Kark is casting Cure Bleeding Gums on Cricket

Jibjack snarls, and turns to face Meredith, the net whirling in his hand. He tries several times to entangle her, but she slips away each time, deflecting it or knocking it askew before being caught. Finally, he tosses the net at her and yanks out his short sword. <Bitch!>

The other goblins quail a little as Jibjack is unsuccessful, and their blows on Jerol and Odrot are weak and ineffectual.

The goblins all miss, none rolling higher than a 6. Sidekick hates me, too.

Your melee attacks, please.

"And this one is for Elonron!" Ash shouted as he slammed his bastard sword into the goblin leader's side.

20 to hit, 4 damage in discord.

Meredith

Meredith weaves back and forth avoiding the net. "You'll have to try harder than th- hey!" She doesn't speak Goblin, but she can guess what that word means. She cuts low and scores a hit on Jibjack's leg. "Brrzlak back to you too, gobbo!"

Hit for 4 damage in Discord.

Odrot

Odrot, a highly trained ranger with years of experience fighting off enemies, swings and totally whiffs again.

Kark of Uzbackistein

"Bracer, see the blood staining this mans teeth and heal his gums! Also the arrow wounds, if you would be so kind." Kark prays as he lays his hand on Cricket.

Cricket regains 3 HP, and Kark is out of spells!

Jibjack staggers a bit under the blows, but regains his footing and glares bloodily at Meredith and Ash. The other goblins--one of the archers wounded--hesitate a bit in the face of the Nameless Nine's onslaught.

New round. Declare spells, if any.

Cricket
5/5 HP, AC 11, 15 ST (+2 vs pois/prlz.),14/20 Arrows


Cricket looks toward the way back out, debating on whether retreat would be the better part of valor, but as Kark heals him he chooses to remain. He raises his bow and takes aim at the archer standing off by its own. His first arrow clearly misses, but the second is another matter.

Jerol grins in triumph as his latest swipe at the archer strikes true and the archer slumps to the ground. He turns to fully face the goblin to his left.

Meredith

The goblin leader circles around her, so Meredith turns to keep her shield facing him. She stabs at his ankles, but with no luck.

Odrot

Odrot swings at the goblin that tried to retreat from him and succeeds in sending him straight to the astral plane.

After player melee

Jibjack, seeing his underlings fall under a barrage of blows, bares his teeth at all of you, then throws down his sword in disgust. <Quarter!> He mumbles something about <worthless necklace...> as he backs away from his weapon.

Combat's over unless you want to hack Jibjack to pieces.

"Death to all the slayers of Elonron!" Ash hacks Jibjack to pieces. "You kill one of ours, we kill ten of yours... not that, you know, we weren't going to do that anyways. But, yeah, we sure showed you. Now that you're dead, and can... see... stuff... clearer?"

Ash gathered up the weapons and money of all the dead. The money he split out as evenly as possible and encouraged the others too look over the goblin weapons to see if they were better than what they'd been able to bring with them.

"We still need to find and put a stop to those archers on the second floor before we can risk burying Elonron. Maybe that door to the right of the front entrance? Jeral, Odrot; you look the least injured. Please lead the way."

Odrot

Odrot watches silently as Ash finishes off Jibjack, then nods slowly in approval. He smirks at the thought that a goblin weapon could be better than his, then makes his way to the door Ash suggested checking next and waits for the rest of the group to approach before he tries to open it. While he waits he glances at the drooling paladin standing in the middle of the hallway staring into space.

Jerol frowns at Ash's butchery, and nods at Odrot, and heads out the door and on to the door to the right of the entrance.

There's no sound from behind the door, and in fact the whole interior seems quiet. From outside, you can hear the faint occasional ring of the smith's hammer--he's apparently still working, ignoring the fracas.

Benedict is nowhere to be seen.

OK, moving out of combat and into more fluid time. Positions are as indicated for the folks that have posted.

Loot from the goblins:

32 sp
4 cp
5 suits of goblin leather (hacked and bloody)
1 suit of goblin ring (hacked and bloody)
6 shields
6 short swords
1 net

Jibjack is wearing a odd necklace:



The writing is not in goblin or a language familiar to anyone in the group.

"Right, let's wait until the rest of the group forms behind us before we go through this door, no need to use the jenkins manuever twice in one day." Jerol whispers to Odrot outside the next door.

Ash tucked one of the piles of 6sp & 1cp into his coin pouch as well as the necklace. He followed Jerol, staying just behind him and Odrot, bow at the ready.

Meredith, lantern held high, pokes around one end of the corridor, finding a lot of trash, some goblin waste, and a blocked stairwell.

Odrot, Ash, and Jerol push open a door and see a mass of broken crockery and smashed furniture. The remains of a tea set--broken cups, kettle, and saucers--is set up in a hastily cleared area of the floor, just next to a large pile of broken pots and a rope hanging down from a hole in the ceiling.

Jerol looks at the rope hanging down from hole in the ceiling with suspicion. "I do not want to go up that rope first."

Kark of Uzbackistein

Kark takes a moment to collect a few teeth from the goblin corpses with a pair of pliers, making the symbol of the toothbrush with his finger as he stops at each corpse. Finally he takes a tooth from Elonron, bowing his head for a moment before moving on to follow Jerol and the others.

Meredith

"Ugh, disgusting." Meredith covers her nose and retreats towards the others. "Looks like the stairs are blocked," she says, gesturing to the rope, "so I guess that's our way up."

"After you, boys."
