Teon, we've been keeping mechanical descriptions in ooc text. It makes the Gameplay thread nice and pretty.

Those round summaries Mark does every once in a while have been the only notable exception.


King of Talingarde

Round 1

So next should be Cain opening the door for one snake then closing it (need a CMB roll against the other snakes, just 1 roll). Then Teon's Readied action (which will have an AoO). If you both want to make your rolls, I'll do Grumblejacks then, and resolve them. Unless someone's gonna change something up.


Outsider (AC: 22|12|20- For:+5| Rex:+6| Wil:+7- Per:+2Init:+3)

Cain slams the door shut, grunting from the effort, "Those are some big damn snakes!" As he pushes, his body shifts, pops, and flexes into its half-wolf form.

Using a move action to shift before attempting the CMB.
CMB 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (14) + 7 = 21.


King of Talingarde

As the door is opened, one of the Cobra's come charging out. Cain manages to shut the door as it does, trapping the other two inside. The one cobra attempts to charge at Cain, but Teon intervenes, grabbing the snake behind it's metallic hood, firmly in grasp. Writhing about, Grumblejack reachs in to help brace, but a narrow miss from a bite sends him pulling back. The snake, while grappled, is still not ready for the sack held by Price.

Grumblejack failed his pin roll.

Class: AC: 16|12|14 - For:+4 | Rex:+3 | Wil:+9 - Per:+15 Init:+7

Who is up in the order? I'm assuming, based on the map positioning, that Price can't get off an attack unless it is a spell and even that may be prevented by Grumblejack blocking LOS. If that's correct - feel free to leave Price with her Ready Action to bag the snake once pinned.


King of Talingarde

Right now you're up, with Shulme and Xanos delaying. You have LoS, but if it requires an Attack Roll, you'll have Firing into Melee (-4) and Soft Cover (-4) to contend with.


Class: AC: 16|12|14 - For:+4 | Rex:+3 | Wil:+9 - Per:+15 Init:+7

LOL! I don't fancy those odds... not to mention the SR! Price will maintain her Ready Action to bag the snake once it is pinned. Wait a second... is a RTA subject to the Firing Into Melee penalty?


Outsider (AC: 22|12|20- For:+5| Rex:+6| Wil:+7- Per:+2Init:+3)

Yes


King of Talingarde

I believe so, but looking at the descriptions, now I'm not so sure. I've always played that way. Let me look into it for abit.


Class: AC: 16|12|14 - For:+4 | Rex:+3 | Wil:+9 - Per:+15 Init:+7

It seems to be a pretty typical way of ruling - that RTA is subject to FIM - based on my quick search. I'm fine with that. I'm just probably mistaking it with 3.5 or some house rule that is giving me brain clutter... I'll go with the Ready Action - Tag'it & Bag'it.


King of Talingarde

Looks like it. The FAQ seems to concur, though it's mostly listing Ray spells.


Outsider (AC: 22|12|20- For:+5| Rex:+6| Wil:+7- Per:+2Init:+3)

I know precise shot is vital for an alchemist

Would Aid Another actions help anywhere? I'm not able to post much right now, so I might as well try to give bonuses to others. Xanos is smart enough to figure out who needs it most, so whoever wants the help, just take it.


Percep +4. Init +8 -- Hp 50/50. AC 18, t12, ff16. Fort+4, Ref+4, Will+6

Unfortunately you cannot use aid another against a foe in combat unless you threaten that foe in melee


King of Talingarde

The two cobras inside the room can be heard beating against the doorway with all their strength, thought to little effect. The third in the hall with you lashes out, attempting to get at the fused form of Fargo/Teon, though in it's position it has little reach to do so.

By the way, I re-read the grapple rules. Grumblejack cannot actually pin the cobras, only Teon can. Grumblejack can aid him do it though, as can Cain in this circumstance. Only the primary Grappler can make checks, others can only Aid Another. GJ did assist though, so if Teon wants to make that check to pin, he can with +2 from GJ.

Okay, snake is pinned, geesh, lol.

The snake firmly grasped by Teon, it's easily placed into a bag by Price. One down, two to go.

Yup I'm back, and staying well away from those cobras. 8 CON is not conducive to succeeding many FORT saves.

To get the next one, as before. Cain needs to make a CMB roll to close the door on the next snake. Teon will need to make two CMB rolls (1 to grapple, 1 to pin). Grumblejack successfully assisted on both, so add +2. Cain can assist on the second roll if he wants to make a second check.

Dice:

GJ1 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (3) + 9 = 12

Of course, if the aid another works, it will be two higher.


King of Talingarde

Round 4

Cain opens the door, easily closing it after allowing the second snake entrance. In fact, too easy, for the snake leaps through the doorway, firmly clasping onto Teon's neck, venom injecting deep into the summoner's fused necking. Teon, I need a Fort save, please. Also take 3 damage from the non-confirmed crit. Fortunately before the bite sinks in too deep, Grumblejack grabs the tail of the snake, pulling it free with only minimal ripping of Teon's fleshy neck.

Fort save 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3 crap


King of Talingarde

Teon:
As the poison seeps into your body, you feel your muscles begin to tighten, becoming harder and harder to move, a feeling of numbness attached to it. You take 1d2 ⇒ 2 points of Dexterity damage. I will actually need more saves. Can youp lease roll me 11 fort saves in a spoiler (I hope they won't all be needed, but just in case). Also determine if you will continue with the third or will let the poison run it's course first?


The wolf-man watches the big demon-man deal with the bite. With two of the snake-things bagged, holding the door closed is taking less of his focus.

His canine lips peel back in what you suppose is a wolfsh grin… mostly a flashing of teeth. And his words are crude and clumsy, spoken through anatomy not designed for the common tongue. "Want me to wait a bit to let the third through?"

If Teon indicates he should wait, he'll wait. Otherwise…

The wolf-man lets the weight of the third snake slam the door open, readying an attempt to help Teon's grab when the time comes.

Release the door and AA on the grapple (DC 10) - 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (14) + 7 = 21.

Teon:
Did you wish to stop and let the poison run it's course first, or just keep going? You're call on this.


Outsider (AC: 22|12|20- For:+5| Rex:+6| Wil:+7- Per:+2Init:+3)

let the poison run its course, then see where we go from there.

Aaaaaaand, just verified the Save DC.

Round 7 Summary

The snake leaps forward, in imitation of it's former and now enbagulated companion. The eerie similarity is enough for Teon to dodge the attack, though it's twist was of a different variety, going left instead of right. Teon misses the snake.

Sorry, I think I did this yesterday, but must not have posted after I previewed.


King of Talingarde

We've all done that.

And the third snake has become trapped, engabulated as the others. At present the sacks seem to hold the writhing forms of the snakes, unable to puncture through at this time, though how long the bags will hold is unknown as the snakes limitless endurance and single-minded focus means they shall never tire.

Maybe. I do wonder if they might be unleashed on something else later.


Class: AC: 16|12|14 - For:+4 | Rex:+3 | Wil:+9 - Per:+15 Init:+7

That might work - assuming the orders given to the snakes are suitably vague. The risk would be if the snakes have orders not to attack the other monsters down here.


Yah, i'd be more happy just removing them from the equation... not risking doubling up on an encounter.

I did a quick loot update in the discussion. Casters (other than Price), you guys wanna make some rolls to see if we can get a better-defined list?
