    study by my calculations (please correct me if I am wrong), we had 5 rounds of combat + 4 rounds of down time = 9 total rounds of time

    Shivak = 1 rd left of Battlemind and Enhance Ability
    SDX = 6 rds left of Improved Inviso
    Sharn - 4 rds of Aura of Madness (got turned off after combat), no DD left

    all = Aid 30 rds (3 min)

    any other buffs I am missing?

    ________________________________________________________

    roll initiative

    placement - SDX is at 12, Shivak at 3, I will put Tarro at 6 and Sharn at 9, unless you care, I am happy to switch

    zone into the lower left corner

    Jakarro and his remaining men have built a barricade in the center, but are surrounded by many worm-like Eldrazi W and 1 huge horror Eldrazi H.  

    The party also notices 3 of the cold shadow Eldrazi M that are putting the blast doors protecting the turbolift to the command center in a deep freeze.  They are trying to get access to the twin turbolift shafts to get to the Command and Control center where the Dockmaster sits.

    The map is all 1 level.  There are black walls on the original image mostly around row N, O.  They are full walls which block LoS, LoE and prohibit movement.

    There is more debris on the left side of the map - partial cover, difficult terrain.  more at S18-20

    The barricade is partial cover if they stand, full cover if they duck down and difficult terrain to climb over.  The entire white square is considered barricade, even though the image inside is smaller.

    any map questions?

    Temporary Hit Points

    Certain effects give a character temporary hit points. These hit points are in addition to the character's current hit point total and any damage taken by the character is subtracted from these hit points first. Any damage in excess of a character's temporary hit points is applied to his current hit points as normal. If the effect that grants the temporary hit points ends or is dispelled, any remaining temporary hit points go away. The damage they sustained is not transferred to the character's current hit points.

    When temporary hit points are lost, they cannot be restored as real hit points can be, even by magic.

    Tonight is the festival of lights - a holiday dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and cool looking lights, celebrated by only a handful of people wordwide. It is a night to consider that it is only a car if everyone agrees that it is a car, solemnly remember that Beavis and Butthead roam free on the Serengeti plains, and that sometimes I AM SUCH AN IDIOT!

    As Tarro enters the airspace around N-9 he realizes that he is flying into several clouds of noxious gas!

    Tarro needs to make 2 separate Fort. saves
    *this is both a poison and gas effect, if you have any immunities or resistances*

    study Is Tarro remaining in the air or is he landing before he shoots?

    Ok, perfect.   Green clouds of noxious gas surround each of the smaller Eldrazi W

    Tarro blasts the nearest Eldrazi M.  It evaporates into a cloud of black smoke.

    Eldrazi H slithers 5ft forward and lashes out at Tarro with 2 of its long, slime-covered tentacles (extra reach)

    The first tentacle misses, but the second hits Tarro!  

    Tarro takes Result of the throw of dice "4d4 +8" :

    3 + 3 + 2 + 2 + 8 = 18 damage

    The slime-covered tentacle gets a free grab

    I think Tarro has a CMD = 30
    10 + BAB + Dex + Str

    grapple check CMB = +23
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +23" :

    17 + 23 = 40

    The slime covered tentacle gets ahold of Tarro and brings the tasty red morsel to its mouth....

    Tarro is grappled (inside the creatures mouth) and must make a Fort Save DC 24 because of the slimey saliva in the  Eldrazi H's foul maw.
    *not gas based, not poison*

    Hey GM - Noticed on this map and looking back on others, you are making SDX pretty big.

    He is a small creature on a small carpet of flying. He only takes up a 5 ft square.




    SDX HP = 83/100
    Improved Invisibility, 6 rounds
    Mythic Power, 2 remaining




    SDX unleashes an advanced multiple attack nano-bot pattern along the axis of P-T/9.

