No thank you. I am patient. On the other hand, I did not think about the exotic weapon feat, was going to try for something a bit closer to making him a better rogue. Hmmmm, Thoughts congealing.

Sorry again for the delay. A good friend with two young daughters has been having a particularily tough time involving her abusive ex and custody od their youngest daughter. She's needed a lot of help the past few days and so I haven't really been home. Hoping to get some home time tonight or tomorrow


Unhappiness is rolling a 1 to hit invoking a massive power from a throwing hammer :-(

Luckily Magnum was with the smaller group.

Round 4

"Dammit Kibble!"

Brask doesn't try and find any targets in the blast area, instead he moves up and over 20 feet to get closer to the corral. He calmly takes aim at the sentry at the gate. His arrow flies straight and true.

He thinks about giving further orders, but he trusts the others to do what needed to be done.

Move to Q55
Attack: 1d20 + 7 + 2 ⇒ (20) + 7 + 2 = 29
Crit Confirm: 1d20 + 7 + 2 ⇒ (16) + 7 + 2 = 25
Damage: 3d8 ⇒ (6, 1, 3) = 10
if no crit then only 6 damage
-----------------------------
Miss chance, just in case. (1-20 misses)
1d100 ⇒ 20...really, that just happened.

LOL


Well the calculation I used placed 65 feet from the blast. I just rolled it in case I was wrong.

but yeah, it'd be funnier if it hadn't been one of the few times I get lucky enough to confirm a crit.

Chainmail:
Just curious as I am trying to figure out a way to keep myself alive right now. If it is difficult terrain, how did the dwarf move that far and still trip me? I was trying to place myselffar enough away as to not get surrounded last time. If that is the way it is then no problem. Like I said just trying to keep myself alive. As it is I am fine with being stunned still for 2 rounds and being tripped on the second round.


Kragg:
This dwarf is wearing a nightshirt in the winter and walking through snow like it is clear terrain. He is one badass in the snow. You are ready to act in your spot. At least he didn't grab your weapon :-)


Male dwarf Cleric 1

Chainmail:
No problem. Just making sure I was catching that correctly. Not something you see all the time. Thanks for the quick reply.


I'm really sorry to say that I'm dropping out of this game. Due to new time constraints in RL I have to cut back on my PBP gaming.


No problem - The darkness spell was perfect for the situation. Well done there. Sorry to see you go.


Male Probably human Computer Scientist 1/ Character Synthesizer 20/ Crazy 99

Good luck with the stuff in RL. I know you will be missed!


Male dwarf Cleric 1

Back from Easter and wow the humans are running, Kragg has an axe, and Thograt is going AWOL. Alot can happen in a few days.

Thograt, sorry to see you go but hopefully RL clears up and you can relax and enjoy RL again. Good Luck.


Male dwarf Cleric 1

Waiting to see what the other dwarf and Kib do before I post. Basically trying to figure out if I attack a fellow dwarf with lethal intent or the human first so we can capture the dwarf. If you want me to post now I will, just let me know.


Gnome Fey-Blood Sorcerer/4 | AC 15/15/13 [19/15/17 with MA] +4 vs Giant type; HP 26/26; F/R/W 3/4/6 +2vs illushns; Prcp +4; Init +6;

I a little confused as to what's going on, as Chainmail just posted Kib as casting Grease, but I thought that was (or wasn't?) cast a while ago on the horse (if it came into the area he was waiting for it?)


I think you have another action left.


Kib cast grease on the dwarf that tripped Kragg last round. Kib is up again.

Sczarni

Rogue3/Wiz1 by training, Machiavellian by temperment

Hon may have already let fly anther missle of miss. From 10' away. Against a man on a horse (M size+M size=large). From a stealthed position. Depends on whether or not, he was noticed. Still, my rolls leave much to desire...


M Brownin (Half Pale Skin/Half Dark Skin) Healer 8/Merchant 3

I had Kib cast blindness on the Dwarf, or was that another round?


Male dwarf Cleric 1

That was 2 rounds ago. Last round was the grease spell. Still waiting for this rounds actions before Kragg posts as who knows what is going to happen.


Male dwarf Cleric 1

Can Kragg tell who the leader is on the north side of the encampment? If so that is who he is targeting next. One more round like and Kragg is out of commission.


Hence why I want everyone together. the plan now is get Kragg healed and withdraw. Hon and Brask will provide cover as the rest withdraw. We'll get anyone hurt back up to snuff then do another hit and run no sneakiness this time. Unless everyone thinks we should withdraw for tonight and hit them again the next night.


Male dwarf Cleric 1

Kragg will be going defensive next time against the human to eliminate the flanking bonus they get. Hopefully between that, combat penalties, and cover any ranged attacks will miss. That just leaves the 2 dwarves 1 of which is on the ground. It would all have been ok if Magnum hadn't thrown that hammer and stunned me. Definitely going to have to talk to that human about tactics and not getting each other killed.


Gnome Fey-Blood Sorcerer/4 | AC 15/15/13 [19/15/17 with MA] +4 vs Giant type; HP 26/26; F/R/W 3/4/6 +2vs illushns; Prcp +4; Init +6;

Wouldn't the grease underneath the horses by magnum&kib still be having some effect as well? Isn't it a Ref every round?


