"Oh my -- that escalated quickly!" Nobody exclaims before taking a swig from a mysterious flask. Some of what he drinks is spit misted above him, settling eventually into a faintly shimmering mist all about the tiefling. Much as he appeared at first eager to help, he stays true to an unspoken word in the driver's seat. So he stayed ready to for the most part to keep Betsy in check as others fight.
Action: Nobody Casts Spirit Viel at 1st level, gaining 8 Temp HP for one hour or until depletion.

Nobody sends Biscuit forward to help Leona and casts a spell on himself while he keeps control over Betsy.
But befor Biscuit can reach Leona ,you can hear a horribal howl of triumph as a second black arrow strikes Leonas guts just as she regained balance after the first hit. Leona takes 7 points of piercing damage. After a short moment you see a muscular Goblin with a longbow breaking out of the thicket and running north east into the forest, where he tries to hide. But everyone except Hazel can keep track of him.
Leona fights through the pain and she manages to raise her shield in front of her as she climbs the hill.
It was just in time, because two more goblins open fire on her, but the two arrows only hit her shield without causing damage. The two Goblins also run north east for the cover of the forrest, but they are unable to reach the tree-line ,
befor they are intercepted by Mal who was sprinting after them. He swings his staff. You hear a loud crack and one goblin falls to the ground motionless. The second goblin is fast enough to block Mals follow up attack with his shortbow, but you can hear the wood burst from the impact.
But the goblin is not fast enough to dodge the purple blue ball of energy that came from Hazels direction. First you see a purple flash of light and then you see a charred body collapsing.
Everyone gets theire hopes of an easy victory crushed as Leona is suddenly struck by two more arrows. The first one is deflected by her armor, but the second one strikes true just next to her spine and you watch in horror as her uncontious body tumbles down the hill towards the road, where she lies face down in the dirt.
You turn towards the origin of those two arrows just in time to see one goblin disapear south into the forest and the other one west.
Moss storms up the north hill and suddenly a flame appears in her hand as she reaches the top of the hill. She hauls ( 16) this ball of flame at the Goblin-leader. But instead of hitting the Goblin, she only hits the tree he used to hide behind. Frustrated she suddenly disappears into thin air.
Kai also tries to hit the Goblin leader with fire, but this time ,he doesn’t see the ball coming and is unable to dodge it (8). His left arm is engulfed in golden flames and he takes 5 points radiant damage.
Seeing the two Goblins that shoot Leona disappear, Ostran runs as far as he can south into the thicket to find them. (Perception 10) But is unable to detect them.
Kai frowns as everything happens quickly around her. She turns to the south hill and the direction of the arrows that shot Leona down before rushing over to Leona, shouting to the others. "More on the south hill. Kinda need some backup here. Nobody. Ostran. Assistance please. Whatever you can do. Hazel! Try to attack the ones on the other hill if you can." With a quick glance to check on Mal and Moss, Kai springs into action. Luckily, the vision Kai had gave her a slightly premade plan of action.
If Kai can make it to Leona with her 30 feet of movement (assuming Leona tumbled down the hill and back onto the path) she will pull the arrows out of Leona's body and cast Cure Wounds. The moisture on her hands seeps into Leona's wounds and glows, infusing arcane energy into the wounds to heal them. Once Leona is conscious, Kai will point to the direction of the arrows that downed her. "There are more over there. We don't know how many are around. Watch your back. I got your back if you need me. Just tell me how to help."
Heal points: 4
If Kai cannot reach Leona she will move as close to her as possible while still being in spell range before casting Sacred Flame at the unhidden goblin leader again.
Radiant Damage: 2
To the Dm:
Was the goblins total Dex roll 8? If so the flames would have hit him as Kai's save DC is 13 and they would have to get that or higher to avoid the damage.
Hazel starts charging up another Eldritch Blast, sending his attention towards the northern hill. Chanting under his breath in Deep Speech; “Khaor teague thy ne who stands kesha Le, servant nae tel’ -ianna ath tel’ nim.”
Hazel will cast Eldritch Blast at the first goblin he sees on the north hill, and if he can spot the goblin leader (and if the leader is within 30 feet of Hazel, who is not moving from his perch), he will use his bonus action to mark it with hexblades curse.
Shadows lick at Hazels feet and hands as the purple and blue lightning crackle between his fingers, struggling to be let free. Attack: 15 /damage: 9 force.
Noticing the trouble that has suddenly appeared Ostran jumps up into a ready position.
Hearing Kai, Ostran heads to the south hill to provide support after failing to locate anything in the thicket. He heaves his large crossbow to the ready position and charges forward. He will fire at any Gobs nearby.
Mal first hears the scraping of metal on metal followed by the shouting of Kai. The Goblin who fired the black arrow fled into the nearby forest and he lost track of him. Luckily, a few seconds later his form was illuminated by magical fire, presumably from on of the casters in the party. Mal ignored the smell of burning Goblin flesh which now permeated the area. The others will need to deal with whatever is happening below. He has much more present danger to address.
Hey Big Guy, do you have anything with a little more 'oomph' which you could throw at him - Mal yells at Moss but realizes that the Firbolg was no longer there.
What in the..... - Mal couldn't be distracted by the sudden disappearance of Moss. Focusing on the Goblin he just hoped that someone from the party joins him soon.
Mal rushes past the Goblin to cut off his escape deeper into the forest and attacks him with his quarterstaff.
