Lyra continues to fight defensively, and is going to run away from her hobgoblin, through Cahline and Tahline, and around the carriage from the other side. She flanks the very first hobgoblin on the dire wolf, attacking it. ((Attack: 29 (19 Roll + 12 Base +2 Flanking -4 CE/FD); Damage: 5 (2 Base + 3 SA); AC 22))
Also, Lyra is always acting, so if someone has a high Sense Motive, it makes perfect sense that she might seem fake to them (or as if she's hiding something). I don't mind if each character makes their own decision on whether they buy into her act or not (maybe supported by a high or low Sense Motive skill), and RPs however seems most appropriate for their character. If you really want me to make a Bluff check about something, just ask!
Distracted by her verbal discourse with Tahline, Lyra took another blow from the hobgoblin attacking her. I'm not going to make any friends with those two. Probably best to keep my distance. The Bear. She was a woman before. A druid?
Lyra heard the ruckus of the hobgoblin war party as they ganged up on the animal. Their noises were rough and bestial, but she could understand their grunts. They were tearing the dog up, and it sounded like they were quite excited and successful. This is going to hurt, but I have to make an ally somewhere. The bear is much more valuable than...those two.
Lyra slashed at the hobgoblin on her, and then she turned and ran, brushing past where the twins had exited their carriage. "Take care of this for me, would ya?"
she yelled to Tahline, as she circled the carriage the other way, coming to the aid of the dog. She jabbed her dagger into the back of the very first hobgoblin she came across. It was so focused on the animal that it never saw her coming. "Leave that poor animal alone,"
she cried out passionately, and loud enough for the nearby bear to clearly hear.
There was a terrible pain in her side, however, as she lunged forward; the awful wound she'd received earlier began to bleed profusely. It was enough to distract what should have been a lethal blow, turning her strike into a more trivial attack. I really hope this gets the bear's attention
, she thought, as the hobgoblins suddenly became aware of Lyra again.
