Zeng has quietly been following the group, their appearance that of a duergar woman wearing some simple clothing covered by leather armor that has strange straps adorning it to adjust it’s size. They prepare themselves at K0 as they hold their longbow in their hands to shoot when the creatures get within 150ft.
Con save 8
Feeling as if they’re choking, Zeng still gets two shots off at the fish woman with their bow.
Botting Gedyr for this round, he casts Haste on Bazhak.
The smaller fishman is not well armored at all, but happens to be very nimble, so he manages to dodge one of Bala's attacks, but is struck by the other, taking 6 damage.
Both of the meteors that Ferdinand has thrown impact upon the fishlady's body with a huge "thud", leaving marks and an annoyed enemy, dealing her 18 damage.
Bazhak's strikes are somewhat effective against the larger fishman, who is able to defend himself against one, parrying the blow with his trident, but cannot do the same again, as the Half-Orc's attack hits him in the side, dealing 9 damage.
Zeng is unable to resist the fishlady's spell and is dealt 7 damage. On the other hand, he is able to let loose two arrows, with one flying just behind the fishlady, but the other one is on target, hitting her in the shoulder, dealing 7 damage (25 in total for the round).
Dihek'nir is very brave to run up to the smaller fishman and attacks vigorously, but falls short, with his blows easily being dodged by the quick enemy.
Once the party exhausts their attacks, the enemies try to, once again, get through the melee warriors so that they can get to the squishier ranged members of the party.
The bigger fishman strikes Bazhak once again, but, this time, instead of two strikes, he grips his huge trident and attempts one giant blow.
Attack - 20
Damage - 16
The smaller fishman is up to his tricks again, making a feint and trying to land a blow against each of Bala's feet.
Attack 1: 27, damage - 12
Attack 2: 11, damage - 6
The fishlady seems to be the most hurt from the group, though is still far from dying. She moves her hands around and, suddenly, Dihek'nir finds a large boulder above his head, falling onto him and dealing 4d6 damage. He can make either a STR or DEX save, whichever he prefers, with a DC of 17, so that he will be able to halve the damage taken.
Ferdinand will hurl two additional meteors at the fish lady at p4 to also hurt the larger fish man for 8 and 8 fire damage or half if they succed ob a dc14 dex save, and will also cast magic missile at second level, with all blasts targeting the fish-lady for 12 force damage.
Zeng will cast hunter’s mark on the fish lady as a bonus action before attacking twice more with their bow. Blowing their long hair out of the way they say, ”I should change that soon,” and shoot at the woman twice.
Attack 1: 16 Damage: 14
Attack 2: 20 Damage: 14
Then Zeng will duck behind the cover of the rock and stand at i0.
Dihek'nir fails his save and is hit by the falling boulder, being dealt 10 bludgeoning damage. However, the pain only serves to reinvigorate him, as he disappears from where the boulder just struck and appears behind an unsuspecting fishlady, striking her in the back, drawing a lot of blood and dealing 10 damage.
Bala's attacks are somewhat successful, taking advantage of the fishman's relatively larger frame. The Tabaxi is considerably more agile and while the fishman manages to block one strike, the other nicks his side, dealing 4 damage.
Ferdinand's attacks against the fishlady are very successful, with both his meteors impacting upon her chest, leaving her heaving and struggling for breath. However, when attempting to recuperate, she is also hit by a magic missile, which, taking advantage of her extremely weakened state, drains the life from her. Knowing that she's dying, she mutters one final curse and succumbs to her injuries.
Bazhak's strikes against larger fishman take full advantage of the Half-Orc's combat experience. Having seen the larger fishman move, he anticipates every action that the enemy would undertake in the next few seconds, so he manages to land three strikes out of three. Bazhak's knowledgeable eyes see, that he has done exactly enough to kill the enemy, before the fishman is even able to understand it himself. The giant body crumples to the ground without the realization of his own death manages to pierce his mind.
Zeng targeted the fishlady, but, seeing her body collapse, realizes that such an action would be futile, so, at the very last second, redirects his aim at the smaller fishman, who is wholly unprepared for the barrage that is to follow. Both of Zeng's arrows impact upon torso, with dark blue blood oozing from the wounds.
Gedyr, running towards the smaller fishman, attacks him and manages to get as close as possible. His final strike, with the dagger, is made so into the enemy's throat. Gedyr watches, as life drains from the fishman's eyes and his soul leaves the body.
With all three enemies dealt with, the party has a chance to look through their belongings. The weapons they had attacked with are too cumbersome and unwieldy, not to mention crude, for even Bazhak to use. However, the remains of the fishlady are more useful. On her waist she carried a dagger, which can easily be identified to have magical properties. It looks as follows and has the following properties.
Finally, she also has a small pouch, which contains 15 coins, 5 of them gold, 5 - silver and 5 - bronze. All of them have a face of a human on one side and a picture of a castle on the other. The castle is the same on all three coins, while the people are different. The person on the golden coin conveys wisdom and experience, being of an elderly man with a bushy beard. The person on the silver coin shows strength and martial prowess, being of a younger man with a large scar on his brow and a goatee. The person on the bronze coin seems to show warmth and compassion, being of an older man with a short beard.
The party has brief time to go through the bodies and divide the loot, as well as to converse among themselves, before they notice a vessel in the water, coming towards them. The ship is roughly the size of the Void skipper, with at least a dozen humans visible on them
Before the party has a chance to react, the ship closes in. Someone casts a spell, which can be assumed to be water walking, and a person jumps overboard, landing on water and walking across it towards the party. He is a man of roughly thirty years old, with a short but bushy hear, shaved face, and clothing that is unmistakably military in nature. He also has a sword in his hand.
He looks like this (sans the bloodied face, of course):
When he approaches you, he semi-shouts, not in anger, but more in chastisement:
"What kind of a moron decides to just stroll across the Sahuagin Coast? You were lucky only three of them showed up, there could be thirty, or even three hundred! I mean, the thing is called the Sahuagin Coast, for Light's sake!"
Then, he looks over you, and asks, incredulously:
"A human, I understand. A half Orc, well, you are rare, but can be seen everywhere. Catman and Elf are far from their natural habitat, but I'll still buy it... But what the hell are you two? A dwarf that lived his entire life in a coal mine and an elf who someone left in the sun for a dozen years? Is the circus in town? Who are you people? Oh... and are you from that ship that just crashed up north?"
Right after combat ended, ferdinand wrote „beware of the waters, the beasts are hungry“ in his notebook, rips the page out. He snapps his fingers and a seagull apears on his shoulder. He gives him the paper and says: „would you bring that to our captain, Herring“
after the human appears
„Well good day sir! Ferdinands the name.“ he walks up to him to shake hads, assuming he is on the beach already. „We all are indeed new to this place, stranded up shore in this direction“ points in the direction od the void skipper.
