That's it for me today. Heading of to bed!

Warms my heart to see people playing in Bluffside.
(BTW, the original idea for the city itself was mine, borne out of a failed attempt at writing a module). I was also one of the major contributing writers to it.

Ah well, I guess it's a Diplomacy check for Tuck. Diplomacy: 1D20+1 = [18]+1 = 19 (forgot to use the -10 penalty... so it's a 9)

Initiative Tuck: 1D20+4 = [16]+4 = 20

Mutt has the same initiative, right?

Yes, Tuck (and Mutt, if possible) will only deal nonlethal damage to the guards.

Cool.

Thanks for chiming in @der_kluge. This game originally started over on The Piazza, but moved over to E.N. World a while ago.

We'll use the same roll, but Mutt's initiative will be one less than Tuck's since the dog's Dex modifier is +3 instead of +4.

Okay, so Akos, Vinccenzo, Tuck, and then Mutt all act before Mani acts. The guard sergeant is Hostile while the other guards are only Unfriendly.

Another Reminder!
D&D Wiki said:
Nonlethal Damage with a Weapon that Deals Lethal Damage
You can use a melee weapon that deals lethal damage to deal nonlethal damage instead, but you take a –4 penalty on your attack roll.
@Tellerian Hawke, do your posted attacks take into account the -4 for doing nonlethal damage?

@JustinCase, Mutt can do nonlethal damage, but I want a Handle Animal check (DC 15) from Tuck to keep the big dog from doing lethal damage. This is mainly because Mani has taken a new form, which might fool Mutt. You could also have the dog make a Wisdom check to sense that Mani is still Mani. The big dog gets a +2 circumstance bonus to the roll due to its Scent ability.

Both are +1, but if Mutt gets a bonus then it's a Wisdom check!

Wisdom check Muttl: 1D20+3 = [17]+3 = 20

@Knightfall
Hey! Don't attack while we're trying diplomacy! - Tuck said he's talking and Timm that he waits hostilities before attacking...
What's the point otherwise? I could intimidate instead of being nice...

Okay, I understand what you're saying, but T.H. already posted an attack roll vs. Mani if he got pulled away from Vinccenzo, which he did.

Your Diplomacy check comes before the attacks on Mani, so you've influenced the guards to your side, so they won't be attacking you. However, Mani is trying to pull a fast one and Tim and the others want to knock him out so he doesn't flee into the fog or do something else.

Basically, the other guards are now Friendly while the sergeant is only Indifferent.

And, I rolled a 1 on Mani's Escape Artist check.

Giving you guys XP as if you defeated the guard in combat...

450 XP total = 90 XP each

No, I forgot about the -4, so that would be 9 and 19, rather than 13 and 23.

The 19 was still a hit.

FYI, I'm in the process of send my PC to get the keyboard fixed, so I'm updating my old PC as much as possible to use while the newer PC is gone being fixed. Surprisingly, my old PC was able to be upgraded to Windows 10. However, it is very slow, so once I'm forced to use it all the time, my posting will likey take more time.
