Funny, you would think that those with the better initiative would be better able to react to the battle rather than the slower ones (those with lower initiative would move before those with the better ones)

(First time playing with the mass combat rules)

Shadow Lodge

The movement rules were tacked on for the scenario and are not found in the original Mass Combat rules. The system was really designed for one big single battle, not many smaller ones spread out over days.

I try to rationalize it as the better initiative letting armies avoid combat by moving away or engage an enemy before they can escape, but it is certainly clunky.

Sorry misread the part about my destruction, rolling now, my bad guys
Tactic = Rage/Relentless Brutality
Morale: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (19) + 3 = 22
Attack(just in case): 1d20 + 13 ⇒ (3) + 13 = 16
Reroll(Attack, may as well try and make it a good one): 1d20 + 18 ⇒ (4) + 18 = 22

Wow, my attack dice have just been utter junk

Current DV = 10, OM = 13

We are now at the biggest problem I had with the mass combat rules in this scenario. Anyone not in a battle or whose army gets destroyed is out of the game until the battle/engagement ends. There were hours of me playing on my phone at PaizoCon, simply because I didn't get to the fight.

I have a retail convention this weekend starting tomorrow night. Responses will be slower during that time. I am hopeful that for good or ill we will have the mass combat over next week.

I am glad that we were able to finish it up on my day off. I here by submit this battle as my Masters thesis for the Battle Herald prestige class. :) And while I do not get to do large scale battles that much anymore, the Grognard in me thanks you, Grandmaster TOZ, so very much for running this adventure!

I think on my move I should have made it to the cover of that horn shaped tube thing. That was the point of moving there so that I would have cover until we got closer. The legend at the top of the map says 1 square=5 feet so it should have been fine. If need be I would take the full round to run and quadruple my move to get to cover. The whole point of moving away from the rest of the group, a risk, was to not be the target of the ranged attacks or magic they can use freely.

Shadow Lodge

Treacherous Waves | Waitlist

You were 160ft away. The arches are roughly 35ft closer. Unless you had greater than 120ft of movement, the second diagonals being 10ft of movement prevented you from reaching cover.

My other option was to have them take their readied action to shoot just you for higher damage. I choose to adjust this way to keep things moving along. I will be sure to pause and give the choice of actions next time something like this comes up.

All good by me. I was pretty scared when we weren't spreading out, I just was trying to not be all in a straight line/fireball formation at that kind of range

If Dryden hadn’t added one more point of damage, Ionnia was going to take 7d8+14 from the crossbow volley and 5d4+8 fire from the burning wave. If both reflex saves failed, that could have been bad.

Would Kel have been within 30ft of Ionnia? Improved Evasion would have helped vs that fire bit if it's considered an AoE :)

(I've had that feat since level one and so far only gotten to use it like three times heh)

Diagonals might have prevented it, but I can't tell from eyeballing it. If it had come up, I would have mocked up the field at home to confirm. (The benefits of having a Chessex Mondomat for a tablecloth.)

Hey on average, I still would have been up (3 HP left), even with the failed saves. If not thats what diehard's for. ;P. No, in all seriousness I was pretty worried, but she pretty much always is on the fine line of living and dying. (And for damage that was a pretty ecent one, she's not a great damage dealer, but I had a much higher damage crit with her at level 2, I wasn't running around fully buffed)

It was a little dull (especially with an army like mine), but it was worth trying out!

There's a reason there isn't any more mass combat in PFS scenarios, it works with the full rules in Wrath and Kingmaker, but really in PFS it just doesn't.

I think it worked better without the changes made for this scenario. I haven't done either of the APs with it, but making it so some armies could be left out of battles was a bad call.

I've done a good chunk of Wrath and looked at Kingmaker. The only build that really feels left out of the mass combat so far has been the Wizard, who legitimately is better as an army of 1 (himself) as long as the other armies aren't allowed to close into melee with him.

So, yea...when my turns comes up again, I'll only be able to help those who my character can see (which means after I take a move action, only those within 5 feet of wherever I end up)...which is what Kel has been trying to get at for the last two turns with the whole "position yourselves" bit...

I keep hoping to see Dryden un-nauseate and get back in it...otherwise Kel might have to grab a bunch of you and D-Door to save some of you...

Yea, I'm having a rare moment of having trouble deciding what to do here...

I think Kel only fails the Fort Save vs nausea if he rolls like a 3 or less, and he likewise would have to roll rather low to not make that Spellcraft check to tell that the warlord is coming for him next.

If Kel keeps concentrating the three of you stay in the fight but then Kel might get KO'd next round...if Kel stops to do anything else you're back to being nauseated again for however many rounds the cloud lasts + extra...if Kel tries to grab people with D-Door to reroup, at least 2 people get left behind...

Kel is one of my characters that I try to make sure has a lot of avenues covered with...but right now I'm almost out of tricks to try here...

Thoughts?

The risk is high, once you KO, there's a pretty good chance of a TPK maybe. I suggest you save yourselves for now if it has to come to it. I'm alright to be left behind.

I'll give it a little more to see if anyone else weighs in OOC-like before I make my IC post...it's a big decision that will affect all of us so I don't want to make it before others get a chance to at least comment.
