South, the faster we get around a corner the better.

5 move to sewer entrance and open fire on Ember (the only target)...
They willingly will go up to the sewer entrance and stand in fire and take damage to look down into the tunnel?
The burst creates a zone of licking flames that lasts
until the end of your next turn. Each enemy that enters the
zone or starts its turn there takes 2 fire damage

How is Ember the only target?
Aren't Tegarth, Aura, Ashe and Angelus in adjacent squares? The cops don't see them?

Only clear target. The others are around 2 corners because of the 12' vertical tunnel.

Some of them will, of course. You backed off 2/3 of them for now, but they are in full riot gear from head to toe and they are a well trained crack terror unit. (Those 2/3 do have an action readied...)

They're going to run into a zone of fire and take auto damage? It's not a lot of damage, but they don't know how much until the enter...

Plus they just saw the scout move up there and boom as far as they know set off a trap.
Why would 5 more cops move up there and possibly set off another trap.
These are not stupid monsters, these are people with families and lives, not suicidal.

I thought SOP for police is to wait if they think there are traps in the area. Guess these cops have Orc Sergeants or something.

Give me a break. It did slow down most of the baddies, every PC has risked some damage in pursuit of a monster, and none of you are Orcs. Please... These cops think they're in pursuit of occultist mass murderers. They think you murdered several dozen people just for the fun of it, (or for some 'black magic' ritual). They are willing to take some risks to apprehend you.

Top of the order...

Hmm, looks like Blade is going north...

On Angelus' turn:
Minor: take out healing potion (I had 4 and I think this is the last one...)

Move: use Eternal Mountan movement technique
gain resist all 5 and shift 2 N

Standard: move 6N

So you really think a guy making 40k a year would be willing to basically run through a mine field to apprehend someone?
Cops won't go into a house when some one possibly has a gun. Cops won't even go into a house alone during a domestic dispute. Cops waited outside a house for 5-hours once and the suspect wasn't even inside. These are from actual news reports and procedure manuals.

So don't try to tell me they would charge through a suspected trap area, where they actually saw a big explosion go off, and saw one of their own injured.

Anecdotal. I can cite plenty of examples of blindly following pretty crazy orders too, and on top of that, this is D&D, not the real world. They have mid 40s in hit points. Let's remember that these guys going into the line of fire of a gun (etc) is NOT as dangerous as it would be for a real cop in the real world. And the cop they saw took the full blast of the flame, not just the lingering after flames, & he was able to get up & run away (which he did... he was NOT suicidal) ...and that was after he was sliced by an animated broadsword. Yes, that almost killed him (in total), but the rest have every reason to suspect the after flames is not as dangerous as the initial blast. On top of that, it DID change their approach...

Top of the order, Aura's turn...

I assume she would be unconscious but does she have to make death rolls?

Damn your D&D logic. Smile

Yep, D&D logic, any guy can shoot in the head with a gun and have no fear of dying. Diffinitely not real life.

In 3.5, no death rolls and auto gets up in 20 rounds, but I'm pretty sure in 4.0 0 is the same as -x.

Well any guy with at least a few levels, anyway. But that's what makes the battles more fun. Bradly would never enter any of the situations that Camella Ann, Hayden, Jet Li (especially), etc look forward to!...

Dying
A dying creature is unconscious and must make death saving throws. Monsters normally die when they drop to 0 hit points, so they suffer this condition only in exceptional situations.

Sorry, didn't notice Ember got knocked out...

I may need to revise my action after Aura and Ashe go.

View user profile

471 Re: Slayer HQ (Giles' house) on Fri Aug 05, 2011 12:44 pm

Ashe has a few potions but needs to stand as his move action.

Free: We need to kill the lights. I'm slowing everyone down cause I'm hurt, if you can take care of Ember I will get as far south as I can.


Move: Stand
Minor: Pull potion
Standard: Run 8 north and hide as part of the move action.

Note: I said south to hopefully throw them off at least a bit. Maybe split their party.

View user profile

472 Re: Slayer HQ (Giles' house) on Fri Aug 05, 2011 3:38 pm

Free: Upon regaining consciousness, "I hate succubi."

Move: Stand in an open square not directly under the ladder.

Aura looks around to get a grasp on the situation. "Well this is officially the worst place I've ever woken up". After seeing Ember down, and hearing the troops and flames above, "We are gonna need something big to stop them, or at least slow them down enough to get out of here."

Standard: Perception check (or maybe dungeoneering?) Aura looks around the sewer to find the utility lines running through it, specifically the gas line.

Perception skill is 16. Dungeoneering skill is 9.

If check is successful and she finds it, free action to point at it and say, "We need to hack a hole in this pipe, then run. Fast."


OOC: I think you can see where this is going. Try to focus on getting everyone up and running.

I think you already are since Ember was the only one they could shoot.

Yeah, but I can't make heads or tails of the map anymore so I don't know if someone was standing over me or not, and since Ember is down that does mean I could stand in her square, which I'd rather not do.

Let's resolve this in a couple hours. Angelus is standing in your square, so to stand you'd have to take a free shift N into Ember's square (which is legal since prone), or S.
