"No one remedy Tensi, we need her to remain Jinxed so that we can keep Cronk's Angel around."  Arthur then turns to Alexis.  "Yes, my strategy for you using that Healing staff is definitely not working as I had planned.  May I please have it back?"

OOC: Once Arthur has the staff back, Alexis' attack should switch to using the Staff of Ennon on the Shard from the Front Row.

OOC: Also, for auto-rolling purposes, once Arthur has the staff back, assume he continuously uses it on Tensi. :wink:

Is probably depressed.  Real life sucks, yo.

OOC: Going to be busy for the rest of the day, so Arthur's going to reiterate each round that Tensi should not be Remedied until she is at 6 Health or less.

Arthur whacks Tensi with the Healing Staff. "Remember, no one Remedy Tensi until it is absolutely necessary."

Is probably depressed.  Real life sucks, yo.

OOC: Should Tesni really be confused from Arthur targeting her with the Healing Staff?  

I'll pay back the person who revives Bal the cost of the phoenix essence.  His KO was my tactical error.  I really didn't think there was any way for him to survive this battle so I had him go all out.


Perhaps fight would go faster if Bal were revived...

Cronk will continue with current plan of getting Cronk's Angel to stick around otherwise.

OOC: Zeph, that's twice now my Gold count hasn't gone up after I rolled a Shield; I should be at 239 Gold.  Between the previous Wren Quests and the way Boomers treats Atramor, I'm beginning to think you don't like Rogues. :tongue:

"Believe me, Sir Cronk, I would revive him if I had the Essence.  It's Tensi's choice, though; she has our last Essence, after all."

Is probably depressed.  Real life sucks, yo.

Haldor keeps back behind Cronk's iron guard while the others rain fire upon their foe, before quickly jumping out and swinging heavily at Ennoc's Splinter from the front row.

OOC: ...and now I should be at 289. :laugh:

"All right, Haldor, heal Cronk.  Cronk, you and I will use our Healing Staffs on Tensi.  Alexis, you attack the Shard once from the BACK row.  No one else attack."


The Plan for Round 14
Cronk v. Tensi (Healing Staff)
Cronk v. Tesni (Healing Staff)
Tesni v. nothing
Arthur v. Tesni (Healing Staff)
Bal v. nothing
Bal v. Nothing
Alexis v. Splinter - Back Row
Alexis v. nothing
Sasha v. nothing
Haldor v. Heal Cronk
Triad v. retrieve shuriken
Gray v. Conditionally heal Cronk if (and only if) Haldor fails

Is probably depressed.  Real life sucks, yo.

Very well, Arthur.  Tesni, hold still.  Cronk must bash Tesni with healing stick twice from back row.  For some reason, Cronk's Angel likes it.

Bal- I will sit back and sharpen my daggers.  Then I will try to compose a ballad of our exploits today.  Did anyone bring a lute with them?

Bal- I don't know how to play the flute.  No one has any stringed instruments at all?  Maybe it should just be an epic poem instead.
