    Cyc smacks the mucker with his remote spiritual weapon. Gloorpk takes a point of radiant damage.

    I can post their position soon, but you do know it generally from the description. The new arrivals aren't in initiative yet, so you needn't worry about them yet. I urge you to take out Gloorpk this round. If you manage to do that, I might consider allowing you guys a short rest...?

    Since you guys didn't take a short rest after you cleared the guards at the entrance.. I'm understanding you are all fairly strapped for HP? And could use a short rest?... And you always have the option* of just running away and coming back later.

     *Except your exit is currently guarded by the newcomers.

    Ara says over to his companions. "We have some guests over here at the cave entrance. Finish off that fool in the skull, Quxx and I will make sure no one makes it past the entrance."

    Ara moves to L10 to cu off any possible flanking while still having cover and readies his arrow at the entrance. If an enemy attempts to enter, Ara releases an arrow at it. If that hits and there is another enemy within 5ft, Ara will loose a second at them as well.

    Leirthal The Magnificent

    AC 16 (18 arcane deflection)
    Hp 20/20

    Passive perception 13
    Passive investigation 15
    Passive insight 13
    Spell save DC

    Mage armour 8 hours


    1(4)✓✓✓✓
    2(2)✓✓

    “If you'd stick to healing the infantry instead of running around more than Nok does,” Leirthal mutters, “I would still have those spells and we would still have our tank.  Seriously, a dwarf in the vanguard…”

    Leirthal casts sleep inside the skull

    Result of the throw of dice "5d8" :

    8 + 8 + 3 + 5 + 3 = 27

    Since Quxx has been made aware of the new enemies, he would like to take his readied action at the end of the turn.

    Leirthal's Sleep spell Hit Points total was not high enough to affect Gloorpk. Should have tried casting it at a higher level.

    Does Leirthal take a movement?


    At the start of his turn, Gloorpk fails his DEX save against the sticky webs, and is Restrained. He prepares to use his magic, so Quxx can react with his readied action...


    MAS
    "HP: 9/18
    AC: 17
    Passive Perception: 12
    Prof Bonus: +2
    Fire resistance 
    Spell Slots, 2nd Lvl: 1/2
    Speed: 30
    Spell Attack/DC: +5/13
    Healing Light Dice Pool: 2/4

    Quxx stays put, and readies action, cast GUIDING BOLT, condition = something like an enemy spellcaster, leader, (a high-value target) etc appears in striking range."


    MAS
    "Since Quxx has been made aware of the new enemies, he would like to take his readied action at the end of the turn." 


    You can not change your readied action due to new information. You use it as stated, or lose it. On his turn, Quxx opted to take a readied action, which means he uses his Reaction to act very specifically upon the trigger that was earlier stated.

    Your trigger is overly-broad, but I am allowing it in this instance. Gloorpk is a caster and high-value target.

    Gloorpk has 3/4 cover (+5 AC) inside the dragon skull. He is also restrained so Quxx gains Advantage on the attack roll of Guiding Bolt.

    Guiding Bolt
    Evocation

    Level: 1
    Casting time: 1 Action
    Range: 120 feet
    Components: V, S
    Duration: 1 round
    A flash of light streaks toward a creature of your choice within range.
    Make a ranged spell attack against the target. On a hit, the target takes 4d6 radiant damage, and the next attack roll made against this target before the end of your next turn has advantage, thanks to the mystical dim light glittering on the target until then.

    At higher level
    When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 2nd level or higher, the damage increases by 1d6 for each slot level above 1st.

    to hit:
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +5" :

    13 + 5 = 18

    dmg if hits:
    Result of the throw of dice "5d6" :

    1 + 6 + 5 + 4 + 3 = 19

    @ Matt, did you take advantage on the roll? You get advantage because of Web. Leirthal's earlier spell is still in effect. Sleep doesn't require concentration, and neither does casting Guiding Bolt (though Create Bonfire does).

    Result of the throw of dice "1d20" : 20
    Whoo! Automatic hit, and x2 damage dice!
    Extra damage: Result of the throw of dice "5d6" : 4 + 6 + 5 + 6 + 1 = 22
    For a total of 19 + 22 = 41 radiant damage.


    So, before he can get off another bolt of lightning, Gloorpk is extinguished, scorched to death by Quxx's positive energy. The Chieftain of the Mud-Hides was hunted down and exterminated like a rat in a hole.
    Gloorpk's squirmy reign is over, but more of his loyal followers remain outside the cave mouth.


    Uggloor is at T-10,


     Huron, his prisoner a halfling child, is at T-11.


    Giant frogs 1 and 2 at T-5 and S-10.



    Leapers 1 and 2 at T-6 and S-11.
    Mucker at U-6, Croaker at U-10.




    The returned scouting party are waiting for the invaders to act. So far they've only seen Ara. He has concealment behind the fungus patch, but they saw him cross over.

    The party have cleared the toadwall caverns.


    You can take a short rest. Conduct healing, spend hit dice, replenish spells, etc. No skill checks.

    When ready, roll initiative to begin a new combat encounter.

    Bru will take this chance to spend as many hit dice as needed. Rolls to come, but while they rest, he asks if anyone has ideas for traps or ways to use the caves to their advantage this time.

