Out of Character
I had been hoping for a more involved fight, but if Hawk wants to short-circuit this one so we can experience more of the adventure more quickly, it gets my vote.

I also vote for some later encounters that don't have an easy fix. I know those can be hard to find in premade modules, especially if the designer went for cool, cinematic stuff rather than logic. I mean, it's cool to have someone throwing explosive casks, but not very tactically wise, in a world with people who can throw fire.

It wont necessarily kill anyone. It may just hurt them. And more importantly disable the cart and take away their explosives.

Thereby making the encounter significantly easier than intended, right? I could be misunderstanding your intention, though.

I'm just asking for encounters down the road that are challenging and stay challenging at least until we've achieved whatever the goal is. And to be clear, by "challenging," I mean "can't be solved with a single roll or attack." Cleverness can help move things along, but sometimes I'd rather engage with an encounter, at least for a few rounds, and have some chance of losing (which doesn't necessarily mean "dying," though it might, and I'm fine with that).

Edit: heh, I didn't even notice the rolls, I just went by the prose. Good lesson for me.

Re: Out of Character
Can I get the up to the moment list of people's hp? Or should I just look under their bio?

Re: Out of Character
I've been updating folks bios as a courtesy. I expect that people will keep their own bios and character sheets up to date. I will do my best to update folks bios and sheets when damage is dealt, but I might fail to do so. This is your responsibility.

Re: Out of Character
You might be down, unless you have a reaction that gets you away after the first attack.

Re: Out of Character
I refreshed myself on the rules, and I was wrong about the swordmage mark ending when he becomes unconscious. I was thinking of a different issue, which was updated away anyway. So, unless I missed where someone else marked it, the ogre is still under the aegis of assault.

Harrumaku is still prone and no, I don't expect to be able to stand up as part of a teleport.

Re: Out of Character
My understanding is that a mark ends when its creator dies or is unconscious (Rules Compendium, p. 232).

Okay then. That certainly makes sense. One of our other defenders is free to mark the ogre then, without worrying about displacing mine.

Re: Out of Character
I've asked the three silent partners whether they're dropping out of the game. If so, I'll seek replacements -- this is fun enough for me. Checking in with you -- everyone else still game?
