    Huh, looking at the Evangelist it sounds like Person_Soul's Favored Soul, which is likely what I would be doing.

    ...I hadn't seen that, but now I want to play it, instead! It picks up Domains faster (although can't choose non-Domain spells), has a far better chassis, and gains other useful class abilities to boot. Definitely more of an all-rounder than a pure magely sort like the Evangelist is, but that might be more fun to play in this game. Thanks for pointing it out to me!

    I'll still stick with Ryuu for the time being though. He's fun, and I'm not one to dump characters unless there's a serious issue. I suspect the lack of healing might be problematic in this particular group, but we can at least try and find out.

    Ernir - if we have a partial or total wipe, we just make new characters and keep right on trucking, correct?

    Actually, if we die we just pop back to town. Making a new character is entirely voluntary.

    Corretha has a 50 ft movement speed, she went around.

    I don't know what I might provoke from (not able to look at the map right now to see what you might see) but I auto succeed at both Tumble and Defensive Casting of lvl 2 spells, should either be nessicary.

    I'm in a bit of a hurry, but I see a problem with Corretha's last action - T13 still leaves Corretha in the line of fire, making the Jaunt rather pointless. Which again would leave Corretha dead, which isn't what you wanted to do, I presume. (For recaps on immediate actions, see the OOC thread around the last time Corretha died.
    EDIT: See also this thread.)

    There is cover within Jaunt range (X12), but that would make both running outside and returning fire problematic.

    I can't Jaunt after the bolt is launched but before it hits me? I've done at least two other actions in the same space of time (readied actions to cast Baleful Transposition after they shot).

    Otherwise, hmm... Jaunt to X12. If Shaman redirects his attack then 5 ft to W11 and take the same action. If he doesn't do anything then I'll assume he's waiting for me and I'll 5 ft to Y11, which should maintain cover. Either way, end turn. As soon as I'm attacked by anyone, Jaunt outside.

    Ok.

    Hooks for character-switcharoo are cool, by the way. "Diablo's minions grow stronger" isn't funny in the long term.

    Readied actions are a bit better than immediate actions. The triggering action for a readied action continues on after the readied action takes place, this is not specified for immediate actions (precisely the opposite is stated for some immediate actions).

    Yup, the white squares are lighted. The rest is shadowy illumination.

    I intended on taking the same attack action in the event the shaman redirected his attack (same action meaning cast Chained Lesser Orb of Cold at him for 27 damage.)

    I'd like that to resolve before deciding how to use my extra turn (which will likely be on finishing the shaman).

    Also, woo D3 (in 12 minutes)!

    D3 has ground D3 to a halt.

    Luckily I brought my computer over to my buddies place so when it goes down a few hours at a time we can, you know, hang out in real life still.

    I love what I've played so far though (about 1/3 through Act 2 on Normal).

    It's probably me. My infamous dice mojo usually only affects me, but my attempts to minimize it by avoiding rolls might have angered the dice gods.
