    Over on the other side of the battle, the assassin continues his quiet work, drawing the last breath from the last priest. Switching his armaments for a single blade, Dox mutters a brief arcane curse against the undead orb and moves behind for the kill. With practiced ease, the unremarkable man remarkably stabs the undead orb in its most vital point, and grabs it fast with his free hand. Striking now is advised.
    OOC: Sustain grab: With Min dmg + Death Attack, CP4 dead. Move, use free to swap garrote for rapier, Minor to curse, then spend AP to use Hidden Blade on Death Orb: Hit (barely), 45 hp dmg (by expending curse & Assassin's strike), it is grabbed (so it can't move), it grants CA, and takes a -2 on its escape check the first time. Use Low blow to also daze the beast.

    DM: Notes Please Ignore

    Although the monk can't hold on to the death orb, the assassin takes his place delivering a powerful blow that leaves the orb dazed and held in place. Prime takes a swing at it, but misses. The construct's moves at blinding speed however, hitting all surrounding foes. However, in doing so, the bone shard skeleton blasts outward a mixture of bone shards and necrotic filth which hits the fighter and the monk. Vermitrax curses at himself as his magic can't penetrate the defenses of the orb. The bard misses with his attack but manages to provide some aide to his allies. Kamotz hits the zombie. The orb demonstrates its true power with its counter attack. As soon as the assassin delivered his blow an eye locks onto him. Dox is lifted into the air moved, not backwards, but around the orb to within reach of the orbs allies, which in turn swing lustfully at the vulnerable target. Both miss with their attacks. With the assassin now out of the orb's way, another eye locks onto the dragon besides it. The dragon, and its rider, slide in an arc close to one of the fighters, which hits the dragon as it passes by. The zombie also hit with a minor wound. Ignoring the monk, one more eye locks onto the construct, delivering another wave of necrotic energy to the already vulnerable fighter. More skin on the fighter starts to decay, revealing a complex piece of machinery. Two more foes, a fighter and the bone shard attack the Prime, but miss. The zombie misses with an attack at the wolf, missing, but receiving a blast of radiant energy for choosing the wolf as the target. The other fighter, moves forward to the now exposed assassin and delivers a solid blow.

    Priest 1 through Priest 6: Summon Undead
    Note: This round the chance of summoning an undead creature is 4 out of 6. CP2 can't speak. CP3, though prone still continues to chant.
    A roll = 6 causes a summon failure. This causes 10 points damage to all priest involved in the ritual. Perhaps there is a way to lesson the chance of the priest summoning the foes.

    OOC: if Z1 attacked Whiggins instead of Kamotz, they took 6 radiant (before vulnerabilities)

    Kamotz takes a swing at the Zed if it is still alive.

    Sorry for the delay and lack of fluff text.

    GM: A couple things
    1. Drew is still on top of the orb, which means that the orb can't levitate upwards. @MetaVoid I'll let you roll an acrobatics check for future rounds

    2. @Someone Dox was hit with a force movement. He was slid past two foes, one of which was marked by Prime. The foe attacked Dox but missed. I believe this triggers an OA from Prime. I didn't roll Prime's OA attack. I wanted to make sure that the OA would be the correct ruling. If it is, go ahead and roll the attack. Let me know if it is not.

    3. Please check for fuzzy math. @MetaVoid , I have drew at 13 hp Temp HP 0. Let me know if that's what you have.

    4. It's the party's turn

    The skeleton commanded by Vermitrax follows behind the orb, and delivers a deep cut with its weapon. The thing somehow keeps avoiding the blows.

    OOC: Forced movement doesn't provoke AoO as far as I know. Minor: Move skeleton. Standard: Skeleton attacks, crappy fail again, even with CA. The orb is marked by the skeleton. Move: Move the Ice hand over the orb.

