Episode Transcript

[00:00:39] Speaker A: Hello, hello, hello, and welcome to the 49th episode of the Cracked Die podcast. I'm your host and GM, Sean, and well, looky here, 49 episodes. That's a lot of content. That's over 49 hours worth of content that we've given you, and we really hope you've been enjoying it. I know I've been enjoying running this game and having the players learn things and see where they've gone and what twists and turns they've thrown at me. Now this episode is going to get crazy. I can't tell you how insane this episode is. Everything changes. That's not an exaggeration this time. Everything changes in this episode. From this episode forward. It is a new era of the show, but we'll get into the episode in a minute. Secondly, I want to thank everyone who stopped by our inaugural agents of Edgewatch game on Twitch on August 29. Those videos on demand are still up on Twitch, so it's early enough. [00:01:56] Speaker B: You. [00:01:56] Speaker A: You can can get caught up on the show. Also, our videos on demand should be up on YouTube very shortly if they're not already there. So we're working on that. So once you get caught up, or heck, even if you haven't gotten caught up, make sure you stop by on September 19 at Twitch TV Crackeddy, and come take a look at our live show. All right, that's enough for me. Let's go to the table and see how everything changes. [00:02:33] Speaker B: Welcome to the 49th episode of the Cracked Die podcast, and possibly the last. [00:02:41] Speaker C: I mean, for these characters. Anyway. [00:02:43] Speaker D: Yeah, we're gonna have a rescue mission. [00:02:47] Speaker B: I gotta figure out how to bring new characters in when I tpk you all. [00:02:52] Speaker D: So it's a rescue mission for the rescue mission. [00:02:55] Speaker B: Oh, boy. [00:02:56] Speaker C: We can all be a kuja elves. And just wondering what happened to those nice folks that came by. [00:03:02] Speaker B: That actually wouldn't be a bad thing. [00:03:04] Speaker E: Maybe just like a bunch of leshies. [00:03:07] Speaker F: Oh, boy, I'd totally be okay with this. [00:03:10] Speaker B: Well, now that kobolds are playable, you guys, two of you can be Zarf and Pib. [00:03:17] Speaker D: Yes. [00:03:18] Speaker B: Dibs, they were. [00:03:25] Speaker G: I call Zara. [00:03:26] Speaker B: And you could be. Yeah, so there. Okay, so there are options when I kill you. All right, perfect. [00:03:33] Speaker D: Well, all things considered, I might bring in my dom pier lushie. [00:03:36] Speaker F: So Sean asked me to justify it. [00:03:40] Speaker D: And I said I was hit with a blight. [00:03:43] Speaker B: I was gonna say, are you like a Venus flytrap, but you can only eat other lushies. [00:03:49] Speaker D: Like, I'm just funicular, but I'm a lushy. [00:03:52] Speaker B: Alright. [00:03:53] Speaker C: Previously on the Cracked Die podcast. [00:03:56] Speaker H: Our heroes finished dealing with the Pendergast brothers after sending one down the river and one to search for his brother. Our heroes decided to explore the ruins and find out why they were trying to destroy it. Finding information about the indigenous people that lived here, our heroes managed to discredit Gerhard. After a long day, our heroes decided to camp in the ruins. Watches seem to be going fine until silver was approached by some figures. What will happen to Silver? Will the rest of the party know about it? Find out the answers to these questions and more on this episode of the Cracked Die podcast. [00:04:40] Speaker B: So just to make sure that I'm on the same page with everyone, I have the watches and surprise attacks section pulled up already. [00:04:52] Speaker G: Sounds like what happened here. [00:04:53] Speaker F: How does that work? Do you want to? [00:04:56] Speaker B: If a surprise encounter would occur during rest, you can roll a die to randomly determine which character is on watch at the time. We already know that all characters roll initiative sleeping for being unconscious. They don't automatically wake up when rolling initiative, but they might roll a perception check to wake up at the start of their turn due to noise. If a savvy enemy waits for a particularly vulnerable character to take watch before attacking, the attack can happen on that character's watch automatically. However, you might have the ambusher attempt a stealth check against the perception DC's of all the characters to see if anyone notices its approach. So we're all gonna roll initiative. Very exciting. [00:05:41] Speaker F: I rolled prematurely. [00:05:44] Speaker B: Happens to you, I understand. [00:05:48] Speaker E: Oh, baby. [00:05:49] Speaker F: Well done. [00:05:51] Speaker B: Whoo. Pond watcher with a 30. [00:05:54] Speaker E: 30? [00:05:54] Speaker F: Heck yeah. [00:05:55] Speaker B: It's a shame you're asleep, but you know. Well, it's okay. [00:06:01] Speaker C: You know, I rolled a four. I got a 17. [00:06:04] Speaker G: I rolled a natural two. [00:06:06] Speaker B: All right, so twin Talon has a 17 like you just said. [00:06:11] Speaker D: I don't know why it rolled mine twice, but I have a 25. [00:06:14] Speaker B: Silver rolled a 14 perception. And temid, you rolled a 16 perception. I just want to point out, even though you rolled a two, you have a better perception bonus. And silver dust. Oh, goodness. [00:06:29] Speaker C: Better initiative too. [00:06:30] Speaker B: Yeah. And then let me roll for these lovely, lovely folk. [00:06:38] Speaker G: I disagree there. [00:06:39] Speaker E: I don't believe that. [00:06:40] Speaker D: Lovely. [00:06:41] Speaker B: Yeah, you don't know about them. [00:06:44] Speaker C: We don't know their life yet. [00:06:46] Speaker B: Yeah, you don't know their life story, their unlife. Pond watcher, you're going to go first. Great. Pond watcher, your first. [00:06:55] Speaker E: I'm sleeping. [00:06:56] Speaker B: Give me a perception versus their stealth DC, which I have stealth DC. So give me a perception for your first action. [00:07:07] Speaker E: Okay. 29. [00:07:09] Speaker C: Nice. [00:07:10] Speaker B: So you hear rustling from the trees that isn't normal. So that wakes you up. [00:07:18] Speaker E: Hello. He jumps up, looks around, you see silver, I guess kind of just like, fiddling with something and. Yeah, I don't know. Does he see any people? [00:07:34] Speaker B: With the 29, you definitely see some shadows playing to your right. And you also hear rustling from the bushes in front of you. [00:07:46] Speaker E: Okay, so he stood up and now he's just gonna say, silver, what is that? Do you hear something, everyone? [00:07:53] Speaker B: Well, I think there's some people here and they don't look too friendly. [00:08:01] Speaker E: Okay, so he's right next to Saraya intended. He's just gonna kick them. [00:08:05] Speaker B: Okay. Hey. [00:08:09] Speaker E: And then he's just gonna yell, hey, you. Who's that? [00:08:12] Speaker B: Look at