Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie lands on the ground and watches the two remaining giants leave, Sophie's Choice trained on them (they don't know it's empty, and after Blayze's display, she's sure they don't want to risk it). Once they are gone, she reverts back to her normal self, the harpy feathers melting away, and wings retracting into her back. She empties the spent shells and replaces them with new ones, taking care not to manhandle the damaged weapon. It's going to take some work when they make camp to get her baby back up to proper working order again.
"I agree with Alessia, we shouldn't have let them go. But I defer to our illustrious leaders," she motions to Karrin and Justin. "So is that it? We burn this place to the ground and let the prisoners go to resume their tending to the forest?"

Sophi whats the duration of your haste?

9 rounds
With haste, consider yourself in range to shoot

Should I just use the last unused roll, or roll again?

Sophie will fly into the camp and unleash Sophie's Choice at the closest Giant. I couldn't see a new map so I'm not sure where she'll end up or shoot to, sorry
"How many of theses Giants are there?" she screeches.

Move Action: Fly (up to) 80' into the camp
First Shot: 1d20 + 12 - 2 ⇒ (19) + 12 - 2 = 29
Damage: 1d8 + 1 ⇒ (5) + 1 = 6

This is her last chambered round, so after this she'll either have to reload, or take it to melee


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Spohie smiles a cruel avian grin as the Giant falls in pieces from the sky. She then beats her wings forcefully, propelling herself forward towards the Giant camp and the thought of more death to come.

Full Round Action: Fly 120' back along the road towards the Giant camp. This should put me about 10' into Map 2 (if the two connect), in about J2.


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Both rocks missed, as Sophie's AC is currently 23 due to her Shock Shield

The rocks narrowly avoid hitting her, and she manages to stay aloft. The pitch of her avian screech rises in intensity as she raises Sophie's Choice for what she hopes is the final time against this foe and squeezes off another two rounds at the grinning Giant.

Hover DC 15: 1d20 + 1d6 + 6 ⇒ (13) + (6) + 6 = 25 Using Inspiration

First Shot: 1d20 + 10 - 4 ⇒ (3) + 10 - 4 = 9 -14 for firing into Melee
Second Shot: 1d20 + 5 - 4 ⇒ (10) + 5 - 4 = 11 -14 for firing into Melee
Damage First Shot: 1d8 ⇒ 7
Damage Second Shot: 1d8 ⇒ 1


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie pulls up in front of the sizzling Giant and once more raises Sophie's Choice at it, screeching her fury at the creature's ability to survive.

Hover DC 15: 1d20 + 1d6 + 6 ⇒ (5) + (4) + 6 = 15 Using Inspiration
First Shot: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (3) + 10 = 13
Second Shot: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21
Damage First Shot: 1d8 ⇒ 5
Damage Second Shot: 1d8 ⇒ 5

Just remember shots use Touch AC


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie's wings beat furiously as she rises further into the air, angling herself to get off a shot at the Giant that crossed in front of her.

Move Action: Fly forward and up to I15
Standard Action: Shoot Giant in F18: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (17) + 11 = 28
Damage: 1d8 ⇒ 1

She screeches in Avian fury as the bullet grazes the Giant's shoulder, a small spray of blood showering down onto the ground beneath.


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Hissing at the downed Giant, Sophie takes to the air again, flying so that she is above the others racing along the path.

Fly speed of 30' means that with Haste that jumps to 60', which means 120' per round at full tilt. She will keep pace with the others though (obviously not Hamar, who has "Flashed" ahead of us all!)

dont you roll 4d8 instead of multiplying??

You are correct once again... It's been far too long since I've played :'(

Critical Damage: 3d8 ⇒ (2, 5, 8) = 15
So 21 damage in total

Do guns crit? You have a natty 20 in there

Oh yeah, they do! *forehead slap*

Crit Confirmation: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (2) + 8 = 10
If that hits, which I very highly doubt, I have a x4 Crit Modifier, so that would be 24 damage instead of 6 for that hit.


