    Thanks guys! Grandma Arline had a good run, but yeah, it's a sad time. I did see pix of Chris' Ma's injury on Facebook. Hope she's doing better! I remember awhile back G posted pix of his face after falling on the sidewalk, and frankly it looked like he'd been hit by a truck! Posting gory pix isn't my thing, but hey, it's a public forum so folks can do what they wish!

    Okay, so Zang's small army has a go of it:

    Zang dissolves the illusion of the queen (the jig is up). Casts Mythic Flame Strike, centered on the dragon but trying to also catch the beetle and necron in it as well and (hopefully) avoiding the Biguns.

    Flame Strike
    School evocation [fire]; Level cleric 5, druid 4
    Casting Time 1 standard action
    Components V, S, DF
    Range medium (100 ft. + 10 ft./level)
    Area cylinder (10-ft. radius, 40-ft. high)
    Duration instantaneous
    Saving Throw Reflex half; Spell Resistance yes
    A flame strike evokes a vertical column of divine fire. The spell deals 1d6 points of damage per caster level (maximum 15d6). Half the damage is fire damage, but the other half results directly from divine power and is therefore not subject to being reduced by resistance to fire-based attacks.

    Mythic version:
    Flame Strike
    Source flame strike
    The damage dealt increases to 1d8 per caster level (maximum 15d8). The area increases to a 20-foot-radius, 40-foot-high cylinder. You may have the divine half of the damage affect only one specific creature type (as the bane weapon quality).

    10d8 damage: 2 + 2 + 3 + 1 + 6 + 8 + 7 + 7 + 3 + 3 = 42; 21 fire and 21 divine.

    Zang spends a Hero point for another standard action and activates his ring of Invisibility. Moves up to I-12, inside the temple.

    Skree follows his master, also inside the temple.

    Bigun #1 stands up from prone. Sprays acid at the dragon. Not sure their BAB's... Damage: 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 6 = 24.
    Bigun #2 jumps on the dragon attempting to grapple it. I don't know their CMB's... If it grapples Valum, can it use it's tail to spray acid?

    Jett, still in whirlwind form, drops the necron on his head. Moves up towards the dragon, and continues to belt his tune, "You’re never alone, you’re never disconnected! You’re home with your own--When company’s expected, you’re well protected!"

    The whirlwind touches ground now, causing a swirling cloud of debris. From the PRD: "This cloud is centered on the creature and has a diameter equal to half the whirlwind's height. The cloud obscures all vision, including darkvision, beyond 5 feet. Creatures 5 feet away have concealment, while those farther away have total concealment. Those caught in the cloud of debris must succeed on a concentration check (DC 15 + spell level) to cast a spell."

    Glub moves towards the flame and uses it's drench ability. Drench (Ex) The elemental's touch puts out nonmagical flames of Large size or smaller. The creature can dispel magical fire it touches as dispel magic (caster level equals elemental's HD). Glub has 4 Hit Dice.

    If the flames are extinguished, Ralph runs thru the gap. If there is still flames, he waits and snorts.

    cheers Great coordinated effort!

    Ok, a couple items that I need clarification on.....

    Zang and Skree can't move INTO the temple as it was destroyed by the Earthquake

    Chris wrote:at 4, the ground begins to rumble and shake violently. an EARTHQUAKE centered on the illusion of the Queen topples the walls, the temple and opens up a 40ft fissure (effectively a PIT) in the ground!

    You can move to that location, but there is no cover anymore, that's why I removed the graphics of the walls and their height markers

    Flamestrike - with a 20ft radius, you would hit 1 of the bigguns.  You can definitely get Valum, the beetle, pilot but the circle is so large it gets 1 biggun.  If you go with the 10ft radius (non-mythic) you could target only the enemies.  However, you could move both bigguns out of the way, just move it away from Valum and then have them shoot.  See the map below.  is that ok?  

    Both Bigguns can spray with acid and are already standing (DELAY from last turn).  However, Valum is flying at 0 ft in the air (thus no height marker) but the bigguns are -40ft in the crater, so he can't jump or grapple.   No BAB needed, it works like lightning bolt, just fire.   Do you want both to spray?  

