Summary: The silent battle continues. Weapons clashing and people dodging. Abigail finds a spot to stab, at, getting by the Hobgoblin’s defenses and striking it (4).
Round 3 (Begin)
Setup: Abigail, Diadochi, and Yaalin all find themselves engaged in a fight near one another. Sim and Lafetha are close by to one another as well, each with a Hobgoblin attacking them. It doesn’t appear that the Hobgoblins have a strong interest in tactics, compared to the Hn’ti of the mountain who fight more in unison.
Diadochi motions at abigail that he wants her to attack the hobgoblin he's attacking, realizes that she is looking away and can't see him, so he shrugs and tries to hit hobgoblin again. Attack: 10 Damage: 7
Abigail looks like she is unleashing a flurry of expletives... but it is unclear if it is because of her stunning lack of combat prowess thus far or because her words are extinguished before they even leave her foaming mouth.
Summary: The group continues their fight, swinging but not able to break through the defenses of the hobgoblin soldiers. But, one of the Hobgoblin's manages to strike Yaalin (4) when she over-extends herself from her claw strikes. The Hobgoblin fighting Abigail tosses her two blades to the side, with his shield, before landing a grazing cut across her arms (6).
Round 4 (Begin)
Setup: The group is still inside the silent sphere. The group of hobgoblins fighting them one on one, not using any real tactics beyond trying to defeat you before being defeated. Diadochi is near Yaalin and Abigail. Sim and Lafetha are a few feet away from the trio, fighting near eachother.
Diadochi his clearly very upset, just shakes his head, and then moves to flank with Abigail taking the attack if opportunity. And then then taps the hobgoblin on the shoulder with his trunk when the hobgoblin turns around diadochi tries to hit him in the face with his hammer Unable to parse dice roll. and then adds goading strike on top of that 6 additional damage and DC 12 Wis save.
Summary: Lafetha strikes out with her scimiar, landing a nearly fatal blow on the Hobgoblin fighting her (7). Diadochi steps behind the one fighting Abigail, slamming his warhammer into his head, dropping him in one fell swoop. Abigail moves in unison with Diadochi's blow, moving and striking the Hobgoblin he was fighting (5). The Hobgoblins continue pressing their attacks, one of them cutting Lafetha lightly (4). Yaalin slashes with her claws at the opening just created by the hobgoblin's miss (7), while Sim lands a blow (5) against the stunned Goblin's face once his own head returns to normal.
Round 5 (Begin)
Setup: Diadochi, Sim, Yaalin and Lafetha are all fighting still. Abigail can move and gain advantage on any single target by flanking a hobgoblin. All the hobgoblin's are bloody, or nearly bloodied.
Diadochi will attack the one, attacking him "I do hope that your behavior is due to the mind control and not due to deep seeded cultural malice" he swings the hammer behind the leg of the hobgoblin, and then pulls up so the head of the hammer catches behind the hobgoblin's ankle, hopefully spending him to the ground. Attack: 8 Damage: 5 if hits add 6 and DC 12 STR save or be knocked prone.
