Aldarren and Frederick sneak towards the sleeping hill giant, sword and pole arm held at the ready.

Alexander and Cedric wait within striking distance.

Milton, have you removed the children to safety? And are you guarding them or have you returned to attack the hill giant?

The giant is slumbering softly now, no longer is he snoring loudly. His back is still turned away from the fire and from the company that approaches.

The burned carcass of the black bear lies smoldering in the fire.

Aldarren reverses his sword and raises it high preparing to strike downward into the giant's neck. Frederick does the same with his pole arm.

Any other thoughts before the first blow is struck?

Milton moves the children further away and keeps them looking away from any violence.

@kjc Ha! I knew you'd find that! But you may only use one d30 per gaming session. How long would that be in a pbp?

Aldarren raises his battle axe and strikes! [He rolls a 28!]

The axe makes a sickening thunk as it strikes deep into the giant's neck. [7 points of damage!]

Frederick follows with a deadly strike with his pole arm at the face of the giant![total of 15!]

The pole arm cuts down on the surprised giant! [10 more points of damage!]

The hill giant staggers to his feet holding his bleeding eyes with one hand and prepares to back hand the monk!

Initiative! [3 for the party, 5 for the giant]

The hill giant swiped the monk heavily with a backhand, sending him hurtling across the campsite to lie unconscious [7 damage!]

Aldarren takes another swing at the howling brute...a miss! [7]

Alexander and Cedric charge into the camp with weapons at the ready.

Alexander stabs at the giant [a natural 20!] and drives his bastard sword deep into the giant's stomach! [14 points of damage!]

Cedric's mace bounces off the giant's tough skin [7 a miss!]

From out of the trees comes a streak of green fire, the magic missile hits the hill giant in the chest [4 points of damage] and
he stumbles and falls to the ground DEAD!

Alexander quickly rushes over to Fredrick in order to bind his wounds. "Fredrick! Are you alright..? Be calm now, for the Hill Giant lies slain thanks to your heroic efforts and the favor of Theos..."

Milton strains to see what has happened and says to the children, No need to look over there. Our friends are just making sure that the giant won't attack again. Let's see if I have more food for you... and fishes out a dried fish from his satchel.

Now that the residual energy of casting the spell has left his body, Tamerlane rushes to the prone form of Frederick. His concern is clearly palpable as he drops to one knee besides the monk, his worried eyes going from the monk to Alexander. "Is he...?"

Frederick soon opens his eyes, realizing that any more damage from the hill giant would have killed him.

Alexander and Tamerlane tend to the battered monk. [Frederick regains 1 hit point]

Actions?

Alexander sighs with relief: "He'll be alright, praise Theos..." Turning to Tamerlane: "Fredrick needs rest now. Night is already upon us, we might as well camp here as there is already a fire going. What do you think?"
