ADVENTURE PATH COMPLETE

Diplomacy: 1d20 + 29 ⇒ (7) + 29 = 36

Zileska adds, "Besides... this isn't exactly how to be known as an incorruptible guard force for the Emperor, standing by while one would-be Emperor murders the existing one."

Bloody writer's block. And allergies.

"To aid in regicide displays your loyalties to a specific person and always leaves your loyalty to the throne in question."

Diplomacy: 1d20 + 24 ⇒ (12) + 24 = 36
Free Inspiration, add highest to above result: 2d8 ⇒ (5, 4) = 9


Unfortunately, while Melodie's attempt at deceptions sways a trio of the Ulfen Guard to your side, Zhi's words fall flat, and Zileska and Maria each are only able to convince a single guard. Of the dozen northern warriors that surround you, seven remain loyal to Daronlyr, outnumbering your converts.

Daronlyr smiles. "Their loyalty is to the crown, and the man who wears it. Perhaps now you’ll understand that loyalty to high-minded ideals is a child’s fantasy. Kill them!"

Four of the Ulfen warriors step forward to attack!

Initiative:
Mai Zhi: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (2) + 8 = 10
Maria: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21
Melodie: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (10) + 4 = 14
Sara: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (13) + 7 = 20
Zileska: 1d20 + 2 ⇒ (15) + 2 = 17
Safina: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9
Ulfen Guards: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10

Sorry guys, it was a difficult challenge, and Diplomacy was the skill with the highest DC at 38! For every 5 you beat the DC by, you would convince one more guard to join you, and you had to get 9 out of 12 to avoid combat.

Everybody but Safina may act before the Ulfens!

"Bow before me!" Melodie commands, her voice ringing with power. The light in the throne room seems to bend, engulfing her in an aura of power and majesty.

Overwhelming Presence. DC28 will. Nearest guard gets the voice and all the linked penalties.


Game Concluded

Melodie:
{"You're so hot when you do that."} Zhi sends, fighting the urge to bow herself.

Waiting to see the results of Mel's 'Galadriel' moment.


Will: 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (5) + 14 = 191d20 + 18 ⇒ (7) + 18 = 251d20 + 18 ⇒ (12) + 18 = 301d20 + 18 ⇒ (14) + 18 = 32

Two of the Ulfen guards fall to their knees in abject wonder, but the other two prove strong of will and resist Melodie’s magic.


Game Concluded

Assuming that when the Ulfens stepped forward, that put them within a 5' step of us. :) :)

Forgot to roll for the re-cast mirror image

Mirror Image: 1d4 + 4 ⇒ (2) + 4 = 6 images

Zhi vanishes from sight and moves forward to plunge her blades into one of the Ulfen guards that had the temerity to not bow down before her Princess.

ADVENTURE PATH COMPLETE

Zileska makes a coquettish turn and says, "If you won't kneel from awe, there are... other motivations."

Casting waves of ecstasy, DC 23 Will save.


Will: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (13) + 10 = 231d20 + 18 ⇒ (12) + 18 = 30

Both of the remaining Ulfen grunt and shift uncomfortably, but their rage seems to override Zileska’s spell of lust.

Maria is up, I will parse Zhi’s attacks after she posts.

How are they raging if they haven't acted yet? :P


1 person marked this as a favorite.

They were already angry before combat started. :P

Concentrating her attention on the nearest hostile, Maria moved in to strike.

Studied Attack: 1d20 + 26 ⇒ (12) + 26 = 38
Damage: 1d6 + 1d6 + 13 ⇒ (1) + (3) + 13 = 17


Both Zhi and Maria wound their opponents. Staggered, the barbarians fail to retaliate!

Greatsword vs Zhi, Maria: 1d20 + 21 ⇒ (17) + 21 = 381d20 + 21 ⇒ (9) + 21 = 30
Miss: 1d100 ⇒ 38

Everybody is up!


