You can keep it where it is, all you did was yell and move.

I think we've waited long enough. Eirik, I'm going to assume you're in too much pain to act and are content to be carried. As a consolation prize for skipping this round I'll give you a short vision.

Everyone else who's holding their actions, you have until the end of the day to use 'em before you lose 'em.

So far, not too bad. Round one was her Firestarter ability, which just over-lit the lantern and spilled the oil. It was just a splattering. This round she continued to use Firestarter to spread the fire faster. It is basically a 5x10 foot area right behind her that is on fire, but that will spread to adjacent squares in following rounds getting much bigger very quickly. By the end of next round the fire will be a pretty serious problem.

The wagon needs to be moved or it's going to be in big trouble.

And can it be got back past the fire, or is forward the only way now?

It would be a bad idea to back it up through the fire (as wendle mentioned earlier) and forward is too tight of a turn. The left wheels would end up off the edge.

The only ways to do it would be to put out the fire and convince the Boros to back up, or to turn the wagon on it's own axis somehow.

This does not sound like a good situation.  Permission to run in circles while panicking?

Works for me. Sorry for the delay. Just got internet at the new place today.

Ok, the threat is over for the moment. I'm breaking from initiative and going back to free-form posting.

You have about 30 seconds before the fire reaches the wagon and risks lighting the canvas, and slightly more before the riders in the distance close.

It looks like there is one in the lead with two behind him, and then a larger force of creatures on foot, moving in with a strange animalistic lope.

I am going to be gone until Sunday night. Even though we're not in initiative order anymore I'd still like to work posts in 5-10 second increments. Assume the NPC's will basically cooperate and follow the party's lead, with the exception of the cloaked figures who will flat out ignore anything aimed at them until they've sorted things out among themselves.

I'm waiting on *anyone* to jump in, To reiterate, we're out of initiative order now, but still in loose 5-10 second time increments.

Aye aye, mon capitan. Big Dorn go rahr. Or, if you prefer,

Dorin smash puny turn radius!

You nutty bastard.

A little research and a little math, and yeah, Dorin can do that. Barely.

Just so everyone's clear, the wagon is a full sized, pioneer style Conestoga. It is about 10 feet wide and about 20 feet long. It's about 1/2 loaded so it weighs about 2000 pounds.



Dorin, using the front axle as a fulcrum, can amplify his lift (800) to about 2,300 pounds of upward force.

Put simply, the wagon requires two oxen just to pull it, and Dorin just lifted it.

Though Eirik is impressed. Good job sir! That is epic!

Neverfox, Ivy gains two Karma for the damn good idea you just displayed.

Folks, if you take a look at Fox's sig line you'll see a link to her combat data sheet. If the rest of you would follow suit, I'd really appreciate it.

Erm, how?  Drawing a blank on the code to do it.  Enclosing something in http:// tags makes it a hyperlink, but I've not managed to figure out the code to have that show up as text.

Yeah.  I have no idea why my .sig doens't show up. Tongue

Thanks for that, fox.  I must have tried pretty much every variation except the right one. Wink

I think it's about time to kick this off.

Everyone has until Monday to post any preliminary actions before combat starts. If you don't post before then you'll have to do things in initiative order in normal combat rounds.

I'm going to run the combat from this OOC so the bad guys will be posting here. Feel free to banter and heckle, but keep it nice. Most of you are old hats at this, but just in case someone forgets I'd like to remind everyone that there is a difference between what happens in-game and what happens out-of-game. Just because the characters are trying to kill you does not mean that the players don't like you. Don't take anything personally.

Also, I'd like to remind everyone that this is still technically the Intro (longest intro ever) so there is no chance of death yet. You will all survive this. That doesn't mean there are no consequences though. If you get unlucky or do something dumb you might still end up captured or crippled. Don't confuse "won't die" with "can't lose".

We are still running things mostly cinematically, but I am going to implement one mechanic as of now: Karma.

Please check the Major Rules Changes thread for a more in depth description of how Karma works. It is a player resource (like action points) that will only benefit you if you understand what it can do and remember to use it.
