ugh, i designed the mechanics of this encounter to make it feel like you're struggling to stay on your feet and on the boat while confronting this dragon but i feel like it just feels like a dice rolling slog

Well, at least I failed when this means I'm just moving a square instead of when it means I lose 90% of my hp or something.

Fel shouldn't you have a bonus 1d4 on saves due to Garren's BLESS? DS you could roll our saves for this encounter if the others are ok to pick up the pace.

Given the format, it doesn't feel too bad, actually. We've got a few variables up in the air at the moment.

Honestly just roll the saves when the effect triggers rather then waiting half a day for us to get round to it. I mean I wouldn't object to it and it's easier to just slap X lines of code at the bottom of a big post rather then a strong of posts along the lines off;
*save*
You are pushed back
*save*
You are pushed back
*save*
You keep your footing

So is the river 15ft deep or 10ft, I imagine the dragon has flattened itself on the river base.Is it 4-5 feet tall in this condition?

It's about ten feet tall. The river ranges between ten and twenty feet in depth. It is about fifteen feet here. The dragon occupies a fifteen by fifteen cube by the game's rules but it is only about three feet in diameter, with a bigger head, bigger still with its mane. So it is not as tall but it's not 'squeezing' by the rules.

My mistake, I thought it worked like the Bardic Inspiration and I only got a single use of it before spending and decided the effect for failing the save wasn't enough to warrant the use. Now that I'm thinking about it, I made the exact same mistake in my RL game. Yup, I'm dumb :P

I was asking to see if I could stretch and catch a breath while remaining on the dragon. As it is I think I can't. Perhaps if the dragon moves. Is there any way I can keep the spear yanked in to help me stay on the dragon?

That's what I love about doing big speeches and descriptive attacks before rolling. It's always funnier when they flub.

And now we're a bunch of lvl 2s attacking a river dragon. From a boat. In a river.

Sounds like a reasonable plan.

No, you can't stand up to catch your breath. And you can do the second thing, but holding onto the spear is the same as holding onto the dragon.

What in the nine hells did you do to this dragon Fel? Is your gun made or orphan's souls or something? Why does it hate you so much?

Actually on that thought who is currently holding the bird statue? Probably should have asked this sooner.

My best bet is the fact that I'm a draconic sorcerer is the cause of all this. Chen Wu's mad experiments infused him with dragon essence. I *think* that's the problem.

This name Goldspill is not strange to me. Do we know anything about this place, DS?

Goldspill is the town where the tributary meets Gold River on the map. It is where Ong becomes Oshi.

Sorry, this week has been exhausting and I've given up some of my time not working or sleeping to do "exercise".

I also forgot to ask for concentration checks from Chen Wu but I rolled one and said that Chen Wu kept his concentration.

So just to check are we still in initiative order or is the battle effectively over and we can act whenever now?

Sorry again, everyone. So exhausted lately.
