Me think it fishy that Duxo would promise not to murder any more sleeping guards and then request a sleep spell... O_< :sherlock:

Poor Duxo - So misunderstood.

Okay, rough mspaint sketch! 4 people in total seen in the cavern, 4 torches burning on the east side. Pool of water on the west. Cave floor rises at the north side and a door lies on the far end. Stalagmites jutting up.
The Floor seems pretty uneven.

Somewhat arbitrary. It's more just for an added visual for the place.

For the sake of planning though; the cavern itself is roughly 40 feet across by 80 long. Suffice it to say, you cannot reach and attack the back two guards in one round (except by ranged)

The front-left guard is the man with the spear, the front-right is the woman.

Goss, you got it all wrong.  He requested a sleep spell then said he wouldn't murder them in their sleep.  Now, waking them up then murdering them's a different story :P

Anyone have an idea on how to get our 2 groups of guards to get close enough together for Nim to put them out?

Have we decided on a method to attack?

Like I said in my post, I personally think we would have the biggest chance of catching them all in the sleep spell if Sigurd approaches them alone.
I think it makes more sense for a group to split up if they were just investigating a noise than if they saw a lone enemy.

And of course there's still the chance of the spell failing, but we would be maximizing our chances if you target all of them.

Do we vote or? How do y'all wanna do this?

Our leader, Sir Sigurd, shall be the one to make the final decision. We are but mewling minions, groveling and kissing his freshly- cleaned feet.

All we petty, insignificant beings do is attempt our feeble forms of persuasion, as he decides how to proceed, and whether our persuading is insubordinate and deserving of death.

I mean, unless you guys want a democracy. Demy-sefrab was pretty clear that Sigurd was team leader, but if we do use the vote for decisions, Auxzali's counts thrice. Once for himself, and twice for Axtrami. As is only natural.

I had to re-check that, so he did(make him leader I mean).

Only Demy-Sefrab may or may not be a traitor luring us to our deaths, remember? :P

Aye, Demy-Sefrab did indeed appoint Sigurd as leader.

Yeah, I'm all for Sigurd wading in to the heat of battle by his lonesome, but the moment bow girl steps away to stay out of sword range she's getting a sling stone in the eye, the sleep spell only covers 10 ft.

Anyway, we've got 2 more days to figure out the optimal plan.

Okey done, i am somewhat back now - I'll start posting again starting tomorrow, provided everyone is still interested in continuing - we all still in?

also, what's the plan? Ghost sounding? Sending Sigurd to the wolves? Another plan?

I'm assuming sometime in the next 24 hours Sigurd is going to do something brave; otherwise Duxo will do something bloodthirsty and stupid. :D

Woah woah woah, you've done your fair share of bloody murder already! :P If Echo doesn't post, I'll use ghost sound then(tonight at Monday) and then Nim can try to put em to sleep, least we'll have tried something to spare their lives, there'll be plenty of opportunity for murder if we fail.

Contents of the bandits haul:
Three large hessian sacks and two small leather pouches, all empty.
One pound of Wildeweed Tobacco Wrapped in Wax paper. (150gp value) (Grown on the outskirts of the Karikun desert near the Sen-Rab border where vegetation starts to thrive, the Wildeweed strain of tobacco leaf is is potent and popular, and shipped across most of Asydia.)

three heavy sacks of grains, flour and rice (30gp value each, but too heavy to cart out.)
One pound of dried apples (20gp value)
1/2 pound of dried meat (20gp value)
Three fragile vials of effervescent liquid, two with a milky red colour and one mostly transparent orange.

One wooden box packed with straw, inside of which (to Auxzali's dismay) lay three beautiful, perfect spheres of glass - the life spheres of three Ouzquin Dremorix people. The carved and painted designs on them were a swirling of thorny vines, the tooth of a great cat, and the full moon. (value: 100gp each)
Two spools of thin, decorative fabric, (40gp value each)

On the guard Auxzali found:
One large, well-crafted Scimitar, Masterwork.
One ornamental, Royal Guard headpiece (40gp)
One small, round shield, gold plated (125gp)
A set of gator-hide armour.
A set of Gator-Hide forearm bracers.
A set of Gator-Hide sandals.
A golden, solid Sen-Rabbin necklet.
Six silver earrings, all taken from the guard's left ear.
The armour, bracers and golden necklet all exude an aura of magic!
Finally, this dangerous job was beginning to show promise!

Should the group choose to strip the bandits of their belongings, they have:
Three shortwords, battered.
One spear.
One short dagger, silver.
One crossbow, 10 bolts.
Two leather suits of armour.
22gp between them all.
Two solid copper sen-rabbin  necklets. (10gp each)
Three silver hoop earrings (15gp each)

I say we strip the guards of all coinage, also Duxo needs a 4th knife.  He might not get to kill them like they deserve for taking him hostage for no reason at all, but gold is always good.   :D

That's what i would do! All you have to do now is convince Zelas and Sigurd. I think Nim will be fine with that somehow, and Auxzali seems a more reasonable sort :p

perhaps playing on those glass spheres will win Zelas over :D and Sigurd.? I'm sure he'll understand!
