s prone form gave a gurgling cough, a thick spurt of blood spewing from his mouth near Malachi’s feet. It was a macabre sight, though at the very least it meant the man was still alive if only barely. Time was ticking inexorably onwards however, and it was not on the Favoured’s side. This distraction would have to be dealt with swiftly if they wanted any chance of saving their comrade from his fate.

Relos had heard the bearded man’s bellows from across the clearing, and every fibre of his being urged him to rush to his comrades. The men who had attacked him were subdued, one dead, one lying on his back, and Relos spared a last glance at the latter man he’d brought to the ground. The bandit was very much alive, his chest heaving in exhausted gasps, but he was otherwise motionless, his gaze focussed on Relos. Perhaps he’d heed the half-elf’s advice and stay down, but there was no time to stick around and enforce that command. Relos continued north, his view of his former foe being obstructed by the hut as he rounded the corner.

In the melee, Malachi continued to dip and dodge as he made his way to his new friend’s prone form. The swordsman carried elixirs in the event of emergency, and given the dire straits Tristan seemed in, they were needed now. The men before him would prove a challenge however, if he attempted to administer it, but the choice was clear, Tristan had been wounded rushing to Mal’s aid and the Argent Blade reached for his satchel just as a hissing voice caught his attention.


It only took him a second to recognise Sehanine’s voice; her disappearance in the wheatfield moments ago being fully explained by her apparent presence at his side.

"I've got Tristan, just keep poking those twits full of holes. Eventually they'll spring a leak that will bleed them dry."

Though he’d only known her a short while, Malachi had seen enough to trust the elf’s intent when it came to Tristan. The pair seemed to have a bond that transcended their little band, and her doting on the man freed Mal up to dispatch the ones threatening them. Lunging out with his rapier, Malachi caught the man before him with its point, driving the blow home and withdrawing his blade accompanied by the satisfying *thud* of his foe hitting the packed earth.

Only one foe stood within easy reach, his eyes still watering from the earlier theatrics, and Malachi moved around him, hoping to draw his attention away from Tristan. As he’d done so often throughout the combat, Malachi sprung and rolled, easily evading the man’s clumsy swings and making his way to his foe’s flank. As the shadows once more were drawn up around him, Malachi hoped he’d bought enough time for Sehanine to complete her task.

Relos arrived at the scene just in time to catch the end of Sehanine’s hushed directions. The half-elf possessed the power to channel healing energy, though it seemed he could save it should Sehanine be attending Tristan. His other talents would have to come into play now as he could see the lead rider stalking into the wheatfield, ostensibly pursuing the elusive Calopee.

"Why don't you stop playing in the wheat like some giant buffoon and swing that limp chain of yours over this way!?"

Relos’s cry rang out over the farm and the bearded man, already frustrated with seeking the seemingly intangible Halfling, turned to face the paladin with a menacing grin.

”COME TO DIE WITH YER FRIENDS, HAVE YA?!” the man shouted as he lunged out of the field, his chain already whipping out of the darkness with a speed Relos had failed to anticipate. The cold steel of the chain lashed at the joints of his armour, seemingly finding a chink in his plate as he felt the sharpened spikes dig into his flesh. The paladin gritted his teeth and the chain withdrew, tearing trace amounts of flesh with it, but he’d done his job, hopefully drawing enough of the man’s attention for Calopee to take advantage.

Malachi meanwhile found himself suddenly pressed as the remaining bandit began a wild offensive. Perhaps Mal had underestimated his foe’s ferocity as the teary eyed man’s onslaught caught him off-guard and he found himself desperately parrying thrusts. A sudden jolt of pain tore through him as slash cut through his guard, slicing down into his shoulder and drawing blood. With what little the bandit could see, he had seen two of his friends be cut down right in front of him, and it seemed he would not go down without a fight.

In the wheat fields, Calopee was relieved to see his pursuer give up his hunt in favour of easier targets. In doing so, he presented the halfling’s favourite target, an unaware one, and she would not waste that opportunity. Reaching into her rock sack she withdrew one of her special stones; though she wouldn’t have a chance to utilise its carefully shaped curves, she did feel more confident in her aim than with a roughly hewn rock. It arced gracefully through the air, striking her target in the back of the neck before bouncing harmlessly to the ground, drawing the man’s attention once more as he turned back to face the stone throwing annoyance.

Throughout it all, Sehanine rummaged through her bag, seeking the potion she required to aid Tristan. Her thoughts pondering the idiocy of someone who would rush into combat largely unprotected without realising the consequences as she found the bottle and removed the stopper from it. She brushed the blood away from Tristan’s lips as she stuffed the flask in, pouring the liquid down his throat as quickly as possible.

A moment passed before Tristan awoke with a gasp and a cough, his eyes open and filled with bewilderment as he saw absolutely nothing but the sky in front of him. His confusion was abated by Sehanine’s whisper as she rose up away from him. ”Enough with the heroics. Just lay there and heal yourself. And you're welcome... human idiot.”
