Will that have an effect if Balgin said it jumped down my throat? Balgin seems to be ignoring the questions I am asking him in this thread. I had mentioned before that he got into a defensive posture, but don't know if it made any difference. Just in case:

Aurum takes a 5' step back and gets into a defensive posture before he unleashes another blast of dragon fire.


I wasn't ignoring, just factoring the 4 extra damage into the next update.

It rolls a total of 4 for it's save. It takes 5 more fire damage. Aurum is now fighting defensively for +2 ac as he tries to force the thing out of him and it recils from the flames.

It attacks and misses (11). The d4 roll is another 1!

Balgin I have a question: Have you been factoring in that he has been fighting defensively from the start? If you go back and read my first post I put that in there.

Aurum continues using this breath weapon

Okay, well I won't go back and undo anything but I will give him double the benefit for the next two rounds to compensate for my oversight :).

Aurum breathes fire again! Once again the water elemental fails it's save (identical roll to last time). It takes 7 more damage. So that's 27 damage it's taken so far. It attempts an attack and gets a 15 (but because I'm doubling bonuses his ac is 19 this round and the next so that's a miss).

The d4 roll is a 2 so Aurum cannot breath fire next round.

OOC: Is any part of it exposed that can be attacked without attacking myself? If so Aurum will use his axe to attack it.

Aurum uses Axerager to attack any part of the exposed water elemental.

Yes, it's bigger than Aurum is (but not by much). Do you still want to fight defensively this round? If you'd rather forego the -4 attack penalty remember that I'm allowing you a +2 ac bonus for this round anyway due to overlooking it previously (but then the rules catch up with you and everything reverts to normal :p).

I will drop the defensive for this round and just hack at it. I do want to resume it for the next round though. Also As soon as the next round begins I will use his breath weapon again

Aurum strikes feebly, the water hampering his weapon's swing (total 10). The elemental hits (26) for 6 damage (rolled a 1). Next round Aurum breaths defensively. The water fails it's save (5) and takes 8 damage and is boiled out of existance.

I'll start writing the story version in a bit.

That was a downright weird fight.  I'm sure the story version will be even stranger!  :icon_eek:

It was a bit odd. How many times do you see a water breathing, dragon breath spewing dwarf fighting a water elemental under water? That and Balgin mised part of my post at the start. :icon_wink:

Ivor will continue to search for the most likely place that Aurum wil leave the sea.

Well, since no-one else's character seems to want to do this...

"I don't think there is anything we can do to be of any help at all to Aurum - and he seems to be taking care of himself if that light show was anything to go by.  In fact, if any one of us is safest alone, I'm pretty certain is Aurum! Lets move on.  When he finds a way out, he knows where we're going."

'all right then, lets move along,' alarian grumbles clearly not happy but willing to get going as he thinks aurum is dead anyway in his foolish attempt to search the sea bottom alone.
