How do we do this?

Post by Tim Hallow on Sun Oct 25, 2015 11:36 am

I do believe this is a good question; What's our tactic, going in to this? Perhaps more specifically when(/if) combat starts.
Who will stand were? Who wants support spells, in my instance.

I'll stand as far away from anything dangerous as I can, while still being within range of my spells(25 ft.).

"Well Timothy, it seems to me that we are merely here to back up Isabelle. She and our ranger friend here might read the trail and track the bear down once they've found evidence of her passing. You are I might be called up, if we can get close enough without disturbing the bear to, I don't know, cast a sleeper spell on it? Otherwise, we keep our eyes open, stay out of the way of the fighters and, as you say, stand back and cast support spells like magic missiles if it comes to that."

A brief rules point it might be worth bearing in mind:
You can use a melee weapon that deals lethal damage to deal nonlethal damage instead, but you take a -4 penalty on your attack roll.

(full rules for nonlethal damage are here)

Not that I'm encouraging metagaming per se, but I think you can all work out that this adventure isn't going to be "sit and watch the higher level NPC deal with everything". That's not a whole load of fun for anyone.

My character's more built for ranged combat rather than melee (I might want to consider purchasing a shield at some point) I do have a short sword I can use if I'm needed in melee.

Well, as suggested in the IC thread Mirana has said that she does have a shield and a sword so she can get close, also strongly suggesting to not try to put yourselves in needless danger (which I know, she probably does herself too) and she has warned that she plans on using Caltrops if it comes to a close-quarter situation with the bear.

I will be honest though, don't know why this is put in this thread instead of the IC one. Discuss it there first and then half OOC to clarify seems to make more sense to me. Razz

Mirana is opted for Ranged ad well, but it doesn't matter. Worst comes to worst she has offered to be up close.

So what is the plan? Or more to the point can anyone see a good reason why I shouldn't take a shot at the bear?

Shoot the bear by all means, I plan on moving forward a little bit and me + Eric frontline together to distract and deal subdual damage to her as you guys lower her current HP and support. Smile

You can see initiative in the Game Mechanics thread Andrew, think you and me are last!

[Going iconic here Smile ]

Winslow channels the inherent mystical abilities of his class through his body, building it up to the point where he can contain it no longer, pointing a finger at the bear and releasing magical energy in the form of a magic missile.

In the game thread, yeah. Just waiting on Ross/Robin, then the bear, then Mirana, then you.

I suggest we avoid any action that requires a D20.

To be honest I'm almost tempted to roll a D12 instead of a D20 for my next attack. Can hardly do worse.

Having said that this is better than the 1st time I played D&D with James. Where my experienced soldier managed to drop his sword on his 1st two attacks.

In a move that surprises no one, Eric misses. Although now he does it in a different thread. There is an uproar of laughter from the gathered hordes of observers, and you see some money change hands. Two Kobold cheerleaders prepare for the hilarity that will doubtless be Tim's action.
