Mr Peppers nods with a stern face as he sees his bolt did its job, and then when an overgrown Uesugi jumps in front of him that stern face turns to a big smile "Let me reiterate Uesugi how much I enjoy your company at times like these..."

Then the expected blast of acid comes, causing the Elf to flinch back a bit Better he than I... he'll be fine.

"Your betrayal saddens all of us, Razethka. Unfortunately your efforts will be in vain."

She calls to her allies. "Focus on the dragon. I will handle these two." She turns to the Sahaugin. "Now is not the time for conflict. Calm down."

I'm casting Calm Emotions . Will Save DC 17 to resist calming down.

Uesugi instinctively moves in front of Mr. Peppers shielding the frail elf from the blast but in turn feels the full effect of brine dragon's breath attack.

"WE...all have our...roles. Let us finish this now!" Uesugi grinds his teeth as the acid burns through the magical aid provided by the archon.

HP should be at -10 GM

Uesugi retaliates and sends a blade from his crown at the brine dragon.

Question for the GM: my mutagen has the Beastmorph property, which means it adds 10 feet to my "base speed". Would this apply whenever I gain additional types of movement, like swim speeds? So, does the combination of Monkey Fish and my Mutagen together give me a 20 foot swim speed?

Gallix kicks hard to swim through the openings in the enormous shell toward the traitorous brine dragon. "Coming through, folks. You guys stay back and let 'Sugi and I take care of Raz. D, feel free to send in some of your dark blasts too! As for me, I picked up some tricks from the Twinhorns when we fought together. Let's see how it works out."

If Swim speed is 20ft:
Move, free action to use my Martial Tradition boon and gain the use of Power Attack for 3 rounds, then attack with Thundergale. This attack will also use the Brawler's Knockout ability. If the attack hits and deals damage, Razethka must make a DC 19 Fortitude save or fall unconscious for 1d6 rounds.
Gallix swings Aquel's morningstar with both hands at the dragon, grateful that the spikes on the weapon should make it somewhat hydrodynamic. As he brings the weapon down in an overhead strike, he calls to the dragon, "Time to go night night!"
Thundergale, Mutagen, IC/GH, PA: 1d20 + 13 + 2 + 4 - 4 ⇒ (15) + 13 + 2 + 4 - 4 = 30 Damage (B+P), Mutagen, IC/GH, PA (2 handed); Shock damage: 1d8 + 4 + 2 + 2 + 4 + 6 ⇒ (7) + 4 + 2 + 2 + 4 + 6 = 251d6 ⇒ 1

If Swim speed is 10ft:
Move 10 ft and use a standard action to use my Ranginori's Debt boon to cast a spell.
Gallix swims ahead, but realizes he can't make it all the way to the dragon without exposing himself to an attack without even getting one off himself. Suddenly, a feeling like a gentle breeze washes over him, and he suddenly recalls the Elemental Lord Ranginori whom he and the rest of the Pathfinder Society had helped free from Aucturn's Tear. Inspired by the breeze, he looks down at the electrically infused weapon in his hand, then reaches out to that gentle breeze. He raises and hand, slams it down on the spikes of the weapon, then clutches at the arcs of electricity coursing off it like a bundle of wires. He raises his ball of electricity above his head and, with a smile, mutters, "Hey Peppers, check this out!"

Looks like Uesugi takes no damage beyond his temp. HP with that Saving Finale. And yes Gallix, I believe it does apply

Will Save, Black sahuagin + shaken: 1d20 + 6 - 2 ⇒ (11) + 6 - 2 = 15

Razethka, Fort save: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (14) + 11 = 25
Razethka, Will Save: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (5) + 10 = 15

One sahuagin is much too angry to calm down, but the black one drops his guard. "Dude... This water... So crystalline and cool."

Uesugi's magical force sword pokes Razethka laughably in retaliation. Gallix slams Thundergale into Razethka's scaled maw, but she's steady enough to avoid falling unconscious. "Ah, how brave of you to come this close to me. We'll see who goes night night in just a few seconds." Cup tosses a handful of dust into the water, blinding the dragon!

Zahra screams from the throne. "Red Arm of Absalom, I was foolish to trust Razethka. She had helped with a previous expedition, so I had no reason to believe she was so corrupt. PITIFUL!" She yells, tugging at the seaweed ropes binding her down.

I have moved D.Arth so that he has LoS with Razethka, and I moved Gallix up next to Razethka given his previous attack.

D.Arth's blast is particularly powerful, and he blasts some scales off of Razethka, revealing some of the scars underneath the anemones she had used as concealer. Not quite critically

Sahuagin black continues staring into space. "Man, the blues and purples, so cool..."

