    After the third round, I'll require another group stealth check to remain unnoticed.

    Looks like I'm first. Do we get a surprise round? That may change what I do.

    The scouting is done merely in the next room, at the moment.
    There is indeed a surprise round.

    Ok how are we handling combat and positioning? I've seen good results with a spreadsheet in Google Docs that we can all edit so we can handle forced movement on our own.

    I'm going to toss some map images on here and apply grid coordinates to the spaces between the lines so we can navigate the board and understand the exact results of forced movement. A Google spreadsheet could work, but I would prefer to give you some art to go along with the idea.

    Yep, ditto that.

    I'm practicality-oriented in my gaming, and visual artwork rarely has any impact on me. So I love the googledoc option. I need to remember that not everybody feels the same. Some folks would be disappointed by a bland document, maybe less interested in playing.

    My wife's a visual artist. I really ought to already have this down.

    Just for myself, if I can't view representations that depict what I need to imagine with around 25% (or higher) visual accuracy, my head spins. I can't keep up with a spreadsheet using letters and numbers. Even in the font made for dyslexic people, Excel and Google Sheets hurt my brain.
    Fortunately, I haven't needed to use them in a professional setting yet.

    Should have the map up by Thursday night. Sorry for keeping you all waiting, but I decided to go ahead and do every room I had previously statted out, and worked back to front. I'm recreating some old official maps though, so if I find my copies of them somewhere I might just scan them for use in this game.
    Edit: Make that Saturday night. Sorry again!

    Oh man, I'd be hurting bad without my googledocs at work. Guess that's yet another way fortune favors me, not having that kind of trouble. I keep trying to count my blessings but I lose count 'cuz it's so high.

    Still working on it, and I'll PM everybody once I get the map working.
    Just wanted to let everyone know I'm not ghosting or anything. I started a new job today as a delivery driver for a local mattress store.

    Yep, especially when you deliver from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

    Kinda. They get away with not paying overtime by calling our weekly check "base pay" and then giving us "commission" in the form of a one-time bonus each month of $20 per bed frame set up.
    On the good side, they have no problem with us grabbing overtime when we want it (or not at all if we don't). On the bad side, I have yet to see anyone set up a bed frame in the time since I started deliveries.

    STILL RUNNING THIS.
    I need a little help, because my brain isn't working with Excel.
    I gave up on the graphic designs I've been working on because they were too ambitious and I just realized recently that it's been forever since I started working on them.
    Can anyone make a 4x4 room with a 10 ft. wide doorway right in the middle of the eastern side? Then connected to that is a 6x10 room with the southwestern 2x5 section blocked off by a wall. There are two doors in this room: one on the western side at the second and third tiles from the north end, and one on the eastern side at the third and fourth tiles from the north end.
    Oh, and just to clarify, I do the numbers as Horizontal x Vertical... Not sure if that's the common way or not.

    You should ask Felhammer for their google sheet they use for 4e. It can act as a map and keep track of your players' stats.

    Does this look right? Wasn't sure where on the second room the first one touched it -- I was assuming at room2's western door.

    Recap: surprise round, Briespen and Jin start us off. @GM, am I right in assuming that PCs within one grouping can go in whichever order they like? If so, can we all go whenever in the surprise round? I won't have Kiresh act til someone in the scout group jumps in anyway, since he has no IC way to know we're in Combat Time. But it's good to know the guidelines.
    Briespen -- 31