ADVENTURE PATH COMPLETE

Figuring that Zhi could perhaps use a little help, Zileska unfurls her whip again and lashes out - but instead of snapping it in the face of one of the Ulfen Guard, she instead spins in a coil and loops it around the unwitting guardsman.

Whip grapple: 1d20 + 18 ⇒ (18) + 18 = 36

The rules seem to support that using Greater Whip Mastery to grapple lets you add your relevant bonuses from Weapon Finesse, Weapon Focus, enhancement, etc.

Assuming this beats his CMD, which is unlikely but possible, he is treated as grappled. For now that's just 2 points off his AC, but if I can beat 'im again next round, I can switch to pinning, which is really bad news.

Note that while grappled he can't perform an action that requires two hands - not sure if he's using a two-handed weapon, but if so, he can't attack with it while grappled. </innuendo>


Game Concluded

Zhi continues to attack her same opponent, moving slightly to keep him guessing about her location. 5' step

One of the groveling Ulfen guards manages to recover, though the strain on his mind takes its toll. Zhi finds some of her attempts to sneak attack her foe foiled by his magically fortified armor. Zileska manages to grapple Maria's foe with her whip!

Safina Attacks: 1d20 + 21 ⇒ (13) + 21 = 341d20 + 21 ⇒ (14) + 21 = 351d20 + 16 ⇒ (11) + 16 = 271d20 + 11 ⇒ (14) + 11 = 25

Safina fires four bolts into Zhi's opponent, but it's still not enough to drop the mighty barbarian!

Melodie and Maria are up!

Melodie steps up and thrusts the Scions Dagger into the eye of the helpless guardsmen, her face impassive.

Damage: 2d4 + 9d6 + 42 ⇒ (1, 2) + (4, 4, 1, 3, 3, 4, 1, 6, 1) + 42 = 72 Can he make a DC 82 fort save?


Fortitude: 1d20 + 21 ⇒ (10) + 21 = 31

He cannot.

The burly man spasms as he dies.

Maria is up!

Taking advantage of the opening Zileska provided, Maria let loose on her target.

Maria lands two strikes on the grappled warrior. The staggered Ulfen gets to his feet while the grappled one breaks free of Zileska’s whip. The other one swings blindly at the invisible Zhi, landing one lucky hit!

"Aren't you just a big, strong, virile man," Zhi mocks her opponent. "About to be brought down by a little girl with a hat pin." Her disembodied laughter dances around him.

"Stop hurting my friends." Melodie commands flatly, overwhelming Maria's foe with grief.

Terrible Remorse, all usual stare penalties.

Zhi and Safina combine their assault on the wounded Ulfen, and at last, he falls! Maria's foe succumbs to Melodie's terrible remorse.

Maria and Zileska are up!

Enemy Status:
Ulfen 2 -4 Wis and staggered 1, Ulfen 4 -36 and remorse


ADVENTURE PATH COMPLETE

Zileska looks a bit annoyed at having her whip gambit fail, so she falls back on simply trying to paralyze one of the foes.

Hold person, Will save DC 18. Ideally on someone who's taking a penalty thanks to Zhi's stabbing, if possible, though it looks like no such luck.


Will: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (15) + 16 = 31

The uninjured Ulfen guard resists Zileska's magic.

Maria is up!

With just one foe left, Maria moved in on the last one.

Move to get into melee, swift for studied combat, standard for attack.

Studied Attack: 1d20 + 26 ⇒ (7) + 26 = 33
Damage: 1d6 + 1d6 + 13 ⇒ (1) + (6) + 13 = 20


Still two so you can take your full attack.

More Maria Attacks: 1d20 + 21 ⇒ (4) + 21 = 251d20 + 16 ⇒ (7) + 16 = 23

Maria scores one hit on her opponent. Afflicted by remorse, the Ulfen hits himself before attacking Maria, though the tiefling dodges his attacks. The other Ulfen charges Melodie, scoring a critical hit!

Struck down and restored in nearly the same moment Melodie resorts to her dagger, whistling a single note to set the blade humming with sonic power.

Melodie steps out of range and snaps. "Stop it!" at the Ulfen.

