I agree, but I can't run while there is a village of innocents a few hundred yards away.

Malaswyn is a cleric of Sarenrae. No way is he leaving vulnerable people to be slaughtered.

I don't know how good the boggard children are at tactical withdrawal...

Don't you worry about that ace in the hole, my friend. I've got your ace in the hole.

His name's KRIGER BAY-BEE! Oh yeah!!! ;)

What's worse for a dragon than a Kriger? A Kriger with Smite Evil!

We can make it happen.

Its Kriger, isn't it? :)

Seriously, though. That makes me think of Bruenor.

A flying Kriger with smite evil and greater heroism?


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

LOL! Oh my gosh that would be ULTIMATE AWESOMENESS!!!


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Kriger actually has Resist energy, communal learned. I wish I had Protection from energy, communal learned too but I don't. And his Resist is only Resist 20. Man 1 more level and it would've been 30! So dang close.

Still, that dude BLASTED Kriger with a nasty breath and that save is near impossible to make. It's quite high. This dragon ain't no joke let me tell you. He's absolutely awesome! I love it. :)

Whoooooa ho ho! You CAN make it happen! Oh man I was thinking to myself: "Can he really?" and "That actually sounds familiar; let me take a look". And boy oh boy there it is! Aura of Justice!

Unfortunately, I'd get no bonus to hit or to my AC due to my 10 Charisma. But I'd still get +13 to damage! AND bypass all DR. Yeah, wouldn't complain in the least. :)

Sorry, but no. It is based on MY bonuses, not your attributes. +7 to hit it, +13 damage (+26 on the first hit) and +7 deflection bonus.

Okay, THAT'S cool. I was not aware of that. That just makes it even more awesome.

True. True. Every little bit does truly help.


Kingdom Mage 13, hp88/88, Per +10, AC 16/12/16, Saves For+8/Ref+7/Will+13, alignment obscured

Is that a morale bonus or holy bonus?

Greater heroism:
This spell functions like heroism, except the creature gains a +4 morale bonus on attack rolls, saves, and skill checks, immunity to fear effects, and temporary hit points equal to your caster level (maximum 20).

So I am not sure if smite stacks or not

Reading the paladin entry, it appears to be untyped.


Male Elf Cleric 13: AC 25, Hit Points 99/99, Perception +21, Initiative +8 Channels left 3/5 Current buffs: angelic aspect

How does everyone feel about receiving holy aura?


Kingdom Mage 13, hp88/88, Per +10, AC 16/12/16, Saves For+8/Ref+7/Will+13, alignment obscured

Oberlin would love to be wrapped in as many layers of soft fuzzy protection as possible


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

I'm not seeing how that's a bad thing. :)

Downside is, it's only 1 round/level. So you definitely gotta cast it at the right time.


Male Elf Cleric 13: AC 25, Hit Points 99/99, Perception +21, Initiative +8 Channels left 3/5 Current buffs: angelic aspect

One of my options is to one-round-summon a movanic deva. They're pretty badass, can cast holy aura as an SLA and are immune to acid.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Man those cats are bad to the bone. They're practically immune to ALL elements. Plus death plus energy drain plus petrification. SR 21. Crikey! Man that's just awesome. Their AC isn't very good but they sure aren't getting blasted by any form of element or death ray, that's for sure.


Male Elf Cleric 13: AC 25, Hit Points 99/99, Perception +21, Initiative +8 Channels left 3/5 Current buffs: angelic aspect

Oberlin really needs to make that save.

Clerics don’t have stone to flesh on their list.


Ok, wizard down. Please consider carefully your next moves. As some of you have mentioned, this is a real threat.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Yeah this is a tough spot for sure. Kriger can only affect it on the ground. Otherwise he's a sitting duck. He needs fly. Basically, Kalsgrim is our best bet with arrows and Smite Evil. But even then he can only do so much.

But Mal's summons sure does help. If nothing else they will at least pose a nominal distraction.

I don't know. Definitely a tough call.


Male Elf Cleric 13: AC 25, Hit Points 99/99, Perception +21, Initiative +8 Channels left 3/5 Current buffs: angelic aspect

I could put you on the back of a roc (too slow), or a young bronze dragon (too weak) but it would be two or three rounds and then falling damage would be the problem...


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Yeah that would be way too much time. Fly spell is obviously the best bet. Unfortunately it's arcane. :P


Male Human Paladin 13 | HP:147 | AC:27 | FF:25 | T:14 | CMB:+19 | CMD:29 | Fort:+22 | Ref:+18 | Will:+19 | Init:+3 | Imm:Fear/Charm/Disease | Perc:+2 | Dipl:+23(25) | SMot:+16 | Smite:5/5 | LoH:15/15 | DBond:2/2 |

What about the broom of flying?


Kingdom Mage 13, hp88/88, Per +10, AC 16/12/16, Saves For+8/Ref+7/Will+13, alignment obscured

The sad thing is, I was going to cast fly on Kriger this round. ☹️


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

The broom and carpet are handy but I don't think there's no way to fly and attack like you should be able to. Especially with a two-handed weapon. I mean, correct me if I'm wrong. I'd love to be wrong. No kidding.

And oh so close on the fly spell. That would've been cool and interesting.

