Since the GM is lagardly
, I'll give you guys initiative.
As the screaming mob of bandits charges into the tents, a group of about half a dozen seperates and goes to meet you. As you yourselves charge in, a fleeing washerwoman makes it to safety behind you and sensibly keeps on running.
Her face is a combination of fear and annoyance. Life on the road is hard and mentally toughening for more than adventurers.
Then you are upon the bandits and there is no more room for sightseeing.
Rowan: (To-Hit is still d20 + Stuff. Stuff includes one-half your level, rounded down. That's now your BAB. You can use a power to gain various bonuses to the roll and you can still improvise - In fact, there's guidelines for that. Page 42 of the DMG. Damage is still your weapon dice, but some powers multiply your dice. Typically, x1 for At-Will, x2 for Encounter and x3 for Daily, at level 1.)
You see a hollering, angry face in front of you with pale blue eyes and yellow hair. His helmet is patched leather and his armor the same, with some simple chain and scale bits here and there.
(And Invisible Castle is offline. Er, roll a d20 on your end and tell me what you get, ok?
Everyone else, wait for Rowan to post again after my next post, so we can keep things in order)
Korgan: A scummy orc bares his fangs and snarls at you...Just before his head bursts like a ripe melon and you smash his neck down into his chest. His clay helmet didn't help much, either.
Nightbreeze: (Sly Flourish is Dex vs AC - you hit. It's also your weapon dice, 1d6, plus your Dexterity mod, plus your Charisma mod. Roll on your end, since Invisible Castle is down.
You slash at the side of a trailing human, who has scaled armor and a well-kept mace. Being a sensible bandit, he's not leading the charge.
(Right, everybody wait till we get the rolling sorted out. I'll signal when the next round starts.
I'll also do monster attacks then, once I know how many I have left.
PC races have monster manual entries now. Great for bandits.
The D&D Online Compendium is up; it's a searchable and filterable list of Stuff. Doesn't include MM monsters yet, but includes PHB, DMG and Dungeon and Dragon stuff. Signing up is still free.
Erm...'This concludes your friendly public broadcast'?)
