Luisila doesn’t look happy about leaving Holly with a slight injury.
“Giovanni owes me a wand charge, Holly. And I’m sure he’d be happy to donate it to you.”

“Hold still, Giovanni! You might feel some pressure …”
Full details of the boon are in Luisila’s profile.
Luisila bows her head and begins chanting, manifesting a huge incorporeal frog’s head at the ceiling of the Blakros Museum. “Mighty Threv, restore this brave man’s power! Show him all the respect he deserves!”
A long, golden tongue shoots out of the disembodied slaadi head, entangling the Opportunistic Attack Master. Shortly after, Giovanni is bathed in Divine power (and a not insignificant amount of toad-lick) ✨restoring his lost vitality. Have that lost level back, Giovanni!
Once the head has reclaimed its tongue and drifted upwards through the ceiling, Luisila goes to work on Giovanni with his own CLW wand.

So after the channel, fandral is down only 3. Not worth the wand charge right now
Fandral looks over to Avelina,"Yes dear, at least this time, I did not walk a way with a cursed wound."
Fandral sheathes his cutlass and clicks his heels together once more to preserve the magic in his boots.
"So where to next?"
"Damn it is sealed"
"Head back down? Or do you think they got it handled"
"I vote to head down."
Luisila re-sets her wand in its spring-loaded sheath. "Time for some pay-back on Nigel's expensive exhibits."
"Did I really just have one woman ask for permission to touch another with my wand?" Obviously, Giovanni found SOMETHING to smile about.
After the tongue releases him, a dripping Giovanni looks around and retrieves his chains. "I bet that's going to hurt in the morning. But I bet it hurts more when you tell this story in the tavern . . .."
"If we can't go up, then we should go back down. There are other Pathfinders down there who might need our help. We're not here to sit in a corner, after all."
Speaking of which, if we're not going to use that Aid token, we should send it on to another table.
"Thank you Giovanni for the use of your wand."
"Downstairs it is. Let's see if our fellow agents need help. Perhaps we will find something more suited to our particular talents there."
[ooc]Lets just get a quick peek at what is downstairs before we pass on the Aid Token.[/b]
Everyone not hurt? “ Amaranti asks, slightly embarrassed of his lack of contribution in fighting the golem. Since the creatures here seem to be very dangerous, he casts a couple more protective spells on himself and his eidolon.
Shield on Amaranti and Kaisharga. Barkskin on Kaisharga
”Down is good.“ he finally agrees with the others.
As you make your way down to the main floor, a younger pathfinder rushes up to you. He brushes some sweat away from his brow before making a quick report. There are blue lions patrolling the west, some animated objects just through those doors to the south, and outback there are some magical runes that seem to have come to life causing havoc in the courtyard.
We may only have time for one or two more of these fights before moving on so I want to give you a choice. If i get a quick response, ill move us forward in about an hour.
Bursting through the doors into the western section of the museum, a scene sure to distress Nigel awaits you. Long shadows cast by ruined displays and broken furniture litter the floor. A humanoid-shaped figure made of shattered clockwork lies slumped over a bench. Above, an elaborately painted sign reads “Crusader’s Chronicles.”
Two large blue cats stand above the broken clockwork man. Their coats shining vividly, these majestic lions look exotic and otherworldly. They gaze with piercing yellow eyes and stand calmly, as though fearless. “Meow,” the creatures greet you. “We’re bored. Let’s play. You can be the wildebeests.” They purr and shake their manes. Then they look at you and smile, “Of course, we’ll be the lions.”

Holly clicks the heels of her boots together and dances forth. She does a neat tight tumble over the lion, dragging her scimitar in a clean slice across the blue lion as she does so, and lands daintily on her feet on its far side.

She then uses one use of her Daredevil Boots (free action) to increase her acrobatics skill as she move through the Blue lions squares.
She then moves 30 feet and makes a single attack.
“You’re correct that we are wild beasts. (OK, maybe not Avelina …)”
Luisila’s eyes narrow as she assesses the tactical situation. “But you’re more LOLcats than lions.”
"I bet that's going to hurt in the morning. But I bet it hurts more when you tell this story in the tavern . . ."
“GIOVANNI VALDRIANO! I’m surprised at you!”
Luisila shakes her head looking disgusted. “Do you think I would use the sacrosanctity of a near-death experience by one of my colleagues – who was SAVED by Calistria’s Grace as what exactly?”
“A cheap laugh in some tavern tale??” *angry muttering*
Tee hee! I totally WOULD!

Holly jumps past one of the blue lions, hitting in with her scimitar, though it seems to do a lot less than she had expected. It’s blue flesh rippled as it seemed to obsorb some of the blow. Though a few trickles of purple blood deep out of the wound.
One of the lions the one to the south (pink) begins to shimmer as if casting a spell-like ability before moving over into a more advantageous position. As soon as it’s ability is used, both it and it’s friend shrink down to the size of a person.
The other lion smiles at Holly and says, You’re fun, let’s play.

