Female Eladrin Bard 2

Okay, I'll stick with my move (teleporting to B6 and if time, grabbing sword) but add...
Orla looks at Thanis with a horrified expression on her face. "Just what kind of experiment did they do to you?!?"


Nirifanya moves to the top of the steps just under Savi. With a sigh of relief he is finally able to call on the spirits for help.
"Spirits of Lamannia, come to our aid!".

A spectral tiger jumps forms up from the ground between Savi and the skeletons. Thunder erupts on Savi's target, nearly bloodying it.
Nirifanya's actions:
Move to Green2. Minor: Summon Spirit Companion. Standard: Lamannia's Warding
vs sk5: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (17) + 5 = 22 vs Fort. HIT:1d6 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9 thunder damage
AND ALL allies adjacent to the spirit gain damage reduction of 3
ALSO, Savi gains 3 temp hp.

Niri's Tiger Spirit:
The is an ally creature.
It occupies a square, and it can be used for flanking
It also sometimes grants bonuses to adjancent allies depending on the spell that Niri casts.

Alester, Savi, and Nirifanya have DR3 for the next turn as long as they stay adjacent to Nirifanya's spirit companion.

<<New Map>>
Zvia, it's your turn.


Female Githzerai Seeker 2

I'd like to move up to N4.


Seeing Zvia run up the stairs, the rest of your fellow prisoners being to file forward as well...
The skeletal guards continue their attacks, but you seem to have a defensive foothold and easily parry their assaults. Alester and Savi calmly absorb every attempt to drive them back down the stairs.
Skeletons:
5: Attacks Savi: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (1) + 6 = 7 vs AC, *major miss*
6: Activates the trap: It targets Squares: 1d9 ⇒ 5 and 1d9 ⇒ 5 and 1d9 ⇒ 9 and 1d9 ⇒ 4 (each square can only hit once):
- Trap Attack vs Zvia: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (8) + 5 = 13 vs REF, *miss*
- Trap Attack vs AllyA: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10 vs REF, *miss*
- Trap Attack vs AllyD: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (8) + 5 = 13 vs REF, **HIT** he takes necrotic damage and is slowed...
---new round---
1: Ignors Rallnik's mark and again attempts to push Alester back into the stairs... Rallnik gets a free OA on Skeleton1: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (17) + 7 = 24 vs AC, hit for: 1d8 + 6 + 1 ⇒ (7) + 6 + 1 = 14 divided by 2... Then the skeleton gets its BULL RUSH vs Alester: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (7) + 3 = 10 vs FORT, *miss*
2: Attacks the newly risen Thanis 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (20) + 6 = 26, CRIT! for 12, though Niri's spirit creature blocks some of the damage.

In the middle of the skeleton melee, Thanis stands up. A strange look covers his face. He seems just as shocked as everyone else that he is standing, he looks at the hole in his chest that has healed somewhat. Unfortunately, in the middle of his dazed state, the nearest skeleton stabs him again nearly sending him back to the realm of the dead (Poor guy, his strange power kicks in, healing him, getting him back in the fight, and he gets critted as he stands up! lol ).

Updated Special Map Notes w/ positions and move costs:

Savi is in the room at D4 (above the stairs and free to move)
Zvia is on the stairs at Green4 (can only see Green3 and Green5)
Niri is at Green2 (just below the top of the stairs and able to see into the room)
NPC allies are on the stairs and down the hall, behind Zvia

On the sideview of the stairs. You must move from green# to green# sequentially. Once you're at green1 you will be at D4 on the normal map and can move normally. It costs 2 moves to enter ANY green# square, 3 moves if you are moving through an ally.
If you're at green2 you can see the room and can attack targets nearby (you can also be attacked -- and those in the room will get a +2 bonus as if you're prone!).
If you're at green3 you can see D4 only (and it that square has cover from you)
Otherwise you can only see adjacent green#s

If you move from green2 to green1, the skeletons will attack you (OA) because you are moving through their threat-zone (and no, you cannot shift on the stairs -- unless you're able to shift more than one square of movement).

