Male Human Aegis 1

Climb:1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21

Phillip makes his way down easily.

Well then, let's cool down.

Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

Adriano casts guidance to get a plus 1, if i fall doom on you, lol

climb 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5


Male Human Aegis 1

0/5 now, is it? You could've taken 10, as the rope reduced the DC to 10.

Female Human Ranger 2D10

Sasha saw Adriano falter at the rope. She dove forward to catch the cleric, grabbing him with one hand and the rope with the other. Sasha dug in her heels to slow their descent.

Acrobatics check: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (20) + 3 = 23

Climb (Aid Another): 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (16) + 1 = 17 (+2 to Adriano's 5)

Climb: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (12) + 1 = 13

Together the pair stumbled down the cliff, landing hard at the bottom next to Ashana. Sasha let Adriano go and fussed at him, saying "One, get gloves. Two, watch your step!" She stumbled, walking off the impact.

(Couldn't resist when I saw the natural 20!)

Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

hmmm, Ring of Feather Fall or Being rescued by an attractive redhead, Tough Choice.

Adriano looks at the rope wondering if the gods are trying to tell him something, then he looks at Sasha and smiles "I will, Thank you, I am beginning to think you might be my guardian angel." Looking at her leg where she landed "Are you hurt?"

Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Ashana watches as Andriano once again falls off the cliff to be saved by Sasha. She chuckles to herself and starts trying to unhook her grappling hook to collect the rope again. She gives it a few quick tugs but can't get it to come free.

"Little help please..."

Strength check to retrieve hook:1d20 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6

Female Human Ranger 2D10

"M'fine, and I'm no angel." Sasha mumbled, still walking in a circle. At Ashana's behest, she helped the black-furred catwoman wiggle the rope upwards.

Strength check: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (15) + 1 = 16 (I think it might come loose with another DC 15+.)

Male Human Aegis 1

I'll try it.

Strength:1d20 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5

Phillip tries to pull it down, but doesn't have a tight enough grip, and ends up with a small friction burn.

Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

Adriano grabs the end of the rope and gives it a tug

1d20 ⇒ 18

nice why couldn't have rolled this on the climb check

Male Human Gamemaster

(And the rope jiggles loose so Ashana can recover her grappling hook and rope. Moving on....)

Your explorer party, now at the beach level, can feel the ocean breeze quite readily. Walking West (I hope), you have only the subdued waves of the ocean lapping against the shoreline for distraction. Sasha is almost bubbly as she talks about how she can raise and tame the reptile-bird, or dimorphodon.

After almost two hours of walking, you hear a familiar cry.

(Perception checks, followed by initiative rolls. Those who make DC 15 on their Perception can act one round before everyone else. I will also need a marching order. Then I get to update a map and make an Excel spreadsheet for combat!)

Female Human Ranger 2D10

"And we can even tie a message to its' leg, once I train it to go to other people. So we could send-" Sasha paused in her non-stop talking, cocking her head to one side. "What was that?" she asked everyone, puzzled.

Perception check: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (2) + 6 = 8
Initiative: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (12) + 3 = 15

Male Human Aegis 1

Perception:1d20 ⇒ 15
Initiative:1d20 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9

I made a Perception check? Wow. If only I'd rolled better on the Initiative roll.

Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

Perception: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (6) + 7 = 13
Initiative: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5

the dice for Initiative must have thought I was climbing

Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Perception:1d20 + 4 ⇒ (4) + 4 = 8
Initiative:1d20 + 4 ⇒ (11) + 4 = 15

Male Human Gamemaster

for Phillip only:

With a high-pitched cry, a reptile-bird dove out of the sky, attacking the party. It looked like it came from the nearby cliff.

GM rolls:

As Ad Ph Sa 1d4 ⇒ 3
Attack: bite 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (8) + 3 = 11

A small red-black creature flew by Phillip, its' jaw scraping along the studded leather of his shoulder and collarbone. With powerful motions of its' arms, the bat-like flyer climbed back into the sky. The attacker made a large loop in the air, preparing for another attack. The reptile-bird made a second high-pitched cry against the intruders.

Dimorphodon initiative: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 3 = 5
Sasha: 15
Phillip: 9
Ashana: 15 (she has better initiative, Reflex, so Ashana goes before Sasha)
Adriano: 5 (reptile-bird has better initiative, so it goes before Adriano)

Since Phillip is the only person to make the Perception roll, he gets an AOO. Then its' top-of-the-round with Ashana.

Male Human Aegis 1

Actually, I can't, as I don't have a weapon out, unless I acted on the spoiler prior to it coming down and drew my rapier. Assuming that happened:
Attack:1d20 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6
Damage:1d6 + 4 ⇒ (4) + 4 = 8

Well, that's a bunch of crap. When it comes to his initiative, Phillip will (swift action) bring up his astral skin, (move action) move to in front of the group in regards to the bird, drawing his rapier if he hadn't already, and (standard action) ready an action to strike it as it comes by.

Male Human Gamemaster

(Whoops! Forgot to post the new maps. Entirely my fault, sorry about that.)

