I love this. Except Hoist the Colors, but even it's name I'll concede is oozing coolness.

I agree with Oceanshieldwold. Thematic and mechanical success in my eyes, though it's possible this could have been better tied to an Inquisitor > Monk.

Speaking to likelihood, the Shackles is the pirate haven in Golarion, and the highest level Cleric of Besmara listed in the Isles of the Shackles book is 11th level. That's...a bit unlikely, too, isn't it? You'd certainly expect a badder, more impressive, Cleric than that to be available somewhere in the area, here in her very domain. .

Besmara is a young goddess with few clergy. It does not surprise me that her most mighty priest is "merely" a legend (11th level). On the other hand as a goddess that is certainly pro-deception, it also wouldn't surprise me if her more powerful servants keep themselves out of the public eye.

A somewhat unrelated thought since its an island *port* metropolis, the person who casts 8th level spells, while statistically certain to exist in such a place at any give, may not be the same person twice in two days. Rather that slot could be filled with a parade of foreigners, whose location and desired prices are ever-shifting.

The way I see it, Mok did absolutely nothing "wrong". He read no modules in advance and deduced a puzzle.

He uses the same kind of reasoning that a player uses in order to pick up on an adventure hook. The same kind of reasoning that ultimately allows for non-sandbox modules to run.

As a community, I think we often undervalue the positive aspects of metagaming. The term itself is anathema and emotionally charged.

But responsibly (read: without cheating) steering oneself in a way that makes the game more engaging is a good thing right?
