Klumenos

The Minoan also draws an arrow, he takes aim at the farthest of the 3 closest--the one in  front of the pen/filed at the house to the southeast of ours and to the west of the island.

Outside
The undead advance.  Two more appear, one from the trees screening the bridge, and one from the house in the north.

Indattu stalks off.
Roll 85 + 120 Skill = 205
Result: (Rolled on the Extremely Hard MM Table) -120 penalty to undead’s alertness rolls, 44 feet covered (120% of 1/2 base walk speed)

Undead rolls to notice him:
Roll 33 + 10 Alertness - 120 Penalty = -77
Roll 74 + 10 Alertness - 120 Penalty = -36
Roll 63 + 10 Alertness - 120 Penalty = -47
Roll -85 + 10 Alertness - 120 Penalty = -195
Roll 73 + 10 Alertness - 120 Penalty = -37
Roll 59 + 10 Alertness - 120 Penalty = -51
Roll 24 + 10 Alertness - 120 Penalty = -86
Roll 24 + 10 Alertness - 120 Penalty = -86
Roll 54 + 10 Alertness - 120 Penalty = -56

All of the undead are too terribly distracted to notice the thief.

On the Roof
Lahwi-Addu takes aim U1 (the Class III):
Roll 77 + 76 Short Bow + 10 Deliberate -30 DB = 133
AT: 1
Result: 19 Hits, “D” Puncture Critical.
Crit Roll: 13
Result: -10 Action
Remaining Hits: 81
Narrative:  Lahwi-Addu takes aim at the fastest and most aware creature.  His arrow thuds into the undead’s middle section, but does not stop the creature.

Klumenos takes aim at U3
Roll 68 + 102 Short Bow + 10 Deliberate -10 DB = 170
AT: 1
Result: 22 Hits, “E” Puncture Critical.
Crit Roll: 62
Result: +5 Hits, 2 Rounds Stun, 3 Bleed, -15 Actions
Remaining Hits: -2
Narrative:  Klumenos drops the second closest of the lesser undead.

The giant vulture is agitated, and has started flapping its wings.  It’s eying U1, the closest (and toughest-looking) undead.

— —
Inside the House
Inside the house, Yarlaganda sees a wooden table five feet long and three feet wide.  There’s also Murdus’s cart, roughly 5’ by 4’, 1’ deep with wheels adding around 1’ to its depth (the axle sits at the base of the wagon, so they’re about 2 feet across).

The door is just barely big enough to get the cart inside.



It’s time for initiatives gentlemen.

wishes he'd thought of blocking the door earlier. For now, he will strike at U1.

Yes, just barely.  He’ll have +50 DB from cover.

OOC: DW, Just X and GB, if you’re attacking this round let me know.  Sorry for the slow pace this week, I’ve been swamped with work the past week and a half, but I think I’m finally out of the woods now.

Murdus

He'll *attack* using the Sling, with full OB and the maximum activity to shoot... at the easiest target he can see... as often as possible, in the deliberate phase. Although, with his "stunningly" effective OB of +7, unlikely to hit anything... In fact, I'm fairly convinced that the fumble range is actually greater... ;)

Take your time, Enheduanna!

The Amorite will switch to axe and smite the undead at the top of the stair, so only one comes per round.

I know the feeling Enheduanna, but I'm not sure I see the light yet and probably won't until the 10th of March.

Klumenos

Will fire his bow, if the reloading penalty is less than -20.  If not he will wait until next turn.

Just X:  Reloading a short bow takes 50% activity, but firing a short bow only takes 60% activity, so the penalty is only -10 (which would be canceled out by the deliberate phase bonus of +10).

