    Hey DK - can you explain how in your game you let people go "out of initiative" in combat? How you keep your game moving and speed things up?
    well, this last combat was kind of the exception since all the skeletons went last. So, it didn't make much difference to just let everyone act and then for me to act.

    It does make a good argument for just having the monsters go last every time. Or at least, having the monsters go at the same time. In other words, if there are three monsters, give them all one initiative. And then have everyone go, and then the monsters, and then everyone, repeat. It would work ok even if the monsters went in the middle of the round.

    A
    B
    C
    monsters
    D
    E
    F

    A,B, and C could act, and then monsters, and then D-F and A-C could act; repeat.


    But, in general, letting people all go at the same time isn't that big of a hassle so long as people put in enough caveats (if there is room, I do X), so that tends to work as well.

    DW's game runs pretty fast, since we all post pretty consistently. I've never seen it bog down.

    I feel like we are frequently waiting a long amount of time for an individual to post / you all are waiting on ME a long time when I can't be around and would prefer everyone else just went instead of waiting for me all the time.

    Should I change Linw's alignment to CN?

    In a world where the bad guys will go to any length to kill you, they don't deserve a hug just for deciding to grovel at your feet after you've beaten them with a shovel.

    That's how Linw feels about it.

    Besides, it gives DW an out - Gogmurt could survive, and come back to us. That's way more fun in the long run.

    That has nothing to do with it - you've misinterpreted Sabina's words and are conveniently making excuses for not properly finishing the job before disposing of the creature.

    What I said there has absolutely nothing to do with Sabina.

    OK, I did XP and it looks like everybody except Kaddock (understandably so) leveled up! I have attached the spreadsheet so you can all see it.

    Everyone who is leveling please work on updating your characters and the next time the party rests we'll put the new levels into effect.

    Done. I took Power Attack as my feat.

    I realized that I'd never calculated my str bonus correctly. Since I'm using a 2-handed weapon, I should have added 1.5 x the strength bonus to my damage. It should have been +3 instead of +2. Oh well, probably wouldn't have made a huge difference.

  • #205
    Don forget using Power Attack whatever you subtract from you roll you DOUBLE and add to damage if you use a 2handed weapon as well

  • #206
    Character updated!!

    Cid is updated.

    I realized I didn't calculate Linw's new hit points. How do we do that again? Is it HD/2 +1 + con?

    Yes, that is how you calculate new HP!

    Just so everybody is aware, I have a class and will be out of the office all week except for today. Since I do 90% of my posting from there things will be moving slow this week. I'll try and to some posting from home so that we don't come to a halt but it won't be our usual pace for sure.
