    LoS....  if this were a spell, I would say that you don't have LoS\LoE, but the description of the ability doesn't list any range, verbal\somatic gestures or anything.  It's as if the elements just obey your desires, so.....



    a crudely shaped flaming dragon appears off the port side stern about 15ft above the Cog, which is about 35ft in the air

    it seems to go unnoticed for a moment, until Unfeather chirps up, "<sqwak> pretty bird!  pretty bird! <sqwak>"

    the table game goes quiet and you can hear murmurs of "well... blow me down"  "what in the blazes?"  and from the Tiefling whores "ooooh"  "how pretty!"  



    since I just realized that we are dealing with some 3d combat, I added elevations in red.  

    ground level = main deck of the Cog with the gaming table
    fore\aft decks = +5ft
    water = -20ft
    fire bird = +15ft
    Unfeathers = +20ft up in the rigging

    Renda has +7 for Athletics, I can beat the DC for "strength" climbing by taking 10, and have 45 ft of movement. I want to stealthily climb up (20 ft of difficult terrain = 40 ft of movement) and cling there unseen until the next turn.

    Stealth =

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

    20 + 6 = 26

    Ha! I'm not gonna have any dice left once the fighting starts!

    study technically, there is no "take 10" rule in 5e, just FYI.  it's fine this time, but next time please just make all rolls.  

    study you make me check my rules, but your actions are legal.   the athletics check is not considered an action, it's just part of the move with difficult terrain of climbing.
    so you have move (w athletics) +  Hide  (action) = stealthy climb  cheers

    Stealth rules are kinda wonky if 5e to be honest.  usually the sneaking part of Stealth also makes you go at half speed, but 5e doesn't seem to go there.


    Renda scales the side of the cog as quietly as a spider.  He now has a visual of the deck as shown on the map.  Renda is at elevation 0

    Dig it, you had something about it being slippery and such, so I wasn't sure if you wanted an ability roll to ascend.




    Renda' looks at all the food on the deck, trying to decide which one looks like it might taste best...

    Sjon Barker Druid 8
    HP: 57/57
    AC: 16
    Slots:4/3/2/2 (4/3/3/2 max)
    Wild Shape: 2 (2 max)


    Sjon will quietly climb the side of the cog using his full movement (30' = 15' climb to LoS) and ready an action to cast Poison Spray if any pirate leans his face over the rail within range.

    STR check for climbing:
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20" : 5

    Stealth check:
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +2" : 2 + 2 = 4

    Yikes. Sorry guys.

    perfect stat block.... not so perfect dice Sad

    I guess the dice make sense though.....  Sjon can't find a good hand hold on the side of the boat and flops about in the water making noise as he fails to climb  <splash, sploosh, thump, flounder, flounder, splash>


    study seems like you have 1 too many actions though.  I see a move, hide and ready in there.  It's up to you Joe, you can either hide or ready as your action with the move.  You already rolled the Stealth but I could also see an argument that since you failed the initial climb, there was no chance to Hide and thus keep the Ready.

    Let me know

    regardless, the noise seems to have alerted the baddies on deck, who now join initiative

    at 19, the Stout Sgt with the fancy hat alerts to the noise off the starboard side.  He pushes the whore out of the way and takes the most direct path to L-6, drawing his sword as he goes.  He looks over the edge of the boat....  

    If Sjon has a readied action, he can attack

    @Matt, I don't think Renda would get an AoO Reaction unless he has reach, since the Stout Sgt's path would be 1 north, then diagonal NE, then E. If he does have reach, go ahead and make an AoO roll too

    Stout Sgt still has an action, if he survives Sjon's spell and is able to act

    Stout Sgt calls out in a commanding voice, one that is used to be being obeyed, "To arms, you lazy sea dogs!"

