I saw that too. I figured it was just options based on how well or poorly the PCs did. Regina wouldn't want her daughter to be taken out by mooks and will likely fight alongside her if things get hairy.

As far as I can tell, this epic battle would be split into 3 separate combats:

First: against Brontes (Titan) plus his planar ally Tassia. (CR21)

Next: the Dragon Regina (CR22)

Finally: the Princess and the Angel. (CR24)

With the "Veil of Mitra", there will be no teleporting to rest/refresh between battles.

Is that typically how other DMs approached this battle?


So it appears that all 6 parts of this AP are on "backorder" (AKA: out of print).

Mr McBride, is there a chance that anytime soon we will get either A: new printings of the entire AP, or B: a hardcover compilation book (possibly funded through KS)?

I'd take the former, but I'm hoping on the latter.

Grand Lodge

I think he'll be backing off Kickstarters for a while. He's upset too many people right now, and hurt their trust. I'd put money towards it because I want a compilation with errata as well, but he still has to do Books 3-6 of Throne of Night.


He has no one but himself to blame.


Ah, I didn't know about any of that.

Unfortunately, I won't have all of Book 6 done by New Year's. Before that time I have to do some paid freelance work regarding a bestiary monster, and I need to have the first draft of my module written for playtest by the 16th. My health being in question is helping this either. Apologies to anyone that was looking forward to these being done in a timely fashion.

Some thoughts
Another sidequest to add in at high level is the Witch War legacy, I have put this in and added some hints in my prehistory of Talingarde, I intend it as a setup before killing (they may instead mind control/ally or something else) the Queen of the Ice elves which I expect my players to do. I am also looking at the Moonscar and having the players uncover the plot from that as someone elses plan to take over Talingarde, whcih must of course be stopped.
Grumblejack will be a Barbarian (Armoured Hulk) as I thought that fitted him better than fighter. I am considering Cavalier for the Fire Axe but will probably settle for fighter of some sort.
I would probably treat the headband as a one shot version of the Tome of Understanding giving the Fireaxe a +4 to his int , that makes him a veritable Bugbear genius , particularly with your idea of a headband to boost his stats further.
I will also probably mess with his feats a bit giving him Hurtful and Cornugon Smash. Probably loosing Bleeding Critical and Critical Focus.

Grand Lodge

After a very much needed break here's Changes I made to WotW--Book 6, part 3.

And now, I have to rest. As my entry states, I had my cortisone shot yesterday, and it's completely wiped me out, and the pain is just as insane with the shot as it was without. I'm told I have to wait up to a week before it properly kicks in. Ugh.

Moonscar:

My idea for the Moonscar is that it will be the cumulation of the efforts of a different evil force to take control of Talingarde. My campaign has a strong contest between different forces to take control of Talingarde which by the time of the campaign is apparently down to Asmodeus and Mithra. Nocticula has been playing a long and subtle game taking control over various important nobles in Talingarde , and her plan is close to success when the chaos of the Bugbear invasion and the plans of Thorne throw everything into chaos by usurping the power structure. As things start stabilizing as the players take charge I will have Nocticula's agents start abducting the new nobles put in place by the pc's when they notice they can move into the story.
I may foreshadow this by having some people kidnapped or influenced in earlier parts of the story, I am also tempted to send out some Shadow demon assassins to kill the pc's at some point in the timeline. I will probably replace the end boss Succubus antipaladin with an Oracle or Sorceror or something as an Antipaladin loses a lot of effectiveness against a party of evil pc's

Witch War Legacy:

I have written up a prehistory of Talingarde for my campaign which features an ancient war between Demon worshipping Frost Giants and Ice elves which was settled by the Ice elves allying with Baba Yaga. The frozen remains of this war will be found in the North, my players will also be seeking to go to war with the Ice elves because a powerful Devilish servant of the Whore Queen of Illusion (I always forget the name) is trapped beneath the palace as a result of the war with the nameless tyrant and is the source of her immortality.
I also think that after the failure of the moonscar plot agents of Nocticula may bargain with the pc's to trade in the remains of her power and influence on this realm for various things including the Torc of Kostchie which would probably help Nocticula in her ongoing campaign of assassinating rival demon Lords

Grand Lodge

Restless night once more, so I did up a new entry. The next one should be the last for Book 6. For now, Changes I made to WotW--Book 6, part 4.

