That's a fair point - in hindsight, Fifi should have bought at least a silver/cold iron scimitar. I am also SO buying an Ioun Torch after this.


The torch wouldn't have helped (it'd get snuffed out too)

I was intending to literally run into the mite, probably provoking an AoO, and attack where he came from last turn if that didn't happen. I've been really busy and am trying to sneak in posts where possible after updating my table of the special. Considering that Marcus is not the most able to handle darkness, feel free to just bot him as 'ready action, hit back whatever hits me in melee.'

Darkness requires daylight or a source of darkvision to deal with. For those without spellcasting or UMD, its basically oil of daylight for 750 gp a pop. For casters, scrolls of darkvision or daylight, work, or if they can pull it off, heightened continual flame.

What? But an Ioun Torch is enchanted with Continual Flame, not with a Light spell. As a lvl 3 spell, it is not snuffed out by darkness.


Continual Flame is a level 3 spell for clerics, but a level 2 spell for wizards/sorcerers.

By PFS rules, and just in general (else it'd cost twice as much), the Ioun Torch is considered to use to the lower level arcane version.

Not to mention the price is misprinted anyway. But that's a different issue.

For those interested in such things, there is a new Pathfinder pdf bundle available on HumbleBundle.com

It basically will give you pretty much every core book, and a number of the companion books, and the entire Shattered Star adventure path (all in pdf format) for $18.
Even includes the Starfinder players handbook, if you want to check that out.

Seems a great deal if you don't have any of them, and a great deal if you have lots of them. =)


taking this out of gameplay. =)

Youre right woops. But I think you also missed this post -https://paizo.com/campaigns/EMPFSTheKingIsDeadBoring/gameplay&page=42# 2100 - Zarisha DOES heal with normal magic unlike an eidolon

Point of note: none of those heals were on Zarisha. (Fifi merely mused IC on not knowing if they'd actually even work, before healing herself. You might be confused by the pronouns Fifi was using there, but the rolls show who the recipients are for each)

But, after going back through the discussion thread, Londo did indeed hit level 5!

(But you don't actually say your level anywhere in your profile or stat line! And some of the info there is not updated to reflect the level... so I got confused!)

Anyway, even with the DR magic, the blow takes her to 0, which makes her staggered, and unable to complete her action.
Unsure if she'd lose a hp for the activity... for now will say no... so she can still be conscious.


Marcus, your attack/damage numbers seem off.

Part of that I think is due to you not accounting for hitting level 4 on the reckless abandon (which ups the bonus to +2 (and ac to -2)
But the damage numbers aren't affected by that, so not sure about those.

Anyway, for attack I'm looking at:
4 (bab) + 3 (str) + 2 (rage str) + 1 (regular enhancement) + 2 (extra enhancement from scabbard) + 2 (reckless abandon) = 14

for damage:
3 (str) + 2 (rage str) + 1 (regular enhancement) + 2 (extra enhancement) = 8

Currently you're using +13 for the attack, and +10 for damage
The first is 1 too low, the latter 2 too high.

Your bite seems off too.
Attack: 4 (bab) - 5 (secondary attack) + 3 (str) + 2 (rage str) + 2 (reckless abandon) = 6
Damage: 1 (str) + 1 (rage str) = 2

So the damage is right, but your attack roll seems low by 1

What am I missing?

I most definitely did not take into account the reckless abandon change at level 4. Oops...

I am however, wielding the cutlass 2 handed like an untrained oaf. Because it's fun. I like the idea of having a fancy weapon designed for finesse and acting like an untrained teenager pretending to be 'all that.'

So taking the new reckless abandon boost into account, it seems as though my attack rolls have been 1 too low, and my AC 1 too high. Damage should be correct though given the 2-handed strength bonus.


Hmm... for some reason I thought the cutlass was the same as a short sword (and thus a light weapon and finessable, etc)

Apparently not.

And I even have a character who uses one! (Admittedly, he's not proficient in it, so it has never really come up =))

So I was wondering here, do we have a plan here? I am not sure out-waiting Dalrio is an option here, especially if he still possesses that silver amulet. While it looks like we are too late to save the prisoners we still should try ending his existence.

Honestly Londo just needed a round to get set up as a tank and I was hoping the skeletons would come to us (and out of the darkness).


So the intent is just to open it right up again, a round later?

Both Fifi and I have no idea of what is happening. I'll take the delay action both in-game and OOC.

I'd say go with Londo's strategy for 3 reasons:
1 - He has one
2 - He is actually the one holding the door
3 - See reason 1

Marcus will continue to delay with his bow out and give bad advice with a whiny voice.