    He takes his last 5ft to step back away from the edge and  uses Ready action.  He will attack anyone that climbs up and gets within range.  He doesn't seem to notice Renda hanging off the side.....

    also at 19, you hear a deep gruff voice growl back in reply from the captain's quarters,  "Aarrrggghhh,  always trouble when I am balls deep in a pair of fresh whores!"  
    His action is unseen, but easy to guess that he gets himself untangled from his companions and prepares to enter the fight next turn

    Stat block to come

    Hawkes will climb and try to be quiet
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +3" :

    8 + 3 = 11 to climb

    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +5" :

    12 + 5 = 17 stealth

    Near the top, "Avast! D'ya think I come aplunderin on my lonesome. I ain't come for a fight," Hawkes apologies. "My birdie saw me in distress and led me leeward of ye. My ship was sacked by pirates; worst kind of em. Left me adrift for a day. Current brought me from yonder," he babbles with a gesture as he legs over the top.

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

    13 + 6 = 19

    DC is 15 to climb the side of the boat from the water, so Hawkes doesn't make it up or over. He can still try his deception from the water, of course.

    Hawkes will still engage in conversation via deception. Is that an action, or can he try to climb again?

    Sam casts Invisibility on himself and climbs over the side...

    Roll(1d20)+3:
    20,+3
    Total:23

    I assume that succeeds, lol...

    Where did the Captain's voice come from? Sam wants to position himself right outside his door so that he can get him coming out?

    lol! try to follow along guys, this is now the 3rd time this issue has been asked....

    climbing = move + athletics check with DC 15 (medium difficulty) to scale the side of a boat from the water with no handholds and being all wet.  (again, if you found something to climb it would be easier DC 10)

    HIDE is an ACTION, so if you try to climb steathly (which you rolled), that is your action for the turn and you can't try to climb again



    talking is not an action on your turn, it would take your reaction if not on your turn and would be limited to a very short utterance

    yes, DC 15 for the climb.  20 ft up and over the rails.  climbing is 1/2 speed as difficult terrain.  casting the spell is your action, so how much movement did you use climbing?  please declare your coordinate on the map using grid if you made it over the rail

    the captain's voice came from the lower level of the back half of the boat, you would guess the stairs going down at O-7

    and please post stat block with AC, HP, buffs\spells

    Crispy sighs at his friend's obvious difficulties getting it up. He lets the spirit of his draconic ancestors fill his bloodstream as he roars "We will have our vengeance for Gundrin!!". Crispy casts Fly and rockets out of the water:

    Fly
    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: Touch
    Components: V S M (A wing feather from any bird)
    Duration: Up to 10 minutes
    You touch a willing creature. The target gains a flying speed of 60 feet for the duration. When the spell ends, the target falls if it is still aloft, unless it can stop the fall.
    At Higher Levels: When you cast this spell using a spell slot of 4th level or higher, you can target one additional creature for each slot level above 3rd.

    He uses 30' of his 60' to rise to J-5 (+10').

    As the cog's deck comes into view during his ascent Crispy will expend 2 Sorcery Points to cast Scorching Ray as a bonus action:


    Scorching Ray
    Casting Time 1 action
    Range 120 feet
    Components V S
    Duration Instantaneous
    You create three fire rays. You can hurl them at one target or several. Make a ranged spell attack for each ray. On a hit, the target takes 2d6 fire damage.

    He will target Stout Sgt. at L-7 with all three rays:

    1.Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +6" :
    10 + 6 = 16
    Dam: Result of the throw of dice "2d6" :
    2 + 3 = 5

    2. Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +6" :
    4 + 6 = 10

    3. Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +6" :
    12 + 6 = 18
    Dam: Result of the throw of dice "2d6" :
    5 + 1 = 6

    Crispy will use his remaining flight movement to clear off to D-2 (+10') and await his chance to make another pass.

    Crispy blasts the Stout Sgt twice with Scorching Rays!  He is hurt, but still up. His feather plume is scorched, which seems to upset him.
    the 2nd was correctly a miss



    Crispy gets +1 Inspiration Point!  
    The IP is earned for both a spectacular visual and for being the only player to correctly take their turn lol!

    (Renda was close, but no "take 10" in 5e and less visually dramatic action)

    Awarding inspiration is an effective way to encourage
    roleplaying and risk-taking. As explained in the Player's
    Handbook, having inspiration gives a character an
    obvious benefit: being able to gain advantage on one
    ability check, attack roll, or saving throw. Remember
    that a character can have no more than one inspiration
    at a time.

