She does a neat side flip

She'll try to do an acrobatic roll out of the way (Acrobatics 12, 13 if make 9 if fail dodge) on the next shot

She will aim at one of the archers, since as she knows quite well you can't use a bow and a shield at the same time!

Having aimed for 3 rounds she doesn't want to lose her shot do she will grit her teeth and take the hit, hoping her armor saves her or she can just tough it out (will 9)

Anoras will continue moving toward the enemy and trying to locate the prisoners. (Anoras isn't as fast of a mover as Thad and Cassandra.)

Thad throws himself to the ground as the fireball explodes by his feet, clearing the worst of the blast. Disoriented by the fall, he barely misses seeing the arrow in time to roll out of the way. Then he quickly climbs to his feet to resume the hunt.

OoC: Dodge and drop to throw myself away from the blast radius.I believe that cuts the damage to 5/3, which rounds to 1. Missed the Dodge by 1 on the arrow due to lying down penalty.

The first arrow misses because of the flip.

The second arrow strikes her in the chest, but bounces off her DR 4 mail (exactly), and she keeps her aim!

Skill 16 - 10 (range) + 2 (time) + 3 (Acc) = 11.... its a hit!
The archer dodges ... 5!... but looses his aim. This was randomly determined (you didn't specify) to be the slow archer... who was about to shoot, and must restart his aim!

This is an area attack, not an explosive blast. Distance from the center won't help you. Would you like to revise your action? Checking your armor, the arrow doesn't do enough damage to penetrate. The fire would end up doing 3 damage I think, as you have 4 torso DR and an exposed face and hands.

Yeah, combat takes a while longer to play out than sneaking around it. At least we aren't doing second by second at the moment. More relevant than top speed is the longer route, more obstructed route, and moving slowly enough to be stealthy.

in 3 more seconds, the slow archer fires at Thad
in 4 more seconds, each fast archer will fire, (they made their quick draw rolls) and the scorceror will as well.
in 5 more seconds, Cassandra will fire (she made her quick draw)
If Thad is not prone, he will be at 20 yards from the enemy at 5 seconds.

I need a target from Cassandra, and a decision to keep or revise his defensive strategy from Thad.

OoC: Yes, if I can't dive out of the area of an explosion, I'll just keep running. So I should still be on my feet with only 3 damage total I think.

Thad takes three damage... out of his base of 17. He keeps running.

The Slow archer fires at Thad when he is 30 yards away, but the arrow bounces off of his chain shirt.
Skill ?? - 6 (range) + 2 (time) + 3 (Acc) = skill -1 vs 8 .... its a hit!
3 damage... less than DR.

Sorcerer fires at Thad's hex when he is 25 yards away:

Skill ??? - 6 (range) +2 (time) + 1(Acc) + 4 (Hex) = skill +1 vs 5
4 damage against Effective DR 2... 2 more damage for a total of 5.

Archer fires at Thad when he is 25 yards away, aiming for his right leg.
Skill ?? - 6 (range) -2 (leg) + 2 (time) + 3 (Acc) = skill -3 vs 14 .... its a miss!

Archer fires at Cassandra when Thad is 25 yards away, aiming for a random location
Skill ??? - 10 (range) +2 (time) + 3(Acc) = skill -5 vs 9. An exact hit! This archer (Archer #2) has bow skill 14.

The arrow only does 2 damage. Cassandra has two seconds of aim at that point. Its going for the left leg... luckily that can take the hit as well.

Cassandra fires at the slow archer when Thad is moving to 20 yards.

Skill 16 - 10 (range) + 2 (time) + 3 (Acc) -2 (Cover) = 9 vs 14 is a miss

One archer is slow drawing his arrow, so now they are all on different times to shoot.

What is Cassandra's action?

Thad moves to 15 yards.
Archer #3 (slow archer) has two seconds of aim at Thad
Archer #2 has an arrow knocked
Archer #1 has one second of aim at Thad
Fireball has one second of aim at Thad and a fireball in his hand.

six skeletons move into view among the trees, with various weapons
  • 1 sword and shield
  • 2 spear and shield
  • 2 club and shield
  • 1 with a glaive
you can see both sorcerers: the one with the fireball has a white mask with red stripes. The other one has a black and blue design with wings.

Alright, she will load her bow

After that she will use AOD Dodge until one of two things

1 - an archer or sorceror emerges from cover
2 - a human foe is trying to outflank or get behind Thad and may leave his back or non shield side exposed
