Mind if I go "WHEE!!" from the news?

Incidentally, I miss the orb spells in that list. Must've read it wrong or something though.
It might have been an oversight. If they're not there, just add them in. I think they're ok at the levels listed for the official warmage, but I might listen to arguments otherwise. :D Those spells are generally regarded as being pretty decent for their levels, right?


And.... I realized last night that I totally forgot about this:
Quote
I'll have you roll on a Wild Surge table every time you cast a "traditional" spell. I'm not sure exactly how it will work, but I'd say you'll probably only have a 50% chance of them working correctly, but I'm open to discussing this. Maybe 50% chance to work normally, 25% chance to just fail outright, 20% chance of doubling their power, and 5% chance of something else entirely happening.

Since it was my fault, and we've already described the destruction, we'll say that this time it can't fail. But I still want to roll just to see if it does increased damage, or something.

So we'll say that a roll of 1-50 means it works normally, 51-75 fails entirely, 76-95 doubles in strength, and 96-100 something weird happens (DMs choice :D).

1d100=94

So... lucky you! Your Fireball did double damage! That means that the worgs that failed their saves are dead.

Sweet shit! What does that mean for the worg that walked up to Marlowe? Was that one of the worgs that were hit by the fireball, or the worg that was outside the AoE?

Also, I suppose I should take my turn now. :D

Yeah, go ahead and take your turn.

Also, Marlowe didn't actually do anything during the surprise round, did he? So he could have actually been studying the goblin then, and he could go ahead and attack it this round, since I said he could see it in the village before you killed the bat.

I'm just happy the boards came up again. I almost feel like we should have a backup for when they go down. :P

I just know these awesome rolls will come back to bite me when I need to make a few massive damage saves... :P

Heh, me too. I had a tab open and refreshed it every few minutes, just in case. :lol

EDIT: If the first attack is enough to kill the worg, RJ would be more than happy to gut one of the gobbos with the second instead. ;)

The first attack brought him to exactly 0, so he would be staggered but not dead. So do what you want.

Also, isn't the Shadowcloak ability of Umbral Awn limited to the first round of an encounter? And you used it after killing the bat, right? I'd consider this whole thing one encounter, until either one side is all dead or flees. Or do you have another ability called Cloak of Shadows?

I guess you didn't actually use it, did you? And this is technically the first round of combat, since the bat thing was the surprise round. Ok, all kosher I guess. ;)

In that case, she'll take the trouble and kill it dead. No point in leaving a job half finished. :D

Nope, I didn't as there was no enemy around to see me at the time, other than the bat.

Ok... so Mindsight is going to be a huge pain in my ass. I knew that going in. Are there any ways to actually block it, or hide from a creature that has it, though? If we go by the RAW, it seems like nothing blocks it at all, not Mindblank, 10 feet of lead, nor the Darkstalker feat. I guess an AMF would, though, unless your Telepathy was Ex.

Do you guys want to play it this way? Remember that if you're using it, it is fair game for me, too. :D

Honestly I think mindsight is 4 kinds of cheesy and I was hoping to delay it entering my own game as long as possible (though I know it's inevitable).

I'll defer judgement to my teammates.

So who's init is it now? Sejanus's?

Xuuvosic's (and a bunch of his minions, who have been delaying), then Sejanus'.

Mindsight is like a steel-toed foot in the DM's testicles. Given there's not much one can do with unintelligent creatures (can't pick up on that, right?), it's hard to get around it at all. Unless you could command unintelligent minions remotely. Just be glad it's not persistent touchsight or something.

Remember the good news. If the minion is targeted or his mind's incapacitated, radar's out.

I suppose that'd work, if you're fine with that? Should I go ahead and post?

Of course I'm fine with it. I suggested it.  :D

I guess technically everyone should have gotten a surprise round, since you all basically knew about the enemies, and the bat, before Agita attacked. So let's just say that everyone on "team PC" got to act in the surprise round. So Kuro's fireball would have went off then, and Cade could add another 40 feet to his movement.

So RJ's and Marlowe's current actions are the lead of the real first round of combat, and no one else has acted yet in that round but them. I don't think this is going to change much, but we do need to get actions from Xuusovic and Sejanus before we go on much more...

Oh yeah Boz, I saw a weapon enhancement in the MiC that does what you wanted on your crossbow. It is a +1 equivalent that lets you reload a light x-bow as a free action, from an extra-dimensional chamber that holds 50 bolts. I don't remember exactly how we decided to do that, but I'd rather use the existing item instead of homebrewing one.

[spoiler]Oh christ... you guys are going to murderize my NPCs in no time at all... That was against a stock MM goblin, but it would take down a LOT bigger stuff.  :lol :lmao

To be fair, he needed to wait three rounds to get that much damage off. :)

And I'm bound to miss at least one of my attacks. :D

I know Xuuvosic and his minions were pretty much waiting until half the PCs attacked/were attacked, but that still doesn't cover Sejanus, and HoV might still want to move his group closer to the action.

It's only 1 round of study for the Tome assassin. But still, he does have to wait...

InnaBinder PMed me and said he's been busy, but he will hopefully post later today. With Marlowe's attack, that is half the PCs. So Xuuvosic's minions can act now, as I just posted in the encounter thread.  :D
