    Mellia thinks that if you can get away with something there's no reason to not do it, all the fairness and chivalry of the knights didn't worked for her so she makes a pact with the hexblade to get power easy and quickly but her Knight and the rest of his order noticed this and she was casted away without completing her training or attaining her title as Knight.
    Now she has just started her career as adventurer.

    Super happy to be picked for This! Here's my character data again

    Rainbow Scales

    Reference image:
    Spoiler: Image

    Spoiler: Bio
    Show
    As an egg, Rainbow was taken from his home as the spoils of war by the cruel pirate sorceress Syra, Captain of the Storm. She raised him aboard her pirate vessel, teaching him her cruel ways in hopes that he would one day make a fine warrior to add to her crew. When he was still only a few years old, Rainbow was held within the brig, cramped against piles of loot and other refuse, only being fed the rotted corpses of the captain's foes. One day, an old man and a boy were thrown into the cell next to his. When brought food, the man gave everything to the boy. Why would he do this? Rainbow thought, perplexed by the man's kindness. He spent each night of his imprisonment contemplating this moment. How could it be that one would give away food to another when they themselves are starving?
    Once he had grown and proven to be a capable warrior, Rainbow was allowed on the battlefield to help his captain plunder. However, much to Syra's surprise, although he was unfed Rainbow refused to harm the innocent sailors they were supposed to be attacking. He had finally realized why the old man had given up his food for the boy. "The strong must feed the weak" he told his captain. Furious by this refusal, Syra cast Rainbow off the ship into the open sea. He was more capable than she had thought, however. Rainbow swam to land. With no home or family, Rainbow began to wander.

    Alright! Let's get this party started with the IC thread!

    http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showt...ck-of-the-Dead


    It's easiest for me to reference your rolls if you just spoiler them in the IC thread, like this.

    Roy slashes at Xykon with his greatsword.

    Spoiler: rolls

    (1d20+14)[26], damage (2d6+8)[10]



    Or, for a check

    Elan attempts to sneak up on the goblins
    Spoiler: roll

    (1d20+2)[9]

    Oh snap, critical hit.
    You can't roll in an edited post. In the future, either roll preemptively for crits, or, when you get a crit, roll in the OOC.

    Still, minimum damage is enough for a kill here.

    I don't care what order you go in, as long as you go in the correct times relative the enemies. That'll be more important in battles with real initiative.

    @Barbarian MD
    Where does Rob move to? You say he stalks forward, but not where he ends up.

    48 hours we've been waiting on Ale', but it's the weekend so not sure how much leeway you want to give. What post rate are you expecting from us?

    I'd like daily, but can understand if it's more like every 2 days.

    I'll PM Al, but if by this time tomorrow there's no reply, we'll skip to the skeleton.

    I skipped Al.

    Should this continue, more drastic measures than turn skips will be taken.

    On a brighter note, back to your turn!

    Would recommend NPCing a basic attack when skipping PCs, rather than ignoring them entirely. Otherwise your encounter balance is thrown all to heck. Probably doesn't apply to this one, since it's (hopefully) in the bag.

    Yeah, probably right.

    You guys can go in whatever order you're available, I'll probably just use side initiative the whole time. It's nice and simple, unless someone has serious objections.

    I thought we were all in this region because of reports of undead activity. Reading the pitch, I see that this is, in fact, incorrect. On the other hand, Rowen's comment that they are common in this region is relative to the usual frequency of undead attacks, which may just mean more than once in a decade.

    I wanted to ask: am I going too fast for anyone? I don't want people to feel like they're not getting a chance to do stuff because I'm constantly checking my phone and posting as soon as I see an update. I can slow down if desired. I want this to be fun for everybody.
