ShieldHero-Emila Wellheart   150d ago

[center [h3 Emila Wellheart]]

[center [b Emila was in a wagon with her pack of books near her. Again she was writing into her notebooks. She had a scattered mess spread around, one was a novel she was working upon. Another? Was an Arcana theory she was working on, interacting with other planes. The last? Was simply her daily journal. She placed the quill pen against the notebook though her hands shown no motion she let out a sigh.]]

[center [+orange I could use some enchanted parchment.. Perhaps something that won't wear so easily.]]

[center [b She lets out a soft exhale of air. She held her legs close holding them close to her chest. Her soft features pressed on the side of her knee. Her mind had begun to wander and spiral yet again. Her hands began to shake for a moment before she clenched her small hand into a fist.]]

[center [+orange Gundren.. Rockseeker is it true you've made a breakthrough? Could it be what I need?]]

[center [b She laid her pack on the wooden floorboard before pressing her face upon it. She was sure that she had tracked down his caravan. Perhaps she'd be able to catch up with him soon enough at least.. She had hoped so.]]

For any nosy DnD nerds the world will be altered for sure. Though this is just for me so yeah
ShieldHero-Adrian Fellstar   150d ago

[center [h3 Adrian Fellstar]]

[center [b This was Adrian's first job away from his family. Here was.. Leading a wagon of Ox serving as rear guard to a small caravan.]]

[center [+red Gundren you bastard.. Leaving me with the ox that stink to high heaven. It may not exactly be a glamorous job but.. I'll do it my way. Than maybe..]]

[center [b Adrian took his large blade out as he looked into the cold reflection of steel. His face was somber for a moment before he let a cheerful grin out.]]

[center [+red Oh let's be honest.. I'm just grouchy I've got no one to talk to! Heh.. Than again that's more cash for me right?]]

[center [b Before Adrian could find a way to entertain himself on the path he saw.. What was that? A wreck of wood and blood? A broken down carriage with a diseased horse and arrows were scattered everywhere on the scene.]]

[center [+red Whoa whoa! Down down!]]

[center [b Adrian had stopped the Oxen. Jumping off the carriage with surprising agility for his large frame he planted his feet on the firm soil. His blade held tightly in both of his hands.]]

[center [+orange Haha ma look! Look! He can't even learn a simple cantrip!]]

[center [b Adrian had begun to look around for the phantom voice. A bit of frustration in his formerly cheery eyes. Nothing?]]

[center [+red Heh.. I've really gotta stop drinking.]]

[center [b Making his way to the wagon he began to look around trying to find some clues. Maybe he'd Investigate and put together what was going on here.]]

ShieldHero-Flint Sparx   150d ago

[center [h3 Flint Sparx]]

[center [b In the shadows and brush was not the source of the wagon's misfortune. However it was trouble brewing all the same. The young would be swashbuckler Flint Sparx had laid in waiting.]]

[center [+yellow The intel should be good.. I'm sure he should have Gundren right..? Damn it no.. Whatever that secret is I'm sure it's worth a fortune. Still.. Maybe he's got some information.. Perhaps even some coin.]]

[center [b Flint grew up a sea loving rogue. Many would call such a man a pirate. Himself? He'd simply say it was high risk trading. Drawing his rapier he crept in the shadow's of the brush careful as could be. Normally Flint was as silent as the grave. However it appeared fate had other plans as his boot cleaved into a branch. Causing a nice and crunchy snapping sound. Adrian raised up toward the direction of the noise with his massive blade drawn. "Crap.. I'd rather not face that brute head on.." Flint had to think and he needed to think fast.]]

[center [+red Who goes there? If you were the cause of this noble beast death! You'll have recompense to pay!]]

[center [b "Recompense? Who talked like that? Was this brute somehow.. A noble? How quaint still.. If I don't think of something I'll be six foot under soon enough. That's hardly fair recompense for a crime I haven't committed! Well.. One I haven't yet anyway."]]

ShieldHero-Eclaire Vallière   150d ago

[center [h3 Eclair Valliere]]

[center [b The young Aasimar woman was running through the thick of the brush. Her blade and shield drawn blood across her blade her white wings looming over her chainmail.]]

[center [+grey I am sorry beast but you must pay for the sin's you've committed.]]

[center [b She was in pursuit of a goblin. She saw it flee from the scene of the crime though she wasn't sure what had occurred. She couldn't let such an act go unleashed upon the world. It may be only one small crime in a world of many blights but she couldn't let this slight go regardless. Her soft features had resembled that of freshly fallen snow. Her ashen hair and pure expression had clashed in stark contrast with the blood upon her blade. Dashing through the forest it wasn't long before the brutish young woman found herself back at the scene of the crime. This time a man with a large weapon was.. Threatening a bush?]]

[center [+grey You weren't here before... You wouldn't have anything to do with what happened here would you?]]

[center [+red What! I'm as confused as you! You can't accuse strangers like that..]]

[center [b Flint had jumped out of the bushes with the nimbleness of a youthful gazelle. With a twirl of flashing steel and flashing white pearls as he offered the young beautiful Aasimar a smile.]]

[center [+yellow An angel to deliver me a sinner? Had I known of such an opportunity I may have attended my sermons more closely dear.]]

[center [+red Hey! What are you doing sneaking around! You can't talk to a stranger like that!]]

[center [+yellow Says the oafish brute who draws steel upon a complete stranger yes?]]

[center [+grey Huh..?]]

[center [b The air was silent with all parties holding weapons drawn. The air was so thick with tension it felt as if it could be cut with a knife. Though it hadn't lasted terribly long. The creaking of wheels and the bumps of wood. Another.. Wagon? An elven woman was thrown out of said wagon? Her frame was slender and her knife ears were long. Her brown hair parted across her face as the papers were strewn everywhere. She had desperately tried to gather them as the man driving the wagon scowled with an expression of both fear and anger.]]

