I got a bit confused when we were doing those initial attacks resulting in tripping the Barghest. Did his attack damage me or not? Just need to make sure I keep track of my health since everyone else seems to be going down. :P

Yeah, you got hit once for about 31 damage, IIRC. I had mistakenly added your +4 dodge bonus to AC again, when you'd actually already added it. So one of his attacks got through.

First attack was 30 damage. Yea or nay on that AoO, now? I've got a natural reach of 20 feet and he's just walking around like no one's there.

Well... he's not being a complete moron about it. :P The Pit is laying at about Q11 (more or less right under Xuusovic), which is just outside of your reach, isn't it? The worg rider that was in the building had it, and then moved out to the south and died there.

Happily your reach now equals his (with his weapon), so you shouldn't take an AoO just for moving up and hitting him, as long as you don't move any closer than you have to.  :p

He won't be able to actually pick up the Pit this round either, as he's already used a standard and move action.

One of Xuusovic's cloakers is also still sitting there with Mirror Image going.

Gotcha. Just a little hard since it's impractical to update the map after every movement. Don't forget that I moved forward 5 feet, but otherwise I trust you to know if he's in my reach or not. Just let me know what squares he's occupying by my next turn. :)

Also, Fixed. :)

I think he's just outside of it. Let's say he is just barely on the map, to the right of where Raoul is currently drawn (squares L&M 15). Half of his body is still on the other map. He can't quite reach the Pit from there, but he could with a 5' step. If you take a 5' step after his, you'll be within reach of him and set up to full attack him after his turn is over (assuming he's still alive by then :P ).

Raoul, as we said earlier, is not actually at that spot. He's like 35 feet from where the barghest was originally drawn, on another map. After the barghest's move, he is no longer within it's threatened reach.

MS Paint. :P I've been getting the maps from here, and I've just downloaded images from the SRD or whatever, and shrunk then down to fit on there.

If you guys want to use "minis" for your characters, I'd be happy to use them on the maps in the future, instead of just putting a blank square with your name. Just show/send me the image you'd like to use.

Does Thicket of Blades negate Tumble checks to avoid AoOs? I never read it that way, but looking at it again, I guess I can see where you'd be coming from. The Barghest doesn't seem like he'd be able to beat RJ's check otherwise. :D

The way I read it any and all movement, including 5' steps, tumbling, etc, draws an AoO from someone with Thicket of Blades. That's the way I've always heard it described on the boards, also.

He also actually has a good Tumble check, but hasn't had an occasion to use it yet. :P

Well, he was enlarged and seems to be wearing heavy armor, so I assumed it wouldn't be that big. :D

Incidentally, Ris-Janna voluntarily faisl the save vs. Time Hop. She's gonna be a bit mad about being shunted around in time again, though. :D
She also calls dibs on reducing the barghest to negative hp, tying him up so he's helpless, and CdGing him for calling her 'little girl'. :D I think someone has a complex...

Nah, he's just wearing a chain shirt, not heavy armor. His visible items are: a guisarme, chain shirt, belt, boots gloves, and a bow.


Edit:
Sooo... a couple of potentially nerf-worthy items: those eggshell grenades, and Iron Heart Surge. What are we going to do with those? :P

The grenades blind with no save on a ranged touch attack... which is about as good as an 8th level spell, except the eggs are so cheap they're basically free in this game... I think that's a bit too good. If we allowed the target to wipe the dust out of their eyes as a full round action, I think it might be ok.

IHS is of course ridiculous in its generic open-endedness. I think an easy fix for it is to have it only work for the person using it, even if it is used against an area effect. So that person could, for example, become temporarily immune to an AMF or Web, etc. Even that is a pretty damned good interpretation of it. I know no one has it, but that could change, and I might use NPCs with it in the future.

NEKKETSU! MODE!! ON!!!

Also, the grenades REMAIN good if you allow the rub-off, though only for a limited time. If you seriously depend on the stuff, you're gonna be screwed the second something with blindsight comes along.

I'm okay with IHS ending the effect "just for you", except for dramatically-appropriate moments of course.  :D

EDIT: Gah, forgot my turn was after the barghest's AND Cade's. Sorry. Just punch me in at the correct initiative... >.>;;

So where's our sweet, sweet XP?

And don't tell us we didn't get a level for this.  :p

:lmao Yeah, you all go up a level. I'm going to just say that Ris-Janna catches up with you guys, also. I forget exactly how long it normally takes to catch up after buying off a LA, but I think she'd be close at least. So you're all level 8. I don't think we're actually going to use XP for anything, since I said you don't spend it for creating magic items. So unless someone cares, I'm not going to bother giving out exact numbers. :P

For spells/powers that use XP, we'll deal with them when/if it comes up. I think for most of those, I'll also drop the XP costs. It's just too much of a pain in the neck.


For magic items... hmm... you guys are at the point where you actually bump up two levels for item levels. So after this, you should have one each of the following level items:
9th      4,001-5,000   gp
10th      5,001-6,500   gp
11th      6,501-8,000   gp
12th      8,001-10,000 gp

And then the rest would be 8th and lower level.

If you want, you can just add powers to your items to bring them up to the appropriate level, or you can add new ones. We can RP this out, or not, whatever you'd like. We'll say the barghest and his minions had also accumulated a decent stash of things including money and maybe items that they hadn't identified and used. So any new items could come from that, also.


I thought about adding on a few high level items to the barghest and his followers, so it would make sense if you guys found them, but... then I thought that they were plenty hard without giving them high level magic items. :P I also would have had to have guessed what you guys would like, and I didn't want to bother with it.



It looks like they're updating the equipment section of the Tome stuff in their SRD, also, and it even includes prices now! :P So let's use what they've got so far: http://dungeons.wikia.com/wiki/Races_of_War_%283.5e_Sourcebook%29/Equipment

Yay! So I get to take my first level in Telflammar Shadowlord and choose between another level of Swordmage or a Cleric dip. Hmm... :plot Let's see... The original plan is Fighter 2/Rogue 3/Swordsage 2/TFS 5/Full BAB 2/SS 6 (with the order of the last six levels not fixed). That comes out to IL 14 and BAB 16 with partial BAB. However, we're not likely to actually get that high, so maybe hoping for Shadow Blink at all is a bit moot. :D
I'll probably dip Cleric for Shadow and some other domain (maybe Time - yay, thematic!). Also, Ris-Janna gets her first taste of spells. :D
