This is the introductory text for the third
Gladiator

The rules:
Every round, players may: 1) activate one physical stance or stance and/or execute one attack; 2) activate one psionic stance or stance and/or manifest one psionic power; 3) activate one divine stance or stance and/or cast one divine spell; or 4) use one special maneuver. Any number of passive skills may also be used, as well as one shout.

Attacking:
Attacker rolls attack against his target's defense.
If the attack roll exceeds the defense roll, the attack hits.
The attacker then rolls damage.
At the end of the round, all damage is tallied, and everyone makes a vitality roll. If damage exceeds a player's vitality, the player loses a life.
If the damage exceeds twice the max vitality roll (12 for 1d6, 16 for 1d8, etc), that player loses 2 lives instead. Likewise, if it exceeds thrice the max, the player loses 3 lives, and so on.
If you lose a life, you cannot act for the rest of the round.
Players with 0 lives are dead.

Psionics:
Psi automatically regenerates at the rate of 1 per round, at the end of each round, to a maximum of your starting Psi.
Concentration: While concentrating, you may not use a stance, attack, use psionics, or use a special maneuver. You take Defense-, and if you are damaged, you lose your concentration.

Order of events:
Shouts and stances are applied before the round starts.
Effects of actions (ex: damage, ability loss, conditions) take place at the end of your phase (phase, not round).
Payment for actions (ex: Psi loss, life loss from Desperation Strike) take place at the beginning of your phase.
Vitality is generally rolled at the start of your phase (if you took damage), and then again at the end of the round, if you took any more damage. (Damage is reset to 0 after the first roll.)

All players start with:
1d6 damage
1d6 attack
1d6 defense
1d6 vitality
1d6 psi
5 lives

Players also start with 7 points to customize their character. They may purchase passive skills, stances, special attacks, special maneuvers, shouts, divine spells, and psionic powers with these.

(Whenever an attribute is marked with a '+', this means an increase in die size. If it is marked with a '-', this means a decrease in die size.)

Conditions:
Stunned: A player who is stunned may not attack or manifest any powers. For example:
There are three gladiators: Speed, Smasher, and Swordsman.
Round 1:
Pre-phase:
Speed goes first, as he is Rushing.
Main Phase:
Smasher stuns Swordsman.
Swordsman still gets to go, as the stunning happens after the phase.
Round 2:
Pre-phase:
Speed goes first again.
Main Phase:
Smasher stuns Speed.
Swordsman is stunned.
Round 3:
Pre-phase:
Speed is stunned.
Main Phase:
Swordsman is not stunned anymore.
Blinded: A player who is Blinded takes Attack- and Defense-. Whenever that player attacks there is a 25% chance he misses entirely.
Wounded: A player who is wounded takes 2 damage every round that he is damaged. Effectively, it adds another 2 damage to the damage dealt by player.
Burning: A player who is burning takes 1 damage the first round, 2 damage the second, and so on (caps at 4), after his phase.

'deals damage': Overcomes vitality

Team Battles
Normal players are grouped into pairs. If there is an odd number of players, the last player gets a bonus of some sort (I'm still thinking)

Random Events
They are random!

Dice stacking goes like: 1d2 - 1d4 - 1d6 - 1d8 - 1d10 - 1d12 - 1d14 - 1d16... and so on. Yeah, yeah, they don't really exist.

Why did you decide against implementing "luck"?

EDIT: I'm playing of course.:smallbiggrin:

EDIT2:Divine spellcasting seems very overpowered. Why waste 1 point on +1 extra life when for the same cost you can get +2 lives and a zombie servant?

Mustiado
2007-10-16, 05:08 PM
Holy Crap. :smalleek:

If I figure out how to play, I'm in.

heretic
2007-10-16, 05:17 PM
Can you clarify Enraged Smash?

Is it + Attack for every special attack you have or every special attack you are using? Because you can only use one attack at a time...

Eldritch Knight

I will take Stealth and Spring Attack and Two-Weapon Fighting. A point each of Con, Dex, Strength, and Armor.

This will be fun...

We choose our partners, guys. Time to figure that out. I think I'm taken, but I'm not sure yet.

