Well, I think I'm about to find out if I'm as clever as I think I am. Cue "Yakety Sax!"


Waiting to see what Arianna decides here before I resolve anything. It sounds like she and Orion may want to stealth ahead and maybe get a pot shot off.

DM, exactly how big are the dragon dogs?

Like, the sizes of dogs, or...?


Think of a kobold hunched over on all fours.

Er.. No.. Don't..

They're about that size though!

Oh fun. :P

I've got an idea, but I think I'd better spell out here so as to avoid any confusion.

Our frontliners are Brax, Raakuze, and Arianna. So, we set up Brax and Raakuze on either side of the street hiding behind buildings so that the Drakehounds don't see them while Arianna and Orion lead them into the ambush. Eska, Navarre, Cuth, and Linan will be with the wagon to watch over the kids, but just a street down from Brax and Raakuze. Once Arianna and Orion pass Brax and Raakuze, they come out and hit them from behind. Arianna will turn and hit them from the front while the others hit them from range.

With some luck we can kill them before they can hurt us too badly.

Thoughts?


Thanks for writing out the plan, Arianna. Really helps clear everything up.

If no one objects to it here, I will move ahead with those tactics this evening. Can I get stealth checks from Brax, Rakuuze, and Arianna though? It sounds like Brax will dismount his horse and leave the wagon with Eska and Navarre.

1) Arianna's plan sounds fine. (Even if it didn't, I wouldn't say anything, because intricate plans in PbP can take two weeks and things still would go FUBAR. Or even simple plans....)

2) I too imagined 4-hit die Ogre sized monsters. Kobolds on 4 legs I probably would've said just to advance loudly and stick an arrow in their gobs, so we should be fine. =)

Seems like are more action oriented fellows have other plans. :P

Well, I guess we'll be getting to know each other in a little while. That would be a good time to bring up issues we have with each others' modes of operation. Should be fun! :D

It's a solid plan but let Eska take Raakzue's place at lvl 1 there's not some much a difference between frontline / backline right now and she's better at stealth.

Don't underestimate me Arianna! I ain't no damsel that needs to be stowed with the women and children!

Raakuze is better at being bait.

Fair enough. Though I think our biggest liability this time is the clumsy elf. :P

Hi, folks!

Wanted to let you all know that this Thursday-Sunday, I'll be out of town attending a yearly gaming convention. I'll do my best to check in when I can and post if I'm able, but my time's going to be heavily occupied on those days. I'll be back and on my normal schedule on Monday

DM Red-You have my blessing to bot Brax if you need to.

Enjoy the con!


Those were likely wimpier than you expected, but it never hurts to be well prepared given you don't know how long it will be before you can rest!

I think what the GM means to say is "FLAWLESS VICTORY"

Love the WH40K reference. :)

Updating in short time...

I still have the first two DoW's on Steam. (Not the third one. They say if you want to play that, just watch the trailer again instead--it's more fun and you don't have to pay money to enable that sort of epic-level letdown.)

Sometimes I'll play 1 to hear the Commander just...talk.

"While the Enemies of the Emperor still draw breath there can be no peace."

No. No there can't. =)


"Walk softly, and carry a big gun."

I played a lot of DoW2 and still enjoy it now. Lining up Blood Ravens in cover as Eldar guardians approach, laser and assault rifle fire filling the air and the epic battle music revving up at the same time ... Great game. :)


My apologies for the delay. Life is getting in the way of my playing by post :P I'm tied up this evening but will continue updates tomorrow!

Yeah, I also have a spare crossbow... though funny enough until I level up it's slightly more average damage than the eldritch blast, though a bit less accurate.

Emphasis added.

Having actually had (pet) rats climbing around on me (and occasionally chew on my clothing)... given enough time and motivation rats can chew through steel, but study cloth (like denim or canvas) or leather will still only have little more than a few small holes in it in just a few seconds, even from a swarm.

So no, Orion, her pants should be still quite intact.


My apologies team, been a busy week so far, but an update will be up tomorrow morning.

Brax, you still have your second wind, right? I still have my two daily uses of Healing Light, but I'd rather save those for those that have no self-healing at all

Tis just a flesh wound!

I had to look up what that was. Yes, I still have it. Once it gets back around to my next turn, I'll use it, but I won't have access to it again until we've had a chance to rest.