I vote to use one of the Aid Tokens starting now. (We have two, right GM Michael?) I would propose:
A Pathfinder agent provides the effects of a bard’s inspire courage bardic performance for 3 rounds.
In Subtiers 10–11, the competence bonus increases to +3.
“Giovanni, I would suggest you get out of Amaranti’s charging lane. Amaranti, I would suggest you wait for Giovanni to act.”
Luisila nocks an arrow. (free) “How about this for a simple plan? Smash them head on until they’re dead.”
The priestess delays until after Giovanni and Amaranti have acted.
I will act for Giovanni this turn if that is OK, GM.

“Hey, cleric! STOP TELLING ME WHAT TO DO!”
The chain-fighter scowls at Luisila. “Just because you saved my life, doesn’t mean I’m gonna line up at the Saucy Wench to buy you a drink when this is over!”

Duh, I'm not sure if's ever been FAQ'd what happens to eidolon in anti-magic field. Blinks out, I guess... But if it's the pink one where the field comes from, then at least I can complete the charge without wondering what happens when mount disappears mid-charge :)
"Kaisharga, CHAAAAAARGE!" Amaranti bellows, and spurs his mount into a devastating... slither. This time, the enemy looks disappointedly small. But then again, they seem to be able to do some nasty tricks.

Amaranti, to answer your question, the eidolon would be suppressed. Meaning that it would disappear while its old space overlapped the anti magic field. Once the anti magic field disappeared or moved, it would come back. I would have required an acrobatics check. On a real good roll I would have had the charge land as normal. On a poor roll, I would have come up with something. Also for anyone within 10 feet of pink. Please do not include any bonuses from spells, supernatural abilities, or magic items. This includes the bardic performance.
Giovanni trips the blue lion he flanks. On its trip to the ground the cat is hit by his attack. But it seems to do much less than expected. Holly's strike seems to go wild as she is suddenly much less dexterous than she was moments before.
Amaranti's charge hits....hard. But the lion is still in the fight, though it is being eaten by a giant worm.

Holly whispers a small prayer to Sarenrae and lashes out at the blue lion. "The lions are suppressing all magic! Be very careful!

Confused, but managing to land on his feet, Amaranti takes a step back to keep attacking. Without his mount, the lance will not be so effective, but he'll just has to rely on his brute strength to kill a lion.

After a loud crack and a ripple of arcane energy, silence falls across the museum as the construct guards freeze in place and haunted relics drop to the ground. Nigel’s voice rings out, magically projected throughout the museum: “We’ve disabled the magical security measures. Since we haven’t found the thieves yet, they must be hiding in my third-story study. Please subdue them; they have much to answer for!”
The clatter of a Pathfinder toppling a clockwork defender garbles some of Nigel Aldain’s announcement, and there are still intermittent sounds of battle throughout the museum. There’s no question that the Society’s efforts have quelled the worst of the trouble, and hopefully that will reassure whoever hides on the third floor.

EDIT: Full disclosure, removed flanking bonuses. Not sure Giovanni flanks with Amaranti.
Amaranti, did you remember to reduce your strength from not having your belt active? I think your to hit is 2 high and your damage is 3 high. I may have missed something though, so let me know.
Holly’s blade seems able to do very little against the flesh of these beasts.
Amaranti manages to draw some more blood with his first hit. If you modifiers we’re right, the second is a hit as well. Let me know.
Luisila aid Giovanni in his next attempt. But Giovanni is just barely unable to trip the naturally stable large cat. His chain manages to hit on a return strike, but it seems to do very little.
They are both still up.
No worries. I did subtract 3 from the +22, for +2 weapon and +2 belt of dex. It's
possible probable that I missed something though :)
Almost guaranteed. Giovanni's got magic items to boost his class abilities, magic weapons, magic items to counter some of his own tactics being used against him, etc. I actually made a spreadsheet so I didn't have to recalculate in various circumstances. Don't have the computer it was on anymore, though.

The dweomerlions retract their claws, and will harm you no further, but are reluctant to leave their current location (suppressing Kaisharga, whom they view as a threat) until you have left the immediate area, this means that Fandral will still need to make his bull rush, but that he will not need to worry about the AOOs.

Fandral moves and attempts to drag his friend out of the magic anti magic zone.

Avelina pops the scroll of breath of life out of her wrist sheath and reads from it over the (soon-to-be-not) dead Amaranti.
Use Magic Device (divine magic, good hope+heroic echo): 1d20 + 31 + 3 ⇒ (18) + 31 + 3 = 52
Breath of Life: 5d8 + 9 ⇒ (4, 2, 5, 5, 4) + 9 = 29
With a sudden sucking breath, Amaranti is returned to life. With the return of his life comes the return of his con from his belt as well. 58 damage left, putting him at 31 out of 89 hitpoints once the temporary negative level is taken into account.

A Kellid woman dressed in furs with intricate scars all over her body steps forward. She holds a hand up and says, “Stay back. We are members of the Twinhorn following, and we have only come to retrieve what was stolen from us.”
A towering figure steps forward; his translucent red form is that of a man clad in heavy armor and wielding twin warhammers. “Medda, they must be in league with the thieves; they should die for crossing us.” The man’s voice sounds hollow and unnaturally loud, and as he speaks, the chandelier glows with a dull light.
The woman, Medda, puts a hand on the figure’s arm and says, “Maybe we should give them a chance to explain themselves, Anok.”