Grease is an ACR at DC 10 every round. The mounted horses are handling it fairly well. The fact that it counts as difficult terrain kept Magnum from being flanked. Note that the unarmored dwarf didn't do to well entering it, he is down.


Gnome Fey-Blood Sorcerer/4 | AC 15/15/13 [19/15/17 with MA] +4 vs Giant type; HP 26/26; F/R/W 3/4/6 +2vs illushns; Prcp +4; Init +6;

Ah yes, ok, thanks : )


Male dwarf Cleric 1

On the way back to the caravan, Kragg will don the cloak of resistance as there is no need to be stealthy.


Male dwarf Cleric 1

Whoooo. Level 3. Let's see to keep up with Khazad I need to take either power attack or weapon focus. Hit harder or more often? Any suggestions?

Brask I took cold sa well for favored terrain unless you think we should alternate. It just seems like everything is cold based right now and the other paths we could take are also cold inclined...capturing a ship from a harbor and stuff like that.


Male dwarf Cleric 1

Hey Brask what do you want with this shiny new axe I am holding on to?


Sounds, good. I say hold on to the axe for now, we'll probably be needing it.


In my opinion, because power attack scales as it does, it may be one of the best melee feats in the game. For a two-hand fighter or two-weapon it is even better than a weapon/shield build.


Male dwarf Cleric 1

I agree. the only down side is tat I am already taking inuses to hit due to dual weilding. However with trained by Rock and the banner bonus, that offsets those penalties. Probably will go with Power Attack.


So - the campaign is five months old in real time - characters are at level 3.

Progression seems fine for a PbP. This combat action was a side-quest. Not part of the normal progression but to reveal something about internal politics in the dwarf stronghold.

Sczarni

I am no longer AFK. What did I miss? Combat resolution, level advancement, Hon's reduction in the social pecking order( was there one to begin with?) & storyplot twist (or layers. I like layers. Pancakes have layers.)

I'll advance Hon up one level. And yes I agree that Hon has not been very useful for this side-trek. Mayhaps next time his aim will be truer, skillz more pertinent, his actions and judgement supportive of the whole. Or not.

Puzzling out which feat is best for Hon. Min/max or char dev or survival of fittest. Choices.


Male dwarf Cleric 1

Hon is fine the way he is... A human lov'n, gambl'n, fraterniz'n, shoulder rubb'n...nah he's fine.


I dunno. I have no idea what kinda of rogue you're going for, but Feats that give bonuses to skills you use a lot are never a bad way to go.

Sczarni

Rogue3/Wiz1 by training, Machiavellian by temperment

I agree with you Brask. Lightning Reflex answered all three of the categories. The variety is so distracting... Dodge(Feat Tree), Deep sight, Iron Will/Great Fort, etc...

Oh Kragg, such a joker... Sleep well tonight. I've got the mid-watch. ;-)


Replacement for Thograt inbound soon. Thograt and Ninni will be leaving soon.

That is good news as Kragg could use some healing. Front line without much armor requires a good cleric behind you.


Do you need Brask to inspect the troops?


No, I'll do a big DM post tonight and get things going.

Dwarves in the Big City. I am sure that will be fun!

Sczarni

Rogue3/Wiz1 by training, Machiavellian by temperment

I do not stalk, shadow, skulk or loiter. You must have me confused with some other Dwarf... ;-)


Kragg finds a new feat in place of Luck of Stonecrusher. Magrim's Presence -- Your existence is a testament to the existence of incredible and divine dwarf power. Your will is stronger after seeing the threshold to the afterlife and coming back. +3 on all Will saves.

Information on Humpty's faction to follow.

Stares in disbelief...uh ok. thanks. Part of me is now worried what we are going to be facing next. But I am not complaining.

Thanks again.

Hon is leveled and posted. Sweet trick Kragg. I was gonna play along but looks like Chainmail got involved. Nice twist that!

Hopefully Hon won't get lost or in trouble.


By the way. I just want to welcome Nar to the party. Glad ya came here instead of going to the elves. We make better archers anyhow cuz we don't run from melee!

Seriously glad to have ya.


Male dwarf Cleric 1

Here, here. Welcome to the clan Nar. Just watch out for those dwarves that associate with humans too much. Pratical jokes seem to be played on those people.


Gnome Fey-Blood Sorcerer/4 | AC 15/15/13 [19/15/17 with MA] +4 vs Giant type; HP 26/26; F/R/W 3/4/6 +2vs illushns; Prcp +4; Init +6;

Yup! Welcome Nar.

In checking out his character sheet, a few things struck me as being off, particularly his only having 10hp. Perhaps you still have him at his level 1 hp? Unless i'm misremembering, I believe Chainmail has given us max hp every level.

Also, shouldn't his channels per day be higher than 2?

Sczarni

Rogue3/Wiz1 by training, Machiavellian by temperment

Max hp? I thought it was 1/2HD +1, +con...


Welcome Nar. Dumped squarely in the dilemma. Isolation or integration. The RP has been excellent so far.

I hope to get everyone more involved soon.


Male dwarf Cleric 1

Kragg is currently max HP at first and 1/2 HD +1 after that.
