suggested combat posting format
Suggested Format for combat round posts:
In Character content – describe player actions creatively in normal font:
Text description of character reaction to game situation, and indication of intended action.
Please use 3rd person.
Out of Character Content – give technical details of round intentions in italics, and prefaced ‘OOC:’
In order consider including the the following contet:
- Queries for GM
- OOC indicator of what the character is looking to achieve.
- specifically include and consider being specific against the actions allowed in combat
- If, then, else type descriptions of possible options per scenario may prove useful for flow of the game”
- roll results for the relevant combat rolls/checks the character will be taking (remember all rolls to be done using the rules list under roll the dice)
NB: don’t forget saving a setup for your standard rolls will be useful, including initiative only on the first round of combat.
The goblins begin to charge the party.
Player Post in response:
Fletch the Archer draws a bead on the leading Goblin, pausing a split second to aim for the juglar in his neck. Fletch smoothly looses the arrow.
Initiative (1d20 + 4): 13 + 4 = 17
Just taking Standard Attack Action
Longbow attack #1 (1d20 + 7): 17 + 7 = 24
Longbow damage #1 (1d6 + 2): 3 + 2 = 5
Comments: Using deadly aim: -1 attack; 2 damage
Attack bonus: BAB + Dex – Deadly aim: 4 + 4 – 1 = 7
