"I guess it rises up to the center of the sky at noon, then goes back the way it came? Stohp muses aloud. The going seems to be easier now, no one is getting stuck by brambles, for which Stohp is grateful.

Dorbin (JeffO) [AC:13/13/10 HP:37/40 CMD:15] 
Thursday March 15th, 2018 11:50:01 AM

Dorbin mumbles, "Someone give that guy some food already!"

"Weird place. Unless anybody else has any more ideas on how we should go about this, I'm going to just keep heading in a straight line. It's kind of what I'm best at."

Stock does halt the march for a moment so he can take a look around and check again for tracks.

It's not ominous at all that the GM is buffing the divine caster's abilities!

Zanderallen (Zachary H) HP: 67/67 AC: 23 T: 11 FF: 22 CMD: 19 
Thursday March 15th, 2018 1:33:43 PM

Taking his gauntlet off for at least the 10th time Zander inspects his hand closely. Still nothing. Finally resigning himself to the discomfort his locks his gauntlet back in place. "Micah do you feel it? It almost feels like if I just spoke out loud enough Domi himself could answer here."

Thursday March 15th, 2018 5:56:43 PM

"Yes, I do," responds Micah, a bit surprised by the question. "But I have no plans to take this armor off to scratch it." he adds, wiggling his shoulders in an attempt to get some relief.

(DM MikeK) - Bloodweed 
Thursday March 15th, 2018 8:45:42 PM

The party marches on.

Sid occupies his mind coming up with a predictive model for how exactly the sun is doing that. He comes up with two theories. They are both really good. He congratulates himself for his own ingenuity.

Stock keeps moving forward.

For another hour.

At which point the grass changes again. Blue, bamboo like shoots pierce the sky.
But that's not what causes the Shields to pause.

This grass is infected.

An all too familiar sickly sweet scent wafts on the air, and each shoot of the blue bamboo grass is wrapped in blood red creeper vines, with small red leaves.
A quick inspection to the right and left reveal no end to the sickness.

Leaving the party with a choice. Go through, or turn in a different direction?

Bartomus(Rod) HP: 31/34 AC: 13 (11+2); Perc+7;Heal+8 
Friday March 16th, 2018 2:34:29 AM

The smell of warm bread eventually gave way to the sickly sweet scent of something over ripe. As the pungent smell grew, Bartomus looked about and saw the reddish tinged grass up ahead.

"So, I say we go another way," he said as the came closer to the red vines. "Maybe we walk along the vines, at a good distance from those things."

Stohp (Mitch) HP: 42/45hp AC: 19/13/15 CMB: +9 (11 w/flail on disarm/trip) CMD: 19 +2 vs grapple, disarm (Sickened) 
Friday March 16th, 2018 7:05:01 AM

Standing and frowning at this new obstruction, Stohp considers their options for several moments.

Is there another way though? We could spend hours trying to find a way around and end up having to go through anyway. Perhaps we should split up, half of us going each direction for, say, an hour, then meet back here to report if there's a way around?"

Stock (JonM) HP: 60/65; AC: 21/14/18; CMB: 8; CMD: 24 
Friday March 16th, 2018 9:35:20 AM

"Ugh. I feel like we've been here before. I really have no need to wander in there and we have no reason to believe that the claw is in there. If you guys agree with Stohp, I'll volunteer to go right."

Stock does not look happy to see this stuff. He is not hiding his displeasure at all.

Dorbin (JeffO) [AC:13/13/10 HP:37/40 CMD:15] 
Friday March 16th, 2018 12:29:10 PM

Dorbin says, "Nope, no way am I walking through that stuff. Not happening."

"I'm not sure I like the idea of us splitting up. Maybe we flip a coin and just all head in that direction."

Micah (John) HP: 52/52 AC: 25/13/25 CMD:17 
Friday March 16th, 2018 12:59:07 PM

Micah contemplates the implications of the new development. After some consideration, he surmises, "I agree with Dorbin. Our choice was arbitrary, so their is, as of now, no reason to continue in what would be a dangerous direction. Without landmarks and no certainty of the stability of the landscape, we have no assurance we could retrace our steps and rejoin after splitting up.

"in the absence of any other information. One direction is as likely to be correct as the other."

He turns to Sid as he pulls out a coin and says before tossing it up, "Call it in the air.