    Bru Zher
    HP: 1/35
    AC: 15 [16 with +1 ring, 18 with mithril shield (resistant to slashing/piercing) and ring]
    SV: STR (+5), CON (+5), danger sense for DEX (ADV)
    Rage: 1/3, +2 damage, resistant to all damage but psychic
    Battleaxe: +5tohit, 1d8/1d10(2handed) + 3
    Handaxe: +5tohit (+4 if thrown), 1d6 + 3 (+2 if thrown), 20'/60'
    Javelin: +4tohit, 1d6 + 2, 30'/120'

    Bru will spend 2 hit dice.
    Rolling "1d12 +3" 2 times
    1: 1 + 3 = 4
    2: 12 + 3 = 15

    Which puts him at 20/35 HP, so he will also spend his third hit dice.
    Result of the throw of dice "1d12 +3" :
    9 + 3 = 12
    Which puts him at 32/35 HP.

    Feeling refreshed after his break, he cracks his knuckles and readies his shield for what comes next.

    He says to Bru "We've got two choices lad: let 'em come to us or take the fight to them. I'm likin' the looks of our defensive position up here. We can give 'em the same hell we fought through to take this Kord-forsaken hole in the ground. Ara and the mages can drop some punishment on 'em as they make the climb. Me, you & Drusus can rush any of 'em that make it over the lip. Or we could just use the high ground to rain down on 'em where they stand. Suits me either way. Only problem I'm seein' is that little fella they've brought back with 'em. It won't do to have 'im caught in the cross fire. Any of ya got a solution to that one? Nok, think ya could break him loose when the shootin' starts?"

    Searching the skull would take too much time right now. Arcane Recovery is fine.

    He looks around at the others as he continues. "That thing in the skull said his champion would be back. What if I was to ask for his submission with the head of his old boss in my hands? I'm the new boss, yeah? He can choose to submit or be turned into paste. If they revolt, I can step back into the caves where you all wait for the ambush, or we might get lucky and they bend the knee or flee. What do you boys think of that?"

    Not looking for movement, searches, or skill checks right now. You can do that on your turn. Spending hit dice, replenishing spells (if allowed on a short rest), and bits of dialogue concerning party planning is all fine.

    Your plan is perfectly acceptable. However, your characters actually did not hear Gloorpk speak about the champion. That is all metagame knowledge, provided as a bonus by your humble DM.

    Leirthal takes a position at k-10.

    "We should plan for that not to work. We should force a bottle neck there, (O-8 and p-9)."

    Leirthal readies a firebolt to target the first aggressor to approach out of polite parley.

    "We should also plan for them to use the waterfall more freely than we did."

    Aha. In that case, he said nothing about a champion. He knows that many creatures follow a pack or tribal structure, so a show of dominance would still be a worthy display.

    S h o r t R e s t
    A short rest is a period o f downtime, at least 1 hour long


    We are hanging out for at least an hour but we can't get in position or make prepations that take 6 seconds?

    I assume that Cyc's Spiritual Weapon is now defunct? We finished combat in Round 8 and he had through Round 10 for duration.

    Combat in the last fight went up to round 9. The spiritual weapon can exist in this fight for one round.


    Your PCs took a breather, not a standard short rest. Certainly not of the standard time duration, just gaining the benefit for a quick power-up. Otherwise the raiders would have already stormed in and slaughtered the PCs. TPK is not that fun, but I'm not opposed to it. So consider it a quick breather, a favor from the DM, when most PCs were down to only handfuls of HP. Plus, we get to roll with a new initiative!

    Initiative, Round 1
    1) Leirthal-25
    2) Cyc-20
    3) Ara-19
    4) frogs-18
    5) Bru-16
    6) Uggloor-16
    7) croaker-13
    8 ) Nok-10
    9) Drusus-9
    10) mucker-7
    11) Quxx-5
    12) leapers-5
    13) Huron-3


    I'm not seeing how Leirthal can get over to K-10. (It's a wall anyways), but even at K-11, that would seem to be a double-move from F-3. The mage needs to keep his action, if he want's to ready Firebolt. it also burns his reaction later.


    Cyc is up.

    Sorry, I didn't know I had to "ready action" to react. Ara readies "Hail of Thorns" if he sees any enemies come over the ridge and have at least 3 within 5 feet of each other and they don't have the prisoner. If not, then he will simply target the enemies individually with no spell cast.

    Thanks for the map, Chris! However, you reversed the grid coordinates, but that's okay. We'll roll with the new grid layout from here on out.

    Cyc's spiritual weapon winks out. He moves to (what is now) G-13.  FYI, moving diagonal isn't allowed when there are corners (of rocks, trees, or buildings) in that square. If it's a minor intrusion, it might just be difficult terrain, but then you can just go around it for the same amount of movement.. Also, moving though an allied-occupied square is considered difficult terrain (except for the halfling).

    Quxx's bonfire is still up, at F-8.

    Initiative, Round 1
    1) Leirthal-25
    2) Cyc-20
    3) Ara-19
    4) frogs-18
    5) Bru-16
    6) Uggloor-16
    7) croaker-13
    8 ) Nok-10
    9) Drusus-9
    10) mucker-7
    11) Quxx-5
    12) leapers-5
    13) Huron-3

    With Leithal, Cyc, and Ara waiting at the ready, the frogs move in.

    Frog1 hops to E-17. Frog 2 hops to F-15.

    Leirthal, Cyc, and Ara all have LOS on Frog 2 as he makes the standing leap, but Ara sees it behind 3/4 cover, because of the curving protuberances of the cave.

    Only Ara can target Frog 1 as it makes a standing leap.


    PCs may run their readied actions. Frogs still have actions remaining.
