Triple Murder in Riderside, Rebooted [OOC]

Okay, it's been over two weeks since the last IC post, and we know what Scarab's doing, so I'm moving ahead.

Round 4 Recap

    [*:2tivo7tk]Fox leaps up, grabs his freeze rifle from Scarab's TK grip, and shoots her in the face, stunning her. She gains 3 HPs from this series of setbacks.

    [*:2tivo7tk]Avenger drags Vulture into the darkness; only Shark has a chance to see it, but he does not. Avenger rams his unholy claws into Vultures' back, and can feel his kidneys. Concentration check to maintain his Hellwasp Swarm... fails!

    [*:2tivo7tk]Scarab is shot in the face by a freeze ray and stunned, but she shakes it off. She attempts to counter Shark's Sharks, and succeeds.

    [*:2tivo7tk]Slamdance is stunned by a shark attack (from last round). He lost an HP on a re-roll, but gained another for the setback.

    [*:2tivo7tk]The Hellwasp swarm dissipates.

    [*:2tivo7tk]Shark, upon seeing his babies *pop*, collapses.

    [*:2tivo7tk]Vulture is stunned, and staggered. He'll be peeing blood for days.

Begin Round 5

Initiatives - Character - Condition - HPs

23+ - Fox - Undamaged

23- - Avenger - Undamaged - 1 HP

Fox curses, then disappears, from sight and Scarab's mental senses.

Is that a regular attack? Power Attack? (You appear to have listed a +13 to hit, but that's not Avenger's melee attack modifier, that'd be his Power Attack Grapple modifier.)

You'll need to make another Stealth check if you want to Sneak Attack.

Does Avenger really need to make a Stealth check vs. Shark, given that Shark can't see Avenger with Avenger's Stealth up? If he did take him by surprise, given how you've described the character's distracted state, I'd be surprised if he wasn't flat-footed. As for his attack modifier, I'd thought that catching someone flat-footed/by surprise provided +2 to hit. Was that correct?

... yes, b/c as I have stated before, his Notice is not so low/your Stealth so high that he has absolutely 0 chance of seeing you. It's a slim chance, yes, but it is a chance.

If he did take him by surprise, given how you've described the character's distracted state, I'd be surprised if he wasn't flat-footed.

If you take him by surprise, then, yes, he'd be flat-footed -- that' what "taking by surprise" means. But if his Notice check beats your Stealth check, you don't take him by surprise... hence my request for a Stealth check.

As for his attack modifier, I'd thought that catching someone flat-footed/by surprise provided +2 to hit. Was that correct?

Not quite: catching someone by surprise/making a surprise attack means they're flat-footed (lose Dodge bonus to defense) and suffer an additional -2 to Defense. Which I would be figuring in, so I don't need you adding to your attack :P

.... dang, I was mistaken, Taking 10 he actually has 0 chance of seeing you :oops:

Toughness save... fails by 14,so he's staggered & stunned. (If he'd failed by 1 more, he would've been KO'd).

'Course, now that you've let go of Vulture in order to smack Shark, Vulture's now free (though still staggered and with two bruises). What will he do? I'll let you know after I hear from Scarab and Slamdance. :twisted: (Or at least Slamdance.)

EDIT: This has been going on long enough (out-of-game; in-game it's only been 30 seconds), I'll fiat and say Avenger did realize Shark didn't see him, did power attack for one, and Shark's now KO'd.

I'm waiting for Scarab, next up in initiative.

Just to be clear, I'm bruised but no long stunned, correct?

Sorry for the delay.

The Scarab will take a Free Action to reconfigure her Psionics Array, followed by a Full Action to attempt to Mind Control "Shark." She'll take a Free Action to issue a command: "Take off your armor."

Opposed power check: 30.

EDIT: Did I say "Shark?" I meant Vulture. ;)

Hmm, is that going to jibe with Avenger punching the guy into unconsciousness?

...CRAP!!!

I misread, thinking it was Vulture who was unconscious and Shark who was staggered. My bad. I'll edit accordingly.

Sorry, had a wedding this weekend and hadn't had a chance to catch up.

Will post up shortly.

Still here. We're here to rescue this thread, not let it die a second time.

The Scarab will maintain the Mind Control effect on Vulture until his armor is off and he is securely restrained.

If none of the other present characters have any restraints, The Scarab will burn one of her remaining Hero Points for a temporary rank in the Equipment feat to provide them. She "pulls them out of her pocket."