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie raises Sophie's Choice at the closest Giant blow her and fires at it, letting loose a hail of bullets.

Full Attack Action
Fire at Giant 1: 1d20 + 13 ⇒ (16) + 13 = 29
Fire at Giant 1: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (20) + 8 = 28
Fire at Giant 1: 1d20 + 13 ⇒ (1) + 13 = 14
The last shot was a Misfire - Sophie's Choice now has the Broken Condition

Damage: 1d8 ⇒ 1
Damage: 1d8 ⇒ 6

She lets out an avian screech of rage as her last shot causes a fizzing plume of smoke to issue from the end of her weapon. She concentrates for a second and then streaks forward to land behind the Giant, brandishing Sophie's Folly in anticipation of retaliation.
Swift Action: Activate her Quick Runner's Shirt to move to O34

Sophie pulls a bunch of small vials from one of the smaller pockets of her bag and drinks them one by one before Merle casts her Haste.
Drinks Longshot, Shock Shield, Monstrous Physique I (Harpy), and Invisibility. All last for 9 minutes (Which I'm assuming will be enough for the whole Giant battle... I'm hoping it won't last for longer than 90 Rounds!)

The others see a ghostly shield appear in front of her for a second and then fade, followed by her morphing into a feathered woman with wings, and then fading from view.
While invisible, she will call both Weapons to her hands and then take to the air once the Haste is active. She follows above the others until she hears the Giants call out, and then races forward to begin the initial assault.

Initiative: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (9) + 6 = 15
Full Round Action: Fly 90' to end up in J29 (still invisible)


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie nods at Justin's assessment.
"Fireballing the tents was my first thought as well. That should, if not fully take care of, at least severely hamper a good portion of our opponents. Even more if we do it at night."

She looks at the crude drawing in the dirt.
"If Blayze and I concentrate our fire on the guards, while the casters fireball the tents, then the melee combatants can race in after the initial attack and engage with the survivors."


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Seeing Justin's idea, Sophie cocks her head and thinks, then says something in her strange hissing language. Suddenly Erebus erupts from her neck and takes flight, following the path taken by the golden eagle.
She shrugs at the raised eyebrow from Justin. "Two sets of eyes are better than one, and I'm sure that Erebus possesses more intelligence than your conjuration."

If you feel you must, then I will allow you to commit my image to paper.

Sophie spends her downtime sharing firearm knowledge with Blayze, and her travelling time keeping to herself and apparently speaking to the air in a strange, sibilant language. Occasionally Erebus will poke his head out of her shoulder, glare around slit eyed at the brightness, and then retreat back inside her.

She remains quiet, but for introductions, when they have their dealings with Pando, and is glad when they are finally back into darkness, the constant light and positive energy causing her no end of headaches.

"I'm happy to attack under the cover of darkness," she replies at Hamar's assessment of their foes, "although more scouting of other forces would be in order, as I feel that I do tend to prefer louder displays of force." She nods in Blayze's direction and adds, "we tend to prefer louder displays of force."

Blayze wrote:
"Hey Sophie, you alright? Looks like you had a bit of a nasty time of it for a moment."

She scowls down at the nasty gash still on her neck, as Erebus snakes his head around to lick the wound clean. She slides Sophie's Folly back into it's cane handle, and pulls two new bullets from her bag, loading them into Sophie]s Choice before she holsters it as well.

"I'll be fine," she mutters. "Save your spells Priest, I'll make another healing elixir next time we stop to rest." She pats the new bag slung around her shoulder.

She scratches Erebus under his chin and he purrs contentedly before withdrawing his head back into Sophie's shoulder and disappearing. Turning to Blayze, she nods at her pistols. "You handle those with great skill. I'd love to compare styles when next we break for camp."

Move Action: Pull an Extract from her bag
Standard Action: Drink the Extract

what manner of damage?

