Anoras has Hidden Lore (Sorcery). I would guess that she would know if a sorcerer (or possibly a non-sorcerer) could tell who's a sorcerer or not regardless of how they're dressed. Can one tell?

This would be in the sense of "You see a person not dressed as a sorcerer. But as you're a sorcerer and/or have Hidden Lore (Sorcery), you can tell by their aura/whatever they are a sorcerer."

My suspicion is it wouldn't require a roll to know if a sorcerer/one with Hidden Lore (Sorcery) can recognize a sorcerer or not. But if it does, ericthered has my permission to roll for me.

Can one tell?....

Not through any arcane method.

However, scorcerors's minds have been altered by their use of magic, and they rarely conceal their identities as a scorceror unless they have a specific objective (they also generally obscure their previous identity before they become scorcerors).

If they are concealing, hidden lore would let you spot them through charms they've kept around anyway, or through mannerisms that give them away. You're not close to notice any of those right now.

Thad absorbs the spear thrust, and marches forward to confront the skeleton who attacked him.

OoC: Move action to get adjacent to attacking skeleton. Successful HT check to stay conscious.

Cassandra has three seconds of aim (is that the maximum, or can she get one more?)


Thad moves up to the skeletons.



Archer #3 aims for another second (total 2) at cassandra
Archer # 2 aims at cassandra
Archer #1 knocks their bow


Fireball looks at Thad, deciding if he wants to fireball his own troops. He does not, and Aims at cassandra


The second sorcerer is 3 yards away from thad. He makes another gesture.
Scorceror: Will ??? - 3 (yards) vs 12
Thad: Will 9 + 5 (amulet) vs 15

That resists the spell!



One skeleton with a spear, and one with a shield, both attack Thad with their main weapons:
Spear: skill?? vs 15 ... miss!
Sword: skill?? vs 5 .... hit! (not a critical)
Hit location... right arm!
5 points of cut damage, vs. 2 points of DR. it will do 4 damage if it connects.


The skeleton with the pole arm flips the weapon to attack with the spiked end ... and that's its turn. (I rolled attack, but it can't, stupid asterisks)



The warriors behind the skeletons are evaluating Thad.

Thad effortlessly blocks the sword strike with his shield. Pushing past the pain of his wounds, he takes two mighty swings at the skeleton in melee range, hammering into its defenses with his powerful muscles.

OoC: Successful block. Successful consciousness check to act. Two successful Rapid Strikes with his axe, for 11 and 20 cutting damage. Take that!

Thad's first blow is not blocked by the pole arm (rolled a 13), and the blow crunches through armor and into bone:

11 damage vs 3 DR (light scale) + 2 DR (skeleton bone) = 6 * 1.5 = 9 injury
The knockdown roll of 13 is unsuccessful, and the skeleton falls prone

The skeleton fails to dodge the second, stronger blow (dodge must be less than 10)
20 damage vs 3 DR (light scale) + 2 DR (skeleton bone) = 15 *1.5 = 22 injury
knockdown roll of 11 is successful!
The skeleton has taken a total of 31 damage. It is still moving, but it is prone, and its core has been shattered.

Cassandra looses an arrow at fireball

Skill 16 - 10 (range) + 2 (time) + 3 (Acc) = 11

Fireball dodges and looses his aim:

Dodge??? +2 (feverish dodge) vs 10 = success!

Fireball aims at cassandra again
The winged mask scorceror makes some sort of gesture, but Thad doesn't feel anything this time.

Archer #3 aims for the third second at cassandra
Archer # 2 aims for a second second cassandra
Archer #1 aims at cassandra

The spear and sword skeletons each attack thad!
The sword skeleton rolls a 14 ... which is not enough!
The spear skeleton rolls a 9, which is a hit. 1d6+1 rolls max damage = 7 if not blocked, for the torso (DR 4)

I'm setting up a hex grid, and a soldier or two still needs to attack, but I need to figure out which.

As a note, I'm pretty sure Anoras's charm is the only reason Thad is standing right now. And his HT.

Cassandra realizes now she is about to be under a hail of arrows

She prepares to dodge and backs up two

All Out Defense Dodge

Battle Map

A Venasir Warrior steps forward and swings a sword at Thad's chest, as hard as he can.

Skill??? vs 11 is a hit

8 cut vs 4 DR
