Ok so it isn't just me. :)

It was an issue but for me it seems to have Blvd itself up...

I posted that reply, then the second and they both showed up, but when I came back seconds later to change the avatar I mistakenly used neither of them were visible anymore, so yeah, there are problems.

Edit: And then showed up out of order :/

It happens to me as well.


Like just now.

A quick overview of our best lead “lawyers” on the various skills and which “counselors” can assist:

Bluff - attempted by Myron (fail)
Diplomacy - Kheled (+13), assist Dumah, Elrisiel
Intimidate - Kheled (+6), assist Rakara
Knowledge (local) - Rakara (+10), assist Myron, Elrisiel
Perform (oratory) - none
Sense Motive - Kheled (+7), assist Myron, Rakara

So our best bet for succes would be Kheled and Rakara as lead defense with Diplomacy, Knowledge (local) and Sense Motive, saving Intimidate as an emergency defense.

Double move to G6.

Don't feel like another social encounter, Mark?

Given Dumah's backstory, I can totally understand why he may not feel like having a civilized chat with a bunch of undead - especially ones that are in the process of harming innocents.

On the other hand, since we found out that this encounter could be resolved as a courtroom social challenge, I was kinda looking forward to that as a player.

Not looking to dictate the action, just wanted to make my own feelings known before combat starts.

I am fine with it going as a social encounter. I'll probably be doing assists to rolls, so I'll want to see what Kheled throws out so I can play off of it as an assist. In the meantime, I was going to position myself in case talks break down.

Awesome. Just wanted to check. :-)

Yeah you guys nailed the rolls in this encounter. :)

I want to make sure I understand the Butterfly Sting effects properly.

Myron has to successfully confirm a critical hit, then opt to not take the critical effects for that hit.

Before Myron's next turn, if someone successfully rolls to hit that same opponent, their strike is automatically a confirmed critical hit? To me the language wasn't clear. Do I still need to roll a critical hit that is then automatically confirmed? Or is the hit automatically considered a critical hit that I then need to roll to confirm?

And if I roll a critical myself and confirm it, does Myron's ability for that round go to waste, or can someone else then strike the same opponent and take advantage of it?


Male Osirian Oracle (Life) FC 4 HP:34 AC:15 INIT:+1 PERC:+3 F/R/W:+3/+2/+4

This is my understanding. It is a great ability for rogues working with BBN's, allies with great axes or any x3 crit weapons, or Paladins with Smite abilities!

When he gets expanded crit ranges it can get nasty.


Male Osirian Oracle (Life) FC 4 HP:34 AC:15 INIT:+1 PERC:+3 F/R/W:+3/+2/+4

Elrisiel, as far as skills go, do you want me to continue to focus on Knowledge undead and you can start to invest in planes and some other knowledge skills?
I just won't have enough skill points to really be good in more than one knowledge skill.


Female Azata-blooded Aasimar Diviner 4

Yeah, that works. El will eventually have a few ranks in all Knowledge skills.

This. Especially the last bit. Now imagine if we pop Outflank into the mix :-)

Sorry, Rakara. I realized too late that my narration was confusing. I meant that since he saw the elemental arrive, he was attacking the hostile creature, not the elemental.


| HP 36 | AC:18 | FF: 14 | T:14 | CMB +6 | CMD 20 | Fort:+6 | Ref:+9 | Will:+4 | Init:4 | Per +9/+11 | Ranger(Trapfinder)

Sorry! I saw chipped cobbles not cobblestones and thought he was attacking the elemental. It might be a reasonable assumption for Dumah considering we are being attacked by a summoner.


Male Osirian Oracle (Life) FC 4 HP:34 AC:15 INIT:+1 PERC:+3 F/R/W:+3/+2/+4

That is a big assumption :)


Male Osirian Oracle (Life) FC 4 HP:34 AC:15 INIT:+1 PERC:+3 F/R/W:+3/+2/+4

Could be an Oracle who focused on summoning...