    Standard action SLA, summon monster VI, 1d3 creatures of the same kind from the 5th-level list: Azata, Bralani  

    Superior summoning (When summoning more than one creature, summon an extra one)
    Result of the throw of dice "1d3 +1" :

    2 + 1 = 3

    BRALANI CR 6
    XP 2,400
    CG Medium outsider (azata, chaotic, extraplanar, good, shapechanger)
    Init +8; Senses darkvision 60 ft., low-light vision; Perception +15
    DEFENSE

    1 Point evolution (Evolved Summoned Monster feat) Acid resistance 5
    AC 20, touch 14, flat-footed 16 (+4 Dex, +6 natural)
    hp 86 (66+20 for medium Construct)
    Fort +9, Ref +9, Will +6
    DR 10/cold iron or evil; Immune electricity, petrification; Resist cold 10, fire 10; SR 17
    OFFENSE

    Speed 40 ft., fly 100 ft. (perfect)
    Melee +1 scimitar +13/+8 (1d6+8/18–20) or slam +12 (1d6+7)
    Ranged +1 composite longbow +12/+7 (1d8+8/×3)
    Special Attacks whirlwind blast
    Spell-Like Abilities (CL 6th)
    At Will—blur, charm person (DC 13), gust of wind (DC 14), mirror image, wind wall
    2/day—lightning bolt (DC 15), cure serious wounds
    STATISTICS

    Str 24, Dex 18, Con 23, Int 13, Wis 14, Cha 15
    Base Atk +7; CMB +12; CMD 26
    Feats Blind-Fight, Improved Initiative, Iron Will, Skill Focus (Perception)
    Skills Bluff +12, Fly +22, Handle Animal +12, Perception +15, Ride +14, Sense Motive +12, Stealth +14
    Languages Celestial, Draconic, Infernal; truespeech
    SQ wind form
    ECOLOGY

    Environment any (Elysium)
    Organization solitary, pair, or squad (3–6)
    Treasure double (+1 scimitar, +1 composite longbow [+5 Str])
    SPECIAL ABILITIES

    Whirlwind Blast (Su) When in wind form, a bralani can attack with a scouring blast of wind, dealing 3d6 points of damage in a 20-foot line (Reflex DC 17 half). The save DC is Constitution-based.
    Wind Form (Su) A bralani can shift between its humanoid body and a body made of wind and mist as a standard action. In humanoid form, it cannot fly or use its whirlwind blast. In wind form, it functions as if under the effects of a wind walk spell. It can make slam attacks and use spell-like abilities in either form. A bralani remains in one form until it chooses to assume its other form. A change in form cannot be dispelled, nor does the bralani revert to any particular form when killed (both shapes are its true form). A true seeing spell reveals both forms simultaneously.






    SLA summon is a standard action; the creatures arrive and can act/attack immediately.

    The Bralani nano-forms deploy and launch a volley of rapid electrical strikes against the large swarm at R/14.

    Here is hoping that Tarro is well insulated/grounded!

    Lightening bolt #1
    Result of the throw of dice "6d6" :

    4 + 1 + 1 + 4 + 5 + 2 = 17

    Lightening bolt #2
    Result of the throw of dice "6d6" :

    3 + 2 + 1 + 3 + 1 + 6 = 16

    Lightening bolt #3
    Result of the throw of dice "6d6" :

    1 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 6 + 6 = 21

    Matt, I apologize about the size of SDX.  I could have sworn you said he was large at one point, but maybe I was confusing it with your eidolon or something - FIXED

    I love the variety of summons cheers

    I positioned the Bralani as you indicated and I am happy to resolve their lightning bolts as you said, however....  Lightning bolt actually creates a Line of Effect and will hit all targets within its range, in that same line

    Area 120-ft. line

    You release a powerful stroke of electrical energy that deals 1d6 points of electricity damage per caster level (maximum 10d6) to each creature within its area. The bolt begins at your fingertips.


    I can just have the lightning bolts hit the Eldrazi H and Tarro if that is all that you want, but I think if you actually draw a line, each Bralani could possibly hit multiple enemies.  Use their starting position and then (within 120ft or 24 squares) tell me an end square.  By drawing a straight line, connecting origin and terminus, we can see what targets are affected.

    I drew 3 proposed LoE for the 3 lightning bolts, if this is ok with you, we can resolve.  Feel free to alter their position and the lines though, as these are your summons.  I just wanted to give an example of how each could actually hit 3 targets (4, counting Tarro  Twisted Evil  )

    map updated



    study  ok to proceed or something you want to change?

    No worries about SDX size - he was originally going to be bigger, confusion understandable.

    Proposed lines are fine, thanks for doing the math! I didn't want to take time last night to make calculations so just stated Id blast the big guy and try to get Tarro out of trouble ASAP.

    I see the current position puts one of the Bralani in a poison cloud. Constructs are immune to poison, FYI.

    Hang tough Tarro, I got healz for after we get you free!

