Zax still has to act. If he doesn't, turn should advance tomorrow.

Is the pirate commander provoking an AoO from Zax?

Zax is rocking a bow at the moment, no AoOs sadly.  Question: if I shoot at the pirate, will that disrupt the Luring Call?

It would count as making the area dangerous and grant a new saving throw. However since you're all on the same iniative, you can coordinate your actions regardless of the order you post. So you can all atempt to finish it off with regular attacks and if you fail, Pha atempts to lure it.

I'm pretty sure that by 'dangerous area', it means stuff like a having him walk over a pit, fire, lava, past a cliff or other dangerous areas.
See the description of Captivating Son of the Harpy. Its the same thing. Getting attacked by creatures doesn't qualify because its not the area that is dangerous, its the creatures on it. It even puts a clause that they can defend themselves normally.
Otherwise it would be ridiculous... by being close to the FV it would automatically get a new saving throw despite the mention that it offers no resistance.

Dude. You specialize in the usage of improvised weapons. You can smash him with the bow like a club. Or even swing an arrow at him. Or your spiked shield. Or anything.
You threaten for AoOs as long as you have something with a melee reach. You just can't do it with your normal bow+arrow attacks.

Fair enough.

As a ranged weapon, a bow has no melee reach. But it still counts as a weapon, so it cannot be used as an improvised one (only objects designed to not be weapons can be used as so, regardless of ranged or melee). He also can't swap what he's holding outside his turn.

But by all means amuse me and use it as a club for an Aoo, -4 penalty on the attack roll and everything, for the sake of rule of cool.

In the event that this happens again, I'll note that although a bow requires two hands to use effectively, it takes only one hand to hold it.
You can still use your other hand to attack with random stuff.
When you do not use a weapon in the way it is intended to be used (such as holding your sword by the blade to smack someone with the pommel for bludgeon damage), it automatically acts as an improvised weapon.

IE, taken from the SRD: An arrow used as a melee weapon is treated as a light improvised weapon (-4 penalty on attack rolls) and deals damage as a dagger of its size (critical multiplier ×2)

Except an arrow isn't a weapon. It is ammo for a bow, thus it qualifies for improvised use. The base rules don't allow you to change the kind of damage a weapon deals just because of the way you wield it on the fly.

So if I hit someone with the hilt of a sword it still deals Slashing damage? What, am I wielding a monomolecular sword or something?

True but that would, in effect, change the damage type.

I would just like to say
@ Sneaky
You sir, are a master in the art of Roleplay.

Every single post in-character is pure, concentrated awesome.  :clap

EDIT:

, and what happens to the crystals? Do they get absorbed or something?
Because that will be a major WTF moment for Kurt. He sucks something up, and then *poit* it's not there anymore.

I just realized something!

Kirby is obviously a pokemon.  However, if Kirby is a pokemon then so are Kong and Pha.   :lmao

Thank goodness I'm not evil.   :smirk

Yes, basically the HP of everybody but minions pokemons goes up by 1, and the crystals get absorbed by your bodies.

And I might add from a DM's view is always quite satisfying to see the players get in their own roles too. It makes the whole experience much more fun for everybody.

Now to update the IC thread. I'll assume Zax just keeps playing silent tough guy.
