"Sure that's fine like I said, I don't want to fight them in the dark.

We're all tanked to oblivion and back again with encumbrance, at least I am, but if we think they are in the same boat and have captives maybe were still faster"

OOC: The last roll was the GM rolling Tactics for Anoras. The roll was made by 4. I rolled First Aid along with that to see if I think it would be a wise decision to head out now (I made the roll).

That's based on a couple things. One, figuring our probable rate of travel compared to those we're pursuing, who have skeletons and are very likely slowed down with captives. And two, on estimating their physical state based on them having had major physical combat and/or casting spells in combat with many opponents compared to what our physical state is.

EDIT: To clarify for the GM, based on the rolls, does Anoras think we should go into pursuit right away, or wait? And if she thinks we should wait, then how long?

I'm not going to give you a "Best", that feels too much like playing the game for you.

You all have move 5: Anoras travels very light, and the other two are very strong, rather fast, and lightly encumbered. You left shortly after noon, and are maybe two hours behind. You think they may be move 3, possibly move 4. If they are move 3, you think you can catch them right as darkness falls. If they are at move 4, you won't catch them until shortly after dark.

You don't think the dark favors them too much. you haven't seen evidence of spells or monsters that will do that. Both sides will be tired when you catch up to them.

You certainly will have other chances to catch them in the wilderness before the sacrifice but after the castle.

You have some concerns about running into another curse if you're tracking them directly.

If my post below sounds like I'm misinterpreting what Anoras would believe, please let me know!

Anoras (speaking to Cassandra and Thad): "My tactical and medical knowledge tell me we will be moving faster than they. And I know of no evidence that they can see in the dark.

"But in any case, I think the sooner we get moving, the sooner we can catch up to them. We might even catch them right as darkness falls. If not, it will be shortly after dark.

"But my suspicion is they may have set another curse for us if we follow them directly. And we will certainly have other chances to catch them in the wilderness before their planned sacrifice but after the castle. So we shouldn't bother following them directly, but head to an area near the castle by a different but direct as possible route.

So whether we fight them in the dark or the light, I say we move on to victory!"

Anoras (speaking): "Unless we reach them and battle them before they get to the area of the castle, we'll be spending the night outdoors. If we find them close to the castle, I don't think we'll want to attack them there because other warriors could join them. So we'd still want to spend the night outdoors. And then we'd have to travel back.

"So Cassandra, I'd suggest you take what you think you might need. And do not worry about being slow. If we were carrying nothing, you and Thad would be faster than me. With what you usually carry, you are no slower than I am."

So the plan is to try and set up near the castle but outside of reinforcement range, and ambush them there?

My personal idea is for us to head toward the castle as soon as possible. After that will depend upon what happens later. Our decision of what to do later could be very different depending on how late or dark it is when we reach them, what our condition is, how far they and we are from the castle, etc.

The group moves towards the castle on a different route, so as to avoid curses laid in wait for them. They don't reach the castle before dark, and the captives and captors should be near them... but its unsure if they are merely 100 paces through the woods, or a full mile, and if they are behind or ahead.



I need a survival roll from 1 character to avoid camping mishaps, and I'd like to know how you will be keeping watch (who and when). Will you be lighting a fire?
