Can you give me an estimate how long it'll take Ezren to climb down off the roof? I'm debating whether it's worth burning my use of Arcane Bond for the day for another dimension door... From the entrance to the curtain looks like a move action to me; the question is how long does it take Ezren to get down off the roof.


Silver ! Gold

Just guesstimating as the height of the towers is not a part of this encounter.... Assuming you plan to run back in and choose your dimdoor target to facilitate this (say ending in the corner above area 5). Move action (& climb check) down + move action to front of tower double move to door 10 feet of room entrance... 2 Rounds. That sound reasonable?


As the nasty starts flowing from the shattered tank, Merisiel's nose crinkles in disgust. "Oh, my gods, do these freaks drink this stuff?" she gags as the ooze flows towards then lashes out at her. "Ow! What the hells are wrong with these people!"

Both the slam & grab hit.

Aura fortitude save: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (9) + 5 = 14
Ooze touch fortitude save: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (7) + 5 = 12

Merisiel HP count: 48


Silver ! Gold

Merisiel begins to heave at the smell, but then her the stench changes to something sweet. Something pleasant and almost... desirable.

Axia: does not break grapple
Valeditoros: attacks G1
PBP Ezren: moves to A, dimdoors to roof.
GenRo: tanglefoots G2
Brass gearsmen: G1 attacks V, G2 attacks glass

Beggars: moves only (still non-combatants so far)
Kyra: <=we are here now also fort save needed.
Axia becomes non-combatant, Valeros on deck.

Ezren spends the next couple of rounds getting back to the fight scene. Hope you guys are able to move forward a little bit more quickly :)


Fort Save: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (6) + 7 = 13

looks like I need to see what happens cos that looks awfully like a fail >.<

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Gritting his teeth against the painful wound and the worse shock, Valeros continues attacking the gearman in front of him.

"What the hell ARE these things?" he calls out as his blades make a couple more dents in the metal man.

Kyras lunch begins climbing her throat and adding its own terrible smell to the odor of the room. she is sickened for 10 rounds (still your turn for R2 :).

Valeros' swords cut into the men made of armor and its limbs begin to droop. The light in its eye dims, then disappears. A slow whirring comes to a stop and the creature tumbles to the floor.


Fearing that she has been poisoned, Kyra uses her turn to draw her antitoxin and drink it, giving her +5 to poison based Fort saves for the next hour. Suspecting there may be secondary saves, she mutters a quick prayer to Sarenrae to guide her, hoping the antitoxin will suffice.

She then prepares to draw her scimitar and engage this weird slime that assails her and her allies.

"Ack! Poison, use your antitoxins if you have them!"


Jumping in line ahead of Ezren, who's otherwise occupied with running back to us...

sniff, sniff..."Actually... this stuff doesn't smell so bad up close like this... kinda like... cookies right out of the oven...", Merisiel declares to the room at large. Of course, pleasant scent or not, the stuff is trying to eat her, so she has no intention of standing around and letting it do so...

Standard action: she makes an Escape Artist check to break free of the things oozy clutch.

1d20 + 15 ⇒ (3) + 15 = 18

The target DC is the Cockstail's CMD. If that check fails, she simply sighs and uses her move action to draw her rapier. If that beats it, she then uses her move action to make an Acrobatics check to get the hell out of the way without getting whacked. The floor being difficult terrain now, that means I'd be traveling at half speed, and a normal Acrobatics check means I move at half speed as well, so I'll be doing this with a +10 to the check DC to at least let me move a full 15 feet. Fortunately I don't think either the goo or the gearsman have a killer CMD, so... yeah, wish me luck.

1d20 + 20 ⇒ (11) + 20 = 31

Target goals are the CMDs of both the ooze and the remaining gearman, +10. Merisiel is going to head 15 feet straight north, to put her directyl NE of the "4".

[EDIT] Argh. looks like I failed the easier check and would have made the harder one. Grumble. Lovely. mental note to make preliminary checks first before typing out a lengthy followup action, in the future.

"But I don't CARE how nice it smells, someone get over here and KILL this thing!" She draws her rapier.


Silver ! Gold

The first gearsmen whirs back to action and at the sword wielder with the humming mancatcher. The second gearsmen moves over to the fighter, but takes its time getting through the water.

The cocktail stretches and slams the rogue with a globular psuedopod to maintain its grip on the rogue. The oil on its slick skin, burns into the rogue sucking all the liquid from her body.

One of the addicts sees an opening and runs up to the ooze looking for a free hit. Ironically getting only a miss.

