A fragment of the Garden of Remembering
Apheori (GM): We're missing someone. Ganelon: Rob's not here according to my screen Bear Soup Guy: I am! No Frezak or Gan on my screen err Frezak or Gaur Gaurav: I can see Rob and Gan, but I can't see Frezak. Ganelon: I stand corrected, then. Gaurav is missing, yes. Bear Soup Guy: Missing but in action Gaurav: I'm here in spirit. Apheori (GM): What about Frezak? Or is he here too and it's lying about two of them to me? Bear Soup Guy: Server's must be un-synced or some bollocks Apheori isn't here now either D: Apheori (GM): I think I'm here, but I also keep getting disconnected. Frezak (GM): Here I am! Apheori (GM): Hi. Okay! Frezak (GM): HELLO Bear Soup Guy: Rock us like a Hurricane Apheori (GM): Gaurav is still here, right? Gaurav: Yes! Apheori (GM): Okay, weird. So everything's fighting, gan gave a rundown of current effects last time and I'll just paste that here: Shadow Greibel and Shadow Amadi have a -2 to defenses until the end of Gravy's next turn. They are also both marked by Gravy. Greibel is slowed and cannot shift (save ends). Apheori (GM): No-one can shift while next to Shadow Greibel for the rest of this fight. Shadow Rhu is the target of Rhu's oath, prone, and takes 1d6 radiant damage whenever Rhu hits him with a divine power (save ends). If he saves against it, he instead takes 1d4 radiant (save ends again). Gaurav: Being rocked in a cave sounds like a bad idea, hurricane or no hurricane. Apheori (GM): Aaaand we're apparently on shadow Radek's turn so he'll... uh... Ganelon: Those -2 to defenses are actually save-ends. That was a mistake on my part. Frezak (GM): CODRICHUN DOESNT LEAVE THAT EASILY Apheori (GM): I guess shadow Radek throws some infusions at shadow Amadi. This is confusing. >.< Ganelon: Not "some". Apheori (GM): And for some reason the first page is missing from all the character sheets I have. Whaaaat. Ganelon: You can only use one infusion per round. And you only get two. Apheori (GM): Really? It only mentioned healing infusions specifically. Ganelon: All infusions are healing infusions. Apheori (GM): Ah. Okay. Ganelon: Curative Admixture is just the only one that heals. Apheori (GM): Why are some prefixed Healing infusion and others not? Ganelon: I don't understand what you mean. He has Curative Admixture and Shielding Elixir and that's it. Restorative Infusion is a misleadingly named daily utility power that has no actual relation to infusions. Apheori (GM): Oh, okay. Ganelon: So he can use a minor to toss an infusion, turn his move into a minor to use that daily utility, and spend a standard action on something else. Apheori (GM): And I got the first pages back! Whee! Okay, so he does that... What would Radek do with his standard action? Gaurav: What had happened to the first pages? Apheori (GM): Filesystem dropped and they weren't actually in memory or something. Ganelon: Well, he has no robots. Alternatively he could shoot someone. Apheori (GM): Hmm. For some reason this one uses thundering armour on his Amadi trying to push Gravy away. rolling 1d20 + 9 vs Gravy fortitude ( 7 ) +9 = 16 Frezak (GM): miss. Gravy remains steadfast. And shaking the odd leaf out his clothes. Apheori (GM): LEAVES. Ganelon: GREEB. Apheori (GM): Greibel: You're up. Frezak (GM): The shadows near me are ripe for the plucking. And by plucking I mean blasting with bong-juice. Apheori (GM): Oh. GREIBEL: PERCEPTION. Before you do anything else. Bear Soup Guy: OKAY rolling 1d20+11 ( 3 ) +11 = 14 Apheori (GM): Greibel: Your bong feels a little funny. You're not entirely sure how or why. Now do your turn and stuff. I think you need to do a save for the slowed. I don't know how that works. >.