you in the bush. [00:08:14] Speaker E: And that's probably all you can do. Really? [00:08:16] Speaker B: Yeah. So after that, the one that is kind of perched up on the wall jumps down and attempts to. Oh, there's so many options right now. Attempts to claw at silver. The creature rolls 18 total. Silver has a 21 ac. So the first claw misses and goes for a second claw, which is less so. Misses. Silver kind of like drops something out of his hands and bends down as the creature swings two claws at him. Saraya. [00:09:02] Speaker F: Perfect. [00:09:03] Speaker B: I feel like. I feel like silver is like a drunken master. Like he accidentally dodges out of the way of things all the time. Serea, you've just been kicked. So go ahead and make your perception check with a plus two to wake up. [00:09:23] Speaker D: That's a 22 to wake up. [00:09:25] Speaker B: You're good. [00:09:26] Speaker D: All right. [00:09:27] Speaker B: Ow. [00:09:28] Speaker D: What? What is going on? And I guess you'll notice the commotion. [00:09:33] Speaker B: It's an ambush. [00:09:35] Speaker D: No. Our darling GM. Here's a question for you. I don't think I have any of my alchemical resources, do I? Because I haven't made daily preparations. [00:09:44] Speaker B: Correct. [00:09:45] Speaker D: Shit. Um, I guess I'm gonna do something I've actually never really done before. And all I can really do is I have. I have my cantrips, so I'm going to use. I'm not even actually going to get up because I don't have to, but I'm going to use telekinetic projectile. [00:10:07] Speaker B: Okay. [00:10:08] Speaker D: And just wing things at them. [00:10:11] Speaker B: Okay. You actually don't see anyone from that side in the bushes, so you could attempt to seek action to try and find what's rustling, or you can get up and move and go help silver. [00:10:29] Speaker D: Um, how tall the walls, I assume are like 10ft tall or something? [00:10:33] Speaker B: Yes. Yeah. [00:10:34] Speaker D: Okay, so I get getting up is an action, I assume? [00:10:38] Speaker B: Yes. [00:10:42] Speaker D: Can I see through here? Can I, like, see this guy through. [00:10:44] Speaker B: This, uh, yes, you can see them. They are short. They are, I would say, size category small. Okay, interesting. They look humanoid. [00:10:58] Speaker D: Um, so, sadly, I believe it's a two action cantrip. [00:11:01] Speaker C: We've already taken three actions. [00:11:03] Speaker D: Wake up and moved. [00:11:04] Speaker B: Got up and moved. You woke up. [00:11:07] Speaker C: Stand up. [00:11:08] Speaker B: Yeah. [00:11:09] Speaker D: All right, so I get. I will say, start prepping for my next turn. [00:11:12] Speaker B: Yes. She gets to her feet and figure out what's going on around her from out of almost nowhere. [00:11:20] Speaker C: Another one. [00:11:22] Speaker B: See another one pop up from behind you, Saraya. And it decides to swing at you. Swing. [00:11:31] Speaker D: Lovely. [00:11:32] Speaker B: 24 versus your ac. That will hit. All right. I wasn't expecting. Expecting that. [00:11:38] Speaker D: 24. I'm not like a tanky character. [00:11:42] Speaker C: Even our tanky characters in their armor, I think 24 would hit at this point. [00:11:45] Speaker B: So you take 13 points of slashing damage and you are grabbed. [00:11:52] Speaker D: Oh, shit. [00:11:53] Speaker B: Okay. Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot one other thing. Take another five points of damage. What kind slashing? [00:12:00] Speaker C: Is it from a different source, or is it just that his effect should have done? [00:12:04] Speaker B: Or no sneak attack because you didn't know they were there? I have poison resistance. I just wanted to make sure. No, that's fair. That's fair. What is your fortitude? DC. So that's your fortitude modifier. Plus ten. [00:12:19] Speaker D: I'm just making sure everything. So I'm an expert in fortitude. So here. Lab says plus 14. [00:12:25] Speaker B: So is that correct or 14 plus ten? So 24. [00:12:29] Speaker D: 24. [00:12:30] Speaker B: Okay, so this thing, since you're grabbed by it, it starts to try. It brings its mouth towards your neck, but you manage to squirm out of the way as it tries to bite. [00:12:44] Speaker C: You gotta ask for consent. Can't just go in for. [00:12:49] Speaker D: Christine is all about this. I don't know if Sarah is or not. [00:12:54] Speaker B: Yeah, yep, yep. 510 15 2025. Yeah. 25 and then 510 15. And then it takes a swing. Swing at silver. Another one appears and starts to swing at silver, who is now flanked. [00:13:14] Speaker C: Wild Empire appears. [00:13:16] Speaker B: This time it does hit silver hits silver for 13 points of damage. And he is grabbed by the one behind him. [00:13:32] Speaker F: Oh, no, he's not. Wait, wait, wait. Hold on. [00:13:34] Speaker B: Are you awake? You're asleep. [00:13:37] Speaker F: No, and it's too far anyway. Okay, you can only do 15ft. [00:13:42] Speaker B: You're asleep. [00:13:43] Speaker G: No, she got kicked. [00:13:45] Speaker B: I'm gonna put the little hand symbol on here that says you're grabbed. Or Kalima. I'm not quite sure which one it is. [00:13:57] Speaker C: I don't know. His heart. [00:13:58] Speaker F: Oh, planet. I don't know what's happening. [00:14:02] Speaker B: And since everyone's asleep, here. Except for pawn watcher there. All right, so that's two movements and an attack at pond watcher. [00:14:11] Speaker E: Bring it on, baby. [00:14:12] Speaker B: 27 versus your ac. [00:14:14] Speaker E: Yeah, that'll hit. [00:14:16] Speaker B: All right. I don't think it gets the sneak attack on you. [00:14:20] Speaker E: That is correct. It does not get sneak attack. [00:14:22] Speaker B: Eight points of slashing damage as a claw digs into your flesh. Not. [00:14:27] Speaker F: Okay. [00:14:28] Speaker E: Ow. [00:14:29] Speaker F: Briena, I want to wake up. [00:14:33] Speaker B: You're in commotion perception. [00:14:35] Speaker F: Perception 27. [00:14:39] Speaker B: Yes. So. So between the jambalaya filled mouth of silver, Saraya moving around and pond watcher getting scratched by this creature, you wake up. [00:14:55] Speaker F: What is happening? [00:14:55] Speaker B: Remember, you are not wearing. You're not wearing your armor. Cause you are asleep. [00:14:59] Speaker F: As long as I'm not naked. Like that one time, she notices that her dear friend is in trouble over here. So she's gonna step forward and take a wing. She's going to raise her scimitar move or pick up her scimitar movement. [00:15:23] Speaker B: Swing. [00:15:23] Speaker F: Is that possible? [00:15:24] Speaker B: No, you can't swing this turn, but you can move up there. [00:15:27] Speaker F: Oh, because I have to get up first. My bad. Okay, I'll move. [00:15:29] Speaker B: Wait. [00:15:30] Speaker C: Well, even doing the perception just to wake up is an action, right? So wake up and then standing up is an action. And picking up the sword is an action. Okay, so getting ambush when you're sleeping sucks. [00:15:41] Speaker F: I mean, it makes sense. [00:15:42] Speaker C: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Absolutely. [00:15:44] Speaker F: All right, well, I'll be ready to move for next time. [00:15:47] Speaker B: All right, so from the trees here, you see a single bat, a flavor bat, if you will, flap to the ground. [00:15:57] Speaker G: What flavor is the bat? [00:15:59] Speaker C: Blood butt flavored. What? [00:16:01] Speaker B: What? And it flies and lands here and then goes 510 15. 