The rope is silk, so it should float ok, and the current might not be as strong in the wider part there, Ryaid ties a loop in the rope and tosses it to Drini. “ Drini, grab the rope, and grab Illixian, you should be able to herd ryker this way ”
if that all goes smoothly, Ryiad will do whatever he can do to help with his end of the rope, either pull them in, or just hold it taught for stability.

Under my breath, I whisper “ok Fatso, more treadmill time for you.” Just in case I need to dive in and rescue Ryker, I will cast Guidance on myself during my standard action and begin removing my backpack during my move action. I will ready my backpack removal based on the outcome of Rykers swim check. I turn to Collin and ask playfully “Dude, which half of you is Orc? The top half?”

Drini manages to get his feet back underneath him, and then tries to grab hold of Ryiad's thrown rope. If he manages to grab it, he will then wrap it around one arm whilst he reaches for Illixian, hoping the the rope is in the right place to stop Ryker from flowing further away.

Survival, One will have an extra 1 due to Guidance cast last round. Perception Rolls (1d20+9=14, 1d20+2=4, 1d20+9=26, 1d20+2=21)
+9 is Survival, +2 perception. I did cast Guidance last round. So it is now off. It only lasts for one minute so if I need to do my survival check later, then I do not get an extra +1 to that check.

As you all wander about the forest, you make some progress, however, when the majority of you feel you should head in one direction, Collin suddenly stops. “Hey you guys? Would it be assumed that the oldest tree would also be the tallest tree?” When he sees each of you nodding as if to say, THINKING: Sure, that could make sense. Collin points through the canopy where he's standing at, When you all stand near him and look, you find that the canopy opens just enough to reveal in the distance the canopy of an enormous darkwood further ahead. You all change course and make for this tree. It's when your on you new heading that you begin to hear bickering to your right. When you close in for a better sight, you see two bugbears arguing over the body of a lumberjack. It seem that they're arguing over who gets what choice parts first. It seems that if left to themselves, that argument could quickly escalate into an all out fight between them. It may be amusing to see.DrizztFan24 wrote:Collin will assist as best as he is able, unfortunately his focus of study was not on woodlands and tracking. However, he was trained to be aware of his environment, and thus may still be of some assisstance.

Ryiad knocks(sp?) an arrow in his bow, and readies a shot.
Locutus seems to agree that these two may verywell do the job for them and reduce their fight. He makes ready with Ryaid's plan.apwhite wrote:“I am not the best at sneaking, but I recommend one of us move closer to see if the lumberjack really is dead. If so, let these two soften each other up then we can finish them off. But if he is still alive, we should try to save him. Just in case our scout is seen, I can stand ready to attack the bugbears.”
If our skill monkey Rogue is willing to sneak over, I will cast Guidance on him, granting him a one time +1 on a skill check.
I will pull back slightly so the bugbears don't get Ryker riled up.
Ryaid is waiting for a touch of guidance from Locutus before sneaking further in.tdsprouse wrote:“I should be able to get a closer look... If anything changes, and i havent made it back, do what you think best. If they seem to notice me, i'll bolt to the other side of the clearing to give you thier backs.”
Ryiad will wait for Guidance, then move at 1/2 speed to (-14,-AY), following that (next round), he'll get under the tree at (-17,-AY). He'll then try to ascertain the condition of the lumberjack.
Duni, i dont have my sheet with me, can you roll for the skill checks? i think we'll need Hide, Move Silently (both those under Stealth now?), and something to check his condition.
Ryaid's Stealth vs 2 Bugbear's Perception as they are distracted (1d20+8=19, 1d20-2=6, 1d20-2=2)
Ryaid is successful as far as he can tell. I'm not sure what position Ryaid is Stealthing to though.

Delastian does his best to pick up any indication of the man's health, but a massive wound in the man's side makes him believe the man is far from recovery.marine7312000 wrote:Delastian says “I will give you time to get closer friend but I cannot in good conscious let the man lay there with no aid if we can save him.” He will then draw his sword and keep a very close eye on the lumberjack. If he sees any movement from the man or any sigh that he's still alive, Del will immediately charge the bugbears.
When Collin looks at his wound under his bandages he finds it is quite healed as it was when he checked after waking at camp.DrizztFan24 wrote:Collin checks his wraps and the bandage on his leg and prepares to charge should anyone else charge the bugbears.

Suddenly, the one bugbear, not liking being pushed back swings his morningstar at the other. Caught off guard with the sudden action, the other bugbear takes a hard hit from the morningstar.

I think that a charge is okay for Drini, moving in a straight diagional line to -AV,-16.
Charge attack (1d20+8=20, 1d6+4=5)
If a charge isn't feasible, then he will just take it as a normal move, making it hit AC18.
In reaction to Drini's unexpected attack, Ryaid fires off an arrow, but he finds the brush a distraction and misses. He then disappears into the trees.tdsprouse wrote:Ryiad's eyes get wide with surprise, not having wanted to fight 1 bugbear, let alone 2.

Locutus watches the ensuing fights. THINKING: There is no way I can let them defile that lumber jack. Maybe we can seperate those two. Locutus will move to -AV-13 then commands Ryker to attack the Bugbear. Locutus will cast Guidance on Ryker during his standard action.
