Beautiful view off the back porch: I'm tempted to post it. Unfortunately the house is starting to fall apart, so I think we'll have to knock it down and rebuild.
Would people be okay if we put the Kingdom on hold? We can retroactively do it when things settle down.
Otherwise I might need to put the game on pause till things settle down.
As for Christmas: well, belated it might be, but a SHINY NEW LEVEL for all of you!
So: Who is still here?
Yeah, you could use a Janni to get things brought across. That gets round Planar Binding's one task restriction.
A deal with a Mercane is very clever, and would let you set up a much better trade route, albeit one only interested in magical items. Which, given all of you can craft, could payoff big-time.
Yeah, Lyres and stuff are pretty good.
I'm happy for Lyre & summoned temporary labour to wipe off labour cost entirely, even with one 'forever lyre'.
Sure, there are probably spells or items that'd get you around some of this. I'm happy to adjudicate it on a case by case basis. If you can find/build a gem of thought-storing and all the Runelords empty their heads into it I would probably ignore the furnishings & operation cost of a Library.
I like the idea of monuments and stuff being free, by the way. If this is the new Thassilon why shouldn't you do cheap stuff like carve the heads of the Runelords into some nearby mountain? But you still need commoners to run the farm, and the smithy, and the...
I find myself feeling dread at what is to come.
 We're about midway through book 2. I was planning to use about half of it. There is still exploration to do, though. Minions?
Nothing to write home about; looks like she was ransacking her victims. Also looks like she didn't know she had magical items in her horde.
Quick note: The herbal collection is in a box hidden inside a small extradimensional space in a mirror that is built into the wall. Sadly there is no way to get into it without breaking the enchantment. Will take you a while to find it and confirm that, but given you've driven the Fey off that's not a problem.
Sounds like a 60s sitcom: "Thanksgiving with the Runelords!"
"Wait Grey, did your servants prepare this?" (Laugh track)
"Forsten, do you want to carve the turkey?" "Great. Now we need a new turkey... and a new table..."
"Denat: Can you conjure something up?" "Damnit man, that's not a turkey!"
"Let us Pray..." "NO ANGLON! STOP HEALING THE DINNER!"
"This desert is great Ronald, are you sure it's fat free?" "I'm pretty sure illusory desert is EVERYTHING free..."
Hmmm - the defining thing for this group is their wanting to kill humans.
Holding off posting in case I'm missing something.
Given this check is realistically probably going to represent marching through a bunch of other Fey, how about we assume "The Author" takes some liberties...
So who is going to be making the primary intimidate check?
And yeah, she was overconfident about being able to go home. With an init that can hit forty, decent perceptions and an SU teleport power and a great AC (thanks to mythic dodge), it seemed like she would be.
Forsten's would suggest giving the fey the following choice/ultimatum (after subduing them and securing the shinies) "We can help you to leave the surrounding lands peacefully (as they will soon be part of our kingdom) and go be someone else's problem, or you can hang around here until you inevitably break some law, and we hunt you down and kill you like your mistress."
They're a bit less dangerous when not augmented by a 7th tier mythic marshal, that's for sure.Is this the plan?
Happy to talk to Melianse (she's basically still there, just hiding).
So: you guys can follow the map through the keep, presumably fighting as you go.
Share Spells: The wizard may cast a spell with a target of “You” on his familiar (as a touch spell) instead of on himself. A wizard may cast spells on his familiar even if the spells do not normally affect creatures of the familiar's type (magical beast).
@Grey: Do you have wording or something for the Familiar->Wizard spell casting?
Between the three maps it is possible to determine that her greatest treasure is in her room in the ruined keep. Second floor. But the widest ranging map shows another treasure man, many miles away
ie another hex not near this one, not in your territory
A surge of wild, fey Evil sweeps over Anglon. Any lesser man, any mere mortal, might have been struck down by such raw hatred.
Moments later Grey acts, and a few moments later holds a map and a gem shining brightly
knowledge:religion dc 17: 1d6d6d6d6 ⇒ (2, 2, 1, 2, 5, 1, 5, 1, 2, 2, 1, 2, 4, 5, 2, 6, 5, 3, 6, 3, 4, 2, 2, 6, 5, 6, 1, 5, 5, 1, 3, 5, 2, 5) = 112
Remember that you weren't here to kill her, but rob her.
What scale is the map? Nearby, valley or local.
Sorry about the anticlimactic. Like I said, once you got her out here away from all her minions this was going to be about whether she got away before you killed her. She was overconfident about her crazy high initiative and at-will SLA plane shift.
The Master in Grey wrote:
Yeah - wording as per FAQ (so standard action).
Also: You were going to have your familiar cast true strike on you, right? Presumably using "Share Spells" to get around the "you" target? I think Share Spells is one way, but am happy to listen to arguments to the contrary.
Now: Clever use of the Soul Gem: stops her getting reincarnated! Has a Will save if she's dying though. Were you waiting for someone to kill her first? Otherwise is the DC > 20?
stupid mythic prayer!!@!!
save your true strikes, Grey - see discussion. Plus, you'd hit a grappled, tripped and entangled target anyway.
She's at negative. Do you kill her? How? Remember that mythic critters take a loooooot of killing.
The Fey sidesteps the enervate ray, moving with an unearthly dexterity that no human could hope to duplicate
I'm going to assume the plan was to give Ronald a clear line of fire and so he goes before the Grey Terror and Horror grant cover bonuses? In which case Ronald's Ray just hit.
Mythic Potent Surge
Only one grappler rolls. The other aids for +2 (and makes it harder to escape)
Mythic point for a second standard action
Terror writ on her face she turns to the monstrous Forsten
"Save me!" she begs
DC 20 Suggestion
cast defensively: 1d20 + 17 ⇒ (17) + 17 = 34
There\not there as in Plane Shift.
Perhaps thirty seconds pass after the Mite vanishes. Tiressia becomes increasingly nervous
The world seems to warp, and suddenly she is there, dancing towards Forsten.
knowledge:planes dc 20:
She seems to have rent the barrier between this world and the First. Possibly some sort of teleportation effect?
With your sight active you can see through some of the illusions of this world. She - is not here. Then she is. Moderate Conjuration effect
X is 9, remember this for spell duration
does it work?: 1d20 - 1 + 3 ⇒ (15) - 1 + 3 = 17 yes, it does!
is she surprised?: 1d20 + 17 - 2 ⇒ (8) + 17 - 2 = 23
initiative: 1d20 + 11 ⇒ (11) + 11 = 22
Mythic Prayer +2 luck to attack, weapon damage, saves and skills
Ronald, Grey, Horror and Anglon all have surprise. Standard actions please gentlemen. She won initiative, so after that she is up.
Can I get a 'go' from everyone when they are happy with the prep I've got written up?
remembering the trick is going to be stopping her getting away, I think we're good to go.
somehwere in here there are those of you (like Anglon) casting other spells. Who is casting what, and when, before we roll for initiative?
Okay, list spells and targets please.
I guess my issue is that if I was playing my fun would be in coming up with creative ways to use spells and abilities, which can take a bit of talking.