Meynolds
2007-10-16, 08:38 PM

Frenzy (1 Point)
Combat Expertise (1 Point)
Two Weapon Fighting (1 Point)
Leap Attack (1 Point)

GoC
2007-10-16, 09:38 PM
I've got a good combo:
Wisdom->Animate Dead, Chaos Hammer
Strength+
Armor+
Power Attack
Heal
Metaphysical Weapon
Shield Other

2xWisdom->Inflict Wounds, Shield of Law, Cure Wounds, Holy Word
Empower Divine Spell
Charisma->The Power is yours!, I Will Survive!, Charge!

Question for Abardam

Wounding - I like it...but I seek clarification.

you said

Shouts and stances are applied before the round starts.
Effects of actions (ex: damage, ability loss, conditions) take place at the end of your phase (phase, not round).
Payment for actions (ex: Psi loss, life loss from Desperation Strike) take place at the beginning of your phase.
Vitality is generally rolled at the start of your phase (if you took damage), and then again at the end of the round, if you took any more damage. (Damage is reset to 0 after the first roll.)


The last line is what worries me about how useful wounding will be. Vitality is generally rolled at the start of your phase (if you took damage), From wounding presumably and then again at the end of the round, from other people sticking the boot in if you took any more damage. (Damage is reset to 0 after the first roll.)

If damage is reset to 0 after the first roll, and wounding looks to only do a couple of points of damage max, then it will be easily negated and you reset your damage. Doesn't this cut the effectiveness of wounding too much? To turn the question around why should the wounding damage be treated separately from normal damage?

P.S. who wants to partner with me? PM me and we will talk tactics.

What are you talking about of course I implemented luck!
And yeah, I thought about it last night and I'm probably changing Cure and Inflict to 1 life, 2 DSPs.

JAGG

To clarify: wounding (and burning) deals its damage both before your turn and after it. Thus it is added to normal damage. Actually, I suppose a betterish idea is to just slap on wounding damage whenever the guy's damaged. Though burning inflicts its damage regardless, after the affected's phase.


Can you clarify Enraged Smash?

Is it + Attack for every special attack you have or every special attack you are using? Because you can only use one attack at a time...Damage+ for every attack you bought (including Enraged Smash) so if you have it and 6 other attack skills, you'd get Damage+++++++. Huh. This needs to be capped. Probably at 4.


Question: Do divine points regenerate?Nope. Psi does though

North
2007-10-17, 06:04 AM
I think Im in.

Just need to read through this when Im a bit more awake.

Hey Castaras want to make team blue :smalltongue:

Fleeing Coward
2007-10-17, 07:24 AM
New to this so just need some clarification:
1) Does everyone start at max psi?
2) Do you choose the lucky bonus at the start of each round?
3) Does Lucky's +1damage stack with Iron palm?

Abardam
2007-10-17, 07:40 AM
1) Yes
2) Yes
3) No. You're not actually rolling for Damage with Iron Palm

Castaras
2007-10-17, 11:31 AM

Edit: Will the divine power points regenerate as the psionics do?

heretic

Question:

Lucky seems insanely over powered. Basically it is Constitution, Armor, Dexterity and Strength all put together, except you may only use one at a time.

So why take any of the above skills when Lucky will do just as well and can change to fit the situation?

If my interpretation of Lucky is correct, then I'll take it instead of Dexterity.

Castaras-

It's actualy supposed to cost 2 points. I think he forgot that.

If it is how you think it is then I'm switching both Armor+ for lucky.

It's a flat +1, rather than a step up in die. But pretty good nevertheless.

So as to not screw with the people who have taken it already, I'll just have it be disabled for 1 round after it is used or something

Eheh. Whoops.

So as to not screw with the people who have taken it already, I'll just have it be disabled for 1 round after it is used or something

Don't see why Lucky needed to be nerfed, a 1 point bonus is nice but it isn't exactly overpowered considering you have to choose what to apply it to at the start of the round.
But since it is, my new build:

Armor +
Constitution +

*goes to look for anything that might regenerate wisdom points*You can't. Them spells are powerful enough already, you know.

