Tower Crown Round 8 - Help for the Enemy


The party can see that there is one fellow, the leader (Mr. Orange) who has leapt onto the rear of the machine; the others, who are all colored brown, can be told apart by their hands - these are Yellowhand, Pinkhand, Bluehand and Greenhand, for future reference.

At this time, Andrej's spell and Lukas's spell are both cast, and can be discharged any time.  Ahmet is in melee with Mr. Yellow; Janos may take whatever action he wishes ... but he will need to wait until Andrej or Lukas discharge their spells before entering the same hex as them (chance of ruining the spell otherwise, as neither caster would expect Janos to be there) - so Janos would lose one movement by waiting, presuming Andrej and Lukas do NOT wait before discharging (takes them each one move to do so).

Please make your move.

The odds aren't in our favor, but at least we got them to stop firing the stinger...

Ahmet cleaves at Mr. Yellow.

To hit: 9
Damage: 7

Andrej said...

Alexis, the spell description states that hold person has a range of 60' and may affect up to three creatures... do I simply choose three of the enemies within the stated range?

If, so Andrej chooses mister yellow, mister orange and mister red. They are allowed a save vs. spell to negate. Duration will be eight rounds.

Andrej then steps forward into hex 0605.

Lukas said...

Lukas considers for a moment whether or not introducing a magic missile to the mechanism might cause some havoc to the machine then discharges the magic missile at the orange fellow in 404 should he be visible.

Otherwise he'll discharge on any other visible opponent on that side followed by 703.

Provided he can, he will begin casting push, if he cannot, he will stay put.

(OOC: The fact I get internal amusement from three separate parts of that action is to be noted.)

Andrej said...

If all goes well Ahmet I recomeend that you finish off mr. green then work your way around the mechanism counter-clockwise if you can. The rest of us should focus on the newcomers.

Alexis said...

Andrej,

One of the nice things about the spell is you get to choose up to three. Take note, enemies get a saving throw: normal if against 3 people, -1 to their save vs. 2 people, -2 to the save of one person.

Ahmet,

Attack misses.

Lukas,

While you can travel 1 movement while casting a spell, it takes the whole round to cast; thus, you cannot discharge and cast in the same round. You can attack the orange fellow; magic missile automatically hits.

I need a d4+1 for damage.

Lukas said...

Apologies, I knew I forgot something.

1d4+1: 5

Alexis said...

I'm sorry, Andrej; I just want to confirm you do mean to hit all three with it - yellow, orange and red.

Alexis said...

Nicely done, Lukas!

Mr. Orange is stunned; he makes his dexterity check and manages to fall to his knees, and not fall off the platform.

Andrej said...

hmmm... I do intend to hit all three.

Is it possible to swap mr. orange for mr. green given Lukas's successful magic missile?

If so, I do that. If not, the three previously identified (orange, red & yellow) will be fine.

Alexis said...

I have to rule you both went for the same fellow, in that your mutual casting was probably simultaneous (neither of you held back a move to see how the other's cast went). So I'm afraid, no swapping.

That said,

Mr. Orange rolled a 20 and made save. Mr. Yellow and Mr. Red both fail their saves.

Andrej said...

That's fair. And a nice net result for the party.

Andrej steps into hex 0605 as previously indicated, but would like to use his last MP to go to to better cover Lukas's casting.

Andrej said...

go to 0505 that should have read.

Alexis said...

Ahmet,

I'm afraid Andrej's spell does not take effect in time for you to gain a bonus to hit ... however, you do have a point of movement you can use now (since there's no in combat move penalty).

Alexis said...

Andrej,

Since Mr. Orange is stunned, any of the brown fellows on your side will have to come around the machine by way of 0304 ... or go under it. Therefore 0505 will probably cover Lukas at least for next round.

It should be noted that Klaas is reloading.

Ahmet said...

Sorry -- do you mean I hit him again?

Ahmet said...

(or I can try to, anyway)

Ahmet said...

If Ahmet can swing at Mr. Yellow again, he does so:

To hit: 18
Damage: 8

If he can't swing at Mr. Yellow again, he moves to 0604 to pursue Mr. Green.

Alexis said...

No Ahmet, I meant that you were swinging at Mr. Yellow at the same time that Andrej was discharging his spell. You can't attack again, I'm afraid; that roll is null and void.

But yes, you are free to move to 0604.

And once again we wait on Janos (and its the end of the day anyway).

He'll probably get home, check his email and do a face-palm.

Andrej said...

(OOC: Any word from Janos via e-mail?)

Alexis said...

(OOC: None. Might be on vacation. Or it may be another disappeared Silvius)

Alexis said...

Mr. Green will take a swing at Ahmet; rolling a 4 and missing.

Greenhand skips across the front of the machine, walking straight through the missile at the front as though it isn't there. He stops on the top of the front right wheel of the machine.

Yellowhand, Pinkhand and Bluehand take wary positions away from Andrej, preparing for a fight.

Mr. Pink sucks back a healing salve.

Working on the next post ...

(OOC: God, I'm sorry to worry you fellas! I'm here, if a bit late—and with my face thoroughly imprinted upon my palm...

Is it too late for Janos to act this round, Alexis?)

Alexis said...

(OOC: sorry Janos, yes, because I've already posted the enemy attack ... and sorry about the joke on the next post)

The next post is up.