Hey Ugly, you do know that you are literally on fire. - Mal tells the Goblin in Common.
OOC: Mal will try to do the following on his turn
1. Mal will intercept the Goblin.
2. He will attack the Goblin with his Quarterstaff and if needed an Unarmed Strike.
3. If he has any remaining movement, he will step back as far as he can to cut off any escape route of the Goblin. The benefit of the Mobile Feat will allow him to step back without provoking an Attack of Opportunity from the Goblin.
As leery as Nobody appeared to be on getting any close, seeing Leona fall spurs him to action. With great care he ushers Betsy along the cart/wagon is at least within 30ft of her. So that at least in an emergency, she can be pulled onto the cart while those already on can hop out to advance on any remaining goblins in hiding. Beyond this, he has Biscuit help him play spotter for any goblins in hiding, or have the little guy do so himself; calling out as necessary if they find any.
Perception: 20. (If moving the vehicle is an action, just take the 1st rolled number in the sequence as being the monkey doing the perceiving un-aided.)
This post has potentially manipulated dice roll results.
Nobody, you urge Betsy to pull the wagon closer to where Leona lies on the road. At the same time you look at Biscuit who is flying south and a bit east of your. He is nearly 50 feet away of yourself above the forest, when he lets out a shriek indicating that he found someone.
The Goblin leader angrily looks at Mal, before he grabs a hunting horn with his burned hand. Pain showing on his face as he lifts It to his mouth and a short loud blast sounds through the area. He turns around and runs away (move +dash) in a north-west direction. After 20 feet you lose him in the thicket (hide 22)
Leona coughs blood while she is fighting for her life.
Mal you run north east into the forest trying to cut off the goblin leader, but since you are searching for him ( perception 20) you can only move at normal speed. But you do catch a glimpse of him around 30 feet north of you.
Hazel you scan the area for more targets as Betsy draws you closer to were the action was but the thick forest prevents you from seeing a suitable target
You get a good idea where the goblin to the south is hideing, as he is shouting at Buscuit who circles in the air above him. The moment he he hears the hunting horn, he becomes silent and runs as far as he can (60 feet) south-east, befor he tries to hide again (10) but Buscuit never loses sight of him.
Moss suddenly materialisies 10 feet west of Kai and Leona and speaks some words in druidic causeing some of Leonas wounds to close and heal. Leona is back to 8 hp now.
Kai runs over to Leona, kneels down next to her wounded comrade and casts a healing spell on her. Leona is stable and awake now, but still lies prone on the ground.
Ostran heads south into the forest, trying to cut of another goblin and he gets lucky. Moments after the horn sounds, you see a goblin running south of you in a western direction. You don't hesitate and lose a bolt. The goblin collapses around 25 feet south west of you.
After Leona regains consciousness, Kai will look between her and Moss quickly. "Help Ostran and Biscuit. I'll help Mal." With that, Kai will nod to Nobody and Hazel before she moves to go up the north hill after Mal and the Goblin Leader. Kai will use her full movement (30 feet) to get to Mal and any leftover of her movement to head towards the goblin leader (assuming Mal points the direction), throwing another sacred flame at him quickly. The flame, this time an aqua green, bursts out of her fingertips and speeds quickly towards the goblin leader. Taking a que from Mal's shouting earlier, she will shout challengingly. "Coward! Think fast!"
Sacred flame Dex DC of 13. (This is her action as long as she is within 60 feet of the goblin leader).
-If Mal has already taken care of the leader (due to him acting before Kai) or if Kai is unable to get in 60 feet of the goblin leader, she will use her full movement and Kai will move to the top of the north hill (as close to Mal as possible) and look out for any other goblins in sight (excluding the obvious one thanks to Biscuit).
(Use this roll for the situation above if needed to locate the Goblin Leader)
As healing energy from her companions magic flows through her Leona’s eyes flutter open. A moment later she gasps aloud as she feels pain from the wounds in her gut and her back rush to the front of her senses, almost overwhelming her with the sudden flood of sensations. She quickly forces the pain to the back of her mind as she tries to concentrate on her surroundings.
Looking up she sees Moss looking in her direction from nearby as Kai kneels down over her before more healing magic flows through her from the Genasi’s hands. Despite the wounds mending the pain is still almost unbearable but she knows battle is still about her and so she grits her teeth and forces herself up. Lifting her shield up to cover herself, and aware of a wound in both her front and back, she is unsure which way to face and so she turns to face her two companions and gives them a nod of thanks before returning her focus to the fight. Not aware of the situation she quickly asks for an update as she glances towards both hills watching for any sign of goblins, her voice resuming the same authoritative tone as if nothing happen.
“What is the situation? How many are there? Where are they?”
Hazel grits his teeth and frowns down to his companions, “it doesn’t look like I’m going to be much help anymore, they’re hidden to well by the forest cover...” hopping down, Hazel runs up the north hill and into the forest looking to ketch up with Mal.
Hazel will move his full 25 feet movement up the north hill and attempt to spot/and attack the goblin Mal is chasing after, if he spots it, Hazel will use Eldritch Blast (240 ft range, ignore half and 3/4s cover) at the goblin.
eldritch Blast Attack: 12 /damage: 5 force.
If Hazel is still unable to spot the goblin after moving his full 25 ft move, he will use his action to dash instead, running till he can’t anymore or until he can see the goblin.
