It's no problem. Like any skill, it gets better over time if the person puts in hard work and endeavors for success. I have no worries.

Just wait until Smokey unleashes his fire cone and you have to map it on the grid.  Wink  *looks at sab*

Luckily Smokey's breath is an instantaneous thing and doesn't linger (yet)... Muahahahahahaha! Ok, I'm actually not sure it ever can or will.

As such, if drawing out the location Smokey breathes is in annoying, we could just stick with describing where he's breathing and who would be in the area.

Yes, if often doesn't matter too much. Although the way a spell's area of effect spreads out on a grid can sometimes be a bit different than what one would think. This can be especially true with cones.

As an example of the area of effect on a grid, here is a post where one of my villainous NPCs unleashed Wail of the Banshee on the party:


Mainly I like to include it because one of the advantages to a PbP game instead of an irl game is that we can actually see the spell posted on the grid as Smokey unleashes death-by-breath. Kinda fun to see the flame cone on the grid and imagine you smell roasting soulless.

I think what's going on is that the Soulless are moving in to attack us, but we're being given time to arrange ourselves for battle before the initiative is rolled and we actually start the combat.

Yep. That's about the size of it. The DM's letting us get prepared.

Kinda sad I missed the boat with this game; would've used the chance to learn 3.5. Now that I'm done with college, more time to wiggle my fingers and set things on fire Wink (salute to Mighty King Cobra!)

Yeah, sorry you didn't get in on it. But I've worked a lot of players in when the interest was there. So maybe there's hope.

Did you follow Shadow War when it was running? I could have used more players over there.  Smiley

Promises, promises...  Grin

Becca and I will be gone from tonight through Tuesday so don't expect much of me in the way of posts. But I figure I'm ahead of the game anyway.

I'll be out for the afternoon/evening starting now. I'll be back tonight and should be around most of the weekend, but the dual sirens' songs of my girlfriend and The Hobbit are pulling me away.

If the fight starts and it gets to Smokey's turn, he'll try and position himself to get as many enemies in a 15ft Cone or 30ft Line as he can.
