Red Hand Of Doom - Part One: The Witchwood

Greetings. Welcome to the first session of /mlpol/'s first running of the classic third edition d&d campaign Red Hand Of Doom.
On this adventure, our heroes, currently three strong, will encounter dozens of trials that will test their strength, cunning, and friendship as they face an army of goblins.

If you'd like to join, there's still room for more in the party. Don't be shy to ask.

Our story begins in Elsir Vale, with our three heroes on the road to the town of Drellin’s Ferry. The three are seasoned adventurers, and exated heroes to boot. Having fought many battles together before, they are confident in their strength. Legend has it of a vast treasure in the Vault of Vraath Keep, hidden deep in the Witchwood; our heroes, have journeyed all this way to seize the vault for their own.
Despite that, they all have their own motivations to travel to Drellin's Ferry:
Sir Whiskers, a cunning and charismatic Tibbet Jester, is travelling to meet up with an old friend of his: Princess Princess Bagel Jennifurr Fluffykinz the fourth. He hasn't met his old friend since he was a kitten, and he's eager to meet with her again. She has arranged to meet up with him in Drellin's Ferry, and to accompany him on his adventure.
Sir Brozal, a mighty Orc Crusader of Pelor, has received a mission from a high-ranking Cleric of his order has received a powerful vision of war descending on Elsir Vale under the banner of a clawed red hand, and has sent Brolaz to the far reaches of Elsir Vale to avert impending disaster... Brozal isn't exactly sure if the vision was real, or if his master just wanted to get rid of him for the year, but he never turns down a good crusade.
Brother Chad, a wise and powerful Druid, has chosen to accompany his companions on their hunt for the lost treasure in the Witchwood. Sir Whiskers requested his aid because Chad is the most experienced woodsman he knows. Chad is wary of this region, for he's heard that it is ruled by a fierce and territorial Druid, but he embarks upon this jouney nonetheless, the secrets of the Witchwood too tempting to ignore.
...So tempting that he seems to have drifted off somewhere with his horse; probably fucking it again or something. Stupid hippie.

And so, let's begin:
>The afternoon sun beats down on you; the air is hot and still. The sparsely settled lands of Elsir Vale are starting to grow monotonous, with a seemingly endless line of dusty flyspecks of towns. The town of Drellin’s Ferry lies a few miles ahead of you. It’s a settlement hard on the borders of the Witchwood, and the best place from which to begin exploring the nearby forest.
This is the part where the players ask obvious questions that I thoughtlessly ignored in the first post, as well as implore about their surroundings.

Fuck it. No point in stalling. I'll just improvise.

Brozal boldly walks past the gatehouse and into the keep, while everyone else waits outside.

This courtyard of hard-packed earth has an eerie air of desolation. Jagged boulders embedded in the ground seem to have been dropped here, or thrown from a great distance; many of the walls bear large dents and cracks where these boulders might have once struck. Two massive skeletons lie at opposite ends of the courtyard, one propped up by the watchtower and the other sprawled at the far end by a building that could be a stable. To the south, where a section of the keep’s outer wall has collapsed, a third giant skeleton lies partially buried in the rubble.

Oh yeah, and it seems to be occupied.
"Gobbo gobbo gobbo gobbo!"
Four hobgoblins Shoot you from both sides with longbows, all connecting, dealing a total of 36 damage.

Meanwhile, two arrows fly out of the darkness from the woods and hit Chad, dealing 7 damage.

I need everyone to roll initiative.

You can only attack once after moving though.
Your first attack roll was a crit, but you failed to confirm it.
The seasoned hobgoblin is wounded, but doesn't drop.
“We are the Red Hand! We do not know defeat!” He roars

Jorr shoots into the forest, yelping sounds resound from where he shot (some 200 ft away).

Okay, the dumbass goblins seem to thing it's clever to push you guys you guys in the keep instead of shooting you at a range. They charge upward with lances.

Whiskers Greases the road as the worgs charge. One succeeds heroically on it's balance check and charges through, while the other skits across the road like a pet dog on hardwood.
Bagel immediately follows up with her low-power Burning Hands, which in this one circumstance combines with the Grease spell to make a greasefire. They all fail their saves and take 7 damage, while the goblin and worg who fell over are set on fire taking one additional damage.

One worg leaps right through the flames and charges towards Whiskers, frothing at the mouth as it attacks. It's rider steering it expertly with the mounted combat feat and....

Bites right into him! The Goblin's +4 racial bonus to Ride checks allowed it to bat away all three of Jorr's jogs who had moved to intercept the beast.

Whiskers take 10 bludgeoning/piercing damage as the Worg bites into him, and needs to roll an opposed check to see if he's tripped.

The Goblin and it's rider are still on fire. It's comrade prone, but still alive beside it on the greasefire.

The goblin screams in pain as it spends it's round trying to put out the fire.

The two hobgoblins on the other side of the wall of smoke can be heard clambering around the broken wall to the north, evidently intelligent and cowardly enough to recognize that crossing the wall is a bad idea.

One Hobgoblin shoots towards Brozal and misses.

That being said, Brozal will charge over, jump into the air dramatically, and plunge his flaming trident through the skull of the downed goblin. He then tears off the head and waves it around in the air for the other goblins to see.

Okay, after some confusion, you redirect your attack towards the guy who wasn't behind the wall.
He takes the damage, and coughs blood.
He responds by drawing his katana and slashing you, but it misses. It then takes a 5 foot step back and moves 20 feet east.
The other two goblinoids have by-now clambered over the crumbling wall to avoid Chad's wall of smoke. From their elevated position, they fire black rays towards you. Only one hits.
The other Goblin who took the potion earlier has travelled back across the hallway to shoot you in the back with his own ray.

As the rays hit you, you take 9 strength damage, the spells sapping your strength.

The remaining worg attacks Jorr's dog again, tearing into the prone canine.
Jorr's dog yelps out in pain before going silent.
Jorr REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEs a mighty REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE As he stabs into the beast with his dagger, and follows up with a punch to the monster's head. The worg collapses.

The last worg is able to stand, but in that moment succumbs to the flames.

But, i guess it's good enough for him to consider healing himself instead of killing you.

The seasoned goblinoid looks at the Orc with a sadistic grin.
"You'll speak with the master, but not standing!" He growls, uncapping and taking yet another potion.

The other wounded hobgoblin takes his own potion. The two Veterans on the walls fire more rays, one of them hitting.
Brozal takes another 2 strength damage, putting his score at 7.

Two hobgoblin warriors a wall 40 feet away, zapping Brozal. One on the worthwest corner who just took a potion. The voice of a hobgoblin out of sight yelling something at Brozal. A wall of smoke blocking off half the room. Chad some 20 feet in front of you conjuring lightning. Bagel Beside you. Jorr near kneeling over his dying dog. Two dead goblins and two dead worgs behind you.

Behind you, to the south, is the gatehouse. In front of you leads further into the courtyard. There are rooms around the courtyard, and stairs to your left (being blocked off by a hobgoblin).

And darn it, I have to step out again for 30 mins... Sorry.
