    "Ronod" will pass 2 healing potions out to each of the other party members who seem to be out of them, so they have them in case they need them...:)
  2. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    My bad.... :D That would be Cugel, Si'Nat, Wilhelm, Kurik, and Gareth, leaving RONDO with five

    Kurik and Gareth gratefully accept the gift.
  3. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    "And with that, I believe that we are now ready."
  4. train The Wildcard!!!...

    "Thank you Rondo"

    (What point is it in the day - near resting time?)

    "Let's see what these guys have..."
    Searching bears, checking condition of weapons, etc.
  5. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    It's a bit after noon, don't need to rest yet until another 3 turns

    The bugbears have nothing on them - no clothing, armor, or treasure. The "clubs" they were using were simply huge pieces of knotted wood.
  6. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    "Come, we shall find somewhere less odorous to rest."
  7. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    "Very well, as we appear to be a bit better stocked than I had first imagined. So, which way?"
  8. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    There needs to be post numbers :)

    Kurik remarks, "Well, as we exit the cave, we can return to the room on the left, head straight, or head to our right."
  9. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    So at this point, "straight ahead" would be the passage going off that was going off to the left earlier and "to the right" would be continuing along the main passage that we could see headed straight at first and then turned left. Let's try "straight ahead" then.

    I do not know hwat came over me.... I am sorry that I lost control and....gulp.... entered the fray..... It must n=be the stress from being in this hole for so long......
  11. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    "You did well. This place is stressful for everyone."
  12. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    You head straight for about 30' when you spot a small group of flying birds coming at you. Neither of you are surprised.

    Party has initiative.
  13. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    *Cugel will switch to his sword.*
  14. TomB Administrative Assistant

    Assuming the birds are big enough, Rondo will fire arrows until they're close enough to attack with his axe...:)
  15. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Si'Nat will prepare to use his sword...

    Or we could use the old "Duck an Cover" techniques used in the atomic bomb drills back in the day...
  16. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    I will cower beneath my shield and wield my ineffective club
  17. DarthFerret Evil Sith Weasel

    Prepares the mace, and assumes a defensive stance (hoping that the archers can take em out quick)
  18. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    They're about a foot long/big, so if that's "big" to you... :)

    Round 1 - Party has initiative

    Rondo shoots an arrow and hits, dropping it.
    Kurik fires into the flock and also fells one.

    The rest of the party braces for the onslaught...

    As they approach, the birds let out a hideous screeching sound... you can see they're brightly colored but the noticeable thing about them is their long beak which looks pretty sharp. They swarm over you...

    One attaclks Gareth but fails to penetrate his armor.
    One attacks Patrick but he dodges out of the way.
    One attacks Cugel but he blocks it.

    Round 2: Birds have initiative.

    One attacks Bertrem but misses.
    One attacks Rondo but hits his shield.
    One attacks Kurik but he easily avoids it.

    Cugel whacks one with his sword and kills it.
    Si'Nat swings but misses.
    Bertrem takes a swipe with his mace but misses.
    Wilhelm blindly strikes out from behind his shield and to no one's surprise, misses.
    Kurik connects with his sword and drops one.
    Gareth misses with his hammer.

    Rondo misses with his axe.

    Round 3 - Bird has initiative.

    The remaining bird attacks Rondo but misses.

    Cugel swings and connects and it takes a solid hit.
    Si'Nat swings but misses.
    Bertrem is also unable to hit the bird.
    Wilhelm gets a lucky hit with his club and finishes it off!
  19. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    What the hell is that.... get it away from me......
  20. train The Wildcard!!!...

    (will pluck some feathers and place them in backpack...)

    "I'm definitely not that adept with my sword - but I wonder who or what riled their feathers..."
