    Provisionally, here we see the rest of the party wandering along the trail. Top is NE here. How many mules do we have? Just Scuz (gone with Korgoth) and Spike? Thorwalt is stuck with being P for Priest until he chooses another symbol-Marn is C for Conjurer, Dardiana is W for Witch.

    Out of interest, is there anything to both the female members of the party choosing such Classical names?

    So, open stream bed straight to the opposition? Then Greor is guessing/spotting the distance and presence of difficult terrain. He might want to charge when things start moving.

    I name all my characters something that sounds nice to me, which is usually something classic. Delphi, Aria, Damien, Perelias...

    Of course, my warforged characters are named Fist, Fix, and Gem, so the pattern doesn't always hold.

    Also, I officially have no home interenet access anymore (but I'm leaving for the new job sometimes tomorrow) so I'm going to have to ASCII battlemaps. If everyone wants to choose a (colour-nospecific) ASCII symbol for themselves, that'll be sweet.

    Currently claimed are

    r=redcloaks
    a=redcloak archers
    b=redcloak boss
    m=maroons
    N=for NPC, Bethlen
    M=Mules
    I'll go with... ₩ that W. But since that might not work, W or D works fine.

    And about the name... *shrug*

    I dunno if we'll be in battle by then. Marlowe is riding the rails (funny, that - the DM is on the rails instead of the players) and needs to settle into a new place, presumably. Fun all around.

    Well, it does not matter whether they are in position or not as long as there is a surprise round and Gregor acts in it. If Gregor can delay until the surprise round happens because of any reasons other than himself that is just fine. This assumes that most of a/r are sitting on the ground and will stand up + draw weapons as their first round even if they win initiative.

    I'm not sure what anyone will think, but I've created a map of the area through google documents, copying the map that Marlowe provided.

    Here

    It will continuously be updated, for my own use, either way.

    ---

    Also, I do not have a problem moving there, but what's the order of actions?

    Well, you'll be added to the map once you enter the area. Marlowe has yet to say that you've entered, so I can't just put you in.

    -Edit-

    Also, red text is enemies. Black is ally or otherwise not an enemy, at least not a known enemy. Dark red will be a fallen (and otherwise unconscious) enemy. A dashed red person will be a dead enemy.

    I would not use any red for passive characters. Better gray for all really unconscious, stricken gray for all dead. May use darker color for temporarily disabled, like sleeping, held, etc.

    Red: Enemy
    Dark Red: Down enemy
    Black: Other
    Strike: Dead

    Dude, first rule of D&D, whenever the DM says "Are you sure?" it means, "Don't do that, you'll die/get violated/turn into a newt and not get better".

    On a different and sad note:
    Is anybody else going on holiday? I'm leaving for france on the 6th and returning the 22nd. And I just got told, contrary to what I thought, that we won't have internet there . I'm sorry for entering on a break like this, I know it's a **** move, but like I said, I didn't see it coming.
    Anyway, what's your plans for the summer?

    EDIT: Marlowe, Grath still needs to know if he can charge through the trees or if he has to move normally.

    I must have missed the question. No, sorry, you have to duck around the trees. I was going to add underbrush terrain as well, but maybe another battle. I've had to keep making trips over the past few days to sort out docs.

    Also, battle has been joined.

    I am perfectly fine with maroons doing that, did not expect that from people sitting on the ground. To make it quick:
    1. If "stand up" action counts as a "regular move" for the purpose of "draw a weapon" action or there are less than five people sitting or any of those sitting people have missile weapons in hands, throw a javelin from behind the tree.
    2. Otherwise, proceed with the charge.

    Only player characters get max HP at first level. Made some fixes according to my understanding of things:

    Augmented Celestial Badger[Rage]: HP: 8/8[10/10] AC:15 (14T, 12FF)[13 (12T)]
    BAB/G: +0/-5 [+0/-1]
    Attacks: 2 claws +6 1d2+1[+8 1d2+3], Bite +1 1d3+1[+3 1d3+3]
    Saves: +6 Fort, +5 Ref, +1 Will[+8 Fort, +5 Ref, +1 Will]
    Abilities, Low-Light Vision, Scent, Darkvision 60ft, Resistance to Acid 5, Cold 5, Electricity 5, Spell Resistance 6

    upd: Or you could actually roll its hp as 1d8+4 [...+2]
