End of round 1

The arrow that Dane looses catches one goblin in the side, who staggers a little, but is still standing as he moves behind a tree.

All four goblins then aim and fire at the charging Pavel! The black arrows fly, bouncing off his armor and shield, except for one which catches him under the shoulder.

[Goblins deal Pavel 5 points of damage]

[Goblin's Status:]
Goblin1: 7
Goblin2: 7
Goblin3: 7
Goblin4: 1

Yes! Crap! And again! Dang!

Dane could almost feel his arrow as it struck the side of the goblin. Even as he sprinted for the trees he grinned as the beast stumbled. Sadly, it didn't fall, but kept moving with Dane's arrow embedded in its side.

As Dane reached the tree line he saw Pavel charging across the stream at the enemy deflecting arrows left and right. Crap! Most of the arrows, anyway - one of them struck home. But like the goblin carrying Dane's fletching, Pavel also did not fall.

It would do no good to let him fight alone. Dane quickly grabbed another arrow from his quiver, drew and fired - aiming for the one he had injured previously. The shaft flew straight and true right at the beast, only to be deflected by a branch as the creature stepped into the tree line for shelter. Leaves and bark flew into the air, but the arrow zipped harmlessly past his target into the woods. Dang! 'Maybe the flying bark and leaves will distract him' he thought grimly as he reached for another arrow.

(OOC: Rolled a 10 on the dice - +2 for proficiency still yields only a 12, which I believe you said missed. I aimed at the same one as last time because that would be his preferred target and it seemed likely to be the one furthest from Pavel. If it isn't, please modify the target as aiming away from Pavel is priority #1.)

End of round 2

Pavel charges into the trees, and heads towards the closest goblin. It foolishly steps out to meet him, a sword in hand, growling. But with one sure, quick slash, Pavel slices open the creature's chest with his longsword, causing to fall the ground, groaning, blood gushing from it's wound.

The other three are stepping out from behind their trees to attack Pavel head on. As they do, something you didn't notice before suddenly materializes out of the wood - it's an elf of some sort, wielding two short swords. She jumps into the fray, stabbing the goblin Dane wounded in the back before the other two notice she's there. It falls to the ground.

The cornered goblins look worried, but are also surrounded, so they prepare to fight to the death. The two go for the elf, hoping she's an easier target!

She deftly doges the first attack, but the second goblin gives her a nasty cut on the arm with it's sword!

Charge!

As Dane ducked back behind the tree the fight in front of him changed drastically. Almost all at once, his arrow flew harmlessly off into the woods, Pavel skewered one of the little creeps and a strange elf emerged from the woods to aid in their fight! Dane had no idea where the figure had come from or why, but he was glad they were here - and effectively taking down a goblin as well!

Seeing the newcomer receive a wound, however, stirred the young rogue to action. His bow would now be a danger to friend an foe alike and so he grabbed his blade and charged. He had some experience with big scrums and an opponent was always most vulnerable when already focused on someone else. He sprinted across the open area to try and prove it so again!

Press the attack!

OOC: Sorry for the delay in posting. This week was the deadline for the paper I work at and it has been absolutely crazy!

IC: Pavel saw the newcomer take a goblin down, and then get swarmed. Though unsure about who this person was or what her intentions were towards us, she was helping us now. With only one goblin standing between Pavel and the ones attacking her, he pressed the attack to close the distance, hoping to dispatch the goblin facing him quickly

OOC: I'm not entirely sure how crits work in 5e so I'm rollng it like 3.5e...
I rolled a Nat 20. second roll nat 19
Damage roll 6 X 2 = 12+4 = 16
That should drop him...

IC: [assuming] Pavel dispatches the one goblin standing in his way, he moves forward, coming to the aid of this strange elfin warrior.

The fight ends

Pavel Keeps up his advance. The goblin that engages him tries to parry the incoming blow with his axe, but Pavel's sword cut clean through it, and continues on to splt the poor creature's head literally in half, reddish gray matter exposed as it drops like a rag.

The elf takes care of it's opponent with a feint and then a slice that cuts open it's throat, ending the battle.

She looks at you both, her weapons still in hand, at her sides. "Hold." she calls in a loud but controlled voice that has a quality of confidence and authority. "I'm Aspara, the ranger of these parts. What business do you all have here?"

Welcome Aspara, that was timely

Dane charged across the open area to aid his companion and the newcomer. With her arrival the odds had suddenly shifted in their favor - 3 on 2!

As he ran he saw first Pavel and then the newcomer bring down a goblin. 3-on-0! The fight was won. They had taken down a second group of goblins! He slowed his sprint as he approached the stream and the stranger. When she called out "halt!" he was more than willing to obey. He stopped a short distance away as she introduced herself. He kept an eye on the cave entrance as they talked in case someone on the inside had heard the disturbance.

"Aspara? You are well-met and welcome. You have good timing and my companion and I thank you for your assistance with the goblins." He turned to look at Pavel as he spoke to include him in the conversation. "I am Dane Turnblade." He thought about introducing his companion, but decided his name was his own to give out. "We were following these goblins. We believe they attacked our employer and his guard. We think there is a chance they are still alive - and if so, they are in that cave. One of the missing is also a relative of a friend of ours. Our path leads into that cave," he added with a long look at the opening.

He looked again to Pavel. "Is it common for rangers to wander these wild lands on their own? If my companion agrees, we would welcome your aid in finding those the goblins took." As he waited for the other two to speak he began rummaging through his supplies looking for something to use for light. Two goblin fights, a mysterious ally appearing in the wilderness and now heading underground - this was turning into a real adventure!

A new acquaintance.

Her eyes changes their focus as Dane speaks to her, and she has an air of wariness, changing her glance from Dane, to Pavel, to the cave, and then in different directions.

"I see..." she hesitates. Her gaze settles on Dane for a few moments, and then she suddenly seems to relax a little and says,

"To be honest, I've been following for a bit. I had found a bit of a scene earlier...I'm assuming you did too. But there were four goblins guarding it, so I decided not to investigate further. You two took care of those? Impressive.

"I crossed the river a little bit ago and decided to see if you'd head for this cave, and it seems you did, though being that the goblins attacked you instead of welcoming you, I suppose that means you aren't here to help or trade with them." She sighs.

"And you're right, we don't usually range this far south. But my post was getting a bit dull so I decided to see if the reports of increased goblin activity down here were true. Seems like they are.

"Look, I'll help you, but do me a favor: If anyone asks, you never saw me. Now can you give me a hand with this?" She rips away any clothing covering her wound and produces some bandages and a fluid for cleaning wounds.

...

"Dane why don't you keep an eye out," Pavel said to his companion.
"Aspara, I'll make you a deal. I'll help bandage you, if you help me look a little less like a pin cushion."

Pavel set his shield down gently so as not to disturb the arrow in his (left) shoulder any more than necessary.

Once everyone was bandaged up, and in 'working' order... Pavel picked up his shield again testing the weight on his injured arm.

Turning to Aspara, "Thank you. Though you don't notice it much in the heat of battle, wounds start to hurt when the heat of battle settles, and that arrow didn' tickle!"

Speaking so as to include Dane, "Shall we continue our quest, and see what goblins we can send to their Maker?"

OOC: all of that assumes that nothing attacks us while we were licking our wounds.