G1 v V: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (18) + 10 = 28, dmg: 1d2 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7+ electrical: 1d6 ⇒ 2 Sorry about the confusion, G1 still up I missed hardness and recalculated damage), G2 too slow in difficult terrain.
egelsee maintains grapple: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (5) + 16 = 21, doing con: 1d2 ⇒ 1
addict: 1d20 - 5 ⇒ (4) - 5 = -1

Valeditoros: attacks G1
PBP Ezren: climbs down roof (make a check?) & runs toward door.
GenRo: bakes cookies
Brass gearsmen: G1 attacks V, G2 moves through water
Egelsee Cocktail: fluid drains GenRo
Beggars (3): 1 moves and swings at egelsee
Kyra: <=we are here now

Kyra: draws potion & drinks it
Axia becomes non-combatant, (nice job)


Kyra moves drawing her scimitar to engage the oozy critter in the hope it falls quickly, or at minimum, releases her ally, actively seeking a flanking position if possible.

She strikes out at the beast, (Standard melee attack)

Attack Roll: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (8) + 8 = 16

That will be 2 higher if I can get flanking position with one of the beggars / my party members.

Damage would be: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 3 = 5

GM Note - Kyra crits on 18-20's and when she does, she does additional fire damage with the scimitar - doesn't apply this go unfortunately. Oh, and Kyra wants a new dice machine, this one seems like it's forgotten numbers 10 and above >.<

"Foul abomination, time to die..."


Male Human Wizard 7

Climb: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (9) + 2 = 11
You didn't declare a DC, but a failure probably means falling, which shouldn't slow me down too badly.

If Ezren reaches the battle while I'm incommunicado on Shabbat:

Ezren will be stationing himself by the curtain closest to the entrance door (SE of the tank). His area spells would be horrible under the circumstances, so he opens with scorching ray, giving him two ranged touch attacks.

Scorching Ray 1: 1d20 + 3 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 3 + 2 = 11, Damage if hits: 4d6 ⇒ (3, 3, 3, 1) = 10
Scorching Ray 2: 1d20 + 3 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 3 + 2 = 7, Damage if hits: 4d6 ⇒ (1, 1, 5, 3) = 10


Silver ! Gold

Valeros now has two gearsman near him, but with their long weapons they stand just back far enough apart that he cannot hit both.
G1 is now backed against the wall, V can 5 ft. to either one, they currently have flanking on V.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16

Willing to trust his ability to defend himself, Valeros steps up toward the one he's been attacking and lays into it again with his blade.

"A little help here? I don't want to hog all the glory!" he calls out.

Mechanics:

+2 longsword: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (5) + 12 = 17
Damage: 1d8 + 8 ⇒ (8) + 8 = 16

+2 longsword: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (3) + 7 = 10

+1 short sword: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (10) + 7 = 17
Damage: 1d6 + 6 ⇒ (3) + 6 = 9


"If I could, I so would, Val..." Merisiel replies, once again trying to contort her body out of the ooze's grasp.

Escape Artist check: 1d20 + 15 ⇒ (7) + 15 = 22

Okay, I THINK that gets her free from the ooziness. Going with the rest of my actions assuming that beats its CMD.

With a rather nasty-sounding wet 'POP', she wrenches herself loose from the pseudopod. She glances around, uncertain of where to swing next, when seeing a huffing Ezren run back into the room, she makes up her mind.

"Ezren, spot Kyra with this thing? I KNOW I can skewer the brass monkeys, but not sure how good pointy things are against blobs that don't have kidneys to poke!"

And with that, she runs as best she can across the slimy floor to try and lend a hand to the fighter.

I'm a little fuzzy on positions at the moment, but from my current position (2 S and 1 E of the "4"), my goal is to close the distance between myself and the gearsmen as much as possible. With 15 feet of movement available to me, ideally I'd like to go diagonally NE one square, then one north and one east to get around the corner of the tank. That should put me due west of the "4". Not dealing with an acrobatics check, so I'll at least be provoking an AoO from the cocktail, possibly from one or both gearsmen as well. With her Mobility feat, this puts her AC at 27 for purposes of provoking. If I can't do any of that because I'm running through something, then feel free to adjust my movement with that ultimate goal in mind. Oh, and just for extra comfort she draws a knife while moving, holding it in her other hand.

Kyra will continue to attack the slimy thing unless healing is called for. So, when you get to her turn, the attack and damage rolls are...

Attack 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (9) + 8 = 17 +2 if i retain flanking.
Damage 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (3) + 3 = 6

Oh dear, sub 10 roll again, going for a record!

The gearsman have Valeros between them now and press the attack. The Egelsee stretches out to the nearest human with two pseudopods. The man stops moving and the creature engulfs it. The other addicts close with their source while Kyra does the same with her scimitar.

