Hello constants, today is yet another day for the kingsmen. These days the royalty has been occupying it's time with defending their baronies, castles and ownerships from the invading crusades that dominate the land. The royal messengers have gone throughout the lands in order to garner reputation for their kings and to attempt enlistment into their militia.
Those who are veterans of first engagement have already muddied their boots.
For those who wish to start as a fresh soldier under the kings banner, the rules are here:

This first calling is to see who we have in the barracks, whether they are new recruits or those just returning from their brief hiatus amongst the peace.

Your gonna have to go with wood plate I believe. Boulder armor takes 4 cap, and the glaive takes 3. Means you'd need another 2 to fit it on your person.

Alright Kingsmen, I have called you here today to lay upon you some pressing news. The Crusaders are installing an intricate system to overthrow the hierarchy, this system we believe is garnering much praise in sewing seeds of contempt towards our King. With the previous information which Luke had gathered from the corpses we have used the maps and our own spies to learn how far this system reaches. Surprising enough, from what we have learned it has almoste saturated itself amongst our local homeland and even into the neighboring Barony. Today, we are sharing with you the areas in which we need you to go. Each area will have it's own primary objective and a secondary objective, Your goal is to complete the Primary objective and return Home. If you also complete the secondary objective there will be rewards and much praise from the king. Alright, the map here that i'm showing are our local targets for this fight, we believe that if we can secure our homeland that we may have a more firm grip with our army. I will list out the places, with primary and secondary objectives, and you will decide which area to target.

First off-
Gar Keep- we believe that Baron Gar is housing knights of the crusade in his keep.
Primary: We need you to find all crusaders and kill them
Secondary: Capture Baron Gar (alive)

Terris Pass- We believe this is the route which is leading them and their supplies into our lands
Primary: Kill any enemies of the king and close the pass
Secondary: Collect as many supplies as you can

Jarvis Town- The town is seemingly overrun with traitors of our country
Primary: Find and kill any crusader and crusade loyalist
Secondary: Instill faith and morale intot he townsfolk in so for them to return to being loyal to our King

and finally, the map that Luke sent to the Elders
???- a den of bandits, unknown
Primary: Clear the are of all vagabonds and vagrants, use force if necessary
Secondary: Make as many loyal to the king as you can.

These are your targets, you may decide which to tackle first or you may split into groups and take them on seperately- a word of caution though, Jarvis Town and the Pass are a very dangerous place, always be aware that you could be outnumbered at any time.
No. 452893 ID: 44f50a

GAR Keep would be best bet right now. Our main unit consists of siege and defense units and in most cases, sieges are ALL about choke points. The other battles will pit us against many enemies and with our numbers, we may not be ready for that just yet.
No. 452896 ID: 886a4d

> Gar Keep:
It's a Siege! I have no idea how to accomplish the secondary objective beyond killing everything BUT the Baron. We aren't exactly given stun guns.

This has my vote for me, Dakdo and 1-2 tanks.

> Terris Pass:
Probably the most straightforward of them all. Smash the enemy, grab the loot.

Probably going to need all of us. This is their logistics train and they'll want to gaurd it heavily

> Jarvis Town:
Primary won't be too hard. Secondary we would need someone with persuasion and he disapeared early on last battle.

We really do need to either get someone with persuasion playing or have one of us take it. Save this for later,

> ????:
Probably the second easiest task, might need a siege weapon to crack the walls though. Again need someone with persuasion for the secondary objective. Probably need someone with Pact as well.

Primary probably could be handled by a small group. Secondary could be ignored.

My suggestion is to split up for the ???? and Gar Keep. Then take the pass next, then Jarvis Town.
No. 452902 ID: e3814c

I agree with your threat estimation but I think we should Gar first as ??? can be best done when we have persuasion and pact.

And so a new day shines upon the Kingsmen, but it is not a day that goes to rest- no, for this day belongs to thwarting tyranny and betrayel. The kingsmen see before them the ravaged land of Baron Gar, he is an odd man. So paranoid in keeping his land that he would tear up the ground and leave barriccades to protect from invisible villains. But today he has real enemies, and they wish to bring his writhing facade kicking and screaming to the king.

The current Roster:
Sir Robes
and the beasts they bring with them.

As the players can see, the spawn has expanded. hard to see i know, but the rule is as such, you may spawn outside of the spawn area only if one section of yourself is occuppying a spawn point. And also, may upgrades and equipment swaps have been made- I will need an updated list of all characters current equipment held with them and brouth into today's engagement.

I shall spawn at b6. I bring with me my Gungnir. That is all.

