After this was completed and every found out who they loved, hated, and what weird trinket we started the game with and guess what they were for. Like those clippings what they hell are they going to do?
Play started with all the PCs, but fox in the town of rockton meeting with two dwarves. They had a job for the party to bring a wagon of supplies to the town of Stowed-ton. The group agreed to the task. The dwarves headed out first as they had to make arrangements at Stowed-ton while the rest of the group began travel with the wagon.
Shortly, into their journey, Fox, noticed the traveling wagon and also the goblins waiting in ambush. Before the Goblins could attack Fox shot an arrow though one of the Goblin archers skull. The rest of the goblins began their assault of the wagon and the party got ready for a fight. Fox decided to help out the party as she recognized someone in the group and they were attacked unprovoked.
The party beat the shit out of the 4 goblins. Hermoine shot a fire bolt right through a goblins chest, Krangor threw an axe into another ones head, and Allora got off a few sneak attacks but got slightly injured. The group kept one goblin alive who told them of a cave where they were keeping all the loot they had been stealing from passing carts. They also noticed that there were 2 dead horses in the street. They investigated the horses and realized they belong to the two dwarves that had set out to Stowed-ton ahead of them. They also saw a trailed of dragged bodies off in the direction of the cave the goblin talked about.
After much debate the group decided to go to the cave. First though, Fox wanted to scout ahead and took the goblin with her for directions to the cave and to make her aware of any traps. She found the cave which was 5 miles away. She then killed the goblin that gave her the info as he was a liability. She ran back to the group to let them know what she had found. The group decided to head to the cave after they were able to convince Galthetes that there was money to be had in the cave and they wouldn't get paid if the people that gave them the job were dead. What a dick face. Tony played some music to try and calm the group, but he sucked and just made the group more angry.
The group arrived at the mouth of the cave which was surround by a thick brush. Fox, Hermoine, and Allora decided to sneak up to see what they could find. They found 2 goblins in a tower and they were able to kill them before the realized what was happening. They then sent Allora up ahead to scout and see if they could find a mysterious bridge that the goblin had mentioned, that was set on fire if they found invaders. Instead she found a room with 3 wolves. Fox being the animal lover that she was went up to them to calm then down, which she gave them a red rocket, and then Krangor pulled out their chains and released them. The wolves ran out of the cave very happy.
In the back of the wolf area there was a poop chute chimney. Allora snuck up it to see what was on the other side, and there she found the bug bear who was the boss of the goblins. The group devised a plan to have Hermoine place an illusion of treasure near the poop chute to distract them while the rest of the group went to attack from behind. Krangor would guard Hermoine. When fox shot an arrow at the near by wall they knew to set off the trap.
The rest of the group continued down the cave until they found a bridge. This must be the bridge that goes on fire they thought! The group could see a Goblin at the top of the bridge with an axe, probably to cut the bridge down. Allora decided to climb up to the top of the bridge sneak behind the goblin and attempt to take him out. She missed terribly. The other members tried to shoot arrows at th goblin. They also all missed. The goblin yelled flood and water started to rush down the cavern. Allora, fox, and Galthetes were able to climb up to the bridge with no issues, but the unathletic Melfias was not so lucky. He was not able to get up in time,but luckily was able to acrobatically dodge the rushing stream of water. He was able to get pulled up to the bridge and was safe. The only issue was that all the goblins now knew the party was there.
Fox went and fired her arrow at the wall to signal to start the trap from Krangor and Hermoine. She next went first into the new room and saw 3 goblins ready to fire their arrows into her. She was able to hit one of them. Next Allora entered the room and tried to attack a goblin, but missed. The goblin soon after hit her and caused a moderate injury. Galthetes was next and went and butchered a goblin. Stabbed the mother fucker right in the face. He felt like the man. Melfias was able to go soon after and tried to viciously mock the poor goblin. Instead he complicated the goblin and the goblin felt even stronger then normal. He was able to heal up Allora which was helpful. The goblin then attempted to shoot at fox, but she dodged, returned fire, and killed another Goblin. The final goblin was taken out by an Allora sneak attack while the goblin was attacking Fox.
Meanwhile with the other pair, Hermoine knew it was time to set her trap. She made a giant golden statue appear near the shoot and Krangor tried to sneak up behind it. Krangor is not so great at sneaking as he is a giant pally in heavy armor and was seen. The bugbear, his pet wolf, and the two goblins decided it was time to attack. Hermoine went and got into a corner with Krangor protecting her. Krangor tried to attack the bug bear but missed but was still able to protect Hermoine. Hermoine began chanting her first major spell ever, Sleep! She casted it on the bug bear and the wolf, but was only able to put the wolf to sleep, but still it was enough. With the rest of the group having taken out the 3 goblins in the other room they began to converge on the bug bear. Melfias was able to cast his first power spell as well, Dissonant whispers! The spell hurt the bug bear and made him run around wildly while giving Krangor another chance to attack… which he missed. No matter! Fox and Allora were able to storm into the room and finish off the bugbear before he could do any real damage. Then as a team building exercise everyone decided to surround the sleeping wolf and stab the shit out of him. Wolf be dead. Like really really dead.
Krangor, the paladin, a warrior of light then decided the best coarse of action would be the cut off the fucking bugbears head to show proof to the locals that he was dead. Brutal. The group then cut off the bug bears fucking head. Allora meanwhile saw a treasure chest and went to open it. Inside she found a jade figurine, 2 health potions, and money totally about 17 gp. She snuck the 2 health potions into her pocket while Galthetes watched cause she is slick like that. He did not notice. She then showed the group the money and the figurine which was determined not to be magical. The group decided to explore the rest of the cave as they had not found who they were looking for. In another room they found one of the original dwarves they had gotten their task form. He was badly beaten and a goblin held a knife to his neck. Hermoine took the head and said to let him go or their will have the same fate as their leader. She also started to juggle a fire bolt around her fingers to show she meant real business. Melfias also made angry faces to help be intimidating. The goblin agreed if he was allowed to live and leave the cave he would let the prison go. They followed him to the mouth of the cave and he did as he said he would. The group was elated to have everything go pretty smoothly and decided to take loot the cave and bring back the supplies to the wagon. They also took a rest as they deserved one.
