I wasn't attempting to rape him, I was merely trying to see if catching him off guard would provoke a response of some kind. Not that I expected anything.

Erm... how can Bortek miss Quill and Gosok on his own turn, then still interrupt Quill's turn for another attack?

Bortek had a free action attack triggered by being bloodied. I did mention that bloodied condition can trigger stuff at times, this is one of them.

Not like it's the only kind of thing that can interrupt a turn, both immediate interrupt, immediate reaction and opportunity actions can be *only* taken on another creature's turn, in response to a trigger (two examples of such would be Opportunity Attacks - which are immediate interrupts opportunity actions triggered by someone moving without shifting or teleporting while near enemy or using a ranged attack near enemy; and Quill's combat challenge which is an immediate interrupt that triggers when a marked target makes an attack that doesn't include her or shifts while adjacent to her)

Those last three words are particularly important - it means that until next turn, he doesn't have to worry about being marked by me, since I'm not next to the sod.

Also even if Quill isn't adjacent, the guy is still marked so he still takes a -2 to attacks not including Quill as a target. Also was the attack that hit me an area attack? My shield gives me resist 2 all against ranged and area attacks.

Edit: Ok posted. My god if you can't finish him this round mr.shouty is going to make a reappearance. I mean they guy has 'dead' written all over him, literally.

Nope, close attack - still AoE but not area for purpose of that shield of yours. That is a good question though, starting next combat I'm going to have to put up some sort of tags for what kind of attack did just hit you, remind me if I forget.

Oh and as for finishing him off - he still has a decent chunk of hp. You might just kill him off, but it's not a sure thing yet :]

Well, the IRC client crashed out when the server was rebooted, so I didn't see anything.

Thought you'd do an update when the round ended.  Anyway, I'll make my move in the next hour or so.

Edit: Did you forget to add the coordinates to the lastest map?

Generally speaking I'm only doing updates when monsters move unless:
a) something interrupts the flow like that bloodied attack after Quill's turn
b) I notice something in player moves that might cause a need for new map for clarity
c) someone explicitly calls for a map update to better understand current situation
Otherwise you are expected to proceed with your moves.

And yes I forgot to add the coordinates, for some reason the mapping software doesn't remember the setting after being closed :/
Turn update a little bit later, once I woke up fully.

--- Posts merged ---

So that's that for this combat. Since that was the second encounter in row you were awarded a milestone. These usually happen every other encounter and grant you an additional Action Point and sometimes magic items interact with them (in past you were also limited to 1 item daily power per day + 1 per milestone but that limitation got removed). Per houserule I'm also letting you recover a spent daily power other than the ones coming from items - since nobody had more than one of these spent I just listed who regained what.

I've added a listing of damage type changing weapons to the first post of this thread to track their on/off status more easily, so those of you that have one keep an eye on it and correct me if I forget to update it. Do mind that I am going assume they get turned off when sheathed, and there will be times you are assumed to sheathe weapons unless you explicitly say you don't (like when going to extended rest, or are in town where you don't expect trouble... yet, or if you need both of your hands, etc.).

Aside of that first OOC post now also has data similar to the one I post at end of encounters but calculated in context of whole campaign and a list of who dealt a killing blow to what monster. Oh and xp tracking. Enjoy.

Edit: I also intend to talk more about monster types on account of Bortek being slightly special but that'll come later today.

Does that mean that a character with 2 magic items with daily powers used to be able to only use one of these powers before reaching a milestone? And that limitation was present only in some earlier version of 4E rules?

Indeed it does. A small correction though, I forgot it also increased by 1 per tier, so an epic tier character could use three item daily powers before having to wait for a milestone.

I don't have time to get myself into story mode right now, but I'll have plenty this evening. Regardless, unless anyone has a brilliant other plan, I propose an extended rest - what's the time of day in game, btw? - some time soon.

If the DM is OK with it then lets rest. There are ways around your lack of healing surges though.

I don't keep exact track of time unlike in Hackmaster but generally it is not terribly late into the day - that ship was fast. And aside from your surge deficit (which slave just proposed to fix with a ritual) you are in pretty decent shape party wise ;)
