[D&D4e] OOC - Return of the Burning Plague

Spoiler:

What the hell is this, Legoman?

This is a 4th Edition playtest - the module was taken from Enworld, based on the DDXP information. (No peeking!)

So, combat heavy?

Very. There might be some role-playing later after this first playtest and after the rules proper for 4e are out - but consider this a one-shot for now. That doesn't mean you can't be colorful with your character!

How many can play?

4-6. The following characters are up for grabs:

Erais, Male Human Cleric of Amaunator
Kathra, Female Dwarven Fighter // Probably mightyspacepope
Corrin, Male Halfling Paladin of Tymora
Tira, Female Half-Elf Warlock // Probablt lzrmcdougal
Skamos, Male Tiefling Wizard // Probably Tom Whitbrook
Riardon, Male Eldarin Ranger

Post quickly.

How are you going to be running this?

I don't honestly care how you do your dice rolls. Don't cheat, it's lame.

On your turn, take all your actions. I'll post the vital stats for the enemies so you can write in their reactions as you pick them off. If you have an immediate action that your character can use, write down a set of conditions that would cause you to want to activate it. I'll read those and trigger it for your best interest.

Great, when do we start.

As soon as we have people together.

    I'd be down for this, as long as you don't mind the fact that I'd primarily post after work (11ish PM Eastern time). I'd mostly be interested in playing the Dwarven fighter.

    IC Thread up. delroland, it's Corrin's action.

    Lego, do those squares with the red border grant cover, or are they an obstacle, or something like that?

    No, sorry, that was just the last tile I had down and I forgot to deselect it before I took the screenshot from the dungeon tile website. It's just normal difficult terrain, like the rest of the rubble squares.

    Kobolds went, Corrin took 9 from Skirmisher's thrust.

    Be advised now guys, that shifting is a 5 foot move action, and any other sort of movement provokes an AoO. Just making sure you guys know for future reference.

    Map updated, you might have to refresh the page.

    You can all now go in whatever order you happen to post. If your character has the capacity for any immediate actions, post conditions for taking those actions.

    Map updated after shoe's action, refresh if you see > 2 minons on the field.

    Shoe, I was all like 'man, he's boxed in on the stairs, how is he going to...'

    'oh'

    That's the kind of thing I was hoping would happen, and makes me all the more pissed off at my IRL players for being retarded and acting like they have their feet in blocks on concrete.

    Dude, this was such a good idea.

    I mean, I'm actually stoked about playing an elf-type guy again.

    Plus, I've always loved ranger-y characters... and the Ranger abilities Riardon has are sweet!

    I get a +2 to AC versus AoO's, just FYI.

    Also, can you shift into difficult terrain?

    Whoops, good to know.

    Yes, you can shift into difficult terrain.

    @Lardalish: Ask away good man!

    Guys if this combat takes you more than a round I'll be very upset with you all.

    I'm guessing this will take three rounds, simply because I missed round one and we have 54 hit points to beat down even after dropping the minions. Unless someone crits with a 2[W] attack.

    noobs then. all of you :D

    Just wait until both of your strikers come to bear though, the ranger is dropping 1d10 + 1d8 + 4, and the warlock nearly as much.

    Especially if Corrin uses his strike that gives the ranger +2 tohit, you can make short work of these fools.

    Yeah, next round Riardon'll probably make on of those skirmishers his "quarry" and start ruining its day.

    I have a lot going on in my life right now, to the point that I am not often home and when I am, I do not have the time or energy to make decent posts.

    Additionally, it's my personal opinion that RPG systems designed originally to be played tabletop are ill-suited for PBP and while I have tried to continue on in spite of that, it is nonetheless something I have come to dislike.

    Also lego, I provoked an AoO on purpose to try and get my Fox's Cunning off this round on that skirmisher in an attempt to put an end to the dirty little bastard.

    I'm also banking on that +3 AC bonus from the Paladin stacking with my +2 AC against AoO's (Defensive Mobility) giving me an AC of 22 vs. an AoO by the skirmisher.

    Edit: I love 4e Rangers.

    You don't get the +3 - Corrin gave it to himself.

    It's OK, the kobold rolled a '6'

    You take your Fox's Cunning, I've stepped you away, but you rolled a '3.'

    The rest of yous, have at. This bugger is at 1 HP.

    I was using the roll that I made on it before... which was a 16 (hit) for 12 damage after adding in that extra d8.

    Not that it matters, being that the fight is almost over anyways, but I gave the +3 AC to Riardron:
