Oh my, that is some initiative mod!
You should apply for a new arena record with it ;)

I think we are good to go, there were some typos on my sheet (current AC, CMB and HP... some higher some lower)
Nothing to flail a cat over.

FYI:

HP 196/196
AC 15 / TAC 10 / FFAC 15
CMD 27 / FFCMD 27 / FFTAC 10

Re: Duel # 218: Ankou vs. Lyn
Lyn stepped through the door of the Arena, staring down at the floor. She hadn't long been here before, but she was ready to ensure that she didn't leave the loser yet again.

She rested a hand on her sword, and began muttering a few words.  As she stepped towards the middle of the arena, drawing her sword, it began to glow, as Lyn started moving faster and faster.

Odod, not to be left out, chased after her, staring the druid down as he sat right between the 2 combatants.

I forgot to include it during the challenge, but if we use invisibility/fog effects, are you happy with Hidden-on-map rules rather then posting perception and waiting?

Re: Duel # 218: Ankou vs. Lyn
Oh yes please, I don't want to be in a Battle for the Belt situation again...

Ankou rolled 16 using 1d20+14 with rolls of 2.  Spellcraft to identify spell
 I think that doesn't identify much...

I'll have my post up shortly.

Re: Duel # 218: Ankou vs. Lyn
 The Ankou is taller this time around, and much broader. A veritable mountain of a man under his black shroud, ominously carrying a wickedly long and sharp halberd of some description.

 Mute and immobile, he starts with a brief spell.

 Then he moves north past the Dodo. With every step, he seems to grow a foot taller ! His beefy arms become logs, his legs trunks. By the time he stops moving, he is a genuine mountain nearly 30ft tall still covered in what could be a pirate ship sail, wielding a weapon of formidable proportion...

  " GR‚aaaaaah !!" is all he seems able to say in that shape, a guttural roar that resonate in the coliseum.

Re: Duel # 218: Ankou vs. Lyn
Protection from Energy.
Knowledge Nature to identify the shape.
Iím not sure what the DC should be ó is it based of my HD or the base creatureís?
Maybe just roll your knowledge and ask Maelstrom.

Re: Duel # 218: Ankou vs. Lyn
In reply to Ankou (msg # 13):

The Rules aren't particularly clear on this point:

quote:
Check: In general, the DC of such a check equals 10 + the monsterís CR. For common monsters, such as goblins, the DC of this check equals 5 + the monsterís CR. For particularly rare monsters, such as the tarrasque, the DC of this check equals 15 + the monsterís CR or more. A successful check allows you to remember a bit of useful information about that monster. For every 5 points by which your check result exceeds the DC, you recall another piece of useful information.


Judging from the other knowledge checks, the bonus is either static number with no bonus or a static number + the level of the actual ability itself. From what I can tell, no knowledge check makes it 10 + HD or 10 + Character level. E.g.  a level 100 sorcerer casting magic missile would still only be a DC 25 + 1 ( spell level) to identify (if targeting you). It's based on the spell level, not caster level. Level appears to be irrelevant. And even more so, when you look at identifying creatures, it's based on the monsters CR, not HD.

quote:
Identify auras while using detect magic Arcana 15 + spell level

quote:
Identify underground hazard Dungeoneering 15 + hazardís CR

quote:
Identify natural hazard Nature 15 + hazardís CR


As such, I would say the DC would be 10 + CR of the creature.


Also, a PM for Lyn:

Re: Duel # 218: Ankou vs. Lyn
Lyn growled as the druid grew in size, and shifted into some aberrant form she couldn't recognise.  Taking a deep breath, she took a moment to study the giant Fauchard he was holding.  Taking a moment, she cast a spell a spell and blinked out of existence!

A small disturbance in the area seemed to follow the invisible elf as she dipped to the side of the beast, and focused her attention once more on her blade.  Even as she did, Odod looked to distract the beast any way it could.

Re: Duel # 218: Ankou vs. Lyn
 The Ankou got suddenly very articulate, and laughed: "Ha ! You want to get up close !! No thanks !"

 The massive monstre of a gladiator moved casually across the arena floor, accepting attacks of opportunity as he did so.

 He casually turned around, used a simple spell to strengthen his defences, and started screaming at the top of his lungs, causing the arena walls to tremble.

  " GRAAAAAAH!!"

 Now clearly enraged, he raises his tree-size fauchard and the blade drops on Lyn's shoulder with uncanny precision.

Re: Duel # 218: Ankou vs. Lyn
I just have 1 question.  Fauchard, being a reach weapon, means you can't attack within 15 feet. As far as I can tell, Lyn is within 15 feet, and as such can't be hit by the Fauchard?

Also, for my next turn, can you confirm if my being invisible will leave you flat footed?

Re: Duel # 218: Ankou vs. Lyn
Yep, I fumbled that. I meant to be 5ft further...

@Maelstrom: we agreed to play hidden on the map, so we donít keep each otherís position secret, but being invisible still entails the normal benefits plus grants the benefit of cover.

Just to be clear, that means Ankouís attack hits thin air (leaves a deep crevice in the ground)

Yes, Lyn being invisible leaves Ankou Flat-Footed.