Male NG Half-Elf Warlock (Celestial) | HP 10/10 | AC 13 | Init: +2 | Pass Perc: 12 | Saves: Str+0 Dex+2 Con+2 Int+0 Wis+2* Cha+5* | Spd 30ft | Healing Light:0/2 | Spells: 1st 1/1

Yeah, my Healing Light is the same way. I'll get my one spell slot back after a short rest and can cast a CLW with it... when we can spare the time for a short rest.


Male NG Half-Elf Warlock (Celestial) | HP 10/10 | AC 13 | Init: +2 | Pass Perc: 12 | Saves: Str+0 Dex+2 Con+2 Int+0 Wis+2* Cha+5* | Spd 30ft | Healing Light:0/2 | Spells: 1st 1/1

Well, guess I'll be using one of my spells on Brax anyway. Terrible time to get a 1. :/


Male Dwarf NG Champion Fighter 3 |AC:16| HP:19/34|Passive Perception:14|Init +1| Saves-Str +3, Dex +1, Con +4, Int 0, Wis +2, Cha 0

You're right, Red. It's 1d10 plus fighter level. I'll get it fixed, but yes two hit points are better than one any day.

Sorry Orion, I was thinking 5 instead of 6 for some reason, so when I got to two names I just stopped... brain fart.

I think Arianna is easily the elf that is the worst shot with a bow. Seriously, how many times has she missed in a row?

That said, I'm hoping that her bluff to cover the miss works.


I failed the DC with the leader, but succeeded with the guards, and I felt it made sense to have it work out like this :)


By the way, I hope the general spottiness of my updates isn't too bothersome to anyone. I try to update daily, but it's not always possible for me.. And honestly summer's in full effect right now so I have been spending a lot more time outdoors, especially given that weather like this is very short lived in Toronto. Hope the more relaxed pace that we have been keeping is acceptable to you guys.

Summer!? Outdoors!? I demand keep this campaign updated on a minute-to-minute basis while you write your Star Wars vs Star Trek fanfic in your Mother's poorly lit basement as is only appropriate.

I'm fine with the pace this game is going, but I'm really having a lot of fun! This was only the second game I'd ever done in PbP. In the two months since, I've gotten into three more PbP games. Two of those three are going around the same pace as this one and the remaining one is going pretty quickly than the others. Having fun with all of them, though, and I'm pretty good with those games being my limit on how many things to get into.

Same here, gives us time to flesh out our characters and get them into deeper trouble. I'm fully expecting Eska to give Arianna hell for this little episode. :)


Male NG Half-Elf Warlock (Celestial) | HP 10/10 | AC 13 | Init: +2 | Pass Perc: 12 | Saves: Str+0 Dex+2 Con+2 Int+0 Wis+2* Cha+5* | Spd 30ft | Healing Light:0/2 | Spells: 1st 1/1

I'm not always finding the time to update regularly myself, so I certainly have no complaints about the pace.

Arianna, I expect Eska will be the one getting hell more than you :p

Do we dare take a short rest before we go back into the fire?

I would think we heroes earned it


Male Dwarf NG Champion Fighter 3 |AC:16| HP:19/34|Passive Perception:14|Init +1| Saves-Str +3, Dex +1, Con +4, Int 0, Wis +2, Cha 0

I would say have the priest to heal what memebers of the party need healing and we take a short rest to get our class abilities back.


CG Female Moon Elf Bard 1 HP: 18/18 | AC: 14 | Saves: STR +3 DEX* +5 CON +1 INT +1 WIS +1 CHA* +5 | Perception: +5, Investigate: +3, Insight: +2 | Inspiration (d6): 1/3 | Spells: 1st 0/3 | Arrows: 5

I'm actually in two minds about this. I think taking some time to heal up and regroup would be good, but at the same time, I think we should find out the situation and help any trapped Greenesters soonest.

Maybe we can see if there's any information that was gleaned during our sortie while we rest up?


Male NG Half-Elf Warlock (Celestial) | HP 10/10 | AC 13 | Init: +2 | Pass Perc: 12 | Saves: Str+0 Dex+2 Con+2 Int+0 Wis+2* Cha+5* | Spd 30ft | Healing Light:0/2 | Spells: 1st 1/1

Yeah Arianna, that's how I feel. Would be nice to rest, but an hour could make the difference between life and death for the people still out there. On the other hand, we are of no use to anyone if we die.

I'm going to fully agree with Brax here. Have the priest heal all that he can, and we take a short rest.

We can't save anyone if we're dead.
