    Revenge is a dish best served with cold cuts

    Each of you, by whatever means you choose, found your way into the crew of the dwarven pirate Gundren Goldseeker.  



    Gundren was a fair captain and a good dwarf.  He was first in line to cross the gangplanks and the last one hauling off the loot.  Gundren always bought a round of drinks after a successful sortie.  Gundren gave every man on the Hammer Hand 1 vote when deciding the course if lost at sea.  He valued keen minds as much as strong arms.  Each man was given a fair share of the loot based on their rank.  Over the years, each of you became a trusted officer.  You may have held the rank of Ship’s Mage, Gunnery Sgt, Sailing Master or even First Mate.  The Hammer Hand  was better for having each of you.  Together you found adventure, danger, exotic ports, even more exotic women and plenty of booty.  

    Gundren had many rivals, but none was as fierce as the Ork Captain One-Eyed Rogan.  



    Late one night, Rogan and his men snuck on board the Hammer Hand with murder in their eyes.  



    The Hammer Hand was lost and Gundren with her.  Only you 7 managed to escape in a Launch during the chaos.



    Watching the Hammer Hand burn with Gundren’s corpse on it left a hole in your hearts.  Hearing the laughter and cheers of One-Eyed Rogan’s men as they sailed away in victory lit a fire of vengeance in your souls.

    For months, you have tracked One-Eyed Rogan across the seas… several times narrowly missing him.  You have picked up work on other ships, under lesser captains, just to stay on his trail.  

    Finally, your hard work has paid off.  You found Rogan’s Cog anchored in Wyvern Bay.  



    Besides the local wildlife, Wyvern Bay is home to Port Claw, which is little more than warehouses and taverns.  

    From the cover of the forest, you watched half of Rogan’s crew disembark for Port Claw and night of R&R.  Your Launch is moored nearby.  This is your chance for revenge and the time to begin making your own names as PIRATES!

    divide and conquer... Sam wants to go after the ship. If we can overpower it before the other half of the crew gets back, we could just sail away... unless the ship gets burned first (looks worryingly at Pyrriannix)

    current plan:

    Beckham and Hawkes in the launch to Rogan's Cog

    Crispy waits on shore for the pig roast (I guess he can fly out too if needed)

    Barker?

    Renda?



    study FYI, as you would know this.... a Cog is a smaller ship, like a merchant vessel. It only needs a crew of 4 (which is why it's a good starter ship for you) but it can carry up to 20 passengers. Rogan earns his keep as a pirate through boarding parties, not canon battles. You know he keeps between 15-20 total men (mostly orcs and such, few men\elves) on ship, so figure 8-10 on board and 8-10 on shore. There is always a mix of fresh recruits and veteran sailors.

    I'm in to clear the cog and take it as our own. If Crispys fire doesnt do the trick, I can sweep them from the docks with more water than they can take.

    500gp and 2 items of +1 quality, from the OoG thread

    We will do some old fashioned pirate loot rolls if you manage to take the ship without burning or sinking it

    How are you getting to the cog?
    Any prep actions?

    The cog is anchored about 300 ft out in the bay. Wyvern Bay is calm tonight. The moon is partially obscured by clouds. The party can see the capt's quarters at the rear has dim light inside, probably candles. There appears to be some activity on deck, but you aren't sure what at this distance.

    I think that would work but only if it's all of us in the boat. They'd probably realizes something was up if it was just 2 or 3 people

    Sjon digs though his component pouch and draws forth a small piece of reed. As he puts it up to his salt-dried lips he takes a long, slow draw before exhaling, muttering the incantation which grants the entire party the ability to breathe underwater for the next 24 hours.

    Water Breathing
    This spell grants up to ten willing creatures you can see within range the ability to breathe Underwater until the spell ends. Affected creatures also retain their normal mode of respiration.

    Have at it, mates!

    *On my phone, so I will post stat block with a L3 spell ticked off once combat proper starts.

    that's such a nice upgrade for that spell in 5e



    The party slips into Wyvern Bay.   The cold water is dark unless you stay within a couple feet of the surface.  Anyone without Darkvision is blind below the surface.




      Everyone has an initial moment of panic as they consciously take in water for the first time.  You know that Sjon's magic is powerful, but it is hard to fight the natural instinct of breathing water.  The first breath is thick in your throat.  There is a painful tearing sensation on the sides of your neck as multiple tiny gill slits open, separating the tender skin.



    Your lungs have to work harder, water is heavier to breathe than air.  It's like breathing after a wind sprint with no warm up.  It's takes your bodies a couple breathes to catch your breath.




