The Purge
left-aligned image

What remained of the cottage is small, so small that it would have been a tight fit for all five adventurers to crowd into, especially considering the two goblins currently occupying it. As the door opened and Del pressed into the room, the goblins froze mid conversation, clearly not expecting visitors. They had been sitting lazily atop a small bench which appeared to have been pushed up against the window with their hands grasped around crude shortbows. However, as soon as the mercenary appeared in the doorway, they stiffened and their eyes darted around the room, ready to bolt.

The first goblin, clad in ragged clothes and sporting a long-since scar on his lip, quickly got up and stood protectively in front of the smaller goblin behind him.

Panicked, he let out a sentence full of gravely words. Nope, you don't know goblin :P"Koc, daach daan okhaar!"

OOCRoll for initiative. If you get above a seven you can post first.

Del Corgan
right-aligned image
Del paused at the sight of yet more goblins. Honestly, he didn't know what else to expect at this point. On a certain level he knew goblins could be dangerous, and the bows on these two certainly gave him a moment's hesitation. Still, he had little stomach to just walk in and start slaughtering the little buggers, so matter how foul they might be. All the others had been given a chance to leave with their lives, so... no reason to switch things up now.

He drew back just a step, enough to give everyone room to breath, but kept a wary eye on the bows the goblins held. He cleared his throat a little. "Alright. We're reclaiming this town. Leave all valuables you may have looted from the premises and exit in an orderly fashion."

More of these maddening goblins, Estorio thought to himself as the cottage door opened to reveal two more of the mangy creatures. So far they'd been successful in scaring the creatures away, but Estorio held no illusions that at any point these interactions could devolve into violence.

Del spoke and tried to warn the interlopers off, but it wasn't clear that the creatures even understood common. Estorio invoked the gauntlet on his arm with a string of archaic dwarvish and the metal glove began to rattle quietly as he prepared a spell in the possibility of violence.

The Purge
left-aligned image

The smaller goblin didn't need to be told twice, though it was hard to tell if it was the words of the other goblin or Del that caused him to run. It scurried past both Del and Gell, slinking against the wall in an attempt to get as far from the adventurers as possible. As he passed a smell of putrid food swept over the pair and muddy footprints were left across the floor as he left, turning to sprint through the muddy pen.

There was a brief, tense silence as the remaining goblin dropped his bow to the ground, watching from the corner of his eye as his companion left. Del, relaxed his posture a bit when it seemed as if the situation had deescalated, just enough that when the goblin reached to its side and drew a scimitar, he was caught off guard. Lunging for the mercenary standing before him, the goblin was able to sink his blade between armor to flesh, 18 to hit, 8 damagetearing into Del's side. Del doubled over, leaving an opening for Vadania to reach out an open palm, releasing a puff of noxious fumes that infected nothing but the empty air where the goblin had once been as he tumbled out of the window he had been stationed at. A bell rang out faintly, but even that didn't seem to phase the small creature.

Outside, Koe and Estorio saw him emerge even as the smaller of the two continued rounding the fence and disappeared behind the stables. The sight of the larger one slogging through mud and climbing over the fence would have been almost amusing, if it weren't for the sounds of steel on steel that they had heard coming from within. As he slid down the outside of the small fence, the goblin started running as far from the others as he could.

Del Corgan
right-aligned image
Del roared in pain and surprise as the treacherous goblin sank its blade into his side. He clutched at his side reflexively, coming up with blood all over his hand as he spun after the fleeing form. His easy-going nature banished by the burning cut in his side, he wrapped the red-stained hand around the hilt of his sword and rushed out in pursuit.

"You little bastard!"

In his rush to get out of the tiny building, it looked like he overshot his target by quite a bit, staggering forward. He quickly transferred the momentum of his movement into the blade of the sword in what was revealed to be a calculated maneuver, but luck was not with him this time. His sword swung powerfully and true... directly into the goblin's shield where it buried itself with a resounding thud, but no real injury.

Gell leaned on his staff lazily as Del talked tough to the goblins' inside the cottage and gazed musingly at Estorio's gauntlet as his employer's magics set it whirring. He turned, a light smile on his face as the goblin stepped forward and slashed savagely across Del's side, and like a mouse, darted from the room. Gell scarcely had time to react and he swung his staff late, roaring in the goblin's wake. His blood ran hot and his face burned as he saw the bloodied Del charge out ahead of him after the two goblins.

Even blooded, he pursues first! WRRAH, he cried in his mind. Thundersnout, you whelp. Make chase! Barreling towards the door of the cottage he chased the goblins, skirting around his allies and moving as far as he could despite the obstacles and muddy ground underfoot.

Estorio leaps back and out of the goblins way as it charges out of the barn. The thing was mad! Though it was clear to any with an eye that Delwyn was far from the spriest of birds, the ability with which the grubby little creature dodged his bodyguard's mighty sword swings was incredible. It was incredible enough that Estorio himself wanted little to do with it and instead choose to give chase to the first goblin to flee.

The elf moves quickly and with grace, running around the melee that included Delwyn and the übergoblin and rounding the corner of the barn. "There you are..." He points his gauntlet at the fleeing form of the goblin, focusing down the length of his fingers like an archer down the shaft of a drawn arrow. "Just within range." He snaps.

