Hircine, I'd like to ask if I can switch out an at-will. I have crushing surge, but it just doesn't really have the effect at low levels I'd like it to have. So I want to switch it out with Threatening Rush. Is that ok to do before we hit our next combat?

Go for it.

Sweet, thanks :smallbiggrin: The other one just wasn't being as useful as I thought, and this one will be much more useful for what I want to do :smallsmile:

Perception- [roll0]

Sad that even with my +7 your check is better :smalltongue::smallwink: Stupid 3's:smallsigh:

Also, if possible Hircine, I'd like to Ready an action for Thornin. If he sees any undead, immediately charge them with Threatening Rush. If not, no big deal.

I've been working on a new map and that's been holding me up from progressing things the last couple of days.

Infernally when you get the chance can you check out the combat tracker and make sure I transferred all of Lucia's stats correctly.

Oh wow, that's a lot of monsters.

Apologizes for the lengthy absence, but writing up this encounter has proven to be more difficult than I anticipated. I nearly had it complete on Sunday when my comp decides to crash and auto recover fails to bring the document back. It's my fault for not taking 5 seconds to save it. Anyway, I'm nearing completion and hope to have it up this evening.

Meltheim

No worries! I am still recovering from seeing Lann on the enemy list

Hircine

It took far longer than I ever anticipated, but the encounter is up and running. I'm really looking forward to seeing how it plays out.

How does the skill challenge portion of combat work? I'm excited because this is something I want to try in my own games, but haven't yet.

On our turn, do we get to make a check AND attack, or is it a choice for either? If we get to do both, does the check use up an action?

Irish Musician
2014-02-23, 01:29 PM
Wait, so while Lann isn't bloodied, everyone get a -5 to all rolls? :smallconfused:

Good catch! I forgot to include information regarding that aspect of the encounter. Making a check costs a standard action. Also after careful consideration I'll be allowing both Intimidate and Bluff checks in this challenge.

No. Just to skill checks that would remove the spirit possessing him. What you're suggesting would be extremely cruel to players. :smallamused:

That is why I was so confused! I was like, a -5 at level one to EVERYTHING?! Holy ****! Hircine has gone off the deep end! :smallwink::smallbiggrin:

I will take Thornin's readied action now, getting the one just north of Lann.

Woohoo! Bluff and Intimidate!
Great looking encounter Hircine.

I am so so so so so looking forward to my turn. Rebuke as a minor, Exorcise skill challenge as Standard. YAY!

Hircine

Woohoo! Bluff and Intimidate!
Great looking encounter Hircine.

Thanks. One of the hurdles I had to deal with while building this encounter was finding out what to do with Lann. I really liked the character and didn't simply want to kill him off. Eventually the idea that he gets possessed by the enemy came to me, and after that I tweaked it so you would get an opportunity to save him.

I suspect you and Clay will wreck this encounter with ease.

It seems that Rjanag hasn't logged on in quite some time. Could one of you take Sen's turn? I'll send out a PM, but I'll also check and see if anyone else would be interested in joining the group.

Hmmm, I'd say send out a PM and see what happens, if nothing happens by tomorrow night then someone take Sen's turn. I can if need be, or someone else if they want to....I'm easy :smallsmile:

Irish Musician
2014-03-04, 11:09 PM
So, is this still going on?

Meltheim
2014-03-05, 02:20 AM
I think we are figuring out Sen still right?

Hircine
2014-03-10, 10:27 AM
My comp has been out of commission for the last week and a half, which has kept me quite busy. I should have things fully operational in another day or two. In regards to the game I haven't been able to search for a replacement and at this point I don't even know who's still participating.

Meltheim
2014-03-10, 10:48 AM
I'm still here and happy to wait :smallbiggrin:

2014-03-13, 03:37 PM
Hey folks! Sorry I've been out of the loop a bit; wife ill, daughter ill, work gone bat **** crazy!
Still here, definitely want to keep playing. I can be Sen after this weekend, work should have calmed down a bit by then, at least for a couple of weeks.

You haven't missed much as I haven't been around for a while either. If someone could take over Sen's role for this encounter I'll start looking for a replacement.

Also for those that are still here could you post so I know whose still here.

Meltheim
2014-03-18, 03:29 AM
still here and ready for action

Game on! Forums are back :smallbiggrin:

Irish Musician
2014-03-31, 03:18 PM
I am here still!

I like the look of the new forum, it is kinda crazy looking because I am not used to it. But I like it, looks modern and updated to me.

And I have not got any of my email updates for my IC game subs, so they are probably still working on that atm.

Hircine
2014-04-01, 12:42 AM
Things look quite different and it will take some getting used to. In any case for those still here we can continue.

Megatron46
2014-04-02, 02:39 PM
Let's get this undead killing thing started! (once I stop clicking on the wrong links and icons :smalltongue:)

Hircine
2014-04-06, 10:02 AM
Alright so we've got 3 of 5 participants left. I'll need someone to take over Infernally clay's character until replacements can be found.

Meltheim
2014-04-12, 09:47 PM
Weird question - do we have action points or not? It's been a while and the forums going offline didn't help.

Yeah this long of a delay was unexpected. AP's are tracked on the spreadsheet. You currently have 1 available and will gain another should you survive the encounter.

Great! I'm going to try and nuke a bit, but it won't be until after dinner (give me a few hours).

Meltheim
2014-04-13, 11:10 PM
grr, damage didn't work. And does rollv not work anymore?

[roll0] radiant for all hit by my Rebuke Undead.

Edit: + any additional radiant due to vulnerabilities, of course.

No, rollv does not work anymore. Apparently it was never supposed to work in the way it did lol

Ouch! Thornin got a bit of a kicking! Here's hoping Samel unleashes some divine whoop ass!

2014-04-21, 04:55 PM
Whoever is controlling Lucia is up.

Meltheim
2014-04-21, 06:40 PM
I'm happy to roll Lucia's turn if nobody objects. At the minimum Healing Word on Thornin, eh?

edit: looks like Lucia's geared to give +2 defenses until SonT (Shielding Word) and +2 attack until EonT (Battle Cleric's Lore).

Melt are you still taking Lucia?

I can, but I won't be able to post a move for several hours. if someone else is able to then go for it.

Got lucia's turn in. Probably a whiff though.

I think I want to do an action point, but I'd like to know the outcome of those rolls before I put it up.

Megatron46
2014-04-30, 04:16 PM
Once Thornin has finished up, my plan is to dragon breath some minions and then try to exorcise Lann a little!

Hircine
2014-05-07, 06:22 PM
A family member on my end has been ill of late which has limited my ability to post over the last week. I hope to have something for you before the night's over.

Hircine
2014-05-10, 10:08 PM
I've had to correct last turns actions as one of the hounds managed to hit Thornin since I forgot to factor in the CA.

Hircine
2014-05-15, 11:52 PM
Is anyone still here?

Meltheim
2014-05-16, 09:12 AM

Well, since it has been a month since anything was posted here, I am going to have to drop this game. It was very much fun while it lasted, y'all, and I hope to see your around the playground!!
