    Oh, I don't think it's unfair; I had assumed you were going with them, and nothing has really happened at the new location yet. Sorry for skipping your turn there, but after two responses of "So... is this it?" I realized maybe something more interesting should happen.

    Didn't see initiative request at first, whoops. That's what happens when you reply before reading it all 🙄

    Also Initiative (1d20+2)[15]

    The goal-probably failed- was to intimidate them into stepping down and to ask about the wrong and the right stuff on Ink.

    Yep, looks like we'll get one more round of prep/escalation/de-escalation from Stone and then I'll go. And I suspect after that we'll be in initiative order. Varak can pop in wherever.

    Rolling some for myself:

    Red Quills: (d20+2)[6]

    Nancy: (d20+0)[9]

    Orc/The Inkwell: (d20+1)[12]

    To clarify, is Varak at the same location as the players?

    No, Varak is at a different inkwell, unfortunately. I meant pop in to continue the other scene.

    Although, if you want to retcon that you're at, say, the back door of the same one coincidentally I'm open to that and can make the edit. I just didn't want to railroad you back with them after you split up.

    I'd prefer to be at two separate dens, I was just waiting on the result to my Perception check, unless I missed an update. Which is entirely possible!

    Okay, since we haven't had a post from Stone in 48 hours, I'm going to assume he doesn't have anything he wants to say or try before combat starts and make a post.

    He's up first in initiative order, so hopefully he can fit it in on his next post if he did have something. If we don't hear anything for another 24 hours, we'll move him to the bottom of the order and just continue in initiative.

    Since Kalchas and Neph tied, go in whichever order. And Varak, since you're at a second location, jump in any time.

    Also, rolling in here while I continue to try and figure out this feature *sigh*

    Reckless Attack:

    (1d20+5)[23]

    (1d20+5)[25]

    and Damage if it lands:

    (2d6+5)[10]

    Note that attacks on the leader have advantage because of this!

    Am i provoking attacks of opportunity if I start casting a one action spell? If so, can I withdraw from him, moving back straight to cast my spell?

    No, you only attract an AOO if you move out of melee without disengaging. Spellcasting is fine.

    However, if it's a spell with an ranged attack roll, it's at disadvantage in melee. In this case, it would cancel out to a straight roll.

    Also, disengaging is an action, so you'd be limited to a bonus action spell if you did

    It's not an attack roll (lol, Nephixus making an attack roll). But it is a concentration spell. I'm not completely sure the way these actions are structured away from Critical Role, haha.

    Okay, then that's fine. You can cast it with no penalty for being in melee. With a concentration spell, the only limitation is a) if you cast another concentration spell it ends b) when you take damage you have to make a check to see if you lose concentration.

    Action Economy:

    On every turn, you have an action, bonus action and movement. Your spells will say in their description if they're an action or a bonus action.

    An action is an attack, a spell, disengaging, hiding, accessing an object, making a check, or really anything you might want to do on your turn other than move. Bonus actions are always explicitly called out as bonus actions, and most characters only have a few. As a bard, you can inspire another character with Bardic Inspiration as a bonus action, or cast any spells with a casting time of one bonus action.

    I know notifications have been acting up for some of you, so just a notification that I have posted in the IC thread! Round 1 is over, back to the top of the order.

    Feel free to message me or ask for rolls here if you have an intermediate steps for your next turns.

    Question, as the woman is still prone (I think?), do I have Advantage on her? ie. Would attacking her zero out Adv & Disadv to modify the attack to a straight roll?

    No, any attack would be at Disadvantage. Without giving up too much of the mystery of Sudden Blackness, you are hearing movement to your right, and she would have had to use some of her movement to stand up in order to get there.

    Or are you ignoring that and attacking the space on the ground where she was the last time you saw her?

    A no save Blindness is pretty powerful, I'm really not sure what to do here. Back to the wall, and round house kick every thing in front of me, tell me how to do that?

    Curious though does a fist load do more damage since I've got a mitt full of gold?

    I will go ahead and tip my hand a bit here; it's not Blindness, it's a Darkness SLA. And yes, she's a Deadly encounter for a CR3 character alone, but in my defense, I didn't expect you to open the conversation by knocking her on her butt, stealing her weapon of choice and insulting her! :)

    You can put your back to the wall by moving forward one square and turning to face the other way. You can't attack all the squares at once, but you can pick one and attack at a disadvantage. You could also use your movement to grope around the porch for her. It's only six five-foot squares and two of them are marked off (you and the junkie's).

    You did successfully Intimidate her; that's why she has been sneaking and avoiding direct attack so far. You can try to Intimidate her again, but it's at a Disadvantage - diminishing returns.

    I think a Bonus Action is fair for an untrained ability check that doesn't take much time, if you want to try again to Perceive her, or make an Insight check to try and figure out how to de-escalate the situation, or anything else.

    Why do you have a mitt full of gold? You do have a d6 weapon in your hand that counts as a monk weapon.

    If my action were to concentrate on the spell, would the guy still be prone? Unsure if this is one round and I need to recast, or if I can maintain this until someone can ice him?

    Concentration is something that goes on in the background. You can take a different action without breaking concentration, as long as it's not another concentration spell.

    The spell continues until your concentration is broken, time runs out (one minute), or he makes his save.

    Gryffydd, if you want to incorporate it into your post - that hits, but once again the damage seems less than you would expect. Since you come from the far west, it might remind you of the way barbarian berserkers can shrug off mortal wounds.

    I will put in my post otherwise, but since you haven't written yet/FYI.
