    Hoooooly cow, I thought for sure Hinjo was a goner when I saw that disintegrate spell hit him. Thank goodness he was in good enough shape to avoid death.

    In SoD, Redcloak casts Disintegrate and Shatter, and uses an untyped Smite ability, all of which are features of the Destruction domain.

    Wow, had me thinking Shinjo was out of the picture there.
    Imagine if, when those stormtroopers stopped ol' Obi Wan, and asked about his droids, he bellowed "YES, THESE ARE THE DROIDS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR!! PREPARE TO ENGAGE IN HONORABLE COMBAT!!" and whipped out his lightsabre.

    Not particularly.

    Miko is the classic example of how NOT to play a paladin. Sorry, but she was.

    Hinjo was going up against a bad guy that has at least a few extra levels. And honestly, his act of making Redcloak burn up his disintegrate on him (instead of say, punching a nice big hole in the BOAT) was an unintentionally good thing for the good guys. Additionally, Hinjo has shown himself to be a pretty good character (and probably the NPC that Roy's player is getting to use until he gets raised, hehehe). He also has a sense of humor, as well as some rather good cunning, if not necessarily keen strategic sense.

    And there's Lien. PALADIN WITH SHARK MOUNT FOR WIN!

    No, that looked very much like a failed save. I guess Redcloak rolled poorly on damage. :-)

    Yikes! Might be time to seriously consider that "Strategic Retreat."

    Haley has a LONG way to go, and I don't see how she could get herself, Belkar and Roy's body across the pier with all the hobgoblins in the way.

    Um... ow. Thank the Twelve Gods for paladin-boosted saving throws. So Team Evil loses a Fiendish Octopus, and Team AC gets their leader severely crispified(but only partially). Calling Dr. Bitterleaf, you're wanted to perform a hobgoblin-ectomy at Dock # 3...

    Oh. Wait, are the docks technically within the confines of a city? In that case, not good for Belkar...

    Then again, is AC still technically a 'city' as opposed to burning mountain of stone and wood? Not to be grim, but that could be a loophole around the whole MoJ... gimme a break, I'm grasping at straws here people...

    Anyway, good showing Rich.
    Now if you don't mind, I am somewhat preoccupied telling the laws of physics to shut up and sit down.

    Um, ouchie?!

    Things might not look good at this point, but zombies aren't going to do too much to help, with Durkon there to turn them. Healing spells get used up all day long, but them turning attempts are always there when needed. Now, the land based critters that might be summoned? THAT could be trouble. My guess?

    Um, at this point, EVERY major character, good or evil, has been beaten badly at least once. Redcloak himself was beaten senseless by Soon just a little while ago.

    I think you're looking for an authorial agenda where there is none.
