  1. Feinting in 4e D&D

    I just noticed this today.

    excerpt from the D&D PHB

    Bluff vs. Insight
    Gain combat advantage: once per combat encounter, you try to gain combat advantage against an adjacent enemy by feinting. As a standard action, make a Bluff check opposed by the enemy's passive Insight Check. If you succeed, you gain combat advantage against the enemy until the end of you next turn.

    Give up an entire attack to get a lousy +2 bonus to hit? Not likely, especially ...
  2. For King and Country: Session 6, part 1

    3rd day of Kythorn
    We claimed our money today for our work clearing out the bandits on the road south of Baldurs Gate and now have a enough money to head for Candlekeep. We have decided that we will leave on the 5th of Kythorn for Candlekeep on the pretense of looking for further work in a new city. Diawin has agreed to go to the temple of Sune to try and find Miriam and speak with her about our imminent departure. The rest of us went our separate ways to make preparations for our journey. ...
  3. For King and Country: Session 5

    20th day of Mirtul
    I woke this morning with a splitting headache caused by drinking far to much cheap wine. The pain was somewhat offset by the fact that I found myself lying between two beautiful vixens. After dressing I stumbled out to find nourishment and another drink in order to properly start my day.

  4. The Art of Racing Cows

    So here I was, laboring under the delusion that 4e combat was just really slow paced. Then I talked to someone in chat the other day and found out that it's a lot faster than 3e , yikes, really? So last night I asked some of the guys who play in our game, who all used to play 3e, if this was indeed the case. It appears that it is. All I can say is, wow! Maybe time has partially erased or blurred my memories of how long combat should or did take in the other rpg's that I used to play. I don't ...
  5. For King and Country: Session 4, part 3.

    19th day of Mirtul
    On the night of the 18th I was in a deep sleep and awakened by Miriam who poured a bucket of ice cold water over my head. It seems that while I slept we were ambushed by a small group of kobolds. They were no match for our group and were all dead by the time I had fully awakened. We discovered that they had gained access our cave through a secret entrance that had gone undetected. We decided to investigate further in case there were more kobolds or other creatures lurking ...
