To all my games, two pieces of news:

1) I'm currently job hunting, though that is going well. That said, I might have less free time than usual.

2) I'll be at a gaming convention this weekend, so I'll likely be less active online.


Sorry guys. Can't update today.

Sorry for the long silence! I'm catching up on threads, and I hopefully will be back in the flow of things from now on.

Kudos to the GM for this wicked problem, and Halgrin for a solid plan!


A heads up, due to a vacation, I will be sporadic at best form March 25th until April 5th. I'll post as able but it will almost certainly be far less than normal.

A heads up. I won't be available to post at all on Friday, and I likely won't have much availability until Sunday evening or Monday evening.


Wrinil: Yeah the pirate thing is mostly a little sidequest that you guys didn't necessarily want to go on. ;) If deal with it successfully, you'll be on your way in Chult pretty soon.

Critically important question before my next action.

What are the relative positions of Horat, Pike, and other sailors?

With that low insight, I'm guessing Halgrin is charging and we're going into initiative.


I think so too. I'll get that started later today.

So...are we ignoring that 1 sq = 10ft?


No let's stick with that. It fits the size of the ship. I shrunk some of the images down so they don't look so freakishly large. If there's a lot of confusion about who's sharing squares, I'll make some kind of adjustment to make it work.

Seeing a distinct problem, Wrinil quickly says a prayer and aglobe of silence decends on the middle of the boat

Cast Silence so that the lower deck may not know what is happening.


Wrinil:

The pirates belowdeck turn and look at Wrinil as he speaks his magic words and waves his hands. "What was that all about?" They don't seem to have noticed any effect of the spell yet.

below deck:
Lie: 1d20 - 1 ⇒ (19) - 1 = 18

"Just helping out." Wrinil says nonchalantly. Did I just lie?! Oh my gods! Oh! I hope it works!


Cool. But is there a reason you're posting this in discussion? XD

1 person marked this as a favorite.

I was recently in a game where the boss seemed to be doing some unfair things so to prevent that I'll let you know how he's doing this as you see things come up (wouldn't want to warn you about something before you observe it):

1. Battlemaster fighter
2. Tunnel fighter fighting style
3. He's higher level than you guys and has a couple of nice pieces of gear but that's more of a quantitative than qualitative thing
4. He has one free feat to make up for the fact that you guys get to be gestalt and he doesn't. You haven't seen that one in play yet but it won't be too hard to figure out.

Whelp, I'm in trouble. Down to 1 HP, can't really withdraw, and can't cast spells. Anybody have ideas? Because if not, my best bet next round is probably either healer's kit/healing potion or dodge action and hope that's enough to get me away from him (though if he gets lucky on his rolls, I'll be unconscious. And with my low AC, he doesn't really need to get that lucky).

We'll try making his life miserable enough to force him to deal with us, maybe? I think I put a noticeable hole in him, so he'll probably be distracted now.

I noticed my position on the map was returned to its original position. I get that polearm master would stop me from fully closing in on Pike, but why would it mean my PC didn't move at all?

Sentinel reduces your speed to 0 ft for the rest of the round if you're hit by an AoO from the sentinel. So you're stopped when you enter his reach, 10 ft away from him.

Aren't the squares 10 feet though? Shouldn't I be adjacent to Pike?

Halgrin would have been hit when he was 10ft away from Pike, the representation wouldn't help.

Damn, I thought Horat was still up. 0/28 HP in reality.

...well this isn't going according to plan.


Well I think the thing not going according to plan was my idea to have the squares take 10 ft so they would better represent the length of the ship. :P I forgot they were 10 ft myself over the busy Easter weekend. So yes we should represent Halgrin as closer to Pike with the understanding that he's 5 ft away.

Okay, in that case I moved Halgrin's token adjacent to Pike's. Please adjust the other enemies on the field to represent how they would have moved to counter him.

Hmm, I'm a little torn on if Olivia should hang around for invisibility or not. If it gets pulled off, it would be useful. But I kind of feel like she's likely to get knocked unconscious again when the enemies take their turn unless she does well on a deception check. But also, waiting that extra round is basically an extra round that everybody else needs to survive or an extra round during which the captain can try to get back within reach of Olivia. :/ Not sure if anybody else has thoughts.

Olivia is pretty squishy, and that invisibility could really help her survivability if this fight continues. I say avail of it, and cast anything helpful you can think of.

@GM: Is Horat still where he collapsed? And will it be possible for him to rise and strike without Pike realising it until the attack? I doubt a sneak attack is possible but if I can avoid an AOO I'd be happy.


Yes Horat can still attack without the AoO as he was 10 ft from Pike, who hasn't moved.

I think my 10 ft squares idea here worked poorly so let's just change to 5 ft squares? Is that alright with you guys? It makes the boat unrealistically small but we can just ignore that.


Male Human Cleric/Wizard Gestalt 4 | HP 23/23 | AC 10 | Saving Throws - Str (+1), Dex (+1), Con (+0), Int (+6), Wis (+6), Cha (+1) | Passive Perc - 16 | Init +1 | C1st Lvl Spl - 4/4 | C2nd Lvl Spl - 3/3 | W1st Lvl Spl - 4/4 | W2nd Lvl Spl - 3/3 |

If that is the case, then Liv would be completely safe staying where she was.