Curaigh, does my scorching ray really hit on a 6+5? I thought the ooze's touch AC was 15.

It grappled losing its dex (+4). Kind of tired/stupid, did I do it wrong? :)


Male Human Wizard 7

Oh, cool! Missed that. Don't you worry - I'm the one trying to get a handle on the mechanics here; it's been a looooong time since I've used combat rules, and even then we mostly fudged everything.

Valeros, starting to get annoyed with the growing accumulation of wounds, continues swinging wildly at the gearsman he's been bashing.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Last rounds AoOs from both the ooze and G2 miss the living hell out of Merisiel.

Merisiel, eyes glinting with long-held frustration that FINALLY is about to get payoff, maneuvers her way past one gearsman and instead slips around to face the other one. Right opposite of where Valeros stands swinging.

If I've got this right, 15 feet of movement should just be enough to get me to flanking position on G1. This will again incur AoOs from both G1 and G2, but I'll take it.

And then she jabs her rapier firmly up the gearsman's a#~#!%$.

+1 keen rapier: 1d20 + 11 + 1 + 2 ⇒ (14) + 11 + 1 + 2 = 28
Damage: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 3 = 5 +4d6 ⇒ (5, 3, 6, 6) = 20


Kyra continues to hack away at the slimey.

Attack 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (9) + 8 = 17 + 2 more for flanking if possible
Damage 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 3 = 9

After the attack, I start to 5 foot step around my opponent to get towards Valeros with healing in mind.

omg, another sub 10 roll - this d20 is cursed, cursed I say!


Silver ! Gold

The first gearsman swings at the closing rogue. Then shudders as her rapier hits some internal important bits. Flanked by the two adventurers it has no choice but to move then swing at the fighter. The second gearsman steps up and does the same.

G1 AoO: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (18) + 10 = 28, dmg: 1d2 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6 plus zap: 1d6 ⇒ 2
G1 v V: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (16) + 10 = 26, dmg: 1d2 + 5 ⇒ (1) + 5 = 6 plus zap: 1d6 ⇒ 2
G2 v V: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (11) + 10 = 21, dmg: 1d2 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7 plus zap: 1d6 ⇒ 4

The Egelsee drains the fluids from the creature it has grappled. Two addicts again attempt to hit it. Though the mindless creature cannot be flanked, Kyra's scimitar fairs much better.

Egelsee v addict grapple: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (1) + 11 = 12, con drain: 1d2 ⇒ 2
addict v Egelsee: 1d20 - 5 ⇒ (17) - 5 = 12
addict v Egelsee: 1d20 - 5 ⇒ (3) - 5 = -2

not sure if it would continue to drain fluids from a dead person, but will stick with it as it feeds off the fluids itself.

Does that make sense?The two of you are against the wall, one will have to move or both will have to five foot to re-establish flanking. This will mean a delay on V's part, a ready on M's part but is doable at level 7.

Merisiel gives a grunt as the gearman's mancatcher gives her a thwak as she gets in position, but is still satisfied that she managed to do a lot more damage in return. As it steps away, she cries "Keep 'im between us, Val!", while preparing to take another step to get behind the hunk of junk.

Valeros will happily wait a moment to get an advantage -- his wounds are starting to add up.

Valeros continues to hack wildly at his foe. It's easy enough to make contact, but he's not sure if the many dents he's putting in its armor is actually doing any damage to it.

"Stupid, stupid monsters, fighting in stupid, stupid enclosed spaces with stupid, stupid bystanders," Ezren mutters to himself.

Ezren casts haste on himself and his teammates.

Shucks, I should have done that earlier.

RPG Superstar 2010 Top 32, 2011 Top 4

Minmaxer time! Just want to point out some stuff that might get overlooked. So, I assume that means Valeros delayed till my initiative count, I five foot stepped and readied an action to attack as soon as he five-foot stepped, and then we both went stabbity on G1 at the same time? That's how that works? As long as we both get flanking, sweet. However, since that means we BOTH go after Ezren, I'd like to point out that Valeros benefits from haste, now. So with the +1 bonus added in, three of his attacks, instead of one, should hit. Also, he has a trait that gives him +1 damage when flanking. Altogether, this means that instead of doing 9 damage that doesn't even make it past hardness, he just did 10, 13, and 11 damage, which means 4 damage after hardness? Plus, since he's full attacking, he now gets to take one more swing from the haste

Merisiel grins as the benefits of Ezren's spell wash over her. "Ohh, I LOVE when you cast that."
She takes a step to place herself on the gearsman's right side, then waits for Valeros to take a similar step to its left. Then she presses her own attack while Valeros makes like a buzzsaw across from her.

