If it gets destroyed instantly but comes back a day later, that's 24 hours with one less pit fiend to worry about.

I forgot and made my rolls in the IC thread... and also forgot to include his power points and readied maneuvers in his stat block there, but they are correct on his character sheet.

Oh good, I was wondering how I was going to get Haste up and attack in the same round, but WRT handily solves that problem. The only problem will be dealing with the repercussions of attacking the fiend.

Back from vacation.  I guess I'd like to see what the more melee oriented among you have to do before I commit spells.  I don't know how many fights this event might entail.

Been a bit busy, but I should be able to post my round soon. Hopefully that means you won't have to wait too long.

Yeah, sorry. Things got away from me. Hopefully I can get my post up soon so I can stop holding things up!

Melee strength drain. That's not good...

Just Str damage, not drain. :P

Eh, that's not that part that worries me.

I hope you're not asking for recalculating attacks after every attack in case of a failed save? Looking at the number of attacks Dyson has going on, that would be...

Something.

You mean Iskandar. Dyson has almost the exact opposite melee style. :P

Yes, that.

Meanwhile if I am in melee hell has frozen over.

phaedrusxy: Hadn't you already used your Swift action for White Raven tactics? Because an immediate action in your own turn would consume that turn's swift action. Unless you have some ability to have two of them per round.

That would technically be the RAW way to do it yeah but I'm just gonna let Iskandar keep his attack/damage values even if he fails the saves for sanity's sake (fluffwise everything happens so fast that the str damage only kicks in after the attacks happened).  :p

Doesn't an immediate action consume your next turn's swift action?

Oh, and I've been wondering: the hell is Dyson supposed to be an Inevitable of? They all have a purpose, right? xD

Using an immediate action on your turn is the same as using a swift action, and counts as your swift action for that turn.

You cannot use another immediate action or a swift action until after your next turn if you have used an immediate action when it is not currently your turn (effectively, using an immediate action before your turn is equivalent to using your swift action for the coming turn).


It's different whetever you use an immediate action in your turn or somebody else's turn.

Oh, and I've been wondering: the hell is Dyson supposed to be an Inevitable of? They all have a purpose, right? xD

I recall Dyson basically being a contigency plan in case the events of the plot happened. So it's literally the Inevitable of completing this campaign. :p

Iskandar makes dex-based attacks, so he wouldn't have to change the rolls. On the other hand, his strength is abysmal, so if he fails those fort saves he falls helpless.

Oslecamo: Thanks for noting the dex drain amount. In addition to that, I need to know how many attacks hit (so I know how many fort saves to make) as well as how many of my crits were confirmed, for Blood in the Water.

Also a point to note in case it's relevant: Iskandar's melee attacks overcome half of any DR by default thanks to Legendary Might. I didn't note it in my spoiler. Sorry, it's been a while, and I'm trying to review all of what his abilities are. Apparently the DC's of his abilities are also +2 thanks to Essence drain, which would impact the save vs. Stagger and likely not much else.

Oooh... that's true. This happened during Dyson's turn, not after it... OK... I guess I'll have to just hope for luck on the dice...

All attacks hit.

Ah, then that means the Pit Fiend is dead before your last crit... Unless you take enough Str damage to be knocked down to zero Str before finishing it off.

Ok, I'll try to roll my saves and strength damage today. It's kind of hard on my phone but should be able to get to it a bit later.