The Studied Strike damage is Precision Damage (not multiplied on a Critical, and beings immune to Sneak Attacks are immune to it). It's basically an Investigator & Slayer version of Sneak Attack, but we have to study our target to get it, not surprise them.


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Growling in frustration as her attacks seemingly do little to halt the creature's barrage of attacks, she takes a moment to study the strange anatomy of the creature, so as to place her strikes more effectively.


Move Action: Studied Combat against the Xorn in J12
Standard Action: Attack the Xorn in J12
First Attack: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (19) + 16 = 35
First Damage: 1d6 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10

Xorn Brawl Round 2

The Xorn by Mel and Sophi whirls his bats in a weaving manner, bringing them down on the young woman mercillesly. Its jaws snap at her at the same time

Thank Hekate for Mel's Shield or else that could have been nasty...


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

I'll post my next round action now while we wait for Blayze & Karrin

Hissing in pain, Sophie's Folly appears suddenly in her free hand. She lashes out with it at the wounded creature before her, hoping that her new ally will quickly follow suit and together they can deal with their foe swiftly.

Swift Action: Call Sophie's Folly to her hand
Full Round Action Attck the Xorn in J12
First Attack: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (3) + 12 = 15
Second Attack: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (20) + 7 = 27
First Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (2) + 1 = 3
Second Damage: 1d6 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2
I forgot to mention on her last post that both her weapons ignore the first 5 points of an Outsider's DR


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Let's say I'm in K13
Initiative: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (16) + 6 = 22

Sophie scowls at the Xorn that appear around then an swiftly calls Sophie's Choice to her hand, raises it and fires two shots in quick succession at the closest enemy.

Swift Action: Call Sophie's Choice to her hand
Standard Action: First Shot at the Xorn in J8: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (13) + 12 = 25

For now Sophi lets keep it simple and share initiative. Does the breath weapon affect everyone crowded around the creature? It’s close quarters right now

Yeah everything in a 5” radius, so probably Hamar, Karin and Alessia (I think they’re the only three in close combat). They’ll all take the cold damage (save for half).

Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

I didn’t even think about it before. Should I be making a seperate Initiative Roll for Erebus, or would he just go off mine?

Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie peels herself off the wall and curses at the others crowded around the creature. Shrugging her shoulders, and not to be outdone by Blayze, she raises Sophie's Choice again and fires it at the strange being, pointedly ignoring Justin's cries to subdue it.

Sophie's Choice: 1d20 + 12 - 4 ⇒ (14) + 12 - 4 = 22 Targets Touch AC
Damage: 1d8 ⇒ 7 Ignores 5 points of DR if he is an Outsider (although I think Blayze's gun means that everyone ignores it anyway)

Glory practically blinking into her hand at the merest thought of drawing her weapon.

It's funny, 'cause Sophie's Choice actually does blink into her hand when she wants to draw it. ;)


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie blinks for a second, startled at the sudden transformation. Then she smirks and unloads Sophie's Choice at point blank range into the monstrosity's face.
Initiative: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (13) + 6 = 19
Sophie's Choice: 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (8) + 12 = 20 Targets Touch AC

Quote:
Justin notices that Sophie is now looking elsewhere, (probably targeting her next flirtation victim).

Just her next victim this time. She still only has eyes for Justin... and Blayze... and maybe Merle... and possibly even Nari and Hamar... ;)

Karrin and Alessia scare her a bit too much though... (and in truth she has no idea where she'd even start with the Undead Warrior).

Karrin is talking to Hamar. THOSE two were likely comparing notes on how large, bladed weapons are superior to mere firearms.

Bladed weapons that can be concealed and firearms are always superior to large bladed weapons. :D


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie's eyes narrow under her hood as she spots the shadowy figure skulking around the alley. It could be just someone out on their business in Sigil, Hekate knows shes been on that kind of business before, she thinks to herself. She sighs though, knowing that when something looks wrong, it most often is.
Seeing that Hamar and Karrin have also apparently noticed the figure as well, she decides that the two will make an excellent distraction, most likely blundering around and spooking the shadowy figure. To that end, she quietly detaches herself from the rest of the party and attempts to sneak around behind the figure providing the alley has another entry/exit point and get the drop on them.

