Njardun wasn't used to all this swimming before getting in position for a marine attack. With the navy they had usually attacked from small rowboats when stealth was needed. More common was just to approach with the main ship and board the pirates they hunted. This was completely different and he just had to adapt, something he was pretty good at. He left his pack and shield behind on Sweet Pea, checked the new longsword in its scabbard by his hip. The helmet didn't fit very well and obscured his vision but it might serve a purpose.

His clothes were still wet from the previous swim when he dropped into the water again. He didn't see much in the darkness but approached Eirann who he was assigned together with. "I don't see much down here. You are a faster swimmer than me but I need someone to follow in the water. Will you stay just ahead of me and keep my pace until we reach our target?"

"D'ya have a healer onboard?" Knell asked Miss Blueblood. She was still bloodied and prefered not to enter battle at less than half strength.

"Oh, and, anyone have a spare dagger or dueling knife to lend me?" she asked her new shipmates.

The ships cook had been busy heating up a seaweed broth that was prepared earlier and in another pot was cooking fresh rice.

On the menu for Red Knell there were snacks being prepared of hot seaweed soup with fresh kelp thinly chopped and some dried black fungus and lighty toasted seasame seeds... supposed to do wonders for hangovers... And rice balls wrapped in dried toasted seaweed with pickled plum. They were a tasty treat anytime.

Liang Lin emerges with a tray with two bowls for Red Knell, one has the steaming Seaweed soup,, the other has two riceballs flecked with dried pickled plum shavings... 3 snacks heal 9 hp.

"Here eat this while you wait for the healer... Morn wasn't it ?" Liang Lin smiles as she hands Red Knell the tray of snacks to eat.

Grusk Hammerfist

Grusk.png.1df68b3bc2fd2b7c0a66549cfd2cd6a6.pngGrusk Hammerfist Smuggler
Young adult 6'1" male half-orc, Paladin of Conquest 5 CN

 

Stats

Init +2, +1 mithril breastplate (AC 17, HP 59/59) Currently AC is 16 due to disguise.

conditions normal, base move..30', swim and climb 30'

Skills Athletics +8, Insight +4, Deception +5, Intimidation +5, Persuasion +5


stats.. STR 21, DEX 14, CON 16, INT 11, WIS 12, CHA 14

saves STR +5, DEX +2, CON +3, INT +0, WIS +4, CHA +5 ..spells.. CHA..prof.. +3

spell... Casting +5, Save DC 13 

prepared (4) Cure Wounds, Divine Favor, Thunderous Smite, Lesser Restoration, Prayer of Healing slots (4/2)

Perishables Potion of Greater Healing, 40 Arrows


Half-Orc Traits: Darkvision, Menacing, Relentless Endurance, Savage Attacks

Paladin Traits: Divine Sense, Lay on Hands, Divine Smite, Fighting Style, Spellcasting, Divine Health, Sacred Oath, Extra Attack, Aura of Protection

 

Appearance: An intimidating mountain of muscle standing at 6'1" tall. He generally is wearing some worn, but nice pants tucked into the tops of his leather boots with a thick belt around his waist holding them up. A dagger hangs from the belt. On the top he wears a sleeveless shirt of fair quality and a bandana on his head. Aside from the large bow and large quiver on his back he carries no other weapons. There are several tattoos on his arms and he walks with more of a bounce to his step than his large size would have one expect.

 

Equipment: Chainmail suit of Waterdeep guard (so current AC is actually 16 as he is not wearing his +1 breastplate), Shield of Waterdeep guard, Helmet of Waterdeep guard, +2 Longsword, Oversized Longbow w/20 arrows, Belt of Hill Giant Strength, Gloves of Swimming and Climbing, Eldritch Claw Tattoo, Holy Symbol of Tempus tucked under his shirt/armor at this time.


Grusk stores most of his gear below decks, but keeps his large longbow. He is more comfortable with it then a crossbow and it hits harder. When Red asks for a dagger he takes his off his belt and tosses it to her, sheath and all.

Here ya go Red. May it serve you well.

With preparations done he makes his way back down into the row boat. If someone else is joining him in the boat he will wait for them to climb in, then he sets to rowing to get himself into position. He stops when he can dimly see the lights on the deck of the Mary Rose and can see the nearby docks to keep an eye out for the Port Authority. He then waits for the others to do their part. He keeps an eye out for anyone else approaching the ship.

Phlebas offers a mock salute at the Bosun's orders, and quickly checks if there's berths assigned where he can stow his kit. If not, he'll just drop it down below. "Unfortunately I left all my spares back at the tavern," he shrugs apologetically, "but looks like you're sorted."

