A Rocky Field ~ Sparring 1

Ready to Rumble

The above is the clearest part of ground you could find.  It takes 3 AP to climb up on top of one of the large boulders; they're large enough that if you're hit and stunned, you must make a dex check or you will take 1 damage from falling off.

The smaller stones will not block movement, but if you stand in a hex with a small stone in it, your armor class is reduced by 2 points due to stumbling over the stone.

I need Sofia and Nine-toes to each roll a d6 for initiative.

The monks move.

Here we go!

d6: 4

Alexis Smolensk said...

Hm. I don't have a dexterity for Kismet or a page for Yuliya. If you could give me a url, Yuliya, and a dex, Kismet, please.

Sofia, your 15 dex does not give you a +1 reaction adjustment.

At the moment, Sofia's party has initiative, but Ibrahim and Nine-toes both have a dexterity that ties Sofia and Kismet. I don't know if Yuliya or Kismet has a dex above 15 [please let me know if you do]. That matters a lot at the moment.

Otherwise, we'll have to run this simulataneous. Can everyone tell me, first, what your encumbrance is and you total AP? Sofia and Nine-toes will likely have 6 AP as monks (if that doesn't fit with former knowledge, just assume it is so right now).

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

Sofia drops her pack, glaive and cloak prior to taking the field.

enc: 38.7
AP: 6

Can I presume Sofia has her daggers drawn before initiative was rolled?

Kismet said...

Kismet Dex: 13
Load: Lightest (5ap)

I never did sort out adventurer's wear, so I'll need to figure that out for CLO.

For this it would be sane for him to be splinted mail I think, unless CLO proves otherwise.

Kismet said...

Sorry encumbrance is 101 after removing backpack.

Nine-toes said...

enc: 44.8
AP: 6

Nine-toes said...

(after he drops the backpack)

Alexis Smolensk said...

Given the weather, you're safe in splint; if this lasts until round 9, you might take REAL damage if you don't rest.

Kismet said...

I think 8 rounds should be enough.
I'll also have my broadsword and shield.
As opposed to any number of battle configuration (I like options).

Alexis Smolensk said...

That took less time than expected.

Okay, with dexterities in, we can start. Five of the people in this combat are moving simultaneously, two on one side, three on the other. Enrico is the slow man.

As such, everyone gets to go before he does.

But just for shits and giggles, and because everyone is a player, we'll do it this way. Could those with 6 AP please expend 1 AP doing whatever it is you wish to do this round. Include partial actions, so if you wish to start something with more than 1 AP, state what it is and you'll get partway through the action.

Has everyone read the action points page?

Kismet, with adventurer's wear and your hauberk and chausses, I get a CLO of 2.71. Are you wearing anything else?

Enrico Guerriero said...

Enrico is turtled up in plate mail, helmet, and large shield. He frees up 12.3 pounds by dropping his bow, quiver with arrows, and backpack... taking him down to 92.7 pounds. (He has a 17 STR.)

He uses his +1 horseman's flail.

Enrico Guerriero said...

Alexis, I don't think we rolled HP for Enrico upon hitting Level 2? He has 26 HP at the moment (17 CON, so +3... mass is 217 pounds).

Kismet said...

It appears I do not have anything else at this time.
I for some reason forgot I wanted to clear up what adventurer's wear entailed so I could see where I was lacking.

Could have sworn I bought a coat, but otherwise no.

I'm assuming we can't spar with ranged so easily and will only be using melee arms? If ranged is spar-able I would probably start with a throwing axe.

Nine-toes said...

(Making the commute home at this point. I'll check in when I get home... assuming I'm not already pummeled to death.)

Alexis Smolensk said...

The end of this post: Ahmet & Enrico says that you rolled a 6 for hit points.

I can't find any post that states what you had at first level. Your maximum would have been 21, so you've added the six. The question is, did you add the +3 bonus for your constitution??? I have no idea.

My standard practice is to default to whatever you have now, since you could not possibly have had 26 HP at first level; you obviously did add, and if you didn't remember the constitution, that's your fault. But I'll let you decide if you did add that or not, then fix it as you feel is right.

Alexis Smolensk said...

Kismet,

Footwear?

Alexis Smolensk said...

Go ahead and fight as perfectly normal, Lukas. We'll say you took the head off the axe or something; it might as well be like a real combat, for the sake of enjoying ourselves.

Ibrahim Bin Yusuf said...

After dropping my backpack and doffing my robe, my total carried is 10.87 and my CLO is 0.53. I have 5 AP.

Kismet said...

I made Kismet forever ago, so I can't speak to my logic at the time, but I thought footwear was in the adventurer's wear.

Can we take it to the character creation post? Kismet isn't poor so if possible I'd like to shake out the moths over there.

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

Sofia moves backwards to hex 0508.

