OOC: I guess I don't quite understand how this works. Ravix rolled for an athletics check of 29. Can that be used to the skill challenge?

"Hedoni, take one of the spell turrets. We need to speed this ship up and start firing at the other one." Mal yanks on a rope doing what he can to help Hedoni and prepares to take over once Hedoni moves to a turret.

Standard Action: Crew Ship

Move Action: Athletics check

Athletics check (+18 skill, +1 24hr): 1D20+19 = [14]+19 = 33

Minor Action: Improved Inspiring Word +3 (Close burst 10; One ally gets Healing Surge +4d6+8 HP)

Inspiring Word (Ravix): 34+4D6+8 = 34+[1, 5, 5, 6]+8 = 59

OOC: Crew Ship, Athletics check 33. Inspiring Word on Ravix, heal him for 59 HP. Mal is ready to pilot if Hedoni is going to take a turret.

Mal properly sets the strike ship’s rigging to help control its erratic course upward. The ship accelerates significantly and you can see the admiral's flagship ahead.

The whitewings soar up to the ship and you feel their long tails slam into the hull eight times. An easy target, but well built, the ship takes 44 damage. The craft shudders at each impact, but holds her course and speed.

  •   Details on flying the airship
      The strike ship initially travels at a speed of 10 squares. When brought under control (after complete success in the skill challenge), it travels at a speed of 12 squares. The admiral's flagship has a speed of 8 squares, but it has a significant head start. Because of the turbulence created by the astral gate, neither craft can make a double move in this encounter.

      The lift granted by the astral gate means that it takes only three PCs to control the strike ship—one pilot and two crew. (A ship of this size normally requires a crew of three or more.) For each missing crew member, the ship’s speed is reduced by 2 squares.

      The PC who pilots the strike ship must do so with a standard action and a move action each round. The PCs crewing ship must use a standard action each round to do so. Because those three PCs are actively working the strike ship’s controls, they can make primary skill checks in the skill challenge as minor actions. All other characters make primary skill checks in the challenge as standard actions.

      I, the DM, will keep track of the distance between the two ships from round to round, and of the change in speed of either craft as it takes damage. For every 50 damage either astral craft takes, its speed is reduced by 2 squares. At fly speed 0, a ship floats out of control toward the astral gate. Each warship is equipped with grappling lines that can be fired by the pilot.

      Strike ship information

      HP 500; AC 6; Fortitude 17, Reflex 15; resist 10 all damage; speed 10 (at the beginning of the skill challenge) or 12 (after 5 victories in the challenge). For every 50 damage either astral craft takes, its speed is reduced by 2 squares. The vehicle rules above have been adapted from Adventurer’s Vault.
  •   Run out the guns
      Spell turrets: A character in a spell turret can use the turret to direct any nonweapon ranged or area arcane or divine attack power. A character directing a power through a spell turret uses his or her own attack modifier and deals damage as normal. However, a power directed through a spell turret cannot be used with an implement.

      The magic of a spell turret doubles the range of arcane and divine powers, and allows powers to target inanimate objects even if they normally cannot do so. Characters attacking airborne creatures through a spell turret can make use of any of a power’s effects. Powers that create effects in addition to hit point damage can be used against a ship, but the ship ignores such effects (including ongoing damage).

      Attacks that deal damage throughout an area (typically attacks that target all creatures in a burst) strike more than 1 square when used against a ship, dealing additional damage as follows: burst 1 or 2, 2 damage; burst 3 or 4, 3 damage; burst 5 or larger, 5 damage. Attacks that can target multiple characters function only as a single attack when directed through a spell turret

      Force ballistas: +15 vs. AC; ranged 40; 3d10 force damage. Each force ballista has 10 bolts and is operated by a single character. Firing is a standard action. Activating the magical bolt loader is a minor action.

      Attacks made with the spell turrets and force ballistas of either ship target only the other craft or creatures in the air. These attacks cannot target a character on a ship.

OOC: After conferring with the DM, the enemies are no longer 15 squares away. It's more like 8. FYI.

