You tried using Imgur? There is no upload limit. Although the resolution size might not be as good.

Did the demons just randomly decide to attack Faenor? The whole point of the Stealthy attack was to not draw attention to himself.

stealthy attacks does not make you stealthy, they can see you knocking an arrow and releasing it, and they can see their friends getting poked with holes.

stealthy attack imbuement skill makes it harder for them to see the attack (in thise case the arrow) but it does not make it invisible. they get -2 to per to see the attack if you choose to not take a penalty to the imbuement roll.

Um, not true? He took enough of a penalty to get a -10 (the max penalty allowed), so the arrows should have been "invisible" the entire duration of the attack. That is what the description of Stealthy Attack says anyways: "You can silence your weapon or make it invisible, as if it had Low or No Signature."

Even had the demons noticed their friends suddenly dying, it wasn't due to getting poked full of holes. They died due to fatigue damage, so it would be hard to determine cause. More than that, the demons themselves should have had to roll at a -10 to Per to see if they even noticed the attack coming at them before they got to dodge.

As long as they saw me (I'm assuming they beat my Stealth roll since they dodged the first attack), they should be able to dodge. It still looks like I'm drawing an arrow, nocking it, pulling it back, and letting go, but it doesn't look like a dozen glowing blue arrows are flying through the air from my position. In fact, unless they were looking directly at me, the bystanders should not know that my attacks were the ones that hit their comrades. Otherwise, what's the point of Stealthy Attack? It seems worthless if it gives me no benefit.

If the one(s) that I hit come(s) after me, I get that. I don't get why half of them pulled off to go for the guy who probably is the least conspicuous and looks the least dangerous. It's not unreasonable, necessarily, but perhaps some more clarity as to how they are reacting would be beneficial. We're they ignoring me up until now? Did they see their friends fall and look towards me in suspicion? Did they seem like they intended to take me out next after they threw all their spears? I don't know that I would necessarily know any of that, but it just seemed like they took no notice of me before, so I assumed my strategy was working (the strategy being to not draw attention to myself).

Just an FYI to the GM that I need damage rolled for the goo that hit Jorrik's shield, because of Energizing Defense. Also, hi everyone! Still in FL until tomorrow morning, so this is my post for the night, but I'll be back soon.
