    Withdraw is fine, just noting that inside the building, range is less an issue.

    The last one was a crit but they rolled too low on my d100 "Did they get into the right square?" to actually hit you. Not by much though! 80+ would've been a lucky strike.

    It's now morning time. Time to decide your approach for scouting the Red Hand base, if any, from a distance.

    I changed some of Zuri's spells for today. I only had 3 spell slots left last night so we only have 30 goodberries. I'll keep track of the accounting, but Zuri will give everyone one so you can shove it in someone's mouth if they go down.

    Any thoughts for our next attack?

    We have a boat instead of helicopters, but this is what I'm picturing.

    Without the cover of yesterday's fog, can we expect to be seen as soon as we leave our camp, or does it seem like we could travel around some in the boat and explore without being discovered?

    Mostly depends on if there's any patrols nearby. The islands and buildings sticking up out of the lake block a lot of direct line of sight, but all it needs is one person at the right height/angle to spot you.

    You could ~probably~ approach the base decently close without being spotted if all the enemies are just hanging around the walkways/roof and not roaming further beyond.

    Guys, I bet that's what they're doing.
    And all of them are keeping their eyes closed, too.

    At this point, we need to assume they'll send out patrols. My worry isn't just that they might see us approach, it's that they might let us get to the headquarters and then trap us there.

    Maybe we should leave the boat hidden and swim underwater to the headquarters, exploring while we go.

    Is this the only fort in the area? Just curious if there's anything else we could hit that might not be expecting it. Just curious since we seem pretty on the same page that this place is gonna be swarming with something to hurt us. :3

    I was under the impression that we are in a half-submerged building right now, but if we are on dirt, then Zuri could bury the boat now and uncover it later.

    Heyo,

    Sorry for not picking this up - I had some...issues in another game which kinda sucked my brainspace away for today. I've not read any of the posts here or IC so far but I'll be picking up everything tomorrow once I've had a chance to sleep it off. Updates/answers shortly!

    There is indeed plenty of small islands dotted around for burying the boat, though you are not, currently, on one of them.

    With regards to other forts there's a few other submerged-but-also-above-water buildings (like the one you rested in), though the one with the Red Hand was the most central.

    Plan summary time:
    Bury boat on an island to hide it->Swim underwater (waterbreathing hooooo) to the Red Hand fort to scout/get the drop on any forces there->Claim victory(!)(?)

    Let me know by...this evening my time (so like 10-12 hours) if that's wrong but otherwise I'll shift ahead to the next stage.

    That looks good to me. I'd just add some scouting of surrounding buildings as we approach our target in order to make sure there are no large-scale ambushes.

    If I werenít pretty sure the walk would last more than an hour Iíd add an Arcane Eye over our heads to guide us and then do the scouting.
    So instead I will add See Invisibility so that the only reason Iíll be unable to see things is that my eyes are constantly submerged in swamp water.

    EDIT:
    Ooh good idea Bob, Iíll use Arcane Eye ďas we approach our targetĒ so we only have to poke our heads above water once to do the scouting.

    We're swimming, not walking. But great idea on the arcane eye. I hadn't thought of that.

    I can't think of any issues with the current plan.

    I just hope the Red Hand is feeling demoralized and unwilling to refortify this place. Our body count is about... 15 at the moment? I wanna say about 15.
