    Poor Valette, she's so uncomfortably sincere. If this were high school she'd have an angsty blog and the rest of the party would get together and do dramatic readings of it.

    I also like how Tharin kind of talks like a cowboy.

    Valette's a bit of a whiner.

    Waaaahhhhh no one likes me, waaah I have no friends.

    Though to be fair she was whipped, abandoned by her friends, and fled home to have her father and brother burned alive, but that's no reason to be such a sourpuss!

    Unless anyone plans on running, just let me know where you want to set-up for the arrival of IMPENDING DANGER!

    Hey everybody. James and I have been talking about perhaps getting together and playing this game in person sometimes. Would anyone be up for it?

    Valette is at Z66, and in person sounds fun! You get so much more done; if a bit less roleplaying.

    Switched Whiskey and Arf around so that Thårin can be at the front. Details in my spoiler.

    I'm going to be out until late-ish tonight so if the dude comes up to me I attack. Here are my rolls:

    Attack roll: (1d20+3)[7]
    If it works, damage roll: (1d6+1)[5] and (1d4+1)[2]

    Sorry I'm in a bit of a rush I hope that's right

    this thing is blind and uses hearing to navigate, right? if I cast Ghost Sound, will it interfere with it's spatial orientation ability the same way it would if I casted Silence? And do spells always work or would I have to roll for it?

    @Shakedown
    I think the whole spacial disorientation thing is James' call... And no, you have no chance to fail at casting a spell unless
    A) you're wearing a type of armour that is heavier than what your class allows.
    B) You're trying to cast a spell in the middle of melee combat, in which case whoever threatens you gets an attack of opportunity and you must make a concentration check in order to finish casting the spell.

    I presume you're not wearing full plate armour and you're not in combat yet. Even if you were, you could always take a five foot step and then cast a spell.

    He's probably still ok... He has maybe 13 HP? (btw Andrew, if you just want to go with that median figure for Arf's official HP, that's cool by me).

    Instead of attack rolls we should all just do move silently checks. We might die to attacks of opportunity, but some of us might not!

    Also Nic, I agree with the live session. We could get some Mountain Dew and Doritos and do this up right.

    Darn it James, after all the effort I went to, to make myself on par with the group, and you throw us against an unbalanced encounter!

    I want my 90 damage swift actions please.

    Also actually been meaning to mention this; I don't want to use Scribe Scroll because that's an XP cost, and we're not using XP based leveling, so is it okay if I swap that out (Using the rules in Unearthed Arcana) for a different feat? I would've done it at character creation but I didn't think.

    OR alternatively can I not have to pay an XP cost when I scribe scrolls?

    Also Sam is flanking, so if he was using melee he'd be getting sneak attack damage additionally. I'm not sure how it works with using a bow in close quarters, looking things up atm.

    Yeah can't find anything.. but maybe the creature hasn't heard him and he gets sneak attack anyways? Pleeaaaaaaaase.

    EDIT: Nope, blindsight.

    Just make sure to stay in attacking range! On my turn it's a will save or they provoke attacks of opportunity from everyone.

    Wow, these grimlocks are rolling crazy well.

    But you guys are PCs. You're smart, you'll figure something creative out.

    If anyone wants to tweak their characters a little bit, it's early enough in the game that I'd be open to it. Nic, I know that you were saying you might be interested in doing this.

    I've been thinking about how to handle XP... Part of me is also tempted to use it since it's not so hard to just have an engine crunch the numbers for me. Or else I would just do an approximates version with delayed levelling for those who use XP-burning skills/feats.

    Did the first grimlock fall on the stairs and activate the trap :D :D :D???

    Hopefully the roll Nic made earlier today will do some damage because I am scared for us! It would be a shame if we all died before the planned Doritos/Mountain Dew night.

    Also ghost sound will totally work, hurray!

    Yeah, it's not flanking with a ranged weapon.

    Grimlock didn't fall on stairs, sorry.

    Thanks for the reminder about Thårin's pre-roll, totally forgot about that. That roll doesn't hit, but... it was also rolled incorrectly. The roll was right for a single attack, but since you're rolling for both weapons, you make 2 attack rolls (with a slightly lower modifier for each). So it shall have to be re-done!

    [roll]1d20+1[/roll]
    [roll]1d20+1[/roll]

    Only +1? Even with +str and +2 from flanking? (-2 from two weapons)

    Realized after I rolled that I forgot flanking bonus (for the dogs too). Makes no difference to any of the results so far, though. But yeah, +2 flanking bonuses all around to attack rolls.

    When we play in person, I'm stealing everyone's character sheets and oggling them.

    Also I'm switching out Scribe Scroll, and replacing it with Improved Initiative.

    It's a pretty limited selection of what you can trade Scribe Scroll for, lol. It's not 'whatever you want! Yayyyy!!!"

    Concentration is the most important skill for spellcasters! You didn't know you were a spellcaster when picking skills, not too late to move some points around mebbe?
