D&D with a Chaotic Neutral Bard

Hello again to all of you. I return, and this time I actually got out of my home for once. Heh.

First, lets do my usual update. Eight books read since last week. YAY. Also I did some writing and things are coming along nicely.

Enough of that, here’s what you are all here for… maybe. Dungeons and Dragons!

So our little party returned from clearing out a grove full of goblins and their like. We got our reward from the elf we had talked to, and everyone just decided it was time to go out to the stronghold filled with orcs.

My character never one for a fight decided it was the right time to start asking everyone what their motivation was. Everyone but the teifling monk said it was all about money. So my bard, being chaotic neutral asked why we didn’t just kill everyone in town for money. He wasn’t serious, but he was trying to figure out the group. No one seemed to want to do that, but he continued to push, implying that orcs were just people too.

That was until the tiefling monk said that she didn’t like orcs because they killed her family. Well, that didn’t sit well with the bard, as he seems to like her. She’s been the only one that has been nice to him, even if she tends to treat him like a little kid at times.

They all decided we should take a rest before we headed out, and went back to their inn. The bard made a less than stellar performance, and then they all went to bed.

Waking up they all found their usual ride, the farmer that seem to come to town every day. They tried to get information about the stronghold, but he didn’t have much to say. Once they got near the fortification, we all wandered around to see what was going on. There were two orcs and a couple of wargs watching the only entrance to the place, but there was an opening in the back that allowed our elf to take a peak in. It was filled with orcs, but no other wargs were seen.

We decided we should take down the guards, and see about trapping the orcs inside, at least for awhile. We all charged, but rolled very poorly for our initiative.

The orcs ran towards us and chucked their javelins, missing everyone. Our Monk threw hers right back at them, but missed as well. Now I’m a bit iffy on exactly who did what, but I know I finished off at least one orc with Vicious Mockery. And also I know our monk took enough damage to faint, but I got her back up on her feet with healing words. But eventually we took all four monsters down.

The monk took exception to one of the wargs and skinned it, thinking to make something out of it.

We took a short rest to heal up, and with my song of rest everyone was healed and got back some spells. But that’s where we ended.

It was a shorter session, as we wound up talking and eating for a bit before we got down to playing. Yet it was another enjoyable visit, and I think we all had a good time, though we’re probably late enough into this campaign that we should start thinking about taking on the big baddy so we can move on to our next campaign.

Anyway, that’s all I have for you this time. I hope you all have an enjoyable week.