Grand Lodge

BTW, did anyone figure out just how the Princess ended up with Cha 40? Even with a tome of leadership and influence +5 I can only figure she's got a 38. I'm using the point buy calculator to help with this.

Her base stats are 8, 10, 14, 10, 14, 18
Human +2 to Cha
Sorcerer 20 bonus stats +5 to Cha
Half-dragon template +8 Str, +6 Con, +2 Int, +2 Cha
Headband of Mental Superiority +6

This gets her to 16, 10, 20, 18, 20, 33

Not noted, but let's assume she actually did read a tome of leadership and influence +5 to get her to 38 and Gary just forgot to make note of it. Where's the extra +2 come from to make it 40?

Grand Lodge

So I ended up discussing it with a few people on the Pathfinder page on Facebook, and it's absolutely impossible to get a 40 in a stat without multiple templates, unless you're Azlanti. Guaranteed the princess is not. However, I break down what I would do to keep the stats as-is in the second last entry. I thought it'd the last one, but it went on way longer than I expected. I am beyond tired at the moment. Eyes can barely stay open. Not that, that means much when your arm's in such severe pain. Ugh.

At any rate, Changes I made to WotW--Book 6, part 5. Enjoy.

The only way I can think of without extra templates is that she got a +2 Stat bonus from some other source, there are a couple of points in the adventure when pc's can get odd stat bonuses from interacting with the alters of Asmodeus (The 2nd part of the Ritual to summon Vetra Kali, and after killing Thorne in the temple and maybe in Devaryn)
so I would assume a +2 Sacred bonus from Mithra.

The other possibility is a Variant Half dragon template with a higher charisma boost than normal which a

Incidentally Azlanti human would not help it just gives +2 to all stats as the racial instead of +2 to 1 stat so her charisma still tops out at 38.

Also she knows Wish so she does not need a tome she can just cast wish on herself to boost stats (still costs money though)

It still would have been nice if he'd mentioned where it came from. I agree that Mitra could have given the boost, and it be sacred. The boost the PCs get is an inherent bonus that you'd get from wish or a tome/manual.

There's a houserule I found for how you can get up to 22 for a stat by following the incremental rise of how much each point costs. So if you used that and had the Azlanti variant you could still do it with 25 point buy.
Don't forget that wish is a prerequisite to make the tomes and manuals. Again, it's nice to have it listed under wealth.
If there's a variant dragon template that gives +4 Cha it should lower another stat to compensate.

And I just realized that Regina has resist energy as a 2nd level spell, not first. That's a no-no.

It's times like this that I wish Gary was around.

NPC's don't have to follow the same rules as Player Characters so you don't have to Nit-Pick about every single detail of a character. I've done stuff like given character levels to Ogre Magi to give them more class features and spells and while technically boosting their CR, they aren't overpowered because they don't get AC or equipment bonuses from those extra levels. NPC's are there to be a challenge so I often gloss over game balance to give them stats and abilities they would plausably have.

Actually, yes you do have to conform to the rules for NPCs when you're publishing an adventure. What happens in a home game afterwards is up to the GM. If a GM wants to give an NPC or monster three times the normal Con and maximum hp and then multiple the total by two, but not change the CR, that's their privilege. I've experienced it, and it sucks. However, you can't put that in a published adventure.

This is my first attempt at the princess, I will no doubt customise her and possibly double her hp or something when I have a better idea of what my pc's are going to be like. Currently at 8th level so a long way to go. (At least as they are not Mythic I am not going to have to increase hp by a factor of about 20)

As normal I don't bother much with CR, and as this is the final battle I will be pulling out all the stops to make her a real threat to the PC's. I want at least a 50/50 chance of a TPK

She has made use of the Electic training ability (gained from Guilds , Magic of the Inner Sea) available to my PC's to recover 3 levels of Sorceror casting lost by taking levels in Dragon Disciple. Another possible build taking advantage of that ability would be to take Oracle levels so that she gets Cha to AC from Dex.

She also has a permenant Nereid's grace spell in effect , done via a tattoo which several of my pc's also use so she gets charisma to AC AS A deflection bonus.
I forgot to give her the Bonus Feat Noble Scion of War for Charisma to initiative

Good gravy that makes her super powerful. She might actually be a real threat to the PCs with that. I'll be sure to add that to my entry.

