Yes he can and I agree with the ruling on bonuses. However in this case they are not too close. How many to be distracted

I am assuming that no-one has told Lubella anything yet about what has occurred inside, or what questions have been asked.

I wrote the last post on my phone and while in a bit of a hurry, so please forgive the lack of formatting. The answer to where are the prisoners taken I assume to be on the papers. In any case, Talvek will not contradict what is in the papers. Assume that he gives the officer the name he comes up with, someone distant enough in posting that they can't send a runner to verify.


Forged Map | Rebels Map

Talvek, those are fine assumptions. I responded accordingly.

Arcos or Sidius can share messages to Lubella while Talvek is doing the talking, but they will also need to reply or have Talvek cover for them.

Uh, I could use a reroll here.

I fear that it will just make things worse if Lubella tries to come inside. I am really worried about the "fiend" having DR/silver; I just can't see how Lubella can join the fight without involving Sabo and the guards.

The only other support Lubella can give is one CLW spell and a couple of healing potions for Fhingle.

Oh crud, just realized I lost one of my posts...or part of it. I wanted to verify the halfling's were moving closer to the front door or opening it or staying in the alleyway.

Lubella is moving closer to the front door, but is not opening it.

Fhingle is following Lubella, I will also put a life link on her.

Arcos, Sidies and Talvek: your move!

No pressure. Take your time... Muahahahaha! :)

Fyi my wife is having surgery tomorrow. I might be able to post but could be short and from waiting room if I get time. Next couple days will be limited.

Thanks. Surgery went well but will be overnight recovery. I am still in waiting room

I’ll get my action up tomorrow. Work has been especially hectic with ski season starting up.


Forged Map | Rebels Map

No worries. Between Halloween and bringing my wife home from the hospital, it was a busy night here as well. Hopefully we can get back to normal-ish soon now she is home. :)


AKA "Kyda" Halfling Dawnflower Dervish 4 | HP: 39/39 AC:19 T:15 F:15 | Saves F:6 R:10 W:5 | Init: 4 | Per: 8 | CMB:1 CMD:15 | Speed 30ft | Active: Protection from Law

@Sidius: I'm sure you're already aware, but supernatural abilities (like your Evil Eye and Slumber hexes) don't require concentration checks, don't provoke AoOs, and are unaffected by wearing armor. Even being grappled doesn't stop you from using them.

Let's hope that this creature isn't immune to mind-affecting. :)

I'm aware, and to be fair, I have so few spells left, that's about all I could do anyway. Still hoping this is more a hazing than anything, but will go EE then Slumber (hoping the first makes the second work)


AKA "Kyda" Halfling Dawnflower Dervish 4 | HP: 39/39 AC:19 T:15 F:15 | Saves F:6 R:10 W:5 | Init: 4 | Per: 8 | CMB:1 CMD:15 | Speed 30ft | Active: Protection from Law

I think Talvek has taken his round 2 action already; he has attacked twice (and hopefully scored two hits: 29 damage minus twice DR and regen).

A knowledge check is probably a good idea. :)

If the opponent has both DR and fast healing, our only hope may be the slumber hex. I can't see how Lubella can realistically join in the fight.


Tiefling Investigator (empiricist) 3/Swashbuckler (inspired blade) 1 | HP 40/40+9/9 | AC 18 Tch. 14, Ff. 14 | Fort +5. Ref +10, Will +2 | Resist cold/electricity/fire: 5 | Init +5 | Perception +11; darkvision 60 ft. | "Jackdaw"

Indeed, Talvek has scored two hits - one was the readied attack and the second was his round 2 action crit.


Forged Map | Rebels Map

Ok, sorry. I included the crit as the readied attack. Will move us along in a bit.


AKA "Kyda" Halfling Dawnflower Dervish 4 | HP: 39/39 AC:19 T:15 F:15 | Saves F:6 R:10 W:5 | Init: 4 | Per: 8 | CMB:1 CMD:15 | Speed 30ft | Active: Protection from Law

Note: If the torturer cast Order's Wrath:

Order's Wrath wrote:
The spell deals only half damage to creatures who are neither chaotic nor lawful, and they are not dazed. They can reduce the damage in half again (down to one-quarter of the roll) with a successful Will save.

This would apply to Arcos, who is neutral good.

My PC died, so I don't have access to HeroLab for a bit. Also really busy the next few days, so feel free to bot me to move things along.

Note: Talvek regains a point of panache for the critical hit.

For botting purposes I would suggest that he always uses the opportune parry and riposte deed to counter an incoming attack (once/round).


Vigilante 4 | HP 29 | AC 17 T 14 FF 13 | F +2 R +7 W +4 | Init +5 | Perc +3 |

Work’s been hectic today, and I’m absolutely wiped. I’ll post my action tomorrow.


Forged Map | Rebels Map

No worries - I am there with you, Arcos. :)


AKA "Kyda" Halfling Dawnflower Dervish 4 | HP: 39/39 AC:19 T:15 F:15 | Saves F:6 R:10 W:5 | Init: 4 | Per: 8 | CMB:1 CMD:15 | Speed 30ft | Active: Protection from Law

Note that Talvek can add 1d6 Inspiration on a Knowledge check, without expending a use.

Sidius can still use Evil Eye on the torturer's AC and attacks.


