    Default A statue, an party and a very angry god

    Or.... An adventure in the realms.

    It has been one hundred years since anyone last ventured into the dark continent. 150 since anyone came back ALIVE. And since then, the nations have agreed that no one need to sacrifice their lives there again.


    Lately though, a large amount of goblins and monster activity has been reported to the south. From random sightings to attack survivors, the reports have come in. The latest is of a group of raiders holed up near a well used caravan path, raiding nearby towns. This is where your group comes in. You have all been contracted to wipe out this band with a swift strike before their numbers grow.

    As you near the walk way up, will all of you roll a spot check please?

    Shieon cast his eyes around the area watchfully, looking for anything out of the ordinary. Goblin tracks, goblin remains, goblin horde... hopefully not the last one right at this moment.

    "A good idea. I'd much rather see this task done swiftly than have the goblins strike once more. Lets go then"

    Albert also takes a summary look around the battlefield, then stoops to look down at the ground, hoping to see tracks.

    When I was a kid, I often went hunting with my pere in the bough du champlain. Although these be not the tracks of a deer, and I'm no woodsman, but if the tracks are not too worn we may be able to follow these tracks to the raider's hideout.

    Using his cunning knowledge of ballistics and the anatomy of a goblin, Albert draws his bow and takes a shot at the fleeing goblin, striking it in the back as it runs.

    "Gotta run, gottan run! Malak must warn others of RAI-" Poor little malaks words were cut short as the arrow suddenly silenced him, protruding from where his eye was only moments before. And thus ended the life of Malak, the goblin youngling.

    A squirrel runs past, chasing after a rolling nut. A small bird flies past, apparently busy. Flowers sway in the light breeze. Despite the death of the goblin, the world goes on as normal.

    The party walks on the dirt road, arguing and bickering. Soon, you see more than a wooden gate - two tall wooden objects are right beside it, obscured by the trees.

    "That would make sense. I highly doubt that we'd have been sent out here without news of a friendly settlement." Shieon said, moving over to the corpse of the goblin "anyone see a good place to hide this? I'd rather these goblins not see us as their foes unless we have no choice"

    (due to natural twenty)

    Crazy Ivan finds a hole behind a bush, but not just ANY hole. this hole seems to have no bottom. it goes 30, 60, maybe even 100 feet down or more and just seems to fade into darkness.and it JUST happens to be JUST big enough to fit a goblins corpse.

    As you move closer toward the gate, you notice that the tall wooden structures are actually watchtowers, about twenty feet in length. A drowsy goblin looks down, notes you and moves to a nearby gong, before noticing the white cloth. He turns his back and yells to another goblin behind the gate. You wait, anticipating the results of your diplomatic entrance.

    The goblins upon seeing you jump up, panicked yet curious as they each hit their gongs in unison, two times, pause, then one time. They repeated this two more times as the gate opened, and five goblins, two with spears, one with a short sword, and 2 with maces, came out, glaring at them. The one in the middle with the sword grunted out in crude common, "STATE YOUR BUSINESS OR DIE!"

    All he understood was "Leaders", "intentions" and "Locate" but with this he gets the gist.

    "Drop weapons. Or we kill you where stand!" He says as they all raise their weapons, waiting for their would be Ambassadors to follow the order.

    Fle spoke quietly in Abyssal, purposely choosing a language they probably did not know, glaring at the goblin, "You insignificant creature asks us to drop our weapons, I'll call down a Balor to stick you to a poll. After I have a Vrock eat you're insides, I might tell them to kill you." He used the common words for Balor, Vrock and insides, hoping the goblin would at least understand that he was in a foul mood.

    I'm back.