Final entry for Book 6. Changes I made to WotW--Book 6, part 6.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

To sir Kevin-video, I again applaude your endevours!
About the princess, since i'm doing a mythic campaign, i had to be crazy to make a young lady the main "threat" for up to 7 level 20 MR 4-5 characters with templates. After a very long consideration and the insight of how much damage can a few of my character do, i decided i had to start fro a 3.5 great wyrm silver dragon and then start adding up things ...

But now, about the "normal" fight with the princess, i suggest the following:

Ideas for the second battle of the two lords:

1)Have Bronthes Godhammer be a Esilian Titan Prophet (they possess 20th level of cleric casting) and have him with a gated Tulani Eladrin ally - you can find it here (http://thecreaturechronicle.tumblr.com/post/37522659674/azata-tulani). However, use a lot of his spell slots to have him already called a contingent of "Azata knights" and have pumped them - i suggest the Shiere from the same site of the tulani (CR10 Azatas): a troop of those (using the troop template from Pathfinder Adventury Path 100 that soon will be available) would be an impossible challange from any army to overcome, but if the PC can slay the titan, all the Azatas summoned by him will be istantly summoned back to their plane.

2)Have the princess have collected a lot more of "special allies" that can be related to the PCs sins. Surely your villains shall be defined by a lot of atrocities that would have spread their influence outside the island of talingarde. The simplest example would be the murder of the much loved Eiramanthus! The princess could have her army backed up by a contingent of strange creatures from the planes. One of the could be the moon princess Lunaria - mentioned in book 4- that could be a lot of things (lunar dragon? moon giant oracle? moon beast bard? go crazy!). If however you wish to end the conflict, let us skip this.

3)Buff up the "Veil of Mitra" covering the battle scene, so that it may grand additional effects over the princess army. A constant hallow effect keyed with and heroism effects affecting all good creatures should be tematic and enough, but if you feel very evil, grant all the princess troops a lesser spell immunity towards a few range spell, like fireballs or acid clouds.

4)Have the villains, before meeting the princess, be confronted by a beacon of an angel flanked by to other ones: meet Markadian I, II and IV - respectly an Empyrean angel (paragon of dawn), a Tome Archon (the creature catalog, http://thecreaturechronicle.tumblr.com/post/108653325384/archon-tome) and a star Archon, all fully buffed!. These guys are your "add six planetars to TPK", and if you want that, have the princess summon the presence of her ancestrors (wish?) in the first turn of combat. However, there is a catch! Your villains can elude this beings attack if the are quickly to capture and eradicate (earthquake, massive destruction) the hallowed temple of Mitra on the princess side of the army. Without said structure, those beings can "manifest themselves" for only 1d4+1 rounds of combact each before be forced to return in heaven. If your villains simply elude them, they will not waste resources ... but they could look like cowards to their armies, with potencial morale (and might points) loss.

5)Have the princess be a greater half dragon, like mr kevin_video suggested, but instead of a staff of power, give her a staff of the hierophant. I think if Bellinda could choose to absorb spells or be able to true resurrect an ally mid combact - which is tons more epic and deadly for the pcs - would choose the latter. Also, that could be a mitran artifact that the pcs would want for other things.

6) Have Antharia attack the pcs army immediatly! Instead of hiding and wait for the true moment to strike, realizing how much man power the villains (probably) possess, she might show up immediatly while the pcs confront the titan by attacking on the back of their armies and flying direclty towards them. Describe to them the force and the dread such silver dragon causes over their weak (loyal?) minions and how many rounds she'll need to arrive in melee with them WHILE the are fighting the god hammer. This should create tension and make use of that dreadful frightful presence and force the pcs to choose if split or bulk up.

7) Make every miracle worth! Both sides can probably use miracles of heaven and hell. Emphatize the effects of such power, and possibly allow the solar to have used his daily miracle of heaven to "counter"the effect of the first miracle of hell requested by the pcs. Or, if not, utilize them in an awesome way ... like having finally appaer, abeit for only 1 minute, a certain legion of 5000 ghost marthyrs ...

The 'Repent' entry really makes Mitra a sore loser. Kinda like a 'I shot you! Nuh-uh! Uh-huh!' deal.

I should have added that in the comments, I know she does not qualify but I allowed it anyway. Having said that I am thinking that 3 Levels of Lore Oracle , or 1 Level of Lore Oracle and 2 levels of Paladin (for the saves) would be even Cheesier .(And in line with her probable opposition)

Wearing a Bloodline robe to get the Bloodline abilities up to 20th level.

