    The party finds itself no more than a few miles outside of Milling as the light begins to fail. They make haste towards a road for the extra protection that it's wards may offer. The night is still and quiet. No wind moves through the trees, and the normal sounds of animal life are absent. Every step seems to echo as they move along the dirt road. The forest pushes in claustrophobically along the path, a solid wall of brush to either side.

    In the dimness of the last light ahead, they see a figure in a dark cloak sitting on a stone dias...that appears to have once been the base of ward spire. Across his lap rests a polearm. He produces a flame and draws deeply from a pipe as you approach, and in the moments light, you see a black and magnificent beard tumbles down from his broad and tanned face.

    He speaks, his voice friendly and welcoming...

    "Good evening travelers. A dangerous time of day to be outside the wards, wouldn't you say? But I am mighty, and can ensure no harm will befall you before you reach your door. Shall we make an agreement?"

    Ali offers a skeptical tilt of his head before checking his 6.   He shoulders up with Tungo and clears his throat.  "Striking bargains with strangers is more dangerous," he challenges politely.  "We could be Djinni and tricking you into a bad deal."

    Vozz lets his spider familiar slip down his sleeve and the back of his leg, hopefully unseen in the failing light. When the spider has reached the treeline, 2 sq to the SE, Vozz will Produce Flame in his palm. Vozz holds his hand high to provide some light to the situation.

    The spider skitters into the treeline as Vozz produces a torch like flame (bright light in a 20-foot radius and dim light for an additional 20 feet.) In the dim illumination, you see that the figure is clad in a cloak of dark purple. His clothes are loose fitting but well tailored, like that of wealthy merchant in stories of the old times. His hair and beard are of a lustrous black.



    The cloaked figure chuckles heartily...

    "Hey Ho! One never knows who'll they'll meet on the road in these strange times. You are not the average travellers, I see. Perhaps sharper of tooth than others, but the night is dark and full of terrors. What seems a short mile may prove a farther walk than first imagined. My offer is this - I provide my might to your aid, and ensure that no harm will befall you before you reach your door. In return, you will provide your might when I require it at later time. Do you agree?"

    "The traveler speaks boldly, but Tungo is not impressed. Tungo's comrades know neither a stranger's skills, nor even his name. Only djinni and villains hide their true names, Tungo knows that much! Tungo is not without honour. He knows enough to return good deeds in kind. Tungo agrees to help a stranger who aids our cause!"

    Clarification required because the term has been thrown around a few times - The term/concept "demon" is not part of the vernacular or known mythology. I've made a few minor edits to dialogue for consistency, substituting the term "Djinni" instead.

    It's only been a day in game time, and there has actually been a lot revealed - but I am sure that things still feel a little muddled. Information will begin to coalesce into a more solid plotline soon!

    Game on...

    Young Vozz has a million thoughts racing through his head....

    Why are we even talking to this guy?

    We need to keep moving!

    If he is offering help, why does it feel threatening?

    I should think of something clever to say too



    "You address us with courtesy, bearded one.  But if you offer is a truly one of friendship, then you will take no offense if we refuse.  We have no fight with you, but the longer we stand around talking, the more we all put ourselves at risk.  We wish you safe journeys on your own.  We go in peace."   Vozz nods to his friends to start moving around the fallen obelisk to the left side.

    Ali snaps out of his instinct to win the debate and follows Vozz, warily passing the novice to take point.

    Ronan agrees with Vozz and Ali. Why promise one's service to a stranger for such a non-benefit? Ronan follows the rest of the party.

    Tungo "agrees to help a stranger who aids our cause"- and as he speaks the words, a shock runs through him as if he has plunged into freezing cold water. It somehow makes him break into the sweat of a hard labor at the same time...

    The cloaked figure stands and bows dramatically, leaning on the pole-arm and making a grand, sweeping gesture with his free hand. "Agreement is struck, Tungo. Such has been spoken, such has been bound. I have the might of Tungo when my need arises. But though you walk in fearsome shadows, my might is now yours to command. Call out the word of DAGAN when battle is joined, Tungo. Covenant demands I answer!"

    He then strides confidently down the road in the opposite direction of travel as the party moves past. As he slips out the reach of Vozz's "torch" light, the companions make their past the fallen ward spire.

    And moments later, a threatening, predatory growl erupts from the treeline to the south! A savage looking creature with a vaguely mannish face, cave lion's fore-body, and a scorpion-like tail leaps to edge of the torchlight and bares it's hideous teeth...



