    ° Ignore Voda Vosa
    Vermitrax sprints to the far end of the featureless room, his spellbook floating behind him. As he reaches his destination, he eyes the skeletons around him, and begins chanting in the undulating language of the Empire. As part of the final somatic component of the spell, the wizard takes his staff and smashes the tip in the ground, releasing a burst of force, that pushes the archer and the tomb warrior away from him, tearing through their bones. The minion seems unaffected.

    Repelling sphere, burst 3: hit tomb warrior and archer for 12

    OOC: Summery, everyone gets 14 THP (besides Sharpe), Prime gets surge +5+6 hp, can be slide 1 as a free action.

    Sharpe flails his sword about randomly trying to defend the dragon. Perhaps it is hit innate arcane powers, or just dumb luck, as he almost chops off his appendages off in the process, almost being the key word.

    See who is afraid of the monsters? he calls out. Not me? No! Yes sir not me!

    ° Ignore Someone
    Plinka, plink pleenk plonk... the newcoming four armed skeleton's flawless attacks bounce innefectively on Prime's armored frame. It's impossible, but you almost can see a calcified tear rolling down it's bony cheek. Prime ignores it and shoves the skeleton aside as he continues going after his main objective, the larger bone construct. He hits it so hard that it flies ten feet directly again into the illusion Vlastodes made. It's still effective, and the deluded golem makes hilarious motions as he clings to the illusory edges of the fake pit.

    actions

    Immediate interrupt: Endure pain daily utility as Prime is hit by the first attack. This gives him damage resistance 10 until the end on his next turn (not cummulative with armor property) so he takes 4 damage total from all the critting. Since he had 5 THP Prime still has 1 THP when the round starts, so @Luinnar, healing won't be neccesary (feel free to alter your post)
    Move action: Move to D11, provoking OAs from tomb guardian (two of them, according to the statblock) and skeleton warrior 14. I didn't bother to roll OA from the warrior as he can't damage Prime (Endure Pain still in effect) and the tomb guardian doesn't hit.
    Standard:Bull's Strength on Bone Golem. Roll includes bonuses from Dazed (if we're following Malenkirk's convention you benefit from one round long conditions once no matter how convoluted the order of posting becomes; in practice, it isn't important for this roll as Prime would have hit anyway). It deals 11 damage and pushes the golem two squares to current position. Since the golem has entered Vermitrax's zone again, it falls prone. Prime gains 5 THP, but they're not cummulative with those granted by Sharpe's power.
    Minor: Boots of the fencing master encounter power, Prime shifts to current position and gains bonuses to AC and Reflex.

    When rolling attacks against Prime, remember he has cover until the end of the encounter

    @MetaVoid : I'd prefer if you don't use Drunken Monkey this turn to trigger combat challenge, as I'd like to have my immediate interrupt free for defense. Also, if you're going to end your turn next to the golem, try to do so at least at row 9 (at least meaning row 10 is ok but 8 not) if you don't mind

    A guide to Prime's out of turn actions

    With all the immediate action Prime is gathering, he’s becoming a complex character to have in pbp. In order to reduce the amount of retconning, do not hesitate to use one of these actions at the first chance it could be reasonably useful, in the following order of priority. Notice that many though not all are immediate actions and are mutually exclusive (you can take only one immediate action per round):

    • Blurred Step (Battlemind feature, at will). Prime can, once per turn as a free action, shift 1 when an adjacent marked enemy shifts. Use this along with Combat Challenge for maximum benefit.
    • Combat Challenge (fighter feature, at will, immediate interrupt), a MBA he can make against a Marked enemy who shifts or makes an attack that doesn’t include Prime. Notice that he can push enemies up to 3 squares with this attack: since combat challenge is an interrupt, this has the potential to completely negate an attack if it pushes the enemy beyond melee range. Otherwise use the push to disrupt the enemy strategy as much as possible.
    • Guardian’s counter (Encounter power, immediate interrupt), If an ally within 2 is being hit but the attack wouldn’t hit Prime or the damage to the ally would be severe. Prime exchanges positions with an ally within 2 squares, becomes the target of the attack and can retaliate with a MBA.
    • Fully augmented Lightning Rush (using 2 power points, immediate interrupt): Same case as guardian's counter, when guardian's Counter can't be used. Prime can move 5 squares, becomes the target of the attack, and deals a +13 VS AC, 2d10+8 damage attack.
    • Shield Edge Block (Encounter power, immediate interrupt), when he’s hit by a melee or close attack and a -4 penalty to hit would make the attack fail.
    • Unbreakable (Encounter power, immediate interrupt), if hit by an attack that can't be negated by Shield Edge Block that deals 11 or more damage (he’d negate 10 with the power -which isn’t described as damage reduction-, then 1 from armor property)

    If you roll any attack granted by any of these actions, don't forget Prime's Warforged Tactics feat: +1 to hit enemies adjacent to at least one ally.

    ° Ignore MetaVoid
    Drew crouches, tensing. As he unleashes pent up energy with mighty shout, he soars into the air, flips and strikes tomb guardian with both legs. Fast as only skeleton can be, guardian crosses his scimitars and pushes back. The monk flies back where he came from. He hits the ground rolling and gets up behind the golem.

    Draconic

    "The dragon ranges across his domain."

    @Someone, no problem, yell when you want me to attack with Drunken Monkey.

    Actions

    Minor: Fallen Needle movement: shift 1 to F6
    Standard: Fallen Needle vs Ref (TG); damage (1d20+11=21, 1d10+7+1=15) - miss
    Move: move to B6, going over row 5 to avoid OAs

    OOC: As a general rule, if you post before me. That way I'll recover the immediate action I need for 75% of my powers when it's my turn. Also, if you use the power when the golem is bloodied and it hits itself with it's basic attack, it'll be Dazed and won't be able to use the berserk attack immediate reaction

    DM Notes Please Ignore


    Two more foes are slain by the heroes, an archer and an skeleton warrior. The bone golem stands then pummels Drew and missing prime. Drew feels dazed by the blow. Three skeletons and the one with four arms converge on the bard and his dragon. The most of the dragons damage was absorbed by the bard's magic. The bard takes a minor wound from one of the scimitar attacks. Another notch collapses, but not before three more foes exit from it, this time a mage and two other warriors. Two immediately attack Zharne, one scoring a hit, but the damage was absorbed by the bard's magic. The other was not able to attack as it was blow to bits by the mage in its attempt to strike Vermitrax and Zharne, both of whom did not feel the affects of the spell.


    Mechanics

    Drew: Miss
    Prime: Reduce total damage from last round to 4 hp, hit bone golem for 11
