Combat Thread
This thread is for us to keep track of combat without filling up horrendous amounts of space in the main thread.  I'll be posting up everything that I think you'll need to know about the enemies to try and expedite things.  I'll update the thread at least after each round of combat completes (more often if spell effects or other such things need to be added between turns).

Outline your actions and movement in OOC as precisely as you need.
-Reaction: Activate Shield to increase my AC to 22 so that Archer 1 misses his last attack.
-Move: C3 to F5 (C3 to C4 to C5 to F5 to avoid AoO's from Thug 2)
-Action: Attack Thug 1  23 vs AC 14 for 8 Damage
-Bonus: Shocking Grasp DC 12 vs Thug 1.  Thug 1 rolls 15 and takes no damage.

I'll include enemy saves, resistances, and other needed info for you to calculate damage.  The only thing that you won't have is their total and current HP.  I will color code their condition at the end of each round.  Since each round is supposed to consist of "simultaneous" turns with minute differences, there is the potential to overkill a baddie and that's just part of how things will work.  As a compensation, you will get one added piece of information about certain enemies.  If the enemy's CR is lower than the party's average level, then I will be including how many Hit Dice that the enemy possesses.  This should help you gauge how tough someone is by "sizing them up" based on your experience.

Special Note: I will sometimes keep certain attributes or other things hidden for the sake of suspense, but I will not do this too often.  A good example would be for a fight with the BBEG, I may not list that he's immune to Force damage right away or some similar effect.

I'll roll Initiative for everyone at the start of combat.  Anyone that beats the enemies will go first, then the enemies, then everyone will go as a group and alternate with the bad guys.  I may amend this later, but I want to try to keep it simple at first.
