The Arena - Pathfinder after dark - Sparta games

First meeting

The group awoke to a series of small rooms, the last thing they remembered was being….elsewhere….the goblin started ransacking the food and tossing some to the halfling, the young noble in the corner pulled out his rapier and took up a defensive stance unsure of his surroundings. After a moment the room started to pull them all together now matter how hard they fought the urge, when they got formed into a circle in the center they all noticed they glowed with energy and then a flash…

They found themselves floating on a rock island in the void of nothingness a few other smaller islands chained to the mainland, around them where cases of weapons and armor of power, on a smaller island stood a tall four armed creature that spoke into their minds, Scarlett tried to communicate with the creature, however IT (the goblin) decided the dagger was too tempting and crossed over for it. The creature pounced onto the mainland and started throwing adventures into the void…..

The journal of Cole Maxwell,
Day 2

Thus I found myself with the young lord Afon and a heard of peasants back in the dry dusty wastes of Osirion, a place I had honestly hoped to never be again, surrounded by a multitude of unwashed peasants. When I tripped in my slightly drunken state a was assaulted by some abnormally large desert person, who I promptly ignored while trying to determine a way to get myself and Afon back to our own lands.
Being told that we had to fetch some bauble or something from within a twisting winding canyon. Afon and I, being the only ones with any skill in climbing or apparently stealth climbed the side of the canyon to scout ahead, lest the religious type having a fit of some sort walk into an ambush with the rest of his flock.
As we scouted ahead we saw bones and heard the clicking of giant insects of some kind. As we prepared an ambush we were snatched to a different place by a being of unholy darkness. Once there Afon and I were forced to fend of the advances of some truly hideous female creatures. After killing one, the lead wench pressed her attentions on me which I duly rebuffed first by stabbing her and then kicking her in the unmentionables when that didn’t work.
She mistook my attempts at fending her off as encouragement and thus tried to eat my face. After that its all a blur until coming awake back where the whole horrible day started.

Time to find friends

Well the big annoying sparta guy gives us money and says scout this hive of scum and villainy, oh wait, we are not going home, ok scout out this place called Tirunau. Lord poofy pants cant hide worth a damn in the forest by the way. Nice little marketplace outside of town for supplies, outer walls have lots of holes in them and lots of ways to sneak into town, not that I would do that.

My day with the drunken warpriestess
Hand up the warkilt

Bobo- We got into the village and I immediately went about looking for the local tavern. I found the local constable, a hot looking female warrior and asked her “Bobo need drinks. Where be tavern?” As an afterthought, cause I could, I said, “You are good-looking, want to have a drink with me?”

Sadly, this silky fleshed she-beast of a goddess said “No, I am not interested, but you can find the tavern over there.” And she pointed to the local tavern,.

Bobo gathered his comrades to partake in a refreshing beverage and said, “Come, we drink and get information.” The war priestess and the boy wonder rogue agreed and followed Bobo to the local tavern.

When entering the tavern, Sluggo looked around and immediately looked for locations open against the wall of the tavern, but there being none available, Bobo strolled up to the bar and said, “Give me your best ale and one for my friends as well.” to the bartender, a fellow of Orcish appearance and almost as tough as Bobo is at his finest.

The Orcish bartender provided the three of us a drink that he said was the best that he had. As Bobo slammed the ale, savoring the fine taste, he felt a fire running through his veins. Timmy wanted to get a wine, but Bobo ignored that nonsense. Pious was annoyed at Bobo’s lack of control and shamed at his apparent drunkenness.

As the alcohol kicked in, Sluggo was watching a drunken figure at the bar wondering if he might know about the sigil the team was looking for. Next to Sluggo, the warpriestresses was starting to show signs of affection to Bobo. She reached over to proclaim her desires to Bobo, but Sluggo was so busy with watching this mark that he barely noticed as the warpriestess slide her hand up Bobo’s warkilt.

Bobo, being a man of action, of course, would have taken the warpriestess for a ride, but Sluggo was to busy to allow the distraction. As the warpriestess started to reach towards Bobo’s manhood, the meanly Orcish bartender told them they needed to get out of the tavern as their actions were inappropriate.

Sluggo, annoyed that he wasn’t able to talk to the mark, got up and went over, while the warpriestess still clung to Bobo. Sluggo, knowing that conversation was going to be needed, said, “Hi I am Timmy the fire wizard. We are looking for the sigil.”

Bobo, knowing that Timmy’s talks were boring and not going to get anywhere said, “You will tell us what we need to know or I will slam your head against the bar!” in an intimidating manner. Being slightly tipsy, Bobo’s normally excellent sense of intimidation failed miserably and only upset the mark and the Orcish bartender. Being angry, the orcish bartender muscles up to Bobo to intimidate him, but Pious, being wise beyond his years, saw through the Orc’s intimidation attempts and laughed at the Orc.

