Are we back to Tebati? I don't like to assume since we're obviously in over our heads at the moment and I'm expecting all kinds of arcane stuff to blow up in our faces....
Should have listened to the enchantress! ;P
We're over to me botting Kieran I believe, when I get a chance to update :).
Didn't Kieran throw his dagger regardless of his shrunkenness, in round 1? Ansha's at the bottom of the order, so it should probably be Tebati again at the top of round 2.
Ah, the temptation to Color Spray her own party...
Not that I see her being so into elven solidarity that she'd actually stick her own neck out to help an elf against her own friends, much as she may hate her friends at the moment. ;P
She'll probably hate herself later for not trying to talk Zesaste into a peaceful solution herself.
What language are you using for Sylvan?
Well, there was a language translator for a bunch of D&D languages that I linked a few pages ago in this OOC thread, but I tried to access it a day or two ago and the site no longer exists. So...I just threw together gibberish that had lots of sibilant sounds in it.
I was actually mid-reply when you deleted it, which confused me for a moment. Anyway, I was counting one in the wrong direction with my previous diagram about initiative order. But I had been assuming that the dog acted immediately, and since it arrived with the completion of the spell just prior to the caster's next action, I figured that meant that it arrived just before the caster and acted then.

...the magic holding the brave summoned canine to the jungle frayed and crumbled; the dog disappearing from the Material plane with nary a trace.
Since Summon Monster is a full-round cast, shouldn't the dog still be in existence until just before her action on round 4 (since it appeared just before her action on round 2)? I assume it doesn't get a third action just before it vanishes, but it would still provide flanking for one last round.
As the trail entered darkening forest Jakob plucks a small round red berry from a hanging vine. With a whisper of sylvan the berry begins to glow. Looking rather sheepish Jakob closes his hand around the fruit shuttering the light.
To answer your in-thread question, AK, it does look like Jakob has a light source.
She would have thrown a Color Spray in his face, but apparently she can't use spells with Somatic components while grappled. By the way, were we still ignoring material components or do I need to look again at wasting a feat on Eschew Materials?
If only I had seen the following way back when Ansha was being man-handled:

The above is a legacy of the 3E grapple rules. With PFRPG redefining grapple as "I have your arm, not your whole body," the above doesn't make sense, and it was only present in one part of the Core Rulebook (in the Concentration section, I think). So it's being removed in errata: the "no somatic components while you're grappled" rule shouldn't be in the book.
We were taken last night, though the Gnolls took us blindfolded and marched us through the night. I believe coins and plunder changed hands, but we were mostly kept senseless... the 3rd of Gozran eh... Almost a month since we were taken.
Either Balthus is confused, or I am. Which one was it, a night or a month? ;P

If you find yourself describing a potential PC as "buxom" or "curvy" or "sensuous," ask yourself if you have any male PCs whose genitalia you feel the need to qualify in the descriptive text; if not, you don't need to be specific about the female body either. It's squicky.
I've been thinking of drawing portraits of the group off and on since the game started, but, you know, it's actually really hard for me to draw portraits of Tebati, Jakob or, really, any of the rest of the group without a more detailed description of what they look like ("muscular" and "wiry" as well as "lithe" and "sensuous") and what they're wearing. (I'm half-tempted to have Tebati dressed in National Geographic-style African garb, i.e. a skirt and those glass beads around her neck, and that's it.) I guess I just need direction or I don't even know where to start. References help a lot, too. Most of my drawings would probably be even more askew without them....
Also, I had thought of coming up with a character concept for your game, Joana, but up until I was reading a thread on cleric-hate yesterday, I couldn't think of anything to play. (Now I think the next character I want to play is a cleric of Desna.)
