First off, this is an IC only board. Please do not post unless you are playing. Out of character comments, questions or what have you should be posted here.
For those in play, the top part of a post will be the story elements. In a separate paragraph, and preferably in italics feel free to post the mechanical parts of your post.
Biff Barbarian, ducks under the blade of the Orc swinging his great-axe with all his might. Bone and meat were split in a gory crunch as the blade made contact.
Biff's armor class is 14 so that roll of 8 from the orc didn't hit. The orc's AC of 10 was below Biff''s attack roll of 17. Biff hit for 13 points of damage. The orc is at 3 HP.
End mediocre example.
And with that, Let's begin.