At this time, with the warpriestress clinging to Bobo’s strongly muscled leg, Timmy said, “My dear, we are friends and compatriot’s but now is not the time for Bobo and you to mate.” With that, the team felt it was time to leave the tavern in continued pursuit of the sigil, as the boy wonder rogue had gotten information from the mark due to the Sluggo’s distraction that he had pulled off with the warpriestess at the expense of Bobo’s missing “happy happy sexy time.”

humans are stupid
attack on the orc outpost

Ok , so I know humans are not the brightest on the planet, however leaving thier good defence behind to attack a orc stronghold when your already outnumbered and behind enemy lines is a good way to wind up as goblin food, (for those not signed on the contract). However it turned out well, i got to sneak through the forest up to the camp while everyone was fighting and disable two big arrow throwie thingys, and I had found a nice new checkers partner untill lord puffy pants used a big rock thower to kill the poor giant. I will have to get revenge on puffy pants later.

Attack on the Orc Outpost
a.k.a. Terra the Tree Lizard
How do I keep ending up in these situations? I am an Alchemist, not someone suited to fighting in a GIANT DEATH MATCH WITH ORCS. Because of this, I chose not to argue with someone less than half my size ordering me to climb up into a tree and stay there. I must have looked so bizarre in that tree. I still don’t know how it managed not to break and how I managed to climb it in the first place. After the team moved out of sight I jumped over a few trees to keep close. First time went perfectly. Second time I managed to fall out of the new tree onto my face. As soon as I had stood up I found multiple arrows hitting me, thus encouraging me to run to the rest of the team. I finally caught up to them at the edge of the forest. I could feel every cut on my body ache as I gazed out onto the open plain that was a veritable DEATH TRAP with all of the Orcs, so I decided I wasn’t going to do that and get myself murdered. I guzzled down my lovely Terra’s Terrific Transportation and sunk down into the ground below. By doing so I eliminated the risk of being brutally murdered and it allowed me to stab Orcs in the feet with my dagger. Watching them dance was highly amusing. I mostly ignored what was going on with the chieftains, instead focusing instead trying my hardest to be useful by stabbing Orcs in the feet. When the Troll(?) went down I knew I had to have at least some of his bones. They were large enough to be an excellent source of bonemeal, and I would fight the little feral girl for some if I had to. Luckily I didn’t. Not much else to say about that. We won, I got bones, the girl got the rest of them, everybody but the Orcs are happy. The end.

Orcs are weird

Why didn’t I listen to mother and stay with the group. She said that following the elf and talking to it would get me into trouble. So now I am who knows where helping to fight orcs. Getting called a werewolf by an oni-born, and finding a surprisingly intelligent but feral halfling who will attack anything she thinks will take away her food. As she is gifted of the kami I will take her under my wing and do my best to help communication with the others. Snowbell still has the unhealthy facination with Scarlett. While I have somehow lost all diplomatic speech when speaking with nobles of other races, as I insulted to her face the queen of the merfolk. Thankfully she was forgiving and gave us a gauntlet that helped to bring back a fallen foe during the battle with the orcs. It seems that whoever is putting these groups together to torment the village, is not takng into account their inherent prejudices. Well all to our advantage then. Gotta go IT and Sul are playing a game that my very well turn everyones stomach. Flinging poo at flies to try and catch them.

A killing we will go!!
Christmas for Bobo

“Ah, smell the fresh blood, the warm afterglow of the fireballs. Yes, the blood of my enemies soaks my axe.” Bobo smiles at the thoughts running through him of his recent epic battle with the small orcish horde.

When first we came upon the orcs, Bobo screamed a warcry and hurled a javelin gutting an orc and spilling its lifeblood out with a single throw. Encountering a group of the orcs, Bobo felt like it was time to let the slaughter run.

At no time did Timmy think this was going to be as simple of an encounter with stupid orcs. Timmy knew that there was bigger fish to fry. After letting Bobo slay a few orcs and orogs, Timmy saw an opportunity to cross the battlefield and go after bigger game. A giant!! surely this would be an epic challenge.

When Timmy got to the giant, however, he noticed that it was confounded and dazed. At the same time, two of the Orc Chieftains started to bitch to each other about how it was all the other chieftain’s fault.

At this time, one of the Chieftain’s threw a fireball at the other and the two began to fight. Seeing an opening, Sluggo quietly walked up behind the Orc Cheiftain who had been riding a worg and hacked into his back, dropping the fool Orc and teaching him not to turn his back on Sluggo.

The other Orcish Cheiftain looked at Bobo with much anger since Bobo had just removed the Orc’s chance to kill his former Chieftain comrade. Bobo took this in stride and swung his axe cleaving a large gash into the Chieftain’s chest. Another member of the party swung at that Chieftain and hit him in the back weakening him to the point of death. The mad Orcish Chieftain’s death action was to start casting another fireball to smote all those around him. Timmy noticed the chanting start and new that a good smack to the head with Bobo’s axe would knock that nonsense out of that and with that, BOOM!! second dead orc chieftain.

It was like it was Christmas in June.
