Kobalds Round 31: Last Gasp

Two kobalds who can attack.
There are only two attacks against the party.  The kobald in 3202 attacks Htuya.  He hits for 4 damage, which stuns her.

The kobald in 3502 attacks Ahmet (who doesn't have to worry about 3701 for several seconds, and is therefore not flanked).  It misses with a 17.

It is up to Ahmet. He can take one attack against the striped kobald (-1 to hit due to the stairs) or two attacks against the other one.

I would like to be able to throw a dart at someone from here. Should I be able to, I will throw my eighth dart at targets in the following preferred order.

If I can see the one on the edge hex above (3502) , that one, otherwise if I am capable of weaving a dart through everyone to mr. checkered (3202), I'll try and help against that one. Otheriwse, I will wait for a clear target.

D20: 16 (14 + 2)
D3: 2

Lukas said...

You posted first, is this a new turn? Or did I jump the gun?

Andrej said...

Andrej takes another swing at the kobald in 3202:

to hit: 4
dmg: 6

dang

Andrej said...

Can we see more of what's beyond the stair in 3102?

Alexis said...

Lukas, you're fine. You hit the kobald in 3502; it flops forward and dies.

Andrej, you can't see what's beyond the stairs until you step to the edge (3102).

Balther will move forward and attack 3202. He hits, and does 4 damage.

Kushi moves to 3103 and throws a dagger. He rolls two natural 20s back to back, rolls minimum damage on his dagger and does 3 points.

This is exactly the amount needed to kill 3202, and the kobald dies.

Andrej said...

"Nice shot, Kushi."

Ahmet said...

I'm going to have to ignore the guy in 3502 for now (leaving him for Odval and Culf, hopefully), and drive Stripey up the stairs so I can get out of 3602.

To hit: 16
Damage: 10

Take that, Stripey!

Ahmet said...

Ah, I see 3502 is already dead. Good job, Lukas!

Ahmet said...

Crap, I just remembered I wanted to leave one alive for questioning.

Lukas said...

Always remember that at the last minute...

Alexis said...

It's done. They are all dead.

Alexis said...

Seriously.

Ahmet said...

Can I attempt mouth-to-mouth on Stripey? :)

Live, damnit! LIVE!

Lukas said...

It would explain your knowledge of relationships... or lack thereof to observe you pouncing the freshest dead monstrous enemies...

Alexis said...

Shall we start with experience?

Lukas was, of course, somewhat positioned the worst in this combat. He is only first level, and a mage to boot. Still, he managed to cause 28 damage (including the effect of his sleep spell), and took 9.

Total experience for Lukas, including 10% (which all the numbers will): 895.

Alexis said...

Andrej was held back for quite awhile, but started to make his way ahead effectively once he climbed to the pink level. Thereupon he began to clock kobalds quite efficiently. He caused 51 damage, but took only 11 (including that which was compensated for by the spell).

Andrej's total experience: 1,192

Alexis said...

Overall, Ahmet caused the most damage and took the most damage. His last two hits pushed him ahead of Andrej, who had for awhile surpassed the group. And although Ahmet can't do a thing to revive Stripey, he caused 56 damage and took a devastating 33.

Total experience for Ahmet: 1,731

Ahmet said...

Well, I'm only good at two things... giving damage and taking damage. Mission accomplished!

Ahmet said...

I believe that puts me over the top to reach Level 4 (8,001, right?).

You may now address me as Ahmet-oglu Ahmet, the Hero.

Lukas said...

I was looking forwards to seeing Ahmet break 2k, The numbers were climbing....

On another note, I am just one more fight like that away from leveling.

Alexis said...

Not even, Lukas.

Please note the next post. Putting it up now.

Ahmet said...

Yes... and we're also both one more fight like that away from death. :)

Lukas said...

Death means we took a lot of damage right? That's more XP isn't it?

Alexis said...

Ahmet, roll a d10 for hit points for your fourth level.

Add the added number (with constitution bonus) to both your maximum and your present hit points.

Alexis said...

(GCI: Death means you get NO experience from either the damage taken or caused during the fight that led up to the death. It's just a cold, heartless punishment for complete failure)

Alexis said...

The next post is up.

I can not thank you adequately for the posts on your web site. I know you'd put a lot of time and effort into them and hope you know how much I appreciate it. I hope I'll do exactly the same for someone else at some point.