Zanderallen (Zachary H) HP: 67/67 AC: 23 T: 11 FF: 22 CMD: 19 
Friday March 16th, 2018 1:31:02 PM

About to volunteer to lead half the party left, Zanderallen pauses as Dorbin and Micah speaks up. His brain runs through the thought of the very ground shifting and leaving the two groups hopelessly separated. "If we weren't in the Sargrass I would agree with checking both ways. But we are and random seems as good a choice as any we've made so far." Not sure is Sid can see what Micah is doing from the front of the group Zander prepares to call 'Heads is to the right' if Sid doesn't make the call.

Sid(Andrew) HP: 34/34; AC: 17/15/13; CMB: 2; CMD: 16) 
Friday March 16th, 2018 2:27:12 PM

"I do believe we've been going on a fairly straight course," says Sid as he pulls out a quill, ink, and paper and starts making notes on his theories, "but yeah, this isn't getting us nowhere... or anywhere for that matter. And I vote for NOT going through the infected blue bamboo."

"Oh, uh, uh, Heads!"

Bartomus(Rod) HP: 31/34 AC: 13 (11+2); Perc+7;Heal+8 
Saturday March 17th, 2018 1:50:54 AM

"We are not using a coin toss," Bartomus started to say but watched in total disbelief as the rest seemed to agree with Zanders approach. He rolled his eyes and sighed as the coin came down from it's brief flight.

(DM MikeK) - Coin Toss  d4=2 ;
Saturday March 17th, 2018 10:27:19 AM

There is unanimous and immediate agreement that walking through blood weeds infected grass is not gonna happen.

Stohp offers to split up, but eventually, the Shields decide to stick together and let Wardd decide the direction.

Micah tosses a coin, and Sid calls heads while Bartomus rolls his eyes in disbelief.

The coin lands heads. Sid wins!

Sid(Andrew) HP: 34/34; AC: 17/15/13; CMB: 2; CMD: 16) 
Saturday March 17th, 2018 2:40:51 PM

Sid looks at Micah, "So what way did I choose?"

Micah (John) HP: 52/52 AC: 25/13/25 CMD:17 
Saturday March 17th, 2018 4:53:10 PM

"Left it is," replies Micah, returning the coin. As he does so he explains to Bartomus, "In the absence of any other information, fate, chance, or the gods are what we have to rely on."

He then heads off in the indicated direction.

Bartomus(Rod) HP: 31/34 AC: 13 (11+2); Perc+7;Heal+8 
Saturday March 17th, 2018 5:13:21 PM

He worked hard to stifle the laugh that was working its way up from his chest and he tightened his throat to capture it before it broke forth from his lips. He rubbed his lips and face with his right hand as the glaive rested against his shoulder. "Well then what did Wardd, or is it Pantheon, tell us to do Zander?"

Stohp (Mitch) HP: 42/45hp AC: 19/13/15 CMB: +9 (11 w/flail on disarm/trip) CMD: 19 +2 vs grapple, disarm (Sickened) 
Sunday March 18th, 2018 4:50:50 PM

Stohp shrugs. Fair enough, she'd forgotten for a second that they'd picked this direction at random. As such no real reason to risk going through the infected grass, heck what they're after could be the opposite direction for all they knew.

Dorbin (JeffO) [AC:13/13/10 HP:37/40 CMD:15] 
Monday March 19th, 2018 11:30:48 AM

Dorbin continues along with the others through the tall grass, being careful to stay far away from the nasty grass as possible.

Stock (JonM) HP: 60/65; AC: 21/14/18; CMB: 8; CMD: 24 
Monday March 19th, 2018 1:17:59 PM

Once a direction is chosen, Stock gets back out in front, using his keen eyes to keep the party clear of the infected grass. (OOC - Is it still dark?)

After a while, he turns to Bartomus and asks, "Can't you turn yourself into a bird or something to see what's in the middle of this red, grassy mess?"

Zanderallen (Zachary H) HP: 67/67 AC: 23 T: 11 FF: 22 CMD: 19 
Monday March 19th, 2018 1:19:51 PM

"According to Micah, Sid's call means we go left.Let's keep along the edge of the infected area in case there is a break somewhere we can get through. If we run out of other options I could go a short way in and see if there is something in there." Zander keeps his position in line as the party turns and continues marching. He keeps a wary eye on the red grass, just within vision of their marching line.

(DM MikeK) - To the left, to the left 
Monday March 19th, 2018 8:34:02 PM

The Shields turn left.

