Wow, the Mirrors of Opposition really tore up your party. My party was smart and as soon as the rogue peeking around the corner triggered the creation of his doubles, they all closed their eyes until they managed to break the mirrors.

What is this talk of carefulness and rogues? One should just send the 2 people least likely to get hurt into all of the possible traps. The paladin also made sure I added in all of the bonus and resistances that he usually forgets about, because "hard mode"


Name of PC: Zukuto
Class/Level: 11 Ninja
Adventure: Fortress of the Stone Giants
Catalyst: an extra fiesty kobold

Story
the party chased after the kobold, ignoring the necklace she dropped in flight. as she turned and lobbed a pearl from the necklace of Fireballs at the group (resulting in a chain reaction), Zukuto, with 3 hp remaining from the prior fight, could not withstand the 22d6 fire damage.
He used his hero points to cheat death.


Name of PC: Davosk
Class/Level: Wizard 7
Adventure: Skinsaw Murders
Catalyst: Medusa’s Mask

Story:

The Heroes had been making short work of the Shadowclock tower up until they met the Golden Lady at top of the tower. The monk, Elron, realized that he could not climb the stairs while enlarged and changed his tactics accordingly. He climbed the outside of the tower, scaling it faster than the rest of the party could climb the stairs! Egorian, the paladin, led the way up the stairs while Davosk, the wizard, flew by his shoulder. Using message, the three of them timed their arrival to be simultaneous with the other three party members spaced appropriately and ready behind them. Mosali, the bard, launched into a story of a hero’s epic conquest over a greater demonic evil as her compatriots led the way into the final room.

Egorian, Elron, and Davosk bore witness to a ritual in its final stages. A woman strapped down to an onyx alter with a succubus and two Alu demons leading two cultists in prayer. The succubus was wearing golden armor and flying above the ritual through smoke and incense. Serena went first with a 27 on initiative, dashed into the room and cut down one of the Alu demons with a surprise attack. Much to her surprise, her elven curved blade passed straight through the demon with no resistance. She could not believe her eyes as the demon still stood before her. Davosk himself did not believe it either, the succubus was still there!

At this point, the true Golden Lady revealed herself and opened up on Egorian the Paladin of Sarenrae. Her spear struck him and he felt a sense of sadness and nausea overcome him. From here, chaos broke out. Davosk let loose a powerful fireball, which he deftly converted into an iceball. Mosali attempted to confuse the demons, cultists and the true Golden Lady causing a cultist to begin blabbering in a strange language.

After being struck by the iceball the Golden Lady turned her attention to the flying Davosk. The buildings below him seemed toy like and dizzyingly far away. The bottom of the massive Irespire seemed nearly within touch, only thirty feet above his head. The gem in the Golden Lady’s crown glowed bright green and she pointed a finger at him as she shouted a single word in the language of magic. Davosk heard it clearly. “STONE!” He looked down in horror as his fingertips stiffened and became cracked. He raised his hands to his wide eyes as his green skin turned a dark grey, the color of a weather beaten statue. He knew he had failed this test. He knew he was succumbing to the magic of the spell and with the drop below him that he was all but dead. The Golden Lady watched him with a smug smile.

With a cry of rage, anguish and fear Davosk reached deep inside himself and defied the spell that had taken root within him. He steeled his mind and forced the stony magic from his body. He had never heard of such a thing in his studies. He did not know how exactly he pulled it off. All he knew was that he lived and that the Golden Lady was going to die.

To be continued???

Davosk failed his save against the magic within the Golden Lady’s crown. Fortunately, he had a hero point which he used to save his life. Without that Hero Point, he would be a scattering of smashed stone as he took 20d6 fall damage. Even worse would be the mess that he would leave behind after he reverted to flesh in 1 minute’s time.

We were not able to finish the fight last session. So far, two Hero Points have been burned. The second prevented a faceless stalker crit from dropping Elron unconscious. The Heroes have healed up and harried the golden lady as she tried to heal up. The expectation is that she is preparing to attack again.