Don't see why Lucky needed to be nerfed, a 1 point bonus is nice but it isn't exactly overpowered considering you have to choose what to apply it to at the start of the round.Well, for one thing, it's more versatile, and for another, a +1 bonus is mathematically superior (though, you know, not by much) to an increase in die size.

Hrm.. Let's go solo.. unless someone wants to team up..Actually, you have to pair up with someone now, unless there's an odd number of players.

Hum. If Eldritch Knight doesn't find a partner, I'm starting the game (and he's getting a bonus of some sort).

Three other guys, Confirm/Deny?

(If there are still an odd number of players after this, one player would still get the solo bonus, hopefully with the imbalance reduced in magnitude because there would be only one.)

@Meynolds: Oh, yeah. I see it. Team lime green.

So since you're going solo, I'd say you get an increase in two stats (you choose), and 2 additional life.

Final lineup:
Almighty Salmon - Fleeing Coward
Fredricus - Captain van der Decken
Kasz - Khaldan
Castaras - Heretic
Streakster - GoC
Meynolds (solo)
Jagg - Raiser_B1ade
Eldritch Knight - Orzel

Game start!

You are behind metal bars, in pitch darkness, along with your parter. After what seems like an hour, the announcer's voice booms out, "Ladies and gentlemen, we now open the gates for the gladiators! They will fight for your entertainment, to the death! Raise the gates!"

----

The audience roars.
The ten or so steel gates around the coliseum slowly rise, and the gladiators (and Inactivity Lions) step out. The announcer says, "Begin the killing!"

Hey Streakster did you change your build when I wasn't looking?:smallconfused:
I would think it would have been a good idea to at least keep Shield Other...

Unless of course you're planning on going solo due to me being ripped to shreds in two rounds?

streakster
2007-11-07, 11:54 AM
Aww, crap. Miscommunication. Looks like Abardam used my old build, from before we teamed. EDIT: My fault really, I never changed my old post to reflect that...

Also I'm pretty sure I said I was using the first build in post #13 but got given the second.
Let's just pretend you're using build #2 in post 13 and I'll use build #1. Ok?

Noone's posted any actions yet so no harm done.

Also, does sprint avoid the wave?))

Jagg steps out, nods to his teammate, and proceeds to run like a madman around the arena screaming like a banshee. He waits until he's near the most of his fellow gladiators before screaching to a halt and saying deep and meaningful words of power. "Whoops, crackle the chicken gibblets, it's time for soup Mr Pie."

Sadly no since jagg has improved initiative just sprinting won't stop it. Also he is going to use max psi=10.

GoC
2007-11-07, 06:51 PM
Me and Streakster (assuming he doesn't post before the deadline) both Sprint.
If needed to escape the Energy Wave Streakster will also shout "Charge!!!!" to everyone in the silver and orange teams (subject to change on promises of NAP).

FC: That's a pretty big group you've got there.:smalleek:

Raiser_B1ade: I think you're playing you're trump card a little too early.

EDIT: Streakster uses Shield of Law on himself (unless he says otherwise of course).

Sadly no since jagg has improved initiative just sprinting won't stop it. Also he is going to use max psi=10.

But since I do as well, it's just a question of if sprinting only avoids physical or all.

EDIT:
@Raiser_Blade: With quicken stance max Jagg can spend is 9 psi.
@GoC: Just trying to survive.

Shall we all hit him this turn to prevent that?

Raiser: Kinda sad that your team went all-or-nothing in the first round...:smallwink:

EDIT3: Hmm... 36 damage to everyone on the first round while using Quicken Power to make people think that Sprint is useless.

1) Jagg motions to his stealthy partner - maybe he will and maybe he won't - builds the psychological warfare hype - fear the strategy!!!

Note: If too many people Sprint+Charge this round then Raiser_B1ade will probably wait til the next one before attacking. That's why I reccommend we kill him this turn.

Heh.
It shows in that everyone from the previous gladiator games took Constitution.
I thought d12 defence, empowered cure wounds and Shield of Law would make up for it but also thought that d8 psionics meant you had 4 power poionts not 8...
A d10 twinned Energy Wave does 26 (3 lives if you've got d8 vitality) damage to everyone.

I can't help but wonder why there wasn't a team with int++, twinned power, energy wave and stealth...
They could have suddenly wiped out every other competitor whenever they wanted.

