The Trap

With three members of the team captured the group heads out to rescue them. Naturally its a trap so we scout ahead and find the meeting place to be on the docks in a large open space normally filled with vendors, a salt market. The large open area favors the cultists with their fireballs, though were not helpless when it comes to range either.  We choose to attack from two sides. Chushi, Jing Min, and Yi from one side coming in on the roof of a large building.  The rest from the opposite side and going across a bridge.
Our Tactics roll gives the group 3 rerolls to use as needed.
Our friends are tied up in a fountain close to the building and we see 3 Gol-shan (big stench demons), 12 bone demons, 16 cultists, and 2 elites. A fox tail and a sorcerer.

Opening Move

Yi kills two cultists with his arrows, Jing Min drops down and guts another with his spear, Chushi sends his knife towards the fountain. On the other side Wu charges one of the big demons, Ren heads toward a bone demon between him and the leaders, Ting slams a cultist and Zhige backs up to the waters edge and hastes Ren.
Zhige summons her foxfire, Mouse escapes her bounds, Ko goes for a bone demon after easily making her HT roll to avoid the stench effects from the nearby stench demon. Yi kills two more cultists, Chushi frees Bohi as Dinghi freed himself as well.  All the prisoners are now free and Mouse grabs the knife.
Fireballs come at Yi who dodges, Christian gets two aimed at him, one of which is a crit failure -burning himself. Ren gets one crited at him but we use a reroll and it becomes a crit fail on the reroll.
Rang shoots a cultist with her crossbow but it dodged. Jing Min kills two cultists on the outer edge.
Zhige hastes Ting and sends her foxfire at a cultist.
Yi shoos the leader but he is magically protected. Wu uses Quicksilver Strike to reach a demon. Ko uses a reroll to avoid a crit hit by a bone demon, the rest of them fail to land a blow.
Ting charges the foxlady and hits with a crit, GM uses a reroll and she blinks away.
Game ends there due to external circumstances.


With 45 people on the board this was quite a chaotic mess, even listening to the recap. This part of the fight took just under 2 hours with most of the people not having to look up rules or things on a character sheet.
