Situation: The company is engaged in combat on the banks of the Gwathlo.

Situational Modifiers:
• none

Physical Modifiers:
• the terrain is very muddy and slippery, a PC may suffer falling prone from an extraordinary strike or a disastrous failure
• dark areas on the map will limit movement to 1/2; moving through more than 3 squares will require a STR test TN 12 or become stuck until the next round and a successful test; Disastrous failure means the bog is dragging the PC down and will take them in 2d6 rounds
• the terrain does not effect Witherfinger or the Wood Blights

Initiative:
Celdrahil (+6) - 13
Dirnhael (+5) - 12
Nain (+2) - 10
Blights (+2) - 10
Durgil (+2) - 9
Fengel (+3) - 8
Edrahil (+2) - 7




The three large, hulking shapes advanced on the company even as they stood with mouths agape.

:ooc: Alright - Celdrahil just needs advanced, but there is no reason we can't get this scene rolling. You guys with the initiative can start. A map is attached. You may want to re-read the physical modifiers as I have updated them.

Nain watched as the huge trees walked toward them.  After a moment he glanced down at his ax and it occurred to him that they might think that he'd been the one that chopped down their friends.  He quickly moved it behind his back.

"Celdrahil, Do ye suppose ye might convince our new friend to have a chat with these three and convince them that we're friends?"

The Sindarin Elf was as confused as the Dwarf, "My dear, Nain, I do not believe these are allies or even friends of the She-Ent, Witherfinger! I fear these are terrible spirits either from Eregion's past, or some sent to deter any from approaching these fens. I believe your axe is very much at need here!"

To the surprise of all, Witherfinger turned from the oncoming foes and began to stride away - her long gait separating her quickly from where they all stood. "TOOOOOM TUMMM TI DOOOM! The end of days. Blighted wood. Blighted days. No more to live and grow."

 :ooc: Just to make sure I'm clear on this, our Ent friend just left us here to fight these three on our own?

Hearing the Elf's words Nain swings his axe around in front him and walks forward toward them.  Fear hovering just behind his heart as visions of dead brother's bravery standing against the shadows so long ago danced at the corner of his eye. 

"Alright ye big bugger's, come meet me axe"

 :ooc: Nain moves forward as far as he can walk.  I believe that if he moved straight forward he should still be out of the muck at least for the most part.

 Durgil repeats his challenge, "The darkness you bring is not wanted here -- leave this place!"

"The breath and will of Elbereth is with us on this strange and dark day. These are no friends of the free folk before us and as we say in the south, 'when wisdom fails, swords prevail!'"

The knight held his sword high and advanced.

 :ooc: I will move forward and attack one on the edge. not sure how far I can move or if I can move and still attack.
THE GAME MUST GO ON!

:ooc:  Hey Tom, I refer you to page 214 of the Core Rulebook - you are allowed to make any of the following movements at the cost of 1 action:

Crawl/Step 2 yards; Walk 6 yards; or Jog 12 yards - above these we get into a Full-round action to sprint. On the map, each square is 1 yard. Because the dark areas reduce movement by 1/2, they count for 1.5 of your allowed movement - and/or you might get stuck.

Your PC has three actions in a round before he starts to take negative mods - all of which may be combat actions.

Matt, I will test for your affects after I roll the Blights attacks.

:ooc: Going to give Shawn one more night on this thread to see if he can post, or if real life hasn't removed interest in playing. If he is no longer interested, which will end a very long run of gaming, then we all will dicuss the future of this game. It will be the end of an era.

I will let you all know tomorrow.

The blighted trees moved forward and an eerie cry seemed to echo from some past, as if a rustle through the boughs of a forest. The lead blight lifted one of its great legs, which was the girth of a small tree itself, and slammed it onto the ground. The tremor shook the ground and caused the swampy earth to erupt up around the companions. The other two evil ents raced forward to engage the men and dwarf.



:ooc:  I went ahead and advanced Dirnhael to the attack, too. I am going to RP him until I see if Shawn is back with us.
