Your Humble Narrator

For the purpose of not having to retcon a whole bunch of stuff, lets pretend the Sound Burst was a spell-like, and i'll compensate for it in other ways.

Sorry, post above was telling. Only just realised from looking at Ambroze's sheet that the naturalist +1 bonus to saves doesn't apply to creature's spells just abilities (which makes sense). So if that sound burst was a spell not a spell like ability I think I failed the save.

Hmmmm... Never thought about it that way before, but you're right. Which makes sense, as otherwise Naturalist would definitely be stronger than Inspire Courage - even without the bonus to damage rolls. Something to remember for the future.


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

OK more than fine by me.

Wondered for a second if spell casting was an exceptional ability but its not.

And I think she gets no AOO from Marcus' move by RAW as she doesn't threaten while casting but I'll double check. No difference in any event.

Edit: Deleted my IC post.

Just as an FYI, I'm travelling on business this week. I'll be posting in the evening instead of during the day. I am cheering for the team!! Gooooooo team!!


Thinks idly about the worst case scenario... maybe 1d3 constrictor snakes from a summoner monster IV? Oooh ooh 1d3 fiendish sharks in the blood trough :)


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

Hows Gwen going with the lifelink?

Marcus has lost 11hp total (just lost 5) and Chi 17hp (just lost 11hp). Add on the 6 hp Gwen lost from the sound burst.

Greatly appreciate the boost but don't want her to die :)


I'm with Marcus on that, please drop the life line before you drop...Chi is more than happy to lie down for the team, she can't do much else....


Your Humble Narrator

No spells memorised left? Guidance on the meleers and hope for the best, perhaps?

If i'm honest I quite enjoy watching spellcasters struggle in my games. I get very tired of the 'casters rule fighters drool' b%@&+&@s I see thrown around far too much. Yes in a few levels the casters really come into their own but a well played martial can keep pace.

I think caster supremacy is down to poor DMing much of the time (in PF, my views in 3.5 were a bit different).

I cast Cure Light Wounds on her in Round Two for 9 hp healed.


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

Enlarge might be hard to get off if she keeps moving around.

Bag (if Chi has?) or javelin might be an option?


Female Elf Witch 3 (favoured) / Rogue 2 HPs 19/27

Chi doesn't fire/throw into melee particularly well, doesn't have precise shot, so of the options tanglefoot bag would be best, at least it might stop her from bouncing around so much at the least. With Chi invis, she doesn't loose invis whilst casting enlarge...so it would make the most of the spel and leave her to be able to get the rogue sneak attack after. She would also be able to cast little support spells like resistance on people.

So?


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

Totally up to you. I just figure it looks like shes trying to shred the squishies rather than fight Marcus and Tun'ada toe to toe. Enlarge would be good but I was just saying I'm not sure if the recipient will be in one place long enough for you to successfully cast it. I reckon she'll go for Gwen this turn and Marcus will have to chase her.


Your Humble Narrator

Chi's action to finish up before Yarzoth :).


Female Human Oracle 4

Life link update coming. In fact, I just had it written, but closed the window like a dumbass. Long story short: (cue Pearl Jam) I, ohhhh I'm still Alive, yeah...


Female Human Oracle 4

Note: I may die this round (emphasis on MAY, far more likely that I get KO'ed), but if I do, it's OK. Counteracting the attack penalty from the Prayer spell with a Bless spell of my own was thematically the correct thing for Gwen to do, even if a CMW on herself would have been more prudent, strictly speaking.


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

All good. Just conscious that life link for all its healy goodness greatly enhances Gwen's risk of ... well death.


Your Humble Narrator

4HP! Living dangerously Gwenyth...


Female Human Oracle 4

The links are dropped now, and hey! It's the ultimate fight against the big bad evil guy! Should I not be living on the edge?! LOL


Female Elf Witch 3 (favoured) / Rogue 2 HPs 19/27

I assume that if Chi charges up her enlarge spell, she can touch Marcus at the start of next round, so he doesn't have to stay where he is currently. Cos Chi gets a cast as a standard action, then a move action, so can Chi move with Marcus to keep him in touch range? Otherwise, whatever she does, it'll take 2 rounds to cast...


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

Its got a close range so it will go off at the start of the round after you cast it?


Your Humble Narrator

Don't worry Gwen, the channel energy deities hate everyone. I thought you'd drop for sure, whereas you actually have a chance to stay concious.


Female Elf Witch 3 (favoured) / Rogue 2 HPs 19/27

I'm thinking it will enlarge Tun'ada, as it gives him more chance of increasing his damage. And he gets 3 attacks, rather than Marcus' one. Unless you realy think Marcus should have it.


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

Not a problem.

*Crosses fingers for Gwen's save.*


Your Humble Narrator

I feel the need to point out that Grace only lasts one round ;). But i'll keep Marcus' action anyway...


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

Ah funny. Ah well Marcus doesn't know that and would have done the same thing not knowing the roll was a fail.


Your Humble Narrator

Epic fail, sadly. She is one bad ass boss as written, and she received some boosts for there being six of you (not a +50% XP boost as I usually do, she was very powerful already so I just tweaked her in a few ways).


