    Well

    Tarquin is, ofcourse, screwed in a fair fight. Atleast he should be, else he is over level 20, and that is silly.

    But ofcourse he doesnt fight fair.
    I really should see about getting a new signature.

    Re: The Order of the Stick

    I'm more curious to see how well he fares in the fight before cheating/being smart.
    -We can't abandon protocol just because we have an advantage. We have to give him a chance to see the errors of his blue ways. To lay down his arms and meet us as fellow men, at the table of peace, where we can work together towards a better world. A world that's better, because we poisoned his food at that table and stabbed him in the eye with a fork, and taken all his stuff.

    Plot rules say that a lone fighter against a whole team of warriors has a much better chance than a whole team of warriors against a whole team of warriors. So.

    Considering his thing IS cheating, he's probably already got a plan to deal with them, or he's just trying to distract them from escaping. After all, this encounter was planned out by him hours ago.

    Well yes, but he looks like he wants a scuffle too.

    Tarquin makes it so hard to remember to root for the heroes, especially in this situation. Depending on how well the fight starts will probably (inversely) determine who I'll end up rooting for.

    And yet despite all of what just happened, still don't know who should be afraid of fighting who.

    Roy can probably tell that he's not fighting Thog at this point. I mean, it's obvious. Thog just isn't that clever.

    And he obviously doesn't know Elan the way Thog did.

    Re: The Order of the Stick

    All i want to know is, why does he have more actions per turn than he is supposed to have?

    Stupidly fantastic game-breaking items?

    Wiw@I'm not quite sure on D&D terminology.

    Re: The Order of the Stick

    It means that Hold Person failed, likely because Tarquin is higher level than the OotS.

    e. If hold person had succeeded, he wouldn't be able to do anything. Same ultimate effect, slightly different reason.

    Re: The Order of the Stick

    Hold Person is like
    BAM you cant touch a muscle for x number of turns.
    It is a fairly low level spell, though, and has a not-particularly-high will save. Why the fuck did Durkon use it agaisnt a WTF high level like Tarquin, who almost certainly has a crazy will save? Why didnt he do something USEFUL?

    Because he believed that Tarquin was Thog, who presumably has the willpower of a particularly dense box of rocks?

    ??????????????

    Re: The Order of the Stick

    Yeah, this battle is not following anything close to d&d numbers. The only magic item that passively and constantly regens health that i know about is the Ring of Regeneration, which only recovers 1 hp per turn. These guys should have well over some hundred.
    Even with a lifesteal weapon of some sort, that is hardly a lot in the course of a single battle.

    Re: The Order of the Stick

    According to the OotS forum, it could be a Ring of Fast Healing, instead (the epic level version of the Ring of Regeneration).

    Also, plot > rules.

    Tarquin is now my favourite character.

    Why? Just because of that mask? That's just a great one; more people need to do that in similar contexts.