Can I presume her daggers are drawn? She requires AP to draw light weapons due to a condition from her background, so need to account for them if not.

Kismet said...

Kismet will start to throw an axe at... nine-toes.
I guess it makes sense to declare a target for that since some aiming would be involved.

Alexis Smolensk said...

[It does state clearly on Adventurer's wear what it includes, Kismet. Please go pay for a pair of boots]

Kismet, I said, those with a SIX ap. Please hold your horses.

Sofia, you can move and draw a light weapon at the same time, with the same amount of AP, so presume you've drawn a dagger.

Waiting for Nine-toes to move.

Nine-toes said...

Nine-toes would very much like to hide behind a boulder, but I can't read the hex numbers on the picture. 0612 I think?

Enrico Guerriero said...

I'm not sure what Enrico's CLO should be -- is armor not considered clothing, just what you have on under it?

Alexis Smolensk said...

The boulder would be in 0612, but to hide behind it, you should be in 0613, the number perfectly visible. Remember a hex is only 5 feet in diameter.

But you haven't read carefully, Nine-toes. I stated, ONE AP only for your move at this time. What would you like to do with 1 AP?

Alexis Smolensk said...

[oh, if you right-click the image on the blog and open it in another window, you'll find it will expand to a large enough size that it can be read easily ~ though perhaps not on a phone]

Alexis Smolensk said...

Yes, that is correct, Enrico. Don't worry about the armor itself when determining CLO ~ except that leather armor should be counted as a hauberk.

Alexis Smolensk said...

[OOC: I don't know if you're following the bard sage abilities page, Ibrahim, but I'm working a little bit on it all the time ~ some interesting stuff today on the conceptualism study]

Ibrahim Bin Yusuf said...

[ OOC: I had not been keeping up with it over the holiday, but I just looked - very interesting indeed! I'll be watching from here on out to see where things go.

I find the concept of Purgation both deeply appealing and deeply terrifying, so high marks there. :D ]

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

Alexis, do you still require those wearing leather armor to also wear a hauberk? I know Andrej currently has both studded leather and a hauberk.

Nine-toes said...

I would like to move to 1013.

Enrico Guerriero said...

I have a feeling you might have at least one player who claims to be naked under his armor... which would force you to come up with chafing damage I suppose.

So it would appear Enrico's CLO is 1.93 -- cloak, gauntlets, breeches, loin cloth, shirt, doublet, and high boots. (Apparently the helmet is free?)

I'm not sure a doublet would actually be worn under plate armor... but let's play it out.

He'll take off the cloak to drop to 1.40.

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

Psst... Nine-Toes: "I move to 1013."

Nine-toes said...

(DOH!) I move to 1013.

Nine-toes said...

(OOC - I hope I can make it through my first combat after returning without nearly getting booted from the campaign like I did in the crab fight.)

Alexis Smolensk said...

I've got the wrong post for Sofia's question about leather armor ~ but the answer is that leather/studded leather armor alone does not need a hauberk or chausses. The legs are bare with leather armors and the hauberk is built into the leather armor.

You can sell your hauberk at cost in Syros if you want, to sort that out.

Enrico, right, the helmet is free. Unless you want to spend hours trying to find a CLO rating for armor of any kind. I spent an hour and came up completely empty.

Nine-toes, I hope that too!

Alexis Smolensk said...

Okay, I have updated the blog post. Can everyone, except Enrico, move 1 AP or take 1 AP's worth of action.

Eventually, we will get through this round.

Ibrahim Bin Yusuf said...

[Hmm. Both the speediest characters stepped back.]

I should have prepared better. If there are any small stones appropriate for slinging at my feet, I use 1 AP to pick one up. If there aren't, I'll be taking a different course of action.

Yuliya Romanyuk said...

[OOC: Sorry for my absence, Alexis! Seems like my blog link got lost in your email; it's yuliyaromanyukkamut.blogspot.ca]

Alexis Smolensk said...

Give me a move, Yuliya.

Ibrahim, you're quite lucky that you're in Greece. But there are only about twenty small stones of approximately the right size in the hex you are in. Consider yourself in possession of a stone.

Kismet said...

Kismet starts to throw an axe at Ibrahim.

Nine-toes said...

OOC Uh, guys, can anyone heal us up after we're through throwing axes at each other?

Alexis Smolensk said...

None of the damage is real. It is sparring.

Yuliya Romanyuk said...

Yuliya moves to 0510.

Sofia Viktorova Koleva said...

Sofia starts to throw a dagger at Ibrahim.

Alexis Smolensk said...

That's just annoying as hell, Nine-toes. Everyone else has moved ~ and although you had time to make a comment yesterday that did not address what was going on, 28 HOURS ago, no word from you since.

Okay, Nine-toes does nothing this move.

The next post is up.
