    26 vs. Reflex is sadly not a hit.

    Great. I assumed that massive beasts traditionally very intelligent with metallic skin would have reflex as their lowest defence. If I was wrong, we should try Will next (Medinah's speciality). But I fear I was right, which means that if an augmented 8 doesn't hit their lowest defence, we're going to have a hard time hitting in general. Oh, well. At least it'll grant CA for a while. Let's make the best of it.

    Yes this is what I mean. Height is always from the bottom of the creature's space.

    I dont have access to character sheets right now. Can you guys tell me who prefer to be in melee and who prefer to be in range (I might rearrange the battlefeild a little on my turn).

    Also, who got a good Melee basic attack?

    Amirah is ranged when in humanoid form (which she is, right now) and melee when in swarm form, but even in swarm she likes to charge. So as a rule of thumb keep enemies away from her unless she has one surrounded.

    Medinah can tank at melee or ranged, but her damage output is slightly better with Eldritch Strike (her MBA) as long as the target is cursed: 1d8 +2d6 +14 psychic damage, slide 1 and a -4 penalty to attack rolls. Kihtsah's MBA is also strong vs. his oath of enmity target.

    Oh, that reminds me. Amirah's swarm form MBA targets Reflex, and when she has CA it gets +1d10 damage (in both shapes, but her chance of landing an MBA in humanoid form is remote - she carries no weapons and has negative strength). I forgot the extra damage in my post, but it turns out she wouldn't have been able to use it anyway.

    So, if she is in her swarm form, using her for MBAs is fine (charging just make it better, with extra to hit and damage)

    We'll be working on a "Delay/Assumed Action" system for individual initiative; each player has roughly 24 hours after the previous player's post to put up their turn, or I will either a) make them "delay" their turn, falling down the initiative order until the player posts or b) perform a default action based on a simple preset guideline (such as "Use At-Will 1 on most accessible target, use Encounter 3 if at least 3 targets and no allies can be targeted." or something similar). Please post which system you want your character run under and, if the latter, give me a simple "default routine" I can perform for you if you miss a post.

    For the time being, I am going to be more generous with the turn timer, until everyone's told me what system they personally want me to use for their character. It is NP's turn.

    My default actions would be to place an enemy into Figment's Aura, and then charge if possible and MBA it if not. If I have a move action to spare, shift one to get the boots effect activated.

    Hopefully it won't come up, but my preference for Medinah is to Eldritch Strike a cursed target within melee range (charging if permissible), Eyes of the Vestige if not, with preference for a bloodied opponent marked by Rahman or unmarked--it's best if she stays away from her marked target. Also, if she starts her turn bloodied, she would first use Janissary Zeal with her Amulet of Life, then Warforged Resilience, Second Wind (with an AP if possible). Thanks for letting us do this, I hope that's not too many if/then statements.

    Same for me. Hopefully I will be able to play my turns in time (or tell you in advance what my turn will be). I'd prefer to go on delay if my 24 hours come up.

    I know my reply rate during week-ends isnt very good, but I'll do my best during combat to come up with post (or at least give Shadow some instructions if I know I wont be able to post). With a few rare exceptions (thatr I'll warn you about), I usually try to read the post each days (even if I dont always take time/have time to reply).

    Shadow_elf : I have aquesiton about healing rain power (from Half-Marid).
    I get I must not be bloodied to ba able to use it. But after I get bloodied, does the aura ends whebn I get bloodied or does it last? And if it ends, will it start again when I am not bloodied anymore?

    Can you post the power's wording of the aura's conditionals?

    It is from HOZ setting, the racial power.
    That is why I ask Shadow_elf spécificaly as he is one of the creator . Shadow should know how it is intended to work I guess :).

    Healing Rain (encounter power)
    •You can channel your life energy into elemental water, which you can use to rejuvenate yourself and your allies
    •Encounter * Aura, Healing
    •Minor Action Personal
    •Effect: Spend a healing surge. In addition to regaining hit points, you gain an aura of healing rain out to two squares. At the end of each of your turns, each ally in the aura gains 5 temporary hit points. Increase to 10 temporary hit points at level 11, and to 15 temporary hit points at level 21. The aura lasts until you are bloodied.
    •Special: You cannot use this power if you are bloodied.

    I'm afraid that the power is quite clear: the moment you are bloodied, the aura ends.

    Sorry.

    Edit: Good grief, that feels overpowered compared to most racial powers...

    Not a prob. "The aura lasts until you are bloodied" is quite clear - it ends when you are bloodied. It won't come back if you go back up above bloodied.

    Shielding swordmage. Still need to be elsewhere to trigger it, but Rahman's also got decent AC and all that jazz, so it's probably not best to scoot him out of the way.

    CA cube is J17-L19, one square above the ground, going up three squares.

    I suspect the dragon will attempt to leave, so if there was a way to keep it there (hint hint Medinah), it would be nice. I can sick a puppy on him and prone him next turn, if I roll better than this turn, which might lock him in place. We certainly don't want him taking flight if we can help it.

    I might actually prone him myself.

    While we dont know yet, I assume a 3rd dragon will come out to attack... my guess is that he is in M12 or J6 area (that is where I would had placed it for an efficient surrounding ambush).

    If he comes is in range, I might first AP and Burst on the 3, possibly teleport some of you adjacent to them so you are in melee range and get a bonus on your attacks, then use my regular action with an other power that will prone ID3 and give you all your attack chance to prone enemies for one round.

    Of course, that is all assuming I manage to hit... lol.

    Trivia: I think the only time I've actually hit with silverlight strike is when SHadow_Elf used it for me.

    Also, Shadow_Elf, it'd be great DM trolling sometime if we fight three things, and they're labeled Thing 2,3, and 5.
