Battle Thread 2: The Caveman
« on: August 23, 2007, 05:43:45 PM »

Okay, initiative order's on the map. Dekion (Mike) can post his actions, then I'll do the caveman (if he's still alive) and then it's everyone else's turn to post stuff. Go for it!

Dekion shield and weapons at the ready shouts "We mean you no harm!" If he advances then Dekion unleashes a full attack with his scimitar (takes 3 points for it).

The caveman charges which means that Dekion gets his prepared action before the caveman attacks (but after he takes the -2 ac penalty for charging).

Dekion hits the caveman for 15 damage and then his second attack fails to wound him.

The caveman (with 1hp remaining) barely manages to swing his club and hits an ac of 20 for 12 damage (3 point power attack). Fortunately the fighter's ac is 21 :).

Any minute now I reckon Rhana will step around the corner and finish him off (although it might be a waste to use the wand).

If I would have just nicked him with the second attack he would be dead right now.

Yeah, and to think you only missed by two. Quick guys, kill him before next round when he goes back up to being ac 14! (As if ac 14 would pose much of a challenge at the moment :p).

I should have just gone for a regular attack without the points.

I assume we hear the sound of battle? So Ellion will start running in that direction, stopping at the corner (is there still something hanging from the roof?) If so she fires at it. If not she does nothing (doesn't want to risk hitting Dekion)

Rhana will attack the Caveman with her Staff - moving to do so, if necessary, first!

Sorry for the delay guys, I wasn't able to get on the boards all of yesterday (although I could connect to every other website out there).

I'm guessing the staff kills it...

I had the same problem

I'll run after Ellion as fast as my legs will take me (not fast now), but asuming the dude is dead, will go up to it and search it as any rogue does.

"That didn't take long... Whoa! I like those emeralds!" I say noticing the eyes of the statue from a mile away.

I'll see if I can remove them in any way in a bit on the main thread

Okay, so Ellion advances and shoots at the hanging object in the distance. It's currently 55-60' away so there's no range penalties (although it is small). Her shot strikes true (and that'll be fun in the story thread). The caveman is distracted by the noise (again, see the main thread) and Rhana advances and smashes his head in with her staff.
