This battle looks quite dangerous, with so many orcs. The majority are probably minions, but it might be a good idea for the melee characters to stay near the walls and in twos, so as not to get flanked. Does anyone's character except Ishara, have large multi-target powers? Mika has Hymn of Resurgence which confers a permanent -2 to all defenses in burst 5 on a a hit for each enemy.

My two encounter powers are both Burst 1, so that's something.

All I require is someone getting into melee with one of the non-minions (I presume those are minions). I'll find my way behind, I ain't too worried about being flanked.

Remember we can ready actions to take advantage of flanking and such. At least that is what I tried to do, but I think rolling a 2 for a total of 15 vs AC won't hit this time around.

It'll be effectively 17 vs AC if Mika's Astral Seal has hit! Also, this isn't a level 6 encounter, where it seems the DM is making it IMPOSSIBLE to hit damn, creepy-crawlies with eight legs. ;)

Since Carric isn't flanking red with Edeya, the orc minions will go next. Assuming Edeya survives their turn AND assuming Khemnos will flank red with Edeya (to not waste her nice set-up), THEN Edeya's readied action would happen before Khemnos' possibly hits red, right? Just checking in advance, since I expect Edeya to be injured very soon, so if her attack hits red first then she will be the one to regain the 12 hp from Astral Seal. Am I thinking it our correctly?

Ready Actions occur after the trigger set. So if the trigger is, someone comes in to flank, then it would go before the other attack. You are then placed in initiative immediately before the triggering action.

Delve 7 Tactics

So we survived the first of three encounters, despite not having a leader in the party. If the second battle takes as high a toll on all our surges, then it will be very interesting in the last battle. Let's tally our resources and then maybe divide them. I'll start and you guys can add to the list by quoting this post and copying. Also, if Etherra has the comrade's succor ritual, we might want to redistribute some surges at some point; either now or after the second battle. Speaking of which, we should ALL use an action point in the second battle, since we'll be gaining one at the end of it.

I don't think Hulk has any healing potions, but he has lots of ways to get healing in battle. Last encounter, I think he basically took around 150 damage, but it only took off about 80 HP.

Grim, too, has a few immediate actions that can mitigate damage taken, and since he only had to use one surge, he will play more front and center in the next battle.

So, as far as resources go, this is what we have so far. Anyone else have anything?

Saphiro: 3 healing potions, 1 potion of regeneration
Grim: 1 healing potion
Hulk: no healing items

Etherra has no healing potions. Never though to get any, OOC, as I assumed we'd have a leader type...

Also, don't have the Comrade's Succor ritual.
