"GNOLLS AND GOBLIN-BROTHERS! DROP YOUR WEAPONS AND SURRENDER AND WE WILL LET YOU LIVE! WE CLAIM THIS MANOR IN THE NAME OF BRACER, THE GOD OF PEARLY TEETH!"
Kark shouts to the courtyard below in Common, as he stands near the edge of the roof.

There's a flurry of arrows from the slits again, though they thunk harmlessly into the smithy roof and floor, save for one which glances off Meredith's shield, nearly hitting the gnoll. The smith yells, "Hey, I'm workin' here!" in Goblin.

The gnoll, faced with overwhelming odds, steps back, tosses down his shield and axe, and slurs "quit, quit!"

Movement and missile please.

"Yes, unless you want to end up slain like these fellows down here, you should probably lay down your arms and evacuate the premises sensibly."

trying to move towards the party without getting out of cover. If I can get on the ground by them adjacent the doorway without drawing arrows, I want to head there.

Ash slung his bow and hustled to pick up the gnoll's shield and axe. As he moved he shouted at the gnoll in goblin, "Face the wall! Sit down facing the wall!" Nervously keeping one eye on the gnoll he hustled to get back into the questionable cover provided by being right up against the manor and tried to open the manor doors. They needed to get inside and away from the archers before one of them was killed.

Dropping the axe at the end of my move since it puts me over my encumbrance. 15lbs is freaking heavy.

The gnoll slumps down against the wall, tongue lolling.

As the doors creakly slowly open, you hear a loud pair of twannnngs and the sound of something thudding into the backside of the door. From above you, in the arrow slits, you hear some cursing in Goblin.

No melee unless someone wants to attack the smith or the gnoll, so on to next round. Map goes up in the AM. Declare spells, if any.

Round 5


Outside


Inside

The interior of the manor is dingy and there's trash and loose bits of the stone floor scattered everywhere. The thunks apparently came from two crossbows rigged to fire when the doors opened; whoever set them must have given them too little slack, as they've fired too quickly as the doors opened.

Cricket's footfalls are light on the grime-smeared floors. He can hear scraping sounds ahead and to the right--sounds like wood moving on stone--and muffled steps and cursing in goblin from above.

There's no missile fire or movement--you're all out of line of sight.

"Oh... It's unlocked." Meredith looks almost disappointed. She shrugs, cleans her sword a little, and then stands in the doorway. "Careful. Don't let 'em get behind you, the last thing we need is goblins stabbing our, uhm, dentist."

The corridor continues both ways, turning at, appropriately enough, the corner towers. There's one door on each wall, north and south, on each side, and doors in the angled wall of the towers. The north door on the right side is open, but there's something blocking the lower half. You can hear movement from inside the room.

Still nervous about the dog-man and goblin they left behind in the courtyard; not to mention the archers somewhere upstairs; Ash is spooked into rash action by the sound of even more unseen foes. The highstrung young man's voice cracks as he shouts "Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet Them!" Charging forward he tries to leap over the barricade blocking the lower half of the upper right hand door and close to sword range with whatever is hiding beyond.

Ash barrels down the hall, neatly braces and flips over the up-ended table and crudely braced chairs behind it and lands.. face-to-face with half a dozen angry looking goblins, several of whom have bows at the ready...

After movement & missile fire

The two goblin archers hiss as the Nine(-ish) swarm through the doors. Not reacting fast enough to Odrot, Jerol, and Ash's assault, they switch targets to Meredith, bracing by the left door. A quartet of arrows streaks toward her--one slips past her shield, driving painfully into her shoulder.

The cleaver-wielding goblin gibbers slightly and charges after the arrows, crashing into the now-wounded Meredith. One of the other goblin warriors shuffles over to support his comrade, pressing in on Jerol.

The last goblin, net spinning from one hand, saunters toward the main melee, whistling an odd tune.

Four damage to Meredith from an arrow; everyone's in melee if you're adjacent. Attacks now (Odrot you've already missed, go ahead and post), please.

Ash is so busy being impressed by the surprising smoothness of his entrance and subsequent lack of arrows sticking out of him that he crashes into the chairs and completely misses the goblin. He does manage to put a nasty scratch into the table though.

Jerol's blade bites into the goblin, who falls shrieking.

The other goblin takes advantage of Jerol's strike on his fellow, burying his blade in the ranger's leg. The warrior facing Ash darts in and lands a nasty slice on Ash's abdomen.

Six damage to Jerol and three to Ash.

After movement & missile

The goblin chef looks confused, whining briefly as Meredith retreats out of the door. Jibjack turns, and gestures with a growl: <Well, go get her, jackass!>

The archers look briefly panicked as Jerol advances, the one nearest dropping its shortbow and scrabbling to get a shortsword out of the ragged scabbard. The other fires quickly at the pack in the corner, and woe! scores two strikes on the hapless, lightly-armored contingent. Elonron drops, an arrow transfixing his throat, gurgling. Cricket is the other target, and the arrow digs deep into his vitals. He's still up, however, if badly wounded.

As noted in Discord, Elonron is dead, at -1. Cricket's at 1hp remaining.

Jerols pleasure as the goblin in front of him falls is muted by the pain from the attack of the goblin he had not correctly accounted for. He slid past him and sliced at the closest archer, but the wound in his leg robbed him of his expected momentum and his blade fell short of the archer.
