    I'll get a post up later on tonight, or in the morning. Gotta strategize and weigh my options...

    Here's what Zimelda knows.

    Minion - no info. It seems to be a slightly different build than any she fought before.
    Slinger - no info. It's the same type she fought before, on the road, with the annoying clay pots, what did they do again?
    Dragonshield - Small natural reptilian humanoid. More heavily armed and armored than a typical kobold, it can force enemies to pay attention to it, and knows a trick or two. (You already saw the trick used against Arjhan) No particular resistances or vulnerabilities.

    STANDARD ACTIONS
    m Short Sword (weapon) * At-Will
    Attack: Melee 1 (one creature); +7 vs. AC
    Hit: 1d6 + 6 damage.
    Effect: The kobold marks the target until the end of the kobold’s
    next turn.
    M Dirty Tactics (weapon) * Encounter
    Attack: Melee 1 (one creature); +5 vs. Reflex
    Hit: 2d6 + 7 damage, and the target is immobilized until the end
    of the kobold's next turn.
    Miss: Half damage, and the target is slowed until the end of the
    kobold's next turn.
    MINOR ACTIONS
    Shifty
    Effect: The kobold shifts 1 square.
    TRIGGERED ACTIONS
    Dragonshield Tactics * At-Will
    Trigger: An enemy adjacent to the kobold shifts or an enemy
    moves to a square adjacent to the kobold.
    Effect (Immediate Reaction): The kobold shifts 1 square.

    Quickblade: Perhaps Captain Kelfem mentioned this type to her -- it is extremely good at maneuvering in battle, able to dart around (or through) the front line untouched in order to attack the most vulnerable. If he notices Rat or the boys, they're dead to rights.

    Zimelda can communicate this info to the other PCs as a free action on her turn.

    Oh wow -- I'd totally forgotten about Dragonshield Tactics! He could have dodged out of the way of Arjhan's strike, forcing Arjhan to either change targets or eat an OA. No biggie, we'll leave things as is.

    Snowbody, does the kobold have a climb speed?
    How did they "shift" away from me without provoking OAs?

    Ouch. Dunno if that hits or not. Was my Lolth's Boon power a one-use-only thing? I've already used it once before, dunno if I can use it again or not.

    Dekkah - The kobolds do not have a climb speed, but these trees have been specially prepared (notches cut into them, which Mertes noticed), and the kobolds have practiced so they can climb up and down without having to roll. It's still a climb action (costs double movement, grant CA, no shifting). They will have to make an athletics roll to hang on if they're hit while climbing.

    Kobolds have a minor action shift 1. The slinger used his move action to stand and his minor to shift away.

    Lycan - A bunch of issues here.

    1. You didn't specify the squares you wanted to walk through. In these cases I'll pick the most direct route that avoids OAs. In the future though you may want to specify the squares in case you suspect some square contains traps.

    2. 4e calls these things Minor actions, not swift actions

    3a. Zimelda's base attack bonus is +6, and the divine fortune adds 1. However, the quickblade has partial cover from the trees (-2) so it should be +5. A roll of 14 is indeed a miss. (She's in the trees now too so you benefit from partial cover)

    3b. Lolth's Boon is one-time-use, but fortunately for you, you never used it. (During the last battle, with the acid-spitting kobold, you had said you'd use it on a healing strike when Arjhan needed healing, but it wasn't needed. You get to choose to use it after you know if your attack succeeded or not.)

    So I take it that you do want to use it now?

    4. If you roll well enough on Lolth's Boon to turn the miss into the hit, don't forget, since Healing Strike has the Healing keyword it gets the Healer's Lore bonus (WIS modifier, +3).

    Lucky for you, the Quickblade's AC is 15, which makes that a HIT. Kobold takes the damage, Arjhan takes the healing. That puts Arjhan at full (12 + 9 + 12 healing added to his 10 HP, spend 2 surges).

    I think tedthehunter's healing surge value on his sheet may be wrong, but with that much healing it doesn't matter.

    Why did you need to spend the AP and split your move in two? You had enough movement to get to N4 from your initial location.

    Also, for reference, Zimelda just overwrote Arjhan's mark on the Quickblade.

    No, it would have taken her about 8 moves to get there, unless I'm just absolutely terrible at math.

    You can take diagonal moves as often as you like in 4e. Zimelda can save her action point.

    Yeah, but a diagonal move counts as 2 moves, not a single one.

    No, a diagonal move count as 1.
    They simplified the movement rule with 4e. It costed a little bit of realism, but it is a great gain in simplicity (that is my opinion).

    The only time you count double is on difficult terrain (witha few other possible exceptions)

    Yeah, that "first-diagonal-move-costs-1-then-it-costs-2" that 3.5E had was clever, but really overcomplicated things. I think I actually prefer the Chebyshev metric for distance that 4E has. (Hexes are even more realistic, but restrict your movement choice by 25%). A game that had the Taxicab metric (like Lycan used to think) would be very unfun for me as it restricts your movement choice by 50% compared to Chebyshev.

    My plan was to slide his forward so I could hit all three with a Blast 3 using an action point. With that awful attack roll, however, I think I will shift 1 square south and end my turn there.

    Mertes missed, obviously.

    How about I just give you the monster defenses:

    Each is AC/Fort/Ref/Wil
    Minion 15/12/14/12
    Quickblade 15/12/14/12
    Dragonshield 18/14/15/13
    Slinger 13/12/14/12

    but they all have effectively higher defenses right now due to being in the trees.

    Tedthehunter has until 4:35 PM EDT to post his turn or he goes on delay.

    The kobolds go before Zimelda. If her turn is not valid as a result, she can re-roll.

    Zimelda's turn is valid as originally written, so she doesn't qualify for a reroll, but if she moves as Lycan originally wrote she'll incur two unnecessary OAs. I assume you'll just skip the movement then.

    The dice roller hate me... except in the other game where I roll above 12 each time so far lol...

    Darkfire is not automatic, it needs a roll. I'll do it.

    (1d20+8)[26] vs Reflex 15

    Hit.

    Well, what I meant was that, for this particular attack, the reverse would have made two near-misses into hits. Overall, my odds of hitting are actually decent, it was just this particular attack that was made to miss .

    Well, I have been greatly ineffectual this encounter. The enemies all but ignore me, and I've done a measly net 11 damage, having used my encounter power, my encounter damage increase, and an action point.
