With Suzuku? You mean with Bach?

No, I was going with what'd be smarter from your point of view if you agree on in which order you move. But seeing as this is getting a bit disorganised, I'm just going to start moving you according to in which order you post, so Bach moves first.

meep: As long as Wubulu can see a victim it works. No need for straight lines or any of that.

Calculating your moves now, weigh in when you're ready Dabir.

Not to nag, but...
OOC: So, just to clarify, would I be able to hit the Ilwrath with Mayhem or would I have to move to do that too?

Why, pray tell, did you not attack him with your melee weapon twice instead of attacking him first with your handgun and then with your paws?

Wait wait wait. So when I use my melee or ranged attack I must use all of it, no combining allowed? Like in this situation - I have 2 AP left and wanted to use one of my two ranged attacks with handgun and to shove the rest for melee, hopefully massacring the dreaded space spider. Hm?

What advantage would there be for Sukuzu to do a ranged attack instead of another melee attack?

I just wanted to try them out both, to see how different attacks will resolve and to what effect.

Why would it be "smarter"? If Bach moves first, then we avoid friendly fire.

Bach moved swiftly, letting all that packed fury unfurl. He swiftly stepped infront of Sukuzu, firing his rifle before anyone else even had a chance to react. At thsi range, the Ilwrath never had a chance. Bullets piereced it's digusting carapace, and it sank down with a hissing sound.

Sukuzu, preparing himself for a charge and battle could not restrain himself. He rushed forward yelling, stopping only at the feet of his now dead enemy. He had stepped into the courtyard, and a bleak place it was. Grey blocks of stone, piled upon each other and nothing else. A large door to the north, and a slight curvature showing that the courtyard continued in other direction to the west and east. This place was empty, and dead. Except for to his left, where another vile Ilwrath sprang into action, stunned at what it saw.


OOC: Bach rolls 2 hits and a miss. The Ilwrath defends with two fails. The Ilwrath dies.

Sukuzu moves forward into the courtyard and stops. He discovers a second sentry! Sukuzu has two AP, Wubulu and Dabir haven'ty moved yet.

Sorry, I missed that. No, you can use Mayhem to hit anything you see, just like the Syreen confuse. unless a power specifies that you need a straight line, then field of vision is good enough. Also, if you use Psychic Radar you can use Mayhem on any of those targets, even though you don't see them.

I misread your move  Embarrassed You are right of course.

No, you're allowed to combine just fine. It's just that two melee attacks would have done 2*4=8 dice and your attack did 1*4+1*2=6 damage. But you never got to execute it so it's null and void anyhow.

EDIT: Also that's slimy black oily Ilwrath blood and ichor, I didn't think to ask Dabir for a sprite for that.... Move to that square to loot the body.

I can see that this thread is going to ruin my post count. Tongue

How does that door to the east affect movement and fire? Does ranged fire go through it? Would it take movement points if you want to pass it?

Btw, how are you maintaining that map? Is that a spreadsheet, or are you actually editing a picture directly?

Darn, that's not a door, it's a msitake. The only door is to the north. It takes one AP to open. I'll reupload the pic.

Spreadsheet with pictures, copy-pasted to paint and uploaded. Left a cell marked without noticing it.

OOC: OK, I'll run N-N, and hit the Ilwrath with Mayhem.

IC: Wawa seized the opportunity after the gunfire had stopped to dash forwards. Shocked at seeing another of the spider monsters, its reflexes kicked in, throwing a blast of disorienting psy-waves at the hideous creature.

Wawas attack tears at the Ilwraths mind, and leaves it dazzled and confused. Friends turn to enemies, and enemies to friends. It blinks in a confused fashion.

OOC: -1HP for the Ilwrath, leaving it with 1HP.  Next turn it will be looking for other Ilwrath to attck and can't defend. In this turn, Shofixti and Syreen still have movement left. First post moves first.

There goes a perfectly good power for neutralizing groups of enemies... The Syreen's Playback (or perhaps just Confusion, though the spider could've just fled if he was merely Confused, thus allowing the effect to wear off) would've been a better choice, or just plain shooting.

EDIT: Although, there might be more Ilwrath around the corner, so maybe it wasn't that bad of a move.

Wubula waits for Sukuzu to hopefully make room for her. She's not the thinnest, you know.

OOC: That was pretty much the only way I could do any damage at all - I couldn't run AND shoot, or use any of the other powers that do damage.

Well you don't have to shoot it, you could've just picked the Paingiver and let Wubula use Playback (after Suzuku let her occupy his place, of course). Anyway, we still have two grenades, so it's probably not going to be a problem.

Playback needs line of sight, so that wouldn't have worked. Confusion would, though.
Anyhow, since Wubula can't do a useful attack this turn anyhow, she just moves N N N N.
