Today was one of my gamer friend Damion’s birthday so i had him roll iniitative and this is what happened 🙂
Mario: Happy b-day … roll initiative
Damion: Two hits for a total of six Or Twelve
Mario A band of 3 human bandits catch sevyn in the alleyway relieving himself alone. The rest of the party are drinking in the tavern around the corner in Kings End they get , 8 ,10 and ,14 the first one tries to grab you from behind and rolls a 6 you deflty duck out of the way while fastening your pants the other 2 draw daggers
Damion : ”A thief has honor, an assassin is silent death, a cut purse who assaults is an honor less pig” I draw my blade and trick strike the one who just attacked me. 22 vs ac.
Mario: The unarmed bandit stumbles into the wall off balance falling into a pile of refuse. He clutches his arm where your blade sliced through his shirt and coat and yells “Get that runt.” The first one a large cretin with a broken toothed smile lunges forward trying to trap you between the wall and himself. Lunging with the rusty old dagger in his hand the blade whistles near your ear but misses. The other tries to circle around the other side and slashes as well only scraping the wall sending dust and dirt into your hair.
Mario The first one regains his balance and brushed the filth from his coat. Flexing his injured arm he looks at you and says” you are gonna pay for that runt we just wanted yer gold now you ain’t gonna walk out of here.” His huge fist strikes out like a hammer and connects with your head stars flash before your eyes for an instant. (nat 20)
Damion: Sevyn goes limp and fakes unconsciousness (bluff 17 + 5)
Mario : ”Hah now we got ‘im” as the leader grabs for Sevyn’s blade. The other two stand back excited to find out what their cut is.
Mario : Pulling the blade free of Sevyn’s hand the leader kicks the limp halfling in the ribs “serves yah right this was my best shirt and now you got blood on it”
Mario: I bluff a fake coming to and try to “groggily” stand up. First I sleight of hand a dagger from his belt. (28, I rolled a nine) and see if I can continue the just waking up ruse (bluff 32 I rolled a sixteen)
Mario : ”Ooo he’s gonna be a tough guy. Should have stayed down chum” the leader says a bit wobbly the red stain on his arm spreading ” come on Manx we gotto go!” The third bandit said nervously. Clumsily slashing with the stolen blade Manx lunges 15 vs ac
Damion Miss, I bluff and steal my dagger back, (29 bluff and 34 sleight oh hand)
Mario The now unarmed Manx looks bewildered “how did you …bah think you’re clever do yah.” Swings at Sevyn 2 vs ac
Mario : Manx has got to go and the brute is going to be too big for me to train. I engage the brute and use my daggers power of getting one free advantageous strike per day. Backstab at big grunt guy. 27 vs ac. 15 points of damage. If grunt didnt go down i feel surrounded. ” hey kid I need someone to lug my shit around. 1 gold a week an ill teach you some finesse” I say to the third guy.
Mario: The brute’s eyes go wide as the dagger slides between his ribs. He is dead before he hits the ground. Manx stumbles and falls to the ground breathing heavily he looks from you to the brute and to the young bandit. “Get him Shift he can’t do this to us.” Shift looks at the brute then Manx then Sevyn. Then sheathes his dagger and kicks Manx down “sounds like a good deal when can I start ?”
Damion :”get paid and trained or get dead real quick…” deep cut daily power on Manx 17vs fortitude. 8 points of damage ongoing seven per round save ends.). “….your choice.” I turn on Shift.
Mario ”I will learn what you will teach, I can get rid of these for you ” gesturing to the bodies we had to get rid of others when George would get too excited . Did you mean what you said a thief has honor? Manx never did.” Sevyn leaves Shift , his new pupil, to dispose of the bodies. Rubbing the growing red spot on his cheek where he got hit and brushing the dirt from his hair and clothes. He goes back to the tavern. When the door of the tavern opens Buri, Ajax, Daraken, Fen, Victor and Molly holding a huge cake burning bright with candles all raise their glasses yell HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!! Though all get a strange look on Their faces at the state of Sevyn’s clothing and face. “Wow must’ve been some pee” laughs Fen as he downs his beer.
