Good plan, but Olivia has suffered for her efforts.

Had to use rule in Hyboria's Finest (cannot remember if you have it?), page: 40. Pressing the Body's Limits.

But I let you decide what Ability is reduced (non-permanent of course).

Two Choices:

1 pt of Con or

1 pts of Dex?

She also had to make a Fatigue check:

Roll(1d20)+7:
3,+7
Total:10; she failed and is fatigued.

She'll pick Dex. She doesn't actually use that much.

How long would i have to rest to recover from the fatigue?

Yip, thought so, just did not want to be to presumptuous.

Skill and Init, etc will drop, cannot run or charge but she will have to endure!

Fatigue would recover normally as rules state, with 8 hrs rest.

Bit busy, will try do fight tomorrow!

Need some tactics from your characters, plans of what they want to do!

1: It a 5ft wide tunnel.

2: The Darkness, gives mis-chance.

3: Not sure Olivia can bluff a creature she cannot see, let alone sneak attack it. Let try sort this rule before continuing!

4: Aelia would have to tumble through creature space, but as it dark, it might not be allowed lest she collide with a wall. :)

Not sure I ever done a fight in the dark with this game!

Note to self: get Blindfight...

I don't see anything that says you can't feint when you can't see, but that is of little importance since you definitely can't do precision attacks when you can't see so she can't sneak attack it anyway! Mind you it may have some trouble too depending on what sense it is using.

Aelia will hang back for the moment. She can't dodge in a 5' corridor and she can't sneak attack it in the dark, so she is not going to be much help. Olivia will be on full expertise and just do normal strikes to try and wear it down, or drive it off

:) You did, at 9th level.

Right, no Sneak Attacking!

I believe Aelia can still dodge properly, it only when she lacking a free 5ft square beside her and she has one behind her!


Initiative:

Creature: Roll(1d20)+6: 13,+6; Total:19.
Olivia: Roll(1d20)+6: 11,+6; Total:17.
Aelia: Roll(1d20)+9: 2,+9; Total:11.

Ah HA! so I did!

Noted on the dodge but I still think it would be too risky for Aelia to try to get past a fight in the pitch dark... if she had blindfighting too, maybe.

Ah, I got rules, page 219, 2nd edition...

Not good for Aelia...

Blinded Characters, cannot dodge or parry, but it not matter as in theory, she getting full cover from Olivia at present!

Olivia is in a a reasonable position now with Blindfighting and the creature just missed her.

Can you pick a number between 1 and 3 and make a listen rill for Olivia?

This is a bit slow, but I want to get it right, and want to give you the chance your character deserves!

It dark, she cannot feel her way as, she is concern on defence:

She is now a Parry 27, as she fatigued and +7/+2 attack (but at least it two attacks).

You must tell me a square she wants to attack, it not easy to explain, but I need to know if you comprehend the combat.

The listen roll tells her the beast is directly in front of her, but not were, you must tell me exactly what your plan is!

Tell me in game talk, (hope you comprehend).

okay Olivia reckons it must be in the square in front of her. As i understand it, Aelia is behind her, walls on either side so ahead is the only option. Unless it has reach, of course.

Okay, that square was empty or she just missed with both attacks....

Need a new tactic for Olivia in 2nd round (It miss again)!

Olivia will judge that the laughter means she was doing something futile rather than narrowly missing, so she will take a 5 foot step forwards anad attack the square beyond

Right, Olivia is in a grapple, she resisted once, using Escape Artist, which is reduced from +16 to +14 as for -1 Dex damage and Fatigued.

She also lost a FP, (failed Will ST) as now she realises it no beast or Human, probably a "Demon of Hell!" FP now at 2.

I can only guess Olivia's intent, so wait till you tell me your plan for her!

She will make another effort to escape and if that doesn't work she will stab it as best she can.

If Aelia works out what's going on she will start stabbing it!

I will use and Escape Artist, even at +14, it better that Olivia's Grapple attempt, which is +11 at moment due to fatigue!

She would only be able to stab at creature with a light-weapon, the best she will be able to do is pommel of sword or unarmed combat.

She fails to break free, but she does feel she could if luck was on her side!

Edit: Aelia lost a FP also!

Note to you Kintire:

It making touch attacks; Olivia's Dodge is 14, it only need to hit that to start grapple with her, she gets no AoO as it is hidden from her in darkness!

Done a few more rounds and Olivia in a predicament.

She been in and out of grapple now for 10 rounds.

Olivia's hp: are drop from 71 to 32.

Now this happened?

Olivia: Atks: x2: Roll(1d20)+12: 19,+12; Total: 31; possible crit, 17 total, crit chance Yes (49%; miss, re-roll: 42% misses critical chance) missed. 2nd Atk: Roll(1d20)+8: 6,+8; Total:14, miss (Man-Serpent has dodge 15)!

Note: I will allow a re-roll with use of FP to do mischance roll again for her 1st attack.

Of course it could still miss, but I give you the choice of what to do!
