Got somebody down this corridor, Cyrius warns as he steps back to 1020 (assuming Lola and Marcus are in 1021 and 1121). Pitiful opening shot, but I'd like to get out of the way before he gets any better.

Worrel advances down to the corner, shining the light from his sword both to the east and north. If he spots a goblin within twenty feet, he will move to engage the enemy. Otherwise, he will hunker down behind his shield in an effort to avoid any more crossbow bolts.

 OUT-OF-CHARACTER:   
Move - 20 ft to 1721
Standard - Assume Total Defence (+4 dodge bonus to AC) (current AC 27, flat 22, touch 15)

Round 2 Continues

Got somebody down this corridor, Cyrius warns as he steps back to closer to Lola and Marcus. Pitiful opening shot, but I'd like to get out of the way before he gets any better. [After a 5 foot step, Cyrius has a full action remaining...]

Worrel advances down to the corner, shining the light from his sword both to the east and north. Just as he reaches the intersection, he hears a slight whoosh as a crossbow bolt comes sailing from the north to strike him dead center [4 hp damage including sneak attack; again lame]. He then spots the goblin (G6) lurking around a corner to the north (he was at 1815). The enemy is not within 20 feet, so Worrel hunkers down behind his shield in an effort to avoid any more crossbow bolts [total defense].

Lola moves up into the east passage and take aim down the corridor, but doesn't see anything.

Round 3 Begins

Again, Tex moves past Worrel and shoots at the goblin G6 who is peering around the corner. The goblin is too slow to duck back and the terminal shot sets its victim heaving in a series of violent death-throes [9 hp damage, G6 dead].

Marcus follows down the east passage with Worrel.

Prost reloads his sling staff and moves back into the main corridor... and quietly says to Cyrius... “Sorry...”

In the light provided by Prost's sunrod, Cyrius can now see his goblin attacker, so he takes immediate action to fire his crossbow. The missile's low drone ceases abruptly as it lodges itself in G1 (who was at 1011) [6 hp damage]. Cyrius then reloads. [Let me know if this isn't what Cyrius would have done with his remaining action for this round, but I figured I'd move things along.]

Goblin G1 retreats into the darkness at the north end of the corridor (1008), leaving no visible goblins.

 ACTIVE EFFECTS & CONDITIONS   
Crosshatched areas are total darkness where only Tex's darkvision can see.

Round 3 Continues
Worrel: longsword and shield readied, 42 arrows left, light (from Marcus) on longsword 48.6 min left, 4 hp damage
Lola: loaded heavy crossbow readied, wand of CLW 5 charges left, 51 bolts left
Round 4 Begins
Texudus TreeBender: longbow readied, 34 arrows left
Marcus Tilsworth: loaded crossbow readied, 44 bolts left
Evan Prost: loaded slingstaff readied, 5 regular bullets left, sunrod in boot
Cyrius of the Sudden Blade: loaded crossbow readied, 12 bolts left, 2 hp damage
Goblins

Lola will move down to 1521 and keep her crossbow at the ready, looking past the party to make sure no one sneaks up behind the group looking down the hallway.

Cyrius will move to 1121, slinging his (unloaded) crossbow on the way, and manifest his mind blade in its longsword configuration once he gets there, keeping an eye on the corridor he just left.

"I am after that one," states Worrel. He moves to the north, still keeping his shield up to fend off any bolts.

Marcus sticks with Worrel for the remainder of encounter. He'll use up his rays first and switch to his crossbow when all seven rays spent. Default action target nearest for keeping distance for ranged attacks.

Round 3 Continues

I am after that one, states Worrel. He moves to the north, still keeping his shield up to fend off any bolts [total defense]. He takes a look to the east as he passes the first intersection (1719), but sees no goblins that way.

Lola moves down the passage and keeps her crossbow at the ready, looking past the party to make sure no one sneaks up behind the group looking down the hallway [readied action].

Round 4 Begins

Tex moves up behind Worrel, longbow drawn should any goblins appear [readied action].

Marcus sticks with Worrel and Tex, also ready to electrocute any goblins [readied action].

Prost waits for Cyrius...

Cyrius moves into the east corridor, manifesting his mind blade in its longsword configuration on the way, and slinging his (unloaded) crossbow once he gets there, keeping an eye on the corridor he just left.

Prost moves into the east corridor as well, lighting the way.

No goblins make themselves known...

 ACTIVE EFFECTS & CONDITIONS   
Crosshatched areas are total darkness where only Tex's darkvision can see.

Round 4 Continues
Worrel: longsword and shield readied, 42 arrows left, light (from Marcus) on longsword 48.5 min left, 4 hp damage

Lola will move to 1720 using the walls as cover, she will look south, keeping a look to the left and right in case anything is trying to come up behind the party.

 OUT-OF-CHARACTER:   
Don't have my sheet right now. Will check to see if Lola has a light spell and if does will cast it on bolt to light up the dark space. If not she will just keep watch. Will look up and update tonight when I get home from work. Have it, so turn updated.


Lola will cast light on her bolt and shoot it toward the darkened area to the east. Will aim to try to avoid getting it stuck in the wall. She will then reload her crossbow (realizing this might take more that 1 round).

Worrel continues north, cautiously looking to the east when he reaches the first tunnel. If his Light reveals a goblin, he will head east towards it. Otherwise, he continues moving until just before the intersection at the north.

Move - either 15 ft to 1714 or 20 ft to 1915
Standard - Total Defence (+4 dodge bonus to AC, currently AC 27, touch 15, flat 22)