    Ali = 11
    Ronan = 11
    Tungo = 11
    Unknown threat = 9
    Vozz = 7

    Ronan casts Entangle on the ground below the creature. Vines and plant growth sprout up beneath its feet and cause a 20' square around it to become difficult terrain.
    Creatures within the area may use their action to attempt a Strength save at DC 13 or become restrained.

    "We need to get out of here fast before that thing can free itself!" Ronan continues to concentrate on the spell and makes a standard movement action toward their direction of travel.

    Entangle spell description is on p. 238 of Player's Handbook

    Ali raises his bow and snaps a quick shot at the creature - but he cannot draw an accurate bead  on the target's half concealed body, so the shot flies past into the dark. (See rules for cover pasted below).




    "GRAWRRR!" It cries in a moment of pain, then spits in the dirt at its feet. "I scent the DAGAN nearby and will taste his black heart before the rising of the sun - But first, to feast on fools who dare to stand at his side!




    Map is current. The toppled ward spire is 5 ft tall. The creature is size large. Cover rules from PHB =

    A target with half cover has a +2 bonus to AC and
    Dexterity saving throws. A target has half cover if an
    obstacle blocks at least half o f its body. The obstacle
    might be a low wall, a large piece o f furniture, a narrow
    tree trunk, or a creature, whether that creature is an
    enemy or a friend.

    A target with three-quarters cover has a +5 bonus
    to AC and Dexterity saving throws. A target has threequarters
    cover if about three-quarters o f it is covered
    by an obstacle. The obstacle might be a portcullis, an
    arrow slit, or a thick tree trunk.

    A target with total cover can’t be targeted directly
    by an attack or a spell, although some spells can reach
    such a target by including it in an area o f effect. A
    target has total cover if it is completely concealed by
    an obstacle.

    Tungo moves to H-11 or so, outside of range of the Entangle spell. Crouching, he ducks around the corner of the base of the fallen obelisk and fires off a shot with his bow:

    Ronan strums the chords of the Great Green Web like a lute, and the ground beneath the creature responds, morphing into a mass of tangled growth that twines around the beast's legs and grabs them tightly.



    As Tungo shouts "Uh, DAGAN! You left behind your pet! DAGAN DAGAN DAGAN!" , a magnificent and lustrous black beard springs forth to cover his face. He feels yet again the strange combination of icy cold and uncomfortable heat.

    Tungo is up!

    The map is current, the creature is on deck, Vozz will close the round.

    Ali has skulker and can see better in poor lighting than normal people.

    Have you read post # 31 and are you keeping this action?

    Tungo is bewildered by his new facial hair! Sure, keep the same action. He shoots his bow, horribly.

    Vozz calls out to the beast, "Only one of us was actually foolish enough to make treaty with Dagan. The rest of us wanted nothing to do with him. Back off, now! We will defend ourselves."

    Vozz hurls a Ray of Frost at the chimera. It looks like Vozz might have a shot through the broken obelisk. Vozz would slide 5-10ft either way if it improved his shot. Otherwise Vozz will hold his position or adjust to keep the beast at the edge of his light radius. Vozz also has Darkvision, if lighting is an issue.

    Gentlemen - I appreciate your enthusiasm, but If you insist on continuing to declare actions before the actions occurring prior to your turn have been declared, resolved, or logged on the map, I am going to accept the declaration regardless of what information you decided to ignore, and it is going to eventually end up poorly.

    Plan your next move and have your post written in advance if you like, but please refrain from actually posting it until the map and situation is current and your turn has been activated in the initiative order. Thank you!





    Tungo's arrow deflect's harmlessly off of the creature's tough hide. It laughs as the arrow falls to the ground. "HA HA! Such pitiful vermin. The DAGAN chose his proxy poorly."

    The creature considers the restrictive  It tugs at its bonds, testing its strength against the thick vines. The beast then crouches low and springs upwards with a mighty leap, deploying a pair of lizard-like wings to provide an extra boost. It bursts through the entangling growth and hovers in place a few feet above the ground, flapping its wings to remain airborne.

    Vozz calls out to the beast, "Only one of us was actually foolish enough to make treaty with Dagan. The rest of us wanted nothing to do with him. Back off, now! We will defend ourselves."

    "LIAR!" bellows the creature. "I saw you speaking with him, here where is bound our duel, and you attacked me on sight - YOU ALL stand proxy for the DAGAN. So be it, SHEVEK shall have honor by tooth and claw as Covenant demands!"

