After we traveled through the passage that opened up at the end of the last encounter, we saw a cliff, a mountain, several trees and bushes. We were approaching from the east, headed west, and the path continued toward the west on the other side of these natural features.
We encountered two humans wearing scale armor and each carrying both a longsword in one hand and a spear in the other. One said, “I have heard about you tresspassers. I sent my cube to stop you, although you proved stronger than I expected. Get off my property!”
Adoendithas Minshadow told the man that we were here to save hm from the orc scourge, but he said, “I sent those orcs myself…. attack!”
So, Richand Huntinghawk unleashed a Witch Bolt attack on the human, with a critical hit, doing 12 damage, and advanced on the human. Adoamros Milltall missed with a crossbow shot. The human attacks Richand Huntinghawk with Ray of Frost but misses. Frukul Strifelaugher hits with a shortbow arrow, doing 8 damage. Adoendithas Mineshadow advanced on the human and struck with his warhammer, doing 7 bludgeoning damage. Another human emerged from behind a tree in the distance and advanced on us. He threw his spear at Adoendithas Mineshadow, with a critical hit, doing 8 damage and taking Adoendithas down to 5 HP.
In the second round, Richand Huntinghawk does another 10 damage to the first human with Witch Bolt, killing him, then ran far from the second human. Adoamros Milltall shot a crossbow bolt at the second human, missing. Frukul Strifelaugher shot a shortbow arrow at the second human, missing. Adoendithas Mineshadow advanced on the second human and struck with his warhammer, hitting and doing 9 damage. The human uses multi attack to make two attacks on Adoendithas Mineshadow, missing with his longsword on the first one but scoring a critical hit on the second one and doing 10 damage, taking him down to -5 hit points and knocking him unconscious. The human (a knight as it turns out) shouts “That’s what will happen to the rest of you if you don’t scram!”
In the third round, Richand Huntinghawk screams “We do not scram!” He then fires magic missile at the knight, doing a total of 10 damage and taking the knight down to 14 HP. Adoamros Milltall uses Healing Word on Adoendithas Mineshadow, restoring him to 3 HP. Frukul Strifelaugher shot a shortbow arrow at the knight, hitting and doing 4 damage, taking the knight down to 10 HP. Adoendithas Mineshadow, angered at having been knocked unconscious, struck the knight again with his warhammer, hitting and doing 6 damage. He said, “Take that!” The knight said, “I may not be able to end you all, but I sure will end you, Mineshadow!” The knight attempts Ray of Frost on Adoendithas Mineshadow, hitting and doing 8 damage, knocking him unconscious again . Then the knight retreats 30 feet to hide behind his tree.
In the fourth round, Richand Huntinghawk shouts “You will not end any of us, you worthless scum!” He then hurls a poison orb at the knight, missing. Adoamros Milltall advances toward Adoendithas Mineshadow, coming up 10 feet short, then fires a crossbow bolt at the knight, who has three-quarters cover behind the tree trunk, missing.
In the fifth round, Richand Huntinghawk uses Fire Bolt, hitting the knight and doing 10 damage, killing him. Adoamros Milltall steps forward and uses Healing Word on Adoendithas Mineshadow, reviving him.
We split 400 XP for the encounter. We also found a belt pouch on the first knight containing 8 GP, which we split evenly.
