Taika (Nevin)


"Looks like the fire can wait." Said Taika, flickering forward. "On the wings of an angel this eagle rides. Come forth and smite the goblins"

Urko

The goblin's knife finds a spot between the bands of Urko's armor and he winces. With a grunt, he chops with his shield at the goblin's hand but fails to connect. The other creature, however, had earned his attention. "Oi, dirtgrubber! The joke goes "why did the displacer beast cross the mine track . . ." Terrible delivery!" Ignoring the closest goblin, he loops around him, trying to get at the leader. The slash in his thigh, however, hurts him, and the leg buckles slightly as he swings, making his strike go wide. The errant axe carves a large piece out of a nearby table, then skips off the cobbles with a burst of sparks.

Taika (Nevin)

Moments before she begins to channel Taika motions towards the other mage. "Nevin, wake her up will you."

Nevin leapt from Taika's shoulder and skittered across the ground, leaping up to slap Estella and sailing right past her.

Estella Porazio

The dress maker jumped in surprise when the monkey sailed by her head. "Eek!" She cried out, "what was that about?" Wondering to herself, she turned to look at the other wizard.

Onyx, however, wasn't impressed with Nevin's action. She hissed and threw a claw in the direction of the monkey, hey! what was THAT for!?mrowing angrily at the other familiar on how he could have harmed her master. (Where they unfortunately could not communicate directly.)

Elenion Valdemar

Flailing around wildly at the goblins like a fencer having some sort of seizure, even Elenion was obviously rather embarrassed by his performance. Still, he had at least avoided receiving any wounds from the hostile goblins, although pity and contempt may have factored into their decision not to attack him along with his obvious defensive skill. Unfortunately, Elenion's dwarven companion seemed to have taken after his performance, beginning to show something like the half-elf's accuracy if perhaps not his instinct for self-preservation.

Stepping carefully around and behind the warchanter, sword at the ready, Elenion suggests to Urko, "You know, I never got the impression goblins are really all that into verbal comedy. They seem more like they type for slapstick, if you get my point." Attempting to punctuate his routine by smacking the warchanter with the broad side of his blade to stun it and then running the little creature through with a quick thrust, Elenion failed at both, albeit not as badly as before. He took his difficulties in stride, announcing, "See? No luck with the puns."

Lanna

....this time Lanna didn't miss...

The earthbreaker smashed the goblin from above, flattening him on the ground underneath the its full weight.

"Next!" she exclaimed as she stared at the second goblin now standing in front of her.

Goblin Pyros - End of Round 1

Taika readjusts her position and speaks to Nevin as she pulls a tiny bag and a candle from her spell component pouch. Her words and gestures causes a sparkling green light to appear halfway between her and the action.

Meanwhile, Nevin races up to Estella and swings at her face as he jumps past her. Onyx hisses and swipes her claws at the monkey as it sails past.

Estella seems frozen with indecision on what to do, completely missing the hint her familiar is trying to give her.
Goblin Pyros - Start of Round 2
Urko moves around to the other side of the goblin, giving both it and the warchanter an opportunity to attack. The goblin swings its dogslicer at the dwarf, but misjudges his speed and the blow slices through the air behind his enemy. The warchanter lashes out with her whip at the dwarf's legs, trying toi trip him, but her aim is spoiled by the flailing goblin in her way. Urko's swing at her in return is not as successful as other hits by him thanks to his recent wound

Elenion fares no better as he repositions and swings his rapier at the warchanter.

The towering Lanna has much better luck as her earthbreaker obliterates the goblin next to the cart.

The remaining goblin near Lanna is so traumatized that his attack misses widely. His two compatriots have no better luck on the other side of the cart. The goblin again misses Urko with his dogslicer, while the warchanter also misses Elenion with her blade as she screeches with rage.

OOCInitiative Order:
07 Taika
03 Estella
20 Urko
17 Elenion
16 Lanna (5 rounds enlarged left, or end of this combat, whichever comes first)
15/12 Geeba Geebas

Urko

Seeing the warchanter distracted by Elenion, Urko grins and winds up to split the goblin in two. The crushed remains of a mutton, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, the mutton nice and lean and the tomato ripe, happens to be directly under his boot as he swings, and the compressed sandwich slides, throwing off his aim and burying the axehead in the side of a merchant's stall.

"Gah! How hard can it be to dice a damned dirtgrubber?!" Continuing his grumbles, the dwarf takes a moment to unstick his axe, cursing and muttering.

Elenion Valdemar

"Not that I'm one to give advice on swordplay," Elenion admitted to the dwarf, pulling back and recovering from his last missed strike, "But I understand it's all about rhythm. Time your steps and your oppertunities to strike, and when you get a feel for the movements of your enemy..."

Lunging forward and striking out where his enemy's heart had been just a split second before, Elenion was disappointed to pierce nothing but the air. "Damnit. Use their patterns against them. That's the theory, anyways." Scowling, the half-elf drew his weapon arm back, then stepped back half a pace to put some space between himself and the tiny but surprising deadly weapons of his goblin opponents. "Fast little buggers, though, aren't they?"

