-No it does not. It affects Sp abilities, spells and enchantments. If the BoL flask is Sp and is used somewhere within the radius of the antimagic field, you are out a boon for no effect.
Sorry to contradict you but AMF does affect SU abilities.
An invisible barrier surrounds you and moves with you. The space within this barrier is impervious to most magical effects, including spells, spell-like abilities, and supernatural abilities.
Instantaneous conjuration spells are not affected by it but that is mostly just wall of stone.

Merp. Ok, so it affects Su abilities.
This is the text of the relevant Boon, Urko has one as well.
Alchemical Quicksilver: You have recovered a small amount of quicksilver from within a philosopher’s stone. The portion you have is insufficient to bring a long-dead corpse back to life, but you can mix it with a potion of cure serious wounds to create a splash weapon that affects a direct target as per breath of life (CL 20th). Mixing the potion and quicksilver takes a full-round action, and once prepared, the splash weapon is stable until used
I would probably treat it as a magical potion which means it wouldn't work in an AMF.
Yes, sorry for the delay in posting. Last few days have been hectic. Should be able to post something later today. Thanks for your patience!
Thanks GM. If the other zelekhut winked back earlier in the round then let me know if he gets an action. Otherwise I will post both on Hugo’s next turn..,if they still exist. :)
I will be traveling Wed-Sun and will only be able to post sporadically. Please bot as needed.
It has been over two weeks now since we have had a GM post, I hope everything is alright. It would be a shame for us to falter now at the final hurdle.
Yes, hope he’s ok!
Fyi, traveling until Sunday night and I forgot my charger. May or may not be able to post. Please bot me as needed.
Hello everyone. Thank you for your concern. I am alive and well. But as you might have noticed, I have been noticeably absent from the boards. Why? Well... Work. And, if I might be honest here, a sense of deep deep burnout.
If I had been a wiser man, I wouldn't have committed to many of the games I picked up in the last four months. But I did, and now I am going to have to make some difficult posts.
On the upside, I believe that I can finish this game. But I will need to hand some others over. If you can be of any assistance in that matter, I would appreciate it deeply.
In the meantime, lets get back to the final fight.
No worries Upaynao - personally I'm fine with whatever pace you want to keep - I've got a lot on my plate right now too. Glad to hear that you are alright.
Totally understandable. I am getting into running PbP a bit more now and could probably pick something up if you need a hand.

I think there's some confusion about the status of the various attacks on Agata so I'm going to write a summary of what I *think* has happened so far:
1. Unity targets Agata with Implosion (posted here), Fort DC 26.
2. Before Unity's Implosion spell could target Agata, it had to make a concentration check (DC 32, I think) to have been maintaining concentration on Implosion (due to Agata having done 13 Force damage to Unity with Disintegrate). Unity made its concentration check by using Mythic Surge for a 38 (posted here). So Unity's Implosion goes off on Agata.
3. Agata uses Fortune (to roll twice and take the better result) and her Four Leaf Clover (to add +3 to the result) on her save against Implosion. She rolls a 34 and a 23, takes the better result of 34, and therefore passes her save against Implosion. Per the spell text of Implosion, Agata takes no damage and cannot be targeted by this casting of Implosion again.
4. Unity then loses its Implosion spell due to Urko's targeted Greater Dispel Magic.
5. Unity acts again (still in round 4) and now directs Destruction at Agata. She doesn't have Fortune available to roll twice because she's already used it once this round (for her save against Implosion). She uses a second use of Four Leaf Clover (free action) to give herself a +3, and also uses a chronicle boon (immediate action) to give herself a +4 insight bonus vs a spell (she already has a +1 insight bonus, so the net result is another +3). She rolls poorly, giving her a 25. There is some confusion about what the DC of the spell should be (we've been told - metagame - that the DC for Implosion was 26; Implosion is a 9th level spell and Destruction is a 7th level one, so that would suggest - metagame - that the DC for Destruction is probably 24 (unless Unity has shenanigans).
At this point we probably need a GM ruling on whether or not Agata "knows" that she's made the save with a result of 25 (or, for that matter, if she "knows" that she's failed it with a result of 25 if that's the case).
Be that as it may, I went ahead and posted again, on the assumption that I'd better use my GM reroll for this (and personally I'm fine with assuming that I would have done that since in face to face play I wouldn't "know" that I had probably beaten the DC by 1 with a 25). I rolled even worse on the die for my GM reroll, but when my stars are added I have a 26 on the reroll, so Agata passes her save against Destruction. Which means, I believe, that she simply takes 10d6 damage.
So, unless I've missed something, the end result is: Agata takes 10d6 damage. She's used Fortune (until her next turn). She's used two uses of her Four Leaf Clover and a chronicle boon. She's used her immediate action so she has no swift action available on her coming turn. And the GM should rule on whether her initial roll of 25 vs Destruction was sufficient and she "knew" that (and therefore she has NOT used the GM reroll), or whether that's improper metagaming and therefore she has used the GM reroll (for what it's worth, I think I would probably rule the latter).
Tl;dr: whew, I think Agata is still alive. For now.