Total Damage to PLAYERS:
none

Thringorn will shift to F3 and attack and mark Skeleton 4.

Steel Serpent's Strike vs. AC

1d20 + 8 ⇒ (1) + 8 = 9+2=11 fail

HP: 17/42 Temp HP: 12/15 Surges: 8/10 AP: 0/1


The mark still takes at least... so it's not a complete loss.

E3 would be great. It opens up the stairwell for more people and I can hopefully get access to S6 shortly.

Okay. When S5 misses Savi, Orla uses the Virtue of Cunning to slide her to E3.


Male Human Blackguard Level 2

I will attack the skeleton at B3

Attack roll 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (13) + 5 = 18 I think that is a hit...

Damage roll 1d8 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6 sigh can't seem to roll high damage at all...


It was a good enough hit, that skeleton only had 2hp left. So, even weakened, you're still golden.

Alester drives his blade through the skeleton that has been harassing him. The necrotic energy holding the undead together explodes out catching Thanis and Savi at the edge of the burst..
S1 is dead.
Skeleton immediate reaction to Bloodied and/or Death:
Close Burst 3 (everyone within 3 of square B3), attack vs REF for 1d6 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3 necrotic damage.
Rallnik: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11 miss
Orla: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11 miss
Alester: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10 miss

Thanis: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 25 CRIT! for 8 damage
Nirifanya: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11 miss
Nirifanya's Spirit Beast: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (11) + 5 = 16 *hit* but no effect.
Savi: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 25 CRIT! for 8 damage


NOTE: Savi and Thanis are still protected by Niri's Spectral Tiger, they get Damage Reduction 3.
Which saves Thanis from dying again.

Total Damage to Players:
Savi: 8 (minus 3 from the spectral tiger) = 5


Rallnik moves around the outside of the room and positions himself to help his karrnathi brother and takes a piece of bone out of his target.
Attack vs Skel2 (marking it): 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (13) + 7 = 20 vs AC, hit for 1d8 + 6 ⇒ (2) + 6 = 8 divided by 2 => 4.
The skeleton that is nearest the stairs, makes a grab for Savi, but just bearly misses her (Their "simple programming" is to try and keep as many of you in the stair well as possible while they activate the trap... he was probably hoping to grab you and then throw you down the stairs next turn).
Grab vs Savi: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (12) + 3 = 15 vs REF, *miss*


THRINGORN! You get an OA vs Skel4 for it attacking Savi.

Male Human Fighter 2

AOO vs. S4

1d20 + 10 ⇒ (15) + 10 = 25

Damage

1d8 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7 = 3

HP: 17/42 Temp HP: 12/15 Surges: 8/10 AP: 0/1


Female Genasi - Cindersoul Swordmage 2

I recover from the blast of the fallen skeleton and move in an intricate pattern around S4, just barely stepping outside of his grasp. As I whirl around, I use his stumble to strike.

Lightning Clash on S4 vs AC
1d20 + 11 ⇒ (15) + 11 = 26
1d8 + 7 ⇒ (1) + 7 = 8 = 4

With a sizzling flash a bolt of lighting flies from the skeleton (s4) to his brethren (S6).

Lightning Clash pt 2 on S6 vs Ref
1d20 + 11 ⇒ (10) + 11 = 21
1d6 + 7 ⇒ (2) + 7 = 9 = 4

I pull the sword back over my head, wiping smudges of char onto my prison garb.


Female Eladrin Bard 2

"Poor little skeleton, marked by Thringorn; die again today, with all of our scorn."

Vicious Mockery on S4 vs Will
1d20 + 5 - 2 ⇒ (9) + 5 - 2 = 12
1d6 + 5 ⇒ (3) + 5 = 8 damage and -2 penalty to any attacks until Orla's next turn

PS Zvia would like to hold her action until Nirifanya has had a chance to get out of the way.


Vicious Mockery! Unfortunately, the skeleton can only go "oooon" back, lol.

