Many goblins were cowardly, but this was below even a goblin. Nocking another arrow, he sighted down his arm and gently pulled back. When his hand reached his ear, he released his hold on the arrow, sending it down the hall toward one of the goblins striking at his kin.

OOC: Ranged attack (+7) against flat-footed favored enemy (+2) in melee (-4) with deadly aim (-1)
Rolling 1d20+4:
(7)+4: Total = 11


Rolling 1d6+1:
(1)+1: Total = 2

The arrow clinks off the stone by the cultists feet, the target of your attack turns and simply hisses into the darkness.

OOC: Ok then your kin have surrounded the remaining living cultist in the hall and the captive members of your clan are currently being slaughtered, what do you do Grub?

Grub grasps her pickaxe, and, with a mighty downward swing, shouts, "Drizella judges you unworthy. DIE!"

With her kin surrounding the goblin it didn't have a hope in hell. Evidently her god is guiding the blow which buries the head to the shaft. Pulling the pickaxe back the head leaves the body, which slide off of the 'pick' with a hollow thud.

The goblin that turned to the hidden sniper grabs the next of your kin, brings a knife to it's throat and then shouts.

"Take another shot and she dies, stay back!"

The other cultist appears to be making some strange hand gestures at the opening of the hall. A moment late a bolt of dark energy shoots from his hands, over the heads of your kin and clansmen and then buries itself deep in the pile of furs. There's a hideous gasp behind Griz and Grub.

OOC: Griz you're up now. You can see the cultist in the entrance-way.

The goblin in the entrance way eyes go wide as the ray just misses him. Kanock sees the ray go wild.

OOC: Kanock you're up, one of your kin is a hostage, you could try to strike the cultist holding him but if you miss it will kill your kin. The other target is out in the open.

Shes dead anyway, it is but a matter of time for us all.

Kanock quickly drew and nocked another arrow, raised his bow once more, and let fly. His hate for many of his kin overpowering any restraint he may feel because of the hostage. Besides, the loss of another barren female would hurt less each day, until they were all gone.

Base: +7, Favoured enemy +2, in-melee -4 = +5

If it hits: 1d6-1, Favoured enemy +2

-afternote - well, that sucked...

Despite his intentions towards even the barren female the arrow goes well wide, breaking into splinters on the stone wall. The goblin holding the female hostage visibly flinches.

OOC: Grub you're up, cultist in the doorway. Another thing to note...some rounds have passed since the colourspray went off.

"YOU HAVE COMMITTED THE GREATEST SIN,"  Grub shouts in a religious fervor as she charges at the cultist with a hostage, "NONE TURN AGAINST THEIR KIN!"

OOC: Charging this guy.  +2 to hit, -2 to defense.

OOC: Guys would you prefer me using the dice roller or do you not mind the mystery of my rolls literally behind a screen?

The cultist manages to position the hostage in the way at just the right moment. The female collapses into a bundle by your feet...the pickaxe buried in it's stomach is a clue to the cause of this. The cultist in clear panic lashes out with its short blade at the priestess.

OOC: Does a 12 hit your AC?

The other cultist in the entrance way laughs maniacly before drawing a dagger and lobbing it into the fray of your kin. It howls with success as the dagger bites into the shoulder of a male, who still stands.

Your kin spread out like a swarm of rats, stabbing at the throats and chests of the unconcious enemies. Many of these foes give a death rattle before leaving this plane. The problem comes when the Bugbear is stabbed and immediately rise to its knees, the shiv still buried to the hilt in it's gut.

The magic and dagger slinging goblin collapses under a flurry of blows from the two of your kin not slitting throats.

Wailing, wailing fills the chamber as a creature rises from amongst the furs. Where your matron was covered in blanched red skin now odd and strange limbs emerge.

"My children, give over to the true gods, the saviour of goblinkind! Drink deep from the lake! Relieve your souls the burden of this plane!"

OOC: Ok as ever we have iniative order starting again. Griz you're up, right now all your kin have swarmed ahead of you. Your clan leader/priestess is behind you, damn near cackling.

OOC: Well it's now the arrow slinging kanock, the hostage taker is sans hostage and Grub is just to the side.

Disgusted with his shaky shooting, excuses flowing through his small mind about how he usually hunts single prey, and not large melees, Kanock fits another arrow. This is his fifth, and he lets fly at the one menacing Grub, hoping to not strike his companion.

OOC - Since Im not totally certain if he is in melee or not, Im just going to use a straight d20 roll and put the modifiers here:
Base +7, FE +2, -4 Melee
Rolling 1d20+5:
(5)+5: Total = 10

If it hits:
Base 1d6-1, FE +2
<img src="http://slangdesign.com/forums/Themes/default/images/dice.gif" alt="" />Rolling 1d6+1: <div style="background-color: #919191;">(2)+1: Total = 3 </div>

OOC: Damn you have the worst luck with that bow, despite a hefty modifier. Thank god we've got a good posting rate going at the moment. Well we've got the cleric to rely on, to be fair her pickaxe has killed more people than anyone else.
