    Hey Gremlin, just re-read your BG for Arvad. If his Dad was human and his Mom was elven, how did he inherit his Draconic lineage as it relates to his Arcane roots?

    Hmm, hadn't thought it out in detail, but maybe his grandpa got around.He IS a pretty old elf. And the draconic heritage might just not have shown itself physically in Arvad's mom. or maybe she hid it with magic.
    Or it could just be from further back in either parent's bloodline. After all, Arvad's not a half-dragon, just someone with a bit of dragon blood.
    I personally prefer the idea of his grandpa wooing a dragoness and never getting around to introducing her to their daughter and grandson. Would make for a real awkward conversation later on, for sure.
    But whatever fits, I guess.

    Hey Walrus, aren't Halflings usually cheerful and happy go lucky? Your Monk seems pretty subdued. Too much emotional trauma?

    What's your ruling on using the quarterstaff 2-handed? (versatile allows it to be used that way) Would I still get the bonus unarmed attack or do I have to choose between the two?

    Change your quarterstaff to a monk equivalent so a: three section staff, a Bo, Eku or Dragon Pole. Essentially same damage 1d8 for two handed.

    As for the extra attack, monk weapons are not unarmed attacks so no, you would not get the extra attack from from later Flurry of Blows or the like.

    If you were to have gauntlets or head-butting w/ a magical helm on sure I would consider those.

    No, what I'm asking is, if I use the staff two handed, does that count as an attack action using a monk weapon? ie. can I strike two handed with the staff, then make my martial arts bonus unarmed attack (ie. kick or punch) or my flurry of blows after using the staff that way? Or can I only use those features if I attack with the staff while using it one handed?

    Happy to call the staff whatever you like, if bo staff is something that exists in this world, then that's what it is ;)

    Ah okay I think I get what you are saying now. The answer is yes if you rp it out properly. E.g. if you are using a two handed monk weapon, I'm going to be expecting you are then following up w/ a kick or head butt or something?

    If so I'm okay with it if you RP out your fight sequence of "....flies into the air and..." Sound good?

    Battle map is here. I'll update it as ppl move. Place yourselves along the farthest two rows away from the scouts. Might need to zoom in on the image or download and then zoom.

    The circle is the stadium so nothing outside of that circle (if you haven't figured that out).

    You gain one d6 to use in combat. Once within the next 10 minutes, you can roll the die and add the number rolled to one ability check, attack roll, or saving throw. You can wait until after you roll your d20 before deciding to use the d6 die, but you must decide to use it before the GM says whether the roll succeeds or fails. Once the Bardic Inspiration die is rolled, it is lost and you can only have one at a time.

    I'll stand at O-22.

    Sorry, was at a wedding yesterday, so I've got little done this weekend. Now, firstly:
    Spoiler: Initiative
    Show

    (1d20+3)[20]


    I guess I'll position a very confused Arvad on square P-22, then. I'll get back to ya on the equipment. I'll likely go with Arvad picking up the exact same as I'd written on my sheet to begin with, since he doesn't need all that much stuff really, and to make it simpler. I'll adjust according to whether the price for his gear ends up being more or less than the 200 G we have to spend.

    EDIT: Done, Arvad now has gear for 195 Gold and a couple silver and copper. Close enough without going over. Plus, I ran out of space on his equipment list...

    Yep, 5 foot squares. For diagonal movements, first diag is 5ft second square is counted as 10 ft.

    Everyone except Talia is up.

    Going forward, please indicate which target you are attacking with your ranged attacks.

    Also it's up to you guys when you want to use your Inspiration/Luck rolls before I post up results of your original rolls.

    Hm...Walrus, you have your character picking up a weapon, dropping a weapon and using another weapon to attack all in one action. That seems like one too many tasks to still have it count as just one action.

    Since your last action was with the Bow, I had originally assumed the staff was just slung over your back this whole time?

    I assumed the bow remained in one hand, I scooped up the staff with the other, then simply dropped it when I got to the new spot. I can have slung it over my back if that works better. If you're not comfortable with the retcon, and picking it up and dropping it is too much to be considered a free action - I'll alter my post to leave it laying where I first dropped it.