    The young Wizard can think of no response but to hurl a ray of frost at the creature; the strike leaves a portion of the monster's thick hide frozen and brittle.

    Ali readies an arrow but will only fire if the creature attacks:

    "Yes, we was speaking with Dagan, but we are not knowing him and he tricked my friend into bad deal for "protection" on the road. We thought you is part of Dagan's trick just like you thinking we are. Dagan is making his self an enemy to us in spite of his tricksy 'covenant.' Is not the enemy of my enemy, therefore, being my friend? This is not battle, but misunderstanding. If you are so mighty, and we are weak, then you do not need to be hasty. Rushing to judge is fear, like I am apologizing for with my afraid arrow. Real might can taking time to be, how you say, circumspect. Helping my friend is good way to thwart this Dagan, no? Is win-win. Much better deal than any of us getting by fighting."

    "This is getting too crazy for me! I'm with the woodswyrd!" Tungo takes a parting shot before running away, following Ronan.

    Attk: 6 + 4 = 10, if it's a hit (doubtful): 7 + 2 = 9 damage

    Ali Abbas Uz Amirr looks around at his group's failing ranks and thinks, ziss is why I am always working alone...

    "If I am having agreement with Dagan, so why is he not coming to helping me then?! How bout I put down my bow and we sitting down to talk ziss over and then if you still think Ali Abbas Uz Amirr is lying, then you eat me."

    Ronan shapeshifts into an ebon-hued forest cat, then darts away and abandons his companions to their fate.

    The barbarian warrior, a young champion sent forth to represent the honor and strength of his Clan, is uncharacteristically shaken and seems to be teetering on the edge of cowardice. He fires a half-hearted bow-shot at the creature, which misses wildly due to his shaking hands. Then, for the first time in his life, he is overcome by fear and begins to run from a fight...He prays that Clan Krogran will not hear of this!

    TUNGO - Determine your ending position after your 30 ft move.

    Ali maintains a casual cool as he always does when things go sideways...as they always seem to do. Although they rarely seem to go sideways to this extreme. He sees the creature raise it's scorpion tail and point it as if  launch an attack, and decides that negotiations have failed - so he looses his arrow!

    Condition met "Monster attacks party member" triggers Ali readies action "Attack with bow"

    Ali please post your attack.

    4+7=11. (probably a miss). The arrow slips from Ali's fingers, but he still doesn't feel right about this. His hesitation makes him miss.

    Tungo bursts into the tangled undergrowth, expecting to feel the scratch and tear of branches as he flails ahead blindly in the dark. He is surprised to instead feel the sensation of what should have been sharp, stabbing wood sliding smoothly across his skin...

    SHEVEK laughs as Ronan and Tungo flee and Ali's arrow fails to find it's target.

    "OH, how pitiful! I am almost too ashamed to kill you all...well, not THAT ashamed I suppose!"

    It jumps into the air and flys forward to land at the feet of Vozz and Ali.

    It takes two broad swipes at Ali with it's razor sharp claws. Ali steps deftly away from the first attack, but is a moment too slow to avoid the second.

    It then snaps at Vozz with it's savage maw...scoring a brutal bite against the wizard

    Vozz hopes his luck holds and replaces Shevek's attack roll with the following:

    Result of the throw of dice "1d20" :

    7



    L u c k y
    You have inexplicable luck that seems to kick in at just
    the right moment.
    You have 3 luck points. Whenever you make an attack
    roll, an ability check, or a saving throw, you can spend
    one luck point to roll an additional d20. You can choose
    to spend one o f your luck points after you roll the die,
    but before the outcome is determined. You choose which
    o f the d20s is used for the attack roll, ability check, or
    saving throw.
    You can also spend one luck point when an attack
    roll is made against you. Roll a d20, and then choose
    whether the attack uses the attacker’s roll or yours.


    Luck used 2\3

    Does Vozz still get hit?

    At the very moment that the creature goes to clamp down on his arm, Vozz lose's his footing and stumbles, nearly knocking himself over trying to get out of the beast's way. This moves him just a few inches further to the left than where he was, and  SHEVEK's maw chomps down on empty air!

    Vozz takes ZERO damage.

    He marvels at the good luck hidden within the bad, and recalls a lesson where the scholars at The Tower once quoted Cormac of the Ancients - “You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from.”

    Vozz is up.
