Zyltris swings his morningstar hard at the Goblin archer but catches a branch and misses his target.
In the same moment Beetlejuice charges through the thicket. His longsword carving a path ahead of him as he runs. The noise of charging chain mail causes the goblin to turn around to face his attackers.On his upswing, Beetles sword catches the Goblin square in the chest, slicing him from naval to neck, badly injuring him.
OOC: Thanks Beetle that keeps things tidy. Nice shot btw
Goblin Archers Constitution Saving Throw 9 vs Synas Spell Save DC 13
Goblin takes 5 of cold damage
The Goblin Archer breathes heavily and raises his bow towards Beetle in a last effort to deal some vengeance. As he latches an arrow, Syna steps out of the fog, forming a shivering frost on the Goblin Archers bloody naked body. Unable to resist the Goblin falls rigid, frozen solid and dead.
High on the opposite ridge a war horn blows. A frenzy of heavy panicked footsteps follows, breaking free from the bushes on the other embankment.
"Be ready friends!!!" Beetle exclaims, "One more goblin here but something else is coming, may not be goblins though by the sound of the footsteps." With that said Beetle eyes up the 2nd goblin preparing for his next strike.
OOC: The Goblin archer currently stands about 30ft away. The Scimitar carrying Goblin is currently about 25ft away but has a steep slide down and climb up to get to the party. His next attack will have a disadvantage. Any attack against him before he reaches the top will have advantage.
Leaping through the brambles, Zyltris charges towards the goblin, swinging his Morningstar, determined, this time, to hit his target. The goblin watches his new adversary run towards him, raises an arm and deflects the attack before it can connect. He turns to face Beetle, bears a toothy grin and clashes his sword against his shield. He points and the Paladin, it’s husky voice yelling, “GUTHASH!” and beckons Beetle to step forward.
Beetle and the Goblin clash fiercely. The goblin roars, engulfing Beetle in a cloud of foul earthy breath and saliva. The familiar sound of steel on steel spreads through the thicket as the pair go toe to toe.
The Goblin swings his shield in an attack, Beetle ducks under the swinging arm. His counterattack, convincing. A long sword tears through the still forest air, slicing cleanly across the goblins chest and cleaving off a set of fingers from it’s outstretched shield hand. The goblin staggers, quickly gathers himself and re-engages with vigour.
OOC not that it really mattered, and I am sure he yelled something like bring it on or something like that but I can speak goblin. Just an FYI that I just remembered myself when checking my character sheet.
OOC: No worries I’ll keep that in mind for future encounters and put translations into spoilers similar to how the raven chat was handled. He basically called you “Bloated One” so your attack was pretty justified
[OOC: I may be unavailable rest of the afternoon, so my strategy for the encounter will be 1) Cure Wounds on any downed party member 2) Hit the archer goblins with Frostbite 3) Hit the melee goblins with Frostbite 4) if engaged, use my Quarterstaff