I have had based on another conversation with a Player in my game had another thought for the final battle . I have 5 PC's each with a Cohort he thought it would be interesting to have as the final battle a fight against 5 groups/Individual of opponents spread out across an area so each fight would be 1 of the PC's and a Cohort against a Champion of Good. It sounds interesting

EDIT: The Moon princess sounds like an interesting candidate for the 5 champions of Good

1)Belinda
2)Titan (or instead Sir Richard if he is alive and good)
3)Silver Dragon
4)Solar
5) Moon princess
6) The Azata Lord of the realm(Upgrade Verenellia)

Just posted on the Book 7 thread, and I have to admit that it's such a huge difference doing from the Book 1 to Book 6 to Book 7 threads. This only has four pages, but Book 7 only has 10 comments. Damn.

Gotta say John, I'm looking forward to what you plan to do for the Moon Princess.
My brain's a bit fuzzy so you'll need to remind me on Verenellia.

veranallia This would be the champion of the forces of good and nature. This would be the boss of Brigidh.
The Moon Princess is something I am still thinking about , a 20th level Lunar Oracle Half Celestial Silverblood Werewolf is my first thought, automatically under the full moon so DR10/ and an automatic Heroism, but I really want to come up with a better idea. I may go with a unique celestial similar to a Solar

What do evil Overlords plan on doing with Talingarde

Policy 1-- Sexual Equality, abolish all laws such as primogeniture which discriminate against women. (Why half the pc's are female and will be blessed before they allow discrimination against them). This suprised me as what would usually be considered a good act

I am thinking this one will have no new might gain or loss , unless they do a follow up inviting in female warriors and nobles from the continent. But will increase tax income slightly after a while as more women enter the work force and an influx of women merchants from elsewhere

Policy 2- Set up secret Aasimar farms where they can raise large groups of Aasimar children for ritual sacrifice (Much more in tune with their alignment)

A cost but no might effect unless they are discovered in which case public outrage increases support for the princess (-3 or 4 might)

Bestiary 6 seems to have a nice selection of High CR creatures which could make your pc's lives more interesting.

I am most of the way through book 6 now and I have spotted the flaw in almost all the suggested encounters they are all roughly the same CR as the players level, this is an encounter they are supposed to defeat fairly easily without spending more than about 20% of their resources.

The problem is they are all solo encounters set up so the players will only fight them one at a time, given that my players all have templates like vampire, devil bound , Were tiger and grave knight none of these fights are worthwhile.

I have an upgraded Kraken, and replacement for the Bandersnatch I'll post later . Both of these fought off a full party with full combat buffs for several rounds and the Kraken actually managed to kill a pc , which slightly inconvenienced them.

I am working on upgrading the demonic assassins and providing more assistants to the Princess for the final battle. I have settled on 5 boss type npc's (princess, solar, 3 others) as equivlants of the main PC's and the Dragon to fight 5 cohorts , it should be an epic battle although due to various delays it probably won't be happening until about the 3rd of July.

In political moves they just legalised Same sex marriage, polygamy, polyamory and revised divorce law for fairness, all done via the Asmodean controlled lawyers of course. They are proving fairly wise rulers and it is a good job the princess is not counting on her army to win.

Bestiary 6 seems to have a nice selection of High CR creatures which could make your pc's lives more interesting...

Mr Hawkins, you and i are in the same shoes. Book six it's almost impossible to make any of the encounters a challenge without heavily modifying them, and it's worse if you have allowed mythic in your campaign ...

But, that is our part in this game, and so we challenge ourselves to make this better. On that regard, other than my post from january 14 2016, i would suggest

Ideas for latter book 6:

1) About the demon assassins, why just have a strike of brute force? Demons have powers of seduction and wrath, and they may well try to temp any of your pcs to make them double cross hell. I would suggest the usage of a lilitu demon with a simple template, but any of the queens may well try to attack and tempt a few of them with an offer of chaotic freedom from the bindings of hell. And if that offer is refused, then you can have your climatic fight in the throne room ...

2) From bestiary 6, it's wild hunt time! The characters have killed the bandersnatch? then the lords of the fey will punish them for having disrupted the challenge they created for the Iraens, by hunting any of their minions or lesser cohorts one by one until they reach the pcs, or until the pcs do stop them.

