    Elliot, is that your critical damage roll?  You did, in fact, confirm your critical.  The second attack missed.

    Rifle or Pistol Crit mod is x4

    Yeah, the Crit confirmation roll was a 17, Elliot's 2nd attack was a 14.

    Sorry, I forgot the Crit mod was x4 on firearms, if you wanna retcon it, it's an additional 12 pts damage 2d10 (10+2)=12, for a grand total of 32.

    all the damage matters and it was your turn, no reason that you shouldn't get your full damage.


    you put a hole through his chest. he's still up, but barely.

    Map updated but... honestly, who's next? the baddies or JT? I've lost count, sorry. That's where I'm losing the order, I think.

    Plague Zombies
    Olivia (since everyone waited for her)
    CR3
    CJC
    Elliot (waited on CJC)
    JT

    JT is up.  If I am following the thread correctly, both 1408 (hit by CR3 for 18 and Olivia fpr 25 = 43) and 1307 (crit by elliot for 32) are damaged but still up

    JT will sweep his dwarven war axe at the zombie's legs at 1408 who is flanked by CR3 and thus denied his Dex to AC and vulnerable to sneak attack

    +10 + 2 flanking + 2 favored enemy
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +14" :

    11 + 14 = 25

    if that hit, damage
    Result of the throw of dice "1d10 +9" :

    6 + 9 = 15

    sneak attack
    Result of the throw of dice "3d6" :

    5 + 4 + 5 = 14

    total damage = 29
    +3 AC for offensive defense, AC now 23

    FORT save for the inevitable pop
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +7" :

    12 + 7 = 19
    +4 if poison, spell or SLA

    JT will use his move action to tumble to 1209 and offer flanking on the zombie at 1309
    Acro vs CMD to avoid AoO
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +18" :

    The zombie explodes in greenish goo all over JT (makes his save), Olivia and CR III. I will need Fort saves from both of them.

    Since JT is right next to them (and they ain't bright) they both swing at him...

    Roll(1d20)+5:
    8,+5
    Total:13

    Roll(1d20)+5:
    11,+5
    Total:16

    yeah, I made these guys too weak... ugh.

    Map is updated.



    New Round....

    CRIII
    Colonel (held his action)
    Elliot
    Olivia, JT
    baddies.

    that is what I have, this is a good time to correct me if I'm wrong on the order

    CR3 steps to 1408.  "I do not see a threat worthy of such intrigue here... These scratch  must be an honour guard of some sort."

    14+9=23 to hit.  Now mechanical, as if weeding a garden, CR3 kicks it in the small of the back.

    Dmg= 4+5=9
    Snk att= 2+3=5
    Total 14 damage

    11+9=20 to hit  even more mechanical, stomping the shin

    2+5 =7 dmg
    3+1=4 snk att
    Total 11 damage

    "Good heavens, what a stench!"

    CJC moves to 1610, with his hound trotting alongside to 1609.

    Hound readies action, intercept any incoming melee threats to CJC by moving to blocking position in hex adjacent to CJC, condition - incoming melee threat.

    CJC readies action, fire rifle at active hostile (disregarding controlled undead), condition - clear firing lane opens and shot can be taken without firing into melee.

    Elliot shoots again at the rotting corpse in 1307..

    First attack: 1d20 + 11 ( 7+11)=18

    If that hits, damage: 1d10 + 2d6 vs undead (10+3+1)=14

    14 damage.

    I'd like to know if that baddie in 1307 is still up before I finish my turn, please.

    nope, he blowed up real good. Fort saves are unnecessary as everyone is out of range... but the smell is horrible.

    additional actions?

    Yeah, sorry for delay, busy night at work..

    When his first shot pops the corpse, Elliot shifts his pistol and takes a second shot at the zombie in 1309.

    Attack 2 1d20 + 4 ( 8+4)=12

    Meh, don't think that's a hit, but just in case, 1d10 + 4 + 2d6 vs undead :(9+4+2)=15

    Hope I didn't hit JT... Rolling Eyes

    Elliot is done.

    Olivia steps forward to hex 1408. Using her prehensile hair, she plays whack-a-zombie on the undead at 1309.

    Flurry of blows (and still raging):
    1st attack): 5 + 12 = 17

    6 + 8 = 14 damage

    2nd): 12 + 12 = 24

    4 + 8 = 12 damage

    Olivia rips at the zombie with her hair (which gets coated in it's disgusting juices)... he is still up.