Vadania sighed and wondered for a moment why she even bothered. Of course, the goblins were going to revert to their violent nature eventually, especially when cornered. At least Del was still standing.

When the drunkard doubled over in pain, she sent last attackone puff, then a second over his head and towards the scimitar wielding goblin. It dodged the first, then held it's breath and plugged its nose as it exploded out of the second cloud of gas. "You've got to be kidding," V exclaimed, obviously frustrated.

She took two steps back, letting the weightier of her companions stand in the front. This was no ordinary goblin.

Koehilas ‘Koe’ von Okintin

Koe stood motionless, paralyzed by the sudden eruption of violence. His heart started up so fast it nearly knocked him off his feet and the air from his lungs. The moment felt as if it stretched out for longer than it should have, right before everything crashed into chaos.

Fear had debilitated him at first, but now it drove him. Koe sprang forward toward Del, darting behind the injured man and slapped a hand on his arm. Cure Wounds - 8 hp from DiscordA warm, tingling magic spilled forth from Koe’s hand and into Del. “Okay,Bardic Inspiration. Add 1d6 drop him first, bud. Not the other way around, yeah!?”

Koe sprang back, feeling drained and not in a particular mood to get sliced in half by these crazed goblins.

The Purge
left-aligned image

The goblin was turning into a more formidable foe than the adventurers might have once thought, as again the small creature managed to dodge any and ever assault upon him. Fear showed clearly on his small face, his eyes darting from person to person. When Gell stepped forward to block his path, the goblin panicked and struck forward with his blade before ducking between the legs of the large half-orc. Bright crimson quickly blossomed on Gell's green-tinted skin and his head grew light, signalling that the injury was anything but trivial.

The goblin didn't look back though. Adrenaline fueled his mad dash past Del and Estorio, his small, nimble body moving too quickly to allow them an opportunity to attack in return. Upon reaching the door to the barn, he pushed it open just far enough to slide through before it slammed shut a moment later. Inside, horses whinnied and buckled at the sudden and violent movement.

The smaller goblin that had fled around the other side of the barn continued on his path, completely 14 save successunphased by Estorio's spell. However, as far as they could see, he hadn't reappeared anywhere that they could see him.

Estorio's golden eyebrows dip in annoyance as the goblin seems to once again shake off the dolorous note of his spell. With long, graceful steps the high elf races after the goblin that pushed past him, following the creature through the door of the barn. He pulls the door open and leaves it wide for his companions to pass through after him. As he moves into the building, his gauntlet rattles as he snaps and invokes another curtain of necrotic energy upon the goblin.

With a swipe, Gell's stomach bled profusely and the goblin was skittering past, through the druid's legs no less. He kept his feet, though he clawed for mental control as the pain threatened to overwhelm him. Breathing through gritted teeth, he pressed his hand over the wound and channeled a bit of the Great Bear's gift to staunch the wound. The bleeding slowed, and the wound itched as it always did after a magical healing.

He scanned about, seeing his allies sprinting about and strode towards the stable. He'd lost time, but he knew he need healing before searching for a hidden foe. Especially one as wily and nimble as this. Approaching the doors, he flung them open. Already, his staff crawled and writhed with vines. He had a spell in mind for quick, slippery goblin foes.

Vadania Amakiir
right-aligned image
Vadania watched in disbelief as the two goblins continued to avoid any and all attempts at attack. For the briefest moment, she felt a pang of doubt at her own magic, but no, if it was truly her the others would be having more success. These goblins, despite their mangy appearance, must be either exceedingly skilled or exceedingly lucky.

Following Estorio's lead, V dashed after the goblin, scooting her body around the freshly healed Del and around the edge of the stable. Without the stable blocking her way, she readied another spell to send after the fleeing goblins.

The Purge
left-aligned image

Vadania rushed past in a blur as Estorio positioned himself in front of the old barn door. Inside, horses were in a frenzy at the commotion both outside and within. As Gell positioned himself beside the artificer, Estorio slid open the barn door.

Twang Twang

Two arrow shafts erupted from the Estorio's 22 to hit, 8 dmgchest and 18 to hit, 7 damageshoulder, crimson blossoming at the impact sights, his eyes wide with disbelief. He slumped to his knees before falling to his side just outside the door. Blood trickled, spreading sideways and eventually pooling on the dirt path below him.

Inside, a fury of shouts began, speaking in the short, harsh words of Goblin that the others had no hope of understanding.

Still breathing heavy from his rapid healing, Gell arranged himself behind Estorio and the barn doors and fumed, listening to the panicked shrieking of the horses. His face was stern, all traces of humor vanished.

Then, his employer swung the door open... and gasped as arrows seemed to sprout from his chest. He fell into the dirt mere feet in front of Gell.

"GREAT BEAR!" The druid roared, rushing forward and throwing his weight to slide the door and close it. Hunching against the door, and above Estorio, without a moment's hesitation, the druid closed his eyes and channeled healing energy into the elf. Only a trickle greeted his summons, and he felt a scarce amount Estorio's wounds close. Exhausted, Gell nearly lost his feet as he stood, and settled for sitting with his bulk against the door.

He looked up at the allies before him, bewilderment in his eyes. "Wha-- What in the hells are they!?"