The announcer's voice is heard in the stands as "Bezerker" Meynolds enters the arena. "Before the battle began, we had an opportunity to catch up with the only soloist in the competition. The following is an audio recording of the exchange."

Reporter: "So why are you going solo in this round?"
Meynolds: "My parter failed to . . . report . . . to the competition."
Reporter: "Really? We had heard you killed him off for some bonuses during the competition. Is this true?"
Meynolds: "No. Complete lies. I deny everything."
Reporter: "Are you sure? Is that your final answer?"

Now in the arena Meynolds rushes for the center of the growing energy wave, taking an agressive stance and leaping, bringing his weapon down at his target.

Dang EK.

I kind of needed those 2 charges! from team silver
so I can go before Jagg and possibly make him lose an action and waste his energy wave

oh well. Have fun dying everyone with d6 vitality.

Abardam
2007-11-08, 07:40 AM
Righto. So.

@Jagg and Raiser: a "point" of Psi is equivalent to an increase in die size. So Jagg can spend 5 max (well 4 because he quickened) and so on, which would drop him to zero Psi (effectively 1d2) for 8 damage to everyone

@Everyone who sprinted: You're still getting Energy Wave'd, since it's not an "attack"

@GoC and Streakster: So that's build number 1 for GoC and number 2 for Streakster, in GoC's post?

@Multiple "Charge!"rs: Same effects (aside from damage) don't stack.

@Fleeing Coward: It (Metaphysical) stays on

@Almighty Salmon, Streakster: Sprinting means no stance or spells

@Meynolds: TWF is different now. You can't attack the same target twice, but there's no attack penalty

Whew. Is that all the points?

2007-11-08, 11:17 AM
All right then, I Shield Other: GOC, use Charge on my team and any members of the silver team that need it, and attack Jagg.

Umm...
I'd recommend you empower an Inflict or Holy Word spell (or stay with Shield of Law). You're not too hot in the hand-to-hand department but you've got some deadly spells.

Also I think the The Power is Yours! to anyone attacking Jagg or Raiser would be a better shout to use.

streakster
2007-11-08, 11:24 AM
Gah! And you all thought the mad master of mediocrity bit was just a gag...

The Power is yours! to everyone attacking Jagg, Raiser, or Eldritch Knight, and to GoC as well.

Inflict Wounds: Jagg

Sorry about that, playing this and finals simultaneously.

Abardam
2007-11-09, 08:45 AM
Okay, so people are ignoring the one-change only rule. That's okay, it's the only the first round.

Anyway...

Round 1

Shouts
Heretic tells Castaras to go for the eyes! Dr Bath commands Calamity to charge! Fleeing Coward inspires Almighty Salmon, Dr Bath, Calamity, Castaras, and Heretic with his power! Streakster does the same with GoC and Meynolds! (also in the future could you specify names for your targets, thanks)

Pre-Main Phase
The gladiators circle each other. All of a sudden, Calamity leaps at Raiser Blade (can I spell it this way please) and sinks his daggers into skin (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1363044) for 3 damage! He then rips them out, allowing Raiser to bleed freely! (For two rounds!)

Oh and Jagg blasts everyone for 8 of course:

Almighty Salmon, Fredricus, Kasz, Streakster, GoC, Eldritch Knight, and Calamity are blown away! Fleeing Coward (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1363065), Khaldan (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1363068), Castaras (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1363069), Heretic (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1363070), Dr Bath (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1363076), and Meynolds (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1363077) try to resist, but are slammed against the wall with force!
Only Captain van der Decken (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1363066) and Orzel (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1363078) remain standing!

Jagg drops to his knees, spent! Raiser loses more blood (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1363079)!

Main Phase
Orzel smacks Jagg upside the head! Jagg's jawbone audibly cracks (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1363087)! Orzel tries to Iron Palm Jagg, but Raiser takes the hit (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1364949)!

Captain van der Decken and Fredricus are mauled by the Inactivity Lions!

Announcer: That Jagg sure is quite the flashy fellow, is he not? Good thing we in the audience are shielded for such occasions as this! Anyway, raise the maze walls!

