Seeing the others begin to reach their vantage points, Flint sets a brisk walking pace for the center of the gate.
With Jorji and Seviari protected in their watchtowers, the others meet inside the gate. To the immediate left you see the temple, its slender tower reaching high into the night sky, its bell still ringing loudly. This close, you can make out stained glass set in the wooden walls, depicting images of birth, the dawning sun, trees, and unicorns. The front door to the temple is wide open and a warm light comes from further within.
Solace is eyeing the town center with a fair amount of scrutiny. It's too far away to see in the dark, even for those with dark vision, and that damned bell is ringing too loudly to hear anything useful.
// At this point, it might good for you guys to appoint a leader, someone that you are following, so that each of you aren't waiting for someone else to make a move and thus stalling the narrative ;) //
// One more thing, I meant to post this earlier... //
As your enter Nightstone under the cover of darkness, you notice several large rocks embedded in the ground in your vicinity at random intervals, about 3 feet in diameter and weighing easily 500 pounds each. Those of you that have been to Nightstone recognize these as new features.
// I missed so much, mornings will be hard for me to post. during that time Rip is ferociously writing in him master tomb //
"..so I can see what im shooting... done. Alright Flint, ready to.. Flint?" Rip takes a second to find the dwarf he'd been absent mindedly following as the distraction felt more heroic and applicable for a bard "Alright Flint, ready to make some noise? Also, where did these big rocks come from? Odd choice for exterior decor."
//Uh pump the brakes please! BriceJTodd/Serviari cut it with the 'sweet cheeks' comments in future and show me as well as my character some respect. I got ZERO tolerance for that shite IRL or online. Secondly Solace does have dark vision as does Flint and Jorji so as soon as the wolves, I am assuming is what was scurrying, from Solace's forward vantage would have seen then once they would have gotten within 60ft! She would have been able to make out the 'shapes' as well as seen the moment WAY before they were able to attack and raise some sort of alarm for the party. Now however I am just plain confused about all these movements and placement of PCs. Who's on the ground behind Solace at the palisade, who's in the tower, and the rocks at what distance from the palisade/bridge. Also if we were going to be able to roll stealth to move forward you did not wait for anyone to do it on the ground?!//
For reference, the rocks scattered around the map are 3' in diameter. The distance from the gate to the town centered is roughly 100 feet. The temple is 40' long.
For our first encounter, let's try this: Please describe where you are, relative to the wolves, within 80-100 feet to the west of them (so between the town center and the gate). Precise positioning between yourselves shouldn't be necessary. Describe also what you'll do as your action this round, rolling dice as appropriate [including damage dice]. Anything checks involving attacking or hiding from the wolves has Advantage. Your action will take effect during your turn).
