Round 2 (Hound)
Disruptive Strike (Immediate Interrupt) on the Commander's attack vs. Agatha at initiative count 18

DM EDIT: That's not enough to prevent the attack, but it IS enough that Mordax's attack (on Init 21) finishes off the Commander..

OOC: Wait - have I already attacked this round, then?

OOC: No. That's an addendum to last round. Disruptive Strike is an Opportunity Action, which [inconviently] means that Swift doesn't know when he can use it until AFTER I've posted the resolution ... so, sometimes I have to "revise" what I posted. In otherwords, that happened in Round 2, right before your action in Round 2 (which you already posted, and was already included in the Recap & Resolution).

... however, you [the PCs] have already begun posting for Round 3 (but I have not posted the Recap & Resolution for Round 3, just yet - cuz people are still posting their actions for it). So, go ahead and post your Round 3 actions now.

Yeah I know what you mean, it actually dropped bellow 60° the other night, and I had to pull out my windbreaker.

Swifthand wrote:Mal is still without power and it may be a few days, so he and I worked out the Recap & Resolution via phone. Here it is:

Round 3 Recap & Resolution ...


Init 22
Seeing Alex in danger, Davin focuses his fire on the Hammerer looming above him, missing with his first arrow, but striking true with the next.

Hound delays his attack.

Bolters continue to pepper the Cavaliers with their sturdy bolts.

Init 21
As soon as the Commander falls, Mordax goes sprinting off to find the Subcommander. The two closest Hammerers take swings at Mordax as he passes, and one connects. 5 Damage Mordax continues on, avoiding another attack, but running as far as he can.

OOC: You cannot spend 2 Action Points in the same encounter! You do have 2 Action Points, however, you can only spend one of them (and you spent 1 on Round 1). So, you double run, but then don't have enough juice to make an attack when you get there.

Also, I think you mixed up the yellow “S” and the brown “S” – the yellow is the Sandbender, the brown is the Subcommander.


Agatha delays her attack.

Init 12
Yelling for Agatha to get out of the thick of the battle, Straegis takes a swing at the Hammerer behind him and misses. Then, he angrily refocuses, and, on his backswing, cuts the Dwarf deep, momentarily drawing the attention of adversaries nearby.

Having killed the Commander, Hound hears Alex’s cry, and runs over to the Hammerer to take a bite out of his hide.

Agatha shifts around the battlefield and then lets loose a horrifying scream, bursting the Rockbender’s eardrums (21 Damage).

Init 8
Verity uses Straegis’ distraction to position himself for a charge against the Hammerer accosting Alex. With a primal cry of challenge, Zephyr and the Paladin thunder toward the dwarf and smash into him. The Hammerer is now Bloodied.

Alex scrambles to regain his footing, and then takes a wild swing at the Hammerer, connecting with the ruddy nose of the warrior, but only serving to make him flash a gap-toothed smile at the Aquamancer.

The Terramancer sends a wave of earth at the Hag, but the nimble Hag sidesteps it.
He also suffers from Agatha's mutterings.

Init 6

The smiling Hammerer takes a swing on Alex and misses (and suffers 8 Damage from Verity's Divine Challenge.)

The Hammerer on Straegis strikes true with his axe, but misses a follow up blow with his shield. 8 Damage

The Subcommander turns to Mordax, and with a steely gaze, brings shield and hammer to bear. But, Mordax’s piecemail armour fends off the attacks.

The rest of the battle continues to swirl around the adventures, with both side sustaining losses; the most serious of which is the loss of the Imperial Lieutenant and Corporal.


Begin Round 4...

Straegis decides to change position, as he does he tells Agatha to move again also. He swings wildly at the Hammerer but he is off balance and has not quite planted himself before swinging, he is sure this attack will not hit home. His frustration grows.

Move: To V10. OOPS! I'll take W10.
Minor: Tell Agatha to move.
Standard: Wolf Pack Tactics on Hammerer at V11.

Malazek wrote:Round 4 Resolution & Recap ...

Init 22
Davin quickly kills the Hammerer on Alex, and prepares to attack the Rockbender next.

After moving to better positions, the Bolters continue to fire at the Cavaliers ... with deadly results.

Init 21
Mordax continues toward the Subcommander, missing when he gets there. Whatever opportunity he granted to the Sandbender "en route" was not capitalized on.
(That is, the Sandbender's OA missed).