    I actually remembered that contstructs are immune to poison this time Laughing
    which is why I wasn't worried about placing them in the Stinking Clouds

    Tarro needs to make 3 Reflex saves DC 15 each for half damage or deal with the damages Matt listed above.

    I knew the big Eldrazi H was immune to electricity, but after review, it appears all Eldrazi are immune, unfortunately.

    The 2 remaining Eldrazi M continue to freeze the blast doors on the turbo lift shafts.  It looks like they will break through next round, if both survive.  They would have broken through this round, if not for Tarro's quick strike!

    Sharn runs around the work station and a sickly green ray springs from his finger tip.  It strikes the Eldrazi H.  There is a green cascading aura around the Eldrazi H who is now barred from any type of extra-dimensional movement.  (dimensional anchor)

    3 of the Eldrazi W move and attack the 3 Bralani with bites.  2 hit, 1 misses

    Bralani at P-9 takes 4 damage
    Bralani at R-9 takes 3 damage

    The other 3 Eldrazi W surround Jakarro and his men, many of whom are puking instead of fighting.  Jakarro takes a bite attack and fights back with his rifle.

    Shivak will stick with a tried and true method for the moment...

    Affect Mind on the Big Guy. "You will leave and never come back."

    Affect Mind - 4 HP cost

    Roll(1d20)+24:
    11,+24
    Total:35

    DC 25 Will Save for him

    Shivak is at 63/100 HP for now

    he will wait to see the effect of this before taking any further action.

    Shivak's suggestion seems to have no effect. Any other actions?

    There are two ways to do it, though I don't like the later, personally.

    1) Throwing a lightsaber is a ranged attack (standard) using a thrown weapon (+str dam) at -4 (since it isn't meant to be thrown) and use Move Object (move) to pull it back to your hand.

    2) Using Move Object to "hurl an object as an attack" uses your ranged attack (no penalty, no str bonus). This is a Full Round Action (so you can't call it back). This is more what Vader did to Luke, just to badger and annoy him. It causes minimal damage (1d4) but has a chance to daze the target for 1 rd.

    *The most effective use of Move Object in this manner is to lift something heavy and drop it on someone, which is also a Full Round Action

    FYI - Affect Mind is a Full Round Action

    Tarro
    Ac 30 SR22
    Touch 20
    Hp 113/148
    PBAMF

    Aid +1 att/vs. Fear
    +3/+3 studied target

    SDX's guys have to beat Tarro's SR.

    Tarro studies the massive horror and fires a vital strike into its maw.
    Roll of 1.  Force point to re-roll.
    9+19+3+1+1=33
    37+4=41 dmg

    "Protect the elevators; I'll handle this." Cool

    Relentless, Tarro spends mythic power to fire a distant barrage down its throat.

    I'll just roll these for the summons to speed up the process

    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +6" :

    1 + 6 = 7

    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +6" :

    9 + 6 = 15

    I don't think any of those actually break the SR

    Ok, so let's take a look at this for a minute....

    Chris wrote:
    The slime-covered tentacle gets a free grab

    The slime covered tentacle gets ahold of Tarro and brings the tasty red morsel to its mouth....

    Tarro is grappled (inside the creatures mouth) and must make a Fort Save DC 24 because of the slimey saliva in the  Eldrazi H's foul maw.
    *not gas based, not poison*


    Tarro is grappled and trying to use his rifle, which is a 2-handed weapon

    per PF

    Grappled: A grappled creature is restrained by a creature, trap, or effect. Grappled creatures cannot move and take a –4 penalty to Dexterity. A grappled creature takes a –2 penalty on all attack rolls and combat maneuver checks, except those made to grapple or escape a grapple. In addition, grappled creatures can take no action that requires two hands to perform.


    is Tarro attempting to fire his rifle with only 1 hand?

    (I think you can still get this done, I just want to actually figure out how big the penalties are)

    It is a MEDIUM sized weapon just like a longsword or a mace. It can be used in 1 hand, as blaster rifles often are in the movies. Twisted Evil

    I agree that a rifle is a medium weapon, but that doesn't mean it is intended for 1 handed use.  I agree it is done in movies, but we don't see the penalty  Cool

    Size isn't the deciding factor, rifle is listed as a two-handed firearm in PF

    http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/ultimateCombat/combat/firearms.html#table-advanced-firearms

    and here is a clip from SW that is on point




    is Tarro firing the rifle with 1 hand or doing something else?

    it looks like the penalties will be -2 (-4 dex) -2 to all attacks and -5 for firing 1 handed

    Hmmm... Hadn't seen that. Been playing that wrong for years.

