For the matter of the surprise attack, Bainís stealth is SL 14.

Also, I would like Bain to hold the shot to improve his chance of success (allowing the enemy advance 3 yards reduces his range penalty to -2, which should happen as he aims).

What phase of the FP recovery is Telrith in? He'll be either 2 FP and 2 ER or 1 FP and 1 ER down.

Telrith will lift up his shield, observe his foes, and give the elementals instructions. He will probably be on the wrong side of the wall, as he was most worried about an attack from the door they're working on.

How far away are the enemies when they are spotted?

So we picked the big stone entrance instead of the little earth ones? sigh, I should have been more proactive about getting that information.


EDIT: basic speed is 5. Elemental basic speed is 4.5. Current elementals are mudman and stonemaul.

They are about 20 yards away from us, and we are at an elevation of about 25 yards (source).

Bain is letting them get closer, to attack them with reduced range penalties.

Vic is now aware of the enemies, and will wait until they are closer in range to attack with his sword (sl 16), for defense he will do dodge (9). He can also try to parry any arrows that might seem to be able to hit any of the companions within sword range. (parry missiles 12).

His move speed is 5 and reaction speed 5.25

I believe it is Vic's turn next, followed by Telrith and Gathika.

None of the arrows land true.

That's three shots, not four. Also, what about the elementals? do our foes not perceive them as threats?


What do our foes look like?

Ajardoor, can you help me with these questions?
  1. The enemies are regular archers (i.e. not heroic archers), so they wonít be attacking in 3 turns, right?
  2. They are furious, so they are Chautcho seeking revenge?
  3. Are the other enemies wearing armour?
  4. What is their formation? Depending on their formation, a single shot might hit more than one guy on its trajectory. For example, with overpenetration, if the damage dealt surpasses the sum of effective DR and HP (flesh) then the arrow goes through!
Combat maneuvers for Bain's next turn:

The arrow currently held by Bain is an armour piercing war arrow, but if the other guys are not wearing armour (not the leader!) then he will switch to normal arrows (on his next shot, not this one).

Bain will launch another AOA double, unless your information changes things.

Bain shot their leader (or the most badass looking guy). Now he will strike targets in their group that are 3 yards closer:

This will reduce the effective distance between Bain and the targets from 8 yards to 5 yards, while the enemy shall stand at 42 yards instead of 45 yards. This changes Bainís penalty from -4 to -2, but the enemies penalty stays the same (-8).

So, the shooting goes like this:

First arrow:

Shooting: SL 15, (15-2+2: range and acc bonus).

Second arrow:

Readying: SL 14 (second shot),
Drawing: SL 14,
Shooting: SL 14, (15-2-1+2: range, quickshooting and acc bonus).

Defensive maneuvers for Bain's next turn:

Bain is camouflaged, so range penalties (-8) also deal a penalty to detect him.
He is crouching and shooting from cover (half exposed), thereís a penalty of -2 to hit him.
He is using acrobatic dodge with extra effort, for things that seem likely to hit.
