Phoebe moves up behind the pillar, hoping to catch Blue off-guard.

Bluff to Trick: 1d20 + 19 - 20 ⇒ (19) + 19 - 20 = 18 CR 18

If all successful, Debilitating Trick to make it flat-footed until the beginning of my next turn.

Persephone manages to trick and hit Blue.

3-98 Expedition into Pallid Peril

Patrick knows that these are called Hounds of Tindalos and that they have a gaze attack that shreds a person. Mental attacks against them are a bad idea.

Game Mechanics:

Hounds of Tindalos
NE Medium outsider (evil, extraplanar)

Ripping Gaze (Su) The gaze's damage is magical. A creature that succeeds at its save is immune to that hound's gaze for 24 hours.

Otherworldly Mind (Ex) Any creature that uses a mind-affecting effect on a hound or communicates with it telepathically must attempt a DC 17 Will saving throw. A creature that fails takes 4d10 damage and becomes confused for 2d4 rounds. This is a mind-affecting effect.

Blue Reflex: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (15) + 10 = 25

The blue hound successfully avoids the worst of the electrical discharge.

Dov moves up closer behind Phoebe and, unsure if these creatures have any resistances, will try and identify them.

Biohacker custom microlab: 21 + 20 = 41


3-98 Expedition into Pallid Peril

Dr. Doc knows that they are immune to mind-affecting effects and poison. They are also resistant to physical damage unless the weapon is magical. They fly via magic and have some other magical powers related to time manipulation. They also have a special sense that allows them to track beings that mess with time and space.

Game Mechanics:

Hounds of Tindalos
NE Medium outsider (evil, extraplanar)

Speed 40 ft., fly 40 ft. (flight, average)

Defensive Abilities otherworldly mind; DR 10/magic; Immunities mind-affecting effects, poison

Spell-Like Abilities
Constant—flight (3rd level; 40-ft. speed; self only)

Discern Prey (Su) Hounds of Tindalos can sense their prey, which is any creature that violates the laws of time and space, including trying to use magic to enter the Drift. A hound senses such creatures as if it had blindsense with a range of 120 feet, and the hound always knows the direction toward its prey. This directional sense works at any distance and across planar boundaries. If the prey is protected from divination, the hound must attempt a check, rolling 1d20 + the hound's CR against a DC that equals 11 + the caster level or CR of the creator of the antidivination effect. On a success, the hound ignores the effect. If the check fails, the hound can't try again and can't sense the prey while the effect lasts.

Red Hound stares at Teddington and then moves up next to him.
Ripping Gaze, slashing damage: 4d6 ⇒ (6, 6, 6, 4) = 22 Fort DC 17

Blue Hound flies towards Felise. Didn’t she mention having problems with these hounds before? Going to be really difficult for her to get the Eternity Arch attuned if she is attacked.

Green Hound flies at Persephone and bites into her hard!
bite: 1d20 + 16 ⇒ (20) + 16 = 36
Piercing damage: 1d8 + 9 ⇒ (6) + 9 = 15

3-98 Expedition into Pallid Peril

Oops, just realized that I’m doing Gaze wrong. Will fix it going forward.
Was wondering why these were so much weaker than in Pathfinder…

Anyone within 30’ of a Hound must make the DC 17 Fort save or take 4d6 Slashing
Fortunately, once you save you become immune to it.

Looking Obliquely::
An opponent that avoids looking directly at the creature's face (either by following the creature's shadow or by tracking it in a reflective surface) or that looks at the creature through a camera or heads-up display gains a +4 circumstance bonus to the saving throw. However, the creature with the gaze ability gains concealment against that opponent.

Blocking Its Vision::
By completely blocking or covering its own visual sensors, an opponent doesn't need to attempt a save against the gaze. However, the creature with the gaze ability gains total concealment against that opponent.

Alistair flies to the middle of the room to get a better view of blue. Unfortunately, Blue gets a good view of him, as well.

Fortitude: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (11) + 6 = 17

He then tries to hold Blue in place with powerful gravity.

Gravity Hold Blue must make a DC 19 Fortitude save or be immobilized


3-98 Expedition into Pallid Peril

Blue Fortitude: 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (17) + 6 = 23

It seems gravity is one of those things that Blue doesn’t obey.