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

Sorry guys. Epic fail indeed. I'm in a screaming hurry getting ready for holidays and didn't want to interrupt the fight. I should have taken more care thinking about things.


Female Elf Witch 3 (favoured) / Rogue 2 HPs 19/27

No sweat Marcus none of us are perfect...and that is especially true of Chi's playing..just hope we make it through this...

Hope you have a great holiday

@ Tal - I don't fear character death either, but I'm here to tell you that there's no earthly way I roll on the low side of the 2d6 curve in real life as much as I do on this board. I'm pretty convinced that there's something wrong with their randomizer.

Most results should be in the 5-9 range, but I'm constantly rolling 2's and 3's, and almost never 11's anad 12's. It's discouraging.


Male Human Fighter 5 50/50 hp 4hp nonlethal

This is not designed to make you feel better but the cleric in my LOF game is now 5th and I think they've only rolled worse than average for channels once.

Testing Theory:

2d6 ⇒ (6, 3) = 9
2d6 ⇒ (4, 6) = 10
2d6 ⇒ (1, 5) = 6
2d6 ⇒ (5, 2) = 7
2d6 ⇒ (4, 6) = 10
2d6 ⇒ (4, 5) = 9
2d6 ⇒ (5, 3) = 8
2d6 ⇒ (1, 4) = 5
2d6 ⇒ (6, 6) = 12
2d6 ⇒ (1, 3) = 4
2d6 ⇒ (4, 3) = 7
2d6 ⇒ (6, 2) = 8
2d6 ⇒ (5, 3) = 8
2d6 ⇒ (5, 3) = 8
2d6 ⇒ (1, 2) = 3
2d6 ⇒ (6, 3) = 9

Theoretical average should be 7, the average of those rolls was 7.6875.

Hmmm...maybe it just doesn't like you ;)

Though I do hear ya, it does seem like the die generator has it in for certain characters for certain rolls.

Yeah but in that one, Khalid has the dice-funk on attack rolls...


Female Elf Witch 3 (favoured) / Rogue 2 HPs 19/27

Ambroze got any magic wands or stuff I can try, like the vampiric touch one, just wanna try anything, preferably with a touch attack. Just grasping at straws here.


Male Gnome Bard (Archivist) 5

Yes I do have the Vampiric Touch wand - just need to retrieve it from my pack...


Male Gnome Bard (Archivist) 5

Starting to get nervous now...


Your Humble Narrator

Bwahahahahahaha...


Female Elf Witch 3 (favoured) / Rogue 2 HPs 19/27

I don't have a good feeling about this ...


Male Gnome Bard (Archivist) 5

I for one welcome our new serpentfolk overlords!


Your Humble Narrator

Excellent, Ambroze. Now instead of being made into an undead for eternity like the others, you get to be Yarzoth's b~*%~.


Female Human Oracle 4

Last one more round, please, Tun'ada. A CMW shall be your reward.

This poison, though - yowza.


Your Humble Narrator

I was wondering why you don't 5 foot and channel, are you fed up of the channel energy playing tricks with you? :)

Chi has the javelin of lightning no? Should deal some damage unless she has evasion and with Tunáda large hopefully she can get an angle which misses everyone else.

Guys I'm sorry about the timing but I'm shortly catching a plane and suspect I'll have patchy if at all access til I get back on the 11th. Maybe better than I think but pls bot Marcus as necessary.

More like I cannot be in melee since I am completely unarmed and have 9hp, and only one of my companions is actually low on hp other than me, honestly.

But yes, I have also concluded that channeling is an inconsistent method of in-combat healing.


Female Elf Witch 3 (favoured) / Rogue 2 HPs 19/27

Time to administer the antitoxin to Marcus I think....

....I have taken some from the party treasure in my backpack, Ambroze and Marcus also have some too I think...


Female Human Oracle 4

You mistake me, AK! I very much did enjoy it! I just figured she was going to scamper away and drain a cure potion again, which - while appropriate - might have added another real-time week to the combat, that's all.

I very, VERY much enjoy this game, you know that :-)

Thanks :).

She did have another cure potion (and prepared cure potions) but she noted to her dismay that she took more damage after drinking one than she healed... If she had pulled off the withdraw action though, the combat would have ended and you would have had to fight her again after she healed (i'm not saying how as its still relevant to this room).


Female Elf Witch 3 (favoured) / Rogue 2 HPs 19/27

I still thought we'd have some dead, sounded very close with Tun'ada and Marcus both suffering. I've come to the conclusion, we couldn't have done it if we didn't work together on it. If we had had time to prepare a little, I think we'd have finished her sooner. On the bright side, we've still gotta get outta here!!!

Nice fight AK ... love this game ... hope you'll take us through the next Chapter too, as this one is running to its end now. And we might get off this ****** island. ... :)

Yu did say this was the Big Bad Evil Girl at the end of the adventure...crosses fingers.

Marcus still isn't out of the woods entirely. He's got to beat off that poison before he gets to Str 0.

Won't be a problem. The poison only lasts for 6 rounds at 1d2/round. Marcus has an 18 STR, so the worst off he could be is a 6.


Male Gnome Bard (Archivist) 5

I've got two Antitoxins and four Potions of Lesser Restoration if anyone needs them.
