Curse of the Crimson Throne

Game Master Something Wicked

Oftentimes, to win us to our harm, the instruments of darkness tell us truths, win us with honest trifles, to betray's in deepest consequence.

Are Avishandi and Nudhaali the riders on the elephants? If so, wouldn't their attacks be blocked by the wall of force?

I believe where I moved Kynes is legal. 3 squares movement for each diagonal through difficult terrain. From current position, can Kynes reach Glorio?


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

@Talfryn: I ran a quick and dirty calculation before I posted. Now, I realize that the wall blocks line of effect, which means you're right, and magic missile wouldn't work here. Thankfully Kynes takes no damage regardless!

@Kynes: there's no longer difficult terrain. Despite the foliage, the only source of difficult terrain was the web, which Garvid sundered.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:52/73 curr AC 24, T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Glorio needs some AC debuffs!

Li tried to Bewilder him to give him a -2 to AC but she couldn't hit him with her sneak attack

@Li, on sniping:

I forgot about your Stealthy Sniper talent. We decided they should stack, so the penalty is actually 0. Pretty cool!

If you’ve already successfully used Stealth at least 10 feet from your target, you can make one ranged attack and then immediately use Stealth again. You take a –20 penalty on your Stealth check to maintain your obscured location.

Action
Usually none. Normally, you make a Stealth check as part of movement, so it doesn’t take a separate action. However, using Stealth immediately after a ranged attack (see Sniping, above) is a move action.

So when sniping you can initially stealth as a non-action, make one ranged attack, then immediately use stealth as a move action. This means one attack per round when using this tactic.

I think that's how it's supposed to work...

@Wicked: Thanks very much for that summary! I've favorited it so I have it for future reference :) However, I totally messed up Li's turn so I apologize because she took two attacks when she shouldn't have. Not that it made any difference since neither hit but still...sorry.


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

That's perfectly okay. I just considered the first roll for the attack. Unfortunately his AC is really high.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:52/73 curr AC 24, T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Well it is making the fight interesting!
Kynes should have held back a bit from the last fight for this one.


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

BTW I forgot about Glorio's SR. No big deal, but future spells against him will need a caster level check to overcome it.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:52/73 curr AC 24, T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Only one AOO per round unless combat reflexes, right?


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

Yep


High AC and DR makes this one a tough cookie.


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

Glorio alone is CR 14...


Male Human HP 33/44 | AC 25/ FF 19/ T 16 | Per +4 | F: 5/ R: 3/ W: 1 | Init +5 | Active Conditions:

We're whittling him down, and nobody here is in any danger of dying, so...


Barbarian 9/Fighter 1 | HP 101/101 | DR 4/- | AC 23, T 12 FF 21 | Fort +13, Ref +7, Will +6 (+6 Superstition) | CMD 28 | Init +2 | Perception +14

Hmm...

We have a definite numbers advantage here.

If we all aid another Garvid (who has +25 with the flank) to Grapple, and afterwards pin him, Mouse can use her Pummeling Style to knock him out with a single blow. Or two single blows, as he'll lose his Dex to AC. Garvid might get shanked a couple of times, but he's used to it.

With Neolandus, Yazi, Talfryn, Mouse, Li, Vencarlo and Kynes, that's +12 just about assured on the aid another check, for the enviable total of +37.

Just hoping he doesn't have freedom of movement. Let's dogpile the cat.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:52/73 curr AC 24, T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Nice idea Garvid!

Kynes is a fairly good tripper. Would the -4 while prone help a grapple?

Also, I forgot to add flank bonus to my combat rolls. Probably won't matter though.


Female Human Unchained Rogue/9 HP 85/85; AC 21 T 15 FF16; Fort+5 Ref+12/14 Will+5; Init+5; Perception+15/18, Sense Motive +15

Which door is Meliya at? The one leading to D1? Do we assume that north is up?


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

She ran out the northeast door. Yes north is up.


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

Pugwampi's grace is a solid spell. Combined with Yazi's evil eye and Kynes's sickening strike, Glorio has been taken down a notch or two...


Male Human HP 44/83 | AC 18/ FF 12/ T 16 | Per +6 | F: 8/ R: 7/ W: 10 | Init +5 | Active Conditions: Mage Armor, Overland Flight

Let's see if I can't get Slow to stick as well...


Female Human Unchained Rogue/9 HP 85/85; AC 21 T 15 FF16; Fort+5 Ref+12/14 Will+5; Init+5; Perception+15/18, Sense Motive +15

Li can still go after Meliya unless Wicked would rather we not split the party


Female Shoanti Shaman 10 (Lore) HP: 80/81 | AC 20/12/19 | F+8 R+7 W+13 | Per +12 Init +7 | Hex DC 20

Heads up that I am very busy/on holiday for the next couple of weeks. Please bot if needed. Yazi is kinda out of high level spells, but still has hexes (and the Accursed Hex feat), as well as channels.


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

Li, that's up to you as players. I'll just resolve what you decide.

Yazi, hope you have a good time!


