Lady Emyralda moved forward and channeled positive energy again. The wave healed 2 damage from Cando, Wahesh and Barnacleez. Barnacleez followed the cleric and used his wand once more. The Magic Missile hit the goblin to the west and dealt 4 damage. The monster fell.

Please provide a little more direction in your turn posts

Just something that has come to mind over the last several turns. For those of you posting conditional actions, I am doing my best to try to determine what your character would do.

That said, while it is helpful to say that you try to gain flanking, it is not as helpful if you do not identify the target and/or maximum movement you plan to take. If I do not know where you are thinking of moving or which target you have an eye upon it is hard to get the result you are hoping to achieve.

There have been several instances where a character could move to flanking but not move and attack. I have been assuming that you always want the attack regardless if you gain flanking. If you can achieve both it is a bonus.

Lady Emyralda channeled positive energy and healed her companions. The wave of energy healed 6 damage from Cando, Wahesh and Barnacleez. Barnacleez stepped toward cover and targeted the goblin to the south west with his wand of Magic Missile. The spell dealt 4 damage to the monster. Wahesh moved to engage the goblin to the south. The fighter swung his longsword but missed the mark. Cando took a five-foot step and attacked the south-western goblin with two swings of his double axe. The half-orc hit with the first swing and inflicted 4 damage but missed with the second attack.

The goblin to the east shot at Ro-Mahn with his shortbow. The arrow missed the rouge and the goblin moved further to the north. The goblin to the south five-foot stepped back and tried to shoot Wahesh. The monster fumbled the arrow as it tried to nock it and misfired. The western goblin five-foot stepped away from Cando and fired at Barnacleez. The arrow struck the sorcerer and dealt 2 damage.


As the goblin to the north was out of easy reach, Ro-Mahn moved forward and attacked the southern goblin. The rouge thrust with his rapier but missed his target. Stabem rushed forward and attacked the western goblin. The halfling stabbed with his rapier and dealt 2 damage. The goblin looked woozy after three successful attacks but it was still standing.
