I say don't worry about the Lower Deck. Valerious should roll to try and grab Kazza. If he fails, Khat will try - not good odds, but a chance. Then the rest kill the beastie, and Kazza needs to catch herself.

Can do. My understanding is that if Valerius or Khat can grab hold of her, she doesn't need to make any checks to land on the envelope or grab hold of the netting. So, I might wait to see if Valerius manages to grab hold of her before attacking and hopefully killing the bird.

Sorry if it's taking me a minute. I had some bad news and it's... yeah. It's not ideal.

Maybe slightly dramatic, but yeah. "I just want to know if I'm going to get shoved into bankruptcy with this." "Oh, no, nobody's trying to railroad you." Yeah, you just want me to bleed sustainably. >

I didn't want to railroad your actions, I just wanted to offer options. Any other actions would have been fine, too. But I though that jumping up to Kazza and holding her would be the nearest solution and the players might want to know the rules for this.

I think FatherDondo was talking about their real life situation.

I'm sorry, that's the depression gremlin in the back of my head giving me existential dread about my financial situation. That's my fault for giving incomplete context. (I actually forgot I put that up )

I'm sorry to read this. Thanks for the explanation and don't worry about me. My poor English surely added a big part to my misunderstanding.

We are waiting for the resolution of the deck fighting, LeDragon? I think you have what you need for Cujo, but let me know if not.

I wait for Saluruk's actions and rolls.

Meanwhile, the upper team may act on their own.

How far/long to get down to the lower deck? Assuming Kazza's 45 ft. speed and 'falling' the last 20 ft. Can she do it and still take an action?

Climbing over the railing of yhe crow's nest, opening the hatch and 'falling' down to the main deck takes one full round.

Well speaking of falling saluruk missed the ropes. His strengths just aren't agreeing with the dice.

@delpinator: maybe this is the right time to activate your luck and make a re-roll.

--------------------------

@all: I'll post at the weekend. Sorry. But my life is very busy these days (both kids are ill, my wive is at training sessions in the city all day since weeks,...) and I must spend all free time to avoid my life to become one big mess.

Thanks for you patience!

@LeDragon, Im going to do what I would do in real-life, because Khats +0 strength is going to make any Str(Athletics) roll dicey.

As I understand it, Khats harness has two 10ft lengths of rope attached to allow securing to a single point and then moving to another. Khat is going to brace herself with her legs against something (e.g., railing, post) next to where Suluruk is going over and then toss over the rope for Suluruk to grab.

In DnD Mechanics, Im hoping this will allow her to use push/drag/lift weight limit (330) rather than carrying capacity (165). Although, I think that Suluruk will need to climb the rope, rather than be pulled in, because I think that Suluruk plus his gear is greater than 330.
