5E (OOC) Rise of the Dracolich (Full)

Unfortunately, it's an Action. They kinda suck after you start getting up in levels, and the really, really expensive ones aren't very good either, unless you want their rider effects. Can Sesto still do a big Everyone Heal? They all need it.

Edit (After reading your post): Great minds think alike!

I've been slowly working on this round everyone. It really takes a long time, I'm afraid.

So speaking of being slow... Lorenn hasn't gone yet (it was just an attack of opportunity). So is the following possible: I know no one is in melee with the dragon, and the fog is gone so there is no sneaking either. Is it possible for him to use his familiar to do the help action to enable an attack of opportunity? I know it's feasible in theory, but I don't know if the details are there (range, positioning etc)

I'm not sure what you mean. The Help action and an Attack of Opportunity? In what way? Also his familiar is dead.

To be clear, the Lair Action's Heavy Obscurement Freezing Fog is gone, but the overall misty-and-dark of the environment is still true. Visibility still sucks in general.

Three points/clarifications/questions:

1: The attack of opportunity: what I was trying to say is that in post 981 and 982 are attacks of opportunities when the dragon moved. Kalorn then took his action in post 987, but Lorenn has yet to take his action.

2: So both familiars have been killed? that makes my question about the familiar helping to grant a sneak attack moot.

3: Is stealth possible? (ie can lorenn creep in like last time?)
 

1) Oh I know Lorenn hasn't acted. You actually said the familiar could grant you an AoO. I get now that you meant Sneak Attack.

2) Which would have worked if they weren't long dead.

3) I can't see any way. Dragons have blind sight so any way you could get up to attack him in melee he'd see you coming. I let it happen before because it was too awesome not to. (Also there was the ice to hide behind and a lot of things going on. I figured it was close enough to working.)

our archer is fighting a troll with a sword instead of shooting at dragons? Jebus...

I'm working on a Lorenn post. Won't be too flashy - can't sneak attack :/

edit: a swing and a miss!

Alhana is an accomplished sword fighter too! 🤺
And with a troll at her back, she is not very comfortable looking the other way.

Better than shooting with disadvantage against the dragon.
 

Just to let everyone know... I am trying to get this round rolled, but I've been struggling to get it done. (Actually, I lost a whole post somehow and I haven't had time to recreate it). Hopefully soon!
 


It's okay, take your time and get to it when you can. I know you've got other problems at the moment.

I have a few, but time is not one of them. Finding motivation to do hard work is, though. That I don't have!

(Thanks for the words of support, though.)

As an aside, I regret not doing the last few rounds of the East Lair. There's a thing or two that I think might be significant about its outcome (in particular, @Ancalagon might like the satisfaction of having Blurcho kill Arrufel. Ah well. We can jump back in next round with them, I'll just see what happens if everyone did average damage to each other each round to save time. I think Sargloth might not make it, but whatever.

When this whole semi-quarantine started, I thought "well I will have more time to work on gaming"... what I didn't anticipate how the anxiety of this pandemic would really put a damper on my interest in gaming. My blog usually has 2-5 entries per month, I wrote 1 entry in 6 weeks...

Yeah, I expected to get Rise finished and push my other two games forward, do a bunch of outstanding housework, and write some newsletters for my store. I've done nearly none of it. There's an article going around by psychologists that tells us not to worry about our lack of productivity - it's a totally normal coping mechanism. Ah well. I'll see if I can at least get the round rolled in the next few days.

And don't worry much about the Eastern Lair... just narrate it briefly. You don't need to show any rolls, well, you don't even have to make the rolls! Just narrate it as you wish the outcome to be.
 


You already had the dracolich move this turn. It flew over Mord and wing buffeted himand his minion. Can he move twice or is that just an oversight?

He hadn't actually taken a turn at that point - his wing buffet is a Legendary Action that comes with 40 feet of movement. He also moved (usual movement) AND then he used the dash action. (His tail was also a Legendary Action). With a wing buffet and a dash, he can cover 200 feet while flying!
 



Does Mord have any chance of catching up enough to see to blast him?

If Mord slides his way over to his troll skelly as it gets up, and jumps on its back while it carries him toward the dracolich, he can get to 75 feet from the creature. He won't be able to see it from there, but he can certainly hear it and pinpoint it's space. So he can target it with EB with disadvantage, or if you've got any slots you can go for another spell. Can you throw up one of those crazy Cthulhu clouds, or are you all out?
