OSCAR BEGINS THIS ROUND DAZED, MARKED, AND IN AN INCENDIARY ZONE OF FIERY PAIN.ANOTHER DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE GROUCH.
Oscar in a haze mumbles, “Must kill red people. Elmo’s red. Must kill Elmo. No, Elmo’s on my side and fun to yell at. Must kill red people. Hey look I found an old Snoopy snow cone machine; I wonder who I should beat with it? Elmo’s red. No poetic justice, beat the Red Baron.”Tech:Standard: Attack Red Baron with Virtuous Strike. (9)+7=16 hit. Damage (3)+5=8 points of damage so Baron’s at -7 and Oscar gets a +2 to saving throws until the start of his next turn.Red Skull, do your worst.
Oh and w/ fire resistance 5, Oscar ignores the 2 fire damage (and should be refunded 3 hp, ha, ha, ha).
Also, at the end of my turn, I get a slide 2 due to the cyclone, but I'm waiting for Red Skull to respond.
As the pimp once again stumbles out of a cloud of funny smelling smoke."These gangstas been takin' advantage of Pimp Ernell's sugar! That blue hustler needs to learn his place! All your cookies are belong to the streets!"Tech:[Move: Shift away from Ernie, because he's kind of a b****][Minor; Sipping on Gin and Juice][Standard: Charge the Cookie dealer. (12)+11 = Hit. 24 damage puts Cookie at 6. Cookie's dwarvenness avoids a fiery demise]
Spawn was 2 by the way.
OOC: I went to a sesame street themed second birthday party for a friend's child this evening. It was somewhat surreal to have murderous intentions towards the various inflatable balloons.
You should try watching in on a near daily basis... "Guess what Elmo's thinking about. Elmo's thinking about WHOOPASS."
Like all good legends, The Red Baron appears out of nowhere from the clouds. With a fleeting glance he dispatches the "Kind, das mit Enten spielt" (Kid that plays with ducks.) over the side. Auf Wiedersehen!Deftly moving across the deck with the speed of a Fokker Dr. I, sending a barrage of pressure towards Crackie Monster (Chocolate chips don't do that to people.) But alas all those cookies have actually helped anchor his blue "Gesäß" to the deck, so he only falls flat, looking like not much is left of him but crumbs. Tech: Respawn at 4 (L12)Minor: Sustain Arcane Whirlwind and slid Ernie to H13. Ernie fails his save with a roll of 4 on a 1d20. (mmm Peking Duck)Move: L12 to K5Cast Beguiling Strands. Hit! Push Cookie Monster to E2. Cookie crits his save! Falls Prone. Mission Accomplished.
Beguiling Strands also does 5 dmg to Cookie.
Which puts him at 1 HP.
THE TIDES OF BATTLE SHIFT BACK AND FORTH AND THE BATTLE FOR SUPREMACY RAGES ON.ERNIE RESPAWNS AT (1).[TECH]For bookkeeping, Beguiling Strand attack roll was a brutal (17)+5 vs. Will, followed up by a critical (20) saving throw.
Does mark clear at respawn? Divine challenge ends when it's used again or the person with the challenge is not engaged (paladin does not attack on his turn or ends turn adjacent).Also Red Skull still has his mark effect to resolve on Oscar and Oscar gets his slide 2 from the cyclone.

CORRECTION:TWELVE HOURS SINCE PROMPTING FOR AEGIS TRIGGERED MELEE BASIC ATTACK HAS EXPIRED. RED SKULL TELEPORTS TO K17 AND STRIKES NAUGHT BUT TRASHCAN.EVERYTHING THAT WAS WAITING FOR THE RESULT OF THAT ATTACK CAN NOW DO ITS THING.[TECH]MBA: (7)+6 vs. AC 20; miss!
Oscar will use the slide from ending his turn in the cyclone to J17, which should put me adjacent to Red Skull and Crimson Dynamo.
