Artemis turns around, "Teabags? Seriously, I don't think I want tea again after that imagery." Artemis turns back to the hobgoblins and readies his shield and sword.

[sblock=Battlefront Shift] Remember that I allow one ally to shift half their speed after initiative is rolled, before combat. This may allow a defender a better position or a leader/striker a less dangerous one. So someone use it! [/sblock]

Mikara gives Dante a loving smile, like an encouraging kindergarten teacher, "That was fine, sweetie, but bugbears don't drink tea."

Owen takes a few deep breaths as he meets the sneering hobgoblin's gaze with his own eyes. But he is able to calm somewhat as more and more of his fellow patrons join the crowd.

Now with allies at his back, he smiles disconcertingly at the closing horde.

OOC: I was still working on this character when everyone vigilantly ran out to save the bartender. I hope I can still join the fight? First time here, so if I crossed a line by doing this, please let me know.

Aedan didn't realise something was wrong when he saw the mob of hobgoblins outside the tavern: after all, it's not uncommon to encounter a group of hobgoblin thugs back in Bacarte.

It was when the big hobgoblin and his two cronies dragged the bartender to the street that Aedan realised it might be better to look for cover.

Aedan slowly walks back into the alley where he came from and reaches for his hand crossbows. "Looks like this won't be a fair fight", he mutters.

[sblock=EDIT:]Please disregard the 1d10 roll i just made, the system is new to me :p[/sblock]

Yishim exits the tavern to see a chaotic scene unfolding in the streets. An oppressive number of hobgoblins egging on their leader, and the poor bartender bearing the brunt of the beast's anger. The other bar patrons may take little notice of his unremarkable appearance, except to note the small orb he carries in his right hand, crackling with energy.

It's been too long since I've had a chance to tap the arcane. Let's hope my skills have not flagged with the flagons of ale.

As an aside, how does everyone get those neat little dice rolls in their posts? Right, there's a button. I failed my perception check the first time to notice it.[/sblock]

Actualy, these are hobgoblins. Bugbears the Dwarf becomes a Bugbear are brutish creatures, who like to bully smaller creatures. Hobgoblins now into a hobgoblin are not as strong, so grop up to hide there weakness. they also like to gang up on people, like now. He then becomes an Eladrin. Just thought I'd point that out.

OOC: All righty, it's progressing nicely. Found a workable (if drab) map of sufficient size and almost completed the opposition roster. It's varied an interesting, but I still need to settle on 900xp worth of enemy. On a normal sized party, that'd be a full encounter. :p

Enough for tonight, though, but I might be able to start earlier than expected; maybe tomorrow, certainly friday.

"Yes." Mikara replies, "But hobgoblins don't drink tea either, and even if they did, they wouldn't bother using bags." Mikara blushes, "I know what a bugbear looks like. You turned into one a while ago. I just thought were looking at the one standing next to the hobgoblin. I guess he was one of the spectators. He's gone now."[sblock=OOC to Fyrm]Might want to edit your post. It says "bugbears" ;).[/sblock]

Dante raises his eyebrows slightly and remarks dryly, "Bugbears or hobgoblins, our antagonists' race is a moot point. The tea was actually meant for my consumption."

OOC: Starting prep for the encounter. You can see the passive stat blocks below.

I am almost done but I just remembered that friday night I am playing at a charity poker tournament organized by my bank. I'll be home late. If not too tired, I hope to be able to kick this off.


OOC: We'll be using Invisiblecastle.

It is important to me that you log in invisible castle and always use the same character name. I had issues with this before and it's a pet peeve of mine. Using a character name allows me to review roll history, which I sometime do. I don't like discovering irregularities... Using no names automatically makes me wonder if you don't keep re-rolling until you like the result since I have no way to verify. I don't tolerate that very long.

For the same reason, always use the same character name. If I were to post under: ''Mal, Mall, Mal Malenkirk, Malenkirk etc.'' I am sure you would wonder what I am up to because the only things this accomplish is make roll history hard to verify. Well, I always roll under Mal Malenkirk so you can review my whole roll history. Check if you want; I don't fudge. I expect the same from everyone.

Also, put details in the roll. Minimally, include the power you are using and the target. That way you are not tempted to make a roll, see a natural 1 and decide this was an at-will instead of your daily after all. Or to roll a 17 against an AC of 18 and decide that in fact you were targeting the nearby goon who has an AC of 16. And even more importantly, your fellow players are not tempted to think you might have done that.

In resumé; Always use (the same) name, identify power and target.

Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch VS Thug in chief (1d20+89=100, 5d17+23=59)

This is simple and unequivocal.


OOC: Initiative of the bad guys will be 17 and there won't be any surprise round. Go ahead and roll initiative while I am putting the finishing touches. Anyone who hasn't rolled by the time I am ready, I will roll for them.

It should look like that or I am making you re-roll! ;)

OOC: Rolling under Character Name: Mikara Li Mesadh

Initiative (1d20+9=24)

To be transparent, I've looked back at my history and, in many cases while posting RP, placed a double 'ss' in Mikara's last name (e.g.: "Messadh"). So far, I've only done this blunder twice on IC (search and check me on this), and this was for the two rolls I made for the stupid stab at PvP just a few days ago.

I will be careful to use a single 's' from here out (my CS and CB info has a single s). For any confusion, I apologize.

Strange, is it just me or are followed hyperlinks showing up in a completely unreadable color when overlayed on an OOC box? I'm using Chrome, stable build.