Orla's mental attack on the skeleton has it loosen its grip on undeath, and a portion of its necrotic energy bursts out. The shockwave knocks into Thanis and Orla.
Skeleton4 is Bloodied!
Skeleton immediate reaction to Bloodied and/or Death:
Close Burst 3 (everyone within 3 of square E4), attack vs REF for 1d6 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4 necrotic damage.
Orla: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21 *HIT* for 4 damage
Alester: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7 miss

Thanis: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (13) + 5 = 18 *HIT* for 4 damage (-3 Damage Reduction)
Rallnik: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11 miss
Nirifanya: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11 miss
Nirifanya's Spirit Beast: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21*HIT*, but for no effect
Savi: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (7) + 5 = 12 miss
Thringorn: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11 miss

Total Damage to Players:
Orla = 4


Savi, I'm assuming you're keeping Skel5 marked.

Nirifanya then sends out waves of healing energy from his tiger before trying to find a better location in the room -- moving to the far corner (He moves to A2). Both the skeletons ringing the stairs swing at Niri. And then his spirit tiger strikes back.
Skel4 OA vs Niri: 1d20 + 6 + 2 ⇒ (18) + 6 + 2 = 26, HIT:1d8 + 4 - 3 ⇒ (4) + 4 - 3 = 5
Skel5 OA vs Niri: 1d20 + 6 + 2 ⇒ (16) + 6 + 2 = 24, HIT:1d8 + 4 - 3 ⇒ (7) + 4 - 3 = 8

Niri's turn:
Minor: Healing spirit on Thanis, and ALESTER gains 1d6 ⇒ 4 hp
Move: move to A2, and move the tiger to C6.
Standard: Tiger's Protecting Strike vs S2: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (11) + 5 = 16 vs Will, hit for 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9, and Thanis, Orla, and Rallnik all gain 3 temp hp.

Healing on Players:
Alester gains 4 real hp.
Orla gains 3 temp hp (after taking the damage from above).

Savi, your marked target triggers an OA (or your shielding power and save Niri 8hp in damage).
Thringorn, you get another OA vs Skeleton4 for it attacking Niri

Zvia, you're up.
Nirifanya is now at A2, his Tiger is at C6.


After healing:
- Thanis is okay now -- he's bloodied, but not by much (he's above 25%)
- Rallnik is doing slightly better -- he's bloodied, but just barely (he's close to 50%)
- Niri is fine -- he's not even bloodied


How's everyone else doing?


Male Human Fighter 2

Aoo vs. S4

1d20 + 10 ⇒ (8) + 10 = 18

Damage

1d8 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7=3

HP: 17/42 Temp HP: 12/15 Surges: 8/10 AP: 0/1


Female Genasi - Cindersoul Swordmage 2

I did keep S5 marked and I do use the shielding on his hit against Nirifanya which will reduce the damage of that hit to 0.


Female Githzerai Seeker 2

I move to the position Nirifanya just vacated (N2), and throw one of my bra-rocks at skeleton S4, invoking

Flicking Arrow (errr, Rock) on S4 Wisdom vs AC
1d20 + 5 - 2 ⇒ (10) + 5 - 2 = 13
My rock slips through his ribs, but my throws are inevitable, and the rock whirls back around at S4's neighbor.
Inevitable Shot on S5 Basic ranged attack versus AC
1d20 + 3 - 2 ⇒ (14) + 3 - 2 = 15
And it missed him, too. *sigh*

Frustrated, I throw Encaging Spirits at S4 and S5, pushing them one square away from the top of the stairs and slowing them.


Rallnik's men charge up the stairs, one of them is even able to squeeze past Zvia and into the room (he ends at D5, but has no actions left to attack). The rest of your fellow cellmates end up in the stairwell (and allyD saves from being slowed)...
The skeletons continue their standard strategy of trying to push people back into the stairs while one activates the trap.