Excel spreadsheet map of the beach attack
General map of exploration so you can see where you are

(And yes, Phillip can draw and attack. Too bad he missed.)

Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Ashana will ready an action for it to come into range of one of her daggers and then will throw it at the creature.

Throw dagger attack:1d20 + 4 ⇒ (9) + 4 = 131d4 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6

Female Human Ranger 2D10

Sasha gave a start, seeing the reptile-bird flash by them. "Ooooh!" she exclaimed. Sasha drew her rapier as Phillip grew his bluish-clear armor and Ashana drew her dagger. "Come out, come out, wherever you are!" the redhead shouted gleefully, almost giggling as she tried to track the dimorphodon in the air. "The adults are too old to train; I want a youngling. Or an egg." Sasha stated.

(Like Ashana, holding action until the dimorphodon flies close enough to attack.)

Masterwork rapier attack: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (3) + 6 = 9 (Bah.)

Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

Posting my move now just so I don't hold up combat. He is casting Guidance to give Ashana a +1 to hit on her next action.

Adriano prays to Sarenrae to guide Ashana's next strike at the lizard. "May the light of the Dawnflower guide your hand. He points his holy symbol at Ashana.

Male Human Aegis 1

Figured I might as well put these up for speed's sake.
Readied Attack: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (14) + 7 = 21
1d6 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10

AoO: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (19) + 7 = 26
1d6 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6
AoO Confirm: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (9) + 7 = 16
1d6 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 5 = 9

Male Human Gamemaster

The red-black, actually purple in places reptile-bird looped in for another attack.

GM rolls:

As Ad Ph Sa 1d4 ⇒ 2

Ashana 16
Sasha 15
Phillip 9
Dimorphodon 5
Adriano 4

Excel spreadsheet map of the beach attack

This time the dimorphodon chose to attack the wooden shield-carrying cleric. Ashana threw her dagger, and missed, as the reptile-bird flew close. Sasha also missed with her rapier. Phillip was much faster with his own rapier and (due to some great rolls) sliced & diced the dimorphodon before it could bite the cleric. The blond-headed man skewered the creature in mid-air, the reptile-bird crashing to the sand and ripping open its' entire left wing, dragging Phillip's rapier with it.

Before the party could congratulate each other, an outraged hiss from the cliff showed another reptile-bird taking off towards them. The cleric held his holy symbol out at the black-furred catgirl.

Round 2!

Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Ashana will look at the cleric and smiled in appreciation. She draws another dagger and prepairs another throw when the second creature gets ready to attack. As she waits she'll look at Sasha and shake her head "This is why I didn't want to do this...we're lucky that one died so quickly."

Dagger ranged attack:1d20 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 91d4 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 = 5

Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

You gain a +1 for guidance to hit so that would be a +5 wouldn't it

Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Drat you're roll should be a 10 then which probably still won't hit.

Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

Well it might maybe it is flat-footed, :D. We will try it again this next round as well.

Male Human Aegis 1

S@!#. Phillip 5-foot steps to N10 and picks up his rapier. Phillip readies an action to strike any enemy who comes close.

It seemed to work well for me last time, so I'll put them up again.
Readied Action: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (18) + 7 = 25
1d6 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 5 = 9

AoO: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (3) + 7 = 10
1d6 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6

Readied Action Confirm: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (12) + 7 = 19
1d6 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10

Hot Damn.

Male Human Gamemaster

The reptile-bird makes a dive towards

GM rolls:
As Ad Ph Sa 1d4 ⇒ 4

Sasha. Ashana flipped another dagger, but it again missed. Phillip moved in front of Adriano, and continued to show superb swordsmanship (confound it). His rapier easily met the attacking dimorphodon, dispatching the second reptile quicker than its' mate. The flyer screeched as it died, hitting the sandy ground.

(Ok, Phillip just raised the bar for everyone. Two crits in a row with more than decent damage. I'm going to have to go back to the drawing board on this one. It was far too easy.)

(Ya'll can consider yourselves out of melee now.)

The beach was quiet after the stunningly quick attack.

Female Human Ranger 2D10

Sasha looked at Phillip, then at his common rapier, comparing it with her own masterwork sword. "Well!" she said, impressed. "Looks like you've gotten better since the crabs woke us up." the woman concluded.

Turning and squinting her eyes, the redhead looked at where the second dimorphodon had flown from. "I bet the nest is up there - and it's ours for the taking." Sasha declared.

Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

Adriano looks back at the cliff going up, mumbling under his breath"great we have to climb again."

In a positive attitude voice trying to sound hopeful "Let's go this should leave the nest unattended. Then we can finish some exploration and head back to camp.

Male Human Aegis 1

Oh no. What have I done! :P

Well, poison isn't exactly great for the sword-arm, y'know?

Yes, it should. If everyone's okay, let's get going, eh?

Phillip, unlike usual, doesn't release his body's hold on the Astral Skin. He does, however, put his rapier away. He waits at the bottom for a bit.Does anyone want me to bring a rope up? If he is given a rope, he'll climb with the rope around his shoulder, if not, he'll just begin climbing.