    But can she SEE Crispy? “The moon is partially obscured by clouds.“ and Crispy is now 40’ away from her in the night sky over dark water and the raised stern of the ship is between them...

    at 11, the 2 bearded pirates go....

    K-9 pirate flips the gaming table on its side and now enjoys 1/2 cover (action)
    he draws his pistol (move)
    done

    K-7 draws his pistol as he moves to G-6 taking aim at the newly Hexed Crispy from a better vantage of the fore deck.  

    Sadly, he is unaware of Renda and Sam lurking off the deck and will pass through both their threat zones to get to G-6


    bounce do Renda or Sam want to use their Reaction for an AoO?
    Sam would have the first opportunity, as the pirate passes through his TZ first

    study a fair question!

    Yes, she can see Crispy, though he wouldn't know how or why.


    study she is 1/2 elven and enjoys 60ft of Darkvision

    and just to clarify, both Renda and Sam are "unseen attackers" against this poor sap. so you get ADVANTAGE on your attack rolls, but reveal yourself whether you hit or miss

    very good, but Sam gets the first bite at this apple

    if he passes or doesn't kill the pirate, Renda can perform his stated action, otherwise he remains an unseen lurker

    Matt agrees that it would be tactically best to wait and go for it on the next round, but Renda isnt much for strategy...

    Renda does his best croc munch attack and rends the pirate across his chest, spilling his guts on the deck like so much chum!

    dead body = difficult terrain

    He strums a snappy game-show theme song and Visciously Mocks (action) Renda

    What do you get a girl that likes crocodiles?

    new shoes!


    Renda must make a Wisdom save or be hit with 2d4 psychic damage and Disadvantage on his next attack roll

    Result of the throw of dice "2d4" :

    4 + 1 = 5

    as a bonus action, he strum, strum, thumps.....strum, strum, thumps..... his guitar several times to the rhythm of "We will rock you" by the Queen's band and gives Stout Sgt a d8 of Bardic Combat Inspiration

    __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    at 4, the patrol ranger takes a step forward to P-6 drawing his bow.  He aims at Renda, as he is only human and can't see Crispy well enough to target him

    The ranger uses his bonus action to put Hunter's Mark on Renda and then takes 1 shot with his long bow

    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +7" :

    16 + 7 = 23

    hit!

    Result of the throw of dice "1d8 +1d6 +3" :

    5 + 2 + 3 = 10 piercing damage, non magical

    at 3, the 2 sleepers awaken, but they were not sleeping pirates, they are Rogan's 2 pet Worgs!  



    they can't do anything but wake up this turn, luckily for the party

    __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    the 2 Tiefling whores are not in combat but they are scared, one moves onto the steps leading down at H-9 and the other ducks behind the overturned table granting her full cover.  they are no threat but they may get in the way

    Renda has the taste of blood now. He lets out a hideous combination of howl and hiss, then darts up the stairs towards his next prey...

    GM, here is my intent. I have 2 attack actions and 1 bonus action that grants an additional unarmed attack, and 45 ft of movement. I want to go up the stairs to engage pirate @ 8-G, and then assuming I have additional attack capability left, come back down the other stairs to engage pirate @ 10-I with remaining attacks. I assume this will require a square of difficult terrain to cross the corpse I intend to create in the first engagement.

    All will be Bite/piercing attacks. atk and dmg rolls below:


    ATK#1 To Hit:
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +5" :

    6 + 5 = 11

    Dmg if Hits:
    Result of the throw of dice "1d6 +5" :

    Renda's plan all seems fine and legal. With 45ft he could indeed make the rounds. However, Renda's tour-de-claws is stopped at G-7 as he only succeeds in hitting the witty bard one time which is not enough to drop him. Upon closer inspection, Renda notices that he is wearing a breastplate and seems light on his feet.

    I will get the map updated later, i am cleaning house for 2 showings this avternoon.

