Willa, don't forget the bonuses from Magic Weapon.

Ah nice!  Thanks for the reminder ^^

Phelan Drixos:
And Dazed does not interfere with free actions.

Cool.  Thanks for this too.

If you all are wondering why there is so much commotion on the Combat Map, its because these guys have alot of shifting movement powers.  So they can basically rearrange themselves quite effectively when the situation demands it and they have very dangerous tactical behaviour.

@Author: Thank you for updating Willa's dazed condition.  I had forgotten it.

EDIT: So attacking from invisibility normally provides combat advantage (+2 to attack rolls).  Under the House Rules, I think that means I have 5E Advantage (roll twice on attacks and take the highest?) for Willa's attack.  I have recorded each roll separately in case I am wrong about that, in which case just add +2 to the first roll made against each enemy.

Willa: Yeah that house rule applies until you reach level 4.  I've had some discussion with Max on the subject and we've come to the decision to scrap it once you reach level 4.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
I think my next turn is going to be extremely complicated.  Unless anyone has any better ideas, this is what I am thinking:

Minor Action: Curse Sword Auto 1
Standard Action: Dire Radiance (2 chances to hit at +9 to hit.  Hopefully I can make a 19 with that)
THEN IF:

1) I hit and Sword Auto 1 survives.  Change my move action to a minor one and use my helm to determine its remaining hp.  Depending on what's left either Action Point to hit it with my daily or let someone else try to finish it off.  If left to someone else Daily sword 2 as below.

2) I hit and Sword Auto 1 dies.  Trigger my pact boon through my rod, spreading my curse to all enemies within 5 squares of Sword Auto 1, then AP and daily sword auto 2.

i) If sword auto 2 is hit and bloodied, change my move action to a minor action and use 'Taking Advantage' racial to end its aura.

ii) If sword auto 2 is hit and not bloodied, or not hit at all, move to maintain my Shadow Walk ability

4) I miss Sword Auto 1.  Action Point and attempt to Daily it.  If it dies, trigger pact boon to spread curse to all enemies within 5 squares, then move to maintain Shadow Walk.

@Author - the presentation of this may get messy, sorry.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
Yeah, it'll be a very long post with a lot of different possibilities and you'll have to figure out which one applies :/  I'll help however I can.  Hoping someone has a better plan though so it wont be necessary.

Honestly, messy as it is that seems to be the best option. You'll probably have to step-by-step things.

If our illustrious Author is happy to let me split my turn up into separate posts and also happy to respond to each, sure that would probably be easier.  Also it might be better to use Eldritch blast instead of Dire Radiance.  I have +2 to hit with Dire Radiance, but the Sword Auto's Fort is 2 points higher than its reflex, so the roll to hit is actually the same.  The difference is that Eldritch blast has higher potential damage on the turn it hits, whereas dire radiance has better damage over time, if the target moves closer to Walla.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
I'd recommend Eldritch Blast. We have no guarantee the sword auto will move toward Willa on its turn, plus better to try and take it out before it acts rather than during or after.

If you have a good reason then sure.  o3o

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
Well thanks to a series of awful rolls that was very anticlimactic and I am now out of anything useful I can do.

@Willa: I shall now channel my inner French GM "Such is life." blows smoke in your face.

It happens to us all.

Also don't mind my post, I figured I'd play up the humour a bit.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
Not that it matters, but I'd like to revel in victory a little more and point out that Willa actually did 45 damage to the Sword Auto as I forgot the +3 from Magic Weapon!  Although you could argue that extra 3 belongs to Phelan, I guess :P

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
After the days that have gone by in this encounter and folks not posting the grace I've been giving out to you guys to take some time to post is now official spent, its dried up, its caput. From now on, I will strictly be enforcing the houserules in combat around Inaction.  From now on you will have approximately 24 hours to post your action in a round or else the Inaction rules will come into effect, if you do not have tactics written down on your character sheet in a clear and concise manner your character will take a Total Defence action on his turn and only respond with Attacks of Opportunity.  Are we clear?

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
Yes, sorry. I'll do better. :(

I've done some stats on the combat so far, if anyone cares:

Initiative: 24/4/17 to 25/4/17
Declaration that we got to go 1st: 27/4/17
1st round: 28/4/17 to 01/05/17
Enemy round: 3/5/17
2nd round: 3/5/17 to 6/5/17
Enemy Round: 8/15/17
3rd round: 8/5/147 to 10/5/17 (Phelan took Drex's turn on 10th)
Enemy Round: 11/5/17
4th Round: 12/5/17 to 13/5/17
Enemy Round: 13/5/17
5th Round: 13/5/17 to 15/5/17
Enemy Round: 16/5/17
6th Round: 16/5/17 to 18/5/17

6 Player Rounds and 5 Enemy Rounds in 22 days (27/4 to 19/5, includes 27th in the count)

Author took 2+2+1+0+1 = 7 days for 5 enemy turns = An average of 1.4 days per round

Adjusting the count for player days down by 3.  2 for the time author took 2 days and 1 for the day the author posted on 0 days, for fairness as people may not have expected our author to respond so quickly.

Leaving Players with 19 days for 6 rounds.  Or an average of 3.17 days per round.


EDIT:
Thinking about it this might be the wrong way to do things.  If we had posted within 24 hours each time it would have taken 11 days (5 for author, 6 for us).  SO I guess the player count should be 22-8 (if being generous with the author's 0 day post), meaning 6 rounds in 14 days, or an average of 2.33.  Still too long, of course.

Craig, are you a mathematician? Or do you just love math?  I'm really curious now.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
I'm going to add the Fame and Fate Fortune tokens to our communal wealth section. If someone else already has, let me know.

This should bring the total to:
  • Wealth: 3
  • Fame: 11
  • Fortune: 17.5

Re: OOC - General Chat 03
I hadn't done anything with the wealth :)

Also, I have levelled Willa up to 4, taking +1 Charisma, +1 Intelligence and the Hidden Sniper Feat.

Oh and we're now dropping advantage/disadvantage, correct?  I think that's a good idea.  Willa would be super good at landing her spells if it stayed.

Re: OOC - General Chat 03


Leveled Jubei up, retrained History for Endurance, took Swift Recovery feat and + 1 to Charisma and Strength

And yeah, I think we wanted to drop it now and return back to normal combat advantage.
