Re: 2.0 Murder in Sandpoint
"I warn you and none of you EVER listen," Zer-wedula mutters through clenchd teeth as he casts Scorching Ray on the figure closer to Talis.

"The rest of you may want to deal with the other one."

Glum says, "Well, let's see what we're dealing with. Hang on a moment" and with that, he begins to chant, holding his Holy symbol out in front of him.

Re: 2.0 Murder in Sandpoint
Round surprise
Zer-wedula casts a spell into the field, next to Talis (not more than 5' away) and a body falls to the ground smoking (and you thought they smelled bad normally, fried, they are even worse...).

Before Glum can start to cast his spell...
Ghouls jump out and attack.  Ghoul 2 charges out of the field and down the path, 20' from where Talis is.  Talis reacts with hardly a beat and hit's the thing, doing major damage (12hp) but not taking it down.  It bites at the rogue, but misses.  Ghoul 3, comes slinking out of the field and attacks from the opposite side as #2 (but doesn't get an attack this round).  Talis tries to hit it, but the plants get in the way and he misses.  A scarecrow ghoul comes running down the path and joins the fight, getting wacked by Talis for 10 dam.
Talis has combat reflexes and can make Aoo while flatfooted and gets multiple Aoo per round.
Ghouls 1-3 appear to be humans in rotten, torn, bloody and dirty nightclothes
           (1 adult male, 2 teenage males)
Ghoul 4 is a human sized scarecrow

Tactical Situation
Talis is surrounded by 3 ghouls, 1 on the near side and 2 injured ones on the far side.  Glum and Tanrov are 30' from the near ghoul.  Zer and Cat are 35' from the near ghoul.

            dam      status
Ghoul 1    - 15      destroyed
Ghoul 2    - 12
Ghoul 3    - 0
Ghoul 4    - 10


Everyone post- everyone got initiative on the ghouls,

Re: 2.0 Murder in Sandpoint
Talis will drop his polearm (free), draw out his sword (move), activate his ring shield (free) and attack 1 of the injured ones in front (standard), fighting defensively (4 penalty on all attacks in a round to gain a +2 dodge bonus to AC), rolling a natural 15 to hit, 8 damage.  If it drops he will step forward 5' into it's spot.  "I listen Zer, I just don't want to be cooked by you.  Nice shot though."

Ghoul 2 drops

Re: 2.0 Murder in Sandpoint
Glum goes tumbling head over heels toward the nearest ghoul and attempts to kick its head clear off before landing lightly on his feet.

OOC... a sort of cinematic kung fu version of charging into combat.

23:00, Today: Glum rolled 7 using 1d8. Kick damage (doubled if critical).
22:59, Today: Glum rolled 23 using 1d20+6. Kick possible critical.
22:59, Today: Glum rolled 26 using 1d20+6. Kick.
22:58, Today: Glum rolled 19 using 1d20+7. Tumble.


Edit by DM;
Sorry Glum, but undead are immune to crits.  I know how you feel, I usually threaten undead and crit wimpy mooks that I don't need to crit on. Rarely do I seem to crit the BBEG.

Re: 2.0 Murder in Sandpoint
Tanrov will drop the bow, charging forward attacking the ghoul after he draws his scimitar.

Tanrov to hit roll was a mod 22
His dmg was 4 + 6 = 10

Edit from DM:
between Glum and Tanrov the near ghoul #3 goes down leaving only ghoul4.

Cat rides Gar closer to the ghouls, a bit, (5') and fires off an eldritch blast at the last ghoul.

17:56, Today: Catessa Fallowfield rolled 5 using 2d6. damage lol.
17:55, Today: Catessa Fallowfield rolled 8 using 1d20+6. attack. A miss, I'm sure.

Re: 2.0 Murder in Sandpoint
Round 1
Talis drops Ghoul 2 with a lucky (as he is not really trying to hit, mostly trying to not be hit) hit with his sword.

Zer-wedula shoots his crossbow and manages to hit the field, barely.

Tanrov/Garth rushes forward and damages Ghoul 3.

Glum charges forward and finishes the job with a precisely placed kick, looking good doing it, Ghoul 3 goes down.

Catessa Fallowfield  & Garious misses, but not by much.

SCGhoul 4 attacks Talis shrieking a horrible hungry noise, and manages to get a lucky claw hit in (1 dam).  For a moment, Talis seems to pause as a look of horror passes over his face, but he steels himself and continues fighting (made his will save vs paralyisis).

To everyones horror, the ghouls shriek is answered from 3 sides.  From behind Cat and Zer, SCGhoul 5 appears, and there is more noise behind it.  Ahead, you see SCG 6 and 7 appear, running toward the battle with an undead wail, 50' away.  From the west, you hear something crashing through the field, getting closer.

