[ooc] He Chained Their Minds

[MENTION=6684473]CrimsonFlameWielder[/MENTION]: Could I request that you post the link to the map when you post the monsters' turns? Makes it a lot easier to get to it than having to go back and find the post at the start of combat with the link :).

I just realized that blistering flourish/desert winds flurry of blows isn't nearly as good of a combo when you're using skipping stone flurry. I'm assuming SSF changes your flurry to be a ranged attack since you're using a sling to hit a target further away, which results in not getting the benefit from blistering flourish (which applies to melee attacks). That kills half of the reason I built the character the way I did :(

Couple things, [MENTION=6684473]CrimsonFlameWielder[/MENTION]

I had 39 hp and 6 temp hp at the beginning of the round. I took 5 damage, then 19 damage, which reduced me to 21 hp, bloodying me and granting me 5 temp hp via Half-Orc Resilience. I took 17 more damage, leaving me with 9 hp. My calculation disagrees with yours so I thought I'd show my work and see if we can figure out what the discrepancy is.

Also I didn't use Swift Charge, so Ignatz was still at P12. That might require reworking last round a little bit?
 

[MENTION=6676620]VanderLegion[/MENTION]: No problem! will post link to map on monsters turn from now on. Also... it never says anywhere that SSF changes your flurry into a ranged attack. As such...I would treat it like the few effects that allow one to attack in melee from more than one square away. So as long as you're in my games, you can treat SSF as a melee attack, thus gaining the benefit of BF bonus damage.
[MENTION=69684]WEContact[/MENTION]: hrmm... oh... I know what it was! You forgot to take the 3 damage from starting your turn next to the swarm, which immediately dropped your HP to 36 BEFORE you dropped the dwarf and gained the temp hit points. So at that point you had 36 and 6 temp. Then you took 5, dropping it to 36 and 1 temp. Next you took 19 damage, dropping you to 18. Now, at this point you SHOULD have gained the temp hp... but I completely forgot that you had that racial feature. You then took another 17, which took you down to 1 hp. Now, with the addition of the 5 temp hp, you would be a 6. As for reworking the last round... I suppose I could... may take me a while to retrace things back to where they were. When I was writting my post I still saw that you had the swift charge in there, so I think I assumed you used it...

If you really want me to rework the round I will, else we can just push on. I'll leave that up to you and the group, since it could effect their turns.

Ah, gotcha- I didn't count that 3 damage because I thought that Joy had moved the swarms away. Okay, so Ignatz is at 6 hp.

I know it's a hassle, and I hate to ask... but I would like you to rework the round. Strategically it's a big deal, and I did say in this thread that I had decided not to Swift Charge. My computer keeps crashing and I've been working a lot, so I wasn't able to edit my post promptly. Sorry about that.

Sweet! I actually thought of that later, but wasn't sure if that would be the case or not, I definitely don't mind that ruling :).

I have no problem redoing the turn.

Looks like [MENTION=211]Phoenix8008[/MENTION] doesn't read the OOC thread. :) Good work on the healing though- if Ignatz is in P12 he's still in range of all that healing I think.

Oh heck.

Well, if Ignatz was at P12, then that is still within 5 squares and therefore within range for both the inspiring word and the healing from Stand the Fallen.
 


No problem at all! The issue was mainly caused by my forgetfulness that you DIDN'T want to use Swift Charge, coupled with the Swarms having been moved by the push, when they can't be pushed, lol.

I got it all figured out now though and posted to the main thread with the retcon.

I'll go ahead and keep my turn the same. Does my 20 hit RC2s reflex? I'm assuming so, but wanna make sure, since I need to move myself on the map if it does. I'll go edit the post for the 4 extra damage he should take from the flurry if I hit.

Edit: Okay, I lied, I forgot I moved into melee so I could get the bonus damage on flurry. With the ruling that it works with SSF, I'll keep 1 square back, so I modified my post with the new position (and new shift if I hit) and moved myself on the map.

Hmmm... So do I have the option of keeping my posted actions and just changing the target of the Inspiring word to Kama'zer herself? That way at least my crit would still do 15 damage to the swarm and nearly kill it. Or I can change everything around and lose my rolled crit... Deciding.

Having played with CFW before, I can say confidently that he or she would be fine with you keeping the same rolls and targeting yourself with your Word. Changing your attack target would probably merit a reroll. I'd keep the attack as is, personally.
 

[MENTION=69684]WEContact[/MENTION]: Ooooh, have I switched it up on male/female characters enough that you can't tell if I'm male or female? Interesting.... well... you'll probably be disappointed to know that I'm a 31 year old male... sorry if that ruined any mental picture you had of me =P
[MENTION=211]Phoenix8008[/MENTION]: WEContact has me just right. Feel free to keep the same rolls, but target yourself with your Word. I'd hate to take away someone's crit, as few of those as we get... so feel free to use Word on Kama'zer, and still crit on the swarm (though I must say my players have been getting rather lucky against my critters this battle....) for the 15 odd damage (or whatever it happens to be).

Naw, I just don't like to assume. I'm male too but I've played my share of female characters. I wish I could bring Caim back to L4W at some point in the future.

Caim only went adventuring once here in L4W. She was fun, but then Seekers of the Moonrise Vale came out in Dragon and I had to test that material, so I swapped her out for Haaku and brought in Logan Chambers.

[MENTION=6684473]CrimsonFlameWielder[/MENTION] Before I take my turn I'd like to know whether or not Kane successfully pushed TC out of the darkness, I think. :devil:
