Setis just stands there doing nothing.

Antony's electric arc singes H2
Electric Arc, dc 18 reflex save: 1d20+4 11

Both of Siobhan's arrows just miss the hyena

Jayesh repositions himself and takes up a fighting stance.

Janivel's first arrow strikes the larger hyena true. The other two arrows miss.

H1 1> moves, 2> moves to O19, and 3> attacks Siobhan
H2 1> moves, 2> moves to N20, and 3> attacks Setis
H3 1> moves, 2> moves to M20, and 3> attacks Janivel
Jaw attacks from 3 hyena against front line: 3#1d20+7 26 23 18 3#1d6+2 5 8 8

All three party members are bitten and pulled to the ground. (Knockdown Requirements: The monster’s last action was a success with an attack that lists Knockdown in its damage entry. Effect: The monster automatically knocks the target prone.)

H4 1> moves, 2> moves to L21, and 3> attacks Janivel
attack on Janivel: 1d20+9 20 1d10+5 10

The large hyena bites into the prone Janivel and drags her into the brush (half speed because of the brambles). (<A> Drag (attack, move) The hyena attempts a jaws Strike against a prone enemy. If it hits, in addition to dealing damage, the hyena Strides up to 10 feet, dragging the enemy along. Its movement doesn’t trigger reactions from the creature being dragged.)

Setis (Se) - 23 - AC:17 (15), 40/48 (prone)
Antony (AD) - 22 - AC:16, 32/32
Siobahn (Si) - 17 - AC:22 (20), 44/52 (prone)
Jayesh (JS) - 15 - AC:20, 60/60
Janivel (Ja) - 13 - AC:19 (17), 29/44 (prone)
3 Hyenas - 9 - AC:15
Hyenadon - 9 - AC:18

Prone: You’re lying on the ground. You take a –2 circumstance penalty to attack rolls but gain a +1 circumstance bonus to AC against ranged attacks. You’re flat-footed against melee attacks. The only move actions you can use while you’re prone are Crawl and Stand. Standing up ends the prone condition.
Flat-Footed: You’re unable to focus your full attention on defense. You take a –2 circumstance penalty to AC.

GM: I never moved Jayesh on the map apparently. Okay, so the attack by H3 would have missed and Jayesh would remain standing.

When H4 attacked and hit, Jayesh would be prone but not dragged. So Jayesh is still in L20, H4 is in L21. And Janivel is unharmed where the JS token is. I'll update for the next round.

Setis (Se) - 23 - AC:17 (15), 40/48 (prone)
Antony (AD) - 22 - AC:16, 32/32
Siobahn (Si) - 17 - AC:22 (20), 44/52 (prone)
Jayesh (JS) - 15 - AC:20 (18), 50/60 (prone)
Janivel (Ja) - 13 - AC:19, 44/44

Janivel drops her bow and runs, sliding through Anthony's legs and carefully maneuvering around to flank one of the hyenas with Siobahn. Then she flicks her wrist, drawing a dagger and striking at the hyena.

OOC: Free Action: Drop Bow
Action 1, 2: Moving N17, O17, P17, Q18, P19 (3 vertical = 15 ft, 1 diag = 5, 1 diag = 10, so 30 feet = 2 actions)
Action 3: Attack! It's flanked, hopefully. Thanks to Quick Draw, I can draw and attack in the same action. Janivel's attack, damage, and sneak attack on Hyena 1.: 1d20+8 11 1d4+4 6 1d6 2


"Well that will simply not do," says Antony in dismay as his companions are dragged off their feet. He slips one hand into a pouch at his waste while raising his other to point towards the big hyena with his fingers. Three glowing orbs spring into being at his fingertips, and with a short command they fly unerringly to strike the beast with force.

OOC: 1. Verbal Casting: Magic Missile, [roll0] .
2. Somatic Casting: Magic Missile, [roll1] .
3. Material Casting: Magic Missile, [roll2] .

Charwoman Gene

Seeing Janivel moving into position, Siobhan draws her melee weapon and attacks the southern hyena.
OOC: 0. Drop Bow.
1. Draw Shortsword.
2. Stand.
3. Strike: H1 [roll0] [roll1]


First Post
Setis picks herself up onto her feet again, shakes the indecision off, and transforms... In a matter of seconds, her body has distorted, twisted and reformed into a large mountain lion; a puma that utters an unearthly wail and lunges to bite at the creature before her that threatens her!

(Action 1: Stand. Action 2: Wildshape to great cat. Action 3: Bite attack [roll0] to hit, for [roll1] damage)

Jayesh gracefully rocks to one side swinging his legs underneath himself and stands in a smooth motion. He drops back into his fighting stance and unleashes a flurry of blows on the large hyena that just attacked him. The two quick slashing blows are aimed at the creatures flank. The monk follows up the quick strikes with a downward slash to the side of the hyenas head.

OOC: 1: Stand
2: Flurry of Blows on H4: 1d20+10 12 1d20+6 18; Flurry of blows damage: 2#1d8+1 3 8
3: Tiger claw strike on H4: 1d20+2 18; Tiger claw strike damage: 1d8+1 9

Setis stands up and speaks a word of power causing them to become a large cat. They then bite into the hyenadon who howls in pain and perhps some fear at the sudden appearance of an apex predator.

