Edited in the surprise round attack.

Out of curiosity, can one of you guys cast Blood Wind somehow? :D

@Boz: From the looks of things, Sejanus couldn't possibly get a higher Init than you, so you might as well post your actions.

I don't recall a specific warmage fix coming into play. Why? What's wrong?

Nothing. Thought you were using this one, according to the character planning thread:

http://www.tgdmb.com/viewtopic.php?p=103905

If so, no Edge extra damage, but the targets that failed their saves would catch on fire.

Roasted gobbos get my vote. Beats Warmage Edge any day.

EDIT: Incidentally, that means I've got more skill points than I thought I did!

And it means you only spent a 2nd level spell slot just now. :D

Oh wow, I didn't even notice s/he'd moved the spell levels around. Hmm... I should probably look that over... but I doubt I care much. :P

Hmm... that looks like a lot better spell list than the original, doesn't it? Mass Enlarge Person as a 2nd level spell? That's quite nice... And Invisibility Sphere at 3rd...

I doubt there's too much trouble in using the new class features and the old spell list. It's up to you if there's any problem with having access to fireball early. :)

That IS cool!

And it makes a lot of sense for me to have a blast-specced mage have Fireball as a 2nd-level spell.

I disagree with the "create food and water" stuff myself. For me, warmages are all about "ZENRYOKU ZENKAI!!!" The army can have other guys for that stuff.

Let's see...

Unmatched in heaven. Unmatched on earth. Unmatched in hell. My skilled ? command. ? death scream ?! Exploding murder-cannon, BLAZE BOMB!!

Regardless of whether or not that's correct, I must now find an excuse to use the phrase "exploding murder-cannon". :D

My work
The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.

Mythweavers seems to be down, so I can't check Cade's movement speed. Could you guys who haven't posted your charcter stats into the character's thread hit the "generate statistic block" on your Mythweaver's sheets and copy and paste the result into your post in the character thread? I really like having at least the basics about a character on here, as sometimes those character hosting sites go down for extended periods. One I used to frequent went down permanently... and took several non-exportable character sheets of mine with it...

I like the Create Food and Water stuff, as historically providing food and water for your army has been one of the biggest limiting factors in warfare. So being able to do that from thin air would be quite useful for a mage specialized in fighting wars.

Also, all the Japanese stuff is wasted on me, as I don't speak a word of it, and don't care enough to look it up. I might make it out if you posted it in Chinese (mandarin) pinyin, though. ;)

Once I get back from class, if it's up, I'll post that stuff up. As for my speed, it's 40 (would be higher since larger creatures usually have higher speeds, but there's no rules about that so it's just base 30 +10 from my footgear, total 40 ft).

Regardless of whether or not that's correct, I must now find an excuse to use the phrase "exploding murder-cannon". :D

The first three are correct. Waga meirei wo yoku kike is "heed my command well". Nissen shinin no sakebu kikasete means "let the scream of two thousand corpses (dead) be heard". "Bakuretsu kousatsuhou, KAENDAMA!!" is literally "explosion(explosive) annihilation method, FIREBALL!!".

Although, I suppose there's no way you could have guessed which kanji I was using for kousatsuhou (it's a subtle reference to the anime Shadow Skill. I merely pronounced each kanji separately, as opposed to how they use it there, where it's pronounced kosappo).

Although, between Explosive Annihilation Method Fireball and Exploding Murder Cannon Blaze Bomb, I'm having a hard time deciding which one's cooler.

And..... we're BACK! :D

I was poking around at the gaming den board yesterday while BG was down (and I was bored), and came up with an idea for how to deal with consumables (potions, etc).

1) You can't cast spells from scrolls. They are only used to transfer spell knowledge.
2) Charged items like wands and staves DO count against your attuned 8 items (we're already doing this).
3) Potions we'll leave as-is (they don't count as attuned items, and only work once).
4) Other items we'll deal with on a case by case basis.
5) If a spell appears on the spell list of a core caster, then all magic items crafted which duplicate the effects of that spell must use it at the level it appears on the core list. So no trapsmith wands for ju!
6) As with crafting, you can't Wish for partially charged items.

I think this will work ok, since potions are limited to 3rd level spells and below. This gets rid of everyone just stocking up on 9th level scrolls and unloading each combat once you can afford it.

For the Candle of Invocation, I'm going to say that each individual can only use the Gate function of such an item once in their lifetime. It is kind of like a "get out of jail free" card from the gods (or whatever forces favor that character). So you could conceivably use one of these to bootstrap your way into the Wish economy, but that would be it for you until you or your party mates are capable of binding/traveling to some creature capable of granting wishes yourselves. So you better make sure you get everything you want with that candle! :D


Also, I noticed that the Tome Warmage that Kuro is using doesn't have any class skills listed (Koumei wrote it, and s/he thinks all classes should have all skills as class skills...). So I guess we'll just use the class skill list from the original warmage, but everything else from hers.

Incidentally, I miss the orb spells in that list. Must've read it wrong or something though.
