They set out towards Holidor, With Thad in front, Anoras tracking slightly behind, and Cassandra bringing up the rear.

As they are moving forward, Thad suddenly feels his hair stand on end, and there is a crack of lightning that hits a nearby tree, despite the clear skies. A deafening crack of thunder fills the air.

Each player roll vs. HT-2 or take 1 damage and -2 to hearing rolls for 12 hours. Anoras may get +1 for distance, and Cassandra +2.

(If I'm understanding it right, Anoras made a successful roll at HT-2+1)

(Kallazz rolled but did not post)



The tree sputters with fire from the lightning strike, but you all seem to be unharmed. Now that she is looking for it, Anoras quickly finds the edges of the spell that was triggered. She also realizes this spell could have been a lot worse: the point must have been the noise, and maybe the flash. This is the second trap you've seen the sorcerers use.


Anything else you want to do at the tree before you continue onto the castle? will you march 10 hours strait and arrive in the night, or will you stop when the sun goes down?

OOC: Even though Anoras seems to be the only PC with Tactics, other players may well be better at Tactics than me! So I welcome my fellow players' thoughts.

My thought is we're three trained warriors with a Basic Move/Speed of average or above. And the fact we're used to traveling through rough terrain doesn't hurt.

We're following a group several times our size with captives and skeletons. Chances are that our effective movement is going to be significantly faster than theirs. And that's partially based on my professional experience as a journalist who covered crime. A police officer or guard walking with a captive does not want to walk fast! It makes it too easy for a prisoner to break into a run. And it makes it harder to keep an eye on a prisoner.

And three people (us) attacking a castle sounds like a suicide mission.

I suggest we work to catch up to the group. If we can free at least some of the captives, we may outnumber our opponents.

And again, if helpful, I designed Anoras to be able to act and sound like a Venasir native.

"I know not how much time we have. Anoras, in your knowledge of sorcery, will sacrifices be dispatched immediately? Or will there be enough delay to afford us rest for the night?"

Information about sacrificing already given:



Quote:
Additionally, Anoras makes a mental check of the "sacrifice sites" in the region. Scorcerors gain great power through human sacrifice, but only at the right locations and at the right times, usually at night. There are five sites nearby that will be right in the next five days.
They are not heading towards the site that will work tonight.

Anoras: "It is virtually certain they will not be doing sacrifices tonight. There are five sites nearby that will be right for ritual in the next five days. But the night has to be right for each site. They are not heading toward a site that would work tonight.

"It is a little after noontime now. Perhaps we could travel during daylight, possibly catching up to them before dark. Again, they are a much larger group than us and with captives, which will slow them down. So almost certainly they will not be moving as fast as we can move.

"If we don't catch up to them before dark, we can rest and continue on after daybreak."
