I don't think I ever allowed it, but it really shouldn't matter too much I guess :roll:

I would also you'd rather ask me to change the things since I stole the post and I have access to it (as well as any other moderator). Wears just got the first post making him a convenient victim :lol:

((Sorry, figured you'd be cool with it since we haven't technically started yet. Also, do you want me/Mort/Burns to ask you to change stuff too? Or are we allowed to abuse our awesome mod powers too? :P ))

That wasn't what was bothering me, just the fact they are from non core sources, but I guess they are similar enough that it doesn't matter.

I don't mind if you change stuff, just let me know before hand :P

Theis, are you waiting on player actions right now, or are we waiting on an update after each person posts?

I thought we were waiting for something to actually come attack us. If not, default action for Jakar is to chill where he is.

I was waiting for people to confirm if they wanted to just stand ready or if they were going to do something right away. I guess I can say that the monsters won't act between the player actions currently

With the highlighted turn order I was expecting to be prompted.

Yeah, I figured something was going to appear at some point in the order :) still, looks like group 1 is ready to roll now >:D

It also looks like we've largely been split into a martial and magic group (except for wears and spider, I think?). This could be interesting...

Yeah, I noticed that too. Me being in the martial group was just a coincidence though - Theis did the groups before knowing my class (or that I was even interested in joining :lol: ).

At the very least, assuming we've got similar opponents, we're going to see some very different approaches to this fight....

I'm a martial character at this level. I have small pool of healing and dragon breath, but other than that it's stabbing.

I just noticed that the highest INT score in our group is Rez, with 10. So we're basically Team "hit things and don't think about stuff too hard" :lol:

I don't know what your problem with the Toadstools is. They're fun guys.

...derp. Was just skimming through the Monk rules again, when I noticed the Martial Arts limitation on Simple Weapons only applies to weapons with "the two-handed or heavy property". There's no mention of being unable to actually use weapons two-handed, just that they cannot have those specific properties.

This is important because Quarterstaff's are Versatile, not two-handed. I figured I'd be forced to use it one-handed if I picked it up, but wielding it two-handed as a Monk is apparently fine by RAW/RAI...

Ah well, at least I know for next time. I'll just say Jakar had a brain-fart and didn't realise that the Quarterstaff was an option (9 INT lol :roll: ).

Yes, quarterstaff is just fine for a monk, and is better damage dice than the monk die for a while.

But have you not considered the possibility of using your fists as martial weapons, then dual wield them? :roll:

Like I said, I figured I could use it but only one-handed. Didn't stop to consider how common stick-fighting is in real-life martial arts :lol:

Technically I already get that, since I can make an unarmed strike as a bonus action (without the damage penalty too) :roll: :P

How high are the walls, Theis? If Viskek gave Jakar a boost, could he jump over it?

30 ft high, so not really feasible, maybe in another arena :P