Safina shifts her aim to support Zhi and Melodie, and even though the Ulfen's fortified armor protects him from most of Zhi's sneak attacks, their combined assault is enough to take him down. Melodie focuses her psychic power on the last Ulfen, managing to paralyze him! Maria delivers a coup de grace, driving her blade through his throat, and he gurgles and falls.

With Daronlyr's warriors defeated, the Ulfen you swayed earlier turn on the emperor. "No! Inconceivable! Noooo!" Daronlyr screams as the Ulfen fall upon him, hacking him apart! With Daronlyr's death, the shadows and crimson tones of the throne room return to normal, the furs crumble to dust, and the stream of blood trickling from the throne soaks into the floor, leaving no trace. When you return into Carrius's mindscape, the crown door crumbles to rubble.

Only two doors remain, and enough of Carrius has been restored to flesh that the boy is able to manage a tired smile. "What's this? My sister's friends... in my head. But are you my friends, I wonder? Or my foes? Stavian and Gennaris... They cry for your blood. I think... I think it would be best to listen to them... Right?"


ADVENTURE PATH COMPLETE

"No, Carrius, we've always looked out for you - saving you from the cult, working hard to give you back your life. It was Stavian who killed you in the first place, remember," says Zileska soothingly.


"Stavian... No, not my father. He was Stavian III. This is Stavian I... The progenitor of our line. Greatest among emperors, second only to Taldaris himself! He says you should be burned... Purged by fire like the heathen Qadirans!"


Game Concluded

"Other than some minor healing, do we have the resources to tackle another of the emperors?" Zhi asks the others.

Zhi does, not sure about the others.

"If Zil can patch me up." Melodie says, proving gingerly at the massive bruise beneath her new mail. "It sou nd's like Stavian is taking fire to the extreme. Do we have any protections against that?"

"I've got an extract of Fire Shield that should ward off heat somewhat. Only one, though, I'm afraid, and it'll only last a bit over a minute and a half."

As she spoke, she finished readying a mild healing extract to close up the bleeding the ulfen had inflicted on her before.

Zileska applies her dwindling older wand to help Melodie and says, "Good thing I have communal protection from energy prepared."

Well Maria's down to 68 out of 105 so wouldn't say no to a bit of a patch-up. I updated her stat bar just before so the count in there now's accurate.

Zhi could also use some patching up. She's at 73 of 108.


And Melodie is at 78/93 after the last bit of healing.

Well... that's fixed that up quite well. :P


After Zileska dispenses healing and wards the party from fire, you step through the fire door. The red glow of leaping flames and drifting embers illuminates the endless expanse of collapsing and ruined buildings. Iron cages hang from buildings and posts, each one holding a burning, writhing skeleton that clutches the bars with blackened finger bones and works its jaw in silent agony. Now and then, a thin scream—more like the hiss of a kettle than a human sound—pierces above the crackle of flames.

You can hear someone talking and crashing through the rubble nearby. You take some time to cast any other preparatory spells you would like, then move towards the noise, quickly coming across Stavian I’s legend. He appears as a handsome Taldan man, larger than life and sculpted from living flame. In a reasonable, resonant voice, he says, “All I have done, I did to protect Taldor. Can you not see how weak our nation was? The Cult of the Dawnflower would have broken us in two, with Qadira waiting to strike once we were brought low. What’s this? More heretics. You shall serve as an example to others.”

Spells cast in preparation to augment Zhi's current buffs; haste, transformation.

Zhi vanishes as she takes a short step to flank with Safina or Maria - assuming she was right next to Safina.

"No persuasion this time, I guess," she says as she begins her lethal dance.

"I don't know..." Melodie replies to her invisible wife. "You see no heretics here. It is time to return to Taldor as a hero." She continues, speaking to Stavian now.

Dominate Person. Stavian will take a total of -12 On his will and -4 to reflex, attacks, SR etc.


Remember dominate person takes 1 round to cast, so Stavian will get to act before it finishes. He also has SR so I will need a caster level check.