Full attack!

A tiny splash sounds in the chamber as a metal gear lands in the puddle of water. In the echo of Ezran's spell the raining of metal is easy to hear. With expert timing and precision teamwork Valeros and Merisol reduce the first gearsman to small metal and broken gears. The second gearsman swings at the rogue.

G1 v M: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (18) + 10 = 28, dmg: 1d2 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7 plus zap: 1d6 ⇒ 2

Can somebody recap precisely where the PCs and the two foes are positioned? I've lost track. Thanks :)


Silver ! Gold

Good question I might have lost some as well in relation to the room. :) Hopefully next year the sandbox announced last PaizoCon will be up :)

M is 1 ne of "4"
V is 3 e and 1 n of "4" (flanking with M)
G2 is se of "4"
addict1 is 3s of "4"
addict2 is 4s of "4" (flanking with K)
Egelsee is 4 s and 1 e of "4" (near the south door)
K is 4s and 1e of "4"
Ezren is 4s and 4 east of "4" though you could have gone an addtional 20' after entering the room if you want to re-position your self.

Kyra is up, but others can take the top of the next initiative's actions if they want to keep things moving.

What's the current ruling on movement? Is the tank goo still considered difficult terrain, or is it just bumped down to the -2 to acrobatics?


simply M Draco Electricus author 2, herper 4, canine exerciser 9,

Acrobatics penalty, we can try it both ways & compare got they play


Before doing my rolls, can I check if the grab counts as needing a save too, i.e. does it count as a hit? - I'm fairly sure the 12 and 13 miss, but the 26 I think is a hit - I will check when I get back to my home laptop and character sheet.


Silver ! Gold

The advantage to pre-gens is that I also have a copy (or you can add AC/perceptions/ to the characters profile under race/gender).
Both are misses, so the grab and fort saves are not needed.

"Rinse, wash and repeat with metal man number two, Valeros..."[b], merisiel says, wincing from said metal man's last blow. She holds her rapier up in response to its mancatcher zap, showing it the residue of its buddy smeared along her blade. [b]"You're next."

Since Val & I are now on the same initiative count, I'm going to hold off until he moves in. (Assuming he moves in; don't wnat to speak for Jacob, but just making a reasonable guess.) Then she follows through with a series of tumbles and rolls to avoid the gearsman's attacks as she closes in to get up close & personal, positioning herself directly across from wherever Valeros positions himself. (With the extra 30 feetof movement from haste, I should have enough to place myself pretty much in any square next to it, even moving half speed from Acrobatics.) Once she's in place, another rapier jab.

Acrobatics: 1d20 + 20 - 2 ⇒ (18) + 20 - 2 = 36 (vs. gearsman's CMD to avoid AoO)
+1 keen rapier: 1d20 + 11 + 2 + 1 + 1 ⇒ (8) + 11 + 2 + 1 + 1 = 23
Damage: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (6) + 3 = 94d6 ⇒ (2, 1, 2, 6) = 11

Merisiel HP count: 24

About to head out for a hike; can update tonight or feel free to DMPC me. Will indeed move in and attack.

"Sounds good to me, Merisel!"

Valeros steps in again against the other gearman, willing to take a few scratches if it gives him a chance with the android.

Where did she go? I hope we're not looking for her because our friend's interested. That'd be a shame. I'd hate to have to go to all this trouble only to break his heart.

His swords flashes again, the sound of metal on metal filling the room as he puts a few more small dents in his new foe. sigh; crap rolls again

Mechanics:

+2 Longsword: 1d20 + 12 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 12 + 2 = 26
1d8 + 8 ⇒ (3) + 8 = 11

+2 Longsword: 1d20 + 7 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 7 + 2 = 21
1d8 + 8 ⇒ (3) + 8 = 11

+1 short sword: 1d20 + 11 + 2 ⇒ (14) + 11 + 2 = 27
1d6 + 6 ⇒ (2) + 6 = 8

+1 short sword: 1d20 + 6 + 2 ⇒ (7) + 6 + 2 = 15
1d6 + 6 ⇒ (6) + 6 = 12


Silver ! Gold

The second-and now only-gearsman finds itself in a small bind. It steps five foot back (nearly to the ooze) and swings at the rogue. Rather than try to damage the creature it decides preventing the nimble pair from getting the best of it.

G2 v M's touch: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (9) + 10 = 19, grapple: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (12) + 9 = 21

The ooze continues toward the bright life of the cleric, looking for a better meal than it has had in years, even as the meals it has grown used to attempt to feed themselves to it.

