Doesn't it take 3 turns to load and shoot a blowpipe? There are skills and advantages to speed that up, but heroic archer seems unlikely on these things. Not saying the action is wrong, just verifying that the speed of attack was intentional.

Great, hope he comes back soon.

Hello man, I just wonder if you took Bainís strategy into account.

I called a camouflage roll (16) before starting battle.

Did the creatures roll against perception to notice Bain under camouflage?
They have a -4 to spot him, since they are shooting upwards.

On the other hand:

Camouflage itself grants a -1 to hit when successful.
The creatures also have the -4 to hit from shooting upwards.
Being in partial cover cashes another -2 to hit, since the torso is half exposed.

Thanks!

Their blowpipes were pre-loaded. They now have to reload.

Yeah, I took that into account. Their attack rolls were still good enough.
What is your torso DR? Because it is quite possible your armour stopped the darts.

Fine, I understand Bain got an 8 for Camouflage, right?

Since all of them saw Bain, I assume you rolled just once (for all), so letís call luck and have them fail (the enemy re-rolls). His margin of success is 8 so the upper hand in the quick-contest should be Bainís.

BTW, Bain's DR is 1.

Their numbers will be less in the next round, and the enemy succeeding with something larger than 8 after a -4 to perception, is very unlikely.

Bain will wash the shame of that "defense" with the blood of his targets!

No, Bain succeeded in his Camouflage, the penalty to the enemy attack rolls just wasn't enough to make them miss.

The DR 1 means Bain takes no injury from two of the hits - but one of them did 2 small piercing injury (is that a 1/2 wounding modifier?) plus 1 toxic follow-up. Mark off the injury from your HP. Remember to factor in the shock from the injury.

Anyway, what is Bain doing now?

Bain will do an All-Out-Attack (double) to bring down two targets.

Also, I will call my luck to nullify the attack roll that succeeded against Bain (the one that damaged him).
Thanks!

What is your skill (with modifiers) to be rolled?
What weapon are you using? Because you used a bow last time, and that needs to be reloaded.

Alright, your Luck will recharge tomorrow.
The bad guy rolled 12 and 10. That is a miss! No injury, guess that dart deflected off your armour instead...

Thanks, Bain is a Heroic Archer with Weapon Master (Bow). He can ready the bow and shoot at -1 to skill every turn (and also combine this with an AOA). Heroic archer also gives him his acc (+2) bonus.

So, it goes like this:

Bain readies the bow at SL (15-1) for quick-shooting,
Bain fast-draws the arrow at SL (14),
And Bain attacks at SL (15-1-1+2) for range, quick-shooting and acc bonus.

Ok.
First attack; rolled 13 then 14 fast-draw, and the attack roll is 15. The bad guys fails to notice him in time, so no active defense. Roll damage, Bain.
Second attack; rolled 10, then 11 fast-draw, and the attack roll is 12. That is also a hit, roll for damage!