2025. Towards Briena. And then swings its claw at you for a 16. [00:16:20] Speaker F: Remind me, how many points do I not have? Now, wearing armor, just. [00:16:27] Speaker E: You can just unequip your armor. That's the easiest way. [00:16:30] Speaker F: On hero lab. [00:16:32] Speaker B: I think you're down six. [00:16:35] Speaker C: Well, maybe, but think is like, you're. You're. [00:16:39] Speaker E: So. [00:16:39] Speaker C: My ac naked is 22, but my dex is very high. [00:16:45] Speaker B: All right. And now the second claw at you for 15. Even less. Yep, yep, yep. Twin talon perception piece. [00:16:56] Speaker C: All right. 1313. [00:17:00] Speaker B: So that doesn't even beat their stealth. [00:17:03] Speaker C: So I would argue that pond watcher is yelling. [00:17:06] Speaker B: And that's true. [00:17:07] Speaker C: I should be rolling. [00:17:08] Speaker B: Yeah, you might say 13 is not. [00:17:10] Speaker C: Enough, but I think that's what we should. [00:17:12] Speaker B: Yes. Yeah. Well, I'll give you a point plus. Well, a plus two to that, because that's what I'm giving with the noise and everything. I'll still say a 15 is not enough to wake up. So you kind of just, like, hear it, and you're like, uh. And you pull the pillow over your head a little bit more and roll away. You can attempt again if you'd like. [00:17:35] Speaker C: Can I? Okay. Yeah, I guess I'll keep doing that. [00:17:39] Speaker B: Yeah. There you go. So finally, the clattering and the noise is too much for you, and you wake up and you see a creature right next to you. [00:17:49] Speaker C: So Twigtalon is going to use quick draw to quick draw his short sword out of a sheath and swipe at the creature's ankles. [00:18:00] Speaker B: Okay. [00:18:01] Speaker C: I do get a negative two because I am prone, but to. That's what now we do the first time. 21, actually. It cancels out. So they're flat footed to me, but I get a negative two. So it's 21. [00:18:16] Speaker B: 21, you hit their ankles. [00:18:20] Speaker C: Okay, so that's nine regular plus, I mean, are they, can they be snuck attack? [00:18:26] Speaker B: Yes. [00:18:26] Speaker C: Sneak attack. So it's seven additional sneak attack damage. So 16 total. [00:18:32] Speaker B: Great. So 16 damage. And you hear this. This one looks medium sized, by the way they hiss as you slice into their leg. Temid. [00:18:48] Speaker E: Sean, can I. Can I interject for a second? [00:18:51] Speaker B: Yes. [00:18:52] Speaker E: I think I misspoke in that I can be hit with sneak attack. I just. I'm not flat footed in sneak attack, so I should take that extra damage. [00:19:00] Speaker C: Well, flat foot is typically what gives them sneak attack. [00:19:03] Speaker B: Yes. [00:19:04] Speaker E: Really? [00:19:05] Speaker B: Yeah. Yeah. [00:19:06] Speaker C: So people are flat footed to me when I flank them, or people are flat footed when you flank them, which. And then if they're a rogue, if it's the same ability you get sneak attack when someone's flat footed to you. So if you never become flat footed, then sneak attack wouldn't change. [00:19:21] Speaker E: Awesome. [00:19:21] Speaker D: Cool. [00:19:22] Speaker B: Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. No problem. Tenet. [00:19:25] Speaker G: All right, so rolls an 18 total perception to see if he can wake up or so that I can see if he can wake up with your. [00:19:33] Speaker B: Plus two from everyone yelling and hissing and all that. That is a 20. So you wake up. [00:19:38] Speaker G: All right. So he wakes up and he immediately sees in front of him this weird looking humanoid creature trying to either make out with or bite twin Talon. Either way, he's upset. [00:19:55] Speaker B: He's jealous. [00:19:56] Speaker G: Super jealous. I don't know if that's how you say it, but whatever. Okay, so he's gonna, with his other two actions without getting up, he's going to cast searing light against this creature. Do you know if it's a fiend or undead? [00:20:18] Speaker C: Certainly seems undead. [00:20:20] Speaker B: Yeah. [00:20:21] Speaker G: But I don't want to make any assumptions? [00:20:22] Speaker B: Let's say it is. Let's just, for funsies, say it is. [00:20:28] Speaker G: So let me just make sure I get this right. It's gonna be a d 20, plus twelve. [00:20:34] Speaker B: Ah. [00:20:36] Speaker C: Is this your attack roll? [00:20:38] Speaker G: This is my attack roll. [00:20:39] Speaker C: So it's minus two from being prone. [00:20:41] Speaker G: Wait, even though it's a spell prone. [00:20:44] Speaker C: Just literally says minus two to all attacks. [00:20:49] Speaker G: To all attack. Okay. Damn it. [00:20:51] Speaker B: So a twelve versus their ac. [00:20:54] Speaker G: Yeah, that's not gonna do anything. [00:20:56] Speaker B: Searing light shines and goes towards them, and it kind of, like, fades as it gets closer and closer, as if the darkness swallows it. [00:21:06] Speaker G: I like to think of it as he just kind of, like, is still bleary eyed, and he just shoots it off into the distance like a signal player. [00:21:15] Speaker D: Just straight. Straight up, like a warning shot. [00:21:19] Speaker B: Gondor. Coles, frayed. [00:21:21] Speaker G: I don't have any. He's like, I don't have any more of these, but just so you know, I could do that tomorrow. If you wait tomorrow 24 hours, I. [00:21:32] Speaker B: Could do that again. [00:21:35] Speaker G: All right, that's. That's my turn. [00:21:37] Speaker B: I swear, this never happens. Okay, so, dice, I just want you. [00:21:43] Speaker G: Guys to know, I hate dice. [00:21:44] Speaker B: I hate them so much. [00:21:45] Speaker D: Uh huh. [00:21:46] Speaker B: 2025. [00:21:48] Speaker C: So, just so listeners aren't keeping track here, there are six of them. [00:21:51] Speaker B: Yep. Yes. [00:21:52] Speaker D: Silver and twin challenge are both flanked. [00:21:55] Speaker C: Well, luckily, flanking doesn't do anything. Flanked? [00:21:57] Speaker F: Well, that's. [00:21:58] Speaker C: I am immune to magnified. [00:22:00] Speaker B: But you are on the ground. [00:22:02] Speaker C: Doesn't matter. [00:22:02] Speaker B: Doesn't do anything either. [00:22:03] Speaker C: Well, being prone messes with my AC, I'm pretty sure. [00:22:08] Speaker B: Does it? It's double checked. Oh. [00:22:10] Speaker D: You know, not to rewind here, but, Anwar, you've got a hero point, don't