With the ship suitably crewed, Salazar moves to a spell turret. However, the turret's lake of implement compatibility means it's best for now for him to hurl spells through his own staff while the enemies are within his normal range. As such, he tosses a bolt of cold at a whitewing.

Move action - Move to S43.

Standard action - Dragonfrost against Astral Whitewing V.

Dragonfrost against Astral Whitewing V. (24H): 1D20+22+1 = [11]+22+1 = 34 1D8+26 = [5]+26 = 31

Hits Fort 34 for 31 cold damage on Astral Whitewing V, and on a hit, decline to push.

"Readying" Sudden Scales, Fog Form, and Belt of Raging Endurance, in that order.

Realizing that he is more accurate with his craghammers and therefore likely to do more damage, Ravenblade moves to the opposite side of the ship and throws. He then steels himself for retaliation.

Move: to O45
Standard: Twin Strike whitewing S, AC, +2 for dazed: 1D20+19+2 = [2]+19+2 = 23 1D10.MIN(3)+10 = [9]+10 = 19 1D20+19+2 = [11]+19+2 = 32 1D10.MIN(3)+10 = [8]+10 = 18
Minor: Stalwart Defense: +2 FORT and resist all 5 until end of the encounter

Sorry for the delay, the last couple months have been very busy and tiring for me.

  •   Details on flying the airship
      The strike ship initially travels at a speed of 10 squares. When brought under control (after complete success in the skill challenge), it travels at a speed of 12 squares. The admiral's flagship has a speed of 8 squares, but it has a significant head start. Because of the turbulence created by the astral gate, neither craft can make a double move in this encounter.

      The lift granted by the astral gate means that it takes only three PCs to control the strike ship—one pilot and two crew. (A ship of this size normally requires a crew of three or more.) For each missing crew member, the ship’s speed is reduced by 2 squares.

      The PC who pilots the strike ship must do so with a standard action and a move action each round. The PCs crewing ship must use a standard action each round to do so. Because those three PCs are actively working the strike ship’s controls, they can make primary skill checks in the skill challenge as minor actions. All other characters make primary skill checks in the challenge as standard actions.

      I, the DM, will keep track of the distance between the two ships from round to round, and of the change in speed of either craft as it takes damage. For every 50 damage either astral craft takes, its speed is reduced by 2 squares. At fly speed 0, a ship floats out of control toward the astral gate. Each warship is equipped with grappling lines that can be fired by the pilot.

      Strike ship information

      HP 500; AC 6; Fortitude 17, Reflex 15; resist 10 all damage; speed 10 (at the beginning of the skill challenge) or 12 (after 5 victories in the challenge). For every 50 damage either astral craft takes, its speed is reduced by 2 squares. The vehicle rules above have been adapted from Adventurer’s Vault.
  •   Run out the guns
      Spell turrets: A character in a spell turret can use the turret to direct any nonweapon ranged or area arcane or divine attack power. A character directing a power through a spell turret uses his or her own attack modifier and deals damage as normal. However, a power directed through a spell turret cannot be used with an implement.

      The magic of a spell turret doubles the range of arcane and divine powers, and allows powers to target inanimate objects even if they normally cannot do so. Characters attacking airborne creatures through a spell turret can make use of any of a power’s effects. Powers that create effects in addition to hit point damage can be used against a ship, but the ship ignores such effects (including ongoing damage).

      Attacks that deal damage throughout an area (typically attacks that target all creatures in a burst) strike more than 1 square when used against a ship, dealing additional damage as follows: burst 1 or 2, 2 damage; burst 3 or 4, 3 damage; burst 5 or larger, 5 damage. Attacks that can target multiple characters function only as a single attack when directed through a spell turret

      Force ballistas: +15 vs. AC; ranged 40; 3d10 force damage. Each force ballista has 10 bolts and is operated by a single character. Firing is a standard action. Activating the magical bolt loader is a minor action.

      Attacks made with the spell turrets and force ballistas of either ship target only the other craft or creatures in the air. These attacks cannot target a character on a ship.

Hedoni also forgoes using the turrets, and targets the same two creatures Murrak is fighting.

Move Action: Teleport to P41.
Standard Action Hammerfall Step, hitting Astral Whitewing S and U.