HUZZAH! Apologies for the miscommunications and mistakes.Please, those of you using Roll20 to speed up your turns, take the time to explain where everything is coming from and what it's full name is. Explain it to me like I'm an 8-year-old.I can see James rolling out his turn, so I will wait for his posting before updating the map.
Ernie reappears. Again. "Ya know, I'm a very easy-going muppet. But my buddy ole pal Bert? He's getting real tired of re-stuffing me every round. Over. And over. And over." Ernie gets an oddly far-away look in his eyes as he trails off..."Oh, wait, what? That's right. No place on Sesame Street for a Pimp and a Baron. (well, maybe a Count, but not a Baron) Let's do this."[Tech]Standard: Echoing Dirge, targeting Pimp and Baron Attack: (15)+4 = 19 vs Pimp's Will 12 - HIT! Attack: (6)+4 = 10 + 4 (Heroic Effort) = 14 vs Baron's Will 12 - HIT! Hit: (7)+4 psychic damage, push 2 Pimp pushed to G-2, (18) saves, is prone in F-3, at 14 HP Baron pushed to M-3, (2) does not save!Move: walk to L-13Minor: Healing Word on Oscar Effect: Oscar heals 7+(2) to 18 HPTake it away, Cookie!
Cookie Monster pulls out a Sensu Cookie and nibbles on it as he climbs back to his feet. Wanting the cookie stash by the ballista all to himself, he grabs the injured Pimp and tries to throw him overboard, but simply slams him headfirst into the railing, knocking him out cold.TechOOC: Dunno if it's been mentioned before, but Pimp took 3 radiant damage for ending his turn adjacent to Cookie MonsterMove: Stand upMinor: Dwarven Resilience: gain 7 HP to be at 8 and +2 defenses until start of next turnStandard: Overwhelming Strike+9 vs AC - 14+9 = 23, hit!2d6 (brutal 1) +6 = 4+4+6 = 14, so pimp is dropped to 0!Cookie Monster shifts to E3 and slides pimp to E2
CRIMSON DYNAMO DIES AND RESPAWNS AT LOCATION.!!! RED ALERT HAS LOST THE LEAD !!!
This American football, it is a capitalist ploy to keep the bourgeoisie masses ignorant to the excesses of your government? It appears to be working!Tech:Free - lament that the Texans lostStandard - Elemental Bolt on Ernie and Cookie Monsterdamage - (2)+(2)+(1)+11 = 16Ernie - (1)+6 = 7, that's unfortunate. Humiliation. Cookie Monster - (5)+6 = 11 (+4 from Heroic Effort) =15 HIT.Cookie is at -8 and dying. Move - Crawl to K5.Minor - Wish I'd created a character that had minor actions.
"Minor - Wish I'd created a character that had minor actions."Buddy, it's a blessing and a curse. I think Ernie's got like five of them.
RED SKULL BEGINS HIS TURN AND IS PLACED UNDER THE DIVINE SANCTION OF OSCAR THE GROUCH.
"Du denkst, dass du mit mir kämpfen kannst? Es ist voll lächerlich! Du bist nur ein Tagelöhner und ich bin die Größe! Schmeck meinen Schwert, grüne Mann!"*Translations provided Herr Doktor Arnim Zola: "You think that you can fight with me? It is completely absurd!! You are but a peon and I am greatness! Taste my sword, green man!"And with a flash of green fire, Red Skull's blade comes down upon the head of Oskar the Grouchy One only to miss. Confused by the apparent failure of the Babylonian blade's enchantment, Skull strains and swings the blade again into the face of the trash-dweller only to miss again. "Fluch meinen Schwert! Und fluch dich auch!"*Translations provided by Herr Doktor Arnim Zola: "Curse my blade! And curse you too!"[TECH]*Standard: Greenflame Blade vs Oscar, +7 vs AC, MISS (11 vs AC 20)*Action Point: Greenflame Blade vs Oscar, +7 vs AC, MISS (13 vs AC 20)*Move: Shift to L16*Minor: Curse my lack of Minor actions*Free: Curse my blade and Oscar and my luck*Free (Pity): Cry
