Let's get initiative going, folks.

I rolled 1d20+1, the result is 14, 1 = 15.
I rolled 1d20+2, the result is 9, 2 = 11.

Henrik responds, "Two questions. How many and how hungry are the kobolds?" He adds, "I couldn't possibly eat another bite," after putting one final dried apricot in his mouth as juice and saliva pour down his chin.

Initiative
I rolled 1d20+2, the result is 19, 2 = 21.

I realize that the apricot is dried and therefore it does not have it's own juice. That makes it 100% drool (but probably fruit flavored). And it appears an IC comment really helps on initiative rolls.

Just saying.

Vandersrike, who has been storing his rations carefully, simply nods at Henrik.

Looks like Henrik and Vexandi get to act first.

As of this moment, you're all seated (effectively prone). See the IC thread for the map; there are visibility issues to contend with because it's night, and you are in a cave.

On Vex's turn, he's going to stand up and cast Dancing Lights, aimed 70ft directly south(?) of him towards the cave entrance, in that hallway area leading out of room 7.

It took me freakin' forever to notice the pink ring; I'm color blind...

Talanall

Sorry, man. I'm struggling to find contrasting color pairs that don't also screw with your vision. It's a process, I guess. Red/green is obviously bad. Red/blue is better, but clearly not ideal.

Would use yellow/blue, but honestly I don't think it'll give good contrast (and it probably will come out green).

Can you discern purple?

Obsidian_Spoon
Obsidian_Spoon's picture

Haha, it's ok. Once I read the map description and know it's there to look for, I can find it. Once I find it, I'm good.

You don't have to keep making adjustments for me.

Shades of blue work great. Oranges are good. I can see purple if it's not close in color to a blue; otherwise I just assume it IS blue.

Talanall
Talanall's picture

Okay, I think I can make orange happen.




Can you differentiate all of these from each other? And do any of them look similar enough to one another that it would be inconvenient if I used them?

Also, let's hear from DDMW before I update. If I get his action, I can push all the way through the critters' turn.

As long as colors 1 and 4 aren't side by side, I'm fine with the above.

Been crazy busy. Sorry. I have a friend that decided to move and move fast, so I've spent the last two full days helping him move everything into storage/friend's house so he can take a job in Kentucky.

Being prone sucks. Henrik will stand up and cast light on his waraxe. "I cannot abide a creature that does not understand it's place in the food web!"

I'm fairly certain that you have mistaken Hob #5 for a centipede. And Evrinel is prone. You probably wanna do something different anyway.

Errr wow. Just as well, really, those rolls deserve to be scrapped. I really shouldn't try to read the map while still pondering the puzzle in the other window. Ummm. So stand, draw sling while standing, just in case I need it for something. And move to 1 square s of 8.

I feel like this encounter might be retribution for linking to that cave centipede video. But misery loves company. I hope this is cathartic for everyone.

Talanall
Talanall's picture

This is a random encounter. I'd claim to have included it on the table as retribution, but the truth is that I compiled the table months before you shared that little slice of hell with the rest of us.

What are Rasnak and Vandersrike doing?

Besides hungrily licking the tip of their beaks?

Vandersrike gets up and moves due east to look and see if the group is going to be flanked by burrowing centipedes. He can't sneak attack a swarm and this makes him slightly pouty.

Talanall
Talanall's picture

Fortunately, these aren't swarming. There are only about a dozen of them, although "only" may be a little bit of a stretch when the smallest is the size of a housecat, and the largest is roughly on par with a Great Dane.

Cronono

As we all recall from another horror filled campaign, a housecat sized centipede is appalling.

This is doubly true when your character's race is described as being Tiny when advantageous.

Talanall
Talanall's picture

Ah, well. At least the kobolds are getting a good meal out of it. And Henrik, too, evidently. I think DDMW recently telegraphed some willingness on his part to collapse "enemy" and "food item" into a single category.

Wæs se grimma gæst Grendel haten,
mære mearcstapa, se þe moras heold

Cronono
Cronono's picture

He's enlightened, that one.

Also, the more centipedes the Kobolds get, the more peaches for those who are less inclined to suck out the innards of a succulent segmented leg.

Obsidian_Spoon
Obsidian_Spoon's picture

I would imagine Vex has no qualms about eating insects, either.

deadDMwalking
deadDMwalking's picture

Henrik has no qualms about encouraging others to eat the flesh of the fallen and leaving better food for himself. And if kobolds can live on it, he'd probably be willing to eat a creepy crawly rather than risk starvation. Let's say he's 2 days without food from eating bugs, 5 days from eating sentient creatures, and 10 days from eating another dwarf. He's got his boundaries, but he knows that they're not permanent and unchanging.

Darker

Yay! There will be crunchies to eat tonight!

Rasnak figures Vandersrike has the right idea and follows the other kobold to head of any flanking that their dinner may try.

Obsidian_Spoon

Vex wants to delay until after the cinterpedes.

deadDMwalking

I can only look at the map on my phone and I can't quite make out if I can charge 9 or not. I'm going to assume I can and go for it. If I fall short, that's cool, too.

Henrik rushes forward, lighted axe held aloft. "You're hungry? Eat this!"
