    Regarding skirmishes and stealth attacks, the simplest solution is to dismount before attacking; if Phantom Steeds aren't at risk of harm, we can always get back on them to chase down a fleeing enemy (the Steeds, if flying, have a speed of 20 so we can spend a couple rounds to hustle back tot hem...

    Our trump card, I believe, is the Box of Pixie Dust: The box currently contains twelve doses of pixie dust.With a minor action, if the box is in hand, and another hand is free, a sprinkling of pixie dust can be applied to one medium or smaller creature. The target of pixie dust turns invisible...

    Note on the allies: The firbolgs, whom I keep refrerring to as bugbears - all of 1) is about colab with them, while 2) has little to nothing to do with them. We could just do 1.d and move to 2) and be done with any ally business, or do something extremely basic, like send them into the fight with...

    Thank you for the clarifications, particularly for setting me at ease concerning the issue of splitting up the party. I'm a little unclear where the bugbears come from, still. As for stealth encounters, I'll be reviewing what house rules might be added starting with the May sessions. While...

    A couple of comments: 1.a:1 - Pan and the wolf are pals and they'd both prefer to travel together. 1.d will decide a lot for the group. The rest of my post are suggestions. I think the suggestions are well within the capabilities of the group to contemplate and come up with and very little...

    As an aside for the roster, Umi, Threr is at 82 hp since hitting level 14. I don't know of any trump cards we have for bad situations, except that it's probably on Chant or Orthrum. Threr is pretty much not suited for stealth missions, but that's never stopped us from trying! Threr is sort of...

    DiscipleofYawgmoth has an excellent point about the difference between characters and players, and I want to make sure everyone knows how I plan to adjudicate it. 1. Players should be able to play their characters in the way they wish, subject to various contracts they've made with me, such...

    Here is my reply to Seadogstyle's game-related issues. Phantom Steeds Each casting summons eight steeds, and there is no limit to the total number that can be summoned at any given time. They can only be ridden by those whom the caster designates, however. This means if you rescue someone and...

    I hate to be a party pooper, while a lot of this great grandstanding on our parts as players we have to consider a few things: 1) None of our characters come from or have a Military Background (that I am aware of) and these are not 'basic strategies.' While I applaud the thoroughness of which we...

    Good job here, Zus. I don't like to participate in discussions between players, especially when they look like they're going to be fruitful. Since Zus is new to the resources and constraints of the party and the situation, and planning is something that I strongly suggested recently, I feel I...

    Oh wow, I think this is beyond the scope of what the rest of us were thinking. My first concern is I was under the impression we're unable to communicate with or alter plans with the decoy group. As for travel and aerial recon, I suppose we'll have to keep pumping out Phantom Steed rituals until...

    Before I spoke about our strategy and my conclusion here is that we should keep allies completely in the dark about the specifics of the infiltration - they do not need to know what we'll be doing independent of their assault. We should pretend that the assault is Plan A, so that we have them ...

    Speaking of assault/infiltration, we have a rogue and many of us have summoned armor, but stealth can always fail at any moment. Are we planning on sneaking in until we get caught? Do we have any rituals or mass invisibility spells that will help us get in or out? The safest bet seems to be...

    Ah well. Derim moves to the back to block the corridor. Derim will move backwards with the party members, in order to stand as close as possible to the group and as far as possible from the corner that the enemy may appear from. Derim is ready to throw the javelin at whatever rounds the corner....

    Derim scans the walls of the room briefly. Satisfied that the only entrance to the room is the one he's blocking, he moves to the back of the group. As the hide and leather cover his body, his whisper and the craclkling of ice crystals breaking off of fur are drowned in the clamor of armor, weapons...

    From Tim's IC post he's "leeroy jenkins", Nox was already committed from my early rolls. Regarding my attack. I'll target the bottom right "cyan" square of the 'shroom then Nox will be 1 square NE of that position which will put Nox in the burst. Rogur can be 3 west of Nox which will put us...

    Wait, when did we decide to enter the room of the enemy beacon without a plan? I think there may be some confusion here. Rogur was moving IF Derim was; all Derim would do is explain what we're up against and suggest a plan, if the shroom itself didn't notice us and stayed still. I think you can...

    As a point of concern, I don't see how Scorching Burst can be cast after you move without catching either you or Rogur in the area of effect. Where is its target origin square going to be, and are you casting it before or after you move?

    Yes, Fire Shroud was canceled. I originally put "surprise round" in quotes because there wasn't an actual surprise round. It's just that resolution of Fire Shroud, if you had chosen to cast it, would have occurred in a surprise round-like time period. Everything is proceeding as shown in the...

    Umi, Since I'm too far away for the Fire Shroud, I assume that it was-- and that I did cancel it? In the surprise round am I still able to do a burst or something? Or is it a loss now?

    If Derim is planning on closing to melee range with the shrieker, then Rogur will use that movement as a chance to flank. If not, does shrieking count as "acting in the encounter"? That is, will Rogur be able to get combat advantage on the mushroom via First Strike? I'm guessing not. Since I don't...

    "Huh," is all Rogur has time to say, and then he is rushing forward to hack at the thing before the noise can draw something bigger and meaner.