3) about the shoggots, i believe from the strange aeons adventure path they invented a few of lesser versions of them, which by themselves are hardly a challenge (CR 12 i guess), but a TROOP of them may well be more threatening of even their parents if your pcs don't do any crowd control.

4) About the princess allies, now ... if the princess cannot be found due to plot armor, why can't divinations, or the infernal information network, pinpoint any potential ally she my recruit and direct the pcs against such ally? That would allow your pcs to strike war against a few big hitters, removing them from the battle. I would suggest, among them, either a celestial being friend of Eiramanthus or Ara Mathra (planar dragon?) or simply a long term enemy of the devils in Talingarde. The point is allow your character to hinder the princess final rooster against them by being proactive.


This may or may not be relevant to the topic at hand, but I would like to point out that book 6 of Hell's Vengeance has several "troop" statblocks to represent the Iomedan crusaders; which I believe could be reskinned as Mitrans and ported here to represent the Princess' armies during the final battle. There's a CR 14 "Sergeant Troop", and several variants: including a "devilslayer" troop (perfect for the setting in question), field hospital troop (healers), knights inheritor troop (mounted lancers), rassophore troop (spellcasters), siege engineer troop (with ballistas and catapults), and a Hound Archon troop (CR 16).

How about trolling The Princess and actually extending an offer of exchanging diplomats and an honest no backstabbing seat on any council/whatever(Under hellish law of course)

Grand Lodge

I agree that the encounters don't do that much for your PCs, but then they're meant for a standard group of 4 PCs with moderate builds.

I've brought up that the Hell's Vengeance encounters would work well with this scenario, but unfortunately I don't have Bestiary 6 to add in. When it gets here I'll do the same thing I did with Bestiary 5, and make suggestions on my blog.

Regardless of letting the pc's get carried away with power as I have the CR19 Bandersnatch is not a threatening encounter for 4 level 19 pcs. To give them a fight they should find difficult it should be CR 21 or 22, I would say CR23.
For the Ireani hunt, instead of one wild beast the players must face the faerie wrath the Tane.... (one of each)

The Kraken, I new this one would be trivialsed by the spell freedom of movement so I built a Kraken which can ignore freedom of movement my players laughed! or at least started trying harder.

--------------------
Tactics
--------------------
Before Combat Before the kraken begins any combat, she swims deep beneath the water for ten minutes casting control weather calling up a fearsome storm.
During Combat The kraken loves to play with her victims before completing the kill. She will spend three rounds summoning a swarm of dire sharks and then try to grab opponents to drag them into the water and feed them to her pets.

However, if ever reduced to half hit points, this play comes to halt.

She will try to wreck the ship and then once she has her enemies in the water, either leave them to the sharks or pick them off one by one.
Morale The kraken is no fanatic. If reduced to 87 hp (25%) or less, she releases her grapples and flees into the depths. Teuthia will seek out easier hunting grounds and no longer trouble this section of the sea.

The Sisters.
My players will have at least some warning of this attack having made a treaty with Nocticula to warn them of any other demonic interests in their world, hand over her cults , and give them shopping access to her city. They traded this for Kostchies's Torc an item they aquired from a paizo module I ran which gave her half his soul. She considered this a fair deal as she was in no position to take control of Talingarde and a dead demon lord was worth much more to her.
Smiting reversal will be fun for the Antipaladin/Hellknight

During Combat The Two Queen favor one style of combat. They love to fly into melee and slice their opponents appart with a storm of flashing blades.Dissecting the living is their greatest joy. One ability they are loathe to use is summon. Summon means they would owe the demon who comes to their aid favors.

I am thinking about the final battle, at the moment I just have the Good guys and their army standing off against the bad guys and their army , they then fight as either group can slaughter the other's army.

I am thinking of complicating things, perhaps the good guys are also working a magical ritual to bring forth an avatar of Mithra (I would use Ragathial from Bestiary 6 if it worked, tough but probably not invincible)
Now to do that I could either have all the good guys in one place (the battlefield) or spread across the country at different ritual sights requiring my pc's to split up to face them.

At the same time I gave my pc's an artifact similar to the Sihedron(from the AP) I am thinking that the linkages of this may allow the pc's to switch who is in which of the sub fights on a round by round basis.
Splitting everyone up also has consequences for the 2 Bards as they won't be able to provide support to the rest of their groups (in this case I'll also have to make sure the Good guy bard can fight and is less of a pure support character).