you? [00:22:17] Speaker G: No, I used him. [00:22:19] Speaker B: He used all of his hero points. [00:22:20] Speaker G: But don't I get one every session? [00:22:23] Speaker B: No. Yes. [00:22:25] Speaker G: I'm not gonna go back. I'm not gonna go back and redo it. [00:22:27] Speaker B: Moments downplay. [00:22:29] Speaker C: Okay, so it doesn't mess with your ac specifically. It just gives you the flat footed condition. But I'm pretty sure I can't be caught flat footed, so let me just double check with that ability. Deny advantage. As someone who takes advantage of others defenses, you are careful not to leave such openings for yourself. You aren't flat footed to hidden, undetected, or flying flanking creatures of your level or lower. Or creatures of your level or lower using surprise attack. However, they can still help their allies flank, so it doesn't make me immune to being flat footed from being prone. [00:22:59] Speaker B: Okay, so you. You take the minus. So you're flat footed, which means take a negative two. Negative two. [00:23:05] Speaker C: And because I'm flat footed, they can sneak attack me. [00:23:08] Speaker B: So 26 hit you. [00:23:10] Speaker C: Yes. [00:23:11] Speaker B: Okay, so the 26 hits you as you are slashed across the face. No. The moneymaker for 14 points of slashing damage. And you are now the ravages joke. [00:23:23] Speaker F: No, he's not. Oh, he's not grabbed. [00:23:25] Speaker D: Oh, she's close enough for him. [00:23:27] Speaker C: Yeah, and she's awake. [00:23:30] Speaker B: More importantly, she's conscious, so negated plus. [00:23:35] Speaker F: Oh, wait, hang on, hang on. I have a shining o, which gives us extra fun things against undead. [00:23:42] Speaker C: Sweet. [00:23:43] Speaker F: If you use your liberating step, triggered by an undead, your ally gains a plus four circumstance. Bonus checks wrench by your liberating step. And the ally can step twice afterwards. [00:23:55] Speaker B: Does that mean you can crawl twice as well? [00:23:58] Speaker C: I guess the step action. I don't know what that means, but it does mean that if I'm grabbed, her liberating step, not only does it reduce my. What is it? By your level or level plus something? [00:24:10] Speaker D: Great question. [00:24:11] Speaker C: We haven't used this in a while. Surprisingly. [00:24:15] Speaker B: Two plus your level. [00:24:17] Speaker F: You free an ally from restraint, but. [00:24:20] Speaker C: It gives me damage reduction to the attack. Two plus your level, which. [00:24:24] Speaker F: Yes. [00:24:25] Speaker C: And how much damage did it do? [00:24:27] Speaker B: 714. [00:24:29] Speaker C: Okay, so that takes six damage, which is way better. And I get a free recheck to un grab a five plus four plus four. [00:24:39] Speaker B: Yep, take it. [00:24:41] Speaker C: So does a 35 get me out? [00:24:43] Speaker B: Yes. Yes, it does. [00:24:44] Speaker C: Fuck off, vampires. [00:24:46] Speaker B: All right, and now you may step twice. [00:24:48] Speaker E: So I cannot step. [00:24:49] Speaker C: However, it does get me ungrounded, which is super helpful. [00:24:52] Speaker B: Yes. [00:24:53] Speaker C: And it was like, damage. [00:24:55] Speaker D: Yay. [00:24:56] Speaker F: I helped. [00:24:58] Speaker C: Awesome. [00:25:00] Speaker B: So after that creature, the grab. Silver, the bard, tries to break the grab. [00:25:10] Speaker F: Come on, silver. [00:25:12] Speaker B: Well, um. Let me go. What he says. [00:25:19] Speaker C: Is that the entirety of him. [00:25:21] Speaker B: Wow. [00:25:21] Speaker E: Do they do oscars? Do they do oscars for podcasts? [00:25:24] Speaker B: Yeah, I hope so. Silver rolls a 20 versus the. He actually breaks out. Yeah. Go, silver. [00:25:37] Speaker F: Nice. [00:25:38] Speaker B: I am shocked. [00:25:40] Speaker G: I'm not. [00:25:41] Speaker B: And then he reaches out and goes, well, if you're gonna try and do that to me, I'm gonna. I'm gonna do it to you. Casses cast casts it. He casts vampiric touch versus his. [00:25:56] Speaker G: And it's also a signature spell. [00:25:58] Speaker B: It is. [00:26:00] Speaker F: What? [00:26:01] Speaker D: Okay, keep going. [00:26:02] Speaker F: Sorry. [00:26:03] Speaker B: Versus their fortitude save. Ooh, they don't have very good fortitude save. I should have looked at this before I did it. [00:26:12] Speaker D: Too late. [00:26:13] Speaker B: They fail. [00:26:15] Speaker F: Oh, snap. [00:26:16] Speaker B: However, it does no effect. [00:26:19] Speaker C: I was gonna stop you. If you try to do anything with it. [00:26:22] Speaker B: Yeah. Nope. Does nothing. And he looks confused and scared. [00:26:28] Speaker F: Understandable. [00:26:28] Speaker D: Yeah. [00:26:29] Speaker B: Pond watcher. [00:26:31] Speaker E: So, I guess, would I be wearing my. My cinder claw gauntlet while I was asleep? Probably not sharp. [00:26:41] Speaker B: You gotta, like, swat a fly in the middle of the night. You cause damage to your. [00:26:47] Speaker E: So assuming he's, you know, just wearing his nightie time pajamas. [00:26:53] Speaker B: They are. [00:26:54] Speaker E: Okay. [00:26:54] Speaker B: They are footy pajamas. [00:26:56] Speaker E: He definitely sleeps, like, just in underwear. [00:27:00] Speaker D: So I was gonna say, can you describe his nighty time pajamas? [00:27:03] Speaker E: It's like. It's like booty shorts, but they have little, like, stars and moons on them. Okay, so he. He picks up his halberd off the ground, and he says, watch out. We are being ambushed, and he's going to rage. [00:27:20] Speaker D: Nice. [00:27:20] Speaker E: Okay, and then he's going to swing this halberd at the one right next to him for a 28. [00:27:26] Speaker B: That'll hit. [00:27:27] Speaker E: Okay, so that does 13 piercing damage and four cold damage. [00:27:35] Speaker F: Oh, wow. [00:27:36] Speaker B: Wow. Nice. [00:27:37] Speaker G: Nice. [00:27:38] Speaker B: That one does not look very happy with everything. [00:27:42] Speaker E: And then to end his turn, he'll just yell, silver, are you okay over there, buddy? [00:27:46] Speaker B: Well, no. The one in front of silver will swing to try and grab him again. [00:27:55] Speaker F: Get back here, you squirrely old man. [00:27:59] Speaker B: Exactly. [00:28:00] Speaker C: Thank you, blah. [00:28:01] Speaker F: You're welcome. [00:28:01] Speaker B: Blah. That will crit. [00:28:07] Speaker C: It doesn't have a name, right? [00:28:09] Speaker B: It does. They. [00:28:10] Speaker G: Do they each have names, or do they have. [00:28:13] Speaker F: Each. [00:28:14] Speaker B: Each have them have a name? [00:28:16] Speaker C: Vampire one, vampire two, vampire three. [00:28:20] Speaker B: No, this is the one that is shorter. You would say a small creature is the gnome. Possibly. They rolled a 17 on the die, which gives them a 31 to Silver's ac of 21. [00:28:37] Speaker G: Why are you giving us all this information? [00:28:40] Speaker B: Why? [00:28:40] Speaker D: Because. [00:28:41] Speaker C: Afraid. [00:28:42] Speaker B: Yeah, exactly. Crit hit death. Deal. One. I don't think I've ever. I mean, I have in the past, but haven't drawn a card in a long time. [00:28:52] Speaker C: Almost. Your creatures are nameless mooks or so. [00:28:56] Speaker B: That's true. That's true. Well, triple damage and the target is a fatigue. [00:29:07] Speaker C: I feel like the triple damage with an extra trait is just like insult, danger. You're dead, and your shoelaces are untied. Super. [00:29:20] Speaker E: Funeral is gonna be so embarrassing. [00:29:26] Speaker B: So I rolled an eight on a d eight. So Max damage, which is 14 times three, is 42 points of damage, and he is go rabbit in it. [00:29:46] Speaker F: Is he alive? [00:29:49] Speaker B: He is. Yes, he is alive. [00:29:55] Speaker G: Easy. [00:29:55] Speaker C: Kanji is probably close. [00:29:57] Speaker B: He is at one hit point. Oh, shit. Because Silver has 43 hit points, so he's grabbed. That was the first action. Then let's you see the creature bite into his neck? [00:30:21] Speaker F: No. [00:30:25] Speaker B: He can. I do make a check against Silver's fortitude. So I'm gonna peel back the curtain here a little bit. [00:30:37] Speaker C: Does he have to make an attack roller just automatically? [00:30:40] Speaker B: As long as he's grabbed. So I make an athletics check against the victim's fortitude DC. Yes. So if the victim is grabbed, it reduces the DC by two. So Silver's fortitude is ten, plus ten is 20. Minus two, minus two. So 18. I'm gonna roll this out in front of everyone. 16. Oh, my God. So Silver, with his remaining scrambling Riley old ability, is still wiggling enough to get out of the way. [00:31:29] Speaker C: What he doesn't know is Silver's blood's all dried up, so good luck. [00:31:34] Speaker F: Why is this powder? [00:31:35] Speaker D: Sorry. [00:31:36] Speaker B: So the creature, then, who is holding Silver shoves him. What? Away from the group. [00:31:48] Speaker G: Shoves him away from the group, you said. [00:31:50] Speaker B: No, he doesn't. Silver manages to stay in place. [00:31:54] Speaker G: Silver's a man. [00:31:57] Speaker C: Luckiest person on the planet. That's why he's 80 years old. Old. [00:32:00] Speaker B: Saraya, you're up. [00:32:02] Speaker D: She is gravitated. [00:32:04] Speaker B: She is gravitated. [00:32:05] Speaker D: This guy is trying to go over her neck. I'm assuming we have, like, a campfire. [00:32:11] Speaker B: Yes, let's put a campfire. I'll put a campfire off. [00:32:15] Speaker E: The edification, I do like the fact that we were just sleeping on, like, concrete instead of grass. [00:32:24] Speaker D: I bring a bedroll. [00:32:25] Speaker B: I don't know about you, I haven't. [00:32:28] Speaker E: Had a bedroll in weeks. I mean, I just, like, left it somewhere, bro. [00:32:30] Speaker B: It's true. [00:32:31] Speaker D: That sounds very, very bondy. [00:32:33] Speaker G: But I also like the fact that Saraya is trying really hard not to get bitten by the vampire. And Christine is trying really hard to, like, play Surya. She doesn't want to get bitten by a vampire. [00:32:45] Speaker D: Look, I can separate, you know, my character from. So telekinetic projectile says that I hurl a loose, unattended object that is within range, which is 30ft. I am just within 30ft of this thing. I just want to, like, grab a flaming log. [00:33:05] Speaker B: So unfortunately, you are down 10ft because of the steps and that half circle, like, used to be a tower. So you can't actually see the wanted. [00:33:17] Speaker D: To, like, destroy my plans because you know what they were. [00:33:20] Speaker B: Yes. [00:33:22] Speaker D: Okay, well, I am gonna say that because Soraya is used to dealing with wild animals and shit, she does sleep with her dagger on her belt. So she's gonna try and just stab this guy. [00:33:34] Speaker B: So does that prevent you from doing. [00:33:38] Speaker D: Things I would hope not. [00:33:40] Speaker B: No. You are flat footed and immobilized. Right. [00:33:44] Speaker C: She can't. She can't take move actions. [00:33:47] Speaker B: Right. Move tricks. [00:33:48] Speaker D: But it's not a still draw, right? [00:33:52] Speaker B: Correct. [00:33:52] Speaker C: That's a manipulate action. It would. It would incur an attack of opportunity if someone was around that could do that, but yeah. [00:34:00] Speaker D: So she's gonna draw her dagger, stab with her dagger. [00:34:04] Speaker B: Okay, they can roll and roll. [00:34:06] Speaker D: Nine was gonna miss. [00:34:08] Speaker B: Nine will. [00:34:12] Speaker C: Critically. [00:34:13] Speaker D: Oh, shit. [00:34:14] Speaker B: I had to double check their ac. [00:34:16] Speaker D: All right, let me draw my critical fail. [00:34:18] Speaker E: You just cut yourself in the neck and you're like, oh, no. [00:34:24] Speaker D: Unintentional melee. You deal. They attack normal damage to your armor, which I'm not wearing. Applying hardness. Okay, so I'm not wearing any armor. [00:34:37] Speaker B: Yep. You have one more action. [00:34:38] Speaker C: So just FYI, for future reference, if you're grabbed an attempt to manipulate action, you need to succeed at a DC five flat check or you lose the action. [00:34:48] Speaker D: Okay. Nice to have her. [00:34:51] Speaker B: You already had enough failure on that. [00:34:56] Speaker D: Wouldn'T have mattered here anyway. She's gonna command Jasper for her last turn. Okay, um, he has two actions now. Yes. I think he's gonna dive bomb this guy. [00:35:09] Speaker B: Okay, do you have a character sheet for Casper? [00:35:15] Speaker D: I do. [00:35:16] Speaker B: Okay. [00:35:17] Speaker D: Uh, hero lab is great like that. Um, the only thing, I think, it doesn't expressly give him an attack, but I know they can do that. Attack is an action you can command them to do. Yeah, I guess I don't. How do the attack actions? [00:35:33] Speaker C: Players typically don't attack. [00:35:35] Speaker B: Yeah. [00:35:36] Speaker D: Okay. [00:35:36] Speaker C: Animal companions. That's their bag. [00:35:40] Speaker D: Oh, goodness. [00:35:41] Speaker C: We are around you and give you additional abilities. [00:35:44] Speaker D: Um, can I have Jasper use an action to, or even both of his actions to. To shed the extra batch of reagents? He used me every day. [00:35:54] Speaker B: Uh, sure. [00:35:56] Speaker D: Okay, so he'll do that. [00:36:00] Speaker B: All right, you all. So if anyone was still asleep. They're not asleep anymore. As you feel the ground start to rumble, shake. Why, why, why? And you start to see the tree shudder. [00:36:22] Speaker C: Since we started for this to be it. And we'll see next week. [00:36:25] Speaker B: Nope. And that. You hear the trees starting to fall. [00:36:34] Speaker F: Like this. [00:36:35] Speaker C: It's an elephant. [00:36:36] Speaker B: As a large humanoid creature comes out. [00:36:42] Speaker C: Of the woods where it's not an elephant. Yes, we helped them and this would be a great time for them to show up. [00:36:49] Speaker B: So I'm gonna say they used one action to move here. And you see them grab silver. Attempt to grab silver. Hang on, Wrigley. Old man just keeps getting out of everything, right? Natural one. Shit. So this giant, literal giant reaches down to grab silver. And he is still grabbed, by the way. He's still grabbed and he just kind of like leans a little bit with and the hand just swipes by him. [00:37:27] Speaker C: So grapple is an attack action. [00:37:30] Speaker B: Oh. So criticalness. Uh huh. Let me. Oh, that's a critical. Sorry. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Let me deal one critical bit to myself. And this is a mealy butter fingers. Actually, this is an unarmed. So I'm torn muscle. Nice until healed. I have enfeebled the one. [00:37:56] Speaker F: Oh, jeez. [00:37:58] Speaker E: Wow. [00:38:00] Speaker B: So this giant reaches down and you just see his shoulder dislocate as he tries to grab silver and is unable to grab the already grabbed old man. [00:38:14] Speaker D: This combat is not going the way. Sean. [00:38:21] Speaker G: I'm starting to like dice again. [00:38:23] Speaker B: Alright, let's just give a quick update real quick. There are 123-4567 of these creatures, one of which is large, which means it takes up a two by two square. Silver is grabbed. Saraya is grabbed. Twin Talon is lying on the floor. Brianna has stood up and drawn her weapon. Temmin has shot a beam of light at something and missed completely. And pond watcher just annihilated this one creature. But it's still standing. Barely. I hit it too. You did? You cut its Achilles weakness. So the one that is grabbing Saraya. [00:39:04] Speaker D: Yes. [00:39:05] Speaker B: Attempts to bite you. This has gone so well for me so far. So what is your fortitude, DC again? It's ten plus your. So 20 you said, right? 24 minus two because you're flat footed. [00:39:18] Speaker D: 22. [00:39:19] Speaker C: 22 flat footed affects the Ford ATC. [00:39:22] Speaker B: Oh no, it doesn't. Doesn't matter. I roll a 20 again to peel back the curtain. I have a plus eleven on this. [00:39:31] Speaker G: Nine's not a bad roll. [00:39:32] Speaker C: Nine's slightly below average. [00:39:35] Speaker B: It's ok. Nine. It's fine. Try it again. [00:39:40] Speaker C: Don't crunch. [00:39:42] Speaker B: 16 misses again. All right, so with its last action, it's so mad it's just going to claw at you. Note. Eleven. [00:40:03] Speaker C: Yeah. Critical miss. Nice. [00:40:09] Speaker B: I regret naming all of them. [00:40:11] Speaker D: That is the highest he can roll and still critically missed. [00:40:14] Speaker B: So I will take it. [00:40:16] Speaker C: I think it's actually probably lower than that. That's his third attack in a round. Means it's a negative ten. [00:40:23] Speaker B: Yeah, it is. No, that's. That's the third attack modifier. [00:40:28] Speaker C: Oh, okay. So third attack modifier is plus six. [00:40:33] Speaker B: Twisted up. You are encumbered until you spend two interact actions to free yourself. So it swings at you and somehow gets caught in your armor and then like it's just stuck. Like it can't move. [00:40:48] Speaker F: That's amazing. [00:40:49] Speaker B: All right. The one sur. The other, the one that doesn't have silver grapple. Attempts to grapple silver. How hard can this be? 29. Silver is now grappled twice. [00:41:05] Speaker D: Oh my God. [00:41:06] Speaker G: Is that possible? [00:41:07] Speaker D: No. [00:41:07] Speaker C: There's joined. I don't know about second vision. First vision. It's joining the grapple. [00:41:12] Speaker B: Yeah. [00:41:13] Speaker C: More people that are doing it, the easier it becomes for everyone who's grappling. [00:41:16] Speaker D: In figure at this point, one has his arms, one has his legs. [00:41:20] Speaker G: It's kind of like when you're hugging someone and then someone else comes in and hugs the two of you. [00:41:25] Speaker B: Yeah, group hug. [00:41:28] Speaker E: Maybe that's what they're doing. [00:41:29] Speaker B: Yeah, group hug. And he's going to. [00:41:31] Speaker G: I'm just trying to give him ideas, honestly. [00:41:33] Speaker B: And bite silver again. The DC for this is 20. Yes. I rolled two. That's an eight. That's a critical miss. I'm just. [00:41:52] Speaker E: Where did you find these guys. [00:41:59] Speaker B: Unarmed. Ingrown nail. You take a minus one circumstance penalty to attack rolls until you score a critical hit. Alright, next up is the one that Hanwatcher and twin Talon have done a lot. Damaged him. You see that some of the wounds close up and they are going to take a swing at you. Pond Watcher 20. [00:42:38] Speaker E: That is a hit because I'm raging. [00:42:40] Speaker B: Oh, wow. Okay. I'm not used to hearing hit. I'm now going seven points of damage. Slashing damage. And you are grabbing. It's going to try and bite you. Gonna try real hard. 21 versus your fortitude. [00:43:03] Speaker D: DC. [00:43:05] Speaker E: That does not succeed. [00:43:07] Speaker B: Okay, so he goes to nibble on your neck and whisper sweet nothing's, nothing happens. You squirm out of the way. Alright, I'm pulling out the big guns now. Another one. [00:43:26] Speaker G: What the hell? [00:43:28] Speaker D: Apparently silver did some vampire like real wrong because like four of them around him now. Five if you count the one that's just off to the side. [00:43:38] Speaker C: Maybe he also took told them that their race had steel in hands. [00:43:46] Speaker F: Wait, maybe this is his previous group. Guys. [00:43:50] Speaker D: They were just all vampires now and. [00:43:54] Speaker F: He got away so clearly they just want revenge. [00:43:59] Speaker B: Keith. This one that just shows up and moves around silver, attempts to bite him and rolls a three. [00:44:09] Speaker G: Just, just let him tank it guys. Like he's. He'll be fine. [00:44:12] Speaker B: Oh jeez. Rolls a three. [00:44:16] Speaker C: Well at least it's not a critical failure. [00:44:19] Speaker B: No. Total of 14. Oh yeah, you're right. It's not a critical failure. For once. [00:44:24] Speaker E: Okay, wait, isn't silver from the mana wastes? Isn't that like bull bun dead. [00:44:31] Speaker B: I feel like maybe that. [00:44:32] Speaker C: I don't know that that's why they're coming up. [00:44:35] Speaker B: Yeah, he's going. This one is so mad, it's just going to swing at silver for a. 22 with a claw that will hit. [00:44:44] Speaker C: One hit point left. [00:44:45] Speaker B: I think he's unconscious for eight points of slashing damage. And, yes, Silver is now unconscious and dying. So here's. Here's a thought. [00:44:56] Speaker G: If he dies to one of these things, does he become one of those things? [00:45:00] Speaker C: You're the cleric. [00:45:03] Speaker G: I say no. [00:45:04] Speaker