[center [i You said nothing about any corpses on the road lass! I didn't sign up for this!]]

[center [+orange What?! I hardly could foresee such an event could I? Was I supposed to receive a divination before coming than ser?]]

[center [b Her voice was sharp and her tone was rather formal. Though that had hardly mattered to the man as he was already driving the opposite way. As she collected her displaced papers she placed her pack upon her back. Dusting herself off she turned around to see.. Three strangers an a armed standoff.]]

[center [+orange You aren't bandits are you? That would just.. Really be the icing on the cake ya know? Maybe I should have gotten that divination..]]
ShieldHero-Adrian Fellstar   150d ago

[center [h3 Skirmish in the brush]]

[center [youtube]]

[center [b Adrian's investigation was going so well before this interruption. He even had a lead of where to find Gunder but now this? Who were these people?]]

[center [+yellow I see, if such talks of divinity can cause beautiful women to be hurled at me. Call me a devout believer.]]

[center [b Flint had waltzed over offering Emila a rather flirtatious smile and a bow. Emilia had rather awkwardly offered the man a stiff handshake.]]

[center [+brown Emila! Emila Wellheart! You?]]

[center [+yellow Not the welcome I was pining for but-]]

[center [b Before he could respond both Emila and Flint took a sharp turn to the forest. Adrian had lowered his guard rather confused. The angelic woman seemed to be studying this social encounter herself. Adrian was lost in thought for a moment. "Was this guy.. For real?" though that thought was cut off as 4 goblins attacked these pack of strangers! Two with bows drawn the other with shortswords. Adrian was looking around confused he was clearly cut off guard. Eclair had looked around with rather docile doe eyes trying to scan for her targets. She had seemed just as confused as Adrian though she seemed less expressive about the ordeal. Emila had drawn her wand and dagger. Her senses were sharp and so were Flint's they were ready to act.]]

[center [b The archers were quick to draw their bows. In unison they had attacked the surprised parties! One striking at Adrian! The other shot his arrow spiraling through the air toward Eclair!]]

[center [b One arrow Adrian had narrowly dodged even in his panicked state. The other arrow? Eclair never knew for it went hurling into the forest to gods only knew where. Adrian had saw the arrow fly by. Shaking his head he held his sword close recomposing himself. He was in control but he didn't have enough time to move and strike but at least he was focused now.]]

[center [b One of the goblins wielding a shortsword came running in slashing at Adrian! With bestial tenacity the sword came with a direct and forward thrust. Though the goblin had fumbled swiping at nothing but air. Adrian had looked at the beast before he began to sputter out in laughter.]]

[center [+red Haha! Wow you aren't good at this huh?]]

[center [b Flint had used Adrian as a distraction. "Remember.. A foe is most vulnerable when you use misdirection. Let them focus on the big oaf Flint." running beside the goblin fighting Adrian he lunged his rapier forward. However the goblin raised his small buckler parrying the blow back. Flint had cursed under his breath with a flourish of steel upon the air.]]

[center [+yellow Gave myself away for nothing..]]

[center [b And as Flint said the second sword wielding goblin came towards Flint. With unwieldy charge and a flail of it's arm it took it's small blade crashing it's sword across his shoulder! Blood spilled as Flint stumbled a bit. His vison began to blur a bit.]]

[center [+yellow D-Damn it.. Come on Flint stand up straight you damned fool..]]

[center [b Eclair had saw the wounded rogue and blood splattered across the soil. She had slapped her own cheeks looking forward toward her enemies.]]

[center [+grey Ugh..]]

[center [b She grunted under her breath she, Eclair wouldn't let anyone die. Not when she could do something about it. That's why she was here right..? To help others? "No Eclair don't think just focus!"]]

[center [b Emila had surveyed the battlefield. She couldn't use burning hands because Flint was flanking one of the melee fighters. She had taken her wand out with a glint of fire at the tip of the wood had appeared.]]

[center [+brown Fire bolt!]]

[center [b She had attacked the goblin that Flint was attempting to strike. Her bolt had flown through the air at sluggish speeds. The goblin had taken the bolt in it's buckler slinging it back near Emila's feet. She stared down the goblin with frustration in her eyes.]]

[center [b The archers had began to shoot upon the back lines! Both moving ten feet closer. One had shot at the wounded Flint while the other shot at Emila! Emilia had put a magical shield up blocking the arrow at her just in time. The shield would last for a bit longer. (till the end of her next turn.) Flint had pushed his battered body to step to the side with a sharp turn narrowly avoiding the arrow.]]

[center [b Adrian had seen Flint bleeding.. Badly. Again he could hear ringing and.. That phantom voice.. That was no phantom. It was a memory.]]

[center [+yellow "You're a disgrace on the Fellstar's. You-]]

[center [b Adrian took a deep breath "I won't let him die.. Just because of my stupid insecurities!" Adrian planted his foot on the ground. The man with a cheery smile began to let his veins bulge. His eyes gave way to.. Anger and pure rage.]]

[center [+red Raaaaaagh!]]

[center [b Adrian had taken his large blade swinging it upon the goblin that had hurt Flint. Stranger as he was.. Adrian wouldn't let someone die a cold and brutal death out here in the wild. Filled with righteous fury he pushed onward.]]

