    i.g.
    If you're asking about Wil, he didn't take a second turn, he used an interrupt during Kruk's turn.

    This interrupt (if you've got insider): http://www.wizards.com/dndinsider/co...r.aspx?id=5683

    Interrupts can be confusing in PbP because you usually have to go back and do them after the fact.

    I will have limited internet access until May 10th, so I wanted to use this now. Hopefully I can post once per turn, but otherwise I have some good at will powers If you are within 5 squares feel free to use my interrupt.

    sorry John1. I thought it wouldn't work because he was not prone. But you are saying it doesn't matter. So in that case. Kruk will role some damage then.


    occ: Damage roll on first mate from brash strike attack: 1d10+8 = 16. Kruk grants CA to first mate until the beginning of Kruk's next turn.

    Computer Issues Resolved?
    Well, that was annoying. Maptool got into some kind of endless memory usage loop with my previous campaign file. So, to save time re-doing, and also to avoid the same issue, I used a screenshot of the map as the background. As a result, if combat strays off the Wind's Wil, it's going to look crappy. Sorry.

    Speaking of which, the other ship is much taller, so getting from the Will to it's deck will require some kind of grappling hook.
    Kruk
    I agree with your logic, and I gave you your action point back.


    Nodding to Wil, Porse said, "Looks like you've got this covered. We'll wait below deck. Come on boys!" Without a moment to spare, the Captain's mate jumped down into the cargo hold and scrambled out of sight. The two deck hands followed suit.

    The Pirate Captain smiled after Kane's attack. "A flying bugbear. Don't see that everyday. I'll be sure to hang your head in my quarters."

    Captain Smargat shifted around to flank Kane, whipping his chains around the barbarian's legs and yanking hard. The attack threw Kane to the deck and sent him sliding to the rail. The captain performed an unorthodox pirouette at the same time, moving closer to the port rail. "Take the dwarf, Matey," The captain ordered, then bellowing over his shoulder back at the pirate ship, "AND ON WITH THE REST OF YOU LIVERY DOGS!"

    The 1st Mate nodded to the captain's orders, but as he turned to face Kruk, blood poured from his nose. The pirate haphazardly wiped his face with his forearm, then lunged forward. The pirates arms were a blur to the others as he attacked, side stepped, attacked again, side stepped back, and attacked once more. But the small fencer's blades could not get past the dwarf's heavy defenses.

    On queue from the captain's orders, a pirate with a long spear swung from a rope onto the boat; The rope quickly retracted back by a pirate deck hand. A second pirate leaped from the deck of the higher pirate ship onto the rear of the Wind's Will.

    To cover their advance, the pirate archers let loose a rain of bolts across the deck, targeting Hergunna and Kruk. Two bolts struck Hergunna: one in the left shoulder and one in her check. Only one hit Kruk, but it found a gap in the dwarfs armor, hitting his neck.

    Notes on enemy interrupts

    Captain Smargat
    1. Any melee attack will trigger his Parrying chains ability. Go ahead and roll the attack for this.
    2. A missed melee or close attack will trigger his Whirling escape. I will decide if he uses these.

    1st Mate
    Any melee attack triggers the surprise counter, if it is charged. Go ahead of roll for this. Don't forget the bonuses to hit and damage for combat advantage.
    Dim Light

    Characters who have normal vision can’t see well in dim light: Creatures in the area have concealment. Characters who have low-light vision or darkvision see normally in dim light.

    So, all of the enemies will have -2 to hit everyone else.

    "Ha HAAAA" Kruk screams with a frenzied look on his face. He then turns to his left, and does a double take as he sees Kane. "Aye buggaboo. Where did you come from? What do ya say ya get up and help me finish this guy off!" referring to the first mate. With that, Kruk's axe hits the first mate in the chest with a sickening thud. On impact, flashes of lightning and a booming sound of thunder make the power of the blow even more severe. Kruk turns to the captain before swinging at the first mate again. "I don't know how long you've known this guy...but I think he's seen better days ha HAAAA!" As he laughs his axe strikes true again.

    So, does the first mate use his Surprise Counter against Kruk? I kind of need to know, in particular whether he uses the shift that comes with it.

    I'm thinking of running into the middle of them for Predator's Flurry, then wild shape/shift back, action point, and Thorn Spray. (Although I will be subject to an OA from the captain followed by his parrying chains, which could be very very bad.) But I need to know where the first mate is...

    These interrupts and reactions are a pain. But obviously they are a big part of the pirates' abilities.

    (Alternatively I could just move next to Kane for Thorn Spray... it would be a lot safer. From G19 I could target all enemies except the first mate... but again, need to know where the first mate is!)

    They can be a pain. It did trigger, but IC likes you guys this round (well, at least it likes Kruk. It might still hate Hergunna :P)

    If I did the math right, 1st mate is now at 29 HP.


    The 1st Mate immediately countered with a deadly thrust, but the attack glanced off Kruk's thick armor.

    "Hah! You fight well with axe and words, master dwarf. Perhaps you can take his place when we're done here," The Pirate Captain said, almost jovial. "You hear that matey? It's survival of the fittest on the open seas. Pick it up, or else! I've no use for weak men on my boat."

    Thanks, Tenchuu!

    I think I'm gonna go with plan B (Thorn Spray only).


    Hergunna-wolf lopes across the deck, heedless of the bolts which have struck her, swinging wide around the pirates. As she reaches Kane's side she shifts back to her human form, standing right in the face of the smirking pirate captain. "Survival of the fittest, huh?" she says sardonically, then throws her arms wide. A storm of wickedly barbed thorns zip through the fog, blanketing the captain and his entire crew. Only the quartermaster and one archer avoid the stinging missiles.

    Ooops, I was going to mention this but I forgot. Can Wil use his virtue of Prescience to negate the first hit on Hergunna? Assuming he was close enough which I think he was (5 squares).

    Carolina peeks over the cannon and tosses her dagger again at the pirate captain. Again, the dagger finds its mark, and then vanishes only to reappear in the rogue's waiting hand.

    The halfling inches forward, crouching between the two cannons in preparation for another strike.

    Speaking of disliking interrupts... :P

    I don't mind doing that retcon, but the power bonus to AC is +2, so the first attack still hits. The net benefit of the retcon would be +7 hp.

    Still want to do it?


    Duh. Had that reversed. So, net change is +11.

    I made the change in the status and mechanics blocks of the last post.
