The Dice Master says...

Daishain, are you accepting new Players for your game? I am browsing at the moment and can drop hints to your game if you wish.

Technically yes.

However, I've got nine active players at present, have set the cap at ten, and none of mine look to be retiring any time soon. Coordinating this many makes me a little disinclined to raise that cap at present.

So, if someone is interested, feel free to send them my way. But if multiple come, someone is getting disappointed.

If you are dropping hints, we could use a few more people inclined to take on the GM role.

I don't know how you handle this big of a group Daishain. This is a huge combat to coordinate. Once again, thank you for the great job you are doing with this campaign.

Fay has been rocking with some great rolls. He might have bitten off more than he chew. I think with the worn down status of our group that we wouldn't have a chance versus this horned devil without Silas. I hope Fay will hear the cry to retreat. Lia will be yelling it right in his ear very soon.

This situation reminds me of the joke about being chased by a bear. Applying the joke to the horned devil… We don't have to outrun the horned devil. We just have to outrun one person in the group. Sorry Cratol. You might have to take one for the team *wink*.

Daishain,

I hope the 18 my luck roll produced was enough. In case it wasn't, and woe be upon us if that's the case, don't forget he rolled bless to make it a 19. If that doesn't do it Fay may drop his swords and start praying to the thing as a supplicant. I assume this thing will be every bit as hard as a… say Blue Deagon to take down. There we got lucky, here we may not. I'm all for retreating.

Forgot my second Stealth roll for my advantage so I'm rolling it here. (Plus some additional words to be able to post this.).

Rather off topic, but...
Edit: Out of curiosity, what are the requirements to GM here?

Actually Abn, at least according to the game's CR system, Lennithon was about 50% tougher of a challenge than a standard Horned Devil. (CR 16 vs 11)

The way CR works, a single CR 16 creature is in theory supposed to be an even match for four level 16 PCs

However, as demonstrated by the fight with Lennithon, using CR as a guideline is problematic. Its not well balanced, especially when multiple individuals on either side are involved, and it does a poor job of representing other factors in a fight (Such as the cover and ballistae the group had to work with). But still.

From what Daishain says about the CR of the devil, I think we would have a pretty good chance of defeating… IF it weren't for the fact we'd also have at least 8 more duergar to contend with. From what I have been seeing and reading, in 5th edition numbers are a huge element. If one side has more than the other, that can be a big edge. That is a reason many of the bigger monsters have multiple attacks, legendary actions/resistances, etc.

So I think if we Silas can keep the force wall up, and the devil keeps resisting the banishment, we can take it. As long as it resists, we should work on it. But Poljen will stick with mopping up dark dwarves for the moment. I will post later this afternoon.

Edit: Oh, and those gorgons… yikes…

I think we should run like hell once the north is clear. We beat the dragon but how much damage was done it to by ballista and militia archers which we are now lacking? One other thing was the shields. They ensured that we would take half damage from his breath at the most. Without all of that that fight would have been much different.

Another factor is that we were at full strength when we battled Leninthon. Oswald is out of spell slots, Geoffroy has used up at least half of his as has Lia. Not to mention that the devil is probably immune to fire which are Poppo's and Geoffroy 's big attacks. Lia only has one lighting bolt left. It would come down pretty much to the melee characters without much magical support or healing. Lia will scream at people to retreat. We will see what happens I suppose.

This isn't a boss battle where we can win and take time off. We are in hostile territory. I feel that it would be unwise to commit all of our resources into this battle. We would be terribly weakened against any other foes we might encounter.
