    Muelennah groans inwardly as he sees the human run forward and collide with the hobgoblin leader. You have to lead with your shoulder! With Jorik up and armed, it looks like this valiant newcomer is the most vulnerable. Muelennah tightens his grip on his spear and charges the hobgoblin leader shouting "Away from him!".

    If I am reading B364 correctly, the hobgoblin leader is still at -4 to active defenses until his next turn, plus another -2 if I attack him from the side. I had better land a hit now, then!

    Spear, two-handed, reach 2.
    AoA (determined) to the vitals, move forward, forward-right, attack.

    The hobgoblin leader attempts to dodge out the way of Muelennah's charge, but he is far too slow. The spear thrust pierces the scale armour right at the kidneys and the leader collapses with a shout.

    With a grunt, and shaking his head slightly, Cedric struggles up on a knee into a kneeling position.

    B387 says the increased movement cost for the prone foe doesn't matter for the step, so I have acted accordingly. I did, however, give myself the -2 to hit for bad footing, which I hope is acceptable.

    Edit: sad day.
    The attack misses the Hobgob, so I must roll to avoid hitting Cedric.
    Looks like I have to put it in a separate post.

    Eniarch takes a step forward, points a finger at the back of the hobgoblin holding Cedric's head, and releases a blinding bolt of light at his target. The bolt, badly aimed, sails past the hobgoblin as the two struggle, and strikes Cedric.

    Apologies in advance if I'm getting any of this wrong, but I think it's the first time we've gotten to see this stuff applied. /sigh

    According to B389, there's now a chance I hit any target that was in my line of fire (straightedge, etc). This yields two additional targets, Cedric and Muelennah, and the same page yields the information about the roll I'm applying below.

    The roll to hit a target is the roll I'd have needed to hit them normally, or a roll of 9, whichever is worst.

    Roll to hit first target in line, Cedric:
    13, -4 for the Hobgoblin in the way, means that the roll is a 9. There is no range modifier, as Cedric is in the same hex as the Hobgoblin.
    (3d6)[5]
    Hit location: (3d6)[12] (Left Arm)

    Further negative modifiers may apply, but I can't seem to find any relevant ones, UP. Shield arm having a further -4 might apply (B552, note 6) but as the roll was 4 under the target, I don't think it matters, and it seems a little weird to apply an additional penalty for shields on an attack from behind.

    Roll to hit second target in line, Muelennah, if (and only if) Cedric is missed:
    13 would be required to hit him normally, less -4 for the Hobgoblin, and -4 for Cedric, and -1 more for range (3 hexes = 3yds, >2yds so using 5yd line on table from 550). This reduces the skill roll to a 4 required to hit, which is worse than a 9, and so is the roll required.
    (3d6)[13] (Moot - see above roll for Cedric)
    Hit location: (3d6)[11] (Also moot.)


    ...and with that, I'm going to bed. Someone wake me when we want "almost" to start counting.

    If I understand it correctly, Cedric receives no Active Defense, as the attack is from behind him. Sorry, Cedric.

    I am editing the previous post to reflect the bolt's true destination, which should, if I read this right, be Cedric's left arm. Limb hits reduce damage dealt to 1/2HP max per blow, and exceeding the damage threshold will cripple the limb, dealing 1/2HP damage - seven points, in this case. If I've missed nothing, Cedric will need to roll vs. HT at the end of combat (Basic Set, p422).
