Thinking quickly, Pio ponders his options on the way to the keep opting for not to bother with exploring a nest of kobolds. "To have the door open for the others is the best choice now."
As Pio gets about half of the way along the wall of the keep, two of the kobolds suddenly straighten, one on the wall above the gate, and the other at the corner of the keep. The one at the corner waves towards Pio, and jabbers something in kobold-ish. From the pitch, it sounds like a question, or maybe a challenge? It begins to approach the disguised halfling....

Waving back to the sentries, the kobold Pio points to his left ear, then to his mouth, then shrugs shaking his head negatively putting on a disappointed look.

Suddenly changing his expression to a smiling face he points to the door.

While the others were looking through the crack between the two doors. Shannon kept a eye out. He fully expected something else to appear behind them.

The kobold squints at Pio, and repeats what it said earlier, its tone going a bit sharper. It stands perhaps opposite Pio, across the muddy path that leads to the closed doors of the keep. It glances over Pio's shoulder, and then towards the gate, and then back to Pio. It begins to growl a bit, deep in its throat.

It seems this kobold has grown suspicious. If Pio wants to continue to try to bluff, he'll need to roll another Charisma (Deception) check. Fortunately, the kobold is having to stare towards the rising sun, so Pio won't have to roll with Disadvantage.

Shannon, turned back around to see what was going on and whispered to the others...

Should we trust him.

Haldon, maintains his stance of readiness.

"Not sure, but are you both set?"

Horvik shrugged, and readied his axe and shield with a confused look on his face. "I have no idea what is going on. I'm ready to charge forward and put an end to this madness."

The kobold shakes his head, and points emphatically back over Pio's shoulder, barking what sounds like a command.

Looking back, kobold Pio pretends to be shocked putting one hand on his mouth and stepping back, closer to the sentries, until he is behind the one near the door. Willing to prepare himself to strike with his rapier from an advantageous position at both of them from behind.

To clarify: there is just one kobold at ground level with Pio, standing more or less across the path up to the keep’s doors, at about (12, 15 NE). Pio was at approximately (12, 19 NW).

Their altercation has drawn the attention of several of the sentries atop the walls....

Shannon takes aim at particular Kobold sentry on the stairwell. (15,28) While keeping mental note of a other target on the wall. (15,31)

Watching Shannon, Haldon will rush the nearest Kobold with his warhammer drawn, as soon as an arrow is released.

Horvik cautiously looked around the edge of the door in to the courtyard. He saw just the one kobold on ground level and several others on the wall. He ducked back behind the door. He leaned in to whisper to the dwarf. "Doesn't look like there are many on the ground level, but the wall sentries have the clear advantage with their position. We need to clear those walls as quickly as possible or we'll all look like pin cushions in no time. You rush the West stairs, and I will rush the East. The halfling and ranger can handle whatever is on ground level then aid us with ranged attacks once the ground is secure."

:shock: What a hit!
I'll apply this in a sec. But first, some housekeeping.

You guys get a surprise round on the kobolds! If I read how this works correctly, basically, it's a free round of actions from the surprise-ers before the surprise-ees can react, and then normal initiative kicks in.

I still need initiative rolls, gentlemen.


Edit: Updated battle map is here, in the OOC thread.

As the others begin to move, Horvik looked to the sky and called out. "Every day is another chance to earn glory. This is our chance!" When he looked back, the others had already started to move.

Shannon was way ahead of everybody else.

Taking advantage of his nearest and oblivious target, the hin furtively stabs the kobold looking for the spot where he could connect the deadliest and furtive of his attacks with his rapier.

Initiative roll
Initiative: [1d20+2] = 5+2 = 7

Rapier attack:
[1d20+4] = 15+4 = 19, damage with rapier: [1d8+2] = 4+2 = 6, sneak attack damage [1d6] = 2

Haldon rushes towards the kobold at 15,04, ready to swing his warhammer at the creature.

[1d20] = 17