Stealth Check: 1d20 + 24 ⇒ (6) + 24 = 30

Pat:

Provided her Stealth is high enough to sneak around behind the figure, she will call Sophie's Choice to her hand as she enters the alley, and then when she is right behind them, activate her Elemental Aura as a Standard action (to slow the figure and make it harder for them to escape - anyone within 10' of her at the end of the round will also take 1d6 Cold Damage... she's not worried who this damages). She will then put the gun to the figure's head and ask them what their business is with the party.
Erebus will also poke his head out of her shoulder as they enter the alley and keep watch behind her (which will activate her Alertness Feat as well).
Another Perception Check: 1d20 + 19 ⇒ (17) + 19 = 36 for the alley just in case.


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie follows along after the others, being careful to keep her hood up. She needed to get her newly acquired money to the Ginali's, but that didn't mean she couldn't do a little shopping with the left over money first. Keeping an eye out was second nature to her though, so she was reasonably confident she could avoid detection for at least a little while longer.

Perception Check: 1d20 + 15 ⇒ (20) + 15 = 35


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

"I'm just happy not to be found in Sigil at the moment..." Sophie mumbles under her breath.

"Will it be necessary for me to accompany you all to the market? I currently have no funds available, and I'd rather not be noticed around that area of the city at this time if at all possible."


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie's eyes light up at the suggestion of specialty ammunition. Although this thought of sharing it with another gun wielder does dampen the excitement a little.

Just tell me how much (if any) Spohie get's from the cut. I'm guessing that it will all go to paying off her debt anyway, but it'll be good to keep a tally.

Sophie looks at the Cleric and shrugs.

"I can mix up something to heal myself, but I'm never one to look the free healing gift horse in the mouth."


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie sits down with the others to wait for Karrin to return. She eschews the Lava Whiskey in favour of some Blood Wine. (Q'apla!)


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie sighs and rolls her eyes at Karrin.
"Fine, fine, if you put it that way..."


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

"I think that the hats are a great idea, I'm sure Renkar would agree," Sophie smiles at Justin.

Sophie listens to Lissandra's words carefully and then leans into Justin, pressing her body against him and cupping her hand around his ear.
She breathes softly into his ear and the whispers "I think that the proper papers would be useful. Where I come from, Drow are not usually to be trusted, and having some form of legitimacy may make our job easier."
She pauses, and then once more exhales gently into his ear before continuing. "As far as a guide is concerned... it has both it's positive and negative points. It may be useful so that we don't look like complete amateurs, but could also be used to lead us astray. I think it may be a a good idea, but we should be cautious around them."
She pulls away from him, and he's not quite sure, but he thinks she may have flicked his earlobe with her forked tongue before she did.


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie follows Justin along, keeping out of the way and continuing to watch the various paintings. At the booth, she nods to Lissandra, a neutral expression on her face, and slides into the booth next to Justin, making sure to sit close enough to make it slightly uncomfortable for him, without actually touching him... yet.


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie follows along, eyes constantly darting here and there, taking everything in.
She scowls when told to leave her weapons, and gingerly hands them over once she realises she won't be allowed through until she does. the plus side is that hopefully she's not too far from them if things turn sour.

Perception Check: 1d20 + 15 ⇒ (13) + 15 = 28
Her eyes narrow at the man she spies, then comprehension dawns on her. She turns her head to stare closely at each painting in turn while Justin blathers on to the woman.


Female Vishkanya Bonded Investigator/Fighter 9/2

Sophie pulls her hood up as well, making sure it hides her face, as she follows Justin and the zipping purple skull through the maze of streets.
