I make casual predictions to see how people react. The three reactions did 18-->12-->9 damage, and given the analogous occurrence of the petals falling off the flower, one by one, the damage is clearly decreasing. Given the trend of *1/3, I took a guess.

Of course, there's always a possibility that there's a big nuke when the petals run out, but if that was going to happen you probably would have made it clear just how many petals there were to begin with.

Uhh, yeah, that was just a coincidence. I was just trying to think of a way a Sunflower attacks. Although I might keep that in mind for later...

I'd prefer you rolled the d8, for the boost and heal, like now. It matters for the reactions.

Also you can heal him to positive health, and heal be able to attack, but the fatal damage stays.

Sorry- I left right after posting, so forgot to do the rolls. Anyway... D8 roll came up a 3. So... That could have been better.

If Sunbeam is okay with it, then I'll hit Skitter with the healing part of it, and try to build up my pips to hit Sunset with It is Not this Day instead. Sorry for the delays!

Well, the thing is that it heals an unconscious ally, and allows them to trigger one of their special moves...

like what kind of details?

It's a [-6] minor,so It'll probably take Compass a few turns to pull off, and you'll only get 1d4 HP, but you choose which move you want to use.

Alright, yeah. If you can't use it next turn, then stuff it and just get me back on my feet as quickly as possible. Though you will have to make an effort to heal me enough so that I don't get knocked out by the wind-ups before I can take my turn.

Say, do I still get saving throws while unconscious?

Post  TheCavalry on Fri Nov 07, 2014 4:35 pm

...well, derp.

Okay, if I understand things... Even if I used my Divne Boon healing on Sunbeam, he would have only got three... meaning Three would knock him right out again. I don't want to meta game, but given that (and again, rule of drama and narrative and all that) I get the impression that it's better to just leave that part as affecting Skitter.

Though, Dr... On the damage front:
Sunflower react [10] + Vuln [4] = 14
One [12] + Vuln [4] = 16
Three [10] + Vuln [4] = 14
HP [49] - Total Damage [44] = 5

And I have ongoing damage 5. Buck.
And I didn't take Wave of Zeal, WHY DIDN'T I TAKE WAVE OF ZEAL?

Er... Advice fellas? Cause right now, the only move I can do next turn (besides hoping that I don't die of ongoing damage) is Mocking Melody.

well, I shouldn't give advice, so I'll just state some things.

-Once per battle, you may choose to swap a talent you did bring for one you didn't
-I've altered the Ongoing to Ongoing 3
-Ongoing triggers at the start of turns, before you have a chance to save

For the record, I don't mean to come across as whining; just the opposite. I've been considering combats as things to get through on our way to the next plot point, so a fight like this, with the genuine possibility of death? I'm interested. Doesn't make the fact that the part of the system I was treating as rite and standard suddenly putting me in mortal peril is causing me to freak out a little lol.

Also, fuck load out experimentation, I doubt Wave is ever going to leave my combat choices again.

Well, I guess I should just say good luck. You guys can do it! Remember your true goals and reach for the stars! Dan vs Smiles

Seriously, I'm sorry if I made this too hard. It was not my intention to TPK anyone, i just thought the last battle was a little lackluster ( from my end, not yours, Cav) and wanted to step it up a bit.

Oh, tougher? Most definitely; the fact that Sunflower can hit on healing and sum outings- which some of the party specialises in- threw me for a loop.
Funnily enough though, I don't think this is too hard. If the last fight was a random dungeon encounter, this feels a lot more like an end-of-dungeon boss, with three elites as opposed to an army of mooks. Honestly, I think a part of what makes this seem harder is the idea that fewer characters are fighting... even though you are still counting skitter, Steel and Markeds actions. It's a psychological warfare thing, I think.

Point is, I'm enjoying it... And I stand by what I said. If you achieve TPK, we still got a decent story out of it (and nice nightmare fuel: the idea of the next set of challengers for Fiscords Game running into our characters robotised.) My point is... I'm enjoying it.

Final boss, huh?

Extra incentive! Get out of the Laughter room alive with the key, and reach level 2!

(Sure, I was planning on that anyway, but might as well announce it now)

Well, good to know! Fortunately,(?) Steel Works has had some luck against bosses as well while you were gone.

So, do you want to continue? It's fine, if you don't, and great if you do!

Alright, so my chosen moves will be

[+X] Sip of Death (Daredevil's Rush) - Standard Utility
You suffer Xd8 damage and are dazed until the end of your next turn. X cannot be more than 5.

[+2] Salt the Wounds (Survival Skills) - Standard Utility
You regain 1d12+3 hp

[+2] Shot of Mercury (Paranoia) - Standard Utility
Target enemy immediately makes an attack against a creature of your choice. The target chooses which attack to use.

[+3] Distilled Might (Critfisher) – Standard Utility
Choose one;
A) Roll two dice of your choice from amongst d8s, d10s and d12s (you could choose to roll both dice from one of these types, or a mix from amongst these types).
B) Pay 2 energy. If you do, roll five dice of your choice from amongst d8s, d10s and d12s (you could choose to roll all five from one of these types, or a mix from amongst these types).

[-8] Draught of False Gods (Family Recipe) - Standard Attack
Target creature is dazed (save ends), weakened (save ends), suffers a -2 penalty to saving throws (save ends) and suffers vulnerability 5 (save ends).

And my perception roll will be

8+5=13

With how slow the battle has gone so far, I'd like to request that everyone post their HP totals and any status effects they have at the end of each turn. It helps to make sure I don't miss anyone while healing. Before I didn't want to bother people with it but now my mental totals are just gone.

Er... On that note. Quick question guys.

I have vuln 4 and ongoing 3. So... That means at the beginning of my turn, before doing anything, I take 7 damage? Or 3?

I ask since... If it's the former... Well, my HP is 5. And while I'll RP a KO post, I don't want to hold the fighters up.

Thanks sun. I meant to do that, but forgot. Along this vein of thought, mj, what was the temp hp you rolled while i was having a personal crisis? Because I have somewhere between 34 and 37 health with that in mind.

It's 7 unfortunatly. But you get a perception check before you pass out.

Also, I rolled a 4 for your temp hp, Colter.

And I already rolled Skitter's save vs stun. She failed.

Okie-dokie-Loki. I'll post real quick with the roll, and just edit in the death part later.

(Er... Do those two extra points carry over to fatal damage? Because I'm on 8 of that.)

Yes they do. And you're not dead, just unconscious. A few heal checks, and you'll be back on your hooves in no time.

Assuming you make it through the encounter.