Keeping the infected blue bamboo within sight on their right, the adventurers journey another couple of hours before noticing the red weed infection disappearing.

Following Zanderallen's lead, the group accordingly turns again, and resumes their course toward the far off hills, this time through tall, blue bamboo shoots.

The blue grass is plentiful, but the shoots are quite slender, meaning it's easier to walk through than anything experienced thus far.

Stock asks Bartomus about turning into a bird. OOC - It is light.

At that same time, a shadow passes over the group.
Looking up, everyone is stunned to see a large wooden object, at least 80' long, silently pass directly overhead as it skims the top of the grass some 15' above their heads.

The object blots out the sky for a few seconds, and then is gone.

It was moving in the same direction as the group, and maybe a degree or two to the left.

Perception 15 Highlight to display spoiler: { And was that sound really the flapping of a sail? }

Monday March 19th, 2018 8:38:40 PM

Sid looks up, "I think that was a ship!" Sid pulls out a grappling hook and ties it to rope and looks around. "Anyone feel up to going fishing?"

Micah (John) HP: 52/52 AC: 25/13/25 CMD:17  d20+4=11 ;
Monday March 19th, 2018 8:39:34 PM

Micah is intrigued by the end of the red grass. I wonder what affects the type of grass in a general region and if this blood tinge is the result of some event or perhaps some thing he muses to himself.

He reflexively ducks when the shadow passes overhead. He stifles a cry; instead he whispers excitedly, "What was that?"

Bartomus(Rod) HP: 31/34 AC: 13 (11+2); Perc+7;Heal+8  d20+7=27 ;
Tuesday March 20th, 2018 2:04:27 AM

"A taur flying, you must be mad," Bartomus laughed and shook his head as they walked along. They continued their walk and fortunately the way was easier than before. Then he heard it, or rather felt it, or maybe saw it out of the corner of his eye. Something was coming up behind them, moving quickly, and above them and the grass.

He turned to catch it as it moved overhead and he could have sworn that he heard something flapping. Like cloth being moved in a hard wind.

"Aye Sid a ship indeed," he nodded in affirmation. "Do you think you could hook one? If so, we would have to move pretty quick. I am game!

Stohp (Mitch) HP: 42/45hp AC: 19/13/15 CMB: +9 (11 w/flail on disarm/trip) CMD: 19 +2 vs grapple, disarm (Sickened) 
Tuesday March 20th, 2018 4:48:55 AM

Stohp frowns up at the strange sight. "We might want to call out and say hi before we go grappling it. I doubt the owners would appreciate some random strangers grappling it and climbing aboard unannounced and uninvited.

Stock (JonM) HP: 60/65; AC: 21/14/18; CMB: 8; CMD: 24  d20+9=14 ;
Tuesday March 20th, 2018 11:40:13 AM

Stock just stares in surprise at the ship overhead, momentarily dumbfounded.

"What in the blazes is that? Kind of unfriendly of the buggers to buzz us like that and not even shout out a hallooo...I don't trust it. Sid - if you go tying on to one, I'll come with but just you be on your guard."

Dorbin (JeffO) [AC:13/13/10 HP:37/40 CMD:15] 
Tuesday March 20th, 2018 12:00:18 PM

Dorbin freezes as the ship passes overhead. His is quite disoriented by the idea of a ship in the air over their heads in the grass. That doesn't make any sense. He stops and stands still, waiting to see if the grappling hook rope trick is really going to work.

Stohp (Mitch) HP: 42/45hp AC: 19/13/15 CMB: +9 (11 w/flail on disarm/trip) CMD: 19 +2 vs grapple, disarm (Sickened) 
Tuesday March 20th, 2018 12:41:07 PM

”they probably didn’t even see us in this tall grass. Stohp points out.

Zanderallen (Zachary H) HP: 67/67 AC: 23 T: 11 FF: 22 CMD: 19  d20+5=13 ;
Tuesday March 20th, 2018 1:30:56 PM

Curious as to what might in the middle of the infected area Zander is content to follow around the edge until they find something different. As he hears the stalks rustling overhead he turns to see some huge object passing directly overhead. As he hears his companions call out he attempts to hail the vessel before it gets too far past them, "Hello above! Anybody aboard?"
Perception 13

(DM MikeK) - Ship Ho! 
Tuesday March 20th, 2018 8:54:41 PM

Startled by the sudden appearance, and then disappearance, of what sure looks and sounds like a boat flying on top of the grass, the Shields react in different ways.