> Bear Soup Guy: I can't remember if it's at the beginning or end of the turn Ganelon: End. Always end, unless you're Gravy. It's a Warden thing. Bear Soup Guy: Sexy And slowed, that cuts my speed in half or something? Frezak (GM): Makes your base speed 2. Bear Soup Guy: Ah, right-o rolling 1d20+7 vs Shadow Amadi reflex ( 20 ) +7 = 27 Frezak (GM): HAH Bear Soup Guy: \o/ Apheori (GM): Critical and everything. Gaurav: Even shadow godlings can't move too fast for Greibel Bear Soup Guy: So 12 damage to her and I have the fire hawk opportunity thing until my next turn Apheori (GM): Okay. Frezak (GM): FIREHAAAWK INTO HER TOASTY BOSOM Bear Soup Guy: Right in the solar plexus Apheori (GM): Eeeeek. Ganelon: Oh, right. You hit her with an attack. Know what that means? Frezak (GM): PEW Ganelon: It means the eyebot shoots a laser at her for 5 damage. Bear Soup Guy: Also I didn't factor the -2 defense into my 12 damage Ganelon: Nah, that's to being hit. Not to damage taken. Bear Soup Guy: Oh, excellent Ganelon: It would be Vulnerable (something) 2 otherwise Bear Soup Guy: Ah, right-o Firehawk + Eyebot. Terrifying. Apheori (GM): Dun dun dun. Anything else? Shouting? Pointing and laughing? Filling the bong with something else? Bear Soup Guy: A yellow and luminous substance that appears gooey and slightly hairy Greibel takes a large hit and rolls to save Is that a D10 or a D20? Apheori (GM): Eeew. Frezak (GM): D20 10 or higher removes the effect. Bear Soup Guy: rolling 1d20 ( 9 ) = 9 Curses Greibel: WHOOOOOO! HOLES IN THE UNIVERSE! Greibel coughs for about thirty seconds Apheori (GM): Amadi's up. Dude, that's several turns. XD That said, I can see it happening. Bear Soup Guy: Greibel can cough and take a turn. He's /very/ experienced. Apheori (GM): Exactly. Ganelon: By the rules, Amadi is unconscious and dying. Apheori (GM): What does unconscious and dying do? Ganelon: Unconscious means she basically can't act on her turn. Ellemerr: I'll roll a death save. Ganelon: Dying means she's got to roll saving throws to not bleed out. Ellemerr: rolling 1d20 ( 8 ) = 8 Ganelon: Also saving throws against the usual stuff, like that slow. Ellemerr: Oh? Okay, I'll roll that, too. I failed my death save. rolling 1d20 ( 18 ) = 18 I saved the slow. :P Apheori (GM): >.< Ganelon: Yeah, those don't just go away because you passed out. Apheori (GM): Well, that's something, at least. Ganelon: Ah, don't worry. I can give you minimal amounts of healing right now. Because this isn't an Artificer's job, damnit! It's a Cleric's! Ellemerr: I have three "strikes" for my dying. If I fail three times I'm dead. If I roll a 20 I spring to my legs. Apheori (GM): Does anything else happen with the dying thing? Ganelon: Radek tosses an infusion at Amadi, presuming her corpse isn't acting funny. Ellemerr: I think that's all. Ganelon: Well, you're straight-up dead if you have your bloodied value in negative HP. Apheori (GM): Her corpse is just... lying there. It looks a little fuzzy. Ganelon: That's good, expected corpse behaviour. Apheori (GM): But it's not quite glowing. Ganelon: She gets to heal as if she spent a surge, +2. (To Greibel): It's totally glowing. Ganelon: She doesn't spend a surge because this is donated blood! (From Bear Soup Guy): Oooo, fun Ganelon: This also means she's conscious. Frezak (GM): I think it's Gravy. Ganelon: Good luck, uh... staying that way. That's Gravy's job, now. Well, okay. I can do a little more for you. Frezak (GM): I AM DOING THE BEST I CAN Apheori (GM): Amadi is now unambiguously alive, but she still looks fuzzy. Like kind of out of focus or something. Ganelon: Radek summons his SECOND ROBOT, right about here. I need to figure out what this one looks like. Gaurav: Can you delay your turn if you're dying? It might be useful to move to just after your healer in the initiative order. Ganelon: You cannot. Gaurav: Interesting. Frezak (GM): It's actually an action to delay. Ganelon: Good enough, that robot. Radek now retreats out of the sight of all those people with the capacity to kill him. Gaurav: Huh! I didn't know that. And that's an awesome robot. Bear Soup Guy: With the Scooby Doo exaggerated running animation Ganelon: Shadows may take their turns. Apheori (GM): Greibel is very good at friendly fire. Ganelon: But let it be known that this 'bot is a full-fledged combatant and also highly volatile if destroyed. Bear Soup Guy: Did I hit a teammate? Also, what provokes opportunity attacks again? Apheori (GM): Naw, I'm just looking at your skills. Frezak (GM): Normal movement and ranged attacks. Bear Soup Guy: Oh, yes