Nemeia holds her crossbow at the ready. She points it at the darkness in front of 9 and will attempt to shoot anything that moves toward her threatening. She makes sure to keep quite the distance between herself and those getting closer to the cave, preferring to let them scout the darkness.
Witt stays where he is, and will continue to ready an attack with his shortbow, to be triggered as soon as he sees something hostile. Not just when a goblin comes out of the cave, but when it's clear that they have hostile intent towards the party. He mutters a silent prayer to Oryn that a peaceful solution can be found.
Nemeia will do her best to stay a far enough distance away to see the goblins but attempt to not draw their attention. She places her finger on the trigger and holds until she sees aggression toward 9. She doesn't want to have to hurt someone if she doesn't have to. Her heart races a 9 approaches.
Move within range trying to stay 60 feet away from the goblins if possible and will ready the attack action if the goblins seem hostile toward 9.
Uncertain if it’s the right thing to do Moira shrugs peers around the tree flourishing her wand toward the cave. "Snelis ogami"Suddenly the image of a huge snake squeezing into the cave fills the entrance. Moira stays where she is at peeking around the tree to maintain visual on her illusion.
The the massive illusionary snake fills the cavern entrance, two goblins from deeper inside the mine unleash their arrows that they had ready. The arrows fly through the false snake image uselessly. The attack still revealed their position however, and those with line of sight are able to make out their position as a result.
Mary - You witness as several of the goblins you had spotted, holding their attack for any who got close enough, were startled suddenly by the appearance of the snake. In addition to the two with bows that decided to attack right away there were four more that you saw hiding in the shadows, you suspect the rest were also holding their attacks in much the same way but they don't seem equipped with any sort of bows and so didn't make any ranged attack. You also still see the trap ahead of you that has not yet been disabled.
Nemeia - you can attack the goblins that you can see with your held action now that their position is known to you.
Mary & 9 - You both go at the same time and it's now your turn.
Mary notes the number and location of all the goblins, and using stealth heads back to where others should have waited. To give the layout of the entrance, the number of goblins, and who is melee, ranged, and caster ect. She also notes the sharp incline and basic dangers of rushing in.
((Not sure if I need to roll anything new to do this. She will however use max speed to get back out to the group.))
Nemeia's and 9's shots both go wide and miss the goblins entirely. While Mary moves back to inform others of what she saw, you all begin to hear shouting and movement from within the cavern, it sounds like more goblins are joining the fight but they're staying out of sight deep in the mine right now. Mary you move past 9 as she walked forward to attack, and Sora who's preparing to attack
9 - In order to get to a position where you can fire at the goblin you won't have enough movement to get back to the same tree, however you can get behind full cover by moving to the side of the mine entrance.
Seeing that there's no way to reach, much less attack, and of the goblins up ahead just yet, Soramoves up and over to the opposite side of the cave. Making sure she is out of line of sight, she gets ready to attack anything that comes close to her.
As she waits you see her flexing her fingers against the grip of her swords, getting more and more anxious for a fight.
Once outside Mary goes to the group, and maps out where the goblins are and the number of ranged and melee goblins.
(( Looks to DM for the specifics. Will use "X" and "Y" for numbers she saw but the DM didn't says.)) Also I guess additional perception roll for accuracy. of numbers))
"It was dark in the cave, and the goblins where waiting hidden inside ready for war. There is (X) ready with ranged weapons, and (Y) ready with melee weapons. What we need now is a nice big ol' Smoke bomb to dislodge them from their position." She tells the group.
At this point everyone begins to hear an increasing raucous of goblin screams and movements. Those who can see deeper into the mine will watch as a larger group of goblins begins moving forward down the main mineshaft. At the front of the pack are more armored goblins carrying shields along with their clubs and short swords, while towards the back of the group are the same archers from before. They stop a little over five feet away from where the snake illusion currently stands, a couple of them apparently taunting or swearing at the illusion. They don't attack, however, instead the two archers at the back take shots through the snake targeting the only other viable target they can. And so two arrows fly towardsNemeia.
Bow Attack: 19 Damage: 7
Bow Attack: 22 Damage: 3
Both Arrows manage to find their target, and Nemeiatakes 10 damage.