Stohp and Stock council caution, apparently forgetting they're talking to Sid.

The rogue is already fixing a rope to a grappling hook, although the object will be out of sight before he can do anything with it.

Zanderallen shouts out a hail.

Everyone is not sure if the hail was heard. There is no response, but after all, it would take some time to turn around.

A few moments after the object .... oh, let's just call it a ship .... passes, everyone hears a high pitched chirp/screech from up ahead, in the direction the ship is traveling. Distances are hard to judge, but it's not that fa off. The sound is animal-like, some kind of call. It is rather unnerving.

But, not nearly as unnerving as the answering calls from practically all around you.

There is a rush of movement heard in the grass, both right and left, as quite a few large unseen somethings race past the group, all heading toward the first call, along the same heading as the ship.

Micah (John) HP: 52/52 AC: 25/13/25 CMD:17 
Tuesday March 20th, 2018 8:58:43 PM

A bit disoriented by all the commotion, Micah hopes someone else has a better sense of what is happening. "Are these creatures with the ship or pursuing it?" he asks as he dons his shield.

Sid(Andrew) HP: 34/34; AC: 17/15/13; CMB: 2; CMD: 16) 
Tuesday March 20th, 2018 9:24:50 PM

Sid keeps the grapnel ready for use in his left hand and draws his rapier with his right, "Well, if we catch up with it I'm going to try and catch the thing. Wardd let the dice fall with us I hate fights like this."

Zanderallen (Zachary H) HP: 67/67 AC: 23 T: 11 FF: 22 CMD: 19 
Wednesday March 21st, 2018 9:44:42 AM

"I don't know but if they're hunting the ship, they might slow it down or stop it. And then those on board will probably need help. And following after the ship is just as good as anything else we've done since entering this never ending grassland. My vote is we follow. And make sure we stay close together." Zander also dons his shield, his eyes jumping back and forth at the things running past them.

Stock (JonM) HP: 60/65; AC: 21/14/18; CMB: 8; CMD: 24 
Wednesday March 21st, 2018 10:02:08 AM

"Zanderallen, Micah...I'll follow your lead. This is confusing."

Stock moves out away from the discolored grass to cover the group's flank as they move forward.

It seems we were surrounded...

Dorbin (JeffO) [AC:13/13/10 HP:37/40 CMD:15] 
Wednesday March 21st, 2018 2:48:12 PM

Dorbin ducks down when he hears all the things running through the grass. He looks around and considers fleeing back the way they came. When the group heads forward, he takes up a position in the middle, staying with the group the best he can, but stumbling now and then as they run.

Stohp (Mitch) HP: 42/45hp AC: 19/13/15 CMB: +9 (11 w/flail on disarm/trip) CMD: 19 +2 vs grapple, disarm (Sickened)  d20+12=31 ;
Wednesday March 21st, 2018 7:52:51 PM

Stohp draws her weapon and keeps her eyes and ears open (perception 31). "Stay ready. We saw those footsteps earlier, this might be a pack of something following that ship hoping for a meal. We don't want to become that meal."

(DM MikeK) - Fight 
Wednesday March 21st, 2018 9:59:31 PM

Somewhat disoriented and confused by the sights and sounds, the group is experienced enough to prepare for a possible fight.

Sid and Stohp draw weapons. Stock, Micah, and Zanderallen shift position to take flank and lead. Dorbin moves to the center of the group.

Pressing forward, everyone soon hears a loud thud, the sound of something large and solid hitting something else large and solid. There is more of that chirping, and then a humanoid shout.

The grass begins to thin even more, and it becomes obvious there is a large clearing only a few feet ahead, and from that clearing come the sounds of a struggle involving a lot of creatures or animals or somethings. There are no metal on metal clangs, so if there are swords and axes involved, there aren't many.

The group is seconds from breaking into the clear.

Micah (John) HP: 52/52 AC: 24/13/24 CMD:17 
Wednesday March 21st, 2018 10:24:30 PM

Micah enchants his shield then draws his mace, prepared to join the others in the advance.

Magic Vestment +2 AC included in block. Duration: 6 hours.

Wednesday March 21st, 2018 10:40:51 PM

Sid blends into the grass as best he can as he pokes his head through the grass.