Skeletons:
Skel5: Tries to Bull Rush the newly arrived ally back into the stairs: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 3 = 5 vs FORT... major miss
Skel6: Activates the trap. It targets squares: 1d9 ⇒ 3 and 1d9 ⇒ 9 and 1d9 ⇒ 3 and 1d9 ⇒ 8 (each square can only be hit once).
- vs AllyB: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (13) + 5 = 18 vs REF, *HIT* (minor necrotic damage and SLOWED!)
- vs AllyE: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (11) + 5 = 16 vs REF, *HIT* (minor necrotic damage and SLOWED!)
- vs AllyF: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (3) + 5 = 8 vs REF, miss

Thanis shifts away from the group and tries to gather his wits, but just can't seem to shake his confusion (save vs Dazed Effect from mysteriously coming back from the dead... 1d20 ⇒ 5).

== New Round ==
One of the skeletons continues after Thanis, trying to kill him (again), but Rallnik draws his attention.
Skeleton2 tries to shift after Thanis, drawing an OA from Rallnik (fighters get a special OA even agains a shift)
Rallnik OA vs Skel2: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (15) + 7 = 22 - HIT! stopping the skeleton with a little damage
Skel2 decides to attack Rallnik instead: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (10) + 6 = 16 vs AC, hit for 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6 damage

Thringorn will shift to G4 and attack S4.

Wicked Strike vs. AC

1d20 + 8 - 2 ⇒ (4) + 8 - 2 = 10


Male Human Blackguard Level 2

I will shift to C5 and attack at D6 with Ferocious Strike!

Attack Roll 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (13) + 5 = 18 Hopefully another hit!!

"Return to the graveyard you foll beast!"

Damage roll:1d8 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11 So rounded down that is 5 Damage if i hit

Current HP 13 + 4 = 17 Surges 8/12 AP 0/1


Alester's anger fuels his strike. The blow weakens the skeleton's hold on his necrotic energy, and most in the room are washed in the undead's power.

Skeleton2 is Bloodied!

The skeletons switch strategies and now just engage their targets with blades. Thringorn is easy able to counter the attacks and moves.
Skel4 shifts to guard the trap mechanism and then attacks Thringorn.
THRINGORN: You get an AO on the skeleton for trying to shift around you. If you hit, it prevents his movement.
Either way, the skeleton will continue its attack
Skel4 attack vs Thringorn:
1d20 + 6 - 2 ⇒ (2) + 6 - 2 = 6 vs AC, major whiff

Rallnik takes up a better position, but he misses his target...

<<newest map>>

If Thringorn hits with his OA, then skel4 will stay at F4, otherwise it will be at G5 as shown on the current map.


Male Human Fighter 2

AOO on S4.

1d20 + 8 ⇒ (1) + 8 = 9 Fail

HP: 17/42 Temp HP: 12/15 Surges: 8/10 AP: 0/1


oooh, a 1. Yeah, the universe of random dice didn't want my map to be wrong...
So, Skeleton4 is correctly placed at G5 (he's covering the switch to the stair's trap).


Female Eladrin Bard 2

"Silly skeleton, by now you should know, it's well past time for your life force to go."

If at first you don't succeed:

Vicious Mockery on S4 vs Will (again)
1d20 + 5 - 2 ⇒ (20) + 5 - 2 = 23
Ooooo, any bonus for rolling a 20?
1d6 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11 Boo-ya!

Can I hold my last action until after the fallout from that hit is reported? I'm worried Thirngorn might need some healing if S4 goes kablooey.

HP: 23/29 Surges: 4/8 AP: 0


Natural 20's == CRIT! Whoohoo!
A crit is an automatic hit for automatic Max Damage.
Then, certain powers, weapons, and magic items will add a bonus to your crit. For example, when you get a magic implement and use it to cast your spells, most magic implements will say something like:
"Critical: +1d6 damage per plus"
So you would get Max damage and then an addition 1d6...

And, yes, it's perfectly fine to hold the rest of your action to see how things play out with an attack or whatever :) Probably wise in thise case, because...

The skeleton looks up at Orla as if almost comprehending her words, its empty eye socks glow as it stares at her... and then the instant passes as Orla's arcane power causes its skull to explode!

Boo-ya indead

Skeleton4 is detroyed!
Skeleton immediate reaction to Bloodied and/or Death:
Close Burst 3 (everyone within 3 of square G5), attack vs REF for 1d6 + 2 ⇒ (1) + 2 = 3 necrotic damage.

