Assuming nothing appears before his turn, Viskek takes the dodge action and otherwise stays put. He ignores the crowd, instead focusing on the arena and the impending battle.

Rez gives a bellowing roar, but not knowing what he's roaring at, it comes out a bit hesitant.

Jakar is a little less....loud than Rez. He gives the audience a short bow, before focusing on the strange wall and what may be behind it.

(So yeah, delaying my action.)

So... They brought us to the arena. There's a wall down the middle of it. And everyone is just standing there staring at it. Is that about right?

Karn walks (not stomping) to where he can start to see around the wall. Staying well back from it. Let's say he moves a little forward, but mostly to the right.

Narok murmurs something to himself, a sickly glow emanating from a crudely-carved wand made out of bone, readying to target the first creature that appears from behind the wall. When it appears, a quick flick of his wand sends a grayish bolt of necrotic energy across the arena at his target, enveloping it in what appears to be a skeletal ethereal hand that refuses to let go.

Readied Action: Chill Touch (+5): CRITICAL HIT! 12 damage Necrotic (6 Base + 6 Crit), cannot regain hitpoints until Narok's next turn, undead develop disadvantage on attacks vs. Narok until end of his next turn

((man, that's a mouthful))

A bit of travel and family caused a bit of delay but here comes the exciting update!

Team 1 initiative.

Karn moves around the, getting closer to look behind the wall. He's a man of action and knows the audience can get a bit impatient if people don't go for blood within moments of getting let out. They do tend to be more understanding towards mindless creatures but not by much. You can't really see anything from your current angle.

Martin
Samuel
Karn
Narok


Team 2 initiative

Despite the mediocre roar nothing seems to appear from behind the wall as of yet.

Bort
Jakar
Rez
Viskek

Viskek scowls and moves carefully towards the right side of the wall (normal move), keeping away from it and using the dodge action.

He'll grunt "Follow me" to Jakar and indicate that Rez abd Bort should move round the other side while they see what's there. He doesn't really care if they listen to him or not though.

Martin will match Karns movement as a mirror image, when he arrives, he'll ready a spell.

Thinks, wouldn't it make more sense for me to stick with you and Bort with Rez? It's gonna take me almost all my movement just to get over to where Rez is now, let alone follow him around the wall.

Karn is torn between reasonable caution (walk to the edge of the wall and peer around it) and showmanship (walk right around it, bold as brass). He's got a pretty good guess what he'll find (doesn't take a genius to realize there's one arena and two teams). Four on one is not great odds, even for him. But it would look impressive...



To Hell with it! He's here to make a name for himself, and you don't do that hiding behind walls for no reason! Can always duck behind it to let the rest of the team catch up.

Karn walks forward along the edge of the arena (and just slightly to the left), stopping one row back from the wall. (Moving west one, north four).

With a shrug, Jakar moves with Viskek, keeping a low profile as he approaches the wall.

- Moving straight forward 7 squares (35ft movement) and doing the Dodge action.

Here's the map for our group. I'm on the far right with Viskek, Bort and Rez are on the left. Bort can come with us if he wants, but it makes sense for someone to back up Rez too. Especially since he's our healer :lol:

Chicken team:

Martin moves forward, readies a spell (i assume eldritch blast), not able to see any opponents. Samuel looks for an opponent ready to likewise blast with a spell.
Karn gets closer, ready for a fight, sure the other fighters are right around the corner. What he sees is disgrace and insults as one paltry chicken and one healthy chicken looks at him. The paltry chicken just keeps focus at Karn while the healthy one clucks and storms away.
Martin, Samuel and Narok sees a chicken run out from the wall and fires their spells off at the sudden enemy presence. Please roll attack, except Narok who already have.

Image

You got 10 ft of movement left and an action if you want to use it wears :)

Initiative
Martin
Samuel
Karn
Narok



Team 2

You all start moving closer to the opposite wall, getting ready to avoid whatever is behind them.

Spider, I'm not sure if you wanted to Dash or dodge with Rez, if you wanted to dash I can move you 30 ft forward.