Init 12
Though failing to hit, Straegis does help Agatha move to a more tactical position, and at the same time maintains a flanking position to help the Cavaliers.

Hound rushes to Straegis's side, and digs his teeth into the Dwarf's shield; which accomplishes nothing.

Following Straegis's advice, Agatha moves to a better position and then readies an action.

Init 8
Verity unsuccessfully attempt to trample the Rockbender, who not only avoids getting run over, but manages to strike back!
OA vs Verity = 8 Damage.
Then, the holy warrior charges across the battlefield on his valiant steed.

Worried for Mordax, Alex sprints across the battlefield ... blasting the Rockbender with Ice Spikes as he runs. (The RB is now Bloodied)

The Rockbender steps from the icy spikes and into Agatha's trap (i.e. he triggered her Readied Action). Agatha lets loose a mighty Howl, that blasts the RB right into harms way (10 Damage, and pushed back [3-1=]2 Squares). Now adjacent to so many knights, the RB decides not to cast anything.

Init 6
The Cavaliers finish off the isolated Hammerers, reform their ranks, and move to help the heroes; those who can, surround the Rockbender and stab him about the neck and shoulders ... but the stubborn Dwarf just will not die!

The two closest Hammerers continue to hack away at Straegis, but the Marshal defends himself admirably. Wounded by the horseman, Agatha's baleful whispers finish them off.

The lone Hammerer guarding the ladder readies an action.

The Subcommander swings at Mordax, but cannot defeat the soldier's legendary armor.

The nearby Sandbender creates a "dune rift" and steps through it, instantly travelling to a more defensible position. From there, he casts "Crypt Sands" and flings them at Mordax.
6 Damage and Mordax is Weakened (i.e. Mordax deals half damage until Init 6 Next Round).

The Engineers surround Mordax, hellbent on protecting their leader ... but only one manages to land a successful attack.
13 Damage and I believe that drops Mordax to -10 HPs.
You'll need to start making Death Saves, again.


Seeing Mordax drop, the last Rockbender moves to where he can attack Verity. With ill-mannered magiks, he seeks to harm the young knight.
Crit! 17 Damage



Begin Round 5 ...

Straegis sees an opportunity to use his newly acquired fire, he unleashes it toward a bolter on the trebuchet, he figures he can catch multiple targets if it works as intended. Sadly whether caused by the rain or his inexperience, it fizzles as out in a small spark just inches from his fingertips. Suddenly, Straegis gets a crazy idea, he steps forward to talk to the cavaliers immediately in front of him. He says, "I need one of you to give me a ride behind this machine, I'm going to try to jump from the back of your horse on to the deck above."

Standard: Scorching Burst on Bolter at P15.

Ooo, sorry man, I've 27hps left. FYI, I'm pretty good about keeping my character sheet updated. If you navigate to the "Brackwater Characters" thread, you'll see I'm up to date with AP's, current hps, and the like (or at least I try to be - I presumed everyone was doing that).

Speaking of which, in round 5 Mordax will use a minor action (as well as dashing to the foe) to down his sole Potion of Vitality. That takes him back to 52 hps as he casts the flask aside.

OOC: You actually get to make an Attack roll for every target in your [3x3] area of effect! That means it hits the other three Bolters and the Hammerer standing around P15, as well as the one in P15.

Plus, you have your attack roll calculated wrong. Your character sheet says +4, but it should be +8 (Int Mod plus your Half-level). So, that 12 was really a 16 (which hits).

I'll go ahead and roll the other attack rolls for you: Crit, 24, 20, 16. All hits.

Despite making seperate attack rolls, you only roll damage once. I'll go ahead and roll that, too: 10 on the Crit, and 8 Damage to every other Target you hit.

Init 22
Davin moves to a better position, and shoots an arrow into one of the injured Bolters.

The Bolters on the west/front end of the trebuchet continue to fire at the Cavaliers (killing three); but those further to the east choose different targets.

One firs at Davin, but misses.
One fires at Hound and hits. 11 Damage
One fires at Alex and hits. 12 Damage
The last two fire at Cavaliers, killing one.

Init 21
Mordax quaffs a potion, and "dashes" to the foe. (You didn't have far to dash, so I am assuming you want to attack, as well? I went ahead and rolled for you): 28 to hit, 13 Damage.

Init 12
Hound pounces on the dying Rockbender, and tears his throat out.

