    There's also the fact that this hydra is being compelled by dark magic, so you're getting some HP knocked off it for free for each attack it makes now.

    I'm off to play Twilight Imperium, but if people haven't been moved appropriately (or another reading presented) then when I get back I will interpret it as best I can and wrap up.

    So the way I'm reading Arcane Whirlwind is that 1 action = 1 slide. That seems to line up with what you said, Night, and from what I've read on a few other sites. I think you could use 3 minors to move the same target 3 times, but the size of the zone doesn't make that too feasible.

    Well after all that, I just realized that I'd forgotten about the Hydra's free action attacks and since DEN was adjacent, he could take his mark OA...

    Congratulations.

    That fight seemed more punishing than I had thought it would be, but I can't say I'm upset. I did say in the recruitment to expect casualties! Just trying to get a rough feeling for what you guys can take.

    Any comments or feedback on this? Should I have shortened the time between the tidal rise turns?

    I loved it! I feel that every encounter should use all encounter powers and maybe a daily, and that was right on for me

    It wasn't a pushover and it didn't TPK, I'd say the challenge level was appropriate enough. :P Now that foul beasty has met its end, mind sharing the source for the thing? I've been curious.

    Re: the tides, that depends on what you want to accomplish really. It wouldn't have been unfair to speed them up a bit, I think. At the speed they were I could've chosen to take more damage to do more damage, but mostly didn't have to make that choice. I don't mind working out my average DPR if you want to be able to time things in solo encounters.

    I like unexpected creatures in combat encounters. I pretty much enjoyed the fight as well as roleplaying Hakka in the midst of difficult situations (the bats were a pain, and Hakka even had to spend his daily item power for better accuracy).

    And yes, the tidal rise was just as it needed to be. I didn't need to go slower, but if it went faster then probably would be a perfect chance for the characters to test our swimming skills (although that would be make things very tough for melee characters).

    Wdwune - I have to say that the font you use for Hakka's speech really creeps me out. I love it :small cool: It definitely lends an alien feel to your roleplaying.

    Heh, thank you! I tried to use the strangest font I could find on the list. I could use any other unlisted coded font like this one, but I think Comic Sans did the job pretty well.

    My bad with the level 1 daily- Arcane whirlwind is reliable, but less powerful than my at will power. (which slides and slows multiple targets) I may want to repick my spells after the current mission.

    Combat seemed rough, but I as actually more annoyed at the first combat, when I had enemies completely isolated and NPCs charged in anyway.

    Guys, I'm leaving town today but I'll be returning thursday (I don't own one of those fancy phones, you know). I hope that doesn't delay the game too much. If you're in a hurry, Nightgaun can NPC Hakka for a while. Sorry about that, and see you soon!

    I used up both Inspiring Words on DEN actually, but let me see if there's something I can do.

    edit: looks like I can use Inspiring Word so long as you all are willing to take a 10 minute rest instead of a 5 minute rest.

    By my tally, here's what you're at:

    DEN: 4 remaining
    Draj: 7 remaining
    Hakka: 5 remaining
    Kriv: 7 remaining
    Sathris: 2 remaining

    I'm sure that's right then, the map/sheet just didn't want to load for whatever reason yesterday.

    In any case, I need to heal to go on. Grigor's heal isn't surgeless, is it? :P Assuming it's "spend a surge, gain surge value + 2d6", I'd say give one to Sathris and one to Den, everyone else has surges to spare anyway. (I'll post IC once we've got it all worked out.)

    It's 2d6. In fact, I just rolled for it and oddly enough 8 for both (5+3 and 2+6).

    Yes, surgless is rather the point of his little cantrip. He could use them both on you, if that's what you lot decide to ask him to do.

    Hmm. Alright, in that case I suppose that's probably best. DEN can burn a surge and still have enough left for basically all the possible in-combat healing we can get anyway. Will post IC when I get a chance, soonish.

    DEN burns a surge, putting him at 77hp out of base 80 with 3 surges remaining.
