@Tenshi, I wasn't expecting your visitors but I went ahead with the idea that Lea has a contract to kill Martin. She is of course conflicted and perhaps she could find the winged girls hunting him and help him fight them off instead of killing him herself. Also if you think we need Isledra, we could time skip her to the city for the fight as well. She would be following her mother's magic to find him.
It would probably be easiest if Iseldra's dream happened a couple of days ago and she's at the city. Maybe her pounding on the tower door is what draws Martin into the open and lets both Lea and the winged girls find him?
I was thinking the same dark forces that are sending the winged girls would put a hit out on him. Double their chances of snuffing him out before he reaches his full potential, or even realizes his potential. It is not an absolute necessity for me to have the contract but she is already close to him. She doesn't really need to know the reason, in fact she normally wouldn't.
Iseldra could also join later, I don't necessarily see all the girls converging at the same moment. I don't know that she would be banging on the door in the middle of the night, but I'm flexible especially on a starting scene.
I could see them having to defend the tower against the winged invaders until the wizard arrives, perhaps he knows something of Martin's destiny.
Let me know if you want me to write another post for my girls. I could see her on a roof top with Martin in her sights as the winged girls attack.
I would think Iseldra would stick out pretty well in the dreary wasteland you portray, certainly she wouldn't seem to belong there.
If I follow correctly you are going to have them ambush one girl (Iseldra) and Lea will be in a position to see it and attempt to intervene? Since I'm supposing her shooting Martin wouldn't do much for our story
I am fine if you want to have Iseldra attacked outside the front door as Lea is watching.
@Tenshi I forgot the wolf again, he rolled an 11. Also with Lea basically concealed and in position for a shot, wouldn't she get initiative and back stab bonus, or is she too far away? I'm good either way, just asking the question.
The wolf and other animal companions like my familiar generally act on their owners initiative, so the wolf will act at the same time you do unless Tenshi decides to track it separately.
There's two ways Lea's stealth can be considered, at Tenshis call. First is a surprise round, where she can make an attack before anyone else can react and then acts in the normal initiative order. The second is to treat the enemies as flat footed when Lea takes her first turn, which means they take a heavy defense penalty for not knowing you exist.
You get sneak attack bonus when 1) enemy cannot defend themselves properly such as not knowing you're there or being somehow incapacitated and 2) you are using melee or ranged attack within 40 ft
Lea, when your first crossbow attack goes off, it will get the back-stab bonus.
Currently everyone but Iseldra and her wolf is tagged. Now that you see the current situation, has Lea's action changed any? If not, we'll resolve it.
