Map-like thing


r= robed guy
w= warforged
B= Ariel's bat thing
C= Cole
Gi= Gipp
[]=mast thing.

Please don't make fun of the map.

Feel free to change actions if you want. Still wanting on some people, then I'll post a round summary.

Try placing 'Code' '/code' when creating your map. Instead of using these ('), use these [].
For example your map would like this:



First Post
Thirian, AC: 20, 40/40 hp

Thirian moves toward the warforged, in front of the vulnurable Marius. "Rust and grow sluggish, my large metal behemoth." He waits for the creature to approach, flail at the ready.

[sblock=ooc]Init: 3. Hexblades curse on warforged as I approach. DC 17, -2 on everything if it succeeds. Ready attack on the warforged if it approaches me(or just attack if I can reach it). Oops rolled a d20 for damage instead of a d8 will reroll, and use an AP on the attack roll as well. Here is the first set of rolls. Init: 3, 21 to hit, 21 intimidate 6 damage, 2 on the AP for a total of 23 to hit. If the 23 hits oppose my intimidate of 21, if you fail you are shaken for the rest of the encounter.


First Post
Athelstan, Human Cleric, 36/36hp

Initiative: 1d20=7

Blood calling to blood, Athelstan reaches out across the tenuous etheric connection to shatter the blood vessels in the eyes of their sorcerous opponent then sends his crackling black blade against the warforged.

OOC: Cast Blindness (Fort Negates, DC 17) on the spellcaster. Move Action: Redirect Spiritual Weapon against the Warforged. Spiritual Wpn: Atk 1 vs Warforged (1d20+7=12) (I'm assuming that misses)

OOC2: As with Shayuri, the duration of my wpn is 1rd/level, I'm assuming it's still around as you listed her summoned bat on the battlefield, but I'd guess it has a round or two left at best.


First Post
1 round for the spells left.

Also, Blindness is a touch spell, so you provoke a movement AoO from the warforged and a con check to cast defensively (if you fail, it's butt-whoopin time)

Still waiting on DrZombie. If he doesn't post in 2 days, he's out.


First Post
Galathon, AC 22, HP 51, PP 6

Galathon casts Vigor (+20 HP, 4PP) on himself, and stays put.
OOC : 10' reach, combat reflexes (3 AoO), attack +7 dmg 4D6+10.
next round : cast enlarge, changing size to huge,then move closer to warforged and robed figure, ideally putting them both within reach, if needed choose robed figure to be within reach.
When huge : reach 15', AC 21, HP 51, PP 5. Combat reflexes granting 3AoO, attack +7 dmg 5D6+12 :D

It is? Darn, I thought it was a touch spell.  Sorry.

Round 1: The fight begins.

Caden yells at the robed guy, commanding him to take the acid bolt.  He does not.  She hides behind Thirian.

Vasintze summons his swarm.  (Note: Voda, you didn't specify movement, so I'm going to assume you moved forward.  Also, Summon Swarm attacks any living nearby creature, and you're a little too close to Marius and Galathon...I'll let that slide.  I posted the map after your action, after all.)  The swarm of spiders comes out of the woodwork of the [I]Ragnarok[/I] and attacks the hapless warforged, dealing him 4 damage.  It ignores the distraction and the poison.

A spider swarm seeks to surround and attack any living prey it encounters. A swarm deals 1d6 points of damage to any creature whose space it occupies at the end of its move.
Distraction (Ex)

Any living creature that begins its turn with a spider swarm in its space must succeed on a DC 11 Fortitude save or be nauseated for 1 round. The save DC is Constitution-based.
Poison (Ex)

Injury, Fortitude DC 11, initial and secondary damage 1d3 Str. The save DC is Constitution-based.

A spider swarm has a +4 racial bonus on Hide and Spot checks and a +8 racial bonus on Climb checks. It uses its Dexterity modifier instead of its Strength modifier for Climb checks. It can always choose to take 10 on a Climb check, even if rushed or threatened. 

Marius shoots these cool-looking magic missiles at the pair of assailants. The man takes 5 damage and a -4 strength penalty.  The warforged takes 10 damage and a -4 strength penalty.

Tetenet casts haste on Galathon, Vasintze, Cole, himself, and Gipp.  Gipp opens fire with his trusty crossbow on the warforged.  It hits, dealing 7 damage.  Ariel soars up into the sky.

