    My communities:

    Khemnos stands and move towards the sailors, weaving symbols with his hand. Suddenly a huge pile of treasure appears before the pirates. Khemnos' allies see the treasure flicker faintly and realize its illusory nature. Unfortunately, so do Bartleby and one of the pirates. Still, the hunter and the other pirate find themselves drawn to the innumerable coins, jewels, goblets, and other loot they see just sitting there for the taking, and won't be turning their attention to advance on the passengers just yet.

    Mechanics
    Free action - Stand up.

    Move action - Move to G12.

    Standard action - Visions of Avarice, centered on J22, burst 5.

    Visions of Avarice Pirate 1, Pirate 2, Dire Beast Hunter, Bartleby (1d20+13=18, 1d20+13=23, 1d20+13=26, 1d20+13=19)

    Hits Will 18 against Pirate 1, hits Will 23 against Pirate 2, hits Will 26 against Dire Beast Hunter, and hits Will 19 against Bartleby. On a hit, each enemy is pulled up to 4 squares, and if they end adjacent to the origin square, they are immobilized (save ends). On hits, pull Pirate 1 to I22, Pirate 2 to I23, Dire Beast Hunter to K23, and Bartleby to J23.

    Kane rises to his feet quickly, his axes drawn and ready to be brought to bear on the crew members. He is slower to react than his allies, but on seeing the effect of the new arcanist's spell, Kane smiles. "Ha! You good magicman, you bring lots of friends for Kane to play with" the bugbear laughs.

    He bounds forth, the newly acquired boots spurring the barbarian forward despite the ship's angle and Kane slams hard into the duo that are entranced by the illusory treasures. Both of his axes slash at the crew members and draw blood.

    GM: Effect on Shifting
    When you are moving "uphill", you need shift 2 to be able to shift, just like shifting in to DT.
    When you are moving downhill, there is no effect on shifting. Likewise, there is no change of effect if you are shifting to the side of the ship, without any diagonal movement (i.e., on the map, you stay in the same column).

    OOC: Hurray, Charina's wiki is roughly up to date (at last). Needs to link for the DM Credit and some minor thing but I think the crunch is ok, including wealth, which was a major headache because I had been negligent.


    Charina shoots with deadly accuracy a bolt that flies right under Kane's armpit to hit the pirate in the chest. Probably shaved the bugbear a bit, too. Not a problem, He needs it.

    She then disappears out of sight as the drows are wont to do.

    OOC: Wait, I just read that the one that Kane attacked had only 3 hp left?

    If that's the case, I'd still shoot him to take him out but I'll only use sly flourish (minimum of 17 damage) instead of blowing an encounter power!

  • #58
    OOC: @Mal Malenkirk
    Are you targeting Pirate 2 (-20 damage), Pirate 1 (undamaged) or the Dire beast Hunter (3 health left)?
    Nevermind. I need to get into a habit of refreshing before I post.

    I put you in K16 instead. That stuff in the middle of the deck looks like a hole down into the cargo hold of the ship (which would provide no cover). Lets just call it flat, to make things simpler.

    WIP


    The Pirate unmoved by the treasure moved up the center of the ship, hoping down on the deck and approaching Wil.

    The second pirate was ready to fight back, but not willing to just leave the treasure. Standing his ground against Kane, he swung the cutlass wildly, and it was easily deflected.

    "Under the sea, men can't scream, but they can dance like a ballerina," Bartleby Haff proclaimed. "Would you care to see my seaman's shanty, master dwarf?" The Haff lashed out at Kruk with his chain, but the weapon rebounded off his armor. And, so far, the man's inane rambling had no ill effect.

    A third Pirate climbed onto the deck, close to Kane.

    Motion in the Ocean

    Active effects:
    As the boat crests/troughs the swells, the angle of the ship's deck will change dramatically between forward and Aft. Athletics or Acrobatics check, DC 22:
    On a success you are not moved. On a fail, you are pushed three squares in the direction of the downward slope (forward or aft). If a push would move you to a square off deck, push over deck rules (below) apply. If you roll a nat 1, you fall prone.

    I will roll these. The first round is a freebie. The NPCs are considered to have +15 for this skill check.

