How fast does fire spread along the web?


Dungeon Master

Folks, my Imageshack account, which hosts all of the images I send to you, has just about reached five hundred images. I have not erased any of them, so the battlemat images from the entire thread still work. However, I will need to upgrade my account (pay money) to be able to hold more. Should I upgrade, start a new account with a new email, or should I simply erase some of the old images?


Not in use

For the web fire - the PRD states Any fire can set the webs alight and burn away one 5-foot square in 1 round. - which really only says that the web in the burning square would be effectively gone in 1 round. But I'd think it's reasonable to think that the fire would essentially advance at a 5ft move speed across the web.

As for the images - I'd think removing some would be the easiest solution. You could always just back them up locally just in case they were needed again?

I don't see nay reason to keep all the old battlemats. Just a couple key images (plot-worthy aps, stuff like that), but definitely I say ditch the old battlemats.


Dungeon Master

Mantooth has Great Cleave. Do you really think he is unable to cleave if he does it as a full round action, but he can if he does it as a standard action? I would have thought that it would have been fine as long as you make only one additional attack per creature. Great Cleave looks like he could keep on attacking as long as he has creatures within his arms length.


Not in use

Unfortunately RAW means that if he uses Great Cleave, that takes up a full standard action.

As full attacking with iteratives if a full-round action, it cannot be combined. The haste attack similarly triggers off a full attack, so cannot be combined with a cleave.

So RAW - no, cannot combine Great Cleave with a full attack.

This is similar to combat maneuvers. Some, like disarm and sunder, replace an attack - while others, like grapple and overrun, take a standard action to perform.


Dungeon Master

Mark,

can you clarify what RAW stands for? This is certainly not the first time that I have heard that mentioned.

RAW - Rules as Written - ie. a strict interpretation of what the written rule is

RAI - Rules as Intended - ie. while it may not be explicitly stated, it is in the spirit of how the rule is 'meant' to work.

Essentially if there are 3 or more enemies next to Mantooth, then the Great Cleave will probably be more affective as all the attacks would be at full BAB. On the other hand, if the first misses you do not get any more chances. Also, with a Full Attack, all the attacks can be aimed at a single enemy.

Really, Cleave is good with lots of annoying little enemies, full attack is usually better - especially with haste - against a few big monsters.

Alright, that makes sense. I will now know to pick one when the chance arises again.

hehehe

Our group of friends had a dude by the name of Jeff Park. He was the Charlie Brown of the group; overweight, not too bright, fairly unattractive, rude crude and just kinda gross. He also was a twit, so he really did at least partially deserve the teasing he got from the group (which he did, in fact, choose to hang out with). AS an example of what kind of guy we're talking about, his name in reverse is "Ffej Krap" and it's entirely fitting.

Anywya, in Jr. High he had a crush on some girl, I forgot her name. She wanted NOTHING repeat NOTHING to do with him, as you might guess. Well there was a get-together at someone's house, and he used is suave moves to ingrtiate himself to her. that is, he physiclly chased her around the house, and finally got her, pinned her to the ground, grabbed a dirty sweat-sock that he found on the floor, shoved it in her fac,e and yelled "SMELL THE SOCK, B1THC!!"

yes he did. With an overnight bag. Without telling us he was coming. I honestly thought I was going to die when he got in the top bunk and I was in the bottom.


Dungeon Master

My family and I are visiting a friend at her camp up in Maine tomorrow. I will be without Internet for a day, but I will be back on Wednesday night. I will be able to update then.


Male Human Paladin 9 (HP:68/102, AC: 28, Touch: 16; +10 Fort, +6 Reflex, +11 Will)

Is this cool? Dungeon a Day


Dungeon Master

I like that it's pathfinder! I've never seen this before!


Dungeon Master

Well, I'm off doing a 25 miles bike tour today to help raise money for the Vermont Food Bank. I won't be home until tonight. Have a great day, folks!

have a great trip--hope you don't get rained on too bad (it's raining here in Southern NH)


Dungeon Master

I'm back. We had a great time! We took a nice leisurely pace and finished in 2 hours 11 minutes. However, yes, the last hour of the tour it rained. We had a good time, but I am glad to be home and get a hot shower. Now we are ordering out chinese. Should be a fun night!


Dungeon Master

So tomorrow night we are going to Gillette Stadium to see the New England Revolution. I've never seen a professional soccer team in this country. It should be a fun time.


Male Gnome Sorcerer/9 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

Nice - I was hoping to take the kids to see the Chicago Fire this year, but never got there.


Dungeon Master

Where's Mantooth and Thordak? They are leaving me in suspense.


Male Human Paladin 9 (HP:68/102, AC: 28, Touch: 16; +10 Fort, +6 Reflex, +11 Will)

As a reminder Mantooth took "Suspense Leaver" as his first bonus feat and as a result takes a -2 on posting frequency rolls.

Sorry, Ill post tonight, but I have to hit the road!


Dungeon Master

No problem, Thordak. It looks like Mantooth helped you out.

Well, I had a blast at the Revolution game last night. It was a very suspenseful game and we had great seats. Unfortunately, they lost to Montreal. 1 - 0. It was a shame, because they really dominated most of the game. Bad luck I guess. Well I got home last night around 1:30 am. Man was I tired. I slept in until 10 this morning.


Dungeon Master

Thordak, when are getting home? If you can make it, I'm giving a concert Thursday night at 7 pm. It will be at the same location as first night. I hope to be playing my electric for a good part of it!