I could be wrong, but isn't that past your capacity? Unless your equipping the horse with the stone plate.

Catapult spawns A7.

Damn. Doesn't look like there much here to use for materials, or ammo. Guess we can rip up cobblestones or fire the boulder knight again, though.
No. 453193 ID: 886a4d

Kali looks the field over and nods. "Your right, not much here." Her eyes narrow and she then grins. "I bet those would make good ammunition for your baby Dakdo." She points at the plentiful barricades littering the road and countryside.

Everyone spawns in succesfully, but as an unexpected event O'Lynn is pushed one square forward. The Keep does not show signs of acknowledging your presence yet, so the turn ends with no conflict.

Round 1 over, Round 2 begin- still surprise rounds

Kali shoves the playfull beast off her and strides forward hoping to inspect those barriers more closely.

Move to F6. Look at the barricades to determine material and if Gungnir can overshoot them adequetly or do they need to be removed.
No. 453356 ID: 92d144

Dakdo moves the catapult to C6, and himself to B6.

He loads on 3Cap worth of cobbles from the road.

Can we see past or through those barricades, or is there the chance there are unseen foes waiting behind them to ambush us?

(Yeah, I know my ID changed. I promise I'm still me and not a bunch of evil mind control bugs. I'm having a hell of a time reaching this one site, for no reason I can discern.)

Everyone makes their moves with no trouble. Those who are closest to the barricades notice that these barricades are made from unnearthed palisade trunks tied together. If there were someone strong enough to carry the palisade piece by piece they could make an effective barrier with them. Still no sign of movement from the front gate.

Round 3 begin- still unnaccousted.
No. 453591 ID: 8042f4

What are the chances that these guys have a ballista? We should try to avoid the center of the map for right now.
Luke to I4, Drag to G12.
No. 453594 ID: 1987d1

Catapult to E6, Dakdo to D6.

Dakdo pulls up another load of cobblestones and loads 'em in. We've now got 6Cap worth of ammo prepped and loaded.

If they do have anything like that, I could always cannibalize the barricades to build us siege cover to advance under.

Move to G5 and try pulling a log off of the barricade at H6. If successful move to E5 and load it into the catapult.
No. 453611 ID: 1987d1

Ooh, if that works, we can fire it through the air and use it blow down the gate as a flying battering ram!

...we don't have to do something silly like knock and ask that they surrender quietly, do we?

Is anyone in this group able to detect traps? (Our thief Luke, perhaps?). I'm thinking if the Baron has rebelled and is holed up for siege, he may have placed traps along the approach.

All units approach the keep cautiously, and a lone traveler approaches in the hopes to aid the kings army. But this time it seems the kingsmens action do not go unnoticced- a beast emerges from the large gate, this large green monster lumbers out heavilly chained and controlled by a single man.

End round 3- Round 4 Kingsmen

Kail narrows her eyes and judges the distance. Then looses and arrow at the warrior controlling the beast. She shoots the Warrior at L8. Hoping the beast will bash the gate down for them.
No. 453789 ID: 1987d1

Dakdo takes a look at the monster, and shrugs.

Then he loads another 3Cap worth of cobblestone into the catapult, and fires at L7. Should take care of the beast, and knock down the door.

(That should be 12Cap worth of cobbles, + a palisade piece if Kali was successful in the air now).

>Remember it's not nice to kill people unless we know they are enemies.
Pretty sure red automatically means enemy. Our diplomat is free to correct me if I'm... oh right, he fell tragically into a coma during our last encounter. Nevermind.

Luke moves back to H8. (I mean look at the size of that thing, I wouldn't want to be within 2 squares of it) Drag moves to I11 and moos loudly.
No. 453808 ID: 1987d1

As he watches his ammo in flight, Dakdo idly wonders if taking up four squares means the ogre takes 4x catapult damage. It is an area effect after all...
No. 453813 ID: 652c2b

whoah whoah hold on guys, I'VE GOT MONSTER TAMING.

Rosco: tame the beast.

also whose bull is that in front of me??

File 134746378163.png - (30.47KB , 1197x418 , round1us.png )

Kali unleashes an arrow that lands directly into the soft spot of the warriors neck, killing him instantly. At the same time Rosco attempts to sway the beast, he almost accomplishes this until the ogre is pelted with cobblestone and then skewered with a palisade post. The beast grabs up a barricade and throws it at rosco but comes up short. Then it begins it's rampage towards the catapult which caused it so much pain.