I will be away at Paizocon UK from this coming Thursday until Monday, my posting will be limited.
Wondering where we are with this game...
GM, no rush at all, but any indication you can give us about where we are would be helpful for planning purposes.
Hello everyone! Two things:
-With regards to where we are I think we have another couple months ahead, hopefully less, but I would plan for your characters being available in mid-October (Unity being the only big threat on the field right now, even though the angel are annoying).
-I'm going to be at GenCon from today to next Tuesday. I'll post on Tuesday to advance things. Hopefully Marduk will have put in his actions. I meant to advance things earlier this week but work has seen to that.
Hope to see you there if you are there.
Thanks for the clarification, GM. Have a good time at Gencon!

I'll be at DragonCon from Thursday (i.e. tomorrow) through late Sunday night and most likely won't be able to post during that time. Please bot me as needed.
@GM - no matter how we end up being disintegrated in the end, I appreciate you running this wild ride for this long with all of us. Especially with RL taking more time for you. Thanks for your commitment and having us as part of the story. :-)
And I am not just saying that to not be disintegrated first.
Yes indeed, it has been a wild ride. Many thanks for running this for us all.

Alright, almost done with chronicle sheets. Agata, I will need you to roll a day job check.
Craft (Alchemy): 1d20 + 31 ⇒ (16) + 31 = 47 Agata has a boon that gives her double gold on her day job checks.
GM, thanks so much for running this! This has been such a blast for me. This is the highest level I've ever played a PC and I really enjoyed all the new kinds of challenges that arose (those antimagic fields were brutal). When we started I was also completely brand new to PbP, and was kind of intimidated by it. I had signed up for a game of The Wounded Wisp on the theory that it would be a good intro to PbP and then just also jumped into this one as well at about the same time kind of on a whim, thinking that it would give me another chance to play a favorite character. The Wounded Wisp game collapsed almost immediately (the GM was banned from the PbP boards I think) and that left this game as my only real introduction to PbP. And now here we are 2 years later (or is it 3, I've lost track) and I've played and run many games in PbP now and in many ways I now prefer it to tabletop. Also, GM, I want to express my appreciation for *how* you run your games - it has been a huge influence in how I run in PbP, both in practical and stylistic ways. So, thank you.
And to my fellow players: wow, this has been a great adventure in the sort of collaborative play that makes Pathfinder such a great team game. Thank you.
Yes, this was an excellent team effort, definately one of my favourite PbP games to date. It was one of my first as well. You handled our high level shennanigans excellently.
The first gameplay post was October 2nd, 2017, so almost exactly two years ago.
I am 100% in agreement, this was fantastic. Now Nalshene will be going officially into retirement (I'm going to use a convention boon on her that will give her another 3 XP if I don't play her for a full year, so she'll end her career at a respectable level 19. :-D
Adding my chorus to the whole "great GMing, great playing." High level play is always a beast to GM, and this party had so many casters that it was even more true, let alone actual gods to adjudicate, and to keep it going through two YEARS of gameplay, with each fight its own uber-powered challenge, is a testament to both our fabulous GM and a group of dedicated players. Well done, everyone. :) :)
Yup. Thanks for GMing Upaynao (how do you pronounce this?)
And great game guys. I look forward to crossing paths with all of you again in the future.

Alright, so first things first: Here are your chronicle sheets
Feral, it's pronounced "You Pay Now". One of the first games I GMed was in the Eberron setting, and the PCs ended up getting into a kerfuffle with some hobgoblins in a market. One of the stall owners, a goblin woman of middle age and a poor grasp on Common, demanded that the PCs pay for the damages they had caused - loudly. In an effort to soothe her and avoid getting the attention of the town guard, the cleric attempted to talk her down saying they were short on cash, but would pay her later. And then rolled a Nat 1 on diplomacy. Her response? With a gasp she said: "You lie! U PAY NAO!!!!!"
I would like to confess that this last stretch has had me feeling increasingly guilty. When we set off, I was posting at about a rate of three times a week. Not the paltry once, perhaps twice if lucky, rate I have cobbled together now. But I am glad that you still managed to find enjoyment out of this.
I am also glad that you were willing to allow me to throw an extra threat at you all in the form of the Overlord robot. If you have the opportunity, go check out that bad boy; that is only a taste of what you faced (well, more like 80%, but hey, mythic godlings do make for fun times).
I am really happy that I made a positive impression and gave you a template worth latching onto. PbP does lend itself better to telling the story behind the NPCs. But it is unfortunately not something I have the capability to partake in appropriately for the moment.
In any case, I am likely going to take a very long break. I hope that I'll be able to hop on back and that 2e won't have overtaken everything as the doomsayers do say on these forums and in real life (complete with faint smells of cabbage and questionable hygiene). In the meantime, let me know if there were any parts you have questions about, anything I have forgotten on your sheets, and I'll likely close the thread sometime next week? Maybe? (Work has "flared up" as they say).
Looks great, and thanks GM for sticking with us - almost 2 years to the week! Enjoy the break. I definitely appreciated the story telling aspect and you and the group made this very memorable. Among the top experiences I had with a RP group (going back to Living Greyhawk) :)