Any idea's or thoughts on any of this?

Well, very much depends by what's your pcs endgame, since the final threath should reflect it. Do they intend to do the THING that was proposed in book 7 or they simply wish to rule all Talingarde?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

They plan on Talingarde, then the world, then possibly other worlds their is no limit to their ambition.
So that option does not make sense in their terms so I have not offered it

Then the better question is "how much is relevant the final battle". If you wish the battle is actually relevant, in the sense that the pcs may loose any hold they have over the nation of their armies are broken and lost, then you should make so they cannot, or should not leave the battlefield and actually strategize, wasting many big guns over the enemies troops well before any of the good guys big hitters show themselves.

If the "final battle" is a forethought, then lets get crazy and put a bit of mythology in there: why don't actually have the battle a distraction and the princess plan the conjuring of Mithra throught a reversal of a certain ritual from book 7? Have her and her trusted allies spread all over Talingarde's map, trying to "reverse" or "redeem" the pcs actions by using either miracles or some kind of great actions that weakens the asmodean's hold over the nation, allowing Mithra to manifest his direct influence over the island.

About the sihedron copy, giving your characters free things, at this level, is just a waste since they are probably more rich and well armed than a little nation. I would suggest to make instead a "minion link" to a certain, important npc of the campaign that will suffer any lethal blow they might receive in their place by some kind of ancient, evil and not necessarily willing blood soul magic. This allows you to have relevant a fey npcs even in this battle of the gods, and allows you to go all out from round 1.

About Mithra, instead of having him show up, why not summon the fabled army of 5000 ghost martyrs, maybe headed by a relevant enemy npc now in holy ghost form. I like the image of the princess hidden in the cathedral of Valtaerna, restoring it with her bare hands while the Pcs look for her everywhere else. If the good guys are not stopped in their rituals, your overlords will face an army that cannot be stopped by any physical means. The pcs may hold it, but all the rest cannot.

But if you want a battle with Mithra themselves, then have him/her/it BE the princess, the dragon and the solar through the form of a Mythic Ascention Spell that grants hour final bosses a few extra power with 1 or 2 temporary mythic tiers. Mithra has them exalted, but if they die, then mithra loses power over the realms and will have his influence broken forever, a last gamble that may damn him. This allows you to giving more worth to the princess and her entourage.

I gave them the Sihedron a while ago, each of the shards was linked to a powerful devil sent by Asmodeus to prepare the way (One of them was Tiadora) they collected the shards along with the devils true names and completed the collection when they Killed Thorne.

I have no great commitment to the battle, particularly because my players have been excellent at building their strength, the battle will be one sided. The only thing which could turn the tide would be the princess and her companions joining the battle without the pc's as a counterbalance.

I want to make sure the final battle is as epic as possible. I quite like the idea of having it take place across multiple locations so that the pc's have to split up to fight the battle. The summoning ritual for an avatar of Mithra was largely meant as a reason for that splitting up, the Ghost Martyr's would be an alternative . However the Mithra Avatar would be something they could fight if they won part of the battle.
At the moment I have the Dragon, the princess, The Moon Prince, the Solar , the Spirit of the Tiger (the Caer Brye tribes all follow totem animals and the pc's have despoiled these and they get the spirit of the tiger in the face in return), The Scion of Mithra (a Mithran War priest, I may replace him with the high inquisitor). The pc's have a Sorceress (the Queen), a bard/swashbuckler, an Oracle, an Antipaladin , a Hunter and 5 cohorts.
I quite like the idea of the Dragon and 5 of the pc's fighting it out while the other 5 have to scatter to face the 5 npc's at ritual sights , possibly using the Sihedron for rapid switching pc's between encounters.
The idea of linking the ritual sights to critical locations from parts 1-5 appeals to me. The Cathedral, the Palace, (not sure what would be appropriate for book 5), the manor house they were recruited in, possibly the ruins of the Daemon shrine

The idea of linking the ritual sights to critical locations from parts 1-5 appeals to me. The Cathedral, the Palace, (not sure what would be appropriate for book 5), the manor house they were recruited in, possibly the ruins of the Daemon shrine

For the locations, since it's gonna be a fight for the right of Mithra to stay on the island, I think these places should all be of historic importance, for example:

1) the Vale, were Macarius created the cult
2) the Capital, were the first cathedral was built
3) the temple built on the battlefield of the two lords, were the Victor won
4) a spot in Ghastenhall were the asmodean cathedral was destroyed
5) the shrine were the princess prayed for Mithra in book 5

Surely, I believe those location should no be told to the Pc, but have them look for them either by using uber magic or a little reasoning. You could also have a few false lead, like having a bunch of lesser angels appear somewhere near other important mithran locations, or over the horn. Have the pcs to actually risk to waste resources!

