moves up and lands a solid blow on the orc, but unfortunately the blow simply glances off the orc's armor.Vandarzryx
's mighty roar causes the center orc to stop and have a bit a think about attacking a drake and his prospects for the future, but when he sees his two comrades charging on regardless he finds it in himself to follow suit. Seeking to punish the orc for his temerity, the drake lunges his neck forward attempting to snatch the orc and toss him about, but he aims a bit too high allowing the drake to duck and roll underneath the drake's lunge.
The dwarf runs up to the orc Alexander
had injuried and with a rough O-motion strikes the calves of his feet so the orc lands straight on his back, lets the momentum carry the war hammer up into the air (and a bit too close to Alexander
's face to his liking) and with a bone-cracking thud slams it down on the orc's chest. The blow cracks several ribs and knocks all the air out of the orc, who doesn't look like he'll be going anywhere soon.
"You've got good footwork, lad, but you've gotta follow through an' thump the bastards but good. No prices in fightin' for being the fanciest bastard on the field, so stick to killin' the other bastard 'fore he kills you, yeah?" The tone of his voice is half scolding/ribbing, and half instructional, almost like a veteran looking out for a rookie on his first field of battle.
As the other two orcs rush to aid their fallen leader, Ssryn
bursts forth from behind the tree she had hidden herself and dives dagger first into one of the orcs. It's difficult to say who's more surprised, the orcs or the dwarf, but the winner is probably the orc who doesn't even get time to finish his last breath before he crumples to the ground stone dead.
The dwarf remarks to Alexander
upon seeing this "Uuh, yeah, sorta like that, I s'ppose.... friend of yours, I hope?"
The final orc charging them clearly regards the naga as the more dangerous foe, and launches a furious attack against her. Both the orc's strikes hits true, but he must be unaccustomed to fighting scaled opponents, as the angles are off and the scales absorb most of the impact, turning what could have been serious blows into flesh wounds.
The orcs around the drake finish maneuvering, and are now surrounding him. Normally being surrounded by just 3 orcs wouldn't worry Vandarzryx
, but he took quite a beating from the crash landing and the volley of arrows, so he'll have to be lucky to keep from any serious harm this time.
The first orc lunges for an area at his tail where the scales are weaker than most of his body, but the drake anticipated this and whips around at the last time, causing the blade to glance off the scales on his tail. Luckily the same movement completely throws off the second orc's attack, who completely misses striking the air where the drake's knee was just moments earlier. The last orc aims for the eye, but the drake sees him coming and effortlessly parries the blow with claws.Lauren
runs up to the orc attacking Ssryn
and deliver a well-practiced blow to the side of the orc, who staggers and bleeds a bit, but remains standing.
Alexander's blow glances off the DR.
orc literally cannot make the Resolve check, so he autofails that one. He takes a full 1d6=6
stress damage, and his save is 1d20+2=20
so he's solid.
The attack/shove misses.
dwarf attack roll 1d20+2=16
, damage roll 1d12=10
subdual - 1DR so 9 total.
Orc 1-1 save 1d20+2=6
fails, and is knocked out.
Orc 1-2 is a standard without tough, so he dies as soon as the threat is confirmed.
Orc 1-3 attacks Ssryn, attack 1 1d20+3=22
hits, deals 1d8+1=5
lethal - 2DR is a total 3 damage.
attack 2 1d20+3=15
, will spend AD 1d8=2
hits, damage 1d8+1=7
-2 DR is a total of 5 damage, 8 all in all.
orc 2-1 attack 1d20+3=8
orc 2-2 attack 1d20+3=4
orc 2-3 attack 1d20+3=11
+ 2 from flanking that I forgot actually hits. Parry attempt (you only get one per round) 1d20+1=20
Lauren attack check (gets flanking bonus) 1d20+6=14
hits, damage roll 1d10+2=10
lethal - DR 1 is 9 damage. Damage save 1d20+2=18
