Well since combat is over (and your initiative was lower than the other 2) I'm happy for you to hold off on the spell if you want.

Okay, now tyhere's a zombie in the scriptorium (it's the last one in the building folks).

The corpse of brother Erlik is prone (but beneath the table for cover). It also doesn't know you've seen it yet so I'm giving everyone a surprise round in which: Alarian walks over and draws his sword. Raoul advances, Ivor readies a spell (not sure which one 'though).

Raoul 20
Alarian 18
Ivor 14
Acolyte Erlik 14

Go for it guys. It shouldn't last long.

Saying apologies to the spirit of the already dead monk, Raul attacks the poor, re-animated monk.

OCC: oh oh, the filters at work wont let me access the page to role dice (stupid filters) sorry, im not going to be able to role on my own.


Alarian moves up beside Raul:
'i promise to end it quick, so you may rest once more.' with that Alarian attacks with his Broadsword. (power attack)

I didn't know if I'd passed his armour, yet :icon_wink:

And its been a while since I rolled my own dice in an D&D game :icon_smile:

Damage Roll: 1d8+3=11

That's alright. Just roll damage as well to save time (and posts). In this instance 'though, zombies are notoriously easy to strike. This one's prone and fairly helpless (-4ac) but he's hiding beneath a  table (I think that's around +2 now they've eliminated degrees of cover in 3.5) so that still puts him at ac 9.

If the zombie still shows any sign of unlife Ivor lets rip with the Lssr Fire Orb.

Nah, 11 damage after a (probably 2 point) power attack that's also likely to hit's easily going to finish it off.

Well, here we are again. Fortunately there aren't many zombies left (only two or three).

The geust house is pretty small so we might not need a map. Raoul is in the doorway, the corpse of odd job man Varril is throttling Jondyn. Ivor is just outside the door and Rogan is close behind (Aurum's at least 3 or 4 rounds away, possibly still putting his armour on).

Initiative:

Raoul 26!!!
Ivor 14
Varril 4
Jondyn 4
Rogan 1

OOh look, I managed to fit everyone on a map afterall. Go Raoul! Hack it down!