Alright, yeah, that sounds more manageable. Just close the door for 1 round as Midge prepares to summon an eagle, then open it again to attack with the celestial birds!

Sounds good - Londo reopens the door immediately prior to Midges summoning spell ending.

And takes a swift action to activate his Zarisha-shield.

See, Marcus's strategy is sound. Suggest an drastic course of action and expect someone smarter to fill in the details. He will of course be taking credit for the brilliant victory.


Actually, Marcus' strategy is near to netting you guys a failure on the mission and zero prestige =)

Alright so from what we've talked, Masym would ready to throw, Marcus would delay, the dead things would get to act once, Fifi would delay until Londo's next turn, Midge would start casting SM1, Kioshi would delay (?), Dalirio would get to act once, and then Londo would open the door again.

Hopefully, Dalirio won't be able to escape in 1 round.

Londo's strategy. He closed the door after all. Remember: ManagementNobility takes credit and assigns blame!


That's better =)


Moving this here for the nonce.

Londo, I'm pretty sure that Zarisha does not get to save vs the Hold Person each round, once you shunt it off to her. It will run its normal duration at that point. She's not actually suffering the spells effects (heck, she's would not even a legal target) ... she has just taken the bullet from you, and by doing so is out of commission until it runs its course.

She doesn't even have saves, or hd, or anything of that sort, unless fully manifested. (as per the last line under the phantom class ability)


In case no one noticed... I'm having fun taunting Fifi with Dalirio... just seemed appropriate given their first encounter. =)

Sadly, I started that last bit thinking Dalirio had a blindness spell to use... and had a few great lines to lead into it...

Then realized I'd remembered wrong, and he didn't have the spell after all. 8(
So had to adjust the commentary a bit.

Though, I suppose I should make sure Fifi is ok with it... can scale it back a bit if so.

I do love the taunting - it creates a big rivalry against the baddie, really makes it feel personal =)

Well, this looks like the end of this campaign.


Marcus, we kind of skipped over you there, for time issues, since I knew your action, whatever it was that round, would not impact things too much... so we can retroactively add that move in for the prior round if you'd like. Giving you a second turn this one!

Though don't know how eager Marcus is to get in close... given how crappy his AC is, even when he can see.

Ah, so the sash is like a talisman? Nifty.

Can we use Marcus's double move as last turn, and this turn will depend on the result of Londo's survival? Marcus can't do much in the dark and was hoping to force him out... eventually. Doesn't seem like that'll happen though. Definitely regretting playing this character in a darkness-happy campaign. At 750 gp for encounter for oil of daylight, I think Marcus is gonna be a cash sink.


Kioshi would be a cheaper option!

Londo will still be standing... he was 1 hp off of the totally dramatic moment. (Went from -5 to +1 from the scarf heal ... rather than -6 to 0 to unconscious after the swing). If I could, I'd go back and fudge the damage the previous round to add one more =)

As is, he and Dalirio will still be standing at this point. Not that you can necessarily see any of that.

As you pointed out, Kioshi can't use a scroll if he's in darkness like the previous room. At this point I'm relying on people with darkvision to keep Marcus relevant, but it seems that he is not going to be relevant at all for this encounter. I'll have to consider if it makes sense both in and out of character to continue onto part 4 if we're expecting more of the same, and expecting Marcus to continue being a liability.

A scroll of Daylight is always a good backup he he.


You don't need a scroll... just need Kioshi to learn the spell =)

And really, regular darkvision would have got you through this... potions of that are not nearly as pricey.
hell there's even a communal version of the spell.
Probably even a rage power that gives it.

Or alter self would solve the problem... again, a 2nd level potion (or spell)... (though from a strictly darkvision standpoint, this option has a far smaller duration than the darkvision spell straight up... but you could be a dwarf!)


Oh ya, and in case you weren't quite feeling like it... that lovely dramatic ending was our finale!

We are for the most part, at the end of part III here (still some intel to gather, but that will be quick(ish).

Which means the usual call for day jobs rolls and any faction card questions.

Don't waste too many non-renewable resources here (other than stabilizing Fifi!) ... You'll look far more boss, coming out of this looking like you've been through the ringer!

The stat penalty on Fifi will fade, eventually (Touch of Idiocy, 40 minutes or so))
The str damage on Masym will recover over the next couple of days on its own.
The str damage on Zarisha will not be so easy, as she can't heal it by resting. So that will need to be resolved.

Both Marcus and Zarisha also got diseased... but will deal with this in Gameplay. Though any stat damage that occurs on Zarisha will have the same issues as her current str penalty, as far as recovery goes.
