I'm not entirely sure how "surprise bonuses" work normally I can stealth with other elves and halflings, but would it allow him to stealth with Ick? Because ranger stealth?

Elves gain a bonus to surprise opponents when in the wilderness or wastes of Athas. In desert or steppe encounters, when an elf or party of elves approaches a non-elven group, the opponents suffer a penalty of ~ 4 to their surprise rolls. Mixed parties cannot gain this advantage.

Doesn't appear so. Unless you're referring to a different ability.

It's just strange that two different people can stealth using those different abilities... but not while together

For what it's worth I don't think Cale can stealth, at least without using magic or psionics. It's just that if he's surprising something, like if he's walking up to a sleeping reptile, they are extra surprised.

Oops, when making my contact check for the jhakar I forgot the -4 for contacting a reptile mind. Still made the check, though.


XP Division!

Monster Conquest
—100 XP per person for killing jhakar
—20 bonus XP to Khar, Crow and Ick-tk-chk-ka per jhakar, so 100 bonus XP

Creative Ability Use
—100 bonus XP to Ick-tk-chk-ka for tracking the jhakar
—240 bonus XP to Ick-tk-chk-ka for using Enhanced Strength to overcome jhakar
—50 bonus XP to Cale for successful spell concealment
—30 bonus XP to Laurelin for Contact usage


Working on getting a new post up now.

By the way, did anyone pick up the bone brigandine chest armour piece?

I completely forgot about the new armor, still got post-holiday stress and other RL distractions. Doh. It probably would be helpful.

Cale would make sure it wasnt left behind though he can't use it himself


If no one else has preparations to make, I’ll start the encounter this afternoon.

cool beans with me, I was about to post something (metaphorically) kicking one of the more frontline capable characters to lead the way but this works too

Got some schoolwork to catch up on. Will try to get a post up this evening.

Sooo...


Yeah, really sorry about disappearing like that. I had a lot of schoolwork assignments to complete.

I'll get a post up shortly.

Yaaay


Cale, the three soldier wezers are the only ones left. And they're all inside the dome.

Are you sure you wish to attack them directly?

S%@& Paizo apparently ate my post
What I meant to say was that I hadn't realized we were our of things to hit close by and that I'd hold my actions for the eventuality that one of them comes to us or someone else decides to take point there


Alrighty then.

Also, heads-up: it's starting to become crunch time at school, so my posting rate may be erratic. I'll try to get posts in when I can, but it's getting to be that time of year when schoolwork is going to take precedence.

Just a quick note: I've been distracted by COVID related stuff (no one sick, but RL is fully impacted, heh). I should be back to more normal posting frequency in the next few days and I hope everyone is safe and healthy.


Alrighty! Time to wrap up this battle and move us along!

I spent a whopping 81 PSPs on contact, mindlink, and biofeedback. Not all on combat, 4 of the PSPs were for a failed power so I think I don't get credit for that.

Also cast bless, I forget if that counts. Still probably not enough to get to 3rd level though.

Laurelin spent a total of 11 PSPs on pheromone control.

He did indeed, crow hit them quite well.
Crow isn't blaming his weapon for poor performance and is instead just going out there and kicking ass
Cale could learn from Crow

Maybe at the oasis? If we can find some then we don't have to worry about food for a few days. Should be done leveling went from cleric level 2 to 3.

I can't find it in the original DSCS book, do gladiators use the warrior xp or the ranger/paladin chart? I need to go through and fix that and a few other things as well.

I assumed it was the same as the warrior one.

Quick search online says they use the paladin/ranger table. Can't access my books where I'm at right now.
