Smells the ground

Smells will test out how sensitive his goblin powers are, using his esp, "Pretty sure were looking for a bugbear, if ya meet up with me I can show you a picture."

SPOILERS:Eh, whats up with smells and that picture kinda obsessed isn't he?


"Ooo berries" Smells will grab a blue berry and give it a quick sniff to see if it's poisonous, After which he starts to collect them. After Collecting some berries smells starts searching around for some clues to were the bugbear went.

Thinking to himself, eh maybe he left a footprint on the road? bugbears are bigger than goblins? Once lamp catches up, "oo Licks want to search for a big smelly bugbear?" Smells will then try to get licks to help search for signs of the bugbear.

If smells finds any trace of the bugbear he'll follow the direction he believes he went. If he doesn't find anything he'll continue following the road(trying to stay a bit ahead for you guys can move around more freely).

SPOILERS:"minor and major action each turn as well as a move" Could you give a couple examples of a minor action. For example is collecting something a major or minor?

SPOILERS:Alright lets hope this isn't too much of a mess. Assuming collecting is a minor action I'll do exactly what the post says. If Collecting and searching are impossible to combine I'll just Collect some berries and move.

"OH!" Dies will sneak ahead a little bit to keep a look out for anything dangerous or the bugbear. If he finds something he will turn to alert the others before they get noticed.

OK, apologies I should have clarified earlier, but now you're out of the city you can move up, down, left and right out of each area (in this instance, the village is up (north), and the road continues down (south) but you can go 'off-road' to the east or west). You might also want to keep a map of which area leads where in each direction as it might not always be 100% clear (just a heads up!). Licentious - can you please clarify which direction you want to scout ahead to?

Also as far as I'm concerned at the moment, Smells is the only Goblin who has left the city. All the rest of you need to move to catch up, but can use a major action to move into a new area, or investigate the area Smells is currently in.

A minor action is exactly like picking berries, or any other small action, such as trading items between you (like the wand). If you want to thoroughly strip the bush of all berries, that would be a major action, but grabbing a handful is a minor. You can also only use items that you are holding.

Goblins Summaries:

DiesinWater (Shadow):
HP: 3/5, Att: 2, Def: 1(+25% critical chance; +10% chance to sneak successfully)
Inventory: Wand of Healing, Twin Daggers

Inventory: Longsword, Light Armour, Bag of Dog Biscuits

SmellstheGround (Scout):
HP: 5/5, Att: 3, Def: 2 (25% chance to miss target; ranged)
Inventory: Light Armour, Bow & Arrows, Teller's Drawing

WearsaCoat (Tank):
HP: 5/5, Att: 3, Def: 3
Inventory: Longsword, Heavy Armour, 4x minor healing potions, 1x strength potion, 2x stoneskin potions.

LicksFaces (Warg Puppy):
HP: 6/6, Att: 2, Def: 2

Hope this is a bit of help - give me a yell if you spot anything odd :)

Dies will catch up with Smells and give him the wand after healing himself a point. "I think you would be best to keep this, seeing as you will want to stay out of melee range in fights anyway."

Alrighty then, woo!! wand of power :D. I shall use it with great responsibility and promise not to use it to poke unusably objects with it, no promises on not using it as a back scratchier though.

I know it's not really necessary right now, but crude map incoming.

Giving the item is a minor action, you can receive items for free - doesn't seem much point in taking two actions over :)
Also, nice map!

Turn 11

While waiting for the others to catch up, Smells takes the opportunity to grab a handful of blue berries [Receive: 5 blue berries]from the bush and search the area. His search is successful, and he finds a clump of fur caught in the red berry bush. Unfortunately, it's been stained by berry juice and is bright red, so it's not clear what kind of animal left it behind or where it might have gone. The others catch up shortly after, and ImaLamp heads straight for the red berry bush, grabbing a handful of berries [Receive: 6 red berries], while Dies heals himself to 4/5 HP and hands the Wand of Healing to Smells. Licks pads along behind and starts investigating her feet.

Image

Smells thanks Dies for the wand and follows the road south. The road takes him gradually downhill through the foothills of the mountains and eventually ends in a rocky scrubland. If you want to go any further from here you'll be travelling through the wilds.

Image

SPOILERS:Ok, so it's getting interesting now! So's you're aware, the mechanisms determining your success / failures and your monster encounters are based on die rolls, so we'll see how that goes :) Since this is a trial game, if there are any points you would like to raise at any point regarding the game mechanics please feel free - getting your feedback as we go would be really good :)

Smells the ground

Smells Having gone to the end of the road returns back to his group to see what they will do next. While there he heals Lamp, practicing with the wand. He had never held such a valuable object before. After a bit he notices Licks playing around and goes to examine what she's found.
If licks has found a trail of some kind I'll start(or not because I can't move into a new area) heading in that direction. If it's nothing then I'll move down to the area I just left.

SPOILERS:Major action to heal Lamp, a move action to move back to the group, Minor to check on Licks, and scout moving back to my previous location if it's nothing or that's were the trail is leading.

SPOILERS:Woops, healed the wrong person, Lamp is hurt not Coat o:

wooo weekend updates.

Crude map update.

Haha, It's a goblin train. Sadly it's following me and I'm not moving anywhere this turn :<. Well sorta, I went back to see if licks found anything. If lamp takes care of her actions and managing her, I'll be able to continue onwards. She's has actions as well as us, we should try to maximize productivity.

Turn 12

The goblins went marching 3 by 3 down the hill!
Lamp follows Coats who follows Dies who is humming a happy marching tune down to the end of the road, passing Smells on the way back up the hill.

Image

Coats is at full health and doesn't need healing, so he continues south through the wilderness. He will arrive there next turn (action taken in Turn 11; arrives Turn 13).

Smells meanwhile returns to the bushes to see if Licks had found anything last turn. Left entirely to her own devices, it seems she has been busy and proudly brings Smells a very beautiful stick to play with. She then bounds off after Lamp for a pat.

Image

SPOILERS:So far, Licks hasn't done anything too destructive on her own, but her actions are random if you guys don't give her commands. Anyone can command her who's in the same area. If you split up, you need to state whos' taking her along, and if there's a discrepancy I'll go with the popular vote or random.org will decide :)

*Takes a breath* lets see if I can do this in one post without editing. Nope couldn't do it.
Smells the ground

"good girl, licks, you found a stick". Smells will try to get licks to follow the scent on the fur, if she believes the target is the bush he'll try to get her to search somewhere else. He'll keep a eye on her while he starts collecting some berries (blue). After that's all done Smells will move to the rest of the group and heal Dies up to full.

If Licks found a trail he'll move to the square that's contains the trail.
If he makes no progress on the trail. He'll continue with the group.


Smells will Collect some more blue berries. After he's done he'll move to catch up wit the rest of the group. Once he's there he'll Heal Dies up to full. Seeing that licks isn't really doing much he'll try to get licks to follow the scent on the fur.
SPOILERS:Licks Major action to search

Smells will use a Minor action to grab some berries, use a move action to catch up with the rest of the group, use a Major action to heal Dies, then use his scout move to follow group.

No, a move is a move and won't affect the rest of the turn, EXCEPT when moving into a previously unexplored area (automatically ends turn) or if you're decide to use a major action to move twice in one turn.