    Elliot's second shot missed.

    the current map is a bit off, JT tumbled to 1209 on his last action

    JT will take a flanking attack on the the guy at 1309

    24 total

    4 + 18 = 22

    I will also need a Fortitude save for Olivia.

    5' step to 1409. CR3 karate chops the arm that attacked Ms. Ormonde. "Hands off the lady now," as if reprimanding a dog. Then he gives the creature another crunching kick as if breaking a long branch into compostable pieces.

    Fort saves were made.  You still have the two under Olivia's control.

    off-initiative... you hear a booming voice from down the hall but it sound more like a cry of anguish, it's a female voice (I don't believe that any of you speak ancient Egyptian?)

    I take it that these plague zombies have at least a degree of intelligence? Since if they didn't, they wouldn't have needed to make saving throws.

    Olivia approaches the dominated zombies. "Thank you for your service. Before I can release you, I require further assistance," she says, smiling and non-threatening. "Tell me, what is the source of that scream we just heard?"

    CR III... it might be a name, but you're not certain. It doesn't correspond to any word that you know (what the zombies said)

    if so JT will clear the room to the doorway of traps

    Perception +3 traps +2 for stone
    Roll(1d20)+17:
    9,+17
    Total:26 +5 = 31

    You find no traps... you do, however, find loot!

    precious items and gold worth 3500

    one scroll, one sword, one ring and a headband are found.

    CR3 will quietly approach the doorway and listen. If it is an opening, he will then peek around without stepping through

    Stealth 3+14=17
    Perception 15+14=29

    JT offers, "I am happy to continue with our previous diligent pace, 'owever after all the gunfire and the recent cry of anguish.... I rather suspect the element of surprise has been lost."

    it's up to the party, but if anyone has Spellcraft I think we should at least try to identify the magic items and use them for the rest of the dungeon

    Check: Spellcraft is used whenever your knowledge and skill of the technical art of casting a spell or crafting a magic item comes into question. This skill is also used to identify the properties of magic items in your possession through the use of spells such as detect magic and identify. The DC of this check varies depending upon the task at hand.

    Action: Identifying a spell as it is being cast requires no action, but you must be able to clearly see the spell as it is being cast, and this incurs the same penalties as a Perception skill check due to distance, poor conditions, and other factors. Learning a spell from a spellbook takes 1 hour per level of the spell (0-level spells take 30 minutes). Preparing a spell from a borrowed spellbook does not add any time to your spell preparation. Making a Spellcraft check to craft a magic item is made as part of the creation process. Attempting to ascertain the properties of a magic item takes 3 rounds per item to be identified and you must be able to thoroughly examine the object.

    Retry: You cannot retry checks made to identify a spell. If you fail to learn a spell from a spellbook or scroll, you must wait at least 1 week before you can try again. If you fail to prepare a spell from a borrowed spellbook, you cannot try again until the next day. When using detect magic or identify to learn the properties of magic items, you can only attempt to ascertain the properties of an individual item once per day. Additional attempts reveal the same results.


    ....please read through this part and tell me which item you are using Spellcraft for and if you are using detect Magic first, you won't even know that they are magical otherwise.

    As per the conversation in the preceding posts that discussed identifying the items, CJC is attempting to ID any magical properties the items may have.

    As per the text above, "detect magic" is not a requirement to suspect that items might have magical properties and make a check.

    study Call the Rules Lawyers!!  lol!

    emphasis mine above, but I tend to agree with Josh in his interpretation of the text.  I think the text states and implies that you need to be using either Detect Magic or Identify.  

    I do think Matt's point is valid, that it doesn't make logical sense, since Detect Magic just tells you "hey, this is magical" and Identify simply gives a bonus to the Spellcraft check.  It is only 3 rounds (18 seconds) so even without DM or ID, you could just turn the object over in your hands for 18s and use the skill, logically.

    That's the correct interpretation as I read it. If you are spending three rounds analyzing, please tell me.

    We'll say this... 1st round: "yup, it's magic", 2nd round: "it has ____ kind of enchantment", 3rd round: "it has ____ power"

    using Detect Magic would cut this to 1 round and Identify would tell you the item's powers as it's cast
