D&D5e [PBF] FIRELIGHT - Vol. 1


#3246

The soft earth crumbles, and the beast slides back down.

It blasts a massive cloud of blinding smoke in frustration!

Torica is in the way…
d20: 18 +7 reflex…


#3247

She rolls backwards out of the cloud’s reach.

Hal’s turn!


#3248

(We did, in fact dig a second pit! 30 feet from this one?)


#3249

[Yeah, the plan was to put it between the mound and the house in the distance, so Hal and Torica could be heading towards some sort of shelter…]

Hal stays just beyond the second pit (about 20 ft, close enough to be seen by the gorgon, but far enough to stay safe).

He focuses, yells “hey, big guy!”, grabs an arrow, and fires.


#3250

Hal’s Attack roll:

d20: 18 + 7

If hit, piercing damage + Hunter’s Mark:

d8: 3 + 3 + d6: 4


#3251

(The beast is down in the pit, so it’s a bit of a trick shot right now - disadvantage roll:)

d20: 13 +7


#3252

Hit!


#3253

The arrow curves down into the pit, striking the beast on the forehead.

It isn’t dazed anymore, just angry.

2d20: 18 + 17 = 35 +5


#3254

It’s powerful forelegs push it up and out of the pit.

Torica is surprised by its reaction, and books it back around to where Hal is.

The gorgon then goes again, and charges forward!

d20: 1


#3255

It completely falls into the second trap! Rolling almost humorously on its back with a massive crash!


#3256

epic%20fall


#3257

(this is supposed to be a scary monster, lol)

Hal’s turn!


#3258

[pratfalls aside…trying to ping this thing with arrows when it can decimate Hal with one swipe is plenty scary! Thanks goodness we dug these pits…]

Hal grits his teeth. He tries to assess just how close this thing is to finally falling.

“Torica, that’s our last fail-safe–I think we need to start offing it out of here, track the thing down as it’s wounded–if we can even get away. Can you run? Let’s head back to the house, taking turns to ping this thing if we can…”

Hal takes aim for the gorgon’s steaming face, fires, and runs back 30 ft toward the hut.


#3259

Hal’s Attack roll:

d20: 17 + 7

if hit, piercing damage + Hunter’s Mark:

d8: 4 + 3 + d6: 1


#3260

[survival roll to determine beast health?]


#3261

Hal’s Survival check to see how wounded the beast is:

d20: 11 + 3


#3262

Hal’s pretty sure the beast is on its last legs, and that it’s incredibly enraged.


#3263

Torica stands fast, and throws her last javelin.
“This beast will run straight through that stack of twigs. I’ll distract it, you keep hitting it from afar.”

d20: 1 +8
2d8: 8 + 5 = 13 +4


#3264

Torica slips again, ending up face first in the mud.

She groans in frustration.

The beast attempts to right itself and get out of pit 2:

d20: 5 +5


#3265

It gets rolled around, but can’t manage to get out of the pit.

Hal!