    Passive effects:
    Moving to the upper side/from where the water is coming, takes X2 squares of movement. Going to the lower part of in favor of the swell, lets you move an additional square for each square you move in that direction. I will include the below stat block in my posts, which will hopefully make this effect quite clear.

    Check Map Block for Current Deck Direction
    Push over deck
    The ship's railing prevents normal push/pull/shift falling rules. So, if you use a forced movement power which would normal be able to move an enemy off the ship, the enemy still rolls a save; If the save passes, movement ends at the deck railing with no other effects. If the save fails, movement ends at the deck railing and the character goes prone.

    To actually get someone over the edge, you need to:
    1. Grab (standard) sorry, the bad guy gets a chance to escape
    2. Sustain grab (minor). Lift and Move grabbed enemy (Standard) with a STR vs. Fort. to force the enemy over the rail. The player's STRx20 must be more than the enemy's weight, which I think might preclude some of the smaller characters from attempting this.
    Cover/Concealment
    Most of the junk on the ship's deck is not that tall. Since Carolina is small, she can crouch behind the cannons and the boats to get total concealment. Everyone else at medium size would need to go prone behind the objects to achieve the same effect. Otherwise, you can get the -2 variety only.
    Dim Light

    Characters who have normal vision canít see well in dim light: Creatures in the area have concealment (-2 to hit with melee / ranged). Characters who have low-light vision or darkvision see normally in dim light.

    I have adjusted the enemy stat blocks to include any attack penalties as part of their stated stats.

    Adventure Summary

    Motives
    Everyone: Report back to Byron & decide what to do with the information about the brotherhood.
    LB3 Summary

    Summary of Events
    1. Bested Pirates en route to Allaria. Traveled on the ship Wind's Will captained by Captain Levenbrech, and mated by Porse and Trig.
    2. Arrived in the port, to find it besieged by Lizards from the unending mire. Defeated lizards and met/teamed up with Charina.
    3. Journeyed to Geardagas and asked the locals for information with mixed results (link to the leads gathered).
    4. Went to the temple of Netari, where the new priest, Father Niris, has been tending to the ill (apparently quite poorly). He led the players into the catacombs, where his zombie minions ambushed. The priest, over confident, rambled on about Hellview (background reference for players).
    5. Dealing a mortal blow to the Priest, he says Master De Luccia (First time they have heard the name) cannot be stopped, and he stated that Greggor "will be... among the first... at Hellview." The priest laid dying on the floor with his fallen minions.
    6. As they approach Hellview, they encounter the ghost of Sir Alistair Glasston, who begged them to enter the cave and retrieve his lost battleaxe.
    7. They entered Hellview, and came across a portal, as well as some guards/workers. It seems they were using zombies to dig a new path near the portal...
    8. They step through the portal into a bizarre world. A demon statue looms ahead, with a tall gate behind. The bodies of fallen adventurers, as well as a dead demon, lay about the floor. Wil Triggered the Demon statue trap, alerting the nearby demon's.
    9. After a long battle, they slew all of the demons who had come through the hell gate, and they found Sir Alistair Glasston's lost battleaxe. But Greggor was still missing, and there is the question of why the demons were digging.
    10. Hergunna departed the group to alert the local militia, while the others pressed ahead North, trying to find the source of the demon-aligned miners, as well as the lost silver.
    11. They came upon a wall blocking the road to the mine. Mounted knight Brother Arleas leads a band of outlaws and zombies to defend the mine entrance. After slaying the Knight and half his men, the remaining wizards and archers closed the gate. The battle continued until only the fat temporal wizard, Alaria, remained alive. She pleaded for her life to be spared.
    12. Alaria identified the men who hired her as being part of the Brotherhood.
    13. They entered the mine and found Greggor with some other miners. Greggor shows them a path recently carved from the mine into the Hellview portal tunnels. They are using the tunnel to subvert the protection which bars them from exiting the portal into Alaria.
    14. By the portal, they opened up the wall to reveal a hidden demon temple. Inside, Master De Luccia brings the demon Amendfohl (the same demon that Sir Alistair Glasston fought during the fall of Allaria) back to life. De Luccia Declared, "The time for the Brotherhood of the Bright Eon is once again at hand." The players slay the demon, and De Luccia offers them a deal where everyone just walks away. The players balk, and attack. DeLuccia drops Kruk and threatens to kill the dwarf if they don't leave, but the players press the attack, and kill the brotherhood master as well.
    Summary of Events
    1. The adventurers return to Geardagas. They meet with Count Saga, who puts them on a quest to Alert Daunton to the Brotherhood threat and request aid for Allaria. They are joined by the mage Khemnos.
    2. They board the Wind's Will to return back to Daunton, but things seem off. The Captain and his second mate are missing; First Mate Porse seems to be running the ship, and he is his usual unfriendly self. Over dinner, they question Porse, and get a bad feeling about the Sailor's intentions.
    3. The Sailors made a move against the adventurers at night. The sea is rough.

