Re: Championship #15: Battle for the Belt
ooc: until the very last hp... this is my most stressful match ever.

The wizard barks orders to his minion in an unknown language.

 Then, reluctantly, he snaps his fingers and dismisses the Wall of Force to which he owed his life.
  "Come at me, I dare you...." he speaks up, although Haran can probably not hear him now.

 Wounded and anxious, the wizard waits.

Re: Championship #15: Battle for the Belt
ooc: do we need to count rounds of not taking aggressive action ;) ?

The wizard barks orders again.

 All of the invisible stalkers drop to the ground and start digging! They use their bare invisible hands to move earth and dirt out of the way...

 Meanwhile, Josep  waits... and draws a dagger.

   SUMMARY:
 Josep whistles orders to his air minions, and they start digging.


ooc: I'm not sure what action that is, some I'm looking to our ref here.
 The invisible stalkers have a big strength and a slam attack, I assume they can use that to shovel earth?
 I've rolled strength checks for them, but if something else is more appropriate, let me know.
 One of them hasn't taken any action yet (X, who was already in P2).
 His action will be to attack Haran if the others manage to unearth parts of him.

 The end of that battle is weird.

Re: Championship #15: Battle for the Belt
In reply to Josep Gavinho (msg # 522):

I suppose I would ask how they knew where I was. I don't see any perception checks for the minions.





I attacked in round 14. I should be good until next round where I have to attack or take a foul for strategy purposes. I think somewhere in the rules it says you can do that.

Re: Championship #15: Battle for the Belt
 I don't think you'd have a way of knowing how they know, but if you must know, I told them.
 I'm not sure how much you can hear of what is happening above ground, hence I kept those conversations in PM to Boa.

 Man, I thought stalling would mean physical harm, like take 1 damage per level or something... darn!

Re: Championship #15: Battle for the Belt
Ok, first off besides looking at the map no one knows where Haran is,

quote:
For example, detecting a burrowing creature is not DC25, but DC -10 + 10/foot of thickness + active Stealth. So a creature directly beneath you would have at least 1 foot of thickness (10 -10 = 0) and be DC0 + Stealth bonus whereas a creature 1 space below you would have (50-10= 40) DC40 + Stealth bonus. Of course, a creature with Tremorsense, Blind Sense, or Blind Sight would have no problem detecting a burrowing  creature within range, no Perception necessary.


Using the math Haran is at a DC38 (DC 40 + steath mod - 20)(if you put your DC in summary or effects line makes easy on everyone)

As far as dig goes it is not viable in the arena even with a shovel you can only move 2 cubic feet (not 2 foot cube) in a minute.

I see your point Josep however (I could be wrong) with GM specifing "directly beneath" instead of at -1 or in the first layer of dirt it's like fog cloud at distance you get the full effect in adjacent square effect is lessened.

Re: Championship #15: Battle for the Belt
All right then. I still don’t understand how there could be 5ft if ground above Haran if he is in -1. Maybe he’s crawling down there, who knows. Even then it would only be 4ft.

To me it sounds like the intention is that the depth of soil above is always 1ft + 5ft per square. So 1ft at -1, 6ft at -2, etc.

Anyway, I’ll roll with it.

All minions therefore stay in their original position (I can repost if you like).

Actions unchanged...

In reply to Josep Gavinho (msg # 528):

your minions are free to move about as though they know where he is that's the part I dislike about the whole hidden on map thing, Haran just gets defense bonuses.  Never said you had to change minions action just that save looking at your "magical map" (I see a Jumbo Tron with the map and colored blips moving around floating above the arena) you don't know where he is.

Re: Championship #15: Battle for the Belt
I think for that kind of game, the jumbo screen with true seeing is definitely required ! Too bad only those in the VIP section of the arena have that...

All right then, actions stand and nothing changes.

Re: Championship #15: Battle for the Belt

Blacklight appears in the arena again. Obscuring all vision. “Your enemy” something whispers in Haran’s mind. “He’s there….” It continues to whisper in his thoughts. Haran could see Josep and his pets but they couldn’t see him.

No, the sorcerer was confident of that. It was time to strike. He attacked Josep with a mental strike and then disappeared underground again. The blacklight curiously disappears once Haran is underground again.

Re: Championship #15: Battle for the Belt
Josep has a ready action that triggers as you come to the surface in R1, I will allow him to elaborate more and do his rolls.
Side note Josep you are unable to see anything once Haran breaks the surface (good choice in trigger wording)

Re: Championship #15: Battle for the Belt
  Josep was keeping an ear out. He knew all to well not to rely on eyesight when fighting a master of darkness and shadows...

 As the ground open and Haran pushed through, as the ominous blackness spread once again through the arena, the sorcerer could hear the last syllable of a conjuration.

 As he poked an arm out, it was met by a rubbery tentacle, which grabbed him, pulled him, constricted him, sucking the last breath of life he had left, and maintaining a hold on him.

 Josep could see nothing still, but what he heard pleased him.

His Elemental minions were also struggling with the field of rubbery tentacles, but he was not bothered in the slightest.


ACTION:
Cast Quickened Black Tentacles
(where the sound was heard, Q3-R4 corner if unspecified)

ROLLS:
Josep Gavinho rolled 30 using 1d20+19 with rolls of 11.  Black Tentacles grapple check for all in area .
Josep Gavinho rolled 7 using 1d6+4 with rolls of 3.  Black Tentacles damage.

SUMMARY:
Josep casts a spell as a reaction to Haran breaking the surface of the ground.
Haran is Grappled by Black Tentacles and takes 7 damage.
All minions are also grappled and each take 7 damage.


ooc: note this happens upon the start of your first move action. Please tell me that’s game...

I would argue Josep needs to make a successful perception check to know where to cast black tentacles as I could have come up anywhere.