He makes sure both his dagger and the barnacle-clad iron rod are secure in his belt, and his goggles are still tight. Then he drops into the water alongside the baby kraken and the sea elf. Seeing what he assumed was the druid watching the surface, he opens his mouth and speaks, garbled noises and bubbles floating free. Strangely, the kraken finds the sounds resonating amongst the sacs of its body, and somehow translating into speech as clear as if Phlebas was standing next to him topside. "Any questions or suggestions? I don't rightly know how your powers work, but I'm assuming you understood the plan." He didn't quite understand it, but since meeting the undead pirates he found by the end of the conversation their speech - although spectral - was clear and no longer garbled. He tried not to dwell on the circumstances of his sudden understanding, and what that might imply for his own fate or state... Best keep looking forward towards those anchor lines. He gestures to Finn to lead the way. Not only does the sea elf know the way, he'll likely receive a better reception too.

Years ago, at the Red Abbey, Knell had been treated to a meal of dishes from the far east. She had found it delightfully exotic. But having dined less than an hour earlier, she was tempted to refuse the deadly cooks offering. Then a memory came to her. She'd been asked by her sister about the meal. She had found it difficult to describe. In the end, she explained that the meal had left her feeling light and refreshing rather than heavy and ready for a nap.

Knell reconsidered the rice balls and soup bowls on the tray. And she considered the very deadly cook.

A moment later, she graciously accepted two rice balls and one of the steaming bowls of soup. "Thank you," she offered with a little bow to the cook, surprised to feel warmth within her even before the first sip of hot soup.

The redhead stashed the two rice balls in a coat pocket just in time to catch Grusk's dagger. "Thanks!" she replied, not able to conceal her excitement. Setting the bowl down on a barrel lashed to the deck, Knell secured the dagger to her hip, then drew it, pleased with the blade. Sheathing the dagger, she met Grusk's eyes and joked, "What kind of lady doesn't carry a dagger, right?"

But the soup was calling her now. She took up the bowl and began carefully sipping the steaming broth. Soon she had a rice ball in her other hand and was alternating between soup and rice ball.

Finn sliced through the murky waters, his short spear at the ready. Pausing just before the ship's bow, he surveyed the shadowy depths for lurking eyes before approaching the thick rope that anchored the Mary Rose to the seabed.

"Aye, understand the plan, but this form is so alien, it's challenging to show agreement. Can you speak to all animals?" Jubal-kraken asks conversationally as they close on the Mary Rose keeping pace with the slower carpenter.

OBJECTIVES

@JagrHunter @Bearlord @PureChance @omegoku @DragonZaid @Wizard of the Coat @JubalBreakbottle @Draidden 

Stealth mission

... to avoid involving crew from below deck, silence and a swift suprise attack upon the night watch above deck to take them out quickly and quietly will ensure success for this part of the mission, scuttling of the 'Mary Rose'.


tasks

  • Cut anchor rope(s) :: Phlebas, Finn
  • loose sails from main masts :: Blueblood (Stern) , Red Knell (Bow)
  • Steer ship to harbour wall :: Shadow monk
  • Take out night watch :: (marines) Njardun, Eiranne, Jubal-Kraken... et al.
  • Take out all lanterns on Mary Rose :: All, no light sources to remain.
  • Port Authourity :: (distraction) Weapons master Grusk in rowboat to help take out night watch, may begin 60' + away from ship and reappear anywhere on the map when approaching the ship.
  • Escape into harbour :: (Stealth) All to leave once tasks aboard ship are complete,
    - Grusk in rowboat to escape harbour... dump the dead.
    - Everyone else will remain underwater, help Sea Elves to secure 'Mary Rose' underwater and retrieve cargo from sunken ship.
DM

You have maintained subterfuge and silence thus far being unknown to the night watch of the ship.

Illumination ... night time

Sea ... none, obscurement in waves
Ship ... lanterns illuminate the main deck, from the cross masts

Map square is 5' ... you may relocate your position as appropriate upon the map. Once Red Knell and Blueblood board the ship, I shall reveal the ships deck area. North is top of the map.

Booty ... there are (1) Longsword +2 ... (2) Crossbows with bolt cases... unclaimed for this mission.

@Alterangel ... Ship Astrologer may be in rowboat with Grusk if you are ready to join in.

pete2.jpeg.63deae77e7cdfdeeeaf44d0bb3e5e195.jpegms.'Blueblood' Pirate, Rogue, Swashbuckler, Duelist, Captain's daughter...
Young adult 5'11 female human variant fighter, CN eldritch knight 6

swimming costume, leather bracers, weapons belt, dagger, watertight mapcase, pouch, leather soft shoes.