Now, since one of the main point of this battle is to defeat the princess in front of any force that may ever think to oppose the Pcs, she's not gonna go around teleporting through the island, and the same is for her heavy hitters: they are gonna stay.

However, i can well image she's got a lot of followers (adventurers from the inner sea region) ready to implement her ritual while she directs the Pcs attention or herself. I would see them as few groups of three to four level 14-15 characters (or any combination of similar power), which are enough for 2/3 or your pcs cohorts or for 1 cohort and 1 pc. The funny part is that you can use old Pcs of your players and have them cameo in this other locations, helping out the mithran inquisition (just put a 15 level inquisitor inside the group and have him work the ritual with the other characters have to defend him).

Since your characters possess a sihedron like artifact, the princess should have something akin, since she's not a Mary Sue but the "ultimate opponent" they must face to win the battle. So, i would suggest this: following Adventure path 108 from hell's vengeance, have the princess have this "heirloom pendant of Darius" or something similar, and have linked to the gems of said items the names of the five precedent kings. By the grace of mithra, each of these guys is gonna appear as an angelic presence to defend her. But each of these guys is actually linked to one of these sites, and by having the ritual stopped there the ally cannot be summoned.

My philosophy here is that, once your villains will take a glance on the princess, they will probably rush for her on the battlefield, and shall find their path blocked by the titan, the solar and hungry mama dragon. After (and if) they are able to deal with those enemies, they'll try to go 5 to 1 against her only for her to put a 6 to 1 by this ring. However, if they realize/ are told of the ritual, and how this ritual is making stronger the power of the veil over the battle, they might actually strategize and try to halt this ritual.

The point is how much are they gonna wait for the final confrontation with the princess, how many trips shall they take and if the people send to stop the rituals are powerful enough to oppose the forces in there. At this level, it's time to put the maximum level of difficulty, and if your pcs don't strategize a bit or use their uber magics to get some kind of overview of the battle and the effects of their actions or inactions, they'll get into the trap the princess and her mother weaved against them for 3 years.

If they wait till the last moment, the might of the princess and her allies will momentarily turn the tide of the battle, but your villains will get the chance to fight the princess without any more backup. If they just rush, they'll get an hard wall to the face. if they send people random to stop the rituals, without having at least 1 pc, they might also loose one of their seasoned minions.
[for an example, if there are no pics, 2 cohorts = 4 level 15 enemies; so 3 cohorts it's a total victory, 2 it's a hard fight (30% chances one of the cohorts gets down), 1 gets slaughtered but can (60%) stall or stop that ritual point nevertheless]

I hope my suggestions shall be useful

I am still pondering the final battle. My campaign goes into a 4-6 week pause while I am medically indisposed so I will finalise it during this gap and then when I return so does the princess.

The Two sisters attacked last session , and killed each other when the sorceress got a lucky Dominate monster through one of them's defenses.

Then the Hadean Signet had it's fun and a Hekontires ripped it's way in. Causing the players to expend 1 Miracle, 3 wishes and a limited wish to banish it. The Hekontires really freaked them out so it was an excellent choice for a terror from the depths of time

Finally finished, the 4-6 week pause turned into about 5 months. The final battle was interesting, it was close in places but overall I made one mistake and one of the fights was too one sided in favour of the players (one spell Dimensional blade caused a lot of that)

Anthea Regina the Dragon faced off against Oswyn the 20th level Oracle, Grumblejack a Half fiendish Barbarian (lvl 18 equivalant), a vampiric War priest(unarmed version), a Weretiger Warpriest and a Vishknya Vivisectionist Alchemist (did not do much due to particulate form blocking all precision damage). The Dragon was the weak spot , action economy killed it, I Should have given it some mythic abilities or bodyguards. When she went down the reinforcements doomed the other good guys

The Princess facing off against Marcus a 20th Level Antipaladin/Hellknight Grave knight, this was largely a standoff as the princes failed to really nail him but moved around enough so he could not nail her.

