Turn undead is a once per encounter power.  Both priests have used it in this fight; it's not avialable any longer. 

Cedric's staff is still glowing. 

I mean, I'm all for trying to throw Kith into a tree.  It sounds entertaining (if not super good for her HP).

Olan, does this game continue in with us playing zombies? Like Warm Bodies?

Sorry, nope.  If you're raised as zombies, you have no minds, so there is no RP.  Ghouls have intelligence and cunning, but the change ruins their minds; little but madness and hate and hunger remain. 

An "undead servants of D'hurgen" has some shine to it, though... I can dig it. 

Just going to point this out, in case you hadn't considered it - Therassor's teachings are all about honor and chivalry and doing battle for justice and good and the "right" things.  While his teachings do not forbid retreat in and of itself - it is obviously wise to live to fight another day in many cases - abandoning a companion to an undead buffet will probably be viewed as a big, ugly sin in that religion.

 

edit - no doubt, great post there, breebles.

I was teasing about the leaving fellows behind. That's such an alien concept to me as a person, I'm not a good enough role-player to have a character do it.  I've posted.

@Eol and Olan haha thanks! Glad you liked it!

Yeeess throw Purse Kith in a tree, she LOVES it there!

As far as her actions for the next bout of rounds, if she does not come back around, throw her in a tree and flee. Pinata Kith is a happy Kith.

If she thaws out and we're not fleeing: she'll try to suck it up and join in the fight, helping the closest person who needs it. If things look real real dire she'll go die with her bestie.

If we are fleeing: she'll attempt to help anyone along that needs it, possibly even tossing a dagger at a baddie in order for one of her friends to break free . . but only one. Otherwise it's every bitch for themselves!

EDIT: "little but madness and hate and hunger remain" if we become ghouls? Omg am . . . am IIII a ghoul?

I figured you were kidding, Brom.  Just wanted to toss that out there.  I think that "Gib the fallen priest, saddled with guilt, seeking redemption for his sins" would be an incredibly compelling read, but you might not speak to me after he loses divine favor, so I wanted to be sure that you understood the implications of that.

lol @ every bitch for themselves.

Okay, so, in my opinion, I'm inclined to say that we stop our "tactical retreat" and do all the damage we can. Running hasn't done much except get us throttled, so far. Ch'dau can stop, deposit Kith in (or, at least, behind) a tree and regroup with Aranwen and Gib, allowing Cedric and Midge to fall back behind the skirmish line. Midge can utilize his magic at range, Cedric can keep us ahead of the beatings with some healing spells, etc... Gib likely has some unused healing he could invoke, as well, right?

I doubt we all live through this encounter, for sure, but, at the moment (and, yes, given the kazari mindset,) I think Ch'dau would just as soon die fighting as opposed to running.

Looks like the party leader has a call to make.  Either call might save the group.  Or might doom it (or part of it).

Just to make sure that everyone understands the rules - if you turn and run from melee, every enemy in range gets a free shot at your back, ignoring your shield bonus and most bonuses related to dexterity.  You're talking about roughly ten extra attacks at the group. 

Zombies do suck, but it's a serious risk - especially to those with fewer HP. 

Of course, if you stand and fight, you are committed.  Disengaging probably won't be an option again. 

You guys beat similar odds in the Inn already... but the dice were kind.  I really didn't see y'all getting into this exact situation, so this encounter has become more difficult than I imagined it would be.

well...

I need to know if everyone will go along with Aranwen's plan to make a stand.  I don't see Gib fleeing, despite him thinking it is the better solution, but I need to know that for sure.  Will Ch'dau and the casters follow the order?

For what it may be worth, the evil GM thinks that, statistically, this is your best shot.  Making a stand means that if someone does go down, they will at least have the rest of the party still fighting so as to keep them from being devoured immediately.    The fighters may be able to screen the zombies off of the casters, too. 

Maybe.

I'm not going to lie - this could well be the end of the line for one or more of you (TPK is a real possibility in all seriousness).  But of the options you have left, I think that this is the best choice that you have.

On the bright side, we saved before Kith left the campsite, so if we all die we restart right there.