Hammerfall Step: (1d20+21+1=29, 1d20+21+1=40, 2d6+17=22)

Hammerfall Step hits Fortitude 29 on Astral Whitewing S and Fortitude 40 on Astral Whitewing U for 22 damage.

Hedoni leaves his post at the helm, leaving only Mal and Ravix to crew the ship. His spell slams two of the winged enemies for 22 damage.

Mal sees Hedoni leave the helm and teleports over, turning the wheel hard to port as he yells orders, "Ravenblade, grab that rigging! Murrak draw some of these creatures off! We need to catch that ship!"

Move Action: Dimensional Stride Boots Encounter Item (Teleport 2 sq; If at max HP, teleport 5 sq)

Action Point! Seize the Day (Roll odd on 1st att, gain 14 temp HP; Roll even on 1st att, each ally w/in 5 gains 9 temp HP)

Standard Action: Pilot Ship

Move Action: Pilot Ship

Minor Action: Athletics check

Athletics check (+18 skill): 1D20+18 = [8]+18 = 26

OOC: Mal teleports to the wheel and takes over as pilot. This requires an Action Point. Then Mal uses Athletics for the skill challenge (26). What is the skill challenge for, exactly? Success will give us complete control of the ship or something? Also, is there any way to repair damage?

Mal rushes to take the helm and encourages Ravenblade to help.

OOC: Success in the skill challenge allows your group to gain control of the ship, catch up to Kada’ne’s flagship and then fire the grappling lines to board. You can use skills to repair the ship too. At the rate you're going, the ship's going get broken before you catch up.

Two of the winged attackers circle around Valor and Sir Murrak. One manages to slam the knight for 15 damage. The other whitewings swarm around the airship as their tails continue to thump the hull for 40 damage. One of the masts get torn and the ship slows down further.

      The strike ship initially travels at a speed of 10 squares. When brought under control (after complete success in the skill challenge), it travels at a speed of 12 squares. The admiral's flagship has a speed of 8 squares, but it has a significant head start. Because of the turbulence created by the astral gate, neither craft can make a double move in this encounter.

      The lift granted by the astral gate means that it takes only three PCs to control the strike ship—one pilot and two crew. (A ship of this size normally requires a crew of three or more.) For each missing crew member, the ship’s speed is reduced by 2 squares.

      The PC who pilots the strike ship must do so with a standard action and a move action each round. The PCs crewing ship must use a standard action each round to do so. Because those three PCs are actively working the strike ship’s controls, they can make primary skill checks in the skill challenge as minor actions. All other characters make primary skill checks in the challenge as standard actions.

      I, the DM, will keep track of the distance between the two ships from round to round, and of the change in speed of either craft as it takes damage. For every 50 damage either astral craft takes, its speed is reduced by 2 squares. At fly speed 0, a ship floats out of control toward the astral gate. Each warship is equipped with grappling lines that can be fired by the pilot.

      Strike ship information

      HP 500; AC 6; Fortitude 17, Reflex 15; resist 10 all damage; speed 10 (at the beginning of the skill challenge) or 12 (after 5 victories in the challenge). For every 50 damage either astral craft takes, its speed is reduced by 2 squares. The vehicle rules above have been adapted from Adventurer’s Vault.
  •   Run out the guns
      Spell turrets: A character in a spell turret can use the turret to direct any nonweapon ranged or area arcane or divine attack power. A character directing a power through a spell turret uses his or her own attack modifier and deals damage as normal. However, a power directed through a spell turret cannot be used with an implement.

      The magic of a spell turret doubles the range of arcane and divine powers, and allows powers to target inanimate objects even if they normally cannot do so. Characters attacking airborne creatures through a spell turret can make use of any of a power’s effects. Powers that create effects in addition to hit point damage can be used against a ship, but the ship ignores such effects (including ongoing damage).

      Attacks that deal damage throughout an area (typically attacks that target all creatures in a burst) strike more than 1 square when used against a ship, dealing additional damage as follows: burst 1 or 2, 2 damage; burst 3 or 4, 3 damage; burst 5 or larger, 5 damage. Attacks that can target multiple characters function only as a single attack when directed through a spell turret

      Force ballistas: +15 vs. AC; ranged 40; 3d10 force damage. Each force ballista has 10 bolts and is operated by a single character. Firing is a standard action. Activating the magical bolt loader is a minor action.