Round 5- Kingsmen
No. 453887 ID: 1987d1

Oh. Damn. Sorry Rosco. If I'd seen your request, I would have held my fire. Next time we encounter a rampaging monster I'll give you a chance.

...well, at least this means I can use the catapult to lure the ogre somewhere? They both seem to have 2 move, so I can keep that up till I run out of map, I guess.

Catapult to C8, Dakdo to B8, loads 3CU more cobbles.

A flurry of attacks, arrow and some cobblestone forces the creature to accept death. It's body falls to the ground like thunder in the sky. Luke and Khangash head towards the door with caution. A quick reminder to Khangash though, his horse can move 6 spaces including diagonal spaces. Luke knocks on the large wooden exterior but no response.

Catapult E6, Dakdo D6. Loads moar cobbles.

Hmm. Maybe when I get to the barricades, I should be cannibalizing them. If they don't open the gates, or the interior arrangement of walls is inconvenient, we could use a good covered battering ram.

You two are moving to the same tile. Unless Kali plans on riding Juggernaut into battle, one of you should change coordinates.

(to chirps regarding this post)Can we make it know what equipment is on the warrior since robes is getting close enough to claim it? There's a good chance that there are more warriors inside with the same equip, and it will be handy to know their atk/def.
No. 454268 ID: 886a4d

Actually since Kali is the only one who damaged the warrior it means no one else can claim it. However you can loot equipment still.

Everyone takes their move and Khangash collects the claim. All units who had aided in killing the ogre gain 1 assist kill each(which is considered one claim).

the warrior looks to have hardened leather and a shortsword

This is correct, He cannot claim a kill that he was not involved in, but he can take the deceased's items.

My open salvo should have hit the door. It didn't have an effect. I'd rather open fire on the people behind the door when it opens.

The Kingsmen make their move. One of the kingsmen notices a strang phenomena happening, the bull seems to have multiplied- a few times. There are now 4 bulls in play.

Rosco apologizes for missing so many turns! He's, uh, been having too many drinks with the Chrono Wizard.

He tries to make up for it by seducing the ogre at P12
No. 454521 ID: 1987d1

...who's controlling the extraneous bulls? What do we do with 'em? ...make steaks?

The Baron Gar isn't there! He's either fled, dead, or is hiding deeper in the fortress.

Suggested strategy: use the door as a choke point. Fighters hold the line, ranged people will rain death as support. I'll let fly with the catapult when things start to clump up to get through the door (they're a little too spread out now).

Rosco, I suggest you single out a single ogre to try and turn, and the rest of us will try to avoid pissing it off.

Catapult to H7, Dakdo G7, shoving the bull out of the way if I have to. Loads cobbles (24/100).
No. 454526 ID: 1e72ae

If the bull multiplied 4 times, are they all mine to control? If so, K4-L4 to K5-L5, J9-K9 to K8-L8 (and picking up the sword and armor if possible, I just want to be able to tell which is which later), C1-D1 to E3-F3, and Dragline(G7-H7) to I7-J7.
Can the bulls pick up items off the ground? Can they get cobblestone? Can they load it themselves?

Back up to J5-K6, cautious of the magical bulls appearing.

Unless Rosco can tame the ogre at p12, through the walls. If he can, then Khangash instead moves to M9-M10 and hits the warrior there with both a glaive strike and a horse trample. But I doubt he's pursuasive enough to seduce and orge through a wall.

I move to L7 (if i can get though the mess of bulls) and take cover behind Juggernaut. I also prepare to heal Juggernaut or Juroko if they get hurt. If neither get hurt I shoot the warrior at N10 (If I can't have dependent moves like this then I'll just get ready to heal)

MOST IMPORTANTLY, could some tanky person fill the hole at 6L? We can't have a read chock point with out it.

Everyone takes their moves. Luke and Robes greet the which but she does not seem to have agreeable social standards. She waves her hands the extra bulls disappear, but infront of luke and robes are doppelgangers of themselves. The doppelgangers just parrot what they did. An ogre moves up and grabs O'Lynn, then sends him flying. O'Lynn takes 2 damage from the fall.

Everyone makes their moves. Khangash pokes at the ogre and onlyy one damage gets through his hide. Kali shoots at the ogre, and it stacks with Khangash's attack dealing the whole five. The ogre swings at Juroko's shield, but not strong enough to destroy it. Luke steals from his doppelganger, and the witch moves forward to give him another. Robes give his doppelganger a hi-five, and as he turns around he is slapped in the face by another doppelganger, and then is slapped in the back of the head by the first. The witch laughs histerrically at her own humor. Rosco attempt to woo a wall.