    LB3 Summary

    Summary of Events
    1. Bested Pirates en route to Allaria. Traveled on the ship Wind's Will captained by Captain Levenbrech, and mated by Porse and Trig.
    2. Arrived in the port, to find it besieged by Lizards from the unending mire. Defeated lizards and met/teamed up with Charina.
    3. Journeyed to Geardagas and asked the locals for information with mixed results (link to the leads gathered).
    4. Went to the temple of Netari, where the new priest, Father Niris, has been tending to the ill (apparently quite poorly). He led the players into the catacombs, where his zombie minions ambushed. The priest, over confident, rambled on about Hellview (background reference for players).
    5. Dealing a mortal blow to the Priest, he says Master De Luccia (First time they have heard the name) cannot be stopped, and he stated that Greggor "will be... among the first... at Hellview." The priest laid dying on the floor with his fallen minions.
    6. As they approach Hellview, they encounter the ghost of Sir Alistair Glasston, who begged them to enter the cave and retrieve his lost battleaxe.
    7. They entered Hellview, and came across a portal, as well as some guards/workers. It seems they were using zombies to dig a new path near the portal...
    8. They step through the portal into a bizarre world. A demon statue looms ahead, with a tall gate behind. The bodies of fallen adventurers, as well as a dead demon, lay about the floor. Wil Triggered the Demon statue trap, alerting the nearby demon's.
    9. After a long battle, they slew all of the demons who had come through the hell gate, and they found Sir Alistair Glasston's lost battleaxe. But Greggor was still missing, and there is the question of why the demons were digging.
    10. Hergunna departed the group to alert the local militia, while the others pressed ahead North, trying to find the source of the demon-aligned miners, as well as the lost silver.
    11. They came upon a wall blocking the road to the mine. Mounted knight Brother Arleas leads a band of outlaws and zombies to defend the mine entrance. After slaying the Knight and half his men, the remaining wizards and archers closed the gate. The battle continued until only the fat temporal wizard, Alaria, remained alive. She pleaded for her life to be spared.
    12. Alaria identified the men who hired her as being part of the Brotherhood.
    13. They entered the mine and found Greggor with some other miners. Greggor shows them a path recently carved from the mine into the Hellview portal tunnels. They are using the tunnel to subvert the protection which bars them from exiting the portal into Alaria.
    14. By the portal, they opened up the wall to reveal a hidden demon temple. Inside, Master De Luccia brings the demon Amendfohl (the same demon that Sir Alistair Glasston fought during the fall of Allaria) back to life. De Luccia Declared, "The time for the Brotherhood of the Bright Eon is once again at hand." The players slay the demon, and De Luccia offers them a deal where everyone just walks away. The players balk, and attack. DeLuccia drops Kruk and threatens to kill the dwarf if they don't leave, but the players press the attack, and kill the brotherhood master as well.
    Summary of Events
    1. The adventurers return to Geardagas. They meet with Count Saga, who puts them on a quest to Alert Daunton to the Brotherhood threat and request aid for Allaria. They are joined by the mage Khemnos.
    2. They board the Wind's Will to return back to Daunton, but things seem off. The Captain and his second mate are missing; First Mate Porse seems to be running the ship, and he is his usual unfriendly self. Over dinner, they question Porse, and get a bad feeling about the Sailor's intentions.
    3. The Sailors made a move against the adventurers at night. The sea is rough.

    OOC: John - does this 11 work against all enemies or just against the now-dead hunter? If everyone, Kane will use it now.