The Solar facing off against Syrah the Queen of Talingarde an abomination with 20th level sorceror casting and some levels of Oracle and Diabolist. Using These she had an AC of somethign so ungodly the Solar could hardly hit her, she kept nailing it with maximised wracking rays which it had to heal so the fight was a lockdown.

The Champion of Mithra a 20th level warpriest vs Appolonius Bard 15/Swashbuckler 5 vampire, nearly went badly for appolonius but he got some Irresisitable dance spells and then a Euphoric peace through spell resistance and kept it as a draw.

The Tiger spirit totem of the Caer Brie a 20th level Ranger Animal Lord vs Gloine a 20th level pet less hunter. He was ripping her to pieces aided by being immune to her favoured named bullet spell (Greater spell immunity comunal all off the heroes were immune to this and a few other spells, the pc's did the same thing). However she got off a greater dispel magic and luckily dropped the Immunity, and particulate form and then managed to nail him with named bullet arrows, killing him.

The Moon King who could either be a 10th level bard/10th level Ahavic dancer this form was so lethal to the undead none of the undead pc's dared face him, his other form was a level 2 paladin/18th level Blood rager in this form he faced an 18th level wizard who was losing but kept him busy long enough for help to come.

The battle ended and the Dark sun rose over talingarde as Syrah sacrificed the heart of the Solar to Ardad Lili and the princess died from an arrow to the face.
A New reign of darkness spreads over Talingarde, the world and eventually other worlds.

Great fun and a great campaign

Tactics
--------------------
Before Combat Before the final battle, the solar will have talked extensively with Bellinda about all she knows about our villains.

Between that consultation and divine inspiration straight from Mitra, you can assume that Phaethysa knows your PCs as well as you do. Thus, you should feel free to tinker with her spell list to make sure she is ready for whatever tricks the PCs most commonly use. She will use greater communal spell immunity to resist any favorite or signature spells of the PCs.

Given time to prepare the solar will cast greater communal spell immunity (choose five spells; 200 minutes divided amongst allies), resist energy (sonic; lasts for 200 minutes), death ward (20 minutes) and holy aura (20 rounds) on itself before any battle.
During Combat The solar is an incredibly versatile, powerful combatant.

With so many spells and spell-like abilities at her disposal there is almost no tactic which this powerful celestial could not adopt if it so chose. This is an enemy you should sit down and take a moment to both research and tailor to your PCs. The time you spend will make the final fight all the more epic and clmactic.

The solar generally prefers to keep to the air and use barrages of slaying arrows plus its massive spell compliment to destroy its foes. In particular, it will target slaying arrows preferentially at spellcasters, as it realizes they are likely to be more susceptible to a DC 20 Fortitude save and the 50 points of damage if they fail.

If melee combat looks likely, the solar will sacrifice an action to activate its greatsword's dancing ability. It will then let the sword fight as it uses its spell array to compliment the damage the greatsword can deal.

Trying to mob the solar with lesser minions is a futile gesture. The solar simply flies above such a mob and casts storm of vengeance.

For ten rounds, the solar will destroy almost anything within a 360 ft. radius.

Do not forget that Phaethysa has epic damage resistance. In the entire campaign, the PCs will only encounter two items that can potentially grant them the epic tag. A fully assembled Helbrandr should count as epic against this angel and if the PCs managed to enhance the Hadean Signet, it will grant them epic attacks.

If this mighty angel has a weakness it is this - the solar is perhaps too quick to aid its allies. When it should be focusing on laying its foes low, it will instead take an action to cast spells like mass hea and greater dispel magic to save the lives and alleviate the suffering of its allies. Clever opponents could use this to their advantage, threatening allies of Phaethysa and thus causing the angel to waste actions.

Fundamentally, you can think of Phaethysa as a divine assassin. She has been sent to this plane with only one mission - ensure that Talingarde does not fall into Asmodean hands. What has become so clear to Mitra is that the only way to ensure this is to destroy the Nine Knots once and for all. Once broken and sent to hell will Talingarde be free of their blight
Morale Phaethysa is completely dedicated to her mission here upon the prime material plane. She will not rest until the will of Mitra is done and she is fearless in the face of evil. She will only retreat temporarily to save a comrade and then only long enough to ensure that they are safe. Phaethysa otherwise fights to the death.

Her mission is too critical to deserve anything less.