    How do you proceed to Rogan's cog?

    I have a map of the cog itself for when you get there


    maybe I can just explain something if you have a question about the swim.  the cog is anchored about 300ft out in the bay, so that's 60 hexes\squares of movement, which would be a big map just for swimming
    *edit* just for scale, the combat map is about 25ft (5 hexes) of water around the boat. otherwise the boat is too small I think


    my concern is whether the party approaches near the surface, if they don't have darkvision, which would be easier for someone on the cog to spot or if they swim deeper underwater which would be harder to spot

    Sjon doesnt have darkvision but wants to remain unseen, so he will hang back at the back of the party and grab onto the tail end of the 50' hempen rope he has produced from his explorers pack.

    I suppose it's worth pointing out that firearms get wet underwater, yes? What's the dry time on powder?

    drying time on black powder is generally several hours.

    Sam also has 50' of silk rope, if that is needed

    I suppose it's worth pointing out that firearms get wet underwater, yes? What's the dry time on powder?

    affraid good point on getting the powder wet, I hadn't even thought of that !


    Ok, using a rope and Sam as a guide sounds like a good plan!


    Sam - since you are lead swimmer, give me a stealth check for the swim and then everyone can make a perception check when they come out of the water or just use Passive if you want, up to you

    based on what you notice, I can get stuff placed on the combat map (or not)

    "Aye matey's, it's a sound plan.  But what sorta distraction, Crispy?  It needs to seem natural so as to dull their alertness.  Sjon, can't you just turn into a bird or summin? No need for ropes or a bobbin the surface then."

    Hawkes takes his pistol unloaded unless Sjon will fly it over.  "Watch for sharks and crocs in these waters.  I expect we aint clan to them," Hawkes kids.

    Do you need an athletics check for swimming or anything like that?

    'ere we go!


    Sam leads the party undetected to the starboard side of the ship.  The party peeks up out of the water like a swamp gnome from another life




    Perception results
    DC 10+
    Crispy and all hear the sound of several pirates engaged a rowdy game of cards or dice up on the deck.  It sounds like at least 4+ and both men and women mixed.  All can hear the sound of a mandolin being played.

    DC15+
    Sjon, Sam and Hawkes can tell the mandolin is coming from the bow of the ship



    There is a man walking patrol on the poop deck at the stern



    and there are both gamblers (in red) and a pair of tiefling whores (yellow), presumably from port






    DC20+
    Hawkes and Sam spot a featherless parakeet up in the rigging near the crow's nest.  It is plucking at its own feathers and muttering to itself, "Bad bird, Unfeather, Unfeather, bad bird"




    DC25+
    only Sam's keen senses pick up the snoring sounds also coming from the stern.  he can hear 2 distinct snoring patterns

    red pirates on their side


    @JOE - your get the Aquaman token until you find a new pic






    party = blue
    enemy pirates = red
    NPCs = yellow

    Go ahead and roll initiative just for sequence but you are still out of combat until you do something that attracts their attention

    Athletics to climb, let's call it 20ft from the water to get over the deck rails. 15ft to climb up far enough to get LoS\LoE on red pirates

    Athletics. Your Strength (Athletics) check covers
    difficult situations you encounter while climbing,
    jumping, or swimming. Examples include the
    following activities:
    • You attempt to climb a sheer or slippery cliff, avoid
    hazards while scaling a wall, or cling to a surface
    while something is trying to knock you off.


    Climbing is 1/2 move speed, like difficult terrain, unless you have a climb speed

    DC 15 athletics since there are no good hand holds, the side of the boat is wet, you are wet.... unless you find something to climb up Rolling Eyes


    I will assume that initiative won't really start until Crispy's distraction.  Let me know if anyone wants to do anything else before the fireworks

    initiative

    ** Crispy distraction **

    Crispy will use his Elemental Attunement to create a flaming dragon shape with a 1’ wingspan hovering 15’ over the Cog at T-10. (If he needs to reposition himself to achieve LOS please advise)
    Elemental Attunement
    You can use your action to briefly control elemental forces nearby, causing one of the following effects of your choice:
    Create a harmless, instantaneous sensory effect related to air, earth, fire, or water, such as a shower of sparks, a puff of wind, a spray of light mist, or a gentle rumbling of stone.
    Instantaneously light or snuff out a candle, a torch, or a small campfire.
    Chill or warm up to 1 pound of nonliving material for up to 1 hour.
    Cause earth, fire, water, or mist that can fit within a 1-foot cube to shape itself into a crude form you designate for 1 minute.
