You can use inches, feet and miles for metric system, in case the conversion is too bothersome.
I believe 6 feet is closer to 1,80 meter, because 2 meters would be the same as the height of a basketball player. hehehe

I knew it was going to be mostly-actually-taller-than-6-feet (6' 6.74" to be precise), and rounded up. Taller than the halfling is taller than the halfling ;)

Maybe I should stick to in-world references? (orc-high? a stone's throw? within bowshot?*) or would that get annoying, too?



* "Which bow??" Shaddup, peanut gallery. :P

A stone's throw is relative, because Horvik would certainly throw it farther away than Pio would.
What if the orc for the reference is a midget orc?

Didn't.... X8 have green pygmy orcs...? :lol:

And... because of OSHA and Union rules, we can't measure in dwarf-throws anymore.... :mrgreen:

"Unto the breach my friends it is then! Once we're over the rubble, I'll try and use what cover there is to get close to these kobolds, you two cover me with missile fire."

Haldon checks his warhammer and shield are ready for use, and starts towards the rubble.
"LEROOOOOOOOOOOOY JENKINS!" :D

So, for reference and tactical discussion, here is the battle map:
Image

I usually indicate positions with colored dots, so please choose a color from the colored text drop down and I'll try to mirror it as best I can in my map updates. I've slapped together a coordinate system, which (hopefully?) should make things easier to plot who wants to go where.

I'll just need a color and starting positions. (No need for initiative..... yet!)

Edit: Shannon is accounted for!
Edit: Haldon accounted for!
Edit: Horvik and Pio added!

For example, in another play by post i run(on a board with black background, where every character's dialogue had a color), the PC's "dot" matched their speech color:

You want us to each pick a colour and pin-point where we are and where we are going on the map?

Totally not to scale, but the party was more or less grouped around the red "X", just before the road climbs up to the level of the plateau:

So, considering the possibility of going around the walls under the guise of a kobold, Pio could find another entrance and pass by one of them trying to get in.

Speaking would be a problem however. We would need a very clear sign for the rescue.

Perhaps if the rest of you follow stealthily while close to the wall so no one up there can see you.

Seems to be some conflicting plans and folks have started moving, so Horvik is taking action to prepare for either. He will move next to the wall but closer to the gate (2,13 NE). He will hold there an decide whether to follow the group through the rubble or attempt to bust through the gate depending on what happens.

Do you have a preference for Horvik's "token" color...?

For Pio, the color can be black, please.
Because he is going to be a shady halfling.

I just picked a place halfway between both entrances and then see what the rest of the party does. If you'll going through that main gate, then I'll cover your back.

Once the girls and the whelps have gone into the main keep, how many guards will be left outside?