XD Movement adjacent to me, or just any movement that isn't a shift? Ganelon: If someone moves within your threatened range (adjacent). So if you walk up to a guy, you're safe. If you walk up to him and then one square in any direction, you're not. Bear Soup Guy: Got it Apheori (GM): What's an area burst 1 look like? Ganelon: 3x3. Frezak (GM): It's a 3X3 Apheori (GM): Ranged attacks are the bow icon? Ganelon: Correct. Apheori (GM): Okay. Thank you. I am so sorry for all of this. Ganelon: Hey, I got an excuse to summon robots. Frezak (GM): I got to be a tree of war. Ellemerr: I got dead! Bear Soup Guy: I have a very important question Ganelon: At this point Radek can have a seat, pull up his portable computer, and just patch straight into the Eyebot feed. Bear Soup Guy: Is Shadow Greibel smoking a shadow bong? Ganelon: It's like playing a video game where your player character is a fire-spitting robot and your camera shoots deadly lasers. Apheori (GM): BSG: Perception please. Bear Soup Guy: rolling 1d20+11 ( 17 ) +11 = 28 Apheori (GM): He doesn't seem to be smoking anything, except the entire shadow Greibel has the same sort of essence as the bong. It's like he is smoking stuff, just without the stuff, and without actually using anything to do it. If that makes any sense at all. Bear Soup Guy: He's infused with the essence of drugs Greibel is jealous Apheori (GM): He also shifts back behind the real Amadi. Gaurav: He *is* drugs. Bear Soup Guy: DON'T TWIST THE KNIFE FURTHER, GAUR Apheori (GM): And uses pure druggy darkness to summon faerie fire around the robot. Ganelon: FOOL. THE ROBOT IS AFFECTED EXACTLY LIKE A NORMAL PERSON. Apheori (GM): How so? I mean, why wouldn't it be? Ganelon: It rolls against Radek's defenses. Eh, I dunno. These things are honestly kinda crap. Frezak (GM): You know what isn't crap? CODRICHUN Apheori (GM): Greibel: You realise the shadow is focused entirely on Amadi. Okay, roll to hit everyone separate? Frezak (GM): uh-huh Apheori (GM): Thanks. I forgot how this works again. rm 1d20 + 7 vs robot will rolling 1d20 + 7 vs robot will ( 16 ) +7 = 23 rolling 1d20 + 7 vs gravy will ( 15 ) +7 = 22 rolling 1d20 + 7 vs amadi will ( 5 ) +7 = 12 Bahahahah. Ellemerr: Miss on Amadi. (To Ellemerr): He missed the only one he was actually aiming for. XD (To Ellemerr): Well done. Apheori (GM): Same roll for damage on all of them? Ganelon: Correct, but does this even do damage? Apheori (GM): rolling 1d6 + 4 on amadi ( 6 ) +4 = 10 Yes. rolling 3d6 + 4 on the other two ( 3 + 1 + 5 ) +4 = 13 Bear Soup Guy: It does a lot of damage Apheori (GM): ...well, it CAN do a lot of damage. Bear Soup Guy: Yes :D Ganelon: Okay. So the robot only has 10 HP, meaning it dies. Bear Soup Guy: Interestingly enough, the actual damage on that power is listed as an after effect of a hit Ganelon: Meaning it explodes. Bear Soup Guy: Does that have any relevance beyond being weird? Ganelon: Yes, it absolutely does. Apheori (GM): Oh. What? Ganelon: That means that the effect happens, and when you save against it, the damage happens. Apheori (GM): Oooh. Bear Soup Guy: Ah, yes So no damage yet I remember this now Apheori (GM): So nevermind on the damage on Gravy and the robot. Amadi was outright missed, though, so she takes the 10. Bear Soup Guy: Indeed Apheori (GM): And grants combat advantage until the end of shadow greibel's next turn. Bear Soup Guy: And Gravy and Robot are slowed and grant CA until they save and explode Apheori (GM): Oookay. Sorry about that. Bear Soup Guy: I made the same mistake last time I used that power It's misleading Apheori (GM): Heh. >.