To your surprise, walls rise from the ground, forming a maze! You can see neither your opponents nor your teammate!

The Maze
Mechanics: Only 'connected' Gladiators can affect (attack, heal, shield, energy wave, and so on) each other within the maze! Any player who connects to anyone you are connected with becomes connected to you, too!

Seek [stance]: Connect to target player or creature
Hide [special]: Break all connections at the start of your phase

Announcer: The walls will be lowered in 3 rounds, or when the Minotaur is slain!

Minotaur:
2 lives, 1d6 attack, 1d10 damage, 1d6 defense, 1d8 vitality, 1d4 psi
The Minotaur connects to a random player each round, at the start of its turn. Slay it to get its Minotaur Axe! (Attack-, Damage+ if you are using it.) If more than one player gets the final blow in, the one who dealt the most damage gets the axe! (In case of a tie, it will be randomly determined.)

Currently Connected Gladiators:
-no connections-


Next round is on Monday!

Meynolds
2007-11-09, 03:32 PM
Umm...
Didn't Meynolds Leap Attack Jagg?
Didn't Streakster target Jagg with an empowered inflict wounds?
Didn't Khaldan Inflict Wounds at Orzel?
Didn't Eldrich Knight Power Attack Jagg?
Didn't Fleeing Coward Iron Palm Jagg?
Didn't Dr. Bath Iron Palm Jagg?

All those listed lost lives before their initiative, thus not being allowed an action. See the first post.

Anyways, on to this round:

I begin seeking a worthy foe named Jagg, leaping at him when he is found!

I seek out Streakster.
I then activate metaphysical weapon.

GoC, I don't think you can seek me and shield me. Those are both stances. One of us will have to seek, and the other shield. I'll shield you, if you wish.

Anyhoo, assuming that GoC and I connect, I cast Cure Wounds on him.

To sum up:
Shield Other: GoC
Cure Wounds: GoC

No can do. I can't heal you above your max life, I don't think.

It doesn't say anything about that in the rules...

Cure Wounds: Your target regains 1 life/ pay 2 divine spell points/ your target cannot be affected by this spell again for 4 rounds

If it's not possible then it's best just conserve your DP.

EDIT: Wait a second...

At the end of the round, all damage is tallied, and everyone makes a vitality roll. If damage exceeds a player's vitality, the player loses a life.

If you lose a life, you cannot act for the rest of the round.

Wouldn't that mean that Meynolds, me and the rest didn't lose an action?
It would seem that we only lose actions when hit by a death effect like Infict Wounds or Mind Thrust.

Jagg
2007-11-09, 11:07 PM
2 Questions for Abardam,

Sooo these new stances...

Whilst I am stunned I can still use one stance

1)
IF I choose to hide this round, What does this mean for those like Meynolds that are seeking me? I merely ask as it states in your explanation that it breaks all connections at the start of your round.

Currently there appears to be no connections.

Does this mean I can be found this round if someone seeks me?

2) There does not appear to be a seek limit. Can I only seek one person or can I seek multiple connections?

JAGG

Abardam
2007-11-09, 11:37 PM
Recall: Raiser shield body'd Jagg, so Orzel hit him instead. Jagg doesn't lose a life.

@GoC: I'm pretty sure I put something in about the phases. Otherwise, there would be no benefit to going first for non-mind thrust/inflict wounds people. EDIT: In the spoiler under Order of Events. EDIT2: It (Metaphysical) doesn't stack with itself, but you haven't used it yet anyway.

@Jagg: 1) They're going to find you. 2) One per round, but multiple connections are permitted.

2007-11-12, 09:35 AM
First off: to everyone who declares actions like: "Attack someone who attacks X," or "Shout Y to everyone who attacks Z," I'd prefer it if you'd not do that, because for one thing, in the case of multiple options, it might make the choice biased; for another thing, it might target someone who is using Stealth, where you would normally have no knowledge of the action. And another thing, I'm lazy and I don't want to have to think about the actions beyond the targets that you list. :o

Round 2

The Minotaur targets Orzel (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1368835)!