    Sjon is up, only change is Renda is now at G-7

    Sjon Barker Druid 8
    HP: 57/57
    AC: 16
    Slots:4/3/2/2 (4/3/3/2 max)
    Wild Shape: 2 (2 max)

    Sjon  pulls his upper body above waterline, turns to Hawkes and says "See you topside" as bristly feathers begin to emerge from his skin.

    As a bonus action, he uses his Wild Shape  ability to transform into a Giant Eagle.

    His wings unfold as he takes flight. He ascends 25' into the air, notices the treacherous dog at L-7 and moves 5' to M-6 where he attacks.

    Beak attack roll
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +5" : 6 + 5 = 11

    Beak damage (just in case)
    Result of the throw of dice "1d6 +3" : 5 + 3 = 8

    Talons attack roll
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +5" : 12 + 5 = 17

    Talons damage
    Result of the throw of dice "2d6 +3" : 4 + 4 + 3 = 11

    After his attacks, Sjon swoops away from the boarding side of the ship and heads behind it, staying 15' above the water.  His remaining 50' (given elevation changes) should be just enough for him to end up at T-8.


    Giant Eagle
    Large beast, Neutral Good
    Armor Class 13
    Hit Points 26 (4d10+4)
    Speed 10 ft., fly 80 ft.

    Thanks for all the stats!

    Now the party is starting to take flight and get after the pirate scum cheers



    Sjon misses with his beak but hits with the talons.  The Stout Sgt deflects some of the attack at the last second using his BM ability Parry!

    Roll(1d8)+3:
    2,+3
    Total:5

    he takes the other 6 and likes it so much, he uses his Reaction for an opportunity attack as Sjon attempts to fly away since he didn't use Disengage when moving out of Stout Sgt's threat zone

    study I don't think he can use a bonus action, since it's not his turn, you got lucky there Big Bird

    attack with his scimitar
    Roll(1d20)+5:
    20,+5
    Total:25

    cheers CRIT!

    Stout Sgt (hat) = 19
    XXXX 19
    Hawkes 16
    Sam 14
    Crispy 13 FLYING
    Witch  13
    bearded (1) 11
    bard 8
    ranger 4
    Worgs 3

    Tiefling whores 0


    Stout Sgt is up himself at 19

    first he will use get his Second Wind (bonus action) to recover
    Roll(1d10)+5:
    4,+5
    Total:9

    9 HP restored

    He realizes that he can't reach Renda, Sjon or Crispy and he already used his bonus action so he can't command  anyone else either....  Stout will move to L-6, sword at the ready to strike if he sees anyone else on the side of the boat....

    study Sam is invisible and remains undetected.

    XXXX (Rogan) is up at 19 but Sam can make an Opportunity Attack since Stout Sgt is busy looking for other swimmers.  Stout Sgt will see Hawkes and call out to alert the others to finish his turn. Then the action moves to Rogan



    Sam?

    OUCH!  nice hit, but Stout Sgt lives up to his name and stays on his feet.

    The female witch is frustrated that her LoS is blocked by both the mast and the tiefling whore, she remains at the ready

    Sam is now visible on the side of the boat which fulfills the witch's Readied action "cast Eldritch Blast if she sees any enemy at the side of the boat"  


    Eldritch Blast 1 of 2 against Sam
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +7" :

    16 + 7 = 23

    hit!  

    damage 1d10+4 (agonizing blast for CHA damage to blast)
    Result of the throw of dice "1d10 +4" :

    6 + 4 = 10

    Sam is also knocked 10ft back (Repelling Blast) which puts him back into the water  Twisted Evil
    there is no save or way to negate the effect

    Sam is now at K-3 and -20ft from the deck level 0


    R e p e l l in g B l a s t
    Prerequisite: eldritch blast cantrip
    When you hit a creature with eldritch blast, you can push
    the creature up to 10 feet away from you in a straight line.


    She gets a 2nd Eldritch Blast at 5th and since Sam is no longer a viable target.... she will fire at Renda who has conveniently moved back into her LoS

    at Renda
    Result of the throw of dice "1d20 +7" :

    5 + 7 = 12

    a sickly green ray whizzes in Renda's vacinity though not particularly close

    map updated




    more updates, stand by....