After Dumah's performance this combat, somewhere there's a broad side of a barn heaving a sigh of relief. :P

Myron isn’t doing much better, despite flanking and sneak attacks.


Male Osirian Oracle (Life) FC 4 HP:34 AC:15 INIT:+1 PERC:+3 F/R/W:+3/+2/+4

At some point the fighters have to do their part and fight... :]


| HP 36 | AC:18 | FF: 14 | T:14 | CMB +6 | CMD 20 | Fort:+6 | Ref:+9 | Will:+4 | Init:4 | Per +9/+11 | Ranger(Trapfinder)

That would be a big assumption! Didn't mean an actual Summoner, just someone who has demonstrated that they can summon things.

I'm trying, but am realizing even when Rakara actually hits the damage is pretty paltry.

Like the third member of a dancing trio, Myron keeps perfect pace with Dumah and the beast, swinging his twin blades as he goes.

5-ft step into flanking position

Main hand (flanking + piranha strike + combat expertise: 1d20 + 8 + 2 - 1 ⇒ (2) + 8 + 2 - 1 = 11
Damage (piranha strike + sneak attack: 1d3 + 2 + 2 + 1d8 ⇒ (2) + 2 + 2 + (2) = 8

Off hand (flanking + piranha strike + combat expertise: 1d20 + 8 + 2 - 1 ⇒ (2) + 8 + 2 - 1 = 11
Damage (piranha strike + sneak attack: 1d3 + 2 + 1d8 ⇒ (2) + 2 + (2) = 6

It’s my dance metaphor in the fluff text. The roller is telling me it takes two to tango...

Unfortunately, unless you get Power Attack (and ideally Furious Focus as well), that feeling is only going to get worse. Without a scaling way to increase your damage modifier, you will hardly be able to scratch most high-level monsters.

With her high dex and Shield of Swings, Rakara is focused more on defense than offense. But ironically, that means many enemies will ignore her, because someone else is hurting them more. And at higher levels, she will get hit no matter how high her AC.

If you get Power Attack, Furious Focus and bump your strength to 16 or 18, you’ll notice a huge difference.


I'm off camping until Sunday. Go ahead and post everyone's actions up to Ajit's again. Hopefully you guys can pull off the comeback!


I'd be glad to draw up a replacement character if you'd like. If there are any parameters you'd like me to work within (crunch or fluff), just let me know.

Before the fight, we were assured that they were ready to intervene in case of fatalities. Let’s see if Dumah can’t pull through.


It seems the AP authors didn't factor in x4 crits. :P

Don't worry, I have your back! :)

El doesn't want any of the listed items. Not sure what (if anything) she'd want to buy either. Maybe a wand or two.

Myron will take 1x alchemist fire, 1x CLW potion and the MW thieves tools. I'll research what gear to shop for tonight.

Headband of intellect +2 is the best/most useful item a wizard can have. More spells, better DC, plus a free skill (Knowledge planes).

After that a wand of magic missles for sure.


Yeah, those things.


I will message Rakara and she if she wants anything before I move things along...

For lack of better ideas, Myron will probably seek to get his off-hand kukri enchanted to +1. Alternative suggestions welcome.

Ok, I have given Rakara long enough to respond. I will move things along tomorrow without any requests from her to consider. Unless someone wants to make one on her behalf.


Male Osirian Oracle (Life) FC 4 HP:34 AC:15 INIT:+1 PERC:+3 F/R/W:+3/+2/+4

Sorry for the absence. A week with stomach infection has reduced me to survival mode. Hopefully the antibiotics will bring me back around soon.


Male Osirian Oracle (Life) FC 4 HP:34 AC:15 INIT:+1 PERC:+3 F/R/W:+3/+2/+4

I am having internet issues. Thought they would be resolved sooner. Sorry for the silence on my end. I think I should be able to post tomorrow assuming things are resolved (which they say will be).