Egelsee v Kyra: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (11) + 9 = 20, dmg: 2d4 + 3 ⇒ (1, 2) + 3 = 6,
Egelsee v Kyra: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (9) + 9 = 18, dmg: 2d4 + 3 ⇒ (1, 1) + 3 = 5 plus grab: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (8) + 11 = 19, need fort save for each hit (remember sickened).

addict v Egelsee: 1d20 - 5 ⇒ (15) - 5 = 10
addict v Egelsee: 1d20 - 5 ⇒ (1) - 5 = -4

INI

PBP Ezren: crossbows egelsee
GenRo: attacks G2
Valeros: attacks G2
Brass gearsmen: G2 grapples M
Egelsee Cocktail: attacks K
Addicts (2): attack Egelsee
Kyra: <= we are here now.

last round:
PBP Ezren: castes haste
GenRo: readies, attacks G1
Valeros: delays, kills G1
Brass gearsmen: G2 attack M
Egelsee Cocktail: drops addict, attacks K
Addicts (2): attack Egelsee
Kyra: attacks ooze 5 foot closer to V


1 hit, 1 miss

Fort Save: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (13) + 7 = 20 _5 for antitoxin if it's poison based

56 - 6 = 50 hp

Grab gets me too :(

I'll continue to stab at the thing grabbing me... but as I'm grappled, I can't do a double scimitar attack as that would be a two handed attack - so just the one attack then... (I can't escape artist as Im not trained, so there's only one way out for me I think, hack it to death)

1d20 + 9 ⇒ (15) + 9 = 24, Damage: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (1) + 3 = 4

My attack suffers -2 from the grapple, so that will actually be a 22 not a 24.

"Memo to self," Ezren mutters, anachronistically, "Invest in an enchanted crossbow sometime, why don't you?"

Attack 1: 1d20 + 6 + 1 ⇒ (12) + 6 + 1 = 19
Damage on hit 1: 1d8 ⇒ 2
Attack 2: 1d20 + 6 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 6 + 1 = 12
Damage on hit 2: 1d8 ⇒ 2


Merisiel grits her teeth and works to squirm out of the mancatcher's grasp.

Escape artist check: 1d20 + 15 ⇒ (14) + 15 = 29 vs. gearman's CMD.

Assuming that breaks her free, she five foot steps back underneath the mancatcher'sthreat range, once again getting up in the gearman's grill. She drops the dagger she's been holding in her off hand and pulls out a vial of alchemist's fire. Just in case.

If I'm right on postions, G2 is now 2 S and 1 E of the 4; Merisiel's step should put her 1 S and 2 E of the 4, right on one of G2's corners.

"See if we can't back this guy up against Kyra and her slimy buddy back there; once he's stuck where he can't move, he's dead."


Silver ! Gold

Like the cleric, Merisal is grappled by her opponent. Unlike the cleric, she escapes its grasp and continues fighting.

... starts to suspect, on the history of attack rolls, that the d20 in use is, in fact, one of those weird ones that go 0-9 and... 0-9 - it would explain so much...

For when you get to Kyra, to speed up play... she continues to hack away... unless someone moves beside her for healing

{if attacking)
Fort Save: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (8) + 7 = 15 +5 is antitoxin bonus counts

Attack: 1d20 + 9 - 2 ⇒ (10) + 9 - 2 = 17 (-2 because of grapple), Dam: 1d6 + 3 ⇒ (1) + 3 = 4

(if healing)
casts a cure spell defensively the size of which is based on the urgency of the healing requested.

"Keep that stuff away from me. I can't stab it until I'm done cutting this thing up!"

He chops away again at the gearsman, growing frustrated as it continues to block most of his swings. "By Calistria's cleavage, after we're done here, I'm going to find whoever made these things and if they're as hard to hit with my sword!"

Mechanics:

Assuming I still have flanking
+2 Longsword: 1d20 + 12 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 12 + 2 = 20
1d8 + 8 ⇒ (7) + 8 = 15

+2 Longsword: 1d20 + 7 + 2 ⇒ (20) + 7 + 2 = 29
+2 Longsword crit confirm: 1d20 + 7 + 2 ⇒ (7) + 7 + 2 = 16
1d8 + 8 ⇒ (6) + 8 = 14

+1 short sword:1d20 + 11 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 11 + 2 = 15
1d6 + 6 ⇒ (3) + 6 = 9

+1 short sword: 1d20 + 6 + 2 ⇒ (6) + 6 + 2 = 14
1d6 + 6 ⇒ (1) + 6 = 7

Seriously? 1 20, but everything else is 7 or lower...
