That is probably not a good thing. Tretcherous Flying XP hogs incoming. Probably the best use we could get out of Charlie would be to buy a good map of the surrounding lands off of him or use his thinkamancy services to coordinate with our ruler.

(Btw, do the casters (including Junetta) have any knowledge of the price of scrolls / items in the Magic Kingdom. I would prefer to have a 2 way hat that I can message our ruler with instead of having to pay Charlie for a thinkagram everytime.)

The casters in the room don't know. Most have never been to the Magic Kingdom, and Coil... well, let's just say he wasn't really interested in hats the last time he was there and leave it at that.

You're currently unable to contact Junetta.

I volunteer to go explore the MK once we're back!

Edit: Oops. Too excited. No portal in Dis City. :(

Assuming work lets me out at a reasonable time today, the next turn will be run this evening. The consensus seems to be to go for the 'Zerg Rush' approach. Please have your final instructions in before 8pm CST.
Edit : Scratch that. Working late tonight. Turn will be run tomorrow. Sorry for the delay.

Turn 4
The bone dagron burninates, dusting 2 more uncroaked and heavily damaging a 3rd. Tod and his team fail to notice a whole in their defenses, and one of the champions races across the room, smashing Bill's ward and injuring him. Yuri and the uncroaked have pinned the dagron in the corner, but their numbers are dwindling and the dagron's uncroaked are getting better and better at dancing...

Uh oh. Bill's in a right ol' spot now.

Renew Bill if his ward is down and he has less than 4 hits remaining. Otherwise restore his ward if it's down. Otherwise maintain wards/heal others.

Do I need to move elsewhere to keep from getting attacked as well?

Bother, it's only round 4 and we've already let a melee unit reach a caster. This is what I meant when I said the Zerg plan was somewhat dangerous.

Bill, I'm sorry, but despite having the the ability to finish off that bone champion before he attacks again, I cannot help you out next round. If I move from my spot, then anything spawning at portal H gets a free pass at the rest of the squishies and I can't allow that. The good news is, you should survive the champion's next attack regardless of his roll. (8com+12roll-4def-8ward-9hits remaining=-1, meaning 1 hit remaining on Bill even if the Champion rolls extremely well.) (Bill, I suggest you say that the healomancy scrolls you're carrying are free for use next round. This is kind of the situation they were made for.)

Dagron damage progress report: Trogdor has a 21/36 chance of one hitting a member of green man group despite their def. That means Green man group has a 21/36 chance of being good for about 6 attacks of ~9 damage each next round, for a total of ~54 damage, or a 15/36 chance of being good for 7 of ~10 for ~70. Will can do ~7 and T.Coil can do ~15, so that is ~76or~92 depending on Trogdor's roll. (Yuri would be ~8 and Rolf ~12, but with only 7 melee spots on the dagron, not everyone can join in. Rolf and Yuri may also be better used else where as my next point states.) We should know after this round if the Dagron is likely to go down in round 6 or 7. (Round 7 means it gets a burninate.)

This round is when things start to get worrying with the reconstituted uncroaked. Unless Trogdor starts eating immediately, we can expect 6 more enemies to appear at the top of the round. (2 Bone champions and 4 lesser dance fighters.) Currently, our defensive line consists of myself and 4 7/7/14 lesser uncroaked. It simply cannot be trusted to hold against against that onslaught. Without intervention, we can expect holes to form this round and for Will and the Casters to be vulnerable to enemy attack in round 6. Tod will be staying where he blocks enemies from moving away from the H portal. I'm going to have Rolf go thru S8, R7, and O7 to M9 where he can block the M portal. I ask that Yuri try to block the R portal. (Both heavies are carrying Healing potions, so they have that option for healing.)

Well, if there's no danger of friendly fire then Will shall try to annihilate the threat to Bill.

I've a bit of concern that if Yuri pulls back we'll be letting up pressure on the Bone Dagron, but there's not a ton to be done about that, I suppose. Since enemies would appear from the portals prior to Yuri's action, I should be able to conditionally attack either enemies from the R portal or, if there are no R portal enemies (presumably because the Bone Dagron wanted health) then keep smacking the Bone Dagron.

I can also land somewhere and be in the way, although it shouldn't be too close to the portals because I am a bit squishy

By the time you can act, Healomancy might be a better choice. And you'll probably be casting it on yourself since that bone champion is likely to get another attack in.

Oy - I intend to heal you, which should cover the damage you take. Do we have no other options? (It might be better for you to Fire someone even).

Given that we're about to see 6 enemies spawn at the top of next round and beseige or defenses, using both your and Bill's actions to top Bill off with full hits/full ward while our defense is still holding seems like a good precaution.

However, Bill can indeed be used to eliminate either yellow L01 or L03 before they can act next round. (Cupid would presumedly get the other one.) If we were more sure about what could possibly attack Bill before you or he could act in round 6, (the round after the one we're currently giving orders for,) then we might find the precaution unneeded, freeing up Bill. (Bill also has the option of taking the dancefighting special and joining a dance stack to boost his atk/def. As he has a croakamancy ability that unlocks at Lvl 4 which uses dance-fighting as a prerequisite, the AP wouldn't be much of a sacrifice. (However, Bill has previously expressed a desire to first take the other 2 level 4 croakamancy abilities.))