Shouts
Fredricus: Everybody to the Limit! Meynolds, Fleeing Coward, Fredricus

Main Phase

The Minotaur hunts Orzel (who is looking for Eldritch Knight) down and brings its axe down on him (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1368839)! Orzel barely manages to roll out of the way!
Jagg, in the center of the maze, is recovering from his energy wave. Suddenly, behind him, Meynolds leaps over the wall and lands a crushing blow (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1368844)... on the space where Jagg was just standing! Raiser Blade arrives, and calls the spirit of Chaos to aid him, but he does not notice Heretic, who stabs Jagg (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1368846)! Jagg is impaled by Heretic's weapon, and takes 9 damage! He loses 1 vitality! Fredricus falls on Jagg (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1368850)then, merely scratching him (1 damage) but nicking a major artery! Jagg loses 1 more vitality, and is wounded for 3 rounds!
Raiser turns around to help Jagg, but just then Fleeing Coward strikes his back with a palm for 3 damage! Calamity adds more injury to injury with a powerful slash (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1368848) to Raiser's midsection for 5 damage! Raiser bleeds for 2 damage! Almighty Salmon also arrives, and so does Dr Bath, and Captain van der Decken.
Kasz finds Khaldan, who is being mauled by the inactivity lions!
GoC finds Streakster and manifests Metaphysical Weapon; Streakster heals him for 2 life.

Jagg loses a life! Raiser Blade also loses a life! Khaldan is mauled!

SPRINT!!

Fleeing Coward
2007-11-14, 08:10 AM
So how does sprint work against initiative?
And if sprint bypasses initiative, would stunning the target prevent it from sprinting?

Abardam
2007-11-14, 12:49 PM
Sprint takes effect on the initiative. Stun would not work against sprint, because all effects of attacks (other than damage (this is the deal-damage type of damage I'm talking about here)) take effect at the end of the round.

Also, shouts are getting pretty ridiculous now. Should've capped them...

@Orzel: ok

Round 3

Shouts: Dr Bath orders Almighty Salmon, Fleeing Coward, Castaras, Heretic, and Calamity (and himself? how do you order yourself) to Charge!
Streakster does likewise for Meynolds, Fredricus, himself, GoC, Captain van der Decken and Khaldan!

Charge Phase

The legion takes revenge!
Almighty Salmon slices into Raiser (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1373235) for 6 damage! Fleeing Coward palm strikes Jagg for 3 damage! Heretic attacks Jagg, but it is only a scratch (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1373239) (1 damage)! Calamity tries to attack Raiser, but he is blocked (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1373241)! Dr Bath palm strikes Raiser for 3 damage! Streakster is evaded by Jagg (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1373243)! Meynolds merely scratches (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1373245) Raiser (for 1)! Fredricus deals 5 damage to both with a word of might! GoC strikes a critical area (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1373247) for 8 damage to Jagg! Captain van der Decken cautiously attacks, but Jagg parries his thrust (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1373249)! Khaldan opens up wounds on Raiser for 1 life damage!

Raiser sustains 15 damage, and bleeds some more for 2 extra damage! He loses 2 lives, plus 1 more! Jagg took 17 damage, plus 2 more! He loses 9 lives! Both collapse under the overwhelming might of the vengeful masses!

Main Phase

The Minotaur comes upon the captain (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1373251)! It swings its axe, but the captain heard him coming and ducks under it (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1373256)! Orzel overchannels to mentally own (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1373258) it! However, the strain makes him take 4 damage!
Kasz happens upon the corpse of Raiser Blade and stabs it for some reason.

Orzel survives the strain (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1373262)!

Eldritch Knight and Castaras are mauled!

Would an empowered inflict wounds be treated as an attack for the purposes of Whirlwind attack?

Cause if it is not, then I cast empowered inflict wounds on EK.
If it is, I cast empowered inflict wounds on Fleeing Coward

:smalleek:
Override code 101833!
Streakster casts empowered cure wounds on himself!

Streakster: This is the cooling off period after a linching. A lot of people are just waiting to see who to attack next. Don't try and attack anyone until the next round unless you want to become the fourth Funkyodor...

Dodging Streakster
Sticking with Whirlwind Attack

If you are attacking me only because I am weakened, you will find more resistance than you bargained for. Attacking the weak who has not sought to harm you will only cause others to recognize you as a threat, and they will deal with you.

