    [Adventure]: The Bane of the Black Dragon (DM: Dimsdale, Judge ??)

    Welcome everyone to the adventure:
    The Bane of the Black Dragon.

    Party Members:
    Sharpe Wellington: Half-Elf Bard: Lvl 3 (Luinnar) Leader
    Prime: Warforged Fighter: Lvl 5 (Someone) Defender
    Drew: Human Monk Lvl 5 (MetaVoid) Striker
    Gallen: Shifter Druid Lvl 5(Ozymandias79) Controller
    Zharne: Halfing Barbarian Lvl 5 (RedBeardJim) Striker
    Vermitrax: Human Mage: Lvl 4 (Voda Vosa) Controller

    The cleric leads the party through the city to its outskirts. Take this road south. It bends to to the east and at which point you will enter the forest. Be careful. It is in here that the latest goblin attacks have occurred. Find Lord Weinfurter and find the orb. Good luck.


    Rules

    1. Borrowed from H.M.Gimlord and Mal Malenkirk...and Johnmeier1
    2. I've also borrowed Voda Vosa's map tool idea. In combat, you are allow to move your own token when you perform a move action. If you damage an enemy, you can deduct the amount of hp you cause to the creature.


    Player Info: Include mini stat blocks in your posts. Mini-stat blocks allow you to keep track of your own healing surges, power usages, acquired items, etc... without having to ask the DM all the time. It's not the end of the world if you forget, but please be sure to include it when you are posting an action block. It also make it easier for me to check basic stats.

    Example mini-stats:
    ministats

    Triggers: Fox's Cunning Trigger - Immediate Reaction to the First Enemy that attacks me in melee
    Status: Bloodied
    Init: +5 Speed: 5 Perception:22 Insight: 20
    AC: 21 F/R/W:17/18/22
    HP: 30/61 Surges: 4/8 Surge Value: 15 AP: 1
    Languages: Allarian, Imperia, Draconic
    Str:8 Dex:14 Wis:14 Con:14 Int:10 Cha:22

    Powers:
    At Will - Jinx Shot, Cutting Words
    Encounter - Second Wind, Fox's Cunning, Twin Strike, Grappling Spirits, Hunter's Quarry, Majestic Word (0/2), Words of Friendship, Chord of Dissonance, Rhyme of the Blood-Seeking Blade, Virtue of Prescience
    Daily - Arrow of Ill Omen, Arrow of Warning, Bracers of Archery, Inevitable Shot, Songbow of Vanishment, Warding Arrow

    Full Character Sheet


    Passive checks: I will use Perception and Insight and put information in private sblocks for certain players. If you are not one of the intended characters, please do not read these spoilers. The character, however, is welcome to, in character, reveal the contents of the spoiler to the others in game, remember that talking is a free action (but keep in short)

    Combat:

    Players roll initiative individually, bad guys roll one initiative roll
    Players with higher init than bad guys go first then all the bad guys go
    Then all the players go. From this point, we alternate players vs bad guys
    Good guy turns happen in first post - first acted order.
    Illegal post-overs will be resolved in that round
    Legal post-overs stand even if each didn't know the other was posting (Please use Go Advanced or Preview Post to avoid this)

    DM Posts during combat will include:

    Status of all players, monsters, NPCs etc... indicating Name, Location, HP/MaxHP, State, Healing Surges Left, Action Points left (i.e.:: Arkavas I6 -1/41 Dying HS 0 AP 1)

    Map in the form of a grid, hopefully with coordinates

    Enemy Mini Stat Blocks including HP, AC, Fort, Refl, Will, Immunities, Resistance, and Basic Attack. If there are more specialized powers, I will post them at the time of their use. Trigger powers for bad guys. If you provoke an AoO or a listed power during your turn you can roll the result (it will make less work for the DM and give you a rapid response)

    Time: II will give players 48 hours to post, at the end of which time I reserve the right to RP the player's character on his behalf. I will use the most appropriate actions and At-Will powers only.

    Exceptions: If you will be out for a long time and unable to post, please let the party know and assign responsibility to either myself or another, willing player for RPing your character, or I can write in a scenario that takes you out of the picture until your return (The former is preferred).

    Treasure: Keep a wish list on your character sheet up to date with what you would like, and I’ll try to accommodate within reason. Items will be given relative to player level. Parcel Gold/Items will be evenly divided at the end.

    Die Rolling: Roll your dice on Invisible Castle. If invisible castle is down, you can also use the Enworld Dice roller (but please select the SMALLER results in your profile) In IC, highlight the die roll in your post and use the 'Insert Link' button to post a link to your die rolls.

    Out of Character Content: Post out of character content (i.e.: complaints, tactics, mechanics, etc...) in a spoiler with the letters 'OOC' in the title or the OOC tag.

    And you said I was rude, Sharpe mumbles. Taking a bard's voice away, you may of well of killed me on the spot. Very rude of you. You should be so ashamed of yourself that you turn yourself in for an alignment change.

    Now how much gold are we talking about again? he says.

    +++No worries. We'll bring you back that orb tied of hands and feet+++

    +++it's not the first time we rescue people from goblinoids+++


    Prime
    Prime Warforged Fighter 5
    Things to remember

    • Prime has damage reduction 1 against all damage

    • When an enemy marked by Prime makes an attack that doesn’t include him, he can make an Immediate Interrupt to make a Melee Basic Attack against him. If the attack connects, he can push the target up to 3 squares; since interrupts happen before the action that provoked them, pushing an enemy that attacks an ally beyond reach can potentially negate the attack altogether. Notice also that this attack isn’t an opportunity attack

    • Prime has a +2 bonus to hit with Opportunity attacks and if they hit they stop enemies if a move provoked the attack. They can resume moving using other actions.

    Trigguers:
    Shield Edge Block when the -4 to the enemy’s roll can negate the attack
    Guardian’s Counter when an ally within 2 squares is attacked, especially if the swap would negate the attack (it hit the ally’s defense, but is not high enough to hit Prime’s)

    Status:
    Initiative: +3, Passive perception: 21, Passive Insight: 16
    Defenses: AC: 23, Fort: 19, Ref: 16, Will: 16
    HP:58/58 THP: Bloodied: 29, Surge value:14, Surges/day: 13 Speed: 5 squares
    Languages: Common
    AP: 1

    Powers:
    Tide of Iron, Shield Feint, Pass Forward
    Hack and Hew, Shield Edge Block, Warforged Resolve, Guardian’s Counter, Second Wind
    Villain’s Menace, Rain of Steel

    The clerics face turn crimson red. I don't know which is worse, you or the dragon! You finish the task and then we'll talk gold, an amount that you'll be satisfied with I'm sure.

    Turning to Prime. You've dealt with goblins before? Good, then you know their tactics. That makes me breath easier. Good luck Prime. Looking towards the bard. You'll need it with young wormtongue on his dragon.

    Which dragon are you talking about again? Your dragon or my dragon? There do seems to be dragons popping out of the woodwork .

    Unless there is another dragon you are not telling us about. Sharpe says. It would not be the first time quest-givers have kept information from adventurers.

    I hope it is a blue dragon. Sharpe adds.

    Brother Navio open's his mouth to reply, then thinks better of it, mumbling to himself for the love of pete...I can't get a word in without him twisting it around He slumps his shoulders and shakes his head, then turns back to see who else followed to fulfill the quest.

    "Indeed we have had some experience with goblinoids, but only with goblins larger cousins. Even Sharpe did, though I'm sure he doesn't like to brag about it, being so modest and all."