Lanna

Raising her currently truely massive earth breaker over her head, Lanna took aim at the goblin remaining on her side of the cart....and the goblin deftly jumped out of the way of its impending doom.

Stand Still! I can't SMASH you when you tumble around like that devil! Lanna exclaimed after missing the little goblin.

Estella Porazio

Onyx was still suspicious of the monkey, but her mistress really need to do something rather than just standing. The black cat began hitting Estella's leg with her soft kitty paw, and pointing toward Elenion and Urko while meowing loudly.

"Honestly, Onyx, can't you see I'm under a major distress?" The wizard told her own cat with her hands on her waist, then her gaze followed Onyx's pointing, and landed on two on two action south east. The dress maker let out a long and deep sigh. "Fine... I get your hint..." She said with while rolling her eyes.

Estella moved toward the other giant woman for protection. "Come here, Nevin!" She beckoned the monkey, then aimed for the cheek of the goblin on the opposite side. *SMACK!* The sound of a loud slap echoed out, as the wizard slapped toward the goblin.

Taika (Nevin)

Taika finishes her chant and a purely white eagle manifests, midair, midflight. Upon seeing the goblins is cries and launches itself at the singing goblin "Smite EvilScreeeee". But it's zeal outmatches it's accuracy, it crashes into the roof below it.

*facepalm* Taika shakes her head slowly before looking around for some other way she could help. What did dad always say. Never leave home without acid splash. You never know what you're going to Granted, this advice was from a man who lived his entire life in Korvosa, not Sandpoint, but today Taika regretted not taking it.

Seeing little else she could do, she jogs forward, flickering further still and, for lack of a better action to take, she decides to get a better look at what that creepily singing goblin has going on. She makes herself aware of the magics at play here.

Elenion Valdemar

Watching the fight carefully, Elenion realizes that a change of plans might be in order. Once an opportunity presents itself, with the goblin warchanter's back to him and Urko ready to strike, Elenion silently gives the dwarf a quick "stop" hand signal, asking him to hold on for one second while the half-elf takes a moment to set up his swing.

Goblin Pyros - End of Round 2Taika finishes chanting, and out from the green glimmer shoots a blinding white eagle. It circles around the fight and swoops to attack the warchanter, but misses as the goblin ducks at the last moment.

Less than impressed with the eagle's attack, Taika moves towards the fight and tries to discern the magic in play. The shining conjuration of the celestial eagle almost eclipses the traces of bardic enchantment around the warchanter from its last spell.

Estella finally gets the clue Onyx has been trying to give her, the cat perhaps wishing she had a bit more heft behind her paws, and maybe that she could reach the side of her master's head. The wizard moves towards Lanna and reaches out to smack the goblin facing the giant barbarian woman. The goblin sqeals in pain and spins around looking for whatever hit him.
Goblin Pyros - Start of Round 3Urko is tripped up by the sandwich, which makes a sound vaguely sounding like "Toooo Blaaaavvveeee" as the insides squish out and splatter all over the flagstones.

Elenion gives great advice to the drawf, but neglects to take it himself as the warchanter seems to skitter out of the way of his attack.

Lanna gets a bit overconfident and misses the goblin facing her again as it twirls from Estella's slap. Her earthbreaker once again lives up to its name as the flagstones shatter beneath her blow.

The goblin completes its spin and tries to stab at Lanna, but it is a bit dizzy and it's slice goes wide. Good thing for Lanna, as its swing neatly lops off the hand from the arm sticking up from the shmooshed goo that used to be the other goblin on that side of the cart.

The goblin facing off against Urko lets out a scream and sneaks the point of it's dogslicer through a chink in the fighter's armor to prick his arm. (2 Dmg)

The war chanter shrieks curses at the eagle as it attacks, before swinging out with her dogsalicer to score against the bird's side. (3 Dmg)

OOCInitiative Order:
07 Eagle/Taika (One more turn for eagle if I read your feat correctly...)
03 Estella
20 Urko
17 Elenion
16 Lanna (4 rounds enlarged left, or end of this combat, whichever comes first)
15/12 Geeba Geebas

Elenion Valdemar

Watching the goblins on their side of the cart begin successfully slashing at his companions with alarming vigor, Elenion opts for a more pragmatic style of fighting. Kicking the goblin warchanter in its Achilles tendon, Elenion then launches a pair of wide, wild swings of his rapier at the little creature, hoping not so much to injure it as to knock it off balance and make the dwarf's work easier. "Suck it, you little foot-cutter!"

Grinning and watching his opponent stumble, Elenion suddenly became aware of how awkward he must look pushing and roughing up something half his size, like some schoolyard bully transported into the middle of a goblin raid. "Ah... For Magnimar!" he added, mustering as much enthusiasm and sincerity as he could.
