Ongoing Games (In-Character)Play-by-post games are going on in this forum as we speak (well, read). All threads on this board are actual games, so please, only post on a thread if you are a player of that game.
You see before you a creature of imposing might. Feathered wings sprout from his back, and he wears impressive looking plate mail in the oriental style, complete with Oni Mask in the shape of some oriental demon. His armor is spiked, and shaped to resemble an oriental Oni, fearsome and lethal. He bears the traditional Daisho of Katana and Wakizashi, still sheathed.
He begins by flying straight up 30' to get a more commanding view of his surroundings and to get out of immediate reach.
As the attack breaks your Hide, Takahashi moves to E11, and down to 25'. Then, as a Standard Action, uses Intimidate to Demoralize, using Mass Staredown to affect every opponent within 30' of me. (1d20+34).
Your defense is (1d20 + character level or Hit Dice + targetís Wisdom bonus [if any] + targetís modifiers on saves against fear. Thanks to his feat Imperious Command, if you fail this check, you are Cowering for your next round, then Shaken for the round thereafter. The ToS playtest states that this is NOT a mind-affecting ability.
As a Move Action, Takahashi lands gracefully next to his opponent, within melee range.
As a free action, he pulls his Wakizashi (Quick Draw) and utters
"You are not a worthy enough foe for my Katana to drink of your lifeblood. Die, then, like the commoner you are!"
He uses his Swift action to gain a Move Action from his Belt of Battle. He uses this Move Action to Demoralize (his armor enchantment allows him to demoralize on a move action). (1d20+34)
He then uses his Standard Action to make an attack with his Wakizashi
At this point, I think the match is pretty well over. Your character cannot beat my roll, even if he rolls a 20 and I roll a 1 to not be Shaken. Every round, he will Demoralize as a move action, then attack with his standard action. Does your character have any possible way out of this combo?
