Stormwrack's Ship Rules, in a nutshell:

The party of the first part, heretoafter known as the Party, henceforth rolls lots of dice until the GM's favorite number is rolled a total of three times. Whenceforth, something happens.


Easier way to do it:

Find out if the Stormwrack book floats, while describing the story as you see fit. Screw the rules!

Yeah, that's kinda of what I've decided to do, just using the book rules as rough guidelines. Ships will be simply mobile plataforms with siege weaponry. :P

Also, pirate's iniatives since the IC post got screwed:

Map updated with the correct amount of ice, sorry about that.

Also, I did consider Pha is 5 feet underwater from what you posted on the IC. However acording to Stormwrack pg11, visibility is limited underwater, in particular as you go deeper. The pirates sticked to the bottom while aproaching, and the dock waters as murky for all the debris expected from fishing and commercial activities.

As for editing maps with rolls, I think it only gets mad if you touch the roll itself, but it may be safer to just post the rolls themselves in the ooc thread followed by a post on the IC thread.

And yes, you did win iniative so you can start acting!

We could just make a new thread for die rolls rather than clogging up the OOC with it.

Daaaww.
Pha can see at least 60ft deep in murky water. I should have asked if she could see anything in the water.

I imagine if you could have, a roll would have been called for. Oh well, let's slaughter pirates :)

@ osle, yep, I should have rolled in advance. It is an opposed roll though, so it's back to you now. :)

Also, how messed up is it that so many people missed their attacks, but for me, one of them failed a save. WITH A DC OF NINE!

Lol!

OK, since Zax can shoot through the barricade he will do so (and not 5-ft-step).

You guys just keep them occupied, Zax'll shut 'em down ;)

Well, all I was going to do was push them bask with Rushing Wind / keep them from advancing with Big Gust.
Then they all showed up right in my face.
Now, one has to beat a 25 grapple check.
No clue how that happened, but if it works I'll try to keep it inside me and do what I can otherwise.

What is the plan now with the anchor?

I take it that it's our turn now?

Zax really should have gotten Precise Shot on his bow... next time, I guess.

EDIT: Can you include the legend for the map again?  I keep forgetting.

Not that I mind Osle, but two points.
1) do these guys really have no bonuses to their saves, or are you adding that in after the roll?
2) 9 AC isn't very good. Right now it's 7 though, because my size change after the engulf.

Yeah, I need to empty my gullet, float up, and switch to bomb runs asap.

EDIT: also, next time a free shield and basic armour is offered, someone smack me if I don't grab it.
EDIT2: also, I already took Wonderful Engulfment, so it's dazed, not paralyzed. Only really matters for mental actions though.

Oslecamo, can I have Bayleef attack right before spending a standard action to retrieve her?

Osle, I need to know whether Kurt dropped either of those orcs (the spittee and the spit-on).

Legend added.

1) do these guys really have no bonuses to their saves, or are you adding that in after the roll?
2) 9 AC isn't very good. Right now it's 7 though, because my size change after the engulf.

1) Besides iniative, all other enemy modifiers on rolls remain secret.
2)Ouch. Doesn't change much tough, the only attack they missed against you was from a natural 1.

Oslecamo, can I have Bayleef attack right before spending a standard action to retrieve her?
Yes.