B: Tell us no. Another one comes out of the trees and picks up his lifeless body and puffs it onto his shoulder. And. 1015, honey hunt. He's off the. So it's running away with Silver's body. [00:45:25] Speaker C: I call shenanigans. [00:45:27] Speaker F: I also call shenanigans. [00:45:29] Speaker B: Oh. [00:45:32] Speaker F: Was that three actions? [00:45:34] Speaker B: Yes. [00:45:37] Speaker F: I'm trying, guys. [00:45:38] Speaker B: One to walk up to. To heft him and three to run away. [00:45:41] Speaker E: I actually. I can't. Yeah, I can't see that this even happened. [00:45:46] Speaker C: No, you're behind a pillar. [00:45:48] Speaker B: Okay, Brianna, it is your turn. Oh. [00:45:51] Speaker F: This all happened before Brianna had a chance to do anything. Damn it. I had something cool lined up. [00:45:59] Speaker B: I'm sorry. [00:46:00] Speaker F: That's fine. So Brianna, I'm guessing, sees that happen, and she yells, silver, no. And I guess she'll try move that direction. But then she's quickly stopped by the vampire in front of her. So she will finally heft her scimitar that seems to have this ethereal sort of glow to it as she swings for a 25 that will hit take three additional damage. So 18 damage since it is undead. [00:46:37] Speaker G: Nice. [00:46:38] Speaker B: Very nice damage. All right, and that's for the one directly in front of you, correct? [00:46:42] Speaker F: Correct. [00:46:42] Speaker B: Okay. Yes. [00:46:43] Speaker C: Sean, she didn't throw her scimitar. [00:46:45] Speaker F: Not this time. [00:46:46] Speaker B: Well, she said she moved, so I didn't know she took it, like, a five foot step to hit the one. You guys have been beaten up. [00:46:51] Speaker F: No. Think of it like. She, like, tries to, like, shift forward, but she's immediately stopped by, I'm guessing by this vampire in front of her that luring down on her or whatever it's called, she will do it again because why not? [00:47:05] Speaker B: So that's 19 still standing. [00:47:08] Speaker C: That extra little bit is positive. If they're weak against it, it is positive. Yeah, I'm just saying if the vampires have, like, a weakness to positive. Like, weak, like positive five or something like that. I don't know if they do. [00:47:20] Speaker D: Okay, well, because it's forceful. [00:47:22] Speaker F: I'm gonna do a third time. [00:47:23] Speaker B: Why not? [00:47:24] Speaker F: Probably miss the 16. [00:47:26] Speaker B: Yes, that. That will miss. Not critically miss, just miss. And it does not look happy or good. Good. Fuck you. So its turn is next. And you see some of those wounds heal off. What? [00:47:42] Speaker F: Okay, not you. The vampire. [00:47:45] Speaker B: I get ya. Five. [00:47:48] Speaker F: You are the vampire. [00:47:49] Speaker B: 1015, 2025. And it runs away. [00:47:56] Speaker F: What? [00:47:56] Speaker B: Twin Talon. [00:47:58] Speaker C: Twin Talon will stand up with his first action, and then he will attack the vampire in between himself and Pond watcher. [00:48:06] Speaker B: Okay. [00:48:09] Speaker C: 27 to hit. [00:48:11] Speaker B: That will hit. [00:48:12] Speaker F: Nice. [00:48:17] Speaker C: So 18 damage. [00:48:19] Speaker B: You see this one crumble into dust. Good. [00:48:23] Speaker C: And he will take a swing at the one who is directly behind him. [00:48:27] Speaker B: Pond watcher no longer grappled. I mean, there's a hand still on. [00:48:32] Speaker C: Your tunic, but other than that, does 21 hit? [00:48:35] Speaker B: 21 will hit. [00:48:36] Speaker C: So 14 damage? [00:48:40] Speaker B: 14. Hey, Temmit. [00:48:44] Speaker G: So temmit kind of. He hears Brianna scream out silver. So he runs in that direction as far as he can go without actually getting attacked by this creature. So he stops here and he sees silver gone. And he kind of pieces something together. Like, you know, he's either dead or he's, you know, something is wrong. So he kind of screams out silver, but his voice kind of, like, takes on a different. Different noise and a different. A burst of sound kind of appears. Basically, he cast sound burst right in the middle. [00:49:16] Speaker B: Right. [00:49:16] Speaker G: I'm gonna ping. Right where? Right there. It's gonna be a ten. [00:49:19] Speaker C: Silver was. [00:49:20] Speaker G: Yes, where silver was. Because he's either dead, hopefully not invisible, because that would be really bad. But there's a ten foot radius, so it's gonna get all four of the guys around there, and they need to succeed against a DC 22. 42 save to not be hurt. [00:49:40] Speaker C: You said ten foot radius. [00:49:42] Speaker G: Ten foot burst. [00:49:43] Speaker C: Right. I think you'll hit every vampire that they're thinking. All five? [00:49:46] Speaker G: Yeah. [00:49:46] Speaker B: Oh, would it be? [00:49:47] Speaker G: Because I thought ten foot would be like, you get. [00:49:50] Speaker B: Oh, yeah, you're right. [00:49:51] Speaker C: It doesn't hit me, but it hits all the other vampires. [00:49:54] Speaker B: Okay, cool. [00:49:55] Speaker G: Yeah, that's good. [00:49:56] Speaker B: So I need to make five saving throws. All right. DC. What did you say? 22 DC. [00:50:01] Speaker G: 22. 42. [00:50:02] Speaker E: Nice. [00:50:02] Speaker B: First one fails. Okay, so that's a crit fail also. Okay, so I'm just gonna go in order from the one closest to twin Talon. So crit fail. 27. Then a 18. [00:50:15] Speaker G: Fail. [00:50:16] Speaker C: Regular fail. [00:50:17] Speaker B: Regular fail. 19. Regular fail. And the big un. [00:50:22] Speaker G: Come on, crit fail. Come on, baby. [00:50:23] Speaker D: Crip fail. [00:50:24] Speaker B: 15. [00:50:27] Speaker G: Still not bad. [00:50:28] Speaker B: All right, so out of the five that you hit one of them, crit failed. So double damage. [00:50:34] Speaker F: Nice. [00:50:35] Speaker G: But out of a. Got a total of four damage. [00:50:39] Speaker C: One in the three. [00:50:40] Speaker B: I know how that feels. Yeah. [00:50:43] Speaker G: I'm actually really, really upset right now. [00:50:46] Speaker F: Can I give Anwar my hero point? [00:50:48] Speaker B: Because this is such a. Anwar does have a hero point. [00:50:50] Speaker C: Hero points are only for D 20s. [00:50:52] Speaker G: Yeah, they're only for those. I wish. [00:50:54] Speaker B: And then a regular. Regular succeed does nothing. [00:50:56] Speaker G: Okay, so if you fail, the creature takes full damage and is deafened for a single round. Okay, if on a critical failure, which one of them does double damage, deafened for 1 minute and stunned one. [00:51:10] Speaker B: Nice. Okay, so the one that has the big x on it is stunned. Everyone else is deafened except for the one that passed. Right. [00:51:18] Speaker G: And so one of them takes eight damage, the other one take four damage, except for the one of them that doesn't take any damage. [00:51:24] Speaker B: And what does? Stun. [00:51:25] Speaker G: Oh, I'm sorry. It