Do these monsters look like they're made of shadows?

They look like they might not be shadows, but shadowy figures are all that can be seen of them. Whether made of shadow or not, they certainly hurt. Did you have a particular shadow-based plan?

Was thinking of using my light spell to try to repulse them.

Indeed! And in this case, all To-Hit rolls are 2d6 plus your Accuracy trait plus your Weapon's ACC value. Gonna roll once per target.

I rolled +Willpower because that's what was written on the spell.

Updated my post with those results.

No, the spell has Willpower as the maximum amount of MP you can bind, and half of what you bind as the radius of light. The To-Hit roll will be 2d6+4+2, your Accuracy plus the Weapon's Accuracy, so +6 in total.

So I'm gonna take those rolls as 14 vs the Protector (closest target) and 11 vs the Warrior (further target).

Helor can because it's a melee attack, but ranged attacks require Shields for the Deflect reaction. Parrying would reduce Helor's incoming damage to 3.

Where is everyone rolling? The game's Dice Roller is up at the top of the screen, in the game menu, and gives a nice record of what's been rolled. I'd really prefer we all use that. It defaults to 2d6 already, so you just need to add your modifier into the little text box, describe what you're rolling for in the Reason For Roll box, and let it do.

I probably should have mentioned that a while ago, but only just now realized I hadn't let anyone know that RPoL has that feature.

Greenie, I might remind you that your Zola's Fireball technique can't miss unless the target is Hard To Hit for whatever reason. Definitely recommend going with auto-hit attacks when you can.

If you have a weapon, you can use the Parry reaction to reduce the damage by 50%. Because of how this game's rounding works, that means you'd reduce the damage by 7/2=4 points, only taking 3 damage!

Also, dropping to 0 means a normal creature is either killed or falls Helpless, depending on what the attacker wants. But you're Heroes, so things work differently: you always fall Helpless instead of dying. You can be killed while Helpless, but only by a direct single-target attack against you with intent to kill. Area of Effect attacks won't hurt you any further.

All this is on page 91, along with the Peril condition. If your HP falls equal or below your Hearts stat, you should announce in an OOC line (but still in the IC thread) that you're in Peril. It not only gives me a reason to drop a link to Peril music, but also might have special effects on monster tactics.

Awesome! I've popped that into my message as an auto-Parry to reduce that incoming damage, and now Helor and Hu can Heckin' Do!

Welcome to the game! With five players, I think that's going to be all unless someone up and vanishes. That said, Taliya is a sheikah ninja, so hopefully she won't vanish out of the game entirely.

I've rolled initiative for her, placing her in a tie with Diyan, but Diyan is still going first. We're gonna say she was in the dream with the rest of you and was sleeping in the same building with everyone else. The shared dream is pretty important, to give the group a sense of being a group.

Ready, Diyan?

Can I shoot a fireball at anything? Is it an area attack or single target?

Zola's Fireball is single target, and you can totally do that. Your damage will be just your Willpower, no weapon bonus.

Sorry for the long absence. It's been a busy week over here, and I think I've finally gotten a chance to rest.