Climb: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (11) + 5 = 16

Female Human Ranger 2D10

"I've got rope right here!" Sasha said enthusiastically. She took off the 150 feet of hemp rope she had across her shoulders, tying on the grappling hook. When she was done, she handed the entirety to Phillip. "Here - try to get that outcropping, I think that's where it came from." Sasha told him.

Sasha then stood back, watching Phillip climb in his strange wrapping.

Male Human Aegis 1

Perfect. I'll see you at the top, then. Phillip finishes with a mock salute, and proceeds to climb.

Male Human Gamemaster

(One roll gets you 30 feet, Phillip. It's 100 feet up. Unless you're double moving, I'll need three more rolls at DC 15. Standard rope rules apply.)

Male Human Aegis 1

I'm pretty sure take 10 is possible on climb checks. I read somewhere where Sean K Reynolds specifically mentioned it. Found it. The page is about taking 20, but taking 10 on a climb check is mentioned. If it's allowed, I'll take 10, for a 15.

Edit: Might as well put rolls in case it's not allowed.
1d20 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6
1d20 + 5 ⇒ (14) + 5 = 19
1d20 + 5 ⇒ (14) + 5 = 19

Edit 2: Putting a few more dice out, and making sure you know that I have a 40 foot move speed.
1d20 + 5 ⇒ (8) + 5 = 13
1d20 + 5 ⇒ (17) + 5 = 22
1d20 + 5 ⇒ (9) + 5 = 14

Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

Adriano might need a bit of help to make that roll even taking 10.

Edit: I fixed that

Male Human Aegis 1

That's why I've got the rope. Also, wrong alias.

Edit: I see.

Male Human Gamemaster

After a false start Phillip got up the rope. Just before he reached the top of the cliff he slipped again, but valiantly corrected, much to the relief of everyone below. Phillip's attention was drawn to a particular point on the side of the cliff.

Excel spreadsheet of the beach & cliff, if anyone's interested

for Phillip only:
What Phillip found on the side of the cliff was a nest of grass. There laying on the grass were three black-and-red eggs and bits of broken eggshell. (Each egg is ostrich-sized; smaller than a basketball but bigger than a softball.)

(So what do you do?)

Male Human Aegis 1

Do you think I could fit one of the eggs between the prongs on the grappling hook? I'm not entirely sure on the dimensions of a grappling hook.

I've found the nest!

Female Human Ranger 2D10

"Good!" Sasha shouted back. "Now put the egg in..." she broke off, squinting at Phillip's form. "Oh for the love of-" the redhead started to swear. She looked at Adriano, then Ashana. "Everybody's backpack is full, I bet! Good thing I thought ahead!" she said loudly. Taking an empty burlap sack from her belt, she tied it to the end of the rope in front of the three people on the beach. "Here! Haul this up and put the egg inside! And lower it gently, now! I don't want the egg to end up scrambled!" Sasha called up to Phillip.

Male Human Aegis 1

Phillip will indeed haul it up, put an egg inside and begin its slow descent back to the redhead.

Package incoming.

Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

Adriano smiles, then heads over to Sasha, "I am glad we found an egg for you." He watches as Phillip loads up the egg in the bag and waits for it to come down.

Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

Ashana rolls her eyes as she watches the events unfold. "Now that we're done here do you guys want to explore a little more or are you eager to get back to camp and play with your new pet?

Male Half-Elf (Varisian) Cleric of Sarenrae 1

"As long as everyone is up for it I think we should still explore while we have daylight. walking over to Ashana and whispering. "Then we have to try to pick up morale of the rest of our companions like this did with Sasha's.

Female Human Ranger 2D10

Sasha is too busy watching the lowering egg in the burlap sack to talk.

Male Human Gamemaster

(After several minutes of Phillip lowering the sack, Sasha gets the egg. She scoops some warm sand into the sack, to keep the temperature up on the egg.)

(Phillip can continue to look around from where he is, or come down the rope. Several "take 10s" will keep him from making the 100-ft swan dive.)

Female Human Ranger 2D10

"As long as I don't fall down a hole, I'll keep up with you exploring, Ashana." Sasha finally answered the black-furred catgirl. She tied the sack securely to her hip. Sasha shaded her eyes, looking up at the sun. "I think it's noon, or a little after." she estimated. "Plenty of time left before we head back. Ooh! I can't wait to watch this egg hatch!" the young woman giggled.

Male Human Aegis 1

I'm on my way down.

Phillip will take 10 on a cursory perception, resulting in a 10. He will then begin climbing down, also taking 10s.

Female Catfolk Rogue(Scout/Knife master) 1

"I'm glad you're happy Sasha" Ashana says as the egg is lowered down to the red haired woman. Ashana then heads over and picks up the two daggers she threw and will try to reconceal them on her body.

"Any idea where we should head?" she asks to pretty much anyone.

Male Human Aegis 1

Assuming nothing happens complicating Phillip's descent/ nothing catches his eye:

The blonde-haired man comes to join the other group, dismissing his astral skin. Farther down the beach sounds pretty good. It's a nice day for a walk, and I was thinking of taking a dip, maybe.