Okay, Dakdo fits one final load of cobbles in the catapult.

That's 30Cap of cobbles in the catapult now, plus another palisade.

As the witch doesn't seem inclined to help, and the enemy refuses to bunch up further...

Then I turn to the battle as I continue.

(these ogres have 3 def and >10/12 health, just writing for self reference later) Drag takes one final hit at the ogre that should help in bringing it down.
Save the shot for a bit Dakdo; with Juggernaut's help we should do enough damage for 30hp total at the end of this turn. If it has more than that, we'll have a lot of trouble dealing with the other 3, especially without the aid of a full catapult.

Everyone makes their actions. There is a flurry of attacks which finish off the ogre at the door. An arrow deals 1 damage to an enemy warrior. Sir robes has small talk with the witch, while luke 'kills' an illusory doppelganger.

A whirlwind of attacks goes out. The bull collects the ogre body giving assist claims of 1 to juggernaut, kali, and dragline the bull. The catapult looses a mighty bolley of debris at the northern ogre, this causes them to go into a bloodfrenzy. Two warriors are struck dead by the kingsmen but as the ogres advance towards the group a third unsuspecting warrior is grabbed and tossed out of the way. His scream can be heard throughout the keeps courtyard as his body flies through the air only to succumb on landing. Rosco hoots and grunts, making a decent arguement on how the ogres should not be oppressed by these slavering fiends, and the ogre is swayed by this display- One ogre now fights with the Kingsmen for 1 engagement only. Rosco may control this ogre. The ogres stats are omitted, but rosco can command actions that the kingsmen have witnessed.

Everyone makes their move. Luke claims a body. There are arrows and stabs directed at the ogres, but where a normal creature would be long since dead their bodies seem to only be moved by the utter rage that engulfs them. Knowing this the friendly ogre interposes himself between the two blood frenzied ogres and the rest of the kingsmen. The friendly ogre endures 6 damage.

Dakdo stops spacing out (really, he's the party's mad tinker, who knows where his head was), and move the catapult to J7, and himself to J6. Loads cobbles (11/100).

Ooh, interesting- so the Ogres have a berserker rage that keeps them moving even after fatal damage. I wonder if we could use the bodies to distil potions that have the same effect... wasn't someone going to toy with water magic or alchemy?

I am slowly recounting the claims, but for now the current players will need to list any changes to stats and any new equipment. Now because you have a collective rogue amongst you you get a free preview of the next floor before engagement.

Also when you are listing your stats make a note of how many claims and claim assists you believe you have collected from first engagement and make another of second engagement.

Good luck, and see you when you get done prepping.

Last minute upgrades complete! I used the last of my intermission mana to conjure up some clocks, break them up for parts, and make the enchantments necessary. Used clockwork on the bows, and used pieces of the metal casings to reinforce the leather.

As near as I can tell, this is right, which gives Dakdo 6 claims total.

...yes. It hasn't mattered though, since I've been moving in lockstep with the catapult, which has a pathetic move of 2.

Any Ideas on tactics? I am thinking of forming up in a corner and making a choke point that our tanks and healers can hold though knocking out the floor.
No. 461486 ID: 86c3a7

>Any Ideas on tactics?
Dakdo plans to look for something to Macgyver, or failing that, to find some application for his magic, if possible. No way in hell I'm closing to melee a dragon with a dagger.

A manufactured choke point sounds reasonable, unless the drakes can fly over pit, or they have ranged fire breath. Or worse, AOE fire breath, which would mean we'd be best off spreading out.

Good luck picking up some assist kills this time, Finn! Spread your shots around. We'll get you that water magic yet.
No. 461491 ID: 8042f4

I can loan you my spare sword if you want it.

There's a chance they can do the knockback thing that the ogres did (or they could have area of effect fire breath) It would also take a fair number of turns to make it because there are no good corners. We should probably do something to separate them before they can make it to us and focus fire on one of them.

Or we could just run to the stairs and bypass this battle entirely.
No. 461493 ID: 86c3a7

Actually, it occurs to me our best tactic might be to focus fire on one drake while Rosco turns the other.
No. 461530 ID: fe4599

I know we can knock out four floor tiles a turn by the raw (not counting what untrained louts could get away with if gm lets us) so cutting enough to make a choke point is possible. But as >>461493 pointed out befriending one of the drakes and rushing the other might be the best strategy.

>As long as Dakdo continues to haste me I shall continue to shoot it.
I plan to maintain the haste until the drake gets close enough to attack us, then I'm switching to slowing it, so it only gets to attack every other turn (potentially, allowing us to attack in waves- move in and melee on the 'safe' round, retreat and hold position on the 'unsafe' round).

