Re: Discussion Area
Try this then:

The group approached the Scarp, and spotted a long flight of stairs going up the cliff that switch back and forth as they climb.

Borun and Tilaleria began scouting ahead on the stairs. You got about halfway up the 250 foot stairs when the swarm of birds were spotted.

After that, your posts began contradicting each other.


So at this point, both of you are hiding on the stairs.

The others down below are preparing for the hell-hawks to attack.

Re: Discussion Area
Er... just re-read it. Not seeing the contradictions. Both sneaking 'ahead'. Which meant up the stairs.

So we are still up on the stairs.

Oh well given the speed of pathfinder combat, and the fact we are on stairs and therefore can't really use mounts, I suspect we are 'out of the fight'. How far away are we?

In reply to Tilaleria (msg # 581):

"Out of the fight"? Speak for yourself. :-)

Halfway up the 250 feet staircase is about 125 feet. Borun has 50 feet movement, so he can travel 100 feet with a withdraw action. (I don't think that it's viable to run on the stairs.)

Actually, Borun has rather limited combat effectiveness against flying opponents, so he should instead cast Fly, which gives a flight speed of 60. An alternative plan would be to cast Summon Monster V for a bralani azata.

(Or if Tilaleria wants a Fly spell - speak now! It is a touch spell.)

Re: Discussion Area
I thought the staircase was a lot bigger, and I agree with your not viable to run...

A fly would be a good idea: I can't do that easily (if at all). That's two rounds of casting though, and a third to get there... Most fights last three or four rounds in Pathfinder I find. Especially with potent spell casters involved.

Still let's see how it works out.

*chuckles*  Spiderman and maybe Superman too.


By the way, are the creatures already upon us on the ground or is there still some distance between?

Re: Discussion Area
I've got a mix bag of tricks, though I am not sure exactly how to fight a swarm... without showing a crap ton of RP and story that should be saved as a trump card.

Re: Discussion Area
The hell-hawks are fairly fast, fly at about 90 feet per round, faster in a dive. Your flying scouts spotted them while they were still a ways out, so you have about two rounds before they can attack.

In reply to Tilaleria (msg # 589):

It's a little complicated because Borun is a dwarf monk.

Dwarves have base movement 20 feet. Monk class gives Borun +30 feet movement. However both the monk's benefit and haste give enhancement bonuses to movement. So unfortunately this means that haste does not actually increase Borun's movement - it is still 50 feet total.

(Actually haste is limited to double the base movement, so an ordinary dwarf hasted would have movement 40 feet.)

Re: Discussion Area
Ah.. I didn't know about the 20' base. I don't play dwarfs.

OK thanks

I am hoping that someone else declares their actions before I do so. However it has now been almost a week without a post....

I am just now getting my internet back ... again ... had to have techs out a third time.  I'll read up and if I need to make a post, I will.  Sorry for the hold up!

I'm waiting for the GM to say 'new round'. Maybe it was and I missed it.

Re: Discussion Area
Ah yes, I see a response to my last attack but like Til it does seem prudent to wait for the GM to say it's top of the round.

Re: Discussion Area
Mmmm, bombs have a very short range. I primed a undeadly bomb for when they get close but I cant do much more beyond that without blowing some big spells.

Re: Discussion Area
I'm here, just haven't had time to get a coherent post.  Packing and loading today to take my older son to college, heading out in the morning.  If I can sneak something in tonight I will but I'm exhausted right now.  :(

Re: Discussion Area
And I hit ditz mode!  Got my son off to college and then absolutely forgot to come back here since the number didn't change to red.  Got a post in and it may not be optimal but it was all I could think of at the moment.  They can regroup and figure out a better plan at least.

Re: Discussion Area
Can't believe I let this slide so long. Crazy times.

Between two trips to the hospital with intervening stays at the rehab center, Mom has been out of the house now for almost two months. So things are rather discombobulated.

Thanks for posting Saxon! That woke me up! I was sick all day today, so hopefully I'll get to a post tomorrow.

Re: Discussion Area
You would think you would have more time when they are in the hospital or rehab but in fact you don't, taking the time to drive there and back plus being exhausted afterwards when you've worked all day too ... *hugs*  Been there and done that so know how it is and wish you and your mother the best.

I'll wait on Borun to post to see if he comes in the house or not.  Mainly she's going to stand guard and will try to keep the path there safe for the team.
