So, my human hunting ranger was quite logically hiding in the quickbeam when the time came to gun down the aspis consortium thugs (with nonlethal).

While *I* knew there was bad stuff coming in the park.... Colm most certainly didn't.

Let me tell ya, that was a puckery moment of not spoilering what was about to happen to my character....

Grand Lodge ***** Venture-Lieutenant, California—Los Angeles (Inland Empire)

According the description of the extraplanar subtype (http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/monsters/creatureTypes.html#_extraplana r-subtype) in the bestiary, creatures on transitive planes like the ethereal plans are not extraplanar.

Wouldn't this mean dismissal wouldn't work on them in the ethereal plane?

Edit: never mind, I didn't see Kestler's spoiler.

Grand Lodge ***** Venture-Captain, Illinois—Decatur aka TwilightKnight

In reviewing the tier 8-9 version for Galdron, he has holy smite as a 4th level spell. Is that an error and supposed to be unholy blight?

Taldor *****

Man-o-man did I have a fun time running this one. My table consisted of a mainly 8 or 9 level characters. A conjuring wizard, a tetori monk, a paladin, a summoner, and a 5 gunslinger/rogue. So we played tier 8-9.

Started off pretty routinely. They entered the market and spoke with Zeeva. The gunslinger had actually ran Golden Serpent in a slot previously. They preceded to get missions out of the way and wait for the Aspis. Combat started with Narris starting combat by dropping the monk in a pit. After a few rounds they defeated the sorcerer and got the mooks to retreat. After a round of actions they noticed the chanting, and the fruit veggies stands start to shake. The party decided to just back up and get Zeeva to safety since they had absolutely no idea what was going on. They party ended up bringing the shambling mounds out into the street, they didn't want to destroy the market. After alot of summons and a flying invisible monk making the shambling mounds and the quickwood where made into chopped salad. It was quite amusing watching the monk grapple and pin the tree. My table loved the idea the eating avocados gave you fire resistance. The loved they idea that eating grapes made you rage (then there were a whole lot of joke about the grapes of wrath).

After finding out about the altar and placing the broken klar blades on it they travelled back to the market and started doing just that with earth elemental summons doing all of the grunt work. I skipped the optional encounter, because we did get started late and it would not have even challenged the party. The party was then sent to the ethereal plane and I proceeded to explain the surroundings and made sure to mention that you could see through Galdron. Combat started with Galdron putting a wall of fire around the entire party except the wizard. After lots of summons, an eidolan swap with its summoner, things started to get heated (lol) when the invisible flying monk and paladin were flanking Galdron. After about 4 rounds into combat and constant reminders that you could see through Galdron and a knowledge check has yet to be rolled to identify that he is incoporeal, they were absolutely shocked and horrified when they found out that the monk couldn't grapple him and then even more horrified when the paladins smite evil fizzled. After rounds and rounds of magic missiles and the monk and paly slowly doing damage they were able to stop him.

Highlight of the game: Also probably the funniest thing the entire con was the pretty bada$$ monk trying to grapple the ghost. It was a look a pure shock and OMG what are we gonna do now. Then it donned on them that is why I kept saying you could see through him.

Nah. Having a +1 whip at low tier, with the ability to get AoOs with it, helped us take Galdron down fairly rapidly.

Note: I am the Real Bruno(tm).

Yeah... was just prepping to run this tonight.

Zeeva is listed as having the fortune, healing, and misfortune hexes. The problem is that she's listed as having Extra Hex feat; combined with the hexes she gains at first, second, and fourth levels, she should have one more hex.

Duly noted, but just to add some perspective, we never gave Zeeva a stat block worthy of a PC, because she's not a PC. She's not an adventurer.

I never wanted to make her, or her sister, defenseless victims—but they are individuals to whom the agents have been assigned to help. If she has a combat worthy stat block, then the players would (rightly) have some expectation of her joining in combat. That ran contrary to the mission and is something Mark and I wanted to avoid.

I think its fine to play her as written.

Oh, I didn't have any problems with her, I was just pointing out the omission.

Narris and Galdron are each missing an orison at subtier 8-9, but that is also something that shouldn't affect play.

An Incorporeal ghost still takes 50% damage from a PC's (non-ghost touch) magic weapon, even if both the ghost and PC are on the Ethereal plane, right?

Really enjoyed playing this, although my rogue was horribly shut out my the majority of the enemies. No sneak attack makes him sad.

Andoran ***

I know the feeling, TOZ. My conjurer was pretty much in the wrong place every time, including getting 'hugged" by the shambling mound.

Grand Lodge *

That mound is quite dangerous! Or am I reading something wrong!?:
If it hits, it does strike damage, then grabs as a free action, and if it succeeds, immediately does constrict damage? Combined with power attack, that's alot of damage potential! Aroden help the PC that gets hit twice and grappled both times! (Except he can't, being dead and all, so some PCs have the potential to be 1-shotted by the mound's full attack.)