[center [b The goblin tried to block the massive blade. With a sneer he kicked the small beast in the stomach. As it reeled he raised his blade in the air with murderous intent in his eyes. Slamming his foot firmly on the ground. Putting all of his weight into a downward arc his blade came crashing into the earth fueled by savage rage. The blade easily crushed and slashed through the goblin almost as if it was cutting butter. (Crit 20 damage jeez) blood and viscera could be seen flying as his blade crashed into the dirt sending mud and soil flying. Flint looked rather shocked as did the others. Flint's only thought was "Glad I'm not that pile of.. Whatever that is right now." Flint couldn't let him do all the fighting however. He had moved on over to attack the goblin Eclair was fighting! It was distracted from it's strike against her. He would take this chance to hopefully deal some heavy damage this time. However in his battered state? The goblin had parried him with it's buckler much like the other. Panting and bleeding Flint wasn't sure what to do next. The goblin had twirled it's blade in a counterattack! The blade came slashing down at his neck! Flint saw his whole world flash for a moment. Barely stepping back just in time as the blade barely missed his throat he began to pant and breathe even heavier.]]

[center [+yellow Damn that was close..]]

[center [b Ecliar held her shield up as she gripped her longsword tightly. With a brandish of steel she lifted her steel up. Unlike a flourish of steel her body had spun in one graceful circle. Though looks could be deceiving, behind that graceful spinning strike? Was pure brute force, no misdirection she'd slash right past his defenses if she could manage. The defensive buckler wielding gob however had ducked under her strike with relative ease as she spun a little too far almost clumsily tripping in her strike. Emila had taken the chance to attack the same goblin with yet another fire bolt! Only to have it deflected yet again!]]

ShieldHero-Adrian Fellstar   150d ago

[center [h3 Battle Rages On]]

[center [b The archers fire at Flint and Emila yet again! Emila using the last bit of her magic blocks the arrow again. Flint dodging the arrow yet again, the rogue was now gambling with his life on this battlefield.]]

[center [b Adrian had clashed with another goblin using a headbutt to knock them out. Flint had parried and struggled against that swordsman before Adrian had came to the rescue. Eclaire and Flint had closed the distance between the two archers! Emila had shot one with a firebolt wounding them. Eclair who had been clumsily missing her strikes before finally cut down the archer! Flint had managed to knock out the other himself. Eclair had stabilized them as Adrian tied them up.]]

[center [+yellow Uhm.. Any reason we are saving the lives of goblins that tried to kill us..?]]

[center [+red I don't.. Wanna kill unless I have too.]]

[center [+yellow Says the guy who squashed one like a bug!]]

[center [+grey All life is precious..]]

[center [+brown Yeah I'm not one to act like a brute, besides they may have some info! I need to ask about a Gunther Rockseeker.]]

[center [+yellow Huh? I'm looking for that ol dwarf myself.]]

[center [+grey Is he... In danger?]]

[center [+red Well.. From what I investigated before.. He might be. Here let's rest and wait for these guys to wake up. Seems we all have questions to ask them than. Oh.. By the way the names Adrian.. Adrian Fellstar.]]

[center [+grey Eclair.. Eclair Valliere.]]

[center [+brown Emila.. Emila Wellheart.]]

[center [+yellow Huff.. Huff.. Flint Sparx.. Though the ladies can call me whatever they want.]]

[center [b He said with a wink as he winced in pain. The group had all sat down. Emila had used her natural recovery to regain a bit of magic. With that magic she had casted on herself Mage Armor. It would last for the next eight hours and it sounded like she would be needing it today.]]

[center [h3 OOC]]
I'll probably have the monsters roll for aggro instead of making them target squishies like I have. I'll give the party inspiration of D4 each since I just made them have a super hard battle by solely targeting the squishies.
ShieldHero-Eclaire Vallière   150d ago

[center [h3 Resting Up]]

[center [b As the party rested awaiting for the goblins to awaken Elcair had sneezed softly. Rubbing her nose softly she looks up at the others. Adrian smiles offering her a handerchief.]]

[center [+red So I know you are all looking for Gunther but.. Can I ask why?]]

[center [+brown Oh? Asking a lady you've just met her secrets huh?]]

[center [+red What no I.. Well... I just.. He might have been kidnapped. I took a job to look after the stubborn fellow, he's loud but.. He's a hard worker.]]

[center [+brown Hm, you're making sure I'm not here to hurt him than huh? I'll say this.. I need his help. That and.. Honestly I'm curious of this breakthrough he's made in Phandilin. What of you Flint? Any reason to be here? Besides getting yourself killed while flirting with women?]]

[center [+yellow Hey, sorry I didn't have magic to protect me. Why I'm here? I.. Well.. I've been hired to look after Gunther too.]]

[center [+red You have..?]]

[center [+yellow Sure! By his family, they couldn't expect just one brute to protect him after all.]]

[center [b (Flint rolled 20+4=24 deception. No one's insight came close.)]]

[center [+red Oh.. I suppose that makes sense.. But I did more of the heavy lifting that last fight!]]

[center [+yellow Yeah yeah big guy I know.. Trust me I'm just warming up you'll see.]]

[center [b Eclair listened to the group talk bit by bit. She hadn't enjoyed conversation like this since the monastery and even than.. This was more casual than she was used too.]]

[center [+grey I'd like to help you, to save this Gunther if he's in danger.]]

[center [+red Wait.. You're not looking for him?]]

[center [b Eclair shakes her head as Adrian blinks a bit at her. She tilts her head as she looks up at the large male with large doe eyes.]]

[center [+red Heh.. Guess you're just a good person aren't cha?]]

[center [+grey I.. Am?]]

[center [+red Well yeah.. But you're an Aasimar right? I hear you guys are like divine protectors!]]

[center [+grey Not.. All of us.. And not everyone see's us this way. I haven't had my celestial revelation yet.. But I do hope to spread the light of Radiance upon the world.]]

[center [+red The light of Radiance huh? Forgive me saying this but.. You seem rather... Soft spoken. Almost.. Oh nevermind where are my manners! Were strangers after all!]]

[center [+yellow Hey if you're too much of a coward to ask her out I will.]]

[center [+red What?! N-No it wasn't like that!]]

