    Hehe, just kidding.

    Hmm.

    Should Bran try to make and apply the anti-poison poultice, or should he just attack?

    I mean, it may not be all too obvious that Ashala made her save.

    I had her shake it off and say she's fine. Hopefully there's no followup saves though, right?

    It might be nice to have the anti-poison stuff ready in case something happens to someone else. To save on healing spells, I figure. If the alarm that Aditi felt is legit, perhaps we'll be needing the spells for other things. Maybe this wyvern is under someone's control. :O Like in WoW! J/K.

    Hoo, yes. Let's hope.
    I'd rather not watch my friends: be stabbed, turn green, and keel over. >.<
    In fact, I'd be rather fine with them not being threatened at all, actually. It is a bit of an adrenaline rush though, so I'd understand a player wanting in on the action.

    Hang on priestesses, casters, and hirelings! * :O * Dural is among them! ( - and maybe Aditi. I didn't catch if she rode up with the others or not. )

    And most of us back there will probably not survive a single hit from one of those things. Intense!

    I, for one, could live just fine without ever experiencing the adrenaline rush of likely being killed.

    I don't know, did I? She rode up enough to get the first wyvern securely in medium range of her longbow...but Aditi wouldn't have rode any closer than about 5-10 feet after where she estimated the range wouldn't interfere with her shot (I'm not sure if she could estimate that precisely enough that she would stop by 130 feet, or if she'd stay right behind Ash on the principle that she doesn't know what a THAC0 is but the closer she is the easier the shot should be to make).

    I envisioned Ash and Brandon rode to the fore to absorb the initial assault. And Nathros must have dismounted and moved to the front line in order to set his spear for the charge. I envisioned him as standing between the mounted Ash and Bran on the front line.

    Anyone looking to take a shot (Mycah, Alanna, Aditi, and Dural) rode up to just behind them so as to be able to fire as soon as possible. I assumed from descriptions that everyone wanted to be able to get their shot in as early as possible without charging out in front of your armored members.

    Behind that group is a great mass of woodsmen, young priestesses, and Neela, who stopped their forward riding and are looking for a way to be useful.

    That's what I thought. The wand of paralyzation has 60 feet range, so if one round is not enough to get the wyvern above the priestesses/hirelings into range I'll edit my post.

    Hahah, I suppose it's not for everyone. In real life, I don't much require it either. I certainly don't seek it out. I leave that stuff to my siblings.

    ---

    That's how I envisioned it too.

    ---

    Oh, I guess Dural needed to ride up to cast his magic missile spell cause it's 150' range, so you would have had to move up about 10-20 feet.

    So really it's just the priestesses, Neela, and the Hirelings back there.
    I guess Neela could Magic Missile one of them.
    And then the Priestesses can heal anyone who might be injured, but that will put them in more danger to get to them.

    I just hope the paralyzation effect works.

    I think he moved up first in IC #292 to use his sling.

    Roland: Just realized that in my 2nd to the last IC post, Bran dropped his sword and shield in order to make the antidote poultice.

    However, Bran wasn't using his sword and shield at the time. He was using his bow.

    Okay if I redact that so that he still has his sword and can engage in melee with the wyvern just like Ashala is?

    Please let me know also if he is close enough to use his sword. Bran was riding after Ash, so presumably if she can hit the wyvern, perhaps he can also.

    Is there any way to angle to wand to catch only the wyvern? If not how many people would I hit with it?

    You can retcon it to be that he dropped his bow since that's what he had in hand.

    No matter where he is, at a minimum, it'll hit anyone in melee with the beast. It projects a cone 60' long and 30' diameter at the far end.

    He could reposition to a place where friendly fire is less likely (though that'll take time and could put him in the line of fire from missile attackers), but no angle is perfect nor is judgment about precise dimensions of the cone.

    I can't be sure, but I think we just killed the 2nd wyvern. It was already seriously injured, and Ash did 10 and Bran did 6.

    Note re: Nathros, this game uses a slight variation on the Keeping Characters Alive rule on RC p. 266. He can be tended to this round before his first Save vs. death and after that must make another save if injured or at the end of each 10 minutes at < 0 hp.

    That would be p. 266.

    Hope that Bran's shouted orders are the wisest course of action for everyone involved.

    MMM: Since Nathros is very badly wounded (took 20 points of damage), please have Alanna use her gem for a Cure Serious Wounds instead of casting Cure Light Wounds.

    Edit: I guess if they aren't the wisest, then one or more people will ignore them.

    By the way, what does an Ointment of Soothing do anyway?

    Those orders were the wisest I could figure.

    I haven't heard what Neela has been doing, but I figure she's been using her magic and it's failed perhaps. I thought she could cast magic missile, so I expected to see one of those fly out at some point. Maybe I missed it though. >.<