"You idiot, snap out of it!" The red one growls, rushing towards Uesugi and provoking

Uesugi watches as the sahuagin attempts to close quarters with him and slices his blade to meet the battle crazed creature.

Uesugi eyes the dragon out the corner of his eye and propels his blade of force to attack Razethka again.

His attention never waning from his immediate threat he waits for Little Dragon to distact the sahuagin and then strikes three times looking to end the creature's life.

Mr. Peppers lets fly a barrage of magical missiles and Uesugi strikes the sahuagin opportunely. The blade of force misses Razethka, and then Uesugi strikes twice more, one slice bloodying up the sahuagin! Underwater penalties and no haste

Razethka roars into the water, angered she'd managed to take so many wounds from mere humans and elves (and gnomes). "And now... You die."

Not halved because a brine dragon is native to water. Sorry, man! Saved by the Temp HP.

Razethka first bites Gallix's side, then claws through his chest and smacks him in the face with her tail. After releasing him, she bludgeons the bloodied brawler with both wings. Gallix passes out from the pain.

She adds a mighty roar afterwards for effect "You weak sack of bones and flesh. Did you really think you could take on a dragon?"

D.Arth's blast surrounds Razethka, enveloping her in a void of negative energy. The energy tears at her flesh and burns at her internal organs, dozens of deep lacerations splitting her scales. As she struggles to escape, she releases a roar loud enough to cause the entire seashell to tremble, many of the coral walls shattering into pieces, and then slumps to the bottom of the chamber, dead.

Seeing Razethka killed, both Sahuagin rush out of the room, attempting to flee from combat. The duo dart up to the top of the shell and swim back out to the expanse. Red provokes from Uesugi

Combat over!

Uesugi lets the sahaugin swim away his concern centered on his fallen brother. "Take your time to make sure the barbarian is alright to move. Whatever threat there was is now done. As is the traitor." Uesugi swims over to the dead traitor "The creature will befoul this temple both in physical and in spiritual form. But it will not matter now this place will soon be abandoned by all I think."

Gallix blinks to consciousness as Peppers and Sirettis heal him. As he rights himself in the water, he looks to his friends and asks, ”So on a scale of one to ten, how awesome was that?” A smile splits across his face and he wipes the blood away from his lips. ”Man, I wish I could’ve gotten in a couple more hits, but I gotta say I felt pretty damn cool taking a couple whacks at this bastard.” He lays a hand on the dragon and chuckles. ”What did I tell you? We’re the Red Arm of Absalom...”

He hands Sirettis his wand and asks for a few more hits of healing.

Razethka is deader than dead, though her scales and head are free for the taking should D.Arth want a living room trophy for his estate.

Zahra rubs her wrists and wounds as Uesugi cuts down the seaweed ropes. "It seems you have found both The Breath of Lysianassa and Riam's last spawn. The expedition was a success, though many maridar perished, you've saved the two here," she looks back at the other two hostages that had been chained to the throne, a sullen look on her face. "Regardless, Vialesk is safe now. Let us return in triumph!"

Aquel offers her thanks and tells you she'll return to Elysium. She tells you that now untethered from Lysianassa's Breath, the giant shell will slowly sink to the bottom of the sea.

The trip back to Vialesk is uneventful, and luckily, Zahra provides you with enough water breathing potions to last you the duration of the trip. A funeral feast is held in recognition of the slain maridar, and after the feast, the surviving maridar offer to carve coral sculptures in honor of each of you, though Gallix's constant revisions on what the perfect pose for his sculpture would be means the job takes several hours longer, and makes for some annoyed undine!

Back at Grand Lodge, Master of Spells Sorrina Westyr is relieved to see you. She examines The Breath of Lysianassa with her mouth agape. "I've never seen something quite this powerful. Congratulations on a successful trip to the Plane of Water, and retrieval of the artifact into the Society's care. It is sad to hear a trusted ally of Zahra's turned out to be a two-timing dragon, but I suppose you can never be sure. Either way, well done!"

Scenario's done, and all boons were obtained! (Including the Dark Archive one for you Zarta lovers)

<Take that, you vile traitorous dragon! Watching you chill it before the very life was snuffed out... so exciting!> It speaks through the streams of water. <Too bad you didn't get to try your other new ability on her- it only affects humanoids. Harumph.>

Sirettis is surprised to hear it, even out here. She almost does a double take over high excited it is. We have lost many lives today, although we have made a few important allies.