      Attacks made with the spell turrets and force ballistas of either ship target only the other craft or creatures in the air. These attacks cannot target a character on a ship.

Salazar attempts to wear down the whitewing that Murrak has softened up.

Standard action - Dragonfrost against Astral Whitewing S.

Dragonfrost against Astral Whitewing S. (CA, 24H, Gauntlets): 1D20+22+2+1 = [11]+22+2+1 = 36 1D8+26+2 = [6]+26+2 = 34

Hits Fort 36 for 34 cold damage on Astral Whitewing S, and on a hit, decline to push.

"Readying" Sudden Scales, Fog Form, and Belt of Raging Endurance, in that order.

  •   Details on flying the airship
      The strike ship initially travels at a speed of 10 squares. When brought under control (after complete success in the skill challenge), it travels at a speed of 12 squares. The admiral's flagship has a speed of 8 squares, but it has a significant head start. Because of the turbulence created by the astral gate, neither craft can make a double move in this encounter.

      The lift granted by the astral gate means that it takes only three PCs to control the strike ship—one pilot and two crew. (A ship of this size normally requires a crew of three or more.) For each missing crew member, the ship’s speed is reduced by 2 squares.

      The PC who pilots the strike ship must do so with a standard action and a move action each round. The PCs crewing ship must use a standard action each round to do so. Because those three PCs are actively working the strike ship’s controls, they can make primary skill checks in the skill challenge as minor actions. All other characters make primary skill checks in the challenge as standard actions.

      I, the DM, will keep track of the distance between the two ships from round to round, and of the change in speed of either craft as it takes damage. For every 50 damage either astral craft takes, its speed is reduced by 2 squares. At fly speed 0, a ship floats out of control toward the astral gate. Each warship is equipped with grappling lines that can be fired by the pilot.

      Strike ship information

      HP 500; AC 6; Fortitude 17, Reflex 15; resist 10 all damage; speed 10 (at the beginning of the skill challenge) or 12 (after 5 victories in the challenge). For every 50 damage either astral craft takes, its speed is reduced by 2 squares. The vehicle rules above have been adapted from Adventurer’s Vault.
  •   Run out the guns
      Spell turrets: A character in a spell turret can use the turret to direct any nonweapon ranged or area arcane or divine attack power. A character directing a power through a spell turret uses his or her own attack modifier and deals damage as normal. However, a power directed through a spell turret cannot be used with an implement.

      The magic of a spell turret doubles the range of arcane and divine powers, and allows powers to target inanimate objects even if they normally cannot do so. Characters attacking airborne creatures through a spell turret can make use of any of a power’s effects. Powers that create effects in addition to hit point damage can be used against a ship, but the ship ignores such effects (including ongoing damage).

      Attacks that deal damage throughout an area (typically attacks that target all creatures in a burst) strike more than 1 square when used against a ship, dealing additional damage as follows: burst 1 or 2, 2 damage; burst 3 or 4, 3 damage; burst 5 or larger, 5 damage. Attacks that can target multiple characters function only as a single attack when directed through a spell turret

      Force ballistas: +15 vs. AC; ranged 40; 3d10 force damage. Each force ballista has 10 bolts and is operated by a single character. Firing is a standard action. Activating the magical bolt loader is a minor action.

      Attacks made with the spell turrets and force ballistas of either ship target only the other craft or creatures in the air. These attacks cannot target a character on a ship.

Ravix hold's on the Jib's mainline with all his might. The admiral is getting away! Someone tend to the main sail and pick up the slack. We must not fail!

Standard & Move action: crew the ship

Minor action: Skill challenge - athletics check for 31

Athletics check: (1d20+19=31)

OOC: The force ballistas are weaker than a magic user using the spell turrets or regular spells. Ravenblade or Murrak should take the 3rd position for crewing the ship so we can catch up. If Murrak does it, Valor can still act.