Male Human HP 44/83 | AC 18/ FF 12/ T 16 | Per +6 | F: 8/ R: 7/ W: 10 | Init +5 | Active Conditions: Mage Armor, Overland Flight

I'd hate for Meliya to get away... and can always haste you, Li, if you give me a moment! In fact, I should have just hasted everyone this round instead of casting Slow. Forgot I can convert my spells into Haste. Um. DM? Can I... change my spell...?


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

I haven't rolled a save against Slow, so go ahead!


Barbarian 9/Fighter 1 | HP 101/101 | DR 4/- | AC 23, T 12 FF 21 | Fort +13, Ref +7, Will +6 (+6 Superstition) | CMD 28 | Init +2 | Perception +14

Sunder damage: 1d10 + 14 ⇒ (5) + 14 = 19

Should destroy a masterwork light blade and break a +1 one, but not a +2.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:52/73 curr AC 24, T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Talfrn's Haste Spell: Kynes is under Channel Vigor with the Limb effect...which is essentially haste. But I would guess it does not stack with an actual haste spell.

So Kynes would like to spend a move action to change the effect to the spirit option: i.e. Gain a +6 competence bonus on Will saving throws and Bluff and Intimidate checks.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:52/73 curr AC 24, T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Perhaps she turned invisible? If so, the masks of the Mantis might help with its ability to cast see invisibility

Kynes, Zenobia Zenderholm did indeed disappear, but the press reported on her reappearance and return to work during the height of the plague .

Today's ultra busy, so likely no post until this weekend at the soonest.

I think it was Vencarlo's house, not his school, that got burned.


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

It was both. You found the academy burned upon arrival. His house, immediately next door, was burned by the Red Mantis during your investigation.

Rough week for Vencarlo :(.


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

*bump*

I'll be traveling Thur. - Sat. so after today I doubt I'll be able to post until next week.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:52/73 curr AC 24, T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Wishing at this moment Kynes was a thief. Bound to be some goodies in this house.


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

I am curious if you'll loot the palace. Perhaps you can rationalize the decision in some way?


Male Human HP 44/83 | AC 18/ FF 12/ T 16 | Per +6 | F: 8/ R: 7/ W: 10 | Init +5 | Active Conditions: Mage Armor, Overland Flight

No need to rationalize - this is the home of the enemy, we are Korvoso's current best hope, and anything we can take to boost our abilities serves the greater good. We can even agree to hand everything over to the city once the threat is passed.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:52/73 curr AC 24, T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Kynes already mentioned that his order expects him to investigate evidence for additional crimes, crime networks, and to secure resources relevant to his work.

Its just that Vencarlo was in a hurry :)

I'll be gone in mid May. Yeah that is a super early heads up. :)

I couldn't pass up the $200 round trip tickets from Cali to Hawaii that are available right now with dates from now until the end of May. Thank you Coronavirus?

Hmm Maybe the "worst" case Coronavirus scenario will involve me being quarantined onto a Hawaiian beech for a few.....weeks.


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

Very busy work week :(.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:52/73 curr AC 24, T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

Yeah me too. Upside is that I get to do it from home now.

Same, we are moving to a WFH setup for a minimum of 2 weeks, so I'm busy organizing that. And then I have my surgery on the 23rd, so I'll be busy with that for a bit. :)


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

I hope all goes well.

I was doing the work-from-home thing last week too while I had some mild flu-like symptoms. It was kind of nice for a short time, but I didn't like being cooped up in my apartment that long.

And best of luck to you, Yazi. I hope everything goes well!


[Roll20] | [Harrow Point Uses] | [Loot] | [Hero Points] | [Padlet] | [Discord Chat]

They've just announced (literally, 20 minutes ago), that all the classes I teach are moving online this week. If last week was busy, I expect the coming week to be worse as I learn the software and adapt the lectures. I hope to still be around, but want to give a heads up.

I hope everyone's doing well.


Lamplighter 10 | HP:52/73 curr AC 24, T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

This is happening to all my professor pals as well. Also, all my research studies have been halted for participant safety. And my kids are not home with me for at least a month. And I ran out of chili garlic sauce and am not sure if I should go buy a case from the grocery store.


Female Human Unchained Rogue/9 HP 85/85; AC 21 T 15 FF16; Fort+5 Ref+12/14 Will+5; Init+5; Perception+15/18, Sense Motive +15

Make sure that when you go buy that case of chili garlic sauce that you also buy 6 cases of toilet paper and push some little old ladies out of the way to get to the hand sanitizer because that's the world we're living in now :P


Lamplighter 10 | HP:52/73 curr AC 24, T:11 FF:14 |( Init +5+1d6 ) Perception +13(+18 traps)| F+6 R+10 W+9|

too much?


Female Human Unchained Rogue/9 HP 85/85; AC 21 T 15 FF16; Fort+5 Ref+12/14 Will+5; Init+5; Perception+15/18, Sense Motive +15

How quickly can Li disable the entrance to the Labyrinth?
