Ceba is back after a long absence. He offers my apologies for our lack of presence.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
Apologies - slightly confused here.  Is the grate that Ceba spotted a way into the stone building, or a way into some structure that seemed to house the swarming flying whatevers?

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
I tried something new with the combat map so bear with me. I tried composing the field of images instead of background colours.  This may make it impossible to make moves on the map from mobile devices.  Though the image size should be more than manageable for any connection (2400x2400)

Places yourselves in the green area as indicated on the map, the map isn't that blank its just the limit of what you can see at the time of drawing, the enemy is directly to your south.  I'll place the swarm tokens asap.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
@Willa: Thankyou Craig!  Though we have a conflict here.  Note in Phelan's attack for round 1 (which hit btw) he moved the swarm he was attacking to the same location as Willa shifted to, now you can do that but are you aware that you'll be a) standing inside the swarm and b) that location counts as difficult terrain?

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
Also, incase of confusion, unless stated otherwise during movement the silver swarms are hovering at the usual altitude off the ground.  Their attacks have all been melee thus far.

But its a push, not a slide, they should be moved away from him shouldn't they?  How did they end up in that square?

EDIT: Oh, I see!  The token must have gotten moved at some point, it was supposed to be in AS2!  I'll amend my post.  Actually, thinking about it that was probably my fault.  Willa's token was 'beneath' the 2 swarms that were around her and I had to move them to get to her.  Thought I had put them back in the right place.  Guess not :/  Sorry.  I'll be more observant in the future.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
@Willa: Given the issues you've expressed Craig I think our best option is to use roll20 for the combat map.  So I'll quickly set that up and add the link here. Of course we won't use it all the time, just sometimes.

https://app.roll20.net/join/2569414/Rl9Njg Link address, it'll be valid for only a short while so let me know if you get stuck.  The map itself will be upload and all tokens will be uploaded shortly as well.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
The map is up to date now, just edit to make your moves, I gave each token of yours a character sheet too just for heck.  There is no standard character sheet though.  So bear that in mind.  If you want to add HP/HS and the like go ahead/discuss here.

We'll mostly only use roll20 for combat areas that are messy/complicated.

@Drex: Reminder, he's under the influence of the Final Stage effects of both Black Boils and Skinrot which are as follows:

Skinrot:  While bloodied the target takes a -4 penalty to attack rolls and cannot spend healing surges.

Black Boils:  Whenever the target takes damage it takes an additional 1d6 acid damage.

In reply to Author (msg # 101):

I thought we did a check for that and you said it didn't get worse...

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
Warlocks don't have much aoe (works better vs swarms).  I've taken some with Willa, but its not very powerful and rather indiscriminate.  However, Jubei, if you shift 2 squares to the north I can attempt to hit 3 of the swarms with 'waktipus'?

It does only do cold damage.  Not sure how effective that is against these things.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
I'll likely be sending more of them over to Jubei so that could cause some issues with Waktipus planning. I'll try to leave a good position for it though.

7 Temp HP for everyone \o/

Don't forget to put that into your tracker. :D

So... just nuke me. I'll tank it. Probably.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
Fixed the use of the term advantage and disadvantage to the Character Book, so bonus should be reverted to their original intent.  I.e. Combat advantage and +2/-2.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
I'll be using the "Scheduled next session" thingy on roll20 to schedule the daily post update for combat.  As I said before, during the week I'll be a lot harder on implementing that rule, on the weekend I'll be a bit more lenient and allow some grace.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
@Willa: At least you had a list of tactics for such a scenario.  Which is more than I can say for Drex and Ceba.  I suggest you two make the time to write at least a short paragraph like Jubei did.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
I won't be posting end of round/start of next round today as I'll be at an IRL game night tonight so I won't have the time to make a post.  Therefore my update will shift to tommorrow morning at 10am (+2 GMT) as noted on roll20 I hope to see a post from everyone by then.