    Jett has a speed of 100ft, so he can reach Valum (presumably AFTER the flamestrike) on 1 move, so he could still do something with his standard action.  Any action?

    Glub - extinguishes the fire in front of him

    Ralph can move through the gap easily.  He could CHARGE and hit the Necron under Brick who happens to be in straight line and less than 60ft (double move) from Ralph.  Would Ralph like to charge and attack?

    possible map update




    need:

    Rhino attack roll

    Cool, thanks for clarifying things. I forgot that Valum is 40' above the others. Nor did I realize the temple was completely leveled. Oh well.

    Zang and Skree keep their move. But is there not even rubble to hide behind?

    Nevermind the Bigun's grapple then. Both Biguns get out of way of Zang's Mythic Flame Strike, then they spray their acid.
    Bigun #2 damage: 6 + 5 + 5 + 3 + 6 = 25.

    With the way through the fire wall cleared, Ralph does indeed make a Powerful Charge (gore, 4d8+18).
    Powerful Charge (Ex) When a creature with this special attack makes a charge, its attack deals extra damage in addition to the normal benefits and hazards of a charge. The attack and amount of damage from the attack is given in the creature's description. Gore Attack: 15 + 14 = 29; Damage: 2 + 7 + 2 + 5 = 16 + 18 = 34.

    Jett tries to catch Valum in the whirlwind. The air elemental moves above Valum and extends the size of the whirlwind to compensate for the 40' distance to the ground. Let's call it a 80' high (x 40' wide at the peak, but only 5' at the base) whirlwind, but it does not touch the ground. Retcon that shit. The blinding effect won't affect Valum anyways, since he is 40' up from the crater's bottom.
    Valum must make 2 Reflex saves at DC 18: 1st one is when he comes into contact (slam damage), second one is being held by the whirlwind. Slam damage: 8 + 4 = 12.
    Jett can keep his whirlwind form for 2 more rounds max.

    Sure, there is some rubble, but not a 20ft tower anymore.

    Both Bigguns blast the Sovereign Dragon Valum - the acid does burn, but at reduced effect. Valum also flinches from the Flamestrike, but Zang suspects more from the divine damage than the fire. He seems very agile in the air and probably avoided much of all the attacks. Valum saves both times vs Jett. He is a nimble serpent, after all.

    at 14, Rasso decides to take a more direct approach to destroying the Queen.... personally!  He is frustrated with his minions' lack of progress.  The party detects a hint of desperation in his action.

    Rasso:  "Meteors!"

    Necron Commander: " I beg pardon, sire. Won't we hit our own troops?"

    Rasso: "Yes... but we'll hit theirs as well. We have reserves. Attack."


    He is certain that the Queen is trapped in the crater created by his Earthquake.  The party can see 4 METEORS launch from the center of the black hole. Sparks trail, like shooting stars, as the meteors arc as if shot from a catapult.  They fly high into the air and come crashing down in the crater!  





    There are 4 impact zones, as noted on the map.  (I removed the flamestrike one, as that is done, but it was noted above).  Each impact zone is a 40ft radius circle.  Anyone caught in an impact gets a REFLEX save DC 30!  or take 6d10 fire damage, plus get knocked prone and be deafened 1d4 rds

    so it looks like Zang + Skree each get hit once
    Rob's bigguns get hit twice
    poor Valum gets hit twice (fails 1, saves 1)
    facehuggers once
    Jett once (barely missed by 2 others!)
    Queen once
    Alan's biggun once

    Fire damage
    Result of the throw of dice "6d10" :

    10 + 1 + 9 + 9 + 1 + 9 = 39 FIRE, so 78 vs Xeno-types

    DEAFNESS
    Result of the throw of dice "1d4" :

    2

    The Queen is badly injured from the fire (vulnerable)

    Valum howls at the betrayal as he knocked from the air, taking falling damage, is now prone and deaf for 2 rds and heavily injured

    I'll just update the Xenos - they all fail their saves.  Rob's bigguns are dead, the Facehuggers are prone, deaf and barely alive.  Alan's biggun is dead (previously damaged).  

