    This will be a good refresher for a few of the combat rules. If your target is in a corner, there's no way to flank normally. Remember that achieving the flanking bonus involves two opponents being on opposite adjacent sides of the enemy such that a line drawn from their centers passes through...

    Let's see, Sobek. First of all, regarding your earlier post, you're welcome on the write-up and that was a horrible pun. I guess Seadogstyle doesn't have any sort of monopoly on those. As for your most recent post, it succinctly expresses everything I don't see happening in the future, at least...

    The shrieker is in a probable corner of the room. In order to flank it, Rogur (probably) will need to open the far set of iron doors. If they're stuck like the previous set, it will take at least a standard action and isn't guaranteed to succeed. Examination of the doors will take at least a...

    Chrysn Atalantes was first mentioned in the correspondence Chant found when he searched Fell's quarters at the beginning of Confirmatio. Below is the relevant information from earlier in this thread. I am also including the mention of Giersas, who has appeared a few times in previous adventures,...

    Regarding timing: this is an excellent point and deserves clarification on my part. From a narrative sense, actions in a round are simultaneous. It's also a convenient excuse for some of the abstractions we employ such as the pbp house rule concerning how declared movement is prioritized over...

    Thank you for continuing this discussion. Just briefly, I want to mention two points: Don't forget Giersas's communication to Chant regarding Chrysn Atalantes. I realize it wasn't directed at me, but I'm nevertheless unclear about the subject of Sobek's point #3. Is the ritual being...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I assume Rogur used his Thievery on the identified trap. The result is the same: it's neither activated nor disarmed. As for opening the door, I'll deal with what happens in the next DM post.

    Yes, the double doors weren't there before. Noxias was unable to counter the spell but didn't set off the trap, either. If someone's disarm attempt sets off the trap, I'll assume the party fled the area before it fully took effect.
