Grappling with Grappling

Postby Sammy » Fri Jun 01, 2012 10:53 am

Bruno know not everyone good at grappling as Bruno. Bruno grapple words to help you.

"I WANT TO GRAPPLE IT!"

Bruno proud of you! Roll your CMB vs its CMD.

No have Improved Grapple? Uh oh, it gets an AOO on you! If you take damage, deduct damage from your CMB when you roll.

FAILURE?
You grapple like pathetic goblin! Get ready to eat a full attack or spell!

SUCCESS?
You've grapple like Bruno! You both gain the 'grappled' condition.

(Bruno doublecheck with other monks and confirm that natural 20 is autosuccess and natural 1 is autofailure.)


"I'VE GRAPPLED IT! NOW WHAT?"

Bruno say good job! Defender has own options. Bruno save those for "I'VE BEEN GRAPPLED! HELP!" section.

Now, it your next turn! Your new pal no escape.

You can end grapple as free action if you want. Only weak wimps do that...or people who want to full attack...or 5' step away and drink a potion...or do some other tactical crap. Bruno and other real men...

...make another CMB v CMD check! Since you control grapple, you get +5 to your CMB roll! Opponent will have lower CMD because of grappled condition.

FAILURE?
You weak like mage! Creature no longer grappled! It is free! Get ready to eat a full attack or spell!

SUCCESS!
You true icon of masculinity. You can choose to:

-Do nothing! You just wanted to hug creature and maintain grapple. You're doing it!

-Move half speed with grappled target! Haha! You can plunk that punk elsewhere! You can set up melee folks who are far away or drop enemy off a cliff...but if you put it in a hazardous square (like off of cliff or in wall of fire), it get another chance to break grapple with +4 bonus.

-Do Unarmed Damage! Roll your unarmed damage! Squish him real good!

-Pin enemy! You pin the enemy and give them the super nasty pinned condition!


"I'VE PINNED HIM! WHAT NOW?"

Bruno bow before your grappling skills.

If want to move half speed with grappled target, do unarmed damage or just maintain grapple, roll CMB v CMD (remember bonuses and penalties).

Better yet, you can tie up creature, with another CMB check! Escape Artist DC is 20 + your CMB (remember, your CMB is also +5 from being controlling Grappler at time of tie up). If DC higher than 20 + creature's escape artist skill, creature can not escape bonds. Period. Escape Artist is skill check, so natural 20 is not autosuccess.

Is up to GM if tied up creature can be Coup De Graced.

Bruno now list defender options in second post.

"HOLY CRAP, I GOT GRAPPLED!? HELP!"

Bruno say, don't panic tiny delicate person. Unless you are not Bruno, then maybe panic a little.

You have options:

ESCAPE! If grappled, you can try to make CMB or escape artist check vs opponent's CMD to get out of it!

FAILURE!
You are still grappled like weak pathetic baby you are.

SUCCESS!

HAHA! Stupid monster not strong enough to hold you!

-GRAPPLE! You can become controlling grappler with CMB v CMD roll.

FAILURE!
You make Bruno sad with your bad grappling. Foe still in control.

SUCCESS!
You now controlling grappler! You now get +5 to maintain grapple and can do cool grappling stuff.

-ATTACK! If you have one-handed weapon (or have natural weapon), you can attack with -2 penalty. This includes full attacking!

-CAST SPELL! You can cast spell without Somatic components! Must make concentration check DC of 10 + attacker's CMB + spell level.

FAILURE!
Puny spell fizzle.

SUCCESS!
HAHA! Enemy eat spell to face.


"I'M PINNED! AM I EFFED?!"

Bruno feel very, very sorry for you if you get pinned.

You can only take mental or verbal action--so, no spells with somatic or material components. Or you can try to escape with Escape Artist or CMB roll. That's it.

This post needs more cowbell.

Also, situations regarding grapple from those monsters without Improved Grab and such.
But mostly more cowbell.