The warforged charges Marius, using some kind of heavy blow, dealing him [url=]5d6+7=26[/url].  (I posted the link because this is pretty big, and I thought you'd like to know I'm not pulling numbers out of my ***.  I normally don't, to stop metagaming.)   

The robed guy fires two bolts of shadow at Galathon.  One misses.  The other hits for 62 damage and he must make a Fort save, plus a massive damage save.

Athelstan's flail misses the forged and dissipates, causing the forged to tell Athelstan his deity is weak.  The blindness also fails.

May fires her bolts.  They hit and deal 17 damage each.

Thirian hits, but does not successfully curse the 'forged.  His intimidation works, though.


He Who Lurks Beyond The Veil
Gipp AC 18, HP 25, Init 10.

"Oh! Not good" Gipp says as he sees the shadow bolts hitting Galathon. He starts loading his crossbow but as he sees the huge bat dropping the mage, he instead drops the bow, draws his kukri, turns invisible and moves closer to the warforged.

free action, drop the bow;
move action, draw kukri;
swift action, invisible;
move action, move to 15' or 20' (depending if there is someone already) east of the WF.
Two ki-points left after turning invisible[/sblock]

The half-ogre fals to the ground, unmoving.

Unless the first save was for half damage Galathon is dead anyway (-11 HP). If it was for half damage he's still dead, since the roll is too low for an action point to save his arse.

Fort save : 8
Massive damage save:11
rolls posted here
Must be the fastest death on the PbP boards :D

(...sheesh. That was a frack of a spell to be tossing around at our fact, this is starting to remind me of a certain incident with a lich in a random fight...)

"You scum! Taste this!" says Vasintze, and shoots an eldrich blast, enhanced with frithful blast and eldrich spear at the robed man, and moves a step back

OOC: sorry about the swarm =P

Caden casts Magic Missile, and directs all 3 bolts towards the Warforged.

Damage: 16

Marius, HP: 1/27, AC: 10

The warforged's blow nearly knocked Marius to the ground. It took nearly everything Marius had to stay up, but he managed to. He felt his blood drip to the ground, and was amazed at himself that he was still standing. Marius turned tail and fled from the imposing warforged. Marius went past Gipp and behind Caden, next to Athelstan and his Zombies.

Marius' Full Round Action: Withdraw[/sblock]


First Post
Cole Braddock

As the battle commences Cole waits for the enemy caster to begin weaving a new spell. And then with great speed, thanks to his comrade's spell, Cole draws out his bow and fires off two quick arrows at the enemy mage.

OOC: Attack: +10, +10; Damage: 1d8, 1d8
AC: 22, HP 29/29, Int: Whenever the mage goes.

May, elan psion; HP 24/24, AC 17; PP 25, of 39 (at end of round)

May gave a shrill yelp of dismay as Galathon crashed down on the deck. While her quicksilver emotional shifts made it difficult to tell whether she really liked any of her crewmates, the towering half-ogre had been one of the few 'people' aboard with any understanding of psionics, one of the few who May could actually talk to. And now he was gone...

May leaned forward, almost eagerly, and her lips twisted in a wolfish parody of a smile. One tiny hand reached out, pointing in the robed man's direction, and she began to channel her deadly psychic abilities. On some level, she knew that this was only making her a target, but she could hope that with so many other threats, her small size might make her seem less immediately threatening- other foes had made that mistake, after all.

OOC: [sblock] 5 foot step sideways, to bring her into line with the enemy "mage". Manifesting Energy Ray (frost), augmented to max level, and spending an Action Point on her ranged touch attack roll. Numbers are 5 PP spent, 5d6+5 damage possible (cold), ranged touch attack roll 10, almost certainly a clean miss ( )- take the first (and worst) roll, I guess, since I messed up the mechanics cue and ended with two rolls instead of one. Another Invisible Castle lesson for me, I guess- I get it down sooner or later. [/sblock]

He rolled a crit on his touch attack roll. And the fort was to avoid a slow effect. Once these guys die I'll post them in the RG. And, no, they are not 4 levels about your heads.

If it's any consolation, these guys will probably be dead soon anyway. the bat's attack is in...Magey is dead. So I'll let you know:

He's a shadowcaster. Level 6.