< Yeah. Does Amadi have any weapons? Ellemerr: Er... Ganelon: Since I can't put icons on my drawings, the robot is now on fire. Frezak (GM): That's pretty metal. Ellemerr: Realistically, I'd say no. Her sheet probably says otherwise. Ganelon: If you'd prefer a more faerie-coloured fire, go ahead and suggest one. Ellemerr: GREEN Apheori (GM): GREEN. Ellemerr: AND PURPLE Apheori (GM): AND GREEN. Frezak (GM): AND PURPLE Apheori (GM): WITH SOME BLUE. Frezak (GM): AND GREEN Apheori (GM): AND PURPLE. Ellemerr: MAYBE SPECTS OF GOLD Frezak (GM): AND PURPLE Ellemerr: specs* Apheori (GM): YES. Frezak (GM): *specks Ganelon: Wow, you three. Ellemerr: Aaaawesome Apheori (GM): Ellemerr: The sheet says longsword. XD Bear Soup Guy: I could see that Ellemerr: I think it's realistic to say she attacks with whatever she wants, whenever she wants. Apheori (GM): Yes. Does Radek's basic attack do a lot of damage? Can you kill something by damaging it a lot? Ganelon: Yes and yes. Well, hold on. BASIC attack? Because Radek's ranged basic attack is a 1d10+1 and it's highly inaccurate. Apheori (GM): Amadi: The shadow Amadi is grinning at you viciously. You see teeth. Lots of teeth. Coming at you. Gan: >.< Ganelon: Because it relies on dexterity. You can kill something by making it have its bloodied value in negative HP or lower. Apheori (GM): Is the basic attack for a monster the first one, or what? Ganelon: For a monster, it should be circled. Frezak (GM): On monsters its the circled power. Apheori (GM): Circled icon? Frezak (GM): On players, it's math. Apheori (GM): Math? Frezak (GM): Yeah, strength on melee, dex on ranged. Apheori (GM): Ah. Frezak (GM): ONly Gravy has a decent Melee Basic. Apheori (GM): And my gravy is dead. *sniff* Ooookay, you all are really... scary. Ganelon: PCs are scary, yes. Frezak (GM): AT least we didn't get Shadow Codrichun. Apheori (GM): That would have ended the universe. Ganelon: They generally have an unreasonably high capacity to deal damage if specialized in it. Apheori (GM): If they could do that, they wouldn't even be trying to take your key. Ganelon: If you saw what I could do with an Assassin... Well, let's just say we'd be killing that shadow first. Amusingly they normally have stuff to do with shadows. You could have a shadow assassin in Shade Form using Shadowstep to teleport around. Apheori (GM): Okay, shadow Amadi takes a step back too and uses staggering note on other amadi and probably gets hit with a shovel for her efforts, no? Frezak (GM): not if she just shifts away. Oh, wait. Yeah, on a shift I use my Combat Superiority To thwack Ganelon: Eyebot says "please hit". Frezak (GM): rolling 1D20+9 ( 14 ) +9 = 23 AC And she still has my -2 Apheori (GM): Yeah, that hits. Ganelon: It adds a "thank you" in the form of a laser for 5 damage. Frezak (GM): rolling 1D10+5 ( 8 ) +5 = 13 Apheori (GM): Oh, wait, she can't shift, nevermind. Ganelon: She can. Apheori (GM): I forgot about Griebel. Ganelon: It's just enemies who can't near him, or so I should hope. Apheori (GM): Oh, right. The one exception to his targetting everything... >.> Okay. Ganelon: So she takes 5 and 13 and does some singing. Apheori (GM): As a free action she has her George shoot the other Amadi... Wait, needs to hit first? Frezak (GM): Uhhh Ganelon: The Bard power? Frezak (GM): Staggering Note is only Melee Basic attacks. Apheori (GM): Right, sorry. Oh, right. She probably doesn even hit... rolling 1d20 + 6 vs amadi will ( 14 ) +6 = 20 Ellemerr: hit Frezak (GM): and -2 from my mark. Ellemerr: Still hit. Ganelon: Also, it's ranged vs. prone, I think? Ellemerr: Oh, then it's not hit. Ganelon: Welcome to 4E combat. Modifiers to everything. Apheori (GM): She hisses something horrible. Frezak (GM): Eh. (To Greibel): She said, "I want it DEAD!" (To Amadi): She said, "I want it DEAD!" Ganelon: Shadow Rhu. Prone and probably gonna die. Apheori (GM): Save is d20? Ganelon: End of his turn, yes. Apheori (GM): rolling 1d20 for samadi ( 8 ) = 8 Shadow Rhu gets up and... AGH WHAT IS THIS CHARACTER SHEET?! Ellemerr: The last word Shadow-Amadi hissed echoes out of real Amadi. Like her corpse is shouting it back at miss Shadow. Gaurav: It was free, is what it was. Ganelon: Hey, you're not a corpse! Greibel looks visibly shaken Frezak (GM): You're not dead! Ellemerr: Doh! But it does that without speech. Frezak (GM): Just Veeeery nearly. Apheori (GM): You should actually shout it. Ellemerr is totally paying attention. Ellemerr: FINE. Apheori (GM): GAURAV: Do you have range? What's your range? Amadi shouts the last hissed word back at Shadow-Amadi, making it sound ominously like an echo. Frezak (GM): Probably no more than 5. Gaurav: Most of my attacks are ranged 10. Well, Rhu's. Ganelon: I thought you were a melee guy primarily with some ranged powers. Like the daily you used last - that was ranged. Apheori (GM): What with a range of at least 4 and is relatively likely to hit? Also what's the deal with the oath thing? Gaurav: It's a mix between ranged and melee, but I got plenty of both. Ganelon: Huh. Apheori (GM): I can't read your character sheet so I need you to tell me all. Gaurav: Rhu can make an Oath of Enmity against one enemy in close burst 10. The Oath can't be undone until the enemy dies or encounter ends. It lets you re-roll melee attacks. Apheori (GM): Is that a minor or free action? Gaurav: minor Ganelon: Probably minor. But melee attacks mean it might not do much good. Gaurav: "Relatively likely to hit" -- in my experience, they're all relatively likely to miss, so if you really want to hit, go for a daily. Renewing Strike is ranged and lets you spend a healing surge as an effect. Oath of Consuming Light has an aftereffect. Apheori (GM): Are there any minors that it would want to do instead of the oath? Gaurav: Yeah, the more useful thing about the Oath of Enmity is that once an encounter, a party member can reroll any attack roll against your target. Nope! The Oath of Enmity is the best. Also: Rhu has an immediate reaction that lets him teleport 3 squares when an enemy hits or misses him with a melee attack. Apheori (GM): Great. Shadow Rhu gets up and swears and oath of emnity on Amadi. You can't make out the actual words, but you think you can hear something and it sounds horrible. Also I want insight from rhu. Rhu: (to shadowRhu) Say what? rolling d20+7 insight ( 5 ) +7 = 12 Apheori (GM): You're terrible. Gaurav: Rhu sees nothing. Apheori (GM): So if he really, really wants something dead, what would Rhu do? Gaurav: Ooo Apheori (GM): Suppose he has all the wrath of Hazz guiding him. That sort of wanting dead. I'm asking because I have no idea what any of these skills do because the descriptions are all USELESS. Gaurav: So given the not-hitting thing, if he was thinking straight, he'd make it a daily, BUT Apheori (GM): What are the dailies? Gaurav: Sequestering Strike is an encounter which lets him teleport someone up to 1+DEX (so 4 squares) away and teleport himself with them That's his "this person is bad news and I want them away from my party" power but, encounter. It does nothing if you miss. Apheori (GM): What's his 'this person has angered my god and must die' power? Gaurav: Don't really have one. (To Ellemerr): I think shadow Amadi is shadow Rhu's god. It's already happening... on the other side. Or something. Apheori (GM): Whaaaat. Gaurav: Dailies: Renewing Strike (you get to spend a healing surge) and Oath of Consuming Light (lots of aftereffects) Apheori (GM): What's the second one? Frezak (GM): But, then, how do you know if you're happy? Or sad? Or ready for dessert? Apheori (GM): Not with a face. Gaurav: That's the one I hit shadowRhu with last round. Apheori (GM): What did it do? (From Amadi): WELL THAT SOUNDS JUST PEACHY Gaurav: Oath of Consuming Light Avenger Attack 5 You place a burning mark of divine radiance on your foe as you swear an oath to destroy this creature. With every wound you inflict on the creature, the burning mark erupts in searing light. Daily ✦ Divine, Implement, Radiant Standard Action Ranged 10 Target: One creature Attack: Wisdom vs. Reflex Hit: 2d10 + Wisdom radiant damage. Whenever you hit the target with a divine power, the target takes 1d6 extra radiant damage (save ends). Aftereffect: Whenever you hit the target with a divine power, the target takes 1d4 extra radiant damage (save ends). Gaurav: Miss: Half damage. Whenever you hit the target with a divine power, the target takes 1d4 extra radiant damage (save ends). (To Amadi): AND SHE WANTS YOU DEAD. Gaurav: So, lots of ow. (To Amadi): Apparently so she can take your place or something? I don't even know. Apheori (GM): Thank you. That's ranged, right? Right. I can read. Shadow Rhu does that at Amadi. Gaurav: That's my favourite, unless you want the drama of him charging someone down