"Yes, we'll buy them some time."

"Kriger, strike now!" He starts his aura of justice, giving all allies in 10' his smite evil ability for one minute, but they MUST use it next round for it to take effect. This is a free action for Kalsgrim.

I would love to but according to this...

Oberlin: Fortitude DC 20 or you are turned to a statue. Everyone can act. The carpet is 100 feet from the dragon. If Oberlin fails his save, someone will have to take over the driving (move action).

...I think we'd actually have to fly to him before I can do anything. He's just way too far away. At least, I believe that's the case. There's actually no way for us to strike at it if it truly is that far away.

You might want to hold off on the Aura of Justice. I didn't realize it had to be used pretty much instantly.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

@OM: Can we full attack from a carpet? Even if we could, though, somebody has to drive the thing so that takes away someone from combat. Just realizing that, I'm not sure attacking from the carpet is such a good idea.

We're stuck between a rock and a hard place to be honest.

Fly spell communal, maybe? That would be super handy. I'm not actually sure if that's a real spell though. It should be if it's not. Because it'd sure be cool! :)


For Aura of Justice, you can throw something at it, no?

For the flying brrom, let's keep it simple. It's like giving you the fly spell. You don't need hands, but you need to pilot it, with Fly or Ride skill checks when doing crazy stuff. You can ride it like a surf if you want ;)

You can carry a passenger, but the speed drops to 30 feet.


Male Elf Cleric 13: AC 25, Hit Points 99/99, Perception +21, Initiative +8 Channels left 3/5 Current buffs: angelic aspect

I can pilot the carpet as a platform for Kal’s full attacks.


Male Human Paladin 13 | HP:147 | AC:27 | FF:25 | T:14 | CMB:+19 | CMD:29 | Fort:+22 | Ref:+18 | Will:+19 | Init:+3 | Imm:Fear/Charm/Disease | Perc:+2 | Dipl:+23(25) | SMot:+16 | Smite:5/5 | LoH:15/15 | DBond:2/2 |

While a way to disengage in a couple of rounds would be awesome, I don't know that we could get away from it without at least giving it a bloody nose.

Kriger going after the dragon?


Sorry, I forgot to clarify about the carpet. It needs one driver to use a move action for driving in combat situations, unless the carpet is commanded to keep going the way it was going in the previous round.

Good lord this blows. I don't know who else has escape magic, but Oberlin being stoned really screwed up a ton of the backup plans. Can any of you guys use arcane scrolls?

Yes, sort of...Use Magic Device +17. A scroll is 20 + caster level.

I mentioned in the summer that Malaswyn would use wind walk and word of recall to get about the region.
And word of recall is sitting on my spell-list.

Can we persuade OM to agree that Malaswyn cast Word of Recall before we left?

The destination would be Malaswyn's private quarters back in the capital.

Would petrification count as an affliction? If so, I could transfer the affliction to myself and free up Oberlin to find a cure.


Kalsgrim Lodovka wrote:

I looked it up, and stone to flesh is not a curse, so it won't count as an affliction. It's one of those very nasty spell because only wizards can reverse petrification. That might be why the dragon cast it on the wizard...


Kingdom Mage 13, hp88/88, Per +10, AC 16/12/16, Saves For+8/Ref+7/Will+13, alignment obscured

Mentally shaking his fist.

Damn that Boba Ilthuliak. Who put a bounty mark out on my character? Nyrissa is definitely a Hutt.

So new project: make a bunch of stone to flesh scrolls for exactly this reason and give one to each of my comrades.


Kingdom Mage 13, hp88/88, Per +10, AC 16/12/16, Saves For+8/Ref+7/Will+13, alignment obscured

Yep, don't have stone to flesh, or flesh to stone for that matter.


Please note that I'll be travelling starting Friday, all the way until New Year, with limited opportunities for posting.

Hope everyone had a happy holiday season! Ready to get back at it!


Male Elf Cleric 13: AC 25, Hit Points 99/99, Perception +21, Initiative +8 Channels left 3/5 Current buffs: angelic aspect

Aye! I’ve been wandering what happens with this invite.

Do we apologise and focus on the dragon threat? Or do we still go?


Happy New Year Everyone!

I'm slowly emerging back to daily routine. I'll run the encounter with the wizard shortly for the purchase of scrolls.


Male Human Paladin 13 | HP:147 | AC:27 | FF:25 | T:14 | CMB:+19 | CMD:29 | Fort:+22 | Ref:+18 | Will:+19 | Init:+3 | Imm:Fear/Charm/Disease | Perc:+2 | Dipl:+23(25) | SMot:+16 | Smite:5/5 | LoH:15/15 | DBond:2/2 |

I wasn't planning on having Kalsgrim go to the mage with the others. While his diplomacy might have helped, I didn't want to attract even more attention to the issue by having the duke show up in the middle of town asking those questions.


Ok, makes sense. Kriger is in charge of diplomacy then!


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Lol! Oh this ought to be good. :P


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

@Malaswyn: Kriger can share an Animal Focus with him. Bear which would increase his Con by 4.

But can Kriger do that? Can he share a Focus with a 'statue'? It seems weird but heck, I don't know. *shrugs*
