Master Penkawr uses his scroll to teleport away, promising to bring help as soon as possible, although it likely won't be for three days at the earliest. He wishes his friends luck before he goes.

The party circles around to approach from the southeast. They descend the hill and move cautiously into the open area surrounding the keep, trying to get as close to the lizardfolk as possible before being spotted.

At last, when they think they've pushed their luck as much as they can, Lola casts Bless and Marcus casts Unerring Weapon. Tex and Prost grab their share of the enchanted ammunition. Worrel and Cyrius ready their weapons.

The spellcasting alerts the nearest group of lizardfolk, who croak out an alarm to the rest of their little army. But the party, having prepared for this moment (and having won their initiative rolls), is quicker to act...

When posting your actions, please indicate what items you have readied if it's not obvious.

Prost has +1 sling bullet ready with Unerring Weapon cast on them...
Not sure what targets are, Prost will let bullet fly at closest target...


left the bless effect of so attack is 30 :D
Prost reloads...trying to stay at range and out of sight
Stealth check if needed...
Is the closest target within 30'...if so sneak atk dmg? Ok, strike that. I just now notice our markers for position...duh :eek: ...I think L17 is the closest... 80 or 90'. So Prost atk would be 29 on L17.

Worrel draws and looses an arrow at the nearest lizardman. He will shift to other targets, particularly if once of the lizardmen begins casting spells or firing back.

Lola will continue to summon a Blink Dog, 35' from us towards the group with L17 in it.

Cyrius also targets L17 with his MW light crossbow.