<Oh yes. Keep an eye on Zahra. If she tries to skimp on any of those potions, crush her mind and take the potions for yourself! No way will you die here!>

Sirettis shakes her head and looks at Isa. "Can you hear it now, Isa?"

Isa chirps, uncomfortably. "Yeah, I can hear it just fine. Is it always this excited? Or is it a thing with traitors?"

Sirettis ponders for a moment before shrugging.

The next few weeks are spent enjoying the waters of the grand seas. "It's like a never ending beach. I do miss the coasts. It was one of the few times my previous owners would let me enjoy myself- they were usually asleep."

She is very reluctant to take a sculpture in her image, but Sirettis eventually relents and opts for a very neutral pose, except for her gaze- she wants it to stare directly at the viewer. The Undines are glad she finally decided on a pose, unlike that weird human...

In between this mission, Sirettis spends her time on the docks of Absalom, watching ships go to and fro from dusk to dawn. Just watching everyone go to and fro, she wonders. This is where I want to be. At the sea's edge, surrounded by those capable of acts of benevolence.

Razethka is deader than dead, though her scales and head are free for the taking should D.Arth want a living room trophy for his estate.

Why, indeed they would look nice on the wall.

D. uses his red energy katana to cut off the dragon's head.
Along with it, he takes 6 scales.

Back at the lodge (since i presume we don't drop off items before that),

"Two-timing, yes. A bother no more, though."

After it all, D. hovers the dragon head and scales to his estate, much to the surprise and shock of some of his retainers, and places it on the edge.
After that, he finds a taxidermist, to properly turn the dragon's head into a piece fit for a wall's display.

He pays the man with a dragon scale.
"Those can be crafted into various things of your choosing."

As the undines try to begin shaping his sculpture, Gallix sighs heavily. "Listen, you don't understand. We're talking about immortalizing the one and only Gorgeous Gallix Granbonne! This isn't the time for making rash decisions!" He pauses for a moment, actually hearing the words he just spoke, then smiles. "Wait a minute! Of course it is. Alright, I'm gonna do some sparring. I want you to tell me the exact moment you want me to stop, and that will be my pose! Ready? Let's go!"

Upon returning to Absalom, Gallix walks around the city with his head puffed out even more than usual. Around his next, he wears a chain with a dragon scale hanging from it as a pendant. He makes his way to some of his favorite bars, soaking up the attention as he retells the story of how he and his companions killed a dragon, and how he almost died in the effort. By the end of the night, he is nearly falling over drunk from all the free drinks he had earned. "Ah, the life of a hero," he says to himself. "I could definitely get used to this!"

Uesugi is quiet on the journey back. The death of the dragon had stirred something in him and he needed time to reflect but here on this different plane of existence there was no chance for that.

During the trip back from the shell to the city Mr Peppers is ever a bit concerned with the water breathing issue. "Are you sure we have enough? If there is a way for me to learn the spell from a water proof scroll or spellbook I'd be happy to help... no really no trouble!" He seems pretty concerned with not being able to breath water, its a surprise really he wasn't a bit more concerned on the trip out. He also does his best to study the items with his magical sight on the way back, but the artifact proves to be too powerful.

Back at Vialesk he enjoys himself at the funeral meal, and does his best to put on a diplomatic and consoling front, greatly helped by his headband's magic. "Brave warriors all of them, we've all accomplished great things on the mission. Yes, we very much look forward to working with the city again in the future if needed."

He also proves to be almost as difficult as Gallix when it comes to his statue, doing his best to make sure his robes are arranged just right, his nose presented at the proper angle, and his ears... appear to be a slightly sensitive subject if not put in just the proper perspective.

Cup is just happy to have saved the day, but when it comes time to put up a statue in Vialesk, she is suddenly shy. “No one has ever done a statue of me before but.... I am just a helper. My team are the real heroes. Oh, and my books too. Maybe we should just do a pile of books for mine?” She starts piling up books on a podium, to remind all undines about the power of reading.

“What do you think?”

Mr Peppers urges Miss Cup to have a statue done "It won't be representative if we have a group of the Red Arm of Absalom statues here remembering this day if you aren't one of those statues."

He thinks for a moment before adding "I like the books though, maybe you should be standing on the stack of tomes... gets your point across and puts you at eye level with the rest of us, makes reasonable sense and observers can take us all in with one sight line."

Considering the size of dragon scales, that's one very large pendant, that Gallix is carrying around his neck.

That's a good point. Maybe it should be a belt buckle instead?

I recall a movie, where 4 scales formed a shield, big enough for a crouching person to hide behind. That should give some idea of the size of one. ;)
