    Yep, Yrisz and Rogur appeared on the scene within a few hours of each other in game time. And let's not forget that if we're at 5 years, that means Umiushi has to be at least 5 1/2 years invested in this campaign, as it started in March 2009. Someone strike up a chorus of Auld Lang Syne, and let's...

    Huh, I just noticed that I passed my 5 year anniversary of my first story post in this campaign. (2009. Holy cow, 2009.) Thanks for a great 5 years so far, Umiushi, and for bringing together a group of fantastic players who are a blast to game with. --T

    Sorry Umiushi, I didn't catch that decision. Yes, Noxias will use Shield to reduce or eliminate that damage. --T

    From the previous round, will Noxias cast his Shield spell to save himself from another 11 points of damage? I understand that Palpatim is busy, so Ithelryn or Cutopia, feel free to take this question.

    Here's a review of the terrain features: Blue Outlines - thin tree trunks are difficult terrain and provide cover from ranged attacks to anyone in the square. Green Outlines - tall grass doesn't impede movement but provides concealment from ranged attacks to anyone lying prone in the...

    Man, rogues just do not belong at the bottom of the initiative order! Umiushi, thanks for taking care of Rogur's attack. That will do just fine, as Noxias' next action will move the Flaming Sphere away from him. I don't have Noxias' character sheet handy, but I should be able to make do with what's...

I'm having a hard time following the move actions to date, so I'll post Rogur's actions in general terms and let Umiushi move him appropriately. Target priorities: ...

    After a bit of investigation, I think the reason that Pradize's damage in the recent post was incorrectly calculated is because there is a space after the last number in the ROLL tag, while there is no trailing space in the older, otherwise identical, post. The error message is that the split()...

    One of the perils of a PBP game where player actions are resolved asynchronously. No worries. I am going to have Rogur go off on Nox a bit after the encounter is over, though. He's actually got a bit of a problem with wizards in general; fire wizards in particular (I think that came up once...

    Sorry for not replying earlier. Yes, the escalation bonus applies across the board for ease of administration, so I'll add on a +1 to Yrisz's attack roll. I also forgot to repeat the character links, so here they are: Konstansz (base +9 to hit and +7 damage with primary attacks)...

    Thanks for the clarification on Rogur's escalation die. I can see where he might lose it if he spends an entire round trying to hide, but frankly, that's his problem. :) Do you have a ruling on that? For now, I'll make my rolls assuming that Yrisz does not get a bonus for this round, and you...

    Thanks for the warning. I hadn't considered that stealth and shoot would reset the escalation bonus, so I'll keep that in mind as I go. Will the escalation bonus apply across the board in cases where you increment a round number early for ease of record keeping, as in the current encounter? In...

    I think we've reached a consensus for where to go for now, then. I will keep the requirement that players be familiar with the Player's Handbook, but players can now utilized options from the entire set of rules that are allowed for this campaign. As far as treasure goes, I don't care if it's a...

    Umiushi, you've remarked before on the party's treasure allergy. I thought we were actually making up for it with this adventure, since I fully expect the final reward to be a hoard the size of Smaug's. :) I expected that cutopia and Ithelryn would be back at some point, and it's good to hear...

    Staying the course it is. Also I have word that Ithelryn will try to be back by next Tuesday, and I'm expecting to hear back from Cutopia or see Cutopia's post in the very near future. I do want to say a word about "rails." If you "derail" from a game on rails, you get the same metaphorical...

    This version of the map has some of the non-clear terrain marked. Everything in and near the expected combat area is marked, but the peripheries of the map generally aren't. Blue Outlines - thin tree trunks are difficult terrain and provide cover from ranged attacks to anyone in the square. ...

    I have very little time to write this, so I'll respond in full later. Very briefly, you can spend a minor action on a Perception check to note any differences, if they exist, between your assailants. There are terrain effects, and I'll describe them in full later tonight or early this morning.

    I was expecting something like this. I've known for a long time that the party is allergic to treasure, even if you're in denial about it. Now that you're finally going on an adventure whose express purpose is to gather treasure, the following things happen: Faced with a choice between the...
