"Ooo, well chosen words elf, pardon me not knowing your name. It was something long that I can't quite remember at the moment.

"But as for you, 'demigod'. What would make us believe you have any elves whatsoever? Seriously? Since when have elves followed your type. You are clearly not an elf, unless I am insanely mistaken, and it's a rare thing indeed the day that 1000s of elves follow any race of peoples. I am more inclined to believe that you are either an outright liar or you are drunkard, who can mysteriously speak clearly. While I mention drunkenness, I would advise you, Eric, to watch what you put to your lips. I see that you have quite a stash of alcoholic beverages on your person, and it would not be a good thing for you to join our friend here in his...state of mind."

Most people just call my by my nickname "Erdy" even those I have known for quite a while can't quite spell Erdathcath properly, and my last name is even harder to spell.

The monk is right, elves would never follow someone like you!

"Well, if you don't believe in my army of thousands of elves... um... er... I wasn't expecting that response... uuuuuuuuuhhhhhh.... would you believe five and a half ticked-off cub scouts wielding pocketknives?"

"Well, at least you are getting somewhere closer to realm of reason. Perhaps the drunkenness is wearing away, eh?" :hmpf_bad:

Well, that does sound more likely, but due to your stuttering, I can pretty much assume you just need help with something, however, you don't know how to ask properly.

"Uh, er, um, yeah, whatever. I'm not drunk. I'm just semi-mad, thats all."

Well, that does sound more likely, but due to your stuttering, I can pretty much assume you just need help with something, however, you don't know how to ask properly.

Turning to hear the elf say this, a new fire lights up the semi-mad demi-god's eyes.

"I do NOT need your help, puny mortals! I don't not know why I asked you in the first place. But now I know one thing - since you will not join me... it is time for you to die!"

OOC: Don't worry, it is my first time as a druid, so I have no idea what I am doing. How do clerics normally attack?

I will attack Odzaph from the Back Row.

QM Note: What do you mean, how do they normally attack? You're not a cleric, you're a druid, so what does it matter how a cleric attacks... :look: That's Pretzel's problem :tongue:

Ah. You just say, if you're going to be attacking or healing. I'm assuming that your attacking :wink:

Ok, that makes things simple. And I can still use my handcannon, correct?

Having seemingly underestimated the stranger's strength, Eric decides to take a dose of Smelling Salts too, increasing his hitting power. As he sniffs the salts, he unsheaths Godricsleif, preparing to attack the following turn.

"I believe the round you sniff those Smelling Salts you can also attack, Eric," I say, as I mount my cross and fly forward. Striking the villain from the back row.

Nope, consuming an item counts as an action and thus uses up my turn.

Also, I forgot to post the battle order:

I shall gladly go first! Whatever remains of his body you guys can enjoy destroying! default_devg1.gif

Got to go for a few hours, just have my same attack being continued. Eric is in charge of Erdy.

But I believe with Smelling Salts it hastens you for this round as well, therefore enabling you to have two actions. :sceptic:

Okay, since I apparently do get a second turn this round, here's an updated Battle Order:

Erdathcath

Eric takes Smelling Salts

Eric attacks, front row

Results of Round One:

>Erdathcath vs. Odzaph - Aim

Eric takes smelling salts

Eric vs. Odzaph - Steal

>Pretzel vs. Odzaph - Critical Hit

To start off the battle, Erdy aims her handcannon and manages to cause 10 damage to Odzaph. Eric decides to take some smelling salts, and now feeling a little woozy he doesn't manage to hurt the demigod but instead steals from him 18 27 gold. The demigod is surprised for a second by this dirty trick, which is enough time for Monk Pretzel to perform a Critical Hit, striking Odzaph with 21 damage.

Party leader, please post the battle order. Everyone, choose your actions.

Eric, since you are encouraged, does that mean you should've stolen twice as much gold or does the encouraged state only count for attacks? Also, for which attacks do your gloves help? For your shield only, or also for "steal"?

I'll have to check about those Gloves in the R&D topic. I think I get +50% from all steal-based attacks, but I'm not sure :look: . Also, my Steal is not affected by my Mead, only my Ravage attack gets doubled :classic: (EDIT: and any other attack involving WP, of course).

Eric grunted at the measly 18 gold pieces he stole. With fire in his eyes, he charged the demi-god again.

Eric attacks from the front row, using Godricsleif (twice).

Battle Order:

Eric attacks

I zip behind the "demi-god" on my cross, and strike him from behind.

"Take that, scummy devil!"

I think it's safe to say that so long as we are not sustaining damage, we will keep on fighting like this, correct? :sceptic:

Sure, if you want me to keep auto-rolling the dice until one of you are hurt, then that would be fine. What does the Party Leader say about that?

So should I wait for The_Customizer to post or should we just assume that she will attack like previously?

I see no reason why she would change her attack, so go ahead and roll until one of us gets hurt :classic: .
