A pair of skeletons march out into the field to retrieve Thad. Will Cassandra react to that?

Also I'm assuming the "Bushy-Beard" and the square-faced "Bushy-haired Warrior" are the same person. If I'm wrong, please let me know!
You're correct. My bad. I should probably give him a name. He won't have the same prohibition on saying his name the sorcerers have.



Removing the mark on her hand will require a charm from wings (much like the amulet did) 10 minutes of time, and access to a fire, charcoal, and a knife. It will also do 1 point of damage to the hand. And be really obvious what she is doing.


Fortunately him attacking her with spells via the mark will take 10 minutes per attempt and also require a fire. Tracking her will be almost instant though.

Fair enough. Do remember that using Sorcery warps your mind.

If Anoras can start healing Thad during the below conversation, she'll do so. She wants to start healing him as soon as possible.

Quote:
(Anoras speaking to Bushy Beard) "You seem to know what you're talking about. Wise choice on getting the giant away from the archer for all our safety. But please don't have the giant tied up--that could interfere with my healing. And if I cannot heal him, there will be no interrogation. I'm sure your archers or the skeletons would be perfectly capable of keeping an eye on a man who's going to die if I don't save him so we can learn what he knows.
Bushy Hair: "Don't tie him up yet. Keep weapons on him though."


Quote:
"Oh, and also think what if the archer truly is on the same side with the giant? Then the archer will not attack those with the giant for fear of killing the giant. And you know, it's possible that archer might know....might be worth capturing for interrogation instead of killing the archer. Yes, definitely worth it. But you of course know that can wait."
Bushy Hair: "Skeletons should be enough. And the distance. And covering archers. We need to retrieve the body anyways. We don't want to let one archer keep us here all day."


Quote:
(Anoras speaking to the group in general) "Oh, another thing, on the interrogation. Do any of you speak Haunden? I can speak it roughly. A patient is more likely to talk to his healer than to anyone else."

Fireball answers in natively fluent Haunden: "I can speak Haunden as well as anyone. A lot better than 'Roughly'"



Quote:

Thanks. Anoras is hoping that while she's treating the wounded, they'll talk amongst themselves--and she can learn.

Again, as soon as she can, she'll start working on Thad.
This will wait on Cassandra's action or lack thereof.

So emerging from cover and presumably no shields to try and grab Thad? She'll try to tag one

OOC: Of course that's your decision. But as we've been calling him Bushy-haired Warrior, Bushy Hair, or Bushy Beard, how about a name that has "Bush" in it? Something like Bushiko?

OOC: I had of course said ericthered could do my rolls for me to speed things up to get the other two players back in active play.

And I chose not to use Luck to resist the mark on Anoras's hand. That's largely because I wanted to save Luck in case I needed it to save Thad.

But I really want to make my own roll on First Aid for Thad. So please forgive me if I'm making this roll a tad early. (Or should I say a "Thad" early?)

EDIT: With the help of the first aid kit, rolled 9 under!

Ok, so Thad is about 7 yards from the trees, I think. The skeletons come out, taking about three seconds to get there, two seconds to grab him, and four seconds to get back. That gives Cassandra nine seconds.



As Cassandra is aiming at a skeletons, she sees the archers aiming at her... they should shoot all at about the same time.

Fireball: "I can make him wish for death." There is too much pleasure coming out of that statement.

Fireball: "Ask, if you can. I doubt you can find anything out. He's already seen your face."

'Sh' messes up the linguistic feel of the Venasir. Lets call him Busan.

Cassandra is hoping that being in cover and 200 yards away she isn't killed. So will go ahead and try

The archers all fire in about a single second:

Archer #1:

Skill ?? - 12 (range) +3 (acc) + 2 (time) = skill -7 vs 12 is a miss!
Archer #2:
Skill ?? - 12 (range) +3 (acc) + 2 (time) = skill -7 vs 12 is a miss!
Archer #3:
Skill ?? - 12 (range) +3 (acc) + 2 (time) = skill -7 vs 9 is a miss!
You know know archer #3 has skill 15.

Cassandra:

Skill 16 - 12 (range) +3 (acc) + 2 (time) = 9 vs 8 is a hit!
Damage: 8 damage, halved for unliving and 4 wounding to the torso.

Archers #1 and #2 fail fast draw and won't shoot with full aim, Cassandra and #3 make it and will get full aim.

Cassandra:

Skill 16 - 12 (range) +3 (acc) + 2 (time) = 9 vs 8 is a second hit!

Damage: 6 damage, halved for unliving and 3 wounding to the torso... just enough to put that skeleton under HP/2.

Archer #1:

Skill ?? - 12 (range) +3 (acc) + 1 (time) = skill -8 vs 9 is a miss!
Archer #2:
Skill ?? - 12 (range) +3 (acc) + 2 (time) = skill -8 vs 15 is a miss!
Archer #3:
Skill ?? - 12 (range) +3 (acc) + 2 (time) = skill -7 vs 12 is a miss!

So Cassandra scores two hits, while arrows fall all around her. I think the dice just liked her though. (though armor and cover would count for something... though I think 1 more damage severely cramps her style)

************************

Wings is very disappointed in having another skeleton damaged, and fireball is livid. "If he doesn't have anything useful to say I'm taking it out of your hide!" he threatens Anoras.

First aid on Thad succeeds... roll for damage healed from shock, and give additional actions. Also, the "interrogation".

"Viva Haunden!" Cassandra calls out and sticks her tongue out at the Venasir before ducking back behind a tree

Not that this is likely apparent at 200 yards

She is annoyed she didn't slow the skeleton down enough to stop it taking Thad

"Mystic, wasn't the plan before that to use skeletons to retrieve the giant's body to make it into a skeleton? That would have involved the same risk.

"And how could you blame me if the giant doesn't know what I don't know? If I knew what the giant knew, they're be no reason to question the giant."

Sorry, but I'm not sure I understand who's supposed to roll for damage healed from shock and how many die the roll would be. If it's a roll for Anoras, the GM can roll for me.

Basic set page 424.



Anoras will be able to heal two damage on Thad. He's stopped bleeding. Actually getting him conscious... That requires a HT roll after 12 hours, and doing more than that requires skills Anoras doesn't have. With his HT, he stands a good chance of surviving though.