Tactical Situation
Talis is in combat with SCGhoul 4.  Glum and Tanrov are 10' from Talis/SCG4.  Zer and Cat are 40' from Talis/SCG4.  Behind Zer, Cat is SCG5, 50' away.  In front of Talis are SCG 6 and 7, 50' away.  Something is coming in from the west.

            dam      status
Ghoul 1     - 15      destroyed
Ghoul 2     - 20      destroyed
Ghoul 3     - 17      destroyed
SCGhoul 4   - 10

Re: 2.0 Murder in Sandpoint
Talis will use expertise, shifting 3 from attack to ac, then attack...nat 7

"Tanrov, help Cat and Zer, they aren't trained for this, and don't let them hit you (fight defensively)."  5' step back toward the group.

DM: yep, it missed

Cat maneuvers on Gar to face the danger behind them. This is bad, real bad. She lets the big folk move about her as she fires an eldritch blast at the on coming ghoul.

13:07, Today: Catessa Fallowfield rolled 4 using 2d6. damage.
13:06, Today: Catessa Fallowfield rolled 15 using 1d20+6. attack.

Don't worry Zer, the halfling and dog will protect you.

Glum waits for the arrival of the ghoul in the field (ooc number 9) and tries to punch it, but neither blow lands.

19:24, Today: Glum rolled 11 using 1d20+6. Second blow.
19:23, Today: Glum rolled 7 using 1d20+6. First blow.
If it's possible to fumble with a natural weapon, the first blow is a fumble.

Re: 2.0 Murder in Sandpoint
Round 2
Talis isn't quite so lucky and misses.

Zer-wedula casts a bulls str spell on Garious.

Tanrov/Garth moves back toward Cat and Zer and takes up a defensive position.

Glum waits for the noise from the field, but sees nothing.

Catessa Fallowfield  & Garious hits SCG5 for 4 damage.

dogs 1, 2 are unsure, growling at the approaching undead, delay.

SCGhoul 4 attacks Talis shrieking a horrible hungry noise, and manages to get a lucky claw hit in (1 dam).  For a moment, Talis seems to pause as a look of horror passes over his face, but he steels himself and continues fighting (made his will save vs paralysis).

SCGhoul 5 charges forward, bloody claws reaching out and attacks dog1, hitting, but the dog doesn't yelp as it is paralyzed.

dogs 1(paralyzed), 2 2 starts barking at the ghoul, but doesn't attack.  It also doesn't run away.

SCGhoul 6 charges in and attacks, but Talis easily avoids the attack.

SCGhoul 7 seems heedless of the tactical situation and pushes past SCG6, giving Talis an Aoo, which hits hard for 12 dam.

SCGhoul 8 is the shriek following SCG5, it still has a chunk of dog it is chewing on, but drops it as it sees fresh prey.

SCGhoul 9 is seen as it comes crashing through the field.

Tactical Situation
see map below.

            dam      status
Ghoul 1     - 15      destroyed
Ghoul 2     - 20      destroyed
Ghoul 3     - 17      destroyed

"Ok Glum, you can start turning undead now" in a worried voice "and Cat, now that you've used up all your doggy meat shields, retreat back to Glum."  Talis attacks 7, (15 to hit, 5 dam), then 5' steps back toward Glum.

When Tanrov goes again he rolled a straight 10 without bonuses to hit and rolled a straight 5 w/o bonuses to damage.  This damage on ghoul 5.  If Zer or Cat with dog killed it before I do than I will fall back to take on 9.

Cat keeps Gar held tightly, for now. Not knowing how her invocations would work on undead, she keeps to simple eldritch blasts.

Re: 2.0 Murder in Sandpoint
Round 2
Talis hits and downs SCG7

Zer-wedula moves and readies an action to hit SCG9

Tanrov/Garth moves forward to engage SCG5, giving it an Aoo (miss), doing 12 dam, destroying it.

Glum presents his holy symbol and turns, but does minimal damage 2 each.
Remember, from house rules, Glum does actual damage to undead, whch get a will save for half.  Unfortunately for you, he rolled poorly on damage AND the ghouls made their save for half.  It has a 30'r.

Catessa Fallowfield  & Garious miss.

SCGhoul 4 gets really lucky and hits Talis with a claw for 3 dam.
Talis needs to make a dc12 For save

SCGhoul 6 attacks, but Talis easily avoids the attack.

SCGhoul 8 charges, and misses.

dogs 1(paralyzed), 2 2 runs away as SCG8 charges in, into the field and out of sight.

SCGhoul 9 crashes it's way through the plants and, after taking 11 damage from Zer, bite's him for 7 damage.
Zer is immune to this makes a dc12 For save to avoid paralysis, but still needs a For save, dc 12 vs disease.

Tactical Situation
see map below.

            dam      status
Ghoul 1     - 15      destroyed
Ghoul 2     - 20      destroyed
Ghoul 3     - 17      destroyed

SCGhoul 5   - 16      destroyed