and jumping them 4 squares away. Apheori (GM): Waaait. What's that one? Ganelon: Nah, you can't do that. Unless it specifies that you can as part of a charge. Gaurav: Sequestering Strike. But that's an encounter, so it may fail, and I don't think shadowRhu has time for a second shot. Ganelon: Since he needed to use a move action to stand up. Apheori (GM): What's the description? Gaurav: Yeah, that's a melee attack. He can spend an AP. Apheori (GM): Remember, shadow rhu isn't exactly in control of his... er... brains. Which is to say he's a zombie. ZOMBIE. ZOMBIE ZOMBIE ZOMBIE. But Rhu doesn't know that because Rhu is an idiot. Ganelon: I'm assuming APs are the one thing they don't have over us. Gaurav: Rhu's distracted! Ganelon: Well, you know. And voices. Gaurav: Sequestering Strike -> http://imgur.com/enl4czP Apheori (GM): And Rhu completely failed to notice that his shadow only got up when the shadow screatched its horrible command. Poor, poor Rhu. What's Rhu's attack and damage with that? Gaurav: That sounds like a terrible, terrible thing to notice. Apheori (GM): And range. Gaurav: Which one? Apheori (GM): Sequestering. Gaurav: Wisdom is d20+7, it's a melee so no range, and damage would be 2W with the maul, so ... 2(2d6)? Ganelon: 4d6. +Wis. Gaurav: Oh, +WIS, so +3 I think Apheori (GM): Okay, so you still need to start out next to it. (To Amadi): Changelings sound scary. Gaurav: The one advantage the Renewing Strike daily has is that you can spend a healing surge, which might help shadowRhu hang around long enough to get up to Amadi if he wants to Sequestering Strike her. Apheori (GM): Nope, he just throws an oath of consuming light at her. Except instead of being, well, light, it's actually quite dark for some reason. Frezak (GM): YOU DONT SAY Apheori (GM): I KNOW, RIGHT? rolling 1d20 +7 vs amadi ac ( 9 ) +7 = 16 Gaurav: So that's d20 + Wisdom (7) vs Reflex Apheori (GM): IS THAT RANGED? Gaurav: yes, so it's against reflex, not AC Apheori (GM): IT SAID AC. Gaurav: Ranged 10 ... are you looking at Sequestering Strike? Apheori (GM): No. Wait, that's ranged? Gaurav: urk hang on Frezak (GM): Consuming Light is the ranged one. And that is against Reflex Gaurav: Oath of Consuming Light -> http://imgur.com/XN53lpI Amadi: Unless it's against fort it's a miss anyway. Ellemerr: OOC. ... Probably. Gaurav: It's a daily, so it still does half damage on a miss. Apheori (GM): His character sheet clearly said AC. His character sheet is horrible. Please kill him quickly so I don't have to use it again. Gaurav: Oh, right, so it does. Weird. An oath that literally breaks your armour would be kind of cool, though. Ellemerr: Are you rolling that dmg so I can take half of it? Apheori (GM): What do I roll, exactly? Just the usual? Gaurav: 2d10 + wisdom (+3, without half-level) radiant damage Apheori (GM): What's the three? Gaurav: oh, sorry, +5 wisdom modifier I forgot how wise Rhu was Apheori (GM): rolling 2d10 + 5 ( 5 + 4 ) +5 = 14 7, then? Gaurav: And then whenever you hit the target with a divine power, the target takes 1d4 extra radiant damage (save ends) Apheori (GM): Even on miss? Ellemerr: Downed again. Gaurav: That's the miss variant. On a hit, it's 1d6, which then downgrades to a 1d4 after the save. (To Ellemerr): All you need to do is take out the other Amadi. Gaurav: Which shadowRhu needs to save against from Rhu's last attack at the end of his turn. (To Ellemerr): ...you think? Or you would think if you weren't being so... dead. (From Ellemerr): Gee, thanks. :P (To Ellemerr): Although I really want that to happen while you are downed, because the results there would be hilariously awesome. Apheori (GM): Oh. rolling 1d20 srhu ( 10 ) = 10 Whazzat do? Gaurav: I think 10 and above is a save? Frezak (GM): Yeah. Gaurav: Cool. So now any divine attacks I make against shadowRhu only cause 1d4 extra radiant damage Apheori (GM): Does that have an effect on save to also damage him, or am I thinking of something of Greibel's? Gaurav: Nope, that's all the saves shadowRhu needs to make for Rhu, and I don't think anyone else has hit him yet. Ganelon: He's save for now. The Aftereffect on