    Anybody flying that fails the save, takes falling damage as well  Twisted Evil





    We need saves from Rob for Zang, Skree, Jett

    Stat block in previous post.  I need clarification on the whirlwind.  Is it still active after the blasts?  Does it block Brick's visual of the dragon?


    Biggun left will spray acid at the necron and swarm and then close to melee range with the necron.

    Brick Rockman will act once I understand the whirlwind.

    Jett has 104 HP, so it will survive the meteor shower.  I don't know whether it will still be airborne or not until Rob makes the save for Jett.  It might be airborne or it might be prone on the ground in the crater.

    Biggun spray is fine.  Which Necron does it close to?  the one it sprayed or the one nearest to it?  It can't get any closer to the nearest without taking fire damage, which it doesn't want to do.  It could go around Korvaq, off the map again, to get near the one it sprayed.

    Roll 5d6 for the acid spray


    Here is a smaller map that shows Brick has a LoS to the dragon, regardless of the Whirlwind, if that helps

    If the bigguns have reach, then leave him where you have him.

    I interpret that Brick can charge the dragon with 120' of movement this turn.  Correct?

    Brick charges the dragon to Grapple, dealing non-lethal damage with a turnbuckle fly.

    9+29+1+1+2=42 to Grapple.
    Dmg5+12+2=19 non-lethal, +6 lethal cold dmg.

    If the dragon is unconscious, brick will stop there.  If the dragon is resisting, he will use sudden Attack to pin.

    Very clever use of non-lethal damage! Non-lethal damage exceeded Valum's current HP total, so his knocked unconscious. Valum goes limp in Brick's grasp.

    study clean-up notes and effects
    Alan's last Biggun takes out the Necron + repair swarm C\D-49
    Brick is now on the ground, in the crater -40ft because Valum had hit the ground and was prone.  consider LoS being in a -40ft crater
    Brick's biggun has 10ft reach from its size, so he does threaten the nearby Necron E-45
    Jett, Zang, Skree, Facehuggers, Queen are all prone
    new Xeno-efreeti and Xeno-beetle will spawn on Argul's turn


    map is updated (I hope)

    Valum is KO'd
    Rasso has no Beetle\pilots left






    TOP OF ROUND 6!

    Korvaq remembers his knowledge of the space/time continuum and begins to see patterns with this whole mess....


    Korvaq will "trade in" his remaining Bull Strength and Heroism for Karma:  1d20 + prime + level + mythic tier:

    Roll(1d20)+14:
    13,+14
    Total:27

    That should be 700 karma returned.  Korvaq will "conjure" a True Seeing scroll for himself (1125)

    Korvaq has 145 karma remaining

    Is that a standard action or full round?  move action?

    A complete transaction (sale + purchase) is a full round action

    a sale only = move action
    a purchase only (using existing karma) = standard action

    selling multiple items at a time seems fine, it's just 1 transaction

    actually.. it won't matter.

    Korvaq now spends a Hero Point (1 remaining) to use the scroll.

    UMD - 25 needed

    Roll(1d20)+18:
    10,+18
    Total:28

    that was a little close....

    Korvaq now has True Seeing active and is looking for Rasso. As soon as he sees him, if he does, he will relay the position via the mind link (should be a free action).

    True Seeing 7 minutes remaining
    Heroism - 23 rounds remaining
    Bull Str. - 24 rounds remaining.

    AC - 24, Touch 17
    HP - 108
    20 pts. Fire Resistance.

    Yes, full round action

    cheers good idea!

    Ok, so technically Korvaq cannot "see" Rasso with True Seeing.  However, you creatively used karma  and you have the correct "intention + action".  

    Korvaq can see that the "black hole" is not actually what it seems.  It isn't an illusion, per se, as it actually is a black hole.  It is also a portal to somewhere else.  The door appears to be "open" as Rasso can cast spells through the door and send creatures through.  Korvaq cannot see what is on the other side, but there is "somewhere" else through the door.  Korvaq's understanding of the space\time continuum tells him that they would be crushed into spaghetti if they entered a black hole, but his instincts tell him that they could pass through the event horizon (localized on the map) and end up somewhere else.