[center [+grey Ask me.. Out? Aren't we going out soon? I recommend we are all ready for combat.]]

[center [+brown No dear what these boys mean is.. Well never mind you'll learn in due time I suppose.]]

[center [+red Hey leave me out of that! It's all Flint!]]

[center [h3 OOC]]

Glad I have a dynamic and characters made. After lost mines of phandelver I have another adventure I wanna run with them. They'll have to reset back at LV 1 for that adventure though
Actually I may run that other adventure instead.
But if I come back here they will have 75EXP when they start that other dungeon.
ShieldHero-Adrian Fellstar   145d ago

[center [h3 Asking a few questions.]]

[center [b Adrian takes the goblin's weapons (two short bows and two short swords and 4 leather armors and 4 shields.) to the side. Adrian carried many packs and such, his large frame and brute force allowed for ease of use when carrying such items. Adrian hadn't bothered tying the remaining 3 goblins up. Without weapons and with 1 dead would they be much a threat? An hour had passed by and beside the initial opening each member was quietly resting.]]

[center [b Flint was twirling a dagger practicing his throws upon a tree. Emlia was lost in her tombs and Adrian had taken a nap himself. Eclaire though had kept watch on the goblins.]]

[center [b They had one by one all begun to stir awake.]]

[center [+green Agh.. Where are we.. Ahh! Prepare to fight! Huh? My weapon and.. Ahh he's still squished!]]

[center [+grey Calm down, I have offered you're friend a prayer. I'm sorry we couldn't resolve things peacefully sooner.]]

[center [+yellow I'm not damn things tried to skewer me!]]

[center [b Adrian had shot awake from his cat nap. Hearing the conversation before he waltzed over. He wasn't sure how to feel.. Had he felt bad? Killing that goblin? He had never killed anything or anyone before. Yet he was in such a rage before.. He could hardly remember. Flint had a point they were going to kill him. Yet Eclaire seemed to treasure life. Adrian couldn't blame her.]]

[center [+red Yeah.. I agree that you shouldn't have tried to attack us like that though.]]

[center [+green Klarg said kill all followers! Loot steal kill!]]

[center [+red Klarg..?]]

[center [+brown Interesting..]]

[center [b Emila had analyzed them closely for a moment.]]

[center [+brown It must be part of the goblin hierarchy.]]

[center [b History roll to understand lore. Nat 1. Emila had... Begun to simply drift off distracted by her own ignorance of the subject. She wanted to know more but it was clear that despite a researcher she knew nothing about goblins!]]

[center [b Adrian's history roll. 13+3=16.]]

[center [+red Is he a hobgoblin? Or perhaps a bugbear? How many of you are there?]]

[center [+grey Please.. Don't be afraid we can help you.. For the better.]]

[center [+red You aren't entirely wrong Eclaire, Goblin hierarchy can be a nasty business with the smaller weaker beast crushed. That.. Isn't fair you should be allowed to grow and choose you're own way of life.]]

[center [b Eclaire's Persuasion 8. Adrian, 6. Though they weren't.. Entirely convincing Adrian's knowledge seemed to have served him well enough.]]

[center [+green Klarg is.. A cruel bugbear as you say. The base has no less than twenty of us.. Cragmaw hideout. If you goes you handle Klarg.. We's be free?]]

[center [+red More free than a kite my friend, as long as you don't follow down this dark path. Fight for what you believe in okay? There are plenty of ways to make money trust me. Head to Phandelver tell them.. A Fellstar sent you (Using Noble background)]]

[center [+green I.. We shall but we's will be careful!]]

[center [b The goblin's had than begun to share everything they know with these strangers. Afterwards Adrian through a pack over his shoulders, ready to head down the trail he had studied before. "A hidden trail.." the goblin's had confirmed his investigation before. Emila had raised a hand.]]

[center [+brown Stop! I wanna find Gunther Rockseeker as well but.. We can't go like this. Flint was badly hurt today and I know he's bounced back but that has to of warn him out. You are doing well and so is Eclaire I know.. But my magic's all out. I can only cast simple cantrips now.]]

[center [+red You're coming with?]]

[center [+brown Of course! I said I needed to find him didn't I? Besides they haven't killed him.. They need his secret whatever it is. I know it's cruel to say we should rest but if we charge in and die.. Who does that help?]]

[center [+red Damn it! I can't just wait here I..]]

[center [+grey Please sir Adrian Fellstar. Let us exercise caution yes? Patience is a virtue.]]

[center [+yellow You heard the pretty ladies big guy, besides I was hired for the same job as you. I won't let my charge die so easy.. Else I won't get paid.]]

[center [+red Coin over character huh? Fine! But we leave first thing in the morning!]]

[center [+yellow Yeah yeah mr hot air and righteous fury.]]

[center [+brown So Flint.. Pretty ladies huh? Is that what you insist on calling me boy?]]

[center [+yellow Don't call me boy! Besides I say it how I see it lass! You're a fine lady, fine enough for any swashbuckler.]]

[center [+brown A swashbuckler's prize than hmm? I should be flattered I suppose? I'll admit though as a scholar I am interested in learning you're way of life.]]

[center [+yellow Oh I can show you plenty my dear~]]

[center [+red Okay good night!]]

[center [b Eclaire takes a rather polite bow to the group.]]

[center [+grey Good night my comrade's it was an honor to fight beside you today.]]

[center [+yellow Sound like you're giving you're final death speech..]]

[center [b Emilia had nudged him hard with her elbow.]]

[center [+brown Quiet! Poor girl doesn't understand! Be a gentleman won't cha?!]]

[center [h3 OOC Flavor]]
Survival for how well each one sets up tent.

Adrian: 10 - Average
Emilia: 14 Moderate Skill
Flint: 12 Slightly above average
Eclaire: 1 (not nat 1 but 1 all together) TERRIBLE and will probably need help from Emila who knows what she is doing best.