: Thringorn : 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6, miss!

Total Damage to Players:
Savi-Kai = 3 damage

And the space at G5 is now open - I'll update the map later


Female Eladrin Bard 2

Guys, let me know if one you badly needs healing. I've only got one usage left this encounter, and I'm not doing a very good job of tracking your HP...


These are my best guesses at everyone's current health:
Alester: 17/32
Orla: 23/29
Savi-Kai: 12/37
Thringorn: 17/42
Zvia: 20/28


Male Human Fighter 2

Thringorn also has 12 temp hp so he is essentially sitting at 29 hp and is good for now with healing.

HP: 17/42 Temp HP: 12/15 Surges: 8/10 AP: 0/1


Oh right! I forgot about your Unstoppable power that gave you like 20 temp hp. NICE! A very useful fighter power.


Female Eladrin Bard 2

Okay, as far as I can see from the rules, unless someone is in immediate danger of going to zero HP, there's no advantage to healing in combat -- might as well wait until we can do the same thing after the combat is over. (Strange how different this feels from 1st ed AD&D!) So I'm done with my turn for this round. :)


The only advantage would be if they're about to die, lol. And there are certain monsters down the road that do more damage (or other effects) to bloodied targets, so that could be an incentive to heal in combat... but in general, yes, healing after combat is just as good/useful/fast. And actually for Orla, everyone get +5hp per surge when they rest outside of combat (Song of Rest)... so, I would say, unless someone is in danger of dying or has died, wait till after combat.

Actually, Orla's in-combat Majestic Word healing power also gets the +5hp bonus. :) But yeah, since she can only use it twice in one encounter (and she's already used it once this time out) it seems like it's best to save it until it is really needed.


Female Genasi - Cindersoul Swordmage 2

Seeing my allies moving into the room causes me to forget the sharp splinters of bone dotting my side and I whirl my blade at the skeleton in the alcove.

Lightning Lure on S6
1d20 + 7 ⇒ (20) + 7 = 27 vs Fort Thrin, this is for you!
1/2 Max Dam
1d6+6 (12) plus 1d6 ⇒ 6 =9 total

AND

S6 is pulled across the room until he is before me. (F4)

Time to play, Old Boney. My hair dances wickedly and a bit of a maniacal laugh escapes before I can stop myself.

I so very much wanted to say, "No one puts Baby in a corner." But that didn't sound as bad ass.

HP: 12/37, Surges: 9/11(-1), AP: 1/1


GREAT CRITS!

Savi's chains glow as they try their best to weaken the energy of her attack, it saves her skeletal foe... but it's doesn't prevent him from being pulled to her side.

A new map since there's been a fair amount of change in the last few moves... <<newest map>>

Oddly enough, "Old Boney" is one of Jen and my favorite Newfoundland fiddle tunes, so "Time to play 'Old Boney'" would have a very different meaning for us.

Oh wise and powerful GM: Zvia's Elemental Spirits power says "Until the end of your next turn, any creature that starts its turn adjacent to the target takes damage of the chosen type equal to your Dex modifier." Is that literally "any creature" or is it any enemy?


Male Human Fighter 2

We should get a scenario bonus for creative use of dirty dancing quotes...hehe. Does Savi's "pull" on S6 create an AOO for me?



@Orla: "Any creature" is literally anyone: friend, foe, or indifferent. The lower level spells often have that problem -- forcing you to be very careful with spell placements and uses. When you get more powerful attacks at higher levels, you will see "any enemy" more frequently.
@Thringorn: No, you don't get an OA on the skeleton. Forced movement never provokes OAs.


Female Githzerai Seeker 2

I step off the staircase and head toward the exit, stopping on D1, whirling around, flinging a bra-rock at skeleton S2, and calling on the spirits to smite him and hold him in place.

Grappling Spirits on S2
1d20 + 5 - 2 ⇒ (15) + 5 - 2 = 18 is a hit!
1d4 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 5 = 9 damage and the target is slowed and can't shift until the end of its next turn.


