    Zombulian, congrats on finishing college! Mind if I ask what your major was (just curious)?

    And Saintheart, everything sounds good - the positioning works out for me. The only question I have, really, is regarding what happens if Dergosh casts Bless at the start of combat - would the buckwagon block line of effect for that? (It'll determine how many of us can get caught within the radius - I already know that Ruk and Gakan won't be inside the area of effect for it, being in the storehouse, and I don't think he'd have line of effect to Three, so it's really just a question of whether there'd be line of effect to Kuros or not.)

    And Almonds, I have made sure to perform the proper rites to seek RNGesus's blessing on your behalf. Except for the ritual sacrifice of a d20, anyway - I don't have enough of those to sacrifice.

    Yup, here's hoping RNGesus is feeling kind today.
    Would you mind if I wrote out Svetlana bringing the firewood? There wouldn't be any dialogue or anything like that, it's just to condense the scroll making from three posts (Three goes outside->Svetlana gets wood, fire is lit->Three attempts to scribe) to one.
    Also, will there be posts after everyone gets up, but before the fight? If not, then Three casts Personal Weapon Augmentation on her crossbow to turn it into a Bane (Humanoid, Human) when the bandits are a couple of minutes away. It takes one minute to cast, so I'm mentioning it now.
    (1) Yep, no problem with Svetlana bringing the firewood.

    (2) (Also for everyone): I'm happy to do a writeup incorporating people's preparations without the need to provide an IC post. Just specify it here OOC and I'll include it. Might move us a bit quicker to the start of the fight.

    The buckwagon won't block line of effect; it's not a solid barrier that way, the spell can sneak through underneath or through the wheel spokes.
    Er...yeah.

    And ritual sacrifice? In my neck of the woods the ritual was to buy a big bunch of d20s and preroll all the 1s out of them. I knew one guy who did that ritual another way, too: he had a big bunch of dice and rolled enough of them so that eventually the only statistical result the dice "could" next roll was a 20. He then built a small box with foam padding and set the dice in place so it couldn't roll. If there came a moment where a critical was necessary, he'd pull out the box and take one of those prerolled dice.

    I don't think this ever actually worked.

    The only other last minute preparation I can think of for Three is giving Oleg a weapon, in case the situation goes south and he needs to defend himself. Three's willing to let him have a dagger, the quarterstaff, or the longspear, assuming he knows how to use any of them. If she's on the wall, she probably won't need whatever he picks anyway.

    EDIT: My IC post should say that Three had sixty-three silver remaining, not sixty-two. I forgot to account for one she had in her inventory. I would edit that post instead, but I don't know if posts with rolls in them can be changed without deleting the rolls or something like that.

    Korlann doesn't have much in the way of preparation, really - just his normal routine (wake up, shape his soulmeld and invest essentia).

    I'll give it 24 more hours to allow everyone else to chime in, then we'll get going.

    EDIT: Also, Ruk and Gakan are going to have to make Hide checks. But the good news is that they can take 20 on these rolls, since they can be very unhurried about it and they're not under threat when they make the check. There isn't a penalty for failure as such other than setting a low Spot DC, therefore they can go with it. Gakan also gets a +2 from the fact his furry exterior helps him blend in with the pelts among the trade goods.

    EDIT THE SECOND: Also also, minor footnote that spellcasting with verbal components carries a Listen check of 0; distance and distraction are then minuses to that.

    And a wonderful little character moment, I hope to see lots more of that!

    EDIT: Also made some minor changes to the opening post acknowledging that people have all their spells and other abilities ready to go when the fight starts. If I missed anyone or anything, please let me know. Have fun and try not to die.

    Wanna know what's crazy. Dergosh's Bless actually reaches Kuros if Dergosh moves to O12 and casts it there. Woo buffs! Now I just need to close the gate quickly and me and Three will be free to join the fight.

    EDIT: Come on str check

    Dang I wish I could have saved some of my luck for kjel! Crits don't do me no good, I've got no Str mod and my main weapon is a d3!
    Saintheart are we ruling that crits are just double damage or should I roll again?

    I'd say roll again.

    EDIT: Although combining the damage from yours and kjel's hit, that's enough to kill that bandit.

    Saint, that second attack of mine on the bowman wasn't actually a crit. It was a modified 20, not a natural 20. The perils of the forum dice feature only showing the modified total. That said, not sure if you want to edit things or just roll with it as-is...

    Ooops!

    Let's just roll with it as is. I'm sure we would've got to this point eventually anyway. :)

    EDIT: Not to mention that with crits generally, I reconsidered - let's just double the result, not make you roll twice.

    So for exp does that mean we get 422xp each total? You said we each get 256 but then go on to list the bandit second in command and the horses separately.

    Man what. I've played this game for almost a decade and I've never seen this table: http://www.d20srd.org/srd/xp.htm
    I was just looking up XP per level because my home group never used it and I stumble across the most useful table ever??
