Can I batter the books without batting Ava's beau at the same time?

I dunno, but I'll edit my action to 5ft step out of the swarm just in case.

Okay so two things: 1) I'm back baby. 2) I never actually increased Culpa's health. Are we just rolling that? 3) I cannot count. 4) I'd like to remain auto'd until the end of the fight if at all possible because... Well reasons.

Writing up the update soon; I'm going to be trying to update at least twice a week from here on out. I may miss some updates, but I'll do my best to stick to that.

As an aside, it's starting to feel like combat goes on as more of a formality than anything here. Once the fight here is done, I was considering making combat much rarer and instead simply awarding XP for story-related events. This will help get through the story much quicker, and remove a lot of the slow "I attack. Again" aspect from it. There will still be some combat, but generally limited only to major encounters. What I'm considering doing is presenting a general encounter, such as "A horde of orcs come into view", then asking for a general strategy for combat. From there, I'll run the combat automatically until a significant event occurs, such as heavy player wounding, a new threat appearing, etc. and post the results.

What are your thoughts on the above system? Regardless of the answer, do you think the campaign needs less combat?

I think getting us to provide a general strategy and then you handle it until say someone is incapacitated is a great idea.

Yeah. Not less combat, but more streamlined?

Let us give a set of orders before a fight-you run it until someone loses too much HP, or the situation alters enough our orders have to be changed. You could handle it all in one post then...

It isn't dead, don't worry: Just dealing with some family matters, so I've been busy.

Sorry. A lot of things came up; my dog has cancer, a bit of family drama, sickness, so on and so forth. However, things have died down, so I should be able to update regularly again.

I wonder if that was dark humor...
