The binds are just too tight, like wire than twine!

One of the screaming beastmen gets close to Gundrabu, but - wailing  about his eyes  - drops his torch. The tinders beneath Tillak begin to ignite.

Kondor hears metal weapons leave sheaths behind him.

plus...
[Tillak roll save vs sorcery.]

Tillak retains his sight! Behind him the loud snap and crackle of FIRE!

If Kondor can't snap the ropes, he's going to heave up on the pole the ropes are tied to - bouncing off the posts holding him above the kindling!

ooc: strength check?

Kondor can give it a try.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Strength d6: 5!  But as I'm 18Str that's a success

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

OOC: Can I attempt to break my bonds? (I assume that I'm tied as well.)

Sully struggles and finds he is tied to a spit just as tightly as Gundrabu before him.
The smell of burning wood immediately fills his nostrils, and the crackle of nearby fire floods his ears!

[Tillak can try to break his bonds. EXT FEAT OF STR]

Kondor's sinews strain beneath the mummifying twines and he feels the slightest stretch...but not instant freedom.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Gundrabu cries out, but not so loudly (he hopes) that everyone about can hear. “Who is that at my bonds? Are ye friend or foe to me?”

There is no answer or loosening of his binds, but the clatter of sticks and stones begins to erupt as does the flames beneath the 3 hapless adventurers!

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Begging the Kraken, Gundrabu makes a go at shaking his body side to side, attempting to upset the spit, even if it means falling into the flames.

Test of Strengthening: D6 - 5

Extraordinary Test of Strength: D100 - 70

Nope.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Stray rocks begin to rain down from the ridge line behind Kondor. Beastmen begin to move around as chaos erupts!

Flames lick in the space between you.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

War-barks of rage echo through the air as a force of savage beastmen break over the ridge, raining stones, clubs, and bones, down on the svelt beastmen who have captured the adventurers!

Wails of bloody carnage erupt as the melee clashes all around the helpless wayfarers!

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Tillak attempts to look over his shoulder to the commotion behind him. Is he able to see what's happening behind him?

Tillak twists his neck and from the corner of his eye he can see lush wooded mountains  in the distance, a stream about 30 yards away, a dozen dressed beastmen running away toward the stream. and flames flickering on tinder ignited just underneath him!!!

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

OOC: I forgot what I'm supposed to roll for a strength feat. Am I able to make another attempt to break my bonds?

[d%.  Tillak can struggle as much as he chooses, though I add fatigue and/or desperation bonuses as necessary.]