[center OOC]
This is more so for fun so the writing won't be up to par but that is okay.
ShieldHero-Emila Wellheart   122d ago

[center [h3 Guidance]]

[center [b Emilia had looked over to see Eclaire. She appeared still and motionless.. Almost like a doll staring at her tent. It was only a few moments before her tent had collapsed completely. Emilia had chuckled lightly before heading on over. She began to prop her tent up rifling through to stand it straight.]]

[center [+brown Oh dear, you're not much of a camper are you?]]

[center [+grey ...I'm sorry lady Emilia.]]

[center [+brown Lady? Oh I'm no noble dear.. It's no trouble though really. I may be a bookworm but I actually enjoy this sorta thing believe it or not.]]

[center [+grey You do? .. Even with the bugs and such?]]

[center [+brown Hmm? Afraid of bugs huh? I wouldn't have guessed that, you seemed so fierce before.]]

[center [b Eclaire had blinked looking at Emilia before turning her head away. Emilia had placed a hand over her lips giggling softly.]]

[center [+brown Aww, it's okay we've all got weakness's dear.]]

[center [b Adrian had looked over at the two with a warm smile. Before looking over at Flint. Adrian's tent was.. Suitable but nothing to write home about. Flint's tent however seemed rather put together. Flint had given Adrian a bit of a grin before heading into his tent. "What was that about?" Adrian shook his head with a snort. He was normally rather cool headed despite his given fighting style. Still something about that guy rubbed him the wrong way..]]

[center [b The party begins to long rest!]]
ShieldHero-Adrian Fellstar   122d ago

[center [h3 The Dream]]

[center [pic]] 

[center [b Here a young boy laid on the grass hills beside his home. The young boy possessed a red tint in his eyes with ashen hair. Looking up from his book he gazed upon the Fellstar residence. Beautiful and immaculate a manor with a pure white coat of paint on every corner several stories tall. With gardens adorning it's yard's and acres of land. Adrian Fellstar felt a sense of pride when looking to his family home. Yet he felt this pit of.. Crushing weight all at once. Placing his book down beside his wooden sword he looked down the green pastures near his home. He saw instructors and mentors looking around calling for a name. Though he couldn't hear from the large hill he knew exactly who they were calling for.]]

[center [b Taking a deep breath he let himself fall into his thoughts for a moment. This however hadn't lasted terribly long before a woman's face was peering down at him. Looking back at the bark of the tree behind him he lifted his head upward. To see a young girl with ashen hair staring at him. Her legs wrapped around the tree as she hung like a bat with a grin as big as a mischievous gremlin.]]

[center [+blue Ahh! Don't scare me like that Veronica!]]

[center [pic]]

[center [+purple Hey, maybe if you knew how to cast detect magic.. You'd realized I was using pass without a trace.]]

[center [+blue Yeah yeah Veronica I know.. Actually I was studying for that very reason ya know.]]

[center [+purple Haha is that so? Well I must say I'm proud of you little bro! Though do you need that thing to do so?]]

[center [b Uncurling her legs around the bark of wood. She began her decent with an elegant flip. Turning around she flashed a smug smile and a rather dorky thumbs up. Before she turning her long pale slender arm to point at his wooden sword.]]

[center [+blue Pfft, you're ridiculous!]]

[center [b He chuckled at her little "display" before grabbing the wooden blade. He had a soft smile as he ran his fingers across the smooth wood.]]

[center [+blue I don't know it's just.. Relaxing I suppose.]]

[center [+purple Yeah I know.. Ya know you worry mother when you run off like this.]]

[center [b She had crouched to match eye level with the young male. He offered a somber smile before exhaling softly.]]

[center [+blue Yeah.. I'm aware..]]

[center [b The soft spoken male held his head low for a moment. Though that was to change when he heard a sharp tone cut through the air.]]

[center [pic]]

[center [+grey At least you can't embarrass father when our guest are over.]]

[center [+purple Silus!]]

[center [+grey Well it's the truth isn't it? Today's is the Mark exams among Radiance's Nobles after all. Or have you forgotten to prepare to sister? What good is a Fellstar who can't even use magic. That uses all of his time on this stupid thing!]]

[center [b Silus, was a bit taller than Adrian with a more slender frame. His eyes tinted red with white hair just like his siblings. He had kicked Adrian's wooden sword down the hill. Adrian had shot up grabbing Silus by the collar of his shirt.]]

[center [+blue Leave me alone!]]

[center [+grey Hah! The runt wants a fight huh? You know how that went last.. Don't you?]]

[center [b Those words rung out.. Again and again and again. "Don't you don't you.. Don't you... Don't you.. Don't you know I wish you were never born!"]]

[center [h3 Awakening]]

[center [b Adrian had shot up panting heavily. He was shirtless taking a deep breath. Where the hell was he again? Oh yeah.. He was sleeping.. It was time to head out to Cragmaw wasn't it? "Damn it Adrian.. You can't be getting caught up in the past now."]]

[center [h3 Setting Out To Cragmaw.]]

[center [b Adrian had was busy getting dressed in the tent rustling around. Eclaire with the aid of Emila had her own tent packed and ready to go along with Emilia's. Flint was still packing a few of his things up as he looked over at the two girls.]]

[center [+yellow I thought I heard some heavy rustling last night. If either of you need some warm company throughout the night as a gentleman I'd be happy to oblige.]]

[center [b Emilia had smirked looking his way as she placed a finger under her lip.]]

[center [+purple Oh my, a gentleman you say? Well I slept rather well last night. I'm fairly certain the rustling you heard was Adrian last night. Perhaps you'd keep him warm instead?]]

[center [b Flint had groaned as he finished packing. Eclaire had blinked looking toward Emilia and back to Flint.]]

