Battle thread 4: Assorted scuffles with zombies in the abbey
« on: April 25, 2008, 12:42:44 PM »

Okay, so encounter number 1 (or whatever we want to call it). Acolyte Werrin using a trowel as a (not very effective) dagger.

Present are Aurum, Rogan, Kiaphas, Ivor and Raoul. I think ALarian's present too (since he was involved in the fight at the elven ruins).

Unfortunately the corridor's pretty narrow.

Here's an initiative order:

Raoul 18
Aurum 14
Alarian 12
Kiaphas 11
Ivor 6
Rogan 6
Werrin the zombie 0

The hallway's got room for about 1 abreast but I'll do a quick map and we'll see how things go. Let's group it like this:

Group 1: everyone exept the zombie.
Group 2: the zombie.

Did the characters suspect we'd be facing undead before we got there? If so, I'd like to have cast Shillelagh on a plank of wood picked up on the way. Or perhaps a kitchen implement?

Otherwise I'll stick to my sabre.

Yes they would have expected it by the time they got back. So grab that rolling pin :angrywife:

I'd stick to the sabre anyway - slashing damage bypasses damage resistance, while the bludgeoning damage means that you lose 5 points of damage off each hit.  So long as the sabre does less than d6 damage, you'll probably be better off with that.

Then perhaps I should remind you that I don't like it because it hurts my eyes :p.

Raul will move and attack the zombie with his Longsword.

Unless he can't get through that doorway because of Kiaphas, in which case, he would do nothing this round - Aurum will probably be able to take care of it! ;)

Is orange any better, Balgin?

Not really. It's not a matter of pretty colorus or how bright they are. They just don't contrast with the background enough so I need to look that little bit harder and I don't like it. I don't see any need to write in different colours anyway.

Raoul moves and attacks (attack 16, 8 damage). Aurum attacks (22 to hit, 18 damage). Brother Werrin is no more. Which aura was Aurum using last? If it was the damage one then they each did an extra point of damage.

Aurum has his power aura (the damage one) up.

Oh, yeah. I was getting mixed up with skeletons.  :images: In that case, out with the sabre! I'll also cast "Sharkskin" on myself.
