    Sorry about the wait. I've been trying to post for a while, but the servers were busy. On the plus side, I might actually get to attack next turn! Oh joy!

    I've noticed a fair few server problems when I try to post too.

    Solon eyerape attack:
    Blinding Flare (immediate interrupt, when first bloodied and again when reduced to 0 hp) * Radiant
    Close Burst 5; targets enemies; blind creatures are immune; +6 vs. Fortitude; 3d6+4 radiant damage and the target is blinded (save ends)

    Relevant defense:

    Free Action: Inflict Blindness on yourself until SOYNT
    BLINDED
    ✦ You grant combat advantage.
    ✦ You can’t see any target (your targets have total concealment).
    ✦ You take a –10 penalty to Perception checks.
    ✦ You can’t flank an enemy.

    For anyone going towards the top floor, this is how it looks like:

    So Turanos can just edit his post accordingly.

    Thanks for moving in front of me Turanos :) I think otherwise I was about to get a beating...

    Ok, so myself and Dorn are going after the elf, and we've got Traorin and Summer downstairs on the Solon. So how should the rest of the party disperse? I think we might need some more meat upstairs, but another striker couldn't hurt (although not sure if Titania has anything she can use inside without getting blasted)

    Well, if Titania can talk some sense into that elf in calling off the Solons I'd get behind that plan.

    I'm going to try and Diplomatize the elf on my turn...but failing that, I'd say just beat him senseless Turanos

    It doesn't seem as though he's open to being diplomatized. Maybe we should beat him senseless then try and diplomatize him. People are generally much more cooperative when they're being held by their feet off a third story balcony.

    Yeah, I was wondering if I spent a standard to make an official Diplomacy check, if I could sway him to at least chill out for a few seconds so we can discuss this without violence.

    But, if everyone else thinks we should just brain him, then that's what we should do :)

    I don't know. I can't really do much damage unless I disarm that anti-magic trap on this floor, although disarming it would take quite a while so I'd probably be better off just using my sword and flanking with Dorn (at least he'd get +2 to his attacks too.)

    Post coming in soon.

    In the meantime, Torrent bloodied the Solon, then closed her eyes.

    The solon (aura included) will deal 13 radiant damage.

    I take it the rest of you guys will close your eyes?

    Just wanted to let you all know that I'm leaving the country today, for a little over a week. I'm hoping to have regular enough Internet to continue to post at least once every day or two, but I won't know if that'll be the case until I'm there. If you're all waiting on me for longer than that span feel free to assume I go along with whatever the party is doing at the time/just roll things for me.

    I'll try to let you know once I'm there what the situation will be.

    Hey Turanos, are you still around to post your turn for this round, or do you want one of us to take it for you? If we're going to take it, I recommend someone other than me. My die rolling in this encounter has been nothing short of epic frustration.

    I should be able to post every day or two after all, so yeah I'll handle my turn now. It's just probably going to take me a little while to write because I don't have all my material to hand and this connection is slow as hell.

    I've been looking at your stuff, if you have a question, just ask. :)
    The relevant info I gathered:
    Open the Gate of Battle (E): Dex v Ref (1d20 +5 (dex) +3 (proficiency) vs 17) - 2d10+DEX(5) damage, 1d10 extra if the target was at full HP (he's at full HP).
    Stone Fist Flurry of Blows (At Will): Add 6 dmg
    Furious Assault (E): When you hit with an attack you do 1[W] extra damage if it's a weapon attack or 1d8 extra otherwise.

    I think those numbers are correct.

    Edit: Wow, nice rolls. :)

    If the intelligence is still inside the box and he was just using us to get it maybe we could strike a deal. If the intelligence is duplicatable then we could both take a copy.

    Do I get a proficiency bonus on my rolls for my powers? Isn't that only for weapon attacks?

    Regarding the box, it really does seem like this is all a massive misunderstanding that might be fixable with some smart words and decent diplomacy rolls. Sadly Dorn doesn't have much in the way of charisma.

    The old CB doesn't add your weapon proficiency into the attack (only your Ki Focus Implement).

    So yeah, it should just be on normal weapon attacks, not on powers that have the Implement Keyword.

    True, I think I'll give diplomacy a shot when my turn comes around and see if we can't work out a deal that involves us not having to kill this guy and the solon. I mean that one solon down there, he's kind of a prick, flashing his lights in your eyes and all. But the other one? I kinda liked him. :)

    I'll wait for you to post, then I'll assist with a Diplomacy check as my standard action, to try and bump you up some if necessary.

    Well, Areneth's point of view is that if we're going to try and talk, we should do so without all the pointy bits and pain. If we're going to do the pointy bits and pain, then we should do it right, and just crush him. His fault for not listening to reason :)

    Ugh, able to shake off the daze, but only to do crappy attack rolls and wasting a perfectly good action point. At least I'm keeping the thing focused on me and not Torrent or our fearless leader (I shall protect your hat with my life good sir!).

    I might need some healing from Torrent if I get hit again though.

    Good work, Traorin! Don't worry about the attack rolls, it's probably just the building's security system. Weren't you going to disable that, Dorn?...Dorn? :P

    I'm waiting to post until photobucket decides to put the map back up. I don't really know where everything is otherwise :P

    EDIT: K, if photobucket doesn't update in the next half hour I'm just using my "have someone else attack for you" power and calling it a round. No sense in holding everyone else up.

    Well things were changing floors quite fast, and then Dorn got a bit angry after being smacked in the face quite hard, but he's feeling better now... If we can't talk this guy down I'll probably go back to making Thievery checks, if I know where the control panel is on this floor (it was usually at the bottom of the stairs up, wasn't it, this floor doesn't have any stairs up).

    Requiring 4 successes while in combat is rough. Probably need 2 or 4 people all working on it if we're serious about getting it disarmed.

    It'll be at the top of the stairs, somewhere nearby where Areneth is standing.

    Will also post up once Photobucket's back up and online.

    Also @BP: Your commander's strike power is considered a melee power (even has the melee weapon keyword on it), so you'll have to stand adjacent to the solon.
    Possible locations for you to move: F4, F5, F6
