The Pate will move and attempt another shot (his last charge) with his wand of Hold Person on Xaven. The ring of fire was a great move to get them stopped, but that crazy halfling may still do something. We need to get him stunned, enchanted, or immobilized in some way and this time strip him of everything.
-Uh oh - I was afraid this was coming. Now I have to settle a difficult rules interpretation:
Does a wall of fire block line of sight?
A "wall" typically does, but this isn't a typical wall.
The effect of the spell is:
Opaque sheet of flame up to 20 ft. long/level or a ring of fire with a radius of up to 5 ft./two levels; either form 20 ft. high.
Does opaque mean line of sight is blocked? Is the ring opaque, or just the sheet?
I am going to send this on to my rules gurus and get us a blind ruling. They won't know the situation or who benefits. If they conclude its unclear, as they sometimes do, I'll flip a Paizo dice roller coin.
