OOC: None of the Ilwrath can see outside the room. i realised this rule isn't terribly clear, so have a pciture. I'll update vision rules at some stage. essentially if you are standing in a doorway you can see everything inside, outside of a room. If not, you can only see in a direct line or not at all.

Example:



I've also updated the Ilwrath Priest for you, and I'll try to keep in mind that Sukuzu has already posted his move for the next turn (although it is now on another page). If I seem to be waiting for him, remind me.

As for your discussions. I don't want to weigh in too much, but keep a few things in mind. Vogar didn't even leave his post when he heard gunfire, so his orders are probably pretty strict. His been seen by one of his fellow apprentices, which makes the rest aware of him as well. Even if he closes the door, someone is probably going to come ask him why he isn't guarding quietly, probably with the intent of metering out punishment.

Notice that the description of the room is quite brief? That's because your seeing it through Ilwrath eyes. He knows where those doors go and what they look like, so he hardly notices details that might be of use to you. But on the other hand, Vogar knows what the priest is carrying and what he is capable of, so you won't have to test out his weapon by walking in front of it.

Also, they aren't Spathi guys. Although I can see the resemblance these are just innocent civilians. Regarding Slygar I'm trying to expand the namespace a little with some new but similar name, so that we don't run out. Or I misspelled it. But I doubt that, I hardly ever make mistakes Wink

Well, if one of the other Ilwrath comes to ask Vogar why he isn't doing his job properly, I expect it'll take him one turn to do so, so this will only help us (bringing the enemy closer). I think.

Slight revision to old plan: Vogar moves one square into the room before shutting the door, the bottom Ilwrath moving left to hit him or the top-left one moving down to deal with him won't affect the plan much and if he survives we can still tell him to budge over next turn.

What if Vogar just moves up? That would look like leaving his post, and might draw one or two of the other Ilwrath out. We might even start firing at Vogar when he's out of the other Ilwrath's sight.

If we do that, when an Ilwrath steps outside (into the square now occupied by Vogar), he's going to notice us and either:
(a)If he doesn't realize that Vogar is under compulsion (believing for example that he's fleeing), he will attack us (we're the bigger threat) and possibly wound Wubula.
(b)If he does realize, he will probably attack Vogar, although he has a low chance (slightly better than 25%) of killing him in one attack.

This isn't a big deal at all, and they'll probably send only one apprentice to apprehend Vogar, and Vogar has a good chance to kill him, and when those inside see him killed, they're going to send "reinforcements" to attack him, thus exposing themselves to our fire. So it sounds like you have a good idea, go for it.

Keep in mind that in accordance with the vision diagram I posted, any Ilwrath standing in the doorway inside the room will also notice you, he has a vision field corresponding to the human in that picture.

Ok, time to get something done. This probably won't be the most efficient, but it should do no harm either. Vogar moves E E N, indicating non-verbally that he has to use the little Ilwrath's room. (It should give us a little bit of time, and with a bit of luck he can do a bit of damage next turn, perhaps to the priest.)

Compelled by the beautiful voice inside his head, Vogar moved further into the room.  As he moved past the cell door he could hear weak whimpers from the potential victims inside, but they mattered little to him. Only the true beauty mattered.The priest and apprentices looked at him, a mixture of confusion and anger in their faces. They swiftly surrounded him, as the sacrificial victims scampered out of reach. Wubula could not understand the words the priest was using, but it was clear that he was was asking Vogar what he thought he was up to. The situation was tense, and the threat of violence hung in the air, but no one moved... Yet.

Outside, Sukuzu continued his sprint.


Map:



OOC: Sukuzu posted his turn quite a while back, now the rest of you can move. The Ilwrath don't have any action points stored, they simply did not use some fo them. They are trying to quizz Vogar on what he is dooing.

OK, last turn of Fleet Feet... W-W-W-W-N-W
Wawa's realisation that once again it would be too late to help did not slow its charged-up pace, and it came to a stop behind Wubula, eyeing up the open door.