Patrick moves back and takes a shot at Blue
gun v eac: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (6) + 8 = 14 force: 1d6 + 4 ⇒ (1) + 4 = 5

Presumably that is yet another miss. Patrick just sighs. He should be used to this by now.


3-98 Expedition into Pallid Peril

@Patrick, did you start your turn within 30’ of one? If so, need a Fort save

Patrick misses with his pistol.

Dov winces as he gets torn up a bit by the Green hound's gaze. Seeing the blue hound threaten the portal and their new ally, he rushes back in that direction...

Fort: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21
...and feels he can shake this effect off, now.

He targets the flat-footed Blue hound with a double-tap and special biohack he hasn't used on this trip before...

Anchoring Liquidator Caustoject: 1d20 + 12 + 1 ⇒ (7) + 12 + 1 = 20 vs. EAC
Acid Damage: 1d4 + 7 ⇒ (2) + 7 = 9

Anesthesiology Inhibitor Biohack: Deal 7 *extra* Nonlethal Damage and gives the target the Fatigued condition (DC 19 Fortitude Save for half NL damage and no fatigue). If target is already fatigued, it is Exhausted instead. This is a poison effect.


3-98 Expedition into Pallid Peril

Patrick is immun to the hounds gaze.

GM Bret wrote:

Having read the biohack here, I don’t think it does anything against these creatures because of their immunity.

Dr. Dov hits the creature and the acid burns it. The inhibitor has no effect, causing the doctor to have a “Doh!” moment.

The Blue Hound is hanging on to existence by a single paw. The NL would have taken it out on a failed save.

By the way just to get this out there in the two rounds we had between the previous fight and this one I definitely went ahead and reloaded the battery on this artillery laser since that was basically my last shot with it.

Fort vs Green: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (5) + 7 = 12

Mel makes a grunt as the wave of cuts hits her through the Hound of Tindalos' eyes. However she tries to keep her focus and moves around Persephone, hoping to aid her in removing the threat in front of her. "Hold on there, we'll get rid of this thing before it can do too much damage!

Yes, you had two rounds to do anything like quaffing potions, reloading, etc.

The mist within the Eternity Arch clears, as the time dimensional is shunted away and replaced by the transparent figure of a dragonkin clad in an explorer’s outfit. “I’ve attuned it!” Felise cries, her face lighting up. “The Arch is stabilized!” As the dragonkin figure within the Eternity Arch grows more substantial, Felise reaches toward her, tears streaming down her face. “Heraxia! Is it really you?” She cries.

“Felise!” The dragonkin reaches out, but as their hands near one another, Heraxia’s flickers, fading into insubstantial mist once more. “So, you’ve been investigating the Arch too?” Heraxia looks over the Starfinders assembled around the room, blinking back tears. “I see you’ve been getting some assistance as well. The Pathfinders have been helping me try to return home from here, but...”

Felise examines the archway for a moment and frowns, quickly sobering. “It’s not strong enough, is it? It’s completely attuned to your time, but you’re still wavering.”

“I can’t step through,” Heraxia says. “This time keeps pulling at me, holding me here. But I think I have a solution. The Pathfinders will put me into stasis by sealing me in a chamber within the ruins. Look for the secret door at the back of this room, behind the Eternity Arch.” Her voice grows fainter as she speaks. “I’ll...be waiting...for you...”

As Heraxia disappears, the Arch’s glow fades, the symbols carved on it freezing in place. Felise turns back to the Starfinders, drawing herself up to her full height. She takes a deep breath, then says, “Well, let’s go have a look.” After a careful inspection of the chamber’s back wall, she presses a panel, and the wall swivels open to reveal an ovular vault built of smooth red stone devoid of any edges or angles. A sealed metal and glass sarcophagus stands at its center.

Felise hurries over and, examining the pod’s controls, then quickly adjusts a few dials. The pod slides open with a hiss, revealing Heraxia’s sleeping form. As Felise reaches for her hand, the dragonkin’s eyes open. “At last,” Heraxia murmurs, taking Felise’s hand.

“At last,” Felise echoes, beaming. Through her tears of joy, she glances back at the Starfinders. “We are together again. We can’t thank you enough for your help. If you ever need anything at all, please don’t hesitate to call on us.”

That concludes the adventure! Thanks for playing, everyone, and especially all the Table GMs whose hard work made this event possible.
