Quick aside on Hornetor's Dive, vardeman: where are you seeing rules for bonus movement on a flying dive? Not that I'm nitpicking--I've just never seen them and it sounds wicked awesome.

Sorry, I must be trying to insert that from the 3.X ruleset.  That basically said that movement up was at half and movement down was doubled.  I'll adjust my actions to 2 moves and 1 attack.

Distance d travelled by an object falling for time t:

d = 1/2 × g × t2 = 16 × t2

Time t taken for an object to fall distance d:

t = sqrt(2d/g) = sqrt(2d/32)

Which is a round about way to say that in grossly simplistic terms -- ignoring things like mass and drag due to surface area --  it takes slightly over 3.5 seconds to drop 200 ft, but I thought people might find the maths interesting.

DC 25 Fort save vs dying (I choose to make this save first)
DC 25 Fort vs. dying (1d20+24=25) Wow, typical.  Thunderbird fails.
[/spoiler]

Ragnarok, couldn't you just spend an Action Die and succeed at that save vs death from massive damage?

I thought ones were automatic fails no matter what.  In either case, I agree with Mr. Anderson, Thunderbird was going to have to make 3 hard will saves to even get a chance to act due to the immolation and all his Frenzy was used up.  If ones are not autofailure for saves, I would appreciate a head's up for future reference however.

I thought this discussion came up before. :p

Ragnarok, as was pointed out to me recently... an error only occurs when you roll in the error range AND a check fails.  Since your check succeeded, it's not an error, and thus can't be a Critical Failure.

And, actually, I only see threats/errors for Skills and Attacks, not Saves.
Good to know.  Thanks

Of course, if glimmerrat wants to have 1's auto-fail for this Kaiju rumble-fest, I'm cool with that.

Wow, I am so used to systems where 1's are auto fail it just didn't register.  Thanks.

That's the beauty of a "heroic" system, my man.

Of course, it also means 20s don't always succeed, so take it as you will.

No, 1s aren't auto fails on saves. However, if Ragnarok is happy to call it a day, then that is what we shall do. Victory to Pele!

Also, unless Foproy objects then Hornetor should just roll the 20d6 falling damage to speed things along.

Last post is now edited to show the fall damage (poor roll :-( 56 = 14 below average)
That should prompt a table of ouch and a death save, right?

Correct me if I'm mistaken, but aren't extraordinary attacks limited to one per round?

True, except for Frenzy.  Frenzy extra actions can include an extraordinary attack, but there's limitations.