Male Human Paladin 9 (HP:68/102, AC: 28, Touch: 16; +10 Fort, +6 Reflex, +11 Will)

Have you been practicing with those settings? When is the Electrified LP coming out?


Dungeon Master

I will have a good variety of different tones to share in the arrangements, but the LP is still in the progress. I think I am starting to find my sound. It helps in that I just purchased a 200 watt tower amplifier! :-)

So, not only are you finding your sound, but so are your neighbors, their neighbors, and the deaf guy in the next town.


Male Human Paladin 9 (HP:68/102, AC: 28, Touch: 16; +10 Fort, +6 Reflex, +11 Will)

I hope the tower is for performances, unless you are indeed trying to blow away L&L. Did you ever find headphones to practice with?

Last time I played with DMHW, he had to chase off several moose which were responding to what they thought were mating calls.


Dungeon Master

I had an awesome gig last night down in Concord. Sorry you missed it , Bofus. I loved the tower amp. That was my first performance with it. Talking with a few of the audience members after the performance, they said there was a little too much bass. Perhaps it was all of the furniture shaking that made them say that! :-)

Well, I have another big concert tonight. I am really looking forward to it. I also like the fact that I won't have a two hour drive afterwards. Last night I didn't get home until 1 o'clock in the morning.

Male Gnome Sorcerer/9 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

I would be there, but that 1000 mile drive each way really cuts into work and sleep on either end.


Dungeon Master

Well, I had a great audience for my second concert! I think I converted a few people to the electric harp!

Yesterday I went for a great hike up to Zeacliff! I think we may hike again today.


Male Gnome Sorcerer/9 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

Beautiful weather here, might try to get some work done outside. Closest hikes are about 1000 miles from here, so tough to do on the spur of the moment. Normally we would have been in NH this week, but because of trips earlier in the year, cannot get the time.

I've been up Zeacliff a long itme ago. Cool!

the fam is goign up to Loon Mt tomorrow (Sunday) through Monday for a bit of a trip.


Dungeon Master

That sounds great. I will be there for the New Hampshire Highland Games on Sept. 21, 22, and 23rd. Are you staying up at the Mountain Club? Well, enjoy your time off!

No posts for me until Monday evening at the earliest. :-)


Dungeon Master

No problem, Bofus. Have a great time!


Dungeon Master

Well, my friends, I should not complain, but I have to go back to work on Thursday. I hope it does not slow down the campaign, but work does have an awful way of eating up a lot of my time. :-(


Male Gnome Sorcerer/9 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

You are fairly frugal, you should not have to work. Of course your spouse and child might be a little annoyed.


Male Human Paladin 9 (HP:68/102, AC: 28, Touch: 16; +10 Fort, +6 Reflex, +11 Will)

Just give them the escalator problem on the first day. You will be set for the rest of the year.


Dungeon Master

Mantooth, did I give you that problem back in the days of algebra with me? Do the rest of you know that problem? It's a real doozie!

Jess walked up an elevator at a brisk rate taking 54 steps during the trip to the top. Jess returned to the bottom to walk up again this time taking steps two thirds as often as on the first trip, taking 40 steps in all. How many steps can be seen on the visible part of the escalator?


Male Gnome Sorcerer/9 - (HP: 46/46 - AC19;FF16;T17 - F+5;R+6;W+7 - Init+9 - Per+11)

I am really tired and have not done this in 30 years, but I think that there are 82 steps - which is one hell of a long escalator.

Took me 30, maybe 45 minutes total. Did most of it in my head as I was too lazy to get a pencil.


Dungeon Master

Solution to Escalator Problem:

Suppose that the escalator has S steps. The assumption which I make is that the escalator ascends at the rate of 1 step per second, so that it takes S seconds for one step to travel from the bottom to the top.

Suppose that Jess walks up the escalator at the rate of n steps per second.

Then the combined speed of ascent is (n + 1) steps /sec

So Jess will reach the top in S / (n + 1) sec.

Now, in { S / (n + 1) } sec, the escalator rises S / (n + 1) steps.

And in {S / (n + 1) } sec, Jess takes n x S / (n + 1) steps.

And we are given that n x S / (n + 1) = 54 ..... ..... ..... ..... (A)
-------------- --------------- -------------------- -----------------------

Now, if Jess walks at only ⅔ n steps per sec,

The combined speed of ascent is (⅔ n + 1) steps/sec

So Jess now reaches the top in { S / (⅔ n + 1) } sec

Re-arranging this a little, time to reach top = { 3S / (2n + 3) } sec.

In 3S / (2n + 3) sec, escalator rises 3S / (2n + 3) steps

And Jess takes (⅔ n) (3S / (2n + 3) ) steps, which = 6Sn / 3 (2n + 3) steps.

We are told that 6Sn / 3 (2n + 3) = 40 ..... ..... ..... ..... (B)

From equation (A) above, we get Sn = 54 (n + 1)

From (B) we get 6Sn = 40 (2n + 3) 3, or Sn = 20 (2n + 3)

If we equate these two expressions for Sn, we get

54 (n + 1) = 20 (2n + 3)

54n + 54 = 40n + 60

(54 - 40)n = 60 - 54

14n = 6

Therefore n = 3 / 7

And substituting in Sn = 54 (n + 1)

S (3 / 7) = 54 ( 3 / 7 + 1)

S (3 / 7) = 54 x 10 / 7

3S = 540

Therefore S = 180

The escalator has 180 steps.

Well, I just played harp for a memorial for a dear friend of the family. Tirion, I saw your folks there and had a nice visit with them. They seem really good!
