Why? Predictable damage is one of the strengths of 13th Age for a GM, IMO.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
I just prefer a little more randomness, but I am absolutely fine with keeping things as they are if anyone objects.

In reply to The Empire (msg # 243):

As long as it's balanced around the same average damage, I don't mind either way. I think the fixed damaged is mainly to make things easier for the GMs, so it's really your call.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
The escalation die should actually be at +1 because I used invocation of war.

Also there's a +1 bonus to anything I attack, and since there's only one such thing you should all get the bonus.

Sorry Sigmund, I obviously wasn't clear. There is a teleportation gate in the underground chamber that leads directly to Kali's Watch (that's what the wizard is struggling to keep open). You can just step right through the swirling vortex!

If there are no dissenters by the weekend I'll assume you all move to the structure as per Gilad's intention.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
If you made a melee attack roll, don't forget about the extra 1d8 damage! Up to 5 of you can use it until the end of the encounter!

To target the catapult's vitals:

AC: 16 or 20 versus ranged, 25HP.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
After checking the party stats thread, it looks like this got missed in the shuffle, but back in post #139 of the IC thread, Gilad spent a recovery and took the average value, so he's currently at 7/9 recoveries and 24/45 hit points.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Gilad, your attack did hit, their PD is 16. If you want to roll damage yourself, I'll give you until this evening :)

Also Durum, the workers are far away to require a double move to reach. Do you want to use the attack on a solider?

Yes please. Durum will attack the closest soldier then.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Sorry, I phrased that badly. Miss by up to 5 is d10 damage, by six or more is 2d10. Shakru and Gilad I'll give you the opportunity to roll damage yourself, or you can take my rolls (see the Dice roller).

I must say in games I GM that dice roller really loves me ;)

I took damage, but I did not fall, correct? I only failed by a bit.

Unless I hear anything to the contrary by Wednesday I will assume you are following Gilad and sneaking up to the barrier.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Some of you may have powers to allow you to bypass the stockade. For the others...

To smash your way though the stockade requires 50HP damage at any location, but will obviously give your position away.

You can try and climb over, but there is a chance you will be seen (enemy gets a Spot roll).

Make a Str roll DC 15
If you fail you are stuck on the outside.
If you fail by 5 or more (or roll a 1)  you are stuck on the outside, you take 3d6 damage and the watchers get a +4 on their Spot roll.

You can also try to slip and slink through gaps in the iron spikes and girders.

Make a Dex roll DC20
If you make this roll, enemy has no chance for a spot.
If you fail you are stuck on the outside and the enemy gets a Spot roll.
If you fail by 5 or more (or roll a 1)  you are stuck on the outside, you take 3d6 damage and the watchers get +4 on their Spot roll..

Once you have all decided and rolled we will see what we can see :)

Would my Shadow Walk ability allow me to get by the stockcade easier?

Yes, you can use it out of combat to drift right though.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Do you want the rolls here or in the IC thread? And can I apply my Veteran background to the Strength check?

Looks like IC! And I'm sure veterans are experienced in storming barricades :)

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Neither of my backgrounds really fit this situation. I guess I'll make a Strength check to climb the wall.
