Glad it's helping!


Anoras will continue looking for the prisoners. If reasonably possible, she will watch for Thad and Cassandra, but her first priority is finding the captives.

Thad blocks the skeleton's spear, and tries to back away from the warrior's sword, but he's too slow and takes a brital slash across the chest. He steps back into the melee and hammers away at the Venasir warrior in retaliation.

OoC: Successful block. Failed Dodge + Retreat against sword, take 6 more damage (not enough to force any HT rolls). Successful consciousness check to act. Step back to starting space, Rapid Strike against Venasir warrior. 2 successful hits for 16 and 18 damage.

The warrior misses his block by inches, and the axe slips past his defenses. he takes 16-3 DR = 13 damage and 13*1.5 = 19 injury.



He falls to the ground with negative HP, but remains conscious.



Will thad strike him again or redirect that strike to another target?

OoC: I'll go ahead and redirect to the adjacent standing skeleton if possible.

The skeleton catches the axe on its blade. (rolled a 7)


Its been five seconds since I noted Anoras was halfway to her destination, so I think she has something like 35 seconds left until she gets there. She is on the edge of the trees and can see the battle going on.



The enemy has no unconscious casualties yet, but two warriors have been shot with arrows and reduced to under 2/3rds HP, and and one skeleton and one warrior are prone (in a pile), both under 0 HP.



Archer #3 shoots at Cassandra... potential 4 damage to the left hand.
Skill ?? - 10 (range) + 2 (time) + 3 (Acc) = skill -5 vs 7
Archer #2 aims at Cassandra (three seconds total)
Archer #1 aims at Cassandra (two seconds total)


Fireball throws his projectile in a long high arc at cassandra
Skill ?? - 10 (range) +1 (aim) + 4 (aiming at hex) = skill -5 vs 6
Perfect success. Fireball's fireball throwing skill is 11.

4 (9/2) damage vs effective DR 2 (torso DR vs fire is 4).

Given the arc of the throw, the fact its at the edge of the distance, and the all-out defense (dodge) that was taken, I will allow dodging this attack.


The Bird Wing sorcerer sends another spell at Thad's mind
Skill?? - 3 (range) vs 8
Thad Resists: Will 9 + 5 = 14 vs 15


Thad is stunned. He must take a do nothing his next turn and then roll vs stunning (at +5 from the amulet). It is revealed the Sorcerer has a will of 12.


The Skeleton with the sword swings at a random location on Thad: its a hit! rolled a 12. Its revealed that skeleton has sword skill 13. potentially 5 cutting damage to the right foot.



The Skeleton that was knocked down with its ribs crawls into Thad's hex.
The Swordsman he knocked down recovers from the blow.
The spear skeleton steps into the "Hex of Death" and attacks a random location...at least it meant to. Instead it critically misses, tripping over the all the people in the hex and dropping its spear.
A sword skeleton moves two hexes to get close to Thad and makes a wild swing. It strikes the torso (rolled a 6)... but it will be unable to penetrate Thad's armor.

I'm confused. You say Thad resisted the spell, but then say he's stunned. Is the stun some lesser effect that occurs on a resist?

Sorry: "Thad's resistance fails"

Anoras (thinking): We are so outnumbered! I have to get to where I can release the captives so we have a chance. Otherwise....

Thad's mind goes momentarily blank from the sorcerer's spell. Fortunately, his finely trained combat instincts still allow him to block the attack by the skeleton, and the impact of the blow snaps him out of his reverie. He growls at his enemies, with renewed determination to crush their skulls under his axe.

OoC: Lucky block on the attack, even with Stun penalties. Successful recover at the end of this turn.
