We will be picking up the battle next session in round 16. Please make sure you have kept track of your spells used, hit points remaining, abilities used, etc. . Please try to develop a game plan for the next session. Salazar (unconscious), Jasmine, Flars and Braun are engaged with Teraktinus. What will Miago do with the wounded stone giant? Where will Miago, Azibar, Emyralda and Maravin head with the last Dimension Door? Where will Rashvin'Vol head? The dragon is still running amuck and unchecked though it has been damaged significantly by spells.
I realize that the battle has been logistically difficult to play. We are covering great distances in a short period of time. There are many enemies spread out through the city and normal combat tactics may not apply. Resources may not be ideal to maneuver the whole party at the same time or distance. That is what makes it a challenge.
I realize that not every character has had the opportunity to shine every round. The physical set up for the game was ambitious and may have been distracting. The number of players and pets make for long combat rounds. It does help if folks know what they expect to do when their turn comes around and that they understand how their power/spell/item works. I understand that as your characters get higher level and better equipped their options expand greatly.
For the most part, I think the party has done a very good job of containing the damage and reacting to the situation. You should take lessons from this fight. It should point out areas of potential need for the future.
Again, I think the food was a great idea and it was delicious. Thank you everyone for participating and making it a success.
As for our next session, I would like to plan one in December. At the moment Saturday, 12/18/10 seems to work for me. I need to confirm that still but how does that look for the rest of you? If Saturday is not good, I would be open to Friday or Sunday too.
