Kondor whispers to Tillak - "What happened while I've been out? When was the last you saw Gundrabu or that viking woman? I'll track them from this campsite. That's three people, so unless there's someone else who's joined us, that could be three beastmen. If it is, our cleric (and whoever, so long as she doesn't hit me in the face for no reason) will need our help. If it isn't... well, I'm ready for some answers. Let's go, but quietly."

Quietly, Kondor uses his hunter's skills and his barbarian's instincts to follow the trail of the cleric and others - hoping that it is they who are the trio, not some new threat.

Kondor grins. "Aye, let's go see. Perhaps this valkyrie can explain herself - or give a reason to intrude upon our band's misfortunate journey, like a campsite or hunter's cabin so we can get a proper night's rest! Or shears for this beard, or boots for these Kimmerian feet."

Kondor heads down to find Gundrabu, hopefully with Tillak at his side.

I mean, sure, but also nah: this game ain't fer people who like it easy!!! This is a game for people who walk ten miles to and from the game, uphill both trips, in five feet of snow - pausing only to fight and eat polar bears attacking en route!
Chuck Norris played this game, and quit because he couldn't take it!

But yeah, eventually I could use a full heal. It's been months and I miss being able to fight stuff without risking instant death.

Kondor looks for Gundrabu.

ooc: Did Kondor get any more hit points, or is he just at 2hp now?

Kondor looks around the campsite.

"So... where is everyone? Did the dragon get Gundrabu?"

Kondor jerks awake instinctively reaching for his sword. Disoriented, the throb in his swollen jaw reminds him of recent events. Night has come. A small fire crackles in a makeshift pit, its wispy smoke fills his lungs.
Tillak sits beside him chewing on a piece of rawhide. 

Kondor jerks awake, drawing his sword in an adrenaline rush - then stopping, as he sees Tillak offering him food.

"Where is she?" Kondor stuffs the food into his mouth, then continues after swallowing. "Some... arse-faced viking woman with a spear, snuck up behind me while I was watching the dragon. Out of nowhere, spear to my face, then struck me upside the head when I turned around. What in the alien-winds-of-the-void was the point?! Reminds me of that idiot thief, Malik. Yikes! Look out for her, Tillak, she's trouble."

ooc: I think Sigrun was the first to cross the river, thus getting the XP, not that it's the first XP Sigrun has ever gotten. Does that work?

Kondor isn't a bleeding boy, so are we talking about a different character?

Tillak shakes Kondor again, trying to wake him.

It's no use - he's deep in slumber - as Tillak himself wishes he were, but

Kondor continues sleeping and healing.

Is Kondor conscious?

No, he was knocked good and senseless.
He has recovered 1 hp since they moved him to the campsite.

Right, back I go!  *zzzzZZZZZzzzzzz

If Kondor is unkonscious, he will hopefully rest refreshed.

Kondor rolls his eye. "Boreas' blue bollox, I've had enough of this! You can kill - just kill me now - but I've not slept in years yet been roasted alive, beaten, held in stasis by a damned sorcerer for years, watched friends murdered and reanimated by demons as undead; or captured and eaten by cannibals; drowned in a river of feces, and chased by a dragon - and I'd rather die than be talked down to. You could have said literally nothing if you wanted to keep me quiet - but you decide to hold me at spearpoint, waste my time with taking my sword off, and now you want me to be quiet because the dragon might hear me... like I wasn't being quiet before you showed up with your dumb spear!"

The barbarian moves his chin up so the huntress can just kill him in one easy strike, and starts to buckle his belt back up - whether she murders him or not.

"Well? Did the dragon hear me? I would WELCOME a dragon eating me to the day I've been having. Unless you're a well-cooked meal and a very comfortable hammock, I have nothing to say to you!"

ooc:  lol. Nothing personal, but understand Kondor has had a TERRIBLE few days. He's done. No F's given.

OOC: Hate to throw this in there but I will be out of pocket for the next 3to 4 days.

OOC:  Out of pocket?  Like broke, or away from the game? If you're going to be gone for several days, Kondor is therefore stuck in this position until your return. GM doesn't move for absent players, respecting player agency (which is a respect for consent, which is good). That means, however, that we'll be a bit stuck until you're back.

Also:  Welcome @Crawdad !!!  Good to have a new player.

Kondor is amazed at the lizard's patience and ponders the young barbarian's methods to apparently tame this ferocious beast. There is a sudden musk on the air and his Alertness warns him of impending Ambush! He spins on his haunch to face the tip of the short spear inches from his face.
She towers over him, her features a hard beauty. Her common tongue laced with Viking lilt,
"Careful. Make no sound or any sudden move or this spear goes through your head and out your mouth.  With the fingers of one hand, take each weapon you have and slowly toss them away."

ooc: don't worry, I thought - there's nothing going on in the game until Votin fights that dragon. Just chill out with the new job and watch squid game for a few days. You'll be fine!

IC:  Kondor faces the spear-wielding warrior woman and looks her in the eye as she speaks.  He ignores the spear, and seems more irritated than anything else. His body is bruised, his face battered, and he looks as though recently burned or held too close to the fire, matched by the smell of smoke on him. Kondor says nothing, untying the buckle of his sheath and letting his sword fall off his shoulder to the sand behind him.

That done he holds his hands out with an irked shrug and frown as if asking if the newcomer was happy now.

Kondor waits, feeling bad about not being able to help, but will study the dragon's movement so he can avenge this stranger later on.

Kondor is content to watch what's happening, monitoring the dragon in case it comes back his way.

Kondor starts to climb the ridge, and find a spot to hide in the brush at the top. If he can spot Gundrabu and Tillak, he will - but his primary concern is the whatever the Dragon is up to. 

Kondor can feel his body's exhaustion, the bludgeoning and burns from the beast men, and is none too pleased that he can't dive into battle immediately - but he watches the dragon now, looking for weaknesses and planning how to fight it later.

As much as was possible. Sadly.
