Yikes, that sounds scary! I'm glad you managed to secure your home.

Get us started again whenever you're ready.

Always good to not lose your house, though not so good to be close to losing it.

Good to go on the 18th.

Hate to say it, but think we should withdraw from this conflict... it doesn't sound like they are going to pursue (or all of them at any rate) and we are pretty beaten up to take them on with them having terrain advantage.

My vote would be to get out, make improvised firebombs, then burn them out.

As for the wounded guy within... well... he probably was going to die anyway, sad to say.

Thoughts?

Davian agrees :P

The one thing is that there's a non-dead human inside, who might be rescuable.

We could look for larger friendly forces nearby, and see if we can draw the orcs out and into the spears of those forces.


M Human |16/20 HP|20 AC | 11 Touch AC| 19 FF AC| +1 Init | +5/+1/+1 Saves | +5 Perception | +5 Sense Motive|1/1 Challenge|

That is not a bad plan, but Cromwin will drop to 0 on his turn. Unless healed, he can't really effectively retreat.


M Half-Orc Wizard (Air Elementalist) 1 | AC 16 | HP 15/15 | F +1 R +2 W +2 | Init +2 | Perc +3, Sens. Mot. +1 | Familiar: Ferria, Raven

I think you can take the Withdraw action while at 0 hp; attacking will drop you below 0, but Withdraw won't.

Withdraw to Davian, who could have SWORN he posted already when he posted yes to Maurie, but apparently it didn't post, and he'll heal you xD


No longer active, GM left

I agree with the withdrawal, Grok's said what he thinks is the best withdrawal we can make. Not sure if it's actually the completely correct method, though.

Just a note on positions, Cromwin and Brin are flanking one of the half-orcs. So Cromwin can go down with a flourish... If I don't hear from Brin, then he will attack the half-orc in front of him ....

Davian remember you are a minimum of 1 round away in your search for fire.

Withdraw is a full round action, which means Cromwin cannot do a full round action.... Staggered is what happens on 0 hit points... Bleed damage is taken at the start of the round ....

PRD wrote:


Staggered
Staggered: A staggered creature may take a single move action or standard action each round (but not both, nor can he take full-round actions). A staggered creature can still take free, swift and immediate actions. A creature with nonlethal damage exactly equal to its current hit points gains the staggered condition.

Anything other than a 5ft step would allow an Attack of Opportunity ...

Hope this helps Cromwin .. or at least makes it clearer where he might fall..... and Cromwin's AC would not benefit from Total Defence.

Realized I miswrote on my move action, given 'withdraw' is a technical term. Meant I use my normal move action's worth of movement to move back toward Norrik after performing the trip attempt on the guy I was previously across from. New position should be updated on the map.

No worries...

I was more getting to Cromwin's 'withdraw' action ....

I will wait for Cromwin's post .... as it's a bit crucial for him ....

GM: there is a rule that allows withdrawing as only a standard action:

Quote:


Restricted Withdraw: If you are limited to taking only a standard action each round you can withdraw as a standard action. In this case, you may move up to your speed.

That's under "Withdraw" on p. 188 of the CRB. If you're not using that rule, then that's your perogative. But, if you were trying to go with RAW, he does have the option to withdraw.

I'd go ahead and bot. We're not getting anywhere by waiting, and if you bot, then in the future the people botted will most likely be more enthusiastic.

Giving Norrick til tomorrow morning UK time, to see if he wants any particular action.

I can't wait to find this damn stick. LOL.


No longer active, GM left

I think you may be confusing people's names, Norrick. The barkeep is Clarenston and the member of our party is Cromwin.


M Half-Orc Wizard (Air Elementalist) 1 | AC 16 | HP 15/15 | F +1 R +2 W +2 | Init +2 | Perc +3, Sens. Mot. +1 | Familiar: Ferria, Raven

I think I got it right-- Norrik was checking on the barkeep who was inside the place where the combat happened. He's also looking to see if the enemy combatants have healing potions, as we need to get Cromwin back up. (Cromwin is down, isn't he?)

Heh. When I first read that, I thought it was some kind of exotic weapon.

Yeah, it seems like you've got the people and their locations correct, but I think you're using the names incorrectly.

Unless anyone wants the greataxes, or has other objections, I'll add the axes and gold to my inventory to worry about later.

Will post tonight when I get back.

Heh, no worries. Next weekend will be at sister-in-law's college graduation. The motel has wifi, but might not have the same opportunities to post. Will remind you guys when we get closer.

I'm ready to move forward. I'd probably have noticed that dog, so that's the first thing to investigate, and we've got a few loose ends that I'm not sure we want to prioritize right now. It's a small town, not everyone's been brought to bear, the few of us arriving at the scene could have a significant effect on the battle, especially if we can kill their leader.

Right now I think the two things we'd like to investigate are the possibility of a ladder or other entrance into the upper levels of the town that has not been dealt with and the shadowy figure who we saw from the tower. I vote we ignore the shadow and keep an eye out for the secondary entrance as we move through the houses to the hopespring.

Do people think we should be checking every house and looking to gather survivors/chase off looters or going full speed ahead?

The way I see it, if there are no enemies in the houses, then they are probably evacuated since the town would have a procedure for surprise attacks. But if there are any people who stayed behind we can gather them up with the cleric we left at the barricade. If there are enemies in the houses, then either they are less numerous than us, in which case we want to attack them, or they are more numerous than us, in which case we need to know about them or they might follow us and kill us.

Is anybody keeping track of the stuff we've picked up but haven't passed out to individuals yet?


No longer active, GM left

I've picked up the gold and greataxes, so in that sense the answer is yes.

Maurie has taken nothing but one of the healing tonics.

As I said earlier I will be on the road this weekend starting today. My sister-in-law is graduating from college and my wife and I are attending. The motel has wifi, but I probably won't be in it much... so expect lower than average posting from me until Monday.

I am sorry for my absence. Business has been booming, and with the boss out and people calling off, I've had to unexpectantly cover at least 30 hours this week. I'm copying and pasting this to all my games- I apologize. With call offs, I had no ahead of time knowledge.

Things should be straight by Monday hopefully.

Sorry Guys ... been a busy week .... being an ol' procedural kinda guy, getting to grips with a framework for selenium auto testing is doing my head in ... If you know what that means ... then please send headache tablets....

And at home, my wife has been going through a tough patch too, which means I'm having to spend the rest of the time keeping the house going.

However, I am not gone ... just being a bad GM ...

Just had a note from Davian, he's having to leave the game, his life has got a lot more busy with work etc.

OK, so onwards and upwards ....