    OOC: As Voda Vosa said, forced movement doesn't provoke opportunity attacks; firing Ranged attack do, however

    Marked punishment are never opportunity attacks as far as I remember, in all classes that can mark they are immediate interrupts or immediate reactions. I could have done it against the orb as I had Marked it (remember to include the Marked penalty in your rolls) but as you only have 1 interrupt per turn, I had to use it on the Shield Edge Block exploit.

    As a second ray hits the clockwork construct, a patina of rust starts forming on him and a grinding sound comes from his battered mechanisms. Only a machine could withstand such punishment: a living man would be dead by now.

    Perceiving this as weakness, the other mausoleum guardians pile on him, one of them getting only a shield hit in the face for his eagerness, and the rest of the attacks just bouncing on his admantine armor (skin?) Turning to the orb, he hits it again with great force, crushing the orb into the ground.

    actions

    I'm assuming again the bad guys take their turns in the order it appears in the post.

    Opportunity attack: As the Orb fires against Dox, fails to hit.

    The orb fires against Prime and deals 21 damage (resistance 1) and 5 ongoing. 14 of those cancel Prime's temporary hit points (from Sharpe's power) and deal 7 real damage and 5 ongoing.

    Immediate interrupt: As CF1 hits Prime, Shield Edge Block. As an effect it gives it a -4 penalty to hit, which means the attack hits AC 27, 1 point lower than Prime's modified AC (it's now 28 thanks to the boots). The atacks hits for 12 damage. Prime gains 5 temporary hit points since he's hit with a melee attack.

    The bone shard's actions take place here, Prime takes 20 damage (resistance 1), 5 of these cancelling the newly acquired temp HPs damage (he's still vulnerable to necrotic) so 16 real and ongoing 5. Ongoing damage of the same type or untyped however don't stack, so it remains 5 ongoing necrotic.

    Start of turn: Take 4 (resistance 1) ongoing damage. 25 damage so far, Prime is almost Bloodied.

    Standard action: Crushing surge on orb, with bonuses from it being Dazed from Dox's actions last round and Warforge Tactics feat, and Marked penalty. It hits for 17 damage, the Orb is Marked and Prime gets 10 THP.
    Move Shift to current location, gaining boots' bonuses (marked in ministats)
    End of turn Failed save Vs Vulnerability, made save Vs ongoing damage.

    At the start of each adjacent enemy's turn, they take 11 damage from Rain of Steel. Damage values for this and Crushing surge include the bonus from Kamotz's Gavesite

    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.

    Drew was healed by Sharpe and slid 1 (since I didn't say anything before, let's leave it at that, he would have slid somewhere to flank) AND got 14THP from Sharpe, before that he had 5thp from Sharpes valor (such as it is) and after that 5 thp from orbs failed saving throw

    So I have:
    34/54 + 5thp Here
    hit for 9 (take 4 "real" damage)
    30/54
    fall for 2
    28/54
    gain 5thp from failed save of the orb
    get 14 thp and 21 hp from healing
    total: 49/54 and 3 temp hp

    Panting heavily, Kamotz signals Whiggins to charge and the pair dash beyond the reach of the assaulting zombie in their dust. The shifter points to the Mausoleum guardian and he is ringed in dark flames.

    Then Kamotz swings his flail in an arcing blow, leaving himself off balance but crushing the boneshard skeleton. The shards burst skywards, everyone recoils and ducks away, as the explosion of bones erupts! The Orb and Drew have no way of dodging the skeletal shrapnel and take the full force of the attack, necrotic energy washing over them.

    Kamotz shield and Whiggins plate mail take the bone brittle with ease and what passes by the pair, continues through the shadow skeleton; the shards come out the other side of the shadow skeleton intact. Even in the cacophony of the explosion, the skeleton's remains make pleasant tinkling noises against Prime's frame, as the sturdy metallic structure easily repels the onslaught. Dox moved as if he could see the future, both flattening to the ground and bouncing back up in the same instant fragments of necrotic energy passed through the space his body filled.

    Drew finds his footing, but pounds his stiffened fingers from awkard position into the orbs carapace without harming the beast.
