I have one extra Charm of Thorny Barbs to lend as well.

Curious if the casters might be open to using cabal gloves. If we can, that means being able to duplicate retribution scrolls. I have 2 sets of the gloves I can loan (plus me using 1.) That could add another 3-8 retribution damage to 2 players for each scroll we use. A bard doing this really results in crazy high retribution numbers.

Ooh, interesting idea!

As Cleric I would be happy to borrow cabal gloves, though I would also need help with the scrolls themselves (even though Scroll Sunskin is only common, I don't have them lying around because 2021 treasure never ended up being a thing).

On another note, I think Nightmare might not be totally impossible this time around... but if we decide to attempt it, we will need to be SUPER organized and run combat like a well-oiled machine to get enough rounds in (which means not having as much time to laugh and joke around). We can decide in coaching, but I'm going to make two versions of my Cleric build just in case.

Yes, my AC is lower than the Wizard's. No regrets!

Does anyone have 2-3 extra Potion Eel’s Defense? Looks like I mulched all but one. :S (I’ll probably get more with my V8b treasure, but that doesn’t help with this run.) If not, no worries, and I’ll save it for the boss fight.

Belinda, I have a few potions of Eels defense. Definitely one to loan out for room 7

Fred, I could take the gloves, but I don’t have any ret scrolls to contribute. It would break up my DK set bonus (I’m druid) but if it gets more ret overall then it’s a win, and I can tank lower my AC further as a bonus.

With a higher average ret and a “serious” room 7 I’m happy to try NM.

By my count we have 4 casters and 3 cabal gloves, so if Christine (Bard) wants to wear the other gloves then you could keep your DK set.

I might have a couple extra potions too if we spring for NM.

D'oh! I thought this but didn't type it--if I do borrow any Potion Eel's Defense, I will gladly repay them. I can either hand them off at GHC or mail them. And if someone would rather have other AI units, that's fine too.

(Borrowing more Eel's Defense might not be needed on HC; happy to take advice from people who have done this type of run before.)

If you need to borrow any eels defense don't worry about it. I have a stack of about 25 or so at the moment and I'm not worried about them being paid back if people need to use some. They are here to be used

HEDGEHOG VICTORY!

Ran Nightmare, won all four combats, used up every single healing spell and power available. Sadly half of our Fighter is gone forever, but everyone else made it to Epilogue alive whereupon several of us sacrificed our survivor pins to inflict RD on the epilogue volunteer too. :P

Base stats before adding RD potions and cabal-duplicated scrolls...

Barbarian: 11 ac, 24 rd, 9 melee dr
Bard: 15 ac, 20 rd, 0 melee dr
Cleric: 13 ac, 23 rd, 8 melee dr
Druid: 12 ac, 25 rd, 4 melee dr
Dwarf: 16 ac, 19 rd, 6 melee dr
Fighter: 12 ac, 22 rd, 4 melee dr
Ranger: 6 ac, 19 rd, 2 melee dr
Rogue: 11 ac, 19 rd, 9 melee dr
Paladin: 9 ac, 27 rd, 4 melee dr
Wizard: 16 ac, 18 rd, ? melee dr

MISS COUNT (so high! DM kept rolling nat 1's)
Dwarf : 04
Paladin (guarding Bard): 04
Druid: 03
Wizard: 02
Rogue: 01
Ranger: 01
Fighter: 01
Cleric: 01

Thanks for playing, everybody! I won't be able to do V10b, but keep your eyes open for a V11b hedgehog run, likely starting between 3-4pm on Sat Nov 5.