Initiatives:
27 Yarlaganda
20 Lahwi-Addu (Will wait for U2 to get to top of stairs)
16 Klumenos
15 Vulture
12 Undead
12 Indattu
11 Astrologer
8 Murdus

Snap Phase:
The undead close in, and quicken their pace (From Walk 40 to Fast Walk 60).  Movement numbers
They can move 12 feet during the Snap Phase.
Ideal movement for undead to their targets:
U2: 35 feet (58%)
U4: 55 feet (91%)
U5: 55 feet (91%)
U6: 45 feet (75%)
U7: 25 feet (41%)
U8: 60 feet (100%)
U9: 60 feet (100%)
U10: 60 feet (100%)
U11: 60 feet (100%)
U12: 60 feet (100%)

The vulture moves to protect Yarlaganda:
The vulture’s Fly is 130, so he can easily move to intercept U7 using 11% of his action.

End of Round 2 Snap Phase:


Deliberate Phase:
Yarlaganda attacks U1.
Roll 60 + 88 Short Sword OB + 15 Magic Sword +10 Deliberate -30 Parry -30 DB = 113
Result: 18 Hits, “C” Slash critical.
Crit Roll: 33
Result: +2 Hits, Stun 1 round.
U1’s Remaining Hits: 42
Narrative:  Yarlaganda’s sword cuts a cruel slash across the undead’s midsection.  She staggers.

Klumenos clears a path for the assassin.
Roll 22 + 107 Short Bow OB +10 Deliberate -10 Reload Penalty -30 DB = 99
Result:  9 hits, “A” critical.
Crit roll:  6
Result +1 Hit.
U11’s Remaining Hits: 15
Narrative:  The foreigner scores a solid hit on U11.

The vulture attacks U7 with his talon:
Roll 94 + 80 Talon + 10 Deliberate -30 DB -11 Movement = 143
Result:  23 Hits, “E” Krush Crit.
Crit Roll:  25
Result +6 Hits, -10 to activity
Narrative:  The giant vulture swoops down on U7, and all you hear is the crackling of bones.  U7 is a bloody pile.

The undead finish their movement, but only U1 could act this round.  Unfortunately for her, she’s stunned.

Lahwi-Addu smites U2, who climbed the the stairs:
Roll 58 + 62 + 10 Deliberate -30 DB = 100
Result: 14 hits, “A” critical
Crit Roll: 1
Result:  Whiff!
U2 Remaining Hits: 11
Narrative:  The paladin blocks the stairs, and slams his axe into the undead.  The blade turns a bit before it connects, and he only does concussion damage to the creature.

Indattu continues his stalking:
Roll 73 + 120 = 193
Result:  (Rolled Extremely Hard MM) -120 to undead’s alertness, another 44 feet down.
Do the undead notice him?  U2 (UM 100!) does, but he’s got other problems.  ( U12 only scored a 33, even with his High OE roll)

Astrologer from his high perch, Nur-ili aims a shock bolt at U6
Roll 40 + 27 Directed Spell OB + 10 Deliberate -30 DB = 47
Result: Miss!
For all his good eyesight, the astrologer can’t hit the broadside of a barn.

Murdus
Maybe the merchant can show the astrologer how it’s done?  He takes his time loading, for a sling shot next round!

End of Round 2

Klumenos

From the Moinoan's vantage point it appears the assassin has cleared the undead.  He now turns his bow fire toward the mass of undead gathering near the building they have made their stand in.  He will wait for the deliberate phase to select a target.

The merchant does about as well as the astrologer in ranged combat.

Meanwhile, the astrologer casts Astrologer Base — Starsense — 3. Stareyes as an automatic spell.  This pairs with his Starhearing (still in effect).  He casts his gaze and his ears towards Indattu, to see what’s going on there.  He sees the assassin pause at the door to the house, and hears people talking inside.  Then an undead steps outside.

Also, another undead appears at from the small island.

Opens his eyes and sees he's missed. Then dismayed at his poor efforts, and wonders if perhaps he could use his spear to prod the undead coming up the stairs from above instead...

Result:  Success, +26 to Crit.
Attack Roll 39 +95 Skill +15 Magic Dagger -50 DB = 99