this is that it does less damage when triggered rather than vanishing completely. And I'm sorry but that sleep I mentioned is starting to hit me harder. This is certainly too early to stop, though... Apheori (GM): Ah, okay. Frezak (GM): Hag needs sleepytimes in about 30. Apheori (GM): Rhu's up in the meantime. Ellemerr nods. Gaurav: Should Rhu keep beating up on shadowRhu, given that shadowRhu seems more interested in beating up on Amadi, or should Rhu charge into the mess with the rest of you and try to damage shadowAmadi/Greibel? Ganelon: You'll get your oath usage back and have a better chance of hitting ShadowRhu. Either way you have eyebot support. Gaurav: Okay. I figure I might as well use up my second daily, then. Renewing Strike on shadowRhu! rolling d20+7 wisdom vs reflex on shadowRhu ( 15 ) +7 = 22 That's a hit, unless there's +/-s I've forgotten about. rolling 2d10+5 lightning damage ( 6 + 9 ) +5 = 20 Ganelon: Also, eyebot does 5 and your mark does 1d4. Gaurav: oh right rolling 1d4 ( 1 ) = 1 So 26 damage in all, and Rhu gets to spend a healing surge, which he does. Apheori (GM): You just killed yourself. Bear Soup Guy: Not uncharacteristic based on Rhu's track record Gaurav: Huzzah! Who are we focussing on next? I'll oath of enmity them. Apheori (GM): There's another puddle. Bear Soup Guy: Shadow Amadi seems to be particularly nasty, but Shadow Greibel hasn't been hurt as much Gaurav: And: should I spend my AP and Whirlwind Charge someone? Frezak (GM): move up and give me a flank on Shadow Amadi? Just stepping up 1 would help me. Gaurav: Done! Frezak (GM): Ta! Gaurav: So that's my standard and move. My minor is to Oath of Enmity this miserable excuse of a shadow Amadi. I'll hold on to my AP for now. End of turn! Frezak (GM): I'm wondering whether I could punt the firedroid with a minor action? Ganelon: To accomplish what? It exploding? Frezak (GM): Just have it get in the way and annoy teh shadows up top. Ganelon: It's actually Small sized. Pretty big for a 'bot. That would be very useful if you could, though. Frezak (GM): eh, I'll just move to here. What does the DM say? About robot-punting? Apheori (GM): Uh... you can. But you need to roll punting. Frezak (GM): Athletics? Apheori (GM): Although I'm not sure it makes sense as a minor. Frezak (GM): Gah I can only spend a minor. Apheori (GM): Not that any other minors do either. So go ahead. Athletics is fine. Frezak (GM): rolling 1D20+8 ( 14 ) +8 = 22 Ganelon: It's like shotput, except this is a piece of valuable technology. Apheori (GM): That works. Frezak (GM): I'll shift. Apheori (GM): Where do you want it? Damages it a little, though. Frezak (GM): that's fine. Apheori (GM): Radek: 2 damage to the tincan. Frezak (GM): I now use.... Roots Of Stone Ganelon: These poor things are so fragile that I'm glad this one explodes. Noted. Frezak (GM): Sgreibel first, then Samadi rolling 1D20+9 ( 5 ) +9 = 14 rolling 1D20+9+2 ( 7 ) +9+2 = 18 Without counting their -2 to defences from Codrichun Apheori (GM): Yes on sAmadi, no on sGreibel. Frezak (GM): rolling 1D10+5 ( 2 ) +5 = 7 And 5 extra laser damage. If She tries to move away on her turn, she is knocked prone and takes 4 more damage. And they are both marked. Apheori (GM): Nope, she's dead. The Gravedigger: GET OFF MY FRUIT Apheori (GM): She and all the other remaining shadows all dissolve into sludge. Frezak (GM): Oh. Yay me. Gaurav: Yay you! Bear Soup Guy: She was the sludge queen! Frezak (GM): Gravy grabs Amadi and runs up to Radek with her in his arms. Apheori (GM): SLUUUUDGE. Wait. Wait wait wait. The Gravedigger: Fixitfixitfixit Apheori (GM): The sludge... does stuff. Frezak (GM): Oh GOODY Apheori (GM): So I dunno why I drew sludgeo n the map. The sludge all flows toward Amadi and she absorbs a bunch of it. You manage to pick her up as this is happening, but there's sludge trailing down, pulling into the floor, all sticky-like, and more of it is still flowing up. What do you do? Frezak (GM): I do exactly what I said I would. Apheori (GM): Aiight, the sludge follows you and keeps flowing into her as you go. What touches you also hurts a bit. Like... it's