[center [+grey If you ever require warmth sir Flint I can be of aid.]]

[center [+yellow ..What? No that's what I'm supposed to- Ahh nevermind you don't get it.]]

[center [b Flint's cheeks were a bit flushed as Emila giggled lightly. Adrian had finally shot out of the tent.]]

[center [+red I'm up! Aww! You guys are all ready to go huh?]]

[center [+purple That we are dear, that's okay I can help you back up. Eclaire dear will you help with the heavy lifting?]]

[center [+grey Of course lady Emilia.]]

[center [+purple Oh stop that hun, Emilia is plenty I've told you before.]]

[center [b With the three of them packing up went by rather quick. Adrian had started to take the front with Flint closely behind him. It was about.. Ten miles in as Flint groaned a bit.]]

[center [+yellow You sure you're heading the right way? I think letting the big dumb brute lead was a bad idea.]]

[center [+red Dumb brute huh? Emilia give us a question anything go for it.]]

[center [b Emila ponders for a moment before asking.]]

[center [+purple Okay what is.. Evocation magic?]]

[center [b Head to head arcana check!]]

[center [+red Er well-]]

[center [+yellow The school of evocation magic deals with spells that manipulated energy or tap an unseen source of power in order to produce a desired end. In effect, they created something out of nothing. Many of these spells produced spectacular effects, and evocation spells can be incredibly dangerous if not handled properly.]]

[center [b Flint's tone was rather "snooty" but yet it held the elegance of a proper noble almost. If only for that moment, Adrian had grunted for a moment before thinking.]]

[center [+red Okay ask us a history question.]]

[center [b Emilia rolled 13 on history to think of something! She placed a finger under her chin.]]

[center [+purple What can you tell me of.. The kingdom of Many Arrows?]]

[center [+yellow Well.. It's an orc kingdom yes?]]

[center [+red The kingdom of many arrows is a kingdom of orcs and half orcs. Though mostly neutral they are known for rather chaotic behavior.]]

[center [+yellow Which makes them poor at trading with nearby neighbors!]]

[center [+red Hah, nope they actually manage to maintain relations with neighbors. In order to sustain trading despite their wild attitude domestically.]]

[center [+purple That's correct Adrian! Wow I'm ashamed to admit but.. I thought you were brawn over brain myself.]]

[center [+red Oh? Gee thanks! Heh.. No it's fine I get that a lot.]]

[center [+yellow Yeah but only a fool reveals his hand so soon.]]

[center [+red What? I stood to benefit playing the fool? Well that'd be dishonest don't you think?]]

[center [+purple Aww, still naive huh? I think it's sweet though.]]

[center [+yellow "Sweet" doesn't keep you alive.]]

[center [+red Heh, says the one who almost bit the big one yesterday.]]

[center [b Flint had glared at Adrian as he stuck his tongue back out at him. Eclaire had started to walk in front of both of them.]]

[center [+grey No need to fight, we are allies yes?]]

[center [+red Well, maybe some of us don't see it that way. You're right though Eclaire.]]

[center [b Eclaire had her wings strung with her sword and shield out taking the point. Adrian looked toward her. "I wonder what it's like.. Growing up an Aasimar? She seems so.. Serious."]]

[center [+red So Eclaire.. What do you do for fun?]]

[center [+grey Fun?]]

[center [+red Ya know.. To pass the time? Enjoy yourself?]]

[center [+grey Oh.. Uhm..]]

[center [+red Oh come on, this is a joke right? You can't tell me you don't have fun.]]

[center [+grey A.. Joke? Well.. I exercise regularly.]]

[center [+red I can tell!]]

[center [+yellow Yeah Adrian can't stop checking out you're "fit form."]]

[center [+red W-What?! N-No! I just mean.. You're clearly in shape!]]

[center [b Flint had chuckled as Eclaire tilted her head in confusion at both of the males.]]

[center [+grey Fit form? If that is a compliment I thank both of you I do train very hard. I also enjoy studying medicine and communing in prayer.]]

[center [+yellow Oh.. So you're boring?]]

[center [+red Flint! Eclaire that sounds very nice. With medicine you can help others I think that's noble. Plus with the way you train and with that shield.. You seem to look out for others don't cha?]]

[center [b Eclaire had blinked looking at them both for a moment.]]

[center [+grey Yes.. But I am more curious about fun.. And this joke you spoke of.]]

[center [+red Oh Eclaire, I must say I'm curious how you grew up if you don't know those things.]]

[center [b Eclaire had gripped her arm for a moment looking away.]]

[center [+grey Well I.. It's hard to explain.]]

[center [b Adrian can tell he had struck a nerve. He gave an apologetic smile as he raised his hands up for a moment.]]

[center [+red No I'm sorry that was thoughtless of me. I know from experience not everybody has the best of upbringings. I'll focus on finding cragmaw.]]

[center [+purple That sounds good, next time perhaps we can teach Eclaire a few things yes?]]

[center [+yellow Oh I'd love too~]]

[center [+purple Pfft, seems Eclaire isn't THAT boring to you than.]]

[center [b With some simple banter back and forth the party had ventured another ten miles. Eventually coming to Cragmaw itself. It appeared to be a cave with stalemites inside. Adrian had began to venture in the cave but Flint had stopped him.]]

[center [+yellow I think I'd serve best as a scout. I'll stay 30 feet ahead, if I see trouble I'll head back to you three.]]

[center [+red What..? Are you sure?]]

[center [+yellow Yeah, this is the sorta thing I excel at trust me.]]

[center [b The blonde flashed a confident smile as he went into the cave first followed by the rest of his party.]]
ShieldHero-Flint Sparx   118d ago

[center [h3 Entering Cragmaw]]

Adventure Book description 
[center [b Following the goblins’ trail, you come across a large cave in a hillside  from the scene of the ambush. A shallow stream flows out of the cave mouth, which is screened by dense briar thickets. A narrow dry path leads into the cave on the right-hand side of the stream.]]

[center [b There appears to be thickets further in? It almost looked like a small woodland area with light from outside? How was that possible? Flint had stopped as they passed through the entrance to see a river passing through. It was shallow enough and the only way to pass through.]]

DC15 perception check/hearing past the waterfall.

[center [b There was also a waterfall in this open area of brush and grass. ]]

[center [b The waterfall is overwhelming to anyone's hearing even Flint's sharp sense of hearing. However.. Adrian had taken a deep breath managing to focus a bit and drown the waterfall out.]]

[center [+yellow We can cross the river from here.]]

[center [+red Yes but.. I hear some voices.. Goblin's most likely. Down the river..]]

[center [+yellow Well.. I can always try and sneak up on them. When I get the drop on them you all rush in and attack.]]

[center [b Adrian Eclaire Emila all try to be "quiet" crossing the river as Flint goes on ahead looking for the voices. It isn't long before they see a guard post. Though Adrian manages to stay quiet both of the girls end up splashing about with each step. Two goblin's in the thickets of the post stand up. They began to draw their bows until.. Flint ambushes the from the thicket! Jumping in surprise the goblins scramble for thier bows shouting in goblin.]]

[center [+yellow Now I've got you!]]

Rest of the party 20 feet away (Difficult terrain)

[center [b Flint had snuck up and attacked the second goblin! (Dealing 14 damage!) Before it ever got a chance to fight back he stabbed it through the heart from behind. (Dead instantly.) With a twirl of his blade wiping the blood off he looked to the first goblin. Emila glistening with magical armor (mage armor earlier) had fire a bolt of fire magic! Striking into the remaining goblin! (3 damage)
The goblin tried to fire at Flint (With disadvantage.) Rolling 13 all together. Flint had ducked as the arrow just slid off his leather armor. With a sigh of relief the party had begun to counter attack! Eclaire taking the first strike! Shield bashing the goblin with heavy force! (7 damage.) Knocking the goblin out! Using her skills in first aid she began to help the surviving goblin. At first he was bleeding heavily and her hands were.. Trembling? Was she nervous? It looked she wouldn't be able to save him but after tying the wound up and splashing some water on him he seemed to stabilize a bit. Placing him in a comfortable position she stood up looking at the others.]]

[center [+grey Shall we be off?]]

[center [+yellow Why bother sparing these green devils? They'd hardly show us the same mercy.]]

[center [+grey Well.. I..]]

[center [+red Not everyone is out for blood Flint. It's fine Eclaire.]]

[center [+purple Yeah Claire I think it's sweet.]]

[center [+red Claire?]]
[center [+yellow Claire?]]

[center [b Eclaire didn't seem to mind this little nickname. Eclaire had offered a prayer for the fallen as they began to head up north in the cave. The cave slowly grew dark Eclaire clasping her hands together had begun a small prayer.]]

[center [+grey Thou light will guide us through our blight. May our fight help us find what is right.]]

[center [b With a wave of her hand a floating ball of light ha begun to hover over the party. Emila had smiled nodding as Adrian grinned.]]

[center [+red Nice! I really didn't wanna go tripping around here. Thanks Eclaire!]]

For self note they are in area 2 heading to Area 3
ShieldHero-Eclaire Vallière   118d ago

[center [h3 Venture Forth]]

[center [b The group ventures forth seeing on the right hand side.. Was a door. Peering in the door appeared to be a room.. Full of 3 wolves.]]

[center [+red Hmm.. Should we see what's ahead first?]]

[center [+yellow Agreed, we can handle those furbags once our surroundings are secure.]]

[center [+grey I pray it doesn't come to that.]]

[center [+purple I'm not exactly the religious type but I must say I agree with you Claire.]]

[center [b The place was growing rather dark, or at least it would have been dark if not for Claire's light.]]

[center [b Up ahead in the river on the west side was a bridge. On the bridge.. Was a goblin! He was trying to sneak but all four members were able to see him. (He rolled low.) He wasn't trying to attack them but he had saw Eclaire's light sneaking away.]]

[center [+yellow Stop him!]]

[center [b Flint had drawn his bow while Emila drew her book. The two firing at the goblin before it ran off. Would they be able to hit it in time?]]

[center [b Emilia had missed her firebolt but Flint's arrow had hit the goblin just in time! Knocking him out! Flint had taken a deep breath of relief.]]

ShieldHero-Adrian Fellstar   117d ago

[center [b Meeting Sildar]]

[center [b After handling the goblin on the bridge the group begins to move west. There is plenty of rubble to pass and move as the enter the chocked path. Leading into goblin den, many bones had laid around. There was beating that could be heard up ahead. Six goblins and...]]

[center [+red Sildar!]]

[center [b Adrian had taken this job as Gunthers second guard. Sildar was the first.. He looked beaten and terrible. Adrian had gripped his fist as Emilia placed a hand on his shoulder.]]

[center [+purple We must think this through hun.]]

[center [+red Heh.. You're right.]]

[center [b Eclaire's hairs were on end as her fist began to tighten. Her face was still it's usual stoic expression and yet her eyes.. Held a bit of righteous fury and worry.]]

[center [+grey ...]]

[center [+yellow Emilia's right let's try to access the situation first. Let me head in first.]

[center [b Five of the goblins were tending a fire. Flint had began to head in (15 stealth.) Crouching and moving around with deft swiftness. Seeing supplies around he had seen one goblin.. A little meatier than the others near Sildar. Grabbing some rocks he threw them at the cauldren while dashing at the head goblin. (Yeemik.) CLANG CLANG! And a brandish of steel was drawn by Flint.]]

[center [+green A-Ambush!]]

