    "Very well, open the door. You're the caster, give me instructions where to put 10 feet spread to get most of the guards. Do not threaten any of them unless they react to us. I'll try to get us all in before we have to engage."

    OOC: as soon as the doors open, Edmond casts Hypnotic pattern in the air which fascinates
    those affected. Will DC to resist: 14; without concentration, it will last 2 rounds, Edmond will maintain it only if all threats are fascinated...HAHA! max HD affected!

    "I'd rather get those above, less chance to affect patients, doctors probably don't represent viable threat and we have two maidens close and personal, rather then out of reach."

    OOC: @Dr Simon, I just need line of sight, range is 150', shouldn't be an issue

    Mhairi

    Grasping the boys' intent, Mhairi gulped a little. It was one thing to thumb your nose at authority. Quite another to actively attack Royal guards.

    "Red!" she called softly. "I'm coming back up. Give me a hand." she added, before beginning to scale the wall again.

    Ignatius waits until everyone is in place. If it seems that no one inside is coming to investigate, he calls out, " In the name of the Queen, lay down your arms and surrender! " And if still no one comes out, he casts his spell of sanctuary and opens the door himself.
    -Kaodi

    Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
    Is the immediate jewel of their souls.
    Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing;
    'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
    But he that filches from me my good name
    Robs me of that which not enriches him
    And makes me poor indeed.

    -Iago, Shakespeare's Othello, Act III. Scene III. Lines 180-186.

    Ignatius opens the door and Edmond moves in, casting his spell at the Maidens up on the gantry. They are too far apart to catch both in the pattern of shifting colours and so he has to content himself with just the one. The Maidens and the Physicians are caught off-guard by this sudden intrusion and are slow to react, and Edmond is in action again before they have time to register what has happened.

    OOC

    Surprise round
    Edmond casts hypnotic pattern on Maiden #4.
    Ignatius casts Sanctuary.

    Manachan
    Red

    Note also that this is Manachan's Harrow reading, so for the duration of the encounter he gains +10 temporary hit points and a +2 bonus to any Con-based roll (Fortitude saves and Concentration checks, basically).

    @Dr Simon, doesn't 10' spread mean that it affects origin square and 2 squares on the side? that is 5x5 square? In which case both #3 and #4 are just within the effect? Don't forget they get a save

    Here is relevant rule:
    You select the point of origin, and the spell spreads out a given distance in all directions

    If not, well, could you post a legend for numbers? which one are doctors and which are maidens?

    OOC: 1-4 are maidens (3 and 4 on the gantry), 7-8 are physicians. I make it that the gantry is about 20 ft. apart, with 3 and 4 essentially patrolling left to right on their own level, so it is impossible to get both with a 10 ft. radius spell. However, I'm happy to adjudicate a different target if you wish to change statement of intent.

    Maybe I'm infected with 4e? If I select the square in exact middle between 3 and 4 as the point of origin and count 10 feet (2 squares) up and down, I get both. Look at the grid, set 5x5 over it and you'll see. I don't mind if it's impossible, it's just that with current positions it looks feasible.

    Also, if 1-4 are maidens and 7-8 physicians, what are 5 and 6? Or is it just a typo?

    I wouldn't change the effect since below I cannot affect more then 1 maiden anyhow...unless 5 and 6 are also physicans in which case I can affect 5,6 and 7
