Then again, figuring out the exact volume each time could be a headache. I didn't take into account that the corridors are 10 feet high, so more than likely Wieland and the second cultist wouldn't have been caught in the blast. Of course, that assumes Real World physics and a fireball with actual pressure.

Hmm, something to think about. :unsure:

Battle map for Angus, Caerth and Quinn...

It lasts for another round I believe and then ends (on round 18)
Yes, I think it ends in round 18 just before Maur's turn, so those who act before the dwarf still gains it benefits. I think, I'm not sure.

Fireball fills the same AREA - I don't see the problem with it...unless I'm missing something.
See, that's how I've always thought it should work.

We shouldn't have to worry about volume; we just need to know how many squares it should fill and it fills that amount of squares on the battle map. Height shouldn't matter in the game. If anyone was flying above the 5 feet from the floor, they would still be affected, IMO. If it was higher than that, I'd probably allow that character a bonus on the save or say they only take half damage on a failed save and 1/4 on a successful save.

Regardless, I don't want to think about it that much. This a game not real life. As long as we all agree, it is fine how we judge it going forward. 20-ft radius spread spell would fill up to 48 squares in the corridor.

Doh!

I forgot to include the space of the open doorway into the brazier room. So, while Xander would be caught in his own blast and Timmins would be affected, Meridith, Wieland, and the two cultists wouldn't be affected be based on the number of squares. It would come close to Meridith but not quite reach her.

The black bear does get hit, however. so, poof, it's gone.

So, I'm going to edit my post and say that fireball didn't reach the other NPCs.

Quinn does not like fireballs cast on him, and seeing a bear run from a flash of flame light, and having seen the centaur head toward the goofy half-orc that ran pellmell down a dark hallway, he knows something that may need his personal attention up north.

I like fireball in all of its A D&D glory, including the lack of caps on max die. I am olllllld school, had my teeth cut on the game when I was in the Air Force in the early 80's.

I plan on living forever. Or die trying.
I would say anyone under 20' flight would be scorched, no save bonus unless they are at the edge of the blast. It is a sphere 20' radius, so it goes up 20' too.

Does Caerth know about the ghouls' paralysis abilities?

RAW, it's a Knowledge (religion) check to know about undead creatures, and the DC is 10 + the creature's hit dice (so 12, unless you adapted it from the base creature). But if you're untrained in that skill (which Caerth is), then it's only possible to get general information (DC 10 and lower).

So I guess this druid doesn't know about undead? :unsure:

Caerth can get the general information about ghouls. Personally, it would be generally known that if ghoul bites and claws you, it has a bad effect. He might not know it is paralysis, but he'd know it wouldn't just be regular wounds. Of course, I believe when the first set of ghouls attacked at the beginning of the combat first appears someone yelled out a warning about not letting them get a chance to bite. I don't think the character actually used the word paralysis, however.

Caerth would know enough to be cautious.

@JustinCase What language is Caerth speaking? Harqualian? Or did he speak to me in Centaurish?
More than likely he is speaking Harqualian (aka Common). Caerth knows Common, Orc, Druid, and Sylvan. Sylvan would be closest to the Centaur language. There would be some understanding on Angus's part, roughly 35%... maybe as high as 40%.

But yes, Caerth is probably speaking to Angus in Common.

BTW, I have physio later on today, so I'm going to try to get through another round of posts for this fight before having to get ready. I'll save my post for the Bluffside game for later on in the evening.

@Tellerian Hawke, the area that Angus is fighting in is considered cramped conditions for him. He's relatively okay where he's standing now, but once you move forward 5 ft., the walls will be in the way slightly. He can make a 5-ft. step and make a full attack, but I'd say he has a -2 circumstance penalty to his attacks but not to damage.

Note that the corridors in this area of the temple are less smooth in appearance.

I think so. I generally assume Common is used unless stated otherwise.