It was a short swim through the choppy water as the stormy winds whipped up the waves towards the 'Mary Rose' that did not take long to eventually appear from the darkness. A single light, then another, then others gradually appeared through the haze of the stormy night. Remarkably there was no floating islands of seaweed between 'Sweat Pea' and the 'Mary Rose'. You could feel the current from the tide pulling you towards the harbour exit on every stroke...

ms. Blueblood swum just below the surface flanked by Red Knell swimming beside her on one side and her cook, Liang Lin on the other until the dark outline of the 'Mary Rose' came into view at which point they paused and spoke at the surface ...

"... Red ...we are the first wave... the others won't board until you signal me from the foremast... first avoid the crew and get up to the top of the mast to spy on any night crew to point out on deck ...when I give the order... release the sails top to bottom. I'll be on the rear mast... to release the sails."

ms. Blueblood makes a gesture with a one hand to indicate the 'release of the sails'

"...Marines ...watch out for Red and me, who will point out the nightwatch... when I raise my rapier... board the ship... swiftly and quietly does it.

Finn ...make sure all the anchor lines are cut, take someone with you and keep an eye underwater to report back to me once the night crew have been dealt with."

...and with that ms. Blueblood breaks company and *swims* to the Stern or rear of the two masted ship with Liang Lin, as Red Knell and some others swim to the Bow or front of the ship...

Plan

First Wave - Masks On

Red Knell, ms. Blueblood and Liang Lin climb aboard sneakily and climb up rigging or mast directly without being observed.

Marines await boarding order (DM: time to buff up) and reposition themselves on the map for a waterborne swift and silent attack upon the night crew as appropriate.

Finn and co... sever anchor lines (when revealed), scan underwater for dangers to report, prepare to board the 'Mary Rose'

Grusk in Rowboat can be at max darkvision range so to observe the goings on around one side of the 'Mary Rose'... you choose... North, East, West or South (on the map North is top). Please advise distance and bearing for Rowboat.


Second Wave - Masks on

Await Blueblood's orders

  • Board .. Everyone - Swiftly and silently take out night crew if you can to secure main deck without an Alarm being raised...
  • Release Sails .. Red Knell - After climb up rigging or mast directly without being seen, release sails from storm bindings... cut ropes to drop sails

Knell was stuffed and warmed by the cook's snacks, she again had a dagger, and now she found herself doing what she did best--a skullduggerous boarding action. All in all, her dismal evening was looking to end on a high note. She had a smile on her face as she melted into shadow, disappearing from the dark waves at Mary Rose's prow, only to reappear a heartbeat later up above atop the gunwale.

Of course, no one would see the smile, her face covered by the bandana, eyepatch and wide-brimmed hat.

Red Knell immediately slinked down onto the deck of the forecastle, crouching well out of sight of the gambling guards seated below on the main deck. Quietly, she padded barefoot across the rain-slicked deck to a spot between the bowsprit brace and the anchor wheel--so as to be hidden should a patrol climb up to the forecastle. Satisfied with her concealed position, the redhead looked around her, fearful of possible familiars--rats, birds or other small creatures--spying on her, then turned her attention to the foremast and rigging, considering the best concealed climbing approach up to the yard. Given her ability to instantly move through shadows up to a distance of some ten paces, Knell's climbing approaches were not constrained by details such as easy reach or access points.

The one-eye'd pirate again faded into shadows, appearing some thirty feet above in the rigging. With a combination of climbing and moving through shadows, she reached a position atop the yard where she could conceal herself from the gamblers below, but still survey the deck below.

"Good to hear, and good to hear you are the druid," Phlebas chuckles in reply to Jubal. His own skirt of spectral tentacles skull his half-dead form through the water with little apparent effort on his part, though it is not truly effortless nor as graceful or swift as the beast truly born of the sea. "To be honest, I'm not sure. Kinda noticed it happening with those long dead pirate we spoke to earlier, then some of the animals swimming by when scouting earlier. Didn't think to try it on the boat, I guess you're used to not speaking os there wouldn't have been anything the hear."

 

Much further conversation ends up being cut short by their new boss, and Phlebas wonders what the more seasoned sailor makes of her. "Heads up, looks like Blueblood has some new orders. Maybe the Captain's just a story and it's all her," he mutters to the baby kraken as he spins to get a better view. He nods once to signal his understanding, then drops down after Finn, keeping a wary eye out whilst the sea elf works. "Let me know if you need anything," he bubbles in their direction.
