Nothing at all to do with you, bud. :)

So, um, is this what your looking for?

THAT'S IT! I KNEW it was somewhere, for crying out loud! Jeez. I bet you I looked past that thing a million times. Man, that wears me out when I can't find stuff that I KNOW I saw somewhere.

Thanks, Elathras! Sheesh. Probably time I get new glasses. It's been a couple of years. They're just so dang expensive though. Even WITH insurance. :P

I'm not sure how Guarded Stance works for the others. Do they have to spend a move action to get it to work?

If it does work that way, it only last 2 rounds but at least you can activate it again if you want.

Looking on nethys, Rage Song specifies that abilities that require standard actions to use can't be shared. The actual stance rage powers all use move actions to activate , presumably during rage. Nothing else is mentioned on them in raging song. So... it seems that to enter a stance rage, we would have to spend a sepwrate move action.

If you want to achieve a similar effect to guarded stance, perhaps the beast totem line is better? The level 6 totem gants everyone a natrual armor bonus equal to 1 +1 per 4 skald levels, and doesnt cost an action for others to use. And the level 10 one grants the melee characters pounce.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Okay. Will go with that instead. Having to figure out what rage powers go well for the team is a beating. For me anyway. I've no idea what's good and what's not.

Beast totem it is then. Sounds good. That way, you all don't have to jack with move actions and all that.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Crap! I've got Celestial totem already. It won't let me select Beast totem. This is starting to piss me off more and more. Ugh.

Now that I look at it, THAT'S a stupid choice. I got nothing. I don't freaking know anymore.

You could always ask for a retrain or pay that cost. I believe it's like... 180 g to retrain one class feature at level 6, which is doable.

Just go lesser beast totem + beast totem + greater beast totem later. There are other good rage powers like superstitious and sudden strike I think, but nothing quite as strong as a huge passive ac bonus to everyone + giving all melee characters pounce in the late game.

Actually... i just realised that lesser beast totem, normally not that great as people tend to use weapons instead of claws, is *extremely* good for elena's summons. It essentially gives them two extra attacks each round. :O

How do I go about doing that? I don't know how retraining works or what's involved in all that.

How does it work for your summons? I truly don't get it so that's why I ask. I mean, if it does then that's cool with me! I'm just curious as to how.

Google Pathfinder retraining rules for the full explanation. The general formula 10 gp x character level x days needed to retrain x , where x is what you want to retrain. A class feature takes 3 days i believe so tbe cost would be 10 x 6 x 3. Since you havent used this fearure before perhaps DBH is kind enoigh to wave the time.requirement?

For summons, they are usually animals that use natural weapons. When you full attack, you attack with each natural weapon you have. Most commonly animals tend to have bite attacks only. If they have no claws, lesser animal totem lets them grow two claws. When they full attack, they can then attack with both their normal natural weapon (the bite) and the claws they now have. A wolf for instance could then bite + claw twice, a python snake could constrict + claw twice. None of my summons as yet normally have accesss to claws, so that's a lot of synergy between rage song and them.


Male Humanly Awesome 'n Totally Rockin' Paladin of Greatness

Oh so what you're saying is, that THEY get the rage benefit too. That's pretty cool. I didn't know that. Interesting.

I'm fairly sure that they do, as they are allies, and it affects all allies. The ones from Herald caller are also intelligent enough to understand and perform direct and specific commands.

There have been discussions in the past on if an animal is too dumb to understand a song and receive a benefit from it. By RAW nothing stops them from getting the performance bonus. Some have argued though that without a rank in linguistics and an int of at least 3 an animal cannot understand common and thus wouldn't be able to understand a song or gain any benefit from it. This leads into a can of worms where perform in general is not always a song like through inspire courage, so why would that work through I.E. dance but not as a song, as well as whether you have to really understand a song for it to invoke magical rage in you. Among other things.

AFAIK there has never been an official ruling stating they cannot, and the argumentation for not feels flimsy to me.

Fire ray crits and good melee damage :)

That said these statues are somewhat terrifying. As written, their special ability is that if a weapon hits them, it takes 3d6 damage and if it takes *any* damage over hardness, it instantly breaks. So... a hardness 10 weapon has a 40% or so chance to break on each hit? That is rough. And that is only a weapon made fully of metal. Most hafted weapons have hsrdness 5 thus a 75% chance to break on each hit. Did they mess up writing this and that it should have been excess damage over the weapons hit ooints rsther than hardness?


Are you sure you want to do that?

Thanks for pointing that out Elena. I had missed that little bit of joy. :)

No problem. Haha! Ha... *winces as Bharak's weapon just broke from taking damage over its hardness*. Normally it wouldn't but these statues have it worded that way. :(

@DBH Elena has sacred summons and she can summon a neutral good, celestial snake as a standard action which should be able to act right away. Unless it's a punishment of sorts for me in which case I guess that's fair for this instance.

Dbh, did we need to use the second water breathing scroll to fight the momsters at the shipwreck fir the half orc, as in was it submerged entirely, or do we still have it? Actiallu Elena probably prepped it herself when she heard they had to go near water. Can i assume we have the scroll?

I'm behind on important things so no update tonight.

Good call. I think it's weird how this is turning into a (de)buff tag, with no actual damage yet attempted. I wonder what would happen if we just waited for all of his buffs to expire. He can't come through the closed gate without us noticing him. Unless there's another way around.

And I can sympathize with Elathras that the guy could be merely defending his "home," which is one of the reasons I'd hope he'd attack first.

Yeah, i hear you. From DBH's last post it seems the Dhampir just opened the gate himself before Bharak got to finish, so we seem to be in imminemt danger with him presumably coming for us.

Regarding the second point, I can understand where the trepidition is coming from. Otoh, this is supposedly a servant of a very evil runelord. Even if his language indicates he has no choice but to stop us, making him more neutral perhaps, he still more or less directly stated he was going to stop us, presumably by attacking, so...

It seemed like a point of view that would be appropriate for a LG person who would prefer to fight 'monsters.' But I put it in a 'thought bubble' because being uncomfortable is not the same as being unwilling. I don't want him to lecture anyone, he wouldn't have made it as a hell knight if he was a lecturer, but I do want to be aware of why he does what he does.

For future reference:

The main issue with us not staying together is that Elena's powerful, spellslot-less heal is a full round action. Thus, if you are not within 10 ft of her, then to heal you, she either has to channel for a little (25%? of what it could be) which also heals enemies, or move to you and then give up spellslots to heal for roughly half the amount the slotless heal can do.

I don't know how hard this guy hits, I don't know if he is tactically sound enough to walk past us all on the ceiling to attack an isolated spellcaster in the back, and thus I'm not saying spreading out is wrong per se, but if you want access to strong healing you generally have to be near Elena.

Okay, that's good to know. Currently, we're all within 10 feet of you.

(Although my suspicion is that this guy isn't as scary as the AP wants us to think he is. My feeling is that we've over-prepared for him.)