Straegis bombs the westmost Bolters with a wicked ball of fire, burning them all (P16 is Bloodied).
The Hammerer before the ladder is also caught in the blast.

Next, the Marshal hitches a ride from a nearby Cavalier, and is carried around the trebuchet toward the middle of its eastern edge.

OOC: NEXT ROUND: Jumping onto the platform from the horse will require an Athletics DC of 50; but Straegis can "reach" the platform simply by standing up on the horse. This will require an Acrobatics or Dex check DC 15 to stand on the horse and then an Athletics check DC 10 to climb up ... but, you will be close enough to the top that it won't cost any extra movement (that is, your first square on the platform will be your first square of movement). The horseman will use his action to aid you in your balance/climb, si add +2 to your rolls.

Init 8
Zephyr hops over the mules' slackened harness, allowing Verity to speak a word of healing; and then the duo charges into the line of Engineers, crushing them under hoof ... but not before the Dwarves swing their hammers and axes at the oncoming knight.

OAs from Engineers ...
... 2 misses & 2 Crits. 13+13 Damage
OA from the Subcommander ...
... Crit! 13 More damage.
OOC: Sorry, bro. Three Natches in Five rolls? That's nuts, even for me.

Also ...
Passive Insight:
Something about the dying Corporal, lying facedown in the mud below, reminds Verity of his Brother Fortis.



Alex sprints across the battlefield, and lays down some nasty Graveyard Fog! Unfortunately, Verity gets caught in it; but Fortunately, the Queen's man shakes it off. The Subcommander isn't so lucky (10 damage and Slowed).

OOC: After you Run, you are -5 to hit until the start of your next turn. So, your attack rolls were actually 23, 8, 8, 18. Fortunately, NONE of these can get through Verity's Will. I randomly applied the 18 to the Subcommander, which barely gets him. .... Also, "Graveyard Fog" (Grasping Shadows) should do 2d8+Int (not 1d8+Int), so I rolled another d8 for you ... the Subcommander took 6 more damage than your post originally stated.


Agatha runs to a spot where she can take cover behind one of the wheels.

Init 6
The remaining Cavaliers dismount, finish the hammerer, and attempt to climb the ladder.

The Subcommander digs his axe into Mordax's side. 10 Damage

The last Rockbender decides the Waterbender is a fitting foe. He spits at curse and sends a barage of flying stones at Alex.

EDIT: This would have caused 14 Damage, but Davin Disrupted it.
OOC: How many HPs does Alex have left? Your Character sheet says you are full health, but you took 16 damage in round 2. So, I think you're at 17 HPs? (45-16-12=17).
OOC: It would make things a lot easier for me if you could post your HPs where I can find them easily (like in a statblock header at the beginning of your combat post, for example). Thanks!! Smile




The Sandbender runs.

Engineers on the platform move to aid the Bolters, and die as a result of Baleful Whispers. The three near Mordax take swings at him, but hopelessly miss.



Begin Round 6 ...

With an eagle eye, I see The Terramancer calling upon the forces of the Earth to strike down Alex.

"Veneficium."

Ator's bow begins to glow venomous-green. In an instant, I spin and, without aim, snap an arrow at the Rockbender. From across the battlefield a streak of emerald flies, and the shaft strikes true, landing with a sickening thud in the outstretched wrist of the magic-user and passing halfway through it. The venom disappears, and, for a instant, seems to flow into the arrow's wound.

I spin back to the Bolter, take quick aim, and send two arrows into his chest and shoulder.

Round 5
Immediate Interrupt - Disruptive Strike Rockbender on Alex

Round 6
Minor – Designate Bolter in P6 as my Hunter’s Quarry
Move - Move to cc16
Standard – Twin Strike Bolter in P6
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Move - Move to J21
Minor – Designate I22 Subcommander as Hunter's Quarry
Standard – Hit and Run Subcommander in I22

Disruptive Strike=28
Twin Strike 1=22
Twin Strike 2=26
Disruptive Strike Damage=13
TS 1 Damage=5
TS 2 Damage=6
Hunter"s Quarry Damage=2
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hit and Run=24
HR Damage=4
Hunter"s Quarry Damage=1

O.O.C. - The Rockbender is -8 to Hit Alex. He is also Poisoned by Ator's Bow. Take an ongoing 5 points of damage and you are Weakened, save ends. The Subcommander is knocked Prone.

Arrow Count=23/40, Wrapped=20/20
