However, before she could continue, a small green creature jumped down in front of them, holding what looked like a spear and a shield. Its large head and even larger ears gave away that this was a goblin. Another goblin landed next to him holding a knife, and another five jumping down around the group. Some wielding bows.
"Hah! You were right, Mik, that leaving fake tracks thing actually worked." The one with the knife in front said with a quick chuckle. The one with the spear stepped forward, keeping his pose straight.
"Howdy folks," He said in a smooth voice, "I'm sure you're having a lovely time and all, but I regret to inform you you're being mugged."
"Whoa, whoa Mik, seems a bit harsh, don't you think?" Said one of the goblins with a bow off to the side mockingly. "I mean, these adventurers are just enjoying a nice stroll. It'd be pretty mean to out right attack them and take their stuff."
The goblin with the spear scratched his chin and pretended to think it over.
"I suppose you have a point there Muglof." He said with a grin. "I'll tell you what- I'm in somewhat of a good mood, and my men are quite nice guys as you can tell. Let's say you pay us....a 100 gold per person, and we'll let you pass. Sound fair?"
*D'Jangus eyes up the goblins before him taking stock of the situation before letting out a sigh*
"Look here Mik, your little band of scum looks better suited to prey on unarmed villagers and I think you'd last all of five minutes in a real fight. So I've got a counter offer to your proposal...we continue on our way unmolested and your entrails get to stay in your body"
Halamar slowly and carefully undid one of the ties on his sash as he moved out to the left flank, adjusting his grip on his spear with a quick flourish. He widened the presence of the group as he unassumingly moved towards one of the bow-blins. "It would work out best for you if you left as quickly as you came."
Mik began to look a little nervous. He leaned in to his ally next to him.
"Hey, maybe we shouldn't bother with these guys." He whispered, "They look like legitimate adventurers. With legitimate weapons."
The other goblin scoffed.
"You sound like Mergler." He responded, brandishing his short sword. "We can take them!"
"Yeah, but that's what Mergler said right before getting a knife in his back!"
The other goblin ignored the leader.
"We ain't going anywhere! This is our road, and if you don't pay the fee we'll clobber you!" He yelled, twirling his short sword around
We'll head to Roll20 for the fight and initiative. If you haven't been able to get into it yet, please let me know so I can get a character sheet created. Please PM me your emails so I can send you invites.
Dingmamon: the sanctuary would help if the group tried to just murder hobo them from the start, or if they ran away, but if you describe them how you did, i don't think they'd just attack for no reason

shogungari: oh hey, we got a new guy
Jan 19, 2016 16:33:14 GMT
Dingmamon: yeah, i got the notification earlier. haven't heard anything from him yet
Jan 19, 2016 18:22:28 GMT
shogungari: I just posted another ad on Reddit so hopefully we can get another game set up soon
Jan 19, 2016 18:26:41 GMT
shogungari: you thinking of restarting tempest statum for the new players? I could even remake with a normal character

Doublewhip: Saw your Reddit ad. Don't forget to reach out to and affiliate with other similar forums!
Jan 20, 2016 1:29:36 GMT
Dingmamon: thanks Doublewhip, we'll keep an eye out for some similar forums.

Dingmamon: and possibly gary, though at this point i am having a hard time coming up with campaign ideas.
Jan 20, 2016 14:51:58 GMT
shogungari: Really? I have a few if you wanted to borrow them
Jan 20, 2016 16:32:44 GMT
shogungari: Also, welcome Doublewhip

Guest: This place still active?
Apr 13, 2016 7:01:34 GMT
Dingmamon: not really. the guy who started it is in the military now, and those of us that did stick around had life stuff come up
Apr 13, 2016 20:12:19 GMT
shogungari: Hey Ding, I see you still come here. Any incentive to revive this place?
Jun 29, 2016 23:20:30 GMT
Dingmamon: I would love to, but really the only time I have to actually check it is when i'm at work. If you want to revive it by advertising and stuff, I will do what I can to keep it up and running smoothly for you, but I probably wouldn't be able to actively
Jun 30, 2016 18:58:23 GMT
Dingmamon: participate in any games
Jun 30, 2016 18:58:33 GMT
Dingmamon: By all means if you want to set something up and run it, go for it. I still have Admin access since Zekey left it to me when he joined the Navy, and from conversations with him, he probably isn't coming back
Jun 30, 2016 19:00:30 GMT
Dingmamon: Alternatively, if you wanted to set your own one of these up, you would have the ability to shape it and tailor it to what you wanted a bit more, and I'd be willing to help keep things organized on it so you can focus on people and games
Jun 30, 2016 19:05:52 GMT
shogungari: Nope, just seeing if you had something planned.