Round 4

Main Phase

The minotaur picks Almighty Salmon (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1376781)! It swings its huge axe... but it is blocked by Fleeing Coward (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1376786)! Almighty Salmon retaliates (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1376813), but the minotaur is able to dodge!

Calamity strikes the minotaur in a vital spot (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1376790), causing bleeding and 3 damage! Dr Bath strikes it on the same spot with his palm for another 3 damage! Khaldan attacks it too, but his weapon ineffectively hits only tough hide! Orzel palmstrikes for 3 damage! Fredricus swings powerfully, connecting and chopping off its left arm (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1376795) for 8 damage! Meynolds, not one to be outdone, dismembers it too, separating its right arm from its body (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1376800) for another 8 damage! The minotaur was holding the axe in its... right arm (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1376808)! Meynolds quickly snatches the axe!
Minotaur Axe [passive]: This axe looks crude, but it is good at what it does (e.g. cleaving the skulls of one's foes). Whenever you wield the Minotaur Axe, you gain Damage+, but lose Attack-, as you are not a minotaur and are unaccustomed to such a large, unwieldy weapon.
Captain van der Decken and Streakster both cure themselves (by 1 life and 2 lives, respectively). Fleeing Coward enhances his teammate's weapon. GoC raises a zombie from Jagg's corpse.

Kasz gets mauled!

Think carefuly about that.
If you Empower an Inflict you won't have any DP left for emergencies.
It may not be worth it depending on how much of a threat you think Khaldan is.

Round 5

Shouts:
Streakster orders GoC, Jagg's recently-animated body, and Meynolds, and himself too, to charge!
Fleeing Coward bestows his power upon Almighty Salmon, Dr Bath, Calamity, Heretic, and Castaras!

Pre-Main Phase:
Streakster opens up wounds on Khaldan with a touch!
Zombiejagg groans and scratches at Khaldan (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1381228) for 2 damage!
Meynolds raises the Minotaur Axe high and charges across the arena thunderously, but he trips on a rock (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1381231) and falls on his face just before Khaldan!
GoC raisesers Raisers raiserses Raisesreses raises Raiser! (Incidentally, as what type of undead? No statistical reason, purely for flavor purposes.)

Khaldan's wound (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1381237) seems not to be infected...

Main Phase:
Kasz drops down on GoC after he completes his unholy ritual and, though Streakster tries to protect his teammate, KO's GoC with a sap (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1381333) for 6 (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1381233) damage!
Heretic cuts into soft Zombiejagg flesh (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1381248) for 8 damage!
Orzel blows Kasz's mind (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1381250)! He takes 4 damage for overchanneling!
Fredricus joins in, striking at Kasz (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1381252), but his slash is turned into merely a minor scratch!
Fleeing Coward generates a Metaphysical Weapon for himself!
Captain van der Decken cures some of Fredricus' wounds!

GoC resists the damage (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1381254)! Orzel reels from the mental strain (http://invisiblecastle.com/find.py?id=1381261)!

No one is mauled! (Shock, awe, etc.)

Meynolds|1d6|0|6|[/table]Announcer: Now the whole of Team Black is under GoC's sway! Hmm... I think we need to spice things up, a little! Send in the Ungerladon!

A massive gate slowly rises, and out of it steps a massive creature with massive teeth, massive claws, a massive tail, and a massive shell covering its back.

The Ungerladon
1d8 attack, 1d12 damage, 1d6 defense, 1d8 vitality, 1d6 psi, 3 lives
Whirlwind Attack
Fortitude
Massive Shell (reduces damage from all sources by 1)
Each round, the Ungerladon attacks a random target from a list of people who attacked it in last round. If no one attacked it, the list includes all players and/or creatures. If more than 3 people attack it, it uses its massive tail to attack all those people instead of a random target.

Ride 'Em [stance]: Roll Attack against the Ungerladon's Attack. If you exceed it, it cannot attack you on that round. Also, if you are successful, you may only affect (e.g. attack, heal, etc) the Ungerladon and other players who are Riding as well; and no player who is not Riding may affect you.
If you fail this roll, you take 4 damage.

Wednesday! The next round is on Wednesday.