Tiefling Investigator (empiricist) 3/Swashbuckler (inspired blade) 1 | HP 40/40+9/9 | AC 18 Tch. 14, Ff. 14 | Fort +5. Ref +10, Will +2 | Resist cold/electricity/fire: 5 | Init +5 | Perception +11; darkvision 60 ft. | "Jackdaw"

Good point! 1d6 ⇒ 2


Forged Map | Rebels Map

good catch but even the DC16 is not enough to get anything specific. Since you were close, you'd know she is a Kyton outsider, but not which type or features/weaknesses.

(For the record if you are within 2 of the DC for KN:monster checks, I will at least give monster type/subtype (outsider/kyton, etc) and name. I am not sure there is any official ruling on this, but sometimes just knowing type of something is helpful and should be easier than the full check.

Also, Sidius, you are up now - you can start summoning, but she is a 5' step away from disrupting the long casting time, so you can reconsider, if desired. Arcos was a bit further back.


AKA "Kyda" Halfling Dawnflower Dervish 4 | HP: 39/39 AC:19 T:15 F:15 | Saves F:6 R:10 W:5 | Init: 4 | Per: 8 | CMB:1 CMD:15 | Speed 30ft | Active: Protection from Law

FWIW, if Talvek takes a step straight back (he can still attack from there), she won't be able to attack both Arcos and Sidius next round (barring another area attack). If both were summoning, she would have to choose which one to try to disrupt. If Sidius takes a 5ft step to the right side of the map, it looks like he might have some cover from a pillar.

The good thing about summoning celestial creatures is that their Smite Evil bypasses DR.

Feel free to move Talvek as Lubella indicates, I cannot do so on mobile.


AKA "Kyda" Halfling Dawnflower Dervish 4 | HP: 39/39 AC:19 T:15 F:15 | Saves F:6 R:10 W:5 | Init: 4 | Per: 8 | CMB:1 CMD:15 | Speed 30ft | Active: Protection from Law

Moved Talvek and Sidius' tokens as per their instructions.

Note that Summon Monster has a range of 25 ft + 5 ft/2 lvls, so Arcos' Eagle could be summoned right next to the enemy, and thus make a full attack.


Forged Map | Rebels Map

I placed eagle token onto the map adjacent to the woman. Arcos still will have his action this round as well as the eagle's full attack.


Tiefling Investigator (empiricist) 3/Swashbuckler (inspired blade) 1 | HP 40/40+9/9 | AC 18 Tch. 14, Ff. 14 | Fort +5. Ref +10, Will +2 | Resist cold/electricity/fire: 5 | Init +5 | Perception +11; darkvision 60 ft. | "Jackdaw"

Mleh. To be entirely honest, I find myself quite demotivated about our current situation. It feels like we did everything right to try and be smart about our approach, we ticked all the prep boxes, tricked the guards, tricked the warden - bam! Unbluffable outsider with DR and regeneration, and our best damage dealer is not even in the room. It feels unfair and I don't even know if we'll be able to get out of this one.


AKA "Kyda" Halfling Dawnflower Dervish 4 | HP: 39/39 AC:19 T:15 F:15 | Saves F:6 R:10 W:5 | Init: 4 | Per: 8 | CMB:1 CMD:15 | Speed 30ft | Active: Protection from Law

I understand your frustration (being small seems to be a crippling disadvantage for this mission), but there's still hope. You've probably got the torturer down to about half health or below (admittedly with a couple of lucky crits). I'm just crossing my fingers that she's not resistant to electrical damage. Perhaps Arcos has a magic missile spell memorized?

Sidius should try a Knowledge Planes check as well (I don't think Arcos is trained in it). Talvek could whisper to Lubella that you're fighting a Kyton, and see if she knows anything about them (a longshot, given that her Knowledge Planes is only +5).

I can't see how Lubella can get in there to help you, but I'm trying to be as close as possible, in case an unforeseen opportunity arises.


Forged Map | Rebels Map

You definitely did the right things getting past the warden. That would be a tough fight as well.

But to be honest, this outsider would have been a tough fight with the full party. With half a party, the combat is definitely stacked against you. Lubella and Fhingle are not more than 50' away, but it could get dicey if both the warden and dottari are added to the mix. They do not seem to be eager to join at this point...unless pushed into it.


AKA "Kyda" Halfling Dawnflower Dervish 4 | HP: 39/39 AC:19 T:15 F:15 | Saves F:6 R:10 W:5 | Init: 4 | Per: 8 | CMB:1 CMD:15 | Speed 30ft | Active: Protection from Law

I think Talvek's main attack scored a critical hit for 20 points of damage.

Arcos' Mystic Bolts are supernatural, so at least those won't be affected by spell resistance. Of course, who knows if kytons have electrical resistance.


Tiefling Investigator (empiricist) 3/Swashbuckler (inspired blade) 1 | HP 40/40+9/9 | AC 18 Tch. 14, Ff. 14 | Fort +5. Ref +10, Will +2 | Resist cold/electricity/fire: 5 | Init +5 | Perception +11; darkvision 60 ft. | "Jackdaw"

I don't have access to my HeroLab at the moment, but I think with the mutagen Talvek has an AC of 20.


Forged Map | Rebels Map

Good catch - I had the 15 pts from the critical (less DR), and she regenerated 3 hp. But my math skills failed miserably. She is at 34+15-3 damage for -46 (not -42).

And Talvek if your AC is 20, then she missed the iterative. I was just going by the AC18 in your status line. So we can remove that extra damage. :)

I'm literally out of things to do, other than keep rehexing her attack.

At least it's not like slumber where I can't spam it.