Name of PC: Grungar
Class/Level: Shaman 6
Adventure: Skinsaw Murders
Catalyst: Slime and Snails or Puppy Dog's Tails

Story:
On their way to Magnimar the party did not expect the GM to design a not so random encounter as a homage to David Bowie and Alan Rickman. So, near the end of their first day of travelling south, during particular bad weather that included thunder and lightning, they found a destroyed small Goblin village. Of course only the tails of a bunch of puppys, nailed near the nearest tree, made them realize that this village was once inhabited by Gobbos. A huge trail of slime led the to the source of the destruction: A giant slug, slowly making it's way to the swamps nearby.
While they were still planing their attack, a voice behind a tree warned them to not hurt 'Snaily, his friend!', but to late. A readied action made little to none damage to the Giant Slug, but enough for Grabthar, a mad ce cleric/sorcerer who escaped Habe's months ago, to attack them and to alert the Slug.
While the Slug very slowly crept into reach for its acid vomit attack, Grabthar fought bravely with his spells as well as his Warhammer. Long enough for his friend 'Snaily' to crit the Shaman and make 76 damage.
The acid burned through his upper body as he dropped dead. Luckily, the rest of the party defeated Grabthar and the slug soon after that and they found out that Grabthar's Hammer was a unique item that had a couple of charges of Ressurrection left


Name of PC: Elron
Class/Level: Monk of the Lotus 7
Adventure: Skinsaw Murders
Catalyst: 98 damage in one round.

Story:

Picking up where Davosk's story ends.

The Heroes battled on against Xanesha despite watching their wizard nearly plummet to his death. After a couple rounds they had all but destroyed her mirror images and had her surrounded. Elron (monk) and Egorian (sword and board paladin with sheild bash) where both enlarged to mitigate her reach advantage and it was beginning to show.

Xanesha decided to retreat and regroup. She climbed out of the tower and onto the roof where she turned invisible. Mosali (bard) craftily hit her with glitterdust. Not wanting to waste her advantage Xanesha decided to retreat temporarily and heal up. After failing a save against a second glitter dust, being harassed by summoned eagles and peppering arrow fire from the stairs leading up the tower.... Xanesha finally waited out the glitterdust. The Heroes prepared for the upcoming attack by spreading out with the still enlarged Elron in the middle of the tower.

Serena was hiding in the pillows with her bow out when she saw a blurred shape pass right next to her hiding place. Xanesha returned! Serena's arrow missed but was able to at least show her compatriots where the Lamia would strike from.

Xanesha's spear found the flatfooted Elron once for a maximum damage softening hit and again for a critical that pierced his chest, shredding his insides......

or would have if it where not for the quick reactions of Serena, standing adjacent, and the flatfooted Sorez, standing some distance away, who both lept forward and yanked Elron away from what would have been a killing blow! Xanesha's spear still slammed into Elron's bicep, nearly severing it. He stood before her horribly injured and bleeding profusely, but alive.

Although it did not kill him, Elron still took two maximum damage hits (25 each) which left him at 1 HP. Sorez and Serena both burned Hero Points to save Elron's life.


Name of Pc: Vale
Class/Level: Ranger 10
Adventure: Fortress of the Stone Giants
Catalyst: Not flying high enough while shooting at 2 advanced stone giants.

The party was defending Sandpoint from the Stone Giants. Vale wanted to be near enough to a couple of stone giants so he would have good aim, but was too far away to both close-in AND fly high enough so the giants could not reach him. The giants charged at him, and he was dropped easily to the floor.

Name of PC: Amadis
Class/Level: Inquisitor 10
Adventure: Fortress of the Stone Giants (King of the Storval Stairs)
Catalyst: Trying to heal a party member's companion.

On their way to the Storval Plateau, the party met their old friend the druid Davor, who asked them to help defend the Storval Stairs until a Pathfinder Society caravan comes through. After cleaning the stairs from the hill giants and harpies that inhabited it, the party made camp at the bottom of the stairs. On the second night they were attacked by some hill giants and Lucrecia, riding a huge hill giant cleric. While the party were busy fighting the mooks, Lucrecia, well familiar with the party's strengths and weaknesses cast two dismissal spells on the summoner's eidolon, removing the party's meat shield and main damage perpetrator. Next, the hill giant cleric attacked Davor's tiger companion Ugly, and dropped him dying on the floor. Amadis ran to Ugly in order to revive him, but failed to assess the situation correctly and allowed the cleric to make multiple attacks against him, turning him into pulp. All the party could do was teleport away with his body in order to regroup.