corrosive sludge. Or something. The Gravedigger: Please? Radek: Exactly which problem do you want me to /fix/!? The Gravedigger: The lying dead like a ragdoll one? Frezak (GM): I KILLED THINGS FOR YOU George: So not the one in which she just absorbed all the... whatever that was? Do we even know what that was? The Gravedigger: Eh, that weirdness happens all the time. Radek injects his second healing infusion into Amadi. Radek: If that substance does anything close to what I imagine, this will be next to useless. The Gravedigger: Well, I appreciate you helping. Ganelon: But if he's wrong, she gets to heal up again. Apheori (GM): What does he think it does? Frezak (GM): If it DOES fail I'm tossing her into the water. Ganelon: It heals wounds. Gaurav: An astute plan. Apheori (GM): No, the substance. Ganelon: I suspect the sludge inflicts them much more efficiently. Apheori (GM): Hmm. Ganelon: If it's making her dead, he really lacks the means to stop it. Apheori (GM): Nothing happens. Do you want to try to take a sample before the rest of the sludge goes into Amadi and/or the floor? Some of it did just sink into the floor. Ganelon: Yes. Very much yes. I have gloves on (WIZARDING GLOVES) if that helps any. Apheori (GM): Roll a d20. Ganelon: rolling 1d20 ( 15 ) = 15 Apheori (GM): Yeah, that works fine. Radek: I don't know how this works and I don't know how /she/ works. (To Greibel): Doing anything with that bong of yours? Radek holds up a vial of the sludge. Radek: ...But I am certainly going to try and find out. (From Bear Soup Guy): Holding it? (To Greibel): The bong is weird. It's changed colour. It's black. Frezak (GM): TO THE WATER (To Greibel): AND GLEAMING. Apheori (GM): Radek: Amadi looks pretty dead at this point. Which is to say she looks perfectly normal, but she's not moving. All the wounds from the fight are gone, though, for whatever reason. Is Greibel just standing off to the side doing nothing at this point? Rhu: I could try to bring Hazz' in on this, but ... [makes a Hazz'-isn't-exactly-reliable gesture] Greibel walks up to the lake to try to shake out his bong (To Rhu): YOU LOST HER. Ganelon: Is the stuff in her system? (To Rhu): YOU LOST THEM ALL. Rhu brushes it aside. Apheori (GM): Gan: Not that you can tell. Try a medicking check. Radek: rolling 1d20+9 Heal ( 3 ) +9 = 12 Apheori (GM): Greibel: It seems to just be that the glass has changed. It's not dirty. Ganelon: Baaaah! Knowledge of medicine, you've betrayed me! Apheori (GM): Radek: Everything looks... normal? Except... dead. Minor issue. Greibel is unconvinced and tries to rinse it with the funky water Bear Soup Guy: Unconvinced or a bit panicked Apheori (GM): The dead Amadi burbles up some funky water. Bear Soup Guy: That was his favorite bong! :( Rhu walks over to the group watching Amadi. (To Rhu): You feel an emptiness, a silence. It's a bit weird, but probably not important. Radek: I a damned defibrillator, here. She's dead. Ellemerr: Hells, time. I should be in bed. >.< Ganelon: I need a* Apheori (GM): Go to bed. You're dead anyway. >.> Frezak (GM): I hold her upside down to shake out the water. Ellemerr: Feel free to... keep going until I can... do stuff, yeah? >.> Frezak (GM): A good vigourous shaking Apheori (GM): We shall end this with you on the ceiling. Frezak (GM): I DONT KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO Ganelon: This is a nice cliffhanger to end on. Apheori (GM): Greibel: The bong seems to be mostly okay. You just need to fix it somehow. Ganelon: And I would also like to sleep. Apheori (GM): Get the black back out of the glass. Or get it so it's actually properly part of it? Gravy gets all the water out. Something something. SLEEP FOR EVERYONE. Bear Soup Guy: YAY D&D Ganelon: Goodnight! Apheori (GM): Good timing, tired people. Very, very good timing. I almost forgot the entire point of your being here AGAIN. Gaurav: I shall invoke the awesome don't-do-much-i-ness of Hazz'ridan the Great ... next week. Apheori (GM) runs around flailing. Bear Soup Guy: Sweet dreams and pleasant day-time activities everyone! Ellemerr: Sweet nightmares to all. Gaurav: Bye, everybody!