takes half damage. So the one that succeeded takes two damage. [00:51:30] Speaker C: So stunned, you lose that many actions. [00:51:33] Speaker B: So next up is the one that is stunned. So stunned one means he only gets two actions, runs away. Pond watcher. [00:51:42] Speaker C: I miss. Attacks. Opportunity. [00:51:44] Speaker E: Seriously. So on watcher, he has this sinking feeling in the pit of his stomach, hearing his friend on the other side of the wall getting fucked up, basically, and everyone's screaming. He can't see what's going on. And timid, just kills the creature holding him. And how high is this little broken down parapet? [00:52:09] Speaker B: 10Ft tall. [00:52:10] Speaker E: So he's just gonna. He's raging. So the ice is flowing all around him. He's just gonna run straight up the wall. [00:52:18] Speaker C: I feel like it's weird that he has ice and he doesn't slip. Like, he gets more traction. [00:52:22] Speaker E: He has, like, little icy claws. Yeah. So he. He has a climb speed that's equal to his normal speed. So I'm just gonna go straight up to here. All right. So he runs up to the top of the wall and looks down to where he thought silver was. Just sees nothing, right? [00:52:39] Speaker B: Yeah, there's nothing. There's a bunch of creatures standing. [00:52:42] Speaker E: All right, so he's gonna do a seek action to see if he can see where they went, if they took him. Because he doesn't see his body. He can see his blood on the ground. Right? [00:52:51] Speaker B: Right. Yeah. Make a seek. [00:52:53] Speaker E: So that's perception. [00:52:56] Speaker B: Yes. [00:52:57] Speaker E: 30. [00:52:57] Speaker B: Natural. [00:52:58] Speaker E: 20. [00:52:58] Speaker B: Okay. You see the perceptions. You see a blood trail leading off to the west. [00:53:11] Speaker E: Okay, this is. This is not good. He is going to. [00:53:17] Speaker B: Oh, that's. [00:53:17] Speaker E: Shouldn't have taken that seat. [00:53:19] Speaker B: Catch. Damn it. [00:53:25] Speaker E: Hmm. [00:53:27] Speaker C: Reach. [00:53:28] Speaker E: He's gonna. He's gonna just, like, do his. His dragon's breath into the group of vampires below it. So that's a 30 foot cone. So I believe that will hit all the ones in front of him there, right? Yeah. [00:53:43] Speaker B: Yes. [00:53:46] Speaker G: Holy crap. [00:53:47] Speaker B: I just realized how nuts a 34 cone is. [00:53:52] Speaker E: 24 cold damage. [00:53:53] Speaker B: 24 cold damage. But they get a reflex. Save for half, I'm assuming. [00:53:57] Speaker E: Yeah. [00:53:58] Speaker B: Here we go. Starting with the one in front. 30. So he succeeds. Then a 20 fails. Succeeds, and the big one critically failed. Yes. Yeah. The big un takes 48 damage. Right. [00:54:24] Speaker F: Nice. [00:54:26] Speaker B: Oh, my God. [00:54:27] Speaker F: Nice. [00:54:28] Speaker G: Don't mind pond. [00:54:29] Speaker B: Watch. [00:54:29] Speaker G: We're only doing six times the amount of damage that I did. [00:54:35] Speaker D: Everything counts, actually. [00:54:36] Speaker G: I'm sorry. Twelve times the amount of damage that I did. [00:54:39] Speaker D: Absolutely nothing. [00:54:40] Speaker B: Just. [00:54:40] Speaker D: Just remember that. I have done absolutely nothing. [00:54:44] Speaker G: Well, I mean, you're swooning over these vampires I've got. [00:54:49] Speaker C: Sparkling in sunlight. [00:54:52] Speaker D: Oh, no, we're not going there. [00:54:57] Speaker F: No. [00:54:58] Speaker B: The giant dies. Yes. First into ash. Yeah. Just ice cubes for days. [00:55:08] Speaker D: I'm assuming everyone's played bioshock. You know, you have that like, you freezing it hit it and you shatter. [00:55:12] Speaker B: Yeah, so I pictured like. Like it freezes and then the wind blows and it's like thanos snapped. Oh, no, just dust. [00:55:24] Speaker D: It's snowing. [00:55:25] Speaker B: Yes. Okay. This one that's got real hurt from that breath. You see. Some of the frost melt away and runs away. [00:55:40] Speaker F: Fuck's sake. [00:55:41] Speaker B: Saraya, you're up. You're still grappled. [00:55:44] Speaker D: Agent's now grappled. So I am going to just make a fire bomb. [00:55:50] Speaker B: Make a D 65 flat. Check. [00:55:52] Speaker D: Alrighty, it's just a D 20, nothing else. [00:55:55] Speaker B: D 20, that's it. [00:55:56] Speaker D: Alrighty. You're kidding. [00:56:00] Speaker B: You don't. [00:56:01] Speaker D: All right, she's gonna try again. [00:56:04] Speaker F: That was a natural one, by the way, listeners. [00:56:06] Speaker B: Yes. [00:56:06] Speaker D: Oh, yeah, yeah, sorry. That one. All I had to do is roll a six. That one. [00:56:12] Speaker B: There we go. So you missed. So it takes you a second, but then you manage to make it. [00:56:17] Speaker D: She catches what. Jasper drops it, starts to shake her fist a little, kind of like sparks. She looks at it, does it again. It to life. [00:56:25] Speaker F: Nice. [00:56:28] Speaker D: And, uh, she's gonna basically, she's not even gonna throw it. She's just kind of gonna like shove this alchemy misfire into this guy's chest. [00:56:36] Speaker F: Oh, shit. [00:56:37] Speaker B: 16 will miss. [00:56:39] Speaker D: God damn it. I'm like. He's right there. Like, I'm not throwing it. She's literally just going in and it misses. I don't understand. So the guy, however, does it get splash? [00:56:53] Speaker B: Yes. Takes one splash. [00:56:55] Speaker D: No, two. It's a moderate. [00:56:57] Speaker B: Oh, two. Splash. Okay, so on its turn, you see the damage heal up. It lets go of you for one action. [00:57:06] Speaker C: Dropping. Thanks for. [00:57:08] Speaker B: Oh, dropping is free. Oh, it drops you for free and then runs away. [00:57:13] Speaker D: Cowards. [00:57:15] Speaker B: Run away. And run away. The sound of fighting is over as everything is eerily quiet again. There is a blood trail leading off to the west, with the soft flickering. [00:57:29] Speaker A: Of the campfire illuminating the area. Silver is nowhere to be seen. [00:57:35] Speaker C: Can. Can we give chase? [00:57:37] Speaker B: Yeah, absolutely. [00:57:38] Speaker G: So. So temid runs to where he was and does a survival check. [00:57:46] Speaker B: Okay, cool. So this is what I want you to do. [00:57:48] Speaker A: I want you to look at how to track. [00:57:51] Speaker B: Okay. And I believe it's a survival check, right? [00:57:54] Speaker G: Yep. [00:57:54] Speaker B: Great. Now to roll that. You're gonna roll the d 20 plus your survival modifier next week. [00:58:02] Speaker C: Yeah, that's a good one. [00:58:04] Speaker F: Stop. Why are you like this? [00:58:07] Speaker G: Well, I have a long time to read up on this. [00:58:08] Speaker D: Saw it coming, but still annoyed. [00:58:10] Speaker B: No. No. Silver. [00:58:14] Speaker H: What has happened to Silver? Will our party be able to find him? Will he be turned into one of these creatures? Were anyone's theories about what these were true?