Antony also casts a spell. Missiles of force fly true into the hyenadon.

Siobahn regains her feet and draws her shortsword. She attack the hyena who had knocked her down, her attack striking true.

Jayesh stands and attempts two rapid strikes against the hyenadon. The first missed but the second one hits. He follows this up with a strike of the tiger which also hits.

Janivel drops her bow and rushes to a flanking position behind the hyena attacking Siobahn. But as she attacks with her sword, the hyena manages to sidestep her attack at the last second.

The hyena between Siobahn and Janivel steps into the clearing a delivers two vicious bites to Siobahn. With the three hyenas surrounding her, the hyena manages to make those attacks deadlier than expected. Siobahn is pulled to the ground by the final bite.
H1 1> steps to N18, 2> attacks Siobahn, 3> attacks Siobahn both hit (I forgot to give it the flanking bonus in the attack rolls below, so the 15 is a 17)
2 attacks on Siobahn: 1d20+7 22 1d6+1d4+2 10 1d20+2 15 1d6+1d4+2 7

The hyena focused on Setis attacks three times but cannot seem to gets its teeth into him.

The last hyena steps into the clearing and attacks the big cat with flanking. But neither attack hits.
H3 1> steps into L19, 2,3> Attacks the big cat

Antony pulls back on his reins and Bolt rears, striking at the hyena with his hooves. Meanwhile lightning crackles between his hands once again as an arc of electricity erupts between two of the hyenas.

OOC: 1. Command An Animal
1a. Strike! [roll][1d20+9[/roll] [roll0]
1b. Strike! [roll][1d20+4[/roll] [roll1]
2. Verbal Casting: Electric Arc.
3. Verbal Casting: Electric Arc, [roll2]. If H1 somehow survives it and the H4 will be targets, otherwise H2 and H4.


Disgruntled, but not ready to cede so easily, Janivel engages in some fancy footwork, and strikes again, with more speed and vigor this time.


Sorry I'm late! Family emergency has proven a difficult thing to manage.

  1. Moving: P20, P21, O23, M22
  2. Attack #1: Janivel's attack, damage, and sneak attack on Hyena 2.: 1d20+8 25 1d4+4 6 1d6 6
  3. Attack #2: Janivel's attack, damage, and sneak attack on Hyena 2 (second attack): 1d20+4 22 1d4+4 8 1d6 3

If the first one drops the hyena, she'll move to L22.


GM: Movement in the scrub is considered rough terrain, 2x movement cost. You can move P20, O21 and flank H2 with Setis instead of Siobahn.

And of course Family issues take precedence over this stuff.


First Post
Setis flattens her ears and snarls at the hyenas. Seeing someone move in behind one, she takes ruthless advantage of its distraction, attempting to latch on with her claws to get her teeth to the canine's throat!

Three attacks, 2 claws and a bite
Claw [roll0] attack for [roll1]
Claw [roll2] attack for [roll3]
Bite [roll4] attack for [roll5]

(ack, forgot flanking bonus! that may not make a difference in this case, but just in case it does...)

Siobhan stands up. She strikes twice at the hyena and hits it twice. The first one a vicious critical blow. The hyena dies.
Arcane energy swirls around Antony as electricity appears from nowhere and strikes two of the creatures. The larger creature takes the full brunt of the zap but the smaller nearly dodges out of the way. The hyenadon is barely holding on to life after that zap.
Jayesh lands the killing blow on the hyenadon. But he additional attacks against the hyena behind him flail to land.
Janivel moves in for a flank after overcoming the brambles. With a critical blow, the hyena is eviscerated with a single strike.
Setis was eyeing the flanked creature until it died. She turns to the last hyena (H3). Her first strike lands perfectly opening a horrid wound in the creature's chest. But her remaining strikes fail to hit.

The remaining hyena steps carefully away (k18), turns, and races away as fast as it can (to F12).

Setis (Se) - 23 - AC:22, 40/48 (big cat) temp hp: 10/10
Antony (AD) - 22 - AC:16, 32/32
Siobahn (Si) - 17 - AC:22, 27/52
Jayesh (JS) - 15 - AC:20, 27/60
Janivel (Ja) - 13 - AC:19, 44/44
H1 Hyena - 9 - AC:15, 0/21 (dead)
H2 Hyena - 9 - AC:15, 0/21 (dead)
H3 Hyena - 9 - AC:15, 3/21
H4 Hyenadon - 9 - AC:18, 0/47 (dead)

There were 3 critical hits this round. I can't believe they removed the withdraw action from the game.

(Shayuri, you forgot to reduce the 2nd and 3rd attacks by -4 and -5 respectively. Your iterative attacks are: claw +10, claw +6, bite +1. So your attacks were 29, 13, 3.
Kaodi and any spellcasters, when you post a spell with a saving throw, mention the saving throw type and your DC so I don't have to look it up.)

You are either out of combat or taking pot shots at the hyena, who has cover from the brambles versus ranged attacks.