Nirifanya joins Zvia at the exit and commands his spectral tiger to attack her target. Finishing off the skeleton.
Tiger: Protecting Strike vs Skel2: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21 vs Will, for 1d8 + 4 ⇒ (7) + 4 = 11 damage and Everyone adjacent to the tiger gains 3 temp hp. So, Orla and Alester both gain 3 temp hp (temp hp are not cummulative, you get the higher amount, so if you had 5temp hp, this would do nothing, but if you had 2 temp hp, you would now have 3).

Skeleton2 is detroyed!

The rest of your fellow prisoners continue to run up the steps, and try to help where able (They're not armed, but at least they can help you get Combat Advantage against your enemies!). One of them even manages to grab hold of one of the skeletons (Grabbing just means that the skeleton can't move, it can still attack and be attacked without penalty).

Allies A-H actions:


Ally A grabs for skel5: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (14) + 4 = 18 vs REF, HIT!
Everyone moves up the stairs.
Ally C ends up at E4, but is out of actions...
B and E save: 1d20 ⇒ 16, 1d20 ⇒ 13 - Both saved!

The skeletons attack with thier blades...
Skeleton5:
Attacks Rallnik: 1d20 + 6 - 2 ⇒ (6) + 6 - 2 = 10 vs AC, miss
Skeleton6:
Shifts over and Attacks Savi-Kai: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (7) + 6 = 13 vs AC, miss

Thanis moves away from the combat and continues to try and shake off the unease of rising from the dead.
Save vs Dazed: 1d20 ⇒ 11

Total Damage to PLAYERS:
Orla (gained 3 temp from Niri) (lost 5 from the dying skeleton) = 2
Alester (gained 3 temp from Niri)

Thringorn will shift to G3 and attack and mark S6.

Wicked Strike vs. AC

1d20 + 8 ⇒ (12) + 8 = 20

Damage

1d8 + 5 + 3 ⇒ (3) + 5 + 3 = 11 = 5

Thrin, not that it matters, but I think you forgot to add +2 for a flanking bonus... you hit either way
Thrin's strike bloodies the skeleton and the familiar explosion of necrotic energy erupts from the undead.
Skeleton6 is Bloodied!

Alester, you're up


Male Human Fighter 2

I added the flank but wicked strike gives me a -2 to hit in exchange for extra damage. I appreciate the reminders though because I do tend to forget some of the details.

HP: 17/42 Temp HP: 9/15 Surges: 8/10 AP: 0/1


Male Human Blackguard Level 2

I will move to D6 to try and attack the held Skeleton at E6 with ferocious strike!

Alester's fury overtakes him as he attacks the skeleton!

Attack roll 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (4) + 5 = 9 and that's a miss even when someone is holding the skeleton...How embarrassing!

Current HP 17 = 17 - 5 + 3 Temp = 12 + 3 Temp Surges 8/12 AP 0/1


Sir Redwyne's anger gets the better of him... or perhaps he was just trynig to be too cautious and not hit his ally. Either way, Alester's blade sails through the air hitting nothing.
Rallnik decides to spend a moment to try and catch his wind... (Rallnik uses his Second Wind which gives him a healing surge and +2 to all defenses till next turn -- he's still bloodied, but at least he's not at 3hp anymore!).

Savi, Orla, Zvia you're all up.
<<The Map>> hasn't changed much. Thrin is at G3 and Alester is at D6. Skeleton6 just got bloodied, Skeleton5 is almost bloodied.


Female Eladrin Bard 2

Orla looks at skeleton 5. "Rotten bones, your time is done; finishing you off will be quite fun."

Vicious Mockery on S5 vs Will
1d20 + 5 - 2 ⇒ (1) + 5 - 2 = 4 and that mockery utterly fizzles.


Female Githzerai Seeker 2

Buoyed by my last success, I try the same trick on Skeleton 6.

Grappling Spirits on S6
1d20 + 5 - 2 ⇒ (9) + 5 - 2 = 12 ... but my rock slips through its ribs without hitting bone.

HP: 17/28 surges: 6/7 AP: 0/1
