Doesn't bravery include Strike, which does bypass Alert?

You are correct in that, thanks for reminding me.

Still need to wait for Stephanie/Teresa's free/immediate stuff before starting to resolve things.

Hmm, damn. For some reason I felt sure larger weapons were harder to disarm but that's apparently wrong. Guess I'm losing my swords again cause I need a nat20 to even match that disarm check.

Couldn't find how disarming built-in weapons works tho.

I recall saying that in-built weapons get a +4 bonus against disarm but can't find any reference indeed. Still I'll re-rule it that way for now. If somebody else recalls the exact ruling please let me know.

I've still got the Zeal actions to decide though it could all depend on the state of things before them. I'll add the usual "save vs this and that" once each per enemy attacked thing and maybe note contingencies of what my actions could be in the possible scenarios though there's so much that's possible with the material available it'd quite probably be pointless to guess.

Mao's situation really makes me feel like we dodged a bullet by going to a beach party -_-'

Appreciated.


WTF is that roll.

I just realized I obviously failed that counter. I'll put HP values later, but Teresa is definitely under -10.

Will start updating Mao/Stephanie's side of things later this weekend.

The beach is safer than the ruins filled with dangerous experiments, who would've thought? :P

Reflex Vs. Downfall? I dunno you didn't say

Downfall is a trip check.

Question!

Can my Soul from Ghostly Wheel of Pain use Spirits when it's summoned and begins its turn?

Rolled a base of 18 on the dice anyways so is good~

Well, yeah, the beach is... what, a pretty early area in episode... I'm not sure. Not 1. Maybe 4? God, it's been ages. The ruins are the final area of Episode 1. :D

PSO1 didn't really have beaches. It had jungles though, both episodes 1 and 3 (2 was a card game).

As for PSO2, I think it was the start of episode 3 or the end of episode 2. By the end of Episode 3 you have planet Harkotan, which means we'd have passed it, while as you said, ruins are the end of episode 1.

The jungle at PSO 1 episode 2 did have a beach subsection (it was in an island after all) and it was episode 3 that was the card game.

Yes.

Soro: Some problems with your actions.
-Twin weapons can only make paired attacks as a standard action, at the end of a charge or if an effect explicitly allows it. The Ambush maneuver only allows one attack.
-Guard is 20 spirit points base, how are you paying only 8?
-Illusion Star needs you to borrow maneuvers to your clone and write down a set of instructions for them to follow.

Will need a map. Space is still compressed all the way toward the end of the room.

I wish you all the luck finding that map, because I can't give you one before August. At best. :)

No, it's compressed between two points, that's just a line, between Mao's starting position roughly at the mid of the room and one of the walls. Outside that line, the room's space works as normal.

1. Twin weapons can only make paired attacks as a standard action, at the end of a charge or if an effect explicitly allows it. The Ambush maneuver only allows one attack.
2. Guard is 20 spirit points base, how are you paying only 8?
3. Illusion Star needs you to borrow maneuvers to your clone and write down a set of instructions for them to follow.
A. Ahh, well then I'm going to go figure out what hits harder and roll that.
B. Alert happens to cost 8 and it's right beside it, looks like I looked at the wrong number, maybe alternating background colors would help but all well, will adjust.
C. It seems that part never got posted, probably because I created a couple preset patterns I intended to post on the sheet but can't, Current plan is to watch it die horribly and near instantaneously as it initiates the fifteen round start up to fire some crappy Delayed Blast Fireballs while bluffing it's self to be a roadway sign.
1. God Throughout the World[Wall of Light] with the request of displaying pixel art of Hugo being slapped in the face, provides total-concealment.
2. Orreries' Solar System[Delayed Blast Fireball], which does nothing this turn but they can't see it anyway.
3. DZ's Parry, in case they fire at it. "If one of the instructions can't be carried out, it tries to do the next one."
4~1,000, Cockpit Hit & Quick Blow & Parry as needed while carpet bombing the ship and then everyone on it in a nondiscriminatory left-to-right order which happens until it's out of energy.
1,001~1,000,000: Spam Iron Blow (regen > expenditure) to keep it from timing out while the Solar System fires until it becomes unable to use this Maneuver (aka targets are out of range).

This is also Carpet Bombing: Plan B. Plan A is to nuke Bahamut with the Fireballs and it totally had a cooler name in chat the other day.

Edit: Yeahee, mods are currently broke. I can't roll anything for now.

Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

I don't mind. Pretty busy, especially during the summer. I can use the downtime.

I know the compressed space is only a line. It still goes all the way toward the end of the room, is what I mean. Hard to show specifically how it goes without a map though.

Mao can tank the damage but it's odd that they are now pulling immediate actions on her turn right before any action is done. If that was to be, why have them do them after you wait for me to declare my actions? You could have declared those as part of the crunch of their turn. Feels like a retroaction. "Now our actions are over, say want you do now. Wait, nevermind, we forgot to do this before it really is your turn to declare what you do."

Ok, to keep things simple, until the forum is fixed you can roll however you want and only need to post the final results here. I trust you enough to don't try to cheat in this, and I hope you'll trust me in return.

I don't mind. Pretty busy, especially during the summer. I can use the downtime.
It's ok if you want to take a break from the campaign and return later, but if YuweaCurtis posts actions for Stephanie, I'm advancing that side of the campaign for them and Mao will count as locked in a time rift or something.

They're newtypes. They have the zero system. THIS IS THE POWER OF THE MONADO! They are Mythra's drivers. It was technically your turn after all, force of habit. I'll try to remember it next time.

Still the party has often took advantage when you get to see all enemy actions for their round and then cherry pick your reactions for the most dangerous bits. :p

1. God Throughout the World[Wall of Light] with the request of displaying pixel art of Hugo being slapped in the face, provides total-concealment.
Approved.  :D

If anyone needs a dice roller Anydice can be used. Click on "Roller" next to View instead of Graph and then change the 6 to a 1 (or w/e it was).

My bad if my action where off.

Also, the irony of that full round action effect.