Goblin 2: 8
Goblin 3: 20

[center [b Adrian grinned as he gripped at his claymore. Eclaire was even quicker than him to run in with her longsword and shield. Emila had stayed in the back opening her book.]]

[center [+red Damn Flint! Nice work!]]

[center [b The fourth goblin had shaken his head trying his best to focus on the fight ahead. Adrian ran up into the thick of the fight focusing on the goblin who recollected himself first.]]

[center [+red Now for a good old fashioned brawl!]]

[center [b With a spin of his body and a heavy handed twirl of his massive claymore he knocked the blade out of the goblin's hand! With a simple headbutt and a kick he brought the goblin to it's knee's as he raised his blade for a hilt bash! Knocking the goblin out! Eclaire had gone out and slashed the third goblin around the campfire! (6 damage!) The goblin backed up bleeding rather badly but was still standing.]]

[center [+grey Damn]]

[center [b With a slight grunt she held her sword tightly looking to see Adrian had already knocked one out and quicker than her as well. Emila had fired a firebolt with a wave of her petite hand. Fire forming at her fingertips to fire forward! The wounded goblin had blocked the bolt with his shield! Flint had spun his rapier in a fanciful matter as he struck out in Yeemik in a surprise attack! Stabbing Yeemik in the stomach with a rapid quick jab! But this one was a little tougher than the others!]]

[center [b Yeemik had looked at Flint than to Sildar.]]

[center [+green I'll kill the human if you don't stop now!]]

[center [+yellow I'd figure you'd say that but first you gotta get past me yes? Cowardly tactics such as yours hardly surprise me!]]

[center [+green Grr!]]

[center [b Adrian had swung his blade at the wounded goblin. However his strike was much more desperate than the first. "Kill Sildar?" With a trip and a slip his blade had hit nothing but air! Even though the goblin hadn't moved a muscle! The other goblin's chuckled at the frantic barbarian. Adrian growled a bit at the goblins laughing his way. The goblin had attacked Adrian back! With a heavy hand he took the hilt of his blade and blocked the strike! Shoulder checking the goblin back defensively. Eclaire had taken the chance to run in stabbing the side of the wounded goblin! Losing blood the goblin had fell over unconscious. The fifth Goblin ran to Adrian! The two had clashed for a moment but with one deft move the goblin slid his blade down cutting Adrian's arm! (3 damage.) Adrian held his blade as he began to bleed a bit. Emila had flipped through her books pages a warm aura coming from her fingertips once again.]]

[center [+purple Firebolt!]]

[center [b From across the room she had smashed her fiery energy onto Yeemik! (8 damage.) Sending him to the ground! He was alive but barely with burns on his body. Flint had chuckled, rushing over he had attacked the Goblin distracted by Adrian! (For sneak damage.) It hadn't gone as planned however. The goblin taking it's buckler blocked Flint's quick onslaught!]]

[center [b The first and second goblins had prepared themselves by the cauldron ready to strike back! Attacking with blind fury at Flint and Adrian! Flint had masterfully ducked the sabers edge with a nimble hop back. The second Goblin had slashed into Adrian's shoulder! (4 damage.) Adrian was bleeding more now but he still seemed to be going strong for now.]]

[center [b Adrian came in with another vicious headbutt knocking another goblin out. Eclaire had slashed a goblin dealing some damage. Flint and Emila try to finish that goblin but he manages to dodge duck and weave steel and flame. The goblin's again attacked at Flint and Adrian. The wounded goblin's luck must have been running dry. Swinging blindly as blood fell from the goblin. Adrian tilted his head a bit confused but distracted by this the other remaining goblin had slashed at Flint's leg! Bleeding a bit Flint grunted in pain before gripping his blade tightly. Some of the goblin's had stopped breathing on the battlefield. Adrian however hadn't noticed. Trying to take the wounded goblin's crazed state in mind Adrian had moved forward. With a heavy overhead strike he sent his blade crashing down.. Only for a THUD to be heard. The goblin had snapped to it's senses! Blocking him just in time! Eclaire had moved in shield bashing him with a heavy crash of metal. Knocking that wounded goblin out before he could counter! Flint and Emila had tried to finish the last goblin off! Well before Flint could reel back and draw his blade! Emila had a quick twirl of flame forward! The bolt firing through the goblin's shoulder! Knocking him out rather quickly. Flint had dropped his blade with a soft sigh looking back at Emila.]]

[center [+purple Heh, only fair I finally landed a fair shot. I have to say.. I don't have a lot of combat experience myself.]]

[center [+red Heh.. If it makes you feel better I've only done a lot martial training growing up.]]

[center [b Eclaire and Emila had came down to aid the last two surviving goblins with medicine. Eclaire.. Couldn't save the goblin as he bled out in a bit of compulsions. Eclaire had began to shake a bit as she watched for a moment. Emila saw Eclaire shake a bit seeing all the death around. Though Eclaire had slapped her own cheeks standing back up.]]

[center [+purple I was able to save this one! We can wake him up and ask him a few questions.]]

[center [b Sildar had walked to the group as Eclaire came to Flint and Adrian. She began to heal Flint a bit as Adrian raised his hands with a soft smile.]]

[center [+red If we just rest here with Sildar I'll be okay in a bit with some bandages.]]

[center [+grey You okay Flint..?]]

[center [+yellow What..? I mean.. Y-Yeah sure thanks.]]

[center [b Adrian had walked over holding Sildar up for a moment. Eclaire came over with more healing magic as Sildar raised his own hand.]]

[center Don't waste you're magic on me, you'll need it to face Klarg here. The bugbear in charge of this place.. I'll just rest up here. If you have a few bandages I'll be fine, have you seen Gunther?]

[center [+red No but if we take down Klarg than maybe we can help him.]]

For next time have the party talk to Sildar for a short rest.
