"Wish You Were Here. Love, The Pirate"
Dag, okay, you kill one of the pirates on you, and the other guy hits you for 8.
Theodore, well every time you level, you can add two spells of any circle you can cast to your book. So if you don't have any 2nd circle spells, you have only yourself to blame. Snap?
Pirate misses you. He writes you a letter.
KT, your dog poo druid spells provide lots of healing for the party, killed a pirate, and got you the spiderbot. Not sure what you were expecting?
And also, the whole thing about bows in melee isn't so much about how useful or useless you'd be, it's about what's realistic. I just don't want to hear you guys complain when, in the next module or two, you face some gnoll archers or guys who joust you with heavy lances every round.
Back to the show. Tut, you wound your pirate, and the bot kills one of its. Return fire: 8 on the bot, 5 on you.
Spiderbot: down 20