    Korvaq relays this information to the party via Argul's mind link (free)

    Action: Usually none. In most cases, a Knowledge check doesn't take an action (but see "Untrained," below).

    nah, go ahead now, especially if it relates to using the True Seeing and might be part of what information Korvaq sends via the mental link

    ok...

    Knowledge Planes (space/time) - can this hole be closed, and, if so, would this sever Rasso's link to this dimension and thus end his threat to the queen?

    Could Korvaq or anyone else travel through the portal to Rasso?

    Know. Planes:

    Roll(1d20)+17:
    19,+17
    Total:36




    Knowledge Arcana (tech) - is there something that Korvaq can rig to shut the portal?

    Know. Arcana:

    Roll(1d20)+17:
    18,+17
    Total:35

    damned nice rolls!

    Yes....  Temporarily only, though, as Rasso has the ability to open other portals.  The black holes are his versions of your rainbow portals.  Remember, he left via a black hole on Salyut Station.

    The Wasps that have 3 Necron riflemen and a Necon Pilot grappled will fly their full movement straight up 50' and then release their grappled combatants, dropping them for falling damage.

    The Xeno-Beetle attempts to travel through the portal, back the way it came, as if retreating from the battle in fear.

    The face huggers, Xeno-Frito (patent pending), and Argul delay actions pending resolution of these actions.

    The Xeno-Beetle disappears from view.  It does look like it shrinks into spaghetti as it enters the black hole, but upon reflection, things looked like they bigger right before they "popped" into real space when deployed onto the battle map

    Argul flies 20 ft up and 30 ft over to 60 - S, a position within 30ft of the 3 closest wasps (relevant in a moment).

    He Spends $2500 gold/Karma on a Type I Bag of Holding.

    Then, As a swift action, Argul expends one use of mythic power to inspire a tactical advance on the field of battle.

    ADVANCE, Marshall's Order: This allows you and each of your allies within 30 feet to take either a single move action of the character's choice or a 5-foot step, as long as you or your ally has the ability to take such an action (for example, an unconscious character still can't take an action). The action granted by this ability doesn't count toward the number or type of actions a creature is allowed to take on its turn.

    This grants and an additional move action to the WASPS and ARGUL.

    The Wasps (except for the farthest away), all Facehuggers, Xeno-Frito, and Argul all charge through the portal. They align for as widely of a dispersed deployment on arrival on the other side as they can achieve, aiming to deter easy AoE targeting.

    If the creatures with remaining attacks can use them upon arrival, they might once we get a hold of the situation!

    Round 6

    Argul 18, Wasps, Facehuggers,Xeno-efreeti, Xeno-beetle
    NECRON Warriors 15,
    Zang, Air Elemental  14,  Zang, Rhino, Water Elemental  
    Rasso 14
    Cmdr Ignis 10
    Repair swarms 10
    Brick 5
    Cmdr Valum 4
    Necron Pilots + Flying Bombadier Beetles  1


    Rasso is effectively out of useful forces on the map (not counting a couple leftover Necrons)

    I am not going to reveal what Argul sees on the other side.... yet.  

    Everyone has this 1 rd to do something:  attempt to close the portal, follow Argul inside or whatever else you want.  Tactically, I don't care about distance on the map, if you want to follow Argul you just can.

    Everyone gets 1 turn, sequence doesn't really matter as it's only Zang, Brick and Korvaq (and friends).  When everyone has acted or chosen not to act, then this scene will end.

    final map

    ...Korvaq will have an appropriate speech on his next turn.

    "I am Korvaq, son of Martok, Chancellor of the Klingon Empire! Rasso, you are a coward and a worm! Show yourself, pujwI (weakling) - oblivion awaits you!!"

    Brick Rockman considers the ratings vs risk and beckons the camera to follow before bolting through the portal.

    Brick's biggun will maneuver to spray the other swarm and necron on line 55.  If he can also catch the one on 61 he will.

    if everyone is going through the hole now, Korvaq will delay until his turn to see if Rasso has the same idea and tries to come here after the others leave

    There is no turn sequence anymore, you just get 1 action or a pass.