    Assuming drawing a weapon would depend on a grapple check, which is a losing bet, Tarro will take the penalty. Tarro has Pinpoint Targeting, however, so the beast loses its armor, natural armor and shield bonus to AC.

    Question: if a creature has you in its moith, should it lose dex to AC?

    just like Thermal Detonators Cool   (though I would think a carbine should be less of a penalty, only -3 or -2)

    Thanks for the reminder about the feat and its adjustments

    I agree it loses its Dex bonus, since it can't really dodge while Tarro is inside its mouth.... both shots score!

    study remind me - does the mythic barrage shot bypass DR?

    Eldrazi H  howls in pain as the soft tissue of its throat is scorched by the super-heated gas of blaster bolts.  Eldrazi H decides to crunch the red-hot in its mouth and it bites down with 6 rows of shark-like teeth on Tarro

    If you do not release the grapple, you must continue to make a check each round, as a standard action, to maintain the hold. If your target does not break the grapple, you get a +5 circumstance bonus on grapple checks made against the same target in subsequent rounds. Once you are grappling an opponent, a successful check allows you to continue grappling the foe, and also allows you to perform one of the following actions (as part of the standard action spent to maintain the grapple).

    Pin: You can give your opponent the pinned condition (see Conditions). Despite pinning your opponent, you still only have the grappled condition, but you lose your Dexterity bonus to AC.


    +5 to grapple check, since Tarro was previously grappled vs CMD 30  (standard action)

    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +28" :

    12 + 28 = 40

    Instead of chewing (this turn) Eldrazi H pins Tarro using its teeth like an Iron Maiden!


    Pinned: A pinned creature is tightly bound and can take few actions. A pinned creature cannot move and is denied its Dexterity bonus. A pinned character also takes an additional –4 penalty to his Armor Class. A pinned creature is limited in the actions that it can take. A pinned creature can always attempt to free itself, usually through a combat maneuver check or Escape Artist check. A pinned creature can take verbal and mental actions, but cannot cast any spells that require a somatic or material component. A pinned character who attempts to cast a spell or use a spell-like ability must make a concentration check (DC 10 + grappler's CMB + spell level) or lose the spell. Pinned is a more severe version of grappled, and their effects do not stack.

    map is still current

    SPECIAL ABILITIES

    Whirlwind Blast (Su) When in wind form, a bralani can attack with a scouring blast of wind, dealing 3d6 points of damage in a 20-foot line (Reflex DC 17 half). The save DC is Constitution-based.
    Wind Form (Su) A bralani can shift between its humanoid body and a body made of wind and mist as a standard action. In humanoid form, it cannot fly or use its whirlwind blast. In wind form, it functions as if under the effects of a wind walk spell. It can make slam attacks and use spell-like abilities in either form. A bralani remains in one form until it chooses to assume its other form. A change in form cannot be dispelled, nor does the bralani revert to any particular form when killed (both shapes are its true form). A true seeing spell reveals both forms simultaneously.




    Each Bralani will engage the Elrazi it is facing, top to bottom, with sharp sword-like slashes! (Scimitar+1)

    The Bralani find their scimitars more effective against the weaker Eldrazi W than their lightning.  All 3 worms are cut down!

    The Eldrazi M finish freezing the turbolift shafts and the durasteel cracks and splits open - clearing a path to the command center.  All seems lost when the mighty Sharnralkin dashes forward, calling upon the ancient wookie mountain spirits.  A wall of stone rises up to block the Eldrazi M's path.

    "Mwarahar grharww dur zirrh"  (this won't hold them for long)

    The 3 remaining Eldrazi W continue to press their attack on Jakarro and his men.  Jakarro takes a wicked looking bite in neck and is bleeding badly.  His last 2 men fall to other Eldrazi W.

    "Protect the turbolifts.  I have him right where I want him!"

    I think the closest "trigger" to your intent is that Tarro readies an action to move if the creature fails its grapple check, thus releasing Tarro.

    Remember, the creature must roll each round to maintain the grapple at +5 AND it can chew (damage) or pin or etc

    Fair warning - if the creatures fails its grapple and Tarro moves (triggered condition) within its melee threat zone, it would get an AoO on Tarro (for moving) which if it hits would trigger the "improved grab" and give it a chance to re-grapple Tarro