(sorry, I missed this the first time) I had 5 kills at the start of battle, and dealt damage to the dragon and I guess 3 ogres (You didn't list me as moving or taking an action on the last turn) which would I think bring me up to 10.(the drake was worth 2, right? >>467126) I would like to get that mug feat if I could.

Dakdo, can I get a damage upgrade for my sword? Dealing 3 damage isn't much anymore. Can I get a fang or a claw from the dragon?
No. 476236 ID: 34cbef

yes dakdo will get assist claims with the ogres.

and luke has a choice from 2 different feats.

Opportunity knocks - When a player strikes an enemy that can hold equipment he also pilfers a single item (which he is able to hold) from that opponent. Must declare the use of this ability


Hacking strike - a character strikes a monstrous enemy at such precise locations or in precise ways as to tear, sunder, or cleave certain parts off that monster based on damage. Must declare use of this ability
No. 476279 ID: 1e72ae

They are both very good options, and while Hacking strike is extremely useful against monsters; my space specialization (all of my equipment together comes out to 1/5) and my low overall damage would make it less useful than having a better way to steal. It took me a few hours to finally decide though. I pick Opportunity knocks. (the name is awesome!) I also put my spare sword in my inventory for the next battle.(I'm gonna' throw it at something!)

Well, I suppose, as good knights of the kingdom, we should announce the charges and demand he surrender himself to be brought before the king. Then, if that fails, we attempt to subdue him, hopefully non-fatally (since live capture is a mission objective).

Rosco's going to need one hell of a lucky roll for him to surrender though, I think.

We still have the set of manacles. (that I'm carrying) Should we wait until I disarm him to use them? I'll let anyone use/carry them, but I think I'm the only one with any space who can take a surprise hit and live. Or I could loan Juroko my lightened sword so he could carry the manacles; it would take him 8/4 turns to reach the baron, but it could work.

I don't think manacles work that well on an armored Lord in full kit standing before you. He'll resist, you know? I would think we'll need to immobile or distract him long enough to clap him in irons. (I see several ways we might be able to do that... maybe Bolas, or grappling, or taking away his weapon).

For the moment, my battle plan is to open by hasting Juroko. With my upgraded time magic, the buff should last 2 rounds. That should give him the move to close enough to occupy the baron.
No. 476787 ID: 51a2e0

Right then. I'll handle 'Lord' GAR, you guys make sure whatever he brings forth to deal with us is dealt with. Any buffs, trades for better equipment for the task will be appreciated. So I will accept the lighter sword and hasting.

No. 476794 ID: 8042f4

Trade it is. You now have a Prestigious longsword. (which I have nicknamed Dragon's Fang until it gets enough upgrades for a true name) It has a capacity of 1 and damage of 4. Take the manacles with it, because it is the only thing we have that takes 1 cap other than herbs. I'll take your sword for a bit, which gives me 2 identical normal longswords! I will probably chuck one in this battle. Because the manacles and Fang weigh the same amount as the normal sword, there will no capacity changes. I'll want that sword back after battle though.

It will take me 3 turns to reach him straight up unless he moves forward. I will then steal his stuff and let you go for the prize. Sound good?

Everyone makes their moves. A flurry of attacks go at the ogre, arrows and clubs and the rending slash of a drake, and as expected it dies. A massive attack hits the dragon, consisting of warpillar and arrows- but the dragons thick hide soaks it all. Taking down this dragon is starting to look like a team effort. Luke takes the Barons Crown, which deglamours some sort of illusion spell on the baron revealing his undead visage. The baron seemed to have been a lich this whole time, but Juroko doesn't care as he leaps at the Baron and chains him up fairly nicely. Rosco meanwhile feels the sudden urge to call out for help and answering the call is some sort of magic Construct bearing the Kings crest. The dragon is slowed by dakdo's magic.

Illusion magic, huh? ...I put the crown on, assume the baron's appearance then command the dragon to stop using the book? Nvm; I would do that, but I really really want those dragon parts for items. It makes a fine backup plan for if we start to lose horribly.

Luke moves to J14 to throw his final sword at the fire dragon then falls back to L14. Drag moves to F4-G4 to engage the ogre when he comes up the stairs. Maybe Juroko should search the baron's person for a phylactery once they get out of range? If his soul is in danger, the baron should stop all struggles.

If you have a phylactery, it kind of defeats the purpose to keep it on your person. If he's got one, it would be hidden